In recent history, the only American president who has garnered anything resembling the bad press that Donald Trump consistently received was Jimmy Carter in the latter stages of his presidency. Probably not coincidentally, Carter and Trump were both ushered out of the Oval Office after one term. In the 24 years since George H.W. Bush was top dog for one term, we had three presidents in Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama who were smiled upon by the press. Their gentle press treatment was exemplified by the conduct of their press conferences. Clinton was the best actor of the three, making it appear that he had chosen the reporter he was calling on spontaneously. Bush wasn’t nearly as good as faking it, betraying the lack of spontaneity by looking down at his list before calling a reporter’s name. Obama simply dropped all pretense in the matter, making no effort to conceal the fact that he was choosing the person to be called upon from a list from which he was reading, which indicates pretty strongly that he knew in advance what the question would be, and everything had been planned in advance.
What this symbiotic relationship between these two-term presidents and the press tells us is that they were smiled upon by what has in recent years come to be called the Deep State. Before this run of two-term presidents we had the one-term George H.W. Bush, who was about as Deep State as it gets, but his departure from office had an almost voluntary feel about it, like the passing of the reins of the company over to a younger partner for expedient reasons.

Unfortunately, it is impeachment week and the political theater has begun.
Today on Sekulow, we discussed the impending impeachment trial of President Donald Trump which begins tomorrow and that we are delivering the ACLJ’s legal analysis on the unconstitutionality of the trial to the Senate today.
Trump has won two-thirds of the cases that have been adjudicated by the courts.

Of late, I’ve felt more and more like I am back in Communist China. A place where every day, no matter what channel you turn on, what radio broadcast you listen to, or what online news service you subscribe to (except LifeSiteNews and a couple of others), the same dreary party line spews out.
The Senate on Tuesday derailed an effort by Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul to force the chamber to vote on the constitutionality of holding an impeachment trial for former President Trump. But the 55-45 vote tally that stopped the effort was a clear indicator that Senate Republicans support Paul’s constitutional argument and won’t supply enough votes for chamber Democrats to convict Trump.
The move made good on the libertarian-minded Paul’s promise earlier in the day to force such a vote — and perhaps end the trial before it starts next month.
The five Republicans senators who joined Democrats were Susan Collins, of Maine; Lisa Murkowski, of Alaska; Mitt Romney, of Utah; Ben Sasse, of Nebraska; and Pat Toomey, of Pennsylvania.
With no less than 5,000 National Guard troops occupying Washington DC until at least March, on Monday former Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard asked President Select Joe Biden point blank: “Have You Declared Martial Law? … Let our troops back home to their families.”
Joe Biden’s cognitive decline is no laughing matter. An expert claims he is half way gone.
We saw earlier this year how Joe Biden had no idea what was going on. He thought he heard birds or rain and asked the reporters at his campaign ‘rally’ to come in from the rain and they all looked at each other because they were indoors. You could see that they all were very uncomfortable but they said nothing because they would lose their jobs if they did.
