But honestly, if I had lived in New York during 9/11! or Boston during the bombing or for many many, lost my house during the 2008 financial collapse, due to clear incompetence and greed; how can you trust these same financiers who lost track of risk, seriously!! Where were the politicians? Who knows what I would do behind the small voting booth? Britain certainly underestimated the little private booth. Trump is right to continue campaigning and Hillary is right to keep going. Should be an interesting Nov. 8th!!

Where were the politicians? In bed with the banks, Rem.

‘He was a total f---ing beast’; Trump allegedly partied with teens at cocaine-fuelled parties in the 90s: Report
Postmedia Network

Donald Trump allegedly hosted wild cocaine-fuelled sex parties with underage girls in the 1990s, according to The Daily Beast .
Long before he was a Republican presidential candidate, Trump used to rent out suites in Manhattan's Plaza Hotel so older rich men could meet - and have sex with - teen models as young as 15, say two sources.
One of the sources, a fashion photographer who requested anonymity, claimed the teens were there to network, but often found themselves in compromising situations.
"There were always dramas because the men threw money and drugs at them to keep them enticed," the source told The Daily Beast. "It’s based on power and dominating girls who can’t push back and can be discarded. There’s always someone to pick them back up. Nobody wants to call home and say ‘Help me.’"
Although Trump reportedly preferred to use the corner suites for parties - because they had the best views of Central Park - it was the combination of sex, drugs and booze that was the main draw for the men.
“I was there to party myself," says the source. "It was guys with younger girls, sex, a lot of sex, a lot of cocaine, top-shelf liquor.”
The photographer recalls Trump going room to room and, even though he never took any drugs, he did allegedly partake in a lot of sex.
"He was getting laid like crazy," the source said. "Trump was at the heart of it. He loved the attention and in private, he was a total f---ing beast.”
Male model Andy Lucchesi, described as one of the men who wrangled young models for the parties, agreed there was a lot of cocaine and many young women around, but downplays The Donald's alleged affairs.
“So, he’s a man with a woman,” he told The Daily Beast. “A lot of girls, 14, look 24. That’s as juicy as I can get. I never asked how old they were; I just partook. I did partake in activities that would be controversial, too.”

Hispanic woman claims co-workers used Trump images to harass

IOWA CITY, Iowa — A Hispanic woman says her white co-workers at an Iowa claims office used images of Donald Trump to racially harass her for months after they learned she was angered by his description of Mexican immigrants as rapists, according to a civil rights lawsuit she filed against her company.
Alexandra Avila’s co-workers at Sedgwick Claims Management Services — where they administered benefits for Walmart employees — began calling her an “illegal immigrant” even though she’s a natural-born U.S. citizen, according to the lawsuit filed Monday in Iowa district court. The suit claims her former co-workers placed a picture of an angry-looking Trump as Avila’s computer’s screensaver, signed her up to volunteer for his campaign and sent her racist memes, including one that read: “How’s Mr. Donald Trump going to deport all these illegals? Juan by Juan.”
The Republican presidential candidate’s promise to build a border wall to keep out Mexican immigrants has for months contributed to racial tensions nationwide. “Build a wall” chants have been used by high school students to taunt Latino opponents at sporting events in multiple states, including Iowa, Wisconsin and Indiana. At Kent State University, Latinos marching in the Homecoming parade this month said they were taunted with the same chant.
Avila, a 32-year-old mother of one who worked at Sedgwick for three years, claims she faced similar heckling at her white-collar workplace in Coralville, Iowa, from the beginning of Trump’s campaign in June 2015 until after she was fired five months later.
“It’s been a weird political season where one candidate is taking public stances on things that, if the same words were said in the workplace, might constitute violations of our civil rights laws,” said Avila’s attorney, Paige Fiedler. “His candidacy has emboldened some people to feel like that doesn’t violate social norms anymore.”
Lesley Gudehus, spokeswoman for Memphis, Tennessee-based Sedgwick, declined comment on the lawsuit.
Avila, born in California to Mexican parents, told colleagues she was upset with Trump’s 2015 campaign launch when he said of Mexican immigrants: “They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”
Soon after, the lawsuit claims, colleagues removed the photo Avila had of her young daughter as her computer screensaver and replaced it with a picture of Trump yelling and pointing his finger. When Avila removed the photo, they kept switching it back to Trump, the suit alleges.
An email arrived from the Trump campaign last fall thanking her for the support and asking how she wanted to help, according to the suit. Avila also claims her colleagues sent offensive memes, including one showing a brown-skinned man that read: “Found Jesus — he stabbed me twice.”
When her department was voting on a potluck menu, one co-worker said Avila was ineligible because she was an “illegal immigrant,” drawing laughter from Avila’s boss, the lawsuit claims. Avila contends that after she complained about the harassment, the company accused her of falsifying timecards by claiming she worked minutes more time than she actually did.
Avila was fired last November and escorted out, with Sedgwick saying it would send her personal property later. When her belongings arrived from FedEx, Avila says they contained a handwritten note that called her “La Trumpa” and added: “Illegal immigrants can’t vote or work. Good luck finding a job.”
“Getting that box in the mail was a horrific experience,” Fiedler says.
After her firing, a co-worker sent her an invitation to a Trump rally on Facebook, the lawsuit claims.
The lawsuit, which names Sedgwick and two supervisors, alleges Avila suffered discrimination based on national origin and that the company failed to pay wages she earned.

