Dark Money. But it’s not Trump. And the rest of the story

The Left Hates Amy Coney Barrett Because She Disproves All Their Lies About Women. Joy Pullmann – “Here is a rundown of just some of the left’s lies about women that Barrett’s achievements undermine.”

Why Americans Need To Rediscover The Founders’ View Of Equality. Robert Curry – “Today, an ever-expanding notion of inequality dominates public discourse.” … “This focus on inequality is part of the assault on the American idea that we see every day in the media and in academia.”

“For the American Founders, we are all equal in that we all possess unalienable rights equally; these two truths are, at heart, one truth. This way of relating our equality and our unalienable rights provides a precise definition of the Founders’ idea of equality. Endowed equally with unalienable rights by our Creator, we are created equal.

Donald Trump Paid Zero Taxes? Good for Him. Bob Maistros – “Uh huh. Shocking charges made against The Donald based on thinly sourced or withheld information? Where have we heard that one before?” Guilt shaming by innuendo … why do people sink so low as to engage in such behavior or to follow it?

The Times is proud that it released Trump’s tax returns, but it shouldn’t be. Andrea Widburg – “The self-congratulations are premature. The Times’ article reveals that Trump was telling the truth all along about his audit.” … “For years, Trump rebuffed demands that he produce his tax returns by saying that the IRS is auditing him, and he will not produce the returns while the audit is ongoing. The article confirms that” Again. The only illegality or impropriety here is the leak of the tax returns.

“The Times’ intrepid reporters are not interested in the fact that Joe Biden used his political connections to enrich his family, especially Hunter. They don’t write that (to date) there is unrefuted evidence that Biden blocked the new Ukrainian government’s efforts to root out corruption by withholding American money until Ukraine stopped investigating a corporation that paid Hunter for doing nothing. You’d think that a major news outlet would find that intriguing a story involving political corruption and foreign meddling, but the Times has given it a hard pass.

As far as I know, the reason presidential candidates made their tax returns public is that all of our recent presidents have spent their lives in politics. They didn’t hold real jobs. Instead, they were banking taxpayer dollars. Taxpayers, therefore, were entitled to know whether the politician got rich off of them. That’s most assuredly not the case with Donald Trump.

The only reason the Times wanted Trump’s returns was to embarrass him, either by showing that he was rich (the hateful plutocrat) or poor (the lousy businessman).

New York Times Fails at Outlining President Trump’s Taxes Again… sundance – “In the article the Times completely obfuscates the way income taxes are strategically offset by depreciation, mortgage interest and the entire reason why real estate ownership is viewed as a business.”

“In practical terms no President before Trump has ever had his actual business portfolio so deeply connected to the success of the American economy. It doesn’t cost the American taxpayer a dime to have President Trump in office…. Now let’s figure out how DC politicians making $200k/yr are able to become multi-millionaires while holding office.

Was Russia Probe The Most Corrupt U.S. Investigation Ever? I & I Editorial Board – “knowing what we know now, it’s fair to conclude: 1. Clinton campaign colluded w someone suspected of being a Russian spy. 2. MSM fell for it & got duped by Steele dossier. 3. FBI, knowing Steele sub-source was thought to be a Russian spy, conducted an improper investigation.” … “these are not mere campaign hijinks or simple errors. They constitute an organized criminal assault on the electoral system, the presidency and our democratic way of life. It’s now clear, if it wasn’t before, that criminal indictments are in order.” … “If more indictments aren’t forthcoming from the Durham investigation, it likely will be a sign that something’s fundamentally wrong with our political system. And it can’t be fixed with just another election.”

Blm: Where Does The Money Go? John Hinderaker – “In recent months, the Black Lives Matter organization has raised hundreds of millions of dollars (possibly into the billions) from individual and corporate donations. One Minnesota businessman gave the group $25 million. What do they do with all that cash?”

Left-Wing ‘Dark Money’ — Ignored By The Press — Could Tip Several Elections. Sarah Lee – “the presidential race isn’t the only focus of this merry band of barely visible left-wing funders. State races are also on the menu as part of Arabella’s plans to deploy “dark money” spending leftists once defined and then decried.”

And here’s the rest of the story … Alicia Colon – “consider this column, my attempt to fill in the news gap of the most volatile incidents that have inspired incendiary and totally unwarranted responses: the deaths of Michael Brown, George Floyd, Jacob Blake and Breonna Taylor.”
