Evening Edition - December 30

December 30, 2019 |

Here’s an insightful letter from reader Craig:

Can you imagine the bad precedent –- If both houses were controlled by one party and the Presidency the other, then they could do just exactly this: impeach both the President and the Vice President because they do not like the results of the election and the Speaker of the House becomes President (in this case Nancy Pelosi). How can anyone not realize this is a coup of the executive branch of government by the legislative? This is an attack on the Constitution, our Republic and the American people and our way of life. Horrible !!!!!

From the Gov:

Thanks for writing, Craig. You are correct, and yes, it is indeed horrible. It’s exactly what the founding fathers feared about impeachment. If Chuck Schumer were running the Senate right now, I’m afraid this is exactly what would happen --- or would have already happened. (Result in this case:  Nancy Pelosi would be sworn in as the UNELECTED President, Justice Ginsberg would retire, and the UNELECTED Pelosi would immediately nominate the next justice, whom the Democrat Senate would rubber-stamp.  It would actually constitute a coup against the judiciary as well.)

This is why it’s so important to show this effort to be what it is and smack it down hard, with no negotiation whatsoever. It’s also why we need to keep the Senate and get the House out of Democrat hands, as they would take a machete to the Constitution if it meant they could stay in power.

-----------------------

From the Gov:

I love this reader response to my open letter to Nancy Pelosi:

From Judy:

Brilliant! I’m not sure if she is smart enough to know that you just handed her head to her! Well...bless her heart??

Some comments of mine that you might have missed:

 

Interesting story about how, despite more than $1 billion in spending to eliminate homelessness, Seattle’s homeless problem just keeps getting worse. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that “progressive” officials are spending most of the money on fighting “oppression” and “(interrogating) the current structures of power” in order to “examine the legacies of structural racism in our systems, and co-design a path towards liberation with black, indigenous, brown and other marginalized communities.”

https://www.city-journal.org/seattle-progressive-municipal-employees

Silly me, I would have spent the money on shelters, drug and alcohol programs, mental health care and job placement.  Let’s hope that the next increase in the homeless population comes from those officials being thrown out of office and into the street. 

 

----------------------------------

 

Well, this isn’t at all suspicious: surveillance tape of wealthy and well-connect pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide attempt in a Manhattan jail has somehow gone “missing.” Oh, just to be clear: this isn’t the video that got turned off when he did “kill himself.”  This is the video of his earlier suicide attempt, the first time that he didn’t kill himself.  Oh, sorry, I mean, the first time he TRIED to kill himself…

-------------------------------------

I said that only urgent news would make me interrupt my family holiday before the New Year, but I think it’s urgent that I ask you to please join me in praying for the victims of a string of attacks on Jews in the New York/New Jersey area over the past week, and of Sunday’s shooting at the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas, west of Fort Worth.  In Texas, two people are dead, including the shooter, and one injured.  The latest anti-Semitic attack in the Northeast happened in Monsey, New York, when a man walked into the home of a rabbi and stabbed five people who were celebrating Hanukkah.  This rising tide of anti-Semitic violence has many Jews voicing concerns that it is scarily reminiscent of the days before the Holocaust.

https://www.fox10phoenix.com/news/jewish-leaders-urge-action-after-senseless-hanukkah-attack

Fortunately, Texas recently passed a law allowing concealed carry permit owners to have their weapons in churches, so it did not turn into the kind of mass church shooting we’ve seen before. The service was being live-streamed on the Internet, and less than three seconds elapsed from the first shot to an armed guard stopping the shooter. 

https://pjmedia.com/trending/two-dead-in-texas-church-shooting-highlighting-the-need-for-good-guys-with-guns-in-places-of-worship/

The video also showed several members of the congregation pulling out weapons and pointing them at the shooter, so if the guard hadn't been there, half a dozen "good guys with guns" were. Contrary to predictions, they didn’t start firing wildly and hitting bystanders. They acted responsibly and were prepared to stop the shooter, if need be.  Who knows how many victims there might have been if they’d had to wait 15 minutes for the police to show up?   

But I don’t want to politicize these attacks because there are too many people already cynically and self-servingly doing that.  I’ll talk about some of the responses after New Year’s Day.  In the meantime, let’s concentrate on what’s really important and pray for those who were killed, for the swift and full recovery of the injured, for comfort for their loved ones, and for a miraculous cure to the sickness in the hearts of anyone who would defile a house of worship with violence or assault their fellow human beings just because of their religious faith.

    I have been reading your daily evening editions for a long time now, and love each one. I am a follower of Jesus, as you are, and I love your wisdom but also your sense of humor! Keep it up! I save them all, as I'm always thinking I'll go back to them when I need a little encouragement after seeing/reading the news! I pray for our country every day, and am astounded at the speed at which the country's morality is descending into the pit! Thank you for what you do!

    I'm so glad I started watching Mike Huckabee on the internet. How refreshing to see a decent human being speaking out for President Trump and all his accomplishments. I won't watch the fake news anymore and just hearing these women witches on the Democrat side makes me literally sick. God is working behind the scene to expose and remove all of these demon possessed women. Its unfortunate that there are no men on the Democrat side that will wake up and do what's right for America. They should man up or get out!!!
    God bless you, President Trump and America!!!

    Prior to reading this newsletter, I did not know ABOUT these latest tragedies so I am writing my response through tears so I can let you know that I WILL be uniting my broken heart, in prayer, with yours!

    Mike, with every added tragedy like these l just read about , it "feels like" my heart cannot endure any more heartbreak and that I could die of a broken heart!
    If you DO know me BY name now, you know that most of what I write, in my comments, is authored BY the tears in my heart over these never-ending senseless, tragic loss of lives that are authored by HATRED.......AND THAT.....

