SENATOR PAUL CALLS FOR FBI INVESTIGATION

Sen. Rand Paul is calling for an FBI investigation and arrests into the radical leftists that threatened all of us leaving the White House last Thursday, and that he believes would have killed him and his wife if the police hadn’t come to their rescue.

Fatuous media figures tried to dismiss Paul’s concerns as overblown (easy for them; they weren’t there – apparently, they think if they cover for the wolves, they’ll be eaten last.) But as if to tragically prove that Paul was absolutely correct, Saturday in Portland, a man at a pro-Trump rally was shot in the chest and killed. The BLM radicals were caught on video cheering a woman who yelled, “I am not sad that a (bleeping) fascist died tonight!” She and all those who cheered murder should be sad, however, that they have lost their souls and allowed their sense of humanity to be dissolved by vicious political hatred that dehumanizes their opponents.

The horrific killing made the media look even worse than usual, if that’s possible. Those who have been denying that the violence existed looked like the fools they are. Those who tried to blame it on Trump looked both foolish and desperate. But perhaps the worst of all were those who subtly tried to imply that the victim had it coming by describing him as a member of a fringe “right-wing” group. Last week in Kenosha, two violent members of the left-wing fringe group BLM were shot dead while allegedly trying to assault Kyle Rittenhouse. Did they have it coming? If so, then why is Rittenhouse facing murder charges? He can at least argue that he acted in self-defense. He didn’t just target someone for cold-blooded murder, like the leftist thug in Portland.

President Trump has been holding off on sending federal troops to these cities because he doesn’t want to take the drastic step of invoking the Insurrection Act. But the useless mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, now has even more blood on his hands for allowing this madness to go on until innocent people are being murdered in his city’s streets just for expressing their political views. I hope the feds prosecute that as a federal hate crime to insure that the perpetrator faces the full force of the law, since I have zero faith that this will happen in Portland. Meanwhile, if an organized radical group operating across state lines to overthrow the government by murdering American citizens is not insurrection, then what is?

And yes, these are not “local grassroots protesters.”

They’re an organized and well-funded anti-American criminal/terrorist group. An FBI investigation might uncover who’s doing the organizing and the funding, and then the RICO Act could come into play.

VOTERS SHOULD MAKE DEMOCRATS ANSWER FOR THE VIOLENCE 

President Trump is planning to visit Kenosha, Wisconsin, tomorrow, and the state’s Democrat Gov. Tony Evers is requesting that he not. In a letter, Evers wrote, "I am concerned your presence will only hinder our healing.” Yes, we’ve all seen the “healing” on our TV screens.

Evers is the latest in a growing line of Dem politicians, including the mayors of Seattle, Portland and Chicago, who would like to blame the out-of-control violence in their cities on Trump. They refuse his help, insisting he only makes things worse, then they proceed to make things 100 times worse all by themselves.

These arrogant know-nothings remind me of a story by the great humorist James Thurber. He once wrote of his aunt, a very headstrong woman who ran a large farm, who decided that she didn’t need any help fixing the broken milking machine; she could do it herself. An hour or so later, she had it dismantled and had no idea how to reassemble it, but she just kept making it worse and cursing and sweating until she finally screamed at her farmhands, “Why won’t somebody take this #!%& thing away from me?!!”

That’s the question these Democrat mayors and Governors should be asking. The voters should answer it for them by taking away their power over things they have no idea how to control.

CHINESE VIRUS UPDATE

Over the weekend, the CDC quietly (but I’ll bet not as quietly as they’d hoped) “updated” the death figures on the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus. The media have been reporting with panic and alarm every new level, until now we’ve surpassed 180,000 deaths in the US (all of them somehow President Trump’s fault, of course, even the huge percentage who died after blue state Governors forced their nursing homes to take in coronavirus patients.)

But hold on, there’s a slight correction to that figure. It turns out there were far more comorbidities than we were led to believe. Out of 161,392 deaths in the CDC database at the time of the study, 94% died of more than one cause. In fact, these victims had an average of 2.6 other causes of death or conditions in addition to the virus, such as flu or pneumonia, respiratory disease, heart disease, diabetes or obesity.

Now, here’s the really shocking part: when you factor out all the deaths from multiple causes to discover just how lethal COVID-19 is by itself to otherwise healthy people, you find that only about 6% of the casualties were due to the virus alone. That’s about 9700 deaths. Last year’s seasonal flu killed over 3-1/2 times more people. You might recall that we didn’t shut down the economy and nail all the churches shut over that.

