MINNESOTA MORONS

A 75% majority of the Minneapolis City Council wants to dismantle the city’s police department - not "reform," but dismantle -- a move so insane that even the far-left mayor opposes it. But the council has the votes to override his veto.

Seems like a better solution would be for all the far-left city officials who’ve had a one-party lock on power for over half a century, and created what they admit is a corrupt, racist system, to resign en masse and let someone competent take over. But instead, they want to dismantle the police department amid widespread rioting, vandalism and looting, which is like dealing with wildfires by dismantling the fire department. It's official: Rose Nyland of "The Golden Girls" is no longer the dumbest person ever to come out of Minnesota. At least Rose was smart enough to move to Florida, and I bet a lot of Minneapolis residents will follow her lead.

If you live in Minneapolis, you might want to consider getting out while the getting is good, before you have burglars breaking down your door, and you call the city for help and get a lecture about your “privilege” – I guess in owning something the poor burglar doesn’t own. But with these morons in charge, he soon will. Does that "privilege" claim also apply to black homeowners who are burglarized by white criminals?

Please note, that comment about the desire for the cops to remove burglars from your house coming from a place of "privilege" is not a joke. It's an actual quote from the city council president. But at least she admits it will take years before the utopian "police-free future" arrives and police are no longer necessary. Liberals just have to find a way to perfect human nature and rid it of sin by throwing enough tax money at it.

NY TIMES GRIEF

In the obituaries today, let’s all bid a sad farewell to the New York Times. It has been very sick for a long time, barely surviving on the tattered remnants of its long-decayed reputation. But this weekend will be carved into granite as the date when it finally expired. Not that it won’t continue staggering on, a zombie-like shell of its former self, but it’s now just a dead paper walking and anyone who isn't also braindead should know it.

This weekend, the Times tossed its last remaining shard of journalistic integrity onto the Antifa-lit bonfire by announcing that James Bennet, its editorial page editor, would resign, and Jim Dao, his deputy, would be reassigned. Why? Because they had the temerity to print Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton’s op-ed, endorsing the use of US troops to quell the violent riots destroying American cities.

That’s an opinion shared by 58% of Americans, according to recent polls. But not by the young snowflake staffers of the Times, the generation taught that words they disagree with are violence and must be silenced. And the paper’s upper management, who used to claim to be liberals who believe in free speech, capitulated to their own internal mob. It’s now official: there is no place for any dissenting opinion on the New York Times’ opinion page. And you certainly won’t find any in the opinion pieces they run as news articles.

(If I linked to the Fox News write-up of this, you might think I was being biased, so I’ll let this former Times reporter who disagreed with Sen. Cotton’s op-ed tell you how awful this is).

And I’ll let John Lennon’s son Sean, who’s surprisingly become a rare voice of reason in the music industry, also provide an appropriate eulogy for the Times…

And lest you think I’m overstating the depths of rabid partisanship to which the Times has sunk, New York Times writer Nikole Hannah-Jones (who recently won a Pulitzer Prize for “the 1619 Project,” a widely-debunked slice of historical propaganda claiming America was founded on nothing but slavery) told CNN that the Republican Party is a “rogue” organization, and the media should not treat it fairly by letting its opinions be heard because that would be “picking sides.” So it must pick one side and silence any dissent to avoid picking sides? So much for the value of a Pulitzer Prize.

And what does the New York Times think is “fit to print”? How about an op-ed telling people to stop talking to their relatives unless they publicly support Black Lives Matter? They say “love requires sacrifice.” As Ed Driscoll at Instapundit notes, this demand that you cut your friends or parents out of your life if they don’t accept your extreme beliefs is the standard operating procedure of cults.

The Times has ceased even to pretend being a legitimate newspaper. It’s now an oversized propaganda leaflet, and you should expect no more journalist integrity, objectivity or fairness from it than you would from a Xeroxed manifesto handed out on a street corner by some hairy guy who smells like a cat litter box.

