Joe Biden and Ronald Reagan comments are mostly about issues of National interest.  The majority of our “IS IT TRUE” columns are about local or state issues so we have decided to give Mr. Biden and Mr. Reagan exclusive access to our newly created “LEFT JAB and RIGHT JAB”  column. They now have exclusively to discuss national or world issues that they feel passionate about.
We shall be posting the “LEFT JAB” AND “RIGHT JAB” several times a week.  Oh, “Left Jab” is a liberal view and the “Right Jab is representative of the more conservative views. Also, any reader who would like to react to the written comments of the two gentlemen is free to do so.


  1. Finally this confirms what all with a working brain suspected, the horrific Easter suicide bombings in Sri Lanka were perpetrated by Islamic terrorists. Remember, when Obama said Islam “teaches peace”.

    Radical Islamist Terrorists Blamed for Sri Lanka Carnage, National Emergency Declared

    A local Islamist terrorist group called National Thowfeek Jamaath was responsible for multiple Easter Sunday suicide bomb attacks against Christians and luxury hotel guests in Sri Lanka, government officials on Monday revealed.

    Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne told a news conference that all the bombers were Sri Lankan citizens. Earlier, a government forensic crime investigator said an examination of the Islamist attackers’ body parts showed that they were suicide bombers….

    The U.S. State Department, meanwhile, warned of further attacks in a revised travel advisory, urging increased caution and adding: “Terrorist groups continue plotting possible attacks in Sri Lanka.”

    The bombings, Sri Lanka’s deadliest violence since a devastating civil war ended a decade ago on the island nation, killed at least 290 people with more than 500 wounded, on Easter Sunday.

    Most of those killed were Sri Lankans. But the three bombed hotels and one of the churches, St. Anthony’s Shrine, are frequented by foreign tourists, and Sri Lanka’s Foreign Ministry said the bodies of at least 27 foreigners from a variety of countries were recovered.

    The blast at St Anthony’s Shrine, an historic Catholic Church, was so powerful that it blew out much of the roof, leaving roof tiles, glass and splintered wood littering the floor that was strewn with bodies.



    • How pitiful is it when left wing Democrats won’t even acknowledge the horrific terrorist attack on Christians in Churchs:

      Hillary, Obama, Bernie Avoid Saying “Christian” Or “Churches” In Sri Lanka Statements

      While President Trump and several other notable leaders offer their condolences and help to Sri Lanka, democrat politicians in America go out of their way to avoid saying the words “Christian” and “churches” in their statements.

      Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both refer to Christians as “Easter worshippers.”

      Credit where it’s due, Tulsi Gabbard and Beto O’Rourke both manage to reference Christianity.


      • Poor wounded JethroBodine, still covering for the right-wing hatred fostered by Trump

        What Is Crucial In The Wake of RIGHT-WING Terrorism

        The vicious terrorist attacks at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand on March 15 were a punch to the gut for peace-loving people all over the world. Only the most heartless of individuals could feel nonchalant about 70 innocent children, women, and men being killed or maimed mercilessly as they prayed

        However, even a brief glimpse at comments on social media confirms that among the outpouring of sadness and shock, there are numerous sick individuals who glory in the shooters deliberately evil actions. White supremacy, in all its horrific manifestations, is clearly alive and well

        The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security warned in a 2017 intelligence bulletin that white supremacist groups had carried out more attacks in the U.S. than any other domestic extremist group over the past 16 years. And officials believe they are likely to carry out more

        The vast majority of white people do not support violent acts of terrorism but hurtfully silent when acts of terrorism are committed by non-Muslims, with Muslims as the victims

        When a shooter yells “Allahu akbar” before killing innocent people, the public furor is obvious and palpable. Terror attacks by Muslims receive 375% more press attention. The perpetrator is often portrayed as a “maniac” and a representative of an inherently violent faith. In the wake of an attack committed by a Muslim, everyone from politicians to religious leaders to news anchors calls on Muslim individuals and organizations to disavow terrorism

        But when white men kill Muslims en masse, there is significantly less outrage. People try to make sense of the shooters’ vile actions, looking into their past for trauma, mental illness, or addiction that will somehow explain why they did what they did. Various news outlets humanized the shooter with bold headlines that labeled him an “angelic boy who grew into an evil far-right mass killer” or an “ordinary white man obsessed with video games,” and even “badly picked on as a child because he was chubby” Those descriptions, which evoke sympathy rather than revulsion, are reserved for white mass murderers

