WELL THIS IS INTERESTING

Podcaster Joe Rogan, who was a Bernie supporter but is one of the more fair and open-minded figures in media, said that he would like to host a four-hour debate between Trump and Biden with no audience, just the two candidates having an open debate on their visions for the country. Trump immediately tweeted his acceptance. Still no word from Biden, but we should be able to tell how much confidence his supporters have in him by how quickly they start attacking Joe Rogan.

Trump isn’t worthy of Biden’s time, and moderators who aren’t in the Democrats’ pocket aren’t worthy of Biden’s time. For a guy who spends 90% of his time in his basement, he really values his time quite highly.

BIG SALUTE

A big salute to Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Tyler Eifert, for daring to go against the far-left, anti-cop flow of the current NFL. The League allowed players to put the names of people allegedly affected by “systemic racism” on their uniforms (after previously refusing to allow salutes to heroes like the Dallas cops who were killed by a sniper while protecting people who were protesting them.) Eifert took advantage of the new rules by putting the name David Dorn on his helmet.

Dorn was the retired St. Louis police captain who was working as a security guard and who was murdered in cold blood by rioters/looters.

The story notes how brave it was of Eifert to choose to honor Dorn, which tells you a lot that’s sad and infuriating about the current state of the NFL.

If anyone else in the NFL would like to honor people whose lives truly were affected in the most extreme way by racist violence, there are a growing number of them, some police and some just law-abiding citizens, who have been murdered or severely injured by rioters and looters under the BLM/Antifa banners.

Meanwhile, in a hopeful sign that people are finally coming to their senses and realizing that you can’t judge a book by its cover (you can put the dust jacket of “Bambi” over “The Communist Manifesto,” but it’s still “The Communist Manifesto”), the Premiere Soccer League just became the first sports league to remove the BLM logo from their uniforms after waking up to what that group actually stands for. It’s a small start, but it’s a start. Let’s hope the NBA, NFL and MLB get their eyes opened to reality soon, before they cease to exist.

And in more hopeful “We’re fed up to the eyeballs with this garbage” news, more than 10,000 scholars and academics have signed “The Philadelphia Statement,” standing up against the “cancel culture” and the poisonous leftist tyranny that exists on America’s campuses. Granted, they’re conservative and libertarian academics, but at least someone is finally organizing to present a united front of opposition. I’m old enough to remember when it would have been liberal academics who stood up for free speech and the right to debate ideas openly without fear of violence, repression and reprisal. But then, I recently became eligible for Medicare.

MONEY TO BURN

Billionaire Mike Bloomberg could be using his vast fortune to help his struggling hometown of New York City, but instead, he’s using it to try to inflict all its problems on the entire nation by electing Joe Biden and his crew of DeBlasio-like handlers to the White House. You’d think he could look at what’s happened to the city he used to run and realize the disaster that occurs when you put leftists in charge of anything, but apparently he’s blinded by Trump Derangement Syndrome.

In what’s actually a good sign for Trump (the Democrats must be really nervous about the internal polls they’re seeing), Bloomberg has pledged to spend $100 million of his own money on ads to try to help Biden bamboozle the voters of Florida (Democrats hate when billionaires influence elections, except when it's their billionaires.)

While I’m concerned about how many lies can be spewed with $100 million, I have to point out that just because Bloomberg is selling his snake oil, that doesn’t mean people are buying. During his disastrous Presidential bid, he blew more than $1 billion. He ended up winning 55 delegates, who cost him $18 million each. Or put another way, he paid $241 for each vote he won. Still, at that rate, $100 million could buy nearly 415,000 votes, if people are dumb enough to believe his advertising. Of course, it’s possible that most of the people who voted for Bloomberg only did it in hopes that if he became President, he’d stop interrupting every YouTube video they were trying to watch.