FEEL-GOOD STORY

We need a feel-good story right now, and here’s a great one. In Buffalo, New York, 18-year-old Antonio Gwynn Jr. was so upset by the trashing of his neighborhood by protesters that he grabbed a broom and some trash bags and went to work at 2 a.m., cleaning it up. He worked for 10 straight hours. By the time volunteers arrived to clean up, they found that Antonio had just about finished the job all by himself.

When word spread of what Antonio had done, local businessman Matt Block was so impressed, he saw that Antonio was looking for car-buying advice on his Facebook page, so Block gave him his prized 2004 red Mustang convertible. He didn’t realize how it would affect Antonio, who was stunned into silence because his late mother used to drive a red Mustang.

As word spread, another local businessman kicked in a year of free auto insurance, saying, “I just felt compelled to help him out. We just need to get together our whole city and show people how there’s so many good people here." And Medaille College in Buffalo offered Antonio a scholarship to study business.

Finally, I guess I should mention this: Antonio is black, and Matt is white. But that really should be the least important part of this story.

CORRECTION

We reported last week about a second, independent autopsy on George Floyd by freelance medical examiner Dr. Michael Baden, who contradicted the official autopsy findings and claimed Floyd died by asphyxiation. All media outlets repeated this widely, so we didn't question it. But there have since been objections to the claim that Baden conducted a second autopsy. He watched a video of the autopsy and drew his opinions from that, but did not personally examine the body. Duly noted. We like to get our facts straight so you won't mistake us for CNN.

76 YEARS

Saturday, June 6, was the 76th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, the mass invasion of France that spelled the beginning of the end of Hitler’s reign of terror in Europe in World War II. More than 5,000 ships and 13,000 aircraft joined in support against entrenched Nazi positions on the coastal cliffs. More than 160,000 Allied soldiers stormed the beaches of Normandy. 9,000 were killed or wounded that day, but their courage and sacrifice enabled over 100,000 more troops to start the long, bloody pushback of the Nazis and liberate Europe. It was the biggest military operation in history, and amazingly, it was all pulled together in secret without anyone leaking the plans and warning the enemy, something it’s virtually impossible to imagine these days.

As the architect of D-Day, Gen. Dwight David Eisenhower, said, "I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory!" And that they achieved, no matter the cost.

I held off writing about D-Day until today because I wanted to see whether the commemorations would be able to go forward, with France ravaged and shut down by the pandemic and so few surviving elderly veterans able to leave their homes. I’m glad to be able to say that while there couldn’t be the huge memorials that marked last year’s 75th anniversary, the grateful people of France made it clear that they have not forgotten that sacrifice for their freedom.

95-year-old US Army veteran Charles Shay, who stormed Omaha Beach as a 19-year-old medic, now lives near the beach and was the only veteran able to be standing there at dawn. But he wasn’t alone. A few dozen locals and tourists, some in period attire, gathered to honor and remember those heroes. The theme from “Saving Private Ryan” was played. Later in the day, French fighter jets staged a flyover. And even before dawn, local fisherman Ivan Thierry was standing on the beach, holding up an American flag.

He said, “There is not nobody here. Even if we are only a dozen, we are here to commemorate.”

But even if the elderly heroes of D-Day couldn’t make it back to France, they were not forgotten at home. Around America, they were honored by their neighbors. For instance, in Niles, Michigan, the local VFW presented them with certificates of honor and Michigan challenge coins, and the Western Michigan Gold Star Mothers gave them American flag quilts.

And in Billerica, Massachusetts, the family of John DiClemente, a veteran of both D-Day and the Battle of the Bulge, told him they were taking him to a veterans’ event. It was actually a vehicle parade in his honor by local police and firefighters.

There were many such commemorations around the nation, small but heartfelt. Whether we hold giant commemorations or just local observances, the important thing is that we never lose our gratitude for the sacrifice of these true American heroes, and that as that Greatest Generation passes into history, that we teach future generations what they did and to be thankful for them. We’re currently getting a very harsh lesson in what happens when we entrust that important job to people who hate and blame America for all the world’s ills, and who refuse to teach its real history. It’s time for parents to take that job back.

