Maðurinn er ÓÐUR!! ÓÐUR!! Hann vill senda menn til tunglsins og mars!!

http://www.visir.is/g/2017171219783/vill-senda-menn-aftur-til-tunglsins-og-svo-til-mars

Kannski hann handvelji einhverja úr þinginu til að senda upp.

Það er samt merkilegt. Hann er að taka bara venjulegar ákvarðanir sem venjulegir forsetar taka. Kannski hefði hann átt að segja "við munum ekki senda neina manneskju út í geim lengur, því það er of dýrt!"... þá hefði hann verið dæmdur klikkhaus...

Hey, róa sig aðeins.... essgan.... hahaha....

Trump er "Commander in Chief." Yfirmaður herafla Bandaríkjanna. Þeir hundsa skipun hans. Hinn mikli sigurvegari. Eða þannig...

Dómsstólaleiðin er ekki búin ennþá, og það hefur sýnt sig að svona liberal-left-aktavista-dómarar hafa tapað fyrir hæstarétti, t.d. töpuðu máli í síðustu viku er varðaði bann við fólki frá ákveðnum löndum.

Það er samt hálfur sigur enn sem komið er fyrir Trump, að búið er að setja þessar ströngu reglur um inngöngu. Ég veit ekki hvernig þessar reglur voru áður undir Obama, en það er ljóst að þær eru mun hertari reglur núna undir Trump.

En þetta er nú ekki stærsta og mikilvægasta málið, í stóra samhenginu skiptir þetta engu máli.

Starfsmenn Hvíta hússins báðu um frest til að fara dómstólaleiðina, en herinn trúir greinilega ekki að sú leið muni virka, þannig að þeir ákváðu í raun að hunsa þessa skipun forsetans. Og það hversu stórt málið er - það þykir alltaf stórt mál ef forseti BNA mismunar fólki. Það hafa auðvitað verið nokkrir þrælaeigendur forsetar Bandaríkjanna. Þó enginn eftir miðja 19. öld, eins og gefur að skilja. Líka nokkrir rasistar. En það hefur ekki verið neinn yfirlýstur rasisti í Hvíta húsinu í heila öld. Harry Truman, sá sem tók við af Rooesvelt 1945 og var forseti til 1953, talaði um að það hefði munað litlu að hann gerðist meðlimur í KKK sem ungur maður, einhverntíma í byrjun síðustu aldar. Hann varð þó sá forseti sem steig fyrstu skrefin í mannréttindabaráttu svertingja, strax árið 1948, þegar hann afnam aðskilnað í bandaríska hernum. Þetta er því auðvitað ekki klippt og skorið - og menn geta breytt um skoðanir á lífsleiðinni. Trump hefur þó, bæði með gjörðum sínum og verkum sýnt, að hann er algjör erkirasisti og sýnir þeim sem eru öðruvísi algjöra mannfyrirlitningu...

Eftir því sem maður les samt meira um Mike Pence, því minna sniðugt finnst manni að hrekja Trump frá völdum. Pence kæmi nefnilega miklu meiru i gegnum þingið og það alveg skelfilegum hlutum (auðvitað ekki í augum semí-fasista og Trump aðdáenda), eins og að auka vægi kristinnar trúar á kostnað annarra trúarbragða, en lika á kostnað beinna mannréttinda o.fl. Eini kosturinn við Pence er þó hugsanlega sá, að hann myndi lægja öldurnar gagnvart N-Kóreu. Og það er heila málið. Trump er svo hryllilega óstabíll. Fær svona hugdettur og skrifar forsetatilskipanir án þess að hugsa málin til enda og án þess að tala við kóng eða prest...

Slaka aðeins á, DOJ er búið að áfrýa þessari vitleysu. Meira segja CNN fjallar um þetta:

They argued that implementing "a significant change" to military standards for the composition of the armed forces even before a court decides the merits of the case would "place extraordinary burdens on our armed forces and may harm military readiness."

