Democrats Press for Federal Investigation Into Trump University
Sep 13, 2016, 7:39 PM ET

Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee wrote to the Department of Justice today asking Attorney General Loretta Lynch to look into the Donald J. Trump Foundation’s $25,000 donation to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.

The letter follows an extensive Washington Post report on Trump's eponymous charitable organization. Trump aides told the newspaper that the foundation mistakenly donated $25,000 to a group backing Bondi in 2013, while her office was considering an investigation into Trump University.

"This fact pattern indicates that these payments may have influenced Ms. Bondi's official decision not to participate in litigation against Mr. Trump," Democrats wrote in their letter.

Trump's campaign paid a penalty to the Internal Revenue Service for violating tax laws.

Obama: Clinton 'Steady,' Trump 'Not Fit in Any Way' to Lead

Anyone, in the USA -except Trump - who plans to open a casino, must be squeaky clean! How was Trump allowed to ever open a casino, after a lifetime of IRS investigations and violations?

What's not funny is after Trump destroys the economy on a trillion dollar wall, jobs will vanish

But we'll still be paying tax increases on his other crazy economic decisions. According to NPR, he plans to spend billions more on a goon-squad to persecute Hispanics and other minorities, in numerous ways.

Like mainstream media - please avoid focusing on Teflon Don's old links to Russia, China and even the Mafia, along with his more recent praise of the Communist President of North Korea. For our own safety, let's not comment or recommend this Opening Post.

There is a high probability Hillary watched Bewitched on television: but she cannot twitch her nose - or face - like Trump and Manson to magically create a wall, all along the Mexican Border that will fail, while costing taxpayers billions of dollars.

As for the FBI, what the Hell do our tax dollars pay these agents to do for the USA?

Many Muslim, Hispanic and Black voters must realize that Trump is changing his approach to their issues.

As for animal rights activist, even though Trump's platonic family engages in and supports the slaughter of endangered species, Teflon Don loves animals, if they serve him:

Faster than a duck snatches up a June-bug, Trump will change like a chameleon, when animals or people offend or criticize him.

According to Director Comey of the FBI, who is in season?

As for Trump's obvious attitudes on skin color, I have never seen a human that was truly white, black, brown, or especially yellow; but other animals come in those colors after they retreat from ANY dangerous enemy. Again, imagery might be too explicit for animal activist.

The final animated gif relates to Trump's wall and Teflon Don Drumph last name. His first wife, current porn star, plagiarist and a previously, unnamed, 13 year old rape victim swore, in court that Trump raped and abused them; but that's not as funny as Republicans impeaching Hillary's Hubby for simply smoking a cigar with an intern, named Monica, who claimed it was a blunt, containing Marijuana; but they didn't "inhale." For legal reasons, this next animated gif must be viewed, while the musical link is playing.

On a deeper psychological level facial comparisons reveal nearly identical behavior with individuals, who share similar goals and psychiatric issues:

Unprecedented Flooding in Louisiana and Texas indicates a worse problem:

Climate Change will destroy humanity and most life on Earth, faster than anyone realizes it will. Diverse species are intricately intertwined with each other and the environment.

Think It’s Hot Now? Just Wait


July wasn’t just hot — it was the hottest month ever recorded, according to NASA. And this year is likely to be the hottest year on record.

Fourteen of the 15 hottest years have occurred since 2000, as heat waves have become more frequent, more intense and longer lasting. A study in the journal Nature Climate Change last year found that three of every four daily heat extremes can be tied to global warming.

This map provides a glimpse of our future if nothing is done to slow climate change. By the end of the century, the number of 100-degree days will skyrocket, making working or playing outdoors unbearable, and sometimes deadly. The effects on our health, air quality, food and water supplies will get only worse if we don’t drastically cut greenhouse gas emissions right away.

Are you suffering from "Vacation Envy?"

Most U.S. Citizens, vacationing in foreign nations aren’t having as much fun as they planned, thanks to one man — Donald Trump.

Americans vacationing overseas find themselves on a Donald Trump apology tour
Yep, this summer, an overseas vacation has become a relentless apology tour, and just about every American with a passport is being interrogated by the rest of the world about our bizarre Republican presidential candidate.

“Two weeks abroad and I lost count of how many baffled Europeans asked us to explain Donald Trump,” tweeted Sherry Stern, a California magazine editor who found herself Trumpsplaining in London; Cambridge, England; and Budapest.

Add another thing to the list of things Trump has stained.

The ‘Trump Effect’ is contaminating our kids — and could resonate for years https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/americans-vacationing-overseas-find-themselves-on-a-donald-trump-apology-tour/2016/08/11/cb6b30ac-5fd1-11e6-af8e-54aa2e849447_story.html?tid=hybrid_experimentrandom_2_na

Paris mayor: Trump is 'so stupid'

Donald Trump is provoking insults from more than just London's new mayor, with the mayor of Paris jumping in to slam the Republican presidential candidate.

"Mr. Trump is so stupid, my God," Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, standing next to new London Mayor Sadiq Khan, said this week when asked about Trump's proposal to ban Muslims from entering the United States.

Khan, London's first Muslim mayor, has been criticizing Trump for days over the New York billionaire's idea, saying it would prevent him from visiting the U.S. http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/279532-paris-mayor-donald-trump-is-so-stupid

The science is interesting; and this piece of media is breathtakingly beautiful:

Science News
"The universe is expanding even faster than expected"
June 2, 2016
Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)
Hubble Space Telescope astronomers have discovered that the universe is expanding 5-9% percent faster than expected. They made the discovery by refining the universe's current expansion rate to unprecedented accuracy, reducing the uncertainty to only 2.4%. The team made the refinements by developing innovative techniques that improved the precision of distance measurements to faraway galaxies. These measurements are fundamental to making more precise calculations of how fast the universe expands with time, a value called the Hubble constant.

