“Right Jab And Left Jab” was created because we have two commenters that post on a daily basis either in our “IS IT TRUE” or “Readers Forum” columns concerning National or International issues.
Joe Biden and Ronald Reagan’s comments are mostly about issues of national interest.  The majority of our “IS IT TRUE” columns are about local or state issues, so we have decided to give Mr. Biden and Mr. Reagan exclusive access to our newly created “LEFT JAB and RIGHT JAB”  column. They now have this post to exclusively discuss national or world issues that they feel passionate about.
We shall be posting the “LEFT JAB” AND “RIGHT JAB” several times a week.  Oh, “Left Jab” is a liberal view and the “Right Jab is representative of the more conservative views. Also, any reader who would like to react to the written comments of the two gentlemen is free to do so.

  1. If Bernie and Wes and the rest are such fragile snowflakes, JethroBodine can probably give you a referral for yoga or something (not that it has ever helped Twittler), but maybe y’all need to grow a pair if my posting of the TRUTH is more than you can handle

    Day 866: False Light

    1/ The White House directed Hope Hicks not to cooperate with a House Judiciary Committee subpoena for documents related to her White House service. The White House also instructed Annie Donaldson, the former deputy White House counsel, not to turn over the documents. Rep. Jerrold Nadler said the documents are no longer covered by executive privilege “if they ever were” and that the White House’s move was “part of President Trump’s continued obstruction of Congress.” Hicks, however, said she will hand over documents related to Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. (CNN / Washington Post / CNBC / NBC News / Politico)

    2/ The Justice Department agreed to reopen negotiations with the House Judiciary Committee for Robert Mueller’s full, unredacted report if the House removes its threat to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt next week. In a letter to committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, the Department said it would only “resume negotiations” if the committee reversed its previous recommendation that Barr be held in contempt. The committee subpoenaed for Mueller’s report and the underlying material in April. When Barr didn’t comply, they held a committee contempt vote. (Talking Points Memo / Axios / Washington Post)

    3/ Trump vowed to move forward with imposing tariffs on Mexican imports next week, warning Republican senators they would be “foolish” to try and stop him. Any vote to disapprove the tariffs would likely face a presidential veto. The 5% tariffs on all Mexican goods, rising to 25% over time, are intended to force Mexico to stop the Central American migrants from seeking entry into the U.S. (New York Times)

    Trump’s tariffs on China, Mexico, Europe and other governments will nullify the gains from his $1.5 trillion tax cut for low and middle-income earners, according to two new analyses. (New York Times)

    4/ Republican senators warned Trump that they were prepared to block his effort to impose tariffs on Mexican imports. Senators told the White House and Justice Department there could be a disapproval vote if Trump moves forward and they may have enough support to override a veto. After a closed-door meeting with White House officials, Mitch McConnell told reporters that “there is not much support in my conference for tariffs, that’s for sure.” Republican senators are worried that the tariffs on all imported goods from Mexico will impact the economy and their home states. (Washington Post / New York Times / Politico)

    5/ The owners of the former Trump Panama hotel accused the Trump Organization of evading taxes and creating a “false light” around one of the hotel’s finances. The accusations, made in a legal filing in Manhattan federal court, claimed that Trump’s family cheated a foreign government and that the Trump Organization “made fraudulent and false claims to the Panamanian tax authorities” in order to “cover up its unlawful activities.” The Trump Organization called the claims “completely false.” (New York Times / Washington Post / NBC News)

    6/ Dozens of migrant children spent up to 39 hours in a van while waiting to be reunited with their parents. What was supposed to be a 30-minute ride to reunite with their parents at an ICE facility in Texas in July, turned into a two-night ordeal in the back of a van for the children, all of whom are between 5 and 12 years old. Most spent at least 23 hours in the vans. Emails between employees of the nonprofit government contractor responsible for transporting the children reveal frustrations with the lack of preparation by ICE and senior leadership at the Department of Health and Human Services. (NBC News)

    7/ The Trump campaign spends $37,500 a month for office space in Trump Tower that “four or five” campaign staffers work at. The cost per-square-foot is nearly triple what the Republican National Committee pays at a newly opened office in northern Virginia it shares with the campaign. (HuffPost)

    8/ The Trump administration twice authorized U.S. companies to share sensitive nuclear power information with Saudi Arabia after the assassination of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi by the Saudi government. In all, the Department of Energy has approved the transfer of nuclear information from U.S. companies to Saudi Arabia seven times under Trump. (Reuters / The Guardian / Axios)


    • These comments also apply to Comrade Reagan:

      Sen. Kennedy blasts Democrats’ three-year ‘tantrum’ over 2016 election: ‘This is all wicked abusive’

      “We’re going into the third year that they’ve been throwing a tantrum over the election result. They need to leave the man alone, let him be president,” he argued, adding that Democrats should campaign against the president if they dislike him.

      “I wish I didn’t have to say this. There are some members of the House leadership whose only mission in life is to demonize the president.”