Donald Trump’s Hollywood star vandalized
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
First posted: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 02:32 PM EDT | Updated: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 08:09 PM EDT
Los Angeles police are investigating a pre-dawn attack that destroyed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame less than two weeks before the election.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which bestows the stars and maintains the popular tourist attraction, said it would quickly repair Trump’s spot, but it would take several days before it would visible.
Det. Meghan Aguilar said investigators were called to the scene Wednesday following reports that the presidential candidate’s star was struck by blows from a hammer. A sledgehammer, construction hat and vest, and a pick were recovered nearby, Officer Sal Ramirez said.
A man who identified himself as Jamie Otis said he’s responsible for the damage, telling the website Deadline Hollywood that he originally intended to remove Trump’s star. He says he wanted to auction it off to raise funds for the 11 women accusing the presidential candidate of groping them. Trump has denied the groping allegations.
Aguilar said she was aware of the Deadline report but couldn’t comment on whether Otis is a suspect.
Trump’s star was dedicated in 2007 in recognition of his work on NBC’s reality TV show “The Apprentice.” Trump’s star is near the Dolby Theatre, where the Academy Awards are held each year.
To receive a star on the Walk of Fame, a celebrity has to be nominated and a $30,000 fee paid to a charitable trust.
It is at least the second time this year that Trump’s star has been targeted. In July, an artist installed a miniature wall topped with razor wire and “keep out” signs in response to Trump’s vow to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to stem illegal immigration and drug smuggling.
“When people are unhappy with one of our honorees, we would hope that they would project their anger in more positive ways than to vandalize a California State landmark,” Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Leon Gubler wrote in a statement. “Our democracy is based on respect for the law. People can make a difference by voting and not destroying public property.”

MILAN — An Italian land artist has used his tractor to transform a field near the Italian city of Verona into a giant portrait of U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Artist Dario Gambarin created a similar portrait of Democrat Hillary Clinton in September.
Gambarin created the Trump portrait on a 25,000-square-metre field, writing “Ciao,” beneath Trump’s left shoulder, signifying recent polls that show Clinton ahead. Still, Gambarin was quoted by the Verona daily L’Arena as saying “anything can happen. And in case of defeat, the Republican Trump can in any case console himself with my huge portrait.”
Gambarin often chooses topical figures for his tractor art, which he creates freestyle in his cornfield without a pattern. Previous subjects have included Nelson Mandela, Barack Obama and Pope Francis.

