The "domestic war" on terrorism is to shut down dissent

By Mike Huckabee

The brainless January 6 attack on the Capitol was a gift to the left, giving the incoming administration an excuse to treat all Trump supporters, going forward, as domestic terrorists. So it should come as no surprise that President Joseph Robinette Biden, in his inaugural address on Wednesday, declared war on domestic terror.

Will definitions be twisted to enable this war to be waged against all those who supported Trump? Will 75 million Americans now be opposed in the same ways we opposed al-Qaeda after 9/11? And what does that do for “unity”?

Former CIA Director and world-class dangerous person John Brennan gave his impression of this “war” on MSNBC, where he now works: “...The members of the Biden team who have been nominated or have been appointed are now moving in laser-like fashion to try to uncover as much as they can about what looks very similar to insurgency movements that we’ve seen overseas, where they germinate in different parts of the country, and they gain strength, and it brings together an ‘unholy alliance,’ frequently, of religious extremists, authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, nativists, even libertarians. And unfortunately, I think there has been this momentum that has been generated as a result of, unfortunately, the demagogic rhetoric of people that have just departed government, but also those who continue in the halls of Congress.”

Let’s break that down. Brennan says the Biden team is now moving in “laser-like fashion” to uncover what “looks very similar” to overseas “insurgency” movements.

"Laser-like”: A laser is quick and focused. In other words, no time for judicial review and due process.

"Looks very similar”: It doesn’t have to BE an insurgency, just give the appearance of one to the people in charge.

"Insurgency”: This loose term may be applied at will. A peaceful protest held to question, say, the outcome of the election would be labeled by many –- including social media, which has the power to censor –- as an insurgency that must be held in check because it might “incite violence.”

"Unholy alliance”: This means groups that might not agree with each other on most things but happen to be on the same side about a particular issue. If no differentiation is made, an innocent group might be considered guilty by association. They wouldn’t even have to associate to be lumped together.

"Religious extremists”: Who are the extremists? Depending on who’s talking, socially-conservative Baptists and Catholics might be considered extremist, while far-left Muslims and militant atheists might not be, simply because their politics are approved by those in charge. Never mind the First Amendment; it’s the politics that will decide how various faiths are treated.

"Authoritarians”: Again, who are the real authoritarians? It seems to me we have people in control now who relish their new power and the idea of running everything way, way too much, and I’m talking about you, Nancy Pelosi and AOC. Among numerous others.

"Fascists”: At least here in America, this word applies most truthfully to those who claim to be “anti-fascist.” But who gets to decide where to slap that “fascist” label? And what if they’ve already dictated that Trump supporters will be the ones labeled fascists, even though the real fascists are the ones burning down buildings and trashing their enemies’ civil rights?

"Bigots/racists”: In the switched-around world of 2021, either of these terms can be used to refer to people who criticize the “anti-racist” movement, even to condemn those of us who think it’s best to be color-blind. If I’m the one talking, the “anti-racist” movement, so-called Critical Race Theory, is the most racist thing to come along since Jim Crow laws. But I’m not the one talking –- not in the halls of government, anyway. And not in public education and the universities. Also, it doesn't help that anyone who supported Trump is automatically labeled a racist.

"Nativists”: This word can be used to describe anyone who just wants to put America first. And –- aha –- all the people who wanted to build a wall and “Make America Great Again.” Anti-immigrant! Bad people!

"Libertarians”: These are people who want as limited a government as realistically possible and all the protections that the Constitution was intended to provide. To the current government, these might be the most dangerous people of all, especially when teamed with fed-up Republicans who lean that way. If they can be lumped in with extremists, fascists and bigots, so much the better.

I"ll translate the rest of what he said: These groups gained “momentum” from Trump-style rhetoric during the past four years, and unfortunately we still have some members of Congress who engage in that. His implication: We need to get those people out.

So, will the new administration be “moving in laser-like fashion” towards getting those people out of office? And will part of their new domestic “war” be to criminalize all of the above, with THEM writing the definitions?

Glenn Greenwald has a stunning and very important, must-read piece, available at, on this new war the left plans to wage on domestic terror.

