Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney Admits to Quid Pro Quo with Ukraine, tells the American People to “get over it” in a Press Conference Last Thursday

The phrase, quid pro quo, directly translates from Latin as “something for something.” In modern English this Latin phrase is used to mean an exchange of goods or services, in which one transfer is contingent upon the other. Ever since the story first broke regarding President Trump’s scandalous phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump has vehemently denied that there was any sort of quid pro quo. However, the Trump Administration’s acting Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, admitted in a press conference last Thursday, October 17, 2019, that President Trump withheld aid from Ukraine as part of a quid pro quo.

“Bernie’s Back” Rally in Queens, New York Attracts Crowd of Over 25,000 People

Senator Bernie Sanders had his first rally after his stent procedure last Saturday, October 19, 2019, in Queens, New York. The turnout was massive, as has been the case for the majority of his rallies so far. The speakers that took the stage before Senator Sanders included prominent activists, elected officials, and public servants. Based on the massive crowd turnout alone, it seems that the mainstream media’s under-representation of the support for Bernie Sanders is a hollow narrative.

The Trump Campaign Violated a Cease and Desist Letter from the Prince Estate at a Minneapolis Campaign Event Last Week

From relatively small crimes such as copyright or intellectual property law infringement to large crimes such as violating the United States Constitution, Trump has done them both. In October of last year, the Prince Estate requested that the Trump Campaign “cease all use” of Prince’s songs after Trump used them on pre-Election Day rallies. On October 15, 2018 The Prince Estate received a response from Trump’s Campaign that noted they would not play any of Prince’s music in connections with its activities going forward.

Support for Sanders is Under-represented by the Mainstream Media

In an ideal world, determinations of political front-runners would be made based on an aggregate of these different metrics. If we relied solely on polling numbers to determine the front-runners of the Democratic Presidential Primary, it would seem that Warren comes out on top or perhaps Biden. However, that is exactly the narrative that they want you to buy into. It benefits them and their stock-holders if Sanders and his grassroots political revolution are constantly under-represented, invalidated, or discredited by the media. Keep in mind Biden was leading in many polls prior to the whistle-blower coming forward regarding Trump’s dealings with Ukraine and Trump’s subsequent backlash at Biden. Even still, these numbers fluctuate from poll to poll, state to state, and day to day.

Appeals Court Rejects Trump’s Appeal of House Oversight Committee’s Subpoena of his Financial Records

On October 11, 2019 a federal appeals court rejected Trump’s appeal of the House Oversight Committee’s subpoena for his financial records. Although this is a win for Americans who value transparency in government, I fear that this is an issue that will not be resolved with this decision. We have to remember that throughout the end of President Obama’s second term in office, Republicans vehemently stone-walled even the idea of Obama nominating a new Supreme Court Justice to fill the place of the late Justice Scalia.

Today’s Lie, One of Many

The administrations of Washington and Jefferson set the foundation for our Democratic Republic. They led the way in revolting against a tyrannical king in order to usher in a new world order in which the people hold the power. However, our current President seems to enjoy power and abhor any criticism, much like the tyrannical king we chose to separate ourselves from so long ago.