Annars, er ekkert auðvelt að komast gegnum inntökuferlið sem transari, ágætlega lýst hér:

Moore í Alabama að fá glimrandi útkomu í skoðanakönnun, allt Trump að þakka:

Ég held satt best að segja að þetta sé ekki Trump að þakka. Miklu frekar þeirri staðreynd að þakka að fjölmiðlar hafa svo hrikalega misst traust fólksins að þegar fjölmiðlar fjalla um Moore þá heldur fólkið "Moore er saklaus, þau eru að ljúga" og kjósa þennan (meinta) pervert.

Ég er búinn að vera að blása um þessa lélegu fjölmiðlar með Trump Derangement Syndrome af háu stigi í 1,5 ár og voila, hér erum við komin. Þetta er það sem gerist þegar fjölmiðlar missa traust almennings.

Pierce Morgan, frjálslyndur blaða- og fjölmiðlamaður sem hefur ekki farið leynt með það að honum er ekkert sérlega vel við Trump, bendir hér á eitt. Trump efnir loforðin. Já, það er náttla hræðilegt þegar fólk í stjórnmálum efnir loforðin sem þau fengu atkvæði út á.

Það er gaman að sjá að í haugasjó forskrúfaðra blaðamanna sem láta hatrið blinda sig og narra sig í að birta lygafréttir, þá eru þarna inn á milli blaðamenn sem geta sett til hliðar sína persónulegu skoðun og sagt fréttir á eins hlutlausan máta og þeim er unnt. Því það er það sem mér þætti vænt um að væri meira af: Hlutleysi í fjölmiðlum í orði og borði.

It's true, we've NEVER had a president like Trump - he actually keeps his promises. No wonder the liberal media can't stand him

Donald Trump, according to his many critics, is the single most divisive, stupid, bigoted and unpopular president in American history.
To say Trump is ‘polarizing’ is to massively understate the sheer enormity of hatred that exists toward the billionaire tycoon who won the White House just over a year ago.
On social media, every minute of every day, I see hysterical liberals screaming themselves digitally hoarse with rage at his very existence.
I have friends, and indeed family members, who can’t utter his name without physically shuddering.
To them, Trump epitomizes the very worst kind of leader and the very worst kind of American.

Yet, there’s one thing even his most vociferous enemies – and that is a historically high volume of human beings – cannot continue to deny, and it’s this: Donald Trump delivers on his promises.

Of course, in the main, they’re not promises his opponents actually wanted him to keep, but that is beside the point.

When you win an election, you also win the right to carry out the pledges you made as a candidate. That is the inherent bedrock of democracy.

And judging Trump entirely from that perspective, he is beginning to really, REALLY deliver.

In the past week alone, there were three perfect examples.

First, Candidate Trump repeatedly vowed to ‘wipe the hell out of ISIS’.

Now, within a year, the Islamist terror group that gained so much ground and support during Barack Obama’s tenure – he dismissed them as a “J.V. team” – has been routed from Syria and Iraq.

To put this into proper context, at one stage ISIS held land equivalent to West Virginia and was aggressively expanding its geographical ‘caliphate’.

Now they’ve been driven out of both countries with astonishing speed.

Experts say this success is down to Trump authorizing his military commanders, led by secretary of defense Gen. James Mattis, to do what they needed to do without getting bogged down by slow-moving, agenda-driven politicians in Washington.

Brig. Gen. Robert Sofge, the top US Marine in Iraq, said he and his men ‘enjoyed not having to deal with too many distractions’ and ‘there was no question about what the mission in Iraq’ now was.

Yahya Rasool, a spokesman for Iraq’s Ministry of Defense, agreed: ‘I was not optimistic when Trump first came to office,’ he said, ‘but after a while I started to see a new approach. I saw how the coalition forces were all moving faster to help the Iraq side more than before. There seemed to be a lot of support, under Obama we did not get this.’

Nobody is complacent about the ongoing threat of ISIS and its supporters continuing to commit terrorist acts on civilian soil as they are driven from the battlefield.

But the importance of kicking them out of Iraq and Syria cannot be overstated.

Second, the President has enjoyed similar success on the domestic economic front.

At every campaign rally, Candidate Trump promised to preside over economic growth, gets jobs going again, and stock markets roaring.

He’s doing all that.

Unemployment is at a 17-year low, hiring is strong - last Friday’s jobs report showed 228,000 new jobs in November - GDP expanded 3.3% in the third quarter, and the stock market keeps breaking new records.

