Good article

Good article by Dennis Prager on how a vote for the Democrats is a vote for mass hysteria. This dovetails with a suggestion I was going to make for the perfect Democratic midterm campaign slogan: “We’re hysterical!  Let us drive!!” 


Something in the water 

There must be something in the water in San Francisco…or maybe all the drugs flushed down the toilets when the cops arrived during the 1960s have finally cleared out of the water.  Either way, for some reason, the notoriously nutty 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has handed down two pro-Second Amendment decisions in one week, which must be a new record for that Court.

Last week, a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit backed a San Diego court’s injunction halting California’s new ban on ownership of magazines holding 10 bullets or more, which the NRA argued is unconstitutional.  Now, a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit has affirmed that the Second Amendment protects the right of Americans to carry firearms in public for self-defense, striking down a ridiculous Hawaiian law that asserted citizens only have the right to bear arms inside their own homes. 

Granted, these are only three-judge panels – and the rulings were 2-1, with the two judges who upheld the Second Amendment both being Republican appointees – but two out of three out of 14 judges is at least a start. The 9th has been on a bad acid trip for a long time; we can’t expect them to regain full sanity overnight.

 What Lack of Self-Awareness Looks Like

Former CIA chief and known liar and leaker James Clapper, whose attempts to undo the 2016 election and regular unhinged anti-Trump rants recently reached a zenith when he accused the President of treason for holding a summit meeting with Vladimir Putin, declared that by looking into pulling his security clearance, Trump is being “petty” and “abusing the system.”  

In a related story, a pot called a kettle a pot.



Georgia Winner

In Tuesday’s GOP runoff election for Governor in Georgia, Secretary of State Brian Kemp easily defeated Lieutenant Gov. Casey Cagle by 69-30%.  It was another victory for a candidate endorsed by President Trump, but Kemp also racked up endorsements from a number of other Republicans, including every other candidate for Governor who lost in the general election. 

Despite it being one of the more combative races of the season, Cagle congratulated Kemp, offered his support and urged his supporters to rally around Kemp in November, when he’ll be facing Democrat Stacey Abrams.  She’s the first black female major party gubernatorial nominee ever, but she’s also a hardcore liberal.  In 2016, Trump carried Georgia by about 5 points over Hillary Clinton, so Georgia Republicans will need to fire up their base and turn out to overcome Democratic enthusiasm and the identity politics vote. 



 Things That Make You Go “Hmm…”

A bunch of “Abolish ICE” radicals in Portland, Oregon, set up a camp/fortress that has clearly-defined borders that they enforce, along with rules people inside have to follow.  I think maybe they should go abolish themselves.



 Captain Obvious

For years now, liberals have been selectively editing interviews with conservatives to make them look stupid and calling it “satire.”  But when a conservative site did a deliberately obvious shuffling of an interview with socialist “It” girl Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to poke a little fun at her, leftists were so “OUTRAGED,” they not only didn’t think it was funny, one didn’t even recognize it as satire and took to Twitter to expose it as being misleadingly edited. The responses were hilarious.  My favorite: “Thank you, Captain Obvious!”



AG Sessions update

As long as we're doing a round-up of the latest fake news… Many mainstream news outlets reported that during a high school summit in DC, Attorney General Jeff Sessions joined in the crowd’s anti-Hillary Clinton chant of “Lock her up.”  The video shows that he plainly did not.



Fake news

An Odessa, Texas, waiter who got lots of supportive media coverage after claiming a customer wrote a racist message to him on a dinner check admitted it was a hoax and he wrote it himself.

Bipartisan report

And a bipartisan Senate report found that about half of the government’s public data on federal spending listed at the USAspending.gov website is inaccurate and “riddled with errors.”  


So now, both the government and the media are feeding us “fake news.”  I keep thinking of the Beatles song, “Everybody’s Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey.”  But if you see the monkey on CNN, don’t believe him, either.

