When CNN decides to do a documentary on your life, chances are very good that you are not a supporter of President Donald Trump.
Which is why it should be a stunner to no one that music legend Linda Ronstadt, who has a special airing on CNN on New Year’s Day, is not a fan of the president.
But, like any liberal desperately attempting to get the recognition that they had long ago, Ronstadt had to increase the rhetoric in recent comments,” Fox News reported.
In the CNN sitdown, Ronstadt revealed her supranuclear palsy diagnosis had become “a strain” on her family relations, particularly with Republican relatives in Tuscon, Arizona.
“Instead of talking about that, we’d sing together, we’d have a great time,” Ronstadt said.
“Singing is what brought your family together,” CNN anchor Anderson Cooper replied. “Yeah,” she chuckled.
“So, now that you don’t have singing…” Cooper followed.
“Now, I have to be careful because we’ve had so much taken away from us by this administration that I’m not willing to let them take my family relationships away,” she said.
“My family — the parts that are Republican were fairly rational Republicans. We don’t have that in our current White House,” she said.

It is so sad that a person has to be careful around their family because their politics could drive a wedge.
It shows you how insane their politics must be that it would cause them to not love people in their family.
How insane are her politics? Insane enough that she compared the president to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and Mexican illegal immigrants to the Jews.
“By the time he got established, he put his own people in place and stacked the courts and did what he had to do to consolidate his power,” she said.
“And, we got Hitler and he destroyed Germany, he destroyed centuries of intellectual history forward and backward,” she said.
“I think a lot of people, though, would be surprised to hear comparisons between what happened then and now,” Cooper said.
“If you read the history, you won’t be surprised. It’s exactly the same. Find a common enemy for everybody to hate,” she said.
“I was sure that Trump was going to get elected the day he announced, and I said it’s gonna be like Hitler, and the Mexicans are the new Jews. And, sure enough, that’s what he delivered, you know,” she said.
Is it? Show everyone the concentration camps were Mexicans are being slaughtered. She likely does not even grasp how antisemitic that comment is.
To compare the extermination of millions of Jewish people to taking care of immigrants before sending them back to their home nations is asinine.
But it is common for Hollywood liberals who have no grasp on reality and want to capture the fame they once had.
Lev Parnas, an indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani, has asked a court for permission to turn over the contents of Parnas’ phone and other documents to a House of Representatives panel for use in the Trump impeachment inquiry, his lawyer said on Monday.
Lawyer Joseph Bondy said in a tweet that the Justice Department on Tuesday would be producing the documents and the contents of the phone seized from Parnas when he was arrested in October.
The government “does not object” to Parnas handing over the documents to the House Intelligence Committee, subject to approval by the court, Bondy wrote in a letter to U.S. District Judge Paul Oetken in New York.
New: Lev Parnas is seeking permission to share a bunch of new material with House Intel, including the contents of an iPhonehttps://t.co/g1d538fbgG

Parnas, a Ukraine-born U.S. citizen, was charged alongside another Florida businessman, Belarus-born Igor Fruman, with illegally funneling money to a pro-Trump election committee and other politicians. Both have pleaded not guilty.
Giuliani has said Parnas and Fruman assisted him in investigating one of the Republican president’s political rivals, former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden, and Biden’s son Hunter, who served on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.
Trump was impeached by the Democratic-led House on Dec. 18 on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
The House intelligence panel played a leading role in the investigation, which focused on Trump’s effort to push Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open investigations into Biden, a leading contender to run against Trump in the 2020 election, and a debunked theory on election interference.
In the letter to Oetken, Bondy said review of the material, which the House panel had subpoenaed, was essential for its “ability to corroborate the strength” of Parnas’ potential testimony.

Bondy said he and Parnas did not know “whether we intend to produce the entirety of the materials, or a subset filtered for either privilege or relevancy.”
Bondy said in early November that Parnas was prepared to comply with requests for records and testimony from congressional impeachment investigators.

