Trump Files With FEC For 2020 Election Bid, Outmaneuvers Nonprofit Organizations

Image result for trump files for reelectiondocument from the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) indicates that Donald Trump took steps last week to outmaneuver nonprofit organizations, leaving them unable to officially campaign against him over the next few years of his Presidency.

Filed on January 20th, 2017, the letter states that, while not an official announcement for reelection, Donald Trump has filed an FEC Form 2 in order to “ensure compliance with the Federal Election Campaign Act.” This is an unprecedented, although legal, move for the President to make. Barack Obama did not file for his 2012 re-election bid until April 2011. Having filed (even if not formally announcing a bid) as a candidate, Trump would be able to coordinate with PACs and other similar organizations.

More importantly, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations would no longer be able to engage in “political speech” which could theoretically affect the results of the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election without running the risk of losing their nonprofit status. The move effectively bars interest groups from creating nonprofits which they could funnel money into for the purposes of opposing Trump’s initiatives. This will likely create chaos for political opponents of Trump such as George Soros, who has sunk significant amounts of money into various nonprofit groups with the intent of opposing Trump’s government. How 501(c)(3) organizations will comply with the FEC’s regulations when participating an actions which qualify as political speech remains to be seen.

There is an immediate need for pressure on the Dems to participate in running the government INSTEAD of destroying it with obstruction. Public pressure now!

PRESIDENT Trump plays three-dimensional chess, while the others (Dems, etc.) play on a flat board. 

I think you mean checkers.

They really don't stand a chance, do they?

He's taken the high ground, smart.
That's what a good business man does. Stay two steps ahead of the game.

Draing the Swamp should include draing the George Soros organization!

This guy is amazing!
Like we found out with our government during the last 100 years, politics has unintended consequences.
The unintended consequences of American politics is . . .
President Trump.

Trump vs soros. Trump will/must win.

What I love about our President is that he is slick...I mean, you don't become a multi-billionaire global real estate magnate with more than 500 companies by sitting on your haunches! He knows what he"s doing and it"s destroying democrats as he keeps one or more steps ahead of them!

We are entering the era of Trump. Don't forget that we have Iwanka, Eric, Don Jr., Kushner, and others in the wings who can take over in 2024 and beyond. America has finally risen and we have great leaders who will rule the nation for generations to come as long as Trump destroys the opposition and any dissent.

I don't get it.  

Does this mean churches cannot have free speech, as Trump is to destroy that Johnson EO that took free speech from churches - but this sounds as if it puts that policy back on.

I just don't get why this exists or what it actually does. I don't get the purpose of it.

Pay-Back !!! Pedophile Who Assaulted Nearly 200 Kids Stabbed To Death In Prison

A convicted pedophile who abused almost 200 children was stabbed to death in North Yorkshire, England, on Sunday.

Richard Huckle, 33, from Ashford, Kent, was given 22 life sentences in 2016 after he admitted to sexually abusing 71 kids whose ages ranged from six months to 12 years between 2006 and 2014, according to the BBC.

The report said Huckle was attacked with a makeshift knife while inside his cell at the Full Sutton Prison.

At the pedophile’s trial in 2016, investigators said they found over 20,000 indecent photos and videos of his assaults, which were shared with other pedophiles via a site on the dark web called The Love Zone.

Reports said that prior to his arrest, Huckle posed as an English teacher and Christian volunteer worker in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he groomed impoverished children.

In one of his online posts, Huckle reportedly wrote “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”

Reports said he attempted to make money from his crimes by crowdfunding the release of the photos.

“Huckle also created a 60-page ‘how-to’ guide for other pedophiles seeking to evade being caught, and kept a scorecard and points system regarding the children who were abused — leading investigators to speculate he may have as many as 200 victims,” a Fox News report stated.

At his sentencing in 2016, Judge Peter Rook condemned Huckle for his heinous crimes he said had become routine for the pedophile.

Rook commented:

Your offending behavior became entrenched in your everyday life. Your life revolved around your sexual activities with young children. Your distorted beliefs in respect of children are deep-seated. Your self-delusion knows no bounds. It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.

Reports said prior to his death, Huckle refused to cooperate with authorities when they tried to unlock a cache of encrypted files he had access to that may contain the names of victims and other pedophiles, according to Fox News.
