DML Morning Briefing: May 28: UFOs swarming Navy ship, Ryan swarming Trump with negativity
Today is May 28 and I am Dennis Michael Lynch. Below are my opinions on the stories grabbing headlines this morning. I hope you share this briefing as doing so will make you the smartest person in the room, in my opinion.
1. New UFO video released
The filmmaker who leaked footage of UFOs harassing a warship off the coast of California in 2019 released new radar footage Thursday that purportedly shows the USS Omaha being swarmed by unidentified aerial phenomena.
Jeremy Corbell claims the video was filmed in the Combat Information Center of the ship on July 15, 2019. Earlier this month, he introduced footage, taken aboard the USS Omaha, of a mysterious, spherical object flying over the ship before disappearing into the ocean.
“This is corroborative electro-optic data demonstrating a significant UFO event series in a warning area off San Diego,” Corbell tweeted Thursday.
The new unclassified clip shows sailors aboard the Omaha observing as many as nine UFOs swarming the ship at speeds approaching 160mph.
“Holy s–t they’re going fast,” a sailor is heard saying, before adding, “Oh, it’s turning around.”
DML: Do the aliens take Bitcoin? Perhaps they can take a few politicians (Democrats) for a ride to Jupiter. I’ll do my part in paying for the fuel.
2-GOP poised to block bipartisan 1/6 riot probe
WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Republicans are poised to block the creation of a special commission to study the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, dashing hopes for a bipartisan panel amid a GOP push to put the violent insurrection by Donald Trump’s supporters behind them.
Broad Republican opposition was expected in what would be the first successful Senate filibuster of the Biden presidency, even as the family of a Capitol Police officer who collapsed and died after the siege and other officers who battled rioters went office to office asking GOP senators to support the commission. The insurrection was the worst attack on the Capitol in 200 years and interrupted the certification of Democrat Joe Biden’s win over Trump.
DML: How about when we get a special investigation into Black Lives Matter and Antifa then we focus on the one-off event at the Capital?
3-Former House Speaker Paul Ryan tells GOP to REJECT Trump
Daily Mail — Former House Speaker Paul Ryan joined the fight against Donald Trump on Thursday, urging fellow conservatives to reject the former president’s divisive politics and those Republican leaders who emulate him.
Ryan, 51, was Speaker from 2015 until 2019, leaving following a series of clashes with Trump. He has kept a low profile since leaving frontline politics, and since March 2019 has sat on the board of Fox News.
He made his remarks on Thursday during an evening address at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California.
DML: Listening to this Rino it appears he should be more appreciative of Trump considering the president did more in 4 years than Ryan has in a lifetime.
4-Apple gets rare sell rating as New Street downgrades and predicts nearly 30% stock decline
CNBC – Apple could see a significant decline in sales of its flagship iPhone and investors should get out before the stock tumbles, according to a note from New Street Research.
The tech giant reported nearly $48 billion in iPhone sales for its fiscal second quarter, helping the company blow past analyst estimates for earnings and revenue. Several analysts have said that the iPhone 12 was part of a new supercycle for Apple.
However, New Street analyst Pierre Ferragu downgraded the stock to sell from neutral, saying in a note to clients on Friday that the strong sales for the iPhone 12 seem unsustainable.
DML: Betting against Apple is like betting on Jeff Flake to be the GOP nominee in 2024. Just stupid.
