Hunter's laptop emails show funds intermingled with dad's

By Mike Huckabee

When Joe Biden said he had never even spoken with son Hunter about his son’s foreign business affairs, the opposite was true, and today we all know it. Recall that he said on CBS News in October of 2019, “I have never discussed my business or their business, my son’s or daughter’s...because I know where I have to do my job, and that’s it, and they have to make their own judgments.” In Spartanburg, South Carolina, in August of 2019, he said, “I’ve never discussed with my son or my brother or anyone else anything having to do with their businesses. Period.” And he stated flatly to FOX NEWS’ Peter Doocy, “I’ve never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”

Millions of people believed those words when they voted for him, but according to a McLaughlin & Associates poll, 4.6 percent of Biden voters –- easily enough to swing the election –- said they wouldn’t have voted for him for President if they had known about his family’s business dealings with China.

Social media has continued to hush that up, even when it meant censoring the venerable NEW YORK POST, which broke the laptop story. It was labeled “Russian disinformation.” (By the way, that’s how you “rig” an election before you’ve cast even one fraudulent ballot.) Today, Biden is President of the United States, and life has gone on for the son of the President, with the news of him selling five of his “artworks” the other day for $75,000 a pop to mysterious unnamed buyers. All I can tell you about their identity is that they were not me.

The POST has remained on the laptop story, however, with investigative reporter Miranda Devine scheduled to release her book on the grimy subject, LAPTOP FROM HELL, in about a month. And Britain’s DAILY MAIL is on it, too. They’ve just reported on more emails from Hunter’s abandoned laptop –- one of, at last count, three laptops that were either lost, stolen or left behind --- that show much more financial “intersectionality” between Hunter’s life and Joe’s. These include exchanges with Eric Schwerin, Hunter’s business partner at consultancy firm Rosemont Seneca, who also did his taxes. Schwerin was quite plugged into then-Vice President Joe Biden’s affairs –- more so, it seems, than was the White House –- even fielding offers for a book deal and managing the donation of his Senate papers to the University of Delaware. Typically, White House officials handle such donations, not outside business managers.

According to the DAILY MAIL, Joe Biden and his son even shared bank accounts and paid each other’s bills. The way they shifted funds around raises questions about whether money from Hunter’s dealings with both China- and Russia-based businesses was sent to their joint accounts.

That’s why President Biden could be drawn into the FBI investigation of his son. As a former prosecutor and expert on money laundering and criminal tax law said to the DAILY MAIL, “Whatever transaction you’re looking at, if there’s a connection to a family member or a friend, sure, the answer is yes [they would be investigated].”

One thing that might be discovered is whether or not funds from their joint father-and-son accounts were used to pay for Hunter’s week-long bender with a prostitute in May of 2018. But the sleazefest is really just one aspect of this. The DAILY MAIL report has much more detail on the nature of what the FBI might be looking at, and it’s bad, including corruption, money laundering and selling influence.

John Cassara, a former U.S. intelligence officer and Treasury special agent who specialized in money laundering investigations, said that “if Joe were not President, he would probably be in prosecutors’ crosshairs right now along with his son.” (I might say it another way: if he were not a Democrat President.) Ironically, what makes all of this especially egregious is that Biden IS President. “This sort of thing should not be happening,” Cassara said. “It undermines the full faith in the U.S. government. It undermines trust and our international reputation. It’s an embarrassment.”

FOX NEWS senior analyst Brit Hume appeared with Tucker Carlson Tuesday night to comment on this. A master of understatement, he first noted that “clearly, Hunter Biden crossed ethical lines in the activities he engaged in.” The idea that President Biden himself or his campaign might have profited from, say, Hunter’s dealings in Ukraine would “move the matter up quite another notch and add one more thing to the reasons why Joe Biden’s popularity rating has been plummeting...”

When asked by Carlson if we could be certain that Attorney General Merrick Garland will conduct a “free and fair’ investigation into both men, Hume had one word: “NO.”

Why such negativity? Simply put (and we agree), “The one thing that this Merrick Garland has turned out to be, for all of his reputation as being a fine jurist and a man who deserved a seat on the Supreme Court, he appears to be weak as water when it comes to upholding the independence of the Department of Justice and keeping the Justice Department out of politically motivated investigations.”

Looking into parents’ behavior as if they were terrorists, he said, is “something that no sensible attorney general would EVER allow himself to be involved in or give the green light to, and yet he did it. So, no, I don’t think we can depend on that at all. It might depend on investigative journalism to uncover this, or congressional investigations if the Republicans ever get control of one of both houses of Congress.”

