The many mansions and penthouses that the US Presidential candidates call home

The homes (since most own more than one) and mortgages of the 2016 presidential candidates. Some of the presidential candidates live like royalty, while others are more grounded.




When the US sets a regime change operation into motion, either in Iraq or Ukraine, one of the standard playbook moves is to show the former, corrupt “dictator’s crib”, while main stream media transmits pictures of outrage from the deposed despot’s home…for western zombie consumption.

Now that the US Presidential campaign is in full force, here are the lavish palaces (some candidates like Queen Hillary and Trump have multiple properties), and modest homes, of the candidates seeking to take up residence in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest, Washington, DC.

With homeownership rates at multi-decade lows, and the American Dream disappearing for most, it appears it pays to be in government – from Trump Tower and Clinton’s Compounds to Bernie Sanders’ underwater mortgages and Carly Fiorina’s five fireplaces…

Sen. Hillary Clinton (Democrat)


Chappaqua, N.Y.

Former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State and Sen. Hillary Clinton own a five-bedroom, four-bathroom Dutch colonial–style home in Westchester County built in 1889 that was assessed at $375,000 in 2014. The home at 15 Old House Lane has 5,232 square feet of living area. Public records show the home was purchased in 1999 for $1.7 million with an adjustable-rate first mortgage of $1.4 million, according to CoreLogic. Zillow estimates the market value today at $2.3 million. (The low tax assessment for the home compared with its market value is another example of New York state’s well-documented phenomenon of inconsistent tax assessment schedules.)


Washington, D.C.

The Clinton’s four-bedroom, six-bath (plus and two half-baths) home at 3067 Whitehaven St. in Washington, D.C., is two and a half stories with 5,152 square feet of living space and a brick exterior. Built in 1951 near Washington’s Embassy Row, the house was purchased by the Clintons in 2001 for $2.85 million, financing $2 million of that sum with a 30-year adjustable rate mortgage at 7.25% from Citibank with a down payment of $855,000. A Satisfaction of Mortgage filed in 2007 indicates it was paid off. The house was valued for the 2014 tax year at $5,049,180, and its projected assessment for 2016 is $5,225,900, according to CoreLogic. Zillow estimates the house to have a market value of $5.76 million.

Gov. Martin O’Malley (Democrat)



Martin O’Malley and his wife, Katie, purchased a four-bedroom, four-bath, 2,726-square-foot Tudor house at 5304 Tilbury Way in the Homeland section of North Baltimore in December 2014 for their family, which includes four children. They paid $549,000 in 2014, with a 30-year first mortgage of $494,100, according to CoreLogic. The two-story house was built in 1928 and has a stone fireplace, nine-foot ceilings and a cherry-paneled family room.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (Democrat)


Burlington, Vt.

The colonial-style home was built in 1981 and sold to Sanders in 2009 for $405,000, according to CoreLogic. The property has a 2013 assessed value of $321,900.

Washington, D.C.

Sanders and his wife also own a town house in the District. The 892-square-foot, one-bedroom, 1 ½-bath home with brick exterior was built in 1890. They bought it for $488,999 in 2007. The first mortgage was a 30-year conventional adjustable-rate mortgage for $391,200 at 5.88%. Records indicate there is also a $73,350 second mortgage on the property. The house has a taxable assessment of $480,970 for 2014 and a projected assessment in 2016 of $521,660.

Gov. Jeb Bush (Republican)


Coral Gables, Fla.

The former governor of Florida and his wife, Columba, live in the development of Almeria Row in Coral Gables, a suburb of Miami. They purchased their 3,485-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bath town house in August 2011 for $1.3 million. Its assessed value in 2014 was $1.1 million. In July 2013, the Bushes refinanced their mortgage to a 30-year conventional loan for $754,000, according to CoreLogic.

Sen. Marco Rubio (Republican)


West Miami, Fla.

The Florida senator, his wife, Jeanette, and their four children live in a four-bedroom, three-bath house in West Miami. The single-family home has 2,581 square feet of living area and was built in 2005. The Rubios paid $550,000. It has a porch, brick patio and swimming pool. After listing the house in 2013 for $675,000, the Rubios didn’t end up selling. In June 2015, they refinanced to a 30-year mortgage for $604,000. In 2014, the total value of the home was assessed at $430,936, according to CoreLogic and Zillow. Zillow estimates the house would sell today for $569,749.

Gov. Chris Christie (Republican)


Mendham, N.J.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has been in office since 2010, but he, his wife, Mary Pat, and their four children don’t live in the official New Jersey governor’s residence. The family lives in their 6,979-square-foot house in Mendham, N.J., which they bought in August 1998 for $775,000. Public records show the first mortgage was for $300,000 — a conventional, fixed-rate loan. They have since refinanced five times. The most recent loan was recorded in October 2008 for $400,000 — it is a 30-year adjustable-rate loan. The property assessed in 2014 for a total of $1.9 million and a market value of $2 million, according to CoreLogic.

The junior senator, his wife, Heidi, and their two daughters live in a two-bedroom, 2 ½-bath luxury high-rise condominium unit with views of Houston, including the skyline.

Media personality and commercial property developer Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, live on Trump Tower’s top three floors, which are lavishly decorated in 24-karat gold and marble. The home was designed by Angelo Donghia in a style reminiscent of King Louis XIV with painted ceilings, ornate columns, opulent furnishings and crystal chandeliers. Trump took out a $100 million mortgage on the entire tower in 2012, New York City public records show.

Palm Beach, Fla.

