GEORGE FLOYD'S MEMORIAL

Thursday, hundreds of mourners turned out in Minneapolis, and people across the nation paused and watched on TV, as a memorial was held for George Floyd, the black man killed when a police officer held his knee on his neck for almost nine minutes.

It was a moving ceremony, marred only by the Rev. Al Sharpton’s predictable decision to turn the eulogy, which could have been an opportunity to start healing divisions and calming the violence – something that Floyd’s family says he would have wanted – into a divisive partisan speech. But then, Al Sharpton is hardly the person I would choose as a symbol of how people who foment hatred and violence against others should have to face justice.

Here are some wiser words to memorialize Mr. Floyd, from Dr. Alveda King…

And the memorial in photos

And here’s something we can all do that’s more important and effective than riots or political speeches or threats: how about people of all races coming together to pray?

THE DEMOCRATS KAMIKAZE MISSION

Napoleon famously advised that you should never interrupt the enemy when he’s making a mistake. So maybe I shouldn’t even talk about the latest kamikaze mission that Democrats have embarked upon. Then again, because I care about this country and its people, I feel I should at least try to talk them out of their dive-bombers before they do irreparable harm to many innocent people. Besides, if history is any teacher, they will pay no attention to the warnings I try to give them anyway.

https://amazon.com/Guns-Grits-Gravy-Mike-Huckabee/dp/1250061008/

Across America, officials in deep-blue cities are actually, seriously – I kid you not – talking about doing away with their police departments. In Minneapolis, the city that set off the nationwide protests, rioting, looting, burning, assaults and killings, the police chief requested 400 more officers to deal with the mayhem and was turned down flat. Instead, the city council (12 Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party members and a Greenie, zero Republicans) wants to replace the police with a “transformative new model of public safety,” such as sending in a social worker where they used to send cops. This would be like sending in a lamb to deal with a lion because you don’t like that lion tamers carry a whip and a chair.

This is all in response to a nationwide call to “defund the police.” This call has been going on for decades, mostly from criminals, but this is the first time any public officials have actually been dumb enough to consider it. And Minneapolis isn’t alone: San Francisco plans to redirect its police funds to black community causes. Los Angeles isn’t talking about replacing cops with Good Humor men or clerks from Build-a-Bear, but they are considering cutting up to $150 million from the police budget. Yes, that’s exactly what San Francisco and L.A. need: even less law enforcement. This shows just how far to the left and away from mainstream Americans that the Democratic Party has lurched.

Just think: two weeks ago, they were arresting people for opening their businesses; now they don’t even want to arrest you for burning and looting someone’s business.

As a former Governor, let me explain something: the #1 job of every public official is to protect public safety, whether you’re protecting them from disease, crime, or natural disasters. Sure, there are many other important issues, but everything else takes a back seat when public safety is endangered. And these leftist loons are choosing to slash or do away with policing at a time when it’s never been needed more.

This has nothing to do with denying justice for George Floyd (his killers have been fired and charged with murder), or fighting racism, which doesn't require turning our cities over to lawless mobs who are victimizing people of all races. Do they really think that doing away with the police will make rioters, looters, and radical anarchists say, “Well, okay, then,” dust off their hands and go home? I’d ask what they’ve been smoking, but since they legalized it in their cities, we all know.

Absolutely nobody that I know has suggested that Floyd’s death wasn’t horrifying and unjust, and that it didn’t call for serious action. But turning over our cities to mobs that will just prey on the same neighborhoods the people demanding this action claim to be championing is crazy. I seriously doubt Beverly Hills will cut its police force. All those rich liberal celebrities need someone to protect them from the criminals whose bail they’re paying. (Think that’s unfair? Here’s a reminder: )

Yes, just as they badmouth cops and demand guns be banned, then show up at the Oscars under heavy police guard with armed private security, the celebrities will not go unprotected from the consequences of their terrible decisions. All the rest of you will, though.

Want to see what a town that can’t enforce the law looks like? Like Minneapolis, Chicago’s leaders blame Trump and Republicans for their high crime rate, despite decades of one-party Democratic rule. These cities allow rioters to destroy black neighborhoods while claiming it’s for the benefit of black people, all because a white cop murdered a black man. But in Chicago, while the murder and shooting rates are down, there were still 2,139 shootings in 2019 and 490 murders. Many of the victims were black residents shot or killed by black gang members. How would it help black residents to further reduce policing in their neighborhoods? There would still be people with guns for the public to fear, only they’d be murderous gang members. Is that an improvement?

