DAILY BIBLE VERSE

If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

Romans 12:18


Simple Answers, Please

By Mike Huckabee

My daughter having been a White House Press Secretary, I can appreciate how stressful a job it is, so I’m not as hard on Jen Psaki as many conservative commentators. Still, I sometimes can’t help wondering if she’s getting her talking points from the White House via a game of “Telephone.”

Fox News’ Peter Doocey asked her a simple, straightforward question: If COVID vaccines work, why did the CDC reverse itself and say that fully vaccinated people should go back to wearing masks indoors in areas of high or substantial transmission of the virus, which includes 2/3rds of US counties? Her response wasn’t very enlightening.

Look, I get it: no vaccine is 100% effective, and there may be new variants we still have to avoid. That’s the answer in 16 simple words. Why couldn’t she have said that?

Maybe because she’s being forced to try to explain so many mixed messages that it’s like trying to read a newspaper as it comes out of a wood chipper. Biden has always been known as a gaffe machine, but lately, the gas pedal on his mouth has been stuck at full throttle, and the ever-changing “guidances” from the CDC aren’t helping. After trying to appeal to people who are wary of getting vaccinated because the CDC has lost so much credibility, Biden just pivoted to insulting their intelligence, which is a surefire way to win friends and influence people.

I know Ms Psaki will get blasted by the conservative media for however she has to explain that, but I almost feel sympathy for her. If she had to face a Press Corps that was as hostile to her as it was to Sarah, I’d suggest she get combat pay.

Margin Of Error in California

By Mike Huckabee

Democrats who scoffed that the California recall election was a waste of time and money (and then threw up every roadblock possible to prevent it from happening) may panic at the latest poll from Democrat-friendly UC-Berkeley.

https://redstate.com/jenniferoo/2021/07/27/ca-recall-even-friendly-pollsters-cant-help-newsom-as-the-recall-enters-the-margin-of-error-n417443

It shows support for Newsom at 50% with 47% wanting to recall him and only 3% undecided. Three percent is the poll’s margin of error.

I don’t like to think of him continuing in power a day longer than necessary, but if he does manage to survive the recall vote, how appropriate it will be to say that he was kept in office by the margin of error.


Verifiable Lies

By Mike Huckabee

In what I’m sure will become a daily feature, Redstate.com is compiling a list of verifiable lies told at the House’s January 6th commission hearing. Here’s Day One:

Ominous Development For Freedom Of Speech

By Mike Huckabee

In an ominous development for freedom of speech and thought, the money-transfer giant Paypal announced that it’s partnering with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to consider ways to block financial flow to groups that support “white supremacist and anti-government organizations.” It will also look at “networks spreading and profiting from antisemitism, Islamophobia, racism, anti-immigrant, anti-Black, anti-Hispanic and anti-Asian bigotry.”

https://www.ctvnews.ca/business/paypal-to-research-transactions-that-fund-hate-groups-extremists-1.5523574

Nobody wants to fund any of that garbage for real, but that statement casts an awfully wide net. The problem is, who gets to define those terms? Does “anti-government” mean it’s now a crime punishable by financial death to criticize the great god government? Is "racist" defined by the same people who claim that literally everything is racist? We’ve already seen many examples, from social media platforms to Paypal itself, of woke tech companies cutting off Internet access or financial services to perfectly legitimate conservative and Christian organizations just because some leftists slandered them as a hate group.

If there are any conservative billionaires out there who’d like to look into launching a new financial services business, Paypal suddenly appears to be ripe for competition.


Comedy Is Racist

By Mike Huckabee

Robin DiAngelo, the white lady who’s made a fat living off of peddling woke racial divisiveness and cringing white liberal guilt to corporations and the media via her absurd book “White Fragility,” must know how many people, including some professional comedians (although not late night hosts, of course) are starting to shake off their fear of cancel culture and make fun of her nonsense. You can tell because she’s now declared comedy itself to be racist.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/white-fragility-author-comedy-excuse-racist

I’m not going to recount what passes for her “reasoning,” because it was painful enough just having to slog through it once. But you can read it at the link. It might remind you of the classic scene in Mel Brooks’ “History of the World” where he’s a Greek philosopher applying for unemployment, and the clerk (Bea Arthur) says, “Oh, you’re a bull-BLEEP artist,” and asks, “Did you bull-BLEEP last week?...Did you TRY to bull-BLEEP?...” No wonder she hates comedy: Mel Brooks has already summed up her profession perfectly.

