Trump's Behavior During His Run For President Has Cost Him Over $800 Million Dollars (VIDEO)

According to Forbes magazine, which has been tracking Trump’s wealth for 34 years, the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s estimated net worth is $3.7 billion

That estimate puts the Donald's wealth over $800 million less than a year ago.

Reports of the real estate mogul's losses are attributed to Trump's now-infamous comments disparaging Mexicans as well as his inability to understand New York’s softening real estate market.

As far as the real estate is concerned, Forbes probed 28 assets or asset classes owned by the New York businessman and found 18 had suddenly declined in value.

The properties that have depreciated include Trump Towers in Manhattan, his prized Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida and the value of his 40 Wall Street property in downtown New York had also declined.

Forbes also disputed Trump’s assertion in Monday night’s presidential debate that he reported $694 million in income from last year to the Federal Election Commission. Forbes said Trump mixed revenue and income in the document.

As far as the Trump brand is fairing a video was just released today of Donald Trump acknowledging that his now-famous comments calling Mexicans "rapists" harmed his business interests.

A District of Columbia Superior Court released transcripts of Trump's deposition and sworn testimony from his children over his loss of business following his comments on Mexico. News outlets petitioned successfully for the release of the actual video.

Here is an excerpt from that video...

I personally enjoyed how Trump looks like he was being restrained in an invisible straight jacket through the whole clip.

When asked about the decline in his real estate holding and his brand representatives for the Trump campaign could not be reached for comment.

The report comes as Trump campaigns on being a businessman who can bring, what he refers to as a failing economy, back to it's former greatness. These reports will not do him any favors in promulgating that fiction.

PS - The loss of revenue from companies cutting ties with the Trump brand was not factored into the Forbes total. This means his losses exceed that original estimate.

Donald Trump: Facista Americano

American fascist
The Mexican literary magazine Letras Libres has unveiled the cover of it’s October issue and it is anything but subtle.

But then again the subject they are addressing has little in common with subtlety either.

The current issue includes articles with titles like “Donald Trump Thinks Politics is Business, and Business is Theft” and “Hillary’s Attacks on Trump in Their First Head-to-Head” which begins by properly assessing…

She crushed him.

The longer this campaign goes on the less and less the media are shying away from direct comparisons of Trump’s authoritarian policies, fascist ideals and politics of fear and those of Hitler.

In December the Philadelphia Daily News compares Donald Trump to Hitler with the headline "The New Furor" after his Muslim ban proposal...


Back in January when the German weekly Der Spiegel unveiled a cover of Trump superimposed on a burning American flag with the headline “Madness: America’s Agitator Donald Trump"...


And who can forget back in March when the Daily News ran the screaming headline "Trump Is Hitler!"...



USA Today Declares Donald Trump "Unfit For The Presidency"

Today USA Today is will be breaking with one of its own long held traditions and take a side in the 2016 race.

The paper's editorial board will be urging readers to vote against Donald Trump.

The newspaper, one of the most widely circulated in the country, argued that no presidential contest until now has warranted such a statement...

This year, the choice isn’t between two capable major party nominees who happen to have significant ideological differences. This year, one of the candidates — Republican nominee Donald Trump — is, by unanimous consensus of the Editorial Board, unfit for the presidency.

The editorial continues...

From the day he declared his candidacy 15 months ago through this week’s first presidential debate, Trump has demonstrated repeatedly that he lacks the temperament, knowledge, steadiness and honesty that America needs from its presidents.” 

The editorial lists among it's reasons to vote against Trump is his prejudiced rhetoric, his erratic temperament, his “checkered” business history and his dishonesty.

The paper did however stop short of endorsing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Trump And The Right Wing Media Falsely Smear Former Miss Universe As A Porn Star (VIDEO) *UPDATE

At Monday night's debate Hillary Clinton scored major points when she brought up Alicia Machado, a contestant from the Trump owned Miss Universe pageant, whom he "fat shamed" when she gained weight after winning the contest's title. Trump mocked mrs. Machado by calling her "Miss Piggy" and in addition referred to her as "Miss Housekeeping" in reference to her Hispanic heretige.

You can watch the moment here...

