Today's Commentary --- The Kavanaugh hearings and the case for mistaken identity -- President Reagan's Letter -- Huck PAC invests in conservatives -- What got into the water in Sacramento? -- Tim Allen returns -- Updates to the Kavanaugh story -- Evening Edition - Daily Verse


With no physical evidence or corroboration --- indeed, witnesses who contradict her story about their presence at a party at which she says she was assaulted --- Christine Blasey Ford’s case comes down to the truth of her recollections.  Not what she recalls, because she could be wrong, but the accuracy and specificity of those memories as they relate to Brett Kavanaugh.  Not “her” truth –- THE truth.  In the end, that is all that matters.  So let’s take a look at the science of memory.

Dr. Ford is a research psychologist and psychology professor, so it’s not surprising that she would have responded to questions about her memory in neuroscientific jargon.  When asked how she could be sure Kavanaugh was her attacker, this was her answer:  “Just basic memory functions.  And also, just the level of norepinephrine and epinephrine in the brain that sort of, you know, encodes –- that neurotransmitter encodes memories into the hippocampus.  And so the trauma-related experience is then sort of locked there.  Whereas other details kind of drift.”

President Reagan's Letter

By Mike Huckabee

After the intense ugliness of yesterday’s Senate hearing, I feel as if we could all use something good and clean to wash the filth out of our eyes.  So here’s an article to remind us of what Christianity and decency look like at the highest levels of government.  It involves a recently discovered letter, handwritten in 1982 by President Ronald Reagan and sent to his dying atheist father-in-law. 

Reagan was concerned about his soul, and tried to explain in a logical way his in-law could accept why he believed in the Divinity of Christ. Imagine someone in politics who not only had such lofty thoughts and knowledge, but also the decency to take time out from the highest-pressure job in the word to reach out and express them to someone he cared about who strongly disagreed with him.  Those were different times.  Let’s pray we can bring them back.

What got into the water in Sacramento?!?

By Mike Huckabee

I don’t know what got into the water in Sacramento, but California Gov. Jerry Brown actually vetoed a slew of wacky leftist bills that would likely be rubber-stamped if Gavin Newsom gets elected to follow him.  Brown blocked efforts by the La-La-Legislature to bar ICE from arresting criminal illegal immigrants inside courthouses, to let illegal immigrants serve on state and local governing boards, to make it harder for law-abiding citizens to obtain gun permits, to establish a board to monitor so-called “fake news” in obvious violation of the First Amendment, and even to move the start time of junior highs and high schools later to 8:30 a.m. to “combat sleep deprivation.” 

Judging from the type of bills that are passed by the people they elect, it’s obvious that Californians are already getting plenty of sleep during civics class.

Tim Allen returns

By Mike Huckabee

Tonight, Tim Allen’s sitcom “Last Man Standing” makes its return to Fox after being canceled at the height of its popularity by ABC; some say because it included a conservative point of view, although ABC denied that.  At the link, some more info and some refreshing comments from Allen about how it’s the job of entertainers to entertain, and who cares what they think about politics?  My prediction: far more people will tune in to see the new season of “LMS” than will buy Barbra Streisand’s new song attacking President Trump.



Updates to the Kavanaugh story

By Mike Huckabee

Here are a few late-breaking updates to the Kanaugh hearing story: 

It appears that Democrats on the Judiciary Committee weren’t the only ones on Capitol Hill who spent Thursday behaving like lawless, partisan juvenile delinquents.

Kavanaugh’s high school friend Mark Judge sent a letter to the Committee, saying he did not want to be forced to testify publicly because he is a recovering alcoholic and cancer survivor who’s struggling with anxiety and depression, and he had left town to escape the media hounding him.  But he declared under penalty of felony that he did not remember the events described by Dr. Ford and never saw Kavanaugh act in the way she described.

Also, the American Bar Association called for another last-minute delay in the vote, to allow for an FBI investigation of Ford’s claims “because of the ABA’s respect for the rule of law and due process under law.”  Critics pointed out that the ABA already gave Kavanaugh their highest rating as a judge and questioned whether this delay was politically-motivated, since the ABA is notoriously liberal, and Democrats are desperate to delay the vote until after the election.  They noted that Ford’s testimony provided no new details and that an organization of attorneys should know that the FBI can’t investigate a local crime, and certainly not one that’s 36 years old, where the accuser can’t even provide a date or location, and all the alleged witnesses deny that it happened.

    Your verse for the day, Colossians 4:2, is amazingly appropriate. We must pray and in prayer, give thanks. Thank you for all you do.
