Do you really care about what businessman/showman Trump did BEFORE he worked tirelessly to give us an excellent economy, tax cuts, fewer rules and regulations, smaller government, the beginnings of peace in the Middle East, and kept his campaign promises?

All while under 24/7 attack by the Obama Administration's intelligence and law enforcement agencies, the majority party in Congress, and the intense scrutiny of the mainstream media who refused to retract the outright lies they published daily? And, all while Democrat governors tried to kill the economy by putting politics above the people they governed and shut-down their states with no scientific rationale?

Name any other president in history that has put more hours in the Oval Office in service to “We the People.”

drudge-headlineOf course, there are the “anonymous sources” and disclaimers…

The New York Times has obtained tax-return data extending over more than two decades for Mr. Trump and the hundreds of companies that make up his business organization, including detailed information from his first two years in office. It does not include his personal returns for 2018 or 2019. This article offers an overview of The Times’s findings; additional articles will be published in the coming weeks.

The returns are some of the most sought-after, and speculated-about, records in recent memory. In Mr. Trump’s nearly four years in office — and across his endlessly hyped decades in the public eye — journalists, prosecutors, opposition politicians and conspiracists have, with limited success, sought to excavate the enigmas of his finances. By their very nature, the filings will leave many questions unanswered, many questioners unfulfilled. They comprise information that Mr. Trump has disclosed to the I.R.S., not the findings of an independent financial examination. They report that Mr. Trump owns hundreds of millions of dollars in valuable assets, but they do not reveal his true wealth. Nor do they reveal any previously unreported connections to Russia.

[OCS: The individual(s) that provided these returns to the New York Times or other entities is guilty of a felony.]

In response to a letter summarizing The Times’s findings, Alan Garten, a lawyer for the Trump Organization, said that “most, if not all, of the facts appear to be inaccurate” and requested the documents on which they were based. After The Times declined to provide the records, in order to protect its sources, Mr. Garten took direct issue only with the amount of taxes Mr. Trump had paid. <Source>

[OCS: Ask yourself how the tax returns themselves could reveal their source – unless they were photocopies of official government documents or electronic files with embedded GUIDs (Globally Unique IDentifiers)?]

Why now?

Since these tax returns have been in the hands of the Internal Revenue Service, New York State tax authorities, and other state entities for years, why are they being released now? Can it be that this is a necessary distraction from Joe Biden’s debate performance or an opportunity to introduce Trump’s personal finances into the debate?

Or is this a negotiated payoff whereby a government or Trump-insider turns over documents to escape the consequences of their own criminal activity. Much in the same manner the convicted liar Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal attorney, tried to cut a deal for his criminal activities that had nothing to do with Donald Trump.

Bottom line…

Trump has proven himself extremely capable of fighting his own battles against the government, corrupt news media, and officials in high places.

No matter what the outcome of this particular attack might be, I don’t give an effing damn when it is measured against what he has done for the citizens of the United States in the last four years – and especially as measured against the eight years of the Obama Administration and Joe Biden’s 47-years in government.

I just don’t effing care.
