Teddy Cruzer took Iowa, Looks like it will be a 3 man race soon. Wonder what Jebby boy will do, stay in long enough to burn through his cash flying private jets and staying in 6 star hotels?

Jeb should officially change his name to Fredo.

Cruz, if nominee, has ZERO chance of winning in a general election.

TRUMP is the only chance for saving the sinking ship, if it, in fact, can still be saved.
He's not a career politician or blood sucking lawyer, and not beholden to contributors.

Wolverine, I wholeheartedly agree with your position on Trump and appreciate your efforts in this thread!

I am a follower of Christ, and I see Cruz only as a liar and a snake. He parades like he is conservative, but beneath it he (and his wife) has been a power seeker from the beginning.

I believe Trump is the last chance we have for this country to turn around, or at least buy some time before the wicked take over.

Trump Is Not Conservative, He’s A Pragmatist

We recently enjoyed a belated holiday dinner with friends at the home of other friends. The dinner conversation was jocund, ranging from discussions about antique glass and china to theology and politics. At one point reference was made to Donald Trump being a conservative to which I responded that Trump is not a conservative.

I said that I neither view nor do I believe Trump views himself as a conservative. I stated it was my opinion that Trump is a pragmatist. He sees a problem and understands it must be fixed. He doesn’t see the problem as liberal or conservative, he sees it only as a problem. That is a quality that should be admired and applauded, not condemned. But I get ahead of myself.

Viewing problems from a liberal perspective has resulted in the creation of more problems, more entitlement programs, more victims, more government, more political correctness, and more attacks on the working class in all economic strata.

Viewing things according to the so-called Republican conservative perspective has brought continued spending, globalism to the detriment of American interests and well being, denial of what the real problems are, weak, ineffective, milquetoast, leadership that amounts to Barney Fife Deputy Sheriff – appeasement oriented and afraid of its own shadow. In brief, it has brought liberal ideology with a pachyderm as a mascot juxtaposed to the ass of the Democrat Party.

I hope Trump is not misleading the conservatives while ushering in the Trojan Horse. His political history leans to liberal Democrats and Rockefeller Republicans. If he does what he espouses, we may be on a path to a long and difficult recovery. If Trump has deceived his 'flock', God help us. I will vote for him if he is the Republicans candidate because any Democrat candidate will finish what the Muslim POTUS has done for eight years and quickly decimate our Republic, IMO.

I hope you aren't getting "information" about Donald Trump from Ted Cruz. When you are in business, you commonly give money to both sides. I assure you that hypocrite Cruz has received money from corporate sponsors that are likewise donating to democrats, so his assertion that Trump "supported Carter over Reagan" is empty rhetoric. Mr. Trump provided far more assistance to the Reagan campaign, above & beyond financial donations, than was equivalent of any monetary donation to Carter campaign. Cruz takes his rhetoric a step further in asserting that Trump, just because he may have donated to various politicians, is somehow responsible for unpopular legislation or positions such as amnesty, open border policies, NAFTA, and Obamacare. The hypocrisy of Ted Cruz knows no bounds....

Trump is our best bet, based upon our choices. We do not require someone that can "behave presidential", we've had those and they accomplished nothing
other than put our country in the screwed up mess it's in and act presidential whilst doing it. We need a leader, not another smooth talking politician/barrister.

So you want to make a billionaire more powerful and richer?...what a billionaire knows about working hard to put food on the table or pay the electric bill? How about sweating bullets to find money for gas so you can make it to work or take your sick child to the doctor?

What does a billionaire knows about eating just ramen noodles for dinner because you can't afford the dollar menu from mcdonald. Yeah, folks, this is america. A billionaire would just toss the t-bone steak he didn't like it to the trash and have his personal chef, not cook, but chef to make his t-bone steak right and with the right dressings, appetizers, cheeses and of course, his wine...must have that weird, super old and super expensive bottle of wine from his very personal secret wine cellar......

I would much rather put joe the plumber for president than this payaso.

Everyone has their own personal reasons why they are choosing x or y candidate. For me, I won't vote for a super rich person, and more than anything, I won't vote for someone who doesn't have the capacity to understand all the external issues that can potentially leads to more wars.

The next president, whoever that is, will inherit the war in Afghanistan, the conflict in Syria, the ongoing conflict in Iraq with ISIS, the very shaky situation in figuring out how to contain Russia, how to contain China and prevent a conflict due to the South China Sea and Senkaku islands of Japan, how to contain North Korea, how to maintain Security in South America, how to deal with Iran, how to deal with Pakistan, how to deal with Saudi Arabia, how to deal with deal with piracy close to the Hormutz Straight and so on........

I already experience war, and I know that the next generation, the generations of my children are the ones who will fill the gap of those of us who already left the service. Wars can't be avoided when a politician wants to make war. But rest assure that if my son or my daughter are going to fight the battle, I want someone competent. Because in the end, it is my son, my daughter, my children friends, my friends children who will be fighting the battle.

Mil2B71:

You misunderstand my position. Please allow me to clarify. You played the Service card, 'tis true..but you played it badly. I have utmost respect for our US military, but the way you write causes me to believe you don't think things through. That was also my point regarding your previous posts about wealthy people.

Read some books on wealth creation, and you will find there is an underlying correlation in them which shows that it is your state of mind that is most critical in achieving success. Those who spend time bashing others more successful or wealthier than themselves are doomed to stay in their current status. "Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks" points out that you are more focused on bashing (venting your own frustrations) than focusing on attaining true success and forthrightly dealing with those frustrations.

To judge Mr. Trump on his accumulated wealth, rather than to think for a moment of the qualities needed to achieve such wealth is not a trait of success. To not recognize the importance of the vision required to see what is possible, create viable strategies to attain that vision, initiate the execution of those strategies, manage deviations in plans, dealing with government regulations and competition that may not want your plans to materialize, etc is to completely miss what it actually takes to win.

I would think you'd have learned that kind of thinking in boot camp. I was once like you..I was envious of the rich & often bad-mouthed them (even though I had no idea of what it required to reach their income levels) until I studied some of what I stated above..you can not succeed while ripping down those who have passed before you on the same path.

You made many assumptions about me. You have no idea who I am, nor what my life experiences are.. sufficient to say you are way off base, and an experienced military man should know that incorrect assumptions get you killed in battle..and the same applies in business. Trump has a proven track record of not only getting things done, but getting them done fast, cheap, with lasting results. I have been on the Trump train since the mid-eighties, I know who this man is and have wanted him to run for office since the 90's.

If you love America and understand the nature of this battle, if you truly understand what it is we are fighting against, the solution becomes obvious. At this time there is no other individual in the race who has the vision, stamina, mental discipline, the experience, the track record of achievement, and most importantly..a love of America and desire to honestly serve by leading our hapless representatives into actually accomplishing what we've sent them to government to do; and that is Make America Great Again.

Show me one other person with Mr. Trump's qualifications and track record of getting it done and I would certainly take an honest and unassuming look at that person. Show me one person who is willing and able to come up with his own money to run, not having to beg others to contribute cash so that they, with all their vast ability (except the ability to make enough in private life to afford to run) can "save" us. That smells like a con, and we've been conned for decades by these types.

But, if you bash with group-think, envy driven, media encouraged comments and assumptions against the true strength of others, you expose yourself to replies such as mine..by people who recognize your lack of substance and knowledge in the argument.

Peace out, Bro. Thanks for putting your life on the line in Iraq. I pray that you achieve to the wealth you desire, once you let go of the intellectual chains that keep you from attaining that goal.

Goggle the Khan Academy, there you can take, or acquire for free all the business education possessed by Trump. You can start with micro economics and then do the macro economics. You can acquire a world class education for free. Today's technology makes lack of knowledge or education a excuse as education can quickly be acquired simply by googling the Khan Academy. Millions do from other countries. However in the US mostly the Gates kids, rich kids or private schools use the free source. Education solves 98% of ones problems. https://www.khanacademy.org/

Simply as that. If I was to bash others that are wealthy, I would be bashing The Onassis, Bill Gates, Carlos Simms, Warren Buffet, Steve Jobs and so on. Donald Trump simply don't win my sympathy or vote.

To judge Mr. Trump on his accumulated wealth, rather than to think for a moment of the qualities needed to achieve such wealth is not a trait of success. To not recognize the importance of the vision required to see what is possible, create viable strategies to attain that vision, initiate the execution of those strategies, manage deviations in plans, dealing with government regulations and competition that may not want your plans to materialize, etc is to completely miss what it actually takes to win.

What qualities does he has? A womanizer? Check! A racist? Check! And many others......He may have done couple things here and there. But nothing spectacular. Nothing that could tell me that he has the "vision" as you may call. So you think that just because he has done some, and let me underline "some" successful business ventures, (humm, let's not take in account the several times he declared bankruptcy) he is the most qualified individual to be president?.....man, let me go back to declare that Joe the Plumber is the better prospect.

I would think you'd have learned that kind of thinking in boot camp. I was once like you..I was envious of the rich & often bad-mouthed them (even though I had no idea of what it required to reach their income levels) until I studied some of what I stated above..you can not succeed while ripping down those who have passed before you on the same path.

Nope, I am not envious of the rich. But I do believe that sending Trump to the White House, you are empowering and making him richer. He is not worth my try buddy.

You made many assumptions about me. You have no idea who I am, nor what my life experiences are.. sufficient to say you are way off base, and an experienced military man should know that incorrect assumptions get you killed in battle..and the same applies in business. Trump has a proven track record of not only getting things done, but getting them done fast, cheap, with lasting results. I have been on the Trump train since the mid-eighties, I know who this man is and have wanted him to run for office since the 90's.

I don't know your life experiences, nor do I care about it.

Ohh yes, wrong assumptions gets men killed in battle, that is why we do Operations Orders, where we, research and plans about what are assumptions and what are facts.... and so far, Donald Trump or You for that matter has not provided any facts whatsoever regarding his "brilliant" business mindset other than declare bankruptcy several times....

If you love America and understand the nature of this battle, if you truly understand what it is we are fighting against, the solution becomes obvious.

LOL.....Maybe I am blind, because I don't see what solution you are talking about.

"If I Love America" you ask?....what is more love for a country that being willing to give my life for it?.....Have you? Have you ever been willing to lay you life for your country in a faraway land full of hatred for your country, and knowing that if you are captured you will be shredded in pieces?......

And I don't think that there are many men in this forum that understand the nature of a battle better that I do.So why don't you tell me what are we fighting against?.....

At this time there is no other individual in the race who has the vision, stamina, mental discipline, the experience, the track record of achievement, and most importantly..a love of America and desire to honestly serve by leading our hapless representatives into actually accomplishing what we've sent them to government to do; and that is Make America Great Again.

Ohhh Sure!! Verify these facts:

Beginning in 1989, Donald Trump’s investments and business endeavors took a turn for the worse. The recession of the late 80s/early 90s took a toll on the entire nation but by 1991 Trump was up to his ears in $900 million in personal debt and $3.5 billion in business debt. He declared bankruptcy. By 1995, despite making headway in settling his debts, his Atlantic City casinos began to fail, unable to compete with newer casinos built by other investors.

In 2004, his company again declared bankruptcy and Trump lost his majority ownership in Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts to his investors. The company briefly climbed back into profitability before again declaring bankruptcy in 2009.


The Donald used to own a megayacht he named “The Trump Princess”. It’s a 281 foot craft that is absolutely enormous. Built in 1980 for a Saudi billionaire, it cost $100 million to build it at the time and, in 1998, Trump practically stole it for the low price of $29 million. In 1991, because he was going broke, he sold it for $40 million bucks to a Saudi Prince for $11 million in profit.


As I stated, he may done "some" good business ventures, but there is absolutely nothing in that man that would cause me to run and vote for him. And if you think he is honest...you are delusional.

Show me one other person with Mr. Trump's qualifications and track record of getting it done and I would certainly take an honest and unassuming look at that person.

The answer? There is no one right now in neither party.

Show me one person who is willing and able to come up with his own money to run, not having to beg others to contribute cash so that they, with all their vast ability (except the ability to make enough in private life to afford to run) can "save" us. That smells like a con, and we've been conned for decades by these types.

Don't you see that even when he loses the elections, he already won?...... You seems to me that you are smart...think about those words....

And yes, I am talking about the future, because that is what I see. I am not favoring him, but neither I favor Hillary Clinton. However, the more I hear Trump speaking, the more distant I want to be from him.

But, if you bash with group-think, envy driven, media encouraged comments and assumptions against the true strength of others, you expose yourself to replies such as mine..by people who recognize your lack of substance and knowledge in the argument.

So far you have proven nothing. The only thing you have shown is underlining your assumed Trump attributes, what is required to be rich and wealthy and some other nuisances. Nothing that will strike me with the "WOW" factor. You may say that I have the "group-think, envy driven, media encouraged comments and assumptions against the true strength of others" but, in your case, you are a victim of what is known as "Contagion Theory". Let me enlighten you a little bit about it. Contagion theory talks about collective behavior of human beings. Members of a group act similarly as crowd behavior as people have a habit of following crowd. Communication is also done in the form of a collective behavior, as a mass of people believe in the same things and react similar too. Crowds are supposed to create a hypnotic effect on people which spreads from one person to another... Hey, even Hitler took advantage of this phenomenon to rise to power before WWII.

Peace out, Bro. Thanks for putting your life on the line in Iraq. I pray that you achieve to the wealth you desire, once you let go of the intellectual chains that keep you from attaining that goal.

I have already achieved that goal, years ago. Trust me when I say I don't have financial worries, neither I worry about running out of money. My intellectual chains keep me well grounded, with my feet on the earth, and my head on my shoulders because very intellectual, I believe I am. I am not saying that I am rich, I just simply don't have the worries others has.

And should I ever need some lecturing on how to achieve well grounded financial advice, I just crack open one on my favorites books.... Seth Klarman’s Margin of Safety, Risk Averse Investing Strategies for the Thoughtful Investor. You should read it too.

Goggle the Khan Academy, there you can take, or acquire for free all the business education possessed by Trump. You can start with micro economics and then do the macro economics. You can acquire a world class education for free. Today's technology makes lack of knowledge or education a excuse as education can quickly be acquired simply by googling the Khan Academy. Millions do from other countries. However in the US mostly the Gates kids, rich kids or private schools use the free source. Education solves 98% of ones problems. https://www.khanacademy.org/

I already took micro and macro economics in college...long ass time ago. And I already went well beyond graduate degree, so, I can guarantee you that I have far more completed education that Donald Trump has. And if you have enough money, you can too possess the education he has, or better. He graduated from Wharton School of Business, and that is, to my opinion, the only single best achievement he could be credited for.

Trump is now devising a plan to get rid of the Dodd Frank bill which has made loan sharking legal. Clinton got rid of the Glass-Steagall act which kept the bankers under check. The Dodd Frank bill will slowly kill the middle class and no other candidate even mentions it. Hillary's husband did a huge disservice to the American people and she did nothing.

This is going to be an scenario similar to what we saw in 2012...when all the polls reported that Mitt Romney was on the lead by a long shot...and then...PUUFFF !!! Election Day showed that Obama beat the living crap out of Romney...the beating was so bad, that Mitt ended up hiding for days and weeks because he was way too depressed to show his failed face...

Trump....it will be the same...except that all the polls is showing Hillary beating Trump by a 5 Points spread....

Again, I am not a supported of Hillary Clinton, but no way in hell I am going to support an individual who has ABSOLUTELY NO qualifications to hold the highest public office in the United States...

From the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria (also known as ISIS) to Russian aggression in Europe to China’s territorial claims in the South China Sea, the next U.S. president will face a sweeping range of geopolitical and military threats. Many Americans' appetite for broad global engagement remains at low levels (http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2014/04/01/americans-disengaged-feeling-less-respected-but-still-see-u-s-as-worlds-military-superpower/) after the lengthy wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Military leaders have so far been reticent about naming Trump directly, but concerns about his foreign policy views are increasingly evident ahead of the July 18-21 Republican convention in Cleveland.


Even the military, who normally are quiet about it, has said some remarks about Trump....“If you take the man at his word, he has committed himself to setting off the largest civil-military crisis probably since the American Civil War, Of course there’s a possibility he doesn’t mean these things and is speaking off the cuff, but I don’t think that’s defensible in a presidential candidate.”

The 2016 presidential election has been a driving force in discussions about the role of the military, with Trump calling (http://www.nytimes.com/politics/first-draft/2016/04/02/donald-trump-tells-crowd-hed-be-fine-if-nato-broke-up/) the NATO military and political alliance “obsolete,” saying soldiers are “afraid to fight” (http://www.politico.com/blogs/2016-gop-primary-live-updates-and-results/2016/03/donald-trump-geneva-conventions-221394) because of the Geneva Conventions, which govern conduct in war, and arguing for the use of torture (http://www.cnn.com/2016/03/06/politics/donald-trump-torture/) to “beat the savages,” in a reference to ISIS.


“They won’t refuse [to torture suspected terrorists],” Trump said (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/checkpoint/wp/2016/03/07/the-military-is-not-his-palace-guards-retired-three-star-general-says-of-donald-trump/) of U.S. service members during a March debate. “They’re not going to refuse me, believe me. If I say do it, they’re going to do it. That’s what leadership is all about.”


When asked by U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, a former presidential candidate, about waterboarding, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford, without naming Trump, told the Senate in March that forcing troops to carry out waterboarding or the targeting of civilians would hurt morale.


“Those kinds of activities that you described are inconsistent with the values of our nation. And quite frankly I think it would have an adverse effect,” Dunford said (http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-torture-idUSKCN0WJ2GA). “And frankly what you are suggesting are things that actually aren’t legal for them to do anyway.”


For those who has served in the military, we understand that we follow orders, but at the same time, we can REFUSE orders that we consider are unlawful. So him saying that we would do that if he says so.... Ain't gonna happen....and that alone shows his very poor leadership skills...

True leadership is doing what is right and leading the men through the right path. Those men will look at you as an example to do the right thing so you can feel proud of your contribution to this great nation... when that example of righteousness is absent, then all those core values taught for so long will be either gone or will lack the will be to followed up.

And if the Commander in Chief acts that way...what can we expect from our men and women in uniform?

In new poll, support for Trump has plunged, giving Clinton a double-digit lead
Donald Trump returns to the campaign trail from Scotland this week contending with sweeping unease about his candidacy as a large majority of Americans register their disapproval and see the Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee as discriminatory and unqualified, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll (https://www.washingtonpost.com/page/2010-2019/WashingtonPost/2016/06/26/National-Politics/Polling/release_428.xml).


Following a month of self*-inflicted controversies, the survey shows that support for Trump is plunging, including among fellow Republicans, propelling Democrat Hillary Clinton to a double-digit lead nationally. The poll reveals fresh doubts about Trump within his own party just three weeks before Republicans convene in Cleveland for their national convention.

https://img.washingtonpost.com/rf/image_1484w/2010-2019/WashingtonPost/2016/06/26/National-Politics/Graphics/w-poll-0626-1-v2.jpg?uuid=PRMm-juiEeaeFkzwGkHeyw


The survey finds broad objections to Trump’s candidacy — from his incendiary rhetoric and values to his handling of both terrorism and his own business — foreshadowing that the November election could be a referendum on Trump more than anything else.


Roughly 2 in 3 Americans say that they think Trump is unqualified to lead the nation (here folks....at least there are some intelligent people who can see reality for what it is...reality); are anxious about the idea of him as president; believe his comments about women, minorities and Muslims show an unfair bias; and consider his attacks on a federal judge because of his Mexican American heritage to be racist.

Those are the very same pollsters that said Trump would drop out before primaries, and the he would never actually win a state primary, and that he would never be the presumptive nominee.
The only purpose such polls serve is attempting to shape the narrative, but the public have caught on, it is no longer effective !

There are stark contrasts between having a proud Mexican-American heritage and be a "supposedly" unbiased judge that belongs to La Raza.

César Chávez was a critic of La Raza, stating to Peter Matthiessen of The New Yorker, "“I hear more and more Mexicans talking about la raza—to build up their pride. Some people don’t look at it as racism, but when you say ‘la raza,’ you are saying an anti-gringo thing, and it won’t stop there. Today it’s anti-gringo, tomorrow it will be anti-Negro. We had a stupid guy who just wanted to play politics with the union, and he began to whip up La Raza against the white volunteers, and even had some of the farm workers and the pickets and the organizers hung up on la raza. So I took him on. These things have to be met head on. On discrimination, I don’t even give the members the privilege of a vote, and I’m not ashamed of it. No, the whole business of discrimination can’t exist here. So often, these days, the leaders are afraid, and even though they feel strongly against racism, they will not speak out against it. If the leadership is united, then it can say, ‘All right, if you’re going to do things that way, then you’ll have to get rid of us.’ You have to speak out immediately, the first time."

""That's one of the reasons (Chávez) is so upset about La Raza. The same Mexicans that ten years ago were talking about themselves as Spaniards are coming on real strong these days as Mexicans. Everyone should be proud of what they are, of course, but race is only skin-deep. It's phony and it comes out of frustration; the la raza people are not secure. They look upon Cesar as their 'dumb Mexican' leader; he's become their saint. But he doesn't want any part of it. He said to me just the other day, 'Can't they understand that that's just the way Hitler started?' A few months ago the Ford Foundation funded a la raza group and Cesar really told them off. The foundation liked the outfit's sense of pride or something, and Cesar tried to explain to them what the origin of the word was, that it's related to Hitler's concept."

None of these non-sense ads are going to improve his imagine. It is just not going to happen....


What you failed to understand is that an attack on one single hispanic person, it is an attack on the entire hispanic population in the US and abroad. And there is absolutely no way a candidate is going to win without the hispanic and women vote. Again...Ask Mitt Romney....he would tell you the same....

Understand this.... Mexicans are NOT the only latinos here....

There are 23 Countries that speak spanish and most are what is considered " New World"...which falls under "Hispanic" category...then you have those that are from Europe, which would be "spanish" heritage"...
However, for this particular instance, all spanish speaking countries would be considered latinos.....


I am one who is anxious to see a debate, a true face off between Hillary and Donald....now, THAT will be very interesting....

Trump’s baffled: ‘Why am I not doing better in the polls?’



Last weekend, Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s campaign chairman, appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” and expressed nothing but confidence (http://www.nbcnews.com/meet-the-press/meet-press-june-26-2016-n599196) about the state of the race. Chuck Todd noted recent polling showing Hillary Clinton leading and asked Manafort whether he’d concede that his candidate was trailing. “No,” he replied, adding, “[W]e’re confident that we are not behind the Clinton campaign.”

Obviously, the polling evidence is readily accessible (http://elections.huffingtonpost.com/pollster/2016-general-election-trump-vs-clinton), but more to the point, Manafort doesn’t appear to have convinced his boss. Politico had this report (http://www.politico.com/story/2016/06/trump-polls-performance-224982) yesterday on Trump’s appearance on Mike Gallagher’s conservative talk-radio show.
“Well, you know, I really feel it, Mike. I go to Ohio, we were there two days ago, and Pennsylvania and near Pittsburgh and we – I was in West Virginia, the crowds are massive. And you know, I walked out of one, and I said, ‘I don’t see how I’m not leading,’” Trump said, invoking the size of his crowds.

“We have thousands of people standing outside trying to get in, and they’re great people and they have such spirit for the country and love for the country, and I’m saying, you know, ‘Why am I not doing better in the polls?’”

First, the fact that Trump is even asking the question is notable, given the campaign’s pretense that Trump is doing just fine in the polls. “I don’t see how I’m not leading” is the sort of thing a candidate says when he knows that he’s … not leading.

Second, and more important, is the fact that the first-time candidate doesn’t seem to understand the difference between having fans show up at public events and actually winning at the national and statewide level. Bernie Sanders also saw “massive” crowds, and as impressive as that was, the senator still came up short in the race for the Democratic nomination.

Every major presidential candidate can draw an audience. That doesn’t mean he or she is going to win.

That said, these comments from Trump aren’t just amateurish, they also shed light on why he assumes the polls are wrong. In the Republican’s mind, if the surveys were correct, he wouldn’t have thousands of people showing up to cheer him. That doesn’t actually make any sense, but from his perspective, it’s easier to believe “crowds = victory” than to accept polls showing him trailing.

The best part will be when Trump throws a little tidbit of truth in her face and she loses her notorious temper and has a full on meltdown on debate stage, it will be infinitely EPIC !!!

Or, you could ask, why waste your meaningful vote with an evil, psychotic, lying POS who's main platform is that she is a woman???

Pass the popcorn!!

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!! LET'S MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!

Dude.... I am not trying to insult you...but....damn...you make it so damn hard not to...

Do you know how to read?................If you read my previous posts, I have clearly stated more than once, that I am not, I AM NOT, in favor of Hillary Clinton, and really.....REALLY....VERY CLEARLY NOT on the side of Donald Trump. If there is a third party candidate, that is the one who will get my vote.

I hope that gets my point across.

I stated that I can't wait to see the debate because it will be very interesting to see a candidate who, despite all she has done, is very intelligent (remember, she is a Harvard Law graduate) and, despite everything, she has been involved in the politics for a very long time.

I don't believe that Donald Trump can be a match for her. I highly doubt it. This is the same as asking a medical graduate doctor with an specialty in adult neurology to go and debate against a person who has a bachelor degree in business about adult aging and the effects on the brain.....humm...who would win?.....the choice is obvious.

