Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Having predicted that the first presidential debate was Hillary Clinton’s to lose, the media consensus in its immediate aftermath appeared to be that she had won. Some credited the Democratic nominee for luring Trump into taking the bait on his birther obsession and his cruelty to women; some blamed moderator Lester Holt for pressing him more than Clinton; and some disparaged Trump’s arrogant failure to prepare for this crucial moment.

Among the most telling consequences of that poor preparation was what sounded like a very damaging admission that the self-proclaimed billionaire doesn’t pay federal income taxes.

Responding to a question from Holt about his continuing refusal to release his tax returns — as presidential candidates have done for more than 40 years — he again claimed that he was “under a routine audit” that precluded disclosure. (He didn’t produce a letter of notification from the IRS about the alleged audit, which either Clinton or Holt might have demanded.) He said once more that he would produce his tax returns when the IRS completes the alleged audit.

For 40 years, everyone running for president has released their tax returns,” Clinton retorted. “You can go and see nearly, I think, 39, 40 years of our tax returns, but everyone has done it. We know the IRS has made clear there is no prohibition on releasing it when you’re under audit. So you’ve got to ask yourself, why won’t he release his tax returns?”

Is it because he isn’t as wealthy as he claims to be? she wondered. Is it because he isn’t really so charitable? Is it because he doesn’t want Americans to know how much money he owes to foreign banks (in Russia or China or both)?

Or is it because he doesn’t pay any income taxes at all? Clinton suggested that might well be true “because the only years [of Trump taxes] that anybody’s ever seen were a couple of years when he had to turn them over to state authorities when he was trying to get a casino license, and they showed he didn’t pay any federal income tax.”

Trump blurted: “That makes me smart.”

As the debate moved on, the casino developer complained that the Treasury has accumulated too much debt while the government has neglected American infrastructure. “We’re a debtor nation,” he cried.

“And maybe because you haven’t paid any federal income tax for a lot of years.”

Trump replied: “It would be squandered, too, believe me.”

Snappy as his retorts were, what Trump said suggested strongly that he has indeed paid no taxes. After the debate, while trying to spin the result, he insisted that “of course” he has paid taxes.

It is time for journalists to insist that he prove it.

407 Responses to Debate Gaffe: Did Donald Trump Admit Paying No Federal Income Taxes?

  1. Hopefully, the man that criticized Hillary for preparing for the debate learned something last night. Her response, which in addition to acknowledging that she did, indeed, prepared for the debate, as much as she prepares herself for the responsibilities of the Office she is seeking, learned something last night, but I doubt it.
    Bragging, and calling not paying taxes and contributing to the betterment of our society and our country, being “smart”, highlighted not only the lack of responsibility of Donald Trump, it confirmed how easily he can be put on the defensive, and how prone he is to react like a Jr. High bully. Acknowledging that his attacks against women were influenced by Rosie O’Donnell being mean to him, confirmed once again how immature this man is.
    What began as a fairly good performance, by Trump’s standards, rapidly degenerated into a debate between one of the most qualified candidates to ever run for President, and an over grown bully that is easily rattled, prone to over react, ill informed, and totally unprepared and unfit to be President.
    I would not be surprised if his supporters pretend he did a great job. He didn’t. He demonstrated last night that the bravado, bullying, a superficiality of the shows that made him famous, and the lies and efforts to avoid giving a straight answer, are not enough to demonstrate he is qualified for the most powerful job in the world.

      • Can you just imagine what Leona would have to say about Trump given all those years he and she were at each other’s throats over real estate in NY City?

      • His answer of being “smart” really touched me a lot and I hope many others. Being smart by not paying taxes! This in other words means: “Am smart, I didn’t pay my taxes, you are fools as I have been fooling you all around and you have to elect me as your President”. What an insult to all of us voters this is?

        • Absolutely. I am sure he would expect a US Embassy in one of the countries where he does business to protect his assets and people if there were any international disruption, but he doesn’t believe he should pay taxes to support it. That’s the job of us stupid little people. Also, how can someone who claims to be pro-military and pro-veteran, but not be willing to pay taxi to support the same? Again, that’s the role of us stupid little people!

        • Smart people try to minimize their taxes. Do you do everything to minimize your taxes or do you try to maximize them? Get a grip.

    • As in every debate, each side will say they won. If you look on a conservative site, you will read about how great Trump did. I doubt if anyone on this site or anyone on a conservative site changed their minds after last night. I just wish that Lester Holt knew the facts if he wanted to play fact checker on stop and frisk. He was completely wrong on the facts about that. The Supreme Court ruled in a 1957 ruling written by Justice Warren it is constitutional. The New York judge said it was unconstitutional as it was being applied. That is two different things. Also, no federal judge can over rule the Supreme Court. Moderators should be just that, not fact checkers.

      • Lester did know the facts. How about Trump danced around ALL of the answers put to him or deflected it all on Hillary?

        Trump absolutely insists that al Qaeda was caused by Obama. Really? So, does he want to explain why back in 1994, the only author of a book on bin Laden, who actually is also the only author who interviewed him in Afghanistan stated that al Qaeda was caused by the very thing Trump said last night, “We should take their oil.”

        Well sure. When you want something, like a bully, you just TAKE it right? Be sure you raise your kids to do that.

          • It was the same thing Trump twisted about the money paid to Iran. Part of the Iran deal was to pay off what Reagan promised and never paid. So you can see how Trump twisted that to mean that Obama is paying off the Iran ransom. The Iran ransom was Reagan’s domain. Not Obama’s. Trump doesn’t play fair. In fact, Trump has no clue what FAIR means. That’s why he is so dangerous.

          • Obama has been a clean up president since the day he entered office. Most Americans knew that back in 2009, he should have held investigations into the Bush administration.

            When he didn’t, it wasn’t because he didn’t want to. It was because the Republicans plotted to keep him so busy with obstructing his presidency that he had no time to take on these investigations. It was to Republican advantage to crucify any plans of this president. In reality, they were only putting off the consequences of their actions during the Bush Administration.

            The problem for the GOP now is that time hasn’t healed all wounds among Americans who knew that the GOP got us into Iraq for the cowboys lust to “take their oil” as Trump said.

            Now, they will have a president they have tried to smear for 4 decades without success. Hell hath no fury like a woman wrongly smeared without justification.

          • When we weakened Iraq by attacking them, destroying what security the had under Hussein, we opened the door and made ISIS stronger

        • The only author of a book? Who care what some author writes? That doesn’t make anything the author said true or factual. Next you will be quoting Doonesbury as a source of the truth.

          • Yes…the only author of a book based on an interview WITH bin Laden.

            You don’t care about anything but being a Republican state FREEloader. Guess what? We are going to be as smart as Trump, pay NO taxes like Trump and watch you worked your Hick behinds off finally making it on your own without OUR tax dollars. Ooooh change is coming for “y’all alls.” Ignorance in your case is not bliss…it’s stupidity.

            When an author writes a book based on direct quotes from a man like bin Laden..only a moron like you wouldn’t care. But oh boy…you sho nuf does care bout that hick creep Jeffie Davis right?

          • Were you the so called author? If so how much did you pay to get published? We all know that is the only way you ever got anything published.
            Not only are you a rude, irrational, racist, bigot, you are also a fool. You can only call names because you aging mind is so weak and addled you can’t think at all. I wonder who reads these posts to you.

          • No stupid, the book title is “Holy War,” by Peter Bergen. I don’t write non-fiction. And yes. I was paid royalties for my two suspense novels.

            So tell us…How much welfare do YOU live on?

            Truth and FACTs are rude …rude awakenings to hicks who live in DogPatch and only know how to lay around all day with nothing to do but troll your BS.

          • “Truth and FACTs are rude …rude awakenings to hicks who live in DogPatch and only know how to lay around all day with nothing to do but troll your BS.”
            Were you talking about the volunteer from Ohio that claimed racism didn’t exist till President Obama took office?

          • She’s one of them. Ohio lost its power as the final say in presidential elections as of 2004 when it came down to Brother Bush’s state.

            The fact is that if Trump becomes president, he opens the door to millions of Americans who will want to be as smart as he is and pay NO taxes. Which leaves the very states that eat up the most in our tax dollars, Republican States, in worse off condition than they already are.

          • Functional illiteracy is when someone can read road signs and write their names, but serious writing is something they just cannot comprehend or I would suggest this poorly educated person read, “Carry Me Home, Birmingham, Alabama.”

          • Like I said before you are a fool, liar, racist, bigot, sexist, name caller, and always find someone else to blame for your failures.

          • By the way, the reason you don’t care is because when someone like author Kevin Phillips, “American Dynasty” exposes with bibliographies that prove what he wrote, morons like you only read FICTION.

      • If that is true then you have to change thr way you apply S&F to make it usable ! Duh so it still means S&F as we know it is UnConstitutional !

        It will be 2 different things if they find a way to apply it !

        • Republican Governor Whitman here in NJ got nailed and got the state police in huge trouble when she decided to monitor who was getting stopped by state police. It was an overwhelming number of minorities nearly 20 to 1. And, when the study was done, it was due to state police profiling usually based on exactly what Hillary stated last night, “police with personal perceptions.”

          I don’t think you can find a way to create a profile of a criminal. Not when you have criminals who fit the same profile as police: white and male.

          • Last year in May 2015, two good ole good ole GA gun smugglers got nailed in NY City in one of the major minority inner city areas. Then, this year the same good ole good ole NC gun smugglers got caught in the Holland Tunnel with an arsenal of weapons they planned to sell in the black communities.

            This is what these good ole boys call, “culling the herds” of blacks they so despise.

            The NY/NJ Metro area knows that the good ole white boys in the south use I95 as their personal path to reducing the number of black males they sell those Saturday night specials to.

          • That’s what S&F/profiling leads to. Exactly what the Constitution was written specifically to prevent, abuse of power. Frankly I don’t see why these usually anti government nuts would defend S&F unless they are total minions to supporting anything the Right Wing Authoritarians tell them the Left is against. Like: Here Rayford, stick your head right here in this guillotine! Sure it’s Constitutional!
            I guess? But it will drive the Negros, Liberals and Mexicans nuts! Great then, I’m all for it!!! It’s insane!

        • The Supreme Court said it is legal, I gave you the year and the Justice that wrote the decision of the 8 – 1 vote. A federal judge cannot over rule the Supreme Court. I don’t know how you view stop and frisk, but I know how the Supreme Court views it. It is legal and constitutional.

      • The facts on stop and frisk are thus. A Federal Judge ruled the way it was being carried out, especially in the locations, and people of color upon which it was overwhelmingly being used, was in violation of the 4th Amend. And the African American, and Latino communities do not need a Left Wing website to agree, it was onerous governmental action aimed directly at them. As the raw numbers proved. NY’s finest wasn’t cruising the streets of lower Manhattan, stopping and frisking Wall Street Bankers. Although, maybe they should have been. The S&F Policies themselves were a continuation by Bloomberg of a Giuliani, so called, “broken windows,” policy, a new Mayor de Blasio did not agree with. And so did not instruct his legals to continue an appeal previously launched by the former Mayor Bloomberg. So Lester Holt was correct. S&F as it now stands by the judge’s uncontested ruling, unconstitutional.

        • The current Mayor DeBlasio said it best. If Stop and Frisk had remained, DeBlasio’s own son being bi-racial would be stopped and frisked for no reason other than being bi-racial.

          • Something those 20% of Latinos who are reportedly voting Trump might ought to consider before casting that unfortunate vote. Now, that’s a number, 20%. Believing it is difficult, but so was Trump’s nomination of a supposedly conservative Party.

