BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY

Psalms 19:1 

Breaking News: The "Justice" Department conducts FBI raid on...WHO??

By Mike Huckabee

Guess whose residence and office were raided by seven FBI agents early Wednesday morning as part of an investigation into, we’re told, possible violations of the FARA Act? (That’s the Foreign Agents Registration Act, which prohibits working on behalf of another country without registering as a foreign agent.)

No, it’s not John Kerry, even though former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says of him and his activities concerning Iran and Israel, “If you are out actively trying to undermine America’s foreign policy, you’ve committed the gravest of offenses.” As I told Martha MacCallum on FOX NEWS Wednesday afternoon, Kerry’s rogue talks could undermine our relationship with Israel and even endanger that country

But no, the target of this raid was Rudy Giuliani.

Most of the media have simply let the Kerry controversy go; the denials are enough for them. But just as Kerry deserves the presumption of innocence as Congress conducts a classified hearing with him –- will there even be one? –- so does the former New York mayor and current adviser to President Trump. This unnecessary raid on the always-cooperative Giuliani was designed to make him look guilty of...something. Giuliani’ attorney called it “legal thuggery.” (Recall that they took the same approach with Mike Flynn, and, in an especially disgusting display of power, with Roger Stone.) It was also a way to grab all his electronics and do a deep-dive fishing expedition.

What are they looking for?

One key might be that on the same day, they also compelled attorney Victoria Toensing to turn over her phone, though we’re told she isn’t a target. Toensing did have connections to Ukraine, but she and husband/partner Joe diGenova have also been working on Giuliani’s team to investigate the results of the 2020 election. We speculate that in addition to conversations on activities in Ukraine, the devices of both Giuliani and Toensing might be rich sources of information concerning the state of their investigation into election fraud.

Another possibility is that this has to do with Hunter Biden and his father, the President. According to an insightful commentary at RedState.com, it likely involves allegations of lobbying for Ukrainian officials who were helping Giuliani look into questions regarding Joe, Hunter and Ukraine. Uh-oh, gotta put a stop to THAT. It appears that since Merrick Garland because attorney general, the weaponization of the “Justice” Department has gone back up to full speed.

Megan Fox at PJ MEDIA points out the “Justice” Department’s huge double standard. They can be lightning-fast and aggressive when coming after someone inconvenient like Giuliani, but will slow-walk investigations of their political friends till the end of time.

Much more on this tomorrow.

Fact-Check

By Mike Huckabee

No, that’s not a couple of pretzels. It’s two Politifact “fact-checkers” tying themselves in knots to brand Sen. Ted Cruz’s 100% accurate statement about court-packing as “False” by redefining “rigging the game” from “Changing the rules to benefit yourself” to “Following the rules that always apply when you hold the Senate majority.”

Incidentally, I’d like to point out that by going to the original article to affirm that it took two “fact-checkers” to cook up this drivel, my staffers did more actual fact-checking than the “fact-checkers" did.

Revised CDC Guidelines

By Mike Huckabee

The CDC has changed its COVID-19 facemask guidelines, saying it’s no longer necessary for fully-vaccinated people to wear masks in most outdoors situations, such as “when they walk, bike or run alone or with members of their household.”

Some might wonder why it was ever necessary for anyone to wear masks outdoors while walking, biking or running alone. Or why fully-vaccinated people should have to continue wearing masks at all.

One outdoor situation where nobody should have been forced to wear masks is athletic events where participants need to be able to take in oxygen. That’s a point that authorities seem to have belatedly received from the outraged blowback they got after a girls’ high school track member who was forced to wear a mask while running the 880 collapsed at the finish line. The infinitesimal risk of COVID to a healthy teenager was deemed greater than the risk of oxygen deprivation.

Thank God, the girl came to after being allowed to breathe freely and seems okay, although she’s still under observation in case she got a concussion from her fall.

