Evening Edition - January 28

January 28, 2020 |

The alleged “blockbuster revelation” of John Bolton’s upcoming book (the claim that President Trump did want to withhold aid to Ukraine until they investigated corruption, including the Bidens) is all the media want to talk about this week, since otherwise, they’d have to cover the way Trump’s defense team is utterly destroying the Democrats’ impeachment case, smashing it into splinters, burning the splinters, then scattering the ashes.

A few things worth noting before allowing yourself to be swept up in this manufactured and conveniently well-timed media frenzy: First, this is yet another “anonymously sourced” New York Times story about the inner workings of the Trump White House, which in the past have proven to be less accurate than most newspapers’ daily horoscope columns. And about that “anonymous” source, no doubt an objective but patriotic whistleblower, right?...

https://pjmedia.com/trending/wonder-how-the-nyt-got-the-leak-from-boltons-unpublished-book-look-whos-reportedly-vetting-it/

Bolton is getting plenty of criticism from the right for the suspicious timing of his book (and the leak), but possibly none more righteous or well-informed than this demand from his own friend and former chief of staff:

https://www.westernjournal.com/bolton-blasted-friend-right-hand-man-told-withdraw-book-immediately/

The incendiary claim in the Times headline actually isn’t even supported by the alleged excerpt that they printed. Some analysts say it even clears Trump of the impeachment charges by showing that he did believe Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election, which made it his duty to pressure them to investigate corruption.

Rather than go through all this myself, I'll just point you to the best write-up that I’ve seen. It's by William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection, who points out how the Bolton leak follows the predictable template the Democrats created for the Brett Kavanaugh hearings (refined from the Mueller “Russia Collusion” hoax), to inflict maximum political damage and drag out the process by duping moderate Republican Senators into allowing a parade of questionable “new witnesses” whose testimony ranges from absurd to irrelevant.

https://legalinsurrection.com/2020/01/democrats-kavanaughing-impeachment-trial-as-predicted-john-bolton-leak-came-as-house-case-was-collapsing/

Jacobson rounds up a lot of facts and commentaries that are worth knowing and getting little attention elsewhere. Plus, I have to quote the reaction to this article from Instapundit’s Sarah Hoyt:

“Even if Trump did everything the Dems allege? Not a crime, much less a high crime. Under this standard every President of the US would be impeached. To quote Frozen, 'Let it go.' Or in this case, tell Schiffty to pack his bag of tricks and go find something more entertaining or productive to do, like swallowing goldfish or learning to apply his makeup so he doesn’t look like Pee-Wee Herman.”

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

The Democrats never tire of trying to paint President Trump as a “bully,” a “thug” or a Mafia boss. Yet they can’t seem to stop themselves from trying to win their loooongshot impeachment trial by repeatedly threatening the jurors. The latest to channel her inner Don Corleone: Nancy Pelosi:

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

With all the “Impeachment” hysteria to cover, I haven’t brought you up to date in a while on the Democratic Presidential race. Fortunately, blogger Lawrence Person has posted another of his periodic and comprehensive “Democratic Clown Car Updates.” Surprisingly, since the last update, no candidates have dropped out, not even the ones you didn’t remember were running.

https://www.battleswarmblog.com/?p=43263

A few highlights and observations:

Bernie Sanders is leading in a number of polls in Iowa, which is making Democrats fear for their electoral chances and me fear for the sanity of Iowa Democrats. If they really think that America needs a socialist President, then I suspect they’ve been turning all their corn crops into corn squeezin’s and chugging them.

Joe Biden took pandering to new heights by declaring transgender rights to be “the civil rights issue of our time.” Sorry, women and girls: your rights to feel safe in private places or to have your own school and professional sports are officially yesterday’s civil rights issues.

We also learn that while Mike Bloomberg might be trying to buy the Presidency with his billions, at least he’s redistributing his own wealth. He’s not only blowing tons of money on ads (you can’t watch anything on YouTube without seeing him promise to make your life better by taking away your guns or some other thing you like), he’s also paying pretty big wages to the people working for his campaign. This could be the only time in years that I’ve seen a Democrat create good-paying jobs, but they’re all jobs working for his campaign or media outlets (same thing, in many cases.) Of course, if I were a journalist at Bloomberg news outlets, you’d have to pay me a lot to swallow my principles and write nothing but negative stories about Trump and positive stories about Bloomberg. But then, that’s not journalism, that’s PR work, which usually pays better.

