BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 


 

The Fight Against Big Tech Grows

By Mike Huckabee

As leftist-run Big Tech companies and the Democrat-run federal government continue to trample Constitutional rights, individual states are increasingly stepping up to fight them. Latest example: Tyler O’Neil at PJ Media reports that Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita is demanding that Amazon explain why it blocked Ryan T. Anderson’s book, “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment,” from being sold on Amazon.

Amazon claimed it doesn’t allow books that call LGBTQ+ issues mental disorders, but this book doesn’t do that. It’s a scholarly and scientific examination of the transgender movement, critical but in no way hateful. Noting that Amazon continues to allow Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” and “The Communist Manifesto” to be sold, Rokita added, “I also ask that you inform me of any statements by Amazon that inform consumers that Amazon makes decisions whether to offer certain products based on considerations of ideology.”

This comes two days after Anderson wrote an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal urging some “enterprising state attorney general” to exercise the authority “to investigate Amazon’s conduct to learn whether the company is abusing its vast market power, doing so in a patently dishonest and deceptive way, or otherwise violating state consumer-protection and antitrust laws.”

So, one state attorney general down, and 49 more to go. How many will Amazon need to hear from before they decide that it’s better to let their customers decide what they want to read?

Why The Grammy Awards Are Dying

By Mike Huckabee

This is a terrific article at American Greatness by musician Tal Bachman about why the Grammy Awards are dying (or more precisely, committing suicide by replacing celebrating musical excellence in all genres with promoting divisive leftist politics, pornographic performances, filthy language and unlistenable “music” from a tiny handful of pop/rap/hip-hop acts.)

Of course, the standard response is to say old fogies are just out of touch with what modern audiences want to see and hear. But the Grammy Awards have relegated almost all other forms of music to the untelevised afternoon ceremony on the pretext that primetime should be reserved for what the most people want to see, yet ratings cratered. They fell 53% from last year to an all-time low, by far. People really don’t want to see this, but they keep giving it to us anyway.

I suspect that many of the younger people they claim they’re appealing to are in their rooms, listening to their new vinyl copies of “Sergeant Pepper” on their Crosley Cruiser turntables.

Eight Women Accuse Cuomo Of Harassment

By Mike Huckabee

The calls for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign are reaching critical mass with an eighth woman coming forward to accuse him of sexual harassment.

President Biden is still reluctant to call on Cuomo to step aside, maybe because of the uncomfortable questions it would raise. Like, “Why him, but not you?”

Meanwhile, Republican Rep. Tom Reed, who is considering challenging Cuomo, is suddenly facing a sexual misconduct allegation, which he denies.

My view on all these is the same, regardless of party: the accusers should be given a respectful hearing and the accused should have the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. It’s due process 101. So by all means, investigate the sexual charges against Cuomo, but let’s not allow them to overshadow the deadly misconduct represented by his COVID-19 nursing home policy and cover-up.

I have a suspicion that some top Democrats who are calling on Cuomo to resign over the sexual allegations are secretly relieved to have some other excuse to get rid of him that won’t raise questions about the other blue state governors who also needlessly boosted COVID death numbers (blamed on Trump, of course) by forcing nursing homes to take in coronavirus patients. That’s a can of worms they’d rather leave unopened.

Tough Climb

By Mike Huckabee

President Biden slipped and fell three times while climbing the steps to Air Force One Friday. It was alarming, but Democrats are trying to brush it off by comparing it to President Gerald Ford tripping and falling on the jet’s steps in 1975. But there are three key differences (check the link for video of both):

1. Ford slipped on slick metal steps in a rainstorm while struggling to hold an umbrella over his wife. Biden tripped and fell on dry, carpeted steps.

2. Ford fell once, popped right up and went on. Biden fell once, then two more times.

3. Ford was ridiculed as a klutz forever after on “Saturday Night Live.” Anyone taking bets on “SNL” mocking Biden? By the way, I’m not saying they should, because this is sad, not funny. I’m just saying that even if it were funny, they’d still tell us it’s not.

As long as we’re looking back on past Presidents walking down ramps, here’s Joe Biden mocking Trump for walking down a slippery ramp slowly and bragging about how nimbly he runs up ramps. This incident sparked all kinds of mainstream media speculation at the time about Trump suffering health problems and why this “actually matters.” Can you imagine what they would’ve said if he’d fallen down three times?

