Today is September 16, and these are the stories I’m following.
1-New York Times updates Kavanaugh ‘bombshell’ to note accuser doesn’t recall alleged assault
The New York Times suddenly made a major revision to its story late Sunday concerning a resurfaced allegation of sexual assault by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, hours after virtually all 2020 Democratic presidential candidates had cited the original article as a reason to impeach Kavanaugh. The update included the significant detail that several friends of the alleged victim said she did not recall the supposed sexual assault in question at all. The Times also stated for the first time that the alleged victim refused to be interviewed, and has made no comment about the episode.
2-More than 49,000 auto workers go on strike against GM
The United Auto Workers went on a nationwide strike against General Motors on Sunday night after contract talks broke off Sunday. It is the first strike against GM in 12 years.
DML: Short the stock.
3-Trump: US ‘locked and loaded’ against attackers of Saudi oil facility ‘depending on verification’; Iran denies involvement
President Trump on Sunday suggested U.S. investigators had “reason to believe” they knew who launched crippling attacks against a key Saudi oil facility, and vowed that America was “locked and loaded depending on verification.” While he did not specify in his tweet who he believed was responsible for Saturday’s drone attacks, U.S. investigators previously have pointed the finger at Iran. For its part, Iran has denied the allegations. Earlier Sunday, Trump authorized the use of emergency oil reserves in Texas and other states after Saudi oil processing facilities were attacked, sparking fears of a spike in oil prices when markets reopen Monday.
DML: The Middle East needs a hurricane of mass proportions.
Lori Loughlin may have second thoughts about pleading not guilty in the college admissions scandal following Felicity Huffman’s 14-day sentence. A source close to Loughlin told People that the former “Fuller House” star was “aware of Felicity’s sentence and is processing what that means for her.” Huffman, 56, was sentenced to 14 days behind bars after she pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in May.
DML: If you or I did this crime, we’d get the full sentence because we’re not “celebrities.”
5- Conway gives advise to Dems
Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, said Sunday that Democrats need to “get to a messaging meeting” and “stop the nonsense of harassing and embarrassing this president and the people around him when you’ve had no constitution or legal basis to do so.”
DML: The Dems do have a message, it’s called “HATE TRUMP” and that’s what they’re running on in 2020. Sounds like a painful time to be a Democrat. May I suggest they go to DMLcbd.com and get some DML PURE CBD. It can’t help with messaging, but it sure does kill the pain. DMLcbd.com
