Truly whipped

New Yorkers are being hit with yet another nanny state law, this time banning the sale of canned whipped cream to anyone under 21 because some young people might try to get high by huffing the nitrous oxide used to make it come out of the can

So if you’re keeping track, in New York, a teenager can rob, loot, shoplift, assault people and maybe even kill somebody and be released right back into the streets. But if he tries to buy a can of Reddi-Whip, then he’s in real trouble. Somehow, I can’t help wondering what New York lawmakers are huffing.

Confidential docs leaked

Remember, if you don’t cheat on your taxes, you have no reason to fear a massively-expanded IRS, according to the Democrats. But then, somehow, Democrat political organizations never seem to have their lists of donors that tax authorities are required to keep confidential get illegally leaked to liberal media outlets, such as just happened to Nikki Haley.

A great DeSantis response

The Dems (who love to use the strong arm of government to order people around and punish them for holding different political opinions) just love to call Republicans (who champion smaller government, personal freedom, free speech and the rights of the individual) “fascists” and “dictators.” Or accuse us of threatening violence against our political opponents (ahem – Rep. Steve Scalise, Sen. Rand Paul, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, etc. etc. etc.)  Or as President Biden once did, accuse us of wanting to put black people back in chains, when the Republican Party was founded on ending slavery and achieved it, despite Southern Democrats fighting a Civil War to keep their slaves. 

Either they don’t know what those words mean or else they can’t quite get the knack of pointing their fingers in the right direction.

Fortunately, they’ve pulled this slander so many times that voters are finally wising up to it and Republicans are learning how to respond to it. Like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who offered up this great response when his hapless opponent called him a “dictator” for NOT shutting down the state’s schools and businesses and NOT forcing everyone to take shots and wear masks even on the beach.

Redacted affidavit: one more thing that is unacceptable

All right. It’s time for those of us concerned about what the left is doing to stand up and say, “THAT’S IT. WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH.”

I speak of the Democrats’ new strategy, leading into the 2022 election and setting up for 2024, of tarring conservatives with being extreme “MAGA Republicans” and, as President Biden actually said, “semi-fascists.”

Who’s engaging in actual fascist behavior these days? Who conducted a shocking jackbooted “land, sea and air” invasion of a former President’s home, including his living quarters, sweeping away every document relating to his presidency and, in doing so, violating the 4th Amendment under the “authority” of a ridiculously overbroad warrant applied for by an appointee of the current President against his future political opponent and supposedly backed by an affidavit that is still being kept essentially secret? Who criminally investigates a former President over shaky allegations of mishandling documents? Who makes up ridiculous stories about a former President selling nuclear secrets to our enemies and disseminates them to co-conspirators in the media?

Who seeks to silence and cancel opposing voices before an election by coordinating with social media corporations? Who suppresses actual evidence of wrongdoing before an election by misrepresenting it as “Russian disinformation”? Who condemns and even criminalizes any effort to make elections more transparent and verifiable? Who reflexively lies about their political enemies with false and grotesque accusations of racism, white supremacy and even domestic terrorism?

This is the kind of behavior fascists engage in. This is what they do in banana republics. This is what poses the real “threat to democracy.” All of it is downright offensive. And it’s time to say this is UNACCEPTABLE.

It wouldn’t be acceptable to anyone, in our wildest imaginations, if President Trump had treated President Obama like a criminal and raided his home, even though Obama has millions of pages of presidential documents that still haven’t been given to the Archives. Certainly, the “d-word” (dictator) would have rightly been used if Trump had done that. Notice, however, that Trump didn’t. It’s Biden who did. So, who more closely resembles a dictator, the former President or the current one? I think we all know, yet the current one has the nerve to throw around terms like “neo-fascist” to describe Trump and his supporters. It has to end.

