Hey y'all. You might be running into this account thinking its SherlockFaustXX my bad. Same person btw I just forgot about this account a long time ago when I was trying to turn over a new leaf. I can't really say for sure whether I have succeeded or not but I still want to try. I would rather have my efforts be in vain than to stop trying at all.

Dear (insert member of the electoral college in your state here),
I’m writing to you to ask you not cast your vote for Donald Trump in case he wins the majority vote in the upcoming 2016 election. Below is an example quote from a newspaper as well as a multitude of quotes that justifies my discomfort for Donald Trump as a candidate for president. I feel that there is nothing more I can say that hasn’t already been said in these quotes below that prove that he is unfit to be in the white house. Thank you for your time.

GOP lawmakers who have called for Trump to step down:
— Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois
— Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska
— Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona
— Sen. Michael Crapo of Idaho
— Sen. Mike Lee of Utah
— Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska
— Sen. Dan Sullivan of Alaska

Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., said she was "deeply offended" by Trump's remarks, calling them "disgusting and demeaning," and said, "The appropriate next step may be for him to re-examine his candidacy."
Lawmakers who called for Trump to step down but in a reversal said they would vote for the GOP ticket of Trump and Mike Pence:
— Sen. Deb Fischer of Nebraska
— Sen. John Thune of South Dakota
— Rep. Bradley Byrne of Alabama
—Rep. Scott Garrett of New Jersey

On Thursday, Clinton’s endeavors got a boost ― though, apparently, through no effort of her own. Thirty Republicans who served in Congress signed a letter saying they couldn’t vote for Trump in the general election. “In nominating Donald Trump, the Republican Party has asked the people of the United States to entrust their future to a man who insults women, mocks the handicapped, urges that dissent be met with violence, seeks to impose religious tests for entry into the United States, and applies a de facto ethnicity test to judges,” the letter reads. “He offends our allies and praises dictators. His public statements are peppered with lies. He belittles our heroes and insults the parents of men who have died serving our country. Every day brings a fresh revelation that highlights the unacceptable danger in electing him to lead our nation.”
www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/r…

Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Col. Steve Ganyard said Donald Trump’s comments about his classified intelligence briefing this week troubled some in the intelligence community, saying, “Our friends in the intelligence community were quite upset to hear that sort of talk.”
“I think if there was any discomfort, it was not signaling any personal preference or policy. It was more because they understood that what they were saying might be used against them in a way that was untrue,”

If there was a bright spot to the explosive story about his taxes in The New York Times, Trump supporters said, it was that it may shift the national conversation away from Trump's weeklong feud with a former beauty queen he called "Miss Piggy" as he shamed her for gaining weight, and his unfounded suggestion Hillary Clinton may have cheated on her husband.
"He's not been on message," said Barry Bennett, a former Trump adviser. "A week was wasted where he could have been talking about the heroin epidemic and jobs and ISIS. All the money in the world can't get that time back."

(2) If Trump had followed through on his promise to release his tax documents, all of this could have litigated and re-litigated long ago. Some frustrated right-leaning Trump opponents are now faulting the party for not applying enormous pressure to force Trump to comply during the primary, so that GOP voters could have gotten a sense of what the media and Democrats might drop on him in the final stretch of a general election.

In short, Donald Trump appears to have lost more than $900 million in 1995, and may have used the resulting write-offs to avoid paying personal income taxes for the better part of two decades. I say "may" because the Times openly speculates in its own story, using the phrase "could have" in its lead paragraph.
townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenso…

Donald Trump's most recent response to the publication in The New York Times of 1995 personal state tax returns showing him reporting a $916 million loss — meaning he could have avoided paying federal income tax for 18 years — is that he "brilliantly" used the tax system to his advantage. "I understand the tax laws better than almost anyone, which is why I am one who can truly fix them,” When Inside Edition asked Mitnick if he thought Trump was "brilliant" in his use of the tax system in 1996, Mitnick laughed: "No, I did all the tax preparation. He never saw the product until it was presented to him for signature."

Yeah, rich people not paying taxes is really annoying to those of us who do pay taxes. And it's arrogant. And it's reminiscent of a quote attributed to the "Queen of Mean," the late wealthy New York hotelier Leona Helmsley: "We don't pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes."
www.philly.com/philly/blogs/gr…

Your personal tax return will have a loss of $120,000 flowing through to page 1.  Further back there will be a Form 6198 that will show a loss of $480,000 to be carried to future years.  What is the case now and what most people thought was the case back in the day is that if the corporation hands the keys to the bank and you just walk away, that carryover loss goes “poof”.

"Mr. Trump, you can be an American hero — become a model for your fellow billionaires. Bring those plants back to America," Sanders said. "He does not pay a nickel in federal income taxes, and he's proud of that. Because he thinks we can just stiff the middle class, you pay taxes," Sanders said.

“No one asked me to do it, no one forced me to do it. I will return on Nov. 9. I've agreed to that,” Giuliani said. “I am gonna spend the vast majority of my time between now and Nov. 8 trying to elect Donald Trump and prevent Hillary Clinton, who I consider to be a danger to America” from becoming president.

As it turns out, Giuliani family dinners are about to get heated this holiday season, because Politico contacted Giuliani and confirmed the page belongs to her. Politico is reporting that Caroline is endorsing Clinton this election season: Caroline isn't alone in breaking with her father's endorsement of Trump. The former mayor's onetime press secretary, Matt Higgins, has also endorsed Clinton for president.

Rudy Giuliani defended Donald Trump's crude remarks about women Sunday, telling CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" that "men at times talk like that."

“Whites who were born in their hometowns and never left are really strong Trump supporters,” said Daniel Cox, PRRI’s director of research. “If you’re raised in a more culturally conservative area and you never leave, chances are that you’re going to be a bit more insular.

