Chalk One Up For The Good Guys

By Mike Huckabee

A California judge overruled state officials and ordered them to add Larry Elder’s name to the ballot in the list of challengers to Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom. Why are Democrats so afraid of black conservatives?

https://redstate.com/brandon_morse/2021/07/21/larry-elder-wins-court-battle-against-democrats-playing-dirty-to-keep-him-out-of-california-recall-election-n414266

Update On Masks For Children

By Mike Huckabee

Update: Yesterday, I linked to a story about a report in the journal JAMA Pediatrics that found that forcing children to wear facemasks for hours in school led to them inhaling dangerously high levels of carbon dioxide. I learned afterward that JAMA had pulled the study, citing numerous issues with its methodology, instruments and conclusions.

However, in a premium story at Epoch Times, the study’s lead author, clinical psychologist Dr. Harald Walach, took issue with the retraction.

https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_morningbrief/author-of-retracted-study-on-harm-of-mask-wearing-by-children-says-removal-was-political_3911445.html

Walach said JAMA failed to specify how he failed to provide sufficiently convincing evidence of his conclusions. He contends that the measurements are valid and were conducted by people with high levels of expertise, and he said the way to disprove research is to produce better and different results. He said he believes JAMA’s mention of “potential public health implications” suggests that the decision was based on politics, and the paper was retracted because some people didn’t like its data.

I’m not qualified to determine whether a particular medical study is valid or not, but it does seem odd that it was originally peer-reviewed and deemed solid enough to publish, then was retracted without being objectively disproven. The very suggestion that such decisions are being made based on politics is a large part of the reason why so many people have grown skeptical of our “expert” class, who insist they are unquestionably correct about something, then a month later, say the opposite and insist that that’s now unquestionably correct.

This is the slippery slope you go down when you start letting politics corrupt hard sciences, as it has been for a few years now. Another example is when medical organizations embrace transgender activism. It’s fine to declare that a man can become a woman by believing hard enough, if you’re a trans activist or an author of sci-fi novels or fairy tales. But please, don’t point to your medical degree and try to convince us that that’s a biological fact.

It’s like saying, “The Roman Colosseum is a Victorian house, and you must believe me because I’m an architect.” It doesn’t convince anyone that the Colosseum is a Victorian house. It just makes people assume you must be a really lousy architect.

In a related story, the CDC announced that a recent reported big spike in deaths following COVID vaccinations was a mistake. The number suddenly jumped from about 6,000 to over 12,000. A CDC spokeswoman said that someone doing an update on a passive reporting system they run with the FDA must’ve made a mistake, which was noticed after a few days, and they’re “working it out.”

https://justthenews.com/politics-policy/coronavirus/cdc-reports-mistake-caused-recent-false-spike-death-reports-after

Two points worth noting:

1. Deaths in the period after receiving the vaccine do not necessarily mean the vaccine caused the deaths.

2. Making dumb mistakes that big that you can’t even explain does not help inspire public confidence in the CDC.


Reporting The Truth About The Biden Administration

By Mike Huckabee

I kind of feel sorry for our poor media members, having to work so hard to report the truth about the Biden Administration. They’d no sooner finished burying the latest revelations from Hunter’s laptop about Joe being knee-deep in those business deals he claimed to know nothing about than this popped up and they had to rush for their shovels again:

https://www.westernjournal.com/hillary-2-0-biden-used-private-email-vp-send-government-intelligence-hunter-biden-report/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

JustTheNews.com reports (and stop me if this sounds familiar) that when he was Vice President, Joe Biden sent emails to his son Hunter from a private email account that included government information he’d received from the State Department.

Granted, it wasn’t quite as dangerous as some of the information that was compromised thanks to Hillary Clinton’s private email server, but it’s still the kind of thing that would be a major scandal if a Republican did it. Luckily for President Biden, we now have the Hillary precedent that says it’s okay to compromise government information on private email accounts, as long as you’re a prominent Democrat.

If you’d like to know the details, click the link. That’s probably the only place you’re ever likely to see them.


Part 3

By Mike Huckabee

Ben & Jerry’s leftist, anti-Israel virtue-signaling continues to backfire like Laurel & Hardy’s Model T. I already reported that their decision not to sell their ice cream in “occupied Palestinian territory” likely ran afoul of laws in both Israel and the US, and had sparked the removal of their products from stores in both nations. Now, here’s the latest ka-boom in their faces:

https://www.westernjournal.com/ben-jerrys-anti-israel-stunt-backfires-distributor-likely-forced-fire-palestinian-workers/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

The company’s distributor in the West Bank says that if they can’t sell ice cream there, it will take away such a large part of their business that they’ll have to fire 10 Palestinian workers who could never earn as much at any other job in the region.

So we might have a new candidate for Biggest Lie of All Time: “We’re Ben and Jerry, and we’re here to help you!”

