There’s not much out there right now except noise. Just noise.
The Democrats in congress continue to yell they want the full Mueller report. In fact they demanded to have it today.
The MSM is covering their demand — of course.
Except they won’t get it.
There are laws to follow and innocent people to protect.
The AG promised it by mid April.
Now think about the noise you hear on every newscast and read.
Two weeks. That is the time difference.
Does anyone think the AG is going to change the report? That’s impossible.
So why the noise?
They mislead their followers and probably fooled themselves to thinking there was collusion. When Mueller said “no”, they were stunned.
When the report comes out we can predict their comments. Let’s see:
“Oh there were plenty of crimes, Mueller just couldn’t prove it.”
“We will get to the bottom of this”. (Get ready for more hearings)
“We demand they release the un-redacted parts”.
“They are covering up”.
And, the MSM will cover it as if it has validity.
Now what they not covering? How about this:
There is a crisis at the border. Remember when the President declared it? Remember the coverage? Remember the opposition then?
Where is the “the President was right” now?
Plenty of noise weeks ago, none now.
More noise from the President too. This time on healthcare. He is going to have a policy that costs less, insures all, and improves coverage.
Republicans have had eight years to come up with a plan and failed. You can’t insure 25-40 million for free and reduce costs.
Just more noise.
Here’s a tweet trail from the President and the outcome of the vote to illustrate the difference between the parties these days
.. at 10:50 p.m.: “The Democrats today killed a Bill that would have provided great relief to Farmers and yet more money to Puerto Rico despite the fact that Puerto Rico has already been scheduled to receive more hurricane relief funding than any ‘place’ in history. The people of Puerto Rico…..”
… at 11:11 p.m.: “….are GREAT, but the politicians are incompetent or corrupt. Puerto Rico got far more money than Texas & Florida combined, yet their government can’t do anything right, the place is a mess — nothing works. FEMA & the Military worked emergency miracles, but politicians like…..”
… at 11:38 p.m .: “….the crazed and incompetent Mayor of San Juan have done such a poor job of bringing the Island back to health. 91 Billion Dollars to Puerto Rico, and now the Dems want to give them more, taking dollars away from our Farmers and so many others. Disgraceful!”
THE SENATE did defeat two disaster bills because Republicans didn’t believe a House bill had enough money for Midwest flooding, and Democrats were opposed to a GOP bill because of what they saw as inadequate funding for Puerto Rico disasters.
So in essence Puerto Rico got more money than Houston and other disasters and still not fixed. The Dems say more money and the Republicans say less and more to our farmers.
Here’s another story that is not covered by the MSM. Think about how long it is taking for the administration to get their people approved. Here’s one that took a year and it was unanimous approval.
“It took six months of partisan delays — and several railroad accidents — before Democrats let the Senate confirm a federal railroad administrator, even though none of them actually voted against the nominee in the end.
“It’s been 354 days and counting in Senate purgatory for the president’s nominee to head the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Two-hundred eighty-seven days and counting for the under secretary of state for management. Noncontroversial lower court nominees have languished for weeks and weeks — for no discernible reason — before they, too, were confirmed unanimously. These are just a few examples of the historic obstruction Senate Democrats have visited upon President Trump’s nominees for two years and counting.
“Since January 2017, for the first time in memory, a minority has exploited procedure to systematically obstruct a president from staffing up his administration. This new, across-the-board obstruction is unfair to the president and, more importantly, to the American people. Left unchecked, it is guaranteed to create an unsustainable precedent that would see every future presidency of either party obstructed in the same mindless way. The Senate needs to restore normalcy. And this week, we will vote to do just that.”
Even the WSJ said this:
Enough with the partisan delays. The president’s nominees deserve consideration”:
The there’s the NY Times. Today it has this:
Someday, Trump will not be in office. Congress needs a full accounting of his misdeeds to ensure they don’t happen again.
Maybe they should look internal and not let what they they did happen again with this fiasco going on for three years.
Finally another story the MSM did not cover:
A decision by the 9th circuit, this time against the family of Kate Steinle.
The parents of Kate Steinle — the woman shot dead in San Francisco by an illegal immigrant — cannot sue the “sanctuary city” for having quietly set the shooter free shortly before the 2015 tragedy, a federal appeals court ruled.
The appellate decision noted that the case of Steinle, 32 — for three years a focus of President Trump’s strong criticism of sanctuary cities — is “undeniably tragic.”
Still, San Francisco can’t be penalized for Steinle’s death at the hands of José Ines Garcia Zarate, a three-judge panel of the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in the parents’ wrongful-death suit.
San Francisco’s City Attorney’s Office had argued successfully that the city was not liable for the actions of a former inmate, even though the city had sprung Garcia Zarate, who had a record of at least seven felony convictions, without telling immigration authorities.
The feds had a deportation order lodged against Garcia Zarate at the time, but the municipality’s sanctuary-city laws limited its cooperation with immigration officials.
Less than three months after he was freed, on July 1, 2015, Garcia Zarate, who was homeless, opened fire on San Francisco’s Pier 14. He claimed he pulled the trigger accidentally after finding the stolen gun on the pier.
A bullet ricocheted off the pier’s concrete and fatally struck Steinle in the back as she walked with her father.
