Liberal media launches another full-frontal attack on Donald Trump

First published October 2, 2016 in the Toronto Sun

Here we go again with the liberal media’s latest full-throated, full-frontal attack on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The New York Times revealed Trump reported a $916-million loss on his 1995 income tax returns, which could have allowed him not to pay taxes for 18 years. Please note the emphasis on “could.”

Yet, buried deep beneath the titillating headline “Donald Trump tax records show he could have avoided taxes for nearly two decades, The Times found,” are the reporters’ admissions that this was perfectly legal.

“The tax experts consulted by the Times said nothing in the 1995 documents suggested any wrongdoing by Mr. Trump.”

In fact, reporters explain toward the end of the article that “Under I.R.S. rules in 1995, net operating losses could be used to wipe out taxable income earned in the three years before and the 15 years after the loss.”

My reaction — like so many other Trump supporters — was “so what”? Why is this even a news story?

General Electric aggressively avoids paying federal income taxes every year and was topic of much media discussion in 2011.

Why are people acting shocked that Trump legally didn’t pay taxes in 1995? Why would any smart hardworking American voluntarily give the federal government more of their money to waste and redistribute to others?

Clearly, Trump has a “sophisticated” understanding of America’s tortuous tax code.

In a statement to the Times, the Trump campaign wrote:

“Mr. Trump has paid hundreds of millions of dollars in property taxes, sales and excise taxes, real estate taxes, city taxes, state taxes, employee taxes and federal taxes.”

The statement continued, “Mr. Trump knows the tax code far better than anyone who has ever run for president and he is the only one that knows how to fix it.”

The Times also noted that Trump isn’t the only wealthy person to benefit from this tax provision that “that is particularly prized by America’s dynastic families,” like Bill and Hillary Clinton, for example.

But the Times doesn’t go into any detail about the way the Clintons have protected their wealth or the fact that, since 1997, when the Clinton Foundation — aka Hillary’s Super PAC was founded — it has raised $2 billion to help promote the Clintons’ endeavours.

Moreover, the liberal mainstream media has gone radio silent on allegations about Hillary allowing the Clinton Foundation to sell access to the State Department to the highest bidders. After reviewing a partial release of Hillary’s State Department calendars, the Associated Press found that 85 out of the 154 non-government employees, who met or spoke with Secretary Clinton, donated $156 million to the Clinton Foundation.

What this article proves is that “the New York Times, like the establishment media in general is an extension of the Clinton Campaign, the Democratic Party and their global special interests,” the Trump campaign stated.

Why isn’t the media talking about the FBI and Department of Justice’s investigation into Hillary’s e-mails and the fact that two of Hillary’s close aides have been given immunity to testify?

“Hillary Clinton is a corrupt public official who violated federal law,” alleged the Trump campaign. “Donald Trump is an extraordinary successful private businessman who followed the law and created tens of thousands of jobs for Americans.”

But the New York Times and its liberal media comrades want to go bonkers over Trump legally avoiding paying more taxes than he should — 20 years ago.

Mud flies in lead-up to historic presidential debate

First published September 25, 2016 in the Toronto Sun

With the most anticipated the presidential debate in modern history slated for Monday night, the mud is already flying.

While weary Democrat Hillary Clinton hasn’t been seen for days while holed up in a debate practice bunker, billionaire, reality TV star and Hillary friendster Mark Cuban kicked off the pre-show fireworks.

“Just got a front row seat to watch ?@HillaryClinton overwhelm ?@realDonaldTrump at the ‘Humbling at Hofstra’ on Monday. It Is On!” Cuban tweeted Sept. 22, 2016

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump didn’t tarry in responding to Cuban’s taunting tweet.

“If dopey Mark Cuban of failed Benefactor fame wants to sit in the front row, perhaps I will put Gennifer Flowers right alongside of him!”

Everyone knows by now that if you punch Trump, he’ll hit you harder. For those of you who may have forgotten the many women in former president Bill Clinton’s extramarital harem, Gennifer Flowers was one of his first mistresses.

Trump later backed away from the controversial tweet. His campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, told CNN that the Trump campaign has not formally invited Flowers to be at debate and doesn’t expect her to be there. For her part, Flowers indicated she would attend the debate.

During a 1992 infamous 60 Minutes interview with Bill and Hillary, reporter Steve Kroft questioned the couple about Bill’s affair with Flowers. He denied the decade-plus affair but under oath during for his impeachment trial, Bill confessed to starting the affair with Flowers while he was Arkansas governor.

Flowers, who revealed she had an affair with Bill in 1992, enthusiastically accepted Trump’s invitation.

“Hi Donald. You know I’m in your corner and will definitely be at the debate!” she tweeted.

