There’s a strong (and long overdue) trend for replacing China as the supplier of US goods.
Vietnam has been the major Asian beneficiary of the moving of supply sources out of China, but I’m glad to see that our ally Taiwan is second. However, for goods used by Americans (particularly life-and-death necessities such as medicines), how about moving those manufacturing jobs back here, where we can keep an eye on them?
MY NEW BOOK

- reveals how attacks on Christianity are part of the political agenda of Liberals
- provides a clear understanding of capitalism and how free markets benefit all people

- unmask the efforts of the liberal Left to subvert the power and relevance of the Constitution
- exposes the current corruption in government and culture

America faces a war of values that will determine its future and likely decide if it will continue as a great nation on the world stage. Mike Huckabee and Steve Feazel sounds a needed alarm to Christians and conservatives to answer the call to action and push back against the forces that desire to move America from its heritage and founding principles. It is time for God's people to take an active role in the political arena, not with violence, but with votes and voices that proclaim and defend the values that made our nation the brightest light of freedom the world has ever known.
This is absolutely unbelievable, but the full DC Court of Appeals ruled Monday against dismissing the case against Michael Flynn, sending it back to out-of-control partisan Judge Emmet Sullivan, who is refusing to end the trial even after the Department of Justice chose to drop the charges. I’m beginning to wonder if there will ever be an end to the Kafkaesque nightmare to which Flynn has been subjected by the criminal behavior of certain elements inside the Obama FBI and DOJ.
Sullivan was already overruled by a 2-1 panel of the court, but this victory allows him to keep persecuting a defendant whom even the prosecutors now admit did nothing wrong. Two of the judges issued a scathing dissent, writing, “By allowing the district court to scrutinize ‘the reasoning and motives’ of the Department of Justice…the majority ducks our obligation to correct judicial usurpations of executive power and leaves Flynn to twist in the wind while the district court pursues a prosecution without a prosecutor.”
I’ve long suspected that Sullivan’s real motivation has zero to do with justice and everything to do with dragging this out as long as possible, to inflict political damage on Trump up through the election, and to keep it going in hopes that Biden will be elected, the charges will be reinstated, and the real criminals will get away with it. There’s one way to insure that doesn’t happen, and that is to reelect Trump and put Republicans back in charge of the House and in a stronger majority in the Senate. Without a Senate majority, they can’t impeach a judge, no matter how much he richly deserves it.
Here’s something that would get wall-to-wall “SCANDAL!!!” coverage if Trump had done it: the radical Antifa/BLM thug who is suspected of murdering a Trump supporter in Portland was arrested in July for being involved in a riot where he was found to be carrying a knife and an illegally possessed loaded firearm. So why was he still walking around loose to murder people? Because just like with all the other “peaceful protesters” who’ve been arrested, the DA decided to let him go and not pursue any charges.
This is what cities across America are suffering, due to the elections of far-left, usually Soros-backed district attorneys whose idea of “justice reform” is not to prosecute criminals. Voila! The crime rate immediately drops! All you have to do is legalize crime!
But before these DA’s started simply releasing violent rioters, a number of prominent sports and entertainment figures and liberal politicians were donating to and promoting a fund to bail them out so they could keep on rioting and looting (although not in THEIR neighborhoods, Heaven forbid!) One of them was Kamala Harris. Thirteen members of Biden’s campaign staff also contributed to the fund to bail out participants in the riots that they’re now trying to blame on Trump.
If he's elected, Joe Biden had better not be too quick to destroy the fossil fuel industry. He’s going to need at least a little oil to keep the revolving doors on the jails spinning freely.
AINSWORTH: THE GOV.'S NEW BOOK IS OUT TODAY
By Laura Ainsworth
Offhand, I can think of three “Cs” that are really bad for America: communism, corruption, and crime, all three of which are currently being excused and even promoted by the left. In fact, we talk a lot about those three “Cs” often, right here. But Gov. Huckabee has a great new book –- just out –- that’s written from the positive perspective we need more than ever now. Co-authored by Steve Feazel, it’s about the three “Cs” that made America GREAT and must be protected at all costs.
Do you know what they are? Here’s a clue: the title of the book is THE THREE Cs THAT MADE AMERICA GREAT: CHRISTIANITY, CAPITALISM, AND THE CONSTITUTION.
This is the right book at the right time, because America really is in a fight for its soul right now. All three “Cs” are under relentless attack. The book was written as a call to action for Christians and conservatives who look around and can’t believe what they see. This is not a time to be shocked into paralysis but to take an active role in the political arena, to push back against the forces that are trying to tear America away from its founding principles and its heritage. Our nation has been the brightest light of freedom the world has ever known, and it’s time to make that light shine again.