WORSE THAN SPRAY PAINT

Sadly, this D-Day anniversary weekend was also marred by continuing violent protests, including protesters who scrawled profane graffiti on a statue of Winston Churchill in England and on the World War II memorial in Washington, DC, as well as the Lincoln Memorial (a strange way to protest racism, to desecrate the memorial to the man who led a war to free the slaves.)

I wonder how many of these protesters who hide behind the First Amendment to justify their vandalism and disrespect for these heroes realize that if it weren’t for them and their comrades, they would have no First Amendment rights? I wonder if the protesters in England think they’d be better off today if there had been no Winston Churchill to rally the nation and help plan D-Day and destroy Nazism? Do they even understand what fascism is?

I seriously doubt it. Possibly the most disrespectful desecration, far beyond that of any spray paint can, came from Bernie Sanders’ “foreign policy adviser” Matt Duss, who declared D-Day to be the “largest Antifa operation in history.”

No, it was the largest genuine anti-fascist operation in history. The soldiers of D-Day were real warriors facing heavy, deadly fire; not make-believe “social justice warriors” who expect to be allowed to attack anyone they please with no consequences. The soldiers of D-Day were fighting real fascism, not using fascist tactics to terrorize anyone who disagrees with them (Antifa's definition of “fascists.”) The soldiers of D-Day were greeted with cheers because they were there to bring freedom and liberation, and drive out the people who burned, threatened and looted the neighborhoods. They weren't there to burn, threaten and loot them.

And the soldiers of D-Day, as John DiClemente recalled, were greeted by “good people” in “France, Belgium, Germany and Russia. They didn’t want to fight us. Every time we went into a city, they fed us wine, (gave us) flowers, hugs, kisses and what have you. They were glad to see us.”

Is anyone glad when Antifa shows up? I think many of us will be glad when they finally start showing up in federal prisons.

    I am an 81 year old, a retired Army (24 yrs) and 26 years as a DA Civilian. In my life, I have seen a lot downs in our country, but this time it is a tragedy to what is happening around our country. Where people (idiots) want to tear it down for no good reason and establish anarchy. I gave a good portion of my life serving this great country and I know a lot of veterans feel the same way I do. We are not going to let these people tear if down. We will fight on way or the other to keep these idiots from doing it again. If they want a fight we'll give them.

    The Floyd injustice got me to thinking about right the old Hamurabi code of justice which was summed up as " an eye for an eye and a oth for a tooth" which meant that you got what you dished out. I think the bad cop is a sociopath or a psychopath. I think true and meaningful justice for someone like him would be to inflict the same kind of pain as he served up. You handcuff him and place him facedown on the street and you have a big, strong black policeman place his knee on his neck and apply pressure until he begs for mercy. You would stop short of death bu let him experience what Mr. Floyd experienced. I have had the experience of feeling unable to breathe which led to panic attacks. I now take anti anxiety medication as a result.

    Secondly, on the absurdity of defunding police. That same reasoning would conclude that we defund medical providers because there have been nurses who have taken patients lives by administering lethal medication intentionally. You need to defund nursing homes because some caretakers have taken the lives of clients. You should defund fire departments because there have been instances of actual firefighters starting fires so they could be seen as heroic by extinguishing them and maybe seen carrying out a victim or someone's dog or cat. I think this conveys the meaning of what constitutes a bad idea!

    Governor Huckabee
    Great edit on Antonio Gwenn, JR. that needed to be on TV vs. all the you know what that starts with a B ! We need more young people like him.
    My Father and his brothers were fighting with Patton......they also came back......many didn't, to bad America was busy elsewhere looting and burning! I had my flag out for the brave soldiers and will fly it again on Sunday. We need patriotism, not looting and burning!
    The riots were not about George, they were excuses to act stupid. I lived through the Rodney King Riots in a close way and this is not the answer to problems with blacks or the police. Now who will they call when someone breaks into their home? OH a social worker!

