Evening Edition - July 18

Less than 5 minute read

July 18, 2019

For all the thundering about impeaching President Trump (which I’ll remind you started about five minutes after CNN admitted he’d won the election), once again Wednesday, the House voted 332-95 to table the latest impeachment resolution from rabid anti-Trump Texas Rep. Al Green.  Since the number of Democrats willing to go on record as supporting it has risen from 66 a year-and-a-half ago to 95 now, Green says it’s only a matter of time before it passes.  Yep, at this rate, I figure it will pass just about the time Trump is wrapping up his second term.

The problem, aside from voters who like having a booming economy and record low unemployment no matter much it rankles House Democrats and who don’t want Trump impeached, is that pesky matter of “grounds.”  They keep thundering about all the “high crimes and misdemeanors” Trump has committed, but when pressed to name one, the Dems go into their best Jackie Gleason impression: “Homina-homina-homina…”

Russian collusion?  Thoroughly investigated by three government entities, and no evidence was found of any.  Obstruction?  The Mueller probe went on for two years and cost $30 million; if he wanted to obstruct it, he did a lousy job of it. Financial corruption?  Trump walked away from a multibillion-dollar business and is donating his salary back to the government. The Mueller probe guilty pleas?  All process "crimes" and unrelated issues from years before the targets' brief involvement with Trump.  He was just accused of having the most corrupt Administration in history by a freshman Congresswoman who is herself under scrutiny for everything from alleged bigamy to tax irregularities to anti-Semitism, yet she failed to name a single example of his so-called “corruption.” 

Green offered a clue by saying, "The president has committed an impeachable offense. Yesterday, we condemned him for that. Today is our opportunity to punish him."  And what did they condemn him for?  Writing some tweets they didn’t like.  I need an expert legal opinion: Is offensive tweeting a high crime or a misdemeanor? 

Can you imagine Hillary having to go through the intense and relentless levels of hostile investigation and prosecution Trump and his people have endured?  She would've been sentenced to spend more time in prison that the cornerstone of the Bastille.

When you press them very hard, you learn that their grounds for impeaching Trump are that they really, really, really don’t like that guy, and they are still really, really, really, really angry that he won the election. 

Come back to us with another impeachment resolution when you can add at least five more “really's” to those “grounds” of yours.

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

In a world filled with important real news, what we're mostly hearing today is breathless commentary about all the hand-wringing and pearl-clutching over President Trump’s “offensive personal insults” of people who call him a corrupt, cold-hearted, lying, child-killing, racist, sexist, homophobic Nazi – and of those same people’s outrage over the crowd at last night’s Trump rally chanting “Send her back” when he mentioned Rep. Ilhan Omar, which they should have known would just feed the fire (although to be fair, they might have meant “send her back to Minnesota,” which probably would’ve sparked a chant from Minnesotans: “No, please don’t! No, please don’t!...”)   

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/dems-circle-wagons-around-the-squad-as-omar-responds-to-send-her-back-chant

Trump supporters should realize that they shouldn’t give the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) anything that they can make into a distracting anti-Trump story instead of what should be the real story (the long list of genuinely offensive quotes from Omar that Trump read off, highlighting the glaring gap between Congressional Democrats’ feigned hysteria over his comments and their defense of hers.)

In watching some of the yak-yak over this political theater, I saw a representative for the leftward view on Fox News claim that the Democrats have to go after Trump tooth and claw because during the 2016 election, they adopted the philosophy of “When they go low, we go high,” and they lost.  First of all, I guess that tells us they hold to their high moral principles only as long as it helps them win elections. 

Also, I have a follow-up question: at what point in the 2016 election campaign did the Democrats ever “go high?”  Was Hillary taking the moral high ground against personal insults when she said at least half of Trump’s supporters were a basket of irredeemable sexist, racist, Islamophobic, homophobic, xenophobic deplorables?  (I know she said that; I still have my “Proud member of the basket of deplorables” T-shirt.)  But wait: Trump started all the name-calling, right?  He’s the one who “lowered the tone of political discourse.”  Funny, I seem to recall the left smearing Tea Party members with the homophobic term “teabaggers” and referring to George W. Bush as “Chimpy McBush-Hitler.”  (Probably shouldn’t have put all that viciousness on the Internet if you didn’t want it to be viewable forever.)

