Current Events Write-Up: Economy on Paper, Abortion and Ireland, Jerry Brown

Time for this week’s Current Events Write-Up.

Global Research: “Trump at the UN: Lies, Damn Lies, & Statistics,” by Dr. Jack Rasmus.

Essentially, the article argues that what President Trump said about the economy is not so.  What is on paper and what is on the ground are not the same thing.  The same thing can probably be said for many leaders who brag about their economic records, not just Trump.

The Federalist: “The Irish Mother Emma Thompson Wrote To Didn’t Die Because Abortion Was Illegal,” by Nicole Russell.

An nuanced look at that case, as well as an interesting look at abortion law and politics in Ireland.

Townhall: “Governor Moonbeam: Making California Great Again?”, by Arthur Schaper.

A conservative finds things to praise about Governor Jerry Brown of California.
