Well, it looks like IT brought out the BFH, and I am able to post KITM summaries again!
Woodward and Bernstein are no David Waldman and Greg Dworkin, though all four have made it their business to track not very bright guys when things get out of hand. Let’s all follow the money:
Silicon Valley Bank played fast and loose with investor money, but faster and looser than these banks are able to get away with. Other fast and loose banks hope to fill the vacuum. If we do not bail out fly-by-night hucksters, who will be left to huck?
Donald Trump is going to run on the Gop ticket in 2024. He is. Ron DeSantis can stop wasting his time. Republicans who want a more pro-Ukraine contender or pro-anything that Trump is not interested in, can give up now. Fulton County investigators have turned up another perfect Trump phone call. The SEC found $8 million in Russian loans to Truth Social. None of that will slow Trump’s destruction. Just ask Fox.
Ho Wan Kwok, aka Miles Guo, and aka Guo Wengui is such a caricature Bond villain that his behavior would embarrass even Elon Musk. Of course, Steven KG Bannon would be Guo’s chief henchman/fanboy. Disappointingly, it didn’t take ninjas in a fleet of helicopters to finally arrest Guo on his million different charges. His lair did go up in flames though, so that’s something. Kwok-Miles-Wengui was a basic Musk when it came to petty Twitter feuds, however.
George Santos lies all the time. Well, that’s a lie, George did tell the truth that one time when he bragged about making a half mil on commission selling expensive stuff to rich people. Now the FBI is looking into that as well.
