Notes From All Over, Part 1 -- January 13, 2020

The other day I mentioned that I did not know what the current Amazon Prime was costing me.

I got my reminder today:
This is a reminder that your Prime membership will be renewing soon. On January 17, 2020, your account will be charged $12.99 (plus any applicable taxes) for another month of Prime.

They could have added free two-hour grocery shipping.


No link. Google key words. 
A political hobnobber who featured prominently as a key witness in former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation faces at least a decade in prison after pleading guilty to charges of child sex trafficking and possessing child pornography.

Lebanese-American businessman George Nader, 60, entered a plea deal Monday in federal court in Alexandria, Va., admitting to transporting a 14-year-old boy from the Czech Republic to Washington, D.C., in 2000 to engage in sexual activity with him. He also admitted to possessing child pornography depicting infants or toddlers.

Nader is still separately under indictment in Washington along with seven others on charges of conspiring to conceal the source of more than $3.5 million in political donations to Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Nader allegedly was reporting to an unnamed Middle Eastern government on that operation, which was intended to curry favor with Clinton.
It's been my impression that charges -- worked out with a plea deal -- are only the tip of the iceberg. 


  1. Gee I don't understand why the national media is not talking about this???

    1. So much could be written about this but I don't want to get too far afield on the blog.