All this after America’s supposedly leading economist Paul Krugman tweeted on election night: ‘It really does now look like President Donald J. Trump, and markets are plunging. If the question is when markets will recover a first-pass is never.’

Financial experts put this success down to Trump unburdening America of many of the over-draconian and panicky regulatory barriers put in place after the 2008/9 crash.

As a result there is a new spring in the step of the US economy, a tangible surge in confidence after years in the post-crash doldrums.

Riding the wave of all this optimism, Trump has just got his much-vaunted $1.4 trillion tax overhaul approved in the Senate.

If it succeeds how he says it will – and it’s a very big ‘if’ - then he will head into the 2020 election with a massive, possibly unbeatable head of steam. Very few US presidents in history have ever lost if they’ve run again on the back of a surging economy.

Trump is thus achieving an almost unique feat of being personally disliked in almost unprecedented levels – his approval ratings have plummeted to 32% in some polls - but being increasingly lauded for his handling of the economy, a new Gallup survey showing him with a 45% approval rating for this key issue.

Third, Candidate Trump promised to confirm Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to move the US Embassy there from Tel Aviv.

Last week, he announced both things.

I personally think it’s a dangerous and unnecessary move, but you can’t say he didn’t vow to do it if he got elected because he did, repeatedly.

These three momentous things follow a long line of promises Trump has kept.

He has moved to renegotiate NAFTA, pull out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, walk out of the Paris climate accord, target the Iran nuclear deal and start work on his ‘big, beautiful’ wall along the Southern border (just the threat of it has led to a 38% fall in illegal immigrants coming over that border since he was elected).

The Supreme Court even recently approved his revised and very controversial travel ban on residents of seven predominantly Muslim countries.

Again, regardless of what you think of it, this was something Trump said he’d do and he has done it.

By contrast, Obama – an eloquent, intelligent and thoughtful man liked and admired by almost the entire world – abjectly failed on many of his biggest promises including pledges to close Guantanamo Bay, get new gun control laws, create a path to citizenship for undocumented illegals, reform Washington, and end the war in Afghanistan.

Donald Trump is an imperfect president in many ways and I say that as someone who has known him as a friend for ten years and likes him.

He’s an inflammatory tweeter, picking fights with anyone and everyone from Kim Jong Un to Gold Star widows. We’ve never seen a president behave this way and it terrifies people,

He flies fast and loose with the truth, though in that regard he is not a rare specimen in the world of Washington, or indeed global politics.

And he does truly dumb, offensive and totally unnecessary things like retweet unverified anti-Muslim videos by the racist Britain First organisation, then obstinately refuse to undo the retweets when he is told exactly who they are.

Going back over my old columns since his inauguration, I’ve found myself harshly criticising him as much as I’ve praised him.

Yet there can be no doubt now that President Trump is a man who is delivering on his promises to the American people who voted for him.

They are not the bleeding hearts of New York and Los Angeles, nor the largely liberal media elite who seem hell bent on destroying him as revenge for his ‘fake news’ mantra.

Incidentally, the latter’s indignation at this slur would be easier to stomach if they didn’t keep reporting false anti-Trump stories. In the past 10 days alone, journalists from four supposedly reputable media organisations (ABC, CNN, Bloomberg and Washington Post) have had to retract stories – a shameful state of affairs that simply serves to strengthen his point.

No, those who voted for Trump are the people who live between the coasts, the Middle Americans who saw in him a loud, brash, uncompromising, ruthless bull in a china shop who might just cut through all the Washington crap to make their lives safer and more prosperous.

I was down in Florida and Missouri recently and the Trump train is steaming just has hard there as it was before the election.

They love what they see in their president, warts and all.

They think he’s got ISIS on the run, illegal immigration back under control, jobs pouring back, the economy roaring again, and the cocky all-powerful media back in its box.

Love him or loathe him, Trump’s doing exactly what he told them he’d do.

