6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

A vaccine for young children

By Mike Huckabee

Monday, Pfizer reported that its COVID vaccine is safe for 5-11-year-olds. This was taken as a likely sign that the FDA will approve it and the Biden Administration might mandate it, since the Delta variant is more transmissible and has infected more children. But that was a bridge too far for many parents who think it should be their decision whether the risks of COVID to their children outweigh the risks of possible side effects from a vaccine with no longterm studies.

That hesitancy caused some media figures like columnist David Frum to slam reluctant parents as “Anti-vaxxers,” which has become a kneejerk pejorative hurled at anyone who has questions about the vaccines, no matter how reasonable. Megyn Kelly took Frum to the woodshed over that.

As I’ve said repeatedly, I’ve been vaccinated, and like the vast majority of people, I’ve had no negative side effects. But that doesn’t mean that other people who might be particularly susceptible, or especially parents concerned about their children, should be attacked, ridiculed or told to just shut up when they have legitimate concerns that deserve to be addressed.

It’s likely that the questions are going to multiply in light of the latest undercover video release by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas. It came from a whistleblower who’s a registered nurse at a Health and Human Services-affiliated medical center. She recorded conversations with doctors and other nurses about the high number of patients with serious vaccine side effects and their concern that these reactions weren’t getting reported by the government. One doctor complained that they want “to shove it under the mat.”

If the CDC and other government health agencies want Americans to trust them, then they need to openly address people’s concerns and stop trying to bully them into submission. That only makes them more suspicious. If they’re ever going to win back the public’s trust, the first step would be to start acting trustworthy.

Growing, not hollowing

By Mike Huckabee

I’m not surprised at all to discover that yet another liberal media narrative about President Trump has proven to be false. Because of his support among Evangelicals, it was predicted that people would flee from that religious designation and Trump would “hollow out” Evangelical Christianity. But according to a new Pew Research Survey, that’s not what’s happened.

There are a lot of stats at the link, but this one will give you an idea of the general direction. When Trump was elected in 2016, 25% of White Americans self-identified as Born Again or Evangelical Protestants. By 2020, the figure was up to 29%. Not exactly an Exodus.

The Rev. Franklin Graham told Fox News that many Presidents paid lip service to Evangelicals but Trump was the first in decades who welcomed people of faith around him and was willing to fight for their side. But Graham also reminds us that the Bible says we should pray for those in authority, so he prays for President Biden. I also pray for him to have good health and wisdom, but not for success in imposing his agenda. Preventing that is covered by the other prayer I pray: “God, save America.”

Fake "OUTRAGE!!" Story of the Day

By Mike Huckabee

Leftist politicians and media figures went berserk over a video that they thought showed Border Patrol agents on horseback whipping Haitian illegal immigrants at the border. It was called unfathomable racist cruelty. But a Border Patrol source says those agents don’t carry whips. The leather straps in the photos are the horses’ reins. The agents sometimes spin the reins to warn people to stay back for their own safety, but they say to their knowledge, nobody has been struck with a rein, much less a whip.

So much for expecting Northeastern liberals to understand “The Cowboy Way.” But if they don’t want to waste all that “OUTRAGE!!” how about aiming it at something that deserves it? Like the fact that we now have tens of thousands of illegal immigrants streaming across the border?

"Nobody knows"

By Mike Huckabee

Former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb admitted on “Face The Nation” that the six-foot social distancing rule that authorities have been drumming into us for over a year is “arbitrary in and of itself” and “nobody knows where it came from.” (This shouldn’t surprise longtime readers since we told you last year that it was based on nothing but guesswork. Science!!)

It makes sense to keep your distance from people whenever a contagious disease is going around, but Gottlieb also admitted that that arbitrary six-foot distancing is the major reason schools shut down. After the Biden Administration got it reduced to three feet, classes were able to reopen again.

It’s also the reason some people were going around with yardsticks and yelling at other people who were only five-feet-nine-inches apart. So now, they know what they can do with those yardsticks.

The story gets worse

By Mike Huckabee

I thought the saga of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “Tax The Rich” designer gown at the $30,000-a-ticket Met Gala was so ludicrous, it couldn’t possibly get worse. But with each passing day since, it has.

Now, the New York Post has done a deep dive into the finances of the gown’s designer, Aurora James, who accompanied AOC (and whom AOC described as a black female immigrant, even though she’s from a suburb of Toronto.) It seems that since 2015, her company has been hit with 15 warrants related to taxes, including failure to remit employees’ payroll taxes, not carrying workers’ comp insurance, and failure to withhold workers’ income taxes. That is, when her workers GOT income: some complained that she ran a sweatshop and made interns work full time with no pay.