Click image for video

Trump only made things worse when he went did a call in interview with Fox News the next morning and inexplicably brought up Machado saying she had “gained a massive amount of weight and it was a real problem.” and called her "the worst". In addition to that the Clinton campaign released an ad about Trump's abuse of his former employee that same morning.

With that the Trump campaign knew they were in trouble and the cavalry rushed in to haul his ass out of the fire.

This is when conservative media figures immediately went into damage control and began the campaign of humiliation against the former beauty pageant contestant by accusing her of being, among other things, a “porn star”.

After the debate debacle, the clueless call in and the release of the campaign ad a conservative website named "The Dailly Caller", which is owned by Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson, ran an article headlined, “Porn Star Campaigns For Hillary Clinton”. The website falsely reported that “Snippets of an adult film starring Machado are available on multiple free porn websites”.

While it turned out that the adult film being referenced was a pornographic parody of Donald Trump's  show "The Apprentice" entitled "Apprentass" (Yes, really!) and that the former Miss Universe Alicia Machado never appeared in the film the Dailly Caller's headline remains the same. The only difference was that now it read that she “is in a sextape” that was released in 2005 and still baselessly claims that Machado made an “appearance in porn” and that she had a “background in pornography.

Regardless, the apparently unsubstantiated claim that Machado appeared in adult films rocketed through Trump’s supporters in the right-wing media.

Rush Limbaugh opened his September 28 radio show by describing Machado as the “porn star Miss Piggy.” and ran a headline reading "Desperate Hillary Makes Porn Star the Centerpiece of Her Campaign".

Next in line to take a shot at Machado was Fox News’ Sean Hannity who claimed on his radio show “that she may have starred in an adult film, and available apparently on multiple free porn websites according to the Daily Caller.”. He also said that Machado is “in all these porn videos” during an interview with Eric Trump.

Then of course InfoWars' Alex Jones chummed up the water with a piece titled "HILLARY’S NEW ANTI-TRUMP POSTER CHILD IS A PORN STAR"...  in all caps because of course.

Other right wing sites that peddled the lie include The Gateway Pundit' with the headline: "Hillary Touts Ex-Miss Universe at Debate… Who Later Became Porn Actress", Chritian Forums with "Desperate Hillary Makes Porn Star the Centerpiece of Her Campaign", and CNN’s Jeffrey Lord who wrote a piece in American Spectator headlined “Hillary’s Bad Judgement: Exploits Porn Star Surrogate” complete with a picture of The muppet Miss Piggy.

Last and very least Donald Trump last night, not wanting to miss out on all the fun, took a cheap shot at Machado on The O'reilly Factor. All that was needed by the candidate, who's little hands had remained clean of the smear campaign, was some unsubtle innuendo...

"Some reports just came out 20 minutes ago about her. And you know, I mean, if that turns out to be true. A lot of the things that are turning out to be, perhaps, true, I think it's going to make Hillary look extremely bad. But, again, I helped somebody and this is what you get for helping somebody. But I just don't know her."

This effort to shame Machado into silence would be despicable even if it were true because it is unclear why Trump’s behavior would be mitigated by Machado performing in adult films.

Finally let's look at what a perfect example this is of how the right wing operates. This whole smear campaign was in house. The "story" is floated by a website run by a Fox News employee which is then picked up by right wing radio which is then written about on conservative news sites and finally lands in the lap of the person for whom the lie was started. At the end of the day it no longer matters whether the story is true or false because, as the saying goes, you can't unring a bell.

What a nauseatingly incestuous and grotesquely efficient operation.

* UPDATE: 9/30/16...

Trump has finally dismissed all innuendo and told his Twitter followers to “check out [her] sex tape” and then alleges that Clinton helped her get U.S. citizenship in exchange for the campaign ad to boot...


All class Donny!

18 Completely Baseless Lies Donald Trump Told At The Presidential Debate

The lies from Trump were plentiful and the fact checkers were BUSY!!!!

Here we go in no particular order...


Lie #1: Denies making remarks about climate change

During the debate Hillary Clinton reminded the audience that Donald Trump said on many occasions that "climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese" to which he responded...

I did not—I do not say that.

Trump has in fact said that climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese...



Lie #2: Denies his own proposal to negotiate down the debt

When Clinton reminded Trump that: “You even went and suggested that you would try to negotiate down the national debt of the United States.” Trump blurted out...

