The New York Times’ smoking gun to take down Trump just backfired in this major way

Published

on

The New York Times and other fake news outlets have been trying to destroy Donald Trump since the day he won the Republican nomination for President.

And on Tuesday they thought they stumbled upon the smoking gun that would take him down once and for all.

But all hell broke loose when The Times’ story backfired in this major way.

The New York Times’ latest supposed “bombshell” was publishing the results of 10 years worth of IRS transcripts of Trump’s tax returns.

Reporters at The Times thought that by publishing a story showing Trump lost over one billion dollars over that period it would puncture his image as a great deal maker and drive down his support from his political base.

The New York Times reports:

The data — printouts from Mr. Trump’s official Internal Revenue Service tax transcripts, with the figures from his federal tax form, the 1040, for the years 1985 to 1994 — represents the fullest and most detailed look to date at the president’s taxes, information he has kept from public view. Though the information does not cover the tax years at the center of an escalating battle between the Trump administration and Congress, it traces the most tumultuous chapter in a long business career — an era of fevered acquisition and spectacular collapse.

The numbers show that in 1985, Mr. Trump reported losses of $46.1 million from his core businesses — largely casinos, hotels and retail space in apartment buildings. They continued to lose money every year, totaling $1.17 billion in losses for the decade.

In fact, year after year, Mr. Trump appears to have lost more money than nearly any other individual American taxpayer, The Times found when it compared his results with detailed information the I.R.S. compiles on an annual sampling of high-income earners. His core business losses in 1990 and 1991 — more than $250 million each year — were more than double those of the nearest taxpayers in the I.R.S. information for those years.

But The Times’ story falls apart on two fronts:

First, there is no news value to this story.

Trump already wrote in his 1997 book, “The Art of the Comeback,” that in 1990 he was flat broke and was on the verge of total ruin because of a vicious downturn in the real estate market.

Donald Trump even filed very publicly for bankruptcy filing in the early 1990s.

So this story broke no new ground and covered “news” that was 30 to 40 years old.

Second, the leak was criminal.

The Times’ source may have had access to the records, but they cannot disclose them without Trump’s permission.

So the so-called “journalists” in New York and Washington may be facing charges all for a story that broke no new ground and didn’t even challenge any of Trump’s assertions.

But most of America met it with a yawn and shrug.

      Talk about being desperate and grabbing for straws, even old well known straws. Next they will be saying MY GOD HE ATTEMPTED TO BUILD A HOTEL IN RUSSIA. Like, who cares, that was what he did before even running for the presidency. That was his business and know what he decided NOT to because it wouldn’t have worked out either because the financials or constraints weren’t right. Watch the dems continue to harass and bully everyone conected to the President just to keep the Republican Party on the defense so they wont have the time to delve into all the criminal activity that the dems and rhinos committed. Mueller included as he knew from the start that the “investigation” into a non-crime was illegal and also because he was involved in the Clinton/Obama’s criminal activity. From Clapper, Brennan etc they all will fall eventually and when one gets indicted watch them turn on each other. The slaughter will be amazing to watch

    The New York Times needs to hang it up! They are too stupid to know what they are printing, and their readers are too stupid to know the difference. It is time for the Times to hang it up, and admit that they are writing fiction stories.

      No one in the press or in Congress would have ANY idea about how to interpret Trump’s tax returns. I’m pretty sure that the IRS has probably been pretty hard on Trump for years. Nadler, Schiff and Swalwell are clueless…

      Payback for the dems idiocy, DO NOT GIVE THEM A VOTE, NOT ONE not even for the local political offices, oust every last one of them. Better would be to have them all charged with some criminal activity so they could not collect their retirment (full salary) for the rest of their worthless lives, nor any other benefits that they voted for themselves.

      You said it !
      behavior by the Democrats should be publicly sanctioned and should require disbanding of the party just like the whigs.
      They are anti-American and worse petition for the destruction of the American way of life for the sake of personal power. They should be investigated and prosecuted where appropriate.

    Those that own the New York Times should be investigated for their 1980s and 1990s tax returns and how many right offs they took advantage of when the law permitted want to be able to do that. This time they pushed it too far and I actually broke the law in there witchhunt against President Trump. Hopefully they will be prosecuted to the full list extent of the law as they should be

    Although they probably won’t do it the white house attorneys should prosecute the Times for that release. Though it amounted to nothing new the Times dressed it up politically to portray the president as incompetent and it really is borderline slander. THis 1st amendment thing has gone out of control. The fake media can get away with saying most anything. But if you of I call them what they are we don’t get the 1st amendment right.

    Don’t care how much of HIS own money he lost. I only care about how he reduced taxes to save ME from paying for more government wasteful spending. We got more $$$ back in our taxes – that works for us. Why don’t they review how much of OUR money Obama gave to ‘green’ initiatives like Solyndra that went bankrupt with OUR money.

    What do you want from a President? Do you want someone who has been through the Business World and has lived through the ups and downs and has survived the turmoil to become successful? Or, do you want a long time government hack (Democrat, for those who might struggle with hack) who only understands how to take money from taxpayers, and to be this year’s version of “Robin Hood”? Cheers!

    This is more proof that Trump is an excellent businessman who weathered the storm and came roaring back stronger than ever. This is just what the US needs in a Prez.

    Whomever released this information to the news needs to be prosecuted and this person(s) along with the New York Times I hope gets sued for millions of $$

    This blatant attack and disregard for law and decorum needs to stopped.

