We are the worst country on the planet. At least we are according to the radicals on the left.
Funny thing about being the worst. When you are the worst, not many will gravitate toward you. If we are truly the worst, most racist, most homophobic, anti-immigrant, misogynist nation, no one with even half a brain would want to come here legally, much less sneak in under threat of arrest and imprisonment.
But the facts don’t support the left’s amplification of outrage. The facts do support that America is the most attractive nation on the planet, as demonstrated by the fact that everyone wants to get in and no one wants to leave. Not even the wacky Hollywood leftists who vowed to do so should Trump get elected. We’re still waiting, by the way.
No other nation is even close. The only reason Europe has had such a large influx of immigration is strictly due to geographic proximity. If the United States was closer to the Middle East and Africa, they would all choose to come here.
Oh sure, this isn’t about a possible tape of the President saying the “N” word, or the latest dirt on Omarosa. Nothing of that consequence. And by the way, I had to look up the spelling of the name Omarosa. That’s how much I care about her.
No, the following isn’t about really important things, it’s only whether the Lord’s prayer should be changed, as the Pope suggests.
Changes to Lord’s Prayer to Be Made Official in Italy
On Sunday, a relatively small group of white nationalists, under the banner of “Unite the Right,” chose to make an ostentatious celebration of the anniversary of their rally in Charlottesville — the one in which one of their number killed a counterprotester with his car. This time, they protested directly in front of the White House.
Spinal injuries can be like downed power lines – even if everything on either side of the injury is perfectly functional, the break can effectively shut down the whole system. Now, researchers at the University of Minnesota have designed a device that could link everything back together again. A silicone guide, covered in 3D-printed neuronal stem cells, can be implanted into the injury site, where it grows new connections between remaining nerves to let patients regain some motor control.
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is, in recent history (1994 – 2015), the most reversed federal court of appeals.
According to Article I, Section 8, Clause 9, “The Congress shall have the Power To: constitute Tribunals inferior to the supreme Court;” which by logical extension would mean they also have the power to dissolve them as they see fit.
With this latest demonstrably absurd ruling, is it time for Congress to act, dissolve and reconstitute the Ninth Circuit?

Ninth Circuit allows Mexican citizens to sue American Border Patrol agents
Just when you thought the stolen sovereignty and erasing of our borders by the Ninth Circuit couldn’t get worse, well, another court opinion comes out.
It’s bad enough that foreign nationals can invade our border, make demands on our agents, demand welfare, demand schooling, be counted in the Census, and claim citizenship for their children. Now foreign nationals can sue our border agents for doing their jobs and protecting us from the perils they foist upon our brave men and women.

James Clapper was named the director of National Intelligence in 2010 by President Obama. The American people were told that Clapper understood the importance of working with Congress and to keep Congress informed.
The words of Obama have not been borne out. We now know of the perjury before Congress that Clapper suborned. James Clapper lied to Congress about the metadata being assembled by the National Security Agency on American citizens. In the words of Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) :
“One of the most important responsibilities a senator has is oversight of the intelligence communities and can not do this job if they do not get straight answers to direct questions.”
James Clapper failed this test. His response, when brought out in the open by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, was:
