By Mike Huckabee

CUOMO IS THREATENING THE PRESIDENT

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is openly threatening the President of the United States, which I thought used to automatically trigger a visit from the Secret Service.

Cuomo’s comments are a nearly unbroken string of threats, personal insults and factually false statements unbecoming of anyone holding public office, much less a Governor. These range from blaming the state’s high rate of COVID-19 deaths on Trump’s “negligence” (Trump insured that New York had no shortage of ventilators or hospital beds, while the deaths were acutally due to Cuomo forcing nursing homes to take in virus patients) to claiming that New Yorkers have never respected Trump (I remember when he was synonymous with New York, and he fixed and reopened the ice rink in Central Park that Democrat politicians had let fester for a decade.) Cuomo is even wrong about Gerald Ford telling NYC to “Drop dead.” That was a New York Daily News headline that Ford never actually said.

By threatening the President and saying that New York City is unsafe for him, Cuomo is also giving Trump the perfect argument to invoke the Insurrection Act, if he wanted to. I’m sure at this point, many Americans are so fed up with the Democrats’ dangerously insane behavior and their tolerance for violent, communist mobs that they are more than ready to “send in the Marines.” But as Kurt Schlichter explains, it’s not that easy. The locals will have to solve their own problems by throwing the bums like Cuomo and DeBlasio out of office.

ANTIFA SUPPORTER KILLED

Michael Forest Reinoehl, the neck-tattooed Antifa supporter suspected in the murder of a Trump supporter in Portland, was found last night in Lacey, Washington, by a task force of federal agents. When they attempted to arrest him, he reportedly tried to pull a gun, and a federal officer killed him with one shot through the chest.

This happened just minutes after Vice News posted an interview he gave them in which he tried to justify the murder of the Trump supporter by saying, “I did not hit anyone innocent…I had no choice. I mean…I had a choice. I could have sat there and watched them kill a friend of mine of color. But I wasn’t going to do that.” For the record, there is zero evidence that the person he killed was threatening anyone. The murder was captured on video, and the victim was just walking down the street when Reinoehl shot him in cold blood.

There are a lot of things that could be said here, but I’ll refrain from saying them because it’s a tragedy that anyone would place idiotic political views over the sanctity of human life. I’ll just say that Reinoehl’s fate was the end result of a lifetime of choices, and at every step of the way, he made the worst ones. Let us hope that anyone who’s thinking of glorifying his rotten actions will think long and hard about the consequences.

In a side note, in a brilliant end-run around Portland’s local leftist leaders like the DA who refuses to prosecute rioters and people who assault cops, some Portland police have been deputized as federal agents and are now able to arrest people to hold them on federal charges that the local loony leaders can’t dismiss.

THE THREE Cs THAT MADE AMERICA GREAT: CHRISTIANITY, CAPITALISM, AND THE CONSTITUTION.

Forces on the Left seeks to fundamentally change our nation by disregarding the principles upon which it was founded. Members of the media and liberal politicians seek to damage our economic, political, and educational systems for their gain. The Three Cs That Made America Great: Christianity, Capitalism, and the Constitution: Huckabee exposes the Left's plan to undermine the Christian values on which the nation was built

  • reveals how attacks on Christianity are part of the political agenda of Liberals
  • provides a clear understanding of capitalism and how free markets benefit all people
  • reveals how Liberals undermine capitalism with their socialistic policies
  • shows how the Constitution’s purpose to restrain government and protect individual liberty
  • unmask the efforts of the liberal Left to subvert the power and relevance of the Constitution
  • exposes the current corruption in government and culture
  • which undermines the principles on which the nation was founded

America faces a war of values that will determine its future and likely decide if it will continue as a great nation on the world stage. Mike Huckabee and Steve Feazel sounds a needed alarm to Christians and conservatives to answer the call to action and push back against the forces that desire to move America from its heritage and founding principles. It is time for God's people to take an active role in the political arena, not with violence, but with votes and voices that proclaim and defend the values that made our nation the brightest light of freedom the world has ever known.

FROM THE "ABOUT DARN TIME" DESK

Attorney General Bill Barr is reportedly planning to bring an antitrust lawsuit against Google as early as this month. I’m not linking to the original story in the New York Times because they devote more space to questioning Barr’s motives and timing than to the undeniable merits of the case. So instead, I’ll link to a conservative site that has the necessary excerpts to tell the story without the big side dish of leftist spin.

