"CUTIES"

A lot of people who are paying for Netflix are starting to reconsider what their money is supporting after the channel added a film called “Cuties,” about a dance troupe of scantily-clad, twerking, highly-sexualized pre-teen girls that critics are denouncing as just short of pedophile porn.

A spokesman for Netflix claims the film is a “social commentary against the sexualization of young children,” but it begs the question, do you really have to depict the sexualization of young children in order to take a stand against it? I agree with his comment against “the pressure young girls face on social media and from society” to act like sexualized adults, but do they not see how viewers might assume that pressure now includes Netflix?

If Netflix wanted to spur societal action with this movie, it has. The hashtag #CancelNetflix is trending on Twitter, and a Change.org petition to remove “Cuties” and cancel Netflix over it and other programming that exploits children and mocks people of faith has, at this writing, garnered over 610,000 signatures. So congratulations, Netflix! Mission accomplished!

JOB CREATOR JOE?!?

Some more food for thought for those who believe Joe Biden’s claim that he’ll be better than Trump at creating jobs: two new studies looked at the ramifications of Biden’s vow to ban fossil fuel leases on public lands. They estimate that it would cost 62,000 jobs in New Mexico, 120,000 jobs in Texas and 200,000 jobs across the Gulf Coast region. That would also result in billions of dollars in lost revenues to those states.

But hey, don't worry. I’m sure they’ll all be replaced by jobs building windmills!

IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS THINKING OF VOTING DEMOCRAT...

I keep hearing about people, particularly suburban moms, who will vote for Biden because they don’t like Trump’s brash style or pugnacious personality. Frankly, I think that a lot of them, who vote primarily based on protecting the safety of their families, must be thinking harder about that as they watch the violence and anarchy in Democrat-run cities, Biden’s long silence about it, and the threats by the radicals to bring it to the suburbs (you can sense the suburban trepidation by looking at skyrocketing gun sales figures.)

But if you know someone who is still thinking of voting Democrat simply because Trump sends mean Tweets, then please share this article with them. It’s by someone who admits that he doesn’t like Trump’s personal style, either. He says he doesn’t want to vote for Trump. But he’s going to, because, like it or not, the only way to vote for policies that preserve what has made America great and that make sense for all Americans instead of policies that will destroy this nation is to vote for Trump.

It's time for all voters who care about America's future to do what all thoughtful people do: ignore Twitter and vote for Trump.

U.S. DISTRICT COURT RULES AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP

A three-judge panel of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York unanimously ruled against President Trump’s efforts not to include illegal immigrants in the Census counting that determines how many House Representatives states get. So if you live in a state with fewer illegal immigrants, you’ll get less representation in your own government than a state that’s let in a lot of illegal immigrants to overrule the wishes of actual US citizens.

https://www.newsmax.com/politics/trump-newyork-supremecourt-illegalimmigrant/2020/09/10/id/986352/

This is yet another reason why we need four more years of Trump. Because putting Biden and the Democrats in charge will stack our courts with judges who would prioritize illegal aliens over the rights of US citizens.

On that topic, here is a newly-released list of 20 people that Trump would consider nominating to the Supreme Court in a second term. They include solid Constitutionalists and even a couple of Senators: Ted Cruz and Tom Cotton, to help make liberal heads explode.

Trump also called on Joe Biden to release the names of judges he would nominate, but he said Biden hasn’t done it because they’re so far left, they couldn’t withstand public scrutiny. Or maybe his campaign hasn't told him who he'd nominate yet.

THE NFL RESUMES

Last night, the NFL finally started its season, with the Chiefs and the Texans debuting the League’s new ultra-PC, social justice, pro-BLM attitude – and it’s safe to say that it was not a hit with fans. The NFL gave us SJW slogans painted on the sidelines, and the “black national anthem” before the real National Anthem. Yet despite the severely limited crowd, when the Texans didn’t come out during the National Anthem, and several Chiefs linked arms while Alex Okafor knelt and raised his fist, the reduced crowd’s booing was still plenty loud enough to be audible on TV.

The booing got the expected reaction from the leftist Twitter trolls, who accused those who booed of being racists. I have a word to describe that claim, but I don’t use language like that. These people (most likely never NFL fans anyway) can take their straw man and go stuff it. The booing wasn’t because football fans are pro-racism. It’s because they’re fed up with paying good money to be accused of racism and of having one of the longtime unifying, non-political, all-American events ruined by leftwing political grandstanding that disrespects America.

Nobody’s telling the players they can’t say anything they want when they aren’t on the clock. I wonder, if those people criticizing the fans went to buy a car, and the salesman said they couldn’t take a test drive until they sat through his speech about how great Trump is, would they respect his First Amendment rights or would they go to the manager and demand that he be fired for inflicting his personal politics on customers in the business place?

