Trump’s “National Emergency” –Will It Hit a Wall?

The President did it  –he’s declared a national emergency as a way of getting his long-promised wall built.  But will his critics in Congress stop it, as they are already promising they will?  Here’s On-Target’s Larry Sparano’s thoughts on it, in a conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

‘El Chapo’ to Pay for Trump’s Wall?

Could newly-convicted Mexican drug lord Joaquin Guzman, known as ‘El Chapo’ end up “paying” for Trump’s border wall?  Sen. Ted Cruz says it could happen, through use of 14 billion dollars seized by the Feds, from the proceeds of Guzman’s drug trafficking empire.   Here’s more on that intriguing possibility, along with the latest betting on whether Trump will sign the compromise bill to fund the Wall.  The conversation is between On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

The Wall Compromise: Best Path for Trump?

 

As we seem to be heading for a Democrat-Republican compromise on Wall funding, President Trump is being criticized by the far-right for caving in to the liberals.  But On-Target’s Larry Sparano believes Trump might be choosing the best path to avoid another round of the turmoil which the recent government shutdown generated –a turmoil which was destructive for both sides of the political isle.  Here’s Larry’s discussion with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Trump Socialism

Better Healthcare Through “Socialism”?

In his State of the Union address, President Trump vowed that America will never become a socialist nation.  That seemed to be a shot at Bernie Sanders and the new Democrats who won their mid-term elections by calling for universal Healthcare, free education, higher taxes on the rich and other programs which many Republicans are quick to label as “socialism.”  But would such programs really be socialism, and lead to the ruination of the country?  An increasing number of Americans seem to think otherwise, as reflected in recent public opinion polls.  Here’s On-Target’s Larry Sparano, in discussion with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

State of the Union: A Win or Loss for Trump?

Democrats are quickly pointing out what they say are all the distortions, exaggerations and lies in Trump’s State-of-the-Union address.  But will it make any difference heading into the 2020 election season?  Will Trump continue to hold his base, and perhaps even win new support?   And can Democrats rally enough votes to oust him by attacking his credibility?   Hear what On-Target’s Larry Sparano thinks, in his latest discussion with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

BuzzFeed Denial Echoes Dan Rather Downfall

If Mueller is right about the inaccuracy of the BuzzFeed story on Trump’s instruction to his lawyer to lie, what went wrong?   Did the media outlet fall into the same trap that lost Dan Rather his job at CBS?  Larry Sparano talks about that with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York.  Garrett worked with Rather at CBS:
