Missouri Teen Reminds Us About the Value of Compassion

Bravo, young man. Bravo.

The world is full of dark and terrifying reminders about just how perilous our existence truly is.

With the threat of war, terrorism, and political upheaval dominating the news cycle as of late it can be easy for the human race to get a little down on ourselves from time to time.  The dark and scary parts of the world tend to overwhelm the media, thanks to their addiction to conflict, putting an emphasis on the stories that make us feel good.

Of particular concern is the behavior of the American youth, who at times appear to be fully bereft with angst and venom.

But one Missouri teenager has restored our faith in humanity…at least for a few days.

“Everyone kept telling me the storm is coming and you need to hurry up and get home,” Gregory Beck told KMOV4. Getting home, however, is not so easy for Beck, who lost both his legs last year and is legally blind due to diabetes.

As Beck was attempting to cross a busy street to get to a nearby gas station, multiple drivers were honking and yelling at him — however, to one teen’s surprise, no one was helping.

Seth Phillips, 16, spotted Beck and immediately asked his mother if they could stop to help.

This is where things took a turn for the best.

“This lady and her son were hollering at me like, ‘Are you okay?” Beck told the news outlet. “Very lovely lady driving and her son. Just the greatest people and very concerned about other people, which America needs to start doing more of.”

Seth pushed Beck in his wheelchair up a hill to his home — a hill that Beck says takes him 25 minutes to traverse. He has to stop up tp 10 times to rest before he makes it to his door.

We can only hope that the example set by young Seth Phillips will resonate with other American teens.

Save conservative media!

Ocasio-Cortez Says Democrat Party Is A ‘Center-Conservative Party’ — Not A ‘Left Party’

Yes, she actually said these words…

Of all the absolutely ridiculous thoughts that come from the lips of freshman Democrat Socialist lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), this sentence might just take the cake. Actually, it might just take the entire bakery. It’s as if AOC literally said the sun is the moon and the moon doesn’t exist. It is that stunning and blatantly ignorant. You know, it’s almost as if AOC legitimately has no clue about what she speaks. I wonder how liberals will feel about this. See for yourself, via Washington Examiner: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the Democratic Party leans to the right of the political center. She said, “We don’t have a left party in the United States. The Democratic Party is not a left party. The Democratic Party is a center or center-conservative party.” AOC added, “We can’t even get a floor vote on Medicare for All, not even a floor vote that gets voted down. So, this is not a left party. There are a lot of true believers that we can ‘capitalism’ our way out of poverty in the Democratic Party. If anything, that’s probably the majority.” Reactions: https://twitter.com/bpjauburn/status/1219422563883016198?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219422563883016198&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/ericsaid691/status/1219420015402856448?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219420015402856448&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/thecheesefeed/status/1219397437837545473?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219397437837545473&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/kalel1324/status/1219376539583774723?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219376539583774723&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/MrSagacious/status/1219432046021500929?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219432046021500929&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/NickKnox8/status/1219385743623249920?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219385743623249920&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/mckenney1971/status/1219430553113501696?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219430553113501696&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F President Ocasio-Cortez, anyone? Apparently, the far-left radical thinks about the idea. Could there be anything scarier for America? During a podcast interview, AOC admitted she thinks about running for POTUS “every once in a while.” AOC spoke with Yahoo! News’ Skullduggery podcast Sunday about a variety of issues, and the conversation eventually turned to her thoughts on the 2020 election and her own sights for higher office. AOC: “I don’t know, I really don’t know,” the freshman congresswoman said of her next steps in politics. “I think about it every once in a while but […] this is pretty hard already.” LISTEN: https://twitter.com/SkullduggeryPod/status/1117777587110129671?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1117777587110129671&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.theamericanmirror.com%2Focasio-cortez-every-once-in-a-while-thinks-about-running-for-president-says-biden-doesnt-particularly-animate-her%2F H/T: Twitchy

Jim Jordan & 7 Other House Conservatives Named to Trump’s Impeachment Team [Details]

How will Dems respond to this?

John Salvatore

Reps. Jim Jordan (OH) and Lee Zeldin (NY) are two of the seven House Republicans appointed to President Trump’s impeachment team. Who are the other five? Let’s get into it, via The Hill: The White House announced Monday that President Trump appointed several prominent Republican House members to advise his impeachment defense team ahead of the Senate trial set to begin this week. GOP Reps. Jim Jordan (Ohio), John Ratcliffe Texas), Mike Johnson (La.), Mark Meadows (N.C.), Debbie Lesko (Ariz.), Lee Zeldin (N.Y.), Elise Stefanik (N.Y.) and Doug Collins are set to play leading roles. Continued: A statement from the White House said the lawmakers “have provided guidance to the White House team, which was prohibited from participating in the proceedings concocted by Democrats in the House of Representatives” throughout the House proceedings and would continue to do so in the Senate. At this rate, no matter how hard the left tries, it would appear Trump has 2020 all but in the bag. Great for America, bad for the left. But what’s bad in the eyes of the left is usually good for the left – they just can’t see it. Liberals. SMH. BREAKING: New leaked video from inside CNN: President Jeff Zucker tells employees to push “impeachment” and that all of CNN’s stories should be about “moves towards impeachment” One of CNN’s employees says Zucker has a “personal vendetta against Trump” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1183780647522856960?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1183780647522856960&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F435181-project-veritas-video-cnns-jeff-zucker-directing-employees-to-push-impeachment%2F WATCH: Democrat Rep. Al Green says the impeachment of @realDonaldTrump is needed “to deal with slavery.” MSNBC’s Alex Witt “mmhhhmms” throughout the clip in agreement. https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1203420159639277573?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203420159639277573&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fdemocrat-congressman-al-green-trump-must-be-impeached-to-deal-with-slavery Let them keep thinking Trump should be impeached. Let’s see how that plays out for them. As we’ve seen so far, it’s not going well. In fact, it’s going very poorly.