Just as we’d anticipated, the ‘Justice’ Department redacted most of the affidavit they’d submitted to U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart to get the search warrant on Mar-A-Lago. It even redacted the reasons for the redactions, leaving only one for us to see: the "safety of agents."  It revealed very little that we didn’t already know. (By the way, one thing we still don’t know: Did Judge Reinhart, when he approved the search, know they weren’t just planning to knock on Trump’s door? Was the massive armed raid of a former President’s home as much a surprise to him as it was to the rest of America? Has anyone asked him?)

Here are some priceless reactions from conservative commentators about the ludicrous degree of redaction employed by the DOJ.

As for Trump, he responded with characteristic pointed humor…

Speaking of redactions, we glanced at a few reports from leftist publications such as SLATE and ROLLING STONE, and let me tell you, they, too, leave out a lot of inconvenient details. They focus on the level of classified markings on some of the documents Trump had at Mar-A-Lago --- never mind that the President apparently had declassified them, and also that their classification level might have changed at some time before. Also, it’s funny how they never hearken back to the highly-classified State Department documents kept on Hillary’s highly-hackable private email server, or to the millions of documents Obama still has in his possession.

Bonchie at REDSTATE describes the pages and pages of black bars as representing “a giant middle finger to transparency by a federal bureaucracy that simply doesn’t care.” But even with all those redactions, he said, it was possible to glean that the raid originated not from hard evidence of criminal activity but in part from a local CBS News article involving the sighting of boxes and moving trucks. We found the article, which appeared January 18, two days before Trump was scheduled to be moved out of the White House. Believe it or not, this is it, a story called “Moving Trucks Spotted At Mar-A-Lago...

Stop the presses! Trump’s stealing classified nuclear secrets! Are they kidding? This is NOTHING. There were moving trucks outside Mar-A-Lago when Trump was in the process of moving home. This might even be more circular reporting, a favorite FBI ploy.

And one reason the National Archives, run by an obviously partisan bureaucrat, demanded documents remaining at Mar-A-Lago was that some papers that had already been sent to the Archives had classified markings on them. It appears that on that basis alone, the FBI immediately opened a criminal investigation of a former President.

Former Trump adviser Stephen Miller did not hold back: “This idea, spelled out in the affidavit, that the Archives sicced the FBI on President Trump --- on the premise that unelected bureaucrats, not POTUS, have final say on national security --- can only be construed as an attempt to overthrow our entire constitutional order.” The left, predictably, will attack that comment as “extreme,” but what’s really extreme is the behavior that prompted it: throwing the Constitution and the rule of law out the window, just out of hatred for one President and those who support him.

In case you’re still not convinced that those cheering the raid and calling Trump a “neo-fascist” are the ones who really are trying to override the will of the American people, here’s evidence that their suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop likely did change the outcome in 2020. Congratulations to President Biden, the FBI, Twitter, Facebook, and everyone who furthered the “Russian disinformation” lie. According to a new poll, 79 percent of those who have followed the story say they believe “truthful” coverage of the laptop story would have changed the outcome of the election. Majorities in both parties --- 89 percent of Republicans and even 61 percent of Democrats, plus 74 percent of independents --- think the laptop “is real.” And 81 percent want Attorney General Merrick Garland to appoint a special counsel to investigate matters related to it.

It’s too late to change 2020, but it seems most Americans are wising up and seeing who really is on the side of democracy and justice.  When the left responds with more name-calling, it's a bad look.

    RE: "Truly whipped". I just retired from working at a large public high school. Most kids I came across over the years shoplifted the canned whip cream. I have not seen canned whip cream abuse in a few years. Vapes have become the new instrument of drug administration and you have no way of knowing what the kid is smoking in them. Here they are not allowed in school, but good luck enforcing that. Vapes are very concealable and are designed to be so. Go into a restroom stall, back of the school bus seat hide behind your chrome book in class and vape away undetectable. There is a whole list of drugs that can be abused using a vape. Tax revenues and lobbyists from vape retailers and manufacturers make it no problem to our legislators. Most kids and adults start using a vape for the legal nicotine products thinking it's safer that cigarettes. And in my experience, it's not safer but worse! Far worse!

