Judge Orders Barr Memo Ordering Cover Up of Trump Conspiring with Russians to be Released

Bet you thought just because you got away with the initial cover up that it would just go away.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal judge has ordered the release of a legal memorandum the Trump-era Justice Department prepared for then-Attorney General William Barr before he announced his conclusion that President Donald Trump had not obstructed justice during the Russia investigation.

The Justice Department had refused to give the March 24, 2019, memorandum to a government transparency group that requested it under the Freedom of Information Act, saying the document represented the private advice of lawyers and was produced before any formal decision had been made and was therefore exempt from disclosure under public records law.

But U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, in a sharp rebuke of Barr, said the Justice Department had obscured “the true purpose of the memorandum” when it withheld the document.

She said the memo from the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel contained “strategic, as opposed to legal advice” and that both the writers and the recipients already understood that Trump would not be prosecuted. Though government agencies may withhold from disclosure documents that reflect internal deliberations before a decision is made, that protection does not apply in this case since a conclusion had already been reached, the judge wrote.

“In other words, the review of the document reveals that the Attorney General was not then engaged in making a decision about whether the President should be charged with obstruction of justice; the fact that he would not be prosecuted was a given,” Jackson said in an order dated Monday.

Orange Man gets $617 million in free cash, more to come

Donald Trump, Facing $590 Million in Debt Payments, Gets $617 Million From Property Deal

https://www.newsweek.com/donald-trump-facing-590-million-debt-payments-gets-617-million-property-deal-1588040

Former President Donald Trump, who reportedly has $590 million in debts due over the next four years, is set to receive a $617 million cash payout as part of a bond deal made by Vornado Realty Trust, his longtime majority-stake partners.

Trump apparently scored the massive $600-million plus in cash after investors bought up $1.2 billion of bonds tied to the refinancing of a San Francisco office tower, 555 California. Trump has a 30 percent minority stake in the building, which makes up a massive portion, as much as $800 million, of his entire net worth. Because Vornado holds the majority stake, Trump doesn't have any control over the two properties he owns with them, the second being 1290 Avenue of the Americans in New York City. The windfall he "stumbled into" comes at a great time for Trump, analysts said, because numerous banks and businesses cut ties with him in the wake of the January 6 U.S. Capitol riot.

The $617 million cash infusion from the Vornado refinancing in San Francisco is likely to precede another large payout for Trump's 1290 Avenue of the Americans office tower. Steve Roth, Vornado's chief executive officer, told investors this past week, that building is "on deck" for refinancing, Bloomberg News reported.

Trump has a lengthy financial record which includes numerous corporate bankruptcies, suing lenders and provoking nearly every bank except for Deutsche to run the other way. But with $617 million of cash and another lucrative refinancing deal about to fall in his lap, analysts said he may have already dug his way out of more than a half-billion of debt his Trump Organization has sat on since entering the White House.

Bald men twice as likely to suffer severe covid

No.841725 ViewReplyOriginalReport
ew research shows they spend up to twice as long in hospital with Covid than those who still have a full head of hair.

Scientists say men’s Covid vulnerability largely comes down to male sex hormones called androgens.

Men who are genetically more sensitive to androgens appear to be more likely to suffer severe Covid.

Of 65 men hospitalised with the infection, those with high CAG levels had worse Covid outcomes in the 60 days following their hospitlisation.

They spent 47 days in hospital, on average, and 70.6 per cent were admitted to ICU.

For comparison, those with low CAG levels spent an average of 25 days in hospital, and 45.2 per cent were admitted to ICU.
The team reported in June that among men hospitalised with Covid in three Madrid hospitals, 79 per cent of had androgenetic alopecia.

This was dramatically disproportionate to the expected number of 31 to 53 percent in a similar age-matched population.

The link between baldness and severe symptoms was considered so strong the experts called for it to be considered a risk factor.

"We really think that baldness is a perfect predictor of severity."

New US fad:eat rotten meat to get high

No.841041 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Those taking part in the trend have dubbed it as "high meat" and use meat that has been left to rot over a period of weeks, months and in some cases years.

The participants don't cook the meat, and instead eat the grey flesh raw.

The meat used is often covered in slime and little patches of grey mould - with some of the meat even having turned grey or brown as it decomposes.

One Twitter user said a friend had convinced them to eat the meat raw and rotten and that it "actually felt great", they were also asked if they became sick after eating the meat and they replied "not at all".

Another explained: "Normally I has mason jars where I leave meat or chicken in it. Let it sit in the fridge for a few weeks and then eat it.

"I get an immediate high. Rotten meat is the best cure for depression."

The reaction could be down to a number of things including the delirium caused be severe poisoning or the reaction to the bacteria hitting the stomach.

People who champion the primal diet - which includes eating raw meat have however admitted that it can have adverse effects.

Aajonus Vonderplanitz, one of the main advocates of the primal diet previously said that it made people "ill and explosively incontintent", which they dubbed detoxification.

One YouTube user also previously filmed himself eating raw, rotten meat that was a year old.

User sv3rige described the taste as "overwhelming and spicy".

He said it was dry because of how long it had been sitting there and continued to eat the whole jar of meat.

SOS COLOMBIA

No.840554 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I make this post so that the 4chan community finds out about the current situation of colmbia,
It all started with a project that tried to raise taxes in a crazy way, which is why a national strike was started. Now the government is trying to silence the population so that nothing that happens is shown to the international media, since for a few days the current president of Colombia, Ivan Duque Marquez, has ordered the militarization of the cities and giving the order to open fire on the protesters. and civilians who are in the protest, are also blocking internet signals in some cities but mainly in Cali. The most relevant thing that happened today is that a helicopter of the national army opened fire on civilians in the street
THIS IS AN SOS MESSAGE TO THE WORLD WE NEED HELP.
(the government is just making all Protestants look like criminals, don't believe what most of the news say)

Xenophobe Joe Biden Bans Travel From India as Coronavirus Cases Surge

No.837487 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-04-30/biden-bans-travel-from-india-as-coronavirus-cases-surge

President Joe Biden banned most travel to the U.S. from India beginning Tuesday as the country struggles to combat the worst surge of coronavirus cases in the world.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended the ban, which won’t apply to U.S. citizens or permanent residents.

“The policy will be implemented in light of extraordinarily high Covid-19 caseloads and multiple variants circulating in the India,” Psaki said in a statement.

India recorded 387,000 new infections on Thursday, a record high, and nearly 3,500 deaths, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. Gayle Smith, the State Department’s coordinator for global Covid response and health security, told reporters in a conference call Friday that the surge in India is “very, very serious.”
