WITH SO MUCH EVIDENCE, DELAY IN INDICTMENTS IS ABSURD

Late last week, we brought you some newly declassified documents showing the FBI was ridiculously well aware there was no evidence of the Trump campaign “colluding” with Russians. Yet they went right on accusing Carter Page of being a Russian agent and kept renewing the application to spy on him as a window into the campaign and the activities of Trump's associates. We know without a doubt that this happened, because we have it in their own words, not just in casual texts but even in official reports.

A couple of additional key documents are expected sometime this week. And we’re hearing the word “indictments” more frequently.

Mark Meadows, in his first interview with Maria Bartiromo on FOX NEWS’ SUNDAY MORNING FUTURES since becoming President Trump’s chief of staff, used that word. “I know I expect indictments from the evidence I’ve seen,” he said.

He referenced the “couple of other documents” that will be coming out and said, “It’s all starting to unravel and, I tell you, it’s time for people to go to jail and people [to be] indicted.”

Something else related to swap-draining will be revealed in a few weeks, and I’m not quite sure what to think about it, not having seen it yet. It’s an HBO documentary actually called THE SWAMP, featuring dedicated swamp-drainer Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz along with Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie and Colorado Rep. Ken Buck. The producers claim to have had “unfettered access” to them as they covered “a pivotal year in politics, demonstrating the breadth and grip of a system that rewards money-raising above all else, playing Congress on both sides of the aisle.”

The film focuses primarily on these three Republicans, but three Democrats are also interviewed: California Rep. Ro Khanna, Maryland Rep. John Sarbanes, and disgraced former California member of Congress Katie Hill.

It has promised to expose “how the prevalence of lobbyists and special interest groups in Washington can influence policy based on financial contributions and how Congressmembers’ ability to get key committee assignments depends on how much money they are able to bring in, reflecting both their rank and their ability to affect legislation.”

Ben Kew in BREITBART compares this effort to those of BREITBART NEWS senior contributor and president of the Government Accountability Institute Peter Schweizer, whose 2020 book ‘PROFILES IN CORRUPTION: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite’ takes a look at how Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, and (oh, yes) Joe Biden “cashed in” through corruption and special interests.

Until THE SWAMP debuts on August 4, it’s impossible to know how good a job it does of exposing the corruption within the government. There’s just so much of it, they could turn it into a long-running documentary series without addressing it all. And considering “the swamp” has long been in cahoots with so many in the media, it’s easy to be skeptical about the objectivity of any such production. The directors, Daniel DiMauro and Morgan Pehme, also produced the 2017 Netflix documentary GET ME ROGER STONE.

Pehme appeared with GET ME ROGER STONE director Dylan Bank on MSNBC following Trump’s pardon of Roger Stone. You’ll see from the trailer and from this interview that they aren’t exactly fans of Trump or Stone and certainly painted Stone as a personification of the corruption in Washington. That doesn’t mean their new romp through "the swamp" isn’t accurate –- I don’t want to prejudge that –- but it does give us an idea of what they might and, more importantly, might not be focusing on as they peer into its murky depths. We'll see.

Finally, Sara Carter has a hard-hitting commentary on the news we had last week about the FBI and the need to see justice done.

Carter asks the $64,000 Question: If “senior Obama and law enforcement officials didn’t believe there was evidence to prove a conspiracy, or that one even existed, then WHO IN POWER GAVE THE DIRECTIVE [emphasis mine] to target the Trump campaign and continue investigating beyond the election?”

These people knew it was a lie, yet they harmed America’s national security by feeding their lie to the media: newspapers, social media, and cable news outlets around the world. “It was a disinformation campaign unlike anything ever seen in U.S. politics and it was cultivated by former senior intelligence officials with extraordinary power,” Carter rightly says.

I strongly agree with her concern over Barr’s recent statement that U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation might not be completed until after the November election. It’s understandable that Barr doesn’t want to be seen as getting in the way of a political process, but holding information back from the public is ALSO a kind of interference, an arguably worse one. That's because in deciding whom to support, voters need and deserve as much information about the candidates and the political parties as they can possibly get. (That’s why I always urge waiting until Election Day to vote; if something comes out at the last minute to cause you to change your mind, it’s too late and your precious vote is wasted.)

So, if Durham has concluded that indictments are called for, Barr needs to move forward. And that report has got to come out, no matter what it reveals. We’ve had investigation after investigation for years now, and it’s time. Long past time, in fact.

Carter says she hasn’t “seen any real results since first publishing stories more than three years ago on the subject.” She says she’s “starting to feel, like most people involved in exposing what has happened, like there’s no light at the end of the tunnel.” Judging from letters I receive from readers, she has a great deal of company.

On the bright side, look at what we do already know. Even if indictments aren’t handed down soon, we know there is PROOF that the FBI, with help with some in the DOJ, State Department, CIA and the media, and even some senators and members of Congress perpetrated a fraud to influence the 2016 election and sabotage Trump’s presidency. We even know that Obama and Biden were present at a meeting about at least one aspect of that sabotage, that of framing Michael Flynn.

