Tax Shelter Thursday

1a

Even as he attempts to retreat further into the shadows of dark money, Robert Mercer can’t hide.

The reclusive hedge fund billionaire recently turned over his political operations to other family members, but his outsized role in electing Donald Trump keeps reverberating. A cache of leaked documents known as the Paradise Papers and further reporting by the Guardian revealed on Tuesday that Mercer used secret offshore companies in Bermuda to avoid taxes and fund his efforts to sink Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Leaked documents and newly obtained public filings showed how the Mercer family built a $60m war chest for conservative causes inside their family foundation by using an offshore investment vehicle to legally avoid US tax. Among the gifts from the foundation was $4.7m the Mercers gave to the Government Accountability Institute run by Steve Bannon.

    Welcome to the MSM, the who’s buggering who news, where the top story is always someones sexcapades because we all know what sells advertising, the salacious slobberings of slow minded morons elevated to page one for self flagellation in the cesspool of slime.

    The above story is conspicuously absent from the MSM in the USA due to the involvement of media moguls in the aforementioned tax evasion schemes and the embarrassment it could provide to them.

    Fantasy sunset on the way to the Optometrist’s office to schedule an exam. Then back to the Birch & Barley for a blackened salmon dinner. Only took 43 minutes so far as I took the shortest route so as to arrive at the Optometrist’s before 5 pm.

      Thence along the path to the p. stairs, up and continued along College St. to Library Road, left there for the last climb to Bryan Hall. The concert began with a Bach concerto for violin and oboe in which the recently acquired harpsichord had a prominent part. A thing of beauty with a peaceable kingdom scene painted on the inside of the cover. The best was the 3rd of the four selections, the Rimsky-Korsakov Russian Easter Festival Overature.

      Afterwards a reception during which several people thanked me for the harpsichord. Then home for a daily total of 92 minutes.

      Day 5: 129+92=221 minutes.

      Deep red state “logic:….

      The Alabama state auditor, Jim Ziegler, a Moore ally, came to the embattled Republican’s defense, telling the Washington Examiner: “There is nothing to see here.”

      Ziegler went on to compare the allegations to biblical stories. “Also take Joseph and Mary,” he said. “Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus.”

      Sheesh! This is damage control?!
