I check the news several times each day in order to stay aware of what is happening in the world. I found several items in the news that could have devastating results. There is a situation in Syria where Assad is killing his own people. This is causing harsh words between Russia and the United States and fear among the citizens. Many people are wondering if World War III will break out at any minute, but still wanting to stop the genocide going on in Syria.
There is the FBI raid on the home and business of the personal attorney for the President of the United States. There are some very real questions about what is constitutional, whether or not the special counsel and the FBI have gone rogue, and how the attorney-client privilege is supposed to work.
There is President Trump’s call for National Guard units to be sent to the southern border to keep undocumented aliens out of the United States. It seems that most states are slow to send their guardsmen. A couple of states have quickly mobilized their units, and other states have refused or put limits on what their guard personnel can do.
We watched the arrogant owner of Facebook appear before a Senate committee to answer questions about why the company is treating conservatives unfairly and what they are doing with personal information. There are the continuing efforts by leftists to down any business that is pro-gun. Some businesses are standing firm, but many businesses are caving to leftist demands.
There is no doubt in my mind that these news items can be important to our nation. However, I have a difficult time focusing on any of them. There are too many crises happening without any real action being taken.
I do not want to see Hillary Clinton’s face or hear anything about her unless she is being indicted and sent to prison. She should have gone into retirement when she lost the election! I do not care if the Speaker of the House is retiring unless we will get someone who will stand up to the leftists. If we are getting another one just like our current speaker, what difference does it make? I may just stop checking the news!