FYI: Bloomberg may be willing to squander a billion of his own dollars to defeat Trump, but it’s been pointed out that Hillary Clinton’s campaign spent $2 billion, nearly twice what Trump spent, and still lost.

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

And here’s a story that came in too late for Person’s latest Democratic Clown Car Update: Pete Buttigieg wants the 20 million or so Democrats who consider themselves to be pro-life to know that there is no place for their beliefs in the modern Democratic Party. Well, at least he’s being honest about where they stand on the sanctity of life, so when they claim to care so much about the “children,” you know it means even less than their claim to care about “diversity.”

https://freebeacon.com/politics/buttigieg-no-room-for-compromise-with-pro-life-democratic-voters/

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

If the idea behind impeaching President Trump was to smear him enough to depress his supporters and harm his reelection chances, it’s backfiring in the Democrats’ faces like one of Wile E. Coyote’s Acme Roadrunner Cannons. Here’s the latest news that should have the DNC sweating more than the Iowa Bernie surge:

In New Jersey, the Governor, Lieutenant Governor and both Senators are Democrats. Democrats outnumber Republicans 2-1 in both Houses of the Legislature. The state has gone to the Democrats in every Presidential race since 1992. It’s considered one of the bluest of blue states.

President Trump is holding a rally tonight in Wildwood, New Jersey, at a venue that holds up to 10,000 people. There were a record-shattering 175,000 requests for tickets. He’s considering holding another rally in New Jersey soon in a far larger venue.

Conclusion: Impeachment is helping turn Donald Trump into the new Bruce Springsteen.

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

As fans of basketball legend Kobe Bryant continue to grieve his death in a helicopter crash Sunday that also killed his young daughter and seven others, this story reminds us that he would no doubt appreciate all the prayers that are being said for him and the other crash victims.

Joy Villa wasn’t the only person at the Grammy Awards who dared to enter that limousine liberal lion’s den wearing pro-Trump messages. Ricky Rebel, a gay singer/songwriter, transgender activist and (believe it or not) outspoken Trump supporter, wore an elaborate and revealing red lace outfit that included a message on what he thinks about the Democrats’ impeachment mania.

Warning: This link includes a photo/video of a certain part of the anatomy that isn’t normally exposed to public view in polite society, but that’s where the message is written.

    I too am getting frustrated with weak Republicans. It was stated clearly everything wrong with this impeachment trial. But still they want to drag it on, due to weak news bites. The media should not be allowed with their usually proven wrong news bites to disrupt this. When will someone disrupt the slimmy NYT? And all others that fall in that non news territory. Romney should go back to Romper room & learn what true order is & to follow the leader. Not to get distracted. Pay attention to what is on the blackboard in front of you. Thanks Govenor for reporting truth. I refuse to watch local news or read the local papers. Don't have cable, so that knocks out the other news outlets for me.

    The Senators and the people know the two House impeachment articles sent to the Senate are not crimes and are not impeachable under the Constitution and anything Bolton might choose to say about the House impeachment articles would still make them non-crimes and not impeachable under the Constitution. So why would Mitt Romney, or any republican Senator, say they want to hear from Bolton when whatever Bolton might choose to say changes nothing? Is Mitt Romney unable to rationally or intelligently think this through and figure out whatever Bolton has to say would change nothing? Romney did prove himself slow intellectually when he ran for President. Or, does Mitt Romney want the democrats to continue their false rhetoric against President Trump for personal reasons? We can believe that because we heard all Romney's highly critical and personal rants against President Trump. Romney's potential vote to support witnesses and carry on the democrats' impeachment sham is not to appeal to his Utah voters because I read his poll numbers in Utah are falling. Hopefully, Romney will find the capacity to figure this out, will put his personal feelings and vendetta against the President aside and vote with the Senate republicans against witnesses and end a disgraceful, corrupt moment in the history of the US House of Representatives.

    Mike, I'm taking a stab at your last article featuring Joy Villa and Ricky Rebel. Seriously, I had no idea who Joy was until she was featured in different awards shows. She turned the libs heads upside down with her wonderful outfit supporting Pres Trump. As usual the libs heads were on fire since she is young woman who "should" be a democrat. She is a free thinker, not sheep follower.
    Next up Ricky Rebel. Again I had not known who Ricky was until he took center stage supporting the pres. Again the usual suspects, aka dems, were outraged that Ricky would support our pres. After all in their minds if one is gay, bisexual, transgender, or anything else, they should be the aforementioned. Though I am not that comfortable with the transgenders, that doesn't mean I should discount Ricky, or anybody else, as a person. That means I am equal to God, ha.
    I'm glad we have people who willing step out of the norm, aka despicable dems, and claim that they have a pres that works for the people than for their own self righteousness.
    Mike thank you for stepping up and reporting the truth, rather than the lies I've seen on all the alphabet news groups, except for Fox News, One America News and Newsmax, and of course your weekly show.
    May God bless you, our pres, and America.

