Evening Edition - August 29

August 29, 2019

Here's a sampling of the agog reaction to James Comey arrogantly implying he deserves an apology for people saying he did anything wrong after the IG report went on for page after page listing all the outrageously wrong things he did (well, he didn't leak government information to the media...he gave it to a friend to leak for him.  See, squeaky clean!) If he had any shame, he'd disappear and change his name.  I suggest "Hugh Briss."  
To wash that out of your mind, here's something genuinely funny, courtesy of Trump's website:  


--------------------------------
The DNC announced that they had “certified” ten candidates to appear in the next Democratic debate, and as I suspected, Tulsi Gabbard, who deflated Silicon Valley pet Kamala Harris’ support by pointing out her record as California Attorney General (and who also occasionally showed some sense, so she never fit in with the cool kids in this group) was left out.  This despite the fact that she’s polling higher than some of the people the DNC let in.  They claim her polls didn’t meet their double super-secret criteria. I would note that they kept Gabbard out while letting some men who poll below her in, which smells like rank sexism to me, but whatever. 
 
 
Some of the ten who were excluded did not have kind words to say about the DNC’s lack of transparency, questionable rules and apparent favoritism, but if they watched the 2016 primary, at least they can’t say they’re surprised. Some are vowing to continue, including New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio, who is moving on to Nevada and New Hampshire.  I guess anything is better than going home and dealing with the mess he’s made in New York.  Although I half expected to see him outside the venue on debate night, holding a homemade sign that reads, “Will tax the h*** out of you for food.” 
 
---------------------------------
I mentioned that it seemed to be “Fake News Thursday,” and I wasn’t the only one who noticed.  The mainstream media met the day with such a blizzard of lies that Stephen Kruiser, who does the daily morning round-up for PJ Media, had to devote his entire edition to covering all the retractions. 
 
https://pjmedia.com/trending/the-morning-briefing-nbc-fake-news-blues-edition/
 
I already told you about Lawrence O’Donnell making up Russian collusion fables about President Trump on MSNBC and being spanked hard by Trump’s attorneys, and about WaPo lifting a comment out of context from Trump’s Press Secretary and applying it to an unrelated story.  But there's much more...
 
NBC ran a story (illustrated with a picture of the eeeeeeevil Trump, naturally) claiming that as of October, the government would no longer automatically consider children born outside the US to US service members as American citizens.  After it went all over the Internet (where it will no doubt continue to be cited with fury by Democratic Presidential candidates, just like the debunked “fine people on both sides” lie), NBC issued a retraction, admitting that the new policy only applies to children adopted outside the US, not children born to service members.  And they’re not denied US citizenship, they just have to fill out paperwork; it won’t be granted automatically.  
 
The New York Times also burnished the fine reputation for bedbuggery that it’s earned this week by running a slanderous hit piece on the Tea Party, blaming it for the atmosphere of anger in politics, with added commentary by Paul “Markets will never recover under Trump” Krugman chiming in to claim that the Tea Party was never about small government or budget deficits but only “racial anger,” and it opposed big government “only to the extent that it helps ‘Those People.’” 
 
To set the record straight: I was around in the early days of the Tea Party movement.  I went to some rallies, and met a lot of the people involved, who, incidentally, represented a wide spectrum of racial backgrounds.  There were three things I never once saw at any Tea Party rally that you might easily see at any leftist gathering: 
 
1.  Angry, violent, racist rhetoric.
 
2.  Piles of litter and garbage. 
 
3.  Paul Krugman. 
 
Finally (well, it’s the last example I’ll mention anyway), I was on “The Story” with Martha MacCallum Wednesday, and I’ll toss this on the Fake News pile: one topic we discussed was the Washington Post having to issue a retraction after a columnist lifted a quote from author J.D. Vance totally out of context in an attempt to tie him, and the pro-life movement in general, to white supremacists.  The video of the Aug. 28 show is at FoxNews.com, and if you can’t access it, it should appear soon on YouTube: 
 
 
We also talked about a shocking new survey showing how young Americans are rejecting patriotism and religion and embracing the failed, poisonous system of socialism.  It’s a stunning indictment of what a terrible mistake it was for parents to allow the left to infiltrate the school system and turn it into an indoctrination camp.  The story included some on-the-street interviews with young people who blame America for all the ills of the world, and one jaw-dropping moment when a young woman says it’s really difficult to be a proud American “when so many Americans are getting deported.” 
 
