September 14, 2018

The winds are blowing, and I don’t just mean Hurricane Florence.  These winds spell disaster for both the “deep state” strategists and the Democratic Party faithful –- in government and in media –- who have been conspiring and breaking laws left and right to keep Trump from exercising power.


There’s a change in the air, though I doubt you’ll get a sense of it over the airwaves if you watch CNN or MSNBC.  I usually don’t like to count my chickens before they come home to roost, but it does seem that all the effort Judicial Watch has made for many months, trying to pry documents out of the cold bureaucratic hands of the FBI, is finally reaping rewards.  A few undeterred reporters have also been on the case, too, for a long time, and the release of perhaps the most significant evidence of outright criminality appears to be happening at last.  Thankfully, as autumn approaches, the harvest season appears to have begun, as we’ve now had four days in a row of revealing messages from the texting “gap” of former FBI counterintelligence officer Peter Strzok and former FBI attorney Lisa Page.


We could get used to this.  Breakfast without new Strzok-Page texts is like a day without sunshine --- and you know sunshine is the best disinfectant.


The latest thing to come out is that FBI and other law enforcement officials have told reporter Sara A. Carter that some within their departments have been sending sensitive information via unsecured devices and email accounts, seriously jeopardizing national security.  Ironically, they were doing this while discussing how the U.S. could improve the sharing of sensitive data, in this case with the European Union top governing commission.  (Judicial Watch obtained these communications; details at the link below.)


Off the top of my head, I’d say that one way to improve the sharing of sensitive information would be to, I don’t know, stop sending it over non-secure channels.  This kind of “way in” is exactly what spies look for –- sometimes even kill for –- which is why Hillary Clinton had no business setting up her own non-secure server.  What she did was absolutely criminally negligent and created a serious security breach.  (It was obviously more important to her to safeguard any incriminating communications than it was to protect our national security.)  That’s why people who do this are supposed to go to jail, unless they are Hillary Clinton.


Commentary continues below advertisement

Of course, Hillary did much more, cavalierly destroying over 30,000 subpoenaed documents and even smashing equipment and otherwise disabling it so that information could not be retrieved.  This is called “obstruction of justice” –- the real deal, not what some are accusing Trump of doing simply for exercising his constitutional authority.  People who obstruct justice, especially on such a grand scale, are also supposed to go to jail and wear coordinated orange pantsuits.  They do not pass “GO,” they do not collect $200 (if you're a Clinton, $200,000).


It’s also very much illegal to leak to the media classified information, such as that pertaining to FISA warrants (very, very secret), which, because of the latest Strzok-Page texts, we know people within the FBI were doing.  Not only is this criminal, but, as attorney Joe diGenova said Thursday on FOX News, everyone involved in leaking the name of Carter Page, an American citizen, has massive civil liability.  Besides government employees, that may also include the media who published his name, because in doing so, they trafficked in classified information and smeared him at the same time.  “Carter Page is going to be a very wealthy man,” he said.


I like that idea.  Hey, wouldn’t it be great if Carter Page ended up owning the Washington Post and the New York Times?  It could only be a good thing for journalism.  


Let’s look at just a few of the other things we know for sure.  We know that the FBI, under the authority of the Obama Justice Department, fabricated evidence in the Trump/Russia “investigation,” with the Christopher Steele “dossier” being at the prime example and the FISA warrant applications being fine examples of lying-by-omission.  We know that then-FBI Director James Comey leaked information in order to get a special counsel appointed, because he admitted it.  We also know that the FBI was creating its own narrative by leaking false information to willing and eager accomplices at the Washington Post and the New York Times.  When their stories were picked up and spread through the media, Strzok and Page expressed their delight.


The fall’s rich harvest of evidence can be expedited –- and needs to be –- if President Trump will finally declassify all relevant documents, and some in-the-know are saying this will happen soon, maybe as early as next week.  After literally years of stonewalling by the FBI and DOJ --- while they leaked like a cardboard roof to their favored media outlets --- the time has come for the President to do it.  Mr. President, if you are reading this, you have to know that if the Democrats do manage to take control of Congress, they will shut down all ongoing congressional investigations faster than you can say “Mark Meadows.”  All of their work to expose the “deep state” bureaucrats who have so relentlessly attacked you and tried every scheme they could come up with to sabotage you at every turn will be for nothing.  We know at this point who was really making the massive effort to interfere with our presidential election, and it was THEM.  You simply must pull back the curtain –- now –- and expose what has been going on for years inside the federal bureaucracy.


If you’ve been thinking that U.S. Attorney John Huber, way out in Utah, is going to expose it, you might want to listen to Gregg Jarrett, who said on Thursday’s “Hannity” show (and I know you watch that show) that he’s convinced the Huber investigation is “nothing more than window dressing.”  He theorizes that it was conjured up by Rod Rosenstein “to continue to obstruct and hide his own corrupt actions.”  If that’s the case, Mr. President, it really is up to you to blow the doors off their bunker.  Nobody else can do it.


