The Good Old Days

By Mike Huckabee

This exchange between a Democrat and Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee about the corrosive effects of government handouts on people’s work ethic (which the Oklahoma Republican saw firsthand in his stepdad as a kid) reminds me of the good old days when Ted Kennedy used to lecture Republicans about how we didn’t know what it was like to be poor. I think John Kerry fulfills that role now.

Twitter Strikes Again

By Mike Huckabee

The latest victim of Twitter’s war on unapproved free speech from conservatives is James O’Keefe Project Veritas. That account has been permanently suspended for “repeated violations of Twitter’s private information policy.”

That suspension (and a since-lifted suspension of O’Keefe’s personal account) was sparked by a video of a Project Veritas reporter confronting Facebook Vice President Guy Rosen about their policy of freezing accounts for alleged “hate speech.” The reporter asked Rosen, “How do you define hate speech? Is it just speech that you hate?” Rosen wouldn’t answer.

Twitter demanded that the clip be taken down, and O’Keefe refused. Twitter claims they are guilty of repeated violations of Twitter’s policies prohibiting sharing or threats of sharing other people’s private information without consent. Normally, sharing private information of public interest that someone doesn't want shared is called “journalism,” just like “60 Minutes” and every other undercover journalism outfit has been practicing it for decades. Except Project Veritas does it to expose the left, so that doesn't count.

O’Keefe said Twitter offered to lift the suspension if the clip was taken down, but he refused, comparing it to their same demand that the New York Post remove its tweets about Hunter Biden’s laptop, even though the story turned out to be true. He said, “I will not kneel. Twitter is wrong. Let them kneel.”

This is just the latest prominent conservative voice to be silenced by Twitter, following radio host Wayne Allan Root, who warned, “I’m just telling you, they took me. Soon they’re coming for you.”

This is why I maintain my own website and email newsletter, as well as social media accounts on as many platforms as possible. I urge all conservatives to sign up for alternative services such as Parler (when it comes back), Rumble, MeWe and others that I expect to pop up at an ever-increasing rate (and subscribe to me wherever you land.) Let’s make Twitter rue the day that they thought they were so powerful and important that they could bully, censor and silence 75 million Americans.

Help Twitter discover to their regret that they needed us a lot more than we needed them. May they be the MySpace of the 2022 election.

How Bad Were The House Impeachment Managers?

By Mike Huckabee

If anyone is actually keeping up with the “impeachment” farce (I can almost feel the public’s interest evaporating, like the air being sucked out of a room when a dying comic stays on too long), this is a good article from a lawyer’s standpoint about how bad the House impeachment managers’ case is:

I’m not an attorney, but it seems obvious that when you have to start dragging up out-of-context quotes the defendant said years ago that are irrelevant to the issue at hand, and including known fake news like the “very fine people among the white supremacists” hoax, you might as well just say, “We have no case. Sorry for wasting everyone’s time. The prosecution rests.”

Rising Oil and Gas Prices

By Mike Huckabee

In case you hadn’t noticed, just since the election, the price of oil has risen by nearly 50% and gas prices are up by 18%. And with President Biden using executive orders to kill the fossil fuel industry so that we can all drive electric cars charged by wind power from the flapping of magical fairies’ wings, an expert from Princeton Energy Advisors estimates that gas could cost over $4 a gallon by 2022.

Maybe Biden isn't worried since he figures all our businesses and schools will still be locked down, so we’ll have no place to drive, anyway.

Another energy industry expert added, “In four years [under Trump], we had made the U.S. energy-independent and denied the bad guys the ability to control global oil prices. The Democrats undo it in two weeks. Just incredible.”

Naturally, he asked to remain anonymous. Telling the truth is dangerous these days.

“Hey, They’re Good Folks!”

By Mike Huckabee

Have you been worried about all the recent stories of university academics being busted for their hidden ties to the communist government of China? Like this…

Are you concerned about Beijing infiltrating our universities, stealing our information and indoctrinating your kids into their totalitarian communist worldview?

Well, worry no more! President Trump’s rule requiring schools to reveal their partnerships with Confucius Institutes that have been called Chinese communist propaganda outlets has been revoked by President Biden. That should lead to far fewer stories about academics who collude with the Chinese communist government being exposed.

