Warming up to Mad Maxine?!?

November 2, 2018 |

Either Wall Street elites are out of their minds, whistling past the graveyard, or else just extremely confident of their ability to buy off Rep. Maxine Waters (not an unreasonable assumption, considering her history).  You make the call after reading these two stories side-by-side:

From Bloomberg business news, a story about how the bankers are warming up to the idea of Mad Maxine becoming the chair of the House Financial Services Committee, and think all the worries about having a raving, angry leftwinger in the job are more headlines than reality.



Commentary continues below advertisement

Now, here is Maxine herself, telling a roaring crowd of fired-up constituents that once she’s in power, she’s going to wreak vengeance on all who have dared tick her off, especially all the banks and insurance companies. 




She said ominously (the reporter’s own adverb) to the banks, “I have not forgotten you foreclosed on our houses. I have not forgotten that you undermined our communities. I have not forgotten that you sold us those exotic products, had us sign on the dotted line for junk and for mess that we could not afford. I have people who are homeless who have never gotten back into a home. What am I going to do to you?  What I am going to do to you is fair. I’m going to do to you what you did to us.”


Yep, sounds like someone Wall Street bankers can work with!


Frankly, aside from questioning the claim that banks forced people to buy houses they couldn’t afford, I’m not bothered by the idea of seeing some of those smug, “too-big-to-fail” bankers having to deal with Maxine Waters.  Problem is, if that happened, all the rest of would have to deal with her as well.  Our 401k’s would have to deal with her.  If she’s in power, that means the Democrats took over the House and Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff and the rest of that menagerie of hotheads, hypocrites and hidden and not-so-hidden socialists that make up the current Democratic leadership will all be in power. I wouldn’t cry too hard if Maxine hounded some arrogant Wall Street bankers into homelessness, but I don’t want the rest of us to join them. 


It’s not worth the trade-off.  If the image of Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, et al, being in charge of things that seriously affect your life and your financial well-being doesn’t scare you to the polls to vote straight Republican, then nothing will.

    Too late now Mike! She was voted in due to the "whatevers" that did not vote or the liberal, socialistic communists that got out and voted for some of the most ungodly people to be in control of certain areas of Patriots' lives in the USA. The liberals won't care because they believe the lies.....wonder if they will still believe when it starts to affect their bottom line! May God's mercy....divine protection and His Godly wisdom protect His Children through all of this and may those who say they're Christians, yet totally support abortion, gay rights, etc be shaken to the core of their being and may they fall on their faces before Almighty God and repent!!! Thank you Mike for your faithfulness to our God, our President and our beautiful America. Shabbat Shalom.

    Mr. Huckabee, thanks again for being the voice to what I think. I have never voted straight one party or the other. I always thought of that option as the dummy lever (or button as it is today). This Tuesday however that's exactly what I plan to do. I like most of the reasonably minded bubbavill constituents am sick of the libs wineing and crying about the sky falling. I am not the biggest fan of Trump the man but I think that he's doing a fabulous job as our commander and chief. Thanks again for all your efforts.

    I pray every day that there is a red wave. The dems call themselves progressives, but I call them Communist We can't afford for them to take over. They are so vile, I don't think we can servive two years of democratic rule. Something needs to be done about Maxine. She should be in jail. I pray every day that God will give president Trump the wisdom to do what He wants done and protect him every day. I think Sarah is doing a wonderful job. I pray for her and her family every day. My prayer list is getting quite long these days.

    I do not know how Nancy Pelosi keeps getting re elected. She is absolutely certifiably insane. Her words "We need to pass it first before we know what is in it." How absolutely crazy is that statement. Yet she keeps saying that is exactly what she meant. She needs to get out and be forced into retirement. She has dementia or alzheimer's. She has to have a mental exam to stay in Congress. she needs to be removed from office.

    I appreciate your comments so much! You stopped showing up in my FB newsfeed (when you used to comment on Fox) so I finally went looking for you & found you on FB!! Keep up the good work, God bless you and daughter Sara and your whole family!!

    Surely people would not be this foolish to want Pelosi & Waters in control of any leadership positions; unless they are just looking for a scapegoat when things go wrong. Please tell me they are smarter than that.

    Well,Governor Huckabee,I intend on voting straight Republican on a paper ballot on Election Day,Lord willing! I voted for you in the primary when you ran for president.