    Thank you Governor for more excellent commentary. What we are all witness to is the biggest government failure this country has ever seen. From the local level up to the federal level our governments are facilitating the break down of a civilized society. We are not at the end of this historical travesty yet. The Chinese virus lockdowns and restrictions, the protesting, rioting, looting and the war on law enforcement will continue. The democrats believe this is the only route to victory in November. Unfortunately many of the younger people of this country are buying into this travesty. The worst part of all this, these younger people are who will be taking the reins of power!!!! Unless the young and older conservatives let their voices speak louder than an ANTIFA rally in Portland, we will be banished to junk heap of other failed great civilizations. The future is now, and we cannot these young radicals shape into their vision of a utopian society that has never worked and never will

    Thank you again for your views on major daily topics. I was so surprised hardly any news about the D-Day, 76 years Anniversary. God Bless each & every Veteran we lost & those few survivors. It's so hard to swallow how destruction of statues & our history, good or bad. What's going to happen to the next generations to come?

    I don't put to much faith in Dr. Baden's opinion.

    Also, God Bless Antonio! We need more of him or her.

    I just can't wrap my head around how this one bad cop has almost destroyed humanity, civility, & everything that every American believes in. I feel deeply for the Floyd family. A horrible death, very sad. His death will bring change & hope the change will be for the good of all mankind. Right now, this is a political movement playing out. This is just my opinion. Of course, I'm against defunding/disbanding police departments, it's insane. Right now, it's seems that we have to walk & talk on egg shells.
    God help President Trump!

    If the liberal leftist city council in Minneapolis Minnesota get their way in defending the police department, first things first. In a short amount of time should rename Minneapolis to Hell, MN, because it will look like Hell with total anarchy and more burned landscape. Secondly, have 911 auto direct all calls to each city council member and Omar to handle all calls. Thirdly, start helicopter tours to show people what happens when you allow Democrats liberals to run your cities and states!!!! Read article at Town Hall news of the police in Madison, Wisconsin told to stand down while rioting, looting and criminal activity took place.Of course this wasn't the only place that happened. To the best of my knowledge police being ordered to stand down happened in "blue states or cities" under the control of who? DEMONCRATS!!! Americans, even devout Democrats- are you waking up to see what will happen to our entire Nation if Democrats are allowed to rule over the people? Vote against all Democrats! And if you live in Minneapolis or any other Democrats controlled city or state- FLEE, before it is too late. And when you get to your new state- VOTE REPUBLICAN!!!

    When their police department is gone, I would love to see their community leader go out on a call and disarm a man high on drugs and swinging a machete. Or go to a domestic violence call where one is armed. Or how about a call to a place of business where a gang is violently robbing the place. These less than geniuses don't have a clue about how to handle the situation. They will get a rude awakening and the extremely hard way. My husband worked mental warrants for a long time, he is now retired. He never used his pistol nor his fist when he had to go out on call. I remember one case where he got a call at about 2 in the morning. A lady was chasing her husband with a meat cleaver. He was able to subdue her and get her to the hospital. No gun, no weapon. When he got home, his clothes were torn from her fighting him and we had to replace them. There were 4 people assigned to this warrant division and all had similar things happen. But they didn't use their guns, weapons or fist. They had calls for all races, but treated all the same without drawing a weapon. Takes a lot of thought and patience. I wonder if this new community people can do that. It is hard enough for the police and thousands use thought and patience everyday. They are just forgotten and the focus is on the one in a million that do wrong and don't have the thought and patience to do the job. The police do have wonderful training, but some are just not cut out for the job. And millions of people appreciate the police and a few thousand don't until they need help.

    Black Lives Matter is demanding equality. Does this mean, as a businessman, if the black community wants equality, then I don’t need to fill the black quota in my hiring. I now can hire the best qualified employee no matter what race, color, or creed. All the wants the black community is pursuing will set them back 50 years!

    I don't know the source. I can't verify or disprove it. Maybe your staff can.

    EYE OPENING STATISTICS
    Something to think about as we approach our chance to decide what form of government we want.

    Some of you will accept this and applaud, others will reject it as irrelevant or hearsay. Can you hear me clapping???

