Chalk One Up For The Good Guys

By Mike Huckabee

A California judge overruled state officials and ordered them to add Larry Elder’s name to the ballot in the list of challengers to Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom. Why are Democrats so afraid of black conservatives?

https://redstate.com/brandon_morse/2021/07/21/larry-elder-wins-court-battle-against-democrats-playing-dirty-to-keep-him-out-of-california-recall-election-n414266

Update On Masks For Children

By Mike Huckabee

Update: Yesterday, I linked to a story about a report in the journal JAMA Pediatrics that found that forcing children to wear facemasks for hours in school led to them inhaling dangerously high levels of carbon dioxide. I learned afterward that JAMA had pulled the study, citing numerous issues with its methodology, instruments and conclusions.

However, in a premium story at Epoch Times, the study’s lead author, clinical psychologist Dr. Harald Walach, took issue with the retraction.

https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_morningbrief/author-of-retracted-study-on-harm-of-mask-wearing-by-children-says-removal-was-political_3911445.html

Walach said JAMA failed to specify how he failed to provide sufficiently convincing evidence of his conclusions. He contends that the measurements are valid and were conducted by people with high levels of expertise, and he said the way to disprove research is to produce better and different results. He said he believes JAMA’s mention of “potential public health implications” suggests that the decision was based on politics, and the paper was retracted because some people didn’t like its data.

I’m not qualified to determine whether a particular medical study is valid or not, but it does seem odd that it was originally peer-reviewed and deemed solid enough to publish, then was retracted without being objectively disproven. The very suggestion that such decisions are being made based on politics is a large part of the reason why so many people have grown skeptical of our “expert” class, who insist they are unquestionably correct about something, then a month later, say the opposite and insist that that’s now unquestionably correct.

This is the slippery slope you go down when you start letting politics corrupt hard sciences, as it has been for a few years now. Another example is when medical organizations embrace transgender activism. It’s fine to declare that a man can become a woman by believing hard enough, if you’re a trans activist or an author of sci-fi novels or fairy tales. But please, don’t point to your medical degree and try to convince us that that’s a biological fact.

It’s like saying, “The Roman Colosseum is a Victorian house, and you must believe me because I’m an architect.” It doesn’t convince anyone that the Colosseum is a Victorian house. It just makes people assume you must be a really lousy architect.

In a related story, the CDC announced that a recent reported big spike in deaths following COVID vaccinations was a mistake. The number suddenly jumped from about 6,000 to over 12,000. A CDC spokeswoman said that someone doing an update on a passive reporting system they run with the FDA must’ve made a mistake, which was noticed after a few days, and they’re “working it out.”

https://justthenews.com/politics-policy/coronavirus/cdc-reports-mistake-caused-recent-false-spike-death-reports-after

Two points worth noting:

1. Deaths in the period after receiving the vaccine do not necessarily mean the vaccine caused the deaths.

2. Making dumb mistakes that big that you can’t even explain does not help inspire public confidence in the CDC.


Reporting The Truth About The Biden Administration

By Mike Huckabee

I kind of feel sorry for our poor media members, having to work so hard to report the truth about the Biden Administration. They’d no sooner finished burying the latest revelations from Hunter’s laptop about Joe being knee-deep in those business deals he claimed to know nothing about than this popped up and they had to rush for their shovels again:

https://www.westernjournal.com/hillary-2-0-biden-used-private-email-vp-send-government-intelligence-hunter-biden-report/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

JustTheNews.com reports (and stop me if this sounds familiar) that when he was Vice President, Joe Biden sent emails to his son Hunter from a private email account that included government information he’d received from the State Department.

Granted, it wasn’t quite as dangerous as some of the information that was compromised thanks to Hillary Clinton’s private email server, but it’s still the kind of thing that would be a major scandal if a Republican did it. Luckily for President Biden, we now have the Hillary precedent that says it’s okay to compromise government information on private email accounts, as long as you’re a prominent Democrat.

If you’d like to know the details, click the link. That’s probably the only place you’re ever likely to see them.


Part 3

By Mike Huckabee

Ben & Jerry’s leftist, anti-Israel virtue-signaling continues to backfire like Laurel & Hardy’s Model T. I already reported that their decision not to sell their ice cream in “occupied Palestinian territory” likely ran afoul of laws in both Israel and the US, and had sparked the removal of their products from stores in both nations. Now, here’s the latest ka-boom in their faces:

https://www.westernjournal.com/ben-jerrys-anti-israel-stunt-backfires-distributor-likely-forced-fire-palestinian-workers/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

The company’s distributor in the West Bank says that if they can’t sell ice cream there, it will take away such a large part of their business that they’ll have to fire 10 Palestinian workers who could never earn as much at any other job in the region.

So we might have a new candidate for Biggest Lie of All Time: “We’re Ben and Jerry, and we’re here to help you!”

The History Of Policing

By Mike Huckabee

The left rewrites history more than Hollywood rewrites movie scripts, and usually with the same putrid results. As tiring as it is to constantly have to correct it, I won’t let them get away with spreading these lies. So please jot this down for future reference:

“No, policing did NOT grow out of Southern slave patrols.”

https://www.westernjournal.com/debunking-another-liberal-lie-course-policing-didnt-begin-slavery/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

That link has a little history of policing, including the nugget that the first major police department in the US was established in Boston in 1838. It grew out of mercantile interests’ concerns about lawless urbanization, and their belief that a stable and orderly environment for business had to be maintained for the “collective good.”

What grew out of Southern slave patrols was Jim Crow laws and vigilante groups like the KKK. Guess who invented those? That’s some real history you’ll probably never learn in today’s schools.

