MORNING EDITION

June 13, 2020 

By Mike Huckabee

"LORD OF THE FLIES"

I told you this week about CHAZ, the so-called “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.” It’s six blocks of Seattle that a group of Antifa radicals have taken over and declared to be their autonomous territory and “cop-free zone,” as city and state officials have once against turned a blind eye to their lawlessness. There are reports that they’re demanding “taxes” (i.e., extortion) from businesses unlucky enough to be located inside their occupied zone. Some of them were members of Occupy Wall Street, which pulled similar tactics until the rate of robbery, rapes and filth finally forced even blue city officials to let the police go in and clean them out.

Ironically, the first thing they did was surround their “zone” with barricades to keep unapproved interlopers out. That’s right: to keep their autonomous territory secure, they BUILT A WALL!

As mentioned yesterday, they offered to redistribute their food to the homeless, who promptly ate it all, leaving them starving and begging for donations of vegan meat substitutes and soy products (boy, there’s a surprise.) It took them just two hours of running their own “country” to discover that when you just redistribute other people’s wealth, you quickly run out of it. Their parents sure wasted their college tuition.

But it gets worse: without police, someone had to keep order and supply security. So it took less than a day before one radical “hip-hop artist” declared himself to be a warlord and put together an armed force that was reportedly going around threatening people. They were allegedly caught on video beating a young black man who was tagging a wall with graffiti, breaking his glasses and telling him that if he complained, they’d blow his brains out.

At least now, we know what will replace the disbanded police in Antifa’s post-America Utopia.

Meanwhile, here’s the official account of what’s going on there, from the Seattle Times. Their benign write-up makes it sound like a group of young idealists throwing another Woodstock, and just “trying to take our community back” (they certainly know how to keep graffiti off it.) Sample quote: “The movement — loose, egalitarian and scattered for now — seemed to hearken to previous moments of social change.”

Funny, it sounds more like it hearkens back to “Lord of the Flies.”

AND THE HYPOCRITE COUNT CONTINUES TO RISE

And the hypocrite count continues to rise: Just like the L.A. city council woman who’s pushing a $150 million police budget cut, Sen. Kamala Harris not only supports that cut, she also used the L.A. Police for her private security detail at public events, media appearances and a party. She cost taxpayers an estimated $50,000, until a new police chief put a stop to it. So why don’t we just consider cutting off Sen. Harris' freebies to be the first $50,000 cut from the police budget?

INTERESTING READ

Interesting read by Scott Johnson at the Powerline blog: a history of “revolutionary theater” in the Democratic Party, from the ’60s to today, and a look at the history of Antifa, which seems to have seized the wheel of the party along with large sections of various deep-blue cities. They are much stronger now because they’ve not only had years to grow and recruit and bully their critics (while Democratic city officials turned a blind eye), but now those same officials are too frightened of them to stand up against them.

The article also includes this interesting tidbit that might come as news to the Minneapolis City Council members who want to disband the police department. The city charter requires “that the city maintain and fund a police force (‘of at least 0.0017 employees per resident’). Any move to abolish the police would have to be submitted to Minneapolis voters in the form of a proposed charter amendment.”

Not that any officeholders in Minneapolis pay any attention to laws anymore, but if they have to put that “abolish the police” lunacy to a vote, I wonder how many voters would endorse it? That is, if they dared leave their barricaded homes long enough to go to the polls.

THE GEORGIA PRIMARY 

After a looong count, Jon Ossoff has finally crept up to 50.5% of the vote in the Georgia Democratic Senate primary, avoiding a run-off with one of his two rivals. Ossoff has never held elected office and is mostly known for raising a staggering amount of cash, mostly from outside donors, and blowing it all by losing a special House election.

Ossoff spent primary day the way all Georgia Democrats are apparently required to these days: complaining about the voting process. He might want to concentrate more on how he’s planning to beat incumbent Republican Sen. David Perdue when he could barely convince half of Democrats to vote for him. Maybe he’s planning to take the Stacey Abrams route: get fewer votes than his opponent but declare himself the winner anyway.

