    JUST LEAKED; TRUMP FORCES ALL FEDERAL EMPLOYEES TO WATCH FOX NEWS (TWEETS/IMAGES)

    BY REBECCA AZOR NEWS MAY 5, 2017

    Donald Trump uses his power to take away freedom from people, once again! In his latest bigot move, the President forces all Federal employees to watch his favorite channel at work. You guessed it, Fox News!

    “A decision from the current administration administrative officials has requested that all monitors, under our control, on the White Oak Campus, display FOX news. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I am unable to change any of the monitors to any other news source at this time.”

    [/QUOTE]

    OK let me preface this by saying I do not have cable I do not watch FOXNews CNN MSNBC or any other mainstream news that being said just the facts please

    Donna Brazile, formerly employed by CNN until she resigned in disgrace was giving Hillary the debate questions in advance.

    CNN repeatedly ran unsubstantiated and biased stories prior to the election in order to skew the results toward cunt face Hillary

    I love that Trump shoves their hypocrisy up their ass at every opportunity

    TRUMP TRANSITION TEAM COPIED CLASSIFIED CIA DOCUMENTS ABOUT RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR (DETAILS)


    BY JOHN PRAGER NEWS MAY 6, 2017

    The Associated Press reports something rather distressing: the Trump transition team mishandled classified information so badly that President Obama was forced to limit their access to it.

    According to the report, an unnamed member of Team Trump made an unusual request of the Obama White House’s security team: a copy of the classified CIA profile of a man with whom numerous members of the transition team secretly met, Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

    Now, the first thing running through your mind is probably “which member?” If you guessed Michael Flynn, you’re only wrong because he sent someone to do his bidding:

    Marshall Billingslea, a former Pentagon and NATO official, wanted the information for his boss, Michael Flynn, who had been tapped by Trump to serve as White House national security adviser. Billingslea knew Flynn would be speaking to Kislyak, according to two former Obama administration officials, and seemed concerned Flynn did not fully understand he was dealing with a man rumored to have ties to Russian intelligence agencies.

    To the Obama White House, Billingslea’s concerns were startling: a member of Trump’s own team suggesting the incoming Trump administration might be in over its head in dealing with an adversary.

    The request now stands out as a warning signal for Obama officials who would soon see Flynn’s contacts with the Russian spiral into a controversy that would cost him his job and lead to a series of shocking accusations hurled by Trump against his predecessor’s administration.
    Over the following few weeks, the Obama administration became concerned as more and more information about Trump’s team and Russia became known. Ultimately, the administration chose not to withhold information from Trump’s team over their gross mishandling (at minimum) of classified misinformation, but they did take precautions:

    The outgoing White House also became concerned about the Trump team’s handling of classified information. After learning that highly sensitive documents from a secure room at the transition’s Washington headquarters were being copied and removed from the facility, Obama’s national security team decided to only allow the transition officials to view some information at the White House, including documents on the government’s contingency plans for crises.

    Some White House advisers now privately concede that the administration moved too slowly during the election to publicly blame Russia for the hack and explore possible ties to the Trump campaign. Others say it was only after the election, once Obama ordered a comprehensive review of the election interference, that the full scope of Russia’s interference and potential Trump ties become clearer.
    Recently, Flynn begged for immunity in exchange for his testimony with regard to Team Trump’s Russia connections. He was told to f*ck off.

    Naturally, Americans find this news a teensy bit upsetting:

    Facts ... Did ya say .. ???

    REPUBLICANS ANTICIPATING 2018 ELECTION JUST GOT SOME REALLY, REALLY BAD NEWS (IMAGE)

    BY PATTI COLLI NEWS MAY 6, 2017

    The Republican Party has been so desperate for a win under Donald Trump that they were willing to pass a clearly horrible health care bill just to get a quick legislative win. On Thursday, the American Health Care Act (also known as Trumpcare), passed 217-213 – but there’s actually very little to celebrate. Besides the fact that millions of Americans are closer to losing their health insurance now, the GOP has just screwed itself in the 2018 elections.


