    Copper- behave toward others to elicit treatment you would like (the manipulative rule)

    Are any of these fuckers capable of not committing any crimes for five fucking minutes?

    Even when under investigation, or having actively signed an immunity agreement which is void if they continue to Do Crime?

    It seems not.

    Also, yeah, try and blackmail the richest man on the planet who also owns a media outlet with material that is, ultimately, not particularly embarrassing. And put it writing.

    Good move, you stupid bastards. You stupid bastards.
    Sing in grief, a requiem, the curse of our millennium, these souls keep whispering from the river beds
    An end to all these violent means, alive in these red water dreams, their haunted burdens stirring in my head on streets still running red
    Most went in the flood, a few were martyred by the flames, yet those who unleashed the waters are still guilty all the same
    When the ignorance of puppets serves the masters larger game, they let it rain, they let it rain
    When I get the chance to rise I'll find the light in their cold eyes or lose myself and carry out revenge
    The righteous hunt has just begun, the dimming of the bleeding sun will let these waters run clear once again

    richest man alive.
    recently single.

    and they thought offering to publicize his dick pic was going to keep him under thumb?

    Isn't it fairly obvious the exchanges between him and his girlfriend were made before he and his wife announced they would divorce?
    Greece shows us that there is a kind of politician worse than the ones that break their election promises; the ones that keep their election promises.

    I agree. Bezos isn't divorced yet. The leverage assumed wasn't just that Bezos didn't want intimate pics published, but that he stood to lose an unacceptably larger amount of wealth in the divorce if the, ah, hard evidence of his cheating went public, and so he would do as they demanded to avoid that. That assumption was wrong and I applaud his response.

    This is bizarre. AMI might be a money-grubbing enterprise that routinely abuses the 1st Amendment to publish tabloid trash (or use catch-and-kill extortion to bury stories)....but they can't be this stupid. Something else is going on. Whatever it is, I hope it backfires and they go bust.

    Good for Bezos.

    What he did was probably the best way to keep the pictures from going public. If the Enquirer releases them now, with all eyes on them, it would be pouring gas on the fire. And I saw in the NYT that Bezos' claims are under investigation now for invalidating the agreement with prosecutors over the Trump cover up payoff.

    Yes, that was mentioned in the Twitter thread. What a wonderful bunch of self-owners.
