CROOKED DONALD -- A partial list of his surrogates' and his crooked dealings

Giuliani admits he knew in advance that FBI insiders leak information to Trump campaign. 

The FBI is interfering with and influencing a presidential election, which may be unlawful. But Trump and his goons don't care for the law if it advances their quest for the presidency. 

These are the same folks who call Hillary "crooked." 

More voter intimidation at the polls by Goopers:

Arkansas Republican stood in polling place door shouting ‘shut up and go home’ at early voters

Sean Hannity apologizes for reading fake news story about Michelle Obama/Hillary Clinton live on air

Sean Hannity was forced to apologize after he read a totally false story about Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton live on his radio broadcast: Sean Hannity has apologized for reading a fake news story on air that claimed first lady Michelle Obama had scrubbed her Twitter account of mentions of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. The conservative radio talker and Fox News host also says one of his radio listeners called in to say President Barack Obama and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren did the same. On Twitter Tuesday , Hannity said, “Fact is they didn’t. I humbly apologize. Live radio.”


 National Enquirer Shielded Donald Trump From Playboy Model’s Affair Allegation

Tabloid owner American Media agreed to pay $150,000 for story from 1998 Playmate of the Year, but hasn’t published her account

The company that owns the National Enquirer, a backer of Donald Trump, agreed to pay $150,000 to a former Playboy centerfold model for her story of an affair a decade ago with the Republican presidential nominee, but then didn’t publish it, according to documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal and people familiar with the matter. 

 The tabloid-newspaper publisher reached an agreement in early August with Karen McDougal, the 1998 Playmate of the Year. American Media Inc., which owns the Enquirer, hasn’t published anything about what she has told friends was a consensual romantic relationship she had with Mr. Trump in 2006. At the time, Mr. Trump was married to his current wife, Melania. Quashing stories that way is known in the tabloid world as “catch and kill.”

Karen McDougal, the 1998 Playmate of the Year, cut a deal with the tabloid publisher in August, The Wall Street Journal reported. 

The report adds American Media refused to publish details about McDougal's alleged tryst with Trump — who was married to his wife Melania at the time — that began in 2006 and lasted until 2007. 

 The National Enquirer, which endorsed Trump for president, denied buying the story for $150,000 but rather, "two years’ worth of her fitness columns and magazine covers as well as exclusive life rights to any relationship she has had with a then-married man," WSJ reported. 

"AMI has not paid people to kill damaging stories about Mr. Trump," American Media told The Wall Street Journal.

TRUMP cheated on Melania; Trump cheated people out of their money when they signed up for his fake Trump University; Trump cheated contractors out of money he owed them for work he contracted them to do.  This is the man the far right "Christian Evangelicals" support. 

But wait, there's more!

From Trump-suck-up, FAUX NOOZ:

Trump's wife worked illegally during her first weeks in the US, documents show

WASHINGTON – Melania Trump was paid for 10 modeling jobs in the United States worth $20,056 that occurred in the seven weeks before she had legal permission to work in the country, according to detailed accounting ledgers, contracts and related documents from 20 years ago provided to The Associated Press. The details of Mrs. Trump's early paid modeling work in the U.S. emerged in the final days of a bitter presidential campaign in which her husband, Donald Trump, has taken a hard line on immigration laws and those who violate them. Trump has proposed broader use of the government's E-verify system allowing employers to check whether job applicants are authorized to work. He has noted that federal law prohibits illegally paying immigrants.



Ezra Klein ✔ @ezrakleinThe real Clinton email scandal is that a bullshit story has dominated the campaign… 9:38 AM - 4 Nov 2016

And who's surprised when the King of Bullshit, Donald Trump, is the nominee of the Stupid Party?

PLEASE read Paul Waldman of the Washington Post:

These are getting to be very ugly, dangerous times. I find myself more willing to vote for Hillary Clinton, who is tough, resilient and highly intelligent, every day that progresses with more obscene transgressions from the right. There is no symmetry here between the parties. None.

'...Let’s take the FBI case as just one example. You have a situation where a group of FBI agents is in direct conflict with prosecutors who believe the agents have a weak case in their attempt to find evidence of corruption that can be used against Clinton. The agents, in an atrocious violation of FBI policy against injecting the Bureau into an election, begin leaking dark innuendo to reporters. That convinces the FBI director that he has no choice but to go public with the fact that the Bureau is looking at some emails that might or might not have something to do with Clinton, though no one has actually read them. That news lands like a bombshell, despite its complete lack of substance.

'And then it turns out that these agents are basing their investigation on a book called “Clinton Cash” by Peter Schweizer. Schweizer is the president of the Government Accountability Institute, an organization co-founded and chaired by Steve Bannon. Who is the CEO of the Trump campaign....

'And please, spare me any explanations for this phenomenon that rely on how “divided” Americans are. Are we divided? Sure. But there’s only one party that is so vigorously undermining core democratic institutions in this way. You may not like what Democrats stand for, but they aren’t engaging in widespread official vote suppression, chanting that should their candidate win her opponent should be tossed in jail, promising to prevent any Republican president from filling vacancies on the Supreme Court, suggesting that they’ll try to impeach their opponent as soon as he takes office, cheering when a hostile foreign power hacks into American electronic systems, and trying to use the FBI to win the election.
'Only one party is doing all of that. And we should all be very worried about what Republicans will do after November 8, whether they win or lose.'

