“There is a big difference between feeling thankful & giving thanks. One response involves emotions, the other, your will.” -Joni Eareckson Tada
E COLI OUTBREAK: CDC is advising that U.S. consumers not eat any romaine lettuce, and retailers and restaurants not serve or sell any, until we learn more about the outbreak. This investigation is ongoing and the advice will be updated as more information is available.
BECAUSE SCIENCE: According to Leftists, genitals and chromosomes do not determine a person’s gender. Also, a living, growing, but as-yet-unborn human being is not a baby and climate change is both man-made and a global threat.
MEDIA HACKS: Reporters forced a judge to force the White House to put decades old custom into the form of written rules. And now they’re mad about it.
These rules basically say that the presider chooses who asks a question, the questioner may ask one follow up question, after which the questioner is expected to sit down and shut up.
It’s like kindergarten. I made a sign to post on the wall of the White House press room. Sarah Sanders can be in charge of giving gold stars to reporters who do the best job following them at each presser.
Dan Bongino tweeted to the whiners, “Dear Media Hacks, Please stop humiliating yourselves by pretending you care about politicized ‘justice.’ You’ve disgraced the profession by largely ignoring the police-state tactics used by the Obama administration while kissing the asses of the people involved. We’re over you.”
Greg Gutfeld tweeted, “due process for some guy up for a job? not so much. due process for us, the media: the most important thing on earth.”
PRO-LIFE KENYA: Kenyan medical authorities have banned Marie Stopes, the international abortion provider, from offering any kind of abortion services.
DEMOCRAT WHORES: Rep. Marcia Fudge and Rep. Brian Higgins signed the “no to Pelosi” letter. Now they say they’ll support her. I wonder what that cost Nancy? Or maybe I should wonder what signing the letter in the first place will cost Fudge and Higgins down the road.
WTH: A federal judge has thrown out the case described in the video. In his ruling, he declared that a federal law banning Female Genital Mutilation is unconstitutional.
According to him, the commerce clause bars the federal government from banning the barbaric practice of slicing and dicing a born girl’s clitoris so that she can never enjoy sex. Because there is nothing commercial or economic about FGM. Therfore, the authority to criminalize the practice belongs only to the individual states.
Yet, at the time when almost every state banned abortion, SCOTUS ruled in Roe v. Wade that slicing and dicing unborn baby girls (and boys) to DEATH, is “constitutional” because of some alleged “right to privacy” that isn’t even in the Constitution.
OUR SICK SOCIETY: Most parents would assume that refusing to look at a naked child of the opposite sex goes without saying for any teacher, but a school district in Florida has opted to punish a male physical education teacher for attempting to avoid that situation.
WHEN LEFTISTS DON’T AGREE:Eastern Michigan University’s Women’s Resource Center (WRC) has decided to stop hosting the vulgar play, The Vagina Monologues, because it excludes men and also “women who don’t have vaginas.” Since copyright laws won’t allow them to change the dialogue, the school has chosen to get rid of it.
MOCK-WORTHY: I saw somebody saying that we shouldn’t mock A O-C, because the Left mocked Trump, point being that it can be dangerous to underestimate your political opponents. Yeah, EXCEPT, Trump was a 70 something billionaire; A O-C was a 20 something bar tender. Also, they mocked Trump for stupid things, like how he used “big league” and they thought he was saying “bigly.” A O-C says things that are actually stupid. They’d be stupid for any high school graduate. They’d be stupid for any college graduate. And they’re scary stupid for an incoming member of the House of Representatives.
40th ANNIVERSARY: Sunday was the 40th anniversary of the Jonestown massacre, an event that caused the deaths of about 900 people (about a third of them children) who were killed at the group’s compound in Guyana. One of the many misconceptions about the Jonestown tragedy was that for most of its victims it represented an act of suicide. For some it did, but for many it did not. The children, of course, were not acting for themselves and were incapable of giving consent (some were infants and toddlers). And although the adults had all signed onto the Jim Jones enterprise of their own free will, many (perhaps even most?) had essentially been kept prisoner there against their will, long after the nature of the movement had changed.
