August 9, 2019

Unlike many people in the media and DC political bubbles, I try to stay in touch with what Americans who don’t talk for a living are thinking.  And I’m definitely getting the sense that the liberal media outlets and Democrat politicians have greatly overplayed their hand with this whole “Trump is a racist white supremacist who hates brown people and he and his supporters are responsible for all mass shootings, including the one committed by a socialist Elizabeth Warren supporter” crusade. 

(FYI: Conservative comedian and commentator Mark Dice has put together a compilation video of Trump denouncing racism, white supremacy and the Klan, with clips stretching all the way back to 2000.  During that same year, Joe Biden was still proudly serving in the Senate alongside Democratic Party elder statesman and former “Exalted Cyclops” of the KKK, Robert Byrd, who would remain in office until his death in 2010):  )

The first regular Americans who got a chance to appear on a camera that “Beto” or Cory wasn’t hogging were the San Antonio residents who got doxed by Rep. Joaquin Castro and exposed to possible violence from the unhinged left for donating to Trump’s campaign.  They were understandably furious.  Some had also donated to Castro and his brother, Julian (probably just business owners covering all bets), but I’m sure that won’t ever happen again. They’re going to remember this in San Antonio longer than they remember the Alamo. Anyone thinking of challenging Castro for his House seat might want to file now and avoid the rush.

Next, we heard from the victims of the shooters and their families.  The hotheads were screaming that Trump shouldn’t visit El Paso and Dayton (according to the obviously focus-group-tested phrase of the day, he had “blood on his hands.”) Trump ignored them and did the right thing anyway.  While they tried to gin up hatred and division for political advantage, he was doing what Presidents are supposed to do: comforting the victims and attempting to heal and reassure the nation.  And surprise!  The people he came to visit were grateful.  In fact, they remarked that the Trump they met surprised them by being nothing like the ogre depicted in the media (this theme has been repeated many times over the past couple of years by people who meet Trump in person.)

And I already told you how liberals are fuming because some Trump supporters staged a volunteer clean-up in Rep. Elijah Cummings’ Baltimore district, the one that Trump was branded as a racist and “white supremacist” for calling crime-ridden and rat-infested, even though everyone knows that it is.  But the residents not only welcomed and thanked the volunteers, many went on camera to say Trump’s comments weren’t racist, and they appreciated someone in power finally calling out Baltimore’s Democratic government for ignoring their problems for so long.

And now, we know why Trump called out Cummings on the condition of his district, and it wasn’t about racism or political sniping.  He was asked to do it by retired NFL player Jack Brewer, who is black.  Brewer says he had a chance to meet Trump in July and “I told him please call out Elijah Cummings and Baltimore.” Brewer said he’d just left Baltimore, where he’d seen what kids were growing up in, “and the reason why is because their politicians, their political leaders, are going out and they’re worrying about the issues that raise them money…and that is not the poor, black kid.”  He pointed out that on the same weekend as the El Paso and Dayton shootings, a total of 51 people were shot in Chicago and Baltimore, “and no one says anything.”

That’s because the politicians who are responsible for those cities would rather attack people who point out the problems than do anything to fix them.

After two years of hearing that Trump isn’t “presidential,” this week, he not only appeared presidential, but his opponents appeared so unpresidential that they made him look like Abe Lincoln – another Republican whom Democrats of the time hated and ridiculed as unfit to be President.

    I enjoy reading your articles and breathing in the fresh air that they bring vs the stench and biased hatred of the far left. I am glad that you are in our president's corner and presenting clearly the way things as they are vs the distortions presented to the American people by the mainstream media. Great article on the facts of his visits to these cities. Keep up the good work, You and Sarah rock!

    I've found that people that don't like President Trump only know what they have heard from the main stream media an are not smart enough to go back and look at everything he said or did! If they hear something bad they just assume it is true. Great read! Thank you!

    Hopefully all the regular folks who appreciated President Trump's visits (or, remarks in the case of Baltimore) get the word out to all the other regular folks who might get their "news" from the msm or other leftist/socialist organizations that President Trump ISN'T all that the left tries to make us think he is. Let other regular folks know it's okay to not follow the socialist regime, to be able to proudly admit to being a conservative, to be able to stand up to those who try to shout you down or shame you for being one.

    This report is right on. It actually reports the truth. Something the media and most democrats know very little about. Thanks, keep up the good work.

