Donald Trump’s ‘big reveal’
against Pres. Barack Obama

WTVR (CBS), by Alix Bryan,

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 10/24/2012 12:39:16 PM

For days Donald Trump teased ahead to a big reveal about President Barack Obama, saying his announcement would be made with the best interest of the United States of America in mind. Basically, the announcement, made at noon, comes down to the birth certificate controversy and question of Obama’s college records. If Pres. Obama releases his college records and his passport records, then Trump says he will give a $5 million check to a charity. Trumps says he will release the check within an hour of receiving the records. The caveat, he says, is that they have to be submitted by Oct. 31.

Nice way to put it in Obama's face. Romney and Ryan and campaign reps should withhold comment, and just let it hang there.

What a blow-hard. He never had anything. All he's doing is distracting from the campaign that Romney is winning.

Crawl back in the hole, Donald!

Anyone who ever thought that Donald Trump was anything more than a Carnival Barker needs to have his head examined. This is a joke, unless of course he already has the records and is going to release them himself on November 1.

I'm glad that Trump was smarter than to use the divorce papers. I'm glad that he reminds us that the controversies regarding NerØbama's records have not been resolved. Many of us have mixed feelings about The Donald, as many had mixed feelings about Ross Perot. Perot was labeled 'crazy', but what he argued proved absolutely correct and on target. Let's see how Mr. Trump's arguments hold up when the truth is finally revealed years from now.

Ridiculous. Even if Zero "released" them, they would be cheezy forgeries like the fake 'Certification of Live Birth' they made up. The media is so crooked on this that they won't even look into the clearly forged document. They would never do anything except "validate" whatever lies they put out there.

I think this is not so bad. Many people who support Obama do not know that his records are hidden. This gets the word out that O has done everything in his power to keep them out of sight.They will wonder, why? Trump is not such a bad egg, guys. He is on our side.

I don't know guys, I think Trump already knows Obama went by Barry Soetero during those days and could not have traveled to Pakistan unless he had a dual citizenship or foreign passport.

As for his grades, I think Obama probably has very good grades, as did his Father before he was thrown out of Harvard for sexually harassing white girls.

If the media had done their job, this offer could never be made. This points out what's wrong with the media and the fact that we still don't know much about Obama's past.

This will get buried by the media even faster than it will be ignored by Obama because it points out that the MSM is just an arm of the Dimocrat party.

Maybe cleaver by half but it does keep the ball up in the air. Does he have the records and will release them after Oct. 31 if BHO does bite?
The campaign is coming down to who do you trust and the D has illustrated that BHO has something to hide.
Trump said it would be a game changer and this isn't by a mile so does he have something more? Maybe. But it keeps some guessing which makes some uncertain and it may sway a few.

I'll give it to the Donald that at least he is putting his money where his mouth is.

Of course, this is all about Donald's ego and needing a steady dose of publicity. That won't cost him anything, since you know N∅bama won't take him up on his offer.

But at least we get a little comic relief in these last couple of very stressful weeks...

There is no sleaze to this,it's just the Donald doing the work the MSM never did.

Maybe a few will think,"I didn't know that and why wouldn't he release his records?

I think Trump is a patriot.

College passport....my sweet butt !!! I am will put it out there that DONALD bought the EMAILS' release.

He couldn't "release" these, my guess legal reasons why he shouldn't have them. So they get released to the press and today Donald runs with this lame story.

Since only 2% of the voters are undecided, even after four debates, anything that might attract five additional votes for Romney and against Obama at this point could be a game changer.

Donald Trump's offer means that unless Obama agrees to Donald Trump's terms, voters will be reminded over the next week that Obama is so adamant about not divulging his personal records that he's willing to deny $5 million to worthy charities that could help American citizens in need -- and the voters will wonder why, and some will be more reluctant to trust Obama and to vote for him.

And, of course, Donald Trump will not be a shrinking violet about reminding the country every day about what a Scrooge Obama is for declaring ''Bah Humbug!'' to $5 million worth of help for Americans, when all Obama has to do to allow his charitable gift to be used is present his personal records, which every president has routinely done for decades.

The Obamabot flamers trying to villify Trump need to focus on why their Messiah feels the need to hide records. No one, spends resources like he does in order to hide facts that would obviously be fatal to his fraudulent status without reason.

Ultimately, the facts will come out. When they do, the Democrat party will be history.

Not sure this is good for us. The media will use this to bump the very damaging Behghazi revelations off the radar screen and fill thier "news" stories with "It's just Trump acting like an idiot" stories instead. I think the Gloria Allred accusations are intended to do the same thing. The media is deparate to talk about anything but Benghazi and this gives them another excuse.

Any bad news is good news when it comes to Obama. Trump can look strange to people, but it does put more smoke around Obama's legitimacy. And that is always good. He doesn't represent the Tea Party or the GOP, so he's doing us all a favor.

