Hello everyone. My name is Rita Phillips and this is Be the Light Daily. I hope this new year brings you the peace, love, and joy of our Lord. All right let’s get into it. As I was thinking about our new topsy turvy world, I realized this was going to require more than one podcast to fully cover the subject. So for the next several podcasts we’re going to explore the insane universe Democrats have created, and unfortunately, the one we must live in.
The Emperors New Clothes
Recently my adult son was lamenting our current state of affairs, and he actually used the words “upside down” world. It’s a valid description, but a childhood fairy tale also comes to mind. Here’s a summary from Wikipedia: The Emperor’s New Clothes” is a short tale written by Hans Christian Andersen. It tells about two weavers who promise an emperor a new suit of clothes. They tell the emperor that the new suit is invisible to those who are unfit for their positions, stupid, or incompetent. But, in reality, the sly weavers make no clothes at all. Then, they convince everyone that the emperor’s new clothes are beautiful, but invisible to them. When the emperor parades before his subjects in his new “clothes,” no one dares to say that they do not see the magnificent suit of clothes on him because they fear they will be seen as stupid. Finally a child cries out, “But he isn’t wearing anything at all!
Today when we speak about “The Emperor’s New Clothes” we are referring to a person or group of people who are pretending that a lie is the truth. I know your mind is running wild right now. You’re thinking of all those things we are constantly being told are true, but which we know are false. We are like the child in the story I just told you about who saw reality and then spoke the truth. We see it all, folks. Everything the left keeps telling us is real, is a hoax. Everything the media insists is real, is a sham. Everything Hollywood amplifies as real, is a fraud.
And, friends, these elitists are so frustrated that only half of America believe their fairy tales, that their lies keep getting more and more incredulous. Let’s address one of the most audacious hoaxes perpetrated on the American people–the left’s schemes to remove Donald Trump as President of the United States, otherwise known as the silent coup.
The left’s 1st scheme to remove President Trump from office
Of course, you’ll recall that this all began when Hillary Clinton paid Fusion GPS to find dirt on her opponent, Donald J. Trump. Next, Fusion GPS turned around and hired former British MI6 agent, Christopher Steele, to get the job done. Then Steel, for his part, worked with a former Russian spy chief, Vyacheslav Trubnikov, and a top Kremlin adviser, Vladislav Surkov to find compromising information on the Republican candidate to smear him before the election.
So, the fairy tale has been told by Democrats and echoed by the mainstream media that Trump colluded with Russia to win the presidency in 2016. But, now we know the reality is it was Hillary Clinton who actually colluded with the Russians to try to win the election by paying a British agent to get dirt on Trump. You’re naked, Hillary. You have no clothes!
The 25th Amendment strategy
Let’s continue with another tactic used to attempt the removal of the President of the United States, the 25th amendment. Now keep in mind that it seems that every Republican has been called unfit for the office. Take for example how the media called President Reagan senile, doddering and unfit for office. Then consider Republican candidate Barry Goldwater, whom the Democrats and media called unfit for the highest office in the land. Finally, contemplate how the media and Democrats made fun of George W. Bush, calling him a cowboy who wasn’t very bright and not well read. This is a familiar tactic from leftists.
Now, back to Donald Trump. Let’s listen to a little montage of those claiming President Trump is not fit for office.
What was Trump’s response to the onslaught of celebrities, pundits, Never-Trumpers, and Democrats weighing in on his fitness? To begin with, he voluntarily took the Montreal Cognitive Assessment mental test and got 30 out of 30 on the test. Dr. Ronny Johnson, his physician, said, “It has been my experience that the president is very sharp and he’s very articulate when he speaks to me.” Then, unfortunately, he took questions from rabid reporters, and here’s how that sounded.
Don’t those reporters sound crazed? They want to find any excuse to remove this president. President Trump for his part, described his mental state this way.
Yes, Trump is a very stable genius, as is being proven by his big wins for the United States and his ability to continue working despite the savage attacks by the Democrats, the media, and Hollywood.
