BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY
Bad News Democrats
By Mike Huckabee
Despite your best efforts to tar, silence, cancel and destroy him, former President Trump is simply NOT going away. His new Save America super PAC is up and running, and he’s been endorsing a number of Republicans through it.
He also just issued a scathing statement blasting President Biden for causing a new wave of illegal immigration on our Southern border with his “disastrous” policies. He’s bringing criminals and COVID-positive migrants into the US while blocking federal authorities from deporting criminal aliens who were already arrested.
But before Democrats launch a counter-attack on Trump, they should know that he’s hardly alone in recognizing what an absolute disaster Biden’s reversal of all of Trump’s border security measures has been. Texas Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar warned that we are weeks if not days away from a full-blown crisis on the Texas border.
An Arizona sheriff warns that Biden’s halt to finishing the remaining gaps in the border wall has created wide open spaces for drug cartels. He said five or six groups a day are now coming through and blames it on politics. He told Fox News, "This administration owns this decision. And what it’s doing is, is forcing us back to 2019, when we had the largest, what I call, crime scene in the country to include the largest humanitarian situation going on."
Even the Washington Post admits that the White House is rushing to accommodate a surge of migrants, “with few signs of plans to contain it.” Maybe that’s because causing a new surge of migrants who will be accommodated but not contained IS the Biden immigration plan.
The New York Post reminds us of precisely what those successful Trump border policies were and how Biden has created this mess by ripping them up.
There’s also an Associated Press story being widely reprinted, with the misleading headline, “In Biden’s Early Days, Signs of Trump-Era Problems at Border.”
No, those aren’t “Trump-era problems.” Those are Obama-era problems that Trump inherited and fixed (remember that Arizona sheriff who said it was like 2019.) It would be more accurate to say, “Signs of Obama-era Problems that Biden has Stupidly Brought Back.”
Walgreens v San Francisco
By Mike Huckabee
Walgreen’s is closing 10 stores in the San Francisco area because California’s politicians made it a misdemeanor to steal anything worth less than $950 and the city’s far-left D.A. is refusing to prosecute shoplifters. So stores like Walgreen’s are being ransacked by both professional thieves and homeless people.
On the plus side, you’ll still be able to buy plenty of drugs in the parks.
Meanwhile, it’s no wonder California District Attorneys go so easy on thieves...

Kyle Becker at Trending Politics lists 10 (only 10?) signs that Joe Biden is the “missing” President, a cardboard figurehead who seldom answers a question, visits a crisis spot or even pokes his head out of the White House. As Becker points out, many Americans are not only already missing President Trump, they’re missing the feeling of having a President at all.
The more of I see of Biden in (or is he even in?) office, the more I’m convinced that poet William Hughes Mearns was psychic and writing about Biden when he wrote this in 1899:
"Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn't there!
He wasn't there again today,
Oh how I wish he'd go away!"
Canceled For Warning About Cancel Culture
By Mike Huckabee
Our latest outrageous story of someone being canceled for warning about cancel culture canceling people comes from Shelby County, Tennessee, of all places. I’d have hoped school officials there had more sense than they do in places like San Francisco, but they disappointed me by suspending high school principal Barton Thorne for saying something “triggering” to students. Here are his shocking words:
"I want you to understand the problem that's going to face you and your generation if there is no longer a marketplace, a free exchange of ideas." He went on to give them a completely accurate and unbiased history of attempts to suppress free thought, such as McCarthyism, and warned them that while nothing he was saying was controversial now, if someone came into power who didn’t like it, they could use today’s same “cancel culture” rationale to silence him for voicing these inoffensive truths.
He didn’t realize that there already was a group of people in power who would punish him for telling students inoffensive truths. He’s now suing the school district. At the link, Glenn Beck has more of what he said (everyone in America should hear his words, by the way) and an interview with his attorney.
More on March 4

March 4th passed with no hordes of wild-eyed, armed Trump supporters attempting to take over Washington. But instead of letting the National Guard troops go home and swallow some Pepto-Bismol, Democrats want the Pentagon to extend their stay until May, inciting further Internet-gathered “intelligence” (there’s got to be a better term for that) that an assault may be coming on some other future date, like April 1st. Yes, I’d say that April Fools' Day is the most likely date.
Liberal journalist Glenn Greenwald has been one of the few honest enough to see this manipulative political theater for what it is.
At that link, he gives us a recap of all the hysterical claims they’ve made, how they’ve eventually been proven false and collapsed, and how every date that they predicted would bring an armed insurrectionist attack did not. He aptly compares them to cult leaders who, when their predicted apocalypse fails to materialize, just move the date a little further into the future.
He also nails the real point of all this baseless slander against 75 million Trump supporters, painting everyday working Americans who don’t support far-left policies as “domestic terrorists,” writing, “The more you can demonize your opponents as something monstrous, the more political power you can acquire.”
Or as I often like to quote H.L. Mencken, who noted the same trick around 100 years earlier, “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the public alarmed and hence clamorous to be led to safety from an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”
I feel, however, that as a conservative and a Trump supporter, I should come clean with Democrats. Yes, we are planning a mass takeover of the government, but not armed and not in March or April of 2021. In November of 2022, we plan to storm the polls in massive numbers and overthrow the current tyrannical government by voting every one of you out of office. You may consider that insurrection, but it's not. It's something you seem to despise even more. It's the Constitution.

Governor Huckabee, I read your newsletter daily. I find it very informative and very helpful in my discussions with others to be able to defend Mr. Trump and his policies as opposed to this present government.
