"Huckabee" preview

By Mike Huckabee

Join me tonight on TBN as we kick off the Christmas season with another great new episode of “Huckabee!” We’ll cover politics, but we’ll also have some great guests to inform and entertain you. Financial experts Dan Celia and Art Ally will tell us about Biblically-responsible investing. John Cooper of the multi-platinum rock band Skillet will talk about how Christian faith protects you from lies and temptations (I might even give him a bass lesson, if he asks.) Then get ready to laugh with one of our all-time favorites, the uproarious Chonda Pierce. And we’ll cap it all with a gorgeous Christmas classic from the fantastic singing group, Point of Grace.

So get in the holiday spirit with us, starting tonight at 9 EST/8 CST, on TBN.

Election updates

By Mike Huckabee

Friday, Rudy Guiliani tweeted that a judge in Antrim County, Michigan, had ordered a forensic examination of 22 Dominion voting machines.

It’s unclear which lawsuit this stems from. The Epoch Times has more about it. This story may require signing up for a free account to read.

Republicans in Pennsylvania’s legislature have sent a series of letters to state officials requesting a review of election procedures and an independent prosecutor to investigate reported vote irregularities, and a letter to the state’s Congressional delegation in Washington, listing reasons why they should dispute the slate of electors certified by Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf.

Fleeing California

By Mike Huckabee

Add a new famous name to the list of successful and innovative people fleeing California’s far-left policies, confiscatory taxes and draconian lockdowns. Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla and SpaceX, already put his California houses on the market and began expanding his operations in Texas. Now, close friends are telling the media that he’s told them he’s planning to move to the Lone Star State.

Musk is the world’s second-wealthiest person, after Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, so the idea of living in a state with no income tax must be attractive. But judging from his recent comments about the deadly and illogical coronavirus policies in California, that’s hardly the only thing that has him channeling Davy Crockett in telling California’s leaders, “You can all go to hell, and I am going to Texas.” Or maybe he just wants to be in a state that can actually keep the lights on.

Judging from its current government, it’s not as if California can stand much of a “brain drain” like the one Britain caused in the ‘60s with its 105% tax rates. But it definitely has one, with everyone from small business owners to tech millionaires putting in calls to U-Haul. To show the quality of the brains that are being left behind to run the state even further into the ground, there’s a large contingent of leftist activists in San Francisco celebrating driving out the people whose taxes pay for the lavish government benefits they demand. They’re the West Coast version of AOC celebrating blocking Amazon from creating 25,000 jobs in her district because “capitalism bad!”

It’s not known where Musk might be planning to move, but he’s been expanding his operations in Austin. I hope that he, and anyone who might join him in moving from California to Texas, will take a good, hard look at what’s happened to Austin under its far-left city leadership and remember that it does no good to flee California for a better-run state if you vote for the same kind of idiotic policies that fouled the nest you just flew away from.

LA Mayor bans walking outside

By Mike Huckabee

Remember the hit song from the ‘80s by the band Missing Persons that went, “Nobody walks in L.A.”? Who would’ve guessed that in 2020, that would be mandatory?

With both city and state officials in California bringing back draconian lockdown orders, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti apparently said, “Hold muh latte” and outdid them all. His office issued an order requiring “all persons living within the City of Los Angeles” to “remain in their homes,” and except for those involved in listed “essential” businesses and activities, it bans “all travel, including, without limitation, travel on foot, bicycle, scooter, motorcycle, automobile, or public transit.”

Yes, you read that right: he’s banning travel on foot. That means nobody’s allowed to go outside and take a walk. Because apparently, walking by yourself outdoors (or riding your bike through the park, or traveling in your own sealed car) is how the coronavirus spreads.

Nick Searcy, one of the few, brave, outspoken conservative actors in Hollywood, posted a hilarious video rebellion against Garcetti’s pointless ban on walking.

But the rebellion isn’t just among the rare showbiz conservatives. The Los Angeles County Sheriff has just joined other sheriffs in saying he will not enforce these draconian lockdown edicts on businesses, and if the health department wants to enforce them, they can do it themselves. He said the recent spread is most likely due to Thanksgiving and the championship celebrations for the Dodgers and Lakers, not to small businesses that have already bent over backwards to ensure high safety standards and have suffered enough.

This is what gives me hope that no matter what kind of unconstitutional policies leftist wonks in Washington are dreaming up, from targeting churches to confiscating guns, Americans will respond by roundly ignoring them, and police and the military will say, “If you want to enforce that garbage, then go do it yourself.” Good luck with that!

"Gaffe"

By Mike Huckabee

You know that my definition of a “gaffe” is when a politician accidentally blurts out the truth. Latest case in point: Nancy Pelosi admitting that she finally will agree to a smaller coronavirus relief bill than the massive one she held out for as Americans struggled for months “because we have a new President.” Nice to know what her priorities are.

    Either the President or whoever has a big enough voice needs to rally people in those states with voter fraud to march to the capital and demand that a proper and full investigation be done. I think that's the only way to get their courts to listen is that the people need to demand it! Please, any way you can help this to happen so they Democrat Mafia can't steal this election and destroy our country.

