“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”

Revelation 21:4

New Abortion Case

By Mike Huckabee

Monday, the Supreme Court agreed to hear a case that poses a challenge to a key aspect of the yanked-out-of-thin-air right to abortion that was created in Roe v. Wade.

The case centers on whether states have the power to limit abortions before the point of “viability” outside the womb, such as when the baby has a detectable heartbeat or can feel pain.

Here’s a key paragraph from Tyler O’Neil at PJ Media: “The vast majority of Americans (87 percent) have said that the question of when life begins is important to the abortion issue and 81 percent have said biologists should decide where to draw the line. Ninety-five percent of biologists have said that human life begins at conception.”

This is the kind of case that has some Democrats so desperate to expand and pack the Supreme Court with liberal activists before it starts taking too hard a look at inconvenient things like facts and science.

NEW POLL: Would you support President Trump if he ran again? Do you think it is time for new leadership of the Party? Please vote below and leave me a comment if you can. I read them!

Inflation Primer

By Mike Huckabee

Today's young people are lucky enough never to have lived through times of high inflation, or any serious economic hard times. Maybe that’s why so many foolishly believe that the Trump years were the worst times ever, even though in retrospect, they might turn out to be the best times they’ll ever experience.

At that link, conservative blogger P.F. Whalen has an excellent primer for young Americans, explaining to them what inflation is, where it comes from, why it’s reeeeeally bad, and why the policies of the President they wanted so desperately to elect are bringing it back at full gallop for the first time since the 1970s. It might be too late to prevent it, but at least when it slams into them, they’ll know what hit them, and maybe the pain will teach them to stop voting for more of it.

Misplaced Concern Part I

By Mike Huckabee

While actual terrorists like Antifa are allowed to ride roughshod over our cities, and the liberal media are defending Hamas terrorists who are firing missiles at Israeli civilians, our “leaders” in Washington seem obsessed with trying to paint their normal American conservative political opponents as the biggest threat to public safety.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues to beat the expiring horse of the January 6th violence at the Capitol as being the biggest threat to the Republic since the Civil War. So she got her “9/11-style investigation” (frankly, it sickens me to hear the massive tragedy of 9/11 cheapened for such blatantly political purposes.) Only one person died as a result of violence on January 6th, and that was unarmed Trump protester Ashli Babbitt, who was shot to death while she was threatening no one by a Capitol Police officer who was left off the hook with zero consequences.

Pelosi might be sorry she kept pushing this narrative, since some House Republicans are now demanding answers for their own investigations. They accuse the Democrats and the DOJ of “outright propaganda and lies” and of criminalizing political dissent. Like why, in a nation where real violent rioters on the left were released with no charges, Trump supporters who committed no violent acts were treated like terrorists and subjected to armed raids and jail pending charges.

There’s also a report that newly-released surveillance footage shows Capitol Police giving the protesters permission to enter the building, which is a real narrative-buster. I don’t recall anyone giving the 9/11 perpetrators permission to hijack planes and fly them into buildings, which is just one of the countless ways in which this is NOTHING like 9/11.

Misplaced Concern Part II

By Mike Huckabee

In other misplaced concern news, the Biden Administration just put up a $500,000 grant to fund research projects into rooting out “violent extremists” from police departments. Yeah, that's the biggest cause of violence in American today: conservative police officers.

Meanwhile, Lt Col. Matthew Lohmeier was relieved of his leadership position in the new US Space Force after he criticized Critical Race Theory training in the military, saying it was rooted in Marxism (spoiler alert: it is.) The Pentagon (which has also made as its priority rooting out alleged “extremism” among our troops) accused Lohmeier of engaging in “partisan political activity,” and we certainly can’t have that in government departments that are supposed to be non-partisan, now can we?

Lohmeier may have the last laugh, however. He recently self-published a book "Irresistible Revolution: Marxism's Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military." It details how proponents of Marxism, BLM, Critical Race Theory and other leftist movements have infiltrated the US military and are using their power to brand mainstream conservatives as dangerous “extremists” and to silence political views that aren’t in line with leftist dogma.

