BREAKING NEWS: Parler sues Amazon after being shut down

By Mike Huckabee

On Monday, Parler filed suit against Amazon for violating their contract by taking them offline, and also for breaking anti-trust laws, as Amazon continues to provide service to Parler's competitor, Twitter.

They also claim that this action was taken not just to help Twitter but out of political animus, violating Parler's civil rights. Details here.

Problems with impeachment

By Mike Huckabee

I already told you about the quixotically dumb idea of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats to impeach President Trump with less than two weeks to go before he leaves office anyway. They’re even saying that it could go on beyond January 20th, so he would be impeached even after he’s already left office. They’re like a deranged dog with a fixation on chewing the mail carrier’s leg off.

In an interview with “60 Minutes,” Pelosi even admitted that the reason why this pointless partisan exercise is more important than, say, providing relief to people suffering from Democrat virus shutdowns is because they’re trying to prevent Trump from being elected again.

Pelosi declared, "This president is guilty of inciting insurrection. He has to pay a price for that."

Apparently, she didn’t learn from her first failed attempt at impeaching Trump that you have to have actual evidence. I criticized Trump’s rhetoric myself, but legal experts have gone over what he said last week, and nothing in his speech meets the legal definition of inciting violence or insurrection. He even specifically called on his supporters to “peacefully and patriotically make your voices be heard.” As law professor Jonathan Turley points out, it would damage the Constitution by setting a precedent of impeaching a President for comments protected by the First Amendment.

Here’s the lack of evidence of incitement explained in even more detail, with a little Latin thrown in for good measure:

After all, it’s not as if he supported and cheered on protesters who stormed into and occupied Pelosi’s office, as Pelosi and AOC did in 2018. Or urged people to commit violence against the President and his supporters, as at least ten Democratic members of Congress did.

There are also a number of other problems with this impeachment scenario. As law professor Alan Dershowitz points out, Senate rules won’t allow the case to be taken up until 1 p.m. January 20th, an hour after Trump leaves office, “and the Constitution specifically says, ‘The President shall be removed from office upon impeachment.’ It doesn’t say the former president. Congress has no power to impeach or try a private citizen, whether it be a private citizen named Donald Trump or named Barack Obama or anyone else.”

But others claim it can be done, and what they really want is to disqualify Trump from being able to run again (wow, they sure seem terrified that he would be reelected after four years of them in charge, which I’m inclined to agree with.) Here’s an article from Reuters making that claim.

However, law professor Glenn Reynolds argues impeachment only disqualifies someone from holding “offices of trust or profit,” which are appointed, not elected offices. Senators can’t tell the voters whom they’re allowed to elect as President. They don’t get a veto on that.

Besides, conviction in the Senate would still require a two-thirds vote, and I don’t know how many Republican Senators from solid Trump states really want to flush their careers down the porcelain convenience just to impeach a President who’s already left office. Maybe, if they try really hard, they could think of something more productive to do with their well-paid time.

Try again Nancy

By Mike Huckabee

How can you tell when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is reeeeeeally on the wrong side of an issue? When even PBS and CBS call her on it. And wow, does she not like that!

Stop the presses

By Mike Huckabee

A major liberal media outlet has finally run an article about Hunter Biden. It’s a puff piece in Vanity Fair about him starting an art career, but it’s a start. Personally, I can’t wait to find out how he ends up making $50,000 a month as a starving artist.

Big surprise

By Mike Huckabee

Big surprise, movie box office receipts took a major hit in 2020, dropping from $11 billion a year in North America to $2.3 billion, and $42.5 billion to $11 billion worldwide.

Frankly, I’m surprised it was that much, considering how most theaters were shut down completely for much of 2020. Theaters in some non-blue states are back open at limited capacity, but people are still wary of returning. The revenues came largely from pay-per-view home streaming releases, which doesn’t help theater chains, and a bit of good news: drive-in theaters, a great American tradition that was dying out, suddenly got a revival. Let’s hope that after the pandemic passes, people remember how much fun drive-ins can be and keep supporting them, especially since many are locally-owned.

By the way, here’s a note from our pop culture expert, Pat Reeder:

“Laura and I already had the Covid, so we go to the movies to help support our local businesses and because we like to see movies on the big screen. However, we haven’t seen a new movie in ages. We’ve recently seen ‘Rear Window,’ ‘The Blues Brothers,’ ‘Fiddler on the Roof,’ ‘Anchorman,’ ‘The Birds,’ ‘Spaceballs’ and we’re going again soon to see the Marx Brothers in ‘Duck Soup.’ I honestly tried to find something new last weekend, but there wasn’t a single thing we had any interest in seeing. Here's a crazy thought: Maybe if Hollywood wants to get people back into theaters, they should try making good movies again.”