Naturally, President Trump had a reaction on Twitter, and it was as blunt and to the point as ever:

“I thought Mini Mike was through with Democrat politics after spending almost 2 Billion Dollars, and then giving the worst and most inept Debate Performance in the history of Presidential Politics. Pocahontas ended his political career on first question, OVER! Save NYC instead.”

"PARTY OF SCIENCE" UPDATE

“Party of Science” Update: California isn’t suffering from uncontrollable wildfires because of arsonists and decades of forest, water and energy mismanagement by radical left environmentalists. No, the fires are because “Mother Earth is angry.” Just ask Nancy Pelosi.

VOTING BEGINS

Believe it or not, thanks to mail-in voting, people are already casting votes for President. Voting this early is a very bad idea if you want to cast an informed vote, which is one of many reasons why Democrats like it. We haven’t even seen the first debate (if we ever do see a debate, which remains to be seen.) Biden’s supporters are desperately casting around for some reason for him not to debate. They seem to have landed on “Trump is a lying liar who lies, so poor Honest Joe would have to ‘correct’ all his falsehoods.” Or to put it another way, Trump will say things Biden disagrees with, and he’ll have to try to refute him, which is also known as “A DEBATE.”

To push this pablum, they’re repeating the nonsensical claim that Trump has told over 20,000 lies. To arrive at that number, the leftist media basically declares everything that Trump says to be a “lie,” including opinions they disagree with, irrelevant details, hyperbole for rhetorical effect, obvious jokes and things that are plainly true but they don’t like to hear them.

They never seem to remember, however, that “Honest Joe” Biden has built his entire career on false claims about his resume, plagiarizing other people’s life stories and speeches, and enriching his relatives through their connections to his office. This isn’t a matter of interpretation: one of his previous presidential bids crashed and burned specifically because he was caught plagiarizing someone else’s speech and biography. So far in just this campaign, he’s claimed to be in favor of banning fracking, then denied it; in favor of defunding police, then denied it, then claimed Trump wants to do it; against shutting down travel from China, then in favor of it; for mandatory mask-wearing, then against it; and for the “peaceful protesters,” then against the violence they were committing the entire time he was claiming they were peaceful.

If that’s your idea of “honest, no malarkey straight talk,” then check out these eight “big whoppers” that should disqualify him from the Presidency if he thinks that liars don’t belong there.

Finally, as long as we're being scrupulously honest, here’s Howie Carr with a list of recent comments by Biden that the media failed to report. I think this is the real, honest reason why Joe’s supporters are as scared of letting him debate as they are of assaulting a Trump supporter who isn’t over the age of 80.

YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK

Having recently given credulous airtime to the author of a book promoting looting (which includes a warning about how it’s illegal to violate the copyrights of the author), NPR next gave its handful of listeners an “All Things Considered” interview with a pompous twit who compared President Trump to Mussolini and his supporters to the KKK (FYI, an organization founded by Democrats.)

I ordinarily wouldn’t even bother linking to something so mindnumbingly stupid, but I’m doing it for two reasons: (1.) So you know what your tax dollars are supporting (which, if we really did have a fascist leader, would certainly not be happening), and (2.) as part of my ongoing series of quotes to illustrate George Orwell’s observation that some ideas are so absurd that only the “intelligentsia” could believe them, since “no ordinary man could be such a fool.”

UNEMPLOYED

A study found that the majority of donations to Joe Biden in 2019 on the Democratic fundraising platform ActBlue came from “unemployed” people.

If you’re wondering why “unemployed” people would give hundreds of millions of dollars to Democrats (particularly during a time when unemployment was at record lows thanks to Trump), well, that’s where the plot thickens. Click the link to read about the loopholes that enable certain donations to skirt laws that identify the donors and insure they’re legal and not straw men hiding illegal foreign donations, and how easy it would be for the Democrats to insure their donors are verified, and yet for some reason, they still haven’t.

    Dear Gov.Huckabee:
    Really enjoy your commentary and sense of humor. When I click on some of the links you include, I can't read that article because a window at the site pops up asking me to subscribe (to the digital version of newspaper, etc.) like the one to Howie Carr's above.
    Keep up the good work!

