Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil.

For those who are evil will be destroyed, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.

Psalm 37:8-9

2. Even Nancy Condemns China...:

The Winter Olympics began yesterday, and while I hope that all our US athletes dominate, I join with those who are upset that the Games are being held in China. It’s giving a worldwide propaganda platform to a nation that’s distinguished itself in recent years not just for being the source of a worldwide pandemic, but for religious persecution, slave labor, genocide, human rights violations, crackdowns on free speech, massive public surveillance efforts and military aggression toward its neighbors.

It’s so bad that even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi condemned China and urged corporations to speak out against the oppressive government.

However, she had very different advice for US athletes who are actually going to China. She said, “I know there is a temptation on the part of some to speak out while they are there. I respect that, but I also worry about what the Chinese government might do to their reputations, to their families… Do not risk incurring the anger of the Chinese government because they are ruthless.”

Liberals have never told athletes not to make political statements before; in fact, they’ve encouraged it. And this is certainly the perfect time, and the perfect stage, in which to call out China. Being afraid to speak out against such brutality and injustice is not the American way, or at least it didn’t used to be. But to be fair, I can understand her concern about the athletes’ safety, even though some say China wouldn’t risk the backlash of retaliating while a global spotlight is shining on them.

In the end, it’s going to be up to each athlete to decide how to deal with China, although I have to assume that if any of them don’t understand what an oppressive surveillance state it is, the way they’ll be treated while they’re there should give them a clue. It’s up to them to let their consciences be their guides.

If nothing else, it is a positive development that even Nancy Pelosi is now on record as condemning China and calling on US corporations to stop groveling and stand up to them.

Rape a classmate in the girls’ bathroom and they’ll cover for you. Show up at school without a facemask and they’ll charge you with a felony and send you to jail for a year.

4. “Rock And Roll” Hall of Fame Nominees Revealed

By “Huckabee” pop culture guru Pat Reeder (

The “Rock and Roll” Hall of Fame just released its list of nominees for 2022 inductions. They include such venerable “rockers” as Eminem, Dolly Parton, Dionne Warwick, Carly Simon and Lionel Richie. Now you know why I put the quotes around “Rock and Roll.”

In a related story, Jethro Tull, which still isn’t in the “Rock and Roll” Hall of Fame, just celebrated their 55th year by releasing their 22nd studio album, “The Zealot Gene,” which is getting rave reviews.

Ian Anderson is also working on material for a new Tull album, likely coming next year, but certainly before they ever get into the “Rock and Roll” Hall of Fame…

Incidentally, last week, Laura and I saw original Jethro Tull guitarist Martin Barre live with his own band doing mostly Tull material, and he was jaw-droppingly great. If he comes to your town, don’t miss him.

Finally, here are just a few performers who are still NOT in the “Rock and Roll” Hall of Fame:

Meat Loaf, Ted Nugent, Blue Oyster Cult (who also just released a great new album), Bad Company, the Guess Who, Little Feat, Boston, Foreigner, ELP, Blood Sweat & Tears, Mott the Hoople, Humble Pie, Thin Lizzy, Bachman Turner Overdrive, Kansas, Grand Funk Railroad and Styx.

But yeah, by all means, let’s induct Eminem, Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie and Dionne Warwick. Rock On!!!

6. The Border: This Is Their Plan:

Do you think that having America’s borders opened wide and tens of thousands of unvetted, possibly criminal illegal immigrants pouring in, with many of them being dispersed across the nation by secret air flights, is a bad thing? Well, then, you’re definitely at odds with the Biden Administration officials in charge of overseeing immigration, who believe that “this is how government is supposed to work” and that the destruction of our border security measures was “a beautiful thing to watch” and who brag that “No one heard about it because it ran so smoothly.”

I am not making this up. Yes, those are direct quotes from an unnamed Biden official to (believe it or not) the New Yorker magazine.

So when you hear Biden say anything about “getting the border under control,” remember, he not only has no intention whatsoever of doing that, but opening it up and flooding America with illegal entrants was the plan from the beginning, and behind closed doors, they’re high-fiving each other over how well it’s going. To them, the destruction of America's border security is not a problem, it’s a goal they've achieved.

Of course, we all knew they had no serious intentions of fixing border security when they put Kamala Harris in charge of it. She’s avoided the border so completely that she no longer even eats at On The Border. She not only can’t keep illegal aliens out, she can’t even keep her own staffers in.

    If the U.S and other corporations ( and the DNC really) don't care about slavery and genocide under their noses and on their watch that they profit from why would be believe pray tell that they care about it happening 150 or more years ago?

