Evening Edition - November 5

November 5, 2019 |

 I’ve gotten so used to liberal federal judges rubber-stamping blatant cases of lawfare against President Trump that I hardly find it worth it anymore to comment on them until they reach the Supreme Court level. But just for the record, here’s another example of liberal prosecutors trying to abuse their power to personally target Trump, a federal court saying, “Fine by us!” and the question now having to go to the SCOTUS to be settled for real,


Just out of curiosity: if these people are so convinced that Trump is hiding multiple felonies, why do they think he’d list them on his tax forms – which I’m sure are prepared by battalions of attorneys and accountants and signed by his robo-pen and Trump probably never even reads them (do you read all your tax forms, and yours are probably nothing compared to his)?  And if all these illegalities are right there in plain sight on his tax forms for the IRS to see, how come nobody was ever interested in prosecuting him for them until he became a Republican President?

I suspect that just as with impeachment, “Russian collusion” and the entire ball of Trump accusations, the real crime he committed was beating Hillary in 2016.


Breaking News: Some video of testimony by one of President Trump’s accusers has just been leaked! Watch it and see the latest accusation of an impeachable offense that could finally bring down Trump for real this time!




I’ve written before about how liberals like to give innocuous-sounding names to bills that actually do the opposite of what it sounds like they’d do (“Affordable Care Act,” etc.) There have been many of these on the state level in California, which explains why that state is in the pickle it’s in now. One of the most recent misnamed measures reclassified thefts of less than $950 by people without prior convictions for certain crimes such as rape or murder from felonies to misdemeanors. It was sold to voters on the promise it would help reduce crime and make people safer by allowing police and prosecutors to concentrate on really serious crimes. Bamboozled voters passed it as Proposition 47: “The Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act.”

It’s the exact opposite of the “enforce all laws” approach Rudy Giuliani took that turned around New York City, and of course, it’s having the opposite effect of Rudy’s program. Whoever would have imagined that not enforcing laws would lead to more of them being broken? It "reduced crime" all right -- by basically legalizing crimes. Predictably (well, if you aren’t a liberal California politician), it’s sparked an epidemic of shoplifting and smash-and-grab robberies by crooks who know police won’t bother to chase nor prosecutors bother to prosecute anyone who steals less than $950 worth of anything (at any one time.)


Similarly, in September, California legislators passed Assembly Bill 5 on Worker Status, which would mandate various 20th century employee-style treatments and benefits be applied to people who work as independent contractors. Just as he has with practically every other bill that was so crazy even Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown said “you’ve got to be kidding,” current Gov. Gavin Newsom signed it, and it will likely be on the 2020 ballot. Uber, Lyft, Dealdash and other major tech companies are fighting it; they say it will destroy the growing gig economy. Critics say it will also adversely affect all sorts of independent contractors, from truckers to franchise owners; take away people’s freedom to set their own work hours; deprive customers of many convenient services such as Uber that they've come to rely on; and reverse our current booming economy if it spreads nationwide by killing millions of independent contractor jobs.

And what are its supporters calling it? Brace yourself: “The Opportunity to Work Act.”


Do you know a set of laws that are already on the books that, if we ever started really enforcing them, would destroy leftist politicians overnight? “Truth in Advertising Laws.”’




Barack Obama isn’t President of the United States anymore, but his wife Michelle said, “Barack’s presidential library could have been anywhere in the world because there are so many people who feel like he is their President all over the world.”


I’m sure that’s true. I’m also sure there are many more people all over the world who wish he were still our President because that was much better for them than it was for the United States. And I’m pretty sure that’s a big part of the reason why Donald Trump is our President now.



Follow-up to previous story: Yesterday, I wrote about gun control activists threatening a boycott of Jersey Mike’s subway shops for allowing open carry of weapons by customers. This blew up after a photo went viral showing a customer with a pistol apparently tucked into the back of his droopy jeans, fully exposed by his too-short T-shirt.


I heard from a friend who pointed out that he actually did have the pistol in a particular type of holster meant for tucking inside the belt, so it wasn’t improper carrying of the pistol. It’s just that to see the holster, you had to blow up the picture really large and focus closely on the buttockal area, which I assume most of us would not want to do. So I stand corrected that he did have the pistol in a holster. However, those holsters are usually meant to be covered by a shirt tail, which the customer’s was not. So he might not have been violating any weapons carry laws, but he was definitely violating the laws of good taste. I’m not bothered by people who legally carry weapons, but when I’m in Jersey Mike’s, the only buns I want to see are the ones on the sandwiches.



Bernie Sanders actually claimed that his socialist ideas aren’t far-left, “they are the ideas that the American people want.”


It’s a sad testimony to the politicized and poor quality education in history, civics and economics that many American students receive these days that he’s partially right: a shocking number of Americans actually do want his insane, destructive, proven failure ideas. At one time, the Venezuelan, Cuban, Russian and other peoples wanted them, too.

