Speaking to the NAACP, look how much (or little) Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) thinks of her constituents. Turning voting integrity into racial bias. Less Blacks are buying that anymore. But, identity politics is all the Democrat establishment knows.
For whatever reason, and for however many people who care to vote but don’t have a valid picture ID, there are 103 days left to get one. Senator McCaskill doesn’t believe you can handle it. Witness the soft bigotry of low expectation. Democrats in Washington want you to believe that you are still a victim, and they are looking out for you.
Independent thinking anyone?

Here! Here! For President Trump for solving the faux controversy about separating illegal minor children from illegal (parent/coyote) adults .
“I’ll be doing something that’s somewhat preemptive and ultimately will be matched by legislation I’m sure,” Trump said.
Once ostensibly giving in to pressure for keeping families together, and the dramatic pictures prostituted by the media, signing this executive order has drawn out Democrats to fully admit the truth about their idea of immigration.
It is the goal of the Democrat(ic) Party to have open borders. People entering the country illegally should be a catch and release operation. In other words, keeping the family together in our country. No deportation, no turning them around. No holding for a judicial hearing. Translation, open border.
What a great platform for Democrats to run on. They can’t lie about their true motives any more. Thank You President Trump for drawing Democrats out before the mid-terms. Republican candidates will remember.

Since the Trump Administration began, 15 months ago, the economy is growing, companies are expanding, some moving back from abroad. On the labor side, unemployment has been dropping for the last fifteen months. Now at 3.8 percent. It’s all good. And, all the result of unleashing the economic engine that had been ignored for too long.
Remember what the unemployment rate was after Obama’s “stimulus” spending? There were two of them. It’s only relevant to mention Obama to understand the impact that government regulations, including taxes, have on the economy. Obama did it the classic, well post Kennedy, Democratic way of using the tax code and other regulations (including minimum wages) to “manage” the private sector. You lived the results.
Trump did it the free market capitalistic way. Minimizing taxes and regulations. And literally turning the economy loose.
What happened is that, as of the end of April, there are 6.7 million job openings according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And over the 12 months ending in April, hires totaled 66.1 million and
separations totaled 63.7 million, yielding a net employment gain of 2.4 million. And, as of April, the total workers looking and eligible for jobs fell to 6.35 million, a decrease from 6.58 million the previous month. There are 350,000 more jobs than people looking for them.
A free market economy is self-regulating when given the chance. And when given a chance, it will decide the right wage for a given job. Not the government.
With more jobs than people looking to fill them, you will see “Help Wanted” signs on store fronts. You’ll see “Now Hiring” on the back of tractor trailers on the Interstates. And you will also see employers competing for employees by paying higher wages. Economic supply and demand at work. Not a raving Marxist calling for a mandatory living wage.
Isn’t it obvious by now that the EU doesn’t really care about a nuclear Iran? Well, not more than they care about selling goods and services to Iran.
If they can’t survive economically without Iran, they’ve got a huge problem. There’s a world of customers out there, Iran doesn’t have to be one of them. And, funding a state sponsor of terror to the point that would enable Iran to lob a nuke their way makes sense to who?
