Trump’s war on the media has been non-stop since the campaign began and there are no signs of it coming to an end. Now a planned protest of articles by members of the media have only pushed the battle further.

John Brennan wants to sue President Donald Trump after the revocation of Brennan’s security clearance and claims the action was a retaliatory action and an attempt to silence complaints about Trump.

New York’s Governor, Andrew Cuomo made a statement last week in which he said, “We’re not going to make America great again; it was never that great.” Was that a mistake and will it hurt his future political career?

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?