But that makes it even more frustrating when Durham says his report might not be out before the election. At this point, months of additional delay would be absurd. Those who directed and led the soft coup against the Trump administration must be exposed and indicted, or our legal system is a joke. Or, as Carter put it, “We will no longer be the nation based on the principles of justice and liberty we believe ourselves to be but something altogether different.”

As we near the election, we see leftists trying to MAKE us into something altogether different. Indictments of those who perpetrated this fraud are the appropriate way to push back and show that’s not going to happen.

TWO AMERICAS

To the left, the ongoing violence in cities like New York, Chicago, Portland, and Seattle has nothing to do with Democrat officials forcing police to let radicals run roughshod, destroying property and threatening citizens and cops. No, there’s always someone else to blame: Republicans, the NRA, and now in Portland, Donald Trump’s “federal goons” who are allegedly arresting “peaceful protesters” and driving them away in unmarked vans.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/portland-official-slams-mayor-claims-police-and-trump-goon-squad-target-protesters

And here’s who those federal officers actually are…

https://www.westernjournal.com/lefts-fear-mongering-secret-police-narrative-shattered-turns-viral-portland-arrest-trumps-new-pact-force/

Across America, police are being assaulted, insulted, and even killed.

Meanwhile, the president of Black Lives Matter in New York City says those cops are just “crying” and “acting like a bunch of big babies.” I don’t think babies are famous for being able to exhibit such a superhuman amount of self-control.

https://www.foxnews.com/media/hawk-newsome-kilmeade-cops-black-lives-matter

The Democrat officials in places like Portland insist the protests are “peaceful.” Here’s what’s actually happening…

So how can people look at these situations and see them in such radically different terms? I don’t know but I think this sums up the current moment well. We here at MikeHuckabee.com have obtained exclusive footage of a law enforcement official reassuring the public that authorities have the peaceful protests completely under control and need no help from President Trump.

FEDERAL JUDGE'S FAMILY SHOT, SON KILLED

In New Jersey, someone posing as a Fed Ex driver came to Federal Judge Esther Salas’ home and shot her husband and 20-year-old son. Her son was killed. The judge was in the basement at the time and was unharmed. This is a developing story, and the FBI is on the case. I’ll have more when we know more.

GOYA BOYCOTT UPDATE

About that AOC-led boycott of Goya because their CEO praised President Trump’s initiative to help create Hispanic-American jobs? Yeah, it’s still not going too well.

FOUNDERS WERE HEROES

More proof that you shouldn’t be afraid to say what you believe. Chances are, most people agree with you.

SOME CALIFORNIA CHURCHES ARE DEFYING THE GOVERNOR

Some churches in California are defying Gov. Gavin Newsom’s unconstitutional ban on holding services, even though they’re taking extreme precautions, more so than businesses allowed to stay open (taking temperatures at the door, passing out masks, offering an outdoor worship alternative, social distancing, 25% capacity, etc.)

More power to them. And this may hearten them in their fight: in Virginia, a pastor who was hit with criminal charges and threatened with up to a year in jail for holding services saw those charges dropped for no stated reason.

Maybe the reason is that out-of-control Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam realized how that case would go once it got in front of a judge and jury that had actually heard of the First Amendment. This is a case where the legal system, used for so long by leftists as a weapon against the people, is now protecting the people from power-mad leftists. And the church is still pressing its legal rights with the help of the Liberty Counsel, suing Northam for discrimination for raiding their church for having 16 people in a 250-seat church (six over the “crowd” limit) while he exempted other organizations and even encouraged and participated in mass anti-police/BLM protests.

The Trump DOJ has filed a statement of interest in the case on behalf of the church. I’ll also be very interested to see how this comes out, and if the churches in California decide to call up the Liberty Counsel, too.

THE STATE OF THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE

I keep telling people that most public political polls are meaningless, and those taken this far from an election are less than meaningless. But the media keep hyping the “Biden’s double-digit lead” angle to make it seem as if the election were over (I find it odd that Americans have had multiple chances over the past four decades to make Joe Biden President, but only now that he’s nearing 80 have they shown the slightest interest in the prospect.)

All this has many Trump supporters worried. Combined with the relentless daily media assault on Trump, the blame heaped on him for a virus unleashed on the world by China that his China-appeasing opponents have done everything in their power to prolong, and the right-on-cue riots and racial division that Democrats desperately need to keep minorities from noticing how much worse they have fared under Democrats for the past half-century-plus, they fear Trump’s chances of reelection are slipping.

The media refuse to report what he says honestly (look at the wild misrepresentation of his Mount Rushmore speech), and he can’t hold his rallies to fire up enthusiasm. I suspect, however, that Trump supporters are a lot more enthusiastic than they’re letting on or than is being reported. A Trump bumper sticker might get your car vandalized, but once inside the voting booth, that might just make people punch that “Trump” button all the harder.

