Trump Used His Aliases For Much More — And Worse — Than Gossip

Share

Donald Trump told a real whopper this week — and we’ve got fresh proof right here.

What we can show is that when Donald Trump made deceptive phone calls over decades — posing as a Trump Organization vice president named “John Miller” or “John Barron” — he was not always puffing up his reputation as a philandering ladies’ man. In his fictional identities, Trump could also be quite threatening, as revealed in the brief clip below from Trump: What’s The Deal?a documentary film that he successfully suppressed for 25 years with threats of litigation.

The story erupted Thursday when The Washington Post put online a recording of Trump posing as “John Miller,” in a 1991 interview with People magazine reporter Sue Carswell. The fictitious “Miller” described himself as a newly hired Trump Organization publicist for the company boss.

Carswell was reporting a story about Trump’s pending divorce from his first wife, Ivana, and whether he planned to marry his longtime mistress, Marla Maples. Their relationship was really hot news at the time, at least in the tabloid newspapers and the tabloid television shows that Trump follows closely whenever they mention him, his self-proclaimed sexual desirability, and the notion that the world’s most gorgeous women cannot resist him.

Even though “John Miller” told Carswell that he was brand new on the job he gave lengthy, detailed and nuanced observations on Trump’s emotional state, various women in his life and whether he was ready to commit to another marriage. “Miller” must have been a really fast study. No publicist I have known in the past 49 years would dare to mention such intimate details about a brand new boss, much less so with the bold authority displayed by “John Miller.”

The morning after the Post story was posted online Trump called the NBC Today show to deny posing as “Miller.” He insisted – emphatically, repeatedly and unequivocally –that his voice was not on the recording. He even offered a conspiracy theory, suggesting it was one of many Trump impersonators trying to harm his reputation.

Asked by host Savannah Guthrie about news reports galore in the early 1990s that Trump routinely planted stories with journalists who received calls from “John Miller” or “John Barron,” Trump replied:

“No, and it was not me on the phone – it was not me on the phone. And it doesn’t sound like me on the phone, I will tell you that, and it was not me on the phone.” It was him, of course.

But “John Barron” didn’t just puff Trump’s sexual boasting in the press. “Barron” was also menacing, as revealed in the following film clip about his abuse of Polish immigrant construction workers – and the attorney who tried to help them.

 

 

Trump: What’s The Deal recounts a wide variety of Trump lies, exaggerations, and manipulations, but the misconduct of greatest interest to voters may be his threatening litigation in a scheme to deny payment to about 200 illegal Polish immigrants tearing down the old Bonwit Teller building on Fifth Avenue (an act of architectural vandalism). Many of the men lacked hardhats or face masks, used sledge hammers rather than power tools, had to pull out live electric wires with their bare hands, in a building laced with asbestos — all in blatant violation of worker safety laws.

A lawyer trying to get the workers paid the meager $4 to $6 per hour that Trump owed them received a bullying telephone call from one “John Barron,” as recounted in the film:

Narrator: Chapter Six. [Voiceover various images of Trump Tower and Trump]

 Threaten the lawyer that the Polish illegals hired after your cheap contractor defaults on paying them. Make sure that the threats are untraceable, in case the guy isn’t scared off.

 Interview On Camera: John Szabo (lawyer for Polish workers):

 “Mr. Barron had told me in the one telephone conversation that I had with him, ‎that Donald Trump was upset because I was ruining his credit, reputation by filing the mechanics liens [legal action intended to enforce payment]. And Mr. Trump was thinking of filing a personal lawsuit against me for $100 million for defaming his, uh…reputation.”

 Narrator: It turned out that Mr. Barron was Donald Trump’s favorite alias.

 When this was revealed Trump said, “What of it? Ernest Hemingway used a pen name, didn’t he?”

You can now view the entire 80-minute documentary, which is a superb examination of Trump’s mendacity and manipulation of journalists and politicians. It’s available for $9.99 on iTunes. If any movie chain had the backbone to show the film each seat would cost at least that much. But for the price of one theater ticket and a few beers, you can have a party, inviting Trump fans and detractors to watch the film and discuss what it reveals.

As for how we know that Trump lied to Savannah Guthrie, that’s beyond dispute. He admitted under oath in the federal lawsuit on behalf of the Polish workers that he had used the name John Barron, which resulted in a spate of news stories. In the aftermath Trump continued his deception, but using the name “John Miller.”

Later he admitted that “Miller” was a phony name, too. He confessed the truth to People Magazine, two weeks after its initial story by Sue Carswell made fun of him for trying to pass himself off as “John Miller.”

Following a lengthy trial in federal court, the real Donald Trump was found to have engaged in a conspiracy to cheat the Polish workers. The judge who decided the case found Trump liable for pay and fringe benefits and also found that his testimony — that he was unaware of what was going on during the demolition phase on Trump Tower — was not credible. Not only was he photographed at the site, but his temporary office across Fifth Avenue had a picture window view so he could observe the whole process of tearing down Bonwit’s and putting up his eponymous tower.

Ultimately the case was settled with a sealed agreement that neither side could discuss. But the record shows that what Trump denied was not just a juvenile prank, but part of a complex and lenghty stealth campaign by Trump to sell and protect himself in ways he was unwilling to do honestly.

Whether it’s the story planted on the cover of the New York Post with Marla Maples supposedly saying sex with Trump was the best ever (a quote she later denied ever uttering), his claims of multi-billionaire net worth when he could not pay his bills, or any other tall tale that puffed up the Trump name — or his ongoing efforts to suppress any fact that might tarnish his image — we now possess an important insight into the Trump mentality.

The man who wants us to give him the nuclear launch codes behaves like a child when he is caught with his hand in the cookie jar, crumbs all over his face. He denies the undeniable. And like a four year-old toddler, he thinks Americans are so gullible that they will believe him.

When Trump shifts his story and says he forgot, as he probably will, remember this: Last fall, he bragged that he has “the world’s greatest memory.”

        Just watched the documentary over at whowhatwhy.org. It’s 12 episodes and episode 9 is particularly eye opening. All I can say is WOW! I grew up here in NYC and remember him always in the news for one sketchy action or another. However, I was too young to understand the full extent of why he was severely disliked here in the city. It is no wonder he lost Manhattan in the NY primary. Everyone needs to see this documentary and see that the con we watch play out in the “news” everyday is nothing new. Running for president is his latest and greatest con yet. We should all pay attention before the unthinkable election of a person who, in my opinion, exhibits most of the characteristics of a psychopath.

        1. Diane May 15, 2016

          Don’t waste your time with PSI – the video is not on whowhatwhy, which is just a Trump-is-Hillary–plant/anti-Hillary site.

            Yeah, I went there directly and didn’t find what he said was there.

          2. P.S.L. May 16, 2016

            It didn’t look like an anti-Hillary site to me. Why would a documentary showing the Con’s true colors be on an anti-Hillary site? In any case, the documentary is there and it’s also available on You Tube too for anyone interested.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hq0zw0hPoUM (Trump: what’s
            the deal)

            And while you’re at it, also see another documentary of how Con shafted an intimidated the local people in Scotland when they refused to sell their land so he can build his golf course. They organized against the blowhard in a group called Tripping Up Trump.

