Idiotic Policy

December 7, 2019

Friday morning, three people were killed and 12 injured at U.S. Naval Air Station Pensacola in Florida when a Naval aviation student opened fire during a class.
In what I assume is a play for the small number of remaining Kamala Harris supporters’ votes, Joe Biden teased that he might pick her to be his Vice Presidential running mate.

In what might become a continuing (even daily) feature, here’s a round-up of what was being accomplished in Washington while the House Democrats were wasting time and taxpayer money on their Impeachment Theater:

The Senate confirmed four more Trump judicial nominees to federal courts, including one who defended the creator of the undercover videos that exposed Planned Parenthood’s barbaric practices.

The Trump Administration has finalized new regulations requiring hospitals to make all the prices they negotiate with insurers available to the public starting in 2021.

Finally, believe it or not, the House actually managed to pass a bipartisan bill with overwhelming support, one that Trump is expected to sign.  What could possibly be so universally popular that even House Democrats would put aside their anti-Trump “resistance” and join with Republicans to pass it?

It’s a bill to restrict those annoying robocalls.

Merry Christmas to us all!

Proven liars

December 5, 2019

While there’s a lot of talk about the blatant bias and lousy, lazy legal scholarship of “expert” witnesses on impeachment yesterday (Jonathan Turley the lone exception), we shouldn’t overlook the fact that a couple of them are also proven liars.

 In Yonkers, New York, an illegal immigrant from Mexico who was charged with first degree manslaughter in a gang assault was put back onto the streets by police after they ignored a detainer order from ICE and didn’t even notify ICE that he was being released.  Fortunately, ICE agents found him themselves.  ICE was unhappy, but Mayor Bill DeBlasio has made it clear to New Yorkers what his priorities are by tweeting to “immigrant communities” worried about ICE that “this is your city. We will do everything we can to protect you.” 

If only he could say the same about American citizens.

Also, a big salute to ICE agents in Philadelphia, who arrested an illegal immigrant from Guatemala on multiple charges including trafficking in child pornography and sexual assaults on minors, after local authorities defied two ICE detainer orders and released him TWICE.

When you vote next November, remember that top-tier Democratic Presidential candidates have vilified ICE and vowed to gut or abolish the agency.  They want to spread these release-violent-criminals policies nationwide, while simultaneously taking away guns from law-abiding citizens.

Don’t worry, though: Democratic politicians, Hollywood leftists and Silicon Valley socialist billionaires will still have armed security guards and walls around their neighborhoods, so they’ll be safe.  I know that will allay your main concern.

Terrible reviews

December 5, 2019

The terrible reviews of Wednesday’s House “impeachment” hearing are rolling out all over...
I know it’s hard to keep up with all the mid-level bureaucrats without a scorecard, but during Adam Schiff’s Titanic-like “impeachment” hearings, one person we never heard from...
As more and more details and documents emerge relating to the investigation of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma and the famous American political names connected to it...

What is really going on here?

November 27, 2019

I’ve already mentioned that Rep. Devin Nunes is threatening to sue CNN and the Daily Beast for running a story that alleges he secretly met in Vienna with Ukraine’s prosecutor last December to dig up dirt on Joe Biden and other Democrats.

About the IG Report

November 25, 2019

I don’t want to delve too deeply into the story of the FBI employee who reportedly altered a document as part of getting a FISA warrant to spy on a Trump campaign worker because so far, this is all news of the “advance leak” variety...

Protecting Life

November 23, 2019

I wrote earlier this week about recent victories for the radical abortion movement, like the court victory for those seeking to silence, punish and destroy the undercover reporters who exposed Planned Parenthood’s barbaric practices (that story is far from over; the appeal is already underway and it needed to get away from that shockingly biased judge.)

DACA Update

Not a great week

November 19, 2019

Last week wasn’t a great week in courts for those on the right.

Wait for it...

November 19, 2019

I wonder if Elizabeth Warren will delight in her own sides’ billionaires’ tears?

Today's Edition



Ready for another Schiffy week? I know, it’s a thoroughly distasteful mess, something most appropriate for viewing on the bottom of a bird cage. But after a week of witnesses who didn’t have a clue about Trump’s rationale in Ukraine, disagreed with his policies, thought they knew better, wanted to run things and could offer only hearsay “evidence,” we’re now supposedly going to hear from some witnesses with “firsthand knowledge.” And, you know what? I think it actually might get pretty good, especially if you like watching train wrecks in slow motion.

To set this up, recall that former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor, in his written statement last week, told the story about the member of his staff who, on July 26 –- the day after the “problematic” Trump/Zelensky phone call –- sat on a patio having lunch with Ambassador Sondland and two other people and overheard his conversation with President Trump. The staffer said he could hear Trump’s side of the conversation quite clearly, as the President was speaking so loudly that Sondland had to hold the phone away from his ear. Trump asked Sondland if the Ukrainians were ready to move forward with “the investigations,” and Sondland said they were.

