Make America Hate Again: Donald Trump is part of the globalist elite machine, who will do NOTHING to help the middle class, poor and struggling in America...

Via CNN:





“Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton's campaign Saturday night seized on a New York Times report about Donald Trump's 1995 tax records, in which the Times showed he declared a $916 million loss that could have allowed him to legally skip paying federal income taxes for years.
The revelations threatened to put the controversy over Trump's refusal to follow recent precedent and release his tax returns at the center of the presidential campaign less than 40 days before the election, after a week in which the Republican nominee has struggled to bounce back from a debate in which most analysts and scientifically conducted polls scored Clinton as the winner.
His campaign vehemently pushed back on the Clinton campaign's effort to turn the report into an "October surprise" moment, saying Trump has a "fiduciary responsibility" as a businessman to pay no more tax than legally required. It also charged that the report proved that the Times and the "establishment media" are merely an arm of the Clinton campaign.”

That’s cute. To paraphrase Mr. Trump’s campaign, “Donald uses tax loopholes to avoid paying taxes, because yeah, that's just what the ultra-rich do, and you should just accept that you're going to be further squeezed while "The Donald" goes and buys another $100 million penthouse”

The report goes on to add:






“Trump's decision not to release his tax returns is a complicated issue politically, and the controversy shows the complications of someone like Trump, with a vast business empire, running for president.
On the one hand, conservatives have long viewed the Internal Revenue Service with disdain and it has long been a plank of the Republican Party's orthodoxy that taxes should be lowered across the board. The GOP also sought to make political capital out of claims that the Obama administration used the IRS to target the tax-exempted status of conservative grassroots and Tea Party groups.
So it is not beyond the realm of possibility that Trump's core voters, who harbor deep suspicion of the federal government, would applaud his efforts to avoid some tax liability -- as long as he acted within the law.
But Trump's appeal in Rust Belt swing states has been aimed directly at voters who feel they have been left behind by the uneven economic recovery -- and who see Wall Street figures with vast means as able to use legal maneuvers to escape the kind of tax burden that ordinary middle-class voters must bear.
So far, Trump has been able to position himself as the scourge of high finance and the New York financial elite -- despite having moved in proximity to such circles for decades. Saturday's Times report is likely to make it more complicated for him to pull off that feat.
It may also undermine Trump's self image as a consummate dealmaker and businessman. He repeatedly argues that he has created a "great company" worth billions of dollars and implicitly argued that expertize equips him to manage the US economy and renegotiate what he has styled as global trade deals that disadvantage the United States. Anything that contradicts that image could be politically damaging.”





Folks, Trump is not a "Washington outsider" as he likes to portray himself. Donald Trump is part of the 1% globalist elite that OWN Washington. His policies will do NOTHING for the working class. His policies on the economy, trade, regulations, and especially taxes will do NOTHING to elevate the poor and the struggling in our country. His policies are designed to fill the pockets of the already rich. Fuck that!













Restoring the honor!

    1. I'm voting for what I believe is the lesser of two evils, I don't believe either of them are going to be good for the country, but Trump is signaling that he's a fascist, therefore, I'm voting for shitty candidate #2 in protest against fascism.

  3. The story of how the New York Times authenticated Donald Trump's 1995 tax returns...

    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/03/insider/the-time-i-found-donald-trumps-tax-records-in-my-mailbox.html?_r=0

    "We were skeptical as we examined the tax records, though much of the information looked accurate. They were signed by Mr. Trump’s wife at the time, Marla Maples, and by Mr. Trump, whose recognizable handwriting renders his signature in jagged, oversized letters. Other details matched up.

    But, of course, we needed a lot more before we could publish an article.

    We were initially thrown off by a quirk in the records noticed by Megan Twohey: On the line on which Mr. Trump had reported his huge loss — of $915,729,293 — the first two digits did not line up with the next seven. Could the document have been doctored, we wondered?

    We hired tax experts to guide us through the math. We researched the 1995 tax code. We reached out to anyone who might have viewed Mr. Trump’s records during that period.

    But the breakthrough came when David Barstow traveled to Florida and tracked down Jack Mitnick, the semiretired accountant who had prepared and signed Mr. Trump’s tax returns.

    Mr. Mitnick was initially reluctant to talk, but he eventually agreed to meet David in a bagel shop.

    In a conversation there, Mr. Mitnick not only said that the records appeared to be authentic, he also solved the mystery of the digits that did not line up. It turned out that the tax preparation software he had used did not allow him to enter a loss of nine figures. So, he recalled, he had to manually enter the first two digits, using an IBM Selectric typewriter.

