Post by marindem01 »

Former White House Adviser Steve Bannon Has Been Arrested With Three Men On Fraud Charges.

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/steve-ba ... f4f675a933.

Steve Bannon, a former chief strategist in President Donald Trump’s White House, has been indicted by federal prosecutors in Manhattan, New York.

Bannon and three others ― Brian Kolfage, Andrew Badolato and Timothy Shea ― were arrested Thursday for their roles in “defrauding hundreds of thousands of donors in connection with an online crowdfunding campaign known asWe Build the Wallthat raised more than $25 million,” prosecutors announced Thursday morning.

Bannon was arrested by.....wait for it.....Agents of U.S. Postal Service.

You know, the people he was grifting from were the kind of deplorables who so wanted the Wall they'd support a scheme like this.

That said, I hate rip off artists regardless of who they are ripping off. And IMHO, Msr. Bannon has been one for a long time, even before he got into politics, see his stint with a company that made its money gold-farming and selling WoW/MMO virtual gold ...

This Is the Very Expensive Yacht Steve Bannon Got Arrested On---
It reportedly belongs to a Chinese fugitive.


On Thursday morning, federal agents arrested Steve Bannon off the coast of Connecticut on a 150-foot yacht named “Lady May,” charging him with defrauding hundreds of thousands of people who donated more than $25 million to fund a private wall along the US-Mexico border.

Lady May has been touted has one of the world’s most sophisticated superyachts and is currently on sale for $27.9 million. The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday that it belongs to Guo Wengui, an exiled Chinese businessman.

It's amazing how stupid people are donating money to people like Bannon and his ilk thinking they're supporting Trump and his policies. Let's be clear, people like Bannon are predators targeting the stupid, the foolish, and the ignorant to line their pockets. Nothing more, nothing less.

Trump Supported the Private Border Wall at the Center of a Fraud Case, a Close Ally Said
He’s since distanced himself from the project.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), left, and Brian Kolfage, the head of We Build the Wall, overlook the privately funded fence along the US-Mexico border in Sunland Park, New Mexico, last year.

In January 2019, Kris Kobach told the New York Times that President Trump had given his blessing to an
effort to build a private wall along the border with Mexico. The organizers of the project are now facing federal fraud charges.

Kobach, a former Kansas secretary of state and prominent Trump supporter, was serving as an
adviser to “We Build the Wall,” the group that raised more than $25 million to build the wall.
“I talked with the president, and the ‘We Build the Wall Effort’ came up,” Kobach told the Times.
“The president said ‘the project has my blessing, and you can tell the media that.’”

The "Chinese businessman" whose yacht Bannon was caught on is the one who is working with him on their supposed "Free China/China Democracy" movement.

A month or two ago, they had banners flying over NYC proclaiming that "China would be free". The guy also has ties to our favorite nut pub, Epoch Times.

Now don't get me wrong, I'd love to see a free and democratic China, but would I trust this dynamic duo to deliver on that promise? After Bannon's been busy kissing the ass of right wing nationalists all over Europe? No way. Of course, as I told somebody, I have my doubts Xi Jinping is quaking in his boots, either. I don't think either of them have much support inside China.

His Twitter had no tweets about it mid morning. There is this:





I wouldn't assume that this is something happening to Trump, it might be what Trump is doing.

Inside Steve Bannon’s Alleged Scheme To Fleece Trump Voters Who Wanted A Border Wall---
The president’s family denies knowing anything about the scheme, but a HuffPost investigation
reveals close ties.
...
Trumpworld Connections--
Trump claimed on Thursday that he doesn’t “know anything about the [We Build the Wall] project at all,” and his press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, said that he “does not know the people involved with this project.” But last August, Amanda Shea — Timothy Shea’s wife and a member of We Build the Wall’s leadership team — said on Twitter that she had met with the president and discussed the project in detail.

“Had the pleasure of meeting with @realDonaldTrump personally last week in the Hamptons, answered very specific questions about the wall @WeBuildTheWall built,” she tweeted. “[Trump] said I really know my stuff & our group needs to bid the whole wall project.”

Trump Jr. and his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, an adviser for the Trump reelection campaign, were prominently featured on the We Build the Wall website with quotes praising the project. They also were key speakers at a fundraising event.

“This is private enterprise at its finest,” Trump Jr. said of We Build the Wall. “What you guys are doing is pretty amazing. Started from a grassroots effort and it’s just doing some wonderful things for an important issue.”

I saw something at Fox, it's why I commented above, "I wouldn't assume that this is something happening to Trump, it might be what Trump is doing."

If Trump's got the DOJ doing what he wants and people have been worried about that. If he has that, then he might have pulled strings to cause Bannon to be arrested. Speculation abounds.

The court filed charging document looks OK. It looks like they have a really solid case and are likely to get a conviction. And it's a 20 year kind of bad crime.

This is what I saw at Fox which caused me to wonder, it didn't seem like they thought Bannon is innocent, or that it will hurt Trump:

i had only checked their website the news site...ive no way to force my tv to show them.
their web says nothing nada about ole steve-o.

i get your suggestion tho. the sadist has tells and hints. his entire bullshit about the USPO
and taking their equipment away for fuck sake---who the fuck does shit like that???, fuck
with the merican mail system so many citizens count on daily and he wants to fuck it up.
and he hints at things soon before some outrageous news breaks About what he has
been projecting for some weeks prior. generally illegal news involving his pals.
its a fucking pattern.

he tries to destroy the reputation of the USPS right prior to them taking an action that grossly
affects Him personally. so...he tries to DOMINATE THE ENTIRE US POSTAL SYSTEM.

this is behavior of a physically abusive male striking and striking out. his physically abusive
nature is impossible to hide or alter and it shows intensely when he feels threatened.

he has one layer consumed with immediate gratificationS from hurting other humans.

thats it. as deep as it gets.

about the only other RWG who enjoyed the sadist was eppystein...he liked abusing people too.
the other RWGs dont like the sadist.
