The Democratic Party and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media are once again treating us to their impersonation of Chicken Little.

THE SKY IS FALLING! THE SKY IS FALLING!

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump said he would be willing to listen to foreign governments if they approached him with information on a political rival.

Trump made the admission during an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, adding that he would not necessarily contact the FBI if such an approach was made. Video from the interview went public Wednesday evening.

“I think I’d want to hear it… I think you might want to listen, there isn’t anything wrong with listening,” he said.

“If somebody called from a country, Norway, [and said] ‘we have information on your opponent’ — oh, I think I’d want to hear it.”

The president continued in the interview: “Somebody comes up and says, ‘hey, I have information on your opponent,’ do you call the FBI?

“I’ll tell you what, I’ve seen a lot of things over my life. I don’t think in my whole life I’ve ever called the FBI. In my whole life. You don’t call the FBI. You throw somebody out of your office, you do whatever you do.”

When pressed on the issue by Stephanopoulos, Trump responded: “Oh, give me a break — life doesn’t work that way.”

Many Democrats reacted with outrage. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., a 2020 candidate for president, tweeted in response: “It’s time for Congress to begin impeachment hearings.”

The role of Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., in organizing a 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer offering negative information on Hillary Clinton was a focus of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian meddling in the last presidential campaign.

Mueller painstakingly documented Russian efforts to boost Trump’s campaign and undermine Clinton’s. It did not establish a criminal conspiracy between Russia and Trump’s campaign.

Trump repeatedly praised WikiLeaks in 2016 and celebrated information exposed by Russian hackers.

Trump’s comments came just a month after he pledged not to use information stolen by foreign adversaries in his 2020 re-election campaign.

During a question-and-answer session with reporters in the Oval Office last month, Trump said he “would certainly agree to” that commitment.

“I don’t need it,” he said as he met with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. “All I need is the opponents that I’m looking at.”

FBI Director Christopher Wray told lawmakers that Donald Trump Jr. should have called his agency to report the offer.

However, Trump, who nominated Wray to the role in 2017, told ABC News he disagreed. “The FBI director is wrong,” the president said.

Asked whether his advisers should accept information on an opponent from Russia, China or another nation or call the FBI this time, Trump said, “I think maybe you do both,” expressing openness to reviewing the information.

President Trump certainly enjoys “yanking the chains” of the perpetually aggrieved Democrats, doesn’t he?

If you read what he said closely, you will see that he never says that he would act upon information given to him about a political opponent by a foreign power.

He simply says that he would like to hear it.

I cracked up when he told Clintonista George Stephanopolous that “life doesn’t work that way” because the president is exactly right…it doesn’t.

When you get an e-mail from an African Prince stating that he is holding millions of dollars meant for you and to receive it all you have to do is give him your personal information including credit card numbers and back account information, do you call the authorities?

Why not?

Because you read it and figured out that it was a bunch of hogwash all by yourself with no one else’s involvement necessary.

That it what Trump was saying.

Also, if you read the Trump’s last statement in the above article, he states that he thinks that his advisers should accept information about a Trump opponent from a foreign country AND call the FBI.

However, I guarantee you that it not what the impeachment-hungry Democrats heard.

They heard an impeachable offense…even though it isn’t one.

I believe that the president is purposefully keeping the Democratic Politicians running around like Chicken Little screaming for his impeachment.

The Democrats have devolved into a bunch of Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, running around willy-nilly yelling “Off with his head”!

They are not getting anything accomplished by continuing to push for Trump’s impeachment except their own defeat in the 2020 Presidential Election.

The Democrats hyperbolic daily display of Trump Derangement Syndrome, may play well on the coasts. but Americans living in the Heartland are fed up with them wasting taxpayers’ money while attempting to reinvestigate the Mueller Report simply because they are upset that Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who worked with Hillary Clinton, let them down.

The Democrats are so blinded by hateful rage that they do not realize that President Trump is using their animosity toward him to make them react to every innocent remark he makes, further deepening the hole which they have dug for themselves with the voting public.

President Trump is extremely adroit and is simply following the old axiom,

If your enemy is busy digging a hole for himself…hand him a second shovel.

Until He Comes,

Gillibrand Tap Dances Around the Issues, Attacks Fox News at Their Townhall…Have the Dems Painted Themselves in a Corner?

The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so. – President Ronald Reagan

FoxNews.com reports that

Things got heated at a Fox News town hall in Iowa Sunday when Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y. used the platform to blame the network for allowing discussions of infanticide in debates about abortion and women’s reproductive rights.

When asked by a retired pediatric nurse named Susan about her stance on late-term abortions, Gillibrand pivoted to an attack on Fox News.

Gillibrand accused Fox of fueling what she called the infanticide “red herring” by devoting 6.5 hours of coverage to the debate, including comments from guests on the network.

“What we have created, unfortunately, is a false choice and a false narrative,” Gillibrand said of the climate surrounding the issue. “And Chris, I want to talk about the role that Fox News plays in this because it’s a problem. I can tell you before President Trump gave his State of the Union, Fox News talked about infanticide.”

