RE: Next steps

You could hear the naysayers in the media elite, who call them “bottom-tier” or snidely refer to them as “1 percenters.”

First of all, the media-FAILURE! Many of them are not even registering in polls, so 1 percent is correct. But you can bet that those who do not spend the liars in the mainstream press, to make corrections. (Note to all journalists or producers that see this: All the candidates are listed above, remain available for interviews, corndog eating contests, or perhaps some kind of trial-by-combat-arrangement with each other.)

But the biggest mistake is to say that you are at the bottom. Wrong again, media morons! (So sorry about all the media-bashing. No time too early or too late, no interview, topic to humiliating!)

There have been 276 men and women, the papers submitted have to run for President, starting with Willie Felix Carter, a former TV repairman from Los Angeles, the first filed in 1986, re-upping quadrennially, to Moses, Marie Dora Boyd, a personal injury lawyer from Ft. Smith, Ark., who on Tuesday.

Most of them are not lawyers, and certainly none of you was possible to solve, a TV and yet, here you are better than a guy some time to be running for President more than Joe Biden, and a woman to your home anywhere in the Arkansas River Valley to your case without discussing money up-front.

And don’t get us started on Grapelton Monroe Feret of Philadelphia. His campaign Committee’s name is simply listed as “DEEZ NUTZ.” You are all winners in our book, if you are a candidate, of exploiting the power of deez nuts move, but enter it in ALL CAPS.

But even those media jackals (again, sorry) not to credit you for the power of the past juggernauts like these three, they are still caught up in the expectations game, just because you’re, say, the mayor of America’s largest city, the Governor of a state larger than the United Kingdom or a longtime U.S. senator.

In the latest act of the corporate media rigged the system (don’t hate the player, hate the game, y ‘ all) all of them other than the former Congressman from Texas, will most probably not be included in the next edition of the presidential debate. While he has the chance, his brooding intensity – and, presumably, some explicit and some disturbing graphic novels, which he has not worked in his notebook to a nationwide audience, and the rest.

So, what will you do?

We see, sen. Gillibrand is currently dumping the Rest of their campaign coffers in an early stage, in TV commercials, such as elephant-ear knock, storm drains at the end of the county fair in an attempt to score a late rally-polling. Cool, Cool.

But at least she has something to do! What will you do, sitting at home, drinking boxed chardonnay and eat Baked Lays, while you stare holes in Julián Castro , and Amy Klobuchar?

Not to be the person sitting on her couch endlessly write, erase and re-write, congratulatory tweets for Andrew Yang. Be proactive and don’t let the lamestream media (ugh. Policy is the worst, right?!? Don’t be a stranger!) You Control Your Destiny.

Sure, you might be the noble thing like Jay Inslee and easy “drop-out” with a note of thanks to their supporters(s) and the promise to work hard for the eventual candidacy, and then return to your otherwise normal and fulfilling life to lead. But this is politics in 2019, and who has time for stainless -, normal-and meet?

The big idea is to do just so, they were never running in the first place.

Stick with us for a second here. If you delete your website, update your social media bios, cancel your upcoming interviews, and just pretend it never happened.

And if someone confronts them, if you change to walk through the halls of Congress, or maybe in your jar in the supermarket, just give them a super weird look and say “Uh… no. What you talk about, weirdo?” Then you just go to the Senate dining room or go buy some more boxed chardonnay, as it has never been done before.

Gaslighting this horrible Reporter is exactly what they deserve (seriously, drinks soon!).

THE RULES: KEEP THEM IN CHECK
“A man must be far gone in Utopian speculations, who can seriously doubt that, if these States should either be wholly divided, or only united, the searched partial confederacies, they would be thrown subdivisions in which, perhaps, have frequent and violent contests with each other.” – Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 6

TIME-OUT: BIRD SONG
NYT: “As the[Sesame Street] marked its 50-year anniversary — after 4,526 episodes, not to mention specials, movies, albums, and more — the legacy of ‘Sesame’ is clear: It influenced the world of music so much as it is shaped in TV history, inspiring countless fans and generations of artists… In his first appearance, in 1973, Johnny Cash gave his son the taping, and in the 90s returned with his granddaughter and daughter Rosanne Cash. During the late ‘70s and ‘80s, the artists, the earlier the sesame stoop was a crossover with the American Billboard charts: Carly Simon, Linda Ronstadt (a mariachi number!), Diana Ross, Paul Simon (being upstaged by a little girl), Billy Joel. In the 90s and 2000s, it was Celine Dion, the Dixie Chicks and Destiny’s Child. To observe for generations of children, at home or in school, the message was that the world could be famous stars accessible.”

