Trump Ongoing Investigations

Follow the money!

Trump may be doing "victory laps" for now, but his numerous investigations are not over. For instance, the Southern District of NY currently has ongoing investigations into the Trump family and their business practices. State level crimes can not be pardeoned by the Federal Government, so this could be very promblematic for the office of the President down the line. There are still so many unanswered questions about "Trump University" (which Trump had to pay a 25 MILLION dollar settlement), his charity shifting funds to for profit ventures , and others. It is back to "reality", now.

The Mueller Report

Womp Womp.

While we, and presumably Donald Trump himself, can only speculate what is in the Muller report, his Attorney General made a rash decision to release HIS thoughts on the report, but not the report itself. Nearly half of American polled indicated they think Trump obstructed the Russian probe. While we wait for the full report to be released, to fully exonerate the President, it is important to keep in mind that Mueller and his team are not legally allowed to speak about the matter. That makes the conversation VERY ONE SIDED, dont you think? The full report should be released so everyone can make up their own minds. How about releasing those tax returns as well?

Healthcare 2020

Who knew healthcare could be so complicated?

The Republicans and Donald Trump want to get rid of the Affordable Care Act, and replace it with something new. It is possible they do not want to replace it at all, and to let those who are poor or elderly die in the streets. Trump tweeted "The Republican Party will become “The Party of Healthcare!”", while hoping to gut protections for  tens of millions of Americans. In February, a Kaiser Family Foundation poll found 50% approval for the ACA, it has been more popular since OBama has left office.

Beat Beto

Anonymous's picture
Dear President Trump, I think your most formidable Democratic candidate just dropped out. I'm shocked. I thought he was going to give you a run for your money. What happened?? What happened?? What happened?? Former Representative Beto O’Rourke of Texas announced on Friday that he was dropping out of the presidential race, ending a campaign in which he struggled for months to recapture the energy of his insurgent 2018 Senate candidacy on a national stage full of other big personalities and liberal champions. Mr. O’Rourke made the decision to quit the race in the middle of this week, on the eve of a gathering of Democratic presidential candidates in Iowa, according to people familiar with his thinking. He is not expected to run for any other office in 2020, despite persistent efforts by party leaders and political donors to coax him into another bid for the Senate. His campaign has been under an extreme financial strain, and Mr. O’Rourke’s advisers concluded that proceeding in the race might have meant making deep cuts to his staff in order to pay for advertising and other measures to compete in the early primary and caucus state. Mr. O’Rourke confirmed his withdrawal in a post on Medium and in an email message to his supporters. In that message, Mr. O’Rourke said he was proud of championing issues like guns and climate change but conceded that his campaign lacked “the means to move forward successfully.” “My service to the country will not be as a candidate or as the nominee,” he said. By leaving the race, Mr. O’Rourke completes the winding path from his early status as a potential front-runner to his drastic decision over the summer to reframe his candidacy as an activist crusader following the mass shooting targeting Latinos in his home city of El Paso. Since then, Mr. O’Rourke has campaigned doggedly on issues related to guns and race, calling most notably for federal gun-control policies that would require owners of assault-style weapons to surrender them to the government. That’s a far more aggressive stance than most Democratic presidential candidates have endorsed. That last phase of his campaign has taken Mr. O’Rourke far beyond the early-state circuit, and included visits with prison inmates in California and an immigrant community in Mississippi. In an August interview following the El Paso massacre, Mr. O’Rourke said his focus would be “taking the fight to [you] Donald Trump” and “being with those who have been denigrated and demeaned.” a group of people standing in front of a crowd: Beto O’Rourke announced his exit from the race to supporters in Des Moines, Iowa, on Friday evening. In recent weeks, he has also criticized other Democrats in newly strident terms, declaring in September that Senator Chuck Schumer, the New York Democrat and Senate minority leader, had accomplished “absolutely nothing” on gun control. Mr. Schumer, an architect of gun control legislation in the 1990s, said he saw no support in the party for Mr. O’Rourke’s stance on requiring gun owners to surrender certain firearms. At a rally in Des Moines on Friday evening, Mr. O’Rourke told supporters he made his decision “so recently and so reluctantly.’’ “We have to clearly see at this point that we do not now have the means” to continue, he said, adding: “Though this is the end of this campaign, we are right in the middle of this fight.” In a hallway outside the venue of an Iowa Democrats dinner, where Mr. O’Rourke had been scheduled to appear, a black-draped table for his campaign was abandoned Friday night. Passers-by helped themselves from the roll of “Beto” stickers sitting on the table, near a cardboard box full of one-sheet guides to “our most common cheers.” “So sad!” a woman exclaimed as she walked by. “It’s so sad.” Mr. O’Rourke entered the 2020 primary in the middle of March with the aura of a celebrity, cheered by rank-and-file Democrats and admired by no less a figure than former President Barack Obama for his near-miss challenge to Senator Ted Cruz in the nation’s largest red state. He effectively unveiled his run for the White House in a cover story for Vanity Fair in which he declared he was “just born to be in it.” He later described the cover, along with his choice of words, as a mistake. In the earliest days of his campaign, Mr. O’Rourke was a fund-raising powerhouse, collecting more than $6 million in his first day as a candidate. But his fund-raising cratered almost immediately. He raised more in his first 48 hours than in the following 100 days, and steadily depleted his campaign treasury by spending more than he was taking in. And despite the near-heroic status he achieved in the eyes of Democratic voters as a daring challenger to a Republican they loathed — Mr. Cruz — Mr. O’Rourke found it far more difficult to stand out from a crop of presidential candidates that included other young orators, like Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., and determined progressives like Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. Mr. O’Rourke also came under harsh attack in a June debate from Julián Castro, the former housing secretary and a fellow Texan, who blasted Mr. O’Rourke from the left on immigration. Mr. O’Rourke, who was not an especially strong debater in his Senate campaign, appeared badly caught off guard. To Mr. O’Rourke and his allies, it has been evident for some time that he was confronting a vanishingly slim path forward. At the last Democratic debate, a pair of Mr. O’Rourke’s donors flew to Ohio to meet with him about his campaign and the possibility of him quitting the race to run for Senate in Texas against John Cornyn, who is up for re-election. Mr. O’Rourke told them he was not running for Senate, according to people familiar with the matter. A spokesman to Mr. O’Rourke reiterated that stance on Friday. “Beto will not be a candidate for U.S. Senate in Texas in 2020,” said Rob Friedlander, an aide to Mr. O’Rourke. It is unclear whether Mr. O’Rourke’s exit will have a significant impact on the larger shape of the Democratic primary race. In a New York Times/Siena College poll released on Friday, Mr. O’Rourke was supported by just 1 percent of likely Democratic caucusgoers in Iowa. He had not yet met the thresholds for participating in the upcoming primary debates in November and December. Mr. O’Rourke may find — as other former candidates have done — that the goodwill of his fellow Democrats returns quickly once he is no longer a competitor for the nomination. He is 47 years old, leaving him plenty of time to consider a return to electoral politics. But in a recent interview with Politico, Mr. O’Rourke said that if he did not prevail in the 2020 presidential primary he would not become a candidate again. “I cannot fathom a scenario where I would run for public office again if I’m not the nominee,” Mr. O’Rourke said last month.
