Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

Matthew 7:12 KJV


"Word Salad"

By Mike Huckabee

This is an excellent op-ed by Emily Berning, president of Let Them Live, a pro-life nonprofit that helps support pregnant women who choose life. It’s about the Supreme Court’s decision to hear an appeal of a lower court’s striking down of Mississippi’s late-term abortion ban.

Ms. Berning reminds us that while this is a hopeful sign that the Court might side with ending this barbaric practice, we’ve been here before with other cases and were left disappointed. It’s also a timely reminder that restoring respect for the lives of the unborn isn’t something that can spring from passing a law or scoring a court victory. It takes winning over hearts and minds, and letting vulnerable women know that before they exercise that euphemistic “right to choose,” there is a much better choice that they could make – to choose life -- and people who will help them if they make it.

A Better Understanding Of Covid Figures

By Mike Huckabee

This is an interesting article that cites several recent stories to build an argument that the panic over COVID-19 was unwarranted and based on manipulated and unproven assumptions.

These stories are new and revelatory, like the admission that COVID deaths in Alameda County, California, were overstated by 25% and that pediatric hospitalizations were inflated by at least 40% in California (and there’s no reason to think that was isolated to just one state.) But longtime readers of this newsletter probably won’t be too surprised. Throughout the pandemic, I’ve urged people to err on the side of caution, and acknowledged that COVID was a serious disease, while still acknowledging that we knew certain people were most likely to be vulnerable, yet we shut down the entire country instead of protecting those most likely to suffer serious harm.

I also repeatedly reminded readers that dying OF the coronavirus and dying WITH the coronavirus were not the same thing. But when the government gives hospitals a financial incentive to say someone died of COVID, it’s not hard to imagine that soon, everyone who dies of anything, but who happened to pick up the virus in the hospital, was likely to be chalked up as a COVID fatality, even if they died of gunshot wounds or in a motorcycle accident (yes, those actually happened.)

Biden Handed Putin A Stick To Whack Him With

By Mike Huckabee

This is a good example of why, when you are entrusted with power, you shouldn’t squander that trust for political reasons. It undermines your ability to take principled stands when people know your own principles are less than solid:

President Biden, on behalf of the US, joined with the European Union in condemning the arrest of dissident blogger Roman Protasevich, who had for months supported and encouraged protests of Belarus’ autocratic leader, Alexandr Lukashenko. After his arrest, Protasevich appeared on TV to recant his previous views and voice support and praise for Lukashenko, leading many to believe he’d been tortured or coerced. Of course, Biden was right to condemn his arrest.

But that gave Russian President Vladimir Putin an opening to remind the world that Biden’s DOJ is prosecuting everyone who entered the Capitol on January 6th, even those not accused of doing anything violent. Putin said, “These are not looters or thieves, these people came with political requests,” and Biden is trying to jail them for protesting what they believed to be corrupt actions by the government. And as the linked story reminds us, the government has used social media and other surveillance state methods to track down those people and jail them, while letting leftist protesters who actually did commit violence and vandalism of government property go free.

I’m from the “two wrongs don’t make a right” school, so I’m not going to dismiss what happened in Belarus or let the violent Capitol protesters off the hook. But Biden did hand Putin the stick to whack him with through his and his party’s own hypocritical double standard on anti-government protests (great when we protest the other side, treason and insurrection when they protest us.) I want our President to be able to take firm moral stands in the world, but first, he has to behave in a way that gives him a leg to stand on.

New Poll Reveals Squandered Trust

By Mike Huckabee

Speaking of authority figures who squander the public trust, a new Gallup Poll finds that the numbers of Americans who are continuing to wear masks or social distance are sharply down, and that includes people who are only partially vaccinated or who don’t plan to get vaccinated.

The Lincoln Project Defames The Heroes Of D-Day

By Mike Huckabee

The anti-Trump group the Lincoln Project, which defames Abe Lincoln with each mention of its name, also defamed the heroes of D-Day by comparing them to the equally misnamed Antifa (that stands for “anti-fascist,” even though they actually use fascist methods to attack anyone who disagrees with their radical ideology and falsely brand them “fascists.”)

