Donald Trump has an ace in the hole for dealing with attacks from his Republican rivals

donald trump jeb bushAfter Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) released a video criticizing real-estate magnate Donald Trump for h..., Trump had a familiar response at the ready.

"Recently, Rand Paul called me and asked me to play golf," Trump said in a statement. "I easily beat him on the golf course and will even more easily beat him now, in the world in the politics."

Then he added: "Senator Paul does not mention that after trouncing him in golf I made a significant donation to the eye center with which he is affiliated."

Republican candidates are learning the hard way that Donald Trump has an ace in the hole when they come after him.

For one thing, they have probably dealt with him in the past — and there's a good chance they have asked him for money.

Since announcing his presidential campaign earlier this summer, Trump has traded barbs with many of his GOP rivals over immigration, foreign policy, and his conservative credentials.

But rather than engaging with them in detailed policy debates, the real-estate magnate has instead revealed embarrassing anecdotes about his personal relationships with the candidates, providing a somewhat unprecedented level of transparency into the interactions between politicians and the superrich.

You think Judge Judy wouldn't be fair to men?

Well, I see the Troll is back! Triptolemus, your name can't pass my spell test, let alone my smell test!

Look at this:

Trump received millions for promoting this scam. Thousands of poor naïve people were scammed out of their savings. Trump's philosophy: If god did not want them sheared, he would not have made them sheep. We don't want this clown as president.


There are substantive issues being posted here

They are being hidden by your repetitive idiocy.

Your resources are so lame and vague.


There are issues with trump's character - well documented. You and Marilyn are trying to cover them up with bombast.

Oh riiiight.  Do you HEAR yourself?   Like I would have the capability to even do that???  OMG

Trip, Spoken like a true Liberal Socialist.

What man doesn't have character flaws... Obama certainly has many.  What we need is a man whose character is capable of embracing the issues with the force of will needed to bring about a favorable end to our political problems.

Trump's strong willed and opinionated posturing leaves no question as to his objectives... no political intrigue is necessary to understand where he stands on an issue.  That is what this nation needs right now,  a man with the fortitude to live his convictions; a man whose character has proven well, in negotiating with adverse parties.

We need a street fighter ... a man willing to buck the evil and entrenched political powers, who have proven intractable, using standard political negotiations and venues.  No, Trump's personality and Character may be exactly what America needs today... if we are to deal effectively with the criminal enterprise running our government.   Trumps book 'The Art of the Deal' spells out the reasons he may well be the man of the hour.

"What man doesn't have character flaws"???  You're not expecting an argument from any women here are ya'?   ;o)))))   Well frankly, Obama doesn't come under the heading of a "man" on my list, Michelle would come closer.  One of the big things I like about Trump.....he does away with all the politically correct CRAP.  I'm sick of all the "I'm offended", "racism", oh....that list could go on FOREVER.  It's out of control, and other countries are laughing their asses off at us. 

I agree, Marilyn. We have a 100% chance nothing will change with these other "career guys"....because nothing has changed. They can't even bring themselves to stand against Obama....they don't even understand how much power they have if they stood in unison. One man...Trump....has had the courage to call it like it really is.....maybe he can't do the things he has said....but.........we have a 50/50 chance he can. 100% down the tubes vs. 50/50% possibility.....who the hell wouldn't take those odds?





Rush Limbaugh Explains How Robert Mueller
Will Attempt To Financially Destroy President Trump

 Special Counsel Robert Mueller has crossed President Trump’s “red line” after issuing a subpoena for documents related to the Trump Organization’s business dealings with Russia.

New York Times reports:

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, has subpoenaed the Trump Organization to turn over documents, including some related to Russia, according to two people briefed on the matter. The order is the first known time that the special counsel demanded documents directly related to President Trump’s businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president. […] The Trump Organization has said that it never had real estate holdings in Russia, but witnesses recently interviewed by Mr. Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow. In 2015, a longtime business associate of Mr. Trump’s emailed Mr. Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen at his Trump Organization account claiming he had ties to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and said that building a Trump Tower in Moscow would help Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh theorized on his program Friday that one of Mueller’s true objectives is to financially destroy President Trump.

Partial transcript via Breitbart News:

And these requests, the subpoena for documents from the Trump Organization, I ask you again, what has that to do with the campaign and with collusion and with the Russians? They’ve already been looking into Trump business in Russia with the Miss, what is it, USA, whatever his pageant is.

Do you all remember during the early days of the campaign there was news that Trump, in a tax return something like 20 years ago, took a $900 million deduction that was granted and survived an audit by the IRS? Now, I forget the details. It had to do with losses that he had incurred in that year in building things. It was around 900 or $920 million deduction. I’ll never forget when it was reported because most people will never come close to ever having that in a lifetime, and to have a guy personally write that much off?

Anyway, I think Mueller wants that $920 million back. I think Mueller wants to prove that that was a faulty deduction. I think that they want to go back, they want to get Trump’s tax returns because they want to nullify that $900 million deduction, and then they want to collect 20 years of interest and penalties and wipe Trump out.

In the meantime, President Trump’s lawyers are in the process of negotiating with special counsel Robert Mueller to bring the Russia probe to an end, reports Rebecca Ballhaus and Peter Nicholas of the Wall Street Journal.

Mueller’s tentacles continue to reach further and further.

CNN reported that investigators are attempting to determine whether former Blackwater chief Erik Prince misled the  House Intelligence Committee about a meeting he had in Seychelles in January of 2017.

Prince is accused of using the meeting as an opportunity to establish a secret back channel with Russia.

Fox News’ Catherine Herridge spoke with one of President Trump’s personal lawyers about the new subpoena request by Special Counsel Mueller.

According to Herridge, Trump’s lawyer was unaware of the subpoena and said it may be a ‘wrap up’ subpoena or ‘clean up’ subpoena which may signal the end of the investigation.
