GARY SINISE: “Grateful American:A Journey from Self to Service” – Gary Sinise is well known not only for playing Lieutenant Dan in the 1994 movie “Forrest Gump”, but also for his tremendous support for our military. In 2010, he was confirmed into the Catholic Church.
NO COLLUSION: Both Republicans and Democrats agree that, after two years and 200 interviews, the Senate Intelligence Committee has found nothing to suggest the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.
The media’s take on this is, “But they haven’t found any evidence exonerating Trump either!” So there! Apparently, there are two standards for justice now.
- “Innocent until proven guilty” for Democrats.
- “Guilty unless proven innocent” for Republicans.
THE MOST CORRUPT PRESIDENT EVER: From Joe Hoft at Gateway Pundit – “As layers of information are uncovered and unscrambled, the facts behind the Russia collusion scam come to light. As the light begins to shine on the truth, a silhouette of former President Barack Hussein Obama appears.” Read the rest here.
9th CIRCUIT AGREES WITH TRUMP: Who woulda thunk?!?! – California Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed a lawsuit alleging that President Donald Trump’s proposal to expedite construction of a wall at the southern border violates environmental laws. The 9th “circus” court said nope, it doesn’t. Even more juicily ironic, they cited a law signed by BILL CLINTON to justify their ruling. Up until now, border efforts have been focused on repairing and upgrading bad fending. But last week, we began building the first new barriers in places that previously were unprotected.
FAKE NEWS: CNN lied – For weeks, we have been hearing CNN claim again and again that their presence at Roger Stone’s home ahead of the FBI’s pre-dawn raid was a combination of “luck” and good reporting. Evidence now points to the “shocking” revelation that the FBI colluded with CNN to taint the jury pool with film of the absurd, heavily armed, 29-member, FBI strike force that showed up at Stone’s home to arrest him on non-violent process crimes.
MEDIA OOPSIE: “USA Today ran a surprising story on Tuesday headlined ‘Can the middle-class revival under Trump last?’ It’s surprising — shocking really — because it might just be the first time a major news outlet has admitted that there has been a middle-class revival under Trump,” the Investor’s Business Daily editorial board writes. “It’s a safe bet that had a Democrat been in the White House over the past two years things would be different.”
CA CANCELS HIGH SPEED RAIL: AOC’s Green New Deal calls for building so much high speed rail there would be no need for airplane travel. But high speed rail projects have repeatedly been utter failures. California just canceled their proposed line from LA to Frisco after the projected cost ballooned to $77 billion. Yeah, billion … with a B. The whole high-speed rail boondoggle was subsidized with billions in tax dollars and President Trump says, if California is giving up on the train, then they should give the money back.
WORD NERD: The Greek word phōnē means “sound” or “voice.”
- Euphony = Sweet sound (with the Greek prefix eu- meaning “good”).
- Cacophony = Harsh sound (with the Greek prefix kak- meaning “bad”).
- Symphony = Harmonious sound (with the Greek prefix syn- meaning “together”).
- Polyphony = Two or more independent melodies juxtaposed in harmony (with the Greek prefix poly- meaning “many”).
