Three Decades Of Trump’s Russia Ties Exposed In One Democratic Coalition Report! President Obama Reviewed This Report After The 2016 Election

Posted in Donald Trump, Donald Trump Scam, Equality, Extreme Views, GOP Wrecking America, Obama Administration, Obama's Compassion, Politics, Politics 2016, Republican Scam, United States on July 5, 2017 by sheriffali

Donald Trump has been visiting Moscow since 1987, has extensive Russian business ties and is lying to the American public by denying his active businesses and multi-decade venture to extend the Trump Organization into that country.

 

That’s the conclusion of a Democratic Coalition report written by Scott Dworkin, which provides a 24-point explainer of the President-elect’s lengthy ties to Russia.

 

“This evidence further calls into question the recent conclusion made by the FBI,” said Dworkin about America’s top federal law enforcement, “which stated that there was no clear connection between President-elect Trump and Russia to be found.”

 

President Obama reviewed an earlier draft of the “Dworkin Report” immediately following the election.

FACT: Donald Trump has filed 6 Bankruptcies totaling 4.7 Billion Dollars; has more than 3,500 Law Suits against him mostly for not paying his bills; has 169 Federal Law Suits against him; has a Federal Law Suit that begins on November 28, 2016 for creating a Fake University and embezzling tens of millions of dollars from Students that includes; Young People, Middle-Age, Veterans and yes, Senior Citizens.

 

The Federal Case is under the RICO-ACT – “Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organization.” Donald Trump is also facing a Case in New York accusing him of Raping a 13 year Old Girl. This case begins in December 2016. Donald Trump has admitted to Sexual Harassment on a “Live Video” for which Billy Bush was fired from NBC for his participation. Trump admitted to Groping Women Genitals and kissing them without their permission and thus far, 13 women have come forward for Sexual Harassment by Donald Trump.

 

Donald Trump’s Pollster has just come forward accusing Trump for not paying $767,000.00 for Polls the Pollster conducted at the request and on behalf of Donald Trump.

 

Hillary Clinton: Admitted to making a regrettable error for using a Private Email and Private Server while she was Secretary of State. Hillary Clinton was cleared of any criminal wrongdoings by the FBI.

 

Hillary Clinton is a Lawyer, graduated from Yale University and Hillary has worked on matters concerning Children; Civil Right; Women Rights and Equal Justice For All Under The Law.

 

Hilary Clinton was First Lady of Arkansas, First Lady of The United States, US Senator For New York and Secretary of State. Hillary Clinton has released her Tax Returns from 1977 through 2015. Donald Trump has refused to release any of his Tax Returns, and according to FACTS by the New York Times, Trump hasn’t paid any Federal Taxes for at least 18 plus years.

 

On November 8, 2016 we vote to Elect a New President as President Obama steps down from the Two Terms as allowed by Law. If you set aside the rambunctious out of control Media and Republicans, some Independents and yes, even some Democratic noise about Hillary Clinton and “Search The Truth” about Hillary Clinton, I have no doubt that the decision to Vote for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump, wouldn’t be difficult at all.

Showing Confidence, Hillary Clinton Pushes Into Republican Strongholds With Michelle Obama Leading The Way Into Arizona

[NYT] “Hillary Clinton’s campaign is planning its most ambitious push yet into traditionally right-leaning states, a new offensive aimed at extending her growing advantage over Donald J. Trump while bolstering down-ballot candidates in what party leaders increasingly suggest could be a sweeping victory for Democrats at every level.

 

Signaling extraordinary confidence in Mrs. Clinton’s electoral position and a new determination to deliver a punishing message to Mr. Trump and Republicans about his racially tinged campaign, her aides said Monday that she would aggressively compete in Arizona, a state with a growing Hispanic population that has been ground zero for the country’s heated debate over immigration.

 

Mrs. Clinton is “dramatically expanding” her efforts in Arizona, her campaign manager, Robby Mook, told reporters on Monday. She is pouring more than $2 million into advertising and dispatching perhaps her most potent surrogate, Michelle Obama, for a rally in Phoenix on Thursday.

