Today's Commentary:  Pray for the victims and rain -- No thanks -- Training mission -- NFL ratings trending down -- Hillary's reaction -- Additional Commentaries 

Our prayers today for the people of Northern California who are in the path of deadly wildfires, and for those who are fighting the fires. At this writing, at least 17 people have been killed, about 100 injured and over 100 reported missing. The fires have destroyed over 28,000 acres and 15,000 homes. Witnesses have described the fire, smoke and ash as resembling Armageddon. Appropriately, many have taken refuge in churches. Please pray for the victims and for rain.

Sincerely,

Mike Huckabee

No thanks

By Mike Huckabee

Jimmy Carter wants to meet with Kim Jong Un to try to broker a peace deal. Hate to mention this, but the last time a Democratic President made a deal to insure peace with North Korea, it was Bill Clinton allowing them to build nuclear plants. That worked out great for peace.

Training mission

By Mike Huckabee

For the first time ever, U.S. Pacific Command B-1B Lancer bombers participated in a night time training drill with Japanese and South Korean fighters. Wonder if they’re practicing just in case they need to bomb someplace that gets really dark after sundown.

NFL ratings trending down

By Mike Huckabee

The NFL had better get up off its knees while it still can: The ratings for Monday night’s game were 17% lower (that’s a loss of over 3-1/2 million viewers) just from the previous week, and ratings were already trending downward then. Maybe they can blame Americans rejecting them on a Russian conspiracy.

Hillary's reaction

By Mike Huckabee

Hillary Clinton’s statement on Harvey Weinstein was terse enough to be contained in a Twitter tweet: “I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein. The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior.”

Not included in Hillary’s statement: any mention of returning or giving to charity all that money she took from Weinstein, the way fellow Democrats such as Elizabeth Warren and Chuck Schumer have. On the plus side, at least she didn’t blame it on a “vast right-wing conspiracy.”

As Trump staffer Kellyanne Conway pointed out, it took Hillary about five minutes to blame the NRA for the Las Vegas shooting, but five days to speak out on Weinstein. She could easily have added that Hillary also made an oblique slap at Trump for taking one whole day to explicitly condemn white supremacist groups in Charlottesville. Michelle Obama recently claimed that women who didn’t vote for Hillary voted against their own voice, but when it comes to courageously voicing support for women who accuse a powerful sexual abuser, their “voice” had laryngitis. And not for the first time.

    I can't remember what "news source" issued this, but allegedly the DNC gave $30,000 of the $300,000 donations from weinstein to some charity. Hmmm....wonder what they did with the remaining $270,000?

    A correction on the fire story. I believe it is 3500 structures destroyed not 15,000.
