...Mr. Trump succeeded in repeatedly convincing investors, bankers and Wall Street that “his name had real value.”

“They were so in love with him that they came back a second, third and fourth time,” Mr. Hanlon said. “They let him strip out assets. It was awful to watch. It was astonishing. I have to give Trump credit for using his celebrity time and time again.”....

....“People underestimated Donald Trump’s ability to pillage the company,” said Sebastian Pignatello, a private investor who at one time held stock in the Trump casinos worth more than $500,000. “He drove these companies into bankruptcy by his mismanagement, the debt and his pillaging.”

This article is amazing, and frightening. Trump has proven to be ruthlessly efficient at stripping money for himself from lenders, shareholders, and companies working for him. Getting the Casino company to take over his personal debt while running the assets into the ground to stave off bankruptcy. It didn't work and his company filed for, and received bankruptcy protection FOUR times. Each time his creditors took a significant right down on money they were owed. Trump might not be in the pocket of big pharma, or oil, or tobacco, but he must owe a lot of serious investment companies favours...

Hands down the craziest event I've ever seen. That storm that smashed NSW created the perfect conditions for one of the worlds heaviest slab waves. 2 days, 16 insane surfers, untold smashings, and some of the thickest barrels ever. The Red Bull Cape Fear event only happens when the conditions are right, it's been 2 years since the last one. Conditions were right this week - sort of...

Day 1 probably shouldn't have happened - just too dangerous. Day 2 seemed a little tame by comparison, but by any other yard stick it was insane on it's own.

With Mr Field's history it's a real shame he wasn't included in the international cadre of journalists who worked through the Panama Papers. I think we'd have a number of interesting stories from our region if he had full access. Hopefully they come out in time anyway.
