Mr. Trump/Mr Sanders( 6. GDP, not 6.9)

I felt this way several times before, but I think I’m seeing fewer articles about President Trump online. But sadly that does not mean objective reports about his policies and supporters will ensue. Now it seems he’s being replaced by Bernie Sanders articles from both liberal and conservative commentators; everyone seems to be championing or at least defending Sanders the socialist against his not so socialist challengers.

Maybe journalists know that media consumers won’t consume critiques of Mr. Trump’s spending enormous public debt to fund military equipment for the very Generals he’s been criticizing, or why America’s 2.1 GDP is as impressive as China’s new low of 6., or that great wealth and power are still available to individuals like Huawei  in communist/socialist China and that socialist Sanders has a lot more money and influence than most North Americans.

Reaction to an Online Retailer Buying a Newspaper

When newspapers first appeared about the age of Victoria the literate wrote that papers would dilute literacy. Marshall McLuhan mid twentieth century media critic foresaw newspapers extending the technological reach of advertisers who would eventually pay people to buy papers to extend their reach . Today newspapers have Online circulation, but frequently some of those Online reports seem identical regardless of the newspaper publisher’s name. And too often those identical reports on world events bear the Reuters & Associated Press labels nullifying any chance that these old newspaper publications are providing varied opinions of these important happenings. And in order to read these globally diluted opinions we must persevere through the blitz of advertising that might have been dismissed in papers by turning a page or looking askance. Online news also demands much greater reader awareness of what one needs to know  and eliminates the possibility that important, less reported events might turn up hidden in the centre of a paper fold. Even paid subscriptions for Online news requires resisting distractions of advertising imagery and: the, where did it go ? I thought I saw it earlier, maybe yesterday, or was it last week  electronic confusion.

“Whose Fair Share” look out Warren!

This old 2012 post came to mind when today I heard Michael Bloomberg is again  thinking of entering the Democrat Primaries against Ms. Warren who’d certainly like the former mayor to pay his  fair share.

I once published a piece that I titled “Money meets money; money wins.” about how the winner of millionaire investor, Governor Romney’s and millionaire supported President Obama’s competition for president will be lots of money. The most recent confirmation of this crazy notion is (once a Democrat now a Republican) wealthy Mayor Bloomberg’s recent endorsement of Mr. Obama’s candidacy. Now way back on October 20, 2012 I think I was being prepared for this endorsement by a New York Times article entitled “Ever Bipartisan, Bloomberg Jabs Both Candidates” in which I read Mr. Bloomberg’s criticism of the President: ” ‘This business of ‘Well, they can afford it; they should pay their fair share?’ Who are you to say ‘Somebody else’s fair share?’ “and his admonishment of Romney” I do think that Romney’s business experience would be valuable, but I don’t know that running Bain Capital gives you the experience to run the country.”But less than two weeks and one hurricane later Mayor Bloomberg announces his support for Mr. Obama because he feels that Hurricane Sandy may be evidence of global warming which Mr. Obama is better equipped to manage than Mr. Romney, and not Mr. Obama’s most repeated rhetoric since he took office in 2008/09, which is that the rich should pay more in taxes (their “fair share”).

Something got left out.

“…Trump repeated his contention that Biden is the one who should be investigated. The president and his allies have accused Biden of pressuring Ukraine in 2016 to fire its top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, to benefit his son.

Hunter Biden served for nearly five years on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian natural gas company, whose owner came under scrutiny by Ukrainian prosecutors for possible abuse of power and unlawful enrichment. Hunter Biden was not accused of any wrongdoing in the investigation. At the time that then-vice president Joe Biden sought the ouster of the top Ukrainian prosecutor, who Biden and other Western officials said was not sufficiently pursuing corruption cases, the investigation into Burisma was dormant, according to former Ukrainian and U.S. officials…”(MSN: Washington Post) 4hours ago

Here’s what got left out from Solomon’s April 1,2019 report in The Hill:

‘…U.S. banking records show Hunter Biden’s American-based firm, Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC, received regular transfers into one of its accounts — usually more than $166,000 a month — from Burisma from spring 2014 through fall 2015, during a period when Vice President Biden was the main U.S. official dealing with Ukraine and its tense relations with Russia.

The general prosecutor’s official file for the Burisma probe — shared with me by senior Ukrainian officials — shows prosecutors identified Hunter Biden, business partner Devon Archer and their firm, Rosemont Seneca, as potential recipients of money.

Shokin told me in written answers to questions that, before he was fired as general prosecutor, he had made “specific plans” for the investigation that “included interrogations and other crime-investigation procedures into all members of the executive board, including Hunter Biden.”…’