Interestingly, Japan was a key topic of discussion during the 90-minute showdown. Clinton brought up Japan first. She said her Republican opponent "has said repeatedly that he didn't care if other nations got nuclear weapons -- Japan, South Korea, even Saudi Arabia." Clinton called for a stronger alliance with Japan instead. Trump argued that the U.S. allies "do not pay us" for being defended by the U.S. "We can't defend Japan, a behemoth, selling us cars by the million," he also said. It is unusual for the Asian country to be highlighted in a presidential debate. Even in the 1980s, when trade disputes between the U.S. and Japan escalated, presidential candidates hardly referred to Japan during debates. To be exact, Japan was mentioned once by Republican Ronald Reagan in 1980, and once by Democrat Walter Mondale in 1984.

Beyond these single issues, it’s Trump’s general lack of “Asian policy experience,” partially meaning his lack of personal connections among influential bilateral policy experts — the “Japan hands” in Washington and New York, and “American hands” in Tokyo who tend to emphasize ever-closer economic and military relations — that has drawn much of the concerned commentary.

Lester Holt asked him whether he would “accept the outcome [of the election] as the will of the voters,” and he said unequivocally “the answer is that if she wins I will absolutely support her.” But that was before he lashed out against the media for his poor performance, before the polls began to tilt back in Clinton’s favor. Now that he’s behind, Trump has returned to questioning the legitimacy of the election.

Under a Trump presidency, the green blob will be slain causing massive – but necessary – stock market disruption as the entire, Enron-inspired green Ponzi scheme unravels and the Augean stables containing three or four decades’ worth of environmentalist ordure are finally swept clean.

Monty, an immigration lawyer in Houston, was one of several Hispanics who expected Trump to ease his immigration policies following their meeting with Trump in mid-August. But Monty and other Latinos dumped Trump and quit his Hispanic advisory council after Trump recommitted to mass deportations and to a pledge to make Mexico pay for a border wall in an Aug. 31 speech in Arizona. "Probably Hillary is going to win. We need to be prepared for that," he told NBC Latino. "None of us has an Ouija board, but that's the way I see it. That's the way all the founders of the Latino Conservative Conclave see it."

Randal Pinkett, winner of Season 4 of The Apprentice and former employee of the Trump Organization, says there’s likely a reason for Trump’s enduring sexism. “Donald surrounds himself with people who don’t challenge him,” he told The Daily Beast. “He weeds out people who want to challenge Donald or who want to be critical of Donald.” A person who would bristle at Donald’s habit of asking male contestants if they found a woman attractive or if they’d sleep with a particular woman on set, for example, would likely be eliminated.

Trump has proclaimed that he has a "secret" plan for defeating the murderous Islamic extremist group that controls parts of Iraq and Syria. He has refused to reveal it, claiming that would tip off the enemy. But he has also promised that in the first 30 days of a Trump administration, he would ask the generals for an anti-ISIS plan. Which is confusing because he has also said he knows more about ISIS than the generals and that he would fire most of the generals. Still, at the same time, Trump brags that he does have his own plan that he can share publicly. That's what he sent out and what's posted on his campaign website. Yet here's one big rub: It's essentially the same plan as President Barack Obama's and Hillary Clinton's.
m.motherjones.com/politics/201…

Trump ultimately withdrew his prospective 2000 candidacy and promptly returned to the unfiltered person whose inflammatory statements have defined his image ever since — endearing him this year to many Republican presidential primary voters but emerging in the general election campaign as a focal point for critics, including Democrat Hillary Clinton, who say he is temperamentally unfit for the White House.
www.washingtonpost.com/politic…

Reaction to the video of Donald Trump using explicit language and apparently describing himself forcing himself on women continues to roll in. And it is not good for the GOP nominee. Prominent Republicans are calling on him to drop out and elected officials are running from him and fast. The candidate isn't backing down, telling the Washington Post's Robert Costa in an interview today, "I'd never withdraw. I've never withdrawn in my life."
www.npr.org/2016/10/08/4971819…

Trump initially dismissed the video in a Friday afternoon statement as “locker-room banter,” but aides and family members confronted the GOP nominee to issue a more direct apology. “And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything,” Trump says in the video with NBC’s Billy Bush, then of “Access Hollywood.” “Grab them by the p—y,” he continued. “You can do anything.”
time.com/4523851/donald-trump-…

Unsurprisingly, professional athletes grew irate at the insinuation that similar lewd remarks were commonplace in men's locker rooms. Here's what they had to say. It confused Los Angeles Clippers guard Jamal Crawford. Portland Trailblazers guard CJ McCollum said he hadn't heard any "locker room talk" like that before. L.A. Galaxy player Robbie Rogers tweeted that he was offended by Trump's remark. Oakland A's Pitcher Sean Doolittle pushed back against that notion of "locker room talk." So did Chris Kluwe, a former Minnesota Vikings punter and outspoken Deadspin columnist. As did Cleveland Cavaliers forward Dahntay Jones. No, nonconsensual sexual advances aren't part of the locker room, Philadelphia 76ers guard Kendall Marshall insisted. "It's a Ted Bundy quote," sniped UFC mixed martial artist CM Punk. Not "locker room talk." Blake Griffin, a star Los Angeles Clippers forward, used the comment as an opportunity to mock Trump's heavy breathing. Retired NBA center Jason Collins, the league's first openly gay player, riffed off of a tweet from John Amaechi, a fellow former NBA player who is also gay, about Trump's apparent lack of foreign policy communication with his running mate. He also found room to get in a breathing dig. On a serious note, former Olympic hurdler Queen Harrison said "locker room talk" -- like the phrase "boys will be boys" -- weren't valid excuses for making lewd remarks. More than anyone, though, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Chris Conley seem to take issue with the comments. He rattled off a Twitter rant pushing back against Trump followed by some words for wisdom. Jacob Tamme, tight end for the Atlanta Falcons, dropped the mic by saying that he needed another shower after beating the Denver Broncos Sunday afternoon.
amp.cnn.com/cnn/2016/10/10/pol…

“They’re not going to make me quit, and they can’t make me quit,” Trump added, speaking of those who have urged him to step aside. “The Republicans, you’ve got to remember, have been running for a long time. The reason they don’t win is because they don’t stick together.”
www.washingtonpost.com/politic…

Trump called the video a "distraction," noted that it was a "more-than decade-old video" and promised to be a "better man." But he also took aim Bill Clinton and the former president's record with women, without elaborating.