“If It Weren’t For Double Standards…” Desk

By Mike Huckabee

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin conceded defeat to his Democratic rival after nine days of examining alleged ballot irregularities in his narrow loss.  I assume this means Bevin won’t be going around for the next few years, claiming he’s the real Governor of Kentucky.  But if he does, he shouldn’t expect any sympathy from the same liberal media outlets that have elevated losing Georgia  Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams to national heroine status for refusing to accept her election results.

At the link, Newsbusters examines the strikingly different tone of NPR’s coverage of Abrams and Bevin for very similar stories:

I never seem to run out of examples of the media treating Democrats and Republicans in polar opposite ways.  Last week, I noted how GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik was savaged for asserting her right to speak in Congress over Adam Schiff’s capricious and arbitrary silencing of her.  She was being rude and breaking the rules, while liberals like Elizabeth Warren who keep talking after being ruled out of order are heroically “persisting” in the face of sexist men trying to shut them up.

You’d think that would be bad enough, but over the weekend, it got even worse. Some leftists online circulated a Photoshopped picture of Stefanik appearing to extend her middle finger in Congress and used to denounce her as “trashy” and solicit donations for her Democratic opponent.  Even after they were forced to retract the fake photo, one CNN contributor defended it, claiming it was “believable” because Stefanik had been “somewhat obnoxious” during the hearing – what with demanding to speak and not knowing her place, I assume?

If a national “news” network like CNN is going to let people promote the old “fake but accurate” model, then I don’t want to hear any more whining about President Trump calling them “fake news.”  Their slogan should be “Fake news and proud of it!” 

Until then, the satirical site The Babylon Bee, where the blatantly fake news stories really are more believable than many stories on CNN, has a brilliant idea that would both boost airport revenues and make flying a much more pleasant experience.




I wanted to make sure you also read these comments:

As the week kicks off, I’m sure the liberal pundits will be chomping at the bit to trumpet Republican Eddie Rispone’s razor-thin loss to incumbent Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards in Louisiana on Saturday, despite President Trump staging three rallies in the state to boost Republican turnout.  The message will be that the base is turning against Trump, or that Republicans are losing support in the South.  That’s all wishful thinking.

I’ve written for years about the folly of trying to read national political trends into state and local races, which are often about things that have nothing to do with the ongoing soap opera in Washington.  The Louisiana Governor’s race is a prime example.  I won’t go into detail because Joe Cunningham, who writes about Louisiana issues for, already explained it quite well here:

The results have more to do with the kind of campaign Rispone ran, bad blood among many GOP voters over his primary tactics and the fact that Edwards ran as a pro-gun rights, anti-abortion moderate than Trump or the GOP’s relative popularity in Louisiana. As Cunningham notes, the Republicans have a super-majority in the Senate and close to one in the House, and they easily won all the other statewide races, so it seems likely that Rispone’s narrow loss was due to many Republicans rejecting him specifically. 

One thing I will add is that the Democratic side pulled out all the stops on voter turnout among minorities and union members, something that Republicans had better take into account in 2020.  When the next national election comes along, Republicans had better get out and vote as if America’s continued existence depends on it, because judging from the slate of Democrats up for election, it does. 

And before minorities and union members allow themselves to be exploited yet again by the Democrats, they might consider that their recently-created jobs, rising wages and good employer health plans may also go out of existence if they keep voting Democrat. 


Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley had some choice words for “Anonymous,” the alleged White House mole/saboteur who wrote an op-ed for the New York Times and parlayed it into a book deal, bragging about how a cadre of Deep Staters are thwarting President Trump’s agenda from within – because, you know, they know so much better than the people’s elected representative.  Some of Haley’s words for him/her include “arrogant,” “cowardly” and “offensive.”

There’s more at the link. Also, mark your calendars for next Saturday when Nikki Haley will have even more words to say as my guest on “Huckabee” on TBN.




The latest example of “Everything Trump Does Is an OUTRAGE!” involves the criticism of his weekend pardons of two Army veterans accused of war crimes.  Their defenders say they were defending themselves on the battlefield (one was charged with war crimes for killing an alleged Taliban bomb maker.)

At the link, Matt Margolis of PJ Media offers some more details, along with a few examples of people who got pardons from Barack Obama that liberals didn’t get OUTRAGED over in the least.

About that Louisiana election

A Tale of Two Countries

November 16, 2019

The strange dichotomy was also on display in the media coverage of the treatment of women in the hearing...
We've been praising the performance of New York Rep. Elise Stefanik during Schiff's "inquiry" hearings, and Schiff himself must have taken note of her skills and is appropriately wary. In fact, he used his own rules to shut her down AGAIN.