    Thanks to the unpopularity of Trumpcare, Democrats will now have at least one massive reason to trash Republicans in the 2018 elections. Americans will remember that the GOP was willing to pass a health care bill that only 17% of the public actually wanted, and continue their agenda to take away Obamacare even though most Americans reject that decision. In fact, many Republicans didn’t even read the bill they voted on – that’s how desperate they were.

    What Republicans didn’t not realize was that they would make it easier than ever for Democrats to recruit candidates. As Donald Trump’s historically low approval rating continues to plummet, the GOP’s pathetic move to replace and repeal Obamacare continues to be less popular still.

    The Cook Political Report stated that for many Republicans, adding their names to the passing of the American Health Care Act could take a massive political toll – and we’re already seeing evidence of this. After the American Health Care Act was voted on, The Cook shifted its ratings in a national poll to show changes in 20 districts – all of which benefited Democrats. While 18 months can be an awfully long time in politics and anything can change, the new ratings reflect just how badly the Republican Party has screwed itself over with its sloppy health care bill.

    You can view the new ratings below:

    WATCH: REPUBLICAN GETS ANGRILY BOOED FOR CLAIMING PEOPLE DON’T DIE FROM LACK OF HEALTHCARE

    BY STEPHEN D. FOSTER JR. NEWS MAY 6, 2017
    SHARES

    People know what bullshit smells like, so when Idaho Rep. Raul Labrador opened his mouth his constituents booed what was coming out.

    On Thursday, House Republicans had beer delivered to the Capitol so they could drink in celebration of stripping healthcare from millions of Americans and sentencing thousands of Americans to death.

    The Trumpcare bill will allow insurance companies to throw people off their insurance coverage and to price people out of the market. This is especially true for senior citizens, whose health insurance premiums are expected to skyrocket if the Affordable Care Act is repealed.

    House Republicans then went to the White House to celebrate in the Rose Garden with Donald Trump.

    It was a disgusting display. Lawmakers literally celebrated taking healthcare away from the American people. Even Joe Scarborough expressed his disgust over the sickening affair.

    And now Republicans know how their own constituents feel.

    Because during a town hall event in Idaho on Friday, the people who are represented by Rep. Raul Labrador mercilessly booed him and shouted him down after he made the ridiculous claim that people don’t die because of a lack of healthcare.

    A woman in the crowd stepped up and told Labrador that she is concerned about all the people who will be faced with dying because the Republican bill kicks them off Medicaid. That’s when Labrador spewed bullshit directly out of his mouth.

    “That line is so indefensible,” Labrador claimed. “Nobody dies because they don’t have access to health care.”

    The audience gasped in shock and anger.

    Here’s the video via YouTube.



    The fact is, however, that people do die from lack of healthcare.

    A Harvard study found that as many as 45,000 Americans die every year from lack of healthcare. Even if 45,000 is inaccurate, Labrador is wrong to say that “no one” dies from not having access to healthcare.

    Prior to the Affordable Care Act, millions of Americans couldn’t afford health insurance and they certainly couldn’t afford out-of-pocket medical care. Basically, they had to wait until their health issues became an emergency before seeking expensive treatment at the emergency room. And now Republicans have passed a bill that will once again make health insurance and medical care inaccessible to millions. And that means certain death for thousands.

    And when people start dying, Republicans who voted for this bill should be charged with murder. Period.

    WHILE TRUMP CRACKS DOWN ON POOR IMMIGRANTS JARED KUSHNER IS OPENLY TAKING BRIBES FOR VISAS

    BY WENDY GITTLESON NEWSMAY 6, 2017

    With Donald Trump, there are two classes of people; there are the super-rich, who Trump sees as cash cows, even while serving in the White House, and there are the rest of us.

    There are even two sets of laws. If an immigrant is poor, under Donald Trump they could end up losing their family. If an immigrant is rich, though, they can hand Trump’s son-in-law a check (or shall we call it a real estate investment *wink wink*) for $500,000 and he will be given a visa.

    Kushner’s sister told a ballroom full of Chinese investors that if they purchase a condo from the Kushner family, they will be granted a huge government favor — an EB-5 investor visa, which is designed to allow job creators into the country with the potential of permanent residency. The future of the program is uncertain under a Trump presidency, so the Kushners are apparently offering that certain people will be grandfathered in, if they invest in the right place. Of course, this was said in the back of the room, away from cameras and reporters. In fact, at one point, the media was forced to leave the event.