You won’t be surprised to learn that this tidbit of self-interest disguised as high-mindedness came in an interview promoting her new book, "Nice Racism: How Progressive White People Perpetuate Racial Harm." Finally, she said something we can all agree with!

Comedy is essential to free speech and free thought. Since the days when court jesters were the only ones allowed to joke about the king, it’s been the job of comedians to mock the foibles and hypocrisies of all sides, especially those in power. They perform the vital service of pointing out when the emperor has no clothes. That’s why tyrants always try to crack down on comedy, and why victims of oppressive regimes always have plenty of jokes about their leaders that they only tell amongst themselves. Here in America, we tell those jokes out in the open. Or at least we used to (I refused to stop), and I hope we’re finally getting back to doing it again.

For the record: no, Ms DiAngelo, I will not stop joking about things that richly deserve it, and if that includes certain politicians or celebrities who happen to be black, then so be it. Claiming as she does that it’s racist for white people to joke about black people is itself racist and condescending. The shows she criticizes (“Family Guy,” “South Park,” “The Simpsons”) often include jokes that are offensive to my sensibilities, but I’d never say they shouldn’t be allowed to make them. They can make fun of my beliefs, and I can make fun of theirs. And fortunately, since MsDiAngelo is white, she should have no objections to all of us making fun of her beliefs, which are a veritable Mother Lode of comedy material.

Free Stuff

By Mike Huckabee

Well, people in blue cities like San Francisco voted in leftists because they promised everything would be free, and for once, they kept their promise.

    Mr. Huckabee,
    I seem to not be able to respond the your Daughter's emails(campaign stuff)--I keep getting non-delivery stuff
    The last reply i sent was this:

    I am all for the morals and conservative viewpoints you stand for--you need to further your message in a logical and compelling way.
    relegating this position to one of $ is offensive--when your msg is primarily of needing $ for some dubious "deadline" that I don't really care about, you debase your msg and fall into the very same "swamp" the people you are trying to defeat--this is what they do--don't include yourself in the mire your opposition is swimming in--it degrades the message you are trying to convey--"

    Please, if you can let her know I stand with her views--but the constant barrage of asking for $ is just what the opposition does--this tactic puts her in the same corner as the ones she is trying to convince others not to support--

    How about this:
    "I am running for xx position. I know that my opponents have amassed many dollars to try to defeat me. I hope you will consider my position and solemn promise to do all that is within my power to live up to your expectations-those that you have asked me to champion. I will ALWAYS listen to the constituents, and Never fail to personally reply to ANY valid question you have. I depend on your vote to help us further our State/county/Town direction as you,the constituents, direct"

    She sends this type of commitment out she will not have any problem getting elected---

    Ask her to consider---
    Gary

    biden just ordered all federal employees--read "federal"--that means they work for ME --to reveal their 'medical' status as to whether they have been vacinated--oops! that's very private info(remember obama's HIPA act???)
    Since when do the people of the United States have to suffer a dictatorship?? My vax status is none of the fed's business - biden has no clue as to what he is doing--who is running this Country??
    Why are the folks we elected to represent us doing NOTHING?

    Sorry, I did not make myself clear last time. The Government Accounting Office (GAO) knows exactly how many illegals came across the borders, how many buses etc. and "Welcome to USA" checks they paid to transport and house and feed all these illegals from Yours and Mine Tax dollars. The GAO knows exactly where they were transported to, and how many are in each location. That is their job to maintain very accurate money in/money out records. Those records can be subpoena especially, if any lawyer had the integrity to represent the taxpayers in a class action law suit or our CONgress/Senate did they damn job we are paying them for and swore an oath to uphold... This is not just impeachable but damn out-right treason against our nation's sovereignty and every CONgress and Senate person KNOWS IT!

    I wonder what it is like to be Biden in the morning does he wonder who he is. On a good day he might be happy but doesn’t know why not to worry he has his handlers program him for the morning to insult people or forced to sign a new document then he is ready for his nap once in a while his handlers take him on a plane ride so he can wear his aviator sunglasses then the rest home for a few days that the president of the us so unfit
