Are you ready for some football?
Facing off for Thursday night are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Carolina Panthers.
Are you ready for another Democratic Presidential Debate?
There will be a thread, I will try to include a live feed or two for the event that is scheduled to last three hours, and feature ten of the candidates still running for the Democrat nomination.
The President has so far for this Friday Eve, tweeted 6 times.
European Central Bank, acting quickly, Cuts Rates 10 Basis Points. They are trying, and succeeding, in depreciating the Euro against the VERY strong Dollar, hurting U.S. exports…. And the Fed sits, and sits, and sits. They get paid to borrow money, while we are paying interest!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 12, 2019
CNBC News reported that the European Central Bank (ECB) has announced a massive new bond-buying program, lowered interest rates to -0.5 percent, a record low, but within market expectations.
Market Watch reported that outgoing ECB President Mario Draghi said that “stubbornly low inflation, which remains well below the ECB’s target of near but just below 2%, was the main driver for the decision.”
Along with lowering the deposit rate, the ECB policy makers also relaunched its quantitative easing program starting on November 1st. The ECB is expected to being buying 20 billion euros ($21.9 billion) a month for “as long as necessary.”
As you will recall on Wednesday, the President referred to policy makers from the Federal Reserve Bank as “boneheads.”

Farmers will be a a very BIG and FAST beneficiary of our deal with China. They intend to start purchasing agricultural product immediately. We make the finest and cleanest product in the World, and that is what China wants. Farmers, I LOVE YOU!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 3, 2018

The negotiations with China have already started. Unless extended, they will end 90 days from the date of our wonderful and very warm dinner with President Xi in Argentina. Bob Lighthizer will be working closely with Steve Mnuchin, Larry Kudlow, Wilbur Ross and Peter Navarro…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 4, 2018
……on seeing whether or not a REAL deal with China is actually possible. If it is, we will get it done. China is supposed to start buying Agricultural product and more immediately. President Xi and I want this deal to happen, and it probably will. But if not remember,……— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 4, 2018
….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
I had a great meeting with President Xi of China yesterday, far better than expected. I agreed not to increase the already existing Tariffs that we charge China while we continue to negotiate. China has agreed that, during the negotiation, they will begin purchasing large…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 29, 2019
….amounts of agricultural product from our great Farmers. At the request of our High Tech companies, and President Xi, I agreed to allow Chinese company Huawei to buy product from them which will not impact our National Security. Importantly, we have opened up negotiations…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 29, 2019
“China has agreed that, during the negotiation, they will begin purchasing large……..amounts of agricultural product from our great Farmers.”
The U.S. and China trade teams are scheduled to meet in D.C. in early October.
Some really big Court wins on the Border lately!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 12, 2019
As the News Blender explained on Thursday morning the “Supreme Court issued a ruling yesterday, granting a stay to the U.S. Government on the matter of Barr. v East Bay Sanctuary Covenant. The decision was not on the merits of the case, as has been implied by some news sources like the BBC. It was also not about the ability of a single lower court judge to block a Presidential order, as has been presented by other places like Fox News.”

“Dems have never gotten over the fact that President Trump won the Election!” @GOPLeader McCarthy— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 12, 2019
“We can’t beat him, so lets impeach him!” Democrat Rep. Al Green— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 12, 2019
“We can’t beat him, so lets impeach him!” Democrat Rep. Al Green
From an exhaustive search the nearest actual quote from Democrat Rep. Al Green (Texas), happened in May, where he appeared on an MSNBC show and said:
Green: I’m Concerned if we don’t impeach this President, he will get re-election. If we don’t impeach he will say he has been vindicated. (1:43 minute mark.)
Ballotpedia says that Green won in 2018 with 89 percent of the vote beating two independent candidates, and a Libertarian candidate. A republican did not run. He has been in office fourteen years.
At the time of Green’s statement on MSNBC, the President tweeted, as you know he likes to do.
“Democrat Texas Congressman Al Green says impeachment is the only thing that can prevent President Trump from re-election in 2020.” @OANN In other words, Dems can’t win the election fairly. You can’t impeach a president for creating the best economy in our country’s history…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 6, 2019
Also, there are “No High Crimes & Misdemeanors,” No Collusion, No Conspiracy, No Obstruction. ALL THE CRIMES ARE ON THE OTHER SIDE, and that’s what the Dems should be looking at, but they won’t. Nevertheless, the tables are turning!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 6, 2019
In response to today’s tweet Green tweeted, cause that’s the new normal. 🙁
Authors Note: There will be an article posted later today regarding the Judiciary Committees hearing that focused on set rules as to how they move forward and if they will recommended articles of impeachment in front of the full House.
This post will be updated within reason.
