Yeah, that was quite perplexing.

I found this article to be informative regarding the Hunter Biden Ukraine situation:

The prosecutor was investigating the company Hunter Biden was on the board of.  If having Hunter Biden on your board gets the American Vice President to threaten to hold back a Billion dollars unless the Ukraine fires the prosecutor who is investigating your company, 50K a month was money well spent.  :raincloud:

I presume the allegation is that the reason Biden insisted on the prosecutor being fired was that the prosecutor was doing an investigation into the company Hunter was on the board of and Biden wanted to ensure that that investigation didn't uncover some sort of wrongdoing (that Biden was aware of)? What if Biden wanting the prosecutor to be fired and the prosecutor being in the middle of an investigation of the company Hunter Biden was working for are unrelated?

Read up on Hunter Biden, he has made millions off the Biden name and the influence his father can provide.

And Trump's kids?

And unrelated, I assume you've seen this.

I hadn't. I read that the prosecutor he wanted fired was not doing his job in rooting out corruption, and that was what he was hired to do, or something along those lines. What I don't understand is if this was supposed to be some big "gotcha" moment, what was the occasion that he was freely sharing this information with all those other people seemingly not surprised by his admission? My impression is that this is designed to sound like something that is bad by leaving out context.

Since you brought up the issue with a president or presidential candidate having possible conflicts of interest in their finances.  What are your thoughts on the Biden and Biden Family situations with Ukraine and China?

I'm not familiar with the specifics of the China stuff. Regarding the Ukraine stuff, my understanding is that Hunter Biden, Joe Biden's son, was employed by some Ukrainian company, I believe something in the energy sector, making like $50,000 a month or something crazy like that. I don't know what his position was, but I remember reading that he didn't appear to have any qualifications for the job he received. It sounds fishy, and that they probably wanted something in return out of giving him that job. What that is, and whether there's any sort of evidence of anything actually being reciprocated, I don't know. Didn't he keep the job for at least a couple years after Biden was no longer the VP though?

I suppose I didn't see it as an ultimatum so much as I wanted to clarify that I wanted someone (it didn't have to be you - other people read this thread) to address those questions specifically. I brought up the topic, so I figured it was a good time to set the focus on what my relevant concerns and/or interests were. The questions I asked are very pertinent to the tax returns situation, which is a very big deal from my perspective (which I tried to expound on through those questions I was asking). You don't have to talk about it if you don't want to. It was something that crossed my mind weeks ago, and now that it's back in the headlines a bit (with the Supreme Court currently hearing arguments related to them), it reminded me that I've never asked for you guys' opinion on it. Most here seem to have a much different perspective of Trump than I do, so I thought it would be interesting to see potentially different perspectives on the tax return thing.

Edit: I'm just now seeing that quadz responded to my original post, I hadn't noticed it before.

Edit2: I had your attention at that time, and you weren't giving me what I wanted, so that's why I clarified that I wanted you to answer any of those questions. Maybe I should have said please :P

No, no thank you, I won't answer your non-thought provoking uninteresting questions directly :lolsign:

That's mighty shitty of you. There was one direct question asked of me, and I honestly didn't see the point the Trump admin was trying to make in that video. I answered anyway.

Your reply has left me frustrated and it honestly makes me want to not chat with you guys anymore. Perhaps I should leave you guys to your echo chamber that you had going before I decided to engage.

Any chance you (or anyone else) could directly answer any of the questions I asked?

You're not satisfied with looking at the trump tax return theater for what it really is?  :exqueezeme:
Please answer any of my questions or tell me why they're not valid.

He's the first filthy rich pre-presidency president in the modern era.

More special privileges for the filthy rich I guess. Filthy rich? Pssshhhawww... Why should he have to play by the same rules?

Any chance you (or anyone else) could directly answer any of the questions I asked?

I'm not sure if you guys have already discussed this, but how do you guys feel about Trump and his taxes?

What value do you see in prospective presidential candidates releasing their tax returns?

What do you make of Trump being the first candidate in the last 40 or more years refusing to release his taxes?

Do you think his refusal is at all motivated by something he feels would make him less electable if released?

Do you feel comfortable with allowing an individual that seeks to hold the greatest power over us as citizens to have 'secrets', so-to-speak, or potential conflicts of interest that may be revealed in tax return documents?

Feel free to propose questions to me about my opinion (I think all presidential candidates should be required, by law, to release a number of years of tax returns - nobody intending to lead the country I live in should get a pass on whether or not they're trustworthy in that regard).

"I've Seen Trump's Tax Returns and You Should, Too"

"The Supreme Court can help to make financial transparency a requirement, now that this presidency has demonstrated we can’t rely on tradition."

However, I have to point out that I thought this thing would have accelerated more with all the dipshits not listening and willingly spreading the virus.

Give it a month. It seems like the dipshits are getting confident (not based on anything that should actually give them any, though) and deciding it's now safe to commingle.

They are under the impression that it's a half-way clever propaganda video to brainwash the feeble-minded people on the right.

The video is catered towards those on the right for a reason though (whatever that reason may be).
