New York Times publishes Trump’s 20 year old tax return. So what does that prove?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Over the weekend, the New York Times published an excerpt from Donald Trump’s personal income tax return from 1995. The Times didn’t even allege that Trump did anything illegal. The only illegal act was by the Times in printing it.

The return says Trump made about $45 million, but lost $915 million. So his net income for that year was minus $872 million.

And that’s the liberal talking point: That Trump is a loser. And because he wrote off that loss against other gains, he’s not paying his fair share in taxes.

But I’ll show you Hillary’s tax return from last year: She did the same thing. The New York Times pays no taxes, either. It’s a money-loser.

Like any businessman, Trump made money some years, and lost money other years.

What have Hillary and Bill Clinton ever done as entrepreneurs? Nothing, of course.

This is not just the politics of envy. It’s also proof that Hillary Clinton and her entire world are takers, not makers.

And if you think this is only about hating Donald Trump, you’re wrong.

It’s about hating any maker, any doer, any entrepreneur everywhere...

NEXT: One of our favourite guests, Marc Marano of ClimateDepot.com (and the film “Climate Hustle”) says that Australia is intentionally going “back to the Dark Ages,” paying the price for relying on “alternative” renewable energy.

THEN: Lawyer Albertos Polizogopouloson joins me with an update to a story I brought you in August:

The Christian Heritage Party is taking the City of Hamilton to court, after it removed bus shelter ads challenging the city’s policy allowing men who claim to be women to use women’s washrooms and change rooms.

I stand corrected. Trump was ahead by 2-3%. Thanks Andrews.

Cameron Robock you are telling an out right lie.

Trump’s still up by 4%


The LA Times admits their methodology probably overstates Republican support (by “a point or two”, but what, in practice, seems considerably more) Literally every other poll conducted in the last week or so has Clinton ahead by 5% or more.

Zero? Not even sales taxes? Wrong. He, like anyone of us, took advantage of the law. Did YOU not claim anything to reduce your tax bill? No charitable donations, no personal exemptions, education costs, nothing?

This is a non-issue to distract from Clinton who IS his only alternative.

Trump pays 0 taxes. Anyone who pays taxes should not vote for this scum.

Trump’s still up by 4%


Despite all of her advantages, Hillary still can’t get ahead of Trump. You can hardly blame her for trying to smear Trump. It’s all she has. It’s better than talking about Benghazi or emails.

If you don’t take advantage of the tax code, and by that I mean legally make use of the rules as they are written, then you are the opposite of smart to be sure. Anyone who has reached ‘billionaire’ status has paid many many taxes over many many years. If they have a year where their losses out weigh their profits they can by law write that loss off against their tax bill. Clinton does it, and so do most who make and lose big. It’s nothing new, it’s nothing scandalous and is in fact available for anyone to make use of if their loss exceeds their gain. There is nothing to see here.

Well nobody has organized a movement to figuratively “Storm the Bastille” or throw tea into The Great Lakes in protest of taxes levied by a cruel monarchy. YET , and I do mean YET!!!! Borrowing from the title of John Steinbeck’s book , this could well be “The Winter of Our Discontent”.

Kelly Weber said, " Rich people don’t pay taxes, "

Bullshit. Another socialist liar. "

Is it, though? To paraphrase a certain prominent billionaire, not paying taxes makes one smart.

You are right about that Edward.

- Much like Obama’s (& before that Elizabeth Warren’s) “you didn’t build that” speech, this “tax scandal” shows their ignorance of how economics & taxes work – or their reliance of the ignorance of their followers. The lawlessness demonstrated by Hillary & the Democrats is what’s undermining them now. Hillary never built a business. She learned from her hero, Saul Alinsky, how to shake down business & she knows all about selling out American interests for “donations” to the Clinton Foundation.

- “Green” energy has failed wherever it’s been implemented on a large scale. It’s not viable. A good book I read on this, which breaks down the numbers, is Power Hungry: The “Myths” of Green Energy and the Real Fuels of the Future – by Robert Bryce. Got my Climate Hustle DVD – going to be watching it this weekend (preordered it some time ago.)

- “Progressives” are triggered by free speech & freedom of expression. It makes them run to their safe spaces so they can molest some puppies or whatever they do there. It’s open season in the West on Christians – say anything about Islam though & then watch the firestorm.

Edward. So do you think the federal reserve will get a couple million dead people to vote for Killary like I do?

Liza the majority of lefty media in Canada especially have been showing only one side of the issues for years. At least in the U.S. on stations like C.N.N. they may stack the deck against Trump with a panel of 5-7 Clinton supporters to the 2 trump supporters but at least those trump supporters get some good licks in and bring up the hypocrisy citing specific events. Here the mainstream media for the most part don’t even bother to look at the issue.

