"CUTIES"

A lot of people who are paying for Netflix are starting to reconsider what their money is supporting after the channel added a film called “Cuties,” about a dance troupe of scantily-clad, twerking, highly-sexualized pre-teen girls that critics are denouncing as just short of pedophile porn.

A spokesman for Netflix claims the film is a “social commentary against the sexualization of young children,” but it begs the question, do you really have to depict the sexualization of young children in order to take a stand against it? I agree with his comment against “the pressure young girls face on social media and from society” to act like sexualized adults, but do they not see how viewers might assume that pressure now includes Netflix?

If Netflix wanted to spur societal action with this movie, it has. The hashtag #CancelNetflix is trending on Twitter, and a Change.org petition to remove “Cuties” and cancel Netflix over it and other programming that exploits children and mocks people of faith has, at this writing, garnered over 610,000 signatures. So congratulations, Netflix! Mission accomplished!

JOB CREATOR JOE?!?

Some more food for thought for those who believe Joe Biden’s claim that he’ll be better than Trump at creating jobs: two new studies looked at the ramifications of Biden’s vow to ban fossil fuel leases on public lands. They estimate that it would cost 62,000 jobs in New Mexico, 120,000 jobs in Texas and 200,000 jobs across the Gulf Coast region. That would also result in billions of dollars in lost revenues to those states.

But hey, don't worry. I’m sure they’ll all be replaced by jobs building windmills!

IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS THINKING OF VOTING DEMOCRAT...

I keep hearing about people, particularly suburban moms, who will vote for Biden because they don’t like Trump’s brash style or pugnacious personality. Frankly, I think that a lot of them, who vote primarily based on protecting the safety of their families, must be thinking harder about that as they watch the violence and anarchy in Democrat-run cities, Biden’s long silence about it, and the threats by the radicals to bring it to the suburbs (you can sense the suburban trepidation by looking at skyrocketing gun sales figures.)

But if you know someone who is still thinking of voting Democrat simply because Trump sends mean Tweets, then please share this article with them. It’s by someone who admits that he doesn’t like Trump’s personal style, either. He says he doesn’t want to vote for Trump. But he’s going to, because, like it or not, the only way to vote for policies that preserve what has made America great and that make sense for all Americans instead of policies that will destroy this nation is to vote for Trump.

It's time for all voters who care about America's future to do what all thoughtful people do: ignore Twitter and vote for Trump.

U.S. DISTRICT COURT RULES AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP

A three-judge panel of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York unanimously ruled against President Trump’s efforts not to include illegal immigrants in the Census counting that determines how many House Representatives states get. So if you live in a state with fewer illegal immigrants, you’ll get less representation in your own government than a state that’s let in a lot of illegal immigrants to overrule the wishes of actual US citizens.

https://www.newsmax.com/politics/trump-newyork-supremecourt-illegalimmigrant/2020/09/10/id/986352/

This is yet another reason why we need four more years of Trump. Because putting Biden and the Democrats in charge will stack our courts with judges who would prioritize illegal aliens over the rights of US citizens.

On that topic, here is a newly-released list of 20 people that Trump would consider nominating to the Supreme Court in a second term. They include solid Constitutionalists and even a couple of Senators: Ted Cruz and Tom Cotton, to help make liberal heads explode.

Trump also called on Joe Biden to release the names of judges he would nominate, but he said Biden hasn’t done it because they’re so far left, they couldn’t withstand public scrutiny. Or maybe his campaign hasn't told him who he'd nominate yet.

THE NFL RESUMES

Last night, the NFL finally started its season, with the Chiefs and the Texans debuting the League’s new ultra-PC, social justice, pro-BLM attitude – and it’s safe to say that it was not a hit with fans. The NFL gave us SJW slogans painted on the sidelines, and the “black national anthem” before the real National Anthem. Yet despite the severely limited crowd, when the Texans didn’t come out during the National Anthem, and several Chiefs linked arms while Alex Okafor knelt and raised his fist, the reduced crowd’s booing was still plenty loud enough to be audible on TV.

