Texas Democrats Are On The Run Again

By Mike Huckabee

Texas Democrat legislators once again fled Austin to try to prevent a special session quorum and block passage of an election integrity bill. As usual, they claim (I’ll use the media’s favorite phrase here, only accurately for once: “without evidence”) that laws that ensure an honest election somehow suppress the votes of minorities and the disabled. This is a childish delaying tactic that won’t work in the long run.

https://redstate.com/bonchie/2021/07/12/texas-democrats-decide-to-play-a-ridiculous-game-of-chicken-they-cant-win-n409932

Gov. Greg Abbott, who’s had a bellyful of childish, lawless Democrats lately, warned that there will be consequences, including arresting them the second they return to Texas and hauling them back to Austin to do their jobs. Although I think it would be more appropriate, and funnier, if they tried to return to Texas and were blocked from entering by the Border Patrol. Come to think of it, now’s a good time to extend that wall all the way around Texas.

https://www.westernjournal.com/texas-gov-abbott-democrats-fled-block-voting-bill-will-arrested-step-back-state/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

VP Kamala Harris put out an offensively clueless tweet, comparing the runaway Democrats to the brave civil rights activists who “fought and died for our right to vote.”

https://redstate.com/nick-arama/2021/07/12/kamala-should-get-all-the-pinocchios-for-description-of-runaway-texas-dems-n410027

(A.) Those civil rights pioneers weren’t fighting for the right to vote two, three or four times in the same election.

(B.) The only chance these Texas Democrats have of dying is if they’re shot by criminals thanks to the incompetent Democrat mayor of Washington, DC.

My Two Cents: If you don’t want to do your job of representing your constituents, then resign immediately. Also, why are these people being treated as heroes by DC Democrats? Aren’t those the same Democrats who’ve been demanding an end to the Senate filibuster because anything that allows a minority to thwart the will of the majority is an “assault on democracy”? Or does that only apply when they’re in the majority (never mind; we all know the answer to that question.)

At least the US Senate is evenly tied. In Texas, Republicans outnumber Democrats in the state Senate by 18-13 and in the House by 83-67. Talk about thwarting the will of the majority! If the Democrats keep going the way they are, it might not be long before their absence won’t even prevent a quorum.


Lawsuit Tossed

By Mike Huckabee

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals threw out a lawsuit by a former music director against a Roman Catholic Church in Chicago. He sued the church for employment discrimination for firing him for violating church doctrine by planning to enter into a same-sex marriage.

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/tyler-o-neil/2021/07/12/catholic-church-does-not-have-to-allow-same-sex-marriage-among-the-clergy-court-rules-n1461186

The church argued that employees who select and perform elements of the worship service are ministers of the faith, and under the ministerial exception, churches have a First Amendment right not to be forced to hire ministers who do not uphold the church’s beliefs themselves.

The ruling was correct, but the disturbing part is the appeals court had to reverse a lower court ruling and a three-judge appeals court panel that went in the defendant’s favor. I don’t care how a judge personally feels about same-sex marriage, but anyone who seriously believes that the government has the power to order Catholic churches to hire music ministers whose personal lives are completely at odds with the church’s faith have no business being in any job that requires a nodding acquaintance with the Constitution.


Democrats Leave Andrew Sullivan Behind

By Mike Huckabee

Liberal writer Andrew Sullivan has a question for all the so-called “progressives” who keep accusing him of turning into a rightwinger and asking, “What happened to you?” That question is, “What happened to YOU?”

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson/2021/07/12/liberal-writer-to-progressives-what-happened-to-you-n2592345

Sullivan sounds like the liberal counterpart to Ronald Reagan, who famously said that he didn’t leave the Democratic Party, it left him. The Democrats have now moved so far to the extreme left that they’ve even left Andrew Sullivan behind!

And this isn’t just Sullivan's own personal experience: at the link, check out the charts tracking surveys that disprove the canard that it’s Republicans who have moved to the “extreme” right. On most issues, conservatives have remained remarkably consistent. The right just appears to be moving further right to Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) because they are moving so rapidly to the far left they’re about to go careening over the edge. Let’s just pray they can be removed from power before they pull the rest of us over with them.


