Radical protesters heckle Ted Cruz

Welcome to the club my daughter endured, Ted: Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife had to leave a restaurant in DC last night after being confronted by a loud leftist protest group attacking him over Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.  Details are at the link.  The group has the typically misleading and self-glorifying name of “Stop Racism DC” and claims that it fights “Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan.” But I guess that having found no Nazis or Klansmen in a high-end DC eatery, they were forced to bravely attack a Republican Senator of Cuban ancestry and his wife. 

Well, I’m certain THAT convinced Cruz that they had a rational and persuasive argument for opposing Kavanaugh.

Tip of the helmet

A tip of the helmet to recent NFL retiree Matt Forte of the Bears and the Jets for doing something all too rare in today’s divisive political atmosphere: taking the time to see an issue from the other person’s perspective.  While Forte has never joined in the anti-cop kneeling protests, he has been close enough to the issue via his teammates that he decided to see what it’s like to be a cop.  So he went for a ride-along in a police car with some cops in one of America’s most violence-plagued cities, Chicago. 

You can read about what he learned at the link, as he witnessed firsthand the police officers going about their extremely dangerous jobs with seriousness and professionalism, and very little appreciation from the public.  I couldn’t help thinking while reading this that it would be even more enlightening for Colin Kaepernick if he spent a little more time riding along in a police car and a little less time being held up as a role model in Nike ads.

 Box office catastrophe

What a surprise it must be for Hollywood to learn that audiences won’t pay good money for unhinged anti-Trump propaganda like Michael Moore's latest film when they can get the same for free all over the media.  Bonus: Moore has threatened to move to Canada after releasing this movie because of the danger of Trump persecuting him (which I'm sure is at the top of the President's priority list.) 

Yeah, yeah, we’ve heard that promise before from a lot of celebrities.  But they never seem to make good on it. That’s yet another way in which America is getting the short end of the stick in trade with Canada.  Maybe President Trump can renegotiate NAFTA so that we agree to take their exports if they’ll take our leftist celebrities.

Emotional interview

In an emotional interview last night with his wife Ashley at his side, Judge Brett Kavanaugh told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum that he strongly denies all the last minute, “totally false and outrageous” charges of sexual impropriety against him, that he will not withdraw from the Supreme Court nomination, and that he has faith in God and the fairness of the American people.

Kavanaugh said he’s already denied these allegations to the Senate under penalty of perjury, adding, "I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone, in high school or otherwise. I am not questioning and have not questioned that perhaps Dr. Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted by someone at some place, but what I know is I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone." Ashley backed him fully, saying, "I know Brett. I've known him for 17 years. He's decent, he's kind, he's good. I know his heart. This is not consistent with Brett."

http://insider.foxnews.com/2018/09/24/judge-brett-kavanaugh-interview-maccallum-wife-ashley-responds-death-threats

Kavanaugh said, "All I'm asking for is fairness and that I be heard in this process." Unfortunately, as we’ve already learned from Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono, both of those things no longer apply if you are a man accused of a sex offense. You’re just supposed to shut up and admit it, even if you’re innocent. It’s apparently the Democrats' new standard of justice, replacing the old fashioned “rule of law” and “due process” that must be thrown out because they were invented by old, dead, white guys. Something for all men or any woman who loves any man to remember when voting in November.

Kavanaugh also offered up two defenses that I’d wager the Democrats howling for his head never saw coming: First, he actually kept a meticulous calendar of his high school and college years and still has it. It shows that he was away on vacation or busy with other things such as study, sports and church activities during most of the times that his accusers allege he was drunkenly partying.

And he also said that he was a virgin until well after college, and he never had sex with anyone or even close during that time. That’s something I’m certain his Democratic haters never counted on, because it's so far outside their frame of reference: a religious man openly declaring that he was a virgin until well into adulthood.