    I left my Beautiful home state of 62 years BECAUSE of the influx of the Rust Belt refugees. Austin has always been a sewer of TX and I have many Liberal Friends that moved to the hills because of the morons running Austin. You Nailed the problem of Bringing your FAILED Ideas to a real REPUBLIC and the result is TX is slowly turning Blue. I have been mulling over HOW America became Hyphenated and several things crossed my mind because of a conversation I had with my youngest Grand who just moved on to Middle School. She informed me that her Teacher told her " We cannot plant enough trees to offset the carbon we are spewing into the air". Needless to say, going ballistic is a mild statement. Then it occurred to me that I have LIVED over 80 years of HISTORY and I participated in a lot. Military, Offshore Exploration that took me over most of the mid & far east and trying to explain something to someone Half my age concerning history is troublesome. I'm having a conversation with someone who 'READ' about it and most historians have a tendency to add a lot of Personal opinions or it SHOULD HAVE into their commentary that they GLEENED from another Book they read. That's Exactly how Communism and Socialism MORPHED into Progressivism. Put a Forward-looking, Innocent title to a Suicide Pact and the Elite glom onto it and the script readers on TV make it FACT, because they Said So! This election is putting the educated Elites on display but Most cannot or Will Not see the fallacy in their own thoughts. I'm not sure America has time to start teaching Real history and what our Founders Attempted to bequeath us. Our Present course is like the Kamikaze attacks of WWII. OR- Socialism is Suicide and it's brother Communism is MURDER.

    Ahh, Mike, you and commentator Ron Perkins have noted, "it does no good to flee California for a better-run state if you vote for the same kind of idiotic policies that fouled the nest you just flew away from." How many of those LOST Democrat-run states have been 'changed' just by that process, not all from CA but those "immigrants" retain the illogical ideology that "fouled" their previous nest! In my state (somewhat facetiously), any vehicle bearing license plates from NY, CA, WI, OR, IL, MI, MO are 'TARGETS' of opportunity. Any such traffic must PROVE they are "passing through" or have absolute proof they have no affiliation with that dark side known as Democrat!

    The Mayor of Los Angeles and the Governor of California and the mayor San Francisco should take a unprotect stroll into their neighborhoods and hope the do not get robbed or mugged or shot or step into human bodily waste while walking and count all the empty buildings as they stroll and spend time with all the homeless and other garbage and trash and bear off the rats and other vermin residing in their cities.

    I wonder if her father-in-law appreciates her efforts to bring down Fox News? Kathryn Murdoch – the wife of James Murdoch, whose family owns the network – proclaimed on Twitter: “We did It! Fox is in a death spiral.

    Maybe Trump can buy CNN from AT&T's fire sale? Don't get angry get even!!!!

    F.Y.I Elon Musk, Auston Texas is a cesspool of liberals too, must be all the liberals that have fleed California. If they are going to take their liberal policies with them what is the point of leaving and destroying another state in the process!

    All those in favor for freedom and support the 45th President. Be prepared Biden is a slave to China, because they spent a lot of money on him, and the news media. The baddle is about to begin.

    I resent the action by wj, whatever, who infiltrated the "hilarious video" of that "actor" about the idiot mayor demanding NO WALKING allowed by residents in their vicinity of living. Could NOT get around the forcing of subscription to a site I do not wish to subscribe to, but in not doing so, the video was forbidden to us. This is NOT the first time this has happened, so please, don't suggest watching an enlightening video that holds us captive to subscribe or holding the video hostage until we agree to THEIR terms. It is very disturbing to us, YOUR subscribers.

    Mike, I just heard Gen McNerney’s interview from Nov 30th. If what he says is true, and he is noted to be a man of integrity and loyal to his oath to our Constitution, then President Trump should declare a limited Marshal law because we are involved in a criminal takeover of our government and country. It appears that multiple elected officials, upper levels of DOJ, FBI and CIA, the Democratic Party, the MSM and social media have conspired to commit high treason against our Constitution, country and president and the American people. As a retired member of the armed forces of the United States, I swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies both foreign and domestic. Even at the cost of my life. That oath has no expiration date as long as I live.
    As I have said before, this has not been an election but a coup de ta. Biden did not lawfully win this election. The evidence is overwhelming of massive fraud and the intervention of foreign governments involved. Pelosi, Schumer and the entire leadership of the Democratic Party have committed treason against our country. They should be arrested and charged and this fraudulent election overturned. President Trump must not concede and must not leave office until this coup is put down. If he does we have lost our country and a civil war is in the near future.

    The Left wants to make this a welfare state dependent upon the handouts of the ALL POWWERFUL government and to usurp the power of the people and to place it in the hands of where it supposedly belongs......themselves. This is why Pelosi will NOT allow any relief to the urchins she oversees without more power being vested in her and her party, this is also why the Left is so vested in keeping the people under their collective thumbs.

    The new relief bill will not have a stimulus check to help the poor. It only helps the schools who will not open. Bussiness s and cities who do not know how to manage a budget. The ones who really need it are screwed. We have the kids home all day,teaching them and feeding them but no money for us.

    If Musk is fleeing California to seek refuge in Austin, he'd better take a closer look at his new surroundings! "Deep in the heart of Texas" doesn't mean to those people what it used to. Most of Austin's leadership either came from California or studied there, and they're deep in the pile of something else!

    I'm not a man who prays every time we have a crisis but man, on man. This is one of the craziest years we have had in a long, long time. Gee, I wonder what China had in mind when they conveniently let the Covid-Dars-19 loose and just after the failed debauchery called : the Presidential Impeachment ( Democrat) run failed! Na, They wouldn't do that would they. Cover- up, give it to all countries that way we will never know what countries they concentrated on! U.S.of A. Sure is one of them and we have just enough idiots we call elected ,think they are the voted for dictators of Cities, Counties and States mush less the United States as a whole.
    That's crux of this whole Voting Fraud scandal. Read what President ( Elect)? Biden has been putting in place. Oh wait. He isn't capable of doing anything. His controllers do! Friends with China, Iran,Venezuela,Cuba etc,etc.
    Yes sir. He is a true American. Bernie Sanders will be his Secretary of State. The Social/Communist state is going to have a field day.