Hillary’s campaign confirmed Cuban, who is an unabashed Hillary supporter, was invited to the first presidential debate at Hofstra University.

“He has the best seat we have access to. He has proven to be singularly effective in making the case against Trump and for Clinton. That is why we invited him,” an aide told CNN.

And that’s exactly why Trump invited Flowers to embarrass Hillary and prove to voters what a corrupt, flawed and self-serving candidate she is. How can a woman, who has stayed married to a serial philanderer, claim that she’s a champion for women’s rights and equality?

During that 60 Minutes interview, Hillary angrily excoriated Kroft for having the journalistic integrity to confront Bill about his misbehaving.

“I’m not sitting here like some little woman sitting by my man like Tammy Wynette. I’m sitting here because I love him and I respect him and I honour what he’s been through and what we’ve been through together. And you know if that’s not enough for people, then heck don’t vote for him,” Hillary protested.

On Monday night, Trump needs to exercise a discipline we’ve never seen before from him and expose all the reasons why voters shouldn’t “vote for her.” First and foremost, he needs to put her untrustworthiness on display with the examples of her lying and hiding information from Americans: private e-mail, Benghazi, and her health. Also, Trump must point out the numerous donations from foreign governments and businesses to the Clinton Foundation while she was secretary of state.

After reminding voters why Hillary cannot be trusted with the highest job in the country, he needs to demonstrate how she’s become a multi-millionaire from being a government servant. How can she fix what’s wrong with America when she has been on the front line of nearly every major conflict in the past three decades and has only fixed her bank account?

Clinton always right in liberal media — even when she’s not

First published September 18, 2016 in the Toronto Sun

In the eyes of the liberal media, Hillary Clinton’s always right even when she lies.

Her last acts of mendacity are about her health and the roots of the birther movement.

When her legs buckled, and she looked like the leaning tower of Pisa before being abruptly whisked away from a 9/11 memorial service, her campaign stonewalled the media for hours.

First her staff said she got “overheated,” then admitted she had pneumonia.

Instead of the media exposing Hillary’s penchant for and long history of dodging honesty, the liberal press coddled her and made her health woes Donald Trump’s. Rather than demanding Queen Hillary release health records to the 1,200-page standard that Sen. John McCain set in 2008, the liberal media made excuses for Hillary’s blatant lie.

A Washington Post article dripped with weeping pity for the liberal Queen.

“Hillary Clinton had a cough — a nasty, recurring cough that she could not kick after a week of trying.”

After her episode, the two Post reporters who authored the article wrote in fairytale fashion how Hillary rushed to her daughter Chelsea’s apartment in Manhattan, gulped down Gatorade and frolicked with her wee granddaughter Charlotte.

“Oh, how sweet, poor Hillary” — what the reporters wanted readers to feel was sympathy for a woman who habitually lies to voters for personal gain and power.

See how the liberal media acted as Hillary’s handmaidens and twisted the truth to rig the election in her favour? The article went on at length to excuse away Hillary’s lying, adding she just wanted to “power through the election” while running for the highest office in the land.

When was the last time that the liberal media passed up a chance to distort everything Trump says?

Trying to pivot bad press away from Hillary, the media blamed Trump for starting the birther movement and prodded him like a swarm of gnats to admit Obama was born in America. Never mind — that in 2007 — Hillary’s chief campaign strategist Mark Penn drafted a lengthy memo urging her to suggest Obama wasn’t born in America. There was a tonne of press coverage proving Hillary’s campaign did just that.

Last week, at the opening of his hotel in Washington, D.C., Trump gave a terse statement to feed the media vampires.

“Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy. I finished it. You know what I’m talking about. President Barack Obama was born in the United States, period. Now we all want to get back to making America strong and great again,” Trump declared.

After the liberal media hounded Trump to make the comments, they called his statement vile, too short and insisted he perpetuated the birther claim since 2011. Yet, the media never hounds Hillary about her 60 Minutes interview in 2008 when she questioned if Obama was a Muslim.

See what I mean? Trump never wins with the liberal press.

“A bout of pneumonia is not a major story,” declared the Washington Post in a Sept. 16, 2016 opinion piece.

But the Washington Post, along with a basket full of other news outlets, believes that generating Trump birther controversy is? The REAL story is that polls show Trump is now tied with Lyin’ Hillary at 42%.

CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY OFFERS HOUSING ‘FOR BLACKS ONLY’

First published September 13, 2016 in Frontpage Magazine

Sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same. Presidents of leftist colleges across the nation are creating segregated dorms for blacks students in response to the Black Lives Matter mafia. You can’t make this stuff up.

