BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 

Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.

Psalms 62:1 KJV

Biden is pressuring Israel

By Mike Huckabee

Predictably for a Democrat Administration, President Biden is reportedly pressuring the Israelis to “wind down” their offensive in Gaza.

https://www.newsmax.com/politics/israel-palestinians-diplomacy/2021/05/18/id/1021869/

Hamas is still firing rockets at Israel, but liberals think that nine days of fighting to stop them is enough and Israel should pull back now. Where have I heard this strategy before, of pulling out before the enemy that attacked you is defeated? Oh yes, it was under Obama/Biden, when the troop pullout to meet an election deadline created a vacuum that allowed for the rise of ISIS.

How about if the Biden White House lets Israel make its own decisions about protecting its people? They’re obviously far more competent at it than anyone in the Biden White House.

Case in point: House lawmakers are frustrated with the Biden White House’s “total lack of a sense of urgency or a plan” to aid thousands of Afghans who worked as interpreters and in other jobs for the US. They’re in danger of being hunted down and killed by the Taliban after Biden pulls all our troops out by September 11th. Florida Republican Rep. Michael Waltz, a former Green Beret who worked with Afghan interpreters, said, “The day the last U.S. soldier goes wheels up out of Bagram air base, we’ve handed these people a death sentence.”

https://www.politico.com/news/2021/05/18/lawmakers-visas-afghans-us-troops-489290

House members sent a bipartisan letter to Biden on April 21st, urging him to expedite special immigrant visas for Afghans who helped Americans. The average time to process a visa is 800 days, there are now only 115 days until the planned Afghanistan pullout, and Biden hasn’t even responded to the letter they sent nearly a month ago. It sounds as if he put Kamala Harris in charge of it.

The State Department says it added staffers to process the visas, but that’s not sufficient considering the “massive bureaucratic delays” they have to deal with.

Does anyone else get the feeling that if we still had Trump in the White House, those bureaucratic delays would be cleared out of the way if it meant saving thousands of lives?


NEW POLL

President Biden is pressuring Israelis to “wind down” in Gaza.  Hamas still firing rockets, but liberals say Israel should pull back.

Do you support Israel's right to defend itself against Hamas' rockets and terror?


A criminal investigation

By Mike Huckabee

The New York Attorney General’s Office announced that it is joining with the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office in investigating the Trump Organization, and that this is no longer just a civil investigation but a criminal investigation.

https://redstate.com/shipwreckedcrew/2021/05/19/the-new-york-attorney-general-announces-the-investigation-of-trump-inc-is-now-a-criminal-matter-n382864

Let me put that into plain English for you: “We haven’t been able to come up with any legitimate civil offense to charge the Trump Organization with, so our equally politicized state prosecutors are going to launch their own fishing expedition.”

If you think it’s coincidental that in making this monumental announcement, they failed to list any actual criminal activity of which Trump’s company is suspected, then you’re living in a fool’s paradise. This is Banana Republic territory, abusing the legal system to prosecute political opponents. Or more precisely, Stalinesque: it was Lavrentiy Beria, Stalin’s head of secret police, who infamously said, “Show me the man, and I’ll show you the crime.” There’s a place for him in the New York “Justice” system.

As the article at the link points out, this idea that Trump is some sort of crime boss who personally keeps two sets of books is a bizarre fantasy of the left, the same one from which sprung the idea that if they could just see his income tax forms, they could prove he committed felonies. They seem to imagine him staying up till midnight on April 14th, filling out his tax forms himself. It never occurs to them that (1.) if he were going to commit felonies, he certainly wouldn’t admit it on his income tax forms, which the IRS has had for years and never brought charges over, or (2.) that the tax forms for Trump and his multinational network of companies run thousands of pages and are prepared by platoons of accountants and lawyers. They know every jot and comma of tax laws and how to take advantage of them legally.

As the article also points out, Trump undoubtedly has much better lawyers than the ones who work for the city and state, and they will be ready to legally justify every decision that’s questioned. You’d think that in a place where serious crime is skyrocketing, prosecutors might have better things to do than waste time and taxpayer money playing Captain Ahab against a political opponent who left office four months ago, and possibly driving yet another major employer out of New York. But then, you don’t have their warped priorities.

