BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Acts 2:38 KJV

 


Hoist By Their Own Petard

By Mike Huckabee

Some Michigan residents who don’t want to comply with Democrat edicts to wear masks if they’re not vaccinated have hit on a brilliant response. They’re saying, “I identify as fully vaccinated.”

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/matt-margolis/2021/05/25/epic-some-michigan-residents-use-transgender-logic-to-go-maskless-n1449491

How can liberal officials argue with that? If they’re going to insist that “identifying” as female makes a male genuinely female, then identifying as vaccinated must actually make you vaccinated, right? I’m really looking forward to the arguments from the “Party of Science” to try to explain why the former is true but the latter is false.


Memorial Day

By Mike Huckabee

Next Monday is Memorial Day, and with the pandemic easing, a number of observances that were canceled last year will be back this weekend. Some will have live audiences while others will still be virtual events, but you can join in via TV or the Internet. Since Memorial Day weekend is also the unofficial start of summer, I know many people will be taking advantage of their first chance in a long time to hit the beach, lakes or parks, or to shop Memorial Day sales. But please remember the real reason for this holiday: to honor the military heroes who gave their lives so that we can enjoy the freedom to celebrate this weekend.

Fox News has a round-up of some of major Memorial Day events here:

And I also have a special Memorial Day edition of “Huckabee” planned, so please be sure to join us this weekend on TBN.


Still racist?!?

By Mike Huckabee

Despite a rising number of calls for investigations into the true origins of the COVID-19 virus, the New York Times’ “health reporter” claims that anyone who suggests it might have leaked from a Chinese lab is a racist. It really makes you question things. Like, “Why should I believe any health story I read in the New York Times?”

The Left targets Chip and Joanna again

By Mike Huckabee

If there’s one thing leftists hate, it’s successful Christian conservatives who don’t bend their knee to the woke Twitter mobs. So they’ve long targeted Chris and Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper.” Their first “so what” attack on the Gaines family was for attending a church where the pastor opposed same-sex marriage. That failed to shock anyone but the terminally clueless. Now, The Hill newspaper has tried a new tack, running a hit piece that accused Chip Gaines of donating $1,000 to a school board candidate who (gasp!) opposes Critical Race Theory in schools.

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/leahbarkoukis/2021/05/26/the-hilljoanna-and-chip-gaines-n2590027

This assault blew up in their faces in two ways:

1. Anyone in their right mind should oppose Critical Race Theory in schools. It’s divisive, Marxist-derived, racist garbage that teaches children to feel shame, guilt or helplessness based on their skin color. Most parents didn’t even realize until recently that their kids were being indoctrinated with this poison, and now there’s a nationwide movement to kick it out of schools. Tennessee just became the latest entire state to ban it.

2. The school board candidate Chip Gaines donated to…is his sister.

The Hill reporters might need Chip to come to their houses with his tool belt to help remove their feet from their mouths.


Trump Interview

By Mike Huckabee

This week, former President Trump gave a wide-ranging interview to Newsmax TV. He touched on everything from social media censorship to the vaccine rollout, the border crisis and more. If you missed it, you can see it on YouTube here:

Thanks, Maxine!

By Mike Huckabee

Rep. Maxine Waters has been in Congress for 30 years, and I’m astonished to report that she’s finally accomplished something good. Of course, it was completely unintentional, but still…

https://www.judicialwatch.org/corruption-chronicles/congresss-vip-air-marshal-program-canceled-after-maxine-waters-debacle/

Last month, Waters sparked backlash when she traveled to Minneapolis to fire up the mob and try to intimidate the Derek Chauvin jury into voting guilty. In true leftist hypocrite style, while she was there to condemn the police, she demanded plenty of police protection for herself, including two Federal Air Marshals pulled off of high-risk flights just to accompany her, even though she was already covered by a four-man detail.

Her behavior was, to quote the trial judge, so abhorrent that the backlash has now caused the cancellation of Congress’ VIP Federal Air Marshal program. Until Waters, most Americans didn’t know that Congress was using dozens of FAMs as their personal security. One whistleblower said that so many air marshals were being diverted from commercial flights to protect Congress members that it “left a glaring hole in America’s air security.” After Judicial Watch exposed the program, it’s been canceled. There are now dozens of Federal Air Marshals sitting around airports, waiting for real missions.

So for the first time ever, Americans can say, “Thanks, Maxine!,” and not mean it sarcastically.

UPDATE on Facebook's covid censorship

By Mike Huckabee

Yesterday, just for fun, we offered up an exuberant thank-you to the almighty Facebook for, as of Wednesday, magnanimously allowing previously-banned speech about the Wuhan Institute of Virology as a possible source of covid-19. Until now, only the wet-market "accidental" origin hypothesis, which left the Chinese government blameless, has been allowed on FB. Now, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell has a response on the same subject that picks up where our tongue-in-cheek commentary left off.

Ironically, he responded on Twitter. Like Alan Dershowitz, he sees enormous danger in letting social media be the "speech police."

https://cnsnews.com/blog/craig-bannister/bozell-facebooks-suppression-valid-debate-covid-origins-reveals-consequences

"Facebook," Bozell said, "which claims to be fighting misinformation, essentially admitted today that THEY have been spreading misinformation for over a year. Yet another reason to remove the protections Facebook and others receive from Section 230."

The Facebook "fact"-checking program has been shown to be fraudulent, in actively suppressing valid debate on the origins of covid-19, favoring Chinese propaganda instead. This has to stop, not just with covid-19 but across the board.