Megyn Kelly just got hit with this big surprise about a return to Fox News

Published

Megyn Kelly made her big return to Fox News.

Kelly sat for a lengthy interview with Tucker Carlson.

And Megyn Kelly got hit with a big surprise about a return to Fox News.

Megyn Kelly’s comeback on Fox News was a smashing success.

Tucker Carlson’s interview with Kelly drew a whopping four million viewers making Carlson the highest rated show on cable news.

Mediaite reports:

Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s exclusive interview with Megyn Kelly ended up being a massive ratings draw for the network, grabbing a stunning 4.06 million total viewers.

Carlson — who featured Kelly across multiple segments in her first appearance on cable news since she left NBC — also netted 689,000 viewers in the advertiser coveted 25-54 demographic, beating out his closest competitor – Sean Hannity – in both categories for Wednesday night.

Kelly’s multi-segment interview made news on several fronts.

The former Fox News anchor said there should be an independent investigation into allegations the network covered up female staffers’ complaints that former “Today Show” host, Matt Lauer, sexually assaulted them.

Kelly also discussed how she sees the media turning into open political activists, instead of journalists during the Trump era, putting to lie claims by the Fake News Media that journalists don’t take sides.

If this interview was an audition for a comeback at Fox News, Kelly likely passed with flying colors.

The controversial Kelly proved she was a ratings draw and the Fox News Channel viewers were still interested in what she had to say.

While there are no current openings at Fox in primetime, the channel has shown in the past they will make changes to strengthen their lineup.

CNN’s president will cry himself to sleep after Tucker Carlson destroyed his life with one fact

Published

Tucker Carlson is one of the only honest voices on television today.

That’s why he terrifies fake news networks like CNN so much.

And CNN’s president will cry himself to sleep after Tucker Carlson destroyed his life with one fact.

CNN is freaking out after undercover videos from a company insider were released by Project Veritas.

The recordings prove that CNN’s President Jeff Zucker hates President Trump and exerts his influence on the network to harm him.

Carlson played one of the recordings on his show which features a high-level CNN employee stating that Zucker often single-handedly calls the shots at the network, shutting down decisions from his underlings if he disagrees.

The Fox News host explains that this proves CNN isn’t actually a journalism outfit, but instead “state media.”

From Tucker Carlson Tonight:

Even his own employees can’t take that seriously. Listen to one of them:

Nick Neville, CNN media coordinator: Like, there’s a lot of people who were out of here trying tolike just do what they think like is the best of journalistic integrity. And then you get on the 9:00 a.m. call and big boss, Jeff Zucker, [bleep] tells you what to do. And it’s like you have to like … to a certain extent, you have to follow his verdict.

Oh, so we’re laughing because how can you not laugh? It’s just – – it’s out there. It’s like there’s nothing hidden at this point. But it’s also poignant.

Here, you have a kid who works there, who thinks it is journalism, and he looks around and he sees people — because there are good people at CNN. We know it. Anyone who has worked there knows there are good people who work there.

And there are a bunch of them who are trying to commit journalism. But the big boss Jeff Zucker won’t allow it. Integrity be damned. Just do what Jeff Zucker says, whether it’s true or not.

Well, that’s not journalism, of course; it’s the definition of state media. Relentless cheerleading; relentless, never-ending shilling for the ruling class.

These Project Veritas videos just prove exactly what Americans already knew.

For months, CNN has been rapidly losing viewers due to their anti-Trump bias.

These videos are definitive proof of that bias and could end up being the death of CNN.

Do you think CNN should shut down for good?

Rush Limbaugh put a smile on Trump’s face by uncovering this major media secret

Published

By

Much of Rush Limbaugh’s job involves him revealing the stories the rest of the media refuses to cover.

That has made him one of President Donald Trump’s top allies.

And Limbaugh just put a big smile on Trump’s face by uncovering this major media secret.

If there’s one thing the media doesn’t want to talk about, it’s the big wins President Trump continues to bring in.

Limbaugh exposed this by talking about the recent special election for Governor in Louisiana.

Just before that election Trump held a rally in the state.

As a result, they had record turnout for the special election, where Republicans outperformed all expectations.

Limbaugh explains that Democrats are horrified by this fact considering that this was a special election where turnout is usually very light.

But because of Trump, voters hit the polls in droves.

Transcript from Rush Limbaugh’s radio show:

RUSH: Last week, Trump went into Louisiana and did a rally. Before that, he did a rally in Minneapolis. Now, something happened in Louisiana after the Trump rally that I will wager you haven’t heard anything about. Does anybody remember why Trump even went to Louisiana? (interruption) You do? Good for you! Good. Mr. Snerdley is on the case. There was a governor’s race. He went down there to tout an election. There was an election, in fact, the next day. Have you heard any stories about what happened in that election?

They had record turnout in a special election. Quote from the story: “The Hill, which also had a look, but ran an [bland] headline that didn’t match the content of its three-alarm fire for Democrats, noted that this Democrat loss came in a special election, and those normally don’t draw large numbers of voters, but this one did,” and nobody is drawing the connection that Trump was there the day before. Here’s the headline: “Brutal Wipeout for Democrats in Louisiana, and the Press [Is] Trying to Keep it Quiet — The last of the Louisiana state election numbers are in, and it’s not pretty for the Democrats.

Democrats and their pals in the press are trying to claim that Republican voters are burnt out while Democrats are fired up.

So in 2020, they are hoping that will result in a massive loss for Trump.

This election proves that is extremely unlikely.

Do you think Trump will win in 2020?
