*How can anyone be surprised at the shooting of House Majority Whip Steven Scalise by a crazed Bernie Sanders follower with images like these circulating?*
New York city’s Shakespeare in the Park shows Julius Caesar in the form of President Trump being assassinated on stage. The New York Times, CNN and New York City sponsor this ‘art.’
Both Bernie Sanders and Nancy Pelosi have condemned the shootings in the park of the Republicans and others.
For some reason the left wing idealogues feel that they need to commit violence against people who follow Donald Trump or who disagree with them. Somehow individuals on the right side of the political spectrum forfeit their rights by their beliefs according to left wing extremists.
*With the annoying misdirection of the Mainstream Media (MSM), it is difficult to get a handle on just what transpired in the first 100 days of President Trump. We know that stock market advanced something like 12% and consumer confidence has risen to its highest level in 16 years although the MSM doesn’t mention those kinds of new items. Here is Judge Jeanine Pirro discussing the President’s first 100 days.*
*Consumer confidence remains high, according to the latest figures from The Conference Board. The readings remain around their highest levels in over a decade. For some reason the mainstream media doesn’t report much on this.*
I love riding my bike every day. I experience a wonderful physical pleasure pressing down on the pedals and feeling myself flying across the path. In addition, I am very happy that bike riding has also helped me to attain a level of good health higher than I ever enjoyed in my life. Those are the physical things. Very important to me. There are also other aspects of riding that I enjoy very much. I can’t tell you how many times that I have pedaled across the pavement and found myself bouncing around ideas for a blog post. Ideas connect, I do some phrasing and by the time I get home it is like I can dictate the post from my head.
This is one of those posts. I love John Fogerty and his wonderful upbeat music. Here is one he performed about ten years ago during the last administration.
*I grew up in the ’40’s. As kids we went to the movies on Saturday and saw double features of cowboy movies. Lots of gunslingers. There is something archetypal about them. A loner, quiet, deadly, mysterious, a scary guy.*
*The following was reported in the Daily Mail:*
*Here is an interview by Brooke Baldwin of CNN. The interviewee is Kassem Eid, a survivor of the 2013 Syrian chemical attack. He was brought to CNN to express his anxiety about the Syrian innocents. Baldwin brought Kassem back to CNN to try and frame a narrative about President Trump’s airstrike in Syria, but being unwilling to accept Syrian refugees. CNN did not expect the candor it got from this survivor.*
