Political Boycotts Of Companies

By Mike Huckabee

I’ve never been a fan of political boycotts of companies. I figure they mostly just harm innocent employees, and I think it’s un-American to refuse to do business with someone just because they hold different views from me. So even though I knew, say, Starbucks, was a liberal company, I liked their coffee, so I still bought it in airports.

But what we are currently seeing from corporate America isn’t just a liberal tilt among the management ranks. It’s an all-out war on conservative vendors and customers, in blatant disregard for civil rights or good business practices. They are doing what I always urged people to avoid: trying to harm people just for having a different viewpoint. That’s vicious intolerance and open bigotry, not to mention restraint of trade.

We’ve seen it happen to Parler and other companies and individuals, who are losing their jobs, businesses and access to necessary services, just because they speak their minds and don’t toe the leftist line. So it’s time for conservatives to stand up against that and force a stop to it by using the most potent weapon we have: the power of the purse.

One of the most outrageous examples of this I’ve seen so far is the targeting of Mike Lindell, founder of MyPillow, for his support of President Trump and for him daring to voice distrust in the recent election. This week, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Kohl’s, Wayfair and HEB all severed ties with MyPillow and will no longer carry its products.

MyPillow is a proudly US-based company that employs over 1600 Americans. These retailers who are banning their products don’t seem to care how they might harm those American workers. They are free to correct me if I’m wrong, but I haven’t heard of any of them banning products from China, a nation that oppresses its citizens; shuts down churches; denies free speech; uses social media to enforce strict behavior and speech limits; imprisons political dissidents and condones slave labor (aside from the slave labor, I suddenly see why US leftists seem to admire China so much.) Nor have I heard of them banning products from companies run by Democrats who’ve spent the past four years promoting proven false claims that the 2016 election was stolen by Russia.

So these stores will carry products from China, but not American-made products because they disapprove of the political beliefs of the company’s owner and want to punish him for exercising his right to free speech to express an opinion about the election that tens of millions of Americans agree with.

Mike Lindell has an amazing and inspiring life story. Having suffered the anguish of addiction and risen to great success through his faith in God, he has been quoted as saying, “My passion is to give back, it’s always been to help people. I had all kinds of adversity. I feel very blessed to get through — by the very grace of God — to where I’m at, and my heart is to help people.” And that he has done, in abundance.

MyPillow is famous for its charitable efforts, including giving thousands of pillows to charities, for homeless shelters, natural disaster relief, hospitals, the Salvation Army, the Wounded Warrior Project and others. When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, Lindell was among the first to voluntarily convert his factory to creating masks to alleviate the shortage. I thought Democrats were crazy about masks, but they certainly have zero gratitude for the man who provided those masks to them.

Have any of these morally-superior retailers done half as much to help their fellow humans as Mike Lindell has?

To cite just a few examples from the November election, in Texas, Trump got nearly 5.9 million votes. There are 20 Bed, Bath and Beyond stores in the state. With brick and mortar retailers struggling to stay afloat, can they really afford to infuriate 5.9 million potential customers? HEB is a Texas-based company. Do they think nearly 6 million of their fellow Texans are insurrectionists for supporting Trump and being suspicious of the election results?

Even in a state that Trump lost heavily, California, there are 19 Kohl's stores and over 6 million Trump voters. Is it good business to virtue-signal that you don’t want their dirty money? Because it is entirely within their power to withhold it and let these companies try to stay in business by selling fine linens and housewares to leftist Twitter trolls who live in vans, dorm rooms and their moms’ basements.

If you decide to do that, you might want to let them know through their websites and social media pages exactly why. If you are a stockholder in any of these companies, you should definitely let them know that you strongly disapprove of their executives prioritizing leftist groupthink and anti-America hostility to freedom of speech and thought over maximizing profits and carrying American-made products.

In the meantime, you can always order MyPillow’s many fine products (it’s not just pillows) direct from

And while it might be impossible to avoid all “woke” companies, this blogger has compiled a list of the 12 big corporations most openly hostile to conservatives, in case you don’t want to give them your money so they can use it to buy clubs to beat you with (at least one might surprise you.) It also offers some alternatives more deserving of your support.


