President Trump held a rally last night in Louisiana. There’s a report on it at the link, along with video of his entire speech.  As expected, he had some choice things to say about the people trying to impeach him.  But perhaps his most memorable and succinct comment, and one that would make a great campaign slogan for 2020, was this:

“We did nothing wrong, and they’re doing nothing.”

-----------------------------------------

An American-born woman who quit college and left the US to travel to Syria and join ISIS (according to the linked story, she also “promoted the group's ideology on social media and called on Muslims to commit attacks in America, such as drive-by shootings and attempts to assassinate former President Barack Obama") has now repudiated the terrorist group and wants to come home to her family in Alabama. They sued to try to force the US to let her back in. 

But a judge has dismissed the lawsuit, ruling that she was never a US citizen in the first place because her father was a UN diplomat from Yemen, and children of diplomats are not granted automatic US citizenship.

While that’s a convenient O. Henry twist, it still leaves unanswered the larger question raised by this case: Why should the United States be forced to let anyone back inside our borders who voluntarily left so that they could GO TO SYRIA AND JOIN ISIS and who advocated terrorist attacks and assassinating the President? 

While I’m sure she’d rather be in Alabama than in a Syrian refugee camp, she should count her blessings that at least she’s still alive, unlike the countless victims of the organization she left here to join.  If she wants to come to America, then she can apply for citizenship.  Get in line behind all the applicants who didn’t join ISIS. 

 

 ----------------------------------------

 

If you live in a rural area instead of in a city, then you deserve to be bashed and shamed because you’re “bad people who have made bad life decisions.”  There shouldn’t be subsidies to help you have affordable health care or broadband service because it “should be uncomfortable” not to move to a city and live a “more efficient” lifestyle.

That slice of bigoted idiocy appeared recently on Twitter, posted by a self-described "Graduate Student Instructor at University of California." I’ll be kinder than he is and not mention his name, particularly since he got his head handed to him so decisively that he’s since deleted the tweet and even disappeared from Twitter.  At this link, Megan Fox has the full story, and her own rebuttal on behalf of the self-reliant people who do the farming and ranching and mining and drilling and fishing that allows self-involved twerps like the coddled college kid to live their cushy urban lifestyles.

https://pjmedia.com/trending/rural-americans-are-bad-people-who-deserve-to-be-shamed-says-berkeley-instructor/

I’d just add that if he doesn’t like having to subsidize services for rural dwellers, then how about if they pay for them by charging $100 for a pound of kale?  Or $500 a pound for organic, free-range chicken?  (Guess he forgot how much people who can’t grow their own food benefit from farm subsidies.)

Besides, I’d point out that even if you’re living on the poorest farm, you’re still better off than a lot of California urbanites.  They both may have no electricity and be surrounded by manure, but at least on the farm, it’s not human manure scattered with drug needles.

 

--------------------------------------------------

You might have read the disturbing news that Google has been quietly accessing tens of millions of Americans' medical records without first removing the identifying personal data.  At the link is an anonymous article by the Google employee who worked on the secret project for a while before realizing the full ramifications and finally decided that the public had a right to know.  His/her revelations have sparked calls for an investigation. Just for the record, this is what an actual whistleblower looks like:

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/nov/14/im-the-google-whistleblower-the-medical-data-of-millions-of-americans-is-at-risk

 

 -------------------------------------------------

I’m not a psychiatrist, but I think that Speaker Pelosi’s odd lashing out at a reporter for asking a perfectly legitimate question might betray some serious emotional turmoil, such as desperation, panic or fear that she’s set in motion a runaway train and it’s about to go over a cliff with her entire Party aboard.

https://www.foxnews.com/media/nancy-pelosi-reporter-mr-republican-talking-points

PS – Great comment about Speaker Pelosi’s desperation from a poster at Lucianne.com who goes by the screen name “zuker5”: “Grasping for straws. Unfortunately for her, her people banned plastic straws, so the only straws that she has within reach are paper, and they’re soggy, and falling apart.”

-----------------------------------

If Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) hoped that their low-rated “impeachment” show would undermine support for President Trump, then they must feel like Wile E. Coyote after one of his Acme Roadrunner Trumps blew up in his face.  Not only do polls show support for impeachment falling, but day one of their circus sparked a massive boost in campaign donations…to Trump. 

https://www.westernjournal.com/trump-campaign-calls-impeachment-hearing-day-one-one-best-days-fundraising-ever/

In the 24 hours after what they call the “Hearsay Hearings,” the Trump campaign took in $3.1 million from small dollar donors, one of their biggest days ever. They also claim that since the impeachment push officially started, over 100,000 people have volunteered to work for the campaign.

Is it any wonder Nancy Pelosi seems as grumpy and discombobulated as someone who’s been suddenly shaken awake from a deep sleep into a very unpleasant reality?

    I live on a lake in an community not incorporated. Since a main road goes through. Incorporation is impossible financially but people are moving up here for the school and getting out of Montgomery. Sad thing we can’t get help like cities so we have to do money makers for fire dept and can’t get sewage. Great place to live
