Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Psalms 16:11


Chinese rocket falls into the ocean

By Mike Huckabee

The world breathed a sigh of relief Sunday after remnants of a large Chinese rocket crashed into the Indian Ocean near the Maldives and, only by the grace of God or sheer dumb luck, didn’t hit anyone or destroy anything.

NASA still expressed anger at China for “failing to meet responsible standards regarding their space debris.” Every other nation involved in rocket launches is committed to controlled reentries to prevent space junk from crashing into populated areas. But China takes the attitude that most of the world is ocean, so it will probably land there. The chances of it hitting any one person are tiny.

One analyst explained their faulty logic by comparing it to the lottery: yes, your chance of hitting the jackpot may be tiny. But someone is going to hit it, especially if enough people are in the pool. And with China’s rockets, everyone on Earth is in the pool. You won’t hit the jackpot, but it might hit you.

Anyone who is at all surprised that China’s communist government has little regard for human life, whether it’s their own people or those in other countries, and doesn’t care if something they launch causes catastrophic damage elsewhere in the world, really hasn’t been paying much attention to the news over the past year or so.

The Colonial pipeline hack

By Mike Huckabee

Crude oil prices rose today after hackers broke into the computer system of Colonial Pipeline, forcing the company to shut down one of America’s major fuel delivery arteries. It’s not yet clear how bad the ransomware attack is or who’s behind it, but current suspicions point to a cybercriminal gang operating out of Russia.

This once again illustrates how dependent America is on the reliable flow of oil and how dangerous foreign hackers can be. Thank goodness we have a President who made us energy independent, okayed the building of a new major pipeline and banned Chinese, Russian and Iranian companies from providing hardware and software for America’s power grid.

Oh wait, I forgot: we replaced that President with Joe Biden, who reversed all those things! Well, at least someone at the White House finally realized how stupid one of them was. The suspended Trump executive order banning Chinese, Russian and Iranian involvement in our power grid has now been unsuspended. Is it possible that even liberal Democrats are capable of learning from experience? Or did someone with common sense just hack into their brains?

Times Square shooting

By Mike Huckabee

Saturday in New York’s Times Square, two men were having an argument when one pulled a gun and shot several times. He missed the other man, but hit three innocent bystanders, including Skye Martinez, a four-year-old girl who was there with her family to buy toys. Luckily, it appears that the bullet didn’t cause any life-threatening injuries, but I hope you’ll pray for her swift recovery and that of the other victims as well.

The little girl’s teenage aunt told the New York Daily News, “None of us knew what was gonna happen and then it’s like, why did it have to be her? Because she’s 4 years old. Like, why there, how could you? It’s just so many people there. Do you not care about any other people?”

Sadly ,I think we all know the answer to that. But the question shouldn’t just be asked of the shooter but city leaders like Mayor DeBlasio. He’s attacked and defunded the city’s police department, allowing violent crime to skyrocket, and let Times Square, which was reborn as a safe tourist destination thanks to Giuliani and kept that way by Bloomberg, to devolve back into a place where families no longer feel safe.

The NYPD Commissioner fumed, “How many more kids do we need to be shot before we realize that bad policies have consequences and we need action and we need policies regarding laws that have consequences? When is this going to end? How many more people have to be injured, pushed in front of a train, or in this case, a young 4-year-old — toy shopping — shot?”

The president of the Detective Endowment Association agreed, saying, “There’s a direct correlation between this uptick in shootings and bail reform laws and city council laws that handcuffed the police. The people suffering are the people of New York City and the people coming to visit the city.”

Fortunately, the shooter’s face was caught on video, and a manhunt is underway at this writing. Let’s pray he faces justice, and let’s also give a salute to heroic NYPD Officer Alyssa Vogel. A mom to a 6-month-old boy herself, Vogel’s maternal instincts kicked in when the shooting started. She grabbed Skey, ran to the ambulance carrying her, reassured her mother that she’d be okay, then went with her in the ambulance and ran her into the pediatric unit.

Not exactly the image you get of cruel, uncaring police officers from listening to the media, is it?

In another horrific shooting, shortly after midnight on Sunday, a man walked into a birthday party in a mobile home in Colorado Springs, Colorado, opened fire and killed six people and then himself. Not much is yet known about his identity or motive. This is a developing story, so keep an eye on the news for more to come.

New Yorker: Liz Cheney was behind op-ed attacking President Trump

By Mike Huckabee

It looks likely that Rep. Liz Cheney is not going to hold on to her position as chair of the House Republican Conference, largely because of her in-your-face, unrepentant anti-Trump attitude that bleeds over to his supporters, who are a large majority of the Republican base. But if she was counting on the anti-Trump media to throw her a life preserver, they just threw her an anvil instead.

The New Yorker revealed that Cheney secretly orchestrated a January op-ed in the Washington Times in which 10 previous Defense Secretaries (including her dad, Dick Cheney) denounced Trump. The letter falsely accused him (based on pre-election Democrat conspiracy theories) of planning to politicize the military by involving it in disputes over the election.

Thank goodness we now have Joe Biden, who as President would NEVER politicize the military! And why would he involve it in disputes over the election when he could send in the politicized Justice Department instead?

The current frontrunner to replace Cheney is New York Rep. Elise Stefanik, who has Trump’s endorsement. But if he’s judging solely on opposition to Trump, you might wonder why he picked her. Stefanik hasn’t been an outspoken anti-Trumper, but her voting record is almost 100% nay on Trump’s America First agenda. Here’s a rundown of her voting record, from opposing the Trump tax cut and border wall funding to supporting amnesty, transgender troops, the Paris Climate Accord, Obamacare, abortion and other liberal issues.

I’m not saying that Republicans have to support Liz Cheney, but maybe they should do a little more research before leaping to any replacement just because she’s not Liz Cheney.

The weekend brought us more assaults on the Christian tradition

By Mike Huckabee

The weekend brought more news related to assaults on Christian tradition. It’s an open question which is more dangerous to traditional morality and Biblical teachings:

1. Armed oppression by leftist governments hostile to expression of religious faith... (No, I’m not talking about China this time; I’m talking about Canada, where an armed SWAT team swarmed and arrested a pastor for “inciting” people to attend church. For the record, I’m not defending holding indoor gatherings without masks, but the authorities didn’t check to see if the congregants had been vaccinated or already had the virus; they just handcuffed and arrested the pastor for holding the service.)

2. Or liberal church leaders themselves, who are so eager to embrace the latest, leftist “inclusivity” trends that they will trample Biblical doctrine to do so?

Mocking Democrats

By Mike Huckabee

While Democrats try to piously defend their use of the ludicrous phrase “birthing persons” instead of “mothers” on Mother’s Day, it’s getting the mockery it richly deserves. And nobody does it better than the Babylon Bee:

Hilarious story

By Mike Huckabee

As long as I’m making your Monday a little easier with humor, here’s the Babylon Bee on the left’s hysterical claims that asking to see an ID before voting will prevent minorities from being able to vote. The story is hilarious enough, but the photo alone is worth clicking to see.
