More about the vaccine

By Mike Huckabee

I know there’s a lot of concern about the safety of the new COVID-19 vaccine, and it didn’t help when a nurse who took it on live TV fainted 17 minutes later.

She’s fine now, and she explained that she’s a frequent fainter. She might have just been overwhelmed by nerves at being on live TV. Still, the doctors only made things worse by saying that fainting is a common reaction to vaccinations and they didn’t believe the vaccine had anything to do with it, leaving many people yelling at their TVs, “Make up your minds! Is it a common reaction to vaccination or unrelated?” Maybe they meant it was unrelated to the vaccine and she just faints at the sight of hypodermic needles, which I could totally understand.

The head of the FDA insists that no corners were cut in safety measures, and monitoring was actually stepped up, so the swift deployment was purely because of President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed clearing away bureaucratic red tape that normally keeps important medicines from being approved for years (say, why don’t we apply warp speed to them, too?) The vaccine is already being given out in large numbers, although President Trump isn’t pleased that they’re giving it to Congress members like Nancy Pelosi, when it was supposed to go to “essential workers” first.

There have been some reports of allergic reactions, including two serious cases in Alaska (all have recovered.)

Pfizer is looking at what ingredient might have caused the reactions, and they’re warning that people who have had allergic reactions to other vaccines or to any ingredients in the Pfizer or Moderna COVID vaccines should hold off on taking them for now.

Here’s an article from Popular Science about allergic reactions to vaccines. They’re rare, but they have happened with many other vaccines.

Doctors recommend that anyone with a history of anaphylactic allergic reactions remain near the doctor for 15 minutes or so after getting the shot in case they need treatment. If you’re going to have that kind of reaction, it will likely happen right away, not weeks in the future.

Nothing to see...

By Mike Huckabee

Are there any better ways to reassure Americans that there was nothing suspicious about the November election than to refuse to allow anyone to audit the records of the voting machines? Well, you could have the notoriously biased, conservative-smearing Southern Poverty Law Center join in fighting efforts to insure election integrity.

Or if that’s not suspicious enough, how about firing local poll workers who dared to blow the whistle when they saw suspicious activity?

Yep, that should do it! Nobody will think there’s anything to hide now!

Unarguable op-ed of the year

By Mike Huckabee

I nominate this piece by Jason Chaffetz for most unarguable op-ed of the year.

I’ve been making this same point for a long time: the disgusting and shameful treatment of our beautiful, stylish, kind, gracious and accomplished First Lady Melania Trump is a dark stain on a media that’s already covered itself in more mud than a passel of pigs. I’m not aware of one single women’s or fashion magazine that put her on its cover in four years, even as they were fawning over Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Stacey Abrams, Jill Biden and even Lena Dunham. The limousine leftist editors should be ashamed of themselves for acting like nasty, bullying mean girls, but they don’t have enough self-awareness to feel shame. Maybe someday, they’ll develop some.

In the meantime, I anxiously await the day when some smart Republican investor buys or starts a women’s magazine that is targeted to the tens of millions of women who don’t want a shovel full of snooty, elitist leftism with their fashion and lifestyle news. I hope the debut issue’s cover features Melania Trump, because that will shatter every sales record in history and, I hope, quickly put all competitors out of business.

Congressional Democrats take a hard pass on AOC

By Mike Huckabee

Wait, so you mean that being a freshman Congress member who openly defies the Speaker and brands her as a dinosaur who needs to get out of the way isn’t healthy for your career prospects? I know it’s a shocker, but Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t get the plum assignment she wanted on the Energy and Commerce Committee where she could shove her Green New Deal down Americans' throats.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi chose four of the five nominees and left the fifth up to the Democratic Steering Committee to choose between AOC and fellow New York Rep. Kathleen Rice. They picked Rice by a whopping 46-13 vote. I guess they also didn’t appreciate AOC pushing radical ideas like defunding the police that cost them seats in November or encouraging far-left candidates to challenge them in the primaries. She doesn’t need a committee assignment, she needs a copy of Dale Carnegie’s “How to Win Friends and Influence People.” (I’m only joking; I REALLY don’t want her to influence any more poor saps than she already has.)

