Evening Edition - November 14

With the Trump Administration rolling back restrictions on the sale of light bulbs that don’t make everyone look like the Walking Dead, the California Energy Commission lashed back by voting for even stricter limits, essentially banning all incandescent and halogen light bulbs of all shapes.

Fortunately, this will barely affect Californians, since thanks to the same leftist morons who think it’s the government’s job to ban light bulbs, they have no electricity.

2020 Election Update: For those who wish America could be run more like Massachusetts but not have to be harangued by Elizabeth Warren, former Gov. Deval Patrick is jumping into the Democratic race.  Patrick said, "I admire and respect the candidates in the Democratic field that bring a richness of ideas and experience and a depth of character that makes me proud to be a Democrat.” So why do they need him?  Are you kidding, have you seen that pack of losers?

Meanwhile, on the GOP side, former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford announced that he’s suspending his primary challenge to President Trump.  I think I speak for millions of Republicans when I say, “Mark Sanford was running for President?”

“Saturday Night Live” must be as tired of taking unfunny potshots at President Trump as viewers are of watching them, since on a recent show, they turned their fire on his supporters, depicting attendees at a Trump rally as stupid, brainwashed racists.  This is just more whistling past the graveyard.  An analysis of attendees at Trump’s recent rally in Mississippi revealed the following surprising stats: Out of 16,432 voters identified, 27% were Democrats and 20% were black.

“How is this possible?” I’m sure Democrat leaders and media figures will cry.  Well, maybe they noticed that after years of stagnation and struggle, they now have good jobs and rising wages.  Or maybe they like the President refusing to listen to pompous foreign policy “experts” who want to send our young men and women of the military to stand between warring factions in every corner of the world.  Or maybe they looked at their 401Ks and noticed that stock markets have been setting new records for about five weeks.

Or maybe they look at how both sides are going about doing their jobs (perfectly illustrated yesterday when House Dems went full nutzoid on impeaching Trump while Trump was meeting and negotiating with the leader of Turkey and said he was too busy to watch any of that nonsense.  It appears that Trump is the only person in this scenario who’s actually doing anything to strengthen the US and help the American people (and not even taking a salary), while the other side is pocketing a fat taxpayer paycheck for nothing but attacking their chief political rival.

Planned Parenthood’s idea of “public service”: creating an app that helps children of any age, no matter how young, find an abortion clinic.  Don’t they kill enough children already?

Just For Fun: If you had to guess how a rock star like Rod Stewart has spent his spare time for the past 26 years, I bet you’d never imagine that he’s spent it building an incredibly detailed, 124x23-foot replica of a 1940s city as a backdrop for his model train set.  He finally decided that admitting he’s a model railroad fanatic wouldn’t make him sound like a nerd (“Do Ya Still Think I’m Sexy?”), and he allowed Railway Modeller magazine to take some amazing photos of his train set-up. 

Seriously, these are not photos of an actual 1940s city.  This was all built in miniature by Rod Stewart with just a little help from two fellow model railroad fanatics. And every picture tells a story…

    Love that you Gov love your music but this fiasco ongoing in our Congress is so terrible for our Govt today. Who are these people and what they are trying to do not our business Monkey business. Watch today Glenn Beck is sitting there as this Amb Yoko whatever is being told what to say per Goldman . she is not sure what to day? Glenn comes on beside her and him to say where she is lying . She was for Hillary and they worked for that. Not the Russians who were totally interfering. Did not take away the election she did this on her own. Glenn has the facts signed evidence? Go everyone and see what he has on You Tube. Agree to disagree. Please Gov tell the President to keep quiet no more let the rest of us out here take care an d he just do his job not let them bring him into this ridiculous show they are creating? Step out and stay out tell him please. We know the game and we know the lies and the SWAMP. They are to work for us they are not doing their job? Your daughter has an input get her to tell him. his kids to go to him and say Dad no more of this tweeting.

    I read an interesting explanation on the power shut off in California, it brought out the power for electricity, used to be a little over 1% for wind and sun contributions, now its at 17%. When winds hit over 70 mph the wind mills shut down automatically for safety. When the high winds were forcast with possible fires, the PUD shut it down, because they would not have enough energy, because of the turbine shut downs. So , it was more than just fear of fires it was the new energy would not sustain their power, in high winds. So their new energies cure alls is not so cure all.

