Did you miss or do you want to see it again? The full archive for America's First Christmas is now available on the Insider Extreme...


These guys yesterday did three, three wildly different shows yesterday. The TV show was just magic. It was just magic. I don't know if you -- I don't know if you saw it, but the show last night was about -- the show, television show was about miracles and there were three miracles I think that happened. You know, I saw in the press this morning that the miracles were, they quoted me as saying -- which I didn't say -- something like the miracle is the amount of people that came. The miracle was how many people went Christmas shopping there. I'm like, did you even watch the show?

There is a -- there is a company that is correcting people's hearing, and I don't mean like with a hearing aid or anything else. I had these two wonderful women in my office on, I think it was Monday. Did we leave on Monday? Yeah. It was on Monday right before I went on the plane. And they were in my office and they had both had their hearing restored, not enhanced. Restored. And it's an incredible piece of hardware. I mean, it's just, it's amazing. In America. Only from America. And they're sitting in the office and this one woman is talking to me about how she would always look to other people. She would always look for other people's reactions because she was deaf and she only had about 30% of her hearing, I think, and she was in crowds, she just couldn't hear. Just, she was always bluffing. And she just told this story about how, you know, she's this beautiful, beautiful woman and how she used to have, you know, these hearing aids in high school and I -- and she's talking the story -- telling the story, I thought, how many, how many guys wouldn't have dated her because, you know, she had the hearing aids. "Oh, yeah, she's the one with the hearing aids," or whatever. She talked about how in her high school and her college she was bluffing and she so desperately wanted to be one thing and had to change her major because she couldn't, she couldn't hear. She just couldn't hear in this classroom. And the professor was a guy who actually had experience. So he wasn't working out of the textbook. So you had to listen to him. She said, I couldn't hear him. She said, so I had to, I had to leave my dream job. And she said, now that I was -- then I was, you know, stuck in this dead-end job and, oh, it is just heartbreaking. And she got married and she had kids and then she had this device implanted a few years ago when they were just beginning to test it, and you put it in and then it has to heal for eight months and it's actual restoration of hearing, not like a cochlear implant. And the amazing thing is, she said when they turned it on eight months later, she said, I heard the crispness of the air conditioner. I had never heard it before. And she just described the sound of air to me. And think all the things that we take for granted. She gets into the car and, she said, I heard my child's voice for the first time: Mommy, did they fix your ears? And the way she told this story, I mean, everybody in the office was crying. I get to Wilmington, Ohio, and what were there? About 2,000 people in line at the bookstore, which, because I was told last night before we got on the plane, because of our appearance in Wilmington, Ohio and the people that showed up just at the bookstore, the bookstore has hired three people that they have laid off. Three people now are going back to work at this bookstore. I just think that's great. Thank you for coming.

In that crowd there were, let's see, a mom, a dad, and this son. And he was about, probably 7 or 8. And he had hearing aids. And I was talking to the parents and I asked him a question, and he looked right directly up to them because I could tell that he couldn't hear me. After hearing this story on Monday from these two women, I could -- I just, I knew what he was feeling. And there was Miracle Number 1.

Here I am, I know this technology exists. I know this family probably doesn't know about this technology and I just don't think they could afford it. It's $30,000 an ear. And we can. And I looked at them and I thought, that is not a coincidence that they were sitting in my office on Monday and I know about this and now I see him, and I know we can restore his hearing. So I pulled them off to the side, and during the television show -- they didn't know this, but during the television show, we brought them up. And when I come back from vacation, I'm bringing them in to meet with the doctors. I want to see if there's a way we can restore his hearing, we're going to do it. Just such a cool, cool thing. And there were four miracles, at least four miracles that I personally witnessed yesterday. It was such a great trip out to Wilmington, Ohio, so great.

When I got off stage somebody told me that, again on a handshake, business comes to town from North Carolina. They had heard us talking about Wilmington and they wanted to check it out. They have been up for the last week and they had a handshake deal last night that they were going to hire between 25 and 50 people out of Wilmington, Ohio. They heard us talk about it. They were going to hire these people and expand their business, and they decided to do it in Wilmington because they heard us talk about it and they thought, wow, this sounds like a great community. They went up to check it for themselves and they liked the way the people did business there, all on a handshake. I mean, it was just really fantastic. If you want to help this town out, still the Wilmingtongeneralstore.com still has all of the shops and stuff that you can go and buy something from. These people work their brains out. I didn't get a chance to meet this family that is living in a -- sharing a one-room apartment with another family and they are so destitute that they go to the Wal-Mart to warm up, and they opened up a storefront yesterday and they were selling anything they could get their hands on, used records and everything else. George Lange went into their store and he took a bunch of pictures of them. We'll have to show them to you. It's just amazing, amazing people that did whatever they could to be able to find something of value that maybe somebody would want for Christmas. Instead of just standing there wanting a handout. Wilmington, Ohio. Thank you. Thank you for giving us the Christmas spirit. Thank you for showing us the way out.