In what has become a familiar pattern, Republican lawmakers and party officials were quick to condemn the statements as inexcusable, though only a handful have rescinded their endorsements. Several Republicans who have not endorsed Trump called on him to step aside as the nominee for the good of the party, as GOP operatives said they are growing increasingly concerned about an Election Day rout. The comments led Speaker of the House Paul Ryan to disinvite the GOP nominee from a planned unity fundraiser and rally in Wisconsin Saturday.

In a statement, Melania Trump called her husband's words "unacceptable and offensive to me."
"This does not represent the man that I know," she said. "He has the heart and mind of a leader. I hope people will accept his apology, as I have, and focus on the important issues facing our nation and the world." "As a husband and father, I was offended by the words and actions described by Donald Trump," said Pence, who is governor of Indiana.
mobile.reuters.com/article/idU…

Another prominent Republican — Sen. John McCain of Arizona, the party's 2008 presidential nominee — said recent events have made it "impossible to continue to offer even conditional support for his candidacy." "No woman should ever be described in these terms or talked about in this manner," Priebus said. "Ever."
www.usatoday.com/story/news/po…

"I thought supporting the nominee was the best thing for our country and our party," Alabama Rep. Martha Roby said in a statement. "Now, it is abundantly clear that the best thing for our country and our party is for Trump to step aside and allow a responsible, respectable Republican to lead the ticket."
www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/…

But his real message, which appeared early Saturday, was one of defiance. He described the controversy that upended the Republican Party for most of Friday as a mere “distraction,” and said that his vulgar remarks captured on the tape were nothing compared with the way Bill and Hillary Clinton had mistreated women.
mobile.nytimes.com/2016/10/08/…

"I wanted to be able to support my party’s nominee, chosen by the people, because I feel strongly that we need a change in direction for our country. However, I’m a mom and an American first, and I cannot and will not support a candidate for president who brags about degrading and assaulting women. I will not be voting for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton and instead will be writing in Governor Pence for president on Election Day," Ayotte said. "I accept that none of us are perfect. However, I can no longer look past this pattern of behavior and inappropriate comments from Donald Trump," Heck said Saturday to scattered boos in a Nevada crowd. "Therefore, I cannot, in good conscience, continue to support him nor can I vote for Hillary Clinton." Still, not everyone was ready to ditch the GOP nominee. Asked about whether he will disavow Trump, Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) said that he is "going to watch his level of contrition over the next few days to determine my level of support."
www.politico.com/story/2016/10…

The current governor of Utah, Gary Herbert, said he "will not vote for Trump" and former Gov. Jon Huntsman, who just endorsed Trump last week, rescinded his endorsement and told the Salt Lake City Tribune that "the time has come for Governor Pence to lead the ticket." "Denouncing Trump's obviously disgusting comments is not enough.The remaining question is whether Republicans will continue to support his candidacy and call him a role model. Trump's abhorrent comments are not a one-off," the Democratic National Committee released in a statement.
www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-…

One of the most forceful defections came from maverick Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, who told CNN, “That was an apology for getting caught,” while also declaring, “I’m out!”
www.politico.com/story/2016/10…

The third-most powerful Senate Republican, John Thune, a member of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's inner circle, called on Trump to "withdraw" and let Pence top the Republican ticket. Arizona Sen. John McCain, the party's 2008 nominee, announced he won't vote for Trump.
amp.cnn.com/cnn/2016/10/08/pol…

The pressure from Mr. Trump did not deter new expressions of resistance on Sunday: Gov. Bill Haslam of Tennessee, a former chairman of the Republican Governors Association, announced he would not vote for Mr. Trump. So did multiple members of Congress, including Representative Kay Granger of Texas, the lone woman in the state’s large Republican delegation.
mobile.nytimes.com/2016/10/10/…

For all the #NeverTrump supporters who have been softening over the past few weeks, rationalizing why they must fall into line behind someone they know is irresponsible, and all the reluctant Republicans who feel that they have no political choice but to support their party’s nominee, remember what John F. Kennedy once said: “sometimes party loyalty asks too much.” 
www.thedailybeast.com/articles…

Trump was never tried or sued, so we'll never know if he is guilty of raping his wife. But the way Trump and his legal team reacted to the allegations tells us they do not believe the law applies to him. We didn't need tape of Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women to know that he is an unrepentant bully and batterer.
www.rollingstone.com/politics/…

The Republican National Committee’s official rules of the party lay groundwork for selecting a replacement nominee in specific circumstances: “all vacancies which may occur by reason of death, declination, or otherwise.” For existing votes to transfer to a new nominee? “It is an exercise of lawyers’ fantasies to imagine the litigation that would take place,” Benjamin Ginsberg, former national counsel for the Mitt Romney and George W. Bush campaigns, told the Times. “You would have to amass an army of lawyers and send them to each state.” 
deadspin.com/what-happens-if-d…

"This sentence only empowers the RNC to fill vacancies, not create them," he said, suggesting that the removal of a candidate by a court would fit the description. "The power to create a vacancy is a separate and independent power from the power to fill vacancies and that power would have to be conferred on the RNC by a specific rule, which does not exist.
www.politico.com/story/2016/10…

If Mr. Trump dropped out of the race, the Republican National Committee would have to race against the clock to find a replacement that members could agree upon. The rules committee would scramble to determine who would be eligible to be nominated and how such a nomination would proceed. The 168 committee members representing state delegations would have to hold a vote and, as Mr. Trump did at the convention in Cleveland, the new nominee would need to win at least 1,237 delegates to become the party’s standard-bearer.
mobile.nytimes.com/2016/10/09/…

