I think that for a woman who does what she does, and even does it in front of a camera, breaking an NDA was of little importance.

But doncha love it when just-desserts are served up quickly and warm? I doubt Crazy Porn Lawyer left her with $2.93, never mind $293K.

A federal judge in Los Angeles ordered pornographic actress Stormy Daniels on Tuesday to pay $293,000 for President Donald Trump’s lawyers’ fees and $1000 in sanctions following an unsuccessful attempt to sue him for defamation.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was ordered to pay 75 percent of the president’s legal fees in connection to the case, according to Trump lawyer Charles Harder. Earlier in December, Harder petitioned U.S. District Judge S. James Otero to make Daniels pay $800,000 in fees and other sanctions. The breakdown of the now-ordered payments is $293,000 for legal fees and $1,000 for sanctions.

In November, Otero tossed the adult performer’s lawsuit alleging defamation by the president — because he posted a tweet calling her story of a man threatening her in 2011 to keep quiet about her alleged Trump affair a “con job.”

I am watching the movie “The Untouchables” featuring Elliot Ness.

I am struck by the contrast of such virtue compared to Comey and McCabe.

Mueller, Comey and everything Obama has disgraced America.

What a contradiction for them to be a "conservative magazine," yet extremely critical of the President.

What conservative principle has he been against?

Hi jlallen! It's good to hear from you - and I wish you the same!

BTW: We could often use a good lawyer on this thread to help us navigate the Muddy-Mueller waters.

Judge Nap has gone over to the dark side.

Perhaps you have noticed that for the most part, Dershowitz is doing a great job of giving legal opinions about our President and the Witch Hunt!

But it's not like he's our on-call personal attorney. :)

If you do a search for "yellow vest" at news.google.com, THINKPROGRESS.org comes up as one of the top two news stories/sources.

Yeah, thinkprogress is a news source. WTF... Google are insane, perverts.

Weekly Standard gone, Trump still standing
Don Surber by Don Surber

The SS Weekly Standard sank today. Fittingly, CNN got the scoop on the story. The magazine served as a Judas Goat that led conservative sheep to slaughter.

But as he has done so often, Donald John Trump served as a red pill that revealed the magazine for what it is: junk conservatism.




Better make that last verb was.

Its co-founder and till recently editor, Bill Kristol, cast the anchor that would sink it by joining National Review's "Against Trump" tribute to out-of-touch cruise ship conservatism. In that 2016 issue, Kristol wrote, "Let us, as conservatives, seek guidance from those we admire.

"The Federalist (No. 39) speaks of 'that honorable determination which animates every votary of freedom to rest all our political experiments on the capacity of mankind for self-government.' Hasn’t Donald Trump been a votary merely of wealth rather than of freedom? Hasn’t he been animated by the art of the deal rather than by the art of self-government?

"William F. Buckley Jr. proclaimed, in the founding statement of this journal, that conservatism 'stands athwart history, yelling Stop, at a time when no one is inclined to do so, or to have much patience with those who so urge it.' Hasn’t Donald Trump always been a man inclined to go along — indeed, impatient to get along — with history?"

Standing athwart history is a loser move made by people who seek irrelevance.

After Buckley purged rival conservatives from the movement, no one was left to stand athwart Lyndon Johnson's Great Society of socialist programs. Nixon was stuck appointing liberals to the Supreme Court because Democrats overwhelmingly controlled Senate confirmation.

What Buckley lacked in numbers he made up in verbiage. He stood athwart the railroad tracks as the locomotive headed our way.

But Buckley got respect and a gig on PBS, didn't he?

Kristol showed his true self after we elected Donald John Trump president. Kristol and his sidekick Stephen Hayes railed against President Trump.

Just three months ago, CNBC reported, "One of President Donald Trump's most vocal opponents is creating a political war machine to take on the commander in chief when it comes time for him to run for re-election in 2020.

"Bill Kristol, who served in the administrations of Republican presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, says his nonprofit organization Defending Democracy Together is seeking a GOP candidate to run against Trump in 2020."

No mention was made in the 700-word advertisement to send money to Kristol of Evan McMullin, the man whom Kristol used to front efforts to stand athwart the Trump Train.

President Trump carried 30 states -- the most by any Republican since Reagan was president (his vice president carried 40 states in Reagan's final year as president).

The day before the 2016 election, New Republic mocked him in a story, "Bill Kristol can wipe the smirk off his face."

Nicole Narea wrote, "Earlier this year, Kristol tried and failed to persuade Mitt Romney, Sen. Ben Sasse, retired Marine General Jim Mattis, and conservative columnist David French to run as an alternative to Trump. 'Bill Kristol is making himself look ridiculous,' Pat Buchanan riffed on The McLaughlin Group."

While she then dumped on conservatives as what Hillary called the whole bag of deplorables, Narea showed that Kristol brought liberals and conservatives together.

We all delight in the demise of his creation.

The publication already is on the Trump Schadenfreude List. But we can never have too much Trumpenfreude, can we?


UPDARE: Ace gives a Hangman's Eulogy to T-W-S.
