Today’s highly interesting read (07/17/19): The Arrogance And The Ignorance

Image result for image, photo, picture, the squad, congresswoman

Today’s read comes from Derek Hunter, a Washington, DC based writer, radio host and political strategist.

When they were spending their time attacking Republicans, Democrats weren’t bothered. What’s an embarrassing anti-Semitic comment orquoting a Nazi sympathizer (of having your chief of staff wearing a shirt glorifying a Nazi collaborator,as AOC’s did) when their vitriol is directed toward Republicans? Sycophantic journalists, who use their preferred nickname “The Squad,” either ignored or defended these “misunderstandings.” It’s all fun and games when your enemies are taking all the fire.

But Frankenstein’s monster always returns to the castle and destroys it.

Today’s highly interesting read (07/16/19): Trump’s Bold Truth-Telling About ‘The Squad’ Makes Free Speech Great Again

Firestorm!

“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done.”
Tweet by President Trump referring to four female House members of color

Cue the critics.

John Nolte at Breitbart has today’s read:

The truth is that Trump never brought up skin color, gender, or “people of color,” which means there was nothing racist about his tweets. Nothing nativist. Nothing xenophobic. His tweets focused on only one thing: behavior — the appalling behavior of the harridans, their indefensible bigotry, their open hatred of Jews, their unforgivable use of equivalence to compare the American military to al Qaeda and our border enforcement to Nazi concentration camps, their un-American crusade to prioritize illegal immigrants over American citizens and legal immigrants.

Trump told the truth. Trump defended America. This is what a president is supposed to do.

Today’s highly interesting read (07/15/19): I went to the border to help people. Members of Congress were shocked when I asked them to help, too

Today’s read is from Abby Johnson is the director of And Then There Were None, which helps abortion workers leave their jobs and find life-affirming ones. She’s also the author of “Unplanned”, which has been made into a feature film of the same name.

Rep. Vincente Gonzalez, D-Texas, who donated $1,000 to the center, according to the monitor, walked by our 18-wheeler as we were just getting ready to start unloading and we asked him again to help.

With a dismissive wave of his hand, he smugly said “I’ll send someone” and then walked to his air-conditioned car and left. No one from his office came to help. Are you surprised?

Today’s read is from Dallas radio talk show host Mark Davis. Here’s an excerpt:

It requires a concerted effort to take a moment of triumph and turn it into a seething fountain of bad blood. But that’s exactly what our supposed “national team” has done on the world stage following a dominant victory in the Women’s World Cup.

This week should be a united exercise in American celebration, a wave of gratitude from the public to these young ladies who have played so well at the world’s most popular sport. Their return from France should have been an opportunity for them to inspire us with their national pride and personal grace, just as they impressed us with their spectacular play against the world’s best women’s soccer teams.

But that’s not what happened.

Instead…

CNBC spoke with Johnson.

“I think at the end of the day, if a Democrat is going to beat Trump, then that person, he or she, will have to move to the center and you can’t wait too long to do that.”

There’s more. You can read it here.

Today’s highly interesting read (07/09/19): Kamala Is Dead Wrong on Busing

Before the read, take a look at some letters to the editor of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, December 29, 1983.

Now, remember this exchange in the recent Democratic debate?

Instead of forcefully denouncing busing, Biden folded like an accordion, and later he even apologized.

George Mitchell has today’s read.

In advance of a visit to the state, she (Harris) might read up on the Milwaukee’s disastrous experience with busing to desegregate the schools, a failed “progressive” policy carried out to the distinct disadvantage of black families.

It’s been two decades since citizens reached a consensus that Milwaukee’s forced busing program was a failure.

Today’s highly interesting read (07/08/19): Humor the cure for what ails America

I’m not sure how This Just In… missed this a week ago, but July 1 was International Joke Day. No kidding.

Before we get to today’s read, here’s a clip from a 1962 episode of “The Dick Van Dyke Show” where Dick’s brother, Jerry Van Dyke appears. Dick is Rob, the variety TV show writer. Jerry is Stacey.

Here’s the story from one of the best comedy TV show series ever. Stacey wants to be a comedian. But he has a bit of a problem.  When Stacey is awake and tries to show Rob his act, he’s terrible.

But then the episode shifts to a party Rob and his wife Laura (Mary Tyler Moore) are throwing later that day. After Stacey falls asleep he bursts out of his room and offers to entertain.

Which leads to today’s read from one of my favorites, humor columnist Tom Purcell.

The backlash was swift.

Was it ever.