Mark down the date: October 7, 2016, is when Donald Trump lost the presidency.
I’m usually reluctant to play the pundit-prediction game but Independent and Republican women aren’t going to bounce back from this one. Not when the GOP nominee is caught on tape talking about hitting on a married woman “with big phony tits” “like a bitch” and how part of his M.O. is “grabbing pussy” because “when you’re a star” “you can do anything.”
www.thedailybeast.com/articles…

Why this tape - and not the myriad other controversies that have dogged him in recent weeks? Powerful men using their position to get sex is nothing new, even in the White House. JFK and Bill Clinton paved that path. In the past Mr Trump has not been able to resist lashing out when he's under attack. So, whatever his advisers may caution, I suspect we will see more of that in St Louis on Sunday night.
www.bbc.com/news/election-us-2…

In another interview, from September 2004, Stern asks Trump if he can call Ivanka "a piece of ass," to which Trump responds in the affirmative.
"My daughter is beautiful, Ivanka," says Trump.
"By the way, your daughter," says Stern.
"She's beautiful," responds Trump.
"Can I say this? A piece of ass," Stern responds.
"Yeah," says Trump.
amp.cnn.com/cnn/2016/10/08/pol…

West Virginia Senate Democratic Party Chairwoman Belinda Biafore also issued a statement Saturday on the Trump scandal: “Donald Trump’s comments are unsettling and disturbing to say the least. His remarks are not only offensive, which sadly we've grown to expect, they describe unwarranted advances and assault toward women. “Just because we expect this type of behavior from Trump doesn't mean we should stand by and allow him to continue." 
wvpublic.org/post/capito-says-…

Then there was Washington State GOP Chairwoman Susan Hutchison. She told King 5 TV: "Donald Trump's comments in 2005 -- 11 years ago -- were made when he was a Democrat."

The closest one in modern American history is the removal of Democratic vice presidential nominee Thomas Eagleton in 1972. Eagleton accepted the Democratic nomination for VP at the party’s convention with presidential candidate George McGovern. After a history of depression, hospitalization and electric shock therapy emerged, party officials determined he posed too much of risk in the White House. Eagleton was forced to relinquish the nomination just 18 days later. Since it occurred long before any filing deadlines, McGovern named a new running mate, Peace Corps Director Sargent Shriver, later confirmed by Democratic party officials. The duo lost the popular vote by the largest margin in US presidential history.

Now, if 270 or more electors cast their official votes for Hillary Clinton, as is becoming increasingly more likely, the GOP is out of luck. She will become the president-elect on January 6 under the explicit words of the Twelfth Amendment: “the person having the greatest number of votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of electors appointed.”

This is hardly the first time there has been unexpected drama in the weeks before Election Day: The Suez Crisis in 1956. The arrest of Martin Luther King Jr. at an Atlanta sit-in in 1960. President Johnson's announcement of Vietnamese peace talks in 1968. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger telling reporters at the White House that "peace is at hand" in Vietnam in 1972. President Carter rushing back to Washington from a late campaign swing in 1980 amid hopes that the Iranian hostages were about to be released.

Consider a sampling of the merchandise on display at the Republican National Convention, as reported by Peter Beinart in this month's Atlantic: Pins that read, "Don't be a pussy. Vote for Trump in 2016" and "Trump 2016: Finally someone with balls" as well as T-shirts with slogans like "Trump that bitch" and "Hillary sucks but not like Monica."

But Trump Tower, since Friday afternoon, has become a kind of lonely fortress for its most famous occupant, who holes up inside, increasingly isolated and upset, denounced almost every hour by another Republican official.
mobile.nytimes.com/2016/10/10/…

The timing couldn't possibly be worse for Trump -- or the Republican party. The presidential election is a month away. Early voting has already begun in a number of states. There is simply no way to remove Trump from the ballot unless he steps aside — and there is no evidence that he would even consider doing so. And history suggests that events this close to an election — when even the casual voter is paying attention — tend to matter much more than things that might have happened a year or even six months ago.
www.washingtonpost.com/news/th…

The scenario is a bit far-fetched—it’s been aptly referred to elsewhere as a “Hail Mary” plan. But if there’s anything we’ve learned from this election, it’s not to discount the improbable. And if Trump’s prospects look so dim that Republicans think the party has zero shot at reaching 270 electoral votes by standing behind him as their nominee, they might decide that they have at least a better-than-zero shot by throwing that Hail Mary.

In every election since 1976 save two, white women have voted for the Republican in a presidential campaign. In every election since 1984, women have comprised more of the electorate than men. While women overall have backed the Democrat since 1988, white women have been an increasingly important part of Republican presidential strength in recent years.

In one exchange with Mrs. Clinton, the Republican candidate said: “Maybe there is no hacking. But they always blame Russia,” he said, as part of an effort to “tarnish me.”

Friday’s barrage of allegations from Washington—coupled with angry denials from Moscow—marked a descent to yet another low point in increasingly poor relations between the former Cold War foes, who are deeply divided over key international issues of war and peace and appear on a path of one-upsmanship perhaps not seen since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Raad al-Hussein cited Mr Trump's comments on the use of torture and his attitude to "vulnerable communities". Mr Hussein said at a news briefing in Geneva: "If Donald Trump is elected on the basis of what he has said already - and unless that changes - I think it is without any doubt that he would be dangerous from an international point of view."

The tension that has simmered in the Republican Party for years -- shutting down the government and nearly bringing the nation to default -- escalated into an outright civil war Tuesday. The conflict not only threatens the party's ability to make any realistic attempt at reclaiming the White House next month, but also previews the conflicts and divides that could consume the GOP for years to come if Trump loses.

