Entry One: Where Matters Stand

I am from time to time known to note on this forum my very firm opinion that Donald J. Trump is a Russian asset.

This is an unusual stance for me; I'm center left, have conservative friends, and the accusation is rather... extreme.

However, I cannot ignore the hiring of Paul Manafort as Campaign Manager.
I was sure I must have misheard. I hadn't.

The expatriate "Public Relations" expert was back.

"But..." I thought, "Not that the monster has a 'side', but he's worked exclusively for the Russian Oligarchy for the the better part of a decade, fixing the Ukrainian elections. What is he doing managing an American campaign?"

Different guy with the same name? Nope...

Then the Republican platform plank on Russian attacks on Ukraine was weakened.
Then Manafort chose Mr. Pence as the running mate. (I don't know if this has any significance, but I keep it in mind.)

Because I had followed events in Ukraine and researched Manafort, in case he ever came home, I was in a position to see the puppet strings earlier.

I know I sound like a bad spy novel. I'm not happy about that. But I don't try to link everything in to my "theory", or draw bold conclusions. I would be more defensive of an actual delusion, one would think.

I just think our weakling President is being extorted.

Entry Two: Brink of the Maelstrom.

Then earlier tonight, I learned that Paul Jeff Bezos' lover's brother was described by Roger Stone as a "friend." And he knew Carter Paige.

I maneuvered my little expedition of discovery around the paywalls and poked about. There was plenty of content, and the involvement of talent agencies is a curve ball.

I have no intention of viewing any of the material stolen from Mr. Bezos, but it was time to take a look at this Lauren Sanchez...

Entry Three: Salvation

Lauren Sanchez, huh? OK, pretty lady... whoa, I know her!

It's one of the dance coaches I dealt Blackjack to when "Dancing with the Stars" came to our casino. We played for hours, and had a wonderful time.

Ms. Sanchez is a delightful conversationist with a dry, sly wit. She tips well, and without ego. She knows history, and might remember me; we briefly discussed Mesopotamia.

The coaches left up a few grand. Did I mention Ms. Sanchez knows Blackjack strategy? And aerial videography.

So, as I was about to plunge into research mode, sniffing for any hint of Roger Stone... The Universe decided to give me a clue.

Sometimes, people just know each other. No need to play "Six Degrees of Roger Stone".

But... the President is still a Russian asset.

Six degrees of separation?
Lauren Sanchez has a Kevin Bacon Number of 2.

But, for your main point ...
Zero degrees of separation.

I don’t know what to say, Bern. Your six degrees nets you a poker table with Lauren Sanchez and a discussion on Mesopotamia. Mine gets me KillerJoe and toxic Trump supporters.

Life isn’t fair.

Don't know what to tell you, Val... this was my closest brush with celebrity in decades of customer service.

Number two was buying Walter Koenig a pina colada.

Conspiracy: confirmed.
