Evening Edition - November 26

November 26, 2019

This morning, as per tradition, President Trump was scheduled to pardon one (or both) of this year’s national Thanksgiving turkeys, named Bread and Butter.

Following the pardon, I predict that CNN will claim that Bread and Butter are connected to Vladimir Putin, Adam Schiff will launch secret investigative hearings, and Deep State operatives will insist that both turkeys should be eaten anyway in disregard of Trump’s pardoning of them. 

---------------------------

As more and more details and documents emerge relating to the investigation of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma and the famous American political names connected to it and profiting from it, it’s getting harder for the media to keep up its “Gaslight” routine and convince us that anyone who smells a rat is just a believer in wild, right-wing conspiracy theories.  They’d like us to believe that the real crime is thinking that there should be an investigation when the unqualified son of the US official overseeing Ukrainian foreign aid is given a do-nothing job that pays $50,000-$83,000 a month.  Well, no sale.

Monday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsay Graham said that at this point, it’s a matter of “duty” to investigate Ukrainian corruption that reaches into US government, including the Biden family, and since the House won’t do it, he will launch an investigation in the Senate.

Graham said, “I love Joe Biden as a person, he is a really decent man, he’s had a lot of tragedy in his life, but I have a conscience very clear right now. And I have a duty. If the House is going to shut it down, the Senate is going to pick it up.”  That would include asking Biden for transcripts of his phone calls with the former president of Ukraine. Graham said, “I’m not saying Joe did anything wrong, but I want to see the transcripts, and if there’s nothing there I’ll be the first one to say there’s nothing there.”

Conciliatory as that sounds, it drew an angry response from Biden, who accused Graham of being under President Trump’s thumb.  He told CNN, “Lindsey is about to go down in a way that I think he’s going to regret his whole life.”  That prompted Rudy Giuliani to tweet that it sounded like the threats he got when he started investigating the Mafia.

https://www.westernjournal.com/biden-says-graham-go-claims-regret-ukraine-investigation-whole-life/

I will just point out that when Democrats demanded to see a transcript of Trump’s phone call to the President of Ukraine, he released it.  Then he released the transcript of an earlier call.  Then they investigated him anyway. Now, they’re claiming that asking for a transcript of Biden’s phone calls to the President of Ukraine is some sort of unprecedented moral outrage?  Once again, their double standards are showing. 

 

 ------------------------------

 

I’ve already mentioned that Rep. Devin Nunes is threatening to sue CNN and the Daily Beast for running a story that alleges he secretly met in Vienna with Ukraine’s prosecutor last December to dig up dirt on Joe Biden and other Democrats.  Nunes called it a demonstrably false and scandalous story that was peddled to at least five different media outlets before they found two irresponsible enough to run it. 

But of course, that didn’t stop House Democrats from immediately leaping on it as a pretext to investigate Nunes, who’s been the raspberry seed in their wisdom tooth for a long time, most recently for dismantling their “Ukraine/impeachment” “witnesses.” 

https://www.westernjournal.com/top-democrat-adam-smith-reveals-devin-nunes-next-gop-target-investigation/

Now, if there were actual evidence of Nunes doing this, then I’d be the first to say it merits investigation.  But pardon me if I’m feeling a sense of déjà vu.  As the Church Lady would say, isn’t it conveeeeeeenient that every time Nunes starts to become a threat to the anti-Trump left, along comes some shadily-sourced accusation that somehow requires him to be sidelined?  Isn’t that exactly what happened when Nunes was starting to uncover the Deep State coup/“Russian collusion” hoax: he was suddenly accused of ethics violations that forced him off his committee for eight months before the allegations were dismissed?

Now, with remarkable synchronicity, both Nunes and Rudy Giuliani are accused of serious ethics violations requiring them to be sidelined and investigated, both in the same week and both as they're posing threats to the Democratic establishment.

Is it a startling coincidence or a recurring pattern of trying to derail the truth from being made public?  Margot Cleveland at the Federalist is also feeling some suspicious déjà vu and reminds us in detail of how the Democrats have distracted us down this blind alley before – and in Nunes’ case, using the exact same tactics against the exact same opponent.

 -------------------------------

 

First defection following the “impeachment” hearings: Michigan Rep. Brenda Lawrence, who supported the impeachment inquiry, now feels that a vote to “censure” President Trump would be sufficient.  I’m sure Trump will feel totally chastened by that and cry himself to sleep at night at the thought of being censured by this House. If the Democrats fall back on this and call it a victory, it will be like Barney Fife jumping out of the ring after 10 seconds with Mike Tyson and saying, "I think he's been punished enough!"

---------------------------------

 

Recently, several prominent Democrats (Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi, Cory Booker, etc.) have defended the House pushing impeachment while ignoring important issues by using the cliche that House Democrats “can walk and chew gun at the same time.”

