BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 

 

Celebrities

By Mike Huckabee

President Biden has yet to offer a coherent reason for killing the Keystone Pipeline project and all the jobs it created, other than “Everything Trump did BAD!” Even the claim that it will help the environment fell apart after a study showed that the oil will still have to be transported to the refineries by diesel trains, so we’ll be adding pollution equivalent to nearly 150,000 cars instead of it flowing through a carbon-neutral pipeline.

But if you think killing the Keystone Pipeline was a dumb idea, hold the phone: Biden is now coming under pressure from Hollywood celebrities to cancel the Dakota Access Pipeline, too. To quote Homer Simpson: “Celebrities! Is there anything they DON’T know?”

How would that affect you? Well, agriculture experts such as the American Farm Bureau say it would force farmers to have to compete for train space with oil companies, which would drive up the cost of transporting food, cost the agriculture industry about a billion dollars a year, lead to farms going bankrupt and farm and food processing jobs disappearing, and increase the cost of food for everyone in America. But we'd be helping the environment by transporting oil on diesel trains instead of letting it flow through a nice clean pipeline.

Maybe those Hollywood celebrities don't care about the cost of food. In the places where they eat, a $500 dinner check may be par for the course. But for most Americans, killing that pipeline would be pointless and disastrous, so I wouldn't be surprised if Biden did it.

President's Day

By Mike Huckabee

Between Valentine’s Day, the impeachment circus and the dangerous weather, President’s Day got sort of shunted aside this year. That’s unfortunate, because we’ve had some Presidents who deserve to be honored. At this link, Toni Williams of the Victory Girls blog provides us with some fascinating history about George Washington and his times. It should be required reading for all the “progressives” who want to rip down his statues and rename schools that are named after him because he was just a white male slave owner.

Ms Williams has unearthed some very interesting history about Washington, his times and his attitude toward slavery. She shows that he was far ahead of his time on this issue, even if he doesn’t live up to todays Twitter mob moral code. It’s ironic that the same people who want to return to censorship and segregation, to roll back the clock to before Americans had First and Second Amendment protections, to revive socialism, witch hunts, public shamings, book burnings and other horrid ideas of the past, are so judgmental of George Washington, a man far ahead of his time, when they are so far behind their own.

Great Philosophical Questions

By Mike Huckabee

If a tree falls in the woods and nobody's around to hear it, does it make a sound? And if a top Democrat tells a blatant, obvious lie and none of the "fact-checkers" who parsed every comma from Trump bothers to correct it, does that make it the truth?

Making A Mockery Of Impeachment

By Mike Huckabee

Roger Kimball at American Greatness refutes the left's sore loser narrative that while Trump was found not guilty, it was not a vindication that he was innocent.

He also lists the seven Republicans who voted (along with ALL the Democrats - nope, nothing political about this impeachment!) Two were a surprise, additions to the five usual suspects who voted with the Democrats that it’s constitutional to impeach a private citizen. They are Sens. Richard Burr of North Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, and oh boy, are they already hearing from the folks back home, who quickly censured them.

But that’s nothing compared to GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger, whose vote for impeachment in the House earned him a heated letter from 11 of his own relatives, calling him a “disappointment to God,” among other things.

All these Republicans claim to be unbothered by all those furious folks back home, which is usually a sign of having been in Washington so long that you think agreeing with the Washington Post is more important than representing your own people. They insist they were standing on principle, which is a noble thing and maybe they’re sincere in that. But in this case, I think their principles are misguided.

Defending the Constitution is pretty high on my list of principles, as I think it should be for all Republicans. This farcical “impeachment” of a President who left office a month ago...built on a false charge that he incited a riot with a speech in which he urged followers to protest peacefully, a riot that we now know was being planned up to two months prior to the speech Democrats blamed it on...following a rushed House impeachment process that was allegedly so urgent, they had no time for any evidence, investigation, defense or due process. And then, Nancy Pelosi proceeded to sit on it for a week and half before sending it to the Senate. And the “trial” there was yet another travesty.

