 The New Sheriff has led by example

President Trump and the Republican Congress have been diligently reversing the Obama legacy of slow growth, sluggish job creation, weak foreign policy and military leadership, and crushing government regulations.  But one legacy of that era has been largely overlooked and is stubbornly “resistant” to reversal, yet they’re finally attacking it, too.  It's the legacy of no consequences for irresponsible and even illegal actions if done in the service of advancing “progressivism.” 

I know from reading my comments section that conservatives are disheartened about the investigation into deep state political corruption under Obama because they fear nobody will ever be held accountable.  No matter how in-your-face the corruption might be, from the IRS targeting Tea Party groups to Wall Street bankers who helped crash the economy escaping with platinum parachutes; from FBI insiders working like termites to undermine Trump’s campaign and presidency to Hillary Clinton being allowed to skate away from charges of mishandling classified information that would have gotten anyone else thrown under the prison; from celebrities and politicians threatening violence against the President to migrant caravans openly vowing to invade the US en masse to Antifa thugs assaulting people and property while blue city police are ordered to stand down, it seems that if you are well-connected enough, rich enough or far-left enough, there are no consequences for any behavior, no matter how rotten.

It got to the point that when President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey for perfectly sound reasons, and even though he had the power to fire him for any reason at all, Trump was the one put under investigation.   

 

Well, the new sheriff has been in town for two years now, and his deputies have finally grown a backbone and started following his lead.  The Kavanaugh hearings were the catalyst: Democrats blatantly assaulted the very concept of due process and innocent-until-proven-guilty in a way that finally shocked Republican politicians and many voters into realizing that if they would do it to someone with a reputation as spotless as Kavanaugh’s, then they would do it to anyone.    

 

Now, at long last, Republicans are once again starting to hold people to account for their actions.  Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has referred sleazy attorney Michael Avenatti and his client Julie Swetnick to the Justice Department for criminal investigation relating to a “potential conspiracy to provide materially false statements to Congress.”  Grassley says the suspicious timing of the release of her dubious claim of Kavanaugh running a high-school “drug-and-gang rape” ring wasted Congress’ time and appears to be in violation of federal law prohibiting making false statements and obstructing congressional committee investigations.

Let’s hope this new resolve to enforce laws and to send the message that “if it feels good, do it” is over and harsh consequences for illegality are back has also filtered into Jeff Sessions’ sleepy Justice Department.  He needs to deliver the message far and wide, from political hitmen to “migrant caravan” organizers -- and especially to anyone who thought it was acceptable to aim threats and violence against people for their political beliefs, whether they be “social justice warriors” attacking speakers on campus or whoever is behind mailing pipe bombs to Democrats. 

 

 Changes in attitude

On the subject of current events leading to welcome changes in attitude: Hillary Clinton has now decided that civility in politics is a good thing:

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/hillary-calls-civility-2-weeks-earlier-said-no-civility-til-dems-back-power/

And just one day after printing a disgusting and irresponsible assassination fantasy about President Trump, the New York Times reacted to the pipe bomb story by pulling a 180 and calling for a return to civility.  Interestingly enough, both pieces blamed the incivility in politics entirely on that awful Trump fellow.  Just as CNN is already blaming Trump for the pipe bomb mailings, even though at this writing, authorities still have no idea where they came from.  Well, I guess for some people, self-awareness comes in baby steps…

 About that Arkansas lynching ad

I've long warned that the danger for Democrats in using identity politics to divide and conquer is that the groups they set against each other will eventually notice that the pandering to another group is coming at their own expense.  I’ve pointed out the many ways in which the Party’s pandering to the LGBTQ movement has shoved women’s rights to the back of the line.  Now, African-Americans are feeling understandable concern about the Democrats’ abandonment of due process and changing presumption-of-innocence to presumption-of-guilt in the MeToo era.

 

In Arkansas, a PAC called Black Americans for the President’s Agenda is running an ad on that very topic on black-oriented radio stations, to oppose Democratic Congressional candidate Clarke Tucker.  In it, two African-American women talk about the Brett Kavanaugh accusations.  One says, “If they can do that to a white justice of the Supreme Court, with no evidence, no corroboration, and all of her witnesses, including her best friend, saying it didn’t happen, what will happen to our husbands, our fathers, or our sons, when a white girl lies on them?”  The other responds, “Girl, white Democrats will be lynching black folk again.”  The announcer later adds, “We can’t afford to let white Democrats take us back to the bad old days of race verdicts, life sentences, and lynchings when a white girl screams rape.”

 

Both Tucker and his rival, GOP Rep. French Hill, condemned the ad as “disgraceful” and “appalling” and called for it to be taken off the air.  It is hard to believe that copy made it past the first draft stage. Invoking the horrors of lynchings in a political ad is so far over the line that you can’t even see the line behind you. 

 

But the leader of the PAC, Vernon Robinson (an African-American who led a movement in 2016 to draft Ben Carson for President) is standing by it.  He claims that in the black community, all mothers warn their sons that if they date a white girl and she gets angry, she may cry rape and “you’ll be toast.” 

 

That may be blunt, ugly, unfair, politically incorrect to say, shocking to hear, and possibly racist and sexist – but it’s also undeniably true that the suspicion exists, and there’s historical basis for it.  Black men have long faced false accusations of rape and racist legal systems stacked against them. Only about 12% of the US population is African-American, yet the Innocence Project reports that 60% of the wrongly-convicted prisoners they’ve gotten released with DNA evidence were black. 

