DAILY BIBLE VERSE
3 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
God help us
By Mike Huckabee
People ask me almost daily if I think America will survive the divisive, leftist-driven assault on traditional American virtues of freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and free enterprise that once made our nation the envy of the world. I still have hope, but must admit that I’m believing more and more that the only hope is an intervention of God Himself in the form of a deep to the bone spiritual awakening. Just this week, we’ve seen multiple signs of a nation that has gone astray from its ideals and principles.
Reports that Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley colluded with the Communist Chinese Military in the closing days of the Trump Presidency to assure them he would give them a head’s up should President Trump prepare to start a war and that he instructed his subordinates to ignore orders from the President unless they had been cleared by him are shocking, if true. I say “if true” because they come from a new book from Bob Woodward, who is known to fudge the truth and sometimes just flat-out make it up in order to push his book sales. But Milley has already proven to be an incompetent politically driven General by his failed leadership in the Afghanistan withdrawal and his bizarre testimony to Congress that the biggest threat to America is white rage, whatever that is even supposed to mean. Does he honestly believe that a minuscule number of guys waving Confederate battle flags and armed with deer rifles have a shot at defeating Milley’s military that has F-35’s, F-22’s, tanks, aircraft carriers, Blackhawk helicopters, fully-automatic weapons and even nuclear weapons? If Milley believes his forces are that weak, he really should resign. But if he went around the elected President and the civilian Commander in Chief to place himself above his chain of command, he shouldn’t be allowed to simply resign. He should be court-martialed for treason.
We also witnessed the heart-breaking and gut-wrenching testimony of female US Olympic gymnasts before the Senate who graphically testified as to the humiliating sexual assault by pedophile team doctor, Larry Nassar, who violated the girls trust as well as their bodies for years. We learned that their desperate attempts to get the US Olympic officials to intervene fell to deaf ears, but that even worse, the FBI was fully informed of the criminal acts of Nassar toward these minors and not only covered up the misdeeds, but lied to the girls and did absolutely nothing to stop the sadistic and deviant sexual behavior of the team doctor. As of now, one person at the FBI got fired, but no one has been yet to be charged with having lied about the case or failing to report the assaults to the local authorities. Basically, just as it was with FBI agents lying about President Trump colluding with Russia and using the power of the government to try and bring him down even after he was elected by the people to be President, the FBI and Dept of Justice seemed more concerned about protecting themselves than these young women. It’s beyond disgusting knowing that if you or I break the law, we might have a swarm of FBI agents all over our home at 5 in the morning, breaking in our door and pointing automatic weapons at us and frog-marching us to jail, but if the agents break the law, their higher-ups cover for them and at most let them retire with a pension and become analysts on CNN.
And this week, Nancy Pelosi ordered that we put up another fence around the US Capitol. You know—the same Nancy Pelosi who lives behind a wall but who says walls on the Southern border don’t work—that Nancy Pelosi put up a wall around the nation’s Capitol. Makes me wonder if it’s to keep bad people out like us out or to keep even WORSE people like her IN so they can’t hurt the country any more than they already have! Will our country survive? Only if God helps us…so I say, “God help us!”
New podcast episode
This week on The People’s Podcast, Governor Huckabee sits down with Nancy Grace, host of Crime Stories with Nancy Grace on Fox Nation, to discuss the latest in the disappearance of Gabby Petito.
New polls with twists
By Mike Huckabee
I told you about how subterranean President Biden’s polls are looking. Here’s more with a couple of new twists. The Gallup Poll, which is usually more lenient for Democrats, now shows him with 43% approval, down 13 points since June. And for the first time, a majority, 53%, now disapprove of how he’s doing his job.
Worse for Democrats, their most reliable voting bloc, African-Americans, are also souring on Biden, whether it’s because of the disproportionate effect of Democrat vaccine passports on them or the elevated black jobless rate that was at a record low under Trump.
A new Morning Consult poll shows that Biden’s approval rating among black voters is down to 71%. Still inexplicably high, but Democrats count on 90% support from blacks for their winning margin. Disenchanted African-Americans don’t have to vote Republican, they just have to stay home and skip the midterms to make a big difference. And Biden isn’t giving them any reasons to bother leaving home to vote for more of this. So expect even more phony accusations of racism, even if they have to call black Republicans like Larry Elder "white supremacists."
FDA authorizes some booster shots
By Mike Huckabee
The FDA has authorized Pfizer COVID vaccine booster shots, but not, as the White House wanted, for everybody. They went with the overwhelming recommendation by an FDA panel to offer boosters only to people over 65 and those at high risk of severe infection or who work in high-risk jobs. To see if you fall into any of those categories, click the link.
Less than carefree at the University of Iowa
By Mike Huckabee
Remember those carefree college days, when you felt invincible and sometimes took risks that seem crazy in retrospect, but it’s all part of being young? Well, that’s over.
A group of students at the University of Iowa held a protest rally to demand that the school take even more of their freedom away. As a state agency, the university is not allowed to require masks and vaccination, although they strongly recommend them. Not good enough: the students demanded that the school defy state law and force everyone to vaccinate and mask up. To make their point, they held a “die-in” and pretended to die. I assume they’ve all already been vaccinated, so if vaccines work, I’m not sure why they think they’re going to die if someone else doesn’t wear a mask, but I guess Logic 101 is no longer a required course.
For the record, even before the vaccines were available, their age group’s odds of surviving COVID were between 99.98% and 99.997%. When I went to college, you had less chance than that of surviving Calculus class.
Must-read exchange between Sens. Ted Cruz and Richard Blumenthal
By Mike Huckabee
Blumenthal really wanted to talk about how racist election integrity laws like voter ID are. But then, Cruz hit him with facts showing that they don’t suppress minority registration or turnout, and polls show that 77% of black voters support voter ID. And suddenly…Blumenthal doesn’t want to talk about it anymore.