Wrong.

Trump had said in an interview in May on CNBC that as president, “I would borrow, knowing that if the economy crashed, you could make a deal” on the debt. Economists have widely panned this idea as economically catastrophic.


Lie #3: Denies supporting the Iraq War

When faced with his support of the Iraq war in 2002 Trump shot back...

I did not support the war in Iraq.

But of course he did. Trump expressed support for the invasion of Iraq before it took place and only said that he opposed the war after the conflict had started.


Lie #4 : Denies calling pregnancy a business inconvenience

Reminding the audience of Trump's misogyny Clinton exclaimed: “This is a man who is called women pigs, slobs and dogs, and someone who has said pregnancy is an inconvenience to employers.” Trump's meager reply to the allegation was...

I never said that.

In 2004 on NBC's Dateline Trump said that pregnancy is “certainly an inconvenience for a business.


Lie #5: Falsely claims he only received a small loan from his father

Trump has repeatedly told the story to any that will listen that he received only a “small loan of a million dollars” from his father, real estate mogul Fred Trump which he then parlayed into his supposedly "muti-billion" dollar empire...

My father gave me a very small loan in 1975.

The truth is that Trump regularly relied “on his father’s connections and wealth” in the form of “lucrative trusts” and “numerous loans and loan guarantees, as well as his father’s connections,”. The loans Trump received from his father amounted to $14 million, “a value of $31 million in today’s dollars.


Lie #6: Trump's claim that it was the Clinton that campaign started the birther movement.

Tump once again claimed that Hillary Clinton and her campaign started the "birther movement" in 2008 when she was campaigning against then Senator Barack Obama...

They were pressing it very hard, she failed to get the birth certificate. When I got involved, I didn't fail. I got him to give the birth certificate. So I'm satisfied with it, and I’ll tell you why I’m satisfied with it.

There has never been any proof that anyone in Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign pushed either the birther conspiracy theory. Politifact has thoroughly debunked the lie.


Lie #7 : Misleadingly claims jobs are “fleeing” abroad

During the debate Trump once again blessedly claimed that American jobs were leaving the country and that the unemployment rate was rising...

Our jobs are fleeing the country.

Employment has been rising since the end of the Bush Recession and the economy has added 15.1 million private sector jobs over the last 78 months...


Lie #8: Falsely claims China is devaluing their currency.

Trump also claimed that China has been devaluing it's currency to hurt America as far as trade with their country is concerned...

You look at what China is doing to our country in terms of making our product, they're devaluing their currency and there's nobody in our government to fight them.

The Wall Street Journal notes China is now intervening in its currency to prevent devaluation, not allow it. In fact, Beijing burned through nearly a quarter of what was once a $4 trillion currency stockpile to prevent the yuan from falling against the dollar.”


Lie #9 : Claimed the Federal Reserve is “doing political” by not increasing interest rates.

Trump continued to assert that the Federal Reserve is manipulating the economy for and at the behest of President Obama...

This Janet Yellen of the Fed, the Fed is doing political by keeping interest rates at this level. And believe me the day Obama goes off and he leaves and he goes out to the golf course for the rest of his life to play golf, when they raise interest rates, you are going to see some very bad things happen because the Fed is not doing their job. The Fed is being more political than Secretary Clinton.

The Federal Reserve is an independent institution and Trump has yet to offer any evidence that Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen is taking her cues from President Obama.


Lie #10 : Absurdly claims Clinton has fought ISIS for several decades...

In a statement that made absolutely zero sense Trump claimed Hillary Clinton had been fighting ISIS since the 60's...

No wonder you’ve been fighting ISIS your entire adult life.

Hillary Clinton is 68 years old and graduated from college in 1969. The truth is that ISIS was created out of the Islamic State of Iraq, which was founded in 2006, 2 years before Clinton was the Secretary of State.


Lie #11 : Claims other countries don’t pay us for military defense.

Trump assertion that our NATO allies don't "pay" their fair share when it come to deserving our military aid...

We defend Germany. We defend South Korea. We defend Saudi Arabia. We defend countries. They do not pay us what they should be paying us because we are providing tremendous service and we’re losing a fortune.

It turns out The United States gives very little monetary military aid to those countries.


Lie #12 : Falsely claims NATO allies aren’t paying the U.S

Trump...

