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.

We will keep you up-to-date on any new developments in this ongoing story.

    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.

    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

    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…

    Seems like the NYT got their reporters from the National Enquirer or The Star tabloid rejects. They USE to be a top-notch investigative reporting but now they only are not fit for the bottom of a bird cage. It would be cruel and unusual punishment for the poor birds

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

CNN’s Jake Tapper flat-out refused to correct AOC when she was caught in this outrageous lie

Published

on

Members of Congress used to be known for only lying to their constituents back home.

And the media was once known as “the arbiter of truth” and an institution of trust and respect.

But that has all changed and now CNN’s Jake Tapper flat-out refused to correct AOC when she was caught in this outrageous lie.

CNN’s Jake Tapper has gone from being considered by some as a respected, impartial journalist to just another left-wing hack who can lie and promote the Left’s with the best of them.

Tapper recently admitted that he allowed Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to blatantly lie about President Trump during a recent interview.

AOC said during the interview, “The beds and the capacity that we need in this country. And we’re hearing it every step of the way from this administration. First, we were hearing that it’s a hoax, then we were hearing that everything was fine.”

This all stemmed from earlier false press reports claiming the President called coronavirus a hoax. The claims were quickly disproven and even corrected by most news outlets.

But clearly not by CNN.

Tapper later even admitted he knew it was a lie from AOC, but chose not to say anything.

“I thought about it, because the president did not call the virus a hoax.” Tapper said.

Tapper went further in trying to deflect from the Congresswoman’s lie by simply accusing the president of being a liar.

“I guess that’s the problem with a politician who lies so often. While I agree that Democrats are mischaracterizing what he said, what he did say was also false so it’s tough to justify taking the time for a fact check when it’s not taking a stand defining the truth,” Jake added.

So, in other words, because Tapper doesn’t like the president and personally believes Donald Trump lies often, he decided not to correct a blatant lie on his show.

This disregard for the truth is so widespread by the media now, Tapper’s decision didn’t receive much coverage.

There was a time not so long ago when ploys like this would have cost a reporter his job.

But we have moved far past that time in history.

The Trump era may go down in history as the time that journalism died its last death.

The New York Times is using the current crisis to attack Christians for this outrageous reason

Published

on

Most Americans are coming together to battle both the Chinese coronavirus and the economic fallout from forced business closings.

But the media has decided this crisis is a great time to attack the very country that first protected their freedom of the press.

And now The New York Times is using the current crisis to attack Christians for this outrageous reason.

The liberal mainstream media has been out of control for decades.

They have gone from reporting the news and providing vital information to being nothing more than a public relations company for the far Left.

Now the liberal mainstream media’s blatant disregard for truth, accuracy, and basic decency has reached new lows in the last four or five years.

It’s no wonder journalists have become among the least trusted segments of American society, joining lawyers, politicians, and infomercial spokesmen.

From CBS using fake video footage to promote an anti-Trump story on the coronavirus, to the Washington Post gleefully predicting Trump supporters would suffer the highest number of deaths from the virus, the media has reached new lows.

Now The New York Times has taken it even lower with a shocking claim that Christians are to blame for the Chinese coronavirus.

Last week, The Times published an op-ed placing the blame on the so-called “religious right” for President Trump’s supposedly delayed response to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.

In the editorial, self-described “journalist” and author Katherine Stewart attempted to argue that the President’s “anti-science” evangelical voter base is influencing him too heavily, causing him to ignore scientists on issues like vaccines and, of course, climate change.

The op-ed was originally released with the title “The Road to Coronavirus Hell Was Paved by Evangelicals” but after massive backlash the liberal rag toned down the title to “The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science Is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response.”

Of course, both titles are vile and show the author’s (and the newspaper’s) violent bias against Christians.

Not to mention the author completely ignoring the fact that it is the Left’s anti-science views on life that have caused the slaughter of millions of children over the past few decades.

And it is the liberal anti-science views on gender that have led to the destruction of women’s sports and left thousands of scared, confused children facing mutilating surgeries.

What is most interesting about Stewart’s anti-Christian hit piece is that she focuses most of her vitriol on Christians who oppose the “Green New Deal” and other socialist attempts to take control by promoting fears of climate change.

Once again, the author ignores the fact that the same people claiming the earth will end in ten years have made those claims before.

In fact, some of these “scientists” have been predicting the end of the world since the 1970s.

And, the author conveniently leaves out the fact that as Donald Trump was first warning of the Chinese coronavirus in January, many “scientists” were claiming it couldn’t even be spread by human contact.

And when Trump placed a ban on travel from China to try and stop the spread, it was “scientists” who called him a racist and claimed a travel ban wasn’t needed.

The New York Times admitted one coronavirus error that had Trump grinning from ear to ear

Published

During the coronavirus outbreak the Fake News Media is not trying to inform the American people.

Instead, so-called “reporters” are seizing on the pandemic to launch another front in their war to destroy Donald Trump.

But now The New York Times admitted one coronavirus error that had Trump grinning from ear to ear.

During a March White House press briefing the President expressed his hope that the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine would prove to be a game-changer as it showed promise in limited use in treating coronavirus patients.

While the evidence was anecdotal and more tests were clearly required, the President was offering the American people a ray of hope as the outbreak spread.

The New York Times – instead of reporting facts – attacked the President for falsely touting “unproven drugs.”

“At a long-winded White House briefing on Friday, President Trump enthusiastically and repeatedly promoted the promise of two long-used malaria drugs that are still unproven against the coronavirus, but being tested in clinical trials,” The Times wrote on March 20.

By April 1, The Times was singing a different tune reporting that “The malaria drug hydroxychloroquine helped to speed the recovery of a small number of patients who were mildly ill from the coronavirus, doctors in China reported this week.”

The Times also noted that the drug helped those with mild cases avoid a severe infection that could result in an ICU stay or having to go on a ventilator.

“Cough, fever and pneumonia went away faster, and the disease seemed less likely to turn severe in people who received hydroxychloroquine than in a comparison group not given the drug. The authors of the report said that the medication was promising, but that more research was needed to clarify how it might work in treating coronavirus disease and to determine the best way to use it,” The Times added.

While the study was limited there are extensive tests going on in New York with drugs and many Americans are hoping that there is more good news to be found.
