Evening Edition - February 18

February 18, 2020 |

Mike Bloomberg is learning every day that no matter how much money you have, you can’t hide behind a barrage of commercials and dodge the ritual vivisection of your past. That just comes with the territory of being a Presidential candidate. His latest verbal landmines to bob to the surface:

In 2011, while promoting an initiative to help minorities in the workplace, Bloomberg opined that there’s “this enormous cohort of black and Latino males” who “don’t know how to behave in the workplace” and “don’t have any prospects.” Also, if you’re elderly and get cancer or some other bad disease, he thinks you should just die instead of expecting any expensive medicine.

Lucky for him that blacks, Latinos and seniors aren’t important parts of the Democrats’ voter coalition.

Least Surprising News of the Day! A Pew Research Center study found that Democrats who use Twitter are far to the left of Democrats who don’t use Twitter. Gee, what was their first clue? Was it when Democrats on Twitter called them racist, homophobic, transphobic, white supremacist Nazis for conducting the study?

------------------------------------------

In a hopeful sign for Virginia, a Senate committee voted to spend a year studying a so-called “assault weapons ban” passed by the House rather than advance it. Maybe the Democratic state government is finally sensing, from the giant angry mob outside the door, that they’re pushing their radical agenda too far too fast. Naturally, this didn’t stop the bill’s sponsor from declaring that without the ban, he fears “mass murder” with these weapons, despite the following facts: 1. Weapons such as AR-15s account for a small fraction of all gun deaths…2. A national assault weapons ban was allowed to expire because there was no evidence that it made any difference in crime rates…3. This bill would have done nothing but make law-abiding legal gun owners into felons.

At the link is more on this story, along with some comments that offer similar responses to the bill’s sponsor in even more colorful ways.

---------------------------------------------------

I know that socialists think everyone’s property belongs to them, but Bernie Sanders’ campaign is putting a new twist on it. They’re urging people to join “the largest grassroots campaign in the country — Operation Win at the Door,” to help elect Bernie. One problem: the reason “Operation Win at the Door” is such a large grassroots campaign is because it’s already been around since 2018. It was started by Young Americans for Liberty, a nonprofit student Libertarian group, which says it’s knocked on over 1.5 million doors and helped secure 56 election victories, and I’ll bet none of them were for socialists.

The YAL sent Sanders’ campaign a cease-and-desist letter threatening a lawsuit. Hey, don’t think of it as intellectual property theft, think of it as redistributing your intellectual property to them. If that excuse doesn’t work, the Bernie people will need a new name for their door-to-door campaign effort. I’d suggest “All Your Stuff Belongs To Us,” but feel free to offer your own suggestions in the comments.

--------------------

In a good sign for civil discourse, rock singer/songwriter Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders wrote an open letter to President Trump, asking him to stop the extradition of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to the US. Surprisingly, it was a respectful letter that mentioned her father’s love of Rush Limbaugh for her letting him use “My City Was Gone” as his show theme for years, citing that as an example of how it’s the American way for people who don’t see eye-to-eye to disagree “without having your head chopped off.”

https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/pretenders-chrissie-hynde-trump-rush-limbaugh-presidential-medal-freedom

Whether you agree with her defense of Assange or not, she deserves applause for the respectful and civil way in which she stated it. Her fellow liberal celebrities could certainly take a lesson from her, as could her angry fans on social media who probably want to chop her head off for opposing chopping your political opponents’ heads off.

Here’s my open letter to Chrissie Hynde: if you really believe in having civil discussions with people of different political views, you have an open invitation to be my guest anytime on “Huckabee” on TBN. I promise you a friendly welcome and a courteous conversation about whatever issues are important to you. Of course, you’ll also have to sing “My City Is Gone” and let me play the bass part. Deal?

