Kevin Bloody Wilson sums up the first Trump Biden Debate

https://youtu.be/cJ_46Woadeg (profanity warning)

What a circus. A screaming match. Like two bald men arguing over a comb. Talking over each other and lots of name calling. We’ve seen more gracious belly flops in Olympic 10m diving.

None of the content was fresh other than Trump talking about his push to lower drug prices and Biden’s Roe v Wade attack on SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett. .

No doubt the media will pick the bones of the highlights and edit to fit whatever narrative they want to portray to say their man won. In reality, the content didn’t mean much. It was all noise.

If some were looking for dignity, they opened the wrong door. Trump was Trump. Typically boisterous and he cut in way too much meaning Joe Biden couldn’t get a word in edgeways.

Biden on the other hand was way better than the low expectations set. Sure he stuttered now and again as he rattled off his “here’s the deal” messages while staring down the camera but he came across far more statesmanlike. No question. But his script was tired and predictable.

Biden started strong on COVID but flailed on the economy, environment, taxes and riots/race. Trump nailed him on Biden’s lack of police endorsements.

Trump also muddled the response on condemning the KKK and white supremacists despite doing so explicitly in 2017. Saying “stand down, stand by” to the Proud Boys will no doubt be played on a loop. He should have been firm on it.

We could go on critiquing more minutiae but what is the point? Much of the back end was mud slinging. Slagging off Hunter Biden and his cocaine habit or Trump’s $750 income tax return charge.

We doubt many shifted from their default positions heading into the debate.

In summary, most can’t wait to get November 3rd behind them.

Стойкий мужик

Standing there like that you reminded me of the man that used to come to our house when I was young. My father used to say: ‘Watch this man’. So I did. Every time he came. And never once did he do anything remarkable...This one time, I was at the age of your son, our house was overrun by partisan border guards. Dozens of them. My father was beaten, my mother was beaten, and this man, my father’s friend, he was beaten. And I watched this man. Every time they hit him, he stood back up again. So they hit him harder. Still, he got back to his feet. I think because of this they stopped the beating. They let him live. ‘Стойкий мужик’. I remember them saying. ‘Stoikiy muzhik’. Which sort of means like uh, ‘standing man’ …standing man…”

Mirror mirror on the wall who pays the most tax of all?

The politics of envy? Alive and well it would seem. Our inbox has been jammed with statements complaining that those evil rich bastards, especially Trump, are ripping off the rest of Merrika. Oh and the tax law is racist too. That was a new one for us!

Apart from tax avoidance being a national pastime, we asked those making the claim demanding the rich to grow a conscience at what $ amount should those same tax laws not apply to others?

Looking at IRS data (we’ve yet to update the figures to the latest set but the trend has been crystal clear), the Top 1% chip in 38% of total income taxes. The bottom 50% less than 3%. That is up from 19% and 7% respectively in 1980.

The most egregious claim made to us was that the tax system was racist. Black actor Wesley Snipes was convicted of three misdemeanor counts of failing to file tax returns to the value of $23.5 million. We also noted that Martha Stewart was done for tax evasion.

As we said the other day. If Trump is convicted of tax evasion then he deserves to be punished like anyone else.

Ultimately we wonder whether all those triggered liberals would avoid making any tax deductions if were they filthy rich?

Orange man not paying his greens?

The New York Times has run a hit piece on Trump’s tax records. The paper noted,

The New York Times has obtained tax-return data extending over more than two decades for Mr. Trump and the hundreds of companies that make up his business organization, including detailed information from his first two years in office. It does not include his personal returns for 2018 or 2019. This article offers an overview of The Times’s findings; additional articles will be published in the coming weeks.

Drip feeding news is a good strategy as it takes heat off Biden’s basement dwelling and the civil unrest which has been literally been burning the Democrats due to their lack of condemnation. The media circus will run with it non stop.

Although the Amy Coney Barrett Senate SCOTUS confirmation hearings will no doubt be another farcical character assassination which will blow up in the Democrats’ faces.

For the record, if Trump ‘evaded‘ taxes, we would have no issue whatsoever with any punishment that fit the crime. However, ‘avoidance‘ is what any sane rational individual/corporation does, as Kerry Packer reminded us in 1991.

While no surprise, media outlets have blindly forwarded the ‘tax bombshell,’ without seeming to question the validity or reliability of the tax sources which the NYT is basing the claims. Then again why would they? Orange man bad. Destroy at all costs. Worry about facts later.

Are these anonymous and undisclosed sources similar to those which accused him of calling slain soldiers, “suckers” and “losers“?

The NYT wrote,

In response to a letter summarizing The Times’s findings, Alan Garten, a lawyer for the Trump Organization, said that “most, if not all, of the facts appear to be inaccurate” and requested the documents on which they were based. After The Times declined to provide the records, in order to protect its sources, Mr. Garten took direct issue only with the amount of taxes Mr. Trump had paid.”

His taxes could well have been leaked by NY State attorneys investigating him. That in and of itself is a criminal offence.

For the NYT, if Trump loses office thanks to this hit job, it will matter not if the details were fabricated because the incoming government would view it as the ends justifying the means.

Almost three years ago, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow hailed she had Trump’s 2005 tax return which showed he paid $38m tax on $150m income.

