Our Daily Verse...

--------------------------

There is one college in America that only graduates one person at a time and only every 4 years. It’s the Electoral College, and some people want to close it down. In fact, all 480 Democrats running for President say they want to get rid of it, but there are some Republicans who support that as well. And you may think that it’s an archaic and outdated process that needs to be retired along with 8 track tapes and AM transistor radios. But like a lot of things in our Constitution created by the Founding Fathers, there is a reason they created a representative republic and not a pure democracy. So before you say, let’s “kill the college,” let’s understand why we have one.

The founders feared a tyranny of the majority-a nation in which some voices were drowned out and drummed out of the process. It was the rationale of having 3 separate, but equal branches of government, the legislative, executive, and judicial along with a complicated but brilliant set of checks and balances. And instead of having a President elected strictly by a popular vote, they intentionally created the Electoral College by which the President is actually elected by electors in each of the states, based on the votes of the people in that state which have specific electoral votes based on the size of their population and Congressional representation.

Perdue makes a big change for the better

By Mike Huckabee

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue announced this week that two agencies of the USDA would be moved to Kansas from Washington, DC.  If you guessed that went over like a kale salad at my house, you’re right.  Agency employees turned their backs on Perdue in silent protest.  They’re claiming nefarious motives, such as that the move is to impair climate research and that it’s “cold-hearted” to make those poor bureaucrats move out of their natural habitat. 

As always, Democrats in Congress are threatening to scamper to a federal judge to have the move declared illegal.  It’s amazing how powerless the President became the moment Trump won.  Before that, Obama could make laws and treaties all by himself via executive order, when he wasn't lowering the tides by waving his hands.  Now, Trump allegedly doesn't even have the power to undo an Obama order or, apparently, to relocate an office.

 https://www.westernjournal.com/employees-turn-backs-ag-secretary-silent-protest-announces-decision-move-two-agencies/

Perdue said the decision wasn’t made lightly and that it will save taxpayers $300 million over 15 years in leases and other costs. But that didn’t mollify the furious federal employees who can’t believe anyone could be so cruel as to make USDA bureaucrats live way out where a bunch of farmers are. 

Personally, I like this idea.  I say we move all the vital functions of government out of Washington and closer to the people they’re supposed to be serving. It would save money, and make government more responsive and efficient.  Plus, once DC was emptied of everything but politicians and bureaucrats, we could finally save America by building a big, beautiful wall…around Washington.

Fighting for Life in Massachusetts

By Mike Huckabee

Monday at 1 p.m., Massachusetts lawmakers will hold a public hearing on a bill for the state to join New York and Vermont in allowing abortions of viable babies right up until the moment of birth for any reason.  Pro-life activists are urging those who oppose this radical bill to show up for their one chance to make their voices heard before it comes up for a vote.  As Bernadette Lyons, wife of state Rep. Jim Lyons said, “We are not going to let this proud cradle of liberty become the shameful cradle of death.” 

I pray for their success, but it won’t be easy to melt the hearts of stone of those who defend abortion up to (and in some cases beyond) birth.  Some honestly seem to believe that they not only hold the moral high ground, but that their viewpoint is the only valid, acceptable view, case closed.

This week’s escalating assaults on conservatives and pro-life groups by big tech have escalated into all-out war on free speech on the Internet. Read this, then remember to sign up for the pro-free speech Twitter alternative Parler.com, where you will now find me at @MikeHuckabee.

I said I had planned to wait to report on the libel lawsuit against Oberlin College by a bakery that was smeared as racist by radical leftist students with the alleged complicity of the school’s administration.  I was waiting until the “other shoe dropped,” i.e., to see if the jury added punitive damages to the $11.2 million in compensatory damages they ordered Oberlin to pay.  Well, it dropped, and it wasn’t a shoe, it was a combat boot.  The jury awarded the maximum $33 million in punitive damages for a total of over $44 million. 

Maybe this will finally send shock waves to liberal universities to stop coddling and enabling violent and anti-social behavior by students who are supposed to be in college to learn how to be civilized, educated adults, not to throw emotional tantrums at the expense of everyone else’s rights.  And you might be surprised to learn who celebrated this long-overdue blowback against schools that indulge these “social justice warrior” tactics.

Sorry to see that the “ladies and gentlemen” of the press (that might require more than one set of quotation marks) are being just as partisan, petty and hateful toward my daughter Sarah when she’s leaving the White House as they were when she had to deal with their unprofessionalism and partisanship daily.  This story recounts some of their impotent raging, which I predict won't prove any more of an obstacle to her future than a pebble would to a Cadillac.  But it also includes something you might want to bookmark to rewatch on nights when you want to go to bed with a warm feeling: her five greatest smackdowns of arrogant, hostile reporters (i.e., Democratic PR agents with press passes.)

Least Surprising News Ever: In the first four months of 2019, while the Republicans have been stockpiling cash for the 2020 elections, the Democratic National Committee spent more money than it took in and added $3 million to its debt. This is about as shocking as the news that “Water is wet.”  In fact, you could replace both parties' platforms with this news nugget, and you'd get a pretty good idea of what to expect when you voted.

    Too many issues too attack at once, but just FYI the Bill Maher video didn't work, but Sara's did...She is a marvel! The gal has grit! I love the way she lites into the rude ignorant reporters who show no respect for her position.......I know you have to be so very proud of the job she's done, and she should be proud, also...She has been an amazing spokeswoman, advocate for Trump, and I can't imagine that anyone can top the job she's done.l

    Getting rid of the Electoral College is absolutely absurd, it is a Constitutional issue, and the Dems should not be able to strike it down so that their illegals and criminals they plan to allow to vote, would give them an easy victory....oh, and the dead people. This must not be allowed to happen, and I hope they can be stopped....

    Thank you for having Jennifer Oneill on your show tonight, she is still beautiful, in so many ways. The first time I saw her was in Summer of '42, and I'll just never forget that movie because of her performance. What a pleasure to see her again.

    I also have a reformed Christian former prisoner in my life, who served 24 years for something he didn't do...he developed Multiple Myeloma while in prison, and when the prosecutor who helped get him convicted, helped get his release, I took over as his Healthcare POA (I'm a nurse) and helped get him through a Stem Cell Transplant at MUSC in Charleston, SC (God did most of the work, he nearly died). He was able to reunite with his wife, and they have a good life now.

    Anyway, there is too much news for more comment, It's 12:30, so I'm giving it up for tonight.
    Thank you, always for your TRUTH, it is so refreshing in today's political climate...
