Good Morning- Monday’s News and Coffee
Good morning to you as we start the week. Monday’s are always tough, but with some coffee we’ll make it through the day. So, what is important in today’s coffee and morning news?
War hero and Senator from Arizona – John McCain passed away from a rare form of brain cancer over the weekend. Politicians both Republicans and Democrats are praising his career.
A memorial service is being held at the National Cathedral in Washington where former Presidents Barak Obama and George Bush are expected to give eulogies. President Trump was not invited to the funeral because of his never-ending feud and attacks on “Maverick.”
If you are keeping score, President Trump also wasn’t invited to the funeral services of former First Lady Barbara Bush.
McCain will be buried at the U.S. Naval Academy.
Jacksonville Mass Shooting
Two mass shootings occurred this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida. The first one was after a high school football game, the second at a gamer’s competition in Jacksonville Landing, an open-air market.
In total, eleven were injured and there were multiple fatalities. The shooter was identified as David Katz from Baltimore, Maryland.
Katz’s motive was unknown, but reports indicate when he lost the gaming competition, he got angry and that’s when he started firing.
Protests occurred over the weekend against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Protests were nationwide.
On the one side, Kavanaugh is a conservative and will tip the Supreme Court to the right. In addition, because President Trump is an unindicted co-conspirator in Michael Cohen’s plea deal last week, Democrats want to hold off Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.
The Republicans have been pushing hard to have Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing heard even though all the required documents/background checks that are usually performed have not been completed.
Hurricane Lane that was barreling towards Hawaii was downgraded to a Category 2 Hurricane, but did dump forty-five inches of rain causing major flooding on the island.
Have a good Monday and be safe.
