HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF SUPPORT A SOLDIER? I met Kim Outlaw at a Veterans Passport to Hope event and WOW what an impressive veteran she is. Now she's working with Support a Soldier, an organization doing what the Pentagon can't/won't. They send needed items to soldiers in the field and Kim is coming on at 3 to talk about it!

SO WE'RE GOING TO GET THE MUELLER REPORT NEXT WEEK Well WE'RE not getting it, but Attorney General Bill Barr will and he will share a summary of the confidential report with Congress and the public. Is this going to be a big nothingburger? I'd be shocked if it wasn't. But you never know. We'll see when the summary comes out and what is leaked after that.
THE FBI WANTS TO SWAB YOUR CHEEK Because according to this article, they are building a massive database of DNA from EREBODY. You get arrested and they are gonna swab your mouth for DNA, then they are going to send it to the giant FBI database so if you commit a crime they are gonna catch you. I do not like this, not one bit. Here is an overview of the Rapid DNA bill that lead to this current situation.

EVEN WHEN TRUMP CHAMPIONS GAY RIGHTS IT'S NOT ENOUGH Presiden Trump has announced he is going to target nations that have laws on the books outlawing homosexuality. Good news, right? Not if you work for Out magazine, where they maintain that the only reason he's doing it is because Iran is a geopolitical foe. So effing what? If I were Trump I'd be tempted to say, "Screw you, get thrown off buildings then" but I'm sure he won't. And to be clear, I think this is good news for the gay population no matter why it's happening. Sorry they can't stop looking a gift horse in the mouth.
COULD AOC JUST BE ANOTHER SWAMP DWELLER? If you missed the Twitter kerfuffly about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's boyfriend having a House email account so he could keep up with her schedule, you didn't miss much. However, the guy who first reported that and got kicked off Twitter for doing so has done some more digging. Now he's discovered said boyfriend was paid as a "marketing consultant" by a PAC where AOC spent most of HER money. Almost the same amount the PAC paid her live-in boyfriend. Hmmmm. This might actually be something. I hope it is just so we won't constantly have her shoved down her throat anymore.

BERNIE SANDERS THINK BREAD LINES ARE SUPER COOL! And I wonder how this is going to play juxtaposed next to photos of starving Venezuelans or old photos of Soviet era bread lines. I'm going to say it, if you think Bernie Sanders is some sort of genius, I don't think you are very well educated about much.

HERE'S HOPING THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF CIVIL ASSET FORFEITURE If you don't know what that is, it's when the police seize property even when no arrest has been made. It's horrible, but the Supreme Court just handed it a huge setback. Read about it here.
