BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 

 

Stop The Presses!

By Mike Huckabee

A judge actually looked at evidence in a vote fraud case stemming from the 2020 presidential election!

Michigan Judge Christopher Murray ruled that Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D, of course) broke state law when she unilaterally issued several orders that altered state election laws. These included sending absentee ballot applications to all registered voters and issuing “guidance” on how to evaluate absentee ballots for legitimacy.

As many Republicans have claimed about several key swing states, this was a case of an official illegally changing election laws that only the legislature has the authority to change. Only in this case, the judge actually let the case come to trial, looked at the evidence and the law, and ruled that the plaintiffs were correct. This legitimizes one of the key claims made by the Trump campaign in its legal challenges to the election.

It should be noted that this case does not substantiate that there was vote fraud or that any illegitimate absentee ballots were counted, only that the process of sending and verifying them was changed by someone who did not have the authority to do so. But considering that out of a possible 7.7 million voters in Michigan, 3.1 million ballots cast were absentee, any illegal loosening of absentee ballot laws should at least raise legitimate questions.

Just don’t ask them on social media, of course. You’ll be called an insurrectionist and told the point is moot.

Filibuster update

By Mike Huckabee

Among the many things I tried to warn voters about before the 2020 election was that if the Senate were tied, Democrats would attempt to do away with the filibuster so they could cram a radical left agenda down America’s throat with just 51 votes. They did that with the “COVID-19” bill that did more to bail out corrupt blue state leaders than it did to fight the virus, but that was passed off as a “budget reconciliation” bill. That trick won’t work for everything, so now, the push is on to eliminate the filibuster.

President Biden is pushing for it. Democrats like Dick Durbin, who previously said it would spell the end of the Senate as the Founders intended it, are now all for it. And “moderate” Sen. Joe Manchin is already wavering under pressure, signaling that he would be open to “weakening” the filibuster, like making Senators who cite it have to keep talking 24/7, which would mean merely delaying the radical bills rather than stopping them.

Republican leader Mitch McConnell was unusually blunt in responding to this latest attempt at a radical left power grab. He warned Democrats that if they “break the Senate,” they can’t even begin to imagine the “scorched earth policy” that Republicans will put them through. He said the partisan gridlock of the Obama and Trump eras will look like “child’s play” compared to what will be unleashed. Mincing no words, he also compared it to a “100-car pile-up.” He’s previously talked about what that would look like, with Republicans using every parliamentary procedure and rule of order in the book to grind the Senate to a dead halt so that nothing could even get out of committee, much less make it to a vote.

It’s certainly not a recipe for effective government, but when the alternative is the kind of high-taxing, budget-blowing, freedom-crushing, government-bloating radicalism we’re seen from the Democrats so far, then gridlock would, indeed, be the best thing for America.

Why I'm actively supporting Gov. Newsom's recall

By Mike Huckabee

California Gov. Gavin Newsom, speaking Monday to Joy Reid on MSNBC, said this: “The principal sponsor of this recall effort wants to put microchips in ‘immigrant aliens.’ We have folks that are literally part of the ‘Three Percent’ militia group, right-wing group, that are part of the principal proponents of this effort...the RNC is the second largest donor to this effort; the HUCKPAC, Mike Huckabee; Newt Gingrich is out there; Devin Nunes; Trump mega-donors have put in close to $3 million in this effort.”

All right, with the gauntlet thrown down, and me and my PAC mentioned specifically, let’s talk about the recall effort against Gov. Newsom.

First, the governor is trying to deflect criticism of his abysmal performance in office by pointing fingers at those who support his recall. Let me just say, if I’m in the company of Newt Gingrich, Devin Nunes and Trump donors who are working to get Gov. Newsom recalled, I’m honored to be a part of that. By lumping in right-wing militia groups, Newsom is trying to make it look as though all his opponents are racists.

And that’s the left’s strategy: No matter how bad things get under their leadership, you have to suck it up and take it, because those racists on the evil right want to “put y’all back in chains,” to quote then-Sen. Joe Biden. This is dishonest, unconscionable race-baiting.

Would you like to know why I’m involved in this effort? One big reason is that a message needs to be sent to arrogant governors who think it’s unsafe in these times to go to church but fine to go to a strip club, and to a governor who orders the public to avoid dining out and to wear a mask but who dines out without a mask.