And if you think this is bad about Facebook, check out what former FB employee Morgan Kahmann had to say about that company's secret --- well, formerly secret --- "Vaccine Hesitancy" algorithm. It's the latest Project Veritas video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWtnO2Li-HA

This is a strategy through which comments that are deemed, either by "robot" or by human "rater," to be "vaccine-hesitant" are suppressed on Facebook. This whistleblower's story about a program that mimics some attributes of Communist China's "social credit score" should be more than enough for us to insist on an end to social media censorship and narrative-shaping.

We've seen that what they label misinformation can turn out to be correct, and their chosen "facts" are the misinformation. For example, multiple stories over the past few days have suggested that those who've already had the virus might want to think twice before getting the vaccine and likely don't need it anyway, as they have strong natural immunity from fighting off the real infection. Uh-oh, would Facebook tag me as "vaccine-hesitant" just for passing this information along? (I'm not --- I got the vaccine.)

Even though this whistleblower was fired for speaking out, he's glad he did it, and he has a message for other staffers, about 25 percent of whom he estimates are uncomfortable with what they're doing with algorithms at Facebook and might want to go public, too: "I'd say go ahead and do it. And just think about what I said. There's a lot of blowback to telling the truth. And that's true as far as human history is concerned....Just weigh it out. Can you live with yourself for the rest of your life if you work at Facebook and you knew about this? Especially if it came out later, and you're like, 'Man, I saw that so many times. I could have said something and, I didn't."

"I have to show somebody this," he continued, "because at least, even if nothing were to come of this, and for some reason everything was scrapped, I would still think...that it was worth it...At least I tried, I tried to show somebody this."

Be sure to watch the whole video. At the end, there's a website address to visit if you would like to help Morgan and his family.



A Reader Writes Back... 

Good morning, Gov. Huckabee,

I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am to see that you use the KJV of the Bible for your daily posts! I think that’s a great thing in the day and time in which we live. It seems that nowadays a new translation or paraphrase comes out every month!

As a fairly new subscriber, I have not seen your position on climate change. Today’s scripture made me think about it. I am certain that you have commented on it before, and I just missed it.

I want to thank you for your stand and for the common sense you use in presenting the truth. May the Lord continue to bless you and your family. I hope that Sarah wins by a landslide!!

    'Wake Up From WOKE!'
    This needs to be on tee shirts, billboards, and yard signs. I'm stunned how many folks don't have a clue what 'woke' means. I hear that question asked several times a week from people I know.

    R.E.: "Hoist by their Own Petard"; uh, hate to break it to you, but Babylon Bee has been offering that T-shirt for
    well over a month...also, on a different subject, I am considering posting your (sarcastic) thank you letter to FB on my (essentially inactive) Facebook page, just for fun, and to see how long it takes before they block it or virtually slap my hand! Kinda looking forward to hearing from them, not to mention all the outraged individuals who will be convinced that it is somehow offensive. I don't do it often, but sometimes it's fun to poke the bear!

    If the Dem's decide to take away gun from the legal population then it would only be fair for all of Congress and the President to not have gun protection. No more bodyguards paid for by the government and no security on airplane or anywhere. They will be just like everyone else is treated except for the criminal's who know how to obtain guns for their own use.

    I love the way you see things and the way you write. You condense and clarify serious issues in a way that ordinary people can understand. You shine the light of truth on pure evil—but you cut it down to size with good humor and wit, so that we are not left feeling frantic or demoralized.

    When I say “good humor,” I mean just that—humor that is morally good, righteous satire and mockery that is really funny! Evil is taken seriously, but it looses its ability to overwhelm us when we see it in perspective (with logic, through faith in God) and laugh at its absurdity. You strengthen the souls of patriots and saints with your insight and humor. Thank you!

    "The Hill reporters might need Chip to come to their houses with his tool belt to help remove their feet from their mouths."

    Talk about contortionists, having their feet in their mouths while their heads are up their rear-end. Definitely a feat I could not manage.

    I was glad to see the article on FB. Using CCP techniques many of us real citizen's already knew it suspected.
    We have to continue to hammer away at the lies perpetrated by Big Tech and the shadow government.
    I just hope many leftists view this. I know many troll you and attempt to spread lies about this and other conservative groups
    We now have to research "conservative" groups. I recently found some that have a conservative up front but the funding and staff are from the left. The way Marxists act like termites. Infiltrate and destroy the foundations. Many millions ready to take back and restore the Constitution!

    Quote from the cover of the book, "Red State Coalition":

    "In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act."

    Your reader Martha Harvey says one cannot get the illness after getting a vaccine. That's not entirely correct. The standard flu vaccines is in the range of 60-70 per cent effective, which means you have a 30-40% chance to get the flu. The covid-19 vaccines are in the 90-per cent effective range, but still a small percentage of vaccinated people are going to get the virus. I got the swine flu vaccine back in 1976, when I was in the Army at Fort Lewis, Washington, and I came down with the flu, which then turned into pneumonia. I have not had a flu shot since then.

    Governor Huckabee,

    The logic of racism. As the Democrats keep spending money faster than the Treasury Department printing presses can print it, and changing the meaning of words faster than Webster can print them, the meaning of the definition for "preference" has now become "racist". That being the case, everyone who has a preference is a racist. If EVERYONE, and I mean EVERYONE, including Democrats (have preferences) are racist , where is the stigma in what is now such a meaningless word? The Democrats have managed to take an extremely powerful and valuable word, and reduce it to worthless rubble. Just like everything else they touch.
    I am sorry if I offended anyone that has a preference and reads this comment.
