What We Stand For

Read More - What We Stand For

During President Biden’s disturbing and rambling press conference last Wednesday, he claimed that Republicans couldn’t even tell people what they stand for. Which is weird, considering I put out a daily newsletter that makes that pretty clear.

In fact, he could just look back to the policies that prevailed in 2019 – securing our borders, pro-economic growth, cutting onerous government regulations, encouraging energy independence, guarding freedom of speech and religion and other Constitutional rights, defending the sanctity of life, enforcing laws, projecting strength to the world instead of weakness, supporting the military, and making foreign policy decisions and trade deals that are in the best interests of Americans – and just say, “We stand for all that. You know, all the stuff you immediately started reversing on your first day in office.”

That seems clear enough, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also told Biden what the Party stands for, and more importantly, what it and the American people won’t stand for, and that’s trying to force a Bernie Sanders-style socialist agenda down the nation’s throat with a tie Senate and a tiny House majority.

Since its founding in 2008, Huck PAC has supported Republican candidates from State Houses to the White House, and in 2022 we will continue to do the same! Thank you as always for your support.

A tectonic shift is occurring in Virginia politics, and liberals who have been taking that great state down for years are screaming in outrage and panic as the ground moves beneath their feet. This month, three Republicans were inaugurated into the top statewide offices, and all three quickly signaled that they were serious about keeping their promises to voters.

Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears spoke out forcefully and persuasively against the politics of racial division. Attorney General Jason Miyares fired 30 AG staffers and said, “There’s a new sheriff in town,” and he would be prosecuting criminals that his far-left predecessors had let slide while they made Virginians less safe and less secure. And new Gov. Glenn Youngkin issued executive orders ending Critical Race Theory and mask mandates in public schools.

Some schools are trying to defy his mask order, and a group of parents filed a lawsuit. But Miyares has asked the state Supreme Court to dismiss it, arguing that the Governor has full power to make that order and citing a state law that says parents, not education system bureaucrats, have a “fundamental right to make decisions concerning the upbringing, education, and care of the parent’s child.”

It’s ironic that parents are suing to block the assertion of parental rights. If those parents want their kids to wear masks, and they believe they work and do more good than harm, then they can tell their kids to wear masks, and they will be “protected.” Other parents may decide otherwise, if they choose. If the plaintiffs are hostile to the concept of parental rights, then think of it as “respecting diversity.”

All this activity in Virginia inspired a must-read article by Kurt Schlichter at Townhall.com on how first Trump and now Youngkin are showing Republicans how to win.

Here’s how you don’t win: by promising conservative principles, then turning liberal the minute you’re in office and worrying about what Twitter or the Washington Post might say about you. You also don’t win by protecting only your donors or the country club elite set. You do it by listening to what the people care about, promising action on those issues, and once you’re elected, actually keeping your promises, no matter how much leftists howl about it. They denounce this as "populism," as if paying attention to the concerns of the people was reprehensible.

I covered a lot of the same territory in my book “God, Guns, Grits and Gravy,” about how out-of-touch with most Americans our media and political elites were. That was published before Trump ever came down that escalator and got into politics, but the people it was warning didn’t listen. Now, with leftist policies exposed as the crushing failures they are, there are more and more Republicans winning office by actually listening to the people.

The left may have managed to defeat Trump, but very few people trust their media propaganda outlets anymore, and they can’t throw a pandemic or a Deep State frame-up at every rising Republican.

Huck PAC endorsed Glenn Youngkin for Governor in 2021 and contributed $50,000 to his campaign.  In 2022, you can expect Huck PAC to continue to financially support Virginia Republicans and their efforts to expand upon this victory.

Read More - 2022: Right Track or Wrong Track?

Here’s why I suspect the Democrats are panicking that the public isn’t joining in their overblown January 6th hysteria. Without it, here’s what they’re facing in this election year:

https://reason.com/2022/01/06/americans-arent-buying-bidens-agenda/

According to a new poll by The Economist and YouGov, only 23% of Americans think the country is headed in the right direction, while 62% think it’s going in the wrong direction. The most optimistic group are black Americans; still, only 38% think we’re on the right track. That’s compared to 22% of Hispanics, 33% of white male college graduates and 22% of white female college grads. Among white non-college grads, only 17% think we’re headed in the right direction. And 90% of Trump voters think we’re headed in the wrong direction (who are the other 10%?!)

In addition, even 96% of Biden voters think jobs and the economy are very or somewhat important issues (they rank them third after climate change and health care.) But only 22% of Americans think the current state of the economy is good or excellent. Forty percent say it’s “poor.”

The article at Reason.com says this poll shows that President Biden should adopt a New Year’s resolution to completely change his policies, and fast. Sadly, I doubt that will happen. I expect the left to double down on stupid as they sense their brief window of ultimate power will soon be slipping out of their fingers. For Biden to heed this advice, someone in the White House would have to read a site named after Reason. I just don’t see that.

Read More - Hispanic voters are

Democratic strategists are reacting with shock to recent polls showing that a rising number of Hispanics are turning their backs on the party and leaning Republican. This completely shatters their long-held belief that demography is destiny and all they have to do is wait for the US to become a majority-minority nation and they’ll be cemented into power forever. That’s because they believe that if you are black or Hispanic, your vote belongs to them for some reason. It’s why the only arrow left in their quiver is to claim that no matter how much better minorities had it under Trump, “you can’t vote for Republicans because they’re RAAAACISTS!”