On his weekend TBN show, Gov. Huckabee was freshly inspired about what makes America great after watching Trump’s convention speech from the White House lawn. In his monologue, he talked about the new book as “a fact-filled reminder of the underpinnings of America and its origins,” saying the “leftist loons” who are educating our kids are responsible for their lack of knowledge, as these people are clueless about the role played by Judeo-Christian values in our launch as a new nation. This monologue focused on the first “C,” Christianity.
The Gov. said he’s aware that not all the founders were devout Christians, but stressed that even the less pious were aware “that liberty only lives when people self-govern, and that’s because of the moral code written onto the tablets of our hearts by our Creator.”
People who follow the word of God don’t need to look to an authoritarian government to worship, he explained, “because then you’re free from the bonds of self-centered behavior.”
The Gov. also offered some surprising history I wasn’t aware of, saying that today's secular Ivy League universities generally have their origins in schools devoted to religious instruction. For example, Harvard University was named for a young minister, John Harvard, who died at only 31. So far, a statue of him, seated and holding a Bible, still graces the campus, unless some numb-skulled anarchist has pulled it down.
And did you know Harvard students were once required to read Scripture twice daily and be ready to “give evidence of proficiency of their knowledge of the Bible”? Me, neither. An early school motto was “Truth for Christ and the Church.” Yale students, as well, were required “to live according to the rules of God’s word.” Princeton has a similar religious legacy; I wonder how many students can translate its Latin slogan, “Under the protection of God she flourishes.” How is THAT still on their flag? (I also wonder why they necessarily assume an institution of higher learning would use the pronoun “she” –- maybe it would prefer “xi.”)
Did you know that in 1782, the Continental Congress actually printed Bibles to give to inhabitants of the United States? They thought the values taught in the Bible were essential to the emerging nation. I thought I knew my American history pretty darn well, but this was news to me.
John Jay, our nation’s first Supreme Court justice and obviously one of the founders who WERE very devout, referred to America as “a Christian nation” and said we should “select and prefer Christians” as our leaders. Didn’t know that, either! (Of course, that didn’t and shouldn’t carry force of law; it was just his view.) Gov. Huckabee did say this book would make liberals’ heads explode; I think the part about John Jay might be where that happens.
Later in the Gov.’s show, co-author Steve Feazel sat for an interview. (He joked that Sarah Sanders wasn’t available to co-author his book with him, so he’d had to call Huckabee. He and the Gov. did have a mutual friend but had not met prior to this project.)
This is going to be the book to give your liberal friends --- especially the ones with kids in school --- who just have no clue about the founding of our nation, the “underpinnings,” as the Gov. put it.
Not one to just be “preaching to the choir,” I’d like to add something for the agnostics and even atheists who might be seeing this. You should read this book, too. Even those of us who aren’t as devout as John Jay and some of the other founders should not allow ourselves to be in denial about the role Judeo-Christian values played in the formation of America. That understanding of right and wrong is basic –- it’s written into our law and forms the basis of a society being able to live together, whether or not everyone goes to church or even believes in God. (Obviously, people are not able to live together peaceably in our cities right now, and this is because the traditional moral code is out the window.) Whether or not one believes that God literally gave us natural law or handed Moses the Ten Commandments on stone tablets, we have to treat the Constitution and our system of justice with that same level of reverence if our nation is to endure. The republic itself, our freedom, and the system on which it rests must be treated as sacred. We seem to be far away from that as a nation right now.
Excellent article by Dennis Prager on how the COVID-19 lockdowns have gone from being a mistake born of hysteria to being a crime that’s destroying businesses and people’s lives and livelihoods, for no other reason than to impose the irrational dictates of power-mad politicians.
On that same subject, a new British government study claims that for every three COVID-19 deaths in the UK, the lockdown caused another two deaths. From March 1 to May 1, they estimate that 16,000 excess deaths were caused by things such as people not being able to keep medical appointments for other problems.
And speaking of hysterical responses to the Chinese virus, here’s yet another study, this time from Belgium, showing that low-dosage Hydroxychloroquine therapy significantly reduced mortality of COVID-19 patients.