          • That’s what I don’t get. We have several thousand Trump Casino and hotel workers who are now unemployed because Trump had to hurry up and close his casinos when he got that FinCEN fine. Most of them are Latinos. Why on earth would they get run over by Trump the Bulldozer and then vote for him?

        • The judge did not and cannot change the ruling of the Supreme Court. The judge said it was being applied unconstitutionally. Stop and frisk is not unconstitutional.

          • are you a nutbag? If the SC stated the use of Stop and Frisk represented profiling and ruled that profiling as used in Stop and Frisk is Unconstitutional, how do you morons of belligerence and contradiction dare say it is constitutional?

            Yeesh…How stupid do you need to get before we decide you need to be institutionalized?

          • You are really a fool. Now you believe a judge can over rule the Supreme Court. Of course I shouldn’t be surprised as you are the only person (if you are one) in the United States that says Bill Clinton was not impeached.

          • Sorry toots. you are a troll who every day finds something bad to say about someone. Which is a very big indication of GEEZER disease.

            Bill Clinton was NOT impeached. He served out his entire 8 years didn’t he stupid?

            And, don’t for one minute think those golddigger women like Flowers and Dolly Kyle that bottle blonde Dixiebelle who plays around with married men are not hating the fact that all of their playing up to a powerful man like President Clinton resulted in them being cast aside as Other Women who stick their noses in someone’s marriage always get in the end.

          • You just proved again how ignorant and uninformed you are. You still don’t know the difference between impeachment and removal from office. You call someone else stupid when you have no idea what you are talking about. Like I have said you are a fool, a sexist, a racist, a bigot, name caller. Try reading the Constitution and learn the difference between impeachment and removal from office. You call yourself a feminist, yet you support a sexual predator like Bill Clinton.

          • Trump was sleeping with Marla Maples while he was married to Ivana. He was sleeping with Melania while married to Marla so whose setting the moral standards here? As for Hillary not looking presidential, maybe people should look up the ad Melania made for the NRA and the Hustler magazine poses to see if she looks like a first lady.

          • I believe a little thing called probable cause is the difference. The law may stop you, and search you for weapons or contraband, if they have reason to mess with you in the first place. Being Black or Brown, and walking along in the neighborhood, isn’t that. Or isn’t that how we want it anymore? Has bogeymen, and the war on drugs gagged our insistence that the Bill of Rights be strictly complied with? It’s a serious question I think we should be asking ourselves frequently. Especially when some demagoguing politician starts sounding like R. Nixon. Gets on their “Law and Order Horse.” We had all better start watching out for our Rights! Doesn’t that make sense to you at all?

          • Probable cause is the difference. Race should have nothing to do with it. Will the police be required to keep a count of how many of each race they stop? If they are in a neighborhood of 75% of any race, will who they stop have to equal exactly 75% of that race? Should there be written guidelines to tell law enforcement is probable cause? What happens in places like Chicago and Detroit? Far to many people are living in fear for their lives and the lives of their families. Do we have to put law enforcement people on every corner in their riot gear and bullet proof suits? The stats say the stop and frisk worked in New York. Maybe it would help, maybe not, but something needs to be done. Is it more jobs in the bad areas, better schools in the bad areas. Bad areas always seem to have many liquor stores and pawn shops and by the hour motels. Maybe control how many of each are allowed would help.

          • In fact S&S really didn’t really work. The numbers the year it ended there were only 7 more murders in New York and it looks like they are back down to the rate of 2014 this year. The SCOUS has found gun control constitutional so we should have gun control by your way of thinking. Go read the fourth amendment and see if random searches would be legal.

          • First; I never have said anything about supporting gun control. I have said gun control won’t work because the criminals and terrorists will always have a black market to purchase any weapon they want. You just like to read your own words into what others say. Where did I ever say anything about having random searches. I said probable cause should be required for stop and frisk. The Supreme court said guns can be kept from felons and mentally ill. They ruled that laws not allowing guns in schools and such are legal. They also said guns like sawed off shotguns could be make illegal because they are not weapons normally used for self defense.

          • I’m not from one of these troubled dangerous communities, and neither is Donald Trump, or Mike Bloomberg. Have they asked the residents of these communities who are deeply mistrustful of Police, if they want more Police, and more contact with a skewed, racially biased, criminal justice system? More so called law and order,” solutions, cracking down, stopping, frisking, and shooting even more of their young men, and teenagers for petty infractions?

            If not, ( and they do not) Then, it becomes just another White man’s knee jerk solution to real problems like poor schools, and lack of opportunity that are creating the epic societal fail. Solutions being imposed on them the way they perceive it, by higher ups in a White power structure, that neither cares, nor more importantly, understands next to nothing about their lives.

          • I think Trump is trying to reach out to the minority communities. After some research, I discovered he has had a office specifically for minorities. He now has a very good record of hiring all minorities for top positions in his businesses.
            The only way to discover what the communities really want is to go there and have committees and meeting with the neighborhood leaders and business people. Include teachers, even gang members if necessary to find solutions and answers to problems. Detroit has a organization PAL (police athletic league) where children are given a chance to play in just about every sport there is, they help to build character among the youth and how to become responsible citizens.
            Go to private business and try to get scholarships created to help the underprivileged. I obsessively don’t have the answers, but we can’t keep throwing people away by doing nothing. How many more years of poverty, crime, drugs, gangs must people endure. Our politicians have actually done nothing but give lip service.

          • I would remind you of one politician that started his career as a community organizer in the mean streets of Southside Chicago. Starting with things like child care, and vocational training, and housing for struggling Mothers. Grants for gifted students trapped in inner city schools. Helping such students he had much in common with to understand how to apply for this help. The problem is no one that can make a difference don’t want to get their hands dirty doing the nuts and bolts work at the community level necessary to make a difference. They prefer to stand on a mountain top and make proclamations, and promises of crack downs. While feeding into majority White’s stereotypes, and fanning their fears of an out of control inner city violence spilling over into their comfortable homes in suburbia. That’s the way this demagoguery Trump is spewing works.

          • I don’t see where Obama has done one thing to help the minority community. If anything he has made race relations the worst they have been in 20 years or more. There is now more hate then I have ever seen. Like Trump says, the left has been making promise after promise to minorities, then they disappear after election day. Trump isn’t responsible for the killings in Chicago or Detroit. He wants to stop that.

          • Thanks for being honest and saying you don’t see what Obama has done. That’s fine. Just know those within the African American community see. And they don’t need a Birther, a faker, and con, coming in and telling them who their friends are. Make sense to you? It makes great sense to them. That even if President Obama had done nothing else, his rise to the Presidency gave millions proof that the dream MLK spoke to them about was getting closer for all people of color. That after being brought to this Country in chains, enduring 150 years of Jim Crow, and continued intrinsic, and institutional bias, that a Black parent could say to their young kids, they could be in America anything they wanted. Has the power of anything like that occurred to you? It is the most important event in there lives since King. So then, do you suppose it is this elation, this bolstering of hope, that would explain these supposedly worse race relations? Or is something else altogether? Something having more to do with the other side of the coin’s reaction to the election of a Black man as POTUS? And after all the Black Community’s looking on, as the first of their race to become President of what is their Country also, is wished a failure, attempts are made to delegitimized, to opposed for every conceivable reason, or no simply no reason at all. Transposed against the willful blindness of so many Whites to this unprecedented disrespect for a person holding such a office deserving of, and heretofore given, so much respect. Then of course this Black man who has meant so much to so many African Americans, is blamed by many of theses same Whites for stirring up all the trouble. It is,
            I would say very raunchy. A very bias way of looking, and summing up things.

          • I used to say that Obama was the American dream. He came from noting to be President. I lost my respect for him, when he lied to get his healthcare tax passed. Obama always jumps the gun and automatically blames law enforcement when there is a conformation between a black man and police. He never waits for the facts, he just blames the cops. That attitude alone has really hurt race relations in the U.S. When the police are wrong or commit a crime, then prosecute them. But wait for the facts instead of jumping to conclusions. Look at Baltimore for one example and the cop Obama had a beer with for another. He is the President and needed to act Presidential after these incidents instead of trying to convict the police via the media. After that, I found and still do find it hard to believe anything he says. That is the way I feel about both Trump and Hillary. If I can’t believe what my suppose to be leader says, then I can’t honestly call that person my leader or respect that person as a man or woman. I know people think I support Trump, but I don’t. I see him as the lesser of two evils. There will always be (at least in our lifetimes) racist people. That doesn’t make us a racist nation though. If this nation was racist, then Obama would never have been elected to even the Senate. I don’t know the answers but I do know we need to do something other than give lip service to people every four years. I truly believe Trump will try to do something if he is elected, while I believe Hillary will do nothing except talk to the media and tell them how wonderful she is.

  2. I’m no fan of Hillary, but she should have taken him apart after he jumped in with that remark. It doesn’t make him smart – it makes him a parasite. It’s a patriotic DUTY to support the country financially. Especially for someone that has “used the laws” to declare bankruptcy more than once and has become disgustingly wealthy in the meantime.

    • Women all saw just how men like Trump operate. They were given a question. Trump danced around the answers and then to try and make his ONLY point, he went after Hillary on emails and how she has no stamina. At which point, our Little Hillary did what all women always do to a big mouth man who puffs out his chest, pumps his fists and bellows like an 800 lb gorilla…she nailed him with, “Sit through 12 hours of a federal investigation, over a million miles of travel to nearly every country of the world and then we will talk about “stamina!”

      Gotcha! and Slam dunk!

        • The part I liked was when Trump was asked about why he said “Hillary didn’t look presidential.” To him and the other bean brained gender biased males NO Hillary doesn’t. And certainly not after the ONLY presidential image they’ve had for the past 44 presidents all had male genitals.

  3. Trump has proved in the eyes of every voter that he is not ready to be president. This is the guy who wants to be number one in foreseeing and enforce all country laws including Tax Law. If he didn’t abide to laws when he is a normal civilian, how can he do so when he is given the power of being President? I was also astonished how unprepared this man is. I expected him to be more prepared than his opponent because he is seeking for a different career he never had. Journalists need to hold this man accountable by producing his Tax Returns. If he is not ready to do so, it means, he is not ready to be hired.

    • Who says he didnt abide by laws? Actually thats a very good question considering that his abundant audits have never resulted in any conviction or prison or even fine. We all would have heard about it 24/7 on the news over the decades of Donald Trump. So your allegation is utter BS, especially considering that as President he would have no power to unilaterally change the tax code, as you suggested. Or are you referring to Obama’s dictatorial EO hand as the new benchmark of presidential power and now that scares you?

      • Who says? the IRS. He got a $22 million fine for money laundering at his Taj Mahal Casino after being warned 3 times to cease and desist.

        Nice try at evasion yourself Boxie Boy.

      • Just wondering…..IF Mr. Trump didn’t pay any taxes AND everyone else were as “smart” as he is – how would the government be able to protect the freedoms he has enjoyed that have allowed him to (allegedly) become a billionaire? It’s the DUTY of every citizen to pay taxes.

      • Good leaders lead by showing good example. What good example Trump has to show to those he wants to lead while he is hiding his Tax Returns? If you will ask me to show you my Tax Returns, I will do it without any hesitation and am not a leader.

      • A new low standard is set for GOP Presidents with El Trumpo. They haven’t been convicted of any jail-able offenses, they haven’t been able to pay a fine, or buy their way out of…so far. And even that’s literally reaching for the stars!

      • As you said before the Dems are responsible for much or “all” of the tax code. trump is as much of a patriot as you are an intellectual.

  4. Wow! Cool! Let’s all be as SMART as Trump and pay NO taxes. And won’t the Republican FREELOADER states HATE that? After all, they get 65% of all of our tax dollars, don’t they?

