Mission Statement: This blog reviews the news of the day in light of 242 years of American history. "Nationalism," a modern day pejorative, has been our country's politic throughout history, until 2008. Obama changed that narrative. Trump is seeking a return to our historical roots. Midknight Review supports this return to normality.
Fake News story #230: As much a fairy tale as is the "Trump is a Russian spy" nonsense . Sheer blather, and, it came from the NY Time's backroom editorial staff (as in "staff infection") . . . . . . . of course.
Mike Pence has denounced a New York Times article suggesting he is
eyeing a 2020 run for president as false, calling it 'disgraceful and
offensive.' The article, published Saturday, claims Pence has developed
an 'independent power base, cementing his status as Mr Trump's heir
apparent and promoting himself as the main conduit between the
Republican donor class and the administration.' On Sunday Pence said in a
statement that the claims were 'categorically false' and accused the
paper of attempting to 'divide' the administration.