But before you start slamming me on Twitter, here’s a young black man from Oakland who sees the same problem with the left’s position:

Residents and businesses were already fleeing blue cities, and uncontrolled riots, releasing of rioters and talk of cutting police protection is opening the floodgates, just as it’s causing a huge spike in gun sales.

Here’s my advice to Democratic officials that I am certain they will ignore. There are two ways this insane abdication of your basic civic responsibility will end, both very bad: Either the public will turn on you immediately and vote you out of office in November…or else you might hang on to power in ever-shrinking areas, dominated by high crime and anarchy that you can’t control because the only people left there will be criminals and victims unable to leave for one reason or another. As your appeal becomes “more selective,” your base will shrink and your cities will exist largely as sad cautionary tales for the rest of the country, which is already sitting up and taking notice of your dangerously irresponsible policy decisions.

One more piece of advice: You’d better at least budget for a lot of rent-a-cops to deal with the rioting that’s going to happen in your cities when Trump is re-elected in a landslide.

LEAST SURPRISING NEWS OF THE DAY:

Police unions have long been supporters of the Democrats, but they’re not going to stand for Biden since he’s not standing up for them. On the bright side, I’m sure the Democrats will get the endorsement of the ARLU: the American Rioters and Looters Union.

Say, remember that study in the British medical journal The Lancet, claiming that hydroxychloroquine not only didn’t help with COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus, but was linked to heart arrhythmia and a 34% higher risk of death? It got big play in the anti-Trump media, which apparently would rather see a promising treatment fail than admit Trump might have been right about something. Because of that study, patients were taken off the drug, and clinical trials, including one by the World Health Organization, were halted.

LANCET RETRACTS HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE STUDY

Well, I suspected there was something hinky about that study, but since I’m not a doctor (or a pundit who plays a doctor in liberal media outlets), I was waiting for some experts to weigh in

Now they have, The Lancet has RETRACTED that study because they can’t vouch for the veracity of the data or the methodology. Several aspects of the dataset were impossible, and the study didn’t separate out people who were already extremely ill before they got the drug (one of the obvious problems with the previous VA study.)

Again, I’m not a doctor. I don’t know if this drug works or not. But I do know that it’s shameful to root against a drug working just because President Trump said it might be worth a try. To all those reporters who blame him for every coronavirus death, will you now take responsibility for any deaths caused by people stopping treatment because of your biased flogging of a bad piece of research?

Also worth mentioning: President Trump ended his daily dose of hydroxychloroquine two weeks ago, and he’s perfectly fine. Never mind!

    The radical left ARE illogical by design. Demagoguery involves appeals to emotion, not rationality. The police are evil, George Floyd proves that, so defunding the police is the right thing to do. The logical consequences of such an act are of no importance. The emotional appeal is all that matters if your goal is power.

    Gov. Huckabee,
    Your 6/5/2020 edition was great as normal. I have just about stopped watching any news on t.v. (including Fox). Just can not be assured of their accuracy.

    I do my own research about ongoing news throughout the day, Listen to conservative talk radio when I can. But mostly, I depend on your daily recap of news. I know you tell the truth and have no hidden agenda.

    I have done my best, last month in particular, to help promote your Daily Edition. Several friends have subscribed and passed the invitation on to their friends.

    Your news is one of our last hopes of getting honest news to the public. Keep up good work.

    Your friend,

    I live in the mountains East of San Francisco. It's a few hours away, but your pointing out this completely loony thought of reducing or doing away with cops, if that actually happened, the business owners and all corporate business including foods will pack up and move to other states. They wouldn't risk losing out to the unlawful again. Just like some who get their 1st disaster, pack up and move elsewhere seeking safety and prosperity. SF, LA, MINNEAPOLIS, NY, they would all turn into mob-run lawless ghost towns.
    Can't help but wonder if those fool leaders are getting payola from mob or hang. Maybe the very same financiers of ANTIFA are paying off the city leaders?

    I'm going to start my planning for possible radical change for the worst.

    Mr. Huckabee
    I agree with your assessment of Sharpton. He had an opportunity to bringing words of healing and love. Yet, instead of speaking the Gospel of Jesus Christ(aren’t we as Christ followers called to do that?) he said everything that would stir up more division and hate. We will know them by their fruit, yes? Unfortunately, Mr. Sharpton shared rotten fruit and planted seeds of unrighteousness. May God have mercy on his soul. ????

