A new Quinnipiac University polls shows good news for the top Democratic presidential contenders. In individual matchups against President Trump, all of them are leading. In fact, former Vice President Joe Biden enjoys a significant lead of 53-40% over the President. Other polls also give Biden a strong lead over Trump, both nationally and in battleground states like Pennsylvania.
Throughout our history, free speech has been cherished in the United States of America. Thankfully, we have the First Amendment which mandates that “Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech.” It not only protects this right, but also the free press and other precious freedoms such as the right to exercise religious beliefs, assemble, and “petition the Government for the redress of grievances.”
The two highest-profile members of the Louisiana congressional delegation have plenty to say lately regarding the Democrats investigating President Donald Trump. Both Congressman Steve Scalise and US Senator John Kennedy are fierce advocates for the president and because of their respective positions or the ability to turn a phrase, have received plenty of airtime to vouch for their party leader and to slam the Democrats. Scalise usually appears on Fox News, Scalise or “Any News”.
In the 2016 presidential race, all the so-called experts predicted that former Florida Governor Jeb Bush would easily win the GOP nomination and face Hillary Clinton in the general election. The problem with this prediction was that Bush was a horrible candidate who did not appeal to the base of the Republican Party. Voters suffered from “Bush fatigue” and wanted a change.
Was the investigation of Trump Russia fair and without bias? Will Attorney General Barr’s counter-scrutiny be conducted without prejudice? If one investigation is condemned for being so tainted it cannot be trusted, can the other be trusted if it is tainted, in response?
For two years, as the Trump Russia probe proceeded, those opposed to the investigation clamored energetically and feverishly. They claimed angrily that the Mueller inquiry could not be trusted. We were told that lovers in the FBI and DOJ so hated Trump that anything they touched was immediately tainted. We were told that the dossier was concocted information goulash and that no FISA warrant should have ever been issued. We heard that the FISA application was corrupted because it failed to mention that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party paid for the Steele dossier. Therefore, they adamantly asserted the federal government acted in bad faith and Trump Russia is a hoax.
As might be expected, President Donald Trump, his attorneys, his political party the Republican Party, his son, his admirers and perhaps one-third or more of the country believes that Robert Mueller spoke, said nothing new and so it is time to move on.
Today it was Mueller Time's time in the barrel.
Finally, we discover that Robert Mueller really does have a voice. He's not just some guy walking down some federal hallway. And, his voice, as I always thought would be an honest one.
By tweet, President Donald Trump, after Robert Mueller’s first public appearance since being appointed Special Counsel, said:
As almost the entire Congress left Washington D.C. for the Memorial Day holiday, a pork barrel package of “disaster relief” was getting ready to be approved. The price tag for the bill reached $19.1 billion and it included aid for hurricane ravaged areas in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Puerto Rico, as well as flooding relief for states such as Iowa and Nebraska. In an almost empty House chamber, one member, appropriately from the “Lone Star” state of Texas, U.S. Representative Chip Roy (R-TX) objected to the unanimous consent that was necessary.
I am convinced that recent developments in the Trump Russia controversy have further tarnished the reputations of Attorney General Bill Barr, the national Republican Party and specifically, the conservative Freedom Caucus.
Instead of trying to get to the truth about the results of a critical investigation, all three have joined together for partisan reasons to prevent information flow we need to understand our past. Yet, they loudly demand that all stones be unturned to investigate the investigators )in a probe I do hope gets to the whole truth).

As Vice President Pence QUIETLY CATNAPPED through the State of the Union Address on Feb. 5, Donald Trump declared, “We will never be a socialist country.”
Fast forward to May 13 (that’s the day before yesterday and barely three months after that SOTU declaration.
Trump ramps up his trade war with China, imposing new tariffs on Chinese imports that he claims will bring money into the U.S. treasury when, in fact, the proposed tariffs only mean that U.S. consumers will be paying more for goods from China.
The 2020 presidential election started on the night Donald Trump was elected President of the United States. Since that night, Democrats and their allies in the media have been working tirelessly to undermine his agenda and harm his standing with the American people.
The Mueller investigation was a bogus two-year effort to sabotage President Trump and drive him from office. Fortunately, the scheme has not worked and most congressional Democrats realize that impeachment is unlikely and political unpopular.
It’s getting “Curiouser and curiouser!” for sure. And, I’m absolutely believing that in this Alice and Wonderland world of Trump era politics that “we’re all mad here” already, so nothing should shock any of us, ever.
Still, I’m not quite sure how else to explain it.
Hillary Clinton is the gift that just keeps on giving to President Donald Trump and the Republican Party. She will not leave the political stage and continues to keep herself in the public eye. After completing a rather unsuccessful speaking tour with her husband, former President Bill Clinton, in which ticket prices were slashed dramatically to fill seats, Hillary Clinton decided to visit New Hampshire, the state with the first presidential primary in 2020.
The House Judiciary Committee has voted by party-line to hold Attorney Bill Barr in contempt of Congress. The vote occurred after the President of the United States Donald Trump has declared the entire Mueller report under executive prvilege. The vote was 24-16, with the ayes in favor of contempt.

Today, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders announced that President Donald Trump has declared executive privilege over the entire Mueller report.