The left has spent decades swinging a pickax at the foundations of traditional Christian morality. They’ve attacked and ridiculed outdated notions such as charity, modesty, sobriety, self-discipline and respect for the Biblical definition of marriage. They’ve insisted that you can’t stop teenagers from having sex, so you should just give them free condoms. They’ve driven religious expression off campuses and undermined discipline by parents and teachers until they’re expected to be the kids’ “friends” and let them do whatever they want rather than “stifle” them. They’ve argued that it’s somehow empowering for girls to encourage them to binge-drink and have casual sex like drunken frat boys, and anyone who suggests that might be a bad idea is assailed as a “rape victim shamer.”

Then, having corrupted and demoralized youth culture, they seek to pull a 180 and destroy a Republican SCOTUS nominee by suddenly turning into Puritans and accusing him of the same behavior in school that they encouraged and fostered for decades – only to discover that thanks to his strong religious faith, he didn’t fall for their siren song and isn’t ashamed to admit it. It must be shocking for them to comprehend that they weren’t able to corrupt the one person they have worked so hard to attack for being corrupted.

What happens when the media needs a scandal...

Even though they’ve now gone completely off the rails, there were early signs of this politics-as-severe-mental-disorder trend of the left years ago. When I was running for President in 2007, I thought all the vitriolic, divisive campaign ads were detracting from the Christmas season. So I tried to counter it by making a cheerful, non-political TV ad in which I simply told viewers that I didn’t blame them if they were sick of politics, and suggested that everyone put all that aside and concentrate on what the season is really about: Christ’s birth and being with family and friends. I then wished them a Merry Christmas from me and my campaign staff (you can still see it on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/8xn7uSHtkuA )

I thought you couldn’t get less controversial than that, but even back then, there was a huge uproar about the ad from the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself.) Not so much because I actually said the words “Merry Christmas” (today, I imagine I’d be pilloried in the public square for “triggering” non-Christmasy snowflakes), but because of the den set in the background. As I spoke, the camera panned sideways to reveal the Christmas tree behind me, and briefly showed a set of bookshelves that consisted of vertical and horizontal boards crossing at right angles (Incredible, huh? There’d never been such an unusual bookshelf before!) And the edges of two boards crossing at right angles looked like…anyone? Bueller?...a Cross!

The leftwing media went ballistic over my alleged attempt to use “subliminal messaging” to burn the image of a Cross into viewers’ eyes and brainwash them to advance my evil plan to turn America into a Baptist theocracy! News flash, “Party of Science”: “subliminal advertising” is junk science, just like misrepresenting polygraphs as lie detectors (that’s why they’re not admissible in court.) The truth (I’d say “the God’s honest truth,” but that would probably trigger them, too) is that the ad was shot very quickly with no subliminal images ever discussed. I didn’t even notice the alleged “Cross” myself until the media turned it into a scandal. And by the way, even if I had deliberately included the image of a Cross in a Christmas message, how would that be scandalous? But the media needed a scandal to throw at me, so this had to do, no matter how ridiculous it was. Sound like recent history -- like, say, the past week?

At the risk of sounding Pollyannish, I’ll once again quote Pollyanna: If you only go looking for the bad in people, you will surely find it. That doesn’t mean everyone really is bad; it’s just a homespun definition of the psychological term “confirmation bias.” If you assume that everyone who disagrees with you on a political issue is a sexist, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic deplorable, then that’s all you’ll see when you look at them; and it will continually feed your rage and alienation until you turn into the kind of nasty, raving, partisan lunatic who now gets commentator contracts on MSNBC and CNN. It is, to quote another classic, “Inherit the Wind,” a “worm’s-eye view.”

If you don’t want to have a worm’s eye view of your fellow humans – or come across to the people around you as a political worm – then maybe stop spending 24/7 rolling around in dirt.

Google bias

With all the other news last week, I didn’t get around to this, but it should not be allowed to get buried: Tucker Carlson of Fox News obtained an internal email chain in which Google employees discussed how to use the tech giant’s search results to steer users toward pro-leftist sites and anti-Trump sites.

