clinton trump tweetWednesday was Trump Day.  Donald Trump visited Mexico and last night, in Arizona, laid out his foreign-policy agenda in a nationally-televised powerful performance.

So, a few minutes ago, I decided to take a trip through my twitter feeds, type in the terms Trump and Clinton--just to see what was hot, timely and important.

Obviously, the major theme on the feeds was Mexico Trump and immigration. The Question is whether or not he was successful in both his visit with the Mexican president and in the long-awaited speech on illegal immigration.

Then according to the tweets, there are the polls. Unquestionably there has been a tightening in the race and twitter feed shows that very fact.  At this point, at least, Trump still has his work cut out based upon a just release from USA today Suffolk.

Of course, Clinton, as usual, has her continuing ba-news story updated and again, it is centered upon her email and the Clinton foundation.  Another day, another story--this one by Politico which indicates that public funds were used for some of the foundation expenses. However, the Clinton camp is disputing this politico game.

Interestingly, one of the more curious tweets relates to a statement by the former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski . Lewandowski states Trump speech was to rev up the white male vote for Trump.

I would say he was successful.  But, in the long run, I'm not so sure that it was the winning message if he intends to get the Hispanic, black and the suburban college educated votes.

That might take a few more speeches, of a different tone and kind.

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.
