BERNIE ENDORSES JOE

UPDATE! Just as the Democratic Presidential race finally threatened to become interesting, with the possibility of Bernie Sanders holding out to force a brokered convention and playing socialist kingmaker, he surprised his supporters (and infuriated many of them) with a surprise endorsement of Joe Biden. This came much faster than his endorsement of Hillary Clinton. Bernie said Democrats must come together to defeat “the most dangerous President in the modern history of this country.” He was talking about Donald Trump, who demolished ISIS, brought back American jobs, renegotiated trade deals in our favor and was presiding over the strongest economy in history up until it was sucker-punched by some lying communists. I guess Bernie has a very different definition of “dangerous” than I do.

However, those who think that Bernie didn’t get anything in return should listen to Biden promising to work with Bernie and his campaign team to push “progressive” goals and listing “very important” issues he promises to address, like government health care, “income inequality” (the socialist ideal is that everyone makes the same amount: nothing) and legalizing illegal immigrants. In other words, if you were thinking of voting for Biden because the media sell him as the “moderate” choice, you were always being flimflammed, but now, you’re being seriously bamboozled, too. To suck up to the Bernie voters, Joe will not only move even further to the left, he won't even bother trying to hide it anymore. As Trump’s campaign spokesman put it, Bernie won’t be on ticket, but his agenda will.

So if you liked the globalization, regulatory strangulation, cozying up to China and open borders that brought us the coronavirus, then you’ll love Joe Biden 2.0.

COVID-19 UPDATE

For those who depend on us to present President Trump’s news briefings on the coronavirus without cutting away to biased commentary, here is Saturday’s briefing in full.

The major message was that the infection and death rates seem to be stabilizing and falling, a very positive trend. The key now is being able to reopen the economy without reigniting the spread of the virus.

And here is more good news: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been released from the hospital and has now tested negative for the coronavirus.

Researchers trying to figure out why the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus is deadly to some people but not others have a new study that suggests the biggest factor may be obesity.

HUCK'S HERO SALUTE

Huck’s Hero Salute: The Army asked former soldiers trained in medical fields to come back and help in the battle against the coronavirus. So far, over 25,000 have volunteered, so many there’s a backup in processing them all.

More evidence that the coronavirus was in California far earlier than anyone realized.

And if you really believe that China is trying to help the world deal with the plague that they allowed to spread around the world with their lies and cover-ups, then read this story. If you experience a spike in blood pressure, don’t worry: it’s probably not a symptom you’re sick, just that you’ve read this story.

MOUNTAINS OUT OF MOLEHILLS DEPT

Mountains Out of Molehills Dept: The media are attempting to stir up an alleged White House rift over President Trump retweeting a Twitter post that had the hashtag #FireFauci attached to it. Funny how they noticed those two words but didn’t notice the two words Trump attached to it personally: “Fake news.”

RUSSIAN COLLUSION

If you read my newsletter and website, this won’t come as news to you, but for newcomers, it’s worth repeating what the rest of the world is finally waking up to: the “Russian collusion” investigation of President Trump’s election campaign was based on a load of garbage from day one. And the people who were running it knew it was a load of garbage from day one, but still went to the FISA courts and claimed (not “sloppily” but falsely and deliberately) that it was legitimate to get warrants to spy on American citizens, even ones whom they knew were innocent.

There are now stories circulating about possible criminal indictments. I will keep hope alive that someone will finally be held to account for these outrageous, unconstitutional abuses of power, but I won’t hold my breath until I see them in jail where they belong.

REPORTER REMOVED

The White House Correspondents’ Association announced that it has removed one news outlet from its rotation of reporters allowed to cover President Trump’s coronavirus briefings. The outlet's reporter allegedly violated “social distancing” rules by standing in the back when a seat wasn’t available. The WHCA stressed, “We do not take this action lightly. This is a matter of public safety."

The facts that the reporter was there as a special invited guest of the White House press secretary and was from One America News Network, the only conservative news outlet represented, and that he asked questions that pointed up the raging bias of the other reporters rather than attacking Trump, had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with it. This is purely a matter of public safety. You know, just like handing out tickets to all those churchgoers locked inside their cars at drive-in Easter services.

I’m beginning to wonder if “COVID-19” isn’t the latest euphemism for “socialism” now that it appears voters have seen through “Democratic socialism.”

LATEST WISDOM FROM THE SQUAD

Latest wisdom from “The Squad”: The government has horribly botched the response to the coronavirus, and that proves that we need the government to take over the entire health care industry so it can take the profit out of developing new drugs and vaccines. Okay, that’s the short version, but it is an accurate description of their nuttery in a nutshell.

