Our Daily Verse...
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 And you may think that it’s an archaic and outdated process that needs to be retired along with 8 track tapes and AM transistor radios.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.
The founders feared a tyranny of the majority-a nation in which some voices were drowned out and drummed out of the process. It was the rationale of having 3 separate, but equal branches of government, the legislative, executive, and judicial along with a complicated but brilliant set of checks and balances. And instead of having a President elected strictly by a popular vote, they intentionally created the Electoral College by which the President is actually elected by electors in each of the states, based on the votes of the people in that state which have specific electoral votes based on the size of their population and Congressional representation.

Perdue makes a big change for the better
By Mike Huckabee
Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue announced this week that two agencies of the USDA would be moved to Kansas from Washington, DC. If you guessed that went over like a kale salad at my house, you’re right. Agency employees turned their backs on Perdue in silent protest. They’re claiming nefarious motives, such as that the move is to impair climate research and that it’s “cold-hearted” to make those poor bureaucrats move out of their natural habitat.
As always, Democrats in Congress are threatening to scamper to a federal judge to have the move declared illegal. It’s amazing how powerless the President became the moment Trump won. Before that, Obama could make laws and treaties all by himself via executive order, when he wasn't lowering the tides by waving his hands. Now, Trump allegedly doesn't even have the power to undo an Obama order or, apparently, to relocate an office.
Perdue said the decision wasn’t made lightly and that it will save taxpayers $300 million over 15 years in leases and other costs. But that didn’t mollify the furious federal employees who can’t believe anyone could be so cruel as to make USDA bureaucrats live way out where a bunch of farmers are.
Personally, I like this idea. I say we move all the vital functions of government out of Washington and closer to the people they’re supposed to be serving. It would save money, and make government more responsive and efficient. Plus, once DC was emptied of everything but politicians and bureaucrats, we could finally save America by building a big, beautiful wall…around Washington.

Fighting for Life in Massachusetts
By Mike Huckabee
Monday at 1 p.m., Massachusetts lawmakers will hold a public hearing on a bill for the state to join New York and Vermont in allowing abortions of viable babies right up until the moment of birth for any reason. Pro-life activists are urging those who oppose this radical bill to show up for their one chance to make their voices heard before it comes up for a vote. As Bernadette Lyons, wife of state Rep. Jim Lyons said, “We are not going to let this proud cradle of liberty become the shameful cradle of death.”

This week’s escalating assaults on conservatives and pro-life groups by big tech have escalated into all-out war on free speech on the Internet. Read this, then remember to sign up for the pro-free speech Twitter alternative Parler.com, where you will now find me at @MikeHuckabee.
I said I had planned to wait to report on the libel lawsuit against Oberlin College by a bakery that was smeared as racist by radical leftist students with the alleged complicity of the school’s administration. I was waiting until the “other shoe dropped,” i.e., to see if the jury added punitive damages to the $11.2 million in compensatory damages they ordered Oberlin to pay. Well, it dropped, and it wasn’t a shoe, it was a combat boot. The jury awarded the maximum $33 million in punitive damages for a total of over $44 million.
Maybe this will finally send shock waves to liberal universities to stop coddling and enabling violent and anti-social behavior by students who are supposed to be in college to learn how to be civilized, educated adults, not to throw emotional tantrums at the expense of everyone else’s rights. And you might be surprised to learn who celebrated this long-overdue blowback against schools that indulge these “social justice warrior” tactics.
Sorry to see that the “ladies and gentlemen” of the press (that might require more than one set of quotation marks) are being just as partisan, petty and hateful toward my daughter Sarah when she’s leaving the White House as they were when she had to deal with their unprofessionalism and partisanship daily. This story recounts some of their impotent raging, which I predict won't prove any more of an obstacle to her future than a pebble would to a Cadillac. But it also includes something you might want to bookmark to rewatch on nights when you want to go to bed with a warm feeling: her five greatest smackdowns of arrogant, hostile reporters (i.e., Democratic PR agents with press passes.)
Least Surprising News Ever: In the first four months of 2019, while the Republicans have been stockpiling cash for the 2020 elections, the Democratic National Committee spent more money than it took in and added $3 million to its debt. This is about as shocking as the news that “Water is wet.” In fact, you could replace both parties' platforms with this news nugget, and you'd get a pretty good idea of what to expect when you voted.
