In the history of our country the President has been the “comforter in chief” and led the nation in times of grief. This year the atmosphere has been vilified that we don’t know what will happen as he visits each city.
Beto O’Rourke has led the charge against the visit to El Paso as he states as fact that the President is racist and caused the shooting there. Of course there is no proof of that, but with the backing of the MSM he can say whatever he wants and not worry.
In Dayton the Mayor has made clear she prefer the President not come, but she will do her job as Mayor. She too said his words and actions make him unwanted. Well since the shooter there was a self avowed “leftist” who hated Trump, how does that square?
Once again we circle back to the MSM, who talked from the outset about it was White Nationalism and Trump supporters that are causing all the shootings. They present the news and leave the impression it is all tied together. Well there have been three mass shootings this month. (Four actually, as in NYC twelve were shot and one died two weeks ago at a party. You didn’t hear much about it did you? Don’t those lives matter or is it because the attendees and shooter were minorities it doesn’t rate coverage. Maybe it didn’t fit a narrative!)
Anyway of the other three, El Paso, Dayton and Gilbride, CA only one could be tied to white nationalism. The other two had other leanings. Now one is too many for any of us. But, the media swaying the public that this is all connected to white nationalism is shameful and fueling more unrest in the nation and does nothing to drive us to find solutions.
Remember the other day we wrote about the impact of China cutting the value of its Yuan? We said it keeps price inceases down and improves the revenue for the government. Well this from the WSJ today:
“The tariff hikes approved by President Trump have infuriated Beijing and escalated the U.S.-China trade war, but there has been at least one beneficiary: the U.S. Treasury. As of June 30, the U.S. government has collected $63 billion in tariffs over the preceding 12 months, according to the latest Treasury data. What’s more, the tariff bounty is on the rise”.
Did you hear that on the news or only the higher costs you are going to pay because the President is so wrong?
The latest QUINNIPIAC poll on the Democratic primary is this:
Biden 32 (-2 since July), Warren 21 (+6), Sanders 14 (+3), Harris 7 (-5). Buttigieg gets 5 percent and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke have 2 percent each. There are 4 candidates with 1 percent each and 14 candidates at less than 1 percent each.
The release of names by Joaqium Castro of Trump donors in San Antonio is simply deplorable. The left is out of control.
