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!!!!!!!!

Ronald DeRisi, 74, was arrested early Friday morning for threats against two of the United States Senators who supported Kavanaugh’s nomination. In a September 27th voicemail, DeRisi claimed he had a “present” for one of the senators: “It’s a 9 millimeter. Side of your f***ing skull, you s***bag m****rf***er.” He concluded the message with “Yeah, Kavanaugh – I don’t think so.” Another recorded call to the same Senator was significantly more verbose: We’re tired of this guy sucking taxpayers’ money!

Former President Jimmy Carter jumped into the political fray recently over newly confirmed Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, saying he was “unfit” to be on the Supreme Court. While speaking to a class at Emory College Wednesday Mr. Carter said Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation was a “very serious mistake,” The Emory Wheel reported. He also criticized the Senate for being “subservient” to President Trump. Justice Kavanaugh’s nomination proceedings were derailed after allegations of sexual assault were made by California professor Christine Blasey Ford. The FBI was instructed to conduct an investigation into the

Mega Billion? The jackpot for Friday´s

For one week at least, perhaps they should change the name to Mega Billions. Or at least Mega Billion. That´s because hours before the drawing, lottery officials raised the jackpot for Friday´s Mega Millions jackpot to that milestone plateau. That makes it the second-largest jackpot in U.S. history, trailing only the $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot on Jan. 13, 2016. Three tickets, purchased in Florida, California and Tennessee, split that jackpot. The jackpot has been steadily growing since July, when a group of officers in California won $543 million.



Illegal Caravans Encouraged

Just in time for the midterms, another "spontaneous" migration from Central America began with a bevy of allegedly oppressed and downtrodden Hondurans leading the way. Pressured by a threat from President Trump to cut aid to Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador if the caravan is not stopped, some moves by these governments have been made. Yet evidence exists that these migrations are not spontaneous, with both of the governments in question encouraging them as a political and economic safety valve and a source of foreign currency, financed in part by foreign leftists with connections to George Soros.

Representative Beto O’Rourke (D., Texas), who is challenging incumbent Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, said he would vote to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump during a Thursday CNN town hall. Asked whether he had changed his mind with respect to his previous support for impeachment, O’Rourke replied. “I haven’t.” “There may be an open question as to whether the president, then the candidate, sought to collude with the Russian government in 2016,” the El Paso congressman said, referring to special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible

More civility: Death threats, bullying against
owner of restaurant rented by Marsha
Blackburn´s campaign

Bullying, on camera and in public, is the best way to humanize a politician. It doesn’t matter how arrogant or out of touch they have been during their time in office. The moment a mob shows up at a restaurant to drive them out, most look past the politics and empathize with the person who is having their dinner ruined. Normal people react this way, because normal people don’t like bullies. The far left, however, remains unclear on the concept. Consider what just happened to Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who is running for Senate in Tennessee.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said American voters will simply have to deal with the “collateral damage” that comes their way if Democrats craft economic policies in the years ahead. The California Democrat recently sat down with New York Times columnist Paul Krugman in the Big Apple to discuss public policy. The event, hosted by the Jewish organization 92nd Street Y, included a portion on climate change that sparked the lawmaker’s pronouncement. “We owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country,

Hillary Clinton, never one for the conservatives, has now managed to isolate — nay, tick off — even the hardest core of her supporters. What’s come from her fans in the media in the last few hours could very well signal the end of Clinton’s long-standing, long-running reign in political courts. “For women,” CNN blasted in one headline, “Clinton is a bigger disappointment than Trump.” Ouch. That’s pretty blunt for a cable outlet known colloquially as Clinton News Network. “Hillary Clinton doesn’t get it,” wrote Holly Thomas for CNN. “Since the explosion of #MeToo in October 2017, many of us have become jaded to the stock

President Trump on Tuesday said he warned Honduras to stop a caravan of more than 1,000 migrants headed for the United States or else lose American aid. “The United States has strongly informed the President of Honduras that if the large Caravan of people heading to the U.S. is not stopped and brought back to Honduras, no more money or aid will be given to Honduras, effective immediately!” Mr. Trumptweeted. The caravan of at least 1,600 crossed Monday into Guatemala, chanting “yes we can” as they defied the Guatemalan governments orders to stop.

The group, which has swelled in size in recent days, set out before dawn on the only road out of the small Mexican border town of Ciudad Hidalgo. It arrived in the afternoon in the city of Tapachula, more than 20 miles away. The migrants, nearly all from the poor and violent nation of Honduras, posed a growing political and humanitarian calamity for Mexico,

This is beyond odd, but here goes. I rise to defend Hillary Clinton. She is under attack and this time, the long knives are wielded by members of her own clan. Suddenly, after two years of indulging Clinton’s blame games and pity parties, lefty pundits say she’s talking too much, she’s stuck in the past, she had her chance and she blew it. Vanity Fair, declaring that she “still hasn’t learned the lessons of #MeToo,” is furious that Clinton said her husband’s Oval Office dalliance with Monica Lewinsky was not an abuse of power

In a recent statement, the animal advocate organization explains that dairy milk has been the drink of choice for supremacists because "the dairy industry inflicts extreme violence on other living beings."

The economy is booming and America’s international position is strong. In foreign affairs, the U.S. has remembered in the nick of time what Machiavelli advised princes five centuries ago: Don’t seek to be loved, seek to be feared. The contrast with the Obama years must be painful for any honest leftist.
