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.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