His dismissal proved his point so perfectly and got so much publicity that his self-published book is now a #1 best-seller on Amazon:

Portland is a warning

By Mike Huckabee

Despite some heavy competition, Portland, Oregon, has tragically become the poster city for the unimaginable disaster that follows from electing leftists to power. After a year of the city allowing rioters and violent Antifa thugs to run wild, turning the few who are arrested loose to do it again, and defunding, slandering and hamstringing police, the president of the police union warns that Portland is “on the precipice of a gang war.”

In a post to Facebook, Daryl Turner wrote, “In the past 24 hours, there have been 8 instances of gunfire on the streets of our City, and 3 people were shot. Tragically, one person was killed, and two others are in the hospital with life-threatening injuries; each victim is a person of color.” (I thought Black Lives Mattered to the city’s leaders, but apparently, only if they’re killed by the police.)

He continued, “Right now, our community has a sense of hopelessness. They have resigned themselves to the fact that things will get worse, not better. Residents are moving out of the City, businesses are being forced to relocate, and good, hard-working police officers are leaving the Bureau to work for other agencies.”

Turner said the politicians can no longer blame the surge in gun violence on the pandemic and that it’s directly related to their defunding of police, which has caused understaffing, longer response times and disbanding of specialty crime units.

So if they can’t blame the surge in gun violence that was actually caused by their insane leftist policies on racism or on the pandemic, what will they blame it on? If I were a betting man, I’d wager on them blaming it on the guns and next trying to disarm law-abiding citizens. Yeah, that should solve the problem…

Neanderthal thinking

By Mike Huckabee

Remember on March 2, when Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced an end to the statewide mask mandate and the full reopening of the state, and President Biden accused him of “Neanderthal thinking,” while Democrat-coddling media outlets predicted a massive spike in COVID cases and deaths?

So, how is that working out? Sunday, Abbott announced that in the previous 24 hours, Texas had suffered zero COVID deaths, the first time that’s happened since March of 2020. It also notched the fewest COVID cases in over 13 months, the lowest 7-day COVID positivity rate since the pandemic started, and the fewest hospitalizations in 11 months. I guess Neanderthals are better at surviving than we thought.

Some liberals seem to be suffering withdrawal over the idea of the pandemic ending. The CDC announced that it’s now safe for most fully vaccinated Americans to end social distancing and stop wearing masks (FYI: that was always safe for most fully vaccinated Americans), and the news has leftists beside themselves. Then again, if they didn’t hate good news and love misery, they wouldn’t be leftists.

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow said she’d have to "rewire" her brain to not view someone without a mask as a "threat" (rewiring her brain might be a good idea in general.) And gun control activist and failed pillow maker David Hogg tweeted he would keep wearing a mask even though he’s fully vaccinated "because the inconvenience of having to wear a mask is more than worth it to have people not think I’m a conservative."

Don’t worry, David: as long as the mask isn’t thick enough to prevent people from hearing the incredibly dumb things you say, nobody will ever mistake you for a conservative.

I suspect that the real reason these people are so reluctant to give up their masks and let Americans get back to normal is that it symbolizes giving up the control they usurped over people’s lives. They want to keep that control and never let things go back to the way they were, with people running their own lives and doing whatever they want.

Their reluctance to take off the mask is telling us everything we need to know about what’s hidden underneath.

    Mr. Huckabee you are doing a better job of reporting than ever before. Being tough and honest is much better than being equally compassionate to all kinds of people. We are in a different world, and good old fashioned manners concerning kindness is a waste. Keep it up please.

    Concerning abortion, the ‘spark’ of new life should be at conception. Natural workings of the mother’s body will accept or deny the living of this being.

    Some peoples’ brain should be required.

    Thank you.

