Evening Edition - August 24

August 24, 2019

I don’t want to turn this newsletter into a tally sheet for all of Joe Biden’s gaffes because I just don’t have the time or space for them all, but if one gets enough attention, I’ll mention it.  Like on Friday, when Joe was recalling the civil rights era of the 1960s-‘70s (he has previously recalled being a leader of the desegregation protests, although there seems to be no evidence of that), and he said this about the famous 1970 shooting of student protesters in Ohio:

"Things changed. You had over 40 kids shot at Kent State on a beautiful lawn by the National Guard."

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/biden-says-40-were-shot-at-kent-state-in-1970-when-four-students-were-killed

It was actually four students who were killed and nine others injured, not 40. That might be a forgivable lapse if Neil Young hadn’t turned the death toll into a famous song lyric: “Four dead in O-hi-o.” The Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young recording that repeats that line over and over has been ranked as the greatest protest song of the era.   

On the plus side, at least he didn’t praise illegal immigrants for keeping the lawn beautiful.

Condolences to the family of David Koch, half of the wealthy industrialist Koch Brothers, who has died at 79 after years of battling prostate cancer.  The Koch Brothers are a favorite target of rage for their libertarian political activism by the same leftists who have no problem with the political manipulations of far-left billionaires such as George Soros and most of the Silicon Valley tech giants. Many of them showed the rot in their souls by celebrating his death on social media.  Their hatred obviously didn’t involve too much deep thinking or they might have noticed that the Kochs also backed same-sex marriage, decriminalizing drugs and cutting defense spending.

At the link, W. James Antle III of The Week offers a more balanced view of David Koch and his legacy.

Antle mentions that the Kochs funded many things that had nothing to do with politics and for which the left gives them no credit, including theaters, art museums and hospitals. 

 

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

Speaking of that, on Friday, it was revealed that liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had undergone radiation treatment for a malignant tumor on her pancreas.  The news set off a wave of hysteria on the left that President Trump would get to name her replacement.  Michael Moore hit the ALL-CAPS KEY to call for a national mobilization of leftists to swamp the polls and defeat Trump in 2020, while others took the more direct root of offering her their own organs on Facebook.    

https://www.westernjournal.com/breaking-justice-ruth-bader-ginsburg-treated-pancreatic-cancer/

But in fact, Justice Ginsburg’s doctors say she needs no further treatment and there’s no evidence of cancer anywhere else in her body (we send our prayers and good wishes for a full recovery.) And they are the very best doctors she could hope for.

You see, she was treated at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, which in 2015 received the largest donation in its history - $150 million – from David Koch.  They even named a cancer center in his honor.  You're welcome, leftist haters.

 

 ---------------------------------

Kurt Schlichter has a new article that’s getting a lot of attention.  It’s called “All The People Who Think They Are Better Than You Are Much, Much Worse.”   

https://townhall.com/columnists/kurtschlichter/2019/08/22/all-the-people-who-think-they-are-better-than-you-are-much-much-worse-n2551987

It’s a brutally hilarious takedown of all the self-appointed elites who think they know how to run your life better than you do when they have zero accomplishments of their own.  As Schlichter points out, at least the old school elites actually did some great things: won world wars, put a man on the moon, invented the Big Mac, etc.  But today’s elites mostly claim to be so smart that only they can solve the problems created by the dumb ideas they foisted on us, like Obamacare and crushing college loan debt. These are the third-generation elites who’ve never actually done anything, but their superiority is verified by degrees from Ivy League universities that they only got into because their parents donated a gymnasium. 

It’s not polite or PC, but there are plenty of laugh-out-loud quotable lines that I don’t want to spoil, so click on the link and enjoy.   

 

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

Here’s your “feel good” story for the weekend: in Chicago, a thug thought he’d spotted an easy mark when he punched a young woman on the street, knocking her down, then called her a nasty name and demanded her cell phone.  He didn’t realize that his would-be mugging victim was Claire Quinn, an undefeated female Golden Gloves champion who was on her way to the boxing gym when she was attacked.

https://www.westernjournal.com/mugger-fails-miserably-unknowingly-targets-female-boxing-champion/

I should warn you that this story contains a vulgar term for male genitals.  Considering what Ms Quinn did, a more appropriate euphemism would be “punching bag.”

    My past comments were to look for other outlets to fill the void that China is going to experience when the US finds other vendors to take its place Looks like Trump is way ahead of the sleazy media and our new found Socialist group. Remember when Japan was buying up the West Coast the East Coast and what ever they could here in America China has done the same buying Hollywood the Media and government officials. Thank God Trump is ahead of the game slowing it down although the slaughter of our President will continue by the Media our citizens are getting a bit smarter as to the Agenda of the Left we see what they have done to our cities even the White Females in the suburbs that have been educated by Left Colleges and Universities may see the Communities they live in may not be immuned to destructive action of their left leaders. women can be so stubborn however maternal instinct will kick in and they will want to protect the children from urban decay remember girls suburbs are not immune to suburban decay. Don't think a tent city can't become a reality on your well groomed lawn or beautiful sidewalks who thought SF a very beautiful city could turn into a shitty garbage landfill? Think Girls!

    I heard Jonathan Coen talk about his new book Oracle. Release 9/3. The book is about end times and what the Bible has to say about the spiritual war we are in. I am looking forward to the read.

    Thank you for being an awesome man of God,

    I love your Evening Editions, and agree wholeheartedly with your assessments, and love your humor. Keep it up! I am a committed believer in Jesus and know that in the end He will have the victory over our messy world, as stated in our Bible! So thankful for that!

    Biden spoke of the desegregation movement and how he participated and added the number killed at Kent State (It was 4 not 40). But, it was over Vietnam...not segregation.

    The leftist/socialists don't give a rat's patooty about anything that someone they go after actually did that support their agenda. Nope, only focus on that which does not. So what if the Koch Brothers gave much more to charity and to good causes than any of the elite politicians and the "elite" (cough cough) celebrities combined. These are the same people who had a hissy-fit over some remark by President Trump about mcclain they screamed was horrible and disrespectful and on and on. Not that they had been all that respectful about him before they went after the President. Absolute hypocrites.

    Kurt Schlichter is right on the mark with his assessment of the "elite."

    Thank goodness there is such a facility as Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York to successfully treat Justice Gingsburg and millions of others. Funny (not ha-ha funny) that I have yet to see any on the left to say, "Thank God that she has been successfully treated" but, only, "OMG!!!! President Trump will have the opportunity to seat another conservative Justice!!!"

    Us older folks were spoiled by actually growing up with leaders who actually did something with their lives before presuming to take a leadership role! I guess we just assumed that it was the way it would continue.... Well, consider this old man not impressed with the current bunch of self proclaimed "leaders "!
