Today is Nov. 25 and these are the stories I am following.
1-Navy secretary fired over handling, ‘lack of candor’ in Eddie Gallagher case; SEAL will keep Trident pin, Pentagon says
Defense Secretary Mark Esper fired Navy Secretary Richard Spencer on Sunday over his handling of the case of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, who posed for a photo next to an Islamic State group terrorist’s corpse in Iraq. Spencer was fired for “lack of candor” — for dishonesty and undermining the military justice system.
2-Bloomberg officially enters 2020 presidential race – and his media company faces immediate ethics problems
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg officially launched his 2020 presidential campaign Sunday with the release of a one-minute video. However, his entry into the race has posed a dilemma for the news service that bears his name and editors at Bloomberg have already raised eyebrows with how they say they will approach their coverage.
Bloomberg Editor-in-Chief John Micklethwait announced Sunday it will not “investigate” the candidate or any of his Democratic rivals, and Bloomberg Opinion will no longer run unsigned editorials. The entry of Bloomberg into the presidential race also raises potential conflict-of-interest questions involving his extensive business holdings, which go well beyond his news service.
DML: Let me say this now, what you just read above is total BS about Bloomberg (news) being fair. I guess I’ve have the same problem in 2024 and my news team will have to be “fair.” Nonsense. They other side if never fair.
3-Nunes doubles down on promise to sue CNN and Daily Beast
Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who promised to sue CNN and the Daily Beast, is claiming that the only way to hold the “corrupt” media accountable is to challenge them in federal court. Both outlets had published stories claiming the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee had met with Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin in Vienna in 2018 to push for an investigation into Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. Both stories cite former Rudy Guliani associate Lev Parnas, who was indicted in October for conspiring to violate the ban on foreign donations, prompting Nunes to question the validity of the source.
DML: I would love to see this almost as much as President Trump would love to see this!
4- Minimum wage shocker for Republicans
Eighteen states rang in 2019 with minimum wage increases — some that will ultimately rise as high as $15 an hour. So far, opponents’ dire predictions of job losses haven’t come true, according to a new report. The data suggests that higher minimum wage requirements haven’t reduced hiring in low-wage industries or overall, thus, silencing opponents who have long argued that raising the minimum wage will cause workers to lose their jobs and prompt fast food chains (and other stores) to raise prices. But job losses and price hikes haven’t been pronounced in the aftermath of a recent wave of city and state wage-boost laws.
DML: This is one place I have always differed from conservatives, I agree with upping the minimum wage, albeit not to $15. I like $12.50 per hour.
5- Rebecca is thankful this year for DML PURE CBD.
Rebecca loves to bake and cook all sorts of things for her family. But over time her back was no longer able to take the bending down and lifting some things like a pan sheet filled with cookies. She was greatly depressed. Then she heard me speak about DML PURE CBD and decided to get a DML PURE STARTER PACK when nothing else seemed to work. In her note to me, Rebecca claims she is making Thanksgiving this year for the first time in 9 years because DML PURE CBD has led her to say, “I FEEL GREAT AGAIN.” Please, be smart like Rebecca, go to DMLcbd.com and get your DML PURE TODAY!
