Having given the “leaders” of blue states and cities ample time to stop the rioting, arson and looting that’s being ginned up to exploit and dishonor the death of George Floyd, President Trump ordered riot teams from the Federal Bureau of Prisons to Washington, DC, and Miami, and more could be forthcoming if Governors don’t take action. That could include mobilizing thousands of soldiers, which the President has the power to do under the Insurrection Act of 1807.

Naturally, the media are hysterically painting this as an unprecedented abuse of tyrannical power and a declaration of war on the First Amendment (we have a right to riot, burn and loot?) But in fact, the Insurrection Act has been invoked over a dozen times, most recently in 1992 by President George H.W. Bush to stop the Rodney King riots in Los Angeles.

Sadly, that may be necessary because so many Democratic officials are refusing to do their #1 job of protecting public safety. Oregon Gov. Kate Brown is so addlepated with Trump Derangement Syndrome, she actually admitted she refuses to do what’s necessary because “TRUUUUMP!!” She said at a press conference, “Having soldiers on the streets across America is exactly what President Trump wants...Trump wants Governors to deploy the National Guard as a show of force to intimidate the public.”

Monday night, Trump said, “I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation and that is exactly what I will do. I am your president of law and order and an ally of all peaceful protesters.” He said we cannot allow their righteous cries to be drowned out by an angry mob. But, “a number of state and local governments have failed to take necessary action to safeguard their residents. I am taking immediate presidential action to stop the violence and restore security and safety in America. I am mobilizing all available federal resources, civilian and military, to stop the rioting and looting, to end the destruction and arson and to protect the rights of law-abiding Americans, including your Second Amendment rights.”

Speaking of Second Amendment rights, a lot of people, especially in blue states, are waking up to the scary reality that their leaders will do very little to protect them, so they have to protect themselves. Gun sales are exploding, and the price of gun stocks is booming. Former CIA officer Bryan Dean Wright (@BryanDeanWright) tweeted that he talked to a major “Progressive” Democratic fundraiser in Colorado who was spooked by rioters getting near his house, and nobody he knew owned a gun, so he was buying one today (hope there’s not a 10-day waiting period!) Wright said, “The left is losing their base, folks. People prefer order over anarchy.”

I’m sure that many of the people buying guns to protect their homes, families and businesses are African-American, and contrary to the false media stereotype, conservatives are perfectly fine with that, it’s the liberals who are expressing alarm. That’s no surprise: many years ago, when the KKK was terrorizing blacks in the South by burning down their neighborhoods, the NRA was the only constitutional rights organization that defended their right to buy guns to protect themselves. History is merely repeating itself.

Meanwhile, word on social media is that Antifa, having helped torch blue cities, now thinks they’ll move into the suburbs and terrorize people there. That would be the dumbest idea they’ve come up with yet, and that covers a lot of territory. Many people live in the suburbs after fleeing cities because they were sick of depending on noodle-spined leftist mayors who order the police to stand down and who sympathize with criminals over victims. Instead, for protection, they have guns.

Polk County, Florida, Sheriff Grady Judd put it succinctly, when he warned, "The people in Polk County like guns, they have guns, I encourage them to own guns. If you try to break into their homes to steal, to set fires, I'm highly recommending they blow you back out of the house with their guns."

    They need to blow all the thugs brains out that are doing all this stealing and burning instead of just sitting back and watching them, But if it was me they would have had me under the jail.

    Very appropriate for what is going on.
    I appreciate Gov Huckabee for giving the right side of the story & for backing Pres Trump!!

    I would like to see the president use someone like ben carson to hold a 3 day long summit of law abiding protestors from every major city where violence erupted. 1-2 reps from each city, appointed by the mayor or governor. Pay their expenses to Washington d.c and let them talk and propose solutions and articulate what they want. Also how can this be avoided in the future should there be another stupid cop being really stupid again . Will it be seen as politically motivated? Sure. Just like joe biden goinfmg to mr floyd's funeral.

    Governor Huckabee-Thank you for keeping us informed using the truth. I believe the horrible murder of George Floyd should be punished to the upmost degree of the law. But I have some questions hopefully you will be able to answer.
    1. A incident involving calling police for help: I understand Mr. Floyd tried to pass a $20 counterfeit bill. Was the bill actually counterfeit? Where did it come from? Maybe Mr. Floyd did not even know it was counterfeit?? Has anyone even checked this out since this was a starting point to what happened next?
    2. Why when Mr. Floyd was grasping for breath and saying "I can't breathe" didn't the person "recording" this horrible death try to intervene instead of continue to record this horrific scene? Person recording heard the call for help but kept on recording!? Who was this person? Were there others watching this and doing nothing until it was too late? 8 to 9 mins was enough time for someone to call some kind of back up!

