Laura Ingraham: What Tuesday’s showdown between Pelosi and Schumer and Trump is really about

On Tuesday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer return to the White House for a meeting with President Trump. This time it’s about an infrastructure deal, but I’m going to tell you what the showdown is really all about.

On Monday, the guy who spent eight years working there, Joe Biden, tried mightily to convince you that this time, he has all the answers. But what’s in his pitch in this phenomenal Trump economy?

“I think we have to – I think we have to rethink how we define what constitutes a successful economy,” he said to supporters at a rally in Pittsburgh.

Well, that’s convenient, right? If you can’t beat him, as in Trump’s economic numbers, just change the way everything is scored because by traditional metrics — I’m talking GDP, wage growth, unemployment numbers and the stock market — Trump should be a lock for 2020.

Whether you like his tone or not, or his tweets, the president has beaten almost every target set by the so-called economic experts. Speaking of so-called experts, Nobel laureate Paul Krugman predicted an economic apocalypse, a global recession after Trump’s selection. Well, what happened to that? Monday’s headline in Forbes read: “The Trump 2020 economic recession isn’t happening.” Sorry, Paul.

And what can we expect under a President Biden? What will he deliver? Well, say goodbye to “America first” trade policies that are working. Biden was a big advocate of that boondoggle known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership that would’ve offshored jobs to places like Malaysia and Vietnam.

Bye-bye to the tariffs that have forced cheating countries to the table. And Biden would ditch all the protections for American workers-founded deals like the USMCA. So, if you’re one of the 450,000 Americans with a new manufacturing job, your future will be far from certain under Biden.

But remember, Joe pledges to bring you “dignity.” Of course, he fails to respect the tight labor market that Trump’s policies have helped create. What does that do? That helps with restoring dignity because workers’ wages are finally going up. That means more money in your pocket and more time to spend with your family.

And now those dire predictions, they all failed. Since things are going so well, Biden has to kind of throw magic reality altering dust in the air to convince you that this isn’t one of the best times ever to be an American who is willing to work –and by the way, it is.

Trump, of course, has an easy response to that. “Remember, President Obama said manufacturing jobs are gone. You need a wand, a magic wand,” he said a recent rally. “We found the magic wand because they’re coming and they’re coming fast. I love the fact that wages are rising fastest for the lowest income Americans, percentage-wise. And we’re now the number one economy anywhere in the world, and it’s not even close.”

Here’s where Chuck and Nancy come in, because they’re back at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue on Tuesday with a framework for a massive infrastructure package. Remember, last month at a Democrat retreat, Pelosi floated a price tag of $2 trillion.

Make no mistake. This whole routine on Tuesday is as much about setting the narrative for 2020 as it is about getting something done that is traditionally a bipartisan effort, infrastructure.

Democrats also want to expand the definition of what infrastructure is, beyond, in other words, fixing bridges roads and airports to include things like enhancing broadband, water systems, schools and housing. Why not? Why stop there? And predictably, Democrats want the cost to be borne by people — meaning you — by doing what? Raising taxes, of course.

Well, that’s a non-starter for President Trump because he believes a tax hike will slow this red hot economy and of course, betray his campaign promises to be a tax cutter. My question is this: Will there be any big kumbaya moment? It’s hard to imagine any cooperative spirit given how their last tense meetup went down.

This whole routine on Tuesday is as much about setting the narrative for 2020 as it is about getting something done that is traditionally a bipartisan effort, infrastructure. If infrastructure spending can pay for itself by stimulating the economy, creating its own revenue stream, well, I guess you can make the argument for it. But if not, we shouldn’t do that infrastructure spending, at least not right now.

Democrats and Republicans are addicted to spending your money, albeit they have different priorities. Republicans, remember, were itching to bust those Obama era spending caps to jack up military spending. They thought it was justified. And Democrats, well, they’re fine on spending money we don’t have on stuff like Green Energy, free college, free preschool, free everything.

There’s no end to this spending. And the way the national debt clock looks, it’s obscene that we’re doing to future generations. Everybody talks about modifying entitlements, changing them, reforming them. But no one ever does anything about it.

