By Mike Huckabee

BIDEN EMERGES 

Monday was like Groundhog Day in summer, as Punxsutawney Joe emerged from his burrow 10 days ahead of schedule, saw his Teleprompter in Pittsburgh, and signaled that there will be two more months of campaigning after all.

Not that it went that well. Having been goaded by President Trump into not hiding out for another 10 days (Trump called that "an eternity in Trumpville"), Biden did prove once again that he’s still capable of reading words off of a screen, but he seemed to get tired and confused toward the end, resulting in some indecipherable tossed word salad.

The “press conference” then ended with him turning and exiting the stage, ignoring the questions called out by the handful of reporters who were allowed to be in the huge room with him (each one corralled far back, inside “social distancing” circles that reminded me of the "Cone of Silence" from "Get Smart"...)

The thrust of the speech was partly for Biden to finally…FINALLY…suggest that riots, looting and murder of cops and Trump supporters aren’t cool, but mostly to float the idea that it’s all Trump’s fault. Trump is to blame for creating the atmosphere of divisiveness because he refused to accept the results of the 2016 election…oh, wait, that was them. Well, because he encourages his supporters to physically assault people who don’t agree with them. No, that’s them again...Okay, his supporters are to blame because a small handful of them (so far) have armed themselves to fight back against mobs attacking them and destroying their homes and businesses instead of just standing there like sitting ducks and taking it. How dare they?!

I don’t know about you, but when I think of “Trump’s America,” I think of Manhattan, Chicago, Portland, Seattle (cue grunge guitar riff), Minneapolis and other cities that have been under solid Democratic control since before Trump bought his first monogrammed hankie -- the kind of GOP hotbeds where people share unfunny Stephen Colbert video clips every day, think that Rachel Maddow is an actual journalist, and drive Priuses with “Not My President!” bumper stickers on them.

If that’s “Trump’s America,” then what’s “Biden’s America”? Fantasyland at Disney World?

Anyone who’s been paying any attention at all over the past few years knows that this level of mindless partisan vitriol was not caused by a few rude Trump tweets. It’s the poison fruit of the “Resistence” movement and leftist politicians like Maxine Waters, Ayanna Pressley, Nancy Pelosi and others, demonizing Trump and his supporters and urging civil unrest in the streets (or worse – ask Rep. Steve Scalise how Bernie Bros demonstrate their political opposition with rifles.) Only a few brainwashed potheads online could possibly believe that all the BLM/Antifa looting, arson and assaults on cops are secretly the doing of Trump supporters.

Tucker Carlson at Fox News summed up Biden’s speech well, calling it possibly “the most thoroughly dishonest speech ever given by a major presidential candidate," one in which “virtually every word of it was the opposite of the truth. It was literally beyond belief."

I couldn’t agree more, but what else are the Dems going to do? I can only imagine how awful their internal polls must look to scare them into taking on this emergency rescue mission. Especially after last week’s conventions, where the Dems spent all their time badmouthing Trump and America and paying homage to the “peaceful protesters” who are destroying our cities while Trump offered days’ worth of traditional, pro-American messaging about restoring law and order, putting aside racial differences and working together to make America great again.

(Here’s Rush Limbaugh’s commentary on how Trump is running to save us from a race war. It contains some really eye-opening poll data.)

(And a new Zogby poll showing that Biden’s support among blacks has dropped by 15 points and Trump’s support is up to 20 percent, or 9 points more than campaign officials believe he would need to win reelection.)

Biden’s handlers faced a Hobson’s choice: They could condemn the violent, racist radical rioters and risk alienating their far-left, pro-violence base…or they could embrace them and alienate all the sane people. They can’t win with no votes from sane people, and they need their insane base, so they’re trying to split the difference with a “Hail Mary” pass: finally acknowledge that the violence exists (now that it’s devolved into murdering a Trump supporter and celebrating that), but somehow blame it on Trump and his supporters. As if they somehow had it coming, what with thinking they had a First Amendment right to express their opinions in public without fear of being shot.

