Libs Celebrate Guilty Verdict Against Trump Org In Tax Fraud Case But Miss One Key Detail…

Written by K. Walker on December 7, 2022

The “Resistance” Leftists are popping the champagne corks because they have finally managed to get something to stick to Teflon Don… or did they?

Donald J. Trump wasn’t even charged. This was an investigation into the massive Trump Organization, not one individual.

With the continued politicization of businesses, the siloing of the left and right, and divided consumer bases, this may not be the win that the left thinks it is.

Still, after years of investigations and harassment, the Dems have finally scored a win against Trump courtesy of the New York Attorney General Letitia James.

From the New York Times:

Donald J. Trump’s family real estate business was convicted on Tuesday of tax fraud and other financial crimes, a remarkable rebuke of the former president’s company and what prosecutors described as its “culture of fraud and deception.”
The conviction on all 17 counts, after more than a day of jury deliberations in State Supreme Court in Manhattan, resulted from a long-running scheme in which the Trump Organization doled out off-the-books luxury perks to some executives: They received fancy apartments, leased Mercedes-Benzes, even private school tuition for relatives, none of which they paid taxes on.

The AG is now crowing over the win.

James is a partisan hack who has said publicly many, many times that her singular focus would be on Donald Trump.

Leftists couldn’t resist celebrating the news.

“We’ve got him now!” they cry.

While the NY Times says that the guilty verdict is a “highly public reckoning for the Trump Organization, forever branding it as a felonious enterprise,” it also admits something else…

Nine paragraphs into the article, the Times reveals that the investigation into 15 years worth of finances of the Trump family’s real estate business, yielded a maximum penalty that would be a “rounding error” to the Trump Organization.

The conviction on charges of tax fraud, a scheme to defraud, conspiracy and falsifying business records is hardly a death sentence for the Trump Organization. The maximum penalty it faces is $1.62 million, a rounding error for Mr. Trump, who typically notched hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue during his presidency.

Yossi Gestetner, political commentator and member of the Orthodox Jewish Affairs Public Council, tweeted that it was “quite amazing” that after years of scrutiny by a politicized office that all that they could find was the books being “off” by around $106k/year.

As the Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles pointed out, while the left is celebrating the verdict and “Yaas Qween-ing” Tish James, they’re ignoring one pretty significant detail… how much did this years-long partisan investigation and court case cost to get the Trump Organization to pay what amounts to a “rounding error”?

The New York Times can explain how devastating this is for the Trump Organization and the former President — who wasn’t even charged — all it wants to, but it seems a bit disingenuous when they’re simultaneously trying to rehabilitate the reputation of crypto scammer and Democrat donor, Sam Bankman-Fried.

If the Left didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have standards at all.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