I take it as a badge of honor to be disliked by a governor who’s so bad, he almost makes Andrew Cuomo look competent. (Wait, I said “almost.”) At last count, the Newsom recall campaign, which needed 1.5 million signatures, had surpassed 2 million. If there are that many white supremacists and racist militia members in California, it makes you wonder why he’d want to be governor of a state like that.

Of course, most of the people who want him gone have nothing to do with racist militia groups. In fact, if we’re going to talk about racism, Californians might want to look at HIS racism, as he also told Reid that he would be choosing an African-American woman to succeed Sen. Dianne Feinstein should she retire. “We have multiple names in mind, and the answer is yes,” he told Reid when asked.

Reportedly in the mix are California Reps. Barbara Lee and Karen Bass, and San Francisco mayor London Breed --- all black, female and far-left.

Newsom later clarified his statement on THE VIEW with host Sunny Hostin --- not in terms of whether he’ll choose an African-American woman (he will) but whether Feinstein would necessarily be resigning. She’s 87, and her term isn’t up until January 2025.

"...I have no expectation that she’ll be stepping aside,” he said. “Quite the contrary. I talk with her quite often. She is as lucid and focused, as committed to the cause of fighting not only for our state as...senior senator in California, but this nation, in her senior status, as someone who has been in the Senate, with great respect across the aisle, as long or longer than most.”

Yes –- in fact, longer than ALL. And I'd say she’s every bit as lucid and focused as the current President of the United States. At the very least.

Anyway, Hostin told Gov. Newsom that many black women “felt slighted” that he had appointed Alex Padilla to fill Kamala Harris’ old Senate seat; Padilla is Latino. Good grief.

Newsom had to defend his choice, saying Padilla will be the first Latino to serve as a U.S. senator from California. “Given the privilege,” he said, “the opportunity to make another, you have my firm commitment that will be truly representative and will make up for that.” In other words, don’t 'recall' me, and I’ll appoint a black woman. Because that’s the most important thing.

Joy Behar asked Newsom about organizers’ claims that over one-third of the signatures are from “Democrats, independents and unaffiliated voters mad that your pandemic policies [are] shutting businesses and schools.” He had a very different take, and I’ll bet you already know what it is. The people backing this are RACIST.“The number one grievance,” he told Reid, “was the browning of California, immigration.”

Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night interviewed Anne Dunsmore, campaign manager for the group Rescue California, and she pointed out that according to a recent poll, 58 percent of Californians want to see Newsom recalled. (Wow, that’s a lot of white supremacist militia members.) Also, she said, 50 percent of their signatories are women, and Newsom is apparently dismissing them. Maybe he just assumes they’re white women.

"He’s managing to alienate pretty much everybody,” she said, “because there isn’t anyone who hasn’t had to deal with the ramifications of his lack of leadership and poor decision-making, except for maybe him."

As this story in CNN points out, in order to fight off a recall, Newsom needs the Democrat base, the “biggest pillar” of which is African-American voters. So that’s what this is really about.

In a hilarious turn of events, just a few weeks ago, 91 percent of teachers voted against Newsom's back-to-school plan, saying it propagated structural racism. How can that be, when he’s the one pointing fingers at everyone who opposes him, calling them racist? Everybody's calling everybody racist.

Aimee Allison, founder of “She The People,” which strives to elect more “women of color," told the HUFFINGTON POST that “regardless of whether Feinstein steps down,” Newsom’s comment “signals a shift in our political landscape. Women of color are the future of the Democratic leadership and no matter what the old guard thinks, we aren’t going anywhere, either.”

The original question was supposed to be, do the voters of California think Gavin Newsom is doing an acceptable job as governor or not? If voters think the quality of life in California will be improved by basing their choice of leaders on race, they are doomed to disappointment and failure. They need to try...TRY...to look beyond skin color and consider the leadership qualities, experience and abilities of all.

And that means Gov. Newsom’s promise to choose a “woman of color” (translation: non-white) to fill Feinstein’s seat should not in the least help him avoid a recall. Just the opposite, as such a promise is itself racist and sexist on its face, discriminating as it does against white women and also against all men. (Note: President Biden has done this as well.) "Anti-racism" is racist, against white people, and if we’re going to call out racism, it has to be consistently done.

