Politicizing COVID-19 vaccinations

By Mike Huckabee

The politicizing of COVID-19 vaccinations is ramping up, with Josh Marshall at the liberal Talking Points Memo asking, “Is Vaxed America Running Out of Patience?” I don’t want to give clicks to the original, so here’s Jazz Shaw at giving it a good dismantling.

As Shaw points out, the left has a problem: they want to score political points by demonizing people who are reluctant to be vaccinated as a bunch of dumb, white Trump supporters who listen to crazy “disinformation” on the Internet and are to blame for all COVID deaths. Problem is, the most hesitant groups are blacks and Latinos, and they can’t call them dumb and crazy because they’d risk losing their votes. So they’re coming up with nonsensical distinctions, like that minorities are understandably “vaccine hesitant” while white Trump voters are stupidly “vaccine resistant,” as if those are actually different things.

(I should note here before it goes down the memory hole: the vaccines were developed under Trump, thanks to Trump’s Operation Warp Speed; Trump took one himself [as have I]; and Biden, Harris and other Democrats ginned up fears of them because they were developed under Trump -- until they took office and started falsely taking credit for them and demonizing people who are afraid of them.)

Shaw also points out the economic and political side effects that would be caused by mandating vaccinations to hold a job, which would mean firing 40% of the workforce, many of them black and Latino.

Here’s another story, from the liberal Atlantic magazine, admitting that radical anti-vaxxers are a tiny, almost irrelevant segment of the unvaccinated, and that demonizing the unvaccinated is just generating more distrust and making matters worse.

Many people are also hesitant to be vaccinated because they had COVID already, got over it and believe they have natural immunity that’s as good as the vaccine or better. The CDC insists they should get vaccinated anyway, but studies are piling up showing that these people do have longterm resistance. A recent study in Israel found that out of about 7,000 new cases, there were far fewer among the recovered than the vaccinated. And here’s the latest, from Italy.

These people tend to be concerned about possible side effects, and it’s understandable that in weighing the risk of, say, a blood clot against the small chance of re-catching a disease they’ve already easily survived, that they might go with the latter. That’s just the basic kind of risk assessment everyone makes all the time, like deciding whether avoiding the risk of dying in a traffic accident is worth never leaving the house.

Here’s some more information, from reliable sources, that casts doubt on the push to vaccinate all children for COVID-19.

The CDC claims that 335 children who tested positive for COVID have died, but Johns Hopkins University medical Prof. Marty Makary says there was no research to determine whether they actually died of COVID or simply were carrying it when they died of something else. His own research team studied 48,000 cases of COVID in children under 18 and found zero deaths among those who didn’t have other conditions, such as leukemia. Meanwhile, the CDC found 56 to 69 cases of myocarditis (heart inflammation) in 12- to 17-year-old boys per 1 million vaccine doses over a 120-day period. That’s rare, but it’s still a concern for parents, who have to balance the rare risk of serious heart problems against the very low risk of the disease to children. Again: PARENTS have to do that.

Bottom line: if the CDC wants to convince people to get vaccinated, it needs to work on regaining its credibility. Consider all the medical research, not just studies that confirm what they're telling us today. Address the concerns of Americans honestly instead of calling them names. And respect their right to make decisions about their own bodies. It’s odd how the leftist mantra, “My body, my choice,” gives you the right to kill a child in the womb that isn’t actually part of your own body, but it doesn’t cover making decisions about things that are actually injected into your body.

In the meantime, my daughter Sarah has a suggestion that might help overcome vaccine hesitancy among Trump supporters.

Biden Priorities

By Mike Huckabee

Demonstrating the priorities of our “intelligence” and “justice” agencies, just as actual violent, anarchist rioters are being released without charges, Biden’s DOJ has dropped the investigation into Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s part in putting COVID patients in nursing homes with deadly results.

The DOJ has also dropped charges against five Chinese scientists who hid their involvement with the Chinese military to obtain work visas at American universities.

