Steve Bannon Sentenced to Four Months Jailtime, $6,500 Fine

Ex-Trump adviser Steve Bannon has been whacked with a four-month jail sentence and ordered to pay a $6,500 fine for refusing to testify before Congress about the January 6th riots at the US Capitol Building. The judge did, however, rule that the sentence may not be imposed if Bannon appeals before 15th November. Bannon’s team have already suggested that’s exactly what they’ll do…

Financiers Launch Funds to Track Politicians’ Trades

Investors could soon have the chance to capitalise on the inside knowledge of US politicians, as two ETFs are set to launch. The two funds, dubbed NANC and KRUZ in honour of Nancy Pelosi and Ted Cruz, track the trades of Democrat and Republican politicians respectively. The investment opportunity is only made possible by the failure of US lawmakers to pass bipartisan reforms to ban congressional trading. No conflict of interest there…

The move comes amidst scrutiny of congressional trading, with over $290 million being spent in 2021, and could prove lucrative considering congressional trades outperformed the market last year. Co-conspirators curious of capital movements on Capitol Hill can also track congressional trades at Capitoltrades. This article does not constitute financial advice…

Republican Congresswoman’s Soup-er Democratic Take-Down

If you think Boris has had a tough time in the Commons recently, cast an eye over to the US House of Representatives where Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene tried to launch a wonton attack on Nancy Pelosi:

“Not only do we have the D.C jail, which is the D.C gulag, but now we have Nancy Pelosi’s gazpacho police, spying on members of congress…”

The problem with the Gazpacho Police: despite being consommé professionals, most crimes become cold cases…

White House Press Corp Still Whining About Boris Calling Impromptu Oval Office Press Conference

If there is one group of hacks more precious than our own illustrious Lobby hacks, it is the White House press corps. They are having a bit of a meltdown after Boris initiated an impromptu press conference in the Oval Office, calling for questions from British hacks. Biden being less keen on answering unscripted questions was not happy at taking their questions and did not call US hacks. In fact White House staffers drowned out their shouted questions when they tried and the press were marched out of the Oval OfficeWhite House press secretary Jen Psaki made it clear that Boris did it off his own bat with no regard for protocol or Sleepy Joe’s limitations…

AOC Wears “Tax The Rich” Dress to $35,000-per-Ticket Met Gala

Democrat Congresswoman and professional attention seeker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez un-ironically wore a custom-made ‘tax the rich’ dress at the $35,000-per-ticket and $200,000-per-table Met Gala ball. Isn’t that rich….

AOC attended the ball with designer Aurora James, who specialises in “luxury accessories”, and whose typical clientele includes Beyonce, Meghan Markle, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry. With Aurora’s shoes typically costing upwards of $1,000, co-conspirators can assume that AOC was sporting a high five-figure look. In an interview the self-described socialist explained that the dress explores:

“… what it means to be working-class women of colour at the Met. We can’t just play along, but we need to break the fourth wall and challenge some of the institutions.” 

Still, the videos of AOC at the Met Ball garnered millions of views on social media for America’s doyenne politico-influencer…
