BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 

 

We Are All Neanderthals Now

By Mike Huckabee

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott fired back at President Biden for calling his lifting of the state’s facemask mandate “neanderthal thinking.”

Abbott made two good points: First, that’s not something a President should be saying (particularly one whose sole qualification for replacing the previous President was his claim that he doesn't call people names), and second, the biggest COVID threat in Texas right now is coming from Biden himself.

He’s the one who’s brought back the terrible immigration policies that are igniting a new wave of illegal border crossings, with those captured being released inside the US. And we know some of the ones recently picked up tested positive for COVID-19. Some of them got on buses in Brownsville and headed deeper into the US, with the city saying it didn’t have the authority to stop them.

You know, you’d think that even a Neanderthal would have enough sense not to just stand around doing nothing when something threatening entered his family’s cave. That’s a good way to get eaten by a saber-toothed tiger.

Angry Democrat Rep. Wants More Arrests

By Mike Huckabee

Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee is angry that only about 300 people have been arrested for the rioting in the Capitol on January 6th when there were 40,000 Trump supporters in town that day “with the mindset to overturn a legitimate election and to kill the Speaker, the Vice President, and Members of Congress…What kind of justice is that?”

I can’t believe I have to explain this to someone over the age of five, much less a Congress member of over 25 years' standing, but here goes:

They weren’t arrested because they didn’t commit a crime. What you’re pushing is called “guilt by association,” an idea Democrats used to oppose. The 40,000 peaceful pro-Trump protesters were just exercising their First Amendment rights, which they have a right to do…you know, under the First Amendment.

One Twitter commenter suggested that Lee was advocating arresting people just for thinking. I can see how that would be advantageous for politicians like her.

Biden's Choices

By Mike Huckabee

President Biden’s OMB pick Neera Tanden was forced to withdraw her nomination due to bipartisan Senate opposition, and now, another high profile appointment might be in trouble.

Katie Pavlich at Townhall.com reports that Biden’s choice for Health and Human Services Secretary, former California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, failed to secure majority support from the Senate Finance Committee, so it will take Democrat Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to advance him to a full vote in the Senate.

Becerra has two issues common to Tanden, and indeed, a number of Biden appointees: he’s a rabid leftwing partisan who’s alienated all the Republicans, and he has zero qualifications for the job. For comparison, the previous three HHS Secretaries were a top pharmaceutical company executive, a doctor and the head of worldwide organizations fighting hunger and poverty. The closest Becerra has come to anything involving health or human services was trying to railroad some undercover reporters into prison for exposing the barbaric abortion practices of Planned Parenthood.

Republican Sen. Ben Sasse summed up the problems with Becerra perfectly:

“This isn’t complicated: In the middle of a deadly global pandemic, Americans want their Department of Health and Human Services to be focused on health and human services — not culture wars. If bullying nuns and trampling First Amendment rights could magically cure COVID, Becerra would be qualified. He’s not right for the job, and the Senate needs to reject this hyper-partisan nomination.”

Amen to that. So far, the Biden Administration is making the same mistake the Democrats did the last time they held total power in 2008-2010: thinking that gave them a mandate to shove a leftwing agenda down America’s throat, whether we wanted it or not. And Biden’s even worse because he campaigned as a moderate, bipartisan unifier and is governing like an arrogant leftist ideologue. People are not only upset at the policies, they’re furious because they’re starting to feel they were bamboozled (news flash: they were, as we tried to warn for months before the election.)

In 2010, after the Dems forced Obamacare on us, Republicans gained 7 Senate seats and took back the House with a net gain of 63 seats, the biggest party shift of power in 60 years. Democrats who understand how narrow their House margin is and how precarious a tied Senate majority is might want to reflect on those numbers before backing any more far-left nominees or unpopular AOC-approved legislation.

Pelosi's House Approves For The People Act

By Mike Huckabee

As expected, last night, the House voted 220-210 to pass HR1, the astoundingly misnamed “For The People Act,” a massive voting “reform” bill that could more accurately be called the “Cementing a Democrat Majority Forever By Legalizing Vote Fraud” Act. Think I’m overstating it? Read what’s in it, then contact your Senators to let them know they had better bury this deeper than nuclear waste.

Incidentally, the bill passed the House with only one Democrat opposing it and all Republicans opposed except for two who didn’t vote.

Meanwhile, as all the attention was on the vote for the bill to prevent ballot suppression of such stalwart Democrat voting blocs as Imaginary-Americans and the Living-Challenged, Pelosi’s House also passed the “George Floyd Justice in Policing Act,” another bill with a name designed to disguise its noxious contents.

Critics say it should more accurately be called the “Federal Defund the Police Act,” since its unfunded mandates would cost police departments nationwide hundreds of millions of dollars, the equivalent of removing over 3,000 cops from the streets. (Only one Republican, Texas Rep. Lance Gooden, voted for it; but he later said it was a mistake and corrected the record.)

