12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12

BLM, Tucker And The American Flag

By Mike Huckabee

A small group of BLM protesters gathered outside Fox News headquarters in Manhattan to make one of their typically intelligent statements. Tucker Carlton had the perfect response to them burning his photo along with the American flag:

Congratulations to BLM for making Tucker Carlson synonymous with America and the flag. I’m sure that will really hurt him and help your cause, whatever it may be at this point.

The Biggest Mistake

By Mike Huckabee

I’ve been writing for years that the biggest mistake Republicans ever made was letting leftist educrats take over America’s public schools and turn them from places of learning into political indoctrination centers (and in some places, guaranteed lifetime jobs programs for incompetent union teachers who give good, dedicated teachers a bad name.) I don’t know if it’s the brazenness of Critical Race Theory radicals or the fact that at-home Internet learning allowed parents to hear what their kids are being taught, but parents are finally be waking up to the problem and demanding reform. Deanna Fisher at the Victory Girls blog has some interesting comments on that and why we have to fix public schools, not abandon them:

If you need a few examples of how bad our education system has become at all levels, yesterday’s news brought an array of them:

Shocking leaked documents showed that some students who could soon be graduating from Baltimore City Public Schools are performing at levels up to 10 years below their age. In one test of nine students for math and reading, only two scored on a high school level. One student could only do math on a first grade level. No wonder that last May, school officials announced that even if students were failing at least one class, they would be promoted anyway. That was blamed on the 2020 pandemic. The real problem is that Baltimore has been run by Democrats for six decades.

Oregon’s Gov. Kate Brown and the other Democrats that are ruining that beautiful state have given up entirely on even pretending that their schools are competent. Brown just signed a bill suspending for five years a state requirement that students demonstrate high school-level proficiency at reading, writing and math before receiving a high school diploma.

And the leftist murder of educational standards is, of course, also taking place at institutions of “higher learning.” Latest example: San Jose State University in California wants to create an (un)honors program for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People Of Color) students who couldn’t get into a merit-based honors program because of poor grades or low SAT scores. You see, merit is bad because it’s anti-“equity.” So this program would focus on “radical, new learning spaces responsive to and inspired by the complex and intersectional diversity of our local communities and our students.” Of course, the “diversity” would not include any white students

In short: go to college and be treated with the soft bigotry of low expectations. Learn a lot of leftist buzzwords like “equity” and “intersectional” and a lot of racist “anti-racism.” But on the plus side, at least you’ll be on a scholarship, so you won’t have to go deep in debt to get an utterly useless degree like a lot of other students have.

Or you could go for a medical or STEM degree, but even those may soon be as useless as voodoo doctor training thanks to medicine and science being rapidly destroyed by Critical Race Theory, radical transgender activism, assaults on merit and the scientific method, and other fact-denying movements.

And this is why we need major educational system reform NOW. Let’s hope it’s not too late to save the next generation from both socialism and idiocracy. As for the current youngest generation, let’s hope that when reality eventually knocks the force-fed socialist nonsense out of them, it won’t hurt too much.

Even Nancy Pelosi Sees It

By Mike Huckabee

Do not let this make you overconfident, but even Nancy Pelosi apparently sees the handwriting on the wall. Inside sources claim that she’s already planning to step down as House Speaker after the 2022 elections, and she might not even run for reelection again because she has no desire to be in the minority.

Well, it could be worse. At least she wouldn’t be in the minority under a partisan monster of a Speaker like Nancy Pelosi. As for her decision to step down as Speaker after the 2022 elections, let us all hope, pray and work like the dickens to make sure she doesn’t have to make that decision because the voters will make it for her.

The Blinders Are Off

By Mike Huckabee

I think it’s finally safe to say that the blinders are off concerning the self-serving, racist, Marxist Black Lives Matter movement. After a year of watching the group spread divisiveness and lawlessness while its leaders raked in millions and shared little of it with black communities destroyed by rioting and crime, their latest approval number in that same survey sits at…2%. That’s a 92% drop from their previous net high of 24%. That’s largely because their approval among Independents has plummeted from 25% last summer to -8%.

On the plus side, CNN finally has something that makes the trajectory of its TV ratings look good in comparison.

Oil Production

By Mike Huckabee

With the average price of a gallon of gas reaching a seven-year high of $3.18 ($1 more since this time last year), President Biden is pressing OPEC to increase oil production and support the recovery.

Or – and this may be crazy, but hear me out – instead of begging OPEC to produce more oil and save us from his own stupid policies, maybe Biden could stop waging war on America’s domestic oil and gas industries, and stop banning drilling, fracking and building pipelines, so that gas prices could be affordable and we could be a net exporter of oil. You know, like we were a year ago when Trump was in office.

Clean Up On Aisle Five

By Mike Huckabee

With the recall polls tightening and the walls closing in, California Gov. Gavin Newsom decided this would be the perfect moment to reenact the “Captain Queeg Loses His Mind” scene from “The Caine Mutiny.” His political consultants will need hazmat suits to clean this up.

