    New "Russia Collusion" Revelations

    By Mike Huckabee

    At this writing, President Trump has yet to release all the promised declassified “Russia Collusion” investigation documents. But Washington reporter John Solomon claims that the revelations in them will include that Nancy Pelosi’s star impeachment witness, British "academic," Fiona Hill, was actually the operative who introduced Igor Danchenko to Christopher Steele, Danchenko being the source who provided a lot of unverified rumors about Trump that masqueraded as evidence. Also, that the entire phony scandal was created and leaked to the media to neutralize Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. Again, that’s from Solomon, so we have to wait and see if that’s confirmed by the documents.

    However, on Friday, the Senate Judiciary Committee did release transcripts from its investigation into the “investigation,” and we can see why Chairman Lindsay Graham called the “Crossfire Hurricane” probe of Trump "one of the most incompetent and corrupt investigations in the history of the FBI and DOJ." He said there was “no ‘there’ there,” so it should have been stopped, but the agents kept pushing forward anyway to achieve their desired outcome because of their own biases.

    Among the revelations in the transcripts: One FBI agent requested validation of Christopher Steele’s reporting, which started but was stopped by Bill Priestap and (stop me if you’ve heard this name before) Peter Strzok. The agent was so disturbed by their refusal to vet the source of their alleged evidence that he quit the investigation.

    The transcripts also show that the FBI was informed as early as January 2017 that the “Steele dossier” was a load of "second and third-hand information and rumors at best;” that it was "unsubstantiated and unreliable" political opposition research; but they continued using it as evidence to get FISA court warrants and as a basis to appoint a special prosecutor.

    Sen. Graham said the leadership of the FBI under former Director James Comey and former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was "either grossly incompetent" or that "they knowingly allowed tremendous misdeeds"…"There was a blind eye turned toward any explanation other than the Trump campaign was colluding with foreign powers. At every turn, the FBI and DOJ ran stop signs that were in abundance regarding exculpatory information." (And yet, we still have to endure moral lectures from James Comey.)

    In summation, he said, "The FISA court was lied to. Exculpatory information was withheld on those being investigated. The investigators, with some notable exceptions, were incredibly biased and used the powers of law enforcement for political purposes. The subjects of the investigation had their lives turned upside down. It is my hope that counterintelligence investigations will be reined in and this never happens again in America."

    Sadly, considering that the very people responsible are already being lined up for top jobs in a Biden Administration (and you could argue that one of the people most responsible was Joe Biden himself), I wouldn’t bet the farm on it not ever happening again.

    Evidence-Free Jihad Against The GOP

    By Mike Huckabee

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, having twice impeached President Trump without evidence, now apparently wants to prosecute Republican House members for allegedly aiding the Capitol rioters, again without evidence.

    Pelosi’s desire to expel elected Representatives just for supporting what they assumed would be a peaceful rally or using their Constitutional power to challenge a vote they considered suspect was so over the top that even a liberal columnist in the Washington Post condemned it. He pointed out that under such a House precedent, “any member who helps to organize a mass rally that is disliked by a super majority of Congress could be at risk of expulsion or censure. We cannot have a democracy where minorities are subject to sanction when they legally protest against an existing majority.”

    And here’s more on the evidence-free jihad against GOP House members:

    I must be getting old. I remember when Democrats thought that convicting people without evidence was a bad thing – except certain Southern Democrats, who specialized in it.


    New Information About The Riot

    By Mike Huckabee

    I have said since the tragic and inexcusable violence that broke out last week in the US Capitol that everyone involved should be brought to justice. Some people tried to say it was Antifa people in Trump garb, but some of the participants have already been identified as Trump supporters. Some may be from far-right extremist groups who planned to start trouble (and Trump’s speech had nothing to do with it)…

    Some others may have just been Trump supporters who followed along, not knowing what they were getting into. But if they participated in rioting, then they have to be held accountable. Our side can’t have the kind of double standard the left engages in, posturing as defenders of law and order over riots by their political opponents while excusing and even enabling riots by their own side. So I want it made clear that I will not cut any slack for Trump supporters who acted violently and broke the law. In fact, I expect them to act responsibly, which I can’t say of the leftists.