A Little Good News

By Mike Huckabee

While President Biden might be itching to undo every Trump policy, he’s forgetting how much those policies helped blue collar union workers that the Democrats depend on for support. Turns out they might not be so willing to destroy their own jobs to make a few green activists on Twitter feel good about themselves.

Excellent Article

By Mike Huckabee

This is an excellent article by Dennis Prager on why the left has to suppress free speech.

Short answer: because their beliefs can’t withstand open debate and public scrutiny. As Prager puts it, “Leftism is essentially a giant balloon filled with nothing but hot air,” and conservative free speech is the pin that bursts it. For instance, I challenged readers recently to name any big city that the Democrats have run exclusively for any appreciable length of time that isn’t an over-taxed, crime-ridden basket case that people are fleeing. They can’t, so they refuse to allow conservative free speech anywhere they control, including campuses, Hollywood, certain “news” channels and now, social media.

Prager mentions that he invites leftists onto his radio show and is unfailingly polite to those who accept, but very few do. I can relate: I have a standing offer to prominent leftists to come on my show for a civil discussion of issues. The few who have admitted they were treated with more hospitality backstage than they’ve ever experienced on any TV show. Yet hardly any take me up on it.

Right now, the leftists are feeling invincible, and they’re already acting too big for their britches in trying to bully 75 million Americans to shut up. That’s not going to work on Americans. When the inevitable backlash comes, it’s going to be louder than Ted Nugent.


President Trump's Approval Rating

By Mike Huckabee

The Democrats and the media (pardon my redundancy) labored mightily to tar President Trump as he left office, throwing everything at him from a second bogus impeachment to charges of treason and insurrection. But as Abraham Lincoln is reported to have said, “You can’t fool all of the people all of the time.” Even amidst the attempted purge, a Rasmussen survey released Monday showed that Trump’s approval rating has actually risen slightly in the past few days. He left office at 51% approval.

Even in the Real Clear Politics aggregate of polls that always leans anti-Trump, he leaves office with 40% approval, 10 points higher than George W. Bush. And if think 40% is low, Ballotpedia's average of polls shows Congress' approval rating standing today at 13%.

That linked story also shows that while the Democrats may hold Congress, the GOP is in far better shape there than in 2009. Also, it notes that the alleged “white supremacist” Trump improved the Republican vote among virtually all minority groups, while only the Democrat vote got whiter.

The key to continuing that trend will be finding more Republican candidates who will keep fighting to make the lives of working Americans of all backgrounds better. That should be the party’s stance, stated loud and clear, and it’s what I’ve always promoted. Let’s hope the populist revolution for working people against the elites that Trump started can keep growing beyond Trump himself.

A Frank Assessment Of China's Communist Government

By Mike Huckabee

In a parting statement as Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo issued an usually frank assessment of China’s communist government, calling it a “Marxist-Leninist regime that exerts power over the long-suffering Chinese people through brainwashing and brute force.” He also listed its serial human rights abuses, including “genocide and crimes against humanity,” particularly against religious minorities.

Pompeo went into some detail in describing the on-going atrocities, persecution and genocides being conducted by China. Some analysts wondered why he would do this on the day before Biden took office, but as the article points out, that was probably why: to serve as a stark reminder to Biden, who called the Chinese leaders good people and whose son enriched himself from Chinese deals, that the nation that gave the world COVID-19 (as long as we’re speaking unspeakable truths) is not to be trusted. Also that, as President, he will be in charge of enforcing the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act of 2020, an anti-Chinese genocide bill signed by Trump that passed unanimously in the Senate and with overwhelming support in the House.

So Biden and his China-mollifying staffers will either have to deal forcefully with China’s outrageous human rights abuses or explain to the American people why they’re not.