CCP comes to USA

By Mike Huckabee

Joy Pullman at the Federalist has a must-read round-up of the Great Purge of wrongthink people by Big Tech and other large corporations, and the push for total personal destruction of political opponents by the slanderously misnamed "Lincoln Project" (Abe must be spinning in his grave that they've stolen his name.) She makes the point that they learned these tactics from the Chinese Communist Party’s “social credit” system and are bringing it to America.

This is something that’s long been in the works under the guise of “cancel culture,” social media outrage mobs and public shaming. In case you’re not familiar with it, China uses social media, phone records, thousands of public surveillance cameras with facial recognition technology and other “Big Brother”-like means to keep tabs on everyone’s words and behavior.

If you say or do anything – ANYTHING, even jaywalking – that displeases the government, it goes on your record. Then, when you attempt to exercise any freedom, such as buying a train ticket, you may find that you are not allowed to because your social credit score is too low. The stated goal – indeed, a line used to sell this as a wonderful idea – is that if you follow all the rules and never do or say the "wrong" thing, you can do anything you want. But if you are a bad person who violates the rules or says the “wrong” thing too often, you won’t be allowed to step outside your house. It’s the ultimate in totalitarian control, and notice how it relies on the aid of high tech companies to enforce?

When asked about this, the Chinese will tell you it’s a wonderful system, and they support it completely – but then, what else are they going to say? They're terrified to tell the truth. Here in America, we still have the freedom to call it what it is: an Orwellian nightmare of censorship and intimidation that should be stopped at all costs – but for how long will we keep that freedom? If some people who currently hold a lot of money and power and falsely believe they occupy the moral high ground have their say, not for very long.

    I feel so bad for those caught up in the heat of the moment at the Capital, I'm sure there will be no fund me for them to fight charges for merely wandering the halls. And no Antifa listen to the video's people shouting "No Antifa" and trying to stop them. And now the press and congress getting their pound of flesh from Trump -so sad we may lose this Democracy. Keep up the good work Huckabee

    The States that are govenored by American Valued Leaders need a heads up Look at Minneapolis the government sent Somalia residents there as a voting block and the Congress got Omar DeBlasio and Cuomo ruin NYC and NY they chase their voters to American run states and the value of the state will turn into a Socialist run state sooner or later the new voting block are coming for self monetary reasons first however the idea of reforming its idea of conforming to the culture that lured them is going to change the culture similar to Minneapolis are you ready for another Omar?

    The State of the country is under the control of the Left. The horrific events taking place is due to the education of the last 25 years of Anti American Teaching within our public schools. I doubt many 25 year olds read your letters so my question and to the elderly that read your letter come this summer if people having 10 15 year HS reunions will get a better understanding of what Socialism and Communism looks and feels like after being taught in our public schools, is to their liking or understanding with speech being canceled freedom of movement being restricted what products can be used and the taxes and wealth distribution is a good thing or not the idea that these kids are now working more and more of their efforts are being channeled into a wasteful account the government maybe with the brains of a 18 year old might mature as 30 to 35 year old may make a difference in how America will look.

    The incompetents sitting in the Washington DC Bubble that includes the FBI, and and the talking heads of the Main Street media most likely never been in the military or assigned to Vietnam and other trouble spots. .

    If you look carefully at the tactics used last Wednesday the tactics used can found in reading military and terrorism and guerilla tactics. you DO NOT ATTACK THE STRONGHOLD, YOU ATTACK AT THEIR WEAKEST POINT like a state capital, other US Government facilities, cities and places like that. The tactics used in the TET Offensive by the North Vietnamese in 1968 and used today by any terrorist groups world-wide. Joe and Nancy and rest of the
    worldwide. So Joe, Nancy, Democrats , Anti-Trumpers and followers of the CCP. Wait you are going to wish had used your intelligence to think vice reacting to what Main Street Media and Social Media told you.

    This country is on Life support the next 2 years will tell the story if America survives or not. The mission from the Left is to De Constitution America get rid of as many pieces as possible. If the Constitution survives the assault we have to rid the Congress of the of pro communist members. As one sees how big Corporations are going to buy more seats in Congress the CCP have already got the title to seats and will be adding more to it's Monopoly game. 2020 we may have won a few seats back thats a good start now to keep them from being bought will be a challenge. As one knows good people go to DC to become rich thats been the plan for decades. The culture has been exposed more so in the last 4 years. To enforce election laws and voter ID is a requirement for this to happen. A honest media outlet is required these are the foundations to get America out of its demise these are just a few to get a two tier Justice system will be required can America hold the Constitution for two years time will tell. The country needs people with integrity and value to take seats away from the people trying to destroy America this task will not be for a feeble character it will take people will a hearty people with real value for the good of the people.