Business alone doesn't make politicians a successful person. There is far more to it than just screaming obscenities, racial profiling, and insulting women to win the Oval Office...and Trump has been dumb and empty-brained enough to do just the opposite to win the hearts and minds of the people.

I understand that many of you are tired of Obama, many of you are tired of the current economic situation, and many of you are also tired of how we are positioned as the world leaders, but...use the common sense...this man, is nothing but the one who will cause WWIII to erupt.

By the way...did I mentioned all the possible mental issues that Trump may be suffering of?.........

I think I will leave to another post later on....LOL....:D :o :D :o...

Peace Out Brothers....MTB71 Out....

Trump retreats on comments on raising taxes on the wealthy

By Doina Chiacu and Emily Stephenson, Reuters
May 9, 2016


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump backtracked on Monday on his remarks about raising taxes on wealthy Americans, saying the rich might simply get a smaller tax cut than he originally proposed.


Trump walked away from his Sunday comment that taxes on the wealthy would "go up" once his broad tax policy proposals, which include tax cuts for rich Americans, were negotiated with Congress. That appeared to be a break with traditional Republican support for lower taxes in all income brackets.

On Monday, Trump said he did not mean to imply he was willing to raise taxes for people in higher-income brackets from their current level, but was referring to potential adjustments to his own tax policy proposal."I may have to increase it on the wealthy - I'm not going to allow it to be increased on the middle class," Trump said on CNN. "Now, if I increase it on the wealthy, that means they're still going to be paying less than they are paying now. I'm talking about increasing it from my (original) tax proposal."The proposal, released in September, included broad tax breaks for businesses and households, with the highest income tax rate cut to 25 percent from the current 39.6 percent.Trump, a billionaire real estate developer, said on Monday that lowering taxes on the middle class and businesses was his priority."I'm not talking about a tax increase. I'm talking about a tremendous tax decrease, OK?"

Trump said on the Fox Business Network. He said proposals always changed in negotiations with Congress but that he was committed to cutting taxes.

The contradictory statements came as Trump began pivoting to a general election race against likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Trump effectively clinched the Republican nomination for the Nov. 8 presidential election last week after his last two rivals dropped out of the race.Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former Bush administration official who also advised Republican
John McCain during his failed 2008 presidential run, said Trump was trying to make his economic plans add up.'IMPENETRABLE'"He’s gone from wildly unrealistic to impenetrable" on the subject of taxes, Holtz-Eakin said, adding that Trump's comments about the outcome of possible negotiations with Congress "makes me confused as to what he really wants."

Trump did win support from influential anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist, who said on CNBC on Monday that some people with a lot of tax credits might see some increase, but that rates would drop overall under Trump's plan."He's made it very clear he wants lower taxes," Norquist said. "Trump's tax cut would be a tax cut for every American."Norquist's group, Americans for Tax Reform, asks all Republican candidates to sign a no-new-taxes pledge, but Trump has not signed one yet. Norquist said he was confident the candidate would sign, given his public comments.

The Clinton campaign was happy to take Trump at his word that he planned to cut wealthy Americans' taxes.It cited an analysis of Trump's proposal by the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center estimating it would give the wealthiest Americans an average annual boost of more than $1.3 million a year."

This is a tax plan by the billionaire for the billionaires,” Clinton adviser Jake Sullivan said. “And after some confusing comments over the weekend, he actually doubled down today on the fact that his tax plan would have massive cuts for the wealthy. Who knows what he'll say tomorrow?"Trump also sought on Monday to clarify comments he made last week about the U.S. debt.

He said he never espoused restructuring or defaulting on government debt but would buy it back at a discount if interest rates go up."He should stop talking about the debt because he hasn’t said anything that makes any sense yet," Holtz-Eakin said.

Trump's candidacy has opened a rift in the Republican Party, with many leaders appalled by his rhetoric on immigrants, Muslims and women and concerned that some policy positions such as his opposition to free trade run counter to Republican orthodoxy.

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan, who said last week he was not yet ready to endorse Trump, said on Monday he would step down as co-chairman of the July 18-21 Republican National Convention if Trump wants him to. Trump on Sunday did not rule out pushing Ryan out from the speaker's traditional role as convention chairman.Ryan and Trump will meet on Thursday to try to iron out their differences. Later on Thursday, the candidate will meet with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other members of the Senate Republican leadership, a Senate Republican aide said on Monday.Trump said on Monday that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a former presidential rival who endorsed his candidacy shortly after dropping out of the race, would lead his White House transition team.

Republican U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, another vanquished presidential rival, sought on Monday to quash speculation he might emerge as the vice presidential running mate for Trump, saying he still had deep reservations about the former reality television star.

Questionable tax-free payments to Trump staffers raise 'red flags' Lori Ann LaRocco (http://www.cnbc.com/lori-ann-larocco/)
12 Hours AgoCNBC.com


A series of filing anomalies point to a Donald Trump (http://www.cnbc.com/donald-trump/) camp that is either unaware of campaign finance law, or is actively funneling donors' cash to insiders, according to several experts interviewed by CNBC.


These "red flags," as one expert deemed them, include a total lack of disclosure on which vendors staffers for the presumptive Republican nominee are paying, an "unusual" six-figure payout to campaign staff for nontaxable expenses and what appeared to be double reimbursements for some employees' expenses.


When asked about the apparently unusual filing practices, Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in an email that "the report speaks for itself."


But experts said that message was not entirely clear, and at the very least broke with long-established protocols — something that would be entirely keeping in character for one of the most surprising campaigns in the modern era.


"In my view, the situation is significant if (what) we are seeing is a pattern that reflects serious problems with the campaign," Larry Noble, general counsel of the Campaign Legal Center who also worked for 13 years as Federal Election Commission general counsel, told CNBC. "If the report is speaking for itself, it's not saying anything coherent."


The Campaign Legal Center is a nonpartisan, nonprofit watchdog organization that works with the courts and federal agencies to enforce and defend campaign finance laws. The center recently filed a complaint with the FEC against the Trump campaign for its solicitation of money from foreign nationals and politicians.



This is not the first time transparency surrounding the Trump campaign's filings has been a potential issue. The Reports Analysis Division of the FEC, which audits campaign filings, issued a letter to the campaign on Nov. 15, 2015, requesting disclosure on payroll and cash disbursements to Trump Payroll Corp. and Trump Tower Commercial LLC that are in the campaign's October quarterly report.

Trump refiled his amended report on Dec. 17, 2015. After reviewing the amended report, CNBC called the FEC, which said it is not currently investigating any Trump presidential campaign filings.


Double payments?



The Trump camp's handling of so-called contribution refunds also sparked questions. All Trump staffers who logged "in-kind" purchases were both reimbursed for those costs and also appeared to receive a second payment in the form of a campaign contribution refund.



In addition to representing a second payment, this practice raises questions because contribution refunds are normally for donors who exceed their legally defined limits, not paid staffers, multiple experts told CNBC. That second staffer refund "does not make sense," Noble said.



But does it matter?



Frenkel said that "red flags," such as those potentially identified in Trump's filings are considered "smoke" for investigators, and it's up to the agencies to see if it is smolder or there is fire.


"It is much too early to tell if this may lead to a criminal investigation, but (the information detailed in this report) justifies the FEC and possibly the IRS trying to determine what is behind these findings in the campaign's public disclosure documents," Frenkel said.


"Whether these are issues for the individuals, if they are receiving double or improper payments, or for the campaign if there are improper reimbursements, that information only can become known by drilling down into the payments to each person and the attendant circumstances," he added.

After Saying He Forgave Loans to Campaign, Trump Won't Release Proof


Ari Melber and Alexandra Jaffe

Thursday, 30 Jun 2016 | 10:00 AM ETNBC NEWS












When Donald Trump (http://www.cnbc.com/donald-trump/) said last Thursday he was forgiving over $45 million in personal loans he made to his campaign, the announcement drew plenty of coverage. Many even reported Trump's statement as if the deal was done.


But it's not.


A week later, NBC News has learned the FEC has posted no record of Trump converting his loans to donations. The Trump Campaign has also declined requests to share the legal paperwork required to execute the transaction, though they suggest it has been submitted.

Last week, campaign spokesperson Hope Hicks said Trump was submitting formal paperwork forgiving the loan on Thursday, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Reached by NBC this week, she said the paperwork "will be filed with the next regularly scheduled FEC report," and declined to provide any documentation.

Trump Institute used plagiarized course materials

Thursday, 30 Jun 2016 | 6:44 AM ET|00:36



In 2005, as he was making a transition from developing real estate to capitalizing on his fame through ventures like a reality show and product-licensing deals, Donald J. Trump (http://www.cnbc.com/donald-trump/) hit upon a two-pronged strategy for entering the field of for-profit education.

He poured his own money into Trump University, which began as a distance-learning business advising customers on how to make money in real estate, but left a long trail of customers alleging they were defrauded.

And its customers had ample reason to ask whether they, too, had been deceived.


As with Trump University, the Trump Institute promised falsely that its teachers would be handpicked by Mr. Trump. Mr. Trump did little, interviews show, besides appear in an infomercial — one that promised customers access to his vast accumulated knowledge. "I put all of my concepts that have worked so well for me, new and old, into our seminar," he said in the 2005 video, adding, "I'm teaching what I've learned."


Reality fell far short. In fact, the institute was run by a couple who had run afoul of regulators in dozens of states and had been dogged by accusations of deceptive business practices and fraud for decades. Similar complaints soon emerged about the Trump Institute.


Yet there was an even more fundamental deceit to the business, unreported until now: Extensive portions of the materials that students received after paying their seminar fees, supposedly containing Mr. Trump's special wisdom, had been plagiarized from an obscure real estate manual published a decade earlier.

"That Trump Institute, what criminals they are," said Carol Minto of West Haven, Conn., a retired court reporter who attended one seminar in 2009 and agreed to spend $1,997.94 to attend another before having second thoughts. She wound up requiring the help of two states' attorneys general in getting a refund. "They wanted to steal my money," she said.

The institute was another example of the Trump brand's being accused of luring vulnerable customers with false promises of profit and success. Others, besides Trump University, include multilevel marketing ventures that sold vitamins and telecommunications services, and a vanity publisher that faced hundreds of consumer complaints.

More from the New York Times:

'We're an Easy Target': Taken In by the Trump Brand (http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/26/us/politics/cambridge-whos-who-trump-brand.html)
Former Trump University Workers Call the School a 'Lie' and a 'Scheme' in Testimony (http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/01/us/politics/donald-trump-university.html)
At Trump University, Students Recall Pressure to Give Positive Reviews (http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/12/us/politics/donald-trump-trump-university.html)

Mr. Trump's infomercial performance suggested he was closely overseeing the Trump Institute. "People are loving it," he said in the program, titled "The Donald Trump Way to Wealth" and staged like a talk show in front of a wildly enthusiastic audience. "People are really doing well with it, and they're loving it." His name, picture and aphorisms like "I am the American Dream, supersized version" were all over the course materials.


Yet while he owned 93 percent of Trump University, the Trump Institute was owned and operated by Irene and Mike Milin, a couple who had been marketing get-rich-quick courses since the 1980s.

The Milins were known for running full-page ads that screamed "FREE MONEY!" and offered tutorials on how to obtain government grants and loans. They were also notorious for being frequent targets of state regulators. In 1993, the Texas attorney general accused their company, then called Information Seminars International, of taking customers' money and running. People who bought a $499 "Milin Method" package were promised financing to resell real estate purchased at government auctions, officials said, but when customers sought to follow up with the company, the Milins had vanished.

In 2001, operating as National Grants Conference, the Milins settled with Florida authorities after being accused of violating the state's Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act. And in 2006, the Vermont attorney general sued the Milins for consumer fraud, ultimately fining them $65,000 and allowing customers to seek more than $325,000 in refunds.

The regulatory woes continued after the Milins rebranded their seminar business with the name of the country's best-known real estate developer: In 2007, 33 state attorneys general signed a letter to the Federal Trade Commission accusing the Milins of deceptive trade practices. A year later, their company sought bankruptcy protection, owing $2.1 million to creditors. The venture continued for a few years.

Operating as the Trump Institute, the Milins pursued familiar tactics — and attracted familiar complaints, eventually earning an F from the Better Business Bureau.

Seminar attendees who later sought assistance from supposed experts over a Trump Institute toll-free phone line complained of being told to ignore what they had been taught in the seminars because it was outdated or useless advice. "The 'advisers' refused to listen to us when we referred to the methods taught in the seminars," Fred and Zofia Besel, a retired couple from New York, wrote in 2009, seeking a refund in a letter that wound up with the Florida attorney general's office.

At least 20 pages of the Trump Institute book were copied entirely or in large part from "Real Estate Mastery System." Even some of its hypothetical scenarios — "Seller A is asking $80,000 for a single-family residence" — were repeated verbatim.

Ms. Parker said she did venture to one of the Trump Institute seminars — and was appalled: The speakers came off like used-car salesmen, she said, and their advice was nothing but banalities. "It was like I was in sleaze America," she said. "It was all smoke and mirrors."

For your education.... (Now, name at least one, ONE significant accomplishment from Donald Trump)

<<<< AGAIN, I AM NOT TAKING ANY POLITICAL SIDE, JUST TALKING ABOUT FACTS HERE>>>>

IF DONALD TRUMP HAD ANY, ANY SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTION, I WOULD HAVE STATED HIS FACTS AS WELL....BUT...HE HAD NONE. NOTHING, NADA ZIP, ZERO, FINITO, NEIN....

HIS ONLY CONTRIBUTION IS JUST A LOUD, SENSELESS, RACIST MOUTH BIGOT..... AND THAT IS MY THOUGHTS OF HIM...

C'MMON REPUBLICANS, YA'LL CAN DO BETTER THAN HIM....MATTER FACT, I WOULD HAVE PREFERRED TO SEE PAUL RYAN AS A CANDIDATE....

‘It’s kind of hard to pick one accomplishment’

By Bill Burton, former senior strategist for Priorities USA Action, a super PAC in support of President Barack Obama.

It’s kind of hard to pick one accomplishment for Hillary Clinton. Personally, I’m sure she’d say her daughter and grandchild are her greatest accomplishments. Professionally, how about these three?

1. Her China speech on women.
2. Her role in killing Osama bin Laden.
3. Management of the State Department during which time we saw a 50 percent increase in exports to China, aggressive work on climate (particularly at Copenhagen), and the effort to create and implement the toughest sanctions ever on Iran—helping to lead us to the agreement currently on the table.


‘The sanction on Iran that brought them to the table’

Howard Dean is the former governor of Vermont and the former chair of the Democratic National Committee.
Hillary Clinton was the principal author of the sanction on Iran that brought them to the table. We cannot afford any Know Nothings like Carly in the White House.

‘Nearly every foreign policy victory of President Obama’s second term has Secretary Clinton’s fingerprints on it’

By Harry Reid, Senate Democratic leader.

American foreign policy was stronger when Hillary Clinton left the State Department than when she arrived. She took the reins from a Bush administration that had left America’s reputation deeply damaged and planted the seeds for the foreign policy successes we see today. From the agreement to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, to the landmark normalization of relations with Cuba, nearly every foreign policy victory of President Obama’s second term has Secretary Clinton’s fingerprints on it.

Her accomplishments extend to health care, as well. As First Lady, she helped create and guide through Congress Children’s Health Insurance Program, a key program that brought health care coverage to millions of children. As a Senator, she worked across the aisle to provide full military health benefits to reservists and National Guard members.

Secretary Clinton was also an outspoken champion for women around the world. She set records for travel while leading the State Department and used every trip to empower the women of the 112 countries she visited. She made gender equality a priority of U.S. foreign policy. And she created the ambassador at large for global women’s issues, a post charged with integrating gender throughout the State Department.

‘The SCHIP program … which expanded health coverage to millions of lower-income children’

By Anita Dunn, Democratic political strategist.

After universal health care failed in 1994, the Clinton Administration was reluctant to go anywhere near healthcare again—Democrats lost the Senate and the House in 1994, and losing the house was for the first time in 40 years. Then-First Lady Hilary Clinton ended up being the White House ally and inside player who worked with Ted Kennedy and Orrin Hatch to create the SCHIP program in Clinton's second term, which expanded health coverage to millions of lower-income children. She has other accomplishments but this one made a huge difference, and came at a time when politically the Administration was cutting deals with Newt Gingrich on the budget and not necessarily all that enthusiastic about revisiting health care.

This obviously isn't her only accomplishment but it is meaningful because she took a political battering after the failure in 1994 but came back to fight again, and was able to work on a bipartisan basis during a very polarized time to get this done. Seems relevant!

‘Clinton is one of the most accomplished people ever to run’

By Chuck Schumer, U.S. Senator for New York, Democratic party.
Hillary Clinton is one of the most accomplished people ever to run for the Presidency. I’m lucky enough to have seen those accomplishments up close from her time as Senator from New York and as Secretary of State. Hillary Clinton was instrumental in helping secure $21 billion in federal aid to help New York rebuild after 9/11. She fought tooth and nail to protect the first responders who rushed into danger when the towers collapsed and was pivotal in the passage of legislation that helped those first responders who got sick get the care and treatment they deserved. She worked night and day to protect and create jobs in New York, whether that was at the Niagara Falls Air Force base or the Center for Bioinformatics at the University of Buffalo. She also led the charge on the Lilly Ledbetter Pay Equity Act, which is now the law of the land.

As Secretary of State, Secretary Clinton was not only inspirational figure for billions of women around the globe, she also did much to restore the shattered credibility of the United States, which had lost so much influence following the failed foreign policies of the previous administration. She negotiated the cease-fire in Gaza that stopped the Hamas from firing rocket after rocket into Israel. She helped secure the START treaty’s ratification, and has advanced women’s rights in countries around the globe. That’s just a snapshot of what Hillary Clinton has accomplished over a lifetime of public service to New York and the country. If you really want to stump a Democrat, you should ask them which of Hillary’s accomplishments is your favorite—there are too many to choose from

‘Rebuilding America’s leadership and prestige overseas after the Bush years’

Bill Richardson is a former secretary of energy and governor of New Mexico.
As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton was key in rebuilding America’s leadership and prestige overseas after the Bush years. She restored our alliances with the EU and key Asian allies as well as key relationships in Africa and Latin America.

‘The Pediatric Research Equity Act’

By Chris Dodd, former U.S. Senator for Connecticut, Democratic party

Having worked with her in the Senate and on the HELP Committee, the first thing that came to mind was her authorship of the Pediatric Research Equity Act. This law requires drug companies to study their products in children. The Act is responsible for changing the drug labeling of hundreds of drugs with important information about safety and dosing of drugs for children. It has improved the health of millions of children who take medications to treat diseases ranging from HIV to epilepsy to asthma. Millions of kids are in better shape and alive because of the law Senator Clinton authored.

‘Crippling sanctions against Iran’

By Paul Begala, political analyst for CNN and counselor to President Bill Clinton

Easy: Iran sanctions. Sec. Clinton accomplished the nearly impossible mission of getting China, Russia, the European Union and the civilized world on board with crippling sanctions against Iran. This is what brought Iran to the negotiating table.

Ms. Fiorina may not see that as an accomplishment, since while she was CEO of Hewlett-Packard the firm sold (http://www.bloombergview.com/articles/2015-09-14/under-fiorina-hp-earned-millions-from-sales-in-iran) hundreds of millions of dollars of computer products the the terrorist regime in Tehran, evading US sanctions.

On May 4, 2016 he became the presumptive Republican nominee for president after his final two primary opponents, Ted Cruz (http://akas.imdb.com/name/nm5563034?ref_=nmbio_trv_48) and John Kasich (http://akas.imdb.com/name/nm1873238?ref_=nmbio_trv_48), dropped out of the race. He became the first major party presidential nominee with no elective, appointive, or military public experience since Wendell Willkie (http://akas.imdb.com/name/nm0932521?ref_=nmbio_trv_48) won the Republican nomination in 1940. If elected he would be the first president with no such prior experience.

There are multiple class-action lawsuits against Donald Trump (http://akas.imdb.com/name/nm0874339?ref_=nmbio_trv_49)'s so-called Trump University because of alleged fraudulent behavior. 400 pages of internal documents of Trump University were released by Judge Gonzalo Curiel, despite sustaining repeated public attacks from Trump, who had fought to keep the details secret. New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman, who has also sued Trump University, said : "If you look at the facts of this case, this shows someone who was absolutely shameless in his willingness to lie to people, to say whatever it took to induce them into his phony seminars." The documents describe how the Trump staff was instructed to target prospective students' weaknesses to encourage them to sign up for ultra-expensive $34,995 'Gold Elite' three-day courses. [The Guardian, June 2016].

So now....we know that not only he is a crook.....but also he is a war dodger !!


And then he said: [on John McCain (http://akas.imdb.com/name/nm0564587?ref_=nmbio_qu_19)] He's not a war hero. He's a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren't captured OK, I hate to tell you.

Not just Saddam: Other strongmen who have received Trump’s praise

On Tuesday, Donald Trump raised eyebrows by praising Saddam Hussein, the former dictator of Iraq, for his tough approach to terrorists.

"Saddam Hussein was a bad guy, right?" the presumptive Republican nominee declared at a campaign rally in North Carolina (https://www.yahoo.com/news/donald-trump-praises-saddam-hussein-for-killing-terrorists-042456610.html).
"He was a bad guy, really bad guy," he continued. "But you know what he did well? He killed terrorists. He did that so good. They didn't read them rights. They didn't talk. They were terrorists. It was over."


The comments quickly became a small media firestorm, but they were actually very much in line with what Trump has said previously on the topic. Trump frequently argues that the Middle East would have been better off if the U.S. never invaded Iraq in 2003 and ousted Hussein, though he was quoted saying in 2002 that he supported the war (https://www.buzzfeed.com/andrewkaczynski/in-2002-donald-trump-said-he-supported-invading-iraq-on-the).


Trump has also offered mixed praise throughout the years for various other international strongmen.


<<<<<<<<<<< HIS COMMENTS>>>>>>>>


Saddam Hussein
Trump frequently touts the strategic role that Iraq played in thwarting Iran's advances, and vice versa. At a rally last December, Trump mocked the outrage against the Iraq dictator’s use of chemical weapons: “Saddam Hussein throws a little gas, everyone goes crazy, 'Oh he’s using gas!'” (Photos: Cliff Owen/AP, AP)

(.... Trump forgets that hundreds of families, women, children and babies were viciously killed by the use of the gas in the cities of Baiji and Haditha..... These were the crimes that actually landed him on the gallows.....so yes, a little gas killed innocent people)

Vladimir Putin
Trump and Putin have repeatedly exchanged compliments, but the mogul stunned an interviewer last December when he defended Putin from allegations that the Kremlin kills critical journalists. “Well, I mean, it’s also a person who kills journalists, political opponents, and invades countries. Obviously that would be a concern, would it not?” MSNBC host Joe Scarborough asked. “He’s running his country, and at least he’s a leader,” Trump replied. “Unlike what we have in this country.”

Kim Jong Un
At a January campaign rally, Trump remarked that North Korea’s supreme leader deserves credit for taking over his country despite his young age. "It's incredible," he added. "He wiped out the uncle. He wiped out this one, that one. I mean, this guy doesn't play games. And we can’t play games with him."

Moammar Gadhafi
Trump said in June that he profited from the former Libyan dictator's attempt to find a location to pitch his tent for the 2009 United Nations General Assembly. Gadhafi reportedly sought to stay at Trump's estate in Bedford, N.Y.

Chinese response to Tiananmen
In a 1990 Playboy interview, Trump spoke critically of the Chinese regime's response to the student-led protests at Tiananmen Square the year before. But he also admired the strength of the Chinese government. "The Chinese government almost blew it. Then they were vicious, they were horrible, but they put it down with strength. That shows you the power of strength. Our country is right now perceived as weak," he said.

C'mmon America !!! Is this the clown we want for President?........ Let's may as well invite Fidel Castro, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Bashour Al Asad, and those other evil people for a nice presidential dinner paid for and courtesy of the the US Taxpayers hard earned money.....

Or....maybe I can help you a bit....

His personal quotes....



You know, it really doesn't matter what [the media] write as long as you've got a young and beautiful piece of ass.


It doesn't hurt to get more education. (he only has a bachelor degree)


All of the women on The Apprentice (http://akas.imdb.com/title/tt0364782?ref_=nmbio_qu_3) (2004) flirted with me - consciously or unconsciously. That's to be expected.


When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.


We have places in London and other places that are so radicalized that the police are afraid for their own lives. ( London?????) Maybe his London....not the one in England..... (That tells you how smart he is)


Paris is no longer the safe city it was. They have sections in Paris that are radicalized, where the police refuse to go there. They're petrified. The police refuse to go in there. (Pleeeeeaaaassseeee !!!!)


Part of the beauty of me is that I'm very rich.


[Personal Message by Trump, Trump University, $34,995 'Gold Elite' three-day course] Only doers get rich. I know that in these three packed days, you will learn everything to make a million dollars within the next 12 months.


[to an inquiry, as the presumptive Republican candidate in the 2016 election, what he pays in taxes] It's none of your business.


Revealed on Piers Morgan Tonight: Donald Trump (http://akas.imdb.com/title/tt1845071?ref_=nmbio_trv_23) (2011) that he personally shuns the use of alcohol, tobacco, drugs and tattoos. Is pro-military spending. (but yet, he said he will do it with a lot less money)


So tell me again...

