How many people have been harmed financially by Trump U?

    Austinstarposted 6 months ago

    To the best of my knowledge, no one has died or been financially ruined because of Hillary's emails, yet people are coming forward to testify how Trump U defrauded them out of their savings and credit card loans. So why are people still harping about those darn emails?

      According to Reports, Thousands of AMERICANs, including OUR Precious Senior Citizens, have been Financially DAMAGED to the Unfortunate TUNE of 40 MILLION Dollars by a FAKE "Unlicensed" School called "Trump University" ~

      Moreover, According to FILEs, Trump Continued to Operate the SCAM for approximately 5 YEARs Subsequent to a Warning Issued which clearly indicated that he was in VIOLATION of State Law ~

      The Victims Stretch from COAST to COAST ~ Given Trump's Checkered PAST & Willful, Irrational Verbal ATTACKs on the Presiding Federal JUDGE, "Punitive DAMAGES" Charged AGAINST Trump are certainly within the "Realm of Possibilities" ~

      Are you excited that this is the first thing that anyone found that they feel can actually hurt Mr. Trump?  Win or lose, he will simply settle with some cash and move on.  He's pretty smart when it comes to dealing with the legal system, so I bet this case drags on for years...oh wait, it already has.  I understand that many people are using this a political tool and I don't blame them, but in the end, it's purely a civil case and meaningless.  Now Hillary, yes, there are many who speculate her case could go either way and it may well disappear, but they key difference is her case is a criminal case which could send people to jail, just like it did to General Petraus.  Now if she's not guilty, then why did the FBI give Brian Paglinao a deal?  The FBI just doesn't do that for fun.  Why so many high powered lawyers on the case for the Clinton team?  And why after all these months hasn't it just "gone away?" 

      Trump U ends up being a Fraudulent case, he gets fined...
      Hillary found out to violate the US law - prison time

      see the difference?

      Plus, the e-mails are hurting Hillary with Democrats, Trump's supporters could care less about Trump U.

        Has anyone noted that as Pres. Obama and Secy. Clinton got richer and richer, the income inequality in the U. S. got worse and worse?  That is a heritage of the first term as well as the second.  Different Congresses, same results.  Job creation?  Yes, at McDonalds, Wendys, Burger King, etc.  Let's get real about job creaation and revitalizing America.

    The fact is there is nothing at all even remotely available to criticize her about therefore all the venom and bile of right wing tea party "Hatters" has coagulated over this very small issue.

      TRUMP U IS NOTHING COMPARED TO CLINTON’S LAUREATE EDUCATION
      The Clinton scandal at Laureate Education, a for- profit education chain of schools and colleges operating world-wide, including the United States is much worse.

      That New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is pursuing Trump University while ignoring CGI-University, a shady joint venture of Laureate and the Clinton Global Initiative adds insult to injury.
      The Laureate Education went private in August 2007, in a multi billion dollar, risky, hugely leveraged transaction, closed in the last gasp of the bubble.

      The leveraged buyout was completed around August 2007 for approximately $3 billion in debt plus equity.
      The driving force behind the deal is of Friend of Bill (FOB) hedge fund king Steven Cohen, a poster child for bad hedge fund behavior.

      Henry Kravis and his KKR, Goldman Sachs and many others are in.

        Please get your facts straight! Especially when referring to the future president of the USA!

        Hillary Rodham grew up in the Chicago area. She attended Wellesley College, graduating in 1969, and earned a J.D. from Yale Law School in 1973. After serving as a congressional legal counsel, she moved to Arkansas, marrying Bill Clinton in 1975. In 1977, she co-founded Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families. She was appointed the first female chair of the Legal Services Corporation in 1978, and, the following year, became the first woman partner at Rose Law Firm. As First Lady of Arkansas (1979–81, 1983–92), she led a task force whose recommendations helped reform Arkansas' public schools, and served on the boards of corporations including Wal-Mart.

        It is false that Trump didn't pay income taxes.  He filed his 2015 taxes (dated March 30th 2016), and paid income tax. The tax records can be seen on DonaldTrump .com in PDF form.  Its good to get the facts straight before saying something that is incorrect.  I'm sure most people do not want to mislead others, because basically most people are good, I tend to believe that (to a fault at times). 

        Trump was audited by the IRS for his 2015 taxes, as I stated before.

        It was Hillary who said Trump didn't pay any taxes.  She opens her mouth and lies come out. The sad thing is liberal media goes along with her false narratives and good people believe the lies...then say Trump supporters are lying, or that conservative news outlets are bias when they report the truth. 
        See for yourself, there is proof.

        There is a lot to learn from Toltec wisdom, and I have been a student of it for many years.  It has helped me and still does, but it is up to you if you want to use it.   When you make it a strong point to 'take nothing personally' you will be free to trust yourself and to make the best choices. The hurtful or careless actions or words of others won't effect you because that is about them, not you. 

