“Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.”

Psalms 119:90

Quote Of The Day

By Mike Huckabee

Many conservative pundits have pointed out that when a Republican screws up, that's the story, but when a Democrat screws up, the Republican reaction is the story. It's called the "Republicans Pounce" trope. Dana Perino of Fox News' "The Five" had a jaw-dropping example of it that's our "Quote of the Day":

"I notice one of the headlines in Bloomberg today is 'Biden's GOP Opponents Seize on Rising Prices and the Slower-Than-Expected Pace of Hiring' when the headline could've just as easily been 'Experts Proven Right.'"

Our Cateresque President

By Mike Huckabee

A couple of brutally hilarious memes about our Carteresque President who’s now presiding over gas shortages and long fuel lines as well as the return of stagflation:

Along those lines, I know our law enforcement agencies are searching for the hackers who shut down the oil pipeline, causing irreparable harm to Americans, but what are they going to charge them with: extortion, terrorism or impersonating the President?


By Mike Huckabee

Just six months ago, despite the pandemic lockdowns hamstringing the economy, America had fairly secure borders, abundant and inexpensive oil and gas, and historic peace deals were being signed in the Middle East, thanks to Iran and Hamas being held in check by the US and its allies. And whether you loved Trump or hated him, you couldn’t deny that he had boundless energy and seemed to be working 24/7 to Make America Great Again.

Now…well, Americans voted for “change,” and they’re getting it good and hard.

After less than four months of Joe Biden, the borders are open and we have a triple humanitarian, crime and national security crisis. The Vice President is supposed to be handling this, even though we’re up to day 49 since she was given that job and she’s yet to even visit the border or hold a press conference.

Israel was forced to retaliate after Hamas and Palestinian militants fired about 160 missiles at Israeli civilian areas. In response, Rep. Ilhan Omar condemned Israel for launching military strikes during the sacred month of Ramadan – and never mind that they were in retaliation for unprovoked missile attacks launched on Israeli civilians during the sacred month of Ramadan. Her outrage is, shall we say, “selective.”

Gas prices, which had already been on the rise since January, thanks to President Biden shutting down the Keystone XL Pipeline project and targeting America’s oil and gas industries for extinction, have spiked to a six-month high after hackers (suspected to be Russian-based, though that’s not yet confirmed) forced a shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline.

Meanwhile, there are reports in the Southeast of long lines at gas stations and many stations running out. We’re assured that this will probably be fixed by the end of the week, but it wouldn’t take long for a shortage of truck fuel to impact inventories in stores.

Oh, but don’t worry about the empty pumps and long lines! The New York Times assures us those don’t exist, and would the New York Times lie to you?

(Side note: Maybe our intelligence agencies should have been paying more attention to monitoring foreign threats to our critical infrastructure than to monitoring social media posts by Trump voters to prevent an imaginary insurrection. I have written several times over the years about cyber threats to America. If they’d just monitored the Huckabee newsletter, they would have known that. I fear our intelligence agencies now have no more intelligence than the politicians currently in charge of them, and that’s scary.)

We’re also seeing headlines like “Stocks slide as inflation spikes, oil nears $66 per barrel”…,hp1r

And “Consumer prices climb at fastest pace since September 2008.”

So, with everything seemingly falling to pieces (I didn’t even mention the shockingly dismal jobs report, a result of Biden’s anti-business policies and paying people more money to stay unemployed than to work), I’m sure our President was burning the midnight…uh, wind-powered lantern…to deal with it all.

Well, not exactly. In fact, a lot of people are starting to wonder if we even have a President anymore.

As that op-ed points out, Biden issued no public statements on Israel or the Pipeline shutdown in 24 hours. Comments from his surrogates have been confusing and contradictory, such as blaming Israel for being attacked or suggesting the attack on the Pipeline and whether to pay ransom are a “private sector” matter.

This article also notes that the Palestinians hadn’t fired a rocket at Jerusalem since 2014 – until this week. Biden resumed giving them “aid” money, and Trump’s not there anymore, so guess what they’re doing.

All of this silence and grasping for answers is stirring quite legitimate concerns that there may be nobody home at the White House, in more ways than one.

Aaron Babbitt interviewed

By Mike Huckabee

Aaron Babbitt, the husband of slain pro-Trump protester Ashli Babbitt, gave an interview to National Report about the government’s decision not to prosecute or even identify the Capitol Police officer who shot his wife to death and about the family’s wrongful death lawsuit.