Axios reported that Chuck and Nancy are carefully preparing for this meeting on Tuesday with the president. But they want to do it in order to gain maximum political benefit. Their true aim is to set up whomever the Democratic nominee is as the defender of the working men and women against the rich executives.

And considering Biden’s performance on Monday, he needs all the help he can get.

Smart to end U.S. sales this year

Mercedes-Benz is pulling the plug on the Smart brand in the United States.

The microcar division will discontinue sales in the U.S. and Canada at the end of the 2019 model year, the automaker has confirmed.

Smart launched in the U.S. in 2008 by selling 24,622 of its two-seat ForTwo models, but that figure fell to 14,595 in 2009 and the company was only able to deliver 1,276 cars in 2018 as it became an all-electric brand.

SELF-DRIVING SMART WANTS TO SET YOU UP

At less than nine feet long, the French-made ForTwo is the smallest car sold in the United States, but has a starting price of $23,900 and an EPA combined range of just 108 miles per charge.

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido has called for a military uprising, saying he has begun the “final phase” of his plan to oust embattled President Nicolas Maduro.

In a three-minute video posted on his Twitter account, the 35-year-old lawmaker said soldiers who took the streets would be acting to protect Venezuela’s constitution.

“The moment is now,” said Guaido, who shot the video at a Caracas airbase surrounded by soldiers and accompanied by detained activist and mentor, Leopoldo Lopez.

“The national armed forces have taken the correct decision, and they count on the support of the Venezuelan people,” he said.

Guaido declared himself interim president of Venezuela earlier this year, in direct opposition to Maduro.

Lopez has been under house arrest for leading an anti-government put in 2014.

Trump wants to designate Muslim Brotherhood a terror group: report

President Trump is pushing on designating the Muslim Brotherhood a foreign terrorist organization, according to a New York Times report published Tuesday.

The Muslim Brotherhood, which denies allegations of terrorism and insists that it supports Democracy, has been designated a terrorist organization by countries such as Russia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates.

CALLS MOUNT FOR TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TO LABEL MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD ‘TERRORIST ORGANIZATION’

According to the New York Times, the Trump administration directed national security and diplomatic officials to come up with ways to slap sanctions on the Islamist political movement. This comes after Trump met with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, who has long decried the Muslim Brotherhood that has opposed his rule in the country, the report said.

By designating the movement as a terror group, it would immediately become the target of American sanctions and restrictions, including travel bans and other limits on economic activity.

The State Department did not immediately respond to an email from Fox News.

It would become a criminal act for Americans to fund the group, ban banks from processing money for it, bar those with ties to the group from coming to the United States and make it easier to deport immigrants who have worked with the organization.

Yet the move appears to have caused internal debate, according to the report. While John Bolton, the national security adviser, and Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state, reportedly support the move, some officials within the Pentagon oppose the sweeping designation and instead are working to come up with a more moderate compromise.

EXCLUSIVE: LAWMAKERS CALL ON TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TO OUTLAW MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD WITH NEW STRATEGY

“The president has consulted with his national security team and leaders in the region who share his concern, and this designation is working its way through the internal process,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the newspaper.

But the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization has been floated around the White House at least since 2017.

At that time, the government was considering designating both the movement and Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as terror groups. The Iranian group was finally designated as a terror group only earlier this month.

“By calling for the entire group to be designated as a terrorist organization, the Trump administration is making an extraordinarily broad policy determination that will harm the participation of Muslim groups in democratic processes.”

— Laura Pitter of Human Rights Watch

“The Muslim Brotherhood is a large and complex political organization operating in many countries,” Laura Pitter, senior U.S. national security counsel at Human Rights Watch, told the Wall Street Journal in 2017.

The designation would also have a wide-ranging consequences to the U.S. foreign policy. Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose country is part of NATO, openly supports the Islamist movement, the paper reported.

Some Americans and groups also have ties to the Brotherhood, potentially putting all of them in a dire legal situation if the organization gets designated as a terror group.

Fox News’ Maxim Lott contributed to this report.