    Dear Mr. Huckabee, I am not an American citizen and not even an American resident.
    My heart is aching, and my stomach is in constant pain, as I cry in silence for the great and good America that I grew up learning about and getting to love.
    In my own way, I pray to G-d Almighty every morning, day, and night to show us a miracle and cure the cancer eating up America, especially by the demonic left-communists-democrats whose evil and dictatorial power is showing what I saw coming for many years. Unbelievable but true! And if nothing is done right NOW . . . it will get much, much, much worst.
    What is most unpleasant, in my opinion, is that the republicans are not stepping up to the challenge right now!
    President Trump NEVER asked his supporters for rioting or violence, quite the contrary he said: “to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” Furthermore, if my memory does not fail me, he said (I am paraphrasing): ‘we are not going to destroy statues, we are not going to burn or destroy, that is not who we are.’
    I am sure that you have a copy of the video-speech and can correctly quote what he said.
    Why are the republicans so scared that they fail to fight these blatant lies?
    They MUST repeat his words 100, 1,000 and 1 million times and expose the falsehoods of narrative left?
    G-d forbid that my instinct become a reality, which is that the 75+ millions of American patriots, and law-abiding citizens get so fed up, so humiliated, and subjected to such tyranny that they would rise up and come out to right a wrong with arms and and start a civil war in America.
    Mr. Huckabee, I think that you have the knowledge, the contacts, and the power to speak frankly and openly and make the dictators on the left to come to their senses BEFORE something so drastic happen. (G-d forbid).
    You must get a group of well-known people (politicians, attorneys, judges, etc.) and appeal to them to come out together, expose the democrats and tell the truth on national TV so people do not keep hearing the fabrications of dictators like Pelosi, Schumer, Kamala, Biden and 100s of others would-be dictators.
    The point has to be made very clearly to the left: you keep persecuting, blaming, accusing, and demonizing the republicans . . . and if a civil war explodes the blood will be IN YOUR CONSCIENCE.
    As the saying goes: “Even rats when cornered will attack you back”.
    Finally, I am sure that you are well aware that “the riots” were organized by ANTIFAS infiltrators that intermingled and camouflaged themselves as Trump’s supporters. They can be clearly identified (in videos) by thru their actions and their face covering while carrying American flags. Also, you can hear republicans desperately screaming: “nooo, don’t break that… don’t do that… etc.”. THIS ALSO HAS TO BE EXPOSED, ONCE AND FOR ALL, since we all know that the democrats and the ’authorities’ will never exposed them for what they are but will let America and the World believe that they were Trump supporters, if you know what I mean.
    Please, do something.
    I certainly hope that I am not asking you to do something beyond your capabilities for I know that you are a man of G-d, and you know how to talk and a truly clear way.
    May Hashem Bless you and your family. Bless and protect President Trump and his family, and May G-d Bless America.

    Glad Lesley didn't "Stahl" out on Pelosi! It's about time that Madam Speaker got some heat thrown her way. If she can't take it, the maybe she needs to leave the House!

    The CCP might as well confine all of us to our homes because none of us are perfect!!!

    Impeachment proceedings are a waste of time and money! It won't go anywhere except to File 13. All of the DIMS/MSM need to leave the country without pay for the remainder of 2021. That should be sufficient enough time for them to be cured from TDS!!! And enough time for us to move forward and heal from DE-mon-crat-itis!

    Governor, Thanks for all the information about impeachment. I have been stewing about this, thinking it would keep President Trump from being re-elected in the future. Have you read that a lot of slimy Law students and lawyers want to have Senators Cruz and Hawley disbarred? I guess the judicial system is under the impression that they can Try, convict and sentence any citizen according to their own rules of law. Thousands are signing petitions. "what are 10,000 Lawyers tied together at the bottom of the ocean? A good start." "How do you tell if a Lawyer is lying? His lips are moving" You have probably heard these but, it makes me feel good to repeat them today. The Courts have abandoned 80 million voters. All the Intelligence agencies are corrupt. Congress only feathers their own nests and let Americans suffer for months and then they gave their money away to Swamp causes. I think Americans need more control in their Government. How about some veto power? Now, many of us would like to encourage our President but, we are Censored. One thing they can,t stop in this Country and that's prayer. God Bless President Trump. I cover Him with the Blood of Jesus. You also Governor.

    Newsmax had a very good segment from an individual who analyzed the timing behind the attack on the Capital and President Trump's speech demonstrating that no attendees of his speech could have been at the front of the group that breeched because of the distance from point to point and the start and end of the two events.

    Mike I love your twice daily emails. You are an important part of where/how I get my news because I know I can trust you. Thank you and your team for sorting through all the noise so we don't have to.

    Now that Twitter and Facebook have suspended President Trump's account, how do we get messages of support to him?