REWRITING HISTORY DEPARTMENT

Rewriting History Dept: Liberals who defended the World Health Organization against conservatives who accused it of being a lying Chinese mouthpiece are now reframing their stories to admit that while, of course, the conservatives were engaging in a “right-wing stunt” to pin blame on the WHO, the WHO did sorta, kinda, “knowingly and consequentially mislead us.”

Well, thank goodness they only knowingly and consequentially misled us instead of lying to us!

FANATIC

Believe it or not, even with people sheltered in their homes and all small businesses such as bakeries struggling to survive, one fanatical leftist lawyer in Colorado is still badgering the same Christian cake artist who has already been legally persecuted for six years and finally prevailed in court for turning down same-sex wedding cake jobs. It must be nice to still be living in a pre-coronavirus world where you have nothing better to do with your time but think up pointless, petty grievances and believe that they are real problems worthy of turning into federal cases.

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

Speaking of punishing people for their religious faith, the coronavirus lockdown has brought out the Stalin in a lot of state and local petty officials. I told you about the mayor of Greenville, Mississippi, who had police give $500 tickets to people who attended a drive-in church service locked securely inside their individual cars. Fortunately, a judge put the kibosh on that, pointing out that it was a targeted violation of religious freedom, since if being in cars spread the virus, the Mayor would have shut down every parking lot and drive-through, which he did not. Only the churches.

Unfortunately, that kind of judicious wisdom doesn’t prevail everywhere, with the Kentucky state government threatening to take down the license plate numbers in church parking lots on Easter and force 14-day quarantines of the cars’ owners…

…And Illinois state police threatening both civil and criminal penalties against people who attended an Easter church service.

WORST GOVERNOR IN AMERICA

With so much competition in the “use a crisis to act like a dictator” sweepstakes, it’s tough to stand out, so kudos to first-term Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for earning the title of “Worst Governor in America” for her series of draconian executive orders that have been widely described as “insane.” For instance, banning people from buying seeds at Walmart, even though the store is open and the seeds are on the shelves, but she thinks planting a garden during spring garden planting time is “non-essential.” It's also utterly irrelevant to preventing the spread of the virus.

At last check, a change.org petition to recall her had over 152,000 signatures, and a Facebook page opposing her policies had over a quarter million members.

Yet, if there’s any doubt that Internet wags are right when they say, “How are you liking your 30-day free trial of socialism?” consider this: Whitmer’s name has been seriously floated as a running mate for Joe Biden. The DNC must think that dictatorial insanity is a winning theme for a national election. Or maybe it's all they've got.

    Easter Sunday and he arose with a bang and Tornados and a Chinese Communist Party Virus raging and a media still trying to blame the President for existing and upsetting their playhouse and the WHCA demonstrating thier absolute Socialist bent, and as the storms raged I was blessed with losing Internet service and TV until today. I awoke Monday and felt I had time traveled back to my youth, 1938-1948, because All was quite; No TV, No Internet, No Wi-Fi, No Political discourse. Truly a time when common sense prevailed and the Family Unit was still intact and Communism, Socialism was called out for the Evil it was. We had defeated Fascism and still spoke English and wrote in Cursive. Then it occurred to me that I had on many occasions expressed the Idea that since the end of WWII America had become soft and could Never Muster the Industrial might exhibited by men like my Dad and Millions like him, who volunteered to duplicate the courage of our Founders by signing on to Give All for this Republic . Historically less than 3% of the population has stepped up to defend American Principles by bearing Arms while the 97% was still enjoying the "FREEDOM" to enjoy the articles spelled out in out Bill of Rights. NOW we are witness to un-Constitutional actions by Mayors, Governors and Judges while we cower for fear of attending Church Parking Lot Services? You might be given the impression that someone is sending us a message? End of Times or End Of the Republic which has shunned our Creator?

We are senior veterans that must stay home and close our hurricane shelters so we sit in the dark. The gun fire echoes through our home. They can shoot all day into the night. You can’t imagine what it’s like. They don’t have to stay at home. It’s 200 acres gun range effects over 30 homes

We feel extreme anger toward the liberal left, yet sadness for the ignorant people of America who are so incapable of thinking for themselves, have no survival abilities and allow themselves to be led around with rings in their noses, and to be brainwashed by a group of socialist morons.Trump For President 2020!