            Some people obviously want to discourage us from seeking information and want us to be brainless followers who blindly follow.

          3. Diane May 16, 2016

            It would be nice to have a simple discussion on articles without comments trying to high-jack for their on purposes.

            I earlier recommended ignoring P.S.L.’s suggestion to go to whowhatwhy.com to see the video referenced in above article becauseI could not find a link to the video and the site was simply an anti-Hillary site. I didn’t call PSL a troll but……

            I don’t know if posting just a response to PSL, other readers can see my response so I am posting it both ways. You may find this information helful or interesting, especially if you are not interested in anti-Hillary BS.

            PSL has challenged my assessment, but rather than providing the whowhatwhy.com link to the video, he refers us to the youtube link which the article says has charges a fee to view.

            PSL also claimes this site doesn’t like like an anti-Hillary site.

            Responding to PSL, not only is the website anti-Hillary, it is pro-Bernie, and therefore, would also be anti-Trump, ergo, it shows anti-Trump opinions, etc.

            PSL also accused me of trying to “discourage us from
            seeking information and want us to be brainless followers who blindly follow.”

            Talk about brainless!! Any one who can read clearly
            sees the site is anti-Hillary. Below are articles titles on the site pages that are clearly anti-Hillary and contain false information.

            “How NY Times Hid Hillary Hawkishness – “The Times, Baker says, deliberately waited until it was too late to harm her presidential campaign, before revealing how much of a hawk she actually has been.”

            “How Moral Differences Between Sanders and Clinton Were Obscured” – “there’s no question in my mind that the Times failed to really focus on fundamental moral and ethical differences between the candidates, and thereby did real damage to Sanders.”

            “Secret Email Leaked from Hillary’s Server: The Real Story of Bush, Blair and Big Oil’s Iraq Agenda”

            This article does not even contain the words “Hillary” or “Clinton,” probably because the connection to Clinton is nonexistent. It contains a link to a British publication that attempts to implicate Clinton in the Bush-Blair discussions pre-Iraq War, an makes derogatory statement on Clinton but no linkage between the “secret email” and Clinton.

            “Smoking gun emails reveal Blair’s ‘deal in blood’ with George Bush over Iraq war was forged a YEAR before the invasion had even started”

            This article claims a court “forced” Clinton to reveal her email. That is false. The court forced the STATE DPT to produce Clinton’s email in response to a FOIA.

            The document described as “secret email” is actually a memo prepared by Colin Powell.

            The memo could not have been on Clinton’s server because it is marked “SECRET” and contains the word “CLASSIFIED.” Clinton has denied sending/receiving any classified information on her server. No proof has been found in the DOJ/FBI/State Dpt investigations that any email on Hillary’s server was marked as classified.

            “What Both Hillary and the GOP Are Covering Up About Libya – It Was Never About Security or Human Rights ”

            I would have to spend a lot of time researching to verify – or refute – the claims about Clinton in this article. But whether true or false, it proves my point that this website is
            anti-Clinton.

            I am not bothering to read these articles, but clearly by the titles they are anti-Clinton.

            “Did Hillary Clinton Get an Assist from Mitch McConnell?”

            “Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush are Running on the Same Ticket”

            “Lindsey Graham thinks Kim Jong-un is easier to talk to than Hillary Clinton.”

            “Another Secret Revealed from Camp Hillary Clinton – Progressives are skeptical of a Wall Street-backed war hawk
            running for the Democratic nomination? “

      It is unlikely that any one person could “destroy” the United States. But Trump could do significant harm – for example, by getting rid of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), thereby taking away non-emergency healthcare from millions of Americans, while giving tax cuts to anyone with capital gains income exceeding $250,000/year. Trump would likely benefit personally from such a tax cut.

      Trump could also harm future generations by refusing to mitigate climate change; perhaps even subsidizing dirty fuels such as coal and oil. Just the other day be made a big show over how much he wanted to see coal production increase.

      So Trump could easily harm millions of people while personally benefiting financially, and not being around long enough to see the consequences of his decisions.

      1. TZToronto May 15, 2016

        The worst situation would be one in which a Republican Congress passes laws harmful to the country and Trump rubber-stamps them into law–and any court challenge is denied by a Supreme Court packed with brain-dead conservatives. Trump must not be elected because a three-branch conservative government would mean the end of the USA as we have known it.

      For his and his cronies short time gains & our long-time loss.

      GOP GOAL: privatizing Social Security (imagine the 2008 stock market and ALL of your pension funds going POOF).

      GOP GOAL: making MediCare go voucher (good luck, seniors, trying to find a doctor willing to take those).

      GOP GOAL: privatizing education (emphasis wouldn’t be on results, but on generating profit by hiring and paying the lowest wages to the teachers willing to take it).

      GOP GOAL: deregulating just about everything to improve the bottom line for corporations (hard hats? we don’t need no stinking hard hats. Employers and health insurance? We don’t want to provide group access to cut rates anymore – get it yourself on the open market. If you can…).

      GOP GOAL: eliminating the EPA (so corporations are free to discharge whatever manufacturing byproduct into our water / air / soil).

      And on. And on. AND ON.

      It’s not that he wants to destroy this country (it’s never been that important to him) it’s that if what he wants and what he gets leads to dire consequences to this nation then the people it affects should have protected their interests better. This will be played out as POTUS just as it’s been played out through his business interests. If we somehow make this….. Person our leader in chief then we will deserve everything he bestows upon himself at the cost of anyone around him. I’m confident though that much of his dirty laundry will be revealed once he’s nominated and it should start with his revealing his tax returns For someone who says he will reveal his tax returns AFTER he’s elected president should throw up a red flag even with his supporters (at least the one’s with cognoscente thought processes).

      What you apparently don’t understand is Trump is running as a Republican – and the GOP is looking to continue enacting legislation that sends the American middleclass down the river while rewarding people like Trump (the upper 10%). So the GOP will offer Donald deals which he can’t refuse – ones that are great for upper 10% and terrible for the country and the everyone not in the upper 10%.
      So if Congress stays in the GOP’s hands, America will continue to slide backward in time with it’s people and infrastructure going down the tubes.

      Let me post you a couple positive things for Hillary:

      But that night in the theater two years ago, the other six brave women came up on the stage. Anabella De Leon of Guatemala pointed to Hillary Clinton, who was sitting right in the front row, and said, “I met her and my life changed.” And all weekend long, women from all over the world said the same thing:

      “I’m alive because she came to my country and she talked to our leaders, because I heard her speak, because I read about her.”

      “I’m alive because she went on our local TV and talked about my work, and now they’re afraid to kill me.”

      “I’m alive because she came to my village, put her arm around me, and had a photograph taken together.”

      For much more go here:

      You won’t see Hillary Clinton in the same light ever again

      http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/10/18/1248523/-You-won-t-see-Hillary-Clinton-in-the-same-light-ever-again

      And here’s another good one:

      Hillary Clinton is smart, steady and able to rebound quickly from defeat. When her attempt at health care reform failed during her husband’s first term, Clinton worked with senators from both parties – Democrat Ted Kennedy and Republican Orrin Hatch — to create the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which cut the uninsured rate of American children in half. More than eight million children have coverage because of the program.

