    CDC: People With Dirt On Clintons Have 843% Greater Risk Of Suicide
    ATLANTA, GA – According to a report from the Centers for Disease Control released on Thursday, people with inside, compromising knowledge of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s financial and political dealings are 843% more likely to commit suicide.

    “We’ve never seen a single risk factor cause a spike of this magnitude,” a CDC spokesperson told reporters. “Interestingly, in spite of their increased suicide risk, people with dirt on the Clintons rarely show any warning signs of suicide, and they never leave a suicide note.”

    Remarking about how abnormal it is, the spokesman again stressed the significance of the data.

    “Therefore, we advise any American with detrimental information about Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, or the Clinton Foundation to forget about it as quickly as possible to avoid a greatly increased probability of taking your own life,” he cautioned.

    “And—I swear—that’s all we know.”

    Died of SUICIDE on 24/7 SUICIDE WATCH ? Yeah right! How does that happen #JefferyEpstein had information on Bill Clinton & now he’s dead I see #TrumpBodyCount trending but we know who did this! RT if you’re not Surprised #EpsteinSuicide #ClintonBodyCount #ClintonCrimeFamily

    The video included in this tweet is just risible. However, what makes it notable is that Trump re-tweeted it, apparently endorsing a tweet alleging that the past President of the USA (or perhaps his wife) had someone murdered in federal prison. As David Frum said, ha Nixon said this of LBJ the world would have exploded, but now the world treats this behaviour by Trump with a giant shrug of the shoulders. Why? Because it is accepted..."within his administration, within Congress, within the United States, and around the world—that the 45th president is a reckless buffoon; a conspiratorial, racist *****, whose weird comments should be disregarded by sensible people."

    (edit: the censored word begins with m, ends with n, and has the Spanish for gold in between).

    David Frum is a neocon warmonger who was Bush's head cheerleader for the Iraq War. He's the American version of another liar for hire, Alastair Campbell (spit). And like AC, instead spending the rest of his miserable life covered in silent remorse and shame, he somehow still oozes into the public square.
    His weird comments should be disregarded by sensible people.

    And btw, it's cute how people who spent the last two and a half years with their arms wrapped around the Russia collusion hoax are tut-tutting other people about 'conspiracy theories'.

    Nevertheless - the POTUS should not be re-tweeting half ***** conspiracy theories.

    Anyone would think he was a vindictive loon for doing things like that.

    Hope there are no more mass killings this week because he is playing golf at one of his properties (so no conflict of interest there then).

    Wonder how much these trips cost the US taxpayer ?.

    MAGAorMIGA Star commenter

    "his weird comments" are obviously spot-on. In what universe can the President of the USA accuse, without any evidence, a predecessor of murder? Is the USA now a banana republic?

    If that is what Trump has done, can he not be sued for libel, at the very least, by Clinton?

    Maybe not.The laws of libel, particulary of public figures, are very different from the UK.

    artboyusa Star commenter

    In what universe can a grifter like David Frum, who helped get over 4000 Americans and who knows how many Iraqis killed in a useless war, be considered to be some kind of moral authority?
    I guess if you hate Trump enough you can be forgiven for anything by some people.

    I wish! I'd love to what Trump's legal team would find during the discovery process.

    Interesting that the twitter trend of #clintonbodycount went universal across all states. But the response #trumpbodycount was confined to twitter's home state of California. Of course twitter had to take down the Clinton hashtag and force through it's own.

    Then you've got that the prison Epstein was in had an exemplary record on prison suicides... nair a hair harmed on any wannabe self-murderer in the joint... and then Epstein manages to top himself.

    Did Trump fly in Epstein's jet? Yeah, once, Epstein insisting to him and Trump needing a ride back to New York... not Lolita Island... to New York... so the court stated:

    2002 to 2005

    And when did Trump fly?


    Come on people! At least try with the lies... make more of an effort... really... Do I trust Trump? Ha no, wouldn't trust him near me, near anyone I love... but at least try and get it right!

    Clinton flew 27 times... a fair few times deliberately dismissing his secret service detail... but yeah it's just a 'conspiracy theory' [this from the same folks who prattled on 'ma Russia collusion' for three years]


    Meanwhile this is a good breakdown of what we know about the life of Epstein.

    Yes, the channel is Carl Benjamin... but he does a fair and balanced job.

