  1. From an imaginary restraining order to a phantom drop in NATO spending Trump makes 99 false claims in two weeks "Tump made 22 of the false claims at a campaign rally in Hershey, Pennsylvania. He made 16 of them in a lengthy exchange with reporters during a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. The economy was Trump's top subject of dishonesty, with 25 false claims. He made 22 false claims about military affairs, largely on account of his presence at a NATO summit. He made 15 false claims about NATO itself, 11 about impeachment. Trump is now averaging 63 false claims per week since we started counting at CNN on July 8, 2019. He made 38 false claims last week, 61 the week before. He is now up to 1,450 total false claims since July 8. A breakdown of the lowlights from the last two weeks: The most egregious false claim: An imaginary restraining order......... Trump, an eager purveyor of rumor and insinuation, he told the crowd: "I don't know if it's true. The fake news will never report it. But it could be true. No, that's what I heard, I don't know." There is not a hint of evidence that the story is true. Page tweeted that it was a "lie." The most revealing false claim: An assault in Maryland........ The most absurd false claim: Rewriting campaign history Trump's general approach to history: if you don't like it, rewrite it...... Here's the full list of 99 false claims, starting with the new ones we haven't previously included in one of these roundups: ...... https://www.cnn.com/2019/12/21/politics/fact-check-trump-two-weeks-december/index.html?utm_source=twCNN&utm_content=2019-12-22T02%3A15%3A06&utm_term=link&utm_medium=social

Serious question’ ...... while calling his Meet the Press the “gold standard” was met with derision and laughter on the internet which has long hammered the NBC host for his failures to push back at guests making ridiculous assertions as well as his habit of not asking follow-up questions. .... https://www.rawstory.com/2019/12/internet-flabbergasted-after-chuck-todd-named-media-personality-of-the-year-is-this-a-joke-serious-question/
  6. BTW...........saw this & really enjoyed =============================== "The Two Popes" (2019) review- ".......Pope Francis is the first non-European Pope since the 8th century and the first ever from South America; his predecessor is the first to resign his position since 1415. Rather than dwell on these historical details, screenwriter Anthony McCarten and director Fernando Meirelles instead craft scenes that humorously play off what we already know about the eventual paths the two men will take. The first scene at the summer estate is a fine bit of comic frustration simply because we know Bergoglio is never going to get that paper signed. Essentially a two-hander, “The Two Popes” could have been a dry, somber affair like “Frost/Nixon” (which I liked, by the way). But the creative teams on both sides of the camera project a loose, sometimes flashy tone onto the material and the resulting joy is infectious........ https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/the-two-popes-movie-review-2019

  13. 'Christianity Today' editor responds to Trump: We did what we were called to do New Day A leading Christian magazine founded by late evangelist Billy Graham published an op-ed calling for President Donald Trump to be removed from office and urging evangelicals not to support him. The magazine's editor-in-chief Mark Galli joins CNN. ".......... “When Christians of any stripe support a cause that strikes me as manifestly immoral, it does damage to the cause that I've given my life to," says Mark Galli, editor- see: https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2019/12/20/christianity-today-mark-galli-berman-intv-bts-newday-vpx.cnn
  14. Trump Should Be Removed from Office- It’s time to say what we said 20 years ago when a president’s character was revealed for what it was. - Mark Galli is editor in chief of Christianity Today. "......the facts in this instance are unambiguous: The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents. That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral. The reason many are not shocked about this is that this president has dumbed down the idea of morality in his administration. He has hired and fired a number of people who are now convicted criminals. He himself has admitted to immoral actions in business and his relationship with women, about which he remains proud. His Twitter feed alone—with its habitual string of mischaracterizations, lies, and slanders —is a near perfect example of a human being who is morally lost and confused.......... https://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2019/december-web-only/trump-should-be-removed-from-office.html ============================================= Robert Maguire @RobertMaguire_ · 8h The President who paid hush money to a porn star over an affair he had while his third wife nursed his fifth child and admitted on camera, in front of a live audience that he's never asked God's forgiveness for anything is trying to give a religion lecture to...Christianity Today

  16. The “Bernie Blackout” Is in Effect — and It Could Help Sanders Win Sen. Bernie Sanders faced a media blackout that helped sink his 2016 run for president. Ahead of 2020, the trend continues: Sanders gets less media coverage and a higher rate of negative coverage than his top rivals for the Democratic nomination. But this time, says The Intercept’s D.C. Bureau Chief Ryan Grim, the blackout could actually help Bernie win. https://theintercept.com/2019/12/08/the-bernie-blackout-is-in-effect-and-it-could-help-sanders-win/
  17. 'Cats': Spay It - "From the moment Andrew Lloyd Webber decided to set the T.S. Eliot poetry collection Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats to music, Cats has felt like an escalating series of dares, or a Bialystock & Bloom scheme that accidentally became one of the biggest sensations in Broadway history. It did not seem likely that a plotless revue where cats either introduce themselves or introduce other cats would ignite public interest. Or that Grizabella's ascendence to the Heaviside Layer would last longer than the acid trip that summoned it to life. Or that a single song, "Memory," would be so transcendent that it could carry a production for decades........... In the true Cats tradition, the idea should have been scuttled in the testing phase, when the skin-tight melding of faces and bodies with "digital fur technology" looked glitchy and unsettling, like one of the ghosts from a Japanese horror movie. And yet director Tom Hooper and the studio pressed on, ........... https://www.npr.org/2019/12/19/787550587/cats-spay-it?utm_term=nprnews&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=npr
