From Gregg Z:

I’ll get right to the point, but first know that I am an evangelical believer who loves our Lord, worships Him and His Word, and votes wherever possible for candidates who hold a biblical worldview, where God is the center of Truth; and when we honor and follow His Word we are blessed, and when we continue to disobey and reject Him, we reap depravity.

I’m saddened and disappointed in your continued tact with the election—that it was stolen via widespread fraud. Trump had his many chances in our post-election process to legally challenge the election, and nothing stuck. The fact he had the best legal resources available (and $$) and was not able to make anything stick is indicative of the fact that there really was no evidence of widespread election fraud—and many of those law suits were adjudicated by conservative Republican-appointed judges. Trump truly did not have a leg to stand on, as the wholesale rejection of his lawsuits showed.

The reality is we live in an evenly divided nation right now. Our presidential elections have been razor thin for a while now, not just 2020. We see the split division in the House and Senate as well—and have for years as it also has teetered between Democrat & Republican control.

In the spirit of Romans 13:1-5, and given Trump’s wholesale failure at providing evidence of widespread fraud on a scale large enough to change the election outcome--and this through our entire legal system--it is right for us to “give credence to” the outcome of this election, and stop with the quite harmful seeds of conspiracy theory.

It is time to SWITCH THE DIALOG to the fact that we have indeed put a liberal in the president's office—and lost control of the Senate—all because we are that evenly split as a nation. It’s time to pray for wisdom and influence in promoting a biblical worldview, which is how we will change the evenly balanced electorate away from humanism (liberalism).

Respectfully,

Gregg

From the Gov:

Thank you so much for your thoughtful and reasonable letter. What we were doing with this poll was essentially “taking the temperature” of the approximately half of the country who watched from the sidelines as the election results played out, just to see where we are. Now we know.

If you’re a regular reader of the newsletter, you know I’ve never made the claim that the election was “stolen” or decided by “widespread fraud.” (There is some actual evidence of targeted fraud, but did it decide the election? We’d like to know.) I’ve quoted others who have make those claims, and many readers have made them in the “comments” section, but what I personally have tried to do is bring you factual information about how the election was conducted and what people think about it, people on both sides. The fact that so many believe the election was stolen, and do have reason (as opposed to proof), is a reality that it makes no sense to ignore. It can’t just be swept under the rug.

What I definitely can say is that the election rules were turned upside down in key states and that it was a very opaque process, as opposed to the completely transparent process it should have been. And that causes a natural skepticism.

That begs the question, why wouldn’t the Democrats WANT to allow a full investigation, to make the process fully transparent, as a way of bringing the country together and ending this massive doubt that Biden was the duly-elected President? Why did they go to court in multiple states to slam the lid down on that process? This causes even more natural skepticism.

The courts simply didn’t want to be involved in this and washed their hands of it, so to speak. They “found” reasons not to look at those cases. Most of the dismissals had nothing to do with the evidence that might have been presented, as they never got that far.

Now Trump reportedly wants to use the impeachment trial as an opportunity to present some of that evidence, and he’s running into problems with attorneys who don’t want to use their legal defense in that way. He has some new representation now, so it’ll be interesting to see if he does it. If he has the goods, it might be a way to make the Democrats sorry they made the ridiculous decision to try him after he was gone. And we might actually get to see evidence. On the other hand, would Sen. Patrick Leahy, presiding in place of Chief Justice John Roberts (who declined), find a way to keep his attorneys from presenting it? He’d certainly stop them if he could. But this would cause even more natural skepticism.

You’re right that this is a divided nation. I do think, though, that much of that division is because of what people hear on the news and, well, just about everywhere. We’re constantly warned about “misinformation” on the right, but it demonstrably exists in huge steaming piles on the left, and there’s also a great deal that goes unreported. This affects the way people vote. Recall the poll in which a substantial percentage of Biden supporters –- enough to possibly have changed the election outcome –- said that if they’d known about the Biden family’s dealings with the Chinese, they wouldn’t have voted for him.

