Evening Edition - December 16

December 16, 2019 |

Over the past year or so, few people in media have been as scorned and reviled as Sean Hannity, who kept pursuing the FBI/FISA abuse story even as mainstream media outlets mocked and denounced him as a crazy conspiracy monger.  What he was actually doing was giving time to reporters who were committing real journalism, the way it used to be done before so many media outlets abandoned it for the political PR business.

At this link, Spectator.org reminds us of some of the awful things that were said about Hannity, and how the Horowitz report proved that Hannity was right and they were wrong.

https://spectator.org/the-vindication-of-sean-hannity/

By the way, not to toot our own horns, but it should be noted that my small staff and I have also been covering this story for a long time, too, and reaching the same conclusions (if it looks like a skunk, acts like a skunk and smells like a skunk, it’s a skunk.) Our conclusions have also now been vindicated, and I like to think that so have our jokes.

Our own Laura Ainsworth even set the entire story to music as far back as last July! We should have sent her to sing this to Congress and saved the taxpayers a lot of money on pointless hearings.

It must be hard for the anti-Trump media outlets always to find some way to spin every piece of good news under Trump as a negative, particularly when there’s been SO much good news lately.  But I think Newsweek might have set a new low. With Trump’s sanctions squeezing Iran and anti-government protests there gaining steam, Newsweek devoted its cover to claiming that it might be a bad thing if Iran’s oppressive, radical Islamic mullahs were toppled. ISIS might replace them!  As John Hinderaker points out at the link, this is the same propaganda argument the mullahs are using. 

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2019/12/newsweek-parrots-the-mullahs-line.php  

Congratulations, Newsweek: You’ve proven you’d rather echo the oppressive mullahs of Iran and keep Iranians under their thumb than side with President Trump on anything.  You’ve also proven once again when the entire magazine was sold a few years back for one dollar, it was overpriced.

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

 

More proof that TDS is a brain-wasting disease:  According to some Democrat activists, by reaching out to black voters and asking them to vote for him, President Trump is engaging in voter suppression.  Because…all black votes apparently belong to the Democratic Party, so any black votes they don’t get have been “suppressed”…?  Or something like that. 

You think I’m making this up, don’t you?  No, even I couldn’t make up a joke this silly…

Interesting article from another longtime Californian who’s loading up the moving van and heading to Tennessee because the Golden State is becoming intolerably tarnished by its moronic leftist government. For liberals who claim that red states don’t welcome refugees, just look at how many refugees from blue states we take in. 

https://calmatters.org/commentary/so-long-california/amp/

That’s fine, you’re welcome, as long as you remember one cardinal rule: Do NOT come to our successful red states and vote for the same failed leftist garbage that drove you out of the blue state you just fled.

 

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

 

Law professor Jonathan Turley, last seen warning unmoved House Democrats that impeaching the President on flimsy evidence and bogus charges would mean they were the ones abusing power, has written an article on why wrongly-targeted Trump aide Carter Page deserves an apology.  Of course, he’s not likely to get one (look how we practically had to move Heaven and Earth just to get James Comey to admit he was wrong – and they claim Trump has a big ego!), but it’s nice to finally start hearing a few people outside conservative circles admit the truth.

But if it had been a Democratic aide who was the victim of this cascade of lies, abuses of power, falsely-obtained FISA warrants and hiding of exculpatory evidence, do you think the Democrats would let the Trump Administration off the hook by letting them say, “Hey, mistakes were made.” They’re trying to impeach Trump for making a phone call!

Your tax dollars at work: Seattle and King County, Washington, officials hired a transgender stripper named Beyoncé Black St. James to perform at their annual conference on solving homelessness.

https://twitchy.com/gregp-3534/2019/12/15/seattle-hires-transgender-stripper-to-perform-at-conference-to-solve-homelessness/

The director who made the hire has been suspended, even though this was probably just as effective as anything else those politicians would do to solve homelessness.  I can’t even get too worked up about the waste of tax dollars, since the voters in those places elected leftists to raise their taxes and waste their tax money, and I bet they’ll reelect them, too.  

