Mornings with the One Percent™ was 9 till Noon Today, Replays are Below

Arnold, CA…This morning we featured New Hampshire speeches, Amador Calaveras Hospice & the WHO Coronavirus. Mornings with the One Percent™ is live weekday mornings from 7-10am. The premise for the show is that the USDA ranked all 3,142 counties or county equivalents in the USA on a livability or desirability scale based on factors such as climate, scenic beauty, bodies of water for recreation, humidity and much more. All of our area ranked not only in the top one percent but in the top one half of one percent. So in the ups and downs of daily life remember you don’t have to be a Gates, Buffett or Bezos to live like the one percent. Just live here!

            “When President Trump lies or embellishes on a topic this sensitive, and administration officials then parrot his claims to avoid drawing his ire, the situation becomes extremely dangerous for our troops and the American people,” he declared.

            He was asked: “Don’t the American people have a right to know what specifically was targeted without revealing methods and sources?”

            Trump: “Well I don’t think so, but we will tell you that it was probably going to be the embassy in Baghdad.”

          “He’s very comfortable propagandizing that event for political purposes,” O’Brien said. “Even in the face of tragedy, he can’t help but self-promote and self-aggrandize.”

            President Trump marked the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks at a Pentagon ceremony where he revived an evidence-free claim that he rushed to help out at Ground Zero following the attack on the World Trade Center.

            “I was looking out of a window from a building at Midtown Manhattan directly at the World Trade Center when I saw a second plane at a tremendous speed go into the second tower,” Trump said Wednesday. It was then that I realized the world was going to change. I was no longer going to be, and it could never, ever be that innocent place that I thought it was.”

            He went on to claim that he and his “men” headed to Ground Zero to help.

              Trump’s claim goes back to at least Sept. 13, 2001, when he told a German television station several blocks away from the Ground Zero site that he had “a lot of men” at Ground Zero.

              No images of Trump’s help at Ground Zero exist. Aside from two interviews he did blocks away from the actual site in the days after the attacks, the earliest publicly available photo of Trump at the Ground Zero site was taken on Sept. 18, when he spoke outside the New York Stock Exchange.

                “Donald Trump was absolutely not a first responder by any standard definition,” he said. “If we’re defining it as the first wave of people who arrived at ground zero to provide help, he was not in that wave.”

                O’Brien said that there was no way Trump could have sent more than 100 of his men to the site because at the time the Trump Organization was “a little bit over a dozen people.”

Republicans shouldn’t support Russia 🇷🇺

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s recent invitation to Trump to attend Victory Day festivities in Moscow this spring is designed to bring the U.S. president ever deeper into the Kremlin fold. Appearing on Sunday Evening With Vladimir Soloviev, politician Sergey Stankevich asserted, “Donald Trump has to come to Moscow in May, no doubt about it. He is obligated to be here.”

    On another gleeful note, political scientist Dmitry Evstafiev argued that “Trump might start to engage in McCarthyism, which will be the first step in the self-destruction of the American system.”

    He predicted the disintegration of existing political institutions in the United States, prompted by Trump’s outright rejection of bipartisanship, which will be replaced by the authoritarian system he is striving to create.

    Evstafiev marveled at the 97 percent GOP votes cast for Trump in Iowa and pointed out that these votes symbolize the hollowing out of the Republican Party, with no viable candidates who could follow in Trump’s footsteps.

Trump Brings Up Debunked Claim of Democratic Voter Fraud at New Hampshire Rally

— Trump held a rally in Manchester on Monday night, where he reiterated a debunked claim that voters from Massachusetts drove up to the Granite State to vote in 2016.

“Remember last time?,” Trump asked the crowd at Southern New Hampshire University.

“We won the primary tremendously. We should’ve won the [general] election, but they had buses being shipped up from Massachusetts, hundreds and hundreds. And it was very close, even though they did.”