 

In Indiana and Missouri, Mr. Mook said, the campaign will spend a total of $1 million to drive voter turnout, despite what he acknowledged was an “uphill battle” for Mrs. Clinton in two states that could determine control of the Senate. Mrs. Clinton is also directing more money to a series of presidential battleground states with competitive House races.”

 

Support and Vote Hillary Clinton President and Elect a Democratic Controlled Congress!

Donald Trump: With Less Than A Month And No Where To Go But Down. Trump, His Surrogates And Followers Have Descended To Conspiracy And Insanity!

[SALON] “It’s dizzying trying to keep up with the craziness in the presidential campaign of Republican nominee Donald Trump these days. On Wednesday we had rolling revelations of sexual assault and misconduct, lies about the WikiLeaks data dump of hacked private emails and Trump pretty much coming unraveled on the stump, with a Mussolini-esque speech promising to put Hillary Clinton’s lawyers in jail. It was quite a day.

 

It’s been well documented by now that Trump and his advisers are plugged into the far right on a level we’ve never seen before in a presidential campaign. He has a close connection to the fringe with campaign CEO Steve Bannon, former Breitbart head and godfather of the alt-right movement, and assistant campaign manager David Bossie, professional Clinton character assassin and founder of the right-wing “oppo” group Citizens United.

 

Even campaign manager Kellyanne Conway made her bones in the 1990s as a Bill Clinton TV “prosecutor,” who also happens to be married to a right-wing lawyer who was deeply involved in setting up the Paula Jones case. Trump’s kitchen cabinet includes dirty trickster Roger Stone and professional conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. And while he seems to compulsively watch more mainstream outlets like CNN and Fox News, it seems clear that Trump is also heavily influenced by the Drudge-driven paranoid narratives that have favored him throughout the 2016 race.

 

What this has led to is a campaign with millions of followers so deeply mired in convoluted conspiracy theories that they have completely lost touch with reality. Most obvious of these, of course, is the birther conspiracy that held that Barack Obama was not a native-born U.S. citizen and was therefore an illegitimate president. Trump didn’t publicly indulge in the more sinister of theories which suggested that Obama was some sort of “Manchurian candidate” planted by a foreign power. But it fits so well with his xenophobic worldview that it’s fair to assume it played some part in his obsession with the tall tale.”

 

Support And Vote Hillary Clinton For President And Elect A Democratic Controlled Congress To Keep America Moving Forward.

It’s Already Happening! Yes, Trump Is Closing In On The Polls, But Here’s Why That’s Meaningless!

[Salon] “As you read this, pollsters are preparing to release surveys conducted over the past weekend and its immediate aftermath, when Hillary Clinton made her accurate but perhaps poorly phrased comment about Donald Trump’s “deplorable” fans, then nearly passed out at a 9/11 memorial service in New York before revealing she had been trying to “power through” a case of walking pneumonia. This allowed the media to start reporting on rumors about her health, which had previously been the province of the right-wing fever swamps from which Trump has drawn much of his support and campaign staff.

 aaliphotos-177

In other words, the news of the moment will likely result in some polls at both the national and swing-state level that do not look so good for Clinton. Hey look, it is already happening!

 

These polls will lead partisans to add to an already-vibrant chorus of grumbling about Clinton’s inability to already demolish Trump and political writers who will tell you that the carrot-colored real-estate mogul has “momentum.” Hey look, that too is already happening.

 

 

This would all be a lot more frightening if the narrowing polls had not been totally predictable, independent of any caterwauling from the media about health scares and Kinsley gaffes.  For we have now come to the Great Tightening, that point of every recent presidential election cycle when the candidates see their numbers in national and swing-state polls inch closer to each other. Predictably, this is being followed by the Great Freak-Out, when supporters of the leading candidate set their hair on fire and run through the public square screaming for water.

 

 

But this weekend’s stumbles by Clinton are also why articles that claim Trump has “momentum” tell us nothing more than that the writer had a quota to fill for the day. Momentum is an overrated concept in national elections at the presidential level, especially this late in the game.

 

 

In 2012, for example, Mitt Romney was supposed to have momentum after he performed much more strongly in his first debate against President Obama than most people expected. During this year’s primaries, Bernie Sanders was said to have momentum when he won the Michigan primary, and again when he won Wisconsin a few weeks later.”

