This story along with the basketball players who stole items in China and were caught red handed,cements my theory that if you want something, have enough money or connections, you can pull off just about anything as long as it makes the President a hero. The basketball players should have gotten automatic ten years in prison for stealing but managed to be exonerated by Trump. But I have no money, I don't know any celebrities so my American son sits in a hellhole detainment center in China for 8 years. So yes, this report and the fact the upper class in the state dept do not contact me...Now it all makes sense, why the Consulate in 2012 told Mark only big money could get him out or he would have to confess which Mark will never do so there he sits, deals are made to get many Americans out..of countries that are our nemisis. But some Americans have nothing, they are stuck elsewhere, some are executed after years of begging for help..all they get is a condolence on twitter. Yes, I see now. Even though the UN WGAD ruled Mark must be released immediately, No person has stood up for him, not the cecc, not Pompeo, not Trump, because we have no money no bigtime celebrities to get Mark home. This story cements the fact that a criminal with a connection can bypass the laws to come here but a US Citizen with no money sits waiting for help that never comes..

“The Azaitar brothers’ friendship with King Mohammed VI has also helped further their respective careers. For example, after hearing that Abu Azaitar was having trouble entering the United States due to his criminal past, the king reportedly grew upset and decided to interfere to help the fighter secure his visa, which he eventually succeeded in doing.”

I share that belief with you very much. If you have the right connections and money, there’s no such thing as illegal or undoable to you anywhere on the planet. And I mean every sick thing you might imagine.

We are a pathetic, cancerous species, and I am hoping that during my life time Mother Nature will kill us all in a mass extinction event. That will be nice

Who happens to be Muslim? The writer of this article first is homophobic second antisemite and islamophobic, you should run for professional help, this fighter is known to be gay, for his religion it’s all but true, he might have a Muslim name but nothing else. If the aim of this article is to embarrass yourself it’s a big win, if it’s to make look trump bad you failed.

"White has known Trump since the 1980s, when the real estate developer first hosted UFC fights at his then-lavish Trump casino in Atlantic City."

The first UFC event was in 1993. The first one at the Taj Mahal was in 2000.
