Hello. Below are the stories I’m watching today, April 23. Tuesday.
From the RIGHT…
Fox News reports: DEMS BLINK ON PURSUING TRUMP IMPEACHMENT — FOR NOW: Leaders of the House Democrats backed off the idea of immediately launching impeachment proceedings against President Trump in an urgent conference call Monday evening amid a growing rift among the party’s rank-and-file members, presidential contenders and committee chairs … Fox News is told by two senior sources on the private conference call that even House Financial Services Committee Chair Maxine “Impeach 45” Waters, an anti-Trump firebrand, told fellow Democrats that while she personally favored going forward with impeachment proceedings, she was not pushing for other members to join her. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and her leadership team were clear there were no immediate plans to move forward with impeachment, Fox News is also told. Pelosi told fellow Democrats she favors more investigations of Trump to “save our democracy.”
MY TAKE: Make no mistake, the Left will find ways to cheat, scream and punch one way or another.
FROM THE LEFT:
Axios reports: When Joe Biden announces for president later this week, he’ll open his campaign with a “climate of the nation” message that takes on President Trump but doesn’t directly attack any of the other 2020 Democrats.
Biden will spell out the stakes for the country, and talk about what kind of people we’re going to be. He’ll emphasize the kind of politics he’s running against, and what kind of leadership the moment calls for. Some key Democrats are bearish on the 76-year-old’s chances, with one of them calling it “a third Obama term, a second Hillary term — take your pick.”
But Biden will project a “determined” air, advisers say.
Friends say Biden has been personally making fundraising calls, a sign of his new focus on a race where he let much of the field form ahead of him. Biden expects the rest of the field to cut him up, including attacks on his family.
But Biden is saying behind the scenes that he’s been hurt enough in his life, and this field can’t hurt him.
MY TAKE: Biden / Beto ticket scares me.
FROM THE MIDDLE:
Wall Street Journal reports: Sri Lanka bombings linked to New Zealand mosque shootings. New information indicates the plotters of the Easter Sunday bombings were reacting to last month’s shootings at a New Zealand mosque, Sri Lanka’s defense minister said. The U.S. and India issued warnings about a possible attack weeks ago, local officials said.
MY TAKE: the silence is disgusting. The media went nuts when a white crazy killed 50 Muslims, but when Muslim terrorists kill 300 Christians it is no big deal.