In 1964, Democrats fought tooth and nail to preserve segregation. Racist southern Democrat Dixiecrats like Alabama Governor George Wallace refused to follow the Supreme Court’s Brown vs. Board of Education decision, the law, and even resorted to sanctioning police brutality against blacks to keep his state “separate and unequal.”

It’s more than curious that California State University of Los Angeles proudly announced segregated housing for blacks only. It’s also grotesque that black students praised the move because they feel threatened living with whites at an integrated school. I wonder if any of these students realize that their forefathers fought and died for integration during the Civil Rights Movement and this housing arrangement is a step backwards.

No, you’re not misreading anything, leftists are harkening back to the pre-Civil Rights glory days of segregation.

The newly debuted Halisi Scholars Black Living-Learning Community “focuses on academic excellence and learning experiences that are inclusive and non-discriminatory,” Cal State LA spokesman Robert Lopez told The College Fix via email.”

Does Lopez understand the definition of the word “inclusive”? Never mind, insert the laugh track run here. But Cal State isn’t alone in their backwards-leftist thinking. University of Connecticut, University of California Davis and Berkeley all offer housing for blacks only. It’s like it’s 1954 pre-Brown vs. Board of Education all over again.

If white students demanded segregated dorms in the name of “safe spaces,” they would be called racist. But today in the name of social justice, it’s just another “must do” for blacks. State’s segregated housing is the latest fruit to be borne of the Black Lives Matter movement’s grievance fleecing of college administrators. This housing debacle was part of the Black Student Union’s litany of demands presented to the school nine months ago.

In a letter of DEMANDS to President William Covino, the students wrote:
“Black students at Cal State LA have been, and still are, consistently made the targets of racist attacks by fellow students, faculty, and administration. These attacks come in many forms. Some are more overt and some subtle. Racially insensitive remarks, and micro-aggressions, by professors and students create a learning environment that is not conducive to the overall learning atmosphere.”

Yet, they listed no examples of these racist remarks or micro-aggressions in their list of 14 demands. Each one began with bold letters “WE DEMAND . . . .”

Number 13 was their housing demand:

“WE DEMAND the creation and financial support of a CSLA housing space delegated for Black students and a full time Resident Director who can cater to the needs of Black students. Many Black CSLA students cannot afford to live in Alhambra or the surrounding area with the high prices of rent. A CSLA housing space delegated for Black students would provide a cheaper alternative housing solution for Black students. This space would also serve as a safe space for Black CSLA students to congregate, connect, and learn from each other.”

They also demanded the school create a Pan-African Masters program, presumably so that black students could graduate with a useless, high-priced degree with limited job opportunities. Considering another one of their demands was “a $30 million dollar endowment to help support Black students” pay for college, why would they demand the school put more resources in African Studies degrees with little to no use in the job market?

Another laughable request was the Black Student Union’s DEMAND the school devote “$500,000 in funding for outreach programs that will focus on the recruitment of Black high school students as well as transfer students.” Regardless of a student’s qualifications, the militant group demanded that Cal State “increase the Black student body from 4% to 15% minimum within two years and to increase Black student admissions to 25% within five years.”

None of these demands address how affirmative action, namely weakening academic admission standards for blacks, has led to the high rate of blacks not graduating college at the rate of whites. Cal State’s Black Student Union’s demanding the school admit blacks to fill politically correct quotas will only lead to more blacks dropping out of college with high student loan debt because they’re not academically prepared.

If these black students don’t feel safe at an integrated university with white students, maybe they should apply to the nation’s historically black colleges and universities like Howard University, Morehouse College and Spellman College. At these schools, black students can get the segregated, all-black experience they crave because evidently that’s more important than black minds!

Hillary Clinton living in a deplorable glass house

First published September 11, 2016 in the Toronto Sun

Scripted Hillary Clinton veered off her highly-orchestrated 30-year course to become president.

Doing what she does best — taking money from Americans at a fundraising event in New York City — she slammed Republican Donald Trump’s supporters as “a basket of deplorables.”

“To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?” Hillary preached.

Hillary claims that half of the nearly 14 million people who voted for Trump in the Republican primary — and those who support him now — are deplorable human beings. She didn’t stop there.

At the LGBT for Hillary fundraiser, she continued her screed against Trump supporters.

“Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it. And unfortunately, there are people like that and he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people, now have 11 million. He tweets and retweets offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric.”

In America, where free speech and thought are enshrined in the U.S. constitution under the first amendment, Hillary says that half of Trump’s supporters are racist and everything evil under the sun for supporting him. Yikes!

This heinous name calling sounds like a new horror show on cable: “Basketful of Deplorables.”

Hillary even punctuated her attack on Americans by saying that “some of those folks — they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America.”

