    Congressional Democrats’ emoluments lawsuit targeting President Trump’s private business can proceed, judge says

    Now this is big.
    How big?

    Because this truly hits Trump where it hurts...his money and his business.
    It's ye olde Trading Places motto...how do you really hurt rich people?? You take away their money.

    You may not be able to impeach him. You may not be able to jail him. You may not be able to shut him the hell up.

    But you CAN set boundaries...Constitutionally.
    No business or conflict of interest with Foreign governments, entities or even domestic business with foreign contracts.

    Even SCOTUS can't supersede the Constitution, it's directly and blatantly written in there. Not even an amendment.
    Question is...how fast can they move it??
    Govenment and the courts move SLOW, especially with opposition legal and political headwinds of every shape and form.

    Still, this is truly a Constitutional matter.
    History beinging made here.
    First time it being addressed.

    Then again, Trump has pushed the limits of this moreso than any previous prez. (that I know of....correct me if I'm wrong)

    Documents show foreign diplomats held leases in Trump Tower without congressional permission

    Oi Vey...here we go again.
    Is there ANY month that this guy doesn't get revealed to be doing another corrupt act???

    Bad enough that we may had what we have before...now it's expanded.
    And this article is from a conservative newspaper...so it's getting their attention too without spin or explanation.

    Ok, what is he, his company and his administration being investigated for?
    Let me count the ways....

    Wait, I'm too damn tired to list them all out...and I'd likely forget a few there are so many.
    Forget about it. (gotta find a doc somewhere by someone who has no life or is paid to do this crap...)

    Maybe we can get Politifact to start tracking presidential investigations too.
    They already track lies/facts and promises (*they did this for Obama too)
    Why not that?

    I'll put it in their suggestion box.

    Steven Mnuchin Refuses to Release Trump’s Tax Returns to Congress

    Of course...now let's see if Congress (House) has the spine to vote for contempt...and followup on it.

    Now, the fact that everyone in their power is pushing to hide Trump's tax returns...makes you think WHAT are they hiding???
    Just curious.

    There's so much bullshit these day, these might as well make the White House a cow stable. :mad:
    (of course, Congress is a chicken farm :rolleyes:)

    Tax, taxes and even more taxes - NYT got something...

    Trump tax returns from 1985-94 show $1 billion in losses: NY Times

    5 Takeaways From 10 Years of Trump Tax Figures

    Trump Used Same Tax Breaks as Amazon to Obliterate His IRS Bill

    So basically, the great businessman isn't so great.
    And the guy who gives tax breaks, yet complains about his opposition's tax break...get OODLES of tax breaks and writeoffs.

    So his hypocrisy, is still at full steam
    And his energy at lying is abound (certainly not skills, because his bluff always called - Trump plays poker as well as his golf game, which is NOT good at all and he cheats)

    Great guy ya voted in "supporters" :rolleyes:

    But let's see if they actually get them
    Opinion | Sorry, Steve Mnuchin. Congress Has a Right to See Trump’s Tax Returns.

    And in New York...
    N.Y. Lawmakers Move Closer to Allowing Release of Trump’s State Tax Returns

    Trump is the ultimate wingman. He helped Putin make the Republican party his bitch. Trump taught him to grab them by the pussies. And McConnell, Graham, Pence, and all the others just fell in line. All ready to fall to their knees and gobble some greasy borscht and collect their rubles. Putin doesn't even pay them directly. Just has his oligarchs handle it.

    There is a problem with the vast number of unethical and illegal actions of TRump. There are so many of them voters will tire of hearing about them, and will become jaded.

    Which is most likely just what TRump wants.

    That asshole could actually get reelected.

    Trump invokes patriotism to justify China tariff pain

    Good luck with that... :rolleyes:
    So you give a grand tax cut to the higher incomes and businesses...but then you do what is basically an even larger tax on everyone.

    I can see that y'didn't study the maths in school. (much less, of anything else too :oops:)

    Correct
    It’s an exaggeration by the media
    Of what is now an uncommon scenario
    Especially in terms of the volume and sums of money

    They often forget to consider the percentages and relative comparison to history.

    However, considering Mr T’s own audacious and exaggerated claims of continuous positive growth and never losing...

    It seems to contradict ALL of his claims and promises
    Especially in comparison to what his policies are doing to tear & wear down everyone BUT Wall street.

    So...I put in an exaggerated exclamation just to make a point of the hypocrisy, irony and stupid con-artistry.

    I’m a capitalist and a GDI..I’m a pragmatic realist.
    And I prefer my politicians be real too.

    I don’t respect bullshit artists
    Or in relative terms of your typical politician