IMPORTANT

Joe Biden announced that he wants a Vice Presidential candidate who will be ready to become President on day one. There are two obvious reactions to that:

1. Every VP candidate should be ready to become President on day one;

2. In Joe’s case, that’s reeeeeeally important.

BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY (KJV)

"Let all your things be done with charity."

1 Corinthians 16:14 (KJV)

    Talking about education this fall it is time for a year to put all colleges over 3500 students on line watching our young people react The last 3weeks tells me nothing is getting thru to them in the form of civics common sense the population looks like jungle animals on drugs my hope is give the lawbreakers a court date and hold them accountable. Normal people should not have to be near them online you do not worry about safe spaces students may get a look on line about the other way of life capitalism’s not always socialism maybe the students may find America is a country of giving building inventing prosperity and non racists give the young people back where life is work freedoms and a good reason to be an American.

    I thought you might want to talk about the first thing the CHAZ nation did? It was to construct a "fence" keeping out those who were not invited. I thought to myself about our national borders. Do we not want to admit those who are not invited or those who do not have permission to be here(there). I thought democrats were for open borders!! Again very two-faced because it does not fit their narrative.

    It would be interesting to find out just what the graffiti was that the Antifa radicals found so offensive. Maybe it was MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN or perhaps TRUMP/PENCE 2020

    After watching the police knee Floyd for so long I mentioned something is wrong here not because of knee on the neck but the look on the face of this cop. The look told me he has confidence he was going to get away with Floyd dying with his knee on his neck. Although the public had it all figured out charge him, trial, and hang him; the public doesn't have clue what is going to happen in court because of its haste. 2 medical exams 2 different outcomes reasonable doubt the AG is is a Antifa advocate and an accused woman beater do U think bias may come up? chance for the case to be dismissed a lot of foreign substance found in Floyd's body and he had the Wuhan Virus the country has cause of death while having the virus as a Covet 19 death whether a bullet went tru his head or not, this is not going to be a bang bang trial you think it is. your guilty case because of the rush to justice, you may not get the guilty verdict. deja ignorant savages you were rushing to their own demise of a guilty verdict learn about due process.

    All the focus on todays Police force is negative and the reason is evident. With that being said, I think with every negative I believe the police department does so many more things positive. The people look for reform from the police does the same people looking for reform ever think of reforming the criminal? When do we reform the Rapist the Murderer the person that steals the Drunk Driver the person selling the deadly drug to your kids and the addicts the child molester the Human trafficker you get the picture when the criminal reforms, the police department will be better, my point reform the criminal and 99% of your problem will be gone, focus on the criminal they are what brings the police into action. Oh by the way when the policeman pulls you from the burning car or saves you from danger please don't ask them to reform.

    I LOVE your TV show. Never miss it.
    #1 Tonight, I noticed the former police chief of NYC never mentioned that the Police Union's influence was responsible for the murderer/officer on the Minneapolis police staff. Their contract was written so that horrible officers would be impossible to get rid of. They have tremendous protection...So, blame the union. Powerful union. And, blame leaders of the city of Minneapolis...for agreeing to such a stupid contract.
    #2 Why wasn't the word 'freedom' EVER mentioned tonight concerning the spiritual warfare we are in?? Helping yourself to your neighbor's refrigerator contents isn't the worst part of socialism. LOSING OUR FREEDOM is! I cannot believe this was not mentioned. Did I miss it? My personal opinion. . . socialism is only the first step. The groups behind antifa, BLM, & etc., are aiming for Marxism or worse....eventually. Maybe Totalitarianism? Please delve into these things deeper.
    Get into WHO is so anti-America, anti-freedom. Huge $$$ is behind it with an "experienced organizer" at the helm. Any names come to mind??
    Be careful, stay well. God bless America, land of the free! (At least for now.) Thank you for all that you do. Keep up the good fight! We will pray for you and all the staff, of course, and for your audience's physical return to the theater, soon. Blessings to you and yours. c j mclain

    Re the Autonomous zones: All services from US companies should be shut off from the area and Border Police should put up a checkpoint to turn all commerce and visitors away until they agree to tariffs etc for their goods. Utilities should also be shut off for the area. They have to have passports to enter or come into the US. Wonder how long the residents will put up with that and kick them out themselves?

