Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are glad to see Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo win the vote in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, thanks to a change of heart by Rand Paul and Democrat Chris Coons bailing out the poor leadership of Chairman Bob Corker. They also recoil at the Toronto attack carried out by a van driver, who sped a mile down city sidewalks, killing 10 and injuring 15. They marvel at how easily the media moved on to different stories since the weapon wasn’t a gun and there’s no immediate link to jihad. And they rail against the British government for trying to stop the parents of Alfie Evans from seeking additional opportunities to save their son’s life, a truly frightening result of government expansion.

    The mayor of Toronto said people should pray for the victims and their families. No blowback from those who were upset about calls for prayer after Parkland.

    Because it’s Canadians? Or because it was a truck not a gun? Some other reason?

    Liberals are allowed to say things that others are not – in order to appear ‘normal’ and acceptable to the larger electorate of normal people (aka Lie) for political purposes. The base knows when a liberals issues a call to prayer its disingenuous.

    Also the main stream media, is going to pay near-zero attention to any story that occurs outside the lower 48 states.
