Donald Trump: We now have TWO opponents…

We’re not just fighting against Hillary Clinton…

We are running against the very dishonest and totally biased media!

It’s time to hold the media accountable for trying to rig this election against us.

All too often I’m asked about a “poll” put out by a liberal organization that says the American people disagree with our common-sense reforms to fix our country.

Since Day ONE, the media has written off this campaign. They said we were doomed.

But together, you and I proved the pundits wrong and ended up getting more votes than ANY Republican candidate in the history of our Party.

And you know what?

Every time I see one more biased report from the dishonest media, I’m reminded that we’re on the RIGHT side of this fight.

Hillary Clinton STILL can’t admit that she lied about sending classified top-secret emails and that she deleted 3O,OOO to cover her tracks.

Can you imagine if I set up a secret server, stored top secret information on it, jeopardized our national security, deleted 3O,OOO records, LIED about it, and then used the defense that my brain “short-circuited”?

The media would single-handedly destroy our campaign!

I’ve always known that the media was out to get Republicans.

But this campaign has opened my eyes to how truly biased and dishonest they are.

We cannot let the media get away with it. We MUST fight back.

Parents of Two Benghazi Victims Sue Hillary Clinton

Parents of two of the four Americans who were killed in the Benghazi attack in 2012 filed have a lawsuit Monday against Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, alleging recklessly handling of classified information contributed to their deaths.

The case has been filed in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia by Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch USA on behalf of Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, and Charles Woods, the father of Tyrone Woods, for allegedly wrongfully causing the death of their sons as well as for defamation and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

The lawsuit suggests that Clinton’s use of a private email server contributed to the deaths of Smith and Woods, adding that terrorists were able to “obtain the whereabouts of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and thus the U.S. State Department and covert and other government operations in Benghazi, Libya and subsequently orchestrate, plan, and execute the now infamous September 11, 2012 attack.”

“Having used a secret private email server that we now know was used to communicate with Ambassador Christopher Stevens with confidential and classified government information, and which we also now know was likely hacked by hostile adversaries such as Iran, Russia, China and North Korea aligning with terrorist groups, it is clear that Hillary Clinton allegedly negligently and recklessly gave up the classified location of the plaintiffs’ sons, resulting in a deadly terrorist attack that took their lives,” Klayman said in a statement announcing the suit.

In addition to the wrongful death and negligence charges named in the suit, the parents also claim that Clinton defamed them in statements to the media, according to court documents.

“During her campaign for President, Defendant Clinton has negligently, recklessly, and/or maliciously defamed Plaintiffs by either directly calling them liars, or by strongly implying that they are liars, in order to protect and enhance her public image and intimidate and emotionally harm and silence them to not speak up about the Benghazi attack on at least four separate occasions,” Klayman wrote in his complaint.

$400 Million Airlifted by US to Iran as Detained Americans Released

The U.S. government airlifted the equivalent of $400 million to Iran this past January, which occurred as four detained Americans were released by Tehran.

The cash flown to Iran consisted of euros, Swiss francs, and other currencies because U.S. law forbids transacting American dollars with Iran.

The cash transfer was supposed to be the first installment paid in a $1.7 billion settlement the Obama administration reached with Iran to resolve a failed 1979 arms deal dating from just before the Iranian Revolution.

State Department spokesman John Kirby denied the cash transfer was done to secure the release of the four Americans, Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian, Amir Hekmati, a former U.S. Marine; Christian pastor Saeed Abedini and Nosratollah Khosravi-Roodsari, whose case had not been publicized before the release.

“The negotiations over the arms deal settlement and were completely separate from the discussions about returning our American citizens home,” Kirby said in a statement. “Not only were the two negotiations separate, they were conducted by different teams on each side.”

“The funds that were transferred to Iran were related solely to the settlement of a long-standing claim at the U.S.-Iran Claims Tribunal at The Hague,” Kirby’s statement concluded.

Since the cash was airlifted, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard has arrested two more Iranian-Americans. Tehran has also detained dual-nationals from France, Canada and the U.K. in recent months.

“Paying ransom to kidnappers puts Americans even more at risk,” Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., said in a statement. “While Americans were relieved by Iran’s overdue release of illegally imprisoned American hostages, the White House’s policy of appeasement has led Iran to illegally seize more American hostages.”