 

Even if this particular ad, with its offensive use of the word “lynching" and other incendiary language and the accusations of nefarious racial motives, is yanked, the fact remains that the black community has good reason to be wary of the left's attempts to undermine due process and the presumption of innocence.  This didn’t start with Kavanaugh or even the MeToo movement: liberal colleges have for years been stripping away the due process rights of males accused of sexual assault.  Some of the more famous cases include the Duke lacrosse team and the UVA frat slandered by Rolling Stone. In those cases, the race of the accused wasn’t even a factor: they were all treated as guilty until they proved themselves innocent.  

 

Until Democrats learn that we should respect and defend the civil rights of all Americans and not strip them away from one group to benefit another, they must expect that playing identity groups off against each other for political gain is a dangerous and divisive tactic that’s likely to come back and bite them.

 Bipartisan agreement

At last, a little bipartisan agreement: President Trump said, “I agree 100% with President Obama” on the problem of unchecked illegal immigration.  Of course, he was actually referring to what Obama said about it when he was an Illinois Senator who wanted to be elected President, not what he said after he actually became President.  Proving once again that the Internet is the “permanent record” your school guidance counselor warned you about, times 100.

    If I was guarding the border and the caravan was trying to force the issue to enter illegally, and I had shoot at them, I would aim at all legs. If the illegals can’t walk they can’t cross the boarder.

    Please I encourage everyone to vote Republican. No vote is in effect literally a vote for the Democrat!! If we don’t vote or vote other than Republican, then we’re voting for everything that God’s against!! If the Democrats get the Senate & the House, there won’t be a USA, religious freedom, freedom of speech, or jobs and the country will be over-run by lawless bureaucrats, violence, population totally dependent on government hand-outs, poor healthcare with long lines, shoddy education, and lives controlled by fear of every kind!! This Nation will become a God-forsaken country!!

    Daily, at my request on www.whitehouse.gov, I get newsletter from the White House. These FACT SHEETS were issued from the White House and I’m copying it here for Evening Edition senior readers. Hope these will help to calm your nerves seeing what’s really going on and be at peace and with great confidence go and vote for Republican House and Senate and for our hard-working, promise-keeping, patriotic “fighter” and a great President, President Trump!!

    FACT SHEETS presented by the White House
    Congressional Democrats Want to Take Away Your Doctor, Outlaw Your Private Insurance, and Put Bureaucrats In Charge of Your Healthcare
    HEALTHCARE Issued on: October 16, 2018

    QUOTE
    “We oppose efforts from Democrats to raid Medicare to fund socialism, robbing seniors of their benefits.” President Donald J. Trump

    CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS LIED ABOUT YOUR HEALTHCARE BEFORE: Democrats made false promises to sell Americans on Obamacare.
    • Democrats told Americans if “you like your plan, you can keep it.”
    o 4.7 million Americans saw their plans canceled in Obamacare’s first year.
    • Democrats told Americans they could keep their doctor if they liked them.
    o President Obama admitted families would have to “make choices” to keep their doctor.
    • President Obama promised families that Obamacare would cut $2,500 in premiums.
    o Average individual market premiums more than doubled from 2013 to 2017.

    THEY ARE LYING NOW: Just like they did with Obamacare, Democrats will say anything to sell a radical Government takeover of your healthcare that they call “Medicare for All.”
    • Democrats like Chuck Schumer are trying to hide that “Medicare for All” would end private insurance, claiming it is “not true.”
    o Senator Schumer should read Bernie Sanders’ legislation, which states, “It shall be unlawful for— (1) a private health insurer to sell health insurance coverage that duplicates the benefits provided under this Act…”
    o The House Democrats’ bill states, “It is unlawful for a private health insurer to sell health insurance coverage that duplicates the benefits provided under this Act.”
    o Americans would have no choice in their own insurer and be forced onto Medicare.
    • Democrats are claiming seniors would not lose benefits under “Medicare for All.”
    o In reality, popular Medicare Advantage plans enjoyed by more than 20 million seniors would be outlawed under the Democrat plan.
    • Congressional Democrats are telling American seniors “Medicare for All” is not a threat, yet their radical plan comes with a price tag that would jeopardize seniors’ benefits.
    o Their plan rations healthcare with additional and stricter government price controls.
    o Their plan requires large payment cuts to doctors and hospitals, leading to hospital closures, fewer doctors, and less care for seniors.
    o This would not be the first time the Democrats abandoned our seniors, having cut Medicare spending by $800 billion.

    GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER: Democrats are proposing radical Government takeover of healthcare that would devastate the future of our country.
    • With an obscene $32 trillion in ten years price tag, even significant tax increases would not pay for the Congressional Democrats’ Government healthcare takeover.
    • The Democrats’ radical Government takeover would destroy America’s healthcare system, put Washington bureaucrats in charge, and leave Americans with no real choice in coverage.
    o Quality healthcare will plummet and wait times will skyrocket.
    o Private competition would be eliminated.
    o Medical innovation would be decimated, depriving patients of lifesaving cures.
    • In a telling show of his lack of respect for American taxpayers, Senator Schumer did not even deny their plan would use taxpayer money to fund Government healthcare for illegal aliens.