    Please use your influence on the President, and SUGGEST he is becoming OVER EXPOSED

    NO NEED for that many....and to go on so long!!!!!!!!!!! LOSES IMPACT, but not my vote!!!!!!!!!!
    HE"S DOING A GREAT JOB! A poll on whether he waited too long to react....73% of nearly 20000

    Gov. Huckabee and Sarah...can you please call President Trump and ask him to really move forward on getting America back to work...I think it’s time. I’ve been at prayerfully peaceful, trusting the Lord. But now I sense it’s time. The overboard governors need to stand down. I think an incredibly helpful thing would be the antibody test...even more than the virus test. I’m sure he’s hearing this, but I believe you and Sarah are welcome voices...spiritually, politically, sensibly, and with understanding how things work. Praying that he gets America back to work.

    Regarding the discussion of presidential power vs states power in emergencies all one has to do is think Abe Lincoln and the Civil War. I think Abe showed the states who was in charge. What if during WW2 we had 48 governors deciding how to conduct the war or better yet, let Congress pilot us through. We have supposed constitutional experts who are ignorant jackasses whose opinions are only that and nothing more. They need to expand their knowledge base before pontificating to us.

    Just an update from Ky. They did take down licences and gave citations for the people to "voluntarily" self quarantine for two weeks. This IN SPITE of the fact that the District Judge for the western district , issued a restraining order forbidding the Mayor and police for doing so. isn't that contempt of court? Also, the troopers and police were ordering the people to roll down their car windows so they could be handed the tickets and citations. According to all the photos i have seen , in both cases in ky and the others states,NONE of the cops had masks on. The only time the churchgoers were exposed to any possible contamination, was when the unmasked police made them open the window and HANDED them the tickets. You might go on the Louisville Ky courier journal and read the stories by their reporter Sarah ladd and the photo slideshows showing this. Thanks

    Mr. Huckabee,

    Perhaps Sanders and company refer to President Trump as "the most dangerous president in the modern history of this country" is because he IS dangerous to leftists like Sanders and his ilk (most of the modern Democratic Party) as more people are beginning to see through his (their) "pie-in-the-sky" promises for what they are: Manure droppings from flying elephants.

    Thank you for your pithy, informative newsletter. I don't always have time to watch President Trump's news briefings, so I come here for an accurate update. Thank you for providing a trustworthy news source. I am grateful for your daily publications, as well as, the verse of the day. As a homeschooling parent (even prior to the coronavirus crash course), my daughter and I love your Learning Our History videos. We are huge fans of all things Huckabee!

    Maybe Gov. Whitmer was thinking flower seeds - you know, "Yeah, there dead, but since you can't even bury them, why bother to (grow and) send flowers - it's non-essential." The good part is that selecting her would put Trump over the top before the RNC even starts; tell your Dem. friends she should be their choice.

  • Patricia A. Pacini

    04/14/2020 02:47 AM

    Yes, it is a very sad day in America, when people cannot even buy seeds to feed themselves, or use this lock down as a time to start a garden. If people are out shopping anyway and getting their groceries at Walmart, why would buying seeds spread this virus any quicker. Governor Huckabee, you are right, when you say that this is a practice run for the coming Socialism! And yes, I have heard the same rumor as you did, about Governor Whitmer being a possible running mate for Joe Biden. Let us all be praying that President Trump wins the Fall election. We cannot afford to have the other side be running our country.

    Gotta just smh---not long ago the socialist leaning left was denouncing the President for his "draconian" actions such as banning travel from the country where the virus originated. But, in the more recent weeks, see no insanity that some of these same screamers are now mandating actions even MORE draconian that the President. I can never figure out--are they so stupid that they don't have a clue how stupid all this is? Or, are they hoping the citizens won't realize how stupid it all is. At least there are voters in MI who not only recognize the governor is going round the bend, they are standing up to her. Hope the recall works and gives the people of VA among others the inspiration to take care of their own states.

    A recent apparently fact checked post on Facebook suggests that the far left with it's money backers such as Soros and Gates, others that seek to keep the economy shut down for 18+months until a vaccine is developed, or even letting the weak and seniors, such as you and I simply die of the virus as we are drains on the economy and government are seeking a world economic collapse in pursuit of establishing the prophetic one world order. What do you think?

    It is a sad day in America when people were arrested for attending drive-in church services. Next Sunday, local church-goers need to occupy the Sonics and liquor stores lots from 8am till noon. See what local law enforcement officers do about such gatherings. Have a different church congregation occupy the businesses each hour. As long as people are ordering from Sonic, the business locations probably would be okay with it. More than likely, the liquor stores probably won't be open before 11am. Where are the "citizen's arrest" guys - Goober and Gomer - plus Barney to sing the solo special music when we need them? Oh my!

    I was rolling with laughter Monday evening when President Trump ripped the media up one side and down the other!!! Way to go, Mr. President!!!!!!! Just loved it! WOOHOO!

    One day closer...still virus free!
