Fact-checking the "fact-checkers"

By Mike Huckabee

During the October 22 debate, President Trump said a vaccine for the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus would be available by the end of the year. Hostile media outlets and their smug “fact-checkers” smacked their editorial commentary all over that story, telling us that Trump’s claim was “despite contrary evidence,” that it contradicted the CDC, that “experts” call it impossible, and that producing a vaccine that fast would be a “miracle.” Here’s a trip down the Memory Lane of Media Bias…

PS – The vaccine became available on Monday, December 14, 2020, so some conservative media outlets are now demanding that these anti-Trump know-it-alls follow their own “fact-checkers’” and refer to it henceforth as “the Trump Miracle Vaccine.” Add this newsletter to the list of media outlets demanding that.

April reports shatters Education myth

By Mike Huckabee

If Joe Biden gets into the White House, we will surely start hearing about how we need to spend many billions more on public education without regard for whether it will actually help students. This even in light of the pandemic revealing to many parents just how politicized and substandard much of the public school curriculum has become. It will be throwing tax money into holes that should be fixed through serious reform. All because the public education system is too “sacred” ever to question or change.

So thanks to Ed Driscoll at Instapundit for pointing out this report from April by the Foundation for Economic Education that shatters the myth that Americans of an earlier era, the ones routinely slandered in today’s classrooms, were less well-educated than today’s public school students. It turns out that like most other things, putting education under the oversight of the federal government did not necessarily improve it.

The Electoral College Votes

By Mike Huckabee

Yesterday, the presidential electors met and awarded 306 votes to Joe Biden. Coincidentally, that was the same number Trump won in 2016, because Biden won those same swing states Trump won in 2016 (or maybe that’s not so coincidental.) Biden spoke afterward (worrying many with his frequent coughing that he attributed to a cold), saying that judges across the country ruled that “no cause or evidence was found to reverse or question or dispute the results” despite the Trump campaign’s ongoing legal challenge.

That’s not exactly accurate: judges, legislators and other officials have rejected some claims but largely refused to look at the evidence, instead rejecting the appeals on technical grounds such as lack or standing, not filing soon enough or filing at the state/federal level instead of the federal/state level.

Normally, the electoral vote might signal the final bell, but competing slates of Republican electors from the disputed swing states also met and cast conditional votes for Trump. With the results still under challenge in the courts, they wanted to preserve their states’ role in the electoral process if things take a turn.

This article also has some details on a lost one/won one decision in the Trump campaign’s appeal to the Michigan Supreme Court. You should read it all, since you never know if it might suddenly become relevant to who actually becomes President.

Incidentally, after casting her vote for Biden for New York, Hillary Clinton called for abolishing the electoral college. I’m sure it would be much easier for Democrats like her if elections were just determined by California and New York. It would save all the money and effort they have to put into states like Michigan and Georgia. I mean “campaigning,” of course…

So, where does the Trump campaign go from here? Unfortunately, law Prof. William Jacobson sees any further attempts to get Congress to step in as futile.

He warns that the battle was lost long ago because Democrats were highly organized while Republicans were blindsided. They got leftist officials and judges elected in swing states who allowed voting laws to be loosened and refused appeals to challenge suspicious votes that favored Democrats. They play a long game while Republicans don’t, but we’d better get started and fast, because of the likelihood of a Biden presidency, a Pelosi House and, if they pull it off again in Georgia, a Democrat Senate.

Jacobson likens it to when Obama came in on a wave of media euphoria, with a Democrat House and Senate. It seemed as if conservatism was dead, but the Tea Party movement quickly organized to fight back and despite being constantly slandered by the media (and even establishment Republicans) helped take back the House and then the Senate and at least blunt some of the destruction, also laying the groundwork for the populist rebellion that elected Trump.

This time around, the stakes are higher and the threat to America even greater. These people are more radical than ever, and they’ve been chomping at the bit for four years to force their far-far-left policies on Americans. Even Obama would never have defended ideas like defunding the police or openly embracing socialism. Biden might have the public image of a moderate, but do you really think he’ll be pulling the strings from the White House basement? And the radicals now have the big tech giants, social media and a news media that long ago flushed away its journalistic integrity, all giving them 100% backing. Plus their undermining of the integrity of the voting system. And just imagine how much further they'll go with a monopoly on power for even two years.

