For the most part, the Lewandowski-Fields-Trump appears to be history.
What’s left will likely morph into a civil lawsuit or an apology or both.

Still, the credibility of all three protagonists of this play have been put into question.  Donald Trump and his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, first claimed the incident was bogus, then began to sing another tune once the video showing the actual “battery”,  emerged.  At that point, The Donald started to announce he was the victim as Michelle Fields “grabbed him” and further stated that the campaign manager Lewandowski was merely trying to protect the presidential candidate, from further danger.
I accept the Palm Beach District Attorney’s reasoning for deciding to drop the criminal action as being reasonable, considering all of the evidence presented.  Many Trump supporters are now claiming that the decision not to prosecute Trump vindicates the billionaire and that his side should be believed over that of the reporter.
Certainly, Trump knows his audience and knows that his followers will accept his version as gospel.  

However, there is still lingering questions that Trump was not honest and that the District Attorney possibly erred on the facts, even if he was correct on the ultimate decision—Lewandowski’s chances of succeeding at trial.
Here is a video that looks at the claims made, statements by the District Attorney and comments called lies.  One thing we have learned again with this ordeal—video tapes have longer memories than any, and all of us.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
