    He is lying that the IRS prevents him from releasing them. He can produce his tax returns at any time, audit or no audit. He just refuses to do so.

    Fact Check: Trump on releasing his tax returns after IRS audit“I don’t mind releasing. I’m under a routine audit, and it’ll be released.” –Donald Trump


    THE FACT CHECKER | Trump cites an Internal Revenue Service audit as his justification for not releasing his federal income tax returns, butt the audit does not prohibit from releasing the returns. Richard Nixon, who started the tradition of presidents and presidential candidates releasing their returns, did so in the middle of an audit.

    I don't like all Trumps policies the removal of wall street restrictions is one of them . But what I do like is he is keeping his promises and is doing what he said he would.
    Did he divest from all his companies yet?
    Oh yes, also did he release his tax returns yet?
    Is the audit done yet ? You hear the same **** over and over from his haters yawn . And yes he did hand over control of his companies which he did not need to do . Haters wash rinse repeat.
    This was very interesting. Don't they usually just take in and report on leaked information. To me calling out for it seems to be a big jump over some ethical line.

    WikiLeaks issues Twitter plea for copy of Donald Trump’s tax returns

    On Sunday, WikiLeaks tweeted that

    “Trump’s breach of promise over the release of his tax returns is even more gratuitous than Clinton concealing her Goldman Sachs transcripts.”

    The organization also asked people to leak the documents.

    “The business empire built by President-Elect Trump over the years is massive, not dissimilar to the fortunes of Nelson Rockefeller when he became vice president,” said Sherri Dillon, a lawyer with the firm Morgan Lewis. “At that time, no one was so concerned,” Dillon added.

    That’s simply not true, though. An examination of the historical record reveals that policymakers in 1974 were very concerned about the possibility that Rockefeller’s vast holdings could present a conflict of interest – similar to the concern many are now voicing about Mr. Trump.
    The way Rockefeller responded to the concerns, however, sets him apart from the current president-elect.
    When Gerald Ford nominated Rockefeller after Watergate and the resignation of Richard Nixon, the would-be veep submitted to four months of intense hearings on Capitol Hill to assure lawmakers that he would serve the country’s interests, not his own. On September 22, 1974, Nevada Democrat and Rules Committee Chairman Sen. Cannon sat down with “Face the Nation” to discuss Rockefeller’s nomination and the questions his committee would pose to Rockefeller.

    As to the audit excuse:

    Donald Trump returned to a familiar excuse for not releasing his tax returns Monday night: He is under a “routine audit.” But the IRS has said that nothing precludes someone under audit from releasing his or her tax returns.

    Melania paying homage to Jackie with her inauguration outfit was nice. I don't hold what her husband does against her. I've noticed she doesn't seem that happy at times out in public with Donald. It can't be easy being the wife of Trump.

    I didn't say he actually say he did this yet. I said he would. I suspect he's been too busy fighting with judges and criticizing Nordstrom's to get around to giving much $ to US corporations yet. Fortunately, for the US taxpayers, he had his VP to pay for the Carrier photo op, as that was before he could spend any money, but perhaps it was not so fortunate for the taxpayers of Indiana.

    By the way, the money to Bombardier is a loan, not a grant. Didn't Harper "give" money to GM too? Lost 3.5 billion, I believe - here is the link:

    Ok, I got it - Trump didn't save those jobs and it was ok for Harper to bail out a corporation, because there was a recession on and he was wearing blue socks when he did it but you'd rather we forget it anyways.

    I hope you do realize he actually wasn't president for most of January, it only seems longer.

    Perhaps February will not be so good, his approach seems to not be working lately.

    Ivanka Trump boycott continues; Donald Trump comments on Twitter

    By Marilisa Racco National Online Journalist, Smart Living Global News
    Update: In a memo obtained by The New York Times, last Wednesday employees of T.J. Maxx and Marshalls were instructed to remove Ivanka Trump clothing and accessories from featured sections, and to throw away any Ivanka Trump branded signs.


    The note explicitly stated: “Effective immediately, please remove all Ivanka Trump merchandise from features and mix into the runs.”


