Digging Deeper

By Mike Huckabee

Just when you think CNN can’t get any lower, they manage to scrape a little more dirt out of the bottom of their hole.

Obvious Question

By Mike Huckabee

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler was asked what should be an obvious question, if the media weren’t DNC lapdogs and everyone else too intimidated to say what they’re really thinking: does he think that maybe those Trump supporters who rioted in the Capitol thought they could get away with it because of his precedent of letting violent Antifa and BLM types riot, attack police and try to destroy a federal courthouse for months, as he defended the rioters and let them take over Portland while he criticized the federal officers?

Wheeler did not take kindly to someone daring to voice what so many of us were thinking. You probably won’t be surprised to learn that he rejects totally the idea that he has any responsibility for making rioters think that rioting works.

Plumbing The Twitter Sewer

By Mike Huckabee

Twitter banned President Trump for allegedly inciting violence, even though he made no calls for violence. They’ve also banned thousands of conservatives for saying things they interpreted as violent, even if they weren’t. But David Marcus at the New York Post put on a hazmat suit and dived into what’s still on Twitter and hasn’t been banned and removed. Here are some of the things he found.

Hashtags for “Kill Trump” and “Assassinate Trump” that go back months…several sites where Antifa organizes its violent rallies…A tweet from a leftwing Portland journalist identifying Antifa critic/reporter Andy Ngo during a riot (he’s been physically assaulted by Antifa, so that tweet endangered his life)…Tweets from Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei branding Israel a “fake Zionist regime” and calling for its death…a page called “Pigs In A Blanket, Fry Em Like Bacon” that promotes killing police officers…and tweets wishing for Trump supporters to die of COVID. I’m sure that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Aside from being vile, reprehensible calls for violence and death, what do all these Twitter tweets and pages have in common? Unlike Trump, none of them have been removed from Twitter.

Welcome News At The Supreme Court

By Mike Huckabee

While other issues have been dominating the headlines, the Supreme Court has quietly been making some welcome news. In a case involving privacy, free speech and freedom of association, the SCOTUS has agreed to hear an appeal by two conservative nonprofits of a 2015 case involving then-California Attorney General Kamala Harris.

Harris threatened the groups with hefty fines if they didn’t give their confidential IRS list of donors to her office, which has a history of leaking such information. They argue that in this atmosphere, that would expose their donors to threats and harassment, and that the state has no legitimate interest in demanding to know the donors of a nonprofit organization that has not been accused of doing anything illegal.

The most frightening thing about this: the person who launched the case is about to become Vice President, and the person who took it over from her is Biden’s pick to run the HHS and be in charge of all our health records.

The SCOTUS will also decide whether public universities can be held accountable for infringing students’ First Amendment free speech rights…

…and the SCOTUS has ordered Nevada’s Democrat Governor to respond to a lawsuit by a church that his restrictions on in-person worship violate their Constitutional rights.

Let’s hope that the Supreme Court will ensure that a little good news will occasionally be coming out of Washington over the next couple of years.

Twitter CEO Speaks Up

By Mike Huckabee

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tried to stop his stock price plummet by attempting to justify the banning of the President’s Twitter feed. But not many people were buying it, particularly when he said if anyone disagrees with Twitter’s policies, “they can simply go to another Internet service.” News flash: they tried going to Parler and Jack’s Big Tech cronies crushed it.

On that subject, though, there is still Gab.com, which has its own servers. It also now has Trump’s entire Twitter feed history, which it backed up and posted to Gab.

New Bans

By Mike Huckabee

Both YouTube

And Snapchat have now banned President Trump. The most shocking part of this story is the idea that Trump would even be on Snapchat. I’ve heard him called a lot of things, but never a 14-year-old girl.

NYT Tech Writer Has Doubts

By Mike Huckabee

Even the tech writer for the New York Times is slowly, haltingly, hesitantly beginning to wake up to the Orwellian nightmare of Big Tech flexing its power to crush free speech.

Of course, she bends over backwards to excuse and justify it…she surely knows she can’t voice her worries too strongly, or she’ll be “cancelled” by her own paper…or maybe the scary truth is only beginning to seep through the thick cocoon of leftist groupthink in which all Times writers dwell…but the fact that she admits at all to starting to feel a touch of the willies over the ruthless power of unaccountable Silicon Valley billionaires should tell you how bad it is. This is like the moment in “Jurassic Park” when the people notice ripples in their glass of water that are their first clue that a T-Rex is stomping toward them and about to devour everyone in its path.

"1984"

By Mike Huckabee

If Amazon’s crushing of Parler was just a ruse to sell copies of George Orwell’s novel “1984” on Amazon.com, it worked. You know, while I strongly recommend reading that book (especially now,) you can buy it at any local bookstore. You don’t have to give your money to Amazon.

