John 13:34 KJV

 

The kneejerk media anti-Trump bias

By Mike Huckabee

I’m linking to John Kass at Real Clear Politics, but a number of media outlets are reluctantly admitting that the main reason they treated any suspicions of COVID-19 escaping from a Chinese lab as a racist conspiracy theory that had to be silenced is because President Trump suggested it.

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2021/05/26/the_wuhan_story_that_finally_has_legs_now_that_trump_is_gone_145830.html#!

As longtime readers know, I’ve repeatedly cited this kneejerk media anti-Trump bias, in which everything Trump said had to be contradicted, nit-picked, distorted and branded as a “LIE,” even if he just said, “Good morning.” If Trump said he’d seen intelligence suggesting that the virus might have escaped from the Wuhan lab, then the media had no choice but to deny it in the strongest possible terms, even if it meant, to quote PJ Media’s Stephen Kruiser:

“…the American mainstream media was willing to take at face value any claims made by agents of the Chinese Communist Party, all the while rejecting and denigrating anything that was said by the president of the United States. It was a new low even for that group of professional bottom-dwellers.”

https://pjmedia.com/columns/stephen-kruiser/2021/05/27/the-morning-briefing-democrats-pre-election-lies-are-unraveling-n1450013

Remember, these are the same people who spent over two years giving us breathless updates on Trump’s lies about not colluding with Russia to steal the election, until their one-time hero Robert Mueller announced that he’d found no evidence of Trump colluding with Russia to steal the election. It makes you wonder how many other things they claimed were lies and conspiracy theories were actually just things Trump said, so true or not, they had to be denounced, denied and destroyed.

Here’s what happens when a "news" outlet foregoes professional journalistic standards in exchange for biased, kneejerk attacks on one political figure to drive him out of office…and it succeeds.

Fun Read

By Mike Huckabee

From health warnings against kissing chickens to a political headline that somehow manages to name-drop J-Lo and Ben Affleck, Brad Slager at Redstate.com presents the latest nominees for his Parody Pulitzer Prizes for Journalism.

Hilarious Metaphor

By Mike Huckabee

Leave it to Sen. John Kennedy to come up with the perfect hilarious metaphor to describe the relationship between the Chinese government and the World Health Organization.

Biden prevents ICE from doing its job

By Mike Huckabee

Leftists who have long demanded the abolishment of ICE, the agency that enforces US immigration laws and deports criminal illegal aliens, have practically gotten their wish thanks to President Biden. He’s so thoroughly blocked ICE from doing its job that deportations are at the lowest level on record, even as illegal entries are skyrocketing (178,622 Border Agent encounters in April alone, with almost none being deported and most just released into the US without even scheduling a court date to determine if they merit asylum.)

https://redstate.com/bonchie/2021/05/25/shocking-new-data-shows-joe-biden-has-practically-abolished-ice-n386473

Despite Biden’s rhetoric and denials and the media’s covering for him, the border is open, it’s a humanitarian and national security disaster, and it is entirely of his own making.

Divine Justice

By Mike Huckabee

Last year, Atlanta City Councilman Antonio Brown voted to cut $73 million from the city’s police budget. Naturally, that was followed by a crime wave that anyone with more brains than a garden slug could have predicted.

Now, the “Defund the Police” proponent is running for Mayor. Wednesday, while he was attending a campaign stop at a ribbon-cutting ceremony, four kids, estimated ages 6 to 12, jumped into his car and stole it in broad daylight at high noon.

https://www.foxnews.com/us/atlanta-defund-the-police-backer-has-car-stolen-by-kids-in-broad-daylight-reports

Brown, who is running on a campaign platform he calls “Reimaging Public Safety,” seemed surprised, saying, "You don’t immediately think, ‘Oh, these kids are going to steal my car.’” Actually, intelligent people might think that, if they knew that some lunatics had slashed the police budget.

At least the voters of Atlanta don’t have to imagine the condition of public safety if Brown becomes Mayor. God just gave them a perfect illustration of it.


