Evening Edition - October 19

October 19, 2019

This week, after her staged exit in a huff from a White House meeting on Syria, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused President Trump of having a mental “meltdown.”  Funny, he seemed lucid enough to speak for nearly 90 minutes to about 50,000 people in Dallas shortly afterward.  I guess unlike the House Democratic leadership, his insanity is intermittent.

I only bring that up because if you want to see what a real mental meltdown looks like, look no further than the woman who still believes she was the winner of the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton.  Hillary is on another book tour, and in between dropping broad hints about how much the Democrats need her to run again (that might be proof of insanity right there), she floated what I estimate to be her 894th excuse for not being in the Oval Office today: she was a victim of 10-year-old hackers.

https://www.redstate.com/alexparker/2019/10/18/hillary-plops-another-robbed-rightful-presidency-hacking-10-year-old-children/

As Ed Driscoll of Instapundit put it, Hillary has morphed into a “Scooby-Doo” villain: “And I would’ve gotten away with it, if it hadn’t been for you meddling kids!”

But blaming her defeat on children with laptops was actually the second-craziest thing Hillary said this week.  The first hearkened back to her original excuse for losing: the Russians.  In an interview, Hillary implied that Hawaiian Rep. and Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard is a “Russian asset,” and part of a Russian scheme to reelect Trump by having her run as a third party candidate and split the Democratic vote.

This isn’t the first time Gabbard has come under fire from the left.  That bastion of serious journalism, CNN, called her “a puppet for the Russian government,” while the New York Times claimed that Russian bots are boosting her and that “alt-right internet stars, white nationalists, libertarian activists and some of the biggest boosters of Mr. Trump heap praise on Ms. Gabbard.”

(Full disclosure: I’ve said some positive things about Rep. Gabbard – not “Ms,” but “Rep.” Why the disrespect for women Congress members, NY Times? – but not because I’m getting a paycheck from Putin.  It’s because, while I disagree strongly with her on a number of issues, at least on some things, I respect her as a veteran and an independent thinker, and she’s often the only person at the Dem debates who argues for common sense and isn’t a complete barking loon.  As I often point out, this is why the DNC is trying so hard to keep her off-stage.)

Mark down the date because the Times was actually right about one thing: Gabbard is like Trump in that she fights back.  Her Twitter response to Hillary’s crazy attack on her was epic, and it hit the news like an atomic bomb.  Nobody on the left ever dares to stand up and tell Hillary the truth about herself to her face, but Gabbard brought out the rhetorical bazooka, calling her “the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long.”  (More at the link)

Being confronted with the ugly truth is a new thing for Hillary, and she apparently isn't taking it well.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/hillary-clinton-tulsi-gabbard-dc-fortune-women-summit

It is astounding to hear Hillary, who spent millions on anti-Trump rumors from shady Russian sources that cost taxpayers millions more to investigate, accuse anyone else of being in cahoots with Russians to try to influence a Presidential election.  But self-reflection is not her strong suit, to say the least. 

If anything good comes out of the Democratic primary race, maybe the blinders are finally falling off of Tulsi Gabbard, Marianne Williamson and millions of disillusioned mainstream Democrat voters. Let’s hope they will realize what their party has become, take it back from the corrupt establishment and the totalitarian far-left radicals, and once again restore the healthy two-party system.  In fact, if Gabbard does run as a third party candidate, she should claim “Democrat” as her party, since whoever is likely to get the official Democratic nomination in 2020 will be closer to a cross between the Socialist Party and Britain’s Monster Raving Loony Party.

A little weekend fun: Neiman Marcus released its new Christmas catalog of mind-bogglingly opulent gifts. 

https://www.forbes.com/sites/jimdobson/2019/10/17/neiman-marcus-christmas-catalog-12-extravagant-fantasy-gifts-for-2019/#213d78fa3768

This year’s gifts are actually a bit more budget-conscious than in previous years, with none costing over $1 million.  For instance, you can give someone an Aston Martin sports car custom-designed by “James Bond” star Daniel Craig for only $700,007 (get it?)  $575,000 buys you a world tour to five cool destinations by private jet (the perfect gift for Al Gore.)  For just $200,000, you can get a trip to Italy for an “extreme food lover VIP tour” (that’s okay, my neighborhood pizza place delivers.)  For $70,000, you can give your pooch a luxury dog house resembling the Taj Mahal, designed by Rock Star Puppy and actress Denise Richards (and your dog will still climb into bed with you.)  For those on a really tight budget, a champagne vending machine is only $35,000.

But here's something a bit more realistic: “inflatable snowmobiles” (really just blow-up sleds) are 99 bucks each.  If any of my grandkids expect a gift from Neiman’s, this is probably the only thing they’ll get.  Maybe one, and they all have to share it. 

Or better yet, I’ll just give them the catalog and let them dream about having all that stuff, the way I used to with the Sears Wish Book.

    After hearing and seeing Rep. Tulsi Gabbard tell the truth to Hillary Clinton I have great admiration for her. I am a devout Republican, but I have gained a whole new found respect for Rep. Gabbard. And I think the Republicans should learn a lesson from her and start standing up and saying what needs to be said to all these corrupt despicable Democrats and the list is very long. Now either the majority of Republicans say nothing or if they do say anything it doesn't make the mainstream media. But even if that is the case, so many of them need to be more like Rep. Gabbard and start telling Democrats the way it is and expose them for what they are !!!!!

    Man it sure takes some people a long time to see reality ! I'm not a SEER but I saw insanity years ago. Guess I spent too much time working all over the world around some really unspooled individuals.