Seriously.  I assumed she probably went to college, because I don’t know how she could be that ignorant if she hadn’t. 
 
I’ve noted before that the left can’t point to any successes out of experience or history, so the only way they win arguments is to rewrite history and redefine words.  In this case, they’ve convinced a young woman that we are “deporting Americans.”  
 
“Deporting” means sending someone back to their nation of origin, usually because they have violated the law so egregiously (note to college students: that means “badly”) that their host nation doesn’t want to deal with them anymore.  You know, like MS-13 gang members being deported back to Mexico.  So think hard:  How can America “deport” Americans?  You should know instinctively that the people being deported are not Americans because America can’t deport Americans.  Where would we send them?  
 
Of course, this confusion is the end result of the left constantly redefining words.  "Illegal alien" was clear and accurate, so it had to be declared non-PC and replaced with "illegal immigrant," then "undocumented immigrant," then "undocumented resident," until the idea has now become so fuzzily-defined that illegal alien criminals are indistinguishable from "Americans." So we're deporting Americans.
As idiotic as that is, I wouldn’t be surprised if “Trump Deports Americans!” were tomorrow’s big headline story on most major media outlets. 
 
 
---------------------------------

A big salute to VA Secretary Robert Wilkie for taking a clear stand against the Obama Administration’s hostility to and restrictions on religious beliefs among military members. It’s said that there are no atheists in foxholes, but most of the previous Administration’s military officials never spent any time in a foxhole. Wilkie had some choice words for them about the history of the US, its military and its religious foundations. In short, we don’t have a military so we can wage war on our own soldiers’ religious freedoms.

Last week, in a 2-1 decision, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a lower court ruling and sided with Christian videographers Carl and Angel Larsen, ruling that the state of Minnesota did not have the right to force them to accept jobs making videos of same-sex weddings. The state had threatened them with steep fines and even prison time if they refused to compromise their religious values. But the Court wrote that wedding videos “are a form of speech that is entitled to First Amendment protection. The Supreme Court long ago recognized that ‘expression by means of motion pictures is included within the free speech and free press guaranty of the First and Fourteenth Amendments.’”

To all the leftists going ballistic over this, I suggest you stop and think what would happen if all the Christians and conservatives in America decided that Hollywood was not properly serving the entire US community and was discriminating against us, so we sued all the movie and TV studios, demanding that half of all the films and TV shows they create start fairly depicting our point of view.

Wow, it got so quiet, I can hear crickets.

    Thank you sir! I really appreciate you putting this out there. While I agree with you 100%, maybe we should make this a bit more clear. The Americas encompasses several countries North, Central and South. We are the United States of America. Mexico and Canada: our nearest neighbors also live on the American continent. South America is considered America. Thus our children are confused. They can become even more so if we continue to define the whole American continent as ours by saying we're departing Americans from America we are the United States of America! I'm not sure how else I can phrase this that might make sense but I think you would get the idea. Thank you for your time and your dedication to this newsletter! Keep the faith and may God bless you and may God bless the United States of America!

    RE: Hong Kong
    It is clear to me that Mainland China has interfered in Hong Kong rule prematurely. They were supposed to wait 50 years. In fact, when the lease was signed in 1898, it was intended to be returned to Traditional China, not communist China. Therefore, in 1997 at the end of the 99 year lease, Hong Kong should be returned to Taiwan, not communist China. On this basis, since the people of Hong Kong are more like the people of Taiwan, Taiwan should declare Hong Kong to be a province of Taiwan. The land is not going to move and this would end the protests and unrest in Hong Kong that plagues the mainland. These 22 year old young people will likely live another 60 years and will be protesting in their walkers. They will never let the communists pacify them or take away their freedom.