He hopes that if the NEW YORK POST comes out with another Hunter laptop expose, the mainstream will not respond as “disgracefully” as they did last time with their move to shut it down. He doesn’t expect mainstream media to put their own investigative teams on it, though. They’d probably just minimally follow the story on a day-to-day basis. “That would be about the most we could hope for, but that’s a lot better than nothing, which is what we got last year from these, I think, politically corrupt news organizations.”

He used the border story as an example of something that wasn’t widely reported at first but that has finally broken through, as it’s so big the mainstream can’t get away with ignoring it. The same thing could happen with this.

He also pointed out that a President’s approval ratings are always a major factor in the midterm elections, and Biden’s are in the dumper, in part because of this. (I would add that it’s hard to tell how much of the drop is because of Hunter, as there are so many Joe Biden-caused catastrophes.) Hume sees the Democrats’ outlook for 2022, especially in the House, as “very poor” and thinks it’s likely they'll be swept out of both Houses. I’ve never been much on the concept of early voting, but in this case I wish we could vote today.

Pelosi blames the media for not selling Democrat spending plan

By Mike Huckabee

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi knows why she’s having so much trouble getting a Democrat Congress to pass $5 trillion in new spending. No, for once, she didn’t blame Trump. She scolded reporters, “Well, I think you all could do a better job of selling it, to be very frank with you.”

I guess she felt it necessary to remind them that as members of the news media, it’s not their job to report objectively on politics. It’s their job to go out and sell the Democrats’ crazy agenda to regular Americans who reject it because they actually have sense enough to know better.

Interestingly, Fox News reported that on Monday, Pelosi had talked about Democrats being willing to separate and back the vital parts of the massive spending package. But she backtracked after “progressives” threw a fit because they’re adamantly opposed to prioritizing certain spending. They insist on having it all.

I couldn’t think of a better description of “progressives” in general than people who refuse to prioritize the most important things and instead demand to spend an unlimited amount of other people’s money on absolutely everything on their wish list.

Aesop also described them perfectly in his fable, “The Dog and His Reflection.”

Amazingly, that was 2700 years ago. Even Bernie Sanders wasn’t alive then.

Airline cancellations

By Mike Huckabee

Earlier this week, when Southwest Airlines was reeling from the cancellations of nearly 1,000 flights, they denied that it was due to employees protesting the COVID vaccine mandates. Instead, they blamed the weather and air traffic control issues, which mysteriously didn’t seem to be grounding any other airlines’ flights.

Biden press secretary Jen Psaki mocked Sen. Ted Cruz for suggesting it was vaccine resistance-related, snarking that he was a “business travel and health care expert.” Cruz shot back on Twitter that he heard directly from an informed source that it was a planned vaccine sickout, and it appears he was correct.

There’s a lot of information at that link, including a pilot telling Tucker Carlson that 30% of pilots are unvaccinated and if they’re fired, it will cause “massive disruptions in the supply chain.” But it’s a risk that many are willing to take on the general principle that a President should not have the power to dictate that Americans inject something into their bodies that they don’t want.

The anonymous Southwest Airlines whistleblower who spoke to PJ Media claims there are 22 airlines, along with truckers and other transportation employees, many of them connected via, who are banding together to fight vaccine mandates, so people should expect more disruptions in the coming days and weeks.

This movement is likely to grow as more workers realize that they have the power to push back. For instance, New York health care workers are in desperately short supply, and a federal judge just issued a temporary injunction against enforcing the state’s vaccinate-or-be-fired mandate on those with religious objections.

Meanwhile, Biden’s OSHA has now finalized its rule requiring the mandate, making it more than just a threatening PR release. It’s setting the stage for a huge economic disruption over a disease whose case numbers have been dropping steadily since September 1st (from a peak of 191,863 new cases in the US to 52,327.) Biden might also try “following the science” and recognize natural immunity among the millions already exposed or the growing number of effective treatments. But he’s willing to risk imploding the economy over a forced vaccine mandate even with supply chain issues already reaching dangerous levels.

All I can say is: “Heckuva job, Joe!”

Afghan refugee update

By Mike Huckabee

Many Afghan refugees who were flown out of Kabul and put up in hotels in the UK aren’t exactly filled with gratitude. They say they want freedom from being stuck in hotel rooms and complain that they are receiving inadequate medical care. They say they can’t take it anymore, and some want to leave even if it means returning to Afghanistan. And no, the hotel they’re in is not Fawlty Towers.

