Trump's Taxes Show Chronic Losses and Years of Tax Avoidance

Source: New York Times

Donald J. Trump paid $750 in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency. In his first year in the White House, he paid another $750.

He had paid no income taxes at all in 10 of the previous 15 years — largely because he reported losing much more money than he made.

As the president wages a re-election campaign that polls say he is in danger of losing, his finances are under stress, beset by losses and hundreds of millions of dollars in debt coming due that he has personally guaranteed. Also hanging over him is a decade-long audit battle with the Internal Revenue Service over the legitimacy of a $72.9 million tax refund that he claimed, and received, after declaring huge losses. An adverse ruling could cost him more than $100 million.

The tax returns that Mr. Trump has long fought to keep private tell a story fundamentally different from the one he has sold to the American public.

Ok, this shows that he is a loser. Will the suckers who voted for him wake up ?

Another day, another Amy Cooper...

A pregnant Upper West Side socialite calls the NYPD, falsely claiming a black woman 'in her neighborhood' was 'attacking' her.
The white woman, who identifies herself as Svitlana Flom, 34, can be heard telling officers she was being 'threatened' while footage does not support this claim. Flom, who is married to millionaire car salesman Gary Flom, also goes on to accuse the woman of 'harassing' her and 'threatening' her children; the clip posted online does not show that.
Sharing the footage online @_brownsugarbaby said: 'From 6:15pm - 7:31pm this woman, Svitlana Flom, felt the need to not only approach me but call the cops MULTIPLE TIMES ON ME!!


According to the article, this woman is part-owner of two restaurants "Maison Vivienne" in NYC and Southampton...decent people in NYC know where not to go now... It is listed on Yelp and on Tripadvisor

'A Victory for Free Speech': WBAI is back on the air

Source: Brooklyn Daily Eagle

WBAI is back.

One month to the day since operations at the decades-old, listener-supported radio station were suspended by its parent organization, the Pacifica Foundation, 99.5 WBAI FM has regained local control of its airwaves.

Pacifica, which owns a slate of other local radio stations, came under fire on Oct. 7 for abruptly halting WBAI operations, dismantling the station’s Atlantic Avenue studio and replacing its local broadcasting with syndicated content. At the time, the nonprofit organization cited millions of dollars of debt and a new vision for the Brooklyn-based station.

The sudden shutdown prompted back-and-forths in court, as advocates claimed that Pacifica violated its own bylaws by not first bringing the decision to its board. On Oct. 15, just hours after WBAI supporters protested Pacifica’s “rogue” actions on the steps of City Hall, a judge upheld a temporary restraining order against the nonprofit, barring Pacifica from impeding on local broadcasting and mandating it continue to pay WBAI staffers until the parties’ next bout in court.

During the takeover of the airwaves, WBAI's Twitter account was one of the only ways to get accurate updates about what was going on.
I just made a monthly donation at WBAI's website. New Yorkers are fortunate to have locally-based progressive programming again.

Brett Kavanaugh and pals accused of gang rapes in high school, says lawyer Michael Avenatti

Brett Kavanaugh and pals accused of gang rapes in high school, says lawyer Michael Avenatti
Sep 23, 2018 | 9:30 PM

Lawyer Michael Avenatti told the Senate Judiciary Committee late Sunday that he has multiple witnesses who can say Brett Kavanaugh participated in gang rapes of drunken women during high school.

“We are aware of significant evidence of multiple house parties in the Washington, D.C. area during the early 1980s during which Brett Kavanaugh, Mark Judge and others would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs in order to allow a ‘train’ of men to subsequently gang rape them,” Avenatti said in an email to Mike Davis, chief counsel for nominations for the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Avenatti did not disclose any details or identities of his witnesses.

Avenatti, who made a name for himself as porn star Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, aired the allegations Sunday night as another allegation against Kavanaugh emerged in The New Yorker.

Judge, Kavanaugh’s high school friend, has previously denied that any sexual misconduct took place.

Avenatti hinted at the nature of his allegations when he suggested to the Senate Judiciary Committee a series of questions to ask Kavanaugh.

One of his questions: “Did you ever target one or more women for sex or rape at a house party? Did you ever assist Mark Judge or others in doing so?”

Also, Avenatti suggested asking Kavanaugh: “Did you ever attend any house party during which a woman was gang raped or used for sex by multiple men?”

And: “Did you ever witness a line of men outside a bedroom at any house party where you understood a woman was in the bedroom being raped or taken advantage of?”

Avenatti also said Kavanaugh should be asked if he ever tried to prevent men from raping or taking advantage of women at any house party.

The new allegations follow the claims of Christine Blasey Ford, who claims that Kavanaugh attempted to rape her at a high school party.

Ford, who was 15 at the time, told the Washington Post that then-17-year-old Kavanaugh pushed her into a bedroom, groped her and tried to pull off her clothes while covering her mouth with his hand so she couldn’t scream.

“I thought he might inadvertently kill me,” she said. “He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing.”

Kavanaugh has denied Ford’s allegations.

“I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation,” he said in a statement distributed by the White House. “I did not do this back in high school or at any time.”

Late Sunday, Deborah Ramirez told the New Yorker that Kavanaugh had exposed himself to her at a dorm party when they were both at Yale.

She said Kavanaugh “thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away.”

“Brett was laughing,” she told the magazine. “I can still see his face, and his hips coming forward, like when you pull up your pants.”

Kavanaugh also denied Ramirez’s accusations.

Thank you, Mr. Avenatti and the brave women and men breaking silence.
