IS THE WIND SHIFTING?  THE SILENT MAJORITY ARE GETTING SICK OF STAYING SILENT

Well, it’s taken long enough, but I’m starting to sense a shift in the wind as the “silent majority” are getting sick of staying silent while America-hating jerks smash national monuments.

Immediately after President Trump signed an executive order requiring the enforcement of the federal law against vandalizing public statues and monuments, the Justice Department announced indictments of four men in connection with the attempts to topple the statue of Andrew Jackson in Lafayette Square in Washington.

The DOJ rightly drew a line between lawful protest and vandalism, stating, “This Office remains steadfast in its commitment to protect the sacred First Amendment right of individuals to peacefully protest, but these charges should serve as a warning to those who choose to desecrate the statues and monuments that adorn our nation’s capital: your violent behavior and criminal conduct will not be tolerated.”

I feel fairly certain that the idea of facing consequences for their actions will be a completely new experience for these folks, and one that their parents should have introduced them to long ago. They were among 15 people whose photos were tweeted by Trump and whom the DOJ is searching for. Naturally, some liberal media outlets accused Trump of “inciting violence” by tweeting their wanted posters. Here’s a hint: if you don’t want to be the subject of a federal manhunt, then don’t do things that put your face on wanted posters, like trying to smash national monuments. This seems like one of those “you knew the job was dangerous when you took it” situations.

Trump isn’t the only one who’s fed up with allowing rampant crime and destruction in the streets under the guise of protesting racism. In Oklahoma City, DA David Prater announced charges of terrorism, rioting and assault against protesters who turned violent in May. He said, “This is not Seattle. We’re not putting up with this lawlessness here.”

In Manassas, Virginia, a different kind of protest occurred when hundreds of people turned out for a “back the blue” march to support the police. Participants called it “disgusting” to tar every police officer because of what some bad cops elsewhere did, and said police might need better training or background checks for hiring, but as for “defunding the police, "Who in their right mind would even think that's a good idea…” In fairness, I don’t think being in your right mind has anything to do with that particular movement.

At this point, I guess I should stop and make it clear to those who like to take things out of context and leap to dumb conclusions that none of this is meant in any way to diminish the justifiable anger over the death of George Floyd. Indeed, that was something that people of all races across the political spectrum agreed on. The growing backlash is not against legitimate protesters who have genuine concerns about police behavior toward blacks. It’s against the radical left extremists from groups like Antifa, many of them young white adults from privileged backgrounds who were indoctrinated into socialism and hating America in college, who are exploiting the anger over Floyd’s death as a convenient excuse to attack the foundations of the country and try to eliminate the police.

They not only aren’t helping the black community, they’re actively harming it, and they don’t care. And not just by tarnishing the image of legitimate peaceful protesters. Their riots, arson and looting are destroying black-owned businesses and black people’s jobs, eliminating needed goods and services, and making black neighborhoods less safe by driving police out.

Even Bill Maher sees through this latest form of twisted “white savior” behavior as you can see at this link.

Also, check out the must-see video at that link by Ami Horowitz. He asked white leftists on the street who hate the police and want to abolish them if they think black people in East Harlem would agree with them. Well, of course, they would! So he went to East Harlem and asked black people about that. Their response: they think the white leftists who want to abolish the police are “ignorant” and “full of c**p.” They don’t want to live in the lawless chaos that would exist if there were no police.

And check out this blow-by-blow account of the scene at the attempt to take down the Emancipation memorial (the statue of Lincoln freeing a slave) in Washington. Black history reenactors attempted to tell the screaming activists (most of them white) the history of the statue and why it’s important. But what one young white woman called “disgusting” was the fact that they were expected to respect their elders.

And since there are so many white celebrities speaking for black people (without being asked) and calling for abolishing the police, here’s a celebrity rebuttal: Muhammad Ali Jr. says that his father would have called the people who are smashing shops and police stations, beating up innocent people and terrorizing communities “devils.”

