THE EVENING EDITION By Mike Huckabee

Good evening! Here are some stories from me that I think you will want to read. 


DAILY BIBLE VERSE 


THE LATEST NEWS

1.  PERSECUTION UPDATE FOR NIGERIA:

I’ve written before about the perilous situation for Christians in Nigeria, where radical militia groups are targeting them for terrorist violence, displacement, forced conversions and marriages, and other atrocities. This is being done as the government turns a blind eye and silences Christian leaders and journalists who try to expose the truth by cracking down on free speech and jailing them on trumped-up charges.

Yet the Epoch Times reports that the Biden State Department inexplicably removed Nigeria from its list of “countries of particular concern” in advance of Secretary of State Antony Blinken visiting Nigeria to sign a $2.1 billion assistance agreement.

The State Department claims the money will support health care, education, agriculture, and good governance. But local Christians fear it will help prop up the oppressive government and fuel more violence against them.

Click the link to read more and hear from the Rev. Joseph Hayab, the brave chairman of the Kaduna state chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, who, along with four other representatives of Nigerian civil society, met with Blinken privately and warned him, “Our government is full of lies, and to make sure the world does not get the truth of what is happening in Nigeria, they are against free speech.”

Hayab said he’s baffled by Bliken removing Nigeria from the "nations of concern" list and saying things are improving there “because Christians in Nigeria and others suffering persecution feel like they cannot rely on the U.S. government to help them. That is like telling a sick man in the hospital to go home to die.”

Sadly, a lot of people around the world are learning that they can’t rely on this Administration to help them, or even to make sane, humane foreign policy decisions. Maybe they believe that helping to enrich the oppressive Nigerian government will convince them to end religious oppression. How is that working out with China?

2. MODERATE DEMOCRATS DON'T EXIST IN THE HOUSE:

Now that the House has forced through President Biden’s “Build Back Bankruptcy” bill and sent it to the Senate with zero Republican votes, Redstate.com has a list of five toxic elements of it that you probably weren’t told about. Bear in mind that five only begins to scratch the surface, but these five do include something to infuriate everyone across the political spectrum, from huge tax cuts for blue state millionaires to funding abortions with your tax money.

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson/2021/11/22/selfdestructive-house-democrats-will-own-these-five-provisions-in-bidens-spending-scheme-n2599351?utm_campaign=rightrailsticky3

And next November, when you’re being told that some of the House Democrats are “moderates,” remember that all but one of them in the House voted to pass this. Sens. Sinema and Manchin are the only ones in the Senate who aren’t lined up to support it and they’re being savaged by their own party for not falling into lockstep. You’d have better luck snapping a photo of Bigfoot riding on the back of the Loch Ness Monster than finding an actual moderate Democrat in the House. And in the Senate, they’re so rare that Sinema and Manchin ARE Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster.


3. TEACHERS:

The Democrats are promoting the fact that the #1 profession among their donors is “teacher.” Considering the way Democrats in DC are weaponizing the FBI to go after parents who don’t want far-left, racist propaganda inflicted on their kids in school, some conservatives are saying that Republicans should thank the Dems for making that fact public and put it in campaign commercials.

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/leahbarkoukis/2021/11/22/top-dnc-donorreported-occupation-n2599464

Personally, I’m surprised. I assumed that teachers would rank as Democrat donors behind socialist billionaires, professional rioters and career criminals.

4. PRAY FOR WAUKESHA:

Please join us in praying for the victims and their families in Sunday’s horrific tragedy in the Milwaukee suburb of Waukesha, where someone drove a red SUV at high speed through a police line and plowed into a Christmas parade. At least five people are known dead at this writing, and more than 40 injured, including children. This link from Fox News will have continually updated information:

https://www.foxnews.com/live-news/wisconsin-waukesha-suv-plows-crowd-christmas-parade

Police have arrested a “person of interest.” I won’t give his name until it’s more official, but he’s a career criminal and registered sex offender with a history of resisting arrest, obstruction, battery, statutory sexual seduction, strangulation and suffocation, property destruction, illegal firearm possession, drug related charges, domestic violence and bail jumping. Despite that record, he was just released from jail two days ago on three misdemeanor and two felony charges after posting cash bail of just $1,000.

https://www.westernjournal.com/christmas-parade-massacre-suspect-reportedly-identified/

There were a number of disgusting comments from the left on social media, trying to tie the assault to the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict. It takes an awful lot of “not raised right” to use something like this to try to score cheap political points, but that’s how badly social media has eroded basic human decency. Many of the tweets were deleted after the arrest came, and the truth didn’t appear to be helpful to their cause at all. Sadly, some didn’t even have enough shreds of decency left to realize how awful they were being.

https://twitchy.com/samj-3930/2021/11/21/lowlife-cbs-6-alum-thinks-horrific-incident-at-waukesha-wi-christmas-parade-is-the-perfect-opportunity-to-make-garbage-takes-about-rittenhouse/

While we pray for the victims, we should also pray for a moral reawakening as well.


