  1. Time for some deep sleuthing into Trump’s doings. I wonder how gung-ho Trump would be about Anonymous or like-minded entities hacking their way through his records.

    I’m sure the Peanut Gallery composed of Trump’s toadies in this forum would agree. Turnabout is fair play, Donald. Who knows—Maybe Trump will get a chance to be indicted after all given his call to indict Hillary.

    Trump still hasn’t figured out the meaning of a maxim metaphorically expressed in the Broadway play, “Your Arms too short to box with God”.

  2. Eleanore Whitaker says:

    The time for the sleuthing was the minute Priebus took Trump’s $100 million campaign donation BRIBE. That $100 million the Baron of BS admitted to in his second debate was nothing more than $100 million in political patronage jobs. He never had the $100 million to actually put into his campaign…As always it was the Art of the BARON Of BS’s deal. And isn’t that what you have in his cabinet? At least 6 billionaires? At least six hick state drawling, swaggering blowhard Big Oil boys ready to criss cross our backyards with their filthy pipelines and pollute what’s left of the planet? Not to mention the mass privatization of our government.

    Trump is a liar, a cheat and a crook. He has been all his life. The GOP Knew it and they are the ones now that must be taken down and put out to pasture. It is time now to demand the RNC and GOP be investigated for election fraud, election rigging and putting a maniac like Trump in the most powerful position in the world.

    He is not a president. He is a CEO on steroids. Not to mention a coke nose since the 80s.

    Well…here’s what I see:
    Trump AND the GOP elections were financed by the Russians (most likely including the Russian mafia)
    The GOP has lost it’s way and is only interested in their own power – they have effectively take over our democracy and most of them are too drunk on their power to see who is really behind this take over.
    Nothing will come of these investigations (never forget Martha Mitchell)

  4. Eleanore Whitaker says:

    Some years back I had to write an article on the Enron debacle. Oddly, much of what Trump and the Republicans are pulling on our country is the very same tactics Fastow, Skilling and Ken Lay used on their employees: intimidation, threats and outright smearing of their own employees reputations who dared to question what they were doing. But, what many do not know about Enron and these corporate crooks is who “else” was involved: Citibank, J.P. Morgan Chase and the SEC that Madoff was then still heavily influencing. These CEOs like Trump’s billionaire cabinet deliberately hid what they were really up to. They had to. It wasn’t until one of the Arthur Anderson CPAs realized their numbers were all fudged and that they were literally living like pigs on their employees 401K retirement plans and jimmying their stock options that the word “whistleblower” became their worst enemy.

    Right now we are living through an ENRON redoux. You have a Titan of Trickery at the helm with an army of the same kind of money hungry “YES” men and women ready to dive in for the profits they will earn from the TRUMP wheeling and dealing.

    Get ready for the worst crash. Remember how many Enron employees ended up without jobs the day Ken Lay, Jeff Skilling and Fastow were all hauled off in handcuffs?

    When money goes to men’s heads, they are already too mentally unbalanced to be fit for leadership roles of the kind of consequence the most important person in the free world bears.

    • I of John says:

      great insight, intriguing stuff!

      • Eleanore Whitaker says:

        Some of the “insiders” who worked closest to Ken Lay and Skilling were so scared of their power they literally would sit in meetings and if Skilling said “one and one equal one million” they’d sit there and agree.

        This is the kind of power that always gets taken down. Right now, there are several of these power freaks who must be taken down or at the very least put in their places…Charles and David Koch who founded the Tea Party that nearly destroyed our lives for the last 8 years, Trump and the Texas Big Oil Boys like Tillerson, McConnell (whose wife is billionaire Elaine Chu who just got a Trump political patronage job), Ryan who is attached at the hip to the Koch boys, Chaffetz another Koch lap dog, Gowdy, Gohmert and Cotton.

        The reality is that right now the Republican Party IS Enron. The Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan IS Ken Lay. The Republican Party takes their direction from him but it doesn’t come from him…it comes from Charles and David Koch. This is the same thing as Enron. Ken Lay wasn’t really the mastermind of all that corruption…it was his second in command Jeff Skilling.

        • Eleanore Whitaker says:

          When I did my research on Enron toward the days when the SEC had NO choice but to investigate George W. Bush’s Kenny Boy Lay’s Enron, what was most intriguing was that although both Fastow and Skilling and 6 others ended up in jail and Enron managed to take down Arthur Anderson Accounting Group, then one of the Big 6, Kenny Boy never served a day in jail.

