There was a plethora of news last week, with the most important being speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi disinviting President Trump from the house chambers to give the State Of The Union message. This Presidented action could possibly be the result of Trumps pulling Nancy’s military plane trip to the Mid- East out from under her.
This tit for tat has been going on since Nancy first accepted the gavel this year. Despite all her pronouncements that she would run a completely transparent House, we have to remember that when she was at the famous White House meeting with Trump and Schumer she wanted to exclude the press from the discussion that ensued.
Also last week Nancy seemed to favor a two and a half day work week as she sent the house home after that amount of time. Years ago the Lil-Abner cartoon strip featured a character named Senator Phogbound. Nancy may have well inherited that title as Representative Fogbound. ***
FAKE NEWS. The often maligned main stream media may have reached its apex last week when it miscovered two important stories. The first was a buzz feed bomb shell about Trump telling his former attorney Cohen to lie to Congress about a Trump Tower in Russia. After 24 hours the salivating press was brought up short by non-other than special counsel Robert Mueller stating the story was false. The other misinterpreted story was occasioned by showing a T.V. snippet of a confrontation between a Native American pounding a drum in front of a group of Kentucky high school students. This seemed to indicate that the students were somehow demeaning the Native American. Once again the left wing media, particularly T.V. pundits, went whole hog on the fake news when the entire film was shown on T.V. It revealed that a group of black activists had begun the situation by hurling vicious taunts at the high schoolers and that the Native American only sought to defuse the situation.
Another interesting thing that the fake news intelligentsia should think about is that when they criticized Trump leading a chaotic White House and being unfit for the office of President they are really demeaning their hero-Barak Obama. The rationale for this is that Obama in 8 years was incapable of achieving the economic boom that Trump has managed in only 2 year. A good example of this is that Obama was famous for saying that jobs which were driven from the U.S. would never come back. He even went on to say that Trump would have to have a magic wand to do so. Conversely, Trump used the single obvious method to bring the jobs back by reducing the onerous tax rate. ***
SMALL DOGS. One of the left-leaning commentators on T.V. decried the currently announced Democrat candidates for president are literally a group of small dogs. He went on to say that wait until a couple of the big dogs-Biden and Sanders jump into the fray then we will see where the major donors choose to put their money. Most of the current Democrat candidates are so far left as to make even Bernie Sanders look conservative. Leader of the pack is youthful Ocasio-Cortez, who is not the official face of the Democrat party according to DMC chairman Perez. The wild-eyed Cortez latest statement is that a system creates billionaires is unjust. Perhaps she does not know that inadvertently she is trashing several billionaire donors to the Democrat party in the persons of ex-Mayor Bloomberg and the infamous George Soros.
Also, she must realize that social media giants who are extremely wealthy use their position and money to fund Democrat candidates and causes.
As an example of how far left the Democrats are swinging is that Cortez and the foul-mouthed Muslim lady rep. have both been appointed to important committee posts in the new liberal House.***
ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. Bolstering President Trump’s assertion that illegal immigrants are the cause of injury to many U.S. citizens is the fact that an illegal was recently accused of being involved in the murder of 4 Nevadans, 2 in Reno and 2 in Gardnerville. As of this writing he has not been charged with the murders but is being held on $500,000 bail in connection with a number of other charges.***