Obama True Colors Shining Through, Like ACORN Colors Have Shined

Van, Texas – Being an illegal born or otherwise illegally residing in the U.S. is wrong and is illegal. Can’t get by the illegal part. From top to bottom, illegal immigrants are also a cancer to the entire United States system. Can’t get by that either.

If your like the guy who is writing this article that may have a certain qualm with illegal immigrants. It would be pretty hard to write the above title. I will try and explain.. In the late 1980’s, ironically when the United States was inflicted on the very same issue of immigration, my Father worked as a Greens Keeper for Van Zandt County Country Club in Canton, Texas. My Father had the job for a good while and seemed to be working his way up the ladder. He came home one day, said he was getting a pay raise. Then two weeks later he was laid off and when we drove up to get his last check, there was an illegal alien doing my dad’s job. This very same thing happened to him while he worked for the Martins Mill School, in Martins Mill, Texas.

None of this made any sense to me then but after recalling the conversations that took place around me, I figured it all out. I was one of the kid’s that the parent’s lost their job to an Illegal Immigrant. Those times were hard on my Dad, and my Mom for that matter. She worked everywhere trying to take care of us kid’s.

Then, I personally experienced what happened with my Dad. I watched a young non-english speaking Latino throw my freshly printed out application in the trash can.

Yes, I am un-happy with what’s gone on. I hate that it all happened like it did and it hurts me to try and fathom how my Dad must have felt when he was degraded to where he couldn’t take care of my two sisters and I.

All that is fact and understandably non-debatable that illegal immigration is wrong and it should be stopped from happening, I don’t care what kind of heart you have.

HOWEVER, you may debate what happens in the future if the youth of illegal immigrants and their off-spring do not get educations. Just a little of the top, you would have a higher rate of crime if they do not get educated. If you have a million illegal immigrants multiply for one generation, you might get 2 million un-educated illegal immigrants. In order to curtail a large infestation of crime, we have to educate these PEOPLE and they will have to pay the money back. This also places them on our social system so that we know where our moneys is going and when it came back, or our government follows them and hounds them like they do everyone else until they pay it back.

Why can’t we just leave them un-educated?

Ideas Matter By Steve Forbes For Rick PerryWell, if you need to know (You Do)… For the past (estimated) 200 years or so, the United States along with individual state governments and law enforcement have been dealing with corruption from Mexico and further south. That corruption was brought on by uneducated populations for generation after generation. In the last decade, Mexico has been enlightened on how corrupt their system is and has been through out Mexican history.

An uneducated population of illegal immigrants is not for the future for the United States of America. It is in the interest of the United States of America and it’s citizens to have an educated population.

The U.S. can not afford not to allow Illegal immigrant off-spring an education. Illegal immigrants will remain underground and remain un-educated and therefore not smart enough to pull themselves out of the whole their parents put them in, Also, would be a greater crime risk and/or a further cancer to the U.S. system or risk of that.

Rick Perry landed coveted endorsement of and from Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona who is known to be tough on immigration and was sought by many top politicians that are in the race for 2012 Presidency of the United States of America. This is a really good thing for Rick Perry’s campaign camp. A in his polls was received which was needed after he had been politically horn-swaggled in past debates and miss-taken statements.

With states like the The Great Texas with it’s Texas Dream Act, and Governor Rick Perry who signed it in leading our country. He actually helped people further their education. Leadership like this could promote less corruption in the U.S. and in Mexico. This why Rick Perry is smart on illegal immigration and strong on the future of America.

Rick Perry has also beefed up the South Texas border security and increased drug enforcement sence the subsequent violence in Mexico as Texas Governor. Therefore the latest rage of the seeming other jealous candidates start flapping their jaws talking about how Rick Perry is a softy, he is not. Those guys would like you to believe that.

Russia, China, Cuba and Ecuador Violating Human Rights With Veto Powers?

