National / International political analyst Michael Edelman, Esq., opens the broadcast day by delving into the following concerns:
- The Washington Post-Schar School poll revealed that Americans are split over whether House Democrats should continue to investigate President Trump after special counsel Robert S. Mueller III made no determination about whether he attempted to obstruct justice during the inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Can it be said that the poll is presumptuous because the Mueller findings have brought about inquiry from other office boulders such as the office of New York State Attorney General Trish James. Is further inquiry legitimate or more of the drama that divides Dems and GOPers?
- A key aspect of the Electoral College, one that is reinforced By Alexander Hamilton throughout the Federalist Papers essay, is that it should be independent of the forces that might influence or corrupt the general population. The founders understood the importance of the Presidency to the country and to the world, and they wanted to ensure that only the most competent and trustworthy individual would be selected. Is the Electoral College an aberration or pertinent today?
- The White House is determined to close the U.S.-Mexico border. Acting Chief if Staff Mick Mulvaney advises it would take “something dramatic” for the President not to close the border which would also seriously impede trade. What is Trump’s rationale and will its ramification lead to trade issues that will be deleterious to the U.S. over the long haul?
- Trump is planning to cut U.S. aid to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras over a surge of irregular migrations and asylum seekers. Will this conduct drive more people to the border? Will it permit Cuba, Russia, China, and Iran expand their influence in Central and South America as they already have in Venezuela?
- What course does the U.S. have now that Russia refuses to assist Maduro’s capacity to stay in power. has Venezuela graduated from a military confrontation to a political one? Why is Venezuela important to America’s standing?
- Comedian Volodymmyr Zelensky will face off against incumbent Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko inform exit polls in a future run-off race where Zelensky is ahead. Elections will take place Sunday.
- Secretary Education Betsy DeVos sat before a subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee to defend slashing $18 million from Special Olympics funding, as well as other significant cuts to other special-needs education funds. And then, President Trump changed his mind and publicly turned on his education secretary to promise that the Special Olympics budget would not be slashed. He left DeVos hanging in the wind. Does POTUS believe he is earning kudos from the public regarding such undermining and embarrassing conduct? This segment from 10-10:30am.