Also, many who voted for Biden are shocked now at his shutting down of the Keystone Pipeline with the stroke of a pen, among the 40 (!) Executive Orders he signed his first week. Some of these voters hadn’t been paying attention, others had been watching CNN and MSNBC or getting their news preselected by Facebook and Google, and many just “didn’t like Trump” or had heard he was "a dictator," but this is NOT what they thought they voted for. Yes, we’re divided, but I don’t believe it’s true that half the country is as far-left as the people now in office. Those people aren't "liberals" --- they truly are radicals.

It certainly hasn’t been my intention to promote conspiracy theories, which exist on both the left and right. We are all about evidence here, and we also want to work through the system even though it seems increasingly that the deck is stacked against us. Did you read my answer to reader Loren in the Monday Evening Edition, about examining our own conduct, pulling together and keeping our cool as we work towards 2022? It works in this context as well.

    I read this now three times and have to say really, no really? No proof? There is plenty of proof of the illigality and unconstitutional processes during this ladt election. Of course I guess if you refuse to even view the evidence you can say you did not see any proof. I am saddened by your comments. There were thousands of sworn affidavids, but of course there were not hear because they were not allowed to be viewed and so the lie goes on, if I will not look at it then it doesn't exist. Much like the old guess my brothers use to ask when we were young, does a bear still go #2 in the woods if you did not "see" it? As far as being a Christian I am very much. God allowed these evil people for a reason to use every evil scheme to get a illigitmate person to hold the office of President. I am looking up Mike because is taking his hand off this country for the murdering of over 60 million Americans through "Baal worship"!

    The FACT that key states broke their own State laws should be all the evidence anyone or any court needs to see in order to know that there WAS fraud in the election. Enough said, there's your proof!

  • Ken Maxfield

    It is easy to side with the major media on the issue that Pres. Trump has not proven his case...one cannot prove their case unless their evidence can be heard. Listen to Mike Lindel's Absolute Proof before you try to protect swamp dwelling politicians. Just because all the people in a large crowd all say the same thing that does not change the truth. If you will do your own research and not allow the Associated Press to do it for you, you will see there is a mountain of evidence that even China was interfering. Not to mention that Dems and many Repubs. don't want the swamp drained--yhey, too are the swamp.

    still playing games huh? still trying to make us all believe that you're out there enlightening the left..straightening the crooked and leading the lost back. A real fighter.. A champion of Patriots.. on the leading edge of the Grass Roots Revolution ready to die for the Cause of Freedom.
    You're just another rich republican. You'll never know what it means to Confront the left. Even worst.. Everyone else..everyone.. knows you're just another all talk rich republican.

    Seeing how this past election has this country and our government split down the middle, that would seem to me to be the first thing congress should be trying to figure out. How to make it more transparent and a standardized system across every state so each state and each counties are all following the same laws and procedures. After all it was the cries if voter fraud that started this mess. Just saying

    I got this email from my sister. I hadn't seen this before but heard of a few of them.
    Khrushchev's Prediction
    Remember Khrushchev's Prediction?
    THIS WAS HIS ENTIRE QUOTE: A sobering reminder. It's been almost sixty one years since Russia’s Khrushchev delivered this. Many of you may not remember his quote or even were alive when Mr. Khrushchev of the Soviet Union made his remarks to President John F. Kennedy.

    Do you remember September 29, 1959 ?

    THIS WAS HIS ENTIRE QUOTE :
    "Your children's children will live under communism, You Americans are so gullible. No, you won't accept communism outright; but we will keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you will finally wake up and find you already have Communism. We will not have to fight you; We will so weaken your economy, until you will fall like overripe fruit into our hands."

    "The democracy will cease to exist when you take away
    from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."

    Remember, socialism leads to Communism. So, how do you create a Socialistic State?

    There are 8 Levels of Control; read the following recipe:

    1) Healthcare - Control healthcare and you control the people.

    2) Poverty - Increase the poverty level as high as possible, poor
    people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are
    providing everything for them.

    3) Debt - Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes and this will produce more poverty.

    4) Gun Control - Remove the ability to defend themselves from the
    Government that way you are able to create a police state.

    5) Welfare - Take control of every aspect (food, housing, income) of their lives because that will make them fully dependent on the
    government.

    6) Education - Take control of what people read and listen to and take control of what children learn in school.

    7) Religion - Remove the belief in God from the Government and schools because the people need to believe in ONLY the government knowing what is best for the people.

