Third times the charm?
President Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton may face-off against each other once again in the 2020 presidential election.
The former Democratic presidential nominee said during an event that even though she didn’t want to run, she’d still “like to be president.” However, it’s not set in stone that Clinton’s name will be on the ballot – she said she’s not going to think about a possible run until after the midterm elections.
If she were to run in 2020, her competition could potentially include contenders such as Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Michael Avenatti and Elizabeth Warren.
More peculiar packages
An Atlanta post office stopped a suspicious package addressed to CNN, the third mailed to the network in a week, officials said Monday.
Law enforcement described the recent package as similar in appearance to the ones allegedly sent by Cesar Sayoc. Sayoc has been nick-named the “mail-bomber” after supposedly sending more than a dozen pipe bombs to various Democrats and media figures — all of whom have been critics of President Donald Trump.
“Folks, we don’t have all the facts yet,” said Biden Thursday night at the State University of New York at Buffalo. “My hope is this recent spate of who knows what they were, pipe bombs being mailed, might wake everybody in my business up a little bit and we will begin to put this nation back together again.”
Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that they will “express the support of the American people and grieve with the Pittsburgh community.”
Some leaders of the Jewish community expressed their disinterest in the president’s visit until he “fully denounces white nationalism.”
The assailant, identified as Robert D. Bowers, opened fire on the synagogue killing at least 11 congregants and wounding four police officers and two others, authorities said. He was armed with at least three handguns and an AR-15-style assault rifle — the same weapon that has killed at least 173 people in mass shootings in the U.S. since 2007.
Talk the talk, walk the walk
President Trump’s latest tweet against fake news where he referred to the free press as “the true enemy of the people” prompted a journalist to ask a question the White House couldn’t answer: “Who exactly are the enemies?”
CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta grilled White House press secretary Sarah Sanders during a press briefing Monday. But when asked who exactly these outlets were, Sanders couldn’t name a single one.
There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news. The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly. That will do much to put out the flame…

Put your money where your mouth is — or maybe, don’t
President Donald Trump may not be on the ballot for the Nov. 6 midterm election, but that doesn’t mean he’s not campaigning.
Trump’s team launched a $6 million ad buy on television and digital media in support of Republicans. It was paid for by his own 2020 campaign.
The ad revolves around the booming economy, with flashbacks to the economic crisis that started 10 years ago, warning that it “could all go away if we don’t remember where we came from.”
That’s all we have for today. Check back in tomorrow for more.
