Would you believe it? Late night comedians are actually mocking the Democratic candidates.
It’s true. In fact, over the weekend (Saturday, June 15), I went on WATTERS’ WORLD, along with Charlie Kirk, to talk with Jesse Watters about that very thing. Leftist media personalities (but I repeat myself) are taking note of how old these candidates are...how boring they are (Jimmy Kimmel said the people in Iowa are saying, ‘We’ve never been this bored, and we live in Iowa”)...how too-too politically correct they are...how unfunny their jokes are...on and on.
When the late night comedians are attacking the DEMOCRATS, you know how bad those Democrats must be. After all, the standard for Democrats is really pretty low, and I’m not just talking ethics. But they’ve gone after Trump for so doggone long that there is nothing left at the bottom of that mine shaft and they have got to start spelunking someplace else. I’m actually agreeing with Jimmy Kimmel: these candidates are about as unexciting as it gets. And we’re barely into the campaign; imagine how boring they’re going to seem in just a few more months.
Charlie Kirk pointed out something that others have commented on, including me: audiences don’t actually LAUGH at all those anti-Trump jokes any more because they’re always on the same themes and aren’t even funny. What proud “progressives” prefer to do is applaud at the “punchlines” (predictable applause lines) to virtue-signal that they agree. The more they applaud, the more it just means they hate Trump. And with leftists, it’s a contest to see who hates Trump more.
Narrative-Shattering Story of the Day
By Mike Huckabee
I thought Republicans were all in the pocket of Big Pharma and wanted to keep drug prices as high as possible because…well…they’re so mean, they want seniors to go without medicine! Yeah, that’s the ticket!
So why is the pharmaceutical industry taking a page from the Democrats and suing the Trump Administration to try to block a proposed new rule requiring the list price of a drug to be included in ads for it?
The drug companies claim this would violate their free speech and might scare people into thinking they can’t afford a drug when their insurance might prevent them from having to pay list price. But a spokeswoman for Health and Human Services fired back, “If the drug companies are embarrassed by their prices or afraid that the prices will scare patients away, they should lower them.”

Joe Biden is on the horns of a conundrum
By Mike Huckabee
Joe Biden is on the horns of a conundrum: he’s running for President on a promise to “make America America again,” but that implies he wants to bring something back from the past. But what? The “progressives” who are driving the Democratic primaries think everything about America’s past is evil. He can’t run on bringing back Obama’s economic record, unless he thinks enough voters want to go back onto food stamps to put him over the top. And while he’s considered the “safe, electable” candidate because of his history of more moderate positions, his Party has moved so far left that policies that were until recently considered common sense and moderate are now branded as racist, alt-right fascism. The media have played a part in this by attacking everything Trump does as radical and unprecedented, even when he’s doing exactly what Obama did or enforcing laws Biden voted for.
And here’s another way in which Biden’s past may pose an insurmountable obstacle: the media have painted Trump as a loose cannon who makes outrageous statements that reveal his racism. Biden himself has even suggested that Trump is an unstable racist and he would be he cure for that.
So Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips took his camera to Marymount University in Virginia and interviewed students who said they preferred Biden to Trump. He read them three outrageously racist quotes and asked them to guess whether Biden or Trump said them. They guessed Trump said all three. Check out their reactions when they learn that Biden said all three.
It’s heartening to hear these students say that they would now do more research and reconsider who to vote for. But I suspect that just means they’re less likely to vote for Biden and more likely to vote for some other Democrat who’s done a better job of covering up his or her past ridiculous statements and positions.

The Electoral College protects all Americans
By Mike Huckabee
There is one college in America that only graduates one person at a time and only every 4 years. It’s the Electoral College, and some people want to close it down. In fact, all 480 Democrats running for President say they want to get rid of it, but there are some Republicans who support that as well. And you may think that it’s an archaic and outdated process that needs to be retired along with 8 track tapes and AM transistor radios. But like a lot of things in our Constitution created by the Founding Fathers, there is a reason they created a representative republic and not a pure democracy. So before you say, let’s “kill the college,” let’s understand why we have one.

I hope all you dads had a great Fathers’ Day yesterday (in fact, I wish you could all have one as great as mine.) Since the media have decided that fathers are one of the last groups that it’s okay to ridicule and malign as dumb and lazy, you might enjoy seeing this article:
A study of data from the American Time Use Survey found that when you add up time spent working both at home and away from home, among married couples with kids, fathers actually put in slightly more work hours per week than mothers (by 59 to 55 hours per week.) That holds true across every configuration except one: marriages where the wife works outside the house while the man stays home. On average, those men not only don’t work outside the home, they also spend “substantially less time on childcare and household chores” than stay-at-home moms.
So if you fall for the feminist argument that the best type of man to marry is one who is fine with his wife working while he stays home to play the nontraditional caregiver role, note that he might not be “woke” or a “male feminist” so much as just lazy.
Some good news to start off your week: yesterday, priests held a mass for about 20 people at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, the first service since the fire that nearly destroyed it on April 15. For safety, the priests and worshipers had to wear hardhats.
Here’s a report on it, with a couple of photos:
And here are even more photos (click-through the slideshow to see them all.)
Another example of viewpoint censorship: we all howled with laughter when Hillary Clinton was signed as a speaker at a cybersecurity conference. But this is not ironically hilarious, just infuriating:
Texas Republican Rep. Will Hurd is a former CIA officer and a longtime expert and advocate for cybersecurity. So he seemed to be the perfect choice as keynote speaker of an upcoming conference on that subject in Las Vegas. But the organizers caved in and canceled his speech due to leftist pressure after an editor for Tech Crunch tweeted that Hurd has “a terrible voting record on women’s rights.”
For the uninitiated, that means he’s pro-life and doesn’t support the “right” to slaughter children in the womb. Which, of course, makes him unsuitable to talk about cybersecurity. Unlike Hillary Clinton, who is the world’s worst example of cybersecurity, but is radically pro-abortion.
It sounds as if anyone who really wants to learn anything about cybersecurity could safely abort these politicized conferences from their schedule.
No one should run for an office he/she wants withoout resigning from one he/she has. Disgusts me (GOP and Dems) when people get paid by taxpayers for a job they don't show up for and spend time & our money to try to get a different one. If you're mayor, governor, senator, Congressman and want to be President, finish your term or resign and then run. It's stealing from taxpayers to keep getting paid and not doing what you're paid to do. If you fear you won't win, then don't run. Show some guts and integrity!