Peter Morici: Speaker Pelosi should stop blocking the USMCA

Westlake Legal Group 854081161001_6027968218001_6027962853001-vs Peter Morici: Speaker Pelosi should stop blocking the USMCA Peter Morici fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/politics fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc f104bad8-790e-561c-b81f-fd8e95f5aa06 article /FOX NEWS/WORLD/GLOBAL ECONOMY/Trade

In the spirit of opposing everything Trump – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has announced the House will not take up legislative approval of the recently revised NAFTA – the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) – until Mexico first changes its trade laws to comply with the deal. This flies in the face of Mexican pride – an issue not to be trifled – and jeopardizes many gains organized labor and critics of free trade on the left have long sought.

The original agreement was implemented in 1994 – long before the digital revolution, the mapping of DNA and biologicals and Chinese mercantilism so fundamentally threatened North American jobs.

NAFTA has integrated supply chains across all three countries, permitted the auto and other industries to keep activities on this continent that might have gone to Asia and enabled Mexico to avoid much of the instability that has plagued nations further south.

INTERNATIONAL TRADE IS INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT TO SMALL BUSINESSES – HERE’S WHY

Detractors point to the $78 billion bilateral trade deficit with Mexico. President Trump likes to cite a deficit with Canada that does not exist – we have a deficit on goods but once services are added, we have a modest surplus with our northern neighbor.

The facts are that Mexico City used NAFTA to become a springboard for global free trade. It has negotiated deals with the EU, Japan and more countries than any government on the planet. U.S. automakers and other manufacturers – as well as many service providers – can set up shop in Mexico and take advantage of duty-free or preferred access to those markets – that’s something they can’t do from the United States.

That giant sucking sound that Ross Perot talked about was not cheap labor – though that surely helped – but simply a smarter trade policy than the Americans who have become decidedly adept at blaming others, whether justified or otherwise, for job losses and mounting foreign debt to finance trade deficits.

Whatever your thinking or visceral instincts about President Trump and Peter Navarro’s ruminations on trade, America’s chief negotiator, Robert Lighthizer should get his head chiseled on the Mount Rushmore of American trade officials and policy wonks for his accomplishments in the negotiating the USMCA.

Some are unalloyed benefits for those who like open markets and free competition. For example, Lighthizer won better access in Canada for U.S. dairy, poultry and eggs – make or break goals for U.S. farmers. The agreement contains stronger protections for intellectual property and much freer access for U.S.-based technology services, and safeguards against the protectionist impulses of legislators and bureaucrats to undercut those, for example, by prohibiting government regulations that cloud and data services must be domiciled in any one of three countries.

Recognizing the threat that China poses with its subsidized steel and aluminum and rising and state-promoted car industry, it raises from 62.5 to 75 percent the North American content required in autos to qualify for duty-free treatment and that the metals in cars be largely of North American origin. And it includes some tougher content requirements – what we call in the trade wonk world “rules of origin” – in textiles, chemicals, glass and optical fiber.

It also requires that 40 to 45 percent of the labor in motor vehicles be paid at least $16 an hour. This mostly applies to Mexico as the United Autoworker, as their Canadian brethren get a lot more than that in wages and benefits.

Free trade purists see such provisions as protectionist but trade agreements are not negotiated on college classroom blackboards, where workers magically move from production jobs in auto parts plants in Michigan to coding jobs in Seattle when Chinese or Korean imports, benefiting from a state subsidy or cheap currency, knock off their jobs.

It’s hardly free trade for a Taiwanese bicycle manufacturer to source parts in China and set up screwdriver operation in Mexico to attach a few wheels and then send the product north to evade U.S. tariffs.

Without handicapping the deal with complexity only benefiting trade lawyers and bureaucrats and to combat China playing one USMCA partner against another, the agreement imposes on Mexico and Canada a tough choice – free trade with China or America.

If they enter into a deal with the Middle Kingdom, they are out of the agreement and the USMCA becomes a bilateral deal between the remaining two partners.

Like sausages and laws – free trade deals are made in the real world with folks for an appetite for progress. The possible is never perfect, and House Democrats should put aside their partisan instincts to help pass it.

Tucker Carlson: Press suck up to power instead of defending the First Amendment at WH Correspondents’ Dinner

In case you weren’t invited, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner took place over the weekend. For the third year in a row, Donald Trump was invited but took a pass and didn’t show up.

