BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY
Democrats' Surefire Remedy
By Mike Huckabee
Today’s leftists are like Granny Clampett from “The Beverly Hillbillies.” No matter what ails you, from a cold to rheumatism, she had a surefire remedy. It was always the same noxious brew, concocted from possum guts, white lightning and superstition. Except it didn’t really cure anything, and it usually left people feeling sicker than before they took it.
So it is with today’s left. They have a surefire useless nostrum for everything. Every social problem can be fixed by creating more government programs. Low grades and juvenile delinquency can be fixed by giving failing schools more money. In fact, every social and economic problem can be fixed by throwing money at it. Racism can be cured by blaming all of the world’s ills on white people. And all crimes can be prevented by making it harder for law-abiding citizens to obtain guns.
Sunday’s horrific mass shooting at a Boulder, Colorado, supermarket that left 10 people dead presented those on the left with two chances to apply their one-size-fits-all “solutions.” Before knowing one thing about the shooter’s identity, motives or the races of his victims, and instead of waiting for more information or simply praying for the victims, they leapt to the conclusion that he must be a white male racist and probably a Trump voter and tried to politicize a mass murder.
That giant leap for leftkind included a number of prominent people, even Vice President Kamala Harris’ “social influencer” niece, Meena Harris, who tweeted that "violent white men are the greatest terrorist threat to our country."
That racist tweet and others were quickly deleted after it was reported that the shooter was Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa. He’s a Muslim and it’s not clear where he’s from, but the DA said he’s spent most of his life in the US. All ten of his victims were white. Schoolmates described Alissa as short-tempered, unstable and paranoid; a “good kid” who would go crazy when he got mad, one time threatening to kill everybody after he lost a wrestling match. A teammate said, "Nobody believed him. We were just all kind of freaked out by it, but nobody did anything about it." He also wrote Facebook posts criticizing Trump.
(Instapundit has an excellent round-up of some of these quickly-deleted racist “anti-racist” tweets, including a collage of mugshots of all the mass shooters of 2019, showing that not only are they of no particular race, but a couple of them were women.)
Predictably, when the “blame racist white male Trump voters” narrative collapsed, leftists immediately and unapologetically pivoted to “blame the gun” and started calling for more gun control laws, with President Biden and Hollywood celebrities leading the charge.
Again, just as they keep retrying socialism in hopes it will work this time, the Democrats want to revive the “assault weapons ban” that was allowed to expire in 2004 after it was found to have virtually no effect on gun violence.
As that story notes, more people are killed with clubs or bare fists every year in the US than with AR-15 rifles. Most of the places with the highest levels of gun violence also have the most restrictive gun control laws. Without a criminal record, no background check would have stopped Alissa from getting a gun. If he really wanted to do something like this, no laws would have prevented him from getting a gun; they just would have prevented other people from being able to protect themselves from him. Like this…
But here we are again. Instead of waiting to find out the facts, the left isn’t letting a crisis, no matter how tragic, go to waste when they can politicize it to revive an agenda that’s failed over and over again.
By Mike Huckabee
Not surprisingly, one of many leftists who immediately jumped to the wrong conclusion to try to make the Boulder shooting about race and “white supremacy” was Rep. Ilhan Omar.
She doubled down on the racist disinformation by referring to a debunked story by leftist “journalist” Aaron Rupar of Vox.com, who got an Atlanta police officer suspended and publicly vilified by falsely accusing him of brushing off the Atlanta massage parlor shooter’s crime as him just “having a bad day.” In fact, the unedited video showed that Cherokee County Sheriff's Capt. Jay Baker was merely repeating what the suspect told officers.
For Rupar, it seems that promoting a cherished "racist cop" narrative is more important than getting the facts straight, or not destroying the life of an innocent public servant, or not handing our enemies a propaganda tool to use against America. You can see at this link from Instapundit how the official Chinese news agency used Rupar’s false narrative to slam Americans as racists.
If nothing else, it proves something I’ve long suspected: China’s communist party leaders read Vox.
Inside the Crisis
By Mike Huckabee
After Project Veritas obtained photos inside the jam-packed border detention facilities for unaccompanied minors (or as that was called under Trump when they were much less crowded, “kids in cages”), the Biden White House finally released some photos to the media, which had been blocked from seeing the crisis for themselves. They were assured it wasn’t a crisis, it was a “challenge,” and then a “circumstance.”
But the Epoch Times got an exclusive interview with an anonymous border agent who described what it’s like inside, and “crisis” is putting it mildly.
Sample quotes: “Any diseases that are in there, it’s being kept in there, like a petri dish. The smell is overwhelming.”
“We’re getting them out of here as quickly as possible, but we are so overwhelmed right now. It used to be easy to get them out in 72 hours. Not anymore. They’re staying here for 10, 12 days. It’s horrible.”
“Everybody that shows up here—even if it’s a 3-year-old kid with no one around—they all have an address on them. And they’ll give it to you: ‘Here’s my address; this is where you are sending me. And that’s what we do. This is the way we are being played.”
“We’re dealing with a different culture who’s not afraid to send all their kids under the age of five, knowing they’re going to get raped, knowing they’re going to get killed. You talk to the adults or the teenagers and they’ll tell you, ‘They raped three or four girls, and they kicked them off the trains.’ They’re going to die.”
“There’s no end in sight. The people that we’re apprehending are warning us of the larger caravans that are on their way.”
And whose fault is all this? He said it’s due to Biden’s reversal of Trump’s policies, “One hundred and ten percent. They were already ready before Biden was even in office. They knew that the doors were going to be open. And now we’ve got a point where we cannot stop it.”
Needless to say, read the whole article. But be prepared to get very angry. And if you slammed Trump over that “kids in cages” narrative, but you don’t get furious over this, then please don’t lie to me that the lives of children are more important to you than politics.
THIS is Racist
By Mike Huckabee
I can’t believe I actually have to tell a university history professor and failed California Democrat Congressional candidate how incredibly racist it is to send an icon of a KKK hood to a black conservative commentator on Twitter. He claims he was trying to make the point that she was promoting “white supremacist arguments” by stating accurate crime statistics.
Fortunately, I don’t have to tell him how racist he is, because his would-be target, the wonderful Candace Owens, told him in no uncertain terms. Her grandfather dealt with the real Democratic institution known as the KKK, so there is no way she would be intimidated by some jerk throwing around Klan hood cartoons on Twitter.

