Today is October 6, and these are the stories I am watching.
1-Pompeo makes statement on impeachment efforts
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the State Department intends to follow the law in the House impeachment investigation and vigorously defended President Donald Trump, dismissing questions about the president’s attempts to push Ukraine and China to investigate a Democratic political rival. The Trump administration and House Democrats often disagree about what the law requires, leaving open the question of how Pompeo may interpret Democrats’ demands for key information about Trump’s handling of Ukraine.
DML: The Democrats continue to burn our tax payer money over the never ending desire to destroy the presidency of Trump.
2-Hong Kong protests.
Shouting “Wearing a mask is not a crime,” tens of thousands of protesters braved the rain Sunday to march in central Hong Kong, as a court rejected a second attempt to block a ban on masks aimed at quashing violence at pro-democracy rallies. Police fired tear gas in several areas amid confrontations between officers and protesters that have become a regular occurrence during the 4-month-old protest movement.
DML: The ban took effect Saturday. Can you imagine what Antifa would do if the same ban applied here.
3- Trump makes major mistake
On Oct 4, Trump tweeted: “I have just officially nominated Poland for entry into the Visa Waiver Program. With this decades long-awaited announcement, we are in the final steps of the process which, when complete, would grant Polish nationals visa-free business and tourism travel to the U.S. & vice versa”
DML: There should be NO VISA WAIVER PROGRAMS. NONE. We are in Post 911, perhaps the president should wake up and watch They Come to America IV. I don’t know what is more sad, the fact that Trump did this asinine move or that pro-borders advocates and the American people have no idea what it means to provide visa waivers. As president in 2024, I end the entire program.
4-Pope cements his liberal legacy
Pope Francis has added 13 new cardinals to the top of the Catholic hierarchy, telling them they must show God’s compassion to those who suffer to be faithful to their ministry.Francis presided over the ceremony Saturday in St. Peter’s Basilica, elevating churchmen who share his pastoral concerns at a time when his pontificate is under fire from conservatives within the College of Cardinals itself.
DML: Among the 13 are 10 cardinals who are under age 80 and therefore eligible to vote in a conclave, increasing the likelihood that a future pope might end up looking an awful lot like the current one. These are churchmen who call for open borders, promote support of Muslims, and believe in things that AOC believes in, e.g. farting cows.
5-US and N.Korea hit brick wall
Working-level nuclear talks in Sweden between officials from Pyongyang and Washington have broken off, North Korea’s top negotiator said late on Saturday, dashing prospects for an end to months of stalemate. Working-level nuclear talks in Sweden between officials from Pyongyang and Washington have broken off, North Korea’s top negotiator said late on Saturday, dashing prospects for an end to months of stalemate. Kim Myong Gil, who spent much of the day in talks with an American delegation, cast the blame on what he portrayed as U.S. inflexibility, saying the other side’s negotiators would not “give up their old viewpoint and attitude.”
DML: There are two things you can bank on in this world. One is that trying to negotiate with N. Korea is a waste of time — they will never give up on having nukes, and the second certainty is that DML PURE CBD can make you feel great again. Therefore, stop trying negotiate with yourself about feeling great again. Just do it. DMLcbd.com