Do you know what the House really needs to do if it wants to protect the American people? How about a bill to force Congress to abide by the same truth-in-advertising laws that everyone else has to follow, so they’ll stop trying to sell us poison while calling it candy?

Stimulus Checks

By Mike Huckabee

When voters in Georgia were about to decide in a runoff whether or not to leave the Senate in the hands of the GOP, then President-elect Biden promised that if they elected the two Democrats, “those $2000 (COVID relief) checks will go out the door.” (Sounds like bribery for votes to me, but I assume the authorities will overlook that.)

Well, the voters elected two far-left Democrats, and here’s what they’ve got to show for it.

In the latest version of the bill in the Senate, the $2000 checks have shrunk to $1400 (unless you’re a federal worker, then you get one every week), and income eligibility has shrunk from $100,000 a family to $80,000, which means 8 million fewer Americans will get aid than got it under Trump.

To quote punk rock icon Johnny Rotten, “Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?”

Governor, I send your newsletters to my friends and family. I only wish there was a way to reach all of those who only know what the MSM is reporting.

    Governor,

    There are only 2 kinds of good Democrats at this point. That is the ones in jail. And the other is the ones that are no longer in office or power. As they many times proven, they cannot be trusted to honestly and faithfully execute the office they are "elected" to. After the 2020 election we know that it was stolen. And folks you and I had better fight to the bitter end to make sure HR1 doesn't become law. There is no ignoring it anymore that the lying leftist, drive by media and the criminal Democrats are out of control. If we don't stop it now we have only ourselves to blame. We can no longer turn a blind eye to what is going on. Its only going to stop when we call the left out and put an end to it! Period!

    Governor Huckabee, I read your newsletter daily. I find it very informative and very helpful in my discussions with others to be able to defend Mr. Trump and his policies as opposed to this present government.
    I also wanted to let you know that I am a 71 year old, white Christian female, who was de-platformed from Facebook. Without giving me a reason, they just blocked me from getting on one day. Now, if I want to get back on I have to provide a picture ID for approval. Not on your life am I going to do that. I will stay off and get the real information coming out of Washington D.C. from you and others who ONLY GIVE US THE TRUTH.
    Thank you for who you are and how you keep watch over we, THE PEOPLE.

    We live in Georgia and enjoy reading your posts and follow you regularly. In several posts, however, you have attacked and blamed Georgians for turning over power to the Democrats. Please understand that nothing could be further from the truth. The runoff election in Georgia failed to elect a Republican for the same reasons Donald Trump lost the 2020 election. FRAUD!

    Yep, we said it, the "F - Word". Governor Kemp and Brad Raffensberger betrayed all of the voters in Georgia. None of the evidence presented during the Georgia Senate's election fraud hearings were investigated. The Dominion voting machines were never forensically examined. Kemp only authorized a recount of the ballots in Cobb county; not Fulton where most of the fraud occurred. Republican ballots were "lost" in the mail or simply shredded or switched by the voting machines. You can't say we didn't show up based on the number of Republican ballots cast. The lines at polling places were long both during the 2020 election and the runoff.

    Trump signs and flags are still on many yards in Georgia. We feel betrayed and hopeless because even the Supreme Court will not step up to investigate the 2020 election. If HR-1 passes, Democrats will always maintain control and our country will become a socialist state.

    When Governors shut down schools and business what numbers do they use to make that decision? In my state approximately 6500 deaths have been reported at this point china Virus all with the exemption of about 2400 came from Nursing Homes and other places for the elderly. So I have a question why the Governor did not put a priority on vaccinating our elderly first? Did he want the elderly to die quicker than normal? Is a shortage of care facilities a reason, make room for younger old people? Or use the number of deaths to enhance fear of the China Virus to push the lockdowns going to church, children to go to school, letting the teachers union blackmail the States citizens, or to hurt Trumps reelection by not using nursing homes China Virus deaths, that report in this state has not been on local propaganda outlets in this state the mass majority of China Virus deaths happen while citizens were being "cared" in Nursing homes while millions of people shoped the big box stores, shopped the grocery stores, also the count of deaths in hospitals were people died of cancer or heart failure or were killed by accident or murdered while with the China Virus in their body was counted as death by Covid what is the Govenor thinking or doing not letting the older people get the vaccine first?

    Can Biden's Handlers tell me the difference between invaders with the China Virus coming from China or South America, other than they came by airplane or they came by land vehicles, and got on buses, cars, trains, and traveled thru out the Country, sitting shoulder to shoulder for hours and then went into large populated districts and spread the virus among millions of people. Does that sound or is good judgment or is it criminal to allow the spread of the killing virus by foreign lawbreakers it is an assault with a deadly weapon and it will kill by foreign invaders. Would that be a declaration of war by Foreign Countries?