        I strongly recommend The Four Agreements.   I love it, but that is just a starting point if you chose to learn more. Self help is a very good thing!

        It was all a big fat scam - just like the one DT is trying to pull on the Republicans. Well, they deserve it

    I cannot for the life of me figure out how some people think Trump is a qualified human being, much less qualified to be our president.

      NICE Chart Austinstar ~ It CLEARLY illustrates President Obama's Incredible Accomplishments ~

      The Economy, our GLOBAL Standing & National SECURITY have ALWAYs been at its ABSOLUTE Best & STRONGEST with a Democrat in OUR White House, and that's just an UNDESPUTED FACT ~

      There are actually many more POSITIVEs which can be attributed to President Obama and the FOLLOWING are just a few more to add to the LIST ~

      * LOW or ZERO Inflation
      * Real ESTATE Stabilized
      * No MAJOR Terrorist Attacks here in the U.S.
      * Gas Prices Tempered

      etc etc etc ~ smile

      President Obama did nothing LESS than "Miraculous JOB" with the Catastrophe Republican George W Bush left him, that's WHY he will absolutely go down in HISTORY as a TOP 5 Leader of this Nation ~

        Speak to the families of those public servants killed in California and tell them to their faces that "No major terrorist attacks have taken place" recently.  It doesn't have to be 3,000 people to be major to them.

          The California shootings did not result in a major war which got thousands of our soldiers killed over an error in intelligence gathering.
          And don't forget that it was Obama that had Bin Laden captured and killed.

        38,000 more jobs in a month of May in which part of 3,000,000 new graduates for this May and June will be out there looking for jobs to pay off their tuition loans?  That will solve unemployment alright, and many economists say the real rate of unemployed who are looking for jobs and who have given up looking for the fast fleeing quality jobs is more like 20%.

    You guys are joking around aren't you !  So I thought I'd show a few more King Obama accomplishments ,   

    -He has so overpopulated  America's work force with illegal aliens in such incredible numbers  that democrats will never have to  work again , at manual labor at least , now called Manuel Labor, he too will get 15.00 an hour ..

    -These immigration  numbers are needed to replenish the inner cities  with low tech labor because democratic policies have all but economically destroyed the major cities  to the point  that even  democratic populations are leaving them , but hey at least they can drive and get free stuff!

    - He systematically set back our race positive progress 50 years .  with the help of Al Sharpton , Jesse  Jackson  and Oprah , Now that was one hell of an accomplishment , just ask him he'll tell you!

    - He hired the most incredibly  gifted bullshi**er for secretary of state  to ever set foot in all of your socialist  bestie's  countries  China , Iran , Chile , Argentina , Mexico ,and her  great friends  Saudi-Arabia ,  and even Russia .

    - He personally appointed  enough extreme liberal  federal  judges, 150 or so as to alter the course of The constitution  for  the rest of it's short  life . Even to the point where they can now target Trump  and
    no one even cares whether or not witch hunts are legal ,renewed  Salem witch hangings to begin soon !

    - He personally sanctioned a war against cops from thugs all across this land  and simultaneously set back police - public relations for decades , all the way to our nostalgic  1960's !

    - His encouragement of BLM has bread  a wholesome love for all races in America , as long as you are black ,   I think that he forgot to mention that ALM !

    Oh  please let me go on !

        Better get out a REAL history lesson  ,   For a hundred years or more these cities have been Democratically ruled ......They are economically failing , and they are the  most violent ,the  poorest , ....and the funny thing is now ,  people are leaving them ...........I guess you'll need the illegals  to repopulate them  though huh ?

        Let's see , ...... You have driven these cities financially  into the ground  with entitlements , now you'll give entitlements to illegals ,with a drivers license and insurance , while the cities are financially  squashed ,  ........ so .....who wins but the illegals ?

        Trump will change all that !

          Did you even glance at the chart i posted? Time and time again, it has been PROVEN that our economy is better under the Democrats. They tax the rich. The Republicans cut taxes on the rich. Are you just incapable of seeing the writing on the wall?
          I am against immigration too, but if you think Trump can stop it, you are crazy as a loon. No one can stop it. Our borders are too big.
          Be reasonable, if you can, and pay attention to the real world.

            The ONLY problem wall in America is the wall that's between common sense and none ,    The southern border is the only problem border ,  One LAW alone  would be enough to cure our immigration ill's,  if it were a law that company owners who hired illegals went to jail.   Of course Pres. Obama should be impeached for ignoring ALL  American constitutional law ! AND If the GOP  had any balls  he would be . Many liberals in America have naively been drawn to socialism as to make them sponge's for all things P.C . and  so entitling , leading me to believe   the voting age should be raised  to thirty  .   America might as well face it ,  you have become  soft in common sense .in morals and ethics .

            Obama said last night  on comedian ,Jimmy Fallon's show ,............ "This is not a reality show "............he sure as hell  has that down in his" leadership" style  .   And Hillary answered the question yesterday ass to why over 50 % of voters DON'T trust her . 

