The FBI and January 6: a follow-up

By Mike Huckabee

A number of news and opinion forums, including our own, picked up on this week's story by REVOLVER NEWS about the FBI’s role in the January 6 “insurrection” on Capitol Hill. We and a few others called for questions to be answered, but most in the mainstream media misreported the story in an effort to dismiss it.

(In case you didn’t see our first report, it’s in the June 16 Morning Edition, “Hard Questions Remain about January 6 and the FBI.”)

Some commentators were intrigued. Bestselling author and “Dilbert” creator Scott Adams, in his “Coffee With Scott Adams” podcast, saw Tucker Carlson’s segment with the reporter from REVOLVER NEWS on Tuesday and briefly summarized that. He called it “a weird coincidence” that a number of domestic terror attacks had involved FBI assets or informants. “The suggestion is,” he said, “maybe they were doing more than just watching ‘em, Maybe they’re participating a little bit too much. Maybe they’re even prodding people to do something that they wouldn’t necessarily have done, or maybe not done as soon.”

Adams addressed Carlson’s main point of contention; namely, that there were unindicted co-conspirators involved in the January 6 “insurrection” who, curiously, have not been indicted. One likely reason for this, of course, is that they are informants or have some previous relationship with law enforcement. Adams also mentioned what we’d reported about the over 10,000 hours of security video that is still being withheld from public view.

“Maybe one of the reasons is that we’d see something they don’t want us to see,” Adams said. I don’t know.”

He said he had a hard time believing that someone from the FBI could talk someone into doing an actual terror attack. At the same time, he’s amused by the characterization of this security breach as an “insurrection,” saying it might also be called “a demonstration of free speech that went a little too far.”

“Somewhere in between is probably the truth,” he said. And that seems right to me. It definitely was a demonstration of free speech, and it definitely went too far. But then this question arises: at the time the Trump supporters were organizing it –- with or without help from the FBI –- did they anticipate at all that it would go THAT far and be painted as an act of terror? Certainly they had no idea that an unarmed woman might end up dead. (We can’t say the same for the FBI, unfortunately, if indeed they were a driving force.)

“But I think you’d have to put that in the ‘speculation’ category,” Adams continued. Yes, and that’s exactly what REVOLVER did. Adams hasn’t bought into the FBI’s involvement at this point, but he acknowledged that “there are legitimate questions. And those questions do lean in that direction. There’s no doubt about that.” He allowed for the possibility of another explanation, and he noted that the “pattern” of bad FBI behavior might not be as consistent as it seems in the story. Just because we haven’t seen the answers, he said, doesn’t necessarily mean the hypothesis of FBI involvement is correct.

He said Tucker’s segment, and the REVOLVER story that inspired it, did a credible job of laying out the circumstantial evidence for this and is “good work.”

“Don’t get too far ahead of the fact,” Adams cautioned, “but this is a good frame [as in, a well-structured argument]. We should understand this. The fact that it looks so damning --- that’s all you need to look into it a little further. But I’m not quite on the conspiracy side of this yet.”

Tucker Carlson opened his Wednesday night show with a brief follow-up report on Tuesday’s “insurrection” story. He pointed out that no event in media history has ever been used to greater partisan political effect: “Because of January 6, our attorney general told us this week, we’ve got to change our country forever.” He commented that before REVOLVER NEWS published their report on Monday, “we had no idea that at least 20 organizers and participants in the events at the Capitol have not been indicted, despite the nationwide dragnet for people who were there.”

The government obviously knows who they are. Why aren’t they being charged with crimes? The suggestion made by REVOLVER, and supported by their detailed analysis of another act of domestic terrorism, the attempted kidnaping three months before of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, is that they had, in Tucker’s words, “some connection to the government.” It appears that they were in contact with the FBI beforehand.

We don’t have proof that the FBI spurred on the "insurrection," but, again, the circumstantial evidence is compelling, and we know the FBI is fully capable of creating a scandal themselves, with, gosh, nothing more than a flimsy, fictional Russian “dossier.” And as Tucker said on Tuesday, “It’s hard to think of a bigger potential scandal than this one.”

He noted that clips of his original report have circulated on social media --- “the Tech monopolies that helped get Joe Biden elected” --- which still work closely with the Biden administration to control the flow of information you’re allowed to see. “They tried to make me go away,” he said. In fact, Twitter actually inserted itself by pretending to be the arbiter of truth and “explaining” what was “wrong” with his report: “Federal law does not permit cooperating witnesses or informants to be charged with conspiracy,” Twitter lectured, “despite a baseless suggestion by Tucker Carlson that some co-conspirators of the January 5 attack on the U.S. Capitol were not charged because they were undercover FBI agents.”

“Baseless”? Well, Tucker pointed out that in trying to dismiss his report, they actually helped confirm it by suggesting that people who weren’t charged were cooperating witnesses or informants.

We’ll take Tucker’s refutation of Twitter even further: Cooperating witnesses who don’t get indicted are typically lower-level actors who are testifying to help the FBI bring down the “big fish.” In this case, from what we can tell, the unindicted co-conspirators ARE the “big fish,” while the little fish are the ones being aggressively prosecuted. In the Whitmer case, the REVOLVER report shows quite plainly that the people involved in the attempted kidnaping of Gov. Whitmer but who were not indicted were the ones in leadership roles. And that’s just not how “cooperation with the FBI” works within a normal investigation. It’s the little fish that get thrown back, not the big ones.

