MEDIA BIAS: A recent poll by Axios asked, “How often do you think news sources report news they know to be fake, false, or purposely misleading?” Respondents who said “a lot” or “sometimes” included:
- Overall: 72%
- Democrats: 53%
- Independents: 79%
- Republicans: 92%
PRO-ABORTS LOSING A VOTE: While retiring Justice Kennedy, 81, has been a noted swing vote on the court, he has always upheld Roe v. Wade. Catholic Vote says all of President Trump’s 25 picks would be good-for-life judges and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has promised Senate hearings before election day in November. Two other pro-abort justices are getting up there in age. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 84. Justice Stephen Breyer is 78. Trump has predicted he’ll be able to nominate four justices before his first term ends. The Left is going insane and it is bee-yoo-ti-full!
OCTOBER SURPRISE FOR DEMOCRATS: The Gosnell Movie is finally coming out. It will appear on more than 750 big screens on October 12, 2018. I.e., BEFORE the midterms. Between this and the Kennedy retirement, I think we’re gonna need a lot of popcorn for the midterm election lollapalooza. Speaking of which, Dearest told me the voting turn-out for the Democrat primaries in NYS was in the pathetic 4-8% range. I’ve seen predictions for election day turn-out in the 40% range, which is high for midterms. I guess Dems don’t care who they run, just so long as it says D by their names.
HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD WEEK: Besides Kennedy’s announcement, SCOTUS also hit Lefties with a bunch of decisions they couldn’t like. And in California, U.S. District Judge William Alsup tossed out climate change lawsuits that the cities of Oakland and San Francisco filed last fall against six fossil fuel giants. He wrote that it wasn’t fair to “place the blame for global warming on those who supplied what we demanded.”
WHERE WAS THIS WOMAN’S RIGHT TO LIFE? A Queens abortionist who butchered a woman during a late-term abortion, then sent her home to die, has pleaded guilty to criminally negligent manslaughter. He may spend less than a year in jail. I’m not holding my breath waiting for the MSM or Democrat pols to start shrieking about this heartless man who ripped a viable baby out of its mother’s womb and then let her bleed to death.
MEGAN MCARDLE REFUTES “TRUMP IS HITLER” MEME: “You think Trump is Hitler? What’s your mental model for how Trump prevents the 2020 election from happening, thus depriving us of our democracy? Let’s say Trump cancels the election. What happens? 50 states just say, ‘Yup, well, the president has spoken, guess we can’t have an election this year.’ Courts are like, ‘Welp, I guess he’s just king now!’ The FBI rolls over and turns into his secret police. The army arrests dissenters. You think Trump has that kind of base of support in American institutions? Weimar Germany had an incredibly stupid article in its constitution that allowed the president to essentially rule by decree, unhindered. Also, its democracy was less than a generation old. We’re just not in that situation.”
MAGA: Since President Trump signed tax cuts into law, American money is flowing back into America’s heartland. “Over $300 billion was repatriated to the U.S. in the first quarter, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) — the most on record.”
MAGA: “America is open for business. Most significantly, America is open for small business. Trump is the most supportive small business leader the nation has seen in recent memory.” FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon
MAGA: “The United States is now producing enough natural gas and other fuels to be on the verge of energy independence. This positive development is untying the hands of our elected leadership, and enabling it to conduct foreign policy in a way that advances this Nation and its allies’ interests.” – Energy Secretary Rick Perry
NATIONALIZED KILLING: For years, nurses and patients’ families have demanded one of Britain’s NHS hospitals be investigated for widespread, lethal abuse of dangerous medications. A study has now shown that, between 1989 and 2000, this hospital ended or shortened the lives of hundreds of patients via medications that were not clinically indicated or justified. One doctor was cited in particular, but also the nursing staff seems to have been involved. The patients “most likely to get the treatment appeared to be not the sickest, but the most ‘difficult’. As the stepson of one of the victims remarked: ‘If a nurse didn’t like you, you were a goner.’”
