9 days from now on July 17th, 2019, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is expected to appear before two House Committees to offer testimony regarding the Special Counsel Russian Election Interference Report.
President Trump has tweeted 11 times so far.
Very good numbers on the economy. Much potential for growth. Trade deals being negotiated or being set up for negotiation. We have been treated very unfairly (to put it mildly) by other countries for many years, but that is changing!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 9, 2019
Very good numbers on the economy.
If the economy is so good how come President Trump keeps demanding the fed lower interest rates, and restart quantitative easing?
We have been treated very unfairly (to put it mildly) by other countries for many years, but that is changing!
If we have been treated so “unfairly,” how did the rich manage to get rich in the first place?
The wacky Ambassador that the U.K. foisted upon the United States is not someone we are thrilled with, a very stupid guy. He should speak to his country, and Prime Minister May, about their failed Brexit negotiation, and not be upset with my criticism of how badly it was…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 9, 2019
…handled. I told @theresa_may how to do that deal, but she went her own foolish way-was unable to get it done. A disaster! I don’t know the Ambassador but have been told he is a pompous fool. Tell him the USA now has the best Economy & Military anywhere in the World, by far…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 9, 2019
….and they are both only getting bigger, better and stronger…..Thank you, Mr. President!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 9, 2019

Good morning. In Playbook— Jake Sherman (@JakeSherman) July 9, 2019
The president would like you to believe @KimDarroch — the British ambassador to the us — is an outcast who no one likes.
So we compiled a partial list of all the times senior members of his administration partied with him in the last few years pic.twitter.com/dNCuZPsH9T
told @theresa_may how to do that deal, but she went her own foolish way-was unable to get it done.
As the News Blender reported on Monday, the advice President Trump offered outgoing Prime Minister May, “sue the EU,” according to a BBC interview with May.
Let it sink in that the President believes May “went her own foolish way,” by not suing the EU.
Thank you, Mr. President!
According to the Daily Mail.com‘s secret cables the British Ambassador Sir Kim Darroch shared with senior officials from Downing Street the “unvarnished truth” of his opinion of how his government should deal with the U.S. Trump Administration.
In one memo the Daily Mail says it reviewed marked “Official Sensitive,” Darroch said “Trump” was “radiating insecurity,” adding that President Trump filled his speeches with “false claims and invented statistics’,” he continued to explain that domestically the U.S. President was achieving “nothing.”
Seems to me if one wants the world to believe the Ambassador is wrong, one would not thank themselves in 3rd person.
But that’s just me.
"Wacky" and a "pompous fool." That's how Donald Trump described the U.K. ambassador to the U.S. in a new series of tweets lashing out at him over a leak of emails critical of the American administration. https://t.co/wiCfiQAtdC— AP Europe (@AP_Europe) July 9, 2019
“I agree with the President, the Supreme Court got it wrong. There should be a question about Citizenship on the Census. A.G. Barr sees a pathway to add the Citizenship Question.” Steve Doocy @foxandfriends Working hard on something that should be so easy. People are fed up!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 9, 2019
@ 9:51 a.m. eastern time Steve Doocy is trending on Twitter.
Because the President tweeted about him.
Which is how come, spoiler alert for another tweet, the owner of Billy Bones Bait and Tackle was trending earlier this morning.
On Monday, Attorney General William Barr, told AP News in an interview that he “sees a way to legally require 2020 census respondents to declare whether or not they are citizens, despite a Supreme Court ruling that forbade asking the question.”
He is quoted as saying, “I agree with him that the Supreme Court decision was wrong,” he added that he believes there is “an opportunity potentially to cure the lack of clarity that was the problem and we might as well take a shot at doing that.”
As the News Blender reported on Monday, the Department of Justice is replacing the legal team that was defending the addition of the citizenship question with a new team.
On Friday as the News Blender reported President Trump has also floated using an Executive Order to add the citizenship question on the 2020 Census.
He has also floated the idea of just postponing the Census until the question was added.
Trump Wants to Delay the Census After SCOTUS Ruling https://t.co/1zbEoR55No— Snip🦈Bytes (@SnipBytes) June 27, 2019
Outrage is growing in the Great State of Minnesota where our Patriots are now having to fight for the right to say the Pledge of Allegiance. I will be fighting with you! @foxandfriends— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 9, 2019
The Washington Post reports that the tweet came, “10 minutes after a segment on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” on the controversy in the left-leaning suburb of Minneapolis.”
