BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 

“Huckabee" Preview

By Mike Huckabee

Come celebrate Easter with me tonight on “Huckbee” on TBN! Rep. Chuck Fleishmann will also drop by to tell us how Republicans are dealing with the flurry of radical actions from Democrats. I’ll visit with previous Huck’s Hero Xavier DeGroat, and with Jonathan Roumie and Dallas Jenkins, the star and director of the mega-hit streaming series on the life of Jesus, “The Chosen.” Laugh with Christian comic Brad Stine and some crazy news “In Case You Missed It.” And we’ll cap it all off with some great music for Easter from “The Voice” champion Jordan Smith.

It all starts tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, on TBN. Please note that due to TBN’s special Easter programming, on Sunday, “Huckabee” will air an hour later than normal, at 10 p.m. EST/9 CST. To find out how you can watch TBN, from local cable and broadcast channels to streaming, visit https://www.huckabee.tv and click on “Channel Finder” on the top menu. You can stream previous episodes, highlights and online-only “Digital Exclusives,” including extended interviews, “In Case You Missed It” and “Facts of the Matter” segments, and extra performances by our great musical and comedy guests, all at https://www.huckabee.tv.

Sunday is Coming

By Mike Huckabee

I’d like to wish all of you a happy and safe Easter, and I hope and pray that you will once again be able to celebrate with your families and in your churches.

Easter is the holiest of all holidays in the Christian calendar, but also the most joyful. The miracle of the Resurrection was not only the fulfillment of God’s promise that through His Son, our sins would be forgiven and we could have eternal life, but it also serves as a constant reminder that even in times when all seems dark and hopeless, God will never abandon us.

I hear from so many Christians who are very worried about the state of the world, and understandably so. Anti-Christian forces are on the march and seem to be winning in many ways. They fear that we may never be able to come back from such an aggressive assault.

But if you are feeling that way, then try to imagine how Christ’s followers felt on the day of His Crucifixion. Everything was dark, evil, and appeared hopeless. Those closest to Jesus were in fear for their own lives and felt that all they had devoted themselves to for three years died on that cross. They saw their Master and their hopes and faith buried in a borrowed tomb.

That was Friday. But then came Sunday. It was the day that three women went to the tomb to honor a man who was dead. Instead, they were the first to know that what they had witnessed on Friday wasn’t the last chapter. We all have a lot of Fridays in our lives: bad doctor reports; financial problems; a sick child; broken relationships; dangerous political movements; and for the past year, a deadly virus that derailed our lives and split apart families. But let’s not get lost in our Fridays and think the bad times will never end. Always remember: Sunday is coming. And God is good. All the time.

US Capitol locked down again

By Mike Huckabee

Friday, the US Capitol was locked down again after someone rammed a car through a barrier then attacked officers with a knife. One police officer was injured and another later died of injuries, while the attacker was shot dead by police. Our prayers for the injured officer and the family of the slain officer.

As expected, leftists, who never learn from experience (even extremely recent experience), quickly leaped to the conclusion that the attacker was a Trump supporting white supremacist trying to commit insurrection and they blamed Trump for his assault. In fact, he was identified as a 25-year-old African-American male whose (now deleted) Facebook posts show that he was a follower of the Rev. Louis Farrakhan and donor to the black supremacist Nation of Islam church.

A lot of those incorrect assumption tweets were also deleted, but Matt Margolis at PJ Media saved them for posterity.

You know, if you don’t want to be exposed as a racist hypocrite in situations like this, there are just two very simple rules to follow:

1. Wait until you have the facts before making public accusations.

2. Stop making assumptions about people based on your own prejudices about their skin color or political views.

But then, I guess if you believed in due process, basing your opinions on evidence and judging people by their character rather than the color of their skin, you wouldn’t be an “anti-racist” social justice warrior in good standing, would you?

The MLB knuckles under to the woke mob

By Mike Huckabee

Major League Baseball knuckled under to the woke mob and pressure from our ill-informed President (who is continuing Obama’s tradition of actively badmouthing American cities and businesses for political reasons – remember when Obama urged people not to hold conventions in Las Vegas?) and announced that it’s moving the All-Star game and its spring draft out of Atlanta in retaliation for Georgia passing new election integrity measures.

Critics called the decision “pathetic,” and pointed out that you have to show ID to pick up tickets to attend an MLB game and to buy a beer once you’re inside, but they’re yanking the All-Star Game over Georgia making people show ID to vote (which is backed by 75% of Americans, including large majorities of blacks and other minorities.)

MLB, Coke, Delta Airlines (try getting on one of their planes without showing ID) and (of course) Hollywood movie and TV producers are among the big corporations who appear to be bowing to leftist pressure to punish Georgia for trying to make its elections secure. But it’s possible they might be about to learn a costly lesson that two can play the financial blackmail game, since former President Trump is calling for a boycott of all such companies that fold like cheap card tables every time the leftist Twitter mob yaps.