Hugsa að það sé ákveðinn skortur að skilja ekki hversu mikið gallað eintak þessi maður er. Ég efast um að ég hafi verið meir en 5 mín að sjá hann út þegar ég eyddi þeim mínútum í raunveruleikaþátt einhvern á Stöð 2 á sínum tíma.. þar sem hann átti að velja færasta stjórnandann eða eitthvað álíka. Hélt að kallinn væri klár og mundi sjá strax hverjir væru klárir og hverjir ekki.. en hann það bara skein í gegn hversu miður gefinn hann var. Í raun virkaði hann á mig eins og sumir guttarnir hérna á Málefni.com Stórir í kjaftinum en með litla heila-notkun.

Nú.. þegar hann bauð sig fram þá ritaði ég strax þá lýsingu að USA væri uppfylla Idiocracy spádóminn. USA á leiðinni með algeran fávita í valdamesta embætti jarðarinnar.

Illugi fer ekki mildum orðum um hann á Stundinni.

Quote

 

Æ fleiri Bandaríkjamenn horfast nú í augu við að burtséð frá skoðunum Trumps forseta og fasi hans öllu og tísti, þá er líklegt að hann sé á fallanda fæti andlega og sé í raun ófær um að gegna því embætti sem hann var kosinn til.

Meira að segja nánir samstarfsmenn forsetans hafa verið staðnir að því að fara mjög niðrandi orðum um andlega hæfileika hans. Rex Tillerson utanríkisráðherra kallaði hann „fábjána“ [moron] og öryggisráðgjafinn H.R.McMaster mun hafa látið svo um mælt að Trump væri „fífl“ [idot] og „asni“ [dope] og hefði gáfur á við leikskólakrakka.

...snip

 

Þegar nánustu samstarfsmenn hans eru farnir að kalla manninn slíkum nöfnum.. ja, þá er farið að fjúka í flest skjól.

@feu, Illugi er svo langt frá því að vera einhver marktækur í þessu. Illugi er í raun eitt af fórnarlömbum þróunar á umræðumenningunni sl. 2-3 ár. Fór úr því að vera málefnaleg og halda sig við staðreyndir út í það að vera bara að moka skít í flórunum. Hvort hann hittir eða hittir ekki í skítkastinu, það er upp og ofan. En í það minnsta er hann sjálfur allur útataður í skít fyrir vikið. En hér er spurning, feu, nú ertu sjálfur doldið í business. Heldur þú að Trump hafi náð þeim árangri í New York fasteignabransanum með því að vera heimskur? Jú, óheflaður, jú, ruddi, jú narsisisti. En "alger fáviti"? Really?

Ég held ekki að Bandaríkjamenn hafi misst traust á fjölmiðlum. Það eru hinsvegar kjósendur Trump, sem horfa á Fox "News" og lesa "fréttir" á Breitbart, sem búið er að ljúga fulla. Talandi um fake news, þá er búinn að vera stanslaust skitkast og áróður gegn Mueller, sem er að rannsaka Trump. Og þegar þeir hafa ekkert á hann, þá er bara eitthvað búið til. Svona eins og þegar þeir fluttu vikum saman fréttir af því að Obama væri ekki fæddur í Bandaríkjunum. Það eru líka stanslausar fréttir af því í þessum miðlum, að það hafi verið borið fé í konurnar sem ásaka Roy Moore um að hafa áreitt þær og misnotað þegar þær voru undir lögaldri. Þessvegna eru Alabamabúar nú um það bil að fara að kjósa pedófíl í öldungadeildina...

Já. Er nánast öruggur á því að hvaða fáviti sem er mundi hafa grætt miklu meir en Trömp í þessum business.. enda maðurinn með gargandi sögu mistaka, gjaldþrota og klúðurs. 

Samt hefur fasteignaverð og leiguverð rokið upp í langflestum stórborgum bandaríkjanna. Bólur sem eru afleiðingar af prentun á peningum í Wall Street. Menn sem erfa stór auðævi 1980 og eitthvað.. voru fordæmdir til að verða forríkir jafnvel þótt þeir gerðu ekkert annað en að kaupa fasteignir.  

Fíflið Trömp tapapi meir en meðaltals hækkun á eignum frá þeim tíma sem hann fékk auðævin í arf. Svo illa gefinn er hann. Hann væri í dag ríkari maður ef hann hefði bara keypt blandaðan böndul í Wall Street.. sem er auðvitað fáránlegt í ljósi þess að fasteignir og staðsetning þeirra er í raun okkar nútíma gull.

