Today is 9/18 and these are the stories I am following.
1-Democrats, Lewandowski clash
The House Judiciary Committee’s first hearing as part of its Trump impeachment investigation descended into chaos Tuesday as Democrats clashed with a combative Corey Lewandowski as he refused to answer many of their questions. After five hours of testimony before lawmakers, Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. and chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, told Lewandowski his “behavior in this hearing room has been completely unacceptable,” and said holding him “in contempt” is “certainly under consideration.”
DML: The radical left holds these circus hearings for one reason only… to protect themselves in the next election by trying to prove they “did something” to take out Trump.
2-Netanyahu’s future in doubt
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s political future was in doubt Wednesday, as Israel’s two main political parties were deadlocked after an unprecedented repeat election. The election’s seeming political kingmaker, Avigdor Lieberman, said he’ll insist upon a secular unity government between Netanyahu’s Likud and Benny Gantz’s Blue and White parties, who, based on partial results, are currently tied at 32 seats each out of the 120 in parliament.
DML: Netanyahu is the longest-serving leader in Israeli history, and he has done a remarkable job. The Israelis are making a mistake.
3-Democratic mega-donor arrested
Ed Buck, the California Democratic mega-donor, was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house after a third man reportedly suffered an overdose inside his West Hollywood home last week and survived. Buck was charged with three counts of battery and is accused of injecting the alleged third victim with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.
DML: I say put him in the cell with Epstein’s old cell mate.
4-Trump goes on $15M fundraising blitz in California
President Trump sent liberal California activists into a tizzy on Tuesday, as he executed a lunch-dinner-breakfast-lunch fundraising blitz expected to scoop up $15 million from wealthy Republicans in the state in the span of just two days.
DML: The Republican National Committee (RNC) is expected to announce this week that it raised a record-setting $23.5 million in August and had $53.8 million cash on hand as of the end of that month. Shows that interest level is high, but also reflects a concerned party.
5-Number of abortions in US falls to lowest level since 1973
The number and rate of abortions across the United States have dropped to their lowest levels since the procedure became legal nationwide in 1973, according to figures released Wednesday. The report from the Guttmacher Institute, a research group that supports abortion rights, counted 862,000 abortions in the U.S. in 2017. That’s down from 926,000 tallied in the group’s previous report for 2014, and from just over 1 million counted for 2011. The new report illustrates that abortions are decreasing in all parts of the country, whether in Republican-controlled states seeking to restrict abortion access or in Democratic-run states protecting abortion rights. Between 2011 and 2017, abortion rates increased in only five states and the District of Columbia. – The Associated Press
