MORNING EDITION

August 2, 2020 

By Mike Huckabee

"HUCKABEE" PREVIEW

Join me tonight for a jam-packed new episode of “Huckabee” on TBN! Rep. Ken Buck will tell us about the fight to end slave labor in China (and the American companies profiting from it.) Former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone is finally free to tell us his side of his legal battle. Comedian and free speech warrior Adam Carolla will tell us about his new book that’s guaranteed to have the Twitter mobs "literally shaking!" I’ll have serious commentary and some crazy news “In Case You Missed It.” And we’ll top it off with Johnny Bravo himself. Okay, maybe you know him better as Greg Brady. Or in reality, actor/singer Barry Williams from the classic sitcom, “The Brady Bunch,” with his cool musical group, the Traveliers.

We get rolling tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, and the same times on Sunday, only on TBN.

A 1912 TEST

As long as we’re debating whether to reopen public schools, now might be a good time to ask whether we’re getting our money’s worth for all those hundreds of billions of dollars we spend on them. Here’s a test given to 8th graders in 1912. Who do you think would be most likely to pass it today: a public school student or a home-schooled student?

PS - If you attended school in the modern age, here are the answers

COMMENT OF THE DAY

From Dinesh D’Souza, who perfectly captured the spirit of what Obama is doing with his remarks at John Lewis’ funeral and elsewhere: “He stokes the very fires that he pretends to be extinguishing.”

RESHAPING BIOLOGICAL REALITY

I’m not sure who would be more interested in this story, George Orwell or George Carlin. But the latest PC attempt to reshape biological reality through the use of language comes to us courtesy of CNN.

Friday, the American Cancer Society issued new guidelines for cervical cancer screenings. And who should get those? Well, we can’t say “women!” That might offend somebody. So CNN advised that “Individuals with a cervix are now recommended to start cervical cancers screening at 25 and continue through age 65, with HPV testing every five years as the preferred method…” "Individuals with a cervix"?

CNN, don't you know it's outrageously offensive to women who have male genitalia but identify as having a cervix to suggest that they shouldn’t be getting regular cancer screenings for the cervixes they don’t actually have?

TRACKING HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE

Social media sites are shutting down anyone (even doctors with extensive experience treating COVID-19) who suggests that Hydroxychloroquine might be effective and accusing them of spreading dangerous misinformation. But here’s a story about a website that’s tracking all the international studies of HCL currently underway. There are over 70 studies. So far, 51 have shown positive results and 16 negative results, but of the latter, 10 involved late-stage cases.

I know that liberal media outlets reject anything from the Gateway Pundit out of hand, calling it just a rightwing blog. So here’s the website they’re talking about, where you can look at the studies and their charted results yourself.

Also, note the chart comparing nations that started using HCL very early on to those that did not. You’ll find all the HCL-using nations bunched together, down on the low end of the deaths per million scale.

TWO COURT WINS FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP

President Trump scored two wins in court Friday. The major decision came in a 5-4 Supreme Court ruling rejecting a request by a number of groups, including the Sierra Club and the ACLU, to block construction of the border wall on environmental grounds. This is the second such rejection, but his opponents are still fighting what they call the “xenophobic wall” in lower courts. Still, it’s good to hear that the ACLU is now so concerned about defending the right of armadillos to roam freely across the border.

On the personal level, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court ruling that tossed out a libel lawsuit against Trump by adult film star Stormy Daniels, who claimed they had a consensual affair. She sued over a Trump tweet. He retweeted a tweet comparing her sketch of a man whom she claims intimidated her in a casino parking lot to a very similar photo of her ex-husband. Trump commented, “A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!”

Daniels claimed this damaged her reputation by painting her as a liar and criminal, rather than as a reputable porn star. But the Court ruled that Trump was just stating a personal opinion about the similarity of the two photos, and that “con job” was only “a colorful expression of rhetorical hyperbole.”

Trump recently admitted that he regrets some of his tweets. I assume this is one of them, although I could probably think of a few others that I wish he’d rethought before pressing “Send.”

    It is okay to call the Southern border fence, "The Trump Mural," since the Merrium-Webster's first entry defines mural simply as "of, relating to, or resembling a wall."

    And what a BEAUTIFUL mural it is!

