WATCH: Hillary Clinton Speaks To Empty Pews In African-American Church

Once again Hillary Clinton finds her racially-driven campaign efforts contrasted against lackluster black audience.  This time in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Last month, Hillary Clinton gave the key note address to the National Baptist Convention in Kansas City.  There were 20,000 convention attendees for the four day conference, yetless than 3,000 attended the key note address.

Beyond the terrible optics, the lack of enthusiasm stunned the campaign.  However, the media provided cover, and the Kansas City story never gained the appropriate, or representative, attention.  Two days later, trying to gain racial campaign traction, Hillary Clinton delivered her antagonistic “they’re racists”/”basket of deplorables” remarks.

Well, yesterday it was déjà vu all over again.

FLASHBACK: The New York Times Crowned Donald Trump 'The Comeback King' After $1 Billion Tax Loss

Crowning the Comeback King

Published: October 25th, 1995 

Though there are still four years to go in the 90's, business and government leaders in New York honored Donald J. Trump yesterday for pulling off what they called "the comeback of the decade."

Mr. Trump, the developer who came to epitomize opulent wealth during the 80's before tumbling into deep financial trouble, has managed to erase much of his debt and is moving ahead with major projects at a time other developers are idling.

Judging from the attention showered on him yesterday at the Union League Club, some of New York's civic and business leaders are quite captivated by Mr. Trump, despite the financial uncertainties that still surround some of his properties.

REPORT: New York Times Didn't Pay Taxes In 2014

REPORT: New York Times Didn't Pay Taxes In 2014

The New York Times has excited the Clinton campaign and the rest of the media with a revelation that Republican nominee Donald Trump declared a $916 million loss in 1995 that might have resulted in him not paying taxes in some subsequent years.

The implication, reinforced by CNN’s Jake Tapper on State of the Union on Sunday morning, is that Trump “avoided” paying taxes, when in fact his tax liability was zero.

But the Times itself has “avoided” paying taxes — in 2014, for example.

As Forbes noted at the time:

"… for tax year 2014, The New York Times paid no taxes and got an income tax refund of $3.5 million even though they had a pre-tax profit of $29.9 million in 2014. In other words, their post-tax profit was higher than their pre-tax profit. The explanation in their 2014 annual report is, “The effective tax rate for 2014 was favorably affected by approximately $21.1 million for the reversal of reserves for uncertain tax positions due to the lapse of applicable statutes of limitations.” If you don’t think it took fancy accountants and tax lawyers to make that happen, read the statement again."
