BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 

(Someone suggested we lead with our Bible Verse of the Day.  After asking readers to respond yesterday, we received over 1,000 messages saying please keep it first, and so here it is for the foreseeable future.).

 

"Climate Day"

By Mike Huckabee

Wednesday was “Climate Day” at the White House (isn’t it “climate day” everywhere every day?), and President Biden once again attempted to reanimate the dead policies of the Obama years. He claimed Americans shouldn’t worry about all the jobs his anti-energy policies will kill because they’ll all get good new “green jobs,” doing things like building solar panels (ahem – “Solyndra”) and charging stations for all those electric government vehicles that will be powered by…well, he’ll get back to us later on that.

I expect clueless blather and job-killing policies from Biden. But if we’re going to address climate change, we have to talk about the big ball of hot gas that’s above us all. I refer, of course, to John Kerry.

Kerry has become legendary for his arrogance, pomposity, condescension and unwarranted sense of moral superiority, and all those repellent traits were on full display in his recent comments about the furious union workers who were abruptly left unemployed by Biden’s groundless halt to the Keystone Pipeline project.

Kerry, clueless as ever about how most Americans actually make a living, lectured those poor deluded peasants, “What President Biden wants to do is make sure that those folks have better choices, that they have alternatives, that they can be the people who go to work to make the solar panels” (because who wouldn’t be grateful to trade their current pipe-fitting job for a politician’s promise of a job making solar panels sometime in the vague future?)

Kerry, as always, went on: “That is going to be a particular focus of the ‘Build Back Better’ agenda, and I think that, unfortunately, workers have been fed a false narrative, no surprise, for the past few years. They’ve been fed the notion somehow that dealing with climate is going to be at their expense. No, it’s not.”

News flash, John: They just lost the jobs that they depended on to feed their families, so yes, it’s already at their expense. Of course, their small minds can’t possibly comprehend the vast, planet-controlling vision of their betters, so he has to explain to them that they haven’t really been harmed, just because they’ve been unexpectedly thrown out of work for no good reason.

Maybe he could give them some advice on making better career choices, like “Marry an heiress,” then “Divorce her and marry a richer one.”

Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton summed up the predictable outrage over Kerry’s oblivious arrogance well: “John Kerry—who flies in private jets, owned a 76-foot yacht and several mansions—has the carbon footprint of a small nation. Yet he tells energy workers to ‘make solar panels’ when the Biden administration kills their jobs.” I’m surprised Kerry didn’t suggest that they simply eat cake until those solar panel jobs become available.

The War On Free Speech Ramps Up

By Mike Huckabee

The war on free speech rights just got ramped up another notch Wednesday with news that social media influencer/Twitter troll Douglass Mackey, aka Ricky Vaughn, has been arrested on federal charges for sharing memes on Twitter in 2016. I’ll wait while you go back and read that again to make sure your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you.

Mackey is charged under a seldom-used law called “conspiracy to violate rights” because he allegedly used his popular social media site to share memes that told people to vote for Hillary Clinton by sending a text to a particular number. FYI: you can’t vote by text. You might assume that anyone would know this, since the memes were widely regarded as a joke and shared by thousands of other social media users. But Mackey is facing up to 10 years in prison for sharing them. Who knows how many others might face the same selective prosecution?

I wonder if everyone who ever told the old joke about advising supporters of legalized pot to be sure and turn out to vote on the first Wednesday in November is now going to be hit with federal charges for depriving them of their rights? Or if anyone who ever shared a hilarious satirical story from the Babylon Bee will be imprisoned for spreading “disinformation”?

Two details of this story that are worth noting: you can’t blame leftists entirely, since the case was put together under the Trump Administration by acting US Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Seth DeCharme, a Bill Barr appointee. Also, an MIT ranking of the most important social media influencers of the 2016 election ranked Mackey (whom I’ve never heard of before) at #107, higher than NBC News, Stephen Colbert or Newt Gingrich. In my opinion, whether Americans are actually getting their information about elections from Twitter trolls who tell them to vote by text or from Stephen Colbert, either should only lead to an indictment of our schools’ civics education.

Tucker Carlson of Fox News asked what this means for the First Amendment, and he said it means it’s been suspended if “you can be arrested for saying the ‘wrong’ things.”

