DAILY BIBLE VERSE

But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.

James 1:6


World Series teams are set

By Mike Huckabee

I’m not a huge baseball fan, but I can’t tell you how happy I am to report which teams will be in the World Series.

Major League Baseball yanked the All-Star Game out of Atlanta to protest Georgia's new election integrity law. They didn’t seem to care that it was less restrictive than those in other states (including Joe Biden's home state of Delaware) or that they cheated Atlanta residents and businesses (many of them black and black-owned) out of $100 million in revenues.

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/rebeccadowns/2021/10/24/mlb-moved-allstar-game-out-of-atlanta-over-voting-rights-now-the-atlanta-braves-are-in-the-world-series-n2597938

Well, they’ll have to eat crow and come crawling back because over the weekend, the Atlanta Braves made it to the World Series. And guess who they’ll be facing: the Houston Astros, from the state that also passed voter integrity laws (despite a delay from runaway, COVID-spreading Democrats) and a fetal heartbeat abortion ban that’s also sparking boycott cries from the left.

That means that the first two games of the World Series will be Tuesday and Wednesday in Houston, then Friday and Saturday in Atlanta. If it goes to seven games, the next three will be in Atlanta, Houston and Houston. The virtue-signaling MLB executives will have no choice but to do what so many people from liberal blue states are doing these days: go to Georgia and Texas.

WSJ: Facebook employees try to suppress conservatives

By Mike Huckabee

I’m sure this will come as no surprise to you, but the Wall Street Journal reports that Facebook employees try to suppress conservative posts and deplatform conservative media outlets.

https://redstate.com/nick-arama/2021/10/24/wsj-report-facebook-employees-tried-to-suppress-conservative-content-n462862

I know that sounds like old news, but thanks to a whistleblower releasing internal communications, there are reportedly some bombshell revelations coming this week about how leftist Facebook employees ignore their managers and take it on themselves to censor political views they disagree with. One target was Breitbart News, which Facebook employees allegedly suppressed because of a drop in public trust. But a senior researcher replied that if Facebook removed news outlets because of a drop in public trust, they would have kicked CNN off two years ago (only two?)

Stay tuned for more this week, and there could be even more coming after that. Facebook, Twitter and Google sued Texas for passing a law barring them from removing conservative viewpoints. But a federal judge just ruled that the case can proceed and granted the state limited discovery to see internal documents on how all three moderate content.

Know what would have been much less expensive than all these attorney fees? Free speech.

Bipartisan fury

By Mike Huckabee

Dr. Anthony Fauci is facing bipartisan fury and the hashtag @ArrestFauci is trending after it was reported that under his leadership, the NIH gave $400,000 in funding for medical experiments in which beagle puppies endured months of horrific, torturous treatment, then were killed. I don't even want to describe what was done to them, so I warn you to click the link at your own risk.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/arrestfauci-trends-twitter-doctor-faces-criticism-controversial-virus-research-testing-dogs

As a dog lover, I’m as outraged as anyone else, probably more so than most. But I find it interesting that the media and Democrats (pardon my redundancy) have treated Fauci as some kind of godlike figure, defending him even after he’s flip-flopped numerous times on COVID advice; advocated for endless lockdowns, separating families and canceling holidays; pushed for vaccine mandates and vaccinating kids when many think the vaccines are riskier to them than the disease; and lied to Congress about funding gain-of-function research that some suspect might even have led to the creation of COVID-19.

They closed their eyes and ears to all of that…but when they learned his agency funded puppy torture, that’s beyond the pale.

My question is, do they really love dogs that much or have they just realized, as many of us did long ago, that Fauci needs to go and this is the best justification they can find for climbing out of their entrenched position?


UPDATE on Alec Baldwin story

By Mike Huckabee

As the investigation into the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins by Alec Baldwin on the set of the movie “Rust” continues, here are some of the latest developments (note that this is from media reports; the official investigation results have not yet been made public):

Fox News obtained information on how the shooting happened from the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Department. The sad details are here:

https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/alec-baldwin-accidental-shooting-details-halyna-hutchins-death

It’s been reported that it was not a “prop gun” but a real gun that the crew had recently used for target shooting. There was also a report that live ammo had been kept near where the blanks were kept, and that a live round was in the gun when it was given to Baldwin without his knowledge. That bullet passed through Hutchins’ body and struck director Joel Souza, who is now out of the hospital.

