“Fauci Ouchie!”

By Mike Huckabee

Wednesday’s news gave new meaning to the term, “Fauci Ouchie!” The Washington Post and Buzzfeed obtained via the Freedom of Information Act thousands of emails from Dr. Anthony Fauci about the COVID-19 coronavirus, and they shattered the godlike aura the media have built up around Fauci like a hammer going through a plate glass window.

There’s so much in the more than 3,000 emails that I can’t detail it all here, but here are a few major stunners:

* Credible scientists told Fauci early on that the virus appeared bio-engineered and likely came from a lab, and he took actions to squelch that story. Many suspect it would have been embarrassing or far worse for him if the public knew of his role in promoting “gain of function” research to make viruses more transmittable to humans, something he allegedly lied about under oath…

* He knew that masks weren’t needed if you weren’t sick, and the masks people were buying were ineffective because the virus is so small it passes right through them. Some studies even showed that masks could make transmission worse. Yet Fauci kept pushing them, even to the point of suggesting wearing two at once (here’s some more on that)…

https://behindtheblack.com/behind-the-black/points-of-information/from-masks-to-the-origins-of-covid-anthony-fauci-is-a-liar-and-a-fraud/

* Physicist Erik Nielsen sent him recommendations of two drugs that could help, one being Hydroxychloroquine. Yet when Trump said that and was attacked by the media as if he just made it up, Fauci did nothing to defend him…

* Fauci was in regular contact with billionaires Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, the latter about setting up a Facebook “information hub” to squelch “disinformation.” We now know that includes things like the possible Chinese lab origins of the virus that were not disinformation but that were simply inconvenient to the officially approved narrative.

Stephen Green at PJ Media quotes a commentator who points out that Zuckerberg was emailing Fauci about messaging ideas while giving $400 million to an organization that got out the vote in key Democrat battleground districts and deplatforming people who complained about it. Green writes, “You don’t have to be paranoid to see an information-controlling/data-hoovering social media giant working in cahoots with the public health bureaucracy to both shape a narrative and to unseat a sitting president.”

For a more detailed overview, the Legal Insurrection blog did a good job of laying out excerpts from the most important emails, explaining what’s in them, and providing samples of reactions.

https://legalinsurrection.com/2021/06/fauciemails-reveal-a-career-bureaucrat-who-followed-political-rather-than-medical-science/

Townhall.com columnist and attorney Marina Medvin tweeted, “Fauci has singlehandedly transformed medical science into political science. This level of medical deceit to effectuate political control is unprecedented in American history.”

And Ben Shapiro called Fauci the "(Chief Justice) John Roberts of public health: a guy trying to protect an institution without regard to the purpose of the institution itself.”

Tucker Carlson at Fox News tore into this story as vindication of his long time criticism of Dr. Fauci.

https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/tucker-carlson-is-dr-fauci-under-criminal-investigation

Sen. Rand Paul, who endured death threats from the Fauci cult for questioning his claims and accusing him of perjury, tweeted the most succinct reply to the torrent of email revelations:

“Told you.”

https://www.westernjournal.com/rand-paul-responds-eye-opening-fauci-emails-told/

I’m sure it pained WaPo and Buzzfeed to have to report this, because it means the people they denigrated, dismissed and censored for being purveyors of disinformation and debunked conspiracy theories are now looking correct on practically all counts. WaPo is trying to finesse its crawlback by not admitting that they’d been wrong in condemning skeptics of China’s government as crackpots and bigots (as one commentator pointed out, why is it anti-Chinese bigotry to suspect the communist government made the virus in a lab, but not anti-Chinese bigotry to assume it came from Chinese people eating bats?)

In correcting their 2020 story on Sen. Tom Cotton’s questioning of the origins of the virus, WaPo adds this disclaimer: “The term ‘debunked’ and the Post’s use of ‘conspiracy theory’ have been removed because, then as now, there was no determination about the origins of the virus.”

Nice attempt at distancing yourself from your own mistake. But if, by their own admission, they knew “then” that there was “no determination about the origins of the virus,” why did they call Cotton’s questioning of it a “conspiracy theory” that had been “debunked?” They work at a newspaper; you’d think they’d understand that words mean things. I suspect it’s because liberals have gotten so into the habit of declaring things “debunked” without going to the effort of actually debunking them that they never imagined the truth would catch up to them and they’d have to take one back. Well, in this case it has.

I wonder how many other cases we’ll eventually see of people who were branded by the media as “lying liars who lie” turning out to have been telling the truth all along?