It’s looking increasingly as if the massive economic shutdown might have been a catastrophic mistake and that a more effective policy would have been encouraging basic safety measures for the majority while only shielding those who were at the greatest risk.

And as long as we’re on the subject of how everything we know about the Chinese virus is wrong (except that it really did come from China), the New York Times reports that potentially 90% of people who tested positive for it had such small amounts of the virus in their systems that they weren’t contagious and didn’t need to quarantine or do contact tracing. But they created a bottleneck that possibly kept serious cases from being identified.

So if all that overtesting is creating deadly delays, what is the New York Times’ solution? As Bronson Stocking at Townhall.com reports, it’s “more testing!”

TRAGIC STORY

Once again, there's another tragic story of a heroic police officer in St. Louis being shot in the head and murdered. This doesn’t appear to be politically-motivated, but I would be very surprised if the overall atmosphere of disrespect and hatred for police, the dehumanizing rhetoric aimed at them and the tolerance of violence against them didn’t play some part in it.

BY ALL MEANS VOTE FOR BIDEN IF YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT THIS...

I saw a poll quoted over the weekend, claiming that suburban women heavily prefer Biden over Trump. I wonder if that’s accurate, or how recent it may be? I've always heard that the so-called “soccer mom” vote was primarily based on which candidate made them feel safest. I cannot imagine anyone thinking that’s the Democrats and Joe “I suddenly decided that rioting and assault are not altogether good things” Biden.

Kurt Schlichter has one of his typically blunt articles on a subject I’ve been addressing here for a long time, and that is how, in the identity grievance group pyramid that is the modern Democratic Party, women are now on the very bottom. Kurt says there’s a reason you’re not hearing any Democrats say, “Women’s lives matter.” He points out that the Party has a history of misogyny that’s just as strong as its history of racism, and in all the attacks on Kenosha police for the shooting of Jacob Blake, media and activists never mention that Blake was resisting arrest for violating a restraining order by an ex-girlfriend who’d accused him of sexual assault.

As Kurt points out, the left’s policy trifecta of defunding the police, prosecuting cops and banning private gun ownership are setting us up for a future where women who are threatened by sexual predators will have nobody to help them but their unarmed selves. If that makes you feel safer in the suburbs, then by all means, vote for Biden.

“If It Weren’t For Double Standards” Dept: The media accused President Trump of racism for making a criticism of Kamala Harris that was identical to the criticism she’d made of him two days before.

    If and when the Republicans retake the Senate AND House, let's pray they're willing to do more than the feckless job they COULD'NT do the first 2 years of Trump's term! They had 2 years with Senate AND the House and didn't really do much but wring their hands and maintain the SWAMPY status quo! TERM LIMITS!!!

    Gov. Huckabee. In regard to women being safe, did you happen to see the phone video of the woman on the subway platform in NYC in the process of being raped?!!! The guy stopped but, sadly, none of the pathetic, so-called MEN holding their phones up to record it directly intervened! Tucker Carlson showed it last night (Sept. 1). Another argument for the 2nd Amendment.

    We need to hold our Nation, Leaders, and Christians up in prayer day and night.

    Re: your comments about the CDC report of deaths related to Covid 19.
    Most people seem to be misinterpreting what was reported. I'm sure there are fewer deaths among healthy people, but there are fewer influenza deaths among healthy people also. People with comorbidities are more likely to die from Covid 19 infection, they are also more likely to die from influenza also.
    It was not an overreaction to take measures to stop the spread of the virus. You might say "hindsight is 20/20 !

    That broke my heart to see Sen. Rand Paul and his wife , along with the other guest as well as the police officer trying to protect them being harassed to a degree of what could of been life threatening for all. The FBI needs to arrest every single participants for their uncivil actions.

    It's been reported - by an eye witness - of seeing a large group of rioters having a party in a park - talking about the rioting - getting ready to go out (in the dark) and do it again.
    They're well paid and put up in good hotels - even flown in from other cities.
    Now how is that peaceful protesting. Not!