    Fact Sheets presented by the White House
    Congressional Democrats Want to Take Money from Hardworking Americans to Fund Failed Socialist Policies
    Healthcare Issued on: October 23, 2018

    Quote
    “From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure.” - President Donald J. Trump

    DESTRUCTIVE ECONOMIC POLICIES: Under socialist economic policies, Americans can expect their incomes to fall and their economic freedom to vanish.
    • Radical Congressional Democrats are pushing the socialist policies of “Medicare for All,” high tax rates, and “free” public services, while ignoring the huge cost of these policies.
    • Families earning the average annual wage of $60,588 would be taxed up to $5,000 more per year, after cash transfers, if the United States adopted the tax and transfer policies of Nordic countries that Congressional Democrats often tout.
    • Socialism’s higher taxes (including on businesses) and controls on factors of production lead to a loss of economic freedom that has devastating consequences for production.
    o Replacing United States policies with highly socialist ones, like in Venezuela, would reduce real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by at least 40 percent in the long run.

    “MEDICARE FOR ALL” IS RADICAL AND DANGEROUS: The Democrats’ socialist ”Medicare for All” plan would devastate the American healthcare market and lead to higher taxes.
    • The Democrats’ disastrous ”Medicare for All” plan distributes healthcare for “free,” by creating a government monopoly on healthcare markets and setting all prices paid to suppliers.
    o Under this policy, doctors, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies would have no choice but to accept whatever the government decides to pay for their services.
    o Consumers, likewise, would have no choice but to use government-directed options.
    • The high taxes needed to fund “Medicare for All” would lead to a decline in household incomes of $17,000 annually after taxes and healthcare expenditures, a 19 percent decline.
    • Without higher taxes, funding the Democrats’ plan would require cuts to half of the Federal budget as it stands today wrecking Medicaid, Social Security, and traditional Medicare.
    • Evidence on the effectiveness of single-payer systems suggests that a “Medicare for All” plan would reduce the longevity and health of Americans, despite greater insurance coverage.

    A DUBIOUS LEGACY: Socialist policies have a long legacy of failure across the world.
    • The legacy of countries that have implemented large-scale socialist policies is one of failed policies, misery, and death.
    o Even in less-extreme cases, socialist policies have reduced standards of living.
    • Socialist countries like Maoist China, Cuba, and the Soviet Union seized control of agriculture wrecking their food production and causing tens of millions of deaths by starvation.
    • Venezuela’s socialist experiment has been a complete failure. Today, Venezuelans are beset by out-of-control inflation, lack of basic resources, and rampant crime, starvation, and death.
    • Research suggests that even Nordic countries, who are often pointed to as examples of successful socialist experiments, have been hurt by their use of socialist policies:
    o The living standards of Nordic countries are at least 15 percent lower than in the United States, despite the abundance of “free” government services.
    o If the United States had adopted Nordic-like policies in the 1970s, then our real GDP would be almost 20 percent lower today.
    The White House

    I agree with Grace Mulloy’s assessment of the Red Cross. It doesn’t distribute our contributions well enough – I’m afraid quite a lot of it on its way out, gets trapped in the echelon’s pockets!! Moreover, its sympathies aren’t extended to Israel! It doesn’t have its original Christian flavor!

    The “Refugees” from the Central America are not refugees. They don’t have the look of people who really suffered in their countries – in general they look well-fed, healthy, strong but very aggressive. There are more young able-bodied men of fighting age than women & children. Some do have the looks of middle-eastern men instead of South American/ Central American! (I did live in the middle east for a number of years). It looks more like an invading army than frightened, oppressed, ill-treated, safety-seeking civilians – although some of them are civilians seeking better life! I wouldn’t be surprised if 50% of the men are more of a fighting mind or bent toward violence of some kind. I pray that they’re not.

    The Democrats who doesn’t really care about the Country, the Constitution, God’s Laws, or the ordinary American and so they won’t hesitate to spend our American tax dollars and who knows perhaps they’ll dip into our Social Security & Medicare for the upkeep of illegal immigrants who are encouraged by the Democrats to keep coming in hordes for lack of stricter commonsense Immigration Laws, and the Border Wall and Amnesty for all!! According to statistics (https://www.fairus.org/issue/publications-resources/fiscal-burden-illegal-immigration-united-states-taxpayers; https://amac.us/illegal-immigration-cost-1/). Where will this end? – till US is over-run and becomes a 3rd-World country, another Venezuela, Cuba, Haiti, Honduras with poverty, misery, without freedom and oppressive governments?

    It costs us $134 billion to take care of them each year. In taxes, perhaps they contribute between $18 & 19 billion. This means that we spend around $116 billion out of our pockets to take care of the illegals each year. The Border Wall costs only about $16 - 25 billion! This is almost nothing compared to the $116 billion!!

    So, please, pray for our President, the Congress, DOJ, Supreme Court, and write to your Senators and Representatives to pass the budget to build the Border Wall, pass the strict commonsense Immigration Laws, etc. Thank you, God bless you all. May He give us His wisdom, discernment, and hope. Please pray that the Lord in His Grace and power will cause with whichever means the Lord see fit for these people to change their minds and return home rather than proceed to the US border and prevent us/ President from forcing our/his hand (to be used against him by his enemies) and turn everything into our and President’s favour and put all our opponents to shame!

