Remember when Ivanka Trump and Jarred Kushner went to Dubrovnik, Croatia this past summer? Remember how they met up with Wendy Deng and David Geffen for relaxation and sightseeing? Was that some kind a distraction (aka maskirovka) for something more nefarious, knowing the media would cover them along side Deng and Geffen? Did Russian oligarch, Demitry Rybolovlev, meet up with Kushner at some point? Another diarist wrote a diary about Rybolovlev being Putin’s courier. I think they were on to something. Several others have also written similar diaries about Trump’s connection to Rybolovlev. What was he doing in Croatia the same time that Ivanka and Kushner were there? Sightseeing? Show me the pics. He’s well known.
I know Croatia very well. I’ve been to Croatia about 18-20 times over the past 21 years, including Dubrovnik and Hvar about 5 times. If I wanted to meet someone in secret without anybody knowing, (or just swim in the nude), I’d go to a hidden cove on one of the 1,000+ islands off the Croatian coast in a small boat, perhaps the southwest side of Hvar, which is pretty desolate.
From Dubrovnik, Ivanka and Kushner went to Hvar, which is an island about 3-4 hours by boat. Ivanka herself documented being in both Dubrovnik and Hvar on Instagram. What’s interesting is that she and American media sources waited until August 14th to post pics and stories, while Croatian media reported her in Dubrovnik on August 12th and arriving August 11th. Why wait and post both pics days later? Was she trying to hide something?
Let’s look at the Evidence
It’s a well known fact that Russian billionaire, Dmitry Rybolovlev, purchased Donald Trump’s Palm Beach, Florida mansion for $95 million in 2008.
It’s also a well known that Rybolovlev’s private jet was in the same cities or near several of his campaign events last year.
Rybolovlev claims he doesn’t know Trump and has never met him. What about Kushner?
Reports have surfaced in recent days that Rybolovlev's jet was parked near Trump's in North Carolina a few days before the election. A few days earlier, the two were both in Las Vegas for separate events.
A representative for Rybolovlev told McClatchy last week that it was "pure coincidence" that the two planes were parked next to each other. Rybolovlev, 50, has also never met the President personally, either, the representative told McClatchy, and "has no connection whatsoever to Mr. Trump or his team of advisers."
After reading several news reports about the Trump rally connections, I noticed Rybolovlev’s private jet was also in Dubrovnik, Croatia around the same time that Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump were there in August. So I started digging.
It turns out that not only was Dmitry Rybolovlev’s private jet in Dubrovnik from August 10-13, so was his private yacht. I’ve confirmed it to be in the Adriatic, moving towards Dubrovnik the night before with Dubrovnik being the destination on August 10th. I have the proof below.
A few days ago I requested information about Rybolovlev’s private yacht, “Anna” or “My Anna”, IMO: 1008994, from vesselfinder.com, which is one of several maritime tracking services, for the dates of August 10th-14th, 2016. I received a reply this morning. While I have not purchased the whole set of data, the first position and info of the ship was on the attached Excel file. See below.
I have checked the AIS data availability for the requested vessel ANNA within the specified time range from 10 Aug, 2016 to 14 Aug, 2016.
We have 925 position records in 5-minute time resolution. You can check the time stamp of each position record in the attached movements report. The cost of the full data set in the report is 105 EUR.
If you however, might be interested into data at lower resolution, I can offer you the movements report in 1-hour time resolution for 55 EUR.
Data included in the vessel movements report is:
- DATE / TIME - time stamp of last received position report (in UTC)
- MMSI number
- LATITUDE - coordinates (WGS84)
- LONGITUDE - coordinates (WGS84)
- COURSE - course over ground (in degrees)
- SPEED - speed over ground (in knots)
- HEADING - heading of the vessel's hull (in degrees). 511 means that there is no heading data.
- IMO number
- NAME - vessel's name
- CALLSIGN - vessel's call sign
- AIS TYPE - vessel's type according to AIS specification (look at Ship Type codes at http://www.bosunsmate.org/ais/message5.php ).
- A - distance between AIS receiver and bow
- B - distance between AIS receiver and stern (i.e. Ship Lenght = A + B)
- C - distance to port
- D - distance to starboard (i.e. Ship Width = C + D)
- DRAUGHT - vessel's draught at the time of the position report
- DESTINATION - destination port (as entered by the Master)
- ETA - estimated time of arrival (as entered by the Master)
Execution time: 2 business days
Payment method: online payment with credit/debit card or PayPal
I look forward to hearing from you.
The pic below is from the Excel document from vesselfinder.com that I converted to jpg . It’s a little hard to see, but it’s the first line of the document and gives some important information. I’ll transcribe it into a table to make it easier to see. I’ve also placed the ship’s GPS coordinates onto a map for visual representation.
Want to add another wrinkle to the twist? Rybolovlev’s yacht was recently photographed and tracked next to the yacht of Trump backer Robert Mercer in the British Virgin Islands. Rybolovlev claims to not know him either.
But speculation again was stoked when his state-of-the-art yacht Anna sat anchored in the British Virgin Islands on Friday night and another equally resplendent luxury liner, the Sea Owl, sidled up, according to a website that tracks the movement of yachts.
The owner of the dark-hulled yacht? President Donald Trump’s biggest financial supporter and Breitbart News moneyman, Robert Mercer.
A source provided The Palm Beach Post photos of Mercer’s Sea Owl and Rybolovlev’s Anna anchored off the North Sound near Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands. One photo shows the two yachts separated only by a few sailing vessels between them.
The two vessels were a couple hundred feet away from each other on Friday and about 1,000 feet apart as late as Monday, according to data from www.marinetraffic.com obtained by the Palm Beach Post.
I sent this information to Kevin Hall from McClatchy and John Mashey from Huffpost, who wrote the stories on Rybolovlev’s jet at the same events as Trump. Both responded and will look into it. Let’s hope there’s more to it.