    After hearing last night that four Republican senators want to call more witness after the predictable “bombshell”, I am seriously thinking about leaving the Republican Party. I tired of this party even when having control in the Senate can’t come together to protect our President. Although I can’t see me ever voting for a Democrat....being Independent may help me feel less frustrated with this “do nothing” group.

    Two great days for Trump defense team. Yesterday professor Dershowitz was the "demolition man", tearing up one by one the arguments of "abuse of power" Magister dixit ! Today the magnificent trio Cipoloni - Sekulow - Himlin cleared up the remaining impeachment trash. Sekulow delivered methodically blow after blow, letting us at breath limit with his well studied interruptions. Himlin, stone faced, was the executioner of article 2. Cipoloni directed this time his heavy artillery, in a polite and suave manner, to the Senate Minority Leader. Never , even in his wildest dreams, didn't Shummer expect Pat Cipoloni telling him "I agree with you !" It was like watching an Oscar winning movie. Remembering Spencer Tracy in "Inherit the Wind" and Gregory Peck In "To Kill a Mockingbird", both of them playing defense attorneys, both of them Oscar winners, I am thinking that sometimes real life is more impressive than an Oscar movie.

    The only time I watch TV is when I go to bed and turn it on while I am having my night time snack and, last night, WHEN I turned the TV, on I learned about this tragic loss of Kobe Bryant....

    This is but one of so many examples of how fragile...and unpredictable...life is.
    This man had everything to live for and little did he know when he got into that helicopter that that would be the final chapter of his life...and his daughter's life!
    AND little did his family know the agonizing grief that would be theirs.

    As I write this I am too tired to try and be articulate about how my watching this story about Kobe Bryant...and how people were so devastated BY it....made the thought of all the focus that is being put on this impeachment trial even more intolerable to me!!!!

    These people whose only goal is to destroy President Trump would do well to think about how....like Dobe Bryant....their life could be snuffed out tomorrow and what will it matter then if their President was impeached....AND especially is it not going to matter when their blind eyes are open to the demonic lie that their hatred was OK....but it will be eternally too late to not have to suffer the consequences of having bought the lie!

    President Trump doesn’t strike me as someone who is afraid of much, and I just can’t picture him trying to pressure Ukraine into investigating Biden because he is afraid Biden would beat him in 2020.

    I always viewed John Bolton as a patriot and a true American. I think he is working on joining the ranks of other betrayers. That would include Judas Iscariot, Quisling, Aldrich Ames, Benedict Arnold, the Rosenbergs, Brutus, and Jane Fonda. I am starting to second guess my judgement of character. I voted for the creep Romney and thought Paul Ryan was a honest , Midwest values individual. Wrong again.

    The liberals seem to have the incredible talent of causing the Conservatives to do their bidding. The liberals want witnesses. So, they find weak conservatives who will FALL for their tactics! I'm so ashamed of these weak anti-Trump Conservative senators. We FINALLY have a President who is FOR this country. These liberals must hate America - they are not for ANYTHING that will help make this country better! SO thankful for our President!!!

    REALITY CHECK

    PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS STARTED A POLITICAL MOVEMENT THAT IS SUPPORTED BY OVER HALF OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. A MOVEMENT THAT WILL DIE OUT WHEN HIS POLITICAL TIME IS UP. THIS POWERFUL ANTI-SWAMP, ANTI-COMMUNIST, ANTI-ONE WORLD GOV. MOVEMENT SHOULD BE ORGANIZED IN EVERY STATE, COUNTY AND CITY ACROSS THE NATION SO IT CAN CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IN IT'S FIGHT AGAINST LIBERAL, LEFT WING COMMUNIST THAT ARE DESTROYING OUR NATION. THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS WEAK COMPARED TO THE DEMOCRAT PARTY. THE DEMOCRATS ARE WELL ORGANIZED, WELL FUNDED AND IS DETERMINED TO TURN THIS NATION INTO A COMMUNIST GOV.. THEY FIGHT TO WIN AND THEY FIGHT DIRTY ON EVERY LEVEL AND THEY WILL WIN IF THE TRUMP POLITICAL MOVEMENT IS NOT TURNED INTO A WELL ORGANIZED PARTY THAT WILL FIGHT TO THE DEATH TO STOP THEM.
    MR. HUCKABEE YOU ARE IN A POSITION TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN. START ORGANIZING TODAY SO AMERICA CAN REMAIN A FREE NATION, UNDER GOD, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.

