OUR AWESOME FIRST LADY: The media ignores her good works — Last year, when Mrs. Trump traveled to Texas to comfort and support the people affected by hurricanes, the media focused on the pair of heels she wore to board Air Force One. When Mrs. Trump invited children from a local Boys and Girls club to help plant vegetables in the White House garden that her predecessor started, the media just talked about the cost of her shirt and the fact that her shoes were clean. The list goes on and on and on.
UNPLANNED: The movie — The actress playing Abby Johnson tells her story. Grab a tissue.
THE VIRTUE OF NATIONALISM: Good borders make good neighbors — Political elites would have you believe this is dangerous, because HITLER! But Hitler was no nationalist. He was an imperialist who wanted all nations ruled by one, all-powerful government. If you care about freedom, you should support nationalism.
WEAPONIZING THE DOJ: Twisting the law to get Trump — Michael Cohen pled guilty to something that is not against the law. “Trump had many valid, non-electoral reasons for trying to keep these allegations quiet, most notably family harmony, protecting family members (especially his young son, Baron), and preserving his future viability as a television personality in case he lost the election. Indeed, it is quite probable that many of those now baying for Trump’s scalp for illegal campaign contributions would be leading a charge to prosecute Trump for illegal ‘personal use’ of campaign funds had he made the payments from his campaign treasury.” — Bradley Smith at National Review
DIRTY COP MUELLER: Nothing to see here — On Thursday the IG published a bombshell report regarding the now-infamous anti-Trump sentiment shared between two key members of the FBI and of the Mueller investigation team, Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page. The IG report reveals not only that both Strzok’s and Page’s iPhones were wiped clean and restored to factory settings by a member of Mueller’s team but that Strzok’s iPhone was then reissued to another agent for use.
ANTIFA THUGS: At one point in the hearing, one of the defense attorneys referred to the incident as a “tussle.” The judge said, “This isn’t like kids at a playground” and ruled that the two ringleaders be held for trial on felony aggravated assault and felony conspiracy charges.
CHICAGO DAVID 1: Goliath 0 — Pete posted a while back about how the powerful Madigan mob got college student David Krupa kicked off the ballot. Krupa needed 473 valid signatures of ward residents to get on the ballot. After he filed 1,729 signatures with the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners, Madigan’s operatives went door to door collecting revocations of those signatures. The Board of Elections kicked Krupa off the ballot. Enter Krupa’s lawyer, who demonstrated that only 187 of the 2,796 Madigan’s thugs filed actually matched signatures on Krupa’s petitions. This left him well ahead of the 473 he needed AND put 2,609 fraudulent revocation signers at risk of felony charges. The latest update is that the Madigan machine backed down and Krupa is back on the ballot. He is the first candidate to challenge Madigan’s toadies in the 13th Ward since 1991. Krupa’s attorney wants the state’s attorney to investigate. So far, she hasn’t lifted a finger.
NO MO’ NET NEUTRALITY: One year later –– A year ago, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai killed the Obama-era Internet rule that required service providers to treat each piece of content identically. GLAAD said it was an attack on the LGBTQ community. (Huh?) Bernie Sanders said it would result in the internet being for sale to the highest bidder. Planned Parenthood predicted blocked websites and inaccessible information. But like Algore’s doom and gloom predictions about the polar caps, they were all wrong. Today, the internet is as strong as ever … and speeds are 36% faster across the county.
MAGNESIUM AND VITAMIN D: Because enzymes that synthesize and metabolize vitamin D are magnesium dependent, a human trial was done to see if magnesium supplementation had a positive affect on vitamin D in the body. It did.
THE PLANET ADAPTS: Great Coral Reef not doomed by warmer temperatures –– Don’t tell Algore. He still thinks the polar ice caps have melted.
MIKA: Prepare to roll your eyes — Mika Brzezinski apologized to the LGBT community and to her colleagues for call Secretary of State Mike Pompeo a “butt boy.” She did not apologize to Mike Pompeo.
BABYLON BEE: Illegal incursion problem SOLVED — Prominent signs along our border saying “Beware of Trump. Keep Out.” have reduced illegal crossing attempts by 428%.
