CNN headline fulfills Trump scheme by declaring he is ‘winning’ war to ‘demonize’ Mueller

Published

In self-fulfilling headline on Tuesday, CNN declared that President Donald Trump is “winning” the war to “demonize” special counsel Robert Mueller.

Writing on Chris Cillizza’s CNN blog in an article titled, “Trump is winning his effort to demonize Mueller,” Z. Byron Wolf argues that Trump’s “witch hunt” mantra is “working, for now.”

“But in terms of the Russia investigation, he’s embarked pretty clearly on an effort to make everything Mueller does out to be about politics rather than justice, and in doing so, he’s winning the argument,” the CNN contributor opines. “In large part, he’s winning it because he’s the only one arguing right now. Robert Mueller, presumably hard at work on his investigation, is not out in public defending himself or his staffers.”

Wolf adds: “Particularly among Republicans, [lower approval ratings] of the Mueller investigation [have] followed. It is when Mueller is viewed as a partisan — and that’s what Trump has tried to hammer into people’s minds for months — that the President can try try [SIC] to inoculate himself whatever action Mueller might someday take.”

Trump was likely in search of headlines when he embarked on the campaign to undermine Mueller. With the article on Cillizza’s blog, Trump has already achieved part of his goal.

"That would be U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota. She is sharp and witty, with a commanding understanding of both history and the inner workings of Capitol Hill."

Economists warn Trump policies will result in lost jobs and lower wages for American workers

Published

The 20-year-old San Diego bakery Con Pane Rustic Breads & Cafe went out of business this month after an audit by US authorities found immigrants working there illegally.

In April, a small Nebraska town lost a potato processing plant, and the local revenue it generated, in the wake of an immigration raid on its facilities. A restaurant in New York appears to have suffered similar fate in August.

Farmers say they are planting less, turning to automation, eliminating some crops, leaving them to rot in the field or contemplating selling out of the business altogether -- all because they cannot find enough immigrant labor.
