Happy Democrats

***Well, I'll bet the Democrats are chuckling at their good fortune today. 10 Republicans helped put Loretta Lynch over the top, she is now confirmed as our next Attorney General. The Republicans caved because they're scared little puppies over being called "racist." When will they learn that it doesn't matter what they do, the press and the Democrats are going to lie about them? One wonders if they'll ever get that.

The 10 Republicans who voted for her:

Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Orrin Hatch (Utah), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Susan Collins (Maine), Jeff Flake (Ariz.), Mark Kirk (Ill.), Rob Portman (Ohio), Thad Cochran (Miss.), Ron Johnson (Wis.) and Mitch McConnell (Ky.).

If you live in one of those states, I hope you let them know that they let the American people down. We sent them there to stop Obama, not help him destroy this country.  Lynch said she would support Obama's openly unconstitutional amnesty executive order, and would not commit to investigating Hillary Clinton's many scandals. She will be an Obama rubber stamp, exactly what we do not want. The excuse that anyone he picked would be awful doesn't hold water. These Senators swore an oath to uphold the Constitution, and instead they spit on it. Makes me sick.

 ***Here's something you don't see everyday: An Op-Ed extolling the benefits of animal testing. I'm all for it if it helps humans.

Unfortunately, the story requires an account, but the gist of it is there have been some major medical breakthroughs due to animal testing.

***Oh, but they said this would never happen: ACLU sues feds to force Catholic charities to provide abortions for illegal immigrants. FIRST of all, why is ANYONE providing abortions for illegal immigrants? The larger question though, of course, is the basic right to practice one's religion.

The ACLU is demanding government records detailing reproductive healthcare policies for immigrant children and teens in shelters operated by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). The USCCB has been contracted by the federal government to care for the surge of unaccompanied minors crossing into the U.S.
The group claims that the USCCB has been denying reproductive care for immigrants based on its religious doctrines and that by doing so the organization is breaking the rules of its contract with the federal government to provide necessary healthcare for immigrants.
The suit has sparked outrage among religious, anti-abortion, and civil rights groups who argue the ACLU is more concerned with bullying the Catholic church than helping vulnerable immigrants.
“Lawsuits like the one the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) just filed demanding all of the records on a faith-based provider of care and services to vulnerable children are destructive and divisive,” said Brian Walsh, president of the Civil Rights Research Center in a statement. “When it comes to religious freedom, some organizations that have had a laudable history of defending Americans’ religious civil rights and liberties are looking less and less like their former selves.”
The ACLU is just another arm of the Democrat party.

***Just can't think of the perfect caption...

The Statue of Liberty and Liberty Island were both been evacuated Friday afternoon after parks police received a report of a suspicious package, law enforcement sources tell NBC 4 New York.
Tourists were ferried off of the island after parks police patrolling with dogs near a visitors’ locker area picked up the scent of a suspicious package shortly before 1 p.m, sources say.
The NYPD’s bomb squad was called to the scene, along with EMS workers. A security sweep of the island is also being conducted.

***Our Founding Fathers loved books.

George Washington accumulated and read many books about agriculture, farming, fishing and even building. You may still see some of his book collection at his home, Mount Vernon.

Benjamin Franklin’s favorite books were the Bible and “Pilgrim’s Progress.” Franklin’s own book about electricity was the most popluar book in Europe and all the world for years. Ben was apprenticed to his brother, a printer, at an early age, which gave him an unusual access to a world of books. And he took advantage of it.

Patrick Henry didn’t take to books at an early age. He preferred fishing and hunting to learning. At least until he decided to study and become a lawyer.  We know he borrowed Thomas Jefferson’s lawbook, “Coke Upon Littleton,” wherein he made notes for his most impressive “Brutus” speech, which he gave after only 5 days as a member of Virginia’s House of Burgesses. Thereafter books became much more important to him.

John Adams, our second President, love and acquired many books. When John and Abigail were moving from Braintree to Boston, they leased a house on Battle Street, ironically enough called the “White House.” John set aside one of the rooms there to be his study. He agreed that he wouldn’t attempt to move his whole library, only those books he should need. Abigail responded:  “The books you don’t need have yet to be printed!”