As the article at the link notes, we all know that Google, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube blatantly conspired to influence the last election, to boost the Biden vote and suppress the Trump vote. I demand that the DOJ immediately arrest their CEOs on federal charges that can bring up to 10 years in prison.

And here’s another frontal assault on the First Amendment: Former Trump White House Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro reports that he’s been banned from Twitter simply because of who he is, what he believes and what he might say. It can’t be because of anything he’s actually said lately, since he hasn’t even tweeted anything since January 14th.

The "Fix"

By Mike Huckabee

So now we know how President Biden plans to “fix” President Trump’s coronavirus response: by doing the exact same thing, only adding more costly bureaucrats and divisive racial politics. In other words, same prescription today’s Democrats have for every problem.

Buyers' Remorse Sets In

By Mike Huckabee

If you read this newsletter, you’ll know I haven’t exactly been supportive of President Biden’s first days in office, and his flurry of divisive, job-killing, security-destroying, freedom-crushing, government-bloating, economy-wrecking executive orders (to put it mildly.) But you know I’m a conservative, so of course, I would be opposed (and appalled) at what I’m seeing. That’s to be expected. But what about Americans with no particular political stance, or even those who supported Biden? How are they feeling about their new Prez?

Turns out they’re starting to feel pretty appalled, too. The buyers’ remorse is setting in fast, as they realize what they elected just to end Trump’s “mean tweets.” There’s now evidence that Biden’s executive orders are going over like an incontinent frog in the punchbowl.

Here’s a story about four Congressional Democrats who backed Biden who are reeling over his order to end oil and gas leases on federal land, an order that will reduce US GDP by $700 billion and devastate their states’ economies. They’ve sent him a letter urging him to rescind it. Good luck! Should've thought harder before you filled out your ballots. Or read this newsletter.

If even Congressional Democrats are already starting to feel queasy about Biden in the White House, imagine how average Americans feel. Well, you don’t have to, because the polls are already coming in.

Since taking office, Biden’s approval rating has been consistently dropping in the Rasmussen daily tracking poll, from -2 to -4 to -5 points. This is unusual since Presidents normally start out with a honeymoon period. And while Biden has enjoyed fawning press and a refusal to fact-check even his most stunning claims, Trump came into office with viciously hostile press yet saw his approval rating rise early on from +2 to +13 points. Maybe it’s because Americans saw that his executive orders were actually meant to help America. Or maybe they just finally saw him and realized he didn’t have horns and cloven hooves, the way the press claimed.

So far, the White House response to criticism has been “shut up or else,” but I don’t see that as a winning strategy for the 2022 elections. I would urge Republicans to keep up the criticism, the refusal to be “canceled” and silenced, and the pressure on state and local officials to clean up and retighten election integrity laws. I have a feeling that with polls tanking this fast, if Congressional Democrats realize they’ll be facing fair and honest reelection campaigns in 2022, they might become almost as big an obstacle to Biden’s destructive agenda as the Republicans are.

Fact-Checkers For The "Fact-Checkers"

By Mike Huckabee

The “fact-checkers” who challenged every word out of President Trump’s mouth are feeling almost as unemployed as pipeline workers now that Joe Biden is in office. Some, like the Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler, have as much as admitted they won’t even be monitoring Biden because if anyone has a reputation for always telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but, it’s Joe “Plagiarist” Biden.

They’re so desperate for something to nitpick that Kessler tried nit-picking a fight with Sen. Ted Cruz, challenging his claim that Biden’s killing of the Keystone Pipeline will kill 11,000 union jobs. Kessler gave him “Two Pinocchios,” and tut-tutted that AC-shully, those jobs were only temporary jobs. Cruz fired back, “ALL construction jobs are temporary. Presidents still shouldn’t destroy them.’’

I guess at WaPo, they believe that some construction workers finish building a project, then just keep on building it for all eternity.

But as Brad Slager at Townhall.com points out at this link, Kessler contradicted himself, since in a previous “fact-check” years ago, he claimed the number of jobs Keystone would create was being overstated, and it would only create about 16,000 jobs. Now, he seems to be claiming that the jobs he said would be created aren’t real jobs at all.

