BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 

 

Cancelled

By Mike Huckabee

Fox Business News announced that it was cancelling its highest-rated show, “Lou Dobbs Tonight.” The network said it was part of programming changes that are “regularly weighed” and was a planned post-election change. However, speculation is rampant that they were distancing themselves from Dobbs after he was named in a $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit by the voting technology company Smartmatic over claims of 2020 election fraud.

And for the record: no, I have no inside information on what happened. But I wish Dobbs the best and assume he will soon be back on some other media outlet.

The Ship Is Sinking

By Mike Huckabee

Another of our moral superiors from the slanderously-misnamed “Lincoln Project” has abandoned the sinking, rat-infested ship

This is what pulled the plug

As they turn on each other, let me remind you that even liberals long ago blasted them as grifters, although it would have been nice if someone had also spoken up earlier about the alleged pedophilia.

Bombshells

By Mike Huckabee

Two bombshell pieces of news struck the country music world at once this week. A rising star found himself “canceled” by radio, his record label and the ACM Awards after video emerged of him drunkenly using a racial slur, while another rising country performer came out as gay. Personally, I miss Don Williams.

Hot mic

By Mike Huckabee

Here’s why politicians should remember when they’re wearing microphones: Rep. Steve Cohen and other House Judiciary Committee Democrats were overheard ridiculing Rep. Matt Gaetz’s proposal to say the Pledge of Allegiance before hearings. Cohen mocked people who have flags at their homes and say the Pledge. There were also some snarky comments about people who get on their knees and pray. Funny, I’d suggest Rep. Cohen do a lot more of that.

"America Is Back?"

By Mike Huckabee

After issuing 40 executive orders that will weaken America’s borders, undermine America’s economy, take away Americans’ freedoms, destroy Americans’ jobs and empower America’s enemies, President Biden declared that “America is back!” Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had an excellent follow-up question to that.

My question would be, “Do you mean America is in the back of the line? Because after Trump put America first, that’s where you seem intent on putting it.”

Ken Starr Weighs In On Second Impeachment

By Mike Huckabee

Former appellate judge and US Solicitor General Ken Starr denounced the upcoming Senate impeachment trial of former President Trump as “a flagrant violation of the text, structure and history of our Constitution,” as well as historical precedents, such as the way talk of impeaching of Richard Nixon immediately ended when he resigned.

Noting that all Senators (believe it or not) take an oath to defend and support the Constitution, Starr urged them to, for once, leave “politics at the bloody door” and drop this before they establish a pernicious precedent that will open up all former officials to being “impeached” for political reasons.

Starr also suggested that Senators write a letter to Chief Justice John Roberts, asking him to explain his decision to refuse to preside over the trial, since the Constitution requires that in real impeachments of Presidents. Roberts declined to preside or to explain why. Starr thinks Roberts knows this farce is unconstitutional and it would kill it quickly if he’d just say so.

All I can say is, “He wants Chief Justice John Roberts to actually say that something is unconstitutional? Doesn’t he know Justice Roberts thinks that’s not his job?”

Stop Doing Nothing

By Mike Huckabee

I know I’m getting a lot of flak in the comments for telling Republicans to knock off the suicidal third party talk and the despondency and the “I’ll vote Democrat just to show how mad I am at the Republicans” nonsense. I know that a lot of people are feeling that, and here are the numbers to prove it.

Look, if you want to cut off your nose to spite your face, do it with a pair of scissors, not by voting Democrat. That will make the entire country bleed.

Taking your ball and going home literally means you let the other side win by default. The Republicans have an excellent chance of retaking both the House and Senate in 2022 and stopping this full-scale assault on our rights, freedoms, security and economy, but not if we don’t show up to vote. And I mean vote for a major party that actually has a chance of winning, not a splinter party that just splits the conservative vote and elects the left with a plurality. Republicans in Georgia didn’t show up for the runoffs in the same numbers as they did in November, and that gave us two of the most radical Senators in history and a tied Senate controlled by Kamala Harris.

