Evening Edition - December 9

December 9, 2019 |

The Salvation Army, which has a long history of helping all people in need, has been slandered as an anti-LGBTQ “hate group.” (Here’s an excellent article on how they really operate, as well as a reminder of what a hotbed of racism, sexual harassment, lies and money-grubbing is the Southern Poverty Law Center, source of so much of the “traditional Christianity = ‘hate’” nonsense: https://www.christianpost.com/voice/the-salvation-army-is-a-hate-group.html

This type of vicious falsehood is behind Chick-fil-A’s abandoning of the Salvation Army (and its own founders’ principles.)

But as liberals constantly puzzle over why Trump supporters stick by him, here’s a reminder: during the lighting ceremony for the National Christmas Tree, he made a special point of praising the Salvation Army and its Angel Tree program to provide a nice Christmas for poor children.

You see, we stand by him when he’s falsely accused because he stands by us when we’re falsely accused.  Is that really so hard to figure out?

By the way, if you’d like to make up for the lost donations due to leftist slander, you can help the Salvation Army by going here:

And while we’re on the subject of making Christmas merry for children who might otherwise go without, here are a couple of other organizations that deserve your support.  Christmas is just 16 days away, and the Marines' annual Toys For Tots drive is in the home stretch and needs all the donations it can get.  You can find their collection boxes at various stores listed at their website, or donate directly online at https://www.toysfortots.org/

And there’s Samaritan’s Purse and its Christmas Child program, which delivers shoeboxes full of gifts, both toys and necessities, to poor children all over the world.  Here's a recent interview from “Huckabee” on TBN where the Rev. Franklin Graham explains the program and tells a truly miraculous story of how God directed the perfect gift to a shivering young boy in Kosovo.

You can help those children at http://www.SamaritansPurse.org  

I hope you’ll support all three of these worthy organizations.  Amid all the Christmas shopping frenzy, some people forget that it’s more blessed to give than to receive, but this is the time of year when it’s especially important to remember that.

The Daily Beast is the furthest thing from a conservative website.  So when they run an article protesting the Democrats’ looming all-white Presidential debate, and incidentally throw in an accusation that leftist billionaire Tom Steyer bought his way onto the stage by running “what amounts to a scam,” selling swag below cost with free shipping then counting the buyers as “donors”…well, you can’t exactly claim that’s a biased right-wing attack.

A vegan “social media influencer” who went for years eating nothing but plant-based foods had so many health problems that, in desperation, she tried the “Carnivore Diet.” For 30 days, she ate nothing but meat and animal products such as eggs and dairy.

The result?  “I woke up the next morning feeling more mentally clear, focused, wholesome, and healthy than I had felt in years.”

https://www.foxnews.com/lifestyle/vegan-influencer-carnivore-healthier

If she really wants to feel better than she’s ever felt, I’d be happy to introduce her to barbecue.  Naturally, her vegan followers were not happy about her honesty or biology. But I wouldn’t worry about it.  I doubt that they’ll come after her.  I’m surprised they even had the strength to tap their keyboards.

Monday Fake News Round-Up:

No, CNN and MSNBC, President Trump didn’t say that Article II of the Constitution gives him the power to do “whatever I want.” It's pretty well known that that video had been deceptively edited. Even worse, they were taking about it because the Democrats showed it during their “impeachment” hearing.  So I guess this is a two-fer: fake news and fake evidence.

https://thebl.com/politics/msnbc-and-cnn-use-a-well-known-deceptively-edited-video-to-discredit-trump.html

No, Media Matters and all the other liberal news outlets, pundits and politicians who swallowed and repeated their misleading story: Nikki Haley did not defend the Confederate flag.

https://pjmedia.com/trending/fake-news-nikki-haley-did-not-defend-the-confederate-flag/

No, producers of Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” the late Phyllis Schlafly was not a bigot and anti-Semite who condemned what she thought was a conspiracy of powerful Jews. The “Eastern establishment kingmakers” of the Republican Party that she criticized were all WASPs.  

https://pjmedia.com/lifestyle/marvelous-mrs-maisel-repeats-debunked-anti-semitism-smear-against-phyllis-schlafly/

Finally, no, Marianne Williamson followers (and Marianne Williamson): President Trump did not posthumously pardon Charles Manson.  That was from a satirical “news” site.  It’s called “The Moron Majority,” and man, do they know their target audience.

“War On Christmas” Claims Friendly Fire Victim:  The head teacher at a primary school in the UK took it upon himself to ban the longtime tradition of students exchanging Christmas cards, because printing holiday messages on paper somehow contributes to climate change and is DESTROYING THE EARTH!!!  He informed the parents of this by…(drumroll)…mailing a printed letter to the homes of all 275 students.  

https://www.westernjournal.com/school-bans-kids-sending-christmas-cards-protect-environment-notifies-parents-letters/

I’ll let you go to the link and read the reactions of the parents to his attempt to be green by acting like the Grinch, only with a dumber plan to steal Christmas. He’s lucky they didn’t hang him by the chimney with care.

Our Huck’s Hero story of the day is also our feel-good story of the day.  Happy birthday to retired Army Air Force Col. Charles McGee, a member of the famed Tuskegee Airmen, the first African American unit to fly combat missions in World War II.  Col. McGee flew 409 fighter combat missions in three wars, but he not only survived, on Saturday, he celebrated his 100th birthday. 