Trump has, in fact, made it clear that he doesn’t want his supporters to confront these people. He wants to send in the professionals to restore order, but the Democrat Mayors and Governors would rather put their TDS first and put on a public display of snuffing Trump than let him help stop the destruction of their own cities and the violence against their own people. That’s why the “D” in TDS stands for “Derangement.”

Buck Sexton summed up the latest excuse to spin away reality quite well:

The Democrats obviously think the big winning message of Biden’s speech is this, which they sent out in a tweet under his name: “Does anyone believe there will be less violence in America if Donald Trump is reelected?” Mollie Hemingway quite rightly replied, “The ‘blackmail Americans into voting for me by threatening more violence unless I win’ strategy is so impossibly evil and strategically unwise.”

BUY NOW: THE THREE Cs THAT MADE AMERICA GREAT: CHRISTIANITY, CAPITALISM, AND THE CONSTITUTION.

Forces on the Left seeks to fundamentally change our nation by disregarding the principles upon which it was founded. Members of the media and liberal politicians seek to damage our economic, political, and educational systems for their gain. The Three Cs That Made America Great: Christianity, Capitalism, and the Constitution: Huckabee exposes the Left's plan to undermine the Christian values on which the nation was built

  • reveals how attacks on Christianity are part of the political agenda of Liberals
  • provides a clear understanding of capitalism and how free markets benefit all people
  • reveals how Liberals undermine capitalism with their socialistic policies
  • shows how the Constitution’s purpose to restrain government and protect individual liberty
  • unmask the efforts of the liberal Left to subvert the power and relevance of the Constitution
  • exposes the current corruption in government and culture
  • which undermines the principles on which the nation was founded

America faces a war of values that will determine its future and likely decide if it will continue as a great nation on the world stage. Mike Huckabee and Steve Feazel sounds a needed alarm to Christians and conservatives to answer the call to action and push back against the forces that desire to move America from its heritage and founding principles. It is time for God's people to take an active role in the political arena, not with violence, but with votes and voices that proclaim and defend the values that made our nation the brightest light of freedom the world has ever known.

AINSWORTH: THE GOV.'S NEW BOOK IS OUT TODAY!

By Laura Ainsworth

Offhand, I can think of three “Cs” that are really bad for America: communism, corruption, and crime, all three of which are currently being excused and even promoted by the left. In fact, we talk a lot about those three “Cs” often, right here. But Gov. Huckabee has a great new book –- just out –- that’s written from the positive perspective we need more than ever now. Co-authored by Steve Feazel, it’s about the three “Cs” that made America GREAT and must be protected at all costs.

Do you know what they are? Here’s a clue: the title of the book is THE THREE Cs THAT MADE AMERICA GREAT: CHRISTIANITY, CAPITALISM, AND THE CONSTITUTION.

This is the right book at the right time, because America really is in a fight for its soul right now. All three “Cs” are under relentless attack. The book was written as a call to action for Christians and conservatives who look around and can’t believe what they see. This is not a time to be shocked into paralysis but to take an active role in the political arena, to push back against the forces that are trying to tear America away from its founding principles and its heritage. Our nation has been the brightest light of freedom the world has ever known, and it’s time to make that light shine again.

On his weekend TBN show, Gov. Huckabee was freshly inspired about what makes America great after watching Trump’s convention speech from the White House lawn. In his monologue, he talked about the new book as “a fact-filled reminder of the underpinnings of America and its origins,” saying the “leftist loons” who are educating our kids are responsible for their lack of knowledge, as these people are clueless about the role played by Judeo-Christian values in our launch as a new nation. This monologue focused on the first “C,” Christianity.

The Gov. said he’s aware that not all the founders were devout Christians, but stressed that even the less pious were aware “that liberty only lives when people self-govern, and that’s because of the moral code written onto the tablets of our hearts by our Creator.”

People who follow the word of God don’t need to look to an authoritarian government to worship, he explained, “because then you’re free from the bonds of self-centered behavior.”

The Gov. also offered some surprising history I wasn’t aware of, saying that today's secular Ivy League universities generally have their origins in schools devoted to religious instruction. For example, Harvard University was named for a young minister, John Harvard, who died at only 31. So far, a statue of him, seated and holding a Bible, still graces the campus, unless some numb-skulled anarchist has pulled it down.

