After all the smiling, smirking, and sometimes gnarly-faced reports by America's leading "journalists" that there is "no" proof that Obama wiretapped Trump---as Trump has alleged---David Nunes (R-CA), Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is saying, "Hey, look what I found."
Jim Wallis, leader of the religious Left, relying heavily on what he read in the New York Times, is calling President Trump a "liar" and the White House a "House of Lies"---in an article written the day before the latest revelation by Chairman Nunes.
The American people are left to ask ourselves, "Who's lying now?"

Sears Holding, once the largest US retailer, is warning investors about its ability to continue as a going concern.
The Sears catalog inspired moms to buy from home, and kids to dream of what could be...for birthdays and Christmas. It defined post-WWII American consumerism.
However, decisions made---or not made in the past 10 years, have led to the near inevitable fall of this American icon.
Its eminent collapse leaves a life lesson for all of us.

A black 5th grade student has been "sold" by white kids in a lesson---in public school--- about colonization and slavery.
CBS 2 reports, "When it comes time for fifth graders to learn about the history of colonization and slavery, it's always a sensitive subject."
Of course it's sensitive---and one of the reasons for lack of healing on the subject of slavery is the misguided obsession on the part of public education to indoctrinate rather than educate.
And the dogged determination by some, including a former US President, to continue rubbing salt in the deep wounds of racism, for political reasons.
What was the teacher thinking? What was the motive?

Not since the Civil War has America been so divided.
We're divided over healthcare, taxes, immigration, marriage, family, abortion, even how to identify human gender---religious freedom, and the role, if any, religion should play in our society.
And we're divided over the national budget---what to cut, what not to cut.
Ironically, most of these differences will ultimately be decided by the courts, not by Congress.
Pastor David Jeremiah, in an op-ed article, is sounding a warning---"Evangelicals, don't get distracted, it's still all about the Supreme Court."

President Trump, as promised during the campaign, is cutting the out of control spending in our federal budget.
In the noise of rage over the weekend, we heard the declaration that Trump is killing Big Bird, because he is de-funding public broadcasting---and he is trying to kill grandma because he is de-funding meals on wheels.
To all of us who love Big Bird and grandma---I've got good news.