And here’s how he celebrated it: by flying a private jet from Maryland to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, where a party was held in his honor.  Check out these photos. 

https://www.airforcetimes.com/news/your-air-force/2019/12/08/tuskegee-airman-celebrates-100th-birthday-with-flight/

I hope I look that good when I’m 70, and I know I darn sure won’t be piloting any planes to my birthday party.

    As a fire fighter for 40 years it was always the Salvation Army that showed up to feed and rehab us. I have never forgotten their efforts they made. For that reason I will not pass a Red Kettle without dropping in a dollar. And this year instead of sending Christmas cards to friends and family we donated what we would spend to help them serve those who need a little help. Challenged all my firefighter friends to do the same and many are coming through as you would expect.

    Mr. Huchabee,
    I am a retired citizen of the United States of America. I have been a citizen for around for over six decades, and I thought I would pass an observation on my part to you.

    This beautiful country of ours has been in existence for almost two and a half centuries. During which time, there have been three Presidents impeached, and now a fourth is undergoing an extremely partisan process with congress attempting to impeach him. Three of those four impeachment processes have occurred in my lifetime, as well as the lifetime of a large percentage of the citizen alive in this nation today. Is that not a telling fact about the state of politics in our country today. Would I be in error to assume from this that the chasm between the two parties has not increased drastically over the past few decades? Especially because three of the four impeachment processes have taken place during the past forty-six years.

    What other event has taken place during that time which may have contributed to such an increase in rancor among our populace? Was it the advent of television? Or population growth in the country? Or maybe the fact that an ever-larger portion of the population has attended institutes of higher learning during that time. And these individuals have been exposed to something during their attendance at those institutions, which exacerbated this division in our populace. I am very interested in hearing your opinion on the subject as you seem to have a knack for cutting through the minutia to find the cause of the problem.

    Signed: A worried citizen

    Actually I had helped for months a a Salvation Army food bank that gave hot meals to the homeless (and a few that weren't) everyday. The woman that ran this particular outfit stated that the Lieutenants with the Salvation all drive Esclades (I had witnessed these vheicles), live in larger homes in great areas and along with the afore mentioned being paid for by our donations, so is their utilities and private schools for their children. The man who is head of the Salvation Army take a wage less than 20k a year, but EVERYTHING is paid for him! So, not a big fan.

    Mike - why do people not realize Pelosi’s REAL goal: “to be the first woman president of the United States!” She is two steps away from
    It: 1) impeach Trump; then 2) impeach Pence ( a piece of cake compared to Trump) and 3) SHE is president by default!!! This is horrifying to me to see how intense she Is in reaching this goal! I cannot believe how weak-kneed the
    GOP is, with the exception of our President! God has SUPER-BLESSED us with this man! My daily prayer for this administration is that “...truth will rise!” It Is the only thing that will destroy the evil in our land! God bless you, Mike! Love you much!! Big hugs, and Merry Christmas!!!

    There was a recent post on fb where someone decided to tell people to not give to the Shoebox program by Rev. Graham. Seems this person seems to think--what a waste to give these children TOYS--my goodness, they have NO idea what to do with them!!! I give the kids credit for more brains than this person, because I'm betting the kids can figure out what to do with them. And, for goodness sake, how horrible to include CLOTHING--because, you know, that eats into the sales of the struggling clothing industry of those poor countries. Except, I don't think this person stopped to think that I doubt that the parents of these kids are able to afford to buy clothing.

    I have been a moderate republican for many years. More so on local elections I would vote for either party. After the impeachment proceedings of of President Trump. Wich is a palimpsest of impenetrable jargon of lies, deceit, deception, fabrication, hearsay and closed hearings where I a sovereign citizen of The United States of America was unable to view the secret proceedings that are reminiscent Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler or Saddam Hussein.
    I will vote flat line Republican or Conservative parties. I thought I was the only one here in upstate NY to feel this way, but the local election for Town Board where Democrats have been 100% for years. This past November election went Straight line Republican wins, the only Democrat to get re-elected was the town Supervisor who made it by a very slim margin ( the last election for town supervisor was a landslide Democratic win ).
    I hope this is a good sign of change coming to bring this country back to the Constitution that our Founding Fathers envisioned.
    P.S.

    There is no "war on Christmas ". This is nothing but a conservative urban legend . Liberals in general, including myself, have absolutely no objection to Christians celebrating Christmas, and we are not offended in the least bit when people say "Merry Christmas" to us on December 25th . We also say "Merry Christmas " to them .
    In fact, many liberals ARE Christians .

    Is it odd that no MSM has been to Ukraine to investigate Biden Gate and his son? Why does Senator Graham plan to shut down the impeachment in the Senate? This would be a perfect opportunity to call witnesses from the Ukraine, DNC, GOP, Congress , Senate , Obama administration and current State Department employees. Are they all hiding something while they have been stabbing President Trump in the back. How come representatives from the democrat and republican parties come to Washington D.C. broke and in a short time they are wealthy? Follow the money and we will drain the swamp in twenty four hours. Republicans talk tough but when it comes time to draw and fire they are all cowards, they fear losing all of their money coming under the table to both dems and crooked republicans. That is why Lindsey Graham will not hold public trail and call witnesses. All of them need to be fired and prosecuted new citizens that care about our Country take their place.
