NYT changes subject from Kavanaugh

Robert E. Lee's last words were, "Strike the tent."

This afternoon, the New York Times struck the tent on the Anti-Kavanaugh Circus by publishing a 14,000-word report on President Trump's financial history.

It's over because the New York Times wants to change subjects. Polls show Marxist Democrats are taking a pounding over this nomination in red states, which means they will lose Senate seats.

So the Times changed the subject with the story -- "4 Ways Fred Trump Made Donald Trump and His Siblings Rich" -- which it bills as a blockbuster but we all know it is a diversion.

Within an hour of posting the story online, it had 80,000 mentions on Twitter, mainly from liberal loyalists eager for another venue to vent their hate.

It is Kavanaugh Who? time for liberals.

The story could have been held. A story of that length consuming pages of newsprint belong in the Sunday newspaper, not in the middle of another busy week in the news.

My guess is the story was supposed to run this Sunday, but a panic-stricken New York Times was horrified to witness the evaporation of its dream of the Democratic Party taking over the Senate and leaving a Supreme Court vacancy open for a Democratic president in 2020.

The story about President Trump's fortune is the Stormy Daniels of financial reporting.

The Times story said, "In Donald J. Trump’s version of how he got rich, he was the master dealmaker who parlayed an initial $1 million loan from his father into a $10 billion empire. It was his guts and gumption that overcame setbacks, and his father, Fred C. Trump, was simply a cheerleader. But an investigation by The New York Times shows that by age 3, Donald Trump was earning $200,000 a year in today’s dollars from his father’s empire. He was a millionaire by age 8. By the time he was 17, his father had given him part ownership of a 52-unit apartment building."

Isn't that how NYT's Sulzberger family operated?

Whether he started with $1 million or $100 million does not matter because Donald John Trump built that into a multi-billion-dollar empire.

He went into Manhattan when smart money was fleeing. President Trump started a renaissance in Manhattan that NYT Inc. benefits from because its building is worth so much more today.

But let us not lose sight of the real purpose of this silly story because the Times wants to change subjects, which shows its editors know that opposing Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a big time loser for Democrats.

I don't see how they win. If they stop Kavanaugh, that will anger Republicans even more than this farce already has angered them.

If they don't stop Kavanaugh, Democrats continue a losing streak that depresses their fans.

The longshot attempt to gain a Supreme Court seat backfired. We know this because liberals want to switch topics.

  1. Not playing their game.

    If Trump did not authorize this, then it's illegal.

    Moreover, Dems controlled enrire government for a while. They could gave changed the laws.

    if you are not rich, you will get rich in Congress and have a good chance getting rich after serving in the admin.

    You see, Dems hate paying taxes too.

  2. They must have given up on Russia as well. Haven't hear a peep from the Mule Team in weeks.

  3. Sulzberger should have his finances made public. Seems fair to me. Just put them out there and dare him to cry about it.

  4. They've sh*t the bed regarding Kavanaugh. No Russian collusion. No 25th amendment. Help us Emoluments Clause -- you're our only hope!

  5. Sure hope you're right on this, Don -- maybe the Feinstein staff who leaked the letter is a bit more afraid of the FBI than Kavanaugh?

  6. I'm certain the IRS knows President Trump's tax returns inside and out. If there was a problem, it has already been dealt with to the satisfaction of the IRS.

    It's five weeks until Election Day, and the smell of Democrat Desperation is in the air.

    President Trump is educating the GOP on inter-party warfare, and they are beginning to pick up on it (finally!). I believe it will only get worse for the Democrats.

    1. Never had anything to do with his returns,

      "The White House issued a scathing response Tuesday evening to the New York Times story that claimed President Trump and his family engaged in potentially fraudulent tax maneuvers that substantially increased the fortune he received from his parents.

      "Fred Trump has been gone for nearly twenty years and it’s sad to witness this misleading attack against the Trump family by the failing New York Times. Many decades ago the IRS reviewed and signed off on these transactions," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders wrote in a statement Tuesday evening. "The New York Times’ and other media outlets‘ credibility with the American people is at an all time low because they are consumed with attacking the president and his family 24/7 instead of reporting the news."

  7. In poker it is called a tell. The Times just showed that the democrats have dug another hole they can't get out of, unless the brain dead voters give them a life line.

    Praying that the voters are not that stupid that even if Manchin, Heitkamp, McCaskill, etc. vote for Kavanaugh, they won't be rewarded at the voting booth.

    1. No, but they have to do something to hold on to their senate seats even though it will be in vein.

  8. Now I know where all the potholes in the road come from.

    The Democrats dig a hole and yell, "Look, a hole!" By the time someone shows up to investigate the hole, the Democrats have dug another hole. "Forget that hole! Look, another hole. There's a pattern!" The Democrats may be masters at misdirection. But President Trump is the Grand Master.

  9. Shouldn't the story at the times be about the IRS leaking confidential tax documents? For that matter all government leaks.

  10. CNN has also switched to 100% reporting of Trump's taxes. I wonder who the circus leader is that is running the left MSM?

    1. I've also wondered this. It's too structured to be spontaneous. There is probably some pretty shocking stuff if we can ever get to the bottom of it.

  11. Joe Kennedy who spawned a seemingly unending slew of entitled wannabe royalty acquired his wealth from illegal booze smuggling during prohibition. His children and grandchildren never earned anything in the real world of producing yet they are revered by the evil media.

  12. It's the hive mentality. No thinking necessary. As I like to say, "unencumbered by the thought process".

  13. Do they want us to believe that someone who made the kind of money the Trump family has made doesn't get audited every year by the IRS? Do they want us to believe the IRS is too incompetent to find fraud during their investigations? Do they expect us to believe that the deductions claimed aren't legal under existing tax laws of the time?