Another Ban You May Not Have Heard About

By Mike Huckabee

Twitter banned a post from the website Not The Bee (which posts news so crazy, you’d think it was from the Babylon Bee, but it’s real) because they claimed it “incited violence.” It was a screenshot of Twitter’s trending topic, “#Hang Mike Pence,” which they’ve allowed to be posted so many times, it’s…a trending topic! So by their own admission, Twitter is inciting violence.

Maybe Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey should go ban himself.

    I don't know what I'd do without your newsletter. You have a great conservative mind & you lay out the news which we'll never hear from far left media. I'm sick & saddened to all we are about to lose with the Biden admin. I'm totally disgusted with all this cancel culture, especially what they're doing to President Trump. All media outlets, tech companies, independent companies, & now I've read he might be a flight risk. Then Harvard attacking Sen. Cruz & others. Listening a little to Biden about COVID & all the deaths that are mounting from this virus makes me very upset. He's made this speech before & I feel it's very dark & doesn't make me feel any better. I do have an empty seat for the last 4 months, but he didn't pass from COVID. Pray to Our Lord & also pray to St. Michael The Archangel. Too much evil in our country & around the world. Amen.

    I am curious to know why those republicans sided with the democrats on the impeachment vote. Are they being threatened, paid off or just plain stupid. If the Republicans don't stand firm the party will vanish. I feel like we the people don't matter anymore. The government is run by self-serving people and the hate that so many have now. I cast my vote and pray about it, that if this is not God's plan for our country so be it. This could be the beginning of the end for America. I love your show and rely on your newsletter for the real news.

    To Destroy Big Tech:
    o Lose stock value, massive sell off?
    o Raise fines.
    o Join International group to fight Big Tech
    o IRS raids
    o Seize assets
    o Lawsuits X1000,000.
    o Class action suit
    Imagine Twitter & Facebook stock worth .30 cents.

    Lockdowns did they work or is it a trial run for CCP to see if America would obey the command. Prisons, Nursing Homes how was the effectiveness against the China Virus with inmates stuck together did Seniors in Assisted living and the Homes keep them from the China Virus NO i dont think so the highest percentage of death in those lockdown facilities prove lockdowns are a farce. Did anyone follow the science Cuomo in NY followed his own science and basically sent the elderly to a dirt bath put vulnerable people to a hasten death trap locked up not much is said about it is there. Idiotic impeachment is the word of the month by propaganda outlets and some outlets can't communicate at all. Does any of this look like CCP influence??? If I was a member of the CCP I would never want a Man like Trump in charge again and the idea is working Americans have fallen in the trap of the CCP by electing a cream puff like Biden and Harris. Although History will say the CCP elected them. This is not sour grapes this is arsenic to this country.

    Couple of things: I don't expect Twitter to get better or to be forced to be better, and same for all the other "platforms" (I think of "grenade launchers" when I hear that word), as long as the Dems have control. Furthermore I have seen no indication that there is any great will among our GOP reps and senators to change things. The minute somebody gets critical of them they collapse like an unused accordian. So "The Silencing" becomes one more thing dividing us irrevocably, and it is to be followed by "The Great Purge." As the Chinese, the spiritual and financial owners of our incoming Junta, said: let a thousand flowers bloom! And when they did, and all the voices began to speak again, they dead-headed the flowers that had bloomed. Second, the Supreme Court turned its back on us silenced voters by steadfastly ignoring the evidence and rejecting any chance to get that evidence examined. The Chief Justice apparently adheres to the school of jurisprudence that says, "one for you and one for you." I have lost so much respect for that institution, that now its just another one such down the drains of fear and cowardice and treachery, along with the FBI. And one last thing: you mention 1984 (I was in Leningrad as a new political officer at the Consulate on NY Eve 1983, and somewhere I have a photo of the screen shot at midnight: 1984! in white on a black background. No kidding.) I have another suggestion that is equally apt: The Master and Margarita by Bulgakov. It was written during the Soviet Great Purges in the 1930s. Bulgakov loathed the communists and what had happened to Russia. So he wrote the world's greatest satire, and you can get an annotated version that will show how he used his books to indicate who he was talking about. Giving a house the street number of the KGB in Moscow. Even our US Ambassador shows up, wining and dining all the corrupt. The tale is that of the devil arriving in Moscow, along with his minions, and then setting off chaos. If you haven't read it, do. Best regards, Norma Brown, retired US FSO

    Governor, you missed this: A counter protest was announced on 1/1/21 and 1/2/21 via Twitter and Facebook saying: “We need numbers to show up No Fascist In DC – March Against Fascism spread the word Comrades!”

    Please also check https://twitter.com/realjaydenx which is still active!

    In the meantime BLM activist John Earle Sullivan (founder of a group called Insurgence USA) has been arrested and charged in connection with last week’s Capitol incursion (https://www.justice.gov/opa/page/file/1354781/download).

    I know that I am a nobody and in your universe completely insignificant. I am not highly educated and do not have a degree. I used to watch your videos of your shows on youtube and can't anymore. I simply asked the question where I might see your full TV Show each week and I have had no response. I figured at least someone on your staff could at least have the dignity to give me a response, even if it was to go away. Please don't ask me to donate to HUck-Pac anymore as it seems to have not done any good; I mean look at the mess we are in. I work extremely hard for my money and need every penny, but I donated every penny I could because I love my country and did not trust other people asking for money. I am sad and distressed for my country, and where Christianity is going.

