It’s hard even to know where to start in addressing the atrocity that happened last week and the growing exploitation of it by the left. I’ve made my position clear on the use of violence, whether it comes from the left, as it usually does, or the right, as it did this time. It’s all bad, and we have condemned it totally, unlike those on the left who have selectively excused it in the fulfillment of their ideology.

First, I’d recommend you watch the monologue from Mark Levin on Sunday’s LIFE, LIBERTY & LEVIN. It treads some of the same ground we’ve gone over in the past several days, including much of what the left has been doing to change the culture and normalize violence from their side, but Levin expresses it very well.

As he reminds us, the media dismissed it when people who attended a Trump event were assaulted during their long walk from the White House grounds to their transportation home. Sen. Rand Paul, to name one, was attacked. (He’s actually been attacked twice, if you count the one earlier at his home.) There was also the rioting in Lafayette Park in which historic monuments were defaced and toppled and scores of Secret Service agents were injured. When Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked about the horrendous vandalism by unhinged leftists, she said that “people will do what they do.”


She and her cohorts casually dismissed an ATTACK ON WASHINGTON, but the media let it go. They were saving their venom for their preferred target, and last Wednesday they finally got their chance to bite.

We’ve showed over and over how the media ignored violence from the left. If you weren’t watching a conservative-leaning site, you didn’t see it, because most news outlets didn’t cover it. This went on for months as entire city blocks were occupied, looted and burned. Reporters defended the destruction and called it "largely peaceful." Then-candidate Joe Biden wouldn’t speak out against it; neither would then-running mate Kamala Harris. Only much later, when polls showed public sentiment turning against them, did Democrats say anything about it, and even then their comments were perfunctory. Meanwhile, the Democrat-controlled media had for years been mocking Trump supporters as an inferior species and condemning them as “neo-Nazis.” Actually it WAS the Nazis who spoke of other people such as Jews as “sub-human, rats, and vermin.” I find no instance of Trump supporters speaking of the opposition as “inferior people,” just people with inferior ideas.

"The media have played a huge, huge role in what’s going on in this country,” Levin said, “and they’re exploiting now what took place on Capitol Hill, trying to silence conservatives, silence Republicans, and, unfortunately, a lot of Republicans are buckling.” Democrats know good and well that we didn’t want this to happen and that we reject it totally. If anyone wanted it to happen, it’s likely the people who benefited from it; namely, the very ones on the left who are exploiting it now.

As Levin said, the headline in THE NEW YORK TIMES last Thursday was TRUMP INCITES MOB. Trump used some pretty strong language, and we are on record as having disagreed with that, but he absolutely did not act to “incite” the mob. (“Incite” is a specific legal term; I’ll get to that below.) If you don’t think the NYT folks were gleefully happy to print that headline, you are living in an alternate universe. They welcomed this story with open arms and will enjoy exploiting it in the weeks, months and years to come.

As Tammy Bruce said this weekend in an interview with Steve Hilton, the left are acting swiftly before more information can come out about what really might have happened last Wednesday, more reports on who might have showed up there specifically to initiate violence. Bruce calls them “parasitic opportunists.”

"It is not a representation of what Trump has stood for,” she said.


But the WASHINGTON POST headline was almost identical: TRUMP MOB STORMS CAPITOL. The DAILY NEWS headline was this: PREZ INCITES INSURRECTION. Again, he did not. USA TODAY put it similarly: PRO-TRUMP MOBS STORM US CAPITOL. These headlines were chosen quite deliberately to suggest Trump called for violence.

Levin contrasted these headlines with some that were more objective. The NEW YORK POST put it this way: CAPITOL INVASION. The WASHINGTON TIMES called it an ASSAULT ON DEMOCRACY. Yes, that’s better. It still strongly condemns the violence but refrains from falsely implying that Trump was behind this. It was the last thing he wanted.

On what the Democrats are doing now, Levin nailed it. “Out of one side of their mouth, they talk about unity,” he said. “Out of the other side of their mouth, they spit on people.”

