In The News for Thursday, June 20, 2019
Posted Jun 19 2019 7:53PM

·        The President kicked off his re-election campaign in Orlando on Tuesday night to a packed house of rabid supporters who had been lining up for the previous 45 hours. Approximately 120,000 people tried to get tickets for a venue that held 20-25,000. Contrast his kickoff announcement to Joe Biden’s “snore-fest announcement.” If you’re a supporter, you got just what you wanted to see in Orlando, an energized candidate ready to fight it out. If you’re not a fan, you might be worried at the difference between the crowds the President draws and the ones the riders in the Democratic presidential clown car draw. The President took no prisoners, telling his supporters “No matter what label they give, a vote for any Democrat in 2020 is a vote for the rise of radical socialism and destruction of the American Dream. Don’t ever forget, this election is about you. It’s about your family, your future and the fate of your country.” I suspect it’s going to get even more pointed as evidence keeps coming out about the machinations of the previous administration and the other swamp creatures who tried their best to overturn the results of a U.S. election that didn’t go the way they wanted. I’m eagerly anticipating the first perp walk.

·        Wednesday marked 100 days without an on-camera White House press briefing. I haven’t missed them since they are nothing more than an opportunity for vacuous reporters to try and pontificate their anti-administration points of view. The President’s impromptu interviews and appearances on Fox News primarily, have served as his conduit to the American people along with his Tweets. I really don’t miss seeing Jim Acosta make an ass of himself in the White House briefing room. Trump has figured out how to connect directly with voters as perhaps only Ronald Reagan has done in recent memory.

·        Well, it’s about time. San Francisco Installs Giant Toilet Handle To Periodically Flush Entire City.

·        This should hardly be a surprise. Bernie has some trouble with basic economics, confusing Revenue and Profits. Let’s face it. He is an inch deep and a mile wide.

·        The House has decided to take up reparations, while polls indicate only about 26% of Americans favor it. I suspect that number is inflated. Caleb Hull had some comments on the subject.

·        Good. It’s about time some sanity is applied to this mess. Three high school girls have filed discrimination complaint over dominating transgender athletes. Records in women’s sports are quickly losing any significance.

·        86-year old Willie Nelson has a cannabis company, and to no one’s surprise he is playing a vital executive role as ‘chief tester’. If you’ve never heard Toby Keith’s song, I’ll Never Smoke Weed with Willy Again, you need to.  

·        This is a chorus that needs to get louder and louder until the Democrats can no longer ignore it. Democratic Mayor – “We are sick and tired of government inaction on illegal immigration”.
