Automattic 重整 Tumblr 團隊的內部消息

#Trump attorney Chris #Kise argued to NY Supreme Court Justice Arthur #Engoron, that regardless of what was in Trump's #financial statements, they did not make a material difference to bankers who approved #loans to Trump.
Kise says there was no testimony presented at trial by anyone at Trump #lender #DeutscheBank or other lenders that said they would have proceeded differently had they known Trump's accurate financial condition.
Heh. Reading about #intuit's #Mint #financial tracking software closing up. I'm not sure if its #enshitification if the provider is shuttering it because it was a money loser, but it still stings the same.
Anyways - there are lots of $money tracking apps and softwares, including lots of good ones for linux. But, I'm still rocking the 2010 Sunset edition of #MicrosoftMoney. Yeah it doesn't have a mobile app, the online integrations are broken, but it still *works*. Reliably.
Unlike her father & her brothers #EricTrump & #DonaldTrumpJr, #Ivanka is no longer a defendant in #NYAG #LetitiaJames’ lawsuit. James alleges that #Trump’s asset values were fraudulently pumped up for years on #financial statements that helped him get #loans & #insurance.
Trump's signature is on the document.
NYAG: “Were you aware that this [$2.5B] covenant would be tested & certified every year based upon your statements of financial condition?”
Trump: "Yes which I could've done w/o (SFCs).
| could have just shown them a couple of assets which were worth more than $2.5B"
Trump: “Me personally? It’s so long ago, this is well beyond the statute of limitations…. But [it’s] probably not because I’m sure the judge will rule against me, because he always rules against me.”
Trump insisted that his properties were “underestimated”
NYAG asked which assets Trump thought were undervalued in his SFCs.
Trump: ““Mar-a-Lago, 40 Wall Street, Doral…
Trump violated the order 2X (so far). Last Fri, the judge was forced to extend the gag order to Trump’s attys when they took over the abuse after trump’s had to stop.

The Philippines is set to launch short-selling on one of Asia's oldest exchanges, but some are casting a wary eye over the effort to boost trading volumes and enhance the country's weak corporate governance.
#NYAG: "There is a process to follow.. it's making a motion. We're wasting valuable time."
Justice #Engoron says the allegation that he received any complaint is categorically false. (Referring to the tabloid breitbart article)
And finally the #TrumpTrial got underway.
#Trump wants it, & his dancing monkeys are happy to oblige.
Trump & his attys haven’t been suddenly forced into an exigent situation.
"in #financial #disclosures dating back to 2016, the year he joined Congress, #MikeJohnson never reported having a savings or checking account in his name, his spouse’s name, or in the name of any of his children. In his latest filing, which covers last year, he doesn’t list a single asset either. Which, given that he made more than $200,000 last year—in addition to his wife’s salary—is more than a little odd."
Yep. Sus AF.
Eric testified that he read the email.
Another email, Feb. 23, 2017, #JeffMcConney asks Eric for input on footnotes to Trump's SFCs:
"We're working on your Dad's financial statement," McConney wrote, "footnotes related to the three European clubs."
#TrumpTrial Nov 2, 2023, PM
Email from #McConney to Eric, Aug 23, 2013 ends:
"With all of the renovations that were done since the last statement in June 2015 I wanted to ask you if there is anything you wanted to add to or expand in the footnotes?"
Eric testified "f/s" means #financial statements
"A" financial statement, he clarified. Not "The." He also said he doesn't remember what the NDA was for.
Eric: “The chance of me reading a confidentiality agreement that I did not execute I think is zero.”
The last witness before Trump Jr is #MichielMcCarty, state's expert.
1st he testified to his qualifications as an expert. Then his testimony switched to his report.
The 1st category of his report is “lost interest.”

