Evening Edition - March 8

March 8, 2020

Many mail-in votes are still being counted in the California primary, but the San Francisco Chronicle reports that there are indications of buyer's remorse among voters who elected Democrats last time. The total Republican primary vote was higher than the Democrat vote in six of the seven House districts that flipped to Democrats in 2018. Which begs the obvious questions: “Only six out of seven are feeling buyer’s remorse? Have they not been paying attention?”

Video of the Day! Elizabeth Warren apparently has a socialist dog. Her golden retriever Bailey was captured on video redistributing a supporter’s burrito to himself.

You can also tell Bailey is a socialist because he expects his master to take care of him and provide his every need, plus he obviously believes that there is such a thing as a free lunch.

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

The most delicious fallout yet from Sen. Chuck Schumer publicly threatening Supreme Court Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh if they don’t vote the way he wants in a new abortion case: the pro-Second Amendment group Gun Owners of America is demanding that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo invoke the new “red flag law” that he just pushed through and bar Schumer from purchasing any guns due to his mental instability and being a known threat.

https://www.westernjournal.com/schumer-targeted-gun-confiscation-law-threatening-scotus-justices/

As great as this idea is on principle, it won’t make any real world difference because Schumer doesn’t own a gun (he can always call on armed government security agents, unlike the rest of us.) Also, unfortunately, mental stability doesn’t disqualify you from being a Senator, particularly in New York.

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

On the national level, here’s another seemingly inexplicable way in which the left is working hard to make your life harder and crime easier.

Thursday, all House Republicans and 42 Democrats joined to pass an amendment to the Rights for Transportation Security Officers Act. The bill would give TSA agents, the people who provide security at airports, protections similar to other government workers, such as collective bargaining and whistleblower protection. However, as with too many other government agencies, it would make firing a bad TSA agent a difficult process that takes months or even years. So a bipartisan amendment was passed to bar anyone convicted of terrorism, sexual assault and other violent crimes from working for the TSA.

And…brace yourself…174 Democrats voted against that! They include House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and all four members of AOC’s leftist “Squad.” Ponder that for a moment: they actually opposed banning terrorists from working in airport security jobs and giving convicted sexual predators the power to order strangers to disrobe or to “pat down” entire families.

https://dailycaller.com/2020/03/06/174-democrats-tsa-transportation-security-officers-act-house-amendment/

Maybe there’s some perfectly justifiable reason that has nothing to do with wanting to harm America and its citizens that would justify fighting for the right of terrorists and sexual predators to be TSA agents. If so, feel free to put it in the comments. But if it’s not a deliberate act of national suicide, then it sure is a great impersonation of one.

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

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is the latest court to decide that it, not the President, has the power to set immigration policy. The Court blocked Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy for asylum seekers along the California and Arizona borders, where it has jurisdiction (at least this time, they didn’t try to make their court orders nationwide.) The policy requires asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their requests to enter the US are being examined, rather than letting them in, where they can simply disappear into the population.

https://www.fox23.com/news/politics/court-blocks-remain/RJLR5DYXH2CATBJ4AULA7QMDVM/

The court stayed the order until March 12 while the Trump Administration petitions the Supreme Court to overrule it, before large numbers of foreigners start streaming across the border. That could be disastrous when they’re trying to contain the coronavirus (this has already proven to be a problem with the spread of tropical diseases from Central America into the US.)

Note to Justice Sotomayor: THIS is why Trump has to keep coming to the SCOTUS for emergency rulings. They aren’t fantasies made up by the White House, they’re actual emergencies caused by leftist lawfare litigants and out-of-control judges who constantly ignore the Constitutional limits of their powers.

    Is there a way to remove activist judges from office? Both left and right, federal, state or county. If they put politics above the law and the constitution they should be removed by what ever means required.

    Thank you,

    I don't understand why President Trump signed the coronavirus bill that gave 8.4 billion dollars when all he requested was 2.8? The additional monies were going to bogus bureaucratic stuff to finance international agencies and other leftist wishes. Can you explain?

  • Kay DeWitt

    Mike, I don't know if you remember, but, a few months ago, I wrote you a comment because I was so grieved to see where President Trump had stated, in a tweet he wrote, what was his HATRED for the Democrats and that, UPON my reading his stating this, I, immediately, thought of the interview you had with Arthur Brooks where you discussed the message in his book, "LOVE YOUR ENEMIES" .

