    In Depth News Stories

    November 11, 2021

    THE EVENING EDITION By Mike Huckabee

    Good evening! Here are some stories from me that I think you will want to read. Topics include:

    • Election Update
    • Kyle Rittenhouse Update
    • OSHA Mandate Woes
    • And Much More...




    All the votes now being counted, New Jersey Democrat Senate President Steve Sweeney has finally conceded to Edward Durr, the underfunded underdog truck driver who was given so little a chance of winning that Sweeney laughed at him when he asked for a debate.

    My suggestion for Sweeney still holds: America needs truck drivers a lot more than we need arrogant political hacks, and a position just opened up for a truck driver in New Jersey. Happy trails!

    Of course, I'm only joking. No displaced liberal politician ever has to find a real job. There's always a safety net waiting to save them from honest labor. For instance, if you’re a liberal politician whose unpopular radical views caused you to be rejected by the voters, never fear: a good-paying position awaits you in the Joe Biden Administration:


    I told you about the man who claimed that activists were secretly photographing the jurors to intimidate them to vote guilty or face retaliation. It’s not clear whether that was true or these stories are related, but the judge announced that someone had been caught secretly recording the jury. The video was deleted.

    Rittenhouse did something most lawyers advise against and took the stand in his own defense. That can get you into big trouble if you’re facing a sharp, competent prosecutor. Luckily for him, that’s hardly the case here. This prosecutor actually thought he’d hit on a “Perry Mason” moment by asking Rittenhouse why he was running toward a fire with a fire extinguisher in his hand.

    The judge blasted the prosecutor for making a “grave constitutional violation” by mentioning Rittenhouse giving up his right to remain silent in front of the jury.

    Afterward, the prosecution rested its case, and the judge dropped one minor charge of breaking curfew.

    Even some liberal commentators are admitting that their certainty that this wasn’t self-defense has been shaken. You can tell the trial is going badly for the prosecution because liberal media outlets are resorting to attacking the judge and calling him a white supremacist (he was appointed by a Democrat) so that if Rittenhouse is acquitted, they can blame it on him being coddled by a racist judge and not on the evidence and testimony.

    Sadly, a lot of people who actually rely on these people for accurate news (which is like relying on Ben & Jerry for diet tips) may be misinformed enough to riot over the alleged “racist verdict” in a trial that was decided on the evidence and had nothing to do with race (Rittenhouse and all three people shot are white.) And while that might be terrible for America, the cities where it happens, and the people and businesses that will suffer, it will give more video footage to the irresponsible, biased media outlets that lit the fuse that set off the bomb. Is it any wonder polls show Americans trust the media less than almost anyone other than Congress?


    In the same spirit as “They can’t jail all of us,” OSHA has admitted its 1850 inspectors can’t enforce a vaccine mandate on 130 million workers at 8 million job sites. So they’ll rely on fellow workers to rat to the government and turn in their colleagues who aren’t vaccinated.

    If you think this is unconstitutional government overreach, there might be an easier solution than you thought: just say “no” to being a fink.

    But if that’s not enough, 11 major supply chain trade groups just filed a federal lawsuit to block the vaccine mandate before it messes up the supply chain even worse than it already is.


    When California Gov. Gavin Newsom goes for very long without sticking his face in front of a camera, it’s news. So when he disappeared right after getting both a flu shot and a COVID booster shot, rumors flew that he’d had an adverse reaction. His staffers denied that, but sources told the Daily Mail that he did suffer muscle weakness and fatigue.

    I wonder if the vaccine mandaters realize how much they’re undermining the public’s trust when they refuse to admit that some people have adverse reactions? We used to hear that there was a small risk, but that it outweighed the risk of the disease. However, this latest attempt to vilify and silence anyone who even brings up the subject, even if they personally experienced it (see Eric Clapton), does nothing but fuel suspicions that officials are underreporting adverse reactions. If Newsom had a reaction but got over it, saying so would do more to ease people’s fears than disappearing for a week while rumors and speculation run rampant. Do these people know nothing about human nature?


    President Biden has finally noticed that gas prices are way too high, so he’s going to do something about it: he’s directing the National Economic Council to focus on ways to reduce energy costs.

    So if you thought that his ordering the Attorney General to investigate oil companies for price gouging was a clueless response to the consequences of his own actions, this one-ups it. If they really want to reduce fuel prices (which I don’t believe because the left has been quite open about wanting much higher gas prices to “force” people to use less), when when all the bureaucrats are through jawboning and pointing fingers, maybe they could stop waging war on the domestic fuel industry and let them produce some oil and gas? It’s a crazy idea, but it just might work.


    The US Chamber of Commerce says that the now-$1.75 trillion spending bill that Nancy Pelosi is trying to pass will actually cost far more than that. They say the bill uses “gimmicks” to cover up over $1 trillion in spending.,hp1bt

    Wait, they’re saying that a massive Democrat spending bill is going to cost far more than they’re admitting? And that Nancy Pelosi isn’t being completely honest with us? Well, knock me over with a dandelion!


