Proverbs 3:5


Garland's Justice Department

By Mike Huckabee

The only good thing I can say about Attorney General Merrick Garland and his stewardship of the Biden “Justice” Department is that at least he’s not a Supreme Court Justice. During his brief time in office, he’s obliterated any sense of the DOJ as a fair and impartial arbiter of laws and the Constitution and is rapidly turning it into the kind of politicized enforcement arm of the President that we normally see in banana republics.

Here are just a few recent stories out of the DOJ:

They’re threatening states that conduct ballot audits…

They’re threatening states that pass laws to safeguard election integrity…

https://www.westernjournal.com/bidens-doj-sets-stage-permanently-destroy-election-integrity-ensure-gop-never-wins/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

They’re suing Texas because Gov. Greg Abbott is trying to stop the feds from transporting COVID-positive illegal immigrants around the state. Imagine if this Administration went to this much effort to keep COVID-positive illegal immigrants out in the first place...

They dropped charges against five suspected Chinese spies while hounding Trump supporters like Inspector Javert…

They declared vaccine mandates legal, even while admitting that some legal scholars say they’re not…

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/doj-vaccine-mandates-legal

And now (surprise!), the Biden DOJ has ordered the IRS to turn over former President Trump’s personal income tax records to his rabid haters in Congress for them to fish through.

https://www.westernjournal.com/bidens-doj-orders-irs-release-trumps-tax-returns/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

The DOJ memo said, “Executive Branch officials must apply a presumption that Legislative Branch officials act in good faith and in furtherance of legitimate objectives.”

So I’ll give Biden’s and Garland’s “Justice” Department this: they may no longer be providing justice, but at least they’re trying to give us some much-needed laughter.


Vaccine Talk

By Mike Huckabee

The Biden White House is furious at the New York Times and the Washington Post for tweeting what they claim is false information about the risk of COVID infection among the vaccinated and their likelihood of spreading it. Details here:

https://www.foxnews.com/media/white-house-washington-post-new-york-times-covid-spread-vaccinated

Can I just point out that it’s no wonder the public is skeptical of government claims about COVID and vaccines? What does it say when the Administration’s messages are so mixed and confused that not even their court stenographers can get the official version straight?

Speaking of which…

https://reason.com/volokh/2021/07/30/white-house-walks-back-biden-statement-that-national-vaccine-mandate-is-under-consideration/

And Matt Taibbi shows how vaccine skepticism is not a new phenomenon but the latest manifestation of the long term out-of-touch arrogance and doubletalk of the elites.

News Correction

By Mike Huckabee

CORRECTION: We recently commented on a report that the CDC was revoking emergency use authorization for a particular test for COVID because it couldn’t differentiate between the COVID virus and influenza. It turns out that’s inaccurate (that test can differentiate but was withdrawn for different reasons.) Although it is true, as I said, that the initial story had a lot of people questioning whether the original COVID case numbers were accurate, but the CDC says they are. You can read full details at this fact-check article by Kaiser Health News.

https://khn.org/news/article/fact-check-cdc-pcr-covid-test-distinguishes-from-flu-eua-request-withdrawal/

On a side note, I don’t know why the writers saw fit to single me out, as if we were a source of this story, which had been widely distributed long before we touched on it. In fact, that’s the only reason we posted a brief mention of it: it was already all over the place.

As we have repeatedly made clear, in most cases, we aren’t an original news source site, we’re an aggregator/commentary site. We try hard to find multiple reliable sources for stories, but those are increasingly hard to come by in the age of social media and blatantly politicized news. Our original story even linked directly to the CDC website, so if it was incorrect, all they had to do was add a correction to that page. We may be the first people accused of spreading misinformation by linking to the CDC’s own website.

We have no interest in spreading misinformation, and if something we comment on later turns out to be inaccurate, we always run a correction, as you see here. How many original source news outlets – or for that matter, fact-checker sites – do that?


Insightful Letter From Reader

By Mike Huckabee

Thanks to all who wrote concerning the story of the father whose son has been "detained" for months after the Capitol breach and our follow-up concerning a letter critical of the dad. Here's one we found particularly insightful and would like to highlight, from Terry...

