Biden's new motto: "Lower your expectations"

By Mike Huckabee

The Trump Administration’s motto was “Make America Great Again.” The Biden Administration finally has one of its own (no, not “Build Back Better;” that was always just a phony label for more tax-and-spend lunacy.) The phrase that will become synonymous with the Biden (four) years is: “Lower Your Expectations!”

The Biden palace guard media aren’t even trying to finesse that message, they’re just coming right out and lecturing Americans to stop expecting success, greatness, abundance or even a baseline level of competence. That message is being sent out (likely straight off the DNC email blast) via such outlets as MSNBC and the Washington Post. Lower your expectations, America!

Stop expecting that there will be Christmas gifts or electronics or even food or toilet paper on store shelves, just like you had to stop expecting that cops might come if you called 911 in a Democrat-run city, or that the government might do something to prevent waves of illegal migrants from flowing across the border. Stop expecting that, even if you do find some product you need, you’ll be able to afford it (Procter & Gamble just warned that prices on household staples will be going up week after week, just as gas prices and home power bills already are.)

Those things are simply inevitable. There’s nothing anyone can do about them. Well, nobody who’s in office at the moment can, or will.

Unfortunately, not all Americans have gotten the message that this is the “new normal.” Some are actually upset that store shelves are thinning out while prices are skyrocketing.

If they think it’s tough buying groceries, they’d better not complain to the White House about not being able to find a treadmill. That's the kind of “high class problem” that our bubble-dwelling “leaders” seem to think ungrateful Americans are whining about.

If it’s any comfort to them, they should know that they don’t need to urge me to lower my expectations. I lowered them severely the minute I heard the results of the 2020 election.

Democrats want to slash border security spending

By Mike Huckabee

The Washington Free Beacon’s Joseph Simonson examined the Senate Democrats’ proposed budget bill for Customs and Border Protection and found that, in a time of unprecedented illegal immigration, it would slash the budget for border security by half a billion dollars.

While it would cut funding for enforcement and migrant detention centers, it would increase funding for building new migrant processing centers along the border to reduce migrant time in custody. Oh well, good. As long as we’re going to continue letting them swarm in by the thousands, we certainly wouldn’t want to slow them down in any way.

McAuliffe's campaign appears to be faltering right before the finish line

By Mike Huckabee

You know that Democrat Terry McAuliffe’s campaign for Governor of Virginia is not going well when he starts accusing his Republican opponent Glenn Youngkin of “taking his words out of context” by quoting him directly (yes, McAuliffe really did say he didn’t think parents should have a say in what schools teach their children.) He tried refuting that by pointing out that in his previous stint as Governor, he spent a billion dollars on public schools – the same public schools that are now trying to silence parents that criticize them, so I’m not sure what that proves.

Then you know it’s really going badly when McAuliffe storms out of a live TV interview after 10 minutes, snapping that the interviewer should have “asked better questions.”

As noted at the link, before McAuliffe’s televised meltdown, the interviewer asked him about schools, parents’ rights, crime and public safety, topics I'd assume voters might be interested in.

While this is good for Youngkin’s campaign (and one poll shows him a point ahead), don’t count on it sinking McAuliffe. Virginia residents are used to awful Democrat leadership crushing the rights of the people, and there’s a good chance McAuliffe will be elected to impose more of it.

That’s largely because the state’s politics have been skewed by a massive influx of liberal federal government trough feeders in the DC suburbs, which are now among the wealthiest communities in America, a fact that would horrify the Founding Fathers. And Democrats are already desperately trying to change Virginia election laws even after voting has begun (sound familiar?)

Still, with Youngkin so close in the polls and McAuliffe repeatedly shooting himself in the foot over an issue like parental rights in schools that cuts across party lines, the GOP might actually have a chance. So if you are in Virginia, don’t count on Youngkin winning, but don’t despair, either. Just hope for the best, get to the polls and take as many Republicans as possible with you.

Wokeness spreads into our national parks

By Mike Huckabee

These days, you’d expect to find a giant load of politically-correct, racist “anti-racist” buzzwords and speech policing on college campuses, but in our national parks? The National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA) has issued a language guidebook for parks and recreation professionals, and it spews wokeness like Old Faithful spews steam.

There’s so much cringing white guilt and self-hatred for our own country (I’m surprised they even like our national parks) that I won’t try recapping this thick, rich batter of leftist linguistic goo here. Just click the link to Redstate, but brace yourself first. I will mention two new ones, though:

They tell people not to use the offensive term “alien,” even in reference to plants. I guess alien plants are very sensitive about what you call them. Heaven forbid you should call them an “invasive species”!

And now we even have to avoid using the word “Americans” when talking about the communities US parks serve because some people in those communities aren’t US citizens and might be offended. I’ll bet most of them wish they were US citizens, but after reading this and seeing how insane some Americans are becoming, they might rethink that.

By the way, I apologize if I offended the people behind this guidebook by what I called them in that last sentence. Not “insane,” but “Americans.” They might be offended by “Americans,” but “insane” is a given.

More COVID deaths under Biden than Trump

By Mike Huckabee

Remember when Trump was in office, and candidate Joe Biden blamed him personally for every COVID death in America? Recall that Trump was a monster who just didn't care if people died.

Trump was in office during the beginning of the pandemic, when we were trying to get a handle on this new disease, we had no vaccines and didn’t know how to treat it. Biden came into office with multiple vaccines (developed under Trump, although he refuses to acknowledge that) and far better understanding of how to treat the disease. Yet even though Trump dealt with the pandemic for 10 months and Biden has been in office for only eight months, there have now been more COVID deaths under Biden than under Trump, according to Johns Hopkins University.

And who does the Biden White House blame for those deaths? Why, unvaccinated people, of course.

But if that’s true, then shouldn’t most of the blame go to people who spread distrust of the vaccines? And who might that be, hmm?...

    Gov. Huckabee: The American people now know better thanks to the presidency of Donald Trump, we know there is no reason for us to go backward to the Obama years of low expectations under the Biden administration. Trump was forward thinking, optimistic, addressed problems, gave us a better way to live, a better country, and high expectations for everyone, making clear the best leadership for people and country.

    How can you not lower your expectations, can't afford (financially) not to. NEVER heard President Trump say we should "lower our expectations". I'm with you Governor Mike, my heart sunk when I saw the vote (?) results.

    I will not lower my expectations. I expect God to move. I expect a great reset (led by God not the left). I expect revival to break out in this nation and throughout the world.

    Raise your expectations and act accordingly.