Few Americans have ranked climate change very high on the list of things to worry about

By Mike Huckabee

According to the Biden Administration, climate change is the #1 issue that the government must deal with, and they’re willing to spend $93 trillion of our grandkids’ money on a “Green New Deal” to try to stop it.

However, polls have long shown that few Americans rank climate change very high on their lists of things to worry about. And now, a new poll by the Competitive Enterprise Institute shows that while a majority say they are concerned about climate change, it doesn’t weigh heavily in their voting decisions and they aren’t willing to spend anywhere near what liberal Democrats want to spend on it.

https://redstate.com/slee/2021/05/26/poll-americans-would-prefer-not-to-pay-for-climate-change-policies-thanks-n387062

When asked how much they would be willing to spend out of their own pockets to mitigate climate change, 35% said “zero”…not a single buck. Fifteen percent would spend between $1 and $10. Twelve percent would spend $41-$50, 14% would spend $91-$100, and only 1% would spend $1,000. Also, 53% would be somewhat or very unlikely to spend any money to replace their gas-powered car with an electric vehicle.

They’re in for sticker shock, since the price tag of the Green New Deal averages out to $600,000 per US household. I predict that it will be a cold day in July before anyone will voluntarily pay that.


Gas Money

By Mike Huckabee

If you’re planning a driving trip this Memorial Day weekend, better budget some extra money for gas. Triple A reports that the national average for a gallon of regular is now $3.035. That’s 17 cents higher than just last month and $1.12 more than this same time last year. In fact, it’s the highest gas price since 2014. Remember who was in the White House in 2014? That’s right: Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

https://www.westernjournal.com/bidens-energy-policies-making-travel-much-expensive-memorial-day/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=empowerconservatives

And a note to all the liberal media outlets trying to claim that the steep rise in gas prices has nothing to do with Biden’s anti-fossil fuel policies and is simply a cyclical price rise because of the start of summer travel season: this same time last year – indeed, this same time every year since 2014 – was also the start of the summer travel season. What’s different now? Think hard…

Thank God, I live in Texas. I pray that all the people moving here from other states leave their left wing insanity in the state they came from!

    Media, News outlet. I must say humbly,there hasn’t been a news outlet since Obama,BIDEN took office. They were pitiful during Bill&Hillary, especially the ??conspiracy theory Bill didn’t have a sexual relationship with Monica Lewinsky UNTIL HE ADMITTED HE DID. Obama,BIDEN,Hillary administration, MSM stuck their heads SO FAR UP their backside that truth was forbidden in anyway,shape or form. LIED about corruption in IRS,keep your doctor,Hillary using illegal unsecured personal servers,covered up TERRORISM in Benghazi to win an election etc. We need a full staff of Republican Conservative Christian news folks.

    That's exactly the same thing I told a person who had recently moved to Phoenix, AZ. Comment: I've noticed an increase in the speeds on the freeways here since the influx of Californians. Our maximum speed limit should be 65, which is the top speed I have chosen. However, judging by the way most people pass me, it's probably closer to 80-85. I'm not kidding. And motorcyclists go even faster. Plus, there's not a cop in sight.

    I read much about people preferring to collect unemployment instead of taking a job. By contrast, I am proud of my son, Mark, who was laid off of a good paying job, He accepted unemployment for only 2 weeks before taking a job for far less money than he would have if he continued taking unemployment. That's integrity. As a blessing, he has excelled at his new job, much appreciated by his employer and now making more than before.

    There is not climate disaster coming. The earth has always gone in cycles. We have just finished "modern warming cycle" per people who know and devloped cycles . What always follows warming cycle--you guessed it--a cooling cycle. So the earth is not going to get hotter---it is going to get COLDER. You can take that to the bank.

    All the vehicles I've owned in the last 20 years have recommended 87 octane, which is more costly than "regular". Seems to me what the manufacturers recommend should be "regular". Here in Montrose, CO, my definition of regular is $3.35/gallon.