    • Bidden, Ronnie is like a Rachel Maddow or Cher. They actually believe their smarter than you contempt for knuckle dragging conservatives is somehow saving the planet, human race and environment. That makes them feel better about themselves.

  2. Backlash by the American public to the tin foil hat networks like MSNBC, CNN that sitll push the “Collusion Delusion” and anywhere Comrade Reagan finds his wacky conspiracy blog information:

    Many Americans Say Made-Up News Is a Critical Problem That Needs To Be Fixed

    Many Americans say the creation and spread of made-up news and information is causing significant harm to the nation and needs to be stopped, according to a new Pew Research Center survey of 6,127 U.S. adults conducted between Feb. 19 and March 4, 2019, on the Center’s American Trends Panel.

    Indeed, more Americans view made-up news as a very big problem for the country than identify terrorism, illegal immigration, racism and sexism that way. Additionally, nearly seven-in-ten U.S. adults (68%) say made-up news and information greatly impacts Americans’ confidence in government institutions, and roughly half (54%) say it is having a major impact on our confidence in each other.


  3. London Pub Gets Renamed by Trump Fans To Honor POTUS During UK Visit

    The liberal mainstream media takes great delight in hindering the support for President Donald Trump and his agenda, no matter how well he’s doing.

    And that includes hyping stories of overseas opposition to Trump.

    But for Trump supporters, where there’s a will, there’s a way — and Damien Smyth, a 53-year-old born in Ireland, got the attention of the media after renaming his West London pub in honor of the 45th U.S. president, according to the U.K. Sun.

    The tavern, officially known as The Jameson, has been temporarily renamed “The Trump Arms,” as the first couple makes another visit to the United Kingdom….

    In the ABC interview, the pub owner stood up for Trump supporters in the U.K., condemning the lack of positive media coverage over Trump’s 2018 visit.

    “There has to be another side to the story, you know,” Smyth said. “We have to show the American people that the British, the Irish and the Americans are family friends. We’re old friends and this can’t be forgotten.”


  4. This just may cause the tree hugging liberal leftists to support immigration reform:

    WaPo: Immigrants Stealing Succulents from State Parks, Harming Ecosystem

    Foreign nationals, primarily from Asia, are reportedly disrupting West Coast ecosystems by arriving in the United States and stealing succulent plants from U.S. state parks.

    A detailed report by the Washington Post reveals how foreign nationals from Asia are increasingly coming to the U.S. to rip succulent plants out of the ground at state parks to sell them in their home countries of South Korea, China, and Japan.


  5. Here’s a patriotic former US Marine Sargent supporting the Commander in Chief for the 75th anniversary D-Day appearance. Very nice article and pictures that only Comrade Reagan would criticize since she has firearms:

    Trump is on an official state visit to the U.K. and, while there have been some protests, Ihrke is right behind her commander in chief.

    “I always want our president to succeed, no matter who they are. I’m all-American and love this country! I hope Trump’s visit to the U.K. is a great one,” she said….

    Ihrke joined the military at age 19 and served on active duty for four years, including in Afghanistan….

    “It was hard but it was also completely necessary. I pushed my body harder than I could have ever imagined and I learned to remain calm and collected in the midst of chaos,” she recalled.

    Ihrke became a sergeant, traveled the world and, thanks to the GI Bill, earned a science degree from Elmhurst College in Illinois…..

    “I owe the Marine Corps my life, hands down. It gave me a reason to wake up, push myself, set goals, and to push myself even harder when things got tough.

    “Had I not had other dreams I still wanted to accomplish in my life I would have re-enlisted without hesitation… and although I am no longer on active duty, I will always bleed green.

    “Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But the Marines don’t have that problem.”


  6. Never will I understand why every responsible voter wouldn’t s–t can Mop Head for a Bill Weld, John Kasich or a Steve Bullock.

    Let’s take Kasich – He was the budget director and as a Republican cut military spending to balance the budget. Turned Blue State Ohio Red, and told the nursing home industry there to kiss his ass saving taxpayers over a billion dollars. What the f–k is wrong with that?

    If you would take time to listen to reason instead of Trump’s mumble jumble horseshit, you’d find Bill Weld to be the most intelligent and logical person out there with EVERYTHING he says.

    Governor of Montana, Steve Bullock, a Democratic governor from a Red State – Take time to listen to him.

    I caught Mop Head’s drift the first time I heard him speak. He lied two times within 5 minutes totally condradicting himself. I immediately caught how if he accuses someone of being a “liar”, that’s because he lies more himself. When he called someone “crooked”, that’s because he knew he was more crooked himself. And when he called someone a “national disgrace”, that’s because he wanted to get out ahead of him being so.

    Now it’s treason he says. And that is EXACTLY what I saw him do in Helsinki.

    Bill Browder – What every man without bone spurs should strive to live up to, and try to match.

    If you haven’t read up on Bill Browder yet, and therefore not realized what a “Real Man” in this world actually is, do it.

    I doubt it will sway a Trump voter but I believe it will make them think.

    Which would be an astonishing improvement….
