Terrifying Poll Numbers For Democrats
By Mike Huckabee
Vice President Kamala Harris denied that pressure from Republicans or former President Trump’s visit to the border were the reasons why she finally went to El Paso after 90 long days. So maybe this is the reason why Democrats are finally trying to look as if they’re interested in doing something about the crisis created by Biden’s reversal of Trump’s border security policies. It’s the only thing that motivates some politicians: terrifying poll numbers.
A new Harvard/Harris poll (note: hardly a rightwing polling outfit) found that a staggering 80% of registered voters believe that illegal immigration is a serious issue that needs more attention than Biden and Harris are giving it. Further, 68% said the Biden White House is putting out signals encouraging more illegal immigration, and 55% believe that Trump’s border policies should have been left in place.
It’s no wonder they’re concerned: the latest disaster news is that so far this fiscal year, Border Patrol agents have arrested 353 illegal aliens with sex-related criminal convictions, many involving children. That’s an increase of 542% from fiscal 2019. And authorities have detected more than 250,000 illegal aliens who have evaded capture.
Incidentally, the poll also found that other issues are boiling up as concerns to voters, and those issues – inflation, taxes and teaching Critical Race Theory in schools – are all straight off the Democratic Party’s rancid buffet table.
It’s encouraging news for those who want to wrest power away from the Democrats who are abusing it in Congress in 2022, but remember what I always tell you: ignore polls, especially polls this far out. Don’t let them make you complacent. We need every Republican voter turning out in 2022. Remember that if Republicans in Georgia had shown up for the Senate runoff in the same numbers they did in the general election, Republicans would still be in charge of the Senate. So pray for the best, but work like dogs to help get out the vote and make it happen.
Well, Knock Me Over With A Feather!
By Mike Huckabee
A new study finds that unemployment rates are dropping faster in states that cut off enhanced unemployment benefits that were paying people more to stay home than they would make if they took a job. Who could have predicted that?
Seriously, I was assured by “top people” all the way up to the President that paying people not to work had no effect on the unemployment rate. What a head-scratcher!
Dealing With Biden
By Mike Huckabee
Last week, I told you that a group of Senate Republicans had agreed with President Biden on a compromise infrastructure bill. It cut the $2.3 trillion that Biden wanted to spend down to a bare-bones $1.2 trillion. Well, I barely had time to send that story before Biden undid it all by announcing that he wouldn’t sign the bill unless it was part of a “reconciliation” package that included all the government-bloating, big spending schemes that he’d just agreed to cut to get the Republicans to sign on.
With the Republicans screaming that they’d been duped, Biden (or more likely, his panicked staffers) issued a statement on Saturday walking back Biden’s most recent statement. It said that in no way did his statement that if the other spending didn’t come along with the compromise bill, “I’m not signing. Real simple,” mean that he wouldn’t sign it. The statement read, “My comments also created the impression that I was issuing a veto threat on the very plan I had just agreed to, which was certainly not my intent.”
It’s not known whether that reassurance will be enough to lure Republicans back into the trap a second time. Will Biden’s current assurance that he’ll abide by the deal last longer than the 2-3 hours that his previous assurance lasted? According to my source, which is more reliable than the White House’s word, “Reply hazy, ask again later.”
CRT: A Marxist Pile Of Horse-Droppings
By Mike Huckabee
If you have kids in school, you might want to bookmark this:
Schools pushing racist Critical Race Theory on students often rely on a book called “Stamped: Racism, Anti-racism and You, a Remix” by Jason Reynolds and Ibram Kendi, which is a simplified version of Kendi’s book, “Stamped from the Beginning.” Those who criticize it are accused of being ignorant and simply not understanding what CRT really is.
Well, if you think it’s a Marxist-derived school of dividing the races and pitting them against each other by teaching kids that they are either victims or oppressors based on their skin color, then you know what CRT is. But if school administrators start pulling out their academic credentials to claim that they know what’s true better than a bunch of ignorant parents, you can pull this article out and pelt them with quotes from it.
Prof. David Bernstein of George Mason University lists what I’m sure are just a small sample of the blatant historical errors and distortions that the book makes in attempting to convince us that America is and always has been irredeemably racist. They range from assertions unsupported by facts (a black women’s group was “racist” for opposing misogynistic gangsta rap lyrics) to easily-refuted factual errors (too many to list, but for instance, unemployment didn’t “skyrocket” during the Reagan years; Clarence Thomas didn’t get into fancy schools because he was a conservative activist; Mumia Abu Jamal was not a “political prisoner” but a convicted cop killer; and Charles Krauthammer did not coin the term “crack baby.”)
It’s one thing to claim your critics are just too dumb to comprehend your brilliant theory, but when that theory is based on a lot of easily-refuted historical falsehoods, then it has no business being taught in schools, even if it weren’t a toxic, divisive, racist, Marxist pile of horse droppings.
Turning Her Back On America
By Mike Huckabee
Olympic hammer-thrower Gwen Berry is taking flak for once again showing her disdain and disrespect for the National Anthem during the US Olympic trials in Eugene, Oregon, by turning her back and putting a T-shirt over her head.
She’s attempting to deflect criticism by claiming she was “set up,” but in order to swallow that, you’d have to believe, as she apparently does, that the entire Olympic system revolves around her and her angry feelings toward her own nation that she believes is systemically racist, despite it giving her the opportunity to be an Olympian.
For instance, she claimed she was angry because they played the Anthem during the medal awards (she won bronze.) She said, “I feel like they did that on purpose,” and “The anthem don’t speak for me. It never has.” A spokesperson for the trials said the Anthem was scheduled to play at 5:20 p.m. and (gasp!) it had nothing to do with where Gwen Berry happened to be standing at the time.
Berry is also wrankled by the Tokyo Olympics’ ban on political demonstrations during medal ceremonies. She said, “It’s our sacrifice. It’s our podium. It’s our moment. So we should be able to protest whatever we want. It’s not for them to decide.”
Wow, that sure is a lot of me’s, we’s and our’s. Actually, it is their podium. She chose to participate in an organization that she doesn’t run. And she’s not just representing herself; like it or not, she’s representing the United States of America. If she finds that idea so repulsive that she’s incapable of behaving like an adult and following the rules, then nobody’s forcing her to compete for the privilege.
And by the way: it is a privilege. It’s not a right. Luckily for her, America provides her with an awful lot of rights she doesn’t seem to appreciate, but being able to go to Tokyo and compete in the Olympics while ignoring the rules is not one of them.

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock kicked over a beehive by renaming an endowed professorship known as the Distinguished Professor of Law and Public Policy to the “William J. Clinton Professor of Constitutional Law and Public Service.” The change was made without consulting faculty members, some of whom are not happy at the idea of the school honoring a lawyer who was disbarred over giving false testimony.
Those seeking to defend him are arguing that he wasn’t disbarred, he was only suspended. Well, that certainly should quell any questions about honoring him! To respond to that, here’s a source that liberals always claim is reputable. Even Snopes.com says the claims of Clinton being disbarred and fined are “mostly true.”
