BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY 

 

Voters' Remorse

By Mike Huckabee

Sometimes, I get up, look at the news, and there are so many similar stories, it’s almost as if the news had a theme that day. Wednesday’s theme appears to be a predictable one: voters’ remorse.

Here’s a story by a woman who hated Donald Trump so much, she called him the “most dishonest person imaginable.” She even wrote a book to slam him, about how important the truth is, and she worked hard to elect Biden and celebrated his “victory.”

Now, she’s suddenly been slapped with a hard truth. The “PRO Act” bill he’s pushing that just passed the House, and that would take the disastrous California AB5 bill that killed small businesses and the gig economy nationwide, threatens to destroy her career as a freelance writer. She writes, “The bill could end my ability to be my own boss, set my own hours and otherwise live the American worker's dream.”

In short, it’s a shining example of a typical piece of “progressive” legislation. Sorry, but this is what you voted for, and that's the truth.

Next, the US Chamber of Commerce, which worked hard to elect Biden and Democrats instead of the most pro-business President in decades, is feeling stunned, shocked, betrayed that Biden is pushing that pro-union bill that would destroy contract workers and small businesses. Redstate.com editor Jennifer Van Laar, who’s led opposition to AB5 in California for years, tweeted, “Odd, they pulled the EXACT SAME (BLEEP) on us in CA. They chose not to fight AB5, then were up in arms when there were terrible consequences. S***w you, US Chamber of Commerce. You don’t care about small business or business at all.”

But probably the group with the least convincing tears of regret is a group called “Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden.” They endorsed him despite his clear record as part of an Administration that persecuted nuns for refusing to pay for abortion drugs and contraceptives; his statement that if the SCOTUS overturned Roe V. Wade, he’d go to Congress and make it the law of the land; and the fact that his running mate is the most pro-abortion person ever in the White House.

Now that Biden is doing exactly what anyone with more than two brain cells knew he would do – rolling back religious freedom protections, funding Planned Parenthood, forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions in other nations, attempting to destroy the Hyde Amendment, etc. etc. etc. – they profess to be upset, shocked and disappointed that he’s instituting the most radical pro-abortion agenda in history. Would they feel the same way if they discovered that dogs bark?

I’m having a hard time feeling pity for any of these people because all they had to do was subscribe to this free newsletter and they would have been warned for most of the past year exactly what was going to happen if the Democrats won the White House and Congress. What I do feel sympathy for are the many millions of Americans who will suffer needlessly because of their willfully uninformed votes, and for the countless children who will never survive the womb because this Administration continues to promote a barbaric practice that denies obvious facts of biology, one of those “sciences” that they claim to believe in so fervently.

Senate Retirements

By Mike Huckabee

Missouri Senator Roy Blunt just became the fifth Republican Senator to announce his retirement. This will make it harder for Republicans to take back the Senate in 2022, since, as Rick Moran of PJ Media points out at the link, the GOP was already defending 20 seats while the Democrats only had to defend 14. The open seats mean more in-fighting, more money, and no incumbency advantage.

On the other hand, considering the unbridled mess Biden has made in only six weeks, I shudder to think of the state of the union by 2022. While I hope and pray things won’t be as bad as I fear they will be, if this start is any indication, it’s possible that by 2022, Americans will be so fed up with the Democrats that they’d vote for Pepe LePew if he were the only alternative.

Unexpected

By Mike Huckabee

You might not expect me to write a column defending Britney Spears (even though we’re both great musical talents, of course!) But check out my new column for Fox News.

It’s not just about the pop star but the epidemic problem of greedy people abusing conservatorship laws to rob people, many of them elderly, who should have the freedom to make their own decisions and control their own lives. If it can happen to someone as rich, famous and high-profile as Britney Spears, how can unknown, everyday senior citizens fight back against it?

Disney

By Mike Huckabee

If the phrase, “Get woke, go broke,” is true, then the Disney Corp, which had revenues of over $65 billion last year, is risking an awful lot just to virtue signal its leftist intolerance.

