    Petition to send Donald Trump into Space and Leave Him There |

    To NASA:

    We are all tired of hearing about what outrageous thing that Donald Trump has said, done, wants to do, believes, etc. My solution to this is to send him into space and leave him there. If this petition gets enough signatures I will attach a link to where you can donate to make this happen. It wont be cheap, but it will be worthwhile.

    Oi! It's not a good idea it leave useless crap in orbit, and some orbits, like synchronous, are valuable real estate.

    Perhaps a dumping obit that will scatter his ashes over Russia or something?

    Donald Trump's first TV ad shows migrants 'at the southern border,' but they're actually in Morocco | PolitiFact

    In a new television ad -- his campaign’s first -- Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump shows footage of dozens of people swarming over a border fence. But the footage isn’t as it seems.

    About halfway through the ad, a narrator says of Trump, "He'll stop illegal immigration by building a wall on our southern border that Mexico will pay for." Video footage shows dozens of people streaming across the border, as if they were ants fleeing an anthill.

    The clear suggestion is that the footage is of the "southern border" between the United States and Mexico. But it’s not -- it’s 5,000 miles away, in a small Spanish enclave on the mainland of Morocco.

    PolitiFact was able to trace the footage back to the Italian television network RepubblicaTV. On May 3, 2014, the network posted footage of Moroccans crossing the border into Melilla, one of two enclaves on the Moroccan coast that are held by Spain. Migrants who cross the border there are essentially entering territory held by a European Union nation, even though they are still on the African continent. (It can also be seen posted by a YouTube user here.)

    The RepubblicaTV video is time-stamped May 1, 2014. According to the description posted by the network (and using Google Translate) the video was released by the Interior Ministry in Madrid, showing an "onslaught of hundreds of migrants to the wall that separates the Spanish enclave of Melilla from Morocco. About 800 tried to cross the border on May 1st. Those who failed to escape the control of the Civil Guard were hanging on the barriers for six hours before being rejected."

    The 2014 RepubblicaTV video resurfaced a year later, in a July 2015 YouTube post titled, "1,000s of immigrants try to cross the border at once." It makes no reference to the location.

    By the time the footage made it into Trump’s ad, both RepubblicaTV’s logo and the 2014 time stamp were no longer visible.

    Regardless of Trump’s imagery, the Pew Research Center noted last month that "for the first time since the 1940s, more immigrants from Mexico are leaving the U.S. than coming into the country. The shift is due to several reasons, including slow economic recovery after the Great Recession that may have made the U.S. less attractive, as well as stricter enforcement of U.S. immigration laws, particularly at the border."

    Weasel Zippers: According to IRS Filings, The Only 9/11 Charity Donald J. Trump Has Ever Given Money To Is A Scientology One

    * * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

    Via Smoking Gun:

    Since 2001, the Trump foundation’s tax returns contain a single donation that is identifiable with a 9/11 charity. In 2006, Trump gave $1000 to a controversial Scientology program that administered treatment to firemen who inhaled toxins while working on the World Trade Center pile. The New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Fund, co-founded by actor Tom Cruise, relied on a “Purification Rundown” invented by L. Ron Hubbard, the crackpot founder of Scientology.

    In recent campaign interviews, Trump–who has long delighted in viciously denigrating opponents and critics–has sought to portray himself as a candidate who cares.

    The Donald Trump Foundation has raised more today than Trump gave to it for five years

    By Philip Bump, The Washington Post, January 28, 2016

    If you're interested in contributing to the ad hoc fundraiser for veterans that Donald Trump cobbled together this week to air against the Fox News debate he's skipping, you can head over to (The site was also cobbled together this week; the domain name was purchased Thursday.) Your donation, should you add to the "over $130,000 raised today" that the site trumpets as of writing, will go to something called the Donald J Trump Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that has been around since 1988.

    A possible reason that it is called the "Donald J Trump Foundation" and not the "Donald Trump for Vets Foundation," beyond the political expediency that the latter offers, is that the Donald J Trump Foundation hasn't given a lot to veterans or veterans groups. The Weekly Standard's John McCormack detailed that giving, contrasting the $57,000 the Trump Foundation gave veterans groups from 2009 to 2013 with the $100,000 it gave to the William J. Clinton Foundation in 2009 alone.

    It's worth noting, too, that from 2001 to 2013 — the period for which federal reporting forms are available — the largest gifts to the foundation didn't come from Trump. Over that period, he himself gave about $2.8 million, none of it after 2008. The biggest donor? The WWE, as in World Wrestling Entertainment.

    The foundation also got large gifts from NBC, "Celebrity Fight Night" and Comedy Central, no doubt linked to its 2011 roast of the real estate titan.

    While raising money into the Donald J. Trump Foundation to give to veterans may seem a bit odd, there's nothing unseemly about it. It allows Trump and his team to figure out where to direct the money without having to cobble something together over the short term. Giving money to the United Way, for example, means giving to other nonprofits down the line.

    But it also means that in the less than 24 hours that the site has been live, Donald Trump for Vets has provided more for the Donald J. Trump Foundation than Trump himself did from 2009 to 2013. Assuming that the "over $130,000 raised" is accurate. Since we've been watching, the number hasn't changed.

    Queens veterans ask Donald Trump for donation, receive bumper sticker one year later | New York Daily News


    Members of one Queens veterans organization said they reached out to the borough’s native son last year before he made a bid for the White House.

    But they didn’t receive a response until last week when Veterans-in-Command got a letter from Trump’s campaign.