Fantasyland

By Mike Huckabee

I’ve been writing for weeks about my theory that if Joe Biden becomes President, his worst enemy won’t be Republicans but reality. I’m glad to see that others are now picking up on that premise, such as this excellent article by Grady Means at The Hill.

Biden’s entire campaign was based on a fantasy, one that the Democrats’ handmaidens in the image-creating industries (big media, social media and Hollywood) sold to the public. They convinced a lot of people that Trump’s reign was a nightmarish dystopia that Democrats had to save them from.

In fact, before China unleashed its virus on the world (another fact covered up by media fantasies), Trump’s era was in many ways a golden age the likes of which we might never see again. For instance, Trump was tarred as a racist, even while he brought record low unemployment and rising wages for blacks, Hispanics and all other demographic groups.

Trump was painted as a war monger whose bumbling foreign policies made the world more dangerous. He actually boxed in Iran and cut off their funds for terrorists, making other Arab nations feel secure enough to sign unprecedented peace agreements with Israel. He also stopped North Korea from firing missiles over Japan, brought troops home, and was the first President since Jimmy Carter who didn’t send troops to a new conflict.

People were told that Trump ripped children from their parents’ arms at the border to put them in cages (actually, facilities and policy from the Obama era), that the Trump tax cut benefited only “the rich” (it helped 80% of taxpayers and added about $6000 to the average family’s household income), and that he didn’t care about climate change (the US reduced its carbon output significantly thanks to clean natural gas from fracking, a practice that also made the US energy independent, curtailed OPEC’s power over us and Russia’s influence over Europe, and dropped gas prices below $2 a gallon.)

As Mr. Means notes at the link, these are just a few of the many Trump successes that were falsely painted as disasters (he lists more), plus he achieved them largely by doing the opposite of everything Obama/Biden did. As President, Biden would finally be faced with either dealing with reality and continuing those policies that actually work, or return to policies that don’t work and bring back the stagnant economy, low job growth, mass illegal immigration and aggression by our enemies that marked the Obama years.

Americans lived through eight years of Obama/Biden, and even Trump admitted that they would never have taken the risk of sending him to the White House if it hadn’t been so bad. Then, things got really good, but many people didn’t realize that because of the endless drumbeat of media negativity and refusal to cover all of Trump's accomplishments, right up to attacking Trump for even saying there would be a COVID-19 vaccine by the end of this year (which there is.)

If Biden takes over and actually returns to the Obama policies, Americans will once again experience whiplash from the night-and-day contrast between what works and what doesn’t. Will the media be powerful enough to once again convince people not to believe their own lying eyes and bank statements?

    I am plum "heartbroken" that AOC didn't get her committee appointment! Guess she will have to sit in a corner, eat a Christmas pie, be a good girl, and suck her thumb, if needed. No green new Christmas for her!

    Dear Governor Huckabbe: Yes, Joe Biden's campaign was made up of Joe Biden lying to the American people about President Trump over and over and over again in TV commercials. How many times did I and other Trump supporters hear lying Biden say Trump is a liar, a racist, and killed two hundred thousand Americans AND NO REBUTTAL FROM THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN OR THE RNC!! Biden spoke directly to the American people in his commercials which was very effective. How many times did others and I write and tell the President to speak to the American people in TV commercials and rebut Biden's lies. Biden ran a lying but smart, disciplined campaign. President Trump's campaign was not good; and, after many months of employing a bad campaign manager who was "blowing" Trump's campaign, the campaign manager was fired, only 2-3 months before election day. It is my opinion three things caused Trump's loss: states' obvious violations of the Constitution and election law, states' failure to validate voters , and Trump's campaign.

    Mike, you are great at entertaining us with your news. With your influence, I believe you could do a lot more to stop the corruption in our government. We the people are ready for another revolution. You can help lead us in the proper and lawful direction we need. Maybe the Convention of States is the answer. We cannot just let this go any further. Please HELP.

