Evening Edition - October 16

October 16, 2019

You probably heard that Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, gave an interview to ABC News. The idea was to claim he really is qualified for all those cushy jobs, or at least as qualified as the other unqualified people on those boards, so there’s nothing to see here.  Except for the moment where he sort of admits he probably got the job in Ukraine because of his dad. The video is at the link, along with proof that not everyone is buying this.

Hold onto your teeth, here’s some jaw-dropping news:

Three of the four members of the House’s far-far-left “Squad” – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar – have endorsed socialist Bernie Sanders for President! 

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/ocasio-cortez-omar-tlaib-reportedly-will-endorse-bernie-sanders

While this is hardly surprising, it's being touted as big news because those House members reportedly have influence over two big leftwing voter bases that Bernie needs: youth and people with severe brain damage.

Project Veritas has released part two of its undercover video expose of CNN, but it’s not exactly shocking.  We learn that CNN president Jeff Zucker is not only an anti-Trump political partisan who shapes news coverage to push his political agenda (we also learned that from the first video, and from watching 10 minutes of CNN at any time), he’s also more interested in ratings than fair coverage of the Democratic race. And as I would’ve predicted, he doesn’t like Tulsi Gabbard.  If she’s ever going to make it in big league Democratic politics, she needs to take some advice from the Talking Heads and “Stop making sense.”

To be fair to CNN, they don’t just try to shape the news to help Democrats look good.  They also help set up phony, staged moments at town halls to help Democrats look good.

The word “news” in “Cable News Network” is now officially as accurate as the word “reality” in “reality show.”

Good Read: Derek Hunter at Townhall.com lists a few of the latest examples of how “it’s good to be a Democrat.” For instance, you can be blatantly corrupt and transparently hypocritical, lie like a rug, make offensive or self-incriminating statements, or even commit federal crimes and never be held to account by legal authorities.  Meanwhile, the media sweep it all under the rug for you.  Republicans not only get raked over the coals by the media and jailed for the slightest offense, they’re even threatened with impeachment if they dare to investigate allegations of crimes committed by Democrats. 

Yes, it would be much easier to be a Democrat. If I just turned on my fellow conservatives and stabbed them in the back, I could be celebrated by the elites, invited to all the hottest parties, and maybe even offered a Big Three Network TV show.  Only problem is, I’d have to sell out my principles and start believing 10 ridiculous things before breakfast every morning.  So I guess I’ll just have to keep living the hard, honest way.

PS from “Huckabee” writer and pop culture historian Pat Reeder:

This Derek Hunter column about how good it is to be a Democrat is obviously inspired by Mel Brooks’ portrayal of King Louis XVI in “History of the World, Part 1,” when he would commit some outrageous abuse of power, then turn to the camera and say, “It’s good to be the King!” Of course, the peasants finally got tired of that and put an end to it in a much sharper way than just electing Donald Trump.

Fun trivia: do you know who was the first white artist ever to land a rap single on Billboard’s top 100 R&B chart?  It was Mel Brooks with his rap single of “It’s Good to Be the King,” which made it to #69 in 1981.  No white rap act would make that chart again until the Beastie Boys five years later.  Here’s the video in which Mel raps about how good it is to be a tyrannical potentate (or a 21st century Democrat politician), with an ending that could serve as a warning to them both.

He was qualified to make this $50,000 for a corrupt company but Gov who paid this money to this company us the tax payer in our billions we sent there. WHY? Who is worth this to do what? Do not know yet the whole China deal. Ask our NBA on China and we have to stay out of another countries politics and how they treat their people oh really? Oh I see you are making billions over there for NBA and players . So the game is different for NBA then a guy who gets on his knees in the NFL per how terrible this country treats their citizens?

    Let's see what CNN really stands for as I've heard from conservative Christians that I hang around and as a retired 42-year newspaper journalist!
    Corrupt News Network, Clinton News Network, Cynical News Network, Cyclical UnNews Network, Cyanide News Network, Corrosive News Network, Not a Crime News Network, Conniving News Network, ect. etc. etc.

    "....those House members reportedly have influence over two big leftwing voter bases that Bernie needs: youth and people with severe brain damage."

    Forgive me, Senator, but I fail to see the difference in the two!

    We should promote the claim that Brennan was the whistleblower and Nadler was the second one. That way, until they produce the real ones, everyone will get the idea that this whole thing is a set up and not to be believed.

    "Six things the LORD hates; seven are an abomination unto Him. A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands the shed innocent blood (abortion), a heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness that speaks lies, and he that sows discord among brethren." An apt description of many of the democrats.

    When out and out hatred of someone or something takes hold, logic goes out the window. Most of Middle America would seem to be too busy living to care much about what is, or is not, going down in the Capitol. Saw Jessi interviews in which he ask people on the street about the Ukraine. Answers ranged from Ukraine?? to well it’s a country near Russia isn’t it?

    I think Tump’s conversation was ill advised, but was it high crimes and misdemeanors? The Dems are so blatant about the double standard sometimes I think I’m in the middle of a so so musicale comedy farce. Hatred blinds and becomes all consuming.

    PS: I heard an elementary school boy was told he should characterize himself as bi so as not to put down the LBGTQ children around him. Huh! We are encouraging very young children toward a dystopian life. How many children’s health and mental well being are going to be compromised by hormonal drugs in the future. Mental breakdowns, sterility, growth issues, cancer? No one knows, so heck just experiment on children, after all they are pretty much disposable anyway before birth.
