DAILY BIBLE VERSE
10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
Narrative Shattered, Burned, Ashes Scattered
By Mike Huckabee
Friday morning, Reuters released an investigative report into the violence in the Capitol on January 6th, and it obliterates all the tearful tall tales from the left about the giant Trump-led conspiracy to overthrow the government. It was more like the story of the dog that chased cars and didn’t know what to do with one when he caught it.
According to officials quoted in the Reuters report, the FBI “at this point believes the violence was not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of then-President Donald Trump." It has also “so far found no evidence that [Trump] or people directly around him were involved in organizing the violence.” Up to 95% of the cases are “one-offs” (i.e., someone saw the door open and wandered in.) Maybe five percent involved organized groups like Oath Keepers or Proud Boys who allegedly had planned to break in, but “they found no evidence that the groups had serious plans about what to do if they made it inside.”
This is why most of the charges have been things like “conspiracy” instead of really serious counts like racketeering or insurrection: because there’s no evidence of any broader plot than that they talked in advance about their plans to trespass.
It kind of throws a monkey wrench into all the Democrat histrionics about it being the biggest threat to the federal government since the Civil War. Say what you will about the over-matched and out-gunned Confederates, but at least they didn’t show up at Gettysburg unarmed, wearing T-shirts and Viking helmets and shooting nothing but selfies.

One of the stupidest and most futile political stunts of all time, the Texas House Democrats who ran away to DC to block passage of an election integrity law and spread COVID, has ended the way anyone with a brain always knew it would: enough of them have given up and gone home that there’s now a quorum to pass the bill in the heavily GOP legislature.
On the bright side, if they intended to spread COVID, they did accomplish that.
And in a somewhat related story: after hearing for months that Georgia’s new election integrity law was “Jim Crow on steroids” and would suppress the minority vote, new data shows that 95% of eligible voters over 18 are now registered, giving Georgia one of the highest voter registration rates of any state.
And for those crediting the high registration rate to Stacey Abrams, sorry: it’s actually mostly due to the automatic DMV voter registration system that Georgia’s had since 2016.
Billions Of Dollars Worth Of Weapons Fell Into The Hands Of The Taliban
By Mike Huckabee
Not only did the Biden Administration allow the nation and the people of Afghanistan to fall under the brutal reign of the Taliban, they also allowed billions of dollars’ worth of US military technology to fall into their hands. We’re now starting to get a rough estimate of just how bad the damage is.
Thanks to our incompetent leaders, US taxpayers have just provided the Taliban and their terrorist allies with countless advanced weapons, including M-16 rifles and M-4 carbines, intelligence-gathering equipment, night-vision devices that will be a real “game-changer” to help them attack us and our allies in the dark, more than 2,000 armored vehicles and as many as 40 aircraft. These include U.S. Black Hawk helicopters and A-29 Super Tucano attack aircraft.
The Administration is considering launching air strikes to destroy the equipment before the Taliban can use it. But they haven’t decided yet, out of concern that it might provoke the Taliban to attack Americans. However, the Taliban now knows they’re considering bombing the equipment, which will give them more time to move it. So once again, brilliant strategery, guys.
Outraged Republican Senators are demanding a full accounting of the equipment loss from the Defense Department. The only bright side is that without maintenance and support, our enemies probably won’t be able to fly our aircraft for long (as the Afghan forces learned, thanks to Biden), but all the other weapons and technology could be a serious and long-lasting threat to America and the world. Just add that to the “Biden legacy.”
But does the Biden State Department have a shocking plan to recoup some of that lost tax money? When asked if a Politico story was true that Americans trapped in Afghanistan are being charged $2,000 each, and Afghan refugees even more, if they want to get on a plane and escape Taliban rule, the State Department responded with a mouthful of bureaucratic double-talk.
This should be a simple “yes or no” question. And if the answer is “yes,” then it should be “NO!” Are even the simplest questions with the most obvious answers beyond these people?
What Do Other Nations Think Of Our Afghanistan Pullout?
By Mike Huckabee
Say, remember how we were told we had to replace Trump with Biden so that other nations would love and respect us? Here’s how that’s going:
Our British allies, outraged at not being told that Biden had unilaterally decided on his disastrous Afghan pullout, leaving British citizens in the middle of the crisis, are talking about forming stronger bonds with other nations such as Japan because they can no longer count on the US. British paratroopers are also bravely leaving the Kabul airport to try to rescue British citizens, while the US dithers about saving Americans and Afghan allies.
To top it off, on Wednesday, Britain’s Parliament condemned Biden’s withdrawal debacle as “catastrophic” and “shameful,” not just a mistake but an avoidable mistake, and officially voted to hold Biden in contempt.
But hey: no mean tweets! Apparently, that’s all that matters to some people.
Pelosi Tries An End Run
By Mike Huckabee
With the Democrats’ attempt to federalize and legalize vote fraud stalled for the moment, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying an end-run with a new bill that would do pretty much the same thing. Like the misleadingly named “For The People Act” that would actually make it impossible for the people to trust the results of elections ever again, this bill has a similarly benign title: the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, or H.R. 4.
Pelosi is trying to sell it in typical fashion by heaping on piles of incendiary false accusations about basic election integrity laws being a racist conspiracy to deny minorities the right to vote (in fact, even under the new laws, it is easier for any LEGAL voter to vote – LEGALLY – than ever before, with greater access to ballots, more places to vote and longer early voting periods. They only suppress vote fraud, which I strongly suspect is her real beef with them.)
H.R. 4 attempts to pull off the neat trick of reinstating parts of the Civil Rights Act of 1965 that the Supreme Court has already struck down as unconstitutional. So I guess she’s taking a cue from President Biden in acting as if Supreme Court rulings were merely suggestions.
Pelosi’s overheated rhetoric against basic election integrity laws that are approved by large majorities of Americans, including blacks, is so cartoonishly over-the-top, it suggests panic and desperation. But then, if my party had done as much damage to America and the world in only seven months as hers had, I guess I’d be panicking over the next election, too. Especially if it's an honest election.
What CNN Thinks
By Mike Huckabee
How badly has President Biden failed in his handling of Afghanistan? This should give you an idea:
Reporter Clarissa Ward is in Kabul. She describes it as an “absolute mess” and the Administration's handling of the aftermath as “horrible” and “unacceptable,” and said, “Biden no longer gets credit simply for not being Donald Trump.” As for his claim that the pullout wasn’t a failure, she snapped, “If this isn’t failure, what does failure look like exactly?”
Oh, and in case you didn’t know, Clarissa Ward is the chief international correspondent for CNN! Yes, that’s what CNN is saying about Biden now!