Who’s Really unfit for the office of the presidency?
What is truly ironic, however, is the velvet glove treatment of a man who clearly has mental problems. In fact, establishment Democrats and many in the media would like to see this man elevated to the presidency. Of course I’m speaking about Joseph Robinet Biden. Let’s listen to a few examples from a man who is clearly unfit for the office of the presidency because of his declining mental acuity.
Let’s begin with Biden fondly recalling his time as a lifeguard at a public pool in an African American neighborhood.
Yikes! This is truly disturbing. Here is a man who has already been called out publicly for touching, nuzzling, and sniffing young girls’ hair, yet he tells a story of children rubbing his legs to see his leg hair rise and explains how he loves children jumping on his lap. Whew! Mental impairment anyone?
Well, continuing with the lifeguard theme, here is the former vice president recalling a time he had to get tough at the pool.
Corn Pop? Really? Knowing Biden he probably meant Popcorn, but messed it up and just went with it. But seriously, does anyone really believe this tale? What was the purpose in telling it? To make himself sound tough? I thought he did that when he called an elderly man who attended one of his small rallies a liar and challenged him to a pushup contest. Can you say psychologically unstable?
Alright, here’s a final soundbite which is from a recent debate when the former vice president was asked a question about race relations.
Is anyone else out there embarrassed for this man? You’d think his family would take him aside and dissuade him from pursuing the nomination. I can sum up the situation in four words. Unfit. To. Be. President.
The stable genius in the oval office has many accomplishments
So the deception being foisted upon us like another fairy tale is that Trump is unfit for office. The reality is something quite different. The stable genius who sits in the Oval Office has been busy keeping promises despite the savage attacks by the media, the democrats, and Hollywood. Among his accomplishments in three years at the helm are the following.
- Almost 4 million jobs created since the 2016 election
- More Americans employed than at any time in our history
- More than 400,000 manufacturing jobs created since election day
- Economic growth last quarter hit 4.2%
- Unemployment claims have hit a 49 year low
- Median household income has hit its highest level ever recorded
- 3.9 million Americans have been lifted off food stamps
- African American unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded
- Obamacare’s individual mandate penalty is gone.
- He’s increased coal exports by 60%
- US oil production reached an all time high
- The US is a net natural gas exporter for the first time since 1957
- He signed the USMCA to replace NAFTA which will bring back jobs rather than outsource them
- He’s confirmed more circuit judges than any other new administration
- He’s confirmed two conservative justices to the Supreme Court
- He’s moved the US embassy to Jerusalem
- The Mexicans are now stopping caravans of migrants from Central America at their southern border. In fact Mexico just deported over 2000 Hondurans
- AND…many, many more accomplishments.
These monumental accomplishments are reality, not a fairy tale. And, the reality also includes the fact that the man at the top of the Democrat nomination process right now–Joe Biden–is severely unfit for office. I’d like to see Biden take the Montreal Cognitive Assessment mental test. I’d be curious to see how he measures up to Trump’s perfect score. We can see you Joe, and you’re naked!
The so-called ukrainian Quid Pro Quo
Okay, as long as we’re talking about Joe Biden, let’s talk about another fairy tale perpetrated by the lefties in Congress, the so-called Ukrainian quid pro quo phone call which has led to a fantasy impeachment by the Democrats. Part of the delusional crime, as relayed by Adam Schiff, is that President Trump asked the Ukranian president, Volodymyr Zelensky to dig up dirt on his opponent, Joe Biden. Then,we’re told, if Zelensky and his prosecutor could find the dirt, Trump would provide Ukraine with much needed funds for their defense.
