Highlights of the News

Melania Trump is still our First Lady.

ITEM 1The New York Post reported Mini Mike "Bloomberg has already spent more than $200 million in ads on his 2020 presidential campaign — but not a dime of it in Iowa — the first state where Democrats will vote, on Feb. 3, to determine the party’s nominee to take on President Trump."

The political consultants are milking him so hard, he should change his name to Elsie.

ITEM 2Crain's Chicago Business reported, "U.S. stocks retreated from all-time highs after Bloomberg reported that existing tariffs on billions of dollars of Chinese goods will likely stay in place after the presidential election.

"The S&P 500, Nasdaq Composite and Dow Jones Industrial indexes all pulled back from records as the conditions underscored lingering concern about future progress in negotiations. Treasuries climbed earlier after a gauge of underlying inflation rose less than forecast."

Mini Mike better be careful. Stock manipulation is a federal crime.

Oh wait. He's a Democrat now. Never mind.

ITEM 3The South China Morning Post reported, "The trade deal to be signed this week will include pledges by China to buy $200 billion of US goods over two years in four industries, a Trump administration official and two other sources briefed on the matter said.

"The target for manufactured goods purchases will be the largest, worth around $75 billion. China will also promise to buy $50 billion worth of energy, $40 billion in agriculture and $35 billion to $40 billion in services, the three people said.

"On Monday night, meanwhile, the United States removed China from a list of currency manipulators, a sign that the relationship between the world’s two largest economies was thawing slightly in the lead up to the signing of the phase one deal."

The tariffs are unimportant. Red China eats those. But Mini Mike thinks tanking the stock market will cost President Trump re-election.

ITEM 4: The Associated Press reported, "After weeks of delay and strategizing, the U.S. House is planning to vote Wednesday to send the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump to the Senate to start the trial on removing him from office."

The story also said, "Senate Republicans are signaling they would reject the idea of simply voting to dismiss the articles of impeachment against Trump as he has suggested. They are considering whether to allow a vote on such a motion to dismiss and another to subpoena testimony from new witnesses."

It appears she got what she wanted after all.

The rhino sleeps tonight.

ITEM 5: The Daily Fodder reported, "While Democrats and Republicans are both fighting over impeachment, another President Trump victory slipped through the news media's radar.

"The House just passed a bill to secure 5G infrastructure amid top intelligence officials warning that Huawei is a Chinese Communist Party spying company rolling out 5G to increase China's surveillance reach. President Trump has been actively trying to limit the Chinese Communist Party-tied company from being used by allies and signed an executive order to stop the purchase of foreign-made telecommunications equipment deemed a national security risk."

Another bargaining chip for the president.

ITEM 6: The Hill reported, "Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says Republicans could subpoena Hunter Biden to testify about his business dealings with a Ukrainian gas company if Democrats insist on having witnesses such as former National Security Adviser John Bolton testify at the Senate impeachment trial."

Even if Democrats don't insist, President Donald John Trump has a right to call witnesses.

ITEM 7: The New York Post reported, "Students at Iran’s Islamic Azad University are being offered a novel new career choice — suicide terrorist.

"Leaflets are being distributed at the influential school urging students to sign up for Jihad missions against the United States and Israel to avenge the death of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani."

This is why President Trump shut down student visas from Iran in September.

Too bad we cannot ban some U.S. students.

ITEM 8: MSNBC reported, "Democratic presidential contender Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Tuesday that she would begin to forgive student loan debt on the first day of her administration, using legal tools that would allow her to bypass Congress."


She doan need no steenkeeng Constitution. She will just give a trillion-dollar gift to her industry, higher education.

Pretty neat trick. Have the government guarantee student loans. Charge whatever you want, and then have the government eat the loans.

ITEM 9: The Washington Times reported, "New York City defied a deportation request from ICE last year and released an illegal immigrant into the community — and now he stands accused of killing a 92-year-old woman beloved by her community.

"Reeaz Khan, 21, has been charged with murder and sexual abuse against someone incapable of consent. Police say they caught him initiating the attack on surveillance video.

"U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says he never should have been out on the streets anyway, after he was arrested on weapons and assault charged last year, and ICE asked New York to turn him over.

"Police refused, under the city’s sanctuary policy, ICE says."

What sort of 21-year-old rapes and murders a 92-year-old woman?

What sort of city enables him?

ITEM 10: Breitbart News reported, "An Iranian national arrested near President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, originally arrived in the United States as a refugee, Breitbart News has learned.