    “I've been wondering lately if God has finally reached the limit of His patience as He watches Planned Parenthood continually murder all the precious children He sends to us. We must remember the last time He lost his patience. Think water...lots of water...I mean TONS of water...so much so that there was only one family left to get things started again. I'm beginning to think that CCP is our punishment for not getting rid of an outfit that uses out-and-out murder to get enough money to buy Lambourginis, big houses, expensive travel and all kinds of other stuff. Who knows how many geniuses have been done away with; babies who never had a chance to fulfill the purpose for which they had been sent to earth? God never said that His patience would last forever. True, He gives us plenty of time to make the right decisions, but in the end, when He can see that we are simply NOT listening, He lowers the hammer. That's why I'm beginning to think He has lowered the hammer on this country. I know various and sundry people will not agree with me, but in this case, I really don't care. I happen to know from my personal experience that God does, indeed, exist, and that He is watching us ALL the time. I pray this current situation will be the turning point in our attitude as a country; that it will be the turning point in re-thinking our attitudes about lots of things. I've heard it said recently that when this is all over things will be better. I certainly hope so, but it's going to take a lot of courage and a lot of fortitude to make that happen. After all, we still have youngsters to think of who will want to have a country they can be proud of; a country that will be safe to live in; a country that will have recaptured the dream of our founders. I'll close with two admonitions: 1. Stop the hatred. It's self-defeating; it produces nothing of any worth whatsoever; and ultimately it kills everything it touches. And 2. Pray like you've never prayed before; pray if you've never prayed before. God will hear you, and if you're sincere...He'll answer your prayer. I say this because I know it works.” Just thought you'd be interested to know that this comment by FB got me censured with a threat that I would be banned. As a matter of fact, a couple of ordinary posts were stopped and they had nothing to do with anything of any great import. But...people who post hateful, nasty, filth-filled, slanderous posts continue to besmirch the website.

    This election is again very important the nation needs the House to become Conservative for many reasons 1 Immigration needs reform 2 The Budget needs to cut a lot of spending thats just a starter The need to care for people breaking into our country is unnecessary if one breaks into my property do I have a responsibility to feed, house, give medical assistance, etc. for a person committing a crime against me? No as a point of interest i can disable that person for doing so for the intent is to harm or steal, It is required by aliens to ask permission to come into our country what are people missing here? When laws are broken you may be put in a cage jail call it what you want and the process begins. No hotel no rewards basic holding facility wait in jail till a hearing and it should be at the criminal's expense what ever the cost is to the taxpayer should be applied to the criminal. If not a citizen no taxpayer legal assistance. I enjoy the culture of others as it fits our Constitution people from around the world have good ideas to offer and people from around the world have horrific ideas we need to sort it out. MAGA in enforce Immigration law to come here legally.

    Good very early morning, Governor Huckabee. I believe the Sanders door to door campaign should be renamed "Win. Then TAKE the Door. (and everything else...)" After all, it's for our own good. Someone else might need that door more than us, and besides we already have a door in the back. Until someone else needs it more... I hope his back door receives the boot very soon!

    The law abiding citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia have a year's reprieve on their guns, but you should check and see what the Virginia General Assembly Democrats are now trying to push down our throats. We are turning into California. Jesus, give us strength and grace.

    Dear Mike Huckabee,

    I just love reading your column and pass things on to my friends. You make it so very clear and funny at times, too. Your humor helps we cope with this crazy political scene of today.

    I recently noticed, and how could one not, at all the ads Bloomberg is shoving out on tv. Let's just buy this election! One ad that they keep repeating is Obama talking and I do believe it is from a past segment of Obama's administration but not sure. Obama says in the ad something like: And when at a time when Washington is so divided. Well, that was interesting to me if the time is from his administration and not him speaking that currently about Pres. Trump because the Dems are always saying it is Pres.Trump who is dividing the country. That would mean and I know it is true, that Obama did have division under his administration and it wasn't/isn't just Pres. Trump. That might be a good thing to bring up for Pres. Trump's campaign that even Obama said there was division while he was president. Maybe that could be passed along if you think it to be of interest to the President's campaign. One would have to know, however, if it is Obama speaking currently or from a past segment of him speaking on his administration.

    Just a thought.

    I really like to read your "evening edition" as well as your other "editions" and emails when you send those out, however, it seems they have gradually become more of a page of ads with some news and comments. I'm guessing you make more money that way but it sure distracts from the message/information, almost to the point of being annoying. Just saying.....
    Other than that, I appreciate the information and your comments.