That has never happened in the long history of the dinner. Presidents always show up. They always show up in a tuxedo and head downtown to suck up to the White House Correspondents’ Association. They don’t want to do that. They hate going — every one of them. All presidents deeply despise the news media, but they make themselves go. They have no choice. It is a hostage situation.

If you blow off the dinner, the press will punish you, guaranteed. They won’t admit it, of course. They won’t say it’s personal; they will make up some story. Here, for example is Jeff Zucker’s spokesman, CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter, claiming that not going to media dinner is the same as attacking the media.

CLICK HERE TO READ MORE FROM TUCKER CARLSON.

“Say what you will about the press, this is an event honors the First Amendment,” he said on the air. “Yes, that’s what it’s about. It’s an awards dinner and a fundraiser. In the past, presidents have always shown up. Even if they were angry, the president would go and have a good time. This is yet another example of what we are seeing. The administration’s attack against the media takes many forms. One form is the president having a rally this Saturday instead of attending the dinner.”

Dumb people are so self-confident. Have you noticed that? It’s almost like there is a self-esteem confidence reverse access.

Anyway, they are telling us that going to your own events instead of our event is a form of harassment. Do you know what’s not harassment, according to CNN? Spying on former Fox News reporter, James Rosen, and his parents because you don’t like what he is covering. The Obama administration actually did that, and then Obama went to eight separate White House Correspondents’ Association dinners. Nobody ever denounced him as immoral.

CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE ENTIRE EPISODE.

Obama hated reporters, by the way. Most people do hate reporters, for good reason. But reporters loved him back anyway. They agreed with his politics. That’s what happens.

When they don’t agree with your politics, people like Olivier Knox, president of the White House Correspondents’ Association, saying things like the following at the dinner: “I still separate my career into the period before 2017 and what came afterward, and that’s because February 2017 is when the President of the United States called us the enemies of the people. I thought it was time that we reset this dinner and put the focus a little more squarely on journalism and a little more squarely on the First Amendment, and a little more on the people, the men and women who help to hold the most powerful political institution in American life to account. Ladies and gentlemen, to the First Amendment.”

People are doubting the news media. That’s wrong. We are seeing misinformation masquerading as news, they are telling us — and actually, they are right. We have seen a lot of that recently. How about the last two years of Russia coverage on CNN, for example? Michael Cohen met secretly with Russian spies in Prague. Don, Jr. is about to be indicted. The Steele dossier is entirely real. They told us all of that, and much more. All of it was wrong and stupid and totally dishonest.

The New York Times, the Washington Post both won Pulitzers for what turned out to be misinformation masquerading as news. Last Saturday night would have been a perfect moment, actually, to apologize for that debacle and return the prizes they won.

But no. Nobody apologized. Nobody returned a Pulitzer. Instead, they celebrated themselves. No surprise there. That’s what they do. What was odd, though, was hearing them talk about free speech.

The First Amendment is, in fact, under ferocious attack, really more than any time in the last 50 years, at least, and yet the people in that room at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner seemed to notice. Where were these same people last summer when the Big Tech companies colluded to silence broadcaster Alex Jones? “Alex Jones, he is bad.” CNN literally led the effort to make him be quiet. Jeff Zucker doesn’t agree with Alex Jones’ political views, therefore he thinks Alex Jones shouldn’t be allowed to talk. So Zucker shut him up by force.

The New York Times, the Washington Post both won Pulitzers for what turned out to be misinformation masquerading as news. Last Saturday night would have been a perfect moment, actually, to apologize for that debacle and return the prizes they won. But no. Nobody apologized. Nobody returned a Pulitzer. Instead, they celebrated themselves.

Did anyone at Saturday’s dinner mention any of that? And where were they when Facebook and Twitter blocked ads supporting Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn because they criticized abortion? Where were they when Tommy Robinson went to prison in the U.K. for having unfashionable these about immigration? Where were they when James Damore got fired and was then slandered by Google for questioning the company’s diversity theology? Where were they when Peter Vlaming lost his job teaching in Virginia because he wouldn’t use male pronouns to describe a female student?

Did any of the First Amendment defenders — “Here is to the First Amendment,” they say — at the dinner on Saturday say a single word about any of this? Of course, they didn’t. Their job, they say, is to hold the powerful to account. But when given the chance to push back against the truly powerful — the actually powerful, the we-are-not-even- kidding-powerful — Google, Amazon, Facebook, PayPal — do they say anything? Ever?