While national authorities seem to want pandemic restrictions to drag on forever, as of Tuesday, 24 states have ended mask mandates, and except for rare hotspots such as Michigan, new cases continue to drop, despite the CDC head’s very scientific feeling of “impending doom” about another wave. In fact, one might think we’d be getting close to herd immunity, when you combine all the people who’ve had the virus and recovered, plus that 50% of the population have had at least one of the two vaccination shots (one-third are now fully vaccinated.)

Again, I do not take this disease lightly and urge you to take all reasonable precautions. But at what point do some precautions become unreasonable, and cause more harm than good? The mixed messages are also confusing the public. You can’t urge people to get vaccinated while sending the message that vaccination barely makes a difference in all the hardships you’ll have to keep enduring.

Instapundit offered a round-up of some of the conflicting messages. They also included a handy CDC chart complete with cartoons, to try to explain who should wear a mask in which situations. To entice you to look at it, I’ll mention that they also included a Babylon Bee parody of the chart (just to be clear, the parody is the one at the bottom.)

It was almost surreal to see President Biden speaking outdoors Tuesday without a mask on. I was pretty certain he’d be wearing one in his official presidential portrait. But I’m glad to see him without one for a change. Maybe oxygen deprivation to the brain was the reason for the policies he’s been backing since taking office.

Fox News’ Peter Doocy actually asked his spokesperson Jen Psaki why he was the only world leader wearing a mask during a recent Zoom summit. Her answer suggests that even the White House doesn’t understand the current government mask guidelines.

It’s this kind of confusing and contradictory advice and never-ending restrictions that are really to blame for many frustrated Americans taking Robert Downey’s lead by saying to heck with it, ripping off their masks and just declaring, “I’m Iron Man.” Let’s just hope they got vaccinated first.

A How-To Guide For The Democrats And The Media

By Mike Huckabee

It’s become clear that today’s Democratic Party and its media handmaidens see George Orwell’s novel “1984” not as a cautionary tale but as a how-to guide. Unfortunately for their efforts to rewrite history, the Internet is forever, or at least it will be as long as we can keep total control of it out of the hands of the Silicon Valley socialist billionaires.

Case in point: USA Today’s attempt to sneak one past the public by letting Stacey Abrams alter an op-ed that ran on March 31st, condemning Georgia’s new election integrity law. In the original, she wrote, “I have no doubt that voters of color, particularly Black voters, are willing to endure the hardships of boycotts. But I don’t think that’s necessary — yet.”

But then, the MLB Commissioner announced on April 2nd that the All-Star Game was being moved out of Atlanta (to the much-whiter city of Denver), costing local workers and business owners, most of them black, $100 million in lost revenues. Needless to say, that would not make someone who promoted boycotts very popular with voters, particularly not someone with dreams of running for Governor.

And so…Abracadabra! Abrams’ archived column has magically changed! Now, it includes an attack on Republicans, accusing them of not caring about the monetary loss from boycotts as long as they can suppress the minority vote. And that quote above now reads, “Instead of a boycott, I strongly urge other events and productions to do business in Georgia and speak out against our law and similar proposals in other states.” Congrats, USA Today: Winston Smith himself couldn’t have done a better job.

USA Today claims that Abrams updated the column two weeks earlier and the delay in acknowledging the rewrite was an “oversight.” That sounds suspiciously like the excuse Facebook and Twitter use whenever they ban a conservative for no good reason and get called out for it publically. Besides, two weeks earlier was still AFTER the MLB boycott was announced.

USA Today’s excuse doesn’t answer the question of why Abrams or anyone else should be allowed to rewrite an op-ed that’s already been published to make themselves look better in light of subsequent events. If papers started rewriting all their old editorials to fix everything they ever got wrong, the New York Times editors would be spending more time rewriting old op-eds than writing new ones. Which, come to think of it, might be a better use of their time.

A Reader Writes Back... 

Thank you for speaking the truth.

    All DIMS look better wearing masks! Let them keep their own investments growing. If they are so paranoid at this point, they do need change jobs!