Married Donald Trump desperately wanted to have sex with Playboy model during time on 'Apprentice'
Postmedia Network
First posted: Thursday, October 27, 2016 01:50 PM EDT | Updated: Thursday, October 27, 2016 02:27 PM EDT
Donald Trump repeatedly proposed to Playboy model Brande Roderick during her time on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ even though he was already married, according to reports.
Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, didn’t stop there, according to the Daily Beast, quoting unnamed sources. No, Trump told just about anyone who worked on the TV program — the ex-playmate was a contestant on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ in 2009 and 2013 — that he desperately wanted to have sex with Roderick.
“(Trump) kept proposing to her and telling her how beautiful she was,” one anonymous staffer from ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ told the Daily Beast . “I think he was trying to be charming.”
The Donald didn’t stop at harmless flirting, though, even though he was married to Melania at the time. The leering and sexual comments were almost continuous when the cameras were turned off, another ex-Apprentice staffer said.
“I would f--- her, take her now,” Trump said, according to the ex-staffer , adding that “she definitely became something of a sexual obsession to him, and everyone could see it. Again, that wasn’t shocking to anyone on the show. At that point, after many years, it was just him being Trump.
“He would say really gross s--- about her all the time, sometimes in the boardroom — that he said these things about her was the least surprising thing, really,” the source said.
But Roderick defended Trump in an interview with MSNBC last year, saying “he’s never been disrespectful to me. I don’t condone men being derogatory, but I think he was just — he’s on television, he’s trying to be funny I don’t think that he meant anything horrible by it.”
Regardless, Roderick isn’t alone as a victim of Trump’s alleged boorish, and in some cases illegal, behaviour. More than a dozen women have accused Trump of sexual harassment or assault in recent weeks.
And Trump had his own words thrown at him when it was discovered that a microphone caught him bragging in 2005 of being able to grab women “by the p----” because he’s a celebrity.

Donald Trump will win the U.S. election, AI system says
POSTMEDIA NETWORK
First posted: Friday, October 28, 2016 12:41 PM EDT | Updated: Friday, October 28, 2016 01:23 PM EDT
Donald Trump will be the next leader of the free world, according to an artificial intelligence system that has accurately predicted the last three U.S. presidential elections.
The number-crunching AI, called MogIA, analyzes information from sites, such as YouTube, Google, Twitter and Facebook to calculate which way Americans are likely to vote.
Engagement online, including Twitter retweets, Facebook Live views and YouTube video searches, are all included in the equation - and
MogIA reports Trump is out to an impressive lead.
Not only is the Republican nominee beating Hillary Clinton in social media engagement numbers, he is even outpacing Barack Obama's 2008 historic peak campaign numbers - by 25%.
In the last three elections, the candidate who garnered the most engagement data ended up as president, MogIA's calculations showed.
The system's creator, Sanjiv Rai, admitted in a CNBC story , social media data isn't always accurate. Just because someone likes a Trump tweet doesn't mean they agree with him or will vote for him. But since its invention in 2004, Rai said the data cruncher is getting smarter and more accurate.
The system also predicted the outcomes of the most recent Republican and Democratic primaries.
"If Trump loses, it will defy the data trend for the first time in the last 12 years since Internet engagement began in full earnest," Rai wrote in a report, sent to the news station.
Rai also told CNBC Trump's negative feedback online isn't an indicator of how people will vote.
"In the primaries, there were immense amounts of negative conversations that happen with regards to Trump," Rai told the station. "However, when these conversations started picking up pace, in the final days, it meant a huge game opening for Trump and he won the Primaries with a good margin."
MogIA isn't the only positive news for the billionaire nominee.
On Friday, a Bloomberg poll had Trump ahead of Clinton by two points in Florida, and one from The Washington Post/ABC showed Clinton's overall lead narrowing from double digits to just 4%.
One person who will not be surprised by the new numbers is Trump himself, who joked to supporters at a Toledo, Ohio, rally on Thursday that the election was already over - and he was the winner.
"And just thinking to myself right now, we should just cancel the election and just give it to Trump, right?" Trump said, according to the New York Post. "What are we even having it for?”

