MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY: The key to success is gratitude. – “If happiness is what you’re after, then you are going to be let down frequently and be unhappy much of your time. Joy though, Joy’s a different thing, it’s something else.”
MICHAEL COHEN TESTIMONY: CNN commentators agreed that the disgraced former attorney for President Trump failed to deliver a definitive takedown. “There were a lot of Democrats today with bags of popcorn expecting to see the crumbling of the Trump presidency,” said host Anderson Cooper, who led the eight-pundit panel discussion.
William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection said, “Cohen’s testimony revealed little legally damaging, but did suggest the roadmap to taking down Trump runs through his businesses not his campaign.”
FACEBOOK BIAS: Shutting down conservative speech – In 2016, conservatives dominated social media where they were able to get the truth uncensored. Then top liberal activist groups — Media Matters, Share Blue, CREW and American Bridge – made it a priority in early 2017 to work with the liberal tech giants to undermine President Trump and ensure that liberals gain control of Congress and the presidency in 2020. The tech giants obliged.
FREEDOM OF SPEECH: Join https://usa.life/ – There is a new, conservative-friendly alternative to Facebook and Twitter.
I HATE SANCTUARY CITIES: In March 2014, a previously deported illegal alien from Honduras, Juan Ramon-Vasquez, was found back in the U.S. by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers. The “sanctuary” City of Philadelphia ignored an ICE detainer and released him back into the community, where he proceeded to repeatedly rape a young child. He is serving a sentence of 8 to 20 years in state prison for the rapes.
EDUCATIONAL MALPRACTICE: Political indoctrination in the public schools – I often wonder if this is the real reason why Democrats are so vehemently opposed to school choice programs.
A New Yorker’s 11-year-old asked him for help with her vocabulary homework, because the only words available forced her to bash President Trump.
Dad told her to leave the spaces blank and wrote this note to the public school teacher … who docked the kid 15 points and emailed him that the media makes similar references to Trump, and that she believes she has the same right.
Yeah, except we can can turn the media off without being penalized!
CATHOLIC LEFT: From Robert Hutchinson at Catholic Vote – “Increasingly, the Catholic Left … has joined the secular “progressive” Left in thinking that all that is necessary is to scream loud enough – and people will be persuaded. They don’t bother to ground their opinions in the principles of Catholic Social Teaching—solidarity, subsidiarity, the common good, etc.”
I’ve been noticing this for a long time. Back when Bush 2 was in office and the Democrats were all hot about the “stupid” war in Iraq (where my kids were deployed), our libtard pastor gave us an article from a left-wing Catholic magazine that we both read carefully. It was all Democrat talking points with zero Catholic teaching; it was also very poorly written, almost incoherent in places.
When we tried to give her information from our side, she turned away, shook her head, sneered. I bought some excellent books for her, which I could not truly afford. She emailed me a snarky thank you that said she doubted she’d ever look at any of them. I wrote back and asked her to pass them on to someone who would. I’m guessing they went in her circular file.
When the parish military families had a meeting about the issue, the multi-parish priest came and so did some of the liberal parishioners. They really listened to and heard our point of view. One said she had never heard the things we said before. Our leftie on-site pastor took herself off to a neighboring uber liberal parish for a prayer service for peace.
