Evening Edition - March 7

March 7, 2020

After a week full of historic political news, join me tonight for a new episode of “Huckabee” on TBN. I’ll talk about the devastating tornado that struck near our studio in Nashville (and please remember to donate now at http://www.samaritanspurse.org to help the victims). Lt. Col. Oliver North will drop by, and Rep. French Hill will discuss the government’s efforts to contain the coronavirus and other hot button issues. Bestselling author Cal Thomas will tell us about his new book on whether America has a future. On the lighter side, we’ll have some laughs at the news, an insider’s personal memories of baseball legend Joe DiMaggio, and the world-renowned Christian music duo, the Gettys.

All that and more is headed your way tonight on “Huckabee” at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, and the same times on Sunday, on TBN. To find where you can watch TBN, from local cable and broadcast channels to streaming, visit https://www.tbn.org/huckabee and click on the “WATCH” menu at the top. You can also stream previous episodes, highlights and Internet-only “Digital Exclusives,” like extended interviews and extra performances by our musical and comedy guests.

Friday, President Trump signed an $8.3 billion funding bill to fight the coronavirus. Here’s some more information on that:

Here’s today’s round-up of the latest headlines about the coronavirus, courtesy of Instapundit:

And if Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) are going to keep trying to blame Trump for the virus, then they should also give him credit that it just killed an Iranian official who took US diplomats hostage and helped establish the terrorist organization Hezbollah.

-------------------------

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is the latest court to decide that it, not the President, has the power to set immigration policy. The Court blocked Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy for asylum seekers along the California and Arizona borders, where it has jurisdiction (at least this time, they didn’t try to make their court orders nationwide.) The policy requires asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their requests to enter the US are being examined, rather than letting them in, where they can simply disappear into the population.

https://www.fox23.com/news/politics/court-blocks-remain/RJLR5DYXH2CATBJ4AULA7QMDVM/

The court stayed the order until March 12 while the Trump Administration petitions the Supreme Court to overrule it, before large numbers of foreigners start streaming across the border. That could be disastrous when they’re trying to contain the coronavirus (this has already proven to be a problem with the spread of tropical diseases from Central America into the US.)

Note to Justice Sotomayor: THIS is why Trump has to keep coming to the SCOTUS for emergency rulings. They aren’t fantasies made up by the White House, they’re actual emergencies caused by leftist lawfare litigants and out-of-control judges who constantly ignore the Constitutional limits of their powers.

--------------------------

There’s a meme that’s been going around the Internet for years. It’s a drawing of a 1950s-style professional-looking man, holding his hand to his forehead and looking pained and annoyed. The caption reads, “Oh, no, not THIS (Bleep) again!”

I could write a thousand-word essay about this article, but I think that one picture would do just as well. It’s 2020. We’re already campaigning for the NEXT presidential election. Just get over it already!

----------------------------------------

Those who mocked President Trump’s threat to sue media outlets that printed fake news about him as empty bluster were shocked when his campaign actually filed a defamation lawsuit against the New York Times. They’ve now added the Washington Post and on Friday, CNN. The lawsuits accuse all three outlets of knowingly and deliberately causing the Trump campaign millions of dollars in damages by publishing derogatory claims of a conspiracy with Russia which they knew at the time of publication to be false.

https://www.westernjournal.com/trump-campaign-hits-cnn-lawsuit-millions-dollars/

There is good news for the New York Times in these latest filings. Both the Washington Post and CNN have recent experience in dealing with this exact type of big money defamation suit and could probably give some advice to the Times’ lawyers. They might want to think twice before taking it, however:

-------------------------------

People feign outrage whenever anyone suggests that the left is actively trying to destroy America, but even if you grant that they aren’t, if they WERE, what could they possibly be doing that’s any different from what they’re doing already?

Here are a couple of inexplicable cases in point: New Yorkers have watched in anger and astonishment over the past few months as a new state law (written by the Democrats they elected to absolute power) allows criminals to be released without bail to commit the same crimes over and over. To no thinking person’s surprise, this has vastly emboldened criminals and sparked a big jump in crime.

https://dailycaller.com/2020/03/06/174-democrats-tsa-transportation-security-officers-act-house-amendment/

In New York City, major crimes were up 22.5% in February from one year ago, and shootings were up 7.1%. Since the strict gun laws have only gotten tighter since then, while only restrictions on criminals were loosened, someone with rudimentary deductive skills might think that proves controlling criminals is a more effective way to reduce shootings than passing more gun laws.

