Reader comment on "...full of Mitt"

Thanks to all who continue to comment on Mitt Romney's foolhardy, ego-driven and fantasy-based vote to convict and remove the President of the United States, his political nemesis. Here's one particularly astute (and concise!) reader reply:

From Wanda:

Oh Mitt.....the Dems will play him like a fiddle and then break the strings.

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

Just in case you actually needed one more reason to take the House of Representatives away from the Democrats and send them back home to think about what they’ve done, they will vote today on the Protecting the Right to Organize Act. With that innocuous-sounding name, it’s expected to pass easily.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/policy/economy/house-democrats-to-vote-to-take-controversial-california-gig-economy-regulations-national

What it would actually do is take California’s disastrous Assembly Bill 5 national. That’s the new law that’s throwing thousands of independent contract workers, from Uber drivers to jazz musicians, out of work by declaring them “employees” and demanding that anyone who hires them provide them with union-style benefits. It’s heavily backed by the unions under the guise of “protecting workers,” but what it really does is eliminate competition, consumer choice, worker freedom and, of course, jobs. Fortunately, it will never pass the Senate, but just the idea that something this stupid and overreaching could pass the House at all should send a chill down your spine.

When you go to the polls this November, remember: Uber drivers and musicians don’t deserve to lose their jobs, Democratic Congress members do.

Just For Laughs: Kurt Schlichter recaps “Three Glorious Days of Democrat Agony.” While it’s not nice to laugh at the misfortunes of others, there are few other writers who can make schadenfreude this funny.

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

Much of the news was dominated Wednesday by talk about Nancy Pelosi’s childish tantrum where she tore up her copy of President Trump’s State of the Union Address behind him at the end of the speech. I don’t want to talk too much more about it because I believe it was a planned stunt, calculated to take the focus off the many, many important things Trump said in that speech, and so far, it’s been working.

While I think it’s good for everyone to take a moment to reflect on just how petulant, childish and emotional the House Democrats have been, there are adults trying to get important things accomplished, and we should pay more attention to that. So with the Senate drop-kicking their ludicrous “impeachment” articles into the landfill of history, it seems a perfect time to do a quick wrap-up of Nasty Nancy stories, then wash my hands of her and her Peanut Gallery’s childish antics.

First of all, there’s the juvenile “He started it!” argument over Trump “snubbing” her proffered hand shake at the beginning of the speech. I’ve watched the tape repeatedly; it seems clear that he was already turning back around before he would’ve seen her extended hand. Besides, he also didn’t shake Mike Pence’s hand. Unlike Nancy Pelosi, Trump had more important things on his mind at the time than petty personal grievances and bruised egos.

Second, a review of the tape shows that among her many distracting ticks that made her look like a hyperactive three-year-old fidgeting through a long sermon, Pelosi surreptitiously began tearing the edges of the pages to make it easier to rip them in half on camera later, a sure indicator that it was a planned stunt to get attention and not some spontaneous protest.

If you don’t see it, here’s a still that makes the pre-torn marks crystal clear.

https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/357271

As always, the Babylon Bee was immediately on the case:

https://babylonbee.com/news/pelosi-rushed-to-hospital-with-54-broken-bones-after-ripping-pages-of-trumps-speech

If the Democrats thought Pelosi's ripping-up-the-speech snit fit and sitting and stewing sourly and silently through great news for America and moving tributes to heroes were going to help them with voters, guess again. Even many Democratic voters were repulsed by their selfish, unpatriotic and juvenile behavior. CSPAN asked for call-in comments, and they were brutal. One man said he’d been a Democrat for 70 years but he was so disgusted, he’d probably stay home rather than vote this year, adding, “They looked like a bunch of dadgum idiots sitting there."

https://pjmedia.com/trending/backfire-i-will-never-vote-democrat-again-say-angry-dems-on-c-span-after-pelosis-tantrum/

It went over even worse with the special guests who were honored during the speech and disrespected by Pelosi and her pack of mean girls and boys.

https://www.westernjournal.com/sotu-guest-whose-brother-murdered-reacts-pelosi-like-ripped-hearts/

Mitch McConnell poured cold water on her stunt when he followed the impeachment acquittal vote by suggesting Pelosi might try to tear up Trump’s acquittal like she tore up his State of the Union speech. He then immediately scheduled confirmation votes on more Trump-appointed judges.

