BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY
NCAA SIDES WITH TRANS RIGHTS OVER WOMEN'S RIGHTS
By Mike Huckabee
The NCAA just took the side of trans rights over women’s rights, announcing that they “unequivocally” support transgender athletes, meaning letting biological males who “identify” as females compete in women’s sports. The NCAA went on to brand states that ban this as practicing “discrimination” and said they will take that into account when determining where NCAA championships are held.
So now, the NCAA has joined Major League Baseball in declaring that it has the power to determine what laws a state is allowed to pass or it will take its ball and go elsewhere. Since the NCAA has just publicly declared itself to be a leftwing political activist group rather than an neutral organization overseeing fair collegiate athletic competitions, then it’s time to treat them accordingly under the laws and form a new organization to take their place.
By the way, if you want to see how ludicrous their claim to be following “evolving science on this issue” is, click to that story and take a look at the photos of some of the “trans” athletes next to the girls half their size who are now expected to compete against them.

I’ve written many times over the years about how leftists can’t win any argument based on logic, facts, history or evidence, so they keep redefining words. Here’s the latest example: look at how President Biden and his underlings and house pets in the media are trying to redefine the word “bipartisan” so that it can apply to far-left bills jammed through Congress without a single Republican vote.
If they worked as hard at coming up with good legislation as they do coming up with ways to deny what they’re obviously doing, they might actually write a bill a few Republicans could vote for, but that’s not going to happen. Far easier just to keep channeling Lewis Carroll’s Humpty Dumpty, who said, “When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less.” And we all know what happened to Humpty Dumpty.
New Podcast Episode
By Mike Huckabee
On today's TPP, Governor Huckabee talks with fellow former Governor Bobby Jindal about leadership, and why he believes the coronavirus pandemic could be a golden opportunity to transform education in America. But first, he shares a few public speaking tips for the White House Press Secretary.
What if no one showed up for a White Lives Matter rally?
By Mike Huckabee
To listen to Democrats these days, the biggest problem facing America is the massive rise of “white supremacists.” But what if they held a white supremacist rally and nobody came?
Well, that already sort of happened in Washington, where we were assured that rightwing extremists were planning a massive rally to overthrow the government, which is why we needed razor wire fencing around the Capitol and thousands of National Guard troops sleeping in a parking garage and eating inedible garbage. But as I predicted, the day came and went, nobody showed up and nothing happened.
Well, last Sunday, we were told that there were going to be white supremacist and neo-Nazi rallies around America, allegedly predicted from “semi-private, encrypted chats” online. Again…nothing. Oh, there were violent rallies, but not by rightwing extremists.
As the story at that link points out, NBC News “disinformation” beat reporter Brandy Zadrozny crowed that “hardly anyone showed up,” but that begs the question: Why? If the biggest threat to America are tens of millions of white supremacists, where are they? Some analysts suggested that there never were any such plans; that the alleged “encrypted chats” were just hoaxes either by pranksters or by leftists trying to whip up paranoia and scare us into giving them more power. If so, then NBC’s “disinformation” reporter was duped by disinformation.
Blogger Ann Althouse looked more closely at the “evidence” for the rally planning and found very little “there” there.
She notes that, just as in DC, when nobody showed up, it was taken as evidence that the white supremacist movement has gone underground so we need to crack down even harder. It’s convenient that it makes no difference whether the boogeymen show up by the millions or don’t appear at all, the conclusion is always the same: the left needs to be given more power to protect us from them.
Democrats have gone full-on dictator mode
By Mike Huckabee
I’m sure that when I predicted during the election that if Democrats took full power by even one vote, they’d soon be trying to force through bills to completely remake America and cement their power forever, some people thought I was being paranoid or overstating the case to fire up the GOP voting base. No, I just know these people.
And so, some Congressional Democrats have gone full-on dictator mode and today will introduce a bill to expand the Supreme Court to 13 Justices. This scheme known as “court-packing” (as usual, they’re trying to redefine the term, but we use words appropriately around here) would let them appoint four more liberal activists to the SCOTUS to outvote the current (occasionally) conservative majority.
