Evening Edition - July 27

July 27, 2019

Having had their dead impeachment horse decompose on national TV this week, you’d think the Democrats might want to give up and move on to, oh, I don’t know…maybe legislating?  But you would be wrong.

Rep. Jerry Nadler announced that his House Judiciary Committee is, in effect, launching an official impeachment probe, and they’re “going to court” to try to get Trump’s personal tax records, personal email and text messages of his daughter, son-in-law and other staffers, and basically any dirt they can possibly root through looking for any grounds for the impeachment they’ve been demanding since Election night (I hope that if he roots through Ivana’s garbage, he can restrain himself from licking her discarded ice cream wrappers.) 

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/breaking-house-dems-announce-impeachment-investigation/

For the record, this is not the way impeachment is supposed to work.  A President commits “high crimes and misdemeanors” first, and then the House considers impeachment hearings.  You don’t schedule the impeachment, then go on a scavenger hunt for grounds.

Over the next six weeks, Congress will be out of session, and most members will be home, talking (and hopefully, listening) to their constituents.  Republicans will be able to point to a booming economy, record low unemployment, rising wages and their attempts to deal with border security (recent polls show immigration – more accurately, illegal immigration – is the #1 concern of voters.) 

What accomplishments will Democrats point to?  Their crazy far-left wing is furious that they haven’t impeached Trump yet for no reason, while the remaining sensible Democrats will ask why they’ve wasted their first seven months back in power doing nothing but trying to impeach the President (and defending the divisive, socialist, anti-Semitic, anti-American rhetoric of their most radical members.) 

I don’t want to give them any advice that might help them win reelection, but how hard is it to figure out that maybe they should be concentrating more on legislation and trying to help Americans than on trying to unseat their political opponent without going to the trouble of actually winning an election? 

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

 

The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 along the ideological divide (that in itself is another Trump win) to overrule lower courts’ blocks on Trump using $2.5 billion in Pentagon funds for border wall construction after declaring a national emergency.  Let’s hope this represents not only a step toward serious border security enforcement, but also a long-overdue reining in of activist liberal federal judges who seem to think they have more power than the President over dealing with immigration and determining national emergencies.  There’s a reason why the writers of the Constitution placed the power to take swift action to deal with a national emergency into the hands of a single chief executive elected by the entire nation and not into the wheelhouse of 535 endlessly-bickering legislators or an untold number of power-drunk federal judges.      

Democrats are screaming in fury (honestly, when are they not these days?)  Some claim the Court is letting Trump spend the money on a “phony emergency” at the border.  Oh, is it a “phony emergency” again?  For a long time, it was a phony emergency, or more popularly, a “manufactured crisis.”  Then when it became so obviously out of control that even the New York Times had to admit it was a crisis, it became useful to call it a real emergency so that Trump could be slammed as cruel for the way the hordes of illegal border crossers were being treated.  Now that Trump has won his court battle to exercise his power to deal with it, I guess it’s “phony” again.  Funny how the objective reality of the crisis changes, depending on what would be the most politically useful narrative for the Democrats. 

And of course, they’re also accusing Trump of using executive orders to try to get around Congress.  Again, remind me: is that bad now?  Because when Obama did it, it was “bold, necessary action” and an example of real leadership. 

Someone needs to issue daily online bulletins to help us all keep up with the constant shifts in the left’s standards of morality.

    Quoting you:
    "Again, remind me: is that bad now? Because when Obama did it, it was “bold, necessary action” and an example of real leadership". (About Executive Orders)

    "Someone needs to issue daily online bulletins to help us all keep up with the constant shifts in the left’s standards of morality."

    (I hope that someone will be you. I surely don't have the coverage that you do. However, that may take more time and effort that you have, so I understand you wanting someone else to do it. I hope you find someone to fill this role.)