      Critics who claim Clinton has no record of accomplishment despite her sparkling resume need to look closer at her record.

      She helped secure more than $21 billion for World Trade Center redevelopment. She led investigations into the health problems of 9/11 first responders. She promoted increased National Institutes of Health funding for research into cancer and asthma. She was the principal author of sanctions – particularly on oil imports to the European Union — that brought Iran to the negotiating table. She helped bring about a 2012 cease-fire between Hamas and Israel that headed off an Israeli invasion of Gaza. She named an “ambassador at large” for women’s rights.

      “Nearly every foreign policy victory of President Obama’s second term,” said Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., “has Secretary Clinton’s fingerprints on it.”

            That’s right. ACA says you can but Health Insurance CEOs lied and purposely cancelled policies such that people couldn’t keep their doctor. It was health insurance company CEOs who lied to Obama telling them they would honor the ACA legislation and then didn’t honor it!!!!!!

          6. Independent1 May 26, 2016

            Pure hogwash!! During the runup to ACA becoming the law, Obama met with a number of health insurance CEOs and the head of the overall Health Insurers Association. And they all promised Obama they would honor what was in the ACA legislation – and the ACA legislation clearly grandfathers all existing health policies – which means NO ONE who already had private health insurance should have had to get a new policy – which means they should have been able to keep their doctor.

            But the health insurers made sure all existing policies were terminated – forcing people into new policies which may have prevented them from keeping their policies.

      It doesn’t matter What Trump does or doesn’t do at this point. Anything he says will be accepted as absolute truth by the faithful, gullible Trump supporters–even if he contradicts himself from one sentence to the next. It’s funny how President Obama’s birth certificate was questioned when made public, but we’re supposed to ignore and accept Trump’s refusal to provide his tax returns. What’s good for the goose is not, for Trump, good for the gander. Trump’s inconsistency is, for his supporters, simply more of his pseudo-anti-establishment credibility. In short, believe NOTHING this man says. He has no policies, and he has nothing to offer the United States.

        You are polling at 20% with women, stupid, who comprise more than half the electorate. Your numbers will not go up with them. In addition to losing them, you will lose Gays, Jews, Latinos, Asians and African Americans, all by wide margins…70-30 or worse. Not to Mention every single Muslim in the United States. You didn’t even win 50% of Conservatives in the primaries, and a lot of them (correctly) think Trump is a dangerous jerk.

        You’ve already lost, and you don’t know it.

        FYI. Thought you should know. Self-delusion is not a pretty thing.

        You obviously know nothing about your Candidate,”Trump the Fraud”. How about looking into Trump University, or his NY Mob connections. How about his 3500 lawsuits in which he beat down contractors and employees to save money, destroying their lives and businesses. How about his truthfulness? Name any other politician who has earned 7 or 9% truthfulness ranking? Or lies? 76% lies? Then we have his totally inconsistent statements, his positions which change weekly. Then his speeches, all made at 4th Grade School Yard Bully level, with not a word how he will accomplish anything he says “I” or “We” will do.

        The only reason he is in this election is for himself. He has no solutions, no answers, no plan,except to get elected. His website should be http://www.donaldtrumpdotCon.com..

      Don’t forget where liars will end up.
      Rev. 21.8:

      But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

        You do know that no one knows who wrote any of the Bible and that Jews including Jesus did not believe in Hell or devils.

        Those are pagan beliefs. Anything written about Hell and devils is not anything Jesus believed and it is pagan. If you are pagan, nothing wrong with that. All superstitions are the same but don’t pretend you are Christian.

        I like the Gospel of Philip:

        “As for the Wisdom who is called “the barren,” she is the mother of the angels. And the companion of the […] Mary Magdalene. […] loved her more than all the disciples, and used to kiss her often on her mouth. The rest of the disciples […]. They said to him “Why do you love her more than all of us?” The Savior answered and said to them,”Why do I not love you like her? When a blind man and one who sees are both together in darkness, they are no different from one another. When the light comes, then he who sees will see the light, and he who is blind will remain in darkness.”

        1. SamyyCiao May 15, 2016

          Wrong nut case – Jesus casts our Demons on a regular basis – go takes some more meth!

          1. Axixic May 15, 2016

            Jesus was a Jew. He did not believe in demons.

            No one knows who wrote the Gospels. The Gospels were written decades after the deaths of the original witnesses and they didn’t have authors.

            Unknown scholars selected the materiel that is the Gospels and they assigned the names to them. We have no idea how many thousands of pages were discarded that might have been more accurate, but it didn’t suit the story the scholars wanted.

            The belief of demons, Hell and Heaven came from the pagans who joined the early church.

            Christmas is really Saturnalia on Dec. 25th, a pagan Roman holiday and a gruesome one at that. The early church allowed the barbaric and cruel celebration because they wanted followers.

            The idea that god needed a human sacrifice to forgive you for something you never did should gross you out, but I guess not. Zeus was a better god. Zeus could forgive with a thought and never allowed one of his many half human children to be injured.

            A list of the 21 saviors who died for your sins, all before Jesus:

            1. Mithra Christ of the Persia (600 BC).
            2. Hesus of the Druids (834 BC).
            3. Yesu Krishna of India (900BC).
            4. Attis the Christ of Phrygia (1200 BC).
            5. Dionysus of Greece (500 BC).
            6. Horus the savior of Egypt (3000 BC).
            7. Hindoo Sakia of India (600 BC).

          You do realize right, that Jesus was a liberal and that the term Conservative Christian is an oxymoron – no true Conservative can be a Christian.

          1. Leftout May 16, 2016

            I-1 , Jesus was just like me, I am conservative and nationalistic , but compassionate….. Jesus was a conservative in that he did not want his religion illegitimized by the crooked high priests of the day, as per today’s, corrupted by PACs , US congress. I am a hypocritical Christian , searching for the God that may exist out there . I believe in one God and no other accoutrements are necessary to define Such.

          2. Independent1 May 16, 2016

            Wrong!! Conservatives by definition think of themselves before they think of others – the polar opposite of what a true Christian is. Keep on dreaming dirtbag.

          3. Leftout May 16, 2016

            Your Conservative definition is not correct and you have been Misguided by looking inward and not being an adherent of resourcefulness and not engendering tested values, to be changed if needed to be . All has been derived and written in the books of antiquity and the Constitution , well thought out by great minds who had time to think.

          4. Independent1 May 16, 2016

            My definition is not incorrect. In fact, in trying to pretend that conservatives are the slightest bit compassionate (something that a true Christian should be by nature), conservatives have had to create a sect called Compassionate Conservative.

            And the GOP proves everyday that conservatives think about their own pocketbooks (welfare) first before thinking of someone else when the first question they ever ask with respect to creating or passing legislation is – who’s going to pay for it even if the legislation is for disaster relief.