New Study Undermines Democrats' Claim

By Mike Huckabee

A new study in the journal Injury Epidemiology undermines the Democrats’ claim that a surge in purchases of guns fueled the surge in non-domestic firearms violence in 2020.

https://www.westernjournal.com/new-study-undermines-democrats-favorite-gun-control-narrative/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

You could make the argument that the forced lockdowns and their resultant joblessness, isolation and depression might have fueled more violence. But the increase in homicides and other serious gun violence wasn’t because of so many Americans buying guns legally, as some politicians are trying to claim. It was attributable almost entirely to the increase in illegal gun carrying.

In short, it wasn’t the bad Democrat policy of lockdowns that resulted in more legal gun sales that caused more gun violence. It was the bad Democrat policies of defunding police and coddling criminals that led more law-abiding citizens to arm themselves legally because of all the criminals with illegal weapons running amuck.

Democrats are right: it is good to figure out the root cause of problems.


Strategy Memo Warns Democrats

By Mike Huckabee

Politico obtained a strategy memo by a pro-Biden Super PAC warning that focus groups show dire tidings for Democrats in the 2022 midterm elections.

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/stacey-lennox/2021/07/12/pro-biden-super-pac-has-a-dire-warning-for-democrats-ahead-of-crucial-midterms-n1461103

The focus groups found that voters don’t like rampant crime and defunding police; they don’t understand why we need to stimulate the economy by blowing trillions of dollars on Democrat wish list items dubbed “infrastructure” when the economy is doing fine wherever it’s allowed to reopen; and even Democrat voters couldn’t name a single Biden Administration accomplishment. Well, that’s understandable.

This article also touches on something I’ve often written about: that all current so-called “progressive” policies are just attempts to resuscitate terrible ideas from the dim past that failed miserably, from socialism to segregation. This article spotlights the Dems’ “PRO-Act,” the forced unionization bill that would enrich their union boss supporters while destroying freelance and contract jobs, and the Green New Deal that promises countless good-paying “green” jobs.

As noted by Stacey Lennox, this is an attempt to revert the dynamic 21st century gig economy back into an outdated model of big unions and government make-work jobs that failed to end the Depression when it was tried in the 1930s. It’s yet another reason why “progressives” should more accurately be called “regressives.”


A Court Victory Against Twitter

By Mike Huckabee

James O’Keefe of Project Veritas just shocked Twitter by scoring a court victory. He’s suing them for defamation and permanently suspending his account on false grounds. Twitter tried to get the case moved from New York to California, where friendly courts routinely dismiss lawsuits against Big Tech companies, by claiming he just wanted money and would push for more than $75,000 in damages to punish Twitter. It didn’t work.

https://www.projectveritas.com/news/okeefe-v-twitter-legal-victory-defeats-attempt-to-transfer-case-to-friendly/

O’Keefe’s attorney made it clear to the court that he wasn’t after money, he was after the truth (a concept Twitter’s executives probably can’t fathom.) He has no intention of demanding more money; he wants discovery so that he can see the communications that led to his groundless ban and the defamatory comments about him, and he wants to depose Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and other executives under oath. That may all happen…in New York, where the lawsuit stays.

    What a sorry third world country we are becoming. With RINOS and Marxists colluding they will make us the poorest nation by year's end if people continue to give up their God given rights and worship the god of Marx- Satan.
    I read how preachers used to teach a proper Biblical approach to government and good leadership. I seen many have become swamp critters. Why I had to switch to independent. They hate MAGA because it stands for what made us better than others.
    Washington warned us about foreign involvement. We have squandered all our good will because many decided to become empire builders. The Middle Eastern nations are tribal, not given to a love of a Republican government.
    Now even the military has been undermined.
    Only God can heal us now.
    The best I see us if the government is kept fighting lawsuits. Just like the left tried to hamstring Trump
    His biggest mistake was appointing RINOs to high positions. Some, like Rick Grenell were good. Most, like Barr and SCOTUS turned tail and running from their duties
    Where are the men and women of real honor?

    I totally agree with the writer who welcomed you back. It was like something was missing for a week. Where else am I to get the truth and real news news about what is going on in our country.

    While feeling sorry for myself at being assumed to be racist because Imam white, I realized it is so much worse for people of color who are assumed by these elitists to be incapable of getting ID. I wonder if anyone on the left has thought to ask minorities what they think about running their own lives.