    Love your commentaries and your empathy for the Dim's. I believe America NEEDS a dual political system but 3rd & 4th Parties are a waste of effort. I'm so old I remember when Both parties had Liberal and Conservative and in between points of view and "The News" was given based on FACTS and then you had the OPINION writers and we Stupid Voters were allowed to make up our own minds. Of course this was also a period of two parent households and RAISING the Next Generation was more important than two parents working to "Keep UP with the Joneses". Today's voters now have to make up their minds based on 15 second Sound Bites or whatever the late night show script readers pass as funny for the Truth. I wish you would quit giving GOOD advice to the left as they MIGHT wake up and take it and we will be saddled with four more years of Pelosi being manipulated by AOC & company and America will suffer for it.

    Dear Governor Huckabee,
    I'm sometimes at a loss of words for the President & his tweets. I personally don't think the tweets between him & Congressman Cummings was called for. I know that the President isn't a racist, but his tweets do have a twist to them. I've written the White House on several occassions regarding this, but all I get is a "generic response." I truly believe if he continues with these tweets he will lose his supporters. Like I always said, you get more with honey, than vinegar! I know you could only turn your cheek so many times. He could win if he sticks with his policies, & go after the "squad" and the extreme radical left wing's policies! I wish he would listen to someone!!! I'll vote for him, but he has, I believe an uphill battle. Everything seems to be backfiring on him (N. Korea, China, Iran). Some supporters like what he says, it's how he says it. There are ways to express yourself without getting blasted. Also, we know that Fox is the only news that reports the news. He's up against the world! Thanks for listening, just venting.

    There are so many egregious and illegal acts that Democrats have been doing for years, yet there seems to be no one willing to take action that would result in arrest. Is the deep state so entrenched in Washington that no one can be found who can actually do something about the problem, rather than just note that so much is wrong? I am sad to witness death of the USA.

    If president Trump can use some of the billions that he is getting from the tarrifs he put on China to the farmers, why can't he use some of that money for the border wall?

    Yeah, Dems are displeased that Hillary lost. But Republicans are mostly just quiet. Well, Romney's not so quite, criticizing the very concept of Trump. I wager that a big part of the probem is that Trump represents the Non-elite, and the Elite may lose some/a trifling amound of their power.
    Not being Elite, I am all for the concept of a Trump, though I may not agree with all of his views.

    Who? Who was arrested by Mueller and his attack group most Hillary backers as being Russian backers and helped make Pres Trump our President? M ost I saw were arrested like Manafort for business and not telling what he had done as a foreign investor? So if Pres Trump was involved with helping Russia to help him be President who around him was also guilty? Then when further investigation shows this whole Russia thing was a set up per others like possibly Hillary, FBI and others to try to take down this President and lies then WHAT? How maybe even certain TV groups like CNN and MSNBC set up fake info to also try to take down Pres Trump? Now we get a daily dose of Racism supposedly per the Pres and he is a racist give me a break. Maybe I am a racist who voted for Pres Obama his last time, I am old white lady go to a black man dentist in Georgia golly gee such a racist. This is a manipulation of the blacks and others to keep the votes on one side. Wake up voters in America and not be so misled per your race? Ask why? Ask why Baltimore that one area is a disaster HOW and WHY? Not just it was an attack on Cummings who weekly attacks this President? WHY?

    Agree with your comments. I listen to the dems and can't believe this is my government in action. They have become vile thugs and a party of socialist, so far left that I don't recognize them. Our two party system is done and over.

    I just have to tell you that I watched you the other night and you defended Pelosi and said she was a great legislator and a smart politician. After watching and listening to her demean the President, deny everything and anything good from the Republicans, I don't think so. The only legislation that I remember her pushing was Obamacare. Anyway, I love your show on TBN, love your honesty and appreciate your just plain down home humor and love of the Lord. I will always watch when you are on. BTW, why hasn't CNN or MSNBC had you on? Can't understand that. God Bless you and your family with grace, peace and goodness.

    Mr. Huckabee, please inform the senate to induct a law that states as follows; please invert a law that states unless the news media in for America, they shall not have no rights to misinform the public with lies and cover all actions taken against President Trump; in other words if the media is one sided, then there will be no right for them to publish false hood against America!!!!??????????????