The booing got the expected reaction from the leftist Twitter trolls, who accused those who booed of being racists. I have a word to describe that claim, but I don’t use language like that. These people (most likely never NFL fans anyway) can take their straw man and go stuff it. The booing wasn’t because football fans are pro-racism. It’s because they’re fed up with paying good money to be accused of racism and of having one of the longtime unifying, non-political, all-American events ruined by leftwing political grandstanding that disrespects America.

Nobody’s telling the players they can’t say anything they want when they aren’t on the clock. I wonder, if those people criticizing the fans went to buy a car, and the salesman said they couldn’t take a test drive until they sat through his speech about how great Trump is, would they respect his First Amendment rights or would they go to the manager and demand that he be fired for inflicting his personal politics on customers in the business place?

And did it never occur to these players that as people who have become millionaires for playing a game, what ingrates they appear to be when they insult the fans and the nation that’s given them such incredible blessings and opportunities? Did it even occur to them that they were showing disrespect to the flag and the National Anthem on the very eve of 9/11?

I think one of the best comments I saw on this came from Free Republic commenter smvoice, who wrote, “I hope these (bleep) owners and players are haunted with memories of the good times when the stadiums were filled with die-hard fans excitedly doing the Wave. Then I hope they find themselves looking through the classified jobs ads and suddenly remembering they never learned to read.”

LINE OF THE DAY

This is a terrific article by Michael Thau that digs into the data on the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus to show that the government’s reaction to it has been deadlier than the virus itself.

But even aside from the massive amounts of information that you likely won’t see anywhere else, this deserves a click just for the best line I’ve seen all week:

“It’s the Dem panic and not the pandemic that’s responsible for the high death tally.”

THE REAL SPIRIT OF 9/11

A big salute to these Huck’s Heroes, the US Army pilots who were told it was too dangerous to go into the smoke-filled canyons and save 300 campers from a California wildfire – but they went in anyway – twice!

    Governor,
    "Cuties" is NOT "just short of pedophile porn", it IS pedophile porn, simply because of the ages of these girls. They are still children.

    When I see the Phoney NFL, NBA, MLB SJWs do all of this public display, I get sick! When I see them out in the inner cities working on the real problems. I will consider watching again.
    I would be interesting to see how these Role Models stack up. How about publishing their criminal records compared t regular citizens. Ans BTW how many out-of-wedlock kids have they fathered?

    Mike,

    I wrote to you back in April with the observation that PanDemIc is nothing more than Panic with a Dem in it! So, I'm happy to see Mr. Thau's article alludes to Dem panic and stupidity as helping stoke all this mania.

    Michael Thau's article provides more of the rationality and hard facts we have been clamoring for since March when all this lunacy and the authoritarian clamp downs started. Shamefully, voices of reason and rationality have been systematically ignored, stifled or vilified since then, because they didn't fit the Left's narrative and agenda to dump Trump.

    Thanks for sharing the info.

    FBI should do research into sports owners....who would have thought that owners of teams in the Unites States would finance a MARXIST organization. Marxists are not supposed to own property so all the kids owning $100 sneakers have to give them away. It's the left thing to do!

    More good commentary from Governor. The democrats have to steal this election away from us. The Democratic Party is caught in a vise, one side you have the radical leftist that have taken over the parties messsaging and on the other you have the rioters, looters, blm and antifa who they gave their blessing too. Now then the only way to appease both sides and get out of the vise they are caught in is to get Beijing joe and commie Harris in the White House by what ever means necessary. This way they implement the radical lefts agenda through sleepy joe and appease the thugs they endorsed by implementing their social justice changes. And in the process destroying the country we all and honor so dearly. Failure would mean the end of the old guard who are so desperately trying to hold onto power. Remember this, they made PRESIDENT TRUMP their focal point, they are really after us for rejecting them in 2016. So it is the democrats who have basically put themselves in a no win situation by trying to cater to everybody. The clock is ticking and each day the vise is turned a little tighter on them to come up with a win

    Governor,

    I've had it with football teams that will disrespect our flag and our nation itself. If football teams want to kneel, let them kneel. If they the teams want to hide like cowards in the locker room until the anthems are over, let them.