    Great Article Mike,

    This should be the mantra for the Election. "Democrats Destroy Everything!"
    1. Destroy black neighborhoods
    2. Destroy black businesses
    3. Destroy other neighborhoods and businesses
    4. Destroy peace by releasing violent criminals onto the streets, and taking peace officers off the streets.
    5. Destroying peace and families and small businessess: Putting hard working Americans in jail for wanting to open their businesses, but paying to put back on the streets those who harm people and destroy homes and businesses.
    6. Destroying lives: Who would rather let American's die so President Trump won't be seen as hopeful about hydroxicholorquine to save people's lives
    7. Destroy Truth with their lies
    8. Destroy our economy with huge wasteful spending programs
    9. Destroy our economy by sending our jobs and wealth to China
    10. Destroy our Democracy by rigging elections in their favor
    11. Destroy the Traditional American values that made this nation great.
    12. Dividing America by teaching students to hate America and traditional American values.
    13. Destroy race relations by lying and saying all whites are evil racists.
    14. Destroy faith in "In God We Trust!"

    Those are just what come to mind easily. There are probably plenty of more things you can add to this. This is how Republicans should talk about Democrats before the election: Democrats destroy everything. Then Republicans must show what they are for to make America Great!

    Dear Governor,
    I certainly hope your are correct and that police all over MN (and this country) get out and vote for President Trump! And I hope the people (color does not matter) realize that without a law and order presence, we will have no safety or justice at all.

    MN is not that "Blue".... as in 2016, he only lost the state by 11 out if about 70 counties...and with the exception of 2, all were in the immediate Minneapolis - St Paul metro area. He lost only bt 46,000 votes. Had a recount been done in MN, perhaps fraud woukd have been discovered, and he would have carried this state as well.

    There ARE people with severe TDS...they make me very tired and it is no use trying to reason with them. I doibt, even if one makes a rational, fact-based argument to contradict their theme of the day, they just use anger and "turn off".

    Two things about George Floyd's death really bother me:
    1) I want to see the DETAILS regarding the MN Governor's initial refusal to call out the National Guard climing he could not "due to a credible threat made against the guard."
    2) Now that AG Ellison is in charge of the prosecution, I am wondering why he "upped" the initil charges to murder two. This will be much more difficult to prove (if, in fact, the accused actually obtains honest and hard working defense lawyers). And...what if....the higher charge does NOT find approval with the jury? Will this then be another excuse for more riots, looting, and destruction? Is Ellison actually thinking about this possibility and planning for something like that in advance of November?
    (Remember, It is strongly rumoured that people like Omar and Ellison may be closely associated with BLM, CAIR and other groups who would like nothing better than to see the destruction of the United States of America (as long as it does not interfere with their own well being.).

    06/05/2020 11:08 PM

    Mike, you are right about the topics you discussed today. I am very concerned about losing the support of the police force, which we just cannot do without. I live in a little town in southern Utah, and am actually afraid to drive in certain areas because of the violent people. They just started a "Black Lives Matter" group here, in this mostly retired and aged people. That frightens me, because no matter what they say, violence just follows that kind of thinking. I am from the St. Louis area, and I know what real racism is. We have very few blacks here, many more Mexicans and native Indians, and they aren't making a big fuss. Ten years ago, this was a quiet little resort town. I am 87, and can't afford to move.

Stating that all this is needed in order for the black community to be heard and really 'listened to'.....where have they been & what have they done for the last 20 to 30 years that they have been in public service to the black community?

    First let me say that George Floyd did not deserve to die in the manner that he did. It was a horrific death. The police officers should be punished to the full extent of the law. The marches and protests have all proven that so many are in raged by this action. The riots and looting need to stop. We are destroying our country. We need to come together and heal. We also need to know the truth about George Floyd. At the time he was killed, he was at least on fentanyl. He also had a long criminal record and was no choirboy. He may have been trying to get his life together But being on drugs is not the way to do it. We need to be truthful about all sides of the story. All Americans deserve a second chance and I feel bad that this man did not completely get his second chance. Destroying this country will never bring it back to him. We need to have an honest discussion about how our Police are trained and how they are held accountable. If we disband all our police stations, our country will be evolved into anarchy. It is happening already. We need to wake up and pay attention! God help us all.

