Are you sitting down? RealClearInvestigations reporter Paul Sperry has put a name to the “whistleblower” whose complaint about the President’s phone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky touched off the closed-door impeachment “inquiry” currently going on behind closed doors. His identity apparently had been an open secret around Washington but hadn’t been revealed to the general public. Oh, and if this is the person, then we also know the name of his former boss:

John Brennan. The guy worked for the CIA. In fact, he’s still there.

FEATURED STORY

A horror show for Democrats

By Mike Huckabee

Happy Halloween, everyone!  And here’s a Halloween horror story for Democrats: the Commerce Department just released economic data on the third quarter of 2019, and growth surpassed expectations.  While the 1.9% growth was slightly lower than the second quarter’s 2.0%, it still beat economists’ predictions of 1.6%. My insincere condolences to all the liberals who were hoping the economy would crater and a lot of Americans would suffer so it would be easier for them to win elections in 2020.

The White House pointed out some other positive aspects of the data, such as that this is now officially the longest economic expansion without a recession in US history, and that if it weren’t for the GM strike and Boeing’s problems, third-quarter growth would be 2.2%.  There’s more at the link.

Some commentators tried to downplay the good economic news by claiming that Trump’s trade war stand-off with China is holding back growth.  Of course, they never point out that one reason China has engaged in the stand-off for so long might be that they see all the “Resistance” forces trying to impeach Trump for everything he says or does and think that if they just hold out a little longer, maybe he’ll be gone or at least too weakened to keep fighting. I think their lack of understanding of Trump is on par with his critics’ lack of understanding of just how much their refusal to accept the results of the 2016 election has encouraged America’s enemies and economic rivals to hang in there.

Must-See TV:  Wednesday, the Pentagon released photos and video of the nighttime raid on the compound where ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed.  Watch it and read the full story here:

Today, the House will allegedly vote on rules for an impeachment inquiry, or whatever they're calling this thing today at – or maybe they’ll come to their senses and not vote, it’s too early to tell at this writing.  But you can read about the ridiculous all-nighter they pulled on Wednesday, trying to hammer this list of rigged rules together over many Republican objections.

It’s said that anyone with an interest in legislation or sausage should never look too closely at how either is made. But in this case, I’d like everyone to look very closely at what’s going on in the House, particularly because the Democrats are so anxious for you not to.  Don’t worry, they’re not making sausage, they’re just making a big hash of their Constitutional duties.

If you thought the treatment that Brett Kavanaugh got in his Senate confirmation hearing was an all-time low, then check out this incident from the hearing for 9th Circuit Court of Appeals nominee Lawrence VanDyke. The American Bar Association apparently looked at the outrageously unfair slander of Kavanaugh that we thought could never be topped and said, “Hold muh beer!”

Congratulations to the Washington Nationals, who staged a come-from-behind victory in Game 7 over the Houston Astros to win their first World Series, and the first for a DC team since the Washington Senators won the World Series in 1924.

If it’s any consolation to Astros fans, in every other way, Houston is still better than Washington, DC. 

 

Bible Verse of the Day (KJV)

"For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ."

    Jesus cast legion out, they went into the swine. The swine drown & it looks as though the demons decided to go into the donkeys.
    Attention AOC, a study shows that donkey farts are much worse for the environment than cow farts. The donkey's are so bad they caused 1 donkey to bark like a dog (Hillary) another to say "I've been to 57 states & have 1 more to go to. Even some elephants, like me have periods of laughing hysterically.

    I'm praying that the American voters see the truth of the evil Democrat plots and lies and deliver a landslide vote for Trump and righteousness such as has never happened in all of America's history for the Glory of God.
    If an ordinary citizen like me can see thru all the lying and plotting I'm praying a great massive majority do also. They are not winning. The evil ones game is to discredit Trump before the election and they will not win.

    Good grief, who can keep up with all this "whistle blower" saga? This is all stacking up higher than all-you-can-eat pancake day at I -Hop. I can't wait for the upcoming made for TV NetFlix series, which will take several seasons to unfold the complicated drama. The house of thrones in this series is the one King Schiff (with optional Burger King crown) thinks he occupies in the proceedings. And I thought Claire Underwood in "House of Cards" was a control freak!

    I watched the entire session RE: HR 660 and googled the question: How many votes does it take to pass a resolution? The answer I got was 2/3 of the house....the votes weren't even close. So how is it that the disgusting, unfair process is continuing?
