THE SEPTEMBER JOBS REPORT

The Labor Department reports that 661,000 new jobs were created in September. That’s lower than the 800,000 expected, but it was good enough to drop the unemployment rate from 8.4% to 7.9%. Black unemployment dropped from 13 to 12.1%, and Asian-American unemployment fell from 10.7 to 8.9%. The biggest drag on Americans getting back to work was the government, thanks to schools remaining closed. Also, of course, thanks to some state governments that are keeping businesses closed indefinitely (remember the good ol’ days of “Two weeks to flatten the curve?” How did that turn into “Hide in your basement from here to eternity”?)

Those draconian policies are what’s responsible for the increase of 345,000 in permanent job losses, due to employers being forced to give up and go into bankruptcy because of the endless shutdowns.

But as Rick Moran notes at the link, overall, it’s a positive jobs report, and it’s the last one that will be released before the election. He also notes that Joe Biden has stopped promoting his “Build Back Better” slogan, likely because it’s becoming obvious that we don’t need massive government intervention to rebuild the entire economy. We just need to get Democrats out of the way so people can get back to work. Say, that would be a great slogan, but probably not one that Joe would want to use.

CONGRATULATIONS MICHIGAN

Congratulations to the people of Michigan, whose Supreme Court has just ruled that the law cited by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to justify her grabbing the power to impose her arbitrary, draconian and endless shutdown edicts is unconstitutional. Since this is the state constitution, there’s no appealing to a higher federal court.

This is the point at which the Governor should throw in the towel and meet with the GOP legislature to craft a reasonable compromise policy for dealing with the pandemic that doesn’t require destroying people’s livelihoods and stomping on their Constitutional rights. But maybe you didn’t notice in the first paragraph that I said this is Gretchen Whitmer. So her immediate response was to shrug off the Court ruling and insist that she would keep on imposing her rules anyway by citing some other laws that allegedly give her the power to act as the executive and legislative (and apparently now, judicial) branch all in one.

And Democrats foolishly conjecture about Trump refusing to give up power? Trying to force one of them to give up the power they seized during this pandemic is going to be like trying to wrestle a banana away from King Kong.

ABUSING PANDEMIC RULES

On the subject of power-mad Democrat Governors abusing pandemic rules, California is now imposing a “racial equity” grid on counties, barring them from reopening their economies if the rate of infection in their “disadvantaged communities” of blacks, Latinos and Pacific-Islanders lags significantly behind the overall infection rate. At the link, Tyler O’Neil examines what a lot of “critical race theory” garbage has to do with whether it’s safe to let stores open or not. This seems to be no more relevant to the spread of disease than New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s famous shutdown of bars if they don’t serve food more substantial than snacks.

I wonder if the Democrats destroying California would please explain how the coronavirus can be so racist and also so liberal that it agrees not to spread at Black Lives Matter protests.

"WHAT ARE THE PROUD BOYS?"

It seems as if the biggest result of Chris Wallace demanding that President Trump denounce “white supremacist” groups and using the Proud Boys as an example was not the phony “Trump supports white supremacists!” narrative the Democrats are pushing, but Americans collectively asking, “What are the ‘Proud Boys’? Are those the guys who hang out with Peter Pan? No, wait, that’s the Lost Boys…”

So once again, by bringing it up, Wallace just brought the group the media spotlight and millions of dollars in free publicity. And the public became even more confused when the national spokesperson for the Proud Boys not only showed up on TV to denounce white supremacy, but he also happened to be black (it was turning into a Dave Chappelle sketch at that point.) Now, it just got even more confusing for those who were led to believe the Proud Boys were like a junior league KKK:

The Salt Lake City chapter of the Proud boys denounced white supremacy during a joint press conference with the northern Utah chapter of Black Lives Matter.

The Proud Boys leader said, “We are in no way, shape or form white supremacists,” they just believe that Western civilization is best. And the local BLM leader said they’re partnering with the Proud Boys on police reform and the people “need to be able to reach across the aisle and have these tough conversations.”

I know it would be the perfect “Mel Brooks” style capper to this story, but no, the leader of the Utah branch of Black Lives Matter isn’t white.

ANTIFA IS A MOVEMENT

Speaking of the Dems who cried “White supremacist,” a reporter decided to go undercover to expose the alleged "rightwing extremists" who, according to Democrats, are really behind the racially-charged riots and looting in blue cities. He dressed up in black and worked his way into a violent group in Santa Monica. Unlike the rest of us, he was surprised to discover that they weren’t rightwingers, they were “insurrectionary anarchists” (who could’ve seen that coming?)