    If someone comes to my door regarding the Covid vaccine, they will be politely told that I do not discuss my medical particulars with strangers. I would love to see the government arrest an 81 year old law abiding woman, with an arthritic condition, for not confessing to having had the shots. I am not one to believe in suing for every little thing but that would be a humdinger of a suit and a good story for you.

    I think I misquoted in my earlier comment about Biden & the Civil War. It was actually in reference to what Biden said, "Republican governors are enacting Jim Crow “voter suppression” laws in states across the country. Biden also warned voter integrity measures like voter identification and bans on ballot harvesting are a threat not seen since the Civil War." This topic will continue from now until 2022 & 2024. Most times the news we all need to see & hear becomes over whelming & depressing. Harris has to be the worst VP so far.
    Maybe there were others before my time. The dems are destroying our Constitution! They are destroying our country with all this WOKNESS. They are corrupting our country from all sides. God save us & help us.

    Hello Mike,

    I thought the Democrats believed in Global Warming, oh shoot sorry Climate change, oh sorry changing weather patterns, or whatever the new fake name the use. How can the Democrats be so hypocritical and why do they lie about the great GA, TX and all other states new election integrity laws. I do not see how anyone with a brain cannot see how the Democrats lie, how evil they are and why when Democrats get into power inflation rises drastically and we start to see more violence and active shooters. All I can say is the Democrats seem to have a free pass or direct access to Satan himself... Please God forgive the Liberal Democrats for being so evil, hateful, racist, anti-American and especially why they do ot live by your ways God!!

  • Joyce F Birch

    07/13/2021 08:40 PM

    We are in a very dark place as a country. Yes, we are still better off than other countries, but this is the United States of America & the dismantling of our government is beyond any one of us every imagined. What is wrong with Biden to compare the problems to the Civil War? We are being torn upside down & inside out by this far-left controlled government. WHERE'S ARE THE REPUBLICIANS?? Look at Cuba! Look at Afghanistan! Look at China! Look at South Africa! Look at Texas! We are in an abyss as stated by Mark Levin.

    Maybe there were others before my time. The dems are destroying our Constitution! They are destroying our country with all this WOKNESS. They are corrupting our country from all sides. God save us & help us.

    Hello Mike,

    I thought the Democrats believed in Global Warming, oh shoot sorry Climate change, oh sorry changing weather patterns, or whatever the new fake name the use. How can the Democrats be so hypocritical and why do they lie about the great GA, TX and all other states new election integrity laws. I do not see how anyone with a brain cannot see how the Democrats lie, how evil they are and why when Democrats get into power inflation rises drastically and we start to see more violence and active shooters. All I can say is the Democrats seem to have a free pass or direct access to Satan himself... Please God forgive the Liberal Democrats for being so evil, hateful, racist, anti-American and especially why they do ot live by your ways God!!

    We are in a very dark place as a country. Yes, we are still better off than other countries, but this is the United States of America & the dismantling of our government is beyond any one of us every imagined. What is wrong with Biden to compare the problems to the Civil War? We are being torn upside down & inside out by this far-left controlled government. WHERE'S ARE THE REPUBLICIANS?? Look at Cuba! Look at Afghanistan! Look at China! Look at South Africa! Look at Texas! We are in an abyss as stated by Mark Levin.

    Texas Democrats Are On The Run Again

    By Mike Huckabee

    Texas Democrat legislators once again fled Austin to try to prevent a special session quorum and block passage of an election integrity bill. As usual, they claim (I’ll use the media’s favorite phrase here, only accurately for once: “without evidence”) that laws that ensure an honest election somehow suppress the votes of minorities and the disabled. This is a childish delaying tactic that won’t work in the long run.

    https://redstate.com/bonchie/2021/07/12/texas-democrats-decide-to-play-a-ridiculous-game-of-chicken-they-cant-win-n409932

    Gov. Greg Abbott, who’s had a bellyful of childish, lawless Democrats lately, warned that there will be consequences, including arresting them the second they return to Texas and hauling them back to Austin to do their jobs. Although I think it would be more appropriate, and funnier, if they tried to return to Texas and were blocked from entering by the Border Patrol. Come to think of it, now’s a good time to extend that wall all the way around Texas.

    https://www.westernjournal.com/texas-gov-abbott-democrats-fled-block-voting-bill-will-arrested-step-back-state/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

    VP Kamala Harris put out an offensively clueless tweet, comparing the runaway Democrats to the brave civil rights activists who “fought and died for our right to vote.”

    https://redstate.com/nick-arama/2021/07/12/kamala-should-get-all-the-pinocchios-for-description-of-runaway-texas-dems-n410027

    (A.) Those civil rights pioneers weren’t fighting for the right to vote two, three or four times in the same election.