 

Several months ago, at the Miss Universe competition, two women took a selfie, then posted it on Instagram. The caption read, "Peace and love." As a result of that selfie, both women faced death threats, and one of the women, along with her entire family, had to flee her home country. The occasion was the 2017 Miss Universe competition, and the women were Miss Iraq and Miss Israel. Miss Iraq is no longer welcome in her own country. The government threatened to strip her of her crown. Of course, she was also badgered for wearing a bikini during the competition.

In an interview, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, said:

When I posted the picture I didn't think for a second there would be blowback. I woke up to calls from my family and the Miss Iraq Organization going insane. The death threats I got online were so scary. The director of the Miss Iraq Organization called me and said they're getting heat from the ministry. He said I have to take the picture down or they will strip me of my title.

Yesterday, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, posted another selfie with Miss Israel, during a visit to Jerusalem.

In an interview, she said that:

I don't think Iraq and Israel are enemies; I think maybe the governments are enemies with each other. There's a lot of Iraqi people that don't have a problem with Israelis.

This is, of course, quite an understatement: Iraq, home to roughly 15,000 Palestinians, refuses to acknowledge Israel as a legitimate country, as it is technically at war with Israel. The adages says that a picture is worth a thousand words. What are we to do when many of those words are hateful or deadly? And how can we find the goodness in such bad situations?

No political bias. That's the catchphrase you're likely to see blasted all over the news today. The Office of the Inspector General found no evidence that political bias played any role, either with former director Comey or other FBI agents, during the Hillary Clinton email investigation. So is it "all good now"... "carry on"... "nothing to see here"? Hardly. Here are a few of the highlights from the 568 page report.

The report makes it clear that there's no evidence that political bias influenced this investigation, but why did they take five hundred and sixty eight pages to make that point? Well, after reading it, I kind of think they want us to understand how difficult it is to prove political bias. I think the Inspector General wants us to read this report in its entirety, and read between the lines. Here are a few of the highlights.

First and foremost, this report straight eviscerated James Comey. You know one of the most controversial decisions of President Trump's tenure - so far - has been his decision to fire the former FBI director. Let's imagine for a second that Trump never did that and Comey was sitting at his desk at the Hoover Building yesterday. I can almost guarantee you that after the release of this report yesterday, Comey would have been fired by this morning anyway. Here are just a few quotes describing his behavior:

"Extraordinary and insubordinate"... not "reasonable"... "engaged in ad hoc decision making"... "serious error in judgement"

So the Hillary train keeps on rolling. She'll escape a courtroom for the fourteen thousandth time.

It goes on and on. This report just destroys Comey's behavior. There's no way he could have remained FBI Director.

The report goes on to analyze the behavior of several FBI agents that were involved in the Clinton investigation. Strzok and Page were but two of five employees that showed questionable behavior, either through text messages or instant messaging. If you read the texts and transcripts, they're pretty damning. In Strzok's case, his bias could have caused a delay in analyzing the contents of Anthony Weiner's laptop. I say again, it could have, but as the OIG alludes… political bias is hard to prove. Another agent that had been caught saying questionable things on an instant messaging service, was actually one of the agents that conducted Hillary Clinton's interview. In that interview, the OIG seems to acknowledge that the FBI had caught Hillary in a lie, and still they let her go. But… political bias is hard to prove.

See the theme here?

So the Hillary train keeps on rolling. She'll escape a courtroom for the fourteen thousandth time. But, as is the common theme for the entire Clinton family, it is those around them that suffer the most. The FBI has been tarnished. People have lost their jobs. Agents have been humiliated. All this for an arrogant and corrupt politician.

Attention earthlings: a "climate emergency" exists. It's official now, because the Berkeley City Council declared it. So, it must be true.

Frankly, you must be living under a rock if you didn't already know that a state of climate emergency exists. And if you don't do something about it, like now, you could be living under a rock very soon. Because according to the foremost authority on climate doom — the Berkeley City Council — this emergency is as dire as World War II.

Council Member Cheryl Davila warns that global warming is driving us toward, "…the sixth mass extinction of species, which could devastate much of life on earth for the next 10 million years."

The city council resolution says:

During World War II, the Bay Area came together across race, age, class, gender and other differences in an extraordinary regional mobilization, building and repairing Liberty ships, converting car assembly plants into tank manufacturing facilities…

The Berkeley City Council says the only way to avert World War II-level disaster is if Americans mobilize in the same way now to confront climate change as we did in 1942 to confront Nazism. Because climate change and Nazism are definitely the same.

It gets worse. The resolution calls our current climate emergency "the greatest crisis in history."

Seriously, their resolution sounds straight out of the Galactic Empire handbook — "mobilizing workers" to build and install "renewable energy infrastructure."

Technically, that means Berkeley will have to completely transform into an Amish community in 12 years.

Berkeley committed itself to becoming a "carbon sink" by 2030. For the uninitiated, that means they want the city's greenhouse gas emissions to be in the negative. Technically, that means Berkeley will have to completely transform into an Amish community in 12 years. Except they won't be able to use any farm animals, because you know, too much methane.

Becoming a carbon sink is not their only strategy. Their resolution also mentions that earth has too many people screwing up the atmosphere, so we must "humanely stabilize population." Interesting — there were some World War II-era figures also interested in "stabilizing" population. They just forgot the "humane" part.
