BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 

 

Did COVID-19 escape from a Chinese lab?

By Mike Huckabee

This is a lengthy but important excerpt from a new book about the possible origin of the COVID-19 coronavirus by Josh Rogin.

We were all told it came from a Wuhan wet market, a story that was later quietly abandoned. Anyone who suggested it might have escaped from the nearby virus research lab was accused of spreading “disinformation.” But in a cautionary tale about letting social media techs decide what “truth” is, the “official story” on the virus’ origins is murky and keeps changing. As this book reveals, as far back as 2017, the government was concerned about the dangerous bat viruses being studied in that lab and its lack of ability to handle them safely. The author concludes that because of all the secrecy and Chinese government cover-ups, we may never know the actual origin of the virus, but escape from a lab now hardly seems to be a disproven possibility.

I do take issue, though, with his claim that by calling the disease the “China virus,” Trump was “deliberately blaming Beijing in a racist way.” No more than you’re being prejudiced against Colorado when you use the term “Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.” While we may never know precisely where the virus originated, I’d say it’s a pretty safe bet that we’ve narrowed it down to China.

Reckless Policy Leads To A Crisis

By Mike Huckabee

The number of women making sexual harassment claims against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is now up to five, and fellow Democrat and State Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins says enough is enough, and it’s time for Cuomo to resign.

I would’ve hoped that killing thousands of seniors in nursing homes through an insane COVID-19 policy and lying to cover it up to avoid a DOJ investigation would’ve been enough, but this just adds to the ever-growing pile of reasons why it’s long past time for Cuomo to pack up his Emmy Award and vamoose.

Still, even though Stewart-Cousins has been joined by nearly 50 other New York lawmakers in calling for Cuomo to resign or be impeached, he’s refusing to go and says they’ll have to impeach him.

In light of all this, Andrew Stiles at the Washington Free Beacon does a retrospective review of Cuomo's self-aggrandizing book about how well he handled the COVID-19 crisis (sales have “ground to a near halt,” incidentally) and why, when his deadly arrogance and incompetence were so clear to many of us at the time, the media showered him with praise and only now is turning on him. Hint: Trump was in office then and had to be vilified, but he’s not there anymore so it’s “safe” for them to tell the truth again.

Some good news out of the Supreme Court for a change

By Mike Huckabee

Monday, the Court ruled that Georgia Gwinnett College violated the free speech rights of former student Chike Uzuegbunam when it blocked him from sharing his Christian faith.

When he was a student in 2016, he was told that he had to stop sharing his faith unless he moved to one of two “speech zones” that made up less than 1% of the campus. Even after he did, he was twice threatened with discipline by campus police if he continued. His attorneys argued that the only permit required for free speech in America is the First Amendment, and as I keep trying to remind people, the entire country is a “free speech zone,” or should be.

In an opinion written by Clarence Thomas, the SCOTUS ruled that Uzuegbunam’s rights were violated and he can sue the school for damages. This reversed a lower court decision against him that found (stop me if you’ve heard this) that he didn’t “have standing” to sue for what they did to him because he’s no longer a student. I’m not a lawyer, but that sounds to me like saying I have no standing to sue someone who ran over me with a car because I’m no longer in the hospital.

You may be surprised to learn that the decision was 8-1, supported by Justices across the ideological spectrum. You won’t be surprised to hear that the lone holdout was Chief Justice John Roberts who (again, no surprise) argued that since Uzuegbunam was no longer a student, the case was moot. You know, like since the election is over, whether there was fraud or not is “moot.” He said, “Until now, we have said that federal courts can review the legality of policies and actions only as a necessary incident to resolving real disputes,” and “Today’s decision risks a major expansion of the judicial role.”

I’m no fan of judicial activism, but it’s beginning to seem as if Justice Roberts thinks there’s no such thing as a judicial role at all, including defending the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. If he’s going to consider all cases over disputes that happened in the past to be “moot,” that would eliminate the large majority of cases that make it to court.

"Limited freedoms"

By Mike Huckabee

The CDC and CNN are under fire after CNN reported that the CDC says Americans who have been vaccinated for COVID-19 can now enjoy some “limited freedoms.”

News flash: Americans enjoy virtually unlimited freedoms, including the freedom to tell CNN and the CDC where our freedoms come from and where they can put that “limited freedom” garbage. At the link are some examples of how they did just that.

