DAILY BIBLE VERSE
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Featured Article: Peter Schweizer: Then-VP Biden "direct beneficiary" of Hunter's foreign deals
By Mike Huckabee
Rudy Giuliani has said that when the FBI came to his home with a warrant to search for electronics, he offered them his copy of Hunter Biden’s hard drive and they declined to take it.
Well, the FBI might not have wanted to touch it with a 10-foot pole, but Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) and bestselling author of several books on grift among the political and corporate elite, was very interested to obtain one, and he did. He said Monday on the radio with Sean Hannity that he has determined from Hunter’s emails that then-Vice President Joe Biden was a “direct beneficiary” of Hunter Biden’s financial deals with foreign interests.
First, of course, he had to make sure this copy of the hard drive was the real deal --- that these were Hunter Biden’s genuine emails and not some elaborate fakery. It must have been a tedious job to go through thousands of messages and cross-reference them with Hunter’s Secret Service travel records, but that’s what his staff did.
Reader Comment Of The Day

Mass Protests Continue In Cuba
By Mike Huckabee
Mass protests are continuing in Cuba against the repressive communist regime, but the government is using special forces to crack down on the protesters. Despite the attempted media blackout, there are reports of a growing list of “missing” persons.
Sen. Ted Cruz lambasted President Biden for his weak sauce response and reminded him that he said just the day before that he stands with the Cuban people and their right to peaceful assembly. So what is he going to do about the brutal crackdown?
Former President Trump also stood by the Cuban protesters and urged Biden to put some starch in his spine and do likewise.
Reminder: last April, candidate Biden said he would reverse Trump’s tough-on-Cuban-communism policies and return to Obama’s policy of engagement with the dictatorship. So how’s that working out? We should add this to the ever-growing dumpster fire of Trump policies that Biden reversed, only to have them blow up in his face.
As the world watches, and I hope continues to pray for the safety and success of the Cuban freedom fighters, here is an explanation of why they’re finally turning on the government (and no, it’s not because of COVID, although it is refreshing to hear Democrats finally admit that Cuba doesn’t have the world’s greatest health care system.) These are the words of Cuban freedom activist Marcell Felipe, who says that no matter what the media try to tell you, “The Cuban people have rejected socialism and the socialist regime for the longest time, both in exile, here in Miami, and directly on the islands”:
“The [regime] controls the means of production. The flip side to the government providing everything is that you depend on the government for everything. So they have every means of control and not just with bullets and threats, but with food. If you protest, we take away your food. And part of what we are seeing is that the government’s inability to provide even the most basic foods is now resulting in the people no longer having anything to lose.”
Instead of Critical Race Theory and other anti-American propaganda, those are words that should be taught to every American school child. Maybe then, they'd stop falling into the trap of believing the scurrilous lie that socialism is “fair” and takes care of everyone.
Matt Damon Meets America
By Mike Huckabee
Hollywood ultra-liberal Matt Damon had to play a Trump-supporting oil worker for a new movie, so to do research, he spent some time with Trump-supporting oil workers and discovered (gasp!) they’re actually human beings!
Damon said it was “very different to where I grew up” and “really eye-opening for me.” Sure, they wear blue jeans instead of designer togs and they hold backyard barbecues where they haul out guitars and sing “church songs” instead of Bruce Springsteen dirges about how terrible Ammurikka is, but they were “wonderful to us.” He added, “These guys don’t apologize for who they are.”
Well, I think that’s because honest, hard-working, churchgoing, patriotic Americans who are wonderful to people even if they disagree with their politics have no need to apologize for what they are.
Hollywood liberals who look down on them and constantly insult them when they’ve never even met them, now, THEY might have something to apologize for.
New Survey Data On Critical Race Theory
By Mike Huckabee
When liberals in politics, the media and academia try to gaslight you into thinking opponents of Critical Race Theory in schools are just a fringe of uninformed, racist rightwingers, throw this back in their faces:
Two new Rasmussen Reports surveys found that (A.) by a margin of 43-24%, Americans think teaching CRT will worsen race relations, and (B.) 78% of likely voters believe it’s important for schools to teach traditional Western values. 52% think it’s “very important.” That includes 78% of whites, 74% of black voters and 77% of other minorities. Blacks and other minority voters are also more likely than whites to think most schools don’t do a good job of teaching traditional values. So I'm with the president of the ATF: give them school choice.

Leave The Flag Alone
By Mike Huckabee
Last night, I was on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News, discussing his report that the US Olympic Committee is considering a possible redesign of the American flag for their official documents. It would have fewer stars and stripes than the real flag.
They said it was just early brainstorming, and this was not for the flag that would actually fly at the Olympics. And I get that Olympic designers love dreaming up bad “creative” ideas (anyone remember some of these terrible Olympic mascots? https://reason.com/2012/08/10/the-5-worst-summer-olympic-mascots/)
But let me save the Olympic folks a lot of trouble and grief with just four words: “LEAVE THE FLAG ALONE!” Olympic fans have had to put up with enough from athletes who are going to the Games on the US’s dime to represent the United States, but who have so little appreciation for this nation that they turn their backs or hide their faces when Old Glory flies or the National Anthem plays. They’d show more respect for the anthem of China than for their own nation.
Here are two reminders for them, and for anyone who disrespects the American flag and what it stands for:
1. One of the many great things about this nation is that if you don’t like it, you’re free to leave any time for anyplace you think is better. We have to build walls to keep people out. Only socialist tyrannies have to build walls to keep people in.
2. On that subject, while too many Americans are burning, stomping on and otherwise disrespecting the American flag because they want to turn the US into a socialist tyranny, guess what brave protesters against existing socialist tyrannies in Cuba, Venezuela and Hong Kong are waving? That’s right: the most famous symbol of freedom in history: the American flag.

Roger Kimbell in the Epoch Times recaps and expands on the influential chronology by Darryl Cooper, host of the MartyrMade podcast, of the Deep State/media/social media collusion to destroy the Trump Presidency and everyone who worked for it and supported it.
This is the best response so far to the question of why people believe the so-called “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was rigged. Because for over four years, the people in power in our institutions dropped the masks and made it abundantly clear that they were ruthless liars and abusers of power who would stop at nothing to destroy any threat to their power, and that they could violate every law and every standard of fair play and pay no price for it. So why in the world would anyone believe now that they should be trusted to tell us what’s true and what’s a lie?
