About his taxes... Ladies and gentlemen... it is quite possible Trump "leaked" his own tax return for this particular year, because it is the only year when he paid taxes. Only year EVER.

From the beginning, people was skeptical about the truthfulness of this "leak". Just think about it.

"President Donald Trump may have leaked his own 2005 tax return, according to the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter David Cay Johnston." etc.

Sure
Hey, aren't you the guy who wrote "“microwaves that turn into cameras” is technically correct"???

That would explain why the most intelligent reply you could come up is one single word - "sure".

I would guess this as well.

Hidden in the hyperbole, is the fact that he paid 4% in federal income tax, the remaining 21% is the alternative minimum tax. You know, that pesky little tax that trump wants to get rid of. And that total of 25% is the same tax "middle class" earners pay.

Well played strategy by trump/bannon to leak 12 year old tax information that is useless at best.
Its a genius move by bannon. Rachel Maddow fell for it too. :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

Bannon got moves like jagger. He is not only controlling POTUS, he has the alt right. He humiliates corporate democrats on a daily basis. Pretty soon the GOP will feel the wrath. Paul Ryan is about to feel the pain of bannon if he doesnt smarten up and bark like a dog when he is told to.

This guy is literally hitler/goebbels mixed into one. Im not even hating. The guy is a beast of a tactician.

When it comes to "the wall", I think that many people who voted for Trump don't really care about the wall itself and what form it will take. Rather, they support the idea that it's OK to put physical barriers try people from entering the country illegally.

It could have come from anyone who had phyiscal access to any area where he kept them (either authorized or unauthorized). For a person like Trump who has a lot of people working for him, that could be a lot of people (and remember, they could have been stolen a long time ago, before he had a lot of security protection).

Trump admitted to Tucker Carlson that his income for 2005 was actually $250mil when you account for the $100mil in tax deductions. He also surprised me by saying that the tax rate for the wealthy is so low. Then said he wants to regulate pharmaceutical prices.. I was actually a little taken aback.

On the subject of immigration/Travel bans:

Anyone else see this article last year on the EU proposing a fine for not meeting asylum seeker quotas? 250K Euro (~360K CAD) per person refused.
http://www.politico.eu/article/commissi ... -refugees/

I still don't understand why there has been such a large push to depopulate the middle east and move large volumes of people into countries around the world. Plus most government playing part in this and it being taboo to speak out against it in the media. It would be simpler to setup shelters in safe areas within those countries with peacekeeping missions there until things stabilize? unless our government doesn't want them in their home countries either. EU already has high enough unemployment as it is and addition asylum seekers isn't going to help not to mention the increased burden on public services and safety nets in pace.

I remember reading a book years ago on how to overthrow a government through mass immigration. Essentially you allow large amounts of immigration to occur over a decade or two and there is a point where the immigrants outnumber the native populations and then vote themselves into power, then implement laws and customs that they had back in their home countries. It's not an overnight thing but can take a few decades to accomplish.

Sounds like a nice conspiracy theory to me.

This is a case of Occam's Razor; most of the migrants are Syrian refugees, fleeing a brutal civil war. Pictures of the civil war and the devastation it's wrought, are quite readily available on the 'Net, although they won't be published on the CBC/FOX evening news or the front page of NYT/WSJ. So if you want to see a blown-up schoolroom filled with dismembered children's bodies, etc. there actually ARE pictures on the net of this sort of thing, updated on a daily basis.

It's a good way to shut up the nutjobs who think the Soros-run Illuminati are trying to overthrow "the west" due to depopulation. :facepalm:
