Dear Madam Speaker:

I read the six-page letter sent to you by President Trump on the eve of his impeachment and thought that as long as letters are flying around, I would send you one myself, just as someone trying to help.

The biggest question for you now is what to do next as you contemplate what action might be taken in the Senate. Your follow-up strategy is very important, I know, to your goal of damaging the President as much as possible before the 2020 election, but right now you and your Democrat colleagues are busy celebrating --- behind closed doors, of course --- and it’s hard for people who are giddy with merriment and even perhaps a bit hungover to chart their next steps. (You’ve tried your best to look somber and be discreet about the celebrations, but some news accounts have slipped out. You know how it is with leaks.) The impeachment of President Trump is your long-awaited Christmas gift to yourselves, and now that you have finally unwrapped it, you naturally want to play with it a while. Goodness, you’ve worked so hard and have come so far. And you must all be very proud of yourselves, considering you got this done completely on your own, with not one single vote from the Republican side. Who needs those Republicans, right? You made up your own rules and accomplished the deed all by yourselves.

You worked and planned for this, and only this, literally for years. You were singleminded. You did it. You own this.

But now it’s time for the Senate to take it on. And I just read in THE DAILY CALLER that you are “leaving open” the possibility of withholding the articles of impeachment from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell until you are “assured a fair trial in the Senate.” You said that, so far, you haven’t seen anything that looks fair to you. You’ve apparently suggested to reporters that you plan to hold up the impeachment process.

With gratitude,

Mike Huckabee

FEATURED STORY

Informed choices

By Mike Huckabee

Abortion activists don’t spend all their time and energy trying to prevent pregnant women from learning the truth about what abortion really is.  They’ve also been working to promote the widespread availability of abortion-inducting drugs by claiming they’re a safe alternative to early-term abortion with little-to-no complications or side effects.  If you saw the movie “Unplanned,” you’ll remember that was what Abby Johnson was told, and she thought she was going to die from the painful side effects.   

Well, in the interest of helping women make a truly informed choice about their reproductive health, here’s a story about a study recently published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons.  It found that abortions induced by drugs given to women up to the 10th week of pregnancy are far more dangerous than advertised, and have a complication rate four times higher than surgical abortion.

https://www.lifenews.com/2019/12/18/studies-show-abortion-pill-is-dangerous-for-women-24-women-have-died-thousands-injured/

Here’s a quote from that article:

“According to the research, risks include ruptured ectopic pregnancies, hemorrhage, infection and retained pregnancy tissue, which require surgery in as many as one in 20 women. The FDA reports at least 24 women have died along with their unborn babies from the drugs, and thousands more have been injured.”  Between 2000 and 2018, the FDA reports there have been 24 deaths, 97 ectopic pregnancies, 1,042 hospitalizations, 599 blood transfusions, and 412 infections (including 69 severe infections), with a total of 4,195 adverse events reported,” due to these drugs.  And it could be much higher, since only 28 states require clinics to report such complications.

Meanwhile, the abortion industry claims they’re so safe, they dispense them remotely by webcam so that women don’t even have to see a doctor before taking them. 

Tell me again about how these people are the guardians of women’s health.

I wanted to make sure you also read these comments:

Interesting story about how, despite more than $1 billion in spending to eliminate homelessness, Seattle’s homeless problem just keeps getting worse. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that “progressive” officials are spending most of the money on fighting “oppression” and “(interrogating) the current structures of power” in order to “examine the legacies of structural racism in our systems, and co-design a path towards liberation with black, indigenous, brown and other marginalized communities.”

https://www.city-journal.org/seattle-progressive-municipal-employees

Silly me, I would have spent the money on shelters, drug and alcohol programs, mental health care and job placement.  Let’s hope that the next increase in the homeless population comes from those officials being thrown out of office and into the street.

Well, this isn’t at all suspicious: surveillance tape of wealthy and well-connect pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide attempt in a Manhattan jail has somehow gone “missing.” Oh, just to be clear: this isn’t the video that got turned off when he did “kill himself.”  This is the video of his earlier suicide attempt, the first time that he didn’t kill himself.  Oh, sorry, I mean, the first time he TRIED to kill himself…

Since I’m constantly on airplanes (sorry, Greta!), I really relate to this story about a Christmas time act of kindness by a Huck’s Hero named Jack.  He was traveling with his family on a Virgin Atlantic flight from New York to the UK when he met a fellow passenger named Violet.  Violet is an 88-year-old retired nurse who was returning from a visit with her daughter, whom she hadn't been able to visit in a long time because of Violet's knee replacement surgery.

Jack was so taken with Violet that once they were on the plane, he insisted that they switch seats.  Jack sat uncomplainingly back in the economy section, next to the toilets, while Violet took his seat in First Class, traveling in style for the very first time. 

Check out these heartwarming photos that show how happy this random act of kindness made Violet. That smile is worth the price of a First Class ticket anywhere.

