The LuLac Edition #3442, March 3rd, 2017

First off it is not unusual for sitting Senators associated with a Presidential campaign to meet with foreign officials. It is also not unusual for members of a prospective Cabinet to meet with a Foreign Leader. However if that country has been proven to be hostile to the interests of the United States and there is a pattern of meetings then that still might be a coincidence. But when those meetings are kept under the radar and then found out, you have to wonder why there has been such a visceral reaction and denial about the content of those meetings after they came to light.
The President himself tweeted voters of Democrats meeting with Russian officials but those were meetings covered by the press at the time and with a public record. 
Plus this Russian Ambassador was at the Republican National Convention.  Where did he get the credentials? How did the media miss this?
I’m not a betting man but if I were I’d bet that this President is scared to death about his loans and ties to Russia hitting the news. That’s why he never released his tax returns and that’s why his entire White House has gone postal on anyone making a big deal out of this. In the meantime, screwing with the way elections are conducted is a very big deal.
The REPUBLICAN party that has wrapped itself in a flag many times over, the REPUBLICAN party that reminds us constantly how much more patriotic they are than us dern leeberals think it’s just fine that a foreign government messed with our biggest election. Ironic that like Trump running for the first time.....reached for the the big ring.
So did the Russians.

Then there’s this. The President this week said that America needs to start winning wars again or not fight them at all. Has this man ever been to the Vietnam War Memorial where 55,000 names are etched into a wall? Did he minimize their sacrifice because they didn’t win? How about Korea where we had a negotiated peace? Were the people who sacrificed their lives not worth it?
I understand if he meant we have to stop getting into undeclared wars. But the way it sounded, Trump insulted all military fighters who followed their orders and died with honor for their country.

Yep the former President has been working on those payroll spread sheets for those paid protestors. (Photo: Business Insider)
The President has said that the protesters are being paid to attack his agenda. Okay, I’ll play:
1. How? Cash, money order, gift certificates.
2. What was the distribution plan. Were 1099’s given out? Who brought the cash? Where is the paper trail?
3. Why is it so hard to believe that Trump activists who wanted to get rid of Obama care did it out of their patriotic duty while people who have relatives benefiting from Obama care would want to be paid?
4. Trump needs to know that his election was not a mandate for everybody. It was a mandate for whole America who are afraid about the completion of their country changing, not the character.

Now I’m very sure the Executive Producer of “The Apprentice”, you know the guy, will say that the recent news that his successor has decided to call it quits after this season was because of failed ratings. Former two term Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said with Trump being involved in the show people have a bad taste and don't want to participate as a spectator or as a sponsor or in any other way support the show," Schwarzenegger told "It's a very divisive period now and I think this show got caught up in all that division” he added.
The news comes after Schwarzenegger's stint on the NBC show was plagued by poor ratings and recent reports that sponsors were ending their relationships with the show because of its continued links to it its former host, President Donald Trump, who remains a credited producer.
Trump like all REPUBLICANS again over reached and wanted to remain as Executive Producer. Many thought that act alone was a conflict of interest. Plus the new cast of celebrities were really never weres!
However I’m sure the REPUBLICAN President will blame Arnold. In the meantime, I’m good with Schwarzenegger’s suggestion that he and the former host of “The Apprentice” change jobs. We couldn’t do any worse.

Last week I was saddened to learn about the death of Talk Show and Radio pundit Alan Colmes. I became very much aware of Colmes when I was selling and doing board work for WARD Radio. Colmes had the afternoon drive show on 1550. He was a liberal but certainly had a decent following when a different political spectrum of opinion was not only allowed but encouraged. This was Colmes pre Fox Radio and TV.
When the station owner Jim Ward passed away on March 22nd, 1994 Colmes was one of the first to offer his condolences on the air. Here’s a bit about Colmes from the New York Times.

since the dumpster has trouble spelling a word like "hereby" (those silent letters are killers), maybe instead of "apprentice", he should be executive producer of "are you smarter than a fifth grader"
