Yesterday, I made mention of the brouhaha being made by the left regarding the meeting that took place in June of 2016 between Trump, Jr and a Russian government lawyer.
Trump Jr, then did something extraordinary: He released the entire email chain that set up the meeting, unredacted.
Dear Mr. Trump,
The last time you faced Megyn Kelly, you were a little perturbed at her questioning of you under the category of electability. In responding to her question about your choice of words when you feud with others, especially women, you took umbrage and directed a few shots back.
While you have gained some sympathy for being targeted unfairly, you seem to have not only decided you don’t want to face her again, but you want to leverage your good polling numbers as a mob call to not have to endure her determined questioning.
Here’s your problem: Poll numbers are not solid for any candidate at any time. One wrong move, and you’re going to see people leave in droves. In fact, this may actually be the one time you discover, most likely the hard way, that being a narcissist and a prima donna may see the beginning of your decline.
No one questions your business savvy. We all know your ability to entertain. But you’re not invincible nor invulnerable. It’s pretty clear who put the crack in your armour. The question is, will you take the time to repair it, make good with the voters and those on the fence, and demonstrate diplomacy in seeking a resolution – or will you try to ignore it and hope it doesn’t turn into a mortal wound that will leave a trail of blood seeing your political corpse danced upon from historians years down the road?
I don’t have any problem with you being the President. However, you will find that people in this country will only tolerate your belligerent and disrespectful behavior towards a person of Megyn Kelly’s character for so long. If the momentum shifts in her favor, you will have lost a potential ally in your bid to become President. She can’t make anyone become the Chief Executive, but you might end up with a mortally wounded campaign.
Be the big man you espouse to be to your followers. Do the debate. Stop this silliness.
In an article regarding Sgt. Bergdahl’s desertion charge, the NY Times ponders..
Another question is whether the Army will give Sergeant Bergdahl an honorable discharge if he is found guilty of desertion. For members of the military, an honorable discharge is no small matter, and not getting one can hinder not only a veteran’s job prospects, but the entirety of how a service member look back on his or her career.
If you are convicted in any courts martial, you’re going to get a dishonorable discharge. This may be upsetting to liberals, but it is a felony conviction, and he’ll have the same problems as any other felon.
As for the NY Times and their crack team of reporters, see the graphic in the upper right.
I saved a screenshot, just in case…
James O’Keefe strikes again, this time asking Assistant Dean of Students at Cornell University, Joseph Scaffido, about the possibility of student organizing a new group sympathetic to ISIS and other radical islamic groups.
As stated in this NY Post article, the guy is either completely ignorant of the world, or he is politically correct to such an extreme and takes care not to offend anyone.
Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz says we need to talk. From Fortune Magazine:
In a video addressing Starbucks’ nearly 200,000 workers, 40% of whom are members of a racial minority, Schultz dismissed the notion that race was too hot a topic business-wise for Starbucks to tackle.
“I reject that. I reject that completely,” he said in the video address. “It’s an emotional issue. But it is so vitally important to the country,” he continued, pointing to that the United States is “so much better” than what the current state of race relations portray it to be.
From the Washington Post
The reason, they say, is that political conservatives have a tendency to self-aggrandize. When they compared happiness self-reports with tests that measured a tendency to enhance one’s better qualities, they found that the happiness gap could be explained by a self-enhancement gap. In other words, liberals were being more honest about their personal pitfalls.
Essentially, a previous study that had conservatives self-report their happiness suggests that Conservatives were exaggerating and that perhaps, Liberals, were just not being modest.
In the new study, they analyzed photos and posts from both Linked and Twitter. Apparently, Conservatives tweet more angry and post not as happy pictures as Liberals.. or something. All because of what you post tells you how much happier or sadder you are.
Hope you all are having a nice day like I am! 🙂

A lot has happened since the last update and I hope to be a little more involved, depending on how real life goes on.
