Happy Solstice, CountaBuddhas!
Whether or not you’re waking up this morning disheartened or cheered by yesterday’s special election results, whether you see this as a time of great light or great darkness, the wheel keeps spinning. Politics always marches on. So, let’s get to the head of the pack, shall we?
The president is headed to Cedar Rapids, IA today. He’s stopping at Kirkwood Community College to make some remarks about agricultural innovation. Perhaps he will also hold a shovel or sit on a tractor.
Tonight he’ll headline a ‘Make America Great Again’ rally then return to D.C.
Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson testifies in front of the House Intelligence Committee on Russian meddling in the 2016 election at 10 AM EDT. Watch it here.
President Trump will give remarks on Agricultural Innovation at 7:25 PM EDT. Watch it here.
Keep going, CountaWarriors! There’s no rest for the weary or the wicked in politics.

Trump knows as much about agriculture as he does about coal...nothing
We can hope that agricultural innovation includes sustainable agricultural practices that do not require extensive chemical inputs as fertilizers and pesticides. Also, more incentives are needed for fruits and vegetables versus animal feed crops like corn.
Hopefully he won't alienate to many farmers.
Is it a coincidence that global warming will greatly benefit Russia and that Trump supports the anti-Paris agreement forces?
Thank you, Mr. President for caring about the American people and their oars in the American economy...the sooner we can get the federal government out of local affairs (can state utilities manage vegetation on federal lands, really?) the sooner the American people will believe they DO have a say in the way they are governed.
I read the comments and they all have merit. Why talk about farming when you have never planted a thing or raised food. You need a real farmer and rancher to lead ,in this area. Stop poison ing crops and stock, that stuff ends up in the people who eat .
WIN WIN WIN WIN
China opened its gates to US beef imports this week, giving American cattle farmers much sought-after access to the country's massive market following a 14-year ban. This is just another great accomplishment President Trump did and was a result of the trade discussions when Chinese President Xi Jinpimg met with our fab President. Liberals focused and made fun of the chocolate cake but someday they might realize that sometimes there has to be something sweet in the deal! This is a sweet deal! Love our President! #45 Rocks!
