7 things hidden in the $3.5 trillion bill

By Mike Huckabee

Since the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion spending orgy bill is nearly 2500 pages long, most people, including those pushing it hardest, have never read it. In fact, most polls showing a majority of Americans support it also show that a majority don’t really know what’s in it. I’ve linked to several articles exposing the hidden poison pills, or the 42 worst. But I know some of you are busy people with limited time, so here’s a handy link to share.

It’s just the 7 worst, most blood-boiling items hidden in the $3.5 trillion bill.

Terrible accident

By Mike Huckabee

Police in New Mexico are investigating after Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun that was supposed to be loaded with blanks on the set of the upcoming movie “Rust,” and some sort of projectile came out of it, striking two people. Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed, and director Joel Souza was seriously wounded. Witnesses said Baldwin was seen in tears after the fatal accident. There is an early, unconfirmed report that a single live round was left in the gun, but prop guns are supposed to be built so that they can’t even hold a real bullet.

I’ve seen some comments from the right attacking Baldwin and blaming him. I understand why many conservatives don’t like him; he’s very outspoken about his liberal politics and spent years viciously mocking Trump on “SNL.” But I would urge you to remember that this appears to be a tragic accident. An innocent woman has died, her family is grieving, another man is hospitalized, and I’m sure Alec Baldwin feels tremendous guilt and sadness, even though there is no evidence that he had anything to do with the prop gun being dangerous. This is a time to put humanity first and pray for everyone involved, not for turning a terrible tragedy into a political gotcha game.

Your tuition dollars at work

By Mike Huckabee

Guerilla filmmaker Ami Horowitz went to UC-Berkeley posing as a fundraiser for the Taliban and asking students for donations to create a safe haven for America’s enemies and to train Taliban fighters to use the weapons the US left behind to strike back against America. The majority of students he talked to thought this was a great idea and wanted to give him money.

Meanwhile, back in reality, the new kinder, gentler Taliban 2.0 that we can deal with, according to the White House, reportedly hunted down and beheaded Mahjabin Hakimi, one of the best players on the Afghan national girls’ volleyball team. Grisly photos of her decapitated body were posted on social media.

Other female athletes who were unable to flee are reportedly in hiding and fear for their lives amid the Taliban’s crackdown on women and girls whom they deem guilty of un-Islamic conduct.

How long do you think any of the outspoken, liberated, dress-any-way-they-want-to female students at UC-Berkeley who are willing to fund the Taliban would survive if they had to live in Afghanistan under the Taliban?

The car shortage

By Mike Huckabee

Got a good, reliable car? You might want to hang onto it because cars may be the next thing that’s in short supply.

Approved pronouns

By Mike Huckabee

here are some pronouns approved by Western Carolina University, where I sincerely hope you aren’t paying to earn an English degree. You might not understand these pronouns, but I’m sure Ze, E, Fae, Ve and Ze will.

Remember Andrew McCabe

By Mike Huckabee

Longtime readers of this newsletter will no doubt remember the name “Andrew McCabe” and have the same reaction to it that Dracula has to garlic. McCabe was the former #2 man to James Comey at the FBI (Comey's Renfield, to keep up our Dracula metaphor), who was up to his eyeballs in the schemes to exonerate Hillary and frame Trump and his people.

McCabe was fired by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions after FBI inspector general Michael Horowitz found he had lied repeatedly to investigators about his leaks to the media (or to use the official whitewash term, he “lacked candor.” If you or I had lacked candor in speaking to FBI investigators, we’d go to prison.) As a result, he also lost some benefits and got a smaller pension than he otherwise would have. Boo-hoo.

Some might think he should have been grateful not to be dragged directly to jail, but those folks don’t understand the massive sense of entitlement hard-wired into the swamp critters of DC. McCabe not only continued posing as a legitimate commentator on liberal news channels, he also sued to get all those things he was so justly denied when he was fired.

As Byron York at the Washington Examiner reports, the Biden Administration has just settled the suit by agreeing to all his demands. McCabe will not only get $200,000 of our money in back pay for the marvelous job he did at the FBI, but we also get to pay his lawyers’ $539,000 bill. And his official record will be expunged of anything about his firing (for CAUSE.) (Note that this is the same Administration that wants to dishonorably discharge military members and strip them of all benefits just for refusing a COVID vaccine shot.)

We may not be able to prevent this Administration from showering money on someone who should have been given nothing at federal expense but an orange jumpsuit and expunging his record, but as York notes, we can make sure that what he did is not expunged from the public memory. So click the link to read all the details before the Deep State stuffs it down the memory hole.


