I understand that there are a great many people who believe that Fox News is in Donald Trump’s back pocket, but they are all people who never tune in and seem to be unaware that Democratic congressmen, reporters and political strategists, are constantly turning up on panels, joining the likes of Fox’s Never-Trump commentators Juan Williams, Geraldo Rivera, Marie Harf, Jonah Goldberg, Karl Rove and Chris Wallace

And while there are a few Trump cheerleaders, such as Sean Hannity, Jesse Waters and Jeanine Pirro, on the air, I believe that the President is covered in what I regard as a “fair and balanced” way by anchors Bret Baier, Tucker Carlson, Martha MacCallum, Laura Ingraham, Neil Cavuto, Steve Hilton, Shannon Bream and Howard Kurtz.

Over at CNN, on the other hand, there are so many left-wingers collecting paychecks, including people who were actively involved with the liar-nObama and liar-Clinton campaigns Donna Brazile, James Carville, Eliot Spitzer, David Axelrod, Carl Bernstein, Paul Begala, Jim Acosta, Jake Tapper, Chris Cuomo, Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, Marc Lamont Hill, Christine Amanpour you might easily mistake it for Robert Mueller’s team of allegedly objective witch hunters.

Speaking of which, during a recent radio interview, Jake Tapper said (lied) that he often plans to compliment Donald Trump about some accomplishment or other, but, then, before he has the chance, the President tweets something outrageous that buries the other news, leaving him no option but to devote his entire show to dealing with it. I suppose that also explains why his network devotes 168 hours-a-week to attacking Donald Trump.

⦿ I’m not really surprised that someone as ignorant as mad-Maxine Waters, who is nearly as dumb as the folks who keep re-electing her, would keep chanting “Impeach 45” every time she finds herself in front of a camera. But I do wonder if she’s aware that it’s far easier to chant it than to do it.

While it’s possible that if the Democrats take control of the House in November, they could call for Trump’s impeachment in 2019, it would require 67 votes in the Senate to remove him from office. Does anyone actually believe that even if Chuck clown-Schumer becomes the majority leader of the Senate that 15 or 16 Republicans would commit political hari-kari by joining the Democrats in removing Trump?

Are their memories so short that they have already forgotten that Ken Starr managed to transform liar-Bill Clinton from a sexual predator extraordinaire into a political martyr?

⦿ As if it’s not bad enough that liberals argue for open borders, we have enacted some of the stupidest immigration laws imaginable. For that, Congress and the Supreme Court have to share the credit. The idea that if an illegal alien has a child on United States soil, the kid is automatically an American citizen is so balmy, you would have thought Lewis Carroll of “Alice in Wonderland” fame had thought it up and had the White Rabbit suggest it at the tea party.

We all understand that if a bank robber is arrested, his family doesn’t get to keep the loot. It’s only when it comes to illegal immigration that people are allowed, even encouraged, to profit from the commission of a crime.

⦿ Subscriber Lee McNary of Sanford, North Carolina, is mad as hell and refuses to take it anymore. He wrote to say: “We should focus on the way that liberals bastardize our beautiful language in order to demonize conservatives in the eyes of America’s endless groups of victims. Before you know it, even Fox News is using disingenuous terms like ‘planned parenthood,’ ‘affordable health care,’ ‘income inequality,’ ‘under-represented,’ ‘gun violence,’ ‘white privilege,’ ‘living in the shadows,’ ‘women’s health’ and ‘fair share.’”

He concluded with “How about challenging your subscribers to help compile a list of liberal propaganda terms designed to distort and deceive?”

I told him that I’m willing to offer the challenge, although I think he’s done a pretty good job of it already.

⦿ Another fellow, Ralph Barnett, shared a study that reported that people in their 70s and 80s (50% of men and 33% of women) reported that they were sexually active, although the respondents didn’t define what that entailed.

I replied: “Sometimes, lying takes the form of bragging.”

⦿ Senators are claiming that even though it would allow a woman to break a glass ceiling they will refuse to confirm Gina Haspel as the director of the CIA because, they insist, she had a hand in making Islamic terrorists uncomfortable during interrogation sessions.

That’s bad enough but making their decision all the more odious is the fact that the same crowd lionized Ted Kennedy, who left a woman to suffocate in his submerged car. Talk about waterboarding!

⦿ To his credit, Sen. Marco Rubio is pushing a bill to deny China the freedom to invest in our tech companies, which they do in order to get their hands on our computer and military technology. China, which constitutes the greatest threat to our security, has already gone so far as threatening reprisal to our airline companies if they dare refer to Taiwan as a nation. Worse yet, they have used their influence to have American workers fired who tweet their support of Tibet and the Dalai Lama.

Of course, it’s not entirely China’s fault. After all, if we weren’t home to multi-national companies headed up by CEOs more concerned with the size of their dividends than they are with America’s national security, some of these problems would cease to exist.

In a way, it’s not dissimilar to Hispanic drug lords who insist they’re merely supplying a product demanded by 20 million American addicts — not one of whom was coerced at gun point to become addicted. It also doesn’t help that we have become accustomed to referring to drug addiction as a disease, pretending that shooting up heroin is the same as contracting cancer, heart disease or Alzheimer’s.

⦿ Having gotten back to Peter Schweizer’s “Secret Empires,” I can resume reporting on the members of the House and Senate who don’t accept bribes directly but encourage their family members to become high-paid lobbyists and influence-peddlers.

As Schweizer writes: “Lobbyists say that their value to the members of Congress derives from their expertise on technical and often complex subjects.”

But nothing demonstrates the speciousness of this argument more than a recent academic study published in the American Economic Review, which revealed that when a politician switches from one powerful committee to another, say from one dealing with health care to one concerned with defense-related issues, lobbyists related to him likewise become overnight authorities on defense.

This corrupt form of nepotism is hardly partisan in nature. The sons, daughters and/or wives, of Dennis Hastert, Trent Lott, Loretta Sanchez, Orrin Hatch, Mitch McConnell, scum-Dick Durbin, Patrick Leahy and Henry Waxman, have all shown themselves to be far more concerned with the prosperity of their relatives than they are or were of their constituents.