The Trump train is crashing and burning quickly after the release last Friday of a tape in which the GOP nominee is heard bragging about sexual assault. Now, some of his top donors want their money back — because nothing he’s said along the campaign trail was bad enough until now. One donor asked for a refund, citing the release of the sexually vulgar tape. They wrote in an email, “I cannot express my disappointment enough regarding the recent events surrounding Mr. Trump.” The email also read, “As a father of two daughters preparing for marriage, I am repulsed by his comments regarding women.” Another top donor had similar grievances over the recent leaked tape and wrote, “I can not [sic] support a sexist man. I have three young children and will not support a crude sexist man. I expect a refund of my donation. Please process immediately and I thank you for your help.”

Seeking guidance in Scripture, they found a Bible abounding in useful scoundrels. One participant on the call noted that Jesus had befriended tax collectors and sinners. Another invoked the Old Testament figure Nehemiah, who served a pagan king, Cyrus of Persia, but leveraged the relationship to accomplish the holy mission of rebuilding the ancient walls of Jerusalem. Even an imperfect ruler might be the means to a righteous end.

“You are the person who put these people in this position,” Borges said he told Trump, describing himself as “pissed off.” “You did that. Not them. These are your words. You need to own that.” Yet on Tuesday, in the culmination of a four-day horror show, Trump was back at it, going nuclear on those who abandoned him over the tape. He tweeted that “the shackles have been taken off me” and warned that “Disloyal R’s are far more difficult than Crooked Hillary.”

Something is just not quite adding up about how that lewd and disgusting Trump tape came to light, and NBC’s role in all of this. Over the past few days, I’ve been trying to understand, how it is possible that NBC got beat on their own big 2o16 election scoop. NBC sources told CNN’s Brian Stelter that a producer discovered the tape just last week. NBC lawyers were reportedly “vetting”the tape when it was somehow leaked to The Washington Post.  But, here’s the strange part. According to Page Six, Billy Bush “brazenly bragged” to NBC staff about the disturbing ‘Pussy Grab’ tape while covering the Olympics in Rio. Did somebody at NBC drop the ball? Or maybe, they knew about it, and were sitting on the story until closer to the election for maximum impact?

It is a startling attack. Essentially the Republican candidate has declared open warfare on the party that put him in place to challenge for the leadership. Or to look at another way, he is locked in a battle with the people who would help him to govern if he were to win. It is a risky strategy for Trump. Many of his supporters will delight in his attacks and share his view of Paul Ryan. They have a low view of elected politicians anyway. But Trump is running a bare bones campaign. His get-out-the-vote operation is essentially the Republican get-out-the-vote campaign. If they cut money and support, he is doomed.

Addressing a campaign rally in Greensboro, North Carolina, on Tuesday evening, Mr Obama referred to Mr Trump's crude remarks about women, saying: "Now you find a situation in which the guy says stuff that nobody would find tolerable if they were applying for a job at 7-Eleven."

Dear (insert member of the electoral college in your state here),
I’m writing to you to ask you not cast your vote for Donald Trump in case he wins the majority vote in the upcoming 2016 election. Below is an example quote from a newspaper as well as a multitude of quotes that justifies my discomfort for Donald Trump as a candidate for president. I feel that there is nothing more I can say that hasn’t already been said in these quotes below that prove that he is unfit to be in the white house. Thank you for your time.

-(your name here)


"Though Trump has repeatedly expressed admiration for presidents such as George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Ronald Reagan — all must-names for preferred presidents as a Republican candidate — it's his inclusion of a fourth name that helps clear up any debate over his favorite: Dwight Eisenhower."

"This wouldn't be Putin's first display of political illiteracy. In a January interview with the German tabloid Bild, Putin questioned the journalists: "Do you know there were two instances in American history when the president was voted in by an electoral college majority despite gaining a minority of the popular vote?" There were, in fact, four such cases, as the Russian press hastened to point out -- but Putin evidently didn't read the rebuttals, because in at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum in June, he talked again about two instances... Fedor Lukyuanov, one of the most insightful commentators on Russian foreign policy, recently described Putin as a "fatalist" who "proceeds from a belief that someone else is running the show -- God, for example -- and we are just little mortals and all we can do is be quick, precise and effective about using the opportunities that open to us." That would fit with Putin's relative lack of interest in, and knowledge of, the U.S. electoral process."

"The Twenty-Third Amendment gave the District of Columbia three electoral votes since they have no Senators and Representatives... Despite the example given above, it is very rare for a president to win the popular vote yet lose the election. As we have stated, this has only happened four times in US History, and only once in the last 100 years."

Donald Trump Quotes:

"Sometimes, in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don't choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that. And believe it or not, I regret it. And I do regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues," Trump told supporters here. He added: "But one thing I can promise you is this: I will always tell you the truth."

"Yes, the man who once feuded with the pope (how soon we forget that actually happened) is cratering among Catholics... “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian," the pope said in February when asked about Trump’s border wall."

"It's very hard to find someone to mimic the reckless temperament and the hateful instincts and divisive instincts of Donald Trumps," Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said Sunday on CNN's 'State of the Union'."

"I've traveled all across this country laying out my bold and modern agenda for change. In this journey, I will never lie to you. I will never tell you something I do not believe. I will never put anyone's interests ahead of yours... So while sometimes I can be too honest, Hillary Clinton is the opposite: She never tells the truth. One lie after another, and getting worse each passing day." www.thedailybeast.com/cheats/2…

"To Whom It May Concern: Trump is sorry. Trump is humble. Trump is scared. Trump doesn't want to get crushed."

"As you know, I am not a politician. I have worked in business, creating jobs and rebuilding neighborhoods my entire adult life. I've never wanted to learn the language of the insiders, and I've never been politically correct- it takes far too much time, and can often make more difficult... Sometimes in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don't choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that, and I regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these sissies."