#FireFauci

By Mike Huckabee

In his two-word (“Told you”) response to the email revelations about Dr. Fauci, Sen. Rand Paul added the hashtag #FireFauci, and he might get his wish. Even the Biden White House must sense that Fauci has suddenly become a liability. One anonymous White House official told Human Events Senior Editor Jack Posobiec that they are actively discussing an “exit strategy” for him. Stephen Green of PJ Media called that a headline that should have been from April, 2020.

https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/matt-margolis/2021/06/02/report-white-house-actively-discussing-an-exit-strategy-for-dr-fauci-n1451556

And in a turn of events that reminds me of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s self-congratulatory book about how well he handled the pandemic, a pre-sale web page for an upcoming book by Dr. Fauci suddenly disappeared from Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The publisher, National Geographic Books (which was also planning a documentary about Fauci) claims that the announcement was simply “premature.” No kidding!

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/leahbarkoukis/2021/06/03/faucis-book-listing-n2590402

The book is (was?) to be titled “Expect the Unexpected.” Well, at least you can’t accuse him of lying about that.

Spin Control

By Mike Huckabee

The media are doing their best to downplay and ignore the bombshell Fauci email story. Here’s MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace gushing over Dr. Fauci.

https://redstate.com/nick-arama/2021/06/03/fauci-in-full-spin-control-as-he-gives-first-interview-after-email-release-n390536

And astoundingly, the White House Press Corps didn’t ask Biden spokeswoman Jen Psaki a single question about the biggest story of the day.

https://thefederalist.com/2021/06/02/white-house-press-corps-doesnt-ask-psaki-any-questions-about-faucis-emails/

I refer, of course, to Biden’s love of ice cream. I have to assume that’s what they think is the big story, since they spent so much time on it the day before.


Election news: Dominion pursues MyPillow; Zuckerberg paid for control

By Mike Huckabee

As we reported in February, Dominion Voting Systems is suing Mike Lindell and MyPillow for $1.3 billion for defamation. Now, in a new filing, Dominion is focused on going after the company itself –- deeper pockets, of course –- by arguing that MyPillow is liable for Mike Lindell’s allegations about them.

I’m not a lawyer, but it seems to me that Lindell was speaking very much as an individual when he made allegations about the lack of security surrounding the Dominion voting machines. He’s definitely a man on a mission, and I’m not talking about the mission of selling pillows, sheets and mattress toppers. Yet Dominion is arguing that this is really just about selling lots of bedding –- that Lindell has been waging a “defamatory marketing campaign” in his capacity as “the MyPillow guy.” They say he’s “integrating bogus election fraud claims with an extensive marketing campaign for the pillow company.” They couldn't be more wrong.

They point to his online store, in which he uses promo codes such as “FightForTrump.” My thought is that if Lindell is appealing to his right-wing clientele, it’s because he’s had to say goodbye to just about all of his other clientele over the election issue. I would assume that conservative Trump-supporters are pretty much all he’s got left.

“The law is clear that corporations can be held liable for the defamatory statements their employees make within the scope of their employment and furtherance of the company’s business,” their attorneys wrote. They argued that a jury could infer that Lindell was acting as the company’s agent and “exploited lies about Dominion to market MyPillow products.”

Lindell, however, had already claimed to have lost tens of millions of dollars in retail partnerships. Recall that major retailers such as Bed, Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s discontinued his products. MyPillow has also said in its own defense that Lindell sincerely believed his claims.

Lindell had asked the judge in the case, U.S. District Judge Carl John Richards, to dismiss Dominion’s lawsuit against him. But with this latest filing, Dominion is now asking him to move their suit forward.

What has bothered me about Dominion, and still does, is that they insist they have “publicly available facts and evidence” disproving the claims against them, and that the statements against Dominion have been “rebutted by the evidence,” while refusing to turn such evidence over to auditors. For example, they continue to withhold the administrative passwords for the machines used in Maricopa County, Arizona, to those who are currently conducting the audit there. My understanding is that these passwords would enable auditors to thoroughly investigate whether or not the machines are hackable and might have contributed to a rigged election. Dominion is trying to have it both ways: deny the charges but withhold their evidence.

It’s challenging to find stories in the news about Lindell and his claims that don’t dismiss them out of hand and call them false and “debunked.” To date, no one has debunked them. If you read this story in BUSINESS INSIDER, keep in mind that there’s some editorializing, such as the statement that “Lindell has continued to levy falsehoods against Dominion in interviews and rallies.” The accuracy of Lindell’s claims is yet to be determined. So, who’s defaming whom?

