BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 


 

Project Veritas Obtains Photos From A Border Facility

By Mike Huckabee

Leave it to Project Veritas to obtain the first photos from inside a border detention facility for unaccompanied minors that the Biden White House blocked to the media. Now we know why. The photos show young boys wrapped in foil blankets and sleeping on the floor, packed in like sardines.

According to the inside source who leaked the shocking images, “The pod has eight cells that are currently holding 600 — that’s six hundred — unaccompanied juvenile males age 7 to 17. They are separated by age or physical size, depending on the room…Fifty of the individuals inside this facility are COVID-positive. There have been multiple sexual assaults, normal assaults, and daily medical emergencies.”

It’s said that these days, nobody gets angry about a story until there are pictures. Well, now there are pictures. If this were going on under Trump, there would be an explosion of media outrage (they exploded at Trump over “kids in cages” because of photos taken under Obama in 2014.) Will there be any reaction at all, or will all the left’s fury be aimed at Project Veritas for distributing “hacked materials”?



Mass Shooting In Colorado

By Mike Huckabee

Monday in Boulder, Colorado, ten people were killed in a mass shooting at a supermarket. One of the victims was veteran police officer Eric Talley, a father of seven and the first cop to arrive on the scene. His actions were described as heroic.

There are more details at the link, including comments from Rep. Lauren Boebert and Gov. Jared Polis. But at this writing, little is known for certain about the shooter. Someone was taken into custody by police, but while it’s assumed he was the shooter, his identity has not been released. That didn’t stop some people from immediately calling for more gun control laws before they even knew if they would have made any difference, but that’s to be expected. Until more is known, please pray for the victims and their families.

Also, please keep in your prayers the victims of a horrific fire that swept through a nursing home early this morning in Spring Valley, New York.

Most of the elderly residents were evacuated before the building collapsed, but at least one resident is reported dead and two firefighters were among those injured. This is a developing story, so check the news for updates.

SD Governor Noem Is Under Fire, But Stands Her Ground

By Mike Huckabee

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem is under fire from fellow conservatives for sending a bill banning transgender athletes from competing in girls’ sports back to the legislature. Last night, she had a heated exchange with Tucker Carlson on Fox News over the accusation that she caved to pressure from big business and the NCAA.

Gov. Noem denied that, saying she sent the bill back for “style and form” changes, to insure it doesn’t allow the NCAA to bar girls from the state from competing in collegiate sports, and that if they make the revisions she wants, she will sign it.

Her rejection of this bill had some conservatives in the media saying she’d blown her presidential ambitions. She insists that she backs the bill’s intentions and wants to build a coalition to fight against leftist bullying, but she won’t yield to conservative bullying either. Check out the link for the full exchange.

New Poll: Democrats/Media Overestimated COVID's Severity

By Mike Huckabee

There’s no denying that COVID-19 was a very dangerous disease, but its fearsome reputation definitely benefited from having the media as its press agent. A new poll by Gallup and Franklin Templeton found that while Democrats were more likely to overestimate COVID’s severity and Republicans to underestimate it, across the political spectrum, all Americans overstated the effect the coronavirus had on multiple factors.

For instance, 41% of Democrats, 28% of Republicans, and 35% of independents thought that if someone had COVID, there was a 50% or greater chance that they’d need to be hospitalized. The hospitalization rate was actually between 1 and 5%.

As Jordan Davidson at the Federalist points out, the media’s panic porn over COVID is what misled many Democrats into thinking that states like Florida that remained mostly open would turn into mega death camps, and when they did better than New York, to assume the numbers were being manipulated. They were actually just victims of liberal media misinformation.

That’s funny: according to the liberal media, the only misinformation comes from conservative news outlets. Guess that’s just more liberal media misinformation.

Stunned In Oklahoma

By Mike Huckabee

CNN recently asked customers at an Oklahoma diner if they thought it was a good idea to take the COVID vaccines. They were stunned when not a single person agreed that it was.

But they shouldn’t be surprised. Governments and international health authorities have hardly proven themselves to be trustworthy throughout the pandemic, and the Democrats politicized the disease so much that they deliberately promoted suspicion of the vaccine just because it was developed under Trump. Biden and Harris cynically undermined confidence in the vaccine, and now they try to take credit for it. And they wonder why people would be reluctant to take it.