    8) Class Warfare - Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. Eliminate the middle class. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to tax the wealthy with the support of the poor.

    I remember this very well. He also said "We will bury you".

    Thank you, Gov. Huckabee, for your insight, honest reflection, and courage to stand for "truth" wherever it may rest. I pray we will continue to hear your perspective and that your conservative voice will not be stifled. I will never be an advocate for violent protests of any type, but neither will I be one who condones censorship and news outlets that attempt to manipulate the narrative that the media so often wants the general public to believe. I will stand up for the right of "free speech" at all costs, and not only will I hold myself accountable for what I say is true or at least, what I believe to be true, and at the same time, I will expect that of others, and certainly our government officials, and all our law enforcement agencies. Bandishing guns or any kinds of weapons will not bode well for attempting to influence those who disagree with us. Thank you for the proverbial "force of your pen" and for being unafraid to tell it like it is and to call out those who contradict the effectiveness of our message with their violent behavior. I believe that "violent groups" are a small percentage of conservative crowds, and that many of such expressive protesters are actually undercover instigators of evil and strife, seeking to provoke and agitate others. Please keep up the good work. Please keep using your "scripture of the day" and remind us all to keeping on praying for God to "help right prevail and wrong to fail" as expressed in the old Christmas Carol: "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day."

    Thank You Gov. Huckabee for stating clear reasoning why many of "We The People" have lost confidence in "Election Integrity." I appreciate that there are those who are NOT afraid to speak up for the many of us who care deeply for RIGHTEOUSNESS and JUSTICE to be upheld in our country that is SUPPOSED to stand for FREEDOM and LIBERTY and JUSTICE for ALL. Please continue. And Thanks Again!

    I find it ridiculous that the person who wrote letter say there was NO prove yet there were thousands of in person sworn avidavides to the fact that illigal processes was taking place. Face it, no one wanted to make a precedence! They were afraid of riots and perhaps threatened.

  • Darrell Moeck

    02/03/2021 10:56 PM

    Amen...Gov. Huckabee's response shows "critical thinking" missing in today's society...especially politics. I am reading Thomas Sowell's "Common Sense In a Senseless World" (highly recommended). Some quotes: "The first lesson of economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to fully satisfy all those who want it...the first lesson of politics is to disregard the first lesson of economics; "Some things are believed because they are demonstrably true, but many other things are believed simply because they are asserted repeatedly." One of Thomas Sowell's mentors was Milton Friedman...a great economist...his 1979 "Free To Choose" is also highly recommended..."the society that puts equality before freedom will end up with neither...the society that puts freedom before equality will end up with a great measure of both".

    In the debate - presidential candidate said that fossil fuels would be obsolesced and fracking would also subside or be eventually outlawed. To this President Trump said " You just lost Pennsylvania" twice. He didn't. Somehow, Joe Biden won against those odds of people voting against him. I think everyone knows that Pres. Biden is no friend to all the service contractors being oil jobbers, geologists, accountants, finance people, land men & women, ranchers, farmers, investors, shippers, pipe fitters, welders, machinists, cooks, technicians, carbon black workers and rig workers.

    The “thoughtful comments” of your reader are far short of what really happened and continues to this day. It is extremely hard to accept as fact that there wasn’t enough cheating to swing the election. Obviously there WAS!

  • Patricia Hanegan

    Love your newsletter. I am upset about the level the Dems seem to hate us Republicans. Its very disturbing. They are dividing the country and blaming it on us. I don't think most people are smart enough to see that. We really need God's help to heal this country and the whole world. From what I see, the rest of the world is just as crazy. I am so so sorry that Trump did not get elected.
    I don't like what Biden is doing, but I don't blame him because I think he is not capable of understand what he is doing. He just signs anything his handlers put in front of him.

  • Mary Fenske

    If we just move on we are complicit with election fraud. The reason many people don't know just how flawed the election is,is because the Media doesn't cover the real fraud and it seems that judges as well as politicians are afraid.There is plenty of evidence, but no one had the guts and fortitude to pursue it. I would also like to suggest that Donald Trump be a living donor of his spine and guts. He has plenty (Praise God) and the politicians really need it.
    Watch the hearings and tune into Newsmax and Fox News. We can all get educated and be willing to work to correct the election fraud which is worse with every election.