          So, although he was forced off to jail in handcuffs, he was immediately released due to the fact that he could post that multi million in bail. But then? Before he was to be officially indicted, he “died.” Two weeks AFTER his death? His wife filed for the right to all of his money…(most of which belonged to his employees he’d stolen from.). She got the money.

          But the suspicious expunging of Ken Lay’s record so his wife could lay claim to his money only made me wonder…He was George W. Bush’s friend and GHWB’s friend. GHWB had been head of the CIA and was quite capable of hiding Lay in a witness protection program.

          It’s my belief that the reason TX was in such a hurry to expunge Lay’s court records was to provide Lay with the money he needed to start over again somewhere in South America. It would be South America because there are enough countries where he could hide who are hostile to the US.

        • I of John says:

          funny how connected the well-connected are.

  5. I of John says:

    Trump may try sweeping this under the rug however this is growing larger and more involved by the day. Whoever he sticks in charge of Intel will be sitting on leaky whoopie cushions filled acidic details. Leaks are already seeping in all directions.

  6. Eleanore Whitaker says:

    Trump cannot control foreign countries. What is he going to do? Threaten nuclear war with any country that won’t obey his every wish? Hitler tried that too…and he offed himself.

    • ivory69690@yahoo.com says:

      yes he will threaten nuclear war heck he has already started the threat’s by saying he thinks other country’s should have them ones that don’t have them now

      • Eleanore Whitaker says:

        I had guy friend, an engineer, who had to spend 18 months in Moscow. One of the things I recall him saying about having to be there was, “the only ones the Russians don’t video tape are the kids and maybe not even some of them.”

        How Trump could bare face lie about being in Moscow is easily proven by FAA records of his Trump jet trips. What’s he going to do? Have all records of proof destroyed? He can’t fly from the US directly to Russia without refueling in some other country. So even if he tried to shred evidence of his son being there in 2008 before a Russian investment group or his own dealings with Putin, there are other countries who have records of his flights.

    • ivory69690@yahoo.com says:

      the DUMPSTER could very well be on the road to off himself BUT TAKING THE COUNTRY AND MAYBE THE WORLD WITH HIM

  7. ivory69690@yahoo.com says:

    Trump has yet to say whether FBI Director James Comey will be retained. The rest of Trump’s newly appointed intelligence and law enforcement chiefs will inherit the investigation, whose outcome could create national and international fallout.///as for the new team that will inherit it all if thy find some thing (which thy would and will ) thy will be the ones on the DONNY DUMP’S favorite saying and doing YOUR FIRED to them

    • Eleanore Whitaker says:

      My guess is that the Baron of BS won’t keep Comey. For one reason, Comey is like a sore thumb in Trump’s eye that would be a continuous reminder to the public of what Comey did. He will give Comey the deep six to make the investigations go away.

      • ivory69690@yahoo.com says:

        there’s a lot more to meets the eye with Comey I believe and a lot of it has thing that connect the DUMPSTER too him . don’t be surprised as I stated before in a post of Comey turning up dead some place thy are tied in some place together . and now DONNY DUMP has and is as also will in the future keep the heat on the press to a point thy might just start thinking thy rather not even deal with anything the DUMPSTER has to do about any news . and this is the DUMPSTERS plan from the start . if he can get the press TEE’D off enough thy will lose their drive to even deal with the clown car driver . he’s playing them as he has done to all that have anything to do with him . I do feel and see the HAMMER being dropped on the dumpsters head and before his term is up . him being the greedy foolish clown he is and his addiction to attention he so seeks and needs as his fix I believe will at some point be his own down fall . and it cant happen soon enough

    I hear all the time that no tallies were changed during the election. Well and good, but where were those tallies coming from? Were not from votes? And who influenced those voters to make up their mind and go and vote? Were people from outside (Russians)? Are they allowed to interfere in the election? If you can connect these dots, you will come up to a conclusion that the election wasn’t fair, free and clean to produce the outcome we have now.

    • itsfun says:

      Obama interfered with the election in Israel. Where is the outcry on that?
      There is absolutely no proof that Russia had anything at all to do with the election outcome. The biggest problem is the left having temper tantrums from getting destroyed. Just take a look at how many legislative and governor seats the left has lost since 2008. People don’t want the progressive giveaways.