You can watch the story at the link. Naturally, the same Google bosses who were recently seen on video trying to hold back their tears over Hillary’s loss deny that their search results are biased. Why, this was just some employees talking as, you know, employees do. But it is interesting how Google executives went ballistic and fired one conservative employee simply for pointing out that the monolithic, bullying, overly-PC culture of the company was intimidating to some workers; yet their attitude here is so nonchalant, and all the people involved in this discussion are apparently still working there.

As Carlson aptly noted, if you ran a bank and discovered that a group of your employees had been discussing how to rob it, would you just dismiss that as meaningless water cooler chitchat irrelevant to how they do their jobs, or would you fire them before they robbed the bank?

    How do we live with this?! My mind goes over and over it. How can an accusation be and indictment? Ms Ford Said it happened, therefore it did. Sorry, in my mind what she said happened brings out a "so what" in my mind. Any woman, and maybe some men in the world can probably recall when and inappropriate comments or action was directed them, it does not make us go ballistic. But more than that, Judge Kavanaugh has led an exemplary and successful public life, along with 6 - that's SIX - FBI probes into his background. What more do we want as proof. His accusers should be so ashamed!

    Regarding your connection to Christian morality...... I have always been Catholic and was young in the days when being Catholic was a detriment to JFK getting elected. Nothing has been said about Kavanaugh being a devout Catholic, but I wonder if that is also a strike against him by the DEMS? In addition, no one seems concerned that the girl was only 15 when at that drinking party, and Kavanaugh was 17. How is it that a 15 year old girl was at such an small drinking party and the parents never knew what had happened there? Hmmm