At the link, Charlie Kirk goes looking for evidence of that claim, with little success.

Monday, President Trump welcomed Conan the dog to the White House.  Conan is the heroic military dog that chased down ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi before he killed himself with a suicide vest, killing his own children and injuring Conan.

And if you thought that the media could put aside their Trump Derangement Syndrome for five minutes to honor the dog, guess again.

https://spectator.us/trump-honors-hero-dog-conan/

Jim Treacher at PJ Media summed up the doggone insanity best.  Here’s a sample:

“Trump praised the hero dog who hunted down the terrorist, so that means dogs are bad now and terrorists are good. You can't like dogs anymore. In any dispute between a Trump dog and a terrorist, you have to root for the terrorist or else you love Trump. If you still like dogs after today, you have to wear a MAGA hat all the time. Sorry, those are the rules.”

    More about Romney is he at again talking like a traitor I spoke about him last week when I made reference to a back shooter; back shooters are considered to be a very low life person. During the 1800's cowards would shoot people in the back while hiding behind a bush or laying in shadows to rob one of his possessions. Bob Ford who shot Jesse James in the back in his own home while a guest in his house, was a back shooter This is what mitt Romney is a back shooter. Romney was voted in to help the GOP We all see how thats working ,a back shooting vulture.

    Two things:
    1) FINALLY - hearing that investigations will happen on SOMEONE...wasn't Hillary and a boatload of others - buuuut starting with BOTH Sr.&Jr. will suffice for now....but to KeepPromises - the continuation of Exposing and Draining the swamp of corruption, fraud and taxpayer money waste - must include MORE investigations, then ArrestAllAccomplices and the dominoes will call.
    We don't want to keep hearing the Dems&Lefties are breaking laws and talking without proceeding with charges, subpoenas, courts - they sure have President Trump and all is supporters!
    Action not yada yada!!!

    2) Folks need to chill on Woman's actions: A lot of folk are around some dogs, but due to allergies or other (like myself with some breeds), and that doesn't mean he doesn't like the dog. As for VP Pence, the affectionate way Conan was could've been some food or smell on his had - or the smell of an other pet on the VP's hand!

    Folk need to chill!
    ImpeachPelosiAndShiffAndTheFour!!!!!!!!!

    Since the Democrats, during Obama's term from 2009-2017, have been so protected from any criticism or exposure of their corrupt acts, we are now witnessing the consequences of such protection, or willful blindness -- the Democrats are no longer able to distinguish right from wrong. This is best exemplified by Joe Biden's transparent behavior that is oblivious to any sense of his and his son's obvious corruption. After all, they continue to have protection from our pathetic journalists and media.

    Gov. agree on Chick and their new concept of charity and not anymore to the Salvation Army one of my favorites for many years such a caring people who many times are the first to arrive after the big storms to help so many. Why now is ones sexual preference a reason to not give to their charity? Why do we all have to agree and yet still be able to accept also? I have given to Chick for a long time per how they take off on Sunday and if they did not like marriage of gays their choice and many others believe this also. Now I may just have to go to Popeyes for my chicken sandwich ?

    I so look forward to your daily messages. Good for Rep Nunes on fighting back. I also find it curious how every time any of the Republicans come up with some push back to anything the demonrats want to keep a secret, a conflict of interest or ethics violations suddenly show up. This crap has got to stop. I can only hope that my 74 yr old self is still able to fend off the advancing hords when the next civil war begins.

    Let's see a replay of obama's infamous "Elections have consequences" quote and how about replaying the dems grilling 2016 candidate Trump about how he'll act when he (Ha-Ha-Ha) loses NOT the election! Feckless crybaby hypocrites!!!

    First things 1st the Left can not chew gum for starters the Left has to do something first to say they can chew gum and get something done that makes our country stronger. Failed. With one arm tied to his leg President Trump has done so much positive activity in 3 years than the Left has done in the past 11 years. Most of us know the story, its is trickling down to the older Lefties the Children still believe in FREE everything just like the youngsters want every toy on the shelf they grow up and figure it out the big problem today is it now takes a child to get to its 32nd birthday to figure out a little thing called money it allows you to legally buy things of value. Bernie, Lizzy keep talking you will have the kids attention until they are 32.

    Lindsey Graham doesn't think Biden did anything wrong? I've seen the video of him bragging about withholding American money from the Ukraine if they don't fire that prosecutor~ so what
    is Graham talking about? Biden shouldn't have bragged about his "quid quo pro".

    Not related to anything here but please tell Sarah to run for Governor. You & your wife raised a smart & sassy woman who'll make a fantastic Governor of Arkansas. I only wish I could vote for her but I live in Pennsylvania.
