Make America Great Again has been the rallying cry since the onset of Donald Trump’s bid for the presidency. In fact, according to many experts, during the course of his brief presidency, the economy pretty much has been great. Part of the reason so far has been Trump’s relaxation of regulations which businesses have found suffocating. Also, many experts and business people point to the recent tax break. But, what exactly does “Make America Great Again” mean in the area of its economy?
Oyez, Oyez! Donald Trump should appoint himself to the Supreme Court, which would confer significant advantages on him, the nation, and a judiciary already burdened with cases that pertain to the president, in official and private capacities. The only requirement to be a supreme court justice is senate confirmation and Mike Pence, surely, would cast any tiebreaker in Trump’s favor because it’d make Pence president, however briefly.
Many years ago, Democrats were known for their staunch support of peaceful protests and our First Amendment rights guaranteeing free speech. Today, party activists have become intolerant, hateful and in too many cases violent.
It seems that almost every week a Trump administration official or supporter is being harassed by leftist protesters. It happened to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Senior White House Policy Advisor Stephen Miller and former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. Of course, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was not allowed to eat dinner at the Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington, Virginia because of her support for the President’s policies.
When President Trump was culling down his final list of Supreme Court nominees, one thing was certain - no consideration would be given to any judge sitting in New Orleans on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Yesterday, it happened again as Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt was harassed at a restaurant while eating lunch. This is the fifth Trump cabinet member or supporter that has been targeted in recent days. Never before have so many cabinet members of a presidential administration been badgered in public by political opponents
“We declared clearly that the Russian government did not meddle in U.S. processes, does not meddle and moreover did not meddle in the 2016 elections,” according to Putin aide, Yuri Ushakov, as reported by the New York Times.
It’s reassuring that Russia can still be trusted, though there’s a worry about the triple negative Ushakov uses in his general denial. Math aside, the president, allegedly, will straighten it all out when he meets in summit with Vladimir Putin next month, at which time superlatives will be expressed and best smiles flashed. The event, however, could do some good if it’s a substantive meet and not a P.R. stunt.
Filmmaker Michael Moore announced that his upcoming documentary, Fahrenheit 11/9, will be released on September 21. In the film, Moore will attempt to politically damage President Donald Trump by taking a “provocative and comedic look at the times in which we live.” In addition, Moore claims that his documentary will focus on “How the hell we got in this situation, and how we’re going to get out of it."
Might President Donald Trump, whose anti-regulations policies have helped boost the economy, reverse some of the country’s gains with his trade policy, specifically tariffs and potential trade war?
That appears to be the question that many economists and business persons are wondering right now as the tariffs have begun but has not filtered down to some of the component manufacturer’s yet. Yet! Which is the point that Jay Lapeyre appears to be making in my interview that I did with him yesterday.
For years the Republican Party has been promising to enact tough border security measures that would stop the flow of illegal immigrants into this country. They have campaigned on funding a border wall, ending “catch and release” policies, putting a halt to chain migration and finally starting to crack down on companies that employ illegal aliens.
The US Supreme Court has now become a major November election issue now that Justice Kennedy is retiring which will go into effect July 31. Trump surprised the nation in 2016 with his victory and one of the major issues was the Supreme Court. To the Democrats disadvantage, that topic appeared to be more important to Republicans than Democrats as the battle cry for conservatives was "Remember the Supreme Court"
Congresman Cedric Richmond, the Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus issued this statement today defending Congresswoman Maxine Waters after her urging the refusing to accomodate members of the Trump administration in public restaurants, gas stations and other similar locations.
If there’s “fruit of the poisonous tree” tainting the Mueller probe, it comes from a tree planted by president Donald Trump. The phrase is catchy, however, even if it’s completely inapplicable during the course of an investigation. Once a trial, or proceeding, has commenced, and evidence introduced, a defendant, then, may object that any proffered evidence was illegally, or improperly, obtained. Until evidence is introduced admissibility isn’t an issue. It’s no surprise, though, that Trump will say, or do, anything to impede the investigation into Russia that may touch him, personally.
The Red Hen got egged today, except it was the wrong bird. The Washington DC Red Hen which has nothing to do with the one in Virginia whose owner disgustingly gave Trump’s press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the boot, has received threats and eggs thrown at it.
