PRAGER U: Navy Seal (Ret.) and best-selling author, Jocko Willink, offers some hard-learned, practical advice to get you on the road to personal fulfillment and success – and keep you there.
- Key One: Discipline – It is the path to freedom.
- Key Two: Stay Humble – Doing menial jobs well will open the door to opportunity.
- Key Three: Take Ownership of Everything – Cast no blame.
JUDICIARY: While you were distracted by [insert news cycle], Trump has been reshaping the federal judiciary – As of May 13, 2019, the Senate has confirmed two Trump nominees to SCOTUS, 39 to Courts of Appeals, and 63 to District/Specialty Courts. There are still 158 vacancies to be filled.
EQUALITY ACT: Douglas Laycock is a liberal law professor at the University of Virginia. Although a longtime supporter of same-sex marriage, he does not support the Equality Act. The House just approved this bill which would add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.” Laycock says if it is enacted, it would “crush” conscientious objectors, particularly conservative religious believers. We must pray this evil act does not make it past the Senate and that we will regain control of the House in 2020.
ALABAMA ABORTION BAN: Alabama Governor Kay Ivey doesn’t care what Hollywood celebrities think about her decision to sign into law the most restrictive abortion law in the country. But at least Jim Carey’s image is accurate right down to the abortionist’s cannula suctioning out the brain matter of the fetus. Inquiring minds wonder why Twitter hasn’t banned it. Oh wait. No we don’t.
ABORTION SATIRE: “Pro-choicer Jack Ripper, in a statement scrawled in blood on an alley wall, told reporters, ‘We’ve tried everything to get the pro-lifers to come over to our side. We’ve punched them, threatened to rape their children, torn down their signs and screamed in their faces but we somehow can’t get them to see reason. It’s obvious they are racist because many aborted children would have grown up to be black and experience prejudice so it’s much better to stick a needle in their hearts and then tear them limb from limb as anyone can plainly see if they enjoy doing that sort of thing.’”
ALYSSA MILANO: Hugely hypocritical – Alyssa Milano recently tweeted that everyone should, “Stop calling [anti-abortion bills] ‘heartbeat’ bills and call them ‘fetal pole cardiac activity’ bills.”
- In January, 2017, she tweeted a picture of her son on her lap and labeled it, “My heartbeat.”
- In November, 2017, she sent out a Thanksgiving tweet featuring a photo of herself with her son, his younger sister, and I presume their baby daddy saying, “#IAmThankfulFor these children and ALL children who have touched my life throughout my journey. Children are my heartbeat. I will continue to fight for equality, opportunity, and a child’s right to a healthy, productive, happy, childhood.
TUCKER CARLSON: With Mark Steyn – Talking about the sneering elites who hate President Trump and the unwashed rabble who elected him.
CUMMINGS: Ethics watchdog group accuses him of pay-to-play – Rep. Elijah Cummings (MD-D) is chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. When he and his current wife married in 2008, Elijah Cummings was heavily in debt — in part due to hefty child support payments to his first wife and two other baby mamas.
His financial situation has improved considerably over the past decade and, funnily enough, a charity run by his current wife has received millions from special interest groups and corporations that have had business before her husband’s committee.
MEDIA MALPRACTICE: The MSM has labeled this “keep on moving, nothing to see here” – Emanuel K. Samson has been indicted on 43 counts, including first-degree murder, aggravated assault and civil rights intimidation, in the 2017 mass shooting at an Antioch church. Three reasons why the media is ignoring his trial:
- Samson is black;
- His victims were white;
- His goal was to murder a minimum of 10 white churchgoers; and,
- He was stopped by a white redneck who took a bullet when he rushed and tackled.
You KNOW that if the skin colors were reversed, this would be ALL OVER the morning, noon, and nightly news.
AL GORE-ACLE: In 2007, former Vice President Al Gore accepted the Nobel Peace Prize for making An Inconvenient Truth, a documentary full of lies that made Gore filthy rich while inciting nightmares in an entire generation of children.
- During his acceptance speech, he assured us that all the Arctic sea-ice would have melted away by the year 2013.
- In 2008, just one year after his pronouncement, the Arctic sea-ice began a period of expansion that has not yet peaked.
In other loony leftie news, the British rag, The Guardian, has directed its staff to use “climate emergency” or “climate crisis” instead of “climate change” in its news stories.
CATHOLICISM vs. CALIFORNIA: If passed, it will put an end to face-to-face confession in California – A California bill to force priests to break the seal of the confessional if they learn of possible child abuse has been amended. Yet the bill as amended still violates the confessional. Archbishop Jose Gomez of Los Angeles said the legislation remains “an unacceptable violation of our religious freedoms that will do nothing to protect children.”
BILL MAHER IS NOT FUNNY: Catholicism is NOT a cult. While I grant you that some characteristics of a cult can be somewhat or barely marginally applied to the Roman Catholic Church, but these aren’t even close – Isolation; Love Bombing; Special Knowledge; Indoctrination; Salvation; Group Think; Cognitive Dissonance; Shunning; Appearance Standards. See https://carm.org/signs-practices-of-a-cult.
GREG GUTFELD IS FUNNY: Let’s all the useful, productive members of society (aka, The Nobodies of America) have a celebrity strike!
AUSTRALIA: Working class voters delivered a win to conservatives in Australia, shocking the pundits who were SURE the progressive Labor Party couldn’t lose.