    The Turmoil of America
    by Conejosheepdog

    My Heavenly Father,
    As I prepare to enter into a divided world that has allowed evil to cause confusion and hate, I am praying for your guidance, compassion and strength. I pray for the protection of the innocent from those who prey upon them. I see America in deep trouble and struggling for survival. It deeply concerns and grieves me that this nation has some how been deceived. As a result, our priceless right to vote has yielded leaders who appear to be without faith or conscious. These elected leaders now hold positions which they have used to nullify what past generations have fought to establish. Instead we see our beloved nation with a socialist government that is dictatorial, untrustworthy, and corrupt. We are constantly bombarded with deceptive words and actions. False promises are made to establish, maintain, and increase personal political power. And at the same time, those ambitious for power increase their ranks and their self proclaimed verbage of political correctness is used for intimidation and division.. They prey on the weak and uninformed and then do not honor their word.

    Heavenly Father, America and this world needs you now more then ever. Evil is removing you and your teachings from our government, the rule of law, our schools, threatening our places of worship, and attacking our religious holidays that celebrate who you are.

    I'll end here Lord for duty calls. However, I assure you that there are many Americans who really love you and want to follow and worship you. There are those of us who are grateful for our daily blessings and desire to always be faithful to you. Those who do not honor you, need you desperately as well and we pray for them . I know you hear our children , young adults, and seniors as they cry out in a loud voice for this nations to wake up,
    We Need God In America Again. Amen??

    The radical left ARE illogical by design. Demagoguery involves appeals to emotion, not rationality. The police are evil, George Floyd proves that, so defunding the police is the right thing to do. The logical consequences of such an act are of no importance. The emotional appeal is all that matters if your goal is power.

    Gov. Huckabee,
    Your 6/5/2020 edition was great as normal. I have just about stopped watching any news on t.v. (including Fox). Just can not be assured of their accuracy.

    I do my own research about ongoing news throughout the day, Listen to conservative talk radio when I can. But mostly, I depend on your daily recap of news. I know you tell the truth and have no hidden agenda.

    I have done my best, last month in particular, to help promote your Daily Edition. Several friends have subscribed and passed the invitation on to their friends.

    Your news is one of our last hopes of getting honest news to the public. Keep up good work.

    Your friend,

    I live in the mountains East of San Francisco. It's a few hours away, but your pointing out this completely loony thought of reducing or doing away with cops, if that actually happened, the business owners and all corporate business including foods will pack up and move to other states. They wouldn't risk losing out to the unlawful again. Just like some who get their 1st disaster, pack up and move elsewhere seeking safety and prosperity. SF, LA, MINNEAPOLIS, NY, they would all turn into mob-run lawless ghost towns.
    Can't help but wonder if those fool leaders are getting payola from mob or hang. Maybe the very same financiers of ANTIFA are paying off the city leaders?

    I'm going to start my planning for possible radical change for the worst.

    Mr. Huckabee
    I agree with your assessment of Sharpton. He had an opportunity to bringing words of healing and love. Yet, instead of speaking the Gospel of Jesus Christ(aren’t we as Christ followers called to do that?) he said everything that would stir up more division and hate. We will know them by their fruit, yes? Unfortunately, Mr. Sharpton shared rotten fruit and planted seeds of unrighteousness. May God have mercy on his soul. ????

    Great Article Mike,

    This should be the mantra for the Election. "Democrats Destroy Everything!"
    1. Destroy black neighborhoods
    2. Destroy black businesses
    3. Destroy other neighborhoods and businesses
    4. Destroy peace by releasing violent criminals onto the streets, and taking peace officers off the streets.
    5. Destroying peace and families and small businessess: Putting hard working Americans in jail for wanting to open their businesses, but paying to put back on the streets those who harm people and destroy homes and businesses.
    6. Destroying lives: Who would rather let American's die so President Trump won't be seen as hopeful about hydroxicholorquine to save people's lives
    7. Destroy Truth with their lies
    8. Destroy our economy with huge wasteful spending programs
    9. Destroy our economy by sending our jobs and wealth to China
    10. Destroy our Democracy by rigging elections in their favor
    11. Destroy the Traditional American values that made this nation great.
    12. Dividing America by teaching students to hate America and traditional American values.
    13. Destroy race relations by lying and saying all whites are evil racists.
    14. Destroy faith in "In God We Trust!"

    Those are just what come to mind easily. There are probably plenty of more things you can add to this. This is how Republicans should talk about Democrats before the election: Democrats destroy everything. Then Republicans must show what they are for to make America Great!