Must-Read

By Mike Huckabee

Over the past year, Black Lives Matter has raked in an estimated $90 million in donations, but how much of that has gone into actually helping black communities, especially those that were devastated by rioting and looting tied to BLM protests? Eli Steele of Fox News traveled to Ferguson, Missouri, to visit with a black pastor whose community group is struggling to help people overcome the pain, vandalism and lost businesses caused by the violence following George Floyd’s death. Would you be surprised to learn that BLM hasn’t contributed one thin dime to helping his organization or several others?

Must-Read Part II

By Mike Huckabee

Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn on “Five Lessons I Learned When the Deep State Came After Me and My Family.” Not just specific to his case, but very important lessons for us all to remember in an era when conservativism, free speech and freedom of religion are all under attack from the government, the media and social media.

Least Surprising News of the Day

by Mike Huckabee

The average price of gas has leapt to $2.75 a gallon since Biden took office and is expected to go nowhere but up. Hope getting rid of “mean tweets” was worth it.

Note to Teachers From Your Union Officials

By Mike Huckabee

We’re trying to argue that it’s too dangerous for you to go back to work and teach kids, so please try to refrain from posting selfies of yourselves frolicking on spring break.

    Biden is not only showing signs of dementia but he also suffers from the "Peters Principle". I have searched for his accomplishments and it's noteworthy to say he was a Firey Spokesman for other people's ideas when he wasn't plagiarizing ! For the Progressives who have never worked at a real job in their lives, the PP is being elevated at least one level above your compitence.

    The Chinese people in Wuhan were told last year it was the flu when they got sick. Long before the world learned of the virus.

    From what I watched of the Wuhan investigation by Steve Hilton on Fox News, Anthony Fauci poured in a sizable amount of funds into the Wuhan lab for research on bats. He continued to do so even though the Obama administration was against it and stated that it was not to continue.

    Could this be Fauci's joint experiment with China on the world? Could all of the deaths be his responsibility as well as China's?

    Maybe that is why Fauci turned towards the DIMS. He knew they would protect him.

    Corruption seems to be growing at an exponential rate since January 20th! What a dismal group of leaders we have in DC! The Lord needs to intervene quickly!

    I would like to make a few salient observations.
    First of allmost of your links are now blocked. I fortunately go to the same sites using DuckDuck Go a very safe browser
    Also last year the Epoch Times published documents from Red China verifying the CCP virus was created in Wuhan. Also Dr. Fauci's name is on many of the documents. He funded it with money from the NIH!
    As far as the vaccine it is not a real vaccine since people like him and others are saying will still need masks. They also hide the real numbers of people harmed or outright killed by it.
    The N95 masks have a disclaimer that it is not effective against viruses. So we live behind masks forever?
    1984 is now here and the left is using it to destroy the Republic
    It is sad but but Scriptural to so many " believers" defecting l. Here in the Pacific the churches have forsaken God and in until the stormtroopers march in like the CCPhas done.

    Everyone knows the old saying "I may not agree with what you said, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it". I wonder how many on the left can truthfully say that today. I'm a conservative atheist (yes, we do exist), and when I read conservative websites or speak to my conservative friends, I'm bombarded with religious speech and mentions of God. And you know what? Doesn't bother me a bit. I'm glad to live in a country that guarantees everyone to say what they believe and to worship how they want. Not so on the left side. Atheists on the left (and most are) and liberals in general don't support free speech, so you know they would never defend it if it came under fire. That's a big worry to me. If actual true fascism ever makes its way here, half the country would not only refuse to fight it, they'd probably join it. Keep up the fight, Governor.

    The Chinese Communist MO is the Communist Chinese MO. Since the Communist took over China there objective was to destroy the western civilization and FREEDOM and LIBERTY and RELIGION. WESTERN CIVILIZATION is against genocide except when it comes to babies. United States was crazy when we thought we could co-exsist with the Chinese Communist. They are crazy enough to write Communist leaders into the BIBLE

    CDC: Dont trust CDC rules
    TOO flexible
    Moving goalposts too much
    Not Uniform
    Politics
    Games
    like WHO

    & now add illegals coming X with virus.

    Sure relax all those who took vaccines.
    (to date).
    why dont do Both age groups at once for vaccines to reduce waste
    Or use RVs to take vaccines to shut ins at nursing homes, etc.

    More can be done
