Matthew McConaughey

By Mike Huckabee

This is an interesting article about how Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey has emerged as a rare voice of reason amidst all the leftist, anti-Trump howling in Hollywood. Reading it is great preparation for when you see me interviewing him soon on “Huckabee” on TBN. Yes, he agreed to come on my show. I told you he was a rare voice of reason.

New Los Angeles DA to usher in crime wave

By Mike Huckabee

What's Next, A Rain of Frogs?: I have immense sympathy for the suffering of the people of Los Angeles under the thumbs of their autocratic and incompetent leaders. So I hate to inform them that it’s about to get exponentially worse.

Like too many cities around the US, they foolishly elected a George Soros-backed district attorney, George Gascon, whose idea of “criminal justice reform” is to make crime legal. Gascon was sworn in Monday, and he announced what he immediately plans to do, as recounted at the link above: “his office won’t seek the death penalty ever, no more juveniles being charged as adults, no more use of gang or gun enhancements to put violent criminals away for a longer time, no more bail, resentencing of up to 20,000 convicted offenders (with hundreds possibly being released as soon as tomorrow), and more…”

A former Deputy DA from another county commented to RedState.com, “This is going to increase violent crime in a way people in Los Angeles can’t even imagine. Full stop.”

The big question is, will the Democrat-imposed unemployment, depression, poverty and crime wave be enough to make the people finally stop voting for the idiots who are creating it? Or will they just move away to red states and vote for the same idiocy there?

Election Updates

By Mike Huckabee

In a surprise move late Monday night, the state of Texas filed a direct lawsuit with the Supreme Court, arguing that the election procedures in Michigan, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin violated the Constitution and the Court must order those states to let their legislatures appoint their electors. The full text of the lawsuit is here.

Why would Texas have standing to intervene? Think of it this way: unconstitutional voting procedures can allow an illegal vote to disenfranchise a legal voter within a state. But if those procedures determine the winner of a Presidential election, then wouldn’t they also be disenfranchising the voters of other states who voted for the candidate they believe legally won the race?

Meanwhile, judges in Georgia and Michigan dismissed Sidney Powell’s cases seeking to overturn the certifications of those elections due to vote fraud. The reasons were mostly unrelated to the evidence, such as lack of standing to file the suit, filing too late or that it should have been filed in state rather than federal court. The Michigan judge did claim that Powell presented theories and conjecture of what could have happened, but not evidence that it did. Powell claims that today’s “safe harbor” deadline doesn’t apply in fraud cases and that she has until at least December 14th and will appeal.

Woke Santa fired, kid gets his gun

By Mike Huckabee

“Social Justice Warriors Ruin Everything” Dept: If you ever wondered what would befall Ralphie from “A Christmas Story” if he asked Santa for a Red Ryder BB gun these days, then wonder no more.

A video went viral of a little boy asking a mall Santa for a Nerf Gun for Christmas. The woke St. Nick refused, telling him, “No, no guns.” His mom clarifies, “A NERF Gun,” but the real life Bad Santa is adamant: “Nope, not even a Nerf Gun…If your dad wants to get it for you, that’s fine, but I can’t bring it to you.” He then suggests some other toys, but the disappointed boy has already rushed back to his mother in tears after being woke-shamed by Santa.

Fortunately, this Christmas story has (spoiler alert!) the same happy ending as Ralphie’s: the boy got his Nerf Gun when the mall sent another Santa to his home to deliver a free one. As for the Santa who imposes his political views on kids, he’s been fired (no, not out of a Nerf Gun.) He can go back to the North Pole and try to organize the elves into a union.

Bonus Happy Ending: The boy got to be a guest on Stephen Crowder’s YouTube show. I like the comment by one viewer that this should inspire people to donate lots of Nerf Guns to Toys For Tots.

Chuck Yeager RIP

By Mike Huckabee

It’s hard to imagine being shocked at news that someone had died at the age of 97. But if there were ever a man whom you could imagine being tough enough to take Death’s scythe away from him and chase him off with it, it’s retired Brigadier General Chuck Yaeger, whose wife Victoria announced on Twitter that he had passed away Monday night. We offer our sympathy and prayers for his family.

The legendary test pilot was the personification of the term “The Right Stuff,” the title of the Tom Wolfe book and movie about the NASA space program that appropriately began its story back on October 14, 1947. That’s when Yaeger strapped in behind the controls of the rocket-propelled Bell X-1 plane nicknamed the “Glamorous Glennis” and launched the space age, becoming the first man to break the sound barrier at 700 mph. Just six years later, he was setting new records by flying at 1600 mph.

His daring test pilot accomplishments were only a part of his amazing life story, which included 64 combat missions in World War II (he was shot down once, evaded capture, and made it back safely) and returning to combat flights decades later during the Vietnam War. He was a true American hero, recipient of the highest honors including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and an inspiration to soldiers, pilots, astronauts and every American.

