DAILY BIBLE VERSE

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

 



Still Defiant In St. Louis

By Mike Huckabee

Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who were facing felony charges for brandishing rifles to warn off protesters who were trespassing on their property and threatening them, agreed to plead guilty to much-lesser misdemeanor charges of fourth-degree assault and second-degree harassment, respectively. They have to pay fines of $750 and $2,000, and relinquish the two rifles, but they will serve no jail time.

Mark McCloskey took it as a victory and remained defiant, saying, “The prosecutor dropped every charge except for alleging that I purposely placed other people in imminent risk of physical injury, right, and I sure as heck did… That’s what the guns were there for and I’d do it again any time the mob approaches me…In other words, I stood out on the porch with my rifle and made them back up. And that’s what I’d do again. If that’s a crime in Missouri, by G** I did it, and I’d do it again.”

As the story notes, many people, including Gov. Mike Parson, don’t think it’s a just settlement, and you can add me to that. The McCloskeys did nothing wrong, and they shouldn’t have to pay a cent in fines, give up their guns or have anything on their records. They merely showed weapons (didn’t fire them or even point them at anyone) to protect themselves from threatening trespassers. They were well within their Second Amendment rights to do so. If anyone should have faced charges, it was the trespassers. But in blue cities, up is now down, left is right, and criminals are let go while citizens and cops are prosecuted. It’s the New Abnormal.

The story says that Gov. Parson is “evaluating the situation.” I don’t know what he can do, since they agreed to take the deal to end the legal harassment. But a good start would be to immediately expunge their misdemeanor criminal records.


A Mixed Bag Of Decisions From The Supreme Court

By Mike Huckabee

Thursday brought a mixed bag of decisions from the Supreme Court. On the plus side, in a surprising unanimous 9-0 decision, the SCOTUS ruled that Philadelphia cannot exclude a Catholic services organization from providing adoption services through its system because their religious beliefs bar them from arranging adoptions for same-sex couples. There are more details at the link. The decision was fairly narrow, and conservatives on the Court thought that there should have been more clarity to clean up the conflicts between previous related decisions and First Amendment rights.

However, for the third time, the SCOTUS rejected an attempt to get rid of Obamacare, this time filed by 18 states. In a 7-2 ruling, the Court said that the states “lack standing” to sue because they suffered no direct harm. “Lack of standing” seems to have become the Court’s go-to excuse for not examining controversial issues that need to be settled.

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/reaganmccarthy/2021/06/17/scotus-n2591129

In a stinging dissent, Justice Alito scolded the Court for its creative efforts to keep pulling reasons out of the air to preserve Obamacare. He noted that if it costs the states $1, then they have standing to sue, but it costs them billions in Medicaid funds, yet they don’t have standing to sue? Alito wrote:

“No one can fail to be impressed by the lengths to which this Court has been willing to go to defend the ACA against all threats. A penalty is a tax. The United States is a State. And 18 States who bear costly burdens under the ACA cannot even get a foot in the door to raise a constitutional challenge. So a tax that does not tax is allowed to stand and support one of the biggest Government programs in our Nation’s history. Fans of judicial inventiveness will applaud once again. But I must respectfully dissent.”

I’ve decided that Obamacare is the Bill and Hillary Clinton of health care legislation. No matter how bad it is or how much trouble it causes, someone in a powerful position will always intervene to protect it, even if it requires twisting the law like a pretzel.


Entire Police Team Quits In Disgust

By Mike Huckabee

You might want to keep the besieged, outnumbered, law-abiding citizens of Portland, Oregon, in your prayers, because the entire police rapid response team that deals with rioters has just quit in disgust.

https://www.westernjournal.com/portland-now-antifas-mercy-entire-riot-control-squad-resigns-disgust/

The police are fed up with the leftist DA and other city officials letting violent rioters run wild or be released without consequences while they prosecute police officers for doing their job. So all 50 volunteer members of the team that deals with disasters both natural and manmade (like Portland’s city government) resigned. They say they will go back to doing their regular duties only, but I wonder how long even that will last. I can’t imagine there’s any cop in Portland who doesn’t have his or her resume out to at least a dozen other cities by now.


Woke Policies Put This Company At Material Risk Of Liability For Unlawful Racial Discrimination

By Mike Huckabee

This is something I hope to see happening a lot more often, and I hope it’s so successful that it inspires many more such actions: a group of Coca-Cola shareholders has sent a letter to the board, warning that their woke, racist “anti-racist” policies are putting the company and the shareholders at material risk of liability for unlawful racial discrimination.

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2021/06/concerned-shareholders-take-action-against-cokes-racist-demands.php

The letter warns that if their concerns are not addressed within 30 business days, “the Stockholders will be forced to seek judicial relief to protect Coke and the Stockholders’ interests in the company from your continued breaches of your fiduciary duties.” Maybe that will remind the board of what their job really is.