        Trump has REFUSED to condemn or speak out against right-wing terrorists (even in America) or condemn white supremacy. After the Christchurch attacks, millions were not taking to the streets to protest right-wing extremism. World leaders were not linking arms in a dramatic march against white supremacist terrorism. And no one was demanding that white men, in general, disavow terrorism

        But that would be unreasonable, right? To expect all white men to condemn the vile actions of an individual they don’t even know? Unreasonable though it may be, such expectations are placed on Muslims all the time

        If you are not a white supremacist, nor a bigot, nor a racist, if you truly oppose these ideologies, then you must do more than remain in your comfortable bubble. Speak up. Spread love. Fix problems on whatever level you can, to the best of your ability. If you are in a leadership position, the weight on your shoulders is heavy to not shirk your duty. To be passive, selfish, apathetic, or lazy is to enable hatred to thrive, and then, whether you intended to or not, you are on the side of the extremists. Which side are you on? Decide and act

        “A person may cause evil to others not only by his actions but by his inaction, and in either case, he is justly accountable to them for their injury”
        John Stuart Mill, On Liberty


          • pig73 – And JethroBodine pulls crap from Breitfart, Gateway, Thinker, and a bunch of right-wing blog hacks. I use facts, you use BS

            Catch up!

          • “Muslim Matters” webpage = facts? Comrade, your tin foil hat is on too tight today.

    • There are STILL zero claims of responsibility by whoever did the bombings, JethroBodine

      The French news agency AFP reported that Sri Lankan Police Chief Pujuth Jayasundara issued an intelligence alert to top officers 10 days earlier warning that suicide bombers may hit “prominent churches”

      According to the report the alert said “A foreign intelligence agency has reported that the NTJ [National Thowheeth Jama’ath] is planning to carry out suicide attacks targeting prominent churches as well as the Indian high commission in Colombo”

      The NTJ was accused of vandalizing Buddhist statues last year, but has never carried out any terrorist acts remotely as murderous and sophisticated as the coordinated bombings on Sunday


      Sri Lanka also has a long history of violence by the former separatist organization Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), WHICH WAS NOT A MUSLIM ORGANIZATION AT ALL, but whose “Black Tigers” were some of the first and most effective suicide bombers on the world scene


      • This will come as a shock to no one but Comrade Reagan, who was hoping the Sri Lanka terrorists were the same MAGA supporters that ruffed up his pal Jussie Smollet:

        ISIL claims responsibility for Sri Lanka attacks

        The Amaq news agency, which has links to the Islamic State militant group, reported on Tuesday that the group has claimed responsibility for Sunday’s coordinated bombing attacks in Sri Lanka.

        The agency said Islamic State fighters carried out the attacks against Christians and people from coalition countries. But it offered no further information, and gave no evidence to support the group’s claim.

        Investigators in Sri Lanka have detained 40 people, including members of an Islamic extremist group in the country. They say foreign terrorist groups were likely behind the deadly attacks.

    • Remember, when Obama said Islam “teaches peace”.

      Remember when Obama didn’t say him and Chairman Kim “Fell in Love” before the dirt on top of Otto Warmier’s casket even had time to begin to settle?

      Remember when Big O didn’t say there were good Nazis and wasn’t high fiveing with Russians in the “No Americans allowed” Oval Office the day after firing an FBI Director?

      Remember when there was a swamp to worry about instead of a cesspool?

      The new financially liberal Russian Republican motto for 2020; “Helsinki or bust, because treason is a must”

      MAGA Today, MAGA Tomorrow, MAGA Forever.

      Good God Ya All!….

  2. Don’t expect to see this in the left wing main stream press.

    Christians remain one of the most persecuted religious groups in the world. While Christian persecution takes many forms, it is defined as any hostility experienced as a result of identification with Christ. Christian torture remains an issue for believers throughout the world including the risk of imprisonment, loss of home and assets, physical torture, beheadings, rape and even death as a result of their faith.

    Trends show that countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East are intensifying persecution against Christians, and perhaps the most vulnerable are Christian women, who often face double persecution for faith and gender.

    Every day we receive new reports of Christians who face threats, unjust imprisonment, harassment, beatings and even loss of family because of their faith in Jesus.

