2001 All Over Again

June 4, 2017

Before we let the left’s collective meltdown destroy the polar ice caps, let’s remember that we’ve heard this hysteria before. Every time a Republican President backs out of a terrible deal or treaty negotiated by a Democratic predecessor, the left and the media behave as if the world is coming to an end.

The closest example to Trump dumping the Paris deal came in 2001, when George W. Bush pulled America out of the Kyoto Protocol, which was arguably worse than the Paris deal because its CO2 emission restrictions were actually binding. Bush said he believed the free market would be more effective at reducing CO2 than restrictive government. European leaders, the left and the media assailed him as a crazy, corporate-controlled maniac who was going to “DESTROY THE WORLD!!” (Trademark registered.)

Actual result: thanks to the free market, fracking was invented, producing abundant clean natural gas, which has reducing CO2 emissions in the US by about twice the levels required by the Kyoto Protocol. And all while expanding the US economy, not hamstringing it. So when you hear the leftist leaders' howls of outrage over what Trump just did and the claim that he’s going to “DESTROY THE WORLD!!” remember that we’ve heard it before and the world is still here. And for some fathomable reason, so are they.

    I think he's doing a great job. I pray he doesn't get discouraged by the horrible left! I think he has put up with so much crap, it must be very hard to keep his mind on his job. God bless him and our country. I believe he is our last, best hope!

    Governor Huckabee, every day is another day closer to bringing up from the edge thanks to you and people like our president Donald Trump. Thank God for all you do and God bless you.

    Governor Huckabee, I believe much of these problems are due to Christians NOT fully understanding their Duty and Responsibilities as a Citizen of the USA, to GOD and the Citizens of the USA.

    So they do not keep informed, or treat their elected officials as employees by keeping aware of their activities and evaluating their performance on a regular basis.

    Nor do they make their voices heard to let those same officials know that they are being evaluated.

    This Government of the People, by the People, for the People, was made to ensure that no single person had complete and total control of it!

    WE are to be a Government run from the bottom up, our elected officials and even the President, are supposed to be in service to Us, Not Just the other way around, and it's ensured for the Citizens of the USA, by the Authority of the U.S. Constitution, Authority existing due to GOD*!

    Therefore,

    The majority of those who stand up hold to their word, and do their jobs to the best of their ability (Including their Duties and Responsibilities of the Authority appointed by GOD as Citizens, of this Nation!),
    are the ones who should be running our Government!

    *Romans 13:1-7

    Let EVERY Soul be subject to the Governing Authorities.

    For there is NO Authority EXCEPT from GOD,
    and The AUTHORITIES that EXIST are APPOINTED By GOD.

    Therefore Whoever Resists the Authority Resists the ORDINANCE of GOD,
    and Those who Resist will bring Judgment on Themselves.

    For Rulers are NOT a Terror to GOOD Works, but to Evil.

    Do You want to be Unafraid of the Authority?

    Do what is Good, and you will have praise from the same.

    For He is GOD’S Minister to You for GOOD.

    But if you Do Evil, Be AFRAID;

    for He does NOT Bear the Sword in Vain;

    for he is GOD’S Minister,
    an AVENGER to Execute Wrath on Him who Practices EVIL.

    Therefore you must be Subject,
    NOT only because of Wrath but also for Conscience’ sake.

    For because of this you also pay taxes,
    for They are GOD’S Ministers attending Continually to this very thing.

    Render therefore to ALL their Due:

    Taxes to whom Taxes are Due, Customs to whom Customs, Fear to whom Fear, Honor to whom Honor.

    Romans 13:1-7

    Remember this too,
    for those who Stand with CHRIST, putting GOD First, And Loving Your Neighbor As You Love Yourself,
    LOVE is the FULFILLMENT of the Law!
    (Romans 13:8-10)

    Our Kingdom Is NOT Of This WORLD, It Is INCORRUPTIBLE, EVERLASTING, & HOLY, Ruled By GOD'S Right Hand,
    Our KING Of KINGS, & LORD Of LORDS,
    JESUS, The Christ, Our Savior,
    To The GLORY Of GOD, The Father! Amen

    Christians Our Strength And Power On This World,
    Is IN CHRIST!

    I usually refrain from discussions with Liberals because their mind is already made up. Sad, but most often true.

    Sadly, and even frighteningly, today's problems with the liberals are exacerbated and magnified by their vitriolic HATRED of just about everything related to conservative values, reasoning, or to President Trump - as if they are deranged. I'll be 65 in a few days; born and raised in San Francisco (now living in IL - ugh), *participated* in the "Summer of Love" in the 60's, experienced the whole Vietnam *Make love not war* era, bla-bla-bla. So I've seen/experienced protests, anger, war. You Mike, are three years younger, but as you have exceptional knowledge of all history, you certainly know about the times/generation in which I grew up. Dad was a WWII Navy pilot, Mom stayed home and did EVERYTHING, and my 3 siblings and I endured 13 years of Catholic school - yep, Kindergarden also! So we received an excellent education and were raised with, what I consider, traditional beliefs. Now, at the risk of sounding trite, I daily think, "I've truly never seen ANYTHING this bad or ugly." I'm not even sure anymore it's truly about specific issues - I'm afraid it's progressed (or devolved) to a basic affair of good and evil. Both my parents are gone now, and I was unable to have children, but I'm grateful none of them has to/would have had to experience this. I've started reading Revelation lately and there's little doubt in my mind we're approaching the nearness of the end times. I thank God for you, Mike Huckabee, and your generous heart and spirit, and I pray for our President & his family every day (and for you too!). God bless our Country - all of us!