You can read more about his remarkable life at the link above. And here’s a clip from “The Right Stuff,” dramatizing the moment when Chuck Yaeger piloted America into the space age by breaking the sound barrier. I hope this will make you want to watch the entire film, because it’s a humdinger of a movie.

BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY

    Cynthia A. Johnson of Michigan has this to say: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fkUl9B44BEs How is it that she can make threats to people and claim the soldiers know what to do and to make those Trump people pay. This is getting beyond serious and beyond scary. These people should not even be allowed in power.. I personally will not take this threat, nor any other threats these evil people make, lightly. They have forgotten who they work for and think we are all peasants to be shoved around at their whim. I've already called the Michigan GOP and demanded that this woman be held accountable for her dangerous and threatening statements.

    Comey's FBI ineptly sat by and allowed Scum like Swalwell and many more scum provide the CCP with valuable IT and United States Secrets he is not the only one Pelosi needs to be investigated knowing that compromised Congress people were put at the head of important committee positions that are to protect our nations security. Look at the scum at the head of these committees Shitff Nadler Watters Omar the list is long and treasonous in my opinion, a very strong accusation, however with these people selling out America The CCP would not have a huge influence its has today.

    What is the bottom line for New York California. With Anti American value heratics running these states to clear out anyone that can afford to leave leaving behind lower income citizens, and the wealthy corrupt citizens stay. The people leave the real estate and property stay the method to chase decent people from a beautiful climate we know what the method is what is the bottom line after the people leave who or what replaces business and homes and how does one take ownership in a corrupt and anti American environment. Does The CCP or Mexican Cartels or Soros based Communist buy the real estate and then change the laws and rules or the states leave the US and form another country on the coasts the take over is in progress now to what extend. New Yorkers and Californians leave who or what is to defend and fight for their states?

    In regard to Dem rule in California l would be sure that the reason why they keep getting elected would be because they have rigged the system.
    If they don't have any sense of justice when it comes to the rules and legislations they pass then do you honestly think they will play fair in giving their constituents what they want.
    They have found the candy store which gives them absolute power and freedom to do what they want. They are not going to let anything get in their way. They and the other long term Dem States possibly invented voter fraud and used extortion and any other bully tactic so they can keep protecting their utopia. When they are on a good thing they are going to stick to it.
    However l have been reading Exodus ....

    Dear Mike,

    Unfortunately your column today is prescient regarding idiot voting. As you noted: "The big question is, will the Democrat-imposed unemployment, depression, poverty and crime wave be enough to make the people finally stop voting for the idiots who are creating it? Or will they just move away to red states and vote for the same idiocy there?"

    To answer your rhetorical question, as a resident of Georgia, I can tell you they just moved here and voted for the same stupidity, lunacy, lawlessness and delusion they left in California. Since Georgia has become the new Hollywood, those idiots have come here with their same socialist delusion and are now helping to create the downfall of our once great state. It is disgusting to see it happening. And to see our governor and secretary of state going along with it makes it even worse.

    Please continue your insightful investigative journalism we need to stay informed and not indoctrinated.

    Sincerely,
    Wallace Rowan

    I don't feel sorry for anyone in Los Angeles because they voted for those loons and they deserve whatever is dished out to them. I just wish they were not allowed to move and spoil other states because they are not intelligent enough to see they created their own misery by voting for loons.

    Governor Mike,

    Your sympathy for the people of LA is noted, but unless the democrats stole that election too (not beyond possible), they are getting what they asked for.

    This is typical grunnion-like behavior that has plagued LA and they Bay area for decades. (For those unfamiliar with California, a grunnion is a fish so dumb even other fish notice. The grunnion flops up on the beach every other year or so, deposits its eggs, and then disappears - kind of like LA voters who flop up at the voting table, and hand the democrats their ballot, and disappear.

    Makes it kind of hard to feel to sorry for them.

    Amazing Man Chuck Yeager You can Judge America by the Standard Chuck set everything Great. He may have been the standard Donald Trump used to come up with his slogan MAGA. Instead we sat thru Obama's Administration make America feeble again until Trump resurrected America. Trump made America Great and he even made the world take notice and made countries become civil and productive again. Donald guided this phenomena and the CCP didn't like it the spoiled countries were starting to learn to work again and get better China feared Trump and saw the positive he was creating so the CCP conspired with the Obama's the MSM and powerful Individuals including Agencies of The US Government and powerful corporations and sabotaged America chance to become greater. Control by the CCP and bought off Congress and DOJ may be more than America will withstand it will take 10 years of fleecing America before North America will look like the slums of Democrat run cities.