    All that said, however, I still want the investigators to identify everyone responsible for that riot, and to make them publicly and legally accountable. And the more we’re learning about it, the more it appears that there might have been more leftist skullduggery than we were first led to believe.

    Rather than try to summarize all this, I’ll direct you to this story, which has video from within the Capitol that day (warning: the images are disturbing and some of the language is raw.)

    The video appears to show that John Sullivan, the alleged Utah BLM organizer who claims he was only there to record the event, was not only egging on the violence but at one point marvels that “we accomplished this,” (Sullivan claims he was just putting on an act to build rapport with the real rioters – yeah, that’s the ticket!) A blonde woman with him says, “You were right! We did it!” Sullivan replies, “Dude, I was trying to tell you. I couldn’t say much. Is this not going to be the best film you’ve ever made in your life?”

    That woman appears to be Jade Sacker, a journalist who’s worked with NBC, NPR and CNN, and who later appeared on CNN with Sullivan to tell Anderson Cooper about what they’d innocently witnessed. Note the fact-check website has a different take on Sacker's credentials.

    Also revealed was a series of Sullivan’s posts on a chat site called, on a channel associated with his radical leftist group, Insurgence USA. The posts reveal Sullivan posing in a Trump cap to show how he planned to blend in with Trump supporters and other anti-Trumpers discussing the same tactics and talking about how this is going to be a war and they were planning violent incidents masquerading as Trump rallies.

    I know this all sounds like the kind of thing dismissed by the mainstream media as crazy conservative conspiracy theories, but if you go to this link, you can see all of Sullivan’s Discord posts and photos copied directly off the Internet.

    Yet despite all these revelations and facing federal charges, Sullivan was released without bail by a federal judge. He was ordered to surrender his passport, be detained at and work from home, no longer use social media, have his internet and computer use monitored, be prohibited from possessing firearms, and stop working for Insurgence USA, although he doesn’t have to give up control of it.

    Maybe now, we’re starting to understand why Nancy Pelosi had to rush through her Impeachment 2 sequel without waiting for the evidence to be gathered.

    Also worth mentioning: if the violence at the Capitol was planned on Discord, why was Parler shut down?

      Regards to: New "Russia Collusion" Revelations. I cannot believe that the FISA Court Judge did not pull any of these " investigators " right back into his court room. All the Judges I have ever met would never stand for this behavior and there would be very serious consequences and any future testimony or evidence would be " Poison Fruit " in at least in front of this Judge. Any future defense attorney would have a field day with any or all the principal actors involved including the Judge.

      This is getting scary. My friend Sharon Brooks and I wrote a prayer we hope people will say and share. We are just humble old ladies but trust God's love. .
      Heavenly Father - We implore your mercy on our country the United States of America. We ask you to calm the storms of hate and violence which threaten us now. Endow all of our leaders with the wisdom to govern fairly and in keeping with our Constitution. Expose the hearts who are filled with evil. We thank you for all who labor to keep us safe. Protect them in all that they do. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

      The FBI knew about all this stuff in Jan 2017.
      It's now Jan 2021.
      Doesn't the FBI STILL know about this stuff?
      Why aren't those involved being prosecuted?
      Are they waiting for the statute of limitations to expire or something?
      It seems like the FBI has to wait to do any law enforcement until after they're asked by the correct career politician.
      What's up with that?

      I have a clue for Lindsay Graham. What the Comey FBI did was not incompetence, it was an intententional coup. When will politicians stop mincing words and try using plain talk? How can a cabal with Strozk, McCabe, Comey, Hillary, Obama, Brennan, Clapper, et al. still be running free when they are fundamentally felonious traitors? Is this a good example of how a Republic should operate? Color me sick and tired of the Bull crap. I have had all I can take of rank idiocy. jm

      Lockdown politics:
      Open up since Biden won?
      What IF Trump won , lock down for 4 years?
      OR moving goalposts seeds for Civil War 2
      Or more "games" by Dems.
      Then why add 100 days more for lockdown? Science or politics.
      Getting angrier by the second.
      Love to see the mask mandate forced on the elites IF any follow up on

    McConnell will step down as Senate Republican Leader in November

    Mitch McConnell announced Wednesday that he will step down as Senate Republican Leader in November. He is the longest-serving party leader in US history. He did not say if this has anything to do with the criticism he’s received from conservatives or with his recent health issues that caused him to freeze up in mid-sentence a time or two. But while he will no longer be the GOP leader, he intends to continue serving in the Senate at least through the end of his current term in January 2027.

