AINSWORTH: HERE WE GO AGAIN WITH MICHELLE

Now it's Jill Biden. Why would they just keep floating this idea if it wasn't going anywhere?

GREAT READER COMMENT ON TRUMP CRITICS

From Lawrence:

Regarding the second-guessing about whether we should have shut down the whole country that will come (already has in some cases), I learned in Vietnam, and again in Iraq, second-guessing is second nature to some folks. In both wars, we would provide intelligence to commanders that an attack was planned for a certain base and a certain time period. The commanders would then undertake very visible upgrades to their defense, readily observed by the enemy, and if an attack did not come, they would deride the intelligence unit instead of saying that they had deterred the attack by their defensive upgrade efforts. I guarantee, at some point Democrats will say the shut-down was unnecessary, and Trump did it for his own self-gain, and the damage to the economy was Trump's fault.

From the Gov:

Anything they can twist to make the President's choices seem at fault, you know they will. They would never have given him credit for the fabulous economy we had pre-virus, but they’ll hang this on him for sure. It won't even have to make sense. Thanks, Lawrence, for being such an astute observer of human nature and writing in.

FACTORY WORKERS VS. AOC

Terrific Article: A closer look at two kinds of Americans, two ways to be a human being, and two paths you can choose from: quiet, selfless, heroic and responsible…or resentful, angry and entitled. They were both on stark display in recent news stories. Which would you rather be, or have your children follow?

As Americans chomp at the bit to get back to work, our “Huckabee” team has continued working under tough conditions to bring you new shows every week, and we have another great one tonight on TBN! We’ll visit with Roger Stone, who is finally free to talk about his trial. Rep. Matt Gaetz will fill us in on the latest battles in Congress to get aid to Americans without letting Democrats attach their political agenda to it. ABC correspondent Paula Ferris will discuss balancing faith, family and career. Pastor and bestselling author Max Lucado will tell us how “we’ll get through this.” We’ll also laugh with comedian Rahn Hortman, and cap it off with music from country superstar Clint Black.

"HUCKABEE" PREVIEW

All that and more is in store for you tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, and the same times on Sunday, only on TBN.

COVID-19 NEWS

Here is Friday’s White House press briefing on the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus.

It was a short, but very news-packed briefing. The major points: we have now topped 5 million tests, numbers of new infections and deaths are trending downward, states are getting ready to reopen for business, President Trump signed the bill adding new funding to aid small businesses, and the FDA has approved an at-home test for the virus that lets people swab themselves and send it to a lab for testing. Also, Trump didn’t take questions because the media absolutely beclowned themselves after the previous briefing. More on that later. I can’t consider their hysterical antics to be “news” anymore.

Also, in case you missed it, last night, I filled in for Sean Hannity hosting his Fox News TV show, to take a look at the coronavirus and how both the disease and the reactions to it are damaging America. You can watch the full episode here.

We talked about the way that Democrats are trying to extort Republicans into paying for the bad policies of blue state governments as part of the emergency relief bills. They’ve long dreamed of sticking American taxpayers with the cost of covering their unsustainable public worker pensions, entitlement programs and green energy schemes, and now they’re claiming that if we tell them to declare bankruptcy instead of bailing them out, it’s tantamount to wanting the people of those states to die. Take a look at the New York Congress member at around the 3:30 mark, accusing Mitch McConnell of telling first responders to “drop dead,” and tell me he doesn’t remind you of this.

If you watched the sitcom “Friends,” you’ll recognize the Democrats' "bail out blue states" tactic. Remember when Ross’s dad offered to help pay for his wedding, and his fiancee’s dad tried to stick him with the bill for everything from landscaping his lawn to building a new wine cellar? Well, that guy is the Democrats’ and Ross’s dad is all of us taxpayers.

As liberal Rep. James Clyburn openly admitted, the Democrats see this crisis as an historic opportunity to impose their agenda of transforming America. They seem to think that to fight a virus, we need to bail out blue states, raise the minimum wage, pass the Green New Deal, institute voting by mail with no ID, bar people from going to church and declare abortions to be an essential medical procedure. As they often say at the Instapundit site, It’s amazing how the answer to every crisis is to do everything they’ve always wanted to do.

Back in Reality Land, here’s what is actually in the bill that Trump signed.

WRONG MODEL

Here’s what relying on computer models gets you: Houston, Texas, spent $17 million to build a makeshift hospital (where some officials were paid over $2000 a day!) to handle the predicted overflow of coronavirus patients. It’s now likely to be closed down without ever having served a single patient.

The bright side for Houston, aside from there not being the predicted crush of sick residents, is that the federal government will pick up 75% of the cost. But if you’re a taxpayer, that’s also the downside for you.

Now, tell me more about how we need to dismantle the entire world economy and social structure because some computer models are predicting what the temperature will be a hundred years from how.