"On January 10, Palm Beach Police Department arrested 38-year-old Masoud Yarieilzoleh, from Iran, who was apparently sleeping in a gazebo in a park in Palm Beach, according to the Palm Beach Post. When police searched Yarieilzoleh, they found a 17-inch machete, two 4.5-inch knives, and an ax, along with about $22,000 in cash.

"Also, Yarieilzoleh’s car had been parked at Palm Beach International Airport. Yarieilzoleh was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and has since been released from police custody with only a notice to appear in court later this month.

"A law enforcement source exclusively confirmed to Breitbart News that Yarieilzoleh first arrived in the U.S. from Iran in 2014 as a refugee. Two years later, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) awarded Yarieilzoleh with a green card, which allows him to permanently remain in the country.

"Between 2009 and 2016, former President Obama resettled more than 25,000 refugees from Iran in the U.S. despite the country being on the State Department’s list of state sponsors of terrorism since 1984."

Obama the Awful almost got the president killed.

ITEM 11: The Sacramento Bee reported, "Turning right on a red light without fully stopping will cost you $500 in California. Parking blocking a wheelchair access curb could get you a $1,100 ticket. Is your license plate paint peeling? Some car owners have been hit with a $1,000 ticket for that.

"State officials who set those fees are now acknowledging that the high amounts are threatening the financial stability of lower-income drivers who can’t afford to pay those amounts.

"In his state budget proposal, Gov. Gavin Newsom is calling on judicial authorities to create a statewide program that will allow some of California’s poorer drivers to have their traffic citation amounts cut by 50 percent or more.

"If approved by the legislature, Newsom’s proposal would expand an existing traffic fine reduction program called myCitation which exists in four counties: San Francisco, Shasta, Tulare and Ventura."

If the fines are too high, why not reduce them for everyone?

The story said the state collected $1.4 billion in traffic fines last year, which answered my question.

ITEM 12: The Hill reported, "The House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday announced that it plans to investigate the Department of Homeland Security's Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), which encourages migrants from Central America to seek asylum in Mexico rather than in the U.S.

"News of the letter comes just hours after Fox News reported that the Trump administration has begun sending Mexican migrants from non-border states on flights to central Mexico, a policy that reportedly began last month."

Democrats fear the program will be a success.

ITEM 13: Finally, someone in Hollywood with the guts to stand up to Drumpf.
May the force be with you, Captain Stubing.

ITEM 14: Vince Vaughn will never work again in Hollywood, the town that gave us Harvey Weinstein, Roman Polanski, and Charles Manson.
And that's another article of impeachment: Colluding with a Wedding Crasher.

ITEM 15: Bernie loves concentration camps.
What was a right-wing joke is now a left-wing ambition. Remember, it was a Bernie Bro who shot Republican Congressman Steve Scalise.

ITEM 16: A hero in three tweets.

Never look down at a dog walker. We each have talents. His is picking up poop. If it is so easy, why don't Democrats?

ITEM 17: Several readers pointed out that Alex Cora earned a little nit of Trumpenfreude the old fashioned way: by cheating and getting caught. Cora managed the Red Sox to a world championship in 2018. With it came an invitation to the White House.

Cora decided to feud with the president, falsely claiming the president failed to help Puerto Rico recover from a hurricane. This divided his team, which finished third.

But that no longer is his worry. The team fired Cora for cheating -- when he was with the Astros.

TMZ reported, "Alex Cora is OUT as the Boston Red Sox manager ... after both sides 'mutually agreed to part ways' in light of the MLB's cheating probe. The league's investigation findings determined Cora was the mastermind behind the Houston Astros' sign-stealing system when he was the bench coach in 2017."

Major League Baseball likely will suspend him from managing any team for at least a year.

Never feud with Donald John Trump. You cannot win -- and cheating makes it worse.

ITEM 18: Speaking of Trumpenfreude, the Associated Press reported, "Prosecutors say California attorney Michael Avenatti has been rearrested for alleged bail violations."

The Creepy Porn Lawyer was on bail awaiting trial for extortion. I am not saying he is a serial criminal, but with his track record, he could be Joe Biden's son.

Flashback to Politico on September 14, 2018, "Michael Avenatti Is Winning the 2020 Democratic Primary. He won’t be the nominee. But he’s setting the terms of the debate — and that could damage the rest of the field, and the country."

I swear these doofuses couldn't cover a fire in their own building.