Russia, China, Cuba and Ecuador have vetoed past and are against future sanctions, resolutions or actions to stop Syria from killing innocent people. Men, women and children have been subjected to sexual violence, medical malfeasance, gross and systematic violations of human rights by Syrian government forces but nothing has been done to stop it because of those countries. Russia and China have used their veto power at the UN Security Council to block a U.S. and western backed resolution condemning the Syrian regime’s violent crackdown on protests where Cuba and Ecuador do not.

“This has been going on long enough!” says a passer-by when told how long this has been going on. They actually didn’t even know about what had been going on in Syria. When explained to them about the protests, how and why people were being killed by the government, and about this vote, they were shocked. They were even more shocked to know that this had been going on for so long than anything.

Should the free world listen to those whom have no real experience in freedom?
No. That would be like the blind leading the one who has vision. In reviewing history, Russia, China, Cuba or Ecuador have no real experience in freedom and/or human rights.

Russia says they are a democracy, but the specter of every day life is more or less still being controlled like a communist state. You can’t speak out against any regime in power or Putin suffer somehow for it. The only reason we even heard about the “BOOing of Putin” after that boxing match was because someone uploaded it to the Internet, after that the Russian media relaxed any restrictions and went with it. Every time we turn around, the Russian government takes control of another industry.

Cuba is still buddy-buddy with Russia just like they were during the well known Cuban nuclear missile crisis. Cuba still has a communist government no matter what brother is at the helm. They can relax restrictions on sale of cars and property but that a real long way from being experienced in freedom.

China, a well known communist state that is a cancer to their citizens and international society, markets, and moral values such as willful blindness. Can’t speak out on that government or suffer false tax bills and jail time and then extraordinary fines.

Ecuador is on dope, they listen to the man. It seems Ecuador’s hands are tied at the moment. With their economy in shambles and an illegal drugs trade problem they can’t fight, they are more than likely following the lead of the other three. Ecuador is seething with who ever wants to come into their country. They virtually have no border restrictions, and anyone with a printer can get into the country.

China, Cuba, Ecuador or Russia do not have the well being of citizens, values or human rights of those citizens of the United States, Western countries and/or Syria in mind with their vetoes.

A Really Great Recent Example of just how it is a crime to allow abuse:
Recently, a well known college football coach was sacked because it had been suspected that he knew and turned a blind eye while another assistant coach sexually abused individuals and he could possibly have criminal charges brought against him for neglecting the fact that he knew about what was going on. It is illegal to let someone or some organization abuse individuals. So when the coach or who ever did turn a blind eye to what was happening, they broke the law.

So when individuals or an organization such as but not limited a governments turn a blind eyes to crimes such as sexual abuse or the infractions currently taking place in Syria, that in it’s self is a crime and therefore should be leveled against those nations that they are doing so.

More than 4,000 Syrians have been killed by Syrian military forces. Why are we even asking China, Cuba, Ecuador or Russia? What would they do to stop any actions against Syria? Nothing, because they would look just plain wrong. Like Hillary Clinton just recently said about Burma, “We aren’t married to them, this is like a first date.” If history makes any difference, Russia, China, Cuba and or Ecuador has never been on any marriage certificate either. No marriage certificate has been filed for any other country with veto power in the U.N.

What is with these governments? From recent and less recent experiences with all four of these countries with in the specter of the United Nations, on every turn they have let things go on such as this crisis with Syria and with the Iranian nuclear crisis. Every time we want to stop some dictator from killing innocent people, we always have to wait until something really bad happens and it’s not right. So why don’t we all just elect to to hold Russia, China, Cuba and Ecuador responsible for the countless current and past deaths from past wars.

If the syrian Government did have a real problem with insurgents like Iraq was seething with and who caused so much destruction, they would indeed let reporters and human rights organizations into the nation to see what is going on for the whole world to see. However, Syria has not let such personnel inside their borders therefore, we have nothing but to believe that Syrian officials are infringing on human rights.

If you live in China, Cuba, Ecuador or Russia, you should find a way to leave those countries as what is going on in Syria, can and may happen to you at any time. Not very tempting. Image walking around your village in Syria, next thing you know your being tackled, beat down, raped and jailed for no reason if not shot just because the guy down the street is protesting something. An even better example is that if they let Syria get away with this much; How much will them their selves do to their citizens.

