Dear Madam Speaker:
I read the six-page letter sent to you by President Trump on the eve of his impeachment and thought that as long as letters are flying around, I would send you one myself, just as someone trying to help.
The biggest question for you now is what to do next as you contemplate what action might be taken in the Senate. Your follow-up strategy is very important, I know, to your goal of damaging the President as much as possible before the 2020 election, but right now you and your Democrat colleagues are busy celebrating --- behind closed doors, of course --- and it’s hard for people who are giddy with merriment and even perhaps a bit hungover to chart their next steps. (You’ve tried your best to look somber and be discreet about the celebrations, but some news accounts have slipped out. You know how it is with leaks.) The impeachment of President Trump is your long-awaited Christmas gift to yourselves, and now that you have finally unwrapped it, you naturally want to play with it a while. Goodness, you’ve worked so hard and have come so far. And you must all be very proud of yourselves, considering you got this done completely on your own, with not one single vote from the Republican side. Who needs those Republicans, right? You made up your own rules and accomplished the deed all by yourselves.
You worked and planned for this, and only this, literally for years. You were singleminded. You did it. You own this.
But now it’s time for the Senate to take it on. And I just read in THE DAILY CALLER that you are “leaving open” the possibility of withholding the articles of impeachment from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell until you are “assured a fair trial in the Senate.” You said that, so far, you haven’t seen anything that looks fair to you. You’ve apparently suggested to reporters that you plan to hold up the impeachment process.
Abortion activists don’t spend all their time and energy trying to prevent pregnant women from learning the truth about what abortion really is. They’ve also been working to promote the widespread availability of abortion-inducting drugs by claiming they’re a safe alternative to early-term abortion with little-to-no complications or side effects. If you saw the movie “Unplanned,” you’ll remember that was what Abby Johnson was told, and she thought she was going to die from the painful side effects.
Well, in the interest of helping women make a truly informed choice about their reproductive health, here’s a story about a study recently published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons. It found that abortions induced by drugs given to women up to the 10th week of pregnancy are far more dangerous than advertised, and have a complication rate four times higher than surgical abortion.
Here’s a quote from that article:
“According to the research, risks include ruptured ectopic pregnancies, hemorrhage, infection and retained pregnancy tissue, which require surgery in as many as one in 20 women. The FDA reports at least 24 women have died along with their unborn babies from the drugs, and thousands more have been injured.” Between 2000 and 2018, the FDA reports there have been 24 deaths, 97 ectopic pregnancies, 1,042 hospitalizations, 599 blood transfusions, and 412 infections (including 69 severe infections), with a total of 4,195 adverse events reported,” due to these drugs. And it could be much higher, since only 28 states require clinics to report such complications.
Meanwhile, the abortion industry claims they’re so safe, they dispense them remotely by webcam so that women don’t even have to see a doctor before taking them.
Tell me again about how these people are the guardians of women’s health.
I wanted to make sure you also read these comments:
Interesting story about how, despite more than $1 billion in spending to eliminate homelessness, Seattle’s homeless problem just keeps getting worse. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that “progressive” officials are spending most of the money on fighting “oppression” and “(interrogating) the current structures of power” in order to “examine the legacies of structural racism in our systems, and co-design a path towards liberation with black, indigenous, brown and other marginalized communities.”
Silly me, I would have spent the money on shelters, drug and alcohol programs, mental health care and job placement. Let’s hope that the next increase in the homeless population comes from those officials being thrown out of office and into the street.
Well, this isn’t at all suspicious: surveillance tape of wealthy and well-connect pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide attempt in a Manhattan jail has somehow gone “missing.” Oh, just to be clear: this isn’t the video that got turned off when he did “kill himself.” This is the video of his earlier suicide attempt, the first time that he didn’t kill himself. Oh, sorry, I mean, the first time he TRIED to kill himself…
Since I’m constantly on airplanes (sorry, Greta!), I really relate to this story about a Christmas time act of kindness by a Huck’s Hero named Jack. He was traveling with his family on a Virgin Atlantic flight from New York to the UK when he met a fellow passenger named Violet. Violet is an 88-year-old retired nurse who was returning from a visit with her daughter, whom she hadn't been able to visit in a long time because of Violet's knee replacement surgery.
Jack was so taken with Violet that once they were on the plane, he insisted that they switch seats. Jack sat uncomplainingly back in the economy section, next to the toilets, while Violet took his seat in First Class, traveling in style for the very first time.
Check out these heartwarming photos that show how happy this random act of kindness made Violet. That smile is worth the price of a First Class ticket anywhere.
