Hypocrisy Reigns as New York Times Pays No Income Taxes Yet Attacks Trump's Taxes
The New York Times claimed on Sunday that the front page of Trumpâ€™s state income tax returns filed in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut in 1995 prove that the man came close to being a tax cheat:
Donald J. Trump declared a $916 million loss on his 1995 income tax returns, a tax deduction so substantial it could have allowed him to legally avoid paying any federal income taxes for up to 18 years.
The mainstream media trumpeted the storyline incessantly without mentioning simple truths buried in the Timesâ€™ report: The hit piece was based on just three pages of the voluminous tax returns Trump filed in that year; his taxable income in future years is unknown; tax experts consulted by the Times â€śsaid nothing in [those pages from 1995] suggested any wrongdoingâ€ť; that donations Trump might have made to charity in 1995 are unknown; that nothing provided by those three front pages â€śsuggest that Mr....
Jim, you had to go back 4 years to remind us of old NY Times news. How sad. The only thing it shows is that this yearâ€™s effort is just another pre-election rerun of nothing. How about you think about whether Trump has done anything illegal, and if so, why hasnâ€™t the IRS, who is no friend of his, come after him? But that requires reason, and youâ€™re big on attempting to trigger envy and emotion. It isnâ€™t working. It wonâ€™t work for you, and it wonâ€™t work for the NYTimes. Please try again.

On March 31, the court will hear oral arguments in the cases of Trump v. Mazars and Trump v. Deutsche Bank. The decision will be rendered sometime between then and the courtâ€™s summer break.

Jim Lincoln â€“â€“â€“ By any chance have you given millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation??? â€“â€“ IF NOT â€“â€“ DON'T FOOL YOURSELF â€“â€“ HELLary Clinton doesn't give "two hoots and a holler" about you or anyone like you â€“â€“â€“ she and her elitist backers just look at you and others as gullible little fools who are helping them move closer to their endgame â€¦ (the destruction of a Nation Founded Upon GOD GIVEN RIGHTS AND THE TRUE PRINCIPLED FREEDOMS FOUND THEREIN)
"ABSOLUTES" are a real hinderance to progressive radicals like Obama, HELLary and all the leftist cronies in their camp â€¦ that's why their wheels of change are always aimed at rolling over True Religion â€¦ that which is not compatible with their twisted destructive vision (to systematically dismantle America, our Sovereignty and our Constitution) must be stamped out
Doesn't it get tiresome being Hellary's surrogate Jim??
The truth be told it's not just Obama and Hillary Clinton â€“â€“ it's the majority of both Democrats and Republicans in Washington, DC who have succumbed to corruption on every level and have SOLD OUT AMERICA AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE â€“â€“ IN ALL HONESTY THEY ARE ALL GUILTY OF "HIGH TREASON" â€“â€“ DISGRACEFUL
hyper-dispensationalism is spiritually tied to the neocons. somtimes work against the interests of their own nation (which is their people, their neighbor) for a greater world order. it is a philosophy that does not respect national borders, because by its nature it acquires wealth through disruption of other nations.
they speak as victims, yet their voting base is huge and is felt in almost every church in America. no matter where I go, these are the ones that make political demands overseas.... and yet... sometimes their own country are the least knoweldgable could it be because their teachers (who often die as old men in their homes, very rich after decades of calling for an imminent rapture) have called their lives just a "parenthesis" and the outcome of their nation of no import to God? that they have been taught that politics do not matter except what happens in the land where Jesus set foot?
this sad group could ensure the outing of a commnst sweep by their voting block and support, some remain antagonistic to their brethren trying to hold off the slaughter of the innocent.
....because they have one demand, that their sons and daughters fight for a slice of land in the ME at any and all costs.
its interesting to me that bill calls supporters of the nation "rednecks" while he's being followed by an entourage of women who have seemingly legitimate claims to rape. meanwhile there's a gentleman who is African American that looks just like him who was left destitute during his presidential years named Danney Williams.
these people are despicable and will stop at nothing for power.
Danney Williams was well spoken and kind hearted, he spoke well for himself and was glad to have heard him out.
Many in the country are praying for his life since he dared to stare down the machine to claim that Bill is his father and Chelsea his sister.
Meanwhile it seems Trump knew Ryan would make a move to sabotage his campaign. what they want is a leftist/commnst/neocon leader and a controlled oppstion speaker of the house. no doubt about it, these rinos are for the world order and not the population.

