Thank you Senator @MarshaBlackburn for fighting obstructionist Democrats led by Cryin' Chuck Schumer. Democrats continue to look for a do-over on the Mueller Report and will stop at nothing to distract the American people from the great accomplishments of this Administration!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 14, 2019
Thank you @senatemajldr Mitch McConnell for understanding the Democrats game of not playing it straight on the ridiculous Witch Hunt Hoax in the Senate. Cryin’ Chuck will never stop. Did Senator @MarkWarner ever report speaking to a Russian!?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 14, 2019
Just spoke to Marillyn Hewson, CEO of @LockheedMartin, about continuing operations for the @Sikorsky in Coatesville, Pennsylvania. She will be taking it under advisement and will be making a decision soon….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 14, 2019
….While Pennsylvania is BOOMING, I don’t want there to be even a little glitch in Coatesville – every job counts. I want Lockhead to BOOM along with it!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 14, 2019
The CNN article tweeted by President Trump is an opinion piece written by Brian Blase, who “is a special assistant to the President at the National Economic Council focused on health care policy.”
According to Blase, on Thursday the Trump Administration took another step toward helping “small businesses and hard-working middle-class families afford health insurance.”
A new rule, he writes, will “provide an estimated 800,000 businesses a better way to offer coverage and millions of workers a better way to obtain coverage, through the expansion of Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs).”
Blase continues to explain that HRAs “are employer-funded arrangements that workers use to pay for medical expenses,” he adds that the Obama Administration did not allow workers, “in the individual insurance market to use HRAs to pay for coverage ,” he adds, “Trump’s new rule undoes this misguided restriction.”
According to Blase, the new rule will go into effect on January 1st, 2020, and allow, employers the ability to offer their workers HRAs to buy individual market coverage for themselves and their families.
He explains that the new rule, “will take roughly five years for the full impact of the rule to hit — at which point, we expect 11 million workers and family members to use HRA funds to obtain individual coverage.”
On Thursday, the day after it was revealed through an ABC News previewed clip of the President’s interview with ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos, in which the President explains he is open to receiving “oppo research” on his political opponent from a foreign government, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) blocked a bill that The Hill reports, “would force campaigns to notify the Federal Election Commission and the FBI about attempts by foreign nationals to influence an election.”
The Foreign Influence Reporting in Elections Act (FIRE) was introduced by co-chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee Senator Mark Warner (D-VA), speaking from the Senate Floor, Warner said, “This legislation is pretty simple, even for this body, it would require any presidential campaign that receives offers of assistance from an agent of a foreign government, has an obligation to report that offer of assistance to law enforcement, specifically the FBI.”
Blackburn objected saying, “The UC that was presented is overboard, and this is something that should be done in a thoughtful way. It should be done in a bipartisan way.”
Warner plus google still have no idea when he spoke to the “Russian’s” or the Russian Government regarding the President or the 2016 election, beyond his role in investigating Russian 2016 Presidential Election interference.
The President on Friday attempted to backtrack his comments as the News Blender reported, during an interview with Fox & Friends.
Tweets From Saturday.
I will post the tweets, but will not attempt to unpack all 17 tweets.
“The latest Polls find 51% of Americans approve of President Trump’s Job Performance. Last month a Democrat Pollster said President Trump’s approval rating has been the most steady of any President in history!” @OANN— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 15, 2019

I enjoyed my interview with @GStephanopoulos on @ABC. So funny to watch the Fake News Media try to dissect & distort every word in as negative a way as possible. It will be aired on Sunday night at 8:00 P.M., and is called, “President Trump: 30 Hours” (which is somewhat….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 16, 2019
….misleading in that I personally spent only a small fraction of that time doing interviews. I do have a few other things to do, you know!). Think I will do many more Network Interviews, as I did in 2016, in order to get the word out that no President has done what I have in…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 16, 2019

Do you believe that the Failing New York Times just did a story stating that the United States is substantially increasing Cyber Attacks on Russia. This is a virtual act of Treason by a once great paper so desperate for a story, any story, even if bad for our Country…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 16, 2019
…..ALSO, NOT TRUE! Anything goes with our Corrupt News Media today. They will do, or say, whatever it takes, with not even the slightest thought of consequence! These are true cowards and without doubt, THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 16, 2019
The Washington Post reported that on Flag Day, which also happened to be President Trump’s birthday, Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) and Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND), introduced an amendment to ban flag burning.
According to the article, the Supreme Court ruled in 1989 that “flag burning was protected by the First Amendment after a protester was convicted of burning an American flag outside the 1984 Republican National Convention in Dallas. The following year, the nation’s highest court reaffirmed its ruling when it struck down legislation passed by Congress to make flag burning illegal.”
The article notes that between 1995 and 2006 Congress has voted at least half a dozen times on the flag-burning amendment, “The closest it came was in 2006, when it fell one vote shy.”
The article also notes that “Even if a constitutional amendment made it through Congress, it would require the support of 38 states to be ratified.”