And because I don’t believe in smashing heads to make political points, but I’m not averse to making leftists’ heads explode, I’ll also pass along this quote from The Greatest’s son, which has to represent the ultimate backlash against the past few weeks of anarchy:

“I think Trump’s a good president. My father would have supported him. Trump’s not a racist; he’s for all the people. Democrats are the ones who are racist and not for everybody.”

RUSSIAN BOUNTIES ON AMERICAN SOLDIERS

I didn’t address this story when it came out on Friday because I have a standard rule: any shocking “blockbuster” anti-Trump story that comes from hostile media outlets such as the New York Times should be allowed to sit and air out for at least 48-72 hours to give the truth a chance to bubble up. Since this story came out on Friday, and it’s now Monday, I guess it’s safe to mention it.

The New York Times, citing its favorite source, “unnamed officials,” “reported” that Russia offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill US troops in Afghanistan to drive the US out of the region, and that the President was briefed on it. Joe Biden, picking up the softball handed to him by the Times, declared:

“The truly shocking revelation that if the Times report is true, and I emphasize that again, is that President Trump, the commander in chief of American troops serving in a dangerous theater of war, has known about this for months, according to the Times, and done worse than nothing.”

Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) screamed that Trump was guilty of Russian collusion (do they ever get tired of doing that?), and even some top Republicans are demanding an investigation. They really need to learn to count to 100 before taking anything seriously that comes from the New York Times.

So here’s what we know after waiting a couple of days: Russia called the story “fake,” and the Taliban denied there was any truth to it. Neither of those things may cut any ice with you, but Trump also tweeted that the Intelligence agencies reported to him that they did not brief him or the Vice President on this because they didn’t find the info credible (and that was even before they saw it in the New York Times.)

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said, “This does not speak to the merit of the alleged intelligence, but to the inaccuracy of the New York Times story erroneously suggesting that President Trump was briefed on this matter.” So she's saying that maybe Russia did offer such a bounty (even a blind squirrel finds a nut occasionally), but the big anti-Trump “bombshell” part of the story was fake news. Unless you believe our intelligence agencies are willing to lie to make it appear that President Trump is NOT colluding with Russia. And if you believe that, you haven’t been paying much attention for the past three years.

In a somewhat related story, there’s a new movie coming out about the time in the 1930s when the New York Times won a Pulitzer Prize for fake stories covering up atrocities committed by Russian tyrant Joseph Stalin, an award they never returned. Now, THAT'S Russian collusion!

MONDAY NEWS FROM BIZARRO WORLD

Protesters requested a police presence at their protest because they wanted their safety protected while they were demanding that the police be defunded.

And today’s entry in the “Everything Is Racist” sweepstakes is…(spins wheel, and it stops on…) Chess! Because the white piece moves first! No, I'm serious...

COMEY LIES TO AIR BEFORE THE ELECTION

The producers of a miniseries based on James Comey’s self-aggrandizing and dishonest book were upset to learn that Showtime planned to run it after the election, since they hoped it would harm Trump’s reelection chances. So Showtime mysteriously and without explanation rescheduled it to run in September.

Let us hope that nobody will watch it because they’ll be too busy watching the live federal trials of Comey and his fellow coup conspirators.

"GOLDEN GIRLS" THE LATEST VICTIMS OF "CANCEL CULTURE"

By Pat Reeder, “Huckabee” writer/pop culture historian (http://www.facebook.com/HollywoodHiFiBook)

The streaming service Hulu has yanked an episode of the ‘80s sitcom “The Golden Girls” because Rose and Blanche appear in blackface – except they don’t. The two ladies are wearing mud masks on their faces, just like women (and some men) of all races have for centuries.

When a black character walks in on them, they’re embarrassed and insist they’re not wearing blackface, which shows that the writers were aware even then that blackface was offensive. But of course, trivialities such as accuracy, intention or context mean nothing when you’re competing to see who can find the next thing to be faux-offended by, or when you’re panicking in fear before the phony outrage of the cancel culture brats.