    “Unfortunately we are unable to make donations from the campaign,” read the handwritten note signed “Team Trump.”

    “Mr. Trump is very passionate about giving veterans the best life possible!” added the note, which arrived with Trump campaign bumper stickers.

    Since then, the group has been receiving emails from the campaign looking for support.

    We’re No. 16! Why Donald Trump’s boorish American exceptionalism is so wrong

    Here's how we need to make America great again. In most every metric that counts, we are slipping against the world

    Phil Torres


    As a resident of white suburban America, I grew up believing that, as Fox News host Sean Hannity once so eloquently put it, “The U.S. is the greatest, best country God has ever given man on the face of the earth.” This article of faith in the superiority of the U.S. was instilled deep within my brain as a child, right next to the belief that Jesus was born of a virgin and then visited by three Wise Men. But as I began to travel the world a few years ago — a globetrotting adventure that took me through Europe and Canada and inspired me to start a journal of international rankings of countries according to various metrics — it became increasingly clear that American exceptionalism is a baseless mythology of tribalistic self-aggrandizement perpetuated by people who (if I may generalize a bit) can’t locate Denmark on a map.

    As it happens, the champions of this unique brand of nationalism are largely concentrated on the political right, where one also finds the attitude of anti-intellectualism in toxic doses. I don’t think this is a coincidence. The fact is that when one looks at infrastructure, life expectancy, family paid leave, health care, social mobility, income inequality, political corruption, government efficiency, economic stability, childhood poverty, student debt, water quality, education, prosperity, happiness and even Internet speed, one finds the U.S. absent from the top 10 “best countries” in every single instance. While the U.S. continues to have the largest economy in the world and by far the biggest military budget, in most categories relating to prosperity, security, happiness and well-being, the great American empire falls somewhere between the developed and the developing world.

    Photos of Trump's 'record crowd' that supposedly broke arena record set by ZZ Top 42 years ago show the Arkansas venue was actually half EMPTY
    • Trump spoke at the Arkansas State Fairgrounds in Little Rock before a half-empty livestock arena whose published capacity is 10,195
    • Claimed the fire marshal had counted the crowd and decided it broke a 42-year-old record
    • Photos tell a different story, showing large empty areas and unused sections of seating
    • The man Trump identified as the fire marshal was actually the state fair's general manager
    • Trump tweeted a claim that 12,000 people were there in all, while the real number was likely half that many

    For your own sake, for the sake of good Americans everywhere, and for the sake of your country, Please prove the meme wrong! Don't you fucking dare let that fucking asshole Trump get anywhere near the Whitehouse!

    I can't believe that I'm actually saying this, but if all of you love Bernie Sanders so fucking much, when the time comes, get off your ass's and VOTE for him. Otherwise the alternatives you'll all be left with ... "She's a friend of ours" and "say hello to our little criminal friend" Hillary. Even worse .. The above FUCKWIT!

    Americans .. Don't let us down.

    IRS Comes For Donald Trump Because Of How Much He Loves Jesus | Wonkette


    In an exciting plot twist, to which we give a very enthusiastic three thumbs up, Republicans want to get a look at Donald Trump’s tax returns. And Mitt Romney — MITT ROMNEY!!! — started it! And not just the picture Trump tweeted of himself this week, supposedly signing his tax return next to a big tower of paper.

    But Trump can’t release his tax returns and show us whether he really is a TEN BILLIONAIRE or whether there might be, as Mitt Romney (MITT ROMNEY!!!) suggested, a “bombshell” in that big stack. Because, as he explained during the debate and then the post-debate spinterview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, he’s being very unfairly audited by the IRS now, which doesn’t actually prevent him from releasing his tax returns, but he’s got no better answer, so sure, let’s go with that:

    TRUMP: The one problem I have is that I’m always audited by the IRS. Which I think is very unfair. I don’t know, maybe because of religion, maybe because of something else, maybe because I’m doing this, although this is just recently —

    CUOMO: What do you mean, religion?

    TRUMP: Well, maybe because of the fact that I’m a strong Christian, and I feel strongly about it, and maybe because of bias.

    CUOMO: You think you get audited for being a strong Christian?

    TRUMP: Well, you see what’s happened. You have many religious groups that are complaining about that. They’ve been complaining about it for a long time.

    Um. Uh. No? Yeah, no. We understand Christians in America love to claim they are being persecuted — by atheists and Big Government and Big Gay and the guy driving the garbage truck — but that’s not a thing in real life. And it’s definitely not a thing for Donald Trump. Definitely.

    Plus, Trump goes on to say he’s been getting audited for 10 years, 12 years. Which is “very unfair,” he says, and he’s “always passed the audit.”

    But we only learned what a “strong Christian” Trump is in the last year, when all of a sudden Trump told us how much he loves the Bible, he only drinks wine at church with the little crackers, and his favorite Jesus quote is the story about the “two Corinthians.” Plus, the pope himself — the actual The Pope — said Trump is not a Christian because he is an insufferable hateful dickbag. So maybe the IRS is taking orders from the pope? That’s no crazier than Trump’s all-of-a-sudden and very convenient explanation for why the mean IRS would be interested in Mr. Ten Billionaire’s finances, for the last decade.

    Needless to say, we adore this new line of thought. Please, Donald Trump, tell us more about how you are being persecuted for loving the shit out of Jesus so hard. We look forward to more details on that, please and thank you, God, amen.
