Trump Uses Charity Money to Buy Himself Goodies!

The CHumph’s Charity scams are increasingly being exposed a no more than efforts to fund his lavish lifestyle and failing companies – with little or no money going to the actual charities…

Trump used $12,000 in charity money to buy himself a souvenir helmet autographed by Tim Tebow

Presumptive GOP presidential nominee  Donald Trump — already under attack for using charity money for lavish galas and not to help those in need — may have run  afoul of IRS rules by buying himself a Tim Tebow-autographed helmet at an auction by using money from his Trump Foundation.

According to the Washington Post,  the New York businessman placed a $12,000 bid at a charity auction in Palm Beach four years ago that won him the Denver Broncos helmet personally signed by the former quarterback.

But when the time came to pay for helmet, auctioned off by the breast-cancer nonprofit Susan G. Komen organization, Trump sent a check drawn on his own non-profit, The Donald J. Trump Foundation.

According to the Komen Foundation, it was the only contribution they have ever received from Trump.

Trump auction’s win was heralded in the Palm Beach Post, which noted, “The Donald giveth, and The Donald payeth,” although that proved to not be entirely true.

According to experts in non-profit law, Trump could be in violation of IRS laws involving “self-dealing,” if he kept the helmet for himself.

“That would be a classic violation of the prohibition on a charity being operated for the private inurement (benefit) of the charity’s creator,” explained Brett G. Kappel, an expert on tax-exempt organizations.

According to the Post, the  Trump Foundation does not appear to have offices of its own and is headquartered at Trump’s business offices in New York.

Trump University – “Straight up Fraud”

The New York Attorney General is going after the Drumph with both guns blazing. So far, the cases have been Civil, both in California and New York. With the strong statements by the NY AG, that may change over to criminal. Calling out the Judge in California was pure childish petulance.

What may indeed happen here, is that other Trump scams may also come under the legal microscope. Hid Vitamin supplement, and water business seem likely targets. If Trump wins the election, he may be the first President to start office…

From jail.

‘This is straight up fraud’: New York’s attorney general shreds Trump University on ‘Morning Joe’

The Trump campaign is doing its best to spin the embarrassing revelations that came out this week about Trump University, but New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman isn’t having any of it. Appearing on Morning Joe on Thursday, Schneiderman tore through any questions about whether Trump University was a legitimate enterprise or not by forcefully making the case that it was “straight up fraud.”

“It’s like selling people something you say is a Mercedes and it turns out to be a Volkswagen,” Schneiderman said. “And even if some people say, ‘Well actually, I kind of like the Volkswagen,’ it’s still fraud because it’s not a Mercedes. This was not a university.”

Schneiderman then went into detail about how Trump blatantly lied about Trump University in marketing videos aimed at prospective students.

“Trump’s role was really a the pitchman,” he said. “And we’ve got his videotapes, and we’ve got his sworn testimony which undercuts every statement in the videotapes. He said, ‘My hand-picked experts will teach you my personal secrets.’ He and the president of the university have already testified under oath he never met the instructors, they weren’t hand-picked. They weren’t experts — some of them came out of fast food and retail. And he had nothing to do with the supposed secrets that were taught because he had nothing to do with the curriculum.”

Students Attacked by Trump Supporter at Gas Station

More racist attacks by Trump Supporters…

Kansas students attacked by Trump fan at gas station: ‘Brown trash, go home — Trump will win’

Muslim and Hispanic students in Kansas were violently attacked by a man who made racist threats and warned them Donald Trump would win the presidential election.

Khondoker Usama, a Muslim and the student body vice president at Wichita State, said he and a friend were filling their vehicle with gas early Saturday near campus when a white man hurled a racial epithet at a black customer, reported The Wichita Eagle.

The man, who was in his 20s or 30s, then turned his attention to Usama and his friend.

“Then suddenly it turned onto us, calling us ‘brown trash, go home. Trump will win,’” Usama said.

The man then told the students they had better leave the U.S., but Usama told the man he had no right to say that.

The argument escalated, and Usama said the man punched his friend and then shoved him to the ground when he tried to intervene.

Usama said he backed away and called 911 after the attacker reached toward his pocket as he kicked the other student, who was knocked to the ground.

“He saw that I was calling the police and got back on his motorcycle and circled around us and was saying, ‘Trump, Trump, Trump — we will make America great again. You losers will be thrown out of the wall,’” Usama said.

 

Northwestern University freshmen spray-painted Nazi symbols and Trump’s name in chapel

Two freshman students are accused of spray-painting racist and homophobic slurs — along with swastikas and the name of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump — inside a chapel at Northwestern University.

Anthony Morales and Matthew Kafker faced a Cook County judge Saturday on charges of institutional vandalism, hate crime to a place of worship and criminal damage to property, reported the Chicago Tribune.

The 19-year-old Morales and 18-year-old Kafker are accused of breaking into the nondenominational Alice Millar Chapel about 12:45 a.m. Friday and spray-painting the slurs on chapel walls and painting lines over photos of Muslim students posted inside the house of worship.

