Today is Friday, June 7. Here are the stories I am watching.
1-Trump launches attack on ‘nasty, vindictive, horrible’ Pelosi
President Trump has taken the gloves off in his ongoing feud with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In a Fox News interview that aired Thursday, Trump slammed Pelosi in response to a report by Politico where the House speaker apparently told top Democrats she would like to see him in “prison.” Trump said, “I think she’s a disgrace. I actually don’t think she’s a talented person, I’ve tried to be nice to her because I would have liked to have gotten some deals done.” He continued, “She’s incapable of doing deals. She’s a nasty, vindictive, horrible person. The Mueller report came out, it was a disaster for them.”
DML: I think Trump’s getting softer in his older age, I mean, he could have remarked on Nancy’s face like he did Carly Fiorina’s mug during the debates.
2-Blocking robocalls to get easier under new policy. Phone companies have more freedom to block robocalls after U.S. regulators moved to protect them from the legal consequences of doing so. But the action from the FCC likely won’t completely stop the flood of calls to consumers’ phones.
DML: I would pay a fee each month to stop the idiots from calling me.
3-U.S. cities keep getting hacked. Local governments across the country are facing a growing threat of cyberattacks and escalating ransom demands, as an attack in Baltimore has crippled thousands of computers for a month. Municipalities are less prepared than companies due to limited resources and difficulty competing for cybersecurity talent, security professionals say.
DML: We give away hundreds of billions of dollars each year to help foreign countries who vote against us in the UN, but we can’t protect ourselves. This is why you have to vote DML2024. I will solve this crap.
4-Reports: Mexico proposes deal to avoid escalating tariffs
Faced with President Trump’s promise to impose escalating tariffs, Mexico is reportedly proposing deal where it would stem the number of migrants heading north by deploying as many as 6,000 National Guard troops to the country’s border region with Guatemala. In addition, according to reports, the potential deal would give the United States far more latitude in deporting Central Americans seeking asylum. Trump has pledged to hit Mexico with rising tariffs starting Monday if the nation does not take more measures to stem the rush of migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump’s tariff threat looms amid a new report that ISIS had plotted to take advantage of vulnerable spots at the U.S.-Mexico border and infiltrate the United States and target financial institutions.
DML: Trump has to see this through, so I urge you to go to DennisMichaelLynch.com/Letter and send your support to the president about launching tariffs.
5-Times Square grenade-attack plot thwarted
A suspect described as “a lone wolf” was arrested Thursday in connection with a plan to throw explosives at people in New York City’s famed Times Square, according to reports. The unidentified suspect was taken into custody soon after investigators from the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force learned that he was inquiring about buying grenades, the New York Daily News reported. No information was released about the suspect’s age, nationality or place of residence but he was scheduled to appear in court in Brooklyn on Friday, WCBS-TV in New York City reported.
DML: I say “Jail for life!” But the liberal judge will probably send him to cooking school instead.
6-Homelessness grows in California despite spending. The state’s homeless population is increasing despite billions of dollars in taxpayer-funded efforts, according to recently released data and officials. Homelessness jumped 12% and 16% from a year ago in the county and city of Los Angeles, respectively.
DML: I am begging you. Knock out two birds with one stone. Go to DennisMichaelLynch.com/Letter and select Letter #3. That not only sends the support to Trump, but it also includes getting a copy of my new film UNITED STATED of TENTS. Plus, when you chose Letter #3, I send a copy to the Koch Brothers and the US Chamber of Commerce demanding they put their lobbying money towards helping Americans who are homeless, instead of illegal aliens who provide cheap labor.
