SATIRE

Doesn’t Understand Satire or Just A Lying Propagandist? You Make The Call: During a rally, President Trump did a bit imitating a corrupt politician offering Exxon’s CEO favors in exchange for donations, adding that that’s something he would never do. Vox.com “journalist” Aaron Rupar lifted the first part out of context and tweeted it, implying that it was Trump admitting to seeking illegal quid pro quo donations.

Naturally, it was retweeted by numerous prominent liberals who accuse Trump of not being honest, and so far, three Democrat Congress members are demanding an investigation. They probably really mean “impeachment.” I wonder if Twitter will ban all of those liberals for circulating misinformation? Don’t hold your breath.

Here’s when you know you’ve committed a major act of journalistic malpractice: Rupar was actually fact-checked and reprimanded for lying about Trump by Daniel Dale of CNN!

LINE OF THE DAY!

From a commenter on a story about Trump’s brightening reelection prospects at PJ Media:

“Trump ground game: Knock on a million doors.

Biden ground game: Steal a million Trump signs.”

PREPARING FOR CIVIL UNREST?

I know that many Americans are worried about all the threats of widespread violence and civil unrest if the voters have the effrontery not to give leftist extortionists the power they‘re demanding. I think that’s something for the police and the National Guard to be preparing for. But if you think you need more than them and maybe, in a worst cast scenario, the Second Amendment, then here’s a checklist of items to stockpile if you are in a place where you think civil unrest might cause disruptions and force you to hunker down at home for a couple of weeks:

If nothing happens in your area, this is still a handy list to have on hand for emergency preparedness in case of natural disasters, like a hurricane, earthquake or Democrat government that can’t stop rioters, put out a wildfire or keep the electricity on.

And for some extra peace of mind, here’s an excellent article on what the Bible says about the pointlessness of worrying.

EXIT INTERVIEWS

Like other crime and riot-plagued blue cities, Seattle is seeing a big exodus of police officers retiring. KOMO News got hold of some of their exit interviews, so if the city leaders try to tell you the cops just wanted to take advantage of low airfares to Florida, don’t believe it. Some of the more printable words they use to describe Seattle and the people running it (into the ground) include socialist, “I’m done,” “Rioters not being charged even when they assault officers,” and one who summed it all up succinctly, “You could pay me twice what you’re paying me now and I would not work for Seattle under this current political mayhem, Marxist collaborations, and lack of government and police leadership.”

But sure, let’s put the same leftwing halfwits in charge of the entire country. What could possibly go wrong?

AINSWORTH:  WHY THE MUSIC INDUSTRY SHOULD BACK TRUMP

By Laura Ainsworth

Thank you, Mr. President, for your insistence during the last debate that we open the country back up as soon as possible. Thanks for your positive vision, for saying we have to learn to LIVE with the virus, while Joe Biden talked morbidly about dying with it. Thanks for pointing out the progress that has been made in treatment and the declining mortality rates, signs that the virus is weakening over time and that this WILL be over. And, especially, thank you for expressing concern about the collateral damage not just from the virus itself but from locking people, schools and businesses down for months --- the depression, financial ruin, associated health problems, even suicide.

Nowhere has the response to this virus hurt people harder than in the music business. I know, because I’m in that business myself; I grew up in it and have many musician friends. Fortunately, I have a “day job” --- writing and researching --- that I can do from home and that hasn’t been impacted at all by the virus. But many of my friends are full-time musicians, or at least they USED TO BE, and their lives have been decimated.

Two things made me think even more about this as I was watching the debate. First, it was held in Nashville --- literally, Music City USA --- which has just about been killed by the response to the virus. Second, I’d received a phone call the day before from a musician friend who gave me some especially dire news.

