BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY
MUST-READ: How we'll expose and defeat the LYING LEFT
By Mike Huckabee
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.
More to CNN propaganda story
By Mike Huckabee
I wrote elsewhere today about the “dog bites man” “revelation” that CNN deliberately aired anti-Trump propaganda during the election. But there’s more to the Project Veritas undercover video of the CNN executive bragging about how they they’re Democrat operatives with cameras, and naturally, it’s not just something they did last year. It’s an ongoing mission, and one of their current crusades is to “get” Rep. Matt Gaetz, because they see him as standing in the way of passing leftist bills in the House.
I still don’t know exactly what to think about the current accusations against Rep. Gaetz, but I’ll say this: if any of them come from CNN, I’ll be even more skeptical than I already am. Of course, you could say that about virtually any news story.
SURVEY: Swing voters are against Biden Agenda
By Mike Huckabee
It’s no wonder some Democrats are so desperate to expand and pack the Supreme Court, legalize vote fraud, and cram through massively “transformative” (socialist) legislation on a party line vote while they can. They have to know that the way they’re driving the nation over a cliff in just a few short months is not playing well with swing voters.
Latest proof: a new survey by Heritage Action for America on immigration and the border, taken in battleground Congressional Districts in 15 states and in swing suburban counties. It found that across the political spectrum, voters in swing areas are heavily opposed to what President Biden has done on the border and to various Democrat immigration wish list items.
By heavily, I mean margins of 2-1, 3-1, and in one case (letting illegal immigrants vote), opposed 90-8% in swing suburban counties. They also strongly agree that the surge of immigrants has become a serious public safety issue due to the influx of violent criminals, that we have to get control of the border because we can’t afford to spend billions on services for illegal immigrants, that it’s unfair for them to get social services ahead of US citizens, that applicants should have to wait outside the US to be processed, that those who try to enter fraudulently should be deported, and that they should establish a desire to assimilate into American culture before being granted citizenship. Also, voters oppose ending funding of the border wall or tearing it down by 67-24% in swing counties.
In fact, the narrowest margin of all was 56-40% in Congressional battleground districts and 57-38% in swing suburban counties on the question of whether Biden is to blame for the catastrophe on the border because he eliminated Trump’s border security policies. Frankly, I’m amazed that one wasn’t 100-0%. I can only assume that the 38-40% who don’t think Biden is to blame are comprised of partisan Democrats, members of the media (same thing), people who haven’t been paying attention, and people who sincerely believe their kids when they find them standing next to a broken lamp and saying, “I didn’t do it!”
Angry Squad Member calls for ending police, incarceration
By Mike Huckabee
Here’s some more on “Squad” member Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s call for ending all policing and incarceration, calling it “government-funded murder.”
I’ll just respond the same way I always do whenever someone on the far left advances some suicidally-stupid proposal: “You first.” Let Rep. Tlaib give up the protection of the Capitol police and personal bodyguards, and put out the word that she will not call the police while she is at work, commuting or at her home. After a year, we’ll check in and see how her year-without-policing is working out. I have a feeling it would be like the leftist city council members in riot-torn blue cities who voted to defund the police for everyone else but assign them to special duty to protect council members. Or the one in Portland, Oregon, who called 911 over a dispute with a Lyft driver just days after voting to cut $18 million from the police budget. The Internet never forgets, and neither do we.
While we’re on the subject, Rep. Tlaib and the other “Squad” members should also stop lionizing the police who dealt with violent protesters and protected them at the Capitol on January 6th if they’re going to condemn all the other cops dealing with violent criminals and protecting the public everywhere else. Reminder: the only violent death at the Capitol that we know of was caused by a police officer shooting an unarmed female protester who was crawling through a window at the time. That seems to fit Rep. Tlaib’s description of “government-funded murder” (the DC coroner even ruled that a “homicide,” yet we still don’t know the name of the cop who fired. The officer in the Daunte Wright shooting has already been named, despite the obvious danger to her and her family.)
So if you want to do away with all policing and jailing of criminals, then give up your own police protection for a while and then get back to us on how it’s going.
Fighting Back Against “Woke” CEOs
By Mike Huckabee
I already told you about www.StopCorporateTyranny.org, the new group created to blow the whistle on corporations that try to use their market power to inflict their leaders’ leftist politics on consumers. Now, there’s already a second group to watchdog these companies, and to let conservatives know when their dollars aren’t welcome and Republican lawmakers know who isn’t worthy of the tax breaks and other benefits they want from citizens whose rights they don’t respect.
The new group was founded by the American Conservative Union and it’s called the Center to Protect Voters and Their Voices.
So, two new groups in a week to fight leftist corporate tyranny. I’d call that “a good start.”
A Reader Writes Back...
I agree with your reader's comment: not enough Americans do not pay attention to what's goin on in our governements (National, ate & local) and schools. Perfect example: man-on-the-street interviews by some well-known TV show hosts show just how ignorant many people are about our history, as well as our current government and events. Some don't bother to vote (PTL) and others vote informed only by the liberal MSM. Educating the masses is the most important goal for conservatives.