    In the ballroom of the Ritz-Carlton on Saturday, Chinese investors were advised to invest sooner rather than later in case the rules change. “Invest early and you will invest under the old rules,” one speaker said.

    The woman identified as “Jared’s sister” was believed to be Nicole Kushner, who is involved in the family business, not Dara Kushner, who generally stays out of the spotlight. But the woman’s face was not clearly visible from the back of the ballroom, where reporters were told to remain.

    Independent
    The Chinese brochure advertising the event, which was hosted by the company Qiaowai, which hooks Chinese investors up with American companies, said, “Invest $500,000 and immigrate to the United States.” It’s that simple and that blatant.

    It gets worse, though. The $500,000 wouldn’t be used to start new businesses or to invest in fledgling startups. Qiaowai is partnering with the Kushners in a large real estate project in New Jersey.

    To be fair, the project is projected to create more than 6,000 jobs, but that’s not the appeal to the Chinese investors. They cite access to the President as the main appeal, although some are hesitant. They too follow American politics and they are fully aware that being associated with Trump’s name can be toxic.

    “Even though this is the project of the son-in-law’s family, of course it is still affiliated,” (Investor) Wang (Yun).

    Wang reasoned that the link to Trump would be a boon if the presidency goes well but could be disastrous if it does not: “We heard that there are rumours that he is the most likely to be impeached president in American history. That’s why I doubt this project.”
    Of course, one of the reasons Trump could be impeached if for reasons exactly like this.

    The EB-5 visa program began in 1990 and it was designed to help our, at that time, struggling economy by creating jobs. The visas are available to wealthy people who invest at least $500,000 in a company that would use it to create at least 10 full time jobs in high unemployment or rural areas. It’s a very popular program, but it’s also virtually unregulated. You can read a lot more about the program here.

    This appears to be the first time that a representative of a sitting president has offered visas for pay. During the Obama administration, one Chinese investor hired former Obama strategist David Axelrod’s brother Michael as his lawyer. The scheme didn’t work. The SEC soon cracked down.

    As for Kushner, his position as one of Trump’s top influencers is neither elected nor confirmed by the Senate, but he is required to abide by the same ethics laws and guidelines as anyone who has been elected or confirmed. This appears to be a clear violation of the Emoluments clause, which states that public officials cannot accept payment from foreign governments.

    Sounds to me like normal type of Business going on in the White House ....

    TRUMP’S PRIDE CRUMBLES AS POPE FRANCIS GIVES HIM A SCOLDING HE’LL NEVER FORGET (DETAILS)


    BY PATTI COLLI NEWSMAY 6, 2017

    Pope Francis has been an outspoken critic of Donald Trump before, and on Friday he gave Trump a tongue lashing the undeserving POTUS will never forget.

    During Trump’s short presidency, the trigger-happy, unstable businessman has ordered two major military strikes – a missile strike on an air base in Syria and the Massive Ordinance Air Blast (MOAB) bomb in Afghanistan. Trump couldn’t have been more pleased with himself for ordering the MOAB and quickly bragged about it to reporters shortly after the attack:

    “We are so proud of our military. It was another successful event. Everybody knows exactly what happened. What I do, is I authorize my military. We have given them total authorization. Frankly, that’s why they’ve been so successful lately.”
    As the MOAB is the most dangerous non-nuclear weapon our country possesses, it should never have been used this recklessly – and Pope Francis nailed Trump for it. On Friday, Pope Francis spoke to a group of children and criticized America’s president for ordering the “Mother Of All Bombs”, the nickname given to the MOAB. Pope Francis said:

    “I was ashamed when I heard the name. A mother gives life and this one gives death, and we call this device a mother. What is happening?”
    It’s not hard to see that Pope Francis is aiming his words directly at Trump – and this isn’t the first time. He’s previously bashed Trump’s disgusting border wall, stating in February 2016:

    “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. I say only that this man is not Christian if he has said things like that.”
    Earlier this year, Pope Francis had slammed Trump again over his Muslim travel ban:

    “In the social and civil context as well, I appeal not to create walls, but to build bridges. To not respond to evil with evil. To defeat evil with good, the offense with forgiveness. A Christian would never say ‘you will pay for that.’ Never.”
    It’s obvious that Pope Francis does not approve of Trump’s dictator-like way of governing and hates his violent way of solving issues. As Trump continues to get more arrogant in his way of dealing with world conflicts, we’re sure this won’t be the last time Pope Francis scolds Trump.

