US Secret Service being advertised as 'new amenity' in apartment sales at Trump Tower

The U.S. Secret Service is the hot, new "amenity" in the Trump Tower, where desperate brokers are trying to lure well-heeled clients into the building on Fifth Avenue that has served as President-elect Donald Trump’s home as well as his campaign and transition headquarters.

Less than a week after Trump was elected, prominent New York real estate agency Douglas Elliman blasted out an e-mail with the subject: “Fifth Avenue Buyers Interested in Secret Service Protection?” to advertise a $2.1 million, 1,052-square-foot condo in the tower on 721 Fifth Avenue.

"The New Aminity – The United States Secret Service," screamed the flier sent in an e-mail on Nov. 13 for a one-bedroom apartment on the 31st floor, represented by brokers Ariel Sassoon and Devin Leahy.

As hard as Trump works to distance himself from his businesses, there may be no way of getting around other business associates using his brand for their own opportunity.

the article explains that most of the building are condos owned by private parties, and this newest advert is not from Trump himself.

Alabama man loses job for calling Gatlinburg fire victims 'toothless, pond scum' Trump supporters

An Alabama man who referred to residents of Gatlinburg as "mouth-breathing, toothless, Trump-suckin' pond scum" in the wake of last week's deadly wildfires has lost his job and been targeted by social media users as a possible suspect in the blaze.

On Nov. 29, Coleman Bonner of Wessington in Chilton County posted a message to his personal Facebook page in regards to the wildfires in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevier County, Tennessee.
"Funny story. I was recently in Gatlinburg. Had a terrible time. I felt the place was a cesspool of consumerism and a bastion of the worst aspect of southern culture. Turns out a wildfire just burned most of the town to the ground. Good riddance, Gatlinburg. And good luck you mouth-breathing, toothless, diabetic, cousin-humpin,' mountain-dew chugging, moon-pie-munchin,' pall-mall smoking,', Trump-suckin' pond scum. (Chuckles and smiles like the smarmy liberal elitist I am," Bonner wrote.

The post came just days after as many as 14,000 people were evacuated from Gatlinburg and the surrounding area after a wildfire on the Great Smoky Mountain National Park's Chimneys Top 2 Trail spread into the tourist town. As many as 17,000 acres have burned, 1,700 structures have been damaged or destroyed and 14 people have died as a result of the blaze.

Shortly after his post, Bonner's employer, Express Oil Change and Tire Engineers, began receiving messages about the statements.
Express Oil Change said after "fully and thoroughly" investigating the situation, Coleman is no longer employed with the Birmingham-based company.


Oh jeez...now he is acting like The Godfather and threatening "retribution"

using a running series of Tweets, he sez

but any business that leaves our country for another country,.........then thinks it will sell its product back into the U.S. ........
without retribution or consequence, is WRONG!

Tweets can be found here: at the 12 hour time stamp about 6 Tweets down...

and said this bluster re: china:
Did China ask us if it was OK to devalue their currency (making it hard for our companies to compete), heavily tax our products going into
their country (the U.S. doesn't tax them) or to build a massive military complex in the middle of the South China Sea? I don't think so!

The supposedly next Pres. of USA is tweeting his foreign policy and thumbing his nose at China ....on Twitter.

Horrible scene from War on Christmas internment camp

"only three companies rank among the top 30 polluters of America's air,water and climate:"

ExxonMobil, American Electric Power and Koch Industries.

Thanks in part to its 2005 purchase of paper-mill giant Georgia-Pacific, Koch Industries dumps more pollutants into the nation's waterways than General Electric and International Paper combined.
The company ranks 13th in the nation for toxic air pollution. Koch's climate pollution, meanwhile, outpaces oil giants including Valero, Chevron and Shell. Across its businesses, Koch generates 24 million metric tons of greenhouse gases a year.

excellent Rolling Stone article on Koch brothers and all the ways they contribute to the financial, environmental, political misery in this country.

"the last time a politician held victory celebrations in his own honor,............"

the last time a politician held victory celebrations in his own honor, they were called the Nuremberg Rallies.

They began after the Nazis’ rise to power in 1933 and became a yearly event emblematic of the power of the regime’s propaganda machine.

Each year, the rallies grew larger and more impressive, and Hitler’s speeches became progressively more sinister.

So no, you don’t remember this happening. This is unusual.

Look, the point of this article is not to flippantly shout “Look, Trump is Hitler!” Rather, it is to point out that certain types of leaders behave in certain types of ways and we must always be vigilant and conscious of historical parallels as they present themselves. Past is prelude. History repeats itself.

Presidents-elect typically spend this time focused not on gloating and getting back out among the fawning crowds, but on the very serious and difficult task of preparing to do the job of President of the United States. Sometimes they even hold press conferences, something Trump has not done for 127 days (as of this writing).
