Leid Stories Stories and news that affect us all

July 24, 2017  

The duopoly is big trouble, but to hear them tell it, both the Republican and Democratic parties are merely adjusting themselves to post-election realities. Move along, nothing to see here.

But this being politics, almost nothing should be accepted as the truth.

As Leid Stories noted in earlier commentaries, both parties in fact are imploding, and it is unlikely that even their revved-up “[re-]messaging” campaigns will bring back the faithful any time soon. The kind of damage they’ve done, and continue to do, has hit hard and deep; worse, the leadership won’t claim responsibility for dragging their parties down.

We continue yesterday’s discussion on President Donald Trump’s chaotic administration and disastrous policies. Particularly noteworthy and troubling is Trump’s obsession with utterly destroying or supplanting President Barack Obama’s record and achievements, domestic and foreign, over Obama’s eight-year term.

Then there are other major issues that ensnare him: nepotism; conflicts of interest and secret dealing; open attacks on his own governmental agencies; inability to work with Congress; continuous lying; treating the country and its assets as his own personal possessions. He is the most unpopular of all U.S. presidents rated at the six-month mark.

Trump has quickly worn out his welcome, but it’s hard to tell with his maniacal tweeting about how great he is and how lousy or rotten his “enemies” are. Leid Stories asks: How much longer do we tolerate this misfit president?

On July 17 and 18, Donald Trump raged behind closed doors. The repeal-and-replace victory he was hoping to declare over Obamacare came to naught, after several Republicans backed away from two separate versions of a bill to win their support. They balked a full repeal-and-replace bill, and then turned against a repeal-only bill that was floated as a compromise.

Trump’s political defeat made, and is making, big news. But it’s the personal angle to the story that intrigues Leid Stories. 

July 18, 2017  

Listeners discuss their views of the Trump administration’s first six months, and in what ways it has shaped, and shaping, America’s and their own political attitudes and choices.

It’s been a long time since the business of the people was at the top of the agenda and legislators, working together, wrestled with delivering the best possible results. Instead, we’ve been mired in never-ending rounds of partisan politics that stall, or cancel all together, opportunities for true progress. Case in point: what’s happening now—the rise of the Uniparty, both parties barely distinguishable from the other in their allegiance to big money and its antidemocratic vision for society.

The system is badly in need of an overhaul, says Leid Stories, and since it’s working just fine for the Uniparty, we’ll have to do it. Any ideas on getting that process started?

You asked for it, you got it—an entire hour with Charles Ortel, discussing important things to consider as you prepare for life and survival during and beyond the chaos we’re experiencing now. What changes must we be prepared for? What changes must we be prepared to make? NOW!

Charles Ortel is a former Wall Street investment banker who specialized in corporate mergers and acquisitions. He is credited with strengthening regulations and penalties against companies engaging fraud. After retiring, he has concentrated on fraud within the world of so-called charitable  organizations. The Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation occupying his attention for almost three years.

Charles Ortel is back with us today to report his latest forensic findings on The Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Foundation—which he calls “the largest unprosecuted fraud in U.S. history.”

The former Wall Street banker, who blew the whistle on major U.S. corporations engaging in massive stock fraud during the 2007-2008 crash, has set his sights fully on charity fraud, now that he’s retired.

For more than two years, Ortel has been unearthing startling information and records about the foundation, its operations and its principals’ and officers’ outrageous conduct in flouting charity laws, both in the United States and around the world.

What cards does Hillary Clinton have that would give her reason to feel confident enough about re-entering the political circus at this time? Hmmm?

Charles Ortel provides an update on his research on the Clinton Foundation and related developments.