    PAUL RYAN JUST GOT CAUGHT IN A VERY UNFORTUNATE PHOTO OP; TWITTER GOES INSANE

    BY WENDY GITTLESON NEWSMAY 6, 2017

    Paul Ryan, who’s apparently still recovering from his post-take everyone’s insurance away stupor, or perhaps still riding the high, apparently forgot to read the t-shirt of a man he posed for a photograph with and now Twitter isn’t letting him forget it.


    The shirt, which said, “Repeal and go fuck yourself,” was worn by a young man who likely got it through the podcast called “Pod Save America,” which is hosted by several former Obama White House staffers.

    No one deserves this more than the incredibly smug Paul Ryan, who somehow thought it was appropriate to celebrate stripping millions of people of their health insurance by chugging Bud Light and playing the Rocky theme song.

    You can be sure, though, that Ryan won’t be taking any pictures with people whose t-shirts he hasn’t first read. As for the professional level troll, kudos. Hopefully he’ll reveal his identity soon.

    The New GOP, not unlike New Country Music and New Coke, has really been embarrassing to us life long Republicans, but this takes the cake.

    In particular I loved the post making it clear that, just like the Trumpcare bill, Ryan didn't bother to read the t-shirt before acting.

    SHADY TRUMP JUST DELETED THE EPA’S WEBSITE; CHICAGO MAYOR HAS THE BEST RESPONSE

    BY ZAHRA SHATI NEWS MAY 6, 2017

    For decades now, both the Republican and Democratic parties accepted and provided climate change data through the EPA. Of course, Donald Trump has to make himself stand out somehow. The so-called president has attempted to erase every ounce of evidence provided by scientists in regards to climate change.


    Chicago’s mayor Rahm Emanuel, who happen to serve as Obama’s first chief of staff back in 2011, responded to the Trump administration’s cowardly move by putting up his own website.

    According to Politco, the new section of the City of Chicago’s website, launched this weekend, pulls actual data from the archived Environmental Protection Agency page, noting:

    “While this information may not be readily available on the agency’s webpage right now, here in Chicago we know climate change is real and we will continue to take action to fight it.”
    The Chicago mayor is promising to build the site out more in the coming weeks, using city resources. The best part? He is going against the Trump administration. Emanuel stated:

    “The Trump administration can attempt to erase decades of work from scientists and federal employees on the reality of climate change, but burying your head in the sand doesn’t erase the problem.”
    Evidently, Emanuel has more common sense than the entire Trump cabinet combined.
    He reminds America that we cannot let the government dictate what happens to our planet–it’s up to us to fight back.

    NOT A SINGLE REPUBLICAN HAS THE BALLS TO EXPLAIN THEIR HEALTHCARE VOTE TO MSNBC (VIDEO)

    BY APRIL HAMLIN NEWS MAY 6, 2017

    A total of 217 Republicans voted in favor of the heinous GOP health care bill. But, shamefully, not a single one of them had the guts to explain their vote to MSNBC.


    According to Joy Reid, host of MSNBC’s AM JOY, the producers of the show invited every one of these 217 Republicans to come on the show to explain to Americans just why it was that they voted for the American Health Care Act.

    “My tireless producers reached out to each and every one of them to ask them to join us today,” Reid said as their names flashed across the screen.

    “I offered each of them the lead spot on this show this morning, to the one-on-one with me, to explain why they voted for the bill. And not a single one agreed … all those names,” she continued.

    “217 people, no takers. Not a one,” she added. “Such bravery.”

