The Democrats have no arguments whatsoever for reelecting them.
Last night, President Biden made that clear with a hurriedly-scheduled prime time speech that was widely seen as a Hail Mary pass to avoid total electoral annihilation. The issues of most importance to voters are the economy, inflation, high fuel prices, crime and the open border (5 million illegal crossers since Biden took office, and $5.8 million worth of meth seized from a truck entering Laredo just last Sunday.)
Biden should have used this address to list all the ways that Democrat policies have improved Americans' lives. But he couldn’t because all their policies have been disasters that have made our lives exponentially worse. And so he droned on for over 20 minutes, repeatedly banging away on the same broken drum: “MAGA extremists” and “election deniers” are a threat to “our democracy” (he said “democracy” – which we’re actually not – 37 times. I hope nobody was playing any drinking games based on it or they’ll be dead from alcohol poisoning.)
Yes, the only way to save democracy is to have a one-party system and prevent voters from choosing the representatives they want.
This tattered deuce was the only card he had left to play, and he played it over and over and over, despite polls showing that when he pulled the same “demonizing Republicans” shtick a few weeks ago, 60% of voters found it to be divisive and unhelpful. On the plus side, at least this time he did it without the Nuremberg rally background, and he did magnanimously admit that not all Republicans are a deadly threat to democracy. I'm sure he makes an exception for Liz Cheney.
One difference between this speech and the last one was that Biden repeatedly cited the attack on Paul Pelosi as an example of the violence of “MAGA” rightwing extremists. There has been no evidence so far to tie the homeless drug addict who attacked Pelosi to any Republicans. Indeed, all indications are that he’s a leftist, including the fact that he was on hallucinogens.
But what most irritated many Republicans is the ridiculous canard that all “election deniers” and all exponents of political violence are on the right. Here’s a round-up from Instapundit of prominent Democrats (including Biden) denying the results of elections they lost.
Karl Rove also noted that Biden owes his presidency to Rep. James Clyburn rallying the black vote, and Clyburn was an election denier who falsely claimed computers switched 100,000 votes from Kerry to Bush in 2004.
As far as violence goes, Democrats only seem concerned about it when it happens to a Democrat. I said from the moment the Pelosi attack was reported that I pray for him to make a full and swift recovery. But Biden not only never voiced contrition for demonizing Republicans as a threat to democracy, he just doubled down on it, even knowing that it’s inspiring leftist nutjobs to violence.
He mentioned Pelosi repeatedly, but never said the name Cayler Ellingson, a North Dakota teenager run down with a car and killed because the driver thought he was a “Republican extremist.” He didn’t mention Sen. Rand Paul or Rep. Steve Scalise or New York gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin or Justice Brett Kavanaugh or any other conservatives who’ve experienced attacks or death threats from the left.
He talked at length about the one riot that threatened Democrat politicians, but not a word about the 700+ Democrat-sanctioned riots that destroyed homes and businesses and injured over 1,000 cops, and whose perpetrators were either immediately released or bailed out by a fund supported by his VP. His FBI hounds selfie-taking grannies from January 6th and arrests pro-life activists for praying outside abortion clinics, but there have been no arrests in over 60 incidents of fire-bombings, vandalism and death threats against pro-life pregnancy centers. Biden also didn’t mention the countless other people who have been assaulted, robbed and killed by homeless people, criminal illegal aliens and released repeat offenders thanks to Democrat policies, and not just in San Francisco.
And as far as threats to “our democracy” goes, I’m more worried about a two-tiered justice system, government censorship of private speech, arrests and raids of journalists and political opponents, and calls to do away with the Senate filibuster and the Electoral College and stack the Supreme Court than I am about people demanding that elections be trustworthy.

At this point what more can any intelligent person say about the Democrats in power? You reap what you sow and it’s finally coming back to them who championed anarchy to all things Republican. Ya just had to wait till the ones who kept doing all the riots and lawlessness decided that they were untouchable by anyone and now the “other side” is getting a little taste of their own medicine. Wrong is wrong no matter who gets hurt but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know what was going to happen sooner or later. I can’t say that anything that happened is good no matter who got hurt but I will say “we tried to tell you these people were out of control”! Wrong is wrong and I hope Paul Pilose heals good. If he wants to be mad about it he can talk to his wife and tell her to can the rhetoric before someone else gets it worse! Americans are still better than this stuff. God Bless America. Please. Stop the madness. Get rid of the socialists. Vote please.

Hello, Governor Huckabee. I don't know if anyone has previously brought this forward, but when Joe Biden and the Democrats use their "threat to our democracy" argument/accusation, they are actually talking about we conservatives being a threat to the "democratcy".

Biden is emphasizing election deniers for a simple reason. He is a usurper who stole the 2020 election. The Red Wave he and other Dems fear will mean, at least, investigations and empowering honest judges. Nothing can be more frightening to the head of a criminal cartel than the prospect of justice.

I live in the most beautiful state in the USA, California. No other state can claim all these fabulous wonders: ocean for swimming, very high mountains for skiing, rolling hills, Yosemite, Sequoia, Redwood and other national parks, Lake Tahoe surrounded by mountains, largest supplier of food and dairy products, and sooo much more. Yet, all we get is dissing, even from you! Yes, we have a disgusting socialistic governor and cabinet, crime and many homeless in our larger cities, but other states do so also or are heading in that direction. My husband and I both are 90 years old but even if we were younger, we never would leave California!!! Please, since you were a former Christian pastor, just leave us alone in your comments! I have voted for you each time you ran for President, and I have much respect for you, but for me, enough is enough negativity! Many others, who never have lived in CA nor ever have been here, are making crude remarks, also. Honestly, I believe that many are jealous of all our very many assets! BTW, I am a Christian and a very conservative Republican!

I so agree with your comments about how badly the Dems have destroyed this country and continue to blame it on conservatives. I enjoy reading your newsletters and can't wait to meet you in February on the Israel trip. The Dems have nothing to run on but accusing conservatives of everything the libs are doing. It is shameful. God have mercy on us!

When America First Republicans win the election next week, they need to first do everything possible to fix our economy, including bringing back our energy independence and overturning all of the regulations that the Biden admin has introduced, no matter what Biden does to try to stop them. And once that is done, they need to pass laws to prevent the federal government from EVER being able to use any excuse (pandemics, climates that continue to change as they have for eternity, etc.) to violate our inalienable rights ever again. And most of all, play hardball against the democrats like they have never done before.

Google: "CIA Adam and Eve story " I did and it was very interesting.
I'm 90 years old and don't pay for subscriptions but love your presentations. I may think Trump may be a jerk, but I think he is the best president for the people in my lifetime.

Governor and Sarah.
Big Admirer of both of you.
We've got to get this election right. And go big in the House and Senate.

Mike, do not trust Elon Musk. Everyone is all excited he bought Twitter and gives us "free speech." Elon Musk is not a Christian (check out his fully satanic Halloween outfit) and be aware. He is manufacturing brain implants through his company Neuralink (more information coming from him end of November) -- do not be naive, he is planning on something coming from Twitter that will further his brain implants, not necessarily for the good. Watch. Do not be lulled.
Thank you for all you do to keep us conservatives in the know!! Lord bless!!