The “controversy” stems from a city council decision in St. Louis Park, population 49,000, where in they decided not to recite the Pledge of Allegiance before their bi-monthly meetings.
On Monday night the city council said their decision last month was geared toward making all attendees to meetings more comfortable, as some city council members felt the Pledge made new immigrate uncomfortable given the political climate surrounding immigration.
The city council has postponed deciding if they will reverse that decision saying that the issue needed further study.
Opinion (Might be an unpopular take)
As a limited federal government person issues like this really piss me off.
This is a local matter, that effects zero outside the 49,000 residents, they are handling it, they don’t need either party from D.C., sticking their overly large nose into their business, which in truth can cause the situation to become worse.
Who is better to know what the majority of those 49,000 people want or need?
Those who live in the community?
Or some Federal Government clown with a Twitter account?
“With President Trump at the helm, not only is America getting great again, but he’s going to make our estuaries, our rivers, our water – everything better – the things he is doing, and done, are just helping America tremendously.” Thank you to Bruce Hrobak @foxandfriends— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 9, 2019
Who is Bruce Hroback?
The Owner of Billy Bones Bait and Tackle that’s who, he was also a guest on Monday to the White House.

Food Stamp participation hits 10 year low. Wow! @OANN— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 9, 2019
From the article posted at One America News Network.
“The latest data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) shows nearly 36 million people participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
Enrollment in the program hit a record high during President Obama’s second term. Less people signed up after 2013 due to new state laws, which issued new requirements to qualify.”
They go on to say that “President Trump further tightened requirements and has vowed to end dependency on the program, especially for illegal immigrants. Last month, the USDA said it would adopt new polices that would make it harder for certain groups to be eligible for the benefits.”
What’s missing from the article? Which I almost in fact copied and pasted above in full, is links to any data to show they are correct in their statements.
India has long had a field day putting Tariffs on American products. No longer acceptable!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 9, 2019
In the past via Twitter, the President has called himself the “Tariff Man,” I find irony funny.
….I am a Tariff Man. When people or countries come in to raid the great wealth of our Nation, I want them to pay for the privilege of doing so. It will always be the best way to max out our economic power. We are right now taking in $billions in Tariffs. MAKE AMERICA RICH AGAIN— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 4, 2018
Recent “strained” decisions by the United States Supreme Court, some so simple as allowing the question, “Are you a citizen of the United States” on our very expensive Census Report, or the even more strained decisions (2) allowing the world’s most expensive & pathetic……— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 9, 2019
….healthcare (Obamacare) to stay in place, when it would have been replaced by something far better, shows how incredibly important our upcoming 2020 Election is. I have long heard that the appointment of Supreme Court Justices is a President’s most important decision. SO TRUE!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 9, 2019
If the Census question was so easy, if it was legal and all, how come Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross lied about its inclusion?
How come the Administration did not add the question in the proper way?
Just for the record, the Census which is in fact a power granted to the Congress, and not the Executive, is designed to count “persons” not just citizens and non-citizens, FYI, non-citizens does not mean “illegal.”
The President re-tweeted Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), who like AG Barr, is pushing the idea that Mueller’s public testimony will be a “spectacle.”
Barr is absolutely right about the Mueller testimony being a public spectacle… that’s all it ever was.— Mark Meadows (@RepMarkMeadows) July 8, 2019
Democrats' Mueller messaging isn’t breaking through because no one cares—they want focus on their lives, not on the political collusion fantasy that was dead long ago. https://t.co/6ZBHp0DthK
Communism had McCarthy.
Watergate had John Dean.
Clarence Thomas had Anita Hill.
Bill Clinton had Ken Star.
Benghazi had Hillary Clinton.
Her Emails/Anti-Trump text messages had the Department of Justice Inspector General Daniel Horowitz, former FBI special agent Peter Strzok.
A look inside Trump’s campaign had Michael Cohen.
And it goes on and on, because spectacle or not, the public has a right to know.
This post will be updated within reason.
