There's no Meredith McIver in Trump's June payroll reported to the FEC.

Imaginary friend?

This Trump Statement Should Disqualify This Man. He Is Unfit For Any Government Office In The USA.

“I’ve got black accountants at Trump Castle and at Trump Plaza — black guys counting my money!” O’Donnell’s book quoted Trump as saying. “I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. Those are the kind of people I want counting my money. Nobody else. . . . Besides that, I’ve got to tell you something else. I think that the guy is lazy. 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.”

Federal Appeals Court Strikes Down Texas Voter ID Law

Source: Talking Points Memo

A majority of the full U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday that the heavily litigated and controversial Texas voter ID law does have the effect of discriminating against minority voters, and ordered the state to devise a remedy to that problem before the November elections.

"We conclude that the district court did not clearly err in determining that SB 14 has a discriminatory effect on minorities’ voting rights in violation of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act," the court majority wrote.

The unexpected ruling against the Republican-backed voter ID law by the conservative appeals court came as it faced a Supreme-Court-imposed deadline of Wednesday to rule in the case.

The ruling was not a complete victory for voting rights activists. A second basis for challenging the law – that its purpose is to discriminate against minority voters – was sent back to the lower court for further review. The appeals court said the additional review should wait until after the November elections.

"Melania's passage was planted"

Trump’s double unraveling; conservatives infiltrate his inner circle - Melania's passage was planted

Some pundits have speculated that Trump’s less-than-professional campaign staff is to blame for not having caught the plagiarized passage. But such a take on the matter misses the larger point by a mile. This point is that the unidentified person who wrote Melania’s speech deliberately included the damning passage.

We can be relatively confident in this assessment because other more laudable, unstolen passages of Melania’s speech reveal that its author is by no means a complete newbie to speech-writing. We can strengthen our confidence in this by reminding ourselves that even a high school student knows what plagiarism is, and how to easily avoid it.


So, let me say it again. The person who wrote the plagiarized passage knew what he or she was doing while penning it, and while giving it to Melania. Who would do such an underhanded thing? In pondering this, keep in mind how much of an embarrassment Donald Trump is to the Conservative Party. Also keep in mind that many conservatives are quite reasonably terrified of Trump winning the presidency. They are terrified that a Trump presidency will spell the end of the modern conservative movement. So, as insurance against failing to unseat Trump at the convention, one or more conservatives infiltrated Trump’s campaign with the single-minded aim of sabotaging his chances of winning. We all know what conservatives are capable of. As we move into the last four months of the campaign, trusting that his people truly are his people will now be quite a problem for Trump. But that’s not his only problem.

Melania lied when she said she wrote the speech. It’s not like it’s possible that she lied, or that she may have lied. She very obviously lied. And now, in order to defend her honor, her husband, who knows far better than anyone else that his wife did not write that speech, has very obviously lied. Trump had been hoping that media reporting on the Republican Convention would focus on Hillary’s trustworthiness. But now that hope is forever dashed. Most people will not believe someone who has been so red-handedly caught in a lie, especially when that someone is running for president of the United States. And these same people will conclude that the last thing our country needs right now is a pathetically transparent liar who is also not smart enough to prevent conservative saboteurs from infiltrating his inner circle, and destroying his campaign.
