A Bipartisan Investigation of Facebook

By Mike Huckabee

Senators Marsha Blackburn and Richard Blumenthal are launching a bipartisan investigation of Facebook, following a blockbuster investigative piece by the Wall Street Journal. It found that Facebook was keeping secret from the public internal research that shows that Facebook’s photo social media platform Instagram was harmful to the mental health of users, particularly teenage girls. The research showed that teens blamed Instagram for increases in anxiety, depression and poor body image. This is especially worrisome since Facebook is planning a version of Instagram for children 13 and under.

The Senators said in a statement, “It is clear that Facebook is incapable of holding itself accountable. The Wall Street Journal’s reporting reveals Facebook’s leadership to be focused on a growth-at-all-costs mindset that valued profits over the health and lives of children and teens.”

While it’s a welcome development that someone is finally paying attention, I don’t know which is less of a surprise: that social media is harmful to the minds and bodies of young people (it isn’t doing many favors for the minds of some adults, either) or that the people running Facebook don’t really give a hoot. Senate hearings might drag some of this out into the light of day, but if they’re like most Senate hearings, nothing will come of them except providing a few days’ worth of TV footage of Facebook executives feigning shock that anyone would think they’re not acting with the purest of motives, and then it’s right back to being evil.

While I’d like to see a miracle, like the government reining in Big Tech or Big Tech oligarchs magically developing consciences, short of that, the only solutions are much harder: Self-control (breaking yourself of the social media habit) and parenting (not letting your kids fall into that rabbit hole.) Remember, like any parasite, social media platforms live off of what they suck out of you (in their case, personal data.) If you don’t want the parasite to make you sick, then shake it off and avoid it.

"Why Won’t People Believe The ‘Experts?’"

By Mike Huckabee

National File obtained a leaked recording of a Zoom meeting between doctors and a marketing director at Novant Heath New Hanover Regional Medical Center, a group of 20 hospitals, clinics, and offices that treat patients in North and South Carolina. It reveals a doctor urging the clinics to be “more scary to the public” about getting vaccinated. She suggests inflating the numbers of COVID-19 patients by counting those who have already recovered and using messaging that falsely implies that “If you don’t get vaccinated, you know you’re going to die.” She added, “I mean let’s just be really blunt with these people.”

https://nationalfile.com/doctor-wants-to-be-scary-to-the-public-and-inflate-covid-numbers-if-you-dont-get-vaccinated-you-know-youre-going-to-die/

After it became public, the hospital released a statement asserting that the suggestion was not taken. But it already made an impact. It's scared the public, only in the opposite way intended. To be really blunt, it increased people’s fear of believing what they’re told by health authorities. So nice job, doc.


Now Polls Show The Public Is About Evenly Split

By Mike Huckabee

A couple of new polls show the public is about evenly split on President Biden’s recent vaccination mandates, although the mandate on companies with over 100 employees has approval of 53-46%. Larger percentages of Americans approve of other levels of government-enforced COVID measures, such as vaccine mandates for various groups such as health care workers and teachers, mask mandates and social distancing guidelines.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/americans-divided-biden-covid-poll

And, feeling their oats after the failed recall of Gavin Newsom, Los Angeles County officials plan to lead the way with the strictest “Show us your papers!” rule yet. They plan to require people to show proof of vaccination to enter indoor bars, wineries, breweries, nightclubs, and lounges and proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test for "outdoor mega-events" such as Dodgers, Rams, and Chargers games. They will also recommend, but not require (for now) customers at indoor restaurants to show proof of vaccination. As usual, there’s nothing about exceptions for people who’ve actually had the disease and may have natural immunity as good as or superior to vaccination. This is the government, after all, so one size fits all.

I continue to believe that it’s wise for most people to get vaccinated (I am), providing their own doctors okay it, but I don’t believe the government should be forcing people to do it, or denying you basic rights and freedoms until you submit to having something injected into your body that you object to. If vaccinations work, then how are the unvaccinated a danger to anyone but themselves?

My bigger concern is that even after COVID is under control, with authorities having tasted this unprecedented level of power over people’s lives – and the people having willingly given up their freedom for a false promise of security – there will be no end to future restrictions “for the public good.” In that sense, this could spell the end of America as we knew it.

Disclaimer: yes, this kind of severe reaction is extremely rare. But so is death by COVID in this person’s age group. It’s another reason why vaccination should be a personal decision of risk assessment between you and your doctor and not a government mandate.


They’re Trying to Slip One (Or 8 Million) Past You

By Mike Huckabee

Democrats are trying to convince the Senate Parliamentarian to okay green cards for 8 million illegal immigrants as part of a filibuster-proof, simple majority $3.5 trillion “budget reconciliation bill.” Yes, they actually want us to believe that amnesty for 8 million illegal immigrants is a simple budget matter that shouldn’t require any bipartisan support.

Tip to the Biden White House

By Mike Huckabee

Trying to change the name of the Abraham Accords will not make us forget that Trump brought peace to the Middle East and you brought chaos and the return of the Taliban.

More On Norm

By Mike Huckabee

Here’s another tribute to the late comedian Norm MacDonald, explaining why his death isn’t just a loss to comedy but, like the death of Rush Limbaugh, it’s a loss of a rare public figure who was unafraid to speak blunt truths in the face of those who seek to silence any questioning of their lies and bull droppings.

