Evening Edition - October 26

October 26, 2019

I could’ve warned the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) not to try to stake out the moral high ground on “there’s nothing suspicious about Joe Biden’s son’s eye-poppingly lucrative business dealings,” but they wouldn’t have listened anyway.  They thought it was a club to beat Trump with, so they grabbed it like babies grab a rattle.  They just made a lot of noise that attracted attention to the long-ignored question of how Biden’s son became so wealthy with so few qualifications.  And now, reporters are going all the way back to Joe’s Senate days to dig up stuff that frankly doesn’t smell so good.

Don’t you just love it when the New York Times sets out to write a “gotcha” piece destroying the anti-impeachment argument of Republicans and doesn’t realize that it’s actually confirmed their argument instead?

In what has to be the most damning example ever of the idiotic, counter-productive, economy-killing policies of the “progressive” left, California has somehow managed – by a combination of crushing over-regulation and high taxes – to make it unprofitable to sell marijuana to Californians.

Hillary Clinton loves to bash President Trump as a crude vulgarian unworthy of the office that she really won in 2016.  Yet when one of his most vociferous political enemies, Rep. Elijah Cummings, suddenly died, Trump issued a response that was dignified, respectful, nonpartisan and filled with nothing but praise for Cummings.  Hillary responded by bashing Trump during her eulogy at Cummings’ funeral.

Stay classy, Hillary!

In a story that received less media coverage than Kim Kardashian’s last chest cold, President Trump went Friday to Benedict College, a historic black college in Columbia, South Carolina.  He was honored by the 20/20 Bipartisan Justice Center for his part in passing the First Step Act, the criminal justice reform bill that frees people sentenced to unjust, lengthy mandatory prison terms and helps them readjust to life outside prison.  It’s the type of criminal justice reform Democrats have talked about for years, but not even Obama would do it. 

https://www.westernjournal.com/trump-honored-bipartisan-justice-award-black-leaders-criminal-justice-reform/

In his speech at Benedict, Trump talked about how the economy is the “best criminal justice reform of all” because historic low unemployment for all demographics and an excess of job openings means that employers will take a chance on giving someone with a prison record a job.  

What press coverage the event did get focused mostly on students outside the event protesting Trump and chanting that he had to go (to be replaced, I assume, with a Democrat who will offer more false promises in place of action.)  Meanwhile, Kamala Harris responded by pulling out of a weekend forum at Benedict, saying, “I won’t be complicit in papering over Trump’s record.”

That’s odd, because I imagine papering over Trump’s record on criminal justice reform, supporting black colleges and creating economic opportunities for minorities is one of the DNC’s top priorities.

I haven’t discussed the growing (and increasingly weird) sex scandal involving Democratic Rep. Katie Hill because…well, it’s kind of gross and creepy.  But at least I wasn’t ignoring it for political reasons while claiming to be an unbiased news outlet, like some people I could name.  And I didn’t ignore her scandal while trumpeting a far less disturbing one involving someone from the other party – again, like certain media outlets I could name.

In short, I didn’t ignore it because I’m biased, I just ignored it because it’s icky.  But the incredibly biased coverage (or lack of coverage) by people whose job it is to cover it?  Now, that’s newsworthy.  So here you go:

    So blessed to be away from the media the last 3 days I find the US got the leader of the coward and uncivilized Islamic Terriorist group Congrats. I find Pelosi is whining about not being informed just like children parents can not let the kids know about adult issues they are not ready to understand Pelosi you are still a kid playing your childish revenge game you are not ready for adult issues. Keep playing dirty with your Impeachment game that way you will be busy while U try and grow up don't worry Pelosi time is running out on your leadership in the crooked house. After your failed impeachment hearing start thinking how to spend your crooked money maybe you can get some decent dentures so your not sucking on your gums all day. Or you can become a writer for the Post and the Times maybe get on CNN so you will have an anti American Platform just like your twin Hillary 2 Anti American heroes!!!!!!!!!!! PS don't bother the President he's busy MAGA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ignorance of the NYT? failing to do what they set out to do...AGAIN! ha, ha! Says one of the most foul-mouthed politicians in history? Her language could curl hair. Kamala needs to grow up. I heard she threw a hissy like a 5 year old now long ago. Before she disses HIS record, maybe she should take a look at her own as CA AG. Ick!

    Kamala Harris cannot say anything as these students apparently have some morals and do not care to SLEEP their way to the top.

    Seth Rich.
    Do you suppose there's any way word could get to Bill Barr and Durham to check into the death of Seth Rich? Such mysterious circumstances; "robbery gone bad" but nothing of value taken; the police prematurely "closing" the case; he was a DNC staffer who became disenchanted; suspicions that HE is the one who "hacked" the DNC emails and gave them to Wikileaks (data analysis show the "hack" was NOT truly an internet hack, but a direct download, ie. and inside job). It all relates to the mysterious happenings of 2016. Maybe they can use their legal magic to find out what really happened. Maybe YOU can use your PR magic to pique their curiousity. I cannot "rest in Peace" over this young man's death as long as the truth is being hidden.

    I think there is a place in the Bible that states that Your Sins will be shouted from the roof tops ; Today they are being shouted on the internet
    by many people . People would do better if they follow the Lord's Commandments including the great ones . Jesus gave them for a reason.
    PS. I see you hear when I miss you on the fox news or you tube .

    The increasing absurdity of the loony left is an amazing sight to behold. Their frustration with the success of the Trump presidency is finally bringing about their destruction by their own hands with their own pens and keyboards. This diabolical movement started over a century ago in the universities by demented professors probably drinking a little too much lead contaminated water coupled with their parochial monastic separation from the society which feeds and clothes them. Viktor Frankl who survived internment in 4 National SOCIALIST Workers Party concentration camps said that movement which killed so many and caused so much terror and destruction originated at the lecturns of Europe's universities. Likewise, the looney left in this country is nurtured and sustained by leftist looney professors who brainwash young impressionable know nothings who then go out to change the world through politics, media, and law. Finally reaching critical mass in this country we are witnessing the movement turn upon itself fortunately before it had the opportunity to bring death and destruction as it did in socialist Germany, the Soviet states, China, Cambodia, Cuba, Nicaragua, etc.
    I believe the insanity of the left can no longer be hidden from the masses and that its downfall is inevitable thanks in part to clear thinking well reasoned current event analysis such as this site. Thank you for the great work!

    Hillary reminds me of the Stuart Smalley daily affirmation episode where she seems to believe, "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me!" Actually Hillary, you are as amazingly irrelevant as you are bitter. For some unknown reason, you fail to get it. Definitely a losing character flaw.....

    I watched President Trump’s address at Benedict College because I live here in Columbia, SC and was very interested. Our Mayor, Steve Benjamin is a Democrat, and so are quite a few of our African-American leaders here in Columbia. After Kamala Harris refused to attend this event because President Trump would be there to accept an award for the First Step’s Bill passage, Mayor Benjamin, and others, created a different event today to honor her and have her come and speak. While word WAS sent out to Benedict College students to “Remain in their Dorms between 1:00 and 4:00 PM while President Trump was going to be there”, and told that this was for their own safety, this meant that there were few if any students allowed to attend the event! However, with the Kamala Harris event, students were encouraged to attend! If THIS isn’t “influencing voters” I don’t know WHAT is!!!