"There are NO GIGS,” he said, going on to detail the work that had been lost by him and his wife, who is also a musician. December is traditionally the biggest month for booking live music, and this year there is NOTHING. “The depression I’m seeing is unbelievable,” he said. He went on to tell me that several musicians he knew had committed suicide, including one friend who already suffered from depression, as many musicians do. This person was increasingly desperate for work, didn’t have the money for his medicine or the inclination to take it, and just couldn’t deal emotionally with the stress any longer, and he hanged himself from a tree in a vacant lot.

I had hoped to work with him in just a few months, as I have plans to do a studio album early next year. But he apparently got to the point where he couldn’t see as far as the next day, and now that won’t be happening.

My own feelings of depression are mild, thank God. But I’ve definitely got “virus fatigue.” I’m tired of the virus being used for political ends. (This means you, Joe Biden and the people trying to make you President.) Tired of being corrected when I call it what it is: THE CHINESE VIRUS. Tired of the media “playing doctor” and censoring even credentialed physicians and researchers, treating them as heretics when they disagree with the noted health experts at, say, Twitter. And most of all, I’m tired of the endless, ruinous lockdowns that are more political theater and darkly gleeful expressions of governmental control than real protection. (My husband and I were careful, worked at home and wore masks when we went out, and we still both got the virus.) “Never let a crisis go to waste,” says the left, and they really, really mean that.

Ironically, the music industry is populated largely by Trump-hating radical leftists. They’re supporting Biden only because they can’t have Bernie and think Kamala is an acceptably radical future President. When I “came out” as conservative after the disgraceful Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, it was a big deal, as I knew that many in my industry would designate me a “nonperson,” to borrow a term from George Orwell, if they knew I even slightly leaned right.

"Laura, you would just not believe how much they hate conservatives,” my musician friend (a closet conservative) told me on the phone. He went on to say that he and his small circle of friends who are conservatives have to monitor their speech constantly, lest they be blacklisted. He told me that one friend in the business who knew of his conservative leanings had recently told him that he can no longer be friends with him, or with anyone who supports Trump.

"Can’t we just agree to disagree and still be on good terms?” my friend asked him. “I know you think differently from me, but I can still associate with YOU.” No, the Trump hate was too strong.

Yet it’s the left that calls for more devastating lockdowns –- in the name of “science,” as if all scientists agreed on this. It’s Biden who's willing to continue indefinitely the very policies that will destroy what is left of the music business, and a lot of other businesses, while Trump’s goal is to get America back to work as soon as possible. Yet musicians who are desperate to regain their livelihoods have been brainwashed into hating Trump, blaming him as much as if he’d personally sat in a lab with some test tubes and slides and created the virus himself. They’re living in a bubble of irrational, like-minded friends who watch CNN and believe the lie that Trump is some kind of white supremacist monster.

But they have it wrong. It’s Trump who cares about them, who wants to end this nightmare and let them get back to their lives, back to the work that is their heart and soul. The left has shown it cares only about politics and power.

RIP, SPENCER DAVIS

By “Huckabee” pop culture guru Pat Reeder (http://www.facebook.com/hollywoodhifibook)

Monday, we lost one of the big names of the 1960's British Invasion when Spencer Davis died in Great Britain at 81 while being treated for pneumonia. Davis was described to the BBC by his agent Bob Birk as “a highly ethical, very talented, good-hearted, extremely intelligent, generous man.”

Davis was a guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and writer for the Spencer Davis Group, a blues-influenced rock band that made a splash in America with the now-classic hits, “I’m A Man” (later covered by Chicago) and “Gimme Some Lovin’” (covered by the Blues Brothers and every wedding band on Earth.) While Davis occasionally sang, most of the vocals were handled by a young teenage singer named Steve Winwood, who went on to form Traffic and later become a huge solo star.

After the British Invasion cooled, Davis continued playing for a while before becoming a record executive. In 2006, he began touring again under the Spencer Davis Group name, sometimes joined by original drummer Pete York, but not Steve Winwood, even though Davis once said, “Steve never sounded so good as he did with us.”