So pardon me if I don’t rend my garments over what a mean brute that Trump is for suggesting that people who do nothing else 24/7 but badmouth America might be anti-American.  I reserve my anger for real outrages, like the fact that we actually have an elected Representative (one the entire Democratic Party is rallying to defend) who just introduced a House resolution, wrapped in the cloak of defending “American values,” that would support the odious boycott movement against Israel, which she compared to the Boston Tea Party.

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/language-police-house-dems-push-deceitful-bill-ban-government-saying-illegal-alien/

She also compared Israel, a staunch US ally and the only real democracy in the Middle East, to Nazi Germany and the USSR. 

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/omar-introduces-resolution-defending-boycotts-of-israel-likens-it-to-boycott-of-nazi-germany-soviet-union

Someone should inform her that “USSR” stood for the “Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.”  She should have to apologize profusely for offending her fellow socialists by comparing them to a successful, freedom-loving, capitalist democracy like Israel.

    I read that George Soros is behind putting the squad into our congress. I am sure Obama has helped also. Why do we not hear about this on Fox News? Please expose these monsters and put them all in Gitmo! Enough is enough.

    I suppose like many conservative patriotic Americans, I was a little disappointed that the President walked back the crowd's chant "send her back". The President was right to call the crowd patriots and their chant (not racist) was a reasonable response to many months of Omar's disdain for America, conservative and Republican Americans and our friend and ally, Israel. So this crowd in a sense, like many Americans is saying "enough is enough" and if Omar and any of the "Squad" or anyone else who doesn't like America and its values, then feel free to leave. Leaving this country if you don't like it, is only reasonable. But then we know there is nothing reasonable about the Squad, the left, the Democrats or the mainstream media. They all have an agenda and they are not going to leave. But again, I hope that millions upon millions of Americans, will be just like that crowd at Trump's North Carolina rally and say "send them back" with their votes. Because enough is enough and if we don't take a stand, then the Squad and all the others mentioned (Democrats/Socialist and mainstream media) will continue with their agenda of fundamentally transforming America to fit their liberal ideology.
    The mainstream media was quick to show people in Minneapolis, Mn. welcoming Omar and saying she was one of the most courageous women they know. What a joke. The blind leading the blind!! She is a racist, a hater and all her comments against America, conservative Americans and Israel prove what she really stands for. Wake up America and don't ever fall asleep again as we can never again allow people in Congress who hate our country and want to drastically change it and kill our way of life. Wake up America and don't become complacent and ever again vote Democrats into office anywhere!!!!
    The Democrats have proven themselves for decades, but have become ever so more obvious since Obama and even more so these past two years since they became the majority in the House. Remember and don't forget their actions at this past years SOTU address when they showed their disrespect and disdain for our president and our nation. Never forget their real agenda no matter what they say that sounds good. Wake up and stay awake America and conservative, patriotic, USA loving Americans!!!

    I know people do not like President Trump tweeting things that they seem to think inappropriate and causes everyone to hate him. Who else is going to fight for him if he doesn't do it himself? The media won't and not even some of our republican party will either. I'm saying, I'm glad he said what he said about the so called squad congresswomen. It seems the left and the so called (the squad) can say anything they want but are never held accountable for their racists, hateful, inappropriate, dishonest things about our President, our country and us citizens of the USA. People can burn flags, stand down to our national anthem, talk against our president and country, kill people for just being for America and our President, say racists and hateful things and the so called media will only talk against and accuse our President of being those same things they say everyday. It is dispicable! To be honest Governor Huckebee, I'm glad President Trump said what he said. You know why? Because I wish I could face those women in person and say the exact same things to their faces. I am so unhappy with what is happening to our country. I think all of those democrats that are running for president would say anything, do anything, and even sell their sole just to be president of the USA so they could ruin our country.

    Especially enjoyed your Evening Edition for July 18 (appreciate all of your emails), but truth is truth and you spread it like butter and I am so grateful for you!
    Keep up the excellent and truthful Evening Editions, exposing the most anti-America people that hate our Constitution that have ever been in our history.
    The citizens of this great country need to ban together, share their views, vote in each and every election for those who uphold our Constitution, regardless of how unimportant the election may seem, for this hate and anti-American cancer will continue to spread if we are not actively fighting it with truth and reason!
    Thank you very much Governor Huckabee!

