The day is Dec 6, and here are the stories I am following.
1-Trump calls out to Dems on impeachment
After months of fighting the House impeachment inquiry, blocking witnesses and ignoring subpoenas, the White House is now publicly embracing a strategy it has privately signaled for weeks: It will accept the reality that President Donald Trump will likely be impeached by the House and focus instead on a made-for-TV trial on friendlier turf in the Republican-controlled Senate. Trump tweeted Thursday, ”Democrats have gone crazy. Therefore I say, if you are going to impeach me, do it now, fast, so we can have a fair trial in the Senate, and so that our Country can get back to business.” Warning that U.S. democracy is at stake, House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi directed a congressional committee on Thursday to draft articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, a historic step setting up a fight over whether to oust him from office.
DML: Great move by Mr. President.
2-Hundreds of Pakastani girls sold to China
A total of 629 girls and women from across Pakistan who were sold as brides to Chinese men and taken to China. The list, obtained by The Associated Press, was compiled by Pakistani investigators determined to break up trafficking networks exploiting the country’s poor and vulnerable. The list gives the most concrete figure yet for the number of women caught up in the trafficking schemes since 2018.
DML: China is the really the bottom of the barrel. Only Iran, Russia, Somalia, Turkey, and North Korea make it look good, and even that’s a stretch.
3- AOC makes another wild claim, gets slammed on social media
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., received pushback Thursday after claiming her family “might’ve just starved” had the Trump administration’s tightened requirements for food stamp recipients been in place when her father died in 2008. Critics claimed the freshman congresswoman misrepresented the new rules, pointing out that they apply only to childless, able-bodied adults under 50.
DML: She is starving for headlines is all.
4- Bloomberg promises to stop gun violence
Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg said on Thursday he wants to become president to end “the nationwide madness” of U.S. gun violence, calling it evil and saying he would allow its victims to file lawsuits against gun manufacturers.
DML: Typical Democrat, blame someone else (in this case gun makers) for the poor behavior of someone else.
5- Warren support drops big time
Support for U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren dropped nationally to its lowest level in four months, and nearly one in three potential Democratic primary voters say they do not know which candidate to pick with the first nominating contests less than two months away, according to a Reuters/Ipsos public opinion poll.
DML: It comes down to this… Warren can’t promise free stuff and think people will buy in. Free stuff is a scam because it is impossible to give. FREE means somebody else has to pay for it all. For example, I would love to give you FREE bottles of DML PURE and Miracle Me, but if I did that sort of thing it would only put me out of business and you’d be back to feeling crappy again. That said, it would be completely foolish of you not to jump on the DML PURE CBD bandwagon. Joanna, a TeamDML member for more than a year, writes this to me: “My back has been killing me for years and ever since taking your DML PURE CBD (I started with the starter pack in September) my back feels so much better and I am doing so much more than I have in years. I just ordered the Miracle Me for extra protection against pain when it pops up… I can’t wait to get it delivered.” DON’T YOU WAIT… give yourself the life you deserve. Go to DMLcbd.com and get yourself to feel great again. I suggest a starter pack and Miracle Me.