To prove it, here’s a literal blast from the past, the original Spencer Davis Group doing “Gimme Some Lovin’” on a Finnish TV show.

RED PILL ALERT

Rapper 50 Cent got a look at what his tax rate would be under Joe Biden this week and angrily took to Twitter to declare, “WHAT THE (BLEEP)? (VOTE FOR TRUMP)…I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people, 62% are you out of ya (BLEEP)-ing mind.”

Aside from the foul language and the false narrative that “Trump doesn’t like black people” (as Trump accurately says, he’s done more for African-Americans in less than four years than Joe Biden’s done in 47 years), this is a great example of someone becoming genuinely “woke” to reality.

Candace Owens had more to say on this subject that’s well worth listening to and sharing, particularly with any friends who don’t understand that Joe Biden’s tax plans will leave them with about 50 Cent in their bank accounts.

I usually go to mikehuckabee.com to get them now. I don't know why the deductions were stopped, but I enjoy your columns so much & would like for them to be on my emails. I will send $50 per your request today. But please take the $10 out of my account from now. Thank you.

    Good grief - a made-up story about Trump - at a rally - saying he begs big companies for money. And several congress persons start an investigation. Do they not have anything else to do? Not doing the people's business, that's for sure. Thanks for re-posting the article about "not worrying " - fretting has sometimes been my middle name - and yesterday - the day of prayer and fasting - I swore off news for the day - what a lovely restful day. And prayed of cours.e

    Sure happy to be reading your site, & watching your show. You tell the true stories& disclose all the fake news and lies being spread by the demoncrats and all their suck-up mouthpieces in the MSM. It’s getting to the point of being hilarious now, how many lies, fake news stories they throw out, then accuse President Trump of doing the exact things they are actually planning to do themselves in the future, but telling him how bad he is! Really, I’ve gotten to the place where I just start laughing out loud when I hear the things coming out of their mouths. I just stop and remind myself, “God is in control”, no matter the outcome of the election. If the demons get elected, there might be global warming, but it won't be from CO2 emissions, it will be the wrath of God! Keep up the good work, Governor!

    The Forever Bogus Information agency needs to immediately have ALL Upper and Mid-level management security clearances rescinded. A deep through complete cleaning/ fumigation, and then a complete and through vetting of each manager's personal/ family, taxes, bank accounts and property listings BEFORE reinstating the security clearance. Make them re-swear in writing their oath again, sign/ date it for the official records! And prosecute/incarcerated the violators in Federal Prison not Federal club med with the tennis courts and swimming pool in AZ, to the FULL extent of the law...Then and only then will the Folly Bumbling Idiots agency ever hope to have any integrity again, and EARN BACK the people's respect that 3 letter organization once had. Ever since cross-dresser director J.Edgar its management has been a disgrace and gives those honest dedicated troops "in the trenches," a very bad reputation needlessly...making the troops suffer because management chose to TOTALLY disregard their oath's responsibilities.

    God Bless the energy our President Trump has to do all these Rallies! Also, I agree with Jo Cluck's comment about Chris Wallace & others. MI Gov. blaming Trump for all the unrest, she needs to be voted out of office.
    Then there's an attack on Jews for Trump, NY & now a ballot box was set on fire in Boston, but all was not lost. This is all too crazy, nothing is safe anymore including our lives! They should move the ballot boxes inside your town halls, or post office offices, but just in the entrance area. Do you think for one moment if President Trump is re-elected this destruction WILL END? Will he be able to stop / control the destruction with some of his powers & the AG?

    This is well worth 18 minutes of your time. Our Nation is at risk, you need to know what is really at stake.

    For those of you who have not seen this video,please view all of it. It is a speech by Thomas Klingenstein, President, the Claremont Institute, which is a very conservative institution.

    It was sent to me by a good friend. The video, which outlines what this election is really about, shows what our multicultural opposition in this election is planning for our country, and why we must not allow them to win.

