Our prayers and condolences today for the family of British Conservative Parliament Member David Amess, who was brutally murdered Friday when he was speaking at a church in Essex. A man entered and stabbed him multiple times.

Police have a 25-year-old suspect in custody. They believe he acted alone. His name wasn’t released, but the murder has been declared a terrorist incident and is being investigated for potential links to Islamic extremism.

Sanders harassment of Manchin hurts his cause

By Mike Huckabee

You would think that after one of his rabid followers nearly murdered Rep. Steve Scalise at a charity baseball game, that Sen. Bernie Sanders would have learned not to try to gin up harassment of his political opponents. These are, after all, the same leftists who are trying to blame the January 6th Capitol violence on former President Trump because he made a speech in which he called for peaceful protest.

Yet Sanders refused to sign a letter from fellow Senators condemning the nasty harassment of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema for not supporting the left’s $3.5 trillion spending orgy bill unless the letter also contained language criticizing her for not voting the way he wants (mighty big of you there, Bernie.) And now, he’s written an op-ed aimed at West Virginia voters, urging them to put pressure on their Senator, Joe Manchin, to force him to support it.

It was the typical Sanders class envy/socialist blather, claiming this spending (which he wanted to be $6 trillion) would help the working families of West Virginia. (It would somehow do that by putting the energy industries they depend on to feed their families out of business while vastly expanding government, raising taxes, boosting inflation and enriching Democrat cronies such as unions and the “green energy” industry – but I digress.) Sanders also said polls show “overwhelming support” for this bill, which means nothing unless they were taken in West Virginia, which Manchin represents (that’s how a republic works, Bernie.) And he didn’t mention that those polls also show most people don’t know what’s in it. Here’s what’s really in it, if you’re interested:

Leftists are apparently so used to people caving in immediately every time they scream, “I’m triggered!” that Sanders and others of his ilk really believe these harassment tactics will work. So far, they only seem to be making Sinema and Manchin furious and less likely to compromise with people who are trying to bully them into submission, as you can see from Manchin’s blistering response to Sanders at the link above.

In one short, magnificent paragraph, Manchin skinned Sanders alive as an out-of-stater trying to tell West Virginians what’s good for them without knowing anything about them (to be fair, that’s what “Democratic” socialists do to everybody), gave him lessons in both economics and Senate math, doubled down on his opposition to “reckless expansion of government programs,” and finished with this haymaker: “No op-ed from a self-declared Independent socialist is going to change that.”

Nice touch, reminding West Virginians, who voted for Trump over Biden by 2-1, that Sanders isn’t even a Democrat, he’s an out-and-out socialist.

I doubt that the overaged spoiled brats of the left will learn from this that their public tantrums are not going to force Sens. Manchin and Sinema to buy them a big bag of candy. They’ll probably keep doing it. And while that’s childish and reprehensible, if it makes the two Senators even more resolute about saying no, for once, the left’s utter inability to learn from their mistakes could work out to America’s benefit.

“Thank Heaven for judges”

By Mike Huckabee

As a conservative, I never thought I’d be able to say “Thank Heaven for judges,” but we’ve actually seen a few recently who’ve stepped up to save the Constitution and take a stand for the justice, freedom and rationality that went out the window when Democrats took over the other two branches of government.

For instance, US District Judge Royce Lamberth ordered the director of the D.C. Department of Corrections and the warden of the D.C. Jail held in contempt for violating the civil rights of a January 6th Capitol riot defendant.

The defendant, Proud Boys member Christopher Worrell, broke his wrist in May, was recommended for surgery in June, but still hasn’t received it, nor has the jail complied with the judge’s order to turn over his medical notes. The judge said, “It’s clear to me the civil rights of the defendant were violated by the D.C. Department of Corrections. I don’t know if it’s because he’s a January 6 defendant or not.” I assume he’s just being judicious. I think we know the answer to that one.

If he were a leftist protester who’d attacked cops and set fire to a federal building, he probably would have long ago been released without charges. Just like if he were part of the two protests that took place this week in Washington in which leftists invaded and occupied federal buildings where officials were trying to conduct government business and were treated as if they were merely unexpected house guests and not “INSURRECTIONISTS!” Instapundit has that story, along with a meme that sums up the Democrats’ two-tiered “justice” system perfectly.

And in a semi-victory, Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller Jr., who was slapped with six charges and jailed for nine days for calling on top brass to take accountability for the disastrous Afghanistan pullout, was sentenced Friday. The prosecutors were pressing the judge to throw the book at him, but Scheller pleaded guilty to six misdemeanor counts and, in a surprise ruling, the judge sentenced him to receive a letter of reprimand and forfeit $5000 for one month’s pay.