WHAT SIGNIFICANT ACHIEVEMENT DOES HE HAS?????

I don't see any philanthropic work done, I don't see any foundation to help poor people, I don't see any narrative, or comment or influence to help combat veterans, I don't see any proactive work to help women (only the ones who flirt with him, as he expect) and the list can go on forever....

So tell me.......I am waiting......waiting.....waiting.....waiting...... waiting......

http://akas.imdb.com/name/nm0874339/?ref_=nv_sr_2

As I said above in post #19: He is just a clown.

And I agree 1,000 % with you....

For the life of me, I still can't understand how, for God's sake, how it is that the american people got so duped with this Payaso......In my times in the service, I traveled frequently and I lived in Germany and other countries....and I always boasted how smart we, as american, were.....(past tense) and now, this clown actions cemented my beliefs that anyone can put horse crap in a clear plastic bag and it can be sold in America as the new Alzheimer cure......

I just can't understand it.....

But reality will hit when they begin to debate......that is going to be the real fun....and as Wolverine said....... Pass me the Popcorn !!!! Because I will be front row watching the show.....!!!!

GOP Senator Jeff Flake dramatically confronts Donald Trump in tense Capitol Hill meeting

Allan Smith,Business Insider 8 hours ago

Donald Trump had an intense, testy exchange with Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona — one of his sharpest Republican critics on Capitol Hill — during a closed-door meeting with GOP senators on Thursday in Washington, DC.


The Washington Post reported (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2016/07/07/trump-meets-with-hill-republicans-as-controversy-over-star-of-david-tweet-continues/) that when the Arizona Republican stood up and introduced himself, Trump said, "You've been very critical of me."
"Yes, I'm the other senator from Arizona — the one who didn't get captured — and I want to talk to you about statements like that," Flake responded, two Republican officials told the Post.


Flake was referring to Trump's comments from roughly one year ago when he questioned whether Sen. John McCain of Arizona was a war hero because he was captured during the Vietnam War. Trump said he preferred people who weren't captured.


According to The Post, Flake told the Manhattan billionaire that he wants to be able to support him but is still uncomfortable doing so.
Trump noted he had yet to start attacking Flake and threatened to start. Flake then urged Trump to stop attacking Mexicans, according to the report.


The presumptive Republican nominee predicted Flake would lose his reelection bid, to which Flake shot back that he's not on the ballot until 2018.


Sources told CNN's Manu Raju (https://twitter.com/mkraju/status/751100423130546177) that Trump also threatened to defeat Flake in an election. Flake declined to elaborate on the exchange when asked by reporters afterward. "No, I'll just leave it," he told reporters, adding that "my position remains. I want to support the nominee. I really do. I just can't support him given the things that he's said." A Flake spokesperson confirmed to Business Insider that the Post account was accurate.


Trump also called out Republican Sens. Mark Kirk of Illinois and Ben Sasse of Nebraska, according to The Post. Kirk recently unendorsed Trump, while Sasse has been fiercely critical of the real-estate magnate. Trump characterized Kirk as a loser. "I guess he lit me up," Kirk later told The Post.



During a recent interview with Business Insider (http://www.businessinsider.com/jeff-flake-donald-trump-muslim-ban-trade-2016-6), Flake said anybody who uttered the protectionist rhetoric on trade that Trump has "is not what I'd call a Republican (http://www.businessinsider.com/jeff-flake-donald-trump-muslim-ban-trade-2016-6)." He also said it's "quite possible (http://www.businessinsider.com/jeff-flake-donald-trump-john-mccain-arizona-2016-6)" Trump could lose in his state of Arizona, a GOP stronghold, and that he thinks Republicans should consider confirming (http://www.businessinsider.com/jeff-flake-supreme-court-merrick-garland-donald-trump-2016-6) Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court in October if it looks like Trump is going to lose the election.


"Mr. Trump's problem is not just being dissatisfied with the status quo," he said. "It's that he's gone out and gone after specific groups and organizations. The Mexican judge comments. The Muslim ban, although he seems to be backing off of that. It's just the general statements on too many groups he's going to need to win an election. So I think he's still got to change quite a bit." He added that "we just don't know" if Trump is capable of change.

"Sometimes he'll walk something back one day and be back with the original policy the next," he said. "So we'll see what holds. He's 70 years old, and it's tough to change. He's made many statements about how he won the primary and why change it. He may, for a time, use more appropriate rhetoric or statements, but I just don't know if that can last. I really don't."


<<< People, take notice,...."if it looks like a dud, walks like a dud and smell like a dud....then....it must be a dud....".........When the people from his own party, truly, really and completely dislike him.....there must be a reason beyond mere loud mouth.....>>>

How'bout this one.....

'One of the worst mistakes' Gingrich, who has served as something of a Trump surrogate in recent months, called it "one of the worst mistakes" the real-estate magnate had made and added that it was "inexcusable."


"First of all, this judge was born in Indiana," Gingrich told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace (http://www.foxnews.com/transcript/2016/06/05/gingrich-on-trump-attacks-on-trump-university-judge-john-podesta-on-clinton/). "He is an American, period. When you come to America, you get to become an American. And Trump, who has grandparents who came to the US, should understand this as much as anybody."

He continued:

Second, to characterize, you know — if a liberal were to attack Justice Clarence Thomas on the grounds that he's black, we would all go crazy. Every conservative would say it was wrong and it was racism. And Trump has got to, I think, move to a new level. This is no longer the primaries. He's no longer an interesting contender. He is now the potential leader of the United States and he's got to move his game up to the level of being a potential leader.


Though he did not answer whether he believed the attack to be racially motivated, Gingrich said he hoped "it was sloppiness" and said Trump's assertion of having "many Mexican friends" was "irrelevant." "This judge is not Mexican," he continued. Trump on Monday called Gingrich's comments "inappropriate."

Or maybe this one.......

'Very disturbing' During a Monday-morning appearance (http://www.msnbc.com/morning-joe/watch/sen-flake-trump-has-reached-a-new-level-699715651839) on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Flake, a vehement critic of Trump, called this latest firestorm "a whole new level" and "very disturbing."


"If this doesn't change, we're in for big trouble," Flake said.
"Because it's not just ill-informed or ignorant statements, but they suggest that once he's president after November, that he should go after that judge," he continued.


Saying Trump is "not his first choice or his 17th choice" for the presidency, he said Trump's pitting of races, genders, and cultures against one another is everything the GOP stands against.


"The whole thing that we Republicans say we're against are identity politics," he said. "That if you're a certain gender or you're a certain race, then you have to vote that way. He's just trying to confirm that stereotype that's completely wrong and it's offensive, and this week it was a whole new level."

During his interview with Tapper, Trump repeatedly denied that his rationale was racist. But he hammered home several times the argument that Curiel's heritage caused him to view the Trump University cases unfairly because Trump was planning on "building a wall" along the US-Mexico border.


"Jake, I'm building a wall," Trump said. "I'm building a wall. I'm trying to keep business out of Mexico. Mexico's fine ... He's of Mexican heritage, and he's very proud of it, as I am of where I come from."


Trump took his argument a step further Sunday. Asked by John Dickerson on CBS' "Face the Nation" (http://www.cbsnews.com/news/donald-trump-its-possible-muslim-judge-would-treat-me-unfairly/) whether he believed a Muslim judge would also treat him unfairly, because of his proposal to bar Muslim immigrants and tourists from entering the country, Trump said "it's possible."

Ahhh...here is the ice on the cake.....

Ryan backs away from Trump's praise for Hussein
By Harper Neidig

Speaker Paul Ryan (http://thehill.com/people/paul-ryan) pushed back on Donald Trump (http://thehill.com/people/donald-trump)’s praise of Saddam Hussein on Tuesday night, calling the late dictator “evil.”

“He was one the 20th century’s most evil people,” Ryan said in an interview with Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File” when asked about Trump's comment from earlier that night. “He was up there. He committed mass genocide against his own people using chemical weapons.”


Shortly before the interview aired, Trump gave a shout out to Saddam Hussein at a Raleigh, N.C.,rally, praising the former Iraqi dictator's anti-terrorism tactics.

(Way to go Trump! Way to go!!)

“Saddam Hussein was a bad guy,” Trump said (http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/286606-trump-gives-saddam-hussain-a-shout-out). “But you know what he did well? He killed terrorists. He did that so good. They didn’t read them the rights, they didn’t talk. They were a terrorist, it was over.” “Today, Iraq is Harvard for terrorism.”

Why some Iraqi's want Saddam back.

"We got rid of Saddam now we have 1000 Saddam's."

I personally never liked that man. However, there are several facts (incredible as it may seems) about him that, unless you dig the info, you won't know much.

The thing about him is that he had certain level of religious tolerance. In Baghdad and all around Iraq, several different religious denominations were living practicing their faith in relative peace. He was so ruthless that he did not tolerated any indication of subversive motives from anyone. Thus he was quite feared. Add then his sons, Uday and Qusay and you are multiplying the fear factors by thousand fold.

Saddam did not liked, and never wanted to be involved, related, or even remotely seen as supporting or befriending Osama bin Laden and he despised Al Qaeda and their underlying terrorists actions.

He was very good friend of Yasser Arafat and Arafat gave Saddam a wooden chair that almost anyone who has been in Baghdad has a picture of (yeah, I have it too since I worked at the Al Faw Palace).

People in Iraq, despite all the crimes committed by this man, were relatively safe and no car bombings were happening.

He just killed anyone and everyone he perceived as a threat to his ruling doctrine, especially if you were a Shia...then certainly something may be happening to you or your family...

So now, people now are clamoring that they preferred when Saddam was in power, because that was an enemy they had an eye on, every day and it was a well defined threat they could measure. Unlike now were the enemy could be anyone unseen and unknown and that unknown force would be and might ten time worse than Saddam...which is exactly what is happening now.

Ok..since I posted so many things about Donald Trump....let me then be fair and post some things about Hillary Clinton....


Hillary identified as a Republican at the age of 13, when she canvassed the South Side of Chicago for Presidential candidate Richard Nixon. She also volunteered for President-hopeful Barry Goldwater in 1964.

She only switched to Democrat in college, during the Civil Rights Movement and the Vietnam War. She also described herself as a “mind conservative and a heart liberal.”

Hillary was a political science major, but she wasn’t always interested in politics. Some of the first things she dreamed of being was a journalist, an astronaut and even a baseball player (she was a Cub’s fan).
As a child in the 1960s, she wrote to NASA, asking how to become an astronaut, but the program told her that they didn’t accept women. Maybe that’s why she decided to take on political issues, to change the rules of astronaut hiring (probably not).
In the early 1990s, Bill was a first-term Governor of Arkansas. He was bringing in $35,000 a year, while Hillary was making $100,000 a year from her law firm salary, and from corporate board fees.
Hillary was accepted to both Yale and Harvard. She chose Yale after a friend introduced her to a Harvard professor, and Hillary told the professor that she was choosing between Harvard and their “nearest competitor.”
The Harvard professor responded by saying that, “First of all, we have no nearest competitor, and secondly, we don’t need any more women.” Suffice to say, Hillary chose Yale Law. The school only accepted 27 women out of 235 students that year.
Despite canvassing for his campaign as a young teen, Hillary was part off the 1974 impeachment inquiry staff in Washington D.C. Her job was to advise the House Committee on Judiciary during the Watergate scandal.

Hillary researched procedures and standards of impeachment (on historical grounds, as this was pretty unprecedented at the time). Her work on the committee helped lead to Nixon’s resignation.
Before being FLOTUS, Hillary had a great career as a lawyer. In both 1988 and 1991, the National Law Journal called her one of the most powerful 100 lawyers in the country. She was also a partner of her firm.
Hillary was subpoenaed for the Whitewater controversy, making her the only First Lady to ever be subpoenaed. The same thing happened again during her civil investigation for Travelgate and Filegate.
Benghazi and the FBI “inquiry”/investigation certainly aren’t helping her case while running for President. She and Bill are the only First Couple to be fingerprinted by the FBI.
Hillary was a contestant on the TV quiz show College Bowl. She ended up winning multiple times.
In 1969, she was shown in Life Magazine after becoming the first student commencement speaker at Wellesley.
Hillary organized a babysitting group while she was a teenager. The group cared for children of Mexican workers in Chicago.

Despite being hugely successful as a lawyer in her later years, she wasn’t always at the top of her class. She worked several menial jobs that helped her grow and get to where she is now.
One of those jobs was working in a canning factory in Alaska during the summer of 1969 (we’re guessing she missed Woodstock). During the summer of 1971, she worked on the subcommittee for Senator Walter Mondale.
In a world that is tough on women, Hillary has gone leaps and bounds over other First Ladies. For instance, she is the only First Lady in US history to have a law degree.

She is also the only First Lady to become a Senator. She is one of three women to ever become Secretary of State (Madeleine Albright and Condaleezza Rice being the others). And as we all know, she might very well be the first female President of the United States.
Besides being the first woman elected to the New York Senate, she has other successes under her belt. She was the first woman to be made a full partner of Rose Law, which is one of the most prestigious law firms in the country.

Friday Wrap-Up: Top 50 Facts About Hillary Clinton From Trump 'StakesOf The Election' Address

Fact 1: Clinton Trade Deals “Are Disastrous”Trump: "This includes fixing all of our many disastrous trade deals — and they are disastrous, they’redestroying our country, because it’s not just the political system that’s rigged, it’s the whole economy.”(Donald Trump, Speech On Hillary Clinton, New York, NY, 6/22/16)“More Than 5 Million U.S. Manufacturing Jobs Were Lost Between 1997 And 2014,” Primarily DueTo “Growing Trade Deficits With Countries That Have Negotiated Trade And Investment DealsWith The United States.” This Is A Loss Of One-Third Of U.S. Manufacturing During The NAFTAChinaEra. “More than 5 million U.S. manufacturing jobs were lost between 1997 and 2014, and most ofthose job losses were due to growing trade deficits with countries that have negotiated trade andinvestment deals with the United States.” (Robert E. Scott, “Fast Track To Lost Jobs And Lower Wages,” Economic Policy Institute’sWorking Economics Blog, 4/13/15) In December 2014, There Were 12,294 Million U.S. Manufacturing Jobs, Down From17,297,000 U.S. Manufacturing Jobs In 1997. (Bureau Of Labor Statistics, Accessed 6/24/16)Since NAFTA Took Effect In January 1994, The U.S. Has Lost 4,570,000 Manufacturing Jobs, A 27Percent Decline.

In addition tothe direct jobs lost, the U.S. trade deficit with the TPP country group eliminated an additional 847,200indirect jobs in supplier industries, including jobs in manufacturing, commodity, and service industries.Finally, wages lost because of direct and indirect job cuts from the trade deficits with the TPP membercountries would have supported an additional 759,700 respending jobs. The direct, indirect, andrespending jobs displaced by the U.S. trade deficit with TPP member countries totals 2,025,800 jobs lost.”(Robert E.

Let's nominate millionairetobe71 for president..he's articulate (large print) and he cares soooo much for our collective benefit that he spends so much time, effort and energy to show us how wrong..how stupid we are..and how correct he is. This powerful love for us puts him on a par with our long lost mommy, Chinagirl.

But MTB71 is not a millionaire yet??
He hates the rich but loves his own dream of being rich? Who cares??!! Just look how impassioned he is to make sure we don't vote incorrectly (in his opinion)He wants to SAVE us!! He feels his posts WILL SAVE us! See how well he presents his case, how deftly he destroys Mr. Trump (who probably doesn't know this worm exists)..surely a person with such impressive research and writing ability could lead us to greatness!! WE BOW TO YOU...WE'RE NOT WORTHY, WE'RE NOT WORTHY!!

Or, how about we call it what it is..simply a loud mouth, big ego chest-beater who's found a podium to express his opinions for free, simply by sitting comfortably in his underwear and typing. Opinions aren't necessarily bad, it's just that polite people don't feel they have to cram theirs down everyone else s throat.

Opinions are like assholes..everybody has one, but to go sniffing, all day, every day on every issue is not healthy, it leads to much unpleasantness in all but the doggy world. As also, to expose/express your own, all day, every day, on every issue is a sign of personality and character issues and can have a chilling effect in more ways than one.

My opinion? Keep yours clean & keep it to yourself.

LOL.....Man....you just made me laugh........ if the provided information I shared is of use to you or to anyone herein to make an educated decision, then by all means...I will thank you for your bow offering.....

Yeap...loud mouth, ego chest-beater....all of that....and so what?........ funny but the "cramming their troat" is exactly what you were doing.... it is that I stood up for what I believe and gave you a little bit of your own medicine...you didn't like that, did you?
When you have one man dividing the entire GOP, completely polarized and racist bigot...yes, I have problems with that man. Big problems. If you or anyone here chooses to ignore that, then you become part of the problem. At the end of the day.....it doesn't matter. Elections day is when everything will matter. Let me tell you something.... if any other candidate would have won the nomination, i.e. Cruz, Bush, Kasich...ANY OTHER.... I would have vote for that person.... I am not a devoted democrat, after all, I spent 20 years in the army, and the military, in a general sense, is viewed as being favoring the republican party. I supported Bush father, I supported McCain, I supported Bush son, and that is where the train stopped for me because it hit me how the GOP could hit a low point by endorsing low quality, sub-par candidates. First with Romney then Trump...wow...

I will not, ever, never, endorse, encourage or support a candidate of the lowest caliber, the lowest morals, the lowest standards, the lowest principles as the ones Donald Trump has repeatedly, clearly demonstrated over and over. I can only compare Trump with some individuals like him..KKK, Aryan Nations, NeoNazis, White Supremacists, and many others of the like....Since is Trump.....HELL NO !!.... Not me, not any of my friends and certainly not any of my family members...And when the inevitable happens, I will be doing the " I-TOLD-YOU-SO !!" Dance...

This is what really matters...

...Also...this is 3 and 5 point letters...I can write it bigger if you want to read it better....

Donald Trump is looking to catch Hillary Clinton in the polls. (Getty)

Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump in the majority of the general election early polling. According to RealClear Politics (http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/us/general_election_trump_vs_clinton_vs_johnson-5949.html), Clinton leads Trump in the latest early polls by an average of 4.1 percentage points. Clinton received additional good news this week when the FBI recommended (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2016/07/05/james-comey-fbi-hillary-clinton/86702072/) to not press charges on her over her use of private email servers for classified information. In light of the Dallas shootings, Trump released a statement (https://www.donaldjtrump.com/press-releases/donald-j.-trump-statement). FiveThirtyEight’s projections (http://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2016-election-forecast/?ex_cid=rrpromo) have Clinton ahead of Trump by 6.4 percentage points and gives her a 78 percent chance of defeating Trump in the fall.

Companies Bail out on GOP Convention After Facing Pressure




Donald Trump has promised to liven up this year's Republican National Convention. But some of America's biggest corporations are bailing on the party.


Apple recently became the latest company to give the GOP's presumptive nominee the cold shoulder; it won't contribute money or products to the Republicans' big shindig in Cleveland this month. HP Inc. is also withholding support, while Microsoft is giving products only, not cash. Beyond the tech industry, Ford, JPMorgan Chase (http://abcnews.go.com/topics/business/banks/jpmorgan-chase.htm) and United Parcel Service have opted to withhold support.

Most of these companies are also taking a pass on donating to the 2016 Democratic convention. In previous election cycles, though, several of them have given Republican organizers more — sometimes far more — in cash or donated products than they have the Democrats, making their pullback from the Republican gathering this year more dramatic.


WHY COMPANIES ARE UNEASY


The reasons aren't completely clear. None of these companies publicly described its decisions as a repudiation of Trump. Several declined to discuss their thinking, while others said their sponsorship plans were decided months before Trump emerged as the front-runner for the GOP nomination.

In many cases, however, their decisions became known after civil rights groups launched a public effort — including billboards, letters and online messages — aimed at persuading companies to withhold support for an event celebrating a candidate who's campaigned with incendiary proposals , racial rhetoric and harsh comments about immigrants and women.


"Of course it's because of Trump," said Larry Sabato, a University of Virginia (http://abcnews.go.com/topics/news/university-of-virginia.htm) political scientist who has studied party conventions for more than 30 years. Business executives, he said, don't want to alienate customers who may be offended by Trump's statements. "Just as candidates don't get votes from people they insult," he said, "corporations don't get business from people they insult."

Even so, Republican convention organizers say their fundraising is going well. More than 100 donors have contributed a total of $57.5 million, or about 90 percent of what's needed, said Emily Lauer of the Cleveland 2016 Host Committee. She declined to provide a list of sponsors. Trump's campaign did not respond to requests for comment.


APPLE AND THE REPUBLICANS


Apple made headlines after Politico reported the tech giant won't support the GOP convention because of Trump's divisive statements. Apple declined to comment on its plans for either convention this year, although Lauer confirmed to The Associated Press that the company isn't a sponsor for the GOP gathering. A spokeswoman for Democratic organizers declined to comment.


Apple CEO Tim Cook has publicly supported diversity and fair treatment of immigrants. Trump, meanwhile, has publicly blasted the company for manufacturing its products abroad and for resisting FBI demands to help unlock an encrypted iPhone used by an extremist killer in San Bernardino, California.


As if to underscore that Apple's dispute is with Trump, but not the GOP, Cook hosted a California fundraiser for House Speaker Paul Ryan and other congressional Republicans last week. Ryan has endorsed Trump, but opposed his call to temporarily ban foreign Muslims from entering the country and criticized a Trump remark as "the textbook definition of a racist comment."


Apple hasn't been a big cash donor to past conventions, although it gave $165,000 in computers and other tech gear for the 2008 GOP gathering and $140,000 worth of products to that year's Democratic event. It also loaned iPhones to organizers of the 2012 Republican convention.

DOWN IN THE VALLEY


Another well-known tech company, Hewlett-Packard, gave a total of $1 million in cash and tech gear for the two previous GOP conventions. While organizers of the 2012 Democratic convention didn't accept corporate cash, HP gave $100,000 to the Democrats' gathering in 2008.


HP has since split into two corporations; neither is donating to either convention this year. Meg Whitman, the chairman of HP Inc. and CEO of spinoff Hewlett Packard Enterprise, has been a prominent Republican fundraiser over the years. But she has called Trump "a dishonest demagogue" and said his nomination would be disastrous for the party.


Not every Silicon Valley company has followed suit. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has criticized Trump's proposal for a wall on the Mexican border to block illegal immigration. But his company said it's providing "financial and other support" to both conventions. Google said it will be the official "livestream provider" of online video from both events.

Microsoft said in April that it's providing tech products to both party conventions this year but will give cash — it hasn't said how much — only to the Democratic event. Microsoft has made hefty donations to past Republican conventions. It gave $815,000 in cash and more than $700,000 in products in 2012, while providing $1.3 million in cash and products to the Republican gathering in 2008.

By contrast, Microsoft has given less support to previous Democratic gatherings. It provided $71,000 in software for the 2012 Democratic convention and $640,000 worth of products in 2008.


ELSEWHERE IN THE FORTUNE 100


Several other companies said they're not supporting either party's event this year. UPS donated more than $400,000 in cash and services to the GOP convention in 2012 and a similar amount to the Republicans in 2008, while providing $125,000 worth of donated services to the Democrats in 2012 and far less in 2008. Spokeswoman Kara Ross said her company decided last year that it wouldn't give to either event in 2016, citing budgetary reasons unrelated to Trump's candidacy.


Similarly, Ford Motor Co. says it decided to sit out both conventions last year, well before Trump emerged as the front-runner. JPMorgan Chase says it decided near the start of 2016 to donate money instead to youth employment programs in this year's host cities. Both companies gave cash to the Republican convention in 2012 and equal amounts to both party gatherings in 2008.


Coca-Cola (http://abcnews.go.com/topics/business/companies/coca-cola.htm) has also reconsidered its support. The soft-drink maker donated $666,000 in cash and another $100,000 worth of beverages to the Republican event in 2012, while donating $70,000 worth of products to the Democrats that year, after giving equal gifts of $150,000 to each party gathering in 2008. It gave $75,000 to each party's host committee in 2015, but said in late March that it won't give any more this year. The company declined to comment further.


Activists had urged Coca-Cola and other companies to withhold support for the GOP convention, citing what they called Trump's "hatred and violent rhetoric."


"We don't run this campaign every four years," said Rashad Robinson, executive director for the activist group Color of Change. "This is a moment where corporations should be saying this is not something they want their brand connected to."

Qualifications, Temperament and Anxiety


Doubts about Trump are reflected in yet-sharper questions about his qualifications for office – perhaps the most basic hurdle for a candidate to clear – and continued widespread anxiety about a potential Trump presidency.

Sixty-four percent of Americans now see Trump as unqualified to serve as president, up 6 points from an already-high 58 percent last month. Thirty-four percent see him as qualified.

Clinton’s numbers are essentially the opposite, and unchanged: Sixty-one percent see her as qualified for the office, 37 percent as not qualified. Moreover, while 33 percent feel strongly that Clinton is not qualified, many more – 56 percent – feel strongly that Trump doesn’t pass this test.

Clinton also continues to surpass Trump easily in views of which candidate has the better personality and temperament to serve effectively. Clinton’s vast 61-28 percent lead on this question is essentially unchanged from last month’s 61-31 percent.

