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.

The New York Times’ latest scheme left Trump shaking with rage

Published

on

By

The New York Times is the flagship outlet of the Fake News Media.

Their propaganda pieces masquerading as journalism set the agenda and talking points for the Democrat Party.

But now The New York Times‘ latest scheme left Trump shaking with rage.

New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet recently held a town hall meeting for Times employees.

Baquet addressed his staff after the uproar on Twitter over a headline after President Trump’s speech on mass shootings that liberals on social media raged was too favorable to Trump.

The Times caved and changed the headline to reflect an anti-Trump sentiment more suitable for their left-wing readers.

During his remarks, Baquet made a shocking admission: The Times went all-in on the Russia Collusion Hoax because the paper was compelled to frame Trump’s Presidency in the most negative light possible.

Baquet added that The Times was now changing the focus of their coverage to calling Donald Trump a racist because that is what Baquet believes will damage Trump the most.

Baquet stated:

OK. I mean, let me go back a little bit for one second to just repeat what I said in my in my short preamble about coverage. Chapter 1 of the story of Donald Trump, not only for our newsroom but, frankly, for our readers, was: Did Donald Trump have untoward relationships with the Russians, and was there obstruction of justice? That was a really hard story, by the way, let’s not forget that. We set ourselves up to cover that story. I’m going to say it. We won two Pulitzer Prizes covering that story. And I think we covered that story better than anybody else.

The day Bob Mueller walked off that witness stand, two things happened. Our readers who want Donald Trump to go away suddenly thought, “Holy shit, Bob Mueller is not going to do it.” And Donald Trump got a little emboldened politically, I think. Because, you know, for obvious reasons. And I think that the story changed. A lot of the stuff we’re talking about started to emerge like six or seven weeks ago. We’re a little tiny bit flat-footed. I mean, that’s what happens when a story looks a certain way for two years. Right?

Americans know The Times is hopelessly biased against conservatives.

But what they could not believe was Baquet admitting to shaping his coverage around a conspiracy theory designed to overthrow the duly elected President of the United States.

Tucker Carlson pointed out one fact about mass shootings that infuriated the Democrat Party

Published

Tucker Carlson is an expert at destroying the Left.

He isn’t afraid to point out facts the mainstream media ignore.

And Tucker Carlson just pointed out one fact about mass shootings that infuriated the Democrat Party.

To the Democrat Party, and the mainstream media, there is one reason for mass shootings.

And that reason is that citizens in the United States have the right to keep and bear arms.

So their one and only solution is to strip that right away.

But as Tucker Carlson points out, the Second Amendment isn’t actually the problem.

During his vacation, he posted a surprise article on The Daily Caller, which he founded, where he explained the core reason behind mass shootings.

The most important fact that gets left out by the mainstream media and their Democrat pals is that suicide rates for young Americans are higher than they have ever been, along with drug-related deaths.

This increase is fueled by Left-wing policies that hurt economic opportunity and are destroying the family and religious institutions, therefore leaving many young Americans with the notion they have nowhere to go but self-harm.

And while those millions of cases of young people destroying themselves this way are ignored, the media instead fixates on the very small amount that cause mass shootings.

As written by Tucker Carlson at The Daily Caller:

Suicide rates for young Americans are the highest ever measured. So are drug-related deaths. Fifteen percent of millennials still live with their parents. Fifty years ago, more than 80% of American adults ages 25 to 34 were already married and living with a spouse. Today, less than half of adults in that age range are married. A huge portion of American young people aren’t in any kind of relationship at all. It’s no wonder millions of young people feel helpless, miserable and alone. They lack friends or parents or religious organizations to give their lives purpose and moral coherence. They live in a suffocating culture they feel no control over: Local identity and local institutions are the weakest they’ve ever been in this country.

Most people think our democracy is fake. The policies they live under, the jobs they hold and even their personal opinions are controlled by tech monopolists, media scolds and Washington bureaucrats. America is supposed to be a free country, but millions of young people look around and feel like they’re trapped in a stagnant dystopia. In such an environment, a few people will lash out in violence. Millions of others will simply fade away, from suicide or overdose or diabetes. This is the real crisis, the one that produced those horrifying scenes on TV over the weekend. Washington is happy to pretend it isn’t happening. But it is. You can’t ignore it forever.

Carlson truly hits the nail on the head in a way that only he can.

Democrats and the Fake News Media want to ignore all these points, as they are too difficult to swallow.

They would much rather simply say “guns are bad,” or “angry white men are bad” than get to the core of the problem.

Do you think Tucker Carlson is correct?

All hell broke loose at CNN when this shocking video went public

Published

By

It’s been bad stretch of news for CNN.

Sex scandals, lawsuits, bad ratings, and anchors behaving like animals out in public rocked the fake news network back on its heels.

And now all hell broke loose at CNN when this shocking video went public.

One of the body blows fake news CNN absorbed this past week was a viral video of anchor Chris Cuomo losing his mind and threatening to kill a man by throwing him down a flight of stairs after the man called Cuomo “Fredo.”

Fake news CNN stood behind Cuomo and falsely claimed Cuomo was the victim of a racial slur.

But all was not well behind the scenes.

Word surfaced that CNN staffers were embarrassed by Cuomo’s behavior.

The New York Post reports:

Insiders say that — while CNN brass stood by Chris Cuomo after he was caught on camera threatening a man who called him “Fredo” — the newsroom rank and file was “embarrassed” by the blowup.

Cuomo, who hosts the 9 p.m. “Cuomo Prime Time,” told the guy in the Shelter Island confrontation that the “Godfather” reference was a racial slur “like the ‘N-word’” for Italian Americans, called him “a punk-ass bitch” and told him, “I’ll f–king ruin your s – t. I’ll f–king throw you down these stairs.”

One insider said they personally thought the run-in was “great” and that Cuomo would get a pass from higher-ups because “he’s BFFs with [CNN president Jeff] Zucker.” Another said the newsroom chatter was that “everyone thinks it’s fine to stand up to trolls, but it escalated way past where it needed to.” While they said Cuomo generally has a good reputation with the staff, “It was embarrassing.” They added, “It was an unforced error, and he gave the right — and the president — ammunition to use against him and CNN.”
It takes a lot to embarrass people that work at CNN.

Network anchors routinely spread fake news and conspiracy theories on the air as part of a Democrat Party effort to get rid of Donald Trump.

They don’t much care about professional integrity at fake news CNN.

The behind the scenes disgust at CNN shows just how far over the line Cuomo’s rant really was.
