It’s Tuesday.

President Trump has tweeted 14 times, having deleted a tweet only to re-issue that tweet.

“THE REAL DEAL My Decade Fighting Battles and WINNING WARS WITH TRUMP” written by Trump Organization Executive and attorney George A. Sorial and a former newspaper editor Damian Bates, can be found at Amazon.com.

Part of the books description explains, “The mainstream media has tried to undermine the president at every turn by spreading lies about his management abilities, his negotiation style, and his business success. Now, in The Real Deal, George A. Sorial and Damian Bates explain how Trump’s unusual style worked so well for decades—and how it’s working better in the White House than anyone realizes.”


The New York Post article is an opinion piece written by the Post Editorial Board.

They write, “Chairman Jerry Nadler has to put on a show of pursuing President Trump because the party’s left wing demands it. But Speaker Nancy Pelosi won’t let Nadler go to impeachment hearings because she knows the broader public will see it as a partisan outrage.”

They conclude the opinion piece by writing, “if Nadler wants to avoid a complete flop, he needs to get not just cynical, but creative. Maybe subpoena Monica Lewinsky?”


Speaking with Fox News, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said the following.

  1. There is nothing going on in the House about protecting the 2020 election, they are trying to nullify the 2016 election. Mueller has spoken, he found no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians after two years, 25 million dollars, 19 lawyers and 40 FBI agents.
  2. He decided not to bring any charges regarding the obstruction of justice because there is no crime here. The bottom line is what the House is doing is politically motivated, trying to destroy the Trump presidency.
  3. I can assure you that we are done with the Mueller investigation in the Senate. They can talk to John Dean until the cows come home, we are not doing anything in the Senate regarding the Mueller report.
  4. Nobody from the FBI, no one ever told candidate Trump that ‘we think some people working for you may be working with the Russians.’ Why did they not tell Trump what they told the Democratic Party?

1. The Hill reported in May that House Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) reintroduced a bill to protect elections from cyberattacks. The article notes that parts of the Election Security Act, were included in the House For the People Act, which passed the Democrat held House earlier this year.

As they note the For the People Act does “not appear likely to see action in the Senate, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) referring to the bill as the “Democrat Politician Protection Act.”

The article also explains that both the “House Homeland Security and House Administration committees have held hearings in recent months on the topic of election security.”

2. Introduction of Volume II of the Mueller Report explains that Special Counsel Robert Mueller himself did not make a traditional prosecutorial judgment,” regarding President Trump and Obstruction of Justice based on “The Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) has issued an opinion finding that “the indictment or criminal prosecution of a sitting President would impermissibly undermine the capacity of the executive branch to perform its constitutionally assigned functions” in violation of “the constitutional separation of powers.”

Attorney General William Barr, and former Deputy Attorney Rod Rosenstein reached the decision not to charge the President with obstruction.

4. In December of 2017 NBC News reported that the FBI warned both candidates that foreign adversaries, including Russia would try to spy and infiltrate their campaigns.

The warning came mid-July 2016, “in the form of a high-level counterintelligence briefing by senior FBI officials.”

Both campaigns were urged by the FBI to notify them if outreach occurred, then-Candidate Trump nor his campaign informed the FBI about the June 9th Trump Tower Meeting with the Russians in which the campaign was promised dirt on Hillary Clinton.



In June of 2018 when Republican’s held the majority in both the Senate and the House, Rep. Bob Goodlattee (R-VA) introduced a bill titled Border Security and Immigration Reform Act of 2018.

The bill failed to pass the Republican held House.

Congress.gov records the for’s as 121 while those opposed to the bill stood at 301.

Seven days ago The Washington Post reported that the Democratic House pass a bill that “would offer a path to citizenship to more than 2 million undocumented immigrants, including “dreamers” who were brought to the United States as children.”

The vote according to the Post stood at 237 for while 187 voted against the American Dream and Promises Act of 2019.

The article notes that while the Democrats appeared optimistic that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) would bring the bill to the Senate floor for a vote, that “is unlikely that the Senate will consider the bill: McConnell and other Senate Republican leaders made no mention of the bill at their weekly news conference Tuesday afternoon.”


Bloomberg reports that a Labor Department Report released Tuesday showed, “Excluding food and energy, producer prices increased 2.3% in May from a year earlier — the least since January 2018 and matching forecasts — following a 2.4% gain in the prior month.”

Bloomberg goes on to say “The main PPI gauge rose 0.1% from April, matching projections, after a 0.2% increase. Excluding food and energy, prices advanced 0.2%, also in line with forecasts, following a 0.1% gain.”


Deleted tweet.

He deleted this tweet after he issued that low inflation was beautiful.

Since taking office in January of 2017 the President has pressured the Federal Reserve to lower interest rates and resume Quantitative Easing. The first tweet came in April 2018, according to Trump Twitter Archive.

On Monday while speaking on CNBC News the President explained in part that the Fed was “very, very destructive.”


Opinion.

Tariffs are a tax on consumers, those of us that shop for everyday goods and services. Tariffs hurt the middle class, the poor, the elderly on fixed incomes. For example of this, in a later tweet, the President brags about how good the stock market opened today, it did that, because the threat of tariffs imposed on Mexican imports was avoided.

As the News Blender reported on Monday, the President has been pushing the deal reached between the U.S. and Mexico to stop the tariffs. He continues to explain that part of the deal is secret.

The New York Times reported on Monday that according to Mexico’s Foreign Minister, Marcelo Ebrard, the deal, the understanding between the two countries is that if in the coming months their plans to stop the flow of illegal immigrates fails, the two countries will meet again to discuss other options.

Let’s have a deadline to see if what we have works, and if not, then we will sit down and look at the measures you propose and those that we propose.

Congress.gov since January 2019 the House led by Democrats has passed 275 Bills.
