Do you want to understand Donald Trump, past, present, and future? Read this.

Ten years ago New York real estate developer Donald Trump wrote a book called 'Trump. Think Big and Kick Ass'. Today he's President of the United States of America Donald Trump. And the line of people with sore asses includes Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, the entire Democratic Party, the Republican Party establishment, and pretty much most of the news media.  They should have read his book. We did. To help you understand Donald Trump past, present and future, we've culled  thirty-three Trump tips to attain the top: "  * I love to crush the other side and take the benefits. Why? Because there is nothing greater. For me it is even better than sex, and I love sex. * In a great deal you win---not the other side. You crush your opponent and come away with something better for yourself. In negotiations I go for the complete win. * I have learned that it is important to focus on the solution, not the problem. If you put all your energy into the problem,

Katz and Sheegl. Forensic Files: Winnipeg Style.

What a week!   There were so many stories breaking last week that we could hardly sit down to write about one when another came whizzing up.    We were so exhausted trying to keep up that we had to take the weekend off in Costa Rica to catch our breaths.    We were working 90 percent of the time, honest. Without further ado, let's try to catch up...starting with Forensic Files: Winnipeg Style. Can you believe it?    The former Mayor of Winnipeg and his best friend, once the most powerful civil servant in the city, have lawyered up and are waiting to be charged by the RCMP with taking kickbacks.    The pool on the day of the perp walk starts now.

Details of the building case against ex-mayor Sam Katz and his pal Phil Sheegl are contained in applications for RCMP search warrants, which have been widely reported.    Robert Tapper, Katz's and Sheegl's mouthpiece, has added additional incriminating information, without knowing it.
