Evening Edition - October 4

October 4, 2019

For someone who’s not running for President in 2020, Hillary Clinton sure is making a lot of what look like campaign appearances.  Yesterday, she appeared on “The View” to offer what I think by latest count is her 389th excuse for losing in 2016.  To name just a handful of the previous things she blamed: Russian collusion, James Comey, Wikileaks, men telling their wives not to vote for her, the Electoral College, uninformed voters, voter suppression, and of course, that golden oldie, the fact that a quarter of the electorate are a basket of irredeemable racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamphobic, xenophobic deplorables.  We can now add to that something that was actually her own doing: she “came across as too serious” and failed to show us what a “fun” gal she really is.  I kid you not.

As I told Sean Hannity on Fox News last night, I ran for President twice and the reason I lost both times was quite simple: more people voted for the other guy.  That is the only reason why any candidate loses.

Look, it’s an incredible honor just to be able to run, to have enough supporters to mount a campaign, get on the debate stage and add your ideas to the national conversation.  But if you don’t win, then you accept the will of the people graciously, congratulate the winner, and try to find ways to work together for the good of all Americans until the next election, when your side has to work harder and try to win.  That’s the way our system worked for over two centuries, and it was a great system with a peaceful transfer of power that was the envy of the world…up until 2016 and the “resistance” Democrats, who’ve refused from day one to respect the choice of the voters. 

That’s why no thinking person takes their claims of President Trump committing various impeachable offenses seriously: they gave away their game too soon by vowing that they would impeach him the minute he was elected.  Ever since, they’ve obviously been obsessed with impeachment and the grounds were always just an inconvenient afterthought. We all know that.  

If Hillary really thinks she knows why she didn’t win, then stop making excuses and prove it.  Get back in the race and run for a third time.  Please, Hillary, run! Your Party needs you!  (See, that’s how to show you’re not being serious.) 

One other thing worth noting about Hillary’s appearance on “The View,” and maybe this was just her way of showing that she’s capable of not being serious all the time: she said that her advice to any Trump officials subpoenaed to testify to Congress was to be honest and “tell the truth.”  Well, I guess those who can’t do, teach.

 

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

A woman showed up at a townhall by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and told her the Green New Deal didn’t solve the CO2 problem fast enough. She said the world was going to end in seven months if we don’t reduce the population now, and while a Swedish professor said we should eat dead people, that’s not fast enough, so "we got to start eating babies! We don't have enough time! ... We have to get rid of the babies! ... We need to eat the babies!"  She eventually took off her jacket to reveal a T-shirt reading, “Save the planet, eat the children.”

Some conservative commentators made sport of the display, which frankly sounded like a piece of satirical political theater to me.  They also criticized AOC for letting this go on and not making it clear to the woman that the solution to cleaning the environment was not to kill and eat babies (well, not to eat them…killing babies apparently is a big part of the left’s overall plan.)  AOC tweeted, “This person may have been suffering from a mental condition and it’s not okay that the right-wing is mocking her and potentially make (sic) her condition or crisis worse. Be a decent human being and knock it off.”

She has a point.  Although it’s also a bit self-serving because if we’re not allowed to criticize leftwing activists just because they might have mental conditions, that puts an awful lot of our opponents off limits for discussion.

Show of hands:  Who’s surprised that the Freedom From Religion Foundation has already launched a judicial conduct complaint, claiming that it was inappropriate and unconstitutional for the judge in the Amber Guyger trial to give Guyger her personal Bible, a hug and some encouraging words of faith after she was sentenced to ten years in prison – that is, AFTER the trial had ended, and her role as a judge was completed?

Not seeing any hands out there.  I guess this is my kind of crowd. 

 

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

I’m so sorry to report that my long-time Fox colleague and personal friend Todd Starnes has left Fox News.  Earlier reports that it was because of comments he made about Democrats and abortion on his radio show Monday were denied by Fox executives, who said Starnes’ departure was already in the works.   

https://www.westernjournal.com/fox-news-host-todd-starnes-comment-democrats-abortion-says-departure-works-comments/

His voice was a solid voice for conservative and Christian issues and is one of the most articulate and creative voices speaking about the changing culture.  I’m sure he’ll keep speaking out via his radio show, books, column and website, www.toddstarnes.com.  

 

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

 

 

Just this year alone, a prominent political figure has taken to social media to repost and promote four different stories that turned out to be hoaxes.  Wow, can you believe what a dumb, lying ignoramus that Donald Trump is?  Why, I…

Oh, wait.  It wasn’t Trump.  It was Rep. Rashida Tlaib of AOC’s “squad,” who has leapt to promote and wholeheartedly take a public stand on four alleged hate crime stories that later fell apart.

https://www.westernjournal.com/rashida-tlaib-duped-inaccurate-racial-story-4th-time-2019/

So far, no apologies or retractions from her on any of them.  Come on, even the New York Times occasionally runs a correction of one of its fake news stories on page B-37.

