With 116 days to go is Joe Biden going to pull off that bunker strategy?
The NYT columnist Tom Friedman opened the door to no debates. He said unless the President releases his taxes and agrees to a fact checker there should be no debates.
Can this be a strategy and Biden avoids debates?
In my mind since there can’t be a national campaign as in the past with rallies, we should have more debates. Don’t we need to hear about where they stand?
Here’s an example of clear differences between the two.
Joe Biden, yesterday, formally embraced citizenship rights for 11 million illegal immigrants and a full erasure of all of the President’s get tough border policies as part of the party’s new unity platform.
He also said he would expand sanctuary locations, limit ICE’s ability to deport criminals in local jails, and reverse deportations for some military veterans already ousted because of criminal records.
We will cover many issues here, but how many people know this and others? Don’t you think the MSM should get serious and stop with all its hysterics and cover issues? People can decide which side they are on.
The implementation of the USMCA this week received almost no coverage, did it? Why no coverage?
I guess it was good for the USA or the media would have blasted away. Think about that.
Also another issue to be discussed. VP Biden was a NAFTA supporter. The President cancelled it. Let’s have that discussion, and which created jobs.
In addition, the Mexican President was here and you know what he said?
He thanked President Trump. Imagine that!
“You have not tried to treat us as a colony. On the contrary … you have treated us as what we are — a country and a dignified people, increasingly respectful and a dignified people.” He pledged Wednesday “to work together as neighbors on migration, trade and efforts to counter drug trafficking.”
He added this too: “We have received from you understanding and respect.”
Since the President has been beaten over the coals by the media for his Mexico policy do you think this deserved coverage? Did you see it?
A little more on the mary trump book
The more I learn about her book and the timing, the more it appears to be a money grab. The essence of her case was that her grandfather kept her and her brother out of his will. She makes charges about how the family treated them. Now her Father and Mother separated in 1971. The grandfather died in 1989.
The grandfather (Donald’s Dad), did not like her mother and blamed her for his son’s substance issues. He also felt the kids (Mary and her Brother) were not respectful to him. Thus, he left them out of the will.
The kids sued after the will was released and a settlement reached, with which each side signed a non disclosure.
Mary is breaking that now and saying she and her brother were not treated fairly. She even said her brother’s son in need of medical care was denied by the family.
Now, that brother, from whom she has grown apart, has taken a different stand and has a relationship with the family. In a statement he released he said “their legal settlement had been generous and his son well-provided for.”
So you judge.
some news and headlines today & yesterday
Today the Supreme Court ruled that President Trump must release his taxes to the DA in NY. Not a surprise, and okay as long as its not a witch hunt. I would like to see a lot of tax returns, wouldn’t you? Also, I’d like to see some emails.
They also pushed back on congress getting his taxes.
Now, I don’t believe it will happen before the election. The court allowed the President to go back down to the lower courts to appeal.
It is just another case of the court trying to avoid any decision before the November election.
The same Supreme Court ruled yesterday that the administration acted legally when it allowed religious exemptions from the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive mandate.
The ruling was 7-2. (Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor were the dissenters.) This case challenged the lower court ruling (by Clinton appointed judges) that no exemptions were allowed for religious organizations.
Judges should be another big issue in the 2020 election.
More bad news for the President:
The one poll he also touts and got it right in 2016, the Rasmussen Poll, released this update:
President Trump is trailing Democrat Joseph R. Biden by 10 percentage points in a poll often cited by the president as being fair to him. The vote was 50-40%.
Seattle is back in the news. This time on taxes. They are going after the large companies like Amazon. The tax passage was led by an avowed socialist. Here’s the story; as you read it tell me why big tech is publicly for Democrats.
City council member Kshama Sawant had a personal message for billionaire Jeff Bezos after the passage of the so-called Amazon tax, warning him that “we are coming for you.” The avowed socialist framed Monday’s 7-2 council vote for the hefty payroll tax on larger businesses as a step toward the goal of overthrowing the “bankrupt system of capitalism” and replacing it with “a socialist world.” “And if you, Jeff Bezos, want to drive that process forward by lashing out against us in our modest demands, then so be it,” she said in a video address that was posted on Socialist Alternative. “Because we are coming for you and your rotten system.” The newly passed tax increase, officially called JumpStart Seattle, but better known as the Amazon tax, would raise at least $214 million annually by taxing businesses with more than $7 million in annual payroll 0.7% for every employee earning at least $150,000, and 1.4% for those making more than $500,000.
Did you see this?
Don Lemon said efforts at “reshaping” the nation should include a conversation about putting former President Obama on Mount Rushmore.
“If they are going to put someone on Mount Rushmore, considering the history of the country, the first Black president should be front and center.”
Mayor DeBlasio in NYC is ready to begin painting a Black Lives Matter mural outside of Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan today.
Is this necessary and right? You get what you vote for.
Biden is getting lots of help in raising funds:
Both former President OBAMA and HILLARY CLINTON will be holding separate big-donor fundraisers for Joe Biden.
Biden’s been on a roll in fundraising, out raising the President the past two months.
The Obama event is with Illinois Gov. Pritzker. Giving levels range from $50,000 to $250,000.
The Clinton event is with Rep.Shalala (D-Fla.) and California Lt. Gov. Kounalakis. Tickets range from $1,000 to $25,000.
It’s nice to have friends!
Lot’s of coverage on the Coronavirus, as usual, and this city in particular.
Tulsa County reported 261 confirmed new cases on Monday, a one-day record high, and another 206 cases on Tuesday. The tieback of course to “the Trump rally,” which they said was disappointing in attendance.
Now do you ever hear about the protesters and rioters driving up cases? Have you heard one story about that? Why do Trump rallies (which shouldn’t be happening) drive up the virus but not protests, BLM rallies or anything else?