In other election fraud news, RealClearInvestigations has a detailed expose about how Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan paid $350 million to a progressive group called the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), which, in turn, distributed those millions to cities and towns across America and worked with election officials to conduct their elections just so. We’ve previously reported on the use of this money to pay for unsupervised ballot dropboxes in locations chosen by CTCL, but this article reveals other ways in which they were involved. It’s long, but worth your time.

https://www.realclearinvestigations.com/articles/2021/05/26/how_zuckerberg_millions_paid_for_progressives_to_work_with_2020_vote_officials_nationwide_778300.html

According to the story by Stephen Miller, “In exchange for the money, elections divisions agreed to conduct their elections according to conditions set out by the CTCL, which is led by members of the New Organizing Institute, a training center for progressive groups and Democratic campaigns.”

A partner with CTCL, the Center for Civic Design, actually helped design absentee ballot forms and instructions, crafted voter registration letters for felons, and tested automatic voter registration systems. In Michigan, they worked alongside “progressive activist groups.” In Georgia (yes, Georgia) and Utah, they worked directly with elections offices.

This type of funding has apparently never been done before. Does anyone see a problem here?

It gets worse. Even Facebook got into the act, producing a webinar and guide to help election officials engage voters, specifically targeting low-income people and minorities, “helping Democratic candidates win key spots all over the U.S.”

According to court documents filed by the conservative law firm the Thomas More Society, the CTCL allowed election officials in Green Bay, Wisconsin, to use the grant money to buy vehicles to transport “voter navigators,” who were used to “assist” voters at their front doors, answering questions and witnessing ballot signatures. They also “cured” absentee ballots that lacked signatures, addresses, etc.

In Georgia, agents from CTCL trained poll workers. I can’t help wondering if they trained the small team of ballot tabulators who stayed behind in the State Farm Arena in Fulton County late on Election Night after other workers, including the poll watchers, had been dismissed over a bogus water leak. Hadn’t their “training” included the fact that they weren’t supposed to count votes without supervision?

The infuriating examples go on and on. Erick Kaardal, a lawyer with the Thomas More Society, says, “It was a pay-to-play scheme, where in exchange for taking this money, the CTCL gets to tell them how to run the election. And it’ll happen again in 2022.”

This use of private funds to control how elections are run has got to be stopped –- now. State legislatures will have to pass laws to stop it, because in the absence of such laws, some judges are enabling it to continue. For example, in Texas of all places, U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant III, an Obama appointee, ruled in favor of this kind of funding, and apparently his stance is typical. He said, “Ultimately, plaintiffs complain that people with different political views will lawfully exercise their right to vote. That is not a harm. That is democracy.”

Wrong. The practice he ruled in favor of is HARMING DEMOCRACY.


A Reader Writes Back... 

Again, thank you for keeping us informed relative to the condition of the world around us. But everytime I read your posts I am filled with dread & anger. NOTHING is changing except for the worse. I feel like we are sitting around waiting for someone somewhere to do something. Is the conservative citizens of this country asleep??? Better yet, ARE THE REPUBLICAN POLITICIANS ASLEEP??? It appears to me there are only a handful of politicians (Gov DeSantis, Rand Paul, Kristi Noem, etc) who are actually out there passing legislation/laws to take back this country & protect us. Where are the rest of our so called “warriors” who were elected to prevent the landslide corruption that is a daily symptom of our government??? And please explain to me why there has been no push to hold Biden accountable for the now evident criminal collusion with Hunter??? It appears to me that our representatives are cowards!

    God forgive me. I know Jesus said render to Caesar that which is Caesar's and to God that which is God's and turn the other cheek and all that. But I believe we have a war, a Crusade if you will, that must be done, violently and with bloodshed if need be. The Democratic-Communist party has succeeded in creating a cult by most if not all definitions. Based on that alone, they are unconstitutional. President Trump remains the Commander In Chief in my heart and that of patriotic Americans whoever has made an oath to uphold The Constitution. Generals and Admirals must pledge allegiance and do what must be done.

    biden is more comfortable playing with dolls and a doll house than confronting the bullies like Xi and Putin. China murdered millions of people with the virus and the US has some funding to the wuhan lab that needs answers and are not being questioned. The east coast had a energy shut down and putin is laughing at biden while he is kicking sand in biden the coward's face then China shuts down a food source in America and now its time for biden to take some time off for a vacation maybe Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon can come visit and talk in their bath house how to spin all the disruption Russia and China are causing our country. biden is a Farce and a nothing more than a ignorant coward.