New Podcast

On this episode of The People's Podcast, Governor Huckabee speaks with bestselling author John Cribb about this week's Inauguration and the lessons that soon to be President Biden could take from another president who inherited a divided country - Abraham Lincoln.

    Kohl's is the only store boycotting mypillow that I do any type of shopping. Guess I will be taking my business elsewhere.

    I suspect the government is targeting Mike Lindell not only about his support of President Trump but because they want to shut him down, possibly buy him out, and send manufacturing to China! Keep attempting to destroy American jobs, DIMS! Less jobs = less taxes!

    Mike, great assessment of the current atmosphere in Washington and the Liberalism of today. I would suggest that Politicians today have forgotten that they are supposed to be working for the people that elected them. This goes for both Parties! Very few of the current Representatives try to help the people that put them into office. Instead they are drawn into the corruption and Political infighting that has made Washington the cesspool that it is today! If we can’t limit the amount of time they can hold office, America is doomed!

    Noting Biden's signing of the 17 presidential orders yesterday and in light of the many more he has stated his intention of signing the die is cast that his administration will simply be an "anti-Trump" administration. The damage inflicted yesterday will be eclipsed by others coming today and beyond. It is strange to me that any person, claiming to be "for America" can so blatantly set a personal agenda of hate and destruction of all things good. I fear for Americas survival with at least four years of hatred and vitriol from the Left. God help us - we seem not to be able to do so ourselves.

    I am so sad and worried for our country because their policies (the Democrats) will slowly destroy our way of life. I cannot understand why there was no investigation in the big wave of voter fraud. What about the three big binders of people who witnessed voter fraud? Why was that completely ignored? I hope and pray each and every day for this country because I am afraid of what these Democrats will do.

    It is indeed a sad time for our country. As a great president leaves office after a clearly stolen election, people are trying to destroy him and his family. There were 20,000 troops to protect a virtual election and closed down city. Why did we not have some of these troops to protect the capital on January 6 when there were threats of violence? Maybe for the same reason so much has happened, to finally destroy Trump. I weep for the USA.

    Forgive me for harping on the same problem, but the links in your evening email continue to result in error pages. I don't know if it is the result of incompetence or deliberate misdeed, but it reflects badly on your usual reputation of having everything under control. I tried the link from the email to your website: broken. I tried to link to the list of "Woke" companies: broken. These links are usually fixed within a day, but they should work as soon as the newsletter is published. Forgive me for harping, but I have been subscribed for months and have a great deal of respect for your support of conservative thought. I don't like seeing it tarnished.

    I’m just curious. My daughter, who lives in upstate New York was unable to get any channels but NBC, CBS, and ABC for yesterday’s inauguration. All cable channels were unavailable. Her husband called Spectrum and was told all NYS had no cable stations. Have you heard about this? We’re just a little suspicious..

    I have been anti democrat since Trumps victory. The malice and hatred of the left knows no bounds. These are not american.. they are tabid animals who’s only goal on life is to destroy.. as the 3 cities attacked in the past 3 nights will tell. Democracy is control and greed.. America has let the devil win. It’ll be like soddom and gommarah countrywide if the military doesn’t take control . I hope trump has something up his sleeve

    I applaud your comments about Mike Lindell and MyPillow. He is a great example of the American dream. His terrific products have a value to price ratio of 500%! What a contrast to our radical left who don't create anything, but destroy--freedom, businesses, people.

    Please keep Mike Lindell's great products a secret from the left. They don't deserve a great night's sleep.

    We need to stand strong with Donald Trump. I am 82 years old and he has been the best President of my lifetime. I loved Ronald Reagan, but Donald Trump has overcome every obstacle they have thrown at him. We need to have his back. Stand firm! They can change our laws, but they can't change our hearts. Don 't give up!

    I am all for Donald Trump creating his own "Patriot Party". The Republicans are wimps and have turned their backs on him.
    Now Anitfa is rioting again....strange how they can always riot, burn and destroy and are never ever arrested for their carnage. This is all to create a diversion so we will not notice all the damage Biden/Harris are doing in our people's house!
    The Patriot Party can be larger than the other two put together!