Loks.. nokkuð öruggur á því að það sé vægast veikt samband á milli peninga græðgi og gáfna.. ja.. nema þá síður sé!

 

Hér eru annars dæmi um 10 mistök hans í business..

Trump Airlines

trump-fail-001.jpg?quality=85&w=1100&q=8

David A. Cantor—AP

In October 1988, Donald Trump threw his wallet into the airline business by purchasing Eastern Air Shuttle, a service that for 27 years had run hourly flights between Boston, New York City and Washington, D.C. For roughly $365 million, Trump got a fleet of 17 Boeing 727s, landing facilities in each of the three cities and the right to paint his name on an airplane. Trump pushed to give the airline the Trump touch, making the previously no-muss, no-fuss shuttle service into a luxury experience. To this end, he added maple-wood veneer to the floors, chrome seat-belt latches and gold-colored bathroom fixtures. But his gamble was a bust. A lack of increased interest from customers (who favored the airline for its convenience not its fancy new look) combined with high pre–Gulf War fuel prices meant the shuttle never turned a profit. The high debt forced Trump to default on his loans, and ownership of the company was turned over to creditors. The Trump Shuttle ceased to exist in 1992 when it was merged into a new corporation, Shuttle Inc.

In April 2006, Trump announced that, after years in the real estate business, he was launching a mortgage company. He held a glitzy press conference at which his son Donald Jr. predicted that Trump Mortgage would soon be the nation’s No. 1 home-loan lender. Trump told CNBC, “Who knows more about financing than me?” Apparently, plenty. Within a year and a half, Trump Mortgage had closed shop. The would-be lending powerhouse was done in by timing (the housing market cratered in 2007) and ironically enough, given Trump’s Apprentice TV show, poor hiring. The executive Trump selected to run his loan company, E.J. Ridings, claimed to have been a top executive at a prestigious investment bank. In reality, Ridings’ highest role on Wall Street was as a registered broker, a position he held for a mere six days.

Trump: The Game

trump-fail-007.jpg?quality=85&w=1100&q=8

Victoria Arocho—AP

In 1989, the Donald teamed up with Milton Bradley to release Trump: The Game, a Monopolyesque board game in which three to four players must buy and sell real estate and try to trump one another in business deals. A year later Trump admitted the game was vastly underselling the predicted 2 million units he and the toy company had hoped for. Not one to abandon ideas, Trump revived the game 15 years later after his success on The Apprentice, making sure to incorporate the series catchphrase “You’re fired!” into the game. Other updated features included a sterner-looking Trump on the box cover, somewhat simpler rules and cards with business tips.

The China Connection

trump-fail-008.jpg?quality=85&w=1100&q=8

“The problem with our country is we don’t manufacture anything anymore,” Donald Trump told Fox News a year ago. “The stuff that’s been sent over from China,” he complained, “falls apart after a year and a half. It’s crap.” That very same Donald Trump has his own line of clothing, and it’s made in … China. (O.K., O.K. — not all of it. Salon, which reported this intriguing, head-scratching fact, notes that some of his apparel is from Mexico and Bangladesh.)

Trump Casinos

trump-fail-009.jpg?quality=85&w=1100&q=8

Saul Loeb—AFP/Getty Images

Donald Trump’s gambles don’t always go as planned. Especially when that gamble is gambling itself. In February 2009, Trump Entertainment Resorts Inc. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection for the third time in a row — an extremely rare feat in American business. The casino company, founded in the 1980s, runs the Taj Mahal, the Trump Plaza and the Trump Marina. All three casinos are located in Atlantic City, N.J., where the gambling industry has faced a decline in tourists who prefer gambling in Pennsylvania and Connecticut instead. Trump defended himself by distancing himself from the company, though he owned 28% of its stock. “Other than the fact that it has my name on it — which I’m not thrilled about — I have nothing to do with the company,” he said. He resigned from Trump Entertainment soon after that third filing, and in August of that year he, along with an affiliate of Beal Bank Nevada, agreed to buy the company for $100 million.