This is such a transparent attempt at a power grab and a massive politicization of the SCOTUS that would destroy the public’s faith in its integrity that it was opposed even by fellow Democrats when FDR floated it in the 1930s. Liberal heroine Ruth Bader Ginsberg opposed it, and liberal Justice Stephen Breyer recently spoke out against it. In 1983, then-Senator Joe Biden called it “a boneheaded idea.” That's back when he could recognize those.
The bill’s sponsors, Sen. Ed Markey (Mass.), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (NY), Rep. Hank Johnson (GA) and Rep. Mondaire Jones (NY) aren’t even trying to hide behind the fig leaf of claiming the SCOTUS is overburdened and needs more Justices. They’re quite open about their nakedly political intent being to stack the Court with liberals to change its rulings.
It should be noted that when Trump was appointing Justices such as Amy Coney Barrett, he never said he was looking for conservative activists. He chose judges who respected the Constitution and the original intent of its writers, not those who advocated for their version of what it should say. That’s the opposite of what Nadler and company are seeking. They clearly want to turn the SCOTUS into an unelected super-legislature dominated by leftwing political activists.
In response, six House Republicans introduced a Constitutional Amendment reading, “The Supreme Court shall be composed of not more than nine Justices.” That's not currently in the Constitution, but it's been the number for 150 years. They say this would bring stability to the Court and take attempts to expand and pack it for political reasons off the table.
Most Constitutional Amendments are passed by starting with a two-thirds vote of both Houses of Congress, and I have no confidence that you could find that many of our current Congress members who would oppose such a terrible and tyrannical idea. There’s also the much rarer route of getting two-thirds of state legislatures to vote to ask Congress to call a national convention, but again, the ball is back in Congress’ court.
Bottom line: the best way to prevent Congress from attempting to do an end run around the Constitution with abominable ideas like Court-packing is to be a lot more careful about who we elect to Congress.
Fortunately, this bill is so over-the-top that it’s given little chance of passing. Even if it got all 50 Democrat votes in the Senate, moderate Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin has already stated that under no circumstances will he vote to end the filibuster, and there’s no way it would get 60 votes.
But it should send a chill up all Americans’ spines to think that we have elevated to power so many people who put their politics and lust for power above their sworn duty to preserve and protect the Constitution that we have ended up dependent on one Senator having the guts to prevent such a shocking assault on the rule of law.
America is still a great and exceptional nation, and one reason is because we are a nation of laws rather than a nation of power-mad men. We need to start appreciating and defending that tradition before we lose it.
Coca-cola is having second thoughts
By Mike Huckabee
For all of you who are so disheartened and think nobody cares what you think, check this out: it appears that Coca-Cola is already having second thoughts about driving away 74 million customers by putting leftist political virtue signaling over selling soda.
Keep voting with your dollars. It works!
ICYMI: MUST-READ: How we'll expose and defeat the LYING LEFT
By Mike Huckabee
In yesterday’s newsletter, we featured a letter that reflects the way many of us who favor the rule of law, conservative values and the Constitution are feeling right now. Here it is…
I agree that voters would be outraged about what the Left is doing but only if they KNOW what the Left is doing. The reason why Trump lost the last election is because so many people simply absorbed the curated media/celebrity propaganda. I currently see no reason why that would change in 2022. Most people, especially young people, just aren't paying enough attention. Your newsletter is great for those who bother to read it, but can't break through the information curtain of Big Tech and MSM.
With the bad news as relentless as it has been in recent days, many of us are naturally disheartened and have lost hope for a turnaround. Yes, it’s true that the preponderance of false media images cause poorly informed people to identify as “woke,” and that was a factor in Trump’s 2020 loss. But since then, the left have taken their effort so far, so dishonestly, and there’s been so much violence and racial unrest (urged on by white leftists), that more people than you might think are wising up.
The backlash is coming. Look for it.
A Reader Writes Back...
I really like your writing. It's refreshing to be able to read about what's going on in the world without having to dig for the truth in every sentence of every post and news article. I still can't get over how big the blinders are on so many people. May God have mercy on us.
Thanks for keeping us enlightened.
