Bush Calls for Unity. Trump Attacks Bush. And Then a Host of Others.

The Political Agitator’s response: Now if those Die Hard Ignant Racist Republican Special Cs would call Trump on his mess the world could move forward and fight the pandemic along with other mess. But nope they will die and go to hell before they have a change of heart and admit that he is not the guy however he is their guy.

President Trump did not welcome a video by former President George W. Bush appealing for national solidarity in the face of a pandemic, and he made clear that such unity was not on his agenda.

WASHINGTON — President Trump had a quick reaction on Sunday after former President George W. Bush called for national unity. He attacked Mr. Bush.

National unity, Mr. Trump made clear, was not on his agenda for the day, even as the death toll from the coronavirus pandemic that has ravaged the country passed 67,000 and tens of millions of out-of-work Americans struggled to get by.

Amid the death and devastation, the president was busy not only assailing Mr. Bush but another predecessor as well, embracing a fringe conspiracy theory to accuse former President Barack Obama of masterminding a “hoax” to take him down. Mr. Trump also attacked a prominent Democratic congressman, denigrated the news media and threatened to withhold aid to states hard hit by the virus unless they bowed to his demands on immigration policy.

Then he planned to end his day with . . . (Read more)

Breaking News: Trump tax returns reveal over $1bn in losses and that he paid no income taxes for eight years, report says – Independent

The Political Agitator’s response: Truth confirmed. Now gonna wait to see how his supporters try to twist this. Oh but his tweets should be damn good! I’ll wait!

Donald Trump‘s tax returns show that he lost so much money in the mid-1980s to 1990s that he paid no income tax for eight out of 10 years during that period, according to a new report.

The income tax records were obtained by The New York Times, and represent the most detailed look into the president’s personal taxes yet, after years in which Mr Trump had sought to keep the documents private.

Between 1985 and 1994, the documents show, Mr Trump lost tens of millions of dollars a year, with total losses adding up to $1.17bn for the decade.

According to The New York Times report on the taxes, Mr Trump’s losses mostly came from his business holdings in casinos, hotels, and retail apartment space in his buildings. And, the paper reports, the sheer amount of losses during that time show that he lost more money than almost any other American taxpayer during that time, according to a comparison of his taxes to an annual comparison of high income earners compiled by the Internal Revenue Service.

A national emergency declaration to build a wall would set precedent – NC SPIN

by Brad Crone, Communications consultant and NC SPIN panelist,  February 11, 2019.

Gun control advocates are hoping and praying the President will declare a national emergency to get funding for the Mexican wall.  The folks who are pushing for tighter restrictions on hand-guns and gun access believe that a national emergency declaration by the President will set a precedent that will enable a future Democrat President to use the national emergency declaration as a means to bypass Congress on gun control measures.

While the President wants to build his wall – using a national emergency declaration could truly open Pandora’s box for the NRA and gun rights supporters.

Just imagine this scenario not so distant in the country’s future…a Democrat is elected to the White House, there is a school-yard massacre again and the President declares a national emergency implementing an aggressive gun-control policy regarding private sales, background checks and specific equipment that is currently legal and available in today’s market.

Could you imagine the uproar coming from gun owners and advocates? (Read more)