    In my comment to you I mentioned to you that........ since you agreed with Brooks' statement that THE only thing that would heal...or at least lessen...the divide between the political parties..and the whole country.....is by answering HATRED with LOVE....NOT with HATRED..... you would understand WHY President Trump's tweet HAD so grieved me! And when Arthur Brooks shared his grief over the fact that we can no longer have someone disagree with us without feeling contempt for that person, it was obvious, by your response, that you shared his grief....WHICH TOLD ME THAT ....

    I knew you would agree WITH me that President Trump needed TO answer the Democrats' hatred toward him with love, NOT the hate that he had admitted to in his tweet and, therefore, President Trump needed to HEAR Arthur Brooks' message and that, perhaps, God could use YOU to bring that message to President Trump because he knows you love, and are supportive OF, him and, therefore, he would be more apt to RECEIVE that message FROM you!

    After I had heard Mark Harris preach the first time I went to his church, I wrote him a "letter" that I presented to him, after the service, where I mentioned the need President Trump had to hear Arthur Brooks' message, BUT THAT, upon catching his interview with Judy Woodruff, I was then grieved over how Arthur Brooks' answered Judy's question to him as to HOW one CAN love his enemies because his answer was NOT how....according TO Jesus...one can do this!

    AND IT WAS THAT FACT THAT INSPIRED THE LETTER I WROTE TO MARK because I knew that HE could have answered that question Judy had posed to Brooks so, maybe, if YOU could not get to President Trump to give him Arthur Brooks' message, HE could... because President Trump KNOWS him!

    In view OF all this, do you have any idea of the depth of disbelief I felt, this past Thursday, when I LEARNED THAT ARTHUR BROOKS WAS THE SPEAKER AT THE NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST.....Do you have any idea of the grief I felt when I read that.....in response TO Arthur Brooks' message that JESUS told us...in Matthew 5:44...that we are to "love our enemies"......President Trump said, "Arthur, I don't know if I agree with you"......

    That grief was compounded by the fact that, one more time, Arthur Brooks could not explain HOW Jesus taught us we CAN love our enemies! AND he was given a perfect opportunity to do so when President Trump stated that it was hard to LIKE those who....etc...etc....BECAUSE....all Brooks had to say, in response to him, was, "Jesus said we were to LOVE our enemies, He didn't say we had to LIKE them!" .... "You see, Mr. President........

    "THE only way we CAN love our enemies is if it is JESUS' love THROUGH us because, in our human nature, we are incapable OF loving our enemies....which is WHY Jesus said that, "by their FRUIT (OF His agape love), you will know them....
    those who are truly My disciples!" .....And Jesus said this because Christianity is a RELATIONSHIP, it is not a RELIGION...which is why Jesus said that unless a man be "born again" he cannot inherit the kingdom of God because being born again is ABOUT a relationship with Jesus whereby He lives IN you...in YOUR heart...and He then loves THROUGH you and it is HIS love through you that can love one's enemies because His love loves EVERYONE....which is why His love is unconditional....
    BUT...because Jesus is holy, while he LOVES every SINNER, He, concomitantly, hates their SIN!!!!!! "

    BUT ARTHUR BROOKS COULD NOT SAY THAT TO THE PRESIDENT BECAUSE HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND IT HIMSELF!......BUT....TRAGICALLY....neither did the MSNBC news people who accused President Trump of being totally without ANY love and for purporting to be a Presbyterian when he didn't even believe in what Jesus taught! Of course, they, themselves, had no clue as to what it really means to be a born again Christian who truly knows HIM and not just ABOUT Him because I daresay they could not say that they LOVED President Trump!

    Then there were those commentators who criticized the supposed Christians AT that breakfast who, rather than defend the words of their first COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF, they laughed at the words of their second commander-in-chief and...all this combined, made my heart again feel like it would break because, for ME, it all added up to NO reality....