Now, what about Facebook and Twitter?

LESS THAN INSPIRING

In an inspiring demonstration of real leadership, Joe Biden went to Kenosha Thursday, two days after President Trump already did it. But it did not go very well. He received a tepid welcome at best, which was a fair response to his tepid performance. At one point, he ad-libbed a tasteless joke about how he couldn’t reveal his tax plan “because they'll shoot me.”

Biden also inspired his backer to fight by declaring, “There’s certain things worth losing over, and this is something worth losing over if you have to — but we’re not going to lose.” He's another Knute Rockne.

Perhaps the worst moment came when a citizen questioner let the cat out of the bag by admitting that she’d been “told to go off this paper,” but she thought he needed to hear the truth.

Is this how they plan to get him through the debates: by writing all his questions in advance and handing them out to the moderators? I’m sure some of the moderators would be just fine with that (see “Donna Brazile/Hillary debates”), but the audience is likely to spot it. Particularly if they accidentally get them out of order and Joe starts answering questions before they’re asked. If that happens, they’ll probably try to explain it away by saying it shows what a forward-thinking leader Joe is.

MAIL-IN VOTING DEBACLE NEWS

The results of Tuesday’s Democratic Primary in Massachusetts’ 4th Congressional District are still unknown. Only 1377 votes separate the two candidates, but the previously estimated 600 uncounted mail-in ballots have now somehow become 3,000 “newly-discovered” mail-in ballots.

Just think, if we listen to the Democrats, this could be coming soon to every election in America. There’s a new meme going around the Internet that I think is a perfect response: “If Nancy Pelosi can safely get her hair done in person, you can safely vote in person.”

POSITIVE ECONOMIC NEWS

Another positive sign that the economic kneecapping the Chinese coronavirus delivered to our economy was only a temporary setback: This morning, the Labor Department announced that 1.4 million new jobs were created in August. The unemployment rate fell sharply to 8.4%, the first time it’s been below 10% since March.

One financial expert said things are moving in the right direction, but it may take a while “and likely a vaccine” before the economy gets back to where it was at the beginning of the year. Or more likely, it will take getting past the reelection of President Trump so that blue state mayors and Governors no longer have an incentive for keeping their own economies shut down. Although by that time, most of those businesses may have already relocated to red states.

    Andrew Cuomo is ignorant, irresponsible and a failure at his job. He should never again be in any governmental position.
    As the saying goes, "you live by the gun, you die by the gun" so the Antifa team member, created his own demise by his actions. It's frightening, these people can openly voice, to committing the most alarming crimes without any remorse.
    Joe Biden is is being used as some sort of facade. The radical left has a hidden plan in mind. I am embarrassed for him whenever I hear him talk. He is not well. I think that he will collapse physically and leave the race and whomever is the one that the left really wants, will then take his place. There is trickery here folks.
    great news! Mr. Barr is going to handle the dirty Google entity. While he is at it, he needs to apply the same to Facebook, Twitter, and then the fake news is next!
    We all must vote in person! And I am positive the Democrats have all their cheating activity in place and are already using it as we speak.
    Thank you for the positive economic news!!!

    I wanted to let you know, Mike, that the other day I contacted the my local Library and suggested they purchase "The Three Cs That Made America Great: Christianity, Capitalism, and the Constitution" and they have agreed to do so. Others across America should do the same at their own public libraries. I think I will later also suggest it be added to their Digital Library.

    In regards to Cuomo's remark's. I live in upstate New York. I'm embarrassed by Gov. Cuomo's remarks. If I had said that in public I'd expect the Secret Service to be knocking at my door ( and rightfully so ). He knew exactly what he was saying.
    And If I recall right President Trump left NYC for some place...uhhh...oh yeah The White House!
    Oh! And when has Gov. Cuomo actually resided in the Governor's Mansion in Albany, NY and not in NYC?... You know. The State Capital!

    Governor,
    I'm glad you have a new book out. However, I'm wondering why you are selling in on Amazon, even promoting Amazon.

