The New York Young Republican Club answers Trump’s call for rallies

At least one New York City political organization is responding to the former president donald trumpThe complex legal situation he has hinted at could lead to his arrest on Tuesday.

The New York Young Republican Club, founded in 1911, has quietly planned a “peaceful protest rally” in New York City on Monday to draw attention to “the American judicial system,” according to an exclusive event announcement shared with Inside the Beltway .

Speaking of rallies, Mr. Trump himself has his own rally planned just days away, scheduled for Saturday at the airport in Waco, Texas.

It’s not without meaning.

The event is the first official rally of his 2024 campaign. It’s also titled “Make America Great Again Rally” — using the same well-known phrase that was a successful theme and a mainstay of his 2020 campaign.

So how is it going in the host city?

“The City of Waco employees and the Waco Police Dept. are working diligently and strategically with several other law enforcement agencies, including the Secret Service, to employ best practices to ensure the venue for the Trump campaign-requested event is secure at the Waco Regional Airport,” Mayor of Waco Dillon Meek said KWTX, the city’s CBS affiliate.

But wait, there’s more news surrounding the 45th President.

“Former President Donald Trump has found a group of ardent supporters on Chinese social media as his claims of imminent arrest bounced online,” a report from Business Insider said.

“At 11:30 p.m. Beijing time on Saturday, news of a possible impeachment against Trump topped the charts on the Twitter-like Weibo platform. The hashtag “Trump Says He Will Be Arrested Soon” was the fifth-most popular topic on Weibo as of Saturday night, with more than 59 million views,” the report reads.

“When the hashtag went viral on Weibo, there was a surge of support for Trump on the platform as well. A slew of Trump-loving Weibo commenters — who made up the majority of the hundreds of posts Insider saw — encouraged him to persevere and fight any criminal charges with all his might,” Business Insider said.


The US press, meanwhile, is certainly reporting on the former president donald trump‘s legal saga. Here are some key headlines.

“Could a Criminal Indictment Really Help Trump’s 2024 Campaign?” (New Yorker Magazine); “Manhattan prosecutors’ Trump case rests on shaky legal and ethical foundations, experts say” (Just the News); “Manhattan DA says his office will not tolerate ‘intimidation’ after Trump posts” (CNN); “Legal expert torches potential Trump arrest from Manhattan prosecutors: ‘Banana Republic-esque stuff'” (Fox News); “Kevin McCarthy orders a congressional investigation into the local district attorney investigating Trump” (Axios); “Inside Payoff to Porn Star That Could Lead to Trump’s Impeachment” (The New York Times); and “Why is Donald Trump being arrested and what does the indictment mean for his presidential candidacy?” (The Daily Mail).


Meanwhile, Americans watch the news media and are not satisfied with what they see, at least as far as accuracy and transparency are concerned.

“Three-fourths of Americans — 75% — think the spread of misinformation in the United States today is a very serious problem that encompasses a large majority across all political, gender, racial, educational, and age groups. Seventeen percent think misinformation is a fairly serious problem, while 4 percent think it’s a not-so-serious problem, and 2 percent think it’s not a problem at all,” reports a new Quinnipiac University poll.

“When Americans were asked whether they would continue to watch or read the news source they rely on for information if they felt the news source was intentionally not reporting the truth, 87% said they would not continue to use that news source watch or read, 11% would say they would continue to watch or read this news source,” says the survey analysis.

Our always alert and helpful CBP farming specialists captured six giant African snails at Detroit Metropolitan Airport. The live snails were discovered on Friday in the suitcase of a traveler who came to the United States from Ghana.

“Although intended for direct consumption, the snails pose significant human and environmental health risks and are considered an invasive species. The snails were subsequently confiscated for further analysis,” the agency said in a statement.

“African giant snails may carry a parasitic nematode that can cause meningitis in humans. The snails also have a big appetite and eat 500 different types of plants in addition to plaster and stucco. They are popular for consumption and are even kept as pets in other countries,” CBP said.

The state of Florida battled the slugs — which can be 8 inches long and 5 inches in diameter — in Broward and Miami-Dade counties from 2011 to 2021, eventually winning the slug war after losing $24 million to the effort, according to Florida Ministry of Agriculture.

“The Florida Department of Agriculture and the Crop Industry Consumer Services Division have been working toward eradication through multiple rounds of visual survey and inspection, K-9 detector dog survey and inspection, manual collection and treatment programs. A total of 168,538 snails were collected from 32 core population areas consisting of thousands of properties,” the agency said in an Oct. 8, 2021 report.