So he joined in with the rioters in other cities across the nation and found the same thing. They were leftwing anarchists who were part of the Antifa movement (not an “idea,” Joe, but a “movement.”) They don’t “spontaneously” riot over random incidents of police brutality. They recruit members online and meticulously organize their gatherings and protests using social media. You know, like a terrorist organization. Now let’s see, who called them that? Oh, right: President Trump.

Astoundingly, even after seeing what they are with his own eyes, and learning that the narrative he’d been fed was completely false, what was the reporters’ biggest concern about these well-organized, violent anarchists? That their tactics could help get Trump reelected.

And that’s what we mean in the South when we say, “You can’t fix stupid.”

THEY WILL TRY ANYTHING

The “Throw Anything And See If It Sticks” Tactic: Democrats desperate to derail Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s SCOTUS nomination and having no scandals – and no hope of getting anyone to believe ridiculous ones they make up, a la the Brett Kavanagh hearings – think they’ve found the smoking gun.

Fourteen years ago, Judge Barrett and her husband signed their names along with other prominent local people to a pro-life newspaper ad in South Bend, Indiana, that read, “It’s time to put an end to the barbaric legacy of Roe v Wade and restore law that protects the lives of unborn children."

Democrats are howling that this disqualifies her from the Court because she didn’t mention it in the forms she filled out for the Senate Judiciary Committee, which require her to disclose any “published material you have written or edited” on relevant cases. The White House calls it irrelevant because Barrett didn’t write or edit the ad, she just let them put her name on it.

Still, I have to congratulate the Democrats for actually digging up a yellowed 14-year-old ad from a South Bend, Indiana, newspaper to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt, with geometric logic, that the Catholic judge with seven children is opposed to abortion. Give your bloodhounds a Scooby Snack; they’ve earned it!

Next, try to figure out my position on Roe v. Wade…

    Gov Huckabee: Regarding PRES DJT REMOVING HIS NASK AND ENTERING THE WHITE HOUSE. As a life long Republican, I think the Cabinet Should meet and remove everyone can get behind, (perhaps yourself) and Pence promises to step down if elected. Trump is no longer fit for duty.

    Just a small fact-check for accuracy's sake. The spokesperson for the Proud Boys said he was not 'white', however he did not say he was black. He said he had Cuban ancestry and he did appear to be Latino (am I really saying this)?

    Gov. Huckabee. I just love your column. You say it like it is and it is always factual information, not your version of it. I only wish more people would see your column and see what the righters are doing to destroy this country.
    P.S. I voted for you and even gave a donation to you. Wish you were back in there. I am sorry to say that Illinois has always been a democrat state simply because of all the democrats in Chicago on welfare. We have an idiot governor and people are leaving like crazy to live in WI. My husband wants to go there also, because IL is #50 state in the union, even in worse shape than CA is, if that is possible. People are just nuts..................

    President Trump exposed to China Virus? Not at all.

    Governor,
    Please note to your readers that more than 200,000 government employees lost their jobs. Why pay for schools not in session? #MyMoneyBack
    Sadly, Governor Whitmer plans on ignoring the court by using another statute giving her powers granted during emergencies. The only hope for MI is removal from office.

    Mike, I hope you will read this. I believe, as do many others, that the Covid that hit only REPUBLICANS, was planned by the left. The was a planned set-up!! They will try anything and everything to stop the confirmation of Judge Amy. I noticed that the DEMOCRATS BOYCOTTED the Rose garden event that introduced her and family. So, as Chuck and Nancy keep saying, "we've got many arrows in our quiver" and have stated from the beginning that Trump will not be in the WH come Jan. 2021, no matter what, guaranteed! Plus Chuck Shumer said never underestimate what they can do, indicating that they had all sorts of federal agents in their pockets!
    The virus was purposely planted at this event!! The dems have many nefarious creatures who could carry this out in their bag of evil tricks. This way, they tried to take out the president, republican senators on the judicial committee, and whose vote is needed to confirm, they (an assassination attempt??) wanted the judge, but missed that one, etc. etc. The key that sealed this thought in this 75 year old grandma, was Kellyanne. She has not been around for a month, but was present this day, an is positive!!

    In all the rallies, not one of these people, contracted the virus...but democrats were present there. They didn't want to hit democrats! What better place to make sure they weren't present, but hit key targets.

