BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 

Two Very Different Nominations

By Mike Huckabee

Thursday, the Senate confirmed former California Attorney General Xavier Becerra as Health and Human Services Secretary by a 50-49 vote with Maine Sen. Susan Collins as the only Republican supporting him.

Republicans had two basic objections to Becerra:

1. He’s a rabid leftwing partisan with zero respect for freedom of conscience, mostly known for abusing his office to prosecute critics of Planned Parenthood, and…

2. We’re dealing with a pandemic and he has zero experience with anything remotely connected to health and human services.

In short, he’s a pretty typical example of a divisive, partisan, unqualified Biden Cabinet pick. On the other hand, when he actually chooses someone worthwhile, that person can attract bipartisan support. Thursday, the Senate voted unanimously (98-0) to confirm Katherine Tai as US trade envoy.

Tai is the first Asian-American and first woman of color to hold that position, just as Becerra is the first Latino to hold his new position. The difference is that Tai has qualifications beyond box-checking. She has years of experience in trade negotiations and is considered to be a problem-solving pragmatist, and she said she would work for a trade policy that benefits workers, not just big corporations, and work with our allies to confront Chinese aggression. Let's hope that turns out to be true.

Police Reform 

By Mike Huckabee

I could probably fill this newsletter with examples of terrible California bills that are largely responsible for people fleeing the state, yet that Democrats want to take nationwide. Here’s another one that’s coming up for consideration and is so horrific, it will probably pass and then be forced on all America by Nancy Pelosi. It’s a “police reform bill” called California Assembly Bill 655.

It would require police departments to investigate any potential new hires to determine if they had ever “engaged in membership in a hate group, participation in hate group activities, or public expressions of hate.” So, what’s wrong with that? We all hate hate, right?

The problem is the SPLC, the Southern Poverty Law Center, which I call America’s most lucrative hate group. Once a legitimate civil rights group, the SPLC devolved into a corrupt, partisan enterprise that scares liberals into sending them money by claiming to find new hate groups around every corner. Since there simply aren’t enough real hate groups to satisfy their greed, they started branding mainstream conservative and Christian organizations as “anti-gay hate groups” if they believe in the Biblical definition of marriage or oppose the radical transgender agenda.

It was an unbalanced SPLC follower who, influenced by their false claims, burst into the headquarters of the Family Research Council, firing a gun.

Any responsible organization would have done some soul-searching at that point and changed its ways, but the SPLC doubled down. And major government and private organizations have the SPLC their go-to authority on “hate group” designations, even though they directly inspired an extremist to launch an armed assault in Washington, DC, which I thought Democrats believed was a bad thing now.

The upshot is that if California passes AB 655, police departments will likely use the SPLC to determine “hate groups,” which will mean virtually any mainstream Christian or traditional values conservative will be blocked from becoming a police officer. It might even apply to any member of a pro-life group, since the SPLC might tar them as “hate groups” for wanting to deny women their constitutional right to kill their babies.

Back when the First Amendment still applied, this was known as “religious discrimination in hiring.” Just one of the many awful things, from socialism to segregation to judging people by their skin color, that today’s so-called “progressives” are unearthing from the last century and trying to revive.

Best Political Theater of the Week

By Mike Huckabee

Watching Sen. Rand Paul, himself a medical doctor, grill Dr. Fauci on his claims that even after everyone is vaccinated, they’ll still have to wear a mask (or two) for another year or more.

While the back and forth was fun (Paul: “You’ve been vaccinated and you parade around in two masks for show”), Paul had a very strong point: if we’re trying to overcome people’s resistance to getting the vaccine, it’s counterproductive to take away the incentive for it by telling them that even if they do, nothing will change and they’ll still have to follow draconian pandemic rules for another two or three years.

Prof. Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit has quite a round-up of data from around the world to back up the claim that lack of trust in officials like Dr. Fauci is behind the resistance to get vaccinated, even among frontline health care workers.

And on the subject of masks, a new study comparing Florida schools that did and didn’t mandate facemasks found virtually identical infection rates, with a sharper drop in cases in schools that didn’t require masks.

Pelosi Is Pushing A Radical Left Agenda

By Mike Huckabee

Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues to use her bare Democrat majority in the House to push a radical left agenda, with the House on Thursday passing the benignly-named (as all these bills are) “Farm Workforce and Modernization Act” and “American Dream and Promise Act.” Those rainbows ‘n’ daisies names cover for bills that actually create a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants, and not just the small number of “Dreamers” who were illegally brought to the US by their parents as children.

The first bill passed 247-174 with 30 Republicans in favor and one Democrat against. The second passed 228-197 with nine Republicans joining all Democrats voting in favor.

The majority of Republicans who opposed the bills argued that this was rewarding people for breaking US immigration laws while those who obeyed the laws are stuck in the back of the line. It’s also sending a signal to the world that we reward illegal immigrants at a time when we’re already facing a massive surge and a humanitarian and security crisis on the border because of the Biden Administration revoking all of Trump’s successful border security measures.