    Scientific American has come out endorsing Biden. Please comment on their endorsement. It appears very one sided to me, putting a huge amount of belief that Biden could accomplish that which they say Trump hasn't. My scientist children need a rebuttal!
    Thanks.

    I've read your morning & evening. I've said this before, but I'll say it again, your opinion and exposure to most of the "fake news" is excellent. I do have a sense of doubt on this election because of all the horrible disruptions around the country caused by all the democratic governed states. What humans can do to humans is absolutely disgusting. All the bad news coming out about the President & Biden just keeps up with the lies when he speaks. The bad news about Trump was proven to be lies, but Biden runs with it. All these BIG RICH, EXTREMELY RICH, PEOPLE could do a lot to help the needy, homeless, elderly, children, etc., but instead support political parties, so "President Harris" is elected.
    My prayers to all those who will affected by Hurricane Sally. And prayers for those 2 sheriffs that were ambushed in LA. I think you as well as others see exactly what is happening in this country, a RACE WAR. I'm praying so hard the President wins, in addition to the Senate, & house. We must keep the prayer chain ongoing for the sake of our country as it was in the past. Most people were happy, families were happy, children were happy & safe. Amen.

    Madam Pelosi considers the merit of non-existent "Mother Earth" and disregards completely the merit of "the maker of heaven and earth", the only True God, ......Father God! I thank Him for His mercy and patience.....America does not deserve the grace she is getting right now...we cannot earn it, and we need to know that it is purely a gift from our Maker.

    Have you read anything about Trumps first EX saying that he is a Hitler worshiper? Has his book on his nightstand? I have a Dutch friend that is scared to death of Trump after hearing this as she living in Holland during the occupation.

    Thank you so much for all your info and I am scared now as I listed to a podcast yesterday of a professor who has predicted elections correctly for 20 years or so. He says Biden will win.

    Heaven help us!!!

    One interesting bit of news - now Biden says Pres. Trump controls the wind, the storms, the wild fires, - everything that is happening around the U.S. - wow! Oh, and the pandemic is something Pres. Trump caused. That's sure a lot of burden to carry and awfully hard I think for a mere mortal - and I do wonder how he does all that and still does so many good things for the country. It's quite amazing. and yes, I would think that God must be pretty upset with this country, sorry to say. I'm thankful God promises to be with His followers, those who trust in Him - those that have asked Jesus to forgive their sins. Whatever happens.

    Recently in speaking with some of the "liberal" mind-set - they still do not believe or will not say that the riots/looting/mayhem/murders in big cities are happening in the name of blm and antifa. They deny there are riots - or say "well, it's only a few cranky individuals" - really?

    Following is a letter I sent to the Dallas Morning News- that did not get printed (of course). "For 60 of my 90 years I have been a Dallas Cowboy fan. As a young Marine Officer who started as a Platoon Leader in Korea and then went to flight training. In 1960 I was then stationed in California and becoming a lifelong fan of “American’s Team” seemed like the thing to do. I continued to do so, even when stationed and living in the DC area for a number of years. That all ended Sunday evening when I abandoned them forever, and will never watch another NFL game- as one of them kneeled during the National Anthem, and then went on to play in the game, despite Mr Jones previously stated rule. There was no “Grace” here! I can only hope that other Americans will also make this choice and let the TV rating drop off the page!

    Imagine IF Bloomberg would donate 100 million dollars To Charities Imagine if Corporations would donate to tunnels to towers instead of blm Imagine if the MSM would educate criminals not to resist arrest or not to commit crimes Imagine mayors of Democratic cities not complicit in the destruction of their cities Imagine the Left applauding medicine to stop or slow down the China Virus from harming People Imagine people caring for the forrest on the West Coast Imagine an ounce of prevention like the the Bear says only you can prevent forrest fires. Just Imagine IF people would do the Intelligent thing too help each other IMAGINE MAGA use our resources to to find cures for disease Help dismembered people Help with Addiction Start with Campaign Funds would be the Grandest of them all. Imagine Stoping the MSM FAKE NEWS.