    THE UNITED NATIONS IS CONTROLLED BY 56 MUSLIM NATIONS AND ALL THE COMMUNIST NATIONS. THE U.N. HAS ALMOST COMPLETED ITS GOAL OF FORMING A ONE WORLD GOV.
    THE U.N. IS AT WAR WITH THE UNITED STATES AND IS USING IMMIGRANTS FROM SOUTH AMERICA TO INVADE THE U.S.
    WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES ARE AT WAR WITH THE UNITED NATIONS. THE U.N. PLANS TO DESTROY OUR NATION AND WAY OF LIFE AND REPLACE IT WITH A COMMUNIST/ISLAMIC STYLE GOV.
    GEORGE SOROS IS AT WAR WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND IS SPONSORING THE ILLEGAL WAVE OF IMMIGRANTS CROSSING THE SOUTHERN BORDER. ARREST SOROS AND SHUT DOWN HIS NGO’S.
    THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS BEEN TAKEN OVER BY THE COMMUNIST/ISLAMIC IDEOLOGY AND IS WORKING WITH THE U.N. TO DESTROY OUR NATION AND FORM A ONE WORLD GOV.
    WE ARE LOSING THE WAR AGAINST COMMUNISM AND ISLAMISM. THEY ARE HIGHLY ORGANIZED WHILE WE ARE FRAGMENTED AND DISORGANIZED. THEY ARE WINNING THE PROPAGANDA WAR.
    TO PUT THINGS IN HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE, THE FORCES OF FREEDOM ARE ONCE AGAIN DRIVEN BACK ONTO THE BEACHES OF DUNKIRK AND THE ONLY BOAT TO COME ACROSS THE CHANNEL TO RESCUE IS PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP.
    WE NEED A NATIONAL ORGANIZATON FOR THE ADVANCEMENT AND PROTECTION OF WESTERN CULTURE AND CIVILIZATION, NOAPWCC, WITH THE GOAL TO BECOME POLITICALLY AND FINANCIALLY POWERFUL ENOUGH TO USE LAW SUITS, BOYCOTTS, PROPAGANDA, AND DEMONSTRATIONS TO STOP THE COMMUNIST/ISLAMIC INVASION AND TO DESTROY IT COMPLETELY.
    THE NOAPWCC COULD MORPH INTO A NATION- WIDE MINUTE MAN ORG. IF OUR FREEDOM IS THREATENED.
    A LIST OF MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD’S ORGANIZATIONS WORKING TO UNDER MINE AMERICA AND THE FREE WORLD.

    The Muslim Brotherhood’s own Explanatory Memorandum (reprinted in full as Appendix II of this book) identifies the following groups under the heading “a list of our organizations and the organizations of our friends”[233] : · Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) · Muslim Student Association (MSA) · Muslim Communities Association (MCA) · Association of Muslim Social Scientists (AMSS) · Association of Muslim Scientists and Engineers (AMSE) · Islamic Medical Association (IMA) · Islamic Teaching Center (ITC) · North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) · Foundation for International Development (FID) · Islamic Housing Cooperative (IHC) · Islamic Centers Division (ICD) · American Trust Publications (ATP) · Audio-Visual Center (AVC) · Islamic Book Service (IBS) · Muslim Businessmen Association (MBA) · Muslim Youth of North America (MYNA) · ISNA Fiqh Committee (IFC) · ISNA Political Awareness Committee (IPAC) · Islamic Education Department (IED) · Muslim Arab Youth Association (MAYA)
    THE COMMUNIST DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS OVER 28 ORGANIZATIONS RUN BY DAVID BROCK’S SMEAR FRONTIER DEDICATED TO SMEARING ANY ONE WHO FIGHTS AGAINST THE LEFTWING DEMOCRATS. ADD TO THIS MOST OF THE MEDIA ARE COMMUNIST AND LIE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE 24 HOURS A DAY. ALL WE HAVE IS A VERY WEAK REPUBLICAN PARTY THAT IS READY TO COMPRIMISE AT ANY TIME. IT’S TIME TO OGRANIZE OR DIE!!