    Dear Governor,
    I certainly hope your are correct and that police all over MN (and this country) get out and vote for President Trump! And I hope the people (color does not matter) realize that without a law and order presence, we will have no safety or justice at all.

    MN is not that "Blue".... as in 2016, he only lost the state by 11 out if about 70 counties...and with the exception of 2, all were in the immediate Minneapolis - St Paul metro area. He lost only bt 46,000 votes. Had a recount been done in MN, perhaps fraud woukd have been discovered, and he would have carried this state as well.

    There ARE people with severe TDS...they make me very tired and it is no use trying to reason with them. I doibt, even if one makes a rational, fact-based argument to contradict their theme of the day, they just use anger and "turn off".

    Two things about George Floyd's death really bother me:
    1) I want to see the DETAILS regarding the MN Governor's initial refusal to call out the National Guard climing he could not "due to a credible threat made against the guard."
    2) Now that AG Ellison is in charge of the prosecution, I am wondering why he "upped" the initil charges to murder two. This will be much more difficult to prove (if, in fact, the accused actually obtains honest and hard working defense lawyers). And...what if....the higher charge does NOT find approval with the jury? Will this then be another excuse for more riots, looting, and destruction? Is Ellison actually thinking about this possibility and planning for something like that in advance of November?
    (Remember, It is strongly rumoured that people like Omar and Ellison may be closely associated with BLM, CAIR and other groups who would like nothing better than to see the destruction of the United States of America (as long as it does not interfere with their own well being.).

    Mike, you are right about the topics you discussed today. I am very concerned about losing the support of the police force, which we just cannot do without. I live in a little town in southern Utah, and am actually afraid to drive in certain areas because of the violent people. They just started a "Black Lives Matter" group here, in this mostly retired and aged people. That frightens me, because no matter what they say, violence just follows that kind of thinking. I am from the St. Louis area, and I know what real racism is. We have very few blacks here, many more Mexicans and native Indians, and they aren't making a big fuss. Ten years ago, this was a quiet little resort town. I am 87, and can't afford to move.

    One question - All these Washington, swamp dwelling hypocrites that are defending & joining in with the rioters, looters & thugs who have taken over the peaceful protests around the country in the "name of change". Stating that all this is needed in order for the black community to be heard and really 'listened to'.....where have they been & what have they done for the last 20 to 30 years that they have been in public service to the black community?

Any person who thinks they can get along without law enforcement must also be convinced that they don't need a fire department either, even though evidence of need for both is seen throughout the world daily. They aren't idiots or morons or brainless...they are MAD!

    All conservative candidates need to start campaigning on SPECIFIC ACTIONS THAT NEED FUNDING TO WIN! Actions will win support and elections. Campaigning on catching up to the Democrats, showing strength to Pelosi, donate because President Trump supported me in a speech, meeting Critical yearly, quarterly, monthly,weekly goals-All with out the mention of one action provides no reason to give support.

  • Angela Martignetti

    06/05/2020 10:01 PM

    First let me say that George Floyd did not deserve to die in the manner that he did. It was a horrific death. The police officers should be punished to the full extent of the law. The marches and protests have all proven that so many are in raged by this action. The riots and looting need to stop. We are destroying our country. We need to come together and heal. We also need to know the truth about George Floyd. At the time he was killed, he was at least on fentanyl. He also had a long criminal record and was no choirboy. He may have been trying to get his life together But being on drugs is not the way to do it. We need to be truthful about all sides of the story. All Americans deserve a second chance and I feel bad that this man did not completely get his second chance. Destroying this country will never bring it back to him. We need to have an honest discussion about how our Police are trained and how they are held accountable. If we disband all our police stations, our country will be evolved into anarchy. It is happening already. We need to wake up and pay attention! God help us all.

    Actually, I'd like to go for the "ever-shrinking areas" gambit that you mentioned in your Kamikaze piece. I've been trying to get grammie to pack up with me and leave La La Land (California) forever and defunding the cops just might do the trick. In fact, I'll probably be able to convince many of my cop friends to come with me.

    I was outraged by the media today after President Trump spoke, and he went to sign the proclamation. They were rude to him, and he asked for silence, and they still kept asking questions. He asked for silence a second time, and they just simply ignored the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES! I am totally baffled by such irresponsible and rude behavior!

    Hydroxycloroquin
    I have been using for over 25 years and no problem, it has been a lifesaver for Rheumatiod Arthritis. The problem it seems to me is that people like Dr Faucchi and others have a vested interest in their new high priced products. This drug is cheap and we wouldn't want these people to lose their chance for more millions in THEIR pockets.

