At the link, Tucker Carlson laughs at the idea of being lectured for hours about the perils of cheating by Adam Schiff. It’s like Lady Gaga lecturing on how unseemly it is to call attention to yourself.

By the way, speaking of famous liberals giving hypocritical lectures to the rest of us, do you think anyone at the upcoming Grammy Awards will dare to make one of those haughty, self-righteous speeches about Trump voters’ alleged racism and sexism, in light of this news?

Since the Democrats keep bringing up that the “nonpartisan” Government Accountability Office claims that Trump’s delay of aid to Ukraine was illegal, here are some reminders of how nonpartisan the GAO is…

…and seven times that the GAO claimed some action of Obama’s was illegal, but nobody in Washington cared.

Your Thursday Helping of Fake News: And is anyone surprised that it comes to us courtesy of CNN?

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

Say, remember when Nancy Pelosi sailed past thousands of angry protesters, blithely waving her gavel, to go into a locked legislative chamber and shove Obamacare down the people’s throats against their will? Oblivious arrogance hasn't been a good look for politicians since Marie Antoinette, and it worked out well both for her and for the Democrats, didn’t it? In the next election, the Dems lost a staggering 63 seats and their majority, and Nancy lost her widdle gavel and her position as Speaker. (In other words, both Marie and the Dems lost their heads.)

Let’s hope that history repeats itself not only on the national level in November, but specifically in Virginia, where the high-handed Democrats are abusing their thin majority to try to shove their radical anti-gun, pro-abortion agenda down the throats of an ever-more-enraged public, blithely ignoring the giant angry mob outside, all the counties voting themselves to be Second Amendment sanctuaries, and the sheriffs declaring that they won’t enforce the new laws that the Dems are preparing to pass. All I can say is, “Yeah, you go ahead and pass those laws! After all, what can all those angry voters do to you? They’re just bluffing!”

Rep. and Democratic Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard has filed a defamation lawsuit against Hillary Clinton. Gabbard claims that Hillary harmed her campaign and American democracy by “publicly, unambiguously, and with obvious malicious intent” asserting that she’s being groomed by the Russians to launch a third-party campaign and help reelect President Trump. Her campaign sent Clinton a letter threatening a lawsuit and demanding an apology and retraction, which Hillary ignored. Gabbard is now seeking damages and an injunction to prevent the media from continuing to repeat Clinton’s false accusation.

https://www.westernjournal.com/tulsi-gabbard-announces-lawsuit-hillary-clinton-maliciously-made-false-statements/

Gabbard’s lawsuit says she is running for the Presidency, “a position Clinton has long coveted, but has not been able to attain,” and her lawsuit “seeks to hold Clinton, and the political elites who enable her, accountable for distorting the truth…” Clinton’s spokesman responded that the lawsuit is “ridiculous.”

He’s right: I can think of nothing more ridiculous than trying to hold Hillary Clinton and her enablers accountable for anything.

Democratic pollster Mark Penn has some advice for his fellow Democrats about this impeachment debacle that they would be wise to heed. But if they were wise, they wouldn’t have launched this in the first place, so they probably won’t heed it.

The US Department of Transportation has proposed a new rule that would allow airlines to ban “emotional support animals” other than professionally-trained service dogs.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-proposes-tighter-rules-for-emotional-support-animals-on-flights-11579720969

But how do they expect me to do all the flying I have to do without Cuddles, my emotional support octopus?!

Fortunately, as long as airlines have a bar cart, this Brooklyn man will never have to give up his emotional support animal.

    Wish good things for Tucker. I believe he is a good worker and that we need more people like him.

    Thank you for what you do, and a place to vent our frustrations! I'm embarassed that America has Democrats so full of hate that they constantly attack our President and his family, and have attempted to impeach from the beginning of his administration. Regardless of Pelosi saying she doesn't hate anybody, and she's Catholic, what I see from her and other Democrats sure isn't love. And what they've put this Country through along with the cost, and lies, I don't see how they sleep at night. I'm amazed there aren't leaders that step in and stop all this nonsense and tell them they aren't going to do this to the President, and the Country, and what they are trying to impeach him for is ridiculous, and sure isn't impeachable. And I hope Pelosi, Nadler, and Schiff, along with the media will be held responsible. I'm ashamed to see our Country come to this. It's embarrassing, and there seems to be no shame in peoples actions. Sadly, I don't know why President Trump wants to endure another term. They won't stop even if he's cleared of this impeachment. They'll have him and family under a microscope and continue to lie, or have someone else to do it. Hopefully John Durham will expose what's been going on, and the ones responsible will have to go to jail for what they've done.

