DAILY BIBLE VERSE

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Philippians 4:6 KJV

 


Excellent Op-Ed

By Mike Huckabee

This is an excellent op-ed by Emily Berning, president of Let Them Live, a pro-life nonprofit that helps support pregnant women who choose life. It’s about the Supreme Court’s decision to hear an appeal of a lower court’s striking down of Mississippi’s late-term abortion ban.

https://www.westernjournal.com/op-ed-scotus-agrees-hear-mississippi-case-one-big-thing-need-remember/

Ms. Berning reminds us that while this is a hopeful sign that the Court might side with ending this barbaric practice, we’ve been here before with other cases and were left disappointed. It’s also a timely reminder that restoring respect for the lives of the unborn isn’t something that can spring from passing a law or scoring a court victory. It takes winning over hearts and minds, and letting vulnerable women know that before they exercise that euphemistic “right to choose,” there is a much better choice that they could make – to choose life -- and people who will help them if they make it.

RIP Coach John McDonnell

By Mike Huckabee

Coach John McDonnell, legendary track/field coach at the University of Arkansas has died at the age of 82. He is the most successful coach in NCAA history, led the Razorbacks to 40 National Championships in Track/Field, and trained and coached numerous Olympic athletes to Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medals.

He was born and raised in Ireland, and never lost his love for his homeland or the accent that be brought with him when he came to the United States as a college student.

Long-time UA Athletic Director Frank Broyles had a knack for spotting coaching talent and saw the untapped genius in Coach McDonnell and hired him for the program when he had limited experience. It proved to show the uncanny ability of Frank Broyles to see greatness in others and the brilliance of Coach McDonnell in turning the Arkansas program into the envy of the nation.

On a personal note, during my days when I was training for and running marathons, I invited Coach McDonnell to the Governor’s Mansion for a lunch to honor him for his achievements. Many of his former standout athletes came to pay tribute to their mentor. For me, it was an excuse to have the privilege of being in the presence of someone I admired. He was the consummate Christian gentleman, but what a delight to sit back and just listen to Coach Johnny Mac and his former track stars reminisce. The love and respect his athletes had for him was testament to his firm discipline, but loving care of those he coached. The greatest tribute of him was said by one of his runners, who simply said, “We TRUSTED Coach Mac.”

To his family, thank you for sharing him with us. We are all better because he was among us. Our condolences to you and our gratitude to God for creating and cultivating such a choice servant of the Kingdom!

Dr. Swain Stands Up Again To Racial Hatred

By Mike Huckabee

I told you about the New York City psychiatrist who spoke to the Yale School of Medicine and declared all white people irredeemably racist, said they “make my blood boil” and are “out of their minds,” and that she fantasies about "unloading a revolver into the head of any White person" who gets in her way. That understandably brought backlash against Yale for hosting her. They’re trying to distance themselves from her comments, while she’s just laughing off the criticism (I’m not a psychiatrist but I understand that inappropriate laughter is also a sign of mental illness, just like uncontrollable rage.)

https://www.foxnews.com/us/former-professor-slams-nyc-psychiatrist-shooting-white-people-unfit-practice-medicine

She should know that among her critics is Dr. Carol Swain, who is both African-American and a retired Princeton professor. Dr. Swain called her comments outrageous and hate-filled, as well as ridiculous, unprofessional, un-American and “probably illegal,” and declared her unfit to practice medicine. Yes, I’d say that’s pretty spot-on.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Dr. Swain has stood up to crazed leftists trying to divide Americans and spread racial hatred. Here she is on “Huckabee” on TBN from 2017, talking about attacks on her for that very reason.