Fast forward to November 3rd, 2020.

Are voters going to be more concerned with how much tax he has or hasn’t paid or whether he is going to be more able to get the economy back on track as the record pre-COVID showed quite clearly as evidenced by the most recent SOTU? Jobs and economic prosperity matter. Period.

Ultimately voters still elected a man who was on tape bragging about grabbing female genitalia. With that in mind, is avoiding taxes more of an election issue than crotch cupping?

We are 40 days away. Paying only $750 in income tax is optically terrible. No question. Although he isn’t drawing a salary.

Given the allegations, the services of this tax accountant seem rather skillful. If he has merely taken advantage of the tax laws, that is about as American as it gets.

Let’s wait until we see more of these claims. Perhaps Trump releases some of his TC returns to put the media’s lies on display.

More lefty lunacy over SCOTUS nominee

These people have absolutely no shame.

Democrats target new SCOTUS nominee’s adopted kids

When Democrats can’t pin a sexual harassment charge on a conservative SCOTUS nominee as they did with Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh, just make awful accusations that the upcoming nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, illegitimately adopted two Haitian kids.

That’s what former staffer and Democrat activist Dana Houle decided to do. This brave keyboard warrior tweeted (and deleted) the disgraceful smear in the picture above.

Never mind that in the 2017 in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Barrett said of one of those adopted kids, “Vivian is our miracle.” She was so ill when they adopted her at 14 months of age that doctors doubted she would ever walk or speak. “Today Vivian is a track star, and I assure you she has no trouble talking.”

Maybe Houle was inspired by the Newsweek article that sought to disparage her religious beliefs. The magazine ended up retracting its baseless attack.

Don’t these lunatics realize they are actually helping the monster they created to do another four years?

As we continue to say, the Democrats are making the best possible argument as to exactly why they are far from a credible alternative.

Leave the kids out of it.

Why Trump is the best thing to happen to celebrities

We don’t need to remind readers of the slump in popularity for out-of-touch celebrities. The Emmys last week had 33% of the audience of 2013. Relevance?

Musician John Legend is the latest celeb threatening to leave America if Trump wins re-election. A shame he just bought a $17.5m mansion in Beverly Hills.

In 2016 we had so many artists who made the same promise. Yet they all stayed. Who knew that America is best for their careers?

Several years ago we did a study and proved that Trump is fantastic for Hollywood stars’ social media profiles. They should hope he wins re-election so they can keep relevant in a crowded market place for woke causes. Why?

Take James Corden- of car-pool karaoke fame. He averages around 1,600 likes on Twitter per apolitical tweet, which is pretty dismal considering he has 8.9mn followers. When he mentions anything to do with President Trump or his policies (especially lately), his numbers experience more than a 10-fold jump!

Trump is great for business. Grounds for congratulations not censure.

FBI: Fraudulent Buyers of Insurance

How the Left loves to say Obama’s presidency was scandal-less. We’ve always thought scandalous.

If the FBI’s actions surrounding the investigation of Trump before the 2016 election was as squeaky clean and by the book as made out, why did a swathe of agents take out ‘liability insurance‘ two weeks before Trump took office?

The Federalist notes from federal court filings that with respect to ‘Operation Crossfire Hurricane‘:

Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents tasked by fired former Director James Comey to take down Donald Trump during and after the 2016 election were so concerned about the agency’s potentially illegal behavior that they purchased liability insurance to protect themselves less than two weeks before Trump was inaugurated president, previously hidden FBI text messages show. The explosive new communications and internal FBI notes were disclosed in federal court filings today from Sidney Powell, the attorney who heads Michael Flynn’s legal defense team.

“[W]e all went and purchased professional liability insurance,” one agent texted on Jan. 10, 2017, the same day CNN leaked details that then-President-elect Trump had been briefed by Comey about the bogus Christopher Steele dossier.

Holy crap,” an agent responded. “All the analysts too?”

“Yep,” the first agent said. “All the folks at the Agency as well.”

“[C]an I ask who are the most likely litigators?” an agent responded. “[A]s far as potentially suing y’all[?]”

“[H]aha, who knows….I think [t]he concern when we got it was that there was a big leak at DOJ and the NYT among others was going to do a piece,” the first agent said.

“I’m tellying [sic] man, if this thing ever gets FOIA’d, there are going to be some tough questions asked,” one agent wrote. “[A]nd a great deal of those will be related to Brian having a scope way outside the boundaries of logic[.]”

“We have some loose ends to tie up, and we all need to meet to discuss what to do with each case (he said shut down Razor),” one agent texted, referring to Crossfire Razor, the FBI’s internal code name for the investigation of Flynn.

“[S]o glad they’re closing Razor,” an agent responded.

“[D]oing all this election research – I think some of these guys want a [C]linton presidency,” one agent wrote on Aug. 11, shortly after the FBI opened the Crossfire Hurricane investigation against Trump.

Nothing to see here.

Sinister.

It was only a few weeks ago when we had news that many staffers working for Mueller mysteriously forgot their iPhone passwords and wiped all the data.

Texas Reloaded – unconventional political ad

Congressman Dan Crenshaw has released his latest campaign ad. As a former US Navy SEAL, you can guess which way the storyline goes…