"'The establishment media doesn't cover what really matters in the country, or what's really going on in people's lives,' he said during a rally in North Carolina on Thursday. 'They will take words of mine out of context and spend a week obsessing over every single syllable, and then pretend to discover some hidden meaning in what I said.'"  

"McMullin said that it's 'unclear' whether Trump 'will make it through this campaign.'... 'He's taken some desperate measure with firing his campaign manager and hiring another one, wild swings in his policy positioning,' he said 'I mean he's desperate.' ... 'I'm hearing from people inside his campaign that there are times now when he hides in his apartment and doesn't meet with any people,' he continued. 'When he campaigns he goes out to a place he has to fly back home to New York. This is a fragile man and a fragile campaign and I'm not quite sure what's going to happen in the days and weeks ahead of him. I'm not sure the [Republican National Committee] can continue to support him gien his weakness as a man and as a politician and as a condidate for the presidency.'...McMullin previously worked as a CIA operative and a policy director for the House Republican Conference."

'It's about all the people in this country who don't have a voice. I am running to be their voice.' He added, 'There's a reason the hedge-fund managers, the financial lobbyists, the Wall Street investors are throwing their money at Hillary Clinton.

"Former Central Intelligence Agency Director Michael Hayden... 'A candidate used the intelligence professionals who were briefing him in an absolutely non-political setting, he imputed to them views that were politically useful to him in the moment,' he told Politico." 
www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/3732326…

"Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Col. Steve Ganyard said Donald Trump’s comments about his classified intelligence briefing this week troubled some in the intelligence community, saying, “Our friends in the intelligence community were quite upset to hear that sort of talk.” “I think if there was any discomfort, it was not signaling any personal preference or policy. It was more because they understood that what they were saying might be used against them in a way that was untrue,” he said, in response to Trump’s claim that his briefers’ body language revealed their frustration with President Barack Obama’s leadership... While the FBI decided not to indict Clinton over the email scandal, Ganyard said that in the military, “it can generally be a career ender to divulge classified information or mishandle it.” But more than anything, he said, he is distressed over “the military being pulled into a very politicized, bitterly politicized, campaign” and urged the military to “rise above partisan politics.”

"Trump's longtime political ally, Roger Stone, insisted in 2014 that Clinton would not run for president "for health reasons"... 'What [Trump] and his enablers are doing and have succeeded in doing is to delegitimize the media altogether, and that is important to him because that inoculates him against legitimate fact-checking and against legitimate investigations of his record,; Sykes said."

"By not specifying what he is sorry for, Trump apologizes for everything and nothing at the same time. The candidate has insulted so many people since launching his campaign last year that it's impossible to say who he has in mind when he speaks of regret. Think of it this way: Given its vagueness, who among the offended could claim Trump's apology as their own?" 
www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/b…

"Most of the statements Trump has made that got him into trouble didn't come from the heat of debate; they were at rallies (mocking a disabled reporter), during speeches (when he said Mexican immigrants were rapists) or during an interview (insulting Sen. John McCain). In many cases, he wasn't addressing a multitude of issues (like when he disparaged the mother of a Muslim soldier killed in Iraq)."

"Trump now continues to propagate the notion that vaccines cause autism in spite of convincing and widely cited evidence to the contrary.

"Nobody knows debt better than me. I've made a fortune by using debt and if things don't work out, I renegotiate the debt... If I do a deal in a corporation as an example and if the economy goes bad, I'll often times renegotiate that debt. But that's a different thing, that's just a corporate thing and other people like me, very big people in the world of business, they do that."

Former Mexican president Vicente Fox said Donald Trump is "a false prophet" in the model of 20th-century Latin American dictators and charged that the Republican presidential nominee was a messianic figure trying to dupe U.S. voters by playing to their fears and worst instincts.

"God says judge no man because you shall be judged," she said. "It's not about Democrat or Republican, it's about who has God's potential." Jackson was careful to remain neutral; neither he nor his church has endorsed a presidential candidate. "If we don't have love then we're not Christian," he said. Carol Thomas is a staunch Democrat who says that she's been offended by things that Trump has said, but she called Trump's visit "a smart move." "At least he can have somebody he can talk to, somebody that is on his level as far as economically, that he can see that all a black people are not so impoverished or we need so much help, because some people have arrived and helped themselves," she said." "You know he's the devil," one female protester shouted.

“What do you have to lose by trying something new, like Trump?” he asked an audience in Michigan last month. “You’re living in poverty. Your schools are no good. You have no jobs.

"According to the campaign, Pence had asked to stop at a McDonald's in rural Virginia so that he could use the bathroom, but aides grew concerned when the govenor failed to reappear after twenty minutes...

"It is of great concern that the Republican nominee for President has advocated U.S. withdrawal from the Paris Accord. A 'Parexit' would send a clear signal to the rest of the world: 'The United States does not care about the global problems of human-caused climate change. You are on your own,'" the group wrote on the website responsiblescientists.org. They continued, "The consequences of opting out of the global community would be severe and long-lasting -- for our planet's climate and for the international credibility of the United States." Republican nominee Donald Trump opposes the agreement, and he has previously suggested that climate change is a hoax "created by and for the Chinese." He recently said in an interview that "I am not a great believer in man-made climate change."