Twitter Hypocrisy

By Mike Huckabee

Unintentional Joke of the Day! Or possibly the millennium. After Twitter banned the President of Nigeria for a tweet threatening stern consequences for young protesters who are launching arson attacks on government offices and police stations, the government of Nigeria retaliated by banning Twitter from the entire country.

https://www.theblaze.com/news/twitter-human-right-conservatives-reactions

You’re right, that’s hilarious (without Twitter, I’ll bet the people of Nigeria get smarter, nicer and more tolerant almost overnight), but I haven’t even gotten to the really funny part yet. Here’s Twitter’s response to being banned from Nigeria (warning, you might want to sit down to keep from falling over laughing):

“We are deeply concerned by the blocking of Twitter in Nigeria. Access to the free and #OpenInternet is an essential human right in modern society. We will work to restore access for all those in Nigeria who rely on Twitter to communicate and connect with the world. #KeepitOn."

So Twitter now admits that in banning Donald Trump, they are denying an American President an essential human right. Likewise, every time they ban a conservative for expressing a conservative viewpoint, or any American for expressing an opinion counter to the unquestionable authority of whatever “experts” their “factcheckers” rely on, they have denied those people an essential human right in modern society.

As you might imagine, a number of prominent conservatives had a field day with Twitter’s bone-jarring hypocrisy, and you can read a round-up of their replies at the link above. A couple of favorites: James Woods, who has been suspended from Twitter on various occasions, replied, “If irony were a food, Twitter could cure hunger overnight.”

And referring to the left’s argument that if you don’t like Twitter’s biased censorship, you can build your own social media platform, one anonymous user told Twitter, “Just build your own Nigeria then.”

Personally, I think Twitter’s hypocrisy speaks for itself, but then, it long has. Aside from Trump and conservatives, what about the way Twitter denies this essential human right to Iranians? Twitter is also officially banned in China, yet Twitter blocked people for questioning China’s official story on the origins of COVID-19. Why did they deny people’s essential human right to be on Twitter to protect a regime that denies the essential human right to be on Twitter?

And while I don’t endorse feminist author Naomi Wolf’s extreme tweets about COVID-19 vaccines, like that they enable you to “time-travel,” isn’t it even more extreme to ban her permanently with no right to appeal, thereby depriving her forever of an “essential human right?” Critics accuse her of spouting crazy, dangerous nonsense, but Hollywood is full of people who do that and they never get banned from Twitter.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9656953/Twitter-suspends-author-Naomi-Wolf-spreading-misinformation-Covid-vaccines.html

I stay on Twitter because it is a good way to reach people, but I’ve also built up my own website, newsletter, TV show, podcast and accounts on many other social media platforms, just in case. To cite some country wisdom, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.” Especially not a basket that draws more loons than a porch light draws moths.

A MUST-READ article about "woke social justice" and how to stop it

By Mike Huckabee

There’s an article by Michael Dahlen at THE OBJECTIVE STANDARD that tells you everything you need to know about the “woke social justice” movement and anti-racism. It’s long, so find some time, but it’s a must-read.

https://theobjectivestandard.com/2021/05/a-woke-new-world/

Read this, and you’ll understand why "wokeness" as expressed in Critical Race Theory is such a threat, and why it has so quickly taken over academia and corporate life. There is absolutely no way to oppose it --- or even to insufficiently support it --- without being accused of racism and punished accordingly. This is a philosophy that’s designed to be impervious to rational argument, because, hey, it associates rationality with white supremacy. If you try to come at it with facts or reason –- which is very easy to do –- that only proves what a white supremacist you are. It’s like the mass hysteria associated with the Salem witch trials: “You are a witch! Better for you just to come out and say so. If you say you’re NOT a witch, that proves to us all the more that you ARE a witch.”

“Oh, and we don’t need evidence," they continue. "We can take your most innocuous statement, maybe from many years ago, and choose to be offended by it, or pretend we know your mind even better than you do and can tell what you really meant by it.”

This philosophy is a house of cards that can’t stand up to debate for five minutes. That’s why they built a protection into it: it doesn’t allow debate.

