Donald Trump's "Blind Trust" Plan Makes No Sense

By Kurt Eichenwald
Newsweek Magazine
September 20, 2016


Like a political Elmer Gantry, Donald Trump goes from city to city, proclaiming that only he can save America, spinning outrageous statements and spewing lies before heading off to his next revival meeting.

Serious questions about his candidacy for the presidency are left unanswered or blurred under a flurry of deceit.

Confronted with the Newsweek cover story detailing numerous potential conflicts of interest between his foreign business dealings and American national security should he be elected, Trump and his children responded with a litany of nonsensical claims.
There would be no conflicts, he said, because he would put his company,
the Trump Organization, in a blind trust.
Then he would sever his connections with the business.

With both answers, though, he and his children would run the company.
Then his daughter, Ivanka Trump, a fashion designer and former model, jumped in with her goofy explanation, saying she and her siblings would figure out how to avoid deals that might cause conflicts of interest for their father.

The onslaught of words for the uninformed, may have sounded persuasive.
Voters could be excused for thinking the Trumps had solved the problem.
They haven't.
Worse, if the Trumps believe what they are saying, there is no question a President Trump would be America's most conflicted chief executive, forcing the United States to confront a problem that would be unprecedented.

Trump Child Rape Case Dismissed; New Lawsuit To Be Filed

NOTE: For background information on this civil rape lawsuit filed in New York District Court by Katie Johnson ("Jane Doe"), against Donald Trump and his friend, Jeffrey Epstein, click on link to this OP from July 21, 2016
(Also see links to articles at the bottom of this OP)

"Here are All the times Donald Trump has been accused of rape or attempted rape"
http://www.democraticunderground.com/1016166395


The Initial Conference for this case was set for 9/9/2016 at 3:15 PM in Courtroom 1506, 40 Centre Street, New York, NY 10007.
However, in order to provide the Plaintiff (Katie Johnson) more time to serve Defendants with copies of the summons and complaint, the Initial Conference was moved back to October 14 at 10 AM.

UPDATE TRUMP CHILD RAPE CASE DISMISSED, NEW LAWSUIT TO BE FILED


The ..rape case against Donald J. Trump has been dismissed at the request of the Plaintiff and her lawyer,(Thomas Meagher)

Meagher filed to voluntarily dismiss due to a new witness having come forward that reinforces the allegations made by Jane Doe.
In the dismissed case, Jane Doe, aka Katie Johnson, alleged that Donald Trump raped her in 1994 when she was 13-years-old.

Here's the request for dismissal:
"The plaintiff and her counsel in Jane Doe v Donald J. Trump and Jeffrey E. Epstein filed today a Notice of Voluntary Dismissal pursuant to F.R.C.P. 41 (a)(1)(A)(i) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, without prejudice for refiling the complaint."

NOTICE OF VOLUNTARY DISMISSAL
http://www.pacermonitor.com/public/case/12206367/Doe_v_Trump_et_al


(More from irontroll.com)

Considering that this lawsuit hasn't even begun yet, it's been pretty unusual so far.
Jane Doe originally filed in California...Unfortunately, she filed by herself, without hiring an attorney, and filed her lawsuit as a civil rights case.
The judge dismissed the case without prejudice because Doe did not state what specific civil right was involved.
Jane Doe found herself a lawyer and refiled again in New York, a better idea since it's the jurisdiction of Donald Trump and his co-defendant Jeffrey Epstein.
A preliminary hearing was originally scheduled in early September, but when neither Trump nor Epstein replied to subpoenas, it was rescheduled for October 14.

Mainstream media has largely ignored the rape lawsuit; but perhaps with the additional witness a solid case can be made against Mr Trump.
With two eyewitnesses now supporting Jane Doe's allegations, perhaps MSM will take a closer look.

A pedophile president will not Make America Great Again.

NOTE: I know little about the website "irontroll.com"..however, as of 5 PM PDT, 9/20/16,
this is the ONLY website I have found that has this new information about why this case has been temporarily dismissed

Donald Trump, the Unsinkable Candidate

New York Times
By Declan Walsh
September 20, 2016


This American presidential election is a dizzying wonder: a torrent of outrages, gaffes and prime-time drama, where one story blurs into the next, most of it driven by the Republican contender, Donald J. Trump.

With such a ferocious pace it's easy to lose sight of the details, especially when it comes to Mr. Trump.
So here's a quick summary of what voters have learned in recent weeks.

- The Attorney General of New York has started an investigation into the Donald J. Trump Foundation.
At issue is a $25,000 donation made three years ago, in support of a Florida official who was weighing possible fraud charges against Mr. Trump.
No charges were brought, and the official became a supporter of Mr. Trump.

- Reporters have uncovered evidence that Mr. Trump spent $20,000 of his charity's money on a six-foot tall painting of himself.
It was sent to one of his private golf clubs.

- There have been new accounts of widespread accounts of discrimination of black people at Mr.Trump's New York properties during the 1970s.

- Last Friday, he finally admitted that "birtherisn" -- the racially tinged smear of President Obama he repeated for five years - was, in fact, a lie.
Instead of apologizing, Mr. Trump said the baseless conspiracy theory was started by his rival, Hillary Clinton -- which was itself untrue.

Oh, by the way, remember that woman who alleged that Trump and his friend, Jeffrey Epstein both raped her when she was 13-years-old?
Her name is Katie Johnson, aka "Jane Doe".and she had an eyewitness who stated, under oath, in an affidavit, that she "witnessed the incident." which allegedly occurred at one of Epstein's "Lolita" parties back in 1994.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/1016166395


Well, guess what?
The lawsuit she brought against Trump & Epstein in New York Federal Court was mysteriously and quietly dismissed last Friday.