"'I put lipstick on a pig," he said. 'I feel a deep sense of remorse that I contributed to presenting Trump in a way that brought him wider attention and made him more appealing than he is.' He went on, 'I genuinely believe that if Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes there is an excellent possibility it will lead to the end of civilations.'... If he were writing 'The Art of the Deal' today, Schwartz said, it would be a very difficult book with a very differnet title. Asked what he would call it, he answered, 'The Sociopath."... 'I was shocked," Schwartz told me. 'Trump didn't fit any model of a human being I'd ever met. He was obsessed with publicity, and he didn't care what you wrote.' He went on, 'Trump only takes two positions. Either you're a scummy loser, liar, whatever, or you're the greatest. I became the greatest. He wanted to be seen as a tough guy and he loved being on the cover.'" 
"Trump hand been forthcoming with him during the New York interview, but it hadn't required much time or deep reflection. For the book, though, Trump needed to provide him with sustained, thoughtful recollections. He asked Trump to describe his childhood in detail. After sitting for only a few minutes in his suit and tie, Trump became impatient and irritable. He looked fidgety, Schwatz recalls, 'like a kinderartener who can't sit still in a classroom.' Even when Schwartz pressed him, Trump seemed to remember almost nothing of his youth, and made it clear that he was bored. Far more quickly than Schwartz had expected, Trump ended the meeting."
"But Schartz believes that Trump's short attention span has left him with 'a stunning level of superficial knowledge and plain ignorance.' He said, 'That's why he so prefers TV as his first news source- information comes in easily digestible sound bites' He added, 'I seriously doubt that Trump has ever read a book straight throughout his adult life.' During the eighteen months that he observed Trump, Schwartz said, he never saw a book on Trump's desk, or elsewhere in his office, or in his apartment." 
"Trump's first wife, Ivana ,famously claimed that Trump kept a copy of Adolf Hitler's collected speeches, 'My New Order,' in a cabinet beside his bed. In 1990, Trump's friend Marty Davis, who was then an executive at Paramount, added credence to this story, telling Marie Brenner, of Vanity Fair, that he had given Trump the book. 'I thought he would find it interesting' Davis told her. When Brenner asked Trump about it, however, he mistakenly identified the volume as a different work by Hitler: "Mien Kampf." Apparently, he ha not so much as read the title. 'If I had these speeches, and I am not saying that I do, I would never read them,' Trump told Brenner."  
"Trump again grew impatient. Long before lunch on Saturday, Schwartz recalls, Trump 'essentially threw a fit.' He stood up and announced that he couldn't stand any more questions." 
"Lying is second nature to him," Schwartz said. 'More than anyone else I have ever met, Trump has the ability to convince himself that whatever he is saying at any given moment is true, or some sort of true, or at least ought to be true.'"
"'I created a character far more winning than Trump actually is. The first line of the book is an example. 'I've got enough, much more than I'll ever need. I do it to do it.  “Other people paint beautifully on a canvas or write wonderful poetry. I like making deals, preferably big deals. That's how I get my kicks.'"

Donald Trump’s Politics:

Donald Trump has made it clear he will nominate Peter Thiel to the Supreme Court if he wins the presidency, Thiel has told friends, according to a source close to the PayPal co-founder.

"Donald Trump may boast to the world, as he did in his Republican National Convention speech, that “I alone can fix it,” but deep down, countless other politicians believe the very same thing about themselves. In some ways, a megalomaniacal billionaire like Trump merely represents a more advanced case of someone with excessive self-confidence, one that lays bare the architecture of the ego-addled brain in 140-character bursts of narcissistic bombast... Take Theodore Roosevelt: A hyper-energetic, freakishly industrious man of action and adventurer who wrote roughly 40 books and penned letters as if they were tweets (more than 150,000 in total). Roosevelt — not unlike Trump — turned his robust egotism into a personal brand that became larger than life. This kind of extreme self-esteem can morph into an irrational confidence in one’s own abilities when exposed to the pull of power. A prideful leader starts to believe he really can change the world, that he knows what is best for others and that normal laws and mores no longer apply to his self-ordained quest."

"Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he’ll label China a currency manipulator if he’s in the White House. He’s a little late... In fact, over the last two years, Beijing burned through nearly a quarter of what was once a $4 trillion currency stockpile to prevent the yuan from falling against the dollar... One of Mr. Trump’s solutions is to slap China and other offending countries with hard-hitting tariffs on imports. But that, warn many economists and former trade officials, could start a dangerous tit-for-tat trade war that only harms the broader U.S. economy."

Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce former C.I.A. Director Robert Gates and his longtime nemesis and former K.G.B. agent, President Vladimir Putin of Russia. Putin is voting Trump. Gates is not."

Donald Trump Click Bait Quotes:

DONALD TRUMP JR.’S tweet comparing Syrian refugees to Skittles has deep roots. The concept dates back to at least 1938 and a children’s book called “Der Giftpilz,” or “The Toadstool,” in which a mother explains to her son that it only takes one Jew to destroy an entire people.

Trump’s tweet has clear parallels to Streicher’s children’s book, where a boy named Franz learns about the Jews from his mother:
“However they disguise themselves, or however friendly they try to be, affirming a thousand times their good intentions to us, one must not believe them. Jews they are and Jews they remain. For our Volk they are poison.”
“Like the poisonous mushroom!” says Franz.
“Yes, my child! Just as a single poisonous mushrooms can kill a whole family, so a solitary Jew can destroy a whole village, a whole city, even an entire Volk [nation].”

"Without the media, this wouldn't even be a contest, but the media has built her up, they've let her slide on every discrepancy, on every lie, on every DNC game, trying to get Bernie Sanders out of the thing," Trump said. "If Republicans were doing that, they'd be warming up the gas chamber right now,” the nominee’s son added… "Don Jr. was clearly referring to capital punishment to make the case that the media continues to take words out of context in order to serve as the propaganda arm of the Hillary Clinton campaign," Trump spokesman Jason Miller said in an email.”

Donald Trump Dirt

"The central issue for many was whether Trump was engaged in a tactic known as "greenmailing". It was an entirely legal stragety repeatedly deployed by activist investors throughout the 1980s-- a practice that, for lack of a better description, amounts to a corporate ransom payment. It works like this: An investor quietly buys up a significant amount of a targeted company's stock and threatens a takeover attempt. The company, in an effort to make the investor just go away, makes a deal to buy that stock back at premium. The investor nets the difference... Trump, in his testimony in front of the casino commission put it like this: "I just felt instinctively-- when I do research on things, they never work out well... Asked if he considreed himself a greenmailer, Trump demured: "I would rather say I sold my stock back to the company as opposed to greenmail, if I could do that. I'm not sure. I hate to refer to myself as a greenmailer."

