    THE EVENING EDITION By Mike Huckabee

    Good evening! Here are some stories from me that I think you will want to read. 


    DAILY BIBLE VERSE 


    THE LATEST NEWS

    1.  THE FIRST RAINDROP:

    I expect this may be the first raindrop in a very large storm, particularly if we count voters and not just politicians.

    https://www.dailywire.com/news/no-longer-in-step-with-the-democratic-party-texas-state-democrat-defects-joins-republican-party

    2. SOMETHING INTERESTING IS BREWING AMONG THE DEMOCRATS:

    I don’t have a crystal ball, but my Magic 8-Ball suggests that something interesting may be brewing behind the scenes at the White House that could result in the opposite of what all the self-appointed political “experts” expected (not that that’s rare these days.)

    Many people reasonably assumed Joe Biden wouldn’t finish out his first term, due to his age and questionable health. He would step down so that Kamala Harris could step in, bring new youthful energy to the task of destroying America as we know it, and as a black/Asian woman, sail to victory twice on identity politics, keeping the White House in Democrat hands for 12 straight years. But something happened that’s causing that pipedream to go up in smoke, and not just the fact that leftist policies fail miserably everywhere they’re tried.

    Turns out Kamala Harris is as bad at being Vice President as she was at being a Presidential candidate (reminder: a CNN poll had her at less than 3% just before she dropped out of the race a full two months before the Iowa Caucuses.) Like Pete Buttigieg, she checked off the correct “Identity Group” boxes, but not the “Qualified for the Job” box. Her personality puts people off, it’s rumored her staff is in turmoil, and her signature “accomplishment” has been finding creative ways to dodge dealing with the border disaster she was put in charge of fixing. You know the tension inside the White House with Harris is bad when even CNN reports on it.

    https://redstate.com/nick-arama/2021/11/15/the-brandon-harris-admin-now-has-a-new-name-n476453

    The bad publicity for Harris is forcing Biden’s people to deny that there’s any problem at all, which in Washington is the surest sign that there’s a problem.

    https://www.westernjournal.com/cnn-drops-damaging-report-kamala-harris-forces-white-house-crisis-mode-cover/

    A recent poll that showed Biden’s approval rating in the basement at 38% also showed Harris in the sub-basement at 28%. In short, the only way the Democrats could actually make their position worse would be to replace Biden with Harris. So as Derek Hunter at Townhall.com reports, the insider buzz is that it might be Harris stepping down instead of Biden.

    https://townhall.com/columnists/derekhunter/2021/11/16/everyone-hates-kamala-n2599141

    Rumor is that skids are being greased for Harris to, as they say in DC, “spend more time with her family,” so that she could be replaced with someone who has a chance at electability in 2024.

    That raises another question: after four years of this catastrophe, will any Democrat be electable in 2024? My Magic 8-Ball says, “Outlook not so good.”


    3. LIFE MUST BE HARD FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS THESE DAYS...:

    Feel like taking a deep dive into the Kafkaesque nightmare of today’s college campuses, where even liberal tenured professors cower in fear of saying a word that might “trigger” their students, even when it’s in the context of discussing such words as part of a course on pop culture? Then try this:

    https://redstate.com/alexparker/2021/11/16/columbia-university-professor-gets-smacked-with-a-title-ix-complaint-for-quoting-a-movie-n476518

    He greatly compounded his literally painful thought crimes by adding that he thinks colleges are becoming too sensitive and sanitized, and their priority should be teaching the value of freedom of expression and not making students feel “comfortable.” That’s it, fetch the rack!!

    I dare you to read all the way through this and try to make sense of the word salad explanation of when a teacher might or might not be allowed to say certain words. I’m old enough to remember when college students launched the “Free Speech Movement.” Today’s college students would demand you be fired just for using the offensive and hurtful phrase, “free speech.”

    I hope that these students’ diplomas come with an unbreakable Plexiglass bubble for them to spend the rest of their lives in. Because once they leave campus, any contact with reality, even merely verbal, might cause them to shatter into a million pieces and blow away.

