Trump And Mar-A-Lago: This Is Not America
Trump And Mar-A-Lago: This Is Not America
‘THIS IS NOT AMERICA’
I am so mad I could take a bite out of an M1A1 Abrams tank and spit nails. An ignorant, arrogant, small-minded jealous Judge by the name of Arthur Engoron stripped former President Donald Trump of his business licenses and ordered the Trump Organized be dissolved ahead of the ridiculous, made-up fraud charges brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James. The omnipotent, omniscient, real estate expert Judge Engoron valued the magnificent Mar-a-Lago at only $18 million. This judge despises Donald Trump and has looked for every possible way to attempt to humiliate Trump, his businesses, his attorneys, his colleagues and his family. I get that. I, also, get why my fellow Conservatives DESPISE DJT. He’s simply not our kind, dear (NOKD). He’s a beast. He is vulgar. He’s a barbarian. He rants. He taps out all-cap screeds. He’s not fit to occupy the Oval Office where Ronald Reagan deigned to serve Our Country.
Only $18 million. Heck, Trump paid about $10 million when he bought it 38 years ago.
In an attempt to destroy my father and kick him out of New York, a Judge just ruled that Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach Florida, is only worth approximate “$18 Million dollars”… Mar-a-Lago is speculated to be worth we’ll over a billion dollars making it arguably the most valuable… pic.twitter.com/b0U6J5ykWJ

Part of the problem is that Judge
Einstein Engoron doesn’t know the difference between assessed value, appraised value and market value. All three of these can be wildly, wildly different. From the Palm Beach Daily News, last year:
Former President Donald Trump’s taxes have jumped 13% over last year for his multiple properties in Palm Beach County, including The Mar-a-Lago Club, according to the 2022 bills mailed Monday by the local tax collector’s office.
The latest taxes on Trump’s 10 properties in the county total about $1.7 million, compared to the $1.5 million he was charged last year. That’s according to an analysis of his bills by the Palm Beach Daily News, the first media outlet to report the former president’s tax obligations in the county for 2022.

Like thousands of other county taxpayers, Trump watched his property values skyrocket over the past couple of years, thanks to the real estate boom that began shortly after the coronavirus pandemic made local headlines in early 2020.
The latest bills were figured on values set Jan. 1 after real estate sales rode a bullet train in 2021. Across the county, taxable property values rose nearly 15% from 2021 to 2022 to $255.15 billion, according to county Property Appraiser Dorothy Jacks’ office.
Combined, the tax bills mailed to Trump’s property-ownership companies are $196,349 higher than last year’s.
For all the ignoramuses out there, the goal is to keep your tax assessment super low and your market appraisal, high, high high. Growing up lower middle class, I remember my Mother going to the Tax Assessor’s office to complain if the assessment went up at all. I am pretty sure that Trump knows a tiny bit more than my late Mother about real estate.
Trump borrowed a lot of money to build his portfolio. The banks did their own appraisals before lending him the money . DJT paid everyone back. If that’s fraud, y’all are screwed BIGLY. I don’t expect Conservatives to understand high-stakes real estate. I profess that I do not. I do expect that you will understand your own portfolio. Shite. There are those of you who hate Donald Trump with every fiber of your being. You would be thrilled to see him put away so that YOU don’t have to be associated with HIM (Bill Kristol and Jonah Goldberg).
The news readers who report this are just as bad. They don’t betray any emotion or skepticism as they read that Trump defrauded banks and insurers while overinflating his wealth and the value of his holdings. Those poor, innocent banks and insurers who were too naive to do their own appraisals.
My stars and garters. What they heck is wrong with people? This is not just election interference. This is unAmerican. I don’t want any candidate to drop out. They should all stay in until the last possible moment. Vote for your preferred candidate. I have mine. I won’t tell your candidate to quit. You leave my candidate alone. You can love your candidate and still recognize what has been done to mine for six years. Trump has had a colonoscopy scope up his backside for six years and they have to make things up and break the rules to try and get him. Y’all are fine as frog’s hairs with that. You want my candidate to drop out and handle the cases against him.
For pity’s sake. No wonder we have such boneless chickens in elected positions. If Trump quits, the fascist Left wins. If that is what you want fine, let me know. I think his is election interference and not America at all.
