    So, how long is it going to take for the media to locate organized crime with Trumps businesses? I searched on a variety of subject headings, such as, "Donald Trump and Mafia", "Donald Trump and Russian Mafia", "Donald Trump and Organized Crime", and simply "Donald Trump bio". I was surprised by the variety of media links and especially from other countries that have and continue to investigate Trump for his illegal business deals. These must be Trumps, "The Art of the Deal" book, which I haven't read and most likely will never read. However, Trump has a long history of squirting the law and has settled many lawsuits. WIKIPEDIA reports in his BIO where a large number of lawsuits have followed Trump. So, when will the questions come from the media on all this questionable of character, especially a person of integrity, ethical and moral value to be a candidate for President in our United States. If the media hounds can attack all the other candidates, Hillary included, than why does Trump get a get out of jail card for free?

    I don't think the media is ready for the Trump exposure, just yet. I'm thinking that media controllers are waiting precisely the moment to push the questions on Trump's past organized crime dealings for the best public exposure. I'm looking forward to maybe Spring time where Trump is in a good mood of enjoying his lead. Apparently reading all the variety of links on those searches there are some highly profiled mafia characters from Philadelphia and New York. I do remember Trump reporting to the media that he was good friends with Putin, as to convince the public he will be a good President dealing with Russia. I believe Trump on this because he has man dealings with the Russian mafia in his Casinos and hotels.

    If anybody is thinking of voting for Trump, be careful that our America doesn't sell our country into organized crime, as if it already going that way. I questioned Trump on his business when I saw the report from the citizens of Palm Coast that like to tar and feather Donald for his bad transactions. So, to my surprise, Trump can add organized crime to his list of problems following him. Ask the BBC, who have already captured Donald during his public events and ask these questions on organized crime. I believe you can imagine Trump running away from the reporters on this line of questioning.

    I think a good question for the Republican Debate could be ask of all the candidates on, "Any dealings or business with Organized Crime? All cameras focused on Donald Trump. Usually, when asking a question of that nature, you need the factual background, just in case, the candidate lies.

    The media likes Trump because he is good for ratings. That applies to Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, CBS, NBC and ABC plus many newspapers. He is the gift that keeps on delivering, and they will not do anything to harm the image of that persona. Maybe eventually they'll tire of him, but right now he is generating revenue for them...entertaining...again and again.

    The media only looks at how they can profit from their coverage. They do not exist to present a fair and balanced approach.

    The question on organized crime will not come up in the next debate.

    Interesting because it calls to mind how the media gushes over certain characters keeping inline with celebrity status. Then when factual evidence of arise they begin to gain objectivity . The only real newsworthy person is Bernie Sanders. He has the potential to make positive changes but is relegated to a knowingly dissmissive treatment. I can almost detect a wink and nod when Sanders is mentioned and then immediately dropped from the conversation. Trump on the other hand has absolutely nothing positive to add yet continues to gain attention because of his immunity to negative reactions. He has already told labor they have nothing to look forward to and maybe worse because he wants wages to be instrumental in bringing back jobs. He appears to be oblivious to poverty being connected to money being removed world wide from jobs producing ventures.

    As Trump didn't disappoint me, in attempting to deride the casino questions to Bush, Trump shows his corrupt character. Does America want a country with more corruption? Does America desire more corruption in business dealings, such as "The Art of the Deal"? Trump is all about deception and lies. Trump will only inform people on what he wants you to know, as if ensnaring you in a trap, just like a spider. I have no doubt that Trump is corrupt and I have genuine problems with anybody dismissing Trumps past history in negotiating with criminal elements in this country and the world. You bet he knows Putin, as well as the Italian and Russian mafias, because he allows them into his business dealings.

    Electing Trump will inevitably have future Judicial investigations as his abuse of power in the Presidential Office. One thing for sure, Trump, if elected, will be the first President to be actually impeached. Past Presidents have come close to impeachment, but opted out or was found not guilty before impeachment proceeded.

    I question Carly Fiona, and others in the candidate list, however, I find Rubio and Carson as the kids on the block. Last nights debate did show many false answers by these candidates by the fact-checkers. Being caught in a lie is indicative of showing bad character and the public seeing how stupid you look in a debate. The public will think to themselves, "Is this what we want from our future President?". There were so many convoluted answers to questions as they displayed how ill-informed they are on the truths, that one has to believe, "Do they really think that viewers are that stupid?". Maybe the poll statistics show we are that stupid.

    AMC, congratulations, I finally agree with you for a change; yes you are right. The only thing I hate to mention is that all these candidates are evangelical, which makes things even worse. they will even go so far as shutting down the Government over the Planned Parenthood issue. Just ask the question : What would you do if your 12 year old daughter got raped? But knowing your religious tenure, I assume that you are in bed with those nutheads as long as they claim to be religious.
