    McConnell is a snake in the grass. He needs to be taking care of his own district 1st. We went to the Mennonite community near by the other day to stock up on fresh vegetables. This community has been around since as far back as the late 60’s or early 70’s. Hard working people there. Stopped at my favorite stand and looked out in their huge gardens and they had mexicans out in the field picking their produce. WTH. I was totally taken back by this. I did not see a single young Mennonite youngster working in the fields like it had always been in the past. What is going on?

      I travelled on Sunday and stopped for gas in Iowa not far from the Illinois-Iowa border. At the gas station were a couple dozen Mexicans and two vans with New York state licence plates. The Mexicans were just hanging around, some inside buying cell phones. I didn’t know if they were illegals or farm workers. Hopefully the latter. In any case it was unsettling, they were clearly out of place at this small community’s gas station, stood out like a sore thumb and all looked super shady. Why New York plates??

    More winning. Anti-dumping duties levied against forged steel fittings from Taiwan.

    “Commerce determined that exporters from Taiwan have sold forged steel fittings in the United States at 116.17 percent less than fair value.”

    “Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to continue to collect cash deposits from importers of forged steel fittings from Taiwan based on these final rates.”

    Commerce Sec Wilbur Ross spent the day at Hudson Institute with Rep Lamar Smith, discussing and promoting U.S. leadership in space. 3 vids available at Hudson youtube site. https://www.youtube.com/user/hudsoninstitute/videos?disable_polymer=1

    Sec Ross makes one weary just watching him.

They are trying to “create an illusion” that doom is around the corner. PDJT just seems to be waiting them out. Just my view, but I always believed all turns out OK in the end.

Unfortunately, there is no subject matter there. Still doesn’t stop him from swinging for the fences and using trumped up charges.

    Another liberal freakout will insue. It’s like the boy who cried wolf with these people. If you listen to the tape closely you hear without a doubt trump say don’t pay with cash. And ends with saying the word check. Dershowitz and Giuliani both made the point that they were discussing setting up a corporation to do so and corporations pay with checks. So it’s pretty simple unless you suffer from Trump derrangement syndrome

    First of all, I am disgusted that this tape was released. Secondly, and more importantly, who gives a rats behind if he “paid someone off” to not reveal he had sex with them? I am sure President Trump, in his civilian life, had many people try to extort money from him. And there may have been times he did just pay someone off to make it go away, even if he didn’t do what he was accused of. The only possible crime I see here is a whore trying to blackmail a presidential candidate and then breaking the agreement. What am I missing that everyone is so upset about (other than the obvious corruption of our FBI and DOJ). This will have no effect on President Trump just like the Bush tape and all the previous accusers had no effect. Of course, CNN, etc. will go nuts and think they “got Trump” but they’ll be wrong again. And if it did ever come to them attempting to impeach President Trump I will be on my way to DC and I think I would be joined by many others.

    Remember this? Why wasn’t it used on the Russians if they were interfering with the 2016 election? IDK…..

    GEC: (INFO) The Global Engagement Center is charged with leading the U.S. government’s efforts to counter propaganda and disinformation from international terrorist organizations and foreign countries. The Secretary of State established the Global Engagement Center (GEC) in April 2016 pursuant to President Barack Obama’s Executive Order #13721. The GEC was subsequently codified into law by 114th Congress (2015-2016) in the Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which defined its mission as being to “lead, synchronize, and coordinate efforts of the Federal Government to recognize, understand, expose, and counter foreign state and non-state propaganda and disinformation efforts aimed at undermining United States national security interests.” The legislation originated as bipartisan bills introduced into both the House and the senate entitled Information Warfare Act, that was renamed and incorporated into the final bill. The GEC and its partners have established programming across multiple platforms, including social media, satellite television, radio, film, and print. This programming is conducted in various languages, including Arabic, Urdu, Somali, and French. The Washington Post and the International Business Times reported that after the 2016 U.S. presidential election, worries grew that propaganda spread and organized by the Russian government swayed the outcome of the election, and representatives in the U.S. Congress took action to safeguard the National security of the United States by advancing legislation to monitor incoming propaganda from external threats.
