“Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

Matthew 5:3

Two-Tiered Justice

By Mike Huckabee

I find it hard to believe that America has such a shortage of criminals that the FBI has to go out and manufacture them. But that seems to be the case, considering that the plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is starting to smell like an entrapment scheme that might not have existed if FBI undercover agents hadn’t lured people into it. And now, another example:

A now-former DEA agent lost his job and is facing up to 15 years in prison for his alleged part in the January 6th Capitol violence. But he told Tucker Carlson on Fox News that he only came to Washington because an FBI informant invited him there. He says he brought his sidearm and stood outside with the informant because he thought he had been invited to help keep the peace and protect the public.

He’s now accused of breaking 40 US Code 5104. That’s what? Brace yourself: it makes it a felony to “step on or climb on any statue, seat, wall, fountain or other architectural feature or any tree, shrub, plant, or turf” on the Capitol grounds.

So this man who served his country for decades has lost his job and is facing up to 15 years in prison, not for taking part in a riot inside the Capitol but for standing outside on the grass. Meanwhile, leftist anarchists who actually did climb on public monuments, topple them, smash them and set them on fire are being released with no charges filed.

It should outrage every American to see such corruption of the legal system usher in the kind of two-tiered “justice” we used to see only in banana republics. It’s especially infuriating to see the media covering it up to protect the Biden Administration after railing for four years that Trump was “shredding the Constitution” without giving any concrete examples of how he was allegedly doing that.

Glenn Greenwald has more on the FBI creating terrorist plots, and how this isn’t really new.

Byron York has some things to say about Nancy Pelosi’s bias in picking members of her committee to “investigate” the Capitol violence.

And leave it to the satire site the Babylon Bee to summarize the FBI’s actions perfectly (aside from this newsletter, about the only outlet left that’s still interested in jokes that are funny because they’re true):

Chicago Shootings Are On The Rise, Again

By Mike Huckabee

Expressway shootings in Chicago are surging, with two on the same day last week, bringing the total to 137 just so far this year. There were 52 in all of 2019 and 128 in 2020.

Of course, the roadways aren’t the only dangerous places to be in Chicago. Over the weekend, 70 people were shot and 12 killed. Last weekend, 56 were shot and 11 killed. The details are here, and they're heartbreaking.

The state police got a $12.5 million state grant in February for automated license plate readers, software and specialized cameras to help fight the expressway shootings, but they haven’t been installed yet. Meanwhile, Democrats like President Biden continue to blame the problem on gun dealers who don’t run background checks, as if criminals buy their guns from legal gun dealers. Or maybe the guns just go around firing themselves.

Or maybe, as Mayor Lori Lightfoot suggested, it’s all due to racism and is Trump’s fault. That’s why she rejected his offer of federal troops to help, but is now begging Biden for them. I guess she assumed the shooting victims prior to January 20, 2021, would rather have been shot than accept Trump's help.

If you’d like to read about all the “nuances” of the argument over why Chicago is so bloody and whether it’s due to the “defund the police” movement (Mayor Lightfoot has proposed cutting nearly $59 million from the police budget), here’s everything you might ever want to know from NBC News:

On the other hand, since Democrats always insist we have to get to the “root cause” of crime, okay, here’s your root ball: thanks to the city’s leadership driving cops to quit, they’re now outnumbered up to 10-1 by gang members. Gangs commit about two-thirds of all the murders in Chicago, and thanks to the corrupt city government, gang leaders enjoy a great deal of protection from the police.

And this all grows out of one big root: Chicago’s last Republican Mayor left office in 1931.

CDC Asks To Withdraw Emergency Use Authorization Of Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel

By Mike Huckabee

The CDC has asked the FDA to withdraw its emergency use authorization for the Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel to test for COVID-19.