Personally, I would suggest that next year, Trump print his State of the Union on a New York City phone book and toss that to Pelosi -- except that next year, I expect Trump to still be there but a Republican to be sitting in the Speaker’s chair. I do think it would be great, though, if Trump opened his next rally by taking out two pieces of paper and saying, “Impeachment Article One” (rip it slowly in two and toss), “Impeachment Article Two” (rip and toss.)

And now that our long national tantrum is finally over and the spoiled children have been spanked and sent to bed, let the grown-ups get back to making America great again!

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

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz announced that he’s filing an ethics complaint against Pelosi for her flagrant violation of decorum as defined under clauses 1 and 2 of House Rule XXIII, as well a potential criminal violation of 18 USC 2071, the federal law against destroying or mutilating any official government record. Ironically echoing Pelosi’s own rhetoric about Trump, Gaetz declared, “Nobody is above the law. She must be held accountable.” Of course, I doubt that anything will come of this. After all, if destroying official federal records were illegal, Hillary Clinton would’ve been held to account for it, right?

https://www.dailywire.com/news/breaking-lawmakers-file-ethics-complaint-resolution-condemning-pelosi-for-ripping-up-speech/

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

Well, I spoke too soon about the adults getting back to working on helping America: Rep. Jerrold Nadler is already working on a second quixotic lunge at impeaching Trump.

https://www.westernjournal.com/looks-like-nadler-preparing-2nd-impeachment-attempt/

Nadler says that when you have a lawless politician, you have to do whatever it takes to protect the Constitution. He’s absolutely right. That’s why it’s imperative that all of us do whatever it takes to kick the Democrats out of the House next November, put law-respecting adults back in charge, and send Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler and their ilk off to the Retirement Home for Leftist Political Hacks, aka MSNBC.

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

Excellent point by Andrew J. Siascia at Western Journal: the same leftists who want us to put them in charge of all Americans’ health care are publicly rooting for Rush Limbaugh to die of cancer because they disagree with his political views. Isn’t that a comforting thought? But don’t worry, I’m sure they plan to offer excellent public health care in the gulags Bernie’s field organizers are fantasizing about sending Republicans to.

    Mike
    I so look forward to reading your Daily Evening Edition. It’s refreshing to get the facts and not the lamestream media slanted fiction!
    Thanks and keep them coming.

    I would like nothing better than to see Nasty Nancy punished for her rude actions during the Presidents speech. Perhaps 3 years in jail and a big fine would change her snotty attitude toward how the rest of us see her actions. Too bad nothing will be done to her however. She will continue to flaunt her power and evil attitude toward the President and the Republicans in general. What a waste of a human being she is!

    I'm very concerned about the 'NEW WAY FORWARD ACT" currently in the House, sponsored by AOC and her cohorts but, more troubling, supported my a great number of Democrats. I'm perplexed that we're not hearing about it in the mainstream media OR the right-wing stations. It's an extremely scary bill that will hurt ALL Americans but protect both those illegals who have committed felonies but want to come back to our country (at OUR expense), AND those illegals here being protected in sanctuary cities. Pray for America folks - we're in trouble who want to turn it into a 3rd-world country.

    The Dims have had a bad week BUT the media is still in full hate Trump mode so this story will not go where it belongs and Remember HALF the country still has the attention span of a 2 year old on all things political ESPECIALLY with a good/great economy. Forrest Gump's momma had it right !