No. Of course not. They suck up every single time. They suck up to power. Because that’s who they are –dutiful toadies to the powerful, defending class interests and pretending it is principle.

Meghan Markle will keep American traditions, ‘bring her own sense of parenting,’ royal expert says

Westlake Legal Group meghan-markle-will-keep-american-traditions-bring-her-own-sense-of-parenting-royal-expert-says Meghan Markle will keep American traditions, 'bring her own sense of parenting,' royal expert says Stephanie Nolasco fox-news/world/personalities/british-royals fox-news/entertainment/events/babies fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news/meghan-markle fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article a5c0aa27-fc1f-550d-8557-8e57fffb5038

Meghan Markle hasn’t been afraid to break tradition as a member of the British royal family and we can expect for her to do exactly the same with baby Sussex.

The former American actress, 37, officially became the Duchess of Sussex when she married Prince Harry, 34, in May 2018. The couple is expecting their firstborn any day now.

“I think what we’ve seen with Meghan that makes her so unique and I think has really endeared her to people is that while she has a great respect for the traditions of the monarchy, the cultural institution that she married into, she also showed this ability to bring her own sense of identity, her heritage, being an American into being a royal,” royal expert Katie Nicholl told Fox News.

Nicholl, a British best-selling author and royal correspondent for Vanity Fair, recently published “Harry and Meghan: Life, Loss, and Love,” which presents an in-depth look at Harry’s romance with Markle and how their high-profile union is reshaping the monarchy. It features interviews with friends close to the couple, those who have worked with Harry, as well as palace aides, among others.

“The transition to parenthood is a huge one for anybody, but it’s particularly huge when a royal baby is involved because there’s just so much attention and interest to anything,” explained Nicholl. “But… I think [Markle] will manage to bring her own sense of parenting and reflect on her own American traditions. And I think she will find a way to very nearly merge that with royal tradition, along with everything else that is expected of a royal baby.”

Nicholl pointed out that as a first-time mom, Markle will be able to instill some of her own American traditions because top members of the royal family, including Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles, Harry’s grandmother and father, have quickly embraced Markle.

“Charles thinks Meghan is the best thing that has ever happened to Harry,” said Nicholl.

Nicholl pointed out Markle was allowed to enjoy a lavish, star-studded baby shower in New York City thrown by her close friends. And the British monarchy had no trouble with Markle celebrating overseas.

“I think that the royal family understands that Meghan’s heritage and culture of being an American are very, very important to her,” Nicholl continued. “We saw that with the baby shower  — it’s not particularly an English thing to do, but it is an American thing to do. It was important to Meghan and she was very much allowed to go and enjoy that tradition. I think we will see her embrace parts of her cultural identity in the way that she and Harry raise the child. And I think it will be done with the full blessing of the queen.”

However, Nicholl warned Markle shouldn’t stay too far behind from royal tradition because she is still expected to keep up with the role of duchess gracefully.

“The couple must be careful not to stray too far,” said Nicholl.

Nicoll recently told Fox News that Elizabeth, Harry’s grandmother, gave the former “Suits” leading lady her official stamp of approval.

QUEEN ELIZABETH ‘RECOGNIZES HOW HAPPY’ MEGHAN MARKLE MAKES PRINCE HARRY, BOOK CLAIMS

“I’ve been quite impressed by how much responsibility the queen has given Meghan,” Nicholl explained. “The queen likes Meghan. She recognizes how happy Meghan makes Harry, but she also sees how capable Meghan is as a royal. She showed them how much she thought of Meghan in the early days before they were actually married when she invited Meghan to be a part of the Commonwealth Day service. Quite an important event in the royal calendar. And there was Meghan before she was actually married into the royal family.”

Nicholl claimed Elizabeth is so fond of Markle she did more than invite her to personal, intimate family gatherings leading up to the marriage — she put her to work as a future duchess.

“The queen put Meghan on that world stage before she was even a member of the royal family,” said Nicholl. “I remember being really struck by that, surprised and impressed. The way Meghan has been fast-tracked into the royal family has been quite unique.”