    As far as the impeachment circus goes, I think the RINOS are going to help the OPPOSITION PARTY with this charade of indecency. Right now there are 45 solid acquittal votes. The republicans have always been their own worst enemy. Looser Romney will lead the resistance against President Trump. As far the election in November, I doubt much will change. I hope it does but these well entrenched swamp creatures have a pretty good survivability rate. Like I have said for years, we do not have a constitutional republic any more, we have a political monarchy

    I can't believe what I read, about 'emotional support animals on a plane?' If an emotional support animal is needed on the plane for a person, then that person SHOULDN'T be flying on a plane in the first place, should they? There are trains and buses and RV's and automobiles and trucks that the person and their support animal, should take instead of an airplane flight. What is wrong with these people? Common sense is decreasing more and more, and the 'European Union, i.e. British socialism,' is taking over American culture more and more lately. My suggestion, if these liberals love socialism so much, than they should move to Europe and stay there. Oh, that's right, Europe has cracked down on immigrants more so than the U.S. ever has or will.

    Whatever did republican John Kennedy, LA, mean when he said: News of the evidence is being heard for the first time by some senators. WHAT EVIDENCE! Governor, do you know what evidence Kennedy was talking about? There is no evidence against President Trump. There are only the democrats' lies, lies, and more lies and the democrats' opinions to shape impeachment as they wish it to fool the American people. Kennedy should tell the American people what evidence against the President he is speaking about. Sign me "Mad as Heck at John Kennedy from LA".

    Does Schiff and Nadler have a certificate to predict the future? Are these two nitwits the guys that got freed from Zotars box? I think the two of them are enjoying themselves laughing at the Jury,Senators, normal Americans, predicting the Senate are in cover up mode and President Trump will cheat to win another election, the two have someone think of outrageous accusations that taunt normal Americans just to keep their base of nit wit followers tuned in. With Free Healthcare, Education, undocumented Immigration, higher taxes, more and easier abortion, to let let violent people have guns while law abiding citizens have none, PC speech, unlimited drug use, do not favor free trade all this dancing in their heads while smoking dope sticking needles in their arms pooping and peeing in the streets Schiff Nadler need to keep these people on their side thats what they are fighting for total destruction of the United States you see it every day so NY and California reelect these nitwits and enjoy your schitty and Nadler world.

    Dear Governor,
    An "emotional support octypus?" ??
    But...seriously...so many people sadly regard "human life" as less than or equal to "animal life" ....however.....
    Am now wondering....could I bring another HUMAN with me for FREE? on an airline flight as MY "emotional support 'animal'"?

    After listening to Adam Schiff's closing "sermon" last night, I knew exactly what I was going to write this morning, regardless of whether or not it related specifically to the message in your last night's newsletter....AND....I COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT YOUR OPENING STATEMENT: "Tucker Carlson laughs at the idea of being lectured for hours about the perils of cheating by Adam Schiff" WAS THE PERFECT INTRODUCTION STATEMENT TO WHAT I WAS PLANNING ON WRITING IN MY COMMENT....EXCEPT, THAT IS, FOR THE FOLLOWING WORD CHANGERS:

    "I laughed at the idea of being lectured about the importance of RIGHT and TRUTH if one doesn't want to be LOST" ....and......Your words "hypocritical lectures", in the second sentence of this newsletter, are also most appropriate for defining Schiff's closing statements...although I would like to add that his giving a lecture (sermon) about what is RIGHT....TRUTH....and what it means to BE LOST...
    is the HEIGHT of hypocrisy....from GOD'S perspective....and medium of measurement!

    Because Jesus said......FROM God's perspective....that no man IS "good", it follows then that no man does "right" .....Because Jesus said that He IS truth, it follows then that He SPEAKS truth....therefore, anyone who supports same sex marriage, and says that homosexuality is NOT a sin is calling Jesus a liar and, therefore, there is no truth IN him! And it is WHEN there is no truth IN him....because He who IS truth is not IN him...THAT one is LOST.. not "saved" !!!

    HERE IS YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF WHY IT IS TIME FOR CHRISTIANS TO STEP UP TO THE PLATE BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN GIVE THIS KIND OF COUNTER ARGUMENT TO AN ADAM SCHIFF and his team mates!

    AND....in your FORWARD to Stephen Strang's book, you stated, "President Trump has surrounded himself with a number of evangelical Christians, starting with Mike Pence, and genuinely DESIRES THEIR COUNSEL".....You then went on to say that HE TRULY understands AND WELCOMES, GODLY ADVICE!" In response I say...

    Yes, some of the evangelical Christians...LIKE Mike Pence...I'm sure DID give him "godly advice", but I'm equally sure other evangelical Christians did NOT...and I know of what I speak....and I have proof of what I speak! When God used me to expose a nationally -known evangelist who was sexually molesting kids, this said evangelist said to me, "you go where angels fear to tread"....and my role in this tragic story moved David Wilkerson to call me personally!