But there’s a larger point that makes what Hulu is doing seem even stupider if that’s possible. Most people forget now, because “The Golden Girls” is so beloved by multiple generations for its humor, its cast and its wonderful characters who seem like family, but in its day, it was one of the most “progressive” shows on TV. Creator Susan Harris (who wrote the landmark abortion episode of “Maude”) filled the show with liberal messages that were on the then-cutting edge of what was allowed on prime time.

Blanche, of course, was the poster girl for recreational sex, but the show also touched on adultery (Dorothy’s husband left her for another woman, and she later had an affair with a married man) and sex among senior citizens. Blanche’s single daughter wanted to get artificially inseminated, a lesbian had a crush on Rose, Dorothy’s brother was a transvestite (the girls also accidentally hired a transvestite band for a fundraiser), a male character confessed to having had a sex change operation, and Blanche’s gay brother showed up with his partner to announce that they were getting married.

This was well before “Friends” aired the first lesbian wedding, although that show made sure to put a thumb in the eye of Christian conservatives by casting Newt Gingrich’s lesbian sister to officiate and say that “nothing makes God happier than when two people – ANY two people – come together in love.” (I’d cite the Bible chapter for that, but I can’t find it.) “Friends” also included Kathleen Turner as Chandler’s trans dad. In the same way, “Will & Grace” is often lauded for using the sitcom form to promote acceptance of gays and “soften America up” for accepting same-sex marriage.

Even in the “Golden Girls” episode that Hulu is pulling, the storyline was about Dorothy’s son marrying a much older black woman and everyone having to overcome both racism and ageism.

But here’s that larger point I mentioned: The left always eats their own. The creators of “Golden Girls,” “Friends” and “Will & Grace” thought they were brave pioneers of tolerance for including all those liberal messages in their shows. Yet all three are now under fire from intolerant leftists: “W&G” for promoting swishy gay stereotypes, “Friends” for homophobic behavior by the men, and “GG” over a “blackface” scene that really isn’t. Instead of honoring them for pushing the envelope in an earlier time, leftists attack them for not living up to current standards that might not even exist if it weren’t for them. They demand that those shows be edited or yanked, just like they demand that statues are smashed or books are burned or bowdlerized – and by the way, the big streaming services are already doing that with some e-books.

In social justice warrior land, there is no honor or respect for those who went before. There is only ruthless judgment and condemnation for not meeting a standard that changes almost hourly. If you give in to it, it’s like trying to appease the sharks circling your life raft by cutting off a finger and tossing it to them. The taste of blood will only make them all the more ravenous. It’s better just to give them the finger from your boat and preserve history the way it happened.

This is why my house is stuffed to the rafters with real books, LPs, CDs, DVDs, files on hard drives, singles, VHS tapes, cassettes, 8-tracks, Play-Tapes, etc. etc. If you have to rely on streaming for anything, then you don’t really own it.

Incidentally, for a great lesson in how to react to the SJW mob and how not to, look at Adam Carolla and Jimmy Kimmel. Former partners on the raunchy comedy series “The Man Show,” Carolla refused to knuckle under to the mob. He started a very popular podcast so the networks can’t censor him, and he’s become a defiant champion of free speech. He’s often vilified, but he is never censored or silenced. And he has a new book out on that very subject called “I’m Your Emotional Support Animal” that’s sure to be a best-seller. (Warning: contains rough language that he refuses to self-censor.)

