Idiocy

By Mike Huckabee

Behold the tragic consequences of the authoritarian idiocy of the man Joe Biden reportedly wants to make the US Attorney General.

Key point: Newly-released data in New York (released by Gov. Andrew Cuomo!) finds that restaurants are responsible for only 1.4% of the COVID-19 infection spread, while households are responsible for 74%. So Cuomo wants to destroy businesses and throw thousands of people out of work by shutting down restaurants and making everyone stay at home.

That is box-of-rocks dumb. That's almost as stupid as believing that the virus spreads at church services, but not at anti-police protests or liquor stores.

Reporting the news again

By Mike Huckabee

So, now that the election is over, and “journalists” are trying to reclaim a little of their credibility from down the toilet, the media will allow us to know that a COVID-19 vaccine was developed in record time thanks to a program created by Trump, that unprecedented peace agreements are being signed in the Middle East, that the Trump economy and tax cuts did benefit the poor and middle class, and that the Hunter Biden laptop scandal was real (latest: NBC actually reported that a 2017 email from his business partner informed Biden that he failed to disclose $400,000 in income from the Ukrainian energy company Burisma on his taxes.)

And as long as the truth is finally allowed to come out, oh yeah: after years of adamant denials, turns out the FBI did have thousands of documents related to the slain DNC staffer Seth Rich. Also, his laptop.

What are we going to learn next? That space aliens and the “Galactic Federation” are real?

Okay, I’m not vouching for that last story. But I will say this: if space aliens had landed and endorsed Trump, the media definitely would have kept it top secret.

RIP David L. Lander

By “Huckabee” pop culture guru Pat Reeder 

It’s been an incredibly packed news week, but I don’t want to let it pass without paying tribute to comic actor David L. Lander, who died on Dec. 4th at 73 of complications from a 37-year battle with multiple sclerosis.

Lander became a TV Land immortal for his portrayal of squeaky-voiced Squiggy (full name “Andrew Squigman”) to Michael McKean’s Lenny on “Laverne & Shirley.” Lenny & Squiggy, the two hilariously bizarre greasers who lived upstairs, became breakout stars. Cindy Williams said they were so funny, she and Penny Marshall would have to bite their lips to keep from laughing at their ad-libs and ruining takes.

Shortly after “L&S” ended its eight-year run in 1983, Lander was diagnosed with MS. He continued working as long as he could, and finally went public with his struggle in 1997. He became a tireless advocate for MS awareness, working with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. When he could no longer act on camera, he turned to cartoon voice work. Cartoon writer/director Mark Evanier recalled how great he was at it, but how he apologized for having to do four or five takes. Evanier said there are many voice actors who need six or seven takes, and they’re not struggling with MS.

Before their “Laverne & Shirley” fame, Lander and McKean were teamed with Harry Shearer (“The Simpsons’”) and Richard Beebe in a comedy troupe called “The Credibility Gap.” Their album “A Great Gift Idea” is still hilarious.

In 1979, Lander and McKean released “Lenny and Squiggy Present Lenny and the Squigtones,” a live LP of their hilarious but catchy parodies of late ‘50s/early ‘60s rock tunes. The guitarist is “Nigel Tufnel,” the first appearance of Christopher Guest as the character he would play in “This is Spinal Tap” with McKean and Shearer. It’s one of our Hollywood Hi-Fi Hall of Fame Great Albums in our book about celebrity records.

If you’d like to know more about it, listen to it in its entirety and see the band (with Tufnel/Guest on guitar) in a rare clip from “American Bandstand,” check out this post at our Facebook page.

Our prayers for David Lander's family and our thanks for the countless hilarious moments over the past five decades that we’re sure new audiences will continue to enjoy for many more decades.

Supreme Court update

By Mike Huckabee

This link has some more information and comments on the Supreme Court’s rejection of the lawsuit by Texas and many more states, challenging the illegal voting procedures in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Georgia.

