Tip for Inoculating Your Children Against Bad Ideas:

If they still have a big bag of candy from trick-or-treating, it’s not too late to teach them about socialism by threatening to give half of it to a kid who stayed home watching TV.

Voting overhaul?

Before you cast a vote for a Democrat, note that it might be the last vote you ever cast that’s not under an already-ruled-unconstitutional system in which Washington dictates state voting laws.


"Pecan Resist"

Ben & Jerry’s latest ice cream flavor, “Pecan Resist,” may be the company’s most openly pro-leftist product yet.  But it turns out that one ingredient has been declared not only “racist” and "white supremacist," but it’s also in all their other products.  In fact, they couldn’t be made without it, and I’m not talking about sanctimoniousness.

I love it when angry, leftist, PC identity groups eat their own.  At least in this case, eating their own will be tasty.  I should also point out that since "Pecan Resist" is chock full of nuts, some leftists might consider eating it to be cannibalism.



 Reader Q&A on Sen. Grassley and SCOTUS nominations


From Richard P:  I would like to hear your thoughts about an alleged statement by Charles Grassley, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, that he would not put forth another Trump nominee for the Supreme Court in the remaining two years of the President's first term! Why would any Republican make such a pledge, especially in view of the despicable actions of the Democrats in trying to torpedo Kavanagh by any means possible?  Ruth Ginsburg has vowed to stay on the court even if she is completely incompetent to function simply to try to derail the president.  Please tell me Grassley made no such pledge.



From the Gov:  Thanks for writing, Richard.  Sen. Grassley didn’t say this, exactly.  But it was about half as bad.  As reported in THE HILL, shortly after Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation he told Martha McCallum on FOX News that his Judiciary Committee panel would not consider filling a vacancy in 2020, when the primary/campaign season is going on.  This is a break from what Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said.


In other words, if Ruth Bader Ginsberg retires or becomes incapacitated in 2019, Grassley will work towards confirmation of a replacement.  But if she’s able to hold on till 2020 --- which she absolutely will do if she has to be hooked up to life-support machines or cryogenically frozen --- then, as far as Grassley’s concerned, the seat will remain vacant until the next President can nominate someone.


To get some perspective, let’s go back to 2016 and the blocked nomination of Merrick Garland during Obama’s last year in office.  (Many leftists rationalize the hysterical fight to keep Kavanaugh off the bench at all costs as more-or-less “payback” for that.)  Grassley is no doubt thinking about what happened with Garland, because he says it was in 2016 that he “pledged” not to take action on a High Court nominee in 2020.


It’s not quite the same situation, though, and one hopes Grassley will consider all factors if and when the issue comes up and rethink his decision.  In 2016, term limits ensured that Obama, after eight years in office, was in lame-duck territory when he nominated Garland.  Obama was pretty much on his way out the door, intending to leave us all to live with his choice.  In contrast, Trump in 2020 will be the incumbent, presumably aiming to keep his seat for another four years.  The Democrats will certainly be trying to get him out of office, but that will be far from a foregone conclusion.


Incidentally, Lindsay Graham has agreed with Grassley on this.


If this is how the Judiciary Committee plans to handle it, then Ruth Bader Ginsberg is on notice:  keep exercising and taking those vitamins so you can stay on the bench into 2020, retire then, and President Trump won’t be able to fill your seat that year.


New Project Veritas: Beto Campaign illegally supporting caravans  


According to the latest undercover videos just released by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, it appears that there’s a reason why Texas Senate candidate and the Democrats’ latest dream boat, “Beto” O’Rourke, can’t afford to share any of the $70 million in donations that he’s raked in with other Democrats.  His staffers seem to be saying that they’re spending campaign funds on pre-paid cards to provide supplies and transportation for Honduran aliens in migrant caravans heading to the US.  One says if they’re questioned, they’ll clam it was for food for campaign events.

Commentary continues below advertisement

I suppose you could make that claim, if they expect the Honduran aliens to vote Democrat once they’re across the border.  Not sure how well this is going to sit with people who already live in Texas, though.

Economic numbers released

In the last set of economic numbers to be released before the election, here’s what Republicans have to run on:


The government reports that in October, a whopping 250,000 jobs were added to the economy, including 32,000 manufacturing jobs (you know, the ones Obama told us were never coming back.)  Unemployment held steady at 3.7%, the lowest in decades.  There were a record 156,562,000 Americans employed, the twelfth such record set since Trump became President.  The number of employed men over 20 and employed women over 20 also both set new records.  Black unemployment was near a record low, while Hispanic unemployment reached an all-time low.  And wage increases were the strongest since 2009.


Here’s what Democrats have to run on:




So if you’re one of those people whom Trump predicted would get “tired of winning,” you know who to vote for.  Everyone else, you know who to vote for.  Now, go vote as if your job depended on it, because it does.

