Thumbs down Donald 'Scrooge' McDrumpf BOMBSHELL: Shafted 9/11 Charities

All this as Senator Clinton was instrumental in getting my city $21 billion to fund the recovery and helped to get first responders the Health services they so desperately needed. SMH.
NYC Audit Finds No Donald Trump Donations for 9/11 in Months After Attacks

The New York City Comptroller’s Office has found no evidence that Donald Trump donated to 9/11 charities in the months after the attacks, the agency said.

Trump had promised weeks after the 2001 attack to donate $10,000 to the Twin Towers Fund as part of a charity effort by “The Howard Stern Show.”

“My office has reviewed the donations made in the nearly 12 months following the attacks – and we didn’t find evidence that he contributed a single cent to the victims, our first responders, and to our city through the Twin Towers Fund,” Stringer, a Democrat, said in a statement to ABC News today.

“In the wake of 9/11, New Yorkers came together, healed, and rebuilt. If Donald Trump claimed to donate and didn’t, if he claimed to support New Yorkers in a time of crisis and refused, then that would be just plain wrong.”

It’s possible that the Republican presidential nominee donated after the two audit periods reviewed by Stringer’s office. The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.

At the request of multiple news organizations, including the New York Daily News, which first reported the story, the office of City Comptroller Scott Stringer conducted a review of previously sealed records of the Twin Towers Fund and the New York City Public/Private Initiatives Inc., doing business as the Twin Towers Fund, which were set up in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks to raise money to support victims’ families, first responders and first responders’ families.

Stringer’s office confirmed to ABC News that it had manually reviewed about 1,500 pages of donor records, containing the names of more than 110,000 individuals and entities that were collected as part of the audits. The audit of the Twin Towers Fund covered the period from Sept. 12, 2001 to Aug. 31, 2002, while the audit of the New York City Public/Private Initiatives Inc., doing business as the Twin Towers Fund, covered the period Sept. 12, 2001 to June 30, 2002.

Stringer’s office found no record of a donation made by Trump or a Trump entity in the year after the tragedy, contrary to the real estate developer’s claims.
Disgusting.

It gets worse...
Only parenthetically in the middle of the 10-minute conversation did Trump turn to a favorite topic—size. “40 Wall Street,” he said, referring to his 71-story building blocks away from the now-collapsed twin towers, “actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and it was actually, before the World Trade Center, was the tallest—and then, when they built the World Trade Center, it became known as the second-tallest. And now it’s the tallest.

Marcus chalked up the remark to “Donald being Donald. … He is the brand manager of Trump, and he is going to tout that brand, and he does it reflexively,” he said. “Even on that day.”

Unbelievable.

And while the Donald was having a d*ck measuring contest with the fallen towers...
Hillary Rodham Clinton

Then New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton was instrumental in obtaining $21 billion for New York City in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, working alongside New York’s Senior Senator Charles Schumer. Clinton also took a leading role in investigating the health issues faced by 9/11 first responders, ultimately winning the first federal appropriations for medical monitoring of 9/11 Responders. This funding laid the groundwork for future appropriations and the expanded Medical Monitoring and Treatment Program to come. Without Clinton’s early efforts on behalf of 9/11 Responders, the 9/11 Health and Compensation Act as we know it may not have been possible.

That's not a bombshell. Every story is not a bombshell.

You want a bombshell? Here's a bombshell.



Looking at those figures it's quite clear that The Rapture has begun and it's starting in North Carolina first.

^Not a bombshell. Anyone who has been following my posts knows I've been reporting on the situation in North Carolina since early voting began weeks ago. The Donald was finished there before the race even began. Same with Virginia, which he has fled from.

I love how Hillary always talks about all the great things she did in the aftermath of 9/11. What I want to know is - at what point did Hillary learn that the Saudis were deeply involved with orchestrating 9/11? The 9/11 commission report was officially published in 2004, and as a US senator she would have had access to the 28 classified pages that lay out the Saudi connections. Considering she was a senator from NY at the time, she probably had some access to the report or information inside of it before the official publishing date.

Its interesting that 7 years after the attack when she became secretary of state, she had no problem with selling massive amounts of arms to those same Saudis that she knew had helped to orchestrate 9/11. Its also interesting that she had no problem accepting massive donations from those same Saudis at her foundation.

How many of these stories are we meant to believe?


So trump is now a paedophile, a rapist, a fraud, a thief, a Islamophobe, Xenophobe and whatever else?


Why are we only seeing these stories conveniently right before an election and not earlier?

Coincidence

But he'll happily spend $10,000 of other people's money on a portrait of himself, and then claim that he donated that money to charity

https://img.washingtonpost.com/wp-ap...1474316891.jpg

Quote:
It was a four-foot-tall portrait of Trump himself, painted by Miami Beach-based artist Havi Schanz. In 2014, the painting had been auctioned off during a charity gala at Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla. Trump himself was the winning bidder, buying the painting for $10,000. Then, later, Trump actually paid for the painting with a check from his charity, the Donald J. Trump Foundation.

Tax law experts had said that this could violate a law against "self-dealing," which prohibits nonprofit leaders from spending charity money to buy things for themselves. Those experts had said that, if the Trump Foundation paid for the painting, then the painting had to be put to charitable use.

This is the guy some people here want as President

It's called doing your homework on your opponent. Digging up whatever dirt you can find, both political parties do it...welcome to American Politics 101.

The Republicans themselves didn't properly vet Donald. They can only blame themselves for this shits how. Put anyone else up there against Clinton and the polls would be reversed.

Quote:
Multiple Republican campaign sources and operatives have confided that none of the remaining candidates for president have completed a major anti-Trump opposition research effort. There are several such efforts being run by outside conservative organizations. But those efforts are still gathering intel on the businessman after having started late in the primary season, these sources told The Huffington Post. And they worry that it may come too late.

“It is one of the many ways we underestimated him, I suppose,” conceded one top Republican campaign official whose candidate has since exited the race.

Quote:
“Not taking Trump seriously as a candidate a year ago was a mistake we all made, so I don’t blame his Republican opponents for that. But the lack of evidence that they have been doing thorough research on Trump more recently is malpractice,” said Daly. “[i]f a Republican had committed six recent college grads to power through a Nexis dump in November and December, by January they’d have been able to compile a powerful narrative amplified by names and quotes that they could have put in ads by now.”

According to what the mainstream media would have you believe about Donald Trump, he:


-Is a warmonger who wants to start nuclear war with everyone

-Is literally worse than Hitler

-Is a mass rapist

-Is a child pedo

-Is somehow to blame for the death of Captain Humayun Khan (RIP). Khan died in a war that Hillary publicly supported and voted for as a senator, but Donald Trump is the one to blame.


-Hates Muslims

-Hates gays

-Hates women

-Hates black people

-Hates Latinos

-Is connected to the KKK

-Keeps a copy of Mein Kamf next to his bedstand and read excerpts to his children for bedtime stories when they were growing up

-Despite the fact that he is apparently a Nazi who worships famous Communist-hater Hitler, he actually is a commie plant, secretly collaborating with Vladimir Putin



Did I miss anything?

The voting is not the bombshell. That voting is evidence that people have started ascending bodily into Heaven is the bombshell.

THE RAPTURE IS UPON US.
