Mars Here We Come

By Mike Huckabee

Congratulations to all the scientists, engineers and others who helped accomplish yesterday’s milestone landing of the rover Perseverance on the surface of Mars.

The mission was timed for the closest alignment of Earth and Mars, but that still meant a trip of 300 million miles, or seven months of traveling – so far away that radio signals from Percy (the rover’s nickname) take nearly 12 minutes to reach Earth. It will spend the next two years drilling into the Martian surface to collect rock samples, which will be brought back by another rocket by 2031 to search for signs of bygone microscopic life. Let's hope that by that time, there are still signs of intelligent life on Earth.

Two other spacecraft, from the UAE and China, are also orbiting Mars. China also plans to send down a small rover to seek signs of life. And if it finds any, to immediately oppress it.

Texas Update

By Mike Huckabee

Amazingly, leftist politicians and commenters are trying to blame the power outages in Texas on Republican policies, even though they are mostly due to Texas adopting the kind of “green energy” push that the leftists want to impose nationwide (wind power turbines froze due to the unusually cold weather.) But their jaw-dropping lack of self-awareness doesn’t stop there. Some are arguing that Texas, indeed, all red states, need to be like California. Even President Biden recently said he wants to “make America California again,” the second-most bone-chilling thing he’s ever said, right behind claiming that Chinese brutality is just a “cultural norm.”

They’re overlooking the fact that Texas, having made a tragic error in listening to the wrong people, is now trying to investigate and correct it as quickly as possible. They also made a tough decision to have rolling power outages this week that might have prevented catastrophic grid failure and months of blackouts.

California, however, has suffered for years from widespread power outages caused by their attempts to mandate green energy use without reliable sources to provide it, as well as out of control wildfires, epidemic homelessness and other manmade catastrophes directly caused by their leftist leaders. All of these problems are only getting worse, but the voters just keep reelecting the same people. It’s as if their brains are suffering a power outage.

All those like Biden who think the California model is superior to the Texas model conveniently overlook the fact that Californians are fleeing to Texas in droves, just as residents of the liberal Northeast are fleeing to Florida and Georgia (unfortunately, many then vote for the same policies that forced them to flee – again, it’s the brain power outage.)

So to settle the issue, economist Daniel J. Mitchell of has been writing a series of articles comparing the policies of California and Texas and their results. Here’s his latest installment:

It’s enlightening, but not surprising. Not if you just go to and compare the cost to rent a 15-foot moving van from L.A. to Dallas ($3,032), compared to renting one from Dallas to L.A. ($1,175.) They’ll subsidize that move just to get their trucks back to L.A. because hardly anyone is moving in that direction anymore.


California Democrats Suddenly Become Interested In Ballot Fraud

By Mike Huckabee

The petition to get a recall of California Gov. Gavin Newsom onto the ballot has reached the needed 1.4 million signatures, and organizers are pushing to get at least 300,000 extra before the March 17th deadline, to overcome any objections to signatures. But that might not be nearly enough.

Amazingly, once Newsom's own job was on the line, California election officials have suddenly become intensely concerned about signature matching to prevent ballot fraud. KCRA-TV surveyed 45 county registrars’ offices and they say that out of 1,020,165 signature submitted, only 560,365 are considered close enough matches to be valid. That’s a signature match rejection rate of about 45%.

The California signature match rejection rate in the 2020 Presidential election: 0.6%.

Reports are that Newsom’s strategy to avoid a recall is to impose such strict signature matching that hardly any signatures will be considered valid. Or as Democrats would call anything even a fraction as rigorous: “VOTER SUPPRESSION!” Former President Trump tweeted that this is the same way Democrats kept Kanye West off the ballot in his home state.

So attention, Californians: there are 39.5 million of you, and surely no more than a couple of million at most are doing better under Newsom than they would under just about anybody else. The other 37 million or so of you have until March 17th to sign the petition at And you might want to trace your signature from your drivers’ license.

Well, here’s some good news

By Mike Huckabee

after President Biden’s soft-pedaling of Chinese brutality at the CNN townhall as being different “cultural norms,” the White House and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi both felt it a good time to express their view that genocide is wrong and should be strongly and vocally opposed, even when China does it. I will take them at their word that this is indeed their sincere, longstanding belief and not, say, frantic damage control.

Speaking of that townhall, Biden made so many false claims that (brace yourself) even CNN felt forced to fact-check him, and you know they’d rather saw off their own right arms with a rusty blade than do that. But note how they twist themselves into pretzels to give him every benefit of the doubt about what he “really meant” if there were any possible positive interpretation. That’s a courtesy that I bet Trump wishes the media had extended to him even once in four years.

Read through these and imagine CNN’s reaction if Trump had said these things: “LYING LIAR WHO LIES!!!”