I realize that many of my readers may be reluctant as well, so you might find this interesting. It’s an article by two doctors who shared those concerns about the vaccines and did a lot of research into all the questions before deciding to get vaccinated themselves. If you’re dead set against getting vaccinated, this might not change your mind. But if you’re on the fence, it might help set your mind at ease.

Split-Decision

By Mike Huckabee

According to a new Rasmussen survey, likely US voters are evenly split, 47%-47%, on the question of whether Joe Biden is really doing the job of President or whether others are making his decisions for him behind the scenes.

This may be the first such poll where the President himself hopes that people believe that he's not responsible for his own decisions.

Surprise: Some courts ARE looking at the 2020 election

By Mike Huckabee

Don't believe the media narrative that court challenges to the 2020 election are over and that we need to “move along; there’s nothing to see here.” Yes, most courts dismissed their cases without even looking at evidence, but some rulings have been made and there are still cases to be adjudicated. John Solomon has been keeping up with the activity.

In fact, now that Joe Biden is comfortably situated in the White House and Trump has dropped his own legal challenges, courts in Michigan, Wisconsin and Virginia are starting to rule that the way widespread absentee balloting was handled in these states violated state laws.

For example, this month, the State Court of Claims in Michigan ruled that the secretary of state, Democrat Jocelyn Benson, violated state law with her instructions on signature verification for absentee ballots. A month before Election Day, she had told election clerks to "presume" that all signatures on absentee ballots were valid and reject only those with “multiple significant and obvious” inconsistencies. She was challenged in court by Republicans and one election clerk, as the state legislature had not provided this guidance.

Judge Christopher M. Murray ruled March 9 that Benson did not have the authority to establish such standards by herself, that it needed to be a formal process. In other words, you don’t just “presume.” He found her in violation of the Administrative Procedures Act.

It does seem that under her extremely lax standards, any forged signature that was even somewhat close would have easily gotten through. If the legislature wants that low a standard, it will have to formalize a rule to that effect.

Also, in Wisconsin, the state Supreme Court ruled in December that state and local officials should not have given blanket permission for voters to declare themselves homebound for the 2020 election and skip ID requirements. One of the challenges was in Dane County, the highly populated area around the city of Madison. The justices ruled that county officials as well as Gov. Tony Evers, who had issued an “emergency order” earlier in the year, did not have authority to do this.

As Solomon reported, “The court filings indicated nearly 200,000 voters declared themselves permanently confined in the state’s spring primary, a marked rise over prior years, and even more did so in the general election. Biden won Wisconsin by just 20,000 votes.”

And, yes, Virginia, there’s a law against accepting ballots without postmarks that arrive after Election Day. In Virginia, Frederick County Judge William W. Eldridge IV so ruled in a consent decree in a case brought by the Public Interest Legal Foundation, which represented election board member Thomas Reed. J. Christian Adams, who is general counsel and president of the foundation, called this decision “a big win for the Rule of Law.”

Adams said, “This consent decree gives Mr. Reed everything he requested --- a permanent ban on accepting ballots without postmarks after Election Day, and is a loss for the Virginia bureaucrats who said ballots could come in without these protections.”

Additional legal challenges remain –- Solomon calls them “significant disputes” –- and Georgia and Arizona have audits and investigations of the voting machine logs pending. Of course, Solomon includes a statement, by now obligatory, about having no evidence of widespread fraud that impacted the outcome of the election, but we do know for sure that laws WERE broken, and that the outcome certainly COULD have been impacted.

Phill Kline of the Thomas More Society’s Amistad Project told Solomon that they’re “pursuing litigation” over whether hundreds of millions of dollars donated by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to the Center for Tech and Civic Life –- recall our reports on this –- and routed to local election officials in key battleground states might have unlawfully influenced the election. In fact, they’re expanding their litigation, which includes Wisconsin, land of the unsupervised dropboxes paid for by CTCL.

None of this litigation is going to pry President Biden out of the White House, but Solomon presents it as “the battle over how elections will be governed” in the future. Of course, House Democrats’ HR 1, which would legalize the actions that state judges have just ruled unlawful, would render it all (to use a favorite Supreme Court phrase) “moot.”

