Bob Beckel's Back On The Five!

Bob Beckel showed up on Fox News The Five today after a stint at CNN. Welcome back Bob! You belong at The Five!

Bob addressed the fact that he is replacing Juan Williams a few days a week, saying Juan 'is smart.' I hate to disagree with Bob his first day back, but, without Juan's daily recitation of the Dem's talking points, Juan really has nothing to say.

A Healthy Skepticism Of Intelligence Agencies

Everyone is in an uproar over the release of emails from the Democratic National Committee and John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign in 2016, even though the veracity of said emails has gone unchallenged.

Whoever obtained those emails and gave them to WikiLeaks deserves an 'atta boy'. The emails gave us a look under the covers of Clinton's campaign and shed some light on some amazing truths about the Clinton presidential campaign that we deserved to know.

Now the 'intelligence' community has prepared a report blaming the Russians for hacking the emails and we are supposed to believe their conclusions without question?

Of course, the intelligence community has never lied to Congress...wrong. The Director Of National Intelligence, James Clapper, lied to Congress when asked if the Obama administration was collecting data on millions of Americans in 2013.

Of course, the daily briefing that is given to the President is always totally truthful...wrong. The fact is that analysts have been pressured to 'massage' the reports to fall in line with HRH Obama's agenda. If I am not mistaken, I believe that at least one high ranking general was fired by HRH Obama because he wouldn't fall in line.

So why are the reports that were given to Congress today and to be given tomorrow to President-elect Trump to be believed without a healthy dose of skepticism?

A Wendy's ad famously said, "Show me the beef!" President-elect Trump has every right to ask, 'Show me the proof!'

Democrats On Obamacare

All day long the Democrats have been demanding that the Republicans disclose what their new plan is that will replace the 'Un'Affordable Care Act, more commonly known as Obamacare. This just tickles me to death.

Of course, there are a couple quotes from Democrats that they would do well to remember now.

I'm sure everyone remembers, "Elections have consequences."

And remember when the 'Un'Affordable Care Act was being rammed down our throats without any input from Republicans and not a a single Republican vote? Nancy Pelosi said "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy."

So here is my suggestion to Schumer, Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats...Elections have consequences! Sit down and shut up. We'll let you know what's going on when we're good and ready.
