Evening Edition - December 7

December 7, 2019 |

The President’s attorney sent Rep. Jerrold Nadler an official response to his invitation to participate in Monday’s impeachment hearings, a.k.a., the official distraction from the IG report into the Russian collusion hoax.

Details and the full response are at this link:

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-responds-to-impeachment-deadline-i

But to sum it up briefly:

No. Now quit wasting America’s time with this charade and start doing some real work. 

 

 -----------------------------------

We learned this week that being an Ivy League law professor doesn’t necessary mean you know the difference between unfounded hearsay and actual evidence.  But another thing we learned is that these esteemed legal minds must have also snored through history class, because they claimed that President Trump’s alleged transgressions are “worse than the misconduct of any prior President.” 

Seriously?  Mean tweets and wanting to make sure taxpayer dollars aren’t going into the pockets of corrupt kleptocrats are worse than putting Japanese-Americans into internment camps or resegregating the Civil Service, the way two of the Democrats’ most revered Presidents did?  

At the link, David Harsanyi offers these historically-challenged professors a refresher course on what real Presidential abuse of power looked like (by they way, I assume they also slept through the entire Obama Administration.)

https://nypost.com/2019/12/05/trumps-supposed-abuses-pale-in-comparison-to-past-presidents/

PS – Note that Harsanyi isn’t a Trump fan. He writes of “Trump’s blundering attempt to launch a self-serving Ukrainian investigation into his rival’s shady son” as if Trump’s selfish motivations were proven fact rather than the latest fevered charge from Adam Schiff, backed up by nothing but hearsay and denied by everyone with firsthand knowledge.  But Harsanyi argues, “This isn’t a case in favor of Trump; it’s a plea for people to resist saying insane things because they dislike this President.”

I think he misses the point: if they could resist saying insane things about Trump, it would mean they weren’t insane.

 

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

In case there was still any doubt about what the Washington Post is, their media columnist Margaret Sullivan made it abundantly clear by arguing that it’s the duty of “journalists” to reach “the undecided” and persuade them that Trump should be impeached.  Apparently, watching the pathetic parade of thirdhand hearsay and disgruntled bureaucrats that the Democrats have presented as “evidence” isn’t persuading us unwashed rubes to think the proper way. She suggests that media outlets (rather than, say, reporting the news objectively) take a movie trailer approach to impeachment coverage, to try to entice us into buying their spin. It might work: a snappy trailer has been known to bamboozle people into buying tickets to some real turkeys.

https://www.foxnews.com/media/washington-post-impeachment-undecided-column

But since she brought up the subject of movie trailers, here’s a place where you can watch one for a film I have seen and can vouch for as a must-see. 

https://nosafespaces.com/

It’s called “No Safe Spaces,” and it’s Dennis Prager and Adam Carolla’s documentary about the war on free speech, particularly on America’s college campuses, the kind that are turning out brainwashed leftist propagandists who go to work for WaPo.  The film broke records in its earliest limited showings, but it’s now opening nationwide. 

At that link, you can learn more and find a theater where it’s showing near you.  I encourage you to go see it ASAP, both because of the shocking things you will see in it, and because a big opening weekend box office for it will send a lot of leftist thought police scurrying to their safe spaces to soothe themselves with their Play-Doh and Che Guevara coloring books.

 

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

 

To Hillary Clinton, everything that stood between her and the White House, other than her own personality, was part of a vast Russian conspiracy.  Her ability to spot Russians behind every rock continues to this day, with her recent claim that Iraq War veteran Tulsi Gabbard is a “Russian asset” who might run as a third party candidate, something Gabbard has never voiced any intention of doing (of course, that would help Trump – whom Hillary also claims is a “Russian asset” – to win.)

And now, Hillary has identified yet another Boris Badenov in disguise: Bernie Sanders!  Hillary claims the Russians helped boost Bernie in 2016, which hurt her chances, so Bernie is a Russian asset.   

https://www.westernjournal.com/hillary-identifies-another-russian-asset-bernie-sanders/

Can you imagine anyone suggesting that Bernie Sanders, an avowed socialist who went on his honeymoon to the Soviet Union, is a “Russian asset”? 