Hunter Biden is becoming a true thorn in the side of his dad, former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign for the Democrat nomination.
For his work as a board member for the Ukrainian gas company Burisma to paternity lawsuits with his former stripper lover, it has given is dad tons of questions to answer.
And the questions about his work at Burisma is going to get tougher as it has been shown that the younger Biden has some IRS issues from the year her worked for the company.
And we are using the word “work” in the most liberal way possible as he did not actually do anything for the company but provide his name.
The IRS place a tax lien of $112,805 on the younger Biden from 2015, a report by The Daily Caller News Foundation discovered.
“The federal agency issued the previously unreported lien in November 2018 and it seeks unpaid taxes for a year in which Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, served on the boards of the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings and the Chinese private equity firm BHR Partners,” The DCNF said.
“We have made a demand for payment of this liability, but it remains unpaid,” the IRS said in the notice it gave Biden, 49.
“Therefore, there is a lien in favor of the United States on all property and rights to property belonging to this taxpayer for the amount of these taxes,” it said.
The tax lien was issued against Hunter Biden and his ex-wife, Kathleen Biden, but was delivered to the same address Hunter Biden has on file with Connecticut’s Judicial Branch, an address that is also linked to his law firm, Owasco PC.

It does not appear that Hunter Biden has resolved his tax debt to the IRS. No corresponding lien release form has been filed with the Washington, D.C., Recorder of Deeds.
Hunter Biden’s lawyer, George Mesires, did not return multiple requests for comment asking whether Hunter Biden’s unpaid taxes from 2015 were related to his work with Burisma or BHR Partners and whether the lien has been released.
But that is not where it ends for Biden. Washington D.C. placed its own tax Lien on Biden and his wife Kathleen for $48,929 which was released in 2017.
Biden has avoided giving the court in his child support case any financial information so that support could be determined.
“It should, by now, be abundantly clear to the Court that the defendant is not going to answer or provide any of his discoverable financial information unless the Court forces him to do so,” the attorneys for his former lover Lunden Roberts said. “The defendant has provided no support for this child for over a year.
“The Court should not let the defendant continue to avoid his natural and legal duty to support his child by failing to provide basic information about his income, finances and lifestyle.
“This Court should compel the defendant to answer the interrogatories and requests for production documents in time for the January 7, 2020 hearing in this case,” they said.
Here is a decade of insanity and corruption coming from the Democrats summed up with a single brutal but entirely accurate cartoon:
Eight years of misdeeds by the Obama administration was completely overlooked by the so called impartial mainstream media.
Yet a sneeze from Trump is all it takes for Democrats and the media to go nuts.
It’s been a long three years, and the next five should be enough to push these insane Democrats over the abyss into electoral suicide.
In fact the last year has contained enough nuttiness for a normal decade. Here’s a look back using some additional cartoons:
A Look Back at a Year of the Anti-Trump Pelosi Run House With 13 Cartoons
It’s been a heck of a year with the Democrats in charge of the House of Representatives for the first time in the Trump era.
They campaigned on getting things done but the only thing they really wanted to get done was to impeach President Trump.
We’ve seen insanity masquerading as the voice of reason, and it’s all gone downhill from there.
So here is a look back at a year of the anti-Trump Nancy Pelosi run House of Representatives:
It started innocently enough, with a little New Years cheer:
Then all of the fun really began:
Nancy Pelosi quickly lost control of the House to the young Marxists:
We had the Mueller fiasco:
Then came the Ukraine charade and impeachment.
Which leaves us where we are today.
Stay tuned we can expect a lot more fun and Trump derangement from the Democrats in 2020.
Lets plan on doing everything we can in 2020 to make sure the President is re-elected and Democrats pay a heavy price at the polls for their misdeeds.
It is safe to say that the impeachment of President Donald Trump has been a disaster for Democrats who missed their target and hit themselves.
The polls have shown support for impeachment on the decline ever since the House had its inquiry, and some polls show the president defeating his top 2020 opponents in head to head contests.
There is also a good chance that the Democrats who voted for impeachment, who come from districts the president won, are going to have a tough time getting elected again.
And if that news was not bad enough for Democrats, new data from the U.S Census Bureau shows that Republicans are primed to increase their number of seats in the House.
“Based on Monday’s figures, Texas is poised to gain two congressional seats, while Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Montana, North Carolina and Oregon are each expected to gain one,” The Wall Street Journal said.
“Eight states are likely to lose one seat: Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, West Virginia and California. It would be California’s first such loss since it became a state in 1850,” it said.
Based on the reporting states that voted for President Trump are set to have a net gain of four seats whereas states that voted for Hillary Clinton will lose a net of three.
“The big states that are very much Democratic are in a loss situation,” Election Data Services President Kimball Brace said.
“Democrats say in Texas and Arizona, the growth of the Latino populations and new residents from other states could eventually turn them blue,” The Journal said.

