In other news, the Israel government says Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) will not be allowed to enter the country on a planned tour. Trump told Israel not to let them in this morning.

Meanwhile, the value of 30-year treasury bonds fell to an all-time record low today as investors ran away from short-term bonds after yesterday's inversion.

Finally, The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) says July 2019 was hottest month on Earth since modern record keeping began in the 1880s.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Thursday that July was the hottest month on record, with global temperatures averaging 62.13 degrees, which is 1.71 degrees above the 20th century average.

This July bested July 2016 for the hottest month on record by .05 degrees. Records date to 1880.

The areas that had the most notable departures from their normal July temperatures were Alaska, central Europe, northern and southwestern parts of Asia, and parts of Africa and Australia. [...]

Nine of the 10 hottest Julys have occurred since 2005, and the last five have been the hottest Julys ever.

Everything is fine.

    Palestinians and Palestinian Americans are not “terrorists” simply by virtue of being Palestinian. There is no basis, either in diplomacy or law or human relations for Israel to treat duely elected representatives of an ally as steadfast as the United States has been to Israel in the manner in which they are treating Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlalib. If they are concerned about anti semitism they might want to consider what the Unite the Right rally of “very fine people” ( see trump’s description of them) were chanting at Charlottesville. “Jews will not replace us.” While carrying torches and AR-15s.

    Donald Trumps rhetoric has motivated several terrorist attacks, even across the globe, since he won* the election and he is completely unapologetic despite the lives taken and destroyed. But two congresswomen are harsh critics of Israel and this is how they’re treated. Disgusting.

    The next time a Democrat is in the White House, if he’s still in power Netanyahu should be treated as a pariah.