And did it never occur to these players that as people who have become millionaires for playing a game, what ingrates they appear to be when they insult the fans and the nation that’s given them such incredible blessings and opportunities? Did it even occur to them that they were showing disrespect to the flag and the National Anthem on the very eve of 9/11?

I think one of the best comments I saw on this came from Free Republic commenter smvoice, who wrote, “I hope these (bleep) owners and players are haunted with memories of the good times when the stadiums were filled with die-hard fans excitedly doing the Wave. Then I hope they find themselves looking through the classified jobs ads and suddenly remembering they never learned to read.”

LINE OF THE DAY

This is a terrific article by Michael Thau that digs into the data on the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus to show that the government’s reaction to it has been deadlier than the virus itself.

But even aside from the massive amounts of information that you likely won’t see anywhere else, this deserves a click just for the best line I’ve seen all week:

“It’s the Dem panic and not the pandemic that’s responsible for the high death tally.”

THE REAL SPIRIT OF 9/11

A big salute to these Huck’s Heroes, the US Army pilots who were told it was too dangerous to go into the smoke-filled canyons and save 300 campers from a California wildfire – but they went in anyway – twice!

    You don't exploit young girls to "illustrate" exploitation. What an abomination
    the parents of those girls should be brought up on sexual exploitation of their own children. This is but another example of the depths of depravity that the world is engaged in-God could wipe us off the face of the world with one sweep-and we would deserve it. So...if their motives were so "pure" why did they choose to film in a foreign country-so that the they are outside the purview of U.S. laws. By the way, how does a porn star (Kardi
    b) become mainstream with a vice-presidential candidate talking with her as though she is someone to be admired? I realize Joe had no idea who she was. While I'm on it-I no longer watch mainstream television-those insidious sitcoms, self-adulating awards shows, et.al. with their built in propaganda-and then, the idiot "stars" who now believe they have pontification rights for the rest of us. I don't know one third of their names, because I don't watch them on television, in films-not the least interested. The are ignorant fools. Please explain to me why the most privileged people want tho tear down the country that afforded them their "success"-should we become Marxist-they are the first to go. Bye Bye Barbie Streistand-she will never receive 1 cent from me. The President of the Pontification Society. Sorry...but I hav a lot to say today.
    Aoc or Sandy Cortez is like a spoiled brat, "Mommy, since I am a very privileged and indulged Westchester girl ...can I please have a "new green deal" where I get to institute the National Guard for 10 years? It will be so much fun. Please Mommy-if you don't I'll hold my breath. Meanwhile, Mommy Pelosi wants to place someone like herself at the helm-and her example of her success as a candidate is how well she has managed the once beautiful city of San Francisco. Don't hold your breath Mom.

    The only book I read in High School that scared me was 1984! Never forgot it. I now think of all the book written about things then we thought was never going to happen and laughed at them, Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers space travel??? 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Journey To The Center OF The Earth (not yet proven entirely) But??? , among others. Now we are living in a preview of 1984!

    So many of our judges want to write law from the bench, it is time we stop the non partisan issue over judges. It is so hard to find non partisan Judges, as a voter I need to know what party they are affilitated with. We now have attorney generals who will not prosecute individuals who break the law, depending upon their party affiliations.

    Thank you, Governor Huckabee, for keeping us informed in your comfortable, often humorous, always truthful articles. I hope you don't mind, but I cut and paste most of them onto my newsfeed on Facebook, giving you credit for each one. Many people who know me don't comment on my posts, but have told me privately that they read every one, and they LOVE what you have to say. I've also posted a link to your newsletter. Thank you for keeping this up! We love and appreciate you.

    This is the most disgusting thing in the use of children. I think Netflix should be abolished from any viewing in the United States. There is enough abduction of children to be sold as slaves. Something needs to be done now. Children are not put on this earth for others sexual pleasure.

    I wouldn't watch a NFL game anymore, if my life depended on it. Just irritates me that those players who have more than most choose tto use their games for a "sounding" ground. If they want to do that out on the street, OK, but don't use an arena where I have paid good money to see a game, not their BLM writings and songs. My life matters and so does everyone's!

    Netflix, standing in for Epstein? Same thing and guess what, aren't they the same people that went on Epstein's plane to the Island or visited one of his homes all over the world? They are all looking for more wealth by playing with innocent little girls and where did they find little girls to do this kind of thing...............from parents wanting money. DISGUSTING AND ALSO VERY SICKENING!

    best info yet!!!
    “It’s the Dem panic and not the pandemic that’s responsible for the high death tally.”
    Interesting article.....!
    the CDC has instructed doctors to put COVID-19 on death certificates without any positive test. Indeed, no medical justification at all is required. They’re even supposed to attribute deaths to COVID-19 if the deceased tested negative so long as they’ve “assumed” he had the virus and that it made some contribution, no matter how small, to his demise.