    If the Dimocrats succeed in getting the Trump Tax Returns and Financial Records, the citizen public should be entitled to see the Tax Returns, Financial Records, and FBI Background Checks of every member of Congress for a number of years!!! We need to identify those who have profited from their position through insider trading, directing contracts to friends and family, etc. as well as those with criminal records!

    This will probably be the last time I ever I’ll make a comment. It seems every time I make comments I’m just ignored. I hate the way the country is going. I do not believe that not one person is going to go to jail over all this. I do believe that the things keep going the way they are we’re going to end up in a shooting war in this country. Personally I don’t wish to live to see it but I probably will. Revolutions happened because of things like this . What else can be said right and wrong or good and evil. I wish the Lord would step in and take care of it. But I believe that he’ll let us go through this very very nasty situation before he’ll come . I’m no angel but I sure as heck don’t want to follow the devil. I will defend what’s mine as many will God help us all respond or not last message.

    Governor, I'm sorry to say that they have NO morality and no sense! They've all gone berserk in trying to obfuscate the obvious illegality of what most of the Democrats have been doing - by continuously attacking Donald Trump!

    Rep Cummings district: see the photos of this district & he rants & raves about Trump while his district resembles LA or San Fran, fodder for 2020 race alone.
    Need drone view of his area & make photos pubic for MD Tourism

    Mark Levin's show on Fox News Sat., July 27, was the best, most intelligent presentation of America's disgraceful, ugly, un-American democrats and their likely unlawful (my word) acts against President Trump disguised as oversight. This show should be broadcast over and over again to the widest audience possible so the world knows America's democrats are a disgrace to America, democrat leaders are a disgrace to America, this is not how America's government works.

    I have been critical of Cummings of all people blasting our agents on the border I got a look at his back yard in Baltimore he has the problems LA SF and all democratic run cities people living like 3rd World leadership. Garbage on the landscapes broken doors and windows in the buildings lot of violent crime and for most of all low life living conditions or the people he represents. Cummings is a person that is not capable of fixing problems 20 years as a member of Congress these are his results. Nice work low IQ Low energy careless me first and only Congressman you are true to your party's policies and work. Keep your voters ignorant and you can stay away from the horrible condition that exist under your leadership. As a person you're not fit to call anyone out I know you U could not care less for you got yours and that's all that matters!!!!!!

    My guess is, if there wasn't something for the left/liberals to be outraged about, there would be no "news" for the msm to report on. Unless, of course, they would stoop so low (in the leftist/liberal eye) as to report on real issues which they have checked to be the real story. Like all that the current administration HAS accomplished.

    I do have liberal (just regular liberal, not off-the-cliff extreme) who do still think that there is a difference between obama's executive orders and those of President Trump. Different times, you know. Things were different "then." Bless their hearts.

    As usual Mike you’ve read my mind. Gosh I sure do wish you were Trumps personal counselor in this hog waller because it’s boot wearin time right now and the..... well let’s just say ITS GETTIN DEEP ??. He needs a good Christian man that listens to the Lord around him. I seriously hope there are some there that pray and hear so they can counsel him. As always Mike we love you and your family. All of you are a tremendous blessing to our nation and to God be the glory for the things he has done. Tell Sarah we sure do miss her. Boy she set’em straight and did it with such grace and class. I know you’re so proud of her as we are too. I love your show on TBN and I always enjoy when you contribute on Fox. Keep up the good work. I know the Lord is so proud of you and your dear family as we also are.

    Praying ????

    Well said!! I hope someone on the left is reading your evening editions. The left needs to be constantly reminded, "do onto others as you would have them do onto you". Obama said as long as he had a pen and a phone he did not need congress to act.

    Governor, I am pretty sure we are not alone in calling the democrats pure circus performers. Every time we read what they are doing it reminds us of the definition of an insane person: one who performs the same action over and over expecting different results each time. However, I for one, have never seen so many absolutely crazy people outside of an asylum such as the one we had on Markham years ago. It makes me nutty thinking about them holding jobs that were formerly considered positions of responsibilty. I understand that many members of the younger generation are said to be slower than we were in learning job skills and developing good work ethics but I am now firmly convinced that these supposedly mature Democrat Congressmembers haven't bloomed yet and probably never will.