    Amazon is making BILLIONS ( with a B) every day BECAUSE OF THE LOCKDOWNS!!

    AMAZON is perpetuating the lockdowns which are harming our Country, our Small Businesses, our NORMAL.

    Jeff Bezos is using his BILLIONS supporting Black Lives Matter, ANTIFA, not to mention attacking our President.

    Governor, you're either part of the solution or part of the problem.

    Which are you?

    Sincerely,
    Joan Saltz

    Mr. Huckabee, you are being far too nice. Cuomo is guilty of treason or treasonous behavior, which has been normalized by Congress. You have the means to consider this and spread the truth. Don't hold back. You aren't doing anyone any favors by doing so.

    It's a sad day for America when a legally elected governor of an American state goes public with a threat on the life of a legally elected American President and threatens his life "if he visits one of his largest cities". This is treason to me and should be treated as such by our Attorney General.!!!!
    God help us.

    I am very concerned about the upcoming presidential election. All of these" suddenly discovered" mail in votes remind me of the midterms. Republicans were winning, and all of a sudden new votes were discovered and a democrat won. There was a man that works for the democrats on the news this morning that said democrats will win the election. At the end of the election at the end of the day it will look like Trump won the election, but more votes will be discovered to show Biden is our new President. I've heard that statement made by several people. Does Barr have any plans to STOP the vote harvesting?

    I was reading the conservative news on the Internet when I saw that viewership to the NBA has dropped. I just want add my comment when I first saw a professional basketball team on the ABC network with "black lives matter" printed on the playing floor, I turned it off. Since then I've noticed three other NBA games with the same statement on the playing floor.
    I believe these kind of statements are political, racial, and demeaning to all races. Therefore, I have decided not to watch any professional basketball games.

    "....mail-in ballots have now somehow become 3,000 “newly-discovered” mail-in ballots." Last I reviewed, Mike, there are several states that will be running "mail-in ballots" for the coming election. The 'criminal Clinton' "won" the popular vote in 2016, albeit primarily through two states, CA and NY. I have long had NO faith in our 'vaunted' (not) American Electorate. That 2018 mid-term election put an exclamation point to my pessimistic view of our electorate! Said all that to say, with the DemonRATS pulling out all the stops to 'win' this election, by hook or by crook, the re-election of President Trump is no foregone conclusion and people better get WOKE.

    BTW, re-electing this president will do little except continue the slow crawl in getting anything done for "We The Serfs," without putting the likes of Pelosi (Pelosick) and Schumer (Scrumer) out to pasture! Also, it has been four LONG years where are the "perp walks" for those Obama Administration criminals?

    Mike,

    I must say I find it almost ironically, but sadly, comical that you have the audacity to levy the charges against Cuomo of making threats, personal insults, and making factually untrue statements, especially as you said from someone in elected office, when your own personal guru, Trump, the sitting President of the United States, has made that into his own veritable dysfunctional art form in a class of its own. I’m no fan of Cuomo, but your comments ring hollow and pale in comparison when thinking about all the things Trump has said and done in the last almost 4 years in office that apply far more closely to the charges you levy against Cuomo. I find it hard to understand how you and other die hard supporters of Trump can continue to live in such willful denial of what is right there in plain sight for anyone with eyes to see and ears to here, and do it over and over again. Mind boggling to say the least.

    There was a .FOX comment submitted saying that the police are guilty of mistrust of black people not systemic racism because of the high crime rate and the high murder rate in black communities. That is probably the truth of the matter. Often actions betray our prejudices. This does not make any kind of racial bias right, but it is perhaps understandable as we are all flawed humans. Certainly there are racial biases among people in all walks of life but the police unions make it hard to fire anyone. At the first hint of a racial comment or action indicating racial bias, the cop should be put on probation, assuming the action did not result in bodily harm. A second occurance would result in automatic termination. That’s how you weed out bad players. There needs to be more social type street parties and gatherings with neighborhoods and their police. It is very hard to maintain prejudices once you get to know people on a one to one basis. Have games for the kids in which the police participate. Have the young men and women actually talk with, or even have civilized debates with, the police. Talk to each other about your fears and frustrations. In other words act like good human beings. Our blood runs red regardless of color. Some juice, coffee, tea, crackers and cheese, and cookies would not break the bank.
