It’s Thursday.

Regular season NFL Football starts tonight with the Green Bay Packers traveling to Solider Field to face the Chicago Bears. Game time is @ 8:20 eastern time, 7:20 central time, and 5:20 pacific time.

For this Thursday President Donald Trump has tweeted 4 times.

The New Hollywood Feud.

The first shot.

President responded by telling a “sir story.”

Debra Messing “Will and Grace” sitcom star, faced backlash for her original call for donors to be personally targeted for their support of President Trump.

ET Canada.

Actress and The View host, Whoopi Goldberg likened Messings request of publishing President Trump’s donors list, to the Hollywood Blacklist, which listed names of Hollywood actors, directors, screen writers, suspected of having communist ties.

As Goldberg notes, several on the Hollywood Blacklist, lost their jobs, some even going so far as to commit suicide.

According to the FEC, individual donors from 1989 to present, are made public for any donation after $200 or more.


As *the News Blender reported on Wednesday the President shared an altered NOAA image of one of Hurricane Dorian’s paths.

The altered image from NOAA had what appeared to be black sharpie adding Alabama into Dorian’s path.

This started when President Trump falsely told the state of Alabama to be prepared for Dorian’s impact. Shortly after the warning the National Weather Service in Birmingham, Alabama, said that was incorrect, Dorian was not going to impact Alabama.

The President did what he does when he is proven incorrect, he doubled and tripled down on his falsehood.

Last night, following the sharing of the altered image that many users pointed out on Twitter, is a crime, the President double-tripled-down on his reason behind sharing the news that Alabama needed to be prepared for Dorian.

The fine print written under the image states:

NHC Advisories and County Emergency Management Statements supersede this product. This graphic should complement, not replace, NHS discussions. If anything on this graphic causes confusion, ignore the entire product.

Since the altering of the image is a crime, as noted by Cornell Law School:

Whoever knowingly issues or publishes any counterfeit weather forecast or warning of weather conditions falsely representing such forecast or warning to have been issued or published by the Weather Bureau, United States Signal Service, or other branch of the Government service, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ninety days, or both.

Cornell Law School.

What does President Trump do?

He of course calls reports that he was wrong fake news.

*I have corrected the spelling error in the linked News Blender article, alert-alerting-alerted now as it should have been is alter-altered-altering.

I do apologize for the error, and not catching it, at all, GretchensR alerted me to the altered spelling. 🙂


ADP and Moody’s Analytics released a report on Thursday ahead of the release of the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) jobs report on Friday.

According to the report, the private sector has added 195,000 jobs, beating the expected 140,000 jobs.

Last August according to the BLS report released on September 7th, 2018, nonfarm payroll employment increased by 201,000.


The New York Times, reported Thursday that according to a Senior Trump Official the special envoy for the Middle East Peace Plan would be leaving the administrations, “raising new questions about a long-delayed plan to resolve the Israel-Palestinian conflict.”

Greenblatt was working closely with President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, in order to design a Middle East Peace Plan, that President Trump has called the “ultimate deal.”

The plan has been in the making for over two-years, with little known about it, the Trump Official told the Times, the “vision is now complete and will be released when appropriate.”

There is no expectation that the plan will be released before September 17th, when Israel votes for Prime Minister.


Update.

He has sixth downed or maybe it’s seventh at this point.

The image President Trump tweeted out was NWS advisory number 21, sent on August 29th, 2019.

By August 30th, 2019, Advisory 25A shown below, shows that Alabama would not suffer impact from the storm. The tweet from NHC_Atlantic was sent at 2:00 p.m. on Friday.

The original mention of Alabama from President Trump was Sept. 1st, at 10:51 a.m. with @NWS Birmingham tweeting out at 11:11 a.m. that Alabama would see no impact from Dorian.

It should also be noted again, that someone, or President Trump himself, altered an image that was illegal to alter to prove President Trump correct, even though he was clearly inaccurate to include Alabama in getting hammered.

The tweet President Trump sent from Alabama National Guard was sent on August 30th, 2019 at 10:11 a.m.
