6 Crazy Things We Know About Donald Trump Thanks To Marla Maples (VIDEO)
Rants / December 21, 2016

It’s been 15 years since Marla Maples and Donald Trump divorced. After years of threatening to run for president, Donald Trump has now clinched the position of our president-elect. Crazy Thing #1 – As Long As He’s Famous, Your Association With Him Will Make You Famous As soon as he jumped in, Maples was bombarded with questions about her ex-husband and his decision to run. In March of this year, Marla Maples told Us Weekly: “It’s been a crazy six months for me. I’ve had people constantly coming to me wanting my opinion about the presidential race, and I’ve maintained a lot of privacy.” Perhaps watching her ex-husband run for president and hearing her name associated with his again has got Maples itching to find her rightful place in the spotlight. At the time Maples gave the interview to Us Weekly, she also booked a gig with ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. At 52 she’s still beautiful and extremely fit. Here’s what she says of her impending dance competition: “this is an opportunity (for me) to really be seen in my own light.” This seems a critically timed move by someone who was so intimately and publicly connected to Donald Trump….

What Donald Trump Can Learn From Sarah Palin (VIDEO)
Rants / December 17, 2016

Whether you’re a Democrat, Republican or anything in between and you were around during the 2008 presidential election, you’ll remember when John McCain named Sarah Palin as his VP running mate. I’m no Republican, but I was just as energized about the choice as any GOP supporter was at the time. Here was this young woman in her 40s, a very attractive, outdoorsy Governor of Alaska with a large family. Not only had Sarah Palin just been swept onto the national political stage, but she did it with her own newborn in tow! Her appointment didn’t make me want to vote conservative. However, as a woman I was thrilled and excited for Palin. I was impressed with Senator John McCain for choosing such an unlikely and truly innovative running mate. McCain became my secret feminist hero. As excitement mounted and the press did their vetting of this remote governor we became more and more fascinated. Until she began to… talk. Some of what she said didn’t seem to make any sense. Some of it was pure gold. For example, this quote from her acceptance speech at the RNC in 2008: “Our nominee for president (McCain) is a true profile in courage, and…

Think You Know Why The Electoral College Exists? – You’re Wrong (VIDEO)
Rants / December 17, 2016

Think You Know Why The Electoral College Exists? – You’re Wrong If you’re anything like millions of Americans, you thought the Electoral College was created to even out the disparity in population between the coasts and rural areas during political campaigns. It turns out we were wrong. In fact, we weren’t even close. The Electoral College was in fact created for the exact situation we find ourselves in now. With a president who is considered temperamentally unfit for the office. Federalist Paper No.68 & The Electoral College Federalist Paper No. 68 is an appeal to the public and the Congress to create an adaptation to the popular voting system. For an overview, The Federalist Papers were described this way: “The Federalist Papers were a series of eighty-five essays urging the citizens of New York to ratify the new United States Constitution. Written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay, the essays originally appeared anonymously in New York newspapers in 1787 and 1788 under the pen name “Publius.” The Federalist Papers are considered one of the most important sources for interpreting and understanding the original intent of the Constitution.” Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay wrote the majority of the letters, though…

Obama Forges His Legacy Overseas As Trump Sets Up A Chaotic Cabinet (VIDEO)
Rants / December 8, 2016

Obama Forges His Legacy Overseas As Trump Sets Up A Chaotic Cabinet Man, I’m gonna miss this guy… President Obama is in the last months of his presidency. He’s taking this time to cement his legacy throughout the world. By all accounts, Obama’s presidency has been scandal free. Certainly no personal dramas. Even his policies have not been controversial so much as (perhaps) incomplete, which Congress is partially responsible for. Now that President-elect Donald Trump has blundered his way into the White House the contrast in diplomatic styles is monumental. The Orange Menace has implied that he himself would be a much better Commander-in-Chief and foreign policy negotiator. Ugh. One of the (many) things which makes President Obama so fabulous is his willingness to reach out to forgotten countries around the world. This year, he made a stop to the poverty ridden country of Laos. That is a FIRST for any U.S. president. Obama traveled to Indonesia as a boy and understands Buddhist philosophies. He visited several centuries-old temples in the region. At a town hall meeting in the northern Laos city of Luang Prabang, the president spoke to the Laotian people about the benefits of a multicultural society. He scolded Americans for…

Fat Tony Salerno, Donald Trump And Mob Connections
Rants / November 16, 2016

David Cay Johnston of Politico and Wayne Barret, author of Trump: The Deals and the Downfall, are two investigative reporters who’ve been studying Donald Trump’s business dealings off and on for the last 27 years. They say, without a doubt, there is much evidence to connect Fat Tony Salerno, Donald Trump, and mob connections. Living in New York City I’ve lived in the NYC area for nearly 15 years. I can promise you this; there is not a building you enter, a meal you eat or a cab ride you take in this city that has not in some way, been touched by undocumented labor. This includes Americans who work under the table. I’ve worked in restaurants where out of nearly two dozen employees, there were less than a hand full of Americans. That includes the kitchen staff and managers. I’ve had clients in my business, many of whom work in or own a company in the construction industry, who’ve declared there isn’t a building in the NYC area that goes up without someone getting paid on the sly. Including (and especially) undocumented, out-of-the-country labor. And yes, a few have mob connections. Trump And His Books Donald Trump has written a number of books…
