Evening Edition - November 7

November 7, 2019 |

Update: Remember that 7-year-old boy in Texas whose mother went to court to try to force his father from having any say in her giving him hormone treatments to turn him into a girl? The judge didn’t go along with the insane verdict in the mother’s favor and granted joint custody. And the father just shared some photos of how the boy dresses when he chooses for himself how he wants to go to school.


This is looking more and more like a case of a psychological issue, but not the boy's. 


I think I can safely assume that most of my newsletter readers don’t spend their Sundays leisurely reading through the New York Times for the latest instructions on what to think about President Trump (I’ll save you a lot of time: “Grrrrrr!!!!”) So you probably missed the big 10-page section last weekend in which the paper paid eight reporters for months to go through, reprint and “analyze” every tweet sent by Trump since he took office in January of 2017. 


The spin here is that you must, at all costs, not read what the President is telling you directly; you must instead listen to what the New York Times tells you that he really means. Their rationale for this is that Trump tweets and retweets all sorts of horrible racist attacks, conspiracy theories and falsehoods.

For instance (grab your smelling salts), he’s “falsely accused” the Obama Administration of spying on his 2016 campaign! He’s claimed there’s a nefarious “deep state” that’s trying to undermine him! (Would that be the same “deep state” that the Times denied existed before it started lauding it for saving our institutions from our elected leaders?) He’s promoted racism by attacking people of color, like House “squad” members AOC, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, who vowed to impeach him in unprintable terms the moment she took office (the implication being that no matter what someone says or does, if they’re a minority, disagreeing with them is “racism” – which by reducing all their ideas to a matter of skin color seems remarkably racist on the part of the Times.) Why, he’s even retweeted accounts that have been suspended by Twitter (are there any conservative commentators or news sites that haven’t been suspended by Twitter at one time or another?)

Now, don’t drop your monocles, but here’s their conclusion: “Since he became president, the most frequent targets of his ire have been Democrats, investigations and the news media.” (Imagine him being angry that his Administration has been constantly hamstrung by expensive, pointless investigations based on nothing that have been ginned up by Democrats and cheered on by the media – incidentally, New York Times, how did that Mueller investigation you kept assuring us for two years was going to prove “Russian collusion” work out in the end?)

It’s genuinely astounding to me that the Times doesn’t realize how laughable is their claim that Trump is using Twitter to undermine “Democratic institutions” after we’ve all seen quite plainly over the past few years just how badly the Democrats who run those institutions have undermined them themselves.

I support Trump, but I admit that some of his tweets have not been to my taste in terms of word choice, and there have been times when I’ve wished he’d given a little more thought or a second pass at the verbiage before hitting “send.” But this pathetic, all-out assault on free speech (again: eight reporters and 10 pages!) has a very obvious partisan goal: either to get Twitter to ban or censor Trump or to convince you not to read his tweets (pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!), which he uses to go around the self-appointed guardians of public discourse like the Times and talk directly to the people. Why would you want to hear what your President is doing or thinking straight from him when you have New York Times “journalists” who despise him to tell you what he’s doing or thinking?

I suppose I should thank the Times, though, for compiling all those tweets in one easily-accessed place. It's the first time in years that anything true and well-sourced about Trump has appeared in that paper!  If nothing else, reading back through all of Trump’s outrageous tweets about the “witch hunt” Mueller investigation, the “Russian collusion hoax” and the “fake news” about his Administration is a great reminder of just how much more factual and accurate Trump’s Twitter feed is than the New York Times.



Stop the presses! Rep. Eric Swalwell (whose presidential bid lasted about as long as it takes to make a cup of instant oatmeal) has discovered a new impeachable offense committed by President Trump. According to Twitchy, it’s even dumber than usual, and when the usual impeachment grounds are that someone else who works in the building and hates Trump heard thirdhand about a telephone call where Trump might have said something he didn’t like, being dumber than that takes serious effort.




If President Trump isn’t really a New Yorker because he doesn’t agree with the ruinous and intolerant leftist policies of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio, then he has a funny way of showing it. Trump just became the first sitting US President in history to accept an invitation for himself and the First Lady to appear in the New York City Veterans Day Parade.

For those who will try to accuse him of only doing this for political reasons, the organizers remind us that he’s been a big supporter of veterans for many years. When the parade was in financial trouble in 1993 and nearly had to cancel, Trump wrote a “ginormous check” and saved it. He was honored at the Pentagon for that (those were the days!)


Here are my predictions for this event: There will be some malcontents on the sidewalks, jeering Trump and yelling, “Lock him up!” The media will treat them as if they represent the entire crowd. And none of them will be veterans.




Amid all the stories in the news of people acting in selfish and self-serving ways, here’s a refreshing and inspiring story of an 18-year-old college student who’s setting a great example in more ways than one.

    I guess I don't understand... there are so many laws being broken by the Dems (especially Hillary and Adam Schitt), the media and others, yet it seems NO ONE is doing anything about it. If I didn't pay my taxes, I would be quickly dealt with by the governments. What am I missing here? It seems that I seldom see even the Republicans doing anything about this lawlessness.