    I have a "story" with MANY well-known Christian evangelists and I have felt that, one day, God might call me to TELL it....and it is against the backdrop of this story that I can state with Holy Ghost authority that there was a "crime" committed against Mark Harris...and it is also against the backdrop of this story that I can state with equal Holy Ghost authority that Christianity Today's indictment against Christians for not wanting to impeach President Trump is also the height of hypocrisy!!!!!

    NOW WHAT HAS MOVED ME TO TELL YOU THIS IS BECAUSE it is the REASON that I broke out in hysterical laughter (that lasted for minutes) when I read your statement: "But how do they expect me to do all the flying I have to do without Cuddles, my emotional octopus?" .....NOW I WILL EXPLAIN...

    While I DO go where angels fear to tread (because "man" does not intimidate me)
    ....and have been used of God to be His mouthpiece TO celebrity Christians....(which David Wilkerson told me was a prophetic call on my life) my TRUE identity has always been "just" "child of God" and, if asked WHY God WOULD use a no name like me...TO confront name people....my answer is that it is because it is TRUE that He uses "the foolish things of the world to confound the wise" as proven by the fact that I travel....when I drive....with this gigantic teddy bear in the driver's seat....AND...I have used this teddy bear to talk to gang kids after they saw ME talk to the teddy bear....have her answer me....and my give her a big hug ....and these kids loved it!!!!.....I HAVE OFTEN SAID THAT A GOOD PICTURE OF ME IS:

    GOING UP TO A SUPERSTAR EVANGELIST....presenting him with a message in a "thus saith the Lord" kind of spiritual AUTHORITY with a teddy bear under my arm! THAT is the image that made your statement so hilariously funny to me and I think I have taken the time to explain this TO you because I so needed TO laugh like this and wanted you to know why I have such a heartfelt thank you FOR giving me that which I HAD such a need for! Oh, I might also mention that, sitting on my table....where I write....I have a small teddy bear that is hugging a wooden cross I bought when I was in Israel....and, periodically, I pick her up, hug her, and then smother her with kisses! I don't know if that offers me "emotional SUPPORT" "for all the writing I do"....but it sure offers me "emotional RELEASE"!

    Gov Huckabee, As a blind person with a trained guide dog, the TSA decision is very welcomed. Now for the GAO comment; they are so so wrong! I worked in the field of Foreign Military Sales (FMS) for over 27 1/2 years, and delaying release of FMS support is lawful if State and/or the President deem necessary; and occurred several times during my service. It is lawful under the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) and the International Trade in Arms Regulation (ITAR).

    I'm not a fan of IPA, preferring a dark porter (certainly over an octopus as an airline therapy sedative), but me thinks America would be a lot less tightly wound if we would all enjoy an adult beverage (sorry Baptists) and just chill from all this political madness. After all, Jesus did change water to wine as His first miracle. maybe He was on to something......in moderation.

    The impoundment control act deals with rescisions NOT delays. The GAO is completely wrong. The president did nott rescind or withhold funds he only delayed disbursement.

    Because of the Democrat's focus on impeachment the House has passed no legislation dealing with issues they campaigned to solve. No health care fix. No immigration fix for DACA. No infrastructure for jobs. No tax breaks for middle class.
    House democrats have only passed 8 resolutions through the Senate to the president. Why are they worthy of our votes?

    Virginia Democrats are not only trying to take away our 2nd Amendment gun rights, they are now going after our 1st Amendment rights to free speech. "Virginia Democrats Push Legislation to Make Criticism of Government Officials a Criminal Offense"House Bill 1627 was introduced by Delegate Jeffrey M. Bourne last week. The legislation “provides that certain crimes relating to threats and harassment may be prosecuted in the City of Richmond if the victim is the Governor, Governor-elect, Lieutenant Governor, Lieutenant Governor-elect, Attorney General, or Attorney General-elect, a member or employee of the General Assembly, a justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, or a judge of the Court of Appeals of Virginia.” So, say all the nasty, untruthful things you want against President Trump but don't you dare criticize our Democrat black-face Governor!

    In spite of the three year "government shutdown" President Trump and the working members of Congress have managed to accomplish a great deal. To be truthful, there are some things I don't agree with, or don't agree with entirely, but still, it is an impressive list. But, just think how much even better off we would all be today if the obstructionists were actually working, too!!! And, from remarks here and there, there are those who just want to point out what the President HASN'T accomplished--of course, making him a liar that he didn't do EVERYTHING. In spite of his doing more in 3 years while being hog-tied than all the recent Presidents did combined over the years. What they are wanting is for something major--like the wall--to not be built (sorry, maybe not to the extent we need, but it's a fantastic start!!) and that these things will make people not want to vote for the President this Nov.

    I started to read comments about whether or not folks are watching the sham hearings, but the numbe 2,200+ was too overwhelming!!! What I did get was--mostly nope-not watching. Or, a few, bits and pieces. And, those that are waiting for the defense team to present--THEN they will start watching. I'm not going to watch on the msm channels--don't want to add to any ratings they might pick up.
