Here is a poll that President Trump can finally get excited about. In a poll conducted by CNN, and actually reported by them, that President Trump’s approval rating has gone up. According to them, Trumps approval rating is 51 percent. That is up from being 37% in February during the government shutdown. Now it seems that Americans are happy with the economy and therefore, happy with him.
Some Republicans took to Twitter celebrating the poll.
it will be interesting to see how the polls will be affected after the Mueller report comes out. But all in all, this is positive for Trump and America.
Congressman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) made some stunning allegations against the State Department and some sitting U.S. ambassadors during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday night.
Congressman Mark Meadows went on Sean Hannity and made allegations that the some State Department and some sitting ambassadors have conspired with the DOJ to undermine the presidency of Donald Trump. He claims that soon to be released documents will show that Trump is completely innocent of collusion with Russia. But it will expose people in our government that were “actively” working to take Trump down.
Meadows boldly claims, “I think when the American people see what I’ve seen, they will judge for themselves and know that this has all been a hoax.”
This is coming out just a week after Lisa Page admitted there was a plan to create a false ‘Russain collusion” story to derail Trump.
California GOP Rep. Devin Nunes filed a major lawsuit seeking $250 million in compensatory damages and $350,000 in punitive damages against Twitter and a handful of its users on Monday, accusing the social media site of “shadow-banning conservatives” including himself to influence the 2018 elections, explicitly and systematically censoring opposing viewpoints and “ignoring” lawful complaints of repeated abusive behavior.
California GOP Rep. Devin Nunes and a handful of others have filed a lawsuit against Twitter for $250 million in compensatory damages and $350,000 in punitive damages. They are accusing the social media business for “shadow-banning conservatives” by secretly hiding their posts, censoring their different viewpoints and then ignoring the complaint of repeated abusive behavior.
In a complaint filed in Virginia state court on Monday, obtained by Fox News, Nunes claimed Twitter wanted to derail his work on the House Intelligence Committee, which he chaired until 2019, as he looked into alleged and apparent surveillance abuses by the government. Nunes said Twitter was guilty of “knowingly hosting and monetizing content that is clearly abusive, hateful and defamatory – providing both a voice and financial incentive to the defamers – thereby facilitating defamation on its platform.”
The lawsuit alleged defamation, conspiracy and negligence, as well as violations of the state’s prohibition against “insulting words” — effectively fighting words that tend towards “violence and breach of the peace.” The complaint sought not only damages, but also an injunction compelling Twitter to turn over the identities behind numerous accounts he said harassed and defamed him.
The Constitution protects free speech in the town square. Although Twitters CEO has testified that Twitter is like a modern-day town square, he said that it is a privately owned company that can censor speech.
There needs to be a legal and constitutional discussion on whether these big tech companies that offer a platform similar to what the “town Square’ used to be, are stifling the 1st Amendment rights of the citizens of the U.S. It is the new public forum that is free for all Americans to gather.
President Trump on Friday used the first veto of his administration to reject a bipartisan resolution that sought to block his declaration of a national emergency at the border, a move almost certain to kill the measure.
Today President Trump issued his first veto to reject a bipartisan resolution to stop his national emergency. Trump made some very strong remarks on why he vetoed the resolution.
On Friday, Trump called the resolution “dangerous” and said it would have revoked border operations put into place by the declaration. He also thanked Republicans who voted against the resolution.
“I have to in particular thank Republicans, strong Republican senators that were on our side and on the side of border security,” he said. He later added that the vote for the resolution was “a vote against reality.”
This week the border patrol in Texas apprehended 300 illegals crossing the border. This is in addition to 1,000 they apprehended just 24 hours earlier. Arizona is reporting a 230% increase in illegals. So when President Trump says we have a problem, Congress needs to take heed.
“We are currently facing a humanitarian and national security crisis along our southwest border,” CBP Commissioner Kevin K. McAleenan said in a statement earlier this month.
But the other side of the aisle is still insisting this is a manufactured emergency.
“It is no surprise that the president holds the rule of law and our Constitution in minimal regard. There is no emergency; Congress has refused to fund his wall multiple times; Mexico won’t pay for it; and a bipartisan majority in both chambers just voted to terminate his fake emergency,” Schumer said in a statement.
Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., had said he would oppose the declaration but reversed course on the Senate floor, saying that he was “sympathetic” to Trump’s push to deal with the crisis at the border.
Friday morning after at least one shooter attacked mosques in New Zealand AOC took to Twitter and tore into the NRA (National Rifle Association). Instead of offering condolences to those that lost loved ones, AOC found it more productive to start a gun-control argument.
At one of the mosques, the attack was actually stopped by another churchgoer who had a gun and returned fire.
But the killings were stopped at the second location, thanks in part to someone who shot back at the attacker.
A man told the New Zealand Herald he heard about five gunshots and that a Friday prayer-goer returned fire with a rifle or shotgun.
The Herald reports, it was a well known Muslim local who chased the shooters away and fired two shots at them as they drove off. The man told police officers he was firing in “self defence,” reports the Herald.
So there is also an argument that a gun stopped a terrorist attack at the second location.
Authorities in New Zealand have arrested one shooter and detained three other people.
