The following are excerpts from a MoveOn.org email I recently received. Yes, I receive MoveOn email alerts. It’s handy to get the pulse of the radical left.

Dear MoveOn member,

My name is Cyntoia Brown-Long. You may have heard my name on TV, social media, or if you’re one of the over 636,000 MoveOn members who signed a petition calling for my release from prison. But I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you my story myself and to say thank you.

I am a survivor of child sex trafficking. In 2004, at age 16, I was sentenced to a lifetime in prison for shooting one of my abusers in self-defense.

According to Wikipedia, “Brown said that Allen had paid her $150 to have sex with him, and that she feared for her life during their encounter, leading her to shoot him. Prosecutors argued that Brown killed Allen in order to rob him. Brown was found guilty and sentenced to 51 years to life. After renewed interest in her case in 2017, Governor Bill Haslam of Tennessee commuted her original sentence to 15 years.”

She was released from prison in August, 2019. read more

China and North Korea aren’t the Only Ones with Big Scary Missiles

from Zero Hedge:

US Military Tests ICBM Hours After Beijing Parades Missiles Through Tiananmen Square

Mere hours after the latest missile test by North Korea and Beijing’s parading of its ICBM arsenal through Tiananmen Square during the 70th anniversary celebration of Communist Party rule, the US military decided to carry out a missile test of its own on Wednesday, testing an unarmed Minuteman III ICBM.

The Minuteman was launched from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California at 1:13 am Pacific Time. The missile, which was equipped with a ‘reentry vehicle’, traveled 6,750 kilometers across the Pacific Ocean before touching down on the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands, according to the Air Force Global Strike Command.

A photo of the test shows the missile in a brilliant purple hue.

LGBTQ Agenda will be Forced on Illinois Children

Identity Politics Gone Wild! So what if reading, writing and arithmetic suffer. As long as our children know some figure from history was gay or dressed up like a woman. After all – what’s more important?

from Conservative Review:

American History: LGBTQ Edition

A new Illinois law requires Illinois schools to teach kids of all ages about the contributions of the LGBTQ community, the Chicago Tribune reported last month. Illinois Gov. J. B. Pritzker signed the Inclusive Curriculum Law August 9; it mandates that public schools teach students as early as possible about contributions lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people have made to U.S. state and national history. The details about why it passed and who passed it demonstrate just how much the LGBTQ lobby is targeting children to focus on a specific ideology, excluding others — with taxpayer dollars.

What the Illinois law mandates

While the bill passed handily in both the Illinois state House and Senate (60-42 and 37-17, respectively), its sponsors left it purposely vague. The Inclusive Curriculum Law simply says the teaching of U.S. and Illinois history in public schools “shall include a study of the roles and contributions of” LGBTQ people without specifying just how this should be done. read more

Joke of the Day

Okay, this one’s awful – funny, but awful.

A friend told me about his dinner trip out with his grandchildren. This is what he said. “Last week, I took my grandchildren to Denny’s. After our order arrived at our table, my six-year-old grandson asked if he could say grace.”

As we held hands and bowed our heads, he said, “God is good, God is great. Thank you Lord for this food and I would thank you even more if Grandpa gets us ice cream for dessert. And peace, liberty and justice for all. Amen!” read more

New Whistleblower Standard – Well That’s What I Heard!

Channeling my best Andy Rooney – Have you ever noticed that everything the democrats accuse the Republicans of is something they have already done or plan on doing?

It’s called projection and it’s quite common. As they accuse Donald Trump of strong-arming the Ukrainian president, we find out that Trump didn’t but Joe Biden did. The democrats are a collection of liars and cheaters, so they project their bad behavior on others.

Because they do it, they figure everyone must.

We’ve all done something similar from time to time – project our values or assumptions onto someone, something, or some circumstance.

In sales there is a maxim to never allow your values to cloud a transaction. You’re trying to sell something to someone and you hesitate to divulge the price because you assume that he or she will say it’s just too costly. You’ve “projected” your value system onto the other party. But just because you think something is too expensive doesn’t mean your customer will. Maybe they are accustomed to paying twice as much. How do you know?

And that, for good or ill, is projection. read more