    The NFL should recognize, and I'm sure it does, that millions of Americans will simply BOYCOTT this game as I intend to do. I've had it and I've drawn my line in the sand and the NFL crossed it. They're done. I will occupy my time with other pursuits. I survived before football, and I'll survive without it.

    Cuties? Disgusting exploiting young girls.
    Joe Biden will kill the economy if God forbid he's elected.
    I don't watch sports & I'm glad. From what I'm told about the Black National Anthem & pro BLM has no business in sports. If you want to protest then do it on your own time.

    It’s sickening to realize how dumb many judges are when it comes to their judicial decisions. How can they justify including illegals in the census count? Totally illogical.

    The following message from a friend echoes my feelings:

    "In just two months, it will be over. The U.S. presidential election, I mean. Not the end of the world. But if things go the wrong way in this election, it could mean the end of our nation as we have known it.

    No, I will not be voting for Biden.... I am not voting for a man. I am not rallying for a personality. I am not pushing a person. At this point, I am voting for one thing and one thing only. I am voting for the principles for which this country has stood since its founding. I am voting for Constitutional government. I am voting for a strong and viable military. I am voting for a vibrant economy. I am voting for the right to keep and bear arms. I am voting for the freedom to worship. I am voting for a national recognition of the founding of our nation on Biblical principles. I am voting for the ability for anyone to rise above their circumstances and become successful. I am voting for my children and grandchildren to be able to choose their own path in life, including how and where their children are educated. I am voting for our borders to be open to everyone who enters under our law and closed to everyone who would circumvent or ignore the law. I am voting for the Electoral College to remain in place, so that a few heavily populated liberal centers do not control the elections. I am voting for a Supreme Court that interprets the Constitution rather than rewrites it. I am voting to teach history, with all of it’s warts, not erase it or revise it. I am voting for the sanctity of life from conception to birth and after.

    Now, there are some things I am voting against. I am voting against open borders. I am voting against a rampant welfare system that enslaves it’s recipients. I am voting against socialism, in all of it’s forms, including health care, redistribution, reparations, economics, governmental control, pedophilia, and criminal releases, etc. I would rather pay for prison reform than see the criminals released to repeatedly commit the same crimes!

    So, although I don’t give blanket approval to everything our President has done or said in the past, I do support him as our president! I am not voting against Joe Biden, but I am voting against everything that the "party" backing him and propping him up stands for. It is not the Democratic Party of the past.

    Two months is all we have but my decision is made."

    I don’t understand why no one has commented REPEATEDLY that if black lives really mattered to these overpaid millionaire sports players that they would actually do something to help blacks. Like maybe get their hypocritical azzes out and clean up black neighborhoods, help rebuild black businesses that have been destroyed/burned down, put money into building charter schools, etc. Kneeling and joining arms DOES NOTHING FOR THEIR BROTHERS AND SISTERS. Such ridiculous nonsense. These are not role models.

    My question/remark has nothing to do with your article today; however, I read & enjoy all your articles even when I have to go to mikehuckabee.com. Do you know or can you find out who is paying hospitals to list 'cause of death' as covid-19 on their death certificates. I know of several people whose death certificate listed covid-19 when they actually drowned. The hospital says they get money for all they list this way. Thank you for your help.

    Governor Huckabee,

    Thank you for sending your newsletter, supporting
    Illegal immigrants should not be counted in the Census under circumstances, ever.

    As for ‘Cuties’. This program is unacceptable. Some three years ago, we subscribed to Netflix, however, we seldom watched the movies or programs, so I cancelled our subscription.
    In the meantime, I am learning their recent programming is less than desirable and this is the straw that broke the camels back.
    I say, if you have children or grandchildren please don’t subscribe to Netflix.
    Comcast’s new customers or upgrading service requires you to subscribe to Netflix, so I keep our old service and won’t upgrade.
    It is sad that even companies make you take packages and include items you don’t want.

    Have a Great Weekend!

    I am not certain how we could know how many illegals there are in any state considering there isn’t even a question of citizenship on the census form. I don’t know why there isn’t a citizenship question. They have made it plain to all who received a census form that all information in confidential. So how does it hurt even to say “I am illegally here in the U.S.”

