Media ignoring record corporate profits and zero income taxes with rebates???

Has anyone seen many news stories of the effects of the Republican tax cuts and companies record profits and paying zero income taxes now? I saw an article a couple days ago about NetFlix and posted a thread, and today I posted a thread about Amazon and it was taken down and locked because it was "old" news, although I had never seen anything about it.

It seems to me our media should be pounding it home that the Republican tax plan is a complete disaster. If there is a national emergency it is that the federal treasury is being raided by corporate entities who are contributing nothing and taking millions from taxpaying American workers?

Why are there not endless stories on these record profits and zero corporate taxes?

The tech giant reportedly used various tax breaks and credits to claim a $129 million rebate on $11 billion in profits last year.

How's that Republican tax cut working for you? No wonder we can't have nice things...

How broken is our government, can it be fixed? Placeholders for Lobbyists?


I'd hate to take this needed money away from these homeless people. I know how much it means to them, but it it so sleazy to know these rich bastards can't even stand in line to do their job. Can't even stand in a frigging line and they make hundreds of thousands a year, and can't even stand on their own feet.

Western Media Fall in Lockstep for Cheap Trump/Rubio Venezuela Aid PR Stunt


The Trump administration’s now completely overt effort to overthrow Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro had a very successful public relations effort this week, as major Western media outlets uniformly echoed its simplistic, pre-packaged claim that the Venezuelan government was heartlessly withholding foreign aid:

I don't know if FAIR is considered a reputable mainstream source on DU, but they cite such in making their case. I believe we are being seriously misled on what is going on in Venezuela. I'm 66 and I feel I've been down this rabbit hole before. I could be wrong.

I had this in Late Breaking News, but one member with a ton of posts said it should probably be in General Discussion so I moved it here, if anyone would like to discuss.

I was right... It was the Bezos mistress and brother...


Aw you guys and gals... thanks for the hearts!!! Overwhelmed.

tRump working hard for America!!!

14 tweets already today and we've still 5 hours to go. The man is working his tiny, chubby, little thumbs to the nub for us today. Amazing!!!

Republican Tax Plan Horror Story - NetFlix +$845 millon profit / $0 taxes / $22 million tax rebate!

Plus the service’s most popular plan will increase from $11 to $13 per month for HD streaming. Netflix’s most expensive plan, which offers 4K content and up to four simultaneous streams on different devices, will increase from $14 to $16. And the service’s basic plan, which doesn’t offer HD, will raise from $8 to $9.

This is amazing!!!

Doesn't seem to hard to figure out how Pecker got the pictures...

Bezos looks like he was set up from the start.
Girlfriend Lauren Sanchez was local news personality for Fox. Not Fox News, but Fox corporation.
Her brother, Michael Sanchez (https://heavy.com/news/2019/01/lauren-sanchez-brother-michael-sanchez/), is a huge tRump supporter who Roger Stone says is a friend of his.
We all know who Roger Stone is.
David Pecker is well known.
David Pecker is well known to do favors for Donald Trump.
Donald Trump hates Jeff Bezos and the Washington Post.

So, could Lauren Sanchez have been set up to have an affair with Jeff Bezos by Roger Stone and her brother? Could Lauren Sanchez simply have given Pecker the pictures and texts? No hacking needed? This looks like a simple Roger Stone dirty trick.

Just caught up on the Bezos/Pecker story. Why isn't Pecker in jail for attempted blackmail?

That seems pretty clear to me... wow.