In a related story, and speaking of dumb decisions about criminal justice by blue city leaders, Baltimore is following the lead of Los Angeles and New York City in re-funding its police department with an extra $28 million.

https://www.outkick.com/baltimore-defunded-the-police-by-22m-last-year-after-crime-surge-its-refunding-at-28m/

This follows a huge surge in crime that happened after the city council defunded the police with a $22 million cut last June (who could've seen that coming?) So bottom line: Baltimore taxpayers get to pay an extra $6 million just to try to get the police department and the crime rate back to where they were before the city council caused so much pain and misery with their own stupidity.

Now that they’re re-funding the police, Baltimore voters should re-ject their city council and demand a re-fund of their salaries.

A pipeline Biden likes

By Mike Huckabee

After killing US jobs and harming both the environment and America’s energy independence by killing the Keystone XL Pipeline project, President Biden has at last found an oil pipeline he can get behind. Axios reports that the Biden State Department plans to waive sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, a pipeline that’s being built to transport Russian oil to Germany.

https://www.westernjournal.com/biden-canceled-keystone-pipeline-will-waive-sanctions-company-charge-russian-pipeline/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

The CEO of Nord Stream 2 is a close friend of Vladimir Putin, and critics say this pipeline will allow Putin and his cronies to gain a stranglehold over Europe’s gas supply. Nikki Haley said Biden just gave Putin a huge gift.

Now, reread that story, replace the name “Biden” with “Trump,” and imagine how our media would go absolutely bonkers accusing the President of being a Russian puppet.


10-Year-old obliterates argument for masks at school

By Mike Huckabee

I get the feeling (and it’s a hopeful feeling) that I might have seen a future President of the United States enter the national consciousness when this video went viral.

https://www.westernjournal.com/watch-10-year-old-boy-obliterates-schools-mask-mandate/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

It’s 10-year-old fourth grader John Provenzano, who gave an impressive speech before his school board in Marin County, Florida, pointing out the illogical mask mandate rules, the health problems they’re causing, and the hypocritical ways in which the mandate is being enforced, and pleading for an end to it. In a quote that would make the Founders proud, he declared, “Breathing freely doesn’t seem like something we should have to ask any other people for permission for.”

Unfortunately, the board didn’t have the wisdom of this 10-year-old and voted to keep the mandate in place until summer school starts.

For those who think John was just reading a statement written by his parents, check out his terrific appearance last night on Tucker Carlson’s show. I could name a few Congress members that I’d love to see him replace right now.

Most Disappointing News of the Day (reposting because this is still the most disappointing news of the day)

By Mike Huckabee

Don Lemon’s hints that his conservative-bashing CNN show was coming to an end were just a cheap publicity stunt. All they’re doing is retooling and renaming it to “CNN Tonight With Don Lemon,” an obvious rip-off of the more highly-rated “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox News. It really should be illegal to get people’s hopes up that high when you don’t really mean it.

Not a legitimate civil rights group

By Mike Huckabee

In case there are still any illusions that Black Lives Matter is a legitimate civil rights group rather than an organization run by radical leftists (not that it’s ever been much of a secret),

https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_morningbrief/blm-founders-video-from-10-years-ago-reveals-her-love-of-maos-red-book_3815297.html

its leaders just declared “solidarity” with the Palestinians, accused Israel of colonialism and said, “We will continue to advocate for Palestinian liberation.” What that has to do with protecting black lives is beyond me. But it does put them squarely on the side of Hamas militants who started this current violence by firing hundreds of missiles indiscriminately at Israeli civilians, so it appears that Jewish lives don’t matter a whit to them.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/black-lives-matter-hamas-terrorists-israeli

Naturally, BLM’s siding with the Palestinians elicited cheers from odious groups such as the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, who accuse Israel of committing war crimes in striking back against Hamas. In response, the Israeli Defense Forces pointed out that Hamas hides among civilians, using them as human shields, and that the IDF warns civilians ahead of strikes on Hamas facilities to give them time to get to safety. They tweeted, "Israel fights to protect its civilians. Hamas uses civilians to protect itself."

It seems like a pretty obvious difference, but I guess if you think Hamas militants who are firing missiles at innocent civilians are the good guys, you’re easily confused. Not that I expect the leaders of BLM to read this, but here’s an article by Dennis Prager explaining why anti-Semitism is the worst form of racism.

    The Democratic party has a pipeline of imbeciles that lead cities and states into destructive results and it seems there is no one that can shut the pipeline off. The number of fools that elect these imbeciles leaves little hope that cities and states run by Democrats have little chance to be exceptional or good or fair the best result will be a poor result otherwise continued disaster is what they have and the future is failure. The Voter needs intervention to elect someone with intellect that will bring positive changes to its dismal lifestyle. biden cuomo bebalsio frey lightfoot these people are filled with hate, ignorance, greed and use the power of the office to to bring misery to the uninformed that that put them in office. Thats the template for a miserable lifestyle.

