TRUMP'S THREE SUPREME COURT APPOINTMENTS ARE ALREADY MAKING A DIFFERENCE

If anyone doesn’t think President Trump accomplished enough, his three appointments to the Supreme Court alone may have saved the First Amendment and religious freedom rights.

Thanks to the addition of Justice Amy Coney Barrett, last week, Chief Justice John Roberts’ typical defection to the liberal side wasn’t enough to prevent the SCOTUS from slapping down New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s plainly unconstitutional discrimination against houses of worship with onerous coronavirus restrictions. They didn't apply to secular gathering places, from bike shops to liquor stores, but only to churches, synagogues and mosques. And now, the SCOTUS has just landed another blow against pandemic-inspired religious discrimination by California Gov. Gavin Newsom.

While it’s not as quick and decisive as the smackdown the SCOTUS delivered to Cuomo, the Court vacated a lower court ruling against Harvest Hill Church, which is challenging Newsom’s coronavirus restrictions. The SCOTUS sent the case back to the appeals court and ordered them to reconsider it in light of last week’s ruling on New York. That’s as close as they could get to saying, “Get it right this time and don’t make us have to reverse you!”

Just to be clear: churches aren’t arguing that they should be allowed to ignore public safety laws. The churches I know are being scrupulous about following all reasonable precautions. But they shouldn’t be singled out for persecution, like imposing fines and jail sentences on pastors when the same guidelines are voluntary for others, or shutting down churches when strip clubs are allowed to stay open as “essential,” or limiting worship services to 10 people in a facility that can hold hundreds. Those are clear examples of religious discrimination banned by the First Amendment.

If Newsom and Cuomo think they don’t have to listen to the Supreme Court or to a handful of churchgoers, they might want to consider just how big an opponent they’re taking on.

The Beckett Fund’s second annual Religious Freedom Index was just released. It found that an overwhelming majority of Americans believe religion is an important stabilizing influence on society during times of social upheaval (like the pandemic.) A full 60% believe religion is a necessary, fundamental part of a person’s identity that should be protected. And a majority believe that safely reopening places of worship is equally as urgent as safely reopening businesses.

So if neither the Bible nor the Supreme Court can get through to these out-of-control liberal politicians, maybe they’ll pay attention when they hear that the polls are against them, too.


IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: NEW PODCAST EPISODE

Ever wonder what ever happened to good old-fashioned gumshoe reporting? Veteran journalist Uma Pemmaraju has the answer on this week’s “People’s Podcast,” speaking with Governor Huckabee all about the news media’s declining standards in our ironically named information era.

ELECTION UPDATE

The Wisconsin Supreme Court turned away President Trump’s petition to reject more than 221,000 ballots. The ruling wasn’t on the merits but on a process issue, that they are required to start in a lower court. Due to the pressing time frame, Trump’s attorney said they will immediately file the case in circuit court and be back before the Supreme Court very soon. More details here.

LIN WOOD'S IDEA IS 100% BEDBUG CRAZY

Attorney Lin Wood has been blasted for urging Georgia Republicans not to vote in the Senate runoff if GOP Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler don’t do more to help Trump’s vote challenge. Even Trump condemned that crazy suggestion, since he knows that letting the Senate, House and White House all fall into Democrat hands would be like putting the whole nation in the backseat of a car driven by a crazy person, with no responsible adults having access to the brakes.

To hammer home his disavowal of Wood, Trump tweeted his “strong support” for Perdue and Loeffler, and the Trump War Room tweeted out a new report that for decades, Wood has voted for and donated to Democrats, including Obama and Sen. Perdue’s 2014 opponent.

I’m not going to tell you not to listen to Wood’s suggestion not to vote and to let the Senate be taken over by the Democrats just because he has a history of supporting and donating to Democrats. I’m also not going to tell you not to listen to him because of the disappointing results of his own election legal maneuvers. I’m just going to tell you not to listen to his suggestion because it’s 100% bedbug crazy. You would be smarter to try to cut off your nose to spite your face by swinging an ax at your own head than to pay attention to that incredibly idiotic suggestion.

If you’re a Republican in Georgia, you should already be welding yourself a suit of armor just in case you have to crawl over broken glass to vote for Perdue and Loeffler.

And here’s another reason why Wood’s suggestion makes no sense: if you care about investigating vote fraud, who do you think is going to do that if the Democrats take over the Senate?