I enjoy your newsletter immensely. It is well thought out. I don’t feel I’m being tutored but just given the facts for me to make my own conclusion. I feel like an intelligent well informed adult.

Mike! I cannot let this pass! Genesis1:3 is to Bidens 1:1 "and now let the Darkness Return."
Dear Bruce Vanderhoef: Head in the sand is NOT a solution and is what brought this Republic to the brink of Disintegration! Take two Tylenol for the headache and get back to us when we become Venezuela, Peru, Cuba where Socialism, aka PROGRESSIVISM, has taken over. It will not be worth being PAIN-FREE!

Democrats' Surefire Remedy: Grannie’s brew did cure the blues by causing people to laugh. Only fools and idiots will laugh at the joke that is the Marxist-Democrats.
Well, hells bells, Nancy told me I was a Terrorist because I am ex-military and now the African Vice-President tells me I am a Terrorist because I am white!!! All of this just goes to verify how demented these chunks of human feces really are.
I am part Irish – the hated slaves sent to the U.S. by England, I am part Hebrew (Jewish for those who do not understand all of this) – the primary target of the Holocaust, and God forbid – I have Confederate ancestors! I am in a real bucket of crap. But I am NOT a Marxist-Democrat!!!!! Maybe God will forgive me.
Wrong Conclusion: Jumping to conclusions is what Marxist-Democrats do. Please show me ONE Marxist-Democrat who cares about the truth. - - I will not hold my breath while I wait for you to find one.
Inside the Crisis: See, Marxist-Democrats can not tell the truth. They could not recognize the truth if it took a big bite out of their backsides.
THIS is Racist: Hee, Hee, Haa, Haa – getting louder all the time.

After reading the newsletter, which I subscribe to, I felt very sick and was thinking. So far there have been too many things damaging life. There appears to be too many people who are getting hurt in the process. I am sorry to say that I have no answers but will pray to God to help our dear country because HE is the only one that can allieviate what is happening in our country and the world.

MEXICO 101 THE TWO PARTICIPANTS CONTROLLING THE MEXICAN SIDE OF THE BORDER IS THE COYOTES AND DRUG CARTEL. ON ONE STATION I SAW THE MEXICAN SPECIAL FORCES HUNT DOWN THE ONE DRUG CARTEL LEADER AND HELP BRING HIM TO THE UNITED STATES. SO DOES THE MEXICAN PRESIDENT AND THE SPECIAL FORCES AND POLICE HAVE ANY CONTROL AT THE BORDER

I am amazed at the ignorance of my fello Americans
As a child I was aware that know country comes close to usin caring for others. The illegal aliens are from countries where compassion for others is a given. No human rights is respected. The CCP culture goes back 5000 plus years. People were considered expendable or to be absorbed and turned "chinese"
Look at the waste of lives in Middle Eastern and African nations.
It is mere hubris that the racist/ Marxists who control the federal and state governments pointnthe finger at " whitey"
is a day of reckoning coming?

It seems when the American public sees a possible star in government that would defend her the star burns out the Governor of South Dakota caves in the new Supreme court justice and her new side kicks burn out niki haley burns out GOP members RINOS burn out and the taxpayers get to see the shooting star as they deceive the public But not to worry as the trust factor continues, deblasio newsom cuomo gretechen are burning and falling how many members are in government are already burnt? Most of them.

