Evening Edition - November 13

November 13, 2019

Excellent piece by Paul Curry at Townhall.com, looking down the road at this week’s public “impeachment” hearings if the Democrats in the House are actually stupid enough to carry their public meltdown over the 2016 election all the way through by voting to impeach the President over whatever the latest ginned up “crime” is (Russian collusion?  No, that collapsed…Obstruction?  No, couldn’t find that either… Oh, right, now I remember: allegedly asking Ukraine to investigate the corruption of their own presidential frontrunner.  That’s it!  Hillary established that investigating corrupt Democratic presidential frontrunners is illegal.) 

https://townhall.com/columnists/paulcurry/2019/11/13/the-impeachment-hearings-are-the-beginning-of-the-end-n2556401

Curry looks way down the road, at what would happen in a Republican-run Senate, the fact that it would happen during an election year, that six Democrat Senators who are running for President would have to go on record voting for or against it, and what voters might think about the Democrats having nothing but this farcical impeachment theater (and whatever lunacy AOC and her socialist Peanut Gallery have dispensed)  as their entire legacy for a two-year House term as they beg Americans to put them in charge of EVERYTHING so they can run the entire country like the US House.   

Curry notes that there are various possible outcomes, and none look good for the Democrats. Right now, all the “evidence” they’ve managed to compile, despite a blatantly biased hearing process, amounts to Deep State bureaucrats having their noses out of joint because they heard third- and fourth-hand rumors that Trump wasn’t making foreign policy the way they would if they actually got elected and had the power to make it, like he did. (This supports my theory that virtually of the “Resistance” movement is based on the left’s inability to accept that Trump is really the President.  They keep getting outraged and running to judges to complain that he’s doing things only a President has the power to do, like rescinding the executive orders of the previous President.  This President must think he’s the President or somethin’!)

You know the Democrats and the media (pardon my redundancy) know they’re in trouble when they act excited about the possibility that one female witness might cry during her testimony and sway voters’ emotions.  I don’t know if that’s more insulting to women or to voters. Personally, I don’t care if Trump making foreign policy decisions instead of some entrenched, unelected Deep State bureaucrat makes the witness cry.  The proper response to that is to offer the witness a Kleenex and press on to the next question.

Today’s cover of the New York Post is probably the best example I’ve ever seen of a media outlet accurately predicting a story that technically hasn’t happened yet.

And here’s another cartoonist giving Adam Schiff and his entire rancid “impeachment” process all the respect that both deserve.

A student at Gulf Coast High School in Florida claims she was told by an assistant principal that she couldn’t start a pro-life student club because it would be “too controversial and too political.” The school official also allegedly warned a staffer that she might lose her job if she agreed to be a faculty adviser to the pro-life club, a threat that scared away both that staffer and her potential replacement.

Fortunately, it appears the story will have a happy ending.  The school claims this was all a big misunderstanding, that the club is welcome, they just have to have a faculty adviser first, and they haven’t found one yet (for some unexplainable reason.)  This has always been their position and has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the Alliance Defending Freedom took up the club’s case and sent the school a letter threatening a big, fat lawsuit for violating the pro-life students’ Constitutional rights.  What stuff and nonsense it is to think that might have had any effect!

“Blame The Gun” News: The Connecticut Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that some parents of victims of the Sandy Hook school shooting in 2012 can sue Remington Arms, maker of the rifle used by the shooter.  Remington argued that it’s protected by a 2005 federal law shielding gun makers from being sued over people’s misuse of their products.  But the state court allowed the lawsuit, basing its ruling on the attitude expressed in Remington’s advertising.

So when this gets to the federal Supreme Court level, as it almost certainly will, the arguments might include a healthy dollop of reminding the court about the First Amendment as well as the Second.

    The lunatic Dems are depending entirely on emotion to get them through the nonsensical impeachment hearings. They are clueless what reality is any more and what the U.S. Constitution really says that constitutes a high crime or misdemeanor. They will all be crying when all this nonsense ends with no Trump impeachment and loss of many House seats as a result in the 2020 election. They will be crying even more when Trump is re-elected in a landslide. Maybe some of them will actually leave the country and spare us having to wipe up all their tears.

    I jsut had a novel thought today; blame democrats not guns. Democrats kill and injure people not guns. how many mass shooting did we have before Joe Biden's "gun free zone." bill became law? Maybe we should be putting democrats in jail and not blame guns. If it wasn't for them and their radical policies, we would not have a mass shooting problem. Come to think of it, how many mass shootings did we have before Charles Whitman? Did we have any? Maybe we should make Joe Biden responsible for Sandy Hook and Parkland not the gun.

    The return on taxpayers' money to fund the politicians' efforts must be way in the negative return column.

    All future candidates for office should be successful in their resp. business, etc. - this should be a requirement to run for public office - and be self supporting financially and not a drain on taxpayer funds from the voting public.

    They should not have better benefits (pension, health care, etc.) than their constituents!

    Also term limits!!

