Pence’s mysterious cancellation of flight to New Hampshire answered

 

Earlier this month, Vice President Mike Pence canceled a trip to New Hampshire at the last minute without giving any explanation.

It was an odd story, and of course made more curious since it has been hanging out there since forever as to the cause. So here it is. It sounded like another feel good story about sin and redemption. Druggie makes good. Pence highlights a good story.

Trump may want to consider how his last feel good story is going as he continues to hand out pardons and commutations. Earlier post tells us that the much heralded bill that gives bad guys another chance doesn’t just include low level offenders. First Step Act release of criminals include Rapists, Murderers

The vice president had to abruptly end the trip. When word got out that the flight had been canceled, Pence’s aides were quiet on the details as to why.

Now, it appears the journey was scrapped because Pence was moments away from shaking hands with an alleged drug dealer, Politico reported.

Pence was scheduled to speak at the Granite Recovery Center headquarters in New Hampshire, where he was set to address the “opioid crisis and illegal drug flow in New Hampshire.”

That individual was former New York Giants player Jeff Hatch.

Hatch had been under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration for moving more than $100,000 worth of fentanyl across state lines.

On Friday, Hatch pleaded guilty to the drug charges in federal court, where he now faces up to four years in prison.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib: ‘Israel exists to the detriment of Palestine’

 

Rep. Rashida Tlaib famed for the more appropriately called “hate America squad” made her rounds on Sunday with Jake Tapper on CNN. Even Tapper had to raise an eyebrow or two on her claim that “Israel exists to the detriment of Palestine.”

One can only wonder how these four women manage to suck up the air time. But of course they are a media sensation, and the media are the drivers of their fame less we forget. Without media attention they would be no more than four freshmen Reps like any others.

The Palestinian-American Congresswoman recently co-sponsored a resolution in the House with Rep. Ilhan Omar to support the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

She and 17 other lawmakers voted against a House resolution to condemn BDS last week. She compared the BDS movement to the American boycott of Nazi Germany.

Exactly, we should remember the boycott. The American boycott came years late, after millions of Jews and other minorities were losing their freedoms of expression, loss of possessions, and ultimately their lives.

Happy Independence Day! This Is My Country!

 

At this time of anxious concern for our Nation, as concerned as we are, consider the anxiety of the 56 men and what they were willing to do for us on this day so many years ago.

Together “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

They were mostly men of means who had much to lose if the war was lost. One-third served as militia officers during the war. Four of the signers were taken captive during the war and nearly all of them were poorer at the end of the war than at the beginning. 

The ages of the signers ranged from 26 (Edward Rutledge) to 70 (Benjamin Franklin), but the majority of the signers were in their thirties or forties. More than half of the signers were lawyers and the others were planters, merchants and shippers.

Many of them probably expected to die.

They signed anyway.

Consider the day these men signed this document and then went home to share their dinner with their wives and children. As we enjoy our day, consider the table talk these families had at the time. The worry and strain. It pales in comparison.

Wishing everyone a wonderful Independence Day.

Democrat candidates can’t dream up enough to give away for a vote

Whatever it takes to get a vote. I recall the days when it was illegal to sell alcohol on election day in our State. It harkened back to the days when candidates would try and buy a vote with a drink.

We have Fauxcahontas giving the LGBT Community reparations, apparently Black reparations are not enough. Here

 
Biden? He says 22 Million illegals will become legal.

There was a time not so long ago when most Americans would think all of this totally absurd.

Here is the big one for the kiddies. This should bankrupt us.

Other than that, all is well in the swamp.

A Guide to Trump’s foreign business interests

 

If you are interested in what world-wide assets Trump holds, this may be of interest to you. Clearly the intent of the open Secrets post is to cast aspersions on Trump and it becomes clear. Setting that aside, I have wondered myself just what and where are Trump’s financial interests. Wander over for some decent maps:

Trump continued to hold more than $130 million in foreign assets in a revocable trust as his second year in office came to a close, according to OpenSecrets’ analysis of the president’s most recent annual personal financial disclosure released by the Office of Government Ethics last month.Trump’s business entanglements continue to leave him with positions, assets, trademarks and other business interests in more than 30 countries.

Here you can see what countries are spending the most on lobbying and influence in the United States. FARA map linked at below at Open secrets

 

When it comes to foreign properties, the Trump Organization often charges a licensing fee to put the Trump name on the building and in some cases agrees to manage the property in exchange for a cut of the profits. This business model allows Trump to put his name on as many hotels and golf courses as possible while mitigating risk.

Texas gained almost nine Hispanics for every White last year

 

 

New census estimates show Texas’ Hispanic population growth continues to surpass white population growth, with Hispanics on pace to soon represent a plurality.

The 2016 United States presidential election in Texas was won by Republican Donald Trump by a 9% margin over Democrat Hillary Clinton. As we eye 2020 we would be wise to look at the changing demographics. By 2022 it is estimated that the plurality of the population will be Hispanics:

The gap between Texas’ Hispanic and white populations continued to narrow last year when the state gained almost nine Hispanic residents for every additional white resident.

With Hispanics expected to become the largest population group in Texas as soon as 2022, new population estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau showed the Hispanic population climbed to nearly 11.4 million — an annual gain of 214,736 through July 2018 and an increase of 1.9 million since 2010.

The white population, meanwhile, grew by just 24,075 last year. Texas still has a bigger white population — up to 11.9 million last year — but it has only grown by roughly 484,000 since 2010. The white population’s growth has been so sluggish this decade that it barely surpassed total growth among Asian Texans, who make up a tiny share of the total population, in the same time period.

Soon to become a plurality, the Hispanic population in Texas has grown massively since 2010. Meanwhile, the white population is barely staying ahead of the Asian population in growth.

Race 2010 population 2018 population estimate Increase
Hispanic 9,460,921 11,368,849 1,907,928
Black 2,899,884 3,441,644 541,760
White 11,428,638 11,912,849 484,211
Asian 960,543 1,433,736

Dem Rep Norma Torres is sick of all the ‘sex-starved males’ in the House of Rep

 

Classy! Dem Rep. Norma Torres is sick of all the ‘sex-starved males’ in the House who have the wrong opinion on abortion!

Norma Torres
Representatives for California’s 35th congressional district.

 

Quote of the day and that is for sure.

As I recall, members cannot personally impugn their colleagues on the floor. Are they not suppose to be censored? But of course not. The House of Representatives descending into chaos.

Torres, is one of the newest members of the House Rules Committee.Rules? What Rules. I would say she broke House Rules.

 

 

 

 

 

Still wondering if I am right about Rules being followed? Let’s take a look at a Nadler clip back in May and how he runs his shop. This is how it goes when there is no hearing promotion and just a few are watching C-Span 3.

If there is any question about the functioning of the Committee of Nadler’s Judiciary, take a few seconds out to observe the chaos. The Democrats are opining that Trump is becoming a Dictator?
