    House Votes To Impeach President Trump

    By Mike Huckabee

    Wednesday, to nobody’s surprise, the House voted to impeach President Trump a second time, on grounds that he incited the violent protesters who stormed the Capitol. They were in such a rush to impeach him before he leaves office that they didn’t take time for the standard legal procedure of presenting evidence and letting him defend himself.

    The vote was 232-197, with 10 Republicans joining the Democrats against Trump.

    One Republican, Rep. Liz Cheney, was particularly outspoken, declaring, "The president of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack. Everything that followed was his doing."

    However, the FBI later announced that they had picked up evidence of plans for violence at the Capitol as early as January 5, the day before the attack, and they suspect some of the participants left the Trump rally early to pick up supplies and meet at the Capitol.

    If so, that would mean that Trump’s speech, while it might have been irresponsible, did not incite the Capitol rioters, who planned their attack in advance and left before his speech to launch it.

    This could mark the second time the Democrats rushed to judgement to impeach Trump, only to have their efforts collapse once they left the hyper-partisan House because they substituted partisan anger for solid legal evidence. This article explains how a Senate trial might not even happen.

    Joe Biden seems to have cold feet about continuing this impeachment trial in the Senate, at least judging by his statement yesterday reminding Senators of “other urgent business” and his suggestion that they split their time between that and other things.

    The fact is that by pulling this final rebuke of Trump, the House may have undercut Biden by handing the Senate a divisive, time-wasting responsibility (a trial to remove a President who’s already left office) just as Biden will be coming into office and wanting to fast-track his agenda. Mostly because they hope to ban Trump from running again, which it's doubtful the Senate has the power to do. It also tells us that for all their vilification of Trump, they still fear he might beat them in 2024.

    Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats seem to think that they have put a real super-duper stain on Trump by impeaching him twice, but more so, they’ve stained themselves as rabid partisans and permanently devalued impeachment. Being “double-impeached” without proper procedure of evidence as he’s leaving office anyway is as hollow as Dean Wormer warning the frat boys in “Animal House” that they’re on “Double Secret Probation.”

    Impeachment of a President is the most drastic of all remedies for the most serious of offenses. It’s a grave Constitutional crisis that should be undertaken with the utmost seriousness. By talking about impeaching Trump from the moment he was elected, then impeaching him over a phone call and having the Senate throw it out -- and then impeaching him again when he’s leaving office over a riot incitement charge that not only wouldn’t pass legal muster, but if it did, the people accusing him of it would be as guilty as he is -- they’ve reduced that most solemn of last-resort responsibilities to a nakedly partisan political ploy.

    Want proof? A Georgia Republican Representative announced that she plans to introduce impeachment articles against Joe Biden the day after he takes office, over corruption related to China and Ukraine.

    Of course, it won’t go anywhere in a Democrat House. But as satisfying as it might be for Republicans who’ve had to put up with Trump being attacked from day one – and now accused of attempting a coup by the same people who enabled the Russian Collusion attempted coup, and of inciting violent rioters by people who’ve spent the past year defending violent rioters – do we really want a banana republic-style nation where impeachment is just a meaningless political weapon that every President can expect to get hurled at him by the other party, like a mudball?


    President Trump denounces mob violence

    By Mike Huckabee

    Last night, President Trump released a video message denouncing violence, lawbreaking and vandalism, and saying that’s the opposite of what the Make America Great Again movement is about.

    Trump said, "Mob violence goes against everything I believe in and everything our movement stands for…No true supporter of mine could ever endorse political violence. No true supporter of mine could ever disrespect law enforcement or our great American flag. No true supporter of mine could ever threaten or harass their fellow Americans. If you do any of these things, you are not supporting our movement. You are attacking it and you are attacking our country. We cannot tolerate it."

    It was a welcome message, mature and presidential, but I wish he’d said it last week. Now, I fear it’s too little too late.


    AOC Wants To "Liberate" The South

    By Mike Huckabee

    Stacey Lennox at PJ Media reports on the latest nonsense from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who says she wants to “liberate” Southern states run by Republicans from their “economic, social and racial oppression.” Lennox notes that between her calls to force political opponents in front of a tribunal and to have the government reign in free speech, and now her call to “liberate” people who are happy and successful, AOC is turning into a real chip off the ol’ Castro.

    She might want to take a look at how many people are fleeing her home state of New York for Southern red states (so many that New York may lose a Congressional seat and Florida gain one.) She might not realize it, but by fleeing the kind of leftist policies she champions, they’ve already liberated themselves from oppression.

    Parler Might Not Come Back

    By Mike Huckabee

    The CEO of Parler said it’s not certain if the free speech Twitter alternative will ever be able to come back. After Amazon cut off their web hosting service, they’re talking to other servers, but they don’t want their names known for fear of reprisals by leftists. A number of other companies are also refusing to do business with them, as listed at this link:

    And some of their employees say they’ve received threats and had people show up at their homes.

    Think about that: Parler’s critics claim it tolerates violent people, so their response is to make personal threats against its staff and their families.

    Parler has filed a lawsuit against Amazon citing a number of contractual violations. But Amazon claims the lawsuit has no merit, and the Washington Post agrees that Amazon was right to snuff out Parler.

    That would be the same Washington Post that’s owned by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, an example of the Big Tech monopoly on information that actually makes the case for why we need alternatives like Parler.

    But while Amazon and its pet newspaper may insist the lawsuit has no merit, other legal analysts are seeing more justification for it all the time. For instance, as Matt Margolis at PJ Media points out, there’s so far scant evidence that many of the Capitol rioters had Parler accounts or that there was any planning of the assault on Parler. But the FBI warned law enforcement agencies last week of the potential for violence because of activity they picked up on Twitter.