Fighting them is going to take a second Tea Party movement, one that rises even faster. With 74 million Trump voters behind it, it has the numbers, but it needs the organization. Hopefully, that’s something that Trump will be heavily involved in. But the job will be made much easier if the organizing and watchdogging starts right now in Georgia, to insure that they never get that monopoly on government power that the left has been craving like a junkie craves heroin.

AG Barr announces his resignation

By Mike Huckabee

Monday, Attorney General William Barr announced his resignation, and President Trump said that Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen will become Acting Attorney General. It was presented by the media as a surprise announcement, likely showing the deep animosity between Barr and Trump, who has been openly critical of Barr.

In fact, the New York Times reported last week that Barr was considering leaving early, since he considers his major work done. Trump praised Barr for doing “an outstanding job,” and Barr’s resignation letter was filled with praise for Trump for the “many successes and unprecedented achievements you have delivered for the American people.” Barr wrote that he was honored to have served under Trump, and that “the nadir of this campaign was the effort to cripple, if not oust, your Administration with frenzied and baseless accusations of collusion with Russia. Few could have weathered these attacks, much less forge ahead with a positive program for the country.”

So Barr’s leaving wasn’t really a surprise, but I bet you’re surprised to hear about that resignation letter. Considering the lack of coverage it got in the media, for some mysterious reason, this might be the first time you’ve heard about it.

Forensic audit ordered

By Mike Huckabee

Monday, following a hearing into alleged voting irregularities in Arizona, State Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Eddie Farnsworth ordered a forensic audit of the voting machines used in Maricopa County.

Republicans praised the action, saying this is the only way to restore public confidence in the integrity of the election. Or possibly, to shatter it even further, considering the bombshell report in Wisconsin in which data analysts declared that Dominion Voting Systems machines in Antrim County had to have been deliberately programmed to create a 68% error rate that led to massive unsupervised vote authentication and that the machines should not have been used, nor should the results have been certified.

Now, before anyone starts wiping the memories of these machines (if they haven’t already), how about similar forensic audits in Pennsylvania, Georgia and Michigan? On the one hand, we have Republicans (and even nearly a third of Democrats) believing the election was stolen; on the other hand we have Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) telling us the election was perfectly legit and that’s just a crazy conspiracy theory. Auditing the machines should tell us the truth which would allay all suspicions and false charges. If both sides truly believe what they’re saying, then I can’t imagine anyone objecting, could you?

    Swalwell scandal certainly gives a new twist to "The Spy Who Loved Me"! It seems that nobody does it better!

    I retrospect to President Trump’s legal options and the federal government that is still in office to Inauguration day, I am asking these questions as a layman who has tried to do a lot of research on why can’t the Federal Prosecutor file charges against the 5-8 people individually and collectively in the video that seemed to violate the constitution? My research shows these individuals should be subject to be subpoena on the following 1). Comments made under threats of perjury. 2). Falsifying federal documents (voting ballots/mail fraud—in suitcases under table). 3). Witness tampering and interference in a federal investigation (sending people home (no witnesses), previous made statements not under oath). 4). Falsifying federal documents to libel slander and endanger reputation of a person. 5). Possible domestic terrorists ( individual/ group collaborated and physically participated in falsifying federal documents to over-throw or remove a sitting government). 6). Individual, lawsuit against each person in video in civil court for falsify written documents to libel/slander, endanger funds and defamation of character of a person.