Also worth noting for sheer craziness: California Rep. Norma Torres expressed fears the Republicans could win if Democrats don’t turn out, “if Democrats underestimate the power of fake news, you know the power of rumors.”

Sorry to break this to you, Norma, but “Gavin Newsom is a terrible Governor” is NOT fake news or a rumor. If you live in California, you don’t even need to watch the news to know that. Or maybe you’d like to explain to California voters how the high taxes, the endless arbitrary lockdowns and strict COVID rules that politicians don’t observe, the masses of illegal immigrants and homeless people, the wildfires and power outages, the skyrocketing cost of living, the surge in crime and the “poop maps” are all just figments of their imagination.

    When Trump was in the White house, The Democrats told us that if they were ever to regain power, they would NEVER let it go. They will pull out all the stops to keep Newsom in the governor's office and they will not let us vote for anyone again. That is what they said and that is what I believe they will do, regrettably!

    Greetings Gov. Mike Huckabee; August 13, 2021 1430 hours.

    I find myself in a tizzy. I need someone with knowledge of our government, to explain to me.
    1. Why no one is taking charge of what is going on at the border. Why isn't this invasion by the democrats being stopped?

    2. Why are novice politicians telling the seasoned politicians what to do?

    3. Why aren't Anti-American politicians removed from office.

    4. Why doesn't anyone over ride Biden's executive orders, because they are destroying our country? As well in my opinion--are TREASON!!!! Why are we allowing Biden & his minions destroy our Republic without a FIGHT?????

    5. We the people cannot wait till 2022----we need the republicans to take action now, to remove the Biden Adm. from office asap. We need the republicans to take a stand and abolish the Anti-American party.

    I became an Independent--because I was so disgusted on how the Republican Party treated President Trump.
    You & I both know that Trump won the 2020 election--now we must put him where he belongs.
    The White House''.. Trump might still be able to save our country.

    I did not know where to write-my husband and I are fans of your show, I believe you to be a good and honest man. I hope you can find in your heart to respond me.

    God Bless you & your family & staff.
    Stay Safe!

    1. Tucker knows, as we all do, that the flak is heaviest over the target.
    2. Eliminating merit-based awards only cheapens the awards. If I were a person of color, I would be insulted that they think I can't qualify for anything, because of my color. It's why thinking non-sheeple have no respect for the educations of Barry or Moochelle Obama.
    3. I hate to tell this to Norma Torres, but even if the democrats come out in droves, they'll be voting for anyone but Newsom.

    "The Biggest Mistake". I was at a local diner with my wife and she spotted a mother & daughter. My wife commented on the dress the daughter was wearing. I commented on the fact that the daughter appeared to be 9 years old and ordering off the menu! On the way out I could not help but ask the mom if her daughter was home schooled? The reply was yes. How did you know?!
    I work in a public high school, I would guess half the kids wouldn't be able to order off a menu. Most would not be able to read the whole book of Tom Sawyer or Huck Finn, much less the Autobiography of Frederick Douglas. Goal of socialism is for us to become Helots to the Aristocrats. Which will turn America into a 2nd rate country or worse

    Hi Mike,
    God Bless you in the Name of Jesus Christ.
    I appreciate your effort to help people in so many ways.

    I am a Christian with a degree in Church History. I have spent 40 years researching and teaching God's Word, in home fellowships around the country.
    I have just finished writing 2 digital ebooks (which I've worked on for about 10 years):
    1. Servant Leaders for Jesus Christ (Your Ministry in The Body of Christ)
    2. Faith Suffering and Evil (Why is there Suffering and Evil - Why Faith is Important)
    I would like to make these 2 Ebooks available to people. If you email me at [email protected] I can reply to your email and attach both digital ebooks. I have them in 3 file formats .odt .txt. .pdf - so they can be loaded and read on any tablet, cell phone, or pc. If you think they're Godly, feel free to give them to anyone you want.
    Keep up the Good work. 2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

    I think you are giving Nancy Pelosi too much credit for self-awareness and California too much credit in your prediction that she not represent them further. I am betting (or at least stating in a public forum) that this is the beginning of the “big transition” to save America. By the mid-term election, and more likely at the beginning of the year in preparation for the election spin, Biden will be carted off as incompetent so that Kamala can take over as the first everything President and will bring Nancy along with her as Vice President for the first everything ticket.

    Well we have finally succeeded in the "DUMBING OF AMERICA" . What is really criminal is the amount of money that is thrown at and wasted on education without seeming benefit. This is a major crisis for our country while promoting CRT just makes it worse.

    The situation in Afghanistan is not surprising. The pleading of Biden to please spare the embassy is an example of dealing from a position of weakness and a total disregard to the Afghanistan people. He was conned by the Taliban as evidenced by his promise that the current situation was "very unlikely" to happen. Any student of History (or anyone that has gone through a divorce, and this is a divorce of our relationship with the Afghanistans) knows that you cannot deal from a position of weakness. Biden is dealing in all matters from a kumbaya position of weakness. Trump would have dealt from a position of strength, as did Reagan.
