Headline: 'Ruble Tumbles as U.S. Sets Out New Sanctions on Russia' - a conspiracy theory

Seems unbelievable at first take. But then consider that the main players in this conspiracy theory are Trump, Putin and the Russian oligarchs. Doesn't seem so far-fetched now.

Here's the NY Times headline from today:
"Ruble Tumbles as U.S. Sets Out New Sanctions on Russia". A terrible thing for Russia, right? Now, what if you knew this was going to happen because your boss found out in Helsinki and told you when to short the ruble?
Looks a bit different now, doesn't it?

In other other news, Omarosa Manigault-Newman's aptly-named tell all book ("Unhinged") detailing her time in the seamy underbelly of the Trump administration, is to be released Aug 14.

Perhaps to whip up some extra froth, she says she has tapes (ooh!) of conversations with Trump, done without his knowledge, but the word from those that have heard them suggest they amount to nothing but completely "anodyne" chit-chat between the two former reality-TV stars.

Of slightly more interest is her description of the purge that occurred during the Mooch's short tenure:

Quote

“Very low-key, Ivanka went around to the original Trumpers, the loyal soldiers, and asked the team to compile a list of suspected leakers...and, once she had it, she would give it to Scaramucci, so he could fire them all. The final list that was texted to me on July 22 had ten names on it.”

Ivanka and the Mooch = White House plumbers.

Only the best people, he said. Hoo boy.

In other, other, other news, Paul Manafort told Rick Gates to inflate his net income tenfold on bank documents, and hid the existence of other mortgages, so as to try to win a $5 million loan from "Banc of California". You know why?

To "flip houses in Los Angeles".

I'm...speechless. He's obviously a renaissance man, this Mr. Manafort.