I think he was treated abominably, but there are military rules against publicly badmouthing your superior officers, no matter how much they deserve it, so you could argue that this was a reasonable level of punishment.

Now, since I’m not in the military, I’ll say it on his behalf: When are the top brass going to take accountability for the disastrous pullout of Afghanistan? And let’s make it clear up front: a letter of reprimand and a month’s salary will NOT do. When will they resign or face charges?

Virginia School Board Outrage Updates

By Mike Huckabee

The liberal national media are trying desperately to ignore the bombshell revelations coming out of Loudoun County, Virginia, but word is spreading and parents are standing up and demanding justice. First, we learned that the dad who was handcuffed at a school board meeting and smeared as a “domestic terrorist” was angry because the board denied that his daughter had been brutally raped by a skirt-wearing boy in the girls’ restroom. Then it was reported that the same boy had sexually assaulted another student on school property five months earlier, and that had allegedly been covered up, too.

Now, the Daily Wire reports that there were multiple alleged sexual assaults in the schools dating back years, and that school officials failed to report them, in violation of state law.

And one school board member has now resigned, while the superintendent is still resisting demands for his resignation. But he did apologize for failing to keep kids safe and vowed to do better. This gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, “Too little too late.”

    Just a correction, as the murder of Sir David Amess wasn’t when he was speaking at a church. He was holding a regular Constituency ‘surgery’ where people book up to speak to him as their representative about issues of concern. His murderer made such an appointment.

    THAT is HILARIOUS!! As you rinos and jackasses live under a completely different set of rules than you make us peasants live under NOTHING will ever happen AND you don't have to take accountability for ANYTHING!!! AND you rinos allow the jackasses to make it worse EVERY DAY!!

    I wonder if the 2 bushes, maclame, rino paul ryan and the rest of the rinos are still proud that they kept the bad orange man from a second term and supported and voted for the creep and kameltoe ho!! And I wonder if they are proud of what they are allowing the jackasses to continue to do that they allowed odumbo to start. It actually began in bushes second term because he knew he couldn't be elected again and didn't give a shit what the jackasses were doing to ruin this country. AND during the first 2 years with Trump, the rinos fought him in everything he did no matter HOW they were helping the jackassed DESTROY America. This is totally out of control the you rinos do NOTHING to stop it. YOU ARE A DISGRACE!!! "how can you tell a politician is lying? Its lips are moving!!!!"

    General Miley did what he was ordered to do by his superior .
    That is all the slack I will give the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
    All of the Joint Chiefs knew what was going to happen to our Afghanistan allies.
    Thus not a one had enough of a backbone or integrity to resign, instead they carried out this
    disaster that is a continuing genocide of our allies.

    These liberal socialist Democrats are just using tactics that communist-controlled abuse-of-power leaders use to silence any voices that are in opposition of the controlling commies' leadership. Like Hitler, Lenin, Marx, Mao, etc., used to further their evil communist control.

    Dept. of Education has been doing this far longer than this year, but they have become more sinister, desperate, and dangerous, because they are trying their damnedest to make parents non-essential in their own children's upbringing, to allow the communist govt. to control children's minds to make them into another anti-American commodity to use against American culture, freedom, and values. Just like China and other communist countries do to use children as their unassuming soldiers to attack from within. To make them domestic terrorists against anyone who is in opposition of the way legal citizens are treated. Like the taliban does when they use children for suicide missions. It is all to do with killing America and making it another caliphate for the taliban's ruthless and evil takeover of all nations on earth.

    The best thing that America can do for now, to save our children is to definitely take them out of public schools and find the money to either home school them or to put them in private schools that don't get blackmailed by the pro-liberal, pro-socialist, pro-communist, and anti-American systematic racism, by taking school aid from the corrupt govt. to promote their anti-American propaganda.
    (Look how long, generations really, that the Amish culture has survived? They don't need federal govt. to tell them how to live from birth to death. They have followed God's teachings closer than other societies, and they are surviving fine and expanding.)

    The pandemic as bad as it was in 2020, did make parents realize just how bad the education is in public schools. It also caused more people to take control of their work life by working from home, and schooling from home that kept them safe from irrational bullies in school settings and work environments, that we all have faced one time or another, and it made people realize that they don't need unions to protect them. Anti-unionism is the best and realizing that unions hurt more than help workers. The only help the union bosses line their own pockets from union dues, which should be considered extortion, 'if you don't pay money (i.e. union dues), you get fired'. Gangs do that for 'protection money against businesses'. If you don't pay money for your protection, your business will get attacked by rioters and ruined. Is that what antifa and blm were really all about? And why the govt. didn't put a stop to it? They know it is wrong but let it happen anyway, because in a communist socialist's mind, capitalism is bad. Privately-owned businesses is competition against govt. controlled businesses. Most privately owned businesses don't have unions, but govt. controlled businesses ALL have to have unions. And which businesses have been targeted by rioters? Privately owned ones, not govt. owned ones.

