Evening Edition - January 20

January 20, 2019

Friday, a massive crowd converged on Washington, DC, for the 46th annual March For Life.  If you weren’t able to attend or watch it, video of all the speakers can be streamed on the group’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/marchforlife/

The featured speaker was Ben Shapiro (who addressed perhaps the stupidest of all pro-choice arguments: demanding that pro-lifers say whether they would have aborted Baby Hitler).  Special kudos to Illinois Rep. Daniel Lipinski, sadly one of the few remaining pro-life Democrats in the House, who had the courage to stand up in public and address the March For Life.  And the big surprise was an appearance by Vice President Mike Pence, with a special message from President Trump.

To emphasize the complete about-face since the Obama years, Pence later tweeted some of the ways in which the Trump Administration has stood up to defend life, including appointing pro-life judges, ending the flow of government money to organizations that promote abortions overseas, and a rule change allowing states to deny Medicaid reimbursements to abortion providers.  Naturally, liberals and Planned Parenthood got a federal judge to block that rule change, but on Thursday, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the rule change. 

There are more March For Life events taking place this week around the nation.  For more information and to support the March For Life, visit their website at http://www.marchforlife.org and to find an event near you, see https://marchforlife.org/mfl-2019/local-march-for-life-events/

There are a lot of things about abortion that Planned Parenthood and other defenders of that barbaric procedure don’t want you to know.  That’s why they try to silence critics, prosecute undercover reporters, and hide what they do behind walls, feeble excuses and fuzzy euphemisms such as “reproductive health care” (a bizarre term indeed for “killing and dismembering your pre-born child.”)

At the link is a story about a little-known aspect of abortion clinics that deserves exposure.  It’s about the people who pose as helpful and caring patient aides, but are actually there to insure that the pregnant woman doesn’t think too deeply about what she’s about to do, the impact it will have on her for the rest of her life, and the possible life-saving alternatives, but just to make sure she gets in the door so they can run her credit card and abort her child as quickly as possible.  They’re known as the “escorts.”  But to those in the pro-life movement who try to offer women real help (those whose message they are paid to block), they are known as the “escorts of death.”

Warning: this story might make you feel anger and revulsion at just how low some members of the human race can sink.

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

I warned you yesterday that the story about Michael Cohen allegedly telling Robert Mueller that President Trump told him to lie to Congress should be taken with a big shaker of salt if listened to at all.  It was about an admitted perjurer and sleazeball lawyer and was based on unnamed sources in a story on Buzzfeed, the bottom-dwelling website with little or no journalistic integrity.  This is the site that printed the Steele Russian dossier full of unsubstantiated rumors about Trump when not even the most Trump-hating mainstream outlet would touch it with a ten-foot pair of tongs. 

Of course, history repeated itself: just as with the Steele dossier, once Buzzfeed threw the raw meat out there, Democratic politicians began citing it as reason for more investigations and impeachment proceedings, and major media outlets went wall-to-wall with it. They were certain that THIS time, they had Trump, just as Wile E. Coyote is certain that the arrival of each new useless Acme Co. gadget will spell the end of the Roadrunner.   And just like Wile E. Coyote, all the talking heads, politicians and Buzzfeed editors ended up falling flat on their faces.

The story raged all over the media for less than a day before Mueller’s office took the virtually unprecedented step of releasing a public statement branding the story as “not accurate.”  Buzzfeed and its crushed defenders used the understandable curtness of the statement to try to split hairs and suggest that maybe Mueller just meant some details weren’t accurate.  But more reputable reporters said that sources with knowledge of Mueller’s testimony denied that he told Mueller that Trump told him to lie to Congress, and Trump blasted it as “fake news.”

In fact, the deeper you look into the Buzzfeed story, the shakier it gets.

https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/319072/

So if you wondered why I devoted so little space to it yesterday when everyone else was going ballistic over it, it wasn’t bias on my part.  It was just because some stories, no matter how much of an airing they get, still give off the stench of overripe Limburger cheese. 

 

 

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

I don’t want to be mean, but sometimes, the jokes just write themselves.  Like when a “Democratic” Socialist revolutionary tries to create a dramatic confrontation on social media, and it turns into the scene from “This Is Spinal Tap” where the band gets lost trying to find their way to the stage.

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

According to a study by Pew Research, 58 percent of Americans feel that the news media simply don’t understand people like them.  Not surprisingly, among Republicans, that number zooms to 73%.  I’m kind of curious about who the quarter of Republicans are who think that Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews really “get where they’re coming from.”  You’d think they might have suspected the media were out of touch with their lives when they voted for a guy who promised to bring back blue collar jobs, enforce immigration laws and stop the government form persecuting them for their religious beliefs, and the media immediately branded them as white supremacists.

