1. DAILY BIBLE VERSE
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
3 John 2 KJV
Tonight's verse was recommended by Raymond S.
2. One word for Biden's Jan. 6 speech: DISGRACEFUL
That's about all there is to say at the moment after seeing perhaps the most DISGRACEFUL and unpresidential performance in memory. (Of course, there are many synonyms, including abominable, shameful, disgusting and dishonorable.) We just wanted to note that before press time for the Evening Edition. See tomorrow morning's edition for a thorough take-down. No holds barred.
3. You get what you pay for
You get what you pay for, in this case racial divisions and spiraling crime rates. And someone paid plenty to buy that for America.
Thomas Edsall of the New York Times (!) just published an investigative report called “The Law of Unintended Political Consequences Strikes Again” that tallies up the amount of money that “progressive” elites and philanthropic entitles showered onto divisive, racial groups after the killing of George Floyd. The total was nearly $25 billion (yes, “billion” with a “b.”)
It’s the largest outpouring of “philanthropy” ever spent on a single cause in such a short time, probably by a factor of 10. And aside from vastly enriching a lot of so-called socialists and grifters, it’s also torn the country apart, aggravated racial divisions and gotten a lot of criminals released (I question whether those were unintended consequences.) It's also gotten a lot of innocent people killed, many of them black (murder victims in blue cities are disproportionately black, and black neighborhoods are suffering the most from reducing the police presence there.) It’s also helped fund the most radical left elements of the Democratic Party, pushing the party so far to the left that it’s likely about to get wiped out in the next elections.
So at least something good may eventually come of all the money that was parted from all those fools.
PS - Speaking of voter backlash and unintended consequences, look at what blue state COVID policies are doing to Florida voter registration. Looks like these refugees don't need to be reminded not to vote for the same policies that drove them out of blue states.
4. Progressives push for four more Justices
By Mike Huckabee
I don’t know if this qualifies as news, since (A.) nobody would be surprised that these people would do this, and (B.) there’s no way it would pass the Senate even if enough House Democrats were suicidal enough to back it. But just for the record, the Congressional "Progressive" Caucus is once again pushing to add four more Justices to the Supreme Court and pack it with leftwing radicals.
“After thoughtful consideration, the Progressive Caucus membership has determined that the urgent work to restore American democracy must include expanding the Supreme Court,” said Caucus chair Rep. Pramila Jayapal, whom I am convinced has never given thoughtful consideration to anything.
You can read more of her rantings at the link if you must, but just note that if these people really cared about democracy, they’d stop trying to force this radical power grab onto a nation whose people, according to a recent Morning Consult poll, support the idea by only 26%.
5. Congratulations are in order!
By Mike Huckabee
Congratulations to Navy Capt. Amy Bauernschmidt, who after a stellar Naval career has just become the first female captain of an aircraft carrier when she assumed command of the USS Abraham Lincoln.
There are more details at that link, along with some thoughts about why the media and feminist leaders have been so quiet about this remarkable achievement, as well as other groundbreaking achievements by women who hold patriotic or conservative views. Why, it’s almost as if you’re not really a woman unless you’re a leftist, just like how if you didn’t support Joe Biden, you weren’t black.
6. The "Technical Definition":
By Mike Huckabee
The CDC claims that the “technical definition” of “fully vaccinated” has not changed, and it still means two doses of an mRNA vaccine or one of the J&J vaccine. However, in a tacit admission that there will be no end to the boosters, Dr. Fauci says the term “fully vaccinated” is being replaced with “up-to-date shots.”
In a related story, a man in Germany tried to promote COVID vaccinations by arranging his flock of 700 sheep into the shape of a giant hypodermic needle.
Not sure if he thought through all the messages that some people might take from associating the vaccine push with controlling sheep. If not, the comments section may surprise him.
7. Two far-left Democrats escape Blue states for freedom of Red state Florida
By Mike Huckabee
First AOC, now Rep. Eric Swalwell is the latest far-left Democrat from a locked-down blue state to go straight from blaming the pandemic on Republicans to being caught vacationing maskless in the reviled free state of Florida.
This hypocrisy is as blatant as it is unsurprising to anyone who follows these people closely. But many Americans don’t follow politics all that closely (lucky them), and are shocked that anyone could be such obvious hypocrites.
Kurt Schlichter had a great comment in a subscriber-only article at Townhall.com about why merely pointing out their hypocrisy isn’t enough:
“Let’s not fool ourselves that they will somehow be shamed into suffering the same inconveniences (as) their lessers, i.e., everyone else. They won’t. At some level, they want us peasants to see that they are beyond the rules they make for mere mortals. To whine about it for the sake of whining about it is to practice helplessness…When we point out their hypocrisy, we need to have a purpose, and that purpose is to wake up everyone else. Hypocrisy means nothing to us because we already know these are bad people. But it is powerful juju when it comes to people who have yet to gobble the red-pill and see the members of our garbage ruling caste for (what) they are.”
8. A Christmas Present
By Mike Huckabee
Dr. Robert Malone, one of the inventors of the mRNA technology used in COVID vaccines, says that if you believe in God, the Omicron variant looks like a Christmas present. He said it’s so infectious, it’s blowing right past all the vaccines, but so mild that to his count, it’s caused only 10 deaths worldwide, and is spreading natural immunity to everyone who gets it. Malone said it’s acting like the kind of vaccine scientists might design on purpose, and “This is about as good as we could possibly want right now in terms of outcomes.”
What a hopeful, positive message about a possible end to all this pandemic fear and paranoia. No wonder he was banned from Twitter.
No, I’m just being facetious. Here’s what actually got him banned from Twitter.