    Mike, by and large I am in total agreement with your comments and views on your website and on TV, and I don't even live in the USA! However, this is not the case eith your comments regarding athletes at the Winter Games in China. You are the second TV talk-show host/brosdcaster in a week to call for US athletes to speak out at the Winter Games - Sean Hannity, of whom I am also a big fan - was the other that I am aware of - against the oppressive and brutally authorotarian Communist regime being overseen by the CCP in China. So far - to the best of my knowledge - one Dutch presenter has already been forcibly removed from the air-waves by the Chinese authorities during a LIVE broadcast:

    despite prior warnings to everyone that comments made against the CCP during the games will not be tolerated. While I detest everything that Ms. Pelosi purports to stand for - in reality she and the Democrat party stand for nothing - to my total horror I find myself in total agreement with her comments on this occasion. Given the warnings by the CCP, and their actions so far, I regard it as highly irresponsible for anyone to call on young, highly impressionable and idealistic young people to speak out on their behalf against the CCP while in China. While North Korea may be a different country to China, the regime is the same, and so are the consequences of speaking out against the CCP while in China at the Games. Have you and Sean Hannity so quickly forgotten Otto Warmbier (RIP), and Jack Ma, Peng Shuai? I suspect that if you and Sean had relations competing at the Games you might not be so quick to encourage them to speak out and risk their lives in so doing. If you and Sean Hannity wish to see protests against the CCP at the Games then perhaps you could both book a flight, bring your microphone and camera, and risk your own lives, but not those of the young athletes who are there only to compete. Given the debacle in Afghanistan, and the weakness and obvious fragility of the feckless current occupant of the Oval Office, do you think there would be any repercussions for China if they arrested (or worse) any of those athletes who might choose to speak out as proxies foe US broadcasters? Given the Oval Office response, and that of the rest of the world governments, to the escape/release of the China Virus on the world, and the deaths it has caused thus far? I think not. I would urge you and other broadcasters to please think and reflect carefully before using your respective media platforms to call on any athlete to protest against the CCP while in China at the Games. If you cannot speak out in the US against the prevailing liberal, woke narrative without being cancelled, shunned, fired etc., what chance do you think you would have in China? We can all each make a tiny protest simply by not watching the Games on TV.

    Does this destruction of America rise to the level of requiring another “Boston Tea Party?” I can’t be the only one fed up to my eyeballs just over “We The Serf” STUPID taxpayers paying for the airfares and bus trips to repatriate ALL these “ILLEGAL ALIENS “ into cities and towns all across this country????????

    For every Illegal that receives Tax dollars should be hunted down and ordered to pay back the funds so illegally received and a punitive sentence to the source that signed the check; with every fund sent the office leader receives a sentence for theft of tax dollars, what ever that may be. I can not get a tax exemption on my social security that Had already been taxed but illegals are receiving payments to break our Nations law. Both those issues are criminal in the way I see it and that may also be high fived by biden and his stooges.

    If the Democrats were truly against China, why even allow the Olympics to take place there? We should have said NO to Beijing or any place in China, to have anything to do with Olympics, and not send any of our young vulnerable athletes to the Olympics this year. We should have had our own Winter Olympics here in America at Lake Placid again. Or why even have Olympics anymore as there is cheating going on everywhere in sports now, regarding the trans...bologna going on. It is all political now, and not true competition. Look at how the NFL, MLB, NBA, hockey, horse racing, etc., any sports in this country and world, is all political and unfair. The whole 'woke' bologna, and cancel culture BS, CRT, etc. Where are the CRT proponents' outrage that China is racist and anti-human rights? If they were truly against racism, why aren't they protesting to NOT allow China to host anything that has to do with humans and human rights?

    What may be the only thing to stop China is a 'test' by all the NATO allies to use China to test the same things that 'China tests' into the sea? Or maybe the Taliban can 'test' their things on China and not on Israel? Instead of trying to ruin America, why don't the Democrats try to ruin China instead? That effort would really make a difference for human rights, instead of keeping American citizens locked up for no good reason. Russia, China, Iran, et al, are all the evil empires and any country who is for human rights, should focus their money on obliterating those countries, and not on democratic nations nor 'climate change' pseudo-science. Those three evil empires are actually the ones who are ruining the climate anyway. Plus, Africa where there is horrible civil war going on all over that continent. Why give any of them a pass?

    When I was in South Korea in 1989 you could feel the fear they have about the North possibly invading them at any time. I would say that it would be the say way in China . I thank God that I am not there.
    P. S. must keep in mine that China is a communist country and communism is our "ENEMY"!