      • FUZZFACE says:

        Hey itsfun! Why the temper tantrum about Israel or the investigation into Russian tampering?!? Dude, the Russians (formerly the USSR) have always been our enemies politically since after WWI. And why shouldn’t we be suspicious of the Russians when it was Trump himself who asked them publicly for help in finding Hillary’s 30,000 e-mails. I, for one, wished we could trust them. If this ordeal had turned out with Hillary winning I myself would’ve expected an investigation of any improprieties created by her poor judgement regardless of whether she won with or without outside interference.

        • itsfun says:

          I don’t know how to tell you this, but Russia was with us in WWII. No temper tantrum with Israel, just pointing out how Obama tried to interfere with their election, and then the left whines Russia. There is absolutely no evidence that Russia affected even one vote or any counting of votes.

      • Ken Walker says:

        There’s no proof that Russian interference DIDN’T influence the outcome of the election, either.

  9. CPAinNewYork says:

    There is little doubt that Trump is in Putin’s pocket. The only question is if there’s enough evidence of collusion to constitute treason and on that basis to impeach.

  10. Thoughtopsy says:

    Look at it this way:
    The circumstantial evidence all points to him being Putin’s puppet, enacting Putin’s policies, appointing Putin’s choices to StateSec and Intelligence…

    But he can create a lot fo doubt around this by simply taking a hard line on Russia, and saying things Putin would not like.

    He doesn’t.
    He NEVER does.
    He abuses everyone and every country EXCEPT Russia.
    He talks about Putin… a murderous dictator who has bombed and killed his own people… as if the guy is Jesus. Every time.

    Based on this uncharacteristic behavior of F**kface Von Clownstick being absolutely consistent about someone or something… and only saying nice things… (both of these things never happen for ANYTHING ELSE) you can be certain that they have something really bad on him.

    Debt, or video tape, or something else.
    He’s a Puppet.

  11. Eleanore Whitaker says:

    Look…there is more than enough evidence that Trump bought this presidency. First off, he wanted to get there before his biggest competitor for billions, Charles and David Koch, founders of the Tea Party that has rigged elections in Corn Pone and Mutton Chops states.

    But, here is why the Baron of BS, The Titan of Trickery HAD to borrow money from Russia. His reputation for not paying what he owed, coupled with the fact that by 2001, he was no longer a billionaire, US banks wouldn’t risk loaning him the billions he needed to pay off 3500 lawsuits and 151 federal lawsuits with tens of millions in fines attached. So, he figured out if he went to countries that were hostile to the US, the actual amount of those loans he borrowed wouldn’t be disclosed without these hostile countries risking US sanctions. And isn’t that what happened when it was discovered by 6 top US intel agencies that the Russians hacked into the election?

    Trump couldn’t borrow from any US ally in Europe or anywhere else because these countries would not risk not disclosing the amounts of the loans. And in the US, any borrower must report foreign loans over a certain amount. That’s the law.

    The Baron of BS schmoozed with Putin, knowing Putin would never disclose the amount of Trump’s loans, if for no other reason than to be one up on the US with a secret the Russians knew but the US President Trump hated so much didn’t.

    Trump is as spiteful a nasty vicious evil bastard as Roy Cohn who right now is dancing a jig in hell at the most successful Cohn clone there has ever been. Cohn by the way, like Trump died owing the US government over $1 million in taxes and he defrauded several of his “friends” from whom he borrowed money and never paid them back. Not unlike Trump.

  12. Eleanore Whitaker says:

    “Treason against the United States shall consist only of levying war against them or in “adhering to their enemies, giving them “AID” and Comfort.”

    Figure it out for yourself. Every word out of The Titan of Trickery’s mouth is treason with regard to Putin. He plans to make deals with an enemy of the US by trying to gloss over that Russia’s Putin is as much an illegitimate president as the Baron of BS is. Putin rigged his own election and when Hillary Clinton pointed that out, Putin was enraged. Putin is a murderer. As such, he cannot be considered legitimate in any way.

    And if the Baron of BS plans on trying to make nice to the country he owes billions to, that is giving AID and comfort to a country Americans know is an enemy brazen enough to interfere in our election process.