Several hospitals in Ohio, facing massive staff shortages due to employees refusing to accept vaccine mandates, are now recognizing the efficacy of natural immunity in staffers who’ve had COVID and recovered from it.

If these hospitals recognize the growing number of studies showing the effectiveness and possible superiority of natural immunity, then why do the health bureaucrats at the CDC still refuse to consider the evidence, even as Biden’s draconian vaccine mandates threaten to crash the economy? If tens of millions of Americans have natural immunity, which could save billions of dollars and allow vaccines to be shared with other countries while easing mandates and lockdowns, wouldn’t it be nice to KNOW that?

And if you’re going to lecture us all to “follow the science,” then you should also follow the science yourself, even when the evidence leads in directions that disrupt the accepted narrative. That’s the very essence of science.

Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media also has some questions about our public health experts’ bizarre definition of “following the science.”

Weekend starter

By Mike Huckabee

To help you start the weekend, check out this really fun video. Last weekend, my musical guests on “Huckabee” on TBN were the soul/pop group Raydio, founded by Ray Parker Jr. They helped us create this very special digital exclusive version of the theme from “Ghostbusters” with Tre Corley and the Music City Connection. If you ever dreamed of seeing Keith Bilbrey busting a move (or a ghost) with a proton ray gun to one of the greatest pop tunes ever recorded, then this will make your day.

    Concerning Alec Baldwin - Ain't no way bullets should ever be in a movie filming site; and the dude who told him, "cold gun" was responsible for inspecting it before saying that.
    That makes the concept of firearm safety as most know it non-applicable - movie actors do point their "weapons" at other actors as part of the script - that's why the prop man checks and announces "cold gun" before handing it to the actor.

    I still say that, with the huge number of medical care givers during the pandemic's early days, I would put a reasonable demand for those workers today (new strain out there) to be immunized for both their sakes and those of the patients, considering the disease is so easily passed on.
    I don't see that or FD paramedics or several other categories of first-responders being protected from the disease as government invasion of rights, it's just common medical sense. Just think of how the current public mentality would respond to getting the immunizations WE received before being allowed to attend school.

    Thank you for what you said about Alec Baldwin. I do not like his politics and do not care for his acting but under all that he is a person. From everything I have read, this is a tragic accident that shouldn't have happened but I don't believe the guilt should be laid at his feet, it should be on the ones whose job it is to make sure an actor is not handed a loaded weapon. Most of the time I would say that the person who is handed the weapon should make sure it is not loaded, but I would imagine that during a scene he wouldn't have time to check.

    "How long do you think any of the outspoken, liberated, dress-any-way-they-want-to female students at UC-Berkeley who are willing to fund the Taliban would survive if they had to live in Afghanistan under the Taliban?"

    I don't know, but I would certainly pay for every one of them to have an all-expenses paid vacation to Afghanistan to find out. These are the people whom I strongly suspect would cheer my head being cut off, for "evil conservative wrong-think." I think it's high time that people stop rolling their eyes and bemoaning the stupidity going on there, and start treating the "American collegiate Taliban" like the threats to society that they are. This would be by Mr. Baldwin is being dragged, by the way. People are getting fed up with the unending hypocrisy.

    I enjoy your TV show "Huckabee" and your newsletter. I also watch Fox News to get the latest and up-to-date news. I am very concerned about our country since the Biden administration took office. I have two sons and five grandchildren and am concerned about the spending in Washington DC. So many of those government employees in the hierarcky don't live in the same world we do and have so many "benefits" for themselves. I hope the Republicans take back the House and the Senate in 2022 and the White House in 2024. Maybe things can be turned around. BIden is senile and whoever is making the decisions is ruining our country. Keep your reporting so the public knows what is really going on. Thanks for all you do and God Bless You and your family.

    In your evening newsletter of Oct 22 entitled "Terrible Accident" you wrote, "I’m sure Alec Baldwin feels tremendous guilt and sadness, even though there is no evidence that he had anything to do with the prop gun being dangerous."

    In this case, I believe you are flat wrong and are actually drinking MSM reports.

    First of all, there has been precious little "evidence" revealed of ANY sort or source. Next, it is Firearms 101 dogma that if one ever so much as touches a firearm, one checks to see if it loaded first. And, notwithstanding any such check, NEVER point a firearm at anything or anyone you do not intend to shoot.

    I agree that it may well have been a "tragic accident." But, this does not excuse Baldwin or anybody else for this deadly outcome. There are negligent homicide laws to handle these sorts of cases. We can pray for his soul, but the real world consequences should be a criminal prosecution like every other Tom, Dick & Harry would endure in similar circumstances.

    Baldwin should know----never point a gun-- loaded or unloaded-- at anyone. He should accept blame.
