DAILY BIBLE VERSE
By Mike Huckabee
When the president of the National School Board Association sent a letter to President Biden, urging him to use federal law enforcement to deal with the “imminent threat” of parents showing up at school board meetings to protest their kids being forced into draconian COVID restrictions and indoctrinated with pornographic sexual content and racist “Critical Race Theory,” many Americans rightly reacted with fury and dismay. Public school bureaucrats have no divine right to decide how they will treat other people’s children or what they’ll teach them, especially if it’s controversial leftist propaganda that parents don’t want polluting their children’s minds.
In fact, in Virginia, Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe’s campaign took a big stumble when he sided with these educrats in a debate, declaring, “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” Problem: that right is actually codified into state law, which he should know, having been Governor before (State code section 1-240.1: “A parent has a fundamental right to make decisions concerning the upbringing, education, and care of the parent’s child.”) Even Democrat ex-Gov. Doug Wilder slapped him down, saying, “If parents don’t have a say-so in terms of their kids’ education, then who does?”
We all know the left’s answer to that question: they believe the government owns your kids, the same way it owns every penny you earn but is generous enough to let you keep a few of them.
Anyway, do you know who didn’t give that outrageous letter the quick trip to the circular file that it deserved? Attorney General Merrick Garland, who announced that the FBI and the Biden “Justice” Department will begin holding meetings with federal, state and local law enforcement to discuss ways to combat this “disturbing trend” of parents refusing to let their children be brainwashed with leftist garbage. He didn’t exactly put it that way, of course, but I cut to the chase.
Garland said in a statement, "Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values. Those who dedicate their time and energy to ensuring that our children receive a proper education in a safe environment deserve to be able to do their work without fear for their safety."
That’s funny, I thought the term “public servant” meant they serve the public, not the other way around. Also, America’s greatest core value is freedom of speech.
To be clear: it’s important to remain civil even when you’re justifiably angry. Nobody should express their anger at school boards with threats and intimidation. FYI to AG Garland: that also applies to BLM and Antifa protesters. But it’s reasonable to assume that with this massive effort to start “policing” and monitoring parental speech, the goal is not to prevent real threats and violence but to intimidate parents into being afraid to speak up at public meetings. It’s the same method that’s been used to intimidate Trump supporters into being afraid of expressing their honest opinions on social media. They know “Big Brother is watching you.”
So keep showing up at public meetings to express your opposition, but do it civilly. And most importantly, show up to all local elections and VOTE THESE BUMS OUT. The left has figured out that the way to destroy America is from the bottom up. So they show up for local elections, where voters have gotten complacent and assume it doesn't matter whether they vote or not. This is how you get city councils that defund the police and Soros-funded district attorneys who release criminals the prosecute people who defend themselves from criminals, and yes, school boards that push anti-Americanism, critical race theory and radical sexual politics. If you want to get rid of them, show up at the meetings, but better yet, show up at your local election polls.
Meanwhile, with every new action taken by Merrick Garland, we see what a debt of gratitude America owes to Sen. Mitch McConnell for blocking Obama from putting him onto the Supreme Court. Far from the moderate, centrist jurist he was touted as being, he’s proving daily that he has no qualms about treating the Bill of Rights like toilet paper and abusing his powers to impose the will of the authoritarian left. I am counting the minutes until 2024, when a new Republican President has him escorted from the DOJ, hopefully never to hold any position of public trust again.
Typical, arrogant, leftwing Democrats
By Mike Huckabee
This story about Terry McAuliffe's Virginia gubernatorial campaign, which is also linked above, illustrates yet another outrageous but typical attitude of today’s arrogant leftwing Democrats.
After a group called the Hampton Roads Black Caucus endorsed Republican Glenn Youngkin for Governor, McAuliffe’s campaign mocked it as meaningless because they’re a black Republican group, since they once endorsed a Republican mayoral candidate.
Actually, they’re something that terrifies today’s Democrats more than anything on Earth: a bipartisan group of black independent thinkers. They endorsed the Democrat in the last two gubernatorial elections, one of whom was…wait for it…Terry McAuliffe! Guess they've learned from that experience.
McAuliffe’s attitude reflects one of the ugliest aspects of today’s Democratic racial politics, expressed so eloquently by Joe Biden, who famously said, “If you don’t vote for me, you ain’t black.” Their belief in “diversity” is literally skin-deep: if you’re black, they think you owe them your vote, no matter how terrible their governance is for your life (see Chicago, Baltimore, etc. etc.) They seem to think they own all black people, a belief that I thought Republican President Abe Lincoln disabused them of a long time ago.
Biden blames President Trump for this...
By Mike Huckabee
This is one of those “Are you really that stupid or do you just think I am?” arguments. President Biden tried to blame the need to raise the federal debt limit on (you guessed it) President Trump and his “reckless tax and spending policies” that Biden claims added $8 trillion to the debt in four years.
Reality check: under the eight years of Obama/Biden, the debt doubled from $10 trillion to $20 trillion, and that was without a pandemic to deal with. They also had the first trillion-dollar deficits in history. Under Trump, the economy boomed, unemployment plummeted to record lows and there were no trillion-dollar deficits for three years. Then, China (yes, I said it) unleashed a pandemic, and the government had to spend trillions of dollars to keep the shut-down economy afloat. Democrats not only supported that spending, many complained it wasn’t nearly enough.
And now Biden actually wants us to believe that it’s Trump’s fault that we have to raise the debt limit, even as he’s pressuring Congress to pass nearly $5 trillion in additional spending.
So for the record, no, I’m not stupid enough to believe that it’s Trump’s fault we have to raise the debt limit. Are you, Mr. President? Really?
Although maybe he does believe that most Americans are stupid enough to believe that...

Not content with harassing and filming Sen. Kyrsten Sinema in a woman’s restroom (and word is that authorities in Arizona are investigating that obvious violation of the law, so let’s hope we see some arrests quickly), an uncivil rights activist harassed Sen. Sinema on a plane as she was flying back to DC to push her to vote for Biden's $3.6 trillion spending bill.
Even more outrageous, President Biden (who seems to have no qualms with violating women’s privacy in bathrooms) was asked to condemn this abhorrent behavior and seemed to brush it off as “part of the process.”
Can you imagine how Democrats would squeal like stuck pigs if some Trump supporter followed AOC into a women’s restroom and harassed her to vote against a spending bill? It would be “insurrection” and an “assault on our democracy!”
I guess leftists believe that all Democrats must vote for whatever they want, with no regard for the idea that Sens. Sinema and Manchin don't represent AOC, they represent their constituents in Arizona and West Virginia. These arrogant activists think their repulsive “process” of harassment and intimidation is justified and that it works, but I hope it backfires bigly on them. At the very least, I hope they stiffen Sen. Sinema’s resolve not to cave in to these disgusting tactics. At best, she should switch parties and take away their Senate majority. As I noted before, Republicans believe women should be allowed privacy in women’s restrooms.
Biden’s cavalier response to these unconscionable, barbaric tactics is just more proof that to today’s Democrats, if you disagree with them, that’s an "assault on democracy.” If they invade your privacy, terrorize your family, and harass and physically attack you, that’s “the democratic process.”