    I think occupied Seattle should be ignored and let every complaint from the occupants go to the mayor and governor. The inmates have obviously left the asylum so lets corral them in this one. Another topic. Why isn't the real truth told about why (is it Admiral Milley?) said he regretted walking with the president to St. Johns church. "They" say he hates Trump, maybe, but this is not why he regrets walking with Trump. The truth needs to be widely reported.

    America Needs JESUS ! A person who is really Born Again will NOT steal, kill or destroy other peoples lives. I'm not a "judge", just a fruit inspector. If we can't love our brother & sister who we have seen, how can we love God who we haven't seen?. A real Christian tells the truth. A real Christian will NOT kill unborn babies or vote for those who do. God is Love, but, there are 7 things God Hates. Don't believe me ? Look it up in Proverbs.

    Questions: 1). Is CHAZ, (the independent country(?) within Seattle), receiving Seattle city services?; 2). If there is a 911 call for police received from within CHAZ will the police respond; and if they do, what happens if they are denied entrance?; and 3). Since the people of CHAZ have in fact formed an independent country and no longer consider themselves part of the United States of America, (their signs state, "You are now leaving the United States of America"), shouldn't their citizenship be revoked?

    See Karl Rove's comments on Fox News last week about the elections in Atlanta. Stacy Abrams on the "view" <I do not capitalize things that are utterly foolish and senseless> tried to indicate the long lines and the "voter suppression" in two of Atlanta's precincts were the Secretary of State's (SOS) fault for not having the right voting equipment and was ultimately Brian Kemp's fault for what he left to the new SOS. Come to find out from Mr. Rove, each precinct is responsible for the election process and purchasing and providing appropriate and reliable equipment. The two precincts are both controlled by demoncrats. On precinct had 3 to 1 demoncrats and the other was 6 to 0 demoncrats. Stacy Abrams has never had her facts straight from her lose to Brian Kemp to her fact about the voter suppression in Atlanta's two precincts.

    Concerning Nancy Pelosi wanting to remove statues of Confederate Soldiers and leaders;

    If a man dwells on the past, then he robs the present.
    But if a man ignores the past, he robs the future.
    The seeds of our destiny are nurtured by the roots of our past.
    We must learn from the successes of our past and we must learn from our mistakes from the past.

    Where are all lawyers that should be suing the city of Minneapolis and the States that allowed the looting and the fires and the destruction of buildings and defacing of property that they would not put out because off streets were allowed to be blocked by Humans. Violations by law and the Mayors and Governors are sworn by oath to protect the city and its people sidewalks are for pedestrians and roads are for vehicles. Unless permits are bought. People should be suing the mayors and Governors for abandonment of their city and states.

    Does anyone get the feeling that we are electing the Speaker of the House as the next VP? Is there ANYONE who wants Pelosi as the VP? Who was the lone Republican who voted for the FOURTH spending bill? Are we ever going to counter the greed of the medical establishment and get HCQ (hydroxychloroquine) approved throughout this country to fight this virus and get this country back on its feet?

    I live near Seattle. The zone they set up would be a great place to create and harvest ballots wouldn't it? Also, the county I live in, Kitsap--Where our governor lives has an interesting situation going on: An email, forwarded to me by a friend from the Republican party of Kitsap County called voters attention to some hanky panky with the voter pamphlet for Nov. Apparently a Republican candidate submitted a background info/statement for the state voters guide that called out Jay Inslee, D Bainbridge Island, Kitsap County in it and refused to withdraw it. The answer to the "problem" was to not have these descriptions/statements in the state guide for ANY of the candidates which means....hanky lanky galore.