To his everlasting shame, Brian Williams on MSNBC actually devoted some of his airtime to promoting this slanderous propaganda.

It was so jaw-droppingly outrageous that the website, which chronicles stories that sound like the Babylon Bee but are actually true, wrote it up:

I recommend as a must-read, to keep this ridiculous claim from ever taking root in your brain, this write-up from Instapundit, which includes the real history of the Antifa movement that started in Germany in the early 1930s.

Even then, they were a misleadingly named group of communist radicals whose primary goal was to destroy capitalism and who defined all other pro-capitalist parties in Germany as “fascists” so they could claim to be fighting fascism. In that regard, at least, the current Antifa does resemble some people who were around decades ago, but certainly not the heroes of D-Day.

Be Careful Of What You Say In Private Emails

By Mike Huckabee

Like Dr. Fauci, here's yet another lesson in being careful what you say in what you think are private emails:

New York’s schools are in the forefront of pushing Critical Race Theory indoctrination of children to help create a society in which people are branded as guilty of the thought crime of racism just for the color of their skin. But now, an award-winning teacher who was terminated for whistleblowing has produced a cache of emails written by other New York teachers and the head of their union. Take a guess who was engaging in actual crimes and real racist and anti-Semitic rhetoric (you might be interested to learn how Jews are to blame for the teachers refusing to go back to work.)

No wonder these leftist teachers want to declare everyone guilty of racism. It makes it harder to spot the real racists in the crowd.

News You Can Use

By Mike Huckabee

The conservative think tank Citizens for Renewing America has created a 33-page “A to Z” handbook to help parents stop Critical Race Theory indoctrination in their kids’ schools and hold school board members accountable. Here’s more about it, and the entire handbook in a PDF that you can download or print.

A Reader Writes Back... 

I am just wondering if you ever sleep. First thing in my morning I have your morning edition and last thing before I go to bed, there is your evening edition. Definitely my first go to for scan and summary of important issues, along with links if I want to dig deeper. Keep it up. But get some sleep too.

    I've been told that in at least one hospital in the Philippines, almost all deaths are recorded as covid deaths because the hospital gets more money that way. My contact had a relative that died of a heart attack and had to argue with the hospital that wanted to record it as covid. I don't think reported figures are reliable.

    I hope the crew packed a lot of depends for biden when he goes face to face with foreign leaders they all know that biden is a coward and will play with him till they make biden give them what they want. biden may try and play tough the others know what he is made of, mush. I hope putin doesn't make any quick motion while close to biden as the call for a clean up and fresh depends will be needed. biden will be exhausted when he arrives and will have no idea what he will give away maybe another pipeline or another free pass to hack in to what ever industry putin wishes. What a President and his VP was a real beauty also.

    Your newsletter took me an hour to read--I read all the blue sites you suggested--wow you are such a good educator! I mean that knowing full well; your political career. The information on the teacher's union and what's happening in NY education hit a nerve with me. I started out as a public school teacher, was recruited to teach in Ca. in the 60's when they had a teachers shortest. I left public school teaching when prayer was taken out of our schools and when unions were starting. Unions can be helpful but always seem to end up corrupted; but I believe parents in every state need to ask for education reform. They need to become active members of PTA, elect officials who understand education principles and elect state school officials who answer to them. State curriculums need an over haul. To keep good teachers who want to educate students to live in a Democratic Republic, education reform must begin in our teacher colleges. There are good teachers' colleges in our country but they need our help and support.
    Thanks for a very informative newsletter. Blessing to you and your stuff.

    As a 19 year old I had an abortion, with my mother and boyfriend working together to make sure it occurred. It has broken my heart for decades, and yet I realized if I had not given myself away to him it would have never happened and my guilt wouldn't be here today.
    I believe this is the message we need to tell our girls and granddaughters so they will not go through life with broken hearts. There were no ultrasounds when I had the abortion.
    Today you can see with no question the child is a baby within weeks of fertilization. We have no excuse for abortion at this time in history.
    Thank you governor for allowing me to have a voice in this discussion.

    I think it may be too much to expect President Biden to govern morally In regards to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness since morality isn’t the foundation on which he’s built his house of self-worship. To expect morality may lead to our continual disappointment.