    I remember reading long time ago in a history-related book about some of the tactics used – have some members of your own group dressed up as the enemy’s party and fly the enemy’s flag and attack your own people to create an incident – stage an attack – to justify a war with your enemy for whatever the real reason may be. And so, the thought did occur to me, perhaps the Democrat themselves staged the attack on their own people pretending it to be the Republicans doing it to them and get President Trump framed for it!! I know it sounds crazy, but Democrats won’t hesitate and are ready to do anything – even violent things because they hate Trump and his supporters that much!! To them, it’s not love for God, country or family that counts anymore!

    Did you read Rush Limbaugh's interview in his Oct. 2018 "The Limbaugh Letter" with Sidney Powell about her book "Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice"? Please do if you haven't. I've ordered the updated book myself. I've two recommendations for President Trump. 1) After the election have her installed as the new Attorney General. and 2) when she has totally cleaned house nominate her to the Supreme Court.

    I've noticed that as of late the ads the Democrats are running do not carry anything identifying them as such. We just get to listen to their spiel of all the wonderful things they will do for us if they get elected. Also, on the mob of illegals heading for our country.......when my grandfather applied for citizenship in 1933 he was given a seven page list of questions (with supplied answers) to study that he would be required to answer when he went back for his final test. The first six dealt with our official name of country, what the stars, stripes and colors of our flag represented, and the remaining ninety--nine concerned our country's history. It makes for an interesting read. He passed and obtained his citizenship on April 10, 1933. Also, back then, incoming immigrants needed a sponsor. Someone that could feed and house them until they found a job and could move out on their own. They were also "vetted" before being allowed entry to the U.S.A. Has anyone else besides myself noticed all these new and recurring diseases cropping up again since we've had this influx of immigrants?

If we don’t vote or vote other than Republican, then we’re voting for everything that God’s against!! If the Democrats get the Senate & the House, there won’t be a USA, religious freedom, freedom of speech, or jobs and the country will be over-run by lawless bureaucrats, violence, population totally dependent on government hand-outs, poor healthcare with long lines, shoddy education, and lives controlled by fear of every kind!! This Nation will become a God-forsaken country!!

    Daily, at my request on www.whitehouse.gov, I get newsletter from the White House. These FACT SHEETS were issued from the White House and I’m copying it here for Evening Edition senior readers. Hope these will help to calm your nerves seeing what’s really going on and be at peace and with great confidence go and vote for Republican House and Senate and for our hard-working, promise-keeping, patriotic “fighter” and a great President, President Trump!!

    FACT SHEETS presented by the White House
    Congressional Democrats Want to Take Away Your Doctor, Outlaw Your Private Insurance, and Put Bureaucrats In Charge of Your Healthcare
    HEALTHCARE Issued on: October 16, 2018

    QUOTE
    “We oppose efforts from Democrats to raid Medicare to fund socialism, robbing seniors of their benefits.” President Donald J. Trump

    CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS LIED ABOUT YOUR HEALTHCARE BEFORE: Democrats made false promises to sell Americans on Obamacare.
    • Democrats told Americans if “you like your plan, you can keep it.”
    o 4.7 million Americans saw their plans canceled in Obamacare’s first year.
    • Democrats told Americans they could keep their doctor if they liked them.
    o President Obama admitted families would have to “make choices” to keep their doctor.
    • President Obama promised families that Obamacare would cut $2,500 in premiums.
    o Average individual market premiums more than doubled from 2013 to 2017.

    THEY ARE LYING NOW: Just like they did with Obamacare, Democrats will say anything to sell a radical Government takeover of your healthcare that they call “Medicare for All.”
    • Democrats like Chuck Schumer are trying to hide that “Medicare for All” would end private insurance, claiming it is “not true.”
    o Senator Schumer should read Bernie Sanders’ legislation, which states, “It shall be unlawful for— (1) a private health insurer to sell health insurance coverage that duplicates the benefits provided under this Act…”
    o The House Democrats’ bill states, “It is unlawful for a private health insurer to sell health insurance coverage that duplicates the benefits provided under this Act.”
    o Americans would have no choice in their own insurer and be forced onto Medicare.
    • Democrats are claiming seniors would not lose benefits under “Medicare for All.”
    o In reality, popular Medicare Advantage plans enjoyed by more than 20 million seniors would be outlawed under the Democrat plan.
    • Congressional Democrats are telling American seniors “Medicare for All” is not a threat, yet their radical plan comes with a price tag that would jeopardize seniors’ benefits.
    o Their plan rations healthcare with additional and stricter government price controls.
    o Their plan requires large payment cuts to doctors and hospitals, leading to hospital closures, fewer doctors, and less care for seniors.
    o This would not be the first time the Democrats abandoned our seniors, having cut Medicare spending by $800 billion.

    GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER: Democrats are proposing radical Government takeover of healthcare that would devastate the future of our country.
    • With an obscene $32 trillion in ten years price tag, even significant tax increases would not pay for the Congressional Democrats’ Government healthcare takeover.
    • The Democrats’ radical Government takeover would destroy America’s healthcare system, put Washington bureaucrats in charge, and leave Americans with no real choice in coverage.
    o Quality healthcare will plummet and wait times will skyrocket.
    o Private competition would be eliminated.
    o Medical innovation would be decimated, depriving patients of lifesaving cures.
    • In a telling show of his lack of respect for American taxpayers, Senator Schumer did not even deny their plan would use taxpayer money to fund Government healthcare for illegal aliens.

