Last week, investigative reporter John Solomon revealed that the mysterious “black ledger” purported to show cash payments originating in Ukraine to then-campaign director Paul Manafort, who now rots in jail, was almost certainly a forgery, as multiple sources emphatically maintain that no cash payments were ever made. On Sunday, during a wide-ranging interview with Maria Bartiromo on SUNDAY MORNING FUTURES, Trump attorney Rudy Guiliani offered evidence highly suggestive that the Democratic National Committee was involved in targeting Manafort.

He brought in a memo from Alexandra Chalupa of the DNC to her boss dated May 3, 2016, and reading in part, “I invited Michael Isikoff [of THE NEW YORK TIMES], whom I’ve been working with for the past few weeks, and connected him to the Ukrainians to talk about Paul Manafort.”

With gratitude,

FEATURED STORY

Democratic Presidential Race Updates

By Mike Huckabee

Watch climate justice warrior Elizabeth Warren try to hide behind an aide when she realizes a video camera is on her as she disembarks from a private jet.

One of the many commercials Mike Bloomberg is blowing his billions on blames President Trump for breaking his promise to cut spending. Meanwhile, on Sunday, Trump released a proposed budget that would cut $4.4 trillion in spending over the next 10 years, and it was immediately declared “dead on arrival” in the Democratic House, which is where budgets are written, except in years when Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are in charge and never get around to writing one at all.

Bloomberg also managed the neat trick of managing to insult and infuriate both Midwestern Trump supporters and transgender activists with the same clueless, arrogant comment. At least give him points for efficiency.

Credit where credit is due: Rolling Stone makes the good point that Pete Buttigieg has called for doing away with the Electoral College because the popular vote should reign supreme, then he declared victory in Iowa despite Bernie Sanders winning the popular vote.

Joe Biden is sort of like a verbal slot machine. Pull the handle and you never know what unprecedented combination of words might drop out of his mouth. Lately, he’s been dispensing some oddly hostile insults to voters at campaign stops, but Sunday in New Hampshire, he may have set a new record. A woman asked how voters can trust that he can turn his campaign around. He asked if she’d ever been in a caucus, and when she said yes, he replied, “No, you haven’t. You’re a lying, dog-faced pony soldier.” May I just reply: "Whaaaaa...?!?"

I seldom say this, but kudos to Slate.com for doing the thankless detective work of trying to track down the origins of that particular bowl of Joe Biden word salad.

I wanted to make sure you also read these comments:

The staff of Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas deserve a Huck’s Hero salute for what they did for a genuine American hero, Marine veteran William Preston Moore. Moore had waged a long battle against two different attacks of medulloblastom, a rare form of cancer. After suffering through multiple brain surgeries and a bone marrow transplant, his immune system was weak, and he was stricken with pneumonia. His wife Sarah realized the end was here, so she turned to the hospital staffers who had worked so hard to save him and asked them for one last request.

Click the link to read the full story and see the moving photos showing how, within one hour, they arranged a full Marine Corps honor walk and flag ceremony, and lined the hallways of the hospital to pay their respects as fellow Marines escorted his body out of the hospital to his final resting place.

The House Democratic impeachment managers are proving to be just as bad at dealing with reality as some Hollywood celebrities are. During a Friday appearance on CNN, they declared that just because the Senate acquitted President Trump, he hadn’t really been acquitted. And because he didn’t admit wrongdoing or suffer consequences (two things that usually don’t happen when someone is acquitted), he wasn’t really “exonerated.”

https://www.westernjournal.com/house-managers-finally-lose-touch-reality-president-not-exonerated/

Yes, I know this is annoying, but it’s also entirely predictable. Remember, these are the same people who’ve been insisting for three years that Trump didn’t really win the 2016 election, that he’s not the legitimate President (and certainly “not THEIR President”), and that the Mueller report didn’t exonerate him (fun fact: prosecutors don’t “exonerate” anyone; they look for evidence of a crime and then decide whether to charge or not; and Mueller found no evidence of any collusion with Russia, so there were no charges; and without charges, there can be no “exoneration” on the charges.)

I suppose we could play their game and point out that since an impeachment inquiry must be launched by the House, not just the Speaker; the inquiry lacked due process; the vote was purely partisan; and the “articles” cited no high crimes or misdemeanors, then they’re right. Trump couldn’t be “acquitted” because he was never legitimately “impeached” in the first place.

It must be fun going around creating your own reality, but the Democrats are living proof that it’s ultimately frustrating and leads to madness when your self-delusions start colliding too hard with actual reality.

    I find it very difficult to watch the debates. It's really sad that those candidates have lived the good life in the United States, and still have the mindset of spoiled brats, with the radical ideas they have in mind for our country. I keep my TV on Fox news most of the time, so I'm in the know about most of what is going on, but a lot of it is just painful. My mother was an election officer from the time I was in grade school, and I grew up on politic. She ranted to us about some of the candidates and praised others. The last 6 years of working elections, she was election judge, and I've never gotten so stressed, as the last 9 years over the changes that are threatening our country. One of my sons is a minister, and churches are being attacked. One of my sons is a Chief Deputy Sheriff, and the police are being targeted. The youngest is an operation manager at Hydrochem, and plants are being threatened. Getting to be a bit rough on this old great grandmother! I pray daily (sometimes all day) that sanity returns to this country and we can rest easy that we have people with brains in our government again. Thanks for calling my attention to some of the more important news. It helps.

    I read a post where the person says "acquitted" does not mean "not guilty." But reading an account of the vote call, it was reported they answered with "guilty" or "not guilty"--and, since the "not guilties" won, it would seem he is well---not guilty!!! smh Too bad they couldn't all be forced into a room where someone would go step-by-step about the impeachment process in the house--starting with the entire body has to vote.

    What a wonderful tribute for Marine veteran William Preston Moore. Thank him and his family for his service.

    joe's may or may not have been from any movie (and how long til he came up with that?) but I'm pretty much at a loss why it was pertinent to use it here. This student that I assume he has never seen before--joe knows HOW whether or not she has ever attended a caucus? Maybe it's because he has never seen her at one? It didn't sound like there was a whole lot of people in Iowa---but he can't possibly have seen everyone. Just trying to be assertive, masterful, and failing pretty horribly.

    It seems (according to reports) that ocasio is blaming the NRA, Mitch McConnell and lack of gun control. Really? I'm not sure how any of them are to blame (and she forgot President Trump and climate "change.") Didn't the shootings take place in NY--where there are pretty darn strict gun control laws (were the guns used legally obtained? Was this guy a felon wasn't supposed to have a gun?) Isn't NYC where the mayor pretty much has told criminals and thugs it's okay to go after officers? NYC where even shooters who might be arrested are told to go on home, come back on this date? I think she needs to do some critical thinking before laying blame on people who didn't have a thing to do with the shooting.

    To ignore Bloomberg, or to take him lightly, is to seriously underestimate the opposition. You cannot really believe that a competent & powerful politician such as Obama is just going to shrug and let the dems lose the election, just because they are currently running a group of mentally challenged children (regardless of age. To me, Bloomberg would be a national disaster, but Bloomberg is the only one of them that knows how to win an an election. His ads - I don't at all like his positions - are well designed and at least are not flat out crazy. The current group of dems chatting with each other are nothings. Bloomberg is the one Trump must beat in Nov.
