John Bailey, White Plains CitizeNetReporter (WPCNR.com) Publisher / Editor opens the broadcast day at 10am, concluding at 10:30am.
- Unfamiliar with Mary Ann Keenan, a fifty-seven-year White Plains resident and a fixture in local and New York State politics for decades, passed away peacefully at home on September 29, 2019. She was 91 years old. Most compelling about her twenty-six years contribution as a White Plains Common Councilmember was not how long she served but how fiercely principled she was during her tenure. We celebrate “principled”politicians and question when the concept “allegedly” exited discourse and governance alike. Was she an anomaly when she served in political office or was it at one time commonplace? If so, when did our elected officials veer from that demeanor? Is her ethical and bipartisan political conduct now considered passé? Does society espouse a longing for the likes of Ms. Keenan yet elect people who exhibit an ethical deficiency upon election to office? Does the electorate, in the majority, recognize their collective deficiency or are they unaware of the “missing” conduct for which we long, yet do not know how to resuscitate its long lost conduct? Or does the political demeanor she held dear to her heart and mind irretrievably lost to a historical archive that is unknown to our progeny and unlikely to be found from its archival home?
- Will society engage in an introspective of the waning past and the burgeoning future? Doe voters recognize the divide? re we learning how to traverse the future by our present conduct? Are people being served? If so, how? If not, why not?

- Last week, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) suffered a heart attack. Doctors inserted two stents into his heart. He was released after surgery. His campaign has advised he will take a short hiatus from the campaign trail. Will this seemingly commonplace issue undermine or even scuttle his prospects for president.
- Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD), Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot L. Engel (D-NY) are taking the lead with respect to the impeachment of President Trump should the president not comply with a subpoena to the White House documents regarding POTUS’ dealings with Ukraine, and inquiry of former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden.
- Has former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani become a detriment to Pres. Donald Trump? Will he be soon hear the command, “Your fired!”
- The Logan Act is a United States federal law that criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized persons with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States. Can the Logan Act be considered against Rudy Giuliani? The intent behind the Act is to prevent unauthorized negotiations from undermining the government’s position. The Act was passed following George Logan’s unauthorized negotiations with France in 1798, and was signed into law by President John Adams on January 30, 1799. The Act was amended in 1994, changing the penalty for violation from “fined $5,000” to “fined under this title”; this appears to be the only amendment to the Act. Violation of the Logan Act is a felony. Has anyone suffered penalty under this act?
- Has POTUS doubled down by asking China’s Xi Jinping to look into Hunter Biden?
- Does anyone know who the “whistleblower” is? Does learning his/her name eclipse the integrity, credibility, and verifiability of the facts and law?
