History Lesson

By Mike Huckabee

As a companion piece to our recent commentaries on election integrity, we offer thanks to Instapundit for compiling this lengthy history of Democrats and liberal media figures who have cast doubt on election results or made or promoted claims of stolen elections -- prior to the 2020 election, of course, when talk like that suddenly became treason and insurrection.

The Biggest News Around My House

By Mike Huckabee

Okay, I know there’s a lot of national news out there, but this is the biggest news around our house, so pardon me for making it a headline.

I hope you will get behind Sarah’s campaign and offer her your full support. I can’t think of anyone who is more knowledgeable on the workings of the Arkansas government, or who could possibly do a better job. And that’s not just her dad’s pride talking!

Here’s her announcement video and a link to support her campaign.

Plus there is this:

Surprise, Surprise

By Mike Huckabee

The Washington Post announced that now that Joe Biden is in, they will no longer be “fact-checking” everything the President says. They figure Biden will be like Obama and never lie (Ahem – “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor,” “Obamacare will save you $2500 a year,” etc. etc. etc.)

Of course, we’ve all learned how the media define “lies” from a Republican: any opinion they disagree with, any joke at their expense, any deliberate exaggeration to make a point, any figure of speech they can take literally, and any statement of objective fact that they can find a way to nitpick or come up with an alternative interpretation.

But that’s okay if they don’t want to chronicle all the lies Biden tells (he’ll govern as a unifying moderate, he won’t ban fracking, nobody who makes less than $400,000 a year will pay a penny more in taxes, etc. etc. etc.) We’ll just keep doing it for them.

Oh, and the Federalist is also on the case.

Two Democrats Say No

By Mike Huckabee

Senate Democrat Leader Chuck Schumer’s plan to do away with the filibuster and impose radical left plans to “remake” America with a simple one-vote majority may have already hit a wall, let us pray.

Monday, two moderate Democrats, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, made it clear that they would not go along with eliminating the filibuster under any conditions, meaning that anything Schumer wants to pass would still need to attract at least some Republican support to reach 60 votes.

The news caused Republican Leader Mitch McConnell to drop his demand for preservation of the filibuster as a condition of a power-sharing agreement, which seems naïve to me. I strongly salute Sens. Manchin and Sinema for having the integrity to stand up against such an outrageous power grab. But I question the wisdom of betting the future of America on their ability to withstand the pressure (and sadly, I’m sure, the threats) that are likely to come their way because of it.

Of course, they could always end that by switching parties. Just throwing that out there.

By the way, even President Biden says he’s opposed to doing away with the filibuster. After so many years in the Senate, surely he remembers how doing away with it for judicial nominees came back to bite the Democrats in the rump when Republicans won back the White House and Senate.

The Gov. answers reader; we can't say election wasn't stolen

Monday’s morning edition featured commentary about Sen. Rand Paul’s spectacular response to George Stephanopoulos’ insistence that he say the 2020 election was “not stolen.” I’m glad to see that Sen. Paul has continued to receive glowing praise from many, including Dan Bongino, whose comments we heartily second. As we had done, Bongino also tore apart HR-1, which destroys state legislatures’ constitutional right to make their own election rules. (We watch Dan on Rumble; hope you’ll subscribe and check him out there.)

Neither I nor Sen. Paul have said the 2020 election was “stolen," because to do that, one must have proof that it would have turned out differently. Saying it was stolen is not the same thing, though, as very strongly SUSPECTING it was stolen. To help us make that distinction, we’re featuring this letter from a reader that arrived in response to yesterday’s commentary.

…………………….

From William:

Mike, you say you read every comment and I believe you are a man of your God and therefore keep your word, so I assume you are reading this. When you personally will not say the election was stolen, and you have acquiesced to this stolen election, then you are becoming one of them. Your commentaries and information are generally spot on, but if you are giving in to the takeover that they have accomplished then you are no longer worth listening to.

Let it be known that I campaigned wholeheartedly for you when you were running for president. Still have some Huckabee for president signs around, but without concerted leadership from people like you to undo what has been done, we are all doomed and you are complicit in it.

……………………..

William, thank you for writing. Let me assure you, I have not “acquiesced,” am not “one of them” and, under the (shudder) Biden administration, see something new every five minutes that makes me want to undo the horrible thing that has been done. “Complicit in it”? Them’s fightin’ words.