Don’t Fall For It! Donald Trump Is Disliked Because He Lies To People; “Hillary Clinton Is Disliked Because She Is Lied About.”

 

Let us begin on Taxes! Hillary Clinton has released 39 Years of Tax Returns – From 1977 thru 2015. Hillary and Bill Clinton pay a total Tax Rate of 34.2%.

 

Donald Trump has unequivocally refused to release any of his Tax Returns, sighting a Non-Existence Audit and the only [2] two returns that we have of Donald Trump from 1977 and 1978, Donald Trump paid Zero Taxes. It is not assuming but it is fair to say that Trump’s reluctance to release any of his Tax Returns is self evident that he is a scam Artist. He is not worth what he says he is and that is 10 Billion Dollars. He hasn’t given any money to Charity despite Trump’s claim that he has given 10’s of Millions to Charity. [No one can find anyone that received Charity from Donald Trump.

 

Hillary Clinton has dedicated her entire life to serving the Public and to date, she has never filed Bankruptcy, sued for unpaid bills, scamming innocent people, young, middle-age, Veterans and the elderly for running a Fake University that embezzled tens of millions from desperate and vulnerable people. Hillary Clinton has never been Divorced. And, despite the 100 Million Dollars Plus Republicans have spent over the past 30 years investigating Hillary Clinton, she has never been charged, indicted or arrested.

 

On the other hand Donald Trump has filed [6] six Bankruptcies totaling 4.7 Billion Dollars; sued 5,500 times including 169 Federal Suits, all for not paying his bills or for scams he committed. At the moment Donald Trump is ordered to appear in New York and California for FRUAD stemming from Trump’s Fake University where he embezzled 10’s of Millions of Dollars. The Court has placed these cases under the RICO ACT – “Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organization.” Trump has been Married and Divorced [3] three times.

 

Donald Trump attempted to delegitimize the First African American President, Barack Obama by starting nefarious claims that Mr. Obama wasn’t born in the United States, despite Obama’s Mother was a White American Woman, born in El Dorado, Kansas.

 

Trump has been sued for Discrimination by the Federal Government; Donald Trump has aligned himself with the KKK and every White Supremacists Group Across America and in addition, Donald Trump is a Con Man, Corrupt and a Pathological Liar. Donald Trump is an outspoken; Bigot, Fascist, Misogynist, Racist and a perpetuator of Hate and Lies.

 

And yet, our Corporate Owned Political Media has brushed over all of Donald Trump’s egregious machinations and have constantly lied about everything having to do with Hillary Clinton, The Clinton Foundation and even Mrs. Clinton illness.

 

Republicans Sperm conceived Donald Trump and the Media Volunteered to be Trump’s surrogate mother.

Yet, Ivanka Stood On The Stage In Ohio, Endorsing Her Crooked Father To Be President To Do To America What He Has Done For His Companies – 4 Bankruptcies; 4.7 Billion Dollars; 3,500 Plus Law Suits, Mostly For Not Paying His Bills And Embezzling Vulnerable People With A Fake University. The Trumps And The Republicans Are Shamelessly And Morally Bankrupt.

ALIHILLARY 22

We cannot depend on the Anti-Hillary Corporate Owned Media to give Democrats equal time now that the Republican Dog and Pony Convention Show is over. The Media afforded the GOP Nominee, Donald Trump, Con Man, Bankruptcy Swindler, University Fraudster, Bigot, Fascist, Misogynist, Racist and Humanity’s biggest Liar, innumerable Free Hours Of Air Time, during the Primary and subsequently. CNN has hired Surrogates Paid by Donald Trump and also paid by CNN to be part of every CNN PROGRAM. MSNBC is not far behind and FOX NEWS has always been the Republican Mouth Piece.

 

We Democrats and the sensible Republican Voters must understand that Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Down Tickets need all the help we can provide via Social Media. For those that are not aware, Social Media is much more powerful than the Corporate Owned Media. There aren’t any Real Television Anchors anymore, “there are just Puppets posing as Anchors that are being pulled by their Corporate Bosses to not report the news, but to influence your thinking. After all, the only thing The Corporate Media cares about is not what’s best for America; they only care about their Ratings and how much more Mammon they can deposit in their Bank Accounts.