Meanwhile, his former partner Kimmel has tossed in his lot with the leftists. His once-funny late-night show has become just another Trump-bashing snoozefest, and he’s as likely to deliver a teary lecture on some hot button leftist subject as a comedy monologue. But all that virtue-signaling gained him zip: when it was revealed that in long-ago comedy bits, he’d worn blackface and said the “n-word” while impersonating black celebrities, he was forced to take a break to “spend time with his family.” He’s now playing the liberal martyr by blaming his problems on evil right-wingers digging up his old material. But it’s not right-wingers who are demanding his head for comedy bits he did 20 years ago. All they’d like from him is for him to be funny again. It’s the leftists he sucked up to and who will turn on him on anyone else in an instant if they smell any deviation from accepted groupthink.

My advice to him would be to spend less time interviewing boring leftists and more time with Adam Carolla.

    Mr. Huckabee,

    Protestors do not have the right to destroy property. They have the right to petition the government to take down offensive statues. And these Democrat cities, governed by Democrats, have the right to use legal means to remove offensive material. But the rioters and looters, thugs and violent haters do NOT have the right to do whatever they want and rampage through our cities and suburbs---that is NOT covered under the name of "peaceful protest." They are domestic terrorists and what they are doing is flagrant revolution and breaking the law!! And WHY do so many commentators continue to put the finger on Antifa, but not BLM?! Look at the BLM website and see what they are for---the disintegration of the nuclear family, Their outspoken representatives on (rare) news shows are coming out to say clearly that they intend to tear down America completely and replace it with something else! It is their manifesto. They are communist and leftists, and BLM organized Chaz/Chop is the real-time example of how they don't have a clue what they are doing and what a total failure it would be if they ever got their way; they are handing out weapons (in violation of law), beating people, having a rapper Warlord as an unelected leader, and they are attacking independent journalists and running "interrogation tents." A communist set up for sure. My question-- is this reluctance to speak out about BLM not some kind of strange "white guilt" that keeps so many commentators from implicating BLM as a terror organization, just like Antifa is? These two organizations, with Soros money, are both domestic terror groups and equally involved in all this never-ending Thug Revolution going on in our country. We want it to stop. The real friend to the black American community is the one who expects them to work, study, and keep their 2-parent families strong and to give them the praise and encouragement to do those things. Their enemies keep them "enslaved" to the Democrat party because the D's don't think they can do anything without WHITE HELP! And thankfully, many black commentators are saying that very thing---they are not afraid to call out the violent mobs and the arrogant "social justice" enslaving Democrats for who and what they are!! I've been listening to them daily and learning so much about REAL black pride---self-thinking and self-sufficent, strong black patriots who love America and their freedom! My favorites: Shelby Steele, Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, Anthony Brian Logan, Brandon Tatum, Candace Owens, Kevin of "Kevin's Corner," Patricia Dickson, Larry Elder, Ben Carson, Diamond & Silk, David Webb. Other important commentators-- you Governor Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, Seb Gorka, Eric Metaxas, Michael Knowles, Andrew Klavan, Tom Cotton, Michelle Malkin, and others. Thanks for allowing comments and reading. Thank you for all your hard work writing twice daily. You are helping us with hope and good sense, and the Bible verses are inspiring and give hope for us all.
    BTW, this doesn't appear to be that much about George Floyd anymore-- the still-rampaging crowds and youngsters even, probably do not even know who George Floyd is--is a name and an excuse to keep rioting. He was, in fact, a criminal with a lengthy career in drugs and robbery at gunpoint, and he was found to have been high on methamphetamine and Fentanyl, which can kill easily and which has as a side effect, breathing problems (slowing and stopping breathing as a side effect of overdose) and unconsciousness --look it up-- all on its own, let alone in combination with Meth. Yes, it was absolutely WRONG for a policeman to lean on his neck--of course it was! The facts will come out in the courtroom and as justice is carried out, as it should be. But justice by the rule of law IS holding that officer accountable, and the details of the situation will be addressed, as they should be. However, his situation was used a pretext by Antifa and BLM, violence-advocating groups, to go OUTSIDE the rule of law to rampage through the country, and destroy lives, livelihoods, and kill people like Capt. Dorn and others who have been shot and beaten, and they are still going on with this, including SJW whites screaming into the faces of black police officers (which shows their true hearts, by the way). It has long since passed up being about the event that was incorporated into the goals of BLM and Antifa to get their opportunity to begin to destroy the country, to terrorize, frighten and intimidate Americans, and to destroy their OWN communities and now any symbols, vestiges, history, and even the words we use. Do you know that marketing & even the language (Aunt Jemima SYRUP?, Uncle Ben's rice, the use of the word "master" and so many other ridiculous things make up each daily new example of PC culture, identity politics, and virtue signaling). It is time all this STOPS. And so many of our politicians are now trying to change the subject and take no action while the crime continues with impunity. Not stopping it will make it continue and the violence escalate! I fear that the election at the end of this year will be negatively affected, which also appears to be a major motivation behind all the violence and terrorism going on. The Dems will do ANYTHING (Russia, impeachment attempts, Coronavirus, and now race wars) to stop our President and to turn the country over to communism/socialism and a society with no police, which harms black communities even worse than it harms whites, ironically.
    Police brutality is actually a myth--the statistics do not bear it out (although there is room for training and improvement), but there are a LARGER number of unarmed whites killed in police encounters yearly than there are blacks. However black on black crime is rampant in cities, and no one protests that! And black on white homicide is more prevalent than white on black. America is not a racist society and the black vloggers I have noted say the same thing. I hope every day that this revolution and the taking down and destruction of America will stop, and every day is depressing and hopeless as the Democrat & media hype and stirring up of the whole situation continues. Decent and intelligent black and white Americans both, hope and pray that we can get our country and peace with real problem-solving techniques back again.