Before the baby’s arrival, Markle and Harry moved into their newly renovated Frogmore Cottage on Elizabeth’s Windsor Estate. Nicholl said it is the ideal setting for the family looking for privacy.

It’s also a place Harry and Markle will allegedly use to raise a large family.

“I think Harry and Meghan are united in wanting a big family,” said Nicholl. “I think that Frogmore [having] 10 bedrooms is probably an indication that they’re certainly hoping for more than one child. Certainly, from the sources that I spoke to, it’s on the agenda and they don’t want to waste any time about it.”

Florida woman accused of sending pics of male’s genitals over social media: report

A 24-year-old mother-of-two who allegedly “maliciously posted” photos of a man’s genitalia on his own social media accounts and demanded he pay her to stop was arrested in Florida Saturday on a federal extortion charge, a report said.

Breyanna Dean, of New Port Richey, Fla., “directly exposed the victim to disgrace” by using his old phone to access his social media accounts and then sending out images of his genitals “across multiple social media platforms in direct messages,” a criminal complaint obtained by The Smoking Gun said.

Prosecutors accuse Dean of changing the unnamed victim’s passwords to prevent him from deactivating the accounts. Dean then allegedly demanded the victim “by written communication to pay monetary payment to stop her actions.”

Dean was released late Saturday after posting $10,000 bond on the felony count.

The woman, who is originally from Massachusetts, was previously convicted of disorderly conduct, careless driving, and leaving the scene of an accident, The Smoking Gun reported, citing court records.

She also was involved in two class-action lawsuits last year for cyberstalking. In one case, a female plaintiff was granted a six-month restraining order against Dean. A second woman was given a temporary injunction against Dean until the case was dismissed by a judge.

Trump calls for asylum overhaul to fight border crisis; Tension over Barr testimony escalates

Good morning and welcome to Fox News First. Here’s what you need to know today …

An asylum overhaul to counter a border crisis
President Trump has called for a sweeping overhaul to an asylum system he has long said is rife with fraud — including a new fee to process asylum applicants, and the capacity to rapidly adjudicate applicants’ claims while also barring them from working in the U.S. in the meantime. In a presidential memorandum, Trump specifically told Attorney General Barr and acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan that the move was necessary to address a crisis at the border. Arrests along the southern border have skyrocketed in recent months, with border agents making more than 100,000 arrests or denials of entry in March, a 12-year high. Immigration courts that process asylum claims currently have a backlog of more than 800,000 cases.

‘Issued to harass’: Trump sues to block subpoenas of business records
President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit Monday against Deutsche Bank and Capital One in an attempt to block congressional subpoenas for his business records, claiming House Democrats are simply attempting to harass him. Two House committees subpoenaed Deutsche Bank and several other financial institutions earlier this month as part of investigations into Trump’s finances. The lawsuit by Trump, his sons Donald Jr. and Eric and his daughter Ivanka, was filed in Manhattan federal court. The Trump Organization and the Donald J. Trump Revocable Trust are among the other plaintiffs. Politico reported that in a joint statement, Democratic Reps. Maxine Waters, chairwoman of the Financial Services Committee and Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, called the Trump suit “meritless” and claimed it was a delay tactic.

Tension over Attorney General Barr’s testimony escalates
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Monday night that President Trump “has demonstrated on a daily basis his obstruction of justice” amid a conflict between the White House and Congress over the terms of scheduled testimony by Attorney General William Barr before the House Judiciary Committee. Barr is scheduled to testify before the Senate and House Judiciary panels this week on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report. However, the Justice Department informed the House committee on Sunday that Barr would not attend the scheduled Thursday hearing if committee lawyers seek to question him.

When asked if she had a message for Barr Monday evening, Pelosi said: “Respect the constitution. Honor your oath of office. Honor the request of Congress. For the American people.” The skirmish over Barr’s testimony came as Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein submitted his long-anticipated resignation, effective May 11. The growing tension could add even more intrigue to Tuesday’s scheduled meeting between Trump, Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on a national infrastructure package.

