    Trump Apocolypse Watch- 1 horseman

    "Yesterday, Donald Trump had the most publicly insane and disturbing day that any major-party presidential candidate has had in quite some time, calling to ban entire nations of people from immigrating to the United States and insinuating that both huge swaths of Muslim American communities and the current president are complicit in jihadist terror attacks.

    Today, surprisingly, a number of members of said candidate's party—who have, with some exceptions, been cravenly capitulating to and enabling his disgraceful behavior for months—appeared to have suddenly developed a conscience, or at least a self-preserving sense that things have gone too far. From a Politico piece called "Trump's terror response has Republicans fretting anew"

    Right, and how many of the mass-shooters have been on a "terror watch list"?

    It should be fun to see the NRA switch cognitive gears on this one.
  7. Trump shows such courage!
    On Twitter assbot is running Trump-ites around in circles

    Since @Assbott is automated, the entire world sees its reply first, before anyone else’s. @Assbott tweets instantly. So, mere seconds after Trump tweeted a “Thank you to the LGBT community!” on Tuesday, a sea of his fans were trapped in a war of words they could not win with a lifeless clump of code in a computer.

    "'We have to have our Republicans either stick together or let me just do it by myself,' he said. 'I’ll do very well. I’m going to do very well. OK? I’m going to do very well. A lot of people thought I should do that anyway, but I’ll just do it very nicely by myself.'" Some Republicans may be tempted to let him try."

    Guccifer 2.0 DNC’s servers hacked by a lone hacker

    Worldwide known cyber security company CrowdStrike announced that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) servers had been hacked by “sophisticated” hacker groups.

    I’m very pleased the company appreciated my skills so highly. But in fact, it was easy, very easy.

    Guccifer may have been the first one who penetrated Hillary Clinton’s and other Democrats’ mail servers. But he certainly wasn’t the last. No wonder any other hacker could easily get access to the DNC’s servers.

    Shame on CrowdStrike: Do you think I’ve been in the DNC’s networks for almost a year and saved only 2 documents? Do you really believe it?

    Here are just a few docs from many thousands I extracted when hacking into DNC’s network.

    They mentioned a leaked database on Donald Trump. Did they mean this one?

    <snipped>

    Some hundred sheets! This’s a serious case, isn’t it?

    And it’s just a tiny part of all docs I downloaded from the Democrats networks.

    DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said no financial documents were compromised. Nonsense! Just look through the Democratic Party lists of donors!

    <snipped>

    They say there were no secret docs! Lies again! Here is a secret document from Hillary’s PC she worked with as the Secretary of State.

    <snipped>

    The main part of the papers, thousands of files and mails, I gave to Wikileaks. They will publish them soon.

    Trump campaign calls for $100K in donations by the end of the day | The Hill

    The Donald Trump campaign has sent its first "emergency" fundraising email to supporters Saturday, seeking to raise at least $100,000 by the end of the day.

    That request follows a multimillion dollar ad blitz launched by likely general election rival Hillary Clinton this week.

    "Right now we're facing an emergency goal of $100,000 to help get our ads on the air," the email said. "We need your contribution by 11:59 P.M. Tonight."

    "Crooked Hillary is about to invade your TV with ads attacking Mr. Trump. But we're preparing to fight back," it reads, adding that the campaign plans to attack Clinton over her role in Benghazi and the FBI probe into her use of a private email server while secretary of state.

    Clinton this week launched a multimillion dollar ad blitz in eight swing states, her first geared toward the general election.

    Meanwhile, Republican leaders have worried about Trump's fundraising operation as he mounts a general election campaign against Clinton's well-oiled machine.

    Several prominent GOP donors have said they would keep their wallets shut this cycle and not support the unconventional candidate.

    Donald Trump’s Habit of Lying About Charitable Donations Could Land Him in Legal Trouble

    By Eric Levitz, New York Magazine, June 20, 2016

    Quote:

    Everything Donald Trump does, he does for charity.

    His bait-and-switch scheme of a real-estate school? A large part of its proceeds went to those in need. Same with his terrible vodka company, his branded board game, and his campaign book, Crippled America. Or so the GOP nominee has claimed. In truth, there is no evidence that a man who self-describes as “greedy, greedy, greedy” decided to run most of his business ventures like nonprofits. And that could put him in violation of New York State regulations on deceptive business practices and charitable solicitations, Politico reports.

    “The profits of my book? I’m giving them away to a lot of different people, including the vets,” Trump told reporters at a press conference in November, after making similar claims on the stump in Iowa and over social media.

    Sales of the book provided Trump with more than $1 million in royalties, according to a personal financial disclosure filed with the FEC last month. But the Trump campaign has refused to disclose whether any of the book’s proceeds went to charity as promised.

    The GOP nominee is extremely good at taking credit for things. So it seems safe to assume that if he’d funneled his book profits into cancer research grants or mosquito nets we would have heard about it by now.

    Thus, some legal experts and politicians are pushing New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman to prosecute the Republican nominee for deceptive business practices

    “To the extent jurisdiction exists, it seems appropriate that the attorney general should examine whether Trump’s fraudulent schemes extend to his book promotion activity,” Democratic congressman Hakeem Jeffries told Politico.

    The outlet reports that Schneiderman’s office is aware of the allegations but has yet to decide whether to launch an investigation into the matter. Trump’s campaign has already been dogged by ongoing lawsuits against his “university” and his racist attacks on the federal judge overseeing them.