    Doreen Thompson, a spokesperson for the TJX Companies, responded to the decision in an email to the Times.


    The list of retailers dropping the Ivanka Trump brand from their shelves, both real and virtual, continues to grow. The Home Shopping Network (HSN) and online search engine ShopStyle are the latest companies to dissociate from the first daughter’s line.


    Today, U.S. President Donald Trump took to his favourite outlet — Twitter — to decry these decisions, taking aim at Nordstrom.
    http://globalnews.ca/news/3235474/ivanka-trump-boycott-continues-donald-trump-comments-on-twitter/

    These retailers join a growing list of companies that have stopped carrying the Ivanka Trump brand, including Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom. Both stores have cited poor sales for their decision, however an internal memo circulated to Nordstrom employees days before the announcement indicates that the travel ban imposed by the Trump administration was a factor in their decision.


    “We currently employ more than 76,000 people who comprise different races, ethnicities and genders,” the statement read. “We literally have thousands of employees who are first- and second-generation immigrants. Every one of your unique qualities brings a richness that allows us to better reflect and serve the multicultured communities we’re a part of and ultimately makes us a better company.”

    Trump can't help himself...

    Donald Trump, who never served in the military, goes after Senate veterans
    http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/09/politi...terans-mccain/

    Washington (CNN)When he wanted to dispute a Democratic Senator over his Supreme Court nominee, President Donald Trump went after the senator's misstatements about serving in Vietnam. And as he defends the first military mission he approved, Trump, who did not himself serve in the military or Vietnam, is again tangling with fellow Republican John McCain, a decorated Vietnam veteran and former POW.


    The decision to take on veterans could put Trump on shaky ground: The President never served in the military and received student and health deferments that kept him out of serving in the war.
    In a string of tweets on Thursday morning, Trump took on McCain for suggesting his first military action -- a raid in Yemen that netted intelligence against ISIS, but cost the lives Navy SEAL Chief Petty Officer William "Ryan" Owens and a number of Yemeni civilians -- was not a success.

    Trump also lashed out against Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, who told reporters on Wednesday that Neil Gorsuch, Trump's Supreme Court pick, told him that he felt Trump's comments about the judiciary branch were "demoralizing" and "disheartening."


    Trump's tweets appear to be an attempt to quiet dissent, even from those within his party.
    McCain's daughter -- Meghan -- slammed Trump for his comments about her father."

    "Trump has never served. My father can't bend one of his knees or lift one of his arms above his head. I am done with this today. DONE.
    Disagree with politics ANY single day but how dare anyone question the honor of my father and his service," she tweeted.

    Well the 9th circuit (that gets a good 8/9 of their decisions overturned by the Supreme Court) thinks the President is merely a ceremonial position and holds no constitutional power, so I'd say yes.

    EDIT - Jeez, I just read that the 9th circuit still has some Nixon appointees. Ha ha.

    It is a big victory...


    ...for democracy.

    “The Government has taken the position that the President’s decisions about immigration policy, particularly when motivated by national security concerns, are unreviewable, even if those actions potentially contravene constitutional rights and protections,” read the unanimous ruling of the three judges. “There is no precedent to support this claimed unreviewability, which runs contrary to the fundamental structure of our constitutional democracy.”
    Trump's tactics worked when he could bully students, tenants, contractors, the Dems and the GOP but he can't push judges when they have the law and the Constitution supporting them. This confounds his narcissistic-personality disorder where he cannot admit he is wrong and he probably having a tantrum in the White House and heads are rolling. The whole administration is in turmoil.

    It is an (expected) small victory for the appeals court.

    There is an 80-90% chance the Supreme Court will overrule the appeals court and call this constitutional (and remember, Trump just nominated the would-be tie-breaking judge), nobody will be able to appeal the next Executive Order ban.

    This ban was only 90 days... I am starting to think this was a calculated political trap to get that new Supreme Court judge in there quicker or as grounds to split up the 9th circuit..

    Two of the four Judges thar ruled against the government are Bush appointees. The law is pretty clear. The Courts do have oversight on the executive power of the President.

    Not having oversight resulted in the Iraq war that was pushed for false reasons, based upon a lie.

