Trump’s top economic advisor Larry Kudlow has hinted that another supposed middle-class tax cut may be in the works, a “Tax Cut 2.0” to be delivered—Surprise! Surprise!—in time for the 2020 election season, an bare naked ploy to try to convince average Americans he really cares about and their economic interests.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said Trump has no defense and that's why he won't participate in impeachment.

Back in 2004, Thomas Frank’s book What’s the Matter with Kansas? elevated the state as the textbook case of how the Republican party has been able to leverage a platform of conservative social values to sway the electorate to vote against its economic interests. Railing against abortion, affirmative action, big government, elitism, political correctness, and the like, Republicans surfed the wave of voters’ cultural outrage to election victories and then performed the bait-and-switch.
Richard J. Danzig and Sean O’Keefe, who were Navy secretaries under Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush, warned of President Trump, “His values are not those of our military. It will do grievous damage to our armed services if they become so.”

Remember in 2016 when an armed Oregon militia group, led by Ammon and Ryan Bundy, occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Princeton, Oregon?

The national security threats the behavior of President Donald Trump and his administration have posed to the United States have justifiably been the focus and concern of those members of congress leading the impeachment inquiry. After all, the Mueller report compellingly concluded that the Russian Government “interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion” and discovered numerous points of contacts between Russia and the Trump associates leading up to, and even after, the 2016 Presidential election.

The handling of the Mueller report should serve as a cautionary tale. The report was full of facts, and Democrats kept trying to confirm them instead of blaring and declaring them. The facts dissipated, losing credibility.
