Trump seems to be imploding and that means his programs may not get approved: which means this market may take a turn DOWN. We are looking at two new buys but with all the political turmoil, we are hesitant to do anything right now. Still holding all positions.
We will set here and read the this new book: SEE BELOW
BOOKS: We skim through a lot of highly promoted books….skimmed meaning most of these are crap, boring, and simply rehashed old stuff that we have read many times and we surf thru the boring stuff.
In contast the new book The Smear is loaded with fascinating information and stories on the organizations (Media Matters) and scuzz-bags that smear politicians and other talking heads. We doubt most Americans have any idea of the extent of this ‘industry’ and we strongly suggest you read this book.
The Smear How Shady Political Operatives and Fake News Control What You See, What You Think by Sharyl Attkisson, a five time Emmy Award winner.
Ever hear of Sinclair Broadcasting? New right-wing competitor to FOX???????
We only started reading about Sinclair Broadcast a month ago when the rumors circulated that high profile people were going to defect to Sinclair. Link below to full story.
The growing anxiety in America over the rise of Sinclair stems from the belief the company’s close connections to Trump have allowed it to skirt market regulations. Already the biggest broadcaster in the country, Sinclair is poised to make its biggest move yet. If the FCC approves Sinclair’s $3.9bn purchase of an additional 42 stations, it would reach into the homes of almost three-quarters of Americans.
And you don’t believe there is voter corruption in California??!!!!
Judicial Watch lays out the specifics: “[T]here were more total registered voters than there were adults over the age of 18 living in each of the following eleven (11) counties: Imperial (102%), Lassen (102%), Los Angeles (112%), Monterey (104%), San Diego (138%), San Francisco (114%), San Mateo (111%), Santa Cruz (109%), Solano (111%), Stanislaus (102%), and Yolo (110%).” The letter notes that the percentage in L.A. Country may be as high as 144%.
