“The Donald J Trump Campaign for President, which has set a historic record in the Republican primary having received almost 14 million votes, has today announced that Corey Lewandowski will no longer be working with the campaign,” Campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in a statement on Monday. “The campaign is grateful to Corey for his hard work and dedication and we wish him the best in the future,” she added. Lewandowski was reportedly informed of his dismissal on Monday morning and surprised at Trump’s decision. "Lewandowski and Manafort reportedly struggled over the control of the campaign over the past few months. According to a campaign source, Lewandowski also had a conflict with the campaign spokeswoman that Ivanka, Trump’s daughter, did not like. Another sources also said that Lewandowski had clashed with Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, in recent weeks."

Trump is doing an interview that will air on Bill O'Reilly's show. Lewandowski said he did not know WHY he was fired. Nobody gave him a reason? CNN reports the final straw was Eric Trump asking for him to be fired, after Ivanka had been unhappy with him due to alleged conflicts with her husband.

Remarks: We know the Trump Empire is a dynasty and all the children work for the organization, but seriously, should they wield their power to get him fired if he did not do anything wrong, just because they disliked him? Maybe that's how it is in all family run businesses. I cannot imagine what Capitol Hill will be like if he gets in the White House, and has to deal with Senators and Congressmen who do not agree with him and he cannot fire them. His Cabinet will be the ones who get the wrath!

Oh boy, it was a boardroom for Lewandowski

http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2016/06/trump-kids-ousted-corey-lewand owski.html

At around 9:30 Monday morning, Donald Trump and his adult children gathered for a regular strategy meeting at Trump Tower. Also present were senior staff, including Corey Lewandowski, the campaign's embattled manager. With Trump coming off one of the worst weeks of his campaign — a stretch that included racist attacks on a federal judge, renewed calls in the wake of the Orlando massacre to ban Muslim immigrants, and sinking poll numbers — the candidate's children, who have been involved in strategy from the beginning, saw an opening to achieve a shared goal: Fire Lewandowski.

According to two sources briefed on the events, the meeting was a setup. Shortly after it began, the children peppered Lewandowski with questions, asking him to explain the campaign's lack of infrastructure. "They went through the punch list. 'Where are we with staffing? Where are we with getting the infrastructure built?'" one source explained. Their father grew visibly upset as he heard the list of failures. Finally, he turned to Lewandowski and said, "What's your plan here?"

Lewandowski responded that he wanted to leak Trump's vice-president pick.

And with that, Lewandowski was out Shortly after the meeting, Lewandowski was escorted out of the building by Trump security.

i still say Drumpf has no desire to be President. This is all about Branding. Firing this guy is all about keeping others onboard more than about he was a problem.....to continue the narrative of Drumpf is a great man.

It wouldn't matter if he hired a reincarnated Albert Einstein to run his campaign. Stubborn Sarah Trump wouldn't listen to any of his advice anyway because Trump is smarter than Einstein or anyone else. Trump listens to nobody but Trump. He has the greatest brain ever! HUGE!!!

Trump has $1.3 million on hand on May 31st. Presidential campaigns with more cash on hand than Trump on May 31st:

Ben Carson ($1.7M)
Ted Cruz ($6.8M)
Bernie Sanders ($9.2M)

Donald Trump Starts Summer Push With Crippling Money Deficit
Donald J. Trump enters the general election campaign laboring under the worst financial and organizational disadvantage of any major party nominee in recent history, placing both his candidacy and his party in political peril.

Mr. Trump began June with just $1.3 million in cash on hand, a figure more typical for a campaign for the House of Representatives than the White House. He trailed Hillary Clinton, who raised more than $28 million in May, by more than $41 million, according to reports filed late Monday night with the Federal Election Commission.

He has a staff of around 70 people — compared with nearly 700 for Mrs. Clinton — suggesting only the barest effort toward preparing to contest swing states this fall. And he fired his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, on Monday, after concerns among allies and donors about his ability to run a competitive race.

From the ever-expanding "Trump Tells It Like It Is - Not" files...