Oh, wait a minute…You know, this might be an example of that old saying: “Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while.” 

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

A video has gone viral, showing an illegal immigrant climbing up and over a section of the new border security wall.  It’s being shared all over social media by liberals as proof that border walls provide no real security.

https://www.westernjournal.com/border-patrol-agent-demolishes-viral-video-proving-wall-doesnt-work/

What the 38 seconds of video doesn’t show is that the high wall slowed down the border crosser, and combined with the improved lighting, detection monitoring and patrol roads that came with it, border agents were able to apprehend him within minutes. Click the link to learn what Paul Harvey used to call “the rest of the story.” 

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

 

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to solicit apologies from those who criticized her for driving away 25,000 new Amazon.com jobs from her district, after Amazon announced plans to create 1500 jobs in New York, but not in her district. I don’t think she understands how Twitter works any better than she understands economics or math.

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

 

An actor whose face and voice you know from countless movie and TV roles, Ron Liebman, died Friday at 82.  He first came to national attention in 1956 on the soap opera, “The Edge of Night.” His career stretched on for the next six decades, with a Tony Award on Broadway for “Angels in America,” and roles in movies such as “Norma Rae” and many TV shows.  If you still can’t place him, I’ll bet this does it: he was Rachel’s irascible father, Dr. Green, on “Friends.”

Our sympathies to his wife, actress Jessica Walter, and his family.

    As a liberal, I'm sick and tired of whining conservatives saying "The Trump impeachment is a witch hunt " and the Democrats want to impeach because they hate him and all that garbage .
    Fact: Donald Trump has proved to be an atrocious president and is dangerously incompetent and unbelievably corrupt . Not to mention a blithering idiot , a narcissistic sociopath , a pathological liar , as well as appallingly unstable mentally , paranoid and undergoing alarming mental decline and dementia .
    This man is totally unfit to be president and is a clear and present danger to this country, the American people and the entire planet . He must be removed from office as soon a possible . But at this point it's difficult to know whether he belongs in prison or a mental institution !

    §I’m a bit dubious about the Horowitz & won’t be surprised if his report concludes with similar statements to that of Comey’s & Mueller’s!! §God knows which of Democrats are on the “payroll” of China, Russia, Korea, Iran, EU, etc., & of the Elite to oust Pres Trump!? They dislike him for telling them the truth straight to their faces! I won’t be surprised. §What a waste of time & how unfair it’s to the President, the office of Presidency, the Constitution, the Republic & to the Trump voters all these impeachment inquiries are. All that went before it, what’s going on now & what is to follow makes me ill. Democrats have only opinions & feelings & no solid evidence! §This isn’t the America I knew in the early 60s. Yes, things, people, ideas, policies change with the times, Still, this attack at the fundamentals of the Constitution of our country by the Democrats is unforgivable & criminal! They’re the ones jeopardizing the national security, the fundamentals of American democracy, the stability & the future of our country. §Adam Schiff, Nadler, Pelosi, Schumer, Maxine Waters, the Squad & many others with them ought to be impeached, indicted & sent to jail. They’re committing treasonous acts, & no one can do anything, or no one does anything!! They accuse the President & his team of the very same things the FBI, DNC, CIA, Hillary, Obama, Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Nadler, Blue lawyers, professors at the hearings & many of their elites are guilty of. God help us!! §President Trump has done none of the things they accuse him of, nor any of the things they’re adding to their “impeachable” list! They’re twisting & stretching & shrinking & flattening all those so called “facts” they’ve conjured up to fit their narrative & imaginary moulds. All these mentioned here, Comey, etc., & similar others must be sued for defamation §May they never ever succeed & be turned into miserable buffoons to eat their own words. May the Lord have mercy on them!

    There is no issue that we have always had a need for immigrants to help populate our country, after all we all originated from ancestors who immigrated to this new world. It is who we are, but for the most part even though we came from different cultures, backgrounds, & religions we have also united as Americans, excepting our laws, freedoms, and creating a great melting pot culture of strength & prosperity for all who work for it. But the times are a changing.

