COP on the Hill:

Stories from the week of July 20, 2018

CNN and the coming Coup d’Etat: I bumped into a respected and intelligent acquaintance this week and the talk turned to Helsinki…moments later the guy was trembling with anger and venom as he spoke of CNN promoting and organizing a coup to overthrow the US government and put a liberal in the White House. I calmly (I learned de-escalation as a cop) asked him if it would be Dems picking up AR 15s and storming the gates. The question made him even angrier. Suffice to say emotions and conspiracy theories are off the charts here in the Swamp.

141 doors in Longworth House Building this week and several chats with Congressmen…. We had our monthly ‘Happy Hour’ hosted by Michael Correia and crew (NCIA-National Cannabis Industry Association) …we 10-12 advocates/lobbyists discuss tactics, ideas, bills the first hour and then relax. Thank you, Michael.