Police seek Donald Trump supporter allegedly attacked while protecting his Hollywood star
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Los Angeles police are looking for a Donald Trump supporter who was harassed and fell to the ground as she apparently protected the presidential candidate’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star.
A video uploaded to YouTube Thursday shows the woman displaying pro-Trump signs complaining about immigrants and President Barack Obama, The Los Angeles Times reported .
A man bumps against her, she pushes back and falls to the ground, staying there as the crowd jeers.
The video prompted angry calls to police asking why they didn’t intervene.
LAPD Officer Tony Im said Friday that the woman incited the crowd with racial slurs and police at the scene “kept the peace.”
He said police will look for the woman to interview her.
“We had a lot of people upset that we didn’t do anything,” Im said. “If she’s a victim, she has a right to come forward.”
Koali Fikator, who shot and posted the video, wrote on YouTube that the woman told the crowd to “let her be” when some offered help and that she eventually got up and made a new sign disparaging Mexicans and urging people to vote for Trump.
Trump attorney Michael Cohen tweeted Friday that he’s also looking for the woman, saying Trump “has a gift for her.”
A man with a sledgehammer destroyed Trump’s star Wednesday. It’s being repaired.
The man accused of destroying the star, Jamie Otis, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of felony vandalism and released on bail.
After Wednesday’s pre-dawn attack, he told Deadline Hollywood that he originally intended to remove the star. He said he wanted to auction it off to raise funds for women accusing the presidential candidate of groping them. Trump has denied the groping allegations.

The fallout over Billy Bush’s crude comments on a leaked Access Hollywood tape continues – and this time it’s hitting close to home.
The New York Post’s Page Six reports Bush's wife of 18 years, Sydney Davis, is “furious about the tape,” which recorded a conversation Bush had with Donald Trump in 2005.
"It wasn’t just the… vile talk, it’s because he insisted the woman hug him and Trump. It was creepy,” an NBC insider tells Page Six. “She was so furious that she refused to speak with him for a while — and she’s still furious. They are having marriage problems. He didn’t apologize to her for the embarrassment he caused in his statement. And she hasn’t released a statement at all."
Bush has apologized for his role in the tape, which recorded Trump bragging about kissing and grabbing women without repercussions because of his fame. Bush was heard egging him on.
NBC fired Bush from his job on the Today Show after the tape went public.

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — A New Hampshire high school teacher is in hot water after a video surfaced showing her in a classroom dressed as Donald Trump and dancing to a song that included an expletive.
Superintendent Stephen Zadravec tells the Portsmouth Herald that he can’t comment about specifics because it’s a personnel matter, but Portsmouth High School teacher Kara Kelley “is not presently in the classroom.”
Zadravec says there’s no place for offensive language in the school “nor is it our practice in school to support or discredit political candidates.”
The video was posted on some parents’ Facebook pages on Monday. Some commented that the teacher’s actions were “out of bounds” and “inappropriate.”
Kelley did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

Miami Herald Makes DEVASTATING Donald Trump Announcement

Donald Trump: an unregistered sex offender.



The Miami Herald Editorial Board has officially endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for president.

They were quick to note this wasn’t about picking the lesser of two evils. They addressed that first and ended it with a strong insult for Republican presidential nominee alleged unregistered sex offender Donald Trump.

‘It is not about choosing between a bad candidate and a worse one. The narrative that Hillary Clinton is the lesser of two evils is patently wrong. Ms. Clinton is a pragmatic, tough-minded woman of accomplishment and political conviction with a demonstrated mastery of policy. She is politically flawed. However, Donald Trump is a damaged human being.’
Furthermore, they added that the election wasn’t about the common man vs. the elite, which is a common belief that has revolved around this election since the very beginning in the primaries.

