BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 

Parler: FBI ignored us

By Mike Huckabee

It was bad enough when the free speech social media platform Parler was vilified and deplatformed over the Capitol riot despite no evidence that the violence was planned by people using Parler. It got worse after an investigation found that most of the actual planning was done on Facebook and Instagram. Now, prepare for a new level of injustice.

In a letter to a Congressional Committee investigating the riot, Parler revealed that it had reached out to the FBI long before the attack to facilitate cooperation and refer any violent threats or incitement to law enforcement. Parler did this over 50 times and even warned the FBI about specific threats of violence being planned for the Capitol.

And yet Parler was given the cyber equivalent of a death penalty by the other tech giants, even though it not only didn't help facilitate the riot, it was actively helping the FBI to prevent it. The FBI even thanked Parler for its efforts.

The more we learn about this, the more it seems obvious that when Big Tech crushed Parler, it wasn’t because it represented a threat to the Capitol but to Big Tech’s monopolies and censorship of free speech.

9th Circuit Rules on 2nd Amendment

By Mike Huckabee

The notorious 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco just ruled that the Second Amendment only applies inside your house. In an opinion written by George W. Bush appointee Judge Jay Bybee, the court ruled, contrary to just about every previous court ruling, that “There is no right to carry arms openly in public; nor is any such right within the scope of the Second Amendment.”

He went on: “It remains as true today as it was centuries ago, that the mere presence of such weapons presents a terror to the public and that widespread carrying of handguns would strongly suggest that state and local governments have lost control of our public areas…Our review of more than 700 years of English and American legal history reveals a strong theme: government has the power to regulate arms in the public square.”

Wow, where to begin? Why is a US court looking at English laws as far back as the 1300s? Maybe this escaped their notice, but the reason we have Second Amendment rights is that we fought a revolution in the 1700s to break free of onerous English laws and establish a nation in which the rights of the people were paramount. We no longer have to care what the British royals think or do (take note, Oprah.) They might as well be telling us that we don’t have that Constitutional right because they didn’t have it in ancient Egypt.

Secondly, if Americans feel the need to carry weapons in public, that alone strongly suggests that state and local governments have lost control of our public areas. Judging by the news lately, I’d say the feeling is correct.

Finally, if the Founders had intended the right to weapons of self-defense to apply only inside of your home, why do we have the “right to keep and bear arms” and not just the right to keep them? Did they mean we can only bear them as we walk from the kitchen to the bathroom?

The 9th Circuit is known for being the federal court most overturned by the Supreme Court. Let’s hope this nonsense will quickly become the latest example.

Prime Example of Ridiculous Spending

By Mike Huckabee

Those of you who have been stuck at home and unable to stay in a hotel for a year now can at least live vicariously knowing that thanks to President Biden allocating $86.9 million for 1,239 hotel rooms to house illegal border crossers, you’ll be paying $71,666.67 of your tax dollars per migrant for hotel rooms. As Andrew Arthur of the Center for Immigration Studies put it, “You are now a co-conspirator to one of the largest smuggling schemes in history.”

On the bright side, you not only get the vicarious thrill of paying for a long, expensive hotel stay but also being part of an exciting smuggling scheme that’s apparently now 100% legal so nobody has to worry about being arrested for it.

The Daily Wire Sets a Great Example

By Mike Huckabee

The Daily Wire is setting a great example for conservatives who are fed up with giving their money to companies that capitulate to tiny but loud leftist rage mobs. They’re launching businesses to serve all those conservatives that these “woke” corporations don’t seem to want as customers. First, they branched out into movie production and signed a deal with Gina Carano, who was fired by Disney over her non-PC social media posts. Now, after Harry’s, a men’s grooming company, pulled its ads in response to complaints from LGBTQ+ activists, the Daily Wire announced that it’s exploring launching its own direct-to-consumer grooming products business.

A spokesman said, “It’s time to challenge the cultural hegemony of the 23-year-old woke staffers who apparently drive strategy for so many of these businesses. It’s time for conservatives to stop funding companies who hate us, and to get busy creating alternatives.”

For a long time, I opposed boycotts of companies based on the politics of their executives. I thought they usually just harmed the employees and deprived me of products I liked while having little effect. Besides, I thought it was un-American to refuse to do business with someone just because they held different political opinions.

But that was before the left was taken over by the ultra-left and started politicizing everything. It was no longer enough for CEOs to be liberal, they had to silence or fire employees who dared to hold conservative views, or even liberal views that weren’t radical enough. If people are going to declare war on you, it’s stupid to give them money to buy more ammunition to fire at you.

