Suddenly It All Seems Negative:
Doesn’t it seem with all the news reports that suddenly everything seems negative? The market is tanking. Tech stocks are imploding. Amazon announces two new headquarters and the reports are negative. Apple is losing shareholder value daily. Facebook can’t get out of its own way.
The President seems quiet and there are more administrative personnel changes. The Democrats in the house are making loud noises. The Republican gains in the senate are being wilted away. Arizona was decided, and it becomes with Nevada a Democratic gain. Florida is still counting and Georgia is up in the air. The President got bad press for his European meetings. The world leaders are against him. Teresa May faces a no confidence vote as she tries to implement Brexit.
It just seems the optimism of a month ago has completely reversed. Add, we expect some Mueller noise soon and the drumbeat gets louder.
The best hope for a reversal is a strong holiday sales season. That may happen, and hopefully the new congress investigations won’t impede that.
Some News Report Thoughts:
We say again, the President and administration should stop with the “fake news” and call it “Bias News”. The news is biased, not fake. It is what they cover, how they explain it, the facial expressions they use and tone that makes it biased.
At the border have you seen the people sitting on the wall and standing on the Mexican side ready to come over? Where are the women and children the MSM told us were in the caravan? All we see are young males. Are they reporting that?
Voter turnout in the midterms is estimated to top 49% of eligible voters, the highest percentage since 1914. Nationally, voters cast more than 100 million ballots on Election Day, up from 83 million in 2014.
Just another signal that 2020 will be the donnybrook of our time. (If the President survives the Democratic house investigations of his finances).
The first Democratic candidate for 2020 announced this week. West Virginia state Senator Richard Ojeda filed the paperwork with the Federal Election Commission. By the way, he lost his run for congress last week. Oh yea, like other Dems in red states he was promising to work with the President.
Did you see that Check Schumer won unnanimous support from the senate Democrats to be minority leader? Did you know that in the campaign Kyrsten Sinema vowed to not vote for him? She was declared the winner one day and broke that promise the next. Did you hear that on the MSM?
Which tells you why there will be some noise, but Nancy Pelosi is a lock for the speaker position when the vote occurs after Thanksgiving. The floor vote in the entire house is January 3rd. People are just fooled over and over.
Here’s what she is saying and doing now:
“Nancy Pelosi is making gender a central part of her bid to reclaim the speaker’s gavel — leaning hard into the pitch that Democrats cannot oust the only woman at their leadership table following a historic election for women.
In addition to arguing she’s the best qualified for the job, the California Democrat and her allies are also framing a Pelosi victory as a matter of protecting political progress for women at a critical moment. Push her out, and men may take over the party at a time when more than 100 women are heading to Capitol Hill and after women voters have been thoroughly alienated by President Donald Trump. Embrace her, and she’ll prioritize legislation empowering women from equal pay to anti-harassment legislation.”
Plus she has the support of all the leaders. Here’s quotes from Sundays news shows:
REP. ELIJAH CUMMINGS,ranking member on the oversight panel, on ABC’S “THIS WEEK” said “She’s got my vote … She’s a phenomenal speaker. … And we now have all of these women coming into Congress it would be a damn shame that you replaced this fearless leader with a man.”
REP. ADAM SCHIFF,ranking member on the intel panel, on NBC’S “MEET THE PRESS” called Pelosi the “strongest general that we have. We need the best tactician. We need the best organizer … And that’s her. There’s no one else, honestly, that comes close.”
REP. JERRY NADLER, ranking member of the judiciary committee, on ABC’S “THIS WEEK” described Pelosi as one of the “finest legislative craftsman of our time … She most certainly has my support, I would do anything I can to make sure she’s the speaker again.”
By the way, Congress will be far more diverse in January: Of the 89 new faces set to join the House and Senate, almost half aren’t white men. Overall, the new Congress will reach a record for the most women and hit milestones for various ethnic groups.
Did you see this?
The husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway has formed a group to push back at President Donald Trump.
George Conway’s group, Checks and Balances, includes prominent conservative and libertarian attorneys, according to The Washington Post. The group says it is important for lawyers to speak up if they believe Trump’s actions are unconstitutional.
“There is a deep-seated concern and uneasiness in conservative legal circles with the president’s attacks on our institutions, including the press and the Department of Justice, and a belief that conservative lawyers are not speaking up enough,” said group member John Bellinger, a former legal adviser for the State Department and National Security Council.
The group also includes, Tom Ridge, a former Pennsylvania governor and one-time secretary of Homeland Security; professors Orinn Kerr and Jonathan Adler; Peter Keisler, acting attorney general in the Bush administration; and attorney Lori Meyer, who is married to Federalist Society President Eugene B. Meyer.
“We believe in the rule of law, the power of truth, the independence of the criminal justice system, the imperative of individual rights and the necessity of civil discourse,” the group‘s mission statement said. “We believe these principles apply regardless of the party or persons in power. We believe in ‘a government of laws, not of men.’”
The more you read, see and hear doesn’t it make you wonder who Trump’s people are and how he can win again in 2020?
