Your Monday Coronavirus Fake News! Friday, President Trump announced that he had teamed with a number of top corporations to help fight the coronavirus, one of them being Google, which was working on a national website to help disseminate the latest information. Leftwing “news” sources quickly claimed that Google was taken by surprise by the announcement and had no such intentions, and Trump is a LYING LIAR who LIES!!!

The next day, Google announced its plans for creating a national website to disseminate the latest coronavirus information. Let’s all pray that there will also be a vaccine soon for Trump Derangement Syndrome.

A new poll found that in the midst of the coronavirus scare, 60% of Democrats now favor a “Medicare for All” health care system. You know, like they have in Italy, as even Joe Biden pointed out to Bernie Sanders in last night’s debate. Somehow, Bernie believes that having the government take over health care, add tens of millions of Americans (plus all illegal immigrants) to it, and pay less for medical services than many providers need to break even will result in better care and more doctors. Then again, he also thinks you can separate socialism from authoritarianism.

Here’s an explanation from a physician and former Senator of how Medicare works and what it would do to your health care (and your pocketbook) if it were expanded to everyone in America.


Coronavirus News You Can Actually Use!

A couple of reminders to help others during forced shutdowns: restaurant workers survive on tips, so if you have to pick up food to-go instead of dining in, please leave a tip if you can. Also, if you had tickets to a play or concert that had to be canceled, and you can afford it, consider donating your ticket cost or taking a rain check for a future show instead of demanding a refund. It might help keep a struggling community theater or music venue from going out of business.

Since many of you may be forced to work at home via the Internet for a while, here are some tips on how to do that efficiently and without going crazy:

(“Huckabee” writers Pat Reeder and Laura Ainsworth are a husband-and-wife team who have worked out of home offices for years, and they assure you that while it takes self-discipline, not only can it be done, but once you do it, you may never want to fight traffic and go back to a cubicle again. And if you crave entertainment, distraction and social interaction, they suggest you do what they’ve done: go to your local shelter and adopt a parrot or cockatoo that needs a home – or 13 of them.)


One of the best ways to avoid catching or spreading the coronavirus is to wash your hands frequently (much better than hand sanitizer.) But you should scrub your hands for a full 20 seconds to make it effective. If you get bored with counting to 20 or singing “Happy Birthday to You” twice through, journalist Jen Monnier has compiled a list of songs, from Beyonce to Toto to Fleetwood Mac, whose choruses run 20 seconds.

I can’t believe I actually need to share this tip, but if you are traveling via airline, do NOT joke about having the coronavirus!


Finally, thanks to Laura Ainsworth’s Facebook friend, Ginger Pauley, host of the great Amazon Prime series “Vintage America with Ginger,” for sharing this link for shut-ins. It’s recipes for turning 15 boring freezer staples, from Tater Tots to fish sticks, into attractive and delicious gourmet meals.


Remember the factory worker who was cursed out by Joe Biden for daring to question his gun-grabbing policies? Well, the NRA gave him a platform for responding. Knowing my readers, I think you’ll enjoy it. (Warning: Contains Biden-level profanity!)

While the media were preoccupied with, ahem, “other things” (like blaming President Trump for a Chinese virus, then calling him a racist for saying it was Chinese), he hasn’t just been busy dealing with the virus. You might not have heard about this, but last week, the DEA and DOJ announced that over 600 arrests had been made as part of Project Python, the initiative Trump launched to target CJNG, the notorious Mexican drug cartel.

A reminder: these are some of the people that Biden and Sanders would grant citizenship to, and not deport them simply for felonies they’d committed in Mexico.


Huck’s Criminal Mastermind, Liberal Government Division: Former San Francisco Building Commission President Rodrigo Santos is being sued for allegedly cashing checks made out to the Department of Building Inspection (DBI.) He is accused of taking checks made out to “DBI” and changing them by hand to read, “RoDBIgo Santos,” and cashing them. This sounds too stupid to work, but he allegedly got away with it 200 times to the tune of $420,000.

I knew San Francisco had a lot of problems, and I suspected crooked public officials were one of them, but I didn’t know they were also cursed with bank tellers that dumb.


DNC Chairman Tom Perez claims that it’s hypocritical to attend both church and Trump rallies, and that if people of faith support Trump, then “I don’t know what faith they are worshiping.”

As someone with a degree in theology, let me see if I can explain it to him in simple terms. We’re worshiping the faith that is opposed to murdering babies up until 15 minutes after they’re born.


Just for a change, how about some news from China that has nothing to do with viruses? A man was caught on video driving his car off a bridge and into a river 10 minutes after passing his driver’s test. He was distracted because he was reading text messages congratulating him on passing his driver’s test.

I hear that after being fished out of the river, he texted the DMV, “No takebacks!”

    I have been a home worker for the past twelve years, ever since the Great Recession did away with my office job. Yes, it is possible. Yes it takes self-discipline. Yes, there is a lot to learn about how to do it. Just be patient. Don't give up when you make mistakes. Learn from them and do better. Having a Christian faith helps. Jesus' teachings when practiced, are a sure guide to better relations with your spouse. My wife is a full time home keeper, mother, and grandmother. We occupy the same space almost 24/7 and are still happily married after 43 years.

    Mike, in defense of bank tellers - not all checks are processed through the teller line. With large deposits that include hundreds of checks, it's not feasible to examine every single one. Tellers are the hardest working people in banking!

