DAILY BIBLE VERSE
3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
By Mike Huckabee
Tweet of the Day! The New York Times, which seems to believe that Donald Trump is irredeemably evil, ran a book review designed to give us a more nuanced view of the late terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden. It looked at him from the aspect of his role as a “devoted family man.”
That was beyond the pale for Robert O’Neill, the former Navy SEAL who fired the shot that dispatched bin Laden. He tweeted to the Times, "Family man. He used his wife as a human shield. Lucky for me he was taller than her."
No vote fraud? Let's look at Harris County, Texas
By Mike Huckabee
A big name in Texas Democrat politics, Gerry Monroe, is reportedly “blowing the lid off” the story of massive voter fraud in Harris County.. That’s the Houston metropolitan area, the third largest voting county in America with about 2.5 million voters. Monroe is set to be interviewed at 11AM Eastern Thursday on NATIONAL FILE TV.
They say it’s to be shown live on Twitter, but does Twitter know about this? I’m surprised that anything about voter fraud wouldn’t be censored by them. Guess we’ll find out.
Another operative, Democrat strategist Damien Thaddeum Jones, who worked as a regional director for the “Beto” O’Rourke campaign, came forward in October 2020 to blow the whistle on what NATIONAL FILE describes as a “massive voter fraud ring” in Harris County. They obtained audio from him giving details on the work for Biden by alleged ringleader Dallas Jones. Jones was fired by the Biden campaign after he was implicated in an illegal ballot harvesting operation in sworn affidavits.
It should be noted that Democrats took complete control of Harris County in 2018 when they won offices by a 200,000-vote margin, although I’m not sure if I should be putting quotation marks around the word “vote.”
The Gerry Monroe interview is the latest development in a story that’s been emerging since last year. Much has been uncovered by the 20 (!) private investigators who have been on the case. NATIONAL FILE breaks down what happened in the 2020 election during the weeks of early, “24-hour” voting to sway the results.
The Biden campaign had hired Dallas Jones to run his campaign in Texas. And though vote harvesting is a second-degree felony under the Texas Election Code, that operation allegedly had “scores” of paid vote harvesters working for them. Audio recordings suggest that identities of both living and dead people were stolen, with a convicted forger named Gloria Palmer working as a paid campaign assistant in Sheila Jackson Lee’s office, mailing the fraudulent ballot applications in Jackson’s district. Campaign insiders allege that Jones oversaw the operation and that he was interrogated by the FBI in the weeks approaching the 2020 campaign.
Vote harvesters would go door-to-door in poor neighborhoods, often dressed to look like U.S. Census workers, and would often ply their trade at nursing homes and homeless centers, where the staff would be complicit. They would “hold” ballots to be forged by volunteers and then mailed. There’s also detailed testimony and evidence from a 30-year black police officer named Raymond T. Stewart who, while serving as a poll watcher, “saw the election judge use a table full of IDs to vote unregistered people that were voting by drive-through.”
This is a criminal act, but according to NATIONAL FILE, the local district attorney “did not even want to entertain our criminal complaint.” So the evidence has been sent on to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s office.
In these audio recordings, people find out that they or their dead relatives “voted,” to their surprise.
The decision by Harris County’s Democrat county clerk, Chris Hollins, to institute drive-through voting with no reason required was a violation of the Texas Election Code. He committed another violation by independently mailing ballots to everyone 65 and older. At least he was stopped by the Texas Supreme Court before he could send a ballot to every name on the voter rolls, which had not been updated since 2016.
The NATIONAL FILE story is quite long and detailed and includes the sworn testimony of several other poll watchers. Former FBI investigative specialist Charles F. Marler said he was tipped to the ballot harvesting by two witnesses in December of 2019. This is hearsay, but Marler testified he’d been told that one employee named Tyler James had bragged that the operation, with the help of mass mail-in balloting, “could harvest 700,000 illegal ballots.”
We can thank citizen journalist Colleen Vera of TEXAS TRASH TALK for updates concerning Sheila Jackson Lee’s campaign office and the two convicted forgers who were getting paid. Vera’s report --- included in the NATIONAL FILE story --- makes very interesting reading. For example, she found that 32 handwritten requests for ballots, all purported to be from different voters, were in the exact same handwriting and returned in identical pre-printed envelopes with the same stamp. Even more stunning: all these “voters” happened in Precinct #259, all voted for the same candidates, and all signed with an “X.”
What are the odds? Yet additional research showed the same thing had happened in Precinct #259 every year going back to 2008.
In Vera’s words, What has been uncovered is a group of masterminds wanting to destroy the Texas voting voice.”
It sure looks like there’s a whole lotta cheatin’ goin’ on. And it would make sense that Harris County is a key spot to be doing it, just like Maricopa County (Phoenix) and Fulton County (Atlanta). Maybe it’s the most prime of all. Increasingly, as Harris County goes, so goes Texas, and as Texas goes, so goes America. If the Democrats can steal Texas, it’s all over. So it should surprise no one that if there’s coordinated voter fraud going on in large counties, this has got to be one of the hotbeds.
7,000 border-crossers test positive for Covid in McAllen, TX
By Mike Huckabee
I wish we’d had this new information from the NEW YORK POST in time for yesterday's update on the flood of COVID-infected “noncitizens” –- illegals –- at the Texas border. (That story: the DOJ sued and obtained a temporary injunction against Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s order that curbed the federal government’s transportation of migrants from the border into Texas and beyond.) But here it is.
Nearly 7,000 immigrants who tested positive for COVID-19 --- out of the ones who WERE tested --- have passed through McAllen, Texas, including more than 1,500 in just the past seven days.
It wasn’t a big announcement, just one that was folded into a statement from the City of McAllen, population 140,000, announcing the construction of emergency shelters to help them cope with the overwhelming numbers of immigrants. On Monday, the buses Gov. Abbott is trying to stop were running constantly, dropping off passengers at a downtown Catholic charity every 30 minutes throughout the day. McAllen has declared a state of disaster.
According to this story, July marked the highest number of illegal immigrants apprehended at the US-Mexico border in more than 20 years.
On Wednesday afternoon, a crash occurred about 50 miles north of McAllen on a remote Texas highway when a van carrying 25 people (!) --- but designed to carry no more than 15 --- turned over on a curve, killing 11 people and injuring at least a dozen others.
Migrants continue to pour in, as Gov. Abbot has been ordered not to interfere, at least for now. After the temporary halt to his order, a spokesperson for his office said, “The governor’s Executive Order attempts to prevent the Biden administration from spreading COVID-19 into Texas and protect the health and safety of Texans.” The next hearing is scheduled for August 13.
Abbott’s spokesperson also said this: “The Biden administration has knowingly --- and willingly --- released COVID-19 positive migrants into Texas communities, risking the potential exposure and infection of Texas residents.”
And this brings us to what Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said on Wednesday to President Biden, which is absolutely what needed to be said. Watch and learn; this is EXACTLY the way all Republicans need to fight back against the politics-driven idiocy being inflicted on our country right now by those in power. It makes no sense to talk about lockdowns when you’re allowing COVID-infected “noncitizens” to stream into the country as Biden is.
Biden had admonished Govs. DeSantis and Abbott for not doing “the right thing” to fight COVID. “Look, we need leadership from everyone,” he said. “If some governors aren’t willing to do the right thing to beat this pandemic, they should allow businesses and universities who want to do the right thing to be able to do it.” Rational people are more at risk from busting a gut laughing at lines like this from Biden than they are from the coronavirus. I wonder how many infected people crossed into America at our southern border while Biden was giving his little speech.
DeSantis’ stand-up-and-cheer response to President Biden: “Why don’t you do your job? Why don’t you get this border secure? And until you do that, I don’t want to hear a blip about COVID from you, thank you.”
DeSantis also appeared briefly on THE INGRAHAM ANGLE with Laura Ingraham Wednesday to talk about personal decisions regarding COVID, particularly regarding parents on issues that affect their kids, such as mask-wearing in school. He pointed out that last year, school districts in Florida that didn’t institute compulsory mask-wearing had lower rates of infection than those that did.

