“Look, the House is supposed to do all of this work on witnesses and documents BEFORE they send the articles over to the Senate, not to call in new witnesses, go through new documents – that work is supposed to be done in the House.” @KatiePavlich @foxandfriends— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 26, 2019

The Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats said they wanted to RUSH everything through to the Senate because “President Trump is a threat to National Security” (they are vicious, will say anything!), but now they don’t want to go fast anymore, they want to go very slowly. Liars!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 26, 2019
Brad Blakeman “I happen to believe as a lawyer that the charges are defective, they don’t meet the Constitutional standard of high crimes and misdemeanors, so I would like to see a Motion to Dismiss. At least 51 Republican Senators would agree with that-there should be no trial.”— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 26, 2019
…& overwhelming,” but this Scam Impeachment was neither. Also, very unfair with no Due Process, proper representation, or witnesses. Now Pelosi is demanding everything the Republicans weren’t allowed to have in the House. Dems want to run majority Republican Senate. Hypocrites!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 26, 2019
Why should Crazy Nancy Pelosi, just because she has a slight majority in the House, be allowed to Impeach the President of the United States? Got ZERO Republican votes, there was no crime, the call with Ukraine was perfect, with “no pressure.” She said it must be “bipartisan…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 26, 2019
Nancy Pelosi’s District in California has rapidly become one of the worst anywhere in the U.S. when it come to the homeless & crime. It has gotten so bad, so fast – she has lost total control and, along with her equally incompetent governor, Gavin Newsom, it is a very sad sight!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 26, 2019
“Nancy Pelosi has no leverage over the Senate. Mitch McConnell did not nose his way into the impeachment process in the House, and she has no standing in the Senate.” Brad Blakeman.

Russia, Syria, and Iran are killing, or on their way to killing, thousands if inocent civilians in Idlib Province. Don’t do it! Turkey is working hard to stop this carnage.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 26, 2019
Despite all of the great success that our Country has had over the last 3 years, it makes it much more difficult to deal with foreign leaders (and others) when I am having to constantly defend myself against the Do Nothing Democrats & their bogus Impeachment Scam.

“Nancy Pelosi is trying to usurp the Constitutional role of the Senate.

California leads the nation, by far, in both the number of homeless people, and the percentage increase in the homeless population – two terrible stats. Crazy Nancy should focus on that in her very down district, and helping her incompetent governor with the big homeless problem!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 26, 2019

December 2019 • Issue No. 52
BY TIM SCHMIDT – USCCA FOUNDER
Wow. This is it. This is the last time I will be writing to you through our Concealed Carry Report!
I have to admit that I don’t know exactly what to say. I thought about pulling together some of my favorite quotes to really make this meaningful and memorable. Instead, I got caught up reading some of YOUR quotes and looking through some of the thoughts, the comments and the feedback you’ve shared with us through the years. Some of the messages stopped me in my tracks … because THIS is exactly why we do what we do!
“I joined the USCCA for the wealth of information it provides, as well as the peace of mind it brings. Staying focused, staying trained, staying sharp, staying informed and having some fun while doing it are all reasons why I’m a proud member of the USCCA.”
– William F.
“I had no idea how much [USCCA] training would improve my skill level and my confidence.”
– Michael T.
“Although I have been a member for a short period of time, I have learned much from the USCCA.”
– Joya S.
“I can’t thank you enough for providing this service and the wealth of information to help people like me. I take gun ownership and the responsibilities that come with it very seriously and want to be prepared in the correct way. There is now something compelling me to do this. Your organization is guiding me to realize that goal.”
– Nancy B.
“Tim, words are inadequate to express my appreciation to you and all others at USCCA for all that has been done — and continues to be done — to assist Americans toward … safety and what we hope to retain as freedom with which we’ve been blessed up to this date and hour.”
– Lynn C.I wish I could share more but I have promised to streamline these emails, after all! Just know that your kind words and thoughts (and your feedback) have made a big difference. And thanks to all of you, the USCCA has accomplished a lot over this last year. When I look back over the last decade, I can’t help but be inspired by the massive amount of growth and change we’ve experienced, from our very humble beginnings to now more than 300,000 members. Our mission to train, educate and protect remains the same, but we have so many more people on our team, working together to celebrate, support and fight for our right to protect the ones we love.
This may be the last CCR you get from me, but I am so excited for what’s in store! And because of that, I’ve decided that the best way to say goodbye to something like this is to remember everything we’ve accomplished and to look forward to what’s coming next. That means that this little “farewell” is also a pretty big “hello!” How awesome is that? We have our brand new email newsletter, First Line, coming to you soon. We have a New Year to celebrate in just a few more days. And 2020 will bring us a brand new decade, wide open with opportunities and possibilities.
So one last quote before I sign off, since it’s a really good one. I leave you with the words of Mark Twain: “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, dream, discover.”
Thanks so much for supporting the USCCA! I’m excited to take this next step forward and I hope you are, too.
Here’s to a very happy New Year and a host of wonderful new experiences.
Take Care and Stay Safe,