    Dear Governor
    You made all the perfect points to refute Gregg who I’m sure is a good Christian man. But Greg’s response reminds me of the quote from Edmund Burke for Evo to win good men must do nothing. There’s plenty of evidence of fraud by Democrats. Democrats core value is baby murder and hate of Jesus so stealing the election is child’s play for their lack of conscience or lust for power. Democrats think they won but this is only the beginning of their demise

    Why do you think it will do any good to work for a change in 2022? The election was not honest in 2020. There is no reason why it would be honest in 2022. I am completely disgusted with our politicians on both sides, and believe there will be a great deal more division in the next two years. Do you feel as though there is any actual effort that would make any difference?

    This election
    was in NO way about who had the most legal votes that would change the result! THIS election IS about someone who cheated to win...the ONLY way joe could win was to cheat! How does anyone say there is "no evidence" watching a video of election workers grabbing suitcases of ballots after others ordered to leave the room...and seeing the counts stop and then numbers taken from DJT and sudden huge increases for Joe...joe couldn't gather 100 people at any given time and huge masses turn out for DJT and were supposed to believe joe got the most votes in history...that's just for starters! States changing their election procedures against their own state constitutions...rushes to certify...major questions about electronic systems altering counts, counting ballots multiple times, moving counts around to favor joe...There IS evidence...no court would look at it. Question is WHY wouldn't any court look at it...arrows in Pelosi's quiver? Legislatures WANTED to take another look yet objections came to nothing...because of a preplanned riot at the capital? Another arrow in Nancy's quiver? WAY too many questions and ZERO answers so the left could get what they wanted...democracy and our Republic are in peril and everyone just wants to move on as though everything is fine and dandy...everything is NOT fine!!! Odds are pretty damn high that there IS indeed a CHEAT, a THEIF, a CRIMINAL in the WHITE HOUSE...what should be concerning to EVERYONE is that NO ONE seems to mind that the new administration got elected ONLY by cheating (and suppressing some REAL nasty truths about joe's nefarious dealings) and are now is running the Country right into a ditch we may well not be able to climb out of...except 74 million plus Americans...but nevermind them, they don't matter anyway...

    Mike,
    I find it amazing that we sit here today and watch the Biden supporters continue to use their power to control this country in every way. My husband read a news report this morning stating that the radicals have discovered that the owners of the Publix grocery chain supported Trump. Because of that they are calling for a boycott of the Publix chain. I have never been in favor of a tit for tat way of dealing with things but money is the underlying source of this. I think that all of us deplorable Trump supporters should band together and boycott things like Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, and any other large company that is trying to turn our country into a socialist or even worse a communist controlled country. Unfortunately money talks and it seems the only way to get their attention is in the pocketbook.
    I pray daily that God will open president Biden’s heart to hear his voice and follow his words. That Biden would remember he is a Christians and that our lord created all of us equal. That no man has the right to try and control someone’s speech, and even worse to punish him for having a different opinion. To crush their way of making a living and feeding their family. I am praying for a great revival and that we would all stop and hear our Heavenly Fathers words.
    I love your newsletters, keep up the great work.

    With all due respect to Greg Z, President Trump has not been afforded the opportunity in any court to present the evidence his team has assembled. In every case, the judge stopped the defense short of this for a number of various reasons, mostly "no standing" or "too late" or "should have taken up with the state courts. His final hope was for Congress to afford the opportunity. The biggest lie being spread is what Greg Z says, - no evidence!! And the Establishment in DC will "cancel" anyone who tries to prove otherwise.

    02/03/2021 11:37 AM

    In response to the letter from Gregg Z. There didnt have to be widespread voter fraud to steal the election. There was just enough voter fraud in battleground states to give Biden the lead and therefore the Electoral votes he needed to win.

    We watched the Election stolen before our eyes. Look at all the numbers, the time it took to count illegitimate ballots. Just too many issues to just dismiss. This Country was the last Beacon of Hope and Freedom, to see our Constitution shredded and ignored tells me we are now in the NWO.I know GOD is in control! Ephesians 6:12 prepare!
