source: KTVK channel 5, Phoenix, AZ

Trump tweets he'll deliver immigration speech in Arizona

" So maybe Donald Trump is coming to the Valley on Wednesday after all.

The Republican presidential nominee tweeted out on Sunday that he is going to make a "major" speech on illegal immigration on Wednesday, Aug. 31 in Arizona. He said he was looking for a larger venue.

The tweet comes after Trump's appearance had been scheduled for Wednesday at the Hyatt in downtown Phoenix.

However, Trump's campaign staff said on Friday that the event had been postponed.

Here is one of the reasons Hillary called Byrd one of her mentors...

" *Joined the KKK at age 24 -- liked that it was anti-Communist. It's a membership for which Byrd has repeatedly apologized. "

Others can be found at the same FOX remembrance of Byrd:

A Look Back at Covering Sen. Robert Byrd: Facts and Remembrances

" Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-WV died early Monday morning after a legendary career in Washington, here are some facts and remembrances from covering the 92-year old senator for years on Capitol Hill.


*Nov. 8, 2009 -- Byrd became the longest serving member in Congress in history.

*June 12, 2006 -- Byrd became the longest serving senator in history.

*Nov. 2006 -- Byrd was elected to his 9TH FULL TERM. (So - Byrd was closing in on his 58th year in the Congress).



I bring this up because Don the Con is now using what Hillary said about Byrd as evidence of her being a "bigot." He could not be any less honest if he was a con man real estate developer.... Oh wait...

Here is why Don the Con recently said he had some "regrets"...

Donald Trump Appears to Take Sheldon Adelson’s Advice on Humility

" Donald J. Trump met privately last week with Sheldon G. Adelson, the billionaire casino magnate, who this spring pledged to contribute as much as $100 million to support Mr. Trump’s campaign but has not yet followed through on that commitment.

Meeting in his suite in New York’s St. Regis hotel, Mr. Adelson, the chief executive of Las Vegas Sands and one of the Republican Party’s largest donors, told Mr. Trump that he was committed to his campaign, but urged the brash candidate to demonstrate a measure of humility, according to five Republicans briefed on the conversation who were not authorized to discuss it publicly.

The conversation took place last Wednesday, the day before Mr. Trump used a rally in Charlotte, N.C., to say, without offering any specific examples, that he had regrets over “saying the wrong thing.”

Justice Department will probe Sheriff Joe Arpaio

source: AZCentral

" The investigation and possible prosecution of metropolitan Phoenix Sheriff Joe Arpaio will be handled by the U.S. Justice Department after federal prosecutors in Arizona asked to be removed because of unspecified conflicts of interest, according to a court filing made public Friday.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for Arizona said in its brief filing in U.S. District Court in Phoenix that the case has been assigned to the Justice Department's criminal division, public integrity section.

The filing cited "existing conflicts of interest or the appearance of conflicts of interest pertaining to the matter" for Arizona's federal prosecutors, but it did not provide details.

Don the Con cancels Phoenix event next week

edit- UPDATE
Donald Trump says he's coming to Arizona; state director says he's not
Brian Seitchik, Trump’s Arizona state director, who had confirmed cancellation of the event Friday afternoon, could not be reached for comment following Trump's tweet. Trump's national spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, did not respond to the newspaper's request for clarification of the status of the event.

The latest confusion from the campaign reflects mixed messages surrounding the event and others the campaign has canceled in recent days.

source: AZCentral

" Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has canceled his visit to Phoenix next week, his campaign said Friday.

Trump was scheduled to deliver a speech at a downtown Phoenix hotel on Wednesday. But Brian Seitchik, Trump’s Arizona state director said, “We have postponed next Wednesday’s visit, but we look forward to having another Arizona event scheduled soon."

The campaign provided no explanation for the cancellation. Trump also canceled a Las Vegas rally scheduled for Friday, although the candidate did travel there en route to a fundraiser in northern Nevada. And earlier this week, Trump called off other scheduled events, including in Colorado.

Montini: Arpaio turns criminal contempt referral into ... a fundraising opportunity?

source: AZCentral

" You've got to give him points for originality.

Or for gall.

Or for delusion.

Take your pick. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has decided that Judge Murray Snow's decision to refer Arpaio's civil contempt offenses to the U.S. Attorney's office to consider filing a criminal complaint against him has become a fundraising tool for Arpaio's campaign.

He blames his troubles -- brought on by his own racial profiling policies -- on the ACLU, the justice department and, of course, Obama.

New Don the Con campaign hat...

Posted by 63splitwindow | Thu Aug 25, 2016, 06:49 PM (2 replies)

In constitutional legal terms, what does this even mean? Not to mention, the "bad dudes" are...

currently being deported after appropriate proceedings.


Trump said that on his first day in office, he would authorize law enforcement to actively deport "bad dudes," such as those who have committed crimes. But he declined to flatly say whether he would round up other undocumented immigrants, stressing that once the initial deportations occur, "then we can talk."

Great lessons from history that Don the Con never learned. I will start the list...

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

Top GOP Congressman Tells Trump To Release His Taxes

source: Huffington Post

"Donald Trumpshould release his tax returns and full medical records, Republican Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Jason Chaffetz (Utah) said Wednesday.

“You’re just going to have to do that, it’s too important,” Chaffetz said on CNN. “If you’re going to run and try to become the president of the United States, you’re going to have to open up your kimono and show everything, your tax returns, your medical records.”

Chaffetz said that the standard applies to both candidates. Clinton has released her 2015 tax return and medical history. Trump has only released a cursory, bombastic letter from his doctor.

So much of the the other crap spewed by Don the Con is meant to distract from his refusal to release even just a couple of critical pages from his tax return. It must be INCREDIBLY DAMNING!!!