    The COVID-19 inoculation is an experimental drug, not a vaccine, nor has it been approved by the FDA. It has taken the lives of over a hundred thousands lives alone in the USA. Don’t listen to the mainstream media, they are not reporting the truth nor does CDC. Checkout other sources of media, I will not give those names as I’m sure this website is secure enough to mention. Christine Grady, head of NIH, is married to Dr. Fauci and he & Bill Gates were roommates in college, see some connection as to the outbreak of the virus.

    Science has proven that vaccinated people can still spread the virus... that's why the vaccinated are mandated to wear masks along with the UN-vaccinated. And this proves the point that the virus is not discriminatory among the vaccinated versus UN-vaccinated... only people are and thus, the rational scientific deduction reveals that the vaccine status of carrier of the virus to whom the vaccinated person is exposed to is irrelevant. Also, recent research has shown a decline in vaccine potency after 6 months. This demonstrates that it is NOT a true vaccine. They say that once the pandemic has waned they can eliminate the boosters. HA HA... I'm just rolling over with laughter because research has also shown that there are around a thousand variants of this virus... Really doesn't make sense at all to get vaccinated. I am very suspicious of the global agenda in this effort. If the global elite really believe in climate change, it stands to reason they would want to depopulate the world. What better way than under the guise of a false vaccine.. right? So bottom line, this is just Biden's abhorrent propaganda based on complete misinformation. Just like his disastrous judgement call regarding his plan of how to pull troops out of Afghanistan causing the lives of military and private citizens, he is assuming a horrendously misguided role which is basically a form of communist agenda in the handling of the virus that does not have a sound, foundational base in science. We must overturn the House seats come the 2022 election and remove him from office before we begin looking like another China.

    Unless for some reason no one has noticed but "Big Brother" is here. When Zuckerburg bragged about how he only wanted what's best for the rest of us without asking us our opinion, that's when I decided it was time for me to drop Facebook. Also, when he, Google, Amazon, Twitter, and others blatantly told us what was best for us by their profiling our data, I knew then "Big Brother" was out of control. Mr. Huckabee, you are exactly right in saying the Senate Hearings are a waste of taxpayer dollars when it is quite evident they will not hold Big Tech accountable for their misdeeds. The frustrations conservatives are feeling is due to our elected representatives are not doing their jobs. They believe we are stupid enough to believe because they question them on a national platform that we think this will prove they are working for us. It is a "Sham Performance" and at best it is a "Shameful Display" of arrogance and it is up to us to vote them out when they do not do their jobs!

    Feeling their oats after a fake election? Sure ok. Same idiots nothing changes so they'll stay a tyrannical mess.
    And stop pushing the fake Poll-i-coster that always oversample Democrats or should I say Blue Reich stooges.
    That ain't happening in my hometown and we are in a Blue State.

    And I have had so called friends laugh and snicker at me because I mentioned that a long time trusted friend got her covid shots and I observed a small magnet would stick at the site. All I know is that there had to be some type of metal having been also injected with the "vaccine"

    Pelosi says biden knows HIS foreign policy that is true and bidens policies of foreign policy is HIS a disaster in every way one can look at it. Biden is a misfit, Nothing he attempts becomes a success by normal people's standards. If you are an Islamic Terrorist or a Mexican Cartel Member or a CCP enabler or a corporation or a person that loves giving your money to a wasteful government biden is your person he has delivered negative results for all normal people here in America and around the world biden is the leader of the Anti America movement the most disliked person next to Satin on this planet and the sad part; he doesn't know it. So stupid and his family members don't care this family of misfits are only normal to a corrupt.world.

    I know you received the vaccine, that was your choice. You say you believe it is wise for others to get vaccinated as long as their doctors agree it is okay. Dr. Robert Malone, one of the scientists who developed the MRNA vaccines is wary of it because the vaccine has not been through the proper clinical testing to prove its efficacy and there are questions about what effect it may have on our immune system down the road. More people have already died from receiving this vaccine than all the other vaccines together. I personally know two people who tested negative for Covid, took the first jab and ended up being hospitalized with Covid, one of them for nine days. Both waited the three months necessary before getting the second jab and both of them came down with Covid again. My wife is diabetic but her endocrinologist told her not to get the vaccine. This doctor said she reads everything about what is happening with these vaccines and said the public is not being made aware of all those getting sick from taking it, some have had severe reactions to them, especially the second dose. She also noted that if whatever is being put into these vaccines was so good they would have been putting into the flu vaccines a long time ago. I see my family doctor twice a year. In my most recent visit he was pushing getting the vaccine. I asked him how many cases of the flu he had treated in the past year- his answer 'None.' I asked him how he thought that was possible. He said "the masks." I won't write my response to that. The flip flopping on many issues surrounding Covid-19 should bother everyone. A great amount of data has been hidden from the public but I don't believe there is any doubt that COVID is man made and that Dr. Fauci is responsible for supplying the cash to help the Chinese develop it. We need to be putting our faith where it truly belongs, in God. We are told we are "cursed" for putting our faith in men. To think this whole affair has not been the greatest power grab by governments across the globe destroying the God given rights of the world's citizens is to be naive.
