BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 

 

Correction: UPDATE: Why Dems want to destroy Trump

By Mike Huckabee

Yesterday, we mistakenly did not include the Vernon Jones interview link.  Updated below.

On Friday, we brought you an interview in NEW YORK magazine with Democrat pollster David Shur that pinpointed the danger Donald Trump poses to the Democrat Party.

In a nutshell, Trump was able to persuade a significant minority of blacks, Hispanics and Asian-Americans, disenchanted with the far-left ideology taking over the Democrat Party, that they would feel very much at home with the Republicans. The racial groups traditionally taken for granted by the left actually swing more to the right on major issues, and in 2020, ideology in many cases "trumped" race. What a wonderful thing.

Today, we bring you "Exhibit A," in the form of an interview with former Georgia State Representative Vernon Jones, a lifelong Democrat who recently became a Republican and Trump supporter and who has formed an organization called Wake Up America. While at CPAC recently, he sat down for an interview on the podcast "American Thought Leaders," presented by THE EPOCH TIMES, and told of his experience as a conservative black man in politics and why he became a Republican. His observations are brilliantly and simply stated and touch on numerous aspects of politics and culture today.

The interview runs under the title, "My Party Left Me." Subhead: "'They don't control me' --- Vernon Jones on confronting cancel culture and leaving the Democratic Party." As the title alone tells you, Jones personifies the nightmare faced by leftists as they realize President Trump has convinced many non-whites to vote according to their ideology and not their race. This is an absolute must-watch (and/or must-read, as a transcript of the interview is also included). It's Jones and people like him who give us hope for the future.

Must-Read 

By Mike Huckabee

This remarkably insightful letter from a mom to her teenage son who thinks he's"trans" - but she knows him well enough to understand that he's just "weird" and too easily influenced, but she loves him the way he is - was deleted from Medium.com for being "hate speech."

It is not. It's the exact opposite. It's the loving speech a lot more confused kids need to hear before they let politically-motivated activists destroy their lives and health with dangerous and irreversible hormones and surgery.

Senate Update

By Mike Huckabee

This weekend, the Senate is debating the Democrat’s $1.9 trillion “COVID-19 relief” bill, which by some reports spends as little as 9% of that amount actually fighting COVID. Here’s how it’s going so far:

Eight Democrats joined Republicans in killing the attempt to use the bill to nearly double the minimum wage to $15 an hour. The Senate Parliamentarian already ruled that you can’t use a budget reconciliation measure that requires only 51 votes with no filibuster option to pass a piece of major legislation like that, and several studies by economic experts warn that it would destroy many small businesses and kill hundreds of thousands of low-skilled jobs, which I kind of thought was contrary to the point of a bill meant to stimulate the economy. Naturally, Sen. Bernie Sanders disagrees with the Parliamentarian and all of those economic experts.

Note: Bernie Sanders has never run a business in his life and was working odd jobs before getting into government. He’s now worth over $2 million and owns three houses. Socialism has been very, very good to him. But like all socialists, he thinks he knows how to run everyone else’s businesses better than anyone who’s ever actually run a business.

The Democrats did reach a deal with moderate Democrat Joe Manchin to extend additional unemployment benefits of $300 a week (rather than $400, which is in the House bill) through September 6th instead of late August, and make the first $10,600 in benefits nontaxable. The problem with increased and extended unemployment benefits is that they can undermine getting the economy moving when people are paid more not to work than they would make if they took jobs. This is another thing Bernie doesn’t seem to understand.

Republican Sen. Ron Johnson made good on his threat to deny unanimous consent to dispense with the reading of the bill, and forced the Senate to spend 10 hours reading the entire 661-page bill out loud. It was depicted as a vindictive protest just meant to slow down a bill the Republicans couldn’t stop.

