Mike Huckabee


My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

John 14:2-3

Who funded BLM?

If you were wondering who was dumb enough to give millions of dollars to Black Lives Matter, which has led to investigations as to what the radical Marxist founders of that group did with it, here’s part of the answer. You won’t be surprised to learn that a big chunk of it came from a secretive fund used by Silicon Valley tech giants. Yes, the same people who think you’re dangerous because you have freedom of speech.

Baby food shortage

The food shortages we keep hearing warnings about are already arriving in some quarters, and one of the most alarming and least reported is the shortage of baby formula. Desperate moms nationwide are forming cooperative groups to scour stores for baby formula, particularly for babies that need special formulas.

I know the media think the only story about babies worth covering is about protecting the right to abort them, but a lot of people are more concerned right now with keeping them alive. That could use a little attention, too.

Federal abortion bill is killed

For all the Democrats’ fiery talk about eliminating the Senate filibuster and passing a national pro-abortion law with 50 votes, it’s all just hot air to keep their leftist base agitated. Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin is on record as opposing eliminating the filibuster or passing radical abortion laws. Kyrsten Sinema supports abortion rights, but isn’t crazy enough to give up the filibuster protection when Dems are looking at becoming the minority. And even swinging-door Republican Susan Collins won’t support it and drove another nail into its coffin. Ironically, the federal abortion bill is going to be killed before it has a chance to be born.

Soft on crime D.A.? Very

Just how soft on criminals is Los Angeles D.A. George Gascon? He’s so soft that even when a celebrity (comedian Dave Chappelle) was attacked onstage by an assailant carrying a knife in front of a literal Hollywood Bowl full of witnesses, Gascon has declined to file felony charges.

The only upside is that if organizers of the petition drive to have Gascon removed from office were having trouble getting enough signatures, this might help considerably.

Inspiring Story

Read about the Missouri mom who had $40,000 in student loan debt. By doing everything she could to make money on top of working a 40-hour job, scrimping and living paycheck-to-paycheck, she paid off the entire debt in seven months. She’s what I’d call a responsible go-getter, and what today’s Democrats would call a “sucker.”,hp1r

FYI: It probably helped that she got a degree in Business and not in Transgender Grievance Studies.

Russia-Ukraine War Update

There’s been a lot of speculation about Russia’s May 9th holiday commemorating victory in World War II. There’s been talk that Putin is ramping up attacks in Ukraine to full scale, “total war against the West” mode so that Russians won’t think the nation looks weak on that day. This seems likely since the Kremlin’s chief propagandist categorically denied it.

There are also questions about how Russians would view a necessarily-scaled down military parade. Russia loves to show off its massive array of intimidating armaments. But this year, many of them are in Ukraine, and quite a few are spread all over the landscape. Also, the parade might spotlight the credibility gap between Russia’s projection of its all-powerful military and the way it’s struggling in Ukraine, which would undermine Russia’s international image even more.

The latest word is that Putin hopes to scare Europe and the US by filling the parade with military vehicles that can carry nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles.

But just to make sure that the nuclear threat isn’t taken seriously by nations that also have nukes that they could fire back, a Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson insisted that Russia will not use nuclear weapons in Ukraine. I guess they're just the Russian equivalent of Macy's parade floats.

    Governor Huckabee:
    Loved your program over he weekend and I especially liked your suggestions for need to send them to her so she can incorporate them into the debates. Then we will have secure and safe debates and not some dorky news person protecting one candidate or another.

    I just finished watching Dinesh D'Sousa's virtual premiere of '2000 Mules'. It was an Excellent program that has exposed what really happened to the election that defrauded the American people in 2020! I ordered 4 more copies to give to my friends and family who couldn't watch it on a virtual device. It explains and shows PROOF how the fraudulent election of 2020 happened and who's to blame, many non-profit organizations and the whole mail in ballots, absentee ballots, and drop-boxes played a huge role in this fraud of an election. President Trump truly won and Biden is NOT the legitimate U.S. President. This only exposed the swing states and not all the other states that were hoodwinked by the far left Democrats to stop the real man, President Trump, to get elected. Going back to paper ballots and NO EARLY VOTING NOR MAIL IN VOTING NOR BALLOT HARVESTING MUST EVER BE ALLOWED AGAIN. This documentary shows proof by scientific geo-tracking and video from video cameras that were posted where the ballot drop boxes were positioned, showed proof that felonies were committed and financed by Democrats and their 'dark money' web and money laundering, to pull off the coup to stop a legitimate election from occurring in 2020. Just like what happened in Venezuela and other communist controlled nations. But sadly and tragically, it happened in the U.S.A. It MUST BE STOPPED AND TO NEVER BE ALLOWED EVER AGAIN. Order the DVD and have as many people as you can, watch this explosive and TRUE and NOT disinformation, occurrence that happened right under our nose, and even RINO and leftist GOP members Knew this was happening, but didn't stop it! It is ballot harvesting and paid trafficking of illegal ballots and votes resulting in HUGE election fraud! Dinesh D'Sousa did a great job and every U.S. citizen who cares about their freedom and to keep the USA a Republic Democracy, NEEDS TO SEE THIS!

    What part of congress doesn't understand that the Supreme Court rules on the constitutionality of what Congress passes? If they return abortion rights back to the states, how does congress think they can pass a national abortion bill when the Supreme Court has already ruled it unconstitutional? I'm confused!

    On the baby food shortage: You are, of course, 100% correct about the National Media. However, this is something that people across the country should be concerned about. The Left wants nothing less than to commit genocide on the next generation. Why? I wonder if they realize that the next generation, who will be the recipients of their policies’ results, will therefore be the generation that will end their attempt at tyranny. I believe that our offspring will recognize, through genetics, that these weaklings are incapable of leading a pack of puppies to a tit. Therefore, they will dispense with these weaklings in the most appropriate way. In my opinion, a thousand hacks or more would be appropriate, however, I understand that such an end would be too gory for the majority of your audience. Most Conservatives, like myself, are too peaceful to even contemplate such a thing. That may be to our disadvantage or even our demise if the “left” were ever to take complete control of our once free nation.
    I hope our Lord God will give you the longevity to see us through the present, to a day when Americans once again wish for and propagate “Freedom for All,” who live within the borders of our great nation. Even if that includes the descendants, as well as the longest living of those who live today, who wish this nation to cease existence. Without them, who will remind us of the true greatness that our country and our beliefs bestow upon us all? Forgiveness is the Lord’s hammer, and only the weakest among us may yield it.
