Coffee & Morning Headlines- Hurricane Michael, Stamps, Rosenstein, and Trump Rally
Good morning to you. Pour that first cup of coffee and let’s go over today’s headline news.
My mom always says “todo biene y todo pasa,” which translated means everything comes and goes. With that, powerful Hurricane Michael came and left, but left behind a path of destruction.
The category 4 hurricane is now a tropical storm that battered the Florida panhandle with winds at 155 miles per hour. This is the third most powerful hurricane in history for the United States (continental) and Michael comes just days after the United Nations released its report on climate change that suggested radical changes in order to reduce natural disasters and irreversible effect.

If approved by the Postal Regulatory Commission, the price of stamps will take a jump from 50 cents to 55 cents.
The Student Loan Debt Crisis
Rising debt is a problem for everyone, and especially for a country if its citizens carry a heavy debt load. Now, the student loan debt crisis hits $1.4 trillion, the second largest household debt behind mortgages which is at $9 trillion.
Sham Investigation on Brett Kavanaugh
Speaking before the Senate, FBI Director Chris Wray said the investigation into Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was “limited in scope,” but it was “consistent with the standard process.”
Director Wray explained the difference between a criminal investigation versus a background check. Note to FBI Director Wray- sexual assault is a criminal matter and it should have been investigated as such.
There have been numerous ethics complaints filed against Justice Kavanaugh. Those complaints are now being transferred to the 10th Circuit. Merrick Garland has recused himself from the reviewing the complaints.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Former FBI Director Andrew McCabe
It’s being reported that Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein had a tense exchange with Andrew McCabe, the former director of the FBI regarding both of them telling each other to recuse themselves from the Robert Mueller investigation.
There also seems to be a memo written by McCabe that says Rosenstein was talking of the invoking the 25th Amendment against President Trump which Rosenstein has denied. Those allegations almost cost Rosenstein his job a couple of weeks ago.
“There was collusion between Hillary, the Democrats and Russia. There was a lot of collusion with them and Russia and lots of other people.”
Yeah, he actually said that.
Have a great Thursday and for those of you in the panhandle, wishing you all well as you bounce back from Hurricane Michael, and trust me, you will. Be strong.

So, President Trump now saying that Hillary Clinton colluded with Russia, which really means then that he did.
Our Presidency has become a 3 am. infomercial- trying to sell you garbage you don't need or want.