    I think all four of the squad are racist against the whites. Just make sense everyone that's white they're against. And the America way.

    this is yet a furthr demonstration of what blind hatred leads people to. Hatocrat are NOT rational. They have YET to define what a "high crime" is. They don't have a definition for a racist" because they throw the word around in all kinds of meaningless settings. They have revealed themselves in the last 2 years as a party that really only wants one thing; power. They want to rule, they want to destroy and denigrate all of us who are not them. We do have a true war. they declared it. Freedom of speech, freedom to bear arms, Health care, Sovereignty they wish to destroy and they openly state it. In short. The other party is the party of destruction, and taking from us. What do they want? Poverty, crime and misery. Oh and take away all forms of faith. As for me, I will fight to keep those values. I have lived too long and paid too high a price for me faith to give it away to haters of God and America II Tim 3:2-5. These traits are pervasive in the other party. 2020, is "save the republic" I think that should be the secondary conservative slogan. Make no mistake and I know you see this Mike, Soros and the DNC want to destroy this nation and make it into a hell hole like Omar and Tlib came from. With the four we no longer have an option.

    I totally agree with President Trump, "If you don't love this country then leave this country"! I agree Love it or Leave it! I have heard this all my life and it makes perfectly good sense! There was several Hollywood nuts that said they was going to Canada if Trump won-(Whoopi I'm talking to you) they need to leave too! I appreciate Gary Stilwell's comment and want to thank him for his service to our great country! What I believe the "Squad", Progressive Socialist Left, and the Establishment are trying to do is destroy this country and I appreciate and thank President Trump for calling them out and exposing them! I appreciate you Mike for giving us the truth about what is happening in our country!
    Sincerely, a Grateful American

    I don't want the left to "come up with something else"...I want them to actually pass something that is going to help the US as a whole, not just to fit their agenda! This is total bull marlarky! Almost 2 years of NOTHING but TRUMP this or TRUMP that...they've accomplished nothing! Hopefully in 2020 we will have a republican house again and get this done.

    I choke on my coffee every time I hear/read the “When they go low, we go high,” garbage. Just how did Donald Trump or any of the Republicans go low? Just by winning the election? Actually, Donald Trump "went high" by frequently going to cities all over the US to campaign, and to get an idea of what "We The People" want a President to accomplish. And, he's still going high by following through on his campaign promises, not just chucking them once he became President. OTOH--it would seem that hilary went low even before the election. Where to start? Hmm...there's that little problem of a false dossier. Oh, and doing a job on Bernie Sanders. I don't know if you could call it going low--but when she didn't campaign to any extent--which actually showed her true colors--"I'm a clinton, we get things our way, and I want the Presidency--so vote for me!"

    It seems kinda "odd" - not really - that a member of the "squad" who was brought to this country as a child because of the chaos / killing etc. that all but made her "country" irrelevant, (and still is ) and has enjoyed the freedom and opportunities of our country allowing her to be in her present position, is doing all she can to make it like the one her family left . Does anyone know another country that would tolerate this in reverse? With privilege comes responsibility which when abused etc. is forfeited.

    As I have mentioned before the Words used by the Socialists to describe us righties Racist Nazi R just hollow words coming from empty headed buffoons. Reaction to them would make a person a fool. If U have to conduct a conservation with a socialist just talk about policy and Values that every decent person wants Law and order obey the 10 Commandments our Constitution and the ability to obtain a good standard of living don't forget to trust in God. Those are the ingredients to a great America we have about 100 million people who believe that lets add 70 million more.

    I have said this before--Trump wanted to drain the swamp--that includes the rep as well as the the dems.
    The man is callous, speaks his mind, and fires back at stupid crap---as well he should. He is labelled as a racist(not so) but the omar anti-semitic bent is for sure "racist" where is the outrage about this?
    The phrase "if you don't like America, then go back to the shithole of a country you came from" has been around for many, many years--since at least the 1940s(my father told me this)--Trump did not invent this(he simply paraphrased it and cleaned it up) the thrust is still valid.
    I see in the news that a State Senator from Minnesota defends omar's position--he even offered a quote to the Deadline News--
    Minnesota State Senator Matt Klein also weighed in with support.
    “Congresswoman Omar is staying here,” Klein wrote. “I welcome your opinions on her policies. But if you think you are more American than her, you don’t know what America is, and it is you that should leave.”--
    -----I risked my life for this country.This person did not. I consider myself more "American" than her. --So am I now requested to leave?--tell me how this is any different than what the President stated? I can trace my heritage back to 18th century England. My ancestors came here just like many more, helping to build this Country into what it was maybe 40 yrs. ago--before the idiots started to turn it into what is today--the latest blasphemy is what we are dealing with now--free crap for worthless individuals who refuse to work for their keep
