GRANDBABIES!! We just learned that Grandchild #8 is a boy. Please help us pray he stays tucked safely inside until his due date, October 29. His brother was five weeks early, so he’s at high risk for premature delivery.

IT’S NOT A CULT: A new narrative is taking form among liberals and never-Trump Republicans. According to them, the GOP is becoming a Trump cult. Rush Limbaugh says that’s horse hockey. “Donald Trump is not the cause of all this. Donald Trump is the beneficiary. Donald Trump had the ability to understand where a majority of Republican voters were and what they were thinking and how fed up they were about certain things. … He validated what they were thinking, and he has become their champion, because nobody else in your party stepped up!”

MAGA: No recent president has enjoyed a higher approval rating among his base than Trump since President Bush following the 9/11 terror attacks. That includes both Kennedy and Reagan.

MEDIA BIAS: It isn’t just about what they say and how they say it. It’s also about what the photos they do and do not use. The G-7 photo the MSM used most showed Trump apparently in a confrontation with all the other leaders. It didn’t show any of the ones like this one which was taken at the same time.

IG REPORT: “The media and the Left are spinning the IG report as a vindication of the FBI from the charge of bias, when the opposite is the truth. … The evidence of anti-Trump bias on the part of the agents who steered the Clinton probe … is immense.”

FREAKING HYPOCRITES: Three Democrat senators signed a letter to President Trump bemoaning, “The impact of rising fuel prices on our economy and on family budgets is significant and widespread.” All three — Schumer, Cantwell, and Markey — have long supported taxes as a means to increase the price of gas as part of a policy to reduce CO2 emissions to fight climate change. IOW, they advocate steep taxes to force Americans to stay home, but then when Republican presidents are in office, they complain that high gas prices force Americans to stay home. Oookay.

MORE OF SCHUMER’S INSUFFERABLE 2-FACEDNESS: Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said that by meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, President Trump has given “a brutal and repressive dictatorship the international legitimacy it has long craved.” But when then-President Obama met with the brutal and repressive dictator of Iran, Schumer said, “I give tremendous credit to President Obama for his work on this issue.

MASCULINITY & FATHERHOOD: A study conducted by the Swiss government in 1994 found that, regardless of how devout the mother is, if the father doesn’t attend church, only one child in 50 will become a regular worshiper. However, where the father worships regularly, 75% of the children will continue as churchgoers.

PRAGER U: Intersectionality is the newest fad in political activism. What is it? Who’s involved? And, what does it even mean? Nobody is better prepared to answer these questions than Daily Wire editor-in-chief and podcast sensation, Ben Shapiro. He breaks it all down in this invaluable video.

    I tried to watch this. Couldn’t take more than a minute of this NeverTrumper soyboy’s whiny voice. Might give him a try again in the daylight. Or, might be the first PragerU vid I couldn’t watch.

    Here’s my take on ‘intersectionality.’