News You Should Know

Nashville Tragedy

Monday was a tragic day in many regards. I hope you will join me in praying for the victims of the horrific shooting at the Covenant School in Nashville and their families, and for the unnamed staffer of Sen. Rand Paul who was brutally stabbed Saturday in Washington, DC. (More about that story below.)  The horror at the Christian school in Nashville began when a 28-year-old woman who was a former student there shot her way into the school, carrying two rifles and a pistol, and killed three children and three adults before police confronted and killed her. We’re still waiting for police to release more details, but early reports are that the shooter was a “trans” person, which made the police press conference incredibly confusing. With the police spokesman’s attempts to avoid being un-PC, getting actual details about the shooter was like pulling teeth, but it appears that it was a woman who “identifies” as a man. She (sorry if that’s “misgendering” a mass murderer, but I don’t care) reportedly left behind a “manifesto” and social media posts calling for rage and violence against opponents of “gender transitioning” of children.

DC Crime: Rand Paul Senate Staffer Stabbed

Sen. Rand Paul announced that an unnamed staffer of his had been brutally stabbed multiple times in broad daylight in Washington, DC, while leaving a restaurant. The injuries were reportedly life-threatening, but the staffer is currently hospitalized and Paul thanked the first responders and hospital staff. He asked everyone to join him and his wife in praying for a “speedy and complete recovery. Police have a suspect in custody who told them that “voices in his head” told him to do this. He was also reportedly released from prison just one day before, after serving 12 years for violent crimes. A reminder: The DC City Council recently tried to make it even easier for criminals to be let out and returned to the streets, but Congress blocked that move. President Biden planned to veto it, but he ultimately angered so-called “progressives” (actually, “pro-criminals” would be a more accurate term) by signing it. I don’t know if the assault on a female Democrat Congress member in a DC elevator changed his mind; but that and this latest attack show how dangerous our nation’s Capital has become under far-left rule, and that Democrat politicians can actually start thinking rationally when they have to face the daily dangers they impose on others.

The Left Is Winning

A new Wall Street Journal/NORC poll sadly confirms what many of us deduced just from reading the news lately: the left has been shockingly successful in destroying faith in long-standing American values among young people. Compared to a poll that asked the same questions 25 years ago, only 38% of Americans say that patriotism is “very important” to them, compared to 70% in 1998. Those who say religion is very important to them dropped from 62% to 39%. The percentage who said raising children is very important fell from 59% to 30%. And the number who place high importance on community involvement plummeted from 62% to 27%. Disturbingly, the only value that rose in high importance was “money,” up from 31% to 43%. When broken down demographically, it’s clear that the steepest erosion in the belief in traditional American values is among Democrats and young people. It’s yet more proof that the biggest mistake made by Republicans in the past half century was allowing the left to infiltrate and take over our schools.

The spiritual side of our lives really does matter

When I was growing up, my bedtime ritual always included a fairy tale that started with “Once upon a time...” and ended with the comforting words we all remember: “And they lived happily ever after.” As a child of the optimistic 1950s, I dreamed that life might be like that: whatever obstacles, dangers or perils might come my way, in the end, I would live happily ever after.

Why Art and Music Are Essential in Schools

Aside from letting leftist indoctrination take over our public school system, the biggest mistake we conservatives made in education over the years was in thinking that art and music classes were expendable luxuries and should be slashed to concentrate on “the three ‘R’s.” Not only are art and music classes important in themselves, but they are also beneficial to helping students excel in other subjects, including math and reading.

A blank book of pages

The first school in which we enroll, and the most important in shaping our future, is our home. A casual view of modern TV shows might lead us to believe that parents don’t matter. I contend that nothing matters more. When Benjamin West was a boy, his mother left him in charge of his younger sister, Sally. Benjamin found bottles of colored ink and painted Sally’s portrait.

How to prevent young people from falling prey to socialism

I got a comment from a reader arguing that one reason young people fall prey to socialism (aside from being brainwashed by their teachers) is that they feel the capitalist system is failing them. They were told they had to get college degrees if they wanted good jobs, and encouraged to take out huge student loans. Now, they’re saddled with crippling debt, and those degrees aren’t opening the doors to jobs that pay enough to ever get out of the hole.

Luckily for President Biden, we now have the Hillary precedent that says it’s okay to compromise government information on private email accounts, as long as you’re a prominent Democrat.

Part 3

By Mike Huckabee

Ben & Jerry’s leftist, anti-Israel virtue-signaling continues to backfire like Laurel & Hardy’s Model T. I already reported that their decision not to sell their ice cream in “occupied Palestinian territory” likely ran afoul of laws in both Israel and the US, and had sparked the removal of their products from stores in both nations. Now, here’s the latest ka-boom in their faces:

The company’s distributor in the West Bank says that if they can’t sell ice cream there, it will take away such a large part of their business that they’ll have to fire 10 Palestinian workers who could never earn as much at any other job in the region.

So we might have a new candidate for Biggest Lie of All Time: “We’re Ben and Jerry, and we’re here to help you!”

The History Of Policing

By Mike Huckabee

The left rewrites history more than Hollywood rewrites movie scripts, and usually with the same putrid results. As tiring as it is to constantly have to correct it, I won’t let them get away with spreading these lies. So please jot this down for future reference:

“No, policing did NOT grow out of Southern slave patrols.”

That link has a little history of policing, including the nugget that the first major police department in the US was established in Boston in 1838. It grew out of mercantile interests’ concerns about lawless urbanization, and their belief that a stable and orderly environment for business had to be maintained for the “collective good.”

What grew out of Southern slave patrols was Jim Crow laws and vigilante groups like the KKK. Guess who invented those? That’s some real history you’ll probably never learn in today’s schools.
