DAILY BIBLE VERSE

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28

 


Hypocrisy In Regatta

By Mike Huckabee

Liberal Democrat Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse loves to expound on BLM and other people’s racism on Twitter, but when it comes to his longtime membership in an exclusive, all-white beach club in his home state of Rhode Island, he isn’t quite so woke.

https://www.westernjournal.com/pro-blm-dem-senators-hypocrisy-gets-exposed-confronted-membership-white-club/

When surprised by an interviewer who asked if Bailey’s Beach Club in Newport ever added any non-white members, Whitehouse said no, but “I think the people who are running the place are still working on that. I’m sorry it hasn’t happened yet. It’s a long tradition in Rhode Island, and there are many of them, and I think we just need to work our way through the issues, thank you.”

Whitehouse has been a member of the all-white club for decades, and his wife is even a major shareholder. He’s never quit or used his power and influence to change things. Yet he’s escaped the cancel culture apparently because he’s a prominent Democrat. If you’re one of those, and you say the “right” things (i.e., the left things), you get a pass on actually doing the right thing.

Guy Benson of Townhall.com had a great observation about this on Twitter:

https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/457376/

“(Actress) Ellie Kemper had to issue a groveling apology because she won a pageant crown in 1999 from a group that was segregated decades prior. Sheldon Whitehouse belongs to a club that is *still all-white TODAY* (after promising to quit years ago) & his response is “it’s a tradition.”

Well, so was slavery, and it took Republicans to end that, too.


America Is Waking Up

By Mike Huckabee

It feels as if Americans are slowly awakening from a coma induced by too much CNN (trust me, that can happen), looking around at what the left is doing to their beloved nation, and finally rousing themselves to fight back. Like this black doctor, whose epic takedown of racist Critical Race Theory at an Illinois school board meeting went viral…

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/black-man-trashes-critical-race-theory-in-viral-video-watched-2-million-times/ar-AALbYWW

And as Americans shake off that coma, they’re starting to realize just how much of what they’ve been fed over the past few years by big government, big tech, big media and big business was a big load of bull droppings. Now, we have even more examples.

Remember how all last year, we were told (and some people are still pushing this) that it was necessary to shut down 95% of businesses to stop the spread of the deadly virus. If you objected, you were branded as anti-“science” or as caring more about capitalism than human life.

Many of us argued that the shutdown cure was worse than the disease: it was not only destroying our economy, but countless peoples’ lives and dreams; causing tragic side effects such as delays in needed medical treatment, drug abuse, depression, suicide and loss of schooling; and all for no good reason. Why in the world was it considered “safe” for big stores like Wal-Mart or supermarkets to stay open while small businesses that were willing to follow the exact same safety rules were forced to close?

Well, here’s more proof of just how tragically wrong those policies were:

A new study by USC and the RAND Corporation using data from 43 nations and all 50 states found that lockdown policies not only failed to save lives, they may have had lethal unintended consequences. Nations and states that implemented lockdowns earlier or longer had no lower excess death rates than those that didn’t. However, across all nations, a one-week increase in lockdowns corresponded to 2.7 more excess deaths per 100,000 people.

As for the notion that opponents of lockdowns care more about capitalism than people: first of all, those small businesses represented people, people who had poured their lives, work and all their resources into launching their dream, only to have it crushed by power-mad bureaucrats. We know now that up to 40% of American’s small businesses were destroyed by lockdowns, largely imposed by “progressive” Democrats who love to yammer on about “income inequality” and how it’s unfair that billionaires exist. But while their policies killed the middle class, who did they greatly enrich? The already rich.

https://redstate.com/bonchie/2021/06/21/revelations-of-who-benefited-the-most-from-covid-should-change-the-republican-paradigm-n400473

The Democrats’ endless, heartless lockdown policies robbed American workers of $3.7 trillion in lost earnings, with women and Gen Z workers hardest hit. They also represented a massive transfer of wealth from the middle class to the wealthy, who became nearly $5 trillion richer. Nearly 500 people joined the billionaire class, thanks to the government forcibly shutting down competitors to mega-corporations like Walmart and Amazon.

So when you hear a “progressive” fulminating against a “rigged” system that transfers wealth from the middle class to well-connected billionaires, remind them that they put that system on steroids.

Be sure to read the linked Redstate article because it also includes a much-needed reality check for Republicans who still think that all big businesses should be protected in the name of free markets. Here’s an excerpt:

“…No longer should the GOP knee-jerk defend everyone with a yacht and a private jet as some next level of patriot. Rather, someone who promotes crony capitalism should be treated with the same skepticism and scorn as someone who promotes socialism. Free markets should actually be free, and that includes freedom from the government picking winners and losers at the behest of the mega-rich.

If Republicans want a working-class message that doesn’t actually violate conservative principles, it exists, and it’s just waiting to be embraced. Stop worrying about corporate tax rates for the umpteenth time and start worrying about making the system fair for the full spectrum of those involved, including those who aren’t privileged enough to have their senator’s private number saved in their phone.”

That’s pretty much what I was saying when I first ran for President in 2008. For that, some establishment Republicans accused me of being a socialist. I’m about as much of a socialist as I am a ballet dancer. Let’s hope they’re finally coming out of their comas and waking up to the reality that many of today’s billionaires are more likely to promote socialism than to contribute to the GOP.

By Mike Huckabee

I read a comment from a reader that saddened me, and I'm sure they aren't the only ones this has happened to. Her kids, who are liberals, have cut off communications with their mother and father because they hold conservative political views. I will pray for those kids to see the light, regain their priorities and honor their father and mother.

