Ask any person walking down the street if they have ever heard of White House Social Media Director Dan Scavino, and the answer will almost certainly be “No” – an answer that is likely to bring a smile to Scavino’s face.
Meet Dan Scavino
Scavino first met Trump when he was in high school working as a caddie at the Briar Hall Country Club in New York’s Hudson Valley in 1990. Scavino, 16 at the time, was handpicked to be Trump’s caddie, and to this day, Scavino has the very first gratuity tip that Trump gave him: two one-hundred dollar bills. Later that day, Trump told Scavino, “You are going to work for me one day.”
Scavino, who avoids the spotlight and avoids talking to the media, has been described by multiple senior White House officials as Trump’s most trusted adviser, not including Trump’s own family. The officials indicated that Scavino’s sense of justice, loyalty to the president, and selfless nature were all key factors in his becoming a member of Trump’s inner and most trusted circle.
Scavino is the co-mastermind behind Trump’s Twitter account, which Trump sees as his very “own printing press” that he can use to “knock the crap out of people.”
“Dan has been with us from the very beginning,” Donald Trump Jr. told The Daily Wire. “He’s just one of those friends you can always depend on."
Former senior White House adviser Sebastian Gorka told The Daily Wire that Scavino was the “master of social media messaging,” and is “one of the hardest working patriots I’ve ever known.”
“He’s been in the room for many of the most consequential moments of our lifetime, always supporting the president and his agenda 100% .. And he never looks to get credit or grab the spotlight. He’s there to serve the president and the country.”

Pocahontas Will Endorse .. For The Right Price
Democratic voters must select a male nominee to
take on lose to President Donald J. Trump in the general election. Notwithstanding the Democratic Party's alleged commitment to diversity, voters have narrowed it down to a choice between two old white dudes.
Warren has a crucial decision to make. Her next move could determine whether the nomination goes to Biden, a 77-year-old train enthusiast with mild dementia, or Sanders, a 78-year-old socialist with heart problems.
Given the party establishment's ruthless opposition to Bernie, Warren could be jeopardizing her career prospects by refusing to line up behind Biden.
Warren's critics have described the senator as a "snake" who will say and do anything to advance her personal interests—for example, by falsely claiming to be of Native American heritage.
Will Warren adhere to her leftist principles by offering an immediate, full-throated endorsement of Sanders? Or will she succumb to the allure of her own ambition by endorsing Biden?
Time will tell.

The Coronavirus issue hits on three main points of policy outlined by President Trump since his announcement of candidacy in 2015: (1) The need for secure borders and strong immigration controls. (2) The need to stop reliance on Chinese manufacturing; and (3) The need for the U.S. to have independent control over key sectors of manufacturing; including healthcare products and pharmaceuticals, as a matter of national security.
Everything about Coronavirus is hyped with political purpose.
When evaluating economic impacts, specifically to the U.S, it is important to remember 80 percent of all activity within the U.S. is internal. We create and consume eighty percent of our own production.
The U.S. economy is unique in the amount of balance within it as compared to other industrial economies. We are not dependent on exports to sustain our economy; and we are not dependent on any imports at the macro level. Unlike China, Asia and Europe, and despite decades of efforts by globalists and multinationals, the U.S. generates and sustains a tremendous amount of our own economic prosperity.
Obviously economic activity in China is severely impacted by the Coronavirus issues. The level of their impact is not yet quantified; however, any economic contraction within China can have impacts on downstream economies based on their level of dependency.
As an example the European economy is heavily dependent on China for delivery of products and for Beijing to purchase industrial goods from the EU. The result: when Beijing sneezes the EU economy catches a cold.
The U.S. economy is more balanced. As a consumer economy we consume our own production and we have the resources to produce just about everything we need.
The America First policy is specifically focused to keep this advantage in place.

The income of many long-term politicians on both Republican and Democrat sides of the aisle was completely disrupted by President Trump winning the election.
In the aftermath of the 2016 election the system within DC was not structurally set-up to receive a Donald Trump presidency. President Donald Trump winning the election threw a monkey wrench into the entire DC system. In early 2017 the modern legislative machine was frozen in place.
If Hillary Clinton had won the election, her Oval Office desk would be filled with legislation passed by congress which she would have been signing. Heck, she’d have writer’s cramp from all of the special interest legislation, driven by special interest groups that supported her campaign, that would be flowing to her desk.
Why? Simply because the authors of the legislation, the originating special interest and lobbying groups, were spending millions to fund her campaign. Hillary Clinton would be signing K-Street constructed special interest legislation to repay all of those donors/investors.
When we understand the business of DC, we understand the difference between legislation with a traditional purpose and modern legislation with a financial and political agenda. The important part to remember is that the origination of the entire process is EXTERNAL to congress.
Congress does not write laws or legislation, special interest groups do. Lobbyists are paid, some very well paid, to get politicians to go along with the need of the legislative group.
Lobbyists take the law and go find politician(s) to support it. Politicians get support from their peers using tenure and status etc. Eventually, if things go according to norm, the legislation gets a vote.
This is the way legislation is created.
Within every step of the process there are expense account lunches, dinners, trips, venue tickets and a host of other customary financial way-points to generate/leverage a successful outcome. The amount of money spent is proportional to the benefit derived from the outcome.
When you are voting for a Congressional Rep or a U.S. Senator you are not voting for a person who will write laws. Your rep only votes on legislation to approve or disapprove of constructs that are written by outside groups and sold to them through lobbyists who work for those outside groups.
While all of this is happening the same outside groups who write the laws are providing money for the campaigns of the politicians they need to pass them.

'You Are Fake News'
He looks at the correspondents and gives them a stare,
I would answer your question and always be fair,
But you’re clowns, pantomimes, and innocuous gloats,
Pompous, grandstanding, obnoxious showboats.
