Bad Week For Tr….Chumpazoids!

Bad few days for the Chumpazoids.

Ex-GOP candidate loses lawyers after calling Confederate monument opponent a racial slur

The attorneys for a former Republican candidate for U.S. Congress who is suing to keep a controversial Confederate statue standing near the University of Louisville want to drop him after he called an African-American professor a racial slur on social media, WHAS reports.

Everett Corley, a real estate agent and Donald Trump supporter, is trying to use the courts to stop Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and U of L President James Ramsey from taking down the controversial monument, which sits on city property and is the source of numerous student complaints.

Attorneys representing Corley were troubled by a post on Facebook that shows a dead Confederate soldier and a photograph of UofL professor Ricky Jones.

“Here’s who lost today and here’s Ricky Jones, that damn dirty black ___ who won,” Corley wrote.

WHAS redacted the slur.

Ruling against ex-AIG boss Greenberg raises stakes in Trump University case

A ruling by New York’s highest court in a fraud case against former American International Group Inc Chief Executive Maurice “Hank” Greenberg could affect the state’s case against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and his defunct Trump University.

The New York Court of Appeals ruled on Thursday that state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman could seek to recoup millions of dollars in bonus payments to Greenberg using the legal remedy called disgorgement.

Unlike damages, which are used to compensate victims’ losses, disgorgement requires a defendant to give back gains obtained from unlawful means. The ruling means that Schneiderman can go after $5 million he says Trump personally pocketed from the Trump University real-estate seminar venture.

N.C. Republican endorsed by Trump loses primary after mocking woman’s weight

Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) was caught on video mocking a former staffer about her weight as she faced an uphill re-election battle on Tuesday, WCNC-TV reported.

This story has been updated. Please see below.

“Typical Renee,” said the target of Ellmers’ insult, Maggie Sandrock. “She has become a mean girl on steroids in my view.”

The footage shows Ellmers walking by Sandrock — who went from working on Ellmers’ previous campaigns to working for her GOP primary opponent, fellow Rep. George Holding — and telling her, “You’re eating a little bit too much pork barbecue. Whoo!”

The Hill reported that Ellmers, who was endorsed by Donald Trump, was projected to lose the primary, with Holding garnering the win.

And then there was this lambasting of neo-confederate Jeffry Lord by Van Jones…

Donald Trump and that “Mexican” Judge

Usually a good idea to pick your fights. A 150 lb guy should probably stay away from smacking 300 lb NFL Linemen – don’t car if your name is Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee – guys who use railroad boxcars as free weights are folks to avoid physical confrontation with. The proverbial 300 lb Lineman in the Courts system is the Judge. Arguing a legal point is one thing – going after the Judge because of his race or ethnicity, as Trump has…

Can lead to painful consequences.

Wee-weenie types like Trump try and hide their male inadequacies with aggression. In the Drumph’s case that means lots of lawyers and litigation, because heaven forbid that 150 lb guy shows up on his doorstep. Trump’s shady, fraudulent business deals are now coming to light. Taking a swing at the Judge was a really dumb move.

An no, Chicken Drumph – there is no precedent for recusing a Judge due to race.

Judge acknowledges Donald Trump’s attacks, unseals files in Trump U suit

A federal judge blasted by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump Friday has taken note of the fact that Trump isn’t happy with the way the judge is handling lawsuits over alleged fraud by the Trump University real estate seminar program.

Just hours after Trump used a campaign speech at a San Diego convention center to unleash a remarkable verbal fusillade against U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel, the judge — who also happens to be based in the same Southern California city — acknowledged in a much more measured fashion the criticism Trump has aimed at the court.

“Defendant became the front-runner for the Republican nomination in the 2016 presidential race, and has placed the integrity of these court proceedings at issue,” Curiel said in an order unsealing a series of internal Trump University documents that Trump’s lawyers asked be kept from the public.

The judge’s order didn’t make reference to Trump’s 12-minute tirade Friday afternoon in which the all-but-certain Republican nominee called Curiel a “hater” and again invoked his Latino heritage. However, the judge cited a series of news stories from earlier in the campaign, including an NBC story which noted Trump called Curiel “extremely unfair” and an Associated Press story titled, “Trump: Judge’s ethnicity matters in Trump University suit.”

