The LuLac Edition #3899, October 11th, 2018



The Justice Department is trying to force Facebook to disclose information about thousands of people who “liked” a page opposing president Donald Trump.
The DoJ wants to access all the information from the profiles of three activists connected to the “DisruptJ20” protests on the day of Trump’s January inauguration. The protests turned violent in part and, with a couple hundred people having been charged over the Washington, D.C. riots, the authorities are going after online information relating to that event.
Meantime Facebook nd Twitter are filled with responses from people like me who take on Diaper Don and his supporters. Feel free to check out my profile!
Fredom of speech, even for those who hate Diaper’s itty bitty feelings.


AP reports thatfFollowing the bitterly partisan, acrimonious confirmation battle over Associate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., warned in an interview on Tuesday that heated political rhetoric has the potential to turn deadly.
"I fear that there's going to be an assassination," Paul told a Kentucky radio show. "I really worry that somebody is going to be killed, and that those who are ratcheting up the conversation ... they have to realize they bear some responsibility if this elevates to violence."
The Kentucky Senator should realize that it was his sainted Tea Party that started the violence in 2010 over Health Care and that it was his party that screamed “Lock Her Up” over and over again. Hell the dumb asses are still doing it! This time to Feinstein. But bring up a legitimate question about an alleged sexual assault and they get their itty bitty feelings hurt and cry wah, wah!!!


John Chrin’s campaign announced that John had received the Women for Trump NEPA endorsement for his campaign to represent Pennsylvania’s 8th congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“John Chrin shares our values and our support for President Donald Trump’s America First agenda.” said Betsy Green, manager of Women for Trump NEPA. “John’s opponent, Rep. Matt Cartwright is an obstructionist to the President’s agenda. Just as the silent majority stepped up to put the President in office in 2016, we must vote for strong supporters of our President Trump like John Chrin to help him drain the swamp. John will work with President Trump to build the wall, secure our borders, and put an end to the illegal practice of sanctuary cities. John’s opponent has a long history and voting record of supporting sanctuary cities.”
“I am thrilled to announce that Women for Trump NEPA have endorsed my campaign!” said Chrin. “Like President Trump in 2016, I am a business leader and political outsider, who has never before ran for office. I believe in the America First agenda being pursued by our President Donald Trump. I have the business sense and common sense needed to help support that agenda in Congress. I am fighting for more jobs and economic prosperity for Northeastern Pennsylvania. I look forward to working with Women for Trump NEPA to win a victory in November.”
John is a 10th generation Pennsylvanian, Monroe County resident, political outsider, and successful self-made business leader with over thirty years of experience in the private sector. He has created thousands of jobs over his career and will use this vast experience for the benefit of Northeastern Pennsylvania.

As he has long said, Congressman Cartwright’s number one priority is to bring good-paying, family-sustaining jobs to Northeastern Pennsylvania. While the people of the 8th Congressional District of Pennsylvania are known for valuing hard work, the recent recession has created a lasting impact.
To create jobs, Congressman Cartwright will act to ensure that Congress is investing in infrastructure, and that the 8th District is getting its share of these projects. Pennsylvania has thousands of structurally deficient bridges that need repair and thousands of unemployed workers who have the skills to correct this issue. The Congressman will act to ensure that the two are linked. Also, Congressman Cartwright will work to expand rail service to the district and bring new clean energy jobs to the people of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
While addressing our immediate needs is important, Congressman Cartwright also recognizes that we need to create long-term, sustainable jobs so that future generations of Northeastern Pennsylvanians will live in prosperity. To accomplish this goal, Congressman Cartwright will act to bolster our public education system and ensure that this generation of Americans can compete in the world-wide marketplace.
The engine that drives the economy of northeastern Pennsylvania and the United States is small business. Congressman Cartwright will work to ensure that the small businesses in the 8th district are on a level playing field with their larger competitors, so that their growth can continue.


