Daily Update

The Hill follows up on its stunning news breaking article of yesterday with more information regarding the American businessman who worked for years undercover as an FBI confidential witness.   Read the follow up here.   The only way we will learn more is if he is released from his nondisclosure agreement (NDA) that prevents him from revealing what he knows to Congress.  The NY Post editorial had this to say about team Obama’s stunning cover-up of Russia’s crimes. 

Yesterday’s news was full of another whistleblower, Joe Rannazzisi’s, account of how he believes Congress was complicit in creating the opioid crisis.  Read what Congressman Tom Marino has to say about the 60 Minutes/Washington Post report here

The Trump haters were out in force yesterday.  Rep. Frederica Wilson, a Democrat, would have us believe that President Trump is the coldest, heartless, most contemptable Commander-in-Chief this country has ever elected.  I do not believe for one moment President Trump is capable of being the man Congresswoman Wilson described; President Trump was so touched by Charlie Gard he offered to bring him here to try and save him, this is not a man who would be so insensitive as to a say what Congresswoman Wilson accused him of saying.  Melania Trump sent this note to a Gold Star Mother on Gold Star Mother’s and Families Day, and I am sure Donald Trump did something similar.   Are they – the Trump haters – trying to set him up for removal under the 25th Amendment?

More bad news for New York from the Tax Foundation, after 7 years of Governor Cuomo, we rank 49th.  Governor Cuomo touted the Tax Foundation when running for Governor, now he knocks the organization.  Is this why New York is ranked 49th Governor CuomoPerhaps this is the reason also.  Let’s see $125 million from taxpayers for 383 jobs = $326,371 per job.   

E. J. McMahon gives us some more information about the tax plan put forward by President Trump after yesterday’s visit to Buffalo by VP Pence.  Details are still not set in stone.
