Polls: People Don’t Know Trump’s Infrastructure Plan Is a Scam

by Dave Johnson – Polls show that the public likes President Trump’s plan to spend $1 trillion on infrastructure. That’s because they think he actually plans to spend $1 trillion on infrastructure. He doesn’t. Not hardly. Not by a long shot. In fact… Infrastructure Spending Is Popular Polls show the public really likes it when Trump says he plans to spend $1 trillion on infrastructure. Gallup: Trump Family Leave, Infrastructure Proposals Widely Popular, Americans are far more likely to agree than disagree with President Donald Trump’s proposals to require companies to provide family leave for parents of a newborn and to spend $1 trillion on infrastructure.

Trump U. Explicitly Taught Students To Exploit Our Most Vulnerable People In Worst Way Imaginable

by Rika Christensen – How do you make a fortune in real-estate, like Donald Trump? Why, be as cold and heartless as possible. Just when we all thought the brouhaha over Trump University was dying down, along come Patrick Caldwell and Mother Jones to throw a stinging dose of reality onto the whole sordid situation. It seems that one of the major things that Trump U. tried to teach was how to exploit poor, disabled people facing foreclosure. Gary Eldred, a real-estate investment advisor, explained in this particular course that seeking out short sales (situations in which the homeowner can’t pay their mortgage back as it stands, and so a buyer convinces both them and their bank to settle for a lower price) that will be profitable requires looking for people who are “certified destitute.” That means people who are out of work and not likely to be working again...

God Teams Mike Huckabee Up With The Duggars For One Of Those Not-So-Free ‘Free DVD’ Scams

by CHARLES TOPHER – Mike Huckabee took quite a bit of flack for defending his “good friends,” the Duggars, after it came out that Jim Bob and Michelle handled their son’s molestation of their daughters like a puppy who couldn’t stay out of the pantry — by locking the door. Huckabee tried to keep things between the zealots — famous for nothing, but a healthy ovum and a lack of self-discipline — as distanced as possible for as long as possible, but when you’re spun on the same wheel of crazy, you’re bound to find each other in the end. That seems to be exactly what happened, as Mike Huckabee has once again teamed up with the Duggars, this time in a little entrepreneurial venture. The Huckster is peddling his own personal version of American History to the idiots who also thought him backing Kim Davis was a good idea. It’s...

Ashley Madison: The $19 a Month Scam that Hammered 25,000,000 Horny Marks

by Hudsagger – Seen the news? Avid Life Media, Inc. — a.k.a./dba “Ashley Madison.com” — is presented on corporate media news programs as a Free Speech company beset by hacker moralists. Believe the corporatist hype and ALM/AM is the victim here. The Impact Team hackers are anti-sex extremists. Or not. More accurately, when investigators got in to the database, followed the money and tracked accounts ALM/AM turns out to have been a large scale scam with billions of dollars a year in corrupt revenues. “Life is short. Have an affair.” That’s the pitch. But overwhelmingly what they’re selling is access to not much. Faked IDs. Faked pics. Faked story lines. Crunch the numbers and this turns out to be yet another inventive corporate excursion into organized crime. Use Dark Web or Bit Torrent software to access the files. Originally the files were left wide open. Pass1234 from the internet to VPN...