GOP Congressional candidate in the 9th Dan Meuser has been using fear, scare tactics and attack ads since he began his campaign. Like Danville is going to become a Sanctuary City. This is Lou Barletta’s old district and Meuser will follow in Lou’s footsteps caring more about national issues rather than the local ones.
The latest Meuser missive links Denny and Nancy Pelosi. Jeez these GOP strategists must have dry thoughts and wet dreams about Nancy if that’s all they got.
Wolfe fought back with a rather charming ad. Take a look.

I said on TV that the farmers in the 9th are going to have to decide if they want to vote for a Republican because they were Republicans all their lives or if they want vote for someone who will take care of THEIR interests. With tariffs looming from old Diaper Don, I can tell you Meuser will be right up the President’s butt on this one and not siding with the farmers.


I came across this letter in Penn Live the other day. It was written by a fellow from Dallas. Take a look:
Many of us are wondering, "Who should I vote for, Bob Casey or Lou Barletta?" Both want to represent Pennsylvania in the U.S. Senate.
It's an especially important race for both parties, because whoever has the majority will control what laws come up for a vote, whether or not Trump is impeached, whether we should tax imports and become isolated, etc.
Sen. Casey, the incumbent, has always fought for the working class.
If you go to Rep. Barletta's website, you'll see at the top, in large letters, "Stand with Pres. Trump, support Lou Barletta." This means Barletta supports: (1) separating children from their parents at the border, (2) paying millions for a wall, even though there are more efficient ways to secure our border, (3) white supremacists and Nazis, (4) tax scams that help the wealthy. and corporations at the expense of our deficit, but don't close loopholes, (5) filling the swamp with lobbyists and criminals, instead of draining it, (6) chaos at the White House and a weaker, less respected America, (7) criticizing our allies but showing admiration and respect for dictators like Putin and Kim Jung Un, (8) Putin instead of our intelligence agencies regarding Russia's interference in our election, (9) nepotism at the White House, (10) Trump's refusal to show his tax returns and his use of the office to increase his wealth, (11) Trump's continual lies and comments that are weakening faith in our democracy, like, "The press is the enemy of the people", (12) all types of conspiracy theories weaken faith in our democracy.
Bottom line, if we want to Make America Great Again, we should begin by voting for Senator Casey.

In a famous protest, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev removed his right shoe during a debate at the U.N. General Assembly, and pounded it on the table during a discussion of Soviet Union policy toward Eastern Europe. Khrushcev was angered by a remark by Philippine delegate Lorenzo Sumulong In a protest that would soon become famous, Baltimore housewife Mrs. Madalyn Murray withdrew her 14-year-old son, William J. Murray, from Woodbourne Junior High School rather than to continue participation in a daily Bible reading.[32] Since 1905, the city school district had required Bible reading or prayer to open each school day. Mrs. Murray, later Madalyn Murray O'Hair, founded the American Atheists and continued challenging the separation of church and state. William would convert to Christianity in 1980.
The Pittsburgh Pirates won the 1960 World Series in Game 7, on a home run hit by Bill Mazeroski for a 10–9 victory over the New York Yankees. It was the first time in the history of the Series that a homer had won the championship.

The third of the Kennedy-Nixon debates took place with the candidates separated by several thousand miles. Kennedy (in New York) and Nixon (in Los Angeles) were shown on television in a split screen. In order to avoid perspiring, Nixon arranged for air conditioning in the Hollywood studio.

Three black mice were launched in an American rocket to an altitude of 700 miles, and recovered alive when the nose cone was recovered, becoming the first living creatures to survive a trip of that distance into outer space… In a brief speech, made at 2:00 in the morning at the University of Michigan, U.S. presidential candidate John F. Kennedy first suggested the establishment of the Peace Corps. In a brief speech, made at 2:00 in the morning at the University of Michigan, U.S. presidential candidate John F.

The official motto of the line was "The Friendly Service Route".
Like many railroads in the northeast already financially vulnerable from the expanding U.S. Interstate Highway System, the line was severely weakened fiscally by the extent, duration and record flood levels due to Hurricane Agnes in 1972. It would never recover, and most of the corporation's holdings were subsumed into the federal rescue purchases creating Conrail in 1976, ending its days as an operating railroad company and fifty eight years ago the number one wong in LuLac land and America was “Devil Or Angel” b Bobby Vee.
