1st Afternoon Tweet

– “People are not being told that the Republican Party is on track to pick up two seats in the U.S. Senate, and epic victory: 53 to 47.

Is that true? I wasn’t certain.

I googled the question:

“What 2 senate seats are still being counted from the 2018 election?”

There are results. For example, click here for one article and you’ll learn that voters in Florida and Mississippi are waiting for their final counts.

The president’s statement is false. Media agencies are providing the information.

– The Fake News Media only wants to speak of the House, where the Midterm results were better than other sitting Presidents.

Ignoring the “fake” label, major news outlets are covering election outcomes, including those in Florida. For instance, off the top of my head, I can say that Florida Senate candidate Rick Scott (R) showed up in D.C. for freshman orientation without know for a fact that he has won his state’s election.

The Republican incumbent in Mississippi, still waiting on her election results, made a huge public gaffe recently when she said something about a public hanging.

Why is the president even tweeting about this?

2nd and 3rd Afternoon Tweets

Both tweets contain video clips covering the Presidential Medal of Freedom Ceremony held November 16, 2018.

1st and 2nd Evening Tweets

3rd and 4th Evening Tweets | Immigration

Is it possible to love one’s country, and need to flee that country because of dangers there?

Is it possible to feel pride for one’s country, and nonetheless understand that it is imperfect?

Does waving the flag of one’s homeland automatically signify a con job?

Consider this:

At every state house in each state, the likelihood is strong that visitors will see two flags waving. They’ll see the state’s flag and the U.S. flag.

Is that ironic? Is that a devious con?Or does that suggest that people can love both their homeland, their state, and their country.

People coming to the United States have made a choice to make the U.S. their new home and country.

Shall we welcome them, and invite them to become full members of our communities?

Or will they be greeted with suspicion, hatred and derision for being braver than ourselves?