We pay approximately 73 percent of the cost of NATO.

Trump is wrong, the U.S. doesn’t pay 73 percent of NATO’s operational budget. The United States pays just over 22 percent of the cost of NATO’s spending.


Lie #13: Falsely claims the U.S. paid Iran $400 million

Trump once again brought up the canard of our government paying Iran ransom for hostages...

One of the great giveaways of all time, of all time, including four hundred million dollars in cash nobody’s ever seen that before that turned out to be wrong.

As the media had pointed out over and over again, the fake story Trump keeps referencing about a 400 million dollar payout “was Iran’s money, for military goods never delivered to Iran after the Iranian Revolution”. A deal that was carried out in 1979!


Lie #14 : Suggesting America is experiencing a crime wave

In an attempt to paint our inner cities as violence ridden war zones Trump said this...

We have a situation where we have our inner cities, African-American, Hispanics, are living in hell because it's so dangerous. You walk down the street, you get shot. In Chicago, they’ve had thousands of shootings, thousands, since January first. Thousands of shootings. And I’m saying where is this? Is this a war-torn country?

Far from a crime wave, FactCheck.org points out that the violent crime rateis lower than it has been since 1970” and “the murder and nonnegligent manslaughter rate nationwide, at 4.5 in 2014, was at its lowest point since at least the early 1960s.


Lie #15: Baselessly says stop and frisk “worked very well” in New York

Trump, in an effort to push his "law and order" bona fides, once again trotted out the supposed success NY enjoyed with stop and frisk policies...

You do stop and frisk, which worked very well—Mayor Giuliani is here — worked very well in New York.

He is of course wrong. A 2013 report from the New York attorney general found that out of 2.4 million stops by police between 2009 and 2012, the stops resulted in a 3 percent conviction rate, and just 0.1 percent of the total stops went on to a violent crime conviction. Also, New York City’s crime rate continued to fall after stop-and-frisk was ended.


Lie #16 : Falsely claims the murder rate in New York went up after the end of stop and frisk

When discussing "Stop and Frisk" Hillary Clinton corrected Trump telling him that under the current mayor crime "has continued to drop, including murders." Trump refused to accept her statement telling her she was "wrong.” and that...

Murders are up.

Trump was wrong: Homicides in NYC continue fall — down 13% so far in 2016


Lie #17 : Falsely claims stop and frisk wasn’t ruled unconstitutional

After Lester Holt asked if “Stop and frisk was ruled unconstitutional in New York because it largely singled out black and Hispanic young men.” Trump said...

No, you're wrong. It went before a judge who was a very against-police judge. It was taken away from her and our mayor, our new mayor, refused to go forward with the case. They would have won an appeal.

Trump is wrong. On August 12, 2013, U.S. District Court Judge Shira A. Scheindlin ruled the controversial police tactic unconstitutional.


Lie #18 : Falsely claims ICE endorsed him

I was is endorsed by ICE. They’ve never endorsed anybody before — on immigration. I was just endorsed by ICE.

ICE is a federal agency and has not endorsed Trump, or any other candidate for that matter.


This is exhausting. Thank goodness there is a couple of weeks before the next lie-a-thon!

FIRST DEBATE: Clinton Crushes! (FULL VIDEO)

The debate tonight wasn't close. It was a shut out. It was a route. It was a knock out.

Trump came out strong but after a few minutes it was apparent that this wasn't a fair fight. Oddly enough it was comparable to the way Trump steamrolled his competitors in the primaries but this time he was the one being flattened.

While Clinton used her time to talk policy Trump spent the majority his time on the stage literally sniffling, grumbling, interrupting and swilling water like a common Marco Rubio.

It was so bad that some in the media are saying that Donald Trump's performance might have been the worst in presidential debate history.

Like I said it started off okay. Trump landed three good blows. Trump tagged Clinton on the NAFTA trade deals, he scored another shot referencing the mess in the Middle East and then his last offensive output came with a jab at Hillary’s 30.000 deleted emails.

But then Trump appeared to run out of material and steam. About twenty minuets into the debate Trump, not Clinton, seemed to have a "stamina" problem. That is when Clinton took the reigns of the debate and never relinquished them.