Since they have only a slight majority in the House and Senate (where Kamala Harris will have to break the ties), they want to use what happened to ratchet up their extreme calls for expanding the Supreme Court to create a partisan rubber-stamp, ending the Electoral College system, adding four more Democrat states to cement power in the Senate, and completely eliminating the filibuster. To obtain these things, Democrat politicians, with coordinated help from the megalomaniacs who run social media, plan to use the Capitol Hill incident instead of the mandate from the electorate that they'd expected but DID NOT GET.

In the short term, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is using this little window of time by insisting the 25th Amendment is in play, as an alternative to the impeachment she says she’ll put forward --- nine days from Biden’s inauguration. Ah, yes, Democrats are all about healing and unity.

Here’s what legal expert Jonathan Turley had to say about the legal merits of impeaching Trump now. What Trump said certainly did not meet the standard of “inciting” violence. All this would do is further divide the nation and give one more big slap in the face to Trump supporters, which I assume is what Democrats want to do. They hope to fragment us --- that's also part of the coordinated attack on us by social media that we'll talk about --- but now is the time for us come together.

    Your newsletter is as close to the truth as we feel we get. Thank you for all you do and what you share. I look at the picture above and ask "Why are these people not being arrested?????" Law breakers who are not punished will continue. Just like in Oregon. Where is law and order?

    I would like to know WHEN is someone going to investigate who is really putting up the money that is funding the Democrats and their hate. We all know who it is, but evidently he is covered with Teflon just like the Clintons. He has been refused entry to several countries because of his dealings.
    When is America going to wake up.?

    With all going on with social media censorship csn anyone see the comparison of what Nazi Germany under Hitler did to books. Csn anyone see that the evil Marxist-Communist (formerly the Democrat party) is going full steam ahead against Trump supporters, Conservatives and Patriots - why wouldn't they- they have gotten away with so much since the Obama regime and clearly don't have to worry about consequences or the worthless irrelevant Republican party!! We as a nation are now reaping what has been sown. No one, but Trump and very few wanted to stand up against the evil Democrats. So RNC and Republicans will reap what they have sown as the spineless cowards and traitors they are. Many want to say that violence isn't the answer, but when a Civil War gets sparked there will be violence and it will be because no one but Patriots will fight against being RULED over by the Communist regime (former Democratic party) The Republicans failed We the People, the courts and justice system failed We the People and We the People just witnessed an election stolen and nothing was done about it as there are no consequences for election fraud and cheating much less anything else initiated by Dems and We the People know it. At least 75-80 million Trump supporters know it and will soon realize that we will only have a Republic if we can keep it and the opposition doesn't want us to have a Republic. So Patriots and true Americans will have to decide and never depend on politicians, or courts ever again!!

    I Think they should put all the Dems leftists in jail for treason. They have been living for years. This is why they fear Trump. They know he knows the Truth. They want to get rid of him so he can tell the the Truth. But God know the truth. No secret hidden. That don't come to light. The word doesn't like.

    I still support my president Donald Trump. I do not believe he incited anyone to riot in D.C. on the 6th and should not be impeached. When will he get his day in court to prove what we know was a stolen election?! Keep sending your great newsletter Gov. Huckabee!

    With everything big tech can censor, block, shut down, why don’t they do something about child pornography? That might just be important.

    Hello Now that they (Amazon) disconnected Parler; the free spirited citizens of the free world lost a platform to socialize and vent on that just might entice more hate as a result of this. Facebook and twitter are out of the question, so I heard that CloutHub could be an alternative. Are there any others? I thank you Mr. Hukabee for keeping us informed. Mr. Bill OReilly serves as a trustworthy source to get info also.