    What people left & right, democrats & Republicans don’t understand is socialism communism will eat them alive as well. It does not just infect, hurt, destroy one side. It is CANCEROUS and will eat the small, flag waving Defund police, BLM godless intolerant intimidating bullies who use violence as well. You’re not special UNDER ??& his secular materialistic irreligious minions. Look at N.Korea,China,Russia for example. You’re SPECIAL in the sight of God. He sent His only begotten son to die for your sin& mine, undeserved, by Grace! Turn from “man”, his perverted, sick left wing socialist communist agendas& turn back, seek His face, humble yourself,admit your sin, turn from them that He might heal our land!????. God is about fresh starts, a new beginning.

    I HATE being right about Masks, Lockdowns, etc. It cost American Lives BECAUSE they wore masks that were not effective and were NOT schooled to KEEP your Hands in your pockets not fiddling with your DIAPER. Think of the diseases that were Created by Masks? Stacking people in Nursing homes, told to NOT go outside( Vitamin D anyone?) then add in POOR Air Exchange in elevators and small cubicles? I could go on as I have covered all this before. The BIGGEST mistake was shutting down the best economy I have witnessed in my 83 years and the media's Omission of Any Deaths EXCEPT COVID? This became a story BECAUSE of the MEDIA and Lousy INVESTIGATIVE Journalism. Will Americans LEARN? or will they allow Big Tech. and the MSM to continue to just be Progressive, aka Socialist mouthpieces?

    Hello Governor! In response "your reader writes back" on June 3rd please advise all of your readers that although Governors Abbott, Noem, and DeSantis are valiant in standing up to the federal government, "depending on any government official" to solve the problem of "government corruption" is ludicrous! WE THE PEOPLE have that responsibility. Don't wait for the "authorities" that you elected to do that.....Do it Yourself, at the city council meetings, in school board meetings, and especially at the state legislator's sessions. Good grief, who is the "real coward" here? Fill Your Boots Man!

    Thank you for standing up for democracy. I pray daily for our great country and the great leaders, such as you and President Trump and may others, who take a stand against the dishonesty in our current government and the evil (best word to describe this party) democrats. I am devastated to hear that Prime Minister Netanyahu will likely lose the election as I am an ardent admirer of this great defender of Israel. I enjoy reading your newsletter and support your wise, Christian opinions.

    Regarding voting integrity -
    Have there been any conservative recommendations for voting rights bill updates
    (aside from defeating the corrupting HR1/S1)?

    My two cents worth:
    Q: At least every even #’d year is a federal election year; are not all those elections subject to federal regulations ?
    Q: Aren't all odd #’d years open to possible federal replacement elections (retirees, deaths, RECALL, etc.) ?

    Therefore, for election integrity:
    1. All voter registration/change activity and voter ID requirements should be under federal regulation standards (county, city, DMV, etc. registration sites and polling place or absentee ballot [thumb print?] ID certification) - and,

    2. All elections - ballots by any medium, both absentee requested, or on-site at the polling places and city/county election headquarters, nation-wide, including its voting territories, should be subject to identical federal regulations and,

    3. All processes (including counting/ auditing), procedures, transportation and applicable equipment should be standardized and certified in compliance with all hardware and software safeguard requirements and,

    4. All worker tasks, training and certification procedures and enforcement/ disciplinary procedures and standards should be federally standardized and,

    5. Any polling place, city or county facility or personnel not fully in compliance should be subject the entire jurisdiction to ballot "hold" action for investigation, and then appropriate penal and corrective action, at the applicable site level(s) and,

    6. All regulations should be reviewed/ updated by the Congress, and always under legal review/ approval by the SCOTUS before final passage.

    My wife was a polling place inspector for 38 years; a lot of these requirements have been in place for many years, yet obviously not enforced in many locations of late. Or – pure corruption has enabled such things as ballots sent to all. Suits should be filed directly with the SCOTUS to end all options for corruption.

    If we must wait til the 2022 elections, or later, fixing the federal voting regulations for the nation should be the first and highest priority. Otherwise Zuckerberg, et al (we know who) will do it again, as you noted. Dominion, et al who make voting machines would also be forced to go through the ropes to prove their operating integrity, or not be contracted to participate in the voting process.

    Regarding voting fairness, we also need to eliminate partisan primaries because, these days, too many worthwhile candidates from other parties are eliminated from selection by the majority of voters who would prefer them because it’s not currently possible. I believe that even qualified, “another party” candidate write-ins are not counted for their party in a partisan primary (otherwise it wouldn’t be a partisan election.)