    Won’t it be grand? We pay NO taxes because we are Sooooooooo Smart and the Republican states actually have to make it ON THEIR OWN!

    Oh and I can see the Republican politicians now…on the unemployment lines when there are NO tax dollars to flush to their campaigns. Does it get ANY better than that I ask?

    Thank you Emperor Trump for a wonderful idea. roflmao

  5. The worst was that when Trump was asked when he planned to provide his tax records, he claimed he has had a 12 year audit. Does that mean that the entire IRS has done nothing but work on a 12 year long audit? Or does it mean that Trump so typified the crook CEOs in this country that he didn’t dare tell the bare faced truth…he doesn’t want his tax records to go public, because as Hillary stated, “He has something to hide.”

    Yes. He and half a dozen other crook CEOs have a whole lot to hide…their game playing with tax loopholes.

  6. OMG from Breitbart site poll question “who won the debate?”

    Thank you for voting!
    Donald Trump 75.74% (194,831 votes)
    Hillary Clinton 24.26% (62,411 votes)
    Total Votes: 257,242

    • Breitbart’s testicles are where the glandular problems begin. Trump looked so much the business CEO. One HUGE problem for voters…Do we get to vote for OUR CEOs? But, now that I think about it, wouldn’t it be grand if employees held elections to vote for the Big Business CEOs of OUR choice?

      All I saw of Trump was a strutting CEO who disclosed more than he ever planned to about his “international business” associates. You will notice not once did he dare say a single negative thing about Putin.

      Hillary was an ace at baiting him. She would answer the questions put to her knowing all along that Trump would have to respond in a way that would trap him into saying what he appeared so desperate not to utter.

      • Yeah, she had him by the short hairs! She had done her homework and knew what buttons to push to get him back to his usual ranting self! It worked wonderfully!

    • If the crowd had thrown rotten eggs at Trump Breitbart would have claimed Trump won and that the eggs were a sign of respect.

    • Breitfart is one of those typical sleazy corn holes that charges a buck a vote over smartphone and each blood relative dingbat that voted owes a hundred bucks. They won’t reveal that because numbers sound much better than cousins.

        • OMG!! The most useless uninformed assholes troll this forum.. Look it up yourself you lazy good for nothing wanker. I give you proof you’ll just want proof of the proof II supply and I’m not here to cater to your whiny stupidity. Can you say, white supremacist? Now goolge Breitbart dumb ass.

          • You make statements but are unwilling to back them with facts. Who is the lazy one? You need to look in the mirror you pompous ass.

    • I would not believe Breitbart if my life depended upon it, Breitbart leans so far to the right that if it were a person, it could not stand up straight. And I am very sure that most online type of polls are being stuffed by all the Russian Trolls that Putin has hired to try to influence the outcome of our USA presidential elections. I believe that Russia is indeed interfering with our elections, especially since they hacked into the DNC’s emails and into Hillary’s email, but have ignored both the RNC and Trumpty’s emails. Now exactly WHY would that be?

      • I know, right? I know better but sometimes my bad twin does things like read what they say and actually….I am proud to tell you they have barred me from commenting on their site 🙂

        • That is too funny. 😀 You were probably barred because you wrote the truth and you also made sense . . . heavens, we can’t have truth and logic on site like Faux News and Breitbart – hum maybe they should call themselves FreeFart ?

          • thanks for the laugh…..and I think your title works well. I heard Trump refuses to do another debate if Hillary is there….

          • We can only hope….and who would he expect WOULD be there if not Hillary. After all, she’s running against him….so who else would he debate? What an idiot!

      • I know, right? I know I shouldn’t but sometimes my evil twin does things like this – goes over there just to see what they are saying. I am very proud to say, though, that I have been barred from commenting 🙂

        • So was my son. He used a Hispanic name for his avatar and they called him “wetback, spick, rapist, thief and murderer.” He is a brilliant person and I think you are, too.

          • Those people should scare the crap out of all of us. They are willfully ignorant and Trump has become their Jesus, they will blindly follow him in the face of any facts that prove what he is.

          • Hopefully they will follow him right into the hole he’s digging for himself! I don’t think he’ll do very well in business after he loses this election…people have learned too much about him and his business transactions! I would be VERY wary of dealing with him if I were a big corporation!

          • I made a sign for my desk “banned from Brietbart” and I am trying to figure out how to add that to my avatar:)

    • It’s all a rigged poll, trust me!!! Trump did NOT win the debate, and we all know that! In fact, it’s just been proven that Breitbart “rigged” the polls in their favor, so why would anyone consider them to provide a valid poll figure?

  7. Were a Debyor Nation because since 1981 the Top rate Tax payer have been paying at least 30% less than they did in 1980 !

    The top rate was 73% in 80 the highest it can be today is 39.6% and they still made money.

    And before you say nobody paid 73% then, NO ONE pays 39% now !!!

    • Very true. But the reality of being a debtor nation lies not with taxpayers…But taxpayers burdened by the Republican addiction to war, for profit prisons, relic polluter industries and banks they know rip us all off.

      When I worked as an accounting manager in environmental engineering for nearly 25 years, what I saw was how businesses FORCE taxpayers to keep them in business. Is that what our taxes are for?

      Then, you add in the cost of pollution all of the states BUT polluter states have to pay in clean up and remediation and it’s a wonder we have not had a Great Depression economy for 50 years.

      Add in the cost of war for the past 22 years and it’s enough to wring us all dry of every dime we earn. 65% of all of our tax dollars end up as tax subsidies to Republican states. Check the facts at the GAO. Every Republican states gets from $1.35 to $1.87 for the $1 they pay in taxes. Every Dem state makes it on a lousy 55 cents average for that same $1. How is that not forcing Dem states to support a bunch of big mouth, rabble rouser freeloaders?

        • The problem the Republicans had after Nixon resigned was how to get a president elected that they could control. Nixon was not controllable. He was always the autonomous decision maker. When he got nailed for WaterGate, the GOP power boys went purple trying to figure out how to make sure NO future GOP president EVER again dumped a major disgrace on the party like Nixon’s forced resignation did.

          GHWB was a Nixon CIA chief. He had access to tons of information on Reagan’s medical records. The GOP knew that as CA governor, Reagan was already in the 2nd stage of Alzheimers. Reagan was the ideal front man with GHWB in the back room as president. And, didn’t GHWB win the election next?

          The problem was the GOP screwed up as you posted and Reagan had a 2nd term recession which was carried over into the next presidency. When GHWB was not re-elected, that was a punch in the mouth to the GOP. Worse, electing the son of a single Mom like Clinton made their shame like salt in their wounds.

          They were determined come hell or high water to get a Republican president in 2000 no matter how much they had to rig the election to do it.

          Their big problem with Trump? He is worse a disobedient, bossy, overbearing nut than Nixon could ever be.

        • Definitely….it all started with his “trickle down” theory….the same theory that Trump wants to put into effect. By lowering taxes on the upper class and big corporations, all he’s going to do is give them more money to pay their executives exorbitant bonuses and keep their shareholders happy…..they won’t use it to hire more employees….they didn’t before and they won’t do it now! We’ll just end up back in the same recession we just managed to crawl out of!

      • Idaho takes $1.80 from the government for every dollar they pay. And like red states, they sit around complaining about the gov’mint.

    • We can all thank Grover Norquist for the “raise NO taxes” BS. Taxes HAVE to be raised occasionally since prices for the things we enjoy; i.e., our roads, our national parks, our military, our police forces, etc. all are paid for with our taxes. Maybe if the Congress HAD raised taxes a little on everyone, our police forces would not have to hire officers that have NO temperament to do the job properly!

  8. Then there was the matter of Trump saying “Hillary has the WRONG experience.” So, a guy like Trump who is so smart, pays zero taxes, stiffs his employees and those who work for him and he calls THAT corruption Experience? Gee..so did Madoff and the Enron Boys.

  9. “…he again claimed that he was “under a routine audit” that precluded disclosure.”

    Well, this lame excuse is so worn out that if it were a tire, Trump would fail inspection.
    Trump is definitely hiding some damaging information, and this pathetic excuse of an interminable “routine audit” is exactly the farce that Al Capone would have usedwere he alive today.

    On another note, Trump behaved as anticipated—like a bully with no sign of coherence, a disdain for educating himself on how to comprehend and gauge the pulse of society and of the world, thereby making himself utterly ignorant on how to present himself, how to think analytically, an inability to form premises, not able to provide logical explanations, and arriving at false conclusions.
    One key word that is his mantra on how to interact with people is NEGOTIATE, which in his parlance means to steer any interaction in a way that’s favorable for him and him alone. His business tactic in the past has been motivated by selfishness, and Scrooge-like tactics and strategies.

    Trump’s entire body-language and tone betrayed once again a man who has boxed himself into a corner, and blames his rivals for his self-imposed constipated stance.

    A leopard can’t change its spots, and neither will Trump be able to change a decades-long evolution towards being a Human Leopard without a conscience, being mean-spirited, shallow, callous, and imperious—unless Divine Intervention interposes Itself. But for that to happen, Donald has to want it to happen.

    “O Son of Being! Love Me, that I may love thee. If thou lovest Me not, My love can in no wise reach thee. Know this, O servant! “—Baha’u’llah speaking as the Intercessor in this Day and Age, as Buddha, Muhammad, Jesus, Black Elk, and Others spoke aforetime.

    • Did you notice that when the moderator tried to say that Trump’s tax records could be opened by the IRS, Trump did what all bully mouths do? He cut him off, started bellowing louder than the moderator’s tone so the moderator’s question never got answered.

      This is 100% pure right wing obnoxious BS that Ryan, Chaffetz, Gowdy and Cotton all have pulled on Hillary. Shout her down after asking a question they know she will answer more intelligently.

      So Emperor Stupid does the same thing. He is an obnoxious bossy little creep.

      • I noticed that Trump does that a lot. He believes if he interrupts somebody that he doesn’t wish to hear and talks loudly over them, then that makes him the winner. I noticed that his children do the same thing during interviews – must have learned that from “Daddy Dearest”.

        • If you watch the Congressional Sessions of the House and Senate on CNN on a regular basis, you will see the Republicans use the very same obnoxious, rude strategy. Ask a question and then rudely interrupt before the person can answer.

          That’s known as the Roy Cohn tactic of the McCarthyism era. Cohn would ask a question and then before the person could answer, he’d bellow out his OWN answer truthful or not but overloaded with erroneous innuendos. Those erroneous innuendoes caused innocent people he interrogated to commit suicide rather than submit to anymore of his bullying tactics.

  10. Question isnt whether he or anyone else paid taxes last year but whether or not they broke the law. Democrats are responsible for much or all of the tax code and if a person uses the code to ones advantage, where is the fault?

    In Hoovers and FDRs time, lets focus on FDR because you all need to be reading the book, New Deal or Raw Deal, huge amounts of tax code were created. After all, the IRS was only 20 years old and getting built up. The richest people had the money to hire lawyers to read the code and they worked within the code to pay the lowest taxes. This infuriated FDR whose stance was, “screw the code, get the money!!” This resulted in abundant audit chasing by the new IRS and almost at no time was the rich person in question found in violation of the law. Some people simply paid the IRS alleged bill just to stop the trouble, other times FDR suddenly changed the law in the middle of audits to create a crime for which the rich person had to pay. Some even went to prison.

    If Trump, or Clinton Foundation for that matter, works within the tax code to reduce or eliminate taxes, what is the problem? Bill Gates pays almost no tax, Warren Buffet too, not because they are cheats but because they have the resources to scour the code for breaks—breaks largely created by the Democrats. If you had such resources youd be doing it too.