All these things combined make a mockery of the serious, last-resort process of impeachment. It’s as if a potentially dangerous tool that should be handled only by trained adults has fallen into the hands of a posse of drunken teenagers. Impeachment of a President was so grave that it had happened only twice since 1776 up until last year. Now, as one wag pointed out, if you’re 18 months old, you’ve lived through half the impeachments in US history. It’s now been diminished to a cheap political attack tool that will be trotted out every time the White House and Congress are in the hands of opposite parties. And expending so much time and money on it when the nation was facing real crises made both Houses of Congress look like out-of-touch, partisan loons. They think it harmed Trump, but it really tarred themselves.

While I’ve never been a Senator, I have been a juror. And I can assure you that if a prosecutor came into court seeking a drastic punishment, then showed me “evidence” that consisted of emotional appeals, hearsay, old comments lifted out of context that had nothing to do with the case at hand, debunked fake quotes from the defendant, misleadingly edited video and falsified evidence, I don’t think a “not guilty” verdict would violate my principles.

New CA Congresswoman Wants Anti-Trump ‘Truth Commission’

By Mike Huckabee 

Remember when leftists were talking about transitioning out of the Trump administration and into a new world of social justice with a form of the “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” that sought to bring together and re-educate post-apartheid South Africa?

I am not kidding. In fact, we’ve mentioned this before. Well before the election, a number of leftists were talking about this as something they’d like to do, something the country NEEDS to wash the taste of Trumpism out of our mouths. Ostensibly to promote “healing,” this would be a confession of sorts, an opportunity (lucky us!) for former members of Trump’s administration, his supporters, and any others who want to purge their guilt, cast aside their unwokeness and replace their outmoded and shameful racial attitudes of bigotry and white supremacy with a new dedication to social justice, diversity and equity. It would presumably give Americans who supported Trump a way to overcome the threat of “cancelation” by going before a select, Inquisition-like panel, confessing their “sins” and having a conversation about how they can do better.

You’ll be delighted to know this idea is still alive and well, and is enthusiastically espoused by a freshman representative to Congress, Sara Jacobs, who appeared Sunday on CNN with Brian Stelter. Yes, she is from California.

Rep. Jacobs, who was an appointee in Obama’s State Department, knows about this stuff, because, as Stelter said in his introduction, she has studied radical extremism abroad. “Before running for office, she studied ways to prevent and counter violent extremism overseas,” he informed his viewers. And this is important, he observed, as there is cause to fear, as he put it, “a ‘whitelash’ --- a white, Christian America reaction...to a changing country, personified by Trump.” Gosh, it’s only natural for those on the left who want this new “changing country” to draw comparisons between Trump supporters and bigoted South African white separatists. Anyone who can’t see the obvious similarities, well...Rep. Jacobs will be happy to explain.

“So,” she told Stelter, “I think a part of what we’re seeing now is because we haven’t really done the reckoning with the racial injustice and white supremacy of our past that we need to do. And so, you know, a ‘truth commission,’ a lot of people will think of South Africa. We have used them in countries around the world. Basically what it is, it’s the communities, all the way up to the national level, having conversations about both the gory and the glory of our history and what happened both throughout the history of our country and leading up to and on January 6th, so that we can come to a common narrative, moving forward [to] what we want our country to be.”

Got that? We need to come to a “common narrative,” which involves linking the uprising at the Capitol by a relative handful of angry people (urged on by members of leftist antifa mixed in with the crowd) to “the racial injustice and white supremacy of our past.” Because everyone knows those Trump supporters were white supremacists who believe in and want to preserve the social injustices of our past. If they don’t, well, it’s time for some re-education.