    So if it was planned on Twitter, but only Parler was crushed, can discrimination be added to the list of offenses in Parler’s lawsuit, and the lawsuit be extended to Apple and Google for banning Parler’s app for no just cause while allowing Twitter’s to continue being downloaded?


    New Podcast Episode

    This week on “The People’s Podcast,” Governor Huckabee talks with attorney and former DOJ prosecutor James Trusty about last week’s riots, this week’s impeachment, and the importance of reason, evidence, and fidelity to the law in our current era of hysteria. The Governor also responds to some online outrage he received this past week after condemning the rioters at the Capitol, and spoiler alert: He isn’t issuing any apologies.

      For being a GENIUS President Donald Trump is not too smart. Joseph McCarthy would find plenty of WITCHES in the Democratic Party. Just look at the Democratic attack on RELIGION

      Mike, why are you saying the president's speech may have been "irresponsible?" I haven't found anything that borders on your statement. You're not going to turn on Trump too are you, like so many Republicans?

      I have a very serious question. How can we small (but we add up to big) Republican donors ever donate again to the "party", when we don't know which of our representatives will represent us. I feel that I was betrayed by trusting Republicans to be on my side. I was just trying to help save the country but it failed in a way I wasn't expecting. This is a huge question that I think a lot of supporters as asking.

    McConnell will step down as Senate Republican Leader in November

    Mitch McConnell announced Wednesday that he will step down as Senate Republican Leader in November. He is the longest-serving party leader in US history. He did not say if this has anything to do with the criticism he’s received from conservatives or with his recent health issues that caused him to freeze up in mid-sentence a time or two. But while he will no longer be the GOP leader, he intends to continue serving in the Senate at least through the end of his current term in January 2027.

    And here’s a surprise: Robert Kennedy Jr. suggested that McConnell be replaced by Sen. Rand Paul. RFK Jr. tweeted, “It’s time to promote leaders in Washington, DC, who won’t kowtow to the military contractors or push us deeper into foreign conflicts. We need representation who will prioritize American wellness over all else. I believe Rand Paul would be an incredible successor. He’s shown great judgment and has the grit to put hardworking Americans first.”

    Get Out

    Law Professor William A. Jacobson of the Legal Insurrection blog has been watching the politicized lawfare against Trump and conservative businesses and organizations in New York, and the unprofessional threats and ugly gloating by Attorney General Letitia James about how she’s going to destroy Trump. He analyzed the situation in light of assurances by Gov. Hochul that if your business isn’t doing anything wrong, you have nothing to fear. And he arrived at this conclusion: 

    “Get out of New York, if you can.” And if you can’t leave now, “Develop an exit plan before you need it.

    Pray for the Panhandle

    Please join me in prayers today for those in the path of the huge wildfires in the Texas Panhandle and neighboring Oklahoma. There are five wildfires that are causing school closures and evacuations, including the evacuation of a nuclear power plant. The largest of them, the Smokehouse Creek Fire, covers 800 square miles and is now the second-largest wildfire in state history.

    This is a link to live updates on the fires from the Weather Channel.

    No test?!?

    The White House announced Wednesday that President Biden is making an unannounced trip to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for his yearly physical exam…which will NOT include a cognitive test. Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dismissed questions about a cognitive test, saying Biden proves his cognitive abilities "every day [in] how he operates and how he thinks."  I’m confused, is that an argument for or against a cognitive test?

    Talk about a delicious irony

    One of the strongest arguments for overturning the ruinously large fine on Trump in his New York real estate fraud case is the Eighth Amendment protection against excessive fines. The Supreme Court ruled 9-0 in 2019 that that protection does apply to state courts. And one of the strongest arguments for Trump to cite came from liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who said:

    “The prohibition embodied in the Excessive Fines Clause carries forward protections found in sources from Magna Carta to the English Bill of Rights to state constitutions from the colonial era to the present day. Protection against excessive fines has been a constant shield throughout Anglo-American history for good reason: Such fines undermine other liberties. They can be used, e.g., to retaliate against or chill the speech of political enemies.”

    I might not have agreed with many of her rulings, but judging from this, there’s no doubt she was psychic.

    Public Service Announcement

    Public service announcement to anyone thinking of donating to Harvard or sending their kids there: The co-chair of Harvard’s anti-Semitism task force resigned Monday because she has no confidence that Harvard will implement any of the task force’s recommendations to stop Jew hatred on campus.

    Related: Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media has a news round-up illustrating how bedbug crazy these pro-Palestine dingbats are and how they “have more vocal cords than brains,” from calling Jerry Seinfeld a “genocide supporter” to literally setting themselves on fire.




    Private School For Me, But Not For Thee

    Two Democrat Governors, Roy Cooper (North Carolina) and Andy Beshear (Kentucky), co-wrote an op-ed for USA Today condemning Republican attempts to give low-income parents vouchers to send their kids to the schools of their choice. They painted this as a racist conspiracy to loot the budgets of our precious public school system and set our schools back for a generation (as if the COVID lockdowns and the focus on woke politics and LGBTQ activism hadn't already set public school students back a generation.) 

    One problem: Both Democrat Governors send their own kids to elite private schools. But that’s okay because, hey, they can afford it.


    The Best People

    President Trump was roundly condemned as a racist and a xenophobe for saying of illegal immigration that other countries were not sending us their best people. So just to clarify, here’s an example of one of those best people that Joe Biden let in.
