Latest News

January 22, 2021

Thursday, we brought you the latest on the left’s “war on domestic terrorism,” an attempt to control the 75 million Americans who supported Trump. Former CIA Director John Brennan had spoken out against an “unholy alliance” of various groups, including such frightful dangers to America as libertarians and “religious extremists,” which were not defined.

The stretching of the term “domestic terrorist” to include Trump supporters is particularly ironic considering that some ACTUAL state sponsors of terrorism, in between their chants of “Death to America,” are celebrating Biden’s inauguration.

But no, leftists say it’s Trump supporters our nation should worry about. We’ve reported on a letter circulating in the publishing industry rejecting book deals for “traitors” --- meaning anyone ever affiliated with the Trump administration. FOX NEWS said on Thursday that 547 publishing professionals have now signed the letter, which says, “No participant in an administration that caged children, performed involuntary surgeries on captive women, and scoffed at science as millions were infected with a deadly virus should be enriched by the almost rote largesse of a big book deal. And no one who incited, suborned, instigated, or otherwise supported the January 6, 2021, coup attempt should have their philosophies remunerated and disseminated through our beloved publishing houses.”


Astonishingly, they even invoked so-called “Son Of Sam” laws to equate former Trump administration officials with convicted felons who aren't allowed to profit from book deals after being incarcerated.

By the way, we’re still scratching our heads over the reference to performing “involuntary surgeries on captive women.” For when you have time (it’s very long), here’s an absolutely stellar rebuttal of the letter by Israel-based journalist Ruthie Blum.

Full disclosure: In case you’ve spent the past few years on the planet Mars, my daughter Sarah worked in the Trump administration as press secretary and faced accusations of lying virtually every day, simply for relaying facts and opinions at odds with those of the leftist media.

Thursday on FOX NEWS, legal expert Jonathan Turley called this censorship on the part of publishers “chilling” and “insidious.” He said colleagues have written him to express their fear of speaking out, lest they lose their professorships.

“And that’s exactly the point,” Turley observed. Those in media and education will use that fear to shut down dissenting speech.

He called this "the most anti-free speech period since the Red Scare," saying "the difference is that that period was largely brought about from the right, and universities and media helped resist that effort. This is coming from the left, and they’re much better at it...This anti-free speech movement really is focusing on private companies, and creating a type of ‘digitized mob’ that sets upon anyone that says anything off the narrative.

"And so, what we’re really seeing is something that is so stifling and so dangerous. There was a time when this sort of letter would have had a hue and cry arise from the free speech community. But the silence is perfectly deafening.”

We’ve quoted from a similarly dogmatic FORBES op-ed that said, “Let it be known to the business world: Hire any of Trump’s fellow fabulists [listed] above, and FORBES will assume that everything your company or firm talks about is a lie....”

Turley said that “people of good faith have got to join together. This is not about Trump; it’s about us, and it’s about free speech. And we have to say no to blacklists and yes to a free speech system.”

On Wednesday (inauguration day), THE EPOCH TIMES posted an excellent analysis by Peter Svab entitled “Ideological Alignment Pushing America Towards Totalitarianism, Experts Warn.” It’s offered on their premium subscription, but I think they’ll let you read it on a one-time basis. If not, a premium subscription would be well worth your while.

Caution: this will chill you to your marrow, as it talks forebodingly about the alignment of the most influential forces in our culture. “The formation of a totalitarian state is just about complete in America,” it says, “as the most powerful public and private sector actors unite behind the idea that actions to stamp out dissent can be justified...”

It sounds like a monstrous conspiracy theory to say that elected officials, government bureaucrats, large corporations, academia, think tanks, nonprofits, the mainstream media and new grassroots movements are working together to this end. Most Americans have been caught off guard or still don’t realize it's gone this far.

But Michael Rechtenwald, a retired liberal arts professor (does it seem that most of those speaking out happen to be retired?) at New York University, doesn’t see it resulting from some big conspiracy --- just “ideological realignment and some informal coordination.” The power is “not yet absolute,” he believes, but the effects are being seen throughout society. “Some figures of power and influence are sketching the next step,” he told THE EPOCH TIMES, “labeling large segments of society as ‘extremists’ and potential terrorists who need to be ‘deprogrammed.’”

Indeed, that's just the way John Brennan was talking. And who are the 'extremists'? Why, Trump supporters, of course. And the feds don’t even have to silence them, as Big Tech in the form of Facebook and Google are eager to do their dirty work for them.

As Peter Svab has previously pointed out, the so-called “fact”-checkers at Facebook are dominated by left-leaning organizations. Here’s how the certification process works.

He asks the question, “Who fact-checks the fact-checkers?” Well, in this newsletter, WE often do, and we’d put the objectivity of our two-person research staff up against that of all the "certified" members of the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN).

Svab quotes Richard Shorten in “Modernism and Totalitarianism: Rethinking the Intellectual Sources of Nazism and Stalinism, 1945 to the Present”: The element “that holds totalitarianism together as a composite of intellectual elements” is the ambition of fundamentally reimagining society –- “the intention to create a New Man.” This is why then-candidate Obama’s comment in 2008 that we were “five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America” was so disturbing to some of us even at that time.

Democrats hardly mention “compromise” any longer and now demand one-party rule. Former FBI Director James Comey recently said the Republican Party needs to be “burned down or changed.”