  

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

 

When I write about the oblivious arrogance of leftist elites, I couldn’t ask for a better illustration than a comment from Jeremy Corbyn, the (now former) leader of Britain’s Labour Party.  After suffering a massive, historic shellacking at the polls that will place him in history next to the captain of the Titanic, Corbyn still insisted that “We won the arguments.” 

https://www.dailywire.com/news/jeremy-corbyn-goes-full-stacey-abrams-declares-victory-after-blowout-loss

Sadly, there is some truth to that.  He meant that the leftists have pushed the “center” further left on a range of issues (income inequality, climate, etc.)  And British “conservatives” are much more liberal on a lot of those issues than American conservatives are.  So voters didn’t have a really clear-cut choice.  But the point is that given a choice between the currently fashionable notions of leftists and the furthest thing from them that was available, they voted for the furthest thing.  Let’s hope now that the conservatives realize just how unpopular those leftist elitist views are, they’ll stop feeling the need to appease the media and drag the center back to where it belongs.

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

 

UPDATE!  Teenage climate star Greta Thunberg apologized for saying that leaders who don’t get on board with her revolutionary climate change dogma should be “put against the wall.”  She claims that was a bad translation from her native Swedish and doesn't really mean executing them.

https://www.foxnews.com/world/greta-thunberg-apologizes-against-the-wall-break-global-activism-time-person-of-year

I wonder how much of this entire crusade has been a bad translation from Swedish?  The good news is that she’s taking a holiday break from berating us all for exhaling carbon dioxide.  Let’s hope this signals the beginning of a new phase in which she actually, I don’t know, goes to school or something.

Again, I don’t blame her, I blame her parents, and whoever is funding this worldwide PR blitz, for misleading, frightening and exploiting her.  But as usual, Kurt Schlichter is not so forgiving in his analysis...

    Great advice Governor to those moving from failed blue states to red states - Not to vote for the same failed policies or vote for a Democrat in their new residence of a red state.
    For all of us common folks, outside of moving from a blue state to a red state- we need to make sure that we and many, many others vote in the November 2020 election. Read a lot of statistics about how many evangelicals or those who claim to be who are not registered voters (because they have never registered) or the registered evangelicals who don't vote. It is astounding to me and of course Governor you are trying to reach more evangelicals through your MyFaithVotes and other efforts. It is absolutely beyond my understanding that if you are an evangelical (though I don't like the terminology) or proclaim to be a Christian or even more so a Christian- a believer, why one would vote for a Democrat candidate. Just on the abortion issue alone, but there are so many other issues like same-sex marriage, etc. that the Democrats support. If you are a believer and you vote for a Democrat and their anti-God agenda, what is wrong with you that you vote against God and the Bible. Do you not know the Bible for yourself or have you just caved to conform to the world, the Democrat party and culture ? !!!!!!!!!
    I hope and pray there will be a historic "red wave" in November 2020. The only way we will get our country back is to pray to God to restore our Nation and to make the Democrat party such a minority forever, that they will become irrelevant, then we have a chance to get our Nation back to "In God We Trust" and all our original values that once made this country the greatest in the world. We can do it again and it is indeed a time of a true turning point in this nation- either vote to restore our Nation, or vote for the Democrats socialist agenda that will forever ruin our Nation.

    There are so many idiots in the western part of my state (Washington) that I hang my head in shame and disgust. I cannot imagine how some of the morons over there ever got elected or hired for positions of leadership since they don't have the brains to pull down their pants before they soil themselves. I actually think most of them flushed their brains down the toilet!

    Thank you for telling that California to not vote for any Leftists if they are moving to TN!!!! After living here for 6 1/2 years I feel that there are way too many that are now leaning to the Left in TN. All you have to do is read the papers to see that.
    We just spent the weekend in Franklin for my 80th birthday and took in the Predator's game on Sat. But driving around Franklin and even Nashville it is getting so congested and I told my husband that they are ruining that little Historical Town of Franklin. It is soooo crowded and getting worse every time we go over there. Such a shame! With all the apartments or condo it is beginning to look like Europe! ugh! There are lots of CA people coming this way and I hope they know if they live here they have to VOTE RED FOR PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP FOR 2020! Thank goodness I think that Loudon is mostly Conservative!

    I'm with Kurt. This wickedness is moving fast, and not easy to stop, so tell it like it is from the beginning . You might as well leave Dad's and Mom's out of it, because it's probably too late to straighten out their minds.
    Not many people have learned that there's an almighty God who created everything, and He's ruling over all of it, and the weather will be the way He wants it to be. Can we stop a tornado, a hurricane, a mudslide, sandstorms,a volcano, summer, winter, spring, and fall. Anybody who tries is just making fools of themselves.

    Do not think my last comment went to you. Said "not sure you are not a robot" and disappeared. Not the first time this has happened.

