Oxford Study Casts Doubt On Covid-19 Origin Story

By Mike Huckabee

Casting further doubt on the natural, animal origin theory of COVID-19, a new Oxford University study found that there were no bats or pangolins sold at Wuhan wet markets between May 2017 and the first COVID cases in 2019. (FYI: the university already had this data from a study of a different disease, which I assume is why the Chinese government couldn’t prevent them from gathering it.) The authors say bats are rarely consumed in central China (most of the photos of them in markets are actually from Indonesia), and there is a pangolin trade, but not in Wuhan.

Interestingly, the study did find 38 species of animals were sold in Wuhan, either as pets or for human consumption, including badgers, raccoon dogs, hedgehogs, peacocks and reptiles, but no bats or pangolins. I’m hoping most of those were pets.

So bats and pangolins appear to be off the suspect list for starting the pandemic, which throws even more suspicion onto the rats in Beijing.


Why Were We Funding Bioweapons Research At Wuhan Lab?

By Mike Huckabee

And while we’re on the subject, here’s what they used to call “The $64,000 Question”: Why was the US Department of Defense funding bioweapons research at Wuhan?

Short answer: to develop tactics and vaccines for dealing with bioweapons, you first have to develop bioweapons. Grants for that research were given to a company that appears to have farmed it out to a lab in China.

Long answer: Well, read the entire article. It includes many details, including the names of some people and organizations you should know because you might be hearing them a lot more in the near future.

Vote By Mail In Vermont

By Mike Huckabee

Vermont’s Republican Gov. Phil Scott signed a Democrat bill into law that will have the state conducting general elections entirely by mail. It requires ballots to be mailed to every active vote on the rolls. Scott said he thinks it’s only a start and should be expanded to all elections, including primaries.

Proponents of mail-in voting claim it makes voting easier and safer. Opponents say it floods the state with unsecure ballots and kicks open the door to massive vote fraud. I side with the latter, but considering Vermont has already given America Bernie Sanders, the only open socialist in the Senate, it’s hard to imagine how widespread leftist voter fraud could possibly make Vermont’s choices worse.

Operation Trojan Shield

By Mike Huckabee

The FBI announced that an international sting called Operation Trojan Shield has accomplished one of the biggest busts of all time, taking down about 800 international criminals in 48 hours. It also resulted in the destruction of more than 50 drug labs, and the seizure of 250 guns, 55 luxury cars, $32 million worth of drugs and $48 million in various currencies. And it was all thanks to the crooks being more addicted to texting than a 14-year-old girl.

The feds realized that crooks rely on stripped-down devices with no phones or GPS so they can’t be traced, but they can access highly-encrypted text messaging services. So unbeknownst to the criminals, the FBI created such a service, called it ANOM, and touted it as the most secure ever created. Before long, it was being used by more than 300 criminal syndicates in 100 countries. After gathering more than 27 million messages' worth of evidence, 9,000 officers converged Monday on 700 locations in the US, Europe, Australia and New Zealand to make raids and arrests.

ANOM has been shut down, but as the story at the link notes, criminals will now have to worry whether the next communications service they join will have someone spying on their every word. Hey, join the club, pals!


Joe Biden, Moderate Centrist

By Mike Huckabee

President Biden’s behemoth $6 trillion budget plan includes $200 million to address the maternal mortality rate, but that section refers to mothers by the gender-neutral term, “birthing people.”

Earth to leftists: No matter how much you wish it to be true, or how furiously you attack people who refuse to submit to your weird fantasies, giving birth is NOT “gender neutral.”

Twitter And CNN Are Not Real Life

By Mike Huckabee

Still more proof that Twitter and CNN are not real life, so stop treating them as if they are:

A survey by the American Enterprise Institute’s Survey Center of American Life found that most Americans don’t cut off their friends over political disagreements. In fact, most don’t even talk about politics to their friends.

Only 21% say that they discuss politics at least a few times a week, while 55% talk politics less than a few times a month. That held true for both Democrats and Republicans. Both said party affiliation is not a prerequisite for being friends with someone; however, both are likely to have more friends who share the same party as they do.

Interestingly, 53% of Republicans say they have at least some friends who are Democrats, while only 32% of Democrats have friends who are Republicans. Only 15% of Americans have ever ended a friendship over political differences. But the further left you go, the more likely someone is to cut off a friend for having different political views. 28% of liberals have done that, compared to only 10% of conservatives. 33% of liberal women have done that. And the most intolerant of all are extreme liberals or “progressives.” 44% of these crusaders for tolerance have ended a friendship over political differences, making them exactly twice as intolerant as extreme conservatives (22%.)

This won’t come as a surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention recently to leftist media, social media or activists, all of whom live to gin up hatred and cancellation of anyone who disagrees with them by even a smidgeon. Someone needs to have a sincere talk with them about how they’re letting political extremism warp their priorities, narrow their minds and drive away their friends. Unfortunately, that would take someone who doesn’t agree with them on everything, and they no longer talk to anyone like that.
