Illinois Expunging Marijuana Convictions
Recreational marijuana was recently legalized in Illinois, with the new law going into effect in 2020. Democratic Governor J.B. Pritzker isn’t wasting any time taking advantage of it. Because of this law, some 800,00 marijuana convictions will be expunged from the criminal records of past offenders.
While the choice to use marijuana, either medically or recreationally is a personal one, there are some facts to consider before you decide. For example, marijuana use, for ANY reason, even medical, is still illegal under federal law, no matter what states decide. This fact has some serious repercussions if you want to do something like legally buy a gun.
With federal and state laws being in conflict with one another, one of the biggest issues is that those who use marijuana will find themselves no longer able to enjoy their 2A rights.
Legalizing marijuana is a popular decision for many states and voters alike, we just want to make sure you have all the facts.

Marcus has an estimated net worth of almost $6 billion. He was a top donor to Trump’s 2016 campaign and plans to top the charts in 2020 as well — he’s leaving the vast majority of his wealth in his foundation and donating the rest to Trump. Marcus has been, and will continue to be, a valuable boon for the current president.
America Wins the Trade War with China
Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G20 summit over the weekend, and it sounds like things went really well.
I had a great meeting with President Xi of China yesterday, far better than expected. I agreed not to increase the already existing Tariffs that we charge China while we continue to negotiate. China has agreed that, during the negotiation, they will begin purchasing large…..

Once again, Trump has proven that he really is great at deal-making. The White House has not yet revealed the details of the meeting, but Trump announced that a truce has been made and that “we’re winning, and we’re winning big.” He also announced that he will allow sales of US technology supplies to Huawei, a Chinese telecommunications company.
Although people on the Left are already complaining, most people don’t need all the details to know that Trump made a great deal. He has made our economy and job market better than it has been in years. He has obviously perfected the art of the deal.