Teflon Don and his sons robustly defend their big game hunting and boast of numerous endangered elephants, leopards and other animals, they slaughtered in Zimbabwe.

In the next image, we see the son of Teflon Don holding a trophy from an endangered species he slaughtered. Maybe he can bring it to his father, who has small hands. He could stick it down his pants. He'll figure out some way to attract female voters. Don't worry, I bet the Trump boys paid for their trip, by selling the ivory tusks. At least U.S. taxpayers dodged financing a Trump, African hunting expedition, this time.

Abused Circus Tiger Gets Fairy-Tale Ending

Hoover the tiger will be sent from Peru to Florida on Friday after spending more than a grim decade with a traveling circus.

Abused Circus Tiger Gets Fairy-Tale Ending
By Laurel Neme
PUBLISHED April 21, 2016

Alongside crates of asparagus, Hoover the tiger will be airlifted Friday from Peru to Florida, where he’ll settle into a new home in Tampa after a lifetime of suffering.

Hoover has spent his entire nearly 12 years performing tricks with a traveling circus in Peru. His harrowing journey to a new life reads like a bestselling thriller. The plot line—Operation Spirit of Freedom—was conceived by Jan Creamer and Tim Philips, co-founders of Animal Defenders International (ADI), a U.K.-based organization dedicated to stopping animal abuse and saving animals in distress...

An eight-hour standoff with Circo Koreander followed, leading to the rescue of Mufasa the mountain lion, who had been chained to the back of a truck for 20 years...

After being nursed back to health, Mufasa was released last November in Peru’s Taricaya Ecological Reserve, in the Amazon rain forest. One month later he died from kidney failure and other age-related problems. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2016/04/160421-tiger-hoover-circus-rescue/ Abused Circus Tiger Gets Fairy-Tale Ending


It’s frightening but true: Our planet is now in the midst of its sixth mass extinction of plants and animals — the sixth wave of extinctions in the past half-billion years. We’re currently experiencing the worst spate of species die-offs since the loss of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Although extinction is a natural phenomenon, it occurs at a natural “background” rate of about one to five species per year. Scientists estimate we’re now losing species at 1,000 to 10,000 times the background rate, with literally dozens going extinct every day [1]. It could be a scary future indeed, with as many as 30 to 50 percent of all species possibly heading toward extinction by mid-century.

Unlike past mass extinctions, caused by events like asteroid strikes, volcanic eruptions, and natural climate shifts, the current crisis is almost entirely caused by us — humans. In fact, 99 percent of currently threatened species are at risk from human activities, primarily those driving habitat loss, introduction of exotic species, and global warming. Because the rate of change in our biosphere is increasing, and because every species’ extinction potentially leads to the extinction of others bound to that species in a complex ecological web, numbers of extinctions are likely to snowball in the coming decades as ecosystems unravel.

Species diversity ensures ecosystem resilience, giving ecological communities the scope they need to withstand stress. Thus while conservationists often justifiably focus their efforts on species-rich ecosystems like rainforests and coral reefs — which have a lot to lose — a comprehensive strategy for saving biodiversity must also include habitat types with fewer species, like grasslands, tundra, and polar seas — for which any loss could be irreversibly devastating. And while much concern over extinction focuses on globally lost species, most of biodiversity’s benefits take place at a local level, and conserving local populations is the only way to ensure genetic diversity critical for a species’ long-term survival.

In the past 500 years, we know of approximately 1,000 species that have gone extinct, from the woodland bison of West Virginia and Arizona’s Merriam’s elk to the Rocky Mountain grasshopper, passenger pigeon and Puerto Rico’s Culebra parrot — but this doesn’t account for thousands of species that disappeared before scientists had a chance to describe them [4]. Nobody really knows how many species are in danger of becoming extinct. Noted conservation scientist David Wilcove estimates that there are 14,000 to 35,000 endangered species in the United States, which is 7 to 18 percent of U.S. flora and fauna. The IUCN has assessed roughly 3 percent of described species and identified 16,928 species worldwide as being threatened with extinction, or roughly 38 percent of those assessed. In its latest four-year endangered species assessment, the IUCN reports that the world won’t meet a goal of reversing the extinction trend toward species depletion by 2010??? http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2016/04/160421-tiger-hoover-circus-rescue/

Did your pet die recently? Progressives can have their "sign of the times" like religious zealots, can't we? I am asking the rather sizable (Nazi-type, volunteer Freeper and a bunch of professional, international trolls, not those silly Trump-trolls this OP will allow FBI agents to begin investigating for terrorism, hate-crimes, the RICO act etc.) I am asking really wealthy educated people if they think humans can adapt to far less oxygen quickly. If God is comey, he should be here by now... I don't think Homo Sapiens can dodge this bullet!

Without internet or TV, villagers did not realize their "Fallen Angel" went viral

Excited villagers thought they had been blessed by an 'angel from heaven' after doll washes up on a beach in Indonesia – only to discover it was an inflatable SEX TOY!

The discovery in March came a day after a solar eclipse swept across the area, a deeply spiritual experience in the world's most populous Muslim-majority country. This led superstitious locals to believe the two events were linked.

Villagers gave the 'angel' a fresh change of clothes and new Muslim headscarf to wear every day and pictures showed it sitting up in a chair and accompanying locals on a boat trip (above)

Police decided to investigate after becoming concerned the increasing excitement about the 'angel' could lead to unrest – and soon punctured the theory.

'We were hearing many stories, such as that the "fallen angel" was crying when she was discovered,' said police chief Heru Pramukarno.

'When our officers arrived they saw that the "fallen angel" was (not) just a doll, it was a sex toy.'
