Evening Edition - February 24

President Trump and the First Lady are visiting India, where he received a very warm welcome in the way he enjoys most: at a rally in a packed soccer stadium that held about 110,000 people. For more details and some incredible photos, click the link.

It seems a bit odd that a Party whose frontrunner is a socialist who honeymooned in Moscow and praised Soviet breadlines should be trying to gin up another “red scare” about Russia. But non-Bernie Bro Democrats are so discombobulated that they’re trying to resurrect their 2016 “Russian collusion” narrative and can’t even decide which candidate they think Putin is helping.

In the same breath, they’ll claim that Russia is using social media to help Trump, then claim Russia is trying to help Bernie, then claim they’re trying to help Bernie because he would be easier for Trump to beat, so helping Bernie actually helps Trump which helps Russia (are you following this? It’s like listening to your grandmother explain the plot of her favorite soap opera.)

None of this explains why Russia would prefer Trump (who’s put sanctions on Russia, given weapons to Ukraine to fight them, bombed their troops in Syria, and cratered their oil industry profits) over Bernie “Honeymoon in Moscow” Sanders.

Roger Kimbell has some choice words about what an unintentional comedy this all is:

https://www.theepochtimes.com/media-serves-up-comedy-in-effort-to-get-trump_3248010.html

And does anyone seriously think some shenanigans by Russia on Facebook would have any real impact on an election in which over 130 million Americans vote? I like what comedian Joe Machi said on Greg Gutfeld’s show, that nobody goes on Facebook to have their minds changed about politics. You go on Facebook to say mean things about people who disagree with you, then look at “guilty dog” photos.

But not to be left out, Joe Biden is claiming that he’s the latest victim of Russian interference via Facebook.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/biden-russian-bots-facebook-bernie-sanders

Biden also complained that the Trump Administration didn’t brief his campaign about alleged Russian targeting of them. You mean the way the Obama-Biden Administration reacted to claims of “Russian collusion” by not telling candidate Trump and instead trying to use it as a pretext to spy on his campaign, undermine his Administration and send his associates to prison? Be happy they didn’t react the way Obama did.

As for the rest of Biden’s complaints about “Russia, Russia, Russia”: Crimea river, Joe.

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

Pot, Meet Kettle: While Elizabeth Warren was blasting Mike Bloomberg for having female employees sign non-disclosure agreements, the Democratic Party was trying to keep the media from learning about any potential disasters in the Nevada Caucuses by requiring volunteers to sign…non-disclosure agreements!

https://www.westernjournal.com/bernies-win-nevada-caucuses-rocky-start-democrats-telling-volunteers-not-talk-media/

Okay, I said I wasn’t going to run all of these “foaming-at-the-mouth leftists attack innocent Trump supporters” stories every day because there are so many of them, it would be all we ever got done. But to that anonymous Internet commenter who started this by claiming that most politically-motivated violence was perpetrated by people on the right, I can’t help adding this one.

https://www.westernjournal.com/couple-charged-felony-allegedly-running-boys-bikes-trump-flags-off-road/

Two details worth highlighting: there have been about 400 politically-motivated violent incidents against Trump supporters since September 2015 (those are just the ones that were reported; and it doesn’t take into account how many people have felt too threatened even to wear a MAGA cap or put a Trump sticker on their car or a sign in their yard, which is a blatant violation of their right to free speech.)

Also, note that this cowardly assault took place back in July but is only now coming to light because it took three months for Snapchat to turn the video over to police in response to a search warrant. Funny how when a Trump supporter posts a joke or meme that a leftist doesn’t like and they claim to feel “threatened” by it, social media sites somehow manage to take action overnight.

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

Last month, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that the Trump Administration could implement its change to immigration law, barring immigrants who would become “public charges,” dependent on taxpayer-paid government benefits. The law already allowed the barring of those taking cash payments such as welfare, but this extends it to those who would be on programs such as food stamps and public housing (no, it doesn’t apply to refugees, those who are genuinely in need of US assistance.)

A lot is being made in the news this week about liberal Justice Sonya Sotomayor issuing a “scathing” dissent in that case…

https://q13fox.com/2020/02/23/sotomayor-issues-scathing-dissent-in-supreme-court-order-that-could-reshape-legal-immigration/

…which you can read about at the link. But it might be easy to miss that her biggest gripe isn’t the policy itself but her complaint that Trump is calling on the SCOTUS to issue too many “emergency” rulings to overturn lower courts instead of waiting for all the various layers of appeals to play out. She says this should be reserved for real emergencies, like stays of execution.