So, how do we fight back? First, we must remember that we as individuals have unalienable, natural, sacred rights, given to us by GOD. Even someone whose belief in God is shaky or nonexistent should consider the rights themselves to be sacred and precious.

The short answer to how we stop this: Leftists can’t fulfill their dream of being dictators if HALF THE COUNTRY refuses to allow it.

    Hello Mr Huckabee. My husband and I live near Harrison, AR. We have always supported you in your political career. We appreciate this article, but we need an answer to this question: What specifically would you have us to do? We vote, and we pray, and my husband has even written our senators several times. The response he got was wishy-washy pandering. It's fine to tell us not to "ALLOW" the Left to be dictators. But how exactly, sir, are we to do that? What is the average citizen to do when our maniacal clown of a new president is signing anything slapped down in front of him, and our beloved country is quickly falling into dictatorial hands? What would you have us to do?

    Dear Mike,as an 81 year old retired teacher and former city counselor,I'm appalled at the Republicans who voted in agreement with Nancy Pelosi to impeach our former president. They have shown their true colors in that being elected to further their careers- instead of why their constituents voted for them-is more important t them. I taught second graders to be kind to each other and to ignore 'mean' remarks from others,but evidently,these politicians never learned this. I wonder how proud their mothers would be of their actions? Senators Schumer and Congresswoman Pelosi have so much hatred toward us that their faces are contorted when they speak of us. I-and most conservatives-will pray for the leadership of the next four years and will certainly not be as hateful,mean,unkind,etc. toward them as has been shown toward us. Senator McConnell,you have surely shown just WHO you really are. If I were friends with you,I'd wonder when it's my turn to have the knife in my back! Shame on you!!

    It seems to me as long as you write your newsletter, and as long as more and more Americans read it, we will be able to resist the censorship. This county is just too diverse, too big, and been free too long for total repression to be possible. I'm not saying, don't be wary, concerned and educated, and prepared. the left will keep trying, all their crazy stuff.

    Age and education usually set the tone for the future in free speech and the belief that journalism is the way to keep freedom straight, be young and strive for people to honestly say the truth, the truth that will set you free. That part found in the Bible a tome so old, yet so full of all the truth mankind needs to live out successful lives. I am old and small education but I see the end of what I 'never thought to see' in my lifetime, my free America, not free anymore..

    I believe all the terrorists are on the left. They have been accusing the right for all the things that they are and what they themselves are doing. The whole world is watching what the left is doing doing. Every day they make America a little weaker by their deceptive words and scheming and conniving actions. I pray for God to continue to bless America.

    We must stand for the US Constitution and Bill of Rights or we will lose them. Universities have successfully warped the mind of millions of students to hate our country. As a result, many of our have been indoctrinated with leftist ideology and will not even listen to reason. They twist the truth to align with the narrative they desire to believe. History warned us of this yet leftist have either refused to teach history or rewritten it. I fear for our country if more do not stand against the evil that is covering the land.

    The funny thing about this, us Trump Supporters come in peace. We are a big family of Christians, American workers, and loving people. Yet were called Terrorists, merely because we support President Trump. We are Patriots. Were not evil at all. Foreign countries tampered with our Elections. They are the real Terrorists! Yet were just going to turn a blind eye to this? Trump 410 Biden 128. That's the real truth! How does this make us Terrorists?

    Thank you, Governor Huckabee, for your newsletter and updates. I have abandoned all other new sources save yours.
    Like countless others I have been sickened by the direction the country has gone, especially the anti Trump vitriol. Even non political tv shows are adopting anti Trump stances, snarky swipes and virtue signaling episodes.
    In the most recent episode of McGyver, a casual reference to the “White House virus “ was mentioned. I wonder how many people caught that. Others of our favorite shows are becoming tainted as well.
    Disgustedly your, Cathy from Fort Davis Texas.

    Democrats are the only domestic enemies this nation has. They have shown that for years. They are the ones distroying this great country and should be deamed enemies of the state.

    Hello...this site is so good.
    There is so much to comment on that it's hard to take it all in.
    The hypocrisy of calling us all domestic terrorists to overturning everything that Trump did.
    What struck me the most right now is the article on fashion. What the heck? A 16-year old in a pink coat is now a fashion icon? So what, right?
    Then they are calling Emhoff's daughter the next fashion rockstar. Give me a break.
    As the article said, they have never put Melania on the cover of a magazine but they do put Michelle Obama on there multiple times. Really?
    Melania is spectacular in her clothes and they almost never wrote things about her.
    A few times they wrote criticisms of her clothes but it was probably the liberal point of view that didn't like it.
    It's almost comical to see the liberal writers fussing and fawning over Biden's grandchildren or Harris's stepchildren and almost godlike in their fashion choices.
    It's going to be a hard road to deal with. Thanks for the insights.

    Well I would like to make a joke of this and proclaim that it doesn't matter at all when one considers the source. But in light of what happened to President Trump, enflaming the public and turning them against him only to label him with a false charge in order to convict him, I have to rethink. We should all be worried about this. They are labeling us and creating a false narrative about us. For what purpose? To arrest and convict us later?

    1. Is it just me, or does Biden look very similar to Alfred E. Neumann?
    2. Disney does it again. In Lion King, Scar's speech (Be Prepared) could be Biden's to his "people".
