Evening Edition - January 31

January 31, 2020

Yesterday, Schiff said he wouldn't "dignify with an answer" a question based on a newspaper report that "smeared" his staff. But he just read aloud from a newspaper report in this morning's NYT that smeared the President. That confirms it: the NYT is not a newspaper.

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

Today is Brexit Day, the day that Great Britain officially exits the European Union, a decisive Parliamentary vote having come after British voters told the snotty elites who mocked the Brexit backers as knuckle-draggers (you know, the way Don Lemon looks at Trump voters) that they wanted out of the EU. It took a second election to drive the point across to them in no uncertain terms. Say, which side is supposed to be dense again?

For those who haven’t been following this story, here’s an overview.

https://www.foxnews.com/world/brexit-day-britain-leaves-european-union

Even if you aren’t interested in UK politics, it’s a fascinating piece of a larger, worldwide story: nations reclaiming their independence as they reject pompous globalists, oppressive big-government policies and failed “one world government” pipe dreams.

The British chattering classes who wanted to stay under the thumbs of the unelected EU bureaucrats loved to mock the leavers by sneering that they dreamed of exiting the EU waving little Union Jack flags. And in a delicious “in your face” gesture, after casting the definitive “leave” vote, that’s exactly what they did: they waved little Union Jack flags.

There’s even a movement now to make it illegal to fly an EU flag in the UK, which might be taking it too far, but the sentiment is understandable. After all, we don’t fly British Union Jack flags in the US, except as backdrops at Herman’s Hermits concerts

Those who opposed leaving the EU have spent years spinning scare stories about the economic disaster that will ensue and that Britain might not survive (although it somehow survived for centuries before the EU was even invented.) Pardon me, but I’ve heard these dire warnings from leftist elitists before. Remember how global stock markets were never going to recover from Trump’s election? We also heard that Brazil would face disaster after electing a Trump-inspired populist President, but their economy is now up while crime and corruption are down.

Kudos to Reuters, though, for reporting that major piece of narrative-busting news and still managing to work in a reference to Nazis by the second paragraph.

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

At the link, Mark Davis examines Chief Justice Roberts’ refusal to read Sen. Rand Paul’s question about the so-called “whistleblower” and how it reflects Roberts’ general unwillingness to tackle tough decisions.

https://townhall.com/columnists/markdavis/2020/01/31/impeachment-diary-day-9-the-whistleblower-scam-and-the-john-roberts-problem-n2560451

It’s this kind of unwillingness to make a decision that might have political implications that led Roberts to yank a bogus justification for Obama’s unconstitutional individual mandate out of thin air, and it could spell trouble in the near future, with the SCOTUS facing a number of controversial cases on issues such as abortion and religious liberty.

Roberts’ judicial philosophy has been described as the belief that if the Representatives of the people (Congress) pass a law, that must mean the people want it, so it’s his job to find a way to justify that law under the Constitution. Frankly, that view horrifies me.

For the record, it’s the job of the Supreme Court to protect the Constitution from the state, not to protect the state from the Constitution.

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

There are so many ways in which the term “progressive” is the biggest misnomer of the 21st century, but one that doesn’t get enough attention is how “progressive” politicians are turning the places where they’re in charge into dangerous, crime-ridden hellholes.

Think I’m overstating the case? I already told you about the uproar over New York’s new law that releases repeat offenders on no bail. One kept robbing one bank after another and actually told the officials as they were releasing him that he couldn’t believe they were letting him go (you and me both, Bud!) We’ve seen violent offenders commit additional assaults immediately after being released. And if you think that’s as crazy as it can get, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

Six people were recently arrested in the Bronx on suspicion of drug dealing. In one small apartment, they had 750,000 envelopes full of heroin and fentanyl valued at $7 million, ready for distribution though New York and New England. And all six were just released on no bail.