It was also reported that the person in charge of the movie’s weapons had previously been cited for safety violations on another production.

https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/alec-baldwin-prop-gun-crew-member-safety-complaint

There was also an accusation that on a previous production, one of the people in charge of the gun for the “Rust” shoot had loaded a prop gun on the ground with gravel around and handed it to a child actress. Other crew members were concerned and took the gun away to make sure nothing had lodged inside the barrel.

Here are two articles on whether Baldwin might face criminal or civil liability.

https://www.westernjournal.com/baldwin-face-negligent-manslaughter-charges-fatal-shot/

https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/alec-baldwin-shooting-civil-criminal-liabilities-jonathan-turley

Finally, Kurt Schlichter wrestles with the question of whether to take the high road in dealing with this story or use it to attack Alec Baldwin just as harshly as he would have attacked any conservative who was in the same position he’s now in.

https://townhall.com/columnists/kurtschlichter/2021/10/25/the-alec-baldwin-conundrum-n2597927?utm_campaign=rightrailsticky2

This story has many people in Hollywood demanding stricter standards for handling prop guns and the people who are in charge of ensuring they’re safe. It would be ironic if, just as producers must have a tutor on set if there are child actors and an SPCA monitor if there are animals, they would be required to have an NRA member on set to make sure they’re handling guns safely.

SPECIAL COUNSEL UPDATE: Durham's investigation is expansive

By Mike Huckabee

Following George Stephanopoulos’ laughable attempt last weekend to resuscitate Christopher Steele, multiple investigative reporters came out last week to further discredit Steele’s work and to analyze what Special Counsel John Durham revealed in his “speaking indictment” of Clinton attorney Michael Sussmann.

The Sephanopoulos/Steele interview aired by ABC "News" was actually part of an hour-long “documentary” produced for HULU called “OUT OF THE SHADOWS: The Man Behind the Steele Dossier.” I’ll just tell you right now, we have not been able to bring ourselves to watch. I know my slogan is, “We read the news so you don’t have to,” but neither I nor my staff can stand the idea of sitting through it. Life is too short, and there is too much real, serious investigation to keep up with.

So we should thank California Rep. Devin Nunes, who headed the House Intelligence Committee during their investigation of “Crossfire Hurricane,” for making himself watch the whole blasted thing, which he calls “entirely fiction.” For “ABC News to put out something like that is just bizarre,” he said, quipping that ABC should move their headquarters to Fantasyland at its parent company’s Walt Disney World.

https://justthenews.com/accountability/media/rep-devin-nunes-abc-news-hq-should-move-disneys-fantasyland-after-steele

Nunes suspects the media don’t really still believe what Steele said about Trump is true, but that “there’s something more nefarious going on.” He said he has “no idea, you know, what’s behind this –- the timing, the release of this. That anybody would be defending Steele or those dossiers...at this point is an absolute joke.”

He has confidence that Durham is doing “a real investigation,” but he’s concerned that it might not continue, “because we know DOJ is completely politicized.”

So, will Durham be able to continue looking into the FBI’s investigation (“investigation”) of the Clinton Foundation? During AG Merrick Garland’s cringeworthy testimony before the House Judiciary Committee last Thursday, he avoided saying. As part of his larger investigation of the FBI’s “Crossfire Hurricane,” Durham has been looking into whether donors to the Clinton Foundation got special treatment from then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/oct/21/garland-wont-say-whether-special-counsel-durham-st/

Garland was asked specifically if Durham would continue free of political influence, but he skirted that question. He did say that because budgetary provisions are public, we “would know if he weren’t continuing his work.” Hey, thanks, Mr. Attorney General!

John Solomon at JUST THE NEWS followed up in detail after the ABC interview, saying that Steele’s main source and even his friends undercut his claims of “professionalism.” Steele’s work was anything but.

https://justthenews.com/accountability/russia-and-ukraine-scandals/steeles-defense-dossier-collides-avalanche-evidence

Of course, we already knew that the FBI had had to terminate him as a “confidential human source” because he had leaked to the media. Some professionalism.

What’s especially interesting about this latest news from Solomon is that it sheds light on how much information came to Durham from the lawsuit filed against Steele by Alfa Bank, the financial institution wrongly implicated in that story of computer servers "pinging" between their offices and Trump Tower. (Alfa Bank prevailed in that lawsuit.) Steele’s own legal team gave statements in a London courtroom stressing that the dossier was not verified, that much of its information was not corroborated and that he suffered from “strong anti-Trump biases.”

“It is raw intelligence,” they said last year. “It is the basis for further investigation by the recipients. So to put the bar too high in terms of establishing accuracy at that stage would be quite wrong in principle.”

“We can say,” they also stated, “the critical consideration is that his confidential human intelligence was not factual evidence to be used in a personal or public report or in court or anything like that...It was raw intelligence to be passed on as part of a much bigger intelligence picture.”

