It Only Takes One

This week’s show opens with Ed’s thoughts on the allegations against actor Kevin Spacey. Not defending Spacey, Harvey Weinstein or anyone else who has been accused of sexual assault, Ed says it would have been much better if one person had spoken up years ago. “If one person jumps in, and another stands next to them, and another stands next to them…that’s a movement.” He likens it to other current events:

“President Obama decides to trade five Taliban and a trunk full of cash for Bowe Bergdahl who deserted his post and went to live with the Taliban, this week he gets off with a dishonorable discharge, and everybody involved with that got away with it. Why isn’t someone standing up? Why is it okay that Lois Lerner and the IRS misused their power against conservatives to take away their tax-exempt status? Why is it okay that Hillary Clinton has gotten away with all this stuff we’ve been talking about for weeks (Uranium One)? If something like that (sexual harassment) is going on in your life, stand up.”

Another Terror Attack – Thanks, Diversity Visa Lottery!

On Tuesday, eight people were killed in lower Manhattan when 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov mowed them down with a pickup truck he rented from a Home Depot in New Jersey. “Democrats are calling for the banning of Home Depot rental trucks, because they kill people all by themselves,” Ed says. On his 2013 marriage license, the Uzbekistan-born Saipov’s occupation is listed as “truck driver” and he drove for Uber in New Jersey. “The company says he passed their background check,” Ed says. “Don’t you feel good about taking an Uber now?”

In regards to the Diversity Lottery Program visa, Saipov’s “golden ticket” into the United States, President Trump is ready to end the program immediately. Did you know that this program enabled a chain migration effect for Saipov, leading to him bring another 23 people into the country with him? After President Trump said that this week, ABC News contacted a government official source who confirmed it – and, it was confirmed that two of those people were being monitored for terrorist activity. “The only vetting they got was ‘they’re friends,’ just like when Sayeed Farook’s wife was able to come in on the fiancé visa,” Ed says. “And 14 people in San Bernardino ended up dead.”

What Really Happened in Las Vegas? It’s Time to Tell the Truth

“Now would be a good time for them to start giving us more information,” Ed says, “because just this week, three survivors of the Las Vegas terror attack have unexpectedly died.” Survivor Kymberley Suchomel of Apple Valley, California raised serious questions about what really happened on her (now private) Facebook page, stating that she wanted to organize a reunion of other truth-seeking survivors – and the 28-year-old woman died five days later. But Suchomel isn’t the only Vegas shooting survivor to die mysteriously – in fact, she isn’t even the only one to die this week. Dennis and Lorraine Carver of Murrieta, driving out of their La Cresta community, died when their Mercedes crashed into a gate and burst into flames. “I don’t know what happened, but if it walks like a duck…” Ed says. “Kymberley tried to stand up, and someone didn’t want her to. Maybe it was the same for this couple.”

Mueller Indicts Manafort, Donna Brazille (Kind of) Stands Up

This week, Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted two former members of the Trump campaign, Paul Manafort and Rick Gates. The men were charged with money laundering and making false statements; they remain on house arrest. Here’s the problem: These charges pertain to things they did in their consulting business prior to 2015. None of the charges have anything do with Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election, which is what Mueller is supposed to be investigating.

However, indicting Manafort and Gates may also be Mueller’s way of pressuring them to talk about their dealings with this guy: George Papadopoulos, who’s 30 years old and was a volunteer for the campaign (not a “senior advisor” like CNN wants you to believe). Here’s what happened with Papadopoulos. This is all according to court documents:

So that’s the real reason Manafort and Gates were indicted this week – not because of money laundering in their business, but because Mueller wants them to tell him if there was ever any contact between the campaign and these Russians. They can thank this kid George Papadopoulos for that. “I think this is a smokescreen to keep our eyes of Hillary Clinton,” Ed says, “and in Donna Brazille’s new book, she just admitted the DNC was in the tank for Hillary and she didn’t like it but didn’t want to ‘kill the patient’ – she didn’t want to stand up and say anything about it.”

The Tax Reform Ball is Rolling

In keeping with their goal to get the Tax Cut and Jobs Act to the President’s desk before Thanksgiving, House Republicans unveiled their tax reform package on Thursday. Remember, this is still a framework and it can’t go to the President’s desk until it passes the Senate – but as of this week, this is how the House bill looks:
