Will Failing Economy Doom Trump?

Economic indicators are pointing to a recession–or worse–ahead. Would a worsening economic crisis doom Trump’s re-election bid? That’s the topic today, with On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Former AP Newsman Bryant Thomas:

Labor Secretary: U.S. Becoming 3rd World Country

Things Fall Apart:  And that’s what Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich says is happening to the United States.  Reich, who was Labor Secretary under Clinton, says the signs are there, and they signal the country’s descent into economic and social chaos. Here’s On-Target’s Larry Sparano talking about that with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

 

Beto O’Rourke: Trump to Blame for El Paso. –Really?

Former Texas Congressman and now Democratic Presidential Candidate Beto O’Rourke says the mass shooting in his hometown of El Paso is pretty much all Trump’s fault.  But On-Target’s Larry Sparano says others, including many members of O’Rourke’s own party should share the blame.  Here’s Larry in conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

 

Will Trump’s “Racism” Work For or Against Him?

Much is being said about how Trump’s continuing “racist” comments are losing him more and more votes among those who are not part of his base. And polling reportedly shows that the President is losing large numbers of surburban woman, and of course, women in general.  How will all this shake out as the 2020 election approaches?  Larry Sparano articulates his thouights on WIOX Radio New York in his latest segment with Kent Garrett.  But we begin with a piece by Farron Cousins of the Ring of Fire Podcast.  Larry’s own anaylsis follows:

 

Media Hysteria Over Trump and North Korea

Trump’s statement that he’d not allow CIA spies to infiltrate the government of North Korea’s Kim Jong Uh is causing a new round of hysteria among media figures who should know better.  The outrage follows reports that Kim executed his half-brother because of such spying.  Critic says Trump should condeming Kim’s action, instead of re-assuring him. In an interview with Trump-bashing author Michael Wolff , MSNBC’s Ari Melber  discussed possible ways to thwart what they say are Trump’s continuing distortions and lies about just about everything.   But On-Target’s Larry Sparano says their cure could be worse than the disease.  Here’s Larry in conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Who’s Dumber: “Smart Guy” David Pakman or Trump Voters?

Progressive-Liberal Podcaster David Pakman says the reason Hillary lost to Trump is because those who voted for Trump are dumb, too dumb to know how bad Trump is, and too dumb to know how much Progressives could improve the country under another Clinton administration.  But On-Target’s Larry Sparano says it is Pakman who is the dumbest for not realizing what really drove voters to Trump.  Before you hear Larry’s opinion during his latest segment with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York, you can listen to “Smart Guy” Pakman trying to convince listeners how dumb Trump supporters are.

Trump-Pelosi Hissy-Fits: Does Either Side Win?

In their latest blow-out,  Donald Trump and House Leader Nancy Pelosi each accused the other of wrongdoing, as the war between the Trump Administration and the Congressional Democrats continues.  The latest episode of the contining sit-com was set off when Trump walked out of a scheduled meeting with Dems in the White House.  Trump says he left, because prior to the meeting, Pelosi accused the President of a cover-up regarding his alleged “obstruction of justice.”  As soon as he left the meeting, Trump blasted Pelose and the Democrats in the White House Rose Garden, in a press conference he scheduled before his walk-out.  Critics say Trump went into the meeting having already decided to walk-out, so he could immediately attack Democrats for what he describes as their continuing witch hunt and agenda for his impeachment.  The meeting, by the way, was to discuss the crucial issue of repairing the nation’s infrastructure.  On-Target’s Larry Sparano offers his reaction to the latest partisan skirmish, with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

 

Trump’s War with Iran and Immigration Laws: –How Will it Play to his Base?

Would a war with Iran be a boost or a hindrance to Trump’s ability to hold onto his base and gain even wider support going into the 2020 election?  And what about his proposed changes to immigration law, and what the requirements should be for entry into the U.S.?  According to CNN’s Don Lemon, both would be a big negative for the President.  But On-Target’s Larry Sparano is not so sure.  He discusses both topics with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

 

Noam Chomsky: Trump’s Hidden Masters –Larry Sparano reacts

Renowned linquist and political analyst Noam Chomsky begins to today’s segment, with his reading on  mistakes by Democrats that could give Trump another election victory in 2020.  He talks about the hidden constituencies of both parties, which make both Dems and Republicans dance to tunes which the electorate no longer wishes to hear.  Following Chomsky’s analysis,  On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett react to Chomsky’s main points. We begin with Chomsky:

Trump Runs the Clock –As Biden Entry Splits Dems

Joe Biden’s entry into the 2020 Presidential race might actually help Donald Trump in his efforts to run out the clock on impeachment before the next election.  On-Target’s Larry Sparano explains why in his latest exchange with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:
