Trumpenomics – A Disaster in the Making

When it comes to trade, and trade deals, Trump’s low-information following is all about en 1their candidate’s plans.

Well…There’s a shock.

As the case over the Texas Voter ID law heads to court next week, it appears that Holder has employed…

THE CATALIST GROUP…to gather information.

CATALIST has quite the client list. Obama’s 2008 election campaign, the Democratic Governors Association, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the American Civil Liberties Union, NARAL – Pro-Choice America Foundation, and the Texas Democratic Trust.

GEE WIZ…WERE ALL THE DOJ’S INVESTIGATORS TOO BUSY DOING AN IN DEPTH INVESTIGATION ON LEAKS COMING FROM THE WHITE HOUSE OR IGNORING THE CONTEMPT CHARGES TO WORK ON KEEPING VOTER FRAUD A SUBSTANTIAL PART OF THE PROCESS IN TEXAS???