Clinton attacked Trump on everything from his unreleased tax returns, to his ever-changing stance on middle east conflicts, the "small loan" (millions) he obtained from his father and a damaging exchange on his birtherism.

At the end Trump was reduced to shouting incoherent half sentences like how someone should call Sean Hannity about his support for the Iraq war and nonsensical references to how mean Rosie O'Donnell was to him.

When Trump wasn't talking complete nonsense he was all too busy mugging for the camera, making weird noises and interrupting both the moderator and Hillary Clinton.

Unfortunately for Trump when he was interrupting it was to answer either an accusation made by Clinton or double down on a lie he was getting called out on by Lester Holt.

In the end Clinton kept setting him up and he kept taking the bait. By the end of the night he was buried under a mountain of his own bullshit and bad behavior.

Here's how the debate numbers broke down according to the first two snap polls...

CNN/ORC Poll found that Hillary Clinton was deemed the winner of Monday night's debate by 62% of voters who tuned in to watch, while just 27% said they thought Donald Trump had the better night.

PPP's post debate survey finds that voters nationally think Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in the debate, 51/40.

In all honesty it wasn't even as close as these polls make it out to be.

Here is the full debate from last night...

North Carolina Congressman Says People In Charlotte Are Only Protesting Because They “Hate White People" (VIDEO)

On Thursday US Rep. Robert Pittenger made an ill fated appearance on BBC TV in which he attempted to explain the “grievances” of the protesters in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Many of us were all under the false impression that the protestors had taken to the streets to voice their anger and concern over another African-American being gunned down in America (The 2nd this week) at the hands of our police force. That is not the case though.

The real reason was revealed by Rep. Pittenger when the show’s host asked him what protesters’ grievances were…

"The grievance in their minds... the animus, the anger... they hate white people, because white people are successful and they're not. I mean yes it is, it is a welfare state. We have spent trillions of dollars on welfare, and we’ve put people in bondage, so they can’t be all they’re capable of being.

Here is the video…

Click image for video

After his racist statements went public and then roundly condemned Pittenger sort of apologized…

What is taking place in my hometown right now breaks my heart. My anguish led me to respond to a reporter’s question in a way that I regret. The answer doesn’t reflect who I am. I was quoting statements made by angry protesters last night on national TV"

Oh yeah! I remember that protestor now. He was on the TV saying how he hated white people because they were successful and he wasn’t. That protestor was on all the TV’s saying the thing Rep. Robert Pittenger said he said! Now it all makes sense. It was just a quote.

GLOBAL WARMEST! NOAA Reports Record Shattering Hottest Summer Ever

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reported this week that earth has just suffered through it's hottest summer on record globally beating the previous mark set only last year.

From June to August, average temperatures across global land and ocean surfaces soared 1.6 degrees Fahrenheit above the average of 60.1 degrees (F), according to a federal climate report.

Michael Mann, director of Penn State’s Earth System Science Center, says that since NOAA's records only date back to 1880...

"There is now very robust paleoclimate evidence that the past decade was likely Earth’s warmest in more than a thousand years, and there is somewhat more tentative but nonetheless compelling evidence that we have moved into territory unseen in more than a hundred thousand years"

Last month also marked the hottest ever for August, which was also the 16th straight month to set a global heat record

The last time the Earth had a cooler-than-average month was December 1984

To cap the already frightening report was the specter that the first eight months of this year were also record setting hot, putting 2016 on track to be the warmest year on record.

Here's a terrifying chart from NOAA you can show any climate change deniers you might know...

Family Releases Disturbing Video Showing Police Fatally Shooting Keith Scott (VIDEO)

For the last three days and nights protests in Charlotte, North Carolina have taken place after police in that city shot and killed Keith Scott and then refused to release the video they had of the incident.

On the fourth day of the city of Charlotte refusing to release video of the deadly shooting the family of Keith Scott has chosen to release a video to NBC News showing the moment when police shoot and kill Scott taken by his wife.

In the two minutes and 12 seconds video an officer can be seen pointing a gun in Scott’s direction, screaming at him to “drop the gun.” At the same time Scott’s wife can be heard pleading with an officer not to shoot her husband...

Don’t shoot him, he has no weapon,” 

 She tells the officers that her husband has a TBI, or a traumatic brain injury sustained during a motorcycle accident in October 2015 and then assures them, “He’s not gonna do anything, he just took his medicine”.