For instance, a new Survey Monkey poll found that most Americans are not at all happy with Disney’s embrace of leftist social issues and canceling of those who don’t conform.

The firing of “The Mandalorian” star Gina Carano over her social media post criticizing cancel culture has only boosted her stardom, and the poll finds widespread disagreement with Disney over it. 58% of those who recognized Carano had a favorable opinion of her. When shown her post (which warned that demonizing others was how the Nazis began their persecution of Jews), 39% thought it could have been worded better but she shouldn’t have been fired for it, and 34% saw nothing wrong with it at all. Bottom line: that’s 73% who think she should not have been fired.

In addition, almost two-thirds believe that companies like Disney have taken political correctness too far; 64% oppose Disney’s decision to close down popular theme park rides that are accused of being “racist” in origin or messaging; and 54% oppose Disney’s threat to boycott Georgia for banning abortions of babies with detectable heartbeats. 51% of self-described Disney fans say its recent activities make them view the company less favorably, and 47% say it’s made them less likely to watch Disney programming.

They also must feel that Disney has no room to be judging others, considering its own hypocrisy. A massive 84% disagree with Disney shooting its live action “Mulan” remake in a province of China where the communist government is oppressing minority groups. Disney should have taken a lesson about ticking off their fans from the fact that that movie cost $200 million to make and earned back $70 million.

But they obviously didn’t, since the latest news is that, joining “The Muppet Show” in Disney-Plus’s adults-only, offensive content section will be “Peter Pan,” “Dumbo” and “The Aristocats,” for their racist depictions of Native Americans, black crows and Siamese cats.

These films will be blocked to children and can be seen by them only with the permission of an adult. Even if adults want to watch them, they’ll have to sit through a disclaimer that lectures, "This program includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures. These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now. Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together."

Funny, if they hadn’t told me, I never would’ve imagined that they were speaking to adults. Most adults I know are capable of realizing that a movie made in 1941 might not reflect the current social values of 2021 and somehow manage to watch “Dumbo” without turning into drooling racists. They might also roll their eyes at the thought that the current Disney suits who think the original classic “Dumbo” is something to be ashamed of are the same ones who gave us the woeful 2019 remake (46% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes.)

Incidentally, TCM is also doing a series called “Reframed Classics” that will include “wide-ranging discussions” of “problematic” aspects of classic films, including “My Fair Lady,” “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” and appropriately enough, “Psycho.” You’d think that if anyone would be grown adults who understand historical context without a condescending lecture, it would be viewers of TCM.

Since Disney seems to think much of its classic catalog that people subscribed to Disney Plus for is offensive, dangerous, racist and should be hidden from children, maybe they’d agree that the best thing to ensure a "more inclusive future" would be for parents to cancel their subscriptions. They could use the money saved to buy DVDs of classic films, so that when they are eventually brutally edited or yanked completely, they’ll still be able to see them as Walt and their other creators intended.

Six Allegations Against Cuomo

By Mike Huckabee

It was bad enough when New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was accused of covering up the true number (about 11,000) of COVID deaths in nursing homes that he'd forced to take in coronavirus patients. But here’s a new wrinkle: Fox News reports that the state has a similar directive barring group homes for those with developmental disabilities from requiring COVID tests for admission and readmission. According to state records, 6900 residents of those homes got the virus, and 552 died.

All this is in addition to two…no, three…no, four…no, five…wait: SIX sexual harassment allegations against Gov. Cuomo.

Cuomo is denying any wrongdoing and dismissed these as minor incidents. He said, “There is a spectrum of allegations. There’s capital crimes, there’s physical violence, right? Down to more minor allegations…There’s allegations and there’s allegations.” He explained, “No one ever told me at the time that I made them feel uncomfortable. Obviously, there are people who said after the fact they felt uncomfortable.”

I’m sure that sounds perfectly reasonable to him, but I can’t help imagining how the media would eviscerate any “clueless, Neanderthal” Republican who said it.