THE FIRST 100 DAYS

Joe Biden said that on the first day he’s inaugurated (if he is), he will ask Americans to commit to wearing masks everywhere for 100 days. That falls short of the mask mandate he originally vowed (and for which he has no constitutional authority), since it would be voluntary. Biden said, “Just 100 days to mask — not forever, just 100 days. And I think we’ll see a significant reduction” in the virus.

Three points: (1.) A number of states already have mask mandates and most people are already wearing masks either voluntarily or not, but there hasn’t been a “significant reduction.” In fact, studies show masks have a positive but minimal effect; (2.) I notice he doesn’t mention that thanks to Trump’s “Operation Warp Speed,” there are already three vaccines showing high effectiveness, and at least one may already have started being distributed well before Inauguration Day; and (3.) the “just 100 days to mask, not forever, just 100 days” sounds eerily reminiscent of “Two weeks to flatten the curve – just two weeks!” Anybody remember that from nine months ago?

I’m glad to see we’d be switching from an Administration that’s “totally botched” the virus response to one that listens to the scientists, and has fresh, bold ideas to bring it under control. Like continuing to wear masks and staying home indefinitely.

PS – Speaking of doing exactly the same thing we’re already doing, Biden also said he would keep Dr. Fauci “in the exact same role he’s had for the past several presidents.”

Change!!

    Thank you for this! 100%
    Glad someone isn't bedbug crazy! We need common sense somewhere. I can think of no justifiable reasons for Lin Wood's actions and statement. Neither did he clean it up, or take responsibility. He only cast blame. I am starting to think he is intentionally helping the left.

    I needed to make a correction on this comment:
    Mike I always enjoy reading your newsletters because you always sprinkle in a little humor with the truth and I am confident that you search out the truth. I do want to comment on what you said about Lin Wood and I disagree on the the use of the word "bedbug crazy" in describing his suggestion! I watched the rally and I would describe him as a man that loves his country, his state of Georgia, and President Trump! By the way I grew up in Georgia and live just a few miles across the line in Tennessee! But back to the rally and Lin Wood, I saw him as a passionately frustrated person with the inaction of Brian Kemp, Brad the secretary of state and other Republicans in the state and congress for not doing more to show their support for the President in going after this horrible Fraud on our country and possibly even Treason! I do not support his suggestion of sitting out the run off race for the two Senate seats at all but I have to agree that something is definitely rotten with what has gone on in Georgia and the other states concerning the Fraud and this Stolen election and I am very frustrated and angry with the Republicans for not being more vocal in their support for President Trump in trying to get to truth of what happened! If this is not investigated to the fullest and those responsible for this horrible thing that has happened I don't think we will recognize our country as America for much longer!
    From a very concerned and praying patriot,

    The silence from the democrats on voting fraud is deafening. I wonder how many democrats lost in a primary to another democrat due to voter fraud?

  • Renee Kendrick

    Someone should start a "Drop the Mask" revolt against Biden's "mandate". Enough is enough!

    Kudos to President Trump for his determination and dedicated efforts in orchestrating a plan for getting a vaccine prepared and ready against this virus! He is the most hardworking man to ever cross the office of U. S. President!!!

    Gov.,
    Sir, you know the answer to getting control of the government: It is the Convention of States Project. Without an Article V Convention of States the only option is a shooting war. Which do you want?

    Trump's judge and justice appointments are the only thing that will slow down the Marxist-Democrats if they win.

    Thanks for finally posting what I said about idiotic skewing statistics and misrepresentation of "TRUE COVID DEATHS!" I hope you post this also. "WHY IS THERE A BELIEF THAT THERE IS A MAGIC BOUNDARY LINE ABOVE THE MASK THAT KILLS OR PREVENTS THE COVID VIRUS?" Logically and intelligently please ask your God Given Common Sense and Intelligence how does the mask prevent the wearer from being infected? EVERY OPEN SKIN PORE EVERY UNPROTECTED SPOT OF EXPOSED HUMAN SKIN, HAIR ETC. IF COVID IS SO INFECTIOUS!" Again, I am not saying COVID, flu any virus is not serious especially in people predisposed with chronic illnesses. WHAT I DO NOT LIKE IS THE PRE-PLANNED ATTACK ON PEOPLES FEARS TO MANIPULATE US INTO SUBMISSION THAT IS A DETRIMENT TO OUR LIVES, ECONOMY AND HYSTERICAL OVER-REACTION BY SO-CALLED EXPERTS TO PAD THE POWER HUNGRY ELITES EGOS AND BANK ACCOUNTS....THAT ARE VERY OFTEN OFF-SHORE.