    In the debate Hillary said Trump didnt pay taxes which could have contributed to the expense of government and to the people. But wait, Clintons famously pay little or no tax so what is the gripe, that people with money should simply pay more than they owe, for fun? Why would anyone?

    According to IRS’s own marketing at tax time, they are RIFE with fraud cases in which common citizens deliberately cheated on their 1040s in order to escape taxes. They are sometimes caught and sent to prison. So, its OK for you to cheat on ghost deductions and lie about income but not for a wealthy person to work within the code to reduce taxes? Read the book and see that the famous people of Progressive targets seldom if ever broke the law.

    So that leaves us with the true issue, that poor people are simply pissed off they are not rich too and THAT is not Trump or Hillarys fault. Get off your fat asses and work!

    • The Clinton Foundation is functioning under IRS tax laws jerk boy. All Foundations other than the bogus Trump Foundation which has claimed to make donations to charities who say they NEVER got one dime from him, are audited every year by independent auditors.

      Trump lied. YOU can’t admit it and you are a COWARD! Sorry cowards need not apply for US citizenship.

      Oh and by the way, Stop and Frisk is unconstitutional. The SC ruled on it as profiling.

    • So what kind of job do you have, my love.
      And I suppose you don’t pay taxes neither.
      Hope you don’t try and do what Trump is doing.

      • Boxie have a job? Hahahahahahahaha! Boxie thinks trolling all day every day IS his job.

        Boxie isn’t “smart” enough to know how to pay “zero” taxes. Nor, could Boxie get himself a nude Playboy centerfold for Wife No. 3.

        • I can’t help but feel for those who admire Trump and his shenanagans.
          And I suspect that many would like to be like him.
          Just like that poor woman who signed on to pay his ‘University’ $35,000 she didn’t have, to learn how to get ‘rich’ like him.
          Trump antics put a used car salepersons to shame, and make Madoff look like a novice.
          Con artist always promise to make it easy for the other guy to learn their methods.
          Oh, well, anyone looking and listening to the debates last night heard him utter UNDER HIS OWN BREATHE, that not paying taxes is being smart.
          He also volunteered what has been a long suspected, but denied reason, for the Iraq War, to commandeer their oil.
          I hope he keeps talking. Or in his case boasting about how brilliant he is.
          Hopefully his fans will get it.

    • Democrats are responsible for much or “all” of the tax code? You blather on and couldn’t find a clue with both hands. You lie as much as trump.

  11. Hey Boxie…Afraid that if we are all as smart as Trump and pay NO taxes, your state and you freeloaders are going to have to finally once and for all time make it on your own?

    You want to do exactly what Trump does: deflect facts and truth on your misguided ideas that all you have to do is put the spotlight on anyone but yourself.

    The biggest thing that was clearly seen about Donald Trump is that he is willing to lie outright or by omission so long as he gets his way.

    Sorry Boxie…this is a GOVERNMENT…not the Emperor Trump’s Empire. All he did throughout the entire debate last night was make references to what he calls his business successes.

    He lied about having the support of the military commanders. In fact, the Joint Chiefs threaten to resign if he becomes president.

    Men like Boxie can only thrive on their mentality of androcratic power and might. Too bad this isn’t North Korea. But I do understand that men like Boxie can end up on a ship headed for that dictatorship.

    Get off the dictatorship addiction Boxie. You and your pathetic ideas of taking over and then taking the country back to your Grandpappy Mutton Chops plantatation days will NEVER happen.

  12. Fact of the matter is, in the years that we know anything about Trump taxes- we only know that he refused to pay what amount he owed until the Federal Government took him to court- and then he would try to pay pennies on the dollar. Some American, huh?

  13. the DONNY DUMP DUMPSTER . calls himself smart to snake out in paying any taxes , his so call being smart might be that for rich greedy bastards but in reality to the rest of the country not just the 1&2 % greedy bastard rich . its the other 98% that have to pay for his and their failures every bankrupt one snakes and sneaks out of paying its not that the bankrupt isn’t paid its that the 98 % of the country have to pony up the money for the failed POS’s . as the DUMPSTER talks his B/S from his mouth in the rim of his AZZ he wants to do as much screwing as he can pretty much with OPM = OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY . him in the house I stated it many times will produce (or he would try to any ways ) the biggest bankrupt ever on record . and he would happily put the USA name on that filing . and if he got it the DONNY DUMP would try to buy back the country he screwed for penny’s on the dollar . if he gets the house ( god help the US and the world then ) him in the house more work will be done making money off what ever way he can set up scams and screwing who ever and what ever he can . his whole POS ‘s family will be working with the DUMPSTER all the way DONNY DUMP Wound sneak and snake so much . he would do more work on the SSssssHHHH down low under the table still doing what he dose best fraud, con and scamming with his clan the country and the world . he thinks being so stupid that if he bury the country like the DIRTY BUSH did that he can pull out a bankrupt that will save him ( more then likely to steal and screw money out for his own pocket )

    • Not to worry. Here in NJ, Trump had to close his Edison NJ campaign headquarters after being open only one month. You can guess why. He stiffed dozens of building contractors who built his two casinos.

      But here is where he gets caught in his lies. He stated last night how successfull a business man he is in one breath and then claimed he didn’t pay these employees and service people because they did “POOR WORK.”

      Figure it out for yourself. If their work was so poor that he felt he shouldn’t pay for it, how the hell can he say the Taj and his Marina Casinos and hotels are successful?

      Once again, Trump’s tongue tied around itself in a pack of spoiled rich boy lies.

    • It’s kind of interesting that during GHWB’s presidency, he bailed out the Silverado S&L, which was owned by his own son Neil. Yet, no one EVER considered that was conflict of interest.

      Then, George’s Arbusto Oil went belly up and that was bankruptcy No. 2 for the Bush boys. Back in the mid 90s, JEB and Neil got into a bankruptcy over the Miami Federal mess, Neil’s 2nd and JEB’s first bankruptcy.

      Trump has dumped 6 corporate bankruptcies on NJ. So now we NJ taxpayers not only get to pay the taxes he didn’t pay, but we also have to pay the costs of his 6 bankruptcies.

      • more important thing would be him and CHEEZY CHENEY with going to war in Iraq and to get the votes from ones in office thy came up with that B/S intelligence of WMD lives still being loss today from it . now that pair that swing in a bull’s sack should be trial for war crimes

        • George W. Bush was never more than Cheney’s front man. Cheney wanted to be president since 1994 when he made his first approach to the RNC to be the front runner. This was at a time when the GOP was still reeling from the Nixon resignation. The Republicans believed that Cheney was too much like Nixon to trust him to be president. Cheney was a Nixon chief advisor.

          So Cheney found another way: Halliburton. In 1996, Cheney became CEO of Halliburton with the deal he struck to get a no-bid contract for military supplies in Iraq. Cheney knew that his Nixon CIA buddy GHWB would be more than willing to offer up his son for front man even though George W. was not exactly a success as a business man and had a serious alcohol problem he was battling.

          When Cheney approached the RNC again in 1998, he was armed with big money to support a Republican presidency in 2000 courtesy of Halliburton. The RNC capitulated and Cheney’s title would be VP but in reality, he would be the back room president for George W.

          Look at how often Cheney had George W. trekking around the country and away from the White House. He had him spend 18 months trying to sell the Iraq war to every state in the union. Then, on 9/11, whether Cheney knew it or not, Bush was away from the White House in Florida and had to take his chances flying back to DC. That was as close as Cheney EVER got to becoming president if the terrorists had taken out Air Force One.

  14. Trump was quite wrong to hold his tax papers hostage against Hillarys emails but it does bring up a good point about the emails. Take a look at this article about a judge today that ruled the newest batch of emails has to remain under wraps until after the election. Why is that? And why, as all of you believe she has done no wrong, did all of her people first get immunity from the DOJ and then claim the 5th Amend. in the hearings? ALL HAVE. Why do they do that if they and Hillary have done nothing wrong?
    http://www.redflagnews.com/headlines-2016/corrupt-judge-rules-to-keep-hillary-emails-hidden-from-voters-until-after-election-day

    Who is the corrupt person here? All you can say about Trump is that he argued with a contractor over a payment? Compared to THIS?

    You always say she has done nothing wrong but what about this? Huma leaves classified documents on the seat her car and leaves. Lets pretend its not against the law (which it is). Wouldnt you fire such a person? But she can say, “oh sorry” and that absolves her and Hillary? And not even to mention she may not even have the clearance level to hold such documents?
    http://dailycaller.com/2016/08/22/emails-huma-abedin-left-classified-material-unsecured-in-the-front-seat-of-her-car/

    • Sorry Boxie, but right now, the building contractors are numbered in the dozens. NOT one. Dozens. In fact, Trump doesn’t dare set foot in NJ unless he wants to wear a cement coat and become a bridge support like Jimmy Hoffa.

      As for those emails, Why isn’t Trey Gowdy in jail for editing them? He falsified evidence in a federal investigation. That’s a crime for anyone.

      You can keep calling Hillary a criminal, but she is not the one with a $22 million FinCEN fine for money laundering. She is NOT the one who stiffed hotel and casino workers. She is NOT the one who lied about Melania being married to him so he could rush her immigration papers through INS.

      • Right now we have a congress whose members swore on the Bible to uphold the Constitution of the United States and defend it from all enemies. They continue to violate the Constitution and their supporters are worried about e-mails that have not proven anything yet.

      • Said? You can hear a post? My but don’t you have a suck up agenda? Do you always suck up to your own sleazy inmates in prison or does Bubba stand behind you while he pulls your puppet strings?

          • rofl….True…Trying to communicate with the mentally unhinged is dangerous territory. They speak in circles and know it isn’t possible for sane and rational people to make sense of their bizarre mental illnesses.

            That’s how I saw Trump last night. A dangerously unhinged man trying to make the world believe insanity is the new normal…rofl.

          • I couldn’t get the visual out of my mind when Rubio kept drinking water, and Trump blasted him for it and then does the same thing. But isn’t that what Trump is all about doing what he blames others of doing.

          • It’s common knowledge that constant thirst is one of the first signs of diabetes. I know this because one of the women I worked with did the same thing. She’d either run for a glass of water or run to the bathroom the frequency with which was about every five or ten minutes.

            Trump has some very serious health problems. His doctor is a joke. No doctor I know has ever taken 5 minutes as Trump’s doctor claimed, to write his medical report.

            But, these fast reports all seem to come from the Trump Bible. In the last debate, Trump said he took five minutes to write his financial report. Either he is bankrupt or he is Superman. He’d have you believe he is Superman.

          • The not being able to breath through his nose, what brings this on? He has to gasp for air after every lie. (sentence)

          • Well, it is true that in his early middle age, he hung out in some of Manhattan’s poshest clubs where coke was as much a part of the menus as Champagne. He was actually pretty amusing trying to break into Blue Nose society with the likes of the rich debutante daughters and sons of the wealthy in NY’s Knickerbocker society back then.

            Snorting coke in $500 silk suits and Cassini and Balenciaga gowns was considered initiation into the “In Crowd.” As for Trump, his favorite hangout was the McAfee NJ Playboy Mansion where he and his idol of machismo, Hugh Hefner, held their orgies.

            There was also another very very sexually deviant rumor that was going around back then. The oh so rich with their Long Island Mansions held those Turkish Style sex rituals and orgies for exclusive “members” of the upper crust and wealthy society. Where do you think Stanley Kubrick got the idea for that blacked out scene in “Eyes Wide Shut?” roflmao

          • If you’ve seen Trump’s doctor, he looks to me like something that just left a Neanderthal cave. If he has a medical license, I’d love to know who would trust a “doctor” like him.

