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

I know this will crush you to hear, but the House isn’t in session this week. Where will we get our entertainment?!  

Conveniently, Speaker Pelosi tossed her “impeachment inquiry” stink bomb into the public arena just days before a two-week break for members to go home and do “district work.”  If your member is one of those who has blocked or refused to work with Trump on issues vital to America and instead is pushing to impeach an incredibly successful President over an innocuous phone call, then I hope you’ll make it a point to seek out him, her or xir and let them know exactly what you think of the job they’re doing.  After all, that’s why they came home, right?  To hear what the people who made the mistake of electing them think of the job they’re doing in Washington?  Be sure to let them know. 

Meanwhile, I have a way to soothe your withdrawal symptoms from not seeing Nancy Pelosi and Jerry Nadler on TV 24/7, piously intoning about their love of the Constitution and how Trump must be driven from office. 

Thanks to blogger Rusty Weiss for compiling onto one page three old video clips from Bill Clinton’s impeachment hearings in 1998 for us to watch and rewatch over the new two weeks.  See Nadler and Pelosi piously intoning that this impeachment is only because the President’s political opponents are “paralyzed with hatred” of him, and warning that “impeachment of a President is an undoing of a national election” and his opponents are so angry they’re ripping our votes away from us, and “telling us that our votes don’t count and that the election must be set aside.”

Now, there are a couple of politicians who really care about the Constitution and respect the will of the voters!  I wonder what ever happened to them?

With gratitude,

FEATURED STORIES

Monday Fake News

By Mike Huckabee

The attorneys for the Ukraine phone call “whistleblower” say that “Sixty Minutes” completely misinterpreted a letter from their legal team by falsely reporting that their client is under federal protection. “Sixty Minutes” says it stands by its story, which prompted the lawyers to accuse them of “literally making things up.”  They asked if CBS seriously thinks it has a source more reliable than the “whistleblower’s” own lawyers. 

My money is on Dan Rather.

Update on the Democratic Presidential Demolition Derby

By Mike Huckabee

Update on the Democratic Presidential Demolition Derby: with Joe Biden having some inconvenient issues and Bernie Sanders slipping among the crazy left base, Elizabeth Warren has been rising in the polls, and that’s bad news for the Democrats on a number of fronts. 

First…well, she’s Elizabeth Warren.  There’s all the baggage that comes with that: her off-putting personality, the lack of any executive or private sector experience, the massive government/socialistic policies and the promises to spend more money than is in circulation in the entire world (that’s not an exaggeration, it’s a calculation.) 

But now comes this: some of the Democrats’ biggest donors in one of the bluest states, the Wall Street bankers and New York business tycoons, are warning that if Warren – who sees rich people, banks and businesses as giant piggy banks and herself as a hammer – is the nominee, they’ll withhold their money or even back Trump.

https://www.westernjournal.com/report-warren-closes-gap-major-dem-donors-say-rather-support-trump/

Oh, if only the DNC had any experience at keeping a troublesome socialist candidate from winning the nomination!  This new problem for them reminds me of what humorist A. Whitney Brown said about the collapse of the Soviet Union: “Whoever would’ve guessed that the fatal flaw of communism is that there’s just no money in it?”

The Left eats their own

By Mike Huckabee

Many of us tried to sound an alarm bell over the rising intolerance of the left, but establishment liberals kept quiet because the radicals were only attacking the rights of people they disagreed with: conservatives, gun owners, Christians, pro-life activists, etc. But as their bullying tactics have met with more success, they’ve widened their targets to include even those on their own side who are not 110% behind their radical agenda.  And liberals are shocked to discover that they’ve become targets, too.  Welcome to the party.

We’ve seen the gradual awakening across America, from black and Hispanic voters who are tired of being pushed to vote against their own interests just because leftists falsely label their opponents as “racists” and “white supremacists”…to Brandon Straka’s #WalkAway movement…to comedians fed up with the left’s “cancel culture” if they told an insensitive joke 15 years ago…to Marianne Williamson’s recent revelation that people on the right were nicer to her than those on her own side who could be really mean (she’s since backtracked, I assume out of fear of more bullying.)