Well, it turns out minorities aren’t so dumb as Democrat leaders seem to think they are. They’re starting to see through that scam. And while the Dems are shocked, it’s no surprise to me. I’ve been pointing out for years that as the national Democratic Party moved further and further left, becoming ever more hostile to basic American values like religious freedom, free speech, hard work, capitalism, strong families and respect for life, they were also moving away from blacks and Hispanics who value those things. In fact, those groups are now more likely than whites to be faithful Christians and churchgoers.

Byron York reports on a new Wall Street Journal poll that shows Hispanics are abandoning the Democrats in droves as they’re repelled by its “progressive,” anti-American radicalism.

https://townhall.com/columnists/byronyork/2021/12/29/democrats-lose-hispanic-voters--lots-of-them-n2601159

Many Hispanics hail from nations that were plagued by communism and socialism, and they came here because they longed for the American Dream that “progressives” sneer at. The WSJ poll found that a majority of Hispanics said they’d rather be citizens of the USA than any other nation on Earth, and they’re proud of how American democracy works by a 35% margin. They are 80% working class and don’t support reparations or defunding the police. And while they voted for Biden by more than 25% in 2020, if that election were rerun today, it would be a virtual tie.

A Dallas Morning News poll also punctured the Dems’ dreams of taking Texas, showing that Biden’s approval rating among Hispanic Texans is a dismal 35%, with his disapproval at 54%. They especially disapprove of his handling of the border, which, ironically, I believe was really intended to boost the Hispanic vote for Democrats.

I also know from previous polls and personal acquaintances that Hispanics care about jobs and the economy, and having followed the rules to become US citizens, many strongly oppose open borders and amnesty for illegal immigrants who undercut their wages. Many are also devout Catholics, which (news flash to the White House) means they don’t support unfettered abortion. I know many black Americans also harbor similar belief systems.

Republicans have the policies that really work for all Americans. Having now proven that in back-to-back-to-back laboratory tests over the last three Administrations, they just need to become more effective at making their case to minority voters, and pointing out the absurdity of a party thinking it has ownership rights to the votes of blacks and Hispanics because they’re the only ones who aren’t racists.

Bob Dole & Huck PAC

December 6, 2021

Read More - Bob Dole & Huck PAC

Our prayers and sympathy to former Sen. Elizabeth Dole and the rest of the family of former Senator and Presidential candidate Bob Dole, who died in his sleep Sunday at 98. He had announced earlier this year that he was being treated for stage 4 lung cancer.

It was a miracle that he survived World War II, having served heroically in battle in Italy, where he was severely injured by enemy gunfire and lost the use of his right arm. His devotion to his fellow veterans became a lifelong mission, and as chairman of the World War II Memorial Commission, he helped raise nearly $200 million to build the WWII memorial on the National Mall.

Dole’s former colleagues and all the living ex-Presidents praised Dole as a statesman, patriot and war hero. President Biden recalled him as a friend with whom he often disagreed politically, but who never hesitated to work with Democrats on bipartisan areas of agreement (of course, that was back when there were a lot more of those.) Biden also announced that flags would fly at half-staff in memory of Dole, who, as his death announcement stated, “served the United States of America faithfully for 79 years.”

On a personal level, I simply loved Bob Dole. When I was a fledgling candidate for the US Senate in 1992, few people thought I had a chance to defeat long-time incumbent Dale Bumpers in my very first political outing. Turned out they were right, but one person who came to Arkansas to campaign for me was Senator Bob Dole. He did events with me in NW Arkansas and in Little Rock. His presence warranted much needed news coverage and credibility for me. I was with him in the car when an elderly gentleman came rushing to the vehicle to hand the Senator a large envelope and say, “Senator, I have some ideas on reducing the deficit I’d like to give you.” I was seated in the back seat with Senator Dole, and his aide seated in the front turned and said, “Senator, want me to take that for you?” It was a kind way of saying, “Sir, I’ll take that and dispose of it for you.” The Senator said, “No son, I’ll hold on to it and give it a look. That gentleman may have better ideas than we do. Lord knows we aren’t doing much to reduce the deficit and he might have something worth considering.” It wasn’t that this legendary Senator needed the contents of that envelope. But in his words and actions, Bob Dole showed a rare quality for politicians who sometimes become removed from rubbing shoulders with anonymous citizens. He showed that man RESPECT. I never forgot it. And it also taught me the value of helping candidates when they need the help the most—in the early days of what might be an unlikely victory for their campaigns.

When I launched HuckPAC, I purposed to help elect pro-life conservatives to public office at all levels. But while we help incumbents who usually will have adequate funding, we have gotten in early for good candidates who we clearly realize may not win the race, but who might be better prepared to win their NEXT race. There are people in Congress, the Senate, Governor offices and all kinds of public offices from school board to state legislature who received the endorsement and financial support of HuckPAC. They can thank Bob Dole for teaching me that lesson.

When Senator Dole ran for President in 1996, he asked me to serve on his national steering committee. Without hesitation, I gladly and eagerly said “yes,” and campaigned with him and for him across America. The more time I spent with him, the more I loved him, respected him, and learned from him.

Bob Dole is a real hero. For all he did in World War II to give us our freedom, to his lifetime of thoughtful service to our nation in public service. He is irreplaceable. But I pray he’s never forgotten. He certainly won’t be by me. Rest in peace, Senator Dole. You’ve earned it!
