Trump's Mar a Loga

Trump had illegal Polish workers working on his Trump Tower and he didn't pay too.

“Donald told me he had difficulties.… " Sullivan testified, according to Time. "That he had some illegal Polish employees on the job."

Attorney Lewis Steel wrote to Manhattan Federal Judge Loretta Preska last week, stating former lawyer Wendy Sloan had uncovered the documents that could shed further light on a 1983 lawsuit filed by a Polish union worker that alleged then-real estate developer Trump had mistreated and even threatened to have Polish workers deported while they demolished the building that stood before his titular tower on New York’s Fifth Avenue, Trump Tower.

“She has the missing transcript and brief,” Steel wrote. “Ms. Sloan informs me that at all times these documents have remained in her possession and that she kept them confidential.”

Due to the workers’ complaints about their untimely or lack of pay, Trump asked Daniel Sullivan, a labor consultant for help.

Jefferson Beauregard Sessions

Jefferson Davis .... President of the CSA.

General P.T. Beauregard ... he wanted to destroy the United States of America by violence



Jefferson Beauregard Sessions once a year dresses up as a Confederate General to celebrate people who wanted to
keep the right of owning human beings as slaves and were willing to be traitors to the United States to that end.

OK who is helping N. Korea?

My guess is that it is the Russians. In both the size of the their bombs
and the complexity of their missiles they are getting "better" PDQ. BTW
I don't think it was a H-Bomb.

Harvey may have wrecked up to 1M cars / 30,000 to 40,000 homes destroyed in Houston area

Harvey may have wrecked up to 1M cars and trucks

Hurricane Harvey and its catastrophic aftermath likely destroyed more vehicles than any other natural disaster in U.S. history, according to several early estimates.

The storm may have ruined up to one million vehicles along the Texas Gulf Coast, according to automotive data firm Black Book. In the Houston area, about one in seven cars may have been destroyed, according to analysts from Evercore ISI, an investment banking advisory and research firm.

Harvey: Thousands await rescue as estimated 30,000 to 40,000 homes destroyed in Houston area

Thousands of people likely remain stranded, and an estimated 30,000 to 40,000 homes have been destroyed in the Houston area as Hurricane Harvey, now a tropical depression, continues to batter the Gulf Coast with torrential rains, flooding and strong winds, Harris County Judge Ed Emmett said.

Harvey made its third landfall, just west of Cameron, Louisiana, Wednesday at 4 a.m. CDT, with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph, according to the National Weather Service. As of 11 p.m. EDT, the slow-moving storm had picked up some speed, moving northeast at 9 mph, with its center was about 30 miles northeast of Alexandria, Louisiana.

The storm was starting to fall apart overnight, with rain scattered in nature and falling over Mississippi and Arkansas. Residents in western Tennessee, around Memphis, should expect heavy rains on Thursday morning and possible flash flooding as up to 8 inches of rain are possible locally.

Before that, it battered the Beaumont-Port Arthur area in southeastern Texas, dumping more than 2 feet of rain in some parts. By Wednesday evening, the storm had weakened from a tropical storm to a tropical depression.

But what does Trump say?

"We are going to get you back and operating immediately," Trump told an impromptu crowd
that gathered outside a Corpus Christi fire station about 30 miles from where the storm made
landfall Friday.

Trump Offers Flag-Waving Optimism in Visit to Harvey's Path

Source: AP

"We are going to get you back and operating immediately," Trump told an impromptu crowd
that gathered outside a Corpus Christi fire station about 30 miles from where the storm made
landfall Friday.

"What a crowd, what a turnout," Trump declared before waving a Texas flag from atop a step ladder
positioned between two fire trucks. "This is historic. It's epic what happened, but you know what, it
happened in Texas, and Texas can handle anything."

Trump spoke optimistically about the pace of the recovery, and predicted his response would be a textbook case for future presidents.

"We want to do it better than ever before," he said. "We want to be looked at in five years, in 10 years from now as, 'This is the way to do it.'"

The man is certifiable. 1/2 a million cars are DOA because of the flooding, God only knows
how many homes will have to be torn down because of black mold and structural
problems, and I doubt many businesses will be ready to open their doors and get back
to work.

A must see!

I will get all of Putin’s team to buy in on this."

No, the shark picture isnt real: A running list of Harveys viral hoaxes

Source: Washington post

The shark picture is fake

Any time you see a picture of a shark swimming down a street — or in a subway station, or what have you — after a major flooding event, be suspicious. Fake shark pictures, often the work of photo editing, are the most inevitable visual viral hoax in a disaster like this, to the point that it’s almost become a meme.

The shark is not swimming down the street. It was not swimming down the (same) street during Hurricane Matthew. It wasn’t swimming in the aftermath of Sandy. And most of the other pictures of sharks swimming where people were are fake too.

Obama is not serving food to evacuees in Texas right now

A viral, now-deleted tweet claimed to show former president Barack Obama serving hot meals to those evacuated from the floods in Texas.

“Something you’ll never see Trump do: Obama is in Texas serving meals!,” the tweet read. While the photo is real, the context is fake – it’s not a recent photo of Obama, and it has nothing to do with the former president’s response to Harvey.
