Today is October 7 and I am Dennis Michael Lynch. Below are my opinions on the stories grabbing headlines this morning. I hope you share this briefing as doing so will make you the smartest person in the room, in my opinion. And don’t forget to download the free DML App from the Google Play or Apple App Store to remain connected to me throughout the day.
1-Trump Authorizes ‘Total Declassification’ of ‘Any’ and ‘All Documents’ Pertaining to Russia Hoax, and Clinton Email
President Trump’s decision Tuesday to authorize the declassification of all documents related to the high-profile Russia investigation and the FBI probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state was embraced by supporters and brushed off by detractors.
Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday to announce that he wanted all relevant files pertaining to “the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax” released. He said he also wants all relevant documents pertaining to the Clinton email probe.
Trump’s demand came a day after he was released by Walter Reed Medical Center after a brief stay after coming down with COVID-19. The presidential election is headed into the final stretch and Trump seems to have some ground to make up, according to recent polls.
All Russia Hoax Scandal information was Declassified by me long ago. Unfortunately for our Country, people have acted very slowly, especially since it is perhaps the biggest political crime in the history of our Country. Act!!!

Nothing to see here. Just silly rumors the *President* was briefed on. https://t.co/tP94QkMcMn

If you’re more worried about @realDonaldTrump unmasking on a balcony with no one close to him than you were by the Obama/Biden administration unmasking (aka illegally spying on) their political opponents, my diagnosis is you have TDS, & my prescription is to put down your phone.

DML: The guy inside of me who hates Hillary and Obama love this move. But if this is the OCTOBER surprise, I hate to say it but Trump needs more to overcome the shortfall in the polls (assuming they are correct). Although it would be great to see everything unfold and point the Russia hoax directly at Hillary, right now most people are focused / concerned on their finances, health, and safety. Addressing the shutdowns of businesses and schools, the mandates forcing face masks, and the defunding of police is where this election is won or lost.
2-Grand Jury Indicts St. Louis Couple Who Used Guns to Hold Off Protesters
A grand jury indicted Mark and Patricia McCloskey Tuesday on charges related to their June 28, 2020, use of guns to keep protesters away from their home.
KSDK reports that the grand jury indicted the McCloskeys on “exhibiting a weapon and tampering with evidence.”
Mark held an AR-15 and Patricia held a handgun on June 28, in hopes of deterring protesters from damaging their home or property.
Video of the couple standing outside their home went viral:

DML: This is simply unthinkable. The 2nd Amendment is non-negotiable. If thugs threaten your safety and property, unveiling a gun is your right. So too is using of that gun if required to keep safe the things you love and own. This couple didn’t fire a round. No person was shot. There is no crime here. But the problem is this couple is a successful duo with skin color that is classified as white. Therefore, they are guilty in the court of liberal opinions.
3-Trump Weighs More Crackdowns on Welfare-Dependent Immigration
Last year, the Trump administration published a new regulation that made it more difficult for welfare-dependent legal immigrants seeking green cards to permanently resettle in the U.S. The regulation, previous estimates have stated, equates to a nearly $60 billion tax cut for American taxpayers.
A new regulation being weighed by the administration would make sure that American citizen sponsors of foreign nationals for green cards have the means to cover all the associated costs.
“Specifically, this proposed rule would require sponsors and household members who execute an Affidavit or Contract to provide Federal income tax returns for three years, credit reports, credit scores, and bank account information,” the proposed regulation states.
The regulation is designed to have citizens prove they can maintain the required income that it takes to sponsor a foreign national for a green card, whether that be a relative or a possible employee.
Also, the regulation would effectively prevent citizens who are dependent on welfare from sponsoring foreign nationals for green cards unless they have an additional sponsor who has not taken welfare.
DML: Wonderful! The sound of this move by Trump gets me more revved up than a Eddie Van Halen guitar solo. May Eddie rest in peace.
4- Pence v Harris showdown is tonight
Wednesday’s faceoff between Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris and Vice President Mike Pence in Salt Lake City, Utah, is taking on heightened importance.
With 74-year old President Trump and 77-year old Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden being the oldest standard bearers ever to lead the Democratic and Republican national party tickets, the vice presidential debate was already consequential – with both running mates seen as presidents in waiting.
DML: Pence should rip into Harris whenever possible. He should start the debate by referring to Harris as a poser who tries to sell herself as the next best thing to Michelle Obama (aka an angry black woman with a radical left attitude).
5-Experimental Chinese coronavirus vaccine reportedly safe in early stage trials: researchers
A Chinese experimental coronavirus vaccine being developed by the Institute of Medical Biology under the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences was shown to be safe in an early stage clinical trial, researchers said.
In a Phase 1 trial of 191 healthy participants aged between 18 and 59, vaccination with the group’s experimental shot showed no severe adverse reactions, its researchers said on Tuesday in a paper here posted on medRxiv preprint server ahead of peer review.
The most common adverse reactions reported by the trial participants were mild pain, slight fatigue and redness, itching and swelling at the injection site.
DML: No thanks. I would rather swallow gasoline.
DML PARTING WORDS: Is there any doubt in your mind that liberals are trying to steel your freedoms? They want to take your guns, your freedom of speech, etc., etc. They want to control you with crazy rules like mask mandates. If Trump loses this election the results will be horrifying; your freedoms will be at greater risk than they are today. No words can describe how bad it will be. So, do whatever you can do to encourage people to vote Trump. As for the masks, my take is this: When people start removing the masks in big numbers the mandates will end. Wearing a mask and thinking all is good, in my opinion, is more stupid than playing kickball in the middle of I-95. I say kill the masks and lets focus on the immune system. I trust the doctors who say mask wearing is dangerous. And while we are on the topic of immune systems, don’t be so busy watching and reading the news that you ignore what’s most important. You must keep yourself strong by keeping that immune system ready for any and all challenges. You can be like me and give DML CBD a try. I haven’t been sick in two years. I can’t attribute that success to wearing. mask; I don’t wear masks. The DML CBD product is amazing, but if you prefer pain, lack of sleep, off the rails anxiety, and an immune system that’s not up to snuff, then ignore this link and the testimonials that follow: DMLcbd.com