    These numbers help explain why these last eight years prior to D. J. Trump were disastrous for the USA. I read the last item and then looked at Trump's Cabinet. No wonder Washington, DC is in turmoil. Trump's picks are bosses who expect their employees to work. These are Eye Opening Numbers. This is what bothers a lot of people about Trump. He won't accept a can't do attitude, or inexperienced, incompetent performance. He will get results; it just might not be smooth or pretty.

    Here are some amazing stats: Make sure you read to the bottom. An eye-opener!

    1. These 10 States now have more people on welfare than they employ! California, New Mexico, Mississippi, Alabama , Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, New York, Maine, and South Carolina

    2. Last month, the Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2012, between food stamps, housing support, childcare, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. Household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support. What's the problem with that much support? Well, the average household income in America is just over $50,000, which averages out to $137.13 a day.
    To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for 40 hour week, while the average job pays $24.00 an hour.

    3. Check the last set of statistics!!
    The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet. You know what the private business sector is: A real-life business not a government job.
    Here are the percentages: 38% T. Roosevelt; 40% Taft; 52% Wilson; 49% Harding; 48% Coolidge; 42% Hoover; 50% F. D. Roosevelt; 50% Truman; 57% Eisenhower 30% Kennedy; 47% Johnson; 53% Nixon 42% Ford; 32% Carter 56% Reagan 51% GH Bush 39% Clinton; 55% GW Bush 8% Obama 90% Trump

    This helps explain the bias, if not the incompetence, of the last administration: ONLY 8% of them had ever worked in private business! That's right! Only eight percent - the least, by far of the last 19 presidents! And these people tried to tell our corporations how to run their businesses?
    How could Obama, president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he's never worked for one?? Or about jobs when he has never really had one? And, when it's the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers? They spent most of their time in academia, government, and/or non-profit jobs or as "community organizers."
    I hope you are including DJT in your daily prayers, because if he fails to be President for the next five years, we may never be the same again at any time in the future save an armed revolution, and today, even that would be an iffy proposition.

    You might want to pass this on, because we'll NEVER see these facts in the mainstream media, or from the alphabet networks.

    The Minnesota Moron is not the town's city council president. She is a victim. So too are those
    who agree. These are followers, following the followers. No real thinking here on their own.
    The idiot is the one who writes what students learn in schools & universities.  
    Young minds are programmed by what they are fed. 
    Once we educated students; How to think.  Today's education systems teach students; What to think.   Dumbing down America starts with the school systems.  This needs to be reversed. 
    Private schools are funded by big businesses and are only for those whose families can afford the price tag. All education should be open to all the public with no special classes for those
    who pay. All basic skills first.  Fundamentals as respect, family and friends and doing the 'right thing' comes first.  Self pride, motivation and awareness should not be forgotten.  ABC's/123's
    then applied problem solving.  Who, what, where, why, when and how with logical thinking and
    strong emphasis on creativity.  Not limiting mental growth but stimulating expansion.  
    This young lady owns a recorded brain and has no idea of what she is talking about.  Her words
    are either memorized or she has been totally brainwashed by the educational system. 
    What is a stronger caveat; She has her whole life ahead of her to declare more
    dysfunctional ideas to those who will listen. 
    Without her script she owns a mind of a hollow shell.  What's missing is her 'off' switch.

    Mike, its the police's fault. As long as they universally and consistently insist on arresting criminals, especially those that violently resist arrest, there will be a problem. Hopefully, when all the police departments are unfunded and disbanded, the problem will go away. Perhaps, if all the cities losing their police publish the mayor and city council home phone numbers, a sudden dose of reality will infect the mis-leaders and cause the election of living-breathing officials with a grain of sense. Maybe the House of Unrepresentatives could add a clause to their bill outlawing police resistance to include outlawing criminal resistance since 99+ percent of incidents involving police brutality charges also include criminal brutality against police.
    Is there any way we the people could develop a culture where all Americans could be taught to avoid criminal activity from the cradle instead of trying to correct it in young adults. If the black leadership(?) wants to solve the problem, black on black murders far exceed the white on black deaths, but there is no glory if it is not newsworthy. Tim Scott (SC Senator) put it most correctly when he said this week that its time for both sides to sit down and talk without any press present and solve the problem. Let's hope and pray it works out that way.

