Palm Beach Car Dealers Host Noem Fundraiser at Glitzy Seaside Mansion October 14

Part-time Governor, full-time campaigner Kristi Noem’s East Cost itinerary may be back on as well. Austin Goss finds a flyer for an October 14 fundraiser in Palm Beach, Florida, for one of Kristi Noem’s federal PACs:

Amanda and Charles Schumacher are big-wheel car dealers in Palm Beach. They will host Noem in their luxurious seaside Vita Serena mansion, which they bought through their revocable trust for $10 million and renovated for another $13.5 million. The poster does not clearly state that Noem herself will attend the event, but at $5,000 a head to get in the gate and $25,000 to be called “host”, attendees may rightly expect more than a Zoom call. And how could Kristi pass up the chance to get decorating tips in person from Amanda?

Say, speaking of decorating, one Amanda Schumacher spent $25,000 on a Michael Shellis painting of Donald Trump molesting an American flag. The molestation took place at CPAC 2020; the painting purchase took place at CPAC in Dallas in July 2021, the same CPAC where Kristi Noem talked about praying in school and lied about being a nurse.

Noem’s October 14 Palm Beach fundraiser takes place just a half-mile up South Ocean Boulevard from Donald Trump’s house at Mar-a-Lago.

    I guess “Thoughts and Prayers” worked for Kristi’s back

    West side gets obliterated and our gov is attending fund raisers on the east side…

    Cheaper and more in line with the rugged look to help remove gators and snakes from flooded properties on the west side. (Better publicity imo.)
    Could even carry a side arm in a holster for more wow factor.

    No wonder they hold fundraisers for away from South Dakota. $5000 just to attend? Not many in her “home” state could afford this luxury much less actually spend $5000 for an hour.

    Ol’ Mandy spent $25,000 on that painting of the former guy dry-humping the flag? Joke’s on her if she couldn’t recognize the obvious irony of the “artwork.” Bet her friends and neighbors are sniggering behind her back; this is just too hilarious.
    And speaking of backs, I certainly sent plenty of thoughts Kristi’s way.

    After surgeries 2, 3, and 4, I had 2 months recuperation time before back to farming.

  6. Ryan 2022-10-04 08:50

    the hands on that mrs. schumaker are absolutely terrifying.

  7. Loren 2022-10-04 08:50

    Really, folks, would ya’ll buy a governor from a car salesman? Think, people, think! Geezlouise!

  8. Bob Newland 2022-10-04 09:00

    Here, now, Ryan. We are not going to resort to hand-shaming. That’s a Trumpistic affectation.

  9. Bill Poppen 2022-10-04 09:29

    Ann Schumacher says that “people are the highest commodity we have in this world.” I’ve seldom heard people referred to as “a commodity.” Is she buying herself a “politician?”

  10. Bonnie B Fairbank 2022-10-04 10:01

    Well, Bob, I’M gonna draw some totally good-natured facial parallels here between Mrs. Schumacher and a former First lady.
    Behold the perky li’l nose; gaze in awe at the perfectly sculpted cheekbones, languish over those rictus lips, and swoon over those squinchy not-at-all artificially slanted eyes and brows.
    Is it possible Amanda and Melania share a taxidermi – I mean, plastic surgeon?
    Yeah, meow, everybody. Maybe don’t take your Barbie doll to your not quite board certified doctor for a template. Common sense is not always body shaming (but, sometimes it is.)

  11. Anne 2022-10-04 10:45

    People are the commodity in the slave trade.

    Nowadays, cosmetic surgeons should go by face dressers. Us proportionate gals use one another’s hair dressers and glean gossip. In Anti Kristi’s realm, they employ each other’s face dressers and use the same @ss lard for their cheek implants. I’m only guessing because I have cut my own hair since 6th grade and file down my own chipped front tooth after a brawl. People at that fundraising ball are so far removed from the actual human experience, nothing good for real people can come from electing them for anything other than cat food testers.

    Beautiful painting of a beautiful moment. Brandon had face surgery too.

  14. Arlo Blundt 2022-10-04 13:31

    Grotesque. It’s a bad Harold Robbins novel come to life. In fact, its a bad movie made from a Harold Robbins novel starring Joan Collins. The Carpetbaggers comes to mind.

  15. larry kurtz 2022-10-04 14:18

    East Coast elites? Priceless.

  16. Bonnie B Fairbank 2022-10-04 16:46

    LCJ: I’ve a bad habit of not reading every word or following every link Cory provides us, but I can’t find any mention of a Mr./Mrs. Brandon anywhere in this article, so I don’t understand your reference. I had face surgery in 1982 if you consider stitches after a stab wound surgery.

    A “beautiful painting of a beautiful moment?” Now you’re just being tasteless and probably bought John Wayne Gacy’s paintings, too.

    I think that Schumacher woman has a very nice grift going.

    $5k is about 1/8 of an average SD teachers salary…

    Funny HydroGuy!

    Not funny is the reference to people as the highest commodity in the world. What the hell does Schumacher mean? Humans are not agricultural products or useful things.

    All this fund raising is white collar crime that’s legal for the masters. Throw in a little or a lot of laundered money. And what kind of cars do these people sell?

    Seems like Noem loves Florida and Texas the most. I do believe many of the swindlers who have hidden their money in S.D. trusts live there. How did Noem meet these people?

    Lastly, keep an eye out for Noem’s hands. She may Botox her hands as well.

    Noem needs to be part of the planet solution.

    UN secretary general Antonio Guterres … targeting the colossal profits being reaped by the oil and gas industry at the moment. “The fossil fuel industry is feasting on subsidies and windfall profits, while household budgets shrink and our planet burns,” he said last week. “I call on all developed economies to tax the windfall profits.”

    She needs to clearly prod Schumachers to back zero fossil fuel auto emissions immediately.

    Gueterres: “The fossil fuel industry is killing us.” Another leader speaking out against fossil fuels is Pope Francis. Such attacks provide hope by eroding the legitimacy of the powerful sector, which has continually worked to block climate action.

    Oh, my aching back. Do something good Noem. How close to a trillion dollars in taxable assets us SD trust industry hiding?

    What needs to happen at COP27 is for finance facilities for loss and damage and for adaptation to be established,” says Siddiqa, a campaigner with Fridays For Future Pakistan. “It is central to the whole thing.”
    For years, major nations like the US have blocked such funding, fearing unlimited liability. But there is movement, with Denmark this month becoming the first national government to commit loss and damage funds.

    Holy scha-MOLEY, M – Your last sentence about Noem possibly botoxing her hands? I had no idea that was a thing, so I looked it up. Yep. The author ran through a list of options from unnamed surgery centers to doctors, the final being just go to a pharmacy and someone will inject you, presumably by the blood pressure machine in the vitamin aisle. That scared me so badly I involuntarily squeaked.

    Oracle’s cofounder is bankrolling a super PAC that is spending millions to support four prominent Senate candidates who have cast doubt on the 2020 presidential election results.

    in a related post lcj casts aspersions on “pelosi[‘s] pac but doesn’t mention billionaire larry ellison, owner of one of major eight hawaiian islands!

    i believe Cory censored lcj’s juvenile name-calling posts, and whose snark has now gone silent here afaik.

    Anyone who truly knows Amanda knows she has a huge heart and truly cares and wants to help the world to be a better kind and loving place…With great wealth comes great responsibility…Very few could manage to do what she does to help those in need…it’s easy to ridicule someone based upon a lack of the knowledge of the truth…! She doesn’t mind getting her (hands) dirty and spending time with the hurting and homeless in South Florida…She has been doing it for several years…”Don’t judge a book by it’s cover”.
