John Kennedy has become somewhat of a folk hero on cable TV since his moving from the Louisiana Treasurer’s office to the US Senate. He’s somewhat of the go-to guy for quips and quotes on the burning issues of the day.
This morning, he appeared on CNN’s New Day. The issue? Of course, President Donald Trump and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.
Since their joint appearance on Monday, there has been much speculation, outrage, counter-outrage by the media, the left and the right over whether Trump presented a strong image last week at the NATO conference and in Finland, at the summit.
Donald Trump thinks we’re all fools, based on his embrace of a long-standing enemy, Russia. Ignore all the people who were shot trying to climb the Berlin wall that Ronald Reagan demanded Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev tear down. Forget the Hungarians who were mowed down when that country sought to throw off the yoke of the USSR. What better way to besmirch the memory of all the U.S. men and women who died in Vietnam, killed by Russian arms, than to embrace Russia? The list goes on and on, throughout the post-war era, consisting of continuous Russian affronts to decency and human rights.
Donald Trump, fresh from threatening to blow up NATO for a couple of bucks in Brussels, landed in London and jumped straightaway into British politics when he endorsed the resigned, rouge, foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, for the position of P.M. Trump didn’t stop there, though, and told the Brits that if they don’t see things his way, hereafter, we won’t trade with them, anymore, as we have in the past. The blame for this, Trump said, should Britain fail to amend its course, will fall to the current P.M., Theresa May. It’ll be a harsh penalty for May’s neglecting to follow the undisclosed advice Trump says he gave her about BREXIT, the divorce of Britain from Europe that Russia, allegedly, nudged along.

President George Washington composed his Farewell Address upon leaving office. He focused on the need to preserve the unity among Americans and to be guarded against the attempts by some to destroy our national unity:
Make America Great Again has been the rallying cry since the onset of Donald Trump’s bid for the presidency. In fact, according to many experts, during the course of his brief presidency, the economy pretty much has been great. Part of the reason so far has been Trump’s relaxation of regulations which businesses have found suffocating. Also, many experts and business people point to the recent tax break. But, what exactly does “Make America Great Again” mean in the area of its economy?
Oyez, Oyez! Donald Trump should appoint himself to the Supreme Court, which would confer significant advantages on him, the nation, and a judiciary already burdened with cases that pertain to the president, in official and private capacities. The only requirement to be a supreme court justice is senate confirmation and Mike Pence, surely, would cast any tiebreaker in Trump’s favor because it’d make Pence president, however briefly.
Many years ago, Democrats were known for their staunch support of peaceful protests and our First Amendment rights guaranteeing free speech. Today, party activists have become intolerant, hateful and in too many cases violent.
It seems that almost every week a Trump administration official or supporter is being harassed by leftist protesters. It happened to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Senior White House Policy Advisor Stephen Miller and former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. Of course, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was not allowed to eat dinner at the Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington, Virginia because of her support for the President’s policies.
When President Trump was culling down his final list of Supreme Court nominees, one thing was certain - no consideration would be given to any judge sitting in New Orleans on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Yesterday, it happened again as Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt was harassed at a restaurant while eating lunch. This is the fifth Trump cabinet member or supporter that has been targeted in recent days. Never before have so many cabinet members of a presidential administration been badgered in public by political opponents
“We declared clearly that the Russian government did not meddle in U.S. processes, does not meddle and moreover did not meddle in the 2016 elections,” according to Putin aide, Yuri Ushakov, as reported by the New York Times.
It’s reassuring that Russia can still be trusted, though there’s a worry about the triple negative Ushakov uses in his general denial. Math aside, the president, allegedly, will straighten it all out when he meets in summit with Vladimir Putin next month, at which time superlatives will be expressed and best smiles flashed. The event, however, could do some good if it’s a substantive meet and not a P.R. stunt.
Filmmaker Michael Moore announced that his upcoming documentary, Fahrenheit 11/9, will be released on September 21. In the film, Moore will attempt to politically damage President Donald Trump by taking a “provocative and comedic look at the times in which we live.” In addition, Moore claims that his documentary will focus on “How the hell we got in this situation, and how we’re going to get out of it."
Might President Donald Trump, whose anti-regulations policies have helped boost the economy, reverse some of the country’s gains with his trade policy, specifically tariffs and potential trade war?
That appears to be the question that many economists and business persons are wondering right now as the tariffs have begun but has not filtered down to some of the component manufacturer’s yet. Yet! Which is the point that Jay Lapeyre appears to be making in my interview that I did with him yesterday.
