Media-Sensory Overload

In his column titled "From One Frenzy to the Next", Victor Davis Hanson describes Russian collusion, the NFL kneelers, the statue-haters, and the sexual harassers this way: "America is in another of its Salem moments. Frenzy is almost a living, breathing monster. It moves from host to host, fueled by rumor, gossip, and self-righteous furor."

And that's why I watch as little of the news as possible these days. The constant cable news with all the shouting, the eye-popping split screens, and the tidal wave of information is simply overwhelming.  Remember when we relied on just a newspaper or Walter Cronkite for our information, and remember when things were so much calmer and quieter?

Lowering the Military Bar

Don't you feel much safer now?  "Army lifts ban on cutters, mentally ill and drug abusers to meet recruiting goals."

Simple But True Blog Post Title

Brutalist's "Things CNN will not show you..." is a perfect title for most things that show Trump in a favorable light. Pictures like this featuring Obama were shown on every network, but the only place I've seen photos from this foreign trip has been the Internet. (Also see Don Surber's "Magical History Tour" post.)

The Eleventh Hour of the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month

In commemoration of our Veterans Day and Europe's Armistice Day. There were 18.5 million veterans in the United States in 2016, according to the Washington Post.

Lots 'o Links

Celebrate the weekend the the November 8 Trumpiversary with lots of good reading from Maggie's Farm, Larwyn's Linx, and Betsy's Page!

I am tired of reading that every single woman now seems to be the victim of sexual harrassment.  Suzanne Fields says, " "Women looking too hard for offense can often find it even when it is not there. Innocent men (there are some) often preface compliments on a woman's hair or dress, or apologize for saying it, just in case. Vice President Mike Pence's famous unwillingness to dine with a woman alone suddenly seems not so prim and prudish. As one famous suspect would say, 'Sad.'" If you're groped, that's one thing -- but can't you scream or slap the guy's face instead of waiting 10 years to mention it?

Anne Frank, Goyified

This news is beyond belief. "It's Anne Frank—without the Jews or the Nazis! A Dutch production of a new take on the diary-writing young girl will open amid criticism from Jewish groups this week for erasing the Frank family's Jewish identity and failing to mention the Nazis who killed Anne and her sister in a concentration camp."

Talk about erasing history!

Read the entire article, then pray that this travesty is a huge flop.

Motive for Murder

It's not a gun problem, it's a matter of being taught the difference between right and wrong. 

"According to police, Kelley was involved in a 'domestic situation' and had been sending 'threatening texts' to his mother-in-law before the massacre.   'This was not racially motivated. It wasn't over religious beliefs,' Freeman Martin of the Texas Department of Public Safety said Monday. 'There was a domestic situation going on with the family and in-laws.'"

So because you hate your in-laws, you slaughter 25 other people in a church.Of course.

Please, let's not waste millions of dollars more on anti-gun prevention, on suicide prevention, on anger management, etc.  It accomplishes absolutely nothing -- just look at Chicago! It boils down to a matter of morals, character, and basic human decency, and money can't fix that.

How's This for a Flag?

We Dodged the Clinton Bullet

How lucky we are that Trump defeated Hilary! Imagine if she had won the election and then all these scandalous new details had emerged!

Donna Brazile says she has proof that the DNC rigged the election in Hilary's favor.  She says, "When I was asked to run the Democratic Party after the Russians hacked our emails, I stumbled onto a shocking truth about the Clinton campaign."

How nice of her to reveal all this information in a book, for which she is being paid!