    By the way,I love your Saturday night program and I love watching your very intellectual daughter giving those Marxist news reporters a lesson. She is magnificent and beautiful!

    In God’s Grace,

    Didn't Obama help bail out the failing banks; so Maxine Waters should put the blame on him as the banks then made loans to many who could not afford to pay for them or keep their homes in repair?

    You know what!?!? We've been kicking God out of our nation for the past 50 years or so. We reap what we sow. Just because you vote Republican doesn't mean you're a Christian, I've found. Dear God, our nation need help!

    I am voting straight Republican. These Democrats are mentally unstable/dangerous.

    My wife and I have already voted (by mail) and there was NO "blue candidate or proposition" voted for by us. We even ignored a couple of candidates in one race, because both were democrats. You'll note I don't dignify them by capitalizing the "D".

    We "early voted" straight Republic ticket, the 1st day the polls opened. Here in TX early voter turnout has been really BIG! Do not know if the "Blue Wave" is happening here...but the NASTY mud slinging Democratic Socialists are hard after it. Mike, MY prayer, to our heavenly Father has been:::::
    PLEASE, You install the people YOU want in our government positions, otherwise, I am afraid for America. I truly believe POTUS Trump was placed in the "People House" by GOD; I do not like every thing he has done, or "tweeted" but I DO believe he has the best interest of the United States at heart. PLEASE, Father God; use Your infinite power to have God fearing Christians elected to the openings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can’t imagine Maxine Waters being head of House Financial Services Committee. That screaming woman is not a leader. I am praying constantly that the voters will recognize that

    Lease a 100 yard strip of land from Mexico, all along the border. Then we station our forces to stop illegal crossings before the illegals can step 1 foot on US soil.

    I have never voted a straight ticket as I have always tried to vote for the person regardless of the party. At mid-terms I usually have voted for the opposite party than the President just to keep things in balance. That has been my thoughts in the past but no longer. For the first time, I will vote a straight ticket as the Dems, have just lost their ever loving minds, some didn' t have them anyway, and POWER has consumed them. The divide did and has not come from the President. It comes from the Dems that do not accept the vote. We suffered through 8 years believing that "this too shall pass". It finally did. The shame is that they don't know it???? No cure for stupid.

    Can't believe they would even consider her in a financial leadership position. Hopefully we will vote out all this hate and corruption to regain a sense of order soon. Love you, Huck! Thanks!

    Maxine is a raving lunatic!! The voters in California have confirmed they are from the "land of fruits & nuts" by putting her in office! May the Lord protect America from idiots like her. She is filled with so much hate that only the Lord can protect the American people from her.

    My comment on here about Big Mouth Maxine is that she is already a criminal along with her husband. Did they just erase the whole crime they committed with the bank there in L.A. years ago. There was never anything in the papers about how it ended up but both she and her husband should have been sent to prison. So for putting her into any Finance position they better forget about it because she will just take us to the cleaners with her criminal ways.

    I hope that Republicans realize the real consequences of this if these liberal lunatics win the House. I’m praying that all people will take notice that President Trump has done more for this country in the last two years and we don’t want these advances undone and legal hassling going on for the next two years

    the insanity of the dems is almost too horrible to contemplate. Not one is sane enough to stay out of the nut house and their fiscal policy? OMG. As some have said, there goes the nation. and yes there may very well Be a revolution and plenty of dem blood shed. We the people recognize that Kerosene anywhere NEAR a committee is bordering on treason. This is why christians and the sane people of American are praying for a red wave. There is only one solution to this. diminishing the libs to a fringe group. Like the Green party. So prayers for God's help in this election. Everything we have built for 240 years is in the balance. So we have a choice; crooks and communists or winning and growth.

    Why do we assume Maxine, Pelosi and many of the other leftists in the House will be re elected? They may be booted out in 4 days from now. Prayer is a powerful thing.

    We all need to pray. Only the Lord can give us the results we need.

    I have an adminstrative comment. I had to click on “read more” four times to get to the article from your email message. It would be nice if just one click would take me there. Thanks and just to let you know, my wife and I have already voted straight Republican here in Alaska.

    It is not normal for the majority of the people to choose evil. However, if the time comes that the people of a nation choose evil over good, "Woe Be To That Nation".

    This would scare any sane person,and should scare Christians for sure. If it doesn’t, then you need to wake up you’re one of the five who will have to ask for more oil.