According to the Democrats, this is illegal and is an abuse of power. Never mind that the US and Ukraine have an agreement signed by President Bill Clinton in 1999 called The TREATY WITH UKRAINE ON MUTUAL LEGAL ASSISTANCE IN CRIMINAL MATTERS. In it, both sides agreed that major forms of assistance would include “taking the testimony or statements of persons; providing documents, records and other items of evidence; locating or identifying persons or items; serving documents; transferring persons in custody for testimony or other purposes; executing requests for searches and seizures; assisting in proceedings related to immobilization and forfeiture of assets, restitution, and collection of fines; and, rendering any other form of assistance not prohibited by the laws of the Requested State. The scope of the Treaty includes not only criminal offenses, but also proceedings related to criminal matters, which may be civil or administrative in nature.”
I think that’s pretty clear, don’t you? The president had the responsibility to ask Ukraine to investigate two things: the possible corruption of Joe and Hunter Biden, and what part Ukraine operatives may have played in attempting to disrupt the 2016 presidential election. Shouldn’t we want to know any part Ukraine played in the 2016 American election? And, shouldn’t we want to know if an American politician has been involved in corruption whether in the US or abroad? If you’re honest, I think you’ll agree we all would want to know if Ukraine had any part in trying to affect the 2016 presidential election. And, if an American politician is suspected of corruption, just suspected, EVERYONE wants the details. You have to ask yourself, why not now?
So, what about the charge of quid, pro quo by the Democrats? Interestingly, the term quid pro quo simply means, “You scratch my back, and I’ll scratch yours.” Nothing would ever get done anywhere without quid pro quo. Politics is a quid pro quo game. But never mind that. The Democrats were intent from the moment Trump announced his candidacy to prevent him from ascending to the presidency, or if he were to be elected, they would find a way to remove him one way or another.
the left has been trying to oust trump since inauguration
Recall that Mark Zaid, one of the attorneys representing the so-called whistleblower, said in January 2017 soon after Trump was inaugurated, “The coup has started. Impeachment will follow ultimately. We will get rid of him…”
Next, take a listen to the biggest cheerleader of impeachment, Maxine Waters, who had this to say in April 2017, just three and a half months after inauguration.
And, folks, Waters has continued to cheerlead for impeachment ever since. Besides her corruption, for which she is being investigated (I addressed this in my last podcast entitled “Rule by Idiocracy, Impeachment, & Why Trump Will Win 4 More Years”), her sheer idiocy, her call for violence against Trump supporters, and her constant cheerleading for impeachment makes HER unfit for her office. She has done nothing for the voters except to stoke division in this country and enrich herself. Someone needs to run against this loudmouth, no-nothing. California needs better representation!
dems know they can’t beat trump at the ballot box
So, although there are so many other examples of Democrats calling for Trump’s impeachment for the last three years, Representative Al Green let the cat out of the bag when he explained the real reason Dems want to impeach the President.
And, Adam Schiff basically said the same thing in the Senate portion of the impeachment trial.
That’s right, friends. We knew it all along, but it’s nice to get confirmation straight out of the horse’s mouth. The Democrats know they cannot beat President Trump in the next election, you know, the right way to oust a president. That’s why they want to impeach him and remove him now.
Who’s really abusing their power?
The fairy tale is that Donald Trump must be removed from office for abuse of power and election interference in asking Ukraine to investigate the Bidens. But in reality it’s not Trump who is abusing his power or interfering in the next election; it’s the Democrats. They abused their power in the House when they foisted this so-called impeachment debacle on the country. Nancy Pelosi abused her power by calling an impeachment inquiry without a House vote and holding up the impeachment articles for a month. And, Democrats are trying to interfere in the upcoming presidential election by attempting to remove a duly elected president from office on a flimsy excuse only nine months from the November election.
Now, recall initially the Democrats tried to impeach the President for a quid pro quo. According to them, Trump tried to pressure the Ukrainian President, Zelensky, to investigate Hunter and Joe Biden in exchange for military aid. As we’ve already discussed, President Trump had a duty to investigate corruption for two reasons. The first reason was because he was obligated to do so under THE TREATY WITH UKRAINE ON MUTUAL LEGAL ASSISTANCE IN CRIMINAL MATTERS signed in 1999 by Bill Clinton. The second reason he had a duty to investigate corruption in Ukraine is because he wanted to make sure that taxpayer money being sent to the country would be used wisely. All of this is reality.
quid pro joe
Not so with Joe Biden. Remember when Biden said this at the Council of Foreign Affairs.