The woman who used several private email servers and private emails, and deleted 30,000 emails as secretary of state to hide from accountability to the American people has now elevated herself to the stature of God. If you don’t support her, Hillary says you’re “an irredeemable, deplorable” American.

“How can she be president of our country when she has such contempt and disdain for so many great Americans?” Trump said in a statement.

What’s deplorable isn’t Americans who support Trump but the way Hillary conducts herself as a government official.

While secretary of state, the Clinton Foundation continued to take donations from foreign governments and businesses that had matters being reviewed by the state department. There were blurred lines between where the foundation ended and the state department began.

Hillary’s continued denials and stonewalling about not knowing that “c” stamped on government documents meant confidential is also deplorable. She wants to be the first woman elected president but, as secretary of state, treated classified information in a careless way. FBI Director James Comey said someone of her stature should have known better.

Then there’s Hillary’s unfortunate fainting spell Sunday while visiting the Ground Zero Memorial in New York City to honour the 15th anniversary of 9/11. After stonewalling the media for more than an hour, her campaign issued a statement saying “she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter’s apartment.”

According to the NBC Pool Report, reporters were “told by the campaign that we are no longer allowed to shoot anything from the ceremony.”

Other press said that Hillary’s campaign staff blocked reporters from leaving the media area and refused to tell them what happened to her.

Once again, we see Hillary doing what she and Bill do best — covering up facts and obstructing laws. In this case, it was the freedom of the press to report news about her medical incident.

Hillary’s health has officially become an issue in the 2016 presidential campaign, along with her deplorable behaviour.

Trump Puts Black Vote in Play

First published September 5, 2016 in the Toronto Sun

Without question, Democrats have owned the black vote for more than a half-century, which is why they’re hysterical about Donald Trump’s latest move.

Daring to go where no Republican will, Trump spoke to a black church service in Detroit Saturday to compete for the black vote.

“I am hear today to listen to your message,” he told captive members of Great Faith Ministries International.

“I fully understand the African-American community suffers from discrimination.”

When Trump said this, the black vote officially became competitive. Adding that he was “here to learn and remedy injustice,” Trump demonstrated a natural ease in talking with blacks that his rival Hillary Clinton never does.

In his brief, scripted remarks, Trump expressed a sincerity and humility in offering blacks policies to address their problems and win their votes. While his outreach to black voters hasn’t been pitch perfect, this is a bold step in the right direction. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney didn’t have the guts to do this. He spoke to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, not everyday black voters.

Trump also agreed to do a taped interview with the church’s Bishop Wayne T. Jackson. Because liberals feel threatened by Trump’s engagement with blacks, the New York Times tried to trash his campaign for receiving the questions in advance and preparing answers. Politicians do this all the time, as the Times noted: “It is not uncommon for a candidate to request interview questions in advance; aides to Hillary Clinton do it from time to time. But it is unusual for a campaign to go so far as to prepare a script for a candidate’s own responses.”

Hillary is one of the most scripted candidates to ever run for president, but according to liberal logic, Trump isn’t allowed to prepare for interviews.

Trump is asking blacks to vote for him and going to Democrat territory of black churches, no less. Every four years, Democrat candidates like Barack Obama and Hillary head to the churches to “get down” with blacks, win their votes with lies, then forget about them for four more years.

First liberals criticized Trump for asking blacks to vote for him at predominately white rallies. No liberals are mocking Trump and accusing him of pandering for the black vote now that he is walking into the lion’s den of Democrats’ monopoly on the black vote. Isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black?

When Trump arrived at the church, black protesters outside chanted: “What do you have to lose? Everything.” This was in reference to earlier remarks Trump made telling blacks they should consider voting for him after voting nearly 100% for the Democratic party for the past half century.

 

Sadly, these blacks have lost everything by voting for Democrats and should be protesting Hillary and her lies. Hillary is campaigning to end the mass incarceration of blacks. But in 1994 when she spoke in support of her husband’s crime bill, she called black male criminals super-predators who needed to be brought to heel like dogs.

Detroit, like most of America’s black inner cities, has been run by Democrats for decades and is mired in massive crime, poverty, incarceration rates and unemployment. If any party has been pandering to black people and not delivering, it is the Democrats. Each presidential election since Lyndon B. Johnson was elected in 1964, Democrats have campaigned to fix these problems plaguing blacks, yet they only exacerbate and perpetuate them.

After attending the church service, Trump visited black neighborhoods with Dr. Ben Carson. As a black Republican who criticizes the GOP for ignoring black voters, I hope Trump visits more black neighborhoods and exposes the “Con Job” Democrats have been playing on blacks for decades.
