dukeThe clock is ticking and the anxious are waiting.

David Duke has not yet officially (or unofficially) qualified for US Congress.

Early this month, the former Louisiana State representative he said he was considering running versus Steve Scalise, number three in the chain of Republican House leaders.  Congressman Scalise is holding the congressional seat of District One.

Duke lives in that district, is reportedly upset at Scalise for a comment during the Scalise-Duke controversy from 2014.  Also, Duke is said to be incentivized because of the success of Donald Trump's campaign, who presumably has been targeting the same audience

Duke has stated that whites would be committing treason if they did not vote for Trump.  The social media, particularly twitter has been swarming with right wingers promoting the Trump cause and intimidating Jews and others who speak out against Trump.

Recently the following was reported about Duke :

He repeated his belief that Trump, who has notoriously shared the Twitter messages of white supremacists, include one with the handle @WhiteGenocideTM, has given white nationalists an opportunity to go “on the offensive.” 

                                                                   
I love what Trump’s doing. I think that Trump is a breath of fresh air. I don’t know exactly what he’s going to do when he’s in but I think it’s great what he’s doing. But I tell you something, we have got to continue to take this another step, we have got to continue to go on the offensive in this battle. As far as I’m concerned, I’m going to vote for Trump, I said I supported Trump, I’ve been aligned with Trump from very early in this campaign, as you have, but there’s no question in my mind that we need at least one guy in the United States Congress, whether in the House of Representatives or the Senate, at least one guy that will openly stand up for the rights and the heritage of European-Americans and I believe that the time is right.                                                     

 
However, with only one day left to qualify, the uncertain are still uncertain.

Maybe to titilate our curiosities, his web site today posts the follow image.

Dr. Duke Exposes the Craven Traitor Ted Cruz and Why We Must Bring Down the Political and Media Establishment! Will Duke Run?

So, is he running for Congress or Senate?  

The clock ticks in suspense.

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.
