Steve Schmidt reacts to the news that a grand jury in Manhattan has indicted Donald Trump as District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office has been investigating the former president in connection with his alleged role in a hush money payment scheme and cover-up involving adult film star Stormy Daniels that dates to the 2016 presidential election. He explains why this will not be good for Trump’s 2024 election campaign and why it is “a most dangerous hour” for our country.

Either we live in a country of laws, or we don’t. I prefer to live in a country with laws. If we don’t prosecute lawbreakers, we lose the rule of law. No one should be above it.

Steve Schmidt reacts to the latest campaign ad for Ron DeSantis. He discusses how the ad’s heroic themes do not match DeSantis’ persona. He also explains how Trump will attack the Florida Governor and why DeSantis has been unable to separate himself from the former president.

DeSantis writing a book about freedom makes as little sense as Trump writing about running a successful business.

We have a unique opportunity during shut-in, shut down to observe and analyze our current leaders, up close under crisis. How do our gubernatorial, congressional, Chief Executive Officer (President) leaders handle crisis management? Do they manage with urgency, command, and control, or confusion and apathy? This devastating pandemic provides us an interesting opportunity to contrast and compare between distinct styles of leadership, Governor Andrew Cuomo and President Donald J. Trump.

So many of us, on all sides of the political divide (see the divide and conquer), have gravitated to the alpha male confident, command, and control crisis handling style of workaholic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. Remember Governor and chief is in the Cuomo D.N.A.

Perhaps some are drawn to this article after awakening to how our leaders serve the American Public. Do we want leaders with practical solutions with immediate benefit to us and the streets where we live or ones with 10-word answers for complex and complicated problems?

Some leaders find themselves in direct conflict with their own words from daily debriefs.






Steve Schmidt: We Are ‘One Election Away… From Losing Our Democracy’ | Deadline | MSNBC



An unexpected pleasure of pandemic safe distancing protocol is that viewers now get a full array of background options for our favorite news personalities. Steve Schmidt is the most background fluid. This tells me he has a flexible production crew in his person or a very light, nimble tech production team. Occam’s Razor tells the majority a different story: he has watched the rest and discovered the best is to switch up the background if you broadcast from home (see any during a pandemic) ..Notice Steve rarely consecutively broadcasts his featured spots from the same room in what we assume is his home. Most news experts have one room for data, work, and the occasional Zoom broadcast call with CNN/MSNBC. Steve’s voice is much-needed gravity and gravitas in this Era of the strange and chaotic. Steve’s strong moral compass, almost the voice of Moses, is pitch-perfect, adding considerable value to any discussion about our current state of disarray. But has anyone, like me, noticed Steve has a Uber masculine home that features contemporary lines and one very Norwegian chic center block kitchen? Does this kitchen scream for a great party and awesome vegan savory chimichanga? Is anyone else thinking with me on this one? In a not-so-distant former life, I would argue for a Pork Center Loin with the aforementioned marinade (the hours in the fridge before grilling with indirect on my Weber Grill).
