We closed out the week with Bob Cardoza from "Robert Cardoza Live" with and David Leach of "The Strident Conservative" on issues pertinent to their respective fields of interest. Bob discussed the fallacies associated with the narrative from the left Donald Trump has not paid taxes in 18 years by giving us an in-depth analysis as to how it came to be Trump paid 38 million in 2005, highlighting how his income and deductions were figured. The conversation became quite lively
as we debated the legality of the return being made public with Bob stating he thought it was legal to publish while Joe and I took the other view. Next, we put David on the hot seat regarding his criticism of Defense Secretary Jame Mattis' choice of Anne Patterson as undersecretary, given her past support of the Muslim Brotherhood and Donald Trump's seemingly apparent walking back of his promise to support Israel unequivocally. While the choice of Patterson raises questions as to why Mattis would have wanted her Trump's position on Israel does seem to have soften and perhaps even taken a place on his back burner, we speculated perhaps Trump wants prioritize domestic issues first and wait for appointments to finish before moving on Israel.
