Trans Weightlifter Flames Out

By Mike Huckabee

To the surprise of many, New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard, the first transgender Olympic athlete to compete in women’s events, flamed out and lost to weightlifters who were, you know…actually born female.

As the article at notes, defenders of allowing biological males who’ve “transitioned” to compete against women will treat Hubbard’s failure as evidence that they have no unfair physical advantage. But there were two major factors in this case that worked to counter Hubbard’s unfair advantage. The first is age: Hubbard didn’t start taking female hormones until the age of 34 and is now 43, by far the oldest person in the competition.

The second is that weightlifters don’t all lift the same weight. They choose how much they’ll lift with the total of three lifts comprising their scores. By attempting to lift 120 kg (264.5 lbs.), 125 kg (275.5 lbs.) and 120 kg (failing on the first and third lifts), Hubbard tried to lift too much weight. I hope she didn't give herself a hernia. Some might attribute this to “male ego,” but I’m sure that was surgically removed.

Frankly, Hubbard’s loss was the best thing that could have happened to the transgender movement. Imagine how it would have looked on TV to millions of viewers if Hubbard had cleanly lifted so much weight, then stood there towering over the competition and accepting the gold.

Also as noted, Hubbard still got lots of adulatory press coverage for “making history” while the actual winners of the event were completely overlooked. None of the stories that I saw that fawned over Hubbard’s “accomplishment” even mentioned the winners. I had to do a Google search and dig deep into the Olympics website to discover that the gold went to China’s Li Wenwen, the silver to Great Britain’s Emily Jade Campbell and the bronze to American Sarah Elizabeth Robles. Congratulations, ladies: you’re the ones who made Olympic history.


Ilhan Omar Wants To Spend Other People's Money Again

By Mike Huckabee

Rep. Ilhan Omar and some of her fellow far-far-left colleagues are pushing a bill they call the SUPPORT Act (I guess that sounded better than the HAMMOCK Act) that would give $1200 a month to people making less than $75,000 a year or heads of household making less than $112,500 a year, plus $600 per child. This would be a first step toward a national “guaranteed income.” Because paying people for doing nothing is working out so well right now.

Omar declared, "Poverty is a choice. For too long we have prioritized endless growth while millions are homeless, hungry or without healthcare. We as a nation have the ability to make sure everyone has their basic needs like food, housing and healthcare met.”

Hoo-boy, where to start? I guess with the fact that America already takes care of those who genuinely need food, housing and healthcare. We spend hundreds of billions of dollars every year on programs like Medicaid, Section 8 housing and SNAP food assistance. If we wanted to spend even more on those programs, maybe we could secure the border and stop letting millions of illegal immigrants suck up so much public assistance funding that could go to Americans, especially veterans. Just spit-balling here.

Second, prioritizing growth has enabled us to create the most dynamic economy in the world, one that was creating plenty of jobs and rising wages up until a Chinese virus and Democrat politicians strangled it (and somehow, Trump got blamed for that.)

I do agree with her on one thing: in some cases, poverty is a choice. Don’t get me wrong: there are plenty of people who are poor through no fault of their own. But then, there are those who make the mistake of listening to the false promises of leftist politicians who promise them things for free in exchange for their freedom. Like a subsistence wage for no work. Leftists hope you choose to stay in poverty because that keeps you dependent on government and them in power.

But one of the problems with socialist ides like this is that there is no magical forest full of money trees, so all that free stuff has to be paid for by someone else. As soon the people paying for it realize it’s not worth it to keep producing when the government is just going to take away the fruits of their labor and give it to the non-productive, then they become nonproductive, too.

And that’s when America becomes Venezuela.


Absolute Catastrophe

By Mike Huckabee

If you’d like to see what the Biden DOJ is suing the state of Texas to keep them from preventing, here’s drone footage of an unprecedented mass of illegal entrants at the border. It’s described by Rep. Elise Stefanik, with admirable understatement, as "An absolute catastrophe from Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and House and Senate Democrats."

COVID Material

By Mike Huckabee

I have so much material about COVID, facemasks, the Delta variant, the longing by leftists to shut down the economy again, etc., but I don’t feel like dealing with it on a Monday. So I’ll just point to my interview over the weekend with Dr. David Aronoff, who explains what’s going on far more clearly than the CDC, Dr. Fauci or (Heaven forbid!) President Biden have.

I’ll also let the satirical site the Babylon Bee sum it all up perfectly in one story. Actually, one headline may be enough, but read the story, too:

I’ll also direct you to the great Kurt Schlichter, who imagines what things might be like if only the people in charge hadn’t played politics, abused their power, refused to admit when they were wrong, and flat-out lied to us for 18 months.

And I’ll toss in this, only because the quote from Dr. Fauci is so outrageous.

GETTR Update

By Mike Huckabee

Politico reports that GETTR, a free-speech social media network launched by members of former President Trump’s inner circle, is being plagued with accounts opened by Islamic State terrorists who are posting pro-jihad propaganda and disgusting beheading videos.