            They proved that in spades when they refused to provide the monies for hurricane Sandy victims because they couldn’t figure out what funding to steal the money from (which Peter to rob to pay Paul). And then Christie proved it in spades too by funneling a large chunk of the Sandy relief money to his crony friends in the construction industry instead of to the Sandy victims.

            And they proved it when they even signed the agreement with a fat rich guy that they wouldn’t pass a piece of legislation that raised the tax on the rich by $1 no matter how much that legislation may help a sector of the American public or our country.

            The GOP proves in spades everyday that it doesn’t care one iota how much Americans suffer as long as they can shovel money into their pockets and their wealthy donors pockets.

            It’s Devil Worshippers like you who are deluding themselves and living an outright lie!!!

      From theFiscalTimes:

      How Barack Obama Amazed His Harvard Law Professor

      Even back then, says Tribe, Obama had the ability to see all sides of complex issues – and not necessarily to his detriment. “He displayed the ability to see a multifaceted problem in all of its complexity – and you want presidents to do that. The separate question of decision-making style, of managerial style, how somebody handles himself or herself on the world stage – I obviously had no [foreknowledge of that]. He certainly saw every side of everything – and deeply. He really has deep insight into a number of things, including physics, and history, and political science, and seemingly a lot of law, though this was before he [finished] law school.”

      “He worked with me on one of my most challenging articles in the Harvard Law Review, ‘The Curvature of Constitutional Space: What Lawyers Can Learn from Modern Physics.’”

      “If you look at that article,” recounted Tribe, “the first footnote acknowledges the help of Barack Obama and, of all people, Gene Sperling [former director of the National Economic Council under President Obama].” The article appeared in November 1989, volume 103 of the Harvard Law Review. (Obama graduated from Harvard Law in 1991.)

        These characters were amazed at Obama surely , since he never appeared in other than remedial courses . They were amazed at how well he could use his classmates to write a paper . He does read well however but seems to fumble at extemporaneous retorts , did you ever notice that ?

        1. Independent1 May 15, 2016

          You are such a pathological lying dirtbag that it’s disgusting!!

          From NPR:

          Obama Made A Strong First Impression At Harvard

          Professor Charles Ogletree plays a similar role in Obama’s life. In 1989, Ogletree taught a non-credit Saturday course to give first-year students a basic set of skills in law school.

          Ogletree remembers the student who always arrived on time, sat in the front row, and was professorial almost to a fault. After answering the question, Obama would say, “But Al, who talked earlier, had a very good point when he said X. And Sarah, I think she really captured it when she said Y. And if you think about Latoya, her analysis was …” at which point Ogletree would interject, “Barack, I’m teaching this class, not you!” That might sound like the arrogance Obama is sometimes accused of, but to Ogletree it sounded like this student was trying to bring everyone into the conversation.

          Even then, classmate Ken Mack recalls, Obama stood apart. Mack is now a professor at Harvard Law School and author of the book Representing the Race: The Creation of the Civil Rights Lawyer. “He seemed to know who he was, be very grounded,” says Mack. There was no sign of the kid people used to call “Barry.”

          http://www.npr.org/2012/05/22/153214284/obamas-harvard-days-began-with-exclamation-point

          1. Leftout May 16, 2016

            Prof. Ogletree as anyone else would remember if anyone would arrive on time ???? It would be more noticeable if Obama arrived late since he was a sleepy but, lazy boy. Also Mack may have remembered hearsay about Barry , since Mack was not at Harvard til years after Obamas graduating . My point is that noone has first hand acquaintances with Obama and Latoya since they were in remedial classes for the academically challenged. A nice jesture by Harvard , they did similar for the kennedys and other political types . Mack never practiced law because his personality was not suited to hard work, he later obtained degrees in history and teaches remdial courses in Black privilege at Princeton.

        2. Jan123456 May 16, 2016

          since he never appeared in other than remedial courses .

          Remedial courses at Harvard Law School??? Really? You can say that with a straight face?

          Unreal.

          1. Leftout May 16, 2016

            Surely , athletes and others get remdial help. Obama was such a lazy POS that they had to push him through. Under cover of darkness . He and Michelle never practiced law. Since it was too much work for them, so they decided to have al sharptoned their way the

            Undergrads that bring in big bucks to a University because they can handle a ball…sure. But Harvard Law School?

            And you haven’t the slightest clue of what you are talking about regarding them never practicing law. Typical of the right, you parrot what you read in the playbook talking points.

          3. Leftout May 16, 2016

            I do not use talking points . These facts are known from many “diverse” sources.

            Diverse sources? Name one that isn’t right wing. Just one.

            If you go to the Illinois Bar website, you will see that it is proud to include both Barack and Michele as members. (Looks like he passed the bar on his own, right?)

            They met at Sidley & Austin, the Chicago law firm at which they both worked.

            So, where DID you get the idea that they never practiced law?

    3. Axixic May 15, 2016

      It was in Time magazine at the time Obama was elected the first Black president of the Harvard Law Review. That tells you he was an honor student.

      Drumpf told us about his high “marks” at Wharton and that he was an honor student until no one in school with him could remember him and his name wasn’t on any of the honor materiel at graduation.

      Drumpf lied about his grades. Obama never said anything about his grades, good or bad, but we do know Obama graduated with honors at Harvard. Drumpf was never an honor student.

      1. SamyyCiao May 15, 2016

        Trump never hung out with anti American first class bum Rev Wright either!

        1. Axixic May 15, 2016

          No, Drumpf hung out with sluts, such as the current Mrs. Drumpf, and other trash. Married 3 times, a serial adulterer and brags about it.

          Obama is an atheist like most of our greatest presidents so he only knew Wright through his wife and her church. Like most husbands, he joined his wife’s church.

          There is no proof that Obama or Oprah, who was also a member, were ever present when Wright made his ridiculous comments.

          Drumpf was present however when Melanoma posed nude on his plane and he knew she sold the pictures to GQ. He also knew about her nude, lesbian sex act photos.

          The Short Fingered Vulgarian said that he would “do” his oldest daughter if she wasn’t his daughter, (I bet that didn’t stop him) and he talked about his youngest daughter when she was one year old, being hot and wondered what size her boobs would be when she was older.

          You can’t buy class like that.

            Ah! Do you really want to go there?? Obama has never associated with unsavory mob related characters like Trump.

            You better read this before you open your big yap about who has associated with the worst types of characters:

            Donald Trump’s Mob Ties (some excerpts):

            Trump’s neglected to mention that his initial partners on his first deal in Atlantic City reputedly had their own organized crime connections: Kenneth Shapiro was identified by state and federal prosecutors as the investment banker for late Philadelphia mob boss Nicky Scarfo according to reports issued by New Jersey state commissions examining the influence of organized crime, and Danny Sullivan, a former Teamsters Union official, is described in an FBI file as having mob acquaintances. Both controlled a company that leased parcels of land to Trump for the 39-story hotel-casino.

            Barrett also reported that Trump once met Anthony “Fat Tony” Salerno, front boss of the Genovese crime family, at the Manhattan townhouse of their mutual lawyer — infamous J. Edgar Hoover sidekick Roy Cohn. The author explained that Salerno’s company supplied all the concrete used in the Trump Towers in New York.