“Democrats note how population movements in recent years have moved the partisan makeup of some states in their favor, including Virginia and Colorado,” it said.
The report contradicts a report given days ago by the Center for Immigration Studies that said Democrat states would gain 20 seats in the House.
The presence of all immigrants (naturalized citizens, legal residents, and illegal aliens) and their U.S.-born minor children will redistribute 26 seats in the House in 2020.
To put this number in perspective, changing the party of 21 members of the current Congress would flip the majority in the U.S. House.
Of the 26 seats that will be lost, 24 are from states that voted for Donald Trump in 2016. Of states that will gain House seats because of immigration, 19 seats will go to the solidly Democratic states of California, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Illinois. Texas is the only solidly Republican state that gains, while Florida is a swing state.
Illegal immigrants and their U.S.-born minor children will redistribute five seats in 2020, with Ohio, Michigan, Alabama, Minnesota, and West Virginia each losing one seat in 2020 that they otherwise would have had. California and Texas will each have two additional seats, and New York will have one additional seat.
Illegal immigrants alone in the 2020 will redistribute three seats, with Ohio, Alabama, and Minnesota each having one fewer seat than they otherwise would have had, while California, New York, and Texas will have one additional seat.
That report had us believing that the Democrats scheme to rig the House had worked, but this new report shows that it failed.
The Democrat policies and taxes in their states have driven so many people from them that they are going to take a major hit. And they deserve it.
Watch as Rep. Al Green says that the genesis of impeachment was when the President was running for office:
So there you have it!
The genesis of impeachment was before Trump even took office! Who knew?
Here is a partial transcript that adds more detail and is particularly damning regarding Democrat’s intent with regard to impeaching this president:
HAYES: You just mentioned political expediency and insincerity. Those are two charges that have been leveled against Democrats during this entire affair, particularly since September when the formal impeachment inquiry started. You play a starring role in those charges.
The argument goes like this of House Republicans and Trump and his allies, basically the Democrats wanted to impeach Donald Trump from day one.
They cast about looking for a set of facts that they plausibly use to do it and it was engineered to get to this point. Exhibit one, congressman Al Green who’s been calling for the man’s impeachment for two years now. What’s your response to that charge?
GREEN: Well, the genesis of impeachment, to be very candid with you, was when the president was running for office and he had members of his own party to talk about his unfitness to hold office.
The persons who were running against him, Mr. Romney spoke of his not being fit to hold office. Mr. Cruz made statements about it. So the president didn’t have the luxury of persons from his party having been on his side, as it were, throughout this entire ordeal.
Senator Graham has said some very harsh things about the president. With those things in mind and with the president’s behavior before us, firing Mr. Comey, who was investigating the intrusion of Russia into his campaign, our election, that was something that was not to be tolerated.
And the president has continued to try to thwart the efforts of Congress to investigate. With Mr. Mueller, the president by and through his White House counsel tried to get this done again, to deal with Mr. Mueller, to extricate him, remove him from the process.
The White House counsel has not testified before the Senate yet. My hope is that he will be among those that will be called. Now more specifically, I said that the president would claim that he was exonerated if there were impeachable actions that he performed and we did not move to perform our duty to impeach him.
He has distorted the truth. He has twisted it and tried to crush it to Earth. But truth crushed to Earth shall rise again and no lie can live forever. I think that we’re at a point now where the Senate is on trial.
Before there’s a trial in the Senate, the Senate is now on trial. Speaker Pelosi’s withholding the articles will give us an opportunity to find out whether there will be dignity and integrity as a part of the Senate’s trial.
And if the public sees that there’s not the dignity and not the integrity, it will not surprise me, wouldn’t surprise me one scintilla to see people coming to the actual trial itself.
They may not be in the room, they may not be in the Senate, but it wouldn’t surprise me if people came from across this country to be there at the time this trial is taking place so as to show their concern for a fair trial as opposed to a fake trial.
Current Democratic Party frontrunner “Slow” Joe Biden said, in response to a question, that he’d consider a Republican for Vice President but there was just one problem, as Reuters reports:
“Former Vice President Joe Biden, a leading contender for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, said on Monday he would consider choosing a Republican running mate if he is the party’s nominee next year.
The Democrats will do anything to avoid a trial in the Senate in order to protect Sleepy Joe Biden, and expose the millions and millions of dollars that “Where’s” Hunter, & possibly Joe, were paid by companies and countries for doing NOTHING. Joe wants no part of this mess!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 31, 2019
However, even as he raised the possibility of a Republican running mate while speaking to a crowd at a campaign event in Exeter, New Hampshire, Biden said, “But I can’t think of one right now.”
Biden has premised much of his presidential bid on appealing to moderate Democrats, independents and Republicans who have been alienated by President Donald Trump. On the campaign trail, Biden has regularly spoken about the need to work with Republicans in Congress should he prevail in the November 2020 general election.
In response to a question by an attendee at the event, Biden elaborated on his answer, contending that Trump’s party has not done enough to hold the president accountable. “There are some really decent Republicans that are out there still, but here’s the problem right now,” he said. “They’ve got to step up.”
Biden, 77, who served two terms as vice president to former President Barack Obama and spent 35 years in Congress, has been criticized by progressive Democrats who say he is out of touch with the party’s leftward drift and is not interested in reforming the U.S. political system.
Biden has previously said he would like to name a woman and/or a person of color as his running mate if he is the nominee.
National opinion polls continue to show Biden the favored choice among Democratic voters ahead of his more liberal rivals, U.S. Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Biden’s chief argument for his candidacy is that he is best positioned to beat Trump next year because he can appeal to centrist voters in key battleground states.
Past presidential nominees have flirted with the idea of crossing party lines. In 2008, the Republican pick, the late U.S. Senator John McCain, wanted his close friend U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman, a Democrat-turned-independent, on the ticket. But pressure within the party pushed McCain to make former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin his vice-presidential choice, a move that backfired and helped Obama win election.”
We all know that “Slow” Joe Biden is just kidding.
He would never in a million years choose a Republican to run as his Vice President.
Can you imagine the outrage that would come from the leftists who run and control the Democratic Party?
Bernie and Ocasio-Cortez would have a meltdown.
President Donald Trump blamed Iran on Tuesday for “orchestrating” an attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad and said he would hold Tehran responsible, as officials said more Marines were expected to be sent to the mission.
“Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many. We strongly responded, and always will. Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible. In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so notified,” Trump said on Twitter.
The Iranian backed militia outside of the US Embassy in Baghdad are now chanting:
“Allahu Akbar, America is the biggest Satan.”

