In the 1992 presidential campaign, candidate Bill Clinton referred to himself as the “comeback kid” after his second-place finish in the New Hampshire primary. Only a slick candidate with the skill of Bill Clinton would be able to turn a loss by 8% into a victory. However, his characterization, supported by the media, gave his campaign momentum and he eventually won the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination and the White House.
In this campaign, the real “comeback kid” is President Donald Trump. Of course, unlike Clinton, he has had to endure constant negative media coverage and unrelenting abuse from Democrats, the Deep State and anti-Trump elements in the Republican Party. This President never received a honeymoon and was subjected to the Russia hoax, the Stormy Daniels investigation, a two-year Special Counsel witch hunt, the Ukraine hoax, impeachment and constant leaks and backstabbing from his own administration.
What should we do about Tara Reade?
Unless you've been on media lockdown lately, the lady somewhat has morphed into Joe Biden's running mate, of sorts. The Bidens, the Democrats, the media, and the anti-Trumpers are running away from her story, ready to explode. They must not. The past has long legs.
As the world begins a second month of lockdown in response to the nightmare known as the coronavirus, it is essential to examine how this mess developed and how we return to some semblance of normalcy.
As part of the quest for truth, the three types of lies must be identified: lies, damned lies and statistics.
It is a lie that COVID-19 originated at some wet market in Wuhan, China. The media and most of the scientific and medical communities are holding to that theory; however, we do not know definitively. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officials were not allowed into China to investigate the virus in the early stages. The communist Chinese government is notorious for lying and mistreating both its citizens and outsiders, so their statements verifying the wet market origins of the virus cannot be trusted.
In February, the nation added 273,000 jobs to the economy and the unemployment rate was only 3.5%. The Trump economy was booming, the stock market was hitting record highs and the American public was confident about the future of the economy. My, how times have changed.
Since that idyllic period, worries about the coronavirus have exploded and the nation’s economy has been essentially shut down, except for certain critical sectors. All indicators have moved to negative territory. For example, the stock market is down about 30% from its February all-time high.
The world is forever changed with the advent of this pandemic. The casualties may include traditional forms of greetings such as handshakes and hugging as more people embrace the new standard of “social distancing.”
Possibly, large public events will become rare occurrences. Fewer people will shop at retail locations or attend movie theaters, as the rush toward online shopping and entertainment will be accelerated. Popular modes of travel such as cruise ships may find fewer customers in the future as the many coronavirus worries may disturb American life for many years to come.
United States President Donald Trump has been doing a true public service each day by conducting his valuable and informative news conferences updating the nation on the coronavirus. He has provided Americans with a tremendous amount of crucial details on the race to stem the growth of the coronavirus. He also has been showcasing his excellent team of professionals who serve on the national coronavirus task force. These individuals are both experts and public servants as they have dedicated their time and effort to save the lives of Americans.
U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) just announced his intention to remain in the race for President. Sanders will debate former Vice President Joe Biden on Sunday in Arizona in the first one-on-one encounter of the campaign. It will take a miracle for Sanders to win the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination at this point. His preferences for socialist and communist dictatorships have come back to do tremendous harm to his electoral chances.
Last week, as the storm system that would later become Hurricane Barry formed in the Gulf of Mexico, the media hype was already beginning. The Weather Channel deployed a team of almost a dozen reporters to the Gulf Coast. The national newspapers and cable news networks led their coverage with reporting on potential devastation advancing toward the State of Louisiana.
While President Donald Trump is producing tremendous results for the United States economy, some left-wing analysts expect him to actually lose the 2020 election. According to polls by liberal media outlets CNN and Morning Consult/Politico, former Vice President Joe Biden is comfortably ahead of the President in a hypothetical 2020 presidential match-up.

At one time the media reported stories as they developed and made every effort to get it right. This required extensive interviews with several sources and double checking both the evidence provided and the sources of that evidence to verify the truth.
It was a matter of journalistic ethics to “get it right.” There was pride in being a journalist then and editors made certain that their media organs maintained a rigid 4elevel of unbiased accuracy that garnered public respect.
