My latest update from the campaign trail.
DEM vs GOP: Pelosi signs loser articles of impeachment. Trump signs excellent new trade deal with China.
JOBS: Republicans do it better – The average unemployment rate nearly three years into President Trump’s administration is 3.9 percent — a 50-year low.
The next best employment statistic was recorded during President George W. Bush’s first term at 5.5 percent.
BLACK VOTE: “For years, it has been a rule of thumb in politics that if black support for Republicans ever reached 20% of the total vote, a Democratic presidential candidate would not be able to win, ever.” – Daniel Henninger
In 2016, Mr. Trump got 8% of the black vote. Three recent polls – Emerson, Marist and Rasmussen – show Trump support among black voters at 30%.
BERNIE: [5:02] – CNN’s attack on Bernie Sanders resulted in a huge boost for Sanders’ campaign donations.
KILLING SOLEIMANI: [3:34] – Rep. Brian Mast [R-FL-14] asked for the name of any fallen service member whose death did not justify the killing of Qasem Soleimani. When the predictable silence carried on, the Democrat chairman tried to end his time. But it was his time. If he wanted to use it for silence, that was his choice.
In 2010, while serving with the 28th Ordnance Company in Afghanistan, Mast lost both his legs and one of his fingers to an IED.
MEATHEAD MIKE: “Bloomberg is ready to blow $1 billion on a nationwide campaign in places he’s never been to and making a play for the hearts and minds of voters that he’s unable to understand or relate to. While his campaign spends a fortune on ads and staff, its message is the same one that he ran on in New York City.” – Daniel Greenfield
- In farm country, the billionaire politician preached, “Too much wealth is in too few hands, and it’s concentrated in too few places.”
- In Alabama, he said, “You just do not want the average citizen carrying a gun in a crowded place.”
- And in Texas, he vowed to bring in more immigrants and refugees.
A man is walking down a deserted street with his wife and two small children. He is legally carrying a concealed weapon. Suddenly, a thug comes at him with a huge knife. What does the man do?
