BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 

 

More On The Dominion Lawsuit

By Mike Huckabee

Here is some more commentary on that $1.3 billion libel suit Dominion voting machines filed against MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell for supposedly harming their reputation, and why it could blow up in Dominon’s faces (Lindell claims he’s glad they sued and has taken a “bring it on” attitude.)

Bottom line: as the provider of public election voting machines, Dominion is the very essence of a public figure, making it extremely hard to win a libel suit, even if they could prove actual malice, which is required. Interesting detail: author Fred Weinberg reports that while Dominion is seeking $1.3 billion in damages, the company’s revenue from government contracts from 2017-2019 was only $120 million. I would say that they must have a highly inflated sense of the value of their reputation, but I thought that was obvious already.

PS – Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz agrees that Dominion is not “going to get any pillows out of this” lawsuit.

Hiding Grandpa’s Car Keys

By Mike Huckabee

While the fawning media coverage of Joe Biden might make you think everyone believes he’s just the Bestest President Ever, those who know him personally seem to be acting a bit…nervous about having him in charge of so much power.

For instance, three dozen House Democrats are calling on him to relinquish his sole authority to launch nuclear weapons. They claim it’s just a general belief that no one person should have so much power, but the whispered rumor is that they really fear he’ll launch a nuclear strike on some kids who walk on his lawn.

Meanwhile, a federal judge in Texas has indefinitely extended his block on Biden’s order to halt all deportations. Maybe we should also make him relinquish his sole authority over that executive order pen.

California Democrats Might Be The Worst Kind Of Democrat

By Mike Huckabee

Under a $7.6 billion COVID-19 relief bill just approved by the California state legislature, while the state’s small businesses are still shuttered and suffering, $600 stimulus checks will be given to illegal immigrants.

In a related story, California Democrats are circling the wagons and preparing to pull every dirty trick and rule change in their arsenal to block voters from being able to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom.

More On The Democrat Attempt To Ban Conservative Media

By Mike Huckabee

Because this threat to free speech needs to be shouted from the rooftops, here’s more on the letter sent by California Reps. Jerry McNerny and Anna Eschoo to major TV carriers, implicitly threatening them with Congressional action if they didn’t deplatform conservative news sites such as Fox, OANN and Newsmax that air what they consider “misinformation.”

This makes the case that because the letter was sent on Congressional letterhead under their official capacity as Congress members, it’s a violation of the First Amendment. As I pointed out in my original comment on this, Congress members have to take an oath of office to support and defend the Constitution, but these two are abusing that power to attack the First Amendment. Since Nancy Pelosi is so impeachment-happy, I demand that she launch impeachment hearings against these two. For once, she actually has solid legal grounds, and unlike the last target of one of her impeachments, these two, unfortunately, are still in office.

New Study Of Misinformation Points To Distorted View Of Reality

By Mike Huckabee

Speaking of “disinformation” and “misinformation” and where it really comes from, a new study by Skeptic magazine found that the liberal media’s coverage of race and police shootings has given many Americans a completely distorted view of reality.

Respondents were asked to estimate the number of unarmed blacks killed by police in 2019. 44% of liberals guessed that it was over 1,000, compared to 20% of conservatives. In actuality, 13 unarmed blacks were killed by police in 2019.

There’s more at the link.

Of course, any deaths are tragic, and while we don’t know the circumstances of these 13 killings, they should be thoroughly investigated to make sure police misconduct, racial attitudes or incompetence aren’t endangering public safety. But this study suggests that media misconduct, racial attitudes and incompetence are fueling a defund-the-police movement that’s endangering public safety, too. Shouldn’t we hold our media to the same standards of responsibility that we do our cops?

A Reader Writes Back...

"Your morning and evening news is quickly becoming my first and last go to reads for keeping up with news. I appreciate your honest, forthright assessment of issues. Keep up the great work."

    I sometimes forward them to fellow vets who have been brainwashed into thinking Sleepy Joe and the other president are next best thing to " white bread"

    Governor,

    I would like to second the comment about relying on your newsletters for my information. While I know you have a conservative slant, everyone has some kind of a slant, I believe you go to great lengths to be accurate and not misleading, one of the few in media that do this. If you err, which is rare, you are upfront about it.

    It is somewhat disconcerting when one has questions about the President’s mental acuity to have him solely in charge of launching a nuke. I still am not sure if his gaffs are just the result of not being good on his feet, bring a stutterer, or signs of age related mental decline. He really should have been examined by a panel of top experts in the field, preferably non partisan, but that being almost impossible to find I would say one from each party at least. We have had this problem before. Much as I respected and appreciated President Reagan, he really should not have been on office his last year. At the same time, the thought of a President .Harris is chilling. I blame Trump for this. I truly beLieve if he had kept his mouth closed, or at least tempered his remarks, the last year of his Presidency, he would have been re-elected.

    Regarding the legislation you discussed in your morning newsletter of the non male/female universe...what you wrote about was appalling and I quite frankly have a hard time wrapping my head around it...but can you imagine the minutiae of “little things” that will have to go? As I was running errands I walked into a store with segregated male and female clothing departments. Will we have to do away with male/female pronouns? Will insurance be allowed to pay for procedures or tests that “appear” to be “sexist” such as mammograms? The mind boggles and the stomach turns.

    I have a gut feeling that the Dominion and other machines are able to be controlled like old river boat gambling was controlled. I just can't believe that with some of the brains that go to top Universities or breaking a democrat controlling the machines hasn't occured yet. I ain't ROCKET SCIENCE

    There is so much refreshing humor in your observations and comments. Makes me laugh out loud AND keep coming back for morning and evening doses of laughter. I love it!