Given everything we know about the 2020 election, I have not said and, like Rand Paul, will not say the election was "not stolen." In fact, it seems impossible for any reasonable person to conclude with certainty that it was not. There is much to suggest it was. But it’s very important to understand the world of difference between saying the election was not stolen and NOT saying the election WAS stolen.

To say the election was not stolen is exactly what the Leftist Inquisition demands –- professing and clinging to an unfailing orthodox belief that it wasn’t stolen, even though no one can prove it wasn’t. Ironically, this requires a huge leap of faith from the generally-secular left. On the other hand, they don’t have to prove it wasn’t stolen. The burden is on us to prove otherwise.

For months in this newsletter, we’ve carefully outlined every last detail of the unholy mess that was the 2020 election. Some allegations were absolutely confirmed, such as Wisconsin’s illegal use of unsupervised dropboxes –- more on that below –- and others remain unconfirmed, such as the alleged vulnerabilities of Dominion voting machines. We’ve stayed extremely factual, covering a complex situation involving a variety of highly suspect activities in several key states. We can definitely say there were degrees of error, illegality and outright fraud. And much of this appears to have been carefully targeted.

We also believe the Supreme Court should have addressed issues that they failed to, particularly in the largest suit brought first by Texas. But so far, we can’t prove that President Trump would otherwise have won, although what we have seen and certain statistical anomalies strongly suggest it.

With all respect, William, your insistence that I use the exact word “stolen” to describe the election is a little like George Stephanopoulos’ insistence that Rand Paul use “not stolen.” There’s a certain reality now that we have to take into account if we want to deal with the new administration’s attempts to unconstitutionally shut down their opposition. I assure you, they are quite serious about doing that.

In other words, we have to fight smart. No, William, I have not acquiesced –- not even close. I want to thank you again for writing, and also to use your letter as a lead-in to another discussion of how the left put their thumb (the left one, naturally) on the election scales. You see, I can’t prove the Democrats are guilty of stealing the 2020 election, but I can say without reservation that what they’re doing now to take control of future elections makes them look very guilty indeed. As we wrote on Monday, the various provisions in HR-1 elevate cheating to an art form. That’s why I’ve dubbed it “the Destruction of Democracy Act of 2021.” It’s hard to imagine them crafting a bill like this if they weren’t planning to use it to, in effect, legalize their own cheating in its many forms.

And a new report from the Amistad Project shows their tactics for what they are.

This scheme involves the funding by Mark Zuckerberg of an organization called the Center for Tech and Civic Life, which we've reported on in detail. The issue here is how much control private companies, throwing vast sums of money around, should be allowed to have over American elections. The executive summary of this report is a must-read.

"Funded by hundreds of millions of dollars from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and other high-tech interests, activist organizations created a two-tiered election system that treated voters differently depending on whether they lived in Democrat or Republican strongholds,” the report says.

Read about how the CTCL operated in Wisconsin by granting money to targeted cities under what was called “the Wisconsin Safe Election Plan.” Under this plan, the CTCL retained the right, under its grant document, to ORDER ALL FUNDS RETURNED if the cities that got the money “did not conduct the election consistent with CTCL dictates.” It was that money that paid for all those unsupervised dropboxes the CTCL wanted placed around in specific locations, without approval of the state legislature. Who was running this election, anyway?

It occurs to me that the Democrats and leftist groups went to so much trouble and spent so much money to arrange all this, why else would they have done it if it weren’t to make, um...sure...Biden won? A little, you know...insurance...at the very least? Can even George Stephanopoulos look at a report like this and seriously say HE'S absolutely certain the election wasn’t stolen?

Impeachment II

By Mike Huckabee

If I haven’t taken “Impeachment II: TDS Boogaloo” seriously as a sequel to last year’s impeachment, it’s because it doesn’t deserve to be. Most sequels fall short of the original, but then, most originals that spawn sequels are at least marginally good. This sequel combines all of the original’s blatant partisanship and lack of grounds with even further deficits, like an absence of due process and a plot that’s completely ridiculous (“They’re going to impeach a President…who left office a month ago!”) It makes “Weekend at Bernie’s II” look like “Citizen Kane.” It’s the kind of sequel that emits such a stench that the studios won’t even let critics see it in advance.