    • Oh no, we can say a lot more about Trump, like how he defrauded vets with his bogus university, how he has ties and business dealings with communist & Arab countries, how he lust and rapes women, how he thinks America can be run equivalent to the mafia world. How he uses his campaign funds as a money making machine for his family, how he uses his Foundation Funds as a slush fund for his lifestyle. You guys say Hillary can lie for 30 minutes straight, Trump can lie for 30 DAYS straight. You ask who is the corrupt person, I say who has two pending court cases for fraud and racketeering. You want to put Hillary in jail for petty lies while you want to put Trump on a pedestal for being a grand thief. Hillary can say she is sorry when she makes mistakes, Trump has no balls to say his is sorry when he is dead wrong, caught with his pants down.

    • You don’t suppose the GOP witch hunt in Congress had anything to do with people taking the 5th? Let us know when they find the 22 million emails deleted from the RNC server during the BUSH and Rove years.
      The dailycaller? Find a credible site and come back.

    • You are failing spectacularly the test of false equivalence.

      Clinton:
      – Benghazi: Investigated 8 times. No court appearances.
      – Emails: Investigated by FBI, poor judgement but no court appearances.
      – Clinton Foundation: Highly rated, or highest rated, charity by multiple external review groups, no charges of corruption or illegal spending found substantiated. No charges.

      Trump:
      – Business in General: 3500 Law suits to date in court… one for every 3 days he’s been in business. Regularly refuses to pay contractors (there are literally hundreds of people he has done this to) and threatens legal action if they try to sue him… obviously the source of at least some of the 3500 Law Suits.
      – Rape: Actually in court being sued for rape by two different women.
      – Trump University: Actually in court for Trump University as a con to screw over students who were promised the chance to learn “Trump’s method of making money”.
      – Trump Foundation: Almost certain to face charges and fines for Trump Foundation illegal spending, bribery (less likely, but possible), re-gifting other people’s charity, and paying his own legal expenses out of his charity for other businesses.

      So… Box. Who is the corrupt person here, again?

    • Oh, here we go with the Email fetish.

      Box, if you need to get excitement by dredging up emails being hacked, I can get you a magazine with glossy pictures of email servers in pastel colors, with Hillary’s name stamped on each one. Give me your email address and I’ll have Donald send you some of his copies.

    • I think it’s the same reason the Judge Curiel, game Trump time on his court appearing on Racketeering. Because they very well know that this is a witch hunt, and don’t want to be a part of it. Trump is the CORRUPT person, why can’t you see that? Box I told you what we can say yesterday, did you not read my response to you, are just going to ignore FACTS. Why do you harp on every move that democrats make and are blind to the massive corruption your party does on daily basis? Do you honestly think we appreciate your lies? Do you think we honestly care that you are to dumb to know the difference?

  15. The best reason to vote Trump is to completely destroy the GOP. That way, there might be a real political revolution in the USA in 2020.

    • It won’t destroy the GOP. I was a Republican for 33 years. Republican men are meanspirited, bossy, overbearing bullies who sit day after day coming up with new ideas to FORCE us into their way of thinking. I do believe that’s called, “Mind Control” by any other name.

      It’s no coincidence that Reagan is remembered as the Star Wars president. To this very day the ultra right wing arm of the GOP still believes their FORCE is ON us.

      • Yeah Eleanor. I’m sure you were a Republican, just like you were a famous author, and captain of a starship. Is it impossible for a liberal to utter a true statement? Doubtful.

        • Yeah Kep, I was a Republican. You can get the proof from the NJ Voter registry if you are such a male gender bias moron.

          As for famous author. I don’t claim fame in anything I do. But you? You ARE famous…for BS.

          Here are the ISBN #s of my 2 published books, published by then new publisher, PublishAmerica, who I no longer present manuscripts to and I believe may be defunct:
          Barrow House was published in 2010 with the ISBN#978-1-4512-3412-1 and The House at the End of Langdon Road was published in 2011 with the ISBN#978-1-4626-6096-4…A book only gets an ISBN number if it has a publisher, who owns these numbers.

          So jerk off….You can doubt all you like. Men like you have NO BALLS and can’t find jobs and live in your McMommy’s basement.

        • Hey Kep – I believe her. Over the years the GOP has lost its bearings, it used to be the party of the middle class – but that was way back in history. They’ve become the party of big business and the 1 percenters. And most of them are still so angry about being found guilty of the Watergate burglary and it having cost Nixon to resign (rather that face impeachment) that all they can do today is spread lie, after lie, after lie and file lawsuit after lawsuit to try to get vengence on their nemesis; which happens to be anyone and everyone that is a Democrat.

          • Kep loves bullies. Kep loves dictators. Kep loves anything puffs his ego and makes him think he controls the world. What do you do with nuts like him/her?

          • Kep is just another backward person who has not experienced diversity in thought and people. If you were in a discussion group with him or her, they would be boring. If, face to face, you asked them to produce their source for information, they would immediately take refuge in “I don’t discuss politics” or try to shout over you. Trump is who they are.

        • And the only reason you can say “it impossible for a liberal to utter a true statement” is because you live in the gutter and can’t watch TV. Trump lies 75% of the time, while the republicans have to change policies and laws in order to win.

          • This regime, especially Hillary, has not uttered a true statement since it was placed in power. Hillary hasn’t told the truth in decades.

          • kep, you must be from another country, if you were from here you would know that’s a lie, unless you are programmed.

          • Well it’s good that you can put up with what you call our “stupidity”, we call it common sense. We can’t stomach the vulgarity on republican hate sites.

          • If you wish to find hate, bigotry, and disinformation, you need not look any further than this site. All this group of no nothing regular posters does is congratulate each other on how well each repeats the daily propaganda that the regime feeds you. Morons.

          • The only time you find vulgarity is when AG is spewing, and you also say “well said” you Idiot. You don’t like it go else where, you are free to roam else where.

      • When Boris Nemtsov was interviewed by the travel TV host, Anthony Bourdain, Putin went bananas. Nemtsov was shot to death. And like Trump, Putin the coward refused to admit HE had Nemtsov shot for making what Putin considered “disparaging” remarks about Putin’s leadership.

        I watched that interview with Bourdain and Nemtsov. The disparaging remark Nemtsov said? “Russians are always involved in revolution when leadership proves to be too oppressive for Russians to endure.”

        At the end of this program, Bourdain announced that shortly after their interview, Nemtsov was shot.

        If you noticed last night in the debate, NOT ONCE did Trump say anything remotely negative about Putin. But then, he doesn’t want us to know who is has business deals with?

      • If there’s anything left of this country if Trump is elected!!! He’ll start WWIII, and nuke everyone, and we’ll get the brunt of it in the end!! And he’ll just stand there and say “oh, I didn’t mean that!!!”

  16. I’m so happy that I wasn’t the only one who didn’t miss Trump’s little quip about being smart in his not paying taxes.
    Yes I’m sure that that an audit is being done, probably by his tax lawyers.
    Now I can only hope that all of the Wall Street protesters who hate Clinton will get what they would be contributing to, should they decide to stay home or vote on a third party candidate.
    This man is as bad or worst as the folks they protest against.
    I’m so hoping that this man who talks a good game against the TPP and NAFTA will be called on his own business dealing overseas.
    If he is so concerned about American jobs, why doesn’t he have his products made in America.
    It wasn’t brought up, but Trump has indicated that he has no problem with the minimum wage as it stands now.
    And based on his outrage about making businesses pay more in taxes, I have to wonder how many of his supporter feel about what type of jobs they might be getting if he does indeed manage to make more jobs accessible to American workers.
    The folks complaining about lack of jobs are not talking about Walmart type of jobs but jobs paying $20 or more an hour.
    How will Trump make sure those type of jobs become available to those who don’t have the skill and education to acquire them?
    Most jobs don’t have on-the-job training anymore unless there is some technical training or skills to back them up.
    Sadly, most of Trump supporter are only hearing what they want to hear and NOT what Trump is really saying.
    Say what you want about Clinton, but she didn’t have goad Trump too much into showing his hand. He did so all on his own with his need to boast.

    • Reagan cut taxes to the wealthiest and the big corporations….that’s what caused the problems that we have been having with our economy since then! Trump just wants to do more of the same…..trickle down DIDN’T WORK!!! Not sure why he or his minions don’t understand that. Companies will NOT use the extra money to hire new employees…..they’ll use it to pay themselves big salaries and to pay their shareholders!!! How stupid is that? Unfortunately, the Trumpsters don’t seem to realize this…..either that, or they weren’t around when Reagan was doing his damage!

      • Cheney and his boy, cut taxes to the wealthy and said trickle down would create jobs. We were almost in a depression when the kid left office. Trickle down does not create jobs. Economy is run on the principle that the law of supply is demand. That means the customer drives the economy and if the customer does not have a good job, he cannot demand goods and services.

        • Definitely…..when I heard Trump talk about “his” plan, it was just a reiteration of what Reagan and GWB did, which is what caused the recession to begin with! As I mentioned, the corporations and CEO’s won’t use the money to hire more people…..they’ll use it to pay themselves those big bonuses and pay the shareholders. Their excuse will be that people aren’t buying their products so they have to cut back….the reason for this is because a lot of people are either no longer working, have retired, or just plain aren’t making enough money at their jobs to afford to purchase many consumer goods. What I don’t understand is why they can’t figure out that paying their people better salaries means that these same people will be able to spend more on consumer goods. If people have more money to spend on consumer goods…..it means that corporations make more money! It’s a very simple and logical thing, but apparently, Trump and corporations just don’t see the logic in it! All they care about is profits and money to put in their own pockets and the pockets of their shareholders! They can’t see that they’d do better if they paid their employees better so that they had money to spend on many items that are currently being manufactured!!! The bottom line is that CEO’s and shareholders can only make SO much money before they hit a plateau. They either have to start paying their employees more money so they can afford to buy these goods or the corporation ends up going out of business and EVERYONE suffers!

    • I just finished a book by Jack McConnell, called “Trumped.” Trump pays outrageous sums of money to people to keep him out of trouble, but pays the bare minimum to those whose labors make him rich. He doesn’t even tip.

  17. Btw– I don’t care for either of your candidates, but it’s pretty useless to whine that the guy utilizes each & every possible loophole in the US tax system. The US IRS is about the most corrupt entity out there right now- to the point that via FATCA (signed by Obama) they are out to try to yank revenue from the low-middle income US folks living & working overseas through extortion of their banks (claiming they’re after “tax cheats”- yeah, right-o)….Yep, vote Trump in, kill the festering GOP, & WORK to fix your democracy. HRC? More of the same & an even faster downhill with TPP & her next war (wouldn’t surprise me to see her reinstate the draft when no one is willing to go).

    • So you think not paying taxes is fine and dandy do you? Just who do you think SHOULD bear the burden of the education your parents paid for? You represent all that has gone so wrong with the Selfie Daycare Generation. Too lazy to be gainfully employed, too convinced that you and only you have ALL the answers.

      Trump is as, Michael Bloomberg stated, a “dangerous demogogue.”

      Hillary will be president whether slugs like you like that or not. You will be outvoted by the majority of working class Americans who know that your ideas of laying around on your butt all day while everyone else in is the trenches gainfully employed is why Hillary WILL be president. Dream on teenage king.

      • Tis moi kind of told you who he or she is. The government is something for we shills to support. I wish they would stay off the roads, we build with our taxes.