    Good evening Governor
    I have been thinking about cancel culture and the conservative response. I think we are wrong- we should embrace it and return it. Choose any "woke" and pull their life apart and out them on Facebook (i know we aren't going there, but should be the exception). See how they like being canceled by their own.

    Everyone whose livelihood has been cut off by the Keystone Pipeline shutdown (the men and women working on it, motel owners who housed some of the men when in their area, restaurant owners who fed them when they were there) should join in a class-action suit against President Biden. It was his stroke of the pen that created this great soon-to-be hardship, and no one else's pen. His alone. His disregard for humanity. His arrogance. Go for it, you people!

    Thanks for another informative newsletter on all important issues. But, I was thinking, I think we should cancel the word "unity" because this isn't happening in the Biden administration. What he has done with all the EO's, really put the knife in the backs of the citizens. I don't believe he even knows what he's signing & the ramifications. He will never move to the center. I think he's afraid to stand up against the socialist in the House!!

    I'm a Trump supporter, but I don't think Washington, DC is through with him. I do pray he stays quiet for a while & watch his words. I hope he has learned his lesson. I always wonder, what happened to the silence of 2 hrs. that he didn't stop this tragedy at the Capitol??
    I hope the paid Congressman/woman/Senators can get back to serving the country in a positive way which they are paid for.
    Oh, BTW, did you see Pelosi wavering her hands & acting like someone really ruffled her feathers, or plucked them one-by-one when she was speaking after the verdict was announced?

    Below is part of a comment by Bill O'Reilly....
    History should record two things. First, that President Trump hurt his country by embracing destructive after-election tactics.

    Secondly, that the Democratic Party, actively aided by a corrupt corporate media, persecuted Donald Trump in an unfair and unprecedented manner throughout his entire tenure in office and beyond.
    And that’s the truth.

    Per Fox News - "The seven GOP senators who joined with all Democrats in finding Trump guilty were: Sens. Richard Burr of North Carolina, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania."

    They should all be removed as soon as possible, by any means possible (legal means of course), and be made an example of. Not only did they vote for impeachment that was based on a lie, but they also joined with the Democrats to perpetuate the election fraud. To date, no one has said that the votes would be audited. They are all afraid of what would happen when the evidence proves out that the election was indeed a fraud and that Trump should still be in office.

    I was reading an article this morning which included this information:
    MAO will not merely require other federal agencies to buy from American businesses. The Biden administration has signaled it will also mandate that the federal government buy from U.S. businesses that pursue certain left-wing goals.
    Isn't this illegal? I worked for DoD US Army for 18 years as the Equipping Budget Analyst for Army Aviation. I know the Army had regulations they followed for procuring equipment, I never saw anything that the business had to be right or left wing! Is this true? Can he mandate this?

    Comrade Biden is doing all he can to bring down America in the time he has in the Oval office he is doing as much dirty works before Harris takes over in 2022 Biden should complete what Obama couldn't get done or Clinton was suppose to if she could have won. The Left lost 4 years of destroying America and the Comrade in charge is making up for lost time. Remember China is on time table to become the only power the planet has and the four years of Trump only slowed its quest for a moment in time China has increased it s speed to world dominance with Biden's wind pushing China closer to its goal

    Warnock being investigated for voter registration fraud. Cuomo's nursing home cover-up of elderly deaths (abuse) is now surfacing.
    Newsom on the verge of being recalled in California.
    Trump's legal team ripping the DC DIMS up one side and down the other in the impeachment "trial". Trump was acquitted...again!

    My, oh my! Has GOD started HIS dismantling of the Democratic Party?
    Could be the main reason HE moved President Trump out of the way...so HE could drain the swamp HIS way! HE knows how to handle the biggest, the meanest alligators...no AMOS MOSES needed! What you cover, HE will uncover! Be sure your sin will find you out!

