For years, I couldn’t say what he did on The Apprentice.

WHY? 20 year NDA

For 20 years, I couldn’t say what I watched the former president do on the set of the show that changed everything. Now I can.

#MOG8 slate.com/culture/2024/0…
I should know. I was one of four producers involved in the first two seasons. During that time, I signed an expansive nondisclosure agreement that promised a fine of $5 million and even jail time if I were to ever divulge what actually happened. It expired this year.

Trump cannot line up full bond in New York fraud case, offers to post $100 million

In a separate filing, James opposed a stay, calling it "especially inappropriate" given the defendants "all but concede" that Trump does not have enough liquid assets
#MOG8 ca.news.yahoo.com/trump-cannot-l…
"These are precisely the circumstances for which a full bond or deposit is necessary, where defendants' approach would leave (the attorney general's office) with substantial shortfalls once this court affirms the judgment," AG James wrote.

James also said there was "substantial risk" that Trump might not pay up, or might move assets beyond her reach, if he lost his appeal.

She cited the defendants' having "surreptitiously" concealed from the monitor a $40 million transfer, and moved businesses...

Statement from President Joe Biden on Tomorrow’s Visit to Maui, #Hawaii


A whole-of-government response effort with more than 1,000 federal personnel on the ground in…

#MOG whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/…
•To date, the Biden-Harris Administration has approved more than $8 million in assistance to nearly 2,500 households, including nearly $3 million in initial rental assistance. 

•FEMA has made available more than 50,000 meals, 75,000 liters of water, 5,000 cots and 10,000 blankets and shelter supplies to the county government for distribution.

•Thanks to the significant partnership between the Hawaii Fire Relief Housing program administered by the American Red Cross and funded by FEMA, the number of survivors in congregate shelters was reduced by 50% on Thursday. The Red Cross expects to move all survivors who are still in shelters into hotel rooms by next week. More than 300 Red Cross staff are working with partners to ensure people receive help as quickly as possible.

•Last week, President Biden made additional disaster funding available to the state of Hawaii, unlocking the federal government’s ability to cover all eligible expenses for debris removal and emergency protective measures in Maui County and assistance for emergency protective measures for Hawaii County. The President authorized the federal cost share to be increased from 75% to 100% for 30 days that the Governor selects within the first 120 days.

•Nearly 650 personnel from the Department of Defense and 140 members of the Coast Guard are actively participating in the coordinated response to the Western Maui Wildfire.  They are assisting with fire suppression, searching debris for remains, distributing fuel, and providing additional life-sustaining support.

•The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has deployed 62 responders, 16 remote personnel, and 43 contractors who are assisting with public works and engineering support, which includes installing 15 generators for temporary emergency power, planning for debris collection and removal, and scoping potential requirements for temporary construction of critical public facilities such as schools, fire and police stations

The Ukraine Counteroffensive Can Succeed

Ukrainians only have to win and hold in one sector to render virtually all the Russian-held territory west of their advance untenable.

The Russians have to win everywhere all the time.

#MOG time.com/6300772/ukrain…
Russians must defend a ground line of communication consisting of a road and a rail line that runs from Rostov-on-Don at the edge of the Sea of Azov to Crimea.

Vast quantities of food, fuel, ammunition, personnel, and other supplies are required by the tens of thousands of Russian troops

This state of affairs favors Ukraine in an important way. If the Ukrainians can reach the Sea of Azov anywhere and hold their positions, they will have cut the GLOC.

The Russians, thus, have to hold the entire thing.

The Ukrainians only have to win and hold in one sector to render virtually all the Russian-held territory west of their advance untenable

Russia’s Top Five Persistent Disinformation Narratives

Theme 1
Russia is an Innocent Victim #Russophobia

Theme 2
Distort historical narratives

Theme 3
The Collapse of Western Civilization is Imminent


Theme 4
Popular Movements are U.S.-sponsored ‘Color Revolutions’

Theme 5
Reality is Whatever the Kremlin Wants It to Be (fake news)

Trump uses these same narratives

#MOG Image
Theme 1 - Victimhood

Russia turns to one of its favorite labels to attempt to hit back: #Russophobia. After invading Ukraine, the Russian government and state-controlled disinformation outlets accused anyone who questioned Russia’s actions of being xenophobic Russophobes.