    The Turmoil of America
    by Conejosheepdog

    My Heavenly Father,
    As I prepare to enter into a divided world that has allowed evil to cause confusion and hate, I am praying for your guidance, compassion and strength. I pray for the protection of the innocent from those who prey upon them. I see America in deep trouble and struggling for survival. It deeply concerns and grieves me that this nation has some how been deceived. As a result, our priceless right to vote has yielded leaders who appear to be without faith or conscious. These elected leaders now hold positions which they have used to nullify what past generations have fought to establish. Instead we see our beloved nation with a socialist government that is dictatorial, untrustworthy, and corrupt. We are constantly bombarded with deceptive words and actions. False promises are made to establish, maintain, and increase personal political power. And at the same time, those ambitious for power increase their ranks and their self proclaimed verbage of political correctness is used for intimidation and division.. They prey on the weak and uninformed and then do not honor their word.

    Heavenly Father, America and this world needs you now more then ever. Evil is removing you and your teachings from our government, the rule of law, our schools, threatening our places of worship, and attacking our religious holidays that celebrate who you are.

    I'll end here Lord for duty calls. However, I assure you that there are many Americans who really love you and want to follow and worship you. There are those of us who are grateful for our daily blessings and desire to always be faithful to you. Those who do not honor you, need you desperately as well and we pray for them . I know you hear our children , young adults, and seniors as they cry out in a loud voice for this nations to wake up,
    We Need God In America Again. Amen??

GEORGE FLOYD'S MEMORIAL

Thursday, hundreds of mourners turned out in Minneapolis, and people across the nation paused and watched on TV, as a memorial was held for George Floyd, the black man killed when a police officer held his knee on his neck for almost nine minutes.

It was a moving ceremony, marred only by the Rev. Al Sharpton’s predictable decision to turn the eulogy, which could have been an opportunity to start healing divisions and calming the violence – something that Floyd’s family says he would have wanted – into a divisive partisan speech. But then, Al Sharpton is hardly the person I would choose as a symbol of how people who foment hatred and violence against others should have to face justice.

Here are some wiser words to memorialize Mr. Floyd, from Dr. Alveda King…

And the memorial in photos

And here’s something we can all do that’s more important and effective than riots or political speeches or threats: how about people of all races coming together to pray?

THE DEMOCRATS KAMIKAZE MISSION

Napoleon famously advised that you should never interrupt the enemy when he’s making a mistake. So maybe I shouldn’t even talk about the latest kamikaze mission that Democrats have embarked upon. Then again, because I care about this country and its people, I feel I should at least try to talk them out of their dive-bombers before they do irreparable harm to many innocent people. Besides, if history is any teacher, they will pay no attention to the warnings I try to give them anyway.

https://amazon.com/Guns-Grits-Gravy-Mike-Huckabee/dp/1250061008/

Across America, officials in deep-blue cities are actually, seriously – I kid you not – talking about doing away with their police departments. In Minneapolis, the city that set off the nationwide protests, rioting, looting, burning, assaults and killings, the police chief requested 400 more officers to deal with the mayhem and was turned down flat. Instead, the city council (12 Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party members and a Greenie, zero Republicans) wants to replace the police with a “transformative new model of public safety,” such as sending in a social worker where they used to send cops. This would be like sending in a lamb to deal with a lion because you don’t like that lion tamers carry a whip and a chair.

This is all in response to a nationwide call to “defund the police.” This call has been going on for decades, mostly from criminals, but this is the first time any public officials have actually been dumb enough to consider it. And Minneapolis isn’t alone: San Francisco plans to redirect its police funds to black community causes. Los Angeles isn’t talking about replacing cops with Good Humor men or clerks from Build-a-Bear, but they are considering cutting up to $150 million from the police budget. Yes, that’s exactly what San Francisco and L.A. need: even less law enforcement. This shows just how far to the left and away from mainstream Americans that the Democratic Party has lurched.

Just think: two weeks ago, they were arresting people for opening their businesses; now they don’t even want to arrest you for burning and looting someone’s business.

As a former Governor, let me explain something: the #1 job of every public official is to protect public safety, whether you’re protecting them from disease, crime, or natural disasters. Sure, there are many other important issues, but everything else takes a back seat when public safety is endangered. And these leftist loons are choosing to slash or do away with policing at a time when it’s never been needed more.

