DOG saved baby

TUCKED IN TUESDAYS: An elementary school principal in Beaumont, TX, takes to Facebook live every Tuesday night to read a bedtime story to her students. “Kids will come up to me Wednesday and say, ‘Dr. George, I saw you in your PJs reading!'”, she said. “They’ll tell me their favorite part of the book.”

TRUMP APPROVAL: This should be giving 2020 Dem hopefuls indigestion.

Border crisis

BORDER: Illegal aliens are incarcerated as much as FIVE TIMES the rate of legal residents.


Tax returns

TAX CUTS: Tax refunds are not a useful metric for evaluating tax burden.
Not that Democrats cared when preliminary data made it look like they were down this year so they could boo about the Republican tax cuts.
They’ll have to shut up about that now. It turns out that, compared to last year, average refunds are 1.3% higher.

WHY MICHAEL COHEN FLIPPED ON TRUMP: According to close friend and “black prop”, Lynne Patton –

The ONLY reason Michael Cohen “turned on” the President of the United States is because Mueller threatened to throw his wife in jail for up to 30 years. Period. She is the co-guarantor of a $20M personal loan that Mueller discovered Michael secured back in 2015 by falsely inflating the value of his taxi medallions – effectively making her part & parcel to the federal charge of “Making False Statements to a Financial Institution,” to which Cohen ultimately plead guilty. This is also the reason why Cohen’s longtime taxi medallion partner, Evgeny “Gene” Freidman, was granted immunity.

Dearest and I were discussing this just yesterday when we were talking about how Cohen’s testimony failed to produce any of the “bombshells” Democrats were hoping for. We concluded Cohen had flipped on Trump and agreed to jail time in order to spare his family from Mueller’s vicious persecution. Michael Flynn said something similar. So have other of Mueller’s many victims. Mueller is a really bad man.

CLINTON DIRT: According to Gateway Pundit, the DOJ/FBI suppressed a 2016 DOJ criminal investigation that involved a major NY Democratic power broker and the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation.

The investigation revolved around the illegal sale of controlled US Homeland Security technology to Russia and China in the years before the 2016 election by a company named AGT.

It’s all too complicated for my teeny tiny brain. But if you’re intrigued, here’s the link.

If anyone cares to write this up for PN, let me know.

REBELLION: Twenty-six Democrats defied Pelosi – They voted with Republicans to pass an amendment during a vote on gun control legislation requiring any illegal aliens found during one of these background checks be reported to ICE. The amendment ended up passing 220-209.

Listen to Crenshaw about how stupid this bill is. It passed the House, but the Senate will likely vote it down. And if not, Trump will definitely veto it.

2d AMENDMENT TAKES PRECEDENCE: Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis wants Maryland lawmakers to know he will not comply with any bill that restricts a person’s Second Amendment right.

Bert Ernie Bernie

2020 THE BERN: Sanders has reportedly hired an illegal “dreamer” for his new press secretary. She’s a dedicated Socialist whose family fled Socialist Argentina when she was six. She also has a potty mouth. IOW, she’s the perfect New Democrat.

  1. I’ve been building up to this for a while. Now I have a

    slack moment on Saturday, so pardon my unleashing a tech


    Regarding YouTube vs FaceBook video embeds…

    Playing: YouTube video, just click. FB vid start muted,

    so, press play, press pause, un-mute, rewind that tiny

    bit, hit play again. Every. Video. Every. Time.

    Alternatively, hit play and then unmute and miss the start

    of the clip. Can’t unmute first then play. AFAIK.

    Don’t know about you, but Facebook videos seem to take

    longer to load than other videos.

    With YouTube videos, page space (the embed’s height) is

    pre-allocated before the clip displays. With FaceBook

    videos, page space is opened up when the clip loads, which

    is late. The difference is, if I’m reading down the page

    from the video, the screen suddenly, annoyingly scrolls.

    My browser can have a pop-out on-top player for YouTube

    playing, and some other platforms, but not with FB.

    These last two items are browser-specific perhaps, but may

    not be fixable given the way FB does embeds, versus


    There’s other things. YouTube vids offer a right-click

    menu of possibile actions, Facebook not so much.

    In short, Facebook videos are kinda annoying. They do

    contain framing information (above and below the vid), but

    I find that more annoying than useful.

    I understand the idea of starving the Goggle monster. But

    the fact is the Goggle monster is just one head of the

    Silicon Valley Liberal Control Freaks Hydra. Facebook and

    Twitter are no better, maybe worse in some ways at this

    point. Not sure choosing FB over YT is all that


    A further consideration is, some YouTube vids have not

    been de-monetized, so you might be depriving content

    creators of a few pennies; I have no idea what revenue

    arrangements Facebookers have.

    FYI IMHO and YMMV 😉

      I’m using Facebook primarily, because that’s where my social network is based. But I have an account at USA Life, which I intend to check daily for news items that don’t make it to the other places I check.