As you know, I have strongly condemned the behavior of those demonstrators. Entering the Capitol Building and confronting the Capitol Hill police was a stupid, foolhardy thing to do and it resulted in a woman being shot to death. It also played right into the left’s hands by giving them an excuse to censor conservatives and otherwise clamp down on their civil rights. It made things infinitely worse, tagging all Trump supporters with the absurd label “domestic terrorist.” Thanks, you guys.

At the same time, I understand what they were making such a fuss about. They were protesting for an honest and transparent election process. They truly felt the election was being stolen, and while we don’t have conclusive proof that Trump would have won if all the rules had been followed –- which they weren’t –- the case can certainly be made. Still, that is SURE not the way to make it.

Anyway, now that we have a new administration, many on the left say it’s time to re-educate and reform the unwoke, which means everyone who supported Trump. And a freshman congresswoman from California is ready to help make that happen.

Stelter asked Rep. Jacobs if she thought congressional leaders “have the stomach for” such a commission.

“I think so,” she said. “I think that there are a lot of us who know that this impeachment trial was just the start of holding Donald Trump accountable.” Now that Trump is a private citizen and has been acquitted of impeachment charges --- twice --- I assume she means it’s time to pursue criminal charges against him. Oh, and also against those who worked for him but are now, like him, private citizens, having been cleansed from positions of authority. Sara, with her knowledge of foreign extremism, seems to want America to do things previously associated with banana republics.

Here’s a little more information about Sara Jacobs: At 32, she is the youngest member of the California congressional delegation. She holds a Master of International Affairs degree from Columbia University (big shock there). And, finally, she is the granddaughter of Big Tech billionaire Irwin Jacobs, who founded the wireless technology company Qualcomm. Mr. Jacobs’ wife donated an estimated $1.5 million to a political action committee supporting Sara in her run to represent California’s 53rd Congressional District. Presumably, such ready access to huge campaign funds freed her to continue fighting for justice and wokeness.

If she doesn’t like the way we’re talking about her, maybe she needs to know how it feels to be stereotyped.

The video and full transcript of her CNN interview are at the link.

    ALL DC politicians have forgotten our Constitution, and their Oaths to Defend & Protect it, against All Enemies, Foreign& Domestic! In fact, they themselves have become Enemies of that very Document that they swear in Their Oath to Defend & Protect! The exact reason that we must enact Term Limits , on All of Congress!!!

    When is Biden going to declare a state of emergency for the southern states affected by the deep freeze? Where has FEMA been during this tragic period? Have not seen or heard ANYTHING about any type of federal assistance for the affected Americans! But then again, a lot of red states are involved! Enough said! The South will rise again! Stronger than ever!

    From my observations on the news about the DIMS in DC and their "orders" about schools, churches, lockdowns, mask mandate, covid vaccines, etc. The blue states are the main ones following DC's instructions to the letter! The red states have moved forward with life with some minor, important adjustments. Kids are back in school (both in-person and virtually), a majority of churches are holding worship services, businesses are opened with restaurants opened at limited capacity, masks are being worn, and people are being vaccinated.

    With that said, the DC DIMS basically are controlling the DIMS in the blue states along with fearful Republicans in this nation. Unfortunately, the Republicans living in the blue states have to endure their rhetoric!

    Let them carry on in controlling each other. It keeps them out of everyone else's hair!

    Mr Biden (PinocciJoe) will dance as his Gepetto’s direct. He is not in the picture, his Presidency has never been real. His unelected handlers will force their radical wish list on an unrepresented middle class, who will be required to pay the bill as our Constitutional Republic goes out with a whimper. All we can do is vote and pray. Thanks for being there, Governor Huckabee!

    Dear Governor, you have probably read my thoughts on the particular matter of censure before, and I feel it is important to re-iterate them. While I could not agree more about Democrats cheapening the process of impeachment, I still truly feel that Republicans have now cheapened the process of censure. Yes, I support Trump, no, his first and recent impeachment trials were NOT constitutional, and no, I do not agree with the Republicans who voted for his recent impeachment. Still, I do not believe that the Founding Fathers intended censure to be used as a punishment for disagreement, but rather a tool of rebuke to real abuses of power. Our country was founded on freedom of speech and thought - constant censures over disagreements defies that.