In another election update by Solomon, he has just obtained internal emails from election officials in Fulton County, Georgia, that are “heightening the mystery” surrounding the eyebrow-raising late-night counting at State Farm Arena.

At 10:22 p.m. on election night, county spokesperson Regina Waller emailed county officials and the State Farm Arena spokesman that “The workers in the Absentee Ballot Processing area will get started at 8 am tomorrow,” which would imply that they had stopped work for the night. But we know from the video of the arena that some kept working after the observers had left. When asked about this (presumably by Solomon), she said she was responding to an emailed question about when “all” workers would return. But she did not respond to a follow-up request to see that email.

There are other unclear and/or inconsistent emails as well from that night, and sworn affidavits that say everyone was told to leave but that a small group remained behind, as Solomon details.

Finally, in some odd post-election news, Sidney Powell has come up with a novel way to try to fend off Dominion Voting Systems, which has sued her for a trillion trillion dollars. That’s a number you normally see only in Democrat spending bills.

Actually, it’s for $1.3 billion, which is much too small to be a Democrat spending bill but a hefty chunk of change nonetheless. In a 54-page motion to dismiss, her attorneys turn the tables on Dominion, which in their suit have characterized her theories as “wild accusations” and “outlandish claims.” If Powell’s claims were so incredibly wild and outlandish, her attorneys argue, then it must also be true that “reasonable people would not accept such statements as fact but view them only as claims that await testing by the courts through the adversary process.” And if reasonable people would not believe what Powell was saying, then Dominion is not harmed.

The motion makes other points as well. “In her motion to dismiss,” writes LAW & CRIME, “Powell does not argue that the statements are true. She claims they are not actionable because they are protected statements of political opinion.”

Powell also doesn’t say she lied. That would be cause for her disbarment, which is what the state of Michigan and the city of Detroit are after.

It’s an interesting argument, although to make it she has to impugn her own claims as over-the-top crazy. Are they crazy? Whether “reasonable people” believe them or not, only an expert examination of the machines will tell us for sure. If Dominion wants to show how off-base she is, that would be an excellent way, unless, of course, there's some reason they don't want to.

    "Surprise: Some courts ARE looking at the 2020 election"

    SO WAHT??? NOTHING will be "found" and even if it was the creep and the ho and the lib turds are in control and will NEVER give it up. And by the next election the jackasses will have their voter fraud program in complete control of all the next elections, nothing will change. Even if the creep didn't beat Trump, the way the courts work, the ho will be retired from HER 8 year term of potus and again, nothing will be done. Like I said before, I have voted in every election since I was 21 but will no longer waste my time, gas, ink or stamp because we will never see another Trump potus or rino control. The jackasses have taken control, you rinos have allowed it to happen and the jackasses know what they have to do to keep it!!!!

    Re: Sidney Powell
    In your opinion,why haven't the people's affidavits held water in this election scandal? So many people from all walks of life have contributed to the cause, have put themselves on the line, and no one in authority has received them as evidence. This discourages people from speaking up and out when it is their duty in the polls. There has been no fix for this made public so people feel safe to participate as poll workers in the coming elections.

    We listened to Governor Noem, and understood her to say that she did not reverse signing the bill, but she did not sign it. Also she gave her reasons. She is right in not sitting the state up to fail. Also, I would donate to the coalition she is wanting to start.

    Only God can deliver us
    Like Israel in the past "every man is a law unto himself" Then God delivered Israel the thru the judges.

    Hi. I still cannot believe you are promoting anyone to take the EXPERIMENTAL vaccine. First, there is s 99.9% chance of not catching a virus. Second, who
    knows what will happen to anyone taking it! PASS! Shocking!!!
    Third, Trump never conceded to Biden. He won no matter what you say and Four, Biden is not
    in the Whitehouse. Nobody is.
    As much as I have listened to you over the years... I cannot help wonder if you do not have a little swamp in you blood?