            Trump later confided to a biographer that the twosome were “tough guys,” relaying a rumor that Sullivan, a 6-foot, 5-inch bear of a man, killed Jimmy Hoffa, the Teamsters boss who disappeared in July 1975.

          And more lies!!

        2. charleo1 May 16, 2016

          What about that million dollars? Ever think to ask? He, [Obama] has released his tax returns. Was a million dollars unaccounted for? Ever thought about how difficult it is to hide a million dollars from the IRS? Ask child sexual predator Dennis Hastert, who got sent to jail for trying to hide hush money he was paying to one of his victims. And it was far less than a million. So, why hasn’t any of these questions occurred to you, before you paste smears of which there is absolutely no proof, against the President of your country? Ever wonder that about yourself? Why it is you’ve lost your ability to think critically, about these made up stories? Or why you feel it’s not important to ask pertinent questions prior to believing them? Ever feel it’s patently unfair? Think about how it would make you feel, if people made up derisive lies about you, and anonymously, like measly cowards, spread them around. Now, don’t you feel kinda stupid for repeating such a thing? Well, you should.

        3. Independent1 May 16, 2016

          And just for the record, here’s proof from factcheck.org that you’re posting a lie:

          Obama’s college records are not “sealed” by a court order, as this graphic would have you believe. It would be illegal under federal law (the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974) for Occidental, Columbia or Harvard Law School to give any former student’s records to reporters or members of the public without that person’s specific, written permission. Obama hasn’t released them, but neither have other presidential candidates released their college records. George W. Bush’s grades at Yale eventually became public, but only because somebody leaked them to the New Yorker magazine. Bush himself refused to release them, according to a 1999 profile in the Washington Post.

          http://www.factcheck.org/2012/07/obamas-sealed-records/

        4. Jan123456 May 16, 2016

          Of course you have not a shred of evidence he spent a penny “sealing” his records. You just read word for word from the right wing playbook talking points.

          How can you righties take yourselves seriously?

          1. Meg May 16, 2016

            Perhaps “sealed” was not the right word. Have you ever seen any of his school records? Suppose not.

          2. Jan123456 May 16, 2016

            Except for George W Bush, whose records were leaked, I have never seen the school records of any president.

            That being said, Occidental, Columbia and Harvard Law all proudly acknowledge Obama as a student/graduate….and in Harvard’s case Magna Cum Laude.

            What would knowing his English 101 grade do for you?

          3. Meg May 16, 2016

            It is highly suspect that he registered as a foreign student.

          4. Jan123456 May 16, 2016

            No, it is not.

            1. The AP, under whose byline the original story was run, disavowed the story.
            2. The group that purported to release the story, Americans for Freedom of Information, did not exist at the time the story went out. It does now, but for purposes of debunking Obama myths.
            3. The story he said he got the Fullbright scholarship for foreign students while at Occidental. However if you look up that scholarship, it is only for graduate study.
            4. The story was published on APRIL FIRST! (Does that tell you anything?)

          5. Jan123456 May 16, 2016

            Just in case I was wrong on your source of the “highly suspect” information, the Occidental ID showing him as a foreign student has also been debunked. Occidental said it did not even use the bar-coded IDs when Obama attended for one thing.

            Is there any other “source” that makes you believe he registered as a foreign student.

      3. AgLander May 15, 2016

        Yet, you can’t find any Harvard grads from Obama’s class that can remember ever seeing him on campus or in class! (Things that make one go, hmmmmmmmm.)

          And more of your pathological lying!!!

        2. Jan123456 May 16, 2016

          Incorrect. All you have to do is search “Obama Harvard classmates” then read from other than right wing newsletters. However, that’s only if you want more than the right wing playbook talking points. (Not counting on it.)

          Ken Mack
          Brad Berenson
          Hill Harper
          Charles Ogeltree (professor)

          Plus Harvard publicly has him as editor of its law review. Do you honestly think that an institution of its stature would risk its stellar reputation by lying about that?

          He went there.

      4. Leftout May 15, 2016

        You do know of course that Harvard changed its requirement s for editor of the Law Review to students of “diverse ” unique character as opposed to students that had superior academic credentials , to promote sensitivity for students that were academically challenged and to preserve their self esteem . Obama used his law degree very little since it was too difficult for the lazy yoot.

        1. Independent1 May 16, 2016

          http://www.nytimes.com/1990/02/06/us/first-black-elected-to-head-harvard-s-law-review.html

          “Mr. Obama succeeds Peter Yu, a first-generation Chinese-American, as president of The Law Review. After graduation, Mr. Yu plans to serve as a clerk for Chief Judge Patricia Wald on the of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

          Mr. Yu said Mr. Obama’s election ”was a choice on the merits, but others may read something into it.”

          “The first female editor of The Harvard Law Review was Susan Estrich, in 1977, who recently resigned as a professor at Harvard Law School to take a similar post at the University of Southern California. Ms. Estrich was campaign manager for Gov. Michael S. Dukakis of Massachusetts in his campaign for the Presidency in 1988.”

          Do you have any idea how many presidents we have had who did not go to college? Lincoln had one semester of formal education.

          Obviously you never went to college and that is why it is such a big deal to you.

          1. Leftout May 16, 2016

            Agreed , just what I said , Peter Yu, and Susan were selected
            Due to academic achievement , these characterostics were changed to include attributes not based on academics but on other watered down, socially related markers.
            I managed to academically squeeze in 4 graduate degrees all paid for by my own self.

            Getting a Bob’s Big Boy Chef degree, Junior High, Elementary School and a Pep Boy mechanic degree are not what we usually consider graduate degrees. Go BS someone else.

            Cite where the qualifications were changed. The President of the Harvard Law Review is “elected.” Look that word up so you will know what it means.

          4. Leftout May 16, 2016

            MS, MD,Ph.D and I can fix farm tractors , JD and Ford. You can look up when qualifications were broadened

          5. Axixic May 16, 2016

            Nobody cares and getting a degree at some religious nut school still means you are ignorant.

            You worry about Obama’s grades. That is funny.

        Yes I am calling on Obama to show who is the brightest . I bet Obama wins because he snookered the admissions office into accepting an a$& Hole . Do you really think I am liberal . That is funny .

    THE DEPRAVITY OF NARCISSISM, MATERIALISM, AND SIMILAR DEFECTS—Part 1

    Donald Trump(aka “Lord Fauntleroy”, “Norman Bates”, etc) has put on display an inordinate infatuation with himself that even Mussolini and Adolf might hesitate at exposing themselves to the extent that his Lordship has..

    The fact that the GOP has a ridiculous and childish proviso that any of their candidates is beholden to profess their consent to accept a certified dysfunctional person is a further sign that the partisan political system is doomed. Said proviso is treated with such reverence as though it were a document personally bequeuathed to it by God Himself.

    That such a format has served so successfully for so many decades as a venue for encouraging adolescent and juvenile behavior is a reflection of the dismal state that the status quo Religion of the nation has fallen to —otherwise, the Religious institution that represents the majority of Americans’ avowed allegiance would have been able to steer Trump and those loyal to him as well as a divisive and obstinate political Wing to adopt and put into action the counsels of Jesus.