MUST-SEE VIDEO! The conservative satire site The Babylon Bee is branching out into music videos with this brilliant parody of “Imagine,” a song that even John Lennon admitted was virtually “The Communist Manifesto” set to music. Now, it really is.
And as long as we’re talking about the Babylon Bee, here’s their take on the Andrew Cuomo story:

Nice Bit of Wordsmithing
By Mike Huckabee
Real Clear Politics White House correspondent Susan Crabtree Hennebury wrote a series of tweets outlining the DC Democrats’ desperation at realizing the bind they’re in as the 2022 elections approach. They want to pass another massive spending bill in hopes that handing out more money will get them reelected. However, nearly 6 in 10 voters are worried about rising inflation and blame Biden and the Democrats’ profligate spending for fueling it. So the Dems want to blow more money to get votes, but fear doing so will cost them votes. She dubbed this their “Catch-2022.”
I wish I could help them, but I’d just suggest they only spend money that’s necessary for the long term good of the entire nation and stop focusing entirely on getting reelected, so why would they listen to me?
Dishonest Democrats Push For 1619 Narrative
By Mike Huckabee
This is a terrific article by Mark Hemingway at Real Clear Investigations, making the case that Democrats who claim they are being more honest about American history by pushing “The 1619 Project” narrative of this nation being built on racism are actually being dishonest, hypocritical and lying about history. That’s because even as they point at racist institutions such as slavery or Jim Crow laws, and racist historic figures from Andrew Jackson to Confederate Generals, they’re trying to cover up the fact that the people were all Democrats and the racist institutions were invented and defended by Democrats.

UPDATE! Remember the story from Politico about the new Trump-friendly, free speech-protecting social media site GETTR being plagued with violent Islamic extremists posts? Well, here are a few things that Politico left out:
GETTR responded that it has a robust and proactive system for identifying and eliminating prohibited content while protecting political free speech…Big tech giants like Twitter have their own problems with failing to take down Islamic extremist posts…and the negative info about GETTR in the story came from an organization that’s funded by Facebook, Google, YouTube and other Big Tech competitors who might be threatened by GETTR’s rapid growth.