    I love the comment by one subscriber with her thoughts on imagining one of the Democratic "zombies" becoming president. I would add that any voter thinking of pulling the lever for any of these misfits had better picture that person as Commander in Chief. Imagine Warren, Kamella, Bernie or any other of these incompetent dingbats dealing with Putin, the Ayatolla, Kim Un, etc. One of the biggest requirements of a President is commanding our troops and keeping the military in a state of readiness. Each time a Dem is elected they gut the military and apologize for our country being strong. Why this lesson is never learned by our populace is mind boggling to me. It's like the definition of insanity, doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Dems can't run the economy, can't run the military, can't manage immigration, can't run health care, can't run the cities where they are mayors, can't run congress (Pelosi, Schumer) or anything else they touch. People have to wake up soon, but I am not going to hold my breath.

    It seems to me if far left liberal opposition is going to be mounted, wealthy opposition needs to buy/create a mass media outlet that will be a new addition to the Big 3 as a television station. Fox is already caving, and I don't believe the startups will get to make a dent unless they are massively funded and placed center stage. Reply to this please, Mr. Huckabee! Thank you

    Thank you Mike, for supporting Trump. It’s refreshing to hear common sense and opinions being expressed without the vitriol that one gets in the mainstream media. I was a lifelong Democrat who didn’t pay attention to politics. I tuned in in 2016 because I was concerned about candidate Trump and his outrageous comments, but he quickly earned my respect. I quickly realized that the Democrats no longer represented me or our American heritage. Their assaults upon the Constitution frighten me. Trump 2020!

    I agree with the comments of Ben Wilson, David Womer, and others.
    And I think that a lot of people ARE coming to understand that President Trump is a man who loves America and wants all Americans to prosper.
    I've talked to people who have been Democrats their whole lives, and they see the media bias and political b.s. on the left.
    There is hope--I can't imagine the mess this country would be in if one of those zombies running for the Democrat nomination actually won.

    Dear Governor, It is so nice to read truth and get further truth as to what prompted President Trumps comments. I am so tired of the news media trying to blaming Trump for everything. Please continue with your wonderful insights. As for Baltimore as the conditions the people on the east side lived in it was that way back in the early 1970s when her visiting fort Mchenry. The hopelessness we saw among the residents was heart breaking. I am so sorry that these conditions are still there. Praying for the East side residents of Baltimore. May God raise up army to help improve to better their lives and may the corrupt politicians be voted out of office, I don't care what party they are in these people deserve public servants who are "true servants" of the people!

    Governor keep reporting the truth. Keep ferreting out the lies. Be that “steady drip” voice of reason and maybe, just maybe, someone on the left with half a brain still able to think critically, might finally connect “the dots.” This attack on our culture and truth and those of us who are Christ followers is definitely not for the faint of heart! But in the end and in God’s perfect timing, we win. Don’t give up!

    Trump has THE courage to speak up for the black communities as well as the needy communities, black or white! Trump loves ALL Americans!

    I am so sick of the liberal media and democrats trashing Trump. They twist his words to try to make him look bad and these snowflakes believe them. Trump is doing a great job of trying to get America back on the right track but Obama and the judges, along with all the resistance groups are blocking him on a lot of things. Just think if these people would work with him a lot of wonderful things could get done and America would be a lot better place. I have never seen in my life so much hate as the democrats have for Trump. I remember Hillary said if he didn't accept the results of the election he was unpatriotic. Hillary has never accepted the results and neither has the democrat party. The democrats are trying to make this a socialist godless country and God help us if they ever get power back. Keep up the good work and keep us informed.

