Parkland shooting survivor-turned-gun control activist David Hogg said Tuesday that he’s been the target of seven assassination attempts since the mass shooting at his high school last year thrust him and his classmates to the forefront of the gun debate.
“In the past year, there have been seven assassination attempts,” Mr. Hogg, 19, told The Washington Post. “Honestly, I realize that it’s horrible that I have to live through this, and it is traumatizing.
“But you eventually become desensitized to it,” he continued. “Like, oh, your house got SWAT-ted. You got a call from the police saying someone said that everyone in your family had been killed

In a new book, advice columnist E. Jean Carroll claims Donald Trump raped her in a dressing room stall nearly 25 years ago. As soon as she made her claim, the Democrat media complex jumped all over the story and gave it credibility.
President Trump immediately outright denied the accusation.
"Shame on those who make up false stories of assault to try to get publicity for themselves, or sell a book, or carry out a political agenda—like Julie Swetnick who falsely accused Justice Brett Kavanaugh. It’s just as bad for people to believe it,

Socialism — pro or con — is the hot issue in Democratic circles as the party’s candidates for president prepare to debate this week.
To the obvious objection that socialism failed catastrophically in Venezuela and the Soviet Union, Democratic democratic socialists have a ready response: Our model is the thriving nations of northern Europe.
“I think that countries like Denmark and Sweden do very well,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) told an Iowa audience in April. “My policies most closely resemble what we see in the U.K., in Norway, in Finland, in Sweden,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) told CBS’s “60 Minutes” in January.

Megan Rapinoe is the co-captain of the U.S. women’s national soccer team and a rabid hater of President Trump. (SnipToday, President Trump brilliantly responded to Ms. Rapinoe. First, by calling out her arrogance in declaring victory before she even played the World Cup matches; and secondly, by inviting the entire team to the White House “win or lose”.
The pressure is now upon Ms. Rapinoe. That pressure overlays a preexisting, unstable and tenuous psychological condition related to her tribal self-identification and commercial aspirations. This dynamic is a recipe for implosion. It will not end well for her.

In 2012, the last election Democrats won, a headline from their convention read: "Democrats boo God." In 2016, they heckled a preacher during the opening prayer. It's a perception they've been trying to change since, especially on the 2020 campaign trail. (Snip) The DNC hired former Washington, D.C. anti-Trump pastor, Rev. Derrick Harkins, who held a similar position in 2012 and has been the senior vice president of Union Theological Seminary in New York City, which recently celebrated "rejoicing in the queerness of God."

Employees of the online housewares giant Wayfair announced Tuesday that they would stage a walkout at the company’s Back Bay headquarters on Wednesday to protest its decision to sell furniture to the operators of facilities for migrant children detained at the southern US border.
Last Wednesday, they learned that a $200,000 order of bedroom furniture had been placed by BCFS, a government contractor that has been managing camps at the border. More than 500 employees signed a letter of protest sent to company executives. When the company refused to change course, employees organized the walkout.

James O’Keefe’s explosive video exposing Google’s political agenda appears to have ruffled some feathers in the media world.
Jen Gennai, the Google executive seen talking to Project Veritas undercover journalists about Google’s plans to prevent “the next Trump situation,” has already published a response complaining that she was taken out of context.
And the bombshell video didn’t last even a full day on YouTube before it was removed from the platform.

This was awkward.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Monday interviewed E. Jean Carroll, a woman who alleged Donald Trump raped her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in the 1990’s.(Snip)The woman is not well.
And it appears she is also a plagiarist.
Carroll’s story is eerily similar to an episode of Law and Order from season 13 — right down to the rape fantasy in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room.Via The Bradford File:
I saw your interview of E. Jean Carroll. Her story sounds a lot like an episode of Special Victims Unit—Episode 11, Season 13

U.S. asylum officers slammed President Trump’s policy of forcing migrants to remain in Mexico while they await immigration hearings in the United States, urging a federal appeals court Wednesday to block the administration from continuing the program. The officers, who are directed to implement the policy, said it is threatening migrants’ lives and is “fundamentally contrary to the moral fabric of our Nation.”
The labor union representing asylum officers filed a friend-of-the-court brief that sided with the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups challenging Trump’s Migrant Protection Protocols program, which has sent 12,000 asylum-seeking migrants to Mexico since January.

Ask Democrats whether they support “Medicare for All” and the vast majority will say yes. Ask them what’s actually in it, and most don’t have a clue. That, at least, is what a new survey shows.
The Kaiser Family Foundation asked multiple questions about Medicare for All, and broke down the findings by partisan affiliation. You’d expect that Democrats, who have been calling for single-payer for decades, and now have two bills in Congress that would achieve it, would be the most well-informed of anyone.
It turns out, they are the worst informed. Both Republicans and independents have a much better grasp of what Bernie Sanders