    Fact Sheets presented by the White House
    Congressional Democrats Want to Take Money from Hardworking Americans to Fund Failed Socialist Policies
    Healthcare Issued on: October 23, 2018

    Quote
    “From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure.” - President Donald J. Trump

    DESTRUCTIVE ECONOMIC POLICIES: Under socialist economic policies, Americans can expect their incomes to fall and their economic freedom to vanish.
    • Radical Congressional Democrats are pushing the socialist policies of “Medicare for All,” high tax rates, and “free” public services, while ignoring the huge cost of these policies.
    • Families earning the average annual wage of $60,588 would be taxed up to $5,000 more per year, after cash transfers, if the United States adopted the tax and transfer policies of Nordic countries that Congressional Democrats often tout.
    • Socialism’s higher taxes (including on businesses) and controls on factors of production lead to a loss of economic freedom that has devastating consequences for production.
    o Replacing United States policies with highly socialist ones, like in Venezuela, would reduce real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by at least 40 percent in the long run.

    “MEDICARE FOR ALL” IS RADICAL AND DANGEROUS: The Democrats’ socialist ”Medicare for All” plan would devastate the American healthcare market and lead to higher taxes.
    • The Democrats’ disastrous ”Medicare for All” plan distributes healthcare for “free,” by creating a government monopoly on healthcare markets and setting all prices paid to suppliers.
    o Under this policy, doctors, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies would have no choice but to accept whatever the government decides to pay for their services.
    o Consumers, likewise, would have no choice but to use government-directed options.
    • The high taxes needed to fund “Medicare for All” would lead to a decline in household incomes of $17,000 annually after taxes and healthcare expenditures, a 19 percent decline.
    • Without higher taxes, funding the Democrats’ plan would require cuts to half of the Federal budget as it stands today wrecking Medicaid, Social Security, and traditional Medicare.
    • Evidence on the effectiveness of single-payer systems suggests that a “Medicare for All” plan would reduce the longevity and health of Americans, despite greater insurance coverage.

    A DUBIOUS LEGACY: Socialist policies have a long legacy of failure across the world.
    • The legacy of countries that have implemented large-scale socialist policies is one of failed policies, misery, and death.
    o Even in less-extreme cases, socialist policies have reduced standards of living.
    • Socialist countries like Maoist China, Cuba, and the Soviet Union seized control of agriculture wrecking their food production and causing tens of millions of deaths by starvation.
    • Venezuela’s socialist experiment has been a complete failure. Today, Venezuelans are beset by out-of-control inflation, lack of basic resources, and rampant crime, starvation, and death.
    • Research suggests that even Nordic countries, who are often pointed to as examples of successful socialist experiments, have been hurt by their use of socialist policies:
    o The living standards of Nordic countries are at least 15 percent lower than in the United States, despite the abundance of “free” government services.
    o If the United States had adopted Nordic-like policies in the 1970s, then our real GDP would be almost 20 percent lower today.

    I agree with Grace Mulloy’s assessment of the Red Cross. It doesn’t distribute our contributions well enough – I’m afraid quite a lot of it on its way out, gets trapped in the echelon’s pockets!! Moreover, its sympathies aren’t extended to Israel! It doesn’t have its original Christian flavor!

    The “Refugees” from the Central America are not refugees. They don’t have the look of people who really suffered in their countries – in general they look well-fed, healthy, strong but very aggressive. There are more young able-bodied men of fighting age than women & children. Some do have the looks of middle-eastern men instead of South American/ Central American! (I did live in the middle east for a number of years). It looks more like an invading army than frightened, oppressed, ill-treated, safety-seeking civilians – although some of them are civilians seeking better life! I wouldn’t be surprised if 50% of the men are more of a fighting mind or bent toward violence of some kind. I pray that they’re not.

    The Democrats who doesn’t really care about the Country, the Constitution, God’s Laws, or the ordinary American and so they won’t hesitate to spend our American tax dollars and who knows perhaps they’ll dip into our Social Security & Medicare for the upkeep of illegal immigrants who are encouraged by the Democrats to keep coming in hordes for lack of stricter commonsense Immigration Laws, and the Border Wall and Amnesty for all!! According to statistics (https://www.fairus.org/issue/publications-resources/fiscal-burden-illegal-immigration-united-states-taxpayers; https://amac.us/illegal-immigration-cost-1/). Where will this end? – till US is over-run and becomes a 3rd-World country, another Venezuela, Cuba, Haiti, Honduras with poverty, misery, without freedom and oppressive governments?

    It costs us $134 billion to take care of them each year. In taxes, perhaps they contribute between $18 & 19 billion. This means that we spend around $116 billion out of our pockets to take care of the illegals each year. The Border Wall costs only about $16 - 25 billion! This is almost nothing compared to the $116 billion!!