So, how did that work out?...Like, everywhere they’ve been tried?

Incidentally, in answer to the kneejerk responses from the left that I’m sure to receive, about how “Democratic socialism” is totally different from your garden variety, deadly, oppressive socialism, take a look at what two of its prime exponents are saying in front of friendly crowds and tell me how this is any different from the kind of stuff Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev used to say while banging his shoe on the podium.

    Concerning Sanders, Warren, and Socialism, it appears the current polls show many people favor socialism as well as these Democrats who preach it. Are the polls accurate by any true measure whatsoever? Who is conducting all of these polls showing so much socialist favoritism? Are many of them left leaning? What are true American patriots and Constitution-loving people really facing next November at the REAL polls? I would like to hear the truth about this to the extent that you know, Governor.

    One way to help end the desire for socialism is to teach the truth about the history of our country’s founding, what was the country like that our founders left, and why they left it. It would also be good to teach the history of our founding fathers in the writing of the Declaration of Independent and the Constitution.

    What makes the House Of Represenatives on the Left different from the Cartels of Mexico they are organized, they operate in secrecy, the most urgent care is power and money, they both murder family members one by Abortion the other with fire, knives, guns Both use knives, corruption is huge in both organizations lets face the facts both organizations are savage in their operations all they care about is one, staying in power two, staying in power here is the difference extortion of taxpayers money by the House they do nothing and the Cartels sell drugs, Human trafficking and the House makes it legal by not enforcing the laws or making new laws to stop it. Two of a kind working together. Dispute this please I think its true.

    Don't forget how socialism destroyed Detroit, and it's starting to destroy New York and California. Suppose we could add the violent areas of Chicago to that as well.

    Socialism violates the morality of the 10 Commandments: Thou shall not covet (9,10) and Thou shalt have no other gods before me (2), namely a government that can steal what is being coveted. So socialism fails first and primarily on moral grounds.

    Just like pelosi doesn't speak for me (and I'm pretty sure a large number of people) neither does ilhan. The really sad thing is--if any of the looney left become President, what country would I move to?? Too many are on the socialism spectrum--which, of course, is what soros and obama and many others have been working for--global misery for all but the extreme elite.

    Great content in your newsletter, Gov. I think that with all of the Obama holdovers in the deep state government, including the IRS, that if President Trump had tried to hide anything illegal financially, it would have been leaked out long ago. The Dems probably know that as well and this is the reason why Shifty Schiff isn't really pushing that hard on getting Trump's tax returns.
    Keep up the great work and I love your show on TBN!

    Our country has many nitwitted people that look for attention and trouble the guide lines for conceal and carry have to be carried out. So correct about Obama and sleeping with the world if your so well like by other countries that really are envious and behind closed doors do not like us because we are # 1 is either corrupt, selling out the country, or is trying to destroy our country Obama fits all three. Mexican Cartels if guilty of killing law abiding citizens need to be treated as a terrorist group and Dear Mexico if you want to be a Middle East type country housing terror groups killing our citizens you have 2 weeks to clean it up not 2 weeks for them to get away but to control them and bring to Justice or we declare war on them we can find them whether U want us to or not. Mexico your over your head on this U need help. Your people are scared to death of the cartels you need the US Marines your defense against Peasants may be good enough but you are overmatched against the Cartels. You have to many left like congress people in your military cowards and corrupt. No control of this problem for 30 years at least.

    Approve you can take under $900 and not be arrested what does this do to ma and pa stores the cannot survive can yu imagine how many go in and just take whatever. Calif is a land of soup and nuts anymore. Why this President has won. The rest of the country is not like the phonies and fakes . The real people who won. Sad for Sen Bernie that he has Omar and Cortez backing him who cares about the one woman who lost Amazon thousands of jobs and millions of dollars WHY? The other who cannot stand Christians or Jews. This is not who he use to be to accept their backing WHY?

    A colleague of mine who lives in Gilroy confirmed the obvious idiocy of the $950 - who cares law in CA - which he calls Calizuela. He says bums et al go into a store, fill the carts with whatever, and just push them out. Newsome is totally mindless ! CA is ripe for a Republican recolonization ;-}

    You are right many CPAs and Attorneys looked at Trumps Taxes before they were filed and then he had one line to sign which he did probably only reading what his income was. If those forms were printed out on letter size paper and stacked they would be many feet high. The people dying to see his return are only capable of understand and maybe finding his income and tax paid lines on his 1040.

    Isn't the IRS auditing President Trump's taxes? Do the dems really think they can find something the IRS hasn't been able to find after years of combing through his tax records? Oh. Of COURSE they do.??

    Socialism discourages capitalism and takes care of the poor and the lazy useless people of society at the expense of the workers and productive individuals and businesses. It assumes there is an unlimited pot of money and “disadvantaged” people are “entitled” to line up for handouts. It is a load of crap!! In early Jamestown the rule was that if you didn’t work you didn’t eat. Sounds good.