https://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/featured/1827388/insanity-bronx-drug-dealers-arrested-with-7-million-in-fentanyl-released-without-bail-crime-rises-in-nyc.html

So, you think that’s as crazy as it can get? Well, the Iowa Attorney General’s office (under Tom Miller, a Democrat, needless to say) just told New York, “Hold muh beer and watch this!” They announced that six-foot, 210-pound Joseph Matthew Smith, a convicted baby rapist and pedophile who has reportedly molested up to 15 children ages 1-15, will be released from prison. Why? Because he’s undergone hormone treatments prior to gender reassignment surgery and now goes by the name “Josie.” Since the hormones supposedly lowered his testosterone levels, and hence his sexual aggression, he/she is now deemed to no longer pose a threat of reoffending.

https://www.westernjournal.com/iowa-release-child-sex-abuser-declares-no-longer-threat-due-gender-transition/

While it’s true that the less charming name for the procedure (“chemical castration”) has been shown to reduce sexual aggression, what about the fact that he’s only been in prison since 2015? Look back at what I told you he did because I don’t even want to have to type it again.

Across America, wherever cities or states have been in the hands of the most liberal politicians for the longest time, the citizens are suffering from the worst (and worsening) crime, thanks precisely to so-called “progressive” policies that are anything but. And bear in mind, when you see the rising crime stats in these places, they are likely vastly understated because those are just the crimes reported to the police. Why should victims even bother calling the police when they know nothing will be done, or even if there is an arrest, the criminals will be back on the street the next day? And I haven’t even gone into the “sanctuary cities” and states that routinely release illegal immigrants with criminal records to save them from being deported.

The only way “progressive” politicians ever reduce crime rates is by making crime legal. I fail to see how a return to lawless barbarism is any more “progressive” than trying to revive the unmourned corpse of socialism.

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

In what I can only assume is one of those “mainstream media helping rescue the Democrats” editorial decisions, the Washington Post obtained and published an internal memo from the Bernie Sanders campaign. It’s a long, long, looooong list of executive orders Bernie would likely sign right away to undo everything Trump has done to get the country back on the right track.

You name the issue, and Bernie will order his leftist view into law with his magic pen: raising the minimum wage, removing laws against pot and abortion, letting in more refugees, halting border wall construction, banning fracking and even the export of domestically-produced oil (which would be a godsend for Russia, but hey: it’s Bernie “Honeymoon in Moscow” Sanders), declaring “climate change” a national emergency, etc. etc. Banning guns isn’t mentioned, but I have to assume it’s in there somewhere. No word on whether he’d order new infrastructure that would include building those gulags his campaign workers are dreaming about.

https://www.westernjournal.com/hardly-recognize-america-bernies-first-executive-orders-report/

This is no surprise, really, since it fits perfectly with the leftist mindset of the “benevolent” ”Big Brother” government directing every aspect of our lives. For another example, Sen. Ted Cruz blasted Elizabeth Warren’s plans to issue a flurry of radical executive orders, specifically forgiving all student loan debt. Cruz tweeted, “Which clause of the Constitution gives a President the authority to give away a trillion $ w/o Congress?" (Congress is supposed to be the branch that actually passes budgets and allocates spending, but then, Congress is also supposed to be the branch that makes laws and ratifies treaties, and Democrats didn’t seem to care about that during the Obama Administration, either.)

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/ted-cruz-warren-student-loans-dictator

Well, we can’t be too hard on the Democrats for dreaming about remaking America into a socialist utopia by the stroke of their mighty pens in full defiance of the Constitution and even the will of the people. After all, it’s necessary to undo everything Trump has done because (repeat it with me now), “Trump is a dictator!”

    Now that the U.K. has regained its rightful and historic place as an independent nation again, wouldn't it be a great gesture and good business to extend a trade agreement to them connecting to the USMCA, therefore making a free trading block of 4 great nations, benefitting all their citizens. Trump could do it.

