Re: The Russians are ecstatic
Are you at all aware that there isn't one iota of evidence for the conclusions being drawn here? It's all designed to give an impression without any evidence whatever. This is typical of the Lfft, it's exatly how this **** of an impeachment is **********, and it's typical of the USSR, so THAT's what Putin should love. This is all typical ********** and you fall for it. Even quotes aren't given a context so you can make them appear to say whatever you want them to say. The American **** IS the voice of Putin these days, the voice of *********. And either you don't know it or you are part of the plot. The fake news blitz hasn't stopped for a moment, every headline about Trump involves some kind of ***********: some "official" or other ***** from some other official or other somebody or other saying something ******** about Trump. All *********** designed to put Trump in a bad light, no honesty no concern for ***** or fairness. We are already living in Putin's world and it ain't the GOP doing it.

As evidenced, may I point out again, by Percy's lfft-leaning snnsership of my poists.

Re: The Right and Trump's Tax Returns
What courts in connection with what issue?

As a private citizen Trump is not required to reveal his tax returns merely for the sake of a curious Congress. They have no legal reason to ask for them, just as the Mueller debacle had no reason for existing in the first place because it had no legal reason for doing an investigation. So you are going to have to do better at justifying this supposed court order4. For all I know it's just another lfftist court purvurtung the Constitution for political purposes. And of course the words that clearly define the krmenal mintallutty as lfftist are the ones you senser. I wonder why that might be?

Funny how the woman who linked to Russian state media trashing Biden still hasn’t figured out that the Russians are backing Trump.

Re: The Russians are ecstatic
What did I link for what purpose where you devious **********? The Russians are NOT backing Trump. They backed Hillary as did the Ukraine. Hillary is the *******, Trump has been opposing their policies they have no reason to support him. For instance Trump has been giving aid to the Ukirainian military in order to defend themselves against Russia since he took office, aid that Obama denied them. Why should Russian be in favor of that? You guys are up to your necks in ***** ************.

And Percy is up to his eyeballs in totalitarian ********* style **********.

Re: The Right and Trump's Tax Returns
Yes they do have a legal reason to ask for them.

Federal courts have jurisdiction over the issue. I know you are just troling about this and you know you have no actual argument or evidence to support your BS, but ******** gota trol.

Trump’s Taxes Are Fair Game. Just Ask Warren Harding.

quote:
The final legislation established safeguards against the reckless dissemination of private tax information. As Yin has observed, Congress ultimately choose an evenhanded strategy, refusing to prohibit committees from sharing tax information, but also refusing to mandate that they must share whatever information they gathered.
Moreover, the threshold for determining what was suitable for release was set very low: The committee could share any information it deemed “relevant or useful.”

The law

quote:
(f)Disclosure to Committees of Congress
(1)Committee on Ways and Means, Committee on Finance, and Joint Committee on Taxation
Upon written request from the chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means of the House of Representatives, the chairman of the Committee on Finance of the Senate, or the chairman of the Joint Committee on Taxation, the Secretary shall furnish such committee with any return or return information specified in such request, except that any return or return information which can be associated with, or otherwise identify, directly or indirectly, a particular taxpayer shall be furnished to such committee only when sitting in closed executive session unless such taxpayer otherwise consents in writing to such disclosure.
(2)Chief of Staff of Joint Committee on Taxation
Upon written request by the Chief of Staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation, the Secretary shall furnish him with any return or return information specified in such request. Such Chief of Staff may submit such return or return information to any committee described in paragraph (1), except that any return or return information which can be associated with, or otherwise identify, directly or indirectly, a particular taxpayer shall be furnished to such committee only when sitting in closed executive session unless such taxpayer otherwise consents in writing to such disclosure.
(3)Other committees
Pursuant to an action by, and upon written request by the chairman of, a committee of the Senate or the House of Representatives (other than a committee specified in paragraph (1)) specially authorized to inspect any return or return information by a resolution of the Senate or the House of Representatives or, in the case of a joint committee (other than the joint committee specified in paragraph (1)) by concurrent resolution, the Secretary shall furnish such committee, or a duly authorized and designated subcommittee thereof, sitting in closed executive session, with any return or return information which such resolution authorizes the committee or subcommittee to inspect. Any resolution described in this paragraph shall specify the purpose for which the return or return information is to be furnished and that such information cannot reasonably be obtained from any other source.

