I’ve always said that, in general, it’s best not to vote early because you never know what might come out that would make you want to change your vote. Voters should have as much to go on as possible before they cast a ballot. This, time, though, Janet and I were so sure nothing would change our minds that we went ahead, so we’ve already voted.

Heck, I figured that if I died between now and Election Day, I’d want my vote to count as much as those of all the dead Democrats who’ve already voted. (Rim shot!)

But seriously, folks...

According to the NEW YORK POST –- you know, that venerable paper suddenly being dismissed as a “tabloid” –- some people are sorry they cast their ballots early after seeing the Hunter Biden laptop stories about corrupt foreign businesses and even the Chinese Communist Party buying influence through the Biden name. That’s right: even though the mainstream news and social media have ignored the story and even shut down the POST’s reporting, damaging their own reputation in the process, voters are finding out anyway and getting a big case of buyer’s remorse.

Incredibly, over 58.5 million people have already voted. But according to Google Trends data, searches for “Can I change my vote?” have been trending over the past few days, linked to searches for “Hunter Biden.”

So, CAN you change your vote? It depends on what state you’re in. The most interest in vote-changing seems to be coming from Arizona, Tennessee and Virginia, but voters there are out of luck, as those states –- and most others –- give them just one shot at not screwing up. Hey, they should’ve realized they were supporting a habitually lying, feeble-minded, touchy-feely, hair-sniffing, sold-to-foreign-corporations-and-the-CCP, corrupt politician BEFORE they cast their ballots. Now, it’s too late. I sure wish they’d waited.

But good news for absentee voters in New York State: you actually can change your ballot. (That doesn’t hold true for just regular mail-in ballots, which is another problem with mail-in ballots as opposed to absentee.) The rules state, “Even if you request or cast and return an absentee ballot, you may still go to the polls and vote in person.” But that doesn’t mean you can game the system to vote twice, even if you’re a Democrat, ha. The rules continue: “The Board of Elections is required to check the poll book before canvassing any absentee ballot. If the voter comes to the poll site, on Election Day or during early voting, and votes in person, the absentee ballot is set aside and not counted.”

But if you voted early in person, forget about changing your vote. You cannot go back and vote by machine again.

Michigan, Minnesota, Washington and Wisconsin also allow absentee voters the chance to re-vote. For some reason, the voters of Wisconsin have THREE chances to get it right. Gee, maybe people who are that indecisive on candidates as different as Trump and Biden should just stay home, or enter a mental institution.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission says they’ve been contacted by “many voters” to see if they can revoke their original absentee ballots. By all means, yes, do it! You couldn’t possibly be wanting to change from Trump to Biden. After what we know now about “the real Joe Biden,” who on earth would do that? One thing about Trump, he’s always been just who he is. Plus, he’s been investigated six ways from Sunday and we know he hasn’t sold out to ANYONE.

If you live in one of those states and, by some chance, have just started reading the HUCKABEE newsletter or some other trustworthy source of news and opinion, and you’ve had that “Aha!” moment and know you need to change your vote to Trump, please get in touch with your state elections commission and see about doing it. (Sorry, Minnesota voters, you could have changed it earlier, but they won't let you now.)

In the vast majority of states, you’re stuck with your early-voting choice, and that’s why the DNC really has been pushing for Democrats to vote early (and often, ha!). Their strategy is just to get Biden across the finish line, which is hard enough for a man of his frailty even without all the baggage he’s carrying. There’s so much scandal weighing down those bags, he still might not make it. But Facebook and Twitter are doing all they can to help him.

As we’ve noted, the CEOs of Facebook and Twitter are scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee in November –- but this won’t happen till AFTER Election Day. Between now and November 3, they apparently will be unencumbered in their efforts to shut down reporting on 1) election fraud, 2) anything they deem “disinformation” and 3) the very real, non-Russian-disinformation Biden family scandal. The best way to handle this situation for now: stop using Facebook and Twitter as sources of news! They’re not your gatekeeper. Leave them in the dust. If Twitter shuts you down, go to Parler and get your friends on it, too.