For this reason, in addition to all the examples of Gov. Newsom's abominable performance, I’m proud to be helping Californians remove him from office.

Border “Challenge” Update Roundup

By Mike Huckabee

I’m sure it just killed their souls to do it to their pet President, but CBS News reported that the DHS has detained over 13,000 unaccompanied children since Biden took office, with more migrants attempting to cross than at any time in the past 20 years. And they actually called it a “Crisis at the Border.” Not a “challenge,” but a “crisis.” And from CBS! That’s gotta hurt…

Florida’s Attorney General has filed a lawsuit against Biden’s “sanctuary country” orders. It reveals that dangerous illegal immigrant criminals who have been arrested or charged with crimes such as murder, rape and sexual abuse of a child are being released from jail into US communities because Biden ordered ICE not to pursue them.

The Customs and Border Protection agency confirmed to Congress that four people caught trying to cross the Southern border match names of people on the terrorist watch list, three from Yemen and one from Serbia.

The Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas is being turned into a temporary housing facility for as many as 3,000 illegal teenage border crossers for up to three months. Their food, medical care and other costs will be paid by the federal government (i.e., you) until they are reunited with family members or set up with sponsor families.

A South Texas rancher complained that Biden’s open border policy has caused human smugglers to start crashing vehicles right through her fences and using her property as a “dumping ground” for illegal migrants, who are running loose on her ranch. She said she had one such incident under Trump, but it changed overnight when Biden took over, and now she’s besieged with illegal immigrants. Which is weird, since Nancy Pelosi assured us that Biden inherited that problem from Trump.

The mayor of Gila Bend, Arizona, expressed outrage that the federal government informed him that they’re planning to dump an unspecified number of illegal immigrants into his jurisdiction next week and told him, “They’re your problem.” He says the town can barely afford to take care of its own people, who include a lot of seniors, and now the feds expect them to take care of all these illegal migrants who haven’t even been vetted for COVID-19.

In summation, for someone who nags the rest of us about not doing enough to stop the spread of the coronavirus, Biden’s own border policies have become a superspreader event in more ways than one. His excuses and attempts to blame Trump for a crisis of his own making also involve spreading something, but it’s not a virus, it’s manure.

New Podcast

Biden is still hiding as of this week’s publication of The People’s Podcast, which marks his 55th day in office without a press conference, breaking a 100 year record on presidential evasiveness. Here to discuss the president’s Q&A allergy is media watchdog Joe Concha, who ponders the question we’re all thinking: With such kid gloves treatment from the press, what exactly is Uncle Joe so afraid of? Plus, Governor Huckabee weighs in on Andrew Cuomo’s plunge from pandemic prince to pitiless pervert and offers some wisdom to the embattled New Yorker, from one three term Governor to another.

    Racist, racist, racist, that is always the Democrats mantra against anyone who doesn't like them nor agrees with them. Remember, you couldn't disagree with Obama, cuz if you did, you are just a racist. That term is being misused and abused by Democrats and social media so much, that it really desensitizes people to the term racist now. Just like when violence in videos, rap songs, and/or games, etc., it happens so much, that it desensitizes people to the fact that violence and killing isn't shocking anymore. How sad for humans to not be shocked at those things now days.

    It might help the border crisis if CBP would load up the illegals on a bus and send them to DC. Joe wanted them. Let him have them.

    Those same people that stated there was NO FRAUD are coming to the realization that they where taken the the slaughter yard. Now can see that the results already of allowing Joe Biden to win. His Administration is killing jobs, causing a possible second Pandemic, school systems cannot handle all the new illegal migrants coming to their school districts, the costs to the communities. who are struggling to get back on their financial feet and now seeing that there is coming forthcoming massive tax increases. So now the same people who stated there was no fraud are trying to avoid having to be fitted with the those orange jumpsuits along with having to tell their state population, they did this and fear the population taking action voiding the election results, which means that those same judges could be looking losing their jobs and retirement in the process.

    I have said before and I will say it again, put these illegal immigrants on a bus and send them to Pelosi's home in California. Since she lives in a multimillion dollar home se should be able to house a bus load. Since she told the people of the US who were forced to shelter at home because of the pandemic to eat ice cream, she can feed all illegal immigrants some of her $14 a pint ice cream from her two $12000.00 a piece refrigerators. These states who are being over whelmed with these illegal immigrants need to stop sitting on their hands and stand up to what is being forced upon them.