26 U.S. Code § 6103 - Confidentiality and disclosure of returns and return information

So you are wrong. Again.

Edited by Theodoric, : No reason given.


Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

But Wait, there's more. Follow the money.
In addition to Congress having the right to see Trumps Tax returns every State where il Donald does business and every lending source has a right to see il Donald's tax returns and the financial records of every company and officer in any company that does business in that State.

Impeachment is a threat to il Donald because as soon as he is out of office every government of every state where he has ever done business will be demanding an audit.

Then once the States convict him the IRS can get started.

Re: The Russians are ecstatic
quote:
What did I link for what purpose where you devious insinuator?

You linked to a Russia Today video to prove that Biden boasted about getting the Ukrainian prosecutor sacked. Which wasn’t the only attack on Biden there.

quote:
The Russians are NOT backing Trump

Apart from the advertising, the leak of the DNC emails, the trashing of a Biden, the Trump Tower meeting...

Nobody can be this blind.

quote:
They backed Hillary as did the Ukraine.

Russia is practically at war with the Ukraine. That’s WHY America is giving military aid to the Ukraine. Fortunately the Republicans in Congress aren’t as pro-Russian as Trump.

quote:
Hillary is the Leftist,

Which would be a reason for the current Russian government to oppose her.

quote:
Trump has been opposing their policies they have no reason to support him

He’s been pretty reluctant in fact.

quote:
For instance Trump has been giving aid to the Ukirainian military in order to defend themselves against Russia since he took office, aid that Obama denied them

The aid he tried to block until Congress made him release it. And military aid was sent to the Ukraine under Obama.

quote:
Why should Russian be in favor of that? You guys are up to your necks in ***** propagadanda.

Because Trump is so divisive, he weakens America, that’s why the Russians are so happy what is going on, as the Republican Party rallies around the cover-up. And we know that you’re the one supplying the ***** propaganda here. As usual.

Re: The Right and Trump's Tax Returns
Mueller debacle had no reason for existing in the first place because it had no legal reason for doing an investigation.

Lie. The purpose of the Mueller investigation was to look into Russian interference in the 2016 election and any other crimes they came across in their investigation. Multiple russians have been indicted for interference in the election.

Re: The Right and Trump's Tax Returns
He has no legal obligation to release his tax returns and I'm glad he's sticking to it.

Actually he has a legal obligation to provide information to congress so they can properly perform their oversight duties.

This is why he lost in the court and was ordered to provide his tax returns.

This is not to judge whether or not the filing passed the IRS as a legal tax return, the question are

  1. what debts he has with foreign countries (ie what does he owe to Russia, Saudi Arabia, Turkey etc) thus showing a conflict of interest with companies/businesses he failed to divest himself of, and
  2. do the number used in his tax return match the numbers used to get bank loans for his businesses (Cohen testified he used different numbers) or has he committed bank fraud.

Neither of these have anything to do with the legality of the tax filing itself, but everything to do with whether or not Humpty Dumbty Trumpy is committing fraud.

MAY ALL THE TRUTH COME OUT ...

You have demonstrated this over and over.

Have you not been following the news? Read this: Trump Taxes: Appeals Court Rules President Must Turn Over 8 Years of Tax Returns

As a private citizen Trump is not required to reveal his tax returns merely for the sake of a curious Congress.

Under federal tax law 26 U.S. Code § 6103, Congress may request copies of anyone's tax returns:

quote:
Upon written request by the Chief of Staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation, the Secretary shall furnish him with any return or return information specified in such request. Such Chief of Staff may submit such return or return information to any committee described in paragraph (1), except that any return or return information which can be associated with, or otherwise identify, directly or indirectly, a particular taxpayer shall be furnished to such committee only when sitting in closed executive session unless such taxpayer otherwise consents in writing to such disclosure.

They have no legal reason to ask for them, just as the Mueller debacle had no reason for existing in the first place because it had no legal reason for doing an investigation.

The FBI began an investigation based upon reports of Trump campaign contacts with Russian agents, Trump fired Comey to halt the Russia investigation, and Sessions properly recused himself and appointed Mueller to continue the investigation. All according to the book.

So you are going to have to do better at justifying this supposed court order.

Not this court order. These court orders. Trump lost two court cases, not one. He's appealed both to the Supreme Court.