For all this, Clinton is hardly beloved. Fifty percent of Americans say they’re anxious about the idea of her as president (vs. 47 percent who are comfortable with it). When it comes to a Trump presidency, however, anxiety rises to 70 percent, with just 27 percent comfortable with the idea. These are about the same as when last asked in January, and the 70 percent anxiety number matches Trump’s unfavorability rating in an ABC/Post poll last week.

Polls are NOT representative of true public sentiment, and never have been, they are a propaganda tool utilized by the big government elites brainwash the populace into feeling a certain way. The great thing is that people are finally waking up to this fact and tend to be thinking for themselves. Trump being the presumptive nominee is the best possible evidence of this fact. If you like touting polls, go back and see what ALL of those polls had to say about Trump's chances of being the presumptive republican nominee back when there were still 16 or 17 candidates.

Multiple Personality Disordered Hillary Calls For White Hillary To Apologize To Black Hillary Over Dallas

Hillary Clinton pretended that she was black again in order to call out insensitive white people like Hillary Clinton who don’t put themselves in the shoes of black people like Hillary Clinton.

I think she might have multiple personality disorder. Also she’s a race-baiting dullard.

Watch below:

Here’s Clinton’s answer when asked why she’d be able to handle the racial divide in America better than Trump: pic.twitter.com/ERzzvAwLlM

YES!! She called on white people like herself to put themselves in the shoes of African-Americans!! On the day after a “Black Lives Matter” sympathizer murdered 5 policemen and injured many more, Hillary is calling on WHITES to be more sympathetic to blacks. That’s pretty remarkable if you ask me.

She must be feeling black again:

How Hillary Clinton Won Harlem

Hillary Clinton met with civil-rights leaders at the National Urban League yesterday. Photo: Andrew Burton/Getty Images

It’s like watching someone with the hiccups; you don’t really know when they’re going to end. But herein lies the beauty of the goodwill Hillary had built up in the room — the beauty of black people being an expressive bunch: The room started clapping loudly, almost to mask her coughs until she was done, to get her through this stretch. People were acting like it was church, when some member of the congregation gets up to speak but suddenly gets emotional or nervous. Shouts of “Take your time, Hill” and “You’re okay” rang from all corners of the room. After a few coughs, Hillary squeaked out, “I’ve got too much to say,” which was met with laughter. When some of the coughing halted, Hillary softly said a few sentences with her voice at about 10 percent strength, and after every few sentences, people cheered her on. There were even some “HILLARY, HILLARY” chants. I couldn’t believe it.
This was followed by a second wave of coughs, more cheers and supportive messages from the crowd, which ended with Hillary saying, “Thank you, you’re a great amen chorus.” And a few minutes later, her voice was at full strength again. She was back.
This was Hillary’s Flu Game (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4BswHnf0xM). She’d just won Harlem.


Watching a white woman who could be the president of the United States say things like, “For many white Americans, it's tempting to believe that bigotry is largely behind us. That would leave us with a lot less work, wouldn't it?” and “Race still plays a significant role in determining who gets ahead in America and who gets left behind. Now, anyone — anyone asking for your vote has a responsibility to grapple with this reality” is uncharted waters.


It’s a speech that, if President Obama had given it, would have gotten him reamed out for showing favoritism — for not being the American president but just “the black president.” If a different version of Hillary Clinton had shown up, it would have come off as pandering to black people. But that afternoon in the Schomburg, things clicked in a way they really hadn’t before. She wasn’t any less of an Establishment white politician than she was before, but you could tell that she’s coming to terms with the reality that if she wants to actually connect in a way that many people believe she can’t, she’s got to understand and own up to everything and, through both humility and intelligence, prove that she’s ready to push forward.

Trump’s baffled: ‘Why am I not doing better in the polls?’

07/01/16 12:50 PM—Updated 07/01/16 02:07 PM

By Steve Benen
(http://www.msnbc.com/byline/steve-benen)
Last weekend, Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s campaign chairman, appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” and expressed nothing but confidence (http://www.nbcnews.com/meet-the-press/meet-press-june-26-2016-n599196) about the state of the race. Chuck Todd noted recent polling showing Hillary Clinton leading and asked Manafort whether he’d concede that his candidate was trailing. “No,” he replied, adding, “[W]e’re confident that we are not behind the Clinton campaign.”

Obviously, the polling evidence is readily accessible (http://elections.huffingtonpost.com/pollster/2016-general-election-trump-vs-clinton), but more to the point, Manafort doesn’t appear to have convinced his boss. Politico had this report (http://www.politico.com/story/2016/06/trump-polls-performance-224982) yesterday on Trump’s appearance on Mike Gallagher’s conservative talk-radio show.


“Well, you know, I really feel it, Mike. I go to Ohio, we were there two days ago, and Pennsylvania and near Pittsburgh and we – I was in West Virginia, the crowds are massive. And you know, I walked out of one, and I said, ‘I don’t see how I’m not leading,’” Trump said, invoking the size of his crowds.

“We have thousands of people standing outside trying to get in, and they’re great people and they have such spirit for the country and love for the country, and I’m saying, you know, ‘Why am I not doing better in the polls?’”


First, the fact that Trump is even asking the question is notable, given the campaign’s pretense that Trump is doing just fine in the polls. “I don’t see how I’m not leading” is the sort of thing a candidate says when he knows that he’s … not leading.


Second, and more important, is the fact that the first-time candidate doesn’t seem to understand the difference between having fans show up at public events and actually winning at the national and statewide level. Bernie Sanders also saw “massive” crowds, and as impressive as that was, the senator still came up short in the race for the Democratic nomination.

Every major presidential candidate can draw an audience. That doesn’t mean he or she is going to win.

That said, these comments from Trump aren’t just amateurish, they also shed light on why he assumes the polls are wrong. In the Republican’s mind, if the surveys were correct, he wouldn’t have thousands of people showing up to cheer him. That doesn’t actually make any sense, but from his perspective, it’s easier to believe “crowds = victory” than to accept polls showing him trailing.

undue importance to them, and Trump simply points out that they're meaningless.

LOL.....40P and Wolverine....Hey men... I have always respected your posts....and just because we disagree in terms of who is the most qualified presidential candidate, I won't make this issue a personal attack because of the respect I have for both of you.

Within those parameters of respect I will keep formulating and I will keep challenging your views and those of Wolverine. No mind control here, no mindfreak telepathic gamma rays hypnotic control going on here....simply facts.

I have said from the beginning that I don't endorse and I don't support neither candidate. However, it is very clear to me, that there is one man dividing a party that I became to love, and there is another candidate that has a party pretty much united.

It really makes me go....Humm...! ...... See, I am the kind of person who don't support a party just because this one is democrat and that one is republican.... I use deep common sense and common sense and researching the prospect candidate lead me to believe that Donald Trump is NOT the proper candidate. He is not qualified, he has done so much damage that the entire GOP is divided and he has earned so much distrust and anger among his peers, the minority groups and the women sector that is not even funny to watch.

There is no media crap influence, there is no bias involved here either. Simply the facts.

EVERY CANDIDATE LIES....EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM.

Donald Trump has his minions and Yes Sir! men and women around him who would say Yes! to any little question and if Donald Trump ask Jump!...they all say at the same time....How High Sir?....or How Far Down Sir?.....Or Sir, Feet First or Head First?....

That Trump speaks the truth??? Bro, I don't know what you have been drinking or smoking...but you better stop it because soon you will begin to see Donald Trump galloping on Unicorns and you will be swearing he is flying by you house to give you a ride to the National Convention.

There is a big difference between speaking your mind and being a racist and bigot. And he has shown that personality over and over and over.

Donald Trump has not shown ANY type of indication that he has the proper qualifications to be the next president of this great nation. Nothing, nada, zero, zip.....And what he could show?....you can't simply produce what you simply don't have. It is very black or white, nothing in between.

Should he had any slight indication of being a candidate who makes me perceive that he has the well being of the american people in his mind, the things may have been different. But he hasn't and it is too late for him to take back all he has done and said.

He won anyways. After this elections are over, which I am sure he will lose, because it is so obvious, he will become a whole lot more richer than he was a year ago. That is just simply business at the office like any other day at the Trump Plaza. It is that his office won't be the Oval Office. Mark my words on that one.

Who Are Donald Trump's Supporters, Really?

Four theories to explain the front-runner’s rise to the top of the polls.



Who are the 49 percent?


Donald Trump is now the presumptive frontrunner for the GOP nomination, attracting nearly half of Republican support, in the latest national poll (http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/us/2016_republican_presidential_nomination-3823.html). The peculiar allure of the Trump Brand has been documented, mocked, admired, and mourned. But what about his consumer base. Who’s buying this stuff?


The first story about the typical Trump buyer was simple: These were poorly informed voters, swept up by a modern circus act orchestrated by a mass-media-age P. T. Barnum with arguably worse hair (http://By%20a%20modern-age%20P.%20T.%20Barnum%20with%20arguably%20worse%2 0hair.). But Trump’s appeal has proven to be more than a passing fad.


The second Trump-voter story focused on the typical demographic breakdowns: gender, race, and age. Back in December, a Washington Post analysis (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2015/12/15/who-really-supports-donald-trump-ted-cruz-ben-carson-marco-rubio-and-jeb-bush-in-5-charts/) found that Trump's support skewed male, white, and poor. The male-female gap was 19 percentage points (47 percent support among men vs. 28 percent among women). He won a whopping 50 percent of voters making less than $50,000, 18 percentage points ahead of his support with those who earned more than that amount.


But now that Trump has several caucus and primary wins under his belt, analysts have a better sense of who’s actually turning out to vote for him. Here are four features of Trump's constituency:



They Didn’t Go to College

The single best predictor of Trump support in the GOP primary is the absence of a college degree. In an analysis of Trump's blowout win in New Hampshire, Evan Soltas determined (http://esoltas.blogspot.com/2016/02/who-is-voting-for-trump.html) that the factor explaining most of the variance in Trump's support in New Hampshire was education.

“For every 1 percentage point more college graduates over the age of 25, Donald Trump's share of votes falls by 0.65 percentage points,” he said.

Diplomas are what Ron Brownstein calls (http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/01/the-new-republican-fault-line/436671/) the “new Republican fault line.” In 2012, Mitt Romney struggled for months to consolidate support because, even as he had clear support among college-educated Republicans, he fared worse among non-college voters.

Although white men without a college education haven’t suffered the same historical discrimination as blacks or women, their suffering is not imagined. The Hamilton Project (http://www.hamiltonproject.org/assets/legacy/files/downloads_and_links/Employment_Earnings_Occupations_Changes_1990-2013_FINAL_1.pdf) has found that the full-time, full-year employment rate of men without a bachelor's degree fell from 76 percent in 1990 to 68 percent in 2013. While real wages have grown for men and women with a four-year degree or better in the last 25 years, they've fallen meaningfully for non-college men.

They Don't Think They Have a Political Voice

If there were one question to identify a Trump supporter if you knew nothing else about him, what might it be? “Are you a middle-aged white man who hasn’t graduated from college?” might be a good one. But according to a survey from RAND Corporation (http://www.rand.org/blog/2016/01/rand-kicks-off-2016-presidential-election-panel-survey.html), there is one that’s even better: Do you feel voiceless?


RAND tested several queries to clearly divide Trump’s support from his rivals. For example, they found that Trump crushes Ted Cruz among voters who both strongly believe that “immigrants threaten American customs and values" and among voters who "strongly favor" raising taxes on the richest American households. But voters who agreed with the statement “people like me don't have any say about what the government does” were 86.5 percent more likely to prefer Trump. This feeling of powerlessness and voicelessness was a much better predictor of Trump support than age, race, college attainment, income, attitudes towards Muslims, illegal immigrants, or Hispanic identity.



They Want to Wage an Interior War Against Outsiders

Matthew MacWilliams, a PhD candidate in political science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, studies political authoritarianism.
The classic definition of authoritarianism implies a tradeoff—more security for less liberty—but MacWilliams says it’s also about identifying threatening outsiders and granting individuals special powers to pursue aggressive policies to destroy them. The best predictor of Trump support isn't income, education, or age, he says. In South Carolina, it was “authoritarianism (http://www.vox.com/2016/2/23/11099644/trump-support-authoritarianism) … [and] a personal fear of terrorism” that best predicted Trump’s support across the state.

Trump’s foreign policy, like his policy for anything, is a muddle. He’s cautious toward the Israel-Palestine conflict, yet he told Fox News he would kill the families of ISIS members to stop their advance, something awfully close to a public pledge to commit war-crimes.
But it’s his domestic security policies that have been astonishingly hawkish. He’s promised to shut down mosques, keep a database of Muslims, and round up the children of illegal immigrants. Indeed, when you put it together, Trump’s hysterical promises to protect his white in-group from non-white outsiders looks like race-baiting...



They Live in Parts of the Country With Racial Resentment

Find a map of the United States and draw a thick red mark just east of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers. That's Trump Country.

Although Trump appears to run equally well among moderates and conservatives in polls, Soltas found that, in New Hampshire, he dominated in more moderate counties. “For every 1 percentage point more liberal the precinct, Donald Trump's share of votes rises by 0.48 percentage points,” Soltas found (http://esoltas.blogspot.com/2016/02/who-is-voting-for-trump.html).


According to the New York Times’ Nate Cohn, who used data from Civis Analytics (https://civisanalytics.com/), Trump’s support is strongest from the Gulf Coast, through the Appalachian Mountains, to New York, among marginally attached Republicans (possibly former Democrats). It is a familiar map for some demographers, since it’s similar to a heat map of Google searches for racial slurs and jokes. “That Mr. Trump’s support is strong in similar areas does not prove that most or even many of his supporters are motivated by racial animus,” Cohn writes (http://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/31/upshot/donald-trumps-strongest-supporters-a-certain-kind-of-democrat.html). “But it is consistent with the possibility that at least some are.”



If there were one question to identify a Trump supporter if you knew nothing else about him, what might it be? “Are you a middle-aged white man who hasn’t graduated from college?” might be a good one. But according to a survey from RAND Corporation (http://www.rand.org/blog/2016/01/rand-kicks-off-2016-presidential-election-panel-survey.html), there is one that’s even better: Do you feel voiceless?

Why Trump Won't Win The demographics do not look good for him in a general election campaign.


Shortly after Donald J. Trump announced for president, I published a blog post on these pages entitled “No Filter and No Chance (http://www.usnews.com/opinion/blogs/peter-fenn/2015/07/20/donald-trump-has-no-filter-and-no-chance-in-2016).” This was followed by a number of pieces lamenting the surprising lack of substance evident in his campaign, the out of control ego and the sad descent into outrageous, violent, racist, sexist comments repeated with abandon. I, like many others, had predicted his downfall. Hmm, brilliant, right?



But now it is more clear than ever that Trump has all the makings of a George Wallace candidacy, only with less experience in government.


So how could this nasty, vitriolic blowhard become president of the United States?



According to Stephen Moore, the conservative writer, here is how he does it (http://www.realclearpolitics.com/2016/03/21/trump039s_new_coalition_of_voters_who_put_america_ first_378692.html): “Trump is remaking the GOP into a populist/reform party of working class/evangelical and entrepreneurial class voters.” And Pat Buchanan writes (http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2016/03/18/suicide_of_the_republican_party--or_rebirth_130024.html): “A Trump campaign across the industrial Midwest, Pennsylvania and New Jersey featuring attacks on Hillary Clinton’s support for NAFTA the WTO, MFN for China – and her backing of amnesty and citizenship for illegal immigrants, and for the Iraq and Libyan debacles – is a winning hand.”



Thus, the bottom line for the Trump trumpeters is that he mobilizes large numbers of new voters who are angry and fed up with Washington, pulls in the Reagan working-class Democrats and independents, and carries states that have voted Democratic over the last 25 years.


There are several problems with this analysis.



First and foremost, Trump is not a candidate who is appealing to the majority of Americans – 67 percent can't see themselves (https://www.scribd.com/doc/303302086/16139-NBC-WSJ-March-Poll-Release?secret_password=4XllUeaGUCBpOaaXhC7Z) voting for him in November, according to a March NBC/WSJ poll. He has a 25 percent positive rating and a 64 percent negative rating and is trailing Hillary Clinton by 13 points and Bernie Sanders by 18. (This was before the Clinton sweep of five primary states on March 15.)




Furthermore, 43 percent of Republicans believe he will be harmful to their party; 27 percent of all voters feel Trump’s version of change for the country would be right and a full 52 percent believe it would be wrong.



And even before most of the violence at the Trump rallies and the latest Trump rhetoric, 50 percent believe “Trump’s comments are frequently insulting and he has the wrong approach to the issues.” Only 18 percent believe Trump “tells it like it is and has the right approach on many issues.”



My guess is that these numbers are not going to get better as the campaign progresses but will only get worse for Trump. This is not a zebra who will change his stripes – if anything, the numbers will become more pronounced. Can you imagine the recording of Trump from Howard Stern's radio show turned into political advertisements? More and more examples of his inconsistencies and outright falsehoods? His complete and total lack of knowledge about policy and failure to articulate issue positions?



He is also outright dangerous. Is this the person Americans want two feet from the nuclear codes?


Many of Trump’s supporters are arguing that he will bring to the polls millions of new voters – basically angry white males. Data on this is very sketchy given where we are in the primaries. There has not been a huge surge in voter registration beyond normal numbers and there is some evidence that turnout models may, in fact, hurt Trump and the Republicans, as Robert Schlesinger argues so persuasively (http://www.usnews.com/news/the-report/articles/2016-03-18/whites-arent-the-only-voters-donald-trump-will-turn-out) in this space.


Here is a run-down of Trump’s problems:






Hispanics: Washington Post polling shows 80 percent have an unfavorable opinion of Donald Trump. Romney got 27 percent of the Hispanic vote, Trump will be lucky to reach the upper teens. According to Pew, 48 percent of Hispanics voted in 2012 (http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2013/05/08/six-take-aways-from-the-census-bureaus-voting-report/) and more than 1.4 million new registrations have been recorded since 2008. Clearly, the number of Hispanic voters will only continue to grow. You better believe that turnout in 2016 will be closer to the mid-60 range for whites and blacks, not the upper 40s of the past.



African-Americans: It may be difficult to match the Obama numbers but given Trump’s treatment of blacks at his rallies and his talk of “political correctness,” it will be close.



Women: Of course, women will be a majority of the electorate in 2016. Trump’s problems with them, I believe, are just beginning. The more women see of him, hear of his past statements, view the treatment of Fox News' Megyn Kelly and others, the more they will be turned off by his antics. Never mind his position on issues affecting women, which will be highlighted and are of grave concern.



Millennials and younger voters: Sen. Bernie Sanders may have excited them, but it is hard to believe they will sit on their hands if Trump is the nominee against Hillary Clinton. Voters in this age group are growing fast and flexing their political muscle.



Educated voters: This is a serious problem for Trump. Turnout for people with advanced degrees is over 80 percent: about 75 percent for those with bachelors degrees, 64 percent for those with some college, a bit over 50 percent for those who are high school grads and less than 40 percent for those without a high school degree. Trump’s strength right now is with less-educated voters. The big question is: Can he put together an organization that produces a sea change in registering and bringing to the polls the less educated, non-voters?

There's not much evidence yet that he can.




Finally, as we all know, the electorate is more diverse with each passing year. Close to 30 percent of 2016 voters will be non-white. Given the failure of the Republican Party, and particularly Donald Trump, to appeal to those voters, this is a serious problem. The current and future demographics do not bode well for a Trump or any other candidate who fails to appeal to all of America.



It is still possible that Trump will not be the nominee, but most Republicans who are worried about their party are looking right now at a train wreck come November. And maybe for years down the tracks. Unless things change, 2016 could make the Johnson-Goldwater election of 1964 look like a nail biter.

A Full List of Donald Trump's Rapidly Changing Policy Positions

by Jane C. Timm

It is difficult to glean a platform from Donald Trump's powerfully incoherent (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2015/09/22/donald-trump-and-the-power-of-incoherence/) rhetoric.

The presumptive Republican nominee changes his mind so often that this comprehensive listing of his past and present policy views must sometimes be updated multiple times a day (like the day when he offered up three different views on abortion in the eight hours after this story was first published). Add that to the quicksand-like task of separating fact from Trump's many exaggerations and outright falsehoods in hundreds of interviews, and his routine refusal to offer specifics — he says unpredictability is an advantage he'll use to cut better deals — and you've got one of the most elusive policy platforms in history.

His fluid views aren't just confusing for reporters, they're also a source of consternation for his party — more than a few of his current policies directly contradict the GOP platform. Consider the debt flip: a desire to rapidly pay down the national debt is one of the only issues the divided Republican Party can agree on, but its presumptive nominee has made a bold argument for prioritizing infrastructure investment over the debt. In the following months, he offered up additional views.

"You have to have a certain degree of flexibility," the presumptive Republican nominee said in a March debate when confronted on his evolving policy platform, taking a stance on immigration he'd reverse hours later. "You can't say, it's OK, and then you find out it's not OK and you don't want to do anything. You have to be flexible, because you learn."

In order to better understand what the presumptive GOP nominee believes today — and yesterday — this list offers a look at the billionaire real estate mogul's views since he announced his candidacy a year ago, along with any explanation the candidate has offered on the changes.

Trump (Cont) PROPOSED MUSLIM BAN

1. No Muslims should be allowed to enter the United States —as immigrants or visitors.
Donald Trump called for "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States" in a statement about "preventing Muslim immigration" in December.


2. Ban Muslims from entering but make an exception for friends and Muslims serving in the US military.

He later amended his stance in an interview with Fox News, saying the 5,000 Muslims serving the United States military would be exempt from the ban and allowed to return home from overseas deployments. He also suggested that current Muslim residents — like his "many Muslim friends" — would be exempt, too, and able to come and go freely.


3. The Muslim ban was just an suggestion.

"We have a serious problem, and it's a temporary ban - it hasn't been called for yet, nobody's done it, this is just a suggestion until we find out what's going on," Trump said on in mid-May, softening for the first time in months on the ban.


4. Ban Muslims as a matter of policy, as well as people from countries with a history of terrorism.

In a national security address after the terror attack in Orlando, Trump said that if he's elected he would "suspend immigration from areas of the world where there's a proven history of terrorism against the United States, Europe or our allies until we fully understand how to end these threats."


5. Ban people from countries with a history of terrorism.

When a reporter asked Trump how he'd feel about a Muslim Scot entering the U.S. while on a trip to visit his golf courses in Scotland, Trump said it "wouldn't bother me." He then went on to emphasize that he did not want "people coming in from the terror countries." When asked, Trump would not name one such country.

6. Ban Muslims from countries with a history of terrorism, and potentially also other Muslims.

That same day, when pressed about how this statement in Scotland jived with Trump's proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the country, spokesman Hope Hicks said that the ban would just apply to Muslims from countries with a history of terrorism. She would not, however, confirm that Muslims residing in peaceful countries would be exempt. NBC News has asked for further clarification.


7. This was never about Muslims.

The next week, one spokesperson wrongly said the initial ban was not about Muslims.

"I know the news media has been reporting that the initial ban was against all Muslims, and that simply was not the case. It's simply for Muslim immigration, and Mr. Trump is adding specifics to clarify what his position is," Katrina Pierson told CNN, though advisers at the time said it was indeed about religion (https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/dec/07/donald-trump-campaign-defends-muslim-ban-sam-clovis-interview) exclusively.


8. Nothing has changed, nothing to see here.

"This is not accurate," spokesperson Hope Hicks said when asked if the policies were changing and removing the word "Muslim." "There has been no change from the exchanges over the weekend."


Current position:Ban Muslims from entering the country, with potential exceptions that the campaign has not clearly articulated or acknowledged.

Trump (Cont) IMMIGRATION



1. Build a wall, deport all undocumented immigrants.

At the core of Donald Trump's campaign is a promise to build a wall across the United States' southern border (https://www.donaldjtrump.com/positions/immigration-reform) and deport the country's 11 million undocumented immigrants with the help of a "deportation force."


2. Deport all undocumented immigrants but bring the 'good' ones back legally. Dreamers can maybe stay.

In a CNN interview in July (http://www.cnn.com/2015/07/29/politics/donald-trump-immigration-plan-healthcare-flip-flop/index.html), Trump said, "I want to move them out, and we're going to move them back in and let them be legal, but they have to be in here legally."

Trump wavered on what to do with the Dreamers - young undocumented immigrants who were brought to this country by their parents as children and are now afforded limited protection from deportation but no path to citizenship. When asked if Dreamers would have to go back, he said, "It depends."


3. Dreamers cannot stay.


In August, that ambiguity was gone: "They have to go," he said on "Meet the Press."

4. Trump might be flexible on actually deporting 11 million undocumented immigrants.


BuzzFeed reports (http://www.buzzfeed.com/bensmith/trump-tape#.yijv28pE0X) that in off-the-record talks with the New York Times, Trump admitted this was just bluster and a starting point for negotiations, saying he might not deport the undocumented immigrants as he's promised. Trump has refused calls to release the transcript, despite furious requests from his rival candidates.

6. Deport undocumented immigrants, but don't call it "mass deportations."


"President Obama has mass deported vast numbers of people -- the most ever, and it's never reported. I think people are going to find that I have not only the best policies, but I will have the biggest heart of anybody," Trump told Bloomberg News when pressed about his immigration policies.
When asked more about how he'd characterize the deportations at the center of his immigration policy, Trump said he "would not call it mass deportations."


Current position: Deport millions, but don't call it "mass deportations."

