DAILY BIBLE VERSE
29 He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.
California Recall Update
By Mike Huckabee
Tomorrow is the recall election on California Gov. Gavin Newsom, but voting has already been underway for a while. And apparently, so has “voting.” While I’d love to report that Californians have come to their senses, some conservatives are concerned that the effort will fail, not because voters want to keep Newsom (“Thank you, sir, may I have another?!”) but because the heavily-entrenched Democrats have made election cheating so easy.
Wayne Allen Root is one of those people. He describes the many ways in which California Dems have made vote fraud simpler than ordering a pizza online.
To back him up, here are two reports from KTLA-TV, the first about multiple people in a Republican district in the San Fernando Valley showing up to vote and finding that someone had already cast ballots in their names.
They were allowed to cast provisional ballots, but I’m curious as to whether someone else had actually voted in their names, and if so, what happens to those ballots? Can they be identified and disqualified? If not, and the fraudulent vote is also counted and cancels out the real provisional vote, then fraud DISENFRANCHISED a legitimate voter. I thought the Dems were all about preventing voters from being disenfranchised.
The other story is about police in Torrance arresting a known felon who was found passed out in his car in a 7-11 parking lot. The car contained a loaded firearm, meth and other drugs, thousands of pieces of mail, multiple driver’s licenses and credit cards in various people’s names, and approximately 300 recall ballots. This story said that police “reminded community members to report any suspicious election activity.” I think this would qualify, even by California standards.
However, some conservative organizations are bracing to fight any attempts at fraud and asking people to report suspicious activity. You can find that information here:
I don’t think it’s impossible for the recall effort to succeed, but it will take all fed-up California voters turning out and making their voices heard. Please don’t sit on the couch and then complain on Wednesday that not enough people voted.
More On The Newsom Recall
By Mike Huckabee
Meanwhile, the California campaigning is still going strong and taking some unusual twists. Actress Rose McGowan already risked her Hollywood career by daring to go public with her sexual assault allegations against movie mogul and Democrat mega-backer Harvey Weinstein. She once again proved that she refuses to bow to industry groupthink by appearing with GOP gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder over the weekend.
McGowan said she is no longer a Democrat and she rejects people who want us to micro-label each other by race and views. She said she may disagree with Elder on some policies, but he’s “the better candidate and the better man.” Her message to the state, the voters and the media was “Be human first, vote for humanity."
McGowan also cautioned those who attack Elder as not really being black because he disagrees with Black Lives Matter to "understand who it's coming from and that he might just know more than you, living in a different skin."
Of course, McGowan might also have another reason for not supporting Gov. Gavin Newsom or the Democrats in general: she claimed recently that his wife Jennifer Siebel Newsom called her when she was about to go public about Weinstein’s serial sex crimes and told her that Clinton fixer and Weinstein’s then-attorney David Boies wanted to know what it would take to “make her happy.” Fortunately, she refused to keep quiet and she got what she wanted anyway: Weinstein is currently in prison.
In other Elder campaign news, two Venice neighborhood council board members who were showing Elder around a homeless camp have filed hate crime charges with the LAPD against leftist protesters who showed up and threw things and yelled sexist and racist slurs. One woman wearing a gorilla mask threw an egg that narrowly missed Elder.
Elder and other conservatives have pointed out that if that had been a conservative activist attacking a black Democrat, it would make 24/7 news about systemic racism and racist Republicans, but instead, there’s been barely a peep from local liberal media outlets that would rather fill space with ridiculous articles about Elder being a black white supremacist.
If you think that sounds insane, congratulations, you’re sane. But it’s just the latest leftist insanity on race. Check out these CNN talking heads pushing the idea that even after America becomes a majority-minority nation, it will still be plagued by white supremacy because of all the black and brown white supremacists. I kid you not.
The racially-obsessed left has become like a Dave Chappelle sketch in real life. (Warning: Lots of “N-words” in this brutally satirical sketch that would never be allowed to air today.)