‘Medicare for All’ showdown
House Democrats will hold their first-ever hearing on Medicare for All legislation on Tuesday, advancing a sweeping proposal that several prominent 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls have embraced — even as some progressives caution the hearing may amount to a “farce,” and President Trump and top Republicans call the idea a socialist prescription for disaster. The 10 a.m. ET Rules Committee hearing concerns the Medicare for All Act of 2019, which promises to rapidly provide coverage for “all people living in the U.S.” within two years, according to the current draft of the bill and a summary released by Washington Democrat Rep. Pramila Jayapal. (WATCH Sen. Bernie Sanders defend his “Medicare for All” plan in the video from his Fox News Town Hall above.)

‘Gone way too soon’: Remembering director John Singleton
Hollywood is mourning the loss of Oscar-nominated writer and director John Singleton. The 51-year-old “Boyz n the Hood” director died Monday after having been in a coma for 12 days, following a stroke. Singleton’s family made an agonizing decision to remove him from life support. Stars flooded social media to pay tribute to Singleton, remembering him as an iconic director and a trailblazer in his industry. “I was discovered by a master filmmaker by the name of John Singleton,” Ice Cube, who starred in “Boyz n the Hood,” wrote on Twitter alongside a photo of the two at the Cannes Film Festival in the ’90s. “He not only made me a movie star but made me a filmmaker. There are no words to express how sad I am to lose my brother, friend & mentor. He loved bring the black experience to the world.”

Democrats struggling for pocketbook message as roaring economy helps Trump

The economy is on fire right now, and that, more than anything, could be a major boost to President Trump’s reelection chances.

And the Democrats are having a hard time figuring out how to run against this steamroller at a time of 4 percent unemployment and soaring stocks.

Of course, things could cool off before the election, as many economists predict a sharp slowdown in growth over the next two years.

But for now, the S&P and the Nasdaq just hit all-time highs, and the newly announced rebound in first-quarter growth, to 3.2 percent, trounced the market’s all-important expectations.

I’ve always felt that a president presiding over strong growth is far more likely to win a second term, even if other hot-button issues are dominating the news. The flip side is that strong economic anxieties can derail a reelection campaign, even if the economy is recovering from a recession, as happened when George H.W. Bush lost to Bill Clinton in 1992. And the Wall Street meltdown in the fall of 2008 helped put Barack Obama in the White House.

The nettlesome challenge for the Democratic candidates is to avoid appearing that they’re talking down a good economy or getting traction when most people are satisfied with their personal situation. During the 1982 midterms, Democrats privately hoped the jobless rate under Ronald Reagan would top 10 percent, which it did, but couldn’t say so publicly on their way to picking up 27 House seats.

Joe Biden is touted for his ability to connect with white, working-class voters in such industrial states as Michigan and Pennsylvania. But if those workers, except in certain fields, are generally doing well, that clearly undercuts the pitch.

But don’t take my word for it — ask Celinda Lake.

She’s a veteran Democratic pollster who told Politico that “we really don’t have a robust national message right now” on the economy. “We will tend to talk about things like paid leave and equal pay,” which are popular but “don’t add up to an economic message that is robust enough to win the presidency.”

Lake also said that people may not agree with Trump, but they know what his message is. “And Democrats, you don’t know what it is. And that’s a recipe for disaster in 2020.”

Look, many things will be at play in this election: Immigration. Health care. The Mueller report. Terrorism. Race relations. And Trump is underwater with key groups and has a 54 percent disapproval rating in the latest ABC/Washington Post poll.

And even on the economic front, not everything is Rosy Scenario. By the administration’s own projections, we’re looking at federal deficits over $1 trillion for the next four years. That’s what you get when you combine only modest spending restraint with tax cuts, which many Americans feel didn’t help them.

As the Politico piece notes, some Democratic candidates are taking broad swipes at the Trump economy, particularly on the subject of inequality.

Kamala Harris: “We have an economy in this country that is not working for working people.”

Elizabeth Warren: “Let’s make the zillionaires pay a fair share.”

Beto O’Rourke would undo the “worst excesses” of the GOP tax cuts.

One of the reasons that no economic message is breaking through is that there are 20 Democratic candidates, each vying for a share of the spotlight. That would matter less in hard times, but the Democrats don’t have that luxury.

If “it’s the economy, stupid” is as true today as when James Carville coined it a quarter-century ago, beating Trump will be harder than many Democrats think.