In the meantime, I hope that the signs of people coming out of their comas, and the truth at last breaking free despite all the barriers put up against it, will result in more people realizing they've been hoodwinked and panicked into unthinkingly embracing false, radical political positions. I hope that realization will lead to them reaching back out to family and friends whom they cut off simply for holding different views. And I pray that they will wake up to the wisdom expressed by Mark Twain, when he wrote:

When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.


The Olympics Are Coming

By Mike Huckabee

The Tokyo Olympics will allow fans into the arenas, but under severe limitations.

https://www.westernjournal.com/tokyo-olympics-set-fans-extreme-limitations/

Still, they won’t be as severely limited as the born-female weightlifters, who can only hope to compete for the silver this year.

https://www.westernjournal.com/transgender-athlete-just-officially-qualified-olympics-first-time-ever/

On the plus side, maybe this will be a good thing. It will shine an international spotlight on the outrageous, ludicrous unfairness of allowing biological males who “identify” as women to compete in women’s sports. This has been one of those stories that’s long circulated in conservative media, but the mainstream media have done a good job of smothering it under a barrage of propaganda about how anyone who believes in biological science is just a transphobe who hates “equality” and wants to prevent trans people from achieving their dreams.

Having the entire world watching as all those women are prevented from achieving the dream they’ve worked for all their lives by someone who obviously has no business being in that competition just might be the big ice bucket of reality that finally shatters the narrative.

And as always, leave it to the Babylon Bee to clarify the issue perfectly:

Another Loss In Court For The Biden Administration

By Mike Huckabee

The Biden Administration chalked up another loss in court, as a federal judge in Florida issued an injunction suspending the CDC’s “extensive, disabling, and exclusive” COVID-19 “sailing orders” that were crushing the cruise industry.

https://www.westernjournal.com/judge-puts-overreaching-cdc-place-victory-cruise-lines-gov-desantis/

I say “another loss” because, while Biden slammed Trump as a “lawless” President, he’s racked up a bigger string of court losses in his first six months than Trump. And remember, liberals challenged everything Trump did and went shopping for the most activist leftwing judges to thwart him – the kind of judges who would rule that they had powers plainly granted to the President by the Constitution, like enforcing immigration laws.

But as Jonathan Turley points out at The Hill, many of Biden’s disruptive policies have been blocked by lower courts or already rejected by the Supreme Court.

https://thehill.com/opinion/judiciary/559247-bidens-bad-run-is-he-doing-worse-in-the-courts-than-trump

Ironically, many of these court losses have been due to the Biden’s Administration actually doing what it falsely accused Trump of doing, like blatantly exceeding the President’s Constitutional powers, engaging in systemic racial discrimination (his programs to help minority-owned restaurants and farms, but not those owned by white people), and “acting arbitrarily and capriciously in carrying out federal policy.”

It’s a good reminder that even though it’s easy to get disheartened by the aggressive attempts to “transform” America through abuse of Presidential and Congressional power, there are three branches of government, and we can still “take the bums to court” and win.

    I TOTALLY AGREE WITH J.F. BIRCH - Manchin is a fake moderate without a backbone and cannot be trusted when it comes to a crunch! There is no moderate Democrat nor moderate Republican. A moderate Democrat would fold when it comes to the decisive moment, he/she will vote siding with Democrats, just like there is no moderate Republican. Unlike the moderate Democrat who stick with his/her Party, a moderate Republican will betray his/her Party and vote the Democrat-way!! Neither of them can be trusted!! I will never vote for anyone who voted to impeach Trump or those voted against certificates going back to its original states for re-evaluation & re-counting thereby accepting the fraudulent results & illegitimate President!

    I can see why nobody wants to be a policeman. When you try to stop a man that is on drugs and you get a long prison, it is not worth it. He was not trying to kill. Yet illegals are doing unreal evil things and nothing is done. Justiceis biased and wrong.

    Dear Mike,
    Thank you for being a voice of sanity for us "deplorables". I empathize with the folks whose children have cut off communications because of differing viewpoints. Some of our adult children think that we are the ones who are misinformed, because their main sources of news are WaPo and The New York Times. We were foolish enough to think we had a choice about taking the vaccine. We continue to evaluate, but for various reasons we don't think the ones currently offered are right for us. One of our daughters has cut us off completely (unfriended on fb, which no one else has ever done to me--nor I to anyone), and says she can't talk to us anymore, since she's convinced I do not love her enough to get vaccinated. I've tried to tell her we love her very much, and have always let her make her own choices without our interference, whether or not we agreed with them. No amount of reasoning will convince her, and we are really shocked that this one thing should have completely destroyed what was once a great relationship. It is a great sorrow to us.

    Manchin can't walk the talk!! Conservatives and moderate Democrats in West Virginia need to wake up to the fact that when push comes to shove, Manchin has no backbone and consistently caves to the powers of the Democrat Party.
    There is no such thing as a moderate Democrat anymore… that illusion has been shattered.
    He talks a great game until someone pushes all in, then he folds like a cheap lawn chair…

    Great newsletter as usual. Yes, America is waking up & I pray we all will continue to fight back at every curve the far left tries to push us. No violence, just our voices loud and clear. Peaceful protesting.
    Harris to the border!! I wish Biden would you use his glasses to read because he squints to read the teleprompter. BTW how big is the text he's reading & still stumbles?

    Your comment about the parents losing communication with their liberal children saddened me. My husband and I have one child, who for a few years has been telling us, "Don't watch FOX" and "What has an illegal immigrant ever done to you?" We chose to not fight the battle. Two of us vote Conservative and cancel out his Liberal vote. That being said, I think he is starting to feel the inflation and shutdown pain, so we have hope.