So she's a blatant racist. Just more successful at hiding HER uncivilized mouth than Trump is. Funny Jim never says Clinton is unfit for office, based on the things she not only says, but actually does.
If we watch carefully, we will discern that the libdems and their RINO sidekicks have no argument, no policy, nothing the people want, and promises of delivering things they don't want. They are left with only one thing. Help Clinton win by bringing Trump down, in whatever way necessary. They have been exposed, are running scared, and are desperate.

I support some of the nativist issues that Trump brings up - - somebody else who is civilized should have done it and be running for President. Trump is unfit for the office.
Even Mussolini made the trains run on time, fixed up Pompeii, ran water and a road to Venice--oh and gave the Vatican nation state status. This didn't stop him from being a disastrous leader of Italy!

No, KK, not when compared to Trump USA Today Editorial Board wrote: [Trump is:]
He is erratic.
He is ill-equipped to be commander in chief.
He traffics in prejudice.
His business career is checkered.
He isnâ€™t leveling with the American people.
He speaks recklessly.
He has coarsened the national dialogue.
Heâ€™s a serial liar.
Although polls show that Clinton is considered less honest and trustworthy than Trump, itâ€™s not even a close contest. Trump is in a league of his own when it comes to the quality and quantity of his misstatements. When confronted with a falsehood,... Trumpâ€™s reaction is to use the Big Lie technique of repeating it so often that people begin to believe it....
Nor does this editorial represent unqualified support for Hillary Clinton ,
who has her own flaws (though hers are far less likely to threaten national security or lead to a constitutional crisis). The Editorial Board does not have a consensus for a Clinton endorsement....

If only you held Clinton to the same standards of truthfulness and openness with the American people, I might be tempted to trust you actually believe what you say. Anyway, since I must have missed it, where in the NY Times article in question did it say Trump did something illegal? If there was nothing, then all the NY Times anti-Trump chatter about it means exactly nothing, and is no more than gotcha emotionalism disguised as investigative reporting, for the purpose of lifting up Clinton by putting down Trump. And, for your benefit, posting links to yet other things are mere distractions from the issue at hand, i.e. the article in question.

It must not be silly, because apparently I got quite a few people to read the article didn't I?
Yes, it's legal to reveal tax records of of an infamous person, if it isn't I guess Trump will have to prove that in court.
Trump has never admitted anything, He just pay fines when he does something illegal! q.v., again, [URL=http://tinyurl.com/z9a7h5y]]]http://tinyurl.com/z9a7h5y (The Many Scandals of Donald Trump: A Cheat Sheet)[/URL] Read it, they don't mince many words.

Good to know you are consistent in never answering questions. But your above paragraph shows you think feelings determine correct action. Of course that is quite wrong for a Christian.

Trump represents truth, justice and the American way. And any so called Christian who will not vote for Trump to keep Clinton out of the White House is doing Satan's bidding and will be responsible for bringing the judgment of God upon the United States if Clinton gets in the White House.

Buckeyes, as far as anything that is said about Clinton is innuendo, many things pointed out about DT is public record, many times court records. I do try to supply some balance!

A few questions, Jim.
1.What makes this New York Times article a "Christian article"?
2.Is that a bit of sly to get people to read it?
3.Is it legal to reveal someone's tax records without a court order?
4.Do you care?
5.Has any anti-Trump rag said he did something illegal?
6.Why is doing something legal bad, but being an illegal good to the New York Times?