Now, you can add Hollywood filmmakers to the list of those who are finally removing their blinders.  The makers of the new comic book-inspired movie “Joker” were stunned when anti-gun activists who lost relatives in the Aurora movie theater mass shooting in 2012 blasted the film (which hasn’t even been released yet) for allegedly glorifying violent acts by bullied, deranged loners.  They're demanding that the studio, Warner Brothers, support anti-gun legislation and stop any contributions to politicians who support the NRA.  Because of the connection to “Batman,” they feel especially triggered, saying the film might encourage the same type of shooter who attacked the showing of “The Dark Knight Rises.”

https://www.westernjournal.com/families-shooting-victims-demand-joker-filmmakers-promote-gun-control-publicly-bash-nra/

The film’s director, Todd Phillips, and star Joaquin Phoenix argued that a movie doesn’t turn someone into a mass killer, and it’s obvious (or should be) that if you don’t know the difference between right and wrong, you can misinterpret anything to mean whatever you want to see in it, but that’s not the creator’s responsibility, it’s the viewer’s.  Sounds as if Hollywood has two freshly-minted Libertarians.

Incidentally, I think it’s worth reminding people that not even the “Dark Knight” shooter was inspired to kill by “The Dark Knight Rises.” He had a long history of mental problems, and the showing he attacked was the very first midnight screening of the film, so he likely hadn’t even seen it.  But as John Lott pointed out, it wasn’t the closest or biggest theater near him, but it was the only one that banned patrons with concealed carry permits from bringing in their weapons to defend themselves.  While it's not certain whether he chose it because it was a "gun-free zone," his own diary revealed that he'd rejected attacking an airport because there was too much security.

https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/did-colorado-shooter-single-out-cinemark-theater-because-it-banned-guns

This suggests that if you really want to stop mass shooters, stop attacking the NRA and Batman movies and go after “gun-free zones.”

I wanted to make sure you also read these comments:

Before your Democratic Representatives headed home to mingle with the forgotten people who sent them to Washington, one of the last things they did was to pass a bill to fast-track an electronic medical records system to improve health care for illegal immigrants while voting down a Republican amendment to provide the same for veterans, who are currently set to have to wait ten years for it.

https://www.westernjournal.com/dems-vote-enhance-med-care-illegals-now-vote-vets-waiting-10-years-service/

As Republican Rep. Phil Roe of Tennessee put it, why are we treating people who break our laws better than we treat our military heroes?  That’s another good question to ask your Congress members during their two weeks off. 

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

The Ig Nobel Prizes for the most dubious achievements in science were given out recently at Harvard.  This year’s big winner was Dr. Silvano Gallus, an epidemiologist in Milan, whose research suggested that eating pizza can reduce the risk of heart attacks and some kinds of cancer – but only if the ingredients come from Italy and it’s made and eaten in Italy.

https://www.westernjournal.com/italian-scientist-studied-link-pizza-decreased-cancer-risk-wins-eccentric-award/

The Ig Nobel Prizes are usually pretty funny, but this just seems like more support for the Mediterranean Diet. Besides, I think that anyone who can prove scientifically that pizza makes you healthier deserves genuine worldwide acclaim.  These days, if you want laughs, you'll have to look at who’s getting the real Nobel Peace Prizes.

If you’re getting a little bored with Facebook memes involving AOC, here’s a very pointed one involving a completely different spoiled, immature young woman who wants to take the benefits of capitalism away from everyone else while wallowing in them herself.

    You know Mike...I was sitting in the quiet of my living room last Saturday morning drinking my coffee and thinking about why it is that the left hates Trump so much. I thought that one of the biggest reasons obviously is that he continuously shows them up by getting everything he promises done and then he calls them out for their childish behavior. Then he is relentless in calling out the liberal left media. Yes he probably does toot is own horn a bit too much but if he doesn't do it who else will? The left gives him absolutely no credit for doing absolutely anything right. Then despite all their resistance, obstruction and endless investigations he is the energizer bunny and on making great accomplishments.

    I stand with and by the President, but I am not alone in this thought, this tweeting has caused him more problems than a barrel of monkey in a spa.
    Then comes along his helpmate Rudy and hes out there pulling Joe Biden. .I.m not say that Rudy is not for the President but Good Lord, why does he have to be on every TV show spouting off about what he does and doesn't have. If you have it Rudy keep your mouth shut and them hit them with it. Stop Rudy, your not doing the President or any of us who has to listen to you day after day. Your mouth is out of control. You and Joe both have foot in mouth disease.

