LOYALTY: This saying gets to the heart of the issue better than “You find out who your real friends are when trouble comes into your life.” I’ve had a lot of troubled times and thought the people who were there for me were true friends.

It really hurt that, when things got better for me, they moved on. I finally figured out they hadn’t liked me for me; they had just liked how helping made them feel.

DAN BONGINO SHOW: Ep. 1183 Feb 18, 2020 [1:02:22] – Dan starts off explaining how Trump’s Queens background explains his penchant for exaggeration. Everything is YUGE with The Donald. The Biggest. The Best. Dan says it’s a Queens thing.

Most of the show is after this, when he gets into Alan Dershowitz’s bombshell claim that then-President Obama asked the FBI to investigate somebody because billionaire left-wing financier George Soros personally requested it. This is more evidence that the debunked dossier, the Spygate FISA abuses, the DOJ/FBI’s persecution of Carter Page, Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, and Roger Stone, the Mueller investigation, and the Trump impeachment hoaxes are ALL THE SAME scandal. Their purpose? To distract from slash cover up the fact that the Obama administration was for sale.

Finally, he debunks Obama’s claim that he should get credit for the Trump Economy.

ABORTION: [1:17]The Trump administration took another step to defend unborn babies Wednesday when it announced the formation of a new ethics board to look into the use of aborted baby body parts in government-funded research.

When U.S. Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) was asked how he would vote on the upcoming Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, he laughed and called the question “stupid.

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM: An organization that represents Orthodox Jewish communities in Great Britain have issued a statement saying they will not allow their schools to teach about homosexual and other “lifestyles” that are “prohibited by the Torah.”

The statement was reportedly prompted by recent visits to Jewish schools by government inspectors, who made it clear that primary schools have to teach children about LGBT “equality.”

ASSUME: “I’m an American traveling abroad in the Middle East, and went on a date with an Arab guy. We went to a cafe where the owner, my date’s buddy, asked who I was in Arabic. My date smiled at me sweetly, squeezed my hand, and told his friend in Arabic, ‘An American floozie who I’m going to hook up with later.‘ I kept a stupid, docile smile on my face. When the owner took my order, I told him in Arabic ‘and one tea for the American floozie who he will not sleep with later.‘ The look on both of their faces was priceless. I took a cab home.”

  1. I have tried to listen to the Dan B shows, but I’m afraid I have developed a YouTube short attention (actually patience) span that makes long form talk shows difficult for me. If it takes someone five video minutes to convey something, I can probably scan a transcript in a quarter of the time or less. “Give me snippets or give me text!” Or at least internal indicators (Dan talks about such and such at 3:57.)

    It’s not a complaint or asking you to do more, or anything differently, chrissy. Just noting my own state of mind these days. The more the info deluge has increased, the more I have to shore up levees.

      I feel your pain. I really try to NOT post any videos that are more than 5 minutes. I’ve only learned to listen to Bongino because I took up crocheting. I keep one project out by the couch for t.v. and one in my office for YouTube.

      I’ll try to put in time markers for you. I’m sorry I didn’t think of it myself. It’s an obvious aid.
