trump compressedThis weekend, while many of us were unwrapping holiday presents, Donald Trump announced that he would be wrapping up his Trump Foundation, and in doing so, recognized the perception of a conflict of interest is an issue. However, the New York Attorney General said, not so fast—the foundation is under investigation, so, it cannot be dissolved.

It is under investigation because there is evidence of self-dealing, using the foundation, a charitable organization to serve Trump’s own personal and business purposes.

There are three issues needing to be discussed involving potential conflict of interests—the Trump kids business and charitable organizations, Donald Trump’s foundation and his own business interests that are to be run by the two Trump sons.

Trump is not pleased that his kids cannot continue their charitable giving.  However, he has made them personal extensions of his governmental powers by bringing them in the transition. Also, if news reports are proven true, they will continue to be his business arm and legs and everything they do whether it is charitable fundraising or agreements with major corporations and foreign interests will be scrutinized.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
