Trump Alpha-Dogged Angela Merkel At G7 With A Starburst

Published

on

According to a report from CBS, President Donald J. Trump made quite a spectacle with a Starburst candy at the G7 summit.

“[Trump] stood up, he put his hand in his pocket, his suit jacket pocket, and he took two Starburst candies out, threw them on the table and said to Merkel, ‘Here Angela, don’t say I never give you anything,’” said Ian Bremmer, senior global affairs contributor for CBS.

Bremmer provided little context for the exchange, but context is unnecessary for understanding Trump’s massive power play.

“Despite what you have heard from the FAKE NEWS, I had a GREAT meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel,” he said. “Nevertheless, Germany owes…..”

Trump recently took a swipe at the migrant-laden European nation on Twitter.

“The people of Germany are turning against their leadership as migration is rocking the already tenuous Berlin coalition,”  he said. “Crime in Germany is way up. Big mistake made all over Europe in allowing millions of people in who have so strongly and violently changed their culture!”

Meanwhile, Merkel is fighting to save her chancellorship and political career, which have been marred by an “open door” policy resulting in the migration of 1.6 million “refugees” from Africa and the Middle East. The wave of migrants has caused devastating crime and employment issues, as well as a housing crisis.

“We are in a serious situation because the question of the migration crisis evolved into a power question,” German lawmaker Kai Whittaker told the BBC. “It could well be that at the end of next week we have a new situation… Probably a new chancellor.”

Whatever the relationship between the two leaders, there seems to be little question about who is in charge.

Iowa Certifies Republican Congressional Candidate as Winner by SIX VOTES

The closest congressional election in decades.

Published

on

The Iowa State Board of Canvass voted on Monday to certify a Republican congressional candidate as the winner of an election for the state’s 2nd district, with a recount leaving Mariannette Miller-Meeks up on Democrat Rita Hart by a mere six votes.

The final standing result for the election of Iowa’s 2nd congressional district leaves Miller-Meeks with 196,964 votes, and Hart with 196,568 votes. Miller-Meeks’ margin of victory had stood at 47 votes before a mandatory recount, dwindling to a final lead of a half dozen. The election is slated to become the closes congressional race in the United States since 1984, and the closest in Iowa since 1916.

Hart is expected to legally challenge the vote after Monday’s certification. A GOP victory in the Democrat-leaning swing district would be the 14th Republican pickup this year, significantly eroding the Democrat majority in the House of Representatives.

While the race is extraordinarily close, I am proud to have won this contest and look forward to being certified as the winner,” said Miller-Meeks, an Iowa State Senator representing Ottumwa on Saturday when declaring victory. “It is the honor of a lifetime to be elected to serve the people of eastern and southern Iowa. Iowans are tenacious, optimistic and hardworking, and I will take those same attributes to Washington, D.C., on their behalf.

The recount process had proven dramatic, with results of Miller-Meeks’ outstanding lead placed in jeopardy when a recount board identified and counted dozens of absentee ballots that weren’t previously accounted for. It’s likely Hart will litigate in hopes of getting county clerks to count additional ballots that had been ruled unlawful.

As the nation demands answers to allegations of pervasive election misconduct and voter fraud, it’s worth noting that only a handful of ballots can overturn the end result of many local, county, and state elections. Let no illegal ballot infiltrate the final count, and let no legal vote go uncounted.