The man who could become president next week, Donald Trump, has family ties to the Canadian North. According to a recent article in Maclean’ s, Trump’s grandfather opened the New Arctic Restaurant and Hotel during the Yukon gold rush, spending three profitable years in Bennett, B.C., and Whitehorse.
Fred Trump, who was born in 1869 in Kallstadt, Germany, opened the New Arctic in 1898, offering fresh oysters and “private rooms for ladies” – a reference to prostitution, although Donald Trump has told the New York Times that reports of prostitutes associated with his grandfather’s business are “totally false.”
In the book Trumps: Three Generations that Built an Empire, author Gwenda Blair unearthed a Yukon Sun letter that lauded the food of the New Arctic but warned “respectable ladies” to stay away from the hotel, saying “they are liable to hear that which would be repugnant to their feelings and uttered, too, by the depraved of their own sex.”
In February 1901, Fred Trump left Canada – it was good timing, since the gold rush was over – and returned to Europe, where he found a wife and then moved to New York.

The 69-year-old Apprentice star is the 12th Republican to officially declare a candidacy for the party's nomination in 2016.

In an address that lasted nearly an hour, Mr Trump railed against politicians who he said are "all talk and no action".

"Our enemies are getting stronger and stronger by the day and we as a country are getting weaker," he said.

"This is an election that will be based on competence. People are tired of being ripped off."

He vowed to combine his background as a businessman and his wealth to become the "greatest jobs President that God ever created".

Mr Trump also promised that if elected to the White House he would "repeal and replace the big lie Obamacare" and "build a great wall" on the US southern border.

"I will have Mexico pay for that wall," he added.

Mr Trump's bid for the Oval Office is a longshot according to most political pundits.

Some delusional right wingers believe Trump represents "Christian" values.

A true Christian says otherwise:



An Evangelical Makes Her Case For Clinton - POLITICO Magazine



Earlier this summer, Deborah Fikes, a former executive adviser of the World Evangelical Alliance, which represents some 600 million evangelical Christians in 129 countries, decided she needed to take a stand in the presidential race. Long before the hot-mic tape that would reveal Donald Trump’s propensity for groping women, Fikes determined the real estate mogul simply was unsuitable for the presidency. But the brief essay she wrote in the New York Times didn’t decry Trump’s extremely casual acquaintance with the Bible, his history of marital infidelity and his generally un-Christlike desire to always punch back twice as hard. She made a case that was almost unique among her fellow evangelicals: Hillary Clinton, she argued, was not the lesser of two evils but in actuality the more Christian candidate and therefore far more deserving of their support.
"Many well-intentioned evangelicals have been drawn to the Republican Party platform with the hope of making an impact on culture and voting their values," she wrote. But, “for the first time in my life, I feel compelled to reject my community’s unquestioned political alignment with the G.O.P. and challenge my fellow evangelicals to reconsider.”

Stock markets predicting Trump presidency?
The markets have accurately predicted almost every winner since WWII
By Brad Hunter , 24 Hours
First posted: Wednesday, November 02, 2016 01:08 PM EDT | Updated: Wednesday, November 02, 2016 04:22 PM EDT
Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States if a decades-old predictor’s winning streak continues.
According to the London Independent, U.S. stock markets have accurately predicted the White House winner of every presidential election since the Second World War.
And this year’s winner -- if history has anything to with it -- is a Trump win next Tuesday.
"Going back to World War Two, the S&P 500 performance between July 31 and Oct. 31 has accurately predicted a challenger victory 86% of the time when the stock market performance has been negative,” Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at CFRA Research, told CNBC.
And that’s a dire harbinger for Democratic standard-bearer Hillary Clinton.
The criteria used to come up with the bloviating billionaire being the most powerful man in the world is predicated on a number of things: a falling stock market and the S&P dropping 2.2% the last two months.
Only three times since the end of the war has the formula failed.
If the stock market is in the midst of a bull run, the incumbent party wins 82% of the time, the paper reports.
Only once -- in 1956 -- had the incumbent held on when the stock market is tumbling. And historically, that’s Britain and France attacked Egypt over the Suez Canal.
U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower kept America out of the fray.
Stovall added that the real fear among investors is the Democrats taking the Oval Office, the Senate and the House, making it easier to push through wide-ranging reforms.
"This time around if the Democrats retain the White House, I will come up with two responses. One is that history is a guide but never gospel, and two, the negative performance by the market could be a reflection of the worry of domination that a Democratic sweep would bring,” he said.

