It was great fun going on JUSTICE WITH JUDGE JEANINE (as in Pirro) this weekend to talk with her and fellow guest Dan Bongino about last week’s twin disasters: 1) Mueller’s disconnected testimony, and 2) Jerrold Nadler’s surreal press conference afterwards.
As for the Mueller hearings that took place on Wednesday, I had to say that if the Democrats thought they were going to “put a movie to the book” that was the special counsel report, that movie turned out to be WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S. We could all laugh because we'd seen for ourselves that there was very little brain activity on Mueller’s part --- just enough to make sure that any questions about the Steele dossier and the FBI’s activities were not answered. Staying away from what was NOT supposed to be answered seemed to be Mueller's most important consideration.
As lost as he appeared at times, Mueller was consistent in one thing: he just would not “go there.” In fact, he simply refused to answer over a hundred questions. I didn’t even know a witness could do that --- pick and choose the questions to answer and not to answer. You’re supposed to either answer every question or take the Fifth Amendment on everything. Say, who’s obstructing justice around here?

There were two shootings over the weekend on opposite ends of the nation. Sunday night at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Northern California, a man cut through the fence and opened fire on the crowd, injuring fifteen people and killing three, including a six-year-old boy. Police quickly reacted and fatally shot the assailant.
This happened just 24 hours after a gunman opened fire at a community event in Brooklyn, killing one man and injuring 11 other people before fleeing. At this writing, the suspect is still at large.
In both cases, Democratic politicians, particularly Presidential candidates, almost immediately called for more gun laws, without yet knowing whether they would have made any difference, and without regard to the fact that these shootings happened in two of the most liberal states with some of the strictest gun laws in America. A number also condemned as useless the offering of prayers for the victims.
I’m going to go ahead and pray for the victims anyway, and I hope you will, too. I believe in the power of prayer, and I think I have more reason to believe in that than they have for what they believe is the solution to such atrocities.
"Gender neutral" bathrooms
By Mike Huckabee
The Governor of Illinois just signed a bill to make all single-occupancy bathrooms in public buildings “gender-neutral” as of January 1, 2020.
I’ve written a lot about how “trans rights” have shoved women’s rights to the end of the line, in everything from privacy rights to sports. You might think this one won’t matter because they’re single occupancy bathrooms, right? Well, women, think about it: have you ever seen the condition that men leave public bathrooms in and thought, “Thank goodness I don’t have to use the men’s bathroom!” Well, in Illinois, now they’ll all be that way. You might want to start carrying rubber gloves and disinfectant in your purse.
NYC arrests made
By Mike Huckabee
Here’s a little good news: New York City Police have made several arrests in that disgusting, caught-on-video attack last week in which officers were cursed, taunted and soaked with water as they restrained themselves from acting.
This was taken by many, including President Trump on Twitter, as an indication of just how worm-infested the Big Apple has become (can I say the word “infested,” or is that racist now in all contexts?) since Bill DeBlasio took over as Mayor. DeBlasio was, of course, outraged, and insulted Trump on Twitter, because insulting people on Twitter is just not something that anyone should do who deserves to be President, right?
DeBlasio has brought back the “hands-off, don’t prosecute the small crimes” idiocy that helped create the mess Rudy Giuliani had to turn around, and that we’re seeing instituted all across America, thanks to the election of “progressive” DA’s in one-party, low-turnout primaries targeted by far-left groups.
By the way, Rudy agrees:
I’m used to seeing Democrats blame President Trump for everything from illegal immigration to their own psychological problems, but if thugs in New York no longer respect the police, I hardly think that Bill DeBlasio can lay that on the doorstep of Donald Trump.
I wanted to make sure you also read these comments
You know Rep. Jerry Nadler’s impeachment case against President Trump is on shaky ground when even CNN’s Jake Tapper explains to him that the Mueller quote he’s basing it on was retracted by Mueller himself on national TV. This is worth reading all the way through because if you get deep enough, it’s one of the funniest exchanges of baffling doubletalk since the early seasons of “MASH” were on TV.
Proof the World Is Going Mad: Schools in Victoria, Australia, are introducing a program on “sexual consent” to young children that uses a “sloppy kiss from grandma” as an example of behavior that should require consent. I assume that your aunt’s cheek pinches and your uncle’s knock-knock jokes would also be classified as “torture” now.
In case you missed “Face The Nation” Sunday, Democratic Presidential hopeful Julian Castro was asked why he supported and praised border policies under Obama that he’s now fiercely attacking under Trump. Watch him explain how the two are different. They aren’t, except that Trump is now President – and that makes the identical policies completely different.
