• Impeachment vs. Current Tragedy Puts Hacks vs. Heroes on Display

    Surge Summary: A probable terror attack just took the life of more than one American in Pensacola, Florida – including Naval Academy graduate Joshua Watson – and what are Democrats fixated on? Impeaching Donald Trump. Serious American business is being neglected while Pelosi, Schiff and Co. waste time on this sham prosecution.

    This morning on Fox & Friends, I watched a gut-wrenching interview with the family of Joshua Watson, a Naval Academy graduate who was shot five times by a jihadist at Naval Air Station Pensacola last week.  With his last breaths, Joshua identified the shooter and directed police officers to his location.

    The Watson family is a microcosm of what makes America great.  They raised their son to love our country and to serve our country.  But he’s been sacrificed on the altar of political correctness because some still are not serious about the dangers of radical Islamic supremacism.

    This isn’t the first time a U.S. military base has been attacked from within.  Remember Nidal Hasan?  He killed 14 people on Fort Hood after accusing our soldiers of war crimes. Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez killed four Marines in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in 2015.

    Sadly, the Watsons are the type of family that a lot of coastal elites just can’t relate to and don’t care to.  They are the people Hillary Clinton mocked as “deplorable and irredeemable,” the ones Barack Obama ridiculed as clinging to their Bibles and guns.

    But if America ever runs out of families like the Watsons, our country is doomed.

    Watching this family mourn this morning, I wondered if they will ever have another merry Christmas.  And as they weep this Christmas, just think about what other Americans are doing right now in Washington, D.C.

    Did Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Reps. Adam Schiff or Jerry Nadler get up this morning thinking about the Watson family?  In my opinion, there aren’t many issues more important than addressing what happened to their son.  But that’s not what is motivating the progressive left today.

    While the Watsons gave up their son for America, partisan hacks on Capitol Hill are putting their political ambitions ahead of America.  Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler are tearing this country apart with this sham impeachment because they can’t stomach a president who is challenging the status quo.  Click here now to help American Values fight this impeachment insanity!

    Because of Schiff’s obsession with taking down Trump and canceling the votes of 63 million Americans, the House Intelligence Committee hasn’t spent a whole lot of time lately on actual intelligence matters.  When was the last time the committee got a briefing on the value and risks of this program to train foreign troops on our bases?

    The shooter in Pensacola was on social media expressing his hatred for America. He was very open about his hatred of Israel too.  Maybe the FBI should spend less time surveilling members of Congress, journalists and conservative campaigns and spend more time monitoring Islamists!

    Perhaps Adam Schiff and others in his impeachment cabal should spend Christmas with the Watson family.  In between their weeping, he can try explaining to them why progressives have spent so much time pursuing impeachment instead of looking out for Joshua.

    As long as America still produces heroes like Joshua Watson, I have hope for our future.  But if we become controlled by the hacks in Washington, more and more Americans will question why they are sacrificing their sons when we can’t trust our intelligence agencies to do their jobs!