Now that was a quid pro quo! In fact, that’s exactly what the Democrats have been accusing Trump of doing. The only difference is that in Trump’s case, there is no evidence he did that, just supposition, assumptions, beliefs, and guesses by unelected bureaucrats. On the other hand, with Biden we have video evidence of his quid pro quo. And, worse, Biden had the prosecutor fired who was investigating his son for corruption. That was the quid. You fire the prosecutor and in exchange, the US will release the financial aid you desperately need–the quo. There is no dispute here.
The fairy tale is Trump engaged in a quid pro quo to benefit himself by finding dirt on his possible 2020 election opponent. The reality is that it was Joe Biden, acting as Vice-President, that engaged in a quid pro quo to benefit himself and his son and to hide their corruption. Joe, where’s your clothing? We see you clearly.
trump’s magnificent foreign policy
Well, this is a good time to discuss foreign affairs. Leftists, Never Trumpers, the mainstream media, globalists, and Neocons are all highly critical of Trump’s foreign policy. Let’s just make this simple. Establishment Democrats and Republicans as well as the others I just mentioned are always eager to engage in war. Then we end up in these protracted wars, with little benefit to Americans at a high cost monetarily and in loss of life and limb. Trump ran in 2016 as a candidate who would get us out of these never-ending wars. And, he’s keeping his promise.
Trump, like Reagan before him, believes in peace through strength. He also believes in keeping his enemies guessing. He has taken a strong stand with Kim Jong Un in North Korea, and with the Mullahs in Iran. I, like other patriots, cheered when the President had Qasem Soleimani killed with a precision strike. To hear the media tell it, the President was leading us into World War III. But, an escalation never materialized because Iran got the message. This president is not like others who preceded him in office recently. He let Iran know that he is not afraid to use extreme force to deal with their bad behavior.
contrasting trump & obama
So, the fairy tale is that Trump doesn’t know what he’s doing with foreign policy. However, the reality is that Trump is fully aware of how to deal with strongmen, and he definitely is the master of dealmaking, which infuriates the left. But, contrast that with Obama. When Ukraine asked for help by way of weapons to deal with Russia’s aggression, Obama sent them night vision goggles and blankets. This prompted former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to comment, “One cannot win a war with blankets!” As a result of Obama’s rejection of military aid to Ukraine, Russia invaded and annexed Crimea, a region of Ukraine. It was Trump in 2017 that sent Ukraine javelin anti-tank missiles so they could fend off further Russian aggression. Of course hardly any Americans know this because the media doesn’t inform the public anymore. They just promote the Democrat viewpoint.
And, was Obama a master deal maker? As the Brits would say, not bloody likely. Rather than dealing with the Iranians through strength like Trump, he instead chose to bribe them. In the dead of night, Obama had an initial $400 million euros, Swiss francs and other foreign currency delivered on pallets. Later, another 1.3 billion dollars was delivered to Iran as well. If a president engages in bribery, isn’t that impeachable? Just asking. Hey Obama, grab some clothing. Everyone knows you’re exposed.
a sham impeachment
Finally, let’s briefly examine the impeachment process. First of all, the entire process in the House of Representative was unfair. From all the news I’ve examined, I think we can infer that this whole impeachment charade began in July of 2019 with about 20 individuals on the call to Ukraine with President Trump; among them was Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman. Vindman was close with Never Trumper, former CIA officer Eric Chiaramella. It appears Vindman leaked the phone call to Chiaramella who darted over to Representative Adam Schiff’s office for direction. Schiff’s office helped Chiaramella write his whistleblower report. Keep in mind that whistleblowers must have first hand information, not second hand as was the case here. But, not to worry, the inspector general for US intelligence agencies, Michael Atkinson, changed the whistleblower report form in September–and then backdated it to August–allowing second hand information to be reported.