Speaking to a group of evangelical Christian leaders, Donald Trump claimed there’s “nothing out there” about Hillary Clinton’s religion even though “she’s been in the public eye for years and years.” That’s inaccurate. Clinton’s religious practice as a Methodist has been well-documented and widely reported.

Trump’s comments came during a closed-to-the-press meeting with evangelical leaders in New York City, but his comments were videotaped by one of the faith leaders and posted on the internet. The video begins with Trump saying, “… don’t know anything about Hillary in terms of religion.”

“Now, she’s been in the public eye for years and years, and yet there’s no — there’s nothing out there,” Trump continued. “There’s like nothing out there. It’s going to be an extension of Obama but it’s going to be worse, because with Obama you had your guard up. With Hillary you don’t, and it’s going to be worse.”

In fact, there is a lot “out there” about Clinton’s religion, and its influence on her world view, starting with her religious involvement as a child.

According to the Religious News Service, “As a girl, she was part of the guild that cleaned the altar at First United Methodist Church in Park Ridge, Ill. As a teen, she visited inner-city Chicago churches with the youth pastor, Don Jones, her spiritual mentor until his death in 2009.”

A Time magazine profile, which ran under the headline “Hillary Clinton: Anchored by Faith,” had this to say about Clinton’s early religious training:

Time, June 27, 2014: Clinton grew up attending First United Methodist Church of Park Ridge in Chicago, where she was confirmed in sixth grade. Her mother taught Sunday school, and Clinton was active in youth group, Bible studies and altar guild. On Saturdays during Illinois’s harvest season, she and others from her youth group would babysit children of nearby migrant workers.

The article notes that in college at Wellesley, “Clinton regularly read the Methodist Church’s Motive magazine,” that she and Bill Clinton were married by a Methodist minister, and that in 1993, she joined a women’s prayer group.

When Bill Clinton was president, the Clinton family regularly attended Washington’s Foundry United Methodist Church. Hillary Clinton spoke at the church’s 200 anniversary in September. In that address, she spoke about the Methodist churches she attended as a child, in college, in Arkansas when Bill Clinton was governor, and in Washington, D.C., when he served as president.

“In place after place after place,” Clinton said, “the Methodist church and my fellow Methodists have been a source of support, honest reflection and candid critique.”

During a presidential forum in 2007, Clinton said that “a lot of the talk about and advertising about faith doesn’t come naturally to me.” She said that faith “is something that — you know, I keep thinking of the Pharisees and all of Sunday school lessons and readings that I had as a child. But I think your — your faith guides you every day. Certainly, mine does. But, at those moments in time when you’re tested, it — it is absolutely essential that you be grounded in your faith.”

CNN noted that in May 2015, Clinton impressed a voter in a bakery after she cited and discussed Corinthians 13 on the spot.

In an interview with the New York Times in 2014, Clinton cited the Bible as “the biggest influence” on her thinking. “I was raised reading it, memorizing passages from it and being guided by it,” she said. “I still find it a source of wisdom, comfort and encouragement.”

As a senator, she participated in weekly Senate prayer breakfasts. The New York Times noted that she was also once a Sunday school teacher.

That article goes on to say: “In a brief quiz about her theological views, Mrs. Clinton said she believed in the resurrection of Jesus, though she described herself as less sure of the doctrine that being a Christian is the only way to salvation. As for how literally to interpret the Bible, she takes a characteristically centrist view.”

Although Clinton rarely speaks about her religious faith on the campaign trail, she did — in length — when a woman asked her about it at a campaign rally in Iowa in January. Clinton began, “I am a Christian. I am a Methodist.” Here is some, but not all, of the rest of her answer.

Clinton, Jan. 25: I am a Christian. I am a Methodist. I have been raised Methodist. I feel very grateful for the instructions and support I received starting in my family but through my church, and I think that any of us who are Christian have a constantly, constant, conversation in our own heads about what we are called to do and how we are asked to do it, and I think it is absolutely appropriate for people to have very strong convictions and also, though, to discuss those with other people of faith. Because different experiences can lead to different conclusions about what is consonant with our faith and how best to exercise it. …

My study of the Bible, my many conversations with people of faith, has led me to believe the most important commandment is to love the Lord with all your might and to love your neighbor as yourself, and that is what I think we are commanded by Christ to do, and there is so much more in the Bible about taking care of the poor, visiting the prisoners, taking in the stranger, creating opportunities for others to be lifted up, to find faith themselves that I think there are many different ways of exercising your faith.