For the record, yes, this does violate their terms of service. But in a small start-up, monitoring everything that’s posted 24/7 from all over the world and removing every offensive video is like trying to drink from a firehose. That’s why these thugs target smaller sites. GETTR and all such start-ups will have to figure out how to remove these posts quickly without infringing on legitimate free speech, even speech that some people might find offensive. The whole point of the First Amendment is to protect controversial speech, since nobody would object to non-controversial speech. The Founders expected us to have the sense to let bad ideas be exposed so we could debate and reject them.

Before anyone attacks GETTR, though, I would remind them that aside from the obvious, such as beheading videos, it sometimes isn’t easy to know where to draw the line between controversial but protected speech and speech that doesn’t deserve protection. Twitter banned the President of the United States while allowing Iran’s radical leaders to continue posting Death-to-America propaganda. Seems like that would have been an easy call, but no.

Do Not Displease Our Big Tech Overlords

By Mike Huckabee

YouTube banned Sky News, the Australian conservative TV channel, from uploading any new content for a week for allegedly spreading “misinformation” about COVID 19. YouTube declined to identify which videos violated its policies, but said, "We don't allow content that denies the existence of Covid-19 or that encourages people to use hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin to treat or prevent the virus."

Sky News responded, “We take our commitment to meeting editorial and community expectations seriously" and that it "expressly rejects that any host has ever denied the existence of COVID-19 as was implied, and no such videos were ever published or removed." They also posted an editorial calling YouTube’s decision "a disturbing attack on the ability to think freely" and claiming that the suspension was actually "for publishing opinion content the tech giant disagrees with,” adding, "It is hard not to look at some of these tech giant censorship decisions as being based on one factor, the political persuasion of the person making the comments."

Indeed, Sky News has lately been one of the leading voices questioning President Biden’s mental fitness. They’ve had some pretty blunt comments on that subject that would give any YouTube-approved liberal media outlet a case of the vapors. If you don't believe me, wait a week and then look them up on YouTube.

    Dear Sir, Please don't try to force the vaccine on us, or convince us that it's safe. This liar that you had on, said that 1 in 100 (hospitalized) people die of COVID which is patently false--how on earth did you not catch that? I will go on the evidence of my own eyes--I know exactly one person, in my extended wide circle of acquaintances, who "might" have died of covid 19. (Of course, I know that many ((supposedly)) have.) But in my personal circle, I can count at least 7 people who were either badly injured OR died within 2 weeks of the vaccine, from causes that were not present beforehand. They are all ages, (and some will not get any older.) I have a vaccine-injured child myself, and have personally seen the rise in seizure disorders, in 25 years, go from an incidence of 1 in 100 to 1 in 26. Honest doctors admit that the #1 serious side effect from vaccines is a seizure (and it's never "just one".) Please, sir, we trust you for real facts, real sense on things...please vet your guests more carefully and don't buy into this. We have 100s of 1000s of reports of problems with this vaccine, including healthy teens suddenly saddled with a life-long condition. Please look into this further. Thank you.

    Recently Governor Inslee of Wa State signed in to law least 6 bills that affect the police, making it more difficult to do their job. He said he had to do this because of racism. All these laws should have gone before the people for a vote. One such law was about "reasonable suspicion". And recently a well loved officer, husband and father was killed (Deputy Jeremy Brown). The last time an officer was killed in Vancouver, Wa. was 15 years ago. The NAACP put out a statement that this occurred because of a system problem. No NAACP, this happened because there are evil people in the world.
    I hope your readers will pray for Clark County, Wa State, ad the protection of the wonderful officers we have in Vancouver, Clark County, and Washington State. Deputy Brown left behind a wife and young family. They ask for your prayers.

    Hi Mike
    Here's a wild, crazy, off the cuff, totally crazy idea. Have Kurt Schlichter on your TBN program, which by the way I watch religiously. He could be a switch hitter. Political guest and comedian. You could even have an all Kurt special. It would be so much fun watching him filet the progressives. Not to mention informative.

    A few thoughts. I saw your interview with the doctor and immediately noticed he was spewing Fauci's and CDC's talking points Hundreds of virologists worldwide with years of knowledge have consistently rejected the CDC and Fauci and exposed their manipulative tricks. The CDC accepted 1 study that was rejected and stamped as denied the CDC pulled it off the web and changed it. The study done with a drug not accepted in the USA! You need truly ethical and honest "experts"
    I use SkyNews and two other sites among many. One is Epoch Times and WION which have reporters on the ground.
    I left a church because the leadership accepted the federal takeover like the CCP has done.
    So much rank corruption should be exposed.
    To bad you broadcast on a network that mostly pushes heretical "teachers" because they make big bucks.

    I was extremely disappointed with the doctor you had in your program this past Saturday about Covid variant and vaccines. You may as well of had Fauci on. Why don’t you talk about Covid treatment and that success with Doctor Peter McCullough or the doctor who was part of one of the vaccine creations who wouldn’t take the vaccine. It felt like you caved. There are many deaths and other health emergencies from the vaccine. There are effective treatments-highlight them.