Word of the Day

By Mike Huckabee

“Bowdlerize.” It means to cut out parts of a book or other work that some might deem offensive. It’s derived from Thomas Bowdler, a 19th century English doctor who expanded his obsession with unsanitary conditions into literature by publishing “The Family Shakespeare,” a volume of the Bard’s works with all the parts he found offensive removed. He carried his censorship movement into other works, such as “The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire” (imagine the Roman Empire with all the offensive parts removed – what would be left?)

Literary critics and historians so reviled Bowdler that they helped turn his name into a pejorative term for censored works of art and literature. Today, he would be a hero of the left and probably be put in charge of running Facebook.

A Reader Writes Back...

It's 5 am on a Sunday morning and I really needed an article like this today. It makes my day to know that President Trump has friends in good places. Thank you.

    I read every one of your articles everyday. For some reason The emails quit coming so after a couple of days I re-subscribe. It works again for a couple of days and then nothing. How do I know? I look at an older article, go to your website and see what I have missed.
    How do we fix it?

    I wish the women accusing Cuomo of sexual harassment would hold off until the murder charges
    [522] are brought. As we have seen too many times in the past, once he is impeached for harassment all news coverage stops, people forget, he pays a lot of people off & continues his rich lifestyle. He is responsible for the death of 522 elderly. Let's keep that priority #1, when he is in prison continue the harassment charges & take everything he has left.

    I do not own a smartphone. I have no interest in owning a smartphone. Expensive and made by genocidal maniacs. Interesting how billions compromise their values and condemn millions to torture and enslavement for supposed convenience that no one needs.
    The destructive media platforms which also serve no useful purpose could be shut down in 24 hours if people would simply stop using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
    Simple act with no sacrifice to preserve democracy and human rights.

    After watching an interview with Edward Snowden , I’m wondering why he wasn’t pardoned by President Trump . Seems like he would’ve been instrumental in helping uncover the surveillance abuses being done to gain and maintain political power .

    It may be parents will have to watch out for kids playing governor and doctor.
    Voter's remorse is already having an effect in California's recall of their governor but it needs to be extended to include judges, district attorneys, and departments of justice. Eighty million voters should not lose heart but can rejoice at every opportunity to replace any career politician. Allegations of sexual misconduct support a cover-up of decisions that led to the deaths of many. Other governors made similar decisions and our indoctrinating news corps is avoiding their exposure.

    Here is a thought for you:

    As policies in blue states make life more difficult in those states, we run the risk that this will cause red states to go blue. As people flee blue states for better lives in red states, they tend to take their blue votes with them and turn the red states blue. People don't realize that their "progressive" agenda is what caused the problem in the first place.

    This Administration's Foundation is built on promises made and had no intent on keeping the election itself has laws broken to elect this president we the people are the fools to allow it to happen. Biden stood before the public and said he would be the president for all the people just one misguided statement made 3/4 of the public are not being represented in an American value way. Parents of school children are being left out the children are being left out small business is being left out people of faith are being left out retirees are being left out Fossil Fuel Energy workers are left out who is in Federal workers Blue state run organizations are in Mexican Cartels are in the MSM is in and of course the people that brought us the China Virus are in the CCP. Thanks to the Harris Biden voters some of you are in; in time most of you will be out give it six months and yes the hand that is feeding you now will stop feeding you. The mirror the biden voter looks into will see buyers remorse.

    President Joseph Biden reminds me of the Baltimore Ravens a few years ago when they had a tremendous defense but basically told the offense JUST DON'T LOSE THE GAME. Both Dana and Juan of THE FIVE predicted two wins in Georgia for the Republican. Wow how I wish they were right. I just can't believe one union leader backing President Joseph Biden after the pipeline. If only all the press could make it PERFECTLY CLEAR that a timely streamlined EMERGENCY bill would be best for theUnited States

    I enjoyed your article about Disney-Plus. I was a subscriber until they started editing and playing games with the old movies and cartoons. I made my final decision when they fired Gina Carano. I grew up watching Pepe LePew and other cartoons of the 40's and 50's. Our society has come to a fine pass when people are offended by cartoons and books. 1984, Here we come! Keep up the good work, Governor.