How many times do I have to keep saying this? We need fact-checkers for our “fact-checkers.”

    Thank you for your cleverly written newsletter! I sent the following to my two Ar Senators and congressman. I am a voter and will be silent no longer.
    First, I am a conservative constitutionalist Christian who values Biblical truth, democracy, freedom of speech, moral values, religious liberty, sound education, voting integrity, a fair and balanced media, etc. You get the picture of what I stand for. With each passing day since Biden/Harris took office I’m extremely disturbed with the decisions made and executive orders being signed that are bringing America in a fast downward spiral. With each and every value I listed, Biden and his administration are quickly tearing down and destroying the very fabric of American freedoms. I must also interject that I am totally against the impeachment of President Trump who is now a private citizen. Although I am not condoning President Trump’s rhetoric, which at many times I found abhorrent, he put America first making profound progress in making America great! From a political point of view, the Democratic Party as a whole is full of spite and hate, aggressively attacking and undoing all Trump has put in place. The division being created now is massive. We have a President in office now who appears to be one who chooses his heads of departments not by merit of their stellar expertise but by appeasement of their being a diverse group of characters who make me shudder in dismay! My heart is heavy as an American citizen who has found her voice and wants to make it known. I’m deeply concerned restoring America as a great nation is going to be more and more difficult as corruption is ignored ie, Hunter Biden/ Joe Biden’s China criminal behavior..… and many other shady dealings within government. The mainstream media is corrupt in its reporting. The government canceling the keystone pipeline is killing American jobs. During the COVID-19 pandemic, small businesses will be forced to close because they cannot afford the Biden minimum wage. The reversal of the military transgender ban is absolutely disgusting and harmful! Biden opening the door to men identifying as women by allowing them into women’s bathrooms, locker rooms and sports is totally obscene! Our children are being indoctrinated in public schools to an acceptance of an immoral and dysfunctional lifestyle. My heart hurts for America. I pray for our people…one and all. It’s hard to fathom that so much divisiveness is upon us. Please help restore American values and principles.

    Apparently the most dangerous virus has spread from the House of Representatives to the Senate and the Whitehouse. America, the patient , is already showing symptoms like the loss of jobs and freedom of speech. Lets hope the patient can survive until the "vaccine" arrives in 2022.

    Hopefully you read my letter to the cowardly NV Senator. Also you may have better sources to repeat the question.
    The Obama Administration spent somewhere in the neighborhood of $150B on projects like Solyndra, Ivanpah, and Crescent Dunes. What did the American people derive in return? Were there any successes or were they all like the three cited? The American people deserve some answers.
    This climate change nonsense is out of hand!

    NV Energy just bragged that they are turning up 3 more solar based projects as the NV PUC stupidly approved them.

    I am a committee person for the Adams County Republican Committee. We need help. We have had our Facebook page deleted permanently, not for inciting violence, but probably because our county made more phone calls for Trump than any other in PA. Personal pages of those who were administrators of the FB page were also deleted permanently, many of those with family pictures that are irreplaceable. We are looking to try to find other groups or committees that have possibly been cancelled also. We would like to form a class action suit and fight back against the censorship we see. We need help finding those groups. If we've all be cancelled by FB, it is difficult to find them. You can reach me at my email and I can provide a number for you to call then, too. Thanks.

    I have a hard with all the destruction Biden is doing to the country I love. He has destroyed jobs. How does he plan to take care of the jobless citizens and the Illegals he wants to bring in. Will they all be tested for COVID19 and given vaccinations? Does he think money grows on trees? I have always been a very conserved woman.

    The failed Obama policies are back with a more hateful outlook for America the America First movement hurt Obama and Biden the large corporations and the deep state that includes most of Congress the old and the new members are in the protection business of the large money-holders and its huge assets without them they become just an another government employee. The power to self enrich themselves is the prominent reason to be a member of Congress the fee to become members is millions of dollars for a job that pays 174000 a year most people would think doesn’t look like a deal however the club has doors and military to to protect them to secretly conduct its business

    I'm no legal scholar, just a retired physician, but since our governments(Federal, State, Local) can't take our property without due process, would any of Biden's exec orders fall into this category. Just how broad is the term property (my paycheck, my business)?

