DAILY BIBLE VERSE
“If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.”
Romans 12:18 KJV
By Mike Huckabee
How badly has Vice President Kamala Harris botched her first big assignment, to clean up the disaster President Biden created on the border? Let me count the ways…
(1.) As of today, she’s had the assignment for 78 days and has yet to even visit the border…(2.) When asked about that by a reporter, she laughed oddly and said she hadn’t visited Europe either, as if she’s in charge of keeping Frenchmen from swimming across the Atlantic to enter New Jersey illegally…(3.) She went to Guatemala and was greeted by protesters with signs reading “Trump won,” “Go home” and “Guatemala is pro-life”…(4.) She claimed the root causes of illegal immigration were climate change and hostility to LGBTQ people…(5.) The President of Guatemala personally contradicted her by telling “Face the Nation” that the cause of the surge was Biden undoing Trump’s border security policies.
And now, to make it an even half dozen: she’s done such a lousy job that even the Biden White House is letting it be known that they are frustrated, perplexed and “not thrilled” with her inexplicably incompetent performance.
At this rate, she really needs to up her game if she ever hopes to take over the job of being President from Jill Biden.

Wednesday, US Customs and Border Protection released data from May showing that border agents stopped 180,034 people trying to cross the border with Mexico illegally. That’s a 21-year high, up from 178,622 stopped in April and 172,331 in March. That doesn’t include the ones that got past the border patrol, estimated at 40,000 in April.
Wow, the climate in Central America must be changing really fast!
Obama Defends CRT
By Mike Huckabee
Democrats are so worried about the public waking up to the threat of Critical Race Theory in schools and demanding an end to it that they trotted out former President Barack Obama to poo-poo their concerns. In his patented condescending fashion, Obama dismissed parents who are upset that their kids are being taught toxic, divisive, racist hate-mongering by claiming that it’s just “right-wing media” like Fox News (the favorite bogey man of the left) “stoking the fear and resentment of a white population that is witnessing a changing America.”
First of all, I think people are right to fear anyone who wants to change America into a Marxist dystopia where people are judged entirely by their skin color. And if America’s white population are paranoid racists who fear a changing America, then who elected him President twice? It wasn’t blacks, they’re only about 13% of the population.
In fact, even his supporters in deep blue places such as Manhattan and New Jersey are standing up against CRT, not out of irrational fear but out of perfectly rational fear. I refuse to believe that the majority of Americans of any race want to see the “changing America” that the racist, Marxist radicals pushing CRT want to impose on us.
But take heart: the fact that the Democrats feel the need to employ Obama giving us one of his “I’m so disappointed in you” lectures is a great sign that they’re the ones who are afraid. And when power-mad politicians are afraid of the people, that’s a good thing.
Radical Left Nazis
By Mike Huckabee
As someone who has visited Israel many times, as well as Europe’s former concentration camps, I have always been appalled at how lightly people toss around terms like “Nazi” and “Hitler” to tar their political opponents. It’s an insult to Holocaust victims to belittle their suffering to score cheap political points.
However, I’ve noticed that the media have a glaring double standard on this. Leftists can call conservatives Nazis all day long and nobody bats an eye. But if someone points out legitimate similarities between today’s radical left like Antifa and the tactics of the Nazis, they risk fierce condemnation and even losing their jobs, like actress Gina Carano.
That’s why this story poses a quandary: I don’t like Nazi analogies. I know that as a conservative, I’ll probably get attacked for making one. But when the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association publishes an article called “On Having Whiteness” by psychoanalyst Donald Moss, arguing that simply being white is a “malignant, parasitic-like condition” that makes white people hate and terrorize others, and for which there “is not yet a permanent cure”…how can that not bring to mind Nazi-era propaganda blaming all of Germany's problems on Jews and calling them parasites? If you trade out “white” for “Jew,” it’s virtually indistinguishable from “Mein Kampf.”
At least I can take comfort that I won’t be the only one attacked for pointing out the obvious, as you can see at the link. Others called it pure hatred, sick and evil, and racist psychobabble. One doctor said it made him want to throw his psychology degree in the garbage.
Shockingly, that was actually considered a “research paper,” based on accepted tenets of “Critical Race Theory” (which is why CRT needs to be kicked out of schools.) It even appeared in a peer-reviewed journal, meaning that other psychologists actually read that piece of vile, racist insanity and decided it was worthy of publication. That should forever destroy the credibility of “peer-review” in the psychiatric field.
Meanwhile, some peers of this author are much wiser about that garbage than he is. Meet the black Columbia University professor who’s urging any parents who are truly anti-racist to take their kids out of a New Jersey private prep school that’s adopting CRT before they’re taught that the essence of a person is “cringing, hostile group identity against oppression.”
In Loudon County, Virginia, where schools are pushing this racist propaganda, one brave teacher, Lilit Vanetsyan, became a celebrity overnight after a video went viral of her confronting the school board and accusing them of running “indoctrination camps” where kids are taught to hate themselves or others because of skin color and to “root for socialism by the time they get to middle school.”
Finally, check out this MUST-SEE video of a mom who survived China's Cultural Revolution blasting the Loudon County school board for promoting the same kind of bullying, brainwashing and thought crimes she had to endure under communism.
Keystone XL Cancelled
By Mike Huckabee
Despite a number of state Attorneys General launching legal challenges to President Biden’s pointless killing of the Keystone XL Pipeline project, it now appears that it is really quite sincerely dead. The developer, Canada’s TC Energy Corp, and the provincial government of Alberta say they’re abandoning the project. Alberta invested more than $1 billion in it thanks to the US commitment that Biden undid with a stroke of his executive order pen.
This decision will anger Canada, destroy American jobs, and make America less energy independent and fuel more expensive. It won’t even help the environment, since the oil will still have to get to the refineries, only via CO2-spewing trucks instead of a carbon-neutral pipeline. It’s obvious that the Wall Street Journal reporter quoted at the link was struggling to find some coherent justification for Biden’s actions: “It is a victory for environmentalists who have campaigned to block new pipeline construction as a way to limit oil consumption that contributes to global warming.”
News flash: blocking pipeline construction will not limit oil consumption. That’s like thinking that if you blow up the lunch wagon at your workplace, you’ll eat less. No, you’ll just put the driver out of a job, and you’ll still have to eat lunch. But now, you’ll have to obtain it in a more expensive, inconvenient way because, just like the US economy, your body still needs fuel.
While the Keystone XL Pipeline now seems DOA, some wags on the Internet suggested one possible way that it might be revived: Canada could declare itself part of Russia, and then Biden would approve the pipeline.
MSNBC: Not Reality
By Mike Huckabee
It’s always fun to see the crestfallen looks on liberal news channel anchors every time they’re forced to admit that something they devoted a ton of air time to has turned out to be phony baloney fake news. Here’s the latest example, from MSNBC’s Chuck Todd.
I already told you that an Inspector General’s report blew away the claim that then-Attorney General Bill Barr tear-gassed BLM protesters to clear them out of Lafayette Square so that President Trump could have a photo op. Actually, the Park Police cleared them out so that contractors could put up security fencing, and Barr and Trump had nothing to do with it.
I love the admission from correspondent Ken Dilanian that “The narrative we thought we knew is not the reality.”
Hey, I think we’ve just found the perfect motto for MSNBC!
