BORDER: President Trump’s top health official on Monday defended the administration’s treatment of migrant children at border detention facilities, blasting the use of the term “concentration camps.”

“I think some of this verbiage is just really outrageous,” Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar said during an interview Monday on Fox News.

“We’ve got professional men and women at the Department of Homeland Security who are doing their best to deal with a catastrophic border crisis. It would be more productive to get them  funding,” Azar said.

SANCTUARY: In the Democrat Dictionary, it’s code for “protecting rapists and murderers” – ICE’s Deputy Director of the Seattle Field Office, Bryan Wilcox, says Washington state’s sanctuary law is putting lives in jeopardy.

Consequently, his office has issued a press release exposing seven cases in which the sanctuary law has resulted in serious harm done to citizens.

In each case, ICE had requested a detainer on a criminal illegal alien who was being held in a local jail. Per the sanctuary law, those requests were ignored, the illegals were released into the community where they committed violent crimes.

ØBAMACARE: President Donald Trump has signed an executive order he says will do a lot to drive the price of health care down.

It directs the Department of Health and Human Services to “empower patients with the information they need to search for the lowest cost and highest quality care.”

HHS Secretary Alex Azar outlined five points in the order, which will translate into rules drafted by HHS:

1. To require hospitals to publish prices reflecting what patients and insurers pay.

2. To require health care providers and insurers to tell patients about out-of-pocket costs before they receive services.

3. To simplify how federal health care programs measure quality.

4. To protect patient privacy as the administration examines health care claims data.

5. To direct the Treasury Department to expand how patients can use health savings accounts.

TUCKER CARLSON: Talking about the Project Veritas interview exposing Google’s dark underbelly. [5:56]

Doublethink: A term originated in Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell – Simultaneously accepting as true two beliefs which are contradictory to one another.

Ironically, I just read this word and concept discussed at the end a very compelling book I just finished – Counterfeit Dreams: One Man’s Journey Into and Out of the World of Scientology by Jefferson Hawkins.

For 35 years, Hawkins worked as a top marketing executive for the Church of Scientology. His autobiography exposes the hidden world of physical and mental abuse, sleep deprivation, labor camps, family disconnection, human rights abuses, and doublethink.

SOCIAL MEDIA BIAS: Tucker mentions this move by Ravelry, a social networking and e-commerce platform for fiber artists.

Based in Boston, it caters to knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, and dyers … unless they happen to support President Trump.

I won’t be joining.

PROJECT VERITAS vs. GOOGLE: Undercover video shows Google’s Head of Responsible Innovation, Jen Gennai, saying Google has been working diligently to “prevent” the results of the 2016 election from repeating in 2020.

In a delicious irony, the exposé has forced Gennai to delete her Twitter account.

GOOGLE ANSWERS CRUZ: This video – “Senator Cruz Grills Google Executive Over Insider Story” — is up now, but I won’t be surprised if YouTube (owned by Google) pulls it down. It’s also posted at the Project Veritas website, URL below. [2:18]

PROJECT VERITAS: One of the many Google documents exposed by a whistleblowing Google employee appears to show member of a Google group called “transparency-and-ethics” advocating for having certain individuals such as Shapiro, Peterson, PragerU, and others removed from the “suggestion feature” based on some bizarre notion that these people are, you know, like practically Nazis.

ABORTION: Irish doctors say no – The OB-GYNs at St. Luke’s Hospital in Kilkenny, Ireland, sent local doctors a letter saying that they had “decided unanimously” that their hospital is “not an appropriate location for medical or surgical terminations.”

They assured physicians they will continue to provide life-saving care to pregnant women who are suffering from emergency complications, such as sepsis or hemorrhaging.

After learning about the letter, abortion activists quickly called on the government to force the doctors and staff at St. Luke’s to abort unborn babies.

RHODE ISLAND: Democrat Gov. Gina M. Raimondo signed into law an abortion bill that codifies at the state level the abortion “status quo that has existed” since Roe v. Wade. Raimondo claims to be a Catholic.
