Mark 11:25 KJV

Join me tonight for an entertaining and news-making new episode of “Huckabee” on TBN.

I’ll also talk to bestselling author Eric Metaxas about his latest book. Super country songwriter Bob Regan will tell us about a great new music project honoring fallen military heroes and Gold Star families. We’ll take a trip to Our Kind of Town, laugh at the news on “In Case You Missed It” and amaze you with magician Chris Funk. Then we’ll cap it all with the music of country star Craig Campbell.
We get rolling tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, and Sunday at 9 EST/8 CST, on TBN.

Jen Van Laar at Redstate.com reports that one of the highest-ranking defectors ever from China has been working for three months with the Defense Intelligence Agency. This defector reportedly has provided extensive, detailed knowledge of China’s special weapons programs, including bioweapons and the origin of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
US intelligence reportedly now believes that China is trying to produce variants of the virus to suggest that it came from bats to cover up the fact that it came from a lab. They still believe at this point that it escaped accidentally, but was allowed to spread.
Inside sources claim that information from the defector is what led to the sudden crisis of confidence in Dr. Anthony Fauci. Also, it’s reported that the defector was kept in the DIA’s Clandestine Services Network and knowledge of him/her was kept from the FBI, CIA, State Department and other agencies out of concern that there are Chinese spies or sources in those agencies (I’d say that’s a pretty safe bet.) Even FBI Director Christopher Wray was reportedly kept out of the loop and suddenly “ambushed” with the information.
Oh, come on: if you can’t trust Christopher Wray, who can you trust? That’s sarcastic, of course. It’s like saying you can trust the word of the Chinese government, and who’d be dumb enough to do that?
In a related story, Dr. Fauci says that the recent attacks on him are "very much an attack on science."
I agree that science has been under attack, but not from the people criticizing Dr. Fauci.
Look What Happens
By Mike Huckabee
Ashville, North Carolina’s liberal city council was under pressure from protesters to cut the police budget in half. Instead, they cut it by just 3% last September. And it’s already showing results: so far, 84 cops have left, and the police are so understaffed that they just released a list of crimes that they’ll no longer respond to. They include fraud, scams, identity theft, theft from a vehicle, simple assaults and most thefts of property worth under $1000.
I hope the citizens feel safer knowing that no cops are going to show up at their doors, even if they call them.
A Solid Majority Believe It Came From A Lab
By Mike Huckabee
Here’s what trying to hide things from the public does to public opinion. The latest YouGov poll finds that only 13% of Americans still believe the COVID-19 virus came naturally from bats. A solid majority of 58% (which includes even 43% of Democrats) believe it came from a lab in China, and 24% believe it was released on purpose.
So all those efforts by America’s “expert” and elite class to protect China’s reputation by silencing any questions about the virus’ origins didn’t work, but they sure cratered their own reputations.
A Texas Valedictorian Draws Praise From Liberal Celebrities and Politicians for Promoting Abortion
By Mike Huckabee
A graduating senior at Lake Highlands High School in Dallas is getting showered with praise from liberal celebrities and politicians, including Hillary Clinton, for using her valedictorian speech to promote abortion rights and denounce Texas’ “heartbeat” abortion limit law.
I could only imagine what their reaction would be if someone used a valedictorian speech to promote pro-life beliefs and denounce the atrocity of abortion. In fact, we don’t have to imagine. Officials at a Michigan high school tried to censor a girl’s valedictorian speech just because she referred to her Christian faith in it. She planned to say that her "future hope is found in my relationship with Christ. By trusting him and choosing to live a life dedicated to bringing His kingdom glory, I can be confident that I am living a life filled with purpose and meaning. My identity is found by what God says and who I want to become is laid out in Scripture.”
The principal reportedly told her, "These are your strong beliefs, but they are not appropriate for a speech in a school public setting." (Unlike promoting abortion, I suppose.) Fortunately, the principal backed down after receiving a letter from lawyers at the First Liberty Institute, demanding that the student be allowed to exercise her First Amendment rights. They said graduation speeches are private speech, not government speech subject to separation of church and state.
So, I wonder when this student will get her congratulatory tweets from Hillary and the rest, lauding her for standing up for her rights, not backing down and speaking truth to power? I won’t be holding my breath. One thing I’ve noticed about liberals is that they’re always ready to defend free speech, as long as you’re saying something they agree with.
For the record, I don’t think the first girl should have given a pro-abortion speech, but I also don’t think she should have given an anti-abortion speech either (the other girl’s speech wasn’t about public policy, it was about her personal religious beliefs that affect her plans for the future, which is an appropriate topic for a graduation speech.) The audience wasn’t there to have someone’s politics inflicted on them, they were there to see a graduation ceremony. Anyone who’s the valedictorian should be smart enough to know that.
