TAKE THAT, STATUE TOPPLERS

By Mike Huckabee

Here's President Trump’s official Columbus Day proclamation, in which he states that Americans “embrace the same optimism that led Christopher Columbus to discover the New World. We inherit that optimism, along with the legacy of American heroes who blazed the trails, settled a continent, tamed the wilderness, and built the single-greatest nation the world has ever seen.” He also directs that “the flag of the United States be displayed on all public buildings on the appointed day in honor of our diverse history and all who have contributed to shaping this Nation.”

JOE BIDEN'S RECENT GAFFES

By Mike Huckabee

Having spent plenty of time on the campaign trail myself, going without sleep and giving the same speech 20 times a day, I cut politicians a lot of slack when it comes to slips of the tongue. Everybody commits mouth fumbles, but most people don’t have the media, Twitter and political opponents to turn every one of them into a federal case.

Granted, Joe Biden does make a LOT more of them than most politicians. But I wasn’t even planning to mention his recent gaffe, “You’re trying your breast, but it never feels like enough,” despite the obvious subtext. I wasn’t even going to mention how he took off his mask to cough into his hand. I was just startled to see him remove his mask at all. It’s become such a permanent feature of his face that he’s now like the Lone Ranger. Or as his son Hunter must think of him, the Loan Arranger.

But both of those gaffes are part of this three-fer round-up, and I definitely want to comment on the third. That was where he called for a $15 million minimum wage.

Sure, Joe may have misread the Teleprompter, but let’s not be too hasty to dismiss the idea! As I’ve pointed out many times before, if you’re going to be like many Democrats and insist that wages should be set by the government with zero regard for market forces in determining the value of labor – and if you don't care how many businesses or entry level jobs your generosity with other people’s money destroys (as it has in places like San Francisco, Seattle and New York that artificially raised the wage above what businesses are able to pay and survive) – then why stop at $15 an hour?

I've always said, "Why not $25 an hour? Or $40 an hour?" But heck, why not think really big like Joe and make it $15 million an hour? It’s just as out of touch with market realities as what the Dems are actually proposing, only to a greater degree. And it’s like the old joke about the man selling apples for $5 million each. A passerby said, “You won’t sell many apples at that price!” He replied, “I only have to sell one.”

So I say let's try the Joe Biden $15 million-an-hour minimum wage! It would kill every job in America, but think of how rich we'd all be if it took the economy just one hour to collapse!

THREE WEEKS OUT, MOST VOTERS STILL IN THE DARK

By Mike Huckabee

We’re one day closer to Election Day --- now just three weeks out --- and most voters are still wearing blindfolds, clueless on a variety of issues. To a large extent, it’s because information is being hidden from them.

As reported yesterday, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won’t even answer questions about what they plan to do in office, notably whether they’ll pack the Supreme Court –- a prospect that used to horrify even the most diehard Democrats. Attorney General Barr has told us not to expect U.S. Attorney John Durham’s report before the election is over, and it seems voters won’t even see an interim report. My patience has certainly worn thin. Lawmakers, even some Republicans, are dragging out the search for evidence that implicates Biden and his cohorts in potentially criminal behavior.

Voters tend to make their choices based on economic issues and other things that directly affect them, so why are the results of these investigations important now? Because if Trump loses, those same people will be right back in place, ending the investigations and cementing their power in a variety of ways. Voters deserve to know if their candidates are criminals. Heck, some in the middle who are currently leaning left might even care.

As we’ve reported, social media also play a huge role in hiding information. The Tweet Police at Twitter are blocking tweets that provide evidence of ongoing voter fraud with mail-in ballots. They even “play doctor,” critiquing and blocking President Trump’s tweets about coronavirus, comments that might be pretty darned informative considering what he’s personally been through. The mainstream media enforce the Democrat narrative as well, in part by hiding violence infecting those “peaceful protests” in leftist-run cities.

These are just a few examples. Their strategy is to HIDE EVERYTHING POSSIBLE UNTIL AFTER THE ELECTION.