Meanwhile, they are focusing hard on investigating and prosecuting the daylights out of the real threat to America: everyone who entered the Capitol on January 6th, even if they just stepped through the open door to take a selfie or use the bathroom.

Related: Cuomo dismissed the now-dropped DOJ investigation of his nursing home policies as “toxic politics” (funny, I reserve the word “toxic” for things that actually kill people, like forcing nursing homes to take in COVID patients.) He’s now showing his COVID-fighting bona fides by declaring that government reps should knock on doors, put unvaccinated people in cars and drive them to get vaccines. If they were forced into a car with a driver who had COVID, that would sound like an Andrew Cuomo plan.

Coming To A Town Near You

By Mike Huckabee

This story was so absurd that I held off from commenting on it until I was fairly certain it wasn't a hoax or a prank. But apparently, the leftist BLM group Dallas Justice Now really did circulate a letter to parents in the wealthy neighborhoods of Highland Park and University Park, telling them that if they wanted to prove they’re allies of BLM and not racists, they should pledge not to send their kids to Ivy League schools to leave more spots open for minority students.

My writers live in Dallas, and they assure me that’s about as likely to happen as them being able to afford a house in Highland Park. This came about because, even though those neighborhoods are heavily old-money Republican, their kids have been indoctrinated and were virtue-signaling their BLM support. That gave the DJN group an opening to accuse them of being racist hypocrites if they don’t really make sacrifices to atone for the wealth they’ve accumulated by oppressing minorities (they seem to think that’s how wealth is accumulated; not by providing goods and services that people want to pay for – sounds like they’ve been indoctrinated with dumb ideas, too.)

While everyone is having a good laugh over this, I think the parents should take it seriously. Look at how your kids are already acting. Can you imagine what insufferable, useless little socialists they’ll become if you send them to an Ivy League university? This group may have done you the biggest favor imaginable by scaring you into sending them to Liberty University or military school before it’s too late.

The Left Targets Brett Kavanaugh Again

By Mike Huckabee

Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse must be really desperate to change the subject from Democrat failures and his longtime membership in a tony, all-white beach club because he’s demanding a revival of the investigation into ridiculous, partisan accusations against Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who has been on the Supreme Court for coming up on four years now.

I don’t why he didn’t pick something more timely, like a new investigation of the crash of the Hindenburg. For those who think that’s insensitive because we must “believe all women,” please note that that’s also an outdated relic of the Kavanaugh brouhaha. That had a stake driven through it by the liberal media’s burial of a rape accusation against Joe Biden that actually came with some corroborating evidence.

Whitehouse and fellow Democrat Sen. Chris Coons are questioning whether the FBI fully investigated the most credible of 4500 tips that came into their tip phone line. First of all, if you open up any forum about any political figure, you’ll get a bare minimum of 4500 replies of questionable value (see “Twitter.”) Secondly, their claim that they didn’t get this information is belied by the fact that the FBI printed out a summary of all 4500 “tips” and made it available to every Senator to read at the time.

Did Sen. Whitehouse not know that? Or was he too busy at the regatta to read it?

Biles Is Out

By Mike Huckabee

Sad to report that Team USA gymnast Simone Biles appeared to have injured herself during a vault attempt and has pulled out of the rest of the women’s team finals events. It’s unclear whether she’ll compete in the rest of the games.

Although she came in as a heavy favorite, Biles admitted it was hard to cope with the pressure and she sometimes feels as if she has the weight of the world on her shoulders. I’m sorry to hear that, but I hope she knows that the millions of Americans who are rooting for her also want her to be happy and healthy, and we appreciate that she takes representing the USA so seriously.

Last weekend, my guests on “Huckabee” on TBN included Shannon Miller, who for 25 years has held the record for most Olympic medals ever won by a gymnast. She is such a gracious person, she expected Shannon to break her record this week and was looking forward to seeing it. But it now looks as if Shannon’s record may stand for another 25 years.

