THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT FILES A DISCRIMINATION LAWSUIT AGAINST FACEBOOK
By Mike Huckabee
Earlier this week, I wrote about an attempt to sneak into the coronavirus relief bill a measure to expand the H1-B work permit program, so that big tech companies could hire foreign workers with lower pay and fewer employee protection rights, instead of Americans.
Well, guess who’s allegedly been doing that anyway, in violation of the law? According to a discrimination lawsuit just filed by the Justice Department, it’s Facebook – the social media giant run by a billionaire who showers millions of dollars on groups that claim to promote “social justice.”
The DOJ accuses Facebook of “intentional and widespread violations of the law” by setting up a system that prevented qualified American workers from learning about and applying for jobs that were instead channeled to temporary visa holders; by reserving high-paying jobs for temporary visa holders; and by “essentially trapping temporary visa holders in an employment situation with limited job mobility while they wait potentially decades to adjust their immigration status.”
There are more details at the link, but I’ll just add this: Mark Zuckerberg supports “social justice?” “This claim is under dispute!”
NO, A RETURN TO NORMALCY IS NOT IN SIGHT
By Mike Huckabee
The upside of a potential Biden Administration, according to Democrats, is that we will see a return to “normalcy,” and once again, Americans can rest easy knowing that serious, sober, competent professionals will be in charge of the government. People who really understand what their jobs are about. Like Biden’s reported pick for Treasury Secretary, former Fed Chair Janet Yellen.
And what does she think are the most important priorities of a Treasury Secretary? Addressing racial inequalities, “gender disparity” and the climate crisis.
That’s not a return to “normalcy” by a longshot, but it would be a return to the Obama Administration.
AMERICAN HERO DIES
By Mike Huckabee
I’m sad to report that American hero Alonzo “Lon” T. Adams has died in Raleigh, North Carolina, from complications of COVID-19 at age 95.
Adams was a hero in more ways than one. He was a World War II veteran who fought in the Battle of the Bulge, where he survived despite being shot in the head. Later on, he became the hero of truckers and road-trippers across this great land when he developed the current formula/recipe for Slim Jims jerky. Slim Jims had been around since the 1920s, but the current irresistible version was the work of Mr. Adams, who spent more than 20 years perfecting it for Goodmark Foods.
Our prayers and sympathies for his family, and a big Huck’s Hero salute and a spicy beef “thank-you” to Lon T. Adams.
ANOTHER LEFTIST UNTETHERED FROM REALITY
By Mike Huckabee
I’ve pointed out on several occasions the baffling logic of so many leftists who want to put Trump supporters into concentration camps because we don’t see that Trump is like Hitler, or something like that. They accuse 74 million Trump voters of being disconnected from reality, when it is actually they who are untethered from reality, as John Daniel Davidson explains in this must-read article at the Federalist.
It’s too bad that nobody tried to warn our liberal coastal elites of how out-of-touch with America they were in their cast iron echo chambers, before Trump even got into politics. Oh, wait, someone did.
The latest foaming-at-the-keyboard vengeance seeker is Rick Wilson, editor-at-large of the leftist site The Daily Beast and advisor to the odious Lincoln Project, most recently seen doxxing and threatening President Trump’s attorneys. Wilson recently ranted from the safety of his office that Trump and “his cultists” must be punished for their “reign of terror” and that “only exposure, pain, humiliation, and…incarceration will lead to a moment of reckoning for the GOP. It should start at the top and work down from there.” There’s also a call for ritual suicides.
Wilson is lucky that he doesn’t work for a respectable news outlet, because that kind of garbage used to amount to ritual suicide for your journalism career. Now, “journalists” aren’t held to any higher standards than losers threatening people on Twitter from their moms’ basements.
At the link, law professor Jonathan Turley gives Wilson the stern lecture that his parents should have given him and reminds him and others of his ilk that their denial of the rights of conservatives to speak and defend themselves would have prevented Nick Sandmann from proving that their vicious allegations against him were completely false.
It’s a worthy read, but I’ll also add a point or two. I keep seeing all these intolerant “progressives” demanding that Trump supporters be rounded up, incarcerated, tortured, even killed. My question: who’s going to do it? You? You’re going to put down your kale salad and soy latte, squeeze into your tiny electric-powered car, and go round up those 74 million Trump-voting farmers, miners, truckers, cops, veterans and construction workers? The ones who own at least 300 million guns?
Or maybe you think you’ll order the military, whom you despise and who mostly voted for Trump, to round up their own families. Or perhaps you’ll order the police, who are already injured and overworked because you defunded them in the middle of riots, and already refusing to enforce unconstitutional coronavirus measures, to go arrest millions of well-armed but law-abiding citizens for voting the same way they did.
I suggest that instead of trying to turn your macho fantasies of world domination into reality (or embarrassingly stupid editorials) that you just keep turning them into comic books and childish CGI movies. It would be much safer for you. As a reminder, here’s how well it works out when Antifa radicals try assaulting people who aren’t elderly, kids or have their hands tied. These “social justice warriors” tried to attack some real warriors at a veterans’ rally. It didn’t go as they planned, particularly not for the guy at the 1:18 mark who hits the asphalt like a sack of hammers after one punch. (Careful: Note language in the Toby Keith soundtrack.)
Since I hate to end on a violent note, I’ll quote Proverbs 11:29: “He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind…” Or at best, get the wind knocked out of him.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
By Mike Huckabee
On Fox News’ “Hannity,” the always-quotable Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy, called the Georgia Senate runoff a “second Presidential election” that’s urgent for Republicans to win to prevent the passage of “barking mad” leftist legislation. Kennedy’s message to get Georgia Republicans to turn out in full force to vote was, “Look at it this way: if dead people can do it, so can you.”
