8. She Has Ships (Hopefully)

Armies are only as good their ability to mobilize. Luckily, Daenerys has a fleet to match her army thanks to the Greyjoys and the remaining boats from Slavers Bay. Or at least she did, until Ramsay Bolton 2.0 aka Euron Greyjoy sunk her battleships. Best guesses had their numbers in the range of 500, but given recent events, who knows now. Though that doesn’t mean Khaleesi’s navy is completely adrift.

For starters, she still had enough of a navy to take on Casterly Rock, so maybe there are still more in the reserves. Secondly, the 100 warships the Ironborn brought to the table were pretty cool, but you know what is even better than 100 ships? 200 ships. That’s the estimated total currently commanded by House Redwyne. These Lords of the Arbor have yet to play a major role in the series, but those familiar with George R.R. Martin’s books know the grape flagged merchants own the largest armada in the world. And although Queen Olenna may have been the head of House Tyrell by marriage, she was born as a Redwyne. Should her family come into the fray to avenge her, Daenerys’ battalion may resurface stronger than ever.

7. She is Open Minded

The mark of a good king or queen is their willingness to listen to others. Which is exactly why Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen have lasted so long, while the Rob Starks and Viserys of the world are long gone. As the headless body of Mossador proves, this doesn’t mean Dany is easily persuaded, it simply means that she is open minded and not above learning a thing or two from the places she burns and people she crucifies. Also, that she would rather break the wheel, than merely become a prong within it. Traits usually lacking in most leaders.

Take Cersei, for example. When you refuse to believe anything outside your immediate circle – which primarily consists of a giant mute zombie and a creepy alchemist – the odds of being successful are not in your favor. Daenerys, on the other hand, would surprise no one if she ultimately decided to put aside disbelief and take up arms against the White Walkers. That’s because she sees the big picture. Not to mention that once you’ve hatched dragons with your bare hands, you’ll believe anything is possible. Narrow mindedness gets your pregnant wife stabbed during a wedding. Open mindedness gets you a long lasting seat on the Iron Throne, and some pretty sweet dragons.

Harvey Weinstein to TWC Board, ‘I’m Sorry, I Have a Real Problem’

Harvey Weinstein to TWC Board, ‘I’m Sorry, I Have a Real Problem’

 

 

Harvey Weinstein was apologetic and contrite during the Board of Directors meeting Tuesday when he resigned under pressure from the Board … sources connected to the meeting tell TMZ.

We’re told there was no screaming, no yelling, no anger. Harvey Weinstein told the Board, “I have a real problem,” and then apologized for the “trouble and confusion” he caused TWC.

We’re told Weinstein, who was on speaker phone from Arizona, told the Board he needed to build a new life and move on.

Our sources say everyone sounded conciliatory … partly because the handwriting was on the wall.  The Board made it clear Weinstein had a legal obligation to resign from the Board after it ratified his firing from TWC. He did just that.

Harvey, we’re told, was “peaceful” during the meeting and Bob was subdued.

We’re told the sense of the Board is that Harvey Weinstein will not force his firing to arbitration or court.

Our sources say both Harvey and Bob Weinstein have an overriding interest in making sure Colony Capital succeeds in restructuring the company — money. The each have roughly 21% equity interest in TWC, and if the company fails, they walk away with nothing.

As one source put it, “Harvey and Bob have a huge stake in making sure Colony Capital can put Humpty Dumpty back together again.”

Trump’s Net Worth Plummets By $600 Million

 

As much as Donald Trump loves to brag about how rich he is, turns out he’s a lot less wealthy than he was a year ago.

Forbes magazine has just released their annual ranking of the 400 richest Americans has some very bad news for the Donald: His net worth has fallen drastically by $600 million, meaning he’s only worth an estimated $3.1 billion. That drops him 92 spots on the Top 400 list, from #146 to #248.

Ouch!

What led to the sudden drop in Trump’s worth? Forbes notes:

“A tough New York real estate market, particularly for retail locations; a costly lawsuit and an expensive presidential campaign.”

Ironically, America’s richest people are richer than they were in 2016, but not Trump.

For the 24th year in a row, Bill Gates tops the list, with an estimated net worth of $89 billion. Here’s the rest of the top 10:

  • Jeff Bezos, Amazon, $67 billion
  • Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway, $65.5 billion
  • Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook, $55.5 billion
  • Larry Ellison, Oracle, $49.3 billion
  • Michael Bloomberg, Bloomberg LP, $45 billion
  • Charles Koch, Koch Industries, $42 billion
  • David Koch, Koch Industries, $42 billion
  • Larry Page, Google, $48.5 billion
  • Sergey Brin, Google, $37.5 billion

And Trump fared even worse on the Bloomberg’s worldwide billionaires list, which rates his worth at $2.86 billion. That doesn’t even qualify him to be named as one of the 500 richest people in the world.

Trump Just Spread This Horrible Lie About the Last Few Presidents

 

ust a day after Donald Trump’s controversial blatantly false remarks that former President Barack Obama and the other presidents didn’t call the families of soldiers killed in action ignited the internet, the president is at it again. At a radio event at the White House, Trump doubled-down on his comments, telling Fox News Radio host Brian Killmeade, “I mean, you could ask General [John] Kelly did he get a call from Obama. You could ask other people. I don’t know what Obama’s policy was.”

By General John Kelly, Trump was referring to his beleaguered chief of staff, who tragically lost his son in 2010. First Lieutenant Robert Michael Kelly was leading a unit when he stepped on a concealed explosive device.

Kelly – *understandably* – didn’t comment on Trump’s allegations, and while former White House aides can’t remember Obama calling him, they do remember that the former president did something even better than call…