    4. MORE EVIL RICH PEOPLE PLEASE:

    Darn those evil rich people who think they can spend their money more wisely than the government can! No sooner had New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio done away with the schools’ talented and gifted program than cosmetics billionaire Ronald Lauder announced that he’s giving a seven-figure gift to save it. Who does he think he is, giving his money directly to the kids instead of the government?

    https://nypost.com/2021/11/13/ronald-lauder-plans-to-save-nyc-gifted-and-talented-program/

    DeBlasio killed the program, claiming it was racist because there were too many whites and Asians in it and not enough minorities. But Lauder said, “You can call anything racist. It’s open to all, so how can it be racist?” He pointed out that minority students who received tutoring significantly outperformed the citywide average.

    You know, that sounds to me as if the New York City public schools are failing minority students. By the left’s own standards, doesn’t that make them racist? So shouldn’t they be done away with and replaced with something else?

    Sorry, I know the one thing we’re never allowed to do is hold leftists to the same standards they impose on the rest of us.


    5. THIS GUY JUST SPENT $1.2 TRILLION OF TAXPAYER MONEY: 

    Monday, President Biden signed the $1.2 trillion “infrastructure” bill that was passed with the votes of 13 House Republicans. And now, Americans get to find out what’s in it (hint: not that much “infrastructure,” hence the quotation marks.)

    In signing it, Biden, our national unifier, couldn’t resist the urge to make a snarky crack about a Republican, and in typical form, managed to mangle his words. In a dig at Sarah Palin, he said that during the Obama Administration, he worked with nearly every Governor except for one “who can see Alaska from her porch.”

    https://twitchy.com/brettt-3136/2021/11/15/fail-president-joe-biden-refers-to-sarah-palin-as-the-governor-who-could-see-alaska-from-her-porch/

    To untangle that linguistic spaghetti:

    1. Sarah Palin was the Governor of Alaska, and lives in Alaska, so I assume she can see Alaska from her porch.

    2. That was obviously a memory-addled version of the line, “I can see Russia from my porch”…

    3. …which was not said by Sarah Palin but by Tina Fey doing her mocking impersonation of Palin on “Saturday Night Live.”

    And this is the guy who just signed a bill to spend $1.2 trillion of your money. Feeling secure about that? If so, then you’ll also be happy to hear that he’s pushing to spend another $1.75 trillion on a bill that the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget says is filled with budget “gimmicks” and will actually cost nearly $5 trillion.

    https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/kurt-couchman-bidens-budget-agenda-only-pretends-to-be-responsible

    That’s a pile of money so high that a Martian could see it from his porch.


    6. THIS STORY DESERVES MORE ATTENTION:

    Katie Pavlich at Townhall.com has more on a criminally underreported story that deserves far more attention.

    https://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2021/11/15/icymi-john-kerry-makes-a-climate-deal-that-requires-the-use-of-slave-labor-n2599110

    At last week’s climate conference in Scotland, our national climate conscience John Kerry took a moment out from flying around in his private jet to announce a joint deal between the US and China for China to build more solar panels. He made it clear that this is so important that the US is willing to tolerate “differences” with China on human rights in manufacturing those panels, which are reportedly built by the forced labor of Uyghurs in concentration camps.

    When asked point blank about China’s use of slave labor to build solar panels, Kerry chuckled and said, “Not my lane.”

    That story also has details about Senate Republicans who are less nonchalant about slavery (the party was founded to end it, after all.) They're demanding to know more about a Chinese solar panel manufacturer that’s been linked to companies known to be using forced labor. Bonus: Kerry and his wife reportedly own a $1 million stake in an investment group that’s the top shareholder in that company.

    I think I can guess where the lane he is in is ultimately headed.

      Wow, our country is a hot mess. Thx to Biden and his handlers.
      BUT GOD! He is our help and stay in these difficult days. But for His grace and mercy we would cave to the attacks on those who truly are out to destroy our country. My faith is in the ONE who created me, sustains me and in many ways, brings encouragement thru His Word. We need to lift up those who are struggling without hope. It is what we are called to do. I refuse to cave to the nonsense we are being fed by the left. We must choose to stay strong to God’s promises and wait on His guidance. Hang on tight folks…Jesus will return and bring us to safety. He promised!

