Dishonorable discharge

By Mike Huckabee

This is one of the least-talked about but most important stories of the day. It’s about how President Biden isn’t merely demanding that all military service members get vaccinated for COVID or resign, he’s insisting that those who decline be dishonorably discharged. He also refuses to recognize an exemption for those previously infected, despite a growing number of studies showing natural immunity to be superior to vaccination.

Republicans and some Democrats in Congress are fighting Biden on this, but with Democrats in charge, it’s doubtful they’ll be able to stop him. And just to be clear, the difference between an honorable and a dishonorable discharge is massive.

As Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall put it, a dishonorable discharge means “you’re never going to be able to get a job again. You’re going to lose your Second Amendment rights. They’re going to take away your VA health care benefits and your education.” Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford added that it means you’ll be “treated worse than a convicted felon.”

We’re talking about United States military troops who have made incredible sacrifices for their country and put their lives at risk to defend us all, many of them for a number of years, being condemned to that kind of treatment and losing all the benefits they've earned simply because they refuse a vaccine they don’t trust or don’t believe they need. Even if you think that’s a legitimate reason to discharge someone from the military, why would anyone be so petty as to condemn people whom we should be treating as heroes to so much hardship by making their discharge dishonorable?

This comes from a man who not only ran as a moderate, unifying return to “decency,” but who also never served a day in the military himself (he got a deferment from Vietnam for having asthma as a teenager.) It’s a nasty, groundless, vindictive and unpatriotic policy, and President Biden should be ashamed of himself for even thinking of imposing it.

Time to suspend Biden's Facebook and Twitter accounts

By Mike Huckabee

President Biden is awfully adamant in laying down rules about COVID-19 and vaccination when he doesn’t even seem to understand the subject himself. For instance, if vaccination works, then how are unvaccinated people “endangering” the vaccinated? And this week, he claimed that healthcare workers must all be vaccinated so that those seeking care have the certainty that their caregivers cannot spread COVID to them.

Problem: that's completely false. His own CDC has stated that while vaccinated people may carry the virus for a shorter time than the unvaccinated, “fully vaccinated people with Delta variant breakthrough infections can spread the virus to others.”

I eagerly await the news that Biden’s Facebook and Twitter accounts will be suspended for spreading deadly misinformation.

Do we really want green energy?

By Mike Huckabee

The worldwide shortage of energy is forcing many nations to go back to using coal-fired power plants that were shut down in an overly-ambitious attempt to do away with carbon emissions. This has caused the price of coal to hit its highest level in a decade.

That would normally be great news for America’s coal-mining industry except for one thing: we barely have one anymore because Obama openly declared war on it to stop global warming. Remember John Kerry telling all the unemployed coal miners that they could get jobs building solar panels? Now the world is facing energy shortages and blackouts, and the solution is a fuel that we have in abundance but can’t supply anymore.

One of the hardest-hit nations is Germany, which (coincidentally?) also gave the most power over its energy supply to the greens. They shut down their coal and nuclear plants in favor of unreliable and inadequate green energy sources. For instance, they built a lot of solar panels, which last winter stopped functioning because they were covered with snow and ice during Europe’s coldest winter in a decade (wait, I thought snow and ice were a thing of the past…)

Here in America, the Biden White House is following the same disastrous plan on steroids, with massive amounts of spending planned on green energy initiatives while shutting down our domestic oil and gas industries and blocking new nuclear plants. Within months, we've already gone from energy independence back to begging OPEC to produce more oil. It’s a recipe for disaster that anyone with a brain could see coming just by looking at Germany’s experience. Sadly, we are currently under an Administration that not only can’t learn from others’ mistakes, it can’t even learn from its own.

More math challenges

By Mike Huckabee

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki blamed President Biden’s low approval ratings on their favorite punching bag: the 20% of Americans who refuse to get vaccinated.

FYI: in the latest Quinnipiac University poll, Biden’s approval rating is at 38% with 53% disapproving and 55% saying he’s not competent to do the job. I'm not a statistician, but I don’t think you can blame those last two numbers on 20% of the population.