Hearing Update

November 15, 2019

As I write this, we’re partway through the second episode of “Impeachment Theater,” where today’s star non-witness is former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, who like many daytime TV stars is most sought-after for her ability to cry on cue.
As we head into the farcical public “impeachment inquiry” hearings starting Wednesday, House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff is doing everything he can to keep the name of the “whistleblower” (I prefer “Democratic operative/spy”) from becoming a part of the official record, let alone from being questioned live and in-person by Republicans such as John Ratcliffe and Jim Jordan. T

Today's Edition



Today marks the start of the World Series for political junkies: Grand High Inquisitor Adam Schiff finally opens his padlocked dungeon door and gives the public a glimpse into his Star Chamber, where he is judge, jury and executioner, setting all laws by personal whim, denying the accused basic due process rights and calling “witnesses” who didn’t actually see or hear anything.  In some cases, their own previous testimony has already discredited the charge that the Democrats are trying to press against Trump.

If you actually want to waste your time on this (and as a news commentator, I have to, but you don’t), here’s the equivalent of a show program telling you who will be testifying, when it starts, where you can watch it and all the other essential information about this monumentally non-essential and frivolous show trial.

The most important thing you need to remember if you do watch is that no matter how much these people harrumph and break down in tears because President Trump allegedly did something they disapprove of or fired them from their cushy jobs, as President, Trump sets foreign policy, not self-appointed and unelected “experts,” and he has the power to ignore their advice and even fire them at will.   (Or not fire them, even if the media claim he is firing them.)

It is nice, though, that the media have finally moved beyond their “denial” stage of dealing with the Deep State coup against Trump and jumped straight to “acceptance.” Too bad they also went past "acceptance" and right into "embracing" Deep State rule.

It would also also be great if they could finally get past their denial, anger, bargaining and depression over Trump being elected in 2016…

Schiff can't keep hiding Ciaramella and the coup

By Mike Huckabee

As we head into the farcical public “impeachment inquiry” hearings starting today, House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff is doing everything he can to keep the name of the “whistleblower” (I prefer “Democratic operative/spy”) from becoming a part of the official record, let alone from being questioned live and in-person by Republicans such as John Ratcliffe and Jim Jordan. This is in spite of the fact that EVERYONE knows who this individual is. You know it, I know it, we all know it, the American people know it.

The lawyers for this person, of the anti-Trump law firm Whistleblower Aid, are threatening anyone who exposes the name of Eric Ciaramella with punitive damages, and apparently they have intimidated a number of media outlets that might not otherwise hesitate to report Ciaramella’s name. That’s unfortunate; I think we all need to grow a spine. As Gregg Jarrett has explained, the “whistleblower” law says nothing about maintaining anonymity except to say that, under most circumstances, the intelligence community IG is not supposed to identify him.

Democrats say they’re trying to protect this person’s safety, as there have been death threats. Pardon me, but if the name of this individual is not yet known, how has he (“or she”) received death threats? By telepathy? And if he (“or she”) HAS received death threats, that cow is already out of the barn, wouldn't you say?




I wanted to make sure you also read these comments:

I always thought the “crying baby Trump” balloon was a moronic thing that said more about the people who keep inflating it and floating it around than it does the President.

(Aside on that issue: the CEO of Chase Bank just declared this “the most prosperous economy the world has ever seen.” So let’s fire the guy responsible: )

Still, that didn’t stop TDS sufferers from donating thousands of dollars to create the dumb balloon. But when its handlers tried to float it at a University of Alabama/LSU football game in Tuscaloosa, where leftist gasbags are not so popular, a local man took a knife to it and popped it. Now he’s facing criminal mischief charges, but Trump supporters have already started a GoFundMe account for his legal fees that at last check was over $43,000.

Pardon me if I can’t help thinking about all the better ways that money could have been spent if this supremely stupid object had never been created in the first place. But at least, it’s finally served a useful purpose by helping to expose the hypocrisy of the media. Conservatives online noted that liberal media described the “slashing” of the Baby Trump balloon in shocked and violent terms that they would never use in describing the killing of real babies by abortionists. As usual, Kurt Schlicther put it best:


Now that San Francisco has elected a DA who plans to legalize crime, the city’s only hope is that people will start to behave themselves on their own, once they have the penetrating eyes of glowering teenage climate radical Greta Thunberg staring down down at them like a giant “Big Brother is Watching You” poster from “1984.”



This is something any Canadian readers might want to know about: a petition to reinstate NHL announcing icon Don Cherry, fired on Remembrance Day (their version of Veterans Day) for complaining that the flood of immigrants should at least buy poppies to support the veterans who secured the free lifestyle they’re coming to Canada to take advantage of.

Canadian leftists are denouncing him as an intolerant racist who doesn’t deserve to have a job after just reelecting a liberal prime minister who has more examples of wearing blackface makeup in his past than he does demonstrable policy successes. For his part, Cherry is not backing down, apologizing or groveling.


Bible Verse of the Day (KJV)

he shall preserve thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in
from this time forth, and even for evermore."

A change in San Francisco

November 13, 2019

San Francisco, which is already suffering from unaffordable housing, rampant homelessness and needles and feces in the streets, got exactly what it didn’t need on Saturday...