    Sir,

    I am confused. Your newsletter's explanation of illegal/legal conduct in counting ballots, whether mail-in or out of a box or tabulations from a machine, is confusing. I understand that I am not the smartest kernel on the cob, but I consider myself almost average. There should be no question, either votes were counted properly, or they weren't. Shouldn't a recount compared to the old count determine the accuracy of the original count? That is the way it used to be done.
    I guess my question is--what is wrong with the old method of verification. Place all recorded votes in one location, on several computers if necessary, and recount them under both sides' supervision. Establish some controlling entity, say ten Democrat citizens and ten Republican citizens. If the counts still don't jive, close all doors, turn off the cameras, then after all the commotion ceases in the room, open the door and declare a winner.

    Sounds simple to me, but then I'm just an old poor boy from South Georgia.

    Your positivity shines through. You are a true breath of fresh air. You remind me of my dad who unfortunately died at 63.

    I saw your appearance on "The Story" earlier today. You were completely on the right track regarding DC statehood. The land that formed DC originally belonged to MD & VA... if the residents of DC want representation, those states could reclaim the majority of their former land area. DC as a state was antithetical to the founders vision. Alas, much of our current state of Federal Government surely seems antithetical to their vision...

    Keep your insights & thoughts coming!

    Your statements that the covid vaccine is safe for almost everyone is incorrect. The doctors whom you referenced are putting out untrue statements. Instead of an "experimental" vaccine (not my word but the CDD)... instead of this vaccine, we have a cheap and easy preventative that is almost 100% safe, hydroxychloroquine, 40%- 60% effective at preventing covid and no healthy have died within hours after taking this medication, unlike the covid vaccine which has a unexplainable death rate among relatively healthy people. In addition, we have a medical treatment for covid that is safe and many frontline doctors have found it to have a 100% cure rate, even with seniors in nursing homes: a five day treatment of the combo Hydroxychloroqine, zithromycin and zinc. It is disturbing to me that you promote the vaccine without reservations and without giving out this alternative choice in the same article. This has now made me cautious about accepting information from you. Too bad!

    Great story, but what troubles me is this. These people (governors and others) who made these changes and violated procedures they had no authority to change, is there there no recourse against any of them. No penalty, no consequences even though what they did was blatantly wrong.
    They must be laughing and smirking all night long.
    Whats to stop any of them from doing the same thing again if all they get is their hands slapped?

    Gov. Huckabee:
    I saw Gov. Noem's interview with Tucker Carlson. Compared to previous appearances, her demeanor had entirely changed and she was certainly evasive. Very different behavior compared to someone who was willing to take heat e.g. for her COVID regs in SD.
    Why the difference? She seemed like one of the Stepford wives. So who has what kind of leverage over her now? NCAA, Nike, others?
    It would be important for you or Fox News to do some more investigating into this story as American democracy increasingly (obviously) is being destroyed by those lurking in the dark.
    Thank you.

    The first thing I do in the morning is read your daily verse. It reminds me of WHO of really in charge. No matter how hard they try, God cannot be cancelled.

    There are some truths that people need to know, mostly Dems and the media:

    TRUTH is not defined by your truth snd my truth. It is not opinion. It is either true, not true, or not yet determined.
    OPINION belongs on the oped pages not throughout a NEWSpaper. It belong on opinion talk shows, not on a news show.
    Every mistaken thing that is said or written may be just a mistake. It is not necessarily a LIE. COVID processes are just that. Knowledge about what to do about something new in our lives changes as research is done and results prove otherwise. That does not make things said earlier that change over time a lie.
    LEADERSHIP is 90% about accomplishments and persuading others to do what is needed. It is 10% about the cover as in being Mr. or Ms, nice person, good looking, or charm.
    JOURNALISM is not about presenting how a reporter thinks it should be. But reporting the truth of what is fact except when writing clearly defined opinion essays. The NEWs is about equal treatment and presentation of facts.
    ADULTS, unless mentally impaired, are not children and can make decisions about their lives without government making it for them as long as laws are obeyed, the public is protected from real harm, and laws are fair.
    THE FACTS of LIFE. Children of elementary school age do not need to know much about sexual relationships or race theory except the need to refrain from physical intimacy until the are old enough to make good decisions. They do not need to know about LBGTQ details or be told they are evil of white. They only need to know to be kind and accepting of those who are different than they are. That is good manners and right thing to do.

    I repeat what I said isn't it strange when the Democrats are seeking to do away with the Second Amendment they always managehave these horrible shootings.

    It's almost as if they paid for them. Just saying ...
