The President’s Enemies Aren’t the Only Ones Vying for a Pound of Flesh

He never catches a single break.

Published

Sometimes, even on a Sunday, it can feel as though the whole world is your enemy…particularly if you’re the current President of these United States.

To be fair, Donald Trump has had the wind in the his face, so to speak, from the moment that he announced his run for office.  The liberal left was outraged, incensed even, when the republican simply annihilated Hillary Clinton in the electoral college, and turned to radicalization as a remedy for the threat they believed that he posed.  Now, every single move made by this man is subject to ridiculous scrutiny and opposition, simply because he isn’t Hillary.

And, to make matters worse, his enemies weren’t the only ones vying for a piece of flesh either, according to new revelations regarding long-time Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

Attorney Michael Cohen recorded a conversation with President Trump before the election in which they discussed possible payments to a former Playboy model who claimed she slept with Trump, a source familiar with the investigation confirmed to Fox News.

The source told Fox News that no payment was ever made.

The New York Times first reported that the FBI seized the recording during a raid earlier this year on Cohen’s office as part of an investigation into the former Trump lawyer’s payments to women to shut down stories about his client leading up to the 2016 election — a practice known as “catch-and-kill.”

The conversation is said to involve a possible payment to Karen McDougal, who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006, and took place two months before the election.

The Wall Street Journal reported in November 2016 that McDougal was paid $150,000 by American Media Inc. — the parent company to the National Enquirer — for the rights to the story, but it never ran. McDougal has sued AMI, alleging Cohen was secretly involved in those discussions. The lawsuit was settled in April.

This is pure filth on the part of Cohen, who has been under the thumb of Special Counsel Robert Mueller in recent weeks, as the former FBI Chief continues to search for anything resembling “collusion” between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

So far, there has been nothing by way of evidence for “collusion”, and two already-wrapped congressional investigations seem to indicate that this is precisely the way this whole shebang will wrap up.  For now, Mueller is simply frying small fish to keep his paychecks rolling in.

DeSantis Says Anti-Vax Cops Eligible for $5K Signing Bonus in Florida

Florida = Freedom.

Published

on

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is taking a stand against the proliferation of COVID-19 vaccine mandates, and staking his political career on being right about it.

DeSantis has long railed against the idea that Floridians should be forced into medical decisions that they aren’t comfortable with, or be told what level of risk they are allowed to take in regard to the waning pandemic.  This has, of course, put him at odds with a vast number of Democrats as well as some of the major corporations that do business in the Sunshine State.

But DeSantis will not be deterred, and he has now offered a lifeline to essential personnel from other locales who are being effected by what he sees as an unconstitutional set of mandates.

During an appearance on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo, DeSantis said he is now “actively working” to recruit out-of-state police officers who have been fired or placed on unpaid leave due to their city’s vaccine mandate.

“We’re actually actively working to recruit out-of-state law enforcement, because we do have needs in our police and our sheriff’s departments. So, in the next legislative session, I’m going to hopefully sign legislation that gives a $5,000 bonus to any out-of-state law enforcement that relocates in Florida,” DeSantis said.

“So, NYPD, Minneapolis, Seattle, if you’re not being treated well, we will treat you better here. You can fill important needs for us, and we will compensate you as a result,” he added.

DeSantis would go on to suggest that the vaccine mandates implored by the Biden administration are not only outside of the scope of the federal government’s power, but also incredibly detrimental to our chances at a full economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.