Speaking of hiding, we have an update on what I reported yesterday, about CIA Director Gina Haspel working to protect her agency from oversight at all costs. She received a letter last Wednesday from Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, ordering her to comply with a number of oversight requests regarding “Crossfire Hurricane” that they’d sent her in July. (July!) But she’s blown it off.

An excerpt from their letter to Haspel reads, “The American people have a right to know the full extent of official action taken by federal officials during the 2016 campaign, the presidential transition, and into the Trump administration...Unfortunately, many of the puzzle pieces remain hidden, and some of the information rests within your agency.”

Haspel was given until October 9 to comply with their requests. It’s now October 13. As reported earlier in THE FEDERALIST, Haspel is personally setting up the roadblocks. To protect her position, she’s pulling for Biden to win and all the Old Guard to resume their places in The Swamp.

As then-CIA Director John Brennan’s hand-picked station chief in London, Haspel was in the perfect spot to know what was going on with former MI-6 agent Christopher Steele and whatever was being choreographed across-the-pond to create the phony “Trump/Russia” narrative. But she’s still hiding it.

Ironically, Haspel said this during her confirmation hearing for CIA director in 2018: “As both a career intelligence officer and as an American citizen, I am a strong believer in the importance of oversight [and accountability]...I will uphold the Agency’s obligations to Congress and ensure that oversight works on behalf of the American people.”

What a hoot. The President should order her to respond fully to all inquiries immediately or else collect her things and be escorted out of the building. And how long does it take to prepare a subpoena?

So, why is all this important right now? Haven’t most people already decided which candidate to vote for? Yes, they have. In fact, many have voted already, as the DNC has been pushing them to VOTE EARLY! (The old saying “vote early and vote often” might not be much of a joke this year.) But Biden’s support is not what you’d call enthusiastic; many might swing away if they knew more: his rapidly deteriorating mental condition, his repeated and demonstrable lies, the radical leftists pulling his strings, his disrespect for voters, and, yes, his scandals, including alleged criminal conduct. The Democrat leadership knows that the sooner voters cast their ballots, the less likely they are to be operating on any of this information when they do.

Another investigation that hasn’t seen resolution before the election (and absolutely will end if the Democrats get back in power) is that of the DNC “hacks” that were supposedly done by the Russians. This was the start of the whole @#$% “Russia Russia Russia!” obsession we were subjected to for four years. Incredibly, some Biden supporters STILL believe that Trump was and is an agent of Vladimir Putin, and their votes will reflect that lie.

It would come as a surprise to most voters that there isn’t even any evidence that Russia hacked the DNC. You and I now know this was a story concocted by Hillary Clinton, apparently with help from one of her foreign policy advisers, to distract from her own email scandal. Recall that the cybersecurity company that DNC/Hillary law firm Perkins Coie hired to examine its servers and that launched the hacking allegation against Russia in 2016 was a firm called CrowdStrike, which is no little mom-and-pop.

CrowdStrike never transferred custody of the servers to the FBI but gave them reports, which were later cited by both the FBI and the special counsel. As RealClear Investigations writes, “During that fateful July 2019 phone call that would later trigger impeachment proceedings, Trump asked Ukraine’s [president] to scrutinize CrowdStrike’s role in the DNC server breach, suggesting that the company may have been involved in hiding the real perpetrators.” And why shouldn’t the President suspect them? After all, IT WAS HILLARY WHO HIRED THEM.

If you've been following the details, here’s the latest on CrowdStrike. By the way, the reason CrowdStrike is in the news today is that according to recent financial disclosure filings, Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul have just invested up to $1 million in CrowdStrike Holdings.

BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY

    CrowdStrike Holdings...that explains a lot regarding Pelosi's reasons to "impeach" our President! Another DIM one to put in an orange jumpsuit! Maybe Nancy's suit needs to be peach, instead, with a coordinating mask!

