MORNING EDITION

May 23, 2020 

By Mike Huckabee

 

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

From me and everyone at my newsletter, website and TV show, have a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend! I know that many large gatherings that usually happen at this time have been canceled, but there are still things you can do to commemorate this important day. The easiest is to remember to fly your flag on Monday. You can also donate to organizations that aid veterans. We’ll talk about all this more on Monday in a special Memorial Day edition of the newsletter, then return with our regular news analysis on Tuesday.

Be sure to tune in tonight for a new, Memorial Day edition of “Huckabee” on TBN. Country-rock legend Charlie Daniels will talk about his new project to help veterans through the pandemic. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott will tell us how to reopen a state safely (I hope certain other Governors will be watching!) Pastor Brian Gibson will discuss his nationwide movement for churches to stand up against violations of their First Amendment rights. Former Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker will talk about his new book on the Obama-era corruption of the DOJ. I'll discuss the parallels between President Trump and Winston Churchill with author Nick Adams. Nancy Jones will reminisce about her late husband, country icon George Jones, and she and producer/author Mark Koch have a free gift for every “Huckabee” viewer. We’ll cap it off with a musical Memorial Day salute from Jimmy Fortune of the Statler Brothers.

It’s a show jam-packed with news and entertainment, and it’s coming your way tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, and the same times on Sunday, only on TBN. To find where you can watch TBN, from local cable and broadcast channels to streaming, visit https://www.tbn.org/huckabee and click on the “WATCH” menu at the top. You can also stream previous episodes, highlights, and Internet-only “Digital Exclusives,” like extended interviews and extra performances by our musical and comedy guests. It’s all at https://www.tbn.org/huckabee

MEDIA FIXATIONS

If you wonder why the media fixated so much on something so dumb as whether President Trump wore a facemask when touring the Ford plant in Michigan, maybe it’s because it gave them something to talk about other than what he actually said there. And what he said was that churches are essential, he wants them to reopen and has talked to the CDC about that, and that blue state Governors who target churches and keep them closed will risk him overriding their rules.

Liberal reporters blasted him for leaving decisions up to Governors and not exercising more federal authority, so I assume they’ll be applauding him for this, right? Right?...Is that crickets I hear?...

IRREPARABLE DAMAGE

In a related story, to all the liberal news outlets that attacked Trump by saying he was undermining science by disagreeing with Dr. Anthony Fauci on wanting to reopen the economy, here’s the latest quote from Dr. Fauci:

While he warns against reckless reopenings without proper precautions, he said, “I don’t want people to think that any of us feel that staying locked down for a prolonged period of time is the way to go. But now is the time, depending upon where you are and what your situation is, to begin to seriously look at reopening the economy, reopening the country to try to get back to some degree of normal.” He added that prolonged lockdowns are causing “irreparable damage.”

So there you have it: Fauci agrees with Trump. And remember, if you disagree with Fauci, you’re a “science denier.”

Like Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, who just extended her “stay-at-home” order for a FIFTH time, until June 12th (of what year?) after winning a court ruling challenging her power to extend the lockdown beyond 28 days without consulting the legislature. Sadly, the people of Michigan are getting a harsh lesson in the importance of selecting judges, and even more so, in the importance of not electing Democratic Governors.

STRANGE PRIORITIES

Strange Priorities News: Sen. Kamala Harris, with her innate ability to recognize the most pressing issues for Americans, introduced a Senate resolution to condemn the terms “Chinese virus” and “Wuhan virus” as racist, and two dozen other Democratic Senators are supporting it.

Odd that it doesn’t also condemn German measles, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and every other disease named after where it actually came from. Meanwhile, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is trying to set a trend by call the coronavirus the “European virus” because many of the people who spread it in New York came there from Europe. You know, where they caught it from people who’d come to Europe from CHINA.

FUN LINK

Fun link: This will make your weekend. White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany gave the press corps some homework. It's a list of questions that “any good journalist” would have asked about the unfolding Obamagate/Michael Flynn/DOJ scandal. She gave them the three-day weekend to come up with some answers for them.

This really isn’t a fair test, though. They’re questions any good journalist would ask, so how was the current White House press corps ever supposed to think of them?

MORE DEM VOTE FRAUD

Say, you know that vote fraud that Democrats insist never happens? Well, it happened again. A former Democratic election judge in Philadelphia just pleaded guilty to stuffing ballot boxes in primary elections between 2014 and 2016. He did it the old-fashioned way: by standing in the voting booth and voting over and over as fast as he could whenever nobody was looking. Sometimes, the old school, low-tech ways are the best.

In his defense, he claimed he did it because an unnamed Democratic political consultant paid him bribes of $300 to $5,000 per election. So the good news is that we’ve found a Democrat who still believes in capitalism.

Bible Verse of the Day (KJV)

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Galatians 5:22-23 (KJV)

    I love Sarah Huckabee Sanders' efforts against the media...she's great. But she's too polite. She probably should not have been treating them as people.

    Kayleigh McEnany is not as nice, and is treating the media as the evil, corrupt force that it is. I enjoy seeing her throw questions back at them. It's the only thing that keeps them quiet--they don't have answers.

    May we, as Abraham Lincoln said at Gettysburg, “highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

    In response to the "Dem Vote Fraud" story:

    Cue the Left squawking that "it was only about 100 votes across 3 elections; what difference could that make?"

    The deal is, it needs to be ZERO, to ensure the integrity and trust in our election system.

    Governor Mike,

    I see where Maxi Waters told everyone to "Keep your A** Home".

    Nanny Pelosi is taking Waters' advice, and keeping all 233 of her A**es home.

    I really like Kayleigh's handling of the press. The questions she asked of them are spot on.

    When is Harris and the Socialist Democratic Party going to put a Bill up for vote renaming that racist game, Chinese Checkers?
    I think you, the GOP, and President should ONLY refer to Socialist Democratic Party, not ever just saying democrat again. There are no more democrats in America. Call them what they are, every time.

    A thought about Kayleigh McEnany's "Homework Assignment." Here comment was spurred by a reporter asking if President Trump would pardon Obama. So, this reporter seems to think Mr. Obama is guilty?

    I’ve been calling Covid 19 the Red Plague. The Red part is for the fact that it came from communist China. The plague part is for the “plague” of idiocy and sheep like or power grabbing/preditor behavior this pandemic elicited in far to many people.

    Keep up the good work.
