2:01 am
the race for the. chief. so we're not just about four hours americans go to the polls for what critical elections with the country divided over the ministration and the democrats desperate to wrest control of congress from the republicans painting.
2:02 am
you cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for and use the. angry left wing mob and that's what the democrats are but. two words are going to define the night of the two thousand and eighteen election one which kavanagh and the other is caravan supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh brett kavanaugh witches that are placing a hat on brett kavanaugh caravan invasion or about the caravan caravan. and a series of suspicious packages sent across the country mail by mail bombs fire alarm here will keep you posted on that. believe me over. the last.
2:03 am
midterm elections in the us are held every four years half way through the presidential americans choose a long list of officials including all four hundred thirty five members of the house of representatives thirty five seats in the senate and thirty six state governors but this time around it's all about one man who's not even on the ballot . reports. usually the midterm elections in the united states are about as exciting as watching the grass grow low public interest and low voter turnout and the ads have a very amateurish quality to them. for the agenda a vague and. then mr trump said you're right.
2:04 am
that part. so why is the biennial snooze fest suddenly turned into a political extravaganza well it's apparently about one man i'm not on the ticket but i am on the ticket because this is also a referendum about me so let's go over what's at stake. the big one is impeachment if the pollsters are to be believed the democrats could regain control of the u.s. house of representatives with a majority they could then gain the ability to bring formal charges against the president impeachment has been on the minds of some democrats that he is impeachable the democrats want to retake control of the house so they could move to impeach the president telling me it impeachment you think that trump should be impeached i would vote yes you would have to take
2:05 am
a vote i would vote. now the democrats could get the ball rolling with the u.s. house but whether or not they'd be successful is a different story let's remember no president in all of us history has ever been removed through the impeachment process richard nixon came close but he actually resigned before the senate could put him on trial but impeachment fears aside a blue wave could put the brakes on the presidency. so trumps policies that's what's really at stake here if the democrats regain control of the house they could block and delay the donald's plans he can kiss that big beautiful power. wall goodbye plus if the house goes democrat but the senate remains republican we're going to have some good old fashioned washington gridlock two words for you government shutdown.
2:06 am
in the case of a democratic surge we can expect an onslaught of investigations into the trumpet ministration with the house majority the democrats could subpoena witnesses and get their hands on key documents this means that all things from business transactions to furniture purchases and sexual assault allegations all of that could come under scrutiny so we are going to have oversight committee hearings on their presence use of the cell phone the democrats take over the house then he's going to be subpoenaed and investigated to do we want to see the truth now results are hard to predict but one pattern from the post twenty sixteen world seems to be playing out pretty well at the polls americans get to choose between chaos and more chaos cable mup and artsy washington d.c. . all the while some u.s. officials have been raising the alarm of a possible foreign interference in the midst of the trump administration has accused china russia and now even iran of meddling in the road in the

2:08 am
a whole new army try to sell any kind of mayhem or a disk or if they can just openly and publicly shames these election tallies and spread false information here in the us if it wasn't for the meddling madness comedians would have had to work on finding inspiration do you think the russians will meddle in the two thousand and eight elections the offer was made and we've accepted. their russian so they were all messed up inside one b. . if it wasn't for the meddling madness politicians wouldn't have had the chance to prove they got the guts to stand up to like the senator from missouri whose reelection attempts apparently made her a target for russian scheming. i will not be intimidated i said it before and i will say to get put in and don't believe me go bomb a someone who is no longer bothered by putin now that he's out of the game or is he
2:09 am

w. bush said well we will rebuild new york from the pentagon but we're not going to worry about it well at a certain point that's what this is turning into if we're going to talk about the real meddling issues this year the real trouble is totally off your radar regrettably we've found that china has been attempting to interfere in our upcoming twenty eight. election against my administration what the russians are doing pales in comparison to what china is doing across this country although you do know words and proof or not the same thing come on we haven't even heard exactly what the chinese meddling masters have been up to but that didn't stop some republicans from doubling down on their china bashing campaign run china study history and they started a long time ago that systematically weaponized the free trade system really.

2:17 am
the warnings the governments did know and there's a link between the rises in crime the levels of violent crime on our streets and the number of police offices for the very simple reason that they know that if there is a link established they will be held responsible they are responsible the whole thing is a total shambles and it will take at least ten years if not longer to back out if we start to morrow and they've given no indication of stuff since o'meara. are plenty more stories to come here when our international a base a few well what have we are back just. this is neo. all countries competing with all countries globalization no more central bank domination no more on national monetary fund world bank united nations

leader of the christian democratic union a just sling for position so let's have a look at who the front runners are. the c.d.u. is the start it's not about which single person is shining within the city but the party as a whole has to shine. on a greater. abbreviated to just a k.k.k. is the current general secretary of the christian democratic union party and frequently talked about as angela merkel's chosen one a default catholic she is culturally conservative opposed to gay marriage and to abortion however when it comes to migration she's on side with angela merkel's policy saying that they are in step with her religious beliefs she's also on side with angela merkel's policies internationally skeptical when it comes to russia but very keen on e.u. cooperation same old same old big problem a.k.k. could be though the people got sick of the same old same old and that's the very
2:24 am
reason that i'm glad merkel's job is up for grabs. spahn is a completely different story however the thirty eight year old health minister seems to hate everything mrs merkel stands for her migration policy is the white elephant in the room according to mr spann he opposes limited dual citizenship for young foreigners criticized attempts to loosen laws on advertising abortions and called for banning the book or in public he is liked by the right wing conservative element in the party to an extent his homosexuality and marriage to his long term partner last year thought to count against him with traditionalists though when it comes to international affairs he's seen as more nationalistic and some even speculate he's the one most likely to get on with u.s. president donald trump it is now do. you think this club intend to keep. making up the triumvirate of front runners is

a blast from the c.d.u. past frederick metz was part of a group opposed to anglo-american becoming leader back in two thousand and two they viewed the twenty first century's iron chancellor as just helmut kohl's girl from the east merkel defeated him and then ousted him from party leadership cd you need progressive political discussion and in my opinion this means the c.d.u. needs to get things straight about its image fiscally conservative he once famously wanted to digest germany's labrinth fine tax laws so they would fit on a big popular with traditionalists when it comes to international matters he's very much in favor of e.u. ever expanding union and after the greece debt debacle that's not so hot with the old guard when it comes to germany's place on the international stage it's very clear. european trends atlanticist.

cosmopolitan germany. and the european. enlightenment who's most important political allies of the democracies. with whoever gets the job being set up is the logical successor to one glimmer as chancellor how do those candidates fare. we have two competing models here one of them is represented by two alpha males who are clearly quite conservative compared to most of their ambitious and power hungry up against me is in some ways another merkel like figure who continue with her line will be a hard sell though who wins will have less to do with which side of the political spectrum the candidate comes from a more to do with her personality and drive to fill the position the papers here are suggesting that could be as many as twelve hats in the ring for the top job at the c.d.u. however the smart money is going on the eventual leader of the party be one of those three front runners we just talked about the c.d.u. will elect their new leader at their party conference at the beginning of the september and whoever gets that job well they're going to be charged with leading

readings and salutation is one of the main rules laid forth in the universal golden rule book of capitalism is that you get what you pay for the idea being that the more you pay the better the product and converse leave you know the less you can converse leave the less you pay the lower quality of product and more likely to cause problems or breakdowns or whatever now normally that rule stays genuinely true unless of course we're talking about the us government and defense contractors like case and point the thirteen billion dollars us as gerald ford super carrier which paralegal was delivered last year with some pretty major shall we say issues bloom.