This has nothing to do with denying justice for George Floyd (his killers have been fired and charged with murder), or fighting racism, which doesn't require turning our cities over to lawless mobs who are victimizing people of all races. Do they really think that doing away with the police will make rioters, looters, and radical anarchists say, “Well, okay, then,” dust off their hands and go home? I’d ask what they’ve been smoking, but since they legalized it in their cities, we all know.

Absolutely nobody that I know has suggested that Floyd’s death wasn’t horrifying and unjust, and that it didn’t call for serious action. But turning over our cities to mobs that will just prey on the same neighborhoods the people demanding this action claim to be championing is crazy. I seriously doubt Beverly Hills will cut its police force. All those rich liberal celebrities need someone to protect them from the criminals whose bail they’re paying. (Think that’s unfair? Here’s a reminder: )

Yes, just as they badmouth cops and demand guns be banned, then show up at the Oscars under heavy police guard with armed private security, the celebrities will not go unprotected from the consequences of their terrible decisions. All the rest of you will, though.

Want to see what a town that can’t enforce the law looks like? Like Minneapolis, Chicago’s leaders blame Trump and Republicans for their high crime rate, despite decades of one-party Democratic rule. These cities allow rioters to destroy black neighborhoods while claiming it’s for the benefit of black people, all because a white cop murdered a black man. But in Chicago, while the murder and shooting rates are down, there were still 2,139 shootings in 2019 and 490 murders. Many of the victims were black residents shot or killed by black gang members. How would it help black residents to further reduce policing in their neighborhoods? There would still be people with guns for the public to fear, only they’d be murderous gang members. Is that an improvement?

But before you start slamming me on Twitter, here’s a young black man from Oakland who sees the same problem with the left’s position:

Residents and businesses were already fleeing blue cities, and uncontrolled riots, releasing of rioters and talk of cutting police protection is opening the floodgates, just as it’s causing a huge spike in gun sales.

Here’s my advice to Democratic officials that I am certain they will ignore. There are two ways this insane abdication of your basic civic responsibility will end, both very bad: Either the public will turn on you immediately and vote you out of office in November…or else you might hang on to power in ever-shrinking areas, dominated by high crime and anarchy that you can’t control because the only people left there will be criminals and victims unable to leave for one reason or another. As your appeal becomes “more selective,” your base will shrink and your cities will exist largely as sad cautionary tales for the rest of the country, which is already sitting up and taking notice of your dangerously irresponsible policy decisions.

One more piece of advice: You’d better at least budget for a lot of rent-a-cops to deal with the rioting that’s going to happen in your cities when Trump is re-elected in a landslide.

LEAST SURPRISING NEWS OF THE DAY:

Police unions have long been supporters of the Democrats, but they’re not going to stand for Biden since he’s not standing up for them. On the bright side, I’m sure the Democrats will get the endorsement of the ARLU: the American Rioters and Looters Union.

Say, remember that study in the British medical journal The Lancet, claiming that hydroxychloroquine not only didn’t help with COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus, but was linked to heart arrhythmia and a 34% higher risk of death? It got big play in the anti-Trump media, which apparently would rather see a promising treatment fail than admit Trump might have been right about something. Because of that study, patients were taken off the drug, and clinical trials, including one by the World Health Organization, were halted.

LANCET RETRACTS HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE STUDY

Well, I suspected there was something hinky about that study, but since I’m not a doctor (or a pundit who plays a doctor in liberal media outlets), I was waiting for some experts to weigh in

Now they have, The Lancet has RETRACTED that study because they can’t vouch for the veracity of the data or the methodology. Several aspects of the dataset were impossible, and the study didn’t separate out people who were already extremely ill before they got the drug (one of the obvious problems with the previous VA study.)

Again, I’m not a doctor. I don’t know if this drug works or not. But I do know that it’s shameful to root against a drug working just because President Trump said it might be worth a try. To all those reporters who blame him for every coronavirus death, will you now take responsibility for any deaths caused by people stopping treatment because of your biased flogging of a bad piece of research?

Also worth mentioning: President Trump ended his daily dose of hydroxychloroquine two weeks ago, and he’s perfectly fine. Never mind!

    One question - All these Washington, swamp dwelling hypocrites that are defending & joining in with the rioters, looters & thugs who have taken over the peaceful protests around the country in the "name of change". Stating that all this is needed in order for the black community to be heard and really 'listened to'.....where have they been & what have they done for the last 20 to 30 years that they have been in public service to the black community?