    Every month, on average:

    345 Christians are killed for faith-related reasons
    105 Churches and Christian buildings are burned or attacked
    219 Christians are detained without trial, arrested, sentenced and imprisoned


    • A blog by a group that ONLY serves Christians?

      BZZZZ, JethroBodine, get facts and not hyperbole

  3. Good news for all Americans:
    Trump Will Definitely, Definitely Be Re-Elected

    No president in modern times has failed to be re-elected while running with an expanding economy at his back. President Trump will definitely, definitely be re-elected.

  4. Just when you thought left wing liberals couldn’t get any crazier, they do. Amazingly they seem intent in trying to destroy the tax base that supports all their nonsense.

    If the Big Apple is to become the Green Apple, it will have to ban the steel and glass towers that form its signature skyline, according to Mayor Bill de Blasio.

    De Blasio, speaking on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” said that city’s most iconic structures – the tall skyscrapers seen from miles away – are the “biggest source of emissions” in New York City. The drastic change, and a switch to only renewable energy within five years, are necessary for Gotham to embrace the Green New Deal, de Blasio said.

    “We are putting clear, strong mandates” to lower emissions, he said, warning property owners will face massive fines unless buildings are retrofitted….

    “The first of any major city on the Earth to say to building owners, ‘you’ve got to clean up your act, you’ve got to retrofit, you’ve got to save energy,’” he said. “If you don’t do it by 2030 there will be serious fines, as high as $1 million or more for the biggest buildings.”


    • Green New Deal Supported By Majority Of Conservative Republicans

      A poll conducted by Yale University’s Program on Climate Change Communication finds that a Green New Deal, designed to transition the country away from fossil fuels to renewable energy, has widespread, bipartisan support

      The poll found that, of all registered voters, 81 percent are in favor of a Green New Deal. Support among Democrats and Independents is even higher, with 92 percent of Democrats proclaiming they “somewhat support” or “strongly support” Green New Deal legislation.

      The most surprising result is the broad support among Republicans, 64 percent of whom signaled their support to pollsters. Even 57 percent of self-identified “Conservative Republicans” backed the Green New Deal plan

      The same poll found 70 percent of Americans believe in global warming, with 57 percent agreeing environmental damage is caused by humans

      Another poll from Program on Climate Change Communication found that 70 percent of Americans believe in global warming, with 57 percent agreeing environmental damage is caused by humans

      Instead, corporate and political intransigence is the biggest obstacle to meeting the immense reforms recommended by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)


      • Nice try Comrade Reagan, you forgot this part of the poll:

        There was, however, one major caveat in the poll’s results: Few were aware of plans for a Green New Deal prior to being polled. With 82 percent claiming to have heard “nothing at all” about a Green New Deal legislation, the vast majority of poll respondents were reacting specifically to the description provided.

        And most importantly Comrade, there was no cost given for the Green Deal to turn all of America into Cuba. No airplanes, no cars and no cows. Yep, the Republicans are all for that OAC nonsense.

        • JethroBodine: BZZZZ! Still striking out, we see

          While 69 percent of Republicans have heard a lot about the GND, 81 percent of Fox viewers have, and 80 percent of Republicans strongly oppose it,and 91 percent of Fox viewers do

          A recent Media Matters analysis found that Fox has discussed the GND more than CNN and MSNBC combined. Committed right-wingers, most of the Fox audience, have heard about the GND and have been brainwashed to hate it

          Another recent poll confirmed by Data For Progress did a follow-up poll on the GND, six weeks after its initial polling (which found strong support across demographics) and found that, in the time that’s elapsed since the GND was introduced “Fox News viewers have fully bought into the anti-GND tropes to the point at which they understand the policy on Fox’s terms”

          For Fox viewers, the GND is a disaster that gets rid of some things and bans other things, including cows (which is a right-wing BS point). Fox Noise is doing the same thing to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the GND’s sponsor. It did the same thing to Barack Obama, the Affordable Care Act, the stimulus during the Great Recession, the Waxman-Markey climate bill, and everything Hillary Clinton ever did or said. It’s doing the same thing to Russia-Trump investigation special counsel Robert Mueller

    • Name The Much-Criticized Federal Program That Has Saved The U.S. $2.3 Trillion In Less Than 10 Years (Hint: It Starts With Affordable)

