Reality Strikes Back
Two days ago, Barack Obama was bragging about how good the economy supposedly was and blaming right-wing media for talking it down. Based on [Friday’s] jobs report, Obama might order drone strikes on Fox News and Rush Limbaugh’s EIB headquarters! Experts expected that at least 160,000 new jobs were created last month. Reality struck back with a vengeance [Friday] morning. According to the Labor Department’s report, only 38,000 new jobs were created last month — the worst level of job creation in at least five years.

Experts expected that at least 160,000 new jobs were created last month. Reality struck back with a vengeance [Friday] morning. According to the Labor Department’s report, only 38,000 new jobs were created last month — the worst level of job creation in at least five years.
There’s even more bad news. Jobs figures for March and April were revised downward dramatically, representing a loss of nearly 60,000 jobs.
Violence erupted at a Donald Trump rally in San Jose, California, [Thursday] night. Once again, left-wing demonstrators waved Mexican flags and burned Trump hats and the American flag. When the event ended, attendees were assaulted as they tried to leave.
One woman was pelted in the face with eggs. A man was hit in the head from behind and left bleeding from the wound. Another, according to a local news report, was “chased down like prey.”
CNN reported that some were holding signs reading, “We Need Socialism.” One man had a sign that read, “This is Mexico! You are not welcome on Native/Mexican Soil.” For the record, San Jose is about 430 miles north of the Mexican border.
Many liberals were disgusted by the violence. Reporter John Harwood tweeted, “It is repulsive that anti-Trump protestors are beating up Trump supporters. Those responsible should be locked up.”
The radical left-wing outfit Mother Jones couldn’t deny the truth, reporting with this headline, “Donald Trump Supporters Violently Attacked in San Jose.” Even Cher was appalled.
Meanwhile, In the Real World…
I could go on at length about these next few items, but I think the headlines speak for themselves, especially in the context of the urgent need for border security and immigration reform.

Splits On The Left
Maya Dillard Smith, a black woman, quit her job last week. Was bigotry and harassment to blame for her quitting? Sort of. I’ll let her explain what happened:
“I have shared my personal experience of having taken my elementary school age daughters into a women’s restroom when shortly after three transgender young adults, over six feet [tall] with deep voices, entered. My children were visibly frightened, concerned about their safety and left asking lots of questions for which I, like many parents, was ill-prepared to answer.”
So she began asking questions about President Obama’s transgender mandate forcing schools to allow boys who think they are girls to use the girls’ restrooms. But her employer had no tolerance for her commonsense values.
So, Dillard Smith, who has degrees from Berkeley and Harvard, quit her job… as executive director of the Georgia ACLU. She was reportedly one of only three black ACLU state directors.
She blasted the ACLU for being intolerant and refusing to “engage in dialogue.” She said the radical group is “a special interest organization that promotes” only “certain progressive rights … based on who is funding the organization’s lobbying activities.”
Dillard Smith’s experience is another reminder that black Americans supported traditional marriage in greater percentages than white Americans.
Conservatives need to be reaching out to the black community on values issues.