Jobless Claims On The Rise

By Mike Huckabee

Thursday, the Labor Department reported that new weekly jobless claims “unexpectedly” rose by 13,000 to 861,000. Our easily-surprised economists had expected unemployment claims to fall to 768,000. Maybe they haven’t been keeping up with the news that our President is using a series of executive orders to destroy just about every job in America in exchange for promises of government-financed new jobs building windmills sometime in the vague future.

America The Beautiful

God's creation is all around us.

    Gov. Mike:
    In the TX update you said about CA's problems, "...the voters just keep reelecting the same people."
    Is it really the voters or the Dominion voting machines?! ;)
    At least Newsome is getting serious about valid signatures now. But that'll only last until he, or the machines, defeat his recall!

    Just so you know, there has been voter fraud in CA since the 60s, but the rest of the country has finally picked up on how it is done with precision. You said CA voters should wake up, but every time we try to vote out the people who don't belong in office, they suddenly find extra ballots and change the true vote. The voters we speak to don't even vote because they know it doesn't matter what the people want. That is why the CA state assembly is 98% democrat.

    Governor Huckabee, we were wondering what your reaction was to Lou Dobbs being 'axed' from Fox?
    We haven't seen any mention of this in your newsletters, or maybe we just missed it.
    This made us sad since we watched him a lot and felt that he was always up front and was telling the truth.
    He was a strong conservative and a Patriot.

    Recalling Newsom, Living here in California, I know that I have signed the Petitions at least three times just to make sure that if I sign it slightly differently one of them will be accepted. Plus, they are now saying if you signed before June 5, 2020, you need to sign again. I don't recall the last time I signed. I am now feeling that we need to start recalling the entire Blue Squad from California and that will Drain unplug the Swamp both in t California and DC.

    China will continue to be an issue to the US until we get the Blue and RINO Criminals out of Washington, they have "greased" too many hands in the Swamp Pool. Those people need to have their investments and bank accounts investigated. I have a difficult time seeing how a person who goes to Washington, DC making a Representative's Salary per year, ends up making ten-fold that on their tax returns? Same with Obamas and Clintons? How are these people making the money when us taxpayers are not paying them that much? Someone is loading up their pockets!

    If anyone didn't see your last article on the Jobless Claims as a surprise, they must have had their heads in the mud. I saw this coming since Election Day. The minute MSM announced that Sleepy Joe won the Election, I started telling friends to watch that following Inauguration Day, Gas Prices will soar, Jobless Claims will soar, Crime will go up, Homelessness will rise, and more claims of Racism will begin. Well if you look around all have started in less than a month. And Billy and Melinda Gates are the ones Claiming Math is Racist because it wants the "correct answer!" Well, if it starts with Mathematics, where will it end?

    This was pleasant reading once again. Having a good laugh at the mess we're in is far better than taking it seriously for a change. Maybe we can just enjoy a bumpy ride for a few years.

    I have been praying for the Lord to anoint and raise a group to come together as conservative leaders. Those on my list include Mike Huckabee, Franklin Graham, Ben Carson, Mike Pence, Mark Walker, Dan Patrick, Ron Desantis, Ben Stein, Allen West, Mike Rowe and Kristi Noem. Admittedly, I don’t know the full scale of their politics, but I decided to pray for a diverse group. My question is, what can we do to encourage leaders to work together toward a united, God following country?

    I can't thank you & your staff enough for your honest opinions of the daily events. I like the daily verse & pictures of God's creation. Unfortunately, I will never be able to see them in person, so I really enjoy them in your newsletters.
    My prayers go out to all the Texans during this very trying time.
    I'm so depressed what the Biden Admin is doing to this country on every issue that President Trump did to Make America Great. What I read about Rush Limbaugh's death & the awful evil comments made, made me sick. What evil is this? Attacking the dead--what country are we living in? So shameful!

    I would love to see Americans turn the MSM off and turn the radio on to a Conservative station while driving or while doing chores for a few hours turn on a evangelic station for a hour half hour and get away from the murders in your leftist cities the criminal acts against Human beings on the streets we need a format for time out of the day to be reinforced how wonderful Americans are and the beauty of our Religious beliefs we as Americans can shove the Communist agenda of this country's oval office back into the abyss where large serpents and monsters reside. An act of civility kindness every American should do everyday will take America away from the Bidens counter Biden with kindness to each other yes all Americans can do this leave the darkness of the MSM, Conservative outlets will keep America up and our Congress needs to change get moral people making decisions for this country lifelong Congress members are the root of the evil empire the DC Swamp really does need to be drained. 2022 is the start this country needs Constitutional people to operate this country bring back American value restore the rights of the American Citizen. Vote the Constitution This country must reject the Swamp Creatures phony accusations coverups and the dismissal of the Constitution beware of phony Supreme court judges and fake Catholics.