  • Gail Denham

    09/01/2020 11:00 AM

    It would seem that so many have forgotten what God longs to give them (in Christ) (after they accept Jesus) - a sound mind!
    Even many Christians are scared out of their minds - so they're hiding away. The parade of Prayer people and others waving American flags, who drove through Portland was a start.
    Granted, they probably shouldn't be hucking tomatoes and spraying with bear spray - but now one of them has been gunned down -- hunted, located, his location yelled out -- and he was murdered.
    And does the mayor of Portland care? Not much I think. I pray his parents and family will go ahead and sue the city. They should.
    Prayers for President Trump - for safety in Kenosha -and that people will see and recognize what wisdom a sane person can bring to their city. Pray for wisdom from God for our President - as people pray.

    Look forward to your Newsletters and commentaries each day. Also enjoy your weekly show.
    I recently viewed a documentary called (A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing), that adds to the understanding of the forces and strategies behind the activities of the Democratic Party and the radical groups. It also does a good job of profiling Saul Alinsky (Clinton’s mentor) It covers some of the Chicago activities during 50-60’sThere are many names on the Video that also link back to Obama’s training. The video is available on Amazon. All in all, a great Documentary, that I wish more would see. Maybe worth mentioning in one of your newsletters or show.
    Thanks for all you!

    I woke up this morning with this thought. My understanding of why the Obamas bought a very expensive house in DC was so their youngest daughter could finish high school. She is in her second year at Michigan U. Why do they stay in DC? There must be horrible things going on there. Why would anyone choose to stay in DC unless...

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP!!! The Public needs to wake up and DO YOUR HOMEWORK before the election. Our President is the BEST!! #1 - He does have our safety in his best interests. He wanted to send in the national guard to Portland, but the Democratic governor said no. Our President can only do what the governor says, until he has too. #2 - He has tried to close our borders for our protection, but you and others think that is just awful...and then you yell prejudice. Thank you President Trump. #3 - President Trump wants our police and WE DO TOO if you know how much evil is in our country! Who do you call when you are being robbed? Hum.....THINK! Thank you President Trump. I am so glad you are a hard nose President. These snowflakes in our country are so ignorant! #4 - China is mad at US because we are making them pay fair imports and they are trying so hard to get back at us. #5 - Trump told everyone that they hydroxychloroquine and zinc does work and it is FDA approved and even went up against Facui who is suppose to know everything about medicine....wrong......go to AFLDS.ORG you will see that the President was right, it is because everyone hates President Trump and we are all suffering for it. Mr. Huckabee, why is it you have not stood up for this? You are an honest person and I believe in you to show the truth. We look to your program for 'truth'. I could go on and on about President Trump. He can be rough around the edges.....so what if he is working so hard for us to make our country GREAT again. God Bless America and its citizens.

    Governor, I'm so speechless watching the attacks on Sen. Paul, his wife, & others. Of course, the mayor knew there would be guests at the White House & wouldn't put more police on duty, shame on her.
    I also watched some of the weekend news & was sickened to hear the Mayor of Portland attack the President. This is not the first rodeo with Portland riots. They started some time ago, but know are funded, by the BLM, Soros, & I believe the Chinese government. Question: I don't hear too much from the citizens of these destructive cities complaining about the riots & terror. Are they staying quiet because of fear. I've only heard some complain about there business being destroyed. Has the media tried to interview them? Are they moving out. Do they go out during the day, & then at night go home & lock there doors & pray they're not attacked?
    I too believe that AG Barr, FBI, & HLS are a little to late into investigating the mobs. I know our President as extended the olive branch to help the democrats in the riot riddle cities, but they refuse. Is it possible that it's too late & we lost these cities & states?
    What's happening to Mike Flynn is an outright shame & the hands of justice is not in his favor. I continue to pray for him. They let protesters destroy cities, let murderers, rapists, child abuses, & most disgusting criminals out of jail with no bail. I hope & pray we re-elect President Trump. VP Biden is not capable of running this country. What's again so shameful is to see people in Congress encouraging fear tactics. Shootings are on the rise in my state. We haven't seen any mob rule yet, & I'm praying it doesn't happen. I live between 2 major cities that have constant problems. We've had protests a couple of months ago, blocking major highways, but they were dismissed off the highways effectively, but the police did take a knee!

    1. The people who paid for the rioters in DC need to be found.
    2. Joe Biden has tacitly approved and Kamala Harris has openly supported the violence.
    3. I expect a vigorous attempt by Dems to take advantage of mailed-harvested ballots to cheat in this election.
    4. We need to open up our economy while protecting those with co-morbidities and the elderly.