By the way, Greenwald leans left politically, so does that make ours an “unholy alliance”? No, it does not! Read his piece, and it’s clear who the real authoritarians are. Hint: it’s not Trump supporters.



The Gov. answers letter about leftist groups and "The Squad"

From Carrie:

[The] Tlaib and the "Squad" letter is also endorsed by the Council on Islamic-American Relations (CAIR) and the leftist organizations Demand Progress, Free Press and Win Without War. Governor, you say you agree with these people, but I think that is a bit naive.

CAIR would not want the U.S. government knowing what they do, as CAIR is a front for funding Hamas and other terrorist groups of Arabs. The others are extreme progressives and harmful to sane governance. Those who oppose the surveillance have things to hide.

Tlaib, friend and defender of Farrahkan, has danced wearing the Palestinian flag. Omar is openly anti-Semitic, cheats and lies about everything to do with herself and her official and personal positions. Presley is a racist of the first order. AOC, whose mouth works before she understands what she's saying –- all of these despicable and ignorant women are backing this cause because it affects some of their own underhanded, perhaps scurrilous doings.

From the Gov:

Not naive, Carrie –- just curious about what it is specifically that they no doubt are hiding that gives them a reason to agree, just this once, with Constitution-loving conservatives. That’s the part we’ve “missed.” And it would explain why, in this case, "even a broken clock is right twice a day."

I featured your letter because it’s good to raise the points you do about these organizations and the far-left members of “The Squad.” Don’t think we’ve forgotten any of these. (I might disagree, however, with your observation that Ilhan Omar doesn’t understand what she's saying. It’s more likely that she understands perfectly well what she's saying and just assumes she can get away with her conniving –- which, so far, she has.)

People who oppose government surveillance do so for one of two reasons: 1) They stand, on principle, for civil liberties as outlined in the Constitution, or 2) they don't share those principles but, as you put it, “have things to hide.” The ones who are focused on reason #2 are using reason #1 for cover. That's surely what is happening here –- in this instance, making radical leftists appear, bizarrely, to side with constitutionalists. They will hide behind the Bill Of Rights while abusing the civil liberties of others if it suits their purposes and they think they can get away with it.

Applying that reasoning to this situation, perhaps they want to temper the coming crackdown on Trump supporters not because they care about the rights of Trump supporters but because they fear that they themselves might somehow get caught in that net.

Thanks for writing. But, no, our original observation was not made out of naivete.

New Podcast

By Mike Huckabee

On this episode of The People's Podcast, Governor Huckabee speaks with bestselling author John Cribb about this week's Inauguration and the lessons that soon to be President Biden could take from another president who inherited a divided country - Abraham Lincoln.


Joe Biden

By Mike Huckabee

Wednesday, Joe Biden was Inaugurated President. You can watch the ceremony here, if you like.

And here is a transcript of his speech.

On the whole, I thought it was a good speech. He hit the right notes on unity, urging people to turn down the partisan heat and stop attacking people for holding different views, and saying he wanted to be a President of all Americans. He mentioned George Washington instead of canceling him, quoted the Bible and used the phrase “under God,” three things that might risk getting him canceled by some of his own supporters. I could have lived without some of the digs at his political opponent and America’s “systemic racism,” which were at odds with the unity and reconciliation theme of the speech. But then, I expected to get a lot more of that, so the overall tone was a pleasant surprise.

Still, talk is cheap. Let’s see if it’s backed up by policies that respect all Americans’ beliefs and rights to free speech and freedom of religion. I will pray for America, stay optimistic and hope for the best, but so far, I’m not encouraged that the Biden policies will live up to the rhetoric.

I don’t think there will be any arguments about whether Biden's Inaugural crowd was bigger than Trump’s or Obama’s. The ceremony attendance was eerily sparse, due to the coronavirus and the fear of some sort of attack. Fortunately, all the fences, razor wire and National Guard troops managed to hold back the invisible army of imaginary insurrectionist Trump supporters.

As I expected, there was no massive violent demonstration. The vast majority of Trump supporters are law-abiding, patriotic Americans. After a year of lecturing us not to blame the peaceful protesters for the actions of a small number of violent rioters, the Democrats spent the past two weeks hysterically blaming 75 million peaceful Trump supporters for the actions of a handful of violent idiots at the Capitol.

