1. The Iran Deal is just one more campaign promise kept by the president and his record on those promises is pretty good
— So far he has appointed a conservative Supreme Court Justice, cut taxes, killed the individual mandate, withdrawn from Paris Climate Accord, withdrawn from the TPP, slashed regulations, cut immigration, increased defense spending, and now has withdrawn from the Iran deal.
— His two major policy failures appear to be neglecting a total repeal of ObamaCare and not building the wall, both which Congress must help him with because these are actual legislative issues.
2. Trump trashes the Iran Deal, as he should have, and the media is NOT happy and neither is President Obama
— The president followed through on his promise to kill the Iran Deal, to which Iran responded by saying they would enrich more uranium than ever and France said they will work on a broader deal.
— President Obama and his allies can pout all they want about one of their “achievements” going away, but they never got it ratified and because of that, Trump can end it.
3. Gov. Kay Ivey’s school safety report is out and it is as worthless as you would think it would be
— After the Parkland, Florida, shooting the governor of Alabama wanted a committee to offer ideas instead of supporting actual changes to makes schools safer.
— The report has found the obvious, that we should have more school resource officers and make the buildings more difficult targets, but it sidesteps the issue of allowing teachers to carry.
4. Gov. Kay Ivey keeps playing rope-a-dope with her opponents; debate and medical record attacks don’t work
— Another day, another GOP candidate lets you know how healthy he is – this time it is Scott Dawson.
— Gov. Ivey has made it clear she doesn’t care, and continues to tell her opponents that if they have an allegation about her health, they “ought to come out and just plum say it.”
5. Primary elections get results that should make those concerned about “fringe” GOP candidates happy, but it doesn’t matter
— West Virginia’s coal baron felon America person Don Blakenship comes in 3rd in the GOP primary, sending the media searching for the next Roy Moore or Todd Akin.
— The fretting for the “future of the GOP” now moves to Arizona where Sheriff Joe Apario and State Senator Kelli Ward represent the media’s boogeymen against a more established Rep. Martha McSally.
6. Democrat candidate for Governor Sue Bell Cobb is employing a registered sex offender to go door-to-door for votes
— #MeToo seems like a go to issues for a female candidate who also was a Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, but Cobb has a man working the streets for her that served 30 years in jail for rape by forcible compulsion, sodomy I and robbery I.
— Cobb’s campaign defends the hiring of this employee by saying he should be forgiven for his crimes, and asking have you ever made a mistake? Once you have atoned for that mistake, do you believe in forgiveness? The man also worked for Mayor Woodfin and Senator Jones as well.
7. Apparently New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s abusive lifestyle was an “open secret“
— Just like with Roy Moore, the minute the allegations started flowing about former AG Schneiderman about sexual misconduct, people claim they knew all along and did nothing about it.
— Allegations of a hit-and-run, drug use, bribery and heavy drinking were all part of the story of this politician that politicos and journalists excused because as one of his victim’s friends stated, he was “was too valuable a politician for the Democrats to lose.”
