  • Trumps conflict of interest

    12/01/2016 8:30:40 AM PST · by BastianK · 26 replies
    Democrats bemoan the potential of conflicts of interest for Donald Trump. Indeed could he as president not only steer law making and application in a way that would benefit his diverse business directly, he could also be influenced by entities who agree to very favorable terms in business dealings. Bloomberg for example recently reported that a bank under the control of the Chinese government was due to renegotiate its lease at Trump Tower in Manhattan. Donald Trump announced that he would not involve himself in his business anymore to avoid such conflicts, but that does not satisfy critics, who point...

Amid claims of an electronic intruder the choice was made not to return the boards to active status for any open exchange. This decision allows all of those who were totally and completely wrong in their...

    The Revolutionary Act ^ | 11/01/2016 | Rod Thomson
    A quarter century in the mainstream media establishment furnished me with ample evidence of how the media shades and distorts coverage in the most professional and yet opaque ways — so ingrained that the shading is all but invisible to the journalists doing it. The media’s multi-generational predilection has become established journalism. The worldview defining what is newsworthy and why, and what is not and why not, is now a foundational part of journalism. That it reflects one worldview over a competing worldview is undeniable for those looking at life through the competing worldview. But this truth is invisible to...

When asked by reporters if he had made the traditional concession phone call to Wasserman Shultz, Canova indicated that he would not congratulate her because he does not believe she has won a fair fight. “I’ll concede that Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a corporate stooge,” the Bernie Sanders backed candidate told reporters, according to the Sun Sentinel. “We’re fighting for American democracy,” said Canova, who got to 43 percent of...

    The Washington Post ^ | October 6, 2016 | Lindsey Bever
    A white pastor in New York has been swept up in a race debate following a proclamation that he would not say “all lives matter.” The mantra, he said, does not address an essential issue. The 37-year-old’s comment came just days after two police shootings left two black men dead. Terence Crutcher, an unarmed black man, was shot and killed by a white police officer in Tulsa on Sept. 16; four days later, another black man, Keith Lamont Scott, was killed at the hands of police in Charlotte. The shootings ignited peaceful protests interrupted by chaos in cities 1,000 miles...

    It's because he defends white people. This is the reason the media is able to openly oppose him. There aren't aren't pressure groups who are going to go after the media's sponsors for doing this. What Trump is doing isn't permissible in the liberal media bubble and the Republican Establishment on Fox News. However, the people who stayed home in 2008 and 2012 are going to show how out of touch the media is on Election Day.

    First the reason the time now to pick Rubio is to beat Hillary to the punch with picking an hispanic. Second reason why. It locks up almost all of the southern states. Rubio did well in Virginia and will also help in Nevada. This leaves Ohio for Trump to win. It also helps him compete in Minnesota and New Mexico. This will allow Trump to put resources in the some of the Northeast states making Hillary compete in states they would not normally compete in.

    Prevalence of homosexuality in men is stable throughout time since many carry the genes Around half of all heterosexual men and women potentially carry so-called homosexuality genes that are passed on from one generation to the next. This has helped homosexuality to be present among humans throughout history and in all cultures, even though homosexual men normally do not have many descendants who can directly inherit their genes. According to previous research, sexual orientation is influenced to a degree by genetic factors and is therefore heritable. Chaladze says this poses a problem from an evolutionary perspective, because homosexual men tend...

Kasich has a narrowly positive favorability at 41/38, but the only candidate GOP voters in the state really like is Trump at 65/29.

    Ted Cruz’s loss in the Arizona primary Tuesday puts mathematics squarely on the side of Donald Trump in the race to capture the Republican presidential nomination, an ongoing state-by-state delegate allocation analysis by The Washington Times indicates. “Mr. Trump’s win in Arizona means Mr. Cruz must win 90 percent of the remaining delegates after March 22 to get to 1,237. The chance of this happening is equivalent to winning the Powerball lottery,” said former Republican National Committee Treasurer Randy Pullen, who was also the state party chairman in Arizona.