    (B.) The only chance these Texas Democrats have of dying is if they’re shot by criminals thanks to the incompetent Democrat mayor of Washington, DC.

    My Two Cents: If you don’t want to do your job of representing your constituents, then resign immediately. Also, why are these people being treated as heroes by DC Democrats? Aren’t those the same Democrats who’ve been demanding an end to the Senate filibuster because anything that allows a minority to thwart the will of the majority is an “assault on democracy”? Or does that only apply when they’re in the majority (never mind; we all know the answer to that question.)

    At least the US Senate is evenly tied. In Texas, Republicans outnumber Democrats in the state Senate by 18-13 and in the House by 83-67. Talk about thwarting the will of the majority! If the Democrats keep going the way they are, it might not be long before their absence won’t even prevent a quorum.


    Lawsuit Tossed

    By Mike Huckabee

    The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals threw out a lawsuit by a former music director against a Roman Catholic Church in Chicago. He sued the church for employment discrimination for firing him for violating church doctrine by planning to enter into a same-sex marriage.

    https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/tyler-o-neil/2021/07/12/catholic-church-does-not-have-to-allow-same-sex-marriage-among-the-clergy-court-rules-n1461186

    The church argued that employees who select and perform elements of the worship service are ministers of the faith, and under the ministerial exception, churches have a First Amendment right not to be forced to hire ministers who do not uphold the church’s beliefs themselves.

    The ruling was correct, but the disturbing part is the appeals court had to reverse a lower court ruling and a three-judge appeals court panel that went in the defendant’s favor. I don’t care how a judge personally feels about same-sex marriage, but anyone who seriously believes that the government has the power to order Catholic churches to hire music ministers whose personal lives are completely at odds with the church’s faith have no business being in any job that requires a nodding acquaintance with the Constitution.


    Democrats Leave Andrew Sullivan Behind

    By Mike Huckabee

    Liberal writer Andrew Sullivan has a question for all the so-called “progressives” who keep accusing him of turning into a rightwinger and asking, “What happened to you?” That question is, “What happened to YOU?”

    https://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson/2021/07/12/liberal-writer-to-progressives-what-happened-to-you-n2592345

    Sullivan sounds like the liberal counterpart to Ronald Reagan, who famously said that he didn’t leave the Democratic Party, it left him. The Democrats have now moved so far to the extreme left that they’ve even left Andrew Sullivan behind!

    And this isn’t just Sullivan's own personal experience: at the link, check out the charts tracking surveys that disprove the canard that it’s Republicans who have moved to the “extreme” right. On most issues, conservatives have remained remarkably consistent. The right just appears to be moving further right to Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) because they are moving so rapidly to the far left they’re about to go careening over the edge. Let’s just pray they can be removed from power before they pull the rest of us over with them.


    New Study Undermines Democrats' Claim

    By Mike Huckabee

    A new study in the journal Injury Epidemiology undermines the Democrats’ claim that a surge in purchases of guns fueled the surge in non-domestic firearms violence in 2020.

    https://www.westernjournal.com/new-study-undermines-democrats-favorite-gun-control-narrative/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

    You could make the argument that the forced lockdowns and their resultant joblessness, isolation and depression might have fueled more violence. But the increase in homicides and other serious gun violence wasn’t because of so many Americans buying guns legally, as some politicians are trying to claim. It was attributable almost entirely to the increase in illegal gun carrying.

    In short, it wasn’t the bad Democrat policy of lockdowns that resulted in more legal gun sales that caused more gun violence. It was the bad Democrat policies of defunding police and coddling criminals that led more law-abiding citizens to arm themselves legally because of all the criminals with illegal weapons running amuck.

    Democrats are right: it is good to figure out the root cause of problems.