The the two other constituents of their votes for Clinton, in spite of your desire to vote for Kasich.”

Hickenlooper it’s official – The Denver Post: “John Hickenlooper is the introduction of a bid Thursday to unseat Republican U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner, exactly a week after pulling out of his candidacy for the presidency. “I’ve always said that Washington was a lousy place for a guy like me who wants to get things done – but this is not a time to walk away from the table,’ the former Governor of Colorado, says in his announcement video, posted on hickenlooper.com. ‘… I’m not ready to fight for the people of Colorado.’ In the video, filmed at the ” Denver brewery, he founded, Hickenlooper echoes of his presidential pitch to voters on the termination of the conflict in Washington. And he promises to work to combat climate change, prescription drug prices, and economic injustice. … His entry will definitely be going back to the nascent Democratic Senate primary, the already 11 candidates for overturning. Early polls, Hickenlooper has shown Gardner exceeded in a hypothetical fight.”

TRUMP IS FOCUSED ON MIRRORS MINNESOTA
Politico: “President Donald Trump, Minnesota is the one that escaped in the year 2016. Now he is the host fixed to reflect the state in the year 2020 with the help of a provocative ex-radio-whose rantings earned him the nickname ” mini-Trump.’ Former GOP Rep. Jason Lewis is expected to start his Minnesota Senate money on Thursday with the leadership of two of Trump’s top political lieutenants. After the defeat of Minnesota by only 1.5 percentage points, the President has said, aide-de-camp to win repeatedly in the last few weeks, he decided, the democratic stronghold that had not gone so far yet for a Republican presidential candidate since 1972. Trumpf push-a reflection of its wider re-election blueprint, focusing on a cluster of Midwestern and Rust Belt States that were decided by razor-thin margins in the year 2016 and are likely to determine the outcome of the election.”

The voters have little appetite for impeachment – the Monmouth University: “The latest poll from Monmouth University finds that about a fifth of those who refuse, and the Trumps job performance join almost all of those who approve of the President to say that it goes ahead with a prosecution request is a bad idea. … Just over a third (35%) of Americans feel that Trump should be indicted and forced to leave the presidency, while a clear majority (59%) do not agree with this approach. Support for the President’s removal via impeachment is started in the range between 35% and 42% in Monmouth, this question of in July 2017, with the current results at the lower end of the range. Opposition to impeachment was between 53% and 59% during the same period.

THE JUDGMENT OF THE JUDGE: ON THE TOPIC OF ESPIONAGE
This week, Fox News Senior judicial Analyst judge Andrew Napolitano explains why he believes that Trump wants to give the government permanent authority to spy on Americans: “I am not in eyesight surveillance on a public road. I speak of this electronic monitoring, where one is when one sends or receives digital communication. FISA is to reduce an unconstitutional congressional effort to meet the requirements of the Fourth Amendment the probable cause of crime to probable cause of foreign Agency. … Some of my Fox News colleagues joke with me that I shovel against the tide when it comes to the defense of the right to privacy. They claim that there is no private life any more. I am not agree with you. How long we still have a Constitution, it must be taken seriously, and must mean what it says. And to conquer its deliberately stringent requirements for the activation of the government’s privacy remains the law of the land. The President has sworn to maintain the Constitution, not the NSA.” More here.

JUST A LITTLE OFF THE TOP
CTV: “It was a hot day in Slave Lake, [Alberta, Canada] on Wednesday, so Sam Assaf left the door to his barbershop open to the fresh air. And then a wild customer came in the LionsDen Barbershop. “I’ve never seen a bear in my life’, Assaf seen CTV News Edmonton said. “It happens to load in my hair.’ ‘How ironic? A bear depends on the LionsDen.’ Assaf called 911, and while he says the little bear was harmless, and no one was hurt, it caused damage to his three-week-old Barber shop. “He terrorized the place,’ Assaf said. “He’s ruining my work. He emptied in my barbershop … it was a bad day for me.’ The police said, the people are images outside, and the bear finally went. “It was such a mess, but luckily he never took down my clippers. These are expensive tools.'”