GUNS



1. Get rid of gun-free zones

In a speech at the National Rifle Association convention on May 20, where Trump was endorsed by the country's most powerful gun group, Trump promised again to do away with gun-free zones, which include schools and military bases. At a campaign stop in Vermont, he had previously vowed to get rid of gun-free zones on his "first day."


2. No guns in classrooms, except maybe some guns in classrooms.

In an interview (https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-clinton-guns-classrooms-nra-000000113.html) on May 22, the presumptive nominee advocated against, and then for, and then against, and then for guns in classrooms.
"I don't want to have guns in classrooms, although in some cases, teachers should have guns in classrooms, frankly," Trump said, offering up two distinct views in an interview days after he was endorsed the NRA. "Because teachers, you know — things that are going on in our schools are unbelievable."


3. I'm not advocating for guns in classrooms, but wait, yes I am.

Trump walked back his view that teachers should have guns a second later, then reiterated that some teachers should have guns.

"I'm not advocating guns in classrooms," he continued. "But remember, in some cases … trained teachers should be able to have guns in classrooms."


4. Let's put trained gunmen in schools.

Forty-eight hours later, Trump sought to clarify his muddled remarks, saying he wanted "school resource officers" to have guns in schools while slamming rival Hillary Clinton's criticism of his stance.
"The way she said it meant like every student should be sitting there carrying guns," Trump said on CNN on May 24 (http://www.cnn.com/2016/05/23/politics/donald-trump-guns/index.html?wpmm=1&wpisrc=nl_daily202). "If trained people had guns, you wouldn't have the carnage that you've had."


5. We should only get rid of some gun-free zones.

While he decried gun-free zones as "offering up candy to bad people," he backed away from axing all of them, telling CNN in the May 24 interview that they would only be eliminated "in some cases."


6. More guns would save lives.

Trump has repeatedly said that he wished there were other armed individuals present during terror attacks to fight back.
"I think it would've been a lot better if they had guns in that room, somebody could protect," Trump said after the San Bernardino shooting in December. "They could've protected themselves if they had guns."
In the wake of the deadly shooting in Orlando, Florida at a gay nightclub in June, Trump reiterated this view.
"It's too bad that some of the young people that were killed over the weekend didn't have guns, you know, attached to their hips, frankly, and you know where bullets could have flown in the opposite direction," he said on the "Howie Carr Show" on June 13, one day after the attack. "It would have been a much different deal. I mean, it sounded like there were no guns. They had a security guard. Other than that there were no guns in the room. Had people been able to fire back, it would have been a much different outcome."
(Despite Trump's assertions, there was an armed guard at the club who tried to stop the gunman, but he was unable to do so.)
At a rally in Atlanta on June 15, Trump declared that the outcome would have been different if "some of those great people that were in that club that night had guns strapped to their waist or strapped to their ankle."
7. I didn't actually mean arming clubgoers.

After he spent a week advocating for arming more of the victims (who were predominantly clubgoers, in addition to several club employees), Trump tweeted on June 20 that he didn't mean he wanted to arm clubgoers. Trump changed his stance just hours after the National Rifle Association pushed back against the idea of allowing people to bring weapons into nightclubs.
"I was obviously talking about additional guards or employees," Trump tweeted (https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/744838252369043456).


Current position: More guns are better, though the details are murky and evolving on how many gun-free zones would be abolished.

2011 INTERVENTION IN LIBYA

1. The intervention in Libya by the U.S.-led coalition was a terrible idea.

Asked in October 2015 if he felt the Middle East would be more stable with Libyan dictator Muammar Gadhafi and Iraq's authoritarian leader Saddam Hussein still in power, Trump told NBC News' Chuck Todd, "Of course it would be. You wouldn't have had your Benghazi situation, which is one thing which was just a terrible situation…But of course, it would. Libya is — is not even — nobody even knows what's goin' on over there. It's not even a country anymore."
A few weeks later, he was pressed again on CNN to say whether he felt the two leaders of brutal regimes should have been left in power.
"100 percent," Trump said. "I mean, look at Libya. Look at Iraq. Iraq used to be no terrorists. [Hussein] would kill the terrorists immediately, which is like now it's the Harvard of terrorism."
He continued: "If you look at Iraq from years ago, I'm not saying he was a nice guy, he was a horrible guy, but it was a lot better than it is right now. Right now, Iraq is a training ground for terrorists. Right now, Libya, nobody even knows Libya - frankly, there is no Iraq and there is no Libya. It's all broken up. They have no control. Nobody knows what's going on."


2. I've never offered a different opinion on Libya.

When then-rival Sen. Ted Cruz brought up Trump's 2011 support for the intervention, which Trump offered at the time via a video blog, during a February debate, Trump denied having ever supported Gadhafi's ouster.
"He said I was in favor in Libya," he said. "I never discussed that subject. I was in favor of Libya? We would be so much better off if Gadhafi would be in charge right now."

3. I guess I did support an intervention.

When CBS actually played the video of Trump discussing the subject — and supporting an intervention — in front of Trump in early June 2016, the presumptive nominee changed his mind and acknowledged the past video.
"That's a big difference from what we're talking about," Trump said. "I was for something, but I wasn't for what we have right now."

4. I wanted a surgical intervention, not a "strong" intervention.

When pressed during the CBS interview, Trump said he was for "surgical" intervention, not a "strong intervention."
"I didn't mind surgical. And I said surgical. You do a surgical shot, and you take him out. But I wasn't for what happened. Look at the way - I mean, look at with Benghazi and with all of the problems that we've had. It was handled horribly," he said.
"I think since then you've said you were never for intervention, so it's confusing," CBS's John Dickerson countered.
"I was never for strong intervention. I could have seen surgical where you take out Gadhafi and his group," Trump responded.

Current position: As Trump put it, "I was for something, but I wasn't for what we have right now."




JAPAN AND NUKES
1. Japan should have nuclear weapons.

In March, Trump said the U.S. should reconsider its policy of not allowing Japan to have nuclear weapons. He reiterated that view in April.
"It's not like, gee whiz, nobody has them. So, North Korea has nukes. Japan has a problem with that. I mean, they have a big problem with that. Maybe they would in fact be better off if they defend themselves from North Korea," Trump said on Fox News in April (http://www.foxnews.com/transcript/2016/04/03/donald-trump-fights-to-win-over-women-reince-priebus-on-possibility-contested/).
Host Chris Wallace followed up, asking, "With nukes?"
"Including with nukes, yes, including with nukes," Trump said.

2. I never said that!

But at a Sacramento rally in June, Trump accused Clinton of lying when she repeated his view as an example of his unfitness when it comes to matters of national security.
Clinton "made a speech, she's making another one tomorrow, and they sent me a copy of the speech. And it was such lies about my foreign policy, that they said I want Japan to get nuclear weapons. Give me a break," Trump said. "See they don't say it: I want Japan and Germany and Saudi Arabia and South Korea and many of the NATO states, nations, they owe us tremendously, we're taking care of all those people and what I want them to do is pay up."


Current position: It's unclear whether Trump would reverse U.S. policy to allow Japan to have nuclear weapons, but it's clear Trump doesn't like being reminded of positions he took eight weeks ago.

CLIMATE CHANGE


1. I don't believe in it.

"I don't believe in climate change," he told CNN in September (http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2015/09/24/donald-trump-i-dont-believe-in-climate-change/)after a long history of calling it both a hoax and a Chinese invention to undermine U.S. business interests. In May 2016, he vowed to "renegotiate … at a minimum" the Paris climate agreement, one of the Obama administration's landmark achievements.


2. Global warming is threatening one of my golf courses.

A statement of environmental impact filed by the Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Ireland, owned by the presumptive Republican nominee, cited rising sea levels and extreme weather due to global warming as the reason the company needed to build a seawall to protect its coastal resort, Politico reported Monday. (http://www.politico.eu/article/donald-trump-acknowledges-climate-change-at-his-irish-golf-course/) The sea wall is necessary protect the course from "global warming and its effects."

Current position: Global warming isn't real, unless it's threatening a Trump property.

TAXING THE WEALTHY



1. The wealthy should pay more.

"I would take carried interest out, and I would let people making hundreds of millions of dollars a year pay some tax, because right now they are paying very little tax and I think it's outrageous," Trump told Bloomberg last August, (http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2015-08-26/donald-trump-says-he-wants-to-raise-taxes-on-himself) noting that he'd be OK paying more taxes. "I want to lower taxes for the middle class."


2. Cut taxes for the wealthy big time.

But in September, he released a plan that silenced anti-tax critics with a proposal that slashed taxes for the wealthy, big time. A whopping 67 percent of the overall cost of his individual tax cuts would go to the top 20 percent of earners, while 35 percent of it would go to the top 1 percent, according to the Tax Policy Center's analysis.

It's unclear how Trump would pay for such drastic cuts —estimated to add $10 trillion to the national debt and deficit over a decade (more on Trump's flip-flopping position on paying off the national debt below) — but Trump insisted he could do it by offering the vague promise of striking better deals and cutting government waste.


3. People like me should pay more.

Trump was asked again in April during a "TODAY" town hall if he believed in raising taxes on the wealthy. Despite the big tax cuts for the wealthy outlined in his own tax plan, he said:

"I do, I do, including myself. I do."

In a series of interviews in early May, he claimed that his tax proposal was a starting point for negotiations and the taxes on the rich would go up.

On Sunday, May 8, Trump told ABC that taxes on the wealthy would "go up a little bit" in negotiations and that, as a wealthy person himself, he is personally OK with higher taxes. "I am willing to pay more. And you know what? Wealthy are willing to pay more. We've had a very good run," he said.

He told NBC's Chuck Todd something similar: It's all negotiable.

"Under my proposal, it's the biggest tax cut by far, of any candidate by far. But I'm not under the illusion that that's going to pass. They're going to come to me. They're going to want to raise it for the rich. Frankly, they're going to want to raise it for the rich more than anybody else," Trump said. "But the middle class has to be protected. The rich is probably going to end up paying more. And business might have to pay a little bit more. But we're giving a massive business tax cut."

Pressed on that last, confusing point - that business might pay more but also get a tax cut - Trump said he meant more than his existing proposal: "Excuse me. I said they might have to pay a little bit more than my proposal."

He didn't offer such a qualification for the wealthy until the next day.


4. I never said that! Cut everyone's taxes!

On Monday, May 9, he went on CNN to refute what he'd said the day before.

"I said that I may have to increase on the wealthy — I'm not going to allow it to be increased on the middle class — now, if I increase it on the wealthy, that means they're still going to be paying less than they're paying now. I'm not increasing it from this point, I'm talking about increasing from my tax proposal," Trump told CNN, insisting that overall there would be a tax decrease for the rich and middle class alike.

Current position: Tax cuts for everyone.

THIS IS IT!! WE GOT THE DATES FOR DEBATES!!!


Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will participate in three general election debates from September through October, according to the schedule released Thursday by the nonpartisan organization that sponsors the debates.


The Commission on Presidential Debates (http://www.cbsnews.com/news/is-it-time-to-shake-up-the-presidential-debates/) (CPD) announced the first debate will take place on Sept. 26, 2016 at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, while the second and third debates will occur on Oct. 9, 2016 at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, and Oct. 19, 2016 at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada. Though each debate will run from 9-10:30 p.m. E.T. without commercial breaks, debates will also be divided into different time segments lasting 10-15 minutes. This format builds upon the 2012 debates where longer segments allowed candidates to get through the specifics of their policy proposals.

WOW !! This man (Trump) is so awful, that even his Alma Matter College rejects him and disavow him

(CNN)Students at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Finance have penned a scathing, open letter (https://medium.com/@whartonopenletter/you-do-not-represent-us-an-open-letter-to-donald-trump-94cf73ce11d8#.u7tbimib6)to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, claiming the business mogul-turned-politician does not represent them.



Trump regularly reminds the public he attended Wharton, and often credits the school for his business knowledge. However, on Friday over 1,400 current Wharton students and alumni expressed their disdain for Trump, saying they were "deeply disappointed" by his candidacy.

"We, proud students, alumni, and faculty of Wharton, are outraged that an affiliation with our school is being used to legitimize prejudice and intolerance," the letter read. "Although we do not aim to make any political endorsements with this letter, we do express our unequivocal stance against the xenophobia, sexism, racism, and other forms of bigotry that you have actively and implicitly endorsed in your campaign."

Huffington Post first reported (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-wharton-school_us_57826326e4b0c590f7e9c072?) on the letter.


Trump earned his undergraduate degree from the Wharton School in 1968, after transferring from Fordham University, where he spent two years studying.


Hey, I have been mentioning this for a while, but, now, the words doesn't come from me, it comes from the very same school this bigot graduated from !!!

Ok Folks......here is something interesting......

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Doubles Down on Donald Trump Criticism: ‘He is a Faker’
How often a member of the Supreme court tosses a hard criticism towards a presidential candidate?.....almost unheard of.... but..when a long sitting member is asked about her thoughts on Donald Trump.... below is her response...

https://s.yimg.com/lo/api/res/1.2/VXN2EGq5Q0UFSSChBQsPxQ--/YXBwaWQ9eW15O3E9NzU7dz02NDA7c209MQ--/http://media.zenfs.com/en-US/homerun/time_72/ce3d4f2f3d76143fe18627cb85a3e336
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg doubled down on her criticism of Republican nominee Donald Trump, telling a CNN reporter that he’s a “faker.”


“He has no consistency about him,” Ginsburg told CNN (http://www.cnn.com/2016/07/12/politics/justice-ruth-bader-ginsburg-donald-trump-faker/index.html). “He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego. … How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? The press seems to be very gentle with him on that.”


A Trump spokeswoman told CNN Trump’s tax returns are being audited and will be released when that process is complete.
Ginsburg has made no secret of her contempt for the GOP nominee. Last week, she said (http://time.com/4400491/ruth-bader-ginsburg-interview-donald-trump-merrick-garland-abortion/), “It’s likely that the next president, whoever she will be, will have a few appointments to make,” hinting at her preference for Hillary Clinton. On Sunday, Ginsburg said (http://time.com/4400491/ruth-bader-ginsburg-interview-donald-trump-merrick-garland-abortion/), “I can’t imagine what our country would be — with Donald Trump as president.”

millionairetoby your ranting now dude... Trump would make a good prez... i mean.. i thought obama was going to ruin the america i love... i was wrong... maybe your just as wrong about trump.. maybe your not.. one thing for sure.. they guy sure can win...

Mike....I am ranting about Donald Trump for many reasons. But here is the problem, Trump itself.

If it was a different candidate, my ranting tone would be very very different. I have issues with racists and bigots. And that exactly what Donald Trump is. There is absolutely no way in hell that man can be even slightly fitted for the highest office in United States. I had the same reservations about Obama....however, I had more pressing issues at that particular time when he first ran for office ( I was deployed in Iraq back then).

If you think he can win, then it is my opinion that you don't don't know what winning really is. You don't win the hearts and mind of the people by insulting others. You simply don't. You don't marginalize a segment of the population by dissecting others from it. And surely, as one thing you may attest (you said you have a child)....You simply don't insult women, for I am sure your spouse would be mad if you do and you be sleeping in the couch or with the dog outside.

This man has done all of that.

He is winning because he is attracting an specific demographic that appeals to his twisted ideology. Read my previous posts related to his backers demographic and see if you actually fit on those demographic brackets. He is surely NOT winning because he has proposed a sound economic plan or strategy, he is not winning because he came up with an incredibly sound plan dealing with foreign policies, and damn right he is not winning because he proposed the best domestic policy plans. He is winning because he thinks that speaking loudly with insults, some individuals believe that he "speaking his mind" and that is the new "american way" of doing things so is ok and is acceptable.....not so fast buddy....

Matter of fact, any of the crap he came up with, any of my children can do it 10X better than him.

He is not welcome by a large majority of the population, and he is surely not welcomed by the minority groups and women. His alma matter school rejected him, the supreme court justice think he is crazy, and nearly everything about him speaks loudly of "delusional". Matter fact, even military leaders don't want or don't support Trump!! And that says it all because military, is generally seen as being in the republican side.

I know a good man or woman when I see it. I have worked with exceptionally intelligent and gifted individuals, both, women and men. I am to this day proud that I worked alongside these people and I look upon someone that can take the stride and guide this nation in the right path.

Donald Trump simply don't have the qualifications, don't have the personality, don't have the traits, don't have the IQ, don't have the charisma, and simply put, he doesn't have what it is required of a person to be president.

You will see how much qualified he is on the first debate against Hillary....don't miss it.

Don't you get caught up on the idea that he is "successful business man" thus he is going to be awesome for America....

Think about how this man would react to a military crisis....Humm...he probably may try to invite Putin or Kim Jun Un to stay at the Trump Plaza to eat burritos instead.

LOL.... Wolverine....what is the point of this video?

Obama is very gone in few months.....so it doesn't really matter what he did, what he didn't do, or whatever....he is gone and he is not coming back. Moving forward, now we have two candidates....neither one is my first choice, and neither one is favored before my wonderful eyes....yeah...I said "My Wonderful Eyes"....because my eyes sees reality for what really is.

My point is clearly and absolutely focused on how the american people fell for the stupidity called Donald Trump. Is beyond me. I can't really comprehend it.

I can't understand how such an unpopular man is characterized as the "obvious choice" when the reality is, that is wild, crazy, delusional, racist and bigot of man with an ego bigger than Pluto.

The one thing I know for sure, Donald Trump is a moron, and it really don't deserve to be on the ballot for the Presidency of the US.

And so far, absolutely NO ONE HERE, NOT ONE PERSON, NOT A SINGLE INDIVIDUAL has been able to provide with conclusive documentation or evidence as of why the american people should vote for him...

You know why?.....Because not even his own party wants him....

That makes my case stronger to vote against him....

Mike Lee, tea party senator, may help decide Trump’s fate at convention


The mild-mannered first-term U.S. senator from Utah will arrive here Wednesday night or Thursday morning to cast a significant vote in the long-odds battle being waged by some Republican delegates to snatch the party’s presidential nomination from Donald Trump.

Lee, 45, is one of Utah’s two members on the convention Rules Committee (https://ballotpedia.org/RNC_Rules_Committee,_2016), which will vote at the end of the week on a motion to unbind the 2,472 convention delegates next week. If the committee sends the resolution to the convention floor, the whole convention would vote up or down on the measure.

The obstacles facing the Dump Trump effort are high. Multiple Trump campaign officials said Tuesday that their whip count indicated that the “conscience clause” would not get out of Rules, and that if it did, it would lose on the convention floor. There were no signs of nervousness in the Trump whip operation, one said.

Allies of the Dump Trump effort are more optimistic that the Rules Committee might pass the measure to the full convention, but less hopeful about their chances there. In addition, other observers of the process think that delegates trying to send the convention to multiple ballots (https://www.yahoo.com/news/another-gop-stop-trump-effort-000000605.html) by having a few hundred delegates abstain from voting on the first ballot is the better strategy.

Nonetheless, if the Rules Committee does keep the issue alive by sending the conscience clause to the floor of the convention, it could take on life in a way that’s hard to predict.

And Lee is at the heart of this battle. His support for or against the conscience clause proposal will send a powerful signal to those among the other 111 members of the Rules Committee who are wavering. Lee’s wife, Sharon — who, like her husband, was chosen by the other Utah delegates to represent them on the committee — is believed likely to follow his lead, so his decision could swing two votes of the 28 required to bring the motion to the floor. One member of the Rules Committee said many members believe that Lee’s support could be crucial.

A spokesman for Lee said Tuesday that the senator has made up his mind how he will vote and will share his decision with other members of the committee this week.

“Everyone’s lobbying him,” said a senior Trump campaign official.

So far, Lee has been tightlipped about his intentions. There are plenty of reasons, however, why he would vote against Trump on this issue.

Lee has publicly expressed his deep reservations about Trump’s candidacy. Very recently, he said in an interview (http://www.politico.com/story/2016/06/mike-lee-trump-rant-224970#ixzz4EDqLNvS6) with NewsMaxTV that Trump had made “religiously intolerant” statements, referring to Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims from entering the country. Lee noted that Trump is “wildly unpopular” in Utah, which is home to millions of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, a “religious minority… who were ordered exterminated by the governor of Missouri in 1838.”

“I’d like some assurances that he’s going to be a vigorous defender for the U.S. Constitution,” Lee said. And in May, Lee said of Trump (http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/279629-mike-lee-trump-scares-me-to-death): “He scares me to death.”

And Lee is a close ally of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who fought a bitter battle with Trump in the Republican primary. Trump mocked (http://www.cnn.com/2016/04/02/politics/donald-trump-heidi-cruz-tweet/) Cruz’s wife in one of his infamous retweets and alleged (http://www.politico.com/blogs/2016-gop-primary-live-updates-and-results/2016/05/trump-ted-cruz-father-222730) — based on a story in the National Enquirer with no apparent basis in fact — that Cruz’s father was connected to Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.

Lee was enraged by Trump’s accusation about Cruz’s father. “He said that. He actually said that. He said that without any scintilla, without a scintilla of evidence,” Lee told NewsMax.

And last, Lee is no stranger to taking unpopular positions inside his own party. He has not been as provocative toward party elders as has Cruz, but has nonetheless taken on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., many times during the past few years. Lee sought a leadership position within the Senate Republican Conference this spring, but was rebuffed by his fellow senators.

Lee, a lawyer, has clerked for Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito and served as assistant U.S. attorney in Salt Lake City. He will be a heavyweight on the convention Rules Committee, which has only one other member of Congress on it (http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/24/politics/rnc-rules-committee-membership/): Rep. Steve Pearce of New Mexico.

Trump has an experienced group of operatives running his whip operation on the convention Rules Committee, including William McGinley, one of the most knowledgeable GOP rules experts; Ed Matricardi, who helped run Mitt Romney’s delegate whip operation in 2012; Brian Jack, Trump’s national delegate director, and Mike Biundo, who was also on the convention floor for Romney’s whip operation in 2012 and who had high-profile jobs in the presidential campaigns of Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Ohio Gov. John Kasich before joining Trump’s campaign two weeks ago. The RNC has its own whip operation helping the Trump campaign, which includes veterans of multiple campaigns, like Chris LaCavita.

Insider GOP heavyweights on the Rules Committee like Bill Palatucci of New Jersey, a close adviser to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and Henry Barbour, the national committeeman from Mississippi and nephew to former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, are also working to rally committee members to Trump’s cause.

The vote on the conscience clause is expected to take place either late Thursday or Friday, and will probably take the form of a roll call, requiring each of the 112 members to register his and her vote aloud. Until then, it’s hard to know exactly where each delegate stands.

At a Tuesday meeting of the standing Republican National Committee rules committee, which is separate from the convention Rules Committee, RNC General Counsel John Ryder offered a lengthy and detailed exposition explaining why he does not believe the rules allow delegates to go against their states’ primary results to vote their conscience, or for the rules to be changed to allow them to do so.

RNC committeeman Curly Haugland of North Dakota, who has argued for years that delegates are free to vote however they want at the convention, stood up and challenged Ryder. “He’s entitled to his opinion, and I’m entitled to mine,” Haugland said.

And on Tuesday morning, the Wall Street Journal editorial board argued (http://www.wsj.com/articles/trump-and-the-delegates-1468279087) that “there is nothing illegitimate” about a vote to unbind the delegates.

“A conscience vote would be unprecedented, but then this entire year has no precedent. Republicans should nominate the best candidate they think has the best chance of winning in November,” the Journal wrote.

Noting that Trump has said he’d win the nomination even if delegates were free to vote however they wanted — an unproven assertion at best — the Journal said that Trump “ought to welcome a conscience vote.”

Donald Trump Disagrees With the Rest of the World's Leaders on One Key IssueEven Russia and North Korea are at odds with him

Donald Trump’s campaign rhetoric on climate change has him at odds with every other leader in the free world, a new study reveals.


The Sierra Club environmental advocacy group released a report to the Associated Press today (http://bigstory.ap.org/article/9f61f5a9f8b242bc8eb12a9b36449b54/trumps-denial-climate-science-odds-world-leaders) detailing all climate change-related statements given by leaders from 195 nations. The study points out Trump is the only potential world leader who’s said climate change isn’t real, setting him apart from all U.S. allies like the UK and Germany as well as China – the world’s largest polluter – and even rogue nations like North Korea.


“Donald Trump has said a lot about the kind of amazing deals he’ll make with foreign nations,” Sierra Club Spokesman Adam Beitman tells Fortune. “What’s clear from this study is he’s going to be starting out in total disagreement from the very beginning on a very key issue that the rest of the world is in total agreement with.”


In earlier statements, Trump has referred to climate change as a “myth” and a “con job,” promising to renegotiate America’s position in the legally binding Paris accord signed by all participating nations at the inaugural Paris Climate Change Conference last year.



In contrast, Chinese President Xi Jinping, whose country leads the world in CO2 emissions, has called for a reduction of the number of coal-fired power plants in his nation and a conversion to alternative energy sources like wind turbines and solar panels.



Russian President Vladimir Putin and Saudi King Salman also disagree with Trump.


“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will be engaged in several actions to address climate change and make its development more sustainable,” the Saudi Government wrote in a statement last year.


The Sierra Club wants its report serves as a warning to voters. “There’s one person who wants to let the whole [world] burn and it’s Donald Trump,” Beitman said. “We can’t let him be President.”


The Trump campaign did not return calls for comment.

