BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 

 

Surprise Twist

By Mike Huckabee

I told you that President Biden’s executive orders would and should be challenged in the courts, but here’s one I’ll bet you didn’t see coming:

Canada could have a good case for suing to block Biden from canceling the Keystone Pipeline project. And it would hang on the Supreme Court upholding a federal court ruling sought by Democrats to block Trump from canceling Obama’s DACA program that Biden's already reinstated. So if they win the DACA case, they could lose the Keystone Pipeline case. The irony would be as delicious as Southern cooking.

Overlooked Biden memo

By Mike Huckabee

Here’s a look at the Biden presidential memo, similar to an executive order, that was largely overlooked by the media, but that might cause more harm to the economy than all his others. It’s called “Modernizing Regulatory Review.” What it actually does is reverse Trump’s deregulatory policy that unleashed the engine of American economic growth and job creation, as well as a policy going back 25 years that any new government regulations must undergo a cost-benefit analysis.

Under Biden’s new policy, the cost of a new regulation doesn’t really matter, nor does the question of whether it creates enough benefits to offset the costs. What “benefits” can be considered sufficient when imposing new regulations? Anything from “social welfare” to “racial justice” to “human dignity” to his Administration’s favorite anti-American buzzword, “equity.” It’s basically a blank check to federal regulators to heap new rules and regulations on businesses without regard for what they cost or whether they do any good. In short, it’s the left’s dream come true, and a business owner’s nightmare.

New Poll: 46% for Newsom

By Mike Huckabee

In the midst of a growing recall movement, California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s approval rating in a new UC Berkeley poll has plummeted from 64% to 46% in just four months. Under Newsom, the state has shut down businesses and schools, unconstitutionally targeted churches, imposed draconian COVID rules that Newsom was famously caught violating, and left millions of Californians awaiting unemployment payments while paying out $11.4 billion in fraudulent claims.

To quote Instapundit blog master Prof. Glenn Reynolds, what’s astonishing is that his poll numbers aren’t worse. For instance, who are the 43% of Californians who actually approve of how Newsom has dealt with the coronavirus? Did that many people get fraudulent unemployment checks?

What do the media call it when a group of Antifa rioters take over a hotel?

By Mike Huckabee

If a violent protest inside Congress is an unconscionable, treasonous attempt at insurrection and a traumatizing threat to the lives of the people in the building, what do the media call it when a group of Antifa rioters take over a hotel while armed with hatchets, knives and batons; make death threats to the police; and terrify and assault people trapped inside the building?

It’s kind of a trick question since most of them didn't call it anything, since they didn’t bother to report it at all. It happened Sunday at the Red Lion Inn in Olympia, Washington. But give ABC credit, at least they did mention it. Here’s their headline:

“Activists take over Washington hotel to demand housing for homeless during pandemic.”

Somehow, I can’t help suspecting that if they’d been rightwing activists, that headline would've been phrased quite differently, and the word “hatchets” would’ve turned up somewhere.

What do WH Press Secretary Jen Psaki and Congresswoman Omar have in common?

By Mike Huckabee

According to the leftwing Daily Beast, the Biden White House is already probing reporters to see what questions they intend to ask White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.

I bet I could think of a former White House Press Secretary who would have appreciated that sort of courtesy. And she had to field questions that were about 10,000 times more hostile than anything Jen Psaki is likely ever to face, whether she gets them in advance or not.

Speaking of Jen Psaki, some embarrassing old Twitter tweets have surfaced in which she made nasty personal attacks on supporters of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump and actively promoted a divisive, false conspiracy theory about the 2016 election.

Meanwhile, House Republicans want Rep. Ilhan Omar removed from her committee assignments because of her history of promoting vicious anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

Will Psaki and Omar now be banned from Twitter and Facebook? I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for that if I were you.

Accurate assessment

By Mike Huckabee

I’d say this is a quite accurate assessment of the slanderously-misnamed “Lincoln Project,” whose members are infamous for excoriating other people on their alleged moral failings while hiding unconscionable behavior among their own.

“Mark Twain” Star Hal Holbrook Dead at 95

By “Huckabee” pop culture guru Pat Reeder (http://www.facebook.com/hollywoodhifibook)

The personal assistant to Hal Holbrook revealed that the veteran actor died on January 23rd at his home in Beverly Hills at 95. No cause of death was given.