    So, this heartbreak moved me to write ABOUT it in the material I was going to present to Mark Harris, yesterday, when I visited his church.....and, when I DID visit Mark's church, yesterday, and listened to THIS man's message of what IS reality...against the backdrop of the insanity of NON-REALITY ....it was this this that overwhelmed me...AND to add TO it, not only did Mark talk about how Christ's love loves the SINNER and hates the SIN, but he also said, "this is THE only reality" ...

    AND THEN WHEN MARK WENT ON TO TALK ABOUT HOW MODERN-DAY CHRISTIANITY GIVES PEOPLE A FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY....which is WHY some writer (I forget his name) wrote about how modern -day church is sending people to hell..... WAS WHEN I HAD TO FIGHT WEEPING BECAUSE THIS HAS BEEN MY AGONY...because this reality has cost me years of tears as I have cried to deaf ears in my endeavor to make Christians SEE this reality!

    By the end OF Mark's sermon I was convinced that had HE, rather than Arthur Brooks, been the speaker at the National Prayer Breakfast, just maybe President Trump could have "heard" him!

    When I spoke WITH Mark, and asked him if he KNEW about what went on at the National Prayer Breakfast, he said that he did NOT..so I told him...AND.after I did, I told Mark what is my burden because President Trump is heading for a Christless eternity and I care ABOUT that and could HE reach out TO President Trump to try and make him aware OF that and he said he had no real connection WITH President Trump....

    I cannot claim to love my President and NOT care more about whether or not he loses all of eternity with Jesus than whether or not he loses a political election. I tell you, with BIBLICAL authority, that President Trump is NOT saved! When he was asked if he ever repented of his sin, his answer was that he had no need TO repent because he was NOT a sinner....and he does not bear the FRUIT of agape love that loves...rather than hates... his enemies...and he does not care that it was JESUS who told him he had to love our enemies!!!!....and that it was Jesus who said that, if we love Him, we will OBEY His commands!

    I am making this cry FOR President Trump's salvation because I know you love him...I will continue to MAKE this cry to "whosoever" BECAUSE I love him ...I am even contemplating trying to get in touch with Arthur Brooks BECAUSE he could not answer the question of HOW we can love our enemies. Last night I did a search ON Arthur Brooks and, upon learning that he is a Catholic, I, concomitantly, learned WHY he could not answer this question!.....Sigh...

    Killing babies up to and even after birth in some states when on the other hand if a mother or father kills their baby the are guilty of a crime. I believe in some state if someone kills a pregnant woman they are charged with killing two human beings.
    Gays rights endorsing sodomy (Oral and anal copulation), which is what homosexuality is, that goes against nature even among animals.
    Giving rights to illegals that is by the Constitution reserved for American Citizens.
    The list goes on.

    What happens when decent people sit on the sidelines during the voting season they end up with corrupt anti american crooks running their communities making law and rules that make them sick and sub standard. Look at our major cities and states leadership decent people do not elect these monsters; laws that murder infant human beings, rules and laws that enhance criminals; idiots that ban plastic straws and allows human waste matter and poison on the sidewalks of their cities in my community if a pet receives himself on the sidewalk owner picks it up thats decency; if decency prevails decent people have to vote for decent candidates, Congress and the Senate mayors and Governors need to be decent look at NY Calif. Virginia Baltimore Chicago and around the country these communities are led by indecent people they are self serving crooks at the expense of the decent taxpayer.

    How about if the judges who reverse President Trump's immigration policy have to meet in the judge's chambers one-one with a person who has the symptoms of the Corona virus- are they willing to put self, family, friends and neighbors at risk? If the judges say "Yes" to this risk- what about if an elderly neighbor catches the virus from the judge and dies- is there a wrongful death suit possible by neighbor's relatives?

    Sotomayer/Ginsberg--
    I was initially floored by ginzberg's blast of trump, but after the apology, was somewhat reticient. The more I thought about it, the more I remembered the old adage of "leopards can't change their spots" The apology became less than genuine. Now we have another blast from soto-whatever--this one is even more biased--that word is not supposed to be associated with a SCOTUS member--both of these individuals should be removed from the bench-period

    I cannot believe anyone would want terrorists and predators working in our government. Has our Congress completely lost their minds or are they still so mad that Hillary is not President that they would betray our America. Just total insanity! Prayers are certainly needed.