    And here’s a surprise: Robert Kennedy Jr. suggested that McConnell be replaced by Sen. Rand Paul. RFK Jr. tweeted, “It’s time to promote leaders in Washington, DC, who won’t kowtow to the military contractors or push us deeper into foreign conflicts. We need representation who will prioritize American wellness over all else. I believe Rand Paul would be an incredible successor. He’s shown great judgment and has the grit to put hardworking Americans first.”

    Get Out

    Law Professor William A. Jacobson of the Legal Insurrection blog has been watching the politicized lawfare against Trump and conservative businesses and organizations in New York, and the unprofessional threats and ugly gloating by Attorney General Letitia James about how she’s going to destroy Trump. He analyzed the situation in light of assurances by Gov. Hochul that if your business isn’t doing anything wrong, you have nothing to fear. And he arrived at this conclusion: 

    “Get out of New York, if you can.” And if you can’t leave now, “Develop an exit plan before you need it.

    Pray for the Panhandle

    Please join me in prayers today for those in the path of the huge wildfires in the Texas Panhandle and neighboring Oklahoma. There are five wildfires that are causing school closures and evacuations, including the evacuation of a nuclear power plant. The largest of them, the Smokehouse Creek Fire, covers 800 square miles and is now the second-largest wildfire in state history.

    This is a link to live updates on the fires from the Weather Channel.

    No test?!?

    The White House announced Wednesday that President Biden is making an unannounced trip to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for his yearly physical exam…which will NOT include a cognitive test. Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dismissed questions about a cognitive test, saying Biden proves his cognitive abilities "every day [in] how he operates and how he thinks."  I’m confused, is that an argument for or against a cognitive test?

    Talk about a delicious irony

    One of the strongest arguments for overturning the ruinously large fine on Trump in his New York real estate fraud case is the Eighth Amendment protection against excessive fines. The Supreme Court ruled 9-0 in 2019 that that protection does apply to state courts. And one of the strongest arguments for Trump to cite came from liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who said:

    “The prohibition embodied in the Excessive Fines Clause carries forward protections found in sources from Magna Carta to the English Bill of Rights to state constitutions from the colonial era to the present day. Protection against excessive fines has been a constant shield throughout Anglo-American history for good reason: Such fines undermine other liberties. They can be used, e.g., to retaliate against or chill the speech of political enemies.”

    I might not have agreed with many of her rulings, but judging from this, there’s no doubt she was psychic.

    Public Service Announcement

    Public service announcement to anyone thinking of donating to Harvard or sending their kids there: The co-chair of Harvard’s anti-Semitism task force resigned Monday because she has no confidence that Harvard will implement any of the task force’s recommendations to stop Jew hatred on campus.

    Related: Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media has a news round-up illustrating how bedbug crazy these pro-Palestine dingbats are and how they “have more vocal cords than brains,” from calling Jerry Seinfeld a “genocide supporter” to literally setting themselves on fire.




    Private School For Me, But Not For Thee

    Two Democrat Governors, Roy Cooper (North Carolina) and Andy Beshear (Kentucky), co-wrote an op-ed for USA Today condemning Republican attempts to give low-income parents vouchers to send their kids to the schools of their choice. They painted this as a racist conspiracy to loot the budgets of our precious public school system and set our schools back for a generation (as if the COVID lockdowns and the focus on woke politics and LGBTQ activism hadn't already set public school students back a generation.) 

    One problem: Both Democrat Governors send their own kids to elite private schools. But that’s okay because, hey, they can afford it.


    The Best People

    President Trump was roundly condemned as a racist and a xenophobe for saying of illegal immigration that other countries were not sending us their best people. So just to clarify, here’s an example of one of those best people that Joe Biden let in.