Fake News and Free Speech
By Hal Lindsey
The battle against “fake news” has become a war on freedom of speech. Lots of countries, particularly in Europe and Asia, now have laws intended to eliminate inaccurate news presentations. But these laws have opened the door to suppression of legitimate political criticism and opinion.
Wenzel Michalski, the German director of Human Rights Watch, recently spoke of Germany’s fake news law. He said, “It is vague, overbroad, and turns private companies into overzealous censors to avoid steep fines, leaving users with no judicial oversight or right to appeal.”
Like Germany, the fake news law in France has only made matters worse. French judges can now order the immediate removal of whatever they deem misinformation during election campaigns.
Russia passed a law earlier this year imposing big fines for those who spread whatever the authorities consider fake news. Their law also fines anyone who shows “blatant disrespect” for the government online. Individuals can be fined over $6,000.
In every case, people wanting to restrict free speech used fear of fake news to get the laws passed. The European Union is taking it even further. They have developed a fake news warning system. It identifies so-called fake news, passes that information on to other governments, and pressures online platforms to remove such content.
Truth is absolute. But mere human beings don’t know everything. Eyewitnesses to the same event can have wildly different stories about what they saw. Academics in the same discipline often completely disagree on the facts they’re trying to interpret. In a democracy, the people ultimately decide for themselves. And they don’t just decide how the facts should be interpreted. They decide which facts they will believe and which experts they will trust. When a government decides these things for them, that government ceases to be a democracy.
The US Constitution upholds the right of free speech in the First Amendment. For that reason, the US government cannot directly regulate most speech. But many in America are intent on finding ways to bypass the First Amendment. They have enacted a strategy similar to that of the European Union – massive pressure on service providers and social media platforms.
Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg told the Washington Post, “People worry, and I worry deeply, too, about an erosion of truth. At the same time, I don’t think people want to live in a world where you can only say things that tech companies decide are 100 percent true.”
That should not be a controversial position. But millions were outraged when they heard it. The government can’t restrict speech, so these people hope to silence their ideological opponents using private companies. Some in government want to harass tech companies into suppressing any and all speech that might be deemed politically incorrect. And when the federal government wants to harass you, it can be intimidating to anyone. It seems to be working. We keep hearing of organizations, people, and opinions pushed further down in search engine results, unable to advertise, or being banned from various social media platforms.
It frustrates everyone to hear or read blatantly false information told as truth. But attempts to regulate fake news run into the same problems over and over. Who decides what news is fake, and what news isn’t? Everyone has opinions. Whose opinions should override all others?
For Christians, this is a worldwide problem. The Gospel is not considered politically correct. Some people in power see the message of Jesus as a threat to their power. Other nations are run by people who see the Gospel as dangerous to society.
We need to stand up for free speech. More important, we need to proclaim the Gospel with clarity and love in every way we can. We need to be good stewards of the freedoms we have for as long as we have them.

Robert Powell, the husband of Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, D-Fla., reportedly took $700,000 from a Ukrainian oligarch named Igor Kolomoisky. Mucarsel-Powell sits on the House Judiciary Committee, the committee that drafted two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump for his alleged abuse of power with regards to Ukraine.
