And while Generation Z is-in-ten eligible voters, the researchers found that – based on historical trends – older Americans are turning more to choose, which means that the older generations could end up accounting for a larger share of actual voters than their share of the electorate. AARP chief of the advocacy and engagement officer Nancy LeaMond told FOX Business it would be unwise for candidates to ignore, older Americans, and their biggest concerns.”

TIME-OUT: TODAY WE KNOW BEANS
Smithsonian: “Of all the great debates, some more polarizing than chocolate vs. vanilla. Those of us aligned with chocolate—the product of ground, roasted cocoa beans—do you find it warm, comforting, ambrosial, and, as a rule, you close all the things unchocolate as a ‘vanilla’ meaning bland and boring. Who fruit vanilla is a climbing Orchid that wears long until podlike, praise his sweet, aromatic, and note that it amplifies the taste of chocolate, the frills would be boring and kind of flat—short, vanilla. One aspect of the chocolate-and-vanilla-scissors, which have rarely been disputed, the question of provenance. But in the course of the last year, two new studies have radically rejiggered the origin stories of the two. On the chocolate front, the earliest chemical evidence of cocoa use about 1400 years has been pushed further into the past, and about 2,000 km to the South. For the vanilla part, researchers now believe that the beans were not only used by people more than two millennia earlier than previously thought, but a whole ocean away.”

Five GOP senators of facing competitive reelections raised more than $2 million in the quarter. Two highly-touted house GOP recruits hit the half-million-dollar mark, an impressive record for the first Challenger. On the leadership front, the house Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and house Minority whip Steve Scalise , both outraised Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Here are five other clues are the numbers in the trajectory of the 2020 congressional campaigns: 1. Several democratic Senate recruits have to prove their strength. … 2. Targeted house Democrats are still in big bucks. … 3. Texas Republicans, to increase the pace. … 4. Stage image for Mike Pompeo from Kansas. … 5. Scandal-plagued Republicans in a desperate area.”

The loot is more than double the $1.1 million that mayor Bill de Blasio grew up in total — nationwide — since the Start of his own White house bid in may. Buttigieg de Blasio humiliated in his own backyard through the collection of contributions of 14,000 residents of the city, more than double the de Blasio total 6,700 donors. … Buttigieg local supporters include such quintessential Gothamites as long-time Vogue editor Anna Wintour , media tycoon Barry Diller and financier Bill Ackman, the maximum contributions of $2,800, with Ackman doubling for both the primary and General elections.”

HOUSE PESTS

Emanuel Cleaver left the post of chair of the house procedures in the frustration over the bickering between Republicans and Democrats, the Missouri Democrat, called for lawmakers and the American people to ignore, President of Donald Trump’s online escapades, how he tweets from his presidency.’ “We can’t continue to react to this,’ Cleaver said on Wednesday on CNN’s” New day ” about the chaos that followed, to keep, as Democrats tried to vote to condemn racist tweets of the President, published over the weekend attacking four female minority women in Congress. … On Tuesday, the house finally elected, 240-187 to approve a non-binding resolution that ‘strongly’ condemned Trump the ” racist comments, which legitimized and increased the fear and hatred of the new Americans and people of color.’ In the end, four Republicans — Susan W. Brooks of Indiana, Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Will Hurd of Texas and Fred Upton of Michigan, and the independent Justin Amash of Michigan, in … with all of the 235 Democrats in favor of the resolution.”

Trumps tweets drive a wedge between the campaign and the critical voters – WashEx: “President Trump’s incendiary claims that his Democratic critics in Congress are un-American will drive a deep wedge between its 2020 campaign, and the critical elements that the coalition needs to he secure a second term in office. Suburban women and college-educated white background pushed doubts about Trump and support is crucial to his victory over Hillary Clinton. But for many, the snout with the President’s antics and rhetoric, the Democratic party in the midterm elections two years later. Senior Republican strategists warn that Trump will be elected could be the separation of the end of attacks on four female minority, the Democrats in Congress to permanently exile this important voting blocks, the calculation of the President, again. ‘The Republicans want this election about the economy and the judge. When it comes to Trumps tweets and temperament, it is likely that the Democrats have an enthusiasm advantage,” said Alex Conant, a GOP operative who has advised presidential candidates.”

Squad goals: Trump’s attacks ancestor 2020 – NYT: “With three days of the attacks on the four liberals, minorities, first-term women in Congress gave the President Trump and the Republicans have sent the clearest signal yet that your approach 2020 is a racist column, the reprise of the strategy that helped Mr. Trump closely capture the White house in 2016. It is the kind of fight that the President enjoys. He said that the helpers, in fact, that he is satisfied is the democratic response to his attacks, bragging that he is ‘marriage’ the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the democratic party, which the four women in the Congress were known as ‘the team.’ His efforts to stoke similar cultural and racial resentment during the 2018 mid-term elections with the fear of marauding immigrants caravan backfired, as his party lost control of the house. But he is undeterred on the way to his re-election campaign, bets that he can throw the whole democratic party as a radical and un-American.

AUDIBLE: I’VE GOT IT?
“You’re against Yucca Mountain, and you have to Nevada say.” – REP Dina Titus, D-Nev., the advice of the presidential candidates to visit your country and according to the WSJ.

FROM THE STANDS
“The Democrats in Congress missed a great opportunity to chastise the President in order to bring Republicans to their side, and take a giant leap for civil discourse. Trump’s remarks deserve condemnation; they were not the occasionally well-intentioned” love it or leave it ” sentence. Some members of Congress deserves to be the misrepresentation of facts required to be, but Mr. Trump also went on to claim that they hated our country. While such a I-know-you-heart attacks are often, you are still wrong. But the resolution hid-President misconduct by the dubious claim of racism – that was just dismissed as partisan trash. What a disappointment to see the excellent rates on our immigrants love for our United States in the first part of the resolution, the effort is destroyed in his accusations. Thank you for your civil discourse!” – Tom Parks, Rogers, Ark.

[Ed. Note: However, your premise assumed, Mr. Parks, that the goal was persuasion. It was a pure base-promoting alloy and only a pinch of glue to the other side. The whole uproar – accusations or dispatriotism, racism, corruption and worse – how do we make the politicians behave these days.]

“You said [in Monday’s mid-term report] Trump attacked people who were chosen to be the branching is superior. This is wrong. Legislative, executive and judiciary are co-equal, no? I realize Congress selected the President in the sense is turned on, that is, the laws that he is responsible for the enforcement, but still, “co-equal” is the term I’ve always heard that used to describe the relative position of the three branches. I could be wrong, but if I am, I would be grateful for the lesson. Think you are doing a great job.” – Thaddeus Perry, Fischer, Ind.

[Ed. Note: good question, Mr. Perry! Certainly there are those who agree with the concept of “co-equal branches,” but that’s not how the Constitution reads. The Charter is in order: the Legislative, the Executive and the judiciary. The Congress is to explain, in view of the major powers – especially the power, war, and taxes – and Congress has the power to remove officers from the other branches, the other branches can do nothing, much like the Congress. Sure, the judiciary is the weakest. It relies on the legislature for his money and the Executive to enforce its regulations. America was slouching against excessive Executive power, at least since the Wilson administration, because it’s just easier. The Americans have gotten extremely lazy guardians of their own liberty, and the pathetic frailty of the Congress is probably the biggest proof of that.]

Rockwell says, wants to enforce the city to formalize hours for the facility, should trespassing laws easier. Illaya Champion says the Post, ‘it is wrong’ to chase people away with the music.
