No, Donald Trump has not given his campaign $100 million, and other answers to your money questions

“I will have in my race more than $100 million put in of my money, meaning I’m not taking all of this big money from all of these different corporations like she’s doing,” Trump said at the debate. “What I ask is this. I’m putting in more, by the time it’s finished, I’ll have more than $100 million invested. Pretty much self-funding.” -Donald Trump

One of the great appeals for many with Trump was his assertion that he was “self funding”

Forget Fidel Castro’s policies. What matters is that he was a dictator (The Alt-Left needs to get real)

Actually I’d say we need to remember his policies too, which were horrific. But point taken.

(From The Guardian)

Castro was an authoritarian. As JFK said of the revolutionaries: “They promised individual liberty and free elections. They promised an end to harsh police-state tactics.

Going forward the Trump needs to be held accountable. With properties and projects around the world there are and will be many opportunities for crony capitalism to sprout within the new administration. It is incumbent upon those of us who believe in free markets and a non-crony economic system to hold the new administration’s feet to the fire. Cutting the federal workforce is excellent. Handing out subsidies to favored businesses would be very very bad.

Trump has an historic opportunity to rise above the crony temptations which are now laid out before him.

King of Fake News: The U.S. Federal Government

(From The Tenth Amendment Center)

Anyone with an ounce of sense and access to the Internet should be able to ferret out the truth and lies in these stories with some basic research. That these stories flourish is largely owing to the general gullibility, laziness and media illiteracy of the general public, which through its learned compliance rarely questions, challenges or confronts.

Then there’s the more devious kind of news stories circulated by one of the biggest propagators of fake news: the U.S.