Dear Gov. Huckabee:

First of all, I am extremely grateful for your daily newsletters, which are a primary source of news for me, as well as for your TV show that provides a variety unmatched in that medium.

I'm moved to write concerning what is being said about the events of January 6 by people on both ends of the spectrum who seemingly value inflammatory hyperbole over rational discussion of what actually happened. Your own remarks have consistently been even-handed and well thought out, it seems to me.

Conservatives are wearily accustomed to the distortions and outright falsehoods voiced by people like the chair of the Joint Chiefs and the Capitol Police officer who testified this week before the House committee. As onerous as those remarks are to us, some statements I've seen in your reader comments bother me almost as much. They amount to heaping fuel on the fire that the left wants to keep burning. The criticism leveled at the letter from the detainee's father was to me excessive and uncalled for.

Believing in an unrealistic and idealized view of Jan 6 is certainly their prerogative, but conservatives who do so need to realize the grave harm still being done to the movement they purport to represent.

This response is somewhat lengthy I know so I will end here. Once again, thanks for providing a forum for rational discussion.

Terry Allen

Pekin, IL

Dear Terry:

Thank you so much for writing. This is a point we've been trying to make ever since the event took place. It's easy to understand why Trump supporters were fed up --- especially after even the Supreme Court refused to look at evidence --- and why some of them were ready to blow and desperately wanted to make a statement, but to understand this is not the same as approving of it or defending it.

The way they chose to make their statement caused tremendous long-term harm to conservatives, by playing right into the left's hands. We should know by now how the left will twist whatever they can to further their own narrative, which in this case was that Trump supporters are crazy right-wing "insurrectionists" who want to "subvert democracy." Conservatives attended that rally because they want to PROTECT democracy. Think that case ended up being made? No, it did not.

Letters such as yours might help more conservatives see that we have to not just fight, but FIGHT SMART. Thanks again.

Here’s the actual data from a COVID outbreak in Provincetown, Massachusetts, that has our leaders wanting to force us all back into masks and possibly close down schools again. Read it for yourself and see if you think this really justifies all the panic.

The Big Wheel Of Racism

By Mike Huckabee

It’s the weekend so why not give two spins to the Big Wheel of Random Racism? Today, it stops…on…The Second Amendment! Yes, the Second Amendment is now racist!

https://www.foxnews.com/media/colion-noir-aclu-second-amendment-racist

And spinning again, it stops…on…pit bull terriers! If you’re afraid of pit bulls, you might be racist.

https://www.theblaze.com/news/fear-of-pit-bulls-racism

Question: If your pit bull hates cats, does that make it racist or speciesist?

    With all this LGBTQZXYVOPDEM controversy why not build or assign separate wash room facilities so that we would have three (3) distinct areas 'MEN' 'WOMEN' & 'LGBTQZXYVOPDEM'

    I have never been one for conspiracy theories, but I am afraid this administration’s dealings with China, and quite possibly, Russia do not pass the smell test. The people who broke onto the .Capitol should be punished, but no bail, and solitary, with the possibility of physical abuse, is such overkill that it smacks of the sort of thing Putin, or China does to people. Ignoring Hunter Biden’s dealings with China, the Ukraine, and Russia with overwhelming evidence of suspicious actions, is just plain wrong by all standards of decency. Closing the investigations of the five
    Chinese is so outré that one would have to be pretty dumb to ignore the implications. The selling of Hunter’s amateur paintings for prices near to those of some of the great artists is so wild, how can one not think the purchasers are buying influence? It was the same with the Clintons and the Foundation, as well as the obscene payments for 20 minute speeches. The moral is that they don’t have any. I don’t believe the President actually comprehends the finer points, or even many of the major points for that matter, as he is just doing what his advisors, Schumer, and Pelosi tell him. Speaking of morals, I know a number
    “ good Catholics” and they would never behave as do Biden and Pelosi. I hope those January 6 Trump supporters realize they may have cost the GOP the next election. The hearings might make good humorous fiction.
    Once again, thanks to you and your staff for being one of the few in the media to be truthful and conscientious without the drama.

