There is so much going on this week I feel its appropriate to do what’s called a notes column on multiple news events.
The liberal left media is screaming about Trump’s DOJ requesting Canadian authorities to arrest China’s Huawei Technologies CFO Meng Wanzhou for the company’s violating Iran sanctions by trading with the country.
Why is this not Trump doing what is right against a firm that has been linked to spying on US citizens and stealing technology from American tech firms without paying royalties for the use.
No the media are saying Trump is trying to ignite further trade wars with China, which is taking down the stock market. If Trump did nothing it would then be China collusion.
Did you see some of the video of George H W Bush’s funeral on Wednesday?
There is a clip of Hillary Clinton opening up her program and an envelope falls out of it. She opens it and two seconds later puts it back in the envelope. Former President Jimmy Carter sitting next to her looks into his booklet to see if he has an envelope, which he did not, and asks his wife Rosalynn and she shakes her head no.
Then there is a clip of George W Bush’s wife Laura looking at a similar envelope given to her by her husband as her face grows dark. She shows her brother-in-law Jeb and his face goes from a slight smile to that of dread as his shoulders fall into his body.
Not sure what these notes said, but I’m sure it was not condolences.But we can assume the note was very short, due to the quickness of the readers reactions.
These were targeted messages to Hillary Clinton and Bush II, which was allowed to be inserted into their programs by their Secret Service detail.
The White House leaked Thursday that President Trump is considering nominating William Barr to be the next Attorney General.
Suggesting that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker’s tenure will be similar to Anthony Scaramucci’s role as White House Director of Communications for 10 days to blow it up and get some troublesome staff to leave.
Whitaker will do the needed declassification of the FISA documents perhaps and then turn the office over to Barr who served as AG under Bush II.
It’s funny, I wasn’t aware that the president was a baseball fan, but he uses some staff as specialty relief pitchers, who come in to face one batter (or problem) and then leave the game.