Hold on, you mean a lawsuit by a former employee claims that Robert DeNiro is foul-mouthed, crude, abusive and threatening? Well, knock me over with a feather, whoever would have imagined Robert DeNiro acting like that?!

 

Three words of advice: "Anger management class."

    Mike:
    The Demoncrats are in total freefall if they are going to rely on Hillary to bail them out. The Bidens will soon pull out of the race under the weight of all their corruption in Ukraine and Chine, Bernie's heart problems will prevent him from reaching the 2020 finish line, Elizabeth is too radical for Wall Street and all the others have serious character flaws and and are basically un-electable. That will leave Hillary, the queen mother of all liars and master of the excuse. When she loses again in 2020, she will come up with another 100 reasons she lost to Trump, not one of which is she is the most corrupt and biggest lawbreaker of any presidential candidate of all time.

    TDS is alive and well. Seems to be infesting the masses as well. Poor insane woman who wants us to EAT babies? really, how rational is that. Tlaib? That woman needs to go home and stay there. She has no place in US society. but then almost half is filled with hate...so. De Niro needs to be ignored, He is a long past has been. Yeah we need a clean sweep in 2020. take out the trash.

    The squad are they they suffering from all the Impeachment coverage they get a little attention maybe thats why Pelosi is taking center stage to keep them off the stage. However with AOC's set up with the eat the babies loon after the Left has murdered babies at abortion was good to get back on the stage; what happened to Pressely what has she been up to she tried to debate Candice Owens and flopped it got to the point where Candice embarrassed Pressly that she had to talk over her she couldn't or does not have enough intelligence to defend what she said without someone writing her script for her unimpressive. Omar has been quiet having married her brother and having tax fraud and issues with campaign funds must keep her from bashing Jewish people and it's Country; and How about the Mfer T shirt maker what a beauty, Race Baiting now seems to be her job now oh no she not going after MF Honkies she is now going after her own Race what is next is going after Aliens from space next for her unique sense of Intelligence. The Squad should be labeled the 4 MISFITS not fit for normal Humans.

    1st...I voted for you. 2nd...we have spineless Republicans in office that just sit back and take all this and will never do a darn thing to retaliate...We have all the evidence...why is nothing being done to put these DEMS in JAIL?

    I hope Brandt Jean and Judge Tammy Kemp have started a resurgence of including God in the courtroom and other government places of assembly where He has been forbidden! Their public acts of grace and compassion can act as a catalyst to start a badly needed spiritual awakening in our country! God bless them; and shield them from attacks by the one who comes to kill, steal and destroy!!

    Well, at least finally the AOC crowd has a viable means by which to rescue us from the dreaded Climate Change impending crisis. I guess eating them is the next logical step if you're going to kill them?????

    I can't believe that any ?person? with even half a brain would advocate eating babies. That person needs to be locked up!!!!!!

    I enjoy reading your evening report as well as the morning report. I rarely watch TV anymore as they are all to Liberal for me. I am a concerned conservative and do not mind telling people so.
    Thanks for you telling it like it is. I really miss your daughter - liked her when she was White House Spokesperson and wish we could see more of her. But she has a family and it is good she is making choices which includes her family.
    You raised a real good girl.

    I’m a little disappointed that you used the old phrase putting down teachers. “ Those who can’t do, teach. I’m sure it was probably a tongue in check statement, but you didn’t really clarify that. As a retired teacher it just seems to put that statement back into people’s minds.

    My 86 year old mother is convinced Hillary is going to swoop in and “save” the Democratic Party by running for President again. She believes Hillary has set up Biden with the Ukraine information. She knows the country isn’t ready to officially go socialist, so she will be the logical “savior” for all of us to turn to in order to get rid of Trump. Mom may be correct after listening to Ol’ Hil this week!

    I believe the zealous Dems trying to impeach the President, drag VP Pence through the dirt and
    push Ms. Pelosi into the Oval Office aren't worried about the hand of God in human events, much less estimating Him.

    We just listened to Glenn Beck's "Ukraine: The Democrats' Russia.
    Will you be commenting on it? We were very interested, not having listened to him before. What say you?

    Thank you so much for your newsletters. Spelled out perfectly. I can't stand anyone of the "squad". I believe they started a lot of this disruptions & divisions in our country, in addition to Mad, Max Waters! I use to be a big fan of DeNiro, but no more. I thought he played some good roles. He has an awful foul mouth. He needs anger management. I don't think anyone who's behind the corruption will get any jail time, just a slap on the hand, that would be sad. The dems only want the President out, doesn't matter how, they're so determined, they're hurting all of us. As I said previously, I think they're getting under the President's skin. I pray for his health.

    I watch your show every weekend. I record just in case I have to be gone, don't want to miss. I appreciate you & Sarah so much, voted for you as I wanted you to be President and sorry you didn't win it all. Prayers & support are always with you.