The New York Times on Saturday reported that, “The United States is stepping up digital incursions into Russia’s electric power grid in a warning to President Vladimir V. Putin and a demonstration of how the Trump administration is using new authorities to deploy cybertools more aggressively.”
According to authors David Sanger and Nicole Perlroth, the information contained in article is based on three months worth of interviews of officials that described, “the previously unreported deployment of American computer code inside Russia’s grid and other targets as a classified companion to more publicly discussed action directed at Moscow’s disinformation and hacking units around the 2018 midterm elections.”
They note, “the administration declined to describe specific actions it was taking under the new authorities, which were granted separately by the White House and Congress last year to United States Cyber Command, the arm of the Pentagon that runs the military’s offensive and defensive operations in the online world.”
But according to National Security Adviser John Bolton, who said publicly on Tuesday that the U.S. was taking a broader view of potential digital targets as pat of an effort, “to say to Russia, or anybody else that’s engaged in cyberoperations against us, ‘you will pay a price.'”
BBC News reported that police in London had made 14 arrests after five separate attacks left three men dead and three others injured in the span of 24 hours.
I am sickened to hear that two young lives have been ended within minutes of each other in Wandsworth & Greenwich. Anybody who has information about what happened should do the right thing and call the police, either on 101 or anonymously, through @CrimestoppersUK on 0800 555 111 https://t.co/yqHPMVQvzt— Sadiq Khan (@SadiqKhan) June 14, 2019
After the President, who BBC notes has a long running feud with London Mayor Sadiq Khan, weighed-in on London violence via tweet, the Mayor was asked for comment, a spokesman said “the mayor was focused on supporting the city’s communities and over-stretched emergency services,” adding that the mayors thoughts were with the victims families and that the mayor “is not going to waste his time responding to this sort of tweet.”
Father’s Day Tweets.
The first two tweets of Sunday’s 15 tweets, which again will not all be unpacked, were sent by the President at 12:51 a.m. eastern time.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis just signed Bill banning Sanctuary Cities in State, & forcing all law enforcement agencies to cooperate with Federal Immigration authorities.

….More and more states want to do this but their governors and leaders don’t have the courage to do so.

Because the President seems obsessed with “polls” I’m including Monday’s 3 tweets so far here.

“Iran to defy Uranium Stockpile Limits”— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 17, 2019
During his ABC News interview the President is asked about internal polls that show he is behind several Democratic Presidential hopefuls, he says that’s not true he’s doing great in the polls.
ABC News reported Sunday that “the Trump campaign is cutting ties with a number of pollsters,” that showed the President was down by wide margins in key battleground states.
The article goes on to explain, “Multiple sources familiar with the matter confirmed to ABC News that the campaign will part with some of its pollsters after the leak, which showed data that the president was losing in key must-win states based on internal polling done in late March of this year.”
The New York Times reported the decision to cut ties with pollsters comes “after a leak of dismal internal polls,” showed the President down in key states.
The article notes that the move to purge the pollsters has come just days before the President officially launches his 2020 campaign.
A top adviser said on Sunday according to the article, that “the campaign was cutting ties with three of its five pollsters to prevent further disclosure of survey data.”
The President has denied the polls showing him trailing in by double digits in states like Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.
Campaign Manager Brad Parscale, hopes by removing several pollsters, that the campaign will “shrink the circle of outside operatives who have access to information that could leak, according to the presidential adviser, who was not authorized to speak publicly.”
Fox News reported that Iran announced Monday it intends to “exceed the low-enriched uranium stockpile limit it agreed to in the 2015 nuke deal — unless certain demands are met by the pact’s remaining signatories within the next 10 days.”
The article explains, “Under terms of the multinational nuke deal — engineered by the Obama administration in July 2015 but significantly weakened when the Trump administration withdrew in May 2018 — Iran can keep a stockpile of no more than 660 pounds of low-enriched uranium. Kamalvandi said that, given Iran’s recent decision to quadruple its production of low-enriched uranium, it would pass the 660-pound limit on June 27.”