    This same lack of effectiveness in moderating/edifying the hearts and minds of the vast majority is directly proportional to the level of slavish support which he has garnered. Instead of valuing modesty, humility, and comportment, this candidate in particular and those who lavish such admiration on him, are content and comfortable with bigotry, buffoonery, a self-centered display of personality, a fondness for catchy slogans(e.g. “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN”), and are gung-ho for anyone who titillates their desire for the gross and the mundane—many refer to this as “telling it like it is” without concern for whether the “telling” is appropriate.

    The fault is not Christianity in its Essence, but rather is an indication that Religion is Progressive and that once it passes its “Omega” and no longer is capable of reviving its adherents, and therefore the “New Wine” of a subsequent Religion is required to further “educate” humanity. (The same condition of losing efficacy affects Islam and all the previous Revelations which have each appeared from the same Source though called by different names, and been ordained to be “renewed” by a subsequent Revelation).

    Sine this “renewal” has not been allowed to take place, as a result primarily of the “Ecclesiastics”, then the majority in America and elsewhere in the world are suffering the consequences.

    It behooves us all to learn what that new “Chapter” in this “Progression” is—www.bahai.org is a good place to start.

    Otherwise, we’ll have to be afflicted with the sort of farces like this one that is assaulting reason, propriety, and common-sense; similar farcical and tragic scenarios are being played out in Europe, Russia, the Far East, North Africa and the sub-Saharan regions, the Middle East, and Brazil, to name a few.

    Just my unofficial comment. “Part 2” will be later.

    Meanwhile, I want to know more about things that DO count, such as the FBI criminal investigation of the presumptive Democrat nominee, Hillary Clinton, and her attempts to run her own shadow government through a non secure, home brew computer server….all the while compromising national security. When will the knock be happening at 6 AM on the front door of the Clinton mansion with FBI agents waiting for her to open the door so one of the agents can say those dreaded words…..”book her, Dano”.

This is just the tip of the Trump Ice Berg……My God, get your priorities straight you idiot! I assume you’re one of Trump’s supporters Trump referred to, “could shoot someone in the middle of 5th Avenue” and get away with it. Racist, bigoted, misogynist creep from start to finish his sole and constant allure for Trumpeters……..and BTW you are getting real “creative” on your Hillary slams……is Alex Jones a fav of yours……what a joke!

    3. Insinnergy May 15, 2016

      Yeah sure… the fact that the Republican nominee has been found guilty in court of numerous actual crimes (and admitted it himself) is “high school gossip stuff”…

      But Clinton’s non-classified email stored in a remote server is “compromising national security”.

      I’m at a loss to find sufficient adjectives to properly describe your arrant stupidity.
      Alas… it appears the English language is insufficient.

    4. Independent1 May 16, 2016

      So Hillary should be booked for using a private server for emails huh?? Then so should Rice and Powell:

      Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice used private accounts for classified emails

      The state department watchdog found that both Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, America’s top diplomats under president George W Bush, were sent sensitive national security information to nongovernment email addresses.

      Senate minority leader Harry Reid of Nevada called the findings “a watershed moment”, adding: “If we’re to believe Republicans, we would have to criminally charge Secretary Rice, Secretary Powell, the senior staff and everyone else who received these emails.”

      http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/feb/04/colin-powell-condoleezza-rice-private-email-accounts-classified-hillary-clinton

      Which in fact means, Bush, Cheney, Rove and virtually everyone in the Bush Administration should be charged BECAUSE THEY ALL USED PRIVATE SERVERS!! And there are still several million emails missing from the Bush White House using private servers:

      From CNN:

      White House: Millions of e-mails may be missing

      White House: ‘We screwed up’

      Perino’s disclosure about the White House e-mail comes a day after she admitted that the White House “screwed up” by not requiring e-mails from Republican Party and campaign accounts to be saved and was also trying to recover those e-mails.

      Perino said 22 aides in the political arm of the president’s office use party or campaign e-mail accounts, which were issued to separate official business from political work. Some of those accounts were used to discuss the December firings of eight federal prosecutors, a shake-up that has triggered a spreading controversy on Capitol Hill.

      “The biggest problem here is really that here is a White House that is deliberately violating an existing statute that requires them to preserve all records,” said Sloan. “And we have significant evidence now both from the RNC e-mail and the White House e-mail that are missing that the White House was using every means possible to avoid complying with the law.”

      http://www.cnn.com/2007/POLITICS/04/13/white.house.email/index.html

      1. AgLander May 16, 2016

        Rice and Powell did NOT use private, home brew servers, big difference. Learn the terms, learn the technology so you aren’t spreading misinformation in the future. (Unless you are deliberately doing it, in which case I would advise you to buzz off.)

        1. Jan123456 May 16, 2016

          Since when is “home brew” a technological term?

          If it is more than a pejorative term, please define it for me.

          1. AgLander May 16, 2016

            Jan, so you’re offended by me describing a server placed in a bathroom closet by the aptly pejorative description of “home brew”? Jan, I apologize for having offended you and hope this does not spiral into a difficult day for you and your delicately balanced system, Jan. Have a peaceful and stress free day, Jan…..serenity now, serenity now.

          2. Independent1 May 16, 2016

            What has that got to do with anything?? Hillary hired an outside computer security firm to set up and maintain the server. Absolutely no different than what the RNC had done with respect to maintaining their servers that Powell and Rice used.
            And isn’t it interesting that while Hillary was SOS that her computer was never hacked but the State Department’s computers were with millions of pieces of data stolen??

          3. AgLander May 16, 2016

            Guess what!!! Putin, the Chinese government and a host of unfriendly nation suspects all agree with you….they are also rolling on the floor laughing knowing that the more there are of you, the easier their task will be! Keep it up, dummy!

            Total BS!! Our governments computers are no safer than mine – I’m running as good security software as anything you’ll find on a government computer. And isn’t it interesting that time and time again emails come up missing on government computers when people are asking for them!! At one time 103 million emails were missing from the Bush White House!!!!!!

          5. AgLander May 16, 2016

            No, not at all offended.

            However, you are the one who told Independent1 to “learn the technology”. So, from a technological point of view, what does “home brew” mean….unless you are the pot calling the kettle black.

            Do you know that it wasn’t an Apache server running Lynux using a Checkpoint firewall?

          9. AgLander May 16, 2016

          12. Jan123456 May 16, 2016

            That still doesn’t define “home brew” from a technological standpoint.. Nice deflection though.

          13. Independent1 May 16, 2016

            Right! that he’s the typical pathological lying GOP lover.

            Don’t worry about needing to know more about me…..you need to be scrambling to prevent the FBI from finding out more about your sweet Hillary. But I think it’s a little too late for that!

          15. AgLander May 16, 2016

            Deflection is a perfect description of how you are trying to ignore the fact that a private server was used by the woman who has been correctly describes as the type that “lies, cheats and steals” in her quest to run a shadow government. But she got caught and now will pay the consequences. Who will be your back-up choice among other Democrats? It’s going to be tough…..the bench is thin.

