On Thursday Michael Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell appeared with Maria Bartiromo to provide insight into the DC Circuit Appellate court ordering the dismissal of the Flynn case. One of the key points Ms. Powell draws attention to is that her client was targeted. Within that targeting there’s a criminal conspiracy.

Representative Devin Nunes on Thursday evening appeared for a short interview with Martha MacCallum to discuss the latest information in/around the background investigation of the Michael Flynn case.

On Thursday our President and FLOTUS attended a Wreath Laying Ceremony at the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War and remember the brave American soldiers who selflessly sacrificed their lives in the fight for peace.

Attending with the President and First Lady were Secretary David Bernhardt, Department of the Interior; Secretary Robert Wilkie, Department of Veteran Affairs; and Ambassador Lee Soo Hyuck, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to the United States

Here are some shorter video clips and pictures from the ceremony:

From the article linked above:

President Trump and Melania Trump on Thursday visited the Korean War Memorial in Washington to mark the 70th anniversary of the start of the conflict that divided the Asian peninsula, with the U.S. backing the south.

Mr. Trump and the first lady stood in quiet reflection before laying their hands on a pre-positioned wreath at the National Mall site.

The president saluted and Mrs. Trump placed her hand on her heart as a military trumpeter played “Taps.” The first couple then greeted elderly veterans on hand for the ceremony.

On Thursday our President toured Fincantieri Marine shipyard and delivered remarks about the historic $5 billion dollar contract the Administration recently granted Fincantieri Marinette Marine. This is the first visit by a sitting President to the city of Marinette, Wisconsin.

The Trump Administration’s contract to build up to ten new guided missile frigates worth nearly $5.5 billion, will secure the future of the shipyard. Fincantieri plans to invest $130 million in upgrades to the facility, add approximately 1,000 jobs and projects that the investment will create 15,000 additional jobs in the Wisconsin and Michigan supply chains.

U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr sat down for a discussion with Texas Senator Ted Cruz for the Verdict podcast. AG Barr discussed the recent riots and the ongoing effort to prosecute those engaging in violence and destruction of property.

Additionally, AG Barr also discussed the Big Tech censorship issue in combination with ongoing anti-trust investigations that will reach his desk for decision this summer.

From the article linked above:

Since late May and early June, violence has erupted in leftist cities around the country and the Department of Justice has wasted no time indicting and arresting violent rioters. 

During our President’s visit to Wisconsin on Thursday, he sat down for a town hall event with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

Another big immigration win at the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court ruled 7-2 on Thursday (pdf here) that asylum seekers have no right to a hearing when their claim is denied and their deportation is in accordance with the law. This is a major win for the Department of Homeland Security, immigration and border controls.

From the article linked above:

The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that asylum seekers who are turned down by immigration officials do not have a right to make their case to a judge, a win for the Trump administration and its desire to quickly deport people who enter the United States illegally.

The ruling was 7 to 2, although the usual undercurrents of an ideological divide on the court were present. Two of the court’s liberals dissented, and the other two agreed only with the outcome in the specific case.

Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., writing for the majority, rejected a lower court’s ruling that the Constitution guarantees a “meaningful opportunity” for asylum seekers to make their case to a judge if they are turned down in an initial screening.

Alito said the system set up by Congress weeds out “patently meritless claims” and provides for quickly removing those making them. Most pass their initial screenings, he noted, but those who do not have no additional recourse.

The most recent polls are completely comical! They are trying to convince Americans that our President is losing badly and want change.

Here is the only data that matters to me. This is their worse nightmare!

From the article linked above:

Gun retailers say business is booming in the aftermath of protests and riots related to the death of George Floyd, a development they attribute directly to a push by some left-wing activists to slash taxpayer funding for police departments.

The increase in the number of U.S. citizens submitting background checks for approval to arm themselves began in March, amid fears of a possible breakdown in social order generated by the coronavirus. The trend has continued into late June, with the civil unrest roiling American cities and concern about proposals to neuter local law enforcement, leading to record numbers of firearms purchases.

“Anything that can cause people to feel unsafe in relation to possible physical crime to self, others and property can drive firearm sales,” gun industry analyst Rob Southwick told CNN Business, which first reported the news.

Added Mark Oliva, a spokesman for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, “You’re seeing a reaction to people’s concerns about being able to provide safety for themselves and the ones that they love.”

[…] The group estimates that 40% of guns sold in May were to first-time buyers, information it bases on a survey of firearms retailers.

“We’ve gotten a lot of new customers,” said Jillian Biltz, owner of gun store Mad Dog Armory in Largo, Florida, in an interview with CNN Business. “The protests started happening, and then people just started getting nervous.”

There is NO enthusiasm for SleepyCreepy Joe! Checkout these numbers for his speech in Pennsylvania on Thursday:

They are trying to gaslight Americans with their BS polls.

From the article linked above:

The “Hannity” town hall featuring President Trump was the most-watched hour of television across both broadcast and cable networks.

