BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 

 

Here’s why politicians should remember when they’re wearing microphones

By Mike Huckabee

Last week, Rep. Steve Cohen and other House Judiciary Committee Democrats were overheard ridiculing Rep. Matt Gaetz’s proposal to say the Pledge of Allegiance before hearings. Cohen mocked people who have flags at their homes and say the Pledge. There were also some snarky comments about people who get on their knees and pray. Funny, I’d suggest Rep. Cohen do a lot more of that.

Democrats’ New Definition of “Terrorist”

By Mike Huckabee

Anyone who voted for Trump or who expresses doubts about the 2020 election: “Terrorists.”

Members of Yemen’s Iran-backed militia: “Not terrorists.”

This Is Only Fair

By Mike Huckabee

I mentioned last week that if Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is to be stripped of her committee assignments, then it’s only fair that Democrats be held to the same standard. So thanks to Matt Margois at PJ Media for compiling a list of them.

Shocking

By Mike Huckabee

Wait, you mean teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg is just a public face taking marching orders from shadowy adult manipulators? Color me shocked…

Interesting Read

By Mike Huckabee

The BookwormRoom blog has a couple of provocative observations about leftist thought processes. Bonus points: Two great quotes about socialism from Winston Churchill. No wonder Biden removed his bust from the Oval Office.

More "Fact-checking"

By Mike Huckabee

Recently, I wrote about how it is hard to determine the exact facts of what happened during the Capitol violence on January 6th, so I wasn’t going to jump on the bandwagon of bashing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's claims, despite the apparent inconsistencies and suspect motives in her story. Luckily for her, none of those things matter to the “fact-checkers” at Snopes.com, who leapt to her defense and branded the criticism of her as “mostly wrong.”

Read that analysis of Snopes’ “analysis” and see if you don’t agree that Snopes’ “fact-checker” is mostly wrong about her definition of what a “fact” is.

Time to rein in out-of-control, censorious social media companies

By Mike Huckabee

Columnist Roger Simon eloquently echoes my plea to all Republican-run states to join Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and rein in out-of-control, censorious social media companies on the state level. He even quotes a few of the same stats that I did about how many states Republicans completely control (24) and how many Americans they represent (nearly 186 million.) That ain’t hay.

Simon also urges politicians in those states not to be swayed by contributions from Google, Twitter, et. al. They certainly don’t owe their offices to those platforms, which are only giving them money to keep them quiet while they continue working to destroy all conservatives, politically and personally. It’s a fatally flawed strategy to keep giving your friends to the bear in hopes it will eat you last.

That’s a premium article at the Epoch Times. If you’re not a subscriber, Instapundit has a lengthy excerpt here.

A Victims List

By Mike Huckabee

Thanks to Instapundit for pointing out this shocking website that keeps a running tally of the victims of “cancel culture” and the thought crimes for which they’ve seen their jobs, lives and reputations destroyed. Some of them are so ludicrous, they make the Salem Witch Trials look like models of judicial restraint.

Note especially the cases where people were ruined because their critics misunderstood what they said (like going ballistic over the use of a Chinese word because it sort of sounds like the “N-word”), but rather than admitting their own mistake, demanded that their groundless emotional meltdown be indulged.

And check out this rationale for a novelist receiving physical threats and having her book tour canceled by her publisher: she dared to write a novel about two migrants when she’s white, so she committed the cardinal sin of writing about “something other than her own lived experience.”

So novelists can only write about things that actually happened, and to them personally? We’re going to have to burn every novel ever written. In fact, “novel” and “fiction” might become the next “N-word” and “F-word” to be banned completely.

    Dear Mr. Huckabee,
    I am a conservative and I missed Tuesday evening's news report from you. Besides listening to Rush Limbaugh and his fill in speaker I enjoy reading your news reports. Please keep them coming. Thank you. Sincerely, Beth Mitchell

    The comment by Kenneth Mc Glothlen (sic) is something that needs to be emphasized. Of course the impeachment was a sham. We all know, the Democrats know and the Rinos know, there was NO evidence and NO chance of conviction.. They did it anyway and threw such loud tantrums about it. Of course it was to change everyone's focus, from the election.

    I read the article on Florida governors laws. In it was written that Republican legislators on the state level is a higher number than Democratic. This is very heartening news. It also means to me that America is more Conservative and Republican than liberal, when it comes to basic Americans. I think we need to be reminded of this all the time, to remember, we are not alone. Liberals are certainly louder and make their presence known. I think I would rather be me than one of them no matter who gets the most attention,

    Social media suppliers are a virus on the citizens of the world. Don't believe me? Try, and I say "try" to divorce yourself from Facebook,Twitter, Amazon, Google, etc. Not even radiation treatments will remove these malignant growths. Stop using them even for one month might make them itch, but they will just treat us like a mosquitoes. AND, as in cancer treatment, only surgery will slow the growth. The only cure is to introduce an "Anti Social Media virus. One that has a cure before it is even released. Sounds like what happened during WWII with the code breakers. “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”

    Hi Mike,

    I was reading Nancy Pelosi's letter that she wants to start a 9/11 Style- Commission to get the facts on the January 6th riot. She stated in the letter on Presidents Day that it was George Washington and Abraham Lincoln's birthdays and that George Washington was a patriot and Abraham Lincoln was the savior of the country! Why didnt she say those words to the country so that BLM could here them and maybe our statues would not have been torn down like the cities?