“To those many millions of people in Iraq who want freedom and who don’t want to be dominated and controlled by Iran, this is your time!,” Trump wrote in another Twitter post.
U.S. officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters that a small number of additional Marines were expected to go to the U.S. embassy in Baghdad.
One official said they were expected to number in the dozens and would be there temporarily.
Another official said two Apache helicopters carried out a “show of force” over the embassy.
The U.S. State Department and White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on whether the American ambassador and other staff had been evacuated from the embassy compound in the Iraqi capital.
Iraqi officials said the ambassador and other staff were evacuated from the embassy for their safety on Tuesday, as thousands of protesters and militia fighters thronged the gates in fury at U.S. air strikes in Iraq.

On Monday, State Department officials said Washington had exhibited restraint and patience in the face of escalating provocations from Iran or Iranian-backed groups, but that it was time to re-establish deterrence against Iranian aggression.
“We had very much hoped that Iran would not miscalculate and confuse our restraint for weakness. But after so many attacks it was important for the president to direct our armed forces to respond in a way that the Iranian regime will understand,” Brian Hook, the U.S. special representative for Iran, told reporters.

Just when you think the liberals in this world cannot do anything to shock you anymore there comes a story so outrageous you cannot believe it is real.
Such a case happened last week when The Daily Mirror shared a story with the headline “Transgender man gives birth to non-binary partner’s baby with female sperm donor.”
If that headline makes no sense to you, you are not alone. It took me about a half hour to figure out that hodgepodge of nonsense word jumble.
But here it is. Woman, masquerading as a man, give’s birth to whatever her partner is, baby. The sperm was provided by a man pretending to be a woman.
We could argue that being transgender is a mental disorder, as this writer believes it is, but this couple has taken it far beyond that.
To go out of your way to find a transgender man, or woman, I’m not certain what he would be called, to provide the sperm to bring a baby into your already confused life goes above and beyond.
They have ensured that the baby’s genes will be chock full of whatever mental disorder these people have in an attempt to be “woke.”
Make no mistake, if it was just a baby they wanted they could have gone to a sperm bank, got pregnant and quietly had their baby.
But what they did was to deliberately make a spectacle of themselves and the birth of their child, not to make a baby but to make a statement.