I’ll grant the point, but the whole point of all these challenges and appeals is to keep Trump being able to enact any of his agenda until the clock runs out on his Administration. Maybe if the left would stop running to every federal judge with an urge to legislate from the bench and stop abusing the legal system to block the President every time he attempts to exercise his Constitutional powers, then it wouldn’t be necessary to keep calling on the SCOTUS to intervene. Justice Sotomayor’s dissent reminds me of parents who complain about the school constantly calling them to do something about their kids’ out-of-control behavior, but they never consider ending the calls by simply ordering the brats to behave.

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

Your Monday Two-Tiered Justice System News Roundup:

Former deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland has come forward to reveal how she felt forced to flee the country to escape the “traumatic” intimidation tactics of the Mueller investigation team, who hounded her with perjury traps and tried to pressure her to plead guilty to crimes she didn’t commit or accuse colleagues of doing things she didn’t think they’d done.

I feel this is a good place to remind you that we do live in the United States of America, where everyone is protected by the Bill of Rights. Could someone please pass along this information to our federal authorities?

https://www.westernjournal.com/woman-goes-public-traumatic-mueller-interrogation-forced-flee-us/

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

A Defense Intelligence Agency employee who pleaded guilty to leaking classified information to the media is facing up to 10 years in prison. Congratulations to the FBI agents who made the case against him. And of course, to former FBI leaders James Comey and Andrew McCabe, who both also leaked classified information to the media and are walking around free and making big money from their media deals.

https://www.westernjournal.com/bernies-win-nevada-caucuses-rocky-start-democrats-telling-volunteers-not-talk-media/

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

Finally, for those who have some time to kill and a strong stomach (and warning: a tolerance for some salty language), this is a link to the latest episode of the Thomas Paine Podcast. The guest is former FBI agent Robin Gritz, who talks about the culture of corruption and vindictive retribution she and other whistleblowers suffered from Andrew McCabe and his close associates. She claims she was hounded out of the FBI and had all attempts at finding another job thwarted until she lost her home. Funny how we’re supposed to be so solicitous of some whistleblowers, yet the FBI hammers others like they’re Hillary Clinton’s email server.

    I B Y P: I think it was a Cricket Stadium. (I could be wrong). Anyway, maybe the Liberal/Socialists (Democrats) should enlist Putin to run THEIR campaign! It worked with President Trump, didn't it? Shows how uh....."uncerebrial" they are. I can't BELIEVE THIS PRESIDENT! What a Guy! K.A.G!

    Poor joe....I can't tell if he's blaming the President, or if he's blaming bern--maybe both?

    I thought there was a whistleblower protection law? I think it was the one that shiffffff was spouting in order to not name the non-whistle blower leaker? The law that is meant to prevent retaliation against whistle blowers? I guess, maybe it depends on who your bosses are.

    I do wish that every single victim of the left's act of threats, assault, etc were reported and the victims would insist on prosecution. Well, at the rate--it might clog the courts, but better this type of court actions than the ones with prisoners suing about the type of peanut butter or shampoo they are issued. I have read of several recent instances of arrests and charges, but not any outcomes. I think some of the assaulters are random people who are caught up in all the publicity about the antifa. These people don't have the financial backing of the antifa---if enough have to pay the price, maybe at least some of the crap going on would stop.

    I'm guessing the reason obama didn't have to appeal to SCOTUS much would be because his liberal left-wing judge appointees ruled the way he wanted if anyone tried to sue about HIS policies!!!

    It's great to see action against the illegals, to see what is already on the books being upheld. Every day, all over the US, but especially in Congress and in every judges' chambers, all the videos of obama, slick willie and good ol' hil, schumer, etc that has them insisting the immigration system needs to improve, that illegals must be stopped, that those who get in must be deported (and THEY didn't differentiate in those speeches about whether or not only the criminal element should be deported.) Maybe need to play it in SCOTUS chambers, too?

    Mike, I love your political analysis. It is always clear and factual and provides a good take on news items and issues. I do have one suggestion regarding the pop-ups at the bottom right of the screen which show other stories. They are nearly always very old articles. I just saw one that said "BIG BREAKING NEWS: Barr appoints US attorney . . ." When I clicked it (thinking there was some new news), the story was dated May 14, 2019! Having old stories popping up like that is kind of irritating. I suggest your team could only pop up new items (like within the last 2 or 3 days. Thanks for reading this!! PS: My wife and I LOVE the Huckabee show on TBN. It is our favorite show of the week!! Bob Peckham

    And that's saying a lot! I hope she runs for office.

