John 14:1


Pearl Harbor Day

Today is Pearl Harbor Day, the 81st anniversary of the “date which will live in infamy.” On the morning of December 7, 1941, Japan launched a sneak attack on the US Naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, that brought the US into World War II.  2,403 Americans were killed and 1,178 others were wounded, making it the deadliest attack on America until September 11, 2001.

It is very important that we commemorate these days. I know that the horror and tragedy are not easy to think about, but only by remembering these tragic days will we prevent letting ourselves be lulled into complacency about evil in the world and forgetting to prepare for unexpected attacks. That seems especially urgent now, with air marshals recently warning that we are leaving ourselves more and more vulnerable to attack. We have an entire generation for whom 9/11 happened before they were even born, and the media’s attempts to suppress the ugly truth of it combined with the anti-American lessons kids are hearing in school and on social media have convinced many young people that America somehow “had it coming.”

Americans are now very divided, and remembering these attacks also reminds us of how we put petty differences aside and came together as Americans, because what America stands for is bigger than any one group’s personal political agenda. That’s inconvenient for those who profit by dividing us, but it’s good for the nation. As one Vietnam veteran told Fox News, “If we don't unite today, we will certainly fall."

As a tribute to all World War II veterans, here’s a moving story from Fox News about a 102-year-old veteran and Pearl Harbor survivor and his trip back to Hawaii for the 81st anniversary.

All of us at the Huckabee Newsletter send our greatest respect and gratitude to all our veterans. I will end by saying what our grandparents said throughout World War II:

“Remember Pearl Harbor!”


A terrible day for Republicans, Trump and America

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there’s no other way to put it: Tuesday was a terrible day for Republicans, for former President Trump, and for America in general in the long run.

The biggest story was in Georgia, where once again, Democrat Raphael Warnock won a narrow victory in a Senate run-off election. Only this time, it wasn’t just to give the Democrats a Senate tie but to give them control by 51-49. Any Republicans who didn’t vote (and there were more than enough to change the outcome) should be ashamed. This gives Chuck Schumer full control of Senate Committees, takes away the braking power of Sen. Joe Manchin (the only moderate left in the Democrat Party), and makes it easier for the Senate to change long standing rules and confirm Biden’s radical nominees.

Today’s Democrat leaders having no ethics other than the situational kind, we can expect to hear that the Republicans’ slim 9-vote House majority means they need to share power, compromise and not push their agenda, while the Democrats’ 1-vote Senate majority is a mandate to shove their most radical agenda items and nominees down America’s throat.

I don’t want to say that Herschel Walker was a loser in that race because he deserves respect for being a political novice who ran a good race against overwhelming opposition, lowball attacks and piles of out-of-state money and still lost by less than 2%. But it’s another coat of tarnish for former President Trump. Walker was one of his hand-picked candidates, most of whom won their primaries but cost Republicans seats in the general election. Trump is facing growing concerns that while his popularity is strong with the GOP base, he’s just too radioactive to attract swing voters who are needed to win general elections. In that regard, Ron DeSantis may be as big a winner in that race as Warnock.

Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media offers a different take, arguing that the GOP has much deeper problems that can’t be blamed on Trump.

https://pjmedia.com/columns/stephen-kruiser/2022/12/07/the-morning-briefing-stop-blaming-trump-for-failed-gop-2022-candidates-n1651458

Trump also suffered a big defeat in a New York courtroom, where a jury found the Trump Corporation and the Trump Payroll Corp, two entities under the Trump Organization umbrella, guilty on 17 counts of tax evasion and liable for a $1.6 million fine. It’s actually not as bad as it sounds: the case was based on testimony from former CFO Allen Weisselberg, who pleaded guilty to charges that he manipulated the company’s books and his own compensation package to illegally reduce his taxes, through things like not declaring the value of some of his benefits as income. You know, the type of thing that countless Wall Street executives do and never get prosecuted for it. 

For Trump, it mostly amounts to a PR defeat. Weisselberg took full responsibility and did not implicate Trump or any of his family members (despite what I’m sure was extreme pressure to do so.) Even the New York Times admitted that the companies “largely perform back-office functions, employing and paying top executives, so they do not hold any loans, liquor licenses‌ or other privileges that might slip away in the wake of the conviction.‌” And $1.6 million sounds like a lot, but to Trump, it’s precisely the amount of his total Presidential salary that this alleged “greedy, selfish crook” donated back to the Treasury. (FYI: Biden keeps his entire salary, but of course, he deserves it. Just look at the results!) 