What “anti-racism” (actually, racism) does is flip the old white-over-black power structure of generations past into reverse. Instead of trying to extinguish oppression, as we’ve been working for many years to do, it asserts that oppression is always with us and always will be, no matter what, in EVERYTHING. And now, they say, it’s time for those “of color” (non-white) to be paid back by white people. White people were on the top; now they’re going to be on the bottom, and we will “guilt” them into going along with this. They believe we are in the time of “racial reckoning.”

What I don’t see “anti-racists” acknowledging is that this philosophy has turned them into the very thing they used to hate when it was white people doing it. THEY are the racists now, only they’ve re-defined “racism” so that in their own minds, they’re not. Language, you see, is a societal construct. And they get to control the language now.

They get to write the dictionary. That’s why we have to call these activists what they want and use their choice of 57 different pronouns to refer to them, but they also get to call us things like “cis-gendered,” even if that’s the last thing we want to be called. This is the new Newspeak. And there's new terminology we're all expected to learn.

Speaking of George Orwell, here’s a three-paragraph excerpt from the article that telegraphically shows how twisted and Orwellian the new “woke” social justice is...

……………….

“In George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984, the ruling socialist party had three slogans: War is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength. To say that social justice ideology is Orwellian is an understatement: Reality is a social-linguistic construct—truth is culturally subjective—objectivity is a Western bias—knowledge is a power game—upholding American values is a microaggression—speech is violence—initiating violence is self-defense—earned success is privilege—equal treatment is privilege promoting—argumentation is privilege preserving—disagreement is fragility—merit is unfair—the rule of law is unjust—protecting individual rights is subjugation—individualism is racism—race neutrality is racist—racial discrimination against whites is ‘anti-racist’—color blindness is a preference for whites—diversity of thought is white supremacy—whiteness is domination—being white is to be complicit in racism—being male is to be complicit in sexism—science is racist and sexist—masculinity is toxic—everything is oppressive.

“This is...wholesale intellectual corruption—the corruption of language, thought, and communication. Social justice ideology is brainwashing young minds. It’s rotting our cultural institutions. It’s sowing strife, division, animus.

"Recall that social justice activists want individuals purged for questioning BLM, purged for defending law enforcement, purged for saying “all lives matter,” purged for supporting peaceful protests over riots. They call for abolishing the police. They defend rioting and looting (or commit it themselves). They block, harass, and shut down speakers. They reflexively slander their adversaries as racists, fascists, Nazis, misogynists, or white supremacists."

…………………………………………..

I hope you’ll read this entire article. You’ll understand how deeply “anti-racists” hate America and how hard they’re trying to burn down every social convention. All must be “sacrificed on the altar of gendered racial identity.” And if you think this is some kind of fringe movement, think again. It’s infected popular culture, academia, corporate business, even the military and government agencies. A society based on this philosophy would be an absolute nightmare, a disaster of epic proportions. But we can beat this back, if we only have the courage to be vocal about it, and ABSOLUTELY REJECT IT. DO NOT SIT QUIETLY.

I’ll end with a few more quotes from the article –- about CRT'S rejection of reason and how we can and MUST fight against this –- hoping, again, that you’ll read the whole article.

…………………………

“The thuggish, authoritarian behavior of social justice activists follows not only from the specific tenets of their ideology, but from one of their deepest philosophic premises: the postmodernist rejection of reason. When facts, logic, science, and objectivity are off the table, the only alternatives are smears, deceit, intimidation, and violence....

“The only antidote to a corrupt, irrational philosophy is a rational philosophy, one upholding reason, logic, objectivity, and free will, one extolling the value and reality of the individual, one recognizing that the individual is defined and should be judged by his choices, actions, and character, not by his race or gender.168 Such a philosophy, moreover, is the only antidote to racism, sexism, and other forms of prejudice.

“Now more than ever, such a philosophy must be articulated, defended, and tirelessly fought for as if our rights, our freedom, and our nation depend on it—because they do.”

Re: Opposing HR1

Senators Manchin and Sinema are patriots if they stand firm. They deserve the support of conservatives. They have mine.