    I guess black lives don’t matter unless they are killed by a cop. Now, I truly believe the killing of Mr. Floyd was murder and dreadfully shocking and wrong. I don’t think 99% of people disagree with that. However, the rioting is
    killing people, many African American. Where are the protests against that? Why are people not rushing out to protect businesses, many of which are conveniences for African American neighborhoods and owned by very hard working people of color? Why, oh why, are people who are treated like children by liberals still supporting a party that talks a good line but does nothing to make life better for their Black constituents? The same might be said of the Jewish population. It was a Dem president that refused Jewish refugees entering this country who where escaping the ovens. The Dems support the Palestinians over Israel. They did not want Jerusalem to be acknowledged as the Capital of Israel by the US. The Dems are the most racist and Anti-Semitic people in the country.

    I head today some of the things Biden said and did in the seventies through the eighties. If true they were hugely racist. He may not have meant anything untoward by it but his closeness to the hair of women and all the hugging was sexist in a business environment. It is a sign of paternalism. I make no excuses for Mr. Trump’ s past behavior with women, but can you imagine if he had done those things in public? . I do think perhaps Melania has tamed him. The hypocrisy and double standards are staggering. This is insanity. Hatred dies that to people. So does spoiling wealthy white brats.

And I would never have heard about the actors reenacting black history and Frederick Douglas. I have just read "Killing Lincoln" by Bill O'Reilly and now to hear they are toppling Ulysses S Grant and now want to tear down the Emancipation statue with Abraham Lincoln is plain bonkers!

    Inequality in this nation is a cultural and home problem. A solution to the inequality in this nation:

    1. Enact a law requiring every father of all races to support his children beginning at birth. In this proposal, every hospital should be required to alert authorities whenever a single mother gives birth. The fathers should be tracked down, DNA tested and forced to support their child to age 21.
    2. Single mothers need to be counseled on child rearing and given the assistance necessary to ensure that her children are never left unsupervised up to age 16. Financial budgeting and responsibility training to teach them to be responsible for their children’s welfare and to teach their children to obey laws and be honest and trustworthy Good future mothers and fathers . Social Services and welfare departments should be set up to do this.
    3. Fathers that do not support their children should have their wages garnished and the courts should handle the payments for child support. Any that refuse to work should be hauled off to work camps and forced to do public civil service for pay that is sent to support their children.
    This should relieve welfare dollars for mother support and day care programs.