    You have to add zinc to Hydroxychloroquine. Been around for over 60 years. Who has stock in another company?

    Governor:
    Why has not a single democrat, including faux Catholic Biden and Pelosi condemned the Bible burning in Portland?

    I think it is time that real clergy of ALL Christian faiths start directly condemning the baby killing, and now BIBLE burning the democrats clearly support.

    The silence of most main stream clergy, especially in the black community is deafening.

    The reference by CNN as individuals with a cervix should get annual cancer screenings instead of using the word "women" is greatly erroneous in the medical fact that women who have had complete hysterectomies due to cervical cancer are medically advised by physicians AND insurance companies to continue getting these annual screenings for a possible cancer recurrence. I'd hate to think someone may think it's no longer necessary due to this fake reporting. CNN has thrown the baby out with the bathwater and doesn't even know its missing. And by the way, I am a post hysterectomy patient and am offended I am not now considered a woman by CNN standards. What a crock!

    I suspect a number of people would say "I wonder how many members of congress and the Senate could pass this test."

    Mike, or website staff--

    You need to fix your show synopsis/previews and/or fix TBN schedule. I've been meaning to report this for weeks, but keep forgetting. The show is on TBN Saturday at 7 and 10 Central, but Sunday, it is no longer at "the same times". It is ONLY ONE showing on Sunday at 8pm Central now, and has been for many weeks. Can you please check it out and maybe mention this in a future newsletter? What's up with that?

    Hi Governor!
    I hope you're having a blessed Sunday.

    That test from 1912 was one that reminded me of tests from my youth. They were always confusing because there were so many variable that could affect the answers. Depending on the author of the test, I could never know if there were some hidden, unmentioned elements that I was supposed to have known from earlier.

    For instance in the arithmetic question 4 - A man bought a farm for $2400 and sold it for $2700. What percent did he gain? Well - are we supposed to account for the cost of any improvements? I first started having trouble with these loosely bound tests while I was still VERY young. It wasn't until I was in college that test authors actually started using better tests.

    Many people might say I was being too critical, but isn't critical thinking supposed to be one of the things we learned? As well, I actually DID have some teachers that added surprises to their tests with 'facts' from one question being applied to questions in different sections.

    My mother stated a country school at the age of 6, I think she said, not knowing how to speak English and her parents never learned English. Her father said she didn't need to go to high school because all she was going to do was get married and have babies. She was the oldest and born in 1915. She left the farm at 18, worked for a family for about a year and a half, learning all the 'niceties' before getting a job at a State Hospital. She did marry and have 4 'babies,' and helped her younger sisters graduate from high school having learned more in elementary than most learn in schools today. She still could remember all the names of the presidents, likely into her 60's because memorization was taught back then too. My father (born in 1904) only went through 8th grade and memorized the dictionary as the only book in their home to read and he was a life long reader. Unfortunately, my parents were divorced when I was 16, but I did graduate college and am a life long learner as well. By the way, my parents were Republicans all their lives. My own education in about 10 schools both public and Catholic was excellent but due to my parents who demanded good grades. My work in the public schools and with my children's education, have shown that money doesn't improve quality and there are far too many excuses for students not excelling. When I see graduations of top students these days, 99% + of the times, they come from 2 parent families. Food for thought.

    In regards to our Presidents' tweets:
    He is just a man. You know, human. I would like to ask these people who object to his tweets, it they were being constantly abused in the media, CONSTANTLY, would they be able to hold their tongues under such attacks????
    Imagine for a moment it were happening to you. The lies, betrayals, back-stabbing... all while you aren't even being paid!
    I say, GOD bless him and his family! I personally applaud his restraint from not exploding!!!!
    Maybe, just maybe, if people would stop saying they regret his "unPresidential" tweets and see them for what they are, a way to vent... then maybe he wouldn't feel like he is in the fight alone...
    Just a thought.

    Sincerely,
    Joan

    Last week, I made an off-handed comment on FB about since the Chinese are stealing so much of our properties, they must be stupid. Well.....I got chastised by the snowflakes at FB, and told they would be taking down the comment, and that I would be “monitored”. REALLY?! I have seen MUCH worse written by users that is left up for all to see! Now why would my comment about stupidity be soooo offensive?!