    I agree with you regarding President Trump and his abrasiveness, and yes, you have to be tough and assertive and tell people what you have done for our country in the past 4 years, because the media NEVER gives kudos nor compliments at all, about what a great job President Trump has done for the United States of America, and even the peace negotiations in the Middle East. So those who don't like any one who boasts about the great job they have done, are the same people who are endlessly negative in life. For some reason, they are the ones who are miserable because the sun is shining, and always, always looks for a dark cloud and NOT a silver lining. Most of those people that I know in my life, don't like President Trump, but they also don't like Biden either. They are the type of people who don't like anything, except how to spread negative gossip and believe their own opinions and no one can change their minds. I guess the word, 'tunnel-vision' springs to mind when I encounter these people, and I do my best to avoid these negative nannies as much as I can, but unfortunately, some are in my own immediate family, and I really can't avoid them all together. That is one good thing about the Chinese virus, we could not have the big get-together events this past summer, so I didn't have to be around them.

    Also, President Trump indeed HAS to be abrasive because you have to be tough and 'un-waffling' (what Margaret Thatcher said about President Ronald Reagan that he waffles too much), when you are dealing with China and other communist controlled governments. We have too many of them in our state governors already, i.e. NYS Gov. Cuomo, CA Gov. Newsome, MI that lady who's name I cannot recall right now, WA Gov. again I cannot remember the name, actually all the states in America that have Democrat Governors are the states that are acting way too much like Hilter did when he controlled Germany, England, and all his propaganda that Jews are bad, black people are dirty, and they all had to hide for their lives, i.e. "The Diary of Anne Frank", "The Sound of Music", and all those other movies that showed exactly what Hilter was doing to people he thought threatened his power. Kind of sounds familiar, unfortunately, in today's Twitter, Facebook, Google, MSM, Liberal Democrats, world. They are attacking people who do not agree with their narrative and are a threat to their power. Well, when govt. takes away the Power of the People, which in a Republic Democracy that is the way it is suppose to be, the People will revolt and stand up for our U.S. Constitutional Rights. That is why you HAVE to be tough like President Trump is and has been for 4 years, because communism and socialism has NO LIFE SPAN in the great United States of America, and the American citizens will remind those who are against our Constitution, why our Constitution was written in the first place! Law and order must be maintained in any free country, otherwise it is not civilized and not free.

    So yes, President Trump has to be tough, arrogant, abrasive, and mean because the criminals don't care about law and order, that is why they are criminals. President Trump is doing what is necessary to save the life of the The United States of America, if he didn't care, he'd be as meek as a mouse and hide away in his mouse hole, like sleepy Joe has been doing. Wasn't Saddam Hussein and Bin Laden also found hiding in a hole when the law came down on them too?

    President Trump is not a criminal, that is why he is out and about and talking loud and proud because he loves America and will do anything he can to protect her. He is a strong leader and fearless against those who wish him ill-will. We should all thank him (by re-electing him) for all his sacrifices because he has done more in the past 4 years to make America strong and great again, than other past presidents, to ensure that America is great and stays as the 'light on the hill' for other countries to aspire to be like.

    “Preparing in case the anarchists hold true to their threats”...recalling our elected leftists, and former politicals called for continuing anarchy regardless of winner...reminds me of prepping 21 years ago. The food stored went to the homeless shelter, the cash was divied up to the needy at the church, with the glass jars given to a fellow who always canned everything anyway. The tools, etc, are still hanging out in an oversized trash barrel, some still in packages never opened.No doubt somewhere in this wall bookcase are all the manuals on this’n’that. ..including caring for guns I never got around to buying. That may have been when I stocked up on N95 masks. So we are praying this threatened event is as benign as the calendar turn-over from 1999. Also praying if it isn’t that the Rapture is the next day..??. Also, you mentioned something in the last couple of days I was going to thank you for; now I am unable to recall what, so just know you are Daily Appreciated. Thanx...