Are your human rights violated when one government vetoes an action that would save lives by stopping another government from killing innocent people? Aren’t Russia, China, Cuba and Ecuador infringing on the human rights of the innocent Syrian people?

Seriously, this in-action is deadly and innocent people are dying all of the time. If you are un-happy about this like 99% of the world is, call or fax your local government officials and let them know. Let them know that they shouldn’t be letting Russia, China, Cuba and Ecuador get away with their violation of human right by their vetoes in the U.N. and Human Rights bodies.

How many people have to die because of 4 virtually non-free countries? That’s right. Bet’s could be placed that if you lived in Russia, China, Cuba and Ecuador and you and your buddies went to protesting every day, you’d start dropping like flies and treated just like the Syrian government treats it’s citizens. Be Warned and Beware Russia, China, Cuba and Ecuador Citizens. This could be you.

R.I.P. to the folks who only wanted freedom and have died for that cause. Curse those who let people die for whatever political reason.

Russia, China, Cuba and Ecuador Violating Human Rights With Veto Power?

Calls To Reform/Strengthen/Enforce Digital Internet Services Laws

Chargebacks are a great tool for banks to use in order to protect consumers from illegitimate companies whom offer tangible products and do not send them or send a different product instead. Who would want to ever pay for something they didn’t receive or didn’t select to buy. That’s easy to see, no one would.

In most circumstances a chargeback is a result by an action created by the consumer where they were to acknowledge that they were only authorized to take a chargeback action only in a last result situation; in other words, the consumer has to try to work it out with the merchant before submitting a dispute and is supposed to be coupled with the documentation of the attempt being made. Then and only then is the consumer have the legal ability to submit a dispute.

After filing a dispute with an authorized bank represent, the dispute has to be filed and then reviewed. In review, these banks are supposed to go to the contact the merchant for their businesses agreement information and then review it. The bank is legally bound to the guidelines as a third party in those agreements. They can not rule in the customers favor because the consumer is their customer. If the guideline of a business agreement is broken and the bank allows it, it is call willing blindness and there are laws for that too.

Victimizing Small Business

Ever pay close to $1000.00 in losses for trying to sell a $25.00 product/service because of a chargeback? It happens. That’s what some companies/merchants end up having to pay and the merchants hands are tied because the banks have the authority for some reason and there not following law correctly if their allowing it to happen.

Banks do it every day. Many business have suffered and have failed due to the willing blindness of banks. Every time a bank allows a self deluded customer walk in and file a complaint on assumption and then follow through with it has been in breach of laws. It is fraud to dispute for items you received in the mail unless it was not as described. It is fraud to dispute end business policy driven non-refundable charges. If a companies policy is no refunds, and the bank files a chargeback anyway, they’ve broken the law by allowing it.

It’s time to get our banks lined out, they are screwing up this world every second that goes by. When they allow this kind of stuff, they further our disaster and it is a disaster. The banks should be forced to follow law and not over rule policies agreed to by their customers. You can just bet many other laws need to be en-forced but you can’t cut any slack with these “COMPANIES”. These are companies just like regular mom and pop shop owners and they shouldn’t have the power and authority they do have. What’s funny, the banks bully governments. Want to know why? Banks can think up more ways to generate money and faster than the government can and are able to regulate it. It’s kind of like the banks and financial organizations have a courthouse full of lawyers figuring things out and are playing loophole games. Oh yeah, they have that too.

Once all this stops happening as much as it does, small business will began to make headway due to less loss.

What is loss? The question should be what is a gross loss?

Ruling in the merchants favor:
For a $25.00 non refundable service chargeback even in the favor of the merchant; the merchant makes $5.00 on the $25.00 after being favored against the consumer. So the merchant only gets five dollars less in some cases, and in some cases, the merchant owes in addition to the $25.00. Then the merchant has to pay the labor and all ending costs that occurred during the whole process. Even though they won the chargeback, they lost out anyway because the bank they and the consumer used charged.

Ruling for the consumer:
Consumer get’s money back, keeps product or declines payment for services, and it’s all virtually free to them where the company suffered maximum fees, cost for their product or service, pays higher service fees, has to pay the labor and all that. So what makes it worth it to be in business or a small business?

Either way you look a it, or who ever the bank favors, the merchant pays.