There is even an entire book devoted to Clinton’s faith, “God and Hillary Clinton: A Spiritual Life.” The author, Paul Kengor, executive director of the Center for Vision & Values at the conservative Grove City College, writes in the preface that “some things regarding Hillary Clinton and her faith are clear: Although no one can profess to know any individual’s heart and soul, there seems no question that Hillary is a sincere, committed Christian and has been since childhood.”

In an interview with Christianity Today, Kengor said that Clinton has often butted heads with conservative evangelical Christians on issues such as abortion, and that Clinton “walks step by step with the Methodist leadership into a very liberal Christianity. She is with them lockstep on almost all issues.”

“We do, in fact, know about Hillary’s religion,” Kengor wrote to us in an email. “In fact, we know enough about Hillary’s faith that I was able to write a 334-page book titled God and Hillary Clinton way back in 2007, and I’ve written dozens of articles and given numerous interviews on the subject since—and I’m not the only one. I think that what Donald Trump was telling us is that he knows nothing about Hillary’s faith. For me as a conservative, that doesn’t surprise me one bit, as I’ve noticed painfully and repeatedly that Donald Trump also knows nothing about conservatism.”

We could go on and on about the public treatment of Clinton’s faith. But suffice to say that when Trump says there’s “nothing out there” about Hillary Clinton’s religion, that’s just not so.

We should note that the Hill and others reported that Trump said, “we don’t know anything about Hillary in terms of religion.” The emphasis on “we” is ours.

Later in the day, David Muir of ABC’s “World News Tonight” asked Trump about his comments, and Trump responded, “I don’t know much about her.”

Trump said his comments were prompted by a question from someone at the event.

“Somebody asked me the question,” Trump said. “I didn’t bring it up. Somebody asked me the question. I said I don’t know much about her religion.”

Based on the tape, we couldn’t determine whether Trump said “we” don’t know anything about Clinton’s religion or “I” don’t know anything about her religion.

ABC News reported, “A source who attended the meeting said that no one asked about Clinton’s religion.” We couldn’t determine that either, based on the available video.

We reached out to E.W. Jackson, the man who posted the clip on Twitter, to see if he had a fuller version of Trump’s remarks, but we did not hear back from him. Jackson, a conservative religious leader, is president of the national organization Ministers Taking a Stand. Nonetheless, Trump’s comments extended beyond responding to what he, personally, knew about Clinton’s religion, to include the claim that despite being “in the public eye for years and years” there is “nothing out there” on Clinton’s religion.

It appears Donald Trump may have known about Epstein's predilections. Years ago in an interview with New York Magazine Trump said, "I've known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,'' Trump booms from a speakerphone. "He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it -- Jeffrey enjoys his social life."

Wow, I hope that he at least said that before Epstein was arrested.

Trump’s Attack on Clinton’s Character
Presumptive GOP nominee gets facts wrong on Benghazi, Middle East refugees, gifts from Brunei and more.

SUMMARY

Donald Trump’s once delayed, and much anticipated, speech on Hillary Clinton’s character, included numerous false and misleading statements:

Trump falsely claimed that U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens “was left helpless to die as Hillary Clinton soundly slept in her bed.” Two emails from Clinton show that she was awake after it was learned that Stevens had died in the attack on the diplomatic facility in Benghazi.

Trump misleadingly claimed that Clinton “accepted $58,000 in jewelry from the government of Brunei when she was secretary of state.” He didn’t mention that the gift was accepted on behalf of the United States, and that it was transferred to the General Services Administration.

Trump claimed without any evidence that Clinton “wants to spend hundreds of billions of dollars to settle Middle Eastern refugees in the United States.” The numbers don’t add up. The total refugee budget was $1.67 billion in fiscal 2016, so it is unlikely that Clinton could add “hundreds of billions” to the budget for refugee assistance.