On the other hand, paying guests aren’t too thrilled either at discovering they are sharing their vacations with Afghan refugees who are unacquainted with local traditions such as Western toilets. Guests say when they complain about the noise and grossly unsanitary conditions and request a refund, the hotels call them racist.

Tripadvisor’s solution was to stop posting new reviews of the hotel, because if social media has taught us anything, it’s that censoring people from saying something makes that thing no longer exist.

This is a bad situation all around, both for the paying guests and the Afghan refugees. But it’s what happens when you fail to plan for an outcome you should’ve known was coming and then everyone has to create some stopgap solution on the fly to deal with the chaos. And really, who can we possibly blame for that?

Up to his armpits

By Mike Huckabee

You Had Your Chance, Californians: Gov. Gavin Newsom, up to his armpits in alligators with his state facing multiple serious issues, proved his leftist priorities yet again by signing another ridiculous law, this one banning gas-powered lawn mowers and leaf blowers. Yes, that will solve California's problems!


Nothing But The Blood Of Jesus

To Listen:

1 What can wash away my sin?

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

What can make me whole again?

nothing but the blood of Jesus.

2 For my pardon this I see:

nothing but the blood of Jesus.

For my cleansing this my plea:

nothing but the blood of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Nothing can for sin atone:

nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Naught of good that I have done:

nothing but the blood of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 This is all my hope and peace:

nothing but the blood of Jesus.

This is all my righteousness:

nothing but the blood of Jesus. [Refrain]

    I pledged my allegiance to my country and to its flag as a student, as an Eagle Scout, as a member of the U.S. Army, as a teacher, and as a citizen. I have never, and never will, join a pledge to a flag that was carried in a violent attack on our Capitol by people who chanted "Hang Mike Pence".

    Hi Mike
    I have a possibility I want float past you to see if there might be a grain of truth in it. It is not something I read somewhere but I thunk it up myself. Could it be, maybe, a possibility that the fantastic governor of the great state of California is pushing through one crazy law after another with the idea it will get him voted out of office. He might be getting tired of constantly being the target of all the slings and arrows from both sides. But he is not a quitter. No sir. But if the people get mad enough at him maybe he will get voted out of office and will be able to take a bow as the man who is trying to save everyone whether they want it or not. He could then sit down in his easy chair and say well I tried. If things go south it's not my fault. Hummmm. Any thoughts?

    Dear Governor Huckabee...the article on the Biden scheme is the best information that I've read on their family/friend escapades. My gut tells me there will be more forthcoming. It is so disgusting to think that Biden has been active (?) in government life /monkey(money) businessfor so so many, too many years. Perhaps the collection funds need to be returned to the U.S. government. Hmmm....what a thought. Thank you for all you and your staff do to keep 'we the people' informed. God bless you.

    We can all be confident that this inflation is Transitory because I just received word from the Social Security Administration that I could expect a 5.9% Increase! Inflation is only 5.2% and SS NEVER raises the retiree's income more than Last Years Inflation! Think the SS knows this inflation is NOT transitory? I'm having a flashback to 77-82 when inflation was 13-18%. But Surely the POTUS would NEVER LIE to his sheep!

    At the speed the left is moving I don't see a country left by the next elections. They and many Republicans have successfully divided the people. Even few in the Right know our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Since Wilson the SCOTUS had been increasingly involved in making new laws. We are no longer a moral people. A basic requirement for our type of government. I know many Patriots willing to stand up but most church leaders believe in surrendering and bowing the knee to the god king in DC.
    I don't expect a response.most you respond to are just simple stuff. Guess I don't rate your attention

    " Pelosi blames the media for not selling Democrat spending plan ".
    It's really a bad plan when even the liberal, left wing, socialist media sees something wrong with the democratic spending spree.

    I checked the weather app on my phone and the first thing it showed me was how many covid deaths there were in that day in bold red letters across the middle of my screen. So I changed apps of course.
    I was riding in the car with my daughter and she turned on her GPS app. Th very instant it connected, the "GPS lady" started right in with news about covid restrictions before the directions came up!! We are getting inundated at every turn, and I bet it is connected to Google.

    Let the weather just be the weather and let the GPS just tell you how to get to your destination without COVID. It is really creepy. Thanks for listening. You are the best - love your newsletters and your show!!!
