It didn’t make headlines, but apparently Mueller did make a move before Labor Day. Many media outlets waited breathlessly for something like an indictment of one of Trump’s sons, or a report calling for action on Trump himself. Instead, the Special Counsel’s office sent a letter to Trump’s attorneys with requests for written responses regarding Russia and the election. According to the unnamed sources, the questions steered away from obstruction. This is the best case scenario for Trump since written answers will help him avoid the “perjury trap” that his attorneys had feared. Trump shoots from the hip when he shoots his mouth off and is notorious for conflicting and changing statements. Written answers will allow him and his lawyers to get their story straight and on the record.
Massachusetts is on track to make history. For their state, that is. The extreme liberal state will likely have their first African American Congresswoman after Ayanna Pressley beat out incumbent Michael Capuano in the Tuesday primary. Pressley and Capuano saw eye to eye on many things, but Pressley was definitely more anti-cop. She also is a Democratic Socialist, calling for Medicare for all and the 100% tax hike that goes with it, and the abolition of ICE. Although, it’s not clear if she actually means that or like Ocasio-Cortez thinks abolition of ICE just means stopping the agents from raping women and razing villages in a manner like Ghengis Khan. I think I might be mixing up quotes there.
Capuano responded to the loss saying “America is going to be OK”. I suppose we will be, as long as we can keep Pressley’s anti-cop, open borders, extreme tax hikes and Medicare for all policies from becoming mainstream. Although we do need to congratulate the extremely liberal northern state of Massachusetts for finally joining Florida, Texas, North Carolina, Alabama and some of the other backwards redneck states in finally electing an African American woman to Congress. You’re a little late in the game, but I guess better late than never.
The Florida race for governor is too close to call according to a new Quinnipiac poll. Quinnipiac, which typically leans a couple points to the left, has the race at 50-47 with Andrew Gillum in the lead. Gillum played the race card on Ron DeSantis within 24 hours of his primary victory, and he has struggled with questions of how to pay for his socialist agenda. Gillum has also called for a “confederacy of states” to pass Medicare for all, and admitted that he intends to make Florida the highest tax state in the south. Gillum has also called for relaxed borders and the abolition of ICE, whatever that means.
DeSantis is running on conservative libertarian values and has promised to continue the success of Governor Scott in Florida. The Cato institute has ranked Florida as the #1 state when it comes to freedom. The state also has a below average unemployment rate and has continued to see sustained economic growth since Scott was elected. DeSantis made this point when he asked why Florida would want to harm it’s great economy with socialism. Unfortunately, leftists only heard the word “monkey” in his phrase “monkey it up”. Leftists and some in the media ignored the entire comment and assumed DeSantis was secretly calling Gillum a monkey to elicit support from white supremacists.
Sorry, it’s so ridiculous I had a hard time even writing that. I guess Harry Reid was right. Democrats will say whatever it takes to win elections as long as it furthers their agenda.