    Good morning Governor Huckabee, just a note to ask you what To do. After reading what the left will do To get rid of Trump I am at a loss of what I can do to help. I have never written a letter like this in my life. I’m 70 years old and have never seen anything like this. I’m an Air Force veteran and just an average American who loves my country. I would appreciate any help you could give me. Thanks Jim Robins, Newton, Il

    I wanted you to know that I read almost every message you write & frequently share them to my FB page. On the very small income I receive from social security (because the government stole & mismanaged) I cannot contribute to anything, but if I could every dollar would go to re-electing Trump. I love & rely almost entirely on the information you provide in your posts because it’s the only place I trust to be truthful. Thank you sir for your continued & inexhaustible efforts to inform the American public & to save this country! I wish you were in the White House!

    Ms. Holier-than-thou Pelosi needs to take out a Bible and read it for herself. God's vengeance and wrath are being poured out on the west coast. Mother earth is angry because her creator God is angry. Pelosi doesn't like it because the wildfires are beyond her control. As for Biden saying less natural disasters will happen if he is president is another one of his lies. I just checked...God had not died and left Joe Biden and the DIMS in charge! Sorry Joe, Kammala, Nancy, Chuck, Jerry, AOC, Bernie, and all other promoters of the green new deal. Why so many paper mail-in ballots if all of you are so environmentally friendly?

    When Biden spoke today (9/14), he listed money spent on fires (50 million?) because Trump doesn't have a clue. I would like to see the amount of money spent on fires for the past 5 years by state & compare these expenses to the US citizen money spent on false impeachment, false reports...everything the Democrats have spent my hard earned money on to defeat Trump. I agree w/Pres Trump & others the fires are due to weather changes caused by climate change AND forest management. Why are the national forests along with state forest so illmanaged. It seems common sense to destroy all the dead timber, bushes,...to protect the living from fires. Budget cuts?

I'm a Veteran from an era before most of these morons were born and my patience is as thin as the Nanoparticle that has Shut down the best economy I've seen in my 82+ years to say nothing of the emotional stress it has inflicted on my Grandchildren and when my PTSD goes just a tad farther it would be in these B-urn- L oot and M urder and ANTIFA's best survival interests to take it down to what the Constitution Allows. We are only a few million but I see it in my compatriot's eyes! Enough is Enough! Not as Fast or agile as I was 50 years ago but still just as accurate! This is NOT to be taken as a Threat!

    Dear Govenor: I write this as of September 14th. At this time, in the gulf a tropical storm is forecast to strike Louisiana with 12 to 15 feet of flood waters and up to 24 inches of rain. Farther west, in California and Oregon fires have consumed over 3 million acres of land. Given that humankind charlatans, self designated government funded scientists, want to halt climate change, what I see as folly is something I really suspect the "scientists" have missed. Why not program, design, adapt and implement a climatic system that worries less about bovine flatulance, the vagaries of wind and solar, and demands respect via irrefutable success? True demonstrated success. I propose that the science charlatans, in an effort to irrefutably make believers out of the rest of us, to cause the rainfall to move 1,900 miles from the Midwest to the far West. Wildfires and flooding issues solved! Sincerely, Tom. PS - Obviously I am not a believer in man made climate change. The good Lord can effect that on His own. I DO believe in the severe damage to air, water, and land mass due to mankind's pollution. The two issues are exclusive and it is pollution that mandates attention!

    Thank you, Gov Huckabee for revealing the true facts each day! Why is it that Tyler Perry (who has given his personal, inspirational Christian testimony on TBN) does not speak up to the millions of black people who are devoted followers - & denounce the evil destruction of the U.S.! Guess it's because he's a liberal Demoncrat!
