Fwd: Mike Huckabee My thoughts on the election

Bsd

Thank you Mike Huckabee for standing by Donald Trump! Since Trump surrounds himself with G-d fearing people like yourself this has calmed people fears and brought us hope for a better tomorrow!

May G-d Bless the President elect of the USA and may G-d Bless America, Israel and the entire Universe!

Robin,

It's morning in America. The sun is shining, the birds are singing. But wait, how is that possible? Donald Trump is President-elect! We were assured that if that happened, the sky would blacken, there would be mass hysteria and the planet would immediately be immolated in a fiery, nuclear ball of death! Or something like that. Maybe I've been reading too much HuffPo.

Instead, the sun somehow seems to be shining more brightly and the birds singing a bit more sweetly. Or perhaps it just seems that way to me.

Just as I have been predicting for months, Donald Trump not only won, he scored a much bigger victory than even most supporters imagined. He gave a remarkably magnanimous and statesmanlike acceptance speech (see it at the link if you weren't up late enough to watch history being made live). He also didn't destroy the GOP down-ticket, as panicky Republicans feared (the only Republicans who got shellacked were turncoats who distanced themselves from Trump). The GOP held on to both the House and Senate, which means Trump should have a much easier time cutting deals for long-blocked, desperately-needed legislation, like repealing and replacing Obamacare. And he can appoint judges who respect the Constitution.

We now have to brace ourselves for the inevitable shirt-rending from the media: "How could America elect Donald Trump?! What does this MEEEEEAN?!"

Well, I'll tell you what it doesn't mean. It doesn't mean that most Americans are racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic deplorables, as Hillary suggested.

What it does mean is that a lot of Americans are fed up with failed Obama policies, both foreign and domestic; with an overreaching federal government trying to run every aspect of their lives; with representatives who seem to represent big money donors and shadowy billionaires like George Soros more than the people who elected them; with wealthy celebrities looking down on them and calling them bigots and haters just for having religious beliefs, morals, patriotism, pride in their traditions and a belief that laws should be respected; and with an unequal system of justice that gives the well-connected a pass for infractions that send regular citizens to prison.

And we're tired of hearing that America is not exceptional, that our laws and culture and Constitution are nothing special, that we're just one more vote at the UN -- when we know that America is the "shining city on the hill" that people from all those other nations and cultures gladly risk their lives to be part of.

Americans tried to tell Washington this in previous elections, with things like the Tea Party movement, only to be insulted, belittled and targeted by the IRS. But you can only sit on a pressure cooker so long before it blows you sky high.

Another bit of meaning you can take from this election: despite all the efforts of politicians, consultants and media elites to separate Americans into little boxes, we refuse to be so easily categorized. Self-proclaimed experts assumed that women would vote for Hillary because she's a woman, or Hispanics would vote against Trump because he wants to secure the border, or blacks would vote for Democrats because…well, because they're black, and they're supposed to! Turns out that women care about a range of issues other than gender identity, the vast majority of Hispanic immigrants believe in obeying the law, and many black voters don't like being taken for granted. Democrats learned to their shock that demographic changes don't mean they can just sit back and enjoy a permanent majority. Maybe the idea that women and non-white voters will automatically pull the "D" lever just because of their sex and race is…gasp…sexist and racist!

Finally, this election proved that what Americans have in common is much greater than our differences. All our differences aside, most of us love and want to preserve the things that made America great: the Constitution, the rule of law, the American Dream that our children will live better lives than we did, equality, fairness, opportunity to succeed for all who are willing to work hard, and a government that serves the people, not the other way around. Tuesday, we rose up as one and said, "We want that America back. Make America great again."

Sincerely,

Mike Huckabee

Media Stunned

By Mike Huckabee

For a lot of Trump supporters, almost as sweet as his victory was the stunned expressions of liberals on TV who couldn't believe that their already-anointed queen Hillary Clinton had just lost the White House to Donald Trump. Having owned the media that turned the news into a Democratic PR machine, they made the mistake of believing their own publicity. Throughout the night, the theme was repeated: "Nobody saw this shocker coming!"

Uh, excuse me! Not to toot my own horn, but I've been predicting a big Trump win for months. Even when his polls were down, I stuck by that. Why? Because unlike all those media, Hollywood and Wall Street savants, I talk to real people. I've been warning the elites of the widening divide between them and the folks in "Flyover Country" for years, that the people who sweat and lift heavy things for a paycheck were getting fed up with being insulted and talked down to by their alleged representatives, and seeing powerful elites get away with things that would land them in jail. I even brought out a book warning about the growing divide between the government and the governed nearly two years ago. It was called "God, Guns, Grits and Gravy" ( see the link to purchase this entertaining, enlightening and downright psychic tome).

Funny that last night, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, shocked and baffled by Trump's win, wrote, "What we do know is that people like me, and probably like most readers of The New York Times, truly didn't understand the country we live in." No, you truly didn't. It was easier just to sneer and snark, to insult and impugn. You didn't even want to learn why your countrymen were hurting. Now, you have no choice. To catch up in a hurry, I suggest Mr. Krugman and his cohorts in the Times bubble read "God, Guns, Grits and Gravy." And if it makes it any easier, just remind yourselves that it was a New York Times bestseller.

A bedtime story

By Mike Huckabee

While I'm certainly overjoyed at Donald Trump's win and what it means for protecting the Constitution and the rule of law, restoring American leadership and helping our veterans, I have to admit that I feel a bit sorry for some of Hillary Clinton's young supporters. It's hard to see their crushed, tearful faces in the photos at the link and not feel some sympathy for this blow to their misguided youthful idealism. It's always hard to lose an election, especially your first. 

And because I feel bad for them, I thought I'd share a bedtime story that might help them forget their grief and fears and rest a little easier:

Once upon a time, there was a Democratic President who was widely regarded as a failure. His economy didn't create jobs, and his weakness in foreign policy had other nations thumbing their noses at America, particularly Iran and Russia. There was no way that the Democrats could hope to hold the White House by running on his record.

Fortunately, they lucked out. Republican voters ignored their appalled patrician leaders and nominated an outsider candidate with no Washington experience. He would be easy to beat: with the help of the liberal media, he was demonized as a dangerous, frightening, wild-eyed, far-right loon who was going to crash the economy, start World War III and nuke the planet. A famous editorial cartoon even depicted Death with this Republican's instantly-recognizable hairstyle on his skull, playing a game of chess with terrified soldiers as game pieces while a mushroom cloud rose behind him. Scariest of all, this dangerous, unqualified, unstable nutjob shocked the elites by actually winning the Presidency!

That Republican was Ronald Reagan. He not only didn't start World War III and fire off nukes, he ended the Cold War and brought down the Soviet Union and the Berlin Wall without firing a shot, greatly reducing the threat of nuclear confrontation. And he didn't crash the economy at all. In fact, he set in motion an economic boom so strong and long-lasting that years after Reagan left office, Bill Clinton was still taking bows for it.

The moral of the story: Don't believe everything you read. And if you read it in places like the Huffington Post, Salon or the New York Times editorial page, don't believe anything you read.

Now, pleasant dreams! And don't worry: the world will still be here when you wake up.
