Trump? That makes sense, he'd use it as a badge of honor and say it should not exist, but if it does, why not use it to our advantage?


09 North Orange Street in Wilmington is a nondescript two-story building, yet is home to Apple, American Airlines, Walmart and presidential candidates

There aren’t many things upon which Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump agree, especially as they court very different Delaware voters ahead of a primary on Tuesday. But the candidates for president share an affinity for the same nondescript two-storey office building in Wilmington. A building that has become famous for helping tens of thousands of companies avoid hundreds of millions of dollars in tax through the so-called “Delaware loophole”.

The receptionist at 1209 North Orange Street isn’t surprised that a journalist has turned up unannounced on a sunny weekday afternoon.

“You know I can’t speak to you,” she says. A yellow post-it note on her computer screen reads “MEDIA: Chuck Miller” with the phone number of the company’s director of corporate communications. Miller can’t answer many questions either, except to say that the company does not advise clients on their tax affairs.

The Guardian is not the first media organising to turn up at the offices of Corporation Trust Centre, and it’s unlikely to be the last.

I really really want somebody to bring this up, especially for Hillary who has been talking non stop about tax dodgers. Low and behold she's one of them.

So, two of the front runners for presidential election, are in fact traitors who would rather hide themselves and their affairs, than live within the systems that regular people have to adhere to, follow the rules of?

They are both stealing from the American people.

I have no doubt that this will make a nett difference of nothing, zero, to their chances in the presidential race, but it is important that as many people become aware of this as possible. The fact that the mainstream media will not be putting this information on billboards, and running pieces reminding people of the facts from now until the polling day itself, is just the cherry on top of this bilious layer cake of an election.

Doesn't surprise me one bit. Trump and the Clinton's have been friends for a while now and birds of a feather flock together. Those who think Trump cares about the American people more than Clinton are in denial. He's just as bad if not worse than Clinton is.

If people don't already know that Donald and Hillary are BOTH crooked politicians who use EVERY rule and loophole to their personal advantage, without ONE thought to how "the people" are being screwed, I can only think they are quite naive. Hillary is up to her eyeballs in corruption, just like most of the wealthy who run this plutocratic oligarchy under which we live. Donald just wants a seat at the same table and would continue to screw this country for his own gain.

I can't believe how fooled the people are this election season...

Sounds to me like the state of Delaware is screwing every other state.
They are the ones that created this loophole.

Like the the millions of Sanders supporters that funded the DNC on accident? I was one of them (research Sanders and he's terrible). All that money is going to Hillary and the DNC and establishment after Sanders gets done wasting it.

I think he's a good honest man, but also a complete idiot and candy ass. Letting Erica Garner make a video was the final nail in his coffin. Her father was a criminal (30x a criminal, not just loose smokes he was a dirt bag) and it just rubbed me the wrong way. Sanders is a meow. He acted like a meow when some black lives matter terrorists brigaded him, he's still a complete meow. He's not worthy of being president.

I don't want to support Trump. I do. What are my options? Hillary? El Rato? Sanders?

I don't want a meow for president. At this point I just don't want el Rato, but I don't want a andy ass socialist that donned some Dem. clothing or Hillary. So I'm pro Trump. It will be funny, and not sad old man, or c u next tuesday, or nutjob. I might just be having fun.

So Sanders is the "Good and honest Man" but you've decided to support one of the two known to be dishonest candidates instead because you "might just be having fun."

Got it. Makes perfect sense.

And you say Sanders is the problem??? Unbelievable!!!

You are the idiot if you can't see how genius Sanders was with the Black Lives Matter people at his rally. He let them have their say. Now, they don't bother him any more at any of his rallies. Idiot Trump, on the other hand, makes obnoxious comments and waves his hand and tells his goons to "get 'em out of here", and "I wish I could punch 'em in the face". How did that work out? They started coming in droves to protest his rallies to the point where he had to cancel one of them.

Trump is an idiot with a huge mouth that might start WWIII with some countries that don't like his big mouth.

Many businesses, especially banks, will incorporate in or use Delaware as their company's primary legal address.

People wondered why Joe Biden was chosen as Obama's VP.

The state doesnt carry many delegates, its not a swing state and its population is near the lowest in the US.

It was because Delaware is friendly to the banksters and it was a way of rewarding their minions.

That might be true, but to the OP...Everyone incorporates in Delaware...the states laws have been built around specifically facilitating incorporations. No state taxes, but the make their income via incorporation fees. Florida Oranges...Delaware Corporations..etc.

Why do so many corporations choose to incorporate in Delaware?www.newsworks.org...

To my point...ahem


THE ABOVE NETWORK, LLC is a business entity formed in Delaware and is a LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY (LLC) - GENERAL under local business registration law. Its registration number is 4366217 and according to the relevant government agency, it is of unknown status.

www.delawareco.org...

I have no issue with people bashing Hillary, but as always, the discourse is best served when it is done from a legitimate place.

They are ALL criminal tax dodgers and whatever, those in power, those global players, those ultrarich and their puppets like so called politicians, their secret services, their polices, their justice etc.

There is a war between rich and the people, and we all know about it.
It´s time for the people worldwide to step into the ring as fighters, and not as a sparring-dummies anymore, to fight back!

"They"(Live... xD) play cat and mouse with us, and we, the people, are the mouse.
But don´t forget that there innumerable mice all over the world, and if they are angry enough and unite, the greedy cats will be outnumbered in the shortest possible time. Even if they hide in their "cat-fortresses" , paying "uncle tom"-mice to protect them. There is just one earth, no place to hide for greedy, fat cats...

IF, if the stupid mice ever would unite instead of fighting each other, because of lies like that "right" and "left" thing, there is none, it´s a greedy cats and exploited mice thing! Or how they use to play the mice off against each other with spreading hate(via cats MSM) between worker and unemployed, old and young, poor and poorer, Killary or Dump believers or that "religious" fairytales followers, for example.

Just to make the mice blind to see the real reasons for everything that is wrong in the world right now, and guess what, it works, the mice are still too stupid, too brainwashed, too remote controlled, by greed and egoism, to wake up and see...

What's odd is Delaware has been Democrat controlled for a long time.

Ironic ?

or par for the course.

If you own a business you would know this. It is a tax haven in the US. Delaware makes tons each year.

Notable companies that hold offices at this location include Google, American Airlines, Apple Inc, General Motors, Coca-Cola, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Verizon Internet Services, and Deutsche Bank with about 430 of their more than 2,000 subsidiary companies and special purpose companies

So, it is ok for these companies to have done this for years but now an issue? This is for businesses. It is to save a business money. Do we not want to save businesses money so they can grow? This is not a US government issue either, it is a state issue.

Why is Sanders not on here? He has never owned a business. But, he wants me to personally pay about 18% more tax if he is elected. THAT is the issue. I do not care about business tax breaks or havens...I worry about my and my co-workers in the US paying more tax to support those who do not want to work hard.

If you are rich, and you have a government who is taking your money, what would you do? I know what I would do....

Compare this thread to the one about people losing food stamps. The demonisation of the poor and glorification of the rich is stark. The corporate msm has done one over you all, you

Hate the poor and idolise the rich. Sad, how people are so easily brain washed and can't even see further than the end of their own noses

This is the first of many people here learning about using Delaware to create a corporation?

Nothing new by a long shot.
