President Trump and Barack Obama are locked in a dead heat as 2019’s most admired man, according to a new study that underscores the political divide in America. It was Trump’s first time earning the distinction and his predecessor’s 12th.The Gallup poll, conducted each year since 1948, asked Americans to name which man and woman living anywhere in the world they admire most.Of the people surveyed between Dec. 2 and 15, 18 percent of respondents named both Obama and Trump. But the results were predictably split along party lines — with 41 percent of Democrats naming Obama and 45 percent of Republicans choosing Trump.

The Washington Times says this is a leftist Gallop poll, and it's bad news for democrats. The poll seems pretty useless to me, so it's no surprise that ovomit won the last 12 years in a row. "Indeed, 41% of Democrats chose Mr. Obama and 45% of Republicans picked Mr. Trump." The poll obviously included more dems that Pubs. "Former first lady Michelle Obama was the most admired woman, at 10%." Wow, she's really popular. "Mr. Obama has typically been Americans’ choice as the most admired man, having earned the mark in 58 of 72 prior Gallup polls." That's like six polls per year in the last 12 years. LIES!

A columnist writing at AZCentral.com suggests it was “terrifying” that parishioners were armed at the church in White Settlement, Texas. On December 29, Breitbart News reported that a gunman at West Freeway Church of Christ opened fire, only to be shot dead by an armed parishioner. Jack Wilson, the good guy with a gun, was one of many parishioners who drew their guns to fight back when the heinous attack began. On December 31, Elivia Diaz, editorial columnist for the Republic and AZcentral.com reacted to the quick takedown of the gunman by claiming that Wilson’s defensive gun use “has turned into a PR tool by gun advocates.”

Iranian militia leader Hadi al-Amiri, one of several identified as leading an attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad on Tuesday, reportedly visited the White House in 2011 during the presidency of Barack Obama.On Tuesday, a mob in Baghdad attacked the U.S. embassy in retaliation against last weekend’s U.S. airstrikes against the Iran-backed Shiite militia Kataib Hezbollah (KH), responsible for killing an American civilian contractor. KH is one of a number of pro-Iran militias that make up the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF/PMU), which legally became a wing of the Iraqi military after fighting the Sunni Islamic State terrorist group.President Donald Trump has since accused Iran of having “orchestrated”

The video depicts precise targeting and firing of an airstrike proceeded by an explosion and fire. The strike took place in Iraq and was one of five carried out in Iraq and Syria on Sunday.

Nothing is ever as simple as good guy versus bad guy. Reality exists mostly in varying shades of gray. But there is no question Jack Wilson acted heroically as a church volunteer security guard when he killed a killer in the sanctuary of the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas, on Sunday. Wilson, a deeply experienced firearms instructor, was legally carrying and took down a gunman with a single shot.

Maybe Democrats have decided that, in the era of President Trump, honesty is no longer required. Or maybe Elizabeth Warren is just too insecure to tell the truth about her own life. Whatever the reason, the Massachusetts senator has built her campaign on a foundation of exaggerations and misrepresentations. It's common knowledge by now that Warren, one of the top four 2020 Democratic presidential contenders, identified as a Native American, despite being somewhere between 0.1% and 3% Native American and having zero experience in tribal life. If only her misrepresentations began and ended there. Ask her constituents in Massachusetts and they may remind you that the senator also fibbed when she promised

Oh, Beto. Ronald Reagan once characterized people like Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke when he said, "It isn't so much that liberals are ignorant. It's just that they know so many things that aren't so." Such was the case when the failed presidential candidate, Mr. "Hell-Yes-I'm-Going-To-Take-Your-Guns," cleaved to his "all guns bad" fantasies Sunday on Twitter right after the Texas church shooting. Showing that the cliché, "when seconds count, cops are only minutes away," is a cliché for a reason, the wanna-be mass murderer was dispatched within six seconds of getting off his first shot, preventing a mass bloodbath.

Judicial Watch, a nonprofit group promoting government transparency, is suing to get the whistleblower’s e-mails. That’s good news. Because no matter what comes of Trump’s Senate trial, Schiff should be held accountable for his devious methods. The public also needs the truth about the so-called whistleblower.