    Dear Mike: I would appreciate if you promote my idea "Trump Crusaders" (credit to Pete Hegseth). The purpose is to consolidate under one umbrella the efforts of the many conservative people that voted for Trump and support Him as our leader for next elections. Currently my group is under the CaucusRoom site as "Trump Crusaders". I am working to create a website hoping not to be banned.
    I have a very good idea to minimize the possibility of fraud for future elections, which I will share with some people in Congress and in a private manner with you if you are willing to help.
    Thanks, keep doing this daily letter, God bless you.

    I along with millions saw thru thebelection sham and the illegal President and his consort take control. The President left inspiring hope. The puppet on his shaky throne used his time to show he is master and will usenthe military as his personal army to create his hell on Earth
    I am still looking to see if any pastors are willing to stand up and preach the whole counsel of God.
    One favorite saying ny an early Church Father " the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church" Also we Christi and live in two kingdoms. The eternal kingdom of God and the nation we live in. It is our responsibility to impact society in ways honoring God.
    So far there has been little, if any.
    Many ministers fought alongside and led the troops in the Revolutionary War!
    I now can't even walk into a church not knowing how many deluded Karen's are there.
    Hope to see more guests who speak Biblically to the dark Ages we are heading into..

    Dear Governor,
    My eldest First Cousin, Don, actually designed the BEAR on the CA State Flag. I know a thing or three about CA...
    IF ONLY LEGAL VOTES are counted in CA, Trump won the State, walking away.
    He didn't do much campaigning there, because advisors thought it was a "lost cause." Despite that... the State Voted RED!
    But will the Legal Votes EVER get counted, & the illegal ones rejected & deleted? Only time will tell. The Dems have been trying to make it a One Party CHEATOCRACY for decades!
    The Recall of Newsom is moving onward & Upward... That's a START!

    I immediately went to the my pillow website and ordered a pillow with the paintings on it. (Although I subsist on ss income below the poverty level, I will spend my grocery budget on such as this because it is the best I can offer my fellow countrymen.)
    HOWEVER, while every other site that I have opening is working, something interfered with finalizing the transaction. Something?! I am suspicious, because that is what I have been thinking so often now... many times, it is proved I am right to be suspicious.

    I will try again but probably get cutoff again, but here goes: Open letter to the new President.
    "Unity" and "democracy in America"? We don't want your type of "democracy" Mr. President. How can there be "democracy" when you intent to allow 11 million people who are in this country illegally to become American citizen violating the law? You seek to further "divide and conquer" by trashing the Constitution and the rights and privileges as provided therein. I will cut to the chase. If you proceed as you have said you will do. Then you sir are guilty of 11 million counts of failing to preform your oath of office even before this day is ended, and aiding an abetting the crashing of our borders and our laws. You have the opportunity to make a difference or tear this country apart. The current craze by your party is to destroy the country as evident by your public pronouncements. Your platform threatens the Constitution and people of this republic which already has been worn out country by pandemic mania and lockdowns. The choice is going to be yours. How can there be "healing" with rhetoric as that?
    Just remember we are all reminded by a well known devoted pastor, that we "reap what we sow, more than we sow, later than we sow." May I suggest you mediate on this. Because like all of us, your day will come to give an account to someone who controls everything.
    We will pray for you every day Almighty God will give you the discernment,strength and courage to live up to the oath you swore today. You did say "so help me God."

    Governor Huckabee, I registered as a Republican when I was 18, more years ago than I would like to count. With that said, I hardly ever voted party line. I voted for the person/s that I thought would be the best for the job. I voted for President Obama the first time because I believed in his message. The second time I voted for Obama was because I stuck with the devil I knew..I did not trust Romney. I always thought that Democrat vs. Republican was just a different way of approaching a way of "running" America. However, right now I am frightened. I am 2nd generation American. Some of my family died in concentration camps and some were able to escape to America. I remember the stories and I feel like we are reliving their nightmares. I can not sleep at night. What do we do??
