My Show Monologue

November 25, 2018

We’ve made it through Thanksgiving and the elections were held over 2 weeks ago, but they are still counting and finding ballots in Broward Co Florida! 

I’m politically fatigued after 2 straight years of some folks not being able to accept the results of an election and it seems to take discovering new votes, counting some more than once, or accepting votes from people who aren’t citizens, who’ve been dead for years, or who voted in several places to get the results desired.  It’s time to get the Christmas decorations up, send the Christmas cards, start ordering gifts, and take a real break from the contentious world of politics.  

I love politics because I love my country and I know that our political system is the vehicle to enact the policies that can truly make a difference in people’s lives. 

I would love to see poverty eliminated in my lifetime here in the US.  I’d love to never hear of another child or spouse being battered and abused. 

I’d love to one day know that our culture wouldn’t accept as okay for an unborn baby to be torn into many pieces by money-grubbing empires like Planned Parenthood who victimize the babies and the birth mothers. 

I’d love to see every school a place where a child could learn regardless of whether he or she is rich or poor, black or white, or male or female. 

I’d love to know that if a person gets cancer or has a child with a developmental disability, there would be access to affordable treatment and a family wouldn’t have to become destitute and lose their home and their last dime before they had any help.  

I’d love to see every neighborhood safe from random shootings, drug users on the streets and filth.

I’d love to know that every single veteran who ever served this country would never be homeless and have to cope with PTSD alone and in the streets. 

I’d be thrilled if the news media just gave us the unbiased facts and let us make up our own minds as to what it means to us.  It would make my day if people using social media would get a sense of humor, stop being phonies who pretend they are offended by everything, and if they wanted to say something, would have the guts to say it on the record and put their real name behind it and not hide like a wimpish coward using some silly fake name. 

I’d love to see entertainers and athletes perform and play without feeling obligated to lecture me and belittle me for my political views or my faith. 

And I’d be ecstatic if folks in Washington would solve real problems rather than ignore the elections and try to overturn them with phony investigations and accusations. 

But for those things to happen, we have to become involved in politics and elect the best people who will work to create policies and laws that will empower people with good jobs, an education, a safe community, clean water and air, and a government that treats everyone the same—whether Democrat or Republican. 

So, I’m glad the elections are finally over, but the work to make America even better will never be over, so we need to keep praying, thinking, and voting.  But maybe not until after Christmas!

    We infamously beat “dead horses to death” in the news media every day, but there is one dead horse that may require a beating.....it’s the ‘health horse’.
    Thirty one states have declared outbreaks with polio like afflictions. Our children which is one of our greatest assets is also becoming our most vulnerable. For centuries countries have keep foreign life forms isolated from their domain to prevent possible contamination. All one has to do is look to history to understand the impact of susceptibility of foreign disease among its human and animal inhabitants. The news media fails to mention any possible connection of a few new disease forms as a possible factor included in our failed immigration policy.
    The left goes ‘bonkers’ about immigrant kids living comfortably away from parents, while they seek asylum. Yet we ignore our own children’s health environment. These children’s and their families lives will be forever altered. Is it any less significant than other assaults or violations against our native citizenry?
    Is it not possible that the influx of these un immunized immigrant children commingling with our vulnerable native children has been impacted with new diseases that we have no developed defense.
    Maybe we need to take some time and rethink the way that we integrate illegal immigrant children.
    This is the “health dead horse” that I speak of. It needs to be researched before it’s simply dismissed as a racist allegation.

    Gov. Huckabee please record my name as “anonymous” . My father was an Ellis Island immigrant, and I am not anti immigration, but the left has become too violent and misguided to appreciate this message.

    I desperately want these things too. I'm so tired of people telling me how to feel, who we "are" or "aren't" as Americans when I don't even come close to agreeing with their irrational and ungodly views. I'm not sure when the entertainment industry became self-proclaimed moral guides for the rest of us. There is no excuse for a large county in a US state to be unable to count votes accurately and honestly, and those in charge of that/those precinct(s) should be held accountable. Yea, I'm with you. Just tired. I think I'll direct the church Christmas play, decorate my house and cook an amazing meal for my family, all for which I am humbly thankful, go caroling with the church and pray that our land can continue to slowly but surely become greater than it was a few years ago.

    Amen to all your wishes! Of course, you are wishing for the impossible in this pre-second coming of Christ time. The scriptures are very clear about this, to me! However, we all wish for good things to take place and should work, vote, participate to that end.

    One of my wishes is that real justice in our USA could take place, but as our government is designed, it seems to be more and more unlikely. Every 2, 4, 6 or 8 years we seem to shift gears and each political side investigates the other with the game plan of the other to postpone any solid conclusion until the other side finagles control. Then the focus will be shifted and the guilty scoundrels get away scot free! The perfect example is the current collusion of the Justice department and the Hillary / DNC to take out President Trump! Now, the Democrats have taken the House of Representatives and I fully expect that justice WILL NOT be done and the swamp will refill rapidly.

    Our wonderful, God overseen Constitution is being torn away bit by bit by a culture that is very irresponsible. Democracy can only exist in a responsible culture.

