Media reaction to Mueller report explodes

ㅤô¿ô …The Constitution says Barr and Trump decide who sees the report. But precedent has been set that says Mueller can release the report to ever he wants to see it. Alas the Dems would never blame Mueller for preventing them from seeing the report.

Pictured: Ocasio-Cortez y mucho bien Titteros.

ㅤ”The AFL-CIO Energy Committee has issued a letter to the Democrats pushing for a Green New Deal, rejecting the proposal as ‘not achievable or realistic,’ according to the Washington Examiner.
ㅤThe AFL-CIO’s letter was written on behalf of eight other unions, including North America’s Building Trades Unions and United Steelworkers, and sent to Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who introduced the Green New Deal resolution last month.
ㅤ’We welcome the call for labor rights and dialogue with labor, but the Green New Deal resolution is far too short on specific solutions the speak to the jobs our members and the critical sectors of the economy,’ the AFL-CIO said in the letter. ‘We will not accept proposals that could cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families. We will not stand by and allow threats to our members’ jobs and their families’ standard of living go unanswered.'”

Paul Ryan: Dem Could Beat Trump in 2020 If He Relies on Personality

ㅤô¿ô …Based on this stupid remark, Trump is sure to win. Harris is an angry black woman, Warren is a ditz, Bernie is deranged and Biden is a blubbering idiot.
ㅤRyan is wrong about needing to "talk up" the economy. The economy is one of the few issues that speaks for itself.

Trump declares national emergency on border, taking extra money for wall

ㅤ"President Trump declared a national emergency on the southern border Friday, saying he’ll defy Congress to divert about $6.5 billion in unspent federal funds to build more border walls that lawmakers have refused to authorize.
ㅤ’We’re going to confront the national security crisis at our southern border,’ the President said. ‘We’re talking about an invasion of our country.’
ㅤHe called the declaration ‘a great thing to do.’
ㅤIn a Rose Garden event, the President signed a spending bill to keep the government open, a measure that provides nearly $1.4 billion for border barriers.
ㅤBut after months of bitter debate with Democrats and a 35-day government shutdown over border security, Mr. Trump said the bill doesn’t go far enough to address the crisis of illegal immigration and drug smuggling on the border with Mexico. The deal includes a record $23 billion for border security measures.’"

Beto O’Rourke sees stock fall

ㅤô¿ô …Beto also sees that the current group of Washington insiders who have entered the race are all losers wasting their money. Beto is probably waiting for Biden’s decision before potentially wasting his own money.
