Joe Biden’s education secretary, Miguel Cardona, quoted President Reagan to suggest that government is there “to help.”

But he not only blew the quote, he obviously failed to have even the most basic understanding of Reagan’s meaning.

Cardona’s statement was, “I think it was President Reagan who said, ‘We’re from the government. We’re here to help.”

But Reagan actually said, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.”

Fox News sounded off with: “Social media users gave Education Secretary Miguel Cardona a failing grade on Monday after appearing to butcher one of President Ronald Reagan’s more famous quotes.”

Cardona’s blunder happened at the Western Governor’s Association meeting in Wyoming.

The report explained, “Many users on X mocked Cardona and pointed out the irony of an education secretary appearing not to understand a historical quote.

GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy gave Cardona a “failing grade.”

“Fire him & shut it down,” he said.

And school choice advocate Corey A. DeAngelis said, “You can’t be this stupid, @SecCardona.”

And a particularly stinging barb was documented by Fox as coming from Tommy Schultz, the CEO of American Federation for Children.

“Once you realize this is who is in charge of government education, our horrific literacy rates actually make total sense.”

And, the report noted, Tampa Bay editor Jim Stinson called for “universal private and home schools.”

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Shortly after Hamas terrorists fired over 5,000 rockets from Gaza into Israel on Oct. 7 and then proceeded to attack the Jewish state by land, sea and air – torturing, burning, beheading and murdering well over a thousand people, including women, children and infants, and wounding and abducting hundreds more – world reaction was, in its own way, almost equally shocking.

For after the biggest one-day mass slaughter of Jews since the Nazi Holocaust, what followed was an outpouring of celebratory demonstrations, unbridled Jew-hatred, deliriously gleeful support for Hamas and bitter condemnation of the nation of Israel. Not just in the Arab-Muslim world, but throughout the Western world as well, including all across America.

Why? What is behind the explosion of anti-Israel, anti-Jewish, pro-terror sentiment in the United States, where Israel has long been one of America’s closest friends and allies? Why are hordes of young “woke” LGBT demonstrators marching in support of Hamas – when Hamas wouldn’t think twice about binding and blindfolding them and throwing them off the roof of a tall building – as they routinely do in the Muslim world?

It turns out there’s one area of agreement that is so powerful, deep-seated and all-consuming that the vast differences between the deranged left and the murderous jihadists melt away into Kumbaya harmony.

All of this and much more is completely exposed in November’s issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled ISRAEL VS. GLOBAL JIHAD: How Jew-hatred, radical Islam and Leftism are pushing us toward World War III. Beyond a deeply insightful dive into why leftists are surging toward radical Islam – which hates and dreams of raping and butchering them – this Whistleblower issue includes fantastic articles by everyone from top Israeli analyst (and former Israel Defense Forces officer) Caroline Glick to Harvest Christian Fellowship’s Pastor Greg Laurie on the current war in Israel and biblical prophecies regarding the End Times … which he says are now upon us.

WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