OUR SUPERIORS IN WASHINGTON

See members of Congress demonstrate how not to wear a mask, and watch Nancy Pelosi, who blames President Trump personally for the spread of the virus, speak into a shared microphone without a mask, wipe her nose, then put her hand on a shared podium. We may need to ask the Pentagon to carpet-bomb the House with Lysol.

DAILY BIBLE VERSE

See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

Ephesians 5:15-16 (KJV)

    I think shutting the country down was the worst thing to do to our economy and our lives. This is not the 1918 Spanish flu era, I don't understand why we have set our country back 102 years when we have everything at our fingertips to stay clean and healthy unlike 102 years age and beyond that was not the case. It seems to me someone is trying to mimic the handling of Covid 19 in the same manner as in 1918 for a country and world that has everything at our fingertips there's no comparison to have to shelter us in place, wear masks that we are only breathing in our bad bacteria , stand six feet away, over exposure to hand sanitizers that are killing off our good bacteria, over exposing our brain cells and body to harmful household chemicals in trying to keep up with harmful health rules everyday throughout the day I feel we are being set up by those who are incubating us and brain washing us for a sinister purpose it's feeling more and more like a communist China! I hope I'm not the only one who see the writing on the wall.

    We have yet to find a 'cure', vaccine for the Common Cold, to say nothing for the Flu, or SARS or Aids or the bird flu and on and on yet all we are hearing is Testing, Testing, Testing will Do????
    Okay lets test 331 million Citizens at a rate of 200,000 per day, IF we can find a Test that's reliable to identify Yes or NO you are Covid-19 Positive or Negative. Now what? I can walk out the door and become infected so what's the benefit? Not a Math person but 331 million divided by 200,000 =1665 days or4.5 years to TEST America--NOW what do we do ? Lock up everybody AGAIN? Maybe we need to start preparations for the NEXT Virus and spend the next couple years trying to salvage the damage done with this fiasco.

    Always plenty to talk about. The two things that got me thinking
    1.) some governors want to open now. I love it! No I told ya so. Just let them open. It will either work or it wont. If it works we all win. If not then central GOVT, … the POTUS, can jump in and assists. It is great politics. Heads south it is on them and POTUS can be malevolent. If it works he can get the economy back on track A.S.A.P.
    2.) The gaff at the daily COVID brief. I for one like getting the daily. But I understand that the oval office has a lot going on. We have a global responsibility as well as our own country. Then we have those who might take advantage or the situation. Southern boarder, immigration, (AIR, SEA, LAND). Potential war and world policing. The economy, jobs, JOB SKILL retraining . And oh let us not forget the left. They didn't miss a beat getting in front of a camera and dragging a rag , … ON EVERYONE! So we have A MAN under pressure. He made a statement that needed some mental agility to be applied. Let me explain. The 1st time I watched it I was a little puzzled. The second round I focused. I realaized that I missed the segue from one point to the next. It was there but it was subtle. This is what I got . The POTUS was covering four (4) different treatments. Light, UV, applied externally. UV internally. Therapeutic,( procedures, MEDs, vaccines, Plasma therapy) a lot of these have not been attempted previously. And four, Hygiene.

    But then again this is the generation that eats Tide Pods ?

    You did a great job on the Hannity Show, but anytime you're on TV, you're absolutely great. Love your opinions & breakdown of the day's news. Why doesn't AOC donate her pay to help the needy as she promotes giving more tax payer dollars away?
    I did take notice of Pelosi at the mic & wiping her nose, disgusting. She needs to go back to hygiene 101!
    I hit the ceiling when I heard some blue states want the Feds to bail them out because they have no money. I agree with Senator McConnell. This is almost the icing on the cake! Look at your pension plans, etc. My state hasn't really gained track since 2008. Lot of it is because of the pension plans, unions, & no one wants to give back. God only knows what the costs when everything is said & done what this virus is under control.
    I too saw the video on YouTube with the 2 doctors from Calif. They're right about bacteria & immunity. It's very hard to put any stock into all the news from all over on this virus. My son sent me the link. I'm not a steady YouTube viewer.

    Gov. Mike-today's verse from God's word is anointing. Case in point, my little country church in east Texas is under scrutiny in today's dark times. How much scrutiny is being placed on an ideology of cramming together at designated times, put their butts in the air, and claim they are following a prophet who died at 62 and is buried in a hole in the ground. Wake up America, the Lord is talking!

    Gov. Huckabee,
    Sir, I am 79 and ready to physically defend the USA from all enemy's, foreign and DOMESTIC, just give me an M1 Garand and a case of ammo. After all of these years, I finally started reading the Bible beginning with Genesis. When I read about Simeon and Levi's reaction to the rape of their sister Dinah, being a Levite, I said now I understand my reaction to much of what is and has gone on in our country over the last 60 years, and even longer. My reaction is genetic! The Marxist-Democrats are destroying the last Promised Land God gave to the Protestants and Jews fleeing Europe because of persecution. I pray every day the Protestants and Jews wake-up and understand this. We need God's help to save our Promised Land from the Marxist-Democrats and other disciples of Satan.
    FYI: I am Southern Baptist and know little of my Jewish heritage.
    Deo Vindice!!!

