IS WELLS FARGO ENGAGED IN CRIMINAL ACTIVITY ON A MASSIVE SCALE?

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

If a private citizen applied for and obtained a loan at Wells Fargo using collateral consisting of dummy assets and fake employment, he or she likely would be charged with violating 18 U.S. Code § 1344 – Bank fraud. The elements of the offense are: Whoever knowingly executes, or attempts to execute a scheme or artifice— (1) to defraud a financial institution; or (2) to obtain any of the moneys, funds, credits, assets, securities, or other property owned by, or under the custody or control of, a financial institution, by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises; shall […]

HILLARY CLINTON’S CAMPAIGN IS IN FULL PANIC MODE OVER DONALD TRUMP’S TRACTION WITH MINORITY VOTERS

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Donald Trump has been courting the minority vote, particularly Black and Latino voters. “Democrats are beginning to worry that too many African-American voters are uninspired by Clinton’s candidacy, leading her campaign to hit the panic button this week and launch an all-out blitz to juice-up voter enthusiasm,” Politico.com reports. Trump’s efforts appear to be paying off. “Hillary Clinton’s campaign is in panic mode. Full panic mode,” said Leslie Wimes, a South Florida-based president of the Democratic African-American Women Caucus,” the site continued. Even the liberal-minded Rolling Stone magazine has taken note of Trump’s vocal African-American supporters, Lynette “Diamond” Hardaway and […]

NEW YORK TIMES: OFFICIAL SUPPORTERS OF HILLARY CLINTON AS REPRESENTED BY THEIR WRITINGS

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

             THE NEW YORK TIMES                  OFFICIAL SUPPORTER OF HILLARY CLINTON AS REPRESENTED BY OUR WRITINGS Think we are kidding? Consider the fact that all of the articles below appeared on the first one-half of the top front page of Tuesday’s New York Times edition. All of them are negative towards Donald Trump. We think it is time for the paper to place the above disclaimer on the front page as well. “Trump Lashes Out, Calling Debate Unfair” “Suburban Women Found Little to Like in Trump” “1996 Miss […]

WHY HILLARY CLINTON LIED ABOUT HER SUPPORT FOR TPP

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

WHY TPP WOULD HURT THE AVERAGE AMERICAN CONSUMER What is TPP? It’s called the Trans-Pacific Partnership or TPP. It involves 12 countries: the US, Japan, Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, Brunei, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, Chile, and Peru. Conspicuously, China is not included. The goal of the membership is to further economic ties between these nations, slashing tariffs and fostering trade to boost growth. The pact has not been ratified and has no effect for now. If confirmed, the agreement could create a new single market larger than the EU. TPP would hurt the average American consumer. TPP IS A CORRUPT […]

TRUMP WINS DEBATE BY BREAKING EVEN TONIGHT– HILLARY CLINTON RESORTS TO NAME-CALLING

Written by , Posted in Blog News

The mission for Donald Trump tonight was to break even– he did that. This is true notwithstanding the moderator’s soft treatment of Hillary Clinton. NBC News anchor, Lester Holt cut Hillary a lot of slack tonight– he frequently interrupted Trump and didn’t ask Clinton a single question about Benghazi and the Clinton Foundation. Both candidates caused him some control problems. Trump was on the defensive at times and curiously laid off on personal attacks and references to Benghazi and the Clinton Foundation. Clinton stooped to name-calling towards the end of the debate saying Trump called women “Piggies” and otherwise abused […]

THE GAP BETWEEN CELL BARS DOES NOT MITIGATE AGAINST THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF SOLITARY CONFINEMENT

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

It is a sad commentary when jail and prison officials cite the “gap between cell bars” as mitigating evidence against the negative effects of solitary confinement. Yet, officials at an LA County Jail have said the spaces between the steel bars “ offer limited interaction with neighboring inmates, even if the men cannot see one other and must yell to be heard. Of course, there is some merit to the contention that visibility beyond the confines of a 7×9 foot cell lessens the claustrophobic sensation most anyone would experience in such confinement. But the bigger question is why use solitary confinement […]

ON BALANCE, WE ENDORSE DONALD TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT: HERE IS WHY

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Although the first Presidential debate is set for this coming Monday, the New York Times had heard enough– today, they did openly, what they have been doing beguilingly in their opinions masqueraded as “news” articles — they endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. The paper’s plan is to put forth Clinton’s positive qualities in this editorial piece and then follow-up with a scathing denouncement of Trump’s flawed character. They provided a snippet of their view of Trump saying that he is “ the worst nominee put forward by a major party in modern American history.” The paper is fond of Clinton because she and “her team […]

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN IS “THINKING IN THE DARK” WHEN HE CALLS DONALD TRUMP A MORON

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Rock and Roller Bruce Springsteen has been running around the country promoting his book, “Born to Run” a rambling, and at times incoherent five hundred page (no index) endeavor. But he recently took a short breather from his book drumming to give an interview to Rolling Stone Magazine. Excerpts from the interview reveal that the subject turned to Donald Trump and Springsteen did a little rambling here too. He characterized Trump as a “moron” and a tragic figure who is moving his “mainstream” followers towards “white nationalism” and other “dangerous ideas;” – he couldn’t fathom the notion that the Republican […]