Vote to Hold Lois Lerner in Contempt of

Breitbart Instablog, by John Sexton    Original Article

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee announced yesterday that it will hold a vote to decide whether former I.R.S. employee Lois Lerner is in contempt of Congress on Thursday, April 10th. Lerner has twice been called before Congress to testify about her involvement in the inappropriate targeting of conservative 501(c)(4) groups for extra scrutiny. On both occasions Lerner asserted her 5th amendment right not to testify. Rep. Issa and other Republicans on the Committee have maintained that Lerner waived her right not to testify when, during her first appearance before the Committee back in 2013, she made a speech proclaiming her

The Obama administration has made it increasingly difficult for Congress and inspectors general to uncover government misdeeds and access information in various agencies, according to recent congressional testimony and reports. On Thursday, Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz testified before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing that Attorney General Eric Holder stonewalled his investigation of the “Operation Fast and Furious” gunwalking scandal. Mr. Horowitz also said his office has been stymied in other investigations of the Justice Department because of the Obama administration’s interpretation of access laws, which essentially requires investigators to ask department heads for permission to investigate them. “For a review

Hypersensitive students and professors all over the country are about to score another victory for political correctness if they succeed in their mission to normalize the use of “trigger warnings,” which are intended to protect people from taking part in class discussions and media that might offend them. Trigger warnings are most commonly attached to online news articles and blog posts. They warn readers that the post contains specific, offensive content. An article about sexual violence, for instance, might come with a trigger warning for rape victims. The idea is to prevent post traumatic stress. But censorship-inclined activists are now eager to

There’s a scene in P.G. Wodehouse’s Right Ho, Jeeves where Bertie Wooster receives a telegram from his fearsome Aunt Dahlia that reads: “Come at once.” Bertie is puzzled. He reflects and agonizes and sends several follow-up telegrams requesting more lucid instruction. Finally he shows the cable to his perceptive manservant Jeeves and asks him to translate. “I think Mrs. Travers wants you to come at once, sir,” Jeeves says. Sometimes it seems like the liberal base of the Democratic Party has a similar problem.

A Michigan mother of five says that the crushing new costs associated with Obamacare have imperiled her family’s financial future and will burden the household with thousands of dollars in unexpected expenses. The uptick in costs that Shannon Wendt and her family will face in the coming years under President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act will strain the family’s finances and force both Shannon and her husband to work harder to bridge the fiscal gap.

McSpedon and his team of high-tech contractors had come in from Costa Rica and Nicaragua, Washington and Denver. Their mission: to launch a messaging network that could reach hundreds of thousands of Cubans. To hide the network from the Cuban government, they would set up a byzantine system of front companies using a Cayman Islands bank account, and recruit unsuspecting executives who would not be

Supreme Court Strikes Down
Overall Political Donation Cap
New York Times, by Adam Liptak    Original Article

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Wednesday continued its abolition of limits on election spending, striking down a decades-old cap on the total amount any individual can contribute to federal candidates in a two-year election cycle. The ruling, issued near the start of a campaign season, will very likely increase the role money plays in American politics. The 5-to-4 decision, with the court’s more conservative members in the majority, echoed Citizens United, the 2010 decision that struck down limits on independent campaign spending by corporations and unions. Wednesday’s decision seemed to alter campaign finance law in subtle but important ways, notably by limiting

Earlier in the week, Twitter was ablaze with a debate over Obamacare and public opinion: Was the Washington Post/ABC News poll purporting to show the law´s approval slightly above water an outlier, or the beginning of a trend? I argued the former, citing a fresh CBS News survey that aligned with previous negative polling. The latest Quinnipiac poll should settle the debate. It pegs President Obama´s approval rating underwater at 42/50, with Obamacare clocking in at 41/55. A few additional findings: (1) Voters split roughly evenly on the generic Congressional ballot, with independents leaning toward the GOP by seven points.

Employers Say Obamacare Will Cost

Obamacare will cost large companies between $4,800 and $5,900 more per employee and add hundreds of millions to their overhead, according to a new survey. The American Health Policy Institute conducted a confidential survey of 100 large employers—those with 10,000 or more employees—asking what costs they expect to incur from Obamacare over the next decade. Factoring in the health care law’s added mandates, fees, and regulatory burdens, employers anticipate cost hikes between $163 million and $200 million in 2016, a 4.3 percent increase. By 2023, employers will be paying 8.4 percent more than “what they would otherwise be spending” for

Democratic lawmakers and campaign finance reform advocates quickly bashed Wednesday’s Supreme Court decision to strike down total limits on individual campaign contributions, warning of future corruption in elections. Meanwhile, Republicans largely cheered the ruling from the narrowly divided court, which found it unconstitutional to impose caps on the aggregate amounts that one person can donate to campaigns, parties and political action committees. Calling himself “all for freedom,” Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday commended the ruling, saying “donors ought to have the freedom to give what they want to give."

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon.

Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

At a press conference to push legislation to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) criticized industrialists David and Charles Koch, calling them “shadow billionaires” who use their wealth to “rig our political system.” Reid’s sharp comments come on a day when the Wall Street Journal published a commentary written by Charles Koch, in which he described the brothers’ decision to get involved in politics to preserve the individual freedom and free markets that he said are the pillars of the American republic. “These two men are a pair of shadow billionaires spending
