*Guitarist Jack Sherman (Red Hot Chili Peppers) is no longer with us.

WITHIN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA…
*With families being separated upon apprehension, President Trump declared the lack of a border wall a “national emergency”. There have since been legal and legislative battles initiated over this. But what about the health/safety of all the “detainees”???
NOTE: While we are doing our best to provide coverage, the above is a serious, ongoing issue. Especially since no one has yet to discuss the costs of separating families and who is truly responsible for the deaths of FOUR “detainees” (known to date), let alone if anyone might actually be making a profit from this situation.
*Donald Trump claims the only way he’ll lose in November is if the election is rigged, but considering how he’s treating the Post Office, most people fear HE’S doing the rigging! (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
*On the first night of the virtual Democratic Convention, Trump didn’t like what Michelle Obama had to say.
*Night two of the convention: SEVENTEEN key note speakers.

*The lawsuits because of Trump's continued attacks against the post office should be no surprise either.
*Yet Trump is now suing New Jersey over their planned use of mail-in ballots this November, and isn’t happy the Senate wants to investigate the Post Office too! (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
*DeJoy says everything is “on hold” now until after the election. Yet nothing already done will be undone, because employees are NOT allowed to reassemble the sorting machines! (There are 3/THREE separate links in this item.)
*The House of Representatives returns to session in hopes of saving the Post Office, but what is the Senate up to??? (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
