    News stories from the summer of 2017 through June 2018
    August 13, 2017: Mayhem in Charlettsville, VA. A group was setting up a protest over the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue in that city. This group was not a violent group. However, white supremacist groups (far right groups) came with weapons. In response, Antifa and Black Lives Matter (far left groups) also showed up with weapons. Fighting began. One of the members of the white supremacist groups drove his car into the crowd killing one and injuring others. President Trump condemned both groups. His opponents (mostly the media) condemned Trump saying he should not equate Antifa with Neo Nazis and claimed Trump himself is sympathetic to the Nazis.
    August 3, 2017: Food stamp usage down:
    Food stamp drop. More than 1.1 million Americans have dropped off the food stamp rolls since President Trump took office in January. 1.1 million gone. My head snapped back. I said "why, what happened?" The reasons that are put forth is that there is legislation brewing that the states are going to have to impose work rules for food stamps and they're only going to get a certain amount of federal money, it's going to be capped. Secondly, the crackdown on illegal immigration has taking many of those folks off the food stamp rolls. I think that's the big one. And third, that food stamp work requirements in the individual states are now getting more stringent.

    August 1, 2017: Article from Psychology Today:
    "Researchers discovered that large amounts of young people are developing an entitlement complex. The psychological trend comes from the belief that you are superior to others and are more deserving of certain things. This form of narcissism has significant consequences such a disappointment and a tendency to lash out. Psychology Today reports that some examples of entitlement ranged from the disregard of rules, freeloading, causing inconvenience, and likely to assume the role of a leader when working in groups."

    ...
    Back in August, the CIA apparently told President Obama that Russia was trying to get into the system. In October, administration officials grew certain that Russia was behind the WikiLeaks dump of Democratic Party emails. President Obama said nothing, even though Hillary Clinton was getting pounded and the Democratic National Committee was in disarray. An organization filed a Freedom of Information Act request and has just released letters sent to President Obama by intelligence officials. Think about this - President Obama was aggressively campaigning for Hillary Clinton, and he might have helped her if he had put this information out. But he didn't and nobody knows why. There is something going on here.
    Under cover video showing CNN overplayed the Russian collusion story in order to gain ratings not because it was real:

    June 14, 2017: Shooting of members of Congress practicing for charity baseball game.
    A Bernie Sanders supporter who worked as a volunteer within his campaign (not close to Sanders, but a local volunteer) went to where the congressmen and women were practicing and asked which political party they were. When they were told Republican, he started shooting. Five were wounded. Capitol police arrived and were able to shoot and kill the shooter. It's important to note that Bernie Sanders completely condemned the shooting and any use of violence. Sanders certainly is not to blame for the shooting. Unfortunately, there are haters on the left and the right, but hatred toward President Trump specifically on the left is something growing. This takes place on the heels of Kathy Griffin putting out a picture of her holding a bloodied head of Donald Trump and Bill Maher's remarks. This is also after months of riots against Trump's agenda and violence out of groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter as well as the riots on college campuses aiming at shutting down free speech.

    July 30, 2017: Story on illegal immigration and sanctuary cities:
    An illegal alien criminal, deported they say 20 times, 20 times, apparently raped two women in Portland, Oregon recently.
    But here's the deal, ICE had asked for the man to be detained last December, because obviously he's in the country in a criminal fashion and he shouldn't be.
    Multnomah County, where Portland, Oregon is, is a sanctuary county. Portland is a sanctuary city. They let him go, let them go. So now two women have been brutalized by this guy.

    July 25, 2016: Commentary on state of finances in California, a state with high taxes, a lot of taxes, and a lot of social programs in terms of redistribution of wealth.
    Here is a story that caught my eye that you’re not going to hear anyplace else.
    ...
    So California, very prosperous state in the sense that the economy is huge, is a place where destitution rules in the minority precincts. Destitution.
    Huge taxes in California…this is the price you pay for a welfare state. Vicious cycle.
    ...
    killing people.

    July 25, 2016: Commentary on state of finances in California, a state with high taxes, a lot of taxes, and a lot of social programs in terms of redistribution of wealth.
    Here is a story that caught my eye that you’re not going to hear anyplace else.
    It is in California. 37 percent of all households in California, the nation’s largest state, have no cash in the bank. None. They’re living pay check to pay check or welfare check to welfare check. They don’t have any money. So if anything happens where they have a debate or whatever they can’t pay it. Many of these people run up a big credit card debt.
    61 percent of Latino households in Californ...ia have no savings. 57 percent of black households have no savings. 28 percent of white have no savings. That’s how it breaks down.
    Now, if you are in the circumstance you are going to have to depend on the government sooner or later. Probably sooner. And that takes your power. If you don’t have any money, individual power is nil. You're dependent on somebody giving you enough to survive. That’s what it is.
    So California, very prosperous state in the sense that the economy is huge, is a place where destitution rules in the minority precincts. Destitution.
    Huge taxes in California…this is the price you pay for a welfare state. Vicious cycle.
    It pains me because I think America is the land of opportunity. But if you don’t have any money you’re not going to get much opportunity. You gotta save, you gotta work hard. Taxes are killing people.

    July 17, 2017: Story about the Women's March supporting a cop killer:
    There is a group called Women’s March – and these were the people behind the inaugural march in Washington - and now they put out a statement honoring a terrorist. A woman who killed a police officer. So three democratic senators were asked if they still support the women’s March organization. The senators are Kamila Harris, Diane Feinstein, both of California. And Kirsten Gillibrand of New York. Those women would not, would not, repudiate the Women’s March.
    Now here’s what happened.
    On Sunday, the Women’s March tweeted a birthday greeting to 70 year old Assata Shakur. And they are calling here a hero of the feminist movement.
    Quote: “Assata Shakur’s resistance tactics were different than ours. It does not mean we do not respect her anti-feminist work.”
    Ok. This is unbelievable. Here’s her resistance tactics. You ready?
    In 1973, May 2 of 1973, as a member of the black panthers and the black liberation, Assata Shakur and two other individuals were stopped on the New Jersey turnpike by state troopers. A shoot out ensued. One of Shakur’s companions was killed, she was wounded, and a police officer named Werner Foerster was killed. Another state trooper suffered injuries in that shoot out. This is on just a pull over. Subsequently she was convicted of first degree murder of a state trooper. Which means that the jury in the case found that Shakur opened fire on him. That’s first-degree murder. If it was anything other than that it would have been 2nd degree or man slaughter.
    She was in prison in West Virginia. That was in 1977. In 1979, she escapes – had to be an inside job- and she goes to Cuba. Where she is right now! Cuba, the Castro brothers harbor her.
    Finally, in June, just last month, when President Trump said he was going to tighten up the Cuban situation, that he is not going to have the Obama policy of open interaction, he cited this Assad Shakur, also known as Joanne Chesimard.
    Joanne Chesimard is her real name but Shakur is what the Women’s March is using.
    So Trump said ‘look we want this woman back. She murdered a cop. She escaped from prison. You’re harboring her and if you keep her we are not going to deal with you on the level that Obama did.