    The dems have many evil people who would have the knowledge and ability to pull this off. It can be airborne. This was not transmitted from a person, but some other way. I'm so angry that the left in our country have lowered themselves to these evil schemes, but we've already witnessed what they will do to regain power and control us! Their plan is to have the election go to the court and are scared their plan won't work if Amy gets in.

    I'm sorry if this is rambling, but I hope you get my message and please contact whoever can investigate this, the FBI, etc. could already be in on it or be the culprits. I can't get any response from any representatives. Please, please help get this out to Sara Carter, John Soloman or someone we trust to follow up. I saw Facebook post last night from many people who see the same thing. We can't let this continue in our great country. I've been praying endlessly for our president and Melania...we need them and love them. Thank you for all you do, love your daily articles.

    The lockdowns delay and perpetuate this virus and bring unnecessary suffering to the populace. Perhaps a vaccine will be effective but it may not. If "funny money" Joe Biden should win and locks down the country he could prolong the virus indefinitely.

    Since all the Polls state Joe(Hide in my basement) Biden and his fellow liberal democrats think they have this won ask yourself the following:

    IF I GIVE YOU A LARGE AMOUNT OF MONEY , USE YOUR BRAIN AND READ ABOUT WHAT IT WAS LIKE IN CHICAGO AND OTHER CITIES KNOWING YOU HAD THE POLITICANS UNDER YOUR CONTROL DURING
    THE 1920 ANS 1930'S.

    THEN GO AROUND YOUR HOUSE AND LOOK AT THE MAJOR APPLIANCES AND CLOTHING YOU
    WEAR AND OTHER THINGS AND SEE THE POINT OF ORIGIN AND WHERE IT WAS ASSEMBLED
    OR MADE.

    THEN ASK YOURSELF DO YOU THINK YOUT EMPLOYER IS GOING TO KEEP YOU WORKING
    AFTER THE CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER COMES TO THE EXECUTIVEE BOARD AND FLIPS
    THEM THE FISCAL REPORT TELLING THEM THEIR STORES OR PLACES THEY OWN HAVE
    BEEN DROPPED BY THE INSURANCE COMPANY OR THE PREMIMUMS FORTHOSE SAME STORE
    HAS ALMOST DOUBLED MEANING THAT YOUR BONUSES CANNOT BE PAID DUE TO THE
    STOCKHOLDERS AND OTHER EXPENSES HAVE DOUBLED AND WE ARE LOOKING AT RED INK
    IN THOSE STATES CONTROLLED BY THE DEMOCRATS.

    DO YOU THINK THE EXECUTIVE BOARD WILL KEEP THOSE STORES OR OFFICES OPEN OR
    JUST CLOSE THEM AND MOVE TO THE RED STATES MAKING A PROFIT LEAVING BEHIND ALL
    EMPLOYEES THAT USED TO WORK THERE NOW HAVE TO GO OUT TELL THEIR FAMILIES
    WE ARE IN FINANCIAL TROUBLE.
    .

    THAT MEANS LIKE THE LADIES OF THE NIGHT SAY: NO MONEY NO LOVING.

    BUSINESSES ARE THERE TO MAKE A PROFIT NOT A LOSS.

    I thought of a good political cartoon but unfortunately am not an artist. Thought the Governor may know a good one who can produce & publish well before the election. Picture: Bernie Sanders with a mask (covid) on as the seated ventriloquist with Biden sitting on his knee as the dummy. Biden's mouth should appear as a dummy's would (no mask). Have Obama directing one arm on a stick & AOC on the other. Show some speech tags or blocks with the words: "Move the teleprompter closer" , "Am I still in the basement", "I can't answer about packing the court", "Trump is bad", "Hey Bernie is the mask so they can't see your lips move?", or any other appropriate one. Thanks Mark

    I'm a fan but I'm reaching out to you. I am a hit songwriter, I've written hits for Darryl Worley, Martina McBride, Tracy Lawrence, John Micheal Montgomery, etc., I hate reciting those guys as a reference (but I love those peeps) but it's not the reason I'm writing you.
    I wrote a book called "The Life You Thought You Lived" currently on Amazon and wherever books are sold but I was wondering of you wouldn't mind reading it and give your review of it.
    I am an ordained minister also and the Lord dropped this book on me so I wrote it and published by TBN/Trilogy
    Thank you for your time