    Mike, I'm calling you out on you morning edition that called the presidents comments "irresponsible." After listening to the audio on Sean Hannity, I find nothing in his talk that would even remotely border on irresponsible. So Mike, my question for you, is what exactly do you base your comment on? Show me the quote that you find irresponsible. I have always trusted your comments as truthful, but now have concerns on your choice of words. Has the left gotten to you and influenced your decision making? I know you will not post this on your website, so between you and I, what gives Mike? If I don't receive an answer, I will delete your email from my list.

    Thank you Governor,
    I wish I had a chance to edit my posts because phat phingers are problematic at 76.

    I just signed up at CloutHub. I am on Gab as well. I find the former more political. I think Parler could move to a PaaS in Nebraska and not worry. Parler could not reasonably use its own servers. An optimistic estimate would be 6 months for that transition.

    I must go to the ROOT of all this EVIL. it started in about 1914 when Academia embraced the writing of Marx & Engles Communist Manifesto. Like a burst dam, the water rushes to cover recently arid land, and with no place to runoff waiting for evaporation to clean up the mess. Even Elementary Schools are now 1619 Project, Common Core INFECTED. That was the Flood!
    What this means is one item of the things necessary to destroy the capitalist system and replace it with a share the wealth ideology. When the Youth are taught that Capitalism=Bad, Communism=Good. MIS-Educated is worse than Indoctrinated. Today's anarchists look for every wart society has while Ignoring the benefits of a FREE People's enterprise. Ignoring the Progress made from Slavery to Sweatshops. It has taken time but We the People (Once Upon a Time) had a voice and by legislation have made life in America the ENVY of the World. Name another nation people Die to enter? Most Die trying to FLEE. Name another Nation in the World that has a HYPHENATED Society! The current turn of events where three Mega Billionaire Oligarchs can CONTROL SPEECH and go unchecked signals the END of this Republic. The recent breach of the Government by a Mob is detestable, BUT not unexpected. READ some history! less than 2% of the colonists participated in the Boston Tea Party but the Torch of Liberty was Lit. If Congress continues to act like a Monarchy I predict the opening round has been fired. Directed by, Now we know, Paid Agitators, and IF our ability to depend upon having HONEST elections with ZERO ILLEGAL votes is NOT corrected Immediately Portland, Seattle, Baltimore, etc. will look like a walk in the park.
    I have SEEN War and it's HELL. 98% of all Americans have NEVER seen anything but the Mall and Ball Games for the last 75 years. When we abandoned History and Civics we Invited what we are seeing. The OLIGARCHS CONTROLLING SPEECH has never seen anything but Academia! Should give thinking people a heads up.

    Definition of hypocrisy: the Democratic Party and associates such as Twitter, Amazon, NYT, WAPO, CNN, MSNBC, CBC, NBC, ABC ! j Biden, Kamala Harris, c. Schumer. AOC, pencil neck, N Pelosi, etc., etc, most universities and most professors, therein. Not only are these people hypocrites, they are also vile mouthed, liars, ignorant, arrogant, egotistical, self serving. I probably forgot a few.
    They are not nice people. They are not good people. I do not know why Biden and Pelosi have not been excommunicated from the Catholic Church. I alway thought sanctity of life was one of their big things. So much for moral values.

    Interesting and heartening that 1984 is back in vogue. I have a t-shirt that says, "Make Orwell Fiction Again." Sadly, most people who have commented on it don't know what it means. (Teachable moment!) Evidently, it is no longer on recommended or suggested reading lists for high schoolers.

    As a result, I decided to start my own "1984 Project." I purchased a few copies of the book (from Amazon, of course), which have just arrived. The plan is to give a copy to anyone willing to read the book. The caviat is that when the person has finished the book, it must be passed along to someone else or returned to me. I'm also encouraging others to join me in the 1984 Project by doing the same. When I run out of copies, I'll order some more and continue. (In case you missed it, PragerU Bookclub also did a good segment on the book.) Now if we could just get folks to read Animal Farm and Atlas Shrugged...

    I am so proud to say I never twitted a tweet. Jack Dorsey that rich burnout I would like to see his twitter struggle for a long time along with the his pals FB CNN NYT I think Donal should lay low so they don't have anything to whine about. Let Biden mumble something all I will be able is shake my head the corrupt bastard is very wealthy however he now trapped by a nation that despises him and the number will grow. 80 million ghost zombies and dead people will watch in horror wondering how they voted for him the dead people may have family left behind to watch America turn into a cesspool just like the Leftist cities and states. Americans do not fall for any apologies from these Leftist Corporations start to falter find alternate sources to do business with my citi card is going into the back of my wallet till Discover card does something stupid I will watch which company is falling in line with the CCP and avoid them.
