Illegal Immigration Obsession

Look at the Daily News cover in this article, and you'll see how the liberals are portraying the illegal immigration crisis in this country.

The Republicans ought to counter by pointing out that if the immigrants don't want to be separated from their children, they should stop trying to come here in the first place.  Why don't they go to other Central American countries instead?  And why do the rights of illegal immigrants and their children seem to be more important than the rights of American citizens? We voted for our politicians to represent us, and if the Republicans won't do that, they can expect to be defeated.

Anne Frank's Birthday

She would have been 89 years old today if she had survived the Holocaust. Instead she's frozen in time at age 15. Here's some information at VA Viper, via links at NRO's The Corner.

Holocaust survivor and educator Gena Turgel passed away last week at age 95; she helped care for Anne Frank at Bergen-Belsen.

The Beauty of Singapore vs. The Ugliness of Liberals

For all the news on the Trump-Kim summit, and on Singapore itself, go right to the horse's mouth and check out the Straits Times.

It was disgraceful, on the eve of the summit, to hear about Robert DeNiro's unhinged attack on Trump during the once-classy Tony Awards show. I'm not sure what was worse: DeNiro's filthy mouth, or the idiots in the audience who gave him a standing ovation for it.  Motus A.D. is right -- the comments at Variety are hysterical, and you can enjoy them here.

Pictures and Yiddish

Enjoy The Week in Pictures over at Powerline.

From Yiddish Vinkl, here's a word I've never heard before, but I loved the description of how to say it: "Khnyok - it's pronounced as one syllable, a feat best managed by pretending to clear your throat and blow your nose at the same time."

Speaking of Yiddish, I finally saw the correct spelling of a word I heard a lot as a kid: oysgedart, meaning skinny and emaciated, and in our family usually used to describe an unattractive woman.
We also heard the expression "You shouldn't know from it", and online I saw Zolst nit vissen fun kain shlechts, meaning  "You shouldn't know from bad (evil)".

Charles Krauthammer: A Life Well Lived

I was so sad to read Charles Krauthammer's moving farewell letter today and learn that he has only weeks left to live due to cancer.  I have always admired him for the life he made for himself after his paralysis, his careers as psychiatrist, lawyer, columnist, and political commentator, and his great courage.

While reading the letter, I couldn't help but remember another touching letter, Ronald Reagan's, announcing that he had Alzheimer's.

My prayers are with Charles tonight.

Lots 'o Links

Visit with Maggie's Farm, Betsy's Page, and Larwyn's Linx for your weekly dose of interesting posts.

Here's another case of liberals with far too much time on their hands, trying to eradicate everything innocent and normal: "Australian officials are combing through children's books — and toys — in kindergartens, schools, and libraries, aiming not just to promote 'gender neutral' options but to avoid 'gender stereotyping' of any kind. At least two city councils in the Australian state of Victoria — Manningham and Melbourne, specifically — have started 'auditing' children's books, ultimately considering a kind of ban on the terms 'boy' and 'girl.'"

It certainly didn’t harm the Greatest Generation who fought on D-Day to have been referred to all their lives as “boys” and “men”, did it?

Memorial Day 2018

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them." - Laurence Binyon,  from "For the Fallen"

Thank you for your sacrifice!