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/americans-speak-loud-clear-media-completely-touch/

This theme of NY/LA/DC Bubble Dwellers being clueless about what they derisively term “Flyover Country” (and the rest of us call “America”) is hardly new.  One year ago, conservative podcaster John Ekdahl tweeted that the three most popular vehicles in the US were all pickup trucks and simply asked how many journalists know anybody who owns one.  It triggered a furious meltdown among liberals who viciously attacked Ekdahl and his question, but few of whom could name anyone who owns a pickup truck.

http://thefederalist.com/2017/01/04/watch-bunch-journalists-freak-asked-know-anybody-drives-truck/

 

And of course, long before Pew, Ekdahl’s tweet or even Donald Trump entering the Presidential race, one amazingly prescient commentator wrote an entire book about how out of touch the elites of politics and the media were with the people they were supposed to represent/report on.  Tomorrow marks four years since that book was published, yet they’ve still learned nothing from it and are even more out of touch and locked in their echo chamber than ever. It's not too late for them to buy a copy.  Oh, and you can get one, too.

 --------------------------

I’m not going to say anything more today about a certain razor company’s ad that implied that the vast majority of men fall into one of two categories: sexist jerk pigs and oblivious doofuses who stand idly by, watching the sexist jerk pigs.  I think that company’s gotten enough publicity, even if much of it was deservedly negative. 

But I will give them credit for this: that ad so upset the founder and CEO of the Egard Watch Company that he decided to risk his business and the ire of the Twitter mobs, and defy all his cautious business advisers, by making his own ad about what a man is.  It’s at this link, along with his story about why he felt compelled to make it.  And even though it contains no commercial message at all, it sure does make me want to buy an Egard Watch.

    Last year, Paul Ryan issued a list of hundreds of agencies that are either redundant or unnecessary that billions of our taxpayer money
    is being wasted on. USE THAT FOR THE WALL PROJECT, and USE THAT TO CLEAN THE SWAMP!!!!!!!!! Time overdue to locate enough
    to reopen the Government. Declare a win, save taxpayers money, and prove the Democrats won't work securing our borders. Schumer
    apparently has a multi-billion dollar project that NY wants. Remind him.....! Right now many of bothmy Democrat and Republican friends
    have had enough government shut down!

    Boundaries & walls are Biblical as we go from the Book of Genesis through to the Book of Revelation!! It is God the Creator – the God of the Bible Himself who established national boundaries – who ordained nations, peoples, tribes, clans, etc., and not man!! In Deuteronomy 32:8-9, it reads,
    “When the Most-High divided to the nations their inheritance, when He separated the sons of Adam, He set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel. For the LORD's portion is His People; Jacob is the lot of His inheritance” – [KJV]
    And, in Acts 17:24a, 26,
    “God that made the world and all things therein, … hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, …” [KJV] {“God made the world and everything in it … from one man He made all nations … marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.” – [NIV]}
    There are Walls in Heaven to keep certain categories of people out which are even quite high – as high as about 65.84 meters!! How about that! Garden of Eden had an enclosure for how else the Bible would say that after expelling Adam & Eve from the Garden, God placed a Cherubim with flaming swords at its Entrance (located on its East side) to keep them from re-entering the Garden? Genesis 3:24. It’s obvious that the Garden had only one entrance unlike the Heavenly Jerusalem with altogether 12 gates with 3 on each of the 4 sides of the City!!
    Few more Scriptures on national boundaries - Genesis 10:5, 20, 31-32; 11:8; 4:19; 23:4; Daniel 3:26; 4:17; 24-5, 32, 34-35; 5:18, 21. Can’t list them all here. Guess what kind of people are barred from entering through these walls? 1 Cor 6:9-10; Gal 5:19-21; Eph 5:5; 1 Tim 1:9-10; Heb 12:14; Rev 20:15; 21:8, 27; 22:15. Time and space won’t let me list every wall that’s mentioned in the Bible, except for the 2 – the Walls of Jericho and the Walls of Jerusalem. The rest, I’ll have to let you find out for yourselves!
    Seeing from these examples that walls are perfectly moral and legal to keep lawless, unwanted, unsavoury, criminal characters out of Heaven and Eden, which God Himself is responsible for, how can Pelosi, Schumer and the rest of the Democrats say that walls are immoral and illegal? PELOSI-SCHUMER-DEMOCRATS ARE THE ONES WHO ARE IMMORAL, AMORAL, OBSTINATE, OBSTRUCTIVE AND DESTRUCTIVE!! If walls are immoral, then the Pelosies & Schumers of the Democratic party shouldn’t be having walls around THEIR palaces & properties! Tear them down!

    I find it amazing that the good people have stayed good during the last 2 and half years of media blasting of Christians, Men, White Men, White people, The Peoples President, Almost all people saying that the Country is racist on too many different fronts its seems no one is exempt. Our society has words that demean people and it asks we don't use them I would like to have the word racist not used the media has most people grouped racist and maybe we are. If so lets not use the word. I look at people or a person and I say I don't like him or her because of how they look! NO, I make a decision on how they act. Make a decision on the action if U see a person stealing he is a thief, no matter what it looks like, The media wants all of us in groups , that makes it easier for them to control what they want U to see and hear. Take the 2 issues U may have heard with Buzzfeed and the Native American and his drum taunting a high school kid wearing a mega hat, are U starting to get the Fake News concept yet? Huck U may not like this comment however my message to Americans stay away from main stream media as much as u can check in 3 times a week use your time go watch a HS game or a college game get away from the TV it is POSION!!!!! The media can not have a bit of trust left all is left, a propaganda outlet to sell socialism ,communist ideas they wish to make America Worthless. Older people get out and watch America's kids play sports or watch them in the theater they need our help encourage them how to do things right the message they are getting is hurting them. Join me support our kids, Thank you

