Trump’s terrorists already threatening election workers

I point you to Maddow’s book to educate you on Trump’s fascism, you refuse to read it, and you then whine that no one is pointing you to an explanation of his fascism.

You’re a textbook ignoramus.
You showed your ignorance here >>


and 1000 other places :D

Wanna take one of my Quizzes for Liberals, to find out how much you dont know ? Offer also for any other information-deprived victims of leftwing OMISSION media.

You’re wasting time here when you should be getting psychotherapy.

Did he lie? Did he have one appraisal for real estate taxes and another for the banks?
Did he get a lower interest rate on loans?
Everyone does. It's standard practice. He got the rate he got - different people get different rates. Are any of the lenders complaining?

If anything that likely makes it MORE valuable, thanks to the tax advantages that structure provides.
Tax advantages for a social club?

That’s ridiculous, of course, but irrelevant. You compared a home with a social club. Got any social club comparisons?

If James’s experts grossly undervalued Mar-A-Lago (as opposed to Trump grossly overvaluing it as fits the pattern), does that mean it was legal for Trump to lie about the number of stories in a building or the square footage?

Pebble Beach consists of numerous golf courses, resort facilities, and extensive acreage. Mar-a-Lago is a social club. With far less acreage, no such facilities, no golf course and imposing deed restrictions.

Try again.
Would you prefer to use revenues? Pebble Beach's revenue is estimated at $250 million - Mar-a-Lag's is about 1/10 of that. What is 1/10 of $3.5 billion?

Pebble Beach:

Here's what Pebble Beach stock from 1999 would be worth today (golf.com)

It was valued at $3.2 to $3.7 billion in 2020. Mar-a-Lago is about 1/8 the size of Pebble Beach. Do. The. Math.
Pebble Beach is one of, if not the best Golf Course in America if not the world. The property is in Carmel California one of the great destination resorts on earth. Comparing Mara Lago to Pebble Beach is like comparing KFC to a 5 star restaurant. You will not find Mara Lago on any list of the 100 greatest golf courses in America or the world. You will find Pebble Beach around the top of any such list. Pebble Beach is worth at least 10 times more that Mara LARDO…maybe more than that. Do the math….LOL

You can’t address this by just making up numbers like Trump did. But if you do, you have to include both income and expenses.

Mar-a-Lago doesn’t even have a golf course. And it’s a fraction of the size of the Pebble Beach properties.

Not necessarily - business valuation is based off of what the new owner thinks THEY can make off of it, not what it currently makes.

Besides, the lender just destroyed James' case:

David Williams, who directly worked on at least one of several loans obtained by Trump over several decades, testified on Tuesday in Manhattan that it's "atypical, but not entirely unusual" for a bank to internally slash a client's stated asset values by 50% and approve a loan anyway, as they did with Trump, Bloomberg reports.

"It just depends on the circumstances," said Williams, a managing director at the bank.


Deutsche Bank, which loaned hundreds of millions of dollars to Trump for properties in Miami, Chicago and Washington, cut his stated net worth in 2011 and 2012 from about $4.2 billion to $2.3 billion, according to internal bank credit memos. The same documents indicated the bank approved the loans anyway because it expected them to generate a profit based on Trump’s history of successful developments and other criteria.
Trump, who denies wrongdoing and claims the case is politically motivated, is calling to the stand this week four current and former Deutsche Bank employees — including the family’s former private banker Rosemary Vrablic — as part of his defense case, seeking to flip the script on the state’s version of events. -Bloomberg
The testimony completely undermines AG James' premise, that Trump defrauded the German bank.

"As part of our due diligence, we subject a client’s asset value to adjustments," said Williams. "It’s part of our underwriting process we apply it to every client regardless of what’s reported."
"Is a difference of opinion in asset values between the client and the bank a disqualifying factor to extend credit?" Trump attorney Jesus Suarez asked Williams.
"No," he replied. "Why not?"
"It’s just a difference of opinion," Williams continued.
"I think we expect clients to provide information to be accurate."

You’re not paying attention. Again, a business’s worth is determined by both revenue and expenses. Your goofy post above referenced only revenues. Try to absorb that.

Your hooey about the evidence in the trial is no less goofy. Just a cherry-picked statement you use to defend Trump’s egregious lying about his assets. One banker’s thoughts do not legalize Trump’s rampant fraud.
