Trump’s “Tax Plan” is A Saudi-Style Family Heist by the Most Corrupt Ruling Clan in the World

In his first 100 days Trump has failed at everything but one initiative: he's been very successful at finding more corrupt ways to make money off the American presidency for his family members and pals than any American president- ever.

Trump's mantra like theirs seems to be: I'm in power to make a buck.“I like nepotism,” Trump told Larry King in 2006, the … [Read more...]

If he's crazy, what drove him nuts? I think several things may have: money, nasty racist parents, his warped genetic template... but in … [Read more...]

What’s The “Conservative” Response Been to the Rash of Fox News-Sexual Predators? Silence.
