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?

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.

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mention of “potential public health implications” suggests that the decision was based on politics, and the paper was retracted because some people didn’t like its data.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is valid or not, but it does seem odd that it was originally peer-reviewed and deemed solid enough to publish, then was retracted without being objectively disproven.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.”

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: 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:

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.”

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.
