This article states: “Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Tuesday that she was unaware of intelligence assessments concluding that Russia favored President Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.”
I find that hard to believe. She doesn’t know what the intelligence agencies think about the most important security issue of recent years? Either she’s lying (my opinion) or incredibly uninformed. She’s just going along with Trump’s view. We are never going to have secure elections with these people in charge.
I watch a lot of CNN and this article is right on the money. The media only wants Democrats to talk about Trump, not their policies.
Most Americans support DACA. The most recent poll I could find shows 83% approval. Even 67% of Republicans support it.
However, Trump created a crisis by trying to end the program and Republican congressional leadership is not willing to let the House vote on bills to decide the fate of DACA.
Conservative Republicans don’t want a vote – they only care about politics. From this article:
“McCarthy had a blunter message, according to two members present who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe a private meeting and as first reported by Politico: Signing the discharge petition and paving the way for passage of a moderate immigration bill could hurt Republicans in November’s elections by depressing conservative turnout and upending leadership’s plans to focus on tax cuts and other GOP successes.”
This is a pathetic effort to avoid doing what the public wants. Sad!
This analysis states: “Wealthy donors who have given more than $1 million contributed one-third of the $383 million that flowed this election cycle into super PACs, which can accept unlimited contributions from individuals and corporations.”
It covers wealthy donors from both parties. We need to reduce the influence of rich people on our elections.
Trump turns almost every speech into a campaign rally. He did it again in Cleveland yesterday.
From this article: “Though billed as an official White House event, and therefore funded with taxpayer money, Trump was overtly political in his remarks ahead of Tuesday’s primary election. He celebrated his own poll numbers, repeatedly attacked Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and urged Ohioans to elect Rep. James B. Renacci (R-Ohio), who is running against Brown.”
This is obviously wrong. Trump needs to separate campaign events from presidential ones. Taxpayers should not be paying for his campaign.
Any network that covered the campaign part of his speech should give equal time to the Democrats.
I encourage everyone to register to vote!