Just looking at the evidence, and the comparison of the defense of violent leftwing protesters and prosecutions of cops who shot suspects who were attacking them or others, and the police killing of the unarmed and unthreatening Babbitt, it’s hard to draw any conclusion other than that there are two justice systems. Certain groups can get away with anything, while it’s open season on the other.

Here’s a salient quote from Aaron Babbitt, but read the whole article. If you disagree with this, then please don’t try to tell me you care about “justice” and police reform:

“There has to be justice for Ashli and we’re quickly finding out that the Capitol Police department just operates on with full autonomy and basically no rules. And the sad thing on top of that is the same people that are pushing these bills for police reform, they have their own private security in the form of a police department and they’re protecting that officer and they don’t want anything to happen.”

CNN is learning a hard lesson

By Mike Huckabee

Here's what happens when you build your entire brand around attacking one politician who suddenly leaves office:

In January, CNN (which made the choice of becoming a 24-7 anti-Trump propaganda outlet instead of a news channel) averaged 2.74 million viewers. Now that those viewers no longer need their daily fix of Trump hate, CNN's primetime lineup on Friday averaged fewer than 800,000 viewers. As Joe Concha points out, that’s two-thirds of their audience gone just since Trump left office.

Stephen Colbert must be terrified that he’ll have to learn how to be funny.

Be careful what you wish for

By Mike Huckabee

Last week, the International Weightlifting Federation modified its criteria for Olympic participants, which has opened up the possibility of male weightlifters who “identify” as women competing against female weightlifters. Take a look at the photo of the leading “trans” weightlifter at the link, and you’ll see why actual women weightlifters (I refuse to use the idiotic term “cisgender” when we already have a term for this: “women”) are alarmed that this will be incredibly unfair to them.

Of course, caring about what these women think and how it would crush their lifelong efforts to be Olympians like a barbell crushes a bug would require the “woke” elites who run these organizations to prioritize women’s rights over trans rights. And in the current trendy pecking order, women come last.

On the plus side, this could finally provide the tipping point at which the public openly rebels against the media, the activists and the Biden Administration with their denials of basic biological science and their attempts to brainwash us all into believing there’s no difference between a woman and a man who “identifies” as a woman. Imagine seeing that Incredible Hulk towering over all the women as “she” power-lifts some huge amount of iron then snatches away the Gold Medal for Best “Female” Weightlifter. That could be broadcast on international TV in front of an audience of billions of outraged and incredulous viewers, providing the starkest example possible of the unfairness and absurdity of the whole trans sports movement.

Frankly, if I were a trans activist, I’d probably be doing everything I could to prevent this rather than pushing for it. This is a “be careful what you wish for” moment if I’ve ever seen one.

A Reader Writes Back... 

In response to a pro-life story:

We (my husband and I) are now great grandparents to 3 beautiful children. One is just 8 days old. To see those tiny fingers and toes, that cute little nose and her silky dark hair melts our hearts. How can anyone destroy a new life so precious made in the likeness of God? Tell me they aren't a child! So sad that people can do such a thing. So sad.

    Seems we're living in a horror movie. I received a donation request from you through the mail and am sending what I can. Living in south Texas has been rough for 3 years now. Still have trees out with roots out of the ground on one side, and then this years ice storm killed more trees on my acre so my poor little social security check has been stresssed keeping repairs on my lawn equipment and chain saws. I'm almost 79 years old, have 8 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren who are going to be suffering for years because of the crimes being done by our gangsters behind the wall in Washington. My oldest son is a minister,and the middle one is a chief deputy. One of my grandchildren is the most precious little darlings I've ever loved..adopted and dark skinned, and I'm terrified that the hate between blacks and whites might do with her mind, should they allow her to watch any of the hate being spread by what we call a government........more like communism already. How much can we take? God's the only hope we have left. God bless you and yours. Praying that your precious daughter wins her seat .

    Where do you have the results of your polls?

    Governor Huckabee, we absolutely love you, your commentary, your willingness to “read the news so we don’t have to,” and on and on!!!
    I respectfully disagree with one sentence in the articles above, and to date, I don’t remember ever having disagreed with even part of a sentence you have written or spoken on your great show.
    It’s the sentence saying,
    “Americans voted for change and did they ever get it!!” (Not exact words.) I forgot to copy it before I started writing this.
    We are two of those people who do not believe that Biden actually received a majority of the ACTUAL votes. I totally respect the fact that you have never said you definitely believe the election was stolen because none of the proof has been accepted yet as truth. In fact, that makes us trust you all the more. But quietly we pray that someday the truth will be shown fully, that an overwhelming majority of Americans voted to continue to make America great. And may I add this: I don’t know one single Christian who looked to Pres Donald Trump as their savior as some have said and for that matter even my non Christian friends who supported him were not looking to him as savior. The Christians I know believe that he was like Ruth in that he was chosen for such a time as this. I have read several articles now of Christian leaders who are saying that God allowed Biden to be put in office because we Christians depended on Trump instead of God.
    I agree that God allowed Biden to become the President because it is He Who raises up kings and also brings them down. Currently, He is the only One Who knows for sure why He did.
    Anyway, lots more on that subject in my heart, but in the end, we are truly thankful for you and for your willingness to still accept comments!!
    Thank you!!!
    May blessings be poured out on you and your family.
    Teresa and Gary P