The History Of Policing

By Mike Huckabee

The left rewrites history more than Hollywood rewrites movie scripts, and usually with the same putrid results. As tiring as it is to constantly have to correct it, I won’t let them get away with spreading these lies. So please jot this down for future reference:

“No, policing did NOT grow out of Southern slave patrols.”

https://www.westernjournal.com/debunking-another-liberal-lie-course-policing-didnt-begin-slavery/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

That link has a little history of policing, including the nugget that the first major police department in the US was established in Boston in 1838. It grew out of mercantile interests’ concerns about lawless urbanization, and their belief that a stable and orderly environment for business had to be maintained for the “collective good.”

What grew out of Southern slave patrols was Jim Crow laws and vigilante groups like the KKK. Guess who invented those? That’s some real history you’ll probably never learn in today’s schools.

    You may consider me to be a conspiracy theorist, but I don't believe I am. I am of the opinion that opening the southern border to anyone and everyone was a cold, calculated maneuver on the part of the democrats. By allowing unvetted and undocumented individuals into the USA, without knowledge of their health status, or actions to correct same, is what is allowing the COVID-19 to spread and increase across the US, which is going to enable the government to institute another lockdown, thereby attempting to continue exerting control of the entire population. The push to immunize children under the age of 12 is also untried and untested propaganda since there are no studies that I am aware of that delineate the long-term benefits or risks to small children.

    Letter to Mike Huckabee:
    Hi Mike,
    I appreciate your newsletters.

    In the recent story https://www.theepochtimes.com/49-fully-vaccinated-new-jersey-residents-have-died-from-covid-19_3913918.html, 49 vaccinated people, out of total 4.9 million vaccinated, had died from covid. The Medical director, Dr. Ed Lifshitz, said, "[that's 1 out of 100,000 vaccinated]. That means vaccines are about 99.999 percent effective in preventing deaths due to COVID-19,”

    Multiple sites also reported "99.999% effectiveness", like https://dailyvoice.com/new-jersey/essex/news/covid-19-vaccine-proves-99999-effective-in-new-jersey/813156/

    But it's just not correct.

    If it was, you could say, "NOT getting vaccinated is 99.985% effective at preventing deaths" just by taking the roughly 630 unvaccinated people who recently died over the 4.1 million unvaccinated people in the state.

    Furthermore, this stat makes people think that if you went back in time and gave the vaccine beforehand to the first 100,000 people who died from COVID, that only 1 would still die. In reality, closer to 10,000 people would still die.

    Effectiveness is measured by comparison to a control group. The director should have compared the number of deaths to the number of deaths had they NOT taken the vaccine.
    It's actually not hard to calculate...

    New Jersey is roughly 50% vaccinated.
    In the half that isn't vaccinated (the control group), about 630 have died from COVID in the last 90 days.
    In the half that is vaccinated, about 49 have died in the last 90 days.
    So that's 581 less deaths from the 630 of the control group.

    That equals 92.200% effectiveness against death.

    That's a big difference from 99.999%.
    To demonstrate..
    Say you go swimming in shark-infested waters with 100,000 other people.
    But you're all wearing shark repellent.
    They say it's 99.999% effective.
    That's 1 person attacked out of 100,000... and you're comfortable with that.
    But then they tell you it's only 92.2% effective.
    Well that's about 7,800 people attacked. Do those number feel comfortable now?

    Why won't they give us the true numbers so we can decide what we'll do?

    You need to check your history facts. The Klu Klux Klan was formed to stop carpet baggers from stealing southern farmers homes, businesses and land.

    Governor Huckabee,

    Have you been getting complaints about email services blocking your emails? The reason I ask is that my email service (yahoo email) just started labeling your emails as spam and automatically removing them and placing them in the "spam" folder. They are still removing emails from any conservative source and placing them in the "spam" folder.

    Has anyone else brought this to your attention? Is there a service, which we conservatives can trust? I have been with yahoo email since its inception and hate to leave them. However, I will not be censored.

    "revelations from Hunter’s laptop about Joe being knee-deep in those business deals"

    And you keep on and on and on about this but it obviously is not illegal and SOP in the sewer. So do like they told me when I got back from the Nam and had to put up with all the abuse, GET OVER IT!!!

    Our country has elected a President and Vice president to lead the USA to uphold its Constitution and the laws before it. It has failed in the most colossal way. Biden owns this failure although he is not in charge, This nitwit was the choice of others not the American citizen, The so called Deep State is so powerful that a pair of human beings so unqualified to hold the title President and Vice president has happened, a force hidden from public view are controlling this Nation and it is not America friendly similar to the Obama years only to have gone to another extreme to ruin the country's foundation. Biden had an anchor tied to his leg coming to power the forces behind him kept him out of sight they have allowed the public to see what a misfit he is and his removal will be soon. The orders he signed are in place they remain however the damage is done and biden will be disposed of and the other nitwit harris will do more damage before 2022. Can America hold on till 2022 is a major concern, even then the major forces got America into this mess will it do it again in 2022? What can stop it?? All our enemies seem to have influence I hope Americans have a lot of fight in them we will need it.
