The US Justice Department has finally ordered the release of Trump taxes and the truth of his dirty lies are about to be uncovered.

The Federal Government says Donald Trump's tax returns have to be turned over to Congress, which first requested them over a couple of years ago. Here’s how the stories were reported.~

Why does a billionaire space race have Branson and Bezos competing on spending millions on being first in outer space?

And why call it historic? This is not the first time billionaires burned through gobs of money and resources to accomplish something a monkey did 72 years ago. Wake up and face reality, folks.

Republican National Committee donors paid big money to hear twice-impeached and a two time loser liar in Palm Beach, the "new political power center" for the GOP.

This is the difference between Grift, to obtain money illicitly as in a confidence game and Graft, is the acquisition of some gain such as money in dishonest or questionable ways. These people made a ton of money while they were supposed to be focusing on serving the public.

The United States of America is showing its dark and ugly visage which may be a reason for serious concern in the near future.

This is a significant defeat for Trump, and we have the US Supreme Court to thank after declining to halt the turnover of his tax records in a New York state prosecution.

SCOTUS action is the culmination of a lengthy legal battle that had reached the high court once before. This second time puts his taxes on the firing line. 

This one is a one two punch and a hard blow because he had fought on so many fronts to keep his tax records shielded from view. The ongoing investigation the records are part of what could also be an issue for Trump in his after life.

MacKenzie Scott has managed to share her massive wealth to such a wonderful degree that she overshadowed and made the macho tech titans look like tightwads. So if she has it and wants to flaunt it, that’s her prerogative.
