Trump Companies Allegedly Violated Judge’s Order, Destroyed THOUSANDS Of Emails

Throughout the 2016 race for the White House, Donald Trump has attempted to use the issue of Hillary Clinton’s private email server while Secretary of State as a cudgel to claim that she cannot be trusted and may have violated the law, even though Clinton has never been charged with anything.

But now we have a new report from Kurt Eichenwald of Newsweek which alleges Trump and his company, in direct violation of a court order, destroyed thousands of emails too. Talk about hypocrisy!

Court filings, judicial orders, and affidavits prove that employees working directly for Trump destroyed or hid thousands of emails, digital records, and other documentation that had been demanded as part of official proceedings.

Because the records were deleted or destroyed, Eichenwald reports, contractors, former business partners, and engaged in lawsuits with Trump were forced to “spend huge sums of money in legal fees as they struggled—sometimes in vain—to obtain records.”

The Newsweek article also alleges that Trump has leaked misleading information to reporters about his lawsuits, threatened libel lawsuits against those who criticize him, and even lied during sworn statements, which could constitute perjury:

“He promised to turn over his tax returns and his health records — just as he promised to comply with document discovery requirements in so many lawsuits — then reneged. As a result, he has left a sparse evidentiary trail that can be used to assess his wealth, his qualifications for the presidency or even his fitness.”

It should be clear to anyone who cares to scratch the surface that Donald Trump is a dirty rotten scoundrel, con man, and grifter from the top of that vermin he wears atop his head to the bottom of his fancy Italian shoes. He is totally unfit to be President of the United States.

Trump Campaign Manager Scoffs At Pending Child Rape Case Against Candidate (VIDEO)

During an appearance on CNBC Monday morning, Trump campaign manager made it sound as if the pending rape case against the GOP nominee was no big deal and then attempted to try and change the focus back to news from the FBI about emails found on a computer belonging to Anthony Weiner.

Yeah, because emails are always more important than charges of raping a 13-year-old girl. WTF?!

Conway began her remarks by attempting to blame Clinton for emails that may well have nothing to do with the Democratic nominee:

“Just ask Huma what’s on there, just ask Anthony Weiner what’s on there. They are now trying to politicize the FBI.”

Countering what Conway had just said, host Reed Sorkin reminded the campaign manager that Trump had threatened to put Clinton in jail if he’s elected. To that, Conway replied:

“And where are we now? She is going to be in her second FBI investigation. One FBI investigation, let alone two, do we think this is normal? I think people have been asking the right questions about the wrong candidate. Who’s really unqualified? Who’s unfit to be president? Who has shown what they would do with their national security information? Who has shown it’s always about her and her petty peevish political self?”

Sorkin then reminded Conway that Trump faces his own legal problems if elected as he is facing a December hearing in a case where a woman has accused Trump of raping her when she was 13:

“My understanding is that no matter who wins, we’re going to be dealing with the email issue after this if she’s the president. If Donald Trump is the president, he’s got the child rape case that’s going to happen that was just given a date.”

Conway:

“Oh, come on. That you would analogize the two. Give me a break. Next you are going to ask me where his taxes are.”

The CNBC host told Conway:

“That’s a whole separate issue, but we’re going to have legal cases for each candidate.”

Proving just how inept and corrupt she is–much like the candidate she works for–Conway then remarked:

“That’s such a ridiculous conflation. To just throw the rape word in there when we’ve got 650,000 emails based on an active investigation of Huma Abedin’s pedophilia husband because he’s sexting pictures of himself to some 15-year-old girl in North Carolina, I think that’s just ridiculous.”

Actually, Ms. Conway, what’s ridiculous is that you just attempted to equate sexting with child rape. That’s an outrage, and it tells every American just how callous you and Donald Trump are.

Despite Gaining Some In The National Polls, The Electoral Math Remains Dismal For Trump

Allow me to be the voice of reason and sanity amidst a storm of doubt, recrimination, and uncertainty. Yes, Donald Trump has narrowed the margin since the news from FBI Director James Comey on Friday that information “pertinent” to the matter of Hillary Clinton’s email server had been found on a device belonging to disgraced Congressman and sexting freak Anthony Weiner, but it’s time to look beyond the superficial statistics and dive a bit deeper into the real math which wins Presidential elections.

