Ilhan Omar: Reading is fundamental
By Mike Huckabee
“Squad” member Rep. Ilhan Omar, whose understanding of economics is on the level of a four-year-old’s understanding of astrophysics, tweeted out an article by MarketRealist.com explaining her proposal to cancel all rent and mortgage payments due since April 1 and have the government reimburse landlords and mortgage holders for their lost income.
She apparently didn’t bother to read the article, which went on to detail some of the many problems and disastrous unintended consequences of such a bill. I'm linking to this story so she can find out now, just in case she subscribes to my newsletter.
Media Bias Is As Obvious As “A-B-C”
By Mike Huckabee
Remember back in March when we shut everything in the world down to “flatten the curve” so we’d be able to open everything back up by Easter? I get it that we’re told to “listen to the scientists!” but it gets hard to do when the scientists themselves don’t agree and when sometimes they tell us something that they totally reverse a short time later. Early on, we were implored to NOT wear a mask. I remember Dr. Anthony Fauci, who was considered the expert on all things Covid and the Surgeon General speaking at a press conference urging that only medical professionals wear a mask. Remember we were told that it was very dangerous for us to wear a mask if we weren’t medical professionals because we’d be more likely to touch our faces and if we wore a mask, we would DIE!
We were told to disinfectant everything we touched because the virus lingered for days on surfaces of the things we touch.
Somehow, we were told it would be safe to go to Walmart or the supermarket, but if we went to a small boutique where only a couple of people were in the store, we would surely DIE!
Churches closed, but casinos didn’t. You were not permitted to get a mammogram or have a tooth pulled, but you were allowed to have an abortion because in someone’s twisted mind, an abortion was essential, but church or having a cancer screening wasn’t. We were told to stay away from large groups, but if we rioted or looted a store or tossed bricks at a police officer, we’d be safe. It was about that time that much of the general public realized that Covid was serious, but some of the political figures ordering us about as if we were 3 year olds in potty training were not trying to control a deadly disease as much as they were trying to control us.
We were ordered to wear the very masks that we had just weeks before been told would kill us. We were told no need to spray the groceries or boxes delivered with disinfectant as it wouldn’t be helpful after all.
Let me be clear-Covid is real and it kills people. I’ve lost several friends who have died from this hideous disease including a dear friend who is a pastor’s wife in Arkansas and who once worked for me as an executive assistant in the Governor’s office. Aaron Wilbourn, a wonderful Christian gentleman who was a great songwriter, performer, and comedian, and who was a regular in our theater to entertain our studio audience died a week ago from Covid. One of my own sons came down with it, and while having some symptoms of fever, sore throat, and cough, was able to get treated early and effectively and avoided a hospital stay or severe consequences and he was very careful to always mask, sanitize and social distance. He had to isolate away from his 3 children and pregnant wife to avoid exposing them.
When it comes to the seriousness of Covid, I don’t believe many of the politicians who order the rest of us to avoid travel or socialization but who go out and eat, get haircuts, travel for vacation and even show up for big events. I don’t need their hypocritical demands. I will wear a mask, avoid personal contact, wash my hands and keep distances because I believe what’s happened to my friends even if I DON’T believe what hypocritical officials say since they themselves don’t believe anything they say. The cases and deaths this week are higher than they have ever been. Don’t be foolish or careless. But next time you get to vote, don’t vote for mayors and governors who tell you to do what they are unwilling to do. They think we’re peasants and they are princes and princesses. They aren’t. But even the peasants have the power to rise up and demand that leaders live by the same rules they impose on the rest of us.
Black university officials at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are under fire after it was revealed that they paid Robin DiAngelo, white radical and author of the book “White Fragility,” $12,750 to speak at a “diversity event” while paying the event’s black speaker, Austen Channing Brown, only $7,500.
On the bright side, it sounds as if students actually did learn something for once about “white privilege.” They learned that it’s a concept that’s made some white leftists quite wealthy.
From The “Who Coulda Seen It Coming?” Desk
In Minneapolis, where city leaders sided with rioters over cops, drove their officers into resigning and retiring, and thought defunding the police department was a smart idea, violent carjackings are up 537 percent from this time last year. In one incident, an elderly woman was struck in the head. In another, the would-be victim sped off, but the carjackers fired three bullets into her car, traumatizing her. And carjacking is just one of many categories of crime that are way up.
Surprisingly, replacing police with social workers doesn’t seem to be working. The 100% Republican-free city council assured us that a “holistic approach” would work better than just having a bunch of cops enforce the law. I assume that “holistic” refers to all the bullet holes in that woman’s car.
"Tax the rich"
It’s often been said that one of the hallmarks of socialism is that only the very rich can afford it. In that spirit, for the socialist on your Christmas…sorry, “winter holiday” gift list, Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez’s online merchandise store is offering a “Tax The Rich” sweatshirt for only $58.
You’ll be pleased to hear that it’s “union printed” and “gender neutral.” You might be less pleased to learn that if you can afford $58 for a sweatshirt, then you are in the income bracket that “Democratic” socialists classify as the “rich” who should be taxed more.
