Stores are closing at alarming rate. The number so far this year is triple what it was in the same period last year, according to an analysis by Fung Global Retail & Technology, a retail think tank.

There have been 5,300 store closing announcements through June 20, making it the second worst year on record at the six-month mark. The worst year ever for store closings was 2008 during the Great Recession, when Credit Suisse counted 6,163 closings. But 2017 is poised to easily surpass that.
It's called internet shopping Kyle! You think that might have something to do with it Kyle? The stock market is at a all time Kyle! Nice try though! LOL!

It’s easier to count the days President Donald Trump hasn’t lied.

A New York Times editorial says the president has only managed to be falsehood free 39 total days in his first sixth months in office.

Authors David Leonhardt and Stuart A. Thompson listed every single lie the president has said since taking office six months ago. They say Trump started his administration with a 40-day lying streak, only managing to go fib-free for the first time on March 1.

They set a conservative bar for what constitutes a lie, but say Trump’s “long pattern of using untruths to serve his purposes, as a businessman and politician, means that his statements are not simply careless errors.”

Donald Trump has repeatedly labeled his political opponents liars. He dubbed Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) Lyin' Ted when it became clear that Cruz was a serious rival for his nomination; he called Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) an "even bigger liar" than Cruz. He dubbed Dr. Ben Carson a "pathological liar" and said former Florida Governor Jeb Bush's lies were almost as bad as Cruz's. Trump has termed virtually every mildly adversarial media member a liar, too.

This is all correct? So Trump calls Ben Carson a "pathological liar" and then appoints him to a cabinet post. That is called being two-faced.

Here is more meanness by a Republican. This is likely where Trump numbers are heading after a few more nasty tweets.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/07/03/politics/chris-christie-beach/index.html

On Friday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie ordered beaches across the Garden State closed -- a reaction to the ongoing budget impasse in the state's legislature.

Less than 48 hours later, photos from NJ Advance Media showed Christie sunning himself with his family on Island Beach State Park

By mid-June, a Quinnipiac University poll put Christie's approval rating at just 15%, the worst approval rating for any governor in any state poll ever conducted by Quinnipiac. Eighty-one percent of New Jersey voters disapproved of the job Christie was doing.

And, if there's anyone out there who l-o-v-e-s Christie sunbathing while the beaches are shut down, it's Trump. The President digs anyone who thumbs his nose at convention. If you can feud with the press too, well, that's a double bonus in the eyes of Trump.
When you see Christie on the beach then, you see a man who has stopped caring.

Tale of a traitor: Is the famous betrayal of Benedict Arnold echoed in Michael Flynn?

Embittered by rejection and in need of money, a general turns against his own country. Who are we talking about?

This accomplish put Trumps multiple marriages and adultery to shame.

Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter celebrate their amazing lives together—Happy 71st Anniversary!

Each has accomplished great deeds, individually. Jimmy, of course, as President, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, facilitator of peace, longtime advocate of democracy, education, solar energy… and Rosalynn with her work fighting for the rights of those with mental illness, as well as helping to remove the stigma. She also actively advocates for the elderly. Both Jimmy and Rosalynn are very prolific book authors.

Together, they are equally astounding.

The Carters created The Carter Center together in 1982, soon after the President left office and have since been “Waging Peace, Fighting Disease and Building Hope” around world. They have sought solutions for peace, monitored elections for freedom and democracy, and helped bring the cases of Guinea Worm disease from 3 million cases down to fewer than 10 cases. These accomplishments just touch on the work behind The Carter Center.

The Carters have also been building homes with Habitat for Humanity for over 30 years.

There are so many warning signs that Trump wants to be a dictator. God help us if he succeeds in becoming one. I hope our constitution is strong enough to prevent it.

But the biggest political question remains: How long will Republicans stand by this president? With Republicans in control of Congress, this may be the most far-reaching issue in terms of how this scandal will unfold.

It keeps getting harder for Republicans to absorb this heat and fend off the controversy. With Donald Trump Jr. releasing the emails himself (apparently in advance of another New York Times story on them), the President can't call it "fake news."

Republicans have many reasons to stop defending the President. Trump and his administration have a credibility crisis that is unlike anything we have seen in recent decades. At this point, Republicans have sat on their hands as the President and members of his team have repeatedly hidden information, twisted and changed their positions (sometimes, in the course of one day), lied about basic facts and acted to impede investigation.

45 years after Watergate, we're back in the same kind of mess

If the Trump team is really innocent of any wrongdoing, they certainly don't act this way. Their strongest and most consistent defense has been to keep blasting the alleged "fake news" industry, despite the fact that much of the false information comes right from them. Right now, a Republican would be almost foolhardy to publicly vouch for anything that the president says.

The Russia chaos has put a stranglehold on the Republican legislative agenda. This is the anti-New Deal, not because President Trump's legislative accomplishments are so conservative, but because they don't exist. The Republican dreams about what united government could bring back in January 2017 today seem comical.

Talking about the wrongdoing of others, bush lawyer and US President Donald Trump snr had lectured in the recent past that there's collusion when people know that what's going down is illegal – and they do nothing about it.

By that measure, revelations in The New York Times suggest that Donald Trump jnr is in trouble – and the same goes for his brother-in-law Jared Kushner and one-time Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort. And maybe Dad too.
