Impeachment: Which Way Is The Wind Blowing?

Democrats are in a full-court press to impeach the President.  And the hope among those heavily involved in the effort to remove a sitting president is that after the House impeaches, the Senate will convict. Will that happen? On-Target’s Larry Sparano explains why he thinks a conviction is still far from certain.  Here’s Larry in conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

 

Will Senate Fold? Key in Effort to Remove Trump

More House Democrats are hopping aboard the Impeach Trump bandwagon. But whether it gets them to their goal of removing Trump from office depends on what happens in the Republican controlled Senate. On-Target’s Larry Sparano discusses the crucial elements necessary to unseat Donald Trump with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

 

Impeachment Inquiry: How Much Will Dems Inquire about Biden?

Now that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has called for an Impeachment Inquiry concerning Trump’s alleged crimes regarding Ukraine, Trump’s critics are licking their chops in anticipation of moving in for the kill. And Comedian Steven Colbert is leading the pack of hyenas circling the President. But On-Target’s Larry Sparano finds it odd that the appetite of Colbert and others hasn’t been whetted by Biden’s action’s in Ukraine. Larry and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York begin their difference of opinions with the tail end of Colbert’s attack on Trump:

Ukraine Scandal: Who Will Be Hurt More? –Trump or Biden?

The Democrats’ new press for impeachment is being fueled by  the discovery of Trump’s pressure on Ukraine to investigate Biden’s role in winning favor for his son, Hunter. But when all the dirt comes out, who will emerge the dirtiest?  That’s today’s topic between On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Whistleblower Bombshell? –Will Latest Effort to Remove Trump Fizzle?

The left is salivating, and the right is enraged over the latest so-called “bombshell,” involving a whistleblower who says the President made a very disturbing promise to a foreign leader. Will it give more ammunition to  Democrats intent on impeachment, or will it backfire and actually add to Trump’s support?  That’s today’s topic under discussion by On-Target’s Larry Sparanp and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Trump’s New NSA Chief: A Move Away From War? –and Squelching Snowden and Dissent

Two items today:  Trump’s permanent pick for National Security Adviser –is it a move away from war?  And the government lawsuit against whistleblower Edward Snowden:  He’s the guy who, as an NSA employee, leaked information about the government’s mass surveillance program . Now, he’s published that information in a book, and the government is suing him for violation of his agreement not to publish anything without it first being  vetted by government officials. On Target’s Larry Sparano says it’s another way of squelching dissent.  Here’s his conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Warren’s Crowds Swell –Enough To Put Her Over The Top?

Elizabeth Warren, once written off as a long shot to win the Democratic Presidential nomination, is now edging out Bernie Sanders as the main challenger to Joe Biden. But can the increasingly large and enthusiastic crowds she’s drawing spill over into strong support among a larger constituency?  That’s the topic of today’s discussion between On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Trump Cool Down on Iran –Blunder or Strategy?

While the U.S, continues to insist that the missiles that struck Saudi oil refineries recently were launched by Iran, Trump at the same time seems to be cooling his heals a bit about striking back, after tweeting that the U.S. is “Locked and Loaded.”  As with so many of Trump’s mixed messages, it’s again hard to tell if Trump is having second thoughts, or if his apparent reversal is just part of a carrot and stick approach to international relations. On-Target’s Larry Sparano has been trying to figure it out, as you’ll hear in this exchange with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Trump’s March Toward War: Kupperman New Enabler

Looks like Trump has finally been given the excuse he needs to go to war with Iran. The U.S. is claiming that the drones or cruise missiles that struck Saudi Arabia’s oil refineries were launched from Iran. And he has a new enabler to get him there. He’s Charles Kupperman, who replaces the ousted  Neocon war hawk John Bolton as Trump’s National Security Adviser. And judging by Kupperman’s past comments, he is even crazier than Bolton. On-Target’s Larry Sparano says Kupperman’s appointment may help usher the way into a very dangerous conflict in the mid-east.

 

 

For Two-Cents More: Would Elizabeth Warren’s Tax on the Wealthy Work?

Did Thursday night’s debate among the ten leading Democratic contenders for the Presidency result in any dramatic gains or losses for those who would lead the nation in 2020?  And would Elizabeth Warren’s two cent tax fund an array of social programs?   Warren proposes to fund Medicare for All, Universal Child Care, Free College Tuition, Cancellation of Student Debt and a host of other social programs through taxation of the wealthiest  Americans.  Warren says that all that can be paid for just by putting a two cent tax on every dollar of personal income over 50-million.  Would it work? That’s what On-Target’s Larry  Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York would like to find out:
