Mom brings up children in the way they should go.
The case of the missing 20-year old college student, is in and of itself, horrifying, but alarm bells should be going off for every American, now that we know 48 young people have vanished in the same state this month. Parents in the state of Iowa should be paying attention and might want to consider keeping closer tabs on their kids for a while.
The New York Post is reporting that the 20-year-old college student who is missing in Iowa is one of 48 young people who have vanished in the state this month, according to reports.
The seemingly alarming number of missing persons cases has sparked widespread panic on social media and a flood of conspiracy theories as the search intensifies for Mollie Tibbetts, who was last seen July 19.
“40 people have gone missing in Iowa in 10 days. 40. People. How is this possible ?!!!!!!!!!!!?!” posted one person on Facebook, adding: “keep tabs on your friends and family, be aware of everything and everyone around you.”
Here’s a close up look at the list of missing people in Iowa posted by Heather Loshaw:
The numbers: Companies in the private sector added 219,000 new employees to their payrolls in July, a payrolls processor estimated, showing that firms are managing to fill a record number of job openings despite growing shortages of skilled labor.
The increase in hiring was the strongest since February. Economists polled by Econoday had forecast a 173,000 increase, with estimates ranging from 150,000 to 220,000.
A man trying to rob a large home in Northern Virginia on Monday picked the wrong house — the homeowner shot him.
Resident Terri Mihokovich installed an alarm after someone tried to break in to her home. She hoped her neighbor’s quick action put an end to the crimes.
“It is a deterrent. Like, wow. At least he kind of learned a lesson this time,” she said.
Tragic, for sure, but they neglected a rule:
Don’t do stupid things in stupid places.
Really, if you are that clueless that they go riding bicycles as an American (takes about .01 seconds for locals to figure out) in foreign countries that are packed full of American hating terrorists is there any big surprise when you get killed?
The two Americans killed in a terror attack in Tajikistan have been identified as avid bicyclers Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan.
The Washington DC couple, who decided last year to leave their jobs and travel around the globe on bikes instead, were remembered as warm-hearted, adventurous and ‘larger than life’.
On Sunday, they and two other cyclists were killed when a driver allegedly rammed his car into them and joined his passengers in going after the cyclists with knives.
Austin had worked at the Department of Housing and Urban Development for seven years before he took off on his bike ride in July 2017.
Geoghegan worked as a senior admissions officer at Georgetown University before she agreed to join her boyfriend on the trip of a lifetime.
…the real problem started with the Civil Rights era, where thinking yourself morally superior to your opponents was easy. The elites have been chasing that high ever since, even when they have to invent entirely new kinds of prejudice to crusade against.
Each party sees in the other the devil. Mr. Trump is the savior of the country, confronting an utterly corrupt establishment. His critics view themselves as brave defenders of democracy, facing down a neofascist. The two sides are not altogether unhappy with what they see, for their separate views fortify each in their own righteousness.
American politics have never before felt so divisive, and the chances of this soon changing appear slim. The tone of political discourse slips lower and lower. Donald Trump seems unable to refer to an adversary, current or former, without adding an epithet: Crooked Hillary, Crazy Joe Biden, Cryin’ Chuck Schumer, et alia. What these people and his other opponents must call Mr. Trump in private cannot be printed in a family newspaper.
If there are any peacemakers among either the Democrats or the Republicans, they have yet to appear.
Politico reporter Marc Caputo faced backlash on Twitter after he mocked President Donald Trump’s supporters for heckling CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta, calling the president’s supporters “garbage” and saying they didn’t have any teeth.
Acosta checked in with CNN host Wolf Blitzer Tuesday night to report on the environment of the Trump supporters at the upcoming rally in Tampa Bay, Florida on Tuesday evening. He said they were chanting things like “CNN sucks” and “fake news.” He would later post videos on Twitter showing the crowd chanting, prompting reporters and Democratic figures to come to his defense and condemn the crowd for verbally attacking the media.
“Just a sample of the sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa. I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt. We should not treat our fellow Americans this way. The press is not the enemy,” Acosta tweeted.
In a now-deleted tweet, Caputo commented on the video, saying, “If you put everyone’s mouths together in this video, you’d get a full set of teeth.”
In another deleted tweet, he responded to a tweet castigating his mockery of Trump supporters. “Oh no! I made fun of garbage people jeering at another person as they falsely accused him of lying and flipped him off. Someone fetch a fainting couch,” Caputo wrote.
Two points: (1) Yes, this is what the press thinks about Trump supporters, and this now-deleted tweet was an honest reflection of that. It’s totally hypocritical for people like Acosta to clutch their pearls about Trump’s “rhetoric” given how they treat, and talk about, his supporters. And as for their fear that Trump’s “rhetoric” might lead to violence, note how they skip right over the fact that Democrat James Hodgkinson shot GOP Congressman Steve Scalise as he tried to massacre the Republican House leadership.
(2) What’s worse is, Caputo’s actually one of the better political reporters, willing to report stuff that hurts Democrats and helps Republicans without sweeping it under the rug. That’s good, but if he thinks this way, what are the rest like?

Trump’s victory tore the mask from the Democrats leaving them nothing but rage. Formerly mainstream Democrats are quick to embrace every insane lefty position from abolishing borders to supporting Hamas, not because they understand or believe in them, but because they’re “resisting” Trump.
The socialists are having a moment. At least if you believe the media
But if the socialists were really having a moment, their big show wouldn’t be a 28-year-old birdbrain whose big achievement was beating a boring white guy in a Hispanic district he didn’t even live in.
If you’re going to take over the Democrats, you need something more to show for it than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezor a senile socialist who came in number 2 in the primaries and then again in the DNC.
The Democrats are adopting socialist ideas wholesale. The 2020 Dem nominee will run on a guaranteed minimum income or ‘Welfare for All”. Along with free health care, free college and free copies of Das Kapital. And socialism polls brilliantly with the four core Dem bases of angry government workers, angry college students, angry welfare recipients and San Francisco eco-billionaires who keep all their money in Caribbean banks. But that’s because the Democrats have no ideas except hating Trump and Republicans.
Eight years of Obama ushered in primary elections notable for a nominee who jumped on every bandwagon she could catch with both feet, her socialist ankle biter who flip-flopped almost as much as she did, even flipping and flopping on the question of whether he was a Democrat, a distant third place loser running on painting all the electricity green, and a fourth placer still running against the Iraq War.
The House Dems have switched their slogan twice and no one cares. Legislative visionaries like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have never had an idea that didn’t involve their own careers. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton hollowed out the DNC and left behind a bankrupt dysfunctional shambles.
And they’re blaming that on the Russians instead of on their own self-serving shenanigans.
It’s unclear how the temporary order can be enforced. The plans were already placed online days ago and downloaded thousands of times and posted online elsewhere.

NPR gets it. Let’s be clear about what has just happened. A federal circuit court judge has issued a prior restraint on speech (it’s attempting to block the spread of information; it is not blocking the lawful home manufacture of firearms) that is already thoroughly and completely moot. The files are out. They’re all over the internet. They’ve been copied and reproduced. The judge’s order can’t change that fact.
And BTW judgie-wudgie:
