BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Acts 2:38 KJV

 


Hoist By Their Own Petard

By Mike Huckabee

Some Michigan residents who don’t want to comply with Democrat edicts to wear masks if they’re not vaccinated have hit on a brilliant response. They’re saying, “I identify as fully vaccinated.”

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/matt-margolis/2021/05/25/epic-some-michigan-residents-use-transgender-logic-to-go-maskless-n1449491

How can liberal officials argue with that? If they’re going to insist that “identifying” as female makes a male genuinely female, then identifying as vaccinated must actually make you vaccinated, right? I’m really looking forward to the arguments from the “Party of Science” to try to explain why the former is true but the latter is false.


Memorial Day

By Mike Huckabee

Next Monday is Memorial Day, and with the pandemic easing, a number of observances that were canceled last year will be back this weekend. Some will have live audiences while others will still be virtual events, but you can join in via TV or the Internet. Since Memorial Day weekend is also the unofficial start of summer, I know many people will be taking advantage of their first chance in a long time to hit the beach, lakes or parks, or to shop Memorial Day sales. But please remember the real reason for this holiday: to honor the military heroes who gave their lives so that we can enjoy the freedom to celebrate this weekend.

Fox News has a round-up of some of major Memorial Day events here:

And I also have a special Memorial Day edition of “Huckabee” planned, so please be sure to join us this weekend on TBN.


Still racist?!?

By Mike Huckabee

Despite a rising number of calls for investigations into the true origins of the COVID-19 virus, the New York Times’ “health reporter” claims that anyone who suggests it might have leaked from a Chinese lab is a racist. It really makes you question things. Like, “Why should I believe any health story I read in the New York Times?”

The Left targets Chip and Joanna again

By Mike Huckabee

If there’s one thing leftists hate, it’s successful Christian conservatives who don’t bend their knee to the woke Twitter mobs. So they’ve long targeted Chris and Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper.” Their first “so what” attack on the Gaines family was for attending a church where the pastor opposed same-sex marriage. That failed to shock anyone but the terminally clueless. Now, The Hill newspaper has tried a new tack, running a hit piece that accused Chip Gaines of donating $1,000 to a school board candidate who (gasp!) opposes Critical Race Theory in schools.

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/leahbarkoukis/2021/05/26/the-hilljoanna-and-chip-gaines-n2590027

This assault blew up in their faces in two ways:

1. Anyone in their right mind should oppose Critical Race Theory in schools. It’s divisive, Marxist-derived, racist garbage that teaches children to feel shame, guilt or helplessness based on their skin color. Most parents didn’t even realize until recently that their kids were being indoctrinated with this poison, and now there’s a nationwide movement to kick it out of schools. Tennessee just became the latest entire state to ban it.

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/landonmion/2021/05/25/tennessee-governor-signs-bill-banning-critical-race-theory-n2589988

2. The school board candidate Chip Gaines donated to…is his sister.

The Hill reporters might need Chip to come to their houses with his tool belt to help remove their feet from their mouths.


Trump Interview

By Mike Huckabee

This week, former President Trump gave a wide-ranging interview to Newsmax TV. He touched on everything from social media censorship to the vaccine rollout, the border crisis and more. If you missed it, you can see it on YouTube here:

Thanks, Maxine!

By Mike Huckabee

Rep. Maxine Waters has been in Congress for 30 years, and I’m astonished to report that she’s finally accomplished something good. Of course, it was completely unintentional, but still…

https://www.judicialwatch.org/corruption-chronicles/congresss-vip-air-marshal-program-canceled-after-maxine-waters-debacle/

Last month, Waters sparked backlash when she traveled to Minneapolis to fire up the mob and try to intimidate the Derek Chauvin jury into voting guilty. In true leftist hypocrite style, while she was there to condemn the police, she demanded plenty of police protection for herself, including two Federal Air Marshals pulled off of high-risk flights just to accompany her, even though she was already covered by a four-man detail.

Her behavior was, to quote the trial judge, so abhorrent that the backlash has now caused the cancellation of Congress’ VIP Federal Air Marshal program. Until Waters, most Americans didn’t know that Congress was using dozens of FAMs as their personal security. One whistleblower said that so many air marshals were being diverted from commercial flights to protect Congress members that it “left a glaring hole in America’s air security.” After Judicial Watch exposed the program, it’s been canceled. There are now dozens of Federal Air Marshals sitting around airports, waiting for real missions.

So for the first time ever, Americans can say, “Thanks, Maxine!,” and not mean it sarcastically.