    1-6 Comm more:
    Guesstimate: someone made call to someone in House or Senate about pending riot NOT those in actual chambers for voting that day BUT elsewhere or day before
    Then why enter Cap Hill to easy & No Cap Hill police?
    Possible?
    Someone in leadership vs Joe, Jane Cong & Senator

    Pending 1-6 Comm:

    Will it cover both sides
    More " politics" by RINOs & Dems?
    Really copy 9/11 Comm?
    See evidence from all sides
    Even from "impeachment trial"
    Or waste more money & games
    OR be serious
    Revenge plot against we Trump voters +??
    Yet Antifa walks free?

    The people that push global warming, climate change are a one side of a coin people. Those people use the MSM to tell one side of the story and forget to tell people solar, wind, water, source power has it limits. Al Gore a politician thats all he is this man forgot that the world has a day and a night this man forgot the planet has different seasons summer winter spring and a fall with each season brings different weather in places above the equator, in the northern part of this country, lakes, river freeze to ice ;in the portion of the country where the 4 seasons are present the days where the sun shines differs by as much as 5 to 6 hours a day depending of the season, as for the wind the wind mills did not operate at 9 above zero how will they operate at 25 below zero? how does frozen rivers generate turbines when water does not move, the sun moves to a different hemisphere leaving a hemisphere without solar for 5 to 6 hours a day. Al Gore, that leaves a longer period of darkness and with out solar power Does anyone think Al thought this tru so many pieces Al forgot or doesn't know should any one that needs energy ever listen to him? If y live or operate off the Grid alternate energy sources can be beneficial to use as constant source of energy is life threatening, economically a disadvantage and as
    just shown how unreliable keep natural gas your go to energy source until you can assure people weather man be counted on to produce all the energy it needs California how was your summer without air condition how did your electricity produce the energy the people needed for your hospitals, elderly homes , and homes and business in general how did you rate your electrical grid.

    Heard on Fox news about the people in Texas who are sleeping in their cars because they have no power. The "green energy" wind mills or whatever they are called are frozen solid. For those who are so concerned about protecting the environment, not counting all the people who are suffering from these wind mills not working, what about all the birds that are killed from the "green energy". AOC is a joke and I fail to see how she was elected in the first place. I bet the people in Texas will switch back to fossil fuels as soon as they can. I believe the good Lord put fossil fuels here for our use. I wonder how many homes of our elected employees (like AOC) are powered by wind. Of course being the "wind bag" she is, maybe that powers her home.

    To reign in Big Tech:
    ALL Red States should unite on:
    More taxes owed
    Fines
    OK protests.
    Devalue Co. stock?
    ID Big Tech offices in state if any?
    Name names.
    ALL Red States alone.
    Shake up Big Tech alone

    Here's a couple questions for you:
    Among the Woke Technology Nerds who decide what information is right or wrong and what we are allowed to see and hear, how many are over age 30? In addition how many of them are not U.S. citizens? How many are naturalized citizens?
    I know the Silicone Valley gang employs a number of foreign born.

    Governor,
    I have been simmering over an issue for more than a month now, and I would like your take on it. When the Jan 6 "riot" started, I was watching and immediately picked up on something that has never been brought up once, that it was at the exact time that the Senate was to begin bringing in their objections, and presenting the "evidence" no one would look at. That stopped the proceeding in its tracks. I told (yelled) my wife that it was rigged at that moment. Now that we know it was planned weeks in advance, it is obvious, and yet not one person has ever brought that up. The timing was exact.

    Is there some way we could get that out to the public? I have no public voice, so I'll ask you if it is possible.

    Thank you for your input. I always appreciate reading the Huckabee reports.

    There will never be another fair election until mail in voting and dominion machines are outlawed. Also voter id is required and trump is named president. The people of this country will not be cheated out of an election. I won't waste my time voting till the 2020 election is set straight and the vote is fair. That is not taking my ball and going home, just fact.

  • Robert Wells

    As a retired law enforcement officer with 21 years service, I see two burning questions related to the Jan 6 event that need to be answered. I think to two may even be related.

    1) Who shot and killed Air Force veteran Ashlii Babbitt? Five weeks later and the answer has only been “a Capitol police officer.”

    2) What was the cause of death of Capitol police officer Sicknick? Again, five weeks later and no answer.

    Is it possible (not wishing to cast dispersions) that Officer Sicknick shot Babbitt and then went back to his office and killed himself??

    Willing to discuss this theory further. (850) 814-5807.

    "I mentioned last week that if Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is to be stripped of her committee assignments, then it’s only fair that Democrats be held to the same standard"

    That is HILARIOUS!!! The jackasses KNOW you rinos don't have the balls to stand up to them. THAT is the problem you rinos have with "we the people" You spew the same old rhetoric out of your pie holes and do NOTHING to back it up. And you wonder WHY we are fed up with the rino party??? BUT I don't expect you rinos to wake up because you are as corrupt as the jackasses. Only difference is the jackasses keep getting away with their BS because they know you rinos will do NOTHING to stop them. And then YOU have the nerve to blame us??? THAT is really funny!!!

    We keep hearing that it was Trump supporters who attacked Congress on 1/6. HOW DO WE KNOW? Do we have specific names? Have we tracked their specific prior movements? How many actually walked down from the rally and stormed Congress?