The massive show of security at the Inaugural was a gross overreaction born out of either paranoia or political theater. Either way, it proved unnecessary, as most Trump supporters found something better to do than cause trouble (like going to their jobs.) This went mostly unmentioned by the liberal press, but not by conservative media.

Violent Leftist Protests Greet Biden Presidency

By Mike Huckabee

However, there were violent demonstrations against Biden, only they came from the far left. In Seattle, Portland and Denver, Antifa mobs staged demonstrations that included assaults, burning the American flag, vandalizing a Democratic Party headquarters and multiple arrests. You can see a lengthy round-up with photos here:

And here’s more

Note: not a MAGA cap in the bunch. Their profane banners included one reading, “We don’t want Biden, we want revenge” with a drawing of a semi-automatic rifle. (Note to Nancy Pelosi: Now, THAT’S violent insurrectionist rhetoric.) Others boldly declared, “We are ungovernable!” Somehow, I get the feeling that’s about to change.

All through the year, radical left anarchists like this were able to riot, loot, attack and burn to their hearts’ content, knowing that local Democrats would protect them, while national politicians and media would conveniently blame their violence on Trump, while also calling him Hitler if he did anything to stop their violence.

They don’t seem to realize that everything changed at 1pm EST, Wednesday. Those troops that Nancy Pelosi called “stormtroopers” when they were stopping the Antifa thugs from attacking federal buildings, businesses and police during the election campaign are now “defenders of democracy against violent insurrectionists,” and Pelosi poses for selfies with them. In fact, she thinks there aren’t enough of them – oh, and that they need machine guns.

I have a feeling that the Antifa punks are soon to discover that their free ride is over. They’ve outlived their usefulness. Now, they’re just a nuisance, a source of bad press that spoils the “unity/Kumbaya/We’re all overjoyed Joe is President” narrative. Republicans have no interest in saving them from the Democrats, and Democrats will no longer protect them from Republicans.

They may think they’re “ungovernable,” but they’re not. They just became expendable.

    I just tried to open an account on MeWe and could not get in. I'm at the point where I do not care to read all the negative articles that trash my favorite President (guess who that might be). My emotions have absorbed as much vitriol as they can stand, but no more. I do not visit Facebook anymore, nor do I use Twitter or any of the myriad sites on which people vent their hatred on others whom they have never seen. All I want is some outlet that will tell me the truth in plain English without incorporating some sort of agenda. Therefore, if possible, I'd like to receive a note from you telling me why I cannot access your new info site. I pray to God that we are able to survive the next 4 years and I need all the encouragement I can get.

    What a sad state we are in. It seems many well known church leaders are defecting to the left by joining our falsely elected Presidents Multi faith commission. It looks like Christ and Belial are niw joined. Like Tashlan in C S Lewis books.
    I saw this happening once the fraud was uncovered. Many of Trumps supporters turned against him.
    Church leaders some of the worst. Like Popes they insulated themselves from the real world. Taught early how to expressions of sympathy. Very disgusting to both man and God.
    Now the infighting is starting. Marxist fake "Christians" are advocating jihad by pushing for Franklin Graham to be fired
    Our leftist government will likely support all efforts to squelch the true Church.
    Next step? Likely going underground like others have and the real patriots emerge.
    At this point there are no real speakers for Almighty God. The likely ones to emerge will be people who simply trust God and His Word.
    I know you won't share this but I saw this emerging as a young Christian when churches turned against the Jesus People move and young believers like me were nit taught a Biblical world view. I gad to do my own footwork.
    At this point Gallup reports that less than 30 percent have been truly saved Biblically.
    How ??

    Governor Huckabee: Enjoyed your newsletter as always.
    Even's hard to really "enjoy" some of the hard truths that are coming at us from the extreme left and now our beloved President Trump who was a defender of America has been denied another 4 years in the White House by fraud and unbelievable criminal acts of stealing the votes in 2020.

    I have to correct something in your comment back to Carrie's letter.
    You (or your staff) accidently quoted Carrie saying that Omar didn't know what she was saying.

