It’s happy hour news and there is a lot to talk about, so let’s get to today’s headline news. But first, a toast to the residents of the Carolinas.
Today’s drink of choice is none other than the Hurricane and as we cheer and clink glasses, may you all be safe and remember, your property can be replaced, your life cannot. You have insurance, so forget your house and material possessions, and do what you have to in order to be safe.
I’ve been through Hurricanes Andrew, Katrina, Wilma, and Irma. You will be safe if you heed the warnings.
It’s 6:43 p.m. as I write this sentence, and the Carolinas is already experiencing ten foot storm surges. Even though Hurricane Florence has been downgraded to a Category 2 hurricane, please, please, do not take this lightly.
Be safe and be smart.
President Trump and Puerto Rico
I’m just going to show President Trump’s tweet and leave it at that. I have nothing else to say on the matter because it is what it is. Everyone is always wrong, he is always right.
“3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000.”
Even House Speaker Paul Ryan accepted the death toll caused by Hurricane Maria.
Nothing is set in stone yet, but, the media is reporting that a plea deal may have been reached between Paul Manafort and prosecutors from the Robert Mueller investigation.
Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh
Well, something is up, and we don’t know yet the full details, but apparently, Dianne Feinstein, Senator from California and ranking Democrat in the Senate Judiciary Committee, has information concerning Brett Kavanaugh and allegations of something he did while in high school.
Senator Feinstein has referred the matter to federal investigative authorities.
FEMA & ICE
Because deporting immigrants is more important than saving lives and helping those affected by natural disasters, President Trump diverted $10 million in funds from FEMA to ICE.
To those in the Carolinas, sit tight and you will get through this soon enough. See you tomorrow.