    Okay Huckabee, this comment is in response to your Woodstock commentary.
    I saw nowhere else to leave it.
    So, Woodstock. I was there. Were you? You sound very jaded about the attendees and the entire event. It sounds like you really don’t know what you are talking about so I have to assume you were not. You were just having fun with words I imagine, as you have a tendency to do. This does make your commentaries enjoyable, but this time? Not so much.
    At Woodstock we parked 22 miles away and had a blast either walking or jumping onto someone’s car for a free ride. No one cared and people were so accommodating. That attitude was everywhere. While I cannot speak for the organizers (or lack of), the attendees were not all drugged out and stoned. At least no more than what occurs today and you did not find others drugging your drinks or selling you toxic-laden drugs or pot. No, we were purists in a sense and while some would say Woodstock ushered in a drug generation, it also ushered in a back-to-nature generation.
    I am not referring here to getting naked. Considering the vast amount of people there, nakedness was a pretty rare occurrence. In fact, I was wayyy in the back on the hill, and we all were talking about the ONE chowderhead up in front with no clothes on digging the music. We all figured he wasn’t harming anyone, so no one seemed to care.
    By back to nature, what I do mean is the growing popularity of organic and more holistic approaches to living, which I still abide by to this day and thankfully our culture is finally embracing. Why pollute the earth when you can care for it? Isn’t that what God asked us to do?
    Have I turned into a deadbeat druggie? Not at all. I have been a professional for decades, do not do drugs, smoke, or smoke that other stuff, nor do I support it’s legalization, and I rarely drink.
    I do not support government interference concerning Global Warming- er, excuse, Climate Change, am a strong proponent of gun rights, and am in fact a pretty conservative chick! That’s one reason I love you so much and enjoy reading your column.
    But here, Mr. Mike, no, you have it wrong.
    In spite of all the organizational issues, Woodstock attendees managed to achieve a level far above just tolerance for one another. It truly was a time of peace and love. And isn’t that what all humanity is crying for today? Or at any time for that matter. Put half a million people together and see if that can happen again. Factor in the rain and it’s downright amazing. By the time the rain came, the food stands were closed as they ran out of food. And I was hungry with nothing to eat! But all one had to do was speak up and others would share what they had. So I did and had my fill. When the sandwiches fell from the sky, a lot of them never even got eaten because people were sharing what they had.
    The vibe was one of straight enjoyment, respecting and honoring your neighbor and just plain digging the music.
    Judging from your commentary, Mr. Mike, you must have been part of “the establishment” who never understood or cared for “hippies” and just lumped them all into one big bowl of free sex and drugs, and apparently still do. That saddens me. But I’ll get over it.
    I am glad I experienced Woodstock. It gives me hope that us humans at some point can truly learn to love one another.

    The demonic induced hatred ,that has some of my neighbors and family blind to reason, can only be exorcised with prayer and fasting. Invoking the name of Jesus Christ at least seeds their souls. I was the lost. So there is hope for ALL.

    Contrary to many liberals who have to tell the world everything that is on their mind, whether or not we care to know it, conservatives have by and large kept their views close to the vest until it is election time, and then let people know what they think with their votes. That's why the polls consistently get it wrong. They think that because conservatives aren't out demanding others think like them or else pay a price, that they agree with the nonsense liberals are throwing out there.

    I for one am more than tired of watching the media, not report the news, but rather try to create it, with their spin, deceit, and avoiding anything that doesn't agree with their narrative.

    To be honest, I really wish Trump would tweet far less and use his time to present well reasoned arguments with information/facts that cannot be disputed by the left. At times I do worry the left will take over the White House as a result of the tone of his tweets. But I also pray that there are enough voters out there, conservative, independents, and even some moderate democrats whose eyes have been wide open for the past almost 3 years and know exactly what the liberal playbook has been all about. If that happens and they vote, then he will serve another 4 years.

    The #1 problem in US today is the uncontrolled hatred of the Democrats.
    The #2 problem is that the hate filled Democrats may get in power and open the borders and take away tax cuts by Trump and instill Medicare for all.
    I volunteered in our County GOP booth at out county fair in MN. These were the concerns as listed by the people that stopped by our booth to give their opinion.

    Thank you for your comments. I have shared them with my friends who don't have computers. They get their news from TV and I have listen to their comments and decided to educate them.
    You said in one of your news letters the culture is the problem. I agree. We need Church men in all faiths to start telling their people they need to change their ways and get back to living the golden rule and loving their neighbors. They need to practice the virtues of faith, hope and charity. Most of all obeying the commandments that the good Lord gave us, that teaches us how to live in community. The evil we are experiencing is a sign we need to repent and pray.

    I heard Trump speak today about possible new gun laws while working with Pelosi and Schummer. Please tell him to respect the conservatives and the NRA. Rush acted a little concerned about Trump's comments. Now we all know Trump often talks a good line but then backs down during negotiations. However, he went along with Nancy regarding the spending bill, so I'm fearful he will do it again. As Rush said today, you cannot compromise with the House liberals, because they won't work with you unless it is solely for their benefit. I beg Trump to only agree with a few minor improvements in mental screening, but otherwise, please tell him not to go along to get along. I've heard a good number of conservatives on talk shows today say that this would be the tipping point in voting Trump again. All I hear after these mass shootings is that nothing could have prevented them, in spite of current gun legislation. So why create more? sigh...Thank you for this comment page.