The ABC News/Washington Post national tracking poll shows Trump within 1 point of Hillary Clinton in a four-way race that includes Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein. Last week, that same poll had Clinton up nationally by 12 points. Oh my gosh! She lost 11 points in a single week? No. That’s nearly impossible to have happened, which means there is a better than 99 percent chance it hasn’t.

Also, one does not win a Presidential election on the national level. Such races are won on a state-by-state basis and then electoral votes are awarded to whatever candidate wins a particular state. In other words, the race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is 50 individual state races which will determine who the next occupant of the Oval Office will be.

So, if we look at the aggregate polling data–i.e. data from many polls–we see that based on that information the HuffPost Pollster model shows Clinton leading by 7 points in a two-way race and 6 points when third party candidates are included.

OK, you can breathe now.

Also, despite the recent fluctuations in national polls, there remains virtually no discernible path by which Trump can get the 270 electoral votes needed to win the election. Now this isn’t to say that we can all just sit back and expect others to do our voting for us. All of us–liberals, progressives, moderates, the rational and sane who do not want to give a psychopath nuclear weapons–have to get out and vote for Clinton if we value our future and those of our families.

Thanks once again to the good folks at the Huffington Post, we can clearly see that Hillary Clinton now has a 98 percent chance of being the next President of the United States.

Whew! Feeling much better now.

Are you kidding me?! Get up off your duff and go vote! This is no time for complacency! The fate of this country and the entire world is at stake.

So don’t fret, but DO VOTE!

Trump Supporter Screams At Press, Uses Anti-Semitic Slurs, Brands Them ‘The Enemy’ (VIDEO)

Even though the Trump campaign tries desperately to deny that many of their supporters are racist jackasses, the actions of some acolytes who support the GOP nominee continue to prove otherwise.

Take for example a man at a Trump campaign rally held in Phoenix on Saturday. This enraged man began taunting members of the media with chants of “Jew S. A.” in place of USA. This same rabid moron also accused members of the press who were simply doing their jobs of being “the enemy” and “working for the devil.”

For his part, Trump riled up his rally filled with deplorables by telling them:

“When the outcome is fixed, when the system is rigged, people lose hope. They stop dreaming. They stop trying. Hillary Clinton’s corruption is corrosive to the soul of our nation and it must be stopped.”

What is both maddening and simultaneously pathetic is that many of these enraged Trump voters are losers who need someone to blame their own inadequacies on. They are often poorly educated and have low-paying jobs. But then again, if you fail to educate yourself or prepare for the job market by learning a trade or getting a degree, that is at least in part your own fault. But to try and direct your anger at others–be they African-Americans, Hispanics, or women–only proves your own impotence. Rather than facing their failures and trying to better themselves, these narcissistic simpletons choose to hate those who set goals and accomplish them.

The type of Trump supporter who shouted at members of the media in Phoenix cannot face one simple fact: He or she has a made a mess of their life and the pain is too much to take. Therefore they lash out at others with hatred and bile. They cannot face one simple fact: Their time has passed and the future has caught up with them, just as it will catch up with Donald Trump on November 8.

Bill Maher: That ‘Lesser Of Two Evils’ Election Argument Is ‘BULLSH*T!’ (VIDEO)

Since it first became clear that this year’s nominees for their respective parties would be Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, there’s been some whining among voters that they are being forced to choose between the “lesser of two evils.” And for those people, Real Time host Bill Maher has a very simple but direct message:

“Grow the fu*k up!”

On his show last night, Maher directly confronted the “less of two evils” griping by explaining what’s at stake in this election:

“Republicans have one path to this election and it’s ‘false equivalency.’ They can’t deny Trump is horrible – it’s on tape. So they want voters to believe that Hillary is just as bad. And in pursuit of that goal they have a very powerful ally — lazy people.

“People who like to say, ‘they’re all bad.’ Because when you say that, you don’t have to do any homework. Say, ‘they’re all the same,’ and you can sound justifiably jaded by the entire process when, really, you just don’t know anything.”

Finally, Maher directed his comments at millennial voters who he said are wrongly obsessed with “bullshit” trivia:

“I am so tired of hearing that Hillary doesn’t seem genuine. Grow the fuck up.”

Exactly! Hillary isn’t “genuine?” So would you rather have a man who is a genuine serial sexual assaulter of women and a threat to the national and economic security of the United States? Those of us who care about what happens in the future because we love our children need to put aside our petty picking at a woman who has devoted her life to helping others and elect her as President. If we fail to do so, future generations will never forgive us.
