Under-reported Stories Catch-up (110418) — Round 1

Filed under: Lucid Links — Tom @ 8:41 am

I have a huge backlog of items to note and only about 48 hours to note them. So I’m going into double-time mode here, and will do two rounds of these items today, two on Monday, and one early Tuesday morning.

These are stories from the past couple of weeks which haven’t gotten the attention they deserve. All of them should be considered relevant to voters’ decisions as to which candidates — and which party’s candidates — they should support at the polls during this election cycle:

More leftist vandalism: “Vandals Smash Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s Office with Boulder.” Additionally, as of October 23, Breitbart News had “documented over 610 individual acts of violence, vandalism, threats, and harassment against Trump and his supporters.” The count as of November 4 is 632.

Twenty years too late, Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen has admittedd, as paraphrased by John Sexton at Hot Air, that he “mentally downplayed” Juanita Broaddrick’s rape allegations against Bill Clinton and now sees them as credible because Bubba “was part of his social class.” Sexton wryly note that this admission is quite convenient, since “It doesn’t matter anymore.”

The paid business of providing paid protesters has allegedly graduated into extortion tactics, i.e., Pay them a lot of money and they’ll leave you alone. Fail to do so, and they’ll make your life a living hell.

Somehow, this hasn’t been major news: “Acting on a tip from an anonymous source, Detroit police conducted a series of raids on funeral homes and discovered a situation comprised of something out of a horror film. Detroit police have since launched a “wide probe” into other funeral homes after finding dozens of infant corpses hidden inside at least two of them.”

In a late-October column, Michelle Malkin reminded readers that the Affordable Care Act, the “signature achievement of former President Barack Obama, who is now on the mid-terms campaign trail claiming that “”I don’t believe in just making stuff up,” caused her family to lose “not one, not two, not three but four private individual market health plans killed directly by Obamacare.”

Sad but true, from the produer of Gosnell: “In America, It’s OK to Traffic in Baby Parts—As Long As You Don’t Advertise Too Aggressively.

Twelve days ago, as pollster Nate Silver was claiming that Democrats have an 85 percent chance of retaking the House, the Associated Press, of all places, reported that “In the closing stretch of the 2018 campaign, the question is no longer the size of the Democratic wave. It’s whether there will be a wave at all.”

Bruce Barlett, alleged Republican, went on CNN and MSNBC and tried to argue “How Hitler Was Better Man Than Trump.Nine years ago, he declared that “I consider myself to be an independent. Mindless partisanship has replaced principled conservatism.” In other words, he’s NOT a Republican.

Democrats won’t stop this: Government investigators have reported on the widespread “use of food stamp fraud to finance terrorism in the United States and abroad … The detectives told Congress that at least $125 million found it’s way to terrorists.” Sadly, all one can say about Republicans is that they might stop it. As the article reveals, they’ve had 25 years to do something about it, and haven’t.

Why leftists can’t be trusted: Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were once firmly against illegal immigrationor so they said.

Spare us the “civility” lectures: The New York Times ”asked five best-selling thriller authors to write fictional endings to the Trump-Russia story.” One of the alternative endings it published had Trump assassinated with the gun of an approving Secret Service agent.

Missouri’s incumbment U.S. Senator, DemocratClaire McCaskill, after Project Veritas exposed her moderate pretenses as lies: “I’m ‘not one of those crazy Democrats.’” Yes, she is, and she was caught on tape admitting it.
