Why The New Child Rape Case Filed Against Donald Trump Should Not Be Ignored



An anonymous “Jane Doe” filed a federal lawsuit against GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump last week, accusing him of raping her in 1994 when she was thirteen years old. The mainstream media ignored the filing.

If the Bill Cosby case has taught us anything, it is to not disregard rape cases against famous men. Serious journalists have publicly apologized for turning a blind eye to the Cosby accusers for over a decade, notwithstanding the large number of women who had come forward with credible claims. And now history is repeating itself.
...
No outsider can say whether Mr. Trump is innocent or guilty of these new rape charges. But we can look at his record, analyze the court filings here, and make a determination as to credibility - whether the allegations are believable enough for us to take them seriously and investigate them, keeping in mind his denial and reporting new facts as they develop.

I have done that. And the answer is a clear yes. These allegations are credible. They ought not be ignored. Mainstream media, I’m looking at you.

Color me skeptical. Unless an investigation uncovers other allegations or a history of things like this, I reserve my judgment. Not to say that I think he's a fine, upstanding citizen. He's a creep, but raping a 12-year old?

DIY Frame Shop - AmericanFrame.com

This site has some really pretty frames. I just bought this one. I had chosen another frame in mahogany but they were sold out. I am framing an old silver plate picture that my dad brought back from Spain. I cleaned it the other day, holding my breath that there wasn't any damage beneath the grime, and there wasn't - except for a couple of places where the plate is pitted, but it's still in beautiful shape after half a century. Including shipping it was less than $40, a fraction of what I would pay for the same frame at any local frame shop. Hopefully the quality will be good, as far as I can tell from the pictures it is:



Because of the angle of the light the wood looks lighter around the edges but it isn't, it's just the way the light is hitting the ridges. It looks old and I think it will go well with the pic...if not I can put the dog's picture in it.

And no, I don't get a commission.

A softer, gentler Donald Trump?

Donald Trump may be finally gearing up to do what many Republican leaders have hoped: soften his rhetoric and pivot to the center.

He hasn't done that yet. But there are growing signs that the presumptive Republican nominee is aiming to make his campaign more palatable to a general election audience.

His campaign is putting the finishing touches on a policy memo that would change his proposed ban on Muslim immigration to the United States. Instead of focusing the ban on Muslims, Trump would ban immigrants coming from countries with known terrorism links, training and equipment.

Meanwhile, he's eased off his hardline language calling for deporting all undocumented immigrants living in the U.S.

I don't think it will do him any good at this point. That ship has sailed...

Donald Trump Says US Robbed by 'Elite' He 'Used to Be' Part Of

Donald Trump announced a twist on his campaign slogan during an economic speech in Pennsylvania, saying that he has a plan to "Make America Wealthy Again" and claiming that the country was robbed by the "financial elite" of which he "used to be" part.

"The legacy of Pennsylvania steelworkers lives in the bridges, railways and skyscrapers that make up our great American landscape. But our workers' loyalty was repaid you know it better than anybody with betrayal," Trump said during the speech, at an aluminum plant.

"Our politicians have aggressively pursued a policy of globalization - moving our jobs, our wealth and our factories to Mexico and overseas," he added.

Trump repeatedly said under his presidency he would order "American steel" to be used to reinforce bridges and build "skyscrapers soaring, soaring into the sky." At one point during the speech he added that aluminum would also be used in addition to steel. The comment -- where he said "And aluminum!" -- was not in the prepared version of his speech that was released before delivery.

While standing in front of an unusual backdrop of what appeared to be stacked bales of crushed aluminum, Trump slammed globalization and said that it made "the financial elite" very wealthy, noting that "I used to be one of them. Hate to say it."

10 People of Color Hillary Clinton Could Pick as Her Vice President

Could we go from the first black president to the first black or brown vice president?



Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton will be announcing her running mate within the next two months. Yes, that person is more than likely to be Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), who is in an important swing state and speaks fluent Spanish, but we can dream, can’t we?

Here are 10 African-American and Latino prospects the former secretary of state could select from for a vice presidential nominee.

1. Tom Perez



Perez, who is currently the secretary of labor in President Barack Obama’s Cabinet, has also been assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice. Right now he’s at the top of everyone’s “Hillary VP List.” Perez will be speaking at Virginia’s Jefferson Jackson Dinner the month before the convention, and it’s likely that Kaine and Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) will be speaking there, too, making this a VP-sweepstakes jamboree event.

2. Julian Castro



Castro was mayor of San Antonio for five years and is currently the secretary of housing and urban development in the Obama administration. As one of Clinton’s youngest vice presidential prospects at age 41, he is an unlikely fit for her, but he has been on the campaign trail with her a lot.

3. Rep. Xavier Becerra



California Rep. Xavier Becerra is a well-liked, veteran House member who is the highest-ranking Latino lawmaker in the Democratic Party. Known as an energetic campaigner with an engaging persona, Becerra could be a sleeper pick for Clinton. Although he is in a state that she is likely to win easily in the general election, Becerra would likely do very well attracting Hispanic voters.

This is an older article but obviously still relevant. I like #4 on the list, Cory Booker. I don't think she'll choose him though.