New York City has seen increases in robberies, felony assault, burglary, grand larceny, grand larceny of a vehicle and hate crimes. Of course, attacks on police officers are up. Even “squeegee guys” are back! Rape is down slightly from 2018, but that could just be due to failing to report it to police

Retired NYPD Bronx detective Malcolm Reiman was there in the hellish pre-Giuliani days under liberal Mayor David Dinkins. He told Fox News, “Crime was out of control. People forget how bad it was…Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it."

https://www.foxnews.com/us/anxiety-grips-new-york-amid-concerns-of-rising-crime

Reiman said, "You would walk down the subway steps every day, and all you could smell was urine; it was littered with muggers and mentally-ill people everywhere. Subways were truly terrifying places. Those protesting today don't know what it was like for everyone back then."

Well, they’re getting a taste (or smell) of it now, and without even having to fly to San Francisco or L.A. But what did they expect when they elected (and reelected!) Dinkins’ far-left protégé, Mayor Bill DeBlasio, who seems more concerned with protecting criminal illegal aliens than his own cops and constituents?

Maybe the power of video will shake some sense into New York voters’ heads if they see this latest horrific outrage on TV or social media. A 15-year-old girl in Brooklyn was surrounded on the street by five male teens (reportedly “friends” of hers with whom she’d had an earlier altercation.) They savagely beat her and left her lying on the sidewalk with head trauma and other injuries before stealing the Air Jordan shoes off her feet and running away. Luckily, the entire sickening assault was caught on video, and the alleged attackers turned themselves in to police. Although, under the current regime, who knows if anything will happen to them, or if they’ll be out beating up another girl by this time tomorrow?

This is what happens when young people have no respect for the law or the police. And why should that be a surprise when the political leaders in charge of enforcing the laws obviously have no respect for the law or the police either?

    I really enjoyed your show last night, particularly the segment with the Gettys. I am so glad there are those who are preserving the hymns I grew up with. So many churches have fallen into the 7-11 pit--seven word phrases sung 11 times.

    The only hope is to re-elected Trump. Otherwise we are doomed. I lived in a socialist country for 25 years and my parents escaped from the Soviet Union. I would like to send you a article published in the magazine New America about the communist Chinese organization in United State who are helping de demo rates to win in the elections like in Virginia. Is not my imagination and I visit the Soviet Union twice. The language used by the progressives, leftists and Democrats are the same as the soviets used. Theo Pope (40 ) 573 -0388 How can I send this article? Thank You

    This is the THIRD TIME I have emailed you concerning the times Huckabee show airs on TBN. Unless TBN has different schedules in different parts of the country, your show airs at 8pm on Saturday and 9 pm on Sunday. You always say the show airs the same time both days.

    You wrote, "People feign outrage whenever anyone suggests that the left is actively trying to destroy America", TO which I say, it doesn't matter whether or not they are ACTIVELY trying to destroy America because their godless values ARE destroying America...the America that was called, at one time, "0ne nation UNDER GOD", because it was founded on godly values!

    In my comment, yesterday, to your earlier newsletter, I made the remark that Christians don't have a clue as to how it was the supernatural power of Christ's love that enabled David Wilkerson to say to Nicky Cruz...after Nicky had beaten him up..."Nicky, Jesus loves you, and so do I!" ....THOSE WORDS from the bleeding lips of David Wilkerson moved Nicky to put down his gun and pick up a Bible.....
    and to this day, this once murderous gang leader is GIVING to other gang kids what one David Wilkerson gave to HIM so many years ago!

    It is scandalous that when I minister to gang kids that THE only example I can give to kids...who have been turned off BY Christians who don't have a clue as to how Christ's love lays down its life for one's "enemies" ....IS David Wilkerson! This fact is made even more scandalous by the fact that when Jesus said, "by their FRUIT you will know them (know who are REALLY Christians), that FRUIT He was referring to is HIS agape love that can..and DOES....love one's enemies!

    Two weeks ago....the day after I'd gone to the new church Mark Harris is pastoring and heard him preach...I stated in my comment that I wrote that Mark had preached THE most anointed...powerful...message I have heard, coming out of a church pulpit, since I moved here to Charlotte (FROM New York) twenty six years ago.....AND....

    The REASON I said that OF Mark's message is because he talked about KNOWING God with the "eyes of your HEART" because there is a difference between knowing ABOUT the Lord and KNOWING the Lord " and WHY that, for ME, WAS such a powerful message is because it explains WHY Christians....unlike David Wilkerson...DON'T have a clue as to what Christ's love IS and what it DOES because of what it IS!

    In view OF Mark's sermon, do I believe there is more than a good chance that he DOES "know" what David Wilkerson "knew" and if this IS true then I can say OF Mark Harris that he HAS the same kind of prophetic HEART that David Wilkerson had. ...and if THAT is true then Mark Harris can STILL be used of God to make a difference in this political saga even though NOW it will be OUTSIDE....rather than INSIDE...the walls of Congress!

