By Mike Huckabee




"Imagine that --- being framed by our own government and by political operatives who don’t like you. And I think that’s what we’re gonna find out.” That was Devin Nunes, speaking with Maria Bartiromo on this week’s SUNDAY MORNING FUTURES, on the case of former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

It’s highly doubtful that Nunes, ranking member and former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, would be saying something like this unless he already possessed knowledge that it was true. Recall that he was pilloried for his memo debunking the Russia hoax in 2018, though his conclusions were later verified. (It was Adam Schiff’s memo that was discredited.) Just watch --- Nunes will be right about this, too.

If you’ve read Lee Smith’s excellent book, THE PLOT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT, you know that Flynn was indeed targeted by operatives who didn’t like him, as far back as 2014-15. The Obama Department of Justice (“Justice”) didn’t like him because he wanted to lessen the military’s reliance on the CIA bureaucracy, which only slowed them down when minutes counted on the battlefield. He was calling for financial audits of the Pentagon/Defense Department (uh-oh), and he was a vocal opponent of one of President Obama’s most cherished, administration-defining plans: the Iran Deal. They wanted him compromised long before President-elect Trump announced that he would be coming to the White House to work at his side.



The Democrats have proposed the Green New Deal and the basic tenets of it have now been embraced by their presumptive nominee, Joe Biden. Those pushing the radical notion of ending fossil fuel use within 10 years because they believe the earth is only going to last for 11 years have said we have to do this NOW. So before you vote for Joe Biden to be President and for Democrats in the House or Senate or in the Governor’s office, you might wonder what the Green New Deal would mean to you. Now, it’s easier than ever to explain. Because if you have enjoyed “stay at home” orders and inability to travel during the coronavirus scare, you’re really going to love the Green New Deal!

Airplanes, cars, trucks and cruise ships won’t be around under the Green New Deal because they run on fossil fuels, which by the way we have plenty of—as in we could go for hundreds of years on them and not run out. The pandemic has caused people to stay home for fear of a virus. In the Green New Deal, you’ll stay home because unless you can walk or ride a bike, you won’t have a way to get to grandma’s house, the store, church, or a vacation. Since meat will be mostly eliminated because cows and other livestock produce methane gas when they….well, when they pass gas, grocery shelves will be stocked with tofu and plant substitutes instead of ribeyes and pork chops. And if you eat that stuff, there probably will be another toilet paper shortage. But unless you live on a farm, since since trucks won’t be allowed to burn fuel and bring produce to your supermarket, I’m not sure how your groceries will get to you anyway so learn to plant a garden unless you live in Michigan where the Governor there doesn’t think you ought to be able to buy vegetable seeds or go fishing.

Next, look around your house for plastic things you have and use. Hang on to them if you like them. They disappear with the Green New Deal.



I would normally start off with a link to President Trump’s daily briefing on the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus, but for the first time in weeks, he didn’t hold one over the weekend. He implied that he might end them because of the hostile/idiotic media response, tweeting:

“What is the purpose of having White House News Conferences when the Lamestream Media asks nothing but hostile questions, & then refuses to report the truth or facts accurately. They get record ratings, & the American people get nothing but Fake News. Not worth the time & effort!”

I can’t say I blame him, since I had the same reaction to last week’s off-the-rails hysteria accusing Trump of suggesting that people inject themselves with Lysol (incidentally, where would they get all this Lysol? I can’t even find it in stores.) That and “Labradoodle-gate” were so jaw-droppingly stupid, childish and willfully obtuse that I didn’t even want to waste my time commenting on them, and that's my job. At least take the effort to make up fake news that sounds half-way plausible.

Trump has spent day after day, sometimes for over an hour at a stretch, dispensing information, trying to keep up people’s hopes and dispel their fears, and answering questions from the media. And in return, every syllable out of his mouth has been parsed, twisted, disputed, refuted, mocked and scorned. Reporters have wasted their precious opportunity to ask the President about a matter of monumental importance to every American, instead lobbing gotcha questions and childish accusations. Even after putting up with it every day for weeks, when he finally got fed up and took a weekend off from their incessant barking, CNN ran this accusatory headline: “Trump goes into hiding.”

So what did CNN call it when Obama went for months without a press conference, averaging fewer than two a month through his entire term? I can’t imagine they accused him of “going into hiding.”

I prefer to think of it as Trump setting a good hygiene example for all Americans by washing his hands of this nasty media virus.


There are all sorts of rumors flying about North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un: that he’s in a vegetative state after surgery, that he’s died and it’s being hushed up, that his sister is being installed in his place, etc. But as of this writing, none of this has been confirmed. In fact, a high level South Korean official says their intelligence has detected no unusual developments in notoriously secretive North Korea.

Therefore, I will stick to one of the guiding principles of my newsletter, something that sets us apart from so many media outlets these days: I will refrain from commenting on this “news” until it actually happens.

We’re sad to report that Harold Reid of the great country vocal quartet The Statler Brothers died Friday at home in Staunton, Virginia, at 80, after a long battle with kidney failure. Harold (bass) and his brother Don Reid (lead vocals) were the only actual brothers in the group. They took the Statler Brothers name from a box of tissues, and joked that they might just as easily have been called the Kleenex Brothers.