The Hunter Biden emails should make anyone but the most radical, beyond-hope, Trump-hating leftist want a fresh ballot. No one denies these are real. As Mollie Hemingway told Laura Ingraham on Monday night, “We have an eyewitness [former Biden business partner Tony Bobulinski] to Joe Biden talking about Hunter Biden’s business...he has evidence in support of the claim, and it matches with contemporaneous evidence about where Joe Biden was on a particular date back in 2017, and the media are pretending like there’s no need to cover this, even though Joe Biden is caught here in a lie about whether he ever discussed foreign business with Hunter Biden.”

Oh, and there’s so much more to this. My staff and I have been going through other emails and feel like sparing you some of the especially sad and sordid ones. They reflect not just sleazy and illegal behavior –- which Joe apparently was aware of –- but also a kind of desperation, as Hunter tried to peddle White House influence with other wealthy foreigners. The Biden name was really all he had, and it seems he was aware of that.

Though I’m not a family therapist, I did counsel troubled families when I was a pastor, and it seems this family has been in need for a long time. Hunter apparently has had some professional help, but this family’s ongoing story is still such a sad one. There seems to have been a lot of denial and covering up, from Hunter’s needs to his father’s slowly fading mind. We may never know, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Hunter, in some part of himself, meant to leave that laptop behind. Joe Biden is a candidate with a lot of problems –- personal, ethical, and potentially legal –- and we are dangerously close to having these problems become America’s.

It’s too bad more of those early voters can’t change their votes.

RESPONDING TO A FALSE CHARGE

The Biden campaign continues to make the false charge that President Trump has never condemned white supremacists, so the Trump campaign released a five-minute ad showing Trump publicly condemning white supremacists on 38 separate occasions.

The ad notes, "Joe Biden has never condemned the KKK but did praise a former KKK Exalted Cyclops as his 'mentor.’” Also, I’m still waiting for the Democrats to formally apologize for starting the Civil War to preserve slavery and for assassinating the Republican President who ended it.

POSSIBLE ELECTION INDICATOR?

When you type “How do” into the DuckDuckGo search engine, the autofill suggests the #1 most common question people are asking at the moment: “…I change my vote?”

GREAT QUESTION FROM A READER

“If Joe Biden thinks fossil fuels are so evil that the entire industry needs to be exterminated, why was he fine with his son being on the board of a Ukrainian oil and gas company?”

PERFECT HEADLINE

Perfect Political Headline of the Day! From the Washington Free Beacon: (North Carolina Senate Candidate) “Cal Cunningham Refuses to Take Position on Joe Biden’s Refusal to Take Position on Court Packing.”

MUST-SEE POLITICAL AD

The heroes who stopped two church shootings in Texas with their own weapons directly address Joe Biden and his “insane” gun control plans. Somehow, I get the feeling these guys are more representative of Texas than the person Biden wants to put in charge of gun laws: “Beto” O’Rourke.

TRUSTING THE EXPERTS

Joe Biden and his surrogates in politics and the media continue to blame President Trump for every last one of the approximately 220,000 COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus deaths. They claim that he completely botched the response, but they would have handled it much better by “listening to the experts,” even though the experts themselves are still trying to figure out exactly how the virus works and how to deal with it.

So why don’t we let one of those experts that they trust assess how well Trump handled the virus? I’ve mentioned this before, but Matt Margolis at PJ Media goes into even more detail: Early on in the pandemic, Dr. Deborah Birx, one of the top medical experts coordinating the fight against the virus, warned, “If we do things together well, almost perfectly, we could get in the range of 100,000 to 200,000 fatalities.”