    Mike,
    This is the best political idea for the Republicans that I have ever heard. What's better it would put Trump in position to be President if Biden and Harris for whatever reason do not cut it.
    Jane and I are looking forward to seeing you at Friday's taping.
    All the best,

    The Game-Changer from My Exclusive Interview with Former President Donald J. Trump

    Days ago, I was honored to spend time with former President Donald Trump for an exclusive one-on-one interview on my nationally syndicated radio show, "Wayne Allyn Root: Raw & Unfiltered" on USA Radio Network.
    Before I get to the most important game-changer to come out of that interview, I'd like to get one thing out of the way. Just having this interview proves how wrong Democrats, liberals and assorted Marxist fools are about America. Most Democrats today are America-haters and national anthem kneelers. They find only fault with America. They see our history as negative. They see our country as "racist." They see an America that holds people down. Their glass is always half-empty.
    My glass is always half-full. I love America. I see American exceptionalism. I see a country that lifts everyone up (at least everyone who wants it). I see a country filled with opportunity and mobility. I see the greatest country in world history, ever blessed by God.
    And I just proved my view of this country is the right one. I'm a blue-collar SOB (son of a butcher) from a dead-end street on the Bronx borderline. My dad, the butcher, wore a white apron with blood stains at work. I'm Jewish -- which makes me part of a tiny minority group that has faced tremendous hate and discrimination. Yet here I was, interviewing the former president of the United States, one on one. Only in America.
    I am living proof of how great America is. Who would be stupid enough to want to change THAT? Only Democrats. They are the dumbest and most ignorant, clueless and dangerous people on planet earth. We should all run far away from Democrats -- before they turn America into a socialist craphole.
    Now, to my interview. We covered a ton of important topics -- including the rigged and stolen election, COVID-19, China and the witch hunt against Trump.
    But all of that pales in comparison to the most important idea that came out of our talk. A solution. A way to save America. A way to take back America.
    A game-changer.
    Trump appeared to be fascinated by my idea. He'd clearly never heard it before. But Trump wasn't the only one who liked the idea. I received thousands of emails and texts overnight. And virtually every one of them said this idea was brilliant and could change the course of history. This idea gets conservatives excited and motivated again. So, I know I've struck a chord.
    Are you ready to hear it? Are you ready to change history?
    I want Trump to run for a House seat in 2022. Pick a winnable Republican district in Florida -- where the president is beloved. I promise 74 million-plus Trump voters will get excited. They will volunteer, donate, spread the word and, yes, many will move to your district in Florida to help elect you, Mr. President.
    This isn't about one House seat. With Trump campaigning and leading the battle, Republicans will sweep to victory in 2022 with the biggest GOP voter turnout in history. We will win a GOP House landslide by 40 to 60 seats -- just like in 2010 and 2014.
    Now, to the important part of my plan. The GOP Congress then elects Trump as speaker of the House -- the second most powerful job in America. From that platform, Trump rules Washington, D.C., for the next two years. He is President Joe Biden's worst nightmare.
    Speaker of the House Trump can open a dozen criminal investigations against Biden. He can lead the impeachment of Biden (how ironic would that be?). He can block every single Biden bill. He will stop the Biden agenda dead in its tracks.
    And don't forget, Speaker of the House Trump can sit behind Biden for each State of the Union address. I can't wait to watch that.
    I told Trump he will become an American folk hero. His legend will grow even bigger. His brand and actions will dominate Washington politics leading into 2024. From that platform, folk hero Trump wins the presidency again in 2024 -- after first saving America from the Biden disaster.
    Trump was clearly fascinated by the idea. He should be. It's a game-changer for Trump, for the GOP and for America.
    The seed has been planted. I hope and pray I just changed the course of history. God bless Trump, and God bless America.

    A random thought struck me the other day. If we were all Racist for saying the Wuhan Virus came from China. how much worse is it to blame the Chinese for inventing gun powder, which has killed hundreds of times more than the Wuhan virus? Will NPR be cancelled for their "racism?