    It's past time to confirm that the left hasn't moved more left...they've gone stark raving mad! Any person who thinks they can get along without law enforcement must also be convinced that they don't need a fire department either, even though evidence of need for both is seen throughout the world daily. They aren't idiots or morons or brainless...they are MAD!

    All conservative candidates need to start campaigning on SPECIFIC ACTIONS THAT NEED FUNDING TO WIN! Actions will win support and elections. Campaigning on catching up to the Democrats, showing strength to Pelosi, donate because President Trump supported me in a speech, meeting Critical yearly, quarterly, monthly,weekly goals-All with out the mention of one action provides no reason to give support.

    First let me say that George Floyd did not deserve to die in the manner that he did. It was a horrific death. The police officers should be punished to the full extent of the law. The marches and protests have all proven that so many are in raged by this action. The riots and looting need to stop. We are destroying our country. We need to come together and heal. We also need to know the truth about George Floyd. At the time he was killed, he was at least on fentanyl. He also had a long criminal record and was no choirboy. He may have been trying to get his life together But being on drugs is not the way to do it. We need to be truthful about all sides of the story. All Americans deserve a second chance and I feel bad that this man did not completely get his second chance. Destroying this country will never bring it back to him. We need to have an honest discussion about how our Police are trained and how they are held accountable. If we disband all our police stations, our country will be evolved into anarchy. It is happening already. We need to wake up and pay attention! God help us all.

    Our President knows what he is doing....this drug works at a certain stage of the germs being in the body...sad we cannot think outside the box when there is a pandemic going on...it may not be the beall/endall...but if it saved some people great...just like ventilators do no work either...medicine will be found...but if each dose costs 10,000.00 that will determine it's use...who knows research must be done....vaccine will be found (praying) maybe it will help with ebola or some other problem down the road...oh..about disbanding police forces...what is wrong with people???

    Dear Governor,
    Actually, I'd like to go for the "ever-shrinking areas" gambit that you mentioned in your Kamikaze piece. I've been trying to get grammie to pack up with me and leave La La Land (California) forever and defunding the cops just might do the trick. In fact, I'll probably be able to convince many of my cop friends to come with me.

    Thanks again for your evening news. You give us so much logic and common sense that we aren’t seeing from the media outlets at all. I really appreciate getting your link every evening. Please keep it coming!

    I was outraged by the media today after President Trump spoke, and he went to sign the proclamation. They were rude to him, and he asked for silence, and they still kept asking questions. He asked for silence a second time, and they just simply ignored the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES! I am totally baffled by such irresponsible and rude behavior!

    Hydroxycloroquin
    I have been using for over 25 years and no problem, it has been a lifesaver for Rheumatiod Arthritis. The problem it seems to me is that people like Dr Faucchi and others have a vested interest in their new high priced products. This drug is cheap and we wouldn't want these people to lose their chance for more millions in THEIR pockets.

    The browning of our Country is a slow process hampered by the cultural differences. Meantime racism remains the demented justification for lawlessness and riots on the streets of America.

    The Turmoil of America
    by Conejosheepdog

    My Heavenly Father,
    As I prepare to enter into a divided world that has allowed evil to cause confusion and hate, I am praying for your guidance, compassion and strength. I pray for the protection of the innocent from those who prey upon them. I see America in deep trouble and struggling for survival. It deeply concerns and grieves me that this nation has some how been deceived. As a result, our priceless right to vote has yielded leaders who appear to be without faith or conscious. These elected leaders now hold positions which they have used to nullify what past generations have fought to establish. Instead we see our beloved nation with a socialist government that is dictatorial, untrustworthy, and corrupt. We are constantly bombarded with deceptive words and actions. False promises are made to establish, maintain, and increase personal political power. And at the same time, those ambitious for power increase their ranks and their self proclaimed verbage of political correctness is used for intimidation and division.. They prey on the weak and uninformed and then do not honor their word.

    Heavenly Father, America and this world needs you now more then ever. Evil is removing you and your teachings from our government, the rule of law, our schools, threatening our places of worship, and attacking our religious holidays that celebrate who you are.

    I'll end here Lord for duty calls. However, I assure you that there are many Americans who really love you and want to follow and worship you. There are those of us who are grateful for our daily blessings and desire to always be faithful to you. Those who do not honor you, need you desperately as well and we pray for them . I know you hear our children , young adults, and seniors as they cry out in a loud voice for this nations to wake up,
    We Need God In America Again. Amen??
