Donald Trump

President Trump has been under fire from all corners of the media as of late, with a whirlwind week finally coming to a close.

Over the course of the last few days, President Trump has been goaded into anger on several occasions by the resistance-fueled mainstream media, most notably after an ugly exchange in the East Room of the White House with CNN’s Jim Acosta.

Acosta’s actions during the waning moments of this confrontation have since inspired the revocation of his White House press credentials.

Now, in the moments after Donald Trump boarded a flight for France, the Wall Street Journal is attacking him once again, this time for his assumed role in payments made to Stormy Daniels an another alleged mistress.

As a presidential candidate in August 2015, Donald Trump huddled with a longtime friend, media executive David Pecker, in his cluttered 26th floor Trump Tower office and made a request.

What can you do to help my campaign? he asked, according to people familiar with the meeting.

Less than a year later, Mr. Trump asked Mr. Pecker to quash the story of a former Playboy model who said they’d had an affair. Mr. Pecker’s company soon paid $150,000 to the model, Karen McDougal, to keep her from speaking publicly about it. Mr. Trump later thanked Mr. Pecker for the assistance.

The Trump Tower meeting and its aftermath are among several previously unreported instances in which Mr. Trump intervened directly to suppress stories about his alleged sexual encounters with women, according to interviews with three dozen people who have direct knowledge of the events or who have been briefed on them, as well as court papers, corporate records and other documents.

But did he break the law?

Mr. Trump’s involvement in the payments, by itself, wouldn’t mean he is guilty of federal crimes, according to Richard Hasen, a law professor at University of California, Irvine, who specializes in election law. A criminal conviction would require proof Mr. Trump willfully skirted legal prohibitions on contributions from companies or from individuals in excess of $2,700, he said.

In a week in which the President has been quick to respond to nearly anyone even whispering his name, there is no doubt a retort being formulated for Twitter as we speak.

Supreme Court Says No To Fast-Tracking Obamacare Decision; Pushes It Back Until Election Is Over

Published

on

The Supreme Court has decided they will not take up a challenge to Obamacare, opting instead to wait until after the 2020 presidential election is over before making any kind of decision on the issue. Part of the reason for the delay is that it removes pressure from Republicans and the current administration to cook up a backup proposal for the law. Here’s more from the Washington Examiner: The timeline removes the immediate threat that the whole law will be struck down, including its popular rules prohibiting insurers from turning away the sick, allowing President Trump to focus his attacks on Democratic proposals such as “Medicare for all.” It will also make it more difficult for Democrats to run on protecting Obamacare, a political strategy that has proved advantageous to them in the Trump era. The case in question, Texas v. Azar, is the result of a lawsuit by Republican state officials who said that Obamacare must be struck down on the grounds that it lost a critical component when the 2017 GOP tax overhaul zeroed out its fine on the uninsured. Republicans, who had the support of the Trump administration, said the fine had been central to Obamacare and that the rest of its provisions would not work and should not stand without it. Judge Reed O’Connor, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, agreed with the GOP states, but the case was appealed to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. On Dec. 18, the appellate judges ruled 2-1 that the health insurance mandate was unconstitutional but that the rest of the law needed further analysis by the lower courts to see whether some parts could be separated out and others could not. Liberal states that are defending Obamacare had urged the Supreme Court to take up the…

Hollywood Actor Michael Douglas Announces Endorsement Of Michael Bloomberg

Published

on

Hollywood has become a central hub of left-wing Democratic Party activity, so it’s not exactly a shock when a major actor or celebrity comes out and endorses a Democratic candidate for president. In fact, it would be shocking to see the opposite occur, but honestly, given the obvious bias in the industry, there’s very little worry that would ever happen. Legendary actor Michael Douglas, most recently known for the role of Hank Pym in Marvel’s Ant-Man film series, has announced he’s backing former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for president. Douglas made the announcement in a video released on Tuesday. Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner: “I feel so blessed that in this particularly difficult time that we have one of the greatest candidates in the history of our elections,” Douglas told People magazine, adding that he “hasn’t been this excited” about a presidential candidate since John F. Kennedy. The actor said he saw the addition of Bloomberg, 77, to the 2020 Democratic presidential primary as a “rare opportunity to coalesce and bring us back together, get rid of all this horrid, negative scare tactics that are going on, and the fact that he’s succeeded to the degree that he has is phenomenal.” At the conclusion of his endorsement, Douglas, who starred in films such as The American President, Fatal Attraction, and Ant-Man, called Bloomberg “a president America needs.” Bloomberg hasn’t been shy about making it clear he supports the removal of Donald Trump as the president under the impeachment charges brought against him by the House of Representatives. He clarified that he believes impeachment is very divisive, but “there’s just so much evidence that [Trump] acted inappropriately.” Democrats keep talking about all of the evidence that supports impeachment, but the question remains. Where’s it at?