    The Nord Stream 2 pipeline: I hope Germany knows what it’s doing. They will get used to the oil and Putin will call in his favors. Either way, royalty kickbacks will surely make it to the Biden family.

    Her’s another great idea. Why not hire Americans to build the pipelines? I understand our workers and equipment are idle and we have plenty of new pipes that can be used. Our workers should go where they are appreciated. Our current administration doesn’t care for them.

    Is any government agency in America today have any value? The MSM has no value of truth, the Justice systems has only one sided justice, now our medical agency the CDC has very little value as to the truth. Our Oval office residence is occupied by a person in deep mental decline and should be removed, the middle east is on fire, the energy sector is now raising gas prices due to oil drilling and fracking permits biden shut down ,lumber for building is scarce and now our military is being gutted and mental midgets are being put in charge, the military will soon look like Chicago's streets chaos and disorder, the people in charge do not have enough brain capacity to do the job; that alone should be enough to rid biden and harris from the Oval office.

    My take on Biden regarding this pipeline fiasco is that Biden just doesn't care about the American people nor their heirs. Ending the Keystone Pipeline and basically ignoring the hacking of the pipeline out of Texas to the Northeast (which the jury is still out on that one as to who "really" hacked into their computer system - my theory is that it was done by none other than the Biden Administration using the usual Russia motif as the bad guy) are just a part of the destroying of the oil industry in order to put money in Biden's pocket by his funding and backing Ford and other carmakers to produce electric cars. Biden knows he won't be for this earth much longer so why does he care if our children and grandchildren travel in electric cars. The elites will still drive around in gas cars being paid for by taxpayers. He will continue to travel in gas-driven cars until he dies and when he's gone his family line will live off his stealing of American taxpayer monies.

    How can the medical professional allow biden stay in office ? Most medical doctors would take the keys to the car away from a person like joe biden in his mental medical condition but his "doctor" is on the golf course in a remote country and can not be reached or is just another paid by the DEMS to look the other way at joe's condition. biden making policies has the same effects of letting a legal blind person drive a 18 wheel truck across our nations highways the results are deadly and costly.

    The two are apples and oranges. First, the pipeline from Russia to Europe is the second of two, both selling to Europe, not America, and designed to supplement other sources of energy for Europe. The US has done everything possible to stop this pipeline, which is all but complete now, including alienating Germany by essentially "ordering" it to stop the deal (leaving Germany and other European nations owing Russia many billions of Euros). The Germans will not budge, no matter what. On the Keystone, you are absolutely correct. The ban on this source of energy is insane and destructive to the country, but that is the goal of those in the saddle today, or so it seems to me.

    I was wondering if you could write a piece that explains what is going on between Palestine and Israel. I know that Hamas is a terrorist group, but whenever I talk to a liberal about the situation in Israel, they say that Israel is at fault. I could research all of this myself, but I trust you to write something that explains it to me in laymen's terms. Thank you for all you do!!

    Thank you for the Tucker video of the 10 year old and his father in Florida. Having worked in education and raising children, I applaud this intelligent young man. I loved that Tucker said there should be many more like him. Sad that 2 officers were called in to take a protective father from a school board meeting, who obviously wanted answers and rightly so. Sad that the teachers' union votes 99% of the time with democrats and that's where most of the union dues go as well. Happy that everyone isn't brainwashed by so called educators.

    Biden Administration thinks they will get a good deal from the Soviet union
    to Germany pipeline. Biden thinks Putin will sell him the oil, but instead will
    only hear nothing but nothing but echoes from the empty pipeline at the terminal.
    Remember his inept son Hunter was with a Ukrainain Oil Company and this
    pipeline goes right through the UKRAINE , that Putin now control from
    the inept leadership of him and his buddy Barack in during the
    period he as Vice-President.

    If our country does not bring those people and their families who helped us out of Afghanistan promptly before our troops leave, I will be deeply ashamed of my country. Furthermore, no one will ever trust us again, nor should they. I feel we are abandoning a lot of women and girls who will be deprived of education, medical care, and the ability to make a living.

    Israel is a success story and Palestinians still live in the dark ages. Democrats can’t stand success unless it is their own personal one. I hope American Jews see the light and at least go Independent. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see a wholesale abandonment of the DNC by our Jewish population? People like Bernie are such hypocrites.
