Today's Commentary --- 20 questions for Rod Rosenstein -- Unintended consequences -- Atheist group targets Louisiana Police Department -- Words matter -- Absurd ideas -- The Baltic Experience 2019 -- Sinema is "Far Side" crazy -- Evening Edition - Daily Verse
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is scheduled to give testimony on Wednesday under unusual conditions. The meeting will take place in a secure “safe room” to help guard against classified leaks, and questioning will come from only four people representing the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees, two Republicans and two Democrats. Even Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan, members of the House Freedom Caucus, will not be in the room, but they get to submit questions and they’ve been promised that those questions will be asked.
The idea, in theory, is to make it possible to widen the scope of the questioning as far as possible. So, as long as the questioning is being opened up and questions by others can be submitted, here's another just-for-fun list of questions, this time for Rosenstein. Here we go…

Some leftist PC warriors who have been politicizing and weaponizing the legal system for years, suing people for doing things they don’t like (such as free association), are discovering that the blindfold Lady Justice wears means that the weapon they created can also be turned against their side. And sometimes, the people wielding it can be just as unreasonable as the people who created it. But that doesn’t mean they don’t have the letter of the law on their side.
Note: This article is very biased and tries to dismiss all complaints of discrimination against men by tying them in with this lone nutjob (it justifies that by quoting a sitcom and whining about “toxic masculinity,” to give you an idea of the slant), but it does contain the facts of the case, if you can pick them out of all the snideness and virtue signaling.
Atheist group targets Louisiana Police Department
By Mike Huckabee
The latest target of the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (a group of atheists with far too much time and money on their hands) is the Shreveport, Louisiana, police department. After getting the usual lawsuit threat from the atheists, who always feel horribly threatened by news that people they’ve never met are expressing their religious beliefs somewhere a thousand miles away, the police department announced that it will no longer host prayer vigils meant to help heal the community after violent crimes, or promote them on Facebook or by department press releases.
But three cheers for volunteer police chaplain Debra Kelly, who said that while the promotions may be stopped, the prayer vigils will continue. She hosted one at her church in July after four people were killed in violent crimes. Three hundred people showed up, and she’s continued to host one every month, and will keep on doing so. She said, “We’re still going to have prayer vigils, and we’re still going to pray, and we’re still going to encourage our community to come together, and we’re not going to worry about what some group in Wisconsin is going to make noise about.”
My solution would be to invite those atheists to come down to Shreveport and ride along with the police and walk up to the doors with them as they answer those violent crime 911 calls. I have a feeling that would cure them of their hostility to prayer pretty quickly.

That growing caravan of Central American (and now Mexican) migrants that plans to barge across our border could run into a natural barrier they weren’t counting on. Hurricane Willa, is on track to slam into Mexico’s western coast and bisect the path of the caravan with hazardous winds, rain and washed-out roads. Cue liberals blaming President Trump's pulling out of the Paris CO2 Accords as a fiendish plan to whip up more hurricanes to stop illegal immigration.
Meanwhile, the A.P. caved to liberal “OUTRAGE” and changed a headline in which they referred to the approximately 7,000-strong caravan as an “army” of migrants. According to the liberals, this was offensive because it reinforced a racist, fascist image of them as “invaders” rather than “refugees” escaping their homeland. As one scolded, “Words matter.”
Okay, if they want to get all picky about how words mean things and stuff: as “refugees,” they escaped their homelands as soon as they crossed into Mexico. They didn’t need to continue onward for hundreds of miles to enter the US to be refugees. Also, we have a process for dealing with actual refugees, and they’ve made it clear they have no intention of complying with it. They’ve said they’re going to “knock down any door” that gets into their way and come across our border en masse whether we like it or not.
You know what sounds like? An “invading army.”

The New York Times reacted with front page shock and horror to news that the Trump Administration is considering defining gender as an immutable biological condition determined before birth by whether you have a Y chromosome or not, not by how you feel about yourself – you know, the way it was understood for thousands of years up until the Obama Administration came along and ripped the M’s and W’s off all the bathroom doors.
Of course, the Times editors are all a-flutter over that. One more example of George Orwell’s dictum that there are some ideas so absurd that only intellectuals can believe them.
The Baltic Experience 2019
I am thrilled to announce an unforgettable trip to the Baltics for the summer of 2019! After many years of the Israel Experiences and our most recent trip the Mediterranean Experience cruise, we are bringing you another phenomenal cruise, the Baltic Experience! This all-inclusive cruise will feature some of the most beautiful places in the Baltic Sea and we will get to travel to and absorb these destinations aboard a luxury cruise ship from the Azamara Cruise line. If you have traveled with us before, you already know that all-inclusive means exactly that and there are no surprises along the way. The Baltic Experience will be no different. And when the weather is often unbearably hot throughout most of the US in August, we will be enjoying the cool and delightful weather that makes travel in the Baltic region perfect. Once again we have the entire ship and will fill our time on board with spectacular entertainment and special guests. In addition to the cruise we have multiple pre and post cruise offerings you can choose from to extend your trip. Our last cruise sold out in record time so we encourage you to get your cabin secured soon. We look forward to traveling with you soon and as always we will work tirelessly and do everything in our control to bring you The Greatest Trip.
See you on the boat,
Sinema is "Far Side" crazy
By Mike Huckabee
Here’s a riddle for you: How is Arizona’s Democratic Senate nominee Krysten Sinema like a “Far Side” calendar? Because both bring us something hilariously crazy every day of the week.
Today’s offering from Rep. Sinema was unearthed by the Federalist magazine from a now-defunct periodical in 2006. She’s quoted as calling conservatives “Neanderthals” and saying that stay-at-home moms are “leeching off their husbands or boyfriends,” and the idea that choosing to live that way is some sort of feminism is “bull (BLEEP).” She later claimed she was just being “sarcastic,” which is still not that great an attitude to have toward stay-at-home moms.
If you think I’m bringing you too many reports of the bizarre and hostile-to-her-own-state comments of Rep. Sinema, I do apologize. But I am trying hard to hold it down to only one a day. This reminds me of a story told to me by a friend in the ‘90s. His brother, who was a local TV news anchor, told him that he ran a Clinton scandal story every day. My friend asked if that wasn’t media bias. His brother replied, “No, I get five a day. If I were biased, I’d run ‘em all.”
