The final hurdles for the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court as nearly a half million documents on Kavanaugh’s background aren’t enough for supporting his background. The White House is citing ‘executive privilege’ as reason for withholding approximately 100 thousand records about Kavanaugh. Senator Chuck Schumer says the Trump administration is hiding something.

Now that Senator John McCain has been buried, who will take his place? McCain planned his own funeral and memorial services and excluded President Trump, but did invite former Presidents Bush and Obama.

Seg #1 – Caitlin Huey-Burns – A tight runoff election in Ohio’s 12th District between Republican Troy Balderson who had 50 percent, (101,574 votes), while Democrat Danny O’Connor had 49 percent (99,820 votes). With the decision still awaiting a final tally, the outcome is a strong alarm to GOP leaders who need to save the seat when it comes up again in the fall general election. Can Democrats find enough votes to take the seat away after 35 years of Republican control.

Seg #2 – A.B. Stoddard – The successor for Speaker of the House, currently held by Wisconsin Representative, Paul Ryan heats up as expected successor Kevin McCarthy confronts President Donald Trump’s support of Ohio Representative, Jim Jordan who added his name into the consideration list last week. On the other side of the aisle, can Nancy Pellosi keep her seat as Minority Leader and who (if anybody) could take her place?

Seg #3 – Kristen McQueary – Chicago Mayor, Rahm Emanuel has a gang and crime problem and while he acknowledges the situation, it appears that he can only push the blame to others, including Governor, Bruce Rauner. With calls for his resignation from religious leaders and challenges from nine declared candidates currently running against him; Emanuel has several battles to fight in addition to ramping up his re-election campaign.

Seg #4 – Carl Cannon – Infowars and it’s mouthpiece, Alex Jones has has several social media accounts (Facebook, iTunes, YouTube, Pinterest, MailChimp, and more) suspended or postings pulled because of their content which have been classified as “hate speech” and “misinformation”. Where do these organizations draw the line between free speech and censorship and are they playing by the same rules? The first few pre-season games in the NFL’s new season have taken place and player protests during the National Anthem continued… as did President Trump’s comments about it.

President Trump insists that “Fake News” is the downfall of the enemy of the American people. Sarah Sanders had her speech ready during a White House press briefing this past week. Is the media animosity against the Trump administration anything new? Trump thinks the fake news from negative press might actually cause a war. Ohio will be holding a special election on Tuesday to determine the future of a longtime GOP held seat in Congress. Poll results say the contest is a tie; can President Trump help keep the seat? Is there a new “McCarthyism” growing in the United States and the journalistic threats to free expression in the country? With the Internet archiving just about everything someone says and posts, we are seeing a dramatic increase of past political commentary and opinion being dredged up in efforts to take down business leaders, politicians, and even respected Hollywood elite.

GDP (Gross Domestic Product) numbers came out and they exceeded expectations. Do voters realize how this economic growth translates to more job opportunity and bigger paychecks? Primary elections are almost over and campaigns are taking shape for the fall elections. State Governors and politicians on Capitol Hill are preparing for big fights this fall. Another incident in the White House created by a media member who wouldn’t follow the rules, lands them banned from future events. Will the media screamers learn patience, obedience, and decorum?