The sitdown between the president and Fox News host Sean Hannity drew a whopping 5.1 million viewers on Thursday night, which beat MSNBC and CNN combined during that same 9 p.m. time slot according to final Nielsen data. MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” drew just 3.1 million viewers while and CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” drew a measly 1.8 million viewers.

[…] The town hall event, which took place in the swing state of Wisconsin, drew more viewers than the entire primetime lineups on ABC, CBS and NBC. The most-watched programs on broadcast television on Thursday night were CBS’ encore airing of “Young Sheldon,” which drew 4.8 million viewers, and ABC’s “Holey Moley” with 3.8 million viewers, both during the 8 p.m. time slot.

The Economic Train is ready to takeoff in a way that hasn’t been seen before. Americans have saved quite a bit of money and are ready to start spending.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross appeared on Fox News with Stuart Varney on Friday. Within the interview Ross notes some key economic data that has a very solid predictor value for economic growth.

Both the spending rates and the savings rates for Americans are at all time highs.  The COVID-19 lockdown has limited purchase options, leading to less initial spending; however, consumers have a lot of recent cash reserve as shown in their rate of savings.

Ross is right, within this dynamic, as soon as economic limits are removed, the spending will boost the economy very quickly.

One thing they aren’t going to spend on is Nike products. When you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes. Nike went all in last year on Colin Kaepernick and Black Lives Matter.

In their latest financial results Nike is reporting a net quarterly loss of $790 million…. Their year-over-year sales are down 38%, which tells me that the downward spiral has been happening for a lot longer than a single quarter.

Most financial analysts (so called experts) in the industry were looking for a profit target around seven cents per share. The result Nike reported was a loss of 51 cents per share. That is a 58 cent difference.

From the article linked above:

Here’s how Nike did during its fiscal fourth quarter: 

  • Loss per share: 51 cents 
  • Revenue: $6.31 billion 

Nike reported a loss of $790 million, or 51 cents per share, during the period ended May 31, compared with net income of $989 million, or earnings of 62 cents a share, a year ago. 

Total revenue was down 38% to $6.31 billion from $10.18 billion a year ago. Sales in North America were down 46%

Nike purposefully cut-out half the population of their largest market in order to virtue signal to their leftist peers. Consequences from those painfully stupid -and brutally political- mistakes cannot be avoided forever. That’s what we are now seeing with Nike shares and profits.

Yesterday our President signed an Executive Order (see link below) requiring Federal agencies to focus hiring on the skills job seekers possess rather than focusing on whether they earned a college degree.

The order requires Federal agencies to revise and update outdated Federal job qualification standards and candidate assessments, improving the quality and competency of the civil service.

The order implements best practices already adopted by private sector leaders to promote equity and inclusion.  As a result of this reform, talented individuals with apprenticeships, technical training, and apt backgrounds will have greater opportunity to pursue careers in the Federal civil service.

From the article linked above:

[…] The White House isn’t eliminating degree requirements altogether but instead will stress skills in jobs where having a degree is less important.

Aides say the change will create more opportunities for Americans to work for the federal government by recognizing that some learning happens outside of classrooms.

Ivanka Trump and other administration officials have pushed to increase opportunities for apprenticeships and have promoted such training and vocational education as alternatives to traditional two-year or four-year college degree programs.

The Office of Personnel Management will be responsible for implementing the president’s order.

IBM is among the companies that have moved in this direction. Last year, 15% of its new U.S. hires had nontraditional backgrounds because they were evaluated based on skills instead of looking only at their degrees, Ginni Rometty, the company’s executive chairman, said via the White House.

Our President last night signed an Executive Order protecting American Monuments, Memorials and Statues.

You can find the Executive Order in the link below:

Here is an excellent thread that explains the Executive Order:

On Thursday AG Barr mentioned in an interview with Senator Ted Cruz that he was likely to have the final DOJ investigation on his desk for a decision within the next few months.

Yesterday Politico is reporting on some of the background DOJ activity which aligns with Bill Barr’s statements.

From the article linked above:

Justice Department prosecutors expect to file an antitrust lawsuit against Google in the coming months focused on the company’s dominance in online advertising and search, two individuals familiar with the discussions said Friday.

DOJ lawyers and state antitrust officials met online Friday and discussed contours of the expected complaint, according to the people, who weren’t authorized to speak on the record because the investigation is ongoing.

[…] The suit is expected to involve allegations that the search giant has monopolized the advertising technology market. It is also expected to include allegations that Google has taken steps to extend its monopoly over search, such as through contracts with Apple and cellphone makers who use the Android operating system that require it be the default search engine.

The people cautioned that Attorney General William Barr, who did not attend the meeting, has yet to make a final decision on whether to sue, a judgment he could make in the coming weeks. The department would also need to decide what remedy it would seek, such as trying to break up the company or placing limits on its behavior. Whether the state attorneys general would also sign on to the DOJ complaint isn’t yet determined.

Prosecutors are still discussing whether to include other aspects of Google’s conduct related to search, the people said.

A DOJ spokesperson declined to comment.