    Kellyanne Conway Tells Americans To Buy Ivanka Trump's Products

    Jim Zarroli 2010


    A worker cleaned the windows of the Ivanka Trump Collection in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York last month.
    Andrew Harnik/AP
    Updated at 8 p.m. ET

    Kellyanne Conway, a top adviser to President Trump, may have violated federal ethics rules Thursday when she urged shoppers to buy Ivanka Trump's retail brand, following the decision by several retail companies to drop the line because of poor sales.

    "Go buy Ivanka's stuff, is what I was [saying] — I hate shopping and I'm going to go get some myself today," Conway said in an interview on Fox & Friends.

    "This is just [a] wonderful line," she added. "I'm going to give a free commercial here. Go buy it today, everybody. You can find it online."

    Her comments drew sharp criticism from the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Republican Jason Chaffetz. "That is absolutely wrong, wrong, wrong. It is over the top," Chaffetz told reporters.

    It shows a complete lack of understanding of the rules for conflict of interest in government. Conway is no fool, she deliberately broke the rules and she felt that she is above those rule just like her boss. If she was some government department head, she would have been fired or at least had a weeks pay docked. If this had been one of Obama's staffers the entire Republican party would be up in arms and demanding her resignation.

    This is blatant abuse of power to further her aims to appease the daughter and the President himself. How people sweep such obvious corruption of power, under the rug is indicative of the glaring double standard of this administration.

    Just another form of corporate corruption that has been institutionalized in government and now so blatantly in the White House.

    BTW, has Trump given the People a copy of his tax returns to prove that he is not getting money from foreign governments yet?
    I thought not.

    And Clinton got impeached for lying about a little office sex between two consenting adults.

    More issues

    New Russia revelations pose new problems for Trump’s NSA
    02/10/17 09:22 AM
    By Steve Benen

    Michael Flynn, Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor, has maintained close ties to Moscow in recent years, even getting paid by the Kremlin’s propaganda outlet. It therefore caused quite a stir a month ago, when the Washington Postnoted that Flynn phoned Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak “several times” on Dec. 29, one day after President Obama retaliated against Russia for its role in the election hacking scandal.

    The question, of course, was why Flynn made those calls. If he tried to undermine U.S. sanctions, for example, urging Russia not to retaliate because the Trump administration would pursue a more favorable policy, the communications may have been illegal under the Logan Act. <snip>

    There are a few angles to keep in mind here. The first is that it’s illegal for a private citizen to undermine U.S. foreign policy, and at the time of Flynn’s phone calls to Moscow, Trump was still president-elect and Flynn held no public office. If he offered Russia reassurances about U.S. sanctions, the day after Obama’s actions, Flynn may need a good lawyer.

    The second point to keep in mind is that the White House may have just spent a month giving the public false information about Flynn’s actions. Vice President Mike Pence, in particular, insisted in no uncertain terms during a Jan. 15 interview on CBS that Flynn “did not discuss anything having to do with the United States’ decision to expel diplomats or impose censure against Russia.”

    Now, it’s possible that Pence believed what he was saying, and was simply misled by Flynn, but if that’s the case, Flynn’s ouster is inevitable. If, on the other hand, Pence was lying and trying to cover up Flynn’s alleged misdeeds, the vice president might need a good lawyer, too.

    This is what makes me feel like this Executive Order was a trap or distraction:


    - Donald Trump has been publicly taunting these judges through Twitter and his speeches

    - While the distraction of this travel ban and ruling was happening, he signed 3 new Executive Orders yesterday (to little or no coverage)

    - Instead of issuing a new travel ban Executive Order taking current visa/green card holders into account (which was the one weakness, and what the appeals court used to justify their decision), Trump is instead taking it to the Supreme Court

    - Now with a Supreme Court decision looming, there is more urgency for the Senate to finish confirmations and get to appointing Gorsuch to the Supreme Court position.

