Storm Clouds ……..

Storm Clouds

What are we missing on this Stormy Daniels story? We see it as a former porn star playing the media to get money for a consensual affair that she says was one time in 2006.  She got paid $130,000 to not talk about it, but then Trump won. Now she sees a way to add a zero to the back of that and wants to talk about it? Why? She says her reputation was being besmirched.
Really? Your reputation? Didn’t that go with the enhancements you added, roles you played and choices you made years ago? Didn’t that go when you decided to sleep with Trump 12 years ago? And, reputation to who? Who knew who you were before you started speaking out? You think Stormy Daniels was a household name? In who’s house?

You will see — er — we mean, hear a lot from her the next month as the MSM plays her up. We repeat, the same MSM that saw no relevance in the stories of the Clinton accusers sees all truth from Stormy. Sorry we don’t. We see why Stormy was in the job she was.

This is not a  defense of Donald Trump. He made his choices and must live with the consequences of them. But a consensual relationship between him and Stormy (and likely a dozen others) is his issue and Melania’s. It’s not ours. What he does as President is.

The March for Our Lives

The theory is the next generation has found its voice, cause and issue. Maybe so, and limits on weapons of mass killing might be the right one. But please, stop with the falsehood that this will solve the school shooting issue. It is a piece, as the incident in Maryland proved last week. It is a total action that is necessary to protect our children and grandchildren. Even if the MSM doesn’t want to cover or say it, we need to yell it loud. Our children need us.
All the proof you need is the speech at the rally by the student who paused in silence for six minutes and twenty seconds. That was, she said, to mark the time the shooter had to do his deed. Exactly our point. The shooter in Maryland had seconds with a handgun because someone was there to stop him. What would he have done with six minutes and twenty seconds?

Trump Lawyers

Is anything easy with this President? Now the two lawyers he hired to replace John Dowd for his defense against the Mueller probe have resigned. Why? They had a conflict in the case because they were defending someone else. Does anyone know what they are doing at the WH?

International Affairs

No, not the Stormy Daniels kind in the dossier, these real events that impact us and the world.

First, the President has expelled 60 Russian diplomats in support of the English and the horrific poisoning attack in their land. The attacks and counter attacks with Russia are building as Putin becomes more and more dangerous on the world stage.

Second, did you see that the Chinese are sitting to discuss the tariffs imposed? If Trump can get these in place without a world wide counter then we will have avoided a very dangerous situation. Let’s hope so.

Last, as the pressure builds in the US with Mueller and Stormy, keep an eye on world events. Let’s hope there is not actions taken to divert news coverage. With Bolton joining the team the recommendations will be bolder. Keep a watch.

The Ratings

Check the numbers below for Thursday. Fox edges MSNBC and CNN pulls in double its normal audience.  Why? Anderson Cooper had his interview with the Playboy Bunny who was talking her relationship with Trump. Sex sells and you can expect more and more stories to emerge.