With her pleas going unheeded police open fire on Keith Scott who then can be seen lying motionless on the ground.

After the shooting Rakeyia Scott can be heard asking officer “Did you shoot him?” and then can be heard repeating over and over..

"He'd better live, he'd better live, he'd better live,"

Here is the video...


Keith Scott was waiting in his truck for his young son to come home from school while his wife had gone inside their apartment to grab a cell phone charger. She was gone for about three minutes and began recording once she emerged from the apartment.

Tulsa Officer Charged With First-Degree Manslaughter In Shooting Of Unarmed Black Man

Earlier this week, the Tulsa police department released dash cam and helicopter footage from a deadly encounter in which officer Betty Shelby shot and killed Terence Crutcher.

Crutcher, the 40-year-old father, was gunned down as he stood next to his broken down vehicle. The incident was caught on police helicopter and dashcam video was seen in news footage with his hands in the air.

Here is the video footage taken from the helicopter...

Click image for video

Tulsa's police chief has said Crutcher was unarmed and that no weapon was found on him or in his SUV.

An understandably outraged Tulsa community held vigils and peaceful protests throughout the week calling for the arrest of the officer.

Yesterday their calls were answered as District Attorney Stephen Kunzweiler announced during at an afternoon press conference that Officer Shelby would be charged with 1st degree manslaughter...

"In the matter of the death of Terence Crutcher, I determine that the filing of the felony crime of manslaughter in the first degree against the Tulsa Police officer Betty Shelby is warranted,"

The DA found that Shelby "reacted unreasonably" and became "emotionally involved to the point that she overreacted."

An warrant has been issued for her arrest.

TRUMP SAFE FROM SATAN! Christians Lay Hands On Donald Trump To Protect Him From A “Concentrated Satanic Attack” (VIDEO)

Yesterday, at the Midwest Vision and Values Pastors Leadership Conference in Cleveland, Ohio, Christians lay hands on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to protect him from Satan.

Included in the gaggle was his vice presidential running mate Mike Pence and campaign surrogates Ben Carson, Michael Cohen and even Omarosa!

The event was hosted by devout Trumpster pastor Darrell Scott at his New Spirit Revival Center. During the proceedings Scott told the audience that a “nationally known” preacher warned Trump before he launched his campaign...

He said I want you to understand Mr. Trump that if you choose to run for president, (he sad that) there’s going to be a concentrated Satanic attack against you. He said this over five years ago, he said this. He said there’s going to be a demon, principalities and powers, that are going to war against you on a level that you’ve never seen before and I’m watching it every day. So were gonna pray for ya.

So later, just to be on the safe side, Scott’s wife Belinda prayed over Trump and asked lord Jesus...

God we ask you right now that Your choice is this choice. We believe lord god that you ordain things. You said all authority is of you. Now God I ask that you would touch this man, Donald J. Trump. Give him the anointing to lead this nation. (et cetera, et cetera, et cetera....)”

Here is a clip of the hand lay... umm... Laying o' the hands... The handling?... Anyway it is courtesy of Right Wing Watch...

Yes, this is really happening in our presidential race in the 21st century.

Trump Campaign Chairwoman Claims There Was 'No Racism' Until President Obama (VIDEO)

So here's the question: How racist and stupid is too racist and stupid to be in a Donald Trump presidential campaign.

I think we have an answer.

In an interview with The Guardian Donald Trump campaign’s chairwoman in Ohio, Kathy Miller, has claimed that she never saw "any racism" in America until the election of Barack Obama. In addition Miller insinuates tat whatever hardships have befallen African-Americans in the last 50 years is "certainly" their own fault!

So, without adieu, here is the history of how racism began in Miller's own words...

"I don’t think there was any racism until Obama got elected. We never had problems like this … If you’re black and you haven’t been successful in the last 50 years, it’s your own fault. You’ve had every opportunity, it was given to you. You’ve had the same schools everybody else went to. You had benefits to go to college that white kids didn’t have. You had all the advantages and didn’t take advantage of it. It’s not our fault, certainly."

Here is the video of Mrs. Miller's statements..



In addition to these comments Miller has also stated in her interview that the Black Lives Matter movement “a stupid waste of time” and said lower voter turnout among African Americans could be related to “the way they’re raised”.