'Vote Trump' tagged on Miss. black church hit by arson

JACKSON, Miss. — A police chief in the Mississippi Delta says a “person of interest” is talking to investigators about the torching of an African-American church that was spray-painted with the words “Vote Trump.”
Greenville Police Chief Delando Wilson said the man voluntarily went to the police department, without an attorney, and spoke to detectives Wednesday and Thursday. Wilson stopped short of calling him a suspect and would not release his name, saying Thursday: “We just want to ensure the integrity of the investigation.”
Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church was about 80 per cent destroyed in the fire set intentionally Tuesday night, Greenville Fire Chief Ruben Brown Sr. said.
Investigators found evidence of arson and sent samples of an accelerant to the state crime lab for testing, Brown said. He said there were no signs that any explosive device had been used.
Gov. Phil Bryant, a Republican who has been campaigning for GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, said Wednesday that “anyone who burns a place of worship will answer to almighty God” and “should also answer to man’s law.”
Greenville is a Mississippi River port city of about 32,100 people, and about 78 per cent of its residents are African-American.
The FBI is conducting a civil rights investigation and spokesman Brett Carr has said it’s too early to determine whether the incident can be considered a hate crime.
U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson, whose district includes Greenville, is the top Democrat on the House Homeland Security Committee. He told The Associated Press on Thursday that a member of his staff spoke to the head of the Department of Homeland Security’s intelligence and analysis division about the church fire. Thompson said the department has jurisdiction to investigate cases that might be considered “domestic terrorism.”
“If there is something like the Ku Klux Klan or the Aryan Nation ... we look at that as domestic terrorism,” Thompson said.
The Hopewell congregation is 111 years old and uses a building that has been expanded but still included part of its original structure, Brown said.
The pulpit and pews were burned, and soot stained the beige brick around some windows. Water from hoses and heat from the fire also damaged the church’s kitchen and the pastor’s study.
Pastor Carilyn Hudson promised that the congregation of about 200 members will rebuild. A GoFundMe page, where online donations can be made to pay for repairs to the church, raised about $188,000 by Thursday evening, organizers said.
An $11,000 reward was offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever set the fire.
Greenville Mayor Errick Simmons said a racial reconciliation service that had been planned long before the fire will be held in the city Sunday. He said a diverse group of people took part in an ecumenical prayer service in response to the fire Wednesday night by the Mississippi River waterfront, about four miles from the church. It ended with people hugging and singing, “This Little Light of Mine.”
“Everyone left there peacefully,” Simmons said.

Hacked road sign flashes ’Crooked Hilary,’ ’Vote Trump’

LAKE RIDGE, Va. — A spelling-challenged hacker changed an electronic road sign in Virginia to urge people to “VOTE TRUMP” and skip “CROOKED HILARY.”
Police say the sign, located in Prince William County, flashed a profane term for women in addition to the messages about Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
It was initially placed at the Tackett’s Mill commuter parking lot to encourage people to vote.
Winston Forrest, a spokesman for the county elections office, says a box holding a computer on the side of the rented sign appears to have been left unlocked and tampered with.
Officials say locks have been placed on the remaining voting road signs, and the wrong message was turned off.

Getting the "Ivanka Trump Look" is plastic surgery's latest craze
Postmedia Network