      One month after the ACA had passed, the Office of the Actuary of the Department of Health and Human Services projected its financial impact in a report entitled “Estimated Financial Effects of the ‘Patient Protections and Affordable Care Act’,as Amended” where the government’s official record-keeper estimated that health care costs under the ACA would reach $4.14 trillion per year in 2017 and constitute 20.2 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP)

      Fast forward to December 2018, when that same office released the official tabulation of health care spending in 2017. Cumulatively from 2010 to 2017 the ACA reduced health care spending a total of $2.3 trillion. In 2017 alone, health expenditures were $650 billion lower than projected, and kept health care spending under 18 percent of GDP. It did all of this while expanding health coverage to more than 20 million previously uninsured Americans. Compared to the 2010 projections, the government’s Medicare bill in 2017 was 10 percent ($70 billion) less, and spending for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program was a whopping $250 billion below expectations (partially due to the failure of some states to expand the program)

      Hospital readmissions for beneficiaries dropped 10.4% since the ACA became law. In one year, that drop translates into 3,789 beneficiaries who avoided an unnecessary return to the hospital. Nationally, this means that an estimated 87,000 lives PER YEAR have been saved

      HARD FACT: That equals OVER 783 million lives in nine years!

      Put another way, health care spending in 2017 was $2,000 less per person than it was projected to be. And for the 176 million Americans who have private employer-sponsored insurance, their lower premiums averaged just under $1,000 per person. Barack Obama pledged on the campaign trail and as president that he would sign a health care bill that lowered family health insurance premiums by $2,500. Conservative politicians and pundits roundly mocked him. Yet the ACA has more than delivered on that promise, saving about $4,000 per family. And these lower health care premiums probably contribute to the recent rise in workers’ wages.

      At least three trends make it hard for Americans to appreciate these lower costs. First, employers are foisting more of the cost of health insurance onto employees. Employees’ share of health premiums has gone up 32 percent since 2012 while the employer portion has gone up just 14 percent. Second, drug prices are rising and Americans are finding copays for them more and more onerous. Third, more and more Americans are enrolled in high-deductible health plans. For them, a $2,000 or $3,000 deductible is stressful even if they never actually pay it

      The ACA changed how physicians and hospitals are paid, shifting toward more value-based payments. It required reducing wasteful and expensive readmissions and encouraged efficient redesign of care. And it spurred the private sector, insurers and employers, to try their own payment reforms, such as reference pricing, to control costs

      HARD FACTS: If Trump and the right-wing get their way:

      21 million Americans could lose their health insurance if the Affordable Care Act is overturned
      133 million Americans have a pre-existing medical condition that could raise their premiums or deny them coverage altogether if they sought insurance without the protection of the Affordable Care Act
      171 million Americans no longer face caps on expensive treatments
      60 million Medicare beneficiaries would face changes to medical care and possibly higher premiums
      2 million young adults 26 and under are covered by their parents’ insurance under the Affordable Care Act
      46.5 million non-elderly Americans (17.8%) were uninsured in 2010 before the Affordable Care Act was passed, almost double the latest figures of 27 million
      42% is by how much the uninsured population has dropped under the Affordable Care Act

      Is this what MAGA looks like? Having people choose between paying rent or buying critical medication that keeps them alive? At a time when one in four Americans are forgoing needed health care because they simply can’t afford to see their doctor or buy their prescription drugs, the Trump administration is making the situation worse

      Despite constant criticism and right-wing sabotage, the Affordable Care Act has successfully expanded health insurance coverage, even though it included individuals with pre-existing conditions, and controlled runaway health care costs. We need to build on its tremendous cost-control success


    • Aw here we go. Another hairy leg that has no chance of dying in child birth and no chance of having to give up employment to stay home with a special needs child dictating to the women who do while at the same time throwing 24,000 lives under the bus for political reasons.

      DIY abortions have been going on since 1500 BC shar pie. And even though abortion now is about as safe as getting your teeth cleaned, your solution would resort to 1500 BC.

      DIY – Coat hangers etc. etc. etc. etc.

      I’m not going to respond to you about this topic again because if you believe you are correct on this issue, then I want you to agree to let Alexandria Ocasio Cortez decide whether you get surgery or not if you get prostate cancer.

      Fair is fair right?….

  7. because you can not defend KILLING a live baby………….you regTator skirted the issue…………..infanticide…….