    Mr. Huckabee,
    I have a friend whose "niece-in-law" was hospitalized in very critical condition with what the doctors thought was liver abscesses. There were several, the biggest being about the size of a grapefruit and it had ruptured filling her abdomen with really nasty stuff. She was on death's doorstep with the doctors trying to get her "cleaned out" before any type of surgery. With many transfusions and lots of draining, they were able to stabilize her and are trying to build her up to stand surgery in a couple of weeks if she continues to improve. It has been discovered that she does not have abscesses but instead she has parasites that she contracted when she had to go to MEXICO on a business trip for her company. There is no telling what diseases the people in the caravan have (just like the migrants had when they invaded Europe), but the Democrats want to get these people into the US. This borders on treason doesn't it?

    I pray for Pres. Trump daily & for all elected officials. He is being attacked like no other President in my 71 years of memory. I pray he realizes how badly America needs him to stay the course & not get discouraged. The liberals can’t stand being challenged by anyone disagreeing with them. Stay Mr. President please stay. God be with you & give you wisdom.

    My grandparents came from Slovenia (Yugoslavia when I visited with my mother and step-father in 1963) in the early 1900's. They were married in 1913 but grandma's younger sister came earlier. Great-aunt married and was widowed fairly young and remarried a Croatian man. Like my mother, great aunt saved everything and I have many letters. cards, religious things, etc. that I can't read because I don't speak or read the language like mom did. One of the more interesting things is an English version of "The Law of Naturalization Made Easy to Understand" in English published by John F. Jordan Co. in Chicago and revised in 1927. You could get a copy of the Constitution for 29c. It states that only free white persons and persons of African nativity and African descent can become citizens of the United States. "To Get First Papers: You can take out first paper the first day you arrive in the United States if you wish to do so and are eighteen years old or over. You must live in the United States a full five years before you can ask for your second paper." You must go to the Court House and that paper costs $1.00. Naturalization papers I have in my possession for great-aunt and second husband but do not know if grandparents had papers. Grandpa died before I was born at 52 and grandma never spoke English. Questions asked to get papers include: what do you do for a living, vessel you came on, port you entered, do you believe in organized government, do you speak English language, are you attached to principles of the constitution, believe in polygamy, etc. I found this little booklet enlightening.

    As to Grassley's recent statement of his intent not to put forth another Trump nominee for SCOTUS, his brazenness is unbelievable, even for me! I'd like to know what gives him the right to make such a decision? If I were an Iowan, I would be livid right now.

    I thought the Supreme court judges were suppose to be non-political, but yet you say "Ruth Ginsburg has vowed to stay on the court even if she is completely incompetent to function simply to try to derail the president". Is it just me or does that seem very political, biased, judgemental, and about everything else that a judge should NOT be. In other words NOT QUALIFIED to sit on any court, let alone the supreme court!!

    Re: President Trump's speeches and rallies before the mid-term elections. Please tell the president and his speech writers his speeches and rallies must be STRONGER telling the people what a republican congress did for the people and what a republican congress will continue to do for the people, and what the democrats did not do for the people and what they intend to do that will hurt the people should they win a majority in the House. Only a few days left!

    The Associated Press slammed a good portion of U.S. Citizens again demeaning them by calling them undereducated, low income, and are whiter than the rest of the United States. This is because Trump has visited places out of the way and in smaller communities. Look at the headline in the attached article...smug, elitist rhetoric.

    By Associated Press Washington, D.C. November 3, 2018 @6:11 AM

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is in the final stretch of a 44-city blitz for the midterm elections, but the America he's glimpsed from the airport arrivals and his armored limousine is hardly a reflection of the nation as a whole.

    The president has mostly traveled to counties that are whiter, less educated and have lower incomes than the rest of the United States, according to Census Bureau data. It's a sign that he is seeking to galvanize the same group of voters that helped carry him to victory in 2016.

    Trump has largely eschewed the big metropolises for smaller cities. He has been to Tampa, Nashville, Cleveland and Houston — where the arenas could accommodate his crowds. But he's primarily been jet-setting to smaller places such as Elko, Nevada (population 20,078). Or, Mosinee, Wisconsin (population 4,023). Or, Belgrade, Montana (population 7,874).

    When Trump stops at Belgrade on Saturday, historical records suggest he will be the second president to visit the Montana town named after Serbia's capital city. In 2009, Barack Obama held a town hall in Belgrade to promote the Affordable Care Act.

    Since March, Trump has crisscrossed the country like a salesman with a set territory. The majority of his trips have been to just nine states. They are Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Florida, Missouri, Montana, Indiana, West Virginia and Nevada.

    Trump won eight of those states in 2016, but not Nevada. And this year, seven of them feature a major Senate race with a Democratic incumbent. The former casino magnate has visited one city twice for the midterms: Las Vegas.