The group had started out singing in churches as a gospel quartet called the Kingsmen, but changed their name after the rock group The Kingsmen had a hit with “Louie, Louie.” Their country career was launched when they became Johnny Cash’s backup singers, and they went on to become one of the most successful country vocal groups in history, mixing unique harmonies, nostalgia and comedy into country songs with a gospel flavor. They released over 40 albums, had a long string of hit singles including four Billboard #1 hits, won three Grammy Awards, were named the CMA Vocal Group of the Year nine times, are in both the Country and Gospel Music Halls of Fame, and hosted a variety show that was the #1 show on TNN for its entire seven-year run. They were even dubbed “America’s poets” by author Kurt Vonnegut.

The Statler Brothers retired in 2002, but their records will live on forever. Our prayers and condolences to Harold Reid’s family, and our thanks for his legacy of decades of great music.

Here are some comments on Harold Reid’s passing from other country music stars…

Bible Verse of the Day (KJV)

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Joshua 1:9 (KJV)

    Victor Hansen suggested the Coronavirus Press Briefings should include journalists from other parts of the country through the use of zoom and skype. This way, we won't be subjected to the constant "gotcha" questions from the New York and Washington DC press corps. President Trump should keep the briefings "brief". President Trump should serve as a "Moderator" giving a summary of activities with different speakers e.g. Departments of Treasury, Defense, A.G. and others. I would suggest using the same remote technology featuring outside experts in the fields of medicine, economy, and psychology. Adding a "Q&A" from viewers in various parts of the country would create a better balance. Some of these press briefings have added to the panic of this virus through comments made by Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx. The public needs hope and some dates when our country can get back to normal....and we will shake hands, fill tables at restaurants, socialize, and even give hugs to one another again. The public needs NORMAL NOW.

    Has anyone here thought of just having Dennis Rodman call Kim Jong-Un and ask " how's it going man? ".

    Regarding Sergei Millian going into hiding, and Mr. Nunez saying we can "guarantee his safety" if he returns to the US:

    I would take that guarantee with a very *large* grain of salt... Jeffrey Epstein was in a prison cell, on 24-hour suicide watch / monitoring, and *still* ended up dead.

    Please encourage President Trump
    1. To restart the economy by reducing regulations on businesses and individuals.
    2. I would not recommend any more stimulus money.
    3. Find a way to break the hold multi-million dollar "groups" have on each other and congress.
    Thank you,

    The demand for papers just to play golf. How quickly American freedom went away in a so called Red State.

    Mike, I love your show and know that you are the person to get this information out to all American business owners that are desperate for some legal recourse against this tyrannical lockdown:

    The Hobbs Act, codified at 18 U.S.C. § 1951, is a U.S. federal law enacted in 1946 that provides: (a) Whoever in any way or degree obstructs, delays, or affects commerce or the movement of any article or commodity in commerce, by robbery or extortion or attempts or conspires to do so, commits, or threatens physical violence to any person or property in furtherance of a plan or purpose to do anything in violation of this section shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

    Extortion is a crime in which one person attempts to force another person to do something against his will.

    This applies to all government employees.

    Please share this with your audience. Together we can break the stranglehold that is choking the life out of the American economy.

    I agree that it is best to cancel the press briefings as the fake news press only wanted to trash Trump! As someone said that if President Trump walked on water the press would say, "look at that he can't swim!"

    I was wondering when he was gonna have enough. I had enough of the media long ago. A bunch of idiots. They think they are so smart. They are enslaved by all the Trump haters. And they are enslaved to anger. So why don't they separate themselves and think for themselves. Actually do research to find truth. Real truth. Media must like communism. They like being controlled.

    Pork from China? South Dakota’s Smithfield pork processing plant with the coronoavirus outbreak is owned by China. The source of the outbreak is unclear, but could it be via items shipped and received from China? After all, South Dakota and its citizens had managed the pandemic threat quite effectively. Aside from the virus, processing & marketing of food in China needs looking into. See Pork from China could be marketed here under Smithfield brand labeled "raised in USA." Thanks for your consideration.

    With regard to the White House News Briefings, my husband and I thoroughly appreciate watching them to get the latest update on the Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic. Listening to the President and members of the Task Force means hearing from the source, the team that has comforted and guided the nation through this scary time. It would be a shame to halt this opportunity for American citizens to hear these updates directly. Without them, citizens learn snippets that have been twisted into sensational fake news propaganda aimed at defaming and harming those who are working long hard hours to protect us all. I sincerely hope the news briefings continue but when the team has delivered their message for the day, the briefing should end. Off-the-rails hysterical questions and accusations from willfully obtuse reporters out to malign the President and Task Force need to stop. Dumb questions don’t help anyone!

    Governor Huckabee, thank you for the Bible verses in your newsletters. I enjoy them. I started a digital subscription to the Tulsa World recently. I spent most of my life in Tulsa but live in a small rural area now. The newspaper used to have a daily Bible Verse but now just a quote from someone. They do have a daily Will Rogers quote but Will is not Jesus, Moses, or Paul.

    I watch the President's new conferences every soon as the question and answer periods start I turn the station. If I have DVR'd the news conference, as I do many times to view later, I fast forward through the stupid, reduntant questions. I will NOT listen to thoses stupid repetitive questions. Most are just stupid. I can't believe these people have any brains anymore. I'm done with it.

    Governor--I don't understand why President Trump and the CONIV-19 Team can't just give an update each day and not call it a press conference. Don't even invite the press---just give a CONIV-19 Team update and be done with it. This would still keep the public informed and to hell with the stupid press. I know he would still spend a part of that update correcting what the stupid press said he said the day before---but maybe use video to do that instead of the President doing it. I know it gets old. I don't want them to stop updating us. Thanx, Darla Faulks