    The CBO estimated that a prior version of the bill would result in 24 million people losing their insurance coverage. However, the bill that House Republicans pushed through last week did away with protections for pre-existing conditions. And, since the CBO didn’t get the chance to investigate the ramifications of that bill before it was rushed to a vote, we really don’t know how many people stand to lose their access to medical care under Trumpcare. With states able to allow insurance companies to charge sick people as much as they please and price those who need health care the most out of coverage altogether, many more people could lose their coverage than previously estimated.

    Republicans were willing to vote in favor of this bill no matter how cruel and heartless it is, without even reading it, just so they could claim a win. But not one of them has the balls to stand up in front of the American people and explain that vote.



    Not one. What a bunch of cowards.

    One Of America’s Largest Cities Just Voted To Impeach Trump

    BY BRIAN TYLER COHEN PUBLISHED ON MAY 6, 2017

    The Los Angeles City Council just passed a resolution demanding an investigation into “potentially impeachable offenses by President Donald Trump.”

    The resolution passed the City Council 10 to 0, calling for “support for any legislative action” to investigate Trump’s possible violation of the Foreign Emoluments Clause of the Constitution. Los Angeles joins other major cities that have passed similar resolutions, including Berkeley, Alameda, and Richmond, California; Charlotte, Vermont; and Cambridge, Massachusetts.

    Los Angeles City Council member Bob Blumenfield (D-San Fernando Valley), said:

    “We must demand that Congress use its power to investigate. With this resolution, the city of Los Angeles calls on our Congress members and senators for the good of the country to investigate Trump’s international finances and make sure that he is actually working on behalf of the American people and not his own pocketbook.”
    Blumenfield added that it’s “not about any of his policies that I and many of us here find completely odious. This is about conflict of interest.”

    Since becoming President, Trump has funneled over $14 million back into Trump-owned properties. It was interesting timing, as well, that Trump invited Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte to visit the White House just as a Trump-branded hotel was set to open in Manila, Philippines. Those, of course, are only the tip of the iceberg.

    As Trump continues to exploit our government to enrich his family and company, local efforts to rein in his power are more important now than ever.
    Kudos to Los Angeles for stepping in and doing the job the federal government is too afraid to do.

    SHADY TRUMP JUST DELETED THE EPA’S WEBSITE; CHICAGO MAYOR HAS THE BEST RESPONSE

    BY ZAHRA SHATI NEWS MAY 6, 2017

    For decades now, both the Republican and Democratic parties accepted and provided climate change data through the EPA. Of course, Donald Trump has to make himself stand out somehow. The so-called president has attempted to erase every ounce of evidence provided by scientists in regards to climate change.


    Chicago’s mayor Rahm Emanuel, who happen to serve as Obama’s first chief of staff back in 2011, responded to the Trump administration’s cowardly move by putting up his own website.

    According to Politco, the new section of the City of Chicago’s website, launched this weekend, pulls actual data from the archived Environmental Protection Agency page, noting:

    “While this information may not be readily available on the agency’s webpage right now, here in Chicago we know climate change is real and we will continue to take action to fight it.”
    The Chicago mayor is promising to build the site out more in the coming weeks, using city resources. The best part? He is going against the Trump administration. Emanuel stated:

    “The Trump administration can attempt to erase decades of work from scientists and federal employees on the reality of climate change, but burying your head in the sand doesn’t erase the problem.”
    Evidently, Emanuel has more common sense than the entire Trump cabinet combined.
    He reminds America that we cannot let the government dictate what happens to our planet–it’s up to us to fight back.
    Hahaha thank the good lord and mr ford chicagos mayor has something to bitch about...... other than the (over 1000 people shot so far this year according to mainstream media which mr dragstews holds so highly) shot in his DEMOCRATIC FUCKING CITY WHICH IS RULED BY THE DEMOCRATS as per 2017 popular vote. So I guess we should be happy those 1000+ people (barring anyone that has been shot twice) have healthcare that covers their gang activity and turf wars. So when push comes to shove, according to liberal logic when someone gets shot in Chicago I can send the bill to the democrats? Easy math..... 1000 people shot this year x 10,0000 medical bill (which really only covers the ambulance bill) plus drugs and after care = 10,000,000 dollars. Conservitavely speaking of course. And you fuckin cock suckers wanna talk about how republicans let people die? Dig your head out of the sand, realize you can't make a career out of jacking off or flipping burgers and go out and get yourself a real job. If the government collapsed tomorrow, me and mine would be ok. Would you? (The clintons don't own a knucklehead that needs rebuilt, so your slave labor is equal to nada.) and Soros (who is proven to pull your little puppet strings) doesn't need you to jack his dick either. So jump down off your high horse where the democrats made you THINK you sit, and get down on your knees and start sucking where they got you working where you belong.