I’m sorry if you don’t like me telling you the truth, but there are any number of media outlets that tell people only what they want to hear, regardless of reality. Here are some cold facts: If you claim to be a conservative yet you vote to empower leftists, you’re not a conservative. As for just sitting out future elections, I’ll remind you of the wisdom attributed to Edmund Burke:

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

Latest Jobs Report

By Mike Huckabee

The latest government jobs report shows that due to the endless pandemic lockdowns, only 49,000 jobs were created in January. The unemployment rate dropped from 6.7 to 6.3%, but only because of people being so discouraged that they dropped out of the job market and stopped looking for work.

Meanwhile, President Biden is issuing one executive order after another that seem to indicate he’s more interested in destroying jobs than in creating them. As this post at Instapundit makes clear, Biden knows that workers are struggling, but he still plans to legalize 11 million illegal immigrants and open up the borders anyway. I like the question at the end of this post. My answer: “Heck, yes!”

Democrats’ New Definition of “Terrorist”

By Mike Huckabee

Anyone who voted for Trump or who expresses doubts about the 2020 election: “Terrorists.”

Members of Yemen’s Iran-backed militia: “Not terrorists.”

Hold Democrats To The Same Standard

By Mike Huckabee

I mentioned yesterday that if Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is to be stripped of her committee assignments, then it’s only fair that Democrats be held to the same standard. So thanks to Matt Margois at PJ Media for compiling a list of them.

    WHEN I HEARD THAT CHIEF JUSTICE JOHN ROBERTS REFUSED TO PRESIDE OVER THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL I WAS LIVID. IT'S TWO TIMES THE SUPREME COURT DISAPPOINTS THE AMERICAN ELECTORATE, THIS IS ABOUT FAIRNESS, LEAHY A DEMOCRAT WHOM IS PROBABLY BIASED, WHOM HAS TO BE BIASED OR HOW WILL HE FACE HIS PARTY IF HE DIDN'T FOLLOW THROUGH AS THEY WILL EXPECT HIM TOO, BIAS TOWARDS IMPEACHMENT. OUR CONSTITUTION SAY CHIEF JUSTICE JOHN ROBERTS HAS THE AUTHORITY TO PRESIDE OVER THIS TRIAL BUT HE REFUSES, WE GET POUNDED LEFT AND RIGHT FROM THOSE WE EXPECT COMMON DECENCY IN RESPECTING AND ABIDING BY OUR CONSTITUTION, THEY DISAPPOINT AND SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. CERTAINLY TRUMP IS ENTITLED TO A FAIR AND UNBIASED TRIAL AS HIS SUPPORTERS ARE!

    In your article, I am certainly going to keep voting Republican but what good will it do if the Democrats are the only ones allowed to count the votes? The actual vote could be Republican vote 75,000: Democrat vote 25,000. The next day the reverse is announced. That is why I am despondent about our country's future.

    Thank you for being a voice of reason Gov Huckabee! Although many Republicans in the House of Representatives and Senate are part of the Swamp, we do have some Representatives and Senators who are conservative, have a voice and are speaking up for those of us who voted for them! We do need term limits! Once an official's term of service ends, he/she needs to return to their choice of civilian work with NO more perks and they should never be allowed to participate in a PAC or Lobby! That should certainly reduce and hopefully end the STINKING D.C. SWAMP!

    Regarding your "Stop Doing Nothing" section, I am a conservative who used to consider myself independent. The behavior of Dems in office in the last 5 years has convinced me never to vote blue again. However, the establishment Republicans really don't represent me either. Firing Lou Dobbs? Dropping support of President Trump like he is poison after all he did in the last four years? That would be you, Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Paul Ryan... If there is a successful rising of a third party, they probably will get my vote. They may not succeed in two years but I'll bet they do in four.