    A comment on Ms Pelosi's brother's passing--
    Sad for the family--always a loss is emotional and reflective--
    Now we find this person is the benefactor of the father--some may call it a dynasty-be that as it may--so the sister is beating up the trump clan(no pounding on the clinton clan at all) just the trump family---look to your upbringing lady, and the Hippocracy you spout.

    Here is a really wild conspiracy theory for you---
    gabbard is secretly in cahoots with the clinton foundation. hilary attacks, gabbard fires back and is seen as the underdog here and is being dissed by the crooked clinton machine-which cannot mount any serious challenge against trump. gabbard's popularity surges--to the point she may be able to successfully challenge trump- gabbard wins, but is a puppet of the foundation--hilary wins in the trenches and keeps her foothold on the workings of our system.---the American people are screwed. End of current story.

    Thank you Ms Gabbard for the definitive assessment of this subhuman.

    My problem is all this crap pales in comparison to what this person(and her boss) did to our citizens in Bengazi---those people DIED!------They DIED! --because this so called head of state could not admit she failed, and then she and her boss lied about it!---
    Why is this person not facing homicide charges?

    this gabbard thing, doesn't it show the REAL desperation of the left? With zero proof as usual, they (kilary) make wild assertions. TSD level 6?She and Marianne are the only ones who voice sane policy. they seem to be the only ones who have a grasp of Econ 101. Yes and we can call her Mrs. ?:)LIke you i am counting on the blinders coming off a TON of democrats so they see their party is NOT FOR them but against them and FOR everyone else.! When in the debates has ANYONE of the left said ANYTHING that is in favor of democrats who are US citizens? I haven't heard of one, not from you, rush, Laura, Tucker,, Sean, Mark Levin or the X22 report. All I hear from the left is utter destruction of the US in every way possible. E-e-e-e-k!

    For myself two words are the metaphor that led me not to vote for Hillary and her entire party.
    " REMEMBER BENGHAZI " ( it's now the bumper sticker on my car ).
    Hillary, Nancy and Chuck are the best thing that has helped the Republican Party.
    Oops I went over two words, kinda boxed myself in with just two words.

    This is not a war with women Looking at Clinton Pelosi Omar Brazile Talib Watters Schiff he qualifies Madoff these people have their agenda, however the difficulty I have with these people they cannot sell their point of view in a civilize way. They rant and howl, stamp their feet, the lack of superior intelligence has escaped them the emotions of not getting their way turns to Hate screaming and if they were in the jungle they probably would use violence; oh wait thats what their supporters do for them; uncontrollable emotions drive them. Not what leadership needs of them these are our nation's section of mean girls, irrational spoiled (Rotten) women not capable of leadership roles Oh by the girls you have a very close species that mirror you in Congress they are SO CALLED MEN different by body parts only same mind set and emotions. Can you say 8% approval rating!!!! Thats why you are called the DO NOTHING CONGRESS! THATS ALL YOU DO.

    Oh Gov. have the inmates taken over the asylum? I almost feel sorry for Hillary that she goes after a veteran is she for real? This whole book tour is to let her speak out and keep on tearing down Trump. She is no happy Christian she is mean. I can see why her husband strayed and have felt kind of sorry for him. Gabbard is strong and she is saying what we all think about this woman why I never would vote for her. CNN also attacked per Russians? I missed the whole children and laptops blaming them. Say go see Van Jones special he did after she lost? Did you see this? He went across the country he was shocked and could not believe how or why? Tell all who question to see this. People all over said they liked his idea on JOBS again like in Ohio he talked to steel workers who lost good paying jobs came back. Coal miners in Pa jobs back. Re building our military and try not to fight all these wars. One that I really noticed was a black minister in Flint area of Mich. Van asked why he did not support her he said that she nor none of her workers ever came to him for help in his area. Yet we hear she won by 3 mill votes but take liberal Calif and New York and for sure she did? Said the other day on the news that over half of Californians would like to leave if they could per jobs and homes? I know per two friends who live there one in the N and one in the S he grew up there and was in the military so upset over his state. So these people were to decide on what the rest of this country wanted? NO! You are so busy per doing this and keeping us informed I send off many of your messages? Doing your TBN show that makes my weekend. Take care

    Mike there isn't a person on the Democrats stage that is worth voting for or qualified to be President in my book.
    I don't watch the nonsense that they stand up there and chatter about, they talk nothing of importance. I don't watch the debated, I wouldn't waste my electric on them. I see what Fox news puts out there about the debates and it is a sorry state that our country is in for any of them to be President. As I see it Trump has this election in the bag. there is just no other way.
    I personally think all of these people are running because they get to keep the money that they raise, that is my belief and I feel that, that money should go to the wounded veterans. That would be a good cause.

    good day, Gov.
    someone needs to explain to me why the Russians would've wanted Trump over Clinton!
    was it not Clinton who sold 20% of our uranium supply? i don't get it!
    maybe they tried to discredit and defame him to such a point that Clinton would win the election by a landslide!

    I look forward to reading your evening edition every day. Mike, you are the voice of reason and truth in a world that has been turned upside down by the corrupt Democratic Party and media. I also praise your daughter for her wisdom and spunk! Loved your comment tonight about the Sears Wishbook....brought back lots of childhood memories. Please continue to share God’s love and message to a nation that so desperately needs guidance. Thank you!

    I never knew 10 year-olds were a major voting block! WOW! HRC is just full of the curious factoids never before known to the populous. Too bad her memory failed so badly in her Senate and FBI questioning!
