Donald Trump Says Gutting Social Security Is Morally Right

Donald Trump Says Gutting Social Security Is Morally Right

According to the person in the room, Trump said he would gut Social Security because like lying about his intent to steal Americans’ retirement savings; it was the morally upright thing to do. Trump told Ryan that,

“From a moral standpoint, I believe in it. But you also have to get elected. And there’s no way a Republican is going to beat a Democrat when the Republican is saying, ‘We’re going to cut your Social Security’ and the Democrat is saying, ‘We’re going to keep it and give you more.’ ”

At least Trump’s comment clearly delineates Republicans from Democrats on the issue of Social Security.

  Well, actually, one would have to break through the Fox Spews induced misinformation gripping seniors receiving benefits sitting around filling their Depends waiting for the Obama led ISIS attacks, and then convince them it's the Republicans who want to privatize Social Security. I don't know, can we do that between now and November?

The REAL story of Donald Trump's mother who climbed from penniless Scottish immigrant | Daily Mail Online

Contrary to Trump's well-told line, that his mother had traveled to America 'on holiday' and ended up never leaving, immigration documents seen by The National reveal that her true story was one of deliberate migration.
An uncomfortable truth perhaps, for the Republican's presumptive nominee whose campaign website declares: 'The influx of foreign workers holds down salaries, keeps unemployment high, and makes it difficult for poor and working-class Americans – including immigrants themselves and their children – to earn a middle-class wage.'
Now, the mystery that has previously clouded the story of Trump's mother's migration to America is made clear.

JUST IN: Former CIA Director Declares Donald Trump A Traitor To The United States (QUOTES)

It should be noted that Panetta is a Democrat and served under President Obama as the CIA director. However, Panetta isn’t the only member of the national security community to have concerns about Trump.

In May of this year, members of the Republican Party’s national security community penned an open letter warning about the dangers of a Trump presidency. The letter condemned the GOP nominee for, among other things, his lack of experience and defense of torture. It also warned of his close ties with dictators such as Vladimir Putin.

WATCH: Joe Biden knocked Donald Trump down a peg in DNCC speech

WATCH: Joe Biden knocked Donald Trump down a peg in DNCC speech

Vice President Joe Biden spent Wednesday at the Democratic National Convention explaining to the press how unqualified GOP nominee Donald Trump is to take the oath of the office of the president of the United States.

Like only Biden could, he perfectly explained one of the most critical qualities a president must have: a level head. Trump’s rash and impulsive temperament. Biden prefaced his comments saying that he doesn’t hold ill feelings toward Trump. However, “the truth is Donald Trump knows nothing about foreign policy, nor should he based on his background!” Biden explained. “The thing that bothers me is that I don’t see any attempt for him to go out and get people that really know on the Republican side.”

Loan officer gets fired for racist tweet about Michelle Obama | theGrio

Beautiful?? Seriously she is an ugly black b–tch,” Greenwood posted about the First Lady, and that was where it went downhill for the loan officer.

Because Greenwood uses her actual name on her Twitter account, some savvy social media users were able to track down her Facebook page, and from there, they figured out where she works. After that, Home Point Financial was mentioned in all sorts of tweets as the Twitterverse came out strong against Greenwood, asking Home Point Financial if they would continue to employ a racist in their ranks.

  

84 Month Sentence Vacated After Federal Judge Injects Personal Social Views, Grudge Over Change in “Old Neighborhood"

84 Month Sentence Vacated After Federal Judge Injects Personal Social Views, Grudge Over Change in “Old Neighborhood"

Judge Randa’s impartiality was shattered when he actually linked Robinson’s criminal conduct to a riot the city of Milwaukee endured in 1967.

The appeals court explained:

“The district judge also went too far when he suggested that Robinson’s crime was related somehow to events elsewhere in the country. The court discussed its belief that Milwaukee today is similar to Milwaukee in 1967, and drew questionable—and irrelevant—parallels between Milwaukee’s 1967 riots and recent protests in Baltimore over police brutality. He noted in particular some protests in Milwaukee over the Vietnam War in 1967 (12 years before Robinson was born)—protests that got in the way of his deployment to a combat zone. He wondered what would happen if something similar were to take place today, and he bemoaned the general lack of discipline, responsibility, and self-direction.

“Robinson was convicted of a drug-related crime. He was not charged with or convicted of any crime involving inciting a riot. Moreover, events in Milwaukee before he was born, or recent protests in other cities, are not relevant to Robinson’s sentence. And it is hard to know what the judge meant by ‘pathology’ of the neighborhood. A reference to deterrence or protection of the neighborhood would have been proper, but blaming Robinson indiscriminately for everything wrong in that neighborhood would not.”

Yes, Slaves Did Help Build the White House - The New York Times

WASHINGTON — When Michelle Obama said in her prime-time televised address to the Democratic National Convention on Monday night that the White House had been built by slaves, she was citing a little-discussed fact that dramatized her own African-American family’s place in history.

But the first lady’s assertion was met with derision and disbelief by some, who questioned whether it was true and said her choice to mention it amounted to an attempt to divide the country along racial lines.