    I'm extremely concerned that the illegitimate administration is doing irreparable damage to America.
    And though it was encouraged during President Trump's first term to say that he was not their president, it's now considered by the left to be sedition to question the validity of the present administration. I question it anyway.

    Hi Governor,
    I have been enjoying your daily emails for awhile. I look forward to hearing a voice of reasonevery afternoon.
    My reason for writing today is that I am hoping for some semblance of reason for the absolute hatred for president Trump. The man did more for our country than the previous 3 or 4 presidents combined. Why can't they see that through their hate? It really depresses me as a follower of our savior Jesus to see what the left is doing to this country of ours. I am looking for a word of hope that GOD is with us and has it all under His control.....

    Your signature is legal if you identify it by saying, "Yes, that is my signature" , or, "Yes I did sign that instrument", under common law precedent as old as the common law. This is a legal, government instrument and not technically a vote and the onus, on a government/legal/official instrument, rests with the person disputing the signature to confirm it legally, not on some technical basis, with the purported signatory. If they do argue that it sits under electoral law then this would arguably also count as, 'unequal treatment', under the U.S. Constitution. You can run but you cannot hide.

    What has happened in Texas with the horrible cold weather is awful for those living there. I have cousins who live in Texas, San Antonio actually, and they had 4 inches of snow earlier this week! I think nature has proven her point that 'green energy' is only for those who are green people from Mars. Seriously, Nature has proven its point that Nature is more powerful than humans. If you want to use 'green energy' you have to always have a back up plan because Nature doesn't really care what humans think they know about how changeable Nature is. Has nothing to do with 'climate change' as Nature is created by God and God only knows what will happen in Nature before-hand, because He created the plan. So more people need to understand God's power which surpasses any human understanding. God has also given humans a brain to think with and to use common sense with and not try to manipulate what He, God, has created. We certainly have seen what misguided 'brain functions' can cause damage to, abortion/genocide for one example, and dangerous gases spewing into the air, from China industry and over crowding there and in India, for another example. They have polluted God's creation more than any number of years that America could cause. We have trees and plants that absorb carbons, but not China, THEY are the concrete jungle, but no one comes down on them to do anything about it, because if we do, we'll get arrested and/or shot by the CCP for daring to go against their poisonous methods. But that must be okay as the Biden's and Obama's and Pelosi's , et al. are all 'in bed' with the CCP anyway. So sickening that people don't see that and how corrupted they all are !!! Must be all the marijuana that they have been using since the Woodstock years! Their brains are fried, and anything left, has been pickled away by all their booze they drink, like water. Again, poison is what poison does.

    I honestly believe Joe Biden is suffering from dementia. I wonder if "they" are letting him speak so he can eventually be replaced by Kamala Harris? I feel very sorry for him and think his wife is awful to allow this cruelty.

    I have noted that any time Biden speaks about numbers, he gets it wrong. Numbers don't seem to have any meaning to him. It's the same problem children have before they learn math. Ask any 3 year old how much something costs, and they will probably give you some really funny number.
    That is really scary considering that Biden is the one in charge of our national budget.

    I think you should continue to encourage people to listen to Mike Lindell’s Absolute Proof video on voter Fraud! It appears there is a suppression of truth on the January 6th, capital violence. From what I can tell from videos a black police officer shot and killed Ashli Babbitt. It seemed like a senseless killing. Also I believe the Democrats may have been involved in fostering the violence at the capital with BLM and Antifa groups they control. There are many false narratives being promoted like the death of the police officer that was supposed to have been killed by the rioters with a fire extinguisher.

    A challenge for the 'Fact Checkers' that look for errors in your daily scribe. Look around your present setting and find anything that is Not a rock, that is not affected by a Petroleum World. I know wood will be mentioned! How did that wood move from the forest to your wall or desk. Cut with a manual crosscut saw, milled with a crew of men using adze's, hauled by mule to the lumber endpoint. Do I need to go on? The dilemma Texas has found itself is the result of Immigration! Immigration from Failed Blue States making the LIBERALS in Austin run for cover. Biden, in his infinite ability to follow his handlers script, is reversing everything that the President put in place to make America not great again, but Self sustaining and showing what Government does best-GET OUT OF THE WAY- We have Monopoly Laws in place that Should and Could bring the Oligarchs CONTROLLING FREE SPEECH, but it will take till 2022 to accomplish. The Left will never allow anything to upset their theft of the Public treasury. I still have Faith that the message will get out in Spite of CNN, MSLSD, and Legacy media. The Oligarchs will continue to use the people who use Facebook, Twitter and Alphabet MONEY to finance their greed for being the NEW KING MAKERS!

    CA ballots for Newsom:

    If 2020 is how Dems do elections theyre is NO way they can deter voters on issue IE Verify signatures
    Didnt care then, why care now
    Works Both ways Dems OK
    Make up your mind or Shut Up
    Hope they hire illegals who cant read to match signatures.
    Comedy of errors ahead if done