  18. Tis Moi – right off the bat goes blathering about his King Drump. Honestly I doubt that there are truly so many ignorant people leaving those ridiculous pro-Trumpty-Dumpty comments. I’m pretty sure most of them are Russian Trolls that Russia is using to try to influence our presidential elections.
    And honestly, Hillary came out on top of last night’s debate, she won it hands down. The Trumpster look like the con-artist, flim-flam man that he really is. The move we see of him the worse he looks and the dumber he sounds.

  19. I think the one thing that bothered me about Trump’s statements in his debate was his constant reference to making our allies “pay.” According to Trump, we shouldn’t ever offer any unified assistance to any country unless there is a price tag.

    You can just imagine what our allies at this time are thinking. How dangerous is it for Trump to make such a statement? And, if he thinks ISIS is going to be so easy to defeat, why did he avoid Viet Nam claiming he had a “sore foot?”

  20. Trump’s hollow and peevish performance is the perfect model for how NOT to present one’s self in a debate. Rather than try to rehabilitate his sagging image by displaying a calm and reasonable person who has some inking of how the real world works in geopolitical terms, he stubbornly approaches the position as though the Presidency is a business opportunity to be taken over in hostile take-over bid.

    He purposefully chose to be boorish, insisted on not preparing himself, and in the end had to fall back on a perfectly rehearsed churlish nature.

    His performance should be included as a chapter in textbooks for high school and college students in Public Speaking and Ethics classes.

    • Can you imagine if Trump was being graded as if he was a student in a Public Speaking and Ethics class? I can only speak from my experience with speech teachers/coaches and I know he would not only have failed miserably but would have got a very stern lecture. Also, I don’t know if you have seen David Fahrenthold’s latest report concerning the Trump Foundation and taxes. I wrote a brief summary of it but I see that at least some cable news stations are starting to report it. It is typical Trump.

      • I’m praying that the news media are starting to wake up and realize that they have been pandering to Trump for far too long, and letting him get off easy. I sincerely hope they will disregard his typical whining about how the media is so biased and prejudiced towards him – oh boo hoo. If Hillary said that about Faux News or Breitbart all the Trumpets would howl and call her a liar and a cry baby.
        Enjoyed the Fahrenthold’s report, great to see someone doing their homework. 🙂

        • We need more people like David Fahrenthold in the media. He has done outstanding work despite being stonewalled and worse by team Trump. They hate him. Boris Epshteyn was interviewed earlier trashing him but offering no proof that anything that had been reported was wrong other than taking Epshteyn’s word for it. I wouldn’t take Epshteyn’s word for anything. Show us the tax returns and documentary evidence to prove any of the reporting was wrong.

      • I took debate in high school. He violated so many codes of debate he would have an F-. Starting with not having facts to back up his claims. Thousands is not a number unless it is how many thousands and where the information came from. Even his supposed source, Sean Hannity, Hannity does not remember Trump saying anything about the Iraq war to him. Those clips are out there for people to look at and they will.

        • During at least one of his rallies today he repeated his lie that he opposed going to war in Iraq and asked his crowd if they believed him. Of course they screamed yes they believed him. Sean Hannity has said that his show is an entertainment program, not a news program. Sean recently appeared in a campaign ad for Trump. He is not a credible witness.
          It seems Trump’s primary source for most of his knowledge are many people as in many people say…………..
          One debate coach/teacher I had would have been angry if someone had done as awful as he did and would have reprimanded them severely.

          • We were forfeited points for every error, such as using “they say” as a resource or speaking when it was the other person’s turn. To challenge the moderator was sudden death. Then I began my education to be a technical writer. Technical writing is just the facts and only the facts. You can imagine how stupid these trolls sound to me.

          • You think logically based on demonstrably established facts. When you attempt to have a legitimate debate on issues with the trolls, you can toss your logical analysis out the window. They lie, misstate facts, deflect the argument to some attack on Hillary, engage in ad hominem attacks, and seem totally divorced from reality. I feel your pain.

          • I’m not sure if they learned their debating skills from him or if he learned from them. They are all in the same deplorable basket.

          • Yes it is. Speaking of deplorables,I came across an article you may be interested in. It is entitled “A neuroscientist explains what may be wrong with Trump supporters brains” The link is httpL://www.rawstory.com/2016/08/a-neuroscentist-explains-what-may-be-wrong-with-trump-supporters-brains

          • Thanks, Jon, will take a look at it. IT just boggles my mind that people, even people with average intelligence, can STILL want to vote for this guy! He’s many times WORSE than anything they’ve said about Hillary! It just astounds me

          • No problem….I wrote the link down without the L and I’ll go through the internet and find it there. Thanks….I’m sure it’ll be eye-opening to say the least!

          • I tried to open this, but it wouldn’t come up. I’ll try it on my own. I think there’s an extra letter after the http that is causing the problem. What just astounds me is that even people with average intelligence are still voting for this idiot! He’s so much worse than anything they’ve said about Hillary….it just boggles my mind!

          • I tried to send you a reply but can’t find it. I hope you got it but in case you didn’t, I will repeat it. I made a typo and put an L behind the http I am sorry. I have edited it to remove the L

          • I got it, but I had written down the link that you gave me, and I will go on the internet and put it in so that the link pops up.

  21. He’s so smart he was dumb enough to not only admit he’s a criminal for tax evasion but he also admitted to being a crooked businessman by stiffing people who worked for him yet Hillary is the crooked one. Where are the brains of his supporters? Who in their right mind would vote for a sniveling, snorting, crooked businessman with a runny nose and 6 bankrupcies?

    • I’m not sure about the tax evasion comment, but you’re right about his supporters. With everyone saying what a dirt bag the guy is, his indefensible lies, his arrogance and plain old snotty attitude he manages to hang onto his fan base. His comment about being “Smart” by not paying taxes will no doubt require the assistance of an interpreter – “Well, that’s not what he meant”, or “it was taken out of context”……kind of like the help Giuliani needed after he claimed that there were “NO ACTS OF TERRORISM COMMITTED WHILE DUBBAHUE WAS PRESIDENT”……” What Mr. Giuliani meant was SINCE 9/11″ they claimed. It’s absolutely amazing. You may hear that he’ll be different when he’s in office and I keep thinking back to the primaries and the story Trump used while trying to make a point about Cruz. He told about an old lady who found a snake and took it in, nursed it back to health and then it bit her. When the old woman asked as she was dying “Why did you bite me?”, the snake replied “You knew what I was when you took me in”. That’s the Donald. A snake.

    • Republicans have a real aversion to facts. If you try to show them reality their brains snap shut. Trump has also tickled all the right GOP erogenous zones; misogyny, racism, bigotry, homophobia, religious intolerance, etc. They can’t resist him. T rump is like a hit of GOP meth!

    • When Hillary mentioned those people who gave time, materials, and services to him, he defended his bankruptcies by saying he did not break the law that it was there to help people like him. He doesn’t give a fig about those companies who still had to meet payroll and costs.

      • Yet, his followers seem to think that he’s there to help them….he has NO concept of how to help the poor and middle class and only cares about the top 1% and how to help them. He uses all sorts of invalid excuses as to why giving more money to corporations and the wealthy will “trickle down” to the middle class. It didn’t work for Reagan or GWB….it ain’t going to work this time either! We don’t need another recession, and that’s exactly what will happen if he gets into the Oval Office.

        • J. Michael Diehl is a retired, small business owner. His business for many decades was selling instruments out of his Freehold Music Center in Freehold, New Jersey. His modest clientele included individuals, schools and local organizations. In 1989 Mr. Diehl was overjoyed to get a $100,000 contract from Donald Trump. It was one of the biggest sales Diehl’s business had ever made. The deal was for several grand and upright pianos, delivered in tuned, working order to Trump’s brand new Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City. The money owed to Diehl would be paid within 90 days of delivery.
          I asked my lawyer if I should ask for payment upfront, and he laughed. “It’s Donald Trump!” he told me. “He’s got lots of money.”
          Of course, when Mr. Diehl asked for his money, a story began that we have heard more and more from people who have had business “dealings” with the Donald.
          But when I requested payment, the Trump corporation hemmed and hawed. Its executives avoided my calls and crafted excuses. After a couple of months, I got a letter telling me that the casino was short on funds. They would pay 70 percent of what they owed me. There was no negotiating. I didn’t know what to do — I couldn’t afford to sue the Trump corporation, and I needed money to pay my piano suppliers. So I took the $70,000.
          Losing $30,000 was a big hit to me and my family. The profit from Trump was meant to be a big part of my salary for the year. So I made much less. There was no money to help grow my business. I had less pianos in the showroom and a smaller advertising budget. Because of Trump, my store stagnated for a couple of years. It made me feel really bad, like I’d been taken advantage of. I was embarrassed.
          Diehl decided to write this op-ed because he was furious when he heard Trump defend the well-grounded accusation that he is a shitty person with the basest of business ethics. Right now there is a large portion of the Republican Party—let’s call it 99.9 percent—who are still under the delusion that “It’s Donald Trump! He’s got lots of money” means anything worth a damn.
          Here’s a clip reminding you of how Donald Trump made his (probably a lot less than) “billions.”

  22. Not only did Trump admit not paying taxes and continues to refuse to release tax returns not subject to his alleged audit, it appears that Trump has been using Trump Foundation to evade paying taxes and to commit tax fraud. David Fahrenthold of the Washington Post has been looking into why and how the Trump Foundation continues to operate when Trump has not contributed any money himself since 2008. The answer appears to be he is directing money owed to him to his Trump Foundation. Comedy Central, NBC, the WWE operated by Vince McMahon, and Richard Ebers who bought goods and services, including tickets, from Trump or his businesses.
    Approximately $2.3 million was given to his Foundation from companies that owed Trump or his businesses money but were instructed to pay Trump’s tax-exempt Foundation instead. Ebers was instructed to pay the Foundation instead of Trump or his businesses. Those payments totaled nearly $1.9 million. Comedy Central made a gift to the Foundation for $400,000 which it owed Trump for his appearance fee for his 2011 “roast.” The payments by Ebers and Comedy Central account for about 1/2 the money given to the Trump Foundation since 2008.
    Directing money owed to him or his businesses to be paid to the Trump Foundation required him to report that money as income and pay taxes on that income. Trump refuses to release his tax records. When contacted about the tax issue his minion Boris Epshteyn claimed nothing like that had happened. When confronted with proof Trump was on tape bragging about the Comedy Central payment Epshteyn acknowledged that but refused to comment on any others.
    When Trump was asked about whether his Foundation was following all applicable charitable rules and laws, he said, “Well, I hope so. I mean my lawyers do it.” The Trump Foundation has no paid staff. The Foundation last reported spending $53 in 2010 for legal fees. For the last 24 years it reported only spending $211 in legal expenses.
    Combined with the Foundation using money to bribe Fl AG Pam Bondi, buying 2 portraits of Trump, a Tim Tebow football helmet, and spending $258,000 to settle claims involving his businesses makes the Trump Foundation appear to be nothing more than a vehicle used to evade paying taxes.

    • T rump should have been sharing a cell with Bernie Madoff long ago. The reason he isn’t can be blamed on the GOP, a wholly owned subsidiary of Wall Street and the greedy 1% who don’t want to pay taxes to support America. How? The House and Senate control America’s checkbook. They short government agencies such as the IRS on purpose. Lack of a reasonable operating budget means the IRS does not have the ability or manpower to investigate criminals such as T rump, his cronies, and large corporations who spend millions on corrupt politicians, lawyers, and tax accountants to hide their wealth. It takes resources to follow the money trail and the GOP makes sure federal agencies such as the IRS don’t have those resources.

      • And then, sadly, the GOP spends millions upon millions of taxpayers money filing lawsuit after lawsuit ad nauseam trying to pin Hillary with their lies and unfounded consipiracy theories. It was a huge waste of time, resources and money.