    Thank you for your sanity and uplifting newsletters. It is refreshing. I was the liturgist at my church Sunday, our congregation is small, under 20 people on Sundays lately, due to many seniors being in Florida for the winter. However, smaller is better it seems lately because our worship services are not cancelled and it is good to be with other people in a common faith and belief, gathering together for an hour. We use sanitary practices, but we still like getting together in our small, over 100 year old church. I mentioned that I am not paniking about this virus, maybe because I am too optimistic that it will be all right. But I should have said that my faith is stronger than any virus, that if I get it and should pass on, I will be happy with God too, as I would be happy too if I don't get the virus and continue to be happy in living one day at a time. I was able to babysit with my grandchildren today, as they are out of school, and it was an enjoyable day. We didn't talk about viruses or politics, etc., just played board games and I cooked them lunch and enjoyed my time with them. They are 11 and 6. So that's why I am happy or faithful and trusting in the Lord to help us through this time. I was making happy memories with my grandchildren today, and glad to be doing something positive and not focusing on 'gloom and doom' that the media and NYS govt. seems to be promoting. More propaganda for negativity to be in America. It is better to be in America than in any other country, always.

    Governor Huckabee
    I always enjoy your collumns and your Will Rogersesque (is that a word) humor which brings some relief to the stress of the day's news. I generally do not comment on any articles but I could not pass this up because I get tired of apparently faitheless democrats denegrating my faith.
    Not meaning to put too fine a point on it, your explanation to DNC chair Tom Perez should have read "we worship WITHIN a faith... ". Whereas if Mr Perez worships a faith well therein lies his problem. We do not worship faith. We worship God The Almighty Father, His Son our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit within a faith that accepts This Holy Trinity as axiomatic. But I need not tell you this, just Mr Perez. As for worshipping faith, one might as well worship money.
    We back President Trump because of his policies and the actions he has taken to see that the promises he has made are kept. Keeping ones word is something that were democrats actually capable of doing, would make them more dangerous to the welfare of this country than anything Putin or Xi would throw at us.
    Thanks for all your efforts.

    When washing my hands, I sing to myself, "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star". It takes about 20 seconds, and I add a few more seconds at the end, "for good Measure".

    Hundreds of Christians from Houston Second Baptist, New Orleans Celebration Church and other,have already responded to the call for prayer at 9:00 each morning. Read Exodus 15:26. Pray for President, leadership, families in stress, and God's people around the world to walk in obedience and be spared this disease. Our God is Awesome!!!

    As many people are working from home or need to be with their children since many schools are closedi thought it would be great if all utility companies offered to apply only their off peak or weekend lower rates all day every day for the duration of the pandemic. Many areas are still experiencing winter weather and others are starting to need air conditioning. Gas and electric rates are high in many areas of the country and with reduced or no salaries coming in these big monolopies should surely be able to help by reducing or offering lower rates for the short term.

    Mike read this.. Democrats know they can not beat Trump in the November election if the economy stays good. They decided the virus would be a good way to damage the economy. Close businesses and have people stay home. Think about it.

    My wife has seen a similar thing in Cuba. She is from Cuba. At least we have the 2nd amendment. Democrats would like to take that away.

    In Cuba they got to a point neighbors were watching for anyone not following rules.

    While the recent steps to stop COVID19 are being generally applauded the rationale for them is still mostly political considering the greater harm health wise of the common flu.

    Current virus poop---
    Trump made a bad decision by not praising NY for their prompt action. He has a big problem with giving praise where it is due--
    Biden may indeed get the Dem endorsement--he will also enlist hillary as his running mate--there's too much $ here at stake, and when he fails(and he will) we will have the murderess as our president.--I cannot believe folks don't see this coming----

    On a day I must be quiet because my son a MVP for Microsoft is home attending a MVP Conference that was cancelled but it's on line for all of them this week, I am catching up on the news from everyone I know, Your newsletter today was outstanding. I shared with my high school and college friends over the US. Got good feedback from them. Keep up the good work. I want to put a smile on your face----- the other day in line at Albertson's I was behind a lady who was mouthing off on Trump and the C-Virus. I tapped her on the back and told her you know you have a case TDS. She said what's that--I then said go on line and google it. The only cure is getting factual news. She paid and walked away. The man next in line said -you must get Huckabee's newsletters. I smiled and said yes. We had a nice conversation.

    Wow--Where can you start with criticism of really stupid people?
    We have this virus plaguing our nation. It primarily attacks elderly folks, esp those with "underlying" medical conditions.
    There is no data to suggest that folks under the age of 20 are at risk.
    This country is now closing schools at an alarming rate-maybe someone can explain to me why we are closing shcools when that population who attends them is not at risk?
    Close the schools--the kids must then stay home--to be cared for by their parents----who work for a living--and the kids are then put into the care of-----their grandparents--the very population that is at highest risk--DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW STUPID THIS IS??
    Going to school is a MINIMAL risk for these kids--they are MUCH safer there than spending hours at home with an at-risk population---what is wrong with this society that ignores the facts and defies common sense??

    - - this from Jay Seculow, today
    (Tom Perez has nothing on) Representative Rashida Tlaib, who just unleashed a profanity-laced attack on the National Day of Prayer. The President rightly declared a National Day of Prayer yesterday in the face of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Yet Rep. Tlaib - who just promoted erasing Israel from the map and replacing it with "Palestine" - shockingly responded to a national call to prayer over the Coronavirus by retweeting "[Expletive] a National Day of Prayer."

    If the President ever had a cause for issuing an executive order, censuring someone and demanding an immediate resignation for verbal treason, this is it !

    If you are tired of singing Happy Birthday then try singing from the old Baptist Hymal any choruses of the old songs of faith. They run about 25ish seconds. That way you are praising the Lord as you wash those hands.
