Anti-Trump McCarthyism

This is just outrageous: "A cafe in California was protested by an anti-Trump group and had its membership from the local Chamber of Commerce revoked because its owner supports President Trump.
Asher Shalom, the owner of Asher Caffé & Lounge, said on 'Fox & Friends' Thursday that leftists in his community of Boyle Heights have taken exception to his support for Trump's immigration policies.
Shalom told Brian Kilmeade that as a legal immigrant who came to America 30 years ago, he takes issue with those coming to the country illegally.
He said that the majority of his 70 employees are immigrants."

What will these anarchists do next, shut businesses down completely?

And do I detect a little antisemitism here? Every Jew in Boyle Heights and surrounding communities should patronize the Asher CaffĂ© & Lounge if they don't already do so!

Antisemitism Headline of the Week

PLO: Opposing our Murder of Jews is Racist. 

As Daniel Greenfield comments, "I'm unclear on which humanitarian laws protect the right to stab Rabbis in synagogues, slash pregnant women or fire anti-tank missiles at school buses."

Need Something to Read?

Check out the stuff at Debby Witt's Monday Links, found at National Review's The Corner. 

Visit Mental Floss, which always has interesting and educational articles.  Today you can read about Stolpersteine, "the most startling memorial to victims of the Holocaust", learn some household chore hacks, and discover the 1925 cave rescue that captivated the nation

Trump or Chump

I'm afraid the Washington Post is right when it says, "When the history of Donald Trump’s presidency is ultimately written, July 16, 2018, will have a special entry. On a day when the setting called for a show of strength and resolve from an American president, Trump instead offered deference, defensiveness, equivocation and weakness."

You know it's bad when even his supporters are criticizing him.

We really could have used some political savvy today.


Also, can't his advisors please insist he stop tweeting and also stop talking about Robert Mueller and Hillary Clinton, especially when he's in a foreign country? Let's not give the Dems more ammunition.

Miraculous Rescue

The rescue of all the boys and their soccer coach from the cave in Thailand has to be the most uplifting story of the week. It's really miraculous, and the Seals and that coach all deserve medals and other rewards. But let's hope nothing like this happens again any time soon!

Supreme Court Mad Libs

Remember the game Mad Libs. where you'd fill in the blanks with adjectives and nouns, resulting in an unintentionally funny story? The Democrats, who are very mad libs, have just done this with all the Trump candidates for the Supreme Court.  I got a kick out of this column titled Top Six Unhinged Reactions to Kavanaugh Nomination. Make sure you look at the amusing reader comments as well.

Borkification Time

I feel very sorry for whoever Trump chooses to be his Supreme Court nominee. He has every right to make his own choice, but the rabid Democrats are already foaming at the mouth and attacking.  The Dems keep looking more extreme by the day, and I hope all this hysteria only ends up backfiring on them.

Work Ethic Shortage

Here's a headline that should but won't put young people to shame:   A record number of folks age 85 and older are working. Here's what they're doing.  They weren't called "the greatest generation" for nothing.

The article also mentions that "workers age 30 and younger are staying on the sidelines at rates not seen since the 1960s and '70s." And yet you keep hearing about a labor shortage! How about kicking these people off welfare and disability, so that they'll quickly have no choice but to fill that shortage.

Also, those rational protesters want to abolish ICE. What next, dismantling our armed forces, our police, and our justice system? I'm sure they'd love that.