    Proud to be a Deplorable Neanderthal Chump that shops at Walmart and occasionally eats at Olive Garden!

    The border states of TX, NM, and AZ need to form their own coalition to finish the wall and set their own immigration policies.

    Then build a wall along the eastern border of CA and AZ. Let CA have all the immigrants since they are so gung ho about them coming into the country.

    Also, TX, LA, and OK need to form their own oil and gas coalition to become self sufficient and supply gasoline to the red states. There is enough refineries and O&G corporations in these three states to make it happen.

    Let the blue states be governed by DC. Then we will see who comes out on top!

    On 2/20/21 I received a letter from the IRS informing me that a check for $600 was on it's way as a stimulus check of some sort. Today 3/4/21 I STILL hadn't received it. i called the # in the letter, a lovely lady (Ms. Williams) checked my SS# and found the check was ISSUED JANUARY 6, 2021. She told me to wait another week, if I don't receive it, call back and a "tracer' will be put on it which would make me eligible for a deduction on my 2020 income tax return and the "tracer" will validate that deduction. Is this an IRS scam? NO check in hand, but I can deduct that amount from my taxes. I don't understand this action. YES, I DO FEEL CHEATED. Being 80 and many health issues, that money could help pay for some of my medicines (just had nearly $1500, out of pocket charged last month to my Visa (which I use for meds, only). And now their holding another mindless stimulus check as a tease, to pass their MASSIVE pork barrel payoffs to their favorite "friends". Thanks for any insight you can offer, at this time, will be a big help. Love your newsletters, they are so informative and precise. I look forward to reading them every day. Thanks, again, ALL.

    Dear Governor,
    Thought you enjoy this and maybe get a chuckle at the inability of Senator Kaine to even address what I actually asked of him.... guess I got the “canned letter”.

    I sent 2 emails one to Va Senator Kaine and one to Senator Warner in reference to the Equality act . I haven’t heard from Warner...

    Senator Warner,
    I am writing to you to urge you to vote NO for the HR5S 788. His act will overhaul our existing federal civil rights. If passed, this bill will impact multiple individuals, communities, and businesses. This will affect family owned business, women, girls teacher, Doctors along with others in our state. This Bill targets and undermines the basic religious freedoms this country was founded on. It targets our foundation freedom of religion. I firmly believe this bill creates inequality not equality!

    Well, I just got this back....didn’t even address what I ask of him to vote no. I never once mentioned lesbian, or Homo.....

    Ms. Cowan


    Dear Ms. Cowan:

    Thank you for contacting me to share your thoughts on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights. I appreciate hearing from you.

    I believe that all people should be treated equally, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. As Governor, my first act was to sign an Executive Order banning discrimination against state employees for sexual orientation. In the U.S. Senate, I am proud to have been one of 212 members of Congress who signed an amicus brief that challenged the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) before the U.S. Supreme Court. This brief argued that there was no legitimate federal interest in denying married same-sex couples the same legal security, rights, and responsibilities that federal law provides all other married couples. I welcome that, in June 2013, the Supreme Court struck down DOMA as unconstitutional.

    The LGBT community has experienced many challenges, but also successes, on its long road towards equality. Following the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don't Tell,” our brave patriots in uniform can finally serve the country they love no matter whom they love. An increasing number of LGBT legislators are elected to Congress, and in June 2015, the Supreme Court extended the right to marriage to same-sex couples across the country.

    Despite these important advancements, LGBT Americans still lack critical legal protections against discrimination. That is why I have cosponsored the Equality Act. This bill would amend federal civil rights laws to explicitly prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in education, employment, housing, credit, and federal jury service. I was pleased to see that on February 25, 2021, the House passed this bill by a vote of 224 to 206. No Americans should be banned from a jury, evicted, fired, or denied public accommodations because of who they are or whom they love.

    Please be assured that I will continue to fight for equal protection under the law for all Americans. I believe our country is making important and unmistakable progress in becoming a more tolerant and accepting society. Thank you again for contacting me.

    Sincerely,

    Signature

    Tim Kaine

    Dear Governor,

    Best wishes to your lovely and smart daughter. Hopefully the people of Arkansas will do the best thing for the state and vote for her, a daughter following in her Dad’s footsteps.

    Hopefully the Senators will stop these terrible bills from landing on Biden’s desk.

    Please read the letter from ZOA to Random House regarding the factual and implied mistakes and lies in the Obama Book, The Promised Land. It does make one wonder why Jewish people in this country vote mostly Democrat. If their accusations are correct this book is a travesty since many people worship Obama and Michele and will believe anything they put out.

    Do Democrats know what definition of truth? Yes, the GOP can tell some whoppers, too but nothing like the quantity of garbage put by the progressives. History and Science? My old Aunt Fanny! Please let us know if the government was taken over by those big bad, Trump supporters people today.
