MY TOWN! After 148 Years, The San Diego Union-Tribune Endorses A Democrat For President

The historically conservative San Diego Union-Tribune has endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton over her “vengeful, dishonest and impulsive” Republican opponent, Donald Trump.

The Union-Tribune announced Friday morning it would support a Clinton presidency, despite having never endorsed a Democrat in the paper’s 148-year-history.

The change in course stems from the high stakes of this election, the editorial board said in its endorsement.

“Terrible leaders can knock nations off course. Trump could be our Chávez,” it wrote, referring to Hugo Chávez, the controversial former president of Venezuela. “We cannot take that risk.”


Trump Hotel guests received a complimentary USA Today declaring Trump unfit for the presidency


Representatives for four Trump-branded hotels — Trump International Hotel & Tower in New York, Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago, Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC, and Trump Doral in Miami — told BuzzFeed News that guests are provided a complimentary copy of the paper. The front page of Friday’s edition featured a tease of the editorial, with the headline “TRUMP UNFIT FOR THE PRESIDENCY.”

At two properties, Trump Waikiki in Hawaii and Trump International Hotel Las Vegas, the newspaper is sold at the property in the hotel shop. A representative for Trump SoHo said they offered a copy for a fee.

In Canada, guests at the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Toronto can get a complimentary copy.

WOW, This is BIG: Trump Foundation lacks the certification required for charities that solicit money


By David A. Fahrenthold September 29 at 8:25 PM
Donald Trump’s charitable foundation — which has been sustained for years by donors outside the Trump family — has never obtained the certification that New York requires before charities can solicit money from the public, according to the state attorney general’s office.

Under the laws in New York, where the Donald J. Trump Foundation is based, any charity that solicits more than $25,000 per year from the public must obtain a special kind of registration beforehand. Charities as large as Trump’s must also submit to a rigorous annual audit that asks — among other things — whether the charity spent any money for the personal benefit of its officers.

If New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D) finds that Trump’s foundation raised money in violation of the law, he could order the charity to stop raising money immediately. With a court’s permission, Schneiderman could also force Trump to return money his foundation has already raised.

The Trump campaign did not respond to a request for comment Thursday.


In March, I donated $10 to @realDonaldTrump's fundraiser for vets. $ went to Trump Fdn, not registered to solicit $.


Here's what showed up on the card statement. Again, @realDonaldTrump Fdn not registered to solicit $ w/NY state.

Clinton team accuses Trump of breaking Cuba embargo (& Kellyanne Conway CONFIRMS Story On-The View)

The Clinton campaign says Donald Trump “appears to have broken the law” following reports that he secretly paid $68,000 to pursue business in Castro-led Cuba despite US sanctions.

“Trump’s business with Cuba appears to have broken the law, flouted U.S. foreign policy, and is in complete contradiction to Trump’s own repeated, public statements that he had been offered opportunities to invest in Cuba but passed them up,” said Clinton’s senior policy adviser Jake Sullivan.

“This latest report shows once again that Trump will always put his own business interest ahead of the national interest - and has no trouble lying about it,” he added.

This morning’s report in Newsweek revealed that back in 1998 Trump’s hotel and resort business paid $68,000 to a consulting firm to go to Cuba and meet with officials and business leaders in preparation for possible investment opportunities if sanctions lifted. Newsweek reports that the money was later declared as charity in order to hide it as only US government-approved and humanitarian money was allowed to be spent because of the embargo on Cuba.

Trump himself has not addressed the allegations, but his surrogate Kelly Conway did not dispute the facts of the payment on The View today.


The women on The View aggressively questioned Kellyanne Conway today.
Here's how Conway responded to q's about potential Cuba investments:

KellyannePolls goes on The View to defend Trump's dealing in Cuba, doesn't read the law,
and unknowingly confesses he committed a crime.


That's a bad answer. It's illegal to invest in Cuba and it was illegal to spend $$ in Cuba to look at investments. This confirms the story.

Obtained from a source, here are the Trump surrogate talking points on report of Cuba business dealings...


Another Important TidBit:
Cuba story : It's 90% internal Trump company docs, which I quote.



Florida Senator Marco Rubio may have endorsed Trump for president, but he’s not happy with Newsweek’s report that Trump conducted business in Fidel Castro-controlled Cuba, saying he’s “deeply concerned.”

“I hope the Trump campaign is gonna come forward and answer some questions about this because if what the article says is true -- and I’m not saying that it is, we don’t know with a hundred percent certainty -- I’d be deeply concerned about it, I would,” said Rubio in an interview on the ESPN/ABC “Capital Games” podcast.

“This is something they’re gonna have to give a response to. I mean, it was a violation of American law, if that’s how it happened,” said Rubio.

Rubio backs the current US embargo on Cuba.



We now have 3 cases of Trump seeking business in Cuba 2 in the mid/late 90s and 1 in 2012-13


This story will change the Republican Cuban vote in Miami, meaning FL loss.
