DAILY BIBLE VERSE

28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28


A furious backlash to Biden, Garland plan

By Mike Huckabee

I’m very glad to see that Attorney General Merrick Garland’s plan to engage federal, state and local law enforcement to intimidate parents who protest the actions of leftist schools boards is being met with the overwhelming furious backlash it deserves. One commentator said this might be the straw that broke the camel’s back (sorry for triggering any animal lovers) for the Democrats’ dwindling hopes in the midterm elections. This is such an outrageous assault on the most basic rights of all citizens to engage in free speech and protest, and of all parents to have a say in how their children are educated, that the outrage cuts across all political and racial lines.

To be clear: I'm not defending anyone who makes actual physical threats against school board members. But Garland cited no examples of actual threats to justify this. Instead, his statement included vague and overly broad terms such as “harassment” and “intimidation,” which signals that this is really an abuse of power designed to chill free speech. He also offered no justification for literally making a federal case out of these hypothetical threats, which are already covered by laws and police on the local level. The only reasons to federalize this are to assert more control in picking targets and to ramp up the intimidation factor (ironically, Garland is the one who seems to be guilty of attempting to harass and intimidate people.)

Here’s a round-up of just some of the reactions to this Orwellian abuse of power:

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis blasted Garland for “weaponizing the DOJ by using the FBI to pursue concerned parents and silence them through intimidation,” adding, “Florida will defend the free speech rights of its citizens and will not allow federal agents to squelch dissent.” His spokeswoman also called it “despicable and un-American,” saying, “Florida law enforcement is perfectly capable of responding to crimes in Florida, and we have never heard the FBI suggest otherwise. However, disagreement is not harassment. Protest is not terrorism, unless it involves rioting, looting, and assault, like some of the left-wing protests of summer 2020.”

Speaking of that, while the DOJ and FBI busy themselves with surveilling Trump voters and intimidating concerned parents, murders took the biggest spike in history in 2020, nearly 30 percent (thanks, all you police-defunding blue state Governors, mayors and city councils!)…

https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/573550-murders-up-30-percent-in-largest-increase-on-record

And while the FBI is ignoring that, they’re also doing virtually nothing about actual violent terrorists and anarchists like Antifa, as long as they’re on the left.

"Dangerous nonsense"

By Mike Huckabee

Former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy (who initially strongly endorsed Garland’s nomination for Attorney General) has a must-read article at National Review about Garland targeting parents, and he calls the alleged justification for it “dangerous nonsense.”

https://www.nationalreview.com/2021/10/the-biden-justice-departments-lawless-threat-against-american-parents/

McCarthy relates an incredible story about his time in the Clinton DOJ under Garland, when he tried to build a case against the notorious “Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel Rahman for soliciting acts of violence and seditious conspiracy. He says that at the time, Clinton was under pressure from leftwing and Islamic groups affiliated with the Democratic Party. Garland refused to let him pursue the case, telling him that the DOJ had to respect free speech and “avoid ‘chilling’ speech by conflating criminal incitement with constitutionally protected rhetoric that expressed hatred for America.” Later, Osama bin Laden would credit Rahman for the fatwa approving the 9/11 attacks.

So Garland protected Rahman’s free speech but wants to use the free speech of parents angry at leftwing school boards to treat them as terrorists.


Beautiful responses to Biden, Garland

By Mike Huckabee

Tuesday morning, the Supreme Court shattered one more liberal dream by rejecting an appeal of a lower court ruling that D.C. residents are not entitled to voting representation in Congress. That court cited a 2000 SCOTUS ruling that the Constitution does not require that DC must have a right to vote in Congress.

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/landonmion/2021/10/04/supreme-court-declines-to-hear-appeal-over-dc-representation-in-congress-n2596942

DC Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton expressed deep disappointment but insisted that this ruling "has no bearing on D.C. statehood, which would give D.C. residents not only voting representation in Congress but full control over their local affairs."

I’m not a lawyer, but it seems to me that it does. The same Constitution that the SCOTUS found does not require that DC have a vote in Congress also specifically states in Article 1, Section 8, that the nation’s capital will not be part of a state nor treated as a state, but in a neutral district under the sole authority of Congress, where the representatives of all states can meet on equal footing.

https://www.bostonglobe.com/2020/06/21/opinion/constitution-says-no-dc-statehood/

Since this case shows that the SCOTUS will look to the Constitution in deciding such issues, then how can it not suggest that they will bar DC statehood, just as the Constitution does?


Please keep Florida First Lady Casey DeSantis in your prayers

By Mike Huckabee

I hope you’ll remember Florida First Lady Casey DeSantis in your prayers. Her husband, Gov. Ron DeSantis, announced that she’s been diagnosed with breast cancer.

https://redstate.com/jenniferoo/2021/10/04/fl-first-lady-casey-desantis-diagnosed-with-breast-cancer-n451631

Casey is a mother of three, and she has a stellar career on her own. She’s a former national champion equestrian and an Emmy-winning PGA tour host. Her husband told Fox News, “As she faces the most difficult test of her life, she will have not only my unwavering support but the support of our entire family, as well as the prayers and well wishes from Floridians across our state. Casey is a true fighter, and she will never, never, never give up.”


