Questions and Thoughts With So Much In The News:
What does it say about the MSM and the coverage they gave the new Green Deal that not one senator voted for it?
Where were the announced Democratic candidates who touted it? Not one had the courage of their campaign words?
Voting “present” is political courage and a reason you should be President?
Four Democrats crossed lines (Manchin, Jones, King and Sinema) and had the courage to vote “No” with the Republicans.
And how smart are the Democratic Senators to have Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in position to answer when asked, “why so many Democrats in the upper chamber voted present,” respond “that she advised them to do so”. Oh now she leads the senate too?
Even crazier were their tweets after. Here’s one from Kirsten Gillibrand Today’s #GreenNewDeal vote is a partisan stunt to side-step needed debate on climate action, and give Republicans cover to put oil lobby checks over our kids. I’ve come to expect nothing less from @senatemajldr. I’ll be voting “present.” I don’t play ball with bad-faith farces.
Wait, you were for the New Green Deal until they asked to vote for it? What was the stunt senator?
Now the FBI is going to investigate the Jussie Smollette case. All they can do is look into the letter and attempt to see if anything illegal was done. They cannot go back to those 16 charges and bring them up again. So don’t expect much, but there is a lot here. Someone did something to make this happen and it had to be high up if the police chief and mayor were taken by surprise.
It could impact the Chicago Mayoral run-off. One candidate is from the state attorneys wing of the party.
Michael Avenatti got arrested and this time his wife can’t change her mind. The man who CNN and MSNBC had on continuously and was considering a run for president as a Democrat, now faces charges that can lock him up for the rest of his life?
So let’s see, he faces charges in NY and LA. He is being sued by Stormy for his work with her. And his client (Stormy) owes Donald Trump $293,000 in legal fees from the false charges Avenatti brought to court.
On top of that:
Avenatti’s law firm filed for bankruptcy in 2017. He had a $10 million judgment against the firm in US bankruptcy court in 2018. He has unpaid back taxes. He attempted to force his way into the federal investigation of Michael Cohen, which a federal judge said meant the end of Avenatti’s “publicity tour.” He was arrested in November on domestic-abuse charges.
Just a few days ago, his most recent ex-wife told The Daily Mail that Avenatti was “a deadbeat dad” who had left their 4-year-old son without health care.
In the end, Avenatti’s been revealed as all the things his former TV stations claim Trump is: a fraud, a liar, a con man, a thug, a megalomaniac who loves nothing more than media attention.
I suggest he find a lawyer with far better skills then his to defend him.
Let’s see, the President survived the house vote to overthrow his veto on the border crisis emergency declaration. So the President wins. Not much coverage, was there?
Now add this to the table (and wonder where the coverage is). On Monday of this week U.S. Border Patrol agents on the Southwest border took more people into custody than in any day in the past 10 years. Federal law enforcement agents made more than 3,700 apprehensions across California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas in one day.
Yesterday they reported over 13,000 people in custody. A crisis for them is 6,000. Read that again. Their rules are 6,000 is a crisis.
Now does the MSM or the Democrats have anything to say? Shouldn’t this be front and center?
Something funny to me was listening to Schumer and Pelosi yesterday blaming Donald Trump for the country’s ills.
I looked it up and Nancy came to congress in 1987. Chuck in 1993. Think about that. Trump arrived two years ago January.
Who owns the state of anything wrong?
In fact since 1987 we have had 16 years of Republican Presidency and 16 years of Democratic presidencies. Since 1993 (Chuck’s time) we have had Democrats for 16 and Republicans 10.
So tell me again, how is this Trump’s fault?
Barbara Bush, according to a new book, blamed President Trump for her heart attack. What else can they blame this guy for? This from the book:
“It wasn’t technically a heart attack, though she called it that. It was a crisis in her long battle with congestive heart failure and chronic pulmonary disease that hit her like a sledgehammer one day in June 2016. An ambulance was called to take her to the hospital. The two former presidents who had been at home with her that day, her husband and her oldest son, trailed in a car driven by the Secret Service. The tumultuous presidential campaign in general and Trump’s ridicule of son Jeb Bush in particular had riled her. “Angst,” she told me”.
Take A Look At Cable Ratings
Take a look at the numbers as the story broke Monday on the Mueller release. FoxNews dominated, beating CNN and MSNBC combined. MSNBC lost the most viewers, but CNN really tanked to lows for this breaking story.
Maybe the viewers of both were just mad they were lied to for two years.
Total Viewers (Live+SD x 1,000) Monday
Total Day: FNC: 2160 | CNN: 590 | MSNBC: 1112
Prime: FNC: 3.749 | CNN: 846 | MSNBC: 1.956
Post Mueller Report Impact on President’s Numbers:
Now the President has never cracked 50% approval in any poll for more than two days with Rasmussen. Here are the first polls out as the week unfolds:
Poll: Trump Approval Disapproval +/-
Economist 46 51 -5
CNBC 40 49 -9
Rasmussen 49 50 -1
We’ll track this the next few weeks to see how it moves.
Here’s the latest Democratic Primary Polls:
So the unannounced Biden is in the lead and with his apologizing this week for being over 50, white males and the Anita Hill hearing you know he is running.