If you’d like to see that terrific interview with Shannon Miller, it’s right here on YouTube:

RIP Senator Mike Enzi

By Mike Huckabee

Our prayers and condolences today to the family of former four-term Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi, who has died at 77 after sustaining serious injuries in a bicycle accident.

Enzi was a former mayor, state legislator and shoe store owner who ended his Senate career with a speech calling on politicians to turn down the vitriol and stay true to their beliefs without treating others badly. To quote Don McLean, “They did not listen, they’re not listening still.”

    Saw the end of an discussion this morning (7/29/21) on Fox News about 5 retired Navy Seals running for House seats. Can you give me any details on this story.

    I enjoy reading your newsletters. I still am feeling that our dear Republic is in very deep trouble. I have yet to hear our dear Republicans and conservatives speaking up against the administrations policies. I have seen Turning Point USA but we need more shows like that so people will continue to be informed. Many I am afraid, do not want to be bothered and you cannot blame them. I hope and pray that the movement will be like a tidal wave and break up all of this nonsense our Republic is going through.

    Mike, I wish you would let go of this whole "vaccination" narrative. People who refuse to get the jab (myself among them) have the good sense to know it is NOT a "vaccine" and could not be patented as such. It is experimental gene manipulation therapy with MANY known and probably a lot more unknown deleterious side effects--including death. The mortality numbers from these injections have been stifled, misreported or unreported. But the fact is, orders of magnitude more deaths have resulted from this jab than the swine flu vaccination of 1976 and it was pulled immediately. So why is this unknown brew of chemicals still circulating? Even you and your daughter Sarah sound like you are virtue signaling by letting us all know you've gone and got the jab. Thanks for letting me know but really it is none of my or anyone else's business and it is certainly not going to motivate me to go get that jab. This should be an absolute personal choice without any pressure, social signaling, cancelling, or threats involved. It has become a societal coercion tool for the Left to achieve its aims of societal dominance and single-party control. Those who yield to it are tacitly approving of this madness and helping further the agenda of the evil Left.

    I have been a bit disturbed by your pro-vaccine stance. It may be that you may not have seen enough information. The group American Frontline Doctors has filed a lawsuit to halt the forced vaccinations. Here is a disturbing article that outlines their suit with references to some information.

    Blessings on the day, Thom

    Hello. I can no longer read your newsletter or watch tv show until you address the poison covid shot truthfully and admit that thousands are dying or ill from the shot. Look up Doug Billings and Stew Peters. They have doctors giving stats and facts which you ignore. I am a 64 yr old single white woman and I will never put poison in my blood for a flu/cold. I am not crazy or extreme. I am educated. I am fearful that all of you who got the poison shot are going to die. President Trump never said he got the covid shot. Never. Please take off your blinders and look at the facts. Take a look at what your blood now looks like. There is no such thing as covid. Sorry. Until you are more truthful I have to delete your emails. I feel ad though you are now part of the deep state and believe in depopulation. You going along with this makes me sad. I know you will continue to ignore this.

    Re: Politicizing COVID-19 vaccinations
    If it so safe, why does CDC cover up that over 7,000 have died from the vaccine (Covid Jab - since it is not a true vaccine by definition) according to Vars and their own records show over 45,000 have died from its use in the last 120 days. Other sources indicate in areas of this country (like California) and other countries where people are highly vaccinated, the people are getting COVID 6 times the number of unvaccinated. No one is addressing this, they are only demanding and that tells me there is simething not right. Plus, my wife and myself have conditions that taking the Covid Jab is more dangerous to us than COVID. And, why are other drugs that work are being withheld. In India, it was these other drugs that stopped the deaths, not the vaccines. There are too many false truths being told by politicians and the media. No one explains why standard medical practices are not being perform and Doctor who offer a different opinion have been put down since day one. I no longer trust Trump for the support of the COVID Jab.

    Masking in the USA.
    Watching some news, obviously not "main stream"

    I WAS APPALLED WATCHING ILLEGALS Pouring through border check points
    The vast majority were UNMASKED.
    How can we be making Masking demands and here where we have "some" control, we allow
    These people to waltz right in?
