Today's Commentary --- Rachel Mitchell's report on Dr. Ford's case: so weak -- FBI: stop investigating high school yearbooks and start declassifying Uranium One -- Google bias -- A giant-sized Huck's Hero salute -- Julie Swetnick -- Signs We’ve Reached Peak Media Hysteria: -- Evening Edition - Daily Verse


Those of us who watched Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony last Thursday (um, that would be all of us) were frustrated to no end by the dispassionate, methodical and seemingly confined manner of questioning used by Rachel Mitchell, who heads the Special Victims Division of the Maricopa County attorney’s office.  But while her questioning set off no fireworks in the room, she did come up with some conclusions that validate many of our conclusions.

In a memo to Senate Republicans on Sunday, she wrote, “A ‘he said, she said’ case is incredibly difficult to prove.  But this case is even weaker than that.”

She offered nine points to support her conclusion.  We’ve already discussed most of them here.  But I’d like to call attention to the last two on her list.

FBI: stop investigating high school yearbooks and start declassifying Uranium One

By Mike Huckabee

The FBI has been in the news a lot lately, mostly over the activities it will and will not be performing in an additional, week-long background check on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.  (That’s Background Check #7 for those keeping track.)  Not that there is corroboration for any of the allegations against him, but thanks to Sen. Jeff Flake, we’ve had to extend this national nightmare until the alarm clock goes off on Friday to wake us up.  Senate Democrats are going to keep trying to hit the snooze alarm, but that can’t be allowed to happen.  This bad dream needs to be over, and Kavanaugh needs to be seated on the Court.  Sen. Lindsay Graham is right --- this outright destruction of the confirmation process by Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee is the worst threat to our system of government that we’ve ever witnessed.

 Most everyone has expressed confidence in the FBI’s ability to do a good, time-efficient background check that’s untainted by political motivation, since most of the “bad apples” at the top are gone now and the vast majority of agents are assumed to be above-board.  But it’s hard to say; the FBI is a long way from fully redeeming itself in the eyes of those who now have good reason to distrust it.  The Bureau may do a very professional, unbiased job of checking out the decades-old claims against Kavanaugh, but it should be noted that the same old problems are occurring when it comes to obtaining FBI documents through the Freedom Of Information Act.  I refer specifically to one case that hasn’t been in the news much lately –- which is understandable at a time when our constitutional protections of presumed innocence and due process face existential threat –- but that mustn’t be forgotten:  Uranium One.



Google bias

By Mike Huckabee

Sure, Google, we believe you when you claim that your search results aren’t biased.  But it would be a lot easier if your internal communications revealing your staff's stunningly one-sided lockstep leftism would quit leaking out to the public. 

The latest example: Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn tried to be nice to Google in a very reasonable op-ed opposing government regulation of Google as a public utility and urging Google executives to engage in more “reflection” about how to make sure their search engine fosters a fair and competitive free market of ideas. 

A leaked email chain shows that key Google employees reacted to that by accusing Blackburn of making “theatrical demands” and calling her “a violent thug” and a “lying liar who lies” (is Google hiring 12-year-olds?)  One senior Google software engineer sniped, “I’m not big on negotiation with terrorists.”

Enjoy becoming a public utility, Google.


A giant-sized Huck's Hero salute

By Mike Huckabee

A giant-sized Huck’s Hero salute to former Army Staff Sgt. Ronald Shurer II, America’s newest recipient of our highest military award, the Medal of Honor.  It was presented by President Trump at the White House on Monday. 

The Alaska-born Shurer was an Army medic serving  in Afghanistan when militants attacked his team with machine guns, sniper rifles and rocket-propelled grenades.  From the linked story:

“Shurer stabilized one soldier, then fought his way through a barrage of bullets and up a mountain to the lead members of the unit. There, he treated and stabilized four more soldiers. Shurer helped evacuate them, carrying and lowering the wounded down the steep mountainside, using his body to shield them from enemy fire and shrapnel.  After he loaded the wounded in an evacuation helicopter, Shurer went back up the mountain to fight.”

He fought on with his team for over six hours, and as Trump noted, thanks to Shurer, not a single American died in that brutal battle.  

Now, click the link to discover another amazing part of this story: what happened the first time Shurer tried to join the Army.

Julie Swetnick

By Mike Huckabee

Julie Swetnick, the woman brought forward by porn star lawyer Michael Avenetti, hasn’t gotten much serious coverage for her claim that she attended 10 parties where a high school-aged Brett Kavanaugh took part in drugging and gang-raping teenage girls – understandably so, since she can’t explain why nobody else seems to remember that.  But she finally got her first network TV interview.  Even NBC had a hard time swallowing her story, noting that she backed away from her previous statements.  For instance, instead of claiming Kavanaugh spiked the drinks, she now recalls seeing him hanging around the punch bowl.  Well, if a teenage boy is standing near the punch bowl at a party, what else could he possibly be doing but laying the groundwork for a string of gang-rapes?

Meanwhile, Fox News’ Laura Ingraham scored the first interview with Swetnick’s former boyfriend, who says she exaggerated everything; she’s not credible; she threatened the life of him, his wife and his unborn child; and during their seven-year relationship, they talked intimately about everything, but she never once mentioned being gang-raped at a party.  He said, “Nobody knows Julie Swetnick better than me” and “I really don’t believe her.”


Signs We’ve Reached Peak Media Hysteria:

By Mike Huckabee

The “paper of record,” the New York Times, actually ran a breaking news story, reporting that a guy claims that Brett Kavanaugh once threw some ice at him in a bar after a rock concert in 1985. 

Was it crushed ice or cubes?  Because if it was cubes, Democrats might be able to claim it was assault with a deadly weapon.