They found that the test, which has been used to detect COVID-19 since February of 2020, is unable to differentiate between different types of coronaviruses, including telling whether someone has COVID or influenza. That wouldn’t be a problem if it were used just to tell people they needed to get an antigen test to be certain it was COVID. But this is sparking questions about whether these tests were relied on when compiling numbers of COVID infections, which would call those into question. And that’s just what the CDC needs right now: another reason for people to question its credibility.

A Sign Of The Times, Or An Answered Prayer?

By Mike Huckabee

Congratulations to the US swim team, which has already won eight medals at the Tokyo Olympics, including a record six on the first day.

It’s a shame that the accomplishments of so many great young Americans are being overshadowed by the anti-American political grandstanding of a handful of ingrates. But it appears that the squeaky wheels have soured a lot of people on watching the Summer Games. The opening ceremony pulled only 17 million US viewers across all viewing platforms, the lowest numbers in 33 years. By comparison, the 2016 Rio Games opener attracted 26.5 million viewers.

In a sign of how much the knee-taking and bad-mouthing of America and its flag and anthem have turned off viewers, many are saying online that for the first time ever, they’re rooting against certain US teams, such as women’s soccer and basketball. The women’s soccer team kicked off with a 3-0 skunking by Sweden, and the US men’s basketball team, filled with NBA pros, snapped its 17-year, 25-game winning streak by losing its first game to France, 83-76.

In the last 4-1/2 minutes, the US team missed five shots in a row and didn’t score a single point. And in the comments sections of conservative media outlets, normally rah-rah patriotic Americans were saying things like, “Serves ‘em right” and “Never thought I’d say this, but ‘Go, France!’” (For the record, the French team also had some NBA players.)

Unless these athletes are throwing the games so they won’t have to suffer the terrible pain of hearing their own National Anthem while receiving gold medals, I have to assume something else is up. Maybe they’re learning that pride goeth before a fall, and they should have prioritized effort, practice and teamwork over political posturing. Or maybe God really does listen when people pray for their teams to win, but this time around, all the Americans who pray are backing their opponents.

Coral Reef News

By Mike Huckabee

Say, environmental apocalypse fans, remember how we heard that all the coral on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia was dying, and because of that, we were ALL GOING TO DIE!!? Well, the coral cover did drop from the mid-‘80s through 2010s, but has since been resurgent, and it’s now at a record high.

But don’t worry: the good news is that because it’s now at a record peak, it’s likely to decline over the next few years, giving the same people the opportunity to again tell us that it, and we, are ALL GOING TO DIE!!!

As we all are…eventually. But not from this.

For The 10,345th Time

By Mike Huckabee

“Don’t believe everything you see on the Internet!” Over the weekend, a video went viral allegedly showing a cop in Caledonia, Wisconsin, planting a baggie of drugs in a suspect’s car. After it was spread everywhere (with help from celebrities, of course), police were denounced and the cop doxed and threatened, the cop’s body cam footage was released. It showed that he was merely returning an empty baggie found in the passenger’s pocket during a search. Nobody was charged with a drug offense. It was just a speeding ticket.

I don’t know how fast the driver was going, but it couldn’t possibly have been as fast as people on the Internet jump to conclusions.

    The only reason for the new mandate is that due to the inability
    of the Blue States to undersrtand due to their draconian rules
    and ideas has completely destroyed their recovery. In addition,
    the RED States have passed them and left in the dust and with
    the arrival of all the illegals being dropped into their communities
    as a payack against Biden. Those same blue states are completely lost
    and will never catch up and get back into the race due to
    all the scare tactics being implelmented.

    Again, more evidence that COVID statistics have been rigged all along as the tests cannot differentiate between types of virus. Course we have known that for over a year, although it was regarded as 'misinformation' by the media and government.

    Why do we put up with these shenanigans???

    A Democrat returned from his quorum-busting trip to D.C. and was in the Texas Capitol, then the Republican leadership just let him go… So the Democrat went back to D.C.