Someone should have told that to then-CIA Director John Brennan, back when he was insisting the dossier be included in the intelligence agencies’ assessment of Trump’s so-called “Russia” connections. One wonders why he treated such an easily discredited piece of fiction as if it were the Dead Sea Scrolls.

And as for the “much bigger intelligence picture,” we know that, despite what Brennan has tried to claim, the dossier was the cornerstone for “Crossfire Hurricane.” The FBI would not have gotten the warrant to spy on Carter Page without it; in fact, they had been turned down for a similar warrant before.

Solomon’s commentary includes links to the pdf’s of relevant testimony from the Alfa Bank case. He’s got footnotes from our own intelligence community discrediting the dossier (Brennan obviously wasn’t listening). He’s even got pdf’s of the FBI’s notes from their interview with Steele’s primary sub-source, who called it “bar talk and gossip.”

Judicial Watch unearthed still more documents that undercut Steele. JW President Tom Fitton told JUST THE NEWS he was dismayed that ABC News would be lending credibility to the dossier now. “I was disappointed that ABC...gave him, you know, more time to spread this disinformation,” Fitton said. “...He’s been, in my view, thoroughly debunked by official and unofficial investigations, documents you’ve uncovered, we’ve uncovered, the IG has uncovered.”

Bruce Ohr at the Justice Department –- wife of Nellie Ohr who did research for Fusion GPS –- warned that it was unverified raw intelligence and that Steele seemed “desperate” to defeat Trump.

Even former National Security Council expert Fiona Hill –- remember her from Trump’s impeachment? –- who is the person who introduced Steele to his sub-source (thanks, Fiona!), dismissed the dossier as a “rabbit hole,” likely Russian disinformation mixed in with other information that might or night not have been true.

Solomon links to a pdf of a recently declassified FBI re-interview with Steele himself, along with business partner Christopher Burrows, acknowledging his anti-Trump bias in the fall of 2017. The FBI had to know good and well what they were dealing with.

Solomon links to much more –- he characterizes this as an “avalanche” –- that shows Steele and his work for exactly what they were. And yet when Steele sat down with Stephanopoulos, he admitted only that the dossier was not “100 percent” and defended it. It’s shameful that ABC “News” did this horrid piece of “journalism.”

As for Michael Sussmann, he’s not looking too impressive, either. Durham has filed an opposition to his motion for a bill of particulars, arguing that his 27-page “speaking indictment” more than adequately informs him of the charges he faces.

https://technofog.substack.com/p/john-durham-gears-up-against-the

TechnoFog has deciphered Durham’s reply and thinks subpoenas will be going to the DNC, the Hillary Campaign/Hillary for America, Georgia Tech University and the team of cyber experts working on the Alfa Bank hoax, Fusion GPS, and “numerous companies” involved with “Tech Executive – 1,” identified as Rodney Jaffe.

This and much more leads him to think the perpetrators in the Alfa Bank hoax will be charged and that the investigation is much more expansive. He brings up CrowdStrike as well –- referencing, in fact, the article at REAL CLEAR INVESTIGATIONS by Aaron Mate that we brought you a few days ago. A close look at CrowdStrike would “strike” at the heart of what the DNC was up to with the Russia Hoax.

For more on this, here’s a colorful piece from John Solomon.

Hymnal

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty

Listen: https://youtu.be/39tazCROrtU

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee;

holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty,

God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee,

casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;

cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,

who wert and art and evermore shalt be.

Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,

though the eye made blind by sin thy glory may not see,

only thou art holy; there is none beside thee,

perfect in power, in love, and purity.

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

All thy works shall praise thy name, in earth and sky and sea;

holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty,

God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

    Whether to take the high road in dealing with this story or use it to attack Alec Baldwin just as harshly as he would have attacked any conservative who was in the same position he’s now in?

    Absolutely do NOT take the "high road." Attack the - individual of undetermined maternal parentage - until he can't leave his own home for shame. Taking the "high road" and "turning the other cheek" for the past 20 years is what allowed these vitriolic, ignorant, entitled, Marxist radicals to seize near-unchallenged control of every level of our society. Drag Baldwin over every thorn and coal that you can. (I'd tell you what I think should be done with Fauci, as well, but if I did the FBI would definitely be knocking on my door). Sufficed to say, no more "playing nice." I'm sick of "nice." "Nice," spineless, milquetoast, surrendering, cowering "conservatism" leads to nothing but the incremental dissolution of our rights and individual liberties.