Biden Suspends Or Drops Staffers Who Admitted Marijuana Use

By Mike Huckabee

I’ll bet this is the last thing all those young “progressives” who dreamed of working in the Biden White House expected: dozens of his staffers have been suspended, asked to resign or put in remote work programs over their prior marijuana use.

They revealed their pot use in their background checks, having been told it wouldn’t disqualify them from their positions. But like many voters, they made the fatal mistake of believing Biden’s promises. Even in states that have legalized pot, it’s still illegal on the federal level, so that means they admitted to a crime on their background checks. Bet they don’t think background checks are such a great idea now!

Of course, judging by the policies coming out of this White House, maybe they were suspended for smoking too much pot.

No word yet on whether Kamala Harris, who admitted to using pot during the campaign, will be removed from her job as President…sorry, Vice President…or whether Barack “Choom Gang” Obama will be barred from dropping by.

Critical Race Theory Passes In California

By Mike Huckabee

Despite widespread opposition from parents and serious academics, on Thursday, the California State Board of Education voted unanimously to pass ESMC, the California Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum. That’s the Critical Race Theory curriculum that promotes anti-white racism and anti-Semitism, teaches kids that America is systemically racist and they’re either oppressed or oppressors based on their skin color, and encourages them to become social justice warriors for leftist causes.

While this is currently only “encouraged” for school district adoption, a new bill in the California legislature would make it mandatory for K-12 public schools.

Any California parents who don’t realize what this insidious propaganda is have probably been relying on liberal media outlets for “information” about it. As the Legal Insurrection blog notes at the link, the Los Angeles Times blithely dismissed criticism of it by writing, “Frequently attacked by former President Trump and misinterpreted as creating divisions among groups, critical race theory is seen by ethnic studies practitioners as inseparable from the field, and the board recommended adding a definition to clear up misconceptions about it.”

"Misinterpreted as creating divisions among groups"? Yeah, like that could possibly happen!

Let’s be very clear: if you think that Critical Race Theory is a neo-Marxist concept designed to destroy America by filling children with resentment, guilt and a hatred of their own nation and by turning a once-cohesive society into divided, warring tribes based on skin color, then you’ve interpreted its conception perfectly. It’s legalized child abuse. If Californians have finally wised up enough to recall their Governor, then if they care about their children, they should recall their board of education, too.

In the meantime, if you are a parent with a child going back to public school soon, read this now.

Big Court Win Against NYT

By Mike Huckabee

If you think that countries where people are thrown in jail just for committing thought crimes only exist in other parts of the world, then cast a wary eye northward toward our neighbor, Canada. That’s where a father has just been jailed for contempt of court for referring to his 14-year-old daughter, who identifies as male, as “she” and “her” and his “daughter.”

Not only that, Canadian courts ordered that the…er, offspring (who, again, is 14) receive testosterone injections without obtaining parental consent, and declared that “if either of her parents referred to her using female pronouns or addressed her by her birth name, they would be considered guilty of family violence.”

The father (if I’m still allowed to use gendered terms) responded, “The government has taken over my parental rights. They’re using (the girl) like she’s a guinea pig in an experiment…Is (British Columbia) Children’s Hospital going to be there in five years when she rejects [her male identity]? No they’re not. They don’t care. They want numbers.”

Let’s hope that doesn’t land him in solitary confinement. Again, let me repeat, this is not Iran, China or the Middle East. This is Canada in 2021. I will pray for Canada to once again start identifying as a free nation.

    I am heartbroken at the Biden and Democrat policies, but if I were to see an elderly person fall even once, I would have reached out to help. It was just so strange and puzzling to me that no one on the ground raced up the stairs to help Biden when he fell, not once, but three times. Can you explain that, Governor Huckabee? I think any able bodied person could have been up the stairs in seconds. No one seems to be addressing that. I just think that as human beings, our first instinct is to help. God bless

    Thank you Governor, for all that you do - Blessings to you and your family!

    Serious question: if an underage person were to try to buy alcohol, they would be denied and potentially detained. If an adult applied for a gun permit and submitted credentials of a deceased person, they would be denied and most likely arrested.

