It was a busy weekend on the national political scene from Mike Pence to Harvey Weinstein to The Little Sisters of the Poor and everything in between.
MIKE PENCE: They’re calling it “a stunt” that Mike Pence walked out. They’re trying to say he went to the game after being in Vegas, but the trip had been long planned. Suddenly they all care about the costs of travel. Nobody seems to question the travel that went on during the Obama years on government funded planes.
BROCK LONG AND FEMA: FEMA Director Brock Long appeared on the Sunday shows this weekend. He was once again criticized over Puerto Rico. He quickly dismissed the nonsense from the mayor of San Juan who clearly has an Anti-Trump Agenda.
NORTH KOREA: President Trump set the media off Friday and throughout the weekend for his “calm before the storm” comment,” regarding his policy on North Korea.
HARVEY WEINSTEIN: The Left is finally acknowledging the scandal that surrounds Hollywood Mega-Producer Harvey Weinstein. However, they’ve also found a way to make it about Donald Trump.
BIRTH CONTROL REQUIREMENT: President Trump is ending the ACA requirement for private businesses to provide free healthcare.
IMMIGRATION: Trump releases his new 70 point immigration plan. The goal is to end chain migration, increase border security, and the amnesty for unaccompanied minors.
BOB CORKER: The very wealthy Bob Corker somehow made lots of money during the financial crisis that crippled the rest of the country. July 11, spent between $1-$5 on the McGowan Investment just before Wells Fargo turned into a major profit. Wells Fargo bailed Corker out.
Senator David Perdue Comments On President Trump’s United Nations Address
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, comments on President Trump’s address at the United Nation’s General Assembly meeting:
“American leadership is needed now, more than ever. The world is more dangerous than any time in my lifetime, and I am glad to see President Trump and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley aggressively taking on these challenges at the United Nations to get better results. President Trump was very clear that improving accountability and effectiveness at the United Nations is a top priority. For too long, the UN’s budget process has lacked transparency, and the organization has relied too heavily on U.S. contributions. President Trump sent the message that all sovereign nations must come together in a united effort to counter North Korea’s reckless behavior and the growing threats from Iran’s continued support of terrorist groups and human rights abuses.”
Dr. Whaley always comes to tell us the latest in health, ask our viewer questions and talk politics with BKP on Fridays. Today they discussed politics, the President’s speech in Poland, concussions, and our viewer questions. This week’s viewer questions were:
1) What is an ocular migraine? Is it a sign of something serious?
2) If olive oil is high in fat, why is it considered healthy?
3) Are nail ridges in fingernails cause for concern?
We would like to thank the Georgia Cancer Specialist for sponsoring this segment.
Watch the non-nuclear ‘mother of all bombs’ in slow motion as it bombed Nangarhar, Afghanistan. President Donald J. Trump decided to strike ISIS at a critical source. Exactly how powerful was this bomb?
And looking into the strange background of North Korean Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-Un, nicknamed, Kim Jong-Boom-Boom. What is he up to? Trouble as usual…
Do you remember in the 90’s when former President Bill Clinton announced that the United States. had reached an agreement with North Korea to freeze and dismantle their nuclear weapons program? Do you remember when he told us that this agreement would be good for the U.S. and the entire world? Do you remember when he said North Korea would now fully join the world of peaceful nations? Well… How did that work out?
Do you remember when George W. Bush declared North Korea part of the axis of evil and he said “The United States of America will not permit the world’s most dangerous regimes to threaten us with the world’s most destructive weapons.” North Korea considered Bushes words just short of declaring war.
Do you remember in 2009 when North Korean soldiers detained two American journalist that had crossed over into North Korea from China without a visa? North Korea agreed to the release of the two journalist but only if Former President Bill Clinton would come personally to meet with Kim Jong-il. Three Presidents, three failed attempts to solve the North Korean crisis.
