Opposition Media Flop: No One Cared About
That Massive NYT Story On Trump´s Taxes
...No One

Townhall, by Matt Vespa

Original Article

Posted By:ladydawgfan, 10/11/2018 3:30:13 PM

Gee—where did that story go? I’m taking about The New York Times story about President Trump’s tax schemes that supposedly was…very, very bad. Oh, that’s right; no one cared. It’s the bombshell that never was, partially because tax law is boring. Politico covered why this story went nowhere in the national news media, even after they ran it twice last week. The publication added that there is nothing juicy, and that tax law is so complex that we often dole out filing our taxes to accountants. There are no Russian hookers, collusion nonsense, or anything about the president’s alleged mistresses.

Dontcha just HATE it when that happens??

You can stare at it all day and it is where’sWaldo. That’s the tax code for you. Not Trump’s fault and he has a plan to fix.

I´m sure that NY will do whatever they can to damage President Trump. But, it will be to no avail. You have to break the law and I assure you, that´s why the Trumps have an army of attorneys looking out for those things.

#2, Fred Trump is long dead and the statute of limitations has long run. This was tax avoidance by Trump´s father, not Trump. Are they going to reopen Fred Trump´s estate and make the Trump children give back the property they inherited nearly 20 years after the fact? I don´t think so.

What I find disgusting is that a major newspaper would devote a year and how many reporters to destroy an American citizen because the editors/publishers oppose the citizen´s perfectly mainstream political philosophy. Why not devote some time to investigating George Soros´s finances? After all, Soros has been tossed out of several countries for his financial misdoings. Or investigate the Clinton Foundation about which there have been many questions raised. But no..The NYT just loves and supports Soros and the Clinton Foundation. Meanwhile, despising Donald J. Trump.

Jay Rockefeller (whose real name was John D. Rockefeller IV) was a recipient of a trust fund set up by His great grandfather.
Just like Old Joe Kennedy, Rockefeller set up intergenerational trusts, which subdues the tax man.
President Trump´s father did nothing illegal - he just wanted his children to be treated favorably by the IRS.
The NYT story was a zero.

Everyone knows someone who has been audited by the IRS. Most of those people had not intentionally done anything wrong but were exposed to the mental torture and anguish of an unaccountable IRS agent potentially ruining their life over an obscure corner of the tax law.

If you have lived as an expatriate American for any length of time, for example, you are almost automatically considered to be a tax cheat.

So anything involving taxes looks like a frame up to most people

Lets face it, even his biggest fans know that Donald Trump had not exactly been a boy scout or saint. He was a womanizing hard-core businessman.

And if he had been running for POPE, he never would have gotten my vote (but neither would have Francis for that matter, but that´s another thread).

But he wasn´t running for Pope. He was running for president, and he was just the PERFECT man for the job at the right time!!!!!!

You would think that the MSM and the LIE-berals of this country would learn that you can´t throw mud on Donald Trump and expect it to stick or expect him to cower in fear. He is a success!!!! And all the things he has done in his life, good and bad, successes and failures, have made him into the GREAT president that we have now!!!!!!

God bless President Trump!!!!! MAGA!!!!!!!!

Former Congressman John Dingell, Jr., a partisan Democrat whose immediate family has controlled the same seat in the House of Representatives for 86 years, has some suggestions for fixing Congress. We should abolish the Senate and the Electoral College because they´re undemocratic, "despite the constitutional hurdles of doing so." In 2015, Dingell retired from the U.S. House seat he´s held since 1955, the seat he inherited from his father, John Dingell, Sr., who first won it in 1932. The seat has passed to John Jr.´s much-younger wife, Rep. Debbie Dingell, who was just re-elected in November.

Around Christmastime, everyone´s rushing here and there, agitated, sometimes even a bit angry, as they juggle a hundred things ahead of the holiday. And that´s what makes what happened in Nashville on Saturday truly remarkable. Hundreds of people were packed into the airport awaiting their flights when an airline attendant announced over a loudspeaker that children of fallen service members were boarding their flight. The kids were being flown to Disneyworld on an all-expenses trip. Everyone in the airport stopped as "The Star Spangled Banner" was performed, with soldiers saluting the children.

Whatever you might think of the Bush dynasty’s legacy, no one can ever accuse the family of not showing class and decency. And their sterling example of this, while saying goodbye to their beloved patriarch, has also served as an important reminder of just how awful the McCain family is. Remember when Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) died? How could you forget? The funeral lasted longer than the first season of Cop Rock — something like nine episodes. McCain died on a Saturday, and his funeral services did not come to an end until the

When Wisconsin Republicans pushed through a sweeping set of bills Wednesday to limit the power of the state’s newly elected Democrats, it was another hardball maneuver by a man who has played a key role in driving the state sharply to the right. In the days after the Republican governor’s stunning loss last month — the end of eight years of one-party control of the state’s government — Robin Vos, the Republican speaker of the Assembly, was defiant. “We are going to stand like bedrock to guarantee that Wisconsin does not go back,” Mr. Vos told local reporters after the midterms.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) promised over the weekend to pass the Dream Act in the new Congress, which would provide amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. Pelosi, who will likely become the next speaker of the House in January, said in a statement on Saturday that she will work to pass the Dream Act with her new House Democrat majority. “America draws strength from our long, proud heritage as a nation of immigrants. In the Majority, Democrats will work to reverse the Republicans’ destructive anti-immigrant agenda,” Pelosi contended.

An organizer of the migrant caravan gathering near the U.S. southern border in Tijuana, Mexico, urged President Trump to let his band of Central American migrants into the country because they “are not bad.” “Let these people in. Let them try. Let them try,” Luis Cruz, an organizer behind the migrant advocacy group Pueblos Sin Fronteras, told Fox News. “I mean, most of these people are not bad.” But Cruz also admitted that he does not know if there are criminals or gang members embedded in the caravan bound for the U.S.-Mexico border.

Franklin Graham reiterated his deep support for President Donald Trump Sunday. Speaking to “Axios on HBO,” the son of the late Billy Graham and the man who often speaks for America’s politically influential Evangelical community says it’s not too complicated to explain why he often defends Trump against naysayers: “He defends the faith.” “Now, people say, ‘Well, Frank, but how can you defend him when he’s lived such a sordid life?´” Graham told the news outlet, apparently citing oft-repeated stories of Trump’s sexual peccadilloes and alleged misconduct against some women. Trump has denied the accounts.

May I ask a simple question: What is the legal definition of “sex”? And no, I’m not asking about the verb, but about what it means to be a man or a woman, a boy or a girl. Until very recently, to ask the question was to answer it. Living things reproduce after their own kind, after all, and a brief primer on the birds and the bees would have cleared up any confusion. That was certainly the understanding of the U.S. legislators who passed Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964,

Two groups of migrants from Central America marched to the American consulate in Tijuana, Mexico, yesterday, with a list of demands to the Trump administration. One of them asked the American president to either let them in the country or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said. The first group, including about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11am on Tuesday. Alfonso Guerreo Ulloa, an organizer from Honduras, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the $50,000 figure is not a very big sum. ´It may seem like a lot of money to you,´ he said.

President Donald Trump, future House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer erupted in an on-camera fight in the Oval Office over border wall funding on Tuesday. The president argued that funding the wall was a “national emergency” and proposed $5 billion in funding. Schumer refused, insisting that he would only provide just $1.6 billion in border security funds. In response, Trump said he would shut down the government and take responsibility for it if they failed to include additional wall funding.