She also has a string of unpaid debts in multiple states and despite taking a hefty PPP loan during the pandemic, she bought a $1.6 million house in the Hollywood Hills which is already listed as delinquent for property taxes.

I look forward to her upcoming line of “Tax OTHER Rich People” clothing. That will probably be even more popular with Democrat politicians.

Brace yourself for this story

By Mike Huckabee

Did you think that the story about the suicide bomber who killed 13 US service members and over 100 civilians in Kabul was about as bad as it could get? Well, brace yourself. The bomber has now been identified, and it just got worse.

    Re: border patrol whipping immigrants:
    Being from Texas this was a no brained… whips don’t look like reins. Safety around horses is kept by this simple method.
    My (bigger) question:
    How is this a ‘chargeable offense’ when women in Afghanistan are beaten down with hoses? Beaten and killed because of Biden. Where is the real outrage? Don’t let up on reporting on our (not) forgotten allies in Afghanistan.
    Girls who have never known life under Sharia law try to protest and get horrific punishments! Not to mention the marking of homes with young girls and women (for Isis to claim as battle brides)
    We are better than this as a country - except for Biden’s handlers. It has got to stop!
    Thank you for letting me vent.
    Michelle from Texas

    Just an FYI-I just got my booster vaccine for tdap. The pharmacist said the whooping cough is on the rise because so many childhood diseases are on the rise. We had an open conversation about the crisis on the border and the penetration into the US interior & he was exceptionally discussed with the politics on both sides. As much as I'm disgusted with the news, I would like to see the ongoing disgraceful news on the 13 military people & the 10 innocent Afghan people killed. The news must keep hammering this administration with all their bad policies. It took 9 months for this idiot in the oval office to bring this country down. It took us 200+ years to get to where we are today, actually it was 2020.
    Also, what a disgrace Biden is on the world stage.

    Vaccine hesidency, has anyone seen the latest VAERs report. Over 14,000 deaths included in the three quarters of a million serious adverse events. The risk is worth the benefits???? I have serious reservations especially for young people and recovering covid patients.

    Trump and the "election" ??? loss made losers of most Americans the biggest losers are the Conservative population. We the people have been under attack on so many fronts while Democrats really haven't noticed much change in their lifestyle at all. They like being told what. how, when to do daily functions and have the government pay for their functions the idea of work is strange to them the idea of home ownership is strange to them law and order is strange to them most democrats like defunding police without police and civil behavior does not happen, so the beat goes on, in our Urban settings, on our border, foreign policies all are losers and the defeat of America continues due to the insane Democrat.

    Could you please follow up on this. I think he is being misrepresented. At least I pray he is.

    When Mr. Tump left the White House we were worried about one thing, COVID and the affect it was having on health, lives and small business. Within eight months of the new administration, we are worried about the above plus thousands crossing our border, some with COVID, many unvaccinated, possible terrorists, cartel members, MS 13 members, unaccompanied children many of whom will be delivered to prostitution, the provision on medical needs, food and shelter as well as bilingual school to who knows how many, , etc. our relationships with other countries have deteriorated, China is saber rattling, N. Korea sent off a middle toward Japan, Iran is back in the nuke business, the .French recalled their ambassador, the stock market has dropped and is unstable, inflation is rapidly going up, domestic gas and oil production is down and fuel is flowing nicely across Europe but not in the US. Oil will be transported by train which is risky and puts toxins in the air. Our President, no matter how you excuse it, is obviously rapidly losing mental acuity and physical endurance and we are being led by who knows whom. Our military is going off the rails, worrying more about PC than being a fighting unit. We have insane amounts of debt and more is wanted. Many of our cities are filthy with the leavings of the homeless and we are not helping them off the street. Law enforcement is in shambles, including a biased FBI. The Constitution is just an idealistic piece of paper no longer followed. The Federal government is interfering in things belonging to the states. We are getting close to a banana republic. There is practically no place, but here, to get unbiased news. Most of the country has no idea of what is going on. The governments has succeeded in causing the country to become hysterical about COVID. This is bad infection but better treatments have become available, as well as highly effective vaccinations. While it is reasonable to be quite concerned, this is nowhere near as devastating as the mass infections of the past, polio, smallpox, leprosy, plague, malaria, Spanish influenza, to name a few. But the really good news that mitigates it all is there are no mean tweets, no high energy rude rascal at the helm.