    Another informative morning edition, Gov! "....Biden’s and Garland’s “Justice” Department...."

    The question should be, WHY? Why hasn't any of those "Constitutional Judges" seated by President Trump put a STOP sign up to much of what these insidious 'Anti-Constitution' political whacks proffer?? Every time President Trump attempted to do something designed to 'help' America or its people, but Democrats hated, there was a ready cockroach Liberal Judge to delay, obfuscate, and/or dismantle the process through their "Judicial Oversight!!" C'mon you 'conservative' judges get in the fight, c'mon man!

    Gov. Huckabee. I want to comment on you show last night on TBN. I watch faithfully, but I think you did a disservice to your Christian viewers by having only one side of the covid vaccine issue presented. People are dying because of this vaccine. I think you should have the Frontline Doctors on to present the negative side if the covid vaccine controversy. Besides that, the government has NO RIGHT to try to force people to take a vaccine, NOT FOR ANYTHING OR ANYBODY. And let's not forget that aborted baby tissue was used to formulate the vaccines. One of them even had aborted baby string in the final product. What good Christian would want that vaccine in their body? You owe your viewers the whole truth about the covid vaccines, how they were formulated, the risks that people take when they take the vaccine, & the fact the U.S. government has sunk so low as to try to force people to take the jab, while all the while letting in hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens carrying covid & shipping them to all parts of our country. Your viewers deserve to know the whole truth about the covid vaccines.

    I'm glad you and Terry Allen weren't around when Republicans were fighting AGAINST Slavery and FOR Civil Rights.
    And why haven't Antifa and BLM done damage to the Blue Reich?
    Didn't MLK go to jail?
    I support the Jan 6 Protesters NO REGRETS.
    The Fight is on and I'm in.

    Every conservative news channel and every conservative news writer should daily use one word when it comes to addressing the Democrats and all that is going on. The word is INTENTIONAL or intentionally. From day one of this illegitimate fraudulent phony (Biden) administration ( being ran by Obama, Soros and others) have destroyed our economy, opened the southern border, implemented one mandate after another, eroded our Constitution, and the list goes on and on . . . . they have done so INTENTIONALLY !! This and more to follow is all part of their agenda. Too many people (sheeple) are going along with the evil Democrats agenda. Too many people going along and putting their hope in 2022 & 2024, yet know fully well the issues of the stolen and rigged election were not properly addressed and the Democrats fully INTEND on stealing future elections. Why wouldn't they, they got away with it- all evidence dismissed, the worthless politicized SCOTUS not interested, Republicans doing nothing and the Swamp only gets deeper. Now I don't promote violence, but I truly don't see how all that is going on will only be solved by another American Revolution. Good thing our true Patriots from the American Revolution didn't just come to the conclusion that we might as well just come under control of the British. Will We the People just decide to come under complete control of our new Democrat-Socialist party ? Sure starting to look that way because no one seems to have any fight or resolve left in them, but just want to sit back and whine and cry what China Joe and all his cronies are doing to us and our nation. Time will tell if there is actually enough good men and women left to not allow evil to prosper!!

    "at least he’s not a Supreme Court Justice" - AMEN !!!!!!

    WHERE are the Covid-ridden ILLEGALS going? Could they be deliberately sent to red states [e.g. Florida] to increase the Covid infections there?

    I can now believe biden's approval rating is about 50% being around people indicates this country has millions and millions of people that can not read or write and the teachers union is making sure the numbers continues to rise. Illiterate people is the main goal of the teachers union is for teachers to keep children from being able to read. Communists hate people that can read and make choices that will enhance a comfortable lifestyle. I hope the education suburban women had received is nonsense and a waste of money as the budget has become harder to manage as the newly"elected" president is bringing welfare disease crime to your block in the suburbs The lack of respect one has for itself should not be used to sacrifice your childrens chance at freedom and a safe and good lifestyle suburban women cast your education aside and become true American so your children can survive.

Closed the borders for Canada but not the Southerner borders ? Let every one in except Cubans?? I agree with President Trump waiting until 2022, will be to late. God help us all.
