NOT THE FIRST

By Mike Huckabee

Joe Biden named his (potential) White House communications team, and the media are falling all over themselves to praise him for having the first all-female senior White House team. One problem, as White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany (who replaced my daughter, Sarah) points out: President Trump already has an all-female senior White House press team. So does the First Lady. And so does the Second Lady. The press has been barking at them for four years; you’d think they’d have noticed by now that they’re women.

But this is par for the course for our media, who have gone from madly attacking Trump to polishing Biden’s shoes with their tongues in record time. They’re so desperate to come up with positive things to praise him for that they might have set a hilarious new record for fawning. The liberal site The Daily Beast actually ran a story with this headline:

“Joe Biden’s Dogs Have Told This Pet Psychic a Lot About Their Beloved Master, and His Future.”

To triple the hilarity, Instapundit caught a screen grab of that puffiest of puffballs with a pop-up ad over it for subscriptions, urging people to “Support our fearless journalism.” My dogs told me psychically that even they think that’s idiotic.

In a related story, Biden slipped and twisted his ankle Saturday while playing with his dog, Major. My hopes and prayers for a swift recovery. But as Instapundit noted, why didn’t the dog psychic warn him?


IN THE SHADOW OF THE ALAMO, TEXANS FIGHT BACK

By Mike Huckabee

Some Texas cities have unfortunately elected leftwing Democrat governments (take a look at what’s happened to Austin), but even in those cities, the residents are still Texans. It’s inspiring to see that at least some San Antonio residents aren’t going to take having their rights stripped away in the name of the coronavirus, not when they live in the shadow of the Alamo.

In fact, we need to bring back teaching real American history, because there are a lot of people in blue states who desperately need to remember the Alamo.

NEW CHINESE PROPAGANDA

By Mike Huckabee

China tried to claim that Italy was the original source of the (Chinese) coronavirus, but nobody bought that, so now they’re trying to blame it on India. I doubt anyone will buy that, either. But the important thing to remember is not so much where it started (China), but that the Chinese government covered it up, blocked outside health experts and their own doctors from dealing with it or talking about it, lied about it, got the WHO to lie about it, and continued letting people spread it around the world until it was too late to contain it.

Biden tried to blame Trump for it, but the fact is that it went all over the world, and it continues spreading (as all viruses since the dawn of time have) because his buddies in Beijing let it get out and wasted valuable time trying to cover it up, which made efforts to contain it ultimately futile, like putting masks on the horses after they got out of the open barn door. No, the virus came from China, and it spread around the world because of China. The communist government in China can rewrite their own history, but we’re not going to let them do it here, no matter how much help the media try to give them.

JOHNS HOPKINS REVERSES ITSELF

By Mike Huckabee

Johns Hopkins University published and then retracted a study that found that there has been no major increase in the expected number of deaths among all age groups in the US this year due to COVID-19.

The researcher found that while there was a sharp increase in COVID-19 deaths, there was a drop in deaths attributed to other causes, such as pneumonia or heart disease. In fact, “the total decrease in deaths by other causes almost exactly equals the increase in deaths by COVID-19.” He theorizes that deaths from other causes are being categorized as COVID-19 deaths. Also, the very elderly victims might have been expected to die of old age, seasonal flu or other causes if the pandemic hadn’t occurred.

Interestingly, Johns Hopkins University didn’t retract the study because they could cite anything inaccurate, but because it “was being used to spread misinformation about the pandemic,” and discount the danger of the virus or the need to take precautions. But if the numbers are correct, then why should the study be retracted? Is it the job of the university to only publish scientific facts that support a particular narrative, or to suppress facts just because someone might misinterpret or misuse them?

The researcher said he was even accused online of being a “COVID denier” (of course, he was.) He called those false accusations “devastating,” but said, “I stand my ground. The goal is never to undermine the effects of COVID-19 but to suggest a possible over-exaggeration in death numbers due to the pandemic.”

I thought we were supposed to listen to the scientists. I must be getting old because I remember when liberals thought that refusing to accept “inconvenient truths” was a bad thing.

A VERY SUBJECTIVE TERM

By Mike Huckabee

Remember when Hollywood liberals and feminists were all riled up about “Me Too” and started the “Time’s Up” movement to fight sexual abuse of women in the workplace? That all went out the window when Joe Biden was nominated, but until that point, they were so worked up that some top name Hollywood celebrities started a charity composed of two groups, the Time’s Up Foundation and Time’s Up Now Inc. They had such luminaries as Reese Witherspoon, Amy Schumer and Brie Larson on their boards, and they quickly went to work raising money to fight sexual predators.