    Really? Trump still has lawyers willing to work for him? I thought they all quit after he refused to pay them and/or he couldn't be trusted to be interviewed by investigators without implicating himself multiple times.

    So they watched him commit suicide. They ticked all the boxes. How are you going to convice a Yankee judge that they didn't do what their employer asked?

    From GolfNewsNet:
    President Donald Trump, through his Trump Organization, owns or operates 17 different golf courses or properties around the world, including 12 in the United States, two in Dubai (one open, another opening in 2018), one in Ireland and two in Scotland, as well planned courses in Indonesia.

    Two of those U.S. golf courses is close to his Mar-a-Lago private club in West Palm Beach, Fla., and that's where Trump plays the bulk of his golf as President in the winter. He spends plenty of time at his golf club in Sterling, Va., about 20 miles from the White House. He also loves to stay at his Summer White House at Trump National Golf ow many times has Trump played golf as President of the United States? Since taking office on Jan. 20, 2017, Mr. Trump has reportedly been on the grounds of his golf courses or played golf elsewhere 218 times since becoming President, and that's as of Aug. 10, 2019.

    The cost of Trump's golf rounds to the American taxpayer varies by round and course, but it has totaled so far in the tens of millions of dollars.

    He previously was on pace to visit his golf clubs more than 650 times in an eight-year presidency. However, his pace as of Aug. 6, 2018 now indicates Trump would spend as much as 745 days of his presidency at a golf course if he wins a second term and serves both terms to completion.

    Tump ended 2017 with 91 golf course visits and was just shy of 100 visits in Year 1 as President. In his second year as President, Trump played golf 76 times.

    Trump has spent nearly 22 percent of his days in office at one of his golf properties for some portion of the day. There have been days where Trump has visited one of his golf clubs and not played golf. He made a 40-minute visit to his Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Va., and he has made a three-day visit to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., to watch the 2017 US Women's Open, unfolding at that club. Trump spent a 17-day "working vacation" at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., in August, which meant all of those days count as days on his golf courses, even though he didn't necessarily play golf on all of those days.

    Trump has played golf with friends, famous people (including golfers Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson, Daniel Berger, Hideki Matsuyama, Justin Thomas, Bryson DeChambeau and Ernie Els) and for political and diplomatic purposes. He played with Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who has been an opponent of Trump's health-care reform plans, and South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who has become an ally on taxes. He played with Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe in February and November in 2017, as well in April 2018. He's played with legendary quarterback Peyton Manning and Tennessee senator Bob Corker. He does seem to struggle with basic etiquette at times, as Donald Trump has driven a golf cart on a green.

    We don't know if Trump has played golf every time he shows up to one of his clubs. That's because the Trump Administration has gone out of its way to bar the White House press pool from shadowing President Trump when he goes to his golf clubs. That means Trump could be playing golf, or he could be hitting golf balls on the range, or he could be twiddling his thumbs. We don't know, and the Trump Administration won't say.

    A prime example came when Trump played golf with Rory McIlroy ahead of his comeback to the PGA Tour. Trump officials asked McIlroy if he would play at the last minute on Saturday night for a Sunday tee time. McIlroy chose to take up the President on the offer, but the White House not only did not disclose Trump was playing golf with McIlroy, they didn't acknowledge that Trump played more than a previously stated intention of a few holes. The group played a full 18. It wasn't until McIlroy spoke about the round to No Laying Up that the Trump Administration had to correct the record.

    The frequency with which Trump plays golf isn't really an issue -- just as it wasn't for former President Barack Obama. The presidency is an overwhelmingly difficult job, and the office-holder is certainly entitled to a handful of hours every week to take a load off. However, Trump was particularly critical of how many rounds President Barack Obama played in office, and so now he looks somewhat hypocritical in retrospect.

    From Forbes:

    GAO report on four visits to Mar-a-Lago by President Trump

    The GAO report estimated that just four of Trump’s trips to Mar-a-Lago cost:
    • $13.6 million
    • Do not “capture all of the total expenditures by the government”
    • Do not “include certain classified cost information”
    • $60,000 in expenses paid to Mar-a-Lago (there have been 24 so far)
    • Were not able to identify meals and incidental expenses, if any, that may have been incurred at the Mar-a-Lago club.
    Forbes estimates $105m so far.
