In campaign ad, President Trump declares he will fix it

Published

on

At the Republican National Convention last year, then-candidate Trump declared, “Only I can fix it.” This statement drew criticism from the left for obvious reasons but also from the right because it sounded awfully Obamaesque. Only an overreaching president can “fix” things. That’s not their job. In a constitutional republic, the office of president should have less direct influence to “fix” things than the legislative branch.

Semantics aside, the President doubled down on this message with a new campaign ad. If we can go around the question of why the President is putting out a campaign ad for himself in three years before his next election, we still have to wonder about the messaging. I’m not going to comment on that. Just watch the video and see what you think.

Former liberal who recently realized I've been a #Federalist the whole time. GOP fooled me into hating what I thought was conservatism. Now I see the light.

Jeff Flake hot mic: “We’ve become the party of Roy Moore and Donald Trump. we are toast.”

Jeff Flake hot mic Weve become the party of Roy Moore and Donald Trump we are toast

Jeff Flake has a tendency to stick his foot in his mouth more often than not. This time, the retiring Arizona Senator was caught on a hot mic talking to the mayor of Mesa, AZ, John Giles. His comments matched the rhetoric he’s been spewing ever since Donald Trump became the GOP nominee for president.

“We’ve become the party of Roy Moore and Donald Trump; we are toast,”

Giles, who isn’t (wasn’t?) retiring, took the faux pas to another level with his response:

“And I am not throwing smoke at you, but you are the guy,” a grinning Giles responded. “Just for fun — think about how much fun it would be — just to be the foil, you know, and point out what an idiot this guy [Trump] is.”

With so much strife in both the Republican and Democratic Parties, it’s becoming more likely that they are, indeed, “toast.” Nevertheless, it hurts when the truth is spoken inadvertently to the public.

Mesa, AZ Mayor Caught on Hot Mic Encouraging Jeff Flake to Run Against ‘Idiot’ Trump in 2020 [VIDEO]

https://thepolitistick.com/mesa-az-mayor-caught-hot-mic-encouraging-jeff-flake-run-idiot-trump-2020-just-fun-video/Flakes office said that he had nothing additional to add. Giles responded in writing, claiming to be a “conservative Republican” concerned about the “party’s ethics” because of Judge Roy Moore, a Christian constitutional conservative and former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, who’s under attack by what appears as an orchestrated political character assassination led by Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell with accusation from 40 years ago, and Donald Trump.

Flake responded to Giles with giggles and walked away without answering or denying that he was considering a presidential run.

Jerry Jones to Roger Goodell: “I’m gonna come after you with everything I have”

Jerry Jones to Roger Goodell Im gonna come after you with everything I have

The NFL has problems, and I’m not talking about their lack of star power at the quarterback position. From dwindling attendance to the public relations nightmare of players kneeling, the NFL under Commissioner Roger Goodell has been in a state of a decline for a while.

Jerry Jones agrees. The Dallas Cowboy’s owner had some harsh words for the commissioner.

Then he mentioned Deflategate. “If you think Bob Kraft came after you hard, Bob Kraft is a p—y compared to what I’m going to do.”

Nobody knows what Jones is going to do. But at the age of 58, Goodell is fighting to keep his job. In public, he looks fresh and energetic, and he is more resolute than ever to leave with a legacy of having come close to fixing football’s long-standing issues. Up close, though, his face has changed due to relentless stress; it is now sallow and lined and tired. Roger Goodell is in a battle few saw coming, with the league’s membership teetering on an all-out, unprecedented civil war.

The White House has not lifted the ban on elephant trophies, yet

The White House has not lifted the ban on elephant trophies yet

Wide reports were circulated today that the Trump administration was lifting the Obama administration’s 2014 ban on bringing trophy elephants home from two African countries. Conservation groups were outraged by the decision and started protests in person and on social media. According to the White House, the lift on the ban had not been finalized, yet.

“There hasn’t been an announcement that’s been finalized on this front,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Thursday. “Until that’s done I wouldn’t consider anything final.”

Between 2007 and 2014, the population of African elephants fell by 30%. In a statement from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, reversing the ban would actually help the elephants. “Legal, well-regulated sport hunting as part of a sound management program can benefit certain species,” the government body said in a statement.

My Take

I’m not a hunter, but I have no problem with hunting in practice. One exception is when the animals being hunted are endangered. If this ban is a deterrent for those considering hunting endangered big game, then I’m all for it. Not sure why this needs to be a thing, but then again I’m no hunter. I don’t quite understand the appeal.

Opponents posted pictures of U.S. President Donald Trump’s sons Donald Jr. and Eric, who are avid hunters, posing with the cut-off tail of a slain elephant and other dead wild animals on Twitter.

“There hasn’t been an announcement that’s been finalized on this front,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters when asked about the reported policy shift on Thursday. “Until that’s done I wouldn’t consider anything final.”
