"Trumps refusal to disclose his taxes prompts clever legislation in California"


I’m confident that this will pass because it’s California. If Der Trumpenfuehrer runs for re-election in 2020, this will, no doubt, end up in court and he will wear his little fingers to the bone tweeting about it. New York is considering similar legislation.

President-elect Donald Trump got away with never releasing his tax returns, despite the fact that virtually all other presidential candidates have done so for the past 40 years. But two California state Senators are authoring legislation that they say would make such disclosure a requirement — if the candidates want their names to appear on California ballots.

State Senators Mike McGuire (D-Healdsburg) and Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) said that their bill is in direct response to Trump’s refusal to make his taxes public.

Wiener stated:

“The American public deserves to know that the individual they are selecting to be president will have their best interests at the heart of every decision, not the best interests of any business venture or investment fund. Requiring that this basic financial information be made available to voters will help build critical public trust.”

Or as McGuire put it, “This legislation will help make transparency great again.”

Take this article with caution as it's from LaRouchePub; haven't investigated author yet. But that it was published in 1987 is very damning.

I'd view this article with more skepticism, but it's backed up with mainstream outlets cited in rest of this thread and by events of 2016

It's a long thread with more information.

Nine Lessons of Russian Propaganda



https://twitter.com/SolidBlue2012/status/812449348294426624



5. Headlines are more important than reality, especially while first impressions are forming.

During recent protests by Russian truck drivers, Russia's transport minister staged a meeting with counterfeit truckers before the media. They also seem to have invented Syrian opposition leaders with whom they held negotiations.

It did not matter that the "humanitarian aide" convoys to Eastern Ukraine were eventually revealed to the whole world as ammunition resupplies. For two weeks coverage of the war focused on Russia's "humanitarian aide."

First impressions are known to be extremely sticky. They persist even after subsequent evidence is conclusive. Consequently, Russian propaganda seems to fight hard for the first impression and then relent.

When opposition politician Boris Nemtsov was assassinated, they quickly spun several elaborate theories which played on Russian news.

Their propaganda about neo-Nazis dominated coverage of Ukraine's revolution, even after multiple statements and an open letter from the leaders of Ukraine's Jewish community. In support of the Nazi narrative, Russian state television even reported fake results of Ukraine's 2014 election, stating that now-President Poroshenko lost the race to Right Sector leader Dmytro Yarosh. (In reality Yarosh received about 1.5% of the vote.) Obviously, anybody paying attention would find out this was nonsense within days, if not hours, but being proved wrong does not seem to matter to them.

Perhaps the consider distant half-interested parties as their target audience -- people who cannot devote enough attention to the issue. Such people will see an initial chaos of contradictory information and conclude the situation is too complicated to understand, and that the truth is probably somewhere in the middle.

They're remarkably successful. No matter audacious, Russian lies delivered from semi-official sources succeed in muddying the waters, and preventing the formation of clear impressions that recognize the reality of what is happening.

R. Maddow: Melania suing ridiculous blogger as a way to stop media

THE RACHEL MADDOW SHOW 12/19/16
Melania a model for Trump media crackdown?
Rachel Maddow reports on Melania Trump's defamation lawsuit against a conspiracy theorist writer, helmed by the lawyer who represented Hulk Hogan against Gawker, in the broader context of Donald Trump war on the media. Duration: 6:08

Video: http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow/watch/melania-a-model-for-trump-media-crackdown-837199939752

BTW: Since she is suing over what the blogger said about her being so depressed over the plagiarized speech she gave and basically disappearing at that time, am hoping we get to the bottom of mystery woman : Meredith MCIver!

Trump on fomenting religious wars: 'Who said that?' Reporter: 'You did'

Well, this doesn’t bode well for the nation’s future. Here’s Trump briefly answering press questions on Wednesday. Specifically, where the reporter asks about his statement on the attack in Berlin:

Video here: https://www.dailykos.com/story/2016/12/21/1613380/-Trump-on-fomenting-religious-wars-Who-said-that-Reporter-You-did

Reporter: "Your comments about the truck attack in Berlin being against Christians, do think that this might….”

Trump: "Say it again?

Reporter: "The attack in Berlin being an attack on Christians….”

Trump: "Who said that? When was that said?

Reporter: I believe you said it in a press release….”


Yep, he did. In a statement released just yesterday he said “ISIS and other Islamist terrorists continually slaughter Christians in their communities and places of worship as part of their global jihad.” So there you go.