    I decry the outbursts of violence by the mass of people who were attending a rally to support
    President Trump. He did not advocate physical violence in any of his comments. Fighting with better ideas and free speech and with one's vote is the way I interpreted his remarks. Why can't
    emotionally charged people reel in their emotions, and realize how damaging such behavior is going to be. It will be turned on them and come back to bite them as it has in this instance. The last months of Antifa riots and looting and burning were appropriately criticized by the Republicans. Yet we turn around and in some respects, behave the same way, getting destructive, and have argumentative confrontations with law enforcement officers and overwhelm them. I can say I understand why Republicans have become "fighting mad": 1- (not a fair shake in the mainstream public media; 2- Dismissal of objections to a fraudulently held national election; 3. Being vilified as anti-American by even attempting to get to the bottom of the allegations. 4. Frustration with those authorities who would not approve a careful
    scrutiny and forensic examination of the Presidential election voting methods. I am a 75 yr. old Christian conservative, who knows we are not perfect human beings. I am a Viet Nam veteran and I am appreciative of President Trump getting our soldiers out of meaningless wars around the globe. I am grateful for his peace initiatives, and we are commanded to try and be "peace makers" .....and "to live peaceably with all men, as much as is possible." I am grateful for his stance against ridiculous immigration policies. When legal immigrants go through the effort to comply with the law (and I'm all for it), why should we even dare consider illegal immigrants? The entire platform of the Democratic Party is fraught with ideas that are all wrong. I see how young Americans get suckered into voting Democrat when their college debt is offered to be paid for by the federal government. I see why the Democrats want free and open borders. Where are the young Americans with common sense? This demographic group scares me for their tendency toward "socialistic policies". I blame our liberal colleges and universities for producing these mindsets among those of age 18-30. Whatever happened to the idea of an "honest day's wage for an honest day's work?" I won't even bother to go into the costly and morally pathetic abortion polices and practices that would escalate, along with the sad and pathetic agenda of the LGBT community. I know God's word tells us things will get better and worse at the same time, as the return of the Lord becomes imminent. All I can do is "...keep trusting in Him and keep my eyes toward the Eastern sky." When there is such division in our society, it can become depressing and disheartening, but the Lord reminds me that I must have hope and keep the faith. Governor Huckabee, you are one of the few sources of news reporting that I feel I can trust to give me an objective and honest analysis of what is going on around us.
    My wife and I thank you for your TV show, and also for your newsletter. God bless you, Sir, and please keep up the good work as God empowers you to do so.

    If they succeed in trying to impeach President Trump wouldn't that open the door for the truth to come out of how the Capitol was breached so easily?

    You are wrong when you say it was the Right that provoked the violence at the Capital last week. IT WAS ANTIFA!!!!! no doubt about it. Patriots are not into violence.

    I’m surprised the “Italian” security company that had their IT guy admitted to interfering with our voting system, has not been mentioned even if it is a rumor.

    I agree with your no violence policy, what so ever! The Leftists are exploiting the DC event to achieve support, through hatred against the Right. You cannot be nice to combat this type of evil in the Communist tactics situations, the Left are now employing, more than ever. To destroy through propaganda and by all means, any resistance and people who oppose their agenda is the Left's purpose. What is your solution of this grave situation that jeopardizes our Freedom and Nation?

    It's giving in to the "Cancel Culture", but maybe it's time for a new term for "FIGHT". It is standard rhetoric for political speech - "I will fight for your {insert political position}." Of course the politician really means "I will 'struggle or work hard in trying to beat or overcome someone or something; contend (Webster def 2)'; tirelessly, to make better proposals and vote against offensive proposals made by my opponent!". Some are politically, intentionally "misunderstanding", using "Fight" to mean "physical interaction to force a position" in these times against any conservative who uses the term.

    Hi Mike,
    I am in total agreement about the President did not incite a riot. The Democrats have refused to condemn any violence in the cities. I am tired of their double standards.. Joe Biden will never be my President. He is. Everything America doesn’t stand for. A liar, a thief and a disgrace.

    I subscribed- I felt I had no choice- every Conservative I have looked to has been banned from posting. Having come from a family that both fled and fought to stay alive in World War 2 the state of our Country scares me. Freedom seems to only apply to the people who want it "their" way. There is no middle ground, no basic freedoms even implied...only those that suit an agenda. It scares me to raise my family in a world where we hear people we thought of as friends saying things like, "All Conservatives should be cleansed!" I truly do not understand how they can have loved me and seen me accept them and all they believed in, watched my kids grow and helped me to celebrate them only to now add us into their cleansing comments as if we never meant anything to them. It disturbs me how they all want to go on about how one small group does not represent the masses on their side but won't see that it works the same way on all sides. Please do not allow yourself to be silenced- you are our voice and we need you to stand firm! Prayers for you and for your family! Stay strong and have faith!