    During the tragically bungled evacuation of Afghanistan, about 1300 unaccompanied children were accidentally separated from their parents or guardians and brought to the US alone. Now, the Biden Administration doesn’t know what to do with them.

    Well, since Biden thinks that separating children from families that are trying to enter the US is an outrageous crime deserving of $450,000 compensation, then he’d better figure out where to get $585 million to pay them all off.

      I have lived in the Northern part of the country for my lifetime with the exception of a couple of years I worked for an International airline and met with people from around the country being in the military and served abroad in a nation where people were small in size however large in intellect I have travel to many places where people live differently some are bombastic aggressive some are polite some are religious some are not when Donald Trump was considered non presidential today I thank God he was my president Donald came from a place where delicate people were the norm so the adjustment of the delicate people was very hard that is what has led to todays complete disaster now the delicate people wish they were not so cowardly it takes a person that is tough courageous sometimes downright mean to lead a country of delicate people they say 80 million of them are in the country today the polls say you can cut that by 2/3 rds the delicate are now seeing the value of a person of Donald J Trump as I have all along. I never judged him by his words only by his actions and his action was great by me. Remember delicate people you became prey for a demon like Joe Biden.

      "If you think this is unconstitutional government overreach, there might be an easier solution than you thought: just say 'no' to being a fink."

      I could add a few things to say to any jumped-up "Karen" who thinks that it's a good idea to be a fink.

      In regards to point 7 above(Afghan withdrawal) how many Americans or allies are left in Afghanistan? Biden needs to get them out if they’re still alive and reunite them with their kids.

      With todays social and political climate I believe that is what needs to be changed. Today call me a Racist call me what ever you want sticks and stones will hurt me but todays name calling can just go pound sand you are meaningless to me I have had a disregard to all the bleeding hearts a long time ago yesterday I had a negative outlook at the body piercings the primal hair stylings the body pictures people into their skins today I look at them at as artists mangle yourself anyway u want I will look at you as entertainment no charge so teens walk around half undressed you got what others want give to them they will take it anyway biden embraces that behavior. Democrats behavior is not what I like I will insulate myself from them I today will not pierce my body I will not paint myself in a permanent way when I was a teen I didn't know what maturity was my parents kept me under control until I was legal to do what I wanted in some cases most kids should be restrained from doing life long activity getting pregnant raped overdosed murdered or murdering theft addicted these are traits Democrats today are giving the population it is the ruination of a civil society all I pray for is my grandchildren can escape the Democrat ways my Sons are working hard to prevent that to keep my grandchildren free and happy with a chance of living with God and his country. I think we have a chance biden is doing everything he can to destroy one nation under God maybe thats why the Pope had the camera turned off biden runs with the Devil. I still think biden needs more exposure as to how is has embraced the Devil's ways.

      Hello Mr. Huckabee,
      While on a recent weeklong get-a-way my husband and I took a little time to watch TV in our hotels along the way. It was very interesting to note that over 80-90% of the commercials featured black folks going about their life. There were ads for SUVS, college degrees, cell phone service, energy production, clothing stores, jewelry, energy production, restaurants, concerts, sporting events, movies, and even air fresheners. Name a commercial and 9 times out of 10 there would be a person of color enjoying the pursuit of happiness...just like us white folks. Perhaps the advertisers were merely filling the 'woke folks' quotas for actors of color, we don't know, but this sure solidified our view that America IS Not RACIST. Just watch turn on the TV and watch the commercials.

      Mr. Huckabee,
      I wish to bring a horrible threat to your attention. Our government is forcing farmers to destroy their crops. Please go to or to and search for “destroy crops “ to get the story.
      This could destroy our nation! Please help get the word out.

      Biden is being told by his minions that it’s okay if he violates the Constitution and laws duly passed years ago as there are no consequences. I understand why Congress doesn’t say anything with it being run by lefties, but where are the Republicans hiding. It seems to me that it’s time for both the conservative men AND women develop some (I shall use the polite terminology) intestinal fortitude and fight back. Yes conservatives are generally a polite bunch, not give to a lot of name calling and bombastic rhetoric, except for Donald of course, but it may be time to ratchet it up. Where is the GOP leadership? How can people as rational ss Senator Manchin even stay with DNC? The lefties are violating everything, lying about everything and nothing happens to them. Tis’ a puzzlement.

      As a Nam vet I am sick at the criminal neglect the VA has committed against my group and other vets. Calling us "heroes" and "thank you for your service" is only virtue signaling by all who attempt to avoid responsibility. This includes churchgoers.
      I ran into a younger one who would not not believe that Marxism is evil. I saw people in Singapore with altars to Mao! It will take a might move of God on His people and the rest of the nation.
      The Republican Party has already surrendered for the cash! It will take a totally new party built on Constitutional and Biblical values!

    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.