    Why isn't this whole impeachment inquiry not being treated like an impeachment inquiry, but treating and addressing it for what it is - a coup to unseat our President. Some Republicans, like the one's in this charade have done an outstanding job, but what about the rest of the Republicans, why aren't they all (but the few traitors like Romney and the woman from Maine and Alaska) standing up, speaking out everyday and loudly about the Democrats and their agenda's, all of which are against American and Americans. Disappointed in the Republican party and hope they can start seeing that they need to restore the trust of the American people. There is still time, but the clock in ticking. They should have all the ammunition they need for political campaign ads, but it is going to take a lot more than that- because you have the fake, lying mainstream media working with the Democrats and feeding the blind liberal people exactly what they know they will believe and they know these same libs will never research anything for themselves, but grab their propaganda- hook, line and sinker and run with it to the voting booths, to once again vote for the corrupt, despicable Democrats- so wake up Republican party and start fighting like you should have a long time ago !!!!

    Governor Huckabee:
    i noticed today that Nervous Nancy says there were Impeachable items during the hearing,
    however after listening to the "star" witnesses and some of the guests on Hannity and Laura's
    shows last night along with Jim Jordan, she is just plumb crazy, NOTHING Burger! I want to
    think she was not even at the hearing.
    Wish someone could just stop the insanity and Congress could go back to work.

    Regarding the Remington suit, that is akin to suing Ford or Dodge or some other automobile manufacturer when one of their manufactured cars is driven in a case involving a death. Or...suing Cessna when a private pilot runs out of fuel due to his/her own lack of preparation and crashes. Or...but you get the idea.

    Hello Mike,
    Let the three ring circus begin with the ring leader one of the most unethical liar this nation has ever had, well besides the Clintons'. I still cannot believe some conservative talk host do not see this as a coup to take down President Trump. How can people be so blinded by what is going on. May be you can explain this to us all.

    Allowing the families of the Sandy Hook victims to sue Remington: HUGE can of worms opened.

    What next? Families of drunk driver victims allowed to sue the car maker and the brewery/distillery?

    I wish I had confidence that the Supreme Court will care what the First or Second Amendment say. But if they did they had an opportunity to show that, but refused to hear the case. None of President Trumps Supreme Court picks, not his current Attorney General, have a history of strong support of the Second Amendment.

    Mr. Huckabee: After today, the impeachment inquiry is over. The republicans must now put a motion on the floor to end it. The republicans did a great job, especially John Radcliffe, as well as Jim Jordon and a couple of other republicans. The evidence revealed today by Radcliffe together with some things testified to by witness Kent, for one that no investigations of Hunter Biden is going on in the Ukraine and the money was given, repeat the law noted about corruption, and you have the proof President Trump can NEVER be guilty of anything having to do with the Ukraine - no matter what anyone else may say. Wish one of the republicans heard from today would put that together and move to end the impeachment inquiry.

    The state department employees that don't like being sidestepped are used to their bad practices on acting with impunity. They believe that they are invaluable and how dare the POTUS to act without counseling them. They all have been spoiled by administrations who let them have free reign and let them believe that they were essential. Keep going Donsld. We love uh our style of ignoring the sw as mp keepers.

    The reason that Schiff won't name the whistle blower is that he can't. There isn't one. He made it up and ran with it. He hasn't been able to find anyone to volunteer to play the part of the whistleblower. And I don't think any of them today won Oscars for their performances. Schiff made it appear that he wrote all the scripts for the democrats and maybe the witnesses too. The republicans really did a good job of research and getting the truth out there.

    We as decent people are taught to find something good in our Creators people. He didn't make it easy I look at Pelosi Schiff the creppy porn lawyer Maxie Watters Booker Harris and most of the Lefts officials. What these people do the actions they take are against my values as An American Citizen. I doubt I could sit down with them and enjoy a plate of wings with them eating is a celebration not anything worth celebrating with their ideals I could live with their hipocritical outlook their pompous behavior it would be a little challenge to debate why they are absurd so I looked to to see where the good is this is what I came up with hundreds of millions people around the World are praying first they leave every office that are paid by taxpayers second we pray every corrupt dollar they got is turned over to our Vets Organizations St Judes Mental Health care which they will need when they are voted out of office and broke. These are very corrupt people and very Dishonest Hey Mitt R. your included. Amen!!!!!!

    Gov. Mike, I think I caught a typo above in the line:
    "... whatever lunacy AOC and her socialist Peanut Gallery have dispensed) as their entire legacy for a two-year House term as they beg Americans to put them in charge of EVERYTHING so they can run the entire country like the US House."
    "run" should read "ruin" ... Right?

    This is the only avenue I have to sound off. I would like someone to tell Donald Trump Jr. to stop the hard sell, guilt trip over contributing. Some of us have limited funds and I don't appreciate his approach to asking for money. I am a free will giver not someone who wants to be badgered. Plus they have me on a monthly giving and I have never checked that box. Getting very frustrated. I may just block my phone. Plus if someone isn't punished soon for all the crimes they have committed against this President I am about ready to bow out. The swamp is so huge there is no way to clear it.

    The GOP needs to step up. Every witness against the president, every staffer that overheard a conversation, every person that made assumptions about what Trump's thoughts were, and the whistleblower, should have as intense a background check as Judge Kavanaugh.These people are accusing the president of the United States. there should be no doubt about their integrity and honesty. If they lied to their kindergarten teacher--we the people should know about that, so should Congress..

    When president Trump is done being taken to the Shiff house and dumped on, not only should the Democrat candidates be concerned, but (don't tell anyone) the party should be very concerned that all that Shiff they tried to throw against the wall.......didn't stick. The voters of America are watching this petty temper tantrum by the sore losers in Congress and will rememcer come election day. Like the sidewalks of San Francisco, Congress will have to be steam cleaned to remove the Shiff from the place.