    Why do we still rely on China for medicines and electronics?
    After seeing Mark Levin's interview with P.M. Netanyahu, I am surprised that we don't buy more goods from Israel instead of from China.

    First, your Sara is looking more beautiful by the day. She is so smart and perceptive. Second, we need to find a billionaire Republican to publish a magazine that would be found adjacent to People Mag. in the stands. Call it: Keep America Great. Have a flag, Melania or anything patriotic on the cover. Each month Melania could also write a column for the magazine as she shares topics such as the her recommended way to learn a foreign language, rearing a young man in the White House, nutrition and wellness tips, etc. There could also be a section on REAL AMERICAN heroes, since we and our children tend to idolize the wrong people. Trump, of course, could be interviewed. Each month a different White House employee could explain what his/her job is like. Throw in some exotic recipes from the White House kitchen. I truly believe half the country would buy this magazine even if just out of spite. Would that not be awesome to finally see Melania in print in response to all the magazines out there that have deliberately ignored this amazing, poised, and beautiful first lady? I'm hoping with your connections you could find someone to make this happen. Finally, I started watching your weekend program on the Trinity Network. It was great! Thank you, Mike, for all that you do!

    Would someone please remind Sotomayor that Justices do not belong to a political party. They are by definition supposed to be objective. What does she think she is doing by saying the Democrats have got to "flip Congress"? The nerve of that woman. She should be sanctioned or kicked off the bench for such inflammable words.

    Your statement that there have been over 400 violent incidents against Trump supporters in the past five years sure does lend credibility to my fear of the potential that the hatred toward President Trump has of authoring a real tragic happening!....

    THEN...WHEN I WENT ON TO READ YOU STATE: "...many people have felt too threatened even to wear a MAGA cap or put a Trump sticker on their car or a sign in their yard, (which is a blatant violation of their right to free speech.)" ....I FELT INCLINED TO WANT TO ASK YOU if this reality, alone, is not enough to prove that we have already lost the America we used to know.....BECAUSE....

    It was common to see bumpers with stickers of one's favored political candidate or signs on lawns with their favored political candidate....no one thought anything OF this!.....

    You are right one's not NOW being able to do this, without threat of being harmed, IS a violation of our....CONSTITUTIONAL...right to freedom of speech..
    BUT....the violation OF this constitutional "right" is an end product of man's violation of God's command that we love our enemies because love is not ABOUT agreeing with !!!!

    So, one more time, I can use an example like this one as an illustration of how, in the process of the Democrats indicting President Trump on his violating the LETTER of Constitutional law, they were guilty of violating the SPIRIT of Constitutional law BECAUSE the Constitutional law IS the endproduct OF God's law of love that DOES guarantee freedom of speech BECAUSE love is not ABOUT agreeing with!

    In view of this sad example of how Trump supporters cannot EXPRESS their support of President Trump...and, therefore, their lack of support for the Democrats...without fearing they will be harmed...is it any wonder that our kids want to kill each other when they disagree with one another!

    Since it is HATRED that violates God's law of LOVE, then I stand secure in what has been my ongoing indictment against the Democrats which is that they (BECAUSE of their propagation of hatred) are part of the problem of gun violence, rather than a part of the solution to gun violence....I mean, did anyone ever witness a violent gun that got angry because someone didn't agree with it?

    Perhaps some parallels on the way K.T. McFarland was treated and Stalinist Russia's methods of getting people to rat out someone they knew, or Revolutionary France and the only way to be safe was to accuse someone else. Interesting parallels.

    I love the free italics in the comedy source you provided. I attend an Issues Meeting at my church each week and today's included climate change, recycling, and socialist democrat Bernie. Most have a difficult time with how to pay for these things Bernie proposes but overlook his real agenda and hate from the candidates as I see it. We all know those millionaire and billionaire people do not have the same health care programs the rest of us have if we are lucky. One person even said it was the senate who didn't get anything done these days. Why is there always a mention of how many people attend the Trump rallies but never for the democrat candidates? Silly question!! Thank you for all the real news.

    Waiting on the day, that no matter what people's bank balance is, they all get equal treatment under the law. As far as the SCOTUS, whatever case is put infront of them, do your job! You get paid good, hard earned tax dollars, stop complaining...get over it. We all have to work. About Russia, are the democrats literally loosing their minds. I'm not joking, sin building upon sin, has no where to go, but into more sin. They truly need to go to Church & meet Jesus, before it's too late. The only thing that separates us from God is sin. Remember the rich man & Lazarus. A major gulf goes between & it's too late. Life without God is way too scarey to ponder.
