UPDATES

I had hoped that my staff and I could take a couple of days off without having any major news erupt. That turned out to be like being a shepherd taking a break from watching his flock by night and thinking, “What could possibly happen?”

I’m sure we’ll have much more detail and commentary on these stories, but just to bring you up to speed, while we were all cooking and eating our turkeys, this all happened:

The Trump team presented stunning testimony on alleged voter fraud before the Pennsylvania Senate, with multiple sworn witnesses attesting to outrageous things they saw and were barred from seeing. Here’s possibly the most explosive evidence.

Sidney Powell also filed her separate lawsuit in Georgia, and it’s detailed, voluminous and makes 30 allegations of voter fraud. For those who dismiss claims of tampering with vote software, the lawsuit also details other irregularities, including thousands of people receiving absentee ballots they didn’t request and over 20,000 ballots allegedly cast by people who had moved out of state. Here’s why that could be more of a threat to Biden’s media-driven coronation that the vote software issue.

And here are several articles with more background on the lawsuit in Georgia…

Oh, and President Trump pardoned Michael Flynn…

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/trump-pardons-michael-flynn-who-twice-pleaded-guilty-lying-fbi-n1249031

The pardon was hilariously slammed as an “abuse of power” by some of the same people who cheered on a rogue FBI’s attempt to entrap, smear, destroy, bankrupt and imprison Flynn for doing nothing illegal, and who defended the out-of-control judge who refused to stop prosecuting Flynn even after the DOJ dropped the charges.

I'll have more to say about all this later, but for now, you can get back to your bargain hunting.


SCOTUS RULING

Here's something that’s truly worth giving thanks for: Wednesday night, in a 5-4 ruling, the Supreme Court slapped down New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s coronavirus restrictions on houses of worship. The SCOTUS found that Cuomo’s edicts were not only more severe than other jurisdictions hit hard by the pandemic, and stricter than necessary, but they were also discriminatory and in violation of the First Amendment.

Attorneys for Jewish groups had argued that Cuomo made the discrimination clear when he specifically threatened to close down the synagogues of Orthodox Jewish groups. In the majority opinion, Justice Gorsuch pointed out that Cuomo made exceptions for all sorts of secular businesses that he deemed “essential,” but not for places of worship, even if they followed the same safety protocols. Gorsuch wrote, “That is exactly the kind of discrimination the First Amendment forbids.”

Not surprisingly, Cuomo, who’s spent much of his workday in raging tyrant mode lately, brushed off the SCOTUS ruling as if it didn't apply to him and was nothing but the Justices expressing their philosophy (and Democrats claim Trump acts like a dictator!) He then (you guessed it) attacked Trump, blaming him for the ruling because it was the first in which Justice Amy Coney Barrett played a decisive role. And thank God for that! We finally have someone who will overcome the margin of John Roberts and protect the Constitution.

Cuomo is probably right about one thing: if Ruth Bader Ginsburg had still been on the Court, and with Chief Justice Roberts again siding with the liberals against freedom of religion, the ruling would have gone the other way. But he’s dead wrong about this being conservative partisanship. The only shocking thing about this ruling is that it was not unanimous. The liberals and whatever Roberts is all should have sided with the conservatives on this open-and-shut case of blatant religious discrimination.

Justice Gorsuch hit the nail on the head when he wrote, “There is no world in which the Constitution tolerates color-coded executive edicts that reopen liquor stores and bike shops, but shutter churches, synagogues and mosques.” The idea that anyone, no matter their political leanings, could ascend as high as the Supreme Court and not understand something so basic about the First Amendment is staggering. The Court ruling that Gov. Cuomo violated the Constitution by acting like a religious bigot is not an expression of personal philosophy. It’s a stone cold fact. Any judge who can’t recognize that should either go back to law school or find another line of work.

IRAN KILLING & THE LOGAN ACT

Mohsen Fahrizade, the leader of Iran's military nuclear program that Israel says is working on developing nuclear weapons, was assassinated by machine gun fire. At this writing, it’s unknown who took him out.

But you can always count on former Obama Administration officials to quivver with outrage whenever anyone hits Iran, and this time, it was former CIA Director John Brennan. He tweeted that it was a “criminal act and highly reckless” and urged Iran’s leaders to “wait for the return of responsible American leadership on the global stage & to resist the urge to respond against perceived culprits.”