    "it’s only fair that Democrats be held to the same standard"

    Problem is WHO is going to do that? Certainly not you rinos who constantly spew the same old rhetoric from you pie holes BUT YOU NEVER DO ANYTHING TO BACK UP YOUR EMPTY WORDS!!!! And then you think the people that will vote for jackasses or a 3rd party are WRONG??? WHAT is the difference between voting for a jackass who continues to destroy America or a rino who does NOTHING to stop the jackasses. If I recall you rinos had the senate and congress (btw a bunch of baboons is called a congress) when odumbo was in the white house BUT you rinos still allowed him and the jackasses to run rough shod over the country!! NOW that the jackasses have complete control, you rinos will do LESS than nothing!!! I refuse to vote for a jackass but there are no rinos to vote for who are worth my time, gas or ink so I will just not vote!! My vote means nothing anyway because you rinos allow the jackasses to get away with voting fraud so I cannot be sure my vote won't go to a jackass anyway!! SO if I don't vote I KNOW my vote isn't going to a jackass!! "IF" you rinos really cared about America you would DO SOMETHING but all you care about is feeding your huge arrogant obnoxious obscene narcissistic egos and stuffing corrupt cash into your pockets. The political system in this country is now as corrupt as a 3rd world country!!!!

    "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

    Right you are, Governor! The question of the era is: what have Republicans been doing, aside from "losing gracefully," cowering, and "compromising" away the Constitution since long about 1984? From where I'm sitting, with a small handful of notable exceptions, that's pretty much all that the Republicans have been doing. Maintaining the Status Quo right along with the "fortify the election" crowd noted in that Time magazine article. You want to convince people not to "cut off their nose to spite their face?" Schill for the GOP. Give us some actual accomplishments UNRELATED to Donald Trump. A few good governors come to mind. But as far as standing against fascism, censorship, indoctrination and the dissolution of America as a free, capitalist, lawful society? From 1984 onwards all I see are cowards. The "lesser of two evils" is no longer sufficient. If I have to live in the repressive hell that's been unleashed then I'll be damned if I reward the party that fiddled for the past 30 years while the fascist Left burned the nation. You want to convince me otherwise? Show me Republican candidates who actually give a damn, and have spine enough to fight.

    Governor Huckabee - Thank you for continuing to be a voice of reason in all the current craziness. I agree with you that we do not need a new political party. Instead we need to primary all the establishment rats in the Republican party right down to the local level. We need to look at their voting record as a guide to see if they are supporting their constituents or need to be replaced.

    With the recent declaration that over 70 million of us are terrorist, I wonder what games our children will play? When I was growing up we played Cowboys and Indians or Cops and Robbers and had a great childhood, even though part of it was spent in a single parent home, so I guess my grandchildren might play Terrorists and Traitors. Just saying.

    Do you think the Canadian ban on all 2022 cruises is retribution for the Biden pipeline cancelation?

    Have you met face to face with Joe Manchin yet? If no, why not?

    I think the same will happen when illegals are let in, that they are leaving one communist country and DO NOT want to come into another communist controlled country. Just like the Cubans that voted for President Trump, the illegals will also be for President Trump and NOT FOR Democrat Socialists! Also, with all the illegals being let in, and all the solar panels being set up, and farmland being used for solar panels and not food growing, food will run out, so again the Democrats are being like Stalin and starving the peasants to save the govt. dictators by not allowing farmers to grow food. I watched a PBS show the other night about Ukraine and how the people were starved to death by Stalin as he sold all the food to outside the country and that farmers who grew the food were shot if they tried to keep some for their own families and country. In today's world with bidden corruptism, all the food farmers grow in America will be shipped to China to feed them and not Americans, as a pay-back for China producing and spreading the Chinese Virus that gave the demoncrats their dictatorial power over Americans, or better known as 'peasants' like Stalin did. So small family back-yard farms should be started again to make sure we have food for ourselves and hide our food from those demons that will take it from us. Prepping again for end-of-times needs to start again like it did during Obummer! Being self-sufficient from your own hands is always better than to depend on the govt. to help, esp. when the govt. likes foreigners better than their own countrymen. This is the reality for the next 4 years, so get prepared and prep for your own survival.