Still, the recent shake-up in Trump’s campaign organization shows that he knows some adjustments are needed. One thing that would help would be for him to get off defense and back on offense. Remind people how he actually kept his campaign promises in 2016 to bring troops home, renegotiate bad trade deals, stand up to China, make our allies keep their commitments, bring our troops home, crush ISIS and enforce immigration laws (when he wasn’t being hamstrung by a million lawsuits and out-of-control federal judges), not to target legal immigrants but to keep illegal immigration from undermining American jobs and wages. He promised to create jobs and boost economic growth, and he did.

Trump promised to cut two regulations for every new one, and as Liz Peek at Fox News notes, he’s actually cut eight. Under Obama/Biden, the Federal Register reached an all-time record 97,110 pages. They added 3,853 new rules, of which 629 were flagged as having notable effects on small businesses. Under Trump, the number of federal regulations is the lowest since the 1970s, resulting in record low unemployment in virtually every demographic group, “and in early 2019, hourly wages rose 3.4 percent over the year before, the highest rate in 10 years.”

Trump built an economy so strong, it took a virtual biological attack by China to cripple it, but even now, it’s already surging back. Trump needs to hammer the point that if you want the economy to expire like a senior citizen in a New York public nursing home, then put Joe Biden and the Democrats, with their quack remedies of huge taxes, more regulations, big government and nonexistent “green jobs” back in power.

Trump also needs to build on his great Mount Rushmore speech that’s been deliberately misconstrued, to remind us again and again that we have been bequeathed a great nation and a Constitution and economic system that are the envy of the world, and Americans of every race, creed and gender can succeed when we follow the path the Founders laid out and work together.

Kurt Schlichter has a must-read column outlining 21 second-term promises that he thinks Trump should make, to outline a positive vision the way he did in 2016. When I say it’s a must-read, that means I hope President Trump reads it, too, since there are some great ideas in here. If voters think about the nation that these ideas could lead to, and compare it to the possible Ghost-of-America’s-Future under Democrats that we can see right now in Portland, Seattle, New York City or Chicago, I can’t imagine how anyone who could pass a cognitive test would want to vote for Biden.

FAKE NEWS MONDAY

Fake News Monday: A scare story swept the Internet that officials in Nueces County, Texas, (Corpus Christi) reported a sudden surge of 85 coronavirus cases in babies under age one in one day. It was later clarified that it was a total of 85 babies under age two (separate source) who tested positive for the virus over the 4-1/2 months since March. There is no surge in infections of babies. Only one baby who tested positive during the time died, but that child showed unrelated symptoms, and the actual cause of death has still not been determined.

While any death of a baby is a horrible tragedy (and I wish I could get everyone to agree with that), just for perspective, the CDC reports that between February 1 and July 11th, 11,146 children aged 0-14 died in the US. Of those, 31 were classified as COVID-19 deaths, although it’s not clear whether they died of or simply with the virus.

    They CANNOT wait until AFTER the election to bring out information..because the democrats will destroy everything they have found out..it will never be available to anyone!! Is Barr really on the side for justice? If so, he and Durham need to get it out NOW!!!

    I really think the Mayor of Portland is a member of Antifa, and just like AOC and the "squad" have worked his way into a position to try and destroy the USA from within. This has got to stop. I will be donating more than ever this year to help true American Conservatives replace these people.

    This is probably irrelevant but Google seems to be helping the Covid19 cause. If you ask Google how many new cases of COVID using any 3 digit number (example 980) it will automatically come up with a state and county where there are that many new cases. It doesn't matter what 3 digit number you use it will come up with an answer. I hope people aren't gullible enough to fall for this and why in the world would Google lie?

    3. President Trump has to start winning the propaganda war. The press will not be fair so bypass them with public events to inform and showcase successes.

    Governor: I think Sara Carter and others need to start investigating AG Barr and Durham. The only reason there are no arrests and charges NOW with all this evidence is because something is stopping Barr. Could it be a buyoff from Soros? or threats of suicide against he or his family from Clinton?
    It is becoming painfully clear that he and Durham have an agenda not in the best interests of truth coming out. Very sad.

    The democrat proven lies and hoax of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia was a large success for them. The democrats' corruption changed the mind of at least 17 percent of the voters and corruption helped the democrats win a majority in the House in the 2018 mid-term election. Release of Durham's investigation of the democrats' corruption to materially influence the 2018 mid-term election is justice. No good reason exists to postpone justice until after the election.

    First, I am really sick and tired of these FAKE news stories. Thank you for clarifying about the babies that got sick with the coronavirus in Texas. I was just mentioning this FAKE story to my husband so was relieved that it was not accurate. The last thing is that I along with many other Americans am completely fed up and frustrated with the lack of movement regarding the Attorney John Durham's report or indictments for criminal action. To have Attorney General Barr say that Durham's investigation may not be completed until after the election is TOTALLY OUTRAGIOUS. The corruption that has been uncovered is staggering with tons and tons and tons of written proof of the Democrats desire to overthrow President Trump and put innocent people in jail. This is HIGH TREASON and should be treated that way. After years of all of these investigations, lies, impeachment attempts there is so much proof of top intelligence heads that lied to the Courts etc. etc. etc. that I am truly disgusted that Durham's investigation has not been completed yet. To even insinuate that waiting until after the election to produce the results of this investigation is somehow less political is TOTALLY ABSURB!!! The American people DESERVE TO KNOW THE TRUTH BEFORE THE ELECTION so they can make an informed decision. I hate to say this but what side is Barr and Durham on???? I really hope that this investigation will be completed by Labor Day or sooner. The Republicans blow their nose and get put in jail but the Democrats from Obama/Biden/Hillary on down can get away with HIGH CRIMES is unbelievable! Our nation needs a lot of prayer and divine intervention!