    My first thought on the waiter thing was--hmm, think I'll wait this one out, as too many of these "hate" things were actually perpetrated by the person reporting. One being the lesbian gal reporting hate email--and it was proven she wrote them herself. Or, the more recent incident at a KS college with racial slurs being painted on a black guy's car--and it was proven he did that. Either the persons involved want their 15 minutes of fame, or the current news from any network hasn't focused on whatever issue enough lately. Or, maybe both.

    As for clapper and those who are crying about President Trump meeting with Putin--they all need to look up the numbers of previous Presidents who met with the Russian President. My initial foray into this went back to GWB. He and obama were at various summits (G-6's and G-20's type) where Putin was also in attendance. One even listed that obama and Putin had their own meeting at that summit. Putin came to the US on several occasions--am I to believe that the US President (both GWB and obama) didn't meet with him? Hmmm? One was when GWB was President and Putin was in Houston--am I to believe that GWB didn't meet with him? Is Trump meeting with the President of Russia any different that others? Or meeting with any world leader. Some of the others were FDR meeting with Joseph Stalin at Yalta, JFK with Khrushchev, Reagan with Gorbachev, Bill Clinton and Yelstin, Carter with Brezhnev, George H W Bush and Gorbachev, Nixon and Gorbachev, Eisenhower and Khrushchev. Yep, that Trump!!! How DARE he meet with the Russian President. Or Kim Jong Un. I'm surprised there isn't more of a brouhaha about his meeting ANY world leader!!!

    Can the swamp even be drained?--the more we learn, the deeper the slime seems.
    The whole country needs Son shine, which will make the dark seem darker, and hopefully dry up the swamps in our towns, cities, states, and Federal government. But it must start with individuals, families, and churches.
    Hoping someday there will actually be justice coming from the Department of Justice!

    Thank you, Gov. Mike! I think you’ll agree, When Judeo-Christian values are abandoned in the name of “progress,” there’s no limit to how far we can stray from truth, justice, brotherly love, and hard work – the foundational underpinnings of America. Beginning in the Garden of Eden, mankind has generally been “doing our own thing,” which explains what’s happening today in America, especially with regard to rampant distortions of truth, including false accusations, that were predicted to occur during these perilous times.

    Thank you Mr. Huckabee. I find your comments refreshing and right on. Every day I look for them. I am really enjoy them. Please, keep on.

    Why is the media & FOX NEWS ignoring the ARRESTS of high-profile Sex Traffickers in N.Y. (Bronfman) who are deeply connected to Clinton Foundation contributions & supporters?

    This is part of the net of those Hollywood elites who are also part of the organization.

    Security clearances should be removed when they leave/retire from their position/assignment. When I ret'd from the Navy my clearance ended. It's called a "need to know", and once I was gone I had no need to know. Revoke their clearances. They have no further need to know.

    Dear Governor Mike,

    We in Georgia are thrilled with Brian Kemp's victory. I think we can, without a doubt, chalk this up to President Trump's endorsement. Please pass this on to your daughter that Trump's word, that we've come to trust, is valuable beyond expectations. Keep fighting the good fight, and praise the Lord with every decision made! We know Who holds the whole world in His hands.

    What will it take for moderates, independents, and a few sane members of the Democratic Socialist party to realize how insanity has taken over their movement. When people who have been educated in our public schools no longer respect their country you know some real effective changes have to take place. Public Unions and particularily ones that have sway over the education of our children must be dismantled. What may have started out as a good idea has turned our education system into a indoctrination system. If continued you can kiss our Republic goodbye. jack

    I enjoy reading your comments about our "news" and other events. I think that the sponsors of illegal immigrants/immigration should lose their tax exempt status if they are trying to claim that. Similarly, losing security clearance level(s) is due for those who are no longer in the need to know for those who violate the confidentiality/trust aspects of their employer.

    I fear if Franklin Graham and others like you don't start touring the country encouraging sane people to get out and vote in November, conservatives will become complacent due to so much good economic news.
    Also, why is nothing more happening about our Supreme Court nominee?????

    In your opinion "What Lack of Self Awareness Looks Like", don't you mean John Brennan and not James Clapper is the ex-CIA agent. I love your newsletter and ALWAYS get a kick out of reading.