The Mar-A-Lago Club in Palm Beach was initially a 126-room, 110,000-square-foot estate that Trump bought for $10 million in 1985. After a renovation, the home is said to have 58 bedrooms, 33 bathrooms, a 29-foot-long marble-top dining table, 12 fireplaces and three bomb shelters. Trump keeps private residential quarters at the club, which he calls his “home away from home.”

He transferred the property to Mar-A-Lago Club Inc. in 1995 with a $10 million mortgage,according to CoreLogic.

ABC’s Ted Koppel admits mainstream media bias against Trump [Video]

The mainstream news media has traded informing the public for indoctrinating them, but the change got called out by an “old-school” journo.

Seraphim Hanisch



Fox News reported on March 19th that one of America’s most well-known TV news anchors, Ted Koppel, noted that the once-great media outlets like The New York Times and The Washington Post, have indeed traded journalistic excellence for hit pieces for political purposes. While political opinions in the mainstream press are certainly within the purview of any publication, this sort of writing can hardly be classified as “news” but as “Opinion” or more widely known, “Op-Ed.”

We have two videos on this. The first is the original clip showing the full statement that Mr. Koppel gave. It is illuminating, to say the least:

Tucker Carlson and Brit Hume, a former colleague of Mr. Koppel, added their comments on this admission in this second short video piece, shown here.

There are probably a number of people who have watched this two-year onslaught of slander and wondered why there cannot be a law preventing this sort of misleading reporting. Well, Russia passed a law to stop it, hitting dishonest media outlets in their pocketbook. It is a smart law because it does not advocate imprisonment for bad actors in the media, but it does fine them.

Going to prison for reporting “the truth” looks very noble. Having to pay out of pocket for it is not so exciting.

Newsmax and Louder with Crowder both reported on this as well.

This situation of dishonest media has led to an astonishing 77% distrust rating among Americans of their news media, this statistic being reported by Politico in 2018. This represents a nearly diametric reversal in trust from the 72% trust rating the country’s news viewers gave their news outlets in 1972. These statistics come from Gallup polls taken through the years.

Lori Loughlin’s daughter was aboard USC official’s yacht in Bahamas when mom was charged

Lori Loughlin’s daughter was on the yacht of USC’s Board of Trustees when her mom was accused in scheme.

Via Fox News

Lori Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli was spending spring break on a University of Southern California official’s yacht when her mother was accused Tuesday of involvement in a college admissions scheme, reports said.

Giannulli, 19, was on Rick Caruso’s luxury yacht Invictus in the Bahamas, a report said. Caruso is chairman of USC’s Board of Trustees.

Giannulli, who currently attends USC, was with Caruso’s daughter Gianna and several other friends, the outlet reported.

“My daughter and a group of students left for spring break prior to the government’s announcement yesterday,” Caruso told TMZ. “Once we became aware of the investigation, the young woman decided it would be in her best interests to return home.”

Loughlin’s daughter has since returned to Los Angeles to face the allegations that could result in her getting expelled from USC.

USC’s Board of Trustees will not decide the status of Giannulli and the other students involved in the case, but rather, the university’s president will make the decisions, according to TMZ.

Business deals in jeopardy?

Giannulli is a YouTube beauty vlogger and social media star, but in the midst of her mother’s charges, she may lose the lucrative brand-sponsorship deals she has landed over the years, Variety reported.

HP, having cut ties with Giannulli, said in a statement, “HP worked with Lori Loughlin and Olivia Jade in 2017 for a one-time product campaign. HP has removed the content from its properties.”

Giannulli also cut brand deals with partners including Amazon, Dolce & Gabbana, Lulus, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Sephora, Smashbox Beauty Cosmetics, Smile Direct Club, Too Faced Cosmetics, Boohoo, and Unilever’s TRESemmé, the report said.

Giannulli’s rep declined to comment, Variety reported. Estée Lauder Companies, which owns Smashbox and Too Faced, also declined to comment, while the other brands or companies the magazine reached out to did not immediately respond to their requests for comment.

$250M Lawsuit Against CNN Imminent; Covington High MAGA Student Suffered “Direct Attacks”

CNN will be the second MSM outlet sued over their reporting of the incident, after Sandmann launched a $250 million lawsuit against the Washington Post in late February. 



Via Zerohedge

CNN is about to be sued for more than $250 million for spreading fake news about 16-year-old Covington High School student Nicholas Sandmann.

Sandmann was viciously attacked by left-leaning news outlets over a deceptively edited video clip from the January March for Life rally at the Lincoln Memorial, in which the MAGA-hat-wearing teenager appeared to be mocking a Native American man beating a drum. Around a day later, a longer version of the video revealed that Sandmann did absolutely nothing wrong – after the media had played judge, jury and executioner of Sandmann’s reputation.

CNN will be the second MSM outlet sued over their reporting of the incident, after Sandmann launched a $250 million lawsuit against the Washington Post in late February.

Speaking with Fox News host Mark Levin in an interview set to air Sunday, Sandmann’s attorney, L. Lin Wood, said “CNN was probably more vicious in its direct attacks on Nicholas than The Washington Post. And CNN goes into millions of individuals’ homes. It’s broadcast into their homes.”

They really went after Nicholas with the idea that he was part of a mob that was attacking the Black Hebrew Israelites, yelling racist slurs at the Black Hebrew Israelites,” continued Wood. “Totally false. Saying things like that Nicholas was part of a group that was threatening the Black Hebrew Israelites, that they thought it was going to be a lynching.”

Why didn’t they stop and just take an hour and look through the internet and find the truth and then report it?” Wood asked. “Maybe do that before you report the lies. They didn’t do it. They were vicious. It was false. CNN will be sued next week, and the dollar figure in the CNN case may be higher than it was [against] The Washington Post.”
