Today’s read is from Catholic League president Bill Donohue. Here’s a brief excerpt.
USA Today is on a tear against the Catholic Church. Last month it published a 3700-word-story on efforts by the bishops to fight discriminatory legislation. Now it has unloaded again, this time indicting the Church in a 6226-word-story for not tracking former priests accused of sexual abuse.
What it found is hardly startling.

The update on this Veterans Day…
Today’s read is from a Charleston newspaper.
She started in secret. And it took seven years to finish.
Mary Whyte crisscrossed the United States in search of veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces. The artist had in mind something big.
“I will go to all 50 states, and I will paint a portrait of America,” she told herself.

The update: I am incredibly happy to post this update. Today (Thursday) President Trump presented the Presidential Citizens Medal posthumously to veteran Rick Rescorla. Rescorla, who was head of security at Morgan Stanley, is credited with saving thousands of lives when he implemented emergency evacuation procedures during the September 11, 2001 attacks.
Rescorla finally got his due.
On average, 20 service members and veterans die by suicide each day.
Normally Tom Purcell is a humor columnist. Not this time.
Like or dislike President Trump, in March he issued an executive order, the President’s Roadmap to Empower Veterans and End the National Tragedy of Suicide (PREVENTS). It requires government agencies to collect better research; establish better, more aggressive prevention methods; and collaborate with local-level organizations to get veterans the services they need.
Each of us can help, too.

The Washington Nationals were honored at the White House this week.
Now to the ‘important lesson.’
Today’s read is from freelance writer Saritha Prabhu.
As a voter who lives far away from the Beltway bubble, I increasingly find myself harboring an uncomfortable secret: I like Donald Trump, and think he’s the perfect president for these times.
Now, I know that’s a big no-no. In fact, I probably should keep it to myself. After all, the mainstream media has been working non-stop to make me and countless others hate the president and see him as Public Enemy No. 1.
(But) Enumerating the reasons Trump is alright is especially necessary because of the constant vituperation he faces everyday from different liberal quarters.

The Washington Examiner has some excerpted quotes including:
“To my siblings, Eric, Ivanka, Tiffany, and Barron: Only you can understand the craziness we have experienced in the last three years. We learned who our true friends are, and we learned the viciousness of fake news. Nothing could have prepared us for the lies. We are Trumps, we don’t play the victim card, and we will succeed here as well. We are in this together.”
And Breitbart.com has this exclusive:
These days it isn’t just wild mobs of Twitter users who coordinate to take down conservatives; it’s the heads of the social media companies themselves. They ban the accounts of conservatives for fraudulent charges of hate speech, hide our posts via algorithms that no one understands, and write their terms and conditions to excuse the casual racism and violence of the left. In this day and age, when social media are the new public square, this “shadow banning” amounts to a complete suppression of freedom of speech. It can’t be allowed to continue.