        • “party of fiscal responsibility.” They take over long vacations on our dollar. They receive lots of perks on our dollar and they hold dozens of hearings on our dollar.

      • Whoever controls the money controls the outcome. I have had a 1st hand look at it on the state level. The Republicans reduce money for key services thereby making those services either impossible or very difficult to access while substantially increasing the burden on those whose duty it is to provide those services. Then they grandstand and tell the public what a great job they are doing and brag about how much money they claim to be saving taxpayers. Unfortunately many voters drink it up like Flint, MI water not realizing they have been poisoned until the damage is done.

      • What about it? The fact that every charity watchdog group in the world has given it their highest ratings? the fact that it has provided relief to millions upon millions of people around the globe? The fact that the Clintons don’t receive any salaries from it? Please proceed, governor…

        • Yeah, despite the fact that the IRS has said on many occasions that he can release these even if they are under audit…..but, he keeps glossing over this and saying his “attorneys” said he couldn’t release them. What is he hiding…..I have the same questions that Hillary has about that! We, as a people, need to know if we want this person running our country!!

          • So Why don’t you ask Hillary why she deleted classified documents after they were subject to a congressional subpoena?

          • Again, you can’t answer the question, so you deflect!! Did you learn that from your master, the Trumpster? He seems to do it very well!

          • Actually,I won’t answer it. I have no control over Donald. His business is his business. Hillary’s behavior as secretary of state is EVERY Americans business. I will ask trump to come clean just as soon as she does.

      • We can. It is a worldwide charity organization that is helping teach farmers, in Africa, to buy seed, plant and market their crops. They provide clean water and nutrition to children that the pro-lifers don’t. 87% of their intake goes to charity. Their travel expenses and teaching expenses are 5% They are not a grant organization. Since they are worldwide, it is not unusual for wealthy contributors from foreign countries. This information comes from Charity Watch and not from Brietbart or Newsmax or the tea party.

        • Can we say anything about the Trump Foundation paying out thousands of dollars for Trump’s legal fees….which is ALSO illegal! Not sure how you can justify those as donations to charities!

          • Let’s talk about the many organizations that received promises of donations from the Trump Foundation and are still waiting for them! As for Haiti, the Clinton Foundation has done much for Haiti and many other countries, but you wouldn’t know that because you haven’t bothered to check, have you?

          • No, and the state of New York has sanctioned him against any requests for donations in the state! They are investigating him as well as the U.S. Government.

          • Apparently, he failed to register as a valid charity and provide the necessary paperwork/reports that are required by the State of New York. So, now, they’ve put the kibosh on him requesting ANY donations from ANYONE in the State (including Guiliani)!

          • Yes I can Haiti,: ” In Africa, our work focuses on strengthening health systems and expanding access to … farmers have already planted more than 2.6 million trees, sequestering more than 200,000 tons of CO2. … $25 helps to offset 2.5 tons of CO2 emissions”

  23. On the other end of the spectrum, I have no doubt the Democratic Party just Loves & Embraces having to pay every last penny they can think to pay in Taxes, especially to Cover the Cost of “Murdering our Minority Babies especially by Abortion”. If Obamacare hadn’t of brought down the company I worked for since 1987, I would still be forced to continue Paying the IRS to kill babies like the rest of the Democrats & especially Hillary demands still today, instead of enjoying Retirement. Perhaps I should send her/them a Thank You note? Ya think? “Thank you Hillary & Obama for releasing me from my job and virtually destroying yet another Very Large Company/Business in America so that I would no longer be FORCED to support and pay for Murdering a single extra abortion for you and Planned Parenthood to then sell the last remaining cells & organs to the highest bidders to make even more money in addition to the rest you are handing to them. Well, at least it’s not like they are sending money to Iran to destroy us and Israel or anything like that. Oh wait! They are doing that too. Enjoy your sweet, honest, shrill shill hill as long as you can until the Honest Fact Checkers, Assange, and the last of her Lies and murderous emails are soon revealed. Inside sources tell me that they “Are-a-plenty” and extremely damning. Sweet Dreams and whatever you do, don’t give a second thought the the silent screams and cries to the babies. No doubt that won’t be a problem at all for “You guys though”, and your party. The Party of Murder! Surely God just winks and smiles right along with you. Especially if your god is very likely named Lucifer/Satan/the devil. I still Pray you will still come to your senses before it’s too late. No one deserves hell other than Satan & the fallen angels who rebelled along with Satan, that Hell was created for originally. Not a place that Hillary nor any of the rest of you should ever settle for, for all the wealth & power of this world. That decision regarding Eternity is totally within your own hands. Life and Death have been placed before you this day; Choose Life. John 3:16-17

    • Thank you for providing the ample evidence religion is a mental disease.
      As a minor note in closing I’d remind you that God supposedly looks very very dimly on “bearing false witness”. The Planned Parenthood videos that appear to have triggered your lack of sanity, have been universally declared to be doctored fakes specifically designed to falsely target that organisation.

      How do you square your support of false witness with your invisible friend, my friend?

      • Religion is not a disease–the gross and perverse misinterpretation of Religion is the disease, an example of which has been vividly demonstrated by Terry.
        Otherwise, you’re right on about the many other ways fetuses are aborted as a result of irresponsible social habits during pregnancy.

        • My morning paper had an incident in Peru, where last week a woman was doused in gasoline and burned for being a witch. Peru is predominately Catholic. Witches are a figment of religions’ imaginations.

      • It is funny that “Suffer little children, come unto me…” is not there when children are running from drug cartels in Mexico, starving in Africa, and running from violence in Syria.

      • Those videos were debumked by liberals. Margaret Sanger would be so proud of her heirs. They sure know how to make a buck and get rid of unwanted trash at the same time.

      • dpaano – That’s for sure. To bad there isn’t a way to prevent shills from trolling the internet. I realize some are brainwashed Trumpets, some are kids (or immature adults) that have fun trying to tick people off, but a lot are definitely Trolls either backed by Russia’s Putin or by Trumpty-the-dishonest !

          • Then block me. It would just make my day. Bloviating pompous know it alls like you nauseate decent people.

          • Why is it that whenever you find yourself not quite “winning,” you and your brother trolls just resort to name calling and hateful remarks. Too bad that they don’t bother most of us….and they only make you look stupider than ever!

      • People, like Terry, cry crocodile tears over a tiny dot, but refuse sanctuary to children that are being threatened in their own country. These feeling, children are here and living in deplorable conditions. So these pro-lifers are no more than hypocrites.

        • Right. Those pro-lifers are such monsters. How dare they defend helpless babies when they have been been slotted for execution by the powers that be?

          • The day you actually give birth is the day that you can talk about abortions, etc.! You have NO idea what goes on when a mother has to make that kind of a decision, so give it up!

          • Here it comes. Play the old trusted woman card. Actually I talked to my ex sister in law when after her abortion at 14 years old in 1973, she felt like a murderer for killing her baby. I can never experience the tragedy of having an abortion but if you think the woman is the only victim in these tragedies then you are too inexperienced to comment. If I met you face to face you would feel the back of my hand for your callousness and inhumanity.

          • They fetuses, definition of a baby is: a very young child, especially one newly or recently born. A baby becomes a human being, when he is born. More deaths have been caused by white supremacist then terrorist in the US, by the powers to be.!

      • It was said in the news last night that BOTH of the candidates were on stage prior to the debate and the microphones were adjusted according to their needs. I’m sure no one got on stage and fiddled with Trump’s microphone before the debate! As for his comments about Lester Holt….of course he attempted to question Trump about his lies; that was his job. He didn’t have to question Hillary as much because she was being as truthful as possible. Yes, she did make some exaggerations on some items, but much less than Trump! I think Lester Holt did a fair and impartial job with both candidates!

        • What bull. Holt interrupted Trump 41 times and Hillary 7. He asked gotcha questions of Trump at every opportunity. You brag that Hillary won hands down. It’s obvious to anyone other than a Hillary zombie or a moron that Trump was debating two people on that stage. Throwing 100 mph grenades at Trump and lobbing softballs at Hillary is hardly impartial. And as for being the fact checker. That is Hillary’s job. Moderators moderate. At least honest ones do.

          • No bull….actually the moderators SHOULD bring it to people’s attention when something is not true! Unfortunately, Trump has lied so much more than Hillary….it’s easy to catch him on it! As for Lester Holt’s performance, I thought he did quite well….much better than Lauer (of course, with Lauer, he was giving Trump the advantage, so no whining about that debate, huh?)! Hillary fact checked Trump very well on several occasions!!! And, by the way, Trump interrupted Hillary 51 times…..much more than Holt interrupted Trump. Holt only interrupted Trump to tell him that his time was up, but Trump just kept talking over him! What do you think a moderator is there for? He’s supposed to keep everyone on message and within the time frames given! Face it, your guy looked like an idiot up there…..it had NOTHING to do with the moderator, the microphone, or anything else!!!

          • Of course he out did Lauer. Lauer actually asked Hillary as many relevant questions as he asked Trump. We all know that is left wing blasphemy. Any lefty “moderator” worth his salary knows you ask loaded questions of the enemy and give your side the advantage. It’s funny. jmprint thinks the mike thing is a big deal and you don’t. I thought you liberals stuck together. PS;Do you know the difference between a dynamic microphone and a condenser microphone?

          • Oh please Daniel, you guys are sorry losers, he lost, kept taking breathes through his mouth because his nose was malfunctioning. He doesn’t even know what the triad is.

  24. So where’s poor little Otto and Aglanderp and the other mini-brained racist sexist Trump apologists? Crying into their widdle pillows?

    Imagine our incredible sadness that all the things we had been explaining to them are turning out to be true….
    But even better…. will slowly and excruciatingly be demonstrated and drawn out until Nov.

    Yay?

      • I think they’re hiding because they have nothing to say…..all their bravado has taken a big hit!!! I was reading today that even Republicans were angry with Trump because he failed to prepare for the debate and made so many errors! The funniest is that he said the U.S. paid 78% of the cost for NATO….in actuality, we pay only 22% of the cost….BIG difference, Mr. Trump! He has failed to take advantage of several people in his group who are willing to help him prepare. Now he says he’s going to make mention in the next debate about Bill Clinton and his so-called affair. What in heck does that have to do with the campaign……it tells us NOTHING about Hillary’s qualifications! He keeps bringing up BS that has nothing to do with the entire campaign! We don’t care about these things….we want to hear clear, concise policies and plans…..to date, he has offered none of these. Hillary has offered a 200+ page book on her plans and how she is going to try to accomplish them. The only thing we can hope for to take back the Senate so that they don’t pull the same thing on her that they’ve pulled on President Obama!
        Secondly, he complained about the infrastructure and tried to blame President Obama and Hillary for that……apparently, he isn’t aware that his REPUBLICAN compatriots voted NO on the bill that was brought to them asking for money to repair our infrastructure….and the worst part is that it would have given millions of people jobs as well as providing safer bridges, roads, etc. Again, he has NO idea what he’s talking about and most of what he’s blaming President Obama and Hillary for are things that the current Congress has voted down!

  25. The writer apparently missed the point: Trump did NOT pay any taxes in the years for which he was forced to release his returns.

    • If true,the real question should be,
      : was it legal or illegal to avoid those taxes? It is definitely illegal to send classified information through an unsecured private email server. It is also illegal to delete emails AFTER they are under a congressional subpoena. It is also illegal to lie to congress while under oath. However,if your name is Clinton, your integrity is never questioned by your loyal lemming voters and the Democrat controlled justice department makes every excuse in the universe to give you a pass.