    We did more reporting that broadened our picture of Mr. Trump’s finances at the time, and reached out to additional sources. By Saturday — eight days after I had first opened the envelope — we were ready to go to the Trump campaign with our findings. Mr. Trump, through his spokeswoman, did not challenge or confirm the tax records, but he threatened us with legal action if we were to publish them."

    Donald Trump is the tax cheat in Chief. Nothing to be proud of for sure.

    "The current incarnation of Rudy Giuliani lacks many qualities associated with him when he was mayor of New York City: moderation, tolerance, and an eagerness to cross party lines. But as he showed Sunday morning on “Meet the Press,” where he appeared in his role as a Donald Trump surrogate, he can’t be accused of lacking chutzpah, or what the Brits call a brass neck.

    “The reality is, he’s a genius,” Giuliani said when the show’s host, Chuck Todd, asked him about the New York Times’s revelation that Trump, back in 1995, reported more than nine hundred million dollars in losses on his tax returns, which might well have shielded him from federal income taxes for years. “He did something we admire in America: he came back.” Far from being regarded as a tax avoider, Giuliani insisted, Trump was to be compared to Steve Jobs and Winston Churchill, both of whom suffered setbacks only to return in triumph. “Great men have big failures and then they take those failures, and they turn them into great results,” he said."

    and

    "None of this is to say that Trump broke any laws. The scandal, instead, is what he was able to do lawfully thanks to the structure of the tax code, and his subsequent failure to be transparent about it. If a source hadn’t sent the 1995 tax documents to the Times, Trump would almost certainly have continued to refuse to release his tax returns, and stuck to the fiction that even if he did release them, they wouldn’t tell us much anyway.

    Even now, he might seek to brazen it out. But his campaign is also trying out the “genius” line, to see if it gets any traction. If it does—if Trump’s supporters react to the new revelations with admiration rather than outrage—Trump might well go ahead and release at least some of his tax returns. That is what some of his associates have been advising him to do for weeks.

    The problem with this strategy should be obvious. Far from demonstrating that Trump is a “genius” or a “highly-skilled businessman,” the 1995 returns confirm what longtime observers have known for years: earlier in his career, at least, Trump was a terrible businessman. He borrowed billions of dollars to build casinos and buy overpriced trophy properties, such as the Plaza Hotel and the Eastern Air Lines Shuttle. His businesses lost almost all of this money, and some of the biggest ones, including the Plaza, were forced to seek bankruptcy protection. Trump personally was only saved from the humiliation of being declared bust by the fact that his bankers believed they would get more of their money back by throwing him a lifeline."

  5. Donald Trump, oligarch.


    http://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/donald-trump-american-oligarch

    "This past summer, when Donald Trump dumped his campaign manager, Paul Manafort, in the midst of revelations about Manafort’s financial ties to Russian oligarchs, Anne Applebaum, a Pulitzer-Prize-winning columnist for the Washington Post, wrote that the real problem wasn’t that Trump is sympathetic to Russian oligarchs, it was that “he is a Russian oligarch.” Trump, Applebaum explained, is “an oligarch in the Russian style—a rich man who aspires to combine business with politics and has an entirely cynical and instrumental attitude toward both.”

    Now, with the Times reportingthat congressionally-crafted loopholes for real-estate magnates could have enabled Trump to legally evade all income taxes for eighteen years, while earning as much as $50 million a year, we have a perfect example of how oligarchic interests have made inroads in the United States. The question now is whether the American public favors this trend.

    One definition of an oligarch, according to the Northwestern University political scientist Jeffrey A. Winters, the author of “Oligarchy,” is an individual with enough money to employ the protection of what he calls the “wealth defense industry.” Oligarchs worldwide face threats of different kinds, but in the U.S., the greatest threat is from redistribution—which is achieved by the state imposing progressive income taxes. So the “wealth defense industry” in America—sophisticated accountants, consultants, lawyers, lobbyists, and think-tank apologists—is uniquely focussed on carving out tax loopholes for its rich clients. The key measure of an American oligarch’s success, Winters notes, is the difference between his official tax rate and his effective rate—the amount that actually comes out of his pocket on April 15th. By that yardstick, Trump achieved the oligarch’s ultimate ambition: for almost two decades, he had the ability to live like a sultan while paying nothing—less than a cleaning lady or a kid in his first job—to support the public good.

    In Trump’s eyes, as he put it in his first Presidential debate against Hillary Clinton, last week, “That makes me smart.”"