      This signing of the bill only turns this country into a thrd rate country. Since he has been in all he and his fellow Democrats have done is drive us further and further into debt. I have question, yesterday, Secretary of the Treasury stated she has enough money to keep the government running until 15 December. I remember thay only allowed for $480 Billion and cut off date of 3 December 2021 for debt increase . So how is she going to keep the debt going until 15 December. Is someone not going to be paid after 3 December 2021. Thank you

    McConnell will step down as Senate Republican Leader in November

    Mitch McConnell announced Wednesday that he will step down as Senate Republican Leader in November. He is the longest-serving party leader in US history. He did not say if this has anything to do with the criticism he’s received from conservatives or with his recent health issues that caused him to freeze up in mid-sentence a time or two. But while he will no longer be the GOP leader, he intends to continue serving in the Senate at least through the end of his current term in January 2027.

    And here’s a surprise: Robert Kennedy Jr. suggested that McConnell be replaced by Sen. Rand Paul. RFK Jr. tweeted, “It’s time to promote leaders in Washington, DC, who won’t kowtow to the military contractors or push us deeper into foreign conflicts. We need representation who will prioritize American wellness over all else. I believe Rand Paul would be an incredible successor. He’s shown great judgment and has the grit to put hardworking Americans first.”

    Get Out

    Law Professor William A. Jacobson of the Legal Insurrection blog has been watching the politicized lawfare against Trump and conservative businesses and organizations in New York, and the unprofessional threats and ugly gloating by Attorney General Letitia James about how she’s going to destroy Trump. He analyzed the situation in light of assurances by Gov. Hochul that if your business isn’t doing anything wrong, you have nothing to fear. And he arrived at this conclusion: 

    “Get out of New York, if you can.” And if you can’t leave now, “Develop an exit plan before you need it.

    Pray for the Panhandle

    Please join me in prayers today for those in the path of the huge wildfires in the Texas Panhandle and neighboring Oklahoma. There are five wildfires that are causing school closures and evacuations, including the evacuation of a nuclear power plant. The largest of them, the Smokehouse Creek Fire, covers 800 square miles and is now the second-largest wildfire in state history.

    This is a link to live updates on the fires from the Weather Channel.

    No test?!?

    The White House announced Wednesday that President Biden is making an unannounced trip to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for his yearly physical exam…which will NOT include a cognitive test. Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dismissed questions about a cognitive test, saying Biden proves his cognitive abilities "every day [in] how he operates and how he thinks."  I’m confused, is that an argument for or against a cognitive test?

    Talk about a delicious irony

    One of the strongest arguments for overturning the ruinously large fine on Trump in his New York real estate fraud case is the Eighth Amendment protection against excessive fines. The Supreme Court ruled 9-0 in 2019 that that protection does apply to state courts. And one of the strongest arguments for Trump to cite came from liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who said:

    “The prohibition embodied in the Excessive Fines Clause carries forward protections found in sources from Magna Carta to the English Bill of Rights to state constitutions from the colonial era to the present day. Protection against excessive fines has been a constant shield throughout Anglo-American history for good reason: Such fines undermine other liberties. They can be used, e.g., to retaliate against or chill the speech of political enemies.”

    I might not have agreed with many of her rulings, but judging from this, there’s no doubt she was psychic.

    Public Service Announcement

    Public service announcement to anyone thinking of donating to Harvard or sending their kids there: The co-chair of Harvard’s anti-Semitism task force resigned Monday because she has no confidence that Harvard will implement any of the task force’s recommendations to stop Jew hatred on campus.

    Related: Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media has a news round-up illustrating how bedbug crazy these pro-Palestine dingbats are and how they “have more vocal cords than brains,” from calling Jerry Seinfeld a “genocide supporter” to literally setting themselves on fire.

    Private School For Me, But Not For Thee

    Two Democrat Governors, Roy Cooper (North Carolina) and Andy Beshear (Kentucky), co-wrote an op-ed for USA Today condemning Republican attempts to give low-income parents vouchers to send their kids to the schools of their choice. They painted this as a racist conspiracy to loot the budgets of our precious public school system and set our schools back for a generation (as if the COVID lockdowns and the focus on woke politics and LGBTQ activism hadn't already set public school students back a generation.) 

    One problem: Both Democrat Governors send their own kids to elite private schools. But that’s okay because, hey, they can afford it.

     

    The Best People

    President Trump was roundly condemned as a racist and a xenophobe for saying of illegal immigration that other countries were not sending us their best people. So just to clarify, here’s an example of one of those best people that Joe Biden let in.
