The LuLac Edition #3225, June 6th, 2016

Newt Gingrich (Photo: CNN)
Former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich essentially took himself off the short list for Vice President when he responded this way to Donald Trump’s tirade against a Judge hearing his case against Trump University. Gingrich if anything is a historian and although I disagreed with him many times, I will not deny that he is man of principle and truth.
Here’s what he had to say:

Hillary Clinton (Photo:
The AP reported that Hillary Clinton has clinched the Democratic nomination for President. This is type of a mixed bag for the Clinton people coming the day before the big primaries in Jersey and California. I’m sure the Secretary wanted to make the announcement on the stages of a primary victory.
Plus it might suppress voting in California allowing Bernie Sanders to think he is more relevant than he is.

Bobby Kennedy (Photo:
It should be noted that it is 48 years ago today that New York Senator Robert Kennedy was shot. Kennedy was making his way from his victory speech in Los Angeles when he was gunned down.
A little known fact about RFK was his involvement in the Cold War. As one of the president's closest White House advisers, Kennedy played a crucial role in the events surrounding the Berlin Crisis of 1961. Operating mainly through a private back channel connection to Soviet spy Georgi Bolshakov, he relayed important diplomatic communications between the American and Soviet governments.[ Most significantly, this connection helped the US set up the Vienna Summit in June 1961 and later defuse the tank standoff with the Soviets at Berlin's Checkpoint Charlie in October.
Kennedy would have had a good chance at the nomination had he not been gunned down on June 5th, 1968.

A few facts about D-DAY:
It was the largest amphibious invasion in history.
The invasion’s code name was Operation Overlord.
General Dwight D. Eisenhower commanded the operation, and plans were made to land in Normandy, west of where the German troops and artillery were built up.
The “D” stands for Day. D-Day and H-Hour stand for the secret day/time an operation is scheduled to begin.
Code names for the five beaches where the Allies landed: Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, and Sword.
The date June 5, 1944, was originally chosen for the invasion, but bad weather forced the Allies to postpone a day.
More than 13,000 aircraft and 5,000 ships supported the operation.
Allied casualties on D-Day have been estimated at 10,000 killed, wounded, and missing in action: 6,603 Americans, 2,700 British, and 946 Canadians. (Source: D Day