Trump makes the point that baseball is already struggling for viewers (I suspect those cardboard cutout fans in the stands aren’t entirely due to COVID) and really can’t afford to have 74 million+ Trump voters go find something better to do with their time, like watching “Huckabee” on their DVRs.

I’ve never been a big fan of boycotts, since they tend to harm lower level workers more than “woke” CEOs. But in this case, they started it. Major League Baseball doesn’t seem concerned that its decision will harm regular people who work at the stadium in Atlanta, many of them African-Americans. Maybe hurting their pocketbooks will move their stockholders to remind them that the leftist view isn’t the only view in America, and they're in business to make money, not virtue-signal.

(Just FYI: I recently saw a YouTube video in which a self-professed Diet Coke addict did a March Madness-style blind taste test against other diet colas and was shocked to discover he liked the cheap Big K house brand sold at Kroger better.)

I might also be more sympathetic to their views if they’d actually read the Georgia law instead of leaping on the leftist bandwagon against it and parroting a load of outright lies, like claims that it will make it harder to vote (only illegally), shorten voting hours (it doesn’t; in fact, it expands early voting), ban giving water to people in voting lines (it just bans campaign volunteers from handing out free stuff at polling places, a ban that’s in place in many other states) and return to the days of Jim Crow (much of it just returns to the standards set by the legislature before officials loosened them without authority for the 2020 election.)

As long as I brought up Trump, I’ll remind you that Facebook and Twitter banned Trump because they claim he spreads false, divisive “misinformation.” Well, President Biden has been spreading a number of lies about the Georgia election law, and repeats them even after they’ve been publicly debunked (the Washington Post even gave him “Four Pinocchios” for one of them.) His lies and misinformation are now undermining trust in the next election and causing division and serious financial hardships for innocent people.

The next step is clear: Twitter and Facebook need to ban Joe Biden immediately!

A Reader Writes Back...

I always enjoy reading what you have in your newsletters and I enjoy how you present it. I especially like reading your Scripture of the Day.

Concerning The "Excluded Workers Fund" article, it sounds like the Democrats are trying to buying votes or someone's pockets are going to get padded for one fictitious reason or another. I believe that this is an excellent waste of taxpayer dollars. But then, it would appear that the Democrats like to waste money.

Thanks.

    I don't know if my comment dated 4/5 about 3pm EST went, my fingers slipped.
    This is a great newsletter as usual. What is happening around our country? I think these wok people including Biden & administration are high on something. May be they're dealing with the cartels.

    RE: " The MLB knuckles under to the woke mob ". I am already not watching or supporting professional sports since the failure to stand for the flag during the National Anthem. By the way...cable tv lets companies know what you are watching for the purpose of ratings. So whatever program you are watching you are supporting. Your cable box is interactive. Which is why I do not even watch sports or liberal cable news and etc..

    Our favorite drink is Diet Coke, so it is with regret that we will NO LONGER BUY DIET COKE either for home use or at restaurants. A & W Root Beer is a good alternative.

    Major League Baseball along with Delta and COKE is going to have a very bad year due to their listening to the WOKE and Beijing Joe not reading what was passed. Look at the New York State Voting Law against the Georgia Law that are almost exactly same except in the Absentee Voting part.

    Faithful though I am to your daily newsletters, I find fault with some of your argument for showing ID to vote. It is this: the premise of those who are very, very poor are not easily able to get such ID. When you talk about plane tickets, sports events, drinking in bars or other venues, this is not valid against those who are poor in this regard.

    It is also not an equivalent argument because of the nature of choosing entertainments and travel that are out of the budget range for the very, very poor.

    That being said, I don't think there is such a significant size of the population that falls into that category. Nevertheless, they should not be excluded from casting a vote. So, perhaps the real solution is identify those who do not possess the means or have access to the assistance to get ID. Then they can be issued ID. Yep, probably a program to do it. But not a big budget proposal.

    I think something as serious as voting should require an ID.

    I would like to make a minor correction to the comment by your reader today, who ended his post with "Democrats like to waste money". democrats like to waste OUR money, not theirs.

    Regarding banning Sleazy Joe for his divisive, maliciously false and ludicrous tweets would be consistent, and the left (including big tech) are consistent in one thing - they are consistently wrong.

    Gov. Huckabee, I have a slightly different take on the MLB ridiculousness. I’m hoping the Braves make it to the World Series...where will MLB make them play their home games? Oh, maybe the Commissioner will have read Georgia’s law by then.

    MLB obviously believes "blacks" are too stupid to obtain photo ID ????? As does COKE and Delta - while Delta requires photo ID to board their airplanes !
    Doesn't the MLB have "black" players on their teams? Are those "black players" too stupid to obtain a photo ID ???????

    Rather than boycotting large stores, perhaps folks should embrace and patronize the small stores in their community that have managed to survive. Chances are they would be grateful for the business without trying to impose their political biases on their customers.
    Thank you for your reliable, common sense impartation of the 'news' stories each day.
    God Bless Christians, Americans of all faith, and bless them this Holy week, and the ongoing daily barrage of attacks against them.