To the revolting and deranged TOM:

You will NEVER be published here. Your stupid comments are flushed into the sewer where they originate.

Get help. You are sick.

TRUMP: The biggest lying liar of the 2016 presidential campaign. It's one accolade he richly deserves:

Trump: Obama “spent so much time screaming at this protester”

Bluebull said...

Drumpf is simply the biggest LIAR ever to run for office. Of course that means the deranged and disgusting right would flock to him. They've done NOTHING for America for 40 years except to lie and divide. They actually think they're going to win on Tuesday, too! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I can't wait to rub it in and gloat.

Dave Miller said...

Shaw... the news coming out of Nevada is yuuge! Our biggest day of early voting ever and the Dems turned out more people than the 2012 election that featured Obama, In Florida, the latino numbers prevoting are up 150%.

Those are catastrophic numbers for Trump. Political guru of Nevada says Trump will need to win the Tuesday nuymbers by at least 10% to cover the early voting beating he has taken here. And that, with liberal Las Vegas leading the way, will be almost impossible.

Here's some humor to give you an idea of how the "conservative" minds think, found at one blog this morning...

All I know is that I’d take this information [about possible AQ attacks on Tuesday] and completely smash a city anywhere in the Middle East where these threats are coming from. Period. Why not? They threaten us and what do WE do….The CIA and FBI get involved….the bloggers get upset and blog, the TV news channels have 89 ‘experts’ weighing in….”hoorah, THAT’LL HELP US!” (not) Meanwhile, evil jihadists are loading guns, preparing airborne poisons, building bombs, surveilling shopping malls……some match for us, huh?

I’m SICK with embarrassment for this once-great country"

The person is so embarrassed that they would bomb anyone, even if they are not involved? Does killing people help you feel better? Does killing innocent people help Trump supporters feel better? Help them not feel weak and embarrassed?

The reality is that many in the US are embarrassed by ideas like this one. Since when does America just bomb somewhere, even if nothing has yet happened?

Geeez these people are angry, confused and have gone over the edge.

I'm doubting that tomorrow we will see a Sunday Faith Blog quoting Jesus' words to "turn the other cheek, love your enemy and pray for those who persecute you."

Bluebull: "Drumpf is simply the biggest LIAR ever to run for office."

His delusional supporters pretend that isn't true and focus their frustrations on Hillary. Trup doesn't give a flying donut about them. In fact he probably laughs behind their backs. Trump says he understands them. Ha. A guy who lives in a 33 thousand square foot penthouse, who's had three wives, and own a private jet, and several homes. Yeah. He knows how to fix the common man's problems. He doesn't KNOW a common man. But they're so marinated in their frustrations that they're ready to follow the fraud into oblivion. I pity them. They've made a Faustian bargain with an accused child rapist and racketeer.

Dave quoting a conservative blogger: "All I know is that I’d take this information [about possible AQ attacks on Tuesday] and completely smash a city anywhere in the Middle East where these threats are coming from."

No wonder those people love Trump. Didn't he say he'd "bomb the sh*t" out of ISIS?

Dave: "I'm doubting that tomorrow we will see a Sunday Faith Blog quoting Jesus' words to "turn the other cheek, love your enemy and pray for those who persecute you."

They can put up "Sunday Faith Blogs" from here to eternity but it doesn't change the fact that they've sold their souls for political power to a misogynistic, philandering, lying fraud. He is everything they would detest if he had a "D" after his name instead of his fake "R." One thing that will come out of this sordid presidential election is that the Evangelical Christians who claim to follow the teachings of Christ and who support Trump will no longer be taken seriously. They've exposed themselves for what they are. So sad.

I hope what is happening in Nevada and Florida continues. But still, I'm not taking anything for granted.

BTW, did you see how one of the far right TeaPublican bloggers debased himself by publishing a photoshopped a naked image of Hillary? Man. I have never witnessed such rancid hatred in all the years I've followed electoral politics. It must be awful to be that soaked in anger, rage, and bile. As a wise person once said, “Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.” They are sick, sick, sick.

PS. Did you see how President Obama handled the older gentleman's heckling the other day.

Class. Donald Trump comes off like a brute compared with our classy president.

Dave Miller said...

Yes, I saw that... another one who decries the language and hate he sees from the left. A more passive aggressive blogger I've not seen...

Dave Miller said...

And yes, Obama did a great job with the heckler... something Trump was unable to do when presented with similar circumstances...

Bluebull said...

Agreed. Our President is a very classy guy and he handled the old heckler with grace and compassion. There's zero chance that the 70 year old orange dumpster fire would've done the same. Zero.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Bluebull, Donald Trump has no class or grace or self-discipline.

Compare and contrast our classy president, who lives his religion, to the fake Donald Trump who's bamboozled the weak-minded on the right. They fell for Sarah Palin, so why would anyone be surprised that they'd fall for an even bigger fraud, Donald Trump!
