The Morning Rant

You know what I've never seen Trump do? Punch down. When he tears someone a new one on Twitter, who is the target? It's either another politician, or a celebrity, or a journalist, or someone else in a position of power and privilege.

And it's usually someone who has attacked him first. I don't think I've ever seen him throw the first punch, but I won't swear to this.

Contrast this with the progressives, who always punch down. Especially the progressive media, which destroyed Richard Jewell's life, doxed Joe the Plumber, and found a woman who didn't think Trump was colluding with the Russians and doxed her, too. Also the Covington students, about which CNN joined the progressive hue-and-cry for their blood.

Oh, and don't forget Memories Pizza, a mom and pop business almost destroyed a by progressive lynch mob whipped up by the media

Of course progressives hate normal Americans and don't hesitate to show it. Obama called normal Americans "bitter clingers." Hillary Clinton said Trump voters were "deplorable" and "irredeemable" (a word, which, considering Hillary's Methodist religious upbringing, carries some weight).

But I don't recall Trump ever attacking any ordinary American who didn't vote for him, either singly or in general.

And then there's Joe Biden, a one-man gaffe tornado. If Trump ever tried to pull *any* sort of maladroit antics Biden does every week, he'd be strung up by his nuts. But Biden is immune from media criticism. He likes to yell at and pick fights with voters who disagree with him, call then names, threaten them with violence, and challenge them to push-up contests. Yes, I know a lot of this can be accounted by the fact that he's a demented old fart, and yet the progressives aren't doing an intervention, they're actually cheering him on. Yes, when Joe tells some guy he's full of shit, they want to see him do it *more*.

The mind boggles.

Biden is this close --><-- to taking a swing at somebody.

Progressives pride themselves as fighting against "oppression" by the powerful against the weak. They claim to be champions of 'the little guy'.

But from what I've seen, they're real bad at it.

"You're Full of Sh**!"

But listen to the rest of his answer. It's a bizarre, incoherent word salad that makes absolutely no sense.

Wait, On Whose Watch Does He Think It Happened?

Monday's celebs: Richard Burton, whose birth name was Richard Walter Jenkins, was the son of a Welch coal miner and the twelfth of thirteen children. His mother died while he was a toddler and his father later abandoned the family, leaving him to be raised by an elder sister. Our female celeb for Monday was Elizabeth Taylor, who needs no introduction, was known chiefly for being married a bunch of time, twice to Burton. Yes, they married, got divorced, then got married again, then got divorced again. They were in a number of movies together, notably 1963's big-budget spear-and-sandal spectacle, Cleopatra.

AoSHQ Weekly Prayer List

A personal note from FenelonSpoke:

Dear ASHQ praying friends,

Due to work and health issues I will only be posting praise reports, updates to the prayer list or new prayer requests this week. That will probably be the case for the rest of this month.

Any information you send that has your real name is kept confidential. I apologize for any prayer requests that may have been left out of the updates or requests.