They also spray-painted penises throughout the church, including on a piano, and painted Nazi symbols in a hallway and Trump’s name in a stairwell.

Minnesota Cop Encourages Public to Run Over BLM Protesters

Amazing!

“Don’t slow down for any of these idiots who try and block the street.”

A St. Paul, Minnesota police officer has been placed on administrative leave after allegedly telling drivers to run over Black Lives Matter protesters who planned to block traffic as part of a march on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Around 1 a.m. on Saturday, a Facebook user named “JM Roth” posted a comment on a Pioneer Press article about the scheduled protest that said: “Run them over. Keep traffic flowing and don’t slow down for any of these idiots who try and block the street.” The comment then suggested how drivers could legally justify hitting protesters with their cars:

Andrew Henderson, a local activist who maintains the Minnesota Cop Block Facebook page, first noted and reported the comment, which has since been deleted, to the St. Paul Police Department. In phone conversations he recorded anduploaded to YouTube, Henderson told Saint Paul Police Department officials that the “JM Roth” account belonged to Sergeant Jeffrey M. Rothecker. Henderson said Rothecker had admitted in previous comments that he was “JM Roth.”

St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman and Police Chief Thomas Smith have denounced the comment and announced that an investigation into the matter is underway. Senior Commander Shari Gray, the head of the department’s internal affairs unit, also met with Henderson on Sunday, according to the Pioneer Press.

“There is no room in the Saint Paul Police Department for employees who threaten members of the public,” Coleman said in a statement released on Monday. “If the allegation is true, we will take the strongest possible action allowed under law.”

The St. Paul Police Federation, the union for officers, is representing Rothecker,according to the Star Tribune.

The news comes one year after motorist Jeffrey P. Rice struck a teenage girl who was protesting outside a Minneapolis police station. The girl was part of a November 2014 demonstration that took place after a Ferguson, Missouri grand jury declined to indict the officer who shot and killed Michael Brown. The girl suffered a minor leg injury. Last October, Rice, who is from St. Paul, pleaded guilty to a charge for failing to yield to a pedestrian. He was fined $575 and ordered to attend a driver’s education course….More Here

Another Travesty of Justice Freeing Alabama Cop

Well – the State injustice system has proven again it should by no means be in charge of rendering justice… Yet another case where the Police are not held accountable for criminal actions.

Vicious Attack on unarmed, non-violent Mr Patel, who was guilty of nothing more than walking while brown

Alabama cop paralyzed Indian grandfather; judge throws out case after two racially charged trials

Sureshbahi Patel was walking on the sidewalk outside of his son’s home in an Alabama suburb on the morning of Feb. 6, 2015, minding his own business, when a white police officer approached him, frisked him and threw him to the ground, leaving him paralyzed.

The 57-year-old grandfather had just arrived to the U.S. from a small town in India, and did not understand English. He reportedly said “no English” and repeated the address of his son’s home to the cop as he approached him.

A neighbor had called Madison, Alabama police claiming they saw someone “suspicious” wandering around the neighborhood. They described him a “skinny black guy” who is “walking around close to the garage.”

Hank Sherrod, the family’s attorney, shot back at the allegation, which he insisted was racist. “This is broad daylight, walking down the street. There is nothing suspicious about Mr. Patel other than he has brown skin.”

“He was just walking on the sidewalk as he does all the time,” the man’s son Chirag Patel explained. Chirag noted his father had no health problems before the incident.

The family filed suit against the police officer, Eric Parker. Police dashcam footage clearly shows Parker violently throwing Patel to the ground. He faced up to 10 years in prison on the charge of excessive force and a civil rights charge of deprivation of rights under color of law.

There were two trials for the case. Both ended with a deadlocked jury, and the results were racially charged.

In the first trial, the 10 white male jurors said the cop was innocent, while the two black female jurors said he was guilty.

Defense attorney Robert Tuten began the second trial with comments critics called racist. “When you come to the U.S. we expect you to follow our laws and speak our language,” he said.

“Mr. Patel bears as much responsibility for this as anyone,” the officer’s lawyer insisted.

Tuten defended the Parker’s actions with racially coded language, saying there was no way the cop could have known whether this was a “harmless Indian grandfather walking down Hardiman Place Lane.”

“The government wants you to give Mr. Patel a free pass because he doesn’t speak English,” Tuten told the jury.

Federal prosecutors were preparing for a third trial, but there now will not be one.

Judge Madeline Hughes Haikala threw the case out late Wednesday night, saying “The Government has had two full and fair chances to obtain a conviction; it will not have another.”

The neurosurgeon who operated on Patel said that, after the police attack, he was left unable to walk or grip things with his hands.

Maryland Cop Who Put His Gun to Homeowner’s Head Sentenced to Prison

Imagine you have gone out with a friend to a restaurant or a ball game, and your friend drives. You get home, and your friend pulls the car in front of your house and you talk for a few minutes before exiting the car to go to your house. A Cop pulls up, and claims you are “illegally parked”, even though thee are no no-parking signs on the street – and you are still in the car with the engine running. You explain to the Cop that this is your house, show him your ID and get out to go home, when the Cop pulls out his gun, and points it in your face while screaming at you – threatening to kill you. That was exactly the situation in PG County in the Maryland suburbs last year. Fortunately a bystander caught the cop on video.