On Monday, the stink of illegitimacy got even stronger with news that Chief Justice John Roberts had declined to preside over the Senate “impeachment” trial. The quotes are because the Constitution requires the Chief Justice to preside over Presidential impeachment trials. Even if Roberts didn’t explain why, it’s clear from his refusal that this is not a legitimate Presidential impeachment trial. If it were, Roberts would have to preside. If he doesn’t, then it’s either illegitimate in the eyes of the SCOTUS, or it’s an acknowledgement that Trump isn’t President anymore, and the Senate can’t impeach a private citizen.

Instead, Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy, a far-left partisan who’s already voted to impeach Trump once and has lately been tweeting about how guilty Trump is, will preside. Of course, he’s now insisting that he will be completely fair and impartial, which at least makes this bad sequel funnier than “Weekend at Bernie’s II.”

Meanwhile, Senate Republicans are hearing from their constituents, looking at mounting evidence that the Capitol riot was planned well in advance of the Trump speech that Democrats blamed it on, and just considering the embarrassing spectacle of wasting precious time while the American people are suffering from the endless pandemic lockdowns on a “stupid” and “counterproductive” (Marco Rubio’s words) partisan circus and saying, “No thanks."

The Democrats need 17 Republican votes to reach the two-thirds majority necessary to “impeach” a President who left office over a month before. Anyone want to bet the farm that there are that many GOP Senators who want to be as popular with the base as Mitt Romney is?

    On your article Impeachment Part II You forgot one very important item that has come to my mind the last couple of days (last week)! While we play games in the Senate and the House is not in session! Pres Biden issues Executive Orders so fast, that will destroy every aspect of our country, and definitely try to undo every thing Pres Trump did, it makes our heads spin. Congress has no time to handle deal with everything on it's plate right now. I hope they take the approving of Biden's cabinet off the Table until things calm down. America is spinning out of control so quickly in this new administration! And all were doing is discussing whether another unlawful impeachment will take place. This is about the least important thing on the senate's plate right now unless the entire government is planning on letting Pres Biden rule with Executive orders! Then we are destroyed as a Country!

    I would just quibble with Huck on one point regarding where the burden of proof lies with how the election was handled by certain states. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the burden of proof lies with those altering election laws to prove that the new rules they implemented resulted in an honest vote count. If they are unable to produce evidence that there was no ballot stuffing or machine issues, then they've failed in their stakeholder responsibilities.

    For this reason, the election results from PA, WI, MI and GA should have been sent back to the state legislaturers to audit the votes from those states.

    Wishful thinking:
    1. Why was Biden allowed to run for presidency when the FBI apparently had Hunter's laptop one year prior to the election? Crickets so far from Durham, the DOJ and the FBI.
    2. Why wasn't Biden's doctor criticized for stating that President Biden is mentally and physically fit enough to be president? Show us the score of his dementia test that any competent doctor would have given a man of Biden's age.
    3. Apparently Kamala Harris has associated with Marxists like her father and socialists, communists, etc. for many years. The enemies of our country are these very people, so can we say conflict of interest?
    4. Whoever vetted those running for president and vice president should be fired.

    I must respectfully differ with your assessment that the election was not "stolen" or at least "subverted"
    There are verbatim videos (ie. Ga.) folks pushing "hidden" ballots through(MORE THAN ONCE)--you may think this is not evidence--if you don't, you would be relegated to the crooked justice system that refused to even HEAR the evidence. REFUSAL to even hear evidence DOES NOT CONSTITUTE NO evidence--it is a failing of the corrupt justice system.--
    -"photoshopping" a still picture is common--that is not possible with a video without detecting the inherent "jerks" in the video stream---my "movie Maker" software detected none of these "jerks" or "glitches"--I can only assume these are real---
    The statistics are overwhelmingly compelling - as for Pa.--you CANNOT flip a coin 128,000 times and have it come up heads(or tails) every single time--it can't happen.-----so yes, I don't believe you believe this election was not stolen--it was engineered from day one--biden himself admitted he had the best voter fraud going(maybe a Freudian slip?)--he waited in his hole while the operatives did their thing.