    Are you ready to throw in the towel and just say Bill Bar I didn’t want to believe it but you’re part of the swamp?
    All the experts are saying there is enough evidence to convict multiple swamp dwellers...
    Bar is deep state and is holding out until the dems successful steal the election and then Harris/Biden get their turn to fleece the tax payer.

    Is Trump losing senior votes?
    How about taking a look at SS? We could use a cost of living raise! 10% to 25%! Always a year behind...we call it "loss of buying power". Take the raise out of Congress budget! (They have been stealing it....oops borrowing it ??)

    I personally think the American people are being silent about the election. They will make their voices heard at the voting booths. Very little information was given by HRC in 2016. People didn't vote for her. I truly believe that the same will apply in this election. No -info Joe will get to stay in his bunker the rest of his days.

    Newt Gingrich stated on Fox News Monday night that the election results would be 70-30 Trump-Biden. I agree wholeheartedly! My own guess was 75-25 T-B.

    The American people want to move forward out of this crisis. Not stay in it. And certainly do not want to go backwards from it. Trump-Pence all the way!!!

    They have the momentum to move us forward and ahead with a mighty vengeance! The Lord is on their/our side!!! What shall we fear what man can do to us?

    I endured some time listening to the Democratic Confirmation mob it is evident why they can not pass a bill that would make America Great, the reason, it would require an attitude that did not include anti American beliefs. The Confirmation is to have the candidate confirm it will Judge on the basis of the Constitution not insurance policies or companies but the legality of the Insurance. The democrats are like the the carpenter that keeps hitting its thumb or fingers with a hammer causing injury to itself time after time. During the hearing they accuse the candidate of being untruthful and doing dirty work for the Administration. The word I like to describe the Dems is Dastardly and nothing positive will come from them. I recognize the term to describe them as the Do Nothing Party it has Biden's disease always on the wrong side of every issue if you are a REAL AMERICAN>

    After the election, a LOT of "fence sitters" need to "walk the plank", or be shoved overboard, starting with Wray, Haspel, Esper, Fauci, even Barr, as they've all essentially shown their true colors. Then a thorough house-cleaning of their underlings, career civil service apparatchiks of the Deep State, must be undertaken with resolve to root out, once and for all, their attitude of we know what's better for the system, and us. The system is infested with termites, hollowing it out, leaving rotten deadwood, that has to removed. Finally, ALL those guilty of treachery, and yes, treason, MUST be held FULLY accountable to the maximum extent allowable under the law, including capital punishment, if deemed appropriate. It matters not what position they formerly held; they betrayed it, the country, and the oath they swore to uphold the Constitution. They must be made a stark example of, to deter this kind of thing from ever being contemplated, let alone attempted, EVER again. One simply must not shrink from doing one's duty, as Barr and Durham are now doing.

    I am a true American and served my country in the military. I might not agree with everything President Trump says but I will not vote for socialism or communism. I was born free and I will leave this world a free person. Kamala Harris is big trouble for our country. She will be the President, not Biden.

    LOL! Hey, Mike, I'm surprised that 'you' don't have writer's cramp from pumping out all your good info daily and also don't have more "gaffes" in doing so. It has to put a strain on your 'proofreaders.' I think this was meant as a 'Joe gaffe' but it doesn't quite read that way: "“You’re trying your breast,...." or did ole 'Shotgun Joe' actually say that? I just can't listen to the guy to know what he says, and only get his gaffe montages from our FOX friends!

    I am ahead of you about my patience wearing thin with the LONG overdue DOJ report concerning the 3d World Attempt to prevent a Trump presidency or the coup exercise attempting to remove our elected president, as in I have NO patience left!

    This I simply call Déjà Vu, "Their strategy is to HIDE EVERYTHING POSSIBLE UNTIL AFTER THE ELECTION." How many agencies are involved this time in 'protecting Biden?' The same number that has kept the 'criminal' Clinton out of jail, and continues to do so?

    Sadly, I expect no better from our vaunted (not) government. I suggest a new saying about power corrupting: 'Power Corrupts, but *UNEQUAL* JUSTICE UNDER LAW Corrupts COMPLETELY!'