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2022/12/06/breaking-trump-org-n2616820

That link has more details, including Trump’s response. He said he will appeal the verdict, calling it part of the continuing witch hunt against him, and noted that the charges involved no monetary benefit to his companies and were entirely the actions of his ex-employee and his accountants. He also said that despite record high violent crime in New York City, the prosecutors spent all their time and effort on an unprecedented prosecution of his company over "fringe benefits" when no murder cases have come to trial in six years.

I can’t argue with that. But while I don’t want to appear to be trying to excuse cheating on your taxes, I do have to point out that the tax code is so incomprehensible even to the IRS that vindictive prosecutors could probably go after anyone over disagreements on how to interpret something like “contract worker or employee.” The real verdict that Americans should reach from this case is that we need to scrap the tax code and replace it with the Fair Tax, which would eliminate both tax cheating and partisan prosecutions over tax disputes.

Trump will also have to worry about the House January 6th Kangaroo Kommittee’s announcement that it intends to include criminal referrals as part of its report. They didn’t say whom they want to prosecute, but since it’s obvious that they’re as obsessed with “getting Trump'' as Captain Ahab was with Moby Dick, you can bet that they’ll recommend the DOJ prosecute Trump despite them failing to produce  evidence that he committed any crimes.

https://redstate.com/bonchie/2022/12/06/january-6th-committee-announces-criminal-referrals-and-donald-trump-is-in-trouble-n669722

And as Bonchie at Redstate.com points out, this is bad news for Trump because between the Biden DOJ and DC juries, the lack of evidence of any crime will in no way prevent Trump from being prosecuted or convicted. As we saw with the raid on Trump’s home to seize his own Presidential documents, we’re already deep into banana republic territory.

Finally, in the last piece of bad news for Republicans, Trump and America, the Supreme Court rejected without comment a lawsuit alleging that Dominion Voting Machines and Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg had an undue influence over the 2020 election. The plaintiffs argued that the Founders intended elections to be run by the people’s representatives in the states, not by private individuals whose money is used to influence the outcome.   

https://www.westernjournal.com/supreme-court-makes-decision-dominion-voting-systems-case/

The lower court threw out the suit not on its merits but on the controversial dodge that the plaintiffs didn’t have “standing” to sue because they couldn’t show that they suffered specific damages worse than every other voter suffered. Seems pretty weasely to shirk the court’s responsibility to ensure we have honest elections just because every American was harmed and not just the ones who brought the case, but that was the court’s excuse.  


There was a bright spot to yesterday…

Sorry about all the depressing news, but here’s a bright spot: Following a scathing report by a Loudoun County, Virginia, grand jury, the school board finally fired School Superintendent Scott Ziegler.

https://www.foxnews.com/us/loudoun-county-superintendent-scott-ziegler-fired-after-grand-jury-report-handling-sexual-assaults

This was the school district where administrators were so “woke” and sensitive to “transgender” issues that they let a biological male in a skirt use the girls’ restroom, where he raped a female student. They then transferred him to another school, where he sexually assaulted another girl. They covered that up and tried to paint the second girl’s father as the threat when he showed up to angrily confront them at a school board meeting. All things considered, this superintendent should have been fired two years ago. But it shouldn't be considered the end of this story, only a good start. 


A classic DC politician-style gaffe

 President Biden makes a lot of “gaffes” in his own unique style, but Tuesday, he made a classic DC politician-style gaffe, which is defined as “accidentally telling the truth.” This should give you an idea as to how much he really cares about the gargantuan humanitarian and national security nightmare that this disastrous policies have created on our Southern border.

Well done, Senator Cotton

A high-five to Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton for finally standing up to a corporation that promotes leftist policies but comes running to Republicans to defend it from the anti-business policies of the very Democrats that it helps to elect. In this case, it was Kroger, the “diversity and inclusion”-pushing supermarket giant that’s been sued by employees over such “woke” overreach as forcing workers to wear aprons endorsing LGBTQ+ rights.

https://redstate.com/bonchie/2022/12/06/tom-cottons-response-to-woke-ceo-looking-for-republican-help-is-absolute-fire-n669886

Kroger is pursuing a buyout and merger with Albertson’s, but some “progressive” politicians are opposing it. So Kroger’s CEO came to Congress to try to get Republicans to defend the merger. After grilling him on Kroger’s “woke” policies, Sen. Cotton dropped the hammer:

“I’m sorry that’s happening to you. Best of luck.”