    As biden attacks and shuts down oil and gas operations in the country he has members of his energy program mock the country about not driving electric cars that are only 3% ready to buy and .05% to recharge them while on the road. A little over half of the population understand the mockery biden and the unfit members he has laughing at Americans that put them in power to weaken the country. Remember the disconnect the MSM had for the Trump Administration and its policies how do like the policies today has the country come understand the MSM is controlled by the CCP yet. The evidence is starring you at the gas pumps the supermarkets and within a minute the country will watch the hidden tax on every thing one buys will increase a bit every day biden voters you will regret your vote as your monthly costs increase and your earnings wither away. Enjoy your new found misery stay uniformed and watch your lifestyle get uglier this time next year the the country of China will start to look good to ya. China will sell your body organs to the wealthy people don't worry they won't sell your brain the market for your brain does not exist

    A profundity regarding skin color. I have white skin and so did Jeffrey Dahmer, Charles Manson,, Ted Bundy and Adolph Hitler. (You can add Schumer, Pelosi and Biden as well). That coincidence does not mean I have the same principles. Martin Luther King,, Ben Carson and Tim Scott have the same color skin as Al Sharpton and Maxine Waters yet they have nothing else in common.

    Biden and the left is urinating on the people of the United States and having a great time doing it. The America public doesn't seem to care that it is being humiliated and disgraced. Biden is buying off the integrity of its work force with unemployment checks and now offering checks to parents for having children. Great, the retiree gets to help fund this thru social security taxation on earnings already been taxed. What percentage of retiree vote did biden get? I would not vote for a nitwit like biden and I would bet snowflake retirees did vote for biden I am hopeful retirees can absorb the high cost of everything today and not have their Golden Years turn into a shitff life. What are people going to do when electric bill comes at 5% increase and added 15 dollars to a fill up at the gas station and another 20 dollars more at the grocery store sur charge for garbage pickup and any repair bills to your home or vehicle and you haven't gone to the doctor or dentist yea biden is urinating on and laughing at the saps of America and the public is taking it. No one is standing up to the left Coke products are still selling baseball basketball the professional sports teams that supported BLM ANTFIA are selling tickets all the major Corporations that gave money to the Left are still selling the teachers are home collecting tax money and the public lays down while it gets urinated on like a fire hydrant by the dogs of biden.

    So it appears we are truly a banana republic. Using Communist tactics of going after any deemed to threaten their rule. One red nation and one group of Marxist colonies acting like the parasites they are.
    You have to exterminate them. Take no prisoners!

    Tonight Sean Hannity had a short segment on UFO's. I'm betting that the government will finally confirm UFO's (i.e. extra-terrestrials ) when we are no longer afraid of COVID-19 because it is the ideal scenario to control us through fear. Because only the government has the technology to detect this "threat", there can be only one source of information. And because a large percentage of citizens already believe extra-terrestrial life is probable, the fear will be easy to propagate. Maybe there is life elsewhere in the universe or maybe not. You probably never prepared a sermon on ET's though it would make an interesting study. But the Bible clearly states who we should fear, what not to fear and who is in control. I'm excited to see what Christ will do next.

    The Democrat Party shoud be abolished as a blatantly un-American hostile entity. If the Democrat Party completely takes over the US we as a nation will have been completely destroyed. Yes, I know a very strong statement yet it would be true sad to say.

    Mike, I am so glad you send this column every day. It's the only way we can get accurate news. It's such a shame our great nation has come to this. I just wonder how the democraps & the big shots in Silacone Valley are going to feel when they are being ruled by Chinese communists when we can't pay the interest on the trillions they have borrowed from China. Of course, they won't be the only ones hurting as we all will be. I pray republicans & Donald Trump can do something before that comes to pass. God bless you, Mike, & keep on keeping us informed.

    Question for you!

    Why doesn't the "Castle Doctrine" apply to business owners protecting their businesses from rioters and looters?

    If it did there would be a whole lot less rioting and looting and more work for the coroner!