Trump overstated his case when he claimed the U.S. “trade deficit with China soared 40 percent during Hillary Clinton’s time as secretary of state.” It went up 17 percent, and we note that trade is under the purview of the Commerce Department, not the State Department.

Trump blamed Clinton for the “disastrous strategy of announcing our departure from Iraq, handing large parts of the country over to ISIS and the ISIS killers.” The departure date was set by President George W. Bush. President Obama made the ultimate call to keep the scheduled departure date, not Clinton.

Trump falsely claimed that Clinton would “end virtually all immigration enforcement and thus create totally open borders for the United States.” Clinton supported a Senate immigration bill that would create a path to citizenship for those in the country illegally, but it also would have included large investments in border security.

Trump falsely claimed that the private server that Clinton used as secretary of state “was easily hacked by foreign governments.” Attempts were made to hack into Clinton’s server, but the identity of the hackers has not been determined and there has been no evidence to date that any of them were successful.

Trump falsely claimed that “Hillary Clinton’s State Department approved the transfer of 20 percent of America’s uranium holdings to Russia.” The transfer was approved by a committee headed by the Treasury Department and made up of nine voting members throughout government, including one from the State Department.

Trump claimed he was opposed to the Iraq war “before the war ever started.” There is no evidence of that.

Trump wrongly said that “real wages for our workers have not been raised for 18 years.” Average weekly earnings for production and non-supervisory employees are up 10 percent, adjusted for inflation and seasonal factors, over that time period.

Trump described the North American Free Trade Agreement as “Bill Clinton’s disastrous and totally disastrous NAFTA.” President Clinton signed the legislation to implement NAFTA, but the agreement itself was negotiated and signed by President George H. W. Bush.

Facts & truths seem to have a way of evading Trump. Amazing that he consistently beats the drum of calling Cruze and now HC liars. The various factchecks over time have shown Trump to be King Of The Hill on inaccuracy & fabrication.

Have never seen a candidate talk to his competition (Jeb, Marco, Cruze, & HC) like Trump does. Degrading, condescending, and labeling via nicknames seem a bit sophomorish for someone running for POTUS.

But what does one expect from the guy that referred to dating Ivanka if she wasn't his daughter? That's almost as good as the rest of his many zingers including his now repulsive statement about Megyn Kelly, "There was blood coming out of her whatever". Very becoming for a presidential candidate, but he's "Going to make America great again". What a dignified and classy guy Donald is.

You are right. But I don't see Trump as the problem. I can respect some Trump supporters who simply look past his ignorance because they believe the country needs toughness and a revived economy - whether Trump would actually deliver that is a whole different topic. But if someone told me they were supporting Trump for those reasons, and they simply ignore the circus sideshow b/c they see it as a necessary evil in the game of politics, I could respect that.

But I truly believe that an overwhelming majority of his voters are low-life, degenerate, dysfunctional, angry, hateful, ignorant people - the ones that come to his rally and threaten minorities. Those are the ones voting for the first time in their lives, simply because they hear someone be angry and ignorant, just like they are. And they tipped him to the nomination. The videos of these types of people are disturbing, and it has nothing to do with politics - they exist on all sides. But those videos are evidence of a broken society, broken homes, and a broken educational system. That should be a small percentage of any society, but it seems like there are enough of them in America to secure a nomination to a candidate such as Trump.

My priority moving forward is improving our educational system to make them the best in the world. Don't make all healthcare free, but quality mental health should be free and available everywhere with ease, or incorporated into our schools' curriculums. Peaceful homes and better education creates less crime, better health and therefore a better healthcare system free from the burden of treating lifestyle illnesses, better ideas, better choices, better leaders, etc.

Polk County is just down the road from where I live. Beautiful place. But, it's also where you go to show your kids wott happens when you screw your sister.

Edit - 96.7% white with a population of just over 16,000 and average income of $16,000. It's no cultural center.

Edit, Edit... Most recent Census Bureau data reports a per capita income of $20,000.

What is that like a couple hours from Knoxville? I worked on a dairy farm in White Pine in 1977/78. Doesn't seem from the census figures that the guy really needs the billboard. lol