    Mike:
    Thank God we have God to divinely intervene on our behalf to keep all this demoncratic insanity from ever coming to pass. What will all the liberal Democrats do when Trump is re-elected in November? Let's hope they all leave the country and maybe move to Venezuala where they should feel right at home, especially Bernie and Elizabeth. Since they want a socialist, dictatorial big government country to live in, Maduro will welcome them with open arms, then make them subservient to him.

    §President Trump must be acquitted immediately. Agreeing with Democrats to bring in witness- es is equivalent to acclaiming & acknowledging the legitimacy & Constitutionality to/of their sham House Intelligent Committee/ Judiciary Committee impeachment hearings & their vote to the 2 articles of impeachment of the President while in truth & reality, they’re all just illegitimate & un-Constitutional!! It would also forever stamp the Senate & the Republicans as entities of no consequence without any legitimate power while the Democrats dominating the House, the Senate & the Republicans. §We should kick out Schiff, Nadler, Waters, Pelosi & Schumer from Congress. They think they’re above the Law & can do all unlawful stuff; they lie as they please; shred the Constitution & subvert the government in subtle ways and bring it down! Schiff/Nadler & company shouldn’t be the Managers being so biased clearly involved with whistle blower & other traitorous activities! They’re projecting their intent to do, what they’re really doing or going to do on to the President & the Republicans, blaming them when in fact they’re the ones who are guilty – they’re the perpetrators! Sue them! Indict them! If we listen carefully to their blame game, we can truly learn what they’re doing & what their intentions are! §I strongly feel that the present Republican Party must be disbanded & start a brand-new Party with stronger & deeper Godly Conservative convictions & purpose like the “TRUMP MOVEMENT” as they seem to me at present to be weak & not resolute nor as committed as the Democrats. Many vote Republican, only because of Trump, including me. I don’t know what I’ll do after Trump Presidency. I can never be a Democrat or a Liberal. §I’m not happy about the blasé attitude of half of the Republicans on the Hill & the snake-in-the-grass-traitor-like past & present personalities such as Rosenberg, Mueller, Christopher Wray, Comey, Sessions, McCain, Romney, Paul Ryan, Collins, & others. Romney is McCain’s replacement! This is my assessment so far. Rand Paul & Murkowski just barely missed the list. I do apologize if I’m wrong. §Believe me, I do pray that the Lord would change them & give them good sense. However, at the same time, I also pray that He would cause all of Dem’s plans to turn to foolishness & dust; they themselves to fall into the pits they’ve dug for others causing them to turn to Him. §“Chief Justice” Roberts isn’t fit for that position clearly proving his ineligibility by his stance on Obama Care Individual Mandate & refusing to read Rand Paul’s question at the Senate Trial. He has no sense of righteousness & justice a true judge should have! Plus, he’s a coward!

    An important aspect of the impeachment process as set out in the Constitution is being ignored. It is clear that the intended role of The House is to decide whether to initiate the process and, if so, to investigate and prepare a formal presentation of their findings. In effect the role of The House is to act as the prosecution with The Senate then acting as a jury to decide guilt or innocence. The attempt by the Democrats to force the Senate to call new witnesses and in effect conduct another investigation is improper in three respects. It would shift a difficult and contentious portion of their responsibility onto The Senate. It would also constitute a double jeopardy and would seriously impair the attention of the entire Congress for weeks regarding multiple other important issues. If the case presented by The House is too weak to be upheld on its own evidence, it should simply be dismissed. Holding a second trial before the outcome of the first is even decided is surely not what was intended in The Constitution.

    john Roberts is gonna be a continuing problem. Someone needs to have a long, blunt talk with him and find out who is black mailing him or threatening his family and they need to be dealt with in the harshest terms possible. and the left cannot name one act that makes him a dictator. Our sworn enemy is NOT Iran, it's the left and we need to man up and treat them like the domestic enemy the constitutions talks about. that is the choice. Communist totalitarianism or the republic