It is worth it to be in business, if you have a good product or service and where success is measured in the good a business does and not the amount of money you make. But when you get someone new or a small business just starting out, they don’t need this type of shenanigan, One chargeback for $25.00 could cost a thousand bucks folks and that’s not right and we have to stop this, otherwise small business will not grow and the banks will get even stronger.

While all this is going on, there are certain individuals targeting certain companies over the with these types of actions and if you are a merchant you should watch your back because they will do it to you, because they can virtually get away with it, they think.

Protect Small Business

As consumer require protection from illegitimate business, we need protection from illegitimate consumers who use such procedures to steal products and services. Small businesses are being abused like this every day. These banks or who ever makes a bobbled ruling and allow fraudulent disputes to be processed are breaking the law and should be stopped.

Internet Crime And Fraud On The Rise

For the last two decades, Internet crime has been one of the hardest crimes to fight. Crime, fraud prevention, politicians and but not limited law enforcement work toward goals to make the internet safer to use but there is always someone out there that has found ways either to scam consumers out of their money or information and on the other end there are consumers committing fraudulent offences against service and product providers to gain access to and render services or receive products with-out paying for them. After the annual E.J.O.A.T Network picnic qusetions were asked and answers were given on many aspects of many different types of fraud and crime over the Internet.

The increase in fraudulent usage and crime on the Internet can and may be attributed to websites like IRS.gov, Facebook.com, Myspace.com, Paypal.com, Yahoo.com, Twitter.com, Register.com and Godaddy.com just to name a few of the most well known. IRS.gov, Facebook.com, Myspace.com, Paypal.com and Twitter.com all have ongoing spoof issues and they seemingly have no idea on how to stop it. Register.com and Godaddy.com have miscellaneous payment and privacy issues along with products and services for sale that allow a person to hide their identity with out support from law enforcement agencies. With the time that it takes to get support from law enforcement and if the proper data does not get saved, most Internet crimes will and have gone un-solved.

Yohoo accounts get stolen by spammers, then when you notify Yahoo even with the death certficate of the owner of the account and that the account is compromized, you get a your account security response. Both Twitter and Yahoo seem to think you have an account and have to go read their websites to find out your doing the right thing but their system has problems. Then Yahoo also wants you to have your spam notification set just right in some format that is pretty much un-heard-of, therefore, nothing get’s done because no one is going over to a Yahoo website to learn how they accept spam notifications, atleast on the fly.

Twitter has a real bad problem with spoof. Twitter spoof is emails that say they are from twitter and information that can be read says it’s al Twitter, but the links inside take you to another website that asks you for personal and/or account details. Allot of people fall in to this trap. When server administrators send spoof notifications, they get failure notifications from their spoof notifications therefore the spoof notification never reaches it’s destination. And after sending e-mails to the Twitter spoof department for support on the issue of the failure, a auto response is received saying thanks for your report that you never sent and the e-mails NEVER get answered. It will be hard to defeat that fraud, that spoof, or this internet crime for Twitter’s inability to receive spoof reports. Not trying to hammer down on Twitter as there are plenty of other websites and businesses on the Internet that have the same problem.

“You’d think a multi million dollar company could do something about scammers spoofing their name.” a local business owner says.

IRS.gov, Godaddy.com and Paypal.com have the same problem with spoof as Twitter but not quite as bad and they seem do something about the spoof and actively fight fraud on their sites.

“How can you do business on the Internet with so many fraudsters.” another local business owner says on this subject.

Many consumers have a tendency to be a little to froogle and find ways to cheat service providers and get free products by scamming companies. This is a crime and costs businesses millions of dollars across the online business spectrum. Business owners work diligently to protect themselves but as it has gone, they get overwhelmed by fraudulent users.

There are even organized groups on Facebook that teach their members how to misuse websites to facilitate the theft of products and services and the business owners that are victimized by this all normally have no idea this is happening to them until it is way to late.

Until law enforcement and other organizations and agencies can all get together to stop crime and fraud on the Internet, we will all have to watch email links we click and who we are selling to. Do you know of any other websites that have bad fraud or spoof problems? Are you a business owner that has fraud problems? Leave us some comments….