It includes some interesting comments from constitutional scholar Mark Levin, who warns that by ducking its responsibility, the Court may have sealed its doom. If Republicans are too angry or discouraged over the lack of integrity in the voting system or fairness in the political/judicial system, they might sit out the Georgia Senate runoffs. That would hand the Senate to Democrats, and Chuck Schumer has been clear that if he took control, he would stack the Court, adding extra Justices who are partisan activists. That would turn the SCOTUS into just another political organization and destroy its role as an independent third branch of government.

I agree that would be horrible. I don’t even want to think about a SCOTUS that routinely makes even worse rulings than some of the ones it’s handed down in recent years in defiance of the Constitution and the will of the people.

But I would argue that there is one way to prevent that, and that’s for Republican voters in Georgia not to get discouraged and give up, but to get angry, get motivated and get cracking. They need to rally everyone they can to vote Republican in the runoffs, in numbers beyond the margin of fraud. They also need to demand of their legislators, Governor and other officials that they act RIGHT NOW to prevent the kind of shady voting procedures we just saw from being repeated in January. They need to volunteer as poll watchers, refuse to let people intimidate them into leaving, and if anyone tries, get their faces and name tags on cell phone cameras. It’s called “evidence,” and now we know we may need it.

    I agree with your comments about Georgia poll watchers. They should take the approach "fool me once, shame on you. fool me twice, shame on me." They need to closely watch every ballot and every machine 24/7, from the time the first vote is cast, until the results are certified and the winners take office. Also, photograph any drivers showing up in the middle of the night with truckloads of ballots. And verify signatures.

    Please correct me if I am wrong...I do not feel those that got "damaged", killed in my family, and millions of other families, and including myself personally fought in wars and political conflicts to see what a sorry and totally moral bursting state of affairs our once decent nation/ home was, and what a sad miserable nation it has become today. Millions of people my age, younger and older fought long and hard to keep the homefront safe...but it is being destroyed from within and a "house divided can not and will not stand." Do WE THE PEOPLE need to counter-attack our own homeland to bring it back around to where it once stood proud, free, brave and right in its might. The Constitution or not it is now no-one has any integrity and no one's word or oath is worth the hot air CO2 pollution that it takes to spew such deception...Give me cow farts any day overt these lying deceitful people in office. At least the cow farts serve a useful purpose.

    Please help me understand how a Governor and a Secretary of State (of Georgia) can trade away a states rights to a clean election (which they do not own or have title to) to settle a slew of frivolous lawsuits by consent decree. This amounts to paying bribery, which is never a good idea. It never solves anything and causes more problems.

    It is with regret the Native American want its culture canceled by having what used to be a celebration of its history. I am proud to have studied some native american struggles as I struggle with losing being a capitalist to having to live in a socialist setting. I believe to have your identity erased from from your past is a mistake just as losing being a capitalists will be a mistake they say all good things must end we are in the Autumn of American history with the announcement Biden made probably the only thing he has said that may not be a lie we will a nation of the dark winter.

    Not "may' need evidence, but 'will' need evidence. There just HAS to be something "they" have overlooked or forgotten about that will satisfy these judges to see the truth.

    I was looking at all these cases the courts are dismissing and they are dismissing them for procedural errors, or they think it should have gone to a lower court first, etc. None of them have been dismissed on the evidence itself. The election was stolen. It makes me sad to see the level that this country has sunken to. I hate to add to it but the real elephant in the room is quantitative easing that the fed is doing at an unsustainable scale. The choice now is either hard times now or money that is worthless later. The Democrats just handing out money to everyone, well that is unsustainable too.

    Coumo is not going to have the time to be Attorney General under the Sleepy Joe Biden-Kalama Administration. The State Treasurer is going to tell him and his fellow Democrats in the New York Legislature "WE ARE BANKRUPT AND WE WILL HAVE TO TURN OFF THE LIGHTS HERE AND IN THE MANSION ALONG WITH THAT WE ARE HAVE A BANKRUPT UNEMPLOYMENT FUNDS. HERE IS YOUR LITTLE BELL AND HERE IS YOUR LITTLE KETTLE NOW GET OUT THERE RAISE TYHE MONEY SO I CAN PAY FOR THE LAST SIX MONTHS UNPAID LIGHT BILLS STATEWIDE.