    In my worthless opinion, it's long past time for POTUS & AG to begin making arrests and charging people under 18 US CODE 115 section 2381 (Treason) and 2383 (Rebellion or insurrection) and 2384 (Seditious conspiracy). The longer these people get away with it, the less likely we are to be able to contain it without a full blown blood running in the streets (un)civil war. In fact, lest I risk being charged under section 2382, I am now writing letters to both of them asking for the arrests of the traitors to begin. Nancy P. saying that whether he knows it or not, Trump IS leaving the White House and she's prepared to use the Continuation [sic] of Government to make sure it happens was the last straw for me. She IS a traitor and she IS inciting rebellion/insurrection, along with AOC and a whole bunch of other low-lifes in government positions.

    Mr. Huckabee,
    Let's do some supposing here for a second. Let's suppose that Durham does not complete his investigation until after the election. Let's suppose there is ample evidence to crucify several of those in the deep state who have been under investigation. And then AFTER the election Barr brings indictments against them.
    Now let us suppose that Biden wins the election(I shudder at the thought). How far will he get in prosecuting them before Jan 20 when Biden takes office? How long will Barr be the Attorney General after Biden (his string pullers actually) take office?
    It is very dangerous to delay the investigation and indictments.
    If it is delayed until after the election we can assume that Durham and Barr are part of the charade and their goal is to put everything off as long as possible in order to avoid having to put any of their crony's in the hoosegow, and also to give Biden a better chance to win the election.

    Sir,
    I agree with 99% of what you are saying . However a suggestion. Why can't the Republicans mount a STRONG campaign against the media misinformation? There has to be somewhere a newspaper/ media outlet that will print or tell (with proof) the truth. A long time ago when I was in the Air Force (22 years), I gave a speech at Air University concerning "10 easy steps to overthrow a government". It was meant to be a speech to convince people to believe what I was saying. I NEVER mentioned the name of a country, however what I did do was research newspapers, history etc and came up with documented proof that what I was saying could very easily accomplish the downfall of a government. By "coincident" everything I said was happening to the United States at that time. After the speech, I was directly told that I was to "forget" everything in that speech and to NEVER give it again. I was told this by some pretty high ranking individuals and civilians. What I see today is EXACTLY what I said in my speech. Newspapers and the media are telling half truths and outright lies. People are turning against one another because of political differences. Armed gangs are roaming the street of American cities and the government is afraid to stop them. (If the local governments won't or can't stop them, then the Federal Government has a responsibility to step in and stop it.) Our Federal Government is SUPPOSED to protect ALL citizens (no matter what their ethnic group) against foreign and domestic threats. I, along with thousands of others, spent 20+ years defending our country in foreign wars. Its just plain wrong to let what's happening, happen to our country. I am an old man with old fashioned beliefs in what our country stands for(or should I say, used to stand for.) I am also a retired high school teacher and I know what's being taught in our schools today by liberal minded teachers. I talking both high schools and college. They are now talking about doing away with the National Anthem. You've got to be kidding! Lets get back to the idea that "the majority rules" mind set and stop these idiots (of all kinds) from tearing this country apart.

    Someone on our neighborhood forum was complaining that people were not wearing masks at the farmer’s market. He wanted police to be there to deny entrance to those not wearing masks. A few others and I tried to defend our freedom by explaining why it shouldn’t be mandatory to wear a mask. The discussion was long and those liberals were getting nasty. One mentioned that when Ghislane started singing that Trump would be in jail. I spoke up and said no it would be Bill Clinton and the like. I also said I couldn’t wait until John Durham started indicting people like Comey, Brennan, Clapper and Hillary and putting them in jail. She came back and said that will never happen. I started to agree with her because in my entire life I have not seen the corrupt Democrats get what they deserve. Then I was thinking that if John Durham doesn’t start indicting soon there may not be time for a trial before the election. I believe that someone needs to go to jail because of the coup before the election in order for some on the left to start believing there was/is a coup. I realize there will be many on the left will never believe their people are corrupt, but I believe it will change the minds of some more moderate leftists.

    When I was out driving today, I was listening to conservative Talk Radio and Rush Limbaugh was on. A young man called in, saying he was a Democrat in California and he and a lot of his Democrat friends [who voted for Hillary in the last election] will be voting for Trump in November. So maybe the polls that say that Biden is going to win in the next election are skewed after all!

WITH SO MUCH EVIDENCE, DELAY IN INDICTMENTS IS ABSURD

Late last week, we brought you some newly declassified documents showing the FBI was ridiculously well aware there was no evidence of the Trump campaign “colluding” with Russians. Yet they went right on accusing Carter Page of being a Russian agent and kept renewing the application to spy on him as a window into the campaign and the activities of Trump's associates. We know without a doubt that this happened, because we have it in their own words, not just in casual texts but even in official reports.