Nailing down the number of legal battles involving Donald Trump and his businesses is a moving target, and the USA TODAY Network's ongoing review of his empire's litigation (http://www.usatoday.com/topic/e133ecb3-2002-4c39-bb61-66aac4eb88f0/trump-and-law/) continues surfacing new cases.


In early June, the analysis had found at least 3,500 cases — a figure that has now surpassed 4,000 — and today we're releasing a new interactive tool (http://www.usatoday.com/pages/interactives/trump-lawsuits/) that lets you explore more than three decades of court actions by and against Trump and his companies.


Trump uses the lawsuits to negotiate throughout his business relationships. He turns to litigation to distance himself from failing projects that relied on the Trump brand. And he uses the legal system to haggle over his property bills and contracts with vendors.


USA TODAY Network journalists continue to scour local, state and federal courts for lawsuits or other legal filings involving the candidate and each of his 500-plus companies he identified on his personal financial disclosure with the Federal Election Commission.

191 Government & Taxes cases

Trump’s businesses have been involved in at least 100 lawsuits and other disputes (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2016/05/19/trumps-tax-troubles/84543538/) related to unpaid taxes or how much tax his businesses owe, in addition to dozens of other court fights with government agencies. Trump’s companies have been engaged in battles over taxes almost every year from the late 1980s and into this year. In addition, at least five Trump companies were issued warrants totaling more than $13,000 for late or unpaid taxes in New York state just since Trump declared his candidacy in June 2015, according to state records.


Journalists built a database of cases that appeared to involved Trump or one of his connected businesses and have spent months reviewing individual dockets or case files to learn more about the circumstances around each case and, where possible, the outcome.
Trump’s business empire is extensive, complex and ongoing. It includes companies that he owns and other involvements that are arms-reach arrangements in which he licenses his name or brand to other companies’ building or products.


The new interactive tool analyses outcomes, filing dates and categories of the legal actions. Generally, Trump’s suits fall into these categories: branding, politics, casinos, contract disputes, employment, his golf courses, government and taxes, media and defamation, personal injury and real estate.


Journalists continue to track new legal battles, since at least 70 new cases have been filed since Trump announced his candidacy a year ago — adding to ongoing prominent disputes like the class action suits over Trump University.

Clinton backer: If Trump releases taxes, donor will give $5M to vetsDavid Brock — founder of Correct the Record, a super PAC backing Hillary Clinton's campaign — announced Wednesday that an anonymous GOP donor had pledged $5 million to any veteran’s charity that Donald Trump wanted. But there's a catch: the presumptive GOP presidential nominee must release nine years of tax returns before Friday.


“We believe that Trump’s tax returns are the voters' business,” Brock told reporters on a conference call. “Trump’s tax returns are the critical baseline from which voters can judge (Trump’s story of being a businessman) to be real or phony.”


When pressed for details about who the donor is, Brock wouldn’t divulge details other than that he was “a lifelong Republican going back to support for Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan, the Bushes, McCain, Romney.”


“He’s an old-fashioned Republican who thinks this is about character … and wants to ensure that the Republican delegates next week know what they're getting into when they nominate Donald Trump,” he added about the donor.


When asked about criticism over using veterans as part of a "political ploy," Brock said the donor thought of the idea himself and that this is no different than Trump bringing up veterans on the trail.


“Trump has put veterans front and center and into the mix himself,” Brock said. The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to request for comment.


IF TRUMP HAS BEEN TRUTHFUL ABOUT HIS TAXES....HE CAN DO THIS IN A HEARTBEAT.....BUT HE WON'T BECAUSE 1- HE DON'T CARE ABOUT THE MILITARY, 2- HE IS A CROOK

'New York Times' story says Trump doesn't rule out quitting after winning


Following the 2016 presidential race has often been an exercise in discerning whether a headline is real or originating from The Onion.
The latest entry is a New York Times story published (http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/08/us/politics/donald-trump-president.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=first-column-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news) Thursday titled: "Would Donald Trump Quit if He Wins the Election? He Doesn’t Rule It Out."
Yes, you're reading that correctly: The premise of the article is the notion that Trump after being elected president of the United States — an office he would've campaigned to win for more than 16 months by Election Day — would immediately walk away, triggering a constitutional quandary.

Apparently, Trump didn't completely dismiss the notion.

The Times cites a recent interview with the presumptive GOP nominee in which a scenario was posed to him about declining the presidency right after defeating Hillary Clinton. Trump, the report says, "flashed a mischievous smile," then says, "I’ll let you know how I feel about it after it happens."

The story goes on to say that this could've been simply another of the real estate mogul's bids to gain media attention, though notes that the idea that Trump's competitive desire to win the highest office in the land might surpass his interest in actually serving in it wouldn't exactly be wildly inconsistent with how some might look at this most unusual of campaigns.

Though obviously implausible, The Times does explain what would happen in such a scenario, using the guidance of Harvard historian Alexander Keyssar. The timing of Trump's hypothetical resignation of an office he'd won but wasn't sworn into would guide the succession procedure, the story notes. If it happened before the Electoral College met in December, the 538 electors would become quite powerful. If no one secured a majority, though, the House of Representatives would get to choose from among the top three finishers, per the Constitution.
However, Keyssar notes in the story that it's not really clear what the protocol would be if Trump bailed after the Electoral College ratified his election but prior to those electoral votes being tabulated during a joint session of Congress.

“Nothing like this has ever happened,” Keyssar told The Times.

Well, that's not entirely true. At the end of the 2012 Will Ferrell comedy The Campaign, Ferrell's character, an incumbent House member, (SPOILER ALERT!) announces he's relinquishing his seat to his rival, Zach Galifianakis, whom he'd just defeated in his re-election bid.
So for those of you worried about a constitutional crisis or the fate of the Republic, I guess we have our answer.

And he is a quiter... too.....

Donald Trump Disagrees With the Rest of the World's Leaders on One Key Issue

Even Russia and North Korea are at odds with him



Donald Trump’s campaign rhetoric on climate change has him at odds with every other leader in the free world, a new study reveals.


The Sierra Club environmental advocacy group released a report to the Associated Press today (http://bigstory.ap.org/article/9f61f5a9f8b242bc8eb12a9b36449b54/trumps-denial-climate-science-odds-world-leaders) detailing all climate change-related statements given by leaders from 195 nations. The study points out Trump is the only potential world leader who’s said climate change isn’t real, setting him apart from all U.S. allies like the UK and Germany as well as China – the world’s largest polluter – and even rogue nations like North Korea.


“Donald Trump has said a lot about the kind of amazing deals he’ll make with foreign nations,” Sierra Club Spokesman Adam Beitman tells Fortune. “What’s clear from this study is he’s going to be starting out in total disagreement from the very beginning on a very key issue that the rest of the world is in total agreement with.”


In earlier statements, Trump has referred to climate change as a “myth” and a “con job,” promising to renegotiate America’s position in the legally binding Paris accord signed by all participating nations at the inaugural Paris Climate Change Conference last year.



In contrast, Chinese President Xi Jinping, whose country leads the world in CO2 emissions, has called for a reduction of the number of coal-fired power plants in his nation and a conversion to alternative energy sources like wind turbines and solar panels.



Russian President Vladimir Putin and Saudi King Salman also disagree with Trump.


“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will be engaged in several actions to address climate change and make its development more sustainable,” the Saudi Government wrote in a statement last year.


The Sierra Club wants its report serves as a warning to voters. “There’s one person who wants to let the whole [world] burn and it’s Donald Trump,” Beitman said. “We can’t let him be President.”


The Trump campaign did not return calls for comment.


The world is gonna burn anyway (not because of climax exchange), so make that two people.

With days to go, GOP convention struggles with $6 million shortfallJust days before the Republican Party’s national convention opens in Cleveland, organizers remain $6 million short of their $64 million fundraising goal for the four-day political extravaganza.

The Cleveland host committee has collected $51 million in cash and another $7 million through in-kind donations as it grapples with boycott calls by activist groups, the loss of taxpayer funding for the event and deep skepticism about Donald Trump, the GOP’s nominee-in-waiting, from some of the party’s leading figures.


The controversy over Trump’s unorthodox candidacy has had “some effect” on fundraising, said David Gilbert, president and CEO of the Cleveland 2016 Host Committee Inc., the nonprofit group responsible for underwriting the convention, which opens Monday.

But, he said, “it’s really hard to put a dollar amount on what the effect of the nominee is. People don’t give us a detailed explanation of why I’m giving or why I am not.”


Several prominent firms, ranging from Coca-Cola to Hewlett Packard and Apple, have either decided not to sponsor the convention or to reduce their traditional convention giving amid calls by activists to boycott the event over Trump’s tough rhetoric about women, immigrants and others. Officials with Color of Change PAC, one of the organizations leading the anti-Trump effort, say 15 companies have scaled back or refused to provide financial support for next week’s gathering.

The answer is easy....NO ONE wants to give to Donald Trump.....simple....
The Democratic National Convention, scheduled for July 25-28 in Philadelphia, has only about $1.3 million left to raise, boosted by a $10 million infusion this week of state funds, former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell said Wednesday. Rendell is chairman of the Democratic host committee.


"I'm pretty confident we'll get there in the next week, and I think we might even have a little bit of a cushion," he told USA TODAY. "I've spent most of my waking hours in the last six weeks, fundraising."


Host committee spokeswoman Anna Adams-Sarthou said the Philadelphia group has collected a total of $71 million to date, through a combination of cash, "confirmed commitments" and in-kind contributions.

Report: Trump seeks $10M from former staffer over nondisclosure agreement

Donald Trump is insisting that aides stick to confidentiality agreements — so much so that he is suing a former campaign consultant for $10 million, according to the Associated Press.


Court documents obtained by the wire service indicate Sam Nunberg has been accused by Trump of leaking confidential information to reporters in violation of his non-disclosure agreement. Nunberg, in response, accuses the Republican candidate of "a misguided attempt to cover up media coverage of an apparent affair" between senior campaign staffers.

Reports the AP:

"The document cited a New York Post story about a public quarrel between the staffers published last month.
"The legal dispute reflects Trump's efforts to aggressively protect the secrecy of his campaign's inner workings. The case is spelled out in court documents that sought to block private arbitration proceedings that Trump initiated in May."


The Trump campaign and Nunberg did not immediately respond to request for comment.

Meet the Woman Who Could Take Down Donald Trump

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Kendal Unruh is trying to do what 16 Republican presidential candidates and at least three super PACs spending more than $20 million could not do: take down Donald Trump.

She's not wealthy but she is principled and has proven some political savviness. She's a delegate on the powerful 112-member Rules Committee of the Republican National Convention that dictates how delegates choose the GOP nominee at the convention.

Her test begins Thursday when the committee meets to determine the rules governing Trump's convention.

Energy builds for idea to reject Trump at RNC 6:52

She's a high school teacher at a Denver Christian school and a conservative activist.

In the span of one month, she has built an organization, has attracted the support of donors and has raised $3.5 million for the effort. National and international media is demanding her attention as she's the anti-Trump Republicans' last stand.

Unruh, like all Colorado delegates, were supporters of Sen. Ted Cruz during the Republican primary and her opposition to Trump is fueling her effort.

Related: Stop Trump Effort Short on Votes But in Striking Distance (http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/stop-trump-effort-short-striking-distance-ahead-committee-meeting-n608756)

She and her newly-formed group, Free the Delegates, teamed up with another group, Delegates Unbound, which is more focused on convention rules in general, regardless of who the nominee is. But this year, their agendas align. The two groups have pooled resources and rented offices in downtown Cleveland to create a space where volunteers and paid staff will strategize and organize just blocks from the convention center where Rules Committee members will meet.

Fellow Colorado delegate, State Rep. Justin Everett, said he's known Unruh since 2004 when he started getting involved in Republican Party politics.

Everett said he admires what she's doing and called her "principled" and "a fighter."

A delegate on the rules committee who is sympathetic to Unruh's efforts said, "I think she does a pretty good job of organizing on a grassroots perspective."

Related: RNC Rules Committee to Take Center Stage in Cleveland (http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/rnc-rules-committee-set-take-center-stage-cleveland-n607941)

But Unruh's challenge is large. She is attempting to convince Rules Committee members that they are not required to vote the candidate for whom they are bound to based on the results of the primary. Her so-called conscience clause is unlikely to receive the support of a majority of the delegates.

If she fails, her back-up plan is to convince 28 members of the Rules Committee — one-fourth of the 112 in attendance — to sign what's called a "minority report." If she achieves that threshold, she can be recognized on the floor of the full convention next week and give Trump opponents an opportunity to cast their vote for another candidate.

But her biggest downfall is her lack of a plan for what happens if her effort succeeds. While supporters are united against Trump, they are divided about who an alternative should be. After one of the group's conference calls to give supporters an update on strategy, many attendees stayed on the line to discuss who could be the replacement nominee. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Cruz are among the names mentioned.

GOP delegate: Systemic problems in Trump campaign 5:47

One member of the rules committee was skeptical about her power and ability to persuade members on the committee as many of them are party loyalists and others are unwilling to upset decorum.

"If it Senator Mike Lee was leading this effort and not a school teacher from Colorado," Trump's nomination could be at more risk he said, referring to the senator of Utah who also sits on the rules committee.

Republican Senator Jeff Flake Explains Why Trump Can’t Win

Donald Trump’s peacekeeping mission to the Senate last week did not go well (http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2016/07/donald-trump-congress-visit), particularly when Arizona senator Jeff Flake greeted the Republican presidential nominee with an icy putdown that was widely circulated (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/07/07/jeff-flakes-stone-cold-introduction-to-donald-trump/) by the press. Representing a state with one of the largest percentages of Latinos in the United States (http://www.pewhispanic.org/fact-sheets/2016-state-election-fact-sheets/latinos-in-the-2016-election-arizona/), Flake has been a vocal critic of Trump’s anti-Hispanic rhetoric, and was quick to call him out on it during the closed-door meeting.

“Yes, I’m the other senator from Arizona—the one who didn’t get captured—and I want to talk to you about statements like that,” he told Trump, alluding to his fellow senator, John McCain, the former prisoner of war whom Trump once mocked (http://www.cnn.com/2016/05/11/politics/donald-trump-john-mccain-hero/) for being captured.

In an interview with the Hive, Flake expressed exasperation that the press had seized on his statement, but didn’t deny that he still has his problems with Trump. Here, he talks about why he doesn’t think that Trump has changed, considers whether his candidacy will impact other Republican races, and explains why he doesn’t believe his own party’s presidential nominee can win.

VF Hive: I have to address a certain Mr. Trump, and that lovely conversation you had with him on Capitol Hill on Thursday.

Jeff Flake: [Laughs] I guess you could call it that.

You’ve been able to be critical of Trump while also saying, definitively, that you’re not in the #NeverTrump camp.

I want to support our nominee. I want to support him, he’s our nominee. I’d like to be able to get there, but given the statements he has made, it’s very difficult for me to do so. I’m not convinced that he’s changed. On the Muslim ban, he has backed off there, though it’s not exactly clear where he’s going to land. He has backed off, and that’s a good sign. But the comment about the judge [Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel] being Mexican, that was just a few weeks ago. And he hasn’t. The wall, his characterization of his Mexican-Americans and Hispanics is just troubling, particularly when you’re from Arizona.

If he continues to refuse to budge on that, what would you do?
I can’t see supporting him. But I’ll continue to make the case: I think somebody should stand up and say, “This is not where the party is, and we don’t agree with that position.” If people don’t stand up on this, then this will have implications far beyond November. That’s my biggest concern. Somebody’s got to stand up to him.

What would it take for him to win back your vote?
Well, that’s not the only thing. His position on trade is very troubling. And you can couch it in terms of fair trade all day long, but if you reject these multilateral trade deals, then you’re really rejecting free trade, because the way that trade is accomplished, these countries have options. Now, if they don’t enter into free-trade pacts with us, there are other groups and nations and other regions that will trade with them. That’s just not a recipe for economic growth. And also, his unwillingness to talk about entitlement reform, that—if we don’t trade, and if we’re going to build fortress America here, and isolate ourselves.


“If people don’t stand up on this, then this will have implications far beyond November.”


You’re the senator from Arizona, and as you told Trump, you’re not up for re-election for a while, and won’t be on the receiving end of whatever retribution he may want to dole out. But your colleague Senator John McCain is up for re-election now, and his race is contentious.
John has his own brand and he’s been our nominee. People know where he is; certainly they do in Arizona. I don’t think he is tainted as much with the positions that Trump has taken towards Hispanics, because people know where John has been. He’s been involved with immigration reform, and he’s just not the type to make those statements or have that sentiment. And Trump has gone after John directly, which is another thing that Trump has never apologized for. That’s pretty upsetting, actually.

What’s your worst fear for a Trump presidency?
Well, I just don’t think he can get there. I don’t think that there’s much worry of a Trump presidency if he doesn’t change. I want a Republican in the White House, but he can’t get there, in my view, saying the things that he’s saying. And we wouldn’t want him to get there if he continues to say the things that he’s saying. So I hope that he changes, I do. It’s not impossible for people to change their views and change their tone. But some of these views have to change. I mean, he’s got to turn some 13.5 million votes to 65 million votes, and you can’t get there just with Republicans—even if every Republican got behind him and had a unified conference. In Arizona, there are more registered independents than there are registered Republicans. And that describes a number of states now. You have to broaden your appeal, and I’m afraid that he’s not.

Finally, this is one of the random trivia things I like about you: you’re a survivalist famous for traveling to deserted islands (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/10/11/AR2009101101760.html). Do you have an island in mind to travel to after the election, and are you tempted to live there permanently?

That’s tempting, sometimes. If I were to do it, I would return to Jabonwad. That’s the first island I went to. But my wife says there would have to be a hotel on that island first. So a hammock won’t cut it.



IF DONALD TRUMP ATTACKS AND INSULTS LONG STANDING FOLKS FROM HIS VERY OWN PARTY, WHAT DOES IT SAYS ABOUT HIS MORALS, HIS JUDGEMENTS, HIS ABSOLUTE LACK OF RESPECT TOWARDS HIS COLLEAGUES..WHAT DOES IT SAYS ABOUT DONALD TRUMP?

HE IS A FAKE. RACIST. BIGOT. A FAKE. RACIST. BIGOT.

Donald Trump’s Field Trip to Congress Did Not Go Well


The Republican nominee flunked a test on the Constitution and received unsatisfactory marks overall.


On Thursday, Donald Trump strolled into the marble halls of the United States Congress, a grand emperor with a golden crown, demanding adulation and tribute from the Republicans. But instead of immediately prostrating themselves in front of him—or even giving him the most tepid of endorsements—the G.O.P., perhaps realizing that they are a separate branch of government, greeted him with everything ranging from disaffection to incredulity to outright hostility.

Trump held a meeting with more than 200 members from the House G.O.P., billed as a meet-and-greet, in which he emphasized his desire to appoint a proven conservative justice to the Supreme Court. While they undoubtedly did not disagree with his point, several House members told The Washington Post (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2016/07/07/trump-meets-with-hill-republicans-as-controversy-over-star-of-david-tweet-continues/?hpid=hp_rhp-top-table-main_trump-caphill-1035am:homepage/story) afterward that they were worried about Trump’s basic understanding of the Constitution. “At one point, somebody asked about Article I powers: What will you do to protect them?” South Carolina congressman Mark Sanford said. “I think his response was, ‘I want to protect Article I, Article II, Article XII,’ going down the list. There is no Article XII.”

The best anecdotes, however, came from his meeting with 41 Senate Republicans. Trump may have arrived in an effort to unite his party, but what resulted was something of a melee. According to The New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/08/us/politics/donald-trump-republican-party.html?_r=0), Arizona senator Jeff Flake, referring to himself as “the one who didn’t get captured” (referring to Trump's past comments about fellow Arizona senator John McCain), said that he couldn’t support Trump due to his comments about a Hispanic judge. Trump reportedly retorted that he would work to make sure Flake lost his re-election bid this year. Flake, in response, told him that he was not up for re-election.

As for Illinois senator Mark Kirk, one of the few Senate Republicans who outright refused to support Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee allegedly called him a “loser” only interested in maintaining his seat in a contentious Senate race. (Kirk was not in attendance.) Aides to Trump denied to the Times that he called Kirk a loser.

(Sen. Ben Sasse, a prominent anti-Trumper and possibly the man with the most apt last name in this election, told the press through a spokesman that he still believed that “with these two candidates, this election remains a Dumpster fire.”)

Trump did make one of his former opponents cave, however. He held a private meeting with Sen. Ted Cruz, and after some negotiations, according to the Times, Trump offered the man who once called him a “rat” he had “no desire to copulate with” (http://www.esquire.com/news-politics/news/a43332/ted-cruz-donald-trump-rat-copulate/) a prime speaking slot at the convention.

In return, Cruz reportedly agreed that he would not attempt a coup at the convention and would allow Trump’s handlers to look over his remarks before he delivered them, the Times reported.

I think you are making this a personal issue....I have been attacking Donald Trump..not you...he is the one running for president...not me....he is the one deceiving all of you...not me...

My issue is with Donald Trump....not the wealthy people....my issue that he has the agenda to be richer with more power....
My issue is that he is racist and a bigot
My issue is that he has the GOP divided
My issue is that he has the brain of the mouse you are talking about
My issue is that he is not qualified to be a candidate for president


So why do you attack me, instead of using your brains to discern with better clarity and intelligence what this man called Donald Trump really is?

C'mmon...you are smarter than that....I think

I am just putting forth all the information that is readily available about this man....so, if you get angry, if you get mad, if you get anxious because the truth is getting more and more clear to everyone, if you get mad because I am helping to enlighten those who are in the dark (like yourself, of course), if you are anxious because you see the GOP divided by one man, if you get nervous because one man is dangerous to all the american people, jeopardizing our way of life, if you get nervous but don't want to admit it.....

Worry no more......

For you have been told by me....that Donald Trump is nothing but a fake poor little man with an ego as big as the moon.



I'm not making , nor taking, anything personal. I did NOT "attack you", I responded specifically to your post.
The man Trump is reportedly suing broke a contract, I assume you understand what contracts are for ?
How does suing the party that did not uphold a contract make Trump a bad guy ???

You obviously take issue with the fact that Trump has a lot of money, you have repeatedly referenced it post
after post after post throughout this thread, it is about the only 100% factual statement you've made about him.

The mouse in your pocket is in reference to you stating "we" the voters, "we" the people, etc.

It is either Trump or Hillary, at this point, and that is the facts. You claim not to support Hillary while continuing to
go on and on and on about Trump. If your post sway anyone, you will only accomplish helping to elect Hillary, yet
you claim not want that. So WTH are you still going on about ???

As for a split GOP, screw the GOP, the republican establishment would rather elect Hillary, so they can keep screwing
the people and business as usual, they should be happy Trump came along. Screw "the party", if it weren't for Trump,
they wouldn't even have a party. Everyone is sick & tired of the republican party, they still party like it's 1999.

I am not at all worried, President trump will fix this mess, or President Hillary will spell the end and there will be nothing
left to worry about.

Meet the Woman Who Could Take Down Donald Trump

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Kendal Unruh is trying to do what 16 Republican presidential candidates and at least three super PACs spending more than $20 million could not do: take down Donald Trump.

She's not wealthy but she is principled and has proven some political savviness. She's a delegate on the powerful 112-member Rules Committee of the Republican National Convention that dictates how delegates choose the GOP nominee at the convention.

Her test begins Thursday when the committee meets to determine the rules governing Trump's convention.

Energy builds for idea to reject Trump at RNC 6:52

She's a high school teacher at a Denver Christian school and a conservative activist.

In the span of one month, she has built an organization, has attracted the support of donors and has raised $3.5 million for the effort. National and international media is demanding her attention as she's the anti-Trump Republicans' last stand.

Unruh, like all Colorado delegates, were supporters of Sen. Ted Cruz during the Republican primary and her opposition to Trump is fueling her effort.

Related: Stop Trump Effort Short on Votes But in Striking Distance (http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/stop-trump-effort-short-striking-distance-ahead-committee-meeting-n608756)

She and her newly-formed group, Free the Delegates, teamed up with another group, Delegates Unbound, which is more focused on convention rules in general, regardless of who the nominee is. But this year, their agendas align. The two groups have pooled resources and rented offices in downtown Cleveland to create a space where volunteers and paid staff will strategize and organize just blocks from the convention center where Rules Committee members will meet.

Fellow Colorado delegate, State Rep. Justin Everett, said he's known Unruh since 2004 when he started getting involved in Republican Party politics.

Everett said he admires what she's doing and called her "principled" and "a fighter."

A delegate on the rules committee who is sympathetic to Unruh's efforts said, "I think she does a pretty good job of organizing on a grassroots perspective."

Related: RNC Rules Committee to Take Center Stage in Cleveland (http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/rnc-rules-committee-set-take-center-stage-cleveland-n607941)

But Unruh's challenge is large. She is attempting to convince Rules Committee members that they are not required to vote the candidate for whom they are bound to based on the results of the primary. Her so-called conscience clause is unlikely to receive the support of a majority of the delegates.

If she fails, her back-up plan is to convince 28 members of the Rules Committee — one-fourth of the 112 in attendance — to sign what's called a "minority report." If she achieves that threshold, she can be recognized on the floor of the full convention next week and give Trump opponents an opportunity to cast their vote for another candidate.