I guess they’re accusing Trump of horribly botching the response because it wouldn’t drive as many votes as accusing him of falling slightly short of “almost perfect.” Incidentally, to have reached the goal of perfection, he would have needed to prevent the largest share of deaths in any state by overstepping his powers and taking the virus response in New York away from Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Sarah Hoyt of PJ Media is a naturalized US citizen who knows what it’s like to live somewhere else, which makes her love America all the more. She has a dire warning for voters: the left is weaponizing the inherent decency and empathy of Americans against us to destroy us.

WHO ARE YOU GONNA BELIEVE

When it comes to whether Joe Biden will ban fracking, who are you gonna believe: YouTube’s professional “fact-checkers” or your own lying ears?

EXPERTS

“Listen To The Experts!” Scott Johnson at the Powerline blog noticed a discrepancy between what Minnesota’s Infectious Disease Director Kris Ehresmann said about the fatality rate of the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus in the state and the actual numbers.

Last week, Ehresmann said that the percentage of Minnesotans who had one of seven serious underlying conditions (chronic lung disease, severe obesity, diabetes, etc.) when they died of COVID-19 was now less than half, suggesting that it was killing younger, healthier people. But when the office got back to the reporter with the actual numbers as of October 21st, the percentage of fatalities with known underlying conditions was 94%. In another 4%, it was unknown. A whopping 2% definitely had only COVID-19.

Where I come from, 94-98% is not “less than half.” I can see why Democrats who want to keep their economies locked down and suffering until after the election listen to their own “health experts” but don’t seem to care much for mathematicians.

YOUR WEDNESDAY FAKE NEWS

Your Wednesday Fake News: No, the Trump campaign hasn’t pulled all its ads from Florida, as claimed by Bloomberg News. They have massive ad buys in Florida through Election Day, but the payee on much of it is listed as the RNC. The Trump campaign called the story “horribly wrong” and “sloppy reporting at the highest level,” and said it should be retracted.

Just FYI: Bloomberg News was founded by failed Democratic Presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg, who vowed to pour $50 million of his own money into Florida ads to try to win it for Biden and the Democrats. Let's hope they're as effective as his "Mike can get it done" Presidential ads.

When you hear Democrats decrying how awful it is that “billionaires are buying elections,” remember that they think it’s okay when it’s their billionaires buying elections for them.

DAILY BIBLE VERSE

NOTE: Because the following story relates to the Biden “family business” scandal, it should be mentioned once again that this is NOT Russian disinformation.

Tucker Carlson had an exclusive interview Tuesday night with former Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski, who was recruited by the Bidens to “do the math” and structure their deals. He said he has to come forward out of his patriotic duty, having nothing to gain except to salvage his own good name, as he’s being tarred, ridiculously, as an agent of “Russian disinformation.”

One might ask, “Well, why is he going on FOX NEWS to do this?” The answer: Virtually everyone else is ignoring this story. Where else is he going to go?

As Tucker said, “Never in American history have more power centers in this country aligned to kill a legitimate news story in the days before an election.” He hinted at “an extraordinary attempt” made Monday night to to interfere with FOX News’ reporting of the Biden story and said details would be coming.

The main point Tucker wanted to make with the Bobulinski interview is that this scandal is not about Hunter Biden, but about JOE Biden, the Democrat who might be elected President of the United States in a matter of days. “Joe Biden,” Tucker said, “had direct personal involvement with his family’s business dealings in Communist China, and likely in other countries as well.”

And it’s true. Joe Biden denies he ever even spoke to his son about those foreign deals, but we know without a doubt that he is lying. There’s plenty of evidence documenting this.

Tucker’s interview with Bobulinski took place in a Los Angeles hotel room on Tuesday afternoon.

As the story unfolds, Bobulinski received a proposal on Christmas Eve 2015 from English businessman James Gilliar in a text saying, “There will be a deal between one of the most prominent families from US and them constructed by me.” This was the deal involving Chinese energy company CEFC. A lot of work had apparently been done during 2015 to put this deal together, and it was moving forward. “One of the most prominent families” was the Biden family --- not Hunter or James, but the “entire family legacy,” meaning, OF COURSE, Vice President Joe Biden.