    I do not care for the Harris County Judge, Lina Hildago; however, I think she took a prudent action to build a temporary hospital at NRG stadium to avoid a potential crisis in hospital space. Second guessing is a favorite tactic of the media and Democrats - it is not expected you would follow in their footsteps.

    I certainly agree the hospitals and doctors offices need all the masks, gloves, gowns, and face shields they are getting. They also need the sanitizing and disinfecting sprays and wipes to keep hospitals surfaces and the like germ free. What I am concerned about is that the shelves of grocers and department stores are still out of disinfecting sprays, disinfecting wipes, and hand sanitizers. If the masses don't get access to these products very soon, we will be needing the hospitals that we are trying to avoid. Please help us plead with those in authority to ramp up production of these items so we can remain healthy and out of the hospitals.

    Have you heard or heard rumors of cuomo foisting off badly infected patients into nursing homes? thus signing the death sentence for elderly rest home residents (in my opinion)
    and one source I read said that injecting meds into cancer patients - the meds actually do have some disinfectant type products - plus Vit C/ in large doses produces a type of compound similar.
    If the press had a brain, they could research some of this and digest. even tho the president did not say put "lysol inside a person" - he was thinking out loud -- but I loved that the DHS man confirmed what we believe - sunshine, ultra-violet - kills the virus on some surfaces - which is why we're going on hikes whenever we can - even tho our wonderful gov. closed all public parks, state parks and anything where people could go - but we're thankful to live in wide open places where we'll find places to hike.
    perhaps we've been duped by the statistics those briliant scientists have put out that sent this country into panic. duped for what reason?

    It's so confusing with the statistics or the curve. Theres so much that goes into it. There is no real baseline. I guess the only real way, which I'm sure most states are doing, is to compare the number of negatives and positives to the number of tests made. Sometimes you have little are no test done like for instance we have days where no tests are done due to bad weather and we've had several of those days. Those days the numbers will be low.
    When the federal government turned the testing over to the local government then number of testing on good days almost doubled. I'm sure the staticians take that into consideration but I wonder if the media does since they are so doom and gloom.

    A business that I wish would be shut down is owned and run by Democrats. It prints thousands of decks of "Hate Trump" cards and "Race" cards every week. They are distributed to the Democrats and left wing scream media. My guess is they are sent at taxpayer expense using Express Mail.

  • Linda Olds

    04/26/2020 03:27 AM

    I like the comment from Lawrence. Also, it's good to see that you're reading the comments!
    The media is doubling down on fake bad news now that people are getting restless. They ignore the good news: many of the 'new cases' are due to increased testing, not increased illness; with more testing, they're finding that about 50% of cases are asymptomatic and the majority of the rest are mild. Unless someone has risk factors, there's a very tiny death rate...and Plaquenil and other treatments ARE safe and effective.
    What really frightens me is not covid19; it's the constant efforts of the media to panic the public. And it's the Dems in Michigan censuring their colleague for not following the Democratic party line.

    There is an excellent interview on YouTube from Next News interviewing two California doctors who present the real numbers and actual facts about Covid 19. It totally discredits Fauci and Berks. This is a video everyone needs to see. Can you please make it available in one of your editions? You reach millions of people and this is a message that needs to get out there.

    Thank you for all that you do. You are my main news source!!

    If you really want the true skinny on the stats for this virus, you have to watch the interview with the two Drs from CA. It is in two parts, so be sure you watch #2 all the way to the end, or you'll miss the best part. They get really fed up with the stupid reporters. Please watch and pass it on. Everyone needs to see the truth! Thanks for all you do to try to talk sense to the nuckle heads out there! Here is real ammo.

    I truly believe that the economy will bounce much quicker than many believe. President Trump is not one sits back and waits for things to happen - he makes things happen. His leadership will cause this nations economy to quickly come back and flourish almost immediately. People seem to forget President Trump is not a politician but an astute business man who wants this nation to succeed. The Trump Train continues to roll right into 2020 and beyond! You can't stop a Trump Train! God bless you, Mike. <><

    The Green "New" Deal and Socialism wipes out the pass 100+ years of our progress in our nation. We will definitely be put back to the time of the Great Depression. It makes slavery look like a cake walk. Being under the government's complete control is frightening. The Dems have yet to realize that God is God and they're not!!!!

    The Democratic people who want to work and prosper need to defect from the party. The Dems want to take this nation backwards.

    If AOC is so gung-ho about "not working", then why hasn't she resigned from her congressional seat? She needs to lead by example. Haha!