    On a positive note, I noted Dr. Ben Carson is starting a think tank aimed at bringing people together. I think he will do a great job. Looks like he is aiming at the role of history in education.
    And while the impeachment is underway, the media hopes we will be too distracted to notice that Suzi Levine, from Wa. state, was picked to assist in processing unemployment claims. She was involved in over 600 million cybertheft fraud scandal in Wa state EmployeeSec Dept of Commissioner (linked to Nigerian Fraud Ring). NY Governor Cuomo mismanaged Covid-19 andm9 of this top health officials resigned. 207 House Democrats voted to get rid of gender specific words in House Official Rules Documents. Biden wrote an EO waiving Title IX, allowing Transgender Males who want to compete as women without any biological changes. Just a few items the mainstream media is skipping over. Also Mike Lindell's video Absolute Proof, was shown to over 5 million viewers, regarding the 2020 election, before the video was removed. Removing the video only called more attention to it, and now people are scrambling to view it. Good for you, Mr. Lindell.:)

    The Whigs split off to fight the Democrats (namely Jackson) however, they just ended up becoming Democrats lite.

    In Wisconsin on March 20, 1854, the Republican Party was founded.
    On November 6, 1860, with both the Democrats and Whigs, being seen for what they were replaced when the new Republicans took
    the presidency and 23 of the successive presidential elections versus the Democrat's 17 victories afterwards.

    I believe that today's Republicans are what the Whigs were in the 1850s.

    We need a new party.

    Governor Huckabee: I TOTALLY AGREE, we should not NOT vote, start a third Party or vote Democrat, but I can't help but think we are naive if we think we can really win back seats in the mid-terms or at the next presidential election if we don't stand up for the proven FRAUD now and rectify it. https://rumble.com/vdlomr-unveiled-the-2020-election.html; also, Italy-did-it.com. If they get away with this one, they won't stop.

    02/07/2021 10:13 PM

    Governor, you are SO RIGHT about the negative effect of the conservatives who are either hoping for a third party, or actually considering voting Democrat in the 2022 elections. Such people are behaving like pouting children. Such actions would do possibly irreparable harm to themselves and all that they have claimed to love and believe in. I moved to Thailand with my Thai wife when I retired in 2006. Now 77, I do not expect to return to America. But I have voted in every election; and will continue to do so for as long as I'm able, in the hope that I can contribute to the effort to keep the USA from becoming the SSA - Socialist States of America. I hope that all true Americans will choose to continue to fight to take back our country from the truly evil anti-Americans who have temporarily stolen it from us. Now is not the time to give up. It is the time to regroup and use our votes to fight more effectively in 2022 and beyond.

  • Anne Turner

    02/07/2021 09:43 PM

    Governor, you said it best with one short statement: if Democrats did not have double standards, they would have no standards at all. I do not understand how two leaders. Joe and Nancy, can talk about being strong snd faithful Catholics, but support late term abortions.

    Is anyone concerned about Covid coming across our Southern .border. I don’t think anyone is checking. What about those poor children that are going to be sold to brothels. What kind of people want to have sex with little children? May God forgive them, I cannot.

    I can understand the 3rd Party sentiment.

    For years we have been sending Republicans to Congress only to see them betray We The People, what we termed RINO's. They side with democrats against us on a regular basis.

    I need go no further than one Mitt Romney, but I am sure you get the point.

    Merely electing people with an (R) by their name is not getting us the Government we want and need.

    Something has to change.

    That said, however, I agree with you. Ever voting for any Dimm is a bridge too far.

    Many of your articles have links, in trying to connect, a few seconds into the sentence, I am automatically pushed into the WJ section and in order to read the important story, I can NOT unless I "subscribe" AT A PRICE or keep clicking "continue to site" EVERY 3 seconds, which is unacceptable. This CONSTANT interruption in order to read the link is frustrating, so I canNot continue reading the link and lose the gist of your newsletter. Why is this happening? I canNOT and WILL NOT pay a price for a subscription to continue with that WJ site. Taking advantage of followers for a PRICE is as bad as what these demonRATS are perpetuating on America. Your newsletter reports both sides of an action and helps me understand the shenanigans of our "new normal" life, but not when it will cost me a price that is not budgetary item I can not afford.

    Hi Mike!

    With so many people in this country backing the policies of the Trump administration, why are there Republicans who oppose it? Why can't they see that that is what the country wants?

    p.s. The same was true with the Reagan administration policies.
