1/ TODAY'S TIDBITS
2019AUG08
A THREAD OF WEE NEWS NUGGETS...
2/ A California man went on a stabbing rampage that left four dead and two wounded. Expect minor coverage of this from the mediahyenas.
3/ The NRA is warning Trump that his stated support for red-flag laws and expanding background checks to cover individual sales will backfire among his base. I get the same sense from following commentary on social media on the issue.
4/ He might pick up some milquetoast moderates from such a stance but would it be enough to offset the damage to his base? I don't know.
5/ Grope at the Iowa State Fair: "We choose truth over facts."
6/ Factoid: More than 40 million people remain in slavery today, with Africa holding the highest percentage with seven out of every one thousand people living in servitude.
7/ Hong Kong remains a tinderbox, with massive protests continuing and increasing numbers of protesters carrying signs like "WE NEED A SECOND AMENDMENT" and "SAVE HONG KONG, MR. TRUMP," slogans bound to raise the ire of the mainland Chinese government.
8/ Twitter has locked Mitch McConnell's re-election campaign account for posting a video of leftists screaming murder threats and wishes outside his Kentucky home.
9/ They claim the video is "unsafe," but they've had no problem with allowing the #MassacreMitch hashtag to trend since last weekend.
10/ Ilhan Omar, who recently separated from her husband (that's complicated), appears to be in an affair with one of her aides, who is married.
11/ The Dayton shooter was among a group of hundreds of Antifa goons who showed up at a recent KKK rally that attracted a total of nine klansmen. The Dayton shooter was carrying an AR-style weapon at the rally.
12/ THE HUNT, a Universal movie slated for release in September, features liberal elites hunting "deplorables" for fun.
13/ Reason #6,493 why the UK is destined to fall to Islam: The UK's top counter-terrorism officer said Muslims should not feel like they have to assimilate.
14/ Gun sales are surging, with the biggest jump being in concealed-carry pistols.
15/ Prime robots are officially delivering Amazon packages in Irvine, CA. For now, the six-wheeled automatons are accompanied by humans to monitor the performance during their rollout.
16/ The Lunatic Left has now adopted the position that all Trump voters are white supremacists, a notion willingly spread by the media, the latest proof that they never, ever learn.
17/ The bogus racism card has worn out and no longer plays, so instead of reconsidering, they double down and create meaner-sounding labels.
18/ Roughly half those arrested in yesterday's ICE raids have been released "due to humanitarian concerns."
19/ Cal State San Bernardino sent out an email telling students about job opportunities with Border Patrol. Now they're apologizing for triggering some students and providing counseling for those wee souls.
20/ Handy Andy McCabe has joined his fellow thug Peter Strzok and sued FedGov for wrongful termination.
21/ Taylor Swift stated in an interview with VOGUE that “rights are being stripped from basically everyone who isn’t a straight white cisgender male.”
22/ She said this while "slathering triple-cream Brie onto sea-salt crackers" she plucked from an "ornate charcuterie board" while "comfortably ensconced in a human-scale basket that is sort of shaped like a cocoon."
23/ Miejsce Odrzańskie, Poland, a village of 300 that dates back to the 17th century, hasn't had a boy born there in more than ten years and that's a continuation of the trend in this female-dominated town where women make up two-thirds of the fire department.
24/ Germany is preparing to raise its "meat tax" from 7% to 19%. To fight climate change. Wurst idea ever.
