DAILY BIBLE VERSE
6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
A vaccine for young children
By Mike Huckabee
Monday, Pfizer reported that its COVID vaccine is safe for 5-11-year-olds. This was taken as a likely sign that the FDA will approve it and the Biden Administration might mandate it, since the Delta variant is more transmissible and has infected more children. But that was a bridge too far for many parents who think it should be their decision whether the risks of COVID to their children outweigh the risks of possible side effects from a vaccine with no longterm studies.
That hesitancy caused some media figures like columnist David Frum to slam reluctant parents as “Anti-vaxxers,” which has become a kneejerk pejorative hurled at anyone who has questions about the vaccines, no matter how reasonable. Megyn Kelly took Frum to the woodshed over that.
As I’ve said repeatedly, I’ve been vaccinated, and like the vast majority of people, I’ve had no negative side effects. But that doesn’t mean that other people who might be particularly susceptible, or especially parents concerned about their children, should be attacked, ridiculed or told to just shut up when they have legitimate concerns that deserve to be addressed.
It’s likely that the questions are going to multiply in light of the latest undercover video release by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas. It came from a whistleblower who’s a registered nurse at a Health and Human Services-affiliated medical center. She recorded conversations with doctors and other nurses about the high number of patients with serious vaccine side effects and their concern that these reactions weren’t getting reported by the government. One doctor complained that they want “to shove it under the mat.”
If the CDC and other government health agencies want Americans to trust them, then they need to openly address people’s concerns and stop trying to bully them into submission. That only makes them more suspicious. If they’re ever going to win back the public’s trust, the first step would be to start acting trustworthy.
Growing, not hollowing
By Mike Huckabee
I’m not surprised at all to discover that yet another liberal media narrative about President Trump has proven to be false. Because of his support among Evangelicals, it was predicted that people would flee from that religious designation and Trump would “hollow out” Evangelical Christianity. But according to a new Pew Research Survey, that’s not what’s happened.
There are a lot of stats at the link, but this one will give you an idea of the general direction. When Trump was elected in 2016, 25% of White Americans self-identified as Born Again or Evangelical Protestants. By 2020, the figure was up to 29%. Not exactly an Exodus.
The Rev. Franklin Graham told Fox News that many Presidents paid lip service to Evangelicals but Trump was the first in decades who welcomed people of faith around him and was willing to fight for their side. But Graham also reminds us that the Bible says we should pray for those in authority, so he prays for President Biden. I also pray for him to have good health and wisdom, but not for success in imposing his agenda. Preventing that is covered by the other prayer I pray: “God, save America.”
Fake "OUTRAGE!!" Story of the Day
By Mike Huckabee
Leftist politicians and media figures went berserk over a video that they thought showed Border Patrol agents on horseback whipping Haitian illegal immigrants at the border. It was called unfathomable racist cruelty. But a Border Patrol source says those agents don’t carry whips. The leather straps in the photos are the horses’ reins. The agents sometimes spin the reins to warn people to stay back for their own safety, but they say to their knowledge, nobody has been struck with a rein, much less a whip.
So much for expecting Northeastern liberals to understand “The Cowboy Way.” But if they don’t want to waste all that “OUTRAGE!!” how about aiming it at something that deserves it? Like the fact that we now have tens of thousands of illegal immigrants streaming across the border?
By Mike Huckabee
Former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb admitted on “Face The Nation” that the six-foot social distancing rule that authorities have been drumming into us for over a year is “arbitrary in and of itself” and “nobody knows where it came from.” (This shouldn’t surprise longtime readers since we told you last year that it was based on nothing but guesswork. Science!!)
It makes sense to keep your distance from people whenever a contagious disease is going around, but Gottlieb also admitted that that arbitrary six-foot distancing is the major reason schools shut down. After the Biden Administration got it reduced to three feet, classes were able to reopen again.
It’s also the reason some people were going around with yardsticks and yelling at other people who were only five-feet-nine-inches apart. So now, they know what they can do with those yardsticks.
The story gets worse
By Mike Huckabee
I thought the saga of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “Tax The Rich” designer gown at the $30,000-a-ticket Met Gala was so ludicrous, it couldn’t possibly get worse. But with each passing day since, it has.
Now, the New York Post has done a deep dive into the finances of the gown’s designer, Aurora James, who accompanied AOC (and whom AOC described as a black female immigrant, even though she’s from a suburb of Toronto.) It seems that since 2015, her company has been hit with 15 warrants related to taxes, including failure to remit employees’ payroll taxes, not carrying workers’ comp insurance, and failure to withhold workers’ income taxes. That is, when her workers GOT income: some complained that she ran a sweatshop and made interns work full time with no pay.
She also has a string of unpaid debts in multiple states and despite taking a hefty PPP loan during the pandemic, she bought a $1.6 million house in the Hollywood Hills which is already listed as delinquent for property taxes.
I look forward to her upcoming line of “Tax OTHER Rich People” clothing. That will probably be even more popular with Democrat politicians.
Brace yourself for this story

Did you think that the story about the suicide bomber who killed 13 US service members and over 100 civilians in Kabul was about as bad as it could get? Well, brace yourself. The bomber has now been identified, and it just got worse.

In regards to Rev. Franklin Graham’s request to pray, I have seen a lot of people praying Psalm 109:8 for Biden, Harris & Pelosi. ;)

TOO BAD STATION THAT PERSONALITIES THAT HABITUALLY LIE OR EXTREMELY EXAGERATE SHOULD BE PUT TO SHAME. BUT THE QUESTION TO ASK THEM.....HAVE YOU NO SHAME!

Take the illegals to DE, NY, CA, MN and Maratha's Vineyard. They have plenty of room!

Now CNN has been showing the border but all they are concerned about are the horses. Not all of the people living in make shift tents. Not all of the people that they can not see. Strange what is the problem with the horses. There are not people there coming over the border illegibly. Well that is what we have been told for over 8 months. If the Dems what to go and watch the border they might find out about riding a horse. Or maybe they will just organize the border.

I've always considered the Grahams to be America's true First Family - the Huckabees as VPs of course (:

You haven't had a side effect yet. You are part of a long term experiment. The normal vaccine process is 4 to 5 years for a reason. Glad you know the Lord.

When I read Al-Jazeera one of the news groups my red flag went up. They have an office in D.C like all other Islamic terrorist groups and Marxist legal groups. The Muslims are taught to twist the law. Called LawFare. Why there are Muslim terrorist supporters in Congress. One from my state of Washington.
It will be a long battle to regain the Republic. The Marxists have no leg to stand on. Masters at manipulating and leading from the rear. Both parties are being played
I can not pray for the government. According to Romans 13 it is no longer a terror to evil but supports evil. Like ancient Israel there is a Jezebel behind all this!
I see you no longer send. Morning news letter. Why?