Moving forward to 2017, Bobulinski was asked by Rob Walker, who was a partner in the Biden-connected investment firm Rosemont Seneca and had been working to develop the CEFC deal, to “sit down with their father [Joe Biden], just to meet him and, at a high level, discuss the Biden family and how they approached things.” He added that Walker was involved in the family’s participation with the Chinese in Sinohawk and was a self-described “proxy” for the Biden family around the world.

Bobulinski and Joe Biden met very late on May 2, 2017, in Los Angeles in a dark bar (which struck him as surreptitious) at the Beverly Hilton during the Milken Conference, which he described as “one of the top three conferences in the world for anybody that’s a global investor or developing different humanitarian causes and a variety of things.” Hunter and James had carved out a time for them to talk not so much in detail about business, but just about his own background and what he could bring to the table. “...They were sort of wining and dining me,” he said, “and presenting the strength of the Biden family, to get me more engaged [to] take on the CEO role and develop Sinohawk, both in the United States and around the world, in partnership with CEFC.”

"There was no other reason for me to be in that bar,” he said, “meeting Joe Biden, than to discuss what I was doing with his family’s name in the Chinese CEFC.

This was direct involvement in the “family business” on the part of Joe Biden –- so it was a blatant lie that he never discussed it with Hunter.

Recall that Bobulinski attended the last debate between Biden and President Trump. He told Tucker that when Biden was still denying his involvement during the debate, he almost stood up and yelled, “Liar!” He stressed that he had just been “brought in to run this company,” was personally “irrelevant,” and had “been exposed to all of this fact” and believes “the American people should see this fact.” He’s got dates, times, meetings, and many emails generated not by him, but by others within the business. “The FBI can interview THEM,” he said.

"But I was shocked,” he continued, “that not only is the media [not] discussing this, but they’re going to the other extreme –- they’re dismissing it as ‘Russian disinformation’...it’s just absurd.”

He’d much prefer the Biden family present these facts, but they obviously won’t, and when he told Rob Walker he would do it, Walker told him, “Tony. You’re just gonna bury all of us man.”

As he described it to Tucker, his initial meeting with Joe Biden was mostly an introduction, more about themselves personally than about the business. Biden thanked him for his military service. It was sort of a get-to-know-you thing, and an inducement by Hunter and James for Bobulinski to get involved in the family business.

"They were putting their entire family legacy on the line,” he said. “They knew exactly what they were doing. They were dealing with a Chinese-owned enterprise run by Chairman Ye, CEFC, that had strong financial support and political support from the Chinese Communist Party...That’s not my own words; it’s how they presented it to me and read me in on it.”

He said Hunter Biden seemed quite proud that he had this relationship with Chairman Ye and could get deals like this done around the world.

Bobulinski also talked about the now-familiar email from James Gilliar to him about “how the equity from the enterprise would be divvied up.” It’s “crystal clear” to him that “the big guy” who was supposed to get 10 percent (held by “H,” Hunter) is Joe Biden. Importantly, the final document that was drawn up hides Joe Biden’s 10 percent participation within his brother James’ share.

He said he'd anticipated that Joe Biden might run for President in the future and thought this kind of foreign involvement –- especially with the Chinese –- might be a political risk. When he asked James something like, “How are you getting away with this?” or “Aren’t you concerned…?,” James just chuckled and said two words.

"Plausible deniability.”

There’s much more. Please watch the entire interview. Bobulinski has some choice words for Adam Schiff.

In related news, Hunter Biden served as the attorney defending an executive of CEFC (cozy) who was being investigated for spying for the CCP. There’s an audio recording from Hunter’s laptop in which he says, “I have another NEW YORK TIMES reporter calling about my representation of Patrick Ho --- the [bleeping] spy-chief of China.” So we know Hunter was well aware of how murky the water was in which he swam.

Oh, and it gets worse.