While women across North America are joining the social media campaign #grabyourwallet to boycott Ivanka Trump’s fashion line, two Texas socialites are literally grabbing their wallets and dishing out major cash so they can look like her.
ABC News Nightline reports Tiffany Taylor, 33, a mom of three and Jenny Stuart, 36, a mom of two have spent thousands to get the “Ivanka Trump Look.”
Ivanka Trump’s looks haven’t been lost on her father Donald Trump, either. He’s raised a few eyebrows with comments saying she has “the best body” and that perhaps he’d date her if she wasn’t his daughter.
According to the Sun UK, Taylor likes “Ivanka Trump’s classic features and that is what I’m kind of modelling the look after.” She told ABC that she’s had more than $80,000 worth of plastic surgery. Some of her procedures include cheek injections, having her eyelids done, a new nose job and a “mini eye lift, and then my chin area lifted up to help with my acne scars and define the chin and I also had lipo in my stomach.”
Stuart, who told ABC that she gets compared to Angelina Jolie when she goes out, opted to have her nose done, got liposuction and preserved the fat for a Brazilian butt lift, she also got fillers in her face and breast implants - all to the tune of $40,000.
Houston-based plastic surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose who’s worked on both Taylor and Stuart told ABC that he is getting an increase in requests from ladies wanting to get the “Ivanka Look.” Rose said, “She's very beautiful and she's very poised … and very elegant and very soft-spoken. So patients want to be like that.”
Hopefully, both ladies don’t have buyers’ remorse like Claire Leeson from the UK who spent $30,000 to look like Kim Kardashian. Leeson told the Sun UK: “I’m sick and tired of being compared to Kim Kardashian, I am my own person,” after being called out on social media.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering how Stuart is planning to vote, the answer may surprise you. Stuart told ABC she cast an early ballot for Hillary Clinton.
“It might seem ironic to some I’ve spent all this time and money to try and look like Ivanka, who I still adore and I think she’s gorgeous and a good business woman, but I don’t associate her with father,” Stuart told ABC. “I cannot possibly condone his behavior even though I have historically voted Republican … so I voted for Hillary.”

More Americans set their career sights north of the border
Michelle McQuigge, THE CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO — A growing number of Americans are setting their career sights north of the border, according to government and other data, and experts believe that is partly due to the spectre of a Donald Trump presidency.
Data from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) shows a significant spike in the number of work permits being granted to American residents.
The number of people receiving Canadian work permits in the first eight months of the year soared 54 per cent over the same period in 2015.
Both the government and immigration lawyers say there have not been any policies to account for the increase.
Elsewhere, job seeking company Monster Worldwide released figures showing the number of American site users searching for jobs based in Canada has surged 58 per cent so far in 2016.
Experts say they suspect the uptick in people both expressing interest and actually obtaining jobs in Canada is a direct result of the U.S. election and the hostile political climate that likely won’t dissipate once the ballots are counted.
Brett Bruin, who once worked as the director of global engagement for U.S. President Barack Obama and now works as a consultant for businesses setting up outside the United States, said Canada is a particularly appealing destination for Americans whose political views skew to the left.
The prospect of a Trump presidency is a likely factor in the exodus of American workers heading north, he said, while conceding that the polarizing election has likely motivated some of Hillary Clinton’s detractors to cast their employment nets a little wider as well.
“Americans by and large are concerned on both sides of the political isle, and that anxiety is starting to spill over in a more serious consideration of what kind of country they, and perhaps even more significantly they want their children, to grow up in,” he said in a telephone interview.
Bruin said Canada’s potential appeal is broad based. The geographical proximity and cultural similarities to the U.S. make it easy to acclimatize to for both workers and their families.
Canada’s current left-leaning government and its inclusive immigration policies, he said, add further appeal and stand in particular contrast to some of the dialog that’s dominated the recent U.S. election.
The increase in Canadian-bound workers has been significant in the first eight months of the year, according to IRCC.
The ministry issued 22,274 work permits to American residents from January through August of 2016, up 54 per cent from the 14,486 granted over the same period the year before.
The ministry would not speculate on the cause, but said it has not relaxed admission requirements or adopted any other procedural changes that would account for the spike.
Immigration lawyer Henry Chang of Toronto’s Blaney McMurtry believes political considerations lie at the heart of the surge.
He said work permits offer a comparatively easy way for wary Americans to take a short-term break from their home country, since requirements for such a document are much less stringent than for permanent residency.
Chang noted that the spike in permits being issued was particularly pronounced early in 2016, around the time Trump emerged as the likely Republican presidential nominee.
“If they assume that Donald Trump would win only one term, they only need to remain in status here for four years and then they can go back,” Chang said. “Many work permits are issued for up to three years initially and can be extended well beyond four years.”
The Monster data suggests that even people who have not taken the step of moving to Canada for work have at least toyed with the idea.
Monster users searched for the keyword “Canada” less than 20,000 times in all of 2015, but internal company data said that number had jumped to more than 30,000 between January and October 2016. Monster pegs the increase at 58 per cent in total.
Bruin suspects that interest in Canada will not wane after the election, citing the divisive campaign and hostile rhetoric as factors that may have made some Americans ask some fundamental questions about the country they’ve called home.
“We have done some rather irreparable harm, at least over the short term, to Americans’ core beliefs in the principles, the people, the institutions that have been pillars in our understanding of the country we live in and the confidence that we have in it,” he said. “That doesn’t change after Nov. 8.”