Justice actually happens…Sometimes. This one was an egregious case of a Prince George’s Cop, in the suburbs of Washington, DC attacking a pair of men, one of whom was being dropped off at his home by his friend. The motive apparently was to show off for some of the Cop’s friends who were on an illegal “ride along” on that day.

 Former Md. police officer sentenced for pointing gun at man’s head

The victim of the Police Assault, William Cunningham speaks to the press outside the Courthouse.

A former police officer who was found guilty of holding his gun to a Prince George’s County resident’s head to intimidate him will serve five years in prison without the chance of parole for his actions.

The sentence was the mandatory minimum that former Prince George’s County officer Jenchesky Santiago could have been given. He faced up to 45 years behind bars. He was convicted in December of first- and second-degree assault, use of a handgun during a crime of violence, and misconduct in office.

Santiago’s actions were captured on cellphone video, which was a key piece of evidence at his trial.

The incident happened in 2014 after Santiago, while on patrol, approached a car that he claimed was illegally parked in a Bowie neighborhood. When a passenger in that car tried to walk off to his home, Santiago ordered him back into the car, pulled his weapon when the man refused, and dared the man to a fight. He can be seen on video holding his gun up to the victim’s face.

Before handing down the sentence, Judge Dwight Jackson called the case “sad on a lot of levels” and said there were “no winners … only losers.”

Jackson, the son of a police officer, told Santiago “you have diminished them and what they do.” He speculated that Santiago was “perhaps bored, or perhaps wanted to show off” to two friends whom he had brought on an unauthorized ride-along that day.

The judge also heard at times tearful statements from Santiago’s mother, sister and fiancee, who described him as a caring, loving person devoted to his two young children. Jackson later said, “The person who is here to be sentenced bears no resemblance to the person they know.”

Prosecutors also accused Santiago of not taking responsibility for his actions. In a recorded phone conversation from jail, Santiago “described the fact that not only was he not remorseful and had no intention of apologizing in this case,” said Angela Alsobrooks, the state’s attorney for Prince George’s County, “but still believed even after this case that he was owed an apology from the victim.”

“It kind of didn’t sit well with me to hear that he was not apologetic, or had no remorse,” said victim William Cunningham outside the courthouse. “I did think that he may shoot me, or my life may have been in jeopardy.”

Santiago, now 26, was fired from the police department on Dec. 18. His lawyer said he also expects Santiago to be dishonorably discharged from the Navy, where he serves as a reservist.

Texas Republican Governor Helps Terrorists, Wants to Ignore Constitution

And you thought former Texas Governors George Bush and Rick Perry were stupid?

Yet another dumber than dirt Texas Governor, helping terrorists

Texas governor jeopardized secret investigation of Islamic State suspect: sources

Two Texas politicians made public details of an investigation into a terrorism suspect while it was still in progress, potentially jeopardizing the inquiry, three sources familiar with the matter said on Friday.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick released details from documents that were still under court seal, the sources said. A spokesman for Governor Abbott had no immediate comment. Patrick’s office was not available for comment.

The suspect, Omar Faraj Saeed Al-Hardan, 24, appeared in court on Friday accused of providing material support to Islamic State overseas. He entered the United States as an Iraqi refugee in November 2009 and lived in Houston, according to a court document.

Abbott and Patrick are both Republicans and their party has been fiercely resisting Democratic President Barack Obama’s plan to allow 10,000 Syrian refugees into the country over the next year, arguing that they pose a security risk to the United States. The Obama administration has rejected that assertion.

One of the sources said investigators believe Abbott and Patrick may have learned confidential details of the investigation from the Joint Terrorism Task Force in Texas. The group’s members include local and state law enforcement officers. There was no immediate comment from the task force.

The sources said the politicians’ statements on Thursday night disclosing a terrorism suspect’s arrest forced federal authorities to wrap up their inquiries and rush out public statements and court papers on the case earlier than planned.

Hardan was already in custody at the time, but interviews of potential witnesses were still being conducted when the disclosures were made, the sources.

Texas Governor Wants To Amend The Constitution So States Can Ignore The Federal Government

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on Friday proposed a series of amendments to the U.S. constitution that would permit states to override the Supreme Court and ignore federal laws.

One of the proposed measures would allow a two-thirds majority of the states to override federal regulations, while another sets the same threshold for overturning decisions by the Supreme Court. The governor also wants to change the Constitution to block Congress from “regulating activity that occurs wholly within one state,” and to require a supermajority of seven Supreme Court votes before a “democratically enacted law” can be overturned…More from Governor Dipshit here

Here the 9 Amendments to the US Constitution proposed by Gov Abbott

I mean ..Think about it, There have only been 17 Amendments to the Constitution in the past 300 years (the first 10, were the Bill of Rights)…

Ans this Bozo wants to pass 9?