Next, Adam Schiff, leader of the impeachment inquiry conducted a kangaroo court in secret for much of the proceedings. During those 78 days of a sham impeachment inquiry, the President’s lawyers were not allowed to sit in for 71 days, the whistleblower was not allowed to testify, and Republicans were not allowed to ask certain questions. In addition, the process was rushed. When the White House rejected House subpoenas for witnesses based on executive privilege, Adam Schiff and his colleagues refused to go to court to push the issue because they wanted to be done with their portion of impeachment before Christmas. And, the charges kept changing from quid pro quo to bribery to extortion.
Finally the Democrats landed on two impeachment articles–the nebulous abuse of power, and the non-crime of obstruction of Congress. Then, Speaker Pelosi held the articles for nearly one month in a quid pro quo ploy to get Leader McConnell to agree for witnesses to be called in the Senate before she’d hand over the articles, which by the way, McConnell mused he never wanted.
The fairy tale is that the Democrats are serious and the impeachment process in the House was fair. Obviously, the reality is the exact opposite. Everyone sees you Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi. Your schemes are painfully transparent.
the boy who cried wolf
Let’s end by invoking another fairy tale, “The Boy Who Cried Wolf.” Here’s a summary from Answers.com: A boy got bored watching sheep, and wanted excitement. So he cried “Wolf!” The villagers came running, got mad at the boy because it was a prank, and left. The next day the boy did the same thing. The villagers got really mad at the boy, because it was a trick. The next day, a wolf came and attacked the sheep. The boy cried, “Wolf!” but the villagers didn’t believe him, and no one came to help. The wolf gobbled up all the sheep and the little boy.
The moral of the story is, of course, lying is wrong and can result in tragic outcomes. Another moral we can infer is that it’s important to not continually go back to the same audience with another version of the same lie. No one will believe you if you do this. But, that’s the Democrat plan if this impeachment results in an acquittal for the President. Listen to Maxine Waters explain.
the democrats are self-destructing before our very eyes
That’s right, friends, Waters plans to keep going back with more lies to try to impeach the President. What’s laughable is that this Congresswoman claims to be doing the people’s work. We’ve had two attempts thus far of crying wolf by the Dems–the Mueller investigation and the impeachment exercise on the Ukraine call. It looks as though, like the little boy who cried wolf, the Democrats are going to be destroyed by their lies.
I predict that Republicans will win the House back in November, that Trump will win over substantial amounts of minorities who love the economy and the President’s stance on abortion, and that Trump will win in a monumental landslide the likes of which we haven’t seen since Ronald Reagan slaughtered Walter Mondale at the ballot box in 1984. When do you think the Democrats will finally begin asking themselves questions about why Trump is constantly winning and they’re losing? I’m not holding my breath, but let’s hope that all voters see what will happen if the democrats retain their stranglehold on the House. We must take back the House in November!
Let’s wrap this up with prayer.
Heavenly Father, you are so good to us. We thank you and praise you for all your blessings. We lift up President Trump, Lord, and ask that you give him strength, courage, and wisdom. Help him to continue fighting for us. We further ask that true justice wins in this concocted impeachment battle and that those on the left who have dragged the country through three years of misery with their constant attacks on the President and his supporters get their comeuppance. Lord, we know you are the author of truth as you tell us in your Word, “I am the way, the truth, and the light…” We further acknowledge that you abhor slander and lying. In Scripture, your word commands, “You shall not spread a false report. You shall not join hands with a wicked man to be a malicious witness.” Please open the eyes and hearts of those who would peddle false narratives and slander to gain power. Help us all to embrace the message in your word which says, “Send out your light and your truth; let them lead us; let them bring us to your holy hill and to your dwelling.” In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
