Update: Trump’s taxes are a thing? Hillary and Bill Clinton donated Bill’s used underwear to avoid paying taxes (old shoes, old shower curtains, old jogging shorts too). So why does Hillary2016 think Trump’s tax losses in 1995 are a problem? Trump lost about a billion dollars back then (which proves Trump is a billionaire contra Mark Cuban’s assertions) and legally spread his losses over future years. Who wouldn’t do that?
At Tuesday’s debate, tax cutter Mike Pence can point out that the government wastes so much money most Americans want to pay the least taxes legally possible and thereby attack Candy Kaine – the tax and spend loser. Stop wasting our money and Americans will feel less hesitant to pay taxes. Mike Pence, if the topic is broached by tax increaser Candy Kaine at the debate, can note how billionaire Hillary2016 supporters Warren Buffet and others shelter their tax liabilities with every scheme imaginable. Hypocrites.
The problem is not Trump’s taxes, the problem is how our tax dollars are wasted. It’s time for a change and Mike Pence has a chance to make the case tomorrow.
This coming Tuesday, VP nominee Mike Pence has a chance to do Donald J. Trump two solid favors. First, as a conventional politician, Pence will demonstrate how a debate strategy carried out with message discipline can be both powerful and the theme developed with focus to open like flower petals on a beautiful bloom. Second Mike Pence can set the table for the second presidential debate by linking many of Donald Trump’s critiques of Hillary Clinton to Candy Kaine.
What is Candy Kaine? Rather, WHO is Candy Kaine? Candy Kaine is not Tim Kaine’s wife. Candy Kaine is not a clever union of Candy Crowley and Tim Kaine. Kandy Caine, er, Candy Kaine is the man we wrote about in July:
Is the #SystemRigged? Tim Kaine received an $18,000 Caribbean vacation for free and legally. Is the #SystemRigged? How many free $18,000 vacations have you received for free? Is our political class “crooked”? Is the #SystemRigged to benefit the political class overlords at the expense of the taxpayer citizens? You betcha!
Former Governor, current U.S. Senator, promoted to candidate for Vice President, Tim Kaine, will speak tonight to the Dims in convention. Tim Kaine won’t speak about the corrupt, rigged system, because Tim Kaine is a beneficiary of the corrupt, rigged system:
WASHINGTON — Barr Pharmaceuticals gave Gov. Tim Kaine of Virginia a ride on a private jet to a meeting in Aspen, Colo., at a time in 2006 when it was lobbying him over issues related to its drug sales, state records show.
Dominion Resources, Virginia’s largest electric utility and a lobbying force in the state’s capital, Richmond, picked up the tab for a trip that Mr. Kaine took that same year to the college basketball Final Four tournament (and a funeral) in Indianapolis, according to the records.
McCandlish Holton PC, a law and lobbying firm that represented Virginia’s small vineyards and worked closely with Mr. Kaine’s office to create a new system for distributing wine produced by the vineyards, presented Mr. Kaine with four cases of wine in 2007, the records show, the same year he signed the legislation into law.
Under Virginia’s lax ethics rules at the time, the gifts, which had a total value of more than $160,000, were all legal as long as they were disclosed.
Is the system rigged? Picture yourself with a mask on as you rob a bank. After the robbery you disclose you are the criminal. No problem, keep the money, you disclosed your crime. System rigged.
Donald J. Trump says the system is rigged. Hillary Clinton does all within her power to prove Trump correct with her choice of Tim Kaine:
“It would be naïve to think a pharmaceutical company like Teva was not interested in maintaining access to the governor as a result of a gift of that size,” said Andrew P. Miller, a former Democratic attorney general in Virginia, who now works as an energy industry lawyer and lobbyist, referring to Teva Pharmaceuticals, which bought Barr in 2008.
Donald J. Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, wasted little time in starting to attack Mr. Kaine, branding him on Friday night as “corrupt Kaine” and continuing with the criticism during a Sunday morning news interview.
“He took over $160,000 of gifts. And they said, well they weren’t really gifts. They were suits, and trips and lots of different things. Over $160,000,” Mr. Trump said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I think to me it is a big problem.”
The system is rigged. The system is corrupt. Emails once again provide proof. The more corrupt a politician is, the higher he rises:
Corruption is the mark of Kaine. Kaine must get his candy. Candy Kaine gets his goodies in the corrupt system Donald J. Trump is fighting against.
Governor Mike Pence is not enamoured of political invective so he might not be willing to call the corrupt VP candidate “Candy Kaine”. But perhaps Mike Pence with his eerie resemblance to Race Bannon might mention all the candy Kaine has licked and loved.
At the next debate, Candy Kaine will try to goad Mike Pence on social issues. We suspect that Mike Pence will exhibit message discipline and respond with a judo style defense and flip every attack back to the candy from the corrupt, rigged system. Mike Pence will also talk about how he cut taxes and how Candy Kaine left his mark with tax increases.
Mike Pence should talk about how the system is rigged against working Americans. Mike Pence should talk about how Donald J. Trump is against the rigged system.
Mike Pence at the next debate will exhibit message discipline then pass the ball to the lead player so he can score big at the next presidential debate.
