David Pecker, the former CEO of American Media Inc. which owned the scandal-plagued National Enquirer, was expected to provide pivotal testimony against Trump. He was to detail the infamous “catch and kill” practice—a method used by the tabloid to purchase and suppress damaging stories about Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign.

However, under cross-examination, Pecker’s revelations seemed to unravel the narrative that had been carefully constructed by the prosecution. Pecker testified that it was not Trump, but he and former Trump attorney Michael Cohen who were primarily concerned about potentially harmful stories due to Trump’s celebrity status and history with women.

Pecker, who served as the CEO of the Enquirer’s parent company at the time, stated in his testimony that in 2015, he agreed to act as Trump’s “eyes and ears” and would inform Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, about any potentially harmful stories. He detailed a strategy called “catch and kill,” which involved acquiring the rights to these stories and then not publishing them, thus keeping them secret.

A storage unit for CDM/The Georgia Record was completely burned in a likely arson attack in Miami recently.

The fire report is attached below.

The only units damaged in the massive warehouse with hundreds of lockers, were CDM's unit, along with those alongside.

Upon speaking with the building's owner, CDM was informed the surveillance cameras inside the warehouse were turned off at the time of the fire.

The fire department investigation could not determine a cause of the fire.

The image below shows CDM's locker in the middle of the 3 burned units, and the rest of the facility unscathed.

Joe Biden is considering an executive order that would grant amnesty to the more than 1 million illegal immigrants who married U.S. citizens but were barred from receiving green cards.

The President is looking at taking further actions to address both the southern border crisis and illegal immigrants living in the U.S. ahead of the 2024 election as a large chunk of Americans rank the issue as their top priority.

Although immigrants, even those living in the U.S. illegally, are typically able to gain citizenship when they marry American citizens there are a number of reasons why they may have been given the benefit.

Some main reasons they are denied citizenship in these cases are if the individual has repeatedly entered the country illegally or forged legal documentation in the past.

Opening statements get underway in Manhattan Monday morning in Donald Trump’s “hush money” trial — the first-ever criminal trial of a former American president and, indeed, of a de facto major-party presidential nominee. 

It got me to thinking: Why do we call it the “hush money” trial?

Well, sure, the media-Democrat complex loves the salacious overtones of that spin. But that’s not the real reason. If Trump had robbed a bank or, as he once famously put it, shot someone on Fifth Avenue in broad daylight, we’d be talking about Trump’s bank robbery trial or his murder trial. That is, we’d be talking about the crime.