    Biden is the poster boy for the person to fail at what issue is put to him. I am sure he failed to win this election for president on real voting; biden needed an unlawful manufactured voting change of laws to be given the election. I have 2 generations of family I will leave behind when my last breath is taken knowing what this corrupt biden is doing is more than disturbing. At this time God seems to be the only problem solver unless we rid the country of the CCP influence. MAGA bring back a Trump!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Governor, I'm just a little leery when I hear the Democrats and the media blame Russia for something after using it to disrupt President Trump. If you use the same logic as the Russia hoax, the Democrats either hacked the pipeline themselves or are clueless as to what happened, but want everyone to think it was Russia. Just saying

    I guess women weight lifters can start using steroids now since if they test the man that has a mental disorder and is pretending to be a woman with his original package will test positive for testosterone!

    Every day bombarded with the latest left created crisis. Am glad I ignore most, even religious news. They are also pushing ratings by parroting the Left's virus fears and othersm even now some church groups involved in distributing illegal aliens across the nation. It's all about money it seems
    While here in my state of Washington a Mexican cartel has set up distribution centers for Fentanyl.
    In Victoria the CCP has set up spycams in all Chinese restaurants!
    God has left us to reap the consequences of worshipping other God's. If one believes the Bible you will understand.
    Some downright evil people out here. I met a minister who is demonized.

    The Joe Biden Administration reminds of the story of the Little Dutch Boy
    trying to stop all the leaks in the Dike,. what happened the dike won and
    the little boy was drowned. That is what is happening right now. too many
    leaks and enough intelligent people to stop the leaks.

    If "men identifying as women" want to participate in sports, let them have their own category. Their participation in women's sports categories is so unfair to the real women.

    Such people should have to go through hormonal transformation that decreases their testoterone levels and increases their estrogen levels. If they prefer to identify as a woman, then their hormone levels should be the same as a legitimate, average woman. The hormone levels of such a person should be checked within minutes of them participating in an event.

    If a standard male or female athlete can be tested for steroids, then these individuals can be tested for testosterone and estrogen levels in addition to steroids.

    Fairness to the real women athletes needs to be displayed for their sake!!!

    How I first determine if a "news" story has any factual basis.

    I the words baseless claims, or false claims are used instead of the more simple word claims is used in the story, it's not worth reading, because it apparently just another sensationalized biased smear piece of useless writing..

    I have said, from day 1 (Jan.6, 2021) Ashli Babbitt's death was pure MURDER. The coward officer was inching out from his hole and instead of aiming at the men, garbed in defensive flak jackets and visible defensive equipment, that coward capitol cop saw a defenseless woman and figured he'd use her as a deterrent to the mob and used her as an example of HIS "power". That cop is nothing but a murdering coward, killing an unarmed WOMAN instead of an armed mobster. He needs to be prosecuted and imprisoned for MURDER, pure and simple.

    For one pedophile Joe is a brain dead retarded slimy disgusting idiot along with his vice president that stated she is proud to have slept her way through politics cackle cackle . So sad maybe they will put Trump in office when they find out how massive the voter fraud actually is.

    Wouldn't it be great if biden was paid not to work. The Nation would have gasoline, the border would really be closed, oil pipelines would be built instead of shut down. Peace in the middle East would be peaceful people would be paid to work and open our economy up the cost of goods would slightly go up and our Armed Forces would continue to be rebuilt. Oh if only biden was paid to stay in his basement what a wonderful world it would be.

    Please note:
    I inadvertently clicked "No" when I participated in the survey 'Should female athletes be forced to compete with biological males.' My sincere intention was to select "YES" and if there is any way to correct my choice, I would gladly do so.

    I LOVE your daily posts and have been a true fan of yours for many years, Mike Huckabee!! I love my country and thank the Lord for men such as yourself who fearlessly stand for justice and righteousness!

    God bless you and your family!
