This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24

The Jobs Report

By Mike Huckabee

Compared to the last Administration’s program to “Make America Great Again,” I question whether expecting a million new jobs as the economy emerges from lockdown and getting a pathetic 266,000 while the unemployment rate rises really qualifies as “Building Back Better.”

Psaki to leave after one year

By Mike Huckabee

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki let it be known that she plans to quit that job after one year.

Naturally, the media rushed to defend her (it’s their kneejerk response) by pointing out this is nothing unusual: Trump also had four spokespeople in four years. Well, as the dad of one of those spokespeople, I have a little insight into that. Trust me, Jen is not doing the same job Sarah did, not by a longshot!

I know it can’t be easy to justify and deflect this Administration’s insane and destructive policies and her boss’s constant gaffes, but it’s sure a heck of a lot easier than representing Trump in front of them. Jen actually thinks she was being unfairly pressured when they dared even to ask her about the crisis at the border! And when they did, it was questions like, “Do you think all these people are coming here because President Biden is just so wonderful that he exudes welcoming rays of love?” With Sarah, they attacked everything she said, even suggesting she was lying about baking her own pies!

I’m surprised to hear that Jen Psaki is not staying any longer than the average Trump spokesperson for the same reason I’d be surprised to learn that chocolate tasters and mattress testers have the same rates of early retirement as lion tamers and bomb defusers.

Racism in the White House

By Mike Huckabee

Isn’t it terrible when there’s someone in the White House who’s an out-and-out racist?! Oh, and to be clear to the media: I’m talking about the current occupant, not the last one.

One of the biggest obstacles to Trump’s agenda was frivolous discrimination lawsuits that delayed him for years before mostly being thrown out. Biden may find one of his biggest problems is justified discrimination lawsuits that are upheld. One of the most open-and-shut cases has just been filed by a Wisconsin dairy farmer.

The recent $1.9 trillion “COVID relief” bill included billions in loan forgiveness for farmers, but only those who are “socially disadvantaged,” a Democrat euphemism for non-white. The plaintiff is a double amputee who’s lost both feet and has to get around with a cane to feed and milk 70 cows a day, but his skin is white, which makes him “privileged.” That makes him ineligible for the loan forgiveness program that any non-white, able-bodied farmer next door could obtain.

Problem: It’s a clear violation of federal anti-discrimination laws to base loan eligibility on skin color. Remember when Democrats used to rail about racist banks that didn’t give loans to people just because they lived in black neighborhoods? They called it “red-lining.” Now, they’re following the same racist template, only with our tax money. Let’s call it “white-lining.”

The farmer’s attorney, who is also representing four other farmers, called this “out and out racist,” and said, “I really don’t think that there should be racism allowed in the federal government at any level.” He said eligibility should be based on qualifications, not race, and “if it would’ve been against any other race, everybody would’ve been onboard and would’ve been complaining immediately.”

The law firm’s website notes that the Supreme Court has already ruled on so-called reverse racism, and their verdict was, to quote the Beatles: “You Can’t Do That!”

Speaking of farmers getting the shaft from Joe Biden, when he promised all that free stuff would be paid for by taxes on the super-rich, you probably didn’t picture people in overalls who grow your meat and vegetables. Well, start picturing it.

Biden claims that his proposed estate tax hike would include an exception for family farms taken over by heirs, although that’s very vague. But he also reportedly wants to eliminate a deduction called Section 1031. It allows farmers and ranchers to defer paying capital gains taxes when they sell land if they use the money to buy other land, which many have to do because they need fresh soil and to diversify crop growth. Without that tax break, the government would take the money they need to stay in business.

Someone needs to tell the Ivy League socialists writing Biden’s tax plans that if they want to keep their kale salads, they’d better find something else to tax besides America’s struggling farmers.

Salute to Tennessee

By Mike Huckabee

Salute to the Tennessee legislature for voting overwhelmingly (but still over Democrat objections) to ban racist "Critical Race Theory" teachings from the state's schools.

Big Tech Cancel Culture News Round-Up

By Mike Huckabee

That “independent” Facebook commission that decided the ban on former President Trump should continue turns out to be (prepare to be shocked) stacked with Trump haters. They include a former editor of the leftist Guardian newspaper, several law professors, a Yemini activist and a Pakistani digital rights advocate. Sounds about as ideologically diverse as the faculty at Brown University. Or the rest of the staff at Facebook.

Trump is bypassing Facebook and Twitter by posting comments on his own new website, Someone reportedly not on Trump’s team set up a Twitter account to post Trump’s comments, and Twitter promptly banned that, too. Then Twitter started suspending any accounts that post statements from Trump’s website. So if you actually bought their excuse that this was anything other than censorship for vindictive partisan reasons, welcome to the real world.

The Christian news outlet has been permanently banned from Facebook for allegedly questioning the safety of COVID-19 vaccines by quoting the government’s own Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System database.

The Canadian conservative news site, which already had its videos removed by YouTube, has now had its PayPal financial service cut off with no explanation, which could put them out of business. They were accused of violating PayPal’s Terms of Service, but they say they haven’t done that in any way, and PayPal is not responding to their attorney’s requests for an explanation. They’re asking for donations to help fund a lawsuit.

PayPal even cut off service for the site’s charity “For Canada” that does nothing but raise funds for things like helping the Red Cross after a major wildfire, and the editor's personal account that he hasn't even used in years.

At the link, their editor makes the alarming but accurate point that this banning of services and forums for people who don’t parrot the government’s leftist line is an echo of China’s “social credit system,” in which people who dare to criticize the government soon find themselves blocked from being able to rent an apartment, buy a cell phone, purchase an airline ticket or do just about anything else that involves leaving their bedroom.

