DAILY BIBLE VERSE
This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
1. Senator Pete Ricketts
By Mike Huckabee
As expected, the new Governor of Nebraska, Jim Pillen, appointed his predecessor, Pete Ricketts, to fill the remaining term of departing Senator Ben Sasse. They’re all Republicans, so this doesn’t affect the party makeup of the Senate. There will be a special election in 2024 to elect someone to that seat.
Hypocritical calls from the left for Republican Rep. George Santos to resign for being a Joe Biden-style serial fabulist are not going over as well as they’d hoped. Speaker McCarthy seems unwilling to fall into the trap of enforcing the usual double standard that only applies to Republicans.
I stand by my previous statement on this: Santos should resign and leave DC, but only when all the other politicians who lied and misled voters join him in resigning, along with all the media members and bureaucrats who helped them by lying, hiding information before elections and misleading voters. That should reduce the size of the government and the DC media by least 50 percent, which could only be a good thing.

3. What happens when you vote Democrat
In 2020, New Yorkers voted for Biden by nearly 61%. Hope they’re enjoying the results.
Well, at least I’m sure the New York City rats are enjoying all the taxpayer-provided food being thrown out by the illegal immigrants who are being given free rooms in hotels that they’re trashing.

I don’t think it’s possible to find a more perfect example of clueless liberal Hollywood elitism than this. Uber-left movie actor Mark Ruffalo took to Twitter to chide those silly conservatives who oppose banning gas ranges by pointing out the simple solution that he’s found. Just buy an induction range (which can cost up to twice what a gas range costs, or as much as $4400) and some special $200 apiece pans that work on it. Problem solved, peasants! Now if you don't have bread, go eat some induction oven cake!
5. Memo to House GOP Investigators
By Mike Huckabee
A study of the midterm election results by the former editor of Psychology Today found that the red wave might have been blunted largely by Google. The study accuses the search engine giant of using “ephemeral experiences,” or subtle manipulation techniques such as biased search results and targeted voting reminders to switch as many as 80 million votes to Democrats across the nation. In very tight elections, shifting just one percent of the vote or less could have determined the winner.
Of course, there are those who will deny that Google is biased. They say if its search results tend to lean left, that’s just the algorithm (is it a coincidence that tech companies always deny liberal bias by pointing to a word that actually has Al Gore’s name in it?)
For instance, this article has a list of six alternatives to Google, such as DuckDuckGo.
It notes that while most people don’t think Google is politically biased, one out of four conservatives do. I’m surprised it’s that low. One could argue that that’s just a testament to how well Google hides its bias, except from people who are sensitized to notice it. The article shows how a Google search for Andy Ngo returns articles from lefty sites like Rolling Stone slamming him as a rightwing troll, while DuckDuckGo returns biographical info and a New York Post article about his invaluable reporting on the violent radical left group, Antifa.
This obvious bias is explained away by claiming that Google’s “Al Gore Rhythm” (editor’s note: Al Gore has no rhythm) simply links to the most “authoritative sources,” defined by how many links there are to that site from other “authoritative sources.” I bet you can spot the problem immediately: if you classify other biased leftist media sites as “authoritative sources” and not conservative news sites, then you create a biased feedback loop of leftists linking back to other leftists, and that inflates a bubble of bias that’s falsely cited as evidence of reliability.
But anyone with common sense knows that the last thing in the world you could call Rolling Stone is an “authoritative source.” Never mind all the fake news they’ve pushed recently, just look at their music lists, like “The 200 Greatest Singers of All Time,” where Bob Dylan ranks higher than Frank Sinatra. It’s clear that they don’t even know the one subject they’re supposed to know.
So if you don’t want search results that come from leftists (but you’re assured they’re not biased because other leftists say they aren’t), then skedaddle away from Google and use another search engine.
I JUST WANTED TO SAY:
