Hysterical news coverage

July 28, 2018 |

 The media have been so desperate to make sure you don’t notice the EU caving to President Trump on tariffs, North Korea starting to keep its promises and GDP growth surging to 4.1% that they've been filling the news this past week with hysterical trivialities. 



The spin-o-rama reached its peak with the four-alarm headline scoop that a sleazy lawyer who’d just been caught telling a massive lie the very day before planned to give his word of “honor” that President Trump knew about a meeting where someone from Russia promised campaign dirt on Hillary – a meeting that took place nearly two years ago, that came to nothing and wasn’t illegal.  And all this hot gas came from media outlets that yawned bigger than tired hound dogs at the news that Hillary’s campaign had funneled $10 million through a law firm to buy campaign dirt on Trump from Russians, which the FBI then got a FISA court to accept as “evidence” to spy on his campaign.  And they seriously wonder why people now prefer to get their news from Facebook, YouTube or Magic 8-Balls?

Well, here are two stories that were almost completely overlooked, yet when you put them together, they blow a gaping hole in one of the biggest midterm election narratives of the left. 


First story: in an unprecedented ruling, a federal judge sided with the liberal leaders of Philadelphia who severed ties with Catholic Social Services, an adoption and foster care agency that’s been finding loving homes for orphans for decades.  Why?  Because the group refused to violate its religious beliefs and stop requiring homes for children to have both a father and a mother.  The judge not only agreed that this was discriminating against lesbian and gay applicants, but actually lectured the Catholics on their own religion, claiming that forcing them to choose between giving up helping needy children or violating their religious beliefs about marriage and parenting does “not constitute a substantial burden on CSS’s religious exercise” or require them to express their “approval of same-sex relationships in contravention of Catholic teaching about marriage. This is not the case.”  Wow, imagine being both a federal judge and the Pope!


In making the ruling, the court ignored the Supreme Court decision involving the Christian baker by finding that the mayor’s intolerant comments about Catholics were “irrelevant” because he’d cut off a non-Catholic Christian adoption agency, too.  I guess if you’re an equal opportunity religious bigot, it’s not bigotry. 


Lesson: To the left, promoting LGBTQ rights is more important than protecting religious freedom or finding homes for orphaned children.




Second, related story:  Because of outrages like the one in Philadelphia, House Republicans introduced the Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act, to protect the right of faith-based adoption services not to be forced either to violate their sacred beliefs or give up helping needy orphans find homes.  Bear in mind, the bill does not ban adoption by same-sex parents.  Any agency that wants to arrange that, can.  It just protects faith-based agencies from being forced to.

And what was the Democrats’ reaction?  They went ballistic. They savaged the effort to help faith-based adoption services stay in business as a “license to discriminate” against the LGBTQ community.




Their leader, Nancy Pelosi (last seen railing that the tax cut was going to cause millions of people to die) was typically understated, releasing a statement reading, "Republicans’ moral bankruptcy reached a sickening new low today.  House Republicans chose to sacrifice the well-being of little children to push a bigoted, anti-LGBTQ agenda, potentially denying tens of thousands of vulnerable children the opportunity to find a loving and safe home."

No, Nancy: that’s what you’re trying to do, by forcing hundreds of faith-based adoption services to go out of business if they don’t bend their religious beliefs to your political beliefs. 




Allow me to remind you that these are the very same people who were recently going ballistic over the children of illegal aliens being separated from their parents.  They would have us believe that that issue was all about their deep and overwhelming concern “for the children.”  I thought I detected a whiff of hypocrisy when I kept hearing them denounce Republicans for “ripping children from their mother’s arms” after they’ve spent the past 40 years glorifying the right to rip children from their mothers’ wombs.  But now the stench of hypocrisy is overpowering.


Nobody is blocking any adoption agency that is not faith-based from placing children in LGBTQ households.  Whether that’s a good idea or not is a separate debate.  What Democrats are doing is part of a continuing crusade to expand LGBTQ rights by crushing First Amendment religious freedom rights.  And if a few thousand needy orphans have to sacrifice their chance to find loving homes, hey: you’ve gotta break a few eggs to make an omelet, right?  


Okay, we all get it, liberals.  You’ve shown us your priorities.  Now, please stop insulting our intelligence by telling us that “what’s best for the children” is one of them.

    The MSM are no longer just biased “reporters” of fake news…
    They are hard core Progressive / Communist activists and need to have their
    licenses revoked for sedition. They are engaged in a daily campaign of
    perpetual propaganda and disinformation that would make Joseph Goebbels

    First of all I want to give thanks to my Roman Catholic brethren for standing up for their convictions. The Roman Catholic Church has been under tremendous scrutiny for recent poor protection of some children under its care, but this has obscured the tremendous work that the Church has always done in taking care of the poor, the destitute, the abused, and now those sacrificed (aborted) to our irresponsible behaviors. The early Christian Church was known for reclaiming the babies left to die, and some early Christians even used that in their names to show their gratitude to the body of Christ.

    Now we have a society attacking its very first freedom, namely freedom to follow its conscience. Christians will never be moved on these fundamental basics of life, family, and freedom of conscience and religion. They can kill us all, but we will never stop valuing life, helping those least able to fend for themselves, and praying for those who persecute us.

    So I urge us all to pray for these people. We can and should insist on our Constitutional rights, but in prayer we have access to one infinitely more powerful. His will be done.

    Thanks for the info. I am a huge prolifer. I am saddened that children will not be able to be adopted because of this Rediculous act. I guess when a liberal political agenda is your religion, you will go to great lengths to keep it going. So sad that it’s people that actually get hurt in all of this. But obviously they don’t really care. Do they!

    Perhaps I'm wrong (I could only hope) but I thought Nancy Pelosi claimed to be a good Catholic? At least a good Christian believer? How can she be anything like it if she believes closing down the most active adoptions agencies in this country? Is she not only a liar, but a heretic? As that by professing a religious bent but totally not living it. Just asking the obvious I guess.

    We need to remember that the witch hunt is NOT about the wrong-doings about liberals. MSM is making sure we remember that--only concentrate on the desired outcome of the kangaroo court. If the information uncovered doesn't lead to a conservative, specifically someone who breathed the same air as Donald Trump, we're going to ignore that info. It's not relevant to the story. Wrong doing in the FBI and DOJ? Didn't lead to Trump/Russia collusion, and we'd really rather the citizens aren't made aware of it. Continued information regarding hilary and DNC collusion? Same. Scream along with those who are crushed (I wonder if they will even be able to make their coffee in the mornings) because adoption agencies CAN deny working with same-sex couples. Too many people, especially, it seems, politicians, seem to forget that there is always another bakery, another adoption agency, etc down the street who may offer the services you are looking for. I'm willing to bet the farm that, if there is an adoption agency set up by an LGBT group that would only work with same-sex couples, that would be different, and that would be their right. I'm guessing that would go unnoticed because they are 1) a "protected" minority and 2) not affiliated with a religion..

    The children are a pawn. First Amendment rights will always prevail over special interest groups. Shame on these judges for not following The Constitution!

    This is a question not about the article you wrote on above but it is important! The House just passed an appropriations bill before ajourning. The Republicans placed in it an item that the President didn't want. They did this behind his back and then scurried out of town like like a pack of rats! Does the President have to sign it. Is this appropriations like the one earlier in the year Defense Sec. Matt is begged for because our military needed the money. Can the President veto it? If he can I hope he does! Maybe you can say something about it on your show tonight. Thank you from an of rats Republican! The back stabbing clown Paul Ryan did this. I am glad he is retiring. He can go home and become a lobbyist.

    What exactly the charge of the "Special Counsel"?
    a. find Russia "interfering" with our 2016 election?
    b. find Russia "colluding" with one of the 2016 Pres. candidates?
    c. find anything you can on Trump to enable an impeachment?

    We have a society which turned on fathers long ago. We have so many issues stemming from the war on men in the US. We now have "no fault divorce" but then custody of the children go to the mother basically by default as if the man was guilty, why isn't it automatic joint custody if there was "no fault"? This is Isaiah 3:12 "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." The result of single mother parenting has created a warped view on all child cases in America. Now they want to throw immigrant children in jail with the parents, when was the last time you saw someone arrested for something like drunk driving and the child also went to jail? They don't, they go into protective custody. With immigrants the studies I read show about 50% of the children coming over the boarder from Mexico are NOT with their parents, rather they were abducted, and nearly 70% that with or without their parents' protection are being sexually assaulted during the journey. Now they want to lock them up potentially with their sexual abusers to suffer even more? Then today's story with Nutty Pelosi saying is discriminating against LBGT (alphabet soup insanity) to allow natural mother and father parents rights to be protected? Studies show that the alphabet soup insanity group tend to sexually abuse children far more than a natural loving mother and father family, so it is clear to me that with all the pedophilia cases coming out that liberal Democrats are supporting the abusers over the children while using the children and special interests as leverage over love, sanity and reality!!

    The left news circuit is unbelievable, as you say. I hope Americans show their disapproval by not voting foreven one Democrat this November!