    Mr Huckabee
    i have been researching a law i once read that states, a patient has a choice of the qualifications of the individuals who make medical decisions affecting their lives,

    This law came about during the Obama Care and death panels debates.

    I would love to see coverage about this law, but if you would please if you can help me identify this statute, I am a disabled Veteran, i have a Dr who is trying to assist me in loosing weight and treat my early stage diabetes, but at every turn VA Healthcare refuses to cover anything my Dr recommends, and has even refused care or rationed care for my service connected injuries which i know is against the laws on the books.

    I seek to rediscover this law and utilize it to remove the Medical college school Dr.s who are making my healthcare decisions poorly whom have repeatedly remarked chiropractors, Dr of Osteopaths, are all quacks.

    As With VA Healthcare, it always seems to be a Bucket of Medications and Surgeries as their only solutions , surgeries not done by well qualified Drs.

    I am tired of being their Guniea Pig for experiments. Can you help me find this law that was passed,

    I am refreshed to see you becoming a little more militant in your disdain for the criminal behavior of this current administration; for far too long I felt that you have been far too forgiving and prone to give(at least the possibility) of the benefit of the doubt in the motivations of their actions and statements. You questioned them, but were slow to outright denounce them. That seems to have gone by the wayside, and none to soon!
    The reason I am writing is to point out that you are still apparently, if not buying into, still playing along with one of the left's deceits: you are still giving Biden credit for(or blame, but I suppose that is just semantics) for decisions coming out of the White House. "Come on, man"; we ALL know that individual can't summon the cognitive ability to tie his shoelaces. Please don't participate in the party lie that ANY kind of policy is being authored by Joseph Robinette Biden. Fully swallow the red pill and acknowledge that certain parties within the Whitehouse are doing all his thinking for him. I would be curious as to your theories on who those individuals are....

    They've been on the fighting' side of me for generations.

    It's sad to know they learned part of their tactics from "All the President's Men"

    Please help me and your readers understand why President Trump would want to have, in his personal possession, documents that could reveal the identity of our foreign informants, and why he chose to declassify those documents. I just don't get it.

    I am surrounded by a small college town population that overwhelming hates Trump more than Satan himself. They believe everything that comes out if the DNC controlled media and that .Biden speaks. How is it you can say that people are coming around? Most of our population has no idea what is going on. You try you best and thank the good Lord for you and people like you, but you have a limited audience most of whom are already conservative. A lot of people simply don’t want to be bothered. If they even go to the polls in a mid term election, they will most like vote as they always do. I mentioned to a liberal about how the accounting firms where really going to be busy with 85K more IRS agents. She said, yes, thank God they have been underfunding the IRS for years. This is typical how everything is turned around by these people. One if our local main line churches flies a rainbow flag. It is not enough to accept, one must celebrate. I was told how starting irreversible gender change procedures in young children saves lives. Please tell me how a doctor who has taken the oath can mutilate young children before they are old enough to make rational decisions. They can’t drive, vote, drink, smoke, live on their own or often even cross the street without a hand to hold but they can decide they want to be the opposite gender before they even know what that means. This is collective insanity. Science has totally gone out the window. Tell me how XX and XY are just social constructs. Tell me how men can be pregnant. I feel like I live in a giant Bedlam.

    Appointing AG Garland to investigate anything is like drinking Hemlock! It is bad that the RNC under Graham and his establishment have turned to supporting the left. I knew before the last elctions the fix was in.easy to hear from God when one knows Him! Now this next election already bought and paid for by Soros public statements and Googl blocking any pro life info.
    As a veteran I have little respect for those in Congress. Some are boytoys of Klaus Schwab I learned about recently. The nation in deep poop unless God involved
