In yesterday’s newsletter, we featured a letter that reflects the way many of us who favor the rule of law, conservative values and the Constitution are feeling right now. Here it is…
I agree that voters would be outraged about what the Left is doing but only if they KNOW what the Left is doing. The reason why Trump lost the last election is because so many people simply absorbed the curated media/celebrity propaganda. I currently see no reason why that would change in 2022. Most people, especially young people, just aren't paying enough attention. Your newsletter is great for those who bother to read it, but can't break through the information curtain of Big Tech and MSM.
With the bad news as relentless as it has been in recent days, many of us are naturally disheartened and have lost hope for a turnaround. Yes, it’s true that the preponderance of false media images cause poorly informed people to identify as “woke,” and that was a factor in Trump’s 2020 loss. But since then, the left have taken their effort so far, so dishonestly, and there’s been so much violence and racial unrest (urged on by white leftists), that more people than you might think are wising up.
The backlash is coming. Look for it.
It’s coming in the form of new social media platforms that allow free expression. Media-savvy young people will discover these, and the more independent-minded will use them. Also, the growing number of people who’ve been “canceled” for uncomfortably truthful comments –- labeled “misinformation” –- will need other places to go. Those places are gearing up now.
The obvious one is what you are reading right now—the twice daily newsletter from www.mikehuckabee.com that I hope you pass on to your friends and urge them to sign up to receive. If you aren’t already listening to my podcast, “The People’s Podcast” please subscribe at www.quakemedia.com/mike where you will hear extended interviews with newsmakers, policy experts, and others with depth not possible on typical radio or TV shows. And I sure hope you’re watching my weekend television show on TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network) where you will get news and analysis, but where you will also get entertained and encouraged from a wholesome, old-fashioned variety show that isn’t ALL mind-numbing politics. My guest this weekend (Saturday 8/11pm ET; Sunday 9pm ET, and on Newsmax Sunday at noon ET) is President Trump. I know he will be his usual straightforward self!
Already, there is Rumble, where we watch daily podcasts by Dan Bongino (and others). There is Substack.com, where we read Glenn Greenwald (and others). There’s also Locals.com, where we like to watch Scott Adams (and others). As we recently reported, Mike Lindell is about to launch Frank.com, created to fly under the radar of the censoring twits at Twitter.
And Parler.com is back, building its brand and working to counteract the left’s lie –- yes, another lie –- that it was instrumental in carrying out the January 6 Capitol Hill security breach. The truth: those involved in that breathtakingly stupid mistake were coordinating on Facebook and Twitter.
Direct email is another way to get around Facebook and Twitter, which think they can act as the gatekeepers of our minds but can’t. For example, as I mentioned earlier, I would encourage you to pass along the free Mike Huckabee newsletter to everyone you know or have ever met!
College students who stand for independent thought are forming campus conservative groups, such as the one at the University of Chicago we reported on a few days ago. Leftist universities have gone way too far with censorship and “safe spaces” and the immersion of students in toxic “anti-racism,” and there is pushback.
For a long time, late-night TV has been a wasteland of lame leftist drivel, but Greg Gutfeld has a new show that’s competing directly with that. Viewers have been starved for wit –- genuinely funny entertainment that isn’t driven by tiresome Trump-hate or a predictable leftist lines –- and you’ll be happy to know that Gutfeld is off to the races, ratings-wise.
As Gutfeld soars and CNN craters, FOX NEWS is justifiably crowing.
For leftist “news” outlets such as CNN and MSNBC to maintain their narrative, they need a monopoly, and they don’t have one. And CNN has been exposed as a partisan propaganda machine, a joke. Check out the latest video expose from Project Veritas, just released yesterday.
A Project Veritas undercover reporter, posing as a Tinder date, recorded CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester bragging that they actively worked to get Biden elected, by presenting healthy, “young geriatric” images of him in aviator sunglasses, and that they totally made up stories about Trump having health problems, even bringing in medical people. He said it was to “[create] a story there that we didn’t know anything about. That’s what, I think that’s propaganda.”
“I am 100 percent going to say it,” he said in the video, “and I 100 percent believe that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have gotten voted out. I came to CNN because I wanted to be a part of that.”
“Our focus was to get Trump out of office,” he said. “Without saying it, that’s what it was, right?" Next on their agenda: climate change.
“[Covid] will taper off to a point that it’s not a problem any more. Climate change can take years, so [CNN will] probably be able to milk that quite a bit...Climate change is going to be the next covid thing for CNN...Fear sells.” He said Jeff Zucker and his “council” decide where to go with topics.
That was just Part 1; Part 2 is expected on Wednesday. Of course, Project Veritas has had to find a way around Big Tech to get their reports and video evidence out. Again, going straight to email is a great way to do it. Sign up and let the fun begin.
Anyway, CNN’s cover is blown. Sure, there will be a lot of chuckleheads who still believe their outrageous lies and stay in that media bubble, but anyone with a brain will regard them with disdain.
There’s also a growing realization that the left’s agenda is at odds with what most people really want. Take voter ID, for example. Most people favor it.
And here’s why they do, stated beautifully.
The left’s main problem: they’ve taken their brazen lies and “cancel culture” too far. Right now, corporations are virtue-signaling to the left –- another example of the radical left using fear and intimidation –- but the slogan “get ‘woke,’ go broke” was coined for a reason. Coca-Cola might have avoided getting canceled by the left, but I’ve canceled any plans to drink one; haven’t you? Trump got 75 million votes (minimum); without them drinking Coke, “Woke”-a-Cola would quickly go flat.
One theory about why corporations are embracing BLM and going full-on “anti-racist” is that they’re trying like the devil to distract from some of their other business practices.
Finally, we have NO IDEA what’s going to happen between now and November 2022, let alone 2024, so it’s impossible to predict where we’ll be as a country then. You’ve probably heard of the term “black swan” to describe a totally unanticipated and even unimagined event that up-ends everything. Covid was 2020's black swan.
So here’s what we do now: stand up and join the strengthening backlash against the lying left. I see the beginnings of a huge pushback. Sure, they’ll still lie their heads off, trying to fool enough of the people enough of the time, but as we find ways to get our own messages out, we can stop them.