If there’s a conservative, or even a nonpartisan, alternative, then why not give them your business? That’s not a boycott, it’s just a smart consumer decision. And if the aggressively leftist companies end up going out of business because of it, well…that wasn’t my fault. They decided to alienate half their potential customer base and try to survive on the income from people who live in their moms’ basements.

A Few Additional Clips

By Mike Huckabee

Congratulations to the Oral Roberts University basketball team for its success so far in the NCAA finals. And leave it to the liberal media to turn a Christian university team winning some basketball games into a whole new concept of “March Madness.”

A survey by Gallup found that among residents of 33 nations in Latin America and the Caribbean, 42 million people want to move to the US permanently.

The big question now is, will they all be here by next weekend?

A Reader Writes Back...

I hope and pray President Trump starts his own social media! I will drop FB and join it even if I have to pay for the privilege! He has been SO unfairly treated by the Media and social networks, and now we Conservatives will have a Voice! I pray that God will bless President Trump and help him to prosper in every way. Thank you for always supporting him, Governor Huckabee!

    Where does the DeWitt broad get off saying Trump is not a Christian ( that is sanctimonious and judgemental and something his actions disapprove) and Mike Pence was a self serving traitor.
    Yes madame defarge DeWitt you ARE a Trump hater.

    A Reader Writes Back...
    I hope and pray President Trump starts caring more about hearing our Lord say to him, "well done My good and faithful servant", than he does about winning the applause of man! Trump has NOT been SO unfairly treated by the Media and social networks because they focus on his own behavior and now I pray that Christians...who can SEE that Trump is NOT a BORN AGAIN Christian..will have a Voice!

    I pray that God will bless President Trump and help him to SEE that, because he is NOT a BORN AGAIN Christian, according to Jesus Christ, he is heading for a Christless eternity!

    I pray that God will send Trump a Christian who will love him enough to TELL him that he is heading for a Christless eternity even AT the risk of evoking Trump's wrath.... in view of the fact that all of Mike Pence's support meant nothing to Trump.... since all it took was for Mike to disagree with him one time to evoke Trump's wrath.... a Christian loving Trump enough TO tell him he is NOT a BORN AGAIN Christian has nothing to lose because Trump's brand of "love" is about "agreeing with" whereas CHRIST'S brand of love is about loving one 's enemies
    .....which is the FRUIT Jesus said would identify one as BEING born again...and since Trump STATED he could NOT love his enemies, I dare anyone who claims to BE a Christian to say I am writing this because...like the social media....I am a "Trump hater!"

    Dear Governor Huckabee,
    It is once again Saturday and it is time to watch your show on TBN. We found it by accident several months ago. We want to tell all those who read your Evening Edition that the hour you are on is one of the best, or maybe the best hour of TV every week. Thank you and the Lord Bless you
    over and over again.

    I believe that if a judge rules against what the Constitution has written in it then I don't have to obey the ruling. the same goes for all the EOs and bills these communists are trying to put on the people. A civil war will erupt to take back our country.

    Just read on "Conservation News" about 27 Orthodox Jews being kicked off Frontier Airlines because they had a 15 month old baby nor wearing a mask. The law does not require a child under the age of two years to wear a mask. In fact, a child under two wearing a mask can cause a baby to suffocate. A spokesperson for the airlines tried to say most in the family were nor wearing a mask. However, a video by WABC released by the orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council plainly showed all passengers except the baby were wearing masks. If this is not a case of racism I don't know what is. Wonder why we never hear these incidents on CNN OR MSNBC etc.? Crew members were heard to say "a job well done to those Jews." Jews in this country have been persecuted for decades. This is a prime example. On another note, as has been pointed out, troops in DC are having to sleep on the ground while Biden and the rest of the Dems spend out tax dollars on hotel rooms for illegal immigrants. How long must we put up with their treatment of honest law abiding citizens.

    This one of the major reason the Deep State and Biden feared Donald Trump was Trump was giving people of color hope with places to work to get away from the Governments control over their lives. People were gaining self esteem by earning their way when that happens they are going to protect their assets they earn and respect other peoples assets with the chance of crime reduction this caused a huge problem for the Bidens of the country losing control over a large group of citizens. With poverty and drug use and being idle a big tool offering food stamps, housing, and welfare kept this large group as a Democrat source and of course telling the group it real problem is White people holding them back, this is what nice guys do to help people with needs. Also shutting down business takes away the chance for gainful employment and bringing in workers from other countries that will work for less wages and benifits really helps in their quest to get off government assistance and the chance at a better quality of life this what nice guys do.

    Regarding the Oral Roberts University story, here's an idea:

    If you're part of the LGBTQ community, and you already know that ORU is a Christian institution, how about you DON'T APPLY TO GO THERE!

