THE EVENING EDITION By Mike Huckabee

Good evening! Here are some stories from me that I think you will want to read. 


DAILY BIBLE VERSE

The Lord is my light and my salvation—

so why should I be afraid?

The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger,

so why should I tremble?

Psalm 27:1 NLT

Today's verse was recommended by Leslie E.



THE LATEST NEWS

1. Quote Of The Day:

From Greg Gutfeld: Biden was sold to voters as a comfy sweater that we could all put on and feel warm and snuggly again, “but he turned out to be a corset made of bees.”


2. Blumenthal Update:

Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal, facing a storm of criticism, claims that he was unaware that the hosts of an awards event he recently attended, the Connecticut People’s World Committee, is an affiliate of the Communist Party USA and the Marxist People’s World news site.

You can read his full statement at the link, but in a nutshell: he’s a capitalist and a Democrat, he gets invited to a lot of things, he thought it was just a labor event, if he’d known they were commies he wouldn’t have gone, etc. The fact that so many of his views and those of his communist hosts happen to coincide is just an unfortunate coincidence (okay, he didn’t actually say that, but I thought I’d help him.)


3. Mad At Manchin:

Speaking of communism and Senators from New England, Bernie Sanders is very ticked at Sen. Joe Manchin for not going along with the massive “Build Back Better” spending bill. Sanders called Manchin “arrogant” for blocking what 48 other Senate Democrats want to do (never mind that the vast majority of his West Virginia constituents oppose the bill.)

https://www.westernjournal.com/build-back-blunder-manchin-causing-chaos-hill-dems-lose-minds-impatience/

Okay, let’s unpack that. First of all, 48 Senators isn’t a majority of the Senate. Even if Manchin caved, Kyrsten Sinema still opposes it, so that would make it 49…which is STILL a minority. Even if they had 50 votes, forcing massive spending and transformative government changes onto an unwilling public via a phony “budget reconciliation” bill that passes by one tie-breaking vote is pure arrogance.

But as Kennedy pointed out on Fox News’ “The Five,” Bernie’s beloved socialism itself is the epitome of arrogance. It’s the belief that you have the right to take other people’s money and property on grounds that you can spend and use it better than they can, and they should be grateful to you for it.

Of course, we shouldn’t be surprised because Bernie is the poster child for arrogance. He’s never held a successful private sector job in his life, yet he’s convinced that he knows more about running the US economy and every business and industry in America than the people who actually founded and run them. If his ego were any more inflated, he could finally get a successful private sector job as a Macy’s Parade balloon.

Related: Bernie first tasted the sweet life of getting rich in socialist politics when he landed his first elected position as mayor of Burlington, Vermont. Those folks apparently didn’t learn their lesson, because they bought into the “defund the police” idiocy. And even in a town like Burlington, it’s had predictable results.

UPDATE:  Manchin announced on Fox News this morning that he will not vote for BBB.


4. Add NBC to the list:

Nick Sandmann, the former Catholic school student defamed by the media, has already won lawsuit settlements from the Washington Post and CNN. Now, add NBC to the list of media outlets who apparently never realized that there could be consequences for destroying someone’s reputation with irresponsible lies.

5.  A Christmas Miracle: 

Kevin Downey Jr. celebrates a Christmas miracle: some violent Antifa thugs FINALLY being sentenced to prison. In most cases, not as much prison time as January 6th rioters who didn’t attack anyone got, but at least they won’t be out on the streets doing it again for a while. And that’s a major improvement over the Democrat policies of the past couple of years.

6.  My Weekend Monologue:

Regardless of who is in power, the one thing Americans deserve and demand of their government is that it sees its power as a sacred trust from the people and operates even-handedly within the law. There should be no difference at all in how a Democrat or a Republican is treated by the government, whether it’s agencies like the IRS or by the Department of Justice, the FBI, and the court system. Lady Justice is supposed to be blind to everything but the law and her scales are to be even. Sadly, most of us know that is simply not the case these days. The weaponization and politicization of the highest levels of law enforcement such as the FBI in trying to tie Donald Trump to the Russians are a prime example. Indictments handed down by special prosecutor John Durham already reveal that there was a vast conspiracy that started from the Hillary Clinton campaign and its operatives resulting in fabricated dossiers used to actually spy on the Trump campaign in 2016 and even after he was sworn in as President. The cover-up led all the way to the Director of the FBI, the head of the CIA, as well as corrupt members of Congress like Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, Jerry Nadler, and others who unleashed the full power of the federal government to discredit Donald Trump and to protect those who abused their positions of trust in the government and who should be in prison right now.

This is not a small thing. When Richard Nixon abused his power as President and surrounded himself with those who committed crimes to influence an election and then to cover it up, there was a universal anger from not just Democrats, but Republicans as well. And the media relentless pursued the truth wherever it led them.

Those days are gone. We’ve seen disgusting abuses of power in our government toward people just like you. In the Obama years, Lois Lerner, a high-level IRS official, singled out conservative, pro-life, and pro-Christian organizations to deny them non-profit status and targeted some with such heavy-handed tactics that they ultimately ceased to exist because they couldn’t match the resources of the federal government to fight back.

The greatest threat to our nation, its institutions, and to our children is not the national debt, although it’s a serious threat to our economy. It’s not what China or Russia might do or attempt to do, regardless of how bold they might be in cyber-attacks or worse, a military assault. The greatest threat to America is not even the hyper-partisan and radically left social media and high-tech giants, and they pose serious threats to Constitutionally protected free speech. The greatest single threat to our nation is that our own government would engage in nothing less than criminal enterprises to deprive some Americans of due process and equal protection under the law and would excuse and ignore criminal behavior on the part of those who are on the side of the political party in power. If we can’t trust our law enforcement officials, the courts, and the legislature and executive branches to play straight, it’s not a matter of IF we will collapse, but WHEN. During my tenure as Governor, one of my regulatory agencies came to me and told me that a personal friend and long-time supporter of mine was engaging in unlawful activities regarding that industry. When they asked what they should do, I immediately said, “It’s simple: You treat that individual no better or no worse, but if the law has been broken, spare nothing.” That cost me the friendship of the individual as well as friends as family members of the individual, but better to lose friends than lose one’s honor and solemn duty to treat all persons the same. That means treating a political adversary as fairly as a friend and a friend no different than a foe. If government fails to do that and treats power as if it’s a political license to destroy opposition, our government is more corrupt than anything or anyone it tries to adjudicate. And we really will have lost the country.


7. #IStandWithJKRowling

“Harry Potter” creator J.K. Rowling has been the subject of a furious cancel campaign by trans activists for defending women’s rights against the erosion of them by men “identifying” as women. She says she’s gotten enough death threats to paper her house (what a great example of tolerance these people are.) But bless her, she refuses to shut up and bend the knee. Having that “Harry Potter” money probably helps. And now, she's doubled down on speaking common sense to power.

When a British politician introduced an insane new proposal that would require police to book accused rapists as females if they claim to identify as female, Rowling responded with a tweet so brilliant and brutal that it set off yet another storm of Twitter mob outrage.

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/athena-thorne/2021/12/13/did-j-k-rowling-just-get-red-pilled-n1541206

But from the way the hashtag #IStandWithJKRowling quickly started trending, maybe this is a hopeful sign that people are finally getting fed up with having to hold their tongues and nod along in the face of absolute lunacy, like the crowd in the fairy tale pretending that the emperor isn’t really naked (except for his high heels.)