A couple of additional key documents are expected sometime this week. And we’re hearing the word “indictments” more frequently.

Mark Meadows, in his first interview with Maria Bartiromo on FOX NEWS’ SUNDAY MORNING FUTURES since becoming President Trump’s chief of staff, used that word. “I know I expect indictments from the evidence I’ve seen,” he said.

He referenced the “couple of other documents” that will be coming out and said, “It’s all starting to unravel and, I tell you, it’s time for people to go to jail and people [to be] indicted.”

Something else related to swap-draining will be revealed in a few weeks, and I’m not quite sure what to think about it, not having seen it yet. It’s an HBO documentary actually called THE SWAMP, featuring dedicated swamp-drainer Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz along with Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie and Colorado Rep. Ken Buck. The producers claim to have had “unfettered access” to them as they covered “a pivotal year in politics, demonstrating the breadth and grip of a system that rewards money-raising above all else, playing Congress on both sides of the aisle.”

The film focuses primarily on these three Republicans, but three Democrats are also interviewed: California Rep. Ro Khanna, Maryland Rep. John Sarbanes, and disgraced former California member of Congress Katie Hill.

It has promised to expose “how the prevalence of lobbyists and special interest groups in Washington can influence policy based on financial contributions and how Congressmembers’ ability to get key committee assignments depends on how much money they are able to bring in, reflecting both their rank and their ability to affect legislation.”

Ben Kew in BREITBART compares this effort to those of BREITBART NEWS senior contributor and president of the Government Accountability Institute Peter Schweizer, whose 2020 book ‘PROFILES IN CORRUPTION: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite’ takes a look at how Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, and (oh, yes) Joe Biden “cashed in” through corruption and special interests.

Until THE SWAMP debuts on August 4, it’s impossible to know how good a job it does of exposing the corruption within the government. There’s just so much of it, they could turn it into a long-running documentary series without addressing it all. And considering “the swamp” has long been in cahoots with so many in the media, it’s easy to be skeptical about the objectivity of any such production. The directors, Daniel DiMauro and Morgan Pehme, also produced the 2017 Netflix documentary GET ME ROGER STONE.

Pehme appeared with GET ME ROGER STONE director Dylan Bank on MSNBC following Trump’s pardon of Roger Stone. You’ll see from the trailer and from this interview that they aren’t exactly fans of Trump or Stone and certainly painted Stone as a personification of the corruption in Washington. That doesn’t mean their new romp through "the swamp" isn’t accurate –- I don’t want to prejudge that –- but it does give us an idea of what they might and, more importantly, might not be focusing on as they peer into its murky depths. We'll see.

Finally, Sara Carter has a hard-hitting commentary on the news we had last week about the FBI and the need to see justice done.

Carter asks the $64,000 Question: If “senior Obama and law enforcement officials didn’t believe there was evidence to prove a conspiracy, or that one even existed, then WHO IN POWER GAVE THE DIRECTIVE [emphasis mine] to target the Trump campaign and continue investigating beyond the election?”

These people knew it was a lie, yet they harmed America’s national security by feeding their lie to the media: newspapers, social media, and cable news outlets around the world. “It was a disinformation campaign unlike anything ever seen in U.S. politics and it was cultivated by former senior intelligence officials with extraordinary power,” Carter rightly says.

I strongly agree with her concern over Barr’s recent statement that U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation might not be completed until after the November election. It’s understandable that Barr doesn’t want to be seen as getting in the way of a political process, but holding information back from the public is ALSO a kind of interference, an arguably worse one. That's because in deciding whom to support, voters need and deserve as much information about the candidates and the political parties as they can possibly get. (That’s why I always urge waiting until Election Day to vote; if something comes out at the last minute to cause you to change your mind, it’s too late and your precious vote is wasted.)

So, if Durham has concluded that indictments are called for, Barr needs to move forward. And that report has got to come out, no matter what it reveals. We’ve had investigation after investigation for years now, and it’s time. Long past time, in fact.

Carter says she hasn’t “seen any real results since first publishing stories more than three years ago on the subject.” She says she’s “starting to feel, like most people involved in exposing what has happened, like there’s no light at the end of the tunnel.” Judging from letters I receive from readers, she has a great deal of company.

On the bright side, look at what we do already know. Even if indictments aren’t handed down soon, we know there is PROOF that the FBI, with help with some in the DOJ, State Department, CIA and the media, and even some senators and members of Congress perpetrated a fraud to influence the 2016 election and sabotage Trump’s presidency. We even know that Obama and Biden were present at a meeting about at least one aspect of that sabotage, that of framing Michael Flynn.

But that makes it even more frustrating when Durham says his report might not be out before the election. At this point, months of additional delay would be absurd. Those who directed and led the soft coup against the Trump administration must be exposed and indicted, or our legal system is a joke. Or, as Carter put it, “We will no longer be the nation based on the principles of justice and liberty we believe ourselves to be but something altogether different.”