“I have a judge who is a hater of Donald Trump, a hater. He’s a hater. His name is Gonzalo Curiel … I think Judge Curiel should be ashamed of himself,” Trump said at Friday’s rally, echoing many of the same points he made in speeches a few months ago. “I’m telling you, this court system, judges in this court system, federal court, they ought to look into Judge Curiel. Because what Judge Curiel is doing is a total disgrace, OK?”

Curiel said in his order Friday that Trump’s presidential campaign and his criticism of the court were reasons to overrule his objections to the release of so-called “Playbooks” describing Trump University’s operations. The judge also noted that one version was published by POLITICO in March. “The entire 2010 Playbook has been posted online by Politico,” Curiel wrote.

It’s unclear whether the judge knew of Trump’s latest volley of attacks when the judge issued the order Friday afternoon, but it seems possible. Curiously, the Republican candidate laid into the judge at about the same time the judge was holding a hearing less than a mile away on a motion by the Washington Post seeking unsealing of the Trump University-related files. The judge’s order was released a couple hours after the hearing.

Trump suggested Friday, as he has before, that he might move to recuse Curiel from the suits. However, the real estate mogul’s lawyers have never brought such a motion.

Violent Protests At (C)hump Rally in Albequerque

Feel the Love!

The group passing through the crowd in the first video aren’t necessarily Drumph “supporters”. They are the group selected (or paid to) stand behind the candidate during the speech so that the TV Cameras get the image of an “inclusive” crowd. Finding black, Hispanic, or Asian Trump supporters in the actual crowd would be difficult, so it is common at Republican events to “pepper” the crowd with people of color, by paying folks they find on the street to attend, shout, and cheer. It is a common Media practice and goes back to the early days of Rock and Roll, where “Clickers” were people salted into an audience to loudly clap and cheer to get the audience going, or to at least provide the illusion, in the event the Artist in question was not very good – that people were actually cheering their performance.

Things got a little testy later …

I don’t believe the Drumph will be doing much more campaigning in the West.

The Drumph’s Extensive Mafia Connections…

As I said in an earlier piece, you can’t be involved in a major real estate deal in that part of the world and not wind up with some shady connections….

And the Trump is dirtier than most.

Just What Were Donald Trump’s Ties to the Mob?

In his signature book, The Art of the Deal, Donald Trump boasted that when he wanted to build a casino in Atlantic City, he persuaded the state attorney general to limit the investigation of his background to six months. Most potential owners were scrutinized for more than a year. Trump argued that he was “clean as a whistle”—young enough that he hadn’t had time to get into any sort of trouble. He got the sped-up background check, and eventually got the casino license.

But Trump was not clean as a whistle. Beginning three years earlier, he’d hired mobbed-up firms to erect Trump Tower and his Trump Plaza apartment building in Manhattan, including buying ostensibly overpriced concrete from a company controlled by mafia chieftains Anthony “Fat Tony” Salerno and Paul Castellano. That story eventually came out in a federal investigation, which also concluded that in a construction industry saturated with mob influence, the Trump Plaza apartment building most likely benefited from connections to racketeering. Trump also failed to disclose that he was under investigation by a grand jury directed by the U.S. attorney in Brooklyn, who wanted to learn how Trump obtained an option to buy the Penn Central railroad yards on the West Side of Manhattan.

Why did Trump get his casino license anyway? Why didn’t investigators look any harder? And how deep did his connections to criminals really go?

These questions ate at me as I wrote about Atlantic City for The Philadelphia Inquirer, and then went more deeply into the issues in a book, Temples of Chance: How America Inc. Bought Out Murder Inc. to Win Control of the Casino Business. In all, I’ve covered Donald Trump off and on for 27 years, and in that time I’ve encountered multiple threads linking Trump to organized crime. Some of Trump’s unsavory connections have been followed by investigators and substantiated in court; some haven’t. And some of those links have continued until recent years, though when confronted with evidence of such associations, Trump has often claimed a faulty memory. In an April 27 phone call to respond to my questions for this story, Trump told me he did not recall many of the events recounted in this article and they “were a long time ago.” He also said that I had “sometimes been fair, sometimes not” in writing about him, adding “if I don’t like what you write, I’ll sue you.”

I’m not the only one who has picked up signals over the years. Wayne Barrett, author of a 1992 investigative biography of Trump’s real-estate dealings, has tied Trump to mob and mob-connected men.

