is confirmed by public records reviewed by the Guardian. Hannity is linked 2a group of shell co(s) that spent at least $90m on >870 homes in 7states. Hannity’s atty didnt dispute Hannity owns them all. Dozens of the properties were bought cheap in 2013 after banks foreclosed on their prev owners & some w/support from HUD. Now let’s see how Cohen sings when it becomes clear TH&C’s investments relied on laundered RU mob money. https://goo.gl/BNVZdT

SCOTUS today ruled that a law subjecting immigrants to deportation 4some “crimes of violence” is unconstitutionally vague. Neil Gorsuch, T’s pick for SCOTUS, joined with the court’s more lib justices, providing the swing vote that invalidated the federal statute. https://goo.gl/riT1Eb

Comey is essentially the Repub that dared 2say: The emperor has no clothes! In his book, Comey links T’s impulses 2that of Family enforcers: “The silent circle of assent. The boss in complete control. The loyalty oaths. The us-vs-them

The lying about all things, lrg & small in service 2some code of loyalty that puts the organization above morality & above the truth.” There’s a distinction between a friend of yours & a friend of ours, a Family ‘amica nostra’. T demands all that surround him be Family, else he fires them via Tweet & he berates them evermore. And T expects the American ppl 2believe his lies.

4 Shade – my knee-jerk reaction is very deep skepticism about all military strikes like the latest one. I don’t trust the CIA or the UK’s intelligence either. I hope Trump is at least somewhat reluctant to go to war.
Bill Maher calls Trump’s Syria strikes ‘Operation Desert Stormy’, claims it’s a distraction. There does seem to have been a rush to judgement. Also, though chem weapons are indiscriminate & horrid, other forms of warfare are often little better. Where is the outrage about these other atrocities?
In an ABC interview w/Stephanopoulos airing as a “20/20” special Sunday, Comey states the obvious & compares Trump to a mob boss. Comey’s book “A Higher Loyalty” is out next Tues. https://goo.gl/5vcP6r

Thanks Shade – I fear though the phone is shot. Sprint said they could not repair it. It’s possible I could get a 3rd party to try but I can replace the phone for $145 with the identical model refurbished. Repairing it, even if possible, would cost more.
The trick to the phone drying service is the vacuum applied to the container holding the phone. Apply a deep enough vacuum & water will boil off at room temp – and I’ll bet they apply moderate heat too to help things along. This principle is used to remove moisture from the internal plumbing of refrigeration systems, as moisture will cause internal corrosion & will also freeze & cause refrigerant blockages.
Wet phone? Getting it dried quickly is the secret to preventing permanent damage. It is recommended you leave the phone off until it is dried – battery removed (if poss). See link below re a $20 drying service offered at