New York Times publishes Trump’s 20 year old tax return. So what does that prove? It proves that the left while hypocritically feigning outrage at Trump at his alleged appeal to Russia to hack are willing to break the law when there is a campaign to be won and the establishment to protect. Practically ever accusation they have leveled at Trump Hillary has surpassed. Be it the birther issue or the using a bad language or bad temper or racist or sexist language. Hillary is no one to preaching at anyone else about being a bad example for little children watching a political debate as her campaign commercial shows. (The likeliest of scenarios).

There will be usual rigging. Dead people voting. Handing out smokes to bums in exchange to drive them to the polls.

“…the majority of voters think Donald Trump is a racist, sexist, hateful and ignorant bigot…” I would say ‘many’ instead, but the lies effectively spewed have stuck onto many, too lazy to seek out the truth, the actual fact of the matter. So I would have to agree with that part of your comment Jimmy. ‘Many’ have indeed bought the lies about Trump. This is also thanks to the utter refusal of ‘many’ to see Hillary for all she has ‘accomplished’ and a proclivity to disregard Trump for all HE has accomplished (and no thanks to the msm for misrepresenting him every blessed time).

Then there is the actual ‘rigging ’ part of it. Hillary is corrupt and powerful enough, we have all seen her at work before. She is a master deceiver, I will give her that, and she has a very large group of well paid (one way or the other) people, many in high places who do their best to make sure certain things happen or don’t happen. You only have to look as far as the last debate to know that the game is rigged.

I think it will be nothing short of a miracle if Trump gets in, but it won’t be because Hillary is the right American for the job, that’s for sure. She is the worst kind of corrupt crook. As is her expansive circle of ’fixer’s’ and supporters.

banning free speech and not allowing debate…hmmmm sounds like communists. yes that’s right, we are a communist country now. Thanks to the people who voted for ndp and liberal. idiots.

Ah yes – there it is. If Clinton wins, it’s because the election was rigged. It can’t possibly be that the majority of voters think Donald Trump is a racist, sexist, hateful and ignorant bigot – you know, all the people here love about him.

Trump is going to lose and deserves to lose. Canada will also have much stronger relations with America, since Hillary and Trudeau certainly have more in common over Trudeau and Donald Drumpf.

Thanks for covering the Christian Heritage Party and the bus shelter ads that were taken down by the city. I hope that the lawyer you interviewed will be successful in bringing them back.

Keep in mind that the Christian Heritage Party is also pro-Israel and is against the BDS (boycott, divest and sanctions) movement that is trying to economically boycott Israel.

Internal Revenue Services are obviously admitting that all Trumps income and taxes are all legal and no fraud exists, so, wake the fuk up clinton and main stream media bias, libtards, CTV, CBC, Global liars and deceivers. Your boss lucifer has you fooled.
commented 2016-10-04 02:22:24 -0400
There’s probably a “saul alinsky term” for this type of move – create a personal attack from literally nothing.

If Trump had evaded, the IRS would have put him in jail in 1995.

These are just Trump’s number – like the color of the shit he has in the morning – it is what it is.

Jimmy Reece if she does i will enjoy all your excuses for her term.

Lets see , Trump does nothing illegal, Hillary does, so that makes Trump bad?
Saw a good meme online today, it showed Hillary demanding Trumps tax return with Trump responding by saying " I emailed them to you"

I challenge all the celebs who are against Trump to show how much they pay.

Andrew Stephenson how does this one year make Trump what he is speaking against? He did not make profits that year. As usual you know nothing and show it.
commented 2016-10-04 01:57:21 -0400
It proves they have nothing at all to criticize Trump for. Nothing. Everything they come up with is either a bare faced lie or a severely twisted ,slanted shadow of a fact. It is an absolute abject joke.
commented 2016-10-04 01:57:08 -0400
It is a a fact that Trump played entirely by the rules. In fact he has done exactly what the Clinton’s do and all the trolls are screaming that he’s a tax cheat. Which part of Trump did nothing against the tax laws do they not understand?
You watch, Trump will make this work for him. There is nothing to hurt him here.

Sean and Jimmy, Trump could lose to Hillary, and if he does it will be because the whole thing is rigged. You guys have some kind of sicko death wish if you want to see Hillary in the White House. All the woman deserves is the ‘big house’. I’m hoping she will spontaneously combust, but if she manages to pull this off it will be no surprise. So go on and hold your breath for the big boot filling.