    I am writing this comment to you only hours before I am planning on visiting Mark's church again....because....it was only on this past Thursday that I learned who the speaker was at the National Prayer Breakfast which I found to be unbelievable since, when I wrote to you ABOUT Mark Harris, months ago, I mentioned this speaker's name in connection WITH Mark because of the relevance of said speaker's message TO what, even back then, I had discerned of Mark's prophetic heart and, therefore, one who could GIVE this speaker's message like David Wilkerson could have given it!

    SO....I NEED TO HAVE MARK'S DISCERNMENT AS TO WHETHER THIS IS A COINCIDENCE OR A GOD INCIDENT!

    Governor, please help me to understand how a Circuit Court of Appeals, or any other court or judge except perhaps the SCOTUS, can stop a presidential order, especially where border security is concerned. I guess I don't have the gray cells to see how this country's legal apparatus gives them that kind of clout, and it's even more confusing when you describe them as "out-of-control judges who constantly ignore the Constitutional limits of their powers." If they in fact have such Constitutional limits, what gives? It's all "non sequitur" to me. PS, thank you for being such a constant beacon of truth.

    I have visited some 26 other countries and numerous islands in my lifetime thus far. I have lived twice in Japan. I have been in almost every, if not all, state in our country and lived in 10. I thank God very frequently for allowing me to be born in this country. I am saddened by these sniveling, spoiled rotten, progressives, who either do not travel or do not see and hear. I believe so much of it is guilt driven, why should I live in this great country while others in the world do not. When they see black people, or Hispanic people, or gay people, they see victims. I see people, most who are good and some who are bad, just like all people. When I hear of late term abortions, I think of that as murder. They think of that as empowering we poor downtrodden women. You want to see downtrodden women visit the Middle East. When they see a successful white male, with the exception of themselves of course, they see sexism, evil, unfairness, racism and all the other isms. I see most working white men as hardworking providers. Most are good, some are bad, just like anyone else. When I see or hear POTUS, I see a successful white male who has a lot of flaws, arrogance, boorishness, a temper, and temperamental. I do NOT see a sexist but know he has engaged in sinful behavior. But I also see a man who is doing his level best, could have continued to enjoy the good life in his late years, and who has done wonders with our economy which has impacted all races, all sexes, all ages to the good. He may, or may not be a Christian but he stands for Judeo/Christian ethics at least in public life. I see a man who has held up under inconceivable hatred being directed at him. I see boundless energy despite his age. They see a long red tail and horns. Nothing the man does or says is any good. His beautiful, smart and talented wife is either ignored or criticized for wearing the wrong kind of shoes. They see an antisemitic. I see a man who was happy to see his daughter marry a Jew, convert and give him little Jewish grandchildren, plus supporting Israel. I ask you Governor, what in Sam Hill is wrong with this picture. I also see the oh this so diversity driven party down to running two old white men, one a Marxist and the other possible failing mentally. God gave us a wonderful gift of this Country. He must be crying.

    I BELIEVE THAT REPENTANCE BEGINS AT THE HOUSE OF THE LORD AND IT STARTS WITH THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST FOREIGN MISSION BOARD WHO TRIED TO FORCE ME TO HAVE AN ABORTION WHEN I WAS 9 MOS. PREGNANT OVERSEAS.>>>MY CHURCH HAS ALLOWED ME TO STAY IN A CONSTANT STATE OF UPSET HYSTERIA Because I HAVE BEEN BLACKMAILED HERE REGARDING THE SAFETY OF MY THEN BABY BECAUSE OF HIS DUAL CITIZENSHIP.. THE MORAL COWARDICE & SPIRITUAL HOMOSEXUALITY OF THESE MISSIONARIES IS BEYOND ANY DEGREE OF DECENCY & HONOR LET ALONE RESPECT FOR THE CONSTITUTION. BECAUSE THE MISSION BOARD HAS USED THE CONSITUTION & MY CIVIL RIGHTS AS TOILET PAPER TO WHIPE THEIR LITTLE HINES WITH. IN FACT SPEAKING OF CIVIL RIGHTS. THE MISSIONARIES WHO TRIED TO FORCE ME TO HAVE AN ABOrtioN AT 9 MOS. PREGNANT OVERSEAS ALSO TOLD ME GOING INTO THE DELIVERY ROOM THAT I HAD NO RIGHTS MY HUSBAND Could LET ME DIE ON THE DELIVERY TABLE---SOME CONFIDENCE BUILDER----brp