    Thank you for your time,
    Paula Holder

    I am sick to death of the whiners who are so very upset with Trump's tweet sand their fragile little lifes being turned upside down by this awful man. These morons have bought into the MSM narrative that Trump is too coarse to be a President. They really do need to learn some prioities like he is trying to rescue all of us from the Lib tyrants. Some times you have to crack eggs to make omelets. Our Education system and absentee parents have brought us to this point. We not only have Obama to thank, I think of GW Bush who I voted for. Why doesn't he support the President the people elected. He is still pouting because Trump pointed out what a loser brother Jeff was. These people were not and are not Republicans. They are globalists and Rinos. We keep talking about the need for people to unite and we see these Rinos sitting it out. They don't know how to spell leadership and every day they sit silent they show why Jeff did not deserve to be elected. He is the low energy bag of wind that Trump exposed him to be. Two Bushes were two too many. I've been wanting to say this for a long time and now I have it off my chest. I'm 80 yrs old and losing faith every day in the that we have an informed and reasoning electorate. Our schools, media, and parenting have brought us to a very dangerous point.

    Detroit had a few bad moments. But the destruction was stopped in its tracks. You see - in 1967- the city was destroyed with burning and looting. When the fires burned out. All that was left was rubble. Detroit was given help to rebuild. They learned - even with help - it takes a LONG time to get back what a few hours took away.

    So today - we have outsides coming in and encouraging destruction . Then they will go home (they are not from that city) The residents will learn the lesson. Looting and rioting encouraged by others will leave a pile of rubble . Even with help- it will take a LONG time to get back what a few hours took away.

    We need a lot more Sheriff's like the one from Polk County Florida, that fully understands citizens rights under are precious, valuable and absolutely necessary 2nd Amendment. And of you live-in some of the Democrat controlled cities and states and actually have even a small amount of common sense and are realistic- get a gun and lots of ammo. If you are already smart enough to own guns, then buy more ammo. Let's hope we beat the Democrats so badly at the polls in November. But between now and then get locked and loaded, especially if you are stuck in a blue state with so many cowardly liberal anti-American mayor's and governors who don't care about the rights and safety of citizens, just the protection of looters, thieves, arsonists and destroyers!!!!

    It's about time something is being done to stop the idiots.
    They ought to have to work as long as it takes to repair the damage they did to private property. There's plenty of pictures taken of them to prove their guilt. It should be done if it takes several years to round the last one up. If they only knew what normal people think of them.

    Once again I thank the Lord for our president.

    What we are witnessing right now is the breakdown of a civilized society. These anarchistic groups should have been stopped years ago. Now they are to well funded, to well connected and bigger than we realize. Social media, twitter and facebook will nothing to stop them from communicating with each other. The Democratic Party in conjunction with their media lap dogs, their big money donors and the endless stream of mindless politicians, protected by walls, armed security and endless paychecks, who think they know something and get all the press coverage they want are the real enemies of a free society. These very people will romp with joy when our economy and country are destroyed all in order to get their way. We no longer have a constitutional republic, we have a political monarchy. Time is running out America, you better make the right choice in November

    I live in Vancouver Washington and am deeply disturbed that many churches accepting the creeping evil.
    I daily pray according to what I see the needs are. The lockdown is causing more problems and many are obedient sheep.
    I foresee it will get darker as the days grow closer to His return.
    It is a spiritual battle that most have not been taught about.
    The forces of Hell have revealed themselves.
    Another repeat of the 60's when Marxist professors attempted to manipulate hippies and the youth to take down the Republic?
    Only God knows. I plan to find another church soon as many churches in the Portland/ Vancouver area teach and promote blind submission to illegal authority out here
    It is a New Age center in the Pacific Northwest

    First we had Russia this and that followed by impeachment and when that didn’t work, “Rona” virus, which was supposed to take most of us out and for which many of our governors, in the name of public health and safety, locked us down for 3 months. Then when truth was starting to come out about Michael Flynn, suddenly these thugs are hired to burn down cities across the nation. One thing all of these people behind these extreme wrong doings haven’t considered, they are taking on the very person of Jesus, who created the universe. Oh yes, they will say they don’t believe in Him, but that doesn’t mean He doesn’t exist, it just means they choose not to believe. But the real interesting thing about this, they picked a fight with the wrong God! He might just be at the end of His patience. They haven’t seen anything yet! Maybe they can read all about it in Revelation!

    I think it's treasonous for the "leaders" of our cities and states to not take whatever action is necessary to stop these rioters and looters. I support our President in whatever he does in this matter.

    Our President should send in the Marines, just like George Washington did during the Whiskey Rebellion. Then, we should try every single one of the Antifa rioters as enemy combatants, and arrest every democrat sympathizer politician and media personality with aiding and abetting sedition.

    Hi Governor-I am so grateful we have a President who understands that for a nation to survive there must be law and order. But I am grieved to hear some well known pastors who have tv ministries coming out to condemn the President for his "language". I suppose they would be just fine with letting the violence continue until there is nothing left to burn. And there is the verse in Romans 13 regarding the enforcement of governmental laws by the authority, so I believe it is our President who is doing what not only is his responsibility as the leader of our nation, but also his scripture ordained responsibility as well.

    Gov Huckabee: WE ALL KNOW WHAT POLITICAL PARTY IS REALLY BEHIND THE RIOTS AND LOOTING. They're stoking the flames that are making us ALL unsafe and at the same time, they're trying to take everyone's guns away. Also, we know the perpetrator was a bad cop, but we still don't know for sure if he was racially motivated, or not. For all we know at this time, he'd treat everyone the same. We need more background info on him to determine his motivations. Rush Limbaugh correctly stated that: "We may not have even heard about this incident if the guy had been white. Rooting out bad cops is a trans-racial concern.
