From Wikipedia:

He is also a director of TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation as well as the son of Ameritrade founder J. Joseph Ricketts. Forbes estimate of the Ricketts' family wealth ($1 Billion), consolidated under J. Joseph Ricketts name, placed them at #371/ 400 on the Forbes 400 list.


  1. This seems pretty close to extortion. Trump gains financial advantage from threatening to disclose information.

  2. ─They better be careful, they have a lot to hide!─

    And I am sure they're trembling in their knickers, El Trumpo.

  3. Rename Air Force One to Pinochet Airlines when Trump gets elected.

  4. You people don't know huge balls when they smack you in the face

    1. Re: GrimFandangeo,

      I'm glad to say I do not, indeed.

  5. Seems DonaldT knows something big about the Ricketts family, that may put them out of business? Please do tell! They own a bank--that tells alot.
    Go get'um Trump!

  6. Trump -- for all his imperfections and flaws -- scare the crap out of the gangster elite who lord over the government-media-academic-banking complex...

    I shall hold my nose and vote for him. No way we can tolerate scum like the Clintons.

  7. well he didn't skip a beat after threatening the pope, so how wouldn't he feel unstoppable? byyyah!

  8. Pete Ricketts of the Ricketts family is governor of Nebraska. He is likely getting GOP pressure for funding in exchange for a future hopeful senate bid or cabinet consideration.
