Eric Trump: Father tunes out Critics to Avoid Committing Suicide

Source: Independent Reporter

On Tuesday, President Trump’s son, Eric Trump, was a guest on The Joe Pags Show, where he talked about the upcoming birth of his child, politics in America and his father’s presidency. Most notably though, Eric spoke about what he feels is evil and hatred aimed at his father, and the ability of this hatred to potentially lead to one killing one’s self.

At first, the younger Trump simply talked about how he feels as though the mainstream media has it out for his father, and no matter what the elder Trump does, the media will criticize him for it.

Source: The HILL

A Houston police officer drowned on his way to work Sunday, The Houston Chronicle reported on Tuesday.

"He was trying different routes, and took a wrong turn," one official told the newspaper.

The officer's family has yet to be officially notified, as crews work to recover his body.

The officer, a 30-year veteran of the city's police department, unsuccessfully tried to exit his vehicle after becoming caught in the floodwaters.

Shaun King documents NYPD Brutal Assault & Corruption

Picture yourself being a clean cut teen who never has had any run in, with the law - whatsoever. All of a sudden, the NYPD pulls up, orders you to get into a car, so they can arrest you. Using known - bogus testimony based upon false (coerced) witness by a guy who falsely testified against 24 others - you are accused of attempted murder.

Whilst you are incarcerated, falsely, they brutally beat you up; and, when you refused plea deals, they let the real shooter, with 7 eye witnesses, to be ' Scot Free', whilst they arrest your mom (for tuning a yellow light).

That is what happened to Pedro Hernandez.

Believe it or not, the video of the beating is concealed, for months, until leaked.

Meanwhile, the 42nd Precinct is on a mission to put you in jail - for life.

Activist / journalist @ShaunKing brought this horrendous case of extreme manifest injustice, to my attention.

Like our eToys case, I'm taking the very rare stance of adopting this saga, until justice comes.

Shaun King has this tiger by the tail; and he has titled his series as


I'm bring you part 3, as it contains many videos of testimony of others, who were threatened with being beaten up, unless they testify falsely, against Pedro Hernandez (who refuses to leave his bedroom, out of fear they will fabricate another case, against him).

Countering the State Sponsored Conspiracy to Destroy Pedro Hernandez (Part 3)

Here's video of Pedro being beaten, to force confession

Not only is the NYPD 42nd Precinct, corrupt, the local prosecutor also threatened the Hernadez's.

Here's video of William Stevens testimonial to local News, about the fact he was coerced to falsely testify against 2 dozen people.

Please help this tweet and related items, to go viral?

United together, we can make a difference!

Donald Trump's presidency already has been one of the most controversial in U.S. history, and its ending could be just as action-packed and unpredictable as his first seven months in office.

As the 45th president deals with his stalled agenda, his sinking approval ratings and the investigations into his presidential campaign's ties to Russia, White House advisers have reportedly been warning Trump about his potential political doom: the exhaustive impeachment process that could result in his removal from the Oval Office. And he isn’t doing himself many favors.

WASHINGTON – Cumulus Media, which syndicates radio stars Don Imus, Mark Levin and Michael Savage, among others, is having some ratings issues of its own – on Wall Street.

On Friday, Cumulus shares were trading at 41 cents, down from $5.45 in September 2015 when Chief Executive Lew Dickey left the company. In early 2014, a share was selling at $64.04.

It is threatened with delisting by Nasdaq and is facing the distinct possibility of Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings.

GOP Congressman Buck: D.C. Corruption is Far Worse

This will be the 1st GOP book I've ever purchased. My jaw dropped to learn of this book, today. Colorado Congressman Ken Buck has released a book titled

Corruption in Washington Is ‘Worse Than You Think

The Congressman is quoted as stating:

Corruption on Capitol Hill is “worse than you think,” Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., insists.

“When you first get here, you think that you are in some sort of fairy-tale novel,” Buck said. “They wine and dine you and they show you just exactly what it’s like if you play the game. It’s a wonderful life.”

Things quickly change, however, if “you don’t play the game.”

“If you don’t play the game … it becomes a much less conformable existence here,” Buck said.

A Massachusetts hospital worker has won the largest single-ticket prize in US lottery history, a $758.7m Powerball jackpot – and immediately told her employer she wouldn’t be going back to work.

“I called and told them I will not be coming back,” Mavis Wanczyk told reporters at a news conference. “The first thing I want to do is just sit back and relax.”

US science envoy steps down, spells out "impeach" in resignation letter

Professor steps down as State Dept. science envoy, spelling out "impeach" in his resignation letter
Washington (CNN)A University of California-Berkeley energy professor resigned Wednesday from his position as a State Department science envoy, blasting President Donald Trump for recent comments on white supremacist violence in Charlottesville.

The professor, Daniel Kammen, included a less-than-subtle assessment of Trump in his resignation letter by spelling out the word "impeach" with the first letters of each paragraph.

"My view on impeachment is perhaps less formal than if I was an elected member of Congress," Kammen said in an interview with CNN, "but I don't view what the President is doing as consistent with the best interests of the United States and the global community."