Biden doesn't care about what will happen to America he knows that he will not survive the term of President and with his corrupt past catching up to him he will go down and he will take every bit of America with him. Joe stares into space when a question he is not ready for is asked. Yes I am disgusted with the Deep State that got him elected I am disgusted with the Deep State. It knew Joe was failing and they it will use every minute of Joes time to destroy the Nation. We the people have to hang on till we remove this administration the race is on for Joe to destroy the Nation and the People to save the Nation this is not fantasy this is real. Biden voters you think you have nothing to lose you may not have as much to lose but what you have you will lose sooner or later we all will lose. The fall from a graceful life will be longer and more hurtful than the Biden voter lifestyle in the end we all will suffer.

A lot of focus is directed toward the attack on the 2nd amendment and rightfully so, but there ought to be similar focus on the 4th amendment. The 2nd amendment exists, in part to enforce the 4th. British troops could arrive at your home and commander your cattle, food supplies, your beds and I'm sure, in some cases, your wife. There is a God given right to defend yourself and family. In simple terms, this means that lefty loons cannot pass laws to usurp God and the constitution. Who the hell do they think they are to acquire such authority? Please spread the word to as many people as you can, Mike. This should be in the opinion pages of all print media, however I know that won't happen.

Speaking of assault weapons, it would really be enlightening to see the statistics on gun violence. How many shootings are committed by people who bought their guns legally? And how many murders are committed by those who stole their guns or bought them on the black market? Remember the old adage: "When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns".

Democrats : America's National Socialist Worker’s Party ... Democrat’s likely next steps :
“THE REPRESSION OF gun owners in Brandenburg was by no means unique. On seizing power, the Nazis began the policy of Gleichschaltung, the forcing into line of all institutions in society into a totalitarian system. Every aspect of the state, including industry, labor, education, law, culture, and sports, was to be harnessed to serve the National Socialist state, and every individual was to be subordinated to this goal. Gun owners, gun clubs, gun dealers, gun importers, and gun manufacturers were subjected to Gleichschaltung, if not to outright banning.
"This forcing into line included generally all sporting organizations and in particular the shooting associations, a particularly sensitive topic because their members possessed firearms—which potentially could be used against the regime. Many of them had originated in medieval brotherhoods, and they had played a major role in the democratic revolution of 1848, which had failed in part because the standing armies of the forces of reaction were far better armed than the populace.”

I must respectfully disagree with Kamal Harris's niece. Violent white men are not the greatest danger to our nation. Ditzie democrats of all (73 genders according to UC Berkely) are polluting the airwaves, social media and the country in general with their stupidity. I find that a much worse threat.
03/24/2021 08:23 PM
GUN CONTROL: When Democrats show a commitment to LAW and ORDER and reclaim cities lost to terrorists and looters. Cities like Santa Monica and Portland with new Mayors and Governors.
Democratic sports owners and radical colleges not supporting Marxist BLACK LIVES MATTER and replace with ALL LIVES MATTER. Oh and a replacement of the New York City mayor and New York governor and cities not being judge and awarding settlements before trials and messing with the legal system

Can we win the House and the Senate back? Can we even wait until 2022 before all the damage being done by the Democrats is irreversible? Is America doomed? ??

I asked to receive you morning and evening e/mails. NO MORE. Asking if our President Donald J. Trump should be in prison?????????????????????????

Dear Ms. Owens,
I am so sorry you were subjected to the hood in the message. A few years ago my family and I were driving through a small country town, and came across a large group of KKK people lining both sides of the road, including children, all dressed up in their polyester sheets and clown hats. My reaction was like coming onto a rattle snake and I hate and fear snakes. I am a white so woman, I cannot imagine a Black woman’s, even a very strong one, reaction to be confronted by such a symbolic item. Shame on him. Amazing how evil the virtuous are isn’t it?
03/24/2021 07:42 PM
Has Biden blamed the previous administration for his falling down and tripping on the steps to Air Force one when will Biden blame the higher gas prices on the previous administration or he already blamed the crisis on the border Biden the producer of the blame game and psaki the host of the game all have zero ratings does anyone watch that crap? That briefing should come with a mental health warning it will cause a need for professional mental health appointments

Mike, I'm finding your newsletters so depressing (not you, but the news) that I'm going to have to unsubscribe . If Paul instructs us to "think on things that are pure and lovely, and of good report," which little of the news seems to be now days, it is a bummer to read your newsletter. I don't want to bury my head in the sand, but what good does it good to read stuff that just raises my blood pressure? The election was a sham, the Republicans seem neutered, and if God is on the throne, I just don't understand the evil prevailing today. The Dems have total control and they're not backing off.