I know history isn’t taught proudly in many of our schools the way it used to be.  Still, I can’t help but think that history will thank you for doing this.  It could be your greatest legacy.  Yes, there’s a wall that needs to be built, but there’s also a wall around our law enforcement/intelligence community that needs to come down.  It could mean the very survival of our system of government.

    God bless and protect you, Mr. Huckabee, for your faithfulness in reporting truth and helping to bring the darkness into the light. I am also so appreciative of the wonderful job your daughter is doing and pray protection over her and her family as well. I believe you, your daughter, and Judicial Watch are God's appointed in these dark times. Stay strong and girded up, but know that you have prayer warriors covering you all.

    Sir, we the American people, are sick of hearing and seeing all the evidence, and no one is EVER held accountable. We are putting young service members in prison for doing accidentally, far less ,than Clinton has openly done! If any of us common folks, had done just 1/100th of what these so called public servants have openly done, we would be under the jail. Myself and a great number of people I have talked to, believe, if the Top of the FBI, DOJ, Obama, Clinton and the rest are not brought to justice, there is No reason for any American to follow ANY laws from here on out! The American People want to know why, the President, and the Republicans, refuses to openly call this what it is, A not so silent COUP !!!! Sedition, Obstruction of Justice, Lying to Congress, Violation of the Oath of Office, Conspiracy to commit TREASON, TREASON! When it became clear Trump was in, Sessions ran to Trump asking for that AG position, so that he could block and protect Obama, Clinton, and all the rest. The Mueller Special Council, was nothing more than to give him unquestioned access to all the evidence so that he could hide and destroy it, and there for protect Obama, Clinton, and everyone on down. Far worse than any assassination in our history, this TREASON must be brought to light in front of the American People , and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, up to and including, public hangings! Anything short of that, the ones wanting to separate us will have won , because then we will be looking at a Civil War.

    I agree that President Trump has to release the documents. I’m sure the democrats and the never trumpers are trying to intimidate him with obstruction of justice if he does, but I pray that as soon as he gets Kavannaugh on the Supreme Court he exposes this info and all the dishonest democrats and the games they played. It will ignite the media but it will also reinforce Trumps Base that we voted the right man into office. November’s election is so critical for us. I believe God gave President Trump this calling and he certainly has given him the backbone. Now I pray that God gives him the wisdom to do what needs to be done. Thank you Governor for being a sane voice in these turbulent times. I feel frightened when my loud mouth liberal neighbors and the media bash conservatives relentlessly. You are a very comforting voice to listen to.

    Great commentary as usual, Mike. don't know what the President is waiting on about these documents. I confess, however, that I don't know what he is waiting on about a LOT of issues. Most of the stuff he complains about on twitter is stuff he could remedy all by himself, IF he would only take charge. I wonder has nobody explained to him that: 'Mr President, you are in charge! Stop whining/complaining all the time twitter and DO SOMETHING!!

    Love you comments on the ongoing saga of the Page/Sztrok investigation. I sincerely hope that President Trump will take up your suggestions immediately, rather than later!

    I agree that President Trump needs to declassify all the documents from the FBI, Justice Department and any other department that has been trying to destroy our Country and our President. Rod Rosenstein needs to be fired immediately. The Clintons need to be prosecuted for their crimes. No one is above the law.

    Your piece on the Winds of Change is excellent, not only for its encouragement to President Trump to declassify information, but also for its succinct recap of the nefarious actions of the extreme left. An uninformed fellow could read that and quickly grasp the high points of all this political clap trap from the post election months.
    You go guy! You’re such a stud, and a wonderful writer... not to mention a breath of fresh air!

    I have been praying for the truth to come out and the deep state to reap what they sew. Hallelujah!!! The truth is coming out! By the way, I love the Huckabee show on TBN. Thank you for the wisdom you share with us.

    The idea that Carter Page could have enough wealth to buy out the failing NYTimes and WaPo made my heart sing. He could just shut them down or find some journalists committed to truth. Thx for a great article, Gov Huckabee.

    Great journalism Huck! I'm not big on reading but I love reading everything you write. You are spot on. I thank God for you, Mike Huckabee, Judicial Watch, and our rightful elected president, Donald Trump. I know you are all part of a great miracle that's why the Democrat's are so discombobulated and in disbelief because they didn't calculate a miracle for the greater good of the people into there Master plan. I can't stop smiling when I think about all that has happened and I am excited for all that is to come. Great Bible verse today as well. I love the Holy Spirit and the power it possesses. Hope and faith in righteousness is growing again in our great country faster than it has in a long time.

    Hi Gov. Huckabee, I really appreciate your sense of humor and how you are concise and make the issues so clear. I have been following this issue on Hannity also. I sure hope the President listens to your advice. Also, it would be such a shame if we lose control of the House or Senate. Trump is such a success and if he can continue his agenda, it will save our country. I believe he is a God send. I think the American people will be energized to vote if the President declassifies the documents.