A broken leftist brain

By Mike Huckabee

Nicole Hannah-Jones, the creator of the anti-American and historically illiterate “1619 Project” was roundly mocked for her attempt to brand school choice advocates as racist. In her never-ending quest to brand everything as white supremacy, Hannah-Jones tweeted, "Why do 'school choice' advocates never advocate eliminating school district boundaries/funding schools by local property tax and allowing poor, Black students to attend white, wealthy schools in neighboring municipalities? They don't really want choice, just privatization."

She was quickly answered by people telling her that she’d just described precisely what school choice advocates like me have promoted for years: giving all students (especially poor black students stuck in a cycle of poverty because of bad inner city public schools run for the benefit of teachers’ unions instead of students) vouchers to attend safe, superior schools anywhere they want. She was actually arguing against school choice by arguing for school choice.

    Dear Mike,
    I hope you still read the comments, 'cause this one is really important! Please go to this link and read the whole thing, but the worst part is copied below. Please do whatever is needed to vet it, and then please let your readers know so they may contact their politicians. Please contact your conservative politician friends and let them know. While the site has a place to fill in to 'send a message to your Senator' we live in NY so figure Schumer @ best would just ignore it, or @ worst helped bury it in there. Anything enclosed in (( )) I added into the text to make it easier to find @ the congressional link.
    Thank you for being a watchman on the wall.
    May God bless and keep you always!

    Recently Forbes reported a shocking insertion into pending federal legislation that would impose fines of up to $700,000 (("SEC. 21004. ADJUSTMENT OF CIVIL PENALTIES." Vaccine verbiage starts @ "SEC. 31022. FUNDING FOR STRENGTHENING VACCINE CONFIDENCE.")) per infraction for companies failing to meet testing and vaccine mandate requirements imposed by President Biden, buried on page 168 of the House Democrat's 2,465 page mega-bill revising OSHA requirements

    The original language was initially sponsored by Congressman John Yarmuth (D-KY-3) as HR 5376 (( )) before being added to the larger omnibus bill. If this succeeds, these fines will go into effect January 1, 2022 and drive companies into submission to government mandated vaccines with no reprieve.
    What do we do now?

    What we intercessors have always done! Pray and ACT!

    Cry out to our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Father if it is your will for this to come to fruition then we ask that You would help us take our stand in faith. If it is not Your will for this to succeed, we ask that this - and all legislation like it - would fail.

    Some of the polls need a third option. Example Do you approve of Biden / Harris? Yes, No but need a third option no, but I didn’t approve of Trump / Pense either. Wonder what kind of results you could crow about with a poll written like that? Like buying a car you can make numbers say what you want to get the results you want.

    Why, you ask would Biden want to hurt the military so much? Why is he so adamant about the vaccine? I believe it’s to prove he can. If he can control and hurt the country so much by doing this and have people fall in line, think of the power trip. It will soon be time to go on to the next mandate, etc. When someone is starting down the dementia path I should think it would be easy to plant these ideas and build a zealot. “Come on Joe, you are the President, show them what you can do. Prove your power. “

    in truth except for a few members of Congress and a few people like you everyone is just going along. We are worried but don’t see what we can until next year and even the with the damage being done so quickly, the power of the media, shutting down conservative speakers, and the voting manipulation that is sure to take place by people who have no conscious as we define it, it is very iffy if the GOP will prevail.

    The more I read the more corrupt I realize Republicans are! They will say anything do anything to keep their campaign contributions coming from Big Oil. We need Green Energy like yesterday. I’m convince most of the stories from both Democrat and Republican commentators - scare tactics. Build a straw man. So our choice is still Socialism versus Fascism. But there is one more option. Refuse to vote for either major party and vote Libertarian! I am entertained by both the Republican and Democratic commentators trying to line their adherence up. Kind of like when I worked in Broadcasting and watched championship wrestling. On camera hated each other. Behind the sense it was all slap stick we pulled one over on the viewers. Glen Beck is one of the best with the game. Would love to see him against Jerry Lawlet.

    I don't understand why we the people know that this guy is not really Biden he is a fake who Hollywood has made to look like him. Really look at older pics of him . The real Biden had a stroke. He is in the military Hospital I don't know remember what the name of it is it's where they all go guarded by military people keeping this a secret. have you ever noticed that his wife doesn't even walk near this guy. Investigate for yourself this guy has a different nose shape ears he doesn't have the same hair really look at him.