    This issue hit many of my concerns. 1. Climate Change is a political movement that has used the environment as the sales hook to grab money from the west to redistribute to 3rd world countries and now by the Biden Administration to lift our wallets. 2. Our civil liberties are under assault with the attack on free speech. "Wrong speech" is now criminal unless your name is Pelosi. Peter Navarro was one of the shining stars of the Trump Administration. 3. The WaPo should establish a "Biden Whopper" count as they are coming at us fast and furious. 4. I am in CA and a vaccine for me is nowhere on the horizon due to the fumbles by the state government. 5. Could we have Sarah in CA as our Governor?

    Well, since biden wants to destroy all borders of the USA, why can't the Keystone Pipeline be completed by Canada employing the pipe-workers? Wouldn't that fit into biden's plan to have other countries take over American workers to be their employees? Like biden is for China? This way biden can say that no American workers are working for America? Just a thought to take biden's et al minions' own words and use it against their own agenda? Democrats think they are the smartest, but Republican Conservatives are much wiser and more innovative at giving them their own rope to hang themselves with, letting the opposition think they are winning but reality shows they are not and will not ever take over American spirit and bravery. England was a much bigger force in 1776, and America still got our Independence from it. So the current admin. is nothing compared to what 1776 was, We will survive and become stronger through this dark time now.

    Hi:
    I'm sorry this will be long, but I wanted you to know what the Dems are telling their constituents. I had written Mr. Brown before Jan. 6th to ask him what he would do about all the claims of voter fraud. I got no answer until today which was:
    From: Sherrod Brown
    Sent: Thursday, January 28, 2021 11:54 AM
    To: [email protected]
    Subject: Reply from Senator Sherrod Brown

    Dear Mr. Truesdell:

    Thank you for contacting me regarding the 2020 presidential campaign and election. On November 7, 2020, President Biden was elected as the 46th President of the United States, and he and Vice President Kamala Harris were officially sworn into office on January 20, 2021 in Washington, D.C. President Biden won a commanding victory, winning by a decisive margin of nearly seven million votes for a total of 306 electoral votes. He received more votes than any presidential candidate in American history.

    Elections are the bedrock of our democratic government, and I am committed to upholding the integrity of our democratic institutions by ensuring America's elections remain free, fair, and on time, and that all eligible Americans are able to cast their vote safely, without unnecessary burdens. The election on November 3, 2020 was the most secure in American history and the Electoral College confirmed the results of the election on December 14, 2020.

    After the election, President Trump and his allies spread misinformation and made false claims of election fraud in a failed attempt to overturn the will of the American people. This election ran smoothly, despite the unprecedented challenge of a global pandemic, and there is zero evidence of any voter fraud, irregularities, or interference. President Trump's refusal to accept the decision of the American people was a direct attack on our democracy, and we saw on January 6 just how dangerous that was, when domestic terrorists attacked our Capitol to try to stop the completion of our democratic process.

    Poll workers and election officials worked hard - in many places around the clock - to safely count and verify each vote cast during the biggest public health crisis our nation has faced in over a century. We must do more to support these workers, and to make voting easier and more accessible for everyone, especially in times of national emergencies and public health crises.

    The American people sent a clear message with this election - they want a president who's on their side again. We know we have great challenges - we're in a public health crisis, an economic crisis, and a climate crisis, and extraordinary times call for us to rise to meet this moment and restore people's faith in their government. I'm confident that President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will provide the strong and honest leadership our country needs.

    I look forward to working with the Biden Administration to fight for Ohioans and all Americans. Thank you again for getting in touch with me.

    Sincerely,

    Sherrod Brown
    United States Senator

    6 - number of man.
    Says a lot about his tenure!

    Biden's slogan was "Build Back Better". Well, so far all he has done is demolition via implosion. He definitely had destruction first on his agenda.

    When will Joe start building? How much more will he destroy before the "building" begins?

    Worst start for a president in my lifetime! :-((

    Gov. Huckabee,

    Yes, I like the scripture at the beginning. It is a good reminder that we need to keep a vertical focus on God even during these terribly troubling times.

    Perhaps a prayer of entreaty could be added at the end.

    Regards
