Another Wealthy Mar-A-Lago Member Gets Rewarded By Trump Administration…

01) Another Wealthy Mar-A-Lago Member Gets Rewarded By Trump Administration


“Well, pretty soon we’re likely to end up with the fourth wealthy member or Mar-a-Lago to be nominated by the president, or actually should I said, chosen by the president to be an ambassador from the United States to another country. According to the Palm Beach Daily News, woman by the name of Lana Marks, who happens to be a paying Mar-a-Lago member, is next in line. The president is actually considering appointing this woman to be the new ambassador to South Africa.

South Africa has not had an ambassador from the United States since 2016, and according to reports, Donald Trump thinks Mrs. Marks is the perfect person to fill that position because she was actually born in South Africa. Aside from that, she literally has no credentials whatsoever that would qualify her for this position. In fact, she actually has quite a few legal problems in the country of South Africa right now, as there is a bitter feud over the estate of her mother, between her and her siblings, and things aren’t looking so good for Miss. Marks.

Nonetheless, this woman whose made a fortune designing designer handbags that go for about six figures a piece, could be the fourth person from Mar-a-Lago to be nominated or appointed, whatever, for an ambassadorship from the US. Now so far, we already have one, that is Robin Bernstein, ambassador to the Dominican Republic. He’s actually one of the people who helped found Mar-a-Lago with Donald Trump. He got rewarded with an ambassadorship. Two others were chosen for ambassadorships, but ended up withdrawing their names and declining the opportunity to do it.

But if Miss. Marks does get this appointment, that would be the fourth from Mar-a-Lago chosen to go and represent the United States in another country. And the only thing any of these people have in common, other than having no experience or credentials to serve in these positions, is that they’re all paying members of Mar-a-Lago.

So for all those Republicans out there who say that Donald Trump is draining the swamp, or that he’s making America great again, please, please, start looking at what’s actually happening in this country. If you don’t have a butt load of money, Donald Trump doesn’t care about you. If he cannot use you or your money to his own advantage, he doesn’t care about you. If you’ve been a good, loyal customer of Donald Trump, even being a member of one of his clubs, he’s going to reward you in the best way he knows possible, which unfortunately also includes helping to destroy the reputation that the United States currently has.

That’s what’s happening with these Mar-a-Lago picks. That’s what’s happening with Donald Trump going down to Mar-a-Lago and asking people that show up there, how he should run the VA. I mean, that is actually an ongoing investigation as to why Donald Trump is asking Mar-a-Lago members how to run the VA, and getting their input on it. We did a story about that a few months ago. But nonetheless, Trump has made it clear, he has no interest in running this government the way that it should be run. And instead, he wants to uses his current position of power to repay some of his friends. And in fact, pay them more so that he can guarantee that they will continue paying him once he lives office.

That is what this entire presidency has been about from day one, and all those Republicans out there still saying that he’s draining the swamp, or that he’s making America great again, you’re living in an alternative reality and you need to wake up and see what’s actually happening with this administration.

Dozens More Brett Kavanaughs Are Getting Confirmed To Lifetime Appointments Each Month…

01) Dozens More Brett Kavanaughs Are Getting Confirmed To Lifetime Appointments Each Month


“Now that Brett Kavanaugh’s name has disappeared from the headlines, at least for the moment, Democrats have stopped caring about the entire court system here, in the United States.

I say that because, just last week, we had Democrats in the Senate cut yet another deal with Mitch McConnell to send 15 more Trump-picked judges to the benches throughout the country for a lifetime. A couple weeks before that, they sent another 11 on a fast track because of a deal they made with Mitch McConnell.

Both instances were due to the fact that Democrats just wanted to get home for the weekend so they could go campaign if they were running for reelection. The rest of them, I guess, just wanted a little bit more time of. So, they fast tracked these horrible corporate judges, and now they all have lifetime appointments to benches throughout this country.

Here’s the thing: They’re all Brett Kavanaughs. Maybe they don’t have the allegations against them that Kavanaugh had of sexual assault, but in terms of their beliefs of what they will do to the judiciary, all of these people are Brett Kavanaugh. Every single one of them.

Here’s a good one that Esquire recently just did a little piece on. Her name is Allison Jones Rushing. Ms. Rushing was a part of a group, it’s an anti-LGBTQ group, called the Alliance Defending Freedom. If you’re not familiar with them, go take a look at the Southern Poverty Law Center’s profile of them, because they have been listed as a hate group because of their animosity and bigotry towards the LGBTQ community.

