SOME HOPE FOR JUSTICE
Since I want you to take some time off from the news and enjoy your weekend (particularly if you’re in a state or city where you still have the Constitutional right to leave your house and/or enjoy your weekend), I’m not going to get into the ongoing Michael Flynn case or the media’s spinning like an out-of-control merry-go-round to try to convince us that illegal unmasking of incoming White House officials is no big deal, that the illegality we’ve actually seen evidence of is just a wacky conspiracy theory, and that there’s nothing to see here, so just go back to watching MSNBC.
However…if you’d like a little reassurance that justice will at long last be served, here’s some hope from Thomas Lifson of The American Thinker. He recounts and links to a more in-depth analysis by retired Naval intelligence officer J.E. Dyer, who knows how the intelligence agencies operate from the inside. She believes that the recent Flynn developments, with the dropping of charges and the unmasking of the unmaskers, is just the “camel’s nose under the tent,” a small hint of a very large scandal/prosecution that’s coming, and that federal prosecutor John Durham is building a case that he’s keeping under tight security, involving massive, long-standing abuse of the national security apparatus by the Obama White House. She believes we will discover it stretches back well before the Flynn targeting and the Trump Russian Collusion scam.
Even if you’re not in a blue state where you can get arrested if you leave your house, lockdown in front of your TV tonight for another great new episode of “Huckabee” on TBN. I’ll talk to White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow about how to get the economy back up and roaring again. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton will talk about the threat to constitutional rights by overreaching authorities during the virus lockdowns. You’ll meet a Huck’s Hero who’s helping save some of the world’s most vulnerable orphaned children in Haiti. And on the lighter side, you’ll be amazed by comedian/”anti-juggler” Ivan Pecel. And I'm thrilled to welcome one of my most-wanted musical guests of all time, the transcendent Sara Evans.
Don’t miss a minute of this very special episode of “Huckabee,” tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, and the same times on Sunday, only on TBN.

NEW VACCINE PARTNERSHIP
Friday, President Trump announced the creation of a new public-private partnership, designed to develop and make available to everyone a vaccine for the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus by the end of the year or even sooner.
Appropriately named “Operation Warp Speed,” the goal is to develop a vaccine faster than any vaccine has ever been created, tested, cleared, and distributed before. The partnership involves the federal government, medical professionals, pharmaceutical giants, and the US military. Trump called it “a massive scientific, industrial and logistical endeavor, unlike anything our country has seen since the Manhattan Project,” which developed the atomic bomb during World War II. It sounds like another reason why we're lucky we elected a business manager in 2016 instead of another machine politician.
There are more details at the link. I urge members of the media to read the details closely because I don’t want to see any fake news stories claiming that Trump said he wants to drop the atomic bomb on the virus.
NEW HOUSE STIMULUS PASSES
As expected on Friday, the House passed, largely on party lines, the most expensive bill in history, a $3 trillion alleged coronavirus rescue bill that’s actually a piñata stuffed with some of the most radical leftist wish list items ever passed (even though some Democrats, like AOC, complained that it doesn’t go far enough or spend enough money.)
At the link, Newt Gingrich lists some of the non-virus-related items in it (blocking voter ID laws, bailing out spendthrift blue states, giveaways to illegal immigrants, taxpayer funding of abortions, and ironically, a tax break for the rich – only it’s rich property owners in blue states, like Nancy Pelosi, so that's okay.) Gingrich said it’s so crazy (it mentions “cannabis” 68 times and “jobs” only 52 times) that it seems like a joke. Obviously, the Senate won’t pass it, and Trump would never sign it.
So why would such a wily political tactician as Pelosi allow it to come up to a vote and make sure it passes? Gingrich has a theory about that, and – surprise! – it has far more to do with the upcoming elections than it does with helping anyone who’s suffering from the economic shutdown due to the virus.
WORTH A READ
Worth a Read: Peggy Noonan on the “class struggle over lockdown,” between the protected class lecturing us to stay in place indefinitely to be “safe,” and the working class who know there’s no such thing as “safe” and whose lives are a series of tough choices that the protected class has never had to deal with.
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie made a similar argument to the very-much-protected hosts of “The View,” who can’t seem to grasp why those selfish people out there want to risk getting a virus by going to work to feed their families and save their businesses.