    It looks as the the Left may be getting a little more serious about the 2020 elections as stated before, I said these nut job candidates could not pull off an upset in the Presidential election. The best chance the Left has now is to bring in a lot of money Blomberg, Styier Soros money to buy an election look what big money did for Virginia. The phony Green Deal, Medicare for all, open borders, elimination of law enforcement are destructive behavior for the sake of destroying America. Americans will have to decide can they be bought will they accept being a people that will not be able to decide how we will live life or will we the people decide for themselves how we want to live. Remember guys like Blomberg will regulate how you eat what to eat and how much U eat that is just the beginning. Look at our animals how they are raised for process that is what Humans life will look like under the big money bought and paid for elections. Virginia will be one to watch officials there can assault women wear black face to ridicule black people, babies can be murdered this is beautiful? Yea if u want to be on the lowest level of the food chain. Mlps. has an Attorney General and former head of the Left's Party beat his girlfriend and still has his job; Yea beautiful if you want to be on the lowest level of the food chain these people will take U there. They live that style now; remember when they come for your self defense, Hunting. recreational weapons what will protect you from these low life people? The law of the Left will be the same as a Socialist or Communist regime read about the two; then decide America how you want to live. You have a year to brush up on your socialism and communism If you are a low lifer you can bring misery to the rest of us. Please Lefties that is if you can figure out whom is what, you may reproduce is this what you want for your offspring? I suggest KAG!!!

    I wholeheartedly agree with your commentary. I often think of how much could be accomplished if Congress would use as much energy helping Pres, Trump as they do trying to defeat him. I think the answer is obvious to most Americans.

    The almost daily way that a catch phrase du jour is repeated by many "newscasters" on many main stream media channels, I propose that we stop referring to it as "news coverage" but instead call it "choir practice".

    Mexico invasion plans:
    Op Pancho Villa for LT mission to strike cartels worldwide
    Task Force Pershing for assult into Mexico
    Unlike & like 1916: Use technicals: machine guns on PU trucks, armor, drones, robotics to aid missions in country
    But expose & destroy cartels at will IE drug labs, distrib centers, tunnels & drug subs.
    & rename 2nd Punitive Expedition.
    See 1st Punitive Exp 1916 & Patton Papers book.

    Thanks for your Evening Editions. Like your weekend show news segments, you've sorted through the inanity and insanity, so we don't have to. So refreshing. You will have an audience as long as you want one. Be well.

    Amazing to see the crazy liberals and how they try to make so many things racist. Yet the ones they say the President has attacked per color like Tleib , Omar etc have attacked Christians and Jews and this now is okay per the NYT and other publications who want to stir the pot. Sit there in their Ivory tower in NY believing only they can tell the rest of the US how to live NO not really. A city that at one time I loved in the 60 is now gone along with the city that took over my love San Francisco. Their phony elitism and that they along with Hillary call the rest of us Deplorables guess what we do not care what they think. Exactly why Pres Trump won. He cares for us the working people out here and we know this. He cares for the military who give these idiots in the NYT the right to make the garbage comments they write and attack this President. We know the SWAMP in Congress and they do not honestly care about us and we know this too. The Russian attack and that Hillary lost was not per any Russian but who she is and we saw this. Pres Trump though a billionaire daily worked with the construction people and knew how hard they worked to make his hotels. He still talks in his twitter much like he no doubt talked to them for years. He is not any William Buckley, who I at times I had to look up many of the words he used when writing? So many other wonderful places in this US to live and not New York or Calif. and even DC I also loved years ago is gone no longer the same city of the 60 but a SWAMP.

    He covers his tender, loving heart with strong words! Like Farragut who said,"Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!" And there are many more whove been wounded either physically or emotionally who just didnt say, "Oh,shucky dern!
    Its our right to express our innermost. Think what the Pharisees felt/thought when called "white washed tombs"! The ultimate insult in that they were being called unclean by a Rabbi having been accused of being in contact with the dead, but, HE was right!!
    AND, Trump is taking advantage of what You do on Saturday night, FREE SPEECH !!
    Keep up the Good Work, Four String Dude! (You may quote me in Your monologue, so I wont have to !!! GPW,MD

    What an impressive young man Avi Gupta is!!! It's refreshing to read about young people who aren't waiting for all the free college and health care---and, really there are a lot who don't get written about (mainly the ones who haven't chosen berkely and like schools for "further" education. Hats off to Avi Gupta and I'm betting he'll go far in this life!!!

    I was reading about the education tragedy. Education does need to go back to local and state control. We could spend our federal taxes that are allocated for education right in our home states. Need to get rid of the teachers' unions. What I have seen are bad teachers who are "reassigned" instead of getting fired, and, of course, the extra all expense paid vacation for those put on leave--with pay. I used to be a substitute nurse at our schools. There were kids who needed medication (of various kinds) and when they did not show up to get them, I'd go to the classroom. The teachers were po'd because I was disrupting their state test preparation. But, don't worry about whether or not the student really needed to take the med, or if it could be put off, just don't interrupt their process!!! I always wondered--exactly when did they actually get to teach the kids?

    I am reminded of a fb post about the difference between President Trump and other Presidents. Other Presidents were more apt to mealy-mouth around, hem and haw instead of giving straight answers. Contrary to what the NYT thinks--we were saying-well, you know EXACTLY where President Trump stands on issues, and he's not afraid to call a spade a spade ie: false news via cnn and friends--it IS false news!!! I also think, gee, don't think I would have said that, or maybe I would have said it a little differently--but, he is what he is and I don't have to wonder where he stands.

    I enjoy your newsletters and your show, and always feel better after reading the letter--and your humor makes it even better!!!

    So Representative Smallmind thinks it is an "abuse of power" for a president to remove an ambassador? How does he think the Lady ambassador got her job? Obama removed the former ambassador, and put her in. It s one of the responsibilities of the president to choose ambassadors who are his personal representative to the country of their posting. Traditionally, all the ambassadors present their resignations, and if the new President chooses to do so, he can retain them in office. Obama appointees ;largely did not submit rsignations, so Trump had to fire them. The obama ambassador to Ulkraine should have been fired the first day (right after Comey, and a bunch of other losers).