    So, please, pray for our President, the Congress, DOJ, Supreme Court, and write to your Senators and Representatives to pass the budget to build the Border Wall, pass the strict commonsense Immigration Laws, etc. Thank you, God bless you all. May He give us His wisdom, discernment, and hope. Please pray that the Lord in His Grace and power will cause with whichever means the Lord see fit for these people to change their minds and return home rather than proceed to the US border and prevent us/ President from forcing our/his hand (to be used against him by his enemies) and turn everything into our and President’s favour and put all our opponents to shame!

    I remember reading long time ago in a history-related book about some of the tactics used – have some members of your own group dressed up as the enemy’s party and fly the enemy’s flag and attack your own people to create an incident – stage an attack – to justify a war with your enemy for whatever the real reason may be. And so, the thought did occur to me, perhaps the Democrat themselves staged the attack on their own people pretending it to be the Republicans doing it to them and get President Trump framed for it!! I know it sounds crazy, but Democrats won’t hesitate and are ready to do anything – even violent things because they hate Trump and his supporters that much!! To them, it’s not love for God, country or family that counts anymore!

And so, the thought did occur to me, perhaps the Democrat themselves staged the attack on their own people pretending it to be the Republicans doing it to them and get President Trump framed for it!! I know it sounds crazy, but Democrats won’t hesitate and are ready to do anything – even violent things because they hate Trump and his supporters that much!! To them, it’s not love for God, country or family that counts anymore!

    Please I encourage everyone to vote Republican. No vote is in effect literally a vote for the Democrat!! If we don’t vote or vote other than Republican, then we’re voting for everything that God’s against!! If the Democrats get the Senate & the House, there won’t be a USA, religious freedom, freedom of speech, or jobs and the country will be over-run by lawless bureaucrats, violence, population totally dependent on government hand-outs, poor healthcare with long lines, shoddy education, and lives controlled by fear of every kind!! This Nation will become a God-forsaken country!!

    Daily, at my request on www.whitehouse.gov, I get newsletter from the White House. These FACT SHEETS were issued from the White House and I’m copying it here for Evening Edition senior readers. Hope these will help to calm your nerves seeing what’s really going on and be at peace and with great confidence go and vote for Republican House and Senate and for our hard-working, promise-keeping, patriotic “fighter” and a great President, President Trump!!

    Congressional Democrats Want to Take Away Your Doctor, Outlaw Your Private Insurance, and Put Bureaucrats In Charge of Your Healthcare
    HEALTHCARE Issued on: October 16, 2018

    QUOTE
    “We oppose efforts from Democrats to raid Medicare to fund socialism, robbing seniors of their benefits.” President Donald J. Trump

    CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS LIED ABOUT YOUR HEALTHCARE BEFORE: Democrats made false promises to sell Americans on Obamacare.
    • Democrats told Americans if “you like your plan, you can keep it.”
    o 4.7 million Americans saw their plans canceled in Obamacare’s first year.
    • Democrats told Americans they could keep their doctor if they liked them.
    o President Obama admitted families would have to “make choices” to keep their doctor.
    • President Obama promised families that Obamacare would cut $2,500 in premiums.
    o Average individual market premiums more than doubled from 2013 to 2017.

    THEY ARE LYING NOW: Just like they did with Obamacare, Democrats will say anything to sell a radical Government takeover of your healthcare that they call “Medicare for All.”
    • Democrats like Chuck Schumer are trying to hide that “Medicare for All” would end private insurance, claiming it is “not true.”
    o Senator Schumer should read Bernie Sanders’ legislation, which states, “It shall be unlawful for— (1) a private health insurer to sell health insurance coverage that duplicates the benefits provided under this Act…”
    o The House Democrats’ bill states, “It is unlawful for a private health insurer to sell health insurance coverage that duplicates the benefits provided under this Act.”
    o Americans would have no choice in their own insurer and be forced onto Medicare.
    • Democrats are claiming seniors would not lose benefits under “Medicare for All.”
    o In reality, popular Medicare Advantage plans enjoyed by more than 20 million seniors would be outlawed under the Democrat plan.
    • Congressional Democrats are telling American seniors “Medicare for All” is not a threat, yet their radical plan comes with a price tag that would jeopardize seniors’ benefits.
    o Their plan rations healthcare with additional and stricter government price controls.
    o Their plan requires large payment cuts to doctors and hospitals, leading to hospital closures, fewer doctors, and less care for seniors.
    o This would not be the first time the Democrats abandoned our seniors, having cut Medicare spending by $800 billion.

    GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER: Democrats are proposing radical Government takeover of healthcare that would devastate the future of our country.
    • With an obscene $32 trillion in ten years price tag, even significant tax increases would not pay for the Congressional Democrats’ Government healthcare takeover.
    • The Democrats’ radical Government takeover would destroy America’s healthcare system, put Washington bureaucrats in charge, and leave Americans with no real choice in coverage.
    o Quality healthcare will plummet and wait times will skyrocket.
    o Private competition would be eliminated.
    o Medical innovation would be decimated, depriving patients of lifesaving cures.
    • In a telling show of his lack of respect for American taxpayers, Senator Schumer did not even deny their plan would use taxpayer money to fund Government healthcare for illegal aliens.