    Since the report about Russia Intell offering bounties on US soldiers seems to be fake news, it's appropriate the NYT and Nanny Pelosi do what they always do with fake news - they promote it as"truth" (or at least a democrat version of truth).

    As for bloviatin' Joes claim Trump did nothing about it, how would Joe know? If there was any credibility to the report, then Trump would have had it handled quietly, not in the media.

    Having worked in the Middle East (and since I define Middle East as a state of mind, Afghanistan is in the Middle East), its not at all uncommon for a young intelligence soldier to come in with a "hot" report, only to find out it is the current Bazaar rumor just now getting to the troops, and about as credible as a democrat mayor.

    I suspect either the Chinese were spreading rumors to stir up trouble, (they have long-standing ties to the Hazara people of Central Afghanistan, and thus have access into the population), or the Iranians running a false flag operation, again to stir up trouble. (There are several pro-Iranian Islamist groups from the old Soviet 'stans, many of whose members are fluent in Russian, who could p[ost as Russian intelligence officers).

    To say the Silent Majority is tired of all this bull manure is a gross understatement. The groundswell is far bigger than anyone knows or will admit. The only question is how will the groundswell erupt from underground? There are millions ready to do what the St Louis couple did in protecting their property. Hopefully this idiocy and treason can be gotten under control or eliminated before there is a Mr St Helens eruption. 90% of this has nothing to do with George Floyd. Sad for the Floyd family.

    I have not regretted not watching late night TV in at least 3 years I have watched a little Falon and thought he was ok but have not tuned in for a least a year . How can anyone find the deadbeat host of late nite shows rewarding? I found them to be a bore, well they could not be a shoe lace in Johnny Carson's shoes's more like a stain in his underwear. As people become impatient will all this racial hoax BS I have gotten angered by so few arrests the Feds are doing a little I want to see the mug shots on TV I want them seen be thrown on to trucks Buses what ever and I really don't care how the police do it. If it takes 25 minutes to show me 100"s a nite that would be a good start. The public wants these menaces off the streets and behind bars and restitution paid in full including payment for officers having to arrest them. As I said start defunding the Prisons the crooks are not to be on a vacation. Take that defunding and apply it to the police paychecks. Now thats something we should be able to vote on.

    Yes, the silent majority is staying silent with a few who do stand up to the mob, or the radical, extreme, leftist. May be & I hope the silence will be at the polls to re-elect President Trump.
    So, since we're going back 100's of years ago getting rid of statues, famous names, etc., so why not change all the TV shows, & movies going back 30/40 years ago. I just can't believe this is happening. Now, it's about John Wayne, & changing school names & removing President Wilson's name (which I think he was a racist). There seems to be no end to this lunacy. What about all those filthy songs & hand gestures with these singing groups. Not my style. Just give me the big bands, 50's, & 60's, & maybe the 70's.
    It was mentioned the Trump campaign is thinking of giving Joe Biden a new nickname, I say no nickname at all. May be if Biden comes up with a nickname, then Trump could punch back. I know Biden has said he's unfit to hold office, etc.
    I recently read an article written by Bill OReilly giving a pretty detailed report on the BLM. I & I'm sure most of us know this organization is funded & organized by 2 or 3 female marxist. Interesting.
    Governor, you may have also reported on this too, but I can't remember.
    More, dodo with Russia.
    I do believe the President did respond to whoever mentioned "white supremacy", but too fast a reaction by him. Correct me if I was wrong.
    Everything going on in this country is like an aggressive cancer. I've been saying right along, since the impeachment was over, then hit with the virus & economy, the President has a very hard road to get re-elected. I pray for him.
    I don't have to much faith with the latest Supreme Court's ruling.
    As usual Governor & staff, a great newsletter.
