BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY
Another example of double-standard “justice”
By Mike Huckabee
As if to rub in Americans’ noses in the idea that we have a two-tiered justice system, District Court Judge James Boasberg ignored special council John Durham’s request for six months in prison for former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, letting him off with just 12 months of probation and 400 hours’ community service.
As part of the “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation/coup attempt against President Trump, Clinesmith pleaded guilty to altering an email from a CIA colleague. He made it appear that Trump campaign aide Carter Page had not been a CIA source (he was) so that a FISA court judge would grant a warrant to surveille Page.
The judge said Clinesmith’s actions “undermined the integrity of the FISA process,” but he believed Clinesmith was remorseful and didn’t alter the email to harm Page. No, he just violated his duty to his office to mislead a secret court into granting a bogus warrant to surveille and possibly frame an innocent American citizen in an attempt to overthrow a duly-elected President. Certainly nothing sinister about that! No harm done.
Whether it’s due to cluelessness or just pushing a chosen narrative, the left and its media and corporate consorts keep claiming that Trump riled up Americans to turn against the system that they represent. No, Trump was merely a symptom. They turned to him because they were already fed up, and Trump was the only one willing to fight for them.
They were fed up because they were sick of the blatant double standards, where leftists who loot, burn, riot, assault police and destroy federal monuments and buildings are called heroes of democracy and released immediately, while law-abiding Americans who try to defend themselves from them are prosecuted…where they’re told not to judge all peaceful protesters by the actions of a handful of violent leftists, but all conservatives are condemned and judged guilty for the actions of a handful of violent right-wingers…where working Americans can be arrested or fined into bankruptcy just for leaving their homes, seeing their families or trying to make a living if it violates unconstitutional COVID lockdown rules that the politicians who impose them openly flaunt…where their jobs can be destroyed by fatuous elites who tell them that’s the price they have to pay to cut carbon emissions, as they pocket their fat government checks and go flying off to eco-conferences on their private jets…where leftist violence is called free speech, but conservative free speech is branded as violence…where a “Democratic” socialist Congress member accuses a Republican Senator of inciting crazies to murder her because he wanted election irregularities investigated, while ignoring her Republican colleague who nearly was murdered by a lunatic incited by the radical, dehumanizing rhetoric of the “Democratic” socialist Senator she most admires…where a security wall on the border to keep out criminals, drug gangs and illegal immigrants is branded pointless and racist, but security walls around the elites' mansions, enclaves and work places are a necessary security measure…where leftists can threaten conservatives' lives on Twitter while conservatives get banned for saying anything critical of the left…where wealthy, well-connected brokers can treat the stock market like a casino, but small investors who follow the same rules are shut down and threatened with investigations…
And now, we have yet another example of double-standard “justice” to point to, where a government agent sworn to uphold the law is allowed to falsify evidence to mislead a FISA court to get a warrant to spy on and possibly frame an innocent citizen and yet gets off Scot-free. I’d ask what would happen if any Republican tried anything a fraction that bad, but we already know.
This very week, someone who allegedly “misled” Democrat voters by sharing Twitter memes about voting by text back in 2016 was arrested on federal charges. He’s facing up to 10 years in prison.
Did anyone even ask whether he was remorseful and didn’t mean to hurt anybody?
Minneapolis doubles down on stupid
By Mike Huckabee
Since the George Floyd protests/riots, Minneapolis’ leftist city council has stripped $8 million from the city’s police budget. Since then, crime in the city has skyrocketed with reported rapes up 22%, reported robberies up 59% and gunshot wounds up 225%.
What to do?! Well, the leftist geniuses on the city council have the answer: abolish the police department entirely.
They want to put a measure on next November’s ballot, asking voters to replace the police department with a nontraditional “public safety office,” that will deal with crime in ways “more reflective of our values” (I have to assume their chief value is masochism.)
Even the Democrat mayor criticized the plan for diluting accountability by having the head of public safety report to 14 different people. I hope their combined IQ’s at least reach triple digits, unlike the city council's.
If it’s true that a conservative is a liberal who got mugged, then by next November, about 90% of the city's population should be conservatives several times over. I hope they’ll use this election not only to defeat this idiotic plan but to set the council members who came up with it onto a more appropriate career path, maybe in the fast food or sanitation industries.
Get Woke, Go Broke
By Mike Huckabee
Never forget, the left may hold the megaphone, but you hold the purse strings. After Bed Bath & Beyond announced that it would no longer carry MyPillow products following attacks on CEO Mike Lindell for expressing pro-Trump political beliefs and suspicions about the 2020 election, conservatives organized boycotts, a petition drive and protests at stores. Thursday, the company’s stock took its biggest one-day fall ever: 36.4%.
Some protesters at a BB&B store in Larspur, California, left a message for CEO Mark Tritton that should be required reading for all CEOs thinking of betraying 75 million Trump voters to cater to a handful of leftist Twitter trolls whom I can't imagine care about buying clean sheets:
“Stop promoting 'cancel.’ You buckled to pressure, removing MyPillow products...because of Mike Lindell's politics. It's un-American...Our country was founded on the principle of free speech and open debate. These days, censorship and suppression are far too common, and you’re now part of the problem. You have that right, of course, but realize you’re antagonizing half of your customers. And Mark…we’ve had enough. We’re tired of corporate big-shots looking down on our beliefs. Reverse this decision now and get out of politics, or we’re done with you forever."
And then, do you know what they did? Did they scream threats, loot the store, set the building on fire? No. They left peacefully after leaving the checkers a $20 tip, because they hated to have to inconvenience them just because their boss is a bad businessman who drives away customers.
See, now THAT is how real Trump supporters hold a protest rally.
Pipe Bomb Update
By Mike Huckabee
The FBI announced Friday that pipe bombs found at the DC Republican and Democratic headquarters had been planted there the night before President Trump made the rally speech that Democrats are claiming incited the rioters who allegedly planted the bombs.
Do you know what this means? The rioters must have a time machine! They heard Trump’s speech and were so incited, they went back to the night before and planted those bombs!
Sorry, I started thinking like a CNN reporter there for a minute. I’m better now…