    This is no movie...IF there are no or very little police..."Who you gona Call?" Privacy has always been an illusion from day one...Drones to check our "stick figure" medical values" is a great idea as in what's more important your "so-called privacy" or your health? PLUS what I LOVE about drones monitoring everyone...think of the CRIME/ ADULTERY etc. RATE REDUCTION factor...Image this scenario "But officer (oops no police), "BUT Honey, Baby-doll" I was not with that woman...I was on the golf course all day...."Well, why does your stick figure #302 and her stick figure #659 show both you at Sleazzzy motel together all afternoon?" Think of all the positive things that drones tracking stick figures can accomplish...one thing it would do is reduce the number of lawyers needed to defend some sneezzy despicable deplorable person. In addition to drones our security cameras need these stick figure trackers and so do banks ATMs. After all it IT IS for the protection and benefit of us all...Is IT NOT?

    Why is Floyd being used as a hero? The man is a criminal with a rap sheet. All he is being used for is looting, burning and killing police. The police were the real heroes who tried to do to a job and told stand down. The rioters should have been put in jail and made to pay for what they stole and burned. I don’t believe in how he was killed but ways to get your point across. These rioters were just criminals. They are even trying to stop our town from taking a statue that’s being taken down in another state because it’s a confederate general. We want to put it in a museum, part of history, they don’t even have to look at it. Apparently we’re like the police, we have no rights. Your not in America anymore! We have get on our knees and do as criminals tell us. not me!!

    Yesterday, Joe Biden made an appearance in Houston, at the viewing for Mr. Floyd; yet, the MSM did not feel this was just a photo opportunity, unlike their attacks on President Trump's personal visit to the church in Washington, D.C. Double standard? Naw! Plus, the MSM is covering every step of Mr. Floyd's funeral, covering all of the vile attacks and insults from Al Sharpton; but not a word is being said about the ambush killings of 2 police officers in CA, the officer shot in the head and last I heard on life support, or the blatent murder of retired police captain David Dorn. Double standard? Naw!! If not for a Go Fund Me page, the retired MN Firefighter who had invested his life savings into a sports bar in MN, just to have the rioters burn it to the ground; he would be out of everything he had worked for in his lifetime. Oh did I forget, Captain Dorn and that retired Firefighter, were black. Double standard? YEP!!!!!!

    Your editorials and your weekly show are my rock for truth. I am very thankful for both. I watch Huckabee every Saturday night and it is the highlight of my week!! I look forward to it. Thank you!! After reading this editorial I remember I am not alone in my beliefs and lends so much to my understanding of things I would never be able to on my own. "The world" is so upside down, can "upside down" go beyond upside down, what is next? Jesus, that is what! Praise God Almighty!

    D-Day photos should have been front page news instead of all the protests. Folks nowadays seem to have forgotten all the men who died in the water and on the beaches that day.

    The Morons that lead the State Of Minnesota and its major cities believe the format to stop crime is just don't record the the home invasions, burglary, murders, rapes, white collar crime, ponzi schemes, assaults . domestic violence, porn, child adductions, human trafficking, counterfeiting, street violence, car theft, well does one need to go these things happen during the day and during the night with a police force those that commit these crimes will continue; my point is the police keep the people that would like to commit crimes but are afraid of getting caught don't that number is larger than the criminals itself. Just drive your car most people do not want to be ticketed how many times will you see the car going 100 mph weaving in and out of traffic thats what a non police society will look like. So morons of the Minneapolis cit council don't think this defunding and abolishing police thru with no city, what will the council do next? People are getting ready to leave who do you think will want to move in to a lawless city? more criminals. The Council is more than moronic it is just EVIL. And you won't have to guess they will be Democrats if you didn't know.