But I want to know what’s wrong with actually reading a bill before you blow nearly $2 trillion of the taxpayers’ money on it (actually, future taxpayers’ money, since it will all be heaped onto the national debt)? Of course, the Democrats didn’t actually stick around to listen to it. Some were out looking for TV cameras, so they could make the outrageous charge that Johnson was responsible for the 1400 people (on average) who would die of COVID during that delay. As if 1400 people would have been saved if it had passed 10 hours sooner, considering how little funding in it actually goes to stopping COVID.

For that matter, is Nancy Pelosi personally responsible for all COVID deaths related to her holding up a bill that could have passed months ago, if she hadn’t been delaying it until after the election? Is President Biden personally responsible for the 100,000+ COVID death since he’s taken office? They both blamed Trump for every death under his watch, so why aren’t they responsible for every death under theirs?

Oh, I’m sorry: I was doing something that’s not allowed in Washington: holding Democrats to the same impossible standard that they hold Republicans to.

Misplaced Responsibility

By Mike Huckabee

Speaking of misplacing responsibility, Biden’s spokesperson won’t even give credit to Trump for the vaccine he helped create while Biden was mocking his efforts. Here’s that story, along with a reminder of the truth, something Biden vowed that, unlike Trump, he would give the American people. He’s not even giving the people the truth about the vaccine and its rollout that he inherited from Trump.

Latest Outrage

By Mike Huckabee

Our latest outrageous story of someone being canceled for warning about cancel culture canceling people comes from Shelby County, Tennessee, of all places. I’d have hoped school officials there had more sense than they do in places like San Francisco, but they disappointed me by suspending high school principal Barton Thorne for saying something “triggering” to students. Here are his shocking words:

"I want you to understand the problem that's going to face you and your generation if there is no longer a marketplace, a free exchange of ideas." He went on to give them a completely accurate and unbiased history of attempts to suppress free thought, such as McCarthyism, and warned them that while nothing he was saying was controversial now, if someone came into power who didn’t like it, they could use today’s same “cancel culture” rationale to silence him for voicing these inoffensive truths.

He didn’t realize that there already was a group of people in power who would punish him for telling students inoffensive truths. He’s now suing the school district. At the link, Glenn Beck has more of what he said (everyone in America should hear his words, by the way) and an interview with his attorney.

At least one supporter is left

By Mike Huckabee

Republican Rep. Liz Cheney lost a lot of support among the GOP for her vote to impeach ex-President Trump, but at least she still has one supporter. You probably won’t be surprised at who it is.

One More Reason

By Mike Huckabee

Here’s one more reason why, around here, we feel we have to put the term “fact-checkers” in quotation marks.

It’s about the “U.S.-China Education Trust” (I think that deserves quotation marks, too), a group described as having “collaborated with Chinese Communist Party propaganda fronts and trained journalists from state-run media outlets,” and which in 2012 had as its Journalist in Residence, Bill Adair, founder and contributing editor of Politifact, one of the left’s favorite “fact-checking” sources.

    New York has its problems America has ours. Cuomo has been a scumbag most of his life no surprise there. Put him on trial give him his day in court and or leave the basturd alone. Most people find him disgusting. Like Adam Shitiff no one wants to see or hear them. Biden on the other hand should be covered day and night This is the most dangerous person on the planet. Every move although timed by an hour glass has to be monitored and not by his handlers the handlers need to be monitored every second of the day and reported on, the handlers are telling Joe what to do they are the dangerous ones. Joe couldn't remember the time on a broken watch. Secret service has to know what the handlers are doing and the CIA and FBI DOJ should investiagate the unhinged and dangerous orders. OH ADAM SHITIFF we are screwed.

    I guess Biden forgot he got his own vaccine before he became president. Trump had nothing to do with it.

    Dear Governor,

    Many of us lack the verbal acuity to put into words, with temperament anyway, what you find the ability to do daily. I understand that you are not alone in this endeavor and would like to thank everyone on your team for the work you do. For one, I appreciate all the work each of you does daily to make me a more informed citizen of this nation.

    From the bottom of my heart and the newly cultivated depths of my brain (by your efforts), I thank you. May God Bless you.