    If state of GA officials continue the Stacy Abrams consent degree that eliminates checking names on ballots with voter roles, republicans will lose the two Senate seats being voted. It is idiocy to believe the same republican losing strategy of a landslide vote and the same consent degree procedures in the Nov. 3rd presidential election will give the republicans a win in the Jan. 5th Senator elections. Something must be done NOW to invalidate the Stacy Abrams consent degree.

    I doubt very much that the SCOTUS is unaware of the intent of the Democrats to stack the U.S. Supreme Court and weaponize the court for political purposes which is one of the reasons for the voter fraud which affects all 50 states and every single American Citizen. This is about minority tyranny which our founders were worried about in the nature of man. George Washington gave America only 10 years not because of defect of the Declaration of Independence or the United States Constitution, but the nature of man in quest for power and control. George Washington's prophecy seems to be a little late, but true none the less. I blame the U.S. Supreme Court the most as they are the supposed to be the bulwark for the Constitution. Apparently their taking an oath meant nothing to them except two lone Justices. I find The Justice's behavior Shocking, absolutely shocking!

    Why is there no closure on things reported with great ballyhoo only to have zero consequences? I refer specifically to Ihlan Omar and AOC' theft and graft of campaign funds in the 100's of thousands of dollars. Easier Than robbing banks and more lucrative. When did it become OK to marry your brother to circumvent citizenship rules? How is it OK that the Marxist lady organizers of BLM can collect millions to fund an anarchist organization and line their pockets at the same time? We must be nuts!!

    I can't get to excited much anymore about Government agencies look at what we have now corrupt self serving AG's, Judges, Mayors , Governors If Cuomo become AG whats the difference with what we have now. Secretary of State Pompano is what we have left that carries American value that I can see. Comey Wray whats the difference? Biden will bring back what Obama tells him to bring back all these people knew the fix was in for at least 8 months can't fight it. Professional sports people say the ratings are down less people watching even when people are stuck at home. Come spring maybe Baseball will be open for fans to come to the parks I loved going to the Parks however going I stopped 2 years ago Urban unrest The last time I went it appeared to be unsafe gangs of 8 beat up a person ran him over with a bike and robbed him. Not a policeman to be found at a Venue that attracted 25000 people. Cost of going to the park a ticket $ 25 Parking $15 concessions $35 hospital bill $ 3500; today all this will happen if opened to the public and you can have your carjacked or stripped or spray painted if U are in your car police say just them your valuables call a cab and hope you have cab fare for your ride home. police have been defunded Sports owners supported BLM and Antfia not in hurry to support those business I will not attend if it were free. Billionaire owners can pound sand and players can continue to support BLM I am sure your contracts will get bigger. It has done so well for the communities. Dumb Asses.

    2 points I hope people do and realize.
    1) All legal citizens of Georgia need to vote. Lost control of the House in 2018 because turnout was low
    2) I see the Deep State likely has members in the SCOTUS. It acted more like Marxist judges.
    If the Democrats get the state we will see the 4th Reich being initiated
    Now only God can save us. The false shepherds are a big part of the problem
    I expect the Left to act like flesh eating Morlocks from the Time Machine!

    Governor Huckabee,
    It seems now that illegal voting practices have a precedent for the future. It makes me wonder if we will ever have another Republican president. also if Mr Biden allows this latest caravan coming up through Mexico to enter the United States, there will be so many more Democrat voters. With regard to the FBI, I think it ought to be disbanded and recreated. Start with a director who was honest and trustworthy and hire all of these wonderful policemen and women who have been forced out of work. Thank you for keeping us sane throughout the buildup to the election and the post-election. All I can say is I'm so glad God is still on his throne.