    Is there anywhere you can find the truth anymore? Nothing makes sense. They are vigorously pursuing Giuliani because he apparently could not say with 100% certainty what President Trump said to Ukrainian President Zelensky, but when Joe Biden says he held up a billion dollars in aid because the Ukrainians would not fire a certain prosecutor, they ignore that.

    I can't believe anything I hear from anyone because while there may be a grain of truth in what some are saying, there is no consistency except for one primary thought which hasn't changed from Nov 8th, 2016 - impeach Trump for something. I for one am growing weary of this.

    If the whole basis for the initial investigation was not proven, why are not heads rolling for the actions that were taken by people in power in DC to make that happen. Why are (seemingly) only conservatives accountable, while everyone else gets a free pass.

    Surely I am not alone in these thoughts.

    After watching another edition of the “Circus in the Swamp,” I have a couple of requests for you the next time I am in Washington D.C. Could one or more of you arrange:
    1. A Tour of the facility where they remove your moral compass before you can go to work!
    2. Enrollment in the class where they teach you to lie with a straight face and never blink while making up stories? I want to compete with Adam Schiff and anyone named Clinton. Of course there a lot of practitioners in D.C.
    Speaking of outrageous lies. Adam Schiff is the Poster Boy for Congressional Liars, Leakers and Attention Seekers. Shifty, as we call him, was an absolute disgrace to this country as the supposed Chair of the Intelligence Committee. His lying “parody” of the Trump telephone call was designed to influence the stupid among us and convince them the President committed a crime. A total fabrication! Saul Alinski (Patron Saint of the Democrat Party) and Joseph Goebbels would be proud! Keep repeating lies often and loudly!
    This man and his sidekick and Sock Puppet, Eric Swalwell, have repeatedly lied to the American people for about 3 years about Russian Collusion claiming that they have evidence that is never produced. There is only one purpose and it is not honorable!
    It is time that there are consequences. If the Speaker had a backbone and a clear understanding of right and wrong, both Schiff and Swalwell would be removed from any role in any Congressional Committee! In fact, Schiff at minimum should be forced to resign.

    A ex CIA person said President Trump needs to have the CIA investigated, there are a lot of Obama hold overs helping the Democrats.

    It is with regret that I have to admit to myself that I do believe Trump was using his call for his political purposes. I tried to work around it but cannot. I am not sure he even realized that he shouldn’t do that. I am sure IN business this was part of negotiating. Impeachable, I think not. But he gave the Dems what they were looking for on a silver platter. For a smart man he can be ridiculously naive or stupid. However, compared to what Biden actually did when VP! this transgression pales. But this is only one of many double standards. Since Hilary was excused because she intended no harms , surely this instance of bad judgement can be forgiven. I Have alwayS looked to you To be critical if due, even of Trump, but I think you missed the mark here.

    Wish news outlets would also take a two week break and spare us the incessant impeach, Ukraine, fear for my life whistleblower stuff. I'll just take a break from any news outlet for a while.

    So, I am wondering-is the newest, latest thing that film makers, actors will have to run scripts past some designated liberal left personage (probably "the boss" ocasio) to determine whether or not it passes the leftist muster? And, if the "request" is nixed--I guess they will be shunned by the loud, extreme anti-Trump hoolywood crowd, AND expelled from the democrat party if they go ahead with said film? lol

    I hope the regular, more moderate democrats get the picture that the extremists are going to throw them under the bus and stand up to them instead of quaking in their boots, or joining the extremism?

    Your comment about Nancy Pelosi's love for the Constitution evoked, FROM me, my repeated question as to why Christians (who can SEE how her love for commands that were written by man makes a mockery of the commands written by God...THE founding FATHER of our country)...don't cry out AGAINST the mockery that is being made of the God we love! by Nancy and all the other Democrats!