5. OUR "RACIST SYSTEM": 

As irresponsible politicians, activists, celebrities and “journalists” continue trying to gin up riots over the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict while repeating debunked lies about the case, one of the more aggravating clichés to me is their claim that in our “racist system,” a young black man who shot someone would never be acquitted on grounds of self-defense.

https://www.westernjournal.com/black-man-acquitted-self-defense-day-rittenhouse-busts-myth-unjust-justice-system/

I guess they were so preoccupied ranting angrily and ignorantly that they failed to notice that on the exact same day that Rittenhouse was acquitted by a jury of his peers, a verdict came in on the case of Andrew Coffee IV in Gifford, Florida (note: a red state.) Coffee was charged with the murder of his girlfriend Alteria Woods and the attempted murder of four sheriff’s deputies after they staged a raid of his home in the middle of the night. Police claim they announced their presence, but Coffee claimed he was asleep, he thought a flash-bang set off by deputies was gunfire by home invaders, and he grabbed his gun and fired. Deputies returned fire.

Coffee’s attorneys argued that he believed he was acting in self-defense, and the jury agreed, acquitting him on five of the six charges. He was found guilty of being a felon in possession of a gun, but that was hard to argue with. Unlike Rittenhouse, who, despite the many false claims of his critics, did have a legal right to carry the gun and didn’t take it across state lines (Jesse Watters made the good point that liberals don’t seem to care at all about our national borders, but they seem obsessed with the sanctity of the Wisconsin state line.)

https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/486902/

So there’s an example of how the legal system in America really operates, when it operates fairly and isn’t tainted by politics and mob threats. Anyone, regardless of race, can assert their right to fire a gun in self-defense (in this case, even at police officers), and if a jury of his fellow citizens who examine all the testimony and evidence agrees, then he’s acquitted. You can agree or disagree with any particular trial outcome, but don’t attack the system unless you can come up with a better one.

6. RIDICULOUS LIARS:

On the subject of people spouting ridiculous lies about the Rittenhouse trial and ridiculous people believing them, here are a couple of the worst offenders, and to nobody’s surprise, one is a university Twitter account and the other is an MSNBC host.

https://redstate.com/nick-arama/2021/11/21/msnbc-and-james-madison-u-duke-it-out-for-worst-rittenhouse-misinformation-crown-n479649

I think we might have to update humorist James Thurber’s motto for bad journalists: “Don’t get it right, just get it Rittenhouse.”


7. TWO MAJOR INTERVIEWS YOU WILL WANT TO SEE:

Tucker Carlson got the first post-trial interview with Kyle Rittenhouse (you didn’t think it would be CNN or MSNBC, did you?) It airs on his Fox News show tonight, but here’s a sneak peek where Rittenhouse says that the trial was never about race, it was about self-defense. He also says he’s not a racist person, and he supports the BLM movement and peaceful protests. That must be why he didn’t choose CNN: their definition of a “peaceful protest” is “Not ALL of the buildings are on fire.”

And on Sunday night, Mark Levin had a wide-ranging interview with former President Trump. Here’s a clip. I’ll post it all as soon as it’s fully available online.

    That rumbling they hear back in their home districts belonging to the Democrats and RINOS , who
    voted for the BIDEN BUILD BACK BROKE PLAN is not their re-election but a scalping party just
    waiting until they return from their vacations and knowing that comes 2022, Their scalps will
    blowing in the winds just like at the LITTLE BIG HORN in South Dakota.

    Governor Huckabee, your article Nigeria Update was an eye-opener. Obvious to me, Blinkin just pledged billions to fund persecution of Christians in Nigeria. We left the Taliban with millions of dollars in military equipment, while leaving Americans there to be persecuted by the Taliban. Is this why we’re sending billions more to foreign countries instead of taking care of our own? Are we (the Biden Administration) funding a Global War against Christians under the guise of Climate Control?

    I am sorry but though I am glad Mr Rittenhouse was acquitted if he supports BLM (which is enjoying poll rates as bad as Joe and the Ho) he loses my support.

    The Malicious murder of the Christmas Parade Human Beings shows how much evil this country is housing. From the Oval Office to the people responsible for allowing dangerous murderers to be free to murder. The felonies that are charged in the murder of 5 Human Beings should have tow portraits shown on the media outlets the person that released the murderer and the murderer itself the two have teamed up destroy 5 Families and at least 40 more attempts to murder Human Beings and caused horror of millions more. Loss of life means nothing to these evil people, Biden himself does not care about loss of life around the world including American military and citizens in a different country where we have spent trillions of American assets. Life to these evil people is everywhere in this country and the Biden Administration endorses it. Like a man that endorses evil himself quoted Elections have Consequences and Evil is what America has today unchecked and lawful.

    There are no Democrats. They have become the Communist Party USA and, per Communist philosophy, they reject God and Christ as myths.

    Why would any American that believes the constitution is the foundation of our country ever listen or support Joe Biden? So many reasons to not trust joe Biden the president or the MSM the two are so corrupt and dishonest two of the most powerful organizations in the world destroying what is left of a great country. Not only will this population become less free the world has no one left to look for help every day the sunrises Joe Biden and the msm will do a dishonest deed just like Minneapolis the state of Wisconsin New York California and Illinois and the dishonest beat goes on
