Equal Disclosure Would Put Donald Trump in Jail, Hillary Clinton in the White House

IMAGE CREDIT: WWW.USMESSAGEBOARD.COM Call it what you will: sexism, media bias, sexism (OK, we already mentioned that one), love of capitalism, hate of the government, who the heck really knows at this point? But one thing is crystal clear, if both candidates for President of the United States were held to the same standard of personal and financial disclosure, there is no question who would win the election. Hands down, the next president would be Hillary Clinton. Huffington Post put it best back in September and things have only become more skewed in Trump’s favor, believe it or not: Any way you slice it, this level of self-dealing looks bad. It looks like a candidate who is pocketing donor’s money. -Paul S. Ryan, Campaign Legal Center It’s such a scam. -Stuart Stevens, former aide to 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney In the final months of the primary campaign, Trump’s own money accounted for 82 percent of the campaign’s cash. Since securing the nomination, that figure is down to 12 percent. The biggest winner on that date was Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, which received $423,372. Trump’s preference for expensive venues that he happens to own has also extended to his campaign airplane. Anyone who would like to challenge the idea that if it were possible to level these accusations at Secretary Clinton, please do so, but in all...

When 32 Million Americans Can’t Read, ‘Trump’ Happens

IMAGE CREDIT: RANKER.COM It’s startling, but it’s true that more than 32 million adult Americans can’t read even just a few words. That is just deplorable, for a country like the United States of America: a shining example of democracy, freedom and education for the world to covet and attempt to emulate. We will dive into the details of how the heck this happened in America in a later series of articles. I think it stands to reason that our lack of respect for the education of all of our citizens deserves much of the blame, and may even be in some way the result of intentional and darker forces. But I can’t help but think that this incredible shortcoming of the ability of our population to learn, analyze and even vote in a way that is fully vetted and informed has advanced Trump’s candidacy. If all 32 million of the adults in America who do vote based only on what ‘they’re hearing…’ as Donald Trump so loves to say, then it should be no surprise that a fraud and abuser like Trump just may become the next President of the United...

Trump, Comey Just Can’t Stand That it’s No Longer a ‘Man’s World’

It’s kind of a ‘giveaway’ that when men with power who publicly shame women who have been abused by men, that these ‘powerful’ men feel inadequate in some way. Why on earth, would the FBI Director, James Comey announce a week before the U.S. presidential election that he has… Wait for it, a laptop that one of presidential and female candidate Hillary Clinton’s closest adviser’s husband used to ‘sext’ supposedly under-aged women? Yes, apparently this has some relevance to the candidacy of Clinton herself. Or, in a similar vain, why would Donald Trump, Clinton’s opponent, think it appropriate or relevant, for that matter, to have women who’ve accused her husband of making unwanted advances at them decades ago sit in a front row of the second presidential debate? Here is why: Many powerful men have obviously become accustomed to treating women like objects and acting as though, in some way, they are not as powerful or deserving of respect as men are. Guess what? It’s all about to change, and if I was one of these men, I would be running in the other direction, and...

Julian Assange of ‘Wiki Leaks’ Really Needs to Find Himself a Diaper

Really, buddy, Julian Assange? If  you had such powerful and damning information against Hillary Clinton, why did you feel it was necessary to ‘leak’ it out daily, like a drag queen likes to make the ‘show go on.’ Well, it is obvious to me why you are such a little girl: you have no friends, and as you ‘hole up’ in some un-identified location, sniffing  for money from Trump’s dirty and empty wallet, you think your ‘act 2’ has been found. Well, I will say this to you sniveling little loser: Donald Trump is a loser on a huge decline, and you are a bigger loser for grabbing his coattails, in the hope of finally digging yourself out of one of the biggest holes ever. Good luck with that, A-hole.        ...

Trump Just Nuked the Republican Party

IMAGE CREDIT: SLATE.COM Trumped signed a pledge to be loyal to the Republican party just over a year ago. Here is what he said after doing so, according to CNN: “The best way for the Republicans to win is if I win the nomination and go directly against whoever they happen to put up. And for that reason, I have signed the pledge,” Trump said, holding up the paper. “So I will be totally pledging my allegiance to the Republican Party and for the conservative principles for which it stands.” It’s not surprising, with a man like Trump, that he would, once again break his promise, but this time, he really betrayed those who elevated him to be the Republican nominee for President of the United States. Trump’s promises, including this monumental one, are as worthless as the paper he held up to show how he really cannot be believed. The Republican party he promised to be loyal to, has now been tossed in the trash by Trump, along with that piece of paper he so carelessly waived in the...

Newt Gingrich Basically Just ‘Raped’ Megyn Kelly on National TV

Megyn Kelly responded to Newt Gingrich’s comment by saying she’s “not fascinated by sex,” but is “fascinated by the protection of women.” (AP Photo/Chris Carlson, File) I thought we hit a new low when Donald Trump started to question the validity of the United States’ election process. Then Newt Gingrich entered this ugly fray (is it just me, or does he remind you of the Grinch who stole Christmas?) So now, Grinchy says about Megyn Kelly, and I quote: ‘You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy… That’s what I get out of watching you tonight.” Sickening is a word that comes to my mind when I think about that comment, especially when it was spilled out of the mouth of an admitted adulterer. If I were Megyn Kelly, I would take both Gingrich and Trump to the back of the gym and beat them senseless....

It Is Satisfying to Watch Trump World Implode, ‘Bigly’

IMAGE CREDIT: IBTIMES.COM It has been argued, although not that well, that Trump isn’t saying ‘bigly’ he is saying ‘big league.’ Jeez, I really can’t tell which it is, and I have watched almost all of his speeches. My gut tells me that he thinks ‘bigly’ is a word, even with his Ivy League credentials, such as they are. I have written quite a bit on how, as a teenager, I was Trump’s biggest fan, because I wanted to own a tower, too. I dismissed his lack of a grasp of the English language he now seems to hold in high regard–at least superficially. I believed then that all of his business savvy–he built a gleaming skyscraper on Fifth Avenue, for God’s sake–excused any of his faults. But now this man wants to be the President of the United States and he is trying to get there by destroying the fabric of America. Poor usage of the English language aside, trying to keep immigrants from crossing our borders and questioning the validity of the U.S. voting system are two very big problems for the presidential hopeful, and I have only mentioned the biggest ones, here. Trump gambled it all, and he has not only lost hope of becoming president, he has lost the respect of any decent American. And by the way, I wouldn’t stay at one of his...

Nasty Women Now Rule

IMAGE CREDIT: ABCNEWS.COM Oh, how times are changing, and it is about time. Donald Trump, Republican nominee for president, called Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton a ‘nasty woman’ during the third and final presidential debate. Nasty? Well, Janet Jackson would likely say that nasty is the new powerful. But let’s face it, men like Trump, who are used to getting their way by bullying women and anyone else who doesn’t agree with them, for that matter, think that powerful women are ‘nasty.’ Cause they don’t like the idea that a woman could take away their power. Welcome to 2016, when the tables have been turned on men like Trump. Senator Elizabeth Warren put it best during a Clinton campaign rally: “Get this Donald: Nasty women are tough, nasty women are smart and nasty women vote.” I for one, a male, think it is about time that ‘nasty women’ take control of our country’s nasty situation and fix all the things nasty men like Trump have screwed...