#McConney, who's also a #defendant in the #Trump #fraud case, was then shown letters he sent to a lender to disclose the statements of #financial condition to Royal Bank America. That letter & others like it are part of how the AG will attempt to establish McConney’s #liability for #false financial statements, in addition to his involvement in preparing the statements themselves.
The trial adjourned for lunch.
McConney is scheduled to resume testifying at 2:15 PM ET.
#McConney testified that he & then-CFO #AllenWeisselberg reviewed the final version of the #financial compilations & that once #Weisselberg signed off, he would notify their #accounting company, #Mazars.
But he acknowledged that, through his own handwritten notation, he amended Mazars’ issuance letters to indicate #TRUMP HIMSELF was entitled to a FINAL REVIEW of the compilation of statements of financial condition.
#McConney testified that he retired earlier this yr & was given a severance of $500k, $125k of which he’s still owed but isn’t contingent on anything other than his “being alive.”
"Not that I recall," he said of both.
He also directed the #Trump team to turn over a full list of those #companies, & to inform the monitor already overseeing the #TrumpOrganization's #financial #transactions about any 3rd parties who have ownership interests.
The order also directs Trump's team to inform the monitor in advance of any applications for new #business certificates & any transfer of assets.
Last week, #Engoron denied Trump's motion to have the claims against him thrown out on statute of limitations, & Engoron issued partial #SummaryJudgment on some of the AG's allegations, including that #Trump & the #TrumpOrganization had made "persistent" false claims overstating the #value of their #assets in their #financial statements.
#Bender’s failure to complain about the #statements of #financial condition & #valuation methods doesn’t mean those valuations & statements they were presented were reasonable. It just shows that Bender@& #Mazars were sloppy, if not financially beholden to the #TrumpOrg.
Yes Mazars had access to data that banks & lenders didn’t, but the employees & execs of #Trump Org weren’t entirely honest w/them.
Bender & Mazars may have been equal parts victims of & accomplices to Trump’s alleged fraud.
& #Bender admitted guidelines set forth by the American Institute of CPAs require accountants engaged in compilation of #financial statements to be familiar w/the bases for valuing the estimated current value of an #asset —& if there is a disagreement, to either insist on a modification of the disclosure or withdraw.
Bender admitted that other than a disagreement on Niketown’s value, which, after consulting w/ #TrumpOrg, it modified, he didn’t recall bringing anything else to their attn.
He said he understood how the asset values were reached for a “significant portion” of props, bc the notes to those statements of #financial condition addressed some of the #valuation methods, but didn’t recall which he did or didn’t see or understand.
#Bender, who said he made $1 million to $2 million a year, said in response to questioning that he was the one responsible for making sure everything was SUBMITTED correctly. But he countered that the company should have provided him w/proper #financial data, incl’g appraisals.
Earlier today, under questioning by the AG's office, Bender said that he'd compiled the financial statements based solely on info he received from #Trump & his company.
Fmr #Trump #accountant #DonaldBender testified that at one point he discovered that Trump & his company were #withholding certain docs that should have been given to him as he compiled Trump's #FinancialStatements.
Trump &… #AllenWeisselberg, sent #Bender letters asserting they'd "made available to you all available records & financial data" & had "not knowingly withheld from you any #financial #records or related #data that in our judgment would be relevant to your compilation."
The AG's office is trying to show a #pattern of behavior through documents bolstering #Bender's claim, indicating he & the accounting company he worked for relied on docs that Trump & his company provided them.
Longtime #TrumpOrganization #accountant #DonaldBender was the first #witness in the #NewYork AG’s $250 million #fraud #trial. He was responsible for preparing the allegedly #fraudulent statements of #financial condition that were used to present what the #lawsuit says are #inflated accounts of #Trump’s #NetWorth to obtain favorable #loan & #insurance policy rates.
#Bender’s #testimony will take us in-depth into the #financial statements year over year. He will likely take up much of the rest of the afternoon. #Trump has settled in at the defense table to await his fmr accountant’s testimony.
“Eric Trump & Donald Trump Jr. are not walking away from the statements of #financial condition,” Robert said. But, he argued, evidence will show there was nothing materially wrong w/the statements.
“President Trump did not make any false statements,” Kise read from a slide. He said that the AG’s estimates are speculative, which matters as they would determine the size of any #penalty #Trump would pay.
He concluded his opening argument & said bluntly that he disagrees w/ 1 of the judge’s rulings, & plans to #appeal it.
Wallace explained how the #financial statements were used. He tells a story of #Trump meeting w/a potential #lender, & the company sending an email afterward w/the statement attached & a note: “Hope you will be impressed.”
Wallace has moved on to why the #defendants concocted this #conspiracy. He argues that beyond just a place on the #ForbesBillionaireList, the defendants knew a high net worth was necessary to maintain #financial benefits, such as securing a #loan at a lower rate.
During the last 10,000 years, our climate has been very stable - which allowed humans to settle down, invest, invent, create complex social systems, and infrastructures ....

Hello all, i've been pressured into posting this again.
the past almost year has been an extreme struggle (hard to put food on the table, living paycheck to paycheck, rent almost wipes all our money, stupid medical situations from an accident, debt, and extremely dry job market in the area.
The need is there to fix all of these problems and likely 'escape' the USA, to somewhere better. Help is not encouraged, however i wont stop you from doing so, and I thank you profusely if you do.
If you are unable to do so in any capacity, id like you to focus on yourself as much as possible as your survival means more to me than mine does to me.

I've also written about this recently! If we don't create a culture of intentional #financial structures, #mastodon is doomed to fall to #corporate interests (and this was even before the Meta closed-door meetings).
We can't be shy to discuss money if this is something important to us. Whether it is #donation based (Wikipedia does it), or institutions (email succeeded in part through adoption and #hosting services of universities), or establishing a foundation to offer grants in support of the platform, we should be thinking and planning now.
The alternative is ad support (or tracking!), subscription or tiered service, exclusion of minority voices, and/or the eventual death of the platform.
But the "anti-woke", anti-ESG moves backfire.