    I hate to see what will transpire next year after we take a Christmas break! I would that the Babe of Bethlehem would get the signal and return and wrap up this mess! Until then, I will just look up and PRAY!

    According to the WSJ, the markets are now in a rout. Does anyone want to blame the election of a democratic House in control of our nation's as a contributing factor. Perhaps Maxine Waters as head of the House Finance committee?

    You and I seem to think alike but, we know that to do that ,you need a change of heart and only God can do that, so we must pray for God to Soften our hearts and guide us into a feeling of caring for our fellow man and our nation above other nations. We do not expect great things but fair treatment in all things.

    Thank you Governor Huckabee. I wish you would put this on Facebook. The people who refuse to even think about politics need to hear it. We pray for you, your family and all of our leaders. Merry Christmas to you all. Thank you and your wife for raising such a wonderful daughter as Sarah. GOD blessed us big time when HE gave her, her job. And he blessed President Trump and the WH.

    Well, I agree with everything you've said, but if we wait until after Christmas, the Dems will be in charge of the House...(how did we let that happen?) Isn't there anything we can get done before Jan? Or has the contrived caravan been put in place to distract from the real business that needs to be taken care of now? Are we really going to get Comey and Lynch underway before year's end? I certainly hope so. Thank you and Sarah for keeping us up to date on what's really going on. The TRUTH is priceless, especially in these politically charged times.

    Hi Mr H...I wish for all those things too and I think the democrats want that as well but as God as my witness they don’t act like it. Their policies don’t add up. But I am with you...now is the time for shopping ??, meals with family and genuine Thanks to God for everything.

    Yesterday was a marathon football game between Texas A&M and LSU, and this morning, the whining had already begun. The game was taken away...A&M paid the refs...etc etc. My kids participated in sports, showing 4H animals, and academic events in school...and yes, there were some questionable calls. My answer to them was, those refs/judges are the final authority. You have to play/work/participate so hard and so well, they can't ignore you...and they can't beat you. If you don't like the way it turned out, you work harder next time and own it. They did...and they succeeded beyond the norm. They are all grown with successful careers and wonderful families.
    The politicians are spoiled. They want to be the winners, but they are not willing to accept the authority of the system that is in place. Losing an election should start an immediate self examination of what needs to be changed, fixed, or worked harder on...not excuses.
    OK...my two cents worth! Gig 'Em! Whoop!

    I appreciate your honest and pragmatic approach! I truly wish you were iur President! I support what President Trump has done and is trying to do; but his mouth and tweets make it difficult to support him at times! God have mercy on us! Thanks for all you do for us Govenor Huckabee!

    Governor Mike: Re the media and democrats always being offended at the most assinime things, I'm surprised you did not know - every democrat candidate or potential candidate has to take a class at the Al Sharpton Institute of Mediocracy entitled "How to be offended at anything and everything". CNN sends their staff to the classes too.

    Mike you are so hopeful for the way it was growing in the 50 and 60s where for the most part their was 1 car 1 checkbook and Dad took them both to work with him a noon siren and a 530 siren kids didn't need a watch as a kid do as u were told everything went smooth. 4 channels on the TV, Our fear was Russia, bomb shelters no CNN faking the news CBS ABC NBC presented what we thought was real news were the game in town I am sure their were nit wits wanting to push communism the media didn't push it at the time like the nitwits today are pushing socialism the big difference is we were being taught capitalism and working to make what U wanted from the system, today people want to be in a big herd being controlled by a few I hope and Pray that does not happen I do not want that to happen to my or our grandkids our freedoms are our biggest capital protect them at all costs. Keep pushing the old times they were for the most part honest, the towns didn't have a lot of law offices they had bars and churches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Many of us would love to see the many 'wishes' you suggested come true. However, I don't believe there are enough people to make it happen. Perhaps, they are out there somewhere but lack the resources to ever make it happen when it takes thousands it not millions of dollars to seek an elected office that can make a change. Perhaps, we need more Trump types in office without the twitter account. We can only hope.

    Mike, I stand with you on all the points you mentioned. It sounded like a perfect world, but we both know that isn’t here on Earth.
    I was stunned at the truths revealed about George Soros and it pulled the pins out under me. Thank God, for He is my Savior. If I continue to walk in fear and trembling in this world, not get seduced by the wolfes who roam in their ways of deception and lies, I know someday both of us and those who walk beside us will receive our reward and see God face to face. That is our blessed hope. This is our only hope.
    Thank you for bringing truth and sanity in your daily messages. Don’t ever seek the presidency again. God gave us the bully name Donald Trump, and he is facing the world and the country with a strength we probably have not seen since Samson. President Trump is in place for such a time as this. Samson wasn’t perfect with all his wives and concubines, but he had his strengths. Reminding us the Hillary being elected would have brought destruction like we had never seen before in America makes me all the more grateful for whom God has placed. Merry Christmas. Kathy

    Great Newsletter. I agree with everything you wrote and wish both parties would work together to get things accomplished. I’m hoping the new blood in the Democratic Party will try to do something to help us instead of trying to take President Trump out every minute of everyday. Wishful thinking ??
