Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Psalms 16:11

Europe wising up

By Mike Huckabee

Leftists: "We want to transform America into Sweden!"

Sweden: "A leading Swedish hospital is banning giving dangerous, unpredictable hormones to minors with gender dysphoria. They're too young to make such a life-altering and risky decision. It's child abuse."

Leftists: "The Swedes are transphobes. Let's give dangerous, unpredictable hormones to minors with gender dysphoria."

"Say, the U.K. has been acting insanely 'woke' lately! Maybe we should transform America into Britain."

Britain: "To combat accusations of widespread fraud in the last election, the Queen will announce a package of new election integrity measures, including voter ID."

Leftists: "Rats!!...Okay, let's just admit we want to turn America into Venezuela."

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki claimed that most economists in the White House agree that paying people an extra $300 a week in unemployment through September, even though the pandemic is obviously already winding down, is keeping them from taking jobs. As it stands now, many employers can’t find enough workers because if you earn less than $32,000 a year, you’ll make more sitting on the couch. I think this tells us more about the economists the White House listens to than it does about the economy.

But President Biden reminded Americans that if you’re on Unemployment, you’re expected to take any suitable job offer. And of course, nobody ever figured out a way to get around that. The fact that he felt the need to say that at all seems to imply that they do know that’s happening.

But my favorite Democrat attempt to do an end-run around reality came from socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, who blamed the complaints about incentivizing unemployment on “greed.” He tweeted that there’s a “simple solution” if businesses can’t find workers: simply raise wages and give more benefits.

That’s precisely the kind of authoritative wisdom about business that I’d expect from someone who failed at every endeavor he tried in life until he entered “public service,” and then somehow became a millionaire who owns three houses. As the owner of a number of business endeavors, I hate to break it to the Senator, but do you know what happens when you pay people far more money than you actually have and provide far more benefits than you can afford? You end up very deep in debt and in danger of going bankrupt.

Even with zero business experience, Bernie should know that, since it’s precisely what he and his “progressive” pals in Congress have done to America.

Two Americas

By Mike Huckabee

Oklahoma's Governor signs a bill banning Critical Race Theory from public schools...

Washington's Governor signs a bill requiring Critical Race Training for all public school teachers...

I hope all those Washington parents don't miss the ocean too much when they move to Oklahoma.

Portland thugs

By Mike Huckabee

Joe Hall is a disabled former Marine and handyman from Portland, Oregon. He mistakenly drove his truck (which had Marine and Trump stickers on it) too close to an Antifa march. He was surrounded by armed Antifa thugs carrying AR-15 and AK-style rifles. They began banging on his truck, calling him a racist and fascist, and pointing guns at him. Scared for his life, he showed his pistol to try to warn them away, but he was jumped and brutally beaten. He’s still in the hospital with serious injuries, but when he finally recovers, he says he’s leaving Portland for good.

When pressed on why militant thugs openly carrying guns are allowed to run the streets of Portland, assaulting citizens at will, Mayor Ted Wheeler evaded the question, saying he didn’t know if they had a parade permit, as if that’s the major concern here. His police department was equally evasive.

That’s actually weaker than a few weeks ago, when Wheeler “got tough” with Antifa by saying this:

“They want to burn. They want to bash, like they did to the nonprofit Boys and Girls Club in Northeast. Really, they want to intimidate. They want to assault…If BLM leaders can show the courage to stand up to this mob, then we all should … Make a stand and take our city back.”

Memo to Ted Wheeler: It’s not the job of the citizens to stand up to armed, violent thugs and take the city back. You’re the Mayor. That’s a job for you and your police department. In fact, it was your job to keep them from taking over the city in the first place. Did you seriously not know this when you ran for the office?

Cat out of the bag

By Mike Huckabee

An unnamed White House staffer told New York Magazine exactly how they’re bamboozling voters with the help of a compliant media:

“[A]t his hundred-day mark, Biden is the most liberal president we’ve had — and the public thinks he’s a moderate. That’s a winning strategy to me. They’re willing to accept that you’re gonna write this piece as long as they know that swing voters in Colorado aren’t gonna read it.”

In short, they’re counting on a biased media misinforming Americans that Biden is a moderate instead of the most far-left radical we’ve ever had in the White House, but they’ll only admit it to a liberal New York magazine because they assume you’re never going to see that. Apparently, they never counted on folks like us, who read the news so you don’t have to and pass along all the ugly truths that they really don’t want you to know.

Talking point gets nuked

By Mike Huckabee

Say, you know how we’re all going to DIE from the virus of unknown origin because those dumb, science-denying, knuckle-dragging MAGA Republicans refuse to get vaccinated? That’s what the media keep telling us. Problem is, like much of what they tell us, it ain’t necessarily so.
