DAILY BIBLE VERSE

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

James 3:17


Facebook And The Gospel

By Mike Huckabee

Facebook has started partnering with churches to make the platform a virtual home for religious communities and to help their message and services “go further farther on Facebook.”

https://www.westernjournal.com/facebook-getting-involved-religion-signs-contract-megachurch-platforms-director-global-faith-partnerships-reveals-coming/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

I admit to having mixed feelings about this. Anything that helps spread the Gospel is good. And all their talk about reaching the world with your faith is certainly a tempting apple to dangle. But Facebook has a reputation for getting people dependent on it, and then cutting off, or threatening to cut off, access if they decide your message doesn’t jibe with their Silicon Valley leftist views.

Do you really think they wouldn’t try to tell any church that, for example, held to the Biblical definition of marriage that it was guilty of hate speech or homophobia as an excuse to deplatform it if it didn’t change its beliefs?

So I would warn churches to be very cautious in dealing with Facebook and not let it become a deal with the Devil. Use it to get the word out, organize the church picnic, or share your services with shut-ins. But never let it replace real fellowship in person in the church. Don’t let it erode human interaction, or replace your church socials, newsletters and email lists. Most importantly, never let it become the exclusive channel through which you communicate with the world. Let it be just one of many tools you use, so that if you are suddenly banned, it’s no big deal.

Remember that Mark Zuckerberg seems to think he’s God, and that what Zuckerberg giveth, he can taketh away.


Another look at Kamala Harris, Part 2

By Mike Huckabee

Last week, given the difficulties President Biden was having just getting through an incomprehensible townhall meeting, we took a look at what Vice President Kamala Harris brings to the Oval Office if (when) the 25th Amendment is used to “retire” him. It’s not encouraging news, as you know if you read it.

https://www.mikehuckabee.com/latest-news?id=01A2837A-8710-4A6B-9A96-3021399FE349

Of the many reader responses we received, a couple of them pointed to a report on her that appears in the book PROFILES IN CORRUPTION, by Peter Schweizer. In fact, she’s Chapter 2.

http://www.jack-ass.net/art/pic/pic2a.html

The chapter begins with a story that shows the close connection between Harris and President Obama. She first supported him when he was running for the Senate in Illinois in 2004. Then, after he was elected, he flew to San Francisco to attend a fundraiser to help retire her campaign debt after being elected San Francisco district attorney. In 2007, when Obama announced he was running for President --- SO SOON after winning the Senate --- Kamala and several family members joined his campaign and, as Schweizer described it, worked tirelessly. When Obama won, Kamala was there in Chicago’s Grant Park for the celebration.

As Schweizer wrote, “Harris is widely admired in progressive circles as the ‘female Obama.’ Smooth, polished and confident” –- this was obviously written before that unnerving cackling began –- “she has worked hard to ‘cultivate a celebrity mystique while fiercely guarding her privacy.

What we wrote concerning her early life and Marxist influences is confirmed in Schweizer’s reporting.

And, yes, Harris’ political rise is tied to “one of California’s most corrupt political machines,” namely, the one connected to former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown, Jr. As Schweizer put it, “Kamala Harris’s entre into the corridors of political power largely began with a date.” At the time, he was Speaker of the State Assembly, the second most powerful political figure in California. Brown’s relationship with Harris was well-known; as Schweizer reports, “Their affair was the talk of San Francisco in 1994.” Though he was married, her own mother is quoted as defending the affair: “Why shouldn’t she…?”

Schweizer has detailed the various boards and commissions Brown put her on; these did not require approval from the legislature. These were an extremely lucrative way to pad her salary of $100,000 a year as a county employee. He also bought her a new BMW. But most important of all was the access he gave her to “his vast network of political supporters, donors and sponsors. Soon she was arm in arm with Brown in the most elite circles of San Francisco, including lavish parties and celebrity galas.” And this was before he was even elected mayor.

In fact, it was shortly after Brown became mayor that he and Kamala split up; details aren’t known. She started dating TV talk show host Montel Williams. She and Brown were still political allies, though, and he continued helping her career, through “the most powerful political machine in California,” which he ran.

Kamala went on to head the Career Criminal Unit in San Francisco, and apparently the DA who hired her, Terrence Hallinan, soon regretted his decision. When he didn’t give her a promotion she had wanted, hiring someone else instead, she ended up with Brown’s political machine backing her to run against HIM, and, as Schweizer wrote, “the flow of money directly into her campaign was unlike anything the district attorney’s race had ever seen.” The SAN FRANCISCO WEEKLY said, “She’s hauling in money like there’s no tomorrow.” The San Francisco elite with whom she’d connected while dating Brown forked over the big bucks. Schweizer’s chapter details the various ethical conflicts concerning this money and her use of city employees to do political work.