    Trump’s habit of bragging about charitable gifts that a better version of himself made in some alternate universe has been exposed several times in the course of his campaign. Early in his candidacy, Trump boasted about giving $102 million to charity in just the last five years. But when the Washington Post examined the candidate’s 96-page list of contributions, they couldn’t find a single cash gift delivered from Trump’s own pocket. Rather, the mogul’s largesse consisted of:

    1. Donating rounds of golf at his courses, a gift bestowed on such needy recipients as Trump’s clients, business partners, and Serena Williams.

    2. Conservation agreements in which Trump promised not to develop pieces of land on properties he owned in exchange for federal tax write-offs. According to the Associated Press, city-planning documents establish that, in at least one such case, Trump had no intention of developing the land in question. Thus, his “gift” was merely deciding to pursue a possible tax break for himself.

    3. Funneling other people’s actual cash donations through his personal foundation.

    In May, the Post discovered that Trump still hadn’t made the $1 million gift he had promised veterans groups at a January fundraiser. After a bout of negative press, Trump wrote the checks and then shamed the media for robbing him of the chance to give anonymously.

    Lewandowski Is Out as Trump’s Campaign Flails Like a Desperate Startup | WIRED

    Silicon Valley’s inventions have benefited Donald Trump more than any candidate ever. But if the Trump campaign were a startup in the land of Facebook and Twitter, well, it’s unlikely venture capitalists would be looking to invest. The presumptive Republican nominee’s New York-based operation looks like a once high-flying startup now on its way down — witness this morning’s latest upheaval, the ousting of Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. The turmoil, the drama, the desperate search for money: the Trump campaign is looking like so many startups that have caught fire before flaming out.

    Documents Leaked From Hacked DNC Server Shine Light On Clinton Foundation

    Excerpt:

    One of the documents served as a rebuttal sheet for Clinton’s allies. It detailed how they should respond when criticism of the Clinton Foundation came up. While Clinton served as secretary of state, she received donations from foreign countries that funded the Clinton Foundation and its various philanthropic causes.

    One memo was titled “2016 Democrats Positions Cheat Sheet.” It listed the positions of all of the possible Democratic nominees — Lincoln Chaffee, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Martin O’Malley, Bernie Sanders, and Clinton — and where they stood on policy and current issues.

    Other documents included “Attacks on Clinton Family Members” and “How Much Of Mrs. Clinton’s Travel Was Funded By The Saudis?”

    Criticisms of Bill Clinton’s previous sexual relationships are discussed, and when he was called a “sexual predator” by past love affairs. Other attacks were aimed at Chelsey Clinton and her refusal to be completely honest about where the Clinton Foundation receives its money.

    In one memo, it breaks down how much money was spent on travel in private jets. It lists the corporations who contributed to her luxury flying and details how much each trip cost.

    Russian hacker leaks over 260 internal Democratic Party files on Hillary Clinton

    Upon inspection, the documents do indeed cover a wide range of topics. They include so-called "cheat sheets" on policies going back years, official positions on everything from Boko Haram to Assad, Snowden, taxes and, of course, the leak of emails from Clinton's home server.

    Last week, a mysterious hacker using the handle “Guccifer 2.0” emerged to claim responsibility for the data breach at the Democratic National Committee, which democrats and several cybersecurity firms attributed to two groups of Russian hackers, likely working for Vladimir Putin’s government.

    Now, the hacker is keeping his threat to leak more documents stolen from the DNC’s servers, and, for the first time, has agreed to answer questions.

    Donald Trump’s Self-Funding Includes Payments to Family and His Companies

    Donald J. Trump regularly boasts that he is self-funding his presidential bid, but new campaign finance filings show that he is also shifting plenty of money back to himself in the process.

    According to documents submitted to the Federal Election Commission, Mr. Trump, whose campaign has just $1.3 million cash on hand, paid at least $1.1 million to his businesses and family members in May for expenses associated with events and travel costs. The total represents nearly a fifth of the $6 million that his campaign spent in the month.

    The spending raised eyebrows among campaign finance experts and some of Mr. Trump’s critics who have questioned whether the presumptive Republican nominee, who points to his business acumen as a case for his candidacy, is trying to do what he has suggested he would in 2000 when he mulled making an independent run: “It’s very possible that I could be the first presidential candidate to run and make money on it.”

    This Shirtless Mountain Dew Motherfucker Is the Living Embodiment of Trump-Inspired White Supremacy

    You’re looking at the face of resurgent mainstream white hatred in the United States — it listens to Slipknot, daydreams about appearing on an MMA-based reality competition show, smells like cocktail made of Mountain Dew, cough syrup, and creatine, and thinks anyone who appears to be Mexican should “BUILD THAT FUCKIN’ WALL... FOR ME!”

    It was not that long ago that walking down the street with your shirt off screaming “GO FUCKIN’ COOK MY BURRITO BITCH” at suspected Mexican-Americans was frowned upon, but today it’s just part of the electoral discourse, thanks in large part to the ascendance of Donald Trump and his popularity among the “X-Games Klan Sympathizer” cohort. The above video was recorded last week and sent to us by photographer Eric Rosenwald, who attended a Trump rally in Phoenix, AZ.

    You can read all summaries in the world of Trump’s various policy stances, such as they are — building a wall, trade isolationism, immigration bans — but none of it will be as illuminating as a shirtless white guy turning red with fury, arteries bulging, screaming the word “TRUMP” over and over again into the faces of American Latinos in a state of apoplexy.

    Update: Former Gawker editorial assistant Max Read pointed out that the gentleman in the video above has a tattoo of the number 43, commonly received by members of the white supremacist hate group Supreme White Alliance.
