DAILY BIBLE VERSE
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

The most dangerous man in the world
With Vladimir Putin brutally invading Ukraine, the mullahs of Iran chanting, “Death to America,” China’s President overseeing enslavement and genocide, and even George Soros funding the destruction of America by filling our streets with violent criminals, who does Joe Biden think is the most dangerous man in the world?
You guessed it: the guy who founded Fox News.
As for who’s really the most dangerous person in the world, Biden might not want to ask Americans that question, because he wouldn’t like their answer. In a new poll by the Democracy Institute, 57% of Americans disapprove of how Biden is doing his job, and 70% say the country is on the wrong track. But even more startling is that they’d rather Biden lose his job than Vladimir Putin lose his. Asked to pick which would be better for the US, 52% said “Biden loses power in the US,” while 43% picked “Putin loses power in Russia.”
I don’t think anyone picked “Fox News goes off the air,” unless they polled CNN anchors.
BLM Update: Now they tell us
In yet another one of those “So now they tell us” stories, New York Magazine reports that the leaders of Black Lives Matter allegedly used donations to secretly buy a $6 million luxury mansion in Southern California.
With the nonprofit facing legal scrutiny over its handling of funds, a video reportedly showed three BLM leaders marking the anniversary of the death of George Floyd by sipping champagne on the patio of the mansion they secretly bought with donors’ money. They claim they plan to use the mansion as a “safe house” and staging ground for social media content creation.
While BLM’s leaders are trying to deflect suspicions by accusing critics of being racist, what sets off my radar is something that has nothing to do with race. As you’ll see in the linked story, it’s BLM’s involvement with notorious leftwing law firm Perkins Coie, “home of high-profile Democrat election lawyer Marc Elias.” Talk about being judged by the company you keep.
Truth Social, Elon Musk and Twitter
Reuters reports that former President Trump’s new free speech Twitter alternative, Truth Social, has gotten off to a rocky start. The crush of initial downloads created long wait times, there’s still no app for Android phones, and Trump himself (the big draw) has written only one post. Now, two key senior executives have resigned.
Another twist also came out of the blue: Elon Musk’s purchase of nearly 12% of Twitter’s stock makes him the largest shareholder in the company. He’s now been appointed to their board of directors.
This has sparked hope among conservatives that he will force Twitter to return to the unbiased free speech outlet it used to be. Already, there are calls online for him to demand that Twitter end its political censorship and lift its many suspensions of conservatives, including reinstating Trump’s Twitter account.
Nobody yet knows exactly what Musk’s plans are for Twitter’s future, but I can’t imagine it being worse than its recent past. If I could make a suggestion, I’d ask the staff for anonymous tips on who needs to be fired. That would probably help identify a lot of leftwing radicals who’ve been ruining the company by banning and bullying everyone who disagrees with them. Of course, that might also mean finding another new CEO.
A former Disney artist who was fed up with what he describes as the “internal hostile takeover” of Disney by a small minority of leftist radicals began anonymously creating videos parodying Disney’s woke turn under the name PolitiZoid. With the recent public exposure of the company’s leftward lurch, he’s revealed his name: Bob Arvin.
Arvin told Glenn Beck at Blaze TV that this small cadre of leftists is emboldened and “using the smear campaign against the bill in Florida to push their agenda.” He said much like the nation itself, a small active minority is steering the ship, and the majority are either afraid to speak out or just waking up to what’s going on and trying to figure out how to fight it. As for Disney, Arvin said, "They are abandoning their core audience in favor of this agenda, and if they don't destroy it, it'll be damaged for a generation."
Click the link for more and to see Arvin’s brilliant animated parody of a trip through a theme park ride that reflects the current Disney culture: “It’s a Woke World.” Turn on the closed captions to catch every biting word. But I should warn you, just like with the real “It’s a Small World” ride, that earworm song may drive you nuttier than Disney’s CEO.

This is awesome
Big congratulations to gospel icon CeCe Winans, who won three Grammy Awards for her great album, “Believe For It,” bringing her lifetime total to fifteen. We’re not only proud of her for making so much inspiring, award-winning music, but also because this was her first live album. And if you look closely at this video, you might recognize the theater where it was recorded as the TBN “Huckabee” studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee!
You knew we had the best band on TV, but now you know our studio is Grammy-worthy, too.
Something nice for a change
A feature story about Matthew McConaughey’s wife Alves. She grew up on a farm in Brazil, lived for a while with him in Malibu, and is now so much happier since their family moved to Texas, where she says people enjoy the outdoors, kids respect their parents, people say “yes, ma’am” and “no, sir,” and go to church on Sundays.
It should be required reading for all the Californians who are fleeing to Texas on how happy they can be if they just refrain from voting for the same idiocy that caused them to flee California.
I Just Wanted to Say:
