DAILY BIBLE VERSE
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
James 3:17 KJV
This isn't education, it is indoctrination
By Mike Huckabee
Last night, I was on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News, to comment on a cartoon lesson shown to first graders as young as four at an elite prep school in New York City.
I should warn you before you click that if you watch that clip, you will see the cartoon, which is about sexual subjects you might find quite inappropriate. It's a real conundrum: I hate linking to it because it’s too adult, but I have to report what's being shown to FOUR-YEAR-OLDS! At a school that charges parents $55,000 a year.
Why was I not surprised to learn that back in the 1970s, notorious pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was a teacher at that very school?
Sadly, this is only the tip of the iceberg. Schools are replacing education with indoctrination. It’s no wonder kids are doing so badly at math, science and reading. When you’re spending most of your day being taught to hate America, sexually pleasure yourself, celebrate the LBBTQ+ agenda and judge people by their skin color, who has time to learn anything else?
Parents have to become proactive and start speaking up against this, even if they’re afraid it will cause them to be ostracized by other, liberal parents. They might be surprised to discover how many other parents agree and would welcome someone taking the lead in speaking up. Even if they don’t, it’s better to take your kids out of these schools than to stay quiet and leave them there. Find a better school (that shouldn’t be hard), home-school them, or for $55,000 a year, I bet you could find a pretty decent tutor. Leaving them in these schools is tantamount to child abuse.
And as if children aren’t getting enough of this inappropriate indoctrination in schools, when they come home and turn on the TV, they get even more of it. To celebrate Pride Month, Nickelodeon is airing an episode of the young children’s cartoon show “Blue’s Clues and You” that includes a “Pride Parade” hosted by an animated version of drag performer Nina West of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” It features cute, colorful animals representing every sexual identity group, including “queer,” “bi,” “pan,” “ace” and “trans” (a cartoon beaver with scars on its chest, apparently from having its breasts surgically removed.) This is aimed at kindergarten children. I’ll bet some of you who are adults have never even heard of some of those particular sexual designations.
I’m linking to the Christian Post write-up of this because it was one of the few media outlets that has the video posted but that points out the shocking inappropriateness of it. Virtually every mainstream media write-up of it is overwhelmingly positive, with no concerns at all about how damaging it can be to push sexually explicit ideas at children who are too young and innocent to comprehend them.

In case you missed it, and no, there’s nothing funny about this story: Iran will soon be getting a new President. The nation President Biden thinks is reasonable enough that we can deal with them and send them piles of our money that won’t be spent on funding terrorism and advancing their nuclear weapons ambitions has decided that its next President will be Ebrahim Raisi, a hardline Muslim cleric who took part in the mass murder of more than 30,000 dissidents in 1988 and who opposes conciliation with the West. He’s currently the Chief Justice who recently sentenced Iranian wrestling champion Navid Afkari to be executed, like many others, for peaceful protest of the clerics’ regime.
Before you ask how the Iranian people could elect such a person as their leader, note that they had no say over it. Raisi is the choice of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the unelected members of the Guardian Council. As the linked story notes, they fear the rising opposition of the people to their brutal reign and want to make sure they keep the suppression turned up to 11.
I wish America were doing more to help the good people of Iran overthrow these murderous monsters, but that would require having an American President who recognizes Iran’s illegitimate leaders for what they are and who puts sanctions and pressure on them instead of trying to bribe and appease them into acting like civilized human beings with billions of dollars that they will undoubtedly use for more suppression of their own people and terrorism against Israel and throughout the world.
Or as the Democrats call that, “smart diplomacy.”
A New Hack
By Mike Huckabee
After a ransomware attack believed to have originated with Russian hackers shut down a major US oil pipeline, another such attack targeted Brazil-based JBS, the world’s largest meat packer and a major supplier of meat to the US. So brace for higher meat prices. Again, it’s suspected to have come out of Russia.
While the Biden Administration insists there’s no evidence the Russian government was involved, some foreign analysts believe that’s just “plausible deniability,” and that Vladimir Putin is letting Biden know, ahead of a June 16th summit meeting, that Russia is stronger and more capable of threatening the US than Biden wants to admit.
Now would be a good time to order our intelligence agencies to track down these hackers and to strengthen and protect our critical infrastructure. Instead, our intelligence agencies are monitoring the Facebook pages of Trump voters and “infrastructure” is being redefined as “anything Democrats want to throw a few trillion dollars at.”
It’s no wonder Putin feels that Russia can get away with anything and there will be no consequences other than Biden calling him names to George Stephanopoulos.
Kari Lake for Governor
By Mike Huckabee
Kari Lake was the longtime top-rated news anchor in Phoenix until she got so fed up with leftwing bias in the media that she resigned. Decrying the media’s slanted coverage and hostility to conservative viewpoints, she said, “Hypocrisy, double-standards, bias, misleading coverage are all commonplace in society and newsrooms.” Her video explaining her decision to end her two-decade career in TV news drew 1.6 million views online.
Well, now she has her sights set on a new career: Tuesday, she released a new video that you can see at the link, announcing her candidacy for Governor of Arizona.
She’s running on a platform that’s pro-business and border security and anti-cancel culture and Californication. She explained, “I am running for Governor of Arizona because I care too deeply about this state and the wonderful people who live here to sit on the sidelines and watch us adopt the same policies that left California in shambles. The Democrats around the country and in Arizona have gone CRAZY and if they win the Governor’s seat, they will turn us into California or worse. I want to see my kids remain here in Arizona … and I want my grandkids to be Arizonans.”
As a reminder that it’s not enough just to vote for a Republican but to choose the right Republican, the current Republican Governor of Arizona, Doug Ducey, vetoed 22 bills on Friday, including an election integrity measure to bar the mass mailing of ballots and a ban on racist Critical Race Theory training in government agencies.
Ducey argued that even though some of the bills he vetoed were good policy, “they can wait,” and he would refuse to sign any more bills until the legislature passed a budget. This angered many Republican legislators who had put in a lot of work to write and pass those bills. Rep. Mark Finchem accused Ducey of acting like a petty dictator throwing a “manchild temper tantrum” in retaliation for the legislature refusing to pass “a budget that has so much pork in it, you’d think we were going to a barbecue.”
As a former Governor myself, let me assure you that I would never veto good bills as a way of blackmailing the legislature into passing something else first. That’s making the perfect the enemy of the good. These days, it’s rare enough to get a conservative bill passed at all. When you have one on your desk just awaiting your signature, you don’t kill it for no reason and assume it will pass again later. Let’s hope that Kari Lake or whoever the next Governor of Arizona is (hopefully, a Republican) understands that.
By Mike Huckabee
Anyone who argues that President Biden isn’t embarking on a more radical third term of Obama should take it up with someone who obviously believes that: Barack Obama.
Obama pointed out that Biden is appointing people from his Administration, reinstating his policies and essentially, “finishing the job.” Considering that Obama vowed to “fundamentally transform” America, and that many people were horrified at what he was transforming it into, the phrase "finishing the job" carries ominous echoes of "The Godfather." Anyone who bought the line that Biden was going to be a moderate centrist working across the aisle was conned worse than Bernie Madoff’s clients.
