VP Harris Uses A New Excuse

By Mike Huckabee

With polls showing that majorities of Americans back voter ID laws, including minorities, the Democrats are getting desperate to come up with reasons to oppose them. That led to VP Kamala Harris’ hilarious new excuse:

It’s “almost impossible” for us deprived folk out in the hinterlands to provide a copy of our IDs because we ain’t got none of them fancy photocopiers like the city slickers do.

Why, ‘round these h'yer parts, we ain’t even got toilet paper. We have to use the New York Times.

Un-American Display Of Political Prosecution

By Mike Huckabee

In an outrageous and un-American display of political prosecution, many people charged in the January 6th violence at the Capitol have been held for months in deplorable conditions without bail, at least one in solitary confinement, while known violent left-wing rioters who attacked police and burned and looted other federal buildings are being released back onto the streets.

I’m all for prosecuting anyone who committed violence at the Capitol to the full extent of the law, but laws should be applied equally, with “blind justice.” That’s why the statue of justice is wearing a blindfold, not a “Biden/Harris” T-shirt. But check out the official charges against one of the alleged “insurrectionists”:

Basically, he’s accused of stepping inside the Capitol, standing off to the side, looking around for 13 minutes, then leaving. Obviously, he’s Public Enemy #1!

To see the Banana Republic-style prosecutorial standards based on people’s political beliefs, check out this handy compare-and-contrast chart:

Branson Goes To The Edge Of Space

By Mike Huckabee

Sunday, billionaire Richard Branson joined five crewmembers in traveling aboard the private Virgin Galactic aircraft VSS Unity to the edge of space. The rocket plane reached an altitude of 53.3 miles, high enough for Branson and the crew to see the darkness of space and the curve of the Earth and to experience weightlessness for four minutes before returning safely to the ground.

Some might dismiss this as a stunt by billionaires with giant toys, but it actually represents the beginning of a new era in space travel: the first space tourist on a privately-owned air/spacecraft. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos plans to launch into space in a few days in a craft made by his company Blue Origin, and Elon Musk’s SpaceX is already taking astronauts and cargo to the space station and planning a trip to Mars.

As a boy, my heroes were the Apollo astronauts, and I’ve always been a big booster of NASA and space exploration, which has resulted in technological advancements in every walk of life, even those that have nothing to do with space. I don’t think I’ll be getting on one of those rockets myself, but I’m glad to see that someone is. And if it has to be billionaires who are shot into space first, then I have a few suggestions.

Update On The Lego Insurrection

By Mike Huckabee

The Biden DOJ retracted a claim that it seized a “fully-constructed Lego set” of the US Capitol from one of the accused January 6th rioters. They admitted that the Lego set was still in the box and not constructed. Oh, well in that case, maybe he’s not an insurrectionist!

Something tells me this has more to do with ending the tidal wave of jokes, memes and ridicule about the “Lego Insurrection.” I also suspect that it will not work.

Biden Finally Speaks Up On Cuba

By Mike Huckabee

“Better Late Than Never” Dept: President Biden finally broke his silence and issued a statement in support of Cuban pro-freedom protesters -- albeit with a muddying reference to the pandemic that suggests they're protesting COVID, too.

Nice words in condemning the deadly oppressive nature of communism that’s enslaved Cuba for decades, but how about some policies to back them up? Obama left the pro-freedom protesters of Iran hanging. Will Biden show more support for the Cuban freedom fighters when he won’t even stand up to the socialist radicals in his own party?

Time To Celebrate

By Mike Huckabee

Time to celebrate another long-overdue court victory for former President Trump and for free speech and the right to create political satire. With the New York State Supreme Court finally dismissing this frivolous lawsuit as the groundless assault on the First Amendment that it was, how long will it take Twitter to reinstate the meme’s creator who was banned simply for being falsely accused of “misappropriating” copyrighted content when it was a textbook case of "fair use"? He assumes “never.” In a just world, there would be a legitimate lawsuit in that.