    Sept 18th – 24th
    Governor Huckabee,
    I’ve no way of getting this message – “WE’RE WITH YOU JUDGE K AND PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!” – across to Judge Kavanaugh and his family. I don’t know his contact details. Psalm 7; 2 Peter 2:9; Isaiah 43:2 are for him and his family to be used as a prayer and as a Word of Comfort from the Lord. So, I’ve to rely on you to pass this on to the Kavanaugh family for us all. Please somehow let Judge K know that we know and understand the pain and anguish he and his family is going through. We never wished this on him and his family. But we want him and Ashley to stay strong – to trust in the Lord Jesus and with His help endure this temporary fiery trial. Jesus is with them. He knows exactly what K and Ashley and the girls are going through and He will sustain them. There is a purpose for this even though painful. We’re praying for them as well as for Ford, Ramirez and the Democrats. AT ANY COST, PLEASE DO NOT GIVE IN or GIVE UP. I know this isn’t easy at all! BUT, STAND YOUR GROUND AND FIGHT! LET NOT THOSE DEMOCRATS who are BULLYS WIN. GOD WILL USE THIS TO CLIP THEIR WINGS!! THE SENATE MUST CONFIRM KAVANAUGH!
    We’re praying that the Senators like Collins, Murkowski, Flake, Corker and others would stand with Judge Kavanaugh confirm him even though these Senators don’t care as they’re retiring from the Senate and not standing for re-election! Thank you, Governor.
    Yes, to be sexually harassed and assaulted is very damaging and horrible. But in this case from all that I’ve learned about it from outside sources and from these accusing parties, it’s quite obvious that these a case of mistaken identity and blurred memories without proof. These women might have been abused at some point in their early life, but not at the time, place they claim and not by the person they’re accusing of.
    Please let me make few things clear – there are 3 reasons why Democrats are incensed and obsessed with Judge K. He’s – 1) a man who practices his Christian Faith; 2) nominated by Trump; 3) a Republican! Judge K is a man of Faith and it’s quite clear from his demeanour and attitude, etc. This is Democrat’s Discrimination based on religion, gender, politics and political party! We see an emerging pattern in Democrats’ tactics – they’re utilizing the same weapon they used against Judge Clarence Thomas to derail his appointment in the SCOTUS. WE MUST NOT BUCKLE TO DEMOCRAT’S ANY KIND OF DEMAND BUT CHALLENGE THEM TO HALT THEIR EVIL DESIGNS! THEY’RE BREAKING THE 9TH COMMANDMENT “Thou shalt not bear false witness” (which includes false testimony, false accusations, etc.) and indirectly committing murder (character assassination, and trying to destroy the spirit of a man and his family, damage them emotionally, spiritually and psychologically) and therefore, the 6TH COMMANDMENT “Thou shalt not commit murder”!! None of us are faultless for we’re all sinners – but some of us sinners are saved by Grace and try to abide by God’s Laws! NO MORE CONCESSIONS OR EXTRA TIME FOR FORD OR THE DEMOCRATS!
    The world must know that for a serious practicing Christian, sexual offenses is a grievous matter. Not that we’re perfect and don’t get tempted nor have desires, but that Christ our Saviour has taught us that our bodies must be kept clean because they’re His Temple where His Spirit dwells and that He doesn’t want us to be involved in any kind of sexual innuendos because marriage is sacred just as our bodies are, and besides, we’re answerable to Him on Judgment Day. So, we try to be like Joseph and Daniel of the Bible who kept themselves clean because of their healthy fear and love of God including in our teens and as well as being a husband to one woman or a wife to one man! Let me tell you that there are loads of teens & adults who keep themselves free of sexual sins (even minor), from alcohol and drugs or anything that would damage our bodies! Generally, people – especially most Democrats can’t understand that. I speak from my own life’s experience. I came to a living knowledge of Jesus Christ just before I turned a teen! The rest is history! Were there opportunities to wander off the path? Yes, there were, but praise be to God, that He in His mercy provided the strength and courage to avoid such occasions! So, I understand where the Judge K stands and have a fair clean life.
    This is all purely political, and could it be possible a personal vendetta toward Judge Brett K’s mother Judge Kavanaugh and her judiciary days. Democrats deliberately hatched this Ford-Kavanagh plan for political gain. They’re making a mockery of Law and Order and nothing else for they don’t really care about Dr Ford’s feelings or reputation. Ford is one of their tools to bring down Kavanaugh, Trump and Trump presidency and to stop a God-fearing Christian Conservative from becoming a SCOTUS Justice! All this reminds me how Joseph in the Bible and Jesus Christ were falsely accused by their enemies because neither of them gave into the wrongs and there was jealousy and hatred involved! Judge K isn’t perfect, but he’s clean!
    Ford and Democratic leaders shouldn’t be given any extra time to cook up their devious strategies! (Should have scheduled for Tuesday/ Wednesday). They’ve been using the same tactics over and over. They’re stalling playing a cat and mouse game, and being the dirtiest vicious wild alley cats, they’re already shown their affinity for seditious activities, open rebellion, slander (encouraging supporters to act all this out whenever, wherever and on whoever possible), for evil, capriciousness, treachery, deception and lying! They don’t need more time except to delay confirmation plan and to prepare some other underhanded stuff!
    We don’t trust Judge K’s accuser Dr Ford whatsoever who’s a Democratic activist and what-not and can’t remember when, where and who of the alleged sexual attack, etc. She may have had some kind of bad experience but with someone else whom she’s mistaken for Judge K! She’s in cahoots with the Democrats in the making of all this drama, delays and I wouldn’t be surprised if she got paid by DNC, the wicked rich Democrats and whole other stuff that goes with deals like this!
    The burden of proof is on her and not on Judge K. FORD SHOULD BE EXAMINED FIRST AND NOT JUDGE K! If Ford really valued her privacy and wanted it and knowing very well the nature of those Democratic Party leaders and News Papers, she shouldn’t have divulged this to her Representative, Senator Feinstein or to the Washington Post. Hence, she isn’t privileged to have the luxury of privacy/ secrecy during her hearing! This isn’t a secret private matter anymore! It’s world news! So, we want to hear her first hand openly, publicly all what she has to say!
    Sept 23rd – I knew it! Democrats were stalling and delaying the hearing and the confirmation vote so that they can prep and produce the 2nd woman from Yale University! Appalling! Another outrageous Democratic lie! Look at the lawyers and counsellors she has got! All those sleazy crooks who have connection with the Clintons, Obamas, McCabe, etc! That itself ought to tell us what the real nature of the accusers and the accusations are! Vilifyers and liers! I very much fear for my country! Lord have mercy! Let the Lord arise and scatter His enemies!
    Thank you. God bless you. Shalom.