Harris outspent Hallinan two-to-one and came in second behind him in a three-person race. But in the run-off, she won and was sworn in as San Francisco DA. She took her oath on a copy of the Bill Of Rights rather than the Bible. Given her party’s anti-constitutional proclivities, I doubt the Bill Of Rights was any more honest for her to use than the Bible would have been.

Schweizer’s chapter also tells of Harris’s unimpressive history with the issue of sexual abuse of children by priests. This was a widespread scandal in California. Hallinan, as her predecessor, had uncovered documents going back 40 years, previously sealed by the Church, and had prosecuted numerous cases of child sexual abuse by priests.)

It turns out that according to San Francisco election disclosures, the Catholic Church donated big-time to Kamala Harris’s campaign against Hallinan, though she had no particular ties to the Catholic Church or Catholic organizations. And once she became DA, even though she had prosecuted sex crimes earlier in her career, she oddly moved in the opposite direction of Hallinan and worked to cover up the records. Victims’ groups wanted those records made public and were outraged that she wouldn’t do it.

From 2004 to 2011, when she was San Francisco DA, and then from 2011 to 2016, when she was California attorney general, she never brought a single documented case forward of an allegedly abusive priest.

There’s much more in Schweizer’s chapter about her performance in these jobs, and it is not pretty. He provides numerous examples of her selective enforcement of the law, to benefit friends of her “ex,” Willie Brown, and also of her husband, after she married Los Angeles attorney Doug Emhoff. We’ve also heard from readers in California who told us of her dismal performance there. Recall that when she ran for President, she bowed out even before her own state’s primary. She didn’t win one primary. And yet here she is, virtually destined to be the next President of the United States.

Throughout her career, Kamala has used her associations with powerful people to help her move forward, so it’s not surprising that her closeness to former President Obama would have led her to her current position. Before Biden was nominated in 2020, some had thought Michelle Obama might be the choice. (One of my staffers went on record with that prediction, writing at length about why she believed this would happen.) Certainly if Michelle had wanted it, she would have been the nominee and probably the next President, as the fawning media would have made sure of that. But the Obamas managed to accomplish the same thing, in a way that would still allow Michelle to sit at the beach with friends, sipping exotic drinks with little umbrellas. They did this by putting the woman known as “the female Obama” –- the far-left woman who shared their views in every way but who could never have even made it to her party’s nomination –- on the ticket with “moderate” (ha) Biden, knowing that Biden would never make it through a first term.

At this point, Biden can hardly make it through a town hall meeting.

What the left has done to our country through this scheme will not be forgotten --- or forgiven.

LEAVE ME A COMMENT here>>>, I READ THEM!!!


Our Current Democrat Leaders Summed Up In A Nutshell

By Mike Huckabee

Last year, DC Mayor Murial Bowser used taxpayer funds to paint “BLACK LIVES MATTER” in huge letters on the street near the White House. Last week, when protesters backing the Cuban freedom movement painted a similar message that read “CUBA LIBRE” on the very same street in front of the Cuban Embassy, city crews were ordered to immediately erase the “unauthorized painting.”

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/tyler-o-neil/2021/07/21/d-c-mayor-painted-black-lives-matter-on-the-streets-but-she-erased-cuba-libre-n1463715

I assume the rationale here is that the BLM mural was politically-motivated graffiti that WAS authorized.


Reminder

By Mike Huckabee

In politics, a “gaffe” is when someone slips up and accidentally tells the truth. Like when a co-host on “The View” agreed that it would be great to demand people provide ID before opening social media accounts to keep racists from having a forum.

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2021/07/23/the-views-sunny-hostin-you-should-be-required-to-identify-yourself-before-you-use-social-media-n2592941

Uh…isn’t asking someone to show an ID a form of racism itself? You know, “Jim Crow on steroids?” Also, hate to mention it, but demanding that people show proof of vaccination before being allowed to exercise various rights, another current hot liberal idea, is also demanding a government-issued ID.

