BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY

John 1:3 KJV

Gather ‘round the TV tonight for another great new episode of “Huckabee” on TBN!

Christian cake artist Jack Phillips will give us an update on his never-ending legal persecution by LGBTQ activists. Mark Ludwig will tell us about the benefits of equal shared parenting.

More Signs of a Return to Sanity
By Mike Huckabee
I nominate as CEO of the Year Tobi Lutke, CEO of the e-commerce platform Shopify. Taking a bold and firm stand against the wave of “woke” corporations, Lutke recently wrote a letter to all his employees, explaining why Shopify rejects pushing personal political agendas. It’s also a much-needed primer on what a business is and what its purpose should be, one that a lot of other CEOs obviously need to read…and if they won’t, their shareholders should tie them down and read it to them.
I urge you to go to the link and read the whole article, but here’s just a small taste to entice you:
Lutke tells his workers that the idea of a for-profit company being a “family” is “preposterous.” You’re born into a family and can’t be fired from a family. Shopify’s employees are a “team,” with a goal of using entrepreneurship to help millions of merchants do better and millions of people find employment. As for those who put their personal political goals ahead of the company’s goal, “everyone that engages in endless Slack trolling, victimhood thinking, us-vs-them divisiveness, and zero sum thinking must be seen for the threat they are: they break teams.” In short: get "woke," get fired.
Yes, this should be Business 101 stuff, but the very fact that it actually has to be told to employees shows you just how badly the leftist Twitter mob mentality has corrupted every level of American society.
Now, let’s make the current Pentagon leadership stop promoting transgenderism and firing people for criticizing Marxism long enough to force them to watch “Patton.”
The fight to expose Planned Parenthood's barbaric practices
By Mike Huckabee
The abortion industry, in the form of the National Abortion Federation, continues its endless legal war against undercover journalist David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress for daring to expose Planned Parenthood’s barbaric practices.
They already got friendly California legal officials (two of whom, Kamala Harris and Xavier Becerra, are now in high-level DC positions) to abuse their powers to file multiple felony charges against reporters for doing their job. Now, the NAF not only wants everything else Daleiden uncovered to be permanently blocked from release (the recent vote audits have shown us how much liberals fear the public seeing evidence of what they do), they’re also asking a court to force Daleiden to pay $7.4 million in attorney’s fees and costs. They blame him for dragging out the case and running up their costs because he dared to defend himself against their frivolous harassment of him. I believe the legal term for this is “Chutzpah.”
A spokesman for the nonprofit Thomas More Society, which is defending Daleiden, called the demand “outrageous” and an attempt to bankrupt and punish anyone who challenges them. He said they will fight it and expect to eventually prevail, but if they don’t, it will set a case precedent that can be used against all undercover journalists to tie them up in court for years.
That’s always been the astounding thing about this case to me: Daleiden’s group did nothing that “60 Minutes” and other investigative news outlets don’t do all the time, only they did it to Planned Parenthood. You’d think that news organizations would be all over this story, denouncing it as the blatant assault on press freedom that it obviously is. But they are either so terrified of crossing Planned Parenthood or so invested in abortion rights themselves that they would sit back in silence and let the very bedrock rights of their own profession be aborted rather than side with pro-life journalists.
You can read more about this case at the link above, and to learn more about the Thomas More Society and all the cases they take on to protect “life, family and religious liberty,” and how you can help, visit https://thomasmoresociety.org.
Proof "Progressives" want to bring back last century's failed ideas
By Mike Huckabee
I’ve explained many times that the word “progressive” is now used to describe people who live in the last century and want to bring back a number of terrible, proven-failed ideas from long ago, from segregation to judging people by their skin color to socialism and communism.
If you think I’m just being a right-wing reactionary, let me draw your attention to Columbia University, an elite school with a 3% acceptance rate, where the annual cost of tuition, fees, books and supplies, room and board and other expenses is a lavish $79,814. It prides itself on being extremely “progressive.” And it’s not only brought back racially and sexually segregated graduation ceremonies, but the children of the wealthy who attend can now join the newly sanctioned “Columbia Communism Club.”
It touts itself to students by saying that if you want to “better understand leftist theory,” then “join us today and be a part of the movement!”
Having lived through decades of watching how communism really works, let me save you some trouble, kids. They talk a lot about “theory” because that’s the only place where communism works. Even Homer Simpson understood that. Everywhere that it’s actually tried, it leads to corruption, tyranny, poverty, torture, oppression, deprivation and death – by conservative estimates, the deaths of about 65 million people worldwide since 1917.
Now, let me offer just two words of advice to any parents whose kids are thinking of going to Columbia: “Trade school.”
PS – Here is what should happen to Columbia University:
The Worms Turn
By Mike Huckabee
Now that past anti-Semitic tweets by journalists are being dug up and getting them fired, liberal “journalists” like MSNBC’s Joy Reid are suddently bemoaning “cancel culture” and accusing conservatives of engaging in it.
Sorry, Joy, you can’t make up a game and then complain when the other side demands that you play by your own rules. Just be glad that MSNBC doesn’t fire its employees for posting tweets that conservatives find to be offensively stupid.