In a career that spanned over six decades, Holbrook played many roles on the stage and in movies and TV, from “The Sopranos” and “Evening Shade” to the Dirty Harry movie “Magnum Force” and Deep Throat in “All The President’s Men.” In 2007, he became the oldest Best Supporting Actor Oscar nominee ever at 81 for “Into The Wild.” As recently as 2017, at age 92, he appeared in “Hawaii 5-0” and “Gray’s Anatomy.”

But by far his most famous role was Mark Twain. Inspired by his college research project, Holbrook started playing the great American humorist onstage in 1957 and became synonymous with Twain for the next 60 years. He developed it into the one-man show “Mark Twain Tonight” that won him a Best Actor Tony in 1966. In 1967, it became a CBS TV special that won him an Emmy. He also recorded two live record albums of Twain material and performed the show all over the world before finally retiring in 2017, long after he no longer needed old age makeup.

Holbrook had memorized so many of Twain’s works that nobody ever knew which ones he was going to perform until he walked out on stage and started talking, so that every show was different. It was another way in which it was just like seeing Twain himself. My wife Laura and I are big Twain fans, and we each saw Hal Holbrook perform different shows before we were married. It remains a cherished memory for both of us.

Holbrook was buried in McLemoresville, Tennessee, alongside his late wife, “Designing Women” star Dixie Carter, who died of cancer in 2010. Despite playing a liberal on the show, she once jokingly referred to herself as “the only Republican in show business.” Rest in peace to them both.

    Worries about Vaccine deaths. No one is sharing much information except underground stuff, and that is scaring me into not wanting to go through with this, for me or my husband - he is a cardiac patient. I hoped it would be administered by our own doctors who know us and our medical history, not some volunteer who is there to administer it at our total risk. Not sure you have any advice on this front Governor. I love reading your newsletter.

    You and your staff are great.
    I am glad to see Sarah running for Governor. She will make a great Governor. Do they use Dominion voting equipment in Arkansas?
    It APPEARS the "People's House" has became the latest federal penitentiary. It is now surrounded by fence topped with razor wire and posted armed guards. There are several inhabitants that should be in prison if it weren't for the 3 tier legal system that exists in the U.S. (1. Democrats law. 2. Republicans law. 3. Citizens law.)

    If anything, that I gained from this election, I have been studying more history of our Country. My take away is the Democrats have tried to ruin our Country for years. All by their failed plans and lack of action. I have been studying the Great Depression. I see a repeat of that magnitude under our new so called saviour Biden. God please help our great Country. Very afraid and placing this in God's hands.

    When football teams are on the wrong end of a rout they sometimes do not go over the tape. What was learned and could and should be learned from the rioting in the various cities. How are people elected that do not have an appreciation for History. People are supposed to learn from history

    Interesting articles.
    Not surprised that perverted lifestyles of many types accepted by MSM and tge many sheeple
    We all know by now of JBs obsession with young girls and up
    It looks like Romans chapter 1 is being played out. God has given mankind up to face the consequences of its sinful behavior.
    Right now an epidemic of Hep C, STDs, 0piod addiction and HIV/AIDs up and down the West Coast. You won't hear about it from MSM and many Christian publications

    Mike
    What is happening in our country is also happening worldwide ... there are NO parties now just collaborators ( traitors) and partisans ( patriots) -- kneel down and submit or stand and fight.
    Also for these sanctimonious nitwit or carp about being Christ like -- if the Church had done as much for the kingdom as Trump has in four we wouldn't have this mess.
    Maybe there was a reason Jesus was kinder to demonics than he was to the Pharisees.

    Sad day for the loss of Mr. Holbrook. I as well saw him perform the Twain persona--I was attending Community College in Ft. Myers, Fla. when he was performed at the Barbara B. mann Performing Arts Hall---I will never forget that performance--
    Ironically, my wife has a slew of uncles/aunts/cousins etc. who all live in McLemoresville--wow.

    I'm not surprised that Gavin Newsom's approval ratings have tanked. I'm surprised they're still as high as 46%. I pray the recall effort is successful.