Communist China should not be the model for American tech companies. The government needs to intervene now, but since Democrats are in charge, that won’t happen. So two other things must happen: (1.) Americans need to switch to competing services that respect free speech and freedom of conscience and abandon these too-big-for-their-britches sites. And (2.) voters need to make sure that after 2022, Democrats are no longer in charge of anything.

Two entities that have proven beyond all doubt that they can’t be trusted with power are the Beijing government and the Democratic Party.

Trump Approved

By Mike Huckabee

Former President Trump endorsed New York Rep. Elise Stefanik to replace Liz Cheney as head of the House Republican Conference. In response, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi insulted Stefanik with the kind of sexist innuendo that if a male Republican had said it about a female Democrat, the Twitter mob would be demanding he be fired, canceled and possibly become Harvey Weinstein’s cellmate.

    After watching the national nightly news I wondered how many stories every night are twisted. I saw much joy from the commentator over our not having to wear masks any more if we are fully vaccinated. This from the CDC? Only a few days ago weren't they saying even after being fully vaccinated we still needed to wear our masks? Now that they want a higher vaccination rate, suddenly the CDC changed their position. Oh, and the commentator also said that the US had almost 50% of the population vaccinated. I thought it was 33%. If Trump were still president they'd be reporting what a dismal rate that was. On another topic...why do we hear nothing about Cuomo and the eight women who accused him of sexual misconduct? Have they been paid to be silent or has the media just stopped reporting about it as they do so many other stories that don't fit their agenda? Thank heaven for you and your newsletter or we might all be believing what we see on the nightly news!

    Regarding the potential elimination of Section 1031, commonly known as the “1031 Exchange”: eliminating this does not just affect farmers and ranchers, but all property investors. Currently one can use a 1031 exchange to pull from retirement funds without penalty under certain conditions and for certain purposes. These purposes include rental/investment property swaps, buying investment properties and starting businesses. I am not an accountant or am I a tax advisor. I learned this through investors. Shutting this down will cause investment in property to decline dramatically. This will drag the economy down even further by disincentivizing investment. Please look into this and offer a better explanation in one of your newsletters. The affect to our economy will be crippling long term if Section 1031 is eliminated. Thank you!

    Governor, I have not been able to login to Parler in over a week. They posted an announcement that they would shut down for 24 hours to do some updating, but even now, a week later I still can’t get on their site. I have not seen any news about this anywhere. Do you know what is going on?

    Governor Huckabee, I gotta tell you, this IS a HUGE problem! First, this 'anti-Constitutional' reverse rascism simply 'grows' strife/division in our Country! Second it COST THE MIDDLE CLASS AND POOR 'DOUBLE/TRIPLE' IN 'COST' OF 'FOOD STUFF'! GEEZE!
    If these idiots predominantly calling themselves Democrats and 'illegally' in the White House actually BELIEVE what they are doing and saying then they are without a doubt just plain STUPID!
    Our fuel has doubled (we 'feel' it at the pumps, it's twice to almost three times the amount to mow the yards!) at the pumps, cost of simple foods is going up, people who are 'well able' to work are sitting at home with disgusting poor 'welfare' unemployment because it pays too much and in turn they will grow depressed, perhaps 'get into trouble' because they have nothing better to do!

    I'm of the opinion that all this chatter about Cheney, DeSantis and Trump are the usual crap that the Democratic controlled news propaganda machine uses to keep the clueless Republican party from getting down to business and weeding out the RINOs and misfits and getting some work done. The crying and hand ringing makes great story lines for the lazy loafers on the left.
    It's getting closer and closer to the 2022 election and they talk about the House and rarely mention the Senate.
    I am afraid the are going to hand them both to these socialists and then allow the fake media to tell them why they lost, they talked too much about Trump.

    Governor Huckabee,
    I appreciate your news letters and all the effort you and your staff put into everything you (they) do.
    I call it Blue-lining. But that is probably classified as racist since it mentions a color, even though it represents a political ideology.

    The party from the Left CCP/Dem. has a voting base that struggles with High School Students whose diplomas are nothing more than a participation document some of the base are drop outs that is a large portion of its base. To offer Government programs and assistance with currency, housing, keeps the base voting the same way decade after decade. The teachers unions see this and are writing this administrations orders. Keep the population without intelligence and the CCP/Dem party will flourish for a long time. Add the one parent household and children grow and become their parent and the cycle continues the party is not without intellect it just has evil intentions as major cities school systems remain nothing more than a building to house children for 7 hours.

    To be a democrat you have to be unable to tell the difference between a boy and a girl, worship abortion as if it is the holy grail, aid our enemies (Iran, etc.), hate this country, aid drug cartels, and corrupt everything you touch (FBI,CIA,SCHOOLS, CHURCHES, MILITARY, STATE GOVT's, etc). The way the Dems solve problems , for example the drug scourge afflicting the country, is to open the borders and roll out the welcome mat. Another, is to stem the Corona virus by placing infected seniors in nursing homes.

    Voter Integrity could start at the place we vote. I see people standing around who could be counting the votes by hand so at the end of the day the hand count should match the voting machine tally. Basic 101 addition! DO NOT TURN IN UNTIL BOTH MATCH!!

    I am from a farming community that did exactly that and in days gone by before the machines entered the picture, a hand count with both parties present did not turn in their count until they matched. Both parties were very proud of themselves for being able to do this.

    I am guessing that Liz Cheney does not like President Trump because of all of the negative things that President Trump said about her father. According to the Family Research Council, Liz Cheney has a much better conservative voting record than Elise Stefanik. Elise Stefanik has sided with the Democrats on policy way more often than Liz Cheney.
