YOUNG BLACK LEADERS CONFERENCE: Click on this to see how these young blacks greeted President Trump! I had to turn the sound way down. LOL
PANTS ON FIRE: “Throughout human history, certainly throughout American history, politicians have exaggerated…But what we have not seen before in our recent public life is politicians just blatantly, repeatedly, baldly, shamelessly lying. Making stuff up.” – Utterly blatant, repeated, baldly shameless liar and former president, Barack Obama, October 26, 2018, winner of Politifact’s 2013 Lie of the Year Award for the oft-repeated, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan.” Then there were the infamous claims that ISIS was the “JV Team” and that the Benghazi terror attack was caused by an “Internet video.” Just to name three.
SPEAKING OF LIARS: In a partisan effort to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, NBC News not only published uncorroborated smears against him, but also buried of a legitimate story that backed up Kavanaugh’s innocence and his claim that there was a coordinated campaign at work to personally destroy him.
ULTIMATE TIC TAC TOE: Folks often say Trump is playing 3D chess, but this games guru says he’s actually playing ultimate tic tac toe. I had never heard of the game before, but it’s really interesting (Thanks Mindful Webworker!) The author says, “Ultimate tic-tac-toe is a superbly tidy distillation of the strategy of distraction, delay, misdirection, procrastination and improvisation. This is a game of past and present. While chess offers a singular goal — capture the opponent’s king — ultimate tic-tac-toe offers fluid, shifting goals.” And also, “Playing a few games of ultimate tic-tac-toe makes you feel in your very guts what it’s like to be a close watcher of the last two years of news cycles. (I’d have to assume it feels like that inside the White House, too.)”
CARAVAN: The illegal alien caravans marching to the US border were not spontaneous, grassroots events, but were preplanned and funded by several anti-America borders organizations, including George Soros’s Open Society.
GOSNELL: Changing minds and saving lives. Los Angeles based entrepreneur Patrick Courrielche said the film “singlehandedly changed my mind on abortion.” A group of moms was so moved and motivated by the film that they decided to go and stand at a nearby abortion clinic with their small children. There they met a woman going for an abortion and, with their babies, they inspired her not to go in. Find a theater near you.
MEDICAID APS DOWN: The strengthening economy has resulted in a drop in new Medicaid enrollment applications. I remember when Obama et al. cheered a rise in applications for unemployment benefits and food stamps, so I’m guessing they’re all sad face about this news. Or taking credit for it. I get confused which way we’re supposed to go with them. Is it “bad economy is previous president’s fault” or “persistent bad economy is good” or “good economy is previous president’s blessing upon the nation” or “good economy is bad because people need time to dream.” Libs are really confusing.
EARLY VOTING: At this point two years ago, Democrats held the lead at 45%, with Republicans at 38%, and other at 17%. Today, with almost 200,000 more early votes in, it’s Republicans at 44%, Democrats at 40%, and other at 16%.
GOOD READ: “Americans aren’t fools. They have a good sense of smell when things aren’t right. And one of the things wrong with our country right now is the hollowing out and retooling of all the key words in our country’s public lexicon; words like democracy, representative government, freedom, justice, due process, religious liberty and constitutional protections. The language of our politics is the same. The content of the words is different.” – From an address delivered by Archbishop Chaput at the 2016 Bishops’ Symposium, “Reclaiming the Church for the Catholic Imagination.”