    We are living in the greatest nation in all of history and yet we are being told— we— us folks who have worked for everything we have and been through both good and bad times— we are being told everything we thought we were happy about is wrong! Everything here is horrible! We are supposed to be sad and angry about anyone other than ultra successful athletes or actors or popular-liberal only- tv personalities— everyone else including me are / have been wrong about feeling good about what we have accomplished and how proud we are to be in America. And it’s been shoved down our throats now for several years that “we” have to “accept” what “they” say is what we should accept as the new world— men going into ladies restrooms— women getting to trash their unborn child like it was an ingrown hair being removed because “it”— the unborn child— would have been “inconvenient” at this point of their lives— and what could possibly be wrong with an adult getting up close and personal with a child if it feels good for the adult? We are dangerously close to being told we have to accept pedophile life “ styles” as part of just another way to be expressed in your own life! Unconditional love doesn’t mean accepting everything or everyone or something that is obviously completely wrong and highly detrimental for any society to go along with! We have been told that we have several genders and everyone has to agree with them or it’s YOU who has the problem! Sad times in MY America for sure but I’m not going to roll over and say ok do what you want! Wrong is wrong period and I will never accept anything but what I know is right. Poor little sports players getting paid gross amounts of money to put on a show that does nothing for anyone but entertainment and yet they “feel” oppressed by all that money—er— fame—er— wait-what is oppressing them again? Something happened two or three hundred years ago? Let’s all read a real history book and see just who was never ever ever “oppressed” at any point in time! Give me a break will ya! I don’t have a mansion, several— big fancy cars— a full time trainer— get a twitch and get several doctors to check me out— please please please someone come and “oppress me”!! That way I get to crap on the American flag and National Anthem and I still get all my perks and get accolades thrown at me for my doing nothing else but entertaining people who will look up to me because I make lots of money and that will make me more important than anyone else! Try getting a real job and making ends meet and doing something that might make America better for everyone! You ain’t curing cancer or world hunger— you are living a dream that you worked for and that’s it. Nothing else. Good for you. Glad you had talent and found it. Quit being a jerk about the very county that’s been giving you everything you could possibly want. Stop being stupid and enjoy the success and quit acting like everyone else is a bad person because these people actually are the only reason you are where you are! We are called fans and we don’t wanna hear anything anymore about anything but the game- you do remember you play a game—and that’s all we car about when we watch! Its a great distraction for us from the real world and the jobs we do— for that I thank you but keep the politics out of sports please.

    I saw a short clip of "Cuties", it's totally disgusting. Exploiting young girls in this manner, is beyond words. It's definitely pedophile porn. Do these people have daughters & would they put them in a movie like this? God will have his day in court!
    Joe Biden & company will destroy everything President Trump has done. They'll destroy America.
    This judges are totally wrong in counting illegals in the 2020 census. They're not US Citizens. Another liberal court! NO NFL HERE!
    God Bless all those souls lost on this day, 9/11, & will ever be remembered for years to come. The brave souls on flight 93! Sacrifice & brave Americans who saved so many lives.
    Also, a shot out to all those brave firefighters in Calif., & now in Oregon. Lord, please keep them safe & the citizens too.
    One other point, I was in awe when I heard the people call out "I Love You" to the President at his rally in Michigan.

    My brother, who has been a lifelong baseball fan, (has loved the Dodgers since they arrived in LA), is an Air Force Vet and a retired deputy sheriff replied to me about a Dodger vs Rockies game: I’ve not watched baseball at all since opening day when I saw Black Lives Matter painted on the pitching mound. I’ve periodically checked out scores and the standings and I may start watching and paying attention before long but Black Lives Matter is nothing but an anti-police, anti-government, Marxist organization and seeing that on the pitching mound at Dodger Stadium just pissed me off tremendously to the point that I don’t want to support baseball this year at all.

    Mike,

    I feel that the army pilots who flew in and rescued the campers should receive a medal of valor. We present medals for military personnel who show heroism in battle and this sure was a battle against the fires and to save American lives. Perhaps this should be suggested to President Trump. If I had his ear I would suggest this to him. It shows real Americans, not those who disrespect our flag and values, but those who risk their lives for each of us. God bless them and all who serve us whether in the military or as first responders.
