DAILY BIBLE VERSE
Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.
How are the left-wing media controlling the news?
By Mike Huckabee
A reader wrote in to ask, “How are the Democrats/left controlling social media and news? I truly don’t understand how this is happening and would appreciate your thoughts.”
It did seem to happen almost overnight, didn’t it? It was as if all the chess pieces were in place to take over most popular methods of communication. But this has been at work in media for a long time, just as it has been on college campuses and in corporations that suddenly appear “woke,” arranged by people who want nothing less than to control us all. They plan to take down this country and establish what they want. They’re focused like a laser beam, and they’re well on their way to doing this.
It is 100 percent about power: they think that they, as the “virtuous,” the socially aware, are going to be on the winning side and get all the favors while the other half of the country, the “deplorables,” will be at their mercy. That, to them, is “justice.” The “reckoning.” And in order to stop this unraveling and repair the damage we first have to know what their mechanisms are.
Coincidentally, FOX NEWS weekend host Pete Hegseth was on LIFE, LIBERTY & LEVIN on Sunday to talk with Mark about the imminent threat. Levin has a new book called AMERICAN MARXISM, in which he writes, “Our challenge today is just as crucial and urgent [as it was in Revolutionary days], and in many ways, more complicated. We did not ask for this confrontation, but it is here. And, in truth, like the early days of the Revolutionary War, we are losing. Unfortunately, most of the country has been caught flat-footed and remains unengaged.”
Your Monday Liberal Narrative Buster
A new Rasmussen survey finds that 53% of Americans say that cracking down on gang activity would be more effective at ending the violent crime wave than restricting legal gun ownership. Only 35% believe the opposite, with 12% not sure.
Maybe Democrat politicians prefer to focus on legal gun owners because it’s so much easier than dealing with actual criminal gangs. For instance, it was recently noted that due to record retirements by police fleeing the hostile liberal political leadership of Chicago, gang members now outnumber cops there by about 117,000 to 13,000, or nearly 10-1.
I wish the social workers who are replacing cops the best of luck in convincing 10 gang members each to hand over their illegal weapons.
Reader Comments Of The Day
"Governor, I first want to say how much of a blessing you are to me in my life especially after I watch your show. But my question is this with all the things you say on your show and all the other conservative news people are talking about how bad this country is going, what the left is really doing how they're taking away this to how they are taking away that. It seems our country is lost to all that but my question is why aren't the conservatives the Patriots and all the others standing up and fighting against this so we don't lose this country. Is our country lost? As a pastor I try to encourage my congregation that God is in control but the way things are happening in the United States it doesn't look like it what do I tell them?" God bless you Brother."
"Governor , I love watching your shows and getting your daily Bible verse. I hear a lot of people saying that the working people who work all day and go home at night to take care of their family don’t get a lot of credit. The thing about that is, we aren’t looking for credit. We only want what we are working for. We don’t want government intruding into our lives and derailing our progress in the family. We are not looking for recognition or praise. We enjoy working for the things we find important, and need less government intrusion. Thank you again for all you do for us. And I’m praying Sarah wins her election."
"Thank you for what you do."

The city of Anaheim, California (which used to be a patriotic, conservative oasis known as the home of Disneyland) canceled an America First rally at a private venue, citing safety concerns. That might have passed the legal smell test, but the city’s spokesman couldn’t resist a little liberal virtue-signaling by adding, “As a city, we respect free speech, but also have a duty to call out speech that does not reflect our city and its values.” That might have opened the door to a big, fat First Amendment violation lawsuit.
The lesson here is that no sentence ends well that starts with, “As a city, we respect free speech, but…”

Saturday night, there was panic inside Nationals Stadium in Washington, DC, during a Nationals-Padres baseball game when shots were heard outside the park. Fortunately, the injuries were few and “non-life-threatening.” The shots were antiseptically described as emanating from “a dispute between individuals in two vehicles.”
As noted at the link, the Mayor and other officials quickly resorted to “progressive” politics and blamed “gun violence,” as if two guns were firing at each other and pulling their own triggers, rather than what it actually was. It was caused by people who have no respect for life or the law, who live in a city that’s been governed for decades by liberal Democrats (the last Republican DC Mayor left office in 1910) who’ve made it clear they also have no respect for those things.

Iran is having a public dust-up with the Biden Administration. Iran claims the White House is reneging on a secret, closed-door deal for a prisoner swap unless it’s tied to a resumption of talks to resuscitate Obama’s Iran nuclear deal. A State Department spokesman called the claim “outrageous.”
Who to believe, Iran or our own White House? Ordinarily, I’d say that’s a no-brainer. But this particular White House has acted so brainlessly when it comes to the Iran nuclear deal, I’ll leave it to you to decide.

Democrats Try To Keep Elder Off The Ballot
By Mike Huckabee
Republican author/talk show host Larry Elder filed to be one of the challengers to California Gov. Gavin Newsom in his recall election and quickly became a frontrunner. But when the Secretary of State released the preliminary list of candidates, Elder’s name wasn’t on it.
There are accusations of “shenanigans” and last-minute law changes being used to block Elder from the ballot. He was invited to sue if he thinks it’s not right.
So just to get it clear: to Democrats, asking someone to show an ID before voting is a return to the Jim Crow days of trying to prevent black people from having political representation. But using “shenanigans” and arbitrary enforcement of last-minute changes to arcane rules to keep a black candidate off the ballot is not.
Be Careful What You Wish For
By Mike Huckabee
The president of the International Olympic Committee, Thomas Bach, reaffirmed that Laurel Hubbard will be allowed to compete in the women’s weightlifting competition, despite having “transitioned to being female” just six years ago at age 35.
Apparently, the rules (a word he repeats so many times, he must think it’s a magic talisman) say this is perfectly proper because Hubbard’s testosterone level is beneath the limit – and of course, having all that male testosterone through three-and-a-half decades of physical development couldn’t possibly have afforded “her” an unfair advantage.
However, from all the verbal tap-dancing around the word “rules” and Bach’s admission that said rules might get a second look later on, I think it may finally be dawning on the virtue-signaling IOC members just how outrageously unfair this is, and how monumentally bad it’s going to look on international TV. I did try to warn the transgender activists that they should be careful what they demand with this one because if they got it, it might shine the world's biggest spotlight on the outrageous unfairness of their position.
