Blessings on you and your family from all the Huckabee team! Today, if you have a moment, leave me a comment about something you read. Comments help me fine tune what I am writing, and they show that we have an active community of readers.

This is the first of two newsletter parts from me today.

Daily Bible Verse

One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

Ephesians 4:5-6

Harvard prez resigns

Following even more accusations of plagiarism, not to mention students passing on acceptance to Harvard for schools with better reputations like Florida State, Claudine Gay announced that she will resign as president of Harvard University. Naturally, she blamed racism, which she blames for everything. That skill seemed to be her only qualification for getting hired as president of Harvard in the first place.

A reminder: She was one of three college presidents who were blasted for their refusal to condemn anti-Semitism during House testimony. The other two were white, there were calls for all of them to resign, and the first one to go was the white president of UPenn, who quit weeks ago. That leaves only the president of MIT, who is white and also facing strong calls to resign. Racism in 2023 is very confusing.

Food For Thought:

Michael Walsh offers a series of “self-evident” truths for 2024, some of which will set leftists’ heads ablaze.

I particularly like these three:

“Most sane people already have a religion and do not need tyrannical Leftism as a substitute for lack of faith.”

“The more they talk about ‘our democracy,’ the faster they mean to get to mob rule, whose end result is always dictatorship.”

“The major American universities are hotbeds of fraudulence. They should be dissolved, their teaching ranks purged, their administrators blacklisted, their tuition refunded and their endowments confiscated to pay off student loans.”

Polio returns

Democrats always claim that it’s Republicans who want to “turn back the clock.” So why is it that Democrat policies are threatening to bring back polio…

And introducing other long-eradicated, Third World-style diseases into the 21st century US?

Let’s hope this is a good omen for more similar stories to come in 2024:

A federal appeals court just threw out a conviction by the Biden DOJ of former Republican Rep. Jeff Fortenberry for lying to the FBI (FYI: apparently, it’s not illegal when they lie to us.) The judge wrote:

“Fortenberry’s trial took place in a state where no charged crime was committed, and before a jury drawn from the vicinage of the federal agencies that investigated the defendant. The Constitution does not permit this. Fortenberry’s convictions are reversed so that he may be retried, if at all, in a proper venue.”

So they destroyed a Republican’s career and reputation by unconstitutionally charging him with a process crime in front of a rigged jury of biased DC liberals? Why, that doesn’t sound like the Biden DOJ that Merrick Garland is always describing. More details at the link, including the interesting tidbit that the three judges deciding this were appointed by Obama and Biden.

“Thanks, Gavin!”

In February, a new California law takes effect mandating a raise in the minimum wage for fast food workers to $20 an hour. And it’s already showing results: Pizza Hut announced that it’s laying off 1200 delivery drivers because they can’t afford to pay that much.

This is expected to be just the first in a wave of layoffs of drivers from other chains, not to mention a major incentive for replacing in-store workers with robots and automated ordering kiosks. As one conservative commentator noted, it’s a reminder that the real minimum wage is zero. It’s also a reminder of what Ronald Reagan famously said: “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are ‘I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.”

Some good news for the new year:

You’ll finally be getting a pay raise to catch up to all the inflation caused by federal spending.

Oops, sorry, my bad:

That only applies if you’re a federal government employee. The rest of you will just have to work harder to pay for food, energy and the higher taxes you’ll need to pay to cover the raises for all those federal employees.

Brace yourself

Unlike most media outlets, we have a policy of not commenting on stories that haven’t happened yet. But just so you’ll be braced against the potential shock, there’s a report going around that when documents related to the late billionaire sex criminal Jeffrey Epstein are released this week, the “John Doe 36” who’s mentioned over 50 times will be revealed to be Bill Clinton.

I know: Shocking, right?

Message to Red State Governors: Get Ready

Now that 2024 is here, a number of new laws passed in the last year will be taking effect, and that means that red states should brace themselves for an even bigger onslaught of refugees fleeing blue states.

Like Illinois, where porn is being mandated in schools and public libraries…

…California, where court rulings upholding the Second Amendment apparently mean nothing…

And a number of states where various pro- and con- laws will be taking effect on the chemical and surgical mutilation of children in the name of the “trans” movement.

Of course, being in a red state doesn’t necessarily mean your kids are safe from that. As that last linked story details, a new law in Iowa to ban sexually-explicit gender propaganda from elementary schools was blocked by a federal judge (apparently, gay porn in third grade is now a constitutional right), as was an Idaho law banning irreversible, experimental “gender” procedures on minors.

Disappointingly, citizens in Ohio didn’t even need a federal judge to swoop in and stop them from protecting children, since Republican Gov. Mike DeWine did that himself. He vetoed a bill that would have banned transgender treatments and procedures on minors and banned males from competing in girls’ school sports.

DeWine attempted to put a conservative justification on it, saying, “Ohio would be saying that the state, that the government, knows better what is medically best for a child than the two people who love that child the most, the parents.” But that doesn’t apply here. Not even parents are allowed to expose their children to dangerous quackery. There are all sorts of laws protecting children from bad decisions by parents, even allowing states to take away custody.

I think you can tell how the Governor has been misled by trans radicals and medical activists by the fact that he called this butchery by their garbage term, “gender-affirming care.” Actual gender-affirming care would mean giving confused prepubescent kids the counseling they need to help them accept their natural genders, not convincing them God made a mistake and put them in the wrong bodies, but with enough chemicals and surgery, Dr. Frankenstein can fix that for them.

There’s an effort underway to override that veto, and more power to it. Meanwhile, here's more on that subject from Bonchie at

Surprise, Surprise!

Andrea Campbell, the Democratic Attorney General of Massachusetts, has decided that the Democratic Mayor of Boston violated no racial discrimination laws in holding an official city party that excluded white officials.

Here’s law professor Jonathan Turley on Campbell’s unique interpretation of anti-discrimination laws, that it’s okay for officials to racially discriminate as long as the public isn’t invited.

Campbell, who is black, may be interested to know that her reasoning was also part of the notorious Supreme Court decision, Plessy v. Ferguson, which ruled that “separate but equal” accommodations for the races are constitutional because “some people simply find the ‘commingling’ of races to be ‘unsatisfactory.’”

“Duh” Headline of the Day:

“Yale Junior Says Grade Inflation a Good Thing.”