    That would make 70 cities exactly the same as Chicago every fuckin year costing us money. Take away the guns? Responsible gun owners don't get shot as a majority.

    Explain one policy pertaining to black on black crime as a statistic to lower medical costs and the fiscal cost of violence a year. Show me one ounce of proof vs the hundreds of videos showing trump supporters to be racists vs th antifa democrats saying we're racists. There's bad apples both directions, but I have yet to hear that any fraction of a percentage of trump supporters are racist without resorting to "mysoginistic racist nazi pigs". Get the fuck out of here with that bullshit. Dragstews, you stood up for yourself in one post (out of 59 pages) with your own opinions... an I slow clap for that and for you for actually giving anyone with half a brain a reason to respect your political views... but let's face it.. you people can't conclude that trump has done anything other than try to get shit straight in this fucked up world... like I said before, if you got a way to do this shit better, then go and do it better. If all you got is to copy and paste and bitch, you're a low down whining little bitch and you're gonna fade to black quicker than anyone you're gonna criticize. Congrats for your opinion, but you can't beat a dead horse for 60 pages no matter how hard your masters whip, and no matter how hard you try.

    Trump Claims He is Saving Us Money By Going Golfing This Weekend

    By Hrafnkell Haraldsson on Fri, May 5th, 2017 at 1:24 pm

    "Rather than causing a big disruption in N.Y.C., I will be working out of my home in Bedminster, N.J. this weekend. Also saves country money!"

    Trump Claims He is Saving Us Money By Going Golfing This Weekend
    Trump’s lie that Trumpcare is great healthcare rather than a tax break fro the rich wasn’t his only lie of the day. Because the liar-in-chief went on another golf outing last night, he had to add some early morning justification for his failure to report for duty in the White House:

    Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump
    Rather than causing a big disruption in N.Y.C., I will be working out of my home in Bedminster, N.J. this weekend. Also saves country money!
    9:02 AM - 5 May 2017

    If Trump meant he is doing us all a favor by not doing his job, then he’s on to something because nobody seriously believes he’s working from his home in N.J. and if he’s not working he can’t hurt any of us.

    The truth is, he doesn’t want to go anywhere near New York City, a city that hates him with a purple passion, protesters lining the streets and waiting outside Trump Tower to welcome him home.

    And he is far from saving the taxpayers money with these repeated golf outings just because he owns the golf course. In fact, the opposite is true.

    The American people own the White House. Perhaps it doesn’t have a golden toilet, but it’s where he is supposed to be right now. At least pretending to be president.

    He would save us money if he’d stay in the officially designated residence of the President of the United States but it lacks a golf course.

    In a sad and more than slightly pathetic way, it is probably fitting that he won’t, because Donald J. Trump is not really the president, after all.

    Donald Trump, Trump Avoiding New York City, Trump Claims Golfing Saves Public Money, Trump Criticized Obama for Golfing, Trump Golfing, Trump lies, Trump tweets, Trump’s Golf Hypocrisy

    Of course, Trump is full of shit. His wife is already holed up in Trump Tower wasting millions of dollars on security for herself. And that security is already disruptive. It wouldn’t have made much difference if Trump stayed with her.

    The real reason why Trump didn’t want to stay in New York City is because he would have faced massive protests in the wake of celebrating House Republicans passing his Trumpcare bill that strips healthcare from millions of Americans.

    Trump was apparently stung by the criticism and lashed out on Saturday by repeating his claim that he is only staying in New Jersey to save money and avoid disrupting people’s lives despite having no problem disrupting people’s lives and wasting millions of dollars going to his Florida resort nearly every weekend since taking office. Trump also claimed that he was there to take meetings.