    Fact Sheets presented by the White House
    Congressional Democrats Want to Take Money from Hardworking Americans to Fund Failed Socialist Policies
    Healthcare Issued on: October 23, 2018

    Quote
    “From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure.” - President Donald J. Trump

    DESTRUCTIVE ECONOMIC POLICIES: Under socialist economic policies, Americans can expect their incomes to fall and their economic freedom to vanish.
    • Radical Congressional Democrats are pushing the socialist policies of “Medicare for All,” high tax rates, and “free” public services, while ignoring the huge cost of these policies.
    • Families earning the average annual wage of $60,588 would be taxed up to $5,000 more per year, after cash transfers, if the United States adopted the tax and transfer policies of Nordic countries that Congressional Democrats often tout.
    • Socialism’s higher taxes (including on businesses) and controls on factors of production lead to a loss of economic freedom that has devastating consequences for production.
    o Replacing United States policies with highly socialist ones, like in Venezuela, would reduce real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by at least 40 percent in the long run.

    “MEDICARE FOR ALL” IS RADICAL AND DANGEROUS: The Democrats’ socialist ”Medicare for All” plan would devastate the American healthcare market and lead to higher taxes.
    • The Democrats’ disastrous ”Medicare for All” plan distributes healthcare for “free,” by creating a government monopoly on healthcare markets and setting all prices paid to suppliers.
    o Under this policy, doctors, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies would have no choice but to accept whatever the government decides to pay for their services.
    o Consumers, likewise, would have no choice but to use government-directed options.
    • The high taxes needed to fund “Medicare for All” would lead to a decline in household incomes of $17,000 annually after taxes and healthcare expenditures, a 19 percent decline.
    • Without higher taxes, funding the Democrats’ plan would require cuts to half of the Federal budget as it stands today wrecking Medicaid, Social Security, and traditional Medicare.
    • Evidence on the effectiveness of single-payer systems suggests that a “Medicare for All” plan would reduce the longevity and health of Americans, despite greater insurance coverage.

    A DUBIOUS LEGACY: Socialist policies have a long legacy of failure across the world.
    • The legacy of countries that have implemented large-scale socialist policies is one of failed policies, misery, and death.
    o Even in less-extreme cases, socialist policies have reduced standards of living.
    • Socialist countries like Maoist China, Cuba, and the Soviet Union seized control of agriculture wrecking their food production and causing tens of millions of deaths by starvation.
    • Venezuela’s socialist experiment has been a complete failure. Today, Venezuelans are beset by out-of-control inflation, lack of basic resources, and rampant crime, starvation, and death.
    • Research suggests that even Nordic countries, who are often pointed to as examples of successful socialist experiments, have been hurt by their use of socialist policies:
    o The living standards of Nordic countries are at least 15 percent lower than in the United States, despite the abundance of “free” government services.
    o If the United States had adopted Nordic-like policies in the 1970s, then our real GDP would be almost 20 percent lower today.
    The White House

    I agree with Grace Mulloy’s assessment of the Red Cross. It doesn’t distribute our contributions well enough – I’m afraid quite a lot of it on its way out, gets trapped in the echelon’s pockets!! Moreover, its sympathies aren’t extended to Israel! It doesn’t have its original Christian flavor!

    The “Refugees” from the Central America are not refugees. They don’t have the look of people who really suffered in their countries – in general they look well-fed, healthy, strong but very aggressive. There are more young able-bodied men of fighting age than women & children. Some do have the looks of middle-eastern men instead of South American/ Central American! (I did live in the middle east for a number of years). It looks more like an invading army than frightened, oppressed, ill-treated, safety-seeking civilians – although some of them are civilians seeking better life! I wouldn’t be surprised if 50% of the men are more of a fighting mind or bent toward violence of some kind. I pray that they’re not.

    The Democrats who doesn’t really care about the Country, the Constitution, God’s Laws, or the ordinary American and so they won’t hesitate to spend our American tax dollars and who knows perhaps they’ll dip into our Social Security & Medicare for the upkeep of illegal immigrants who are encouraged by the Democrats to keep coming in hordes for lack of stricter commonsense Immigration Laws, and the Border Wall and Amnesty for all!! According to statistics (https://www.fairus.org/issue/publications-resources/fiscal-burden-illegal-immigration-united-states-taxpayers; https://amac.us/illegal-immigration-cost-1/). Where will this end? – till US is over-run and becomes a 3rd-World country, another Venezuela, Cuba, Haiti, Honduras with poverty, misery, without freedom and oppressive governments?

    It costs us $134 billion to take care of them each year. In taxes, perhaps they contribute between $18 & 19 billion. This means that we spend around $116 billion out of our pockets to take care of the illegals each year. The Border Wall costs only about $16 - 25 billion! This is almost nothing compared to the $116 billion!!

    So, please, pray for our President, the Congress, DOJ, Supreme Court, and write to your Senators and Representatives to pass the budget to build the Border Wall, pass the strict commonsense Immigration Laws, etc. Thank you, God bless you all. May He give us His wisdom, discernment, and hope. Please pray that the Lord in His Grace and power will cause with whichever means the Lord see fit for these people to change their minds and return home rather than proceed to the US border and prevent us/ President from forcing our/his hand (to be used against him by his enemies) and turn everything into our and President’s favour and put all our opponents to shame!