But her biggest downfall is her lack of a plan for what happens if her effort succeeds. While supporters are united against Trump, they are divided about who an alternative should be. After one of the group's conference calls to give supporters an update on strategy, many attendees stayed on the line to discuss who could be the replacement nominee. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Cruz are among the names mentioned.

GOP delegate: Systemic problems in Trump campaign 5:47

One member of the rules committee was skeptical about her power and ability to persuade members on the committee as many of them are party loyalists and others are unwilling to upset decorum.

"If it Senator Mike Lee was leading this effort and not a school teacher from Colorado," Trump's nomination could be at more risk he said, referring to the senator of Utah who also sits on the rules committee.



If the republicans do that, they'll simply be handing the presidency to Hillary, the same way they handed the last eight years to run amok Obama,she is who they really want
anyway, so they can continue their corrupt money train at the expense of the citizens.

Any money hungry idiot can make up a complete fairy tale and file a civil lawsuit. Comparing that to criminal activity which requires some requisite factual evidence to be brought to court is nothing short of ridiculous.

There exist no evidence of criminal activity in Trump's past, zero evidence of any one of his business associates ever dying under mysterious circumstances. Over 50 known Clinton associates are DEAD, most often just prior to testifying, or shortly after agreeing to testify, but that is simply coincidence, right ???

Don't worry....I did it for you...
You must fall within one or all of his demographic bracket....


They Didn’t Go to College

The single best predictor of Trump support in the GOP primary is the absence of a college degree. In an analysis of Trump's blowout win in New Hampshire, Evan Soltas determined (http://esoltas.blogspot.com/2016/02/who-is-voting-for-trump.html) that the factor explaining most of the variance in Trump's support in New Hampshire was education.


They Don't Think They Have a Political Voice

If there were one question to identify a Trump supporter if you knew nothing else about him, what might it be? “Are you a middle-aged white man who hasn’t graduated from college?” might be a good one. But according to a survey from RAND Corporation (http://www.rand.org/blog/2016/01/rand-kicks-off-2016-presidential-election-panel-survey.html), there is one that’s even better: Do you feel voiceless?


They Want to Wage an Interior War Against Outsiders

Matthew MacWilliams, a PhD candidate in political science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, studies political authoritarianism. The classic definition of authoritarianism implies a tradeoff—more security for less liberty—but MacWilliams says it’s also about identifying threatening outsiders and granting individuals special powers to pursue aggressive policies to destroy them. The best predictor of Trump support isn't income, education, or age, he says. In South Carolina, it was “authoritarianism (http://www.vox.com/2016/2/23/11099644/trump-support-authoritarianism) … [and] a personal fear of terrorism” that best predicted Trump’s support across the state.


They Live in Parts of the Country With Racial Resentment

Find a map of the United States and draw a thick red mark just east of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers. That's Trump Country.

Although Trump appears to run equally well among moderates and conservatives in polls, Soltas found that, in New Hampshire, he dominated in more moderate counties. “For every 1 percentage point more liberal the precinct, Donald Trump's share of votes rises by 0.48 percentage points,” Soltas found (http://esoltas.blogspot.com/2016/02/who-is-voting-for-trump.html).

So you are in the same stratosphere.... In denial.... You think Trump didn't make a racial statement....well.... he did..... and I posted numerous links confirming his racists standpoint....

But again....if you fall within his demographic group ( no college, middle aged white man, voiceless, live in a backwoods of america's country land)....then you will see it as business as usual.....racisms is fine, promulgating racism is just fine, attacking women is just like a picnic in the park, and so on...

So...the choice is obvious ( as just you told me a while ago)...... If you feel all the above is right...then go ahead...vote for Trump.....


If you feel that racism, sexism and social ethnic dissection is against your principles....then please....look somewhere else for someone far more competent than Donald Trump.... he is simply not the right choice for your and my future and the future of our families

Time to post some interesting comments from Trump own party fellas (part 1)


George W. Bush: ABSTAIN
The former president “does not plan to participate in or comment on the presidential campaign,” an aide told the Texas Tribune (https://www.texastribune.org/2016/05/04/bush-41-43-have-no-plans-endorse-trump/). (May 4, 2016)

Mitt Romney: NAY
The party’s 2012 nominee, one of Trump’s staunchest critics during the primary, told The Wall Street Journal (http://www.wsj.com/articles/behind-mitt-romneys-increasingly-lonely-challenge-to-donald-trump-1464354734), “I wanted my grandkids to see that I simply couldn’t ignore what Mr. Trump was saying and doing, which revealed a character and temperament unfit for the leader of the free world.” Romney continued: “I know that some people are offended that someone who lost and is the former nominee continues to speak, but that’s how I can sleep at night.” (May 27, 2016)

Romney previously told (https://www.texastribune.org/2016/05/04/bush-41-43-have-no-plans-endorse-trump/)The Washington Post (https://www.texastribune.org/2016/05/04/bush-41-43-have-no-plans-endorse-trump/) he would skip the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, and said (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/article/2590558/) at a D.C. dinner that he won’t be supporting Trump. (May 5, 2016)

Tom DeLay: UNDECIDED
Asked by reporter Jon Ward whether Clinton or Trump was worse, the former House majority leader responded (https://twitter.com/jonward11/status/745348354645889024), “I can’t answer that right now.” (June 21, 2016)

DeLay hadn’t spoken out since Trump’s ascension, but was highly critical of him during the primary: “We have got to stop Trump. Whatever it takes without cheating or violating the rules of the Republican primaries,” he told Newsmax (http://www.newsmax.com/Newsmax-Tv/tom-delay-republicans-stop-donald-trump/2016/03/09/id/718324/).

Jeb Bush: NAY
The former Florida governor and presidential candidate came to detest Trump during the campaign. In April (http://www.cnn.com/2016/04/12/politics/republican-convention-2016/index.html), he said he would not attend the Republican National Convention. He now says (https://www.facebook.com/jebbush/posts/876702172458827) he will not vote for either Trump or Clinton. (May 6, 2016)

Karl Rove: UNDECIDED
The former George W. Bush strategist and current Wall Street Journal columnist and PAC boss has called Trump “a complete idiot” who is “graceless and divisive.” (Trump, in turn, has asked (http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2016/04/29/donald_trump_on_karl_rove_is_he_not_the_dumbest_hu man_being_on_earth.html), “Is he not the dumbest human being on earth?”) But The New York Times reports (http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/03/us/politics/karl-rove-donald-trump.html?_r=1) the two men met in May.

He isn't a Republican. He isn't a conservative. He isn't a truth teller…. I also won't vote for Donald Trump because of who he is. A bigot. A misogynist. A fraud. A bully.” (July 7, 2016)

The senior member of the Florida congressional delegation, who was born in Cuba and emigrated to the United States, has said she will not vote for Trump. “I will work with whomever is chosen by the American people to serve as president, because I deeply respect the American constitutional system,” she said in a statement (http://miamiherald.typepad.com/nakedpolitics/2016/05/miami-congresswoman-confirms-she-wont-vote-for-donald-trump-or-hillary-clinton.html). “In this election, I do not support either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.” (May 6, 2016)

The moderate Maine senator tells Time that she is in wait-and-see mode (http://time.com/4359254/susan-collins-donald-trump-hillary-clinton/). “I’ve said from the point that it became obvious that Donald Trump was going to be the Republican candidate that I’d always supported previous presidential nominees of my party but that in this case I was going to wait and see what happened and that is what I am continuing to do.” (June 7, 2016)

Lindsey Graham: NAY
The South Carolina senator and former presidential candidate blasted Trump following the nominee’s attacks on Judge Gonzalo Curiel, saying fellow Republicans should withdraw their endorsements. “This is the most un-American thing from a politician since Joe McCarthy,” he said (http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/07/us/politics/democrats-trump-presidential-race.html). “If anybody was looking for an off-ramp, this is probably it. There’ll come a time when the love of country will trump hatred of Hillary.” (June 7, 2016)

Ben Sasse: NAY
The Nebraska freshman senator was another anti-Trump ringleader, and has been suggested as a third-party candidate. In a long Facebook post (https://www.facebook.com/sassefornebraska/posts/593031420862025), he explained why he’s still not backing Trump. (May 4, 2016)

The former president “does not plan to participate in or comment on the presidential campaign,” an aide told the Texas Tribune (https://www.texastribune.org/2016/05/04/bush-41-43-have-no-plans-endorse-trump/). (May 4, 2016)

Mitt Romney: NAY
The party’s 2012 nominee, one of Trump’s staunchest critics during the primary, told The Wall Street Journal (http://www.wsj.com/articles/behind-mitt-romneys-increasingly-lonely-challenge-to-donald-trump-1464354734), “I wanted my grandkids to see that I simply couldn’t ignore what Mr. Trump was saying and doing, which revealed a character and temperament unfit for the leader of the free world.” Romney continued: “I know that some people are offended that someone who lost and is the former nominee continues to speak, but that’s how I can sleep at night.” (May 27, 2016)

Romney previously told (https://www.texastribune.org/2016/05/04/bush-41-43-have-no-plans-endorse-trump/)The Washington Post (https://www.texastribune.org/2016/05/04/bush-41-43-have-no-plans-endorse-trump/) he would skip the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, and said (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/article/2590558/) at a D.C. dinner that he won’t be supporting Trump.

Tom DeLay: UNDECIDED

DeLay hadn’t spoken out since Trump’s ascension, but was highly critical of him during the primary: “We have got to stop Trump. Whatever it takes without cheating or violating the rules of the Republican primaries,” he told Newsmax (http://www.newsmax.com/Newsmax-Tv/tom-delay-republicans-stop-donald-trump/2016/03/09/id/718324/).

Jeb Bush: NAY

Trump Own Party Endorsements.... (Part 2)



Marco Rubio: SOFT YEA
The Florida senator and former presidential candidate said (http://www.tampabay.com/blogs/the-buzz-florida-politics/marco-rubio-will-not-attend-gop-convention-citing-re-election-campaign/2284380) he does not plan to attend the Republican National Convention, but he has not made any statement changing his stance on Trump. (July 6, 2016)
In an interview with The Weekly Standard (http://www.weeklystandard.com/rubio-i-still-believe-trump-cant-be-trusted-with-americas-nuclear-weapons-codes/article/2002759#.V1nnOhbbmWl.twitter), Rubio said that although he has backed Trump, who he views as preferable to Hillary Clinton, he still believes what he said during the presidential campaign: That Trump is unfit for the presidency and cannot be trusted with the nation’s nuclear arsenal. (June 9, 2016)

Mark Kirk: NAY (was YEA)
The Illinois senator, one of this year’s most endangered incumbents, has announced that he is no longer supporting Donald Trump—the first Republican to rescind his backing. “After much consideration, I have concluded that Donald Trump has not demonstrated the temperament necessary to assume the greatest office in the world,” he said (https://twitter.com/scottwongDC/status/740268379198660608). (June 7, 2016)

Mike Lee: UNDECIDED
Lee, a conservative Utahan and close associate of Ted Cruz, has not made his decision, but lashed out at conservative radio host Steve Malzberg for pressing him to back Trump. “We can get into the fact that he accused my best friend’s father of conspiring to kill JFK,” he said (http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/06/mike-lee-rant-donald-trump/489530/). “We can go through the fact that he’s made statements that some have identified correctly as religiously intolerant. We can get into the fact that he’s wildly unpopular in my state, in part because my state consists of people who are members of a religious minority church.”

Jeff Flake: NAY
The Arizona senator says he cannot at this point back Trump. “It’s uncomfortable not having endorsed the Republican nominee, I have to say,” he said. “But I can’t at this point. I hope to be able to support the nominee. I certainly can't right now.” (June 7, 2016)

Dean Heller: SOFT NAY
The Nevada senator told (http://www.politico.com/story/2016/06/trump-gop-skeptics-224955)Politico (http://www.politico.com/story/2016/06/trump-gop-skeptics-224955) he is currently opposed to Trump, though he wouldn’t rule out changing his mind. “Today, I’m opposed to his campaign,” he said. “He did a lot of damage. It’s very difficult for him, as far as I’m concerned, to recover from his previous comments. I’ll give him a chance, but at this point, I have no intentions of voting for him.” (June 30, 2016)

John Kasich: SOFT NAY
The Ohio governor and final Republican challenger to leave the race has not entirely slammed the door on backing Trump, but he said he cannot do so now. “We’ll see where it ends up. I’m not making any final decision yet, but at this point, I just can’t do it,” he said (http://www.politico.com/story/2016/06/john-kasich-no-trump-endorsement-yet-224409#ixzz4Bjw65AMg). (June 16, 2016)
Kasich previously had not said whether he’ll back Trump. In his comments leaving the race, Kasich pointedly did not mention Trump (http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/may/04/john-kasich-drop-out-republican-presidential-race-donald-trump-nomination) or indicate his leaning. (May 4, 2016)

Brian Sandoval: UNDECIDED (was YEA)
The Nevada governor, a moderate conservative, once said he would back the GOP nominee, but now says he is “not sure.” (http://www.nbcnews.com/news/latino/nevada-gov-sandoval-voting-trump-not-sure-n587426) “I will only say that you can't defend the indefensible," he said after Trump attacked Judge Gonzalo Curiel. (June 7, 2016)
Sandoval previously said he was no fan of Trump but will back him. “I plan to vote for the presumptive nominee although it is no secret that we do not agree on every issue. Elections are about making choices and the Democratic nominee is simply not an option,” he wrote on Facebook (http://www.nbcnews.com/news/latino/nevada-gov-brian-sandoval-says-he-will-now-support-trump-n568796). He does not plan to attend the convention (http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/09/us/politics/donald-trumps-warning-to-paul-ryan-signals-further-gop-discord.html?em_pos=large&emc=edit_nn_20160509&nl=morning-briefing&nlid=12975946&ref=todayspaper&_r=1). (May 5, 2016)

Rick Snyder: ABSTAIN
Michigan’s governor—a rising GOP star until the Flint water scandal derailed his career—will not endorse Trump, nor will he weigh in otherwise, he said. “I’ve stayed out of the whole thing, and I’m going to continue to,” he told the editorial board of The Detroit News (http://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/politics/2016/06/02/snyder-decides-endorsing-trump-president/85270198/?version=meter+at+0&module=meter-Links&pgtype=article&contentId=&mediaId=&referrer=&priority=true&action=click&contentCollection=meter-links-click). “I’ve got important things I want to work on in Michigan.” (June 2, 2016)

Scott Walker: YEA (was UNDECIDED)
The Wisconsin governor, a former presidential rival of Trump’s, stayed out of the race for some time. But he now says he will back Trump—though don’t ask him to be happy about it, or even use the candidate’s name.

Larry Hogan: NAY (was ABSTAIN)
The governor of Maryland told (https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/md-politics/gov-larry-hogan-i-will-not-vote-for-donald-trump/2016/06/15/5d27b28c-3326-11e6-8758-d58e76e11b12_story.html)The Washington Post (https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/md-politics/gov-larry-hogan-i-will-not-vote-for-donald-trump/2016/06/15/5d27b28c-3326-11e6-8758-d58e76e11b12_story.html) he does intend to vote for Trump. “No, I don’t plan to,” he said. “I guess when I get behind the curtain I’ll have to figure it out. Maybe write someone in. I’m not sure.” (June 15, 2016)
Hogan has repeatedly expressed his disgust with Trump and tried to deflect conversations about national politics. “My thoughts are pretty clear. I’ve talked about it ad nauseam for four or five months,” he said (https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/md-politics/hogan-dodges-question-on-whether-donald-trump-is-fit-to-be-president/2016/06/09/a741c4f8-2e70-11e6-9de3-6e6e7a14000c_story.html). “My thoughts haven’t changed. I have nothing more to add. I’m not involved in it. I don’t care to be involved in it. I’m not going to endorse anyone and would rather focus on things here in Maryland.” Hogan said he didn’t know who he’d vote for. (June 9, 2016)

Susana Martinez: UNDECIDED
The New Mexico governor was initially mentioned as a VP candidate—not the first time, since as a woman and Hispanic she’d add a lot of diversity to a GOP ticket. But she and Trump have since waged a war of words, with Trump first applauding her, then blasting her, then saying he’d like her endorsement. Martinez has not endorsed Trump, but says (http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/03/politics/donald-trump-susana-martinez/) she will not be backing Hillary Clinton. (June 16, 2016)

Bill Kristol: SOFT NAY
The editor of The Weekly Standard threw his lot in with the #NeverTrump crowd with gusto, and he’s been a leading advocate for a third-party alternative. But these days, he seems a bit confused (http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2016/05/02/bill_kristol_reconsidering_nevertrump_never_say_ne ver.html) about what exactly the word “never” means: “I mean, I guess never say never. On the one hand, I’ll say #NeverTrump, and on the other hand, I’ll say never say never. I'll leave it ambiguous.” (May 2, 2016)

Ross Douthat: APPARENT NAY
After spending the primary alternately criticizing Trump and forecasting his doom (http://gawker.com/the-best-of-new-york-times-columnist-ross-douthat-s-inc-1774768281), the New York Times columnist seems especially dyspeptic and despairing. (May 5, 2016)

Erick Erickson: NAY
The radio host, editor of The Resurgent, and former RedState editor writes (http://theresurgent.com/where-should-the-line-be-drawn/): “Hillary Clinton is unfit for the Presidency, but so is Donald Trump. Some Republicans may decide it is time to be a team player, but I will put my country before my party and decline to help the voters in this country commit national suicide.” (May 4, 2016)

Leon Wolf: NAY
Wolf, the editor of RedState, has been a prominent Trump critic. He says he’s leaning toward voting for a Libertarian candidate. “I genuinely believe that Hillary Clinton would be a better President than Trump, and it’s not close,” he wrote (http://www.redstate.com/leon_h_wolf/2016/05/04/trump-clinton-gary-johnson-austin-petersen-best-choice-president/). “That said, Hillary would also be a terrible President, there’s no doubt about that.” He also called on Senate Republicans (http://www.redstate.com/leon_h_wolf/2016/05/04/republicans-confirm-merrick-garland-asap./) to confirm Merrick Garland, President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, lest Trump do the choosing instead.

Trump own Party Endorsements (Part 3)


George Will: NAY
The dean of conservative columnists has left the Republican Party over Trump’s nomination, saying (http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/26/us/politics/george-will-leaves-the-gop-over-donald-trump.html), “This is not my party.” (June 26, 2016)
Will detests Trump, and had previously called for Republicans to defeat him if he is their nominee (https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/if-trump-is-nominated-the-gop-must-keep-him-out-of-the-white-house/2016/04/29/293f7f94-0d9d-11e6-8ab8-9ad050f76d7d_story.html): “Were he to be nominated, conservatives would have two tasks. One would be to help him lose 50 states—condign punishment for his comprehensive disdain for conservative essentials, including the manners and grace that should lubricate the nation’s civic life.” (April 29, 2016)

Charles Krauthammer: SOFT NAY
The leading writer has been very critical of Trump, but in an interview with Bill O’Reilly (http://insider.foxnews.com/2016/05/03/charles-krauthammer-i-dont-think-id-be-capable-voting-donald-trump), he left the door ajar to change his mind. “Let me just say from what I’ve seen up until now, heard from Trump and watched him, I don’t think I’d be capable of voting for Donald Trump,” he said. “Question is, what do I do? I don’t know yet.” (May 3, 2016)

Joe Scarborough: UNDECIDED (was SOFT YEA)
The MSNBC host and token network conservative was among the friendliest voices in the media toward Trump during the Republican primary. He has been more critical since then. Referring to Trump’s attacks on Judge Gonzalo Curiel, he announced (http://www.businessinsider.com/joe-scarborough-republicans-endorse-trump-2016-6) to Republicans, “You have to start calling him out and saying you'll retract your endorsement of him today or else the United States Senate is in danger.” A day before, he compared (http://www.mediaite.com/tv/joe-scarborough-trumps-rhetoric-reminds-me-of-nazi-race-laws/) Trump’s remarks to the Nazi Nuremberg race laws. (June 7, 2016)

Scarborough previously announced was not sure whether he can vote for Trump (http://www.mediaite.com/online/joe-scarborough-says-he-wont-vote-for-trump-unless-he-changes-his-tune/), citing Trump sticking to outlandish promises like a ban on Muslim immigration that he made during the primary. (May 5, 2016)

Glenn Beck: NAY
Beck, the talker who was a Cruz backer, has remained steadfastly opposed to Trump since he became the presumptive nominee. He says Trump cannot win. “I don’t want my children to look at that man and say, ‘Yeah, he’s my President.’ I won’t have that. I will not endorse it, I will not tolerate it,” he said (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2016/05/04/donald-trump-glenn-beck-cruz/83935556/). (May 4, 2016)

Max Boot: NAY
Boot, a leading neoconservative and military historian, says that although he’s a lifelong Republican, the party is dead and he won’t vote for Trump (http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-boot-republicans-in-exile-20160508-story.html): “The risk of Trump winning, however remote, represents the biggest national security threat that the United States faces today.” While “Clinton would be far preferable to Trump,” Boot says that right now “I only know one thing for sure: I won't vote for Trump.” (June 3, 2016)

Michael Reagan: NAY
The son of former President Ronald Reagan, an influential talk-radio host and writer, said he would not vote for Trump in the California primary and added (https://twitter.com/ReaganWorld/status/739949809683955712), “This most likely would be the 1st time if my father was alive that he would not support the nominee of the GOP.” (June 6, 2016)

Hugh Hewitt: SOFT YEA (was NAY)
In the aftermath of the Orlando attack, the talk-radio host, who helped moderate several of the Republican primary debates, has actually softened on Trump, writing in a Washington Post column (https://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2016/06/15/hugh-hewitt-clintons-the-real-risk-if-we-want-to-stop-her-we-cant-dump-trump/) that his focus on security shows that he’s potentially preferable to Hillary Clinton. (June 15, 2016)

Hewitt had taken an unusually hard line against Trump, not only declining to support him but, in the wake of Trump’s comments about Judge Gonzalo Curiel, actually calling for the Republican National Convention to jettison Trump as nominee (http://www.mediaite.com/election-2016/hugh-hewitt-gop-should-change-convention-rules-to-dump-donald-trump/). (June 8, 2016)

Robert Kagan: NAY
Kagan, a leading neoconservative historian and writer, was among the first conservatives to back Clinton, writing way back in February (https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/trump-is-the-gops-frankenstein-monster-now-hes-strong-enough-to-destroy-the-party/2016/02/25/3e443f28-dbc1-11e5-925f-1d10062cc82d_story.html), “For this former Republican, and perhaps for others, the only choice will be to vote for Hillary Clinton. The party cannot be saved, but the country still can be.” He later wrote (https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/this-is-how-fascism-comes-to-america/2016/05/17/c4e32c58-1c47-11e6-8c7b-6931e66333e7_story.html) of Trump, “This is how fascism comes to America.” (February 25, 2016)

Bret Stephens: NAY
The deputy editor of The Wall Street Journal, a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, says he will not vote for Trump, but will probably not vote for Clinton. “Probably none of the above,” he told Hugh Hewitt (http://www.redstate.com/leon_h_wolf/2016/06/17/wsj-deputy-editor-hillary-clinton...-survivable-event.-im-sure-donald-trump./). “I will never vote for Donald Trump. I have a very, very hard time voting for Mrs. Clinton.” But Stephens added: “I think that for the United States, Hillary Clinton, as awful as I find her, is a survivable event. I’m not so sure about Donald Trump.” (June 17, 2016)

Paul Singer: NAY
The major Republican donor, who backed Marco Rubio and contributed to anti-Trump efforts, will not back Trump but also won’t vote for Clinton. Singer joked (http://www.cnbc.com/2016/06/29/gop-donor-paul-singer-says-trump-would-cause-a-depression.html) he might write himself in. (June 29, 2016)
NBC News previously reported (http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/large-gop-donors-warming-trump-not-everyone-sold-n568906) that Singer would not back Trump. Bloomberg reported (http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2016-05-06/trump-taps-goldman-alum-as-uneasy-wall-street-weighs-its-options) he’ll stay out of the presidential race. (May 5, 2016)

Joe and Marlene Ricketts: UNDECIDED
The billionaire couple spent at least $5.5 million on anti-Trump efforts during the primary, and Trump at one point threatened (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2016/02/22/trump-ricketts-family-better-careful/80761060/) them, tweeting, “They better be careful, they have a lot to hide!” They have not made their stance public (http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/large-gop-donors-warming-trump-not-everyone-sold-n568906), though their son Pete, the governor of Nebraska, has endorsed Trump.

Charles and David Koch: SOFT NAY
Prior to Trump’s becoming the presumptive GOP nominee, Charles Koch said he thought Hillary Clinton might be a better president than Trump, though he made no indication that the famed pair of brothers would back her. They now say they are not backing Trump (http://www.politico.com/story/2016/05/trump-megadonors-koch-222825), though a spokesman did not rule it out entirely. (May 5, 2016)

I have been posting FACTS about your presumptive nominee. You think that dumb memes changes educated people's mind. Educated people's mind changes before the presentation of facts that are irrefutable. Educated people reaches their conclusion based on rational analysis of further evidence that can, irreversibly, cement the person's mindset that x or y individual is, for purpose of this thread, qualified for the office the candidate is seeking.

Memes, it doesn't anything but a representation of your frustration to attack an specific individual.