    If you re-read Carrie's letter she was referring to AOC who speaks before she thinks. Carrie's quote: "AOC, whose mouth works before she understands what she's saying"
    Your comment back to her Gov. "(I might disagree, however, with your observation that Ilhan Omar doesn’t understand what she's saying..."

    I enjoyed Carrie's letter in calling out in bold truth what these 4 women Squad represent and how they are trying to bring down our America with their hate filled rhetoric. Scary to say the least.

    Thank God we have Him on our side and He is has the final say so.

    I did see through the ruse of "armed to the teeth because Trump supporters are violent and unruly" in D.C. for the inaugural. The early reports on who was in the group of Capitol invaders do include "Proud Boys", Antifa, BLM, and loonies of various kinds rounded up to masquerade as Trumpers. They were undoubtedly paid. However, the Air Force lady pilot is a mystery. They would have been recruiting additional people on site as subterfuge. The police who were waving them into the building is of special concern. Careful advance planning and money could make it all happen. Unpatriotic could cover the motive unless you buy into James Comey's thinking. It is truly a time for careful discernment. "God help us", and He will. We must pray. According to the left, it is obvious what it was. I hope the FBI will be honest, but that is not a sure thing at all. We are in a big mess, but God can turn a mess into a message. With God, nothing is impossible.

    As a Christian and a constitutional conservative . I am so frustrated and angry yes angry with stolen election etc. Pray for those in power is a hard scripture I am sure I am not the only one who finds it hard to pray for those in power . what are we suppose to do short of violence I do not condone what happened at the capital. We are told wait vote them out of office sometimes that is a long wait and in the mean time much damage can be done to our nation 73 million or so voters is a good sized army . I guess I am not very patient to pray and leave it with the Lord .
    Thank you

    Ok Biden is calling for unity ok, then he needs to step out first and condem waters for her running mouth, he needs to condim this companys that are trying to shut down free speech ( and just a side note I ordered some stuff from the my pillow guy to day) . He needs to let us know that he will defend the Constitution for all not just the chosen few, he needs to get this so called empeachment of a private citizen shut down and the list goes on and on. We are called to forgive , but not to forget.

    Antifa and BLM should read a little history. The infamous Nazi Sturm Abteilung - the brown shirts who helped bring Adolf Hitler to power - outlived their usefulness, and became an embarrassment. Ttheir leaders were executed, the organization broken up and jailed, and they completely lost their power by the time Hitler had full control of the government.

    As Jesus used to say, let him who has ears to hear, let himhear.

    Once again thank you Governor for you newsletter and your insight. We all know how often the media and the left labelled President Trump a racists. I read on line this morning that Biden terminated black surgeron general. Does that make him a racist and why are we not hearing about this in the fake media? I also remember Trump being blamed for all the BLM lives matter and Antifa riots. Who are they blaming now about the riots in Oregon.

    This is in reference to your "Violent Leftist Protests Greet Biden Presidency" article. I have been saying for several years now that the BLM and Antiffa are the strong arm of the leftists and Democratic Party: they showed that in Seattle, Portland, St. Louis, and many other places. I have a BS in History, and I believe these two groups look a lot like the Nazi Brown Shirts of the 1920's and 30's. Remember what happened to them? When Hitler finally gained power as German Chancellor, the Brown Shirts were no longer useful to Hitler and his cronies, and they were destroyed on what is known as "The Night of the Long Knives." Director Rohm and all of his people were hunted down, arrested, and killed: thousands...... I have a feeling the BLM and Antifa will be taken under control: not killed mind you, but eliminated. They no longer serve a purpose, and their continued aggression and violence will only undermine the power of the Democrats and their leftist friends....... I appreciate your newsletters and the work you do. I hope and pray you will be allowed to continue... :))

    Based on his speech about unity and the shower of Executive Orders it would appear that Dementia Joe and Ms. Giggles and Grins are not the President and VP. Looks a lot like George Soros with open borders, global governance, and lax law enforcement. Next will be the effort to disarm law abiding citizens so that only the criminals and government enforcers will be armed.
    BTW Have you been scheduled for Deprogramming?