Donald Trump was featured on the June 2007 cover of the Sharper Image catalog hunched over a platter of meat to kick off his line of premium steaks that he dubbed the “world’s greatest.” The company has since been discontinued—maybe it had something to do with the Trump Steakhouse in Las Vegas being closed down in 2012 for 51 health code violations, including serving five-month old duck.

Trump launched an eponymous magazine in 2007 that, in a press release announcing the publication’s arrival, was described as “[reflecting] the passions of its affluent readership by tapping into a rich cultural tapestry.” A year-and-a-half after the launch, the magazine ceased publication.

In 2005, Trump opened the non-accredited, for-profit Trump University. In 2010, four students sued the university for “offering classes that amounted to extended ‘infomercials.’” Following the suit, the “university” changed its name to “The Trump Entrepreneur Initiative,” before ending operations one year later. In 2013, the New York Attorney General sued Trump and the “university” for $40 million for allegedly defrauding students.

Já. Er nánast öruggur á því að hvaða fáviti sem er mundi hafa grætt miklu meir en Trömp í þessum business.. enda maðurinn með gargandi sögu mistaka, gjaldþrota og klúðurs. 

Samt hefur fasteignaverð og leiguverð rokið upp í langflestum stórborgum bandaríkjanna. Bólur sem eru afleiðingar af prentun á peningum í Wall Street. Menn sem erfa stór auðævi 1980 og eitthvað.. voru fordæmdir til að verða forríkir jafnvel þótt þeir gerðu ekkert annað en að kaupa fasteignir.  

Fíflið Trömp tapapi meir en meðaltals hækkun á eignum frá þeim tíma sem hann fékk auðævin í arf. Svo illa gefinn er hann. Hann væri í dag ríkari maður ef hann hefði bara keypt blandaðan böndul í Wall Street.. sem er auðvitað fáránlegt í ljósi þess að fasteignir og staðsetning þeirra er í raun okkar nútíma gull.

Loks.. nokkuð öruggur á því að það sé vægast veikt samband á milli peninga græðgi og gáfna.. ja.. nema þá síður sé!

 

Hér eru annars dæmi um 10 mistök hans í business..

Trump Airlines

In October 1988, Donald Trump threw his wallet into the airline business by purchasing Eastern Air Shuttle, a service that for 27 years had run hourly flights between Boston, New York City and Washington, D.C. For roughly $365 million, Trump got a fleet of 17 Boeing 727s, landing facilities in each of the three cities and the right to paint his name on an airplane. Trump pushed to give the airline the Trump touch, making the previously no-muss, no-fuss shuttle service into a luxury experience. To this end, he added maple-wood veneer to the floors, chrome seat-belt latches and gold-colored bathroom fixtures. But his gamble was a bust. A lack of increased interest from customers (who favored the airline for its convenience not its fancy new look) combined with high pre–Gulf War fuel prices meant the shuttle never turned a profit. The high debt forced Trump to default on his loans, and ownership of the company was turned over to creditors. The Trump Shuttle ceased to exist in 1992 when it was merged into a new corporation, Shuttle Inc.

In April 2006, Trump announced that, after years in the real estate business, he was launching a mortgage company. He held a glitzy press conference at which his son Donald Jr. predicted that Trump Mortgage would soon be the nation’s No. 1 home-loan lender. Trump told CNBC, “Who knows more about financing than me?” Apparently, plenty. Within a year and a half, Trump Mortgage had closed shop. The would-be lending powerhouse was done in by timing (the housing market cratered in 2007) and ironically enough, given Trump’s Apprentice TV show, poor hiring. The executive Trump selected to run his loan company, E.J. Ridings, claimed to have been a top executive at a prestigious investment bank. In reality, Ridings’ highest role on Wall Street was as a registered broker, a position he held for a mere six days.

Trump: The Game

In 1989, the Donald teamed up with Milton Bradley to release Trump: The Game, a Monopolyesque board game in which three to four players must buy and sell real estate and try to trump one another in business deals. A year later Trump admitted the game was vastly underselling the predicted 2 million units he and the toy company had hoped for. Not one to abandon ideas, Trump revived the game 15 years later after his success on The Apprentice, making sure to incorporate the series catchphrase “You’re fired!” into the game. Other updated features included a sterner-looking Trump on the box cover, somewhat simpler rules and cards with business tips.