    For a pretty concise recommendation of traits to be included in proper male ( and female, but it was written to his son ), read Kipling's " If ". You might also find Jethro Tull's lyrics to " Wind Up " somewhat enlightening along the
    " recommended behaviors " perspective - even to / for...Christians ;-}

    I look forward to your "Evening Edition" each day and find each one interesting. I'm not much one for "commenting" but the Egard Watch piece prompted me to thank you for your daily recaps and comments. I hadn't seen this coverage on any other news source. You always share news and information that peaks my interest. Thank you, Sir! I didn't fully appreciate you when you were Governor of our great state until I heard you speak at our daughter's UAMS graduation ceremony. I've been a fan ever since! And I LOVE your daughter Sarah! Please tell her to keep strong. May God bless you and your family.

    I don't understand why Planned Parenthood has to get Federal Funds. I am a certified Nurse Midwife. I have saved many an unborn baby by helping to see another way. Many of the women I delivered were so happy that they didn't lose this child. Planned Parenthood takes all insurance and takes a sliding scale if they don't have insurance. Also, they do not do follow up care. They send them back to me, sometimes bleeding from the RU486 pills. I can't tell you how many of these girls come back crying to me. If you tell them the true mission of Sanger and her Eugenics, they are shocked. Most of my ladies are black. Somewhere along the line, society has created disposable people. It seems that the Nazis and the Eugenics program did their job well.

    Mike, The article by the CEO of the Egard Watch company was GREAT and very much appreciated. Why does everyone need to try to berate the male gender in totality. Yes there are some males that are "toxic" and deserve the handle. Additionally, there are some women who are just as "toxic" but we are not supposed to bring that up, are we. Thanks for caring the article. I pray it get more men involved in being "Gentlemen"

    I think informed consent legislation has passed the courts' scrutiny in Arkansas. It requires that the "customer" be given 48 hours before paying a dime to be informed about the complications that may occur during an abortion, to be informed of other options, to see the ultrasound. Another bill is to insist that a clinic which provides abortions have to have a doctor with admitting privileges to a hospital in case there are complications. Another assures that the same inspections for any hospital must be performed in clinics which perform abortions. Cut off Planned Parenthood where it matters to them - their pocket book. Then even Nancy Pelosi will become a traitor to her cause. Cecile has already quit, and the young Chinese doctor, Dr. Wen, who took her place doesn't seem aware of real science. She's just a pawn.

    I have looked for the loophole in Mueller's Press release as NOT ACCURATE and I'm confused about what part was not accurate? Seems to me it was a Shut Up Memo - Final ammunition for Impeachment to follow and you fools are messing with my ability to coerce witnesses to compose.
    As usual a thoughtful article that accomplishes what I attempt to convey to my Grand Children- Listen, Read, Learn and Question everything, especially from Google, Twitter and Facebook. Go to Bing and page 15 for an unbiased click opinion.

    Good evening! My wife and I saw Nancy Pelosi had recommended postponing the State of the Union Address - because the furloughing of secret service and security personnel meant she couldn't guarantee their safety at the Capital Building. My wife noted that perhaps Pelosi would feel safer if the speech was held some night at the US-Mexico border, where there is no wall, because it "really is safe".

    While I appreciate your take on the present political scene I believe that the only answer to all of the problems of today are found in the person of Jesus Christ!!! We need to know what is going on in our world I believe that we need to spend our time presenting the word of God which is the only place that we will find answers for our lives. We will never find answers for life outside of God's word. I find that my time is better spent in learning what the Lord has to say.

    The Wall. It must be a real wall as was the Great Wall of China and is the Israeli wall between Jerusalem and Bethlehem. A fence of any kind will not do whether woven of barbed wire or made of parallel steel slats.

    The Federal workers who have not been working should not be given "back pay" as Trump said in his address yesterday. That is reason enough not to vote for him again! Trump seems to be slipping into the slime of the DC Swamp, emoting instead of thinking. Many think that many Federal workers don't work even when they do go to work, and many in roles that should not exist. The "SHUTDOWN" is a blessing and will help us erase the Federal deficit!!! Is that the "Art of the Deal", to pay for no work???

    Apparently the democrat party takes the Schick commercial on masculinity seriously. They've started their campaign to eliminate masculinity in American in the democratic caucus in the house.

    I surely hope as soon as the thirty days are up, all deptments ditch the socialist obstructionist non working people in our government. Permanent furlough. Only about 25% are actually working. The rest plan weekends, vacations, slow walk or do not implement D.Trumps executive orders. The working ones try to undo this this and move the President's agenda along. Perfect time to DRAIN THE SWAMP!!!!!
