Pelosi argued for the Senate to join the Congress to meet the needs of the nation’s citizenry emphasizing that “people are hungry across America” and “people are jobless across America.” Will a rapprochement between Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell?
- Has POTUS’ leadership waned because he and his hand-chosen team have saddled their fortune to the stock market? Is it fathomable that the stock market can surge under the growing list os bankruptcies in retail, and in manufacturing, and the continuing assaults against China.
- Are American forces being driven out of Afghanistan and Iraq?
- Horrendous job reports are anticipated. Will the unemployment figures cajole Washington, the Senate. The Congress, and/ or the Federal Reserve? If so, what is the best outcome?
- U.S. Attorney General William P. Barr is discrediting the work done by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III. Last Thursday, Barr decided the Justice Department would ask a judge to erase the guilty plea of Michael Flynn and dismiss the case against the former national security adviser. Analysts analysts say Barr’s conduct is part of a pattern of his personally intervening in special counsel cases involving the president’s allies, over the apparent objection of the career prosecutors assigned to the matters.
- Republicans are seemingly growing nervous about losing the Senate amid worries over Trump’s handling of the pandemic. Can they embellish their majority, or hold on to it? Do the have an opportunity to maintain their lead in Congress and gain a majority in the Senate? If so, what will that require?
Shawn Patterson-Howard, Mount Vernon Mayor, speaks to the upheaval the COVID-19 pandemic has imposed on the city. Nothing is as we believed it to be. personal interactions are non-existent, Zoom is in. No longer a 9-5 plus work day; at issue is not when she works, but whether she ever gets to sleep. The crisis is dire, the need great, mental capacity frayed at the edges, and anxiety has come to roost. We learn the true gift of governance as expressed from the helm by Mount Vernon Mayor Patterson Howard sharing some coping skills that have sustained her. From 11am-12Noon.