    Great letter--wonder if she or even any of her staff will bother reading it?

    What a great guy on that plane. Violet looked soooo happy! Bet she was a lot more comfortable in her new seat, too.

    I'm sure pp and pro-abortion activists will do their darndest to squelch any report of any adverse reactions with these drugs. Like, I'm pretty sure they don't want people to know how many women actually die from botched abortions. And, gee, make them ever so much "safer" by letting people other than qualified doctors perform them. Heck, it seems it would be easier to get that kind of job than to apply for a license to braid hair.

    I was very disappointed to read that Mark Meadows isn't going to seek re-election. But, one article alluded to his maybe having a position in the Trump Administration. He has served well, he will be missed, but I wish him well in whatever he plans to do--even if it's just to go home and put his feet up!!! Like Trey Gowdy and Sarah Sanders, I hated to see them go--but isn't it great that we live in a free country where each person can decide for themselves what is best for them at any given time. (Let Sarah know she is still missed, but it's nice to catch her on FOX tv!!!)

    Mr. Huckabee:
    I do not think that the congressional members realize how much stress America’s elderly are dealing with at this time with low incomes and holiday stresses and now the impeachment dealings! The constant raising of taxes and costs are seriously causing depression and critical health issues. When one adds to that the phone and electronic scams and the “fears” of today’s crimes, it is most unbearable! Then, add the continued calls and communications about “donate now to save President Trump” or to save my congressional seat as a conservative, these seniors are overwhelmed! Please do what you can to make all aware of the damage being done to senior citizens by all of this! Depression is a bad thing for anyone of any age, but seniors are at risk of dying from it and suicidal issues are rising in the older generation! Thank you and God bless.

    A fantastic letter, you did not miss a thing, covered all the bases. You are an unabashed American & though often criticized for being "extreme right-wing," thank God we have people like you who have given & are willing to example the "American way" to the liberals & socialists who are seeking to destroy "Americanism" & all for which our "way" has always stood!Thanks for being willing to STAND UP against socialization of our Republic; it's sad that President Obama, & many in Congress, don't see this danger & continue to lead us "to the left." God bless America, God bless you, and pray we soon stop this Marxist/Socialist madness being foisted upon us.

    I couldn't watch any of the impeachment debate. Only because it makes me sick. The evil democrats. But the big question is, how to turn our neighbors & friends towards the truth. These people whose opinions are formed from sound bytes from cnn & all the other ones that lie. My neighbor about chews my head off, for me being against abortion & a Trump/Pence fan. It's like I try to be a good Christian towards my neighbors. But WOW, they run bulldozers. Won't let me say a word. I guess, we can only pray, God will let them see His light. That abortion is murdering of God's creation & Trump, with Pence seek God's direction everyday. And the honor God's chosen people, the Jews. I try to tell them, I didn't write the rule book, God did. My job is to be obedient. God blesses obedience. But they are so busy being mean & loud that, well they choose to walk away from God's Blessings. And everytime people keep walking away from God, it's like watching a slow suicide of the soul. Such a shame. So much energy put into anger & running away from the one who loves them more than their Momma. But they talk so loud, they cannot hear the truth. God loves them & God Word is a love book for them to have their best life. But they refuse all of it, and walk away. This country needs a lot of prayer. Maybe over this Christmas & New Years, we can take time to pray for each angry person we know.

    Democrats have no conscience. I put them at same level as the ones that tortured Jesus Christ. How can the laws of our country allow what’s happening to our President Donald Trump?

  • Elizabeth Crouse

    All that is happening in our country breaks my heart, but God is still on the throne. I am praying, making my thoughts known and believing Americans will see the evil and vote what is right for America.

    Loved your letter to Nancy. While watching parts of Trump's Christmas Rally in Battle Creek, MI, (didn't get to hear any of vice-president, Mike Pence's speech) last night and follow-up remarks by local media and Fox, I learned a lot more about the liberals than I needed to know. The 13 degree and zero wind chill factor didn't deter the Trump supporters. Only 2 of the haters were jailed which was commendable on many levels. The 54000 who got inside after waiting outside for hours or days in campers thought it was worth the delays and the freezing cold. There were thousands outside watching on monitors. I didn't watch much of the impeachment process but one remark by Senator John Kennedy on Fox remarked that Hunter Biden's ability to get on the Ukraine/China payroll may not have come from his dad's name but zip requiter. You have some competition in the humor area but most Republicans do or can appreciate a way with words as your thousands of fans do.

    pelosi along w/the rest of the socialist party(aka democrats) DO NOT READ ANY COMMENTS/LETTERS/ETC FROM THE "FORGOTTEN PEOPLE(TRUMP SUPPORTERS/EVERYDAY AMERICANS). This "COUP" has uncovered the "depth of corruption within our government". Anti America/anti semitism/racist/hate rhetoric have been sanctioned by pelosi ie: Domestic Terrorism/High Crimes/Treason/etc"