Finally, I’m going to wrap up this wrap-up of California recall stories with our Headline of the Day, from Fox News:
“Don’t Let California become Texas, Newsom says – as residents, businesses flee” (to Texas.)
Give Credit Where It’s Due
By Mike Huckabee
President Biden kept his promise to start releasing classified government documents from the 9/11 investigation. Here’s what the first, heavily-redacted batch tell us.
Expect To See More Stories Like This
By Mike Huckabee
I fear we can expect to see a lot more stories like as President Biden tries to enforce his “Get Vaccinated or Else” policy: a hospital in rural New York announced that it will temporarily stop delivering babies due to a mass resignation of staffers protesting the vaccination mandate. Five other departments could also be affected.
FYI: I’m not endorsing the idea of hospital staffers refusing vaccinations. I’m just reporting that these hospital staffers refuse so far to comply with government-mandated vaccination, as have many others across the nation. And if there’s this much resistance among people who work in hospitals, imagine the level of pushback that could be coming in other industries.
Just as Biden’s “pay people not to work” unemployment benefits were running out, he (or I’m sure, the people around him) came up with another plan that will make it even harder for employers to find workers and workers to find jobs. Coincidence, stupidity or plan?
My Weekend Monologue
By Mike Huckabee
This weekend marks 20 years since Islamic radical terrorists flew airplanes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and would have flown a 4th plane into the Capitol or White House except that passengers on that plane wrestled the controls away from the hijackers and the plane went down in Shanksville, PA. 3000 innocent people were murdered in the space of a few minutes in a cowardly attack that shook the nation more powerfully than anything since Pearl Harbor. One of the reasons the events of that day are seared into the deepest recesses of our souls is that we saw it play out on live television. Some of the images, especially of desperate people jumping from the Towers to escape the fireball of the airliners exploding or the soot-covered people in business attire stumbling away from the collapsing buildings are images we can’t unsee.
We all remember exactly where we were that day and what we were doing when we saw the planes hit. Like the JFK assassination for those of us old enough to remember it, or the Challenger explosion, there are moments in our lives where an event so stunned us that time seemed to stand still and we had to catch our breath from the sheer shock of what our eyes had told us.
In the hours, days, and weeks following 9-11, America was united like I had never witnessed. Flags flew everywhere—on office buildings, residences, and cars. And no one took a knee. Members of Congress from both parties stood together on the Capitol steps and sang a hymn. Churches were filled with people praying. Young men and women put aside their studies or their lives to enlist in the military. America was at war. And we were united.
Here’s what didn’t happen. People didn’t divide among lines of race, gender, political party, or sexual identity. No sane person blamed America or systemic racism or white rage. If we really were a racist, imperialistic, evil country, surely we would have been told that by members of Congress. But we weren’t told that. Because we weren’t an evil country. And let me tell you, we aren’t an evil country now. Imperfect? Sure, but still the best place on God’s green earth.
We’ve allowed America-hating academics and outright Marxists to tell us we’re all racists. We’ve had frightened CEO’s down on their knees apologizing to total strangers for some symbolic repentance of sins they can’t even recall or name. And we’ve watched otherwise responsible corporate boards pretend to be “woke” and demand their employees get instruction in some nutty nonsense called Critical Race Theory that only serves to divide people when there is so much to unite us as people blessed by God to live in a nation where color isn’t what we’re about—character is. That’s the beautiful message from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and it’s never been more needed.
9-11 was a slap in our face and it was a rude awakening to the real evil in our world. An ideology that hates America, hates freedom, hates equality for women or people of color is the ideology that attacked us. It remains a threat to our freedom and our way of life. Ultimately, the battle we faced then and the one we still face now is a spiritual battle. Will the Judeo-Christian framework we were built upon remain our foundation, or will we surrender to a fanatic world-view that believes women are property who don’t deserve an education or identity and that killing innocent people for a political cause is okay? Instead of apologizing for America, we ought to unapologetically affirm our love for America. And no better day to do that than a day which reminds us who we really are.
