In the months prior to Trumps election, I remember a writer on here saying the Trump campaign signs in New York were everywhere and out numbered those of Clinton. I argued Trumps popularity in NY and he did lose that state, people dont like him there. However, I did ask around to people I know, especially in places like PA, OH, WI, VA, SC, NC,WV, TX, WA, CA where I know people. In any event, there was a movement for Trump. But I was still shocked on November 9 at whatever time Clinton called Trump to congratulate him.
In the weeks and months that followed, I personally saw in protests and eventually town halls some very upset people. Some of the "liberals" were upset about Clinton and more so when actual totals came in. What I did find though were really "poor losers" and even more "horrible winners". So I wanted to find out why and that was not as simple as winners and losers. There has been a tension for a long time, in the last 45 years or so, in the ugly side of America. The Obama administration however made that ugly side rear its head and Trump who was part of that, rode in on its fury. I dont want to write an entire article on this so Im just leading into the research with my history on this. I spent months and will likely spend much more time compiling my own data on the stories I have been told, what I have seen and researched, and my opinions of the situation as a whole. I made sure that I got more data from the Trump side than any liberal source. But I have many liberal sources.
At the end of the day, it is irrelevant HOW Trump got elected, he got elected. So like probably thousands of others, I began some research on him, details on his background (historical stuff), politics and Trump supporters. For the PEOPLE not of US descent, we actually do need your opinions and feedback. It is relevant to us the United States much more than most of the citizens themselves realize, so hang in there.
Oh and I wanted to mention..we now have spudnick radio fm in the US..fyi, sorry I found that funny, oh and they have a liberal hour 5 days a week.
This is a tiny fraction of the links (more current) about Trump and surrounding stories. Its all really interesting.
Here is some data for research and objective discussion. I have some story lines that alone could be entire articles and in fact, many more I have spent a long time researching. But I am going to give you some data and if you want to discuss the information fine. I will be willing to do that, but unless you can refute this information with much more reliable information,(and I will check) please lets just have some civil discussions over the information I am providing you.
The timeline below was done by Bill Moyers staff , posted on his site but research and over time
added to by Steven Harper. This is the most detailed timeline in the verifiable known Trump/ Russia incidents that have occurred in a very short time.
Bill Moyers for the record, served in both the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. He is also a journalist and has worked for many major news outlets, written books and hosted documentaries on the history of American Government.
Now Steven Harper is an attorney who battled legally with Jimmy Hoffa and because he has the research skills along with the Moyers staff can verify sources. He stands by this data as accurate and nothing on the timeline is apparently in accurate in source. Hes not a journalist, but is held to a standard of accuracy in ethics.
Here is the link for his timeline, now we found out or heard these things at different times than on the timeline. But they are put into the time they occurred...not when we discovered or heard the stories.
You will find some interesting (maybe) coincidences.
Go down past the couple paragraphs and look at the timeline. There to date are 425 occurrences of data about Russia. Much you have probably never heard about. I only have 123 on my list of stories so this is very thorough.
Here are some things along the way, mostly newer stuff that I found interesting...
Dont cheat..they are easy
Local news is by far the best source...
turned out so far to have some truth to it.
The one above might be a big one...both in negotiations and in the scandal.
Just a few tidbits...you may or may not have some details on. Some things didn't get as much airtime as others...
THIS MIGHT BE MY FAVORITE STORY OF THEM ALL..Trump tried to rip off South Carolina for the cleanup of a business he bought from his son to bail him out by lying about the purchase. I have seen the documents with the questionnaire and his signature. Cost to SC state taxpayers - millions. Come on they are a red state. Now I spoke with both Lindsay Grahams and Tim Scott's office about this situation. The first was aware and working on it and the second said they had no knowledge of the situation. The state did not approve Trumps proposal for the state to pay for his sons mess.
See story below;
Here is another personal favorite, in the last week since Charlottesville, Trump has said that taking down the Confederacy statues was removing history. Right? Well...maybe he has not always felt that way about HISTORY. In fact, he has not and is blowing blue smoke up your asses. In 1980 when building Trump Tower there were two magnificent rare deco pieces in the building that the Metropolitan Museum of Art wanted A LOT for their historical significance to NYC. Now Trump had received 56 million in tax abatement's..this would have been nothing for him to help the Met. The museum wanted them donated and would have contributed to the removal of the rare friezes, but Trump thought the delay was too long and even after he agreed, had his men jack hammer the pieces in half and the people from the Met watched as they fell to the ground in pieces. He also lost a Bronze piece in the rubble. At the time he caught a lot of shit for this, but told the press they weren't of any artistic merit. In truth, the friezes were in 1980 worth a great deal and had a good deal of significance from the cities 1929 history. Now this is a homegrown NYC boy...who destroyed his own culture. But truth be told..he really has no culture (that part is my opinion-the rest is not). https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/03/18/donald-trumps-first-media-controversy-is-a-really-great-story-just-a-really-fabulous-story/

Another thing about the Confederacy..on the historical significance of those "artifacts" to Trump, on the campaign trail he was asked about the Confederate Flag and if it should be taken down and put into a museum for historical significance. His answer..Yes, I believe it should.
"Two days after Donald Trump announced his presidential candidacy, Dylann Roof shot and killed nine African American worshipers at the historically black Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston, S.C. Pictures of Roof holding Confederate flags soon surfaced — and so, too, did calls from Democratic and Republican politicians to remove the flag and other Confederate symbols from government property.
Trump was one of those politicians. Within a week of the shooting, Trump came out in favor of taking the Confederate flag down from South Carolina’s adding, “I think they should put it in the museum and let it go."
I cant find the video I saw but here is link for the story..https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/monkey-cage/wp/2017/08/18/in-2015-donald-trump-said-the-confederate-flag-should-go-in-a-museum-heres-what-changed/