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy pointed out that Pelosi held a press conference to tout the bills with a sign reading, “Home is Here,” which he called the “wrong message at the wrong time.” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott warned that that message is already out.

Since the bills would have to overcome the 60-vote threshold to avoid a filibuster, they’re likely doomed in the Senate (provided the filibuster – and the squishy Republicans – hold). But even knowing that, the House passed them anyway, which leads me to assume Pelosi knew that the only thing they would really accomplish is to encourage an even bigger surge and crisis on the border. That and playing up to illegal immigrants, but why would Democrats care about that? They don’t vote, right?

    This nation will not survive if We the People do not take our nation back ourselves. Can not depend on politicians from the Republican side, too many RINO'S and way too many traitors. When the Republicans could of done something and supported President Trump and America First, they did not. And now the RNC has the audacity to request $ for 2022!! Get real. The evil Dems will either pass HR1 and change elections forever or steal every election forward just as they did in 2020. The Supreme Court completely part of the Deep Swamp and not at all interested in defending our Constitution, the evil Dem-Communist are completely out of control to destroy our Republic and no one in government will do a damn thing about it. Can not depend on anybody but true Patriots and it strongly appears the next civil war is on the horizon because government has miserably failed. If God doesn't intervene with His supernatural power and We the People don't gather and support each other in massive numbers against the agenda of the Dem-Communist, left liberals and cancel culture we are doomed!!!!

    I did vote for you in a primary in my early voting days, and I was terribly disappointed you didn't win. 'Course, my very first time of voting was the only time I have ever voted for a winning presidential candidate. ?? That was Mr. Bush on his second term. Also, just a disclaimer, I did not vote for Hillary Clinton! And, after seeing that Mr. Trump actually did some good things for the country, I was one of the millions who finally decided to join the bandwagon. I was just so fed up with Democrat policies throughout 2020. Here we are waist deep in more of that balogna. I am hoping and praying that states will be able to protect us from some of that, but ultimately, my trust is in God for the protection we need right now.

    Thank you so much for writing these newsletters! It is encouraging to know that good people with influence are still standing up for truth and righteousness.

    Nothing to do with today's newsletter, I just need to vent something. Picked up our taxes from the CPA this morning and was happy to see we were getting a $2303.00 refund. Then I was questioned about EIP2 for $1200.00. I said we didn't receive it until Jan. 2021 so shouldn't affect our 2020 taxes. Reply: " Oh, but it will"! Factored in the $1200.00 EIP2 payment, and our refund dropped to $1103.00! So, bottom line, our EIP2 payment of $1200.00, cost us: $1200.00!!!! What was the point??

    * Is the SPLC a "hate group"? They influenced one of their followers to shoot up the headquarters of the Family Research Council. If he was a Republican, Pelosi would have the SPLC labeled by now. Perhaps they need to remove the log (so large it blinds them) from their own eye before pointing out the speck in someone else's eye.
    * The Bible is the oldest law book in the U.S. It is based on love, not hate. But, the liberal Democrats are too ignorant to admit it. God will be the final judge!

    Mike, thank you so much for your newsletter. You explain these Bill's coming out of the House of Representatives in terms everyone can understand. I write to my representative frequently (sometimes I wonder if he gets tired of hearing from me) but he always graciously answers my concerns and tells me his stand on these issues. I really believe if more people took the time to write their representatives changes for the better might occur. After all, when a person is hired for a job, their supervisor gives a review at least once a year to evaluate their performance. Our elected politicians are no different. We need to let them know whether we approve of their performance or not. I urge people to write to their representatives. It's easy to do and not that time consuming. If people don't start taking a stand, our constitutional freedoms are going to be taken away. As I read some where, silence equals approval. Words are powerful. Let your voice be heard.

    Being taught early I am saddened at the push by Marxists to legalize sin and crimes against mand God. What is worse is this is supported by many religious leaders and their followers.
    Seeing Israel is the example of what God does to a nation that He repeadedly warns when she turns to other Gods how much will happen before He pulls the curtain down on us.
    Even smaller nations are fighting the left.
    Only God can save us but He calls us to respond. Like in the Revolution and Civil War
    Keep up the good work Mike. You and other conservative speakers are still standing for the truth.
    You shall know the truth and truth shall set you free.

    Gov,

    You probably know of this already, but I just want to make sure. South Carolina Democrat has introduced a bill to ban minors from sex-change drugs or surgery.

    Dear Governor Huckabee
    The last time I looked, we are supposed to have 3 branches of government—-1. the Executive branch,2. the Legislative branch, and 3. The Judicial branch...the Supreme Court. Why has the Supreme Court been so silent while the Legislative branch has been “shredding” the Bill of Rights? Why haven’t they stepped in?

    This just goes to show what I have been saying. The Democrat Party is no more. They have become a blue Reich.

    They only want Vichy politicians
    Gobbel media
    Quisling churches And collaborators And they want to turn our military into their SS. And our police into their Gestapo There is nothing Republicans Or anyone else in government can do -- they don't have the votes.
    We the people have to start to organize the resistance.
    That is the only way we will save our country.