    Greetings Pastor Mike, I would like you to comment on the Covid 19 vaccine that messes with our messenger RNA. The coming use of of nano, micro and biosensors in vaccines. The use of crisper technology? I would refer you to Dr. Carrie Madej. Thank you.

    I doubt very much if the Pres. Will prevail, as I have said before. Too many parts have to come together. If the Justice Department can’t find enough with a person like Barr then there isn’t enough to make difference. There is no doubt in my mind that Biden won based on cheating one way or the other. I suspect there were a lot of votes among the poor bought and paid for. All this mail in voting made it easy. Walk up to door in a poor neighborhood and say you want to help put. Offer a few bucks if they will fill out the ballot with their help. No one is going to own up to accepting money for their vote. These people beLieve in their cause so much morals and ethics mean nothing. In Marxism the end justifies the means. There are no longer standards to be followed. If Trump were to prevail, I am sure there would be so many impeachment trials for any little thing that that’s all that would happen in Congress. Rather than give him any success they would naysay anything. The media headLines would be Trump steals the election with his hand picked biased Court. The rioting and destruction would be unbelievable. Does that mean the investigations should not continue? No, it does not. We need to know what has gone on to clean up a probable mess. The DNC gets away with everything, look at Hilary who should be serving time. Look a pencil neck who continues to tell incredible lies. Look at the squad who make women look stupid and silly but are quoted in the press like they are brilliant. Look at the hypocrisy. Nancy spends more on one of her suits than most spend in monthly rent. The riffraff don't need their hair done, but she does.

    Joe Biden and his followers are looking at a revolt nationwide and will only get worse until he and his democratic dictators in the U.S. come to their senses. AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE EXPERICEING "PANDEMIC FATIGUE AND KNOW THAT UNLESS THEY ALL GET BACK TO WORK SOON THERE WILL BE NOTHING TO GO WORK FOR OR BE EMPLOYED DUE THE JOBS WILL ALL BE GONE AGAIN AND NO STIMULUS PACKAGE WILL BRING THEM BACK.

    Governor, you seem to be predicting that these same liberal leaders who gave near dictatorial power and finality to nine unelected judges whenever the Supreme Court ruled in their favor will now just start ignoring the court as it is going against them. I whole-heartedly agree. But I will take it one step further. You state that, "The Beckett Fund’s second annual Religious Freedom Index was just released. It found that an overwhelming majority of Americans believe religion is an important stabilizing influence on society during times of social upheaval (like the pandemic.) A full 60% believe religion is a necessary, fundamental part of a person’s identity that should be protected. And a majority believe that safely reopening places of worship is equally as urgent as safely reopening businesses." I will predict that the instrument has not been invented to show how little regard they will give for something like that. Because hey - do you think they'll pay a price for ignoring the court???

    Lest one dismiss Lin Wood as a kook and crackpot lawyer, consider the case of Nicholas Sandmann, represented by Mr Wood, in his defamation lawsuit vs CNN and The Wash Compost, in which the defendants settled, to the tune of Mega-$$$, in favor of the plaintiff. Called putting your $$$ where the defendants mouths are.

    Will somebody please tell me where in the Constitution we are required to hand this nation over to people sworn to take it down? Let's not be foolish enough to just roll over and say, "Well, in four years...." Our enemy has shown his hand. Will you walk up to him and shake it, congratulate him on pulling off the most corrupt, fraudulent election in the history of this country, or will you be willing to stand up and fight for it? To support our rightful president, Donald Trump. This isn't the time for parties and feasting, but for prayer and fasting. Surely there is still the courage and determination of our forefathers left in those of us living now.

Why vote on the same corrupt Dominion Systems. They already removed one of the servers earlier this week and have tried everything to keep from getting a forensic audit. Everybody is a RINO or DEMONcrat in Washington. Two heads of the same SNAKE

    I agree, what Lin Wood said at the Georgia rally was crazy! I do believe in my heart that President Trump will win. The insurrection act must be used. There was way too much fraud, corruption & treason committed in this election to be overlooked! Our elections will never be the same in America if it’s not corrected now and the rightful winner, President Trump is not declared the winner. 75 million people voted, all these votes count.
    We the People are the decision makers of our country. The politicians work for us! Karma will be knocking on their door soon!
