Anybody making a conspiracy theory their main political platform like Trump is, especially one as racist and silly as the birther issue, is simply a clown looking for attention and money.

I believe you are right about that. Trump is fabulously wealthy but, it's not 'old money'. He says that he will announce in june whether or not to run, so if he does run it means that they couldn't control him. That's my hope, that he runs as a renegade, against the washington bureauocracy, against the Rothschilds.
New York, Oct 3 (ANI): Donald Trump's business partner Tevfik Arif has been charged for his role in pimping out Eastern European models for decadent sex parties aboard a Turkish yacht.
Turkish prosecutors have reportedly hit Arif and five others with charges related to organizing a criminal gang, prostitution and human trafficking, reports the New York Daily News.
Details of the charges were not revealed because prosecutors had not drawn up an indictment.
The six suspects remained in custody pending a trial, according to the reports.
The arrests came after police raided the Savarona, a 450-foot luxury yacht moored off the coast of the city Antalya.
It followed a seven-month probe into the alleged international prostitution ring.
During the raid, police rounded up nine Russian and Ukranian models - two of whom were minors - and the wealthy businessmen who allegedly shelled out 3,000-dollar to 10,000-dollar for the trysts.
Aug 4, 2010 Donald Trump is one of the defendants named in the complaint [Getty Images]. People behind the Trump SoHo Hotel Condominium New York are being sued by buyers who claim they lied about sales figures for the project.
According to the complaint, representatives of Trump SoHo said the project was “30, 40, 50, 60 percent or more sold” , but when the offering plan began, buyers learned that just over 15% of the building, 62 of the 391 units, had been sold.
Representatives of the complainants said they would never have signed contracts if they knew so little of the project had been sold.
These buyers, who have bought six units at Trump SoHo, are suing to have their contracts rescinded and their deposits returned, as well as for unspecified damages and fees.
Among the defendants named in the complaint are the Bayrock/Sapir Organization LLC; Donald J. Trump; Alex Sapir; and Tevfik Arif; and sales and marketing bodies, including Trump’s children, Donald, Ivanka and Eric.

Yes, I think I can sway you. Since a massive ego would be one requirement, we're good there.
I am with you there. I agree it is both necessary for the job and Trump has it in spades.
As far as business expertise, Trump has lost it all at least once in the past. He owes nothing that I'm aware of.
How did he get back from losing it all? Do you know how many times he has failed and been bailed out? Is he self made or was he handed a lot to lose to begin with? I understand he is rich now but so is Paris Hiltion, you know?
The guy in charge right now has never had to make a payroll, or ever really had a job outside of the public sector. He's cluless when it comes to understanding what the small business man contends with in this country. All Obama is, is a community organizer. All he knows is what he's learned in school, and that's why he's not qualified for the job.
I believe I am all clear that you do not like Obama. I hardly feel it is a productive course for any country to simply look to someone else because they are not that guy. If I ask what would make Trump a great president, telling me Obama is a community organizer does not make that argument any more than saying the guy down the block collects strange dolls. Neither one of them are Trump and thus do not exactly explain why I should be for Trump.
I am sick of people telling me to go one way or another just because it is AGAINST someone else. There are other people that are also not Obama. They might be better than Trump. Why Trump?

A chump, no but he is acting like a blithering idiot, with all this birther crap. He has some ideas I actually like, like if we save some ones ass, they should pay for our men and women to be shot at and hit. That seems only fair. After all it always did and always will come down to money.
