Tropical Storm Ida grew into a hurricane Friday, and it’s predicted to be a category 4 before making landfall on Sunday. Parts of New Orleans and some other Gulf Coast areas are under evacuation orders. Meanwhile, parts of Mexico and California are bracing for the arrival of Hurricane Nora from the Pacific.

If you are in the paths of any dangerous storms, please watch the weather news closely and don’t take chances. Be ready to evacuate if needed or take any necessary precautions and preparations. And don’t forget to take care of your animals, too.

Credit Where It’s Due

By Mike Huckabee

The Biden Administration finally did something right in Afghanistan, ordering a drone strike that killed one man believed to be a member of the ISIS-K splinter group who was allegedly involved in planning the suicide bomb attack on Kabul Airport.

It was as if Biden finally woke up and realized that the United States military actually has some options and doesn’t have to just stand around like a punching bag and take orders from the Taliban. Let’s hope this reminder puts a little starch in his spine in other areas.


By Mike Huckabee

Unfortunately, that drone strike wasn’t the only retaliation that the Administration launched. Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller knew he was risking his career by speaking out against the military leadership's disastrous bungling of the Afghanistan pullout. But as a 17-year career infantryman who knew one of the Marines killed in Kabul, he felt he had no choice. What was the unconscionable thing he said? The Democrats’ Kryptonite: he demanded accountability. He asked why none of Biden’s top military advisers told him not to go through with this obviously flawed plan. And for that, he’s now been relieved of his post as company commander for Advanced Infantry Training Battalion at Camp Lejune.

Let me repeat that, to make it clear: None of the incompetent, PC-obsessed top military leaders with their chests full of meaningless Gilbert & Sullivan decorations who stood by and did nothing as Biden instituted a clearly disastrous pullout plan have been fired, nor did they do the honorable thing and resign. But a Lt. Colonel who earned his rank has been fired for daring to ask for accountability.

To his credit, Scheller didn’t complain. He knew the risks and said his chain of command did what he would have done.

I understand the idea of military discipline and not questioning orders, but in a case like this, where the top decision makers so thoroughly blew it that they made General Custer look like a tactical genius, retaliating against people who dare to voice legitimate criticism just looks like the actions of tinpot dictators who try to cover their failures by silencing their critics. If it's your duty to speak up, then how can you defend silence? And while mutiny may be a court martial offense, what choice do you have when you’ve got Captain Queeg at the wheel?

But it’s not just Lt. Col. Scheller. The Office of Naval Intelligence sent out a warning to active duty and even retired service members that they are not allowed to express “disrespect” for senior government leadership, including the President, Vice President, Secretary of Defense, Congress and more.

Thankfully, I’m not an ONI veteran, so I can tell you precisely what I think of the lot of them. Except I don’t have to because Kurt Schichter already did it for me in his latest column, simply entitled, “RESIGN”:

I will add that I find it particularly galling that some of the same generals who helped Biden create this disaster had no problem with “disrespecting” a President when they were actively working to undermine President Trump.

The State Department denied President Biden’s claim that the US might have given the Taliban a list of Americans and Afghan allies so they could “help usher” them to the Kabul airport. Some were calling that a “kill list.” But a State Department spokesman said, "The idea that we are providing names or personally identifiable information to the Taliban in a way that exposes anyone to additional risk, that is simply wrong, simply wrong,"

I agree it would be wrong, but that doesn’t reassure me that this Administration didn’t do it.

Must-read story

By Mike Huckabee

This could make a heck of a movie someday, if Hollywood ever gets over hating America. You have to read the incredible story of “Task Force Pineapple,” the heroic group of all-volunteer Special Forces Afghan War veterans who took it upon themselves to do what President Biden wouldn’t and launched a daring rescue mission to bring 630 of our Afghan allies and their families to the Kabul Airport.