At the link above, Bonchie at Redstate.com cheers Cotton for doing what’s he’s been urging Republicans to do for years: tell “woke” CEO’s who “promote Democrat insanity with one hand while getting benefits from Republicans with the other” to go “pound sand.” They need to learn that they’ll have to “live with the consequences of their political pursuits,” and in every case thus far, those consequences have been “Get woke, go broke.”


The “Everything Is Racist” file

I haven’t checked the “Everything Is Racist” file in a few days, and racist things are really piling up. So just to alert you to a few of them: math is racist and based on “whiteness.” I’m so old, I remember when it was based on 10.

https://www.nationalreview.com/2017/10/math-racist-university-illinois-professor/

The word “Monkeypox” is racist, so the World Health Organization is renaming it “M pox” on the theory that we’re all too stupid to remember what the “M” stands for.

https://redstate.com/alexparker/2022/12/05/racism-is-defeated-who-renames-monkeypox-biden-administration-applauds-n669362

Also, according to the Washington Post, “Shark Week” on the Discovery Channel is now racist. I assume because of all the Great White Sharks and the fact that they have yet to be renamed “Evil White Sharks.”

    Mike I also have think the MSM and all the Government Agencie's assaults on Donal is having success on keeping Trump from the White House. Most of the Base is still hoping for a return however ordinary people do not have time to really understand or to know what is best for them and the country. Most of the population know the country is doing badly however they can not comprehend why, so they continue to operate under hypnotic voices of the MSM and their social media outlets to continue the blight these Dems are doing to the population and the country. Hypnotic climate change messages and the end of democracy conspiracies the war on fossil fuels the EV, solar and wind concepts, that destroy land use and where the production of these panels and turbines are made, China of course, All with out reduction of costs to produce energy and the high cost of maintenance are never disclosed or how to dispose of panels and wind propellers none of the cost are told to the population while under its hypnotic condition, thus we have a country in decline. Fetterman Warnok the answer? The reelected Senators and Reps. not a chance for survival just the same old rats running on the wheel to disaster.

    Biden's Art of the Deal looks like this A low level moral government country has a timex watch and a powerful Nation has a Rolex watch and the low level person says to a dumb person I will trade you this timex watch worth about $25 for your $ 1000000 watch and the dumb person says Yes I will that is the wisdom of biden's Art of a Deal and the dummy made that trade. Now for a moment in the case of Grinner she volumteered to go to Russia knowing the facts she could be a victim of a communist regeime however low IQ does not permit one to do enter into a communist regeime. Putting a Terrorist back on the International scene I believe is an act of treason for the entire world and should be treated as such. Then thats Biden's Art of the Deal did one think anything differently???????????

    It is discouraging to see the insanity. Now voter fraud and TDD are accepted norms. For me I only trust in the living God. He caused Israel's trouble when she worshipped pagan gods. The evangelical elite have shown that most pulits are whitewashed sepulchres. Putting failures to lead the RNC is another one of the insane things occurring and the sheeple- following them will praise them when the house of cards collapses. I know a pagan who has more common sense on his little finger than all put together! I saw the signs when they stole the last few elections. Now it's Carter2.0 and Obama 3.0

    As Congressional "leaders" congratulate the Keystone cops of DC. However the Cowards of DC fight against parents that protect their children in our schools from its hate America campaign . the idea of state and federal run drug stations to safely poison the population with drugs that keep them curled in a fetal position what the hell could possibly be wrong with those ideas one those are the same people that vote for a sinister criminal like biden fetterman and the latest reelction of a warnock. Don't worry America they will continue to teach hate and aid in keeping its voting block oblivious to what is happening this shall be called the biden experience.

    "Tuesday was a terrible day for Republicans, for former President Trump, and for America in general in the long run."

    As much as you keep blaming the jackasses, the thing you don't realize is the majority of the "merica sheeple" keep reelecting the same idiots that are GIVING them all the free stuff and creating this "new merica"!!! AND they are too stupid to see how the jackasses are ruining the old America AND you rinos are allowing it to happen!!! And the only reason I can figure that you rinos allow this to go on is you share in the "power over the sheeple" and the corrupt cash that flows freely into your pockets!!! And you sure don't want to cut off your sugar daddy!!!

    Doesn’t GA have a recently elected Republican governor? Was there any comparison of votes in that election with votes in the runoff? Also, the statewide governor race was much better for republicans than the original statewide senate race.

    174 wins and 9 losses, A GREAT EVENING, and the Fake News Media, together with their partner in crime, the Democrats, are doing everything possible to play it down. Amazing job by some really fantastic candidates!” Trump wrote.
    Read that and weep Mike. Desanctimonious will have to wait till 2028.
