    It's a well researched article about what Trump advisors ( Chris Chrisry and the Heritage Foundation) are planning.

    Everything is about the climate and the oil companies.

  6. "It is likely that many Republicans and conservatives — such as Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio — see it as a blot on the history of the modern GOP that the party nominated someone who launched a years-long racist campaign to delegitimize the first African American president in the explicit belief that it would appeal to the racist tendencies of many GOP primary voters. Those Republicans might even say so right now if asked. But Trump has compelled the RNC not merely to participate in helping him push lies designed to muddy the waters around his birther history, but also — and this is the really important part — to institutionally defend that history. Indeed, while many Republicans previously repudiated this history, the RNC is now helping Trump validate it."

    It is understandable when large groups of people share the same facts. But it is weird when large groups promote the same misinformation.

    Trump used $258,000 from his charity to settle legal problems | The Washington Post


    Donald Trump spent more than a quarter-million dollars from his charitable foundation to settle lawsuits that involved the billionaire’s for-profit businesses, according to interviews and a review of legal documents.

    Those cases, which together used $258,000 from Trump’s charity, were among four newly documented expenditures in which Trump may have violated laws against “self-dealing” — which prohibit nonprofit leaders from using charity money to benefit themselves or their businesses.

    375 top scientists wrote an open letter in response to Trump's stated plan to pull out of the Paris climate agreement.

    The Paris agreement is not going to be enough to stop runaway warming but it is a great start for the planet politically.

    The climate problem is the most important issue in front of us. It's like we're deciding to have a global nuclear war or not. Thus the difference between Clinton and Trump on this one issue is a good reason to vote for Clinton even though she kinda sucks.

    Once Clinton defeats Trump we can use the Bernie tribe and other groups to push for getting money out politics. Corporations care about short-term economic advantages and should not have so much influence upon national legislation.
  22. Trump campaign chair resigns after she says

    In the clip, Miller said there was no racism in America “until Obama got elected.”

    Miller also called the Black Lives Matter movement “a stupid waste of time” and said black voter turnout is relatively low because of “the way they’ve been raised.”

    If you’re black and you haven’t been successful in the last 50 years, it’s your own fault,” said Miller, who was chair of Trump’s campaign in Mahoning County.

    When a reporter pointed out that some people were going to be offended by her comments, Miller replied, “I don’t care, it’s the truth.”

    People wanting presidential candidates to have a science debate couldn't make that happen. But they did get Trump, Clinton, Johnson, and Stein to email answers to 20 science related questions. Clinton, Trump and Stein responses were published Sept 13. Johnson responses were received Sept 17.

    I thought this comment summed things up pretty well:

    Ohio Trump campaign chair Kathy Miller says there was 'no racism' before Obama | The Guardian

    Donald Trump’s campaign chair in a prominent Ohio county has claimed there was “no racism” during the 1960s and said black people who have not succeeded over the past half-century only have themselves to blame.

    Trump Campaign Chair Resigns After Racist Comments | The Young Turks

    Kathy Miller was the Ohio County Campaign Chair for Donald Trump, until she made some racist comments to a reporter. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

    "The chair of Donald Trump’s campaign in an Ohio county resigned on Thursday after claiming that racism against African-Americans didn’t exist before President Barack Obama.

    “My personal comments were inappropriate, and I apologize,” Mahoning County chair Kathy Miller said in a statement. “I am not a spokesperson for the campaign and was not speaking on its behalf. I have resigned as the volunteer campaign chair in Mahoning County and as an elector to the Electoral College to avoid any unnecessary distractions.”

    Miller’s resignation came hours after The Guardian published an interview in which she blamed low voter turnout among African-Americans on the way “they’re raised” and stressed that blacks have only themselves to blame if they haven’t been successful “in the last 50 years.”

    Misleading headline is misleading
    "Donald Trump has made this the most difficult election to assess since 1984. We have never before seen a candidate like Donald Trump, and Donald Trump may well break patterns of history that have held since 1860.

    We've never before seen a candidate who's spent his life enriching himself at the expense of others. He's the first candidate in our history to be a serial fabricator, making up things as he goes along. Even when he tells the truth, such as, "Barack Obama really was born in the U.S.," he adds two lines, that Hillary Clinton started the birther movement, and that he finished it, even though when Barack Obama put out his birth certificate, he didn't believe it. We've never had a candidate before who not just once, but twice in a thinly disguised way, has incited violence against an opponent. We've never had a candidate before who's invited a hostile foreign power to meddle in American elections. We've never had a candidate before who's threatened to start a war by blowing ships out of the water in the Persian Gulf if they come too close to us. We've never had a candidate before who has embraced as a role model a murderous, hostile foreign dictator. Given all of these exceptions that Donald Trump represents, he may well shatter patterns of history that have held for more than 150 years, lose this election even if the historical circumstances favor it."[/quote]

    No Fortune 100 CEOs Back Republican Donald Trump | Wall Street Journal


    No chief executive at the nation’s 100 largest companies had donated to Republican Donald Trump’s presidential campaign through August, a sharp reversal from 2012, when nearly a third of the CEOs of Fortune 100 companies supported GOP nominee Mitt Romney.

    During this year’s presidential primaries, 19 of the nation’s top CEOs gave to other Republican candidates, including former Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of campaign donations.

    Since then, most have stayed on the sidelines, with 89 of the 100 top CEOs not supporting either presidential nominee, and 11 backing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. A total of 66 CEOs sat out the 2012 campaign, according to the Journal’s calculation.

    "Based on briefings we have received, we have concluded that the Russian intelligence agencies are making a serious and concerted effort to influence the U.S. election,” they said. “At the least, this effort is intended to sow doubt about the security of our election and may well be intended to influence the outcomes of the election.” They added that “orders for the Russian intelligence agencies to conduct such actions could come only from very senior levels of the Russian government.”

    Donald Trump threatens to bring Gennifer Flowers to debate | CNN


    Donald Trump threatened Saturday to bring Gennifer Flowers, with whom Bill Clinton admitted to having a sexual relationship decades ago, to Monday's presidential debate.

    The taunt is a response to prominent Trump critic Mark Cuban's plans to sit in the front row of the debate at the invitation of Hillary Clinton's campaign. It's the Republican nominee's latest public reference to the 42nd president's infidelity, which he has occasionally cited in his campaign to criticize his Democratic challenger.

    "If dopey Mark Cuban of failed Benefactor fame wants to sit in the front row, perhaps I will put Jennifer Flowers right alongside of him!" Trump tweeted Saturday afternoon.

    He soon deleted the original message and tweeted again with the correct spelling of Flowers' first name.

    Cuban quickly shot back via Twitter, mocking Trump for allegedly referring to the two of them as the "Bobbsey Twins," a term referencing the long-running children's book series about wholesome siblings.

    "Donald. Remember when you told me on the phone we were "Bobbsie Twins" and I laughed? #truestory," wrote Cuban.

    Gennifer Flowers says she will attend debate as Donald Trump’s guest | The Washington Post


    Gennifer Flowers, who revealed a sexual relationship with Bill Clinton in the 1990s, is saying she will attend Monday night's debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as Trump's guest.

    Flowers's assistant confirmed the decision to BuzzFeed's Andrew Kaczynski Saturday afternoon, and Flowers herself told the New York Times in a text message, "Yes, I will be there."