    In view of the fact that, prior to your nexr to last closing paragraph, your statement that Nadler is already working on a second lunge at impeaching the President evoked righteous rage WITH which I read your next to last paragraph, I am going to copy, and paste, that paragraph below and then CHANGE some of the wording...putting the changed words in CAPITAL LETTERS:

    "CHRISTIANS say that, when you have a GODLESS politician, you have to do whatever it takes to protect the BIBLE. ...AND ITS GODLY VALUES. THEY'RE absolutely right. That’s why it’s imperative that all of us do whatever it takes to kick the Democrats out of the House next November, put GOD -RESPECTING adults back in charge, and send Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler and their ilk off to the Retirement Home for Leftist Political Hacks, aka MSNBC....AS WELL AS ALL THOSE WHO CANNOT EMBRACE THEIR DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT WITH THE LOVE that is THE only hope of making America deserving to be referred to AS being "great" ....and the love that is THE only hope of stopping the HATRED that AUTHORS gun violence!!!

    Very well said. If you have any clout with WOW Cable, please tell them to put TBN back on their schedule. We had TBN when we had AT&T Cable, but when we switched to WOW, soon after they switched TBN to ION which is a nonsense channel. We so loved watching your program on TBN and miss seeing it! Thank you for standing up for America!

    Governor, you are probably getting tired of hearing from me but it is my change to blow of steam. First, Mitt has pretty much become a has been. I don’t think he has much of a political future if he could not see through the impeachment ploy. Secondly, let’s be very careful. Remember how Hilary was sure to win? If we do the same predicting with Trump, people won’t come out to vote since they think enough others will. It is never good to be complacent when it comes to voting. As Hilary found out, it’s never a sure thing. Let’s not give it away by discouraging the act of voting. It looks like Bernie has momentum and the mayor could do well. He is quite charming and appealing. I see the possibility of an upset there. He talks
    reasonably and people could be drawn in. I think POTUS would make mincemeat of him in debates simply by discussing foreign policy issues but nevertheless he has appeal

    The choice of the the little girl born at 22 weeks was brilliant. That’s when many have abortions. Women seeing that little girl might think twice. Haveing seen a sonogram at about the period in gestation, I can truthfully say, that is a baby with fingers and toes, organs and a brain.

    Mike-I’m totally about President Trump being acquitted. His defense team were brilliant. The State of the Union Address was his best
    yet and Pelosi’s arrogance and temper tantrum showed the core of who she really is. What is nauseating is President Trumps post acquittal boasting, bragging and mud slinging. Just when I think I might really like this guy for who he is and not just for what he’s done he gets self righteous. He needs a big dose of reality, humility or he will not get ready-elected and we desperately need a Republican in the White House.

    The D-Rats are working to overthrow America that is factual the accusations made toward America are the crimes they actually have committed trying to corrupt elections bring false witness against an American President, Legislating bills in the House called New Way Forward Act. Mike all of this is aimed at America using President Trump and the media to bring down America. Watching Betty Davis Pelosi unraveling is the start; stability will not return to her she is losing self control, the mental strain is evident and has been for awhile. She has become just like Mueller the time spent lying, the undoing of decency, lack of civility, being attacked by her own members has taken its toll; their dismal attempt at best, working for our people has disappeared, the people of the Heartland will not have a Healthcare plan, Immigration reform or a middle class tax reform take place until the D-Rats are put in the homes for assisted living the anti American philosophy will drive them deeper into the political abyss its happening now the D-RATS can not count votes for 5 people in the State of Iowa how can they manage world operations? They simply Can't MAGA vote Conservative.

    I think the SOTU speech was the best I have ever heard and I firmly believe that God sets the 'LEADERS', in place. We have been praying for a strong leader to clean up the corruption in Washington and God supplied. I have supported and Prayed for President Trump from the beginning but was so disappointed at his language during the 'victory and thank you meeting' that I was ashamed. Adults and especially Children do not need to hear the President use curse words like he did. I am a born again Christian Retired Minister and he even offended me and I truly felt sorry for him.
