Settle in tonight for another brand new episode of “Huckabee” on TBN! My guests will include Brian Kolfage, the triple-amputee US military hero whose new battle is a David-vs-Goliath legal showdown with Facebook for banning his conservative news site with no warning or explanation. Multi-award-winning Christian music superstar Russ Taff and his wife Tori will give us a sneak preview of a riveting new documentary, “Russ Taff: I Still Believe.” Bestselling author Eric Metaxas is back to share his hilarious new children’s book for kids and adults, “Donald Drains The Swamp.” I’ll have commentaries on current events, some strange and hilarious news “In Case You Missed It,” and you’ll learn about a unique veterans’ aid group that I support called “Heroes to Heroes.” We’ll cap it all off with music from one of the greatest gospel groups of all time, the Imperials. Now that’s a show!
It’s only on TBN, tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, and repeated the same times on Sunday. To find the TBN outlet in your area, and to stream past shows, visit https://www.tbn.org/programs/huckabee
With the Florida man who allegedly sent pipe bombs to prominent Democrats already in custody, authorities are on the lookout in case there might still be some in the mail, and continuing to investigate to find out if anyone else was involved. At the White House, President Trump congratulated law enforcement agencies for “an incredible, incredible job.”
He also declared that “these terrorizing acts are despicable and have no place in our country — no place." He said that he’s “instructed authorities to spare no resource or expense in finding those responsible and bringing them to swift and certain justice” and vowed a prosecution to the fullest extent of the law. Trump said, “We must never allow political violence to take root in America” and he is “committed to doing everything in my power as President to stop it and stop it now.” Finally, he added that America “must show the world that we are united together in peace and love and harmony as fellow American citizens.”
There, I hope that was all clear enough for CNN to report that he did indeed denounce domestic terrorism.
Incidentally, Trump made the comments while giving a White House tour to a group of young black conservatives from Turning Point USA, who were in DC for a leadership conference. The African-American college students gave Trump a rousing welcome, which he returned, telling them that he hopes to see a future black Republican President one day.
I added that part because I’m pretty certain you’re not going to hear it reported on most media outlets.
NeverTrump diehards point to the guilty pleas that the Mueller investigation has managed to obtain (none of them having anything to do with “Russian collusion in the 2016 election” – remember that?) and say, “A-ha! Nobody who did nothing wrong would plead guilty!” They overlook the fact that when faced with a prosecutor who has an unlimited budget and a mandate to hunt for any crime with no limits, his targets might accept a deal just because defending themselves is bankrupting them (it cost Ret. Gen. Mike Flynn his house.)
As time has gone by, and the politicization and corruption of the Mueller investigation has become apparent, that “But what about the guilty pleas?” argument might be the next domino to fall. For instance, former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos cut a plea deal a year ago on a minor charge of making false statements, and he has already been sentenced to just 14 days. But he now believes he can prove he was framed through government misconduct and is considering trying to pulling out of the deal.
Details at the link, for those keeping track of the slow, public unraveling of this mess of an investigation.
Probably the scariest words in politics at this moment in history are “As California goes, so goes the nation.”
California is often held up as the shining example of how “progressive” liberal policies will help the poor and middle class and eliminate income equality, while Republicans only help the rich and loot from the poor and middle class. With California voters looking at the very real, suicidal possibility of making the former mayor of San Francisco their next Governor, and voters across the country being told the key to future happiness is to be more like California, what exactly would that future look like?
In fact, if California is a laboratory for the progressive experiment, then the experiment went horribly wrong, and it’s time for the villagers to tear the lab down before the monster it created eats them all. As Matt Margolis at PJ Media points out, while Republican policies under Trump are finally bringing jobs, tax relief and rising incomes to the poor and middle class, California is one of the worst states for income inequality and, when the sky-high cost of living is factored in, is now the poorest state in the US.
While “progressives” claim that only their socialist-inspired policies can help the poor and middle class, California proves those policies are an abject failure that hurt and drive out the poor and middle class, creating a sharply-divided society of super-rich tech and Hollywood feudal lords and impoverished serfs.
The numbers don’t lie: 19% of Californians are below the poverty line, and despite having only 12% of the US population, the state is home to one-third of all Americans on welfare. California ranks #3 in money spent on welfare, but those programs aren’t helping because the state’s leftist policies make living there ever more difficult and expensive. For instance, largely due to high taxes and “green” initiatives, monthly rents are 43% higher than the national average, and electricity costs from 2011 to 2017 grew 500% faster than the national average (not to mention the costs of everything that it takes electricity to create – i.e, everything.) Despite all the compassionate yak-yak from California politicians about how much they care about the homeless, the state’s street population increased by 17% in 2017 alone, and that was during the post-Obama economic boom.
Read the entire article, but the juxtaposition of just these two facts makes the situation starkly clear: Facebook founder “Mark Zuckerberg is worth $70 billion while San Franciscans have an app that helps them track human feces on the sidewalk.”
Not mentioned in the article, but worth adding: Despite having some of America’s highest gas prices due to taxes that supposedly fund roads, 62% of the state’s roads are rated poor or mediocre (while billions are being poured into a poorly-conceived, liberal dream “bullet train” boondoggle.) Even as the state faces unsustainable pension obligations, politicians are pushing for government-paid health care for all that would cost more than twice the current state budget.
Between 2007 and 2016, California experienced a net loss of 1 million residents. Those leaving were largely younger, poor and middle class, mostly fleeing to red states such as Texas and Arizona. Those moving in were older, high-income people, mostly from other blue states such as Illinois or New Jersey, who are used to being taxed to death. This continues the growing income inequality of the Golden State, a nickname that now means you need a pot of gold just to afford a one-bedroom apartment in Silicon Valley.
When you go to vote, remember that California gives you a chilling preview of what could be coming to your state if you fall for the false promises of “progressivism” or “Democratic socialism” on a national scale. Let’s hope the concept of California spreading westward will be limited to all the poor and middle class Cali residents fleeing to red states to enjoy better lives.
May I speak for the residents of all red states when I say: “Welcome…but please don’t vote to plague us with the same leftist policies that you left your blue states to escape!”
Posters have been appearing on the sides of trash cans in New York City, branding Christian Trump supporters as unwanted “trash.” Sanitation Department officials say the posters were plastered there without permission by a radical UC-Berkeley design graduate who claims it’s street art to protest how Trump reflects “a lot of hate and ideologies that exist in the population.” You mean, like the kneejerk prejudice of leftists who depict Christians and Republicans they've never met and know nothing about as “trash”?
He’s been hit with a cease-and-desist order by the City of Manhattan, proving that it is actually possible to be a big enough leftwing jerk that not even New York City wants you.
When undercover filmmakers released videos allegedly exposing Planned Parenthood clinics engaging in the illegal sale of fetal body parts, the organization denied the accusations and tried to sue the filmmakers into silence. That may be proving to be a very bad move on their part. The filmmakers didn’t roll over; they’re fighting Planned Parenthood in court. And with the legal power of discovery on their side, they’re slowly unearthing documents that PP has been trying very hard to keep the public – and especially Congress – from seeing.
An immigration expert reminded Americans that there is a solution to the Central American caravan problem, one that’s been proven to work in keeping large groups of illegal immigrants from crossing the border en masse. A lot of people won’t like hearing this, but that solution was a wall. And it’s in California.