    Dear Mike, thank you for you truthful reporting. my biggest concern is the slaughter of over 66 million babies. How can God forgive the United States this atrocity? I believe this is why this country is going the way it is. God is judging us for this wickedness.

    I just watched c-span running the HR Rep Speaker comments at a news breif today. When asked if the House would vote for impeachment, the answer given by pelosi was--" We will let the committees decide that"
    This is a crock!!!! Read the Constitution of this Country!
    Article II states:
    "The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment ".

    The Const DOES NOT say that a commitee, or two committes, if it's raining in Dallas at three P.M. on a Saturday, has the power to vote to impeach the duly elected President of the US---it says the House Of Representatives(not a committee) shall have the SOLE power of impeachment--The same House that "chuses" their speaker(no committee does that--it is relegated to the Full House--The Sentence does not differentiate.
    pelosi can cite all the court cases she wants-the ones who were bought off to render a favorable verdict---still doesn't change the language in our Constitution.
    I have tried to reply to this non-responsive individual to no avail----
    How about you pass this along--maybe you might get some feedback---how about sending it to Trump, or Guilliani?-----
    Need some help here----

    The Left today is a version of the KKK in the 1800's They want open borders for the cheaper labor as I viewed the two witness the leader of the KKK brought out reminded me of the 2 that needed Servants Butlers Housekeepers Drivers to care for all of their needs around their homes. I would include a nanny neither do not look like they had a clue how to attempt the act of reproduction and to adopt would be no chance they care about themselves only. It didn't sound like any one would talk to them everything they know came thru hearsay. Soros probably sent them their orders and money thru the mail I believe the good in the 2 is they are Hermits unfit for being in the open pubic they dressed these zombies and the pubic saw thru them not believable!!

    Governor Huckabee, your Newsletter is must reading for patriots of all political persuasions, thank you.
    Governor, President Clinton appointed me Pentagon Special Assistant for Russia, Ukraine, and Former Soviet Union (FSU) Countries, Office of the Under Secretary, Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics (AT&L). Yes, I was a Clinton Appointee, and I can tell you, I am appalled at the prostitution of a process enshrined in our Constitution, to attack the Office of the President; to sacrifice our democracy on the alter of the political extremism of the Democratic Party.

    Governor, make no mistake, this collusion between the extremist Democratic Party, the mass media, and academia, has a but faint hope to impeach the President, but the real agenda is to continue to smear and wound him to the extent that they can beat him in 2020. The fact of the matter is, they may succeed, based on the casual, superficial attention of the electorate over the latest faux smoking gun reporting by the confederacy of lying mass media. We know it’s a nothing burger, but they don’t. Make no mistake, it is very dangerous for us to sit here smugly and mock them, fixated on an impeachment conviction that we know ain’t gonna happen. No, the real agenda is to continue to wound the President by giving the mass media the flimsiest of news content to report with baited breath as the next pseudo-factoid that will take him down. Forbid it, Almighty God!
    Governor, please issue a call to action to your core “Huck’s Heroes” to counter the most corrosive attack on our democracy in the history of the Republic. Respectfully, Michael Conners

    They had their chance;(They didn't have to do any of what they did); now it is the American's turn. First take away the mics from all the nuMerical leftists; then take away the gavel and demote Unspeaker Pelosi. She doesn't speak for America. Deal with the deep state players.

    First, Congratulations Mrs Laura. Love to hear you sing. Second maybe it's the ones that watch SNL that are stupid, brainwashed racist. We kinda definitely know they are brainwashed because they sound like parrots repeating the democrats on everything. Glad the rest of us think for ourselves.

    The trio singing and dancing girls that entertained the vets were fun to watch. Rod Steward is a great artist in many ways his RR is excellent. I was blessed I cared for my 4 year old grandson the last 2 days I wasn't exposed to the Nasty politics of today. I will continue to be informed by your News Letter and Tucker Carlson I get a boost when the both of you give your opinions and present the facts not just the facts you guys add some humor with them thanks to the both of You.
