DAILY BIBLE VERSE
“And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”
By Mike Huckabee
The adults are back in the room, the best and the brightest are once again in charge, and competence and normality have returned. At least, that’s what we were told when Mr. “40 Years in the Senate and Never Right About a Single Issue” replaced Trump as President. Here’s today’s round-up of how well that’s going:
We now know more about why Afghanistan’s government and armed forces collapsed so swiftly, and it wasn’t inevitable at all. It was due to catastrophically dumb decisions made by Biden and his crew, who ignored warnings from military experts, closed down Bagram air base and pulled all the US air power and maintenance support that the Afghan forces needed before Americans were out or the nation was secured. He also did it during what’s known in Afghanistan as “fighting season,” when the Taliban are primed to attack, rather than waiting until the bitter winter was starting, when they tend to go home and hunker down.
In short, the disaster wasn’t necessarily in the pullout, but in the way the pullout was handled. Biden can point all the fingers on both hands, but this tragic and humiliating military, security and humanitarian catastrophe is his to own.
And here’s some more on that from Austin Bay…
There are as many as 15,000 Americans essentially trapped behind enemy lines in Afghanistan, and the Biden White House apparently has no plan to get them out.
Well, other than assuring us everything will be fine and assuming the Taliban will keep its promises. That’s already working out just great…
I particularly enjoyed this statement:
"Our message remains for American citizens and for others who have expressed interest in relocation out of Afghanistan: shelter in place until and unless you receive a communication from the U.S. embassy." Yes, I’m sure a number of people have “expressed interest in relocation out of Afghanistan.” They make it sound like they're looking for a real estate agent.
Here’s some info on the billions of dollars’ worth of US military equipment that’s being left behind for the Taliban to use against us.
Another thing Biden was supposed to return to the White House was the respect of other nations. That’s going just swimmingly…
It appears likely that the Biden White House inadvertently revealed the identities of CIA operatives in dangerous places for the sake of a photo op.
One of the current leaders of the Taliban that helped it rise back to power is a familiar name, since he’s one of the five terrorists released from Gitmo by Barack Obama in exchange for Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl.
China, seeing Biden’s obvious weakness and reluctance to stand by our allies, is setting the stage for war and threatening to retake Taiwan.
So all told, the country’s in the very best of hands! Well, if voters wanted "normal" back, they got it. Personally, I preferred prosperity, secure borders, energy independence, Middle East peace and the occasional mean tweet.

Last night, former President Trump gave an exclusive interview to Sean Hannity on Fox News. He blasted Biden, saying of the Taliban rout of Afghanistan, “Our country has never been so humiliated,” and that the images of terrified Afghans clinging to planes and falling to their deaths “blow away” the horrors of the fall of Saigon. Trump also made it clear how differently the pullout would have been handled if he were still in charge. You can read and see more from that interview at this link.
Rating Kamala Harris
By Mike Huckabee
Vice President Kamala Harris has a pretty dismal approval rating, but she’s still popular on America’s college campuses, where young people who don’t know any better get spoonfed daily doses of leftist indoctrination that can’t hold up to facts or logic. To prove it, Campus Reform took its camera to Georgetown University to ask students’ opinions on Harris.
Not surprisingly, they gushed about how “amazing” it is to have a woman of color as Vice President. They were asked if they approved of her achievements and the policies she champions. Oh, yes, those are great, too! Then came the killshot: Could you please name a few of her policies you agree with and her achievements you approve of?
“Uh…could we cut this part out?” No, they couldn't name a single achievement.
Harris certainly won’t be able to cite “good timing” as one of her accomplishments, since she’s already taking flak for her plans to go ahead with a scheduled Asian trip that will include a stop in (déjà vu) Vietnam.
But in her defense, and I mean this sincerely, Harris may have one accomplishment to point to, and that’s her refusal to let Biden throw her under the bus on Afghanistan. There were stories that she was involved in the botched pullout planning, and she was reportedly being set up to give a press conference on Afghanistan on Sunday, while Biden was still hiding out at Camp David. That never happened, and an inside White House source told Becker News that Harris was overheard yelling, “They will not pin this (BLEEP) on me!”
Other liberals, from Nancy Pelosi to Stephen Colbert (who obscenely tried to concoct a moral equivalency by comparing the handful of unarmed jerks in the Capitol on January 6th to the Taliban), are twisting themselves into pretzels and setting fire to their own reputations trying to paper over Biden’s tragic incompetence. But if Harris really had nothing to do with his Afghanistan debacle, and she had the spine to refuse to take the blame and save Biden from responsibility for his own actions, then that’s something I can actually respect.
Another Biden Disaster
By Mike Huckabee
I hate to write about nothing but the disaster that President Biden has wrought in Afghanistan. But in looking for anything else in the news, I keep finding things like this: the disaster he’s wrought of our energy independence. It turns out that attacking our domestic fuel industry and then begging OPEC to save us was not a good strategy. Who knew?!
Accusation Of Bullying On The USWNT
By Mike Huckabee
Former US women’s soccer team goalkeeper Hope Solo said she believes star player and leftist activist Megan Rapanoe bullied some of the other players into taking a knee during the National Anthem.
It would be ironic but par for the course for leftists to virtue-signal opposition to “oppression” by oppressing other people into knuckling under to their views.
Solo said there are “so many political issues for athletes” and they feel like they’re “carrying the weight of the world on their backs…There’s been a lot of pressure, and ultimately at the end of the day, our number one focus should and has always been to win first.”
Except that Rapanoe’s divisive influence and political grandstanding might have helped the US team that was favored to win first come in third instead. The best response to anyone, on your team or off, who tries to pressure you to take political stands that you think don’t belong on the field isn’t to get disheartened or to cave in. It’s to tell the agitator, “Politics belong off the field. We’re here to win. If you can’t contribute 100% to that goal, then leave and make room for someone who can.”
Your Tuition Dollars At Work
By Mike Huckabee
Meet ultra-woke University of Michigan Prof. Deborah Ball, who is frustrated that her colleagues won’t get on board her war on math classes. You see, mathematics is dominated by racism and white supremacy (oddly enough, I’m pretty white, but I never found algebra to be particularly easy, nor did any math teachers ever go easy on me.)
But hold on, she’s just getting started. You haven’t even heard yet about how “unsafe” math class is for immigrants, indigenous peoples and LGBTQIA+ students. And how can you oppressively insist that 2+2=4 when someone else might identify as living in a world where it equals 7? God, please protect me from ever getting on a plane designed by someone who took Woke Math Class.
A great point from the article: our schools are obviously run by a bunch of woke leftists, yet they themselves keep telling us our schools are cesspools of racism and white supremacy. So whose fault would that be? I guess if you want to protect your kids from all that racism, you should homeschool them. Bonus: they might actually learn real math.