      • We can find out if he releases his tax, so they can be viewed, to see if it was legal or not. He has already paid penalties for non-payment.

      • Maybe you should broaden you question pool, to wit: does a successful business lose money every year for 20 years? Does a successful businessman drive his business to lose money?

        • Actually I will ask: Can someone who swindled seniors out of their life savings and homes,sold CBM secrets to China,allowed four subordinates to die for political gain and mishandled highly classified information then covered it up be trusted to be POTUS?

          • life savings? didn’t happen. (whitewater lie)
            CBM secrets? didn’t happen. (who knows where this is from)
            allowed to die? didn’t happen. (evidence showed concerted efforts to save them)
            highly classified? didn’t happen. (evidence showed most classification was after-the-fact)
            So, yeah I think so.
            Can someone with current ties to criminal enterprises in the US, who is chummy enough with a foreign dictator to ask him to post hacked communications, who has openly claimed that he abrogate signed treaties be trusted to be POTUS?

          • All true. Did happen. You leftist lemmings are so gullible. You would hire a known child killer to babysit your kids.

          • Thanks for the laugh. Name calling suggests that you’ve run out of reality.
            Have a great day.

          • Sorry;my reality tank is full. And I call em as I see em. If you don’t like being called a lemming then open your eyes. You are following your leaders over the cliff.

          • Yes you have a full tank. Some might call it “reality”, but really it’s made for bacteria to digest.
            I don’t care what you call me or anyone else. It’s a free country.
            The only cliff around is the one you’ve created in your own mind with your fevered imagination.

          • I could have called you an ostrich for sticking your head in the sand while Obama and his ilk are busy destroying America as it was meant to be. Either moniker is appropriate. If you get the president of your dreams you just might find yourself in a nightmare. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

          • You missed by three decimals. It was $916 million. But you’re right. How can a GOOD businessman lose a $billion in a year?

          • You’re right….I forgot it was a BILLION and not a MILLION….getting old and senile, I guess! Either way you look at it, it’s still not a good sign of an astute businessman!

          • The other important bit of info released from Trump’s return lists his income: about $3.5MM. How is a $10B estate created on a $3.5million income? Heavy leverage – just claim the assets and ignore the liabilities.

            He doesn’t own the properties, the banks do. If the interest rate ticks up, Trump’s empire crashes, just like it did in the 1990s.

          • That would be an interesting thing to watch, especially if he were elected (heaven forbid) to the presidency!!! He’d have to learn to live on the paltry salary of the president in lieu of all the money he takes home from his corporation (mostly taken from his Foundation, I think)!

  26. Trump says all he was doing when he filed bankruptcy 6 times was using the system, but he failed to understand that WE are the system, those that pay taxes. We end up bailing him out with our taxes.

    • If you don’t like the system then change it. You have the same options Trump has. Don’t tell me you would never declare bankruptcy if you found yourself in financial trouble. You surely would.

        • Career criminals follow a pattern of behavior as in returning to the scene of a crime. That is how I can know that Hillary will always use any position of power and authority she has to enrich herself at the expense of others. That’s why I don’t trust her.

          • Rarely does a career criminal return to the scene of a crime. You’ve been watching too much Law and Order.

            As Dorothy Rabinowitz, Executive Board Member of the Wall Street Journal, who NEVER in its history has EVER endorsed a political candidate stated, “Hillary can not now nor EVER compete with Trump for lies and corruption.”

            You don’t trust your own mother. Did she forget to toilet train you and now you can’t figure out how to flush your waste?

            You can keep insisting and insisting like all mental patients always do but you will as Rabinowitz states, not now nor EVER find Hillary guilty of a crime punishable by prison. That’s just you moron MAN opinion on steroids going off the deep end.

            But, you do realize that if Trump loses, his name will be MUD among his business associates. They’ve heard him lie as we all have and deny what we KNOW we HEARD him say in that last debate. So little boy, time for you to grow up and learn how to flush yourself. You are a WASTE!

          • Actually I know that criminals actually do sometimes return from conversations with sheriff’s deputies I play poker with. You should study a little criminal justice. You think you know everything because most liberals are puffed up know it all’s. You [like some criminals] follow a pattern of behavior that is predictable. You believe you are all knowing and all wise and have the irresistible urge to let everyone know that you are the smartest person in any room you happen to occupy. Hillary committeed high crimes that would get a president impeached and possibly tried for treason. Anyone with a three digit IQ knows that,. The fact that she is the new chosen leader of the political corruption team now in charge of the branch of government that prosecutes crimes [the executive branch] shows why she is skating for her crimes. When the fox is in charge of the hen house he gets what he wants with no repercussions. I saw Comey’s lame excuses for not prosecuting Hillary. These people can do what ever they want and they know it. The watchdogs in charge of crime prevention are the actual criminals. Do you think they are going to prosecute themselves? I don’t. Idiots like you with no moral center are the reason they get away with their crimes. You are willing to turn a blind eye to the highest forms of corruption on the planet because you are a zombie to a political party. You couldn’t care less about your own country. You are just as corrupt as they are. I am done trying to reason with you. Trying to reason with you is like a fly reasoning with a spider. You would kill me in a heartbeat if you gained from the murder. Don’t worry Elanor. You won’t hear from me again. You are a lost cause.

          • Sheriffs? I live in NJ. The only sheriffs we have in NJ are the ones who do the job of rounding up lose who don’t pay their bail bonds, issue warrants for arrest through the court demand and they are often CSIs.

            In NJ, we have LAW Enforcement Officers who are police, detectives and they are all college educated.

            Obviously, you live in one of those “backward” states where the sheriffs have fat beer guts and swagger and drawl and wear cowboys hats.

            I do know more than you. And you like all narrow minded mentally unhinged men think every word out of your mouth is law. How predictable do you plan to get?

        • He doesn’t know anything. He spouts ONLY his own pathetic opinions he hears from men just like him…dipwads who hate the idea of losing their MANhood the minute a woman becomes president.

          They know that the first woman president will not be the last and in their psychosexually immature brains, that means they’ve lost their MANhood.

          Since Michelle Obama has said she may run for the Senate, just what do you think will happen if either she or Elizabeth Warren decided to run for president? Guys like this dippy Danny will be running for the Testosterone pills to pump their flagging egos, among other body parts that are already flagging rofl.

          • OMG…..if Michelle Obama runs for the Senate…she’s DEFINITELY got my vote; same for Elizabeth running for president! The men will go absolutely crazy!!! If we worked at it for the next decade, we could have this country being totally run by women, and probably being run much better!!!

          • I know…right? Actually, there are two other highly recognized female politicians who could also be in the running, Sheila Jackson Lee and Bonnie Watson Coleman. These two women are as politically savvy and could easily fill the bill. But, the bigots will hate both. They are black.

          • Oh boy!!! That would be a DOUBLE HEADER — a female AND an African American!!! Wow…that would be a race to the finish!!!

      • Sure as soon as we get the GOP out of office, so production can go forward. The motto for the last three years has been: “working hard at stopping progress. I don;t brag about how rich, and what a good business man I am, Trumpf does.

      • We intend to change it. To something women have been after changing for years…Men like you who like you were born to rule. And now all we have to do is rip that crown off your heads and hand you the wet mop to clean up after the messes you’ve made.

    • Trump wasn’t using the system. He said back in the mid 90s when he screwed over several banks he owed money to that it was “their fault.” He blames people who expect some sense of honesty? Wow…and that shows what kind of corrupt crook he really is. So to him, it’s okay for him to steal from others because after all it’s their fault for expecting honesty.

      This lying and dishonesty was taught to him by that evil SOB Roy Cohn. Trump hated his father and had a mother like Cohn’s, cloying and money hungry and overly indulgent of her son. That’s why Trump’s father sent him to military school to try to discipline his out of control son and get him away from Mommy’s nearly incestuous relationship with her son. Don’t wonder why her son now manhandles his own daughter on a public stage.

      Trump hated his father as much as Cohn hated his. Trump, like Cohn, considered his father “weak” because they were too honest. Cohn’s father was a well respected judge run over by that battle axe wife, Dora. Trump’s Mommy had a better way. She just used her influence over her son without saying a word.

      Both Trump and Cohn are Mommies’ boys. Cohn his the fact that he was gay from Mommy but had no problem going after them using that cross dressing J. Edgar Hoover to round up anyone Cohn spitefully attacked.

      The truth about Trump is that he believes in the same ruthlessness and tyranny that Cohn did. Cohn died of AIDS in a very painful death, all alone. He’d bilked so many of his associates before his death that he had to borrow millions from Trump, his protege.

  27. I usually benefit something like $6 thousand-$8 thousand /a month for freelancing at home. So if you are eager to finish basic freelance tasks for some hours daily from ease of your home and gain decent benefit in the same time… This is a invitation for you… http://korta.nu/NDe

  28. So effing what Trump didn’t pay any taxes. I’ll bet that all you lunatics who are whining about this jump up and down every April 15th BEGGING to pay more taxes, yes? Oh wait, don’t you really use all the available and legal loopholes to reduce your tax burden? Why yes, of course that more intelligent people are going to follow the law(s) provided, by whom you ask? Oh, the very same government Clinton spent 8 years as a Senator. Did she sponsor any Bills to change the tax codes to reduce the write-offs so this don’t happen…..NOOOOO.

    Freaking hypocrits every damn one of you lunatic liberal scum

    • So a successful business makes no profit, in your mind? A successful businessman loses money in his business, in your mind?
      If he pays no taxes, then he’s a TAKER, you know, a LOSER.

  29. you know this very well could be DONNY DUMPS head problem >>Bipolar disorder—the larger condition that includes bipolar depression—is a lifelong, or chronic, illness. It’s a condition that affects the brain in a way that can cause extreme mood swings that vary in length. People with bipolar disorder can go from mania (the “highs”)—feeling euphoric or revved up and irritable—to depression (the “lows”)—feeling down or hopeless. These highs and lows are called “episodes.” . and other things thy feel are like every one is against them and always on the defense . now the DUMPSTER might have RUDY JUDY & NUKE THE BOMB GINGAFF help him get ready for the next debate 9 wife’s between the 3 stooge’s THE DUMPSTER beat rape and rips a patch of hair out of her head , RUDY JUDY throw’s his wife and 2 kids out of the house on the street when she catches him . and the NUKE THE BOMB GINGAFF I cant see him having one wife let alone 3 he looks and thinks talks like as big POS as the other pair swinging

  30. Trump not paying federal taxes? Gee I wonder if that has anything to do with the laws of this country.Laws that the special interest lobbyists promoted to our elected leaders Laws then passed by crooked Hillary and her butt buddies in Washington DC. let me refresh your memories GE a company with any number of corporate identities,made in excess of multiple Billions of dollars annually and they pay NO TAXES!!! These thousands and thousands of tax papers allow lots and lot’s of loop holes and exception’s, for those who understand and run “Big Business ventures” So get over yourself’s grow up and separate facts from fiction. Trump did nothing wrong period end of this stupid story.Now lets move onto the CLINTON”S when they left the White House,Hillary said they were broke,now in less than 8 years they amassed a fortune in excess of 2 hundred million and counting .lets try and figure that one out as they certainly didn’t have jobs that paid that well. What they did have however is the Clinton Foundation a slush fund that funneled foreign country donations, through Canada,where it was broken up,and then re-routed to the their Foundation here.So folks forget about Trumps business savvy and lets look at crooked Hillary’s many deceptions on many many front’s. Since she left school and defended a rapist,got him off the hook, and left a small girl a forever ruined life.Worse she laughed about that victory.She’s been laughing ever since with all of her slight of hand crapolla,and misdirection and lies to the American taxpayers.
