"Al Green is a gift from God,” said Trey Gowdy to Ed Henry on Thursday’s THE STORY, “and we should buy him time during the Super Bowl so he just keeps talking.”
Rep. Green filed an impeachment resolution against President Trump two years ago, long before the special counsel investigation was completed and the tepid Mueller report was released. But that didn't matter. As Trey Gowdy pointed out, 60 Democrats in Congress actually joined with him. Evidence, shmevidence, who needs that? And all these months later, they still have no evidence and still push for impeachment.
But one thing about someone with as big a mouth as Al Green’s: he can be counted on to occasionally and unwittingly spew a little truth, as when he said the President had to be impeached or he'd get re-elected. (He also said a President could be impeached more than once.) Thank you, Rep. Green, for unthinkingly admitting what Democrats are really up to with this impeachment business. They’ve been working on this nonstop ever since Trump was inaugurated --- even before he was. They know they can’t get this Senate to convict Trump --- especially with ZERO evidence and a ridiculous case based on hearsay and “presumption” --- but they can try to use the issue as a wedge to defeat some Senate Republicans.
Final thoughts on 2019
By Mike Huckabee
On this last day of the year (and the decade!), many people are looking back at 2019. I would hope that a lot of them, particularly on the left, would reflect on how unbelievably well-off America is – unemployment at all-time lows, wages rising, stock markets booming, gas cheap, trade deals being renegotiated in our favor at long last, violent crime down, terrorists on the run, no new wars (and soldiers finally coming home from seemingly endless ones), food healthier and plentiful, and even the environment much cleaner than a few decades ago (unless you live in a Democrat-run city and have to dodge poop and typhus) – and ask themselves one question:
“Why exactly am I constantly complaining about how horrible everything is?
In fact, can you imagine what a Golden Age 2019 would have felt like if we hadn’t had to endure the constant whining, sniping, screaming, cursing, crying, protesting and “resisting”? What are they even resisting? Happiness?
As we stand at the crossroads, assessing the recent past and reflecting on the future, I thought I’d share a few of the more interesting commentaries, the ones you aren’t likely to see in the mainstream media.
I’ll start with one that I’m sure pains the talking heads at CNN, MSNBC, etc., to report: Gallup reports that there’s a tie for the title of Most Admired Man of 2019 between Barack Obama and Donald Trump.
I wanted to make sure you also read these comments:
Say, remember that fiercely urgent impeachment that had to be passed before Christmas, only to have Nancy Pelosi let it sit on the shelf like an elf until after New Year’s? If that was designed to damage Trump’s reelection prospects, it’s not working according to plan. Since Democrats seem to want to impeach Trump for something different every day, he might want to encourage them to go ahead and do just that. He’ll be the first President to turn impeachment into a major profit center.
The most criminally-overlooked story of 2019 that suddenly became news in the last month: the rising tide of anti-Semitic attacks in the deep blue New York City area that had already been going on throughout the year:
Considering the disregard for enforcing laws or showing respect to police that have marked the unnecessary decline of the Big Apple under Mayor Bill DeBlasio, the rising crime and violence are hardly surprising. But never underestimate the ability of the left to take a terrible situation of their creation and make it far worse with the application of some grand, sweeping, radical, idiotic idea. Don’t believe it? How about their latest brainstorm: “Abolish the police!” Yes, that will finally make places like Chicago, Baltimore and Seattle safe: removing the police entirely.
Seriously, did these people grow up eating lead paint chips?

out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding."