The Trump Administration has warned Kim Jong-un not to launch anymore test ICBMs. Ignoring the United States’ warnings North Korea had a failed attempt Saturday to launch a missile, which exploded on the pad. North Korea showcased their ICBMs during their founders day parade on Saturday. These ICBMs fitted with nuclear warheads could reach Seoul South Korea, Tokyo Japan, and maybe even the west coast of The United States. I feel sure Secretary of Defence, James “Mad-Dog” Mattis, will bring this North Korean nightmare to an end. Which Clinton, Bush and Obama failed to do.
In this segment we also cover the media trying to figure out “the real Donald Trump.” BKP gives his opinion as to why Trump changed his position on China being a currency manipulator and and NATO no longer being obsolete.
Why did the decision to bomb Syria change everything for some Donald Trump loyalist? Many of Trump’s supporters are asking where is the “America First” policy now? In the opening monologue today, #BKP discusses how foreign policy decisions that President Donald Trump has made does not change his domestic policy agenda.
Trump is negotiating at all times whether it be a meeting with the President of China or a CEO summit at The White House. During the campaign, candidate Donald Trump talked about our trade deficit with China along with them devaluing their money. Trump is the first president that had the nerve to tie North Korea and trade together only using 130 characters, called Twitter. #BKP ties together today all the reasons you should not jump off the “Trump Train”. Going from one meeting to the next Trump works 14 – 16 hours a day. He is not just another scenic railroad like Obama; He is a bullet train Trump. So don’t jump now because you could get hurt.
Watch part two of this segment below.
The world is waiting to hear the details from meetings between U.S. Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson and his Russian counterpart, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. Last week President Bashar al-Assad launched a chemical attack on his own people. President Donald Trump responded swiftly by sending 59 tomahawk missiles to hit the air base that Assad used to launch the chemical attack. Russia has troops and military equipment stationed on the airfield hit by the tomahawk missiles.
This obviously has escalated tensions between the two countries than the Cold War era. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called the strike on Syria an aggressive act against a sovereign state and violated International Law. Russia and Iran along with other Syrian allies vowed to retaliate against any further strike against Syria. Although Russia denied any knowledge of the gas attack; U.S. Intelligence claims Russia was aware of Assad’s intentions to use chemical weapons.
Recent comments from U.S. UN Secretary, Nikki Haley followed up by Rex Tillerson, leaves many to wonder if The Trump Administration just retaliated for the gas attack or is planning regime change. Tillerson, before leaving to meet Lavrov, made several statements that may lead many to believe that regime change is the only option that Trump will accept.
“It is clear to all of us that the reign of the Assad family is coming to an end,”
“But the question of how that ends and the transition itself could be very important in our view to the durability, the stability inside of a unified Syria.”
“That’s why we are not presupposing how that occurs,”
“We want to relieve the suffering of the Syrian people. Russia can be a part of that future and play an important role,”
“Or Russia can maintain its alliance with this group, which we believe is not going to serve Russia’s interests longer term.”
Tillerson’s quotes obviously state Assad needs to leave along with what I would perceive as an ultimatum for Russia.
Also in our opening monologue today we discuss the tension with North Korea. While we wait to see how China will respond the U.S. is sending the USS Aircraft Carrier Carl Vinson toward the Korean peninsula. Trump has no other choice but to handle this situation considering North Korea’s threats of nuclear attack on America’s western cities.
In Friday’s Opening Monologue #BKP talks about the difference in the response concerning Syria using chemical weapons of President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump. In one air strike did Donald Trump return the U.S. to it’s World Leader Status and put ISIS, North Korea, Russia, and China on notice. The American superpower is back!
In this segment we discuss the 24 years of failed North Korean policy by highlighting three Presidents and six Secretary of States. President Bill Clinton – Secretary of State Christopher Warren and Madeleine Albright. President George W. Bush – Secretary of State Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice. President Barack Obama – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and John Kerry.
North Korea continues to test fire ballistic missiles that they claim can cary a nuclear war head to the West coast of the United States. Now President Donald Trump is left with a 24 year disaster that he will likely have to deal with within the first 100 days of his Presidency.
