    *** Checkpoint, U.S.A.: Crossing the border into Trump’s America ***
    I don’t expect to ever leave the country, and Good Lord Willing, will never live in the Constitution-Free Zone up to 100 miles from any border. Little people with too much authority – they’re really scary when in positions like this.

    *** How anti-Semitic beliefs have taken hold among some evangelical Christians ***
    What’s with the “some” crap in that headline? End-timer ‘Christians’ love the Apartheid state, and very much dislike Jews. But they usually play nicer than this.

    ^^^Trump, she says, “is surrounded by a Zionist environment with completely different values from Christians. It’s kabbalist. It’s Talmudic values. Not the word of God.”
    In other words: It’s the Jews’ fault. ^^^

    For most of them, for now at least, I’d rephrase that to say it’s not Trump’s fault. On down the road, I just don’t know.

    *** This Art Program Ensures That The Next Generation Doesn’t Forget The Holocaust ***
    Learning history is a good thing. Hopefully these students will also learn about other nearly forgotten holocausts, the ones which haven’t been effectively trademarked.

    *** I’m Taiwanese American. Here’s Why I Stand by Hong Kong. ***
    I suppose this author means well, but he doesn’t seem very bright. Hong Kong is in a very different situation than Taiwan. Taiwan’s independence doesn’t hang on his “speaking out”, but on making itself as indigestible as possible to China.

    *** Will America’s ‘Least Sustainable City’ vote to kill rail transit? ***
    The “Least Sustainable” part is right. IMO major investments in this city are about as clever as doing the same in Miami. Better work on a water plan first, and if that doesn’t pan out, an even keeled abandonment.

    *** So We’re Just Cool With Foreign Governments Paying Our President’s Company, Huh? ***
    I propose a big round of applause to Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

    *** I think you mean there’s an insect-tinged problem in the NYT newsroom ***
    Funny! And as one person there says, “vicious, and completely deserved”

    *** An Ingenious Microscope Could Change How Quickly Disease Is Detected ***
    Though I haven’t had time to go through the 55 page pdf paper, I’m impressed. I’d ask why this is being done by a 2-man operation, and in 2019. Why hasn’t Doctors Without Borders been on this years ago – they have tons of money? 1/4% of their budget to proven inventors like this one could do wonders.