    The influence of China has affected most everything we hold necessary in this country. The Media Hollywood,Congress, Senate, University's, Pension Plans, Drugs legal and illegal, Trade, IT,How did China get a stronghold on important aspects of our country? Ask people like Bernie Sanders Mike Bloomberg, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Diane Fienstien, Nam Bleumenthahl, Obama, Biden, and so many more of our lawmakers if you were China what would you do you would bribe lawmakers of the United States to get where you want to be in the case of China it wants world domination should we fear China YES But we need to fear OUR lawmakers MORE without the bribery of our lawmakers China remains 3rd world. China thanks our lawmakers for all they do to help harm the United States. Drain the Swamp free America from China MAGA

    Your words, "citing that as an example of how it’s the American way for people who don’t see eye-to-eye to disagree 'without having your head chopped off, '" bears witness to how foreign the American way is TO Americans in this present day and age .....THE TRUTH OF WHICH IS WHY OUR KIDS TODAY cannot disagree with one another WITHOUT chopping each other's head off via using a gun to do it!!!!......

    And just look at the Democrats who, in the name OF "the American way"....as it is so defined in the Constitution...cannot disagree with their President WITHOUT ....like our kids....also chopping his head off via doing things TO him..like drawing up articles of impeachment...and saying hateful things ABOUT him!

    Because Democrats ARE motivated by hatred, they do not have a clue to the REAL kind of love that is not ABOUT agreeing with!

    About the assault weapons, I think they need to be disband for they can't be used for hunting and it would be bad for drunks to have them. I ask people who have them if they keep them by their side while at home. The common answer is....no, I keep it in the hall closet or where ever. Ok, now how much good would that weapon be if some attract person should bust through the door? Huh?

    Bernie's followers mantra: "What's ours is ours and what's yours is ours also." (Original paraphrased.)
    They call it "sharing", "spreading the wealth", and "equality".
    I just wish Bernie would put up a few of them at his three homes. That and support them all.

    Mike, I love your newsletters and your show every Saturday night. Only thing better would be you being our president. The issue I'm worried about right now is William Barr, how we tell him please do not resign, you are doing awesome. Also it's not about him, it's another way to tear down President Trump going through Barr. Also, Barr is rooting out a lot of bad stuff, not in dems favor.

    "Also, if you’re elderly and get cancer or some other bad disease, he thinks you should just die instead of expecting any expensive medicine."
    I suppose that Bloomberg would fund the expenses if one of his old chronies couldn't afford to buy the treatments. That could also happen when President Trump gives Hillary the Medal of Freedom. So by his standards, if you're rich, you can possibly get old. I wonder if he thinks that he's not old because he is rich. Wait, what? Liberal logic.

    I have two things on my mind and if i knew how to get the message to president trump I would send it to him directly.
    He needs to start action on removing the GMOS from our food supply . They are full of poison and we have to eat them every day.There is no reason for them that I see except they are making money using them for the giant companies that make them ,and it is very unfair to the citizens and making people sick
    The other is buying our medications from communist countries when we could make them safely in our USA .Should be common knowledge commies can not be trusted.Perhaps you could start some action on these problems for they are both as dangerous as bullets and bombs!

    People are so quick to criticize the Clintons (all of them). I think the republicans need to take a broom and sweep around their own door.>>>People are so quick to criticize our duly elected President Trump. I think the democrats need to take a broom and sweep around their own door. I am tired of personal attacks. >>> My personal opinion is that President Trump is standing by God's people the Jews. I believe God is working to help the Jewish Nation to be blessed by us so that we can be blessed by God. This nation must get back to it's own mission---which is why we were formed. I believe we were formed for two reasons---(1) to spread the gospel of salvation through faith by Grace and (2) to stand behind the New, Yet Ancient Land of Israel. I would remind all that it was a Jewish Banker that clothed & fed Washington's Army at Valley Forge. >>> I cannot deal with the current politics. It upsets & I realize it is the efforts of people such as Mike & former Pres. Carter, though I don't agree with him in all things I do agree that he has genuine Christianity and that is what I want and pray for God's Holy Church---to be HOLY. REPENTENCE STARTS AT THE HOUSE OF THE LORD. GOD BLESS EACH OF YOU TO NIGHT AS WE REST IN THE ARMS OF GOD. WITH LOVE FOR AMERICA AND THE REALIZATION THAT AS ISRAEL GOES SO GO WE.