A new Project Veritas undercover video 

By Mike Huckabee

Project Veritas has released another undercover video in its COVID-19 expose series.

https://redstate.com/bonchie/2021/10/05/watch-undercover-project-veritas-video-shows-pfizer-scientists-countering-government-narrative-n452094

This one shows various scientists who work for the vaccine maker and drug giant Pfizer privately admitting that natural immunity from having had COVID is likely better than vaccination and lasts longer (I’ve previously written about studies suggesting that natural immunity recognizes the entire virus rather than just the spike protein, making it more effective against variants.)

Various Pfizer scientists also talk about how they’re indoctrinated to ignore natural immunity, but those with it should be able to get some ID so they won’t be classified as simply “unvaccinated.” Some of them say COVID money is so important to Pfizer that the company doesn’t want anyone talking about natural immunity.

There’s more, and you can read about it and watch the video at the link.


Explosive story 

By Mike Huckabee

NOTE: We’ve had this incendiary story about the Afghanistan evacuation for a couple of days and haven’t run it because the Pentagon issued a statement denying that it’s true. But it’s getting a lot of commentary in conservative media.We’re sharing it just so you’re aware of what the accusations are. Note that the denial of the story comes toward the end.

https://redstate.com/jenvanlaar/2021/10/03/exclusive-maj-gen-ordered-50-evacuees-off-one-of-last-flights-out-of-kabul-to-make-room-for-taliban-souvenir-n451105


Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller update

By Mike Huckabee

A reader complained that we don’t cover the story of Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, who is facing court martial and was put in the brig for speaking out and saying top brass should take accountability for the disastrous pullout from Afghanistan. This makes him so far the only military member to face any Afghanistan-related punishment, and he had nothing to do with it. I don’t know why the reader thinks we haven’t covered this story because we’ve run several articles on it and report whenever there’s a new development. Today, there is:

https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_breakingnews/lt-col-scheller-freed-but-charges-loom_4032636.html

Scheller has been released from military jail. Military officials had planned to conduct a pretrial hearing in secret on Tuesday, but that rightly sparked angry criticism from some media outlets and citizens. Instead, they released him and canceled the hearing. He might still face charges but he’s submitted a request for resignation in lieu of trial.

If the current military brass are smart (which is highly debatable), they’ll take that deal and get this story out of the headlines as quickly as possible, since it’s blowing up in their faces like a Taliban booby trap. Considering the disgusting display of arrogance, incompetence and finger-pointing we’ve seen from them so far, their attempt to persecute a good Marine just for saying what we were all saying is making them look even worse, if such a thing is possible.

    The cowardly fascist Left KNOW we have what it takes to push back because Jan 6th proved that and Americans are pushing back now.
    That is what is making them pee in their panties.
    And don't keep hoping that Jesus will intervene -- he won't until He is sent back AFTER the antichrist.
    It's our country WE need to fight for it like Jews fight for Israel.

    First of all don't have Democrat Friends -- you'd be better off with Judas and Benedict Arnold.
    Snopes IS Left Wing and many of the Internet Rumors they claim to bebunk they indeed started.
    And as for Scheller if he is just another Leftist lickspittle to hell with him -- but then we don't know what was done to him in the Brig do we?

    I question Scheller's real motive for creating the scene. I don't disapprove of his voicing his opinion, but never in uniform or in any way to infer his personal opinion in a professional capacity.

    I l like reading your daily newsletter. My Democrat friends are using Snopes to tell me that my political posts on my Facebook page have false information. I want to know how I can figure out the truth about specific events. I thought that I read that Snopes.com is a left wing fact checker. Is that true?
    What are the the most honest fact checkers? Which search engine should you use? What are the most honest news networks? Thanks for your help.

    It appears to me the TOP Brass in the military need to be PURGED from command Immediately, They are as big if not bigger risk than Biden, Blinken, and Moe. The Media must feel really Proud of their efforts to remove the most capable President in my 75 years of observation and 65 years voting and serving my country in uniform.

    Mike
    One thing : how is it that if American Citizens protesting a suspect Election and quite possible fraud enter the Capitol Hill and unfurl a U.S Flag and take Selfies (and get somewhat raucous) they are hunted down and arrested but a bunch of self proclaimed Illegal Criminals (and that is what they are) can enter the Capitol, follow a U.S Senator into the Bathroom to try to intimidate, harass and bully her and nothing is done?
    Nancy Pelosi walks around with a dozen handmaidens but a U.S Senator (who is a higher rank) has none?
    And where were the "brave" Capitol Hill Police? Hiding in corners hoping to shoot another Patriot?
