My friend Mike Rowe is the latest to allegedly be targeted by the government for his political beliefs – even though he doesn’t even talk about his political beliefs!

https://www.theblaze.com/news/mike-rowe-dirty-jobs-permit

Mike says he was all set to shoot an episode of his show “Dirty Jobs” on boilermakers when the Government Services Administration suddenly yanked permits they’d had for months, claiming vague “security concerns.” It ruined months of costly preparation, caused his freelance crew to lose work and have no time to line up other jobs, and kept the boilermakers from being able to show America what they do.

Mike said he’s shot shows in all sorts of sensitive government environments, from the Capitol to a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, and never had a problem. Then he said he got a call from someone high up in the GSA, telling him that another GSA higher-up didn’t like his “personal politics” and deliberately strung him along just to yank the permits at the last possible second.

If true, this is not only yet another example of politicized bureaucrats arrogantly abusing their power, it’s also stupid. Mike Rowe doesn’t discuss his personal politics, and he pointed out that his foundation is “aggressively nonpartisan” and gives scholarships to liberals and conservatives alike. All he can figure is that the petty tyrant doesn’t like the fact that his show “How America Works” airs on Fox Business.

I’ll add that his great show “The Story Behind the Story” airs right after “Huckabee” Saturday nights on TBN. Maybe that’s why the GSA jerk’s nose was out of joint. I spend too much time telling you the sleazy stories behind how Washington works. And now, we have another one.

    This is just disgraceful. WHO is running the Administration Department? Has anyone ever answered that question? This USA does NOT have a President in that office, just a bunch of Radical Socialist, doing the bidding for Soros, Clinton, Pelosi. It is definitely NOT Derelict JOE. Why is this happening? I do not think the USA can Last to the end of 2022.
    Thank you for your daily briefings.

    I had to double check to be sure I wasn't reading a Babylon Bee article.

    The "higher up" person at GSA who pulled this petty and childish stunt needs to be outed and fired post-haste.

    I think Mike should expose the whiny cry baby in DC. We the people need to start standing up to this craziness. Seriously this is despicable.

    This issue encapsulates several issues of our time. Mike Rowe cancelled for political beliefs, an administration giving up sovereignty, the attack on our constitutional rights, the tragedy of Uvalde and the disgusting political posturing of our "leaders." Add the mismanagement of our economy, agenda-driven teachings in our schools, immoral lawlessness of this administration and its military blunders and that about sums it up. I hope the Republicans manage to sweep in November and return us to responsible leadership.

    We absolutely love Mike Rowe— his common sense way of explaining how things work or WHY things are necessary,should be required watching for children of all ages between 5 and 95! I think everyone could learn life lessons about work ethics’s and pride in accomplishing tasks that are given to us and how great it feels to do something for yourself that rewards you with a honest paycheck and you actually contribute to society with your own hands, just from watching his programs . He shows exactly what my parents taught me about earning my own way in life without putting my hands out and asking for handouts over doing something for myself. Jobs, each and every one with little exceptions like some political stuff made for political reasons, are necessary for everyone. How rude and rotten can anyone be to go after him and deny his company to make his program on another subject that just might inspire someone else to do. So sad and so wrong.

    Hey Governor! Mike, I'm afraid, is caught between the rock and the hard place. If he expresses his views someone will scream, if he doesn't someone else will scream. The whole idea is to keep people scared and off balance. It will backfire, I think. People are getting tired of being led around by the nose. When Jesus comes for the church then these government loudmouths can have free rein, it might not be as much fun. God bless you and yours, Governor. Heidi.

    So, then, I guess honest work is now a threat to the current regime. We had a word, back on the farm, for situations like this. Something regarding chickens, I seem to recall...

    What is your view of Replacement Theory especially in regards to recent disproportionate representation of blacks in TV ads (sorry for the PC question)?