    Thank you Mike Huckabee, for always giving us the REAL news and illuminating its political and social ramifications. I pray, pray, pray that Americans will not be fooled by the leftist campaign of hate against Conservatives and the values this great Nation was built on, especially that freedom of conscience trumps all other “rights”. Talk about “moral bankruptcy”! It takes my breath away! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if every seat up for grabs in November went to Republicans or Independents (none to Democrats)? It would send a clear message that “We ain’t buying this garbage you’re trying so hard to ram down our throats!”

    It's time we Christians put aside denominatonal differences and joined forces to defeat this anti Christian agenda on the left. Satan dosen't care if we go to church, just as long as we go to DIFFERENT churches! In order to bring a biblically, not politically, correct solution to these issues we must unite!

    What is happening in the City of Philadelphia is absolutely absurd! I have watched this beautiful City continue to spiral downward. As a "Sanctuary City," Philadelphia is gang ridden, dirty, and has high crime rates due to City officials not doing their jobs. Mayor Kenney recently "danced in his office with cameras rolling" when the ruling for Philadelphia as a Sanctuary City "stood!" No one I'm talking to wants Philadelphia to be a Sanctuary City! I keep writing State Representatives and President Trump to please do anything to help the citizens of Philadelphia but I haven't heard anything. I'm starting to believe that the masses in Philadelphia really don't care and would rather choose to be "sheep being led to the slaughter" than fight for our Constitution. And in all places, Philadelphia, the birthplace of America and the birthplace of Freedom. I've also written (tweeted) Betsy DeVos that I truly believe ALL eighth grade students need to pass "the Standard Immigration Test" in order to be promoted to high school. I'm trying, Gov. Huckabee. I'm truly trying.

    Thanks for the info, I just cannot believe , part of our society, has become so anti Christian, as this is what our Nation was founded on. All conservative, needs to vote, and bring back family values...I pray daily for our President, VP & his cabinet..Much of our society have forgotten, about God & declared themselves as their God.. Hopefully our Senate & President, can get us back on course.

    Wonder if there are any regulations they put on agencies that might be Muslim-where it is most likely these agencies will only place muslim children in a muslim home? I'm betting that any agency like that would not bow to allow adoption by non-muslim applicants. Just like at the bakery--if the adoption agency doesn't serve your needs/wants--you go to the next adoption agency down the street.

    You're spot on, Gov. Because they think 'outside the box', it makes all that they think and do, the gospel of the land. And to further their quest, they force organizations to participate in the immorality, or get destroyed. So essentially, the left wants EVERYONE to be fully at fault for everything they do, whether we want to or not, as to ' spread the blame around', and all will be judged, and punished, on the 'same' level. That's how I see it.

    You have done it again. The fact that Mrs. Pelosi has remained speaker for so long says a lot about the liberal establishment. It is not that there is no hypocracy Amon the GOP, but that is overwhelmed by many degrees by the libs. I pray that the GOP prevails in November, otherwise we will spend the next two years on impeachment proceedings. For what? Infidelity, lying, non existent conspiracy, ugly tweets, treason??? Well, ifs the first two, we should have impeached and convicted, Clinton, Roosevelt, Johnson, and Kennedy. For the latter three, prove it to me, don’t just spout off.

  • Joseph Trokey

    People like Pelosi talk about morality when they don't even know what it means. Of course, in one instance morality means one thing, then in another instance it means something else. The definitions they go by are mind boggling. Do they want to know what's immoral? Making a religious organization do something against Gods word.

    GOV. Huckabee first I wish to say Thank You for all that your efforts to bring Arkansas out of the darkness cast upon it by the previous administration.
    Second, I am truly thankful for your continuous efforts in sounding a falcon alarm, against the double standard by the Liberalistist that have tried to put a strangle hold on this nation. All in the name of "PROGRESSIVISM"
    And as you said in this newsletter, 'the whiff of hypocrisy...has turned to a stench...' Well sir as I'm sure you haven't forgotten the wonderful aromatic smell that wafts the moist spring mornings. That smell of fresh chicken manure spread on the gardens and hay fields. Yeah that's the smell of Liberally Applied Politics too.

    Right again, Mike Huckaby! The obvious lack of truth on the left footed progressive side can be blown out so easily with a decent sounding board...and yet their arguments are the only ones sent over public airwaves due to complicity of the media. If a voice of reason meets the duck tape brigade of less than half of the people-where is our argument given a chance? Isn't it time for alternative national media!

    Mike. I did not experience your governorship, nor do I recall much about your time in D.C., but as a former owner of a community newspaper, I tell you that YOU ARE A GIFTED WRITER and an even more profoundly gifted THINKER. Plus, as a contender for the presidency, you are loaded with grace and sharp perception.
