Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It’s especially vital to remember his legacy this year because 2018 marks 50 years since his assassination.

For those of us who lived through the civil rights movement of the 1960s, who came from the South and remember the evils of segregation, who admired the Rev. King during his lifetime and remember the incredible courage he showed and the shock and grief of his assassination, this isn’t just another government holiday. It is a day to reflect on his legacy; yes, to think about how much still needs to be done, but also to look back at how far we’ve come.

Monday Fake News Bulletin

By Mike Huckabee

Monday Fake News Bulletin: On Friday, an MSNBC producer claimed that the US Ambassador to Panama, John Feeley, had resigned over President Trump’s alleged disparaging comments about some countries. That would have been quite a feat of psychic predicting, seeing as how the Embassy announced his resignation before the Trump story broke, and Feeley first mentioned his plans to resign way back in September.

I’ll leave it to you to click the link and see the nasty word that at least one Twitter user applied to MSNBC’s newsroom. But you can probably guess. It’s been in the news a lot lately.

Controlling the flow of information

By Mike Huckabee

The great promise of the Internet was that it was going to offer a free flow of information that would end control of news by governments and big corporations with political agendas. And it did give voice to the voiceless. Unfortunately, with the rise of the tech companies that gave us the giant social media and search engine sites, the biased control over the flow of information is back, only it’s moved from NYC, LA and DC to Silicon Valley.

The socialism-loving tech billionaires (only billionaires can afford to embrace socialism; its inevitable aspects of corruption and rewarding wealthy cronies are like catnip to them) can’t control what people say or write on the Internet, but they’re trying to use their platforms to control which news and opinions you see and which ones you don’t.

One of the most common ways they impose de facto censorship is by declaring that some views (mostly conservative or Christian) violate their terms of service and blocking the people who express them.

Google's leftwing group-think

By Mike Huckabee

Another favorite propaganda tool of the left that Google has adopted under the guise of “public service” is the misuse of alleged “fact-checkers.” They have started displaying as part of search results assertions that conservative sites they disagree with are not factual to discourage people from reading them, while not applying the same scrutiny or negative branding to notoriously unreliable leftwing sites. Apparently, according to one Google engineer who is suing over his being fired for holding a non-PC opinion, that’s just the tip of the iceberg of Google’s corporate culture of totalitarian leftwing group-think.

A different kind of search engine

By Mike Huckabee

If you are concerned not only about Google skewing your search results but also about the tracking and sharing of your web browsing history, I would suggest trying DuckDuckGo.com, the search engine that doesn’t filter results or record your private information. The only reason any website has power over what you see is if you give it to them. While the web may not be fully living up to its promise of free-flowing information, it’s still a place where competition rules and a better alternative can slay a giant faster than David’s slingshot.

Issa not running

By Mike Huckabee

California Rep. Darrell Issa just became the latest Republican to announce that he won’t be running again in 2018. It will be a real loss: Issa has done great work in fighting the entrenched corruption of DC, even when it often seemed he was swimming upstream in a river of molasses. Republicans had better be preparing for a major get-out-the-vote push in November. One shudders to think what California Democrats would like to replace Rep. Issa with.