    I so appreciate your frank discussion of the news. It clarifies a lot of muddy water. It's the one place I can actually learn about what's going on instead of having to listen to mountains of opinions that, in the end, say nothing. Thank you.

    If leftists spent their time telling the truth they wouldn't have to spend time in retractions nor would they for long be leftists. if we are going to deport "americans" then they should be deported to a place that has socialism like Cuba, Venezuela, China, vietnam, Burma. It's ot een in the old Yugoslavia. Maybe wwe should give them some land out of sight to form their OWN socialist government. NW Montana, part of Death Valley. There is plenty of land in AZ between Nogales and Yuma ha, ha! they want socialism, let them form their own society.Apparently 93 Trillion dollars over 10 years hasn't registered yet.

    I heard on the radio yesterday that a scientific research firm had reviewed the widely-accepted claim to their being a gene that causes homosexuality and could find no evidence for it. Have you heard anything more on that?

    Jimmy Comey can not feel shame he is too morally corrupt for shame we can forget about that. I hope due process deals with him as savagely as possible. Jimmy it will be good for you to be with other criminals in a controlled environment you can use your your smug grin to make friends. My guess is it won't last too long. Look at your twin Billie D the NY Mayor you two are tied for most friends 2 each. Mike it is stunning how much ignorance can be stuffed into a human body truly Amazing one of the fun features of being conservative is they make me feel like a really smart guy. Also tell the Socialists the reward for the capture of Big Foot is 10 million dollars last seen in LA do not fear Big Foot fear the rats!

    Your discussion about three things you didn't see at a Tea Party rally, two were redundant:

    I've wondered why the people like the Denver "attorney" haven't gone to muslim bakeries, photographers, etc, and demanded THEY provide service to same-sex marriage. Maybe afraid of the repercussions? Or, why don't the activists demand muslim food stores serve pork products--there are millions of people who like a good ol' steak, hot dog, rack of bacon. Oh, yeah. Silly me, I forget muslim is a protected religion, Christian religions are not.

    I have to smh at the outrage about comey being fired---finally. The loudest of the snowflake crybabies forget they were DEMANDING comey be fired--up to the time of the announcement that he was fired. They also seem to forget rosenstein wrote a letter RECOMMENDING he be fired. They like to portray it all as something done at the drop of a hat by President Trump, with no input from anyone else.

    I remember back when there was negative reporting on the Tea Party in the first years. Racist, blah, blah, blah. Of course, they did selective photographing of the rallies, showing only white people, when people of all races who attended who reported the msm was misleading its viewership.

    I read a headline about ocasio saying something about millenials--they "read history." I'd like to know what revisionist history she might be referring to. It sure seems that actual history isn't taught much in many schools. I can't remember which of them demands that the UN troops take over our border security. Well, since US troops most always are among those sent wherever the UN calls--it seems that would be a good way to get our troops to the border--and the left can't complain, being as it is all her (whichever one it was) idea. Or, maybe she will insist on being the one to "lead" the UN troops--what would she do, instruct them to shoot Border Patrol? Oh, yeah--the UN should deal with the border crisis--you know, the one that is completely fabricated by President Trump. Hey, missy, either there's a crisis, or there isn't. Make up your mind.

    Last night I commented that I hope the Trump/Conservative search for justice doesn’t go the same way that impeachment via Russian collusion went. That is nowhere. Today we have Comey getting off without punishment. The fact that all his wrong doing got pointed out is not good enough. He will get a job with msnbc or another so called news network for big bucks. No jail time means no justice.

    This is a big dent in our justice system! I hope the AG's office isn't part of the "swamp." I can't believe Jim Comey gets away with no prosecution! Something doesn't "jive!" On another note, I caught the last couple of seconds of Neil Cavota's closing remarks & it seemed to be aimed at the President something to do with media coverage, that the President doesn't like, I think. Is it possible for you send a video of Neil's comments today? I missed most of today's news.