The China Connection

“The problem with our country is we don’t manufacture anything anymore,” Donald Trump told Fox News a year ago. “The stuff that’s been sent over from China,” he complained, “falls apart after a year and a half. It’s crap.” That very same Donald Trump has his own line of clothing, and it’s made in … China. (O.K., O.K. — not all of it. Salon, which reported this intriguing, head-scratching fact, notes that some of his apparel is from Mexico and Bangladesh.)

Trump Casinos

Donald Trump’s gambles don’t always go as planned. Especially when that gamble is gambling itself. In February 2009, Trump Entertainment Resorts Inc. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection for the third time in a row — an extremely rare feat in American business. The casino company, founded in the 1980s, runs the Taj Mahal, the Trump Plaza and the Trump Marina. All three casinos are located in Atlantic City, N.J., where the gambling industry has faced a decline in tourists who prefer gambling in Pennsylvania and Connecticut instead. Trump defended himself by distancing himself from the company, though he owned 28% of its stock. “Other than the fact that it has my name on it — which I’m not thrilled about — I have nothing to do with the company,” he said. He resigned from Trump Entertainment soon after that third filing, and in August of that year he, along with an affiliate of Beal Bank Nevada, agreed to buy the company for $100 million. The company reported it emerged from bankruptcy in July 2010.

Þeir sem rannsakað hafa Trump, segja að hann hafi tapað um 75% þeirra auðæva sem hann erfði eftir föður sinn. Að hann hefði betur bara lagt allan peninginn inn á banka og lifað af vöxtunum - þá væri hann múltíbilli í dag. En nei - það eru auðvitað fake news, hvernig læt ég - Trump er meistari. Trump er ljósið...

Ég held ekki að Bandaríkjamenn hafi misst traust á fjölmiðlum. Það eru hinsvegar kjósendur Trump, sem horfa á Fox "News" og lesa "fréttir" á Breitbart, sem búið er að ljúga fulla.

Held ekki. Held að hérna sértu að vanmeta Bandaríkjamenn yfir höfuð.

Það er aftur á móti slæmt að gamall pedo sé að ná kjöri þrátt fyrir trúverðugar ásakanirnar (sem sumar hafa reynst falsaðar að hluta). Þetta mál allt er ferlegt.

Talandi um fake news, þá er búinn að vera stanslaust skitkast og áróður gegn Mueller, sem er að rannsaka Trump. Og þegar þeir hafa ekkert á hann, þá er bara eitthvað búið til

Eh, Jenar, það kom í ljós í síðustu viku að lykilfólk í teyminu hans Mueller er búið að vera vanhæft í langan tíma. Ekki bara einn heldur nokkrir aðilar í teyminu með allt, allt, alltof mikla tengingu við Hillary Clinton og rannsóknina á henni, Demókrata og co fyrir utan skilaboðin sem fóru á milli. Hefur þú kynnt þér þetta? Og btw það sem ég hef séð hefur ekki komið frá Breitbart (les það aldrei, rusl eftir að Andrew Breitbart lést) né heldur Fox (horfi ekki á þá stöð).

PS: Ég er ekki að segja að Mueller sé vanhæfur á nokkurn hátt heldur lykilfólk í teyminu. FYI. Held að Mueller sjálfur sé yfir allan vafa hafinn í þessu máli.

Yebb.. grunsemdir mínar sem vöknuðu þarna í kringum 2000 í þessum raunveruleikaþáttum hans hafa verið staðfestar síðan og það all ýtarlega.

Hér er grein á Newsweek sem er nokkuð holl lesning. Horror saga hans í viðskiptum slær í raun allt út sem ég hef lesið um slíka "snillinga" þessi 10 dæmi sem ég kom með bara baun í hafið.

Tek það fram að þessi grein í Newsweek væri ekki til sem opinbert plagg, ef staðreyndirnar sem þarna koma fram væru ekki sannar. Trömp hefur aðgang að slíkum lögfræðingageri að hálfa væri nóg. Flestar upplýsingarnar koma frá Dóm-skjölum þar sem kallinn er með sitt annað heimilsfang.. enda virðist loða við hann allskonar svik og lygar.. hvort sem hann er í raunveruleikaþætti, sem "fjármálasnillingur" eða forseti. 