    Mr. Huckabee,
    You need to get "woke". You surely know by now that d,,emocrats believe that pedophelia is a "sexual orientation" and they have a right to shove that down our throats the same as homosexuality. Bill Clinton and Joe Biden both have a penchant for young girls, therefore it must be right.
    It won't be too long before they will be calling those of us who oppose their new chosen lifestyle "pedophobes".
    Let me be clear, I am NOT a democrat and do not endorse that point of view.

    I think Trump can win Oregon! Alex Skarlatos is running for the US Congress in the 4th District to defeat Peter DeFazio, a liberal Democrats that voted the same as AOC 96% of the time. If President Trump would do a Rally and focus on Oregon a bit he could win the state and help Alex win in the US House! Portland being a poster child for anarchy makes Oregon open for a Trump and Skarlatos victory! Please pass this on to the Trump campaign!

    I can not understand the social problem in this country I am a big fan of sports at all the levels the professional sports teams has majority of non white people that play in those venues. I watch college sports and a majority of non white people play in that venue to get to those levels the non white people have too play some where so they play in the youth venues by the millions non white students,High Schoo and middle school students, are educated every year by the millions equal opportunity has been in effect for 50 years if not more. Why the outrage about social equity everyone has opportunities. The kneelers showing disrespect to the National Anthem is not about social equity it's about people of all colors defending the right for equal opportunity. The kneelers do not know captured warriors were thrown off battles ships with an anchor tied to their body, warriors were dismembered, Parents and wives got knock on their doors just to be told the warrior will not be coming home, the ignorance of the kneelers is so cowardly so disrespectful so hideous with all evil in the world this is what they got to fuss about I have lived a few months without sports I will be back when the game becomes what it is suppose to be; sports. let the political hacks act like fools stick to sports while you still have an audience. Stand up and respect the real warriors.

    To those women who don't like Trump's brash style or pugnacious personality I would say please try to consider what it means to be a boxer in a ring. When Trump came to power I could see he was like a pugilist - a professional boxer. He could not survive as a reformer in Washington without this quality. Now, a boxing match is not a pretty thing to watch. But the tactics employed are essential to staying in the ring. You MUST duck and weave and wait for an opening and then punch hard if you want to get through the fight standing up.

    The Embarrassment and Shame of the Joe Biden Family

    Today, I received a letter in the mail from the Biden Victory Fund, asking me to donate funds to the Biden President Victory Fund and the first question to cross my mind is:
    Has the entire Joe Biden Family no embarrassment or shame, in seeing their own Joe Biden, the patriarch of the Biden Family, being totally exhibited nationally, used up physically and being mentally exposed, by the Biden Family and the Democrat National Party, as an empty suit? With all of this in plain sight, nationally and clear to see, is it not an extreme case of elder mental health abuse, which will in turn advance other debilitating health issues?
    It is most appalling to see that the “Joe Biden Family” is actually using their family leader, in such a bazar fashion and manner, which is truly a daily exposure to the ongoing detriment and demise in the mental health of Joe Biden. Where are the Biden Family members in protecting Joe Biden from these debilitating and ominous late stages in his life? This is truly an embarrassment to the entire Joe Biden Family.
    Is there no shame in the Joe Biden Family, in what is obvious to all, which is their total abdication of their inherent family responsibilities, to ease and protect their patriarch from the ravages of an ever-increasing dementia and his overall health?
    At the age of 78, since Joe Biden has already served 50 years in public service for the Democrat party, is there no shame in the Democrat Party today, in their selfish use of the last few remaining years of Joe Biden’s life, for political purposes? Attempting to foster off Joe Biden in a National Election, is clearly a politically planned “Empty Suit” disservice to America. With Joe Biden being the supposed Democrat Presidential candidate, to be the next President of the people, for the United States of America, is nothing short of being obnoxious to all. How far down into the sea of deception will a political party possibly sink, in order to ruin an elder’s health and remaining life?
    I for one, cannot in good conscious, be any part of the Biden Family’s excruciating demise of Joe Biden’s mental health and future wellbeing, which is clearly an extreme case of “elder abuse’, and is being executed for political reasons, on the part of the entire Joe Biden Family and Democrat Party. A health travesty almost beyond belief.
    Please remove my name from the Biden Victory Fund mailing list.