    ThIs Relief Bill is not a relief bill it causes heartburn, mental illness, indigestion, and outrage. The 15 dollar wage I don't care about it this is what the lower income bracket voted for; the effect will be automated devices to make the need for workers almost needless. The large corporations want this, to drive away small business. If the bill is for Federal workers go for it; the states should regulate the states policies for minimum wage as it sees fit. Entry level work force is a training method used for young or retired people not a livable source of income. That point for me is muted. Take away 400 dollars a month for an unemployed person for a China Biological act of war causing the population to become unemployed insane. Don't take out the benefit of unemployment caused by China. Go after China for reperations to fund this act of unemployment.

    I appreciated the link to the interview with Vernon.
    I forwarded it to my priest who is avoiding educating the congregation with a Biblicak world view. I fear the whole denomination (Anglican) will splinter if the left achieves their ends!

    The number ONE thing to change if any Republicans want to win anything again is, obviously, the voting machines and confirmation of an honest election. I don't know how the different states can do that, but it's essential.

    This mom does not realize these symptoms are classic Asberger's Syndrome--ask me how I know--
    Nothing at all to do with ""trans""" or 'wierd'
    These kids usually grow out of this affliction-at least being able to control it -- given the right nurturing and support--they are condemned for speaking the bold truth, as they see it--We need more of these kids now more than ever--as a matter of fact, their outlook may just be the boon the human race needs to extricate itself from the lies we take to be the truth---these kids can see through the false narrative faster than an intel 5i processor

    In regards to "unemployment benefits of $300 a week rather than $400". Why not give the unemployment benefits with the understanding that you must return to work and you cannot refuse to go back to your job. I know some employers hold back 2-3 weeks pay so that would be the limit for the benefits after returning to work. Paying people not to work is just not right nor good for getting the economy back on track. To me, if you are unemployed directly due to COVID, is one thing. But refusing work simply because you do not want to work is altogether a different matter and just does not make sense. Am I missing something?

    Love the America the Beautiful picture today, 3.7.2021!!! Had a business trip to Ohio several years ago and stayed in Cuyahoga Falls. It is one of the sweetest spots in the northern USA. I didn't have time to visit the national park but did capture some great photos of the Cuyahoga River along boardwalk set up in the town. It is one of my most memorable trips. Definitely, the one with the best photos! (A few of the prize ones hang on my walls!) You must have been reading my mind as I was thinking about the beauty of the river in Cuyahoga Falls earlier this week! Thanks for sharing photos of our great country! America is BEAUTIFUL!

    Dear Governor, I so appreciate your newsletter and your willingness to speak the truth. This country needs more of that. President Biden appears to be MIA when it comes to public appearances at which he actually speaks for himself, leading me to believe what I have long suspected; he is unfit to hold office. Removing him is a Catch-22 since that would make you-know-who President and the wicked witch of the House her VP. What a nightmare! What do you think needs to be done?

  • Rob Shaffer

    Great article. I especially liked the explaination about the vote distribution. I found it interesting that in this age of media motivated, race-baited, identity politics, the votes actually broke out based on education, rather than race. That speaks loudly about where we are as a nation. It tells me that the race narrative being espoused by the Democrats is not resonating with voters. That doesn't stop the Democrats from continuing to beat the race drum loudly, but thankfully, the voters are not buying into it.

    The fact that the vote broke down along educational lines rather than race makes total sense to me. Colleges and universities have become nothing more than liberal concentration camps, where students are rewarded for accepting and promoting liberal thoughts and ideas - and punished for thinking otherwise. I am a college educated white guy and one thing that I learned is that there is no degree program in common sense. You have to go along to get along, if you know what I mean.

    I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised by what the data is showing. From my personal interaction with people, I don't see racism to the degree that we keep hearing about and that is encouraging. Maybe its time that we stop making everything about race and start treating people like human beings. After all, that is how they are acting.

    Thank you for letting me comment.
