Cohen Raid Memo Unease #FOTUS

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I can’t sleep for some reason and so I have nothing else to do but think about what might be in the redacted Cohen raid document that court is supposed to release at some point Tuesday during business hours.

Probably nothing of note is going to happen, but there are some very gossamer datapoints that at least make feel a tingle of unease.

— I’m getting strange traffic in my Website’s Webstats when it comes to FOTUS. Like, at least one “usual suspect” has been looking at the site again after a long absence. He’s just the type of guy who would “know something” in advance, too. But what? Also, the occasional hits from CA and DC have popped up. These are just the types of sites you might expect someone “in the know” to come from if something REALLY BIG was about to drop connected to FOTUS.

— POTUS has been going batshit insane the last few days. Everyone’s been thinking it had to do with the Mueller Report maybe coming out, but what if it was — and I’m really pulling it out of my ass at this point — something FOTUS related?

Now, from my point of view it wouldn’t be so much that magically the Cohen raid document would somehow “prove” that FOTUS is real — ’cause it ain’t.

But there’s a real chance that even in redacted form, the document might allude to the suspicion on the part of the FBI that FOTUS did, in fact, happen and as such that would draw attention to the theory and by extension what I’ve written about this now very very very debunked idea.

And, it’s not like I’m going to endup on Maddow talking about this. If would be the dude from New York Magazine who first proposed FOTUS (though he to date has not called it this) who would be interviewed.

Should this scenario play out, however, there’s a little a minor chance that for a few hours tomorrow (Tuesday) my Twitter mentions might blow up as I have to explain over and over again why FOTUS is bullshit.

I keep saying it’s bullshit because, well, it is.

It’s been prove in court to be bullshit, Broidy’s property was raided and if FOTUS was real, wouldn’t it have somehow leaked out in conjunction with the Cohen imbriglio in the first place?

FOTUS just didn’t happen, but it’s possible that the Cohen raid memo might allude to FOTUS in some way and that, in itself, would be the thing that got people talking for a few days and be politically damaging to the president. Add to this The Mueller Report coming out soon (maybe?) AND No Deal Brexit on the horizon and….well…whoah boy.

I find the whole situation with Shera Bechard’s abortion tragic, regardless of who the father was and I wish it would get more attention. We need a proper airing out of her state of mind at the time that occured. The hypocrisy on that front is a little too much for me.

That #FOTUS Was Completely Debunked Will Be Looked Back Upon As One Of The Biggest Shocks Of The Trump Era

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

If today’s Elliot Broidy news says anything, it’s that it’s now rather comical in hindsight that anyone thought Broidy wasn’t Shera Bechard’s babydaddy. I have say — again — how sorry I am about my involvement in all that, but at the time it definitely seemed to make sense.

It all hinges on the cold hard fact that Shera Bechard really was just casually referred Keith Davidson to be her lawyer. The rest, as they say, took care of itself. Once Davidson got involved, then the fact that Broidy would picked sketchy Michael Cohen to be his lawyer in the Bechard imbriglio (what would have been FOTUS if Trump was the babydaddy) took care of itself.

So, as such, today’s news that Broidy was raided absolutely, 100% puts the whole thing to bed. If there had been ANYTHING to the story, we would have learned with HIS place was raided, not now months later. While I’m sure there’s plenty of dirty business going on at the nexus of Trump – Broidy — Cohen, Trump being Shera Bechard’s babydaddy ain’t it.

The things that I — and a few others — thought suggested Trump was the father was bullshit. Broidy and Bechard really were that good at covering up their entire relationship and Bechard really did have zero, ZERO connection to Trump other than they partied in the same circles in the most tenuous of ways.

But I do think that looking back on all of this, we’ll see the FOTUS non-event as one of the strangest twists in the Trump experience. We came to know enough about Trump that we realized it was pretty logical to assume what we know now to be absolutely false — that Trump knocked up Bechard and then dangled access in front of Broidy so he’d take the fall. We were looking at it from the wrong direction because the Keith Davidson angle didn’t seem to make any sense. The issue of the “high” number of $1.6 million for an abortion also was completely misinterpreted by people who were looking into it. Or, at least me.