Could the "Unsinkable Candidate" have possibly settled this lawsuit out of court, in order to avoid the negative publicity and embarrassment such a lawsuit might have caused him?

Here are the legal documents for this case.
http://www.pacermonitor.com/public/case/12206367/Doe_v_Trump_et_al



I could not find one single article or story about the dismissal of this potentially explosive
lawsuit..
One would THINK that the fact that this lawsuit was dismissed last Friday would be newsworthy, wouldn't one?
I guess not - the same day the lawsuit was dismissed was the day Trump made his big announcement that President Obama was, indeed, born in Hawaii, and that the "birther" stuff was started by Hillary, not him.

(I guess he is "unsinkable")

Sign Petition to Prosecute Teen Who Killed a Cat by Throwing Her Against a Wall

AnimalPetitions.org
September 19, 2016


An Emirati teenager was caught on video throwing a cat against a wall which resulted in the animal's death.

The suspect's mother has spoken out, expressing her son's severe hatred toward cats.
She said he has told her that when he sees one he wants to kill it.
She blames it on a cat the family had when her son was younger, who her son thought was possessed.

This sort of animal abuse cannot go unpunished, and a full investigation needs to be launched.

Animal abuse cases are punishable by law in Ajman, where the crime took place, by fining the perpetrator $5,000 or placing him in prison for up to a year.

Animal welfare workers are trying to promote the importance of investigating these crimes, but it's up to law enforcement to see that justice is served.

Demand that police fully investigate and prosecute the teenager, who hates cats so much that he may have brutally murdered one.

Trump's Call For a Flood of Poll Watchers Could Disrupt Some Polling Places

Pro Publica and
Mother Jones
September 14, 2016

"In all but four states, private citizens can challenge someone's right to cast a ballot on or before Election day.
In most places, the burden of proof then falls on the voter."


Donald Trump's campaign website implores voters to
"Help Me Stop Crooked Hillary From Rigging This Election" by signing up as observers.
He warned people at an August 12 campaign event in Altoona, Pennsylvania, that Clinton could win the state only by cheating, and asked supporters to "go down to certain areas and watch and study, and make sure other people don't come and vote five times."

Less than a week later, Trump's running mate, Mike Pence, encouraged a crowd in Manchester, New Hampshire, to help ensure a fair election by serving as poll watchers because "you are the greatest vanguard for integrity in voting."

No one knows how many of the Republican nominee's supporters will heed his call to stand in polling places on November 8 and challenge some voters' credentials - but past experience suggests that a wave of partisan poll watchers could create confusion and discourage people who have a right to cast ballots.

Trump supporter physically assaults protester at Trump rally in North Carolina

Daily Kos
September 12, 2016

Violence broke out at a Trump rally in North Carolina Monday.

The incident came as Trump lambasted Hillary Clinton for calling half of his supporters a
"basket of deplorables."
Trump had brought a group of supporters on stage, proclaiming them hard-working Americans, not "deplorables."


Time magazine is now reporting that:

The rally was interrupted several times by demonstrators and. at one moment, brief violence.
As several protesters were being escorted out by security, a man in the crowd grabbed a make protester around the neck and then punched him.
He then slapped at a woman being led out.
The Trump supporter was not ejected by security.
The celebrity businessman talked through the scuffle, but cracked after the disturbance,
"Is there anyplace more fun than a Trump rally?"


Deplorable? Apparently not, according to Trump.
As he stood on stage and watched the incident unfold, Trump said:
It's OK...the dishonest media will fail to report that.

This morning, some Water Protectors chained themselves to construction equipment at the Dakota Access pipeline in North Dakota.
Police arrived in riot gear with automatic weapons and arrested people on the construction site.

Media was asked not to cross a certain line.

In the video link below, a Unicorn Riot journalist is complying with the demand.
It appears he was arrested anyway.

Daily Kos
September 12, 2016


We can't let Donald Trump become President.

Have you heard some of the things he has said?

"Barack Obama is the founder of ISIS"

Or when referencing "taking care of Hillary Clinton" explicitly bringing up
"the second amendment people?"

We can't let a person who says these things speak for our country.

It will only get worse...With Donald trump there is no "last straw."

If we stand together, we can show that America does not and will not accept a candidate who makes up lies, degrades women, and divides our country.


Sign the Petition from WOMEN VOTE and we can make our message clear:
"Donald doesn't speak for me!"

LETTER TO THE NEWS MEDIA

"When Hillary Clinton felt weak and had to leave a 9/11 memorial ceremony early,
you got the story completely wrong.
She had PNEUMONIA and chose to power through rather than leave the campaign trail.
THIS should have been the story of the day.
Not that she nearly fell down, but that despite the heat, humidity and illness (pneumonia), Hillary Clinton still showed up!

We expect more than hysterical, overblown, and sexist reporting - and want to see you apply journalistic integrity to all your presidential campaign coverage!"

Demand Maximum Penalty For Man Who Set Tortoise On Fire To Increase Facebook Views - (PETITION)

AnimalPetitions.org
September 9, 2016


A tortoise was set on fire by an Alabama man, allegedly to garner Facebook views.

In a live video, James Terrence Allen, 19, reportedly stated: "Give me 100 views and I'll light it," shortly before dousing the tortoise with alcohol and setting it ablaze.
He then reportedly threatened, "Give me 200 views or this (expletive) is gonna die."

Leonardo, a gopher tortoise, endured tremendous suffering after he was set on fire.

Fortunately, Leonardo suffered only minor injuries.

Allen faces a felony animal cruelty charge as well as a misdemeanor charge from the Alabama Game Warden, as the gopher tortoise is an endangered species.

Leonardo is recuperating at the Big Bend Wildlife Sanctuary in Enterprise and will be released back into the wild once he recovers.

Take a stand against animal abuse and recommend the maximum penalty in this case.