            So here's your question , What great amount of common sense tells you Trump isn't worthy of office .

              Check your facts about how the 9/11 terrorists entered our country. Hint- It wasn't over the southern border. Neither was it the southern border that the california shooters came across either. Believe it or not, the Mexicans were here in the Americas before white people were. We stole their country!
              Also, DT has immigrants working for him by the hundreds. He should be in jail for doing that by your reasoning. He wears suits made in Mexico, has dealings with China and lies about bringing those jobs home.
              In fact DT lies so much i don't  have a clue as to why anyone believes a thing he says.
              Both DT and you are clueless about the constitution. Neither of you have ever read it or studied it as Obama has. You imagine in your head what you think it says. You interpret what you think it says, not what it actually says.
              DT thinks he understands foreign policy because he attended a beauty peagent in Russia once!
              I could go on for days about how DT is unfit to be president, but you won't listen, so what's the point?

                What's the point?.....My point is that you don't know of what you speak. So, here's a lesson ,  Conservatives are about just that  -conserving , .....Uh conserving what ?....you blankly ask .  How about the bill of rights , the constitution , the sovereignty of individual rights , of the individuality of economic livelihood , of the protectionism of  small and nonintrusive government ,local ,state or federal , About the conservation of liberty and so our country .  I will vote day after day for the protectionism of our country , even though liberals are too naïve to understand or protect that right  .

                Trump , right now , is the only candidate showing me that- THAT  is of the most important issue in this election . While the hypocrisy  of the left can't get it's head out of the utopian cloud formation  of Obama-Mao-ism or the Clinton self- ism or the Sanders  pseudo-socialism .   

                Unfit to  be president - that's an infinitely loaded  statement coming from todays progressivism pundits !

                The fact that Trump has immigrants working for him blows the "racist "card that you and yours profess of him ,right out of the water !

                Let's face it liberals , progressives and whatever you are have actually bit the dust  in 08' when it comes to the protecting the integrity of our nationalism . Hook ,line and sinker , America will pay for that for the next fifty years but go  ahead and pat yourselves  on those  spineless backs.  P.C. wins in the crowd on the left , every time  .

    Because, if as has been reported, "those darn emals" are now rightly known to have contained some with TOP SECRET material, then by definition those documents contained information the public disclosure of which could do serious harm to the entire country, not just a finite number of students hoping to make their mark in real estate.
    If Mrs. Clinton is as good and as serious a leader for the USA as she would have voters believe, she would not have callously put all of us and sensitive sources in harm's way as she and her personal staff (we paid for) were doing with "those darn emails"!

      Austinstarposted 5 months ago in reply to this

      Unfortunately, there isn't a good way to defend the emails except that what she did was NOT illegal at the time, it was known to her tech crew that this was probably a bad idea, but since Condeleeza Rice and Colin Powell were also using private email servers at the time, it did not seem to be an issue, AND all of her 'private' emails HAVE BEEN TURNED OVER TO THE GOVERNMENT now, AND she is now using a "secure" server for emails as she has LEARNED from her mistakes.
      Also, it has been shown that the Republican witch hunters are faking some of those emails to try and make her look bad.
      The FBI has concluded that no harm has been done that would result in criminal charges, and no prosecution is forthcoming. Yet Hillary haters just won't turn lose of this so-called "scandal". They are still like a Pit Bull dog, salivating and slobbering, with a bone that they refuse to let go.
      Hillary is still standing! She has weathered the very worst that her detractors can come up with. She is strong and intelligent. She is willing to work FOR the people of this country, to serve it in spite of haters calling her the worst names imaginable.
      She is by far the most experienced person to fill the job of President that there has ever been. And she has proven that she can keep the U.S.A. on its great course, because we,the people, have never faltered and never will.

          There are 2 active cases pending against DT about Trump U. One is a civil case and the other is a RICO case which would result in jail time for DT.
          The FBI investigation over Hillary's emails has concluded and there are no charges pending. Look it up. The Republicans are still chewing on this dead bone and will continue to do so until it chokes them.

            This is the latest the afternoon of 6/9/2016 I have heard or read on the FBI's investigation of Secretary Clinton's possible misuse of her hackable email server:  A presidential spokesman said "The president was confident that investigators of the case would  be 'guided by the facts and“follow the evidence where it leads, despite his political endorsement" of Mrs. Clinton for the Office of President Of The United States of America.
            Their investigation is ongoing at this point.

    So... Not even his lawyer wants Trump to be president? LOL

    "The attorney leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's defense in a civil fraud suit related to Trump University donated to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign earlier this year.

    According to the Center for Responsive Politcs, Daniel Petrocelli gave $2,700 to the Clinton campaign this past January, two months after he was brought onto the case. Yahoo News, which first reported the donation, also reported that Petrocelli has been a financial backer of Clinton's campaigns dating back to her first run for the Senate in 2000."