No other candidate for the White House this year has anything close to Trump’s record of repeated social and business dealings with mobsters, swindlers, and other crooks. Professor Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian, said the closest historical example would be President Warren G. Harding and Teapot Dome, a bribery and bid-rigging scandal in which the interior secretary went to prison. But even that has a key difference: Harding’s associates were corrupt but otherwise legitimate businessmen, not mobsters and drug dealers.

This is part of the Donald Trump story that few know. As Barrett wrote in his book, Trump didn’t just do business with mobbed-up concrete companies: he also probably met personally with Salerno at the townhouse of notorious New York fixer Roy Cohn, in a meeting recounted by a Cohn staffer who told Barrett she was present. This came at a time when other developers in New York were pleading with the FBI to free them of mob control of the concrete business.

From the public record and published accounts like that one, it’s possible to assemble a clear picture of what we do know. The picture shows that Trump’s career has benefited from a decades-long and largely successful effort to limit and deflect law enforcement investigations into his dealings with top mobsters, organized crime associates, labor fixers, corrupt union leaders, con artists and even a one-time drug trafficker whom Trump retained as the head of his personal helicopter service…Read the Rest of This Damning Information Here

Big Money Republican Donors Desert Trump

A Presidential race i today’s terms costs about $1 billion. Much of that money comes from the uber-rich. When that group bails on a candidate, life in terms of television ads and door-to-door campaigning gets tough. It seems that some of the big money players – the guys whop drop $10 or more million have headed out the door on the Drumph…

The bad news for the Drumph (and good news for the country) is that the presumptive nominee, Hillary already has a strong organization in place. Further – Drumph is worth only a small fraction of the $10 billion he claims, and by evidence released recently has avoided paying any taxes.

Several Big Republican Donors Refuse to Contribute to Trump’s Candidacy

Donald Trump may have sealed the peace with the Republican Party and a few of those who once criticized him. Yet his ability to raise $1 billion before November is in doubt, as several powerful donors who have given tens of millions to the GOP over the years refuse to get behind Trump’s presidential candidacy. The New York Timesgot in touch with 50 of the GOP’s largest donors or their representatives and found “a measure of contempt and distrust toward their own party’s nominee that is unheard of in modern presidential politics.” More than a dozen of them flat out refuse to back Trump.

Some of those who are refusing to back Trump will surely come around. Others, however, speak in terms that make it clear they want nothing to do with the real estate mogul and reality television star. “If it is Trump vs. Clinton,” hedge fund manager William Oberndorf said, “I will be voting for Hillary.” He’s hardly alone. “He’s an ignorant, amoral, dishonest and manipulative, misogynistic, philandering, hyper-litigious, isolationist, protectionist blowhard,” investor Michael K. Vlock said.

The resistance from the megarich may be a sign that Trump could very well become the first Republican presidential candidate to be outspent by a Democrat in decades. Some, however, are vowing to stand by Trump. One of them is Foster Friess, who sent an email to the Hill on Saturday explaining his reasoning for supporting the presumptive nominee. “I believe that as Republicans continue to unite behind Donald Trump, he’ll become an even better candidate,” he said.

Chicago Priests Attempt Exorcising Trump

Getting rid of the Devil….

Chicago priests cast out Trump effigy’s demons during May Day exorcism in Chicago

Chicago priests prayed for Donald Trump’s soul and exorcised his effigy during Sunday’s May Day demonstrations. The video, which is in Spanish, appeared today after reports on the exorcism were tweeted out from @Aaroncynic’s account.

The march began at Chicago’s Union Park and proceeded to Trump Tower, May 1st, which is not only International Workers’ Day, but is also commemorated in Chicago as the anniversary of the Haymarket Affair, where a rally for workers’ rights turned deadly, resulting in the death of eight people. Labor union members were charged in the affair, with eight of them convicted, and four later hanged. Their convictions were considered to be politically motivated, and the four who died are often referred to as “martyrs.”

During this May Day celebration, the priests identified Trump as the current threat to workers’ rights.

“We ask that you bring out the demons and demonic forces of our brother, Donald Trump,” spoke the lead priest. “We ask, oh gracious God, to take away the hatred, bigotry and racism and the forked speaking tongue that he’s had and replace it with a powerful tongue and care,” the Chicagoist reported.