    What are the minorities, suburban educated women.dead voters. teachers Biden voters doing today? All are enjoying watching Americans become less free less educated and paying more for gasoline that has a trickle down effect now paying more at the pump and soon more for most products what’s going to happen I won’t be able to tip the workers at the car wash no tip for take out I am on a fixed income and don’t plan on going back to employment every one will be cutting back on a lot of things Biden voters are going to feel Biden’s policy when the tip is low think of Biden

    As a retired lawyer, I understand why Mike Lindell may have wanted to be sued. He now has the possibility of his lawyers deposing under oath anyone from Dominion...from the CEO to any code writers who programmed the voting machines. This will likely turn out to be very interesting.

    My wife suggested I attend Anger Management Classes! I asked who and where were they holding such classes? She told me CNN had a source that I might look into! I have decided to continue screaming at the TV instead.
    Keep telling the Truth Governor- It seems we are now going to have TRUTH Squad and if it's run by Democrats the Constitution is finished.

    I was thinking along the same lines about the 2 CA bully congressmen and their abuse of The Constitution. As long as it stands, they don't have a leg to stand on as far as free speech.

    Cutting conservative news won't help the liberal media. I hardly watched any news during the 8 Obama years...I can do it again! And I will still vote non-Democrat in 2022 and beyond.

    Great idea on impeachment for those two! Where's Peaches Pelosi now? She needs to get to work!

    The $ 1.3 billion suit against Mike lindell and similar suits against Rudy giuliani and sidney powell are intriguing in the magnitude of their claims. Lindell, giuliani and powell could very be victims of an elaborate hoax but it appears the shear size of the claims by dominion appear to be an effort to intimidate the defendants into silence. If the manipulation/voter fraud claims were untrue it would be a simple matter for dominion to put the whole matter to bed by allowing full access to the machines and software. For some suspicious reason dominion and the jurisdictions which use their equipment have circled the wagons and appear to be hiding something. Whether this is just a matter of inept business practice by dominion or the claims by Lindell, guiliani and powell have merit we shall soon see most likely in the findings of the Maricopa Co forensic audit of the election. Worst case we may have to wait for these lawsuits to be litigated but the truth will be told.

    Sir: Your "Evening - and Morning Editions" have become my "go to" news sources and I truly want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. It is so comforting to see someone include God's Word in his news reports. That, plus true and believable news - no matter how bad it is, it is always "spot on" and dependable.
    We've loved you since - since even before you proved yourself when you accepted the mantle of Governor of AR that afternoon in the AR Capitol - but that cinched it. We were there that day and we applauded loudly - and we still do.
    keep up the good work

    Common Sense is in NYS, but in the rural regions who are against Cuomo and we are trying to get rid of him, but it is hard when all of NYS govt. is run by Democrats in all three branches, but there is light for us in the regions outside of NYC. Most regions outside of NYC are run by Republican Conservatives, like town mayors, county managers, etc., and we are doing our damnedest to keep Cuomo out of our local govt. and it is working. Of course you have the other large cities like Rochester and Buffalo and Syracuse that are all run by Democrats as most large cities are in states, but never forget, NYS is NOT only NYC! Even the NYC Dems. are getting fed up with Cuomo's dictatorship of 'micro-managing' stuff he has NO business being involved in. Anyway, in one Western NYS Region, Genesee County and Finger Lakes Region, as Cuomo calls us, we are finding good solutions to more mass vaccination sites for the people to get Covid (Chinese) virus vaccines. One is Genesee Community College, which is a small SUNY college, but is run by Republican Conservative County Leaders. And we are doing good things for the area, despite push back from Cuomo, but we are still going through with solutions that Cuomo cannot deny are good ideas.

    There were/are MORE NYS Trump-supporters than the MSM will ever report on! And we are continuing to get rid of the socialist dictatorship from Cuomo first, then will continue on to the federal govt.! AOC is out of luck as she is NOT representing most of NYS, just like Hillary didn't either.... I think that NYS will be a RED STATE within 20 years, and the CUOMO pandemic debacle has helped speed up the change. I probably won't be living in NYS then either, but at least my grandchildren will have the benefit that I couldn't have, to see NYS as a Red State and a better managed state, or 3 states by then. (Also remember, NYC area was the worse case scenerio for covid, but Western NYS was at lowest numbers in the state, that also tells you that we are actually operating separately from Cuomo's crazy 'dictatorship'.)

    Even our Native American neighbors in Western NYS are against Cuomo and Biden too. They have always been for Conservative leaders, not liberals. We are good neighbors to one another, the Native Americans and the non-Native Americans here in Western NYS. We Respect them and they us, we really aren't them vs. us, we are just plain neighborly, as it should be anyway. Rural Communities are the communities that have always been for unity anyway, we take the time to get to know our neighbors. When some people who are strangers to the community start up 'protests' and don't follow the laws here, we make sure they are 'educated' to the fact that their behaviors aren't tolerated here and if they want to be part of our rural community, they better respect the law and others if they want to be respected themselves. Otherwise, they don't belong here. Rural communities are made up of relatives and friends of relatives of the people who live here, like the 'Neighborhood Watch' system. It still exists in rural communities, but there are no longer signs up saying that. Common Sense shouldn't NEED a sign to prove it exists.

    Does Dominion's bullying lawsuit against Mike Lindell mean that he gets to examine their machines and operations to prove his point? This could get interesting!
