I thought I was really busy, but I have nothing on this guy: Slidell, Louisiana, Police posted on Facebook that they pulled over a driver for having an expired license plate. He replied, “Sorry, officer. I’ve been busy lately and totally forgot to renew my vehicle registration. I will take care of it as soon as I get home.”

https://q13fox.com/2020/03/09/a-driver-was-pulled-over-with-expired-1997-license-plate-tags-he-says-hes-been-busy/

His license plate had expired in 1997, nearly 23 years ago.

Hey, time flies when you’re really busy!

Tweet of the Day! Greg Gutfeld responds to Bernie Sanders declaring that “once a vaccine for coronavirus is developed, it should be free.” You know, like…everything else you need.

------------------------------------------

I mentioned yesterday in a piece about concern over Joe Biden’s ever-more-frequent “gaffes” that I did not include the clip of him saying, “We can only reelect Donald Trump,” because that was taken out of context. Unfortunately, some other conservative sources were fooled by it and retweeted it, including Trump communications director Dan Scavino, who was reposted by Trump.

While Scavino argued that nobody would seriously believe Biden was endorsing Trump, the Biden campaign complained to Twitter, which branded it as “manipulated media.” This is the first time that a major party candidate has been officially cited for spreading “fake news,” which I’m sure the left feels very smug about. But they might have tripped themselves up by making that complaint.

Have you ever heard of the “Streisand Effect”? Years ago, Barbra Streisand made a big deal about a photographer invading her privacy by taking an aerial photo of her estate. If she hadn’t said anything, most people never would have seen the photo. But her complaint drew so much publicity that everyone saw the picture and learned exactly where she lived. This may be what the Biden people are feeling now, since their complaint to Twitter about Trump posting a misleading video of Biden is bringing sudden attention to all the false and misleading videos and quotes that their side has thrown at Trump and that the media have let them slide by on.

The Trump campaign is now demanding that Twitter enforce its new rigid standards for political posts equally on the Biden campaign, citing at least three videos they've posted that are deceptively edited to make it appear that Trump said things he never said, such as the coronavirus is a hoax, or there were “very fine people” on the side of the white supremacists in Charlottesville. That last one is so slanderously false that even factcheck.org admitted it was baseless.

https://www.factcheck.org/2020/02/trump-has-condemned-white-supremacists/

The Biden campaign may rue the day that it demanded Twitter bar any false or misleading videos about politicians because I’ve been listening to the Democrats’ policy ideas for nearly a year now, and it seems to me that slandering their opponents is about all they’ve got. In fact, Joe Biden actually claimed that Trump’s “very fine people” quote was the reason he decided to run for President: he just had to save America from that divisive racist who thinks that neo-Nazis are very fine people.

So now that this is all out in the open, and Twitter suddenly cares about the truth, Trump’s people should remove that misleading video, and Biden’s people should remove ALL their misleading anti-Trump videos...and Joe Biden should say, “Well, that’s very different! Never mind…” and quit the race and go home.

---------------------------------

Latest victim of the party of tolerance and diversity: Rep. Elise Stefanik, who did a brilliant job of defending the President during Adam Schiff’s impeachment circus.

https://www.westernjournal.com/rising-gop-star-shares-nasty-note-left-car-former-top-dem-implies-deserved/

Of course, any idiot with a pen and second grade-level literacy can write a nasty note and leave it on someone’s car. But it takes a special kind of immature partisan sickness to be a former DNC head and current state Governor like Vermont’s Howard Dean and defend the anonymous jerk while suggesting that Rep. Stefanik deserves to be harassed for not sharing his political views.

By the way, as the article at the link suggests, since Elizabeth Warren supporters are blaming her loss on sexism (even though 70% of female Democratic primary voters in her own home state of Massachusetts rejected her), couldn’t you make an even stronger case that a man endorsing the harassment and intimidation of Elise Stefanik for daring to hold different political views from his is an especially repellent example of sexism?

-----------------------

There’s an age-old question: “If a tree falls in the woods and nobody is around to hear it, does it make a sound?”

The 21st century version, “If yet another Obama Administration scandal is revealed, and the media refuse to cover it like they have all the others, is it still a ‘scandal-free Administration?’”

-------------------

President Trump reportedly plans to hire a blimp to float around over swing states, displaying his reelection messages (and I’m sure hanging out over events that CNN has to cover, just to mess with their heads.) Greg Gutfeld had a lot of fun with that idea over the weekend:

https://video.foxnews.com/v/6139396309001#sp=show-clips

Some people say this shows Trump is out of touch with modern communications, which is ludicrous since he absolutely rules Twitter. I think he just likes the idea that blimp advertising first started around 1925, making it one of the few things still around today that’s older than either of the two Democratic frontrunners.

    Gooooood Morning Huckabee!!! My dear brother, may I humbly suggest an added inspirational PS or quote, or ? to your daily news segments? — Mark Twain. (1) "Man is the Only Animal that blushes. Or needs to." (2) "Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education." Blessings - in His service, John

    Regarding this year's election, the old saying "Hindsight is 2020" is very apropos!!! We can stay with Trump and keep this nation moving forward or go waaaay back to the past and live in submission to China and OPEC plus have all of our freedoms taken away. Just wonder how M-Obama is going to cope when the right to bear arms is dissolved? Oops! That doesn't apply. It is the right to "bare" arms that applies to her! ;-)

    Mike, what do we have to do to get a list of the Congress persons who have used taxpayer money to pay shut up money for sex? The Dems have rubbed Trumps nose in his sexual exploitations which he paid with his own money. I want to know who used MY money to pay for sex!

