Is Trump's wife a mail order bride?

Post by lawrencemcdonald on Sat Aug 20, 2016 4:19 am

Melanija Knavs, was born in 1970  in Yugoslavia, now know as Slovenia.   Knavs  studied design and architecture at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia. She then worked as a model for fashion houses in Milan and Paris before relocating to New York City in 1996.

After moving to New York City , Knavs supposedly met Donald Trump at a Fashion Week party in New York City in September 1998. Their relationship gained attention after a 1999 interview on The Howard Stern Show, and additional publicity after the 2004 launch of Trump's successful business-oriented reality television show, The Apprentice. Donald Trump described their long courtship in 2005: "We literally have never had an argument, forget about the word 'fight' . We just are very compatible. We get along."
After becoming engaged in 2004, Donald Trump and Melania Knavs were married on January 22, 2005, at The Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, Florida, followed by a reception in the 17,000-sq.-ft ballroom at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate.

Trump has always stated he met his wife  Melanija  at a fashion week party in 1998.   But Anna Novak a matchmaker who operated an office in Slovenia for several "Mail Order Bride" companies,   including a company called  A Foreign Affair,  says she received a call sometime around 1995  from the head office to help arrange a call between a female member Melanija, and A VIP  client she only knew as Donald.   Shortly after the call, Melanija asked to be removed as a member and to have her profile completely removed from the websites.

If this was truly "The Donald" and the "Melanija" then why the secrecy? Trump was married at the time, even when they met each at the Fashion Week party.  It is not a secret that Trump has had a long history of infidelity,  When married  to  his first wife, Czech model Ivana Zelní Ková, he had an affair with actress Marla Maples, In 1992  Ivana's and Donald's divorce was finalized, shortly thereafter Donald sued Ivana for $25 million, alleging she was not honoring a gag clause in their divorce agreement by disclosing facts about him.    Maples and Donald were  married  the following year after his first divorce on December 20, 1993.  The couple's divorce finalized in June 1999,  nearly one year after the Fashion Week party where supposedly Donald met Melanija for the first time.

A spoke's person for  A Foreign Affair' in Phoenix AZ,  says. "We have a strict confidentiality policy so we can not make any comments about  any member or client."   They did admit they do help many rich and or famous clients find love overseas.

Most Europeans loathe Donald Trump and fear that if he becomes POTUS, he will make the world a much more dangerous place than it is already. It’s hard to believe that so many suckers can see that vile specimen as ‘anti-establishment’, even though he is a billionaire. But then again we saw something similar in our recent EU referendum campaign, with Old Etonian Boris Johnson and Rupert Murdoch’s stooge Michael Gove posing as champions of the ordinary folk and promising to “give them their country back”.

As an editorial in ‘The Washington Post’ explained: “Trump has threatened that those who criticise him will suffer when he is president. He has vowed to torture suspected terrorists and bomb their innocent relatives……..He has encouraged and celebrated violence at his rallies. He campaigns by insult and denigration, insinuation and wild accusation. The Republican Party has moved the lunatic fringe onto centre stage."

I think those are the issues on which to attack Trump. Maybe his third wife is just a case of an immigrant being brought in to the USA to do a job which no American woman wanted to do? Shocked

It would be interesting to know what words were used in his 3 wedding ceremonies, given that his daughter has clearly stated the 'His word is his bond'.......?

Does it matter if Melania was a mail order bride? Not as far as I'm concerned.

Honestly, neither Clinton or Trump are good candidates, although Trump certainly is the worst of the two. He doesn't know the meaning of the word "diplomatic", and refuses to think before he speaks. Not only does it end up making him look like an diot or worse, I fully believe it will get him (and our country) into hot water.

I don't plan to vote for either one.

I know the feeling. On this side of the Pond I have been choosing the "least worst" candidate for my vote for what feels like half a lifetime.

But hope springs eternal.

My "least worst" candidate will have to be third party. Sigh.

At last Nigel Farage has emerged to defend the ordinary billionaires of the world, such as Donald Trump

From an article by Mark Steel:-

If Nigel Farage and Donald Trump continue this new alliance, it could be a thrilling contest as they fight to outdo each other. Trump will open a rally with “Let me tell you, Muslims frighten potatoes, their beards make them go mouldy – and that’s a fact. So if you want to stop a famine, you better vote for Donald Trump.” Then Farage will respond: “That’s right Donald, and they go every year to Mecca to squirt Domestos at pandas. That’s what they’re doing out there and it has to stop.”

Trump will storm into the lead with “Hey, you know it’s interesting, there are some scientists, and they’ve found that Mexicans are a species of greenfly”, and Nigel will retort, “Yes, and foreigners are up to 80% more combustible than people who live in the country they were born in.” The crowd will be screaming, as Trump booms, “hijabs set volcanoes off”, and Farage yells, “when Barack Obama came to England he made all the fish die. But they don’t want you to know, so they replaced them all from the Queen’s aquarium and hid the truth as usual.”

Farage ended his speech with a cry to defeat the establishment. This was the most heartfelt moment of all; no-one has had to fight harder against the establishment than Trump. His father was a common salt-of-the-earth property developer, much like Farage whose humble background at Dulwich College private school led to long hours on the stockbroking shop floor.

Has Political language failed?

Today's Guardian "Review" has an interesting explanation from Mark Thompson (former DG of the BBC) for current events on both sides of the Atlantic. He suggests that the bombastic style of speech from Donald Trump - and to a lesser extent the Brexit campaigners - is the inevitable response to a growing feeling on the part of electors that no politician's words can be believed. He describes it as the language of Dictators and Despots, keen to set themselves apart by the use of apparent certainties in short definitive statements admitting no argument.

I agree with moonbeam that it’s of no relevance whether Melania Trump was a mail order bride. Of far greater importance are stories like this:-

Trump’s mob-linked ex-associate gives $5,400 to campaign

A Russian-born, mafia-linked businessman whose ties to both Donald Trump and loyalists of Russian President Vladimir Putin have sparked scrutiny, visited Trump Tower in July for undisclosed business. The businessman, Felix Sater, also donated the maximum allowable contribution to Trump’s presidential campaign, according to the campaign’s most recent FEC filing.

http://www.politico.com/story/2016/08/donald-trump-russia-felix-sater-227434

We should focus on Donald, not Melania, Trump, and in particular on his character and his policies. Adam Bienkov has written a neat summary:-

This is a man who in addition to calling for a ban on all Muslims entering the US, labelled Mexican immigrants as rapists, called for the expulsion of millions of Americans whose parents or grandparents happened to be illegal immigrants and used racist insults against his opponents. In the meantime he called for anti-Trump protesters to be beaten up, hinted at a crackdown against the press, raised the prospect of the US launching nuclear weapons, even against European countries, and suggested that his presidential rival could be assassinated. In short, he is a dangerous demagogue and fascist whose potential election would, in the words of one US commentator, be an "extinction-level event".

On a lighter note, this gargoyle in Southwell Minster was carved 700 years ago. Does it remind you of anyone?  Question

No less an authority than Sharon Osbourne has said that all Donald ever intended was to increase awareness of "Brand Trump".

(and now like a Sorcerer's Apprentice, he doesn't know how to stop it.)