    I am a long time admirer of yours and your honest views. I have lived my life as an much as possible by the commandments, trying to be honest and truthful, forgiving and law abiding. I am starting to feel like all of those things are failing me. Should I question where the VP has been the last few days and make up a story like, maybe she is recovering from a night of cocaine and alcohol, should I start a rumor that Joe Biden beats his wife, should I burn down corporate buildings that don't support my views? Of course not. But this is what the left does multiple times a day. Lies, deception, fear mongering. I am so sick of this. Maybe it's time for the right to take a page out of the lefts playbook. Not a Christian thing to do, but I am losing faith quickly in our democratic process.

    RE Georgia election law, I seem to remember stories of "olden days" when a barrel of "hard cider" was an accepted election bribe. Maybe some of these old stories should be taught to our present voters.

    Biden opens his fly house and try’s to speak 8 out 10 sentences will be a lie he has done that all his life when he totally loses his mind he will keep lying like the animal that keeps moving not knowing it’s dead. MLB are on the do not concern myself list and coke products will not be consumed or purchased let China have baseball the nba nfl and let’s start with new owners and players seems so sad to say that; the corporate sees more money in China go get it you have already priced most Americans out of a seat in the stadium anyway time to start over

    I really loved the “Sunday is Coming” article in your newsletter today (Saturday)… it is so easy to feel hopeless lately, but I appreciated the reminder that God is always with us. He is greater than all the troublemakers on Earth. I know I need to pray for those who are creating all of the problems— Biden-Harris Administration & all of their supporters, but I am having a difficult time figuring out WHAT exactly to pray. Mostly it seems to boil down to this prayer: “Dear Father in Heaven, help!”

    I love reading these newsletters. Your America the beautiful picture selections are uplifting. I have been to the Gateway Arch. It is a sight getting to ride inside and see the view. This gave me a new idea. These pictures are not only beautiful but educational. I am a retired teacher with a minor in art and history; an experience I had teaching in California made me realize the average American don't know their country's history. I was teaching religion at the time and the word Puritan caught the eye of one student; what is a puritan? It became a homework assignment. The next day I introduced them to the Puritans of Mass. Bay colony and next the Pilgrims of Plymouth Mass. Since I was born and raised in Mass, I had the opportunity growing up to visit the early sites of our country's history. I shared about the Pilgrims, took them to the Plantation in pictures, showed them the rock. The best topic was the Mayflower Compact. I related that to the ten Commandments, beatitudes and to our Constitution. It showed that the Pilgrim's knew how they wanted to be govern and treated as children of God. My sophomore's love this unit of study and so did their parents. New England became their summer vacation site and I have somewhere in a box, letters I kept in which they thanked me for the experience. To know history one has to visit the pictures you are showing us in person. I was lucky in my elementary school years, we looked forward to field trips; the Gardner Museum; Old Ironsides; the Freedom Trail; City of Boston; Our State Capital etc. In high school, we sold Christmas Cards to be able to visit sights in New York, Washington D.C. and Virginia. We had two of our teacher's as chaperons. Three of us climbed the Washington Monument and were upset over the graffiti we saw going up the stairs. I still remember my tears when I visited the Lincoln Memorial. I remember reading and writing a report in second grade about this president. My teacher made a profile cut out of him for the month of February and we took on spelling tests on that sheet of paper.
    Those teachers really taught and their hard work with us really inspired our love of country and its' history. I wish parents today would understand indoctrination is not teaching; get angry about this and demand a change. We will be loosing this generation to Marxism.

    Hey Huck,
    I remember going to the baseball games when I was a kid. It was a place you could forget about what was going on around you for a few hours and just enjoy yourself. My Dad used to take me and then, when I had kids, I took them.
    When ticket prices became too high to go to the park, I watched on TV. I even tolerated the kneeling for the National Anthem. Figuring if a few of the nit wit players were doing it, it was no sweat off my back.
    But then came the MLB cowering to the "woke mob." Well, this is the final straw. Since when did politics or a political agenda enter into a game that everyone enjoys? Didn't matter what political party or agenda you were into. Didn't matter the color of your skin, what religion you were or what social or economic status you were. Baseball was for everybody. Well, not anymore.
    Now, if your not a leftist liberal who thinks your agenda and beliefs are above everyone else or a member of the "woke mob?" Then Baseball isn't for you.
    I didn't make it this way. Major League Baseball made it this way.
    So, if MLB want's to play "hard ball" and take the All Star venue out of a state and punish the citizens for a purely political decision? Then two can play at that game.
    I canceled my Cable Subscription to all the sports channels and refuse to buy any MLB swag or MLB endorsed products.
    I won't go to a ball game if you gave me a free ticket, a food voucher and validated my parking.
    It's really sad. The "all American" game has become a game that only a certain segment of the population can enjoy, in good conscience.