    The American people were quick to rip him a new one, especially since Trump got caught playing golf instead of working.

    Donald Trump is a hypocrite, a liar, and lazy. It’s time for him and his entire administration to be impeached.

    UNHINGED TRUMP DISPLAYS THE ULTIMATE PROJECTION, ACCUSES DEMOCRATS OF BEING RUSSIAN STOOGES (TWEET)

    BY SHANNON BARBER NEWS MAY 7, 2017

    Donald Trump is displaying his amazing ability to project his own flaws on others again. Just as the Acting Attorney General he fired for not enforcing his Muslim ban is about to testify before Congress regarding disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s lies about his relationships with the Russians, Trump goes on Twitter and accused the Democrats of being Russian stooges. On Sunday morning, Trump’s Twitter fingers were alight bright and early, as they often are when he isn’t being supervised by less impulsive staffers. With the investigation into Trump’s campaign’s ties to the Russian government and possible attempts at collusion to fix the 2016 presidential election, Trump attacked the media for linking him to Russia instead of, as he seems to believe they should have, the Democrats:


    When will the Fake Media ask about the Dems dealings with Russia & why the DNC wouldn’t allow the FBI to check their server or investigate?

    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 7, 2017
    Of course, this makes no sense at all. Vladimir Putin HATES Hillary Clinton, because during her time at the State Department, she called his election process out as fraudulent. It is widely believed in intelligence circles that this was a huge reason that Putin so brazenly meddled in the United States elections – so that he could stick it to Hillary Clinton and install Donald Trump as his puppet in the White House. Of course, Trump’s thin skin cannot take the idea that he had help winning this election, or that he would need it. His ego won’t allow even the entertainment of such an idea.

    Well, his ego won’t help him in these ongoing congressional investigations and hearings. The truth will come out, and there’s already an awful lot of smoke. It’s not the Democrats who are Russian stooges, Donnie Boy. It’s you and your incompetent cronies. We all know it. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and when the truth comes out you and your people will be dragged from the people’s house in handcuffs, just as you should be. It’s only a matter of time.

    The digging into Trump's background continued ....


    ERIC TRUMP CONFIRMS THAT HIS FATHER IS A RUSSIAN STOOGE (DETAILS)

    BY RIKA CHRISTENSEN NEWSMAY 7, 2017

    It’s not hard to know that Donald Trump lied every single time he tried to play off his connections to Russia. But now, a reporter who wrote a story on Trump and his golf courses, and spoke to his son, Eric, is spilling the truth about that, and that truth comes from Eric Trump himself.


    James Dodson, who co-wrote famous golfer Arnold Palmer’s memoir, spent a day hitting the links in North Carolina with Eric about three years ago. Dodson was curious as to how The Donald was funding his golf course purchases and renovations, and he wanted to know how they were funding all of that since American banks hadn’t touched golf courses since the 2008 financial crash.

    Eric said:

    ‘Well, we don’t rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia.’ I said, ‘Really?’ And he said, ‘Oh, yeah. We’ve got some guys that really, really love golf, and they’re really invested in our programs. We just go there all the time.’ Now that was three years ago, so it was pretty interesting.
    Well, there it is. Trump’s golf course projects have been bankrolled by Russia. That puts Trump in debt to Russian entities who are controlled by the state (meaning Putin). And Trump loudly proclaimed back in January that he had no dealings with Russia. No deals or loans or anything except this meaningless sale:

    You know the closest I came to Russia, I bought a house a number of years ago in Palm Beach, Fla. There was a man who went bankrupt and I bought the house for $40 million and I sold it to a Russian for $100 million including brokerage commissions. So I sold it. So I bought it for 40, I sold it for 100 to a Russian. That was a number of years ago.
    Eric, however, admitted that they were paying roughly $100 million for all those courses they were buying and renovating. That is a lot of Russian financing. Furthermore, Jared Kushner was meeting with a Russian banker, whose bank we slapped with sanctions back in 2014, during the transition.

    Combine that with Eric’s revelation and his father’s blatantly obvious lies, and things really don’t look good.