    Here is a portrait of the America that the president is seeing:


    Trump has journeyed to counties where it's slightly more of a struggle to reach and stay in the middle class.

    Out of his scheduled rallies, 74 percent are in counties with median incomes that fall below the national level. But he's brought tidings of a 49-year low unemployment rate and accelerated economic growth to places that mostly lag the median U.S. household income of $55,032.

    In September, Trump went to Wheeling, West Virginia. The typical household income in the county surrounding Wheeling is $41,986, or about $13,000 below the national level. The metro area has lost 818 jobs in the 12 months that ended in August, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And for West Virginia, coal mine jobs have declined this year after a hiring bump in 2017.

    "Your state is booming like never before," Trump told the crowd in Wheeling. "And our great coal miners are back to work."

    Trump has visited a few affluent counties. He stopped by Rochester, Minnesota, where incomes are high because of the presence of the world-renowned Mayo Clinic. And during a special congressional election in August, the president campaigned in Delaware County, Ohio, where the median household income of $94,234 is just shy of being double the national average.


    Just 18.1 percent of the adults in Elko County, Nevada hold a college degree. That's compared to 30.3 percent nationwide. Of the 43 places Trump is visiting, 28 have a below-average share of college graduates.

    Elko's economy is unique because it relies on mining gold, instead of the office and health care jobs that often require a college diploma. The county has five active gold mines, according to the Nevada Commission on Mineral Resources. This makes it something of an outlier in country where mining metal ore accounts for 0.03 percent of all jobs.

    Trump went to Elko in part to help push for the re-election of Republican Sen. Dean Heller, who is in a tight race against Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen. Heller flattered the president — and provided the lone reference to the local economy — by telling him, "I think everything you touch turns to gold."

    When Trump has gone to more educated counties, it's often because they have a major college campus and venues where people can gather. Missoula is home to the University of Montana and 41.8 percent of its adults are college graduates. The University of Missouri is in Columbia, where 46.8 percent of adults hold college degrees.


    Other than his rallies at big cities, Trump has generally been in communities that are overwhelmingly white. The U.S. population is 73.3 percent white, but almost three-fourths of the places where the president has stumped for midterms are above that average.

    In the county surrounding Council Bluffs, Iowa, 88.7 percent of the population is non-Hispanic whites. Trump told the crowd at his rally that Democrats would allow Central American gangs such as MS-13 to immigrate freely into the United States, a claim disputed by Democratic lawmakers.

    "They want to turn America, these Democrats — and that's what they want — into a giant sanctuary for criminal aliens and the MS-13 killers," Trump said.

    In the area around Council Bluffs, 6.1 percent of the population is of Mexican descent. About 1 percent are from other Hispanic nations. By comparison, 17.3 percent of the U.S. population is Hispanic.

    The biggest outlier in Trump's schedule may be his rally Sunday in Macon, Georgia. Its county is 53.9 percent black, making it the lone place being visited by the president where minorities make up the majority of the population.

    Trump is going there to promote the gubernatorial candidacy of Republican Brian Kemp. He is running against Democrat Stacey Abrams, who is trying to become the first black female governor in U.S. history.

    I read that migrants in the caravan sued the President and Homeland Security for violating their Constitutional rights. Maybe I am mistaken, but I thought you had to be a citizen of the U.S. to have the rights under our Constitution. I know we extend rights to people visiting, but they are in the country. No foreigner in any country, other than ours, should be able to sue us for violating their rights under our Constitution. Do they think our Constitution covers the whole world?

Now milk and vanilla icecream is long been held as a symbol of white supremacists?So when I put cream in my coffee or milk in my cereal I'm a racist? And I suppose chocolate icecream is racist. So I suppose only race appropriateness would have to apply here

    Who is supporting the caravan miscreants in their endeavor to break the law in the US? Isn't that called "collusion"? Aiding and abetting? Criminal conspiracy? If the ring leader (coyote) is caught with a group of illegals he is punished as such because he is furthering the commission of a crime by himself and others. If US citizens are supporting the efforts of the illegals to break the law shouldn't they be prosecuted? If Venezuela is offering material support for an "attack" on our border could this be considered an act of war?
    Any thoughts?

Not talking about you, but sometimes the left-hand isn't knowing what the right-hand is doing <vbg> We and many friends are committed to voting Republican - did so in early voting and also sent numerous $100+ contributions to candidates running in close races. We absolutely support this remarkable president, but will never show up in the polls like many baby boomers who have other things to do. The Democrats have totally lost their minds and we would be absolutely bowled over if they win anything. Just had to put my two cents into your site. You're a fine example to us all and love your daughter, Sarah.

    If Senator Grassley refuses to hold a hearing for another Supreme Court appointment by Presided Trump, he should be removed from office for malfeasance, misfeasance or just plan neglect of his duties. We run this Country, not those jackass politicians. We need a Constitutional Amendment for term limits on Senators and Representatives.