    Jason's OP-ed was on point! The media snubs Ms. Melania for 4 years yet they call the president a racist. Do the media idiots know the meaning of racism? Clearly, they don't know the meaning of respect, much less grace!!!

    It has been an eye opening four years! President Trump did more for Americans of every color and walk in life, in my life time... maybe of all time. He exposed the monsters WE THE PEOPLE created and empowered. He focused our nation on America first, brought home our troops, elevated care for our veterans, strengthened our borders, brought focus to the unborn and gave voice to Christians. We love President Trump and pray every day that God will correct this election.

    Thank you for being the one voice in a sea of thousands that I can trust to tell it as it is, not what I might want to hear...but the unvarnished truth. I get my news from you and only you. I just don’t trust anyone else to report the unbiased facts. Hey, tell Sarah she needs to run for governor of Arkansas! She’s got my vote! Watching her put all those self important, overblown, pompous reporters in their place during White House briefings was soooo satisfying. The look on her face at some of their truly ignorant questions was absolutely hilarious.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family!

    Could you give us an up-to-date summary of where things stand with regarding to contesting the fraudulent election? Is there really any reason to think that Biden will not become President?
    Remind me again why AG Barr, the DOJ, the FBI and the Supreme Court have failed to act at all to protect the Constitution.

    Thank you for your honest and trustworthy news.. I always trust you to set the record straight about our current "living drama show" we seem to be experiencing...I especially agree with your take on the jealous bully magazine reporters and editors that seem to hurl insults at the most beautiful, intelligent, and patriotic First Lady we have had during my lifetime...and on second thought, she is too classy for most of the "rags" out there...not fit to read. Thank You and Merry Christmas and keep up the good work..

    Thanks Gov Huckabee. Always good to hear the truth. I believe the Lord is about to expose the darkness and corruption in the government, media and educational systems that are working to deceive the American people. Our President---President Trump is going to be exonerated from every lie of the enemy. And with a LOUD shout the United States of America will have the President who was rightly elected.
    God bless you and your family!
    Merry Christmas!

    Since I blame the ignorance about our system of government on academia falling for what academics in institutions of Higher Ignorance have been pushing for most of my adult life. Trickle Down Lunacy is as real as the economic model.
    I am past my Use By date but I would like to be here when the scholars at CNN, MSLSD, and the Legacy media discover that what they have been feeding the few viewers they have left is even worse than the BIG LIE. I was taught as a youth that when you sell your soul to the devil your Reputation is gone forever. I was shown that lying and stealing, even smearing another put you below the lowest form of life on the planet. I guess when you have No Moral compass it's easy to roll over like a pet!

    Get ready for many days of dark and bad days due to the fact that the
    Joe Biden-Kalama Harris Administration has already been compromised
    and that the people he has selected have a jelly fish backbone. When
    the Chinese or one of our enemies rattles their sword or demand that
    some tariff or sanction be lifted he will do it with no reservations.

    North Korea or China can already see that if they launch missiles
    in the Pacific or have them aimed and land close the US. when Joe
    calls them and tell him to "PLAY WITH HIMSELF" he will do it and
    they will attempt to do more until finally we are nothing but a
    another third world country.

    So much confusion on the vaccine - some say a wonder drug! Best thing ever! Others say it`s not just a vaccine, there are additives in it that are very scary - politicians take the vaccine on live TV, BUT are they really? Is it the vaccine or a placebo? You can see doctors who swear by it and doctors who swear AT it! For me it boils down to trust - 50 years ago I might have taken a new vaccine for a pandemic - Today, NO! I have lost all faith and trust in our government.

    Mike. first I love our President.. he gets things done. But Second , regarding the Vaccine. warp speed. I hope its safe but History shows and also CDC information until they removed it a few months ago, stated that vaccine development was approximately `10 years for fulll safety and efficacy .. Why the CDC site deleted that link is only up to ones imagination. U can ignore me. I am only a lowly Dentist for over 40 years. what would I know. below this comment is a partial summary from the Centers for Disease Control . it is only part of the total CDC "Safety and Precaution outline on any new drug/vaccine.. I will have to post it in another comment see comment from Dr Stephen Schwam.. below.