    Governor, your article that spoke of President Trump's lasting legacy being removal of the wall surrounding the FBI & Justice was right on the mark. I can tell you after serving for 12 years in the USN, the absolute, and I mean absolute worst feeling I have ever had has been watching the criminal actions of the past administration receive a get-out-of-jail card. When the former President and then Sec. of State took NO Action while our people were being attacked and killed, I saw a future where the US military was reacting like the Iraqi Army during Desert Storm (dropping their guns and running). No one wants to die. The only reason the men in our military are able to stand their ground against terrible odds, is they know that their leadership will move heaven and earth to get them help when the chips are down. Hillary could have been President right now, if she had stood up, resigned on the spot, and told the press she could not work for an administration that would not support American citizens in their time of need. Instead she went along, fabricated a lie, told it as often as possible in the days following the attack, and is probably still telling it if asked.
    I didn't serve for praise or thanks, honestly, I did it for an education. And I got it, with a BS and an MBA. But I didn't have to. And would not serve for a commander who sends you into harms way, without support, and then lies about it. But, back then, we knew if help wasn't coming, it was going somewhere that needed it more, and by holding on we were helping the entire mission. The mission now is to get elected, even if our entire military must be destroyed. That is treason. Our former leader (I use that term loosely) couldn't give a hoot who died, as long as he won. It is country first, not party. I doubt any republican has the stones to find true justice, but if he did, he would find a massive majority that would support him in any other actions he needed to take.
    Thanks for listening, I wish Congress would.

    The "Mueller Investigation", Illegitimate from the git-go, is mainly for exonerating Obama, Hillary, Lynch, Holder, Lerner, Rice, Jarrett, FBI, and every Rhino who co-mingle their politics with their love for money. Practically all who assist Mueller have Democratic leanings. Sessions recuses the DOJ from its obligation, WH staffers do not possess Trump loyalty, and FBI cronies collude and promote with Mueller to string out the "search and destroy" process beyond the 2018 elections. Since Obama provided Iran with a plane load of cash, you can be certain more cash has been earmarked and/or paid as briberies funneled [laundered] to fellow Swinging Swampers. It does indeed take a large Democratic staff to flush out and destroy every document and dossier that liters the playing field. Truth is the mortal enemy to every Dem lie. Trump has been criticized for appointing losers. However, the losers are exposing their own treacherous trails, other players, who meet in deep state back rooms where deals are cut. In this regard, I see Trump simple enough to be great, and great enough to be simple. He is fearless and strong enough to drain the swamp. Just Git-R-Done! ...and trash those gawd awful golden drapes from the WH decor, especially those behind Trump's desk that were hung by Obama.

    Thoughts: 1) Wake me when someone in the FBI/CIA/IRS or elsewhere in government are actually charged with a crime(s).
    2) Maybe the dems should engage in "statesmanship" instead of "showmy_ _ _manship.
    3) Will the Reps actually bring the Kavanaugh nomination to a vote before the November election?
    4) Who is "actually" in charge of the office of the AG?
    5) I'm going to sell my TV/computer/ because the truth is not in them.

    Your detailed coverage of this travesty of justice and abuse of our legal system is not unnoticed. Please do everything in your power to influence senators, congressmen and the White House to serve appropriate legal action against all those mentioned. Get the ORANGE SUITS out for them all and give Hillary and Bill visiting privileges

    So who cares? We sit here everyday and see headlines like this and everyday there are no headlines to say anyone was arrested and tried or convicted of anything. It seems as life goes on as usual in DC with nobody really caring. When the cell door clanks shut on Killary, Comey and Barry(Obama) then and only then will I care what the headlines say.

    I like you personally Governor, but I'm thinking you're either very naive or you've been in the swamp too long. The last big fish too fry in Washington was Nixon. Maybe, a senator or representative will resign occasionally, but the cabal got its act together after Nixon. They will put on a good show with special counsels and do a lot of grandstanding for the public consumption, even offer up a few low level sacrifices, Popadopoula's, Flynn etc to appease the peasants. But both sides made a pact with the devil years ago and they will not prosecute the big fish, it's just not good for business in the swamp and the cabal see's to it that it doesn't happen. Sessions joined the cabal years ago so the big fish are safe as long as he's in charge of the DOJ. I mentioned a "pact with the devil". It's important to understand what that means. If you've been in Washington more than one term, you are at a cross roads in your career as a politician. Either you are getting out, Mike Lee, etc, or you have joined the cabal. That means you have sold your soul and made a pact with the devil. You have become a swamp creature and that means you have taken an oath to protect the swamp at all costs. The swamp has no party affiliation, nor any concern for the country and its people. Its only allegiance is to the total usurpation of all power-social, economic and political.
    Trump is an enigma. He has accomplished more than most reasonable people would have thought, considering what he's up against. But the cabal will shut him down eventually, probably in November. He's much too big of a threat to the swamp.

    Oh that it would be true! How I long for the lawbreakers to be held accountable. We've waited so long for Hillary to be brought to justice and nothing has happened. It's time for President Trump to declassify all the documents, especially hers. Then I hope some conservative investigative reporters become pit bulls with the info. I'm tired of the scum thumbing their noses at us because they think they're untouchable. I hope this makes all the states turn red