And speaking of companies that risk bankruptcy for leftist virtue signaling, Victoria’s Secret has dived headfirst into the empty swimming pool of wokeness. Signaling guilt and shame for ever selling lingerie that was appealing to the “male gaze,” Victoria’s Secret has hired a new spokesperson – outspoken leftist, anti-Trump, lesbian soccer player Megan Rapinoe – who has a history of denouncing the company, everything it stands for and traditionally sexy feminine clothing in general. It’s also replacing its “Victoria’s Secret Angels” models with a group of woke icons, including a trans woman. That gives a new meaning to “Victoria’s Secret.”

The company’s execs claim this will help them “regain relevance” and rebrand for the future. If I had to predict what that new lingerie brand will be called, I’d guess “Chapter 11.”

Who Is The Real Threat?

By Mike Huckabee

Watch former FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi tell (of course) MSNBC that to fight “domestic terrorism,” the feds may have to go after people “around the former President” and even current members of Congress who supported Trump. He said federal law enforcement need to proactively “attack” Congress members who exhibit “cult-like leadership.” Apparently, if you criticize establishment politics and entrenched, corrupt, hyper-politicized, power-abusing bureaucrats, you are “recruiting people to violence.”

https://www.westernjournal.com/former-fbi-assistant-director-arrests-arent-enough-take-people-close-trump-sitting-congressmen-stop-domestic-terrorism/

Well, I criticize those things daily, but I’ve never encouraged anyone to commit violence. Quite the opposite, in fact. Meanwhile, I see people on the other side who are committing violence and terrorizing our cities daily, while Democrats in Congress defend and excuse them. Should the feds attack them? Or does freedom of speech only apply to leftist speech? Guess we know where Mr. Figliuzzi comes down on that question.

This is an eye-opening look into the mindset of those who are trying desperately to criminalize any disagreement with leftist politics and massive, unaccountable federal power. Anyone who expresses such views should never be allowed within a thousand yards of federal power.

That’s why the only good thing about his title of “former FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence” is the word “former.” Turn out in massive numbers to vote for Republicans so we can keep it that way.

Related: Stephen Kruiser of PJ Media has an excellent article on the Democrats’ attempts to convince everyone of their ludicrous fantasy that the biggest terrorist threat to America is patriotic, white Trump voters.

https://pjmedia.com/columns/stephen-kruiser/2021/06/17/enough-with-the-white-boy-domestic-terror-threat-fiction-n1454952

He also makes the very good point that what happened at the Capitol on January 6th wasn’t an “insurrection,” it was a riot. And if rioting is terrorism, then all the BLM and Antifa riots they’ve been excusing for the past year are also terrorism. Since both the number of leftwing riots and rioters vastly outnumber those of the Capitol riot, then aren’t Antifa and BLM a far bigger terrorist threat than Trump voters?

I love Kruiser’s summation: “The biggest threat to freedom right now is a government that’s being run by rabid, un-American ideologues who are using an isolated incident to wage a protracted war against anyone who disagrees with them. That drunk dude with the horns on his hat ain’t the one we need to be worrying about.”


Arson Is Bad

By Mike Huckabee

The left always eats its own, and here’s a sad example. Read the Kafkaesque nightmare that befell a liberal composer of choir music in Nashville whose career was destroyed by the cancel culture mob because, after the George Floyd rioters started committing vandalism and setting fires, he wrote an Instagram post saying that (brace yourselves): Arson is bad.

    A thought to ponder...don't you find it strange that the Supreme Court unanimously supported the Catholic issue and also supported Obamacare? I wonder if there is some bargaining going on amongst the supreme court judges...you give me this and I will give you that! If so, it is reprehensible!!

    Gov, I have fallen prey to hackers on my computer/phone. I have lost about $35,000. Do you know anyone who could help me? I know you may not get into this kind of thing but these people are Godless. Love you as a brother.

    Will you let us know how the Woke Coca-Cola shareholders domains are met from June 19 newsletter?
    "The letter warns that if their concerns are not addressed within 30 business days, “the Stockholders will be forced to seek judicial relief to protect Coke and the Stockholders’ interests in the company from YOUR continued breaches of your fiduciary duties.”
    Thanks for honest news.

    For the McCloskey's:
    They did what any sane Homo-sapiens with two brain cells would do--the "so-called judge" in this case needs to face the same situation -- let's see what he does--you want a perfect example of our busted justice system?? this is it.-----and Ashli Babbet is another tragic example--A military vet, unarmed, wearing a us flag walking around in the capital, and is murdered(in my opinion)--and the perp walks-----Then we have Mr. Floyd--a convicted criminal, a drug addict, and a man who tried to kill a pregnant woman--gets arrested by the police and dies from his own addiction, then is somehow elevated to hero status??????----the system is indeed upside-down.