    Tip of the helmet:
    Please be careful, as much as can be, with this particular topic. I went through police training where we did ride alongs and walk alongs as well. and I need to inform you that 1.) you will always be the LAST of the responders to arrive. the police will tell you 1st thing that you are not going to be in danger. 2.) you will only see the police actions that THEY want you / allow you to see. again for your safety. In short, any take a way you obtain from a ride along WILL BE TAINTED!

    Radical protesters heckle Ted Cruz:
    getting tired of the LEFT and their Gestapo tactics. inciting anger , violence, publicly unacceptable behaviour. spitting on people. routing them at dinner or while with their families. It is disgusting!

    The Judge:
    Three now coming forward. All three with claims that are no less than decades old. Then we have the left with their faces in the camera making statements that are akin to, "If you got smoke you got fire"? unless it's a smoke bomb! then what you have is a childish stunt.

    So if I and lets say five (5) of my friends get together and claim we were in a hot tub with Nancy Pelosi, will she resign? I mean since we are not required to prove anything.

    One has to wonder where the management of restaurants are in the debacles. It would seem they would not want the dining experience of other diners even if they might not agree with the target victim. After all, they did allow entrance to the victims--and they are probably people who have spent money in the restaurant on other occasions--and fine dining doesn't come cheap. Perhaps they don't realize they might have lost other customers who do not care for their meal to be disrupted.

    The goal is for no one to want to be associated with President Trump because of fear of financial ruin or not being able to go out to eat or shop, or, worst of, fear for the safety of not only themselves but also their families. Like other stuff going on, someone needs to step up to the plate and arrest people like this and the destructive anti-fa rioters (I know, there have been a few arrests.) Don't show their pictures or publish their names, don't give them their 15 minutes of fame where they can proudly become famous, showing their willingness to be martyrs to the cause. Hmmm...I wonder if those who are arrested would demand due process? What would the outcry be if people were just rounded up, arrested and sent to prison without a hearing or anything? They have financial backers who will see that that doesn't happen. And, we can listen to ol' maxine hollering in front of the camera, I'm sure she and others would have some most intelligent (cough cough) tidbits about the rights of the people she encouraged to act this way.

    Thank you for your newsletter (and the articles also show up on fb) and links to the works of other people. I enjoy your style...I'm from rural KS and you use some of the sayings I've hears forever. And love your sense of humor. I admire Sarah's work as White House Press Secretary and her ability to deflect the actions of some so-called reporters who think they are "all that" and don't have to act decently but think they can steal the show with repeating questions that aren't on topic, or that have been answered but they didn't like the answer. Sometimes they don't even give Sarah the courtesy of letting her answer a question.

    I am not a political person I have been around for 77 years in all these years I have never seen this circus before except for Anita Hill. Now then why the hell haven't the Republican Sennett got the guts to tell Ford's lawyers this is the day she has to be at the Sennett and this is how meetings are going to proceed if she refuses those terms set a date for the confirmation vote. After who running this country Ford and her lawyers? If this is not a conspiracy by the left wing Democrats why did Finstine wait so long to turn that letter so long ? I sure hope the Cal. voters get rid of her when her term is over.

    This statement from the Judge says it all about the supposedly assault. He is showing compassion on someone who is trying to destroy him. We must confirm him immediately.

    "I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone, in high school or otherwise. I am not questioning and have not questioned that perhaps Dr. Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted by someone at some place, but what I know is I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone."