If you’re getting a weird feeling of déjà vu, you’re not the only one. Journalist Glenn Greenwald pointed out that urging a hostile power to wait under a new Administration took over before retaliating is exactly the same thing that Michael Flynn allegedly said to Russia, for which Brennan and his fellow Trump-haters accused him of violating the Logan Act (which bars private citizens from trying to conduct foreign policy) and tried to destroy and imprison him.

Are we actually going to start enforcing the Logan Act now, or is that one of the many laws that go down the memory hole if the Democrats get back in? Because if we are enforcing it, then at least now, Brennan can keep John Kerry company in prison.

SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY

Yesterday was Black Friday, and the day after tomorrow is Cyber Monday. But today might be the most important shopping promotion day of all: Small Business Saturday.

Small, independently-owned businesses are the backbone of the American economy, and they have been hammered this year, first by the coronavirus, and then by politicians making up draconian and often completely illogical rules that shut down and limit business in the name of fighting the virus (not to mention the small businesses in some cities that have been victimized by looters, arsonists and other Democratic voting constituencies that have been deemed immune to the virus.) Many small businesses that were forcibly shut down will never reopen, destroying their employees’ jobs and their owners' finances and dreams.

Today is a great day to show support for those that are still open and struggling to stay that way. They’re offering great deals nationwide, and they need and deserve your support. Many have great merchandise that you can’t find in a big box store. Many small local businesses also have online shopping websites. Or, if you can shop safely in Walmart by wearing a mask and standing six feet away from others, then you can do the same in a locally-owned business (a fact that seems to have escaped many blue state “leaders.”) I sincerely hope you will.

Here’s a website that tells more about Small Business Saturday, and it has an interactive map to help you find local businesses that are open today.

BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY

    For those who are watching- The Communist Manifesto is being played out before our Lying eyes and we cannot get the Legislatures or the Courts to grow a backbone? Academia is solid Socialist right down to suppression of FREE Speech. The Media is the Product of Academia so enough said. Until Trump came along Religion was pretty much like Christianity in the Communist Nations, Underground, and Sidelined. CONTROL the message or the media. 99% Complete even normally FOX news has decided to JOIN the Progressive Club. The Few that are still watchable will not last much longer under 'LURCH' Murdoch's desire to be apart of the CLUB. BTW he is part of what I call the 'BILLIONAIRES CLUB. ( The CLUB Demands their FAIR Share of the 1.4 BILLION dollar market in China, Damn the Consequences for the Republic) So the Progressives aka Socialist have won the battle. Will they win the WAR?

    I wonder if the FBI is looking into or the other way in the charges of domestic and international election interference the fraud has been going on for decades Obama in 2015 said the interference was happening and chose to stand down on that. Obama has been Anti American as anyone person this country has allowed into this Nation with Omar and the squad coming in second. Obama is a destroyer nothing more and nothing less with domestic and international backing I feel is very close to being enemy #1 of the United States. It is a disaster the Secret Service is not sharing information on this guy along with John Kerry.

    I have one problem with Small Business Saturday. It's as if they are saying "forget about them the rest of the year. They'll make it on this day only."
    I know that if someone tries a business and likes it, more than likely they will get return business. But I believe the emphasis should be "Shop local, shop small".
    Sadly, small businesses have to mark up their products much higher (40% or more) to be able to show a healthy profit. The huge nationwide chains can mark up much less and still show a profit. And the consumer only thinks with their wallet. That's why Wal-Mart, Costco, BJ's exist - people save money there. That's why in many small towns, where there used to be a small electronics store, or clothing store, or mom & pop grocery store - there is now only a 24/7 Walmart.

    Dear Governor Huckabee. Thank you for your steadfastness in the truth. Thank you for your support of the greatest democracy in history. (By the way, this is coming from Canada,) You are a source of strength for those who love ALL life. What the heck has happened to Fox News?! Thank you for not giving up as Fox (even Carlson) seems to have done.

    Happy belated Thanksgiving to Gov. Huckabee and family, and to everybody who loves your wit and kindness.
    Re: the small business Saturday. I live in NM and we have our own "Andrew Cuomo" by the name of Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham. She, (like Gavin Newsom, Nancy Pelosi, etc...) seems to think the rules apply to us. She was caught during the summer, after ordering all non-essential businesses closed, having a jewelry store open just so she could buy some turquoise jewelry. She, like others, had an excuse. The person brought the jewelry out to her.
    Now, she has shut our whole state down cuz of the 'rona. Yes, there are some "hot spots" here and there. Only 5 people allowed during Thanksgiving. She even shut our grocery stores down! And small businesses along our Main St. all closed. All convenience stores close at 10:00 P.M., so Heaven forbid you need gas past then! 10:00 P.M. seems to be the "magical" time when Covid comes out. What does it do the rest of the day? But she is being looked at by Creepy Joe for a place in the White House, so she has to stay in lock step with the other Liberal tyrants!
    The children are being affected the most mentally in my opinion. Nobody seems to talk about that a whole lot. I have a 9 yr. old Autistic niece who is having to do the online schooling. She already has enough problems and then has to deal with not getting any one on one help. I've seen her cry and get so frustrated. They can't see their friends and play. Their childhood is being taken away from them. It breaks my heart!
    God Bless America and I'm not ready to give up that President Trump will remain our POTUS for another 4 yrs. It's not quite over yet.