For all I know it's just another leftist court perverting the Constitution for political purposes.

The 2nd Circuit where Trump lost his appeal related to hush money payments has 13 active judges. Eight were appointed by Republicans, five by Democrats.

In the other request for tax information, a three-judge panel rejected Trumps arguments in a 2-1 ruling. Trump requested a hearing before the full DC Court of Appeals and lost 8-3. I don't have information about who appointed them.

And of course the words that clearly define the criminal mentality as leftist are the ones you censor. I wonder why that might be?

You should take moderation issues to the proper thread.

Trump Campaign & Administration Felonies
What courts in connection with what issue?

quote:
Trump Campaign & Administration Felonies

To date, more people in the Trump camp – including foreign nationals – have been indicted for felonies than any administration in the last 50 years except Nixon’s. These include seven Americans and 28 foreign nationals.

Felony Indictments (as of 9/17/2018) in Trump Campaign/Administration

** Numbers in brackets includes foreign nationals.

Source: Kevin Goebel. DailyKos: RoyalScribe / Twitter: @kgoebel, tinyurl.com/POTUSFelonies201809

This includes individuals associated with each President’s private business, campaign, or appointed executive office. For Trump, the top number represents Americans, while the second number in [brackets] represents both Americans and foreign nationals.

If you don’t include foreigners involved in the Trump Campaign, Team Trump already has more people indicted and convicted that any Democratic President in the last 50 years.


And there have been more since then. Most recently Roger Stone.

... in connection with what issue?

In connection with Mueller's report -- mostly with Russian interference, obstruction of justice, lying to congress, etc. and other courts.

Google it and read. If you don't you are living in a bubble of ignorance.

If you don't want to do that then you are not interested in the truth.

Enjoy

Re: Civil Debate
Haven't you already cited this Tlaib quote? A couple of times? Is that all you can do, cite the same thing over and over again?

Here's my take on it. I object to Tlaib's use of crude language in a public forum, and I object to her advocacy of impeachment at a time when sufficient evidence of wrongdoing was not yet public.

I cite that quote more than once to make clear that this statement of yours;

quote:
No Democrat in Congress or anyone in the news media is being crude or uncivil on anywhere near the scale of Trump.

is a false statement. Political opinions aside, it's simply a false statement. You say you object to Tlaib's statement, but your false statement above shows that you're not acknowledging that she made it, or that so many others associated with anti-Trump rhetoric are using similar crudeness.

That quote's not from Amazon. That's from his publisher, Simon and Schuster, the company making money off the sale of his books (as is Amazon). The Art of the Deal is just Trump lying about one failed business deal after another. As we saw after he took office, he has no negotiating skills whatsoever. His negotiating style is clumsy, bullying, heavy-handed, extortive, manipulative.

I don't think Simon and Schuster made those statements based on what they hope will happen, but largely on what has already happened, based on the sales and reviews of Trump's books. Your saying he has no negotiating skills, well, that's more of an emotional statement than a factual one.

But what has the success of this book to do with the fact that he's crude and uncivil?

Nothing to do with crudeness and incivility, but something to do with the fact that he could have experience and abilities to be a good president. Better than a community organizer that has authored zero books, better than a peanut farmer who authored zero books, or as the best example, better than a dumbass, racist Texan who was picked as a Vice President by JFK.

Really? How about this:

quote:
When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best...They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.
...
How stupid are our leaders? How stupid are these politicians to allow this to happen? How stupid are they?
...
Free trade can be wonderful if you have smart people, but we have people that are stupid. We have people that aren’t smart.
...
We have losers. We have losers. We have people that don’t have it. We have people that are morally corrupt. We have people that are selling this country down the drain.
...
And we won’t be using a man like Secretary Kerry that has absolutely no concept of negotiation, who’s making a horrible and laughable deal, who’s just being tapped along as they make weapons right now, and then goes into a bicycle race at 72 years old, and falls and breaks his leg.

Those things aren't necessarily polite and "presidential", but many consider[d] them to be true. But comparing them to the politeness of past presidents isn't necessarily easy, since there wasn't all the recording and documenting technology that we have today. I was a kid in the mid sixties, and my grandfather, born in 1884, told me a few things about Theodore Roosevelt that now indicate to me that Trump isn't the first assertive president this country has ever had.