UPDATE on Facebook's covid censorship

By Mike Huckabee

Yesterday, just for fun, we offered up an exuberant thank-you to the almighty Facebook for, as of Wednesday, magnanimously allowing previously-banned speech about the Wuhan Institute of Virology as a possible source of covid-19. Until now, only the wet-market "accidental" origin hypothesis, which left the Chinese government blameless, has been allowed on FB. Now, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell has a response on the same subject that picks up where our tongue-in-cheek commentary left off.

Ironically, he responded on Twitter. Like Alan Dershowitz, he sees enormous danger in letting social media be the "speech police."

https://cnsnews.com/blog/craig-bannister/bozell-facebooks-suppression-valid-debate-covid-origins-reveals-consequences

"Facebook," Bozell said, "which claims to be fighting misinformation, essentially admitted today that THEY have been spreading misinformation for over a year. Yet another reason to remove the protections Facebook and others receive from Section 230."

The Facebook "fact"-checking program has been shown to be fraudulent, in actively suppressing valid debate on the origins of covid-19, favoring Chinese propaganda instead. This has to stop, not just with covid-19 but across the board.

And if you think this is bad about Facebook, check out what former FB employee Morgan Kahmann had to say about that company's secret --- well, formerly secret --- "Vaccine Hesitancy" algorithm. It's the latest Project Veritas video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWtnO2Li-HA

This is a strategy through which comments that are deemed, either by "robot" or by human "rater," to be "vaccine-hesitant" are suppressed on Facebook. This whistleblower's story about a program that mimics some attributes of Communist China's "social credit score" should be more than enough for us to insist on an end to social media censorship and narrative-shaping.

We've seen that what they label misinformation can turn out to be correct, and their chosen "facts" are the misinformation. For example, multiple stories over the past few days have suggested that those who've already had the virus might want to think twice before getting the vaccine and likely don't need it anyway, as they have strong natural immunity from fighting off the real infection. Uh-oh, would Facebook tag me as "vaccine-hesitant" just for passing this information along? (I'm not --- I got the vaccine.)

Even though this whistleblower was fired for speaking out, he's glad he did it, and he has a message for other staffers, about 25 percent of whom he estimates are uncomfortable with what they're doing with algorithms at Facebook and might want to go public, too: "I'd say go ahead and do it. And just think about what I said. There's a lot of blowback to telling the truth. And that's true as far as human history is concerned....Just weigh it out. Can you live with yourself for the rest of your life if you work at Facebook and you knew about this? Especially if it came out later, and you're like, 'Man, I saw that so many times. I could have said something and, I didn't."

"I have to show somebody this," he continued, "because at least, even if nothing were to come of this, and for some reason everything was scrapped, I would still think...that it was worth it...At least I tried, I tried to show somebody this."

Be sure to watch the whole video. At the end, there's a website address to visit if you would like to help Morgan and his family.



A Reader Writes Back... 

Good morning, Gov. Huckabee,

I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am to see that you use the KJV of the Bible for your daily posts! I think that’s a great thing in the day and time in which we live. It seems that nowadays a new translation or paraphrase comes out every month!

As a fairly new subscriber, I have not seen your position on climate change. Today’s scripture made me think about it. I am certain that you have commented on it before, and I just missed it.

I want to thank you for your stand and for the common sense you use in presenting the truth. May the Lord continue to bless you and your family. I hope that Sarah wins by a landslide!!

    These people whining that they are getting " too many appeals for money" and the "tactics" are ect ect ect
    I am not so sure these are not Blue Reichers trying to get us to stop giving.
    Like it or not Politics takes money and we Republicans and Patriots are getting huge "donations" from these Leftist Billionaires.

    Don't you think you should share this bit from President Trump with all Patriots :

    Ronald Reagan would not be happy to see that the Reagan Library is run by the head of the Washington Post, Fred Ryan. How the hell did that happen? No wonder they consistently have RINO speakers like Karl Rove and Paul Ryan. They do nothing for our forward-surging Republican Party!

    They have also, Mike, scheduled Paul (Rino) Ryan and Nancy Pelosi (the booze and botox granny) to speak !!

    Dear Mike, the covid jab is not a vaccine. After getting the jab, and even if you are "fully vaccinated" you can still get covid. A vaccine fully prevents the disease, this jab does not fully prevent covid. I enjoy your newsletter very much!

    Speaking of "identifying as" - this past week, Boeing employees received a survey from corporate. One of the questions was "Do you identify as a veteran?" What a slap in the face to those who earned the right to "identify" as veterans. Courtesy of another "woke" corporation. And wouldn't they do this just before Memorial Day... Thank-you for exposing the hypocrisy, Mr. Huckabee.