Priest makes appeal for Trump by putting aborted fetus on altar in live Facebook video
Sarah Pulliam Bailey, Washington Post
First posted: Tuesday, November 08, 2016 09:37 AM EST | Updated: Tuesday, November 08, 2016 09:56 AM EST
Editor's Note: The following story contains graphic images.
Ahead of Tuesday's presidential election, the Rev. Frank Pavone took an aborted fetus, laid it upon an altar Sunday and posted a live video on Facebook . Pavone, a Catholic priest who heads New York-based Priests for Life, said the fetus was entrusted to him by a pathologist for burial.
During an already heated and divisive campaign season, Pavone's video has raised questions for some about what is appropriate antiabortion and political activism in the church. As of Monday afternoon, the video, which is 44 minutes long, had 236,000 views. In it, he holds up a poster of graphics of abortion procedures.
In Pavone's Facebook appeal, he wrote, "we have to decide if we will allow this child killing to continue in America or not. Hillary Clinton and the Democratic platform says yes, let the child-killing continue (and you pay for it); Donald Trump and the Republican platform says no, the child should be protected."
A call placed to the spokesman for the Diocese of Amarillo in Texas, which is Pavone's diocese, was not immediately returned Monday. The receptionist, however, said her phone has been ringing off the hook.
In a blog post for Patheos, Scott Eric Alt argued that what Pavone did was sacrilege, a violation of Catholic Church canon law, which states that the altar is "reserved for divine worship alone, to the exclusion of any secular usage."
"Being pro-life is about respecting the dignity of the human person," Alt wrote. "It is the antithesis of respect for the dignity of the human person to use a dead child as a political prop to lobby for your presidential candidate the day before an election."
Pavone is a high-profile antiabortion activist who has clashed with leadership within the Catholic Church. In 2014, Cardinal Timothy Dolan cut ties with the priest after Dolan suggested that Pavone had stonewalled financial reform within his organization, which is based out of Staten Island. A spokesperson for Dolan, who is also chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on Pro-Life Activities, said the archdiocese does not have a relationship with Pavone and has no comment on the video.
In a blog post for the Archdiocese of New York, Ed Mechmann wrote about the "revulsion" he felt about the video.
"A human being has been sacrificed and the altar of God has been desecrated, all for politics," he wrote. "Everyone who respects the dignity of every human person should reject and disavow this atrocity."
Trump has been a divisive candidate for antiabortion activists, who have tried to keep women at the forefront. Earlier this year, the GOP candidate suggested that women who have abortions should be punished, a position he later reversed.
If anything, Pavone's actions are a signal that the older antiabortion groups are on their way out, said Charles Camosy, a bioethics professor at Fordham University and a board member of Democrats for Life of America. The use of graphic images has been a divisive issue in the antiabortion movement, and Camosy said Monday that nearly everyone he knows, including conservatives, have condemned Pavone's video.
"This plays into the narrative so many people have of us, that this is a bunch of wild extremists who will put an aborted fetus on Facebook Live. Come on!" Camosy said. "This is the death rattle for the culture-war-focused pro-life movement."
The video comes after a group of Catholics inserted fliers into parish bulletins in San Diego claiming that a vote for a Democrat is a mortal sin. San Diego's Bishop Robert McElroy criticized the flier.
And on Saturday, Pope Francis condemned the political use of fear and the building of walls, describing the refugee crisis as "a problem of the world" and urging political leaders to do more.
