Indiana Officials Target A Black Voter Registration Drive On A Technicality

Source: Huffington Post

WASHINGTON ― Earlier this month, just ahead of Indiana’s voter registration deadline, state police executed a search warrant at the office of an organization that had set out to register black voters in a state with the worst voter turnout in the country.

Officers conducted their search on the Indiana Voter Registration Project’s headquarters just a few weeks after Republican Secretary of State Connie Lawson sent a letter to state election officials warning that “nefarious actors are operating” in the Hoosier state and asking them to inform authorities if they received any voter registration forms from the group.

The letter from Lawson ― who, when she was a state legislator, co-sponsored Indiana’s controversial voter ID law ― amounted to “the voter suppression equivalent of an Amber alert,” said Craig Varoga, the president of Patriot Majority USA, a liberal nonprofit group that ran the Indiana Voter Registration Project.

The publicity surrounding the actions taken by Lawson and Indiana’s state police have cast a shadow over the nonprofits, with many stories accusing them of voter fraud.

SHOCKING and UNEXPECTED! Sheldon Adelson-owned Las Vegas Review Journal endorses Trump.

If you want / need to read it, it's here: https://www.facebook.com/reviewjournal/posts/10154467727120552

Congratulations, Uncle Sheldon. You bought the LVRJ for this purpose. Mission accomplished.

Donald Jr: Dad "not happy about" p*ssy-grabbing video, BUT..."He speaks from the heart."

"If I heard somebody talking around my girls like we heard on the ‘Access Hollywood’ tape, it’d be done for me,” Monson said.

“I understand that,” Trump Jr. responded. “Obviously, he’s not happy about that.”

“We all probably know guys who have had conversations with other guys that go a little bit in that direction,” he said. “That’s a fact of life.”

“He hasn’t spent his whole life sitting there polishing every statement he’s ever made, every conversation he’s ever had,” Trump Jr. added. “He doesn’t run a focus group so he can tell you what he’s thinking. He speaks from the heart.”


Trump Campaign RESPONDS: Hillary is rigging the election again, this time with pornstars.

Adult film star Jessica Drake on Saturday became the 12th woman in recent weeks to allege that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump sexually mistreated her.

The Trump campaign issued a statement shortly after Drake’s press conference, calling the allegations “false and ridiculous.”

“The picture is one of thousands taken out of respect for people asking to have their picture taken with Mr. Trump. Mr. Trump does not know this person, does not remember this person and would have no interest in ever knowing her,” the campaign said, adding that Drake’s announcement was “just another example of the Clinton campaign trying to rig the election.”

Like the women before her, Drake said her decision was sparked by watching a 2005 video of Trump bragging about getting away with assaulting women because of his celebrity status. The video, first reported the Washington Post, sent Trump’s presidential campaign into a tailspin and has since driven his support among women down to historically low numbers.


'If He Hated Women So Much, How Could He Be Married 3 Times?'

Women For Trump Want to Know: 'If He Hated Women So Much, How Could He Be Married 3 Times?'


On Thursday at 4 p.m., a ten-yard stretch outside of Trump Tower in Manhattan felt like the stands of a high school football game, if the stakes were much higher, the stands were metal barricades, the coaches were police, and one team’s fans chanted “Lock-her-up!”

I was curious to see who would respond to the mysteriously under-advertised graphic posted Wednesday on the Facebook page for “Women for Trump New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut,” faction operating under the larger “Women For Trump” coalition. When I arrived, I found 50 or so women, many between ages 50 and 70 and identifying as working or retired suburban mothers, holding purple “Women for Trump” signs. Many of them hadn’t heard of Wednesday’s anti-Trump “Pussy Power” protests; they’d just come to show that moms and women outside the city have political opinions too.

On her way out of the barricades, I caught Zulma, who’d been holding a “Latina for Trump” sign and stopped to give me a quick spiel on immigration. “Women are the ones affected by open borders,” she said. “Last year 70,000 women were assaulted by illegal immigrants. I have two daughters, and I’ll be damned if that happens to them,” she said. “That good?” She marched off.

Barbara, a black minister from Harlem, believes that Obama and Clinton are “godless” in their stances on marriage equality and abortion, and she’s tired of the “same Democratic games.” “If Trump hated women so much, how could he be married three times?” she asked. “The Democrats who are accusing him are probably the same ones shacking up around the corner. And watching pornography!”

Accuser No. 11: Adult film star Jessica Drake says Trump offered to pay her $10K for sex

UPDATE (5:16 p.m. Eastern): Drake said that she met Trump at a golf tournament and that he asked her up to his room. He pressured her to have sex with him and offered her $10,000 and the use of his private jet to have sex with him, which she declined.

Trump's first 100 days: Sue the women he sexually molested, build wall, send Mexico an invoice

Trump’s address was billed as an outline of his first 100 days as president. But he opened by again complaining that the election was rigged against him and then attacked the several women who accused him of sexual assault this month.

“Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign. Total fabrication,” Trump said. “The events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over.”

Trump also said that the United States would pay for a wall with Mexico “with the full understanding” that the Latin American country would reimburse it for costs. It’s a small, but noticeable tweak in Trump’s signature campaign policy. He had previously simply said that Mexico would pay for the wall.


Formerly known as "Trump"...New "Trump luxury hotels" will bear the brand name "Scion"


According to Travel + Leisure, new Trump luxury hotels will now bear the “Scion” name.

According to CEO Eric Danzinger, the new name reflects the family without using the brand name Trump has spent a lifetime building.

“We wanted a name that would be a nod to the Trump family and to the tremendous success it has had with its businesses, including Trump Hotels, while allowing for a clear distinction between our luxury and lifestyle brands,” Danziger said in a press release.

According to Executive Vice President of Development & Acquisitions, Ivanka Trump, “Our business at Trump Hotels is stronger than ever and we are incredibly excited about the future of Scion, the newest brand in our hotel portfolio.”

Joe Biden: "I wish we were in high school, and I could take him behind the gym."

Joe Biden Wishes He Could Beat Up Donald Trump
“I wish we were in high school, and I could take him behind the gym.”


Vice President Joe Biden implied on Friday that he wishes he could beat up Donald Trump over vulgar and predatory comments the GOP presidential nominee made toward women.

Biden was asked about comments Trump made in a 2005 tape in which he bragged about making unwanted sexual advances toward women and being able to “grab them by the pussy” because he was a celebrity.

“’Because I’m a billionaire I can do things other people can’t.’ What a disgusting assertion for anyone to make,” Biden said while campaigning for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in Pennsylvania. “The press always ask me, don’t I wish I was debating him? No, I wish we were in high school, and I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish.”

“(Trump) was born with a silver spoon in his mouth that he’s now choking on because his foot’s in his mouth along with the spoon,” Biden said in September.

Michelle Obama, the final frontier. With nothing left to lose, Trump went there.

With Nothing Left To Lose, Donald Trump Lashes Out At Michelle Obama


“We have a president. All he wants to do is campaign. His wife ― all she wants to do is campaign. And I see how much his wife likes Hillary. But wasn’t she the one that originally started the statement, If you can’t take care of your home, right? You can’t take care of the White House and the country? Where is that? I don’t hear that.”


Last week, White House spokesman Eric Schultz seemed to lay the bait for Trump to attack the first lady, who had a high favorable rating of 64 percent in August, according to Gallup.

“I can’t think of a bolder way for Donald Trump to lose even more standing than he already has than by engaging the first lady of the United States,” he said.
