Trumpy The FRAUDSTER!!!

Recommended Posts

June 7, 2016 - "A ruling by New York's highest court in a fraud case against former American International Group Inc (AIG.N) Chief Executive Maurice "Hank" Greenberg could affect the state's case against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and his defunct Trump University.


The New York Court of Appeals ruled on Thursday that state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman could seek to recoup millions of dollars in bonus payments to Greenberg using the legal remedy called disgorgement.


Unlike damages, which are used to compensate victims' losses, disgorgement requires a defendant to give back gains obtained from unlawful means. The ruling means that Schneiderman can go after $5 million he says Trump personally pocketed from the Trump University real-estate seminar venture.


"It doesn't help him," Jeffrey Goldman, Trump's lawyer in the New York case, said on Monday of the Greenberg ruling. But Goldman said Trump expected to win the case and could also try to limit the amount subject to disgorgement, such as by arguing that most of it was earned outside of New York.


According to the state's 2013 lawsuit against Trump, filed in state court in Manhattan, Trump University was an unlicensed, illegal operation that bilked students of up to $35,000 each between 2005 and 2011. Two proposed class actions in California make similar allegations."

June 9, 2016 - "On Thursday, USA Today published an in-depth investigation into Donald Trump's 3,500 lawsuits from the last 30 years that revealed yet another area of inconsistency for the presumptive GOP nominee: paying his employees.


In the last three decades, USA Today found that Trump has faced at least 60 lawsuits from people accusing him of "failing to pay them for their work," and more than 200 mechanics liens filed by contractors and employees against Trump allege that he owes them money. On top of that, Trump's companies have been cited 24 times since 2005 for violating the Fair Labor Standards act by "failing to pay overtime or minimum wage," USA Today reports.


Trump claims that he has only ever shorted workers "when somebody does a bad job." "Let's say that they do a job that's not good, or a job they didn't finish, or a job that was way late," Trump said. "I'll deduct from their contract, absolutely. That's what the country should be doing."


Interestingly enough, those "bad" jobs often didn't stop Trump from hiring those same workers again."





Gee.....whatta great way to cut costs!!!!

June 2, 2016 - "In his most recent financial disclosure statement, Donald Trump notes he has billions of dollars in assets. But the presumptive GOP nominee also has a tremendous load of debt that includes five loans each over $50 million. (The disclosure form, which presidential candidates must submit, does not compel candidates to reveal the specific amount of any loans that exceed $50 million, and Trump has chosen not to provide details.) Two of those megaloans are held by Deutsche Bank, which is based in Germany but has US subsidiaries. And this prompts a question that no other major American presidential candidate has had to face: What are the implications of the chief executive of the US government being in hock for $100 million (or more) to a foreign entity that has tried to evade laws aimed at curtailing risky financial shenanigans, that was recently caught manipulating markets around the world and that attempts to influence the US government?


Trumps disclosure form lists 16 loans from 11 different lenders, totaling at least $335 million, and the aggregate amount is likely much more. Deutsche Bank is clearly his favorite lender, and Trump’s financial empire has become largely dependent on his relationship with this major player on Wall Street and the global markets. The German bank has lent him at least $295 million for two of his signature projects. In 2012, Deutsche provided Trump with $125 million to help him buy Trump National Doral golf course. Last year, it handed Trump a $170 million line of credit for his new hotel project on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC."

June 29, 2016 - "Donald Trump doesnt have the street cred to be a populist, President Barack Obama said Wednesday, opening a new line of attack against the Republican businessman.


Trump’s rhetoric might qualify as nativism or xenophobia, but the real measure of populism means helping the little guy, Obama told reporters. The president argued that he – and maybe Sen. Bernie Sanders -- are the real populists by that measure.

“Somebody who labels us versus them or engages in rhetoric about how we’re gonna look after ourselves and take it to the other guy, that’s not the definition of populism,” Obama said. Sorry.”

Toward the end of the news conference, Obama went off on what he acknowledged was a “rant,” encouraging people to look up the definition of the word “populist.” It’s a term that has frequently been used to describe Trump’s appeal, especially to downscale white voters.


“Somebody else who has never shown any regard for workers” and “who has worked against” them, Obama said, “they don’t suddenly become a populist because they say something controversial in order to win votes. That’s not the measure of populism. That’s nativism or xenophobia. Or worse. Or it’s just cynicism.”


Obama continued, “Where’ve they been, have they been on the front lines?”


Obama said that he’s the real populist, pointing to his advocacy for giving all American children “the same opportunities that I had,” as well as for a more progressive tax system and “workers being able to have a collective voice.”

People To Pose As References; Lying a HUUUUUUGE Plus!!!


July 2, 2016 - "Donald Trump is turning to his family, sports figures and business leaders to fill speaking slots at the Republican National Convention later this month as scores of prominent Republican leaders CONTINUE to refuse to line up behind their controversial nominee-to-be.


Trump announced Friday that his wife and children "are all going to be speaking" at the nominating convention that kicks off in just over two weeks.
And the real estate mogul has also promised to add sports figures and other non-politicians who are supporting him to the roster of convention speakers, which would set the 2016 convention apart from past conventions packed with current and former elected officials.
The unconventional programming, which Trump has said will include a "winners' night," comes as his campaign and the Republican National Committee are facing an unusual problem unseen in past conventions: a lack of interest in speaking slots from many party elders and rising stars."

Maybe Trumpy should postpone his candidacy....until he can produce a "clean" tax-return. He should be able to work-out SOMETHING, by 2020!

Trump will have a powerful one two punch in the jaw after the election: the humiliation of LOSING and then his trial for defrauding many.


At the VERY least.....he's in the process of exposing himself (to his business competitors), as not-much-more than an ill-educated bullshit-artist.

It's gonna be really interesting what this campaign does to his business-interests.....long-term.....especially when more-and-more people are aware o' his questionable wealth.

July 22, 2016 - "Donald Trump didn't mention taxes that much in his acceptance speech of the GOP presidential nomination, but his assertion that Americans pay among the highest taxes in the world is not accurate.


That's according to the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget and others.


"As a share of the economy, the United States is nowhere close to the 'highest-taxed country in the world' and does not raise nearly as much tax revenue as other developed countries, many of which are in Europe," the group said in a blog post Friday.


The CRS noted that cutting the top corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 25 percent would give a short-term boost the economy, but only by less than two-tenths of 1 percent of total output. Such a cut would also be expensive, leaving a hole in the federal budget of $1.2 trillion to $1.5 trillion over the next 10 years, the CRS reported.


Earlier in the campaign, Trump proposed making up lost revenues from tax cuts on individuals and corporations by taxing the huge pile of offshore corporate profits on the books of American companies seeking to avoid paying U.S. taxes.


But Trump's numbers don't add up, according to an analysis by the conservative Tax Foundation. Even after factoring in the potential economic growth that might come from lower taxes, the group's recent analysis estimated a $10 trillion budget shortfall over 10 years from Trump's plan.


Without massive spending cuts, that shortfall would likely have to be paid for with borrowing, further raising the mounting pile of Treasury debt outstanding. The added interest on that debt would further add to the budget shortfall, the Tax Foundation analysis found."

The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach.