    Student debt forgiveness is a flawed idea just as tuition free college education is. Student debt really came to be life altering when the government took over the student loan business, banning banks from issuing them, eliminating marketplace competition entirely. Maxine Waters apparently didn’t realize this, of course, when she grilled banking industry executives who had to clarify for her that they were no longer in the student loan business and hadn’t been since the government took it over under President Obama. What happened as a result? Tuition skyrocketed with guaranteed government payment of tuition fees. What’s astounding is that government student loans issued during the height of the recession had interest rates of 3+%, higher than the Fed’s prolonged zero interest rate. In addition, student loan debt cannot be washed away through bankruptcy as other types of debt can. Unpaid loan debt with 3+% interest grows dramatically and quickly. Did colleges and universities provide educational pathways to real jobs after graduation? No! Prospects of employment upon graduation were bleak given study paths that did not fit the job market, had no marketability in reality. Four year programs somehow became five year programs (due to limited availability of classes) which = another year of tuition ($$$) paid to overpriced colleges and universities. Many students dropped out short of graduation facing loan paybacks as they scrambled for employment ….. any job would do. One young college graduate in our area shared with us that she gave up working altogether and went on welfare which afforded more to her financially than the two job routine she had pursued to barely make ends meet. The government should get out of the student loan business and banks should get back in. If forgiveness is to be considered, it should be with regard to retroactively waving all interest on government issued student loans so that the student is responsible for paying back the dollar amount borrowed and no more. That could be President Trump’s “subsidy” to students in pursuit of higher education. Paying back the dollar amount borrowed should be the student’s responsibility. There is pride in paying one’s debt and valuable lessons learned in doing so. Getting something for nothing is not the way to go.

    Turning the sound off every time Democrat House Managers open their mouths has become
    a natural reflex of mine. It is the only way I can handle the anger their lies and distortions of
    the real facts burn within me. I thought after the vote on witnesses and more documentation was defeated, they would immediately go for the vote to acquit, but NO. They lost their momentum of striking when the griddle is hot. There is no telling what lies and media pressure of "news with unnamed sources" will flood cable news and regular stations between now and Wednesday. It is Kavanaugh hearings all over again.
    The simple solutions are never used by our government. And people want to hand over our
    health care to the government? Common sense and expediency died many years ago.
    They use the term progressive and leave off the word that should follow...evil.

    Thank you, Dear Mike Huckabee, for your excellent and witty spirit full of knowledge and wisdom and Christ, as it seems to me. I gain real insight from you because I trust you. Every article you write is a triumph over the diseased state of mind of so many Americans who know not what they do, or what they are. Learning is done by growing and you are growing so much good with all the learning you engender. Thank you for the cheer you bring, with light and salt!
    There's a terrific PR wave coming on, following after after the wave of PC, which must not distract us from making the election sure -- from voting machine to news - without fakery, deceit, and theft of our voice, our rights, our cause of liberty and justice for all. We must, as Lincoln said, not want God on our side but seek to be on God's side. It is strategic to proceed in ways in which the object is not, to defeat the enemy, but to attain victory - shifting focus to the good and away from the bad. We will not defeat the Democrats by felony, slander and calumny but by being cunning and harmless in the spirit of the Truth. I thank God for raising up many to join and to lead in committing our course to God Almighty. I thank God for you. We love you! Phebe and Tamás Pécs, Astoria, Queens, NYC

    Hi Mike,
    You said this in tonight's Evening Edition: "After all, we don’t fly British Union Jack flags in the US, except as backdrops at Herman’s Hermits concerts".
    My husband was born and raised in Birmingham, England and is a "Brummie". He's lived here since 1981and, out of respect for that, we fly both the American flag AND the Union Jack every day!
    I love your newsletter and read both editions, every day. Thank you for keeping it all real and giving us the truth! Trump 2020!!
