Michael Avenatti Hit With $4.85 MILLION Worth of Bad News

The implications here are enormous, and could explain Avenatti’s increasingly hostile behavior.

Michael Avenatti

Over the course of the last several months, we have been treated to quite the spectacle within the mainstream media.

I’m speaking, of course, about Michael Avenatti; lawyer for adult film actress Stormy Daniels, and himself an outspoken critic of the President.  Avenatti is also an incredibly talented performer, appearing nightly on the cable news networks in order to further his near-inevitable political aspirations.

Unfortunately for Avenatti, however, things have just not been going his way.  Not only has his work with the aforementioned Daniels not panned out in any truly meaningful way, his connection to the outlandish accusations against Brett Kavanaugh made by his client Julie Swetnick have only served to further sully his career.

Now, in what could be the final straw for the lawyer-turned-celebrity, Avenatti has been smacked with a major settlement.

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for porn actress Stormy Daniels, was hit with a personal judgment of $4.85 million on Monday for his failure to pay a debt to a former colleague at his Newport Beach firm.

The judgment by Judge Dennis J. Landin in state Superior Court in Los Angeles is the latest in a series of setbacks for Avenatti in his longtime dispute with Jason Frank, the former colleague.

Frank has also won a $10-million judgment against the firm Eagan Avenatti, which emerged from federal bankruptcy protection in March after making promises to pay millions of dollars to Frank and other creditors, including the U.S. Internal Revenue Service.

“My client has had an awful lot of money owed to him for a lengthy period of time,” Frank’s attorney Eric George said, “and it has been delayed through one tactic or another. Today finally the right thing happened.”

Avenatti had no immediate response to a request for comment.

The judgment came just as an Orange County trial was opening on the possible eviction of Eagan Avenatti from its offices in Newport Beach.

The firm’s landlord, 520 Newport Center Drive LLC, an arm of the Irvine Co., says Eagan Avenatti missed $213,254 in rent payments over the last four months for its ocean-view suite on the 14th floor of an office building at the Fashion Island mall.

If these accusations are true, that the celebrity lawyer is actually broke, then it could explain the desperate nature of Avenatti and his increasingly erratic behavior.

It would also lend credence to the idea that we could be seeing the attorney on the campaign trail sooner rather than later.

Furious Furloughed Federal Workers Descend on DC Swamp to Demand Action

It’s the ruling class versus the working class on the streets of DC this weekend as protesters take their gripes to Pennsylvania Avenue.

government shutdown

Americans are becoming increasingly disenfranchised with the asinine behavior of our elected officials, and a breaking point seems to be in the offing.

The partial government shutdown that we are currently navigating is undoubtedly sending us in the direction of civil unrest, as nearly a million government workers are being asked to continue toiling away at their jobs despite their net-zero paychecks.

This has led to massive callouts at the TSA, the suspension of routine food inspections by the FDA, and a general sense of anger and lament among We The People.  The Washington fat cats are too proud to compromise, and the working class Americans who are affected by this sinful pride have reached a tipping point.

It’s the ruling class versus the working class on the streets of DC this weekend as protesters take their gripes to Pennsylvania Avenue.

Hundreds of furloughed government workers and contractors descended on the White House on Thursday to plead to be allowed to return to work.

Holding signs such as “Stop the war on workers” and “We want work, not walls,” the protesters assembled in the bitter cold outside of AFL-CIO union headquarters before making their way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The anger was palpable.

“I’d like the shutdown to end. I’d like to go back to my job,” said Matthew Chrichton, a 32-year-old staffer for the Peace Corps, adding that he’d moved to Washington for his job four months ago and “living in DC is expensive.”

“I have rent to pay,” he said. “I have bills I need to pay. I want to go to work, and I can’t because they can’t figure out how to fund the government.”

The action comes after weeks of populists uprisings in France, in which the French people have railed against their own government’s lack of care for the people of that nation.

If the American government shutdown doesn’t end soon, there is little doubt that scenes similar to those we’ve witnessed in Paris could be on the horizon.

Blackface-Wearing Comedian Joins Dems in Dismissing Border Crisis

There is a crisis on the border where women are being raped and children are dying, but don’t worry! Blackface-wearing comedian Jimmy Kimmel says everything is fine.

There are no shortage of disturbing issues with the liberal left’s stance on border security, not the least of which was on full display last night.

Shortly after President Trump delivered an 8-minute address to the nation on the subject of the southern border, the media spin-machine was turned up to 11.  In the immediate aftermath of the Commander in Chief’s speech, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Leader Chuck Schumer took to the podium, looking eerily similar to the famous Grant Wood painting American Gothic.  During their terse, dry, and unconvincing read of their vetted and re-vetted verbiage, the two failed to make any sort of point that resembled a counterattack to the President.

The American people weren’t buying it, with anchors on CNN even visibly disappointed by the lackluster language.

Then came the late night hosts, who again attempted to downplay the severity of what it happening on the border.

“All the major networks covered his speech live, and for good reason,” Jimmy Kimmel began. “It was historic. Rarely does a president of the United States interrupt primetime television to warn us about a completely made-up thing.”

Kimmel then suggested that the speech should be accompanied by the following disclaimer: “The following presidential address is a work of fiction. All personalities, incidents, events, locations and facts were pulled directly from the president’s ass.”

“So with that as a caveat, the president spoke. He did not mention the caravan that was coming to get us three months ago. I don’t know what happened to that, but I guess it disappeared when the election was done,” Kimmel said. “But he does want us to believe there is a crisis at the border beside the one he created. He desperately wants us to be worried about the border.”

Kimmel’s remarks are akin to denial of the horrific conditions that many of the migrants face.

Not only are these human beings subjected to blistering temperatures, dangerous trails, and nefarious ne’er do wells on their journey, but we have already seen at least two instances in which children are dying as a result of their attempts to be marched across the border.

And this doesn’t even take into account the unspeakable and unfathomable things that occur to women and children as they mingle with these hardened smugglers.

If the democrats and the comedians want to downplay the severity of that, they do so at the peril of being labeled “Border Crisis Deniers” – a term purposefully reminiscent of “Holocaust Deniers”.

But, what else do you expect from a man who habitually wore blackface for chuckles?