They even went so far as to find a transgender doctor to facilitate the birth of this baby, who should have a GoFundMe started immediately for the inevitable counselling it is going to need.
A decade ago, saying that these people have mental issues would not have been controversial. You would have to have your head so far in the sand that you cannot see daylight to not see the serious mental issues present here.
This couple is not just living an alternate lifestyle, they are living in an alternate universe where nothing makes any sense.
And if you think that people should not have the right to criticize them consider this. None of us went searching for this family.
They sought the spotlight, shoved their lifestyle choices in everyone’s face and have invited whatever response they get.
“It’s taken six years to get this far, but now we have a baby in our arms and that was the end goal. I finally feel complete,” Reuben Sharpe said.
“It wasn’t that I was desperate to have the birthing experience or pregnancy experience, but I wanted a child and I had the facility to do it,” she, he, I’m not certain, said.
Yes, you have “the facility to do it” because you are a biological woman. As a biological man I do not have “the facility to do it.” Do you see the basic science in that “Reuben?”
“It’s taken six years to get this far, but now we have a baby in our arms and that was the end goal. I finally feel complete,” Reuben said.
Sadly, Reuben this will wear off. You will likely never feel complete, or pleased with yourself, until you get the counselling, I believe you desperately need.
No one is doing this couple or this baby any favors by pretending that any of this is normal and / or healthy for anyone involved.
Naturally, this is just my opinion. I could be 100 percent incorrect; everything could be fine, and 100 scientists could come an disagree with me.
But I sadly see nothing but issues for everyone involved in this Frankenstein effort, though I pray that is not the case.
Criminals are beginning to run the state of New York and it is the progressive liberal government that is helping them do it.
As part of the law that is allowing so called “nonviolent” criminals to be let out of jail with no bail, there are other dangerous perks given to New York’s criminals, Breitbart reported.
New York’s bail reforms, set to go into effect January 2020, will ensure that suspects accused of crimes deemed “non-violent” are not jailed before their trial dates and do not have to post bail. Instead, these suspects are released directly back into the public and expected to show up for their court dates. Roughly 125,000 accused criminals are expected to be released from prison every year in the state.
Those so-called non-violent crimes include second-degree manslaughter, aggravated vehicular assault, promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child, possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child, criminally negligent homicide, and aggravated vehicular homicide.
In the past week two people accused of committing antisemitic attacks, and a vagrant who punched a police officer on camera, were let out of jail with no bail.
If that is not bad enough, it gets worse. These criminals are going to be allowed to inspect their own crime scenes as part of the measure.
And they will be given a list of the witnesses against them in their cases. That is mind numbing to the extreme.
Imagine a gangbanger being given a list of witnesses against them. Would you give your name to the police as witness knowing the perpetrator is going to get it?
“It really boggles the mind that this is a reality for us now,” Warren County Sheriff’s Lt. Steven Stockdale said. “Talk about re-victimization.”

“And if you go to court, you’ll hear that the judges are very anguished about this,” Bridget Brennan, a Special Narcotics Prosecutor, said.
“They’re very concerned the defendants not only will not return to court—but that the defendants pose a public safety risk.”
As an example, say a criminal breaks into your home and robs it. They are allowed to come back with their attorneys and inspect the scene.
Seth Barron and Ralf Mangual of the Manhattan Institute said that these provisions will make it impossible to protect witnesses, Breitbart reported.
Prosecutors will no longer be able to assure witnesses that their identity will be protected, even in the case of grand jury testimony, which the new law will now require be disclosed. (While there’s a provision to ask a judge for a protective order to shield a name, that would come after cops and prosecutors talk to witnesses to make an arrest and build a case.) [Emphasis added]
Manhattan DA Cy Vance put it this way: “Having to hand defendants a roster of who has spoken out against them just 15 days after their first appearance, absent a protective order, is a seismic change that undoubtedly will dissuade witnesses who live in all neighborhoods from reporting crime.” [Emphasis added]
New York is heading back to the city it was in the 1970s and 1980s. A waste land riddled with crime that the state does not do anything about.