Kathy Miller has since claimed her comments weren't racist.

In additional news she has also resigned.

Here is the statement from the Ohio Trump campaign...

Miler's replacement is Tracey Winbush, an African-American conservative radio host who has since had to take to her twitter account to delete all her anti-Trump posts.

No... Really! Not kidding. Look...

Six-Year Old's Heartbreaking Request To President Obama To Please Bring Injured Syrian Child To Be His "Brother" (VIDEO)


Alex is six years old. After seeing 5-year-old Omran Daqneesh, who was wounded in an airstrike in Aleppo Syria, Alex wrote a letter asking President Obama to help bring that boy to America so he could be his brother.

5-year-old Omran Daqneesh after being pulled out of a building hit by an airstrike in Aleppo, Syria.


Here is Alex's simple request...

"Dear President Obama,"Remember the boy who was picked up by the ambulance in Syria? Can you please go get him and bring him to my home? Park in the driveway or on the street and we will be waiting for you guys with flags, flowers, and balloons. We will give him a family and he will be our brother. Catherine, my little sister, will be collecting butterflies and fireflies for him. In my school, I have a friend from Syria, Omar, and I will introduce him to Omar. We can all play together. We can invite him to birthday parties and he will teach us another language. We can teach him English too, just like my friend Aoto from Japan. Please tell him that his brother will be Alex who is a very kind boy, just like him. Since he won't bring toys and doesn't have toys Catherine will share her big blue stripy white bunny. And I will share my bike and I will teach him how to ride it. I will teach him additions and subtractions in math. And he [can] smell Catherine's lip gloss penguin which is green. She doesn't let anyone touch it."Thank you very much! I can't wait for you to come!
"Alex
"6 years old"

In response President Obama wrote on the White House's Facebook page...

"Those are the words of a six-year-old boy — a young child who has not learned to be cynical or suspicious or fearful of other people because of where they come from, how they look, or how they pray.""We should all be more like Alex. Imagine what the world would look like if we were. Imagine the suffering we could ease and the lives we could save."

Here is Alex's request which transitions into President Obama's reading of the letter at the UN last week and his reply...

Trump Goes Off Script For Some Of His Patented African-American Outreach. It Goes About As Well As You'd Expect (VIDEO & TWEETS)

Donald Trump is feeling good. He feels emboldened. They say he's got his groove back because his poll numbers keep going up. Trump believes this boost is due to his campaign performances and thinks he should do more of what he feels got him to the top.

This of course means ditching the pre-written script and going off the teleprompter.

Feeling the presidency is well within his grasp Donald felt he should try some outreach to the segment of our population he likes to refer to as "the blacks". So today at a rally in Kenansville, North Carolina, a city named for a slave owner, Donny performed a variation on one of his classics he believes "the blacks" just love called "What The Hell Do You Have To Lose?".

Speaking to an almost all white crowd Trump's outreach to "the black" people went a little something like this...

"We're going to rebuild our inner cities because our African-American communities are absolutely in the worst shape that they've ever been in before. Ever. Ever. Ever. You take a look at the inner cities, you get no education, you get no jobs, you get shot walking down the street. They're worse, I mean honestly, places like Afghanistan are safer than some of our inner cities. And I say to the African American communities and I think it's resonating, because you see what's happening with my poll numbers with African Americans. They're going, like, high."

Here is the video of the performance...

The reaction to Trump's words was swift and oh, let's say, non-receptive...







This is not the first time Trump has played this tune. In Michigan last month he asked a once again predominantly white crowd...

What do you have to lose by trying something new, like Trump? You’re living in poverty. Your schools are no good. You have no jobs. Fifty-eight percent of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?

In June, he singled out a black supporter in the crowd at a rally pointed at him and asked the audience to...

look at my African-American over here.

Yeah? Why isn't he doing better with "the blacks"?

Donald Trump Jr. Says Something Stupid #3: Refugees Are Poisoned Skittles! (PICS) *2X Update

Monday night Donald Trump Jr., in an attempt to show just how he and his father's campaign feel about Syrian Refugees, tweeted an image comparing them of a bowl of Skittles. In the analogy Trump Jr. compares the refugees fleeing their war torn country as poisoned candy...