    With all that us happening I fear it will take a tragedy to get the people's attention. The swamp critters are hiding in their DC fortress, totally oblivious and uncaring. The real men and women in the Red states will take the law in their hands. They now see their is no legitimate authority and it's the Wild West again.
    Left wing Hispanic groups wish to retake the SouthWest. La Raza is one example
    Will it take a gun battle.if the gang lords send their armies acriss the border?
    Also it would be nice to have someone from the American Pastor's network. They are starting to moblize people back east. Had a recent meeting with pastors, conservative business people and others to stategize Biblically how we can take back our nation
    I hope you respond to this.

    Every democrat who voted for Biden should be ordered to sponsor at least 1 illegal alien family for the rest of their lives. If you're all in for Biden then you can show your loyalty by doing your part to support these people who were "invited by Joe" to come here for the freebies brought to you by the democrats. So, put your money where your mouth is and step up, suck up, and make Joe (I don't have a mind anymore) proud that you support a president who is incompetent.

    Will everybody stop call the border fiasco a "problem," "issue", just crossing the border etc etc etc. IT IS A INVASION PEOPLE. If this were any other country would we not say we were being "invaded". Lets get serious and call this what it is a DISASTER. We had laws -- these people are breaking our law. What is it about this the American people don't understand? Biden wants us to wear masks (a sick joke) but allows thousands of illegals to invade this country. Are they being issued masks? Would'nt surprise me. Maybe some of the $1.8B is to buy them masks. Our country is in the weeds folks and I don't see anyone with the intestinal fortitude to do anything but talk!

Now it is simply not arriving at all. As shared in the past, I don't know if this is a Cox or McAfee or Outlook issue. But it's definitely a problem that is growing worse. Thankfully, I can at least go online to your website (www.mikehuckabee.com) to read and copy/paste the info to my friends for both the morning and evening editions, but I'm quite annoyed with Cox that your email is no longer arriving.

    Could you tell President Trump, that he has given his loyal supporters false hopes that he will return and help save our Nation. We so believed that he would not abandon us. As the months have passed, he is now advising people to take the untried, unverified, and many reputable doctors claim that the shot (is not a vaccine) is harmful and will be proven so in months to come.
    Have we been deceived?

    Biden and the DIMS' polices...radicalism and racism to the Nth degree...to infinity and beyond. These people seem to just say whatever comes to their minds (or not). If they only knew how to engage their brains before setting mouths in motion, the nation would be much better off.

    People in the towns/cities where illegal immigrants are being released need to raise money to send the immigrants to DC with a letter to Biden and the DIMS that they are now the problem of the Democratic party.

    Thanks so much for keeping us informed. Praying that your efforts to yank Newsome out of office. What a Godsend to have y'all working for us.

    The problem at the border is not just a border problem and never was. I live 4 hours from Carrizo Springs, where a lot of them are entering, and a week or so back, a pickup load of them wreaked and bailed about 10 miles 'as the crow flies' across a few pastures from me. A few years ago, 2 escapees trotted across my yard as the Border Patrol and Sheriffs sirens screamed through town. Luckily they found those two, less than a block from my house. Scary times in our area and we all need help down here as long as this travesty is allowed. Pray for us too <3

    Governor, again I look forward to receiving and enjoy your commentary. About the "scortched earth policy" from Senator McConnell, I certainly hope he is serious but so far I've never seen him stand up tall for anything. I sincerely hope I'm wrong, but I fully expect the Leftists to run shod over the republicans as they have been doing now for several years with the encouragement of the alleged president, the fourth branch of government, the media, and even supported by the SCOTUS.

    If HR 1, the so called "For the People Act,' HR 8, the first step to annihilate the 2nd Amendment and a huge tax increase are railroaded through the senate, we may as well get ready for the USA to become USSA (Ununited Socialist States of America) because our vote will no longer count, we can't defend ourselves under the 2nd Amendment and everything we have and make will belong to the Socialists in control.

    I certainly hope and pray that Senator McConnell is serious about standing his ground. Our future depends upon it.