    It is AGAINST the backdrop OF these tragic deaths that ARE authored by HATRED that I feel such a righteous rage against the Democrats' HATRED toward their duly elected President from the day he took office!!!!!

    AND....instead of the Democrats looking to join their President....to see what, TOGETHER, they could do PREVENT tragedies like the ones reported in this newsletter....they have used their energies to destroy him!!!!.....WHAT A CONTRAST TO WHAT JOHN DONNE WROTE, when he said: "I'M INVOLVED IN MANKIND, therefore, EVERY man's death diminishes me!" ....

    It is because John Donne's words are so real for me that, I can assure you, one more time, that I WILL be joining you in prayer to our Man of Sorrows Who is also weeping and sharing our grief over these heartwrenching tragic loss of lives!!

    I just want to add that only hours after I wrote this....when I went to bed in the evening...there was a news flash that a thirteen year old girl had been shot, and killed, in front of a mall only hours after a 31year-old young man had also been shot and killed only blocks away!

    Just had to share the video, with a note to followers to watch the "third term" bit if nothing else. Have to say (in my deepest, most manly voice) "Love Ya, Huck!" :) Best wishes for the New Year to you and your amazing family.

    I am grateful to the man who stopped the church shooter as well as the fact that other church members were armed.

    I am also grateful for you, Mr. Huckabee, because you tell the truth. I am so sick of people making up lies about our President and others.

    I was reading Proverbs 10 TPT
    It has lots to say that you could attribute to what the Dems are doing at the moment.
    They just keep stumbling into the mess they created.
    The one who is devious will eventually be exposed
    As l read proverbs it helps me to make clear choices each day. Do l want to have the values of those in Dem Party or do l want to be like Trump and stand up for righteousness the right way of doing things.
    Each day my respect for him deepens I see a man of great strength & calibre who is not afraid to call a spade a spade He hold all the aces because he is a Trump card. and not afraid to use it.
    God bless you too Gov. Huckerbee you are made from equally strong calibre. We are almost living in Bible times when l read the Word it is as though l could put names & places to the world l live in ,

    I'm waiting for the gun control freaks to call for background checks and registration of machetes.

    In addition, a regular old shotgun was used in a church shooting so that should now be considered an assault weapon.

    Finally, I'm waiting for these freaks to acknowledge that additional loss of life was avoided by armed citizens and that includes Biden who would not have allowed these people to defend their own lives as well as that of others.

    So...if Biden became President, and made Obama his VP, and Congress pulled the 25th Amendment on a demented Biden, could Obama become President?

    Governor Huckabee, IMHO, all the stories about the "homeless crisis" are MISSING THE MAIN POINT!!! California's governor stated he wanted Trump to support their "Housing First" initiative. THAT'S THE PROBLEM. HOUSING FIRST DOES NOT WORK! As a former social worker for the homeless, let me tell you, most people have no idea what "Housing First" is, but when I tell them, they are APPALLED that we would waste taxpayer dollars on such programs.
    Here's an example of how Housing First operates: let's look at "Johnny," a crack cocaine addict that has been chronically homeless for years. Previously, Johnny would have been required to go to drug rehab before being housed; Johnny wasn't willing to give up his crack, so he stayed on the street and in shelters. But Housing First says we shouldn't make Johnny give up his habit, instead just housing Johnny and his crack pipe together. When Johnny gets evicted in a couple of months, Housing First just "re-houses" him in another property - and another, and another....and if on his "anniversary date, one year from initially housing him (in spite of the fact that you re-housed him FIVE TIMES), you can report Johnny as a "success story."

    We need to STOP funding programs that don't work. Either you choose to work on the issues that caused you to lose housing to begin with, THEN get housed - or you CHOOSE to remain homeless. It's that simple.

    The men who signed the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE were in fact 'out-laws' Even the news at the time declared them to be 'traitors' to the law. In 1775, the British murdered 72 men who refused to give up their guns. In 1935 Hitler ordered all guns to be registered and permitted...then he took them away and murdered millions. *** LOOK AT WHAT IS HAPPENING TODAY! We must 'refuse' to get 'gun permits' of any kind. It is only government control over our liberties and freedoms. Be an out-law' like the men who fought and died for our freedoms. YOU must sign your own DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE and REFUSE TO SUBMIT to unconstitutional gun laws.. Gun 'laws' and 'permit to carry' are 'infringements' to the 2nd Amendment! "THE RIGHT TO OWN AND CARRY A GUN WITHOUT INFRINGEMENT."

    If the Dems took over the presidency and both houses I would have to find another country in which to live. We would be going down the same path as that of Venezuela. Actually,I don’t know why anyone in his or her right mind would vote for socialism but that is exactly what a Democratic vote would be.
    Socialism has never worked!

    I have thought since this all started that Nancy is doing this so she can be President. If Trump is removed from office the democrats will fire Pence because Trump picked him as vice President.

    Yes, definitely pray for all who were affected by this violence. And just a thought, since knives are now being used in some attacks, perhaps we should have a movement to ban knives since knives are killing people!

    You are right on Governor, as usual. We need more careful scrutiny of person's buying guns and very strict vetting before a permit is issued. I also noticed that President Trump always seems to be blamed for these attacks. I don't remember any other President blamed for everything that goes awry in the US. I hope there are sensible voters who listen to the more conservative tv and radio stations to get another point of view than the media drivel they hear every day. It sure seems that ,despite the "irregularities" pulled by the dimmies these last 3 1/2 years, there are still the tried and true ones that don't care (or know) what President Trump has done for this Country. How sad! Thank you for all You do and may 2020 bring You and Your Family a Very Happy, Healthy New Year.