This woman was right there with them, and she’s gonna be on the bench for a lifetime. Oh, and here’s the kicker: She’s 36 years old. This woman could be on a federal bench for, what, 40 years? 50, maybe, depending on her lifestyle. 50 possible years for one person, and the Democrats already fast tracked 26 on top of the more than 25 that Trump had already put forward earlier this year that made it through.

So, we’re over 50 for the year, not including Brett Kavanaugh. More than 50 Brett Kavanaughs serving lifetime appointments in federal courts, district courts, appellate courts, everywhere. They may not be as high profile as the US Supreme Court. They may not be as powerful most of the time, but at the end of the day, that’s where most of the laws in this country are finalized.

That’s where most of the court decisions are finalized, at that appellate level, the federal court level. Most cases don’t go to the Supreme Court; most cases are gonna end with people like Allison Jones Rushing or any of the other people that have been put on federal benches for the next 30, 40, possibly 50 or more years.

Where’s the Democratic outrage on this? That’s what’s making me so angry here. Our entire judiciary, not just the Supreme Court, has been remade under Donald Trump, who is appointing and getting judges approved at a rate faster than any other president really has.

I know we’ve set a lot, “Trump hasn’t accomplished anything,” but that sure as hell is something he did accomplish, and it’s not anything that any of us should be happy about. He has remade the entire court system here, in the United States, and he still has 100 plus more seats to fill.

Twitter Purges 1,500 Pro-Trump Accounts For Spreading Wrong Election Date…

01) Twitter Purges 1,500 Pro-Trump Accounts For Spreading Wrong Election Date


“Twitter recently purged more than 1,500 fake accounts that were set up by a pro-Trump group in order to confuse liberals about election day this year. These accounts had been spreading information that included the wrong date for the election hoping to prevent liberals from showing up on the correct day. This is a good move by Twitter, and the company needs to continue to purge fake accounts spreading false information, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.

Last weekend Twitter suspended more than 1,500 fake accounts on their website. Because those accounts were actually spreading incorrect information about when election day actually is this year. They were out there saying that election day was November 7th, which is Wednesday. When in reality it’s November 6th, the Tuesday.

Twitter linked these fake accounts back to a pro-Trump group that they believe started on Reddit. And they came up with the idea, allegedly as a joke, to create these fake twitter accounts and go out there and try to confuse the liberals and tell them that they’re supposed to vote on Wednesday instead of on Tuesday.

Now we have seen this kind of stupid propaganda propping up on social media for years now. Usually it is meant as a joke. You’ll see the thing, don’t forget, Democrats vote on Wednesday. Republicans vote on Tuesday. Or sometimes vise versa. We’ve seen it go the other way as well. But here’s the thing good on Twitter for actually doing something about this and stopping the spread of this nonsensical propaganda.

You know, we have enough problems in this country as it is. Without having to deal with these little proud boys on the internet who think they’re so funny trying to trick liberals and making them try to vote on Wednesday after the polls have closed and the elections over.

Here’s the thing Republicans, Democrats aren’t as stupid as you are. I mean, not all of them are the brightest out there but as a whole really not as dumb as Republicans. So your little trick probably wasn’t gonna work to begin with.

But this is what social media outlets need to be working on, you know, they need to stop banning these groups out there trying to showcase police brutality which is happening at an alarming rate on Facebook. And they need to focus more on the propaganda that’s coming out because most of it is coming from right here in the United States. It’s misinformation and it’s damaging information that actually does threaten the vitality of our election process.

So, again, kudos to Twitter for taking the correct step here. You’ve got a lot more work to do though. There’s a lot of fake accounts spreading fake information trying to disrupt the political discourse in this country. And I’m not talking about other countries coming in and doing this creating fake accounts. I’m talking about the ones right here in the United States on both sides of the aisle. We see this happening too much. It’s poisoning the political discourse. It’s creating havoc in an area where there shouldn’t be havoc. Misinformation. The real fake news out there. Not the stuff the president talks about but the actual fake news being spread by these little idiots online. That needs to be put to rest. And these social media outlets are the only ones who can do that. But in order to do it, they actually have to put forth a little bit of effort to help clean up the platforms that they created. That they’ve also allowed to grow completely out of control.”