    - Now with the judicial system looking so politicized, Republicans (including John McCain this morning) are now pushing to split up the 9th Judicial Circuit

    Yeah, when you choose to show data that predates the upward trends in mass killings due to terrorist attacks in Europe last year, and the upward spike in murders (and murders of police) in the USA in 2016, everything looks like it's getting better.

    https://www.aei.org/publication/is-t...ry-for-police/

    The facts are that 2015 and 2016 had a very low but much publicized number of police officer murders. Several were multiple shootings


    Here are some stats

    According to the FBI, from 1980–2014, an average of 64 law enforcement officers have been feloniously killed per year.

    US Officer Gun deaths
    2010 59
    2011 68
    2012 47
    2013 30
    2014 46
    2015 39
    2016 39

    This does not include officer deaths due to traffic accidents, heart attacks, drownings and
    9/11 related illness

    Hilarious article

    Donald Trump Stunned To Learn Presidency Is An Actual Job, His First

    http://theconcourse.deadspin.com/don...l-j-1792215349

    excerpts

    Maybe you’d better sit down for this one. According to a report by Politico, corned-beef dirigible Donald Trump, a skill-free inheritance baby with a virtually unbroken lifelong track record of incompetence and failure, has found that running the United States government is a tougher job than lending his name to mail-order steak delivery scams run by other people. Because he is a world-historically stupid ***** who could not tell the difference between his face and his *** even if they weren’t identical to each other, this has come as quite a shock to him.
    The President of the United States of America is too stupid to participate in discussions held expressly for his benefit. That is what “some NSC staff” have said, here. Talking to him is a waste of time, because he’s literally incapable of grasping what is being talked about, and he just gets mad, like a baby. Like a big red baby with a sensitive heinie.

    You rail against the MSM yet you never exposed what media outlets you believe and now indicate that you believe in tweets and doctored images like the fake 1977 Time magazine cover on Climate Change that you posted on another thread. Rather than provide a source, you try changing the subject and post something about Chelsea Clinton. You probably believe that the Bowling Green Massacre is fact too.

    Poll: Most Trump Supporters Say ‘Bowling Green Massacre’ Necessitates Travel Ban

    A new poll with Donald Trump supporters suggests that at least half of them believe that the president’s immigration-restricting executive orders are justified, due to the nonexistent Bowling Green Massacre.

    Public Policy Polling put out a new poll recently, where they asked 712 voters “Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: “The Bowling Green massacre shows why we need Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration?” According to the results, approximately 51% of Trump voters believed the supposed tragedy warranted Trump’s order.

    Hey foolish one I know Bowling green never happened you know why I am well informed . I follow every spectrum of politics . I was very tempted to have a career in it but decided on business instead after I was told I am far to outspoken for it and would cause to much havoc. But It's been part of my life since a toddler

    So throw all the fluff you want at me it's like a mosquito without it's needle. Maybe I would take you serious if you stopped all the childish attacks on Trump and actually realized what he is trying to do for his country and why people voted him in. And a big reason why is all the BS thrown at him and I mean bs which insulted many level headed Americans see this And the Liberal bullying going on across the world is waking up other countries like France Germany England and many other to follow. It's like people thinking trolling him and making fun will have any effect other then chasing people to the right , and it's only going to get worse for the liberals in the states they're going to lose seats in the 2018 in the midterm because they live in a bubble of fantasy and can't see their error of their way because of utter arrogance .

    Possibly due to a small matter of China being a major threat to both of their interests.

    Or that he didn't have a clue what Abe was talking about?

    He kept on calling him Donald - I found that very odd. I thought the Japanese were more formal and considered formality to be a sign of respect.

    Donald Trump purposely inserts obvious mistakes in his contracts that the other party will find and distract them from the bigger and more important details. In essence, Trump fleeces them while they pat themselves on the back for catching the "mistakes".

    This is the tactic that Trump has been doing for his entire campaign, and continues today. For example, while people are laughing at KellyAnne saying something that Trump would say, like Bowling Green "Massacre" (which may have been deliberate - helps Trump because people look up what happened in Bowling Green and learn something the press didn't cover), Trump does all sorts of things that fly under the radar.

    Just think about all the ink that has been wasted on fighting and arguing about this 90 day travel ban, while he has sworn in more of his cabinet and executed more orders that almost NOBODY is talking about.

    He is a Ph.D. level expert at trolling. It's the way he thinks all the time.
