An envelope containing white powder was found Wednesday morning at the New York State Supreme Courthouse in Lower Manhattan, officials said. The court building, at 60 Centre Street, contains offices belonging to Justice Arthur F. Engoron, the judge who oversaw former President Donald J. Trumpโ€™s civil fraud trial.

Police officers responded to a 911 call at 9:29 a.m. regarding the suspicious powder. A court officer had opened an envelope, and white powder fell onto his pants, the police said.

No injuries were reported, and the building was not evacuated. The police said that the Fire Department had responded to the discovery of the powder and that the investigation continued.

Meanwhile Tyler Boebert has been arrested after going on a one man crime spree. Lauren Boebert's 18 year old son, the father of her first grandchild, is facing at least 20 charges, which involve document theft.

NEW YORK (Reuters) -Donald Trump is unable to post a full bond while he appeals a $454.2 million judgment that a judge imposed in New York state's civil fraud case against him, and wants instead to secure a $100 million bond, his lawyers said on Wednesday

Wow, how strange, a guy worth what the media keeps telling us is several billion, cannot get anyone to loan him a fraction of that, knowing he can make up the repayment?

Wow, it's as though he was full of shit and the media bought it, because they can't do their fucking jobs to verify anything.

If even a fraction of what he owns wasn't already carrying a dozen mortgages, he could post that $450 easy.

But, when all is said and done, it's all leveraged just about to the point of zero value.

I suddenly recall "52 Pick-Up" (1986) starring Roy Scheider as a guy who's being blackmailed over an affair, and the blackmailers think he's rolling in cash. Turns out he only has $52 grand in liquid assets (thus the name of the movie)..... Story by Elmore Leonard, directed by John Frankenheimer. It's actually not bad.....

Expand full comment

Scheider was always good, even if I didn't love the rest of the movie around him.

I like actors who can pull off looking like the "everyman."

Expand full comment

Yep--there's very little of value there, he's deep in debt on all of it, and only a fool would lend him the money and expect to get it back (though a big bribe in the form of a "loan" isn't out of the question). Yet the media took it at face value that he was worth billions, because why would the guy who lies about everything else lie about this?

Expand full comment

Trumpenproletariat, five minutes from now: "That's not how much he HAS, it's just how much he's WORTH! You libcucks don't know anything!!1!!"

Expand full comment

Yep, let's say he (like say, Musk, or Bezos) has the bulk of his worth in non-liquid forms like stock or properties--it would still be a snap to get credit for them, because a lender would know they have cash flow and collateral to cover the amount they owe. The fact that Trump cannot get this is pretty telling.

Expand full comment

You can see it in how quick Musk was able to put together the 40 billion for Twitter. He may have very little liquid, but he had the ridiculously inflated Tesla stock price and a few Saudi connections he hasnโ€™t pissed off yet

Expand full comment

This is also likely why Trump fought so hard against his tax returns being released--most likely they have a lot of loan payments that would indicate he's completely leveraged, and has a negative net worth.

*reads article*

"Hamasโ€™s political leaders have insisted, at least publicly, that any deal to release the more than 100 hostages still being held in Gaza is dependent on a permanent cease-fire and the withdrawal of Israeli troops. Israel has said it will not compromise on its goal of toppling Hamas in Gaza, suggesting it will not agree to a long-term truce."

They want a long-term end to the bloodshed, not a couple of bomb-free weeks to exchange prisoners before going back to mowing the grass for another five months.