    We are at the end of our tolerance of the lawless, radical democratic party and the violence, killing, and destruction of property, jobs and our Constitution and harm to our country they practice. The democratic party today is the party of criminal conduct and lawless cities and states. Where are the Federal legal safeguards to protect our country and people from the democrat lawlessness and destruction of our country? Where are the Federal legal safeguards to protect our country and people from the lawlessness of the democrat House of Representatives demonstrated and evidenced over and over again? If we have the legal safeguards I am speaking of, use them now!

    Where is the creative intellect among republicans, I do not see it. The democrat lawlessness in their cities, states and the US congress can be stopped, now. Use the power of of the purse, creative intelligence, and truth to the people and stop the lawless democrats now. For Heavens sake republicans and the best and brightest among us step up and give the country, the people, and President Trump real help.

    These Democrat cities must abide by the laws of our country when this kind of violence is let run free. We must have law and order. There are many good people who live in these states that must be protected with our police and officials. If they fail and there cities are more like a war zone with murders, gun shots, threats, flag burning s, and so on and so on, we must send in our troops and bring back law and order. Our courts must prosecute those who oppress and destroy with our laws and bring justice.

    I'm increasingly concerned about the aftermath of the upcoming election. Hillary advised Biden to never concede if Trump wins. That could result in 4 more years of Trump bashing instead of the House and Senate taking care of the nation's business. Also, if Biden wins, although they may believe they will be able to control the anarchists after the election, the anarchists have a completely different objective than the democrats. I fear Antifa and related groups will continue to tear the country apart. It's frightening.

    Dear Rev. Huckabee, Sir, I can't praise you enough for all you are doing (while showing off that cute dimpled grin and using appropriate word choice. You have GREAT verbal skills.). (This sentence is coming from an 80 year old Dallas grandmother who thinks you are the ultimate...sssshhhh...Don't tell your wife!) Thank you so much for trying so hard to set America straight. However, if I could make one suggestion for you to consider it would be to avoid reverse psychology (if you want blah, blah, then vote for Biden...What we need to hear, Sir, is advice on steps we can take to convince people to have respect for law and order, to honor each other by listening, to support each other when possible, to stop being so critical and to look for ways to unify our country...I know this is a tough challenge, but I'm convinced that you Sir Huck have the skills to help people come up with a plan that will work to unify us...our country is falling apart, and we must strive to be at peace and to work to create harmony. Look how well the U.S. came together after 9-11 and a couple of other disasters...but soon the masses went back to being their former ways of living and criticizing...something MUST be out there to unify us. Good Luck and God Bless you a trillion times...I hope I get to meet you some day. Regards, Shirl R

    Mike, the information you published tonight about the update from the Centers for Disease Control should be shouted and broadcast from the housetops and the mountaintops! (Satellite dishes.) With this new admission from the CDC, all mask wearing should stop immediately. All businesses should be able to reopen. All children should be able to go back to school with no restrictions whatsoever! All of this should happen immediately. This was all a huge hoax, just as I suspected right from the beginning! I posted this information on Facebook, and only two people looked at it. How can we get this information out to the people? How can we get President Trump to use his bully pulpit to announce it to the whole nation. The Left considers the Centers for Disease Control as their god of Science. We need to act on this new information yesterday! Thank you for writing about it, and thank you in advance for your advice about how we can use this information to stop all the insanity.

    I am not surprised about the low number of Covid19-only deaths. My intuition about the numbers being fluffed was correct.

    Americans with even the slightest amount of common sense have known all along that this pandemic was exaggerated. The last I heard - "Exaggeration is Lying!!!"

    Fauci should be the first one to be held responsible for the extent of this pandemic. He was advising to shut down the entire nation! The president made his decisions of social distancing and wearing masks based on Fauci's advisement.
    So much for Fauci going out in a blaze of glory when he finally retires! The DIMS lured him over to their "party of science". They got him hook, line, and sinker!!!

    Looks like it is time to reopen the nation and get back to normal! For the people who want to continue to wear masks, let them do so! If that is where they want to continue to spend their money, let them do so.

    Faith verses fear! This pandemic has been spiritual warfare at its "finest" (for lack of a better word).

    Hooray for the people who caught the CDC's report! Looks like the tide is turning!