And, yet, it did.

Must note one thing, though — the Russians are interested in this story. I have no idea why, but they are. Occasionally someone from deep within Russia, usually Moscow, will poke around my FOTUS information. Also, I fear this particular story is never going to die relative to my Webstats. It comes in waves as people hear bits and pieces of this now bullshit story and look at what I wrote, trying to figure it out for themselves. So, as such, I’ll probably write about it a little bit more now and then as weird things pop up in my Webstats. I think some of the Webstat uptick in interest into FOTUS that I saw last year probably happened about the time Broidy’s place was raided. I have absolutely no proof of this, but it would be enough to make me snort if somehow when they raided his place the people who did it became aware of what I’d written.

Or, if you really wanted to be paranoid, you could say Broidy was thinking about suing me for some reason when they raided his place. Oh boy. I’m flat broke and I honestly don’t what the point of doing so would be. Make my life hell to make himself feel better? I don’t know. All I can say is, again, how very sorry I am about my excitement over this case of mistaken babydaddy.

I’m really sorry that I wasted everyone’s time. Don’t know what more I can say about it. You gain your wisdom and move on.

What is going on here? And why now? Click on the image to see it bigger.

So, someone from New York City looked at a very interesting post I did some time ago when I thought Donald Trump was Shera Bechard’s babydaddy. He isn’t of course, and that’s been stated in court.

So why did someone from New York City look at that post in the middle of the night? My only guess is that — at best — there’s a chance as Cohen’s fixer crimes begin to leak out that we might hear a tape or two between Cohen and Bechard’s lawyer at the time of the NDA / abortion, Keith Davidson.

That’s it. That’s all I got.

Otherwise, it’s a mystery.

#FOTUS — Something’s Up, But What?

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

Let’s go through the datapoints we have at this moment.

1. Friday, Dec. 7th, 2018, Mueller is apparently set to drop some sort of sentencing document in regards to what Michael Cohen has told his investigation.
2. Donald Trump is flop sweating on Twitter tonight.
3. The last 24 hours, I’ve seen a minor — but noticeable — uptick in Web searches about my what I called the FOTUS Theory. Just out of the blue, I noticed people were suddenly interested in what I had written regarding that now-debunked theory. The theory was, of course, that Elliot Broidy was the fall guy for Donald Trump having an affair with Shera Bechard that produced a fetus that was later aborted under duress. (This was proven in a court of law not to be the case. It was Broidy. Broidy was the babydaddy.)
4. The FOTUS Theory has been completely, totally debunked and it was all a misunderstanding caused by Shera Bechard picking Keith Davidson to represent her in the NDA negotiations with Elliot Broidy that Michael Cohen was heading up. (Davidson and Cohen were best buddies, hence we all thought it was actually the reverse — that Trump and Cohen had picked Davidson because they could trust him. Turns out, not so! )

Here’s the FOTUS Theory in graphic form.

Having said all that, it begs the question — why are people suddenly searching for information about a debunked theory? Probably it’s nothing. Probably just enough people realized that the Cohen sentencing document is set to drop on Friday and they just were curious about the Elliot Broidy angle. Or, if nothing else, it was just a deep echo of interest out of the blue.

That’s probably what it is.

Here’s a video I made before I knew about the sentencing memo set to drop tomorrow.

But you could make the case — and here I am venturing off into Alex Jones territory — that Something Is Up. My best guess is all that will happen is Cohen will get in trouble for conspiring against Shera Bechard with Keith Davidson. Trump, AGAIN, will be proven not to be to be connected in any way shape or form with her. That’s my best guess. You really would have to have lost your mind to come anywhere near thinking maybe, just maybe the final Truth will come out and…we’ll learn FOTUS really did happen.

