Very disturbing story out of China

By Mike Huckabee

There’s a very disturbing report from Radio Free Asia that communist Chinese officials are detaining Christians in windowless “transformation facilities” with no ventilation or time allowed outdoors, and brainwashing them to renounce their faith.

One of the anonymous victims who says he was held for nearly 10 months claimed that most of his fellow detainees had committed no offenses but were put under criminal detention for taking part in church-related activities. Sadly, this is shocking but not surprising. Please read the whole story, as hard as it may be.

This is exactly the kind of outrage I was talking about when I criticized China in a recent tweet which some deliberately obtuse people pretended to be offended by, branding it as racist and trying to “cancel” me over it. For the record: I would never insult the Chinese people, but I refuse to stop speaking out against the Chinese government’s oppression, torture and genocide. And I will not apologize for calling out the hypocrisy of giant corporations and media companies that happily do business with the CCP while climbing on their high horses and boycotting American states like Georgia just for trying to insure that their elections are honest.

New South Carolina mass shooting

By Mike Huckabee

Six people are dead in a bizarre mass shooting in Rock Hill, South Carolina. The shooter’s victims were a prominent doctor and his wife, their two small grandchildren, and a man who was working at their home. The shooter then turned the gun on himself and died. He’s now been identified as former NFL cornerback Phillip Adams, who played pro football for six seasons with six different teams. He suffered multiple injuries, including concussions, and had been treated by the doctor at one point.

There are more details at the link, but this is a developing story, so expect more to come.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who no doubt thinks she’s doing a bang-up job of handling the national budget, also insists that things at the border were “very bad” under Trump, but they’re on a “good path” under Biden. Well, a well-worn path, at least, what with so many people trampling over it.

Things are on such a “good path” that Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has just ordered the Texas Rangers to investigate claims of sex crimes against children in the now-packed detention centers for unaccompanied minors.

Jobless claims up

By Mike Huckabee

Economists expected this week’s jobless claims to drop to 680,000. Instead, they unexpectedly shot up from last week’s 719,000 to 744,000.

There are various possible explanations at the link. Having a President who came into office actively working to eliminate thousands of jobs and destroy entire industries is oddly not among them.

The "60 Minutes" story that keeps on giving

By Mike Huckabee

Just when you think the “60 Minutes” hit piece on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis can’t get any worse, another aftershock goes off in their faces.

In their scramble to defend their bogus scandal story, “60 Minutes” wrote that they “spoke to State Emergency Management Director Jared Moskowitz twice, but he declined to be interviewed on camera for our story until well after our deadline.”

Moskowitz (a Democrat) responded on Twitter that he was too busy dealing with a 100-year health emergency to appear on camera, but he did speak with “60 Minutes.” He said, “They were very nice, but I told them that (their Publix story) was bull(BLEEP!) Walked them through the whole process.”

It’s obvious that heads should roll over this story, if not for it being fake partisan propaganda than at least for it being such incompetently created, easily debunked fake partisan propaganda.

Unfortunately, I’m inclined to agree with Beckett Adams, who writes at the Washington Examiner that “60 Minutes” is “standing by” this contemptible lie, and there will be no firings and no accountability, apologies or repercussions.

He cites numerous other examples of big news media pushing similar false accusations against Republicans and conservative organizations and facing no blowback. Some of the perpetrators, like Katie Couric and Dan Rather, who gave us the concept of “fake but accurate news,” are still treated as beloved celebrity journalists. Rather even has a journalism award named after him and a standing invitation to participate in any Biden White House press briefing of his choosing.

I guess he and Biden could spend the time swapping pointers on how to tell lies about Republican Presidents.