    I happen to believe one of this Country’s major problems is our very poor immigration & border protection policies, as well as the incentive to fix them. Since the 60’s our leaders from both parties have failed in the protection of its citizen’s homeland safety, security & property. They have foolishly placed the rights, safety, welfare, & freedoms of noncitizens over those of its own citizens. Yesterday on Tucker Carlton Tonight show on Fox News Channel, he did a three minute segment on the purposed 2019 modification of the existing “Farm Workforce Modernization Act”. This act has been around for some time now, but like most of our past laws it has been modified, abused, poorly enforced, & twisted to benefit illegal immigrants over not only our own current citizens but those immigrants who choose to come to our country legally. I suggest that you take three minutes of your time and watch this excerpt and then take his suggestion and ask your elected leaders to respond. It is an eye opener. Hope you follow through. DAVE

    Hi! Regarding the wall crossing...Correct me if I am wrong, but I also read that in this mornings' paper. But until I went to the second last paragraph I also jumped to the conclusion that the wall could be crossed...not easily...but crossed. That last parapgraph said that this was not TRUMP'S wall but another one that had been put up earlier. Maybe the whole article was wrong. Surprise! Surprise!

    The defeat of the Constitution of the United States is in motion as these investigations continue to impeach the President of the United States. Make no mistake Nadler with his hate of our President along with the hate by Pelosi Schiff all these people hate our President thats why they stick together to use our President as a tool to undo the United States Constitution. The proof I use the Presidential candidates want a system of Socialism in one way or another, it all ties together. Our President is fighting to keep our Constitution in tact and the Left hates him for doing just that. The Left would like to see the US as China West ( the left would like to call the US the former United States) follow the money the Media receives as it tears away at our President and our Constitution.

    Further...I believe those Democrats on the Intel Comte are intellectually incapable of doing their own questioning without showing how inept they are and need to use their "staff" to do the arguments...it is obvious also that opening statements and questions by democratic reps were actually written by their staff, and not from the intellectual understanding of any democratic representative. There are going to be a lot of democratic seats taken over republicans. It shows me that there is no one on the democrats side that has the guts to stand up to the "machine" that is about to break down in the next election. So foolish.

    first, some impeachment stuff----
    nadler or sometimes known a 'tweedle dum'--others have characterized as 'the egg', has really fallen off the edge--he apparently is incapable of actually understanding parlimentary law--witness his refusal to address a 'point of order'--which must be resolved before further debate.
    House rules seem to also have no impact--watch the votes--the chairman calls for a 15 minute vote-----and the time runs out but most reps have still not voted(both parties)--they mill around for maybe 10-15 more minutes before all have cast ballots-----so much for rules.----I think this time should be added up, and charged back to the worthless reps we have--of all the bills sponsored and voted on--if the time limits were exceeded, the PEOPLE should be reimbursed(out of the reps' salary) for the wasted time by the folks we sent to represent us.---I voted for my rep/Sen.--to do what I want them to do. If they don't do it, I expect a refund of my payment to them.

    The program of Dec. 7, 2019 was one of the best. Great content, and much less of what seems like an attempt to be a resurrection of "Hee Haw." I believe your viewers will respond favorably to more thoughtful serious content and less juvenile humor.

    I try to see every nationally distributed non-R-rated Christian movie I can for their socially redeeming values and morals as a way of tithing to good Christian causes. I won't see any R-rated Hollywood elitist-starring movies so my ticket money doesn't support the producing of more of same. I will cross off my movie-going list any Hollywood elitist who bashes President Trump without justification because they hate him for some reason (even if his robust economy is putting more money in their pockets and purses). If more American movie-goers would do the same, we would see more faith-based movies and fewer super violent, crude humor, bad-language and socially un-redeeming films. Where do you want to plant your seed money?

    Good newsletter. I really have to be nice, but AOC is a piece of work, need I say more. I do remember Ron Liebman, & condolences to his family.
    I'm keeping my comment short, but have you seen where the media took a pitcher of the salt & pepper shakers at the luncheon meeting the President had? His were "bigger"! Is this really news worthy? The media is totally out of their minds. This mental illness at it's best!