As we near the election, we see leftists trying to MAKE us into something altogether different. Indictments of those who perpetrated this fraud are the appropriate way to push back and show that’s not going to happen.

TWO AMERICAS

To the left, the ongoing violence in cities like New York, Chicago, Portland, and Seattle has nothing to do with Democrat officials forcing police to let radicals run roughshod, destroying property and threatening citizens and cops. No, there’s always someone else to blame: Republicans, the NRA, and now in Portland, Donald Trump’s “federal goons” who are allegedly arresting “peaceful protesters” and driving them away in unmarked vans.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/portland-official-slams-mayor-claims-police-and-trump-goon-squad-target-protesters

And here’s who those federal officers actually are…

https://www.westernjournal.com/lefts-fear-mongering-secret-police-narrative-shattered-turns-viral-portland-arrest-trumps-new-pact-force/

Across America, police are being assaulted, insulted, and even killed.

Meanwhile, the president of Black Lives Matter in New York City says those cops are just “crying” and “acting like a bunch of big babies.” I don’t think babies are famous for being able to exhibit such a superhuman amount of self-control.

https://www.foxnews.com/media/hawk-newsome-kilmeade-cops-black-lives-matter

The Democrat officials in places like Portland insist the protests are “peaceful.” Here’s what’s actually happening…

So how can people look at these situations and see them in such radically different terms? I don’t know but I think this sums up the current moment well. We here at MikeHuckabee.com have obtained exclusive footage of a law enforcement official reassuring the public that authorities have the peaceful protests completely under control and need no help from President Trump.

FEDERAL JUDGE'S FAMILY SHOT, SON KILLED

In New Jersey, someone posing as a Fed Ex driver came to Federal Judge Esther Salas’ home and shot her husband and 20-year-old son. Her son was killed. The judge was in the basement at the time and was unharmed. This is a developing story, and the FBI is on the case. I’ll have more when we know more.

GOYA BOYCOTT UPDATE

About that AOC-led boycott of Goya because their CEO praised President Trump’s initiative to help create Hispanic-American jobs? Yeah, it’s still not going too well.

FOUNDERS WERE HEROES

More proof that you shouldn’t be afraid to say what you believe. Chances are, most people agree with you.

SOME CALIFORNIA CHURCHES ARE DEFYING THE GOVERNOR

Some churches in California are defying Gov. Gavin Newsom’s unconstitutional ban on holding services, even though they’re taking extreme precautions, more so than businesses allowed to stay open (taking temperatures at the door, passing out masks, offering an outdoor worship alternative, social distancing, 25% capacity, etc.)

More power to them. And this may hearten them in their fight: in Virginia, a pastor who was hit with criminal charges and threatened with up to a year in jail for holding services saw those charges dropped for no stated reason.

Maybe the reason is that out-of-control Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam realized how that case would go once it got in front of a judge and jury that had actually heard of the First Amendment. This is a case where the legal system, used for so long by leftists as a weapon against the people, is now protecting the people from power-mad leftists. And the church is still pressing its legal rights with the help of the Liberty Counsel, suing Northam for discrimination for raiding their church for having 16 people in a 250-seat church (six over the “crowd” limit) while he exempted other organizations and even encouraged and participated in mass anti-police/BLM protests.

The Trump DOJ has filed a statement of interest in the case on behalf of the church. I’ll also be very interested to see how this comes out, and if the churches in California decide to call up the Liberty Counsel, too.

THE STATE OF THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE

I keep telling people that most public political polls are meaningless, and those taken this far from an election are less than meaningless. But the media keep hyping the “Biden’s double-digit lead” angle to make it seem as if the election were over (I find it odd that Americans have had multiple chances over the past four decades to make Joe Biden President, but only now that he’s nearing 80 have they shown the slightest interest in the prospect.)

All this has many Trump supporters worried. Combined with the relentless daily media assault on Trump, the blame heaped on him for a virus unleashed on the world by China that his China-appeasing opponents have done everything in their power to prolong, and the right-on-cue riots and racial division that Democrats desperately need to keep minorities from noticing how much worse they have fared under Democrats for the past half-century-plus, they fear Trump’s chances of reelection are slipping.

The media refuse to report what he says honestly (look at the wild misrepresentation of his Mount Rushmore speech), and he can’t hold his rallies to fire up enthusiasm. I suspect, however, that Trump supporters are a lot more enthusiastic than they’re letting on or than is being reported. A Trump bumper sticker might get your car vandalized, but once inside the voting booth, that might just make people punch that “Trump” button all the harder.

Still, the recent shake-up in Trump’s campaign organization shows that he knows some adjustments are needed. One thing that would help would be for him to get off defense and back on offense. Remind people how he actually kept his campaign promises in 2016 to bring troops home, renegotiate bad trade deals, stand up to China, make our allies keep their commitments, bring our troops home, crush ISIS and enforce immigration laws (when he wasn’t being hamstrung by a million lawsuits and out-of-control federal judges), not to target legal immigrants but to keep illegal immigration from undermining American jobs and wages. He promised to create jobs and boost economic growth, and he did.