          16. Jan123456 May 16, 2016

            Skippy, You are the one who FIRST accused someone of not understanding the technology, yet you still will not (actually probably cannot) define the term YOU used and you go off onto other topics.

            That, my friend, is deflection.

          17. Jan123456 May 16, 2016

            Yeah, that 200 FBI agent investigation was another right wing lie that was retracted. However, like most right wingers you only keep the wrong info in mind.

          18. AgLander May 16, 2016

            So you are saying that if it’s less than 200 it makes the investigation less serious?! You are beginning to sound like a drowning person grabbing at branches along the shore!

          19. Jan123456 May 16, 2016

            Yes, The Washington Post is the publication that “broke” the 200 agent story. Now when you read the article you will see this at the end.

            CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article incorrectly said that
            Clinton used two different email addresses, sometimes interchangeably,
            as secretary of state. She used only hdr22@clintonemail.com as secretary
            of state. Also, an earlier version of this article reported that 147
            FBI agents had been detailed to the investigation, according to a
            lawmaker briefed by FBI Director James B. Comey. Two U.S. law
            enforcement officials have since told The Washington Post that figure is
            too high. The FBI will not provide an exact figure, but the officials
            say the number of FBI personnel involved is fewer than 50.

          20. AgLander May 16, 2016

            So even if it’s 50…..you consider that a good sign? Think about what you just said. How comfortable would ANYONE be if they were told 50 FBI agents were on their case!

          21. Jan123456 May 16, 2016

            The correction did not specify the precise number. And the FBI won’t provide an exact figure. It could be 1, right? We don’t know. You just think you do.

          22. AgLander May 16, 2016

            You again deflect…..you do a lot of it. Do you know who the FBI is? Do you know the FBI does not mess around? Do you know the FBI only investigates when there is a situation of a serious crime having been committed? The FBI does not do “security reviews”…..the FBI does, however, investigate breeches in national security and attempts to hide the evidence. Are you proud of your presumptive candidate having this huge criminal proceeding hanging over her head?

          23. Jan123456 May 16, 2016

            So, you still cannot support your claim of “home brew”.

            Once you do that…then we’ll discuss the FBI in greater detail.

          24. dpaano May 23, 2016

            Actually, there are only 12 agents involved in the “investigation,” but I guess you just don’t keep up with the lies you’ve been told.

          25. AgLander May 23, 2016

            Get over yourself! Pick a number, any number, are you telling me that the FBI agents involved whether it’s 12, 50, 100 or 200 are studying the possibility of presenting crooked Hillary with a commendation award?! Get it through your pointy head….this is a CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION!! The FBI doesn’t do inquiries, they don’t mess around on fishing trips…….they only get involved when there is a strong indication that a crime has been committed. Makes you proud of your Democrat party and its presumptive candidate ,eh?!

          26. ivory69690@yahoo.com May 24, 2016

            aginglard why don’t you share your thoughts with the GOP gang of idiots that admitted to pretty much doing anything to make Hillary look bad no matter how much time and money thy waste the people of the country ? if not the BIG B/S of BEN.

      So far, no criminal cases filed against her.

        What’s your take on the facts concerning Hillary’s actual record: rape case she joked about when an attorney; Bill & Lewinsky lies; almost 50 people who worked closely with them over the years being murdered or suicided in bizar ways when it was time to testify; Whitewater; Benghazi order to stand down then blame a mock Mohammed video; her changing stance on homosexual marriage; the list is too long to continue, but you get my drift since you’re such a highly educated, aware, astute person. Do you prefer & support Mrs. Clinton for our President? Do you think we can trust her integrity & honesty?

    THE DEPRAVITY OF NARCISSISM, MATERIALISM, AND SIMILAR DEFECTS—Part 2

    The problems posed by an extremist political agenda, by conservative positions taken by ‘conservative’ religious factions within the major Religions of the world, the fear of new ideas and of the need for changes that redound to the benefit of all rather than a privileged “race”, class, ethnicity, the disapproval of a Religion other than that of the status quo, are all symptoms of an underlying cancer as a result of a “vacuum”—a “vacuum” that is the result of a drying up of spiritual values AS DEFINED IN ALL THE REVEALED RELIGIONS.

    If interpreted properly and reflected on w/o the help of clergy, or anyone else, but as a result of independent investigation and translated in daily actions, then there is stability in the individual and in society.

    Unfortunately, too many of us aren’t motivated to take the time to read our Books, can’t discern the inner meanings and instead take a literalist approach, and are unconcerned with having that understanding reflected in our words and deeds—the latter(deeds) being most important.

    Trump, and to a large extent the Conservative Party, are instead more focused on process, on reaping material gain, posturing, narcissism, uttering insults, defaming others, maintaining a hostile atmosphere, and using the age-old strategy of “Divide and Conquer” which has proved successful for all bullies, groups, and Empires that sought to assert their dominance over others.

    Secular laws can be changed, processes improved, wealth equitably shared under duress, and healthcare for all grudgingly offered. But if these things are done as an expedient quick-fix frame of mind, w/o allowing for motivation by a Higher Source, then only meager results will be the outcome. Abdu’l Baha(a Central Figure of The Baha’i Faith) once talked about different forms of unity—he cited “limited unities”(e.g., of race, skin color, language, nationality) as capable of offering “limited” results only, whereas “Real Unity” results in unlimited possibilities.
    The nature of this “Real Unity” is exhaustively covered in the Writings of Baha’u’llah, Abdu’l Baha, Shoghi Effendi, and the letters and responses of the Universal House of Justice whose seat is on Mt. Carmel in Haifa, Israel). The other major Religions(Islam, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity, Buddhism, and Hinduism) speak of the characteristics of “Real Unity” as well, in the context of what was appropriate for the era each of Them appeared.

    The GOP in particular has become increasingly interested in devising limited plans, and offering rhetoric that yield limited results. Their favorite mantras are the so-called “Fiscal Responsibility”(a useful strategy but doesn’t even begin to touch on the real ailment); national security vis-a-vis protecting “us” from “them”; about maintaining benefits for a favored few and for those who fit the “mold” of the “majority” group(translation—those who look “sufficiently ‘European’).

    There are certain “honored people of color” who are tolerated and allowed to sit at the GOP/TRUMP TABLE. Such “honored” and select few are merely “tokens” who are quite suitable for window dressing—pretty much what are generally referred to as “lackeys”, and worse.

    Specific quotes from letters, certain Tablets, and other Sources that may be helpful will be forth-coming.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I don’t usually put this much effort into an incorrect comment but I am really, really tired of people making false statement.

    It would be nice to have a simple discussion on articles without comments trying to high-jack for their on purposes.

    I earlier recommended ignoring P.S.L.’s suggestion to go to whowhatwhy.com to see the video referenced in above article because I could not find a link to the video and the site was simply an anti-Hillary site. I didn’t call PSL a troll but……

    I don’t know if posting just a response to PSL, other readers can see my
    response so I am posting it both ways. You may find this information
    helful or interesting, especially if you are not interested in
    anti-Hillary BS.