    I want to know the name of the college Sullivan attended. I don't want my kids going there. Apparently they teach lies. Sullivan doesn't know that her job is to give me the facts and let me make up my own mind. She is supposed to ask, who, when, where, why and how. Report it. And it is up to me and the readers to figure the rest out. I might not have learned much about journalism, but I did learn that much.

    When will Fox News stop putting Judge Napolitano on air for abusing his position as a judge to mislead the American people in order to get President Trump impeached. A Fox News host unable to respond to Napolitano's false pronouncements against the President should not invite Napolitano on their air. Napolitano, to make false accusations against the President, disregards there is no crime, there is no evidence of a crime, there is much evidence the President's conduct was appropriate, and the President's conduct is not impeachable under the Constitution; and there is evidence the process to impeach is a totally false partisan effort. Napolitano bases his false pronouncements for impeachment on Nixon and Clinton where there were crimes and evidence of crimes and bipartisan support for impeachment, none of which are here. Fox News and Napolitano, cut the "fake news".

    The other day on my break at work, some how the conversation turned to how are nation has never in it's history has been so divided. (I couldn't let this one go). I said for starters the American Civil War with 665,000 dead in combat, on both sides of the Mason Dixon line.
    I cannot believe the reply was " But we weren't this divided then as we are now with Trump ".
    I guess what the liberals learn is they refuse to learn from history and facts unless it agrees with us.

    Ah, poor ocasio--people are ruining all her good "stories" about food stamps and Amazon. Actually pretty much all of her stories are figments of her imagination. Every time there is discussion, and even legislation about not giving food stamps to healthy, able-bodied adults without dependents who should be working--the cry goes out about the poor women, children and old people who will suffer. She isn't the first to proclaim this, I don't suppose she will be the last. However, the cries previously have been from ordinary citizens, I don't remember a member of Congress saying this--although they might have in committee as its being discussed.

    Thanks for the rundown of previous Presidents and their "crimes" by David Harsanyi. Funny how all those times, except for President Nixon, no one seemed to demand impeachment. And, frankly, all that I see the left going after President Trump for are things even potential candidates (such as hil) and some congressmen themselves are guilty of. As for hil (whose campaign meddled in the 2016 election including foreign intervention even against the other frontrunner for the nomination) her personality didn't really factor all that much in my decision to not support her. Rather, it was a lack of any platform. Telling people they HAVE to vote for her because she spent 30+ years in politics to become the first woman President and all women HAVE to vote for her because she is woman--nah, doesn't tell me one thing about what SHE would do for the people of the US of A. Meanwhile, Donald Trump knew what was important to the masses, and addressed how to deal with the issues. Funny, though, that hil would now be blaming bern--the fellow she cheated out of a fair run for the candidacy. (With foreign involvement?????)

    Sir, I enjoy your columns, but when will anyone have the guts to start exposing the spraying of our skies with the following chemicals, aluminum, barium, strontium 90 and mercury. I have been on this for 15 years or more. What I see here in Yuma, Az, around Nov 1 when our winter visitor arrive by the thousands our skies are sprayed almost every day all day long just over our area then around April 1 when they return home the spraying almost comes to a stop! Traveling from here to the mid west we see major cities being sprayed heavily but not the out lying area. Letters to our state legislators with the question, does this spraying have positive or negative affect on our health and well being? Please answer yes or no! Still waiting for the answer?? The planes are unmarked and at about 35,000 alt. I have a lot of info to dispute what the gov says, which is, that is only con trails from commercial planes!! Well con trails evaporate rapidly these stay in the sky forming wispy looking clouds for many hours and commercial planes do not make U turns and circles over a populated area like they have here many times. Arizona Sky watch had some scientist test the spray and they found the chemicals mentioned in it and stated it very well could be why there is almost an epidemic pf Alzheimer's on the increase???? This spraying covers the US and Canada and probably South America and I have gotten reports from Australia on this also so it must be world wide. The cost of fuel for these large planes must be in the billions not to mention the cost of the chemicals used which we found comes from Monsanto the #1 poisoner of humans!!