Trump had promised this gift during a taping of "The Celebrity Apprentice," when contestant Dayana Mendoza — a former Miss Universe — had chosen the Latino Commission on AIDS to receive her winnings. At one moment, Trump promised $10,000 each to the charities of six contestants, including Mendoza… On Tuesday, Chacon said a junior staffer had simply missed the gift during that first search, which was made more difficult because the records were a few years old. On Tuesday, he said he asked a senior staffer to look again. She found it.

The Republican presidential nominee has previously said that he won’t release his tax returns until an audit is complete, despite the fact the IRS has said that an audit does not preclude the returns from going public.
But on Wednesday, Trump Jr. told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that New York billionaire's massive tax return would raise too many questions. “Because he's got a 12,000-page tax return that would create … financial auditors out of every person in the country asking questions that would detract from (his father's) main message,” Trump Jr. explained when asked why his father is not following the tradition followed by previous presidential candidates who release their returns.
Trump’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, has released his returns, as have Hillary Clinton and her running mate, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine.

Donald Trump ways he can still win

“The U.S. presidential contest should be a "change" election, which ordinarily would work to the advantage of the Republican candidate in the last eight weeks. In 1980, Ronald Reagan surged at the end, demonstrating that he was up to the job. It's doubtful Trump has that capacity, so he needs a silent vote to offset his high negatives.”

"Losing in November would be the best thing that could happen, from a business standpoint," said Jon Klein, former president of CNN's U.S. operations.

Donald on Hillary’s health

"Well, I was in Flint yesterday, and it was a very interesting experience and got unbelievably good treatment from people, I must say, and even in that audience, the treatment was great. But something was up because I noticed she was so nervous when she introduced me," Trump said in a telephone interview with "Fox & Friends," saying that Bethel United Methodist Church pastor Faith Green Timmons "was so nervous, she was shaking" when she introduced him for his speech… "I mean, everyone plays their games. It doesn't bother me,” he said about her decision to interrupt him when Trump started attacking Hillary Clinton from the front of the church… "You think this is easy? In this beautiful room that is 122 degrees," Trump said, although the arena was notably chillier than his usual venues. "It is hot and it is always hot when I perform, because the crowds are so big, these rooms were not designed for this kind of crowd.” "I don't know, folks, do you think Hillary could stand up here for an hour?" he asked… The candidate was not asked, however, whether the same logic applied to the release of his tax returns, for which Vice News filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the IRS earlier this week, demanding to see all documents dating back to 2002. Trump has said that he will not release any returns while they are under audit, as all documents from 2009 onward are, according to the campaign.”

“Trump, who attended the same event marking the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, was noticeably restrained. Asked by a reporter about Clinton’s health incident, Trump said, “I don’t know anything.””

"He was using that as an example of what she would get away with, by the media," Conway said. She then added that Clinton "treats the media like second-class citizens."

"I hope she gets well soon. I don't know what's going on. I'm like you. I just see what I see -- the coughing fit was a week ago, so I assume that was pneumonia also," Trump said Monday on Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "So something is going on, but i just hope she gets well and gets back on the trail, and we'll be seeing her at the debate."

Donald Trump Cryptic/Call Out Quotes:

“More than 50 major national security leaders are calling on Donald Trump to disclose all of his business partners and investments overseas and to divest himself of his overseas business interests if he wins the White House.
“We are calling on Mr. Trump to disclose, in full, the nature of his business relationships overseas -- to include specifically who his business partners are and what and where are his foreign investments,” said the letter, obtained by CBS News.”
In a statement, Trump’s senior communications adviser Jason Miller said that the letter loses credibility because it’s signed by Sherman, who helped negotiate the nuclear deal with Iran. He didn’t respond to the overall requests.
“If Wendy Sherman is the definition of who is considered a reliable government official, this letter and its signatories lose all credibility,” he said. “Based on her complete failure in representing American foreign policy and deep ties to Secretary Clinton, this letter epitomizes the rigged system in Washington that has continued to fail Americans over and over again.”

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump appeared to brush off the controversy surrounding former Secretary of State Colin Powell’s leaked emails in which Powell describes Trump as a “national disgrace” and suggests the party is “crashing and burning.”
Trump wrote in a Twitter message late Wednesday, "I was never a fan of Colin Powell after his weak understanding of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq = disaster. We can do much better!" Powell’s email messages were leaked earlier by the website DCLeaks.com, which is believed to have ties to notorious hacker Guccifer 2.0. The leak was first reported by Buzzfeed News. A spokesperson for Powell confirmed to Fox News that they were his emails and that he had been hacked. In the emails, Powell admits to staying relatively quiet during Trump’s meteoric rise. "To go on and call him an idiot just emboldens him," Powell said. To a former aide he writes, "No need to debate it with you now, but Trump is a national disgrace and an international pariah."

The grass ain’t green on the other side

I’ve seen it with my very own eyes

I hate to be the bearer of bad news

But they gave me an offer I couldn’t refuse

I need to know the truth

It makes me feel so good

When I satisfy my curiosity

The grass ain’t green on the other side

I hope one day I don’t have to hide

My true nature

But you already know

I’m waiting for you

The grass ain’t greener on the other side

I’m looking for live in Japan

The land of the Morning Sun

Leaving my past behind

While carrying a heavy heart

I’m a westerner outsider

Trying to a find a place

Where I don’t have to feel alone

I’m looking for love in Japan 

Taking a leap of faith 

Hoping that I can 

Clear up some mental space

All that I ask for return

Is a place I can call my home

Where I don’t have to feel alone

I’m looking for love in Japan

The land of the Samurai 

A gaze as strong as a blade

That pierces through my heavy heart

I hope to ease my burden 

And rest my tired wings 

Where I don’t have to feel alone