Trump promised to cut two regulations for every new one, and as Liz Peek at Fox News notes, he’s actually cut eight. Under Obama/Biden, the Federal Register reached an all-time record 97,110 pages. They added 3,853 new rules, of which 629 were flagged as having notable effects on small businesses. Under Trump, the number of federal regulations is the lowest since the 1970s, resulting in record low unemployment in virtually every demographic group, “and in early 2019, hourly wages rose 3.4 percent over the year before, the highest rate in 10 years.”

Trump built an economy so strong, it took a virtual biological attack by China to cripple it, but even now, it’s already surging back. Trump needs to hammer the point that if you want the economy to expire like a senior citizen in a New York public nursing home, then put Joe Biden and the Democrats, with their quack remedies of huge taxes, more regulations, big government and nonexistent “green jobs” back in power.

Trump also needs to build on his great Mount Rushmore speech that’s been deliberately misconstrued, to remind us again and again that we have been bequeathed a great nation and a Constitution and economic system that are the envy of the world, and Americans of every race, creed and gender can succeed when we follow the path the Founders laid out and work together.

Kurt Schlichter has a must-read column outlining 21 second-term promises that he thinks Trump should make, to outline a positive vision the way he did in 2016. When I say it’s a must-read, that means I hope President Trump reads it, too, since there are some great ideas in here. If voters think about the nation that these ideas could lead to, and compare it to the possible Ghost-of-America’s-Future under Democrats that we can see right now in Portland, Seattle, New York City or Chicago, I can’t imagine how anyone who could pass a cognitive test would want to vote for Biden.

FAKE NEWS MONDAY

Fake News Monday: A scare story swept the Internet that officials in Nueces County, Texas, (Corpus Christi) reported a sudden surge of 85 coronavirus cases in babies under age one in one day. It was later clarified that it was a total of 85 babies under age two (separate source) who tested positive for the virus over the 4-1/2 months since March. There is no surge in infections of babies. Only one baby who tested positive during the time died, but that child showed unrelated symptoms, and the actual cause of death has still not been determined.

While any death of a baby is a horrible tragedy (and I wish I could get everyone to agree with that), just for perspective, the CDC reports that between February 1 and July 11th, 11,146 children aged 0-14 died in the US. Of those, 31 were classified as COVID-19 deaths, although it’s not clear whether they died of or simply with the virus.

    They CANNOT wait until AFTER the election to bring out information..because the democrats will destroy everything they have found out..it will never be available to anyone!! Is Barr really on the side for justice? If so, he and Durham need to get it out NOW!!!

    Amazing how we have gone to the far side of the world to end terrorism, yet it is now flourishing in the USA under the Guise of "peaceful Protests" .
    I really think the Mayor of Portland is a member of Antifa, and just like AOC and the "squad" have worked his way into a position to try and destroy the USA from within. This has got to stop. I will be donating more than ever this year to help true American Conservatives replace these people.

    This is probably irrelevant but Google seems to be helping the Covid19 cause. If you ask Google how many new cases of COVID using any 3 digit number (example 980) it will automatically come up with a state and county where there are that many new cases. It doesn't matter what 3 digit number you use it will come up with an answer. I hope people aren't gullible enough to fall for this and why in the world would Google lie?

    1. I will lose whatever faith that I have in the justice system if those involved with targeting the President are not brought to justice.
    2. Governor Newsom is out of control.
    3. President Trump has to start winning the propaganda war. The press will not be fair so bypass them with public events to inform and showcase successes.

    Governor: I think Sara Carter and others need to start investigating AG Barr and Durham. The only reason there are no arrests and charges NOW with all this evidence is because something is stopping Barr. Could it be a buyoff from Soros? or threats of suicide against he or his family from Clinton?
    It is becoming painfully clear that he and Durham have an agenda not in the best interests of truth coming out. Very sad.

    The democrat proven lies and hoax of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia was a large success for them. The democrats' corruption changed the mind of at least 17 percent of the voters and corruption helped the democrats win a majority in the House in the 2018 mid-term election. Release of Durham's investigation of the democrats' corruption to materially influence the 2018 mid-term election is justice. No good reason exists to postpone justice until after the election.

    First, I am really sick and tired of these FAKE news stories. Thank you for clarifying about the babies that got sick with the coronavirus in Texas. I was just mentioning this FAKE story to my husband so was relieved that it was not accurate. The last thing is that I along with many other Americans am completely fed up and frustrated with the lack of movement regarding the Attorney John Durham's report or indictments for criminal action. To have Attorney General Barr say that Durham's investigation may not be completed until after the election is TOTALLY OUTRAGIOUS. The corruption that has been uncovered is staggering with tons and tons and tons of written proof of the Democrats desire to overthrow President Trump and put innocent people in jail. This is HIGH TREASON and should be treated that way. After years of all of these investigations, lies, impeachment attempts there is so much proof of top intelligence heads that lied to the Courts etc. etc. etc. that I am truly disgusted that Durham's investigation has not been completed yet. To even insinuate that waiting until after the election to produce the results of this investigation is somehow less political is TOTALLY ABSURB!!! The American people DESERVE TO KNOW THE TRUTH BEFORE THE ELECTION so they can make an informed decision. I hate to say this but what side is Barr and Durham on???? I really hope that this investigation will be completed by Labor Day or sooner. The Republicans blow their nose and get put in jail but the Democrats from Obama/Biden/Hillary on down can get away with HIGH CRIMES is unbelievable! Our nation needs a lot of prayer and divine intervention!