 

Republicans have been a disgrace to America; however, they have really crossed the line in embarrassing America by Nominating the most Crooked Man, Liar and Racist, as their Nominee for President.

 

In the words of President John F. Kennedy; “It is never too late to do the right thing!” Stop the Republicans and Donald Trump from entering the White House and remove control from the GOP of both the Senate and the house.

 

Support and Vote Hillary Clinton President and Vote for a Democratic Controlled Senate and House.

If you think about it, Donald Trump, human’s lowest denominator, The Bigoted, Fascist, Misogynist, Racist, Bankruptcy Swindler and Certified Con Man, do not possess the credibility to question anyone, period.

 

 

And, the Imploding Republican Party has Chosen this Charlatan as their Nominee. This is a man that is proud of stealing and wrecking the lives of so many, by filing 4 Bankruptcies (4.7 Billion Dollars) and is involved in over 3,500 Law Suits, most of them are about, Donald Trump failure to pay his Bills.

 

 

Donald Trump to this day has unequivocally refused to release his Tax Returns! What is Trump Hiding?

 

 

Hillary Clinton has released 33 years of hers and Bill’s Tax Returns. And yes, the Media and Republicans questions Hillary’s honesty! Amazing isn’t it?

 

 

To avoid America falling off the cliff as it did in 2008 at the hands of George W Bush, Dick Cheney and the Republican Congress; we must come together as one Democratic Party and support Hillary Clinton for President, and all of the Down Tickets for the Senate, House and Governors’ Mansions.

 

 

With Hillary Clinton in the White House and Democrats controlling both Senate and the House of Representatives, Hillary Clinton will be able to implement Policies that would benefit America and all Americans, not just the people at the top.

President Obama A Man Of Passion And Compassion Will Rename Mount McKinley In Alaska To Its Original Native American Name “Denali” – “The Great One”

Posted in American History, Native Americans, Obama's Compassion, Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 31, 2015 by sheriffali

[NYT] President Obama announced on Sunday thatMount McKinley was being renamed Denali, using his executive power to restore an Alaska Native name with deep cultural significance to the tallest mountain in North America.

 

The move came on the eve of Mr. Obama’s trip to Alaska, where he will spend three days promoting aggressive action to combat climate change, and is part of a series of steps he will make there meant to address the concerns of Alaska Native tribes.

 

It is the latest bid by the president to fulfill his 2008 campaign promise to improve relations between the federal government and the nation’s Native American tribes, an important political constituency that has a long history of grievances against the government.

 

Denali’s name has long been seen as one such slight, regarded as an example of cultural imperialism in which a Native American name with historical roots was replaced by an American one having little to do with the place.

 

The central Alaska mountain has officially been called Mount McKinley for almost a century. In announcing that Sally Jewell, the secretary of the interior, had used her power to rename it, Mr. Obama was paying tribute to the state’s Native population, which has referred to the site for generations as Denali, meaning “the high one” or “the great one.”

 

The peak, at more than 20,000 feet, plays a central role in the creation story of the Koyukon Athabascans, a group that has lived in Alaska for thousands of years.

 

Mr. Obama, freed from the political constraints of an impending election in the latter half of his second term, was also moving to put to rest a yearslong fight over the name of the mountain that has pit Alaska against electorally powerful Ohio, the birthplace of President William McKinley, for whom it was christened in 1896.

 

The government formally recognized the name in 1917, and efforts to reverse the move began in Alaska in 1975. In an awkward compromise struck in 1980, the national park surrounding it was named Denali National Park and Preserve, but the mountain continued to be called Mount McKinley.

 

Senator Lisa Murkowski, Republican of Alaska, introduced legislation in January to rename the peak, but Ohio lawmakers sought to block the move. In June, an Interior Department official said in testimony before Congress that the administration had “no objection” to Ms. Murkowski’s proposed change.

 

In a video released on Sunday, Ms. Murkowski cheered Mr. Obama’s decision.

 

{For the Obama Critics, remember that American was founded on two monumental crimes – The Genocide Of 120 Million Native Americans; And The Enslavement Of Africans}.