    PSL has challenged my assessment, but rather
    than providing the whowhatwhy.com link to the video, he refers us to the
    youtube link which the article says has charges a fee to view.

    PSL also claimes this site doesn’t like like an anti-Hillary site.

    Responding
    to PSL, not only is the website anti-Hillary, it is pro-Bernie, and
    therefore, would also be anti-Trump, ergo, it shows anti-Trump
    opinions, etc.

    PSL also accused me of trying to “discourage us from
    seeking information and want us to be brainless followers who blindly follow.”

    Talk about brainless!! Any one who can read clearly
    sees
    the site is anti-Hillary. Below are articles titles on the site pages
    that are clearly anti-Hillary and contain false information.

    “How
    NY Times Hid Hillary Hawkishness – “The Times, Baker says,
    deliberately waited until it was too late to harm her presidential
    campaign, before revealing how much of a hawk she actually has been.”

    “How Moral Differences Between Sanders and Clinton Were Obscured” –
    “there’s no question in my mind that the Times failed to really focus on
    fundamental moral and ethical differences between the candidates, and
    thereby did real damage to Sanders.”

    “Secret Email Leaked from Hillary’s Server: The Real Story of Bush, Blair and Big Oil’s Iraq Agenda”

    This article does not even contain the words “Hillary” or
    “Clinton,” probably because the connection to Clinton is nonexistent.
    It contains a link to a British publication that attempts to implicate
    Clinton in the Bush-Blair discussions pre-Iraq War, an makes derogatory
    statement on Clinton but no linkage between the “secret email” and
    Clinton.

    “Smoking gun emails reveal Blair’s ‘deal in blood’
    with George Bush over Iraq war was forged a YEAR before the invasion had
    even started”

    This article claims a court “forced” Clinton to
    reveal her email. That is false. The court forced the STATE DPT to
    produce Clinton’s email in response to a FOIA.

    The document described as “secret email” is actually a memo prepared by Colin Powell.

    The memo could not have been on Clinton’s server because it is marked
    “SECRET” and contains the word “CLASSIFIED.” Clinton has denied
    sending/receiving any classified information on her server. No proof
    has been found in the DOJ/FBI/State Dpt investigations that any email on
    Hillary’s server was marked as classified.

    “What Both Hillary and the GOP Are Covering Up About Libya – It Was Never About Security or Human Rights ”

    I would have to spend a lot of time researching to verify – or
    refute – the claims about Clinton in this article. But whether true or
    false, it proves my point that this website is
    anti-Clinton.

    I am not bothering to read these articles, but clearly by the titles they are anti-Clinton.

    “Did Hillary Clinton Get an Assist from Mitch McConnell?”

    “Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush are Running on the Same Ticket”

    “Lindsey Graham thinks Kim Jong-un is easier to talk to than Hillary Clinton.”

    “Another Secret Revealed from Camp Hillary Clinton – Progressives are skeptical of a Wall Street-backed war hawk
    running for the Democratic nomination? “

    One of these days, America will wake up to the reality that Trump is a borderline personality, dangerous, and obviously not Presidential material.

      Maybe, but unlike you Trump doesnt believe in Socialism or Communism. And I dont either.

      1. atc333 June 2, 2016

        Why don’t you learn the definitions of “Socialism” and “Communism” before you start throwing those terms about much less before you start attempting to claim what others “believe in”.

        As it is, people are beginning to understand what Trump really is: a Liar, a Con man, Mob connected, a bully, a Fraud, and very very dangerous in a position of power.

          I know the terms very well, thank you. What I didnt know was the term “progressive.” I had no idea what that meant and let it go for a long time. Then by accident I read that the Communist Party USA (cpusa.org) told followers to use the term “progressive” so that outsiders wouldnt get uppity. Sure enough, their website said that when I looked. Not only that, if you research the term progressive you’ll learn it was applied to communists each time there was an uprising, such as in the 1930s. Their aim that time was to amplify existing chaos out of which they would grab power. It didnt work then but it has since, namely right now. Since I am a JFK democrat and no parallels can be drawn between JFK and new so-called democrats like bernie and hillary, I will assume the socialist/communist cause never died. Furthermore, marxist-engles revolutionary materials in all times refer to the same phrases that bernie himself uses. On top of that, CPUSA sometimes has on their website words to the effect that “its working, stay the course! we can win this!” Who are they referring to if not hillary-obama-bernie supporters? But these are not accusations but to show how things have shifted to the left in America and Im trying to hang on to what we had before Obama began the fundamental change. JFK was the last democrat and Reagan was the last republican and I respect them both. Hillary and trump are respectively neither but if a vote for trump slows the progressive movement then thats how I vote. What I want for america is respect for the constitution as our foundational roadmap, respect for god, respect for the flag, the Pledge to remain in classrooms, in god we trust still on the currency, and respect for the basic economic system which is capitalism. Go see two important videos, one is a speech by reagan called “reagan warned us about obama” and the other is an amazing interview by the three networks with JFK after his first year in office. Both on youtube. In both, the clear and concise party ideals can be seen. Thats what I want–democrats to live to their ideals and republicans to live to theirs so that people can see a clear choice. I call fouls on all the candidates now, to me they are frauds, jokers, opportunists and liars who do NOT represent or even respect their parties ideals. This shift we are in is what I rail against, if I can help it we wont have it. But as it is right now, youd think my views are conservative and you may not even count JFK as a democrat. Thats how far things have shifted. And yes, to me, communism is still a bad word. A really bad word.

          Ok, I found this way after it happened & decided to jump in with my 2 cents. without lengthy definitions of “socialism” & “communism”, we can agree on this: socialism occurs in a nation when the people willingly agree to accepting the “change” from sovereignty but communism takes over by force via violence. We can learn from history & current reality that neither system of government works out as initially claimed.

      What a terrible lie that is! Where in Hell did you get that bit of misinformation?

    FBI says today they will blow the whistle on Hillary if the DOJ refuses to indict. Thats something, considering that all NM people says FBI goes with whoever is in the White House. So what will you say now, the FBIs actions are only sexist and certainly not the truth?

      Where did the FBI “say today” that they would blow the whistle on Hillary?

      Documentation please.

          Wow! Talk about reaching to prove your point! A Republican ex politico says the FBI is going to to something is proof to you? You are so sad. As Trump would say a loser!

          investmentwatchdog.com is known as a publisher of lies about anything that furthers their own political agenda.

          Red Flag is a far right propaganda site.
          In politics, a red flag is a symbol of socialism, communism, and left-wing politics; it has been associated with left-wing politics since the French Revolution (1789–99).
          You do know it is very easy to just make up stuff and post it online.
          Red Flag News is not a mainstream news source, and I would not trust the news it does broadcast.

      1. Janice Paulsen June 19, 2016

        By all means, please supply your sources for stories like this one. Otherwise we will consider them just more lies in a smear campaign.

    “What of it? Ernest Hemingway used a pen name, didn’t he?” Ah, yes. The writer known as “Ernest Hemingway” was once a baby named Ernest Hemingway.