    Governor, what do you think about new rumour this morning that about 10 Republican Senators are considering a move to impeach President Trump in order to get Pence into office because Pence (they say) will not follow through on the current investigations...including corruption....and Barr and Durham?

    First of all I tried to contribute yesterday and something is wrong with the site.

    Second, sometimes people become so far removed from reality that they just become silly. Have you ever seen anything sillier that Schiff. Runner up is Pelosi and number three is Nadler. Must say Nancy has good taste in clothes, keeps her nice figure, and has a great plastic surgeon. It must be nice to be among the elite whose faith lets her support unfettered abortion.

    I can imagine the people on the msm shows looking as gobstopped these days as they did when the 2016 election results came in. Have to imagine because I haven't tuned in to their shows. I guess they will probably bulldoze right on with their non-fact "reporting" much like the House democrats are reported to say they will NOT give up on impeachment, even if the Senate says no impeachment. If it's true that Fiona will vote for impeachment--guess it's a another bullet we avoided when she did not become candidate--but sounds like she would vote for it (hey--don't pay attention to the FACT that there was NO EVIDENCE on any of the accusations) probably because she didn't even make it to the primaries. Collins was very rational when she stood up to vote for Justice Kavanaugh--there was no evidence of all he was accused of, but ther was a report she'd vote for impeachment even though there is no evidence!!!

    Am glad that Hannity persisted, along with Tucker and Laura Ingraham, Rush, Mark Levin, and other conservative talk show hosts. And, of course, Huckabee and company!!! Thanks. Hopefully more people will realize they are being taken for a ride by msm and will start tuning in to conservative networks for facts and real news.

    I hope the citizens of VA are successful in shutting down the oppression about gun confiscation and registration proposed by their governor and legislators. For the city that voted to tax guns and ammo, guess the owners of gun stores will be losing business-not because people will quit buying, but because they will take their business to surrounding cities. I read that more restaurants (I forget the cities) in CA are closing shop--because of the minimum wage law. Wonder when people will get it--now, all those employees have NO income. How'd that work for you all?

    I always enjoy Laura's contributions, and her song is right on!!!

    I do not watch the national Propaganda outlets I listened to Hannity say he was verbally being trashed by the outlets it sounds as it is big stuff that means the lies the outlets are telling are being exposed so the liars are trying to make a honest man look dishonest thats what low life people do. The hate Pelosi and her mob spew for America isn't just against Trump it's pure and simple it is HATE against America. Pelosi's agenda is to Tax every citizens income, assets, while living or dying the goal is to have the American public be an ATM for the Socialist party sound good ? People have been taught aggressively to embrace this idea everything will be free if you want it or not. People like Pelosi will make that decision for you along with the China Communist party People on on the Left snap out of it under this direction your life will be in control of bad people if you don't care about yourself think of your offsprings and possible grandkids remember China only allows so many kids and certain genders. Sound good?

    I liked your one rule for new comers coming to states that are red. However, it may be too late for the beloved state I am a native of, Colorado. You said remember one cardinal rule: Do NOT come to our successful red states and vote for the same failed leftist garbage that drove you out of the blue state you just fled. Colorado is seeing this failed leftist garbage growing higher and higher here. We are trying to fight it and have won some battles not all. It is a constant barrage of left policy being pushed. The governor has over ruled a vote by the people to keep oil drilling and they stopped that causing rural area businesses in Weld county to lose money, they enacted red flag law which many counties aren't going along with, they wanted to have the homeless be able to camp anywhere, they wanted to have these drug areas where the addict can go and shoot up. It is becoming insane here due to these liberal, leftist policies. Oh, and they pushed for the popular vote but activists got out with petitions to get it on the ballot to stop this.

    Blessings,
    Jo (I hope we reverse this next voting go around or I guess we get what we vote for)

    I love your comment about the people leaving Ca. not to bring their liberal ways and ideas to the red state. I read that Texas is worried that this is what they will do. Since Ca. is that bad, they need to have a brain change about their thinking and ideas, otherwise, think they will be snubbed by the conservatives. Love your column and share many.

    Governor, I am disturbed about some missing coverage of what I thought I heard last week with the proposed amendment by Representative Andy Briggs of AZ. My recollection is that the Office of Management and Budget responded to a request from the committee about the hold on future financing to Ukraine by the OMB. The memo indicated it was Standard Operating Procedure that held it up, not our president taking some kind of action. Nobody in media covered this at all.
