    Donald Trump catapulted himself into the spotlight with his gilded real estate ventures and vibrant personality. The latter is what has made his show "The Apprentice" such a huge success. And over the years, he's had an opinion or two about the business world. "In the end, you're measured not by how much you undertake but by what you finally accomplish," Trump once said. But like any successful business person, Trump has had his share of setbacks. Here, we present to you 12 Trump businesses that went belly up or no longer exist.

    Baltimore city state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby’s motion for a gag order in the Freddie Gray case was denied Monday because the prosecutor filed paperwork in the wrong court.Mosby’s May 14 motion, filed in Baltimore’s circuit court, was intended to block witnesses, attorneys and police from speaking publicly about the Gray case. Six officers have been indicted on a total of 28 felony charges related to Gray’s April 12 arrest. The 25-year-old Gray died April 19. His death was ruled a homicide.Judge Charles Peters slapped down Mosby’s motion, citing jurisdictional issues, The Baltimore Sun reported. The cases for the six...

    The Obama administration is scrambling to assess the impact of an unprecedented data breach involving the agency that handles security clearances and employee records. According to the Washington Post, Chinese hackers breached the Office of Personnel Management in December and gained access to personal information of up to 4 million current and former employees. A congressional aide familiar with the situation, who declined to be named because he was not authorized to discuss it, says the OPM and the Interior Department were hacked. A second U.S. official who also declined to be identified said the data breach could potentially affect...

    Undercover agents were able to sneak fake explosives and banned weapons through Transportation Security Administration checkpoints, in an investigation that revealed a massive, system-wide security failure at America's airports. The findings were part of a DHS inspector general probe. The report is still classified, but Fox News has confirmed the investigation found security failures at dozens of airports. Homeland Security officials confirmed to Fox News that TSA screeners failed 67 out of 70 tests -- or 96 percent -- carried out by special investigators known as "red teams." In one case, an undercover agent with a fake bomb strapped to...

    Back in 2009, when Congress was debating the Affordable Care Act, many liberal Democrats felt it did not go far enough that it should be even more sweeping, even more expansive, even more costly. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, one of the Senate's most liberal Democrats and a veteran of many legislative battles, urged his colleagues on the Left to go ahead and pass the bill. "The key to this is that this modest home, we can put additions onto it in the future," Harkin told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow in December 2009. "But if we don't have the starter home, we're...

    Many people who may vote in the democratic primary election, if there is one and the general election in 2016 have no real knowledge of Mrs. Clinton or her accomplishments.

Even after threats and intimidation, she couldnt even get a vote in a democratic controlled congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million in cost for studies, promotion, and other efforts. Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over...

    Republicans on the Senate Finance Committee say they have found at least $5.7 billion in wasted ObamaCare spending from the last five years. Panel Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said his staff have tallied the costs of five programs that have failed or "added no value," from the dysfunctional HealthCare.gov website to the national sign-up navigator program. "That is $5.7 billion down the drain," Hatch said during a hearing Thursday to mark the fifth anniversary of ObamaCare's passage. The federal government's HealthCare.gov, which broke down in the fall of 2013, has been one of the most criticized components of ObamaCare's rollout....

Among some of the likely motivations he listed were deprivation, a desire to avenge the death of a loved one, a response to acts of discrimination or repression, the desire to belong to a group, and rebellion against anonymity.

    Julia La Roche October 13, 2014 We asked billionaire energy tycoon T. Boone Pickens on Friday what worries him the most about America. "Lack of leadership," he said. "We have the worst president we ever had," Pickens said. "I mean, he's going to be determined the worst before he ever gets out of office. He accomplished a lot less in eight years. Nobody else has ever done that. You know, Jimmy Carter loves him because he was the worst until he showed up, Obama (snip)

    Obamas left never accepts responsibility for anything. Weaned on the sour milk of thuggish, tenured academicians and marinated in the surreal stew of lawyer-land, the odd creatures that infest our White House have no notion of work or honor or duty. This manifests itself in different ways. Mendacity has been elevated almost to a secular religion. Obama, his officials, his armies of minor minions prevaricate with such aplomb that one wonders if they truly know when they are lying or telling the truth. The disgraceful trail of obfuscations, dissimulations, and quarter-truths are invariably defended by the administrations flacks with the...

    From the last Morning Jolt of the week: What Is With Our President? Contemplating President Obamas confident and erroneous assurance that Ebola was unlikely to reach America, and that if it did, Americas hospitals and doctors were prepared to diagnose and respond immediately a veteran speechwriter for cabinet officials wrote in: In the times that I was involved in speeches for various folks in the previous administration they and those around him were highly attuned to hyperbole and statements such the one Obama made about Ebola. Now people can crack wise about Iraqi intelligence and the like,...

    Okay...I have been reading many of the Ebola-related threads. This crap scares me, as I'm sure it scares many of you. I have seen posts that say this is going to spread due to the administration's incompetence. I have also seen posts that say it will spread due to the desire for the country's destruction by the same administration. This thread is to find out what you think the outcome is going to be. Martial law? Death on a massive scale? Suspension of elections and/or the Constitution? Will there be a public backlash? Or do you think it's going to...

    The Dallas Hospital that sent Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan home said a software flaw, and not human error, caused doctors to miss the diagnosis, NBC News is reporting. The electronic health records (EHR) system that the hospital uses has a separate workflow for physicians and nurses. The travel history of the patient was located in the nursing portion of the workflow within the EHR, but not in the physician's workflow.

    DALLAS, Texas (CNN) The Dallas County Health and Human Services director said Friday that the Ebola situation there is under control. It is contained, Zachary Thompson told CNNs New Day on Friday. The Ebola patients family is being monitored. There is no outbreak. And so therefore everyone should ease their fears and allow public health officials to respond to this issue. Four days after a Liberian man was diagnosed with Ebola in the Texas city, the apartment where he stayed has not been sanitized, a cleaning crew contracted to do the job said. Four other people are still...

    As the Republic slowly twists in the wind of the worst American Administration since George III, it is possible that even Team Obama's key kabuki players recognize that their front man, Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., (or II) has been in failure mode since the heady days of Admin I. But, what to do with an Admin II fool who now dangerously believes in the omnipotent legend created for him and thus believes himself free to act on his own, and perhaps even more dangerously, to ignore the basic responsibilities of the post, namely to show up? I am hoping that...