    In my past career, I worked at Eastman Kodak Company in Rochester, NY, and they did not have unionized employees. But the 'climate control' commies, sponsored by the US Govt. Democrat Liberals, ruined that company by trying to say, 'it polluted the environment'. But Kodak did not. I worked in a dept. that followed all the govt. guidelines for soil remediation, and transportation, and also for coal transportation, etc., and Kodak was never in violation of that, so it was yet again, a set-up to ruin a privately owned company that actually did great work for govt. contracts. But the govt. couldn't stand for employees who worked there to be happy, so in the 1990's when Clinton was president and everything was beginning to be controlled by Democrats, and once 9/11 happened, Kodak began to lose business and go under because China and Mexico took over more and more film manu. business that was sub-standard compared to American made film products and safe environmental control, Kodak started to go out of business.

    It really hit once 9/11/01 happened, so that also makes me wonder if the enemies of America, inside the country and the taliban then, planned the attack but were disguised as executives who wanted to 'invest' in American companies, but their truth was to infect American companies with corruption and 'back-room deals' like Hunter Biden and Joe Biden did and still do now. It is all truly a cooperative conspiracy to totally erase American culture, history, values, traditions, etc., off the map by the global control of communist nations against America. And Biden admin. is saying it out loud now, not even hiding their conspiracy by calling it 'Build, Back, Better', but not for America, but for China, Iran, Taliban, Russia, etc., all the enemies of American freedom. And once the U.S. is bankrupt thanks to Biden and his coup conspirators, guess who will be the only nations able to bail out America, the CCP, Taliban, Russia, etc. Just like who bailed out the banking debacle, HSBC, a CCP controlled bank. Now it is cryptocurrency and bit-coin. They are just fake money, Big Tech conspiracy of computerized graphics to look like money.... but it isn't real. It is just fake imagery in holographic designs, computer generated, just images, and not tangible money. And what would happen if another electrical grid goes down like it did in NYS in the early 2000's? And like what just happened to Facebook recently? No one will be able to access their computers nor their 'cryptocurrency' and bit-coin money! Another Big Tech collusion with Biden's China connection. The collusion that HAS happened is still going on since the Obama years and it is getting deeper and more dangerous to get away from the fall-out from it for America. China's CCP is the cause of it all, and the real domestic terrorists are in the White House NOW!

    That is also why it is very important to start keeping real minted coins that say "In God We Trust", because they are the true tangible money that has real value. Paper money can be destroyed easily, but coins and minerals that make those coins, are real and can't be destroyed easily. If there is any land left that has mining mineral rights in it that private citizens own, because China bought it, through money laundering by Biden's admin., owns more than will ever be reported now. ( Or some other foreign national organization that hates America, like the taliban? maybe).

    Could also explain the overactive claims of 'climate change', that isn't true, but convenient to make people believe it, but is really just another cover-up by Biden and other liberal communists to keep all the best mining mineral land for themselves, to make their own money, and to totally ruin the American economy by monetary means too.

    Their cooperative CCP conspiracy pandemic started it last year, and the Democrat liberal communists want to continue the false narrative to give them more and more control over everything! And to use military force to keep everyone off their 'deeded land' that just so happens to be the best land rich with minerals for mining their own currency. Didn't Hitler do that with uranium and 'black water' lake ownership? Who do we know that sold uranium to Iran? Hillary Clinton, another American hater who is in the same camp as the corrupted government control freaks that Obama and Biden originated from, since the 60's. Hunter Biden is the next generation to continue the ruination of America from within. WE MUST stop him and his followers asap! We have to start our ruination of THEM next year, and be aggressive but smart about it! We have to hold THEM ACCOUNTABLE since no one else will! Same with antifa, blm, and now the taliban.

    Mike, I’m tired…. Specifically of the GOP/Conservative representation of the USA in Congress. It seems all Heck has been on the horizon for some time (10+ months), but I’m not hearing or seeing a cohesive messaging from that body, to the People, in terms that express the incredible devastation being wrought by the current administration. It would seem the 264 (well maybe 253) of these folks could find 1 or 2 topics they understand well, and translate that impending doom exceptionally well the the everyday (Mike Rowe like) citizens (and even non-citizens). And hammer that info EVERY day at EVERY media opportunity, and in info-mmercials. There is plenty of everyday evidence that the regular folk relate too, these Elected Representatives routinely have at their fingertips….. IT WOULD BE REASSURING TO SEE MORE PUSHBACK BY THE GOP+….just saying