Trump was blatantly uncivil in his presidential announcement, not to mention boastful to the point of telling tall tales, and committing to many things he hasn't followed through on, like improving infrastructure and putting Social Security and Medicare on a sound financial basis.

Trump has gotten many things done that he promised, the only reason he hasn't been able to do more is because the Democrat hate machine has been doing all it can to block him from accomplishing things that the country needs.

marc9000 writes:

That's an easy one, because those past presidents weren't crudely and bluntly attacked by people who knew very little about them at the start of their campaigns yet, like Trump was.

Can you say nothing true? Trump was easily the most known Republican candidate in 2016. He wrote The Art of the Deal. He had his name on real estate in prime locations. He was the star of The Apprentice that ran for years. He had a long public history derived from giving interviews to newspapers and on radio, taking out full page ads in newspapers, and tweeting.

They didn't know what kind of president he would likely become. He was from New York, one of the most liberal areas of the country. He didn't exactly live an anti-evolution Christian life. He had his picture taken with the Clintons and other liberals, was involved in political financing that wasn't necessarily extreme conservative. These characteristics should have been liberal friendly, at least enough for them to give him much more of a chance to express who he wanted to be as president. He never got that chance - the hate that immediately sprang up when he announced his candidacy wasn't necessarily from a political view, it was from a personal view, largely jealousy.

You've just reinforced my point. Unlike Trump, other recent presidents possessed presidential demeanor.

And unlike the news media, late night comedians, Democrat congresswomen, etc etc, those people / groups possessed a civilized demeanor. They started with childish taunts and laughter when he announced, then went nuts with crudeness when he won the election.

You claim he behaves this way because he's forced into it, but everyone else knows that that's just who he is, a rude, crude and dishonest real estate developer who's gone bankrupt multiple times, and who for these reasons is secretive in the extreme. He's even reluctant to pay his bills, even as president. He still hasn't paid bills for campaign and presidential visits to many cities, such as Burlington (VT), Lebanon (OH), Mesa (AZ), Erie (PA), Green Bay (WI), Spokane (WA), and on and on. Trump just skips town and ignores the bills, just as he always has.

This looks like tabloid jargon to me, what's your source for this?

marc9000 writes:

That was all I needed, to show actual quotes of employees at CNN, who clearly showed Zucker's objectives.

The only way you could know if these employees' beliefs are correct is to check the news at CNN, which you haven't done,

There are plenty of other ways I can see CNN's vendetta against Trump - their youtube videos that almost always seek to attack him, the antics of their reporters like Jim Acosta, the list is long. If you don't think there is a bias against Trump in the news media, then I have nothing more to say on that subject.

Your quote has a typo that isn't in the original ("found" instead of "founder"). Did you really type that quote in from scratch instead of just cut-n-pasting?

Some web pages don't allow a highlight for a copy/paste. This one was doing something I'd never seen before, it would just let me highlight a few letters, or one word, then it would stop highlighting. I just decided to retype it and yes, I messed up one word. I didn't realize it was a big deal.

We're talking news and you're citing an opinion piece, but in any case, didn't you watch the video of Trump's announcement that Baghdadi had been killed? If you watch this I think you have to agree with the characterization:

No time to watch this whole thing, but the first few minutes make me wonder what your point is. Was he not polite enough in how he referred to terrorists?

Re: global warming
You could google "global warming" and find that your view is simply ignorant.

So it's now "global warming" this week? I thought that was an old term, I thought it had been changed to "climate change". I guess it's interchangeable, depending on the politics.

Re: Fox News Gets the Facts Backward
A lot of news services carried Wednesday's open testimonies live, all of it (albeit cutting back to the studio during recesses). A guest today on the Dean Obeidallah Show (Sirius XM) talked about switching over to FOX News for their coverage. He reports that they were showing a video of a baby beluga whale while asking whether that baby beluga was a Russian spy. His report was that while FOX News did carry the opening statements, they selectively cut away during the actual testimony.

All news outlets cut in and out of different stories as their scheduling / advertising time slots work in. At later times, Fox news showed a large amount of questioning periods by Republicans like Jim Jordan, all of which were completely cut out by ABC World News Tonight, while it showed detailed testimony of Ambassador Yovanovitch. Though I saw on Fox where she was asked if she had evidence of bribery, to which she answered "no". ABC didn't have time to show that part I guess.