    Hi Mike! Thanks for the belly laugh (Canada quip) - haven’t had one of those in awhile and only seems like they happen when I read your evening additions! I am a dedicated Christian and see this all for what it is, spiritual warfare, and I’m praying everyday for Wisdom and Guidance. I get some from your thoughts ??. Which, right after my belly laugh brought me to tears again over Judge Kavanaughs treatment. Mike, even my MOM believes the media and she’s been a devout Catholic her whole life! It’s hard to see the blindness and not be sad, then I read Luke and see what the Pharisees did to Jesus. So life serves to help me understand a teeny bit of what God must feel while He watches. But I know God has this all in control. I believe he raised up Donald Trump for such a time as this. He was my 17th choice in the primaries but he’s proven me wrong! He says God bless America, he is loyal to Christians and Israel....and he picks GREAT STAFF!!! Sarah is FANTASTIC. I pray for all of them and their loved ones. May God bless America and help us turn back. Raise us up Lord, and THANKS for Mike Huckabee!!!!!

    I love this article! You have a command of the issues and make your points even stronger with your use of humor. You are so right on all points. This should get broad distribution.

    Yesterday you wrote about Schumer being the "puppet master" of the Democrat party - and I agree. But, I suggest we dig deeper and unearth who HIS puppet master is - Soros, Obama, Jarrett - or all of the above.

    Women have endured and fought to be where they are today. Sexual activity was used by some to further their careers and a blind eye was turned. It has also been used by falsely accusing someone of sexual harassment ruining the accused reputation and careers. My husband retired Human Resource VP of a major company. He dealt with sexual lawsuits frequently, the company's policy was if there was any possible truth even without proof he was to make a settlement with the accuser. Many times he would tell me it was not fair to the other party but it was easier and cheaper to settle. This obviously left a report in the accused personal folder and was carried throughout their career at times preventing them from being considered for advancement.

    Re Pauline's comment: Take out "by" in your last sentence and you'll be correct.

    I think all the shake ups in the news right now are a distraction from the FISA declass... what say you?

    Reading your commentaries on a daily basis has become a very healthy habit for me. Since I am now past 80, I have experienced many times of division in the past, but the current divide between the two major political parties is causing me more distress than previous problems. Your wisdom gives me hope that the Lord will somehow help us to unite once more into ONE nation UNDER GOD!

    If their sex accusations fail, maybe they'll condemn him for being un-American (a Christian virgin until marriage).

    Governor

    I look forward to your emails daily. Thank you for all the information. Guess the Democrats think they are so pure and holy? Jesus said, "Let him without sin cast the first stone" Hard to believe all the mountains of stones the Democrats are throwing at Brett Kavanaugh. I one hundred percent he has told the truth. Wonder if that evil woman will appear this Thursday???? She will answer in HELL if she don't stop her lying.

    Christian's are terrifying to lost people. It doesn't take much conversation to know if a person is complacent. Christ and the Bible give us countless examples of the things we should not be involved in. Thank you for all you do to explain the devil has a large interest in mankind. May God bless you and your family for standing tall in the midst of all this foolishness.

    Hey Mr. Huckabee, look into the six Gosar siblings who are endorsing the democratic candidate running against their republican brother, Paul Gosar in the congressional race in Arizona. I know the Gosar family, one of the six siblings very well. It is such a statement of how things have gotten so ugly in politics, completely tearing families apart.
    As a side note, the parents of the Gosar siblings are broken hearted about how the six siblings have turned on their brother and they completely support and endorse Paul and his conservative views.

    Apparently even Socrates had to live with leftists and Democrats way back then......

    Great articles as usual. I will make one correction: Voting in the mid terms for Democrats is DEC.1 not Nov. I'm doing my part.

    Hi Mike,
    I’m concerned about issues and the election coming up and have contributed to a couple of candidates directly. Your PAC and others, are not tax deductible at all. Is there a tax deductible way to help good organizations?
    I get a t least 6 requests a day from different groups, plus ministries. I shred a lot. I’m trying to get off some lists. Give once and they waste my contribution asked no for more.
