There are THIRTY turkeys in my back yard right now! THIRTY! They look young, like they’re probably all summer 2018 hatchlings who haven’t paired off yet.

TRUMPS VISIT TROOPS: President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump made history on Wednesday as the first First Couple to travel together to a war zone to meet the troops.

OTHER FIRSTS FOR OUR GRACIOUS FLOTUS:

  • First First Lady to have been born without birthright citizenship. (Louisa Adams was born in London, but her father was an American citizen. All the others were born in the U.S.)
  • First First Lady whose first language is not English. Besides her native Slovene, she also speaks English, German, Italian, and French.
  • First First Lady to have had a successful career as a fashion model.

TRUMP ECONOMY: Retailers had their best Christmas shopping season in six years.

THIS SHOULD BE ABOUT BORDER SECURITY: Not partisan bickering — On Saturday, Democrats rejected a White House proposal that reduced President Trump’s $5 billion demand for a border wall and offered flexibility on just how solid the wall needed to be. A recent poll shows 84% of Republicans support Trump on this vs. 87% of Democrats oppose Trump on this.

LATINO REPUBLICANS: Dems consider Latinos “their” peeps — But 32% of them voted for Republicans last November. Apparently, they’re not all thrilled with the Democrats’ shift on immigration.

ILLEGAL MURDERS CA COP: Cpl. Ronil Singh, 33, was shot during a traffic stop on Wednesday. He leaves behind a wife and 5 month old son. There is a manhunt on for the “armed and dangerous” suspect who is in our country illegally.

24,000 CHILDREN IN FIRST 3 WEEKS OF DECEMBER: Democrat policies encourage this risky, sometimes fatal behavior — Two of the 24,000 died not long after Border Patrol took them into custody, despite receiving medical care. Those two were brought illegally by their fathers. One of those fathers had allowed his child to become severely dehydrated; the other refused medical treatment for his obviously sick child. Many of the children who have arrived at the border have been unnaccompanied by an adult.

MEDIA BIAS: Just one of the most puke-making moments from 2018 — “When I hear a statement like that –  read a statement like that from Barack Obama  – who is, as we’ve said, an introspective and thoughtful and very wise man – and a brilliant writer. And he says something like ‘maybe I came along 20 years too soon,’ my reaction to that is: What do you mean? Which is to say, I cannot possibly fill in the paragraph that, that is the first sentence of, if it is spoken by Barack Obama because his mind is too supple, too complex, too rich compared to my own to fill out what the rest of that thought is.”

MOTHER JONES: Mad at Ruth — SCOTUS Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who will turn 86 in March, was hospitalized twice in 2018. When she fell in November and fractured three ribs, cancerous growths were found in her lungs; they were recently removed and she has been released from the hospital. Mother Jones says, “No amount of swag or hagiography can obscure the fact that, while Ginsburg is responsible for a great number of landmark legal decisions, her legacy may be sorely tarnished by one truly terrible one: refusing to retire when President Barack Obama could have named her replacement.” Obviously, Ruth believed all the hype about how Hillary was sure to win.
