BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY
By Mike Huckabee
Join me tonight for a special episode of “Huckabee” on TBN, where my staff went to heroic efforts to put together a great show despite a historic winter storm. I’ll talk to the newest House member, Rep. Claudia Tenney, who won a months-long count and recount battle. You’ll meet a woman who felt called to change her life and has now helped over 7 million kids, and a Huck’s Hero who’s making dreams come true for senior military veterans. We’ll have more surprises, plus a song from Christian music superstar Jason Crabb.
We’ll start warming it up at 9 EST/8 CST, on TBN.

Nine Years To Go
By Mike Huckabee
Our new “climate czar” John Kerry hopped off his wife's private jet for a moment to declare that we have “only nine years left” to avoid climate catastrophe. He arrived at this by figuring that three years ago, climate scientists said we had only 12 years, “so we are absolutely, clearly, without question now inside the decisive decade.”
(Actually, AOC said we had 12 years left two years ago, then when challenged said that only someone with the “social intelligence of a sea sponge” could believe she meant that literally.)
One of the major reasons why leftist policies driven by apocalyptic predictions work on young people better than old people is because once you get to my age, you’ve already lived past so many doomsday deadlines, you start to lose count of how many times the world was going to end. I somehow managed to survive the Ice Age of the ‘70s, the dead oceans and $80-a-can tuna of the ‘80s, the broiling global warming of the ‘90s, the end of snow in the early 2000s, and the submerged cities and Siberian climate of Great Britain in 2020. The article linked above lists a number of such predictions that never came to pass, which is why we now hear only about “climate change.” That phrase makes it impossible to disprove the predictions, because climate constantly changes. So whether it gets hotter, colder, wetter, dryer or whatever, then obviously, they’re right.
This is not to claim that man can’t have an effect on the environment, just that any doomsday scenarios should be taken with a big pillar of salt, especially after some environmentalists have admitted they exaggerate to scare the public into going along with them. They also claim to be the only ones with science backing them up. But just this week, I pointed to a University of Colorado environmental professor who believes in human-affected climate change, but who is fed up with the doomsday scenarios. He says they’re all based on outdated data that we know is wrong, like the assumption that CO2 emissions would rise exponentially over the past 20 years when they actually fell (no thanks to John Kerry.)
I’ve also noticed that if you point out that the weather doesn’t seem to back up their claims, they huff that you’re a simpleton who doesn’t understand the difference between weather and climate. But every time there’s an unusual weather event, like the polar vortex that reached Texas, they point to it as an example of “climate change.” FYI: temperatures in Texas are expected to be back in the 60s by Sunday.
I’ll make John Kerry a deal: I won’t question his claim about having only nine years left to save the Earth if he agrees to buy a truckload of tuna from me for $80 a can.
What A Week
By Mike Huckabee
Many of us are snowed in from getting to Nashville. My wife and I just moved from Florida back to Little Rock to be closer to our 7 grandkids. Did we ever pick a bad time to move from Florida! 20 inches of snow with temperatures at zero this week—we’ve been stuck in our house unable to even get out of our driveway. Our little dogs who are 15 and 14 years old are snubbing us. They are traumatized by weather like this. It’s been this way all week for much of America. Snowmageddon! And we’re beginning to fully understand the implications of renewable energy in states like Texas where the wind turbines froze and left millions without electricity.
It’s got to be embarrassing for Texas, the state which produces more oil and gas and refines most of our oil to have built windmills that don’t work in the extreme cold. It’s a doggone good thing we’re experiencing global warming—without all this heating of the earth, we might be really be getting cold. But Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow a few weeks ago, so we shouldn’t be surprised to have an extended winter. How cold is it? This weather is about as cold as the shoulder Liz Cheney got when she tried to show up at a Trump rally. It’s so cold that Adam Schiff was seen with his hands in his own pockets!
At least the unconstitutional nonsense of impeachment is over. What a waste of time and our tax dollars! If this is part of the Democrats plan for Unity, they are as delusional as Mitt Romney thinking he’s the future of the Republican Party. The Democrats sought to get a President out of office after he was already out of office. No real evidence presented, no witnesses called, no due process and falsified evidence presented as fact with a slick Hollywood produced movie were just a few of the sideshows of the 2nd impeachment circus. But when Democrats decided their presented case was so weak and hopeless that they then wanted to call witnesses, the Republicans said, “Sure, sounds great—call some witnesses. We have a list of over 100, including Nancy Pelosi we will then call. Suddenly the Dems said, “We’re done.” And just like that, it was over.
It must have been awkward for Democrats who so self-righteously condemned Donald Trump’s tone to see themselves on a big TV screen TV in the Senate chamber screaming sometime violent threats to anyone who ever even voted for Donald Trump. Now that President Trump has been acquitted twice, will the Democrats find something productive to do? Probably not. They’ve become a one-trick Pony, but the trick is getting old, the Pony is ready for the glue factory and it’s just not working anymore.
Let’s hope they chill out and work on some real issues for a change. And if they need any help “chilling,” we can help them by sending them some of this outrageous snow that has paralyzed much of the country. I’ve decided they do their best work when they aren’t working at all—just leaving the rest of us alone!

There’s a lot of talk now about a “battle for the soul” of the Republican Party. If so, the first shots have already been fired, and they are rhetorical bazookas between Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and former President Trump.
McConnell started it by writing an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal in which he said he voted not guilty on impeachment because impeaching a former President is unconstitutional. But he went on to blame the violence at the Capitol on Trump and suggested he could face criminal or civil action. McConnell wrote that Trump’s “supporters stormed the Capitol because of the unhinged falsehoods he shouted into the world’s largest megaphone” and that his “behavior during and after the chaos was also unconscionable.”
One thing I’ve noticed about Trump is that while he’s often accused of launching personal attacks, I’ve seldom seen him attack someone who didn’t attack him first. Someone calls him “literally Hitler,” he punches back, and he’s accused of “lowering the tone of political discourse.” Well, he certainly punched back at McConnell, saying in a statement, “Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again. He will never do what needs to be done, or what is right for our Country. Where necessary and appropriate, I will back primary rivals who espouse Making America Great Again and our policy of America First.” And then, he gets nasty.
Tyler O’Neil at PJ Media has much more, along with understandable worries about this public brawl splitting the party and keeping Democrats in power. They must be loving this.
Both sides need to reel this in. There’s an old saying: “Don’t air your dirty laundry in public.” McConnell and Trump aren’t just airing it, they’re hurling dirty underwear in each others’ faces.
Here’s the reality: for all the talk about whether or not Trump has a future in the Republican Party, polls show the vast majority of Republican voters support him. Talking about pushing him out of the party would be like telling the host of a cocktail party that he has to leave his own house.
