It’s Thursday.

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.

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.”

“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.


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.”


“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.)

Al Green Youtube May 5th, 2019.

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.

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.