    Will be so thankful when the election is over, and we can focus on President Trump’s continued works and success, that the American people have been so blessed to receive under this current administration!!

    Your opening "story" actually was so funny, it had me laughing almost hysterically which meant that that light-hearted "feeling" was able to, momentarily, transcend the grief in my heart upon learning, this morning, of two more teens who were shot and killed here in Charlotte! I was so surprised AT the fact that I COULD laugh....WHEN my heart is breaking....that my spontaneous thought was, "Mike's sense of humor is truly a GIFT!"

    Well, the laughter felt good while it lasted because when I read your story about the vile note left on Elise Stefanik's car and what was Governor Howard's response TO it, NOTHING you could say NO would make me laugh...especially since I had been very impressed BY the kind of delivery Elise made during the impeachment proceedings!

    When I read this story, I couldn't help wonder how many Christians shared the kind of RIGHTEOUS rage I felt UPON my reading this story! I identified immediately with the kind of righteous rage Jesus FELT that moved Him to turn over the tables of the money changers because they were making a mockery of His Father's "house" ....

    My righteous rage is not only authored by the mockery this story makes of my Father's "heart" ....and the cry OF His heart to teach His dying kids that love is not ABOUT agreeing with!!!l......but it also makes a mockery of Him....and the agony He suffered on the cross....and I do not state this to sound overly dramatic, I am only endeavoring to try and put into WORDS what I "felt" when I read this story!

    For starters, for a human being to tell another human being to "rot in hell" makes a mockery of what my Lord suffered so that no one WOULD rot in hell!

    The one who penned this "wish" to someone, just because she disagreed with his political beliefs, was moved by the same demonic hatred that is now moving a kid to pick up a gun and kill a kid just because that kid did not agree with him.....
    making a mockery of my Lord's command for us to love one another....

    BUT THEN, for Governor Howard Dean to use my Lord's words, "as ye sow so shall ye reap" , and relate it to this situation which has nothing to do with HIS perspective on why Elise reaped the evil statement on the note is to make a mockery of my Lord's holiness that authored this statement meant to warn us that we cannot sin and not know the consequences OF sin.....Elise, however, COMMITTED no sin! She simply expressed her opinion!

    And for Governor Howard Dean to go on and state that Elise was "a shame to a DEMOCRATIC United States!" was birthed in the pit of hell! Talk about insane thinking ! I suppose its NOT a shame then to a DEMOCRATIC United States that Elise deserved to be wished she rot in hell because she was exercising her right to freedom of speech!.. AND WHAT WOULD THIS GOVERNOR SAY TO JESUS CHRIST.....about HIS being a "shame to a DEMOCRATIC United States" ....SHOULD HE GIVE A PRO-REPUBLICAN SPEECH LIKE ELISE DID.....BECAUSE OF HIS HATRED OF THEIR ABOMINABLE SIN OF ABORTING HIS BABIES!!!!!!

    Judicial Watch has uncovered enough evidence against Obama and his little criminals to indict and prosecute. Never happen. Sick of this “no one is above the law”.

    I think if the Democrats pulled all of their false and misleading videos it may cause an implosion of face book and twitter and possibly all social media. All this resulting in a Large Red Tidal Wave in November. Surfing USA Four More Years!

    While that one was maybe represented, the ProQuidQuo Joe made it obvious today that this one was not. He's lucky he didn't get "slapped" as he called the guy full of sh*t and said he would slap him!! And this is Presidential material. I don't know why both Bernie & Joe just give it up and not waste anymore money on this foolishness. Donald Trump is clearly the best we have ever had and I'm been around for 87 years! Landslide Victory!! Of course where I live in Washington State you can bet these dingbats will go for the Liberals. Jay Inslee leads the pack! Shame...but we will go red in November!!!

    May God forbid that Biden get elected. Many say that he is getting some kind of dementia. If that is so, then he'd just be a figurehead while other Democrat/socialists run things. What a nightmare that would be.
    Mr. Trump has, evidently decided that he's going to be "un-nice" about fighting back now and I don't want to think about how things will be between now and November.
    May God help us in this country to look to God for help and guidance every day.

    The politicians for the last 30 years were just like the driver that could not renew his yearly plate fee for his car the politicians were busy filling their pockets by greedy agreements with the country of Communist China. The supply chain being slowed down is the result of greedy trade agreements made by greedy politicians made and approved by past administrations. President Trump has had to unravel the agreements they made that goes for China Japan South Korea Mexico Canada most all the countries we do business with. Finally a few Americans will get what the President is doing it shows our lack of supplies and the politicians that don't support the President probably are the greedy ones that made the corrupt deals. OH not pointing fingers those greedy bastards surround the President. Bring home or Start new business in communities that are in bad shape so we are no longer are dependent on our enemies for a supply chain. Vote for a conservative lets get this done MAGA!!!!!

    I'd never hard of the Streisand Effect. Thanks for that info. It's so true though. People are naturally curious and when you try to hide something or say it's wrong, people want to make their own assessment of it.
    Good stuff, Mike.

    Gov. Mike. The "Endorsement" Biden gives Trump, funny. But the news clip says that Trump inherited a good economy from Obama, and Trump is "doing a terrible job with Coronavirus". If the economy is Obama's why isn't Obama accountable for COVID19/economy, too? If twitter said that there is a twist of the news via the Republicans using Bidens Endorsement of Trump, when are they going to stop the fake news from the left?

    I just returned from my polling place here in St
    Louis. Due to an eye problem, I was wearing an eye patch. As soon as I walked in, they gave me Bernie ballot and all of their gold. Arrrgggghhhh!