    Mike, I am a big fan of your newsletter and the show on TBS. I am thrilled to see Sarah is running for Governor of Arkansas. I don't live there but I do work there and I am so hopeful that she is victorious in her effort. My purpose in writing has to do with the coronavirus and how it has been so deceitfully presented to the American people. I have no doubt the virus can be dangerous and even deadly to the already identified vulnerable populations, What I see developing in the near future regarding case counts and deaths due to coronavirus has me concerned. I am so proud of President Trump's Warp Speed program to find a vaccine and cure for Covid. Here is what I have noticed since Biden took office. They are now developing a new Covid test so there will be fewer false positives. I see they will use this to declare the Biden admin. is gaining victory over Covid. As another measure, I believe they are going to tighten the Covid death diagnosis to only show those that have actually died from Covid and not those with Covid. I believe they will wait to enact that one until they no longer feel the need to control people with the lockdowns. This whole thing has been so blown out of proportion in an attempt to make Trump look bad and to try to instill such fear into the American people that they acquiesce to any crazy demands they can think of. I am hopeful that someone who has an audience will be aware of this attempt to further deceive the people. Thanks for reading my comment. It's is nice to feel I have a voice.

    Thank you for your work & your ability, and congratulations to your daughter--may she win her election!
    You said that Chief Justice John Roberts has declined to preside over the Senate "trial" of Mr. Trump's second "Impeachment". GOOD NEWS!!
    That has to end the impeachment trial before it even starts. See the United States Constitution, Article I, Section 3. It has words to the effect that when the President is impeached the Chief Justice shall preside over the Senate trial. So there can be no impeachment trial as long as Chief Justice Roberts stands strong, & is not bought off (which could be hard to do!)

    Gov. First kudo's to Ms. Sarah for going all out. Know you got to be proud.
    Second - will someone explain to me why no one and I mean no one is making efforts to get to the bottom of this election fiasco. After 80 filings and 50 turned down, (because judges are either comatose, brain dead or just plain lazy), including this fiasco called a Supreme Court. Is anyone going to ever investigate this and make change to 2022 or are we as I suspect will see the final nail in the coffin of the United States of America. Where is Lindsay Graham investigation he promised. Oh I forgot he got re-elected so don't have time now. Anyway who would be the person or group to get this started?

    Thanks - luv the show.

    Well, if we can impeach after a President leaves office, let's impeach former Pres. Obama! Lots to go on there. Or, lets not stop there; how about a dead former President - why not? - say Theodore Roosevelt - he ran for a 3rd term, when he knew that was not the done thing! It would point out the idiocy of this current ludicrous action.

    "....I can’t prove the Democrats are guilty of stealing the 2020 election...." I would suggest that it was too late to prove much of anything after the failure of Republicans to legally on-time object to states changing their election laws by any means available! After the election that showed discrepancies, our vaunted (not) FBI FAILED to lock down ALL those Dominion machines for a forensic investigation, since nearly every state used those machines, that would have been one clear proof of fraud! How fast were those machines wiped clean, and not with just a cloth? There was one machine in at least one state that contained records of prior elections, and though used in this election, there were NO records!

    Perhaps the tell-tale stat proving this was a far-fetched farce of a presidential election was the fact that only 0.3% (3/10th of 1%) of all ballots were not accepted! The national average for rejected ballots throughout American history is +-3%. A first-time mail-in ballot election has to be the GOAT for correctness, or in my military mind, PERFECTION. My favorite legal alien from the planet Vulcan, Mr. Spock, made his usual response when considering most things human, the American presidential election was ILLOGICAL!

    01/26/2021 04:52 PM

    Thank you for your lengthy answer to the letter you received from William about the election appearing stolen. If I may say it that way. What I don't understand is Antrim County machines were proven by forensic audit to have switched votes and that it was absolutely not human error or entry as the SOS stated. And the "glitch" changed the winner from Trump to Biden. As I understand it the glitch was corrected after it was caught. This is also much of what happened in other swing states (and Va.) but no one suspects other machines did the same thing? Why are no Republicans demanding every Dominion machine be forensically audited? It is highly unlikely this only happened in one precinct and the public data (that was NYT feed during election) shows numerous times Trump votes decreasing and Biden votes increasing on live television. But no one wants to prove it did or didn't happen elsewhere?

    This isn't about Trump, it's about election integrity and if this fraud is allowed to pass we will simply be another Venezuela with no need to ever vote again. More so if HR1 goes through. Democrats wil simply choose whomever they want as president. Is this the end of our Republic and true democracy? Is there another solution. Can all the red states "simply" secede from the US and form their own government?

    This election showed the "deep state" is far deeper, and wider, than anyone ever could have imagined. Especially once you add big tech desperate to keep their 230 protections.

He is a special person and I pray that he will find a way to come back. Any Republican that does not protect and defend President Trump does not deserve another term. I pray that the deception comes to light. Thanks, Candy Cary