The fact is, Hillary Clinton don't have a divisive party, Trump does. Hillary Clinton hasn't embarrassed her party ideologies with racist comments, Trump did, Hillary hasn't built a wall between her nomination and her colleagues, Trump did, Hillary has far far more prestigious education that Trump does because he only has a bachelor degree, Hillary is far more credentialed to successfully carry on the duties of the President of the United States than Trump does, that is a Fact, Hillary understand to a level Trump would never do how to conduct successful foreign and domestic policies, and more over, she knows how to earn the hearts and minds of the american people.

If Trump wins. America wins. If the crooked, murderous, lying cheat Hil-liar-ry wins, America is doomed to become a third world crap-hole country.

If that would be the case....why doesn't Trump goes as Independent Candidate?..... I will tell you why...... He doesn't know CRAP about politics and he needs "smarter" people than him to help him guide him through the ropes because he knew that his constant racists comments would rub against certain elements of the republican party. That is very obvious and I can't understand how YOU couldn't figure out something so basic. It tells me how naive you could be when understanding certain basic political tricks. He threatened many times to run independent, but he didn't. He wouldn't have any type of powerhouse backers if he did that. So he stayed republican because there, at least, he understood he has better chances. He knew that within the party, there would be individuals aligned with his mindset, albeit, they wouldn't openly admit it. But they were there....

But that doesn't make him any smarter.....because he is not smart at all. Not a bit.

Trump knows he needs someone to fall on if the shit hit the fan, and if he had gone independent, there was no way in hell he would had any chance for a successful nomination.

Look at all those people from his own party that are against him. When was the last time you saw anything that resembles anything like that....well....never because it never happened before. And obviously you and many others can't accept that because you are soooo "enchanted" with Trump's tongue that you can't see reality. I call that "Political Drunkenness".

I mean, I could understand if he had just elements from the Democratic Party lashing out at him....but....when you people from your own party wanting to kick you out....when you have people from your own party developing and motivating a "coup" to get you out of the nomination that sounds a HUGE ALARM....

Unfortunately, you will find out in, not only during the debates, but also during elections day, how soundly Donald (Racist) Trump will be defeated.

And you will be sending letters to your congressman, that a complete overhaul is needed within the party to fix what Trump broke. Because right now, the entire GOP IS BROKEN....and you all need to admit it and face it, it is reality, it is a FACT and is undeniable. THE GOP IS BROKEN RIGHT NOW.

Trump convention speakers highlight unconventional choices

Donald Trump (http://www.cnbc.com/donald-trump/?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cstory%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812) has pushed for a "showbiz" convention when Republicans gather in Cleveland (http://www.cnbc.com/cleveland/?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cstory%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812) next week, and his finally unveiled speaker schedule delivers in part on that promise.

A nontraditional lineup of public figures and family members will join politicians on the stage when the GOP convenes, with highlights including Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White, tech entrepreneur Peter Thiel (http://www.cnbc.com/peter-thiel/?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cstory%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812), and real estate investor Tom Barrack slated to speak.

Other notable names on the list (http://convention.gop/post/147391221740/2016-republican-national-convention-speakers-list): Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions (http://www.cnbc.com/jeff-sessions/?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cstory%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812), Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton (http://www.cnbc.com/tom-cotton/?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cstory%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812), Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr., former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (http://www.cnbc.com/mike-huckabee/?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cstory%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812), Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst (http://www.cnbc.com/joni-ernst/?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cstory%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812), Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, California Rep. Kevin McCarthy (http://www.cnbc.com/kevin-mccarthy/?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cstory%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812), Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (http://www.cnbc.com/ted-cruz/?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cstory%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812) and Florida Gov. Rick Scott (http://www.cnbc.com/rick-scott/?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cstory%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812). They will join a number of party leaders and five members of the Trump family on stage.

But what is unclear is who will garner the coveted keynote speaking slot, or if there will even be a keynote speech. Previous GOP conventions featured party leaders on the rise, with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (http://www.cnbc.com/chris-christie/?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cstory%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812) grabbing the keynote slot in 2012 and New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (http://www.cnbc.com/rudy-giuliani/?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cstory%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812) getting the nod in 2008. Both Christie and Giuliani will speak at this year's convention.

The list of speakers comes a week later than Trump previously promised, with the convention set to kick off on Monday. With the announced theme of "Make America Great Again," the event will focus on issues that have driven Trump's campaign so far, including national security, immigration and trade.

However, this convention may be just as notable for the politicians attending as for those staying away. Republican patriarchs former President George W. Bush (http://www.cnbc.com/george-w-bush/?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cstory%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812) and former President George H.W. Bush have said through spokespeople they do not plan to attend. Last cycle's Republican nominee, Mitt Romney (http://www.cnbc.com/mitt-romney/?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cstory%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812), has also said he will not attend.

A number of other high profile Republicans including Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (http://www.cnbc.com/marco-rubio/?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cstory%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812) and Arizona Sen. John McCain (http://www.cnbc.com/john-mccain/?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cstory%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812) — himself a former GOP nominee — have also said they will not be attending, likely to help distance themselves from their party's divisive nominee as they run in competitive Senate races.

Along with politicians, corporations are also stepping back from contributing to the Republican National Convention this year, slashing the amount (http://www.cnbc.com/2016/07/12/corporations-slash-republican-convention-funding.html?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cs tory%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812) they typically contribute.

More broadly, some visitors and local businesses are wary of the potential for discord amid security concerns and Trump's reputation for emotionally charged rallies, and private security firms have seen a resulting whirlwind of business (http://www.cnbc.com/2016/07/11/private-security-ramps-up-in-cleveland-before-gop-comes-to-town.html?__source=yahoo%7Cfinance%7Cinline%7Cstor y%7Cstory&par=yahoo&doc=103771812).

Meet the Woman Who Could Take Down Donald Trump

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Kendal Unruh is trying to do what 16 Republican presidential candidates and at least three super PACs spending more than $20 million could not do: take down Donald Trump.

She's not wealthy but she is principled and has proven some political savviness. She's a delegate on the powerful 112-member Rules Committee of the Republican National Convention that dictates how delegates choose the GOP nominee at the convention.

Her test begins Thursday when the committee meets to determine the rules governing Trump's convention.

Energy builds for idea to reject Trump at RNC 6:52

She's a high school teacher at a Denver Christian school and a conservative activist.

In the span of one month, she has built an organization, has attracted the support of donors and has raised $3.5 million for the effort. National and international media is demanding her attention as she's the anti-Trump Republicans' last stand.

Unruh, like all Colorado delegates, were supporters of Sen. Ted Cruz during the Republican primary and her opposition to Trump is fueling her effort.

Related: Stop Trump Effort Short on Votes But in Striking Distance (http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/stop-trump-effort-short-striking-distance-ahead-committee-meeting-n608756)

She and her newly-formed group, Free the Delegates, teamed up with another group, Delegates Unbound, which is more focused on convention rules in general, regardless of who the nominee is. But this year, their agendas align. The two groups have pooled resources and rented offices in downtown Cleveland to create a space where volunteers and paid staff will strategize and organize just blocks from the convention center where Rules Committee members will meet.

Fellow Colorado delegate, State Rep. Justin Everett, said he's known Unruh since 2004 when he started getting involved in Republican Party politics.

Everett said he admires what she's doing and called her "principled" and "a fighter."

A delegate on the rules committee who is sympathetic to Unruh's efforts said, "I think she does a pretty good job of organizing on a grassroots perspective."

Related: RNC Rules Committee to Take Center Stage in Cleveland (http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/rnc-rules-committee-set-take-center-stage-cleveland-n607941)

But Unruh's challenge is large. She is attempting to convince Rules Committee members that they are not required to vote the candidate for whom they are bound to based on the results of the primary. Her so-called conscience clause is unlikely to receive the support of a majority of the delegates.

If she fails, her back-up plan is to convince 28 members of the Rules Committee — one-fourth of the 112 in attendance — to sign what's called a "minority report." If she achieves that threshold, she can be recognized on the floor of the full convention next week and give Trump opponents an opportunity to cast their vote for another candidate.

But her biggest downfall is her lack of a plan for what happens if her effort succeeds. While supporters are united against Trump, they are divided about who an alternative should be. After one of the group's conference calls to give supporters an update on strategy, many attendees stayed on the line to discuss who could be the replacement nominee. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Cruz are among the names mentioned.

GOP delegate: Systemic problems in Trump campaign 5:47

One member of the rules committee was skeptical about her power and ability to persuade members on the committee as many of them are party loyalists and others are unwilling to upset decorum.

"If it Senator Mike Lee was leading this effort and not a school teacher from Colorado," Trump's nomination could be at more risk he said, referring to the senator of Utah who also sits on the rules committee.

What really happen!!!
"By James Arkin (http://www.realclearpolitics.com/authors/james_arkin/)
July 15, 2016


CLEVELAND – A long-shot, last-ditch attempt by a few Republican delegates to prevent Donald Trump from securing the GOP nomination failed by an overwhelming margin late Thursday night.
Some anti-Trump delegates on the Republican National Convention Rules Committee sought a strategy to unbind convention delegates, allowing them to vote their conscience against Trump even if they were bound to him by primary results. Delegates loyal to Trump and the Republican National Committee fought back by proposing a counter-measure to clarify that all delegates are bound to vote based on the primary results.

The votes came near the end of a marathon 14-hour session of the rules committee to set any changes ahead of next week’s convention to officially nominate Trump as the Republican presidential candidate. The first vote, on the pro-Trump measure to keep delegates bound, passed easily, 87 to 12.
Immediately following that vote, Kendal Unruh, a Colorado delegate who has led the efforts to unbind the delegates, offered her highly anticipated amendment. She gave a speech beforehand calling the ability to vote one’s conscience a “God-given right.”
“The right to conscience is not just something that we’ve decided is a cool idea. It’s something that is the very basis of our nation,” Unruh said. “It is why the pilgrims came here and founded our nation. It is a God-given right to why we have the Bill of Rights.”


Immediately after that, however, Michigan delegate Matt Hall moved to end debate on the measure, and more than two-thirds of the committee, 77 to 21, voted to cut off all debate while some anti-Trump delegates, including Utah Sen. Mike Lee, were still waiting to speak on the matter.
The committee then voted against Unruh’s amendment by voice vote, with the opposition so clear that a recorded vote was deemed unnecessary."

It has worked before: Shouting loud things you think people want to hear and about hate. There was a guy with a mustache in Germany who used the same tactics, and he got elected. We all know how that ended...

I am not the one wanting the Presidency of the United States and I am certainly not the one making racists comments.....Donald Trump is.....

Matter Fact, I am only posting what MEMBERS OF HIS OWN PARTY ARE THINKING AND SAYING ABOUT HIM....

What could be more wrong than that...that his own members don't want him as the nominee...

And of course...is obvious that those folks that back Donald Trump gets angry because that crap was not supposed to happen within the GOP....but it is happening....

Maybe....if there was a different nominee....things would be different.

You are awful quick to convey raciest fears. Maybe it is a case of the pot calling the kettle black. Your shouting is more of a racist bigot rant than any type of logical deduction. Careful, your true self is emerging and it may not be pretty to most.

Lydia O’Connor (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/author/lydia-oconnor) Reporter, The Huffington Post Daniel Marans (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/author/daniel-marans) Reporter, Huffington Post

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump may have failed to disavow the Ku Klux Klan (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2016/02/29/donald-trump-marco-rubio-david-duke-ku-klux-klan/81101906/) in late February, but he’ll have you know he is not racist. In fact, he claims to be “the least racist person (http://www.businessinsider.com/donald-trump-least-racist-person-don-lemon-2015-12) that you have ever met,” and last summer he pulled out the old standby (http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/politics/2014/03/paul_ryan_s_inner_city_males_comment_the_republica n_congressman_says_he.html) about not having a racist bone in his body (http://www.people.com/article/donald-trump-defends-immigration-comments).

But he hasn’t given us a lot of reason to believe that. In fact, despite Trump’s protests to the contrary, he has a long history of saying and doing racist things. It’s not really surprising that he’s won the support and praise of the country’s white supremacists (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-white-supremacist-sec-primary_us_56cf4437e4b0bf0dab31222f).

Here’s a running list of some of the most glaringly racist things associated with Trump. We’re sure we’ll be adding to it soon.


The Justice Department sued his company — twice — for not renting to black people


When Trump was serving as the president of his family’s real estate company, the Trump Management Corporation, in 1973, the Justice Department sued the company for alleged racial discrimination (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/04/29/donald-trump-blacks-lawsuit_n_855553.html) against black people looking to rent apartments in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island.

The lawsuit charged that the company quoted different rental terms and conditions to black rental candidates than it did with white candidates, and that the company lied to black applicants about apartments not being available. Trump called those accusations “absolutely ridiculous” and sued the Justice Department for $100 million in damages for defamation.

Without admitting wrongdoing, the Trump Management Corporation settled the original lawsuit two years later and promised not to discriminate against black people, Puerto Ricans or other minorities. Trump also agreed to send weekly vacancy lists for his 15,000 apartments to the New York Urban League, a civil rights group, and to allow the NYUL to present qualified applicants for vacancies in certain Trump properties.
Just three years after that, the Justice Department sued the Trump Management Corporation again for allegedly discriminating against black applicants (http://www.salon.com/2011/04/28/donald_trump_discrimination_suit/) by telling them apartments weren’t available.

Here Are 10 Examples Of Donald Trump Being Racist
Part 2
He claims to have “a great relationship with the blacks,” which is totally something a normal person would say.

In fact, discrimination against black people has been a pattern in his career


Workers at Trump’s casinos in Atlantic City, New Jersey, have accused him of racism over the years. The New Jersey Casino Control Commission fined the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino $200,000 in 1992 (http://www.upi.com/Archives/1992/10/19/Trump-Plaza-loses-appeal-of-discrimination-penalty/1911719467200/) because managers would remove African-American card dealers at the request of a certain big-spending gambler. A state appeals court upheld the fine. The first-person account of at least one black Trump casino employee in Atlantic City suggests the racist practices were consistent with Trump’s personal behavior toward black workers.

“When Donald and Ivana came to the casino, the bosses would order all the black people off the floor,” Kip Brown, a former employee at Trump’s Castle, told the New Yorker for a September article (http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/09/07/the-death-and-life-of-atlantic-city). “It was the eighties, I was a teen-ager, but I remember it: they put us all in the back.” Trump disparaged his black casino employees as “lazy” in vividly bigoted terms, according to a 1991 book by John O’Donnell (http://articles.philly.com/1991-05-10/news/25795529_1_trump-associates-trump-s-atlantic-city-donald-trump), a former president of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino.

“And isn’t it funny. I’ve got black accountants at Trump Castle and Trump Plaza. Black guys counting my money! I hate it,” O’Donnell recalled Trump saying. “The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.”
“I think the guy is lazy,” Trump said of a black employee, according to O’Donnell. “And it’s probably not his fault because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.” Trump has also faced charges of reneging on commitments to hire black people. In 1996, 20 African Americans in Indiana sued Trump (http://www.nydailynews.com/archives/money/trump-hit-race-suit-blacks-don-dealt-casino-jobs-article-1.726389) for failing to honor a promise to hire mostly minority workers for a riverboat casino on Lake Michigan.

Apparently Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) does not mind Trump’s racism. Sessions endorsed the GOP front-runner on Monday.



He refused to condemn the white supremacists who are campaigning for him


Three times in a row on Feb. 28, Trump sidestepped opportunities to renounce white nationalist and former KKK leader David Duke (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-david-duke_us_56d31097e4b0871f60ebbd35?m4bcsor), who told his radio audience last week that voting for any candidate other than Trump is “really treason to your heritage (http://www.politico.com/story/2016/02/david-duke-trump-219777).”

When asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper if he would condemn Duke and say he didn’t want a vote from him or any other white supremacists, Trump claimed that he didn’t know anything about white supremacists or about Duke himself. When Tapper pressed him twice more, Trump said he couldn’t condemn a group he hadn’t yet researched. By Feb. 29, Trump was saying (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2016/02/29/donald-trump-marco-rubio-david-duke-ku-klux-klan/81101906/) that in fact he does disavow Duke, and that the only reason he didn’t do so on CNN was because of a “lousy earpiece.” Video of the exchange (http://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2016/02/28/sotu-tapper-donald-trump-full-interview.cnn), however, shows Trump responding quickly to Tapper’s questions with no apparent difficulty in hearing. It’s preposterous to think that Trump doesn’t know about white supremacist groups or their sometimes violent support of him. Reports of neo-Nazi groups rallying around Trump go back as far as August (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-david-duke_us_56d31097e4b0871f60ebbd35?m4bcsor).

His white supremacist fan club (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-white-supremacists_us_55dce43ee4b08cd3359dc41a) includes the Daily Stormer, a leading neo-Nazi news site; Richard Spencer, director of the National Policy Institute, which aims to promote the “heritage, identity, and future of European people”; Jared Taylor, editor of American Renaissance, a Virginia-based white nationalist magazine; Michael Hill, head of the League of the South, an Alabama-based white supremacist secessionist group; and Brad Griffin, a member of Hill’s League of the South and author of the popular white supremacist blog Hunter Wallace.
A leader of the Virginia KKK who is backing Trump told a local TV reporter (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/virginia-imperial-wizard-kkk-donald-trump_us_5728e38be4b016f37893bbce) earlier this month, “The reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of what he believes, we believe in.”

And most recently, the Trump campaign announced (http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2016/05/donald-trump-white-nationalist-afp-delegate-california) that one of its California primary delegates was William Johnson, chair of the white nationalist American Freedom Party. The Trump campaign subsequently said his inclusion was a mistake, and Johnson withdrew his name (http://www.rawstory.com/2016/05/white-nationalist-ex-trump-delegate-real-deal-donald-will-stop-precipitous-decline-of-whites/) at their request.

President Barack Obama mercilessly ridiculed Trump’s birtherism at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in 2011.





He questions whether President Obama was born in the United States



Long before calling Mexican immigrants “criminals” and “rapists,” Trump was a leading proponent of “birtherism,” the racist conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States and is thus an illegitimate president. Trump claimed in 2011 (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/04/07/birther-bonkers-donald-trump_n_846051.html) to have sent people to Hawaii to investigate whether Obama was really born there. He insisted at the time that the researchers “cannot believe what they are finding.”
Obama ultimately got the better of Trump, releasing his long-form birth certificate and relentlessly mocking (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/04/30/white-house-correspondents-dinner-2011_n_855926.html) the real estate mogul about it at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner that year.

But Trump continues to insinuate that the president was not born in the country.
“I don’t know where he was born,” Trump said in a speech (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/02/27/donald-trump-cpac_n_6756836.html) at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday. (Again, for the record: He was born in Hawaii (https://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/rss_viewer/birth-certificate-long-form.pdf).)

Here Are 10 Examples Of Donald Trump Being Racist
Part 3
He claims to have “a great relationship with the blacks,” which is totally something a normal person would say.

He treats racial groups as monoliths



Like many racial instigators, Trump often answers accusations of bigotry by loudly protesting that he actually loves the group in question. But that’s just as uncomfortable to hear, because he’s still treating all the members of the group — all the individual human beings — as essentially the same and interchangeable. Language is telling, here: Virtually every time Trump mentions a minority group, he uses the definite article the, as in “the Hispanics,” “the Muslims” and “the blacks.”

In that sense, Trump’s defensive explanations are of a piece with his slander of minorities. Both rely on essentializing racial and ethnic groups, blurring them into simple, monolithic entities, instead of acknowledging that there’s as much variety among Muslims and Latinos and black people as there is among white people.

How did Trump respond to the outrage last year that followed his characterization of Mexican immigrants as criminals and rapists (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2015/07/08/donald-trumps-false-comments-connecting-mexican-immigrants-and-crime/)?
“I’ll take jobs back from China, I’ll take jobs back from Japan,” Trump said during his visit to the U.S.-Mexican border (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-border_us_55b17c0be4b0224d8831ac3a) in July. “The Hispanics are going to get those jobs, and they’re going to love Trump.”

“The Hispanics are going to get those jobs, and they’re going to love Trump.” Donald Trump, July 2015

How did Trump respond to critics of his proposal to ban Muslims from entering the U.S.?

“I’m doing good for the Muslims,” Trump told CNN (http://www.cnn.com/2015/12/09/politics/donald-trump-don-lemon-cnn-interview/) in December. “Many Muslim friends of mine are in agreement with me. They say, ‘Donald, you brought something up to the fore that is so brilliant and so fantastic.’”

Not long before he called for a blanket ban on Muslims entering the country, Trump was proclaiming his affection for “the Muslims,” disagreeing with rival candidate Ben Carson’s claim in September that being a Muslim should disqualify someone from running for president.

“I love the Muslims. I think they’re great people,” Trump said (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-muslims_us_56660437e4b072e9d1c742d8), insisting that he would be willing to name a Muslim to his presidential cabinet.
How did Trump respond to the people who called him out for funding an investigation into whether Obama was born in the United States?

“I have a great relationship with the blacks,” Trump said (http://firstread.nbcnews.com/_news/2011/04/14/6471219-trump-i-have-a-great-relationship-with-the-blacks) in April 2011. “I’ve always had a great relationship with the blacks.”
Even when Trump has dropped the definite article “the,” his attempts at praising minority groups he has previously slandered have been offensive.

Look no further than the infamous Cinco de Mayo taco bowl tweet (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-taco-bowl_us_572bf20be4b096e9f090e1c5):
Happy #CincoDeMayo (https://twitter.com/hashtag/CincoDeMayo?src=hash)! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics! https://t.co/ufoTeQd8yA pic.twitter.com/k01Mc6CuDI (https://t.co/k01Mc6CuDI)
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 5, 2016 (https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/728297587418247168)



Former Republican presidential candidate and Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) had a good breakdown (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/jeb-bush-trump-cinco-de-mayo_us_573b2849e4b077d4d6f4086d) of everything that was wrong with Trump’s comment.

“It’s like eating a watermelon and saying ‘I love African-Americans,’” Bush quipped.


He called supporters who beat up a homeless Latino man “passionate”


Trump’s racial incitement has already inspired hate crimes. Two brothers arrested (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/scott-steve-leader-donald-trump_us_55d61a0ce4b0ab468da040f3) in Boston last summer for beating up a homeless Latino man cited Trump’s anti-immigrant message when explaining why they did it.

“Donald Trump was right — all these illegals need to be deported,” one of the men reportedly told police officers.
Trump did not even bother to distance himself from them. Instead, he suggested that the men were well-intentioned and had simply gotten carried away.

“I will say that people who are following me are very passionate,” Trump said. “They love this country and they want this country to be great again.

Trump’s daughter Ivanka, second from left, converted to Judaism in 2009. That has not stopped Trump from bringing up anti-Semitic comments.

He stereotyped Jews as good negotiators — and political masterminds


When Trump addressed the Republican Jewish Coalition in December, he tried to relate to the crowd by invoking the stereotype of Jews as talented and cunning businesspeople.

“I’m a negotiator, like you folks,” Trump told the crowd (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/john-kasich-donald-trump-jewish-coalition_us_56607915e4b08e945fee587c), touting his book The Art of the Deal.
“Is there anyone who doesn’t renegotiate deals in this room?” Trump said. “Perhaps more than any room I’ve spoken to.”

But that wasn’t even the most offensive thing Trump told his Jewish audience. He implied that he had little chance of earning the Jewish Republican group’s support, because his fealty could not be bought with campaign donations.

“You’re not going to support me, because I don’t want your money,” he said. “You want to control your own politician.”
Ironically, Trump has many close Jewish family members. His daughter Ivanka converted to Judaism in 2009 (http://www.jpost.com/Not-Just-News/Ivanka-Trumps-Jewish-family-growing-with-third-child-on-the-way-419076) before marrying the real estate mogul Jared Kushner. Trump and Kushner raise their two children in an observant Jewish home.

It’s maybe not surprising that Trump has brought so much racial animus into the 2016 election cycle, given his family history. His father, Fred Trump, was the target of folk singer Woody Guthrie’s lyrics after Guthrie lived for two years (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/woody-guthrie-trump_us_56a18e5ae4b0404eb8f11bb3) in a building owned by Trump pere: “I suppose / Old Man Trump knows / Just how much / Racial hate / He stirred up / In the bloodpot of human hearts.”

And last fall, a news report from 1927 surfaced on the site Boing Boing, revealing that Fred Trump was arrested (http://boingboing.net/2015/09/09/1927-news-report-donald-trump.html) that year following a KKK riot in Queens. It’s not clear exactly what the elder Trump was doing there or what role he may have played in the riot. Donald Trump, for his part, has categorically denied (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/02/28/in-1927-donald-trumps-father-was-arrested-after-a-klan-riot-in-queens/) (except when he’s ambiguously denied (http://www.nytimes.com/politics/first-draft/2015/09/22/in-interview-donald-trump-denies-report-of-fathers-arrest-in-1927/)) that anything of the sort ever happened.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump is a serial liar (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-911_565b1950e4b08e945feb7326), rampant xenophobe (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/9-outrageous-things-donald-trump-has-said-about-latinos_55e483a1e4b0c818f618904b), racist (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-muslim-immigration-us_5665f75de4b072e9d1c7252b), misogynist (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/18-real-things-donald-trump-has-said-about-women_us_55d356a8e4b07addcb442023), birther (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-stephen-colbert-birther_56022a33e4b00310edf92f7a) and bully (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-black-lives-matter-protester_5651ea96e4b0258edb31dd7e) who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