"If I had a bowl of Skittles and I told you three would kill you, would you take a handful? That's our Syrian refugee problem."

Here is the actual picture he tweeted of which he says: "This image says it all"...


This meme was originally posted on alt-right websites but with a different picture. Here is that image...


What I found most interesting, as do many on the internet besides me, was that Trump Jr. chose to go with Skittles as opposed to M&M's. It is believed he did this as a direct dig at Trayvon Martin who was infamously murdered while holding a bag of Skittles he had just purchased in the now infamous "Stand Your Ground" case.

Mars, the company that makes Skittles, was less than amused by junior's message and posted their feelings on the subject via this tweet...


Leave it to a nameless faceless corporation to be the only one in this mess to be the one to leave us with a little hope for humanity. Trump and his offspring appear to have little of it left to offer.

The truth is that in reality there have been 784,000 refugees who have come to the United States since September 11, 2001 and none have participated in a domestic terrorist attack.


*UPDATE: In an interesting development the photographer who took the picture of the Skittles said the picture was used without his permission and revealed that he was himself a former refugee.

By the way, this just in from Vox.com.....



George H.W. Bush Says He's Voting For Hillary Clinton (PICS)

Former President George H.W. Bush has apparently stated that come November he will be bypassing the GOP 's presidential pick and will instead be casting his vote for Hillary Clinton.

Although Bush, 92, had intended to stay silent on the presidential race it seems he could not overcome his distaste for "The Donald".

The news comes from Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, the former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy! She announced it via her Facebook page...


Well, okay then!

Jim McGrath, a spokesman for the Bush family, released a statement after the news broke saying...

The vote President Bush will cast as a private citizen in some 50 days will be just that: a private vote cast in 50 days. He is not commenting on the presidential race in the interim.

Though the Bush family has remained mum on their 2016 election voting the senior Bush did say he would not endorse Trump nor would his son George W. Bush. I think we can all be damn sure Jeb won't be backing the man who mocked him as "low energy" and ran him out of the 2016 race on a rail.

Does this endorsement make a bit of difference? Probably not but it just may cause the thin skinned Trump to take his eye of the prize and begin attacking targets that aren't Hillary Clinton.

Donald Trump Says Something Stupid # 34: Trump, Once Again, Congratulates Himself Over A Tragedy

Trump seems to really enjoy giving credit to himself... Even when its about the dead, dying or injured.

After the mass shooting murders at the Pulse Nightclub Trump tweeted...

Then when pro basketball player Dwyane Wade lamented on social media about gun violence after losing his cousin, Nykea Aldridge, to a stray bullet from a shoot-out Trump jumped at the chance to puff himself up tweeting...


Well he's done it again. Yesterday Trump took credit for "correctly" identifying, without any knowledge whether it was true or not, that the explosion in New York over the weekend was a "bomb"...

Just before I got off the plane, a bomb went off in New York"

He then intimated that it was terrorism...

"Boy, we are really in a time. We better get very tough, folks,"

Once again let me reiterate: there was no report official or otherwise that said the blast was from a "bomb" or a result of terrorism... but what the f**k amirite?

When Trump's non-factual assertion turned out to be correct he couldn't hold back on the self congratulatory back slapping. He ran straight to Fox & Friends Monday morning and exclaimed...

"What I said was exactly correct. I should be a newscaster because I called it before the news.

Trump also claimed “everybody” has said that he was right and then, in a display of complete ignorance, claimed the media's coverage of Hillary Clinton was dishonest because they gave her a pass for claiming the same thing he did...

"If you saw her in the back of the plane — and she used the word ‘bombs’ also, by the way. I heard — I didn’t see it — but I heard I was criticized for calling it correctly"

The difference was that Clinton's press conference was held at 11:00pm after she had received a briefing on the matter and it had been officially confirmed that the explosion had been caused by a "bomb" (also they had also found a second potential explosive device).

I know this incident will all get lost in the seemingly endless torrent of lies and heinous garbage that pours out of Trump's gaping pie-hole... You know, kind of like that time Trump crowed that the downed EgyptAir flight "got blown out of the sky" without citing any evidence and then tweeted...


It wasn't terrorism. Trump was wrong. He still got credit for calling out the "Radical Islamic terrorists"... And no one remembers.
