Who Makes Money When a Bunch of Conspiracy Theorists Throw a Party at Trump’s Hotel?

MIAMI (ProRepubica) — This month, about a thousand supporters of President Donald Trump gathered at his resort in Florida to discuss a variety of unsupported theories. There were panels on the “Russia Hoax” and “Voter Fraud in the USA.” One speaker endorsed the theory that former President Barack Obama had planned to “turn over” North Africa to al-Qaida.

The American Priority Conference and Festival at the Trump National Doral Miami drew national attention for a video shown that depicted a fake Trump shooting and stabbing members of the media.

And as ProPublica and WNYC detailed, speakers also told conference-goers to prepare for “war” and invoked other violent imagery. (The conference organizers said they oppose all political violence.)

Alice Wilder of “Trump, Inc.” was there during it all. (Listen to the episode.) And we explored who profited from the three-day event.

Here is what we know about who got paid.

1. Trump: The President Won’t Say How Much He Made

Neither conference organizers nor the Trump Organization would say how much the festival paid to rent the Donald J. Trump Grand Ballroom and adjacent event rooms over the three days.

Disclosures by the Republican National Committee and Republican Governors Association show they each spent about $400,000 for multi-day events at the resort.

Also, many of the thousand attendees stayed at the Trump Doral. Neither the conference organizers nor the Trump Organization would say how many. Those who did stay there paid $199 per night.

2. Donald Trump Jr.: He Won’t Say if He Got Paid, but He Made $50,000 for Speaking the Night Before

Donald J. Trump Jr. was the conference’s headline speaker. During his speech[…]

The 12,400-square-foot building has sat vacant since Norris’ closure after serving Pacific Palisades for nearly 40 years.

“Nineteen months they’re without a [hardware] store, I know how hard that is,” Robles said about what inspired Anawalt to sign onto a Palisades store, adding that he is looking forward to serving the community.

Since Norris closed, rumors have swirled about what will occupy the space—with everything from a Pilates studio to an Apple store suggested.Anawalt, a family-owned and operated company […]

The Most Expensive Home in LA Cost Jeff Bezos Only 0.13% of Net Worth

Published

LOS ANGELES (Los Angeles Times) — Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos walks onstage for the launch of the Fire Phone in Seattle. It can be hard to grasp the wealth of Jeff Bezos, the planet’s richest man.

Thankfully his decision to spend $165 million on a Beverly Hills mansion last week — a California record — offers some clarity.

For starters, there’s this easy calculation. Amazon’s stock, the source of Bezos’ fortune, bounces around daily, but as of the close of markets last week, Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index calculated his net worth at $130 billion despite a $833 million stock market hit Friday.

That means the nine figure sum he’s shelling out for the former estate of movie mogul Jack Warner amounts to only 0.13% of his net worth, rounded up ever so slightly. Not too many Angelenos could […]