The New York Post reports that in their founding year of 2018, the nonprofit organization raised over $3.6 million. It spent $157,155 on conferences on “gender equity,” which included “a retreat at the Ojai Valley Inn, a luxury resort and spa north of Los Angeles. The retreat was dominated by agents from the Creative Artists Agency, who apparently had difficulty deciding on what the core mission should be.” They also spent $288,000 on advertising, $112,000 on a public relations firm, over $58,000 on travel, and $1.4 million on salaries. That included $342,308 to former WNBA head Lisa Borders, who ran the group for four months before resigning after her adult son was accused of sexual misconduct.

I’ll let you click the link to find out how much they spent on supporting women who made legal claims of sexual harassment. They say their legal defense fund has spent over $1.7 million to help women, but the share of it that the two groups kicked in themselves is less than what Borders was paid for four months’ work.

Apparently, “non-profit” is a very subjective term.

RIP TO THE MAN IN THE DARTH VADER SUIT

By “Huckabee” pop culture guru Pat Reeder (http://www.facebook.com/hollywoodhifibook)

We are sad to report that British actor David Prowse has died at 85. He was perhaps the most popular silent movie actor since Charlie Chaplin. Prowse, with his 6-foot-7-inch height and bodybuilder’s physique, was the performer inside the Darth Vader costume in “Star Wars,” although his lines were dubbed in by James Earl Jones.

Prowse did play many other roles, from “Dr. Who” to “The Beverly Hillbillies” movie, including playing Frankenstein in three different films. In 2000, he was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire, but surprisingly, not for “Star Wars.” It was for playing the Green Cross Code Man, a character who taught children about road safety. Ironic, considering he will be most remembered for portraying a character who (spoiler alert!) cut off his son’s hand with a light saber.

    I was a very early skeptic of the numbers being presented and when I researched the author of the 2.2 Million deaths I knew I was going to be correct. My initial response was " It may take 10 years or more before the media gets the Facts right, But we will look back on this and wonder How were we so Stupid to buy this Exploded Story. I'm not trying to be pollyannish about the people who have lost loved ones, I buried a Son that died of Aids at age 27 in 1991. 29 years later and Treatment is available but NO Vaccine for prevention. How many years has the Common Cold been around with NO Vaccine, and on and on. I also noticed and pointed out that it was strange that ALL Other DEATHS had simply VANISHED from the scene while we were bombarded by C-19 Cases and Deaths WITH C-19 ( Notice NOT BY C-19 but With). Totally ignored were the Recoveries or a comparison of deaths per 1000 and so on. In other words, THE STORY was TESTING<TESTING<TESTING. If I test this AM and am exposed to the same in the PM what has the TEST accomplished except an EASY "BOMBSHELL" article. TOTALLY ignored was the psychological damage done to our Youth and now we are finding out MANY ill-informed have been SCARED to death and refuse to even leave their homes because of the FEAR created by a media that is hungry for something to fill the 24/7 news cycle and being young (and innocent) just spew what is in the teleprompter and ABANDON Journalism by injecting their Personal OUTRAGEOUS Projections. ( Stupid is as Stupid DOES) The Mask mandate was the Perfect tool to come along when ANTIFA and BLM decided? were paid to burn and loot select cities in America while the MSM labeled the fires in the background as 'Mostly Peaceful' Protesters. It also gave the Progressives the perfect storm to accomplish voter fraud on a scale never seen before in America! Trump has the Socialist/Progressives/Big TECH Oligarchs scared stiff about having their 1.7 BILLION Market in China Disrupted and are doing everything possible to salvage their Cash Cow from being reigned in.

    Get ready for it everybody! this is Obama's third term, make so mistake. He will be a "shadow" President (after riding in like a Trojan horse in 2008) with Biden being the puppet while he (Obama) pulls the strings behind the scenes. Hillary may even make an appearance as Miss Piggy. And BTW, has it occurred to anyone else that China may be resending the virus again and again with all the products they ship to us daily? What better way to keep us sickly, right? And I heard (on WJR) that those fantastic Dominion vote counting machines were capable of counting 143,000 ballots every five minutes. Five minutes equates to 300 seconds. So that means those machines can count 476 ballots every second? Say what? Maybe that's why they made so many mistakes.

    The John Hopkins study has been my conclusion all along during this pandemic! The medical facilities know there is more insurance $$$ to collect for the covid diagnoses. So exaggeration of (lying about) the cases and deaths has been a gold mine for them!

