It was a busy weekend on the national political scene from Mike Pence to Harvey Weinstein to The Little Sisters of the Poor and everything in between.
MIKE PENCE: They’re calling it “a stunt” that Mike Pence walked out. They’re trying to say he went to the game after being in Vegas, but the trip had been long planned. Suddenly they all care about the costs of travel. Nobody seems to question the travel that went on during the Obama years on government funded planes.
BROCK LONG AND FEMA: FEMA Director Brock Long appeared on the Sunday shows this weekend. He was once again criticized over Puerto Rico. He quickly dismissed the nonsense from the mayor of San Juan who clearly has an Anti-Trump Agenda.
NORTH KOREA: President Trump set the media off Friday and throughout the weekend for his “calm before the storm” comment,” regarding his policy on North Korea.
HARVEY WEINSTEIN: The Left is finally acknowledging the scandal that surrounds Hollywood Mega-Producer Harvey Weinstein. However, they’ve also found a way to make it about Donald Trump.
BIRTH CONTROL REQUIREMENT: President Trump is ending the ACA requirement for private businesses to provide free healthcare.
IMMIGRATION: Trump releases his new 70 point immigration plan. The goal is to end chain migration, increase border security, and the amnesty for unaccompanied minors.
BOB CORKER: The very wealthy Bob Corker somehow made lots of money during the financial crisis that crippled the rest of the country. July 11, spent between $1-$5 on the McGowan Investment just before Wells Fargo turned into a major profit. Wells Fargo bailed Corker out.
President Donald Trump accepted the recommendation from Assistant Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to remove James Comey from his position as FBI Director. Many Democrats like Senator Chuck Schumer are asking “Why now?”
Democrats continue to reference Comey as the man leading the investigation concerning the Russians. Maybe they forgot that the FBI is an entire agency and can continue investigations without James Comey. A year after the fact, no one has any evidence of a direct connection between Donald Trump and the Russian government.
On July 5th, in a statement Comey said there was evidence of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton handling classified information but he could not prove her intent. Democrat Senators and the media say Comey’s firing resemble the famous “Saturday night massacre” by President Richard Nixon. This is where President Nixon fired Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox. In the show today BKP explained how there is nothing about Watergate that resembles Donald Trump firing James Comey.
We also look at the coincidence that President Bill Clinton fired FBI Director, William Sessions, on July 19th and Deputy White House Counsel Vince Foster’s body was found in Fort Marcy park on July 20th.
The bottom line is President Donald Trump fired Comey because he was no longer effective and able to run the agency. “The Director of the FBI must be someone who follows faithfully the rules and principles of the Department of Justice and who sets the right example for our law enforcement officials and others in the Department. Therefore I must recommend that you remove Director James B. Comey, Jr. and identify an experienced and qualified individual to lead the great men and women of the FBI.” – Attorney General Jeff Session
(R) Karen Handel seems to be doing exactly what is necessary to get out the Republican vote in the 6th district. (D) Jon Ossoff has to spend the next two months convincing the Democrats just to go back to the polls. On the other hand Handel has to get every registered Republican vote she can; regardless of who they voted for last week or in the Presidential primary election. Within the next two months it won’t be hard to bump into a well known Republican in the 6th district. Handel has received endorsements from almost every single Republican. From her one time rival Governor Nathan Deal to what some consider controversial President Donald Trump.
BKP questioned last week what Karen Handel would do concerning Donald Trump voters. Would she embrace President Trump during her campaign or listen to the media and turn down the possibility to campaign with The President?
During an interview on CNN, Handel shared her conversation with The President stating “He just called to say congrats and encourage me and let me know as we go into June 20, it’s all hands on deck for Republicans.” When asked if she thought Mr. Trump might come down and campaign with her, Handel responded, “I would hope so,” adding, “I don’t think this is about any one person.”
The 6th Congressional district race could set the tone for the 2018 midterms. For Republicans the 6th district will look like a real “who’s who.” But who will the Democrats send to help Jon Ossoff in this important race; Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, or maybe even Maxine Waters.
Who is Responsible for Obama Care Now – Republicans or Democrats? How will the failed Health Care Bill affect the elections in 2018? How will the failed Health Care Bill Act will affect the GA 6th Congressional District election? When Obama Care collapses who will the voters hold responsible #BKP thinks that the Republicans now own Obama care, lock stock, and barrel, and 2018 voters will hold Republicans responsible for the collapse. Republicans broke the biggest promise that they made to the American people. They can no longer go back to the well and say they are the party that can deliver.