“Infanticide doesn’t exist,” she said, at which point “Fox News Sunday” host and town hall moderator Chris Wallace cut her off.

“Senator, I just want to say, we’ve brought you here for an hour,” Wallace said. “We’ve treated you very fairly. I understand that maybe to make your credentials with the Democrats who are not appearing on Fox News you want to attack us. I’m not sure it’s frankly very polite when we’ve invited you to be here.”

Gillibrand, who is polling at around one percent according to most national and early voting state polls, has yet to secure the 65,000 individual donor campaign contributions necessary to qualify her for the late June and July primary debates and hoped to use her platform on Fox to bolster support.

“I’ll do it in a polite way,” Gillibrand countered.

“Instead of talking about Fox News why don’t you answer Susan’s question,” Wallace said redirecting the senator to her stance on late-term abortions.

Gillibrand, a fervent supporter of abortion rights, has previously vowed to only nominate federal court judges who support Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion across the nation. She repeated that position during Sunday night’s event at the University of Dubuque.

“Does that mean that you’re okay with other presidents having their own litmus tests?” Wallace asked her. “Maybe a pro-life president might say ‘I’ll only appoint people who will overturn Roe v Wade.’ Because the tradition in this country has been [the] independence of the judiciary and the idea that a judge, once appointed, will judge each case on its merits and not on the basis of a promise made, a political promise to get that position.”

“I think it’s changed. That’s the way it used to be before President Trump,” Gillibrand responded. “President Trump said he would only appoint judges that would overturn Roe v. Wade.”

“He already did and he’s doing it,” she said. “The rules have changed.”

Gillibrand also accused Republicans of creating a “false narrative” that doctors allow healthy babies to die after they are born in order to ease the passage of the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors” bill, legislation that would make it a felony for a doctor to harm or neglect a baby who survives an attempted abortion.

Gillibrand went on to say that President Trump “emboldened legislatures in over 30 states to begin to criminalize” a woman’s decision to have an abortion, state laws that have been challenged in courts across the nation because of their direct conflict with the precedent set by the Constitution.

The senator slammed a member of her own party, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, for signing a bill on Thursday that would prohibit women from having an abortion once a baby’s heartbeat is detected, in almost all cases. Gillibrand accused Edwards of “turning his back on Louisiana women by signing this shameful bill,” in a statement on Twitter Thursday.

Either senator Gillibrand has forgotten Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s comments from this past January or she wants US to forget them.

An Abortion Bill was presented to the Virginia State legislature by Democratic delegate Kathy Tran, the chief sponsor of the bill, who stated that her legislation would allow a woman to receive an abortion even while she was going into labor.

Per NationalReview.com, an interviewer on WTOP’s “Ask The Governor” asked Northam whether he supports the bill and asked him to explain Tran’s comment.

“This is why decisions such as this should be made by providers, physicians, and the mothers and fathers that are involved,” Northam said. “When we talk about third-trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of obviously the mother, with the consent of the physician — more than one physician, by the way — and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities. There may be a fetus that’s non-viable.”

Northam is either unaware of the specifics of the bill, or he’s lying about them. Tran’s legislation explicitly removes the current requirement that three physicians agree that a woman is in need of a late-term abortion. The new bill would require only the consent of the mother and of the physician performing the abortion. But he went on to say something even more heinous.

“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen,” he continued. “The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

From House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s ineffectual attempt at placating the young Social Justice Warriors at her conference appearance in California to Gillibrand’s imitation of Ginger Rogers on last night’s Fox News Townhall to Joe Biden’s imitation of the Invisible Man, the Democrats appear to have painted themselves into a corner.

The Democratic Party Hierarchy have been continuously “feeding the crocodile”, i.e. , the Far Left Young Socialists within their party who want Trump’s Impeachment, a Marxist Form of Government, and Infanticide and they want it NOW.

There is one problem with all of that.

The overwhelming majority of Americans do not want what they want.

And, if the Democrats succeed in the installation of any combination of the three, they will be shut out of winning the presidency for years to come.

Pelosi realizes that Trump cannot be impeached without a legitimate reason. She also knows that the Senate will not vote for impeachment even if the House votes for it.

She, along with her fellow Democratic Leaders, no matter what they may say publically, also realize that President Trump has brought back a vibrant American Economy and Job Market, purring along on the engines of capitalism.

“Democratic Socialism” will be a tough sell as a platform to run on.

Finally, average Americans want no part of killing babies.

That is why the Democrats have received such a huge negative reaction to the passage of the New York State Late Term Abortion Bill as well as Virginia’s Bill and Gov. Northam’s callous remarks.

So, where does that leave the Democrats and their aspiring Presidential Candidates, like Senate Gillibrand?

Evidently, it leaves them tap dancing around the truth.

It promises to be an entertaining, albeit futile, Democrat Primary Season.

Fred Astaire, they ain’t.

Until He Comes,