    So why are these two examples of fraud, which were verified and indisputable during the 2020 election, allowed to be certified and not overturned?

    Asking for 80 million+ voters who are not going away regarding this blatant theft of our election.

    American Choices for Our Future - Enslaved or Free

    As many Americans claim to be leaders seeking “justice” and reparations for unresolved civil rights abuse which continues to haunt our conscience, why is it that many of these same leaders deliberately encourage, support - and “for the cause of progressive change” - even seek to imitate socialist nations which openly enslave their own people for mutual profiteering in partnerships with American organizations who feign concern but support the “status quo” by claiming they are “engaged” in order to “encourage change”? These culturally corrosive practices continue to be tolerated by a Nation Constitutionally constructed by Founding fathers who, while admitting to their flawed spiritual nature, nevertheless openly sought wisdom and provenance from The God of the Bible in their attempt “to form a more perfect Union that might “uphold truths considered self-evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.—That to secure these rights , Governments are instituted among men, deriving their powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government. Laying its foundation on such principles, organizing its powers in such form, as to them seem most likely to affect their safety and happiness.”

    In light of current events, are we so hard-hearted, rooted in evil ways and complacent in our greedy self -satisfactions that we cannot perceive that a majority (?) of the governed seem willing or have been intimidated to forego the truths once held to be self-evident, and submit to a change in the form of our government from that of a God-centered Republic of free people to an Autocratic Dictatorial Socialist / Communist slave state? Are Americans truly willing to accept such change that is being carried out as we cower in the face of their lying bluster and boasts?

    The once-predominate God fearing body of the governed and their Church leaders/preachers have been warned by the most well-known spiritual heroes of the “Great Awakening”, “Restoration Movements” and Presidents who sought the counsel of God during many perilous times in our history that if we cease to be a nation under God, we will be a nation gone under.
    Therefore, it seems not only prudent but urgent that believers, followers of Jesus Christ together with their spiritual leaders heed the Scriptural message to Solomon written in 2 Chronicles 7:13 -14 : “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land, or send a plague among my people, IF my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
    Only God alone knows the heart of every person and whether that person is truly repentant.

    When we pray the “Lord’s prayer” as taught by Jesus, we ask that “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”; yet, in spite of reading, studying, and receiving sermons about God’s will explained in the Bible, we seem not able to comprehend nor have the courage, strength, integrity or patience to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest Commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.” If we claim to love God, but are not willing to love one-another, then we live a lie – apart from God. Jesus, Son of God was sent to earth to teach the way to serve the will of God and His behavior served as our model as he reached out to show that God loves all, cares for all and saves all who repent. We, His followers are not to judge, condemn or take revenge: “Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written ‘it is mine to avenge; I will repay’, says the Lord. On the contrary:
    ‘If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
    If he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
    In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.’
    Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
    Romans12:17-21
    Believers are told “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of the light (for the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for it is the light that makes everything visible. Ephesians 5:8-1

    America must become wary of comparison to Jesus’ story of a man cleansed of an evil spirit: “When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest but does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left’. When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first.”
    Could America’s modern metaphor reference be the film “Ghostbusters”. Who will we call upon today that may walk softly and carry a big staff to comfort us?

    The United States of America: Abomination or Blessing to the World?
    The Scriptures of Daniel, Matthew and Mark warn people about “end times” when enemies of God will commit abomination that causes desolation by desecrating the Temple of God with idols and sacrifices to other “gods”, rendering it uninhabitable and desolate to God and His people. Examples include the Syrian king Antiochus IV Epiphanes who invaded, destroyed and sacrificed a pig to the Greek god, Zeus at the temple of Jerusalem with abolition of daily sacrifices to remove the worship of God along with oppression and persecution of believers.
    Today, abominations are being perpetrated by self-appointed socialists / communist government authorities who, while attempting to disguise themselves in “sheep’s clothing” and making pretense of worship, are actually enacting laws purposed to restrict or prohibit gatherings for worship by believers. Their influence has affected even the Roman Catholic Church which negotiated to maintain a “presence” in Communist China by agreeing to recognize the nomination of appointed bishops of the Vatican by the Communist Party.