    I have always believed that RINOs and never trumpers were really “placeholders” for the Democrats. Label yourself as a GOP but hold the line for democrat votes/policies. That makes people on the right feel that they have representatives on the right, but people who never uphold conservative values. How better for the left to infiltrate the GOP with wolves in sheep’s clothing to make it appear the GOP is represented. I remember seeing the conservative review website who graded GOP members of Congress as to how they voted conservative. A great many of OUR representatives were graded “F” because they never voted conservatively! These spineless GOP members are really leftists in GOP clothing! I’m convinced! I’m amazed at all the GOP and TDW languishing that most of the GOP are literally sitting on their hands and not fighting! DUH! Can you say “Georgia Governor Kemp?” McConnell etc, obvious no pushback from GOP

    I see now that even the Senate is comprised there us no recourse left for real Americans. Many Republicans are RINO's and their only allegiance is to their pocketbook and the globalists.
    I see millions are talking about a new revolution
    We need God more than ever. He controls the times and the seasons
    Also the Church has gotten in bed with the same group.
    Will it be the believers go into hiding like it gas done in other nations?
    Every day you have different experts left and right.
    Some give hope while others want us to accept a Marxist takeovet.
    If it happens there will be no elections in 2024 as the Marxists in control will turn us into another Venezuela.
    Will invite CCP control so our nation works to supply Red China with all she needs

    Governor, I skimmed the article at the link re the election being over and lost and I must say, it is a sad state of affairs that a nation as great as ours would allow such a travesty of justice to prevail. Are those of us who were robbed of our votes to simply accept that because the Democrats did such a bang-up job of cheating in this election they're entitled to the presidency? If there is no recourse through the courts or any other means despite the overwhelming evidence of voter fraud it seems only right that the electorate be allowed a do-over of the presidential election. It's just not right to reward cheaters with the spoils they've attained through fraudulent means! If there's even a question of fraud, as there undoubtedly is, there must be recourse for the offended parties, all 74 million of us! A do-over election could and should at least be considered and I believe carried out in order to quash all doubt as to who is the rightful occupant of the White House.

    I completely lost faith in our judicial system and as a matter of fact of our entire "democratic" republic! I feel the Founding Fathers are turning in their graves. While for the past 10 years (since Obama) I've seen a systematic destruction of our Constitution and erosion of our values, especially the moral ones, I had faith in the system of checks and balance, but both Congress and SOTUS have demonstrated to have sold their souls to the devil. The latest "straw that broke the camel's back" was SOTUS 's refusal to review the allegations (with lot of evidence) of a planned fraud by the Dems to get Biden elected. Their job is to review the law and safeguard our Constitution and their refusal to even view the allegations (could have reviewed and still deny relief if proof was not substantiated) only proved, at least to me, that nobody checks Congress. Both Congress and SOTUS have schemed to obstruct President Trump for the past 4 years, even with bogus and downright false accusation. It also seems that everyone plotted against this president, including the DOJ (after years of endless investigations no one ever goes to jail--from the Dems, that is), our intelligence agencies, the Administrative State (Deep State) and even the GOP. While the Dems all stick together, some in the GOP have undermined Trump. As I recently read in the Bible, the time has come for God to abandon this country because we abandoned Him. And under Biden, His wrath will be revealed. The hate for the man is beyond belief. Sadly all Americans will pay for the insanity unleashed by the Dems, MSM, Wallstreet, and Silicon Valley mogul. Sad days are ahead!

    Thought AG Barr was going to solve the ANARCHY cities problem and clarify MARXISTS are a bunch of thugs and looters since Democrats know nothing about LAW and ORDER.

    Mike I agree that the Freedom Revolution starts NOW but let's get real this fraud has foreign fingerprints ( sorts, China ect) all over it and look at the silly "squad" - all foreign born. The one Democrat now Blue Reich are puppets no more no less and their rank and file are gutless or this wouldn't have happened .

    Gov. Huckabee
    If there wasn't enough chaos in this presidential election, I have an additional concern about the function of our government. If Biden is impeached, as surely there will be some sort of investigation by the Senate, will Kamala Harris automatically become the President?
    Thank You.

    Vaccine solutions:
    IF Dems & Libs wont take vaccine since it was developed Under Pres Trump
    I say DONT Take it, leave it for others than
    Unless 2 faced Dems break down & cry for vaccine.
    Or ration it later on.
    Otherwise ALL take vaccine minus Immunity cards & later microchip??