    With that in mind, the One Click Survey asks: Do you think House Speaker Dade Phelan (R) is working for or against grassroots Republicans?

    First, here is today's Texas Minute.

    – Michael Quinn Sullivan

    Phelan Let The Democrat Go…

    The special session of the Texas Legislature has been paralyzed by House Democrats having “busted” the constitutional quorum requirement for conducting business by leaving the state. Late last week, news broke that a Democrat had left his caucus’ Washington, D.C. hotel and returned to the Texas Capitol. But just a few short days later word came that the Democrat, State Rep. Philip Cortez (D-San Antonio) had gone back to D.C.

    Did Cortez slip out the window of a Capitol bathroom, or get airlifted by a stealthy helicopter? Nothing so dramatic; as Jeramy Kitchen reports Republican House Speaker Dade Phelan simply gave the Democrat permission to leave.

    That, of course, is despite the “call of the House” requiring all members to be present on the chamber’s floor at all times.

    Yet folks watching the slow-motion train wreck of the Phelan speakership know that hasn’t been the case. In fact, Speaker Phelan has made a big show of issuing color-coded permission slips letting all the House members – Democrats included – simply come and go. (For example, yesterday’s was announced as Texas topaz blue.)

    By the way, Mr. Cortez was appointed by Phelan to serve as chairman of the House Urban Affairs Committee – a position Cortez still holds.

    …And Then Signed An Arrest Warrant

    If all that isn’t frustrating enough, imagine the surprise Cortez got when Phelan – under increasing pressure from voters and conservative lawmakers – issued an arrest warrant for the San Antonio Democrat.

    Of course, Phelan waited to issue the warrant until after Cortez was (safely) back in D.C. – and the warrant was specifically written to have no effect outside Texas.

    Interestingly, no other arrest warrants have been issued for the obstructionist Democrats; only for Cortez. Last week, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott had declared on live TV that Democrats returning to Texas “will be arrested” – but none have been.

    And, yes, Cortez is still a committee chair.

    Abbott Border Wall… Is A Fence

    A month after Gov. Greg Abbott said he was ordering the construction of a border wall with Mexico, retired U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Victor Avila and citizen Al Zito tell Texas Scorecard’s Robert Montoya that the wall is just a chain-link fence.

    “The fence won’t deter any illegals from entering,” said Avila. “We could not believe that [Gov.] Abbott is thinking that a chain-link fence is going to replace a wall-type fence that was originally planned and was being built by [former President Donald] Trump.”

    “These people cut through fences like this like it’s butter,” added Zito. “While any fence is going to be a deterrent, a chain-link fence is basically useless and a waste of taxpayer money.”

    Mr. Huckabee,

    There's a good video on YouTube from Officer Brandon Tatum regarding the viral video of a police officer "planting" evidence in an automobile during a traffic stop in Caledonia, Wisconsin. It's certainly worth a watch as Mr. Tatum walks you through the video. For the record, evidently the driver of the car was speeding at 63 mph in a 45 mph zone.

    I just read that Rev. Billy Grahams grandson is in the hospital in critical condition with covid. I hope everyone will pray for him. I also read that the clown currently occupying the oval office has offered the contractor 2billion of our tax dollars not to build the wall. I am praying that the contractor will turn that down. I also pray daily that some of these evil corrupt people will be brought to justice. I do not understand how people like Hunter Biden are still walking around free. It seems only law abiding conservative citizens are arrested and most of those have committed no crime. What is happening to this country.

    regarding the CDC's latest ukase, isn't it interesting that just before that institution issued its ruling on this covid-testing company, Bill Gates and George Soros bought up another covid-testing company, I believe in the UK. Could it be that some people get insider tips and the rest of us don't?

    Governor Huckabee, where does the current state of our country take us, with law, political and media disorder, low intellectual, unethical leadership, a large body of crooked, unhinged, politically driven, frighteningly powerful, unelected officials?
