Donald Trump has talked tough on ISIS for his entire campaign. After the border wall that he thinks Mexico will pay for, vague promises to bring back jobs onshore even though his own companies have done the opposite, one of his other “promises” has been to deal effectively with ISIS.
I’ve been hesitant to chime in on the Trump Tapes, thinking “What can I add that hasn’t already been said?”. With an eternity of time between now and election day, the revelations from about Trumps womanizing/penchant for sexual assaults will certainly get old.
After a long weekend of getting seared by the press and social media about his leaked 1995 tax returns, Donald Trump came out determined to shift the discussion elsewhere. And he did, by opening a never been tried before attack AGAINST our nations vets, by questioning the strength of those who returned from the battlefield with post-traumatic stress disorder.
Late Saturday night, the New York Times published the first page of several of Donald Trump’s tax returns that were filed in 1995. While his opponents claim triumph in establishing that Trump hasn’t been paying much in the way of taxes for many years. While anyone to the Left of Trump is calling this a victory, it needs to be emphasized that this almost certainly isn’t the information that Trump has been so desperate to hide from his supporters.
Debate night is upon us. Hillary versus Donald. Clinton versus Trump. America versus Russia. However you’d like to slice or dice it. Below are my suggested rules for tonights discourse. If you have any suggested changes or additions, please comment below or send me a Tweet!
Yesterday, in a stunning about-face, Texas Senator Ted Cruz declared that he is in fact a “servile puppy” who will endorse a man who lobbed insults at his wife and father.
Donald Trump suggests that he would institute nationwide “stop and frisk policing” to crack down on crime, a tactic already ruled unconstitutional.
The gods smiled down at Donald Trump last weekend, bestowing him with the gift of two terrorist incidents to further incite his supporters.

Donald Trump on October 27, 2015:
Super PAC’s are “one of the great scams of all time… it’s a disgrace that we have them”.
Donald Trump on March 10, 2016:
“These Super PACs are a disaster by the way, folks, very corrupt. It’s going to lead to a lot of disasters … There is total control of the candidates. I know it better than anybody that probably ever lived … I know the system far better than anybody else, and I know the system is broken. I’m the only one up here that’s going to be able to fix that system because that system is wrong.”
Donald Trump on September 1, 2016:
Yes, that’s correct. In less than a year, Donald Trump has gone from calling out SuperPAC’s as one of the greatest scams ever, to hiring Citizen United’s President David Bossie, the man most directly responsible the court case that allowed for their creation.
Nothing should come as a surprise. This is the person that decried “Hedge Fund guys“, and then went on to bring John Paulson onto his economic advisory team. At this rate, one can only assume that he’s putting out feelers to the head of the Islamic State to see if he’ll provide advice on how to best go after the group.
Here’s an idea for bringing about some sorely needed unity between the two parties, on January 20th, when
(Hillary Clinton) the next President takes office, I propose that (she) they immediately sit down with the leaders of the House and Senate to amend the 1978 Ethics in Government Act with a new “Trump Rule” to account for newly discovered inadequacies in financial disclosure requirements. Shouldn’t be too difficult, since he’s on the bad side of both parties.