And did you know Harvard students were once required to read Scripture twice daily and be ready to “give evidence of proficiency of their knowledge of the Bible”? Me, neither. An early school motto was “Truth for Christ and the Church.” Yale students, as well, were required “to live according to the rules of God’s word.” Princeton has a similar religious legacy; I wonder how many students can translate its Latin slogan, “Under the protection of God she flourishes.” How is THAT still on their flag? (I also wonder why they necessarily assume an institution of higher learning would use the pronoun “she” –- maybe it would prefer “xi.”)

Did you know that in 1782, the Continental Congress actually printed Bibles to give to inhabitants of the United States? They thought the values taught in the Bible were essential to the emerging nation. I thought I knew my American history pretty darn well, but this was news to me.

John Jay, our nation’s first Supreme Court justice and obviously one of the founders who WERE very devout, referred to America as “a Christian nation” and said we should “select and prefer Christians” as our leaders. Didn’t know that, either! (Of course, that didn’t and shouldn’t carry force of law; it was just his view.) Gov. Huckabee did say this book would make liberals’ heads explode; I think the part about John Jay might be where that happens.

Later in the Gov.’s show, co-author Steve Feazel sat for an interview. (He joked that Sarah Sanders wasn’t available to co-author his book with him, so he’d had to call Huckabee. He and the Gov. did have a mutual friend but had not met prior to this project.)

This is going to be the book to give your liberal friends --- especially the ones with kids in school --- who just have no clue about the founding of our nation, the “underpinnings,” as the Gov. put it.

Not one to just be “preaching to the choir,” I’d like to add something for the agnostics and even atheists who might be seeing this. You should read this book, too. Even those of us who aren’t as devout as John Jay and some of the other founders should not allow ourselves to be in denial about the role Judeo-Christian values played in the formation of America. That understanding of right and wrong is basic –- it’s written into our law and forms the basis of a society being able to live together, whether or not everyone goes to church or even believes in God. (Obviously, people are not able to live together peaceably in our cities right now, and this is because the traditional moral code is out the window.) Whether or not one believes that God literally gave us natural law or handed Moses the Ten Commandments on stone tablets, we have to treat the Constitution and our system of justice with that same level of reverence if our nation is to endure. The republic itself, our freedom, and the system on which it rests must be treated as sacred. We seem to be far away from that as a nation right now.

EVIDENCE OF VOTER FRAUD

The media repeatedly assure us that there’s no such thing as mail-in vote fraud, and that President Trump’s warnings about it are (say it with me) “without evidence.”

Okay, here’s some more evidence.

The New York Post interviewed an anonymous Democratic Party operative who specializes in mail-in vote fraud in New Jersey and surrounding states. At the link, he describes how it’s done, how ridiculously easy it is, and how there’s hardly an election in that part of the country that hasn’t been touched by fraud, either the mail-in variety or in-person voter fraud. If mail-in voting goes national, every election will be just as honest as the ones in New Jersey. This is one you’ll want to share with all your most smug liberal friends.

    Next time you hear Biden or one of his surrogates talk about how Trump has created the current atmosphere for violent behavior, they need to be reminded. Remind them that the Obama / Biden "go-to- guy" for race relations was nonother that the notorious race baiter / cop hater Al Sharpton.

    The DIMS promote a "green" new deal yet they want to send ballots in the mail. Isn't using such an enormous amount paper for the ballots killing more trees? Is it in line with their "mission" of saving the planet? TIMBERRRRR!!!

    This earth has at least 1,007 more years of survival before it is destroyed. 7 for the tribulation and 1,000 for Jesus' millennial reign.

    The DIMS' green new deal is like the seeds sown among the rocks. It will spring up and die rather quickly.

