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.