    As the churches of our time are forced to negotiate and compromise Biblical truths to “meet the needs” of an evolving global “culture of equality”, believers should be alert to their perilous condition of becoming “frogs boiled alive” as national temperament is being gradually heated by arguments about every aspect of the American lifestyle: education, healthcare, employment opportunities, choice of energy, “concerns” about global climate change, “fair” taxation, women’s rights, public safety, recreational drugs, decriminalization of offenses, gender neutrality and the role of morality in both public and private affairs.

    If the call of the pulpit cannot be relied upon for God’s truth, wisdom, reason and spiritually effective answers to the American dilemma termed “counter-culture” which champions repudiation of the American Constitution, disregards the blood spilled by millions to purchase our freedom and advocates wholesale sellout to the godless societies of this world, - shall we now accept defeat instead of victory in Christ and be led away in captivity and bondage by the dark forces of deprivation and depravity being heralded by the hounds of hell? What say we to the heroes of history from the “greatest generation” who in their darkest hour rose to prove it their finest hour and overcame their “fear of fear itself”? Do we not truly believe in the power of prayer or understand that a house divided against itself cannot stand? True Americans have far more in common heritage, love for freedom, for one-another and creative capacity for good than any other people of the world. Believers are overcomers – not-conformers to the world – for the benefit of the world. The grand experiment of a Godly inspired government of the People by the People and for the People became the hope of the world and the integrity of our dream must not perish from the face of the earth to satisfy the lust for power by a few traitors and spiritually apostate deceivers.
    This writer is convinced that not a single public servant occupying an office in the seat of our government is devoid of the capacity to choose wisely or reason together within the context of love for the Nation to which he/she has sworn to serve, protect and defend “so help me God.”
    I pray their souls be refreshed and emboldened to discharge their duties faithfully in the eyes of God and their neighbors. Will anyone reach out to them with me to pray and petition God to awaken their senses to whatever good may remain in the sub-conscience of their minds? If only a few were to regain their senses, what seems impossible remains possible, because nothing is impossible with God.


    Personal Perspective
    The reader may ask why I write about such perspectives. I write to share from my past that which I have seen, learned by experience, prayers that have been answered, and circumstances beyond my control which redirected my attention, brought great joy, comforted me during my saddest moments, presented me with unanticipated opportunities, encouraging me to serve others in need, refreshing my soul, breaking the ties that bound me, lifting me up to see beyond the horizon as well as what lay below my feet. In short, I am bound by profound gratitude for amazing grace of salvation - being compelled to declare the power of God to the next generations, His might to all who are to come, and remaining in prayer that everyone I meet may be blessed as I have been blessed. The light that has guided me along my path through this life seems brighter every day. I humbly offer these thoughts which come through my mind as my story and my songs in praise of Him Who has had His eye upon me all along.


    From my youth I have been taught because I was filled with wonder and marveled at the beauty of the earth that lay beneath my feet and the power displayed before my eyes which yielded the fruit that sustained my family as we worked the earth season by season. The garden, forest and rivers transformed rocks to soil filled with life. My thirst for knowledge was expanded by books and caring teachers who instilled the thrill of exploring and expanding my horizons, teaching me how to describe what I saw that others had missed. As I was brought alongside others having different skills but common interests, we worked together to discover and provide energy, benefit and hope for the community of mankind that which has been stored up in the earth to support all life – past, present and future. I believe that the current generations bear great responsibility for maintaining the transparency of unaltered history, providing unlimited opportunity for unbiased education, and paying our own way forward by promoting ingenuity, creativity and critical thinking which considers all available information and perspectives that can help to build up individuals and communities in a morally sustainable civilization where birthright is to be upright, free and unhindered in doing good.


    It may be prudent for all who have ambition for government leadership to consider a few Proverbs of Solomon:
    “When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice;
    When the wicked rule, the people groan.” Proverbs 29:2

    “By justice a king gives a country stability,
    But one who is greedy for bribes tears it down.” Proverbs 29”:4

    “Where there is no revelation, the people castoff restraint;
    But blessed is he who keeps the law.” Proverbs 29:18

    “There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan
    That can succeed against the LORD.” Proverbs 21:30

    Did Russia destroy its nuclear weapons? Why would Biden call a killer like Putin a killer? Russia has a large nuclear arsenal with Biden being a coward and a military misfit as a commander in chief Biden won’t have to destroy America from within Russia will have its way with this far left administration