    Strategy Memo Warns Democrats

    By Mike Huckabee

    Politico obtained a strategy memo by a pro-Biden Super PAC warning that focus groups show dire tidings for Democrats in the 2022 midterm elections.

    https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/stacey-lennox/2021/07/12/pro-biden-super-pac-has-a-dire-warning-for-democrats-ahead-of-crucial-midterms-n1461103

    The focus groups found that voters don’t like rampant crime and defunding police; they don’t understand why we need to stimulate the economy by blowing trillions of dollars on Democrat wish list items dubbed “infrastructure” when the economy is doing fine wherever it’s allowed to reopen; and even Democrat voters couldn’t name a single Biden Administration accomplishment. Well, that’s understandable.

    This article also touches on something I’ve often written about: that all current so-called “progressive” policies are just attempts to resuscitate terrible ideas from the dim past that failed miserably, from socialism to segregation. This article spotlights the Dems’ “PRO-Act,” the forced unionization bill that would enrich their union boss supporters while destroying freelance and contract jobs, and the Green New Deal that promises countless good-paying “green” jobs.

    As noted by Stacey Lennox, this is an attempt to revert the dynamic 21st century gig economy back into an outdated model of big unions and government make-work jobs that failed to end the Depression when it was tried in the 1930s. It’s yet another reason why “progressives” should more accurately be called “regressives.”


    A Court Victory Against Twitter

    By Mike Huckabee

    James O’Keefe of Project Veritas just shocked Twitter by scoring a court victory. He’s suing them for defamation and permanently suspending his account on false grounds. Twitter tried to get the case moved from New York to California, where friendly courts routinely dismiss lawsuits against Big Tech companies, by claiming he just wanted money and would push for more than $75,000 in damages to punish Twitter. It didn’t work.

    https://www.projectveritas.com/news/okeefe-v-twitter-legal-victory-defeats-attempt-to-transfer-case-to-friendly/

    O’Keefe’s attorney made it clear to the court that he wasn’t after money, he was after the truth (a concept Twitter’s executives probably can’t fathom.) He has no intention of demanding more money; he wants discovery so that he can see the communications that led to his groundless ban and the defamatory comments about him, and he wants to depose Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and other executives under oath. That may all happen…in New York, where the lawsuit stays.

      What a sorry third world country we are becoming. With RINOS and Marxists colluding they will make us the poorest nation by year's end if people continue to give up their God given rights and worship the god of Marx- Satan.
      I read how preachers used to teach a proper Biblical approach to government and good leadership. I seen many have become swamp critters. Why I had to switch to independent. They hate MAGA because it stands for what made us better than others.
      Washington warned us about foreign involvement. We have squandered all our good will because many decided to become empire builders. The Middle Eastern nations are tribal, not given to a love of a Republican government.
      Now even the military has been undermined.
      Only God can heal us now.
      The best I see us if the government is kept fighting lawsuits. Just like the left tried to hamstring Trump
      His biggest mistake was appointing RINOs to high positions. Some, like Rick Grenell were good. Most, like Barr and SCOTUS turned tail and running from their duties
      Where are the men and women of real honor?

      I totally agree with the writer who welcomed you back. It was like something was missing for a week. Where else am I to get the truth and real news news about what is going on in our country.

      While feeling sorry for myself at being assumed to be racist because Imam white, I realized it is so much worse for people of color who are assumed by these elitists to be incapable of getting ID. I wonder if anyone on the left has thought to ask minorities what they think about running their own lives.

      If someone comes to my door regarding the Covid vaccine, they will be politely told that I do not discuss my medical particulars with strangers. I would love to see the government arrest an 81 year old law abiding woman, with an arthritic condition, for not confessing to having had the shots. I am not one to believe in suing for every little thing but that would be a humdinger of a suit and a good story for you.

      I think I misquoted in my earlier comment about Biden & the Civil War. It was actually in reference to what Biden said, "Republican governors are enacting Jim Crow “voter suppression” laws in states across the country. Biden also warned voter integrity measures like voter identification and bans on ballot harvesting are a threat not seen since the Civil War." This topic will continue from now until 2022 & 2024. Most times the news we all need to see & hear becomes over whelming & depressing. Harris has to be the worst VP so far.
