Google's New, Radical Agenda
By Mike Huckabee
Conservative reporter Christopher Rufo, known for his hammering of Critical Race Theory, revealed that he’d obtained a trove of documents from whistleblowers inside Google, detailing how the tech giant forces employees to undergo an extensive “racial reeducation program” pushing such CRT hot buttons as “intersectionality,” “white privilege” and “systemic racism.”
Naturally, the program includes video conversations with such figures as “1619 Project” editor Nikole Hannah-Jones, who started the idea that all of American history is based on slavery, and “anti-racism” guru Ibram X. Kendi, who claims that even for children as young as three months, “To be raised in the United States, is to be raised to be racist, and to be raised to be racist is to be raised to almost be addicted to racist ideas.” Conveniently, to Kendi, denying that you’re a racist is just proof that you’re a racist: “For me, the heartbeat of racism is denial, and the sound of that denial is ‘I’m not racist.’”
(If I called people who believed this poison “idiots,” and they replied, “I’m not an idiot,” for me, guess what that means.)
Rufo says Google’s program also includes graphics that claim “colorblindness,” “[American] exceptionalism,” “Columbus Day,” “weaponized whiteness,” and “Make America Great Again” are all expressions of “covert white supremacy.” One titled “The White Supremacy Pyramid” claims conservative commentator Ben Shapiro represents a foundation of “white supremacy” and that Donald Trump is moving society on a path toward “mass murder” and “genocide.”
The link has a lot more details about the divisive, anti-American propaganda that Google is allegedly forcing on its employees, some of whom must be uncomfortable with it or they wouldn’t be leaking it to Rufo (sounds as if Google is creating a hostile work environment and making people feel uncomfortable about their race. Say, isn’t that illegal?)
Just as a reminder: DuckDuckGo.com is an excellent browser (they also have a free browser phone app) that doesn’t track you, spy on you or sell your private information like Google, and as far as I know, doesn’t force its employees to endure racist, Marxist brainwashing sessions. (I also like the fact that the welcome mat at their headquarters building reads, “Come Back With a Warrant.”)
But because one of the many wonderful things about America is freedom of choice, there are a rising number of options for other privacy-protecting browsers that you can use instead of Google. Naomi Brockwell is a producer for John Stossel who also makes tech advice videos. She recently posted one on YouTube about the best search engines to protect your privacy. Needless to say, NONE of them are Google. She includes DuckDuckGo and several others you can try, depending on your skills and level of concern about privacy.
Check out her channel for lots more videos on similar subjects, such as the best browsers for protecting your privacy. Instead of further enriching tech giants that exploit you while attacking everything you believe in, why not patronize start-ups that protect your privacy, and that actually love American concepts like open markets, free speech, honest elections and judging people on character instead of skin color?

Debt, Spending and Financial Obligations
By Mike Huckabee
Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen issued an ominous warning that unless Congress raises the debt ceiling (a process that normally takes a bit of time), sometime next month, “all available measures and cash on hand” will be fully exhausted and “the United States of America would be unable to meet its obligations for the first time in our history.”
Yellen warned that delaying could “cause serious harm to business and consumer confidence, raise short-term borrowing costs for taxpayers, and negatively impact the credit rating of the United States. A delay that calls into question the federal government’s ability to meet all its obligations would likely cause irreparable damage to the U.S. economy and global financial markets.”
To be honest, I’m not certain how seriously to take this. Those of us who’ve traveled around the Sun enough times remember many occasions when we were told the world would end if Congress didn’t raise the debt limit. Even when the deadline passed and there was a “government shutdown,” it was treated by the media as a catastrophe, but it never really shut down necessary services (and by the way, why are we going trillions into debt for so many unnecessary services?)
Congress usually reaches a “solution,” by which I don’t mean they do anything to get our financial house in order, they just kick the can down the road by raising their own debt limit (try doing that with your credit cards.) So while I agree with Yellen that this is a crisis, I can’t imagine our current Congressional “leaders” taking it seriously enough to do anything real about it. They seem to have adopted the attitude that consequence-free unlimited debt is now reality.
So it’s a toss-up as to which they’ll do first: vote to raise the debt ceiling again, or vote to spend another $3.5 trillion.
Texas: Securing Elections and Protecting Babies
By Mike Huckabee
Elsewhere today, we linked to a Fox News article about precisely what’s in the new Texas election integrity law that Democrats are howling about. But for those who have subscriptions to the Wall Street Journal, this is also worth a read.
The Journal editorial board talks about what’s in the law, but also explains why the hysterical attacks on it as “voter suppression” are ludicrous. For instance, while 24-hour voting is banned, since letting people drop off ballots at 3 a.m. makes fraud easier, in some cases, voting hours are actually expanded. 24-hour voting and drive-in voting are banned (except the latter is okay for disabled people), but they were only allowed for the first time last year due to the pandemic.
The editors also point out that in a previous case in Georgia, when the ACLU argued that expecting people to buy a stamp to mail in their ballots was an “unconstitutional poll tax,” the judges said that “bordered on the frivolous.” I’d say that like most leftists these days, it showed no respect for borders at all.
Just bear in mind that when everything Biden has touched, from the border to the economy, has turned into a blazing dumpster fire, and he’s just surrendered Afghanistan and $85 billion worth of weaponry to the Taliban on the eve of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, while leaving unknown numbers of Americans and allies behind in the process, it’s not surprising that the Democrats are desperate to distract the public with anything else.
I guess, “Look, Texas is securing elections and protecting babies’ lives! GET ‘EM!!” is the best they can come up with.
By Mike Huckabee
From the same leftist biological geniuses who gave us the terms “birthing person” and “chestfeeding,” comes a new one from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. In attacking Texas’ new law protecting babies with a fetal heartbeat from abortion, she claimed it was an attack on “menstruating persons.”
There was a lot of other baffling gibberish thrown in there, too, and I’ll let Sister Toldjah at Redstate.com try to unwind it all. AOC has gone so far down the rabbit hole of transgender doubletalk that she can’t even bring herself to say “women” for fear of offending non-female “women” so she’s reduced to spewing word salad like “menstruating persons.”
Oh, one bit of biological science that isn’t covered in the article: abortion laws affect pregnant women (sorry, “birthing persons”), and they aren’t menstruating.
"Not the right strategy"
By Mike Huckabee
It takes some people an incredibly long time, but after getting it completely wrong over and over, they are eventually capable of learning. As proof, I offer far-left Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler’s admission that - based on the outcry from the public and the media – allowing armed groups of protesters to battle in the streets and ordering the police to just stand by and do nothing was “not the right strategy.”
He added that “Portland is still trying to find the right recipe for handling riots.” Let’s hope this means he’s at least figured out that the recipe shouldn’t involve combining a bunch of explosive ingredients and then just walking away.