President Biden also committed an accidental truth “gaffe” at last week’s CNN Townhall. In response to the White House’s jaw-dropping claim that it’s Republicans who want to defund the police, a reporter asked, “Are there people in the Democratic Party who want to defund the police?” Biden snapped, “Are there people in the Republican Party who think we’re sucking the blood out of kids?”

https://www.commentary.org/noah-rothman/is-joe-biden-calling-defund-democrats-crazy/

As Noah Rothman at Commentary magazine points out at the link, yes, there are a teeny-tiny handful of crazy conspiracy theorists who self-identify as Republicans. And Biden just compared all the Democrat Congress members, mayors, city council members, academics and others who’ve pushed the insane “defund the police” movement to a fringe group of nutjobs. Which, I have to admit, makes a lot of sense.

To be fair, when a Democrat President tells a lie so blatant that even the Washington Post calls him out on it, telling the truth is pretty much his last resort.

NYC Is Just Not The Same

By Mike Huckabee

Don’t wish too hard for a revival of “Friends” because it just wouldn’t be the same. For one thing, since Bill DeBlasio took over as New York City’s mayor, when they’re splashing around in the park fountain during the opening credits, they’d have to dodge armed robbers and floating bodies.

Classes To Skip

By Mike Huckabee

School kids in the UK are taking advantage of a trick that uses soda or orange juice to get a false positive on a COVID-19 LFT (lateral flow test) and skip class.

https://www.westernjournal.com/kids-discover-covid-tests-detect-virus-drops-soda-immediately-use-newfound-knowledge/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

Thanks to COVID, I am stunned to discover that kids in the UK actually have classes to skip.

    Any church leadership that thinks Zuck is on the up and up for churches is, I have no doubt, sadly mistaken. That hook will come with lots of regrettable conditions. Don't do it, just on principle. (You have heard of the apostacy in the last days, right?)

    DC home of the Nations Capital is run by a scumbag low IQ mayor, NYC the same type of mayor it reminds me that I need to be a good person while here on this planet when I leave this world their is NO escape from where these people will reside that would be unbearable beyond any hardship they place on people today, that are above ground and still alive. The devil has got them luxury here on earth however all the makeup, the drugs, and all the hate they may have today; a Huge price will have to be paid when their last breath is taken they are taking the chance for a few moments of bliss here and the devil will have residency for them when their time is done here, making life miserable for so many. PS do these people know about God?

    In my opinion, DO NOT EXPECT Harris to become the President
    of the United States in the end. If you stop and look carefully
    and really open your eyes and listen to the drumbeats in the
    air. You will discover, she is going to find she and her allies
    on the LEFT(AOC, SANDERS and others) are playing to a empty
    audience. Go back to the 2020 National Election, when the
    Democrats told the DNC, they where taken to te slaughter
    house and also gave hints that JOE DID NOT WIN. You can
    already hear in the talking from the Democrats, that back in
    their home districts are now having BUYERS REMORSE.

    So get out your POPCORN, SODA, CRACKERS AND BEER due
    at the same time you are getting this warning signals from
    Janet Yellen about the she needs the National Deficit Amount
    increased prior to 31 July 2021. At the same time you
    have Schumer and Pelosi and Biden all wanting to spend
    more money. The real problem is the money going into the
    Treasury does not cover the daily interest payments needed
    to avoid defaulting.

    I enjoyed the Hot Spring National Park photo. My wife and I stayed in Hot Springs one night a decade ago. We were en route to Texas, and took a quick tour of Hope before continuing the journey. Part of that journey was a visit to the Alamo. According to many generations of family oral history, Thomas Redd Miller, a Texas resident and long-time friend of David Crockett, is a relative of mine. Miller was one of the Alamo defenders. My wife, who is a naturalized American citizen from France, devoured every bit of written information at the Alamo. I was so proud of her! But getting back to the subject of Hot Springs, Arkansas, I thought it was a very nice small town. It's too bad we didn't have time to visit the national park. It's over 1,400 miles away from home. Maybe one day?

    Is anyone really surprised by "anything" Kamala Harris. She is more corrupt than the bunch of them. And the people voted for this.....I seriously doubt it.

    Vaccine flops:
    Vaccine flops are due to:

    o Lying by Fauci & others
    o rigged numbers
    o censorship
    o deny MD types to differ on vaccines etc.
    o Misinformation
    o Disinformation
    o Chinese cover up on virus alone
    o Hear one media side vs other side.
    o Dems cant debate issues

    & IT lays on the Dems, Biden & allies.
    They seeded this since 3-20
    Its ON Them.

    End Result:
    No vaccines taken
    Fear of vaccines more
    Total underclass new developed
    Migrants NOT vaccinated for virus X US Mex border
    Ammo to Non Vaxxers.
    Vaccine deaths made public

    Now what U do if your NOT vaccinated.