Also, Sara Carter is (again, as always) spot on in her summation of the Barr/Durham investigation and its ongoing repercussions and lack of actual indictments. In spite of ALL the evidence which has trickled out, Democrats, the mainstream media, and the VITRIOLIC Trump-haters continue to deny the evidence shown in black & white, presenting their own fantasy version of reality.

    In my worthless opinion, it's long past time for POTUS & AG to begin making arrests and charging people under 18 US CODE 115 section 2381 (Treason) and 2383 (Rebellion or insurrection) and 2384 (Seditious conspiracy). The longer these people get away with it, the less likely we are to be able to contain it without a full blown blood running in the streets (un)civil war. In fact, lest I risk being charged under section 2382, I am now writing letters to both of them asking for the arrests of the traitors to begin. Nancy P. saying that whether he knows it or not, Trump IS leaving the White House and she's prepared to use the Continuation [sic] of Government to make sure it happens was the last straw for me. She IS a traitor and she IS inciting rebellion/insurrection, along with AOC and a whole bunch of other low-lifes in government positions.

    Mr. Huckabee,
    Let's do some supposing here for a second. Let's suppose that Durham does not complete his investigation until after the election. Let's suppose there is ample evidence to crucify several of those in the deep state who have been under investigation. And then AFTER the election Barr brings indictments against them.
    Now let us suppose that Biden wins the election(I shudder at the thought). How far will he get in prosecuting them before Jan 20 when Biden takes office? How long will Barr be the Attorney General after Biden (his string pullers actually) take office?
    It is very dangerous to delay the investigation and indictments.
    If it is delayed until after the election we can assume that Durham and Barr are part of the charade and their goal is to put everything off as long as possible in order to avoid having to put any of their crony's in the hoosegow, and also to give Biden a better chance to win the election.

    Sir,
    I agree with 99% of what you are saying . However a suggestion. Why can't the Republicans mount a STRONG campaign against the media misinformation? There has to be somewhere a newspaper/ media outlet that will print or tell (with proof) the truth. A long time ago when I was in the Air Force (22 years), I gave a speech at Air University concerning "10 easy steps to overthrow a government". It was meant to be a speech to convince people to believe what I was saying. I NEVER mentioned the name of a country, however what I did do was research newspapers, history etc and came up with documented proof that what I was saying could very easily accomplish the downfall of a government. By "coincident" everything I said was happening to the United States at that time. After the speech, I was directly told that I was to "forget" everything in that speech and to NEVER give it again. I was told this by some pretty high ranking individuals and civilians. What I see today is EXACTLY what I said in my speech. Newspapers and the media are telling half truths and outright lies. People are turning against one another because of political differences. Armed gangs are roaming the street of American cities and the government is afraid to stop them. (If the local governments won't or can't stop them, then the Federal Government has a responsibility to step in and stop it.) Our Federal Government is SUPPOSED to protect ALL citizens (no matter what their ethnic group) against foreign and domestic threats. I, along with thousands of others, spent 20+ years defending our country in foreign wars. Its just plain wrong to let what's happening, happen to our country. I am an old man with old fashioned beliefs in what our country stands for(or should I say, used to stand for.) I am also a retired high school teacher and I know what's being taught in our schools today by liberal minded teachers. I talking both high schools and college. They are now talking about doing away with the National Anthem. You've got to be kidding! Lets get back to the idea that "the majority rules" mind set and stop these idiots (of all kinds) from tearing this country apart.

    Someone on our neighborhood forum was complaining that people were not wearing masks at the farmer’s market. He wanted police to be there to deny entrance to those not wearing masks. A few others and I tried to defend our freedom by explaining why it shouldn’t be mandatory to wear a mask. The discussion was long and those liberals were getting nasty. One mentioned that when Ghislane started singing that Trump would be in jail. I spoke up and said no it would be Bill Clinton and the like. I also said I couldn’t wait until John Durham started indicting people like Comey, Brennan, Clapper and Hillary and putting them in jail. She came back and said that will never happen. I started to agree with her because in my entire life I have not seen the corrupt Democrats get what they deserve. Then I was thinking that if John Durham doesn’t start indicting soon there may not be time for a trial before the election. I believe that someone needs to go to jail because of the coup before the election in order for some on the left to start believing there was/is a coup. I realize there will be many on the left will never believe their people are corrupt, but I believe it will change the minds of some more moderate leftists.

    When I was out driving today, I was listening to conservative Talk Radio and Rush Limbaugh was on. A young man called in, saying he was a Democrat in California and he and a lot of his Democrat friends [who voted for Hillary in the last election] will be voting for Trump in November. So maybe the polls that say that Biden is going to win in the next election are skewed after all!
