Weekly Wrap-Up

Rep. Nancy Pelosi says that voting for Democrats this November is the best way to give illegal aliens “leverage” in Congress. If you ask me, with lawmakers refusing to secure our borders and help President Trump build the wall, it looks like those who have snuck into our country illegally, and those who want to, already have plenty of “leverage” in Washington. 

I can think of plenty of other groups who truly need “leverage” in Congress – seniors, working families, small business owners, the unborn. Which group do you believe is being ignored MOST by Nancy Pelosi and her friends on Capitol Hill? That’s the first question in our new Weekly Poll.

Here is an alarming story: Authorities discovered a New Mexico compound linked to “extremist Muslims” where kids were being taught how to be school shooters. Eleven children were rescued – the remains of another were recovered. 

This should be the story of the year, as Matt Walsh notes – but it doesn’t fit the left’s anti-Trump narrative, so it gets little attention. As Mr. Walsh puts it, “If the terrorists were Christian fundamentalists or white supremacists, you can bet the reaction would be quite a bit more explosive.”

It’s more proof that Trump-hatred has become an all-consuming virus on the left – we’re seeing that from the New York Democrats, of course – and especially with the mass media

I’ve often wondered why exactly journalists have so much hatred for President Trump – is it just because he’s a conservative? Does the fact that he beat Hillary Clinton make them especially angry? Or is it Trump voters the media elites really hate? 

I’ll make this the second question of our new Weekly Poll – and I’m looking forward to learning what you think about the media’s Trump hatred.

The Democrats’ embrace of Socialism leads to another question, posed here by Investor’s Business Daily: Who knew free stuff could cost so much?

We talked last week about socialized health care’s $32 trillion price tag – New York’s resident Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a bizarre claim this week that this doesn’t factor in funeral costs for people who die because of… sorry, you’ll have to figure this one out on your own, it’s too ludicrous for me to follow.

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez made another questionable claim this week – that she receives heaps of supportive letters from Republicans who support her agenda. 

It’s not outside the realm of possibility – there are economically-illiterate Republicans, of course – but it definitely inspired the third and final question in our new Weekly Poll: If you sent a letter to our state’s reining Socialist, what would be the most important thing you’d want to say? 

That’s it for this week – have a great weekend!