    Isn't it interesting that even our local newspaper reported that President Trump was acquitted. Actually our 'local paper' is really produced in Watertown, NY, a good 4 hours away from Batavia, NY. Anyway, it is interesting how the 'story the Dems are trying to sell', is that the GOP has splintered because of President Trump. Well, actually it is the opposite, the GOP is more unified now because of President Trump, it is the Democrats who are splintered more now since President Trump exposed their racism, sexism, ageism, etc., against those they say they are trying to help. The real reason I believe the 'trial' ended was because the Dems know what they did, that they made antifa and blm's dress up as Trump supporters and they were the insurrectionists, NOT the Trump Supporters and they knew the proof would be shown next week from President Trump's defense lawyers, and legitimate witnesses, and the Dems. don't want the truth about them shown at any cost.... The Dems KNOW they cheated at the election and are the ones that need to be impeached, NOT President Trump. And they are covering their backsides as they always do, and try to blame it on everyone else except themselves. "Okay for me but not for thee" idiot-mentality. The media truly underestimates those who Love America and are not just supporters of President Trump, but are supporters of the American Way of Life, government by the people, for the people, and of the people, NOT over the people like the Dems. Dictators are doing.

    Oh, Mike,

    Where do I start tonight?

    First let's thank Our Father in Heaven for this Beautiful Day!

    Now, How many "I told you so!'s " are being shouted out tonight on Zoom, Facebook, Twitter, and all other Social Medias? Wonder how many $15. quarts of Ice Cream and $50 of Wine Nancy Pelosi are chugging down tonight to drown her sorrows, that this last rocket at the USS Donald J Trump, went way over the bow and may have actually hit the DNC Dinghy.

    I just cannot understand how so many people can be so set against one person, who has done so much good for our nation that they want to destroy him and his family. I believe they are all due for a psychiatric exam.

    In your piece on the Oil and Gas prices. I found that very interesting. I had a 4 year old picture popup on Facebook Tuesday, it showed the gas prices on that day, they were $1.94/gal. today at the same Station, it was $3.29/gal. it's amazing what happens when you switch the parties in control of the oil.

    As to Social Media outlets, I believe it is time for someone to take the control out of the hands of the Czars. Jack and Mark have shown that they don't play well with others and can't share their toys with others like they should. They think that if you say something they don't like they can delete it and then block you our suspend your access for as long as they like. It is time for a change where if you offer a Social Media outlet, then you should allow it to be a freedom of speech, with the exception of those things that violate sections of morality, and decency.

    I haven't been worried about those stories about the Universities and Chinese relations. What I am concerned about it the fact is that it has gone on without DHS close monitoring. They should have been watching the actions with a fine tooth comb.

    Thank you so much for keeping our days sane. and God Bless you.. You sure you can't convince Sarah to move to California to take on Newsom to become the next Governor? Just kidding, my family in Arkansas are already set to vote for her! And if I can convince my wife to retire and move, we will be coming out and voting for her to.

    Our great new UNIFYING President could not have been nastier with his response to today’s acquittal. I wonder as he was thinking about the people injured and who died, if he gave any thought to the many, many riots, that burned and looted and killed and injured far more because of emotions being stirred up by his party.

    Perhaps, Harris should never impeached as should think raising money to get these protestors out jail would encourage more riots. I can think of a number of things coming down the pike,
    Like the likely results of not sending back certain criminals who are illegal immigrants. Biden should be held responsible for each death resulting from another DWI or drugs sold by these freed people. The precedent has been set.
    If you have two DWIs it is likely there will be more. Read today where it could be that Catholic priests will start withholding communion from those who publicly support and encourage abortion.

    Best news of the day!! Well, of the year, so far--the impeachment didn't work--again!! Hopefully the 6 Republicans who voted FOR impeachment will never be elected again. I was worried about one of the Senators from my state--he had been acting kind of like he drank the kookaide lately, but I was pleased to see he was not one of the ones who voted for it.

    So, please tell me why Republicans can’t be unified? I can’t for the life of me, after all the good things that happened during the Trump administration for our country that some Rino republicans are still strongly against Trump. What am I missing??

    Since Biden has been in office all he has done is cause one after another disaster for the unions that backed him. His non-existence COVID-19 Rescure plan, His 1.9 Trillion Dollar Stimulus Plan that is having problems and his recent annoucement for the interstructure plan of another over 2 Trillion Dollars. By the time the children back into the classroom , the teachers will be planning for their summer vacation. Say for example, whrn they return the School Adminstration says since you have been out the school taxes have not been paid and we haveto let all you teachers go or you will have to give up your vacations and work for free this summer and if not well. Here is the Want Ads for teacher opening nation-wide have fun.

    Biden doesn't have to worry about rising gas and oil prices, and neither does John Kerry. Biden has plenty of money from his China ties and Kerry from his fortunate marriages to be able to pay those higher prices for gasoline and jet fuel.