    I truly believe more cases this flu season are being tagged as covid. Certainly makes sense to me!!! The DIMS are going to "milk" this pandemic as long as possible. If they end up.in power, I suspect we will hear Covid19 for another four years! Ugh!

    Please tell our representatives to never gain shut down our economy, churches, etc. etc. etc. We should treat this like the Measles in which all good moms would take their children to visit the cousin with Measles. Two weeks later we all had the measles. Much better as a child than an adult. I have personally bought the cure to Covid 19 which has been promoted by Dr. Richard Bartlett of Midland Texas. He has used Budesonaide (used for children with asthma) adminstered with a nebulizier along with zinc and vitamin D and an antibiotic in case of pnuemonia. This medicine is over the counter in every country except the USA.

    With news coming out today of AG Barr telling the phony Associated Press that there has not been any evidence of voter fraud and that if there was none of it that would change the outcome of the election for Trump!!! Really? All the affidavits, witnesses and whistle blowers in at least six states, etc. At this time with AG Barr having not been willing to release an interim report or a report on the Russia hoax and now these statements- President Trump should FIRE Barr and worthless cronies like Christopher Wray of the FBI. He should pardon Paul Manafort and anyone else that was a scapegoat because they were associated with Trump. Right now with phony judicial decisions, phony and cronies like Barr and Wray and many others, sure appears like all is being swept under the rug of the corrupt disgusting Democrats and corrupt anti-America MSM. If God chooses to intervene this nation is in serious trouble. Maybe God has had enough of a nation that murders babies, legalizes same sex marriage, etc. Maybe there is going to be judgement from God. Maybe God is going to usher in the fulfillment of prophecies with the next major biblical event- the Rapture of believers. I don't know because all that is going on is no surprise to God in these end times. Doesn't mean it isn't more than disheartening to see our nation being destroyed from within, but God will determine the outcome. And if you are s Bible believing, born again believer then you know and understand how it all ends and we as believers absolutely win through Jesus Christ!!!!

    Now that seems interesting, the report from Johns Hopkins University. I have hear (though the grape vine) that the test that is used for testing the Covid-19 also is the one used for all the Covid vises and the common flu. So if this is true then we really don't know how many people have died from the Covid-19 vises. One could then ask how many people have died for any one of the other Covid vises or the common flu (seasonal flu). This report from Johns Hopkins seems to support this talk.

    I agree with Lin Wood, Partial Martial Law should be put in place and a whole new election should take place like Lin Wood quoted that President Abraham Lincoln had to do. Today's domestic terrorists, antifa, blm, leftist socialists, Democrats trying to undermine the U.S. Constitution, should be stopped by any means possible, in order to maintain the integrity of the 12th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, in order to save the Republic of the United States of America. Read Lin Wood's article in . Trending Politics [email protected]

    It is an excellent article and I was thinking and commenting to you, Gov. Mike, the same things. I didn't know President Lincoln actually did something to stop the civil war antagonists from the South. Wow, and like Lin Wood stated in the article, what the domestic terrorists and China are doing to America, is FAR WORSE than the Civil War. In order to Save America, the Great United States of America from being wiped off the face of the Earth, I totally agree with Lin Wood's suggestion to President Trump about martial law. It has come to this, unfortunately, thanks to those rioters, criminals, thugs, etc., all funded by the Democrats, and we need to STOP IT NOW! No matter what, we CANNOT LET THE DEMOCRAT SOCIALIST COMMUNISTS INFLUENCE FROM CHINA TAKE OVER AMERICA! NEVER EVER SHALL WE EVER GET RID OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! We have to save it for our children and grandchildren to be able to live in a free and non-communist, non-socialist country!

    This country and its Americans like myself have no idea how the CCP has influenced the Deep State and I would bet 90% of congress is a member of the Deep State. Our large corporations have a huge stake in the Deep State and of of course the the MSM delivers most of the lies to the entire country. I still believe in most Americans. I do not associate with many Urban residents much anymore or a lot of people of any kind I am in with the elderly. Yes I take precautions I still love my kids and grandkids not ready to leave them yet they are so much fun. We want to keep the Constitution in tack and I believe older dems want to keep the it also. Today most Real Americans want Trump to lead this country for 4 more years he still wants America First I remember the horror of an Obama run Country and I am old I don't have time for another term of Anti America first , Biden, will to his excitement make restless corpses out of the elderly with Obama's Destroy America and the Free World first Agenda.

    Am I mistaken, or is the death rate for Covid 19 now down around the morbidity rate of the flu now? If so, are we going to shut down our country every time the flu comes along or is this the "new normal"?