I just don’t see that happening. Bechard made a sworn deposition regarding her involvement with Broidy, so it just isn’t within the realm of possibility that we might have the ultimate bombshell — that Trump got a woman pregnant and forced her into having an abortion in exchange for $1.6 million.

That’s just not going to happen. Full stop.

I will note in passing that we still have no proof that Broidy and Bechard actually know each other beyond the negotiations for the NDA and their statements in court. No pictures, no nothing.

But that’s crazytalk. It’s embarrassing even to bring up.

So, my best guess is Keith Davidson is in trouble for his extremely unethical relationship with Michael Cohen. That’s the best The Resistance can hope for at this point.

#FOTUS: The Curious Case Of Cohen, Mueller & An Uptick In Searches

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

Elliot Broidy got Shera Bechard pregnant, pressured her into have an abortion, gave her $1.6 million to keep her mouth shut and, well, that it. That’s what happened.

Having said that, apparently some sort of document associated with Michael Cohen’s cooperation with Bob Mueller is set to drop tomorrow and, well, something curious is happening in my Web stats. It’s nothing big, but there is a minor uptick in searches for associated with what I called the FOTUS Affair (Fetus of the United States). This uptick happened in just the last day or so and I had no idea that anything to do with Cohen was set to drop on Friday. I knew Manafort was supposed to drop, but not Cohen.

Below is the conceit of the FOTUS Theory, which proved to simply be a big misunderstanding caused by Bechard’s initial selection of Michael Cohen’s best buddy Keith Davidson to represent her in her NDA negotiations with Elliot Broidy.

So, it’s curious. All I can say is maybe someone, somewhere is hearing chatter about Broidy — Cohen — Davidson screwing over Shera Bechard and that might be something mentioned in the document Mueller is set to release tomorrow. I don’t think it’s going to be any truly jaw-dropping news like Trump REALLY WAS the baby daddy. I just don’t see that happening, given everything we’ve heard about in a court of law on the subject. It just doesn’t make any sense that that would be what people are hearing chatter about and hence causing them to search for what I wrote about.

But it is possible we might hear something about what, exactly, Broidy — Cohen — Davidson did to screw over Bechard (simply because it was illegal and that’s it) and as such that particular shitshow will come to the forefront for maybe one news cycle. Probably won’t even make it through the weekend.

The whole thing is just…curious. Unusual. In just enough way to make you cock an eye. Why would people suddenly be searching for what I wrote? Who knows what and why? What, exactly, is going to be dropped tomorrow? It’s all very intriguing.

Below is a video I did earlier in the day before I made the connection between the Cohen filing and any potential Shera Bechard news.

Rudy: There Are 183 Cohen Tapes Dealing With Years 2016-2018

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

The issue for me is we may be in for a bumpy August if there is anything juicy in the 183 Cohen Tapes Rudy Giuliani alleges exist. I am of the opinion that it’s a big nothingburger unless Trump forced someone, anyone to have an abortion at some point in the last two years. It doesn’t have to be Shera Bechard, it just has to be someone.

The point of all of this is the president is a raw dogging hound dog. It’s obvious the base has long ago factored in his rakish behavior and the only thing that might leave a political welt is if you could PROVE he not only paid a woman to have an abortion, but that she felt PRESSURED to do so. If you could prove that, you got yourself an earth shattering story. One for the ages.

But our only option at this point for that, Shera Bechard, simply isn’t viable anymore. Elliot Broidy got her pregnant, end of story. So the more stories of women Trump’s had affairs with over the years come out, the more the base look up to him as some sort of stud.

Then there’s this:

Pondering What’s In Those ‘Hundreds’ Of Cohen Tapes

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

It pretty obvious at this point, at least to me, that while we may be in for something of a bumpy few weeks, it’s likely that nothing too astonishing is going to come out from any attention Cohen Tapes. I say this because, well, Team Trump would have fought a whole heap of a lot harder to prevent prosecutors from getting them if there was anything all that damaging in them.