    After listening to Sleepy Joe talk about using more high tech equipment to stop the illegals. His Vice President Harris and Secretary of Homeland Security better get those people in the Intelligence Department to scan the
    horizon along the Southern border. They may find out the CARTEL has more advanced intelligence gathering equipment and better logistics due to the fact MONEY given to the Chinese Intelligence service is more advanced then what Biden and his Administration ever expected.

    It seems that the puppet masters in Beijing, the Vatican, Tehran, Moscow and Soros and Gates hideouts are all pulling the strings in all directions.
    So many conflicting orders from a fake president and his fake vp.
    Now they must want more blood by trying to play God and tell real citizen's we can't celebrate our God given and blood bought freedoms.
    I understand better why a majority are ready to rise up and take down the temple of Satan we call Washington D.C.

    Hello. Please, I beg you, quit pushing the covid vaccine. It is experimental, dangerous, there is no need for it when there is 99.9% chance of not getting virus. I am anti-vaccine. So are family and friends. I will NEVER get this vaccine. I am tired of all of you pushing it. I will not be intimidated into getting it. I should not be forced to get it. My choice. I have done hours of research. It is not good for people!!! Please please stop the narrative!!!!!

    Although it seems abundantly clear that few of the Democrats have ever read the Constitution, it looks like they have read George Orwell's 1984. The practice of rewriting history is rampant in that text, as you well know. God bless.

    Finally, a 'Smidgen' of Intelligence has surfaced about Masks. I have been screaming from the rafters since March/April that any mask that is NOT hermetically sealed to the face and is removed for a second to sneeze, etc. YOU MIGHT CATCH the Covid Virus. If anyone is observant to the people wearing the Diaper is always Picking at it! Masks like Diapers Must be changed for the Same reason! The only difference is one in normal Human Feces and the other is the Dreaded Nanoparticle that can invade your Immune system! If I recall there is something about Politicians that The GOV. is well aware of?

    The only reason they went after RUDY is that fear that HUNTER Biden is
    a wanted man and has a contract out on him issued by someone within the
    Putin inner Circle or his former employer, who was in reality a secret
    member of Putin gang and now have the go ahead to do what they want
    due. They know that JOE is fill his BIG BOY PANTS just like he and Obama
    did in 2015, when Putin took the Crimea area and this recent military
    exercise in Eastern UKRAINE was just a dress rehearsal knowing that
    JOE AND KALAMA will just fill their pants again. When he actually does it
    just like he has done in other parts of the former Soviet Union.

    When he does it watch how fast NATO crumbles due to NO BACKING FROM
    the IMPOSTER in Washington DC.

    I think the Democrats must not have seen the movie “This Is Spinal Tap”. Even if they had, they probably wouldn’t spot the irony in the line “There’s a fine line between stupid and clever”....

    Keep Serving us the Truth and As always, Turn it up to 11.

    P.S. I love each and every newsletter... it’s rather calming to read after watching the nets butcher fact.... God bless you and your’s....

    Governor Huckabee, if the people who were self-righteous or hypocritical in Biblical times were called Pharisees, how about applying that name to the Left? First of all, it may send a few to the Bible to do some reading - always a good thing, and second, might it also might bring others to realize the errors of their ways? Obviously there would be some new expletives in reply but if it came a big enough movement, could it help spawn a Christian re-birth? Love your daily writings and especially your wit.

    This is absolute madness. This country is operating like the Gestapo, accusing people of wrong doing. Of course, they haven't accused Giuliani yet except by the simple fact that they raided his residence. Enough is enough.

    I am so sick of the lying news about the best President we ever and is still our legal President. Dementia Biden is reading what the Socialist Left is putting before him and destroying our great Country. Come on the 80 million that voted for Trump. Start fighting as a strong Conservative group to save our country before we totally lose it like Venezuela lost theirs from the Dominion voting machines. Supreme Court look at the Fraud and save our country.

    Taxation without representation, somehow I kind of remember that phrase. Shall we have another "Boston Tea Party?" Don't let anyone think that "King Biden's" tax won't affect us all, it will & has started with gas, food, everything, going up & up. Oh, then we may have a gas storage how nice.
