Predictably, the story from The Guardian about real Russian spying at the American embassy in Moscow is getting scant media attention during Paul Manafort’s show-trial on old loan fraud and tax charges. Whether or not he broke the law, Manafort is considered by the “Russia” special counsel to be collateral damage in their search-and-destroy mission to somehow bring down President Trump. Presiding Judge T. S. Ellis III said it well when he observed that Robert Mueller would have no interest in Manafort if he weren’t trying to get the man to “sing” or even “compose” information damaging to the President.

But the story about actual Russian “meddling” is still out there, and former Secret Service agent and conservative commentator Dan Bongino has offered some firsthand information in a recent podcast. It seems that not only does he know the identity of the Russian national who violated the rules by conversing on her personal email with other embassy employees and meeting frequently with the primary Russian security office –- a big red flag –- but he says he even met her when he was at the embassy.

As an employee of the State Department, she was supposed to be using official government email for all communications with government employees. Hey, at least she didn’t set up her own personal email server for all her State Department business and use BleachBit software to delete thousands of subpoenaed documents (“where even God can’t read them”) to hide her tracks from the FBI, Freedom Of Information Act requests and congressional oversight committees. That would have been REALLY bad! But I digress.

I'll make you an offer Mr. Blake

By Mike Huckabee

Washington Post writer Aaron Blake wrote an incredibly disingenuous column, trying to spin away my daughter, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’, dead-on accurate list of acts of open media hostility against her, President Trump and other Trump officials and supporters.  Among the microscopic hair-splitting, he actually tries to claim she lied about MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace calling for “choking” her, because Wallace merely asked if someone wanted to “wring her neck,” and that’s not the same as calling for her to be choked.

I’ll make you an offer, Mr. Blake: Let me wring your neck, then let me choke you.  Afterwards, you can tell me if you felt any difference.


News from Venezuela

By Mike Huckabee

As if socialist Venezuela could fall into any deeper chaos than it’s already suffering, someone allegedly launched an assassination attempt on President Nicolas Maduro by drone attack. I add the “allegedly” because there are questions about whether this was a real attack or a false flag operation to give Maduro an excuse to blame it on his opponents and launch a crackdown. It’s best to reserve judgement or comment until more is known for certain.

National Security Advisor John Bolton says the US had nothing to do with it, and an obscure group called “Soldiers in T-shirts” claimed responsibility. Nothing much is known about them, except I’d bet they aren’t wearing Che Guevara T-shirts.  More at the link.


A good guy with a gun

By Mike Huckabee

Saturday in Titusville, Florida, a gunman started shooting after a fistfight broke out at a crowded public park during a children’s back-to-school event. Thankfully, in one of those instances gun control advocates claim never happen, there was an armed citizen with a concealed carry permit on hand. He pulled his weapon, shot the gunman and sent him to the hospital. There were no reported injuries other than the gunman’s.

Ironically, the event was called the “Peace In Our City” rally, a “day of fun and no violence.” Police praised the armed citizen, saying he will not face any charges. They said that without him there, “this could have been so much worse.”

So the next time someone tells you that the “good guy with a gun stopping a mass shooter” narrative is a myth, remember Titusville, where one good guy with a gun proved to be more effective at keeping our children safe than the police, a crowd of people with good intentions, or a banner proclaiming “Peace In Our City.”



Religion makes women safer

By Mike Huckabee

A new study published by the Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion found that women are safer when they are around men with religious convictions.  Male college students who have religious affiliations and who participate in religious activities are less likely to be sexually violent and aggressive toward women.  They are also less likely to have friends who approve of forcing women to have sex, less likely to drink alcohol, to consume pornography, to be sexually promiscuous or to make coercive sexual advances toward women. To paraphrase Thomas Sowell, these are the kind of findings that are so obvious, only intellectuals could be surprised by them.   

The researchers say this study suggests that colleges should be more welcoming to religious groups, especially since “hostility to such groups may be counter-productive to reducing sexual violence on campuses.”  Instead, while claiming that they are seeking to reduce sexual violence, they impose rules that allow males to intrude on once-private spaces for women, such as locker rooms and restrooms, and ban women from carrying weapons for self-defense; all while trying to drive traditional religious beliefs and organizations off our campuses. 

It seems to me that if there really is a “war on women,” as liberals like to claim, all the shelling is coming from the left.

    Kudos to the person with the carry permit in Titusville, FL...which is where we live! I also have a concealed weapons permit and will not hesitate to use it, but have yet to be given the opportunity in 3 decades.