    I am so sick and tired of watching TV and reading anything about this Impeachment! I can't believe that there is not something that can be done about Congress. So they went home for 2 weeks, they were just there for about a month, they DO NOTHING at home or in D.C. I have never heard of Rep. Phil Roe he must not be around us over here in E. TN.
    How can President Trump go wrong with Victoria, Joe, Jay and Rudy! I love them all and think they are the best Attorney's in our Country! The Dems lie all the time and I could have told you weeks ago, that George Soros was involved in this since Shifty Schiff is mouthing off. He is related to Soros by marriage or something and when Schiff is involved then Soro's is there too! Soros pulls the strings on a lot of those people like Pelosiand also Paul Ryan! Not sure about all the Republicans. We should have someone following the money! I guess all we can do for Trump is Hope and Pray everything will turn out for the best for him and America because they are definitely trying to turn us into a Socialist or Communist Country!

    Is it coincidence that Biden announced his candidacy four days after conservative Zelensky was elected? Trump/Rudy had been looking into Ukraine since January according to NYT. But Biden can now claim Trump is using a foreign government against a political opponent.

    I just wish that we, "the Deplorable Americans", that voted for President Trump and appreciate all that he has already done, had a way of letting him know we stand with him. Not to mention,he has done it without much help from Congress. We have a "do nothing" bunch of people in Washington including some of the Republicans. All we can do is pray for our President, but I hope he knows that we are praying. I pray that the Lord will give him strength. He wanted to help our country.. I don't think he had a clue how nasty these people are!
    Thank you for letting me vent!

    I have commented recently about avoiding the Media Propaganda outlets while I rant about their dishonesty I wonder how many people are listening to what the media is saying, people are working people are performing in their work places they are concentrating for the most part their tasks do I think they are thinking of the often wrong Adam Schiff or what Pelosi is saying I have finished lunch I don't wish to destroy the celebration of eating thinking about dishonest people like that. No they could care less these people are a waste of time. Mike if you get a chance could you relay a message for me to Schiff Leahy Durban Schumer you know the dishonest people that called for the Russian Investigation ( How did that work out) Mueller conducted was a hoax just a friendly reminder to those dishonest people; for the most part being a Human, Honesty is not bad policy; Yea they made a lot of money dishonestly when I see them they always look unhappy, you may tell them nicely they are REAL LOSERS!! Thanks Mike

    Sir, I read with interest your Monday Fake News article. While reading through the article's link to FOX News I notice a quote that caught my interest. I am copying it here and would like a clarification of it if possible. "The letter said, in part, "The purpose of this letter is to formally notify you of serious concerns we have regarding our client’s personal safety. We appreciate your office’s support thus far to activate appropriate resources to ensure their safety.""

    Can you or someone please explain what was meant by the terms "ensure their safety". To me that means that there is either more that one person that is a “whistleblower” or the legal team is also endanger and needs/has federal protection.

    Thank you for any response you can provide to this question to help me understand their claim against CBS's Sixty Minutes.

    Against my better judgment, I took a couple of seconds to watch Representative Sheila Jackson (D - Texas) describe her experience holding an AR15.

    "It weighs about as much as ten boxes (of what - matches?)"( actual weight 6.5 lbs)", she claimed/. "It fires a .50 caliber bullet (actual ,223 caliber), some of which have 'heat seeking' devices on their tip that will cook a deer if you hit it" (??), she continued.

    My first thought was she was doing a parody. But then it hit me!

    The whole democrat party is a parody of the once great party of Harry Truman, Sam Nunn and John Kennedy. When we watch the circuses masquerading as committee hearings, we are watching the National Lampoon version of Congress!

    I just saw a post saying the whistleblower rules were recently changed. It allows a person not to have to witness something firsthand. They can report rumors. Is that true? If yes, this will begin the daily whistler report. ??

    fortunately Mike, I have other forms of entertainment. Every time I see Nadler, I wish I had a cricket bat so I could hit him. nancy? well she needs a cage. Warren, a clear and present danger, she needs to be treated according to law. Don't her actions warrant a charge of sedition?, Treason. Willful take over and destruction of the present form of government, totalitarianism. Isn't there a penalty anywhere for those advocacys? the people who do value the constitution? Are NOT libs, they speak loud and clear, especially in the house. And they are "mad as hell" FB quote. Why bother the enemy when they are in the process of destroying themselves. They are terrified, that's why there is this insanity. Judgement is coming and it is inescapable. God is in charge, not them.