    What China got (somewhat) correct is that the USA, with the tacit approval of both major (somewhat) politcal parties, has its own Chinese Uighurs. The Central American's, and those that preceeded them, in coming to America illegally, are now American Uighurs, politcal pawns subjected to abuse both to get here and to stay. They’re now slaves. To repubs they’re slaves to cheap labor. To dems they’ve slaves to social entitlement programs. Why do they come? The abuses are less disfavorable than at their home. Meanwhile, Congress is not dithering over the issue. They are doing nothing. Willfully but loudly. The executive branch, meanwhile, has uped the economic fortune in foreign aid to Central America from $540mm, give or take, to $4b. That's Chinese money that America borrows because it doesn't have any money of its own. That hypocrisy has not been lost on the Chinese. Or the American people. When will we vote "them" out?

    Biden is spending money like the world will end in 11 years, at the way he is going I doubt if we have that much time. The movie the Mule with Clint Eastwood driving drugs from one place to another got caught and spent his time in prison, Biden is tempting older people to help in getting drugs thru out the country he wants people to get in on the Mexican Cartel money just like biden himself may what are the other reasons for open borders? Now thats a nice man getting deadly drugs to addicted drug users and getting new users everyday. Biden is not only a nice man he is great for the Cartels in the narcotics world he hopes to get the OPEC nations a boost by buying its oil, so much for the new green deal, Biden what else can you do for America maybe disarm the citizens to encourage home invasions. I no longer know what a nice man is.

    There needs to be serious discussion as to why the FBI, being warned with at least 50 viable threats to the Capitol, did absolutely nothing and let the rioters through and the mayhem happen. Unbelievable!

    If the economy hits the bottom, which it will with the hyperinflation on the horizon (trust me - it's going that direction), then we will NEED to be able to carry because we'll have to get our own food. In Alaska, many people still live off the land and must hunt for food. If food prices skyrocket, what are we supposed to do? I'm already turning my garden into vegetables and herbs - now I have to hunt rabbit and other game, right? And with What if you take away my rifle?? Crossbow? Wrist rocket? Hey, I will do what I can to keep protein on my table!

    You have brought in some good info to help the many who do little research.
    Of concern to me is Biden's slip if the tongue. Saying now he will run again in 2024 and Harris on the ticket again. Also it is now the Biden-Harris administration. Also saying there likely won't be a Republican Party in 2024. I early saw this as a main reason for the left slipping many illegal bills in with RINOs support. And now conservative economists predicting a greater depression before the year's end. Many believers I know will not look at what us happening. Like German Christians did to allow Hitler to take over.
    Could you have guests who can speak to these issues.
    I know many seem to worship the you walk on. So use your bully pulpit.
    Thank You

    Hi Mike,

    I shot this off to Harry's this evening:

    Just so you know, I like your products, but I don’t like your phony righteous indignation.

    Identity politics have got to stop. While I don’t expect to make it stop on my own, I certainly don’t have to participate in it or otherwise support it when I see it happening.

    You pulled your ads from The Daily Wire over something they published that rubbed a very small percentage of the populace the wrong way and some of (an even smaller percentage) them bitched - Whaaaaa! So you pulled your advertising. The Daily Wire reaches a lot of ACTUAL men who buy shaving products, but I’m going to guess they won’t be buying yours after this.

    Like I said, I like your products, but you’re not the only game in town.

    Why don't the 99% of us who aren't offended by everything quit catering to the 1% who are?

    Greg

    Why does anyone think the FBI is going to do anything to anyone, they haven't in the past nothing happened to Clinton , Obama, Biden and family, the Durham report isn't going to do anything, (if we ever even see it, it has gone on so long now everyone has forgotten he was suppose to do something) why would Parler think they would listen to anything they would give them a heads up on. The American people are fed up but yet there is nothing we can do to change things, (and if you believe we the little guy can, then start putting out some solid directions and steps to follow (and don't say call your senators or representatives they don't listen or care, (they don't talk to you they have "staff" you might get in touch with, it they get your message it will be totally different then what you actually said. Another thing everyone is constantly wanting money for every election, RNC, every survey it always money money money, to much money is spend on elections, etc. and we are always in election mode, we never get out of this mode anymore, no wonder the congress doesn't get anything done, you should only be able to campaign for 6 months before each election and be able to spend a minimum amount of money, people should be elected on merit (not that I think that most people running this day and age know what "merit" means) not money,

    The opinion by Judge Jay Bybee regarding the 2nd Amendment is a perfect example of why judges should be subject to criticism, removal and personal responsibility for absurd decisions that result in the loss of rights or property. That so-called "judge" is clearly not interested in justice, but only in trying to enforce his own personal prejudice against the 2nd Amendment rights of all US Citizens. He should be de-throned forthwith.