    This afternoon - FOX anchor Shephard Smith bunking heads with Chris Wallace: Wallace was right - Shepard opined wrong - he is not on Fox News Fair & Balanced to give his opinion which was biased and wrong. He suggested that the President's rheteroic somehow caused the bomb scares. Chris Wallace disagreed - they had words. I never heard Shephard put down the comedian with the President' head danging from her hands or giving opines about rhetoric from Madonna about burning down the WH. Or a woman senator telling others to cause violent actions against GOPs. Shep should get a job at CNN - he fts in better there. Go Chris. Shep needs to leave FOX. He doesn't fit in there. We get enough of biased 'news'. Tell the news and leave your innuendos out.

    Hi Mike,

    With the pending brugh-ha-ha at the border every one has solutions. The following is my solution. In Israel they use synthetic SKUNK spray for crowd control. IT WORKS!

    Also the military has a sound generator that can be used for crowd control. It was demonstrated on 60 Minutes several years. Their demonstration worked.

    Either one should work or both and have positive results

    Funny thing happened on the way to "civility." Violence beget by those advancing violence, as in, Antifa, Waters in encouraging all her whacks to "get up in their faces and push back at them," etc., ad nauseam, has brought a sad reminder to THEM, and everyone, that what they advocate may actually bite them in the keister, as well! Bombs, fake or otherwise, being delivered to THEIR doorsteps by a loon of the same stripe as their 'terrorist' mobs, or the Republican baseball game shooter! NOW, everyone wants to tamp down the rhetoric, and or at least blame it on, surprise, surprise, Trump. "Mad Max" Maxine continues to spew her venom, and declare that she/they will not be intimidated - what's that mean, more microphone/bullhorn encouragement to her 'mobs' to continue their "lawless" behavior?

    I am very concerned about Pres. Trump's correct decision in sending the military to the Mexican border. I hope he has sent enough to turn back this unwarranted invasion into our nation. What bothers me the most is the possibility of violence forcing the soldiers to use military force in defense of their lives. I am positive this will be the ammunition to once again attack the President and try to blame him instead of those who are planning on breaking the laws of this country. I would love to see you and other conservatives address this concern before it happens, because you all know this is what the Democrat Party is waiting for, an incendiary action on the part of the invaders that causes a disastrous result. 1) removal of guns from citizens 2) impeachment of the president 3) blame everyone but who is responsible and the upsetting of the elections coming up.

    Totally agree with the lynching ad. Believe me, even white wives have thought about their own husbands and own sons in this "guilty until proven innocent environment".

    An interesting play called "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" has a great scene that goes something like this. The boss's mistress tries to get young Finch to kiss her. He tells her that is not a good idea. She says if you don't kiss me, I will tell him (his boss) you kissed me anyway.

    Thanks for you commentary.

    Re: "Now, at long last, Republicans are once again starting to hold people to account for their actions. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has referred sleazy attorney Michael Avenatti and his client Julie Swetnick to the Justice Department for criminal investigation relating to a “potential conspiracy to provide materially false statements to Congress.”
    I suggest you don't count your chickens before they hatch! Do you really think that dynamic duo of Sessions and Rosenstein will sic the FBI, and /or the Justice Dept. on that sleazy pair of criminally libelous Trump-haters when they are either actively (Rosenstein) or inactively (Sessions) working as part of the cabal to divest Trump of his well-earned, well-run, incessantly-harried, promises-kept Presidency? Don't hold your breath, Governor! This is the extreme frustration we conservatives are having - with this congress and with the JD....Albert Blank

    Gov. Huckabee, my family and most everyone I speak with wants Pres. Trump to SECURE the borders and stop this invasion by these migrants. He floated the idea a week or so ago that he would send the Military and CLOSE THE BORDERS. In my opinion, our next months and years will be determined by what the president does at this time. Our hearts break for the children involved, but we will never be able to help the children of the world if we can not FIRST HELP our nation become a sovereign nation again. If they OVERRUN us this time, they will continue until there is no more UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN. BTW, my family voted yesterday.......straight Republican ticket. We are from GA., 4th District near Atlanta and I just heard yesterday that citizens voting here in Georgia have watched as their votes have been flipped.......(Soros machines I guess). The VOTE MUST BE SECURED or postponed until a time when it will be secure. Blessings for all you and your family do for WE THE PEOPLE.
    ps.....love our Press Secretary.

    this comment has nothing to do with any of the daily emails I am reading, but I sure am interested in a response.
    I see each year how news outlets tell of an increase to the social security benefits, yet I never hear anything about how the increase to medicare wipes it out. Last year I received a $29.00/month increase - yet medicare was increased $25.00/month - who can live "high of the hog" on $4.00/month increase.
    Beginning in 2019 it will be a 2.8% increase - can't wait to see how much medicare rises. But then I guess the govt needs the money to take care of the "illegals".

    I thought there was real irony in Hillary's post bomb speech pointing to deep divisions and urging efforts to come together. As I recall post election, her shock, and that of her supporters, the beginning of ,"the Opposition Party" , who did not even attend Trump's inauguration, have tried to block his every effort to affect positive change, called him illegitimate, unfit to serve, threatened to impeach him, then called for in-your-face harrassment of any and all Republicans wherever they are. I hope this bomb scare has truly given Mrs. Clinton and other Dems something to think about, and will encourage them to tone the rhetoric down a few notches. Thank God no one has been injured, but people like Madonna and other high profile celebrities out there need to remember, there are many mentally imbalanced people out there, and we don't need to be feeding them ideas.
