Let’s start with the Washington Post/NY Times headline that “Mueller complained that Barr’s letter did not capture the context of the probe”.
Great theater for sure. Except for two things.
First, in the article they said Mueller did not disagree with the findings.
Second, the whole report has been out for weeks now. Everyone can read it. So covering up is what they are implying now? It’s not like no one has seen the full report. They’re acting and reporting like it was secret.
Next, have you seen some states (blue ones) are trying to pass regulations that say you cannot be on their presidential ballot without releasing your taxes? It won’t hold up but another illustration of there is something with Trump we must expose.
Now on the other side the President is going to court to prevent Deutsche Bank from sharing his financial information with Congress.
We’ve always believed any chance to get the President was in his finances, so you can see why this is being pursued.
The question is, on what grounds are they pursuing the records? In America don’t you need a reason to do this other than a desire to get someone?
Yesterday Democratic congressional leaders said President Trump agreed to aim for a $2 trillion infrastructure package in a meeting. A White House statement didn’t mention a $2 trillion agreement.
The question here is where is the money coming from? Senator Schumer said the President agreed to present ideas on funding in a few weeks. Really? You mean it is the President only? Congress gets only to spend?
We see where they agree infrastructure needs, but can’t see any way they agree on funding. Raise the gas tax? That could be a partial idea, but would be against Republican principles. Let’s see.
Healthcare will be a major issue in the 2020 election. We have long stated there is no way to cover 40 million for free and reduce costs. Obamacare tried to force healthy individuals to buy insurance to offset some of the costs, but even that is done now.
While Democrats have the edge on this issue their 2020 candidates now disagree. Joe Biden plans to build upon the Affordable Care Act. Sen. Bernie Sanders backs Medicare for All. Sen. Kamala Harris wants Medicare for All, too, but would keep some pieces of the current setup. They will have to hash this out over the primaries and Republicans need a plan.
American citizens will have to answer this and the direction of the nation with their ballots. How are they feeling? We know that the President’s popularity lingers in the 40’s. This mostly due to the negative press he gets and creates for himself. One barometer though was in the Rasmussen poll results released yesterday. It is telling:
“Americans are feeling better about the future than they have in over 12 years of regular surveying” they reported.
The survey found that 54% of Likely U.S. Voters now say America’s best days are in the future. This is the first time a majority of voters has expressed this sentiment since November 2006. Since then the average for this question was in the 30’s.
They also found only 28% now think the country’s best days are in the past. This is a new low. As recently as May 2017, this figure stood at 52%.
That number is not one that says the nation will change direction. Now, it’s a long way to 2020.
Is there media bias? Think about this. Remember the astounding 3.2% GDP growth reported this week? It was big news, right? Do you know that CBS and ABC news failed to report it that evening? NBC covered it for ten seconds.
Here’s another example of bias in America today. LPGA golfer Lexi Thompson played golf over the weekend with the President. A picture was tweeted out. You know what happened? The comments back were so fierce and “hurtful” that she is taking a break from social media now.
It used to be playing with the President was the honor of a lifetime.
2020 the voters must decide what America is today.
|This week will bring the first-ever congressional hearings on|
Medicare for All—Democrats’ proposed government-run health care—and a long-awaited Congressional Budget Office report on how it could be set up and financed. The push may put Democratic presidential contenders in an awkward spot: Many aren’t so sure now is the right time to campaign for such a major overhaul, and the mixed messages risk confusing voters.