One thing I disagree with my “partner in crime” about is what happens if there’s a tape of Michael Cohen conspiring with Keith Davidson against Shera Bechard. He says it’s a big meh because, well, Elliot Broidy was the father and so fuck it. But I disagree for us, personally. I believe *anything* found in those tapes will be rolling thunder in the public consciousness for about 24 hours, no matter what’s in them.

Hence, even though he and I have settled that Trump isn’t the daddy — even though logically he should be — he and I are bound to get a least a little bit of attention for no other reason than I (by in extension HIM) have been involved in at least trying to figure out what the fuck happened. I say this knowing full well that it will be New York Magazine’s Paul Campos who will get the bulk of the attention, no matter who the Shera Bechard babydaddy is.

But, whatever. I have very low expectations. No tape may exist and even if it does, we may never hear it. So if nothing else it’s existence or lack thereof has given me something to write about.

1 Cohen Tape Of Him Talking With Keith Davidson About Shera Bechard & Whoa Buddy

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I have no inside information about anything, but I would like to note in passing that there are allegedly “hundreds” of Michael Cohen tapes. This is the point when I say I have a vested interest in what’s in those tapes because, well, even if there’s absolute proof that Elliot Broidy is Shera Bechard’s babydaddy and not Donald Trump, there will probably be about 24 hours when that whole thing is going to be of huge national interest.

Throw in the possibility the two men might be talking about putting the squeeze on her to pressure her into having an abortion in exchange for $1.6 million and things get really wild, really quick. I say this as a I stress that Donald Trump isn’t the father. I absolutely, 100% believe Elliot Broidy is the father of Shera’s bechard fetus.

I’m just saying that there is a real possibility that people will be interested in what I’ve written about all of this at least to the extent that my website crashes for about 24 hours. I will note that Paul Campos will probably get the vast majority of the attention and I’ll just get a little bit on the side.

But to venture off into crazy town again, if there’s a tape proving that *Trump* is the father then I black out in disbelief. I just don’t see that happening. It’s just not going to happen. Absolutely. It’s never going to happen because Trump isn’t the father.

Anyway, it will be interesting to see when, if ever, we hear the rest of those tapes and what happens to be on them. It could be a long time before we hear the tapes, or not. You just never know.

The Magical Mystery Michael Avenatti ‘Cohen Tape’ Tweet In The Context Of Shera Bechard

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

Ok, if I didn’t absolutely, 100% know Trump had nothing to do with Shera Bechard, I would kind of flip out seeing the below tweet:

But I feel as thought I absolutely know what happened with Bechard and so this is all a bunch of silliness. The idea that Trump might be mortally wounded politically because of the the FOTUS (Campos) Theory is so addictive, so delicious that it’s easy for one to get a sugar rush from it all.

We know the facts. Bechard got pregnant by Elliot Broidy and that’s it. But it will be interesting to see who, if anyone, Avenatti is talking about. Nothing fun-interesting ever happens, so I should just go back to my novel(s) and continue to struggle with how to flesh the concepts out.

Meh. Just meh.

Lulz, nothing matters.

Something Weird Is Going On

by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

I have no idea what is going on. The only thing I can compare it to is I feel like an asteroid has struck the earth on the other side of the planet and the water has suddenly drawn away from the shore. I know this means something, but what, exactly, leaves me at a loss.

Given what little I have to work from, I would speculate someone knows something — something big — might be about to happen and that yours truly might be affected by it. Or let me put it another way — the circumstances I find myself in are identical to what they would be if what I think might be about to happen, were about to happen.

What I am concerned about is that even though Elliot Broidy is obviously Shera Bechard’s babydaddy, that there might be a Cohen Tape that will throw that back into the spotlight in a big way.

Or something.

I honestly have no idea what could possibly be about to happen. Maybe I’m totally blowing this out of proportion. But only time will tell I guess.