    I will support Republicans in 2022, and am proud to be doing so. However, if there is ANY way that the GOP has become "The Cult of Trump," even in only one way, it is the constant censuring of the voices of disagreement. This is something that I strongly feel needs to be addressed and changed from within. The Lincoln and Reagan-era Republican parties were not about censuring everyone who broke from Lincoln and Reagan. Why should we start now with the Trump-era Republican Party?

    Could it be that the Congressman from MS is opening up a can of worms that he may regret? His suit, if taken up, will prompt the need for evidence from both sides. That means that all those videos of Maxine Waters, AOC, and many others who used words to incite the rioters in Portland, Minneapolis, Louisville and elsewhere, will be used against the left. Trump's lawyers have already proven that the videos they used against Trump were doctored and the truth conveniently went missing. I believe God has and is using, the presidency of Donald Trump to show the people of our nation just how corrupt their state and federal governments are. Lawlessness is being aided and abetted by the left.

    I guess its not surprising the "mouthpiece" for an idiot idea like a "truth commission" would be the idiot child of idiotic CNN, Brian Selters. The only problem with a "truth commission" is that from the top down - from Sleazy Joe and the Bimbo down to the least (and Jacobs has to be among the least in a lot of departments) there is no one who has demonstrated even a nodding acquaintance with the truth. Sleazy Joe started his senatorial career claiming "a drunk driver" had killed his wife and kids, when he knew the driver had not only been cleared of any wrong-doing, but had been praised by the Delaware State Police for his efforts to save Mrs. Biden and the children. (Unless Biden knew something about his wife's condition that has not been made public, there was no drunk driver involved, but that did not stop Joe from making the claim over and over). This inability to recognize the truth when it bites their well padded tuchus seems to be a condition of employment, and having them organize a "truth commission" would like having Adolf Hitler organize the Holocaust Memorial..

    Biden has yet to offer anything coherent, Harris is a mouthpiece for lies and the woke, and the 32 yr old Congresswoman from CA needs to work for the people of CA who elected her, not every other person in other districts of America. If she wishes to "re-educate" (brainwash) others to her point of view, then let's write another Stepford Wife story called Stepford America written by democrats. They really should start with the 94% who don't accept Biden. Good luck with that... but then it started with Lyndon Johnson in 1948 and a certain Ballot box... 73 years ago... nothing new under the sun...

    All this "climate change" nonsense has worked out really well for the Southern states these past few days. Those of us who still have power have been asked to cut down on our usage, both gas and electric, because the gas supply to the various power companies in the Southern states has been cut back by 33%. What wonderful timing! Is this what we can look forward to with the termination of the pipelines? Is this something that was instigated by Biden's handlers as a means of punishment for those who didn't vote for him? Ask the people of Texas how they've enjoyed the latest snowstorm.

    New CA Congresswoman Wants Anti-Trump ‘Truth Commission’ : Welcome to the Bolshevik Revolution, our new normal in Chinese Communist America.

    When is Nancy Pelosi going to impeach Ole Black Joe Biden? He has violated the Constitution by issuing a slew of Executive Orders. Article I, Section I of the U.S. Constitution states that: “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in the Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of representatives.” The president does not have authority to create laws, which is the effect of Executive Orders and Proclamations. You would think Nancy would be all over Joe for usurping her authority!!!!

    I am 78 years old. I am so tired of socialist democrats & their "wokeness". It's too bad they are such INTOLERANT people. Talk about prejudice. They are prejudiced against ANYONE who doesn't agree with them. That is the
    WORST kind of prejudice. It's worse than racial prejudice. It means to hate someone else's mind. I find that DISGUSTING. That's where dictators like "reconditioning" a person, & it sounds like the democrat party is full of "woke" possible dictators. I'll bet Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, & many of our past presidents are turning over in their graves.