Hér eru nokkrar málsgreinar úr þessari grein:

Quote

Lost contracts, bankruptcies, defaults, deceptions and indifference to investors—Trump’s business career is a long, long list of such troubles, according to regulatory, corporate and court records, as well as sworn testimony and government investigative reports. Call it the art of the bad deal, one created by the arrogance and recklessness of a businessman whose main talent is self-promotion.

He is also pretty good at self-deception, and plain old deception. Trump is willing to claim success even when it is not there, according to his own statements. “I’m just telling you, you wouldn’t say that you're failing,” he said in a 2007 deposition when asked to explain why he would give an upbeat assessment of his business even if it was in trouble. “If somebody said, ‘How you doing?’ you're going to say you're doing good.” Perhaps such dissembling is fine in polite cocktail party conversation, but in the business world it’s called lying.

Hann hefur ítrekað viðurkennt að hann sé lygahundur og finnist það bara "bösiness" að kunna að ljúga vel.

Þessi málsgrein nokkuð í takt við Yngymynd.. göts fílingur er það kallinn.

Quote

And while Trump is quick to boast that his purported billions prove his business acumen, his net worth is almost unknowable given the loose standards and numerous outright misrepresentations he has made over the years. In that 2007 deposition, Trump said he based estimates of his net worth at times on “psychology” and “my own feelings.” But those feelings are often wrong—in 2004, he presented unaudited financials to Deutsche Bank while seeking a loan, claiming he was worth $3.5 billion. The bank concluded Trump was, to say the least, puffing; it put his net worth at $788 million, records show. (Trump personally guaranteed $40 million of the loan to his company, so Deutsche coughed up the money. He later defaulted on that commitment.)

Pabbastrákur.

Quote

Even with those advantages, a few of Trump’s initial deals for his father were busts, based on the profits. His first project was revitalizing the Swifton Village apartment complex in Cincinnati, which his father had purchased for $5.7 million in 1962. After Trump finished his work, they sold the complex for $6.75 million, which, while appearing to be a small return, was a loss; in constant dollars, the apartment buildings would have had to sell for $7.9 million to have earned an actual profit. Still, Trump happily boasted about his supposed success with Swifton Village and about his surging personal wealth.

Hann tekur við spilavíti og setur það lóðrétt á hausinn.. 

Quote

At 1:40 p.m. on October 10, 1989, the four-blade rotor and tail rotor broke off of a helicopter flying above the pine woodlands near Forked River, New Jersey. The craft plunged 2,800 feet to the ground, killing all five passengers. Among them were three of Trump’s top casino executives.

With the best managers of his casinos dead, Trump for the first time took responsibility for running the day-to-day operations in Atlantic City. His mercurial and belligerent style made a quick impact—some top executives walked, unwilling to put up with his eccentricities, while Trump booted others. The casinos were struggling so badly that Trump was sweating whether a few big winners might pull him under. He once hovered over a baccarat table at the Plaza, anxiously watching a Tokyo real estate tycoon who had won big at the casino in the past; executives at the casino were humiliated, since Trump was signaling that he was frightened customers might win. (The Japanese tycoon lost that night.) By early 1990, as financial prospects at the casinos worsened, Trump began badmouthing the executives who had died, laying blame on them, although the cause of his problems was the precarious, debt-laden business structure he had built.

Í raun ættu menn bara að lesa þessa grein.. helst með opnum huga!

Ég held satt best að segja að þetta sé ekki Trump að þakka. Miklu frekar þeirri staðreynd að þakka að fjölmiðlar hafa svo hrikalega misst traust fólksins að þegar fjölmiðlar fjalla um Moore þá heldur fólkið "Moore er saklaus, þau eru að ljúga" og kjósa þennan (meinta) pervert.

Ég er búinn að vera að blása um þessa lélegu fjölmiðlar með Trump Derangement Syndrome af háu stigi í 1,5 ár og voila, hér erum við komin. Þetta er það sem gerist þegar fjölmiðlar missa traust almennings.

Ertu að mótmæla Emerson? Það er mat þeirra að það sé Trump að þakka, eftir síðasta rally hans í Penescola að Moore hafi tekið flug í skoðanakönnunum!!