    Gov., since you have been doing a podcast (whatever that is), I have been getting only one newsletter each day, usually the morning edition. Do you have too many irons in the fire?

    With respect to the be SCOTUS ruling, what I want to know, and have been unsuccessful finding out, is whether the ruling extends beyond New York to the other 49 states. California has just as onerous edicts, maybe worse, and certainly more absurd, and it would be great if this ruling applied there as well.

    John Brennan is s traitor to our country. But he is in company with Obama, Biden, Holder, Lynch, Comey and do many more. I don't doubt for a minute that Obama and Brennan, probably Soros' and many, many more traitors and enemies to our country are behind the attempt to steal the election. From a comment or on Town hall: Iranians "Death to America" Democrats:" We're working on it." And that isn't a joke!! Are We the People going to take it seriously that we have many domestic enemies right within our borders- Most Democrats, most MSM, some RINO'S and they are serious about their Communist agenda for America. Don't count on Republicans, as most are intentionally silent. Don't depend on the FBI, DOJ, etc, because it appears the top eschilon are part of the Deep State Swamp!! If Biden-Harris become our illigitimate leaders and appoint all the former Obama cronies America is and never will be again a beacon of light to the rest of the world. I hope and pray that God's will, will be to extend His grace and healing to our country, appoint Trump-Pence and expose this fraudulent election and those responsible. I don't believe God wants to see us give up and He wants to know that we truly value our freedom and liberty and will be part of the fight against evil and ask Him to fight for us!! Pray without ceasing and don't give up and pray for our President and Vice President!!!!

    Incoming GOP: I worry GOP will be same under Biden unless RINOs purged from ranks & more do nothings.
    Esp if they set up Tribunals to try Trump followers.

    Will GOP act or No?
    Wheres its spine.

    Idea for government officials found responsible for voter fraud:
    1. 1 year prison
    2. $10,000 fine
    3. Citizenship permanently revoked with an all expense paid one-way ticket to wherever in the world they would like to live.

    I think that's reasonable and much better than what they used to do to traitors! And, they get to leave the country that they hate so much!

    Gov Huckabee: With regard to the potential voter fraud issue in the swing states (I might add that the potential of fraud is very high.) Anyway, what would be the standard of proof for the Trump Campaign when they go to court? I am not an attorney, but it seems to me that the President's campaign shouldn't be required to prove that there was fraud, beyond a a reasonable doubt; but he should have to establish reasonable doubt that the the vote counting was fair and impartial. I mean that the going in assumption/hypothesis is the all vote counting is fair and impartial, so all the President should have to do is cast reasonable doubt that the hypothesis is valid. Hope that is the case. Actually, it is "intuitively obvious" that massive mail in voting opens a wide, wide barn door to the potential for fraud.

    In the pardon of General Flynn I think it is a great thing. I think it is a shame that it has come down to that when the DOJ dropped the case against him and some rogue judge has decided to be judge prosucurtor and jury all in one. I also haven't heard the left saying anything about when Obama pardon of traitor b Manning.

    The Trump people know already that Iran and other countries against us feared for their lives. Now with all the RETREADS in the Biden Administration, they pulled out their playbooks and updated the schemes knowing sitting in
    the White House is a person who has been wrong every time in political career on major decisions.

I have a GRIPE~ in your newsletter you gave a LINK to a CBS article for Trump Pardon on Flynn- WHY? when the headline and entire article was LEFT: framed" "Flynn gets pardon despite LYING to FBI twice?" and That was their PUSH?? why didn't you LINK to Just-The-News? who gives us REAL NEWS? headline" Trump pardons ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn, says the case should never been brought in the first place"... WHY did you do that?- that's not right. deb kirk

    It has been suggested in more than one "somewhere" that someone may have damaging information about Chief "justice" Roberts. I can't think of another reason he'd have drifted left the way he has.