    One direct question that our President should openly ask to Biden, during a rally or during ANY interview is WHY, when New York, New Jersey, and other liberal run states and cities had up and running field hospitals provided by through our Presidents initiative and hard work, did these paragons of virtue and wisdom NOT use them, but instead, sent active Covid positive patients to rest homes killing over 11,000 elderly patients in New York alone? Was it because our President might get credit for his diligence in saving lives by providing virus isolating hospital capacity during an election year? President Trump, HAMMER THEM with this question again and again. Show the Left the same mercy that they showed the elderly when the governor of New York seeded their rest homes with the death that resulted from their actions.
    Secondly, the Left has shown its colors in agitating, destroying, and intimidating those whom they do not agree with. As they did to those who were returning from your RNC final night, these same radical agitators will most likely be posted at the poling places to intimidate voters, especially the elderly. What are the chances of getting some security at the poles or at least secure cameras that will show who these bad actors are for accountability and justice?

    Rush Limbaugh sums it all up well!!! One thing that sticks out is--the President has not reacted as they banked on his reacting. The trouble with democrats-whatever they are doing and saying, they think everyone is just like them and would be doing as they are. Thank goodness the President isn't "just like everyone." Probably the top reason why is that he's not a career politician, which is a major reason why I voted for him. Our country is no longer lead by "good ol' boy" politicians who are out for themselves and don't often think of the citizens. Yes, he' negotiate--but it's not the old negotiation like drove me nuts--the democrats putting out what they want, they expected Republicans to "compromise" by giving in to those demands--and way too often that is what happened.

    I read/listen to the democrats accusing the President of all the things that THEY are doing. Of course, those who only listen to msm possibly might think it's true, but sane, thinking people can see right through that. Hope more of the latter get out to vote (Republican) and the former all stay home--perhaps being afraid to go out because the rioters might get them. I'm also hoping all the goofuses carrying on about the President are like a good number of the 30ish crowd I know--they are all talk, but aren't going to bother voting by mail or in person. Several years ago when voting fraud was brought up--there is a usually quite intelligent person I know who insisted there was no voter fraud to speak of. Then, we get reports of all the fraud that HAS been going down (hint--it involves more that "a few" people.) The "there is no voter fraud" people don't have an answer--valid or inane--about why there are states that refuse to purge their voter rolls. IMO, they need the names of people dead or alive, living there or not, to use for illegal votes.

    The Biden Talking points from the other day is nothing more than a farce in slow motion. Trumps America Has $ waiting for its citizens if they want to earn them. Mobs can use theft as a way to obtain items that's Bidens world Biden himself is a very good thief and has taught his family the art also. Biden's failure to understand local policing is at the city Hall of the cities. Trump is president of the United States not the President of local communities if the DEMS want that to change DEMS will see a positive build of their slum cities store fronts with glass and not particle board how is the window shopping in Bidens world? Biden and his Dems are as miserable as they were when I watched them 3 years ago and their misery has intensified since i reported the last time. I have offered a cure to the miserable left many times to give Conservative approach a chance if you are addicted to hate maybe a change of scenery is in store for you North Korea is looking for Americans with communist ideas along with Russia and China Iran hates America live where you feel wanted I suggest Iran first, the Lefties will rock their world. Iranians love to hate America ,burn American flags 24 hour 7 days a week party. Thats the travel slogan all aboard Bidens warriors don't waste another minute here in America. MAGA Visit and stay in Iran.

    I would like to know why a normal person would want Kamala Harris to be the President of the U.S.A. Every normal person knows that Biden will not be the President. He is just being used to get the Obama administration back into the White House.

    I appreciated Tammy Bruce's comment about the Dems' blaming Donald Trump for the riots because he has according to them (and certainly according to the Portland mayor) created so much hate and division. She pointed out that this is the classic abuser's argument - that their victim is responsible for being beaten, because they are so hateful (or whatever). Blaming the victim. When OJ said "I am not responsible for the murder of Nicole...." he meant that SHE was responsible.

    It's either sad or proof that public school indoctrination in this country isn't a new phenomenon, but people with whom I grew up and many on the left actually DO believe Trump is the worst thing to ever happen to our country.

    As for where much of the vitriol and lies originates, I dare say we only need to look back to the 44th POTUS and his treasonous & seditious OFA.
