The LuLac Edition #3570, August 10th, 2017

The other morning on WILK Newsradio when I was hosting The Sue Henry Show, I referenced how long it took the Watergate investigation to play out. I said that there are things going on in investigations that we don't know about. An investigation is just that. A search for facts. News came yesterday that the home of Paul Manafort was raided at dawn by the FBI. His home was raided the day after he testified. That was late July. 
It is amazing to me that this was not leaked. Which tells you that the leaking is coming from the Trump White House.
Investigations move at their own pace. There are ways to read into them but you just never know sometime. However, when a former campaign head's house is raided, that cannot be a good sign.
Trump and his people promptly threw Manafort under the bus saying he was only with the campaign a short time.
Half a year! In Scaramuci time, that's a lifetime.


North Korea called Donald Trump “bereft of reason.”
The quote carried on Korea’s state-run news agency KCNA, also warned that “only absolute force can work” on the US President, according to the Associated Press.
Trump warned that North Korea’s actions would “be met with fire and fury like the world has ever seen”.
Has he not heard of Hiroshima and Nagasaki?
You’d think the crazy kid in North Korea and Trump switched places and quotes, don’t you?
Trump also lied on Twitter saying that “my first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal.”
HE DIDN’T. Wouldn’t know it if he fell over it! 
Oh and get this!!!! We have no Ambassador yet in South Korea! NONE!  
Here's the thing about the Dictator from North Korea. He should be treated like other countries who obtained atomic weapons. Pakistan and India has them. Now to be sure they have never exhibited the threats and bombast of Kim. But maybe, maybe if we didn't provoke him with senseless language, and treat him like an adult, that might cut down the noise.
Kudos to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson  for trying to calm the nerves of America. Something our President has never done.

Vice President Mike Pence’s political aspirations will likely get another boost next week as he jets off for a high-profile trip to Latin America.
Newsweek reports that The State Department requested “nearly 700” visas for the security and protocol teams traveling in advance to one Latin American country alone to prepare for Pence’s arrival, said a diplomatic source. He and others with long experience in preparing for diplomatic trips say they have never seen numbers like that and couldn’t understand the unprecedented visa requests. The diplomatic source called it a “curious” number that dwarfed even the advance teams for President Barack Obama’s trip to Brazil, Chile and El Salvador combined in 2011.
It appears Pence is doing what Gerald Ford did when Richard Nixon was under fire. GET OUT OF DODGE! Ford took foreign trips, stateside ones too and defended the President. But stayed away from the minutia of the investigation. I think Pence feels that after defending Trump for so long, he pretty much doesn’t owe him much.

President Trump said he didn’t think Opiad Abuse was a problem. As a matter of fact he just told people to stop taking them. Well at least our Governor Tom Wolf is doing something different. Gov. Tom Wolf and several members of Clarion University's administration held a press conference recently to announce the creation of an online Opioid Treatment Specialist certificate program.
The program, the first of its kind in the state, is the university's response to the growing epidemic in the state.
"Fighting the ongoing battle against heroin and opioid abuse in the state is a top priority of my administration," Wolf said. "I'm proud to announce this new curriculum with Clarion University because education is a powerful force in this fight and it is my sincere hope that people take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about opioid addiction and what part we can each play in this effort."

U.S. Representative Matt Cartwright announced that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) awarded $1,476,012 to Scranton Lackawanna Head Start. This federal grant will be used for the continuation of high quality, comprehensive, early childhood education.
Head Start is a federal program created in 1965 to address the educational and developmental needs of low-income pre-school children. Head Start’s comprehensive service system provides social, nutritional, and educational services for thousands of children and their families across the United States. Head Start emphasizes the role of parents as their child's first and most important teacher.
“I am a proud proponent of these programs that work to break the cycle of poverty by ensuring children are better prepared for success in school,” said Rep. Cartwright. “Head Start and Early Head Start programs are an important investment in our community and our economy.”
Head Start services are funded and overseen by the Office of Head Start (OHS) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), a division of HHS. The AFC promotes the economic and social well-being of children, families, individuals, and communities with leadership and resources for compassionate, effective delivery of human services

It's reassuring to believe that our mature and reflective preznit can be trusted to keep us safe from the only slightly less wise goon from North Korea. Many thanks to the geniuses who voted for Agent Orange. We owe you.
