Donald Trump: We’re going directly to the voters

You’ve seen it – the liberal media can’t stop telling outrageous lies about me.

They are really a disgrace to journalism, and they’re so desperate to mislead the American people about our campaign!

Yet at every stage we continue to prove them wrong, including:

— Smashing the Republican primary vote record by 1.4 MILLION votes;

— Pulling off an incredible Republican National Convention, with much higher viewership than the Democrats’ disastrous convention;

— Packing stadiums everywhere we go;

— Raising $82 million in July alone from hundreds of thousands of grassroots supporters.

Now we must continue to build on our great momentum all across the country.

We know the Clinton campaign will cheat to win – just like they did in the race for the Democrat nomination.

And we know the liberal media will continue to say and do ANYTHING to put Crooked Hillary Clinton in the White House!

I know you’ve been following this race closely. I’m sure you’re as sick and tired of their desperate lies as I am.

Day in and day out they attack me, our campaign, our Republican friends down the ticket and supporters like you all across the country…

…while giving Crooked Hillary a free pass on her terrible policies and long record of failure and cronyism!

Don’t let them get away with it – help me prove our opponents and the liberal media wrong about the Trump movement, by growing our team and WINNING on Election Day!

We’re going to reach the American people directly with our message about making better deals for our country, bringing back our jobs, and achieving a brighter future for every American.

NFL says no to the Dallas Cowboy decals for fallen police officers in Dallas Texas

The NFL denied the Dallas Cowboys request to wear a decal on their helmets that would have paid tribute to the five police officers killed last month in a downtown Dallas ambush.

The team had been wearing a decal with the words “Arm in Arm” since the first day of training camp this summer where Dallas police Chief David Brown and Mayor Mike Rawlings paid the team a visit on that day.

The NFL has strict rules on uniforms forcing the league to deny the Cowboys request to wear the decal for the upcoming pro football season. In the past, there have been several other tribute decals allowed to be worn on helmets and other parts of the uniform.

Dallas police said it appreciated the support that the Cowboys are attempting to show.

“Their concern for the families of our fallen officers, the Dallas Police Department, and the City of Dallas is what matters most, and we know that support will continue for the immediate and long term future,” the department said in a statement.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and tight end Jason Witten, who created the decal, said they were disappointed with the leagues decision but said they believed the stickers already served its purpose.

NFL says no to the Dallas Cowboy decals for fallen police officers in Dallas Texas

The Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation told the media they were extremely upset over the NFL’s decision not to allow the Cowboys to wear the decal.

“The NFL had an opportunity to be leaders and advocates for change in law enforcement,” Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, president of the foundation, told the website. “These are our friends and our loved ones … it hurts to not have the NFL fully support us.”

San Francisco High-rise Sinking and Tilting

A high-rise residential tower built recently in San Francisco that is home to famed San Francisco 49ers quarterback Joe Montana and San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence is slowly sinking and shifting, and may ignite a court battle between residents and the city.

P.J. Johnston, spokesman for Millennium Partners, which built the tower, told the media in a written statement that the transit center has been a negative impact on the luxury high-rise.

“All buildings settle over time,” the statement said. “However, 301 Mission exists in a location where major underground construction work was subsequently performed by others, who were obligated to monitor and protect existing structures, and to mitigate any impacts of their work. 301 Mission has settled more than originally anticipated because it was affected by such subsequent construction by others.”

The Millennium Tower Association, the building’s home owners association, told the media it has hired its own group of consultants to try and figure out what’s going on.

“The Association has retained a number of engineering consultants to investigate the causes and long-term impact of these settlement conditions,” the group said in a written statement. “Importantly, the Association has been assured that there are currently no short or long-term concerns with regard to building integrity or safety.”

Sean P Diddy Combs Arrested Again, This Time For Violence

Los Angeles, California – Hip-hop music mogul Diddy (Sean Diddy Combs, P Diddy) was released from jail after an alleged assault where he attacked the coach with a weight-room kettlebell at the athletic facilities of University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) campus, where his son is on the football team, police said.

Taylor Swift: Pay Me For My Music, Apple

Recently, Taylor Swift spoke out about Spotify economics. Now, she has slammed Apple over its decision not to pay musicians during a trial period for its new music service.

The music powerhouse has announced that she won’t allow her latest album, “1989,” to be included in Apple Inc.’s new music-streaming service, in a protest over royalties. Swift says Apple is acting greedy despite being one of the richest companies ever, and Taylor Swift is angry. When the Apple Music streaming service launches June 30th, users will get a three-month free trial.

Taylor Swift gets support from music superstars after writing open letter to Apple where she sad it was “shocking” that her music was to be given away for free as she pulls album from new music service.

The Apple tech giant is about to launch a new music subscription service, Apple Music on June 30, and to get folks to try it out, Apple will offer free three-month trial subscriptions.

This is usually what happens with large companies, they start attempting to railroad everyone just so they are able to do what they want, which is probably to sell more electronics rather than to help who they are using such as Taylor Swift and other great artists.