I know Twitter is just trying to help –- with the Democrats’ narrative, that is –- but they need to just stay out.

We scanned other media reports of the REVOLVER story and Tucker’s Tuesday night show and saw a pattern. They chose to inaccurately characterize this as an out-and-out accusation of the FBI and then go after that. Typical “straw man” argument. I’ll venture to speak for everyone who’s curious about the FBI’s role on January 6: All we want at this point is to be able to ask some questions, and, if we ask really, really nicely, maybe to see the security footage that’s still being withheld.


Laugh Of The Day

By Mike Huckabee

It was reported that the Women’s March, which promoted the idea of a huge wealth tax with the slogan “Billionaires shouldn’t exist,” benefitted from $245 million given to its partners by billionaire George Soros.

Headline Of The Day!

By Mike Huckabee

From a story about the G7 summit on the satirical site, The Babylon Bee:

“People Who Ruined World's Economies Gather To Discuss How To Fix World's Economies”

https://babylonbee.com/news/people-who-ruined-worlds-economies-gather-to-discuss-how-to-fix-worlds-economies

But I have to admit, the New York Times might be right: this story is called satire, but it really isn’t satire. It’s actually just a news story, only written much more honestly.


The Good Old High School Days

By Mike Huckabee

I remember when high school proms used to have themes like “We’ve Only Just Begun” or “Kiss Today Goodbye.” But in 2021, the theme for some high school proms seems to be “Hysterical Totalitarian Idiocy” (I hope that looks better in the yearbooks than it sounds.) If you thought the ban on dancing in the movie “Footloose” was silly, wait until you read about the draconian, COVID panic-inspired, CCP-style prom night in Exeter, New Hampshire.

https://www.westernjournal.com/high-school-marks-unvaccinated-students-prom-forces-identify/

What could be worse? How about a high school graduation ceremony where attendees were forced to endure a speech by a local radical school official who used the occasion to denounce America, capitalism, individualism and objectivity and promote racist “anti-racism,” social justice, “equity” and jihad. She also gave a shout-out to the class president, who'd led the Pledge of Allegiance by calling the US “one nation under Allah.”

https://www.dailywire.com/news/dem-tells-high-school-grads-theyre-entering-capitalism-white-supremacy-remember-jihad-reject-objectivity

Incidentally, this is the same school board member who was going to receive an award from a local Jewish group, but it was rescinded due to her tweets accusing Israel of being colonizers and an apartheid state, of killing Palestinians and of “desecrating the Holy Land.”:

Still wonder why so many Americans now call putting your kids into public school a form of child abuse?


Biden DOJ To Investigate Trump DOJ

By Mike Huckabee

You can certainly tell the Democrats are back in power with the announcement that the Biden Department of “Justice” will investigate...(no, not the violent communist radicals of Antifa...) the Trump Department of Justice.

https://www.westernjournal.com/bidens-doj-announces-opening-probe-trumps-doj/

They want to investigate the way the Trump DOJ investigated Congress members such as Eric Swalwell and Adam Schiff who were suspected of leaking classified information to the media. You’d think that an actual Department of Justice would be more concerned with investigating the leaks of classified information. (Ironically, this relates to a partisan investigation of Trump that was found to be groundless, but that never stopped the Democrats from launching another partisan investigation and another and another…)

From the story:

“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the effort to track down leakers was ‘yet another egregious assault on our democracy waged by the former president.’ Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois said they want (former Attorney General Bill) Barr and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appear before Congress to answer questions about the issue. ‘This appalling politicization of the Department of Justice by Donald Trump and his sycophants must be investigated immediately by both the DOJ Inspector General and Congress,’ they said in a statement.”

And if anyone knows about the appalling politicization of government agencies, it’s those two.

But as long as we’re digging into how the DOJ’s of past Administrations investigated alleged leakers of classified information, why stop with Trump’s alleged “egregious assault on our democracy”? How about the Obama DOJ that secretly obtained phone and email records from reporter James Rosen to try to identify his source for a story on North Korea, or that spied on the records from more than 20 phone lines of A.P. reporters to try to find out their source for a story from Yemen?

That sparked bipartisan outrage at the time over Obama’s “unprecedented war on journalism.” But while Obama later backtracked and promised a change in policy, at the time he said he would make “no apologies” for investigations into national security-related leaks. As Yahoo News reported in 2013, “The Obama administration has prosecuted twice as many leakers as all previous administrations combined.”

Reporters at least have the First Amendment freedom of the press to protect them. What special provisions in the law prevent the investigation of Congress members who are suspected of leaking classified information? I’ll pass along the answer to that as soon as Chuck or Nancy call me with it.


House GOP pushes To Censure Ilhan Omar

By Mike Huckabee

House Republicans are renewing their push to censure Rep. Ilhan Omar and her fellow “Squad” members for their recent false attacks on Israel, their comparisons of the US and Israel to the Taliban, and more specifically, for publicly supporting the actions of Hamas, a recognized terrorist group.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/republican-resolution-censure-ilhan-omar-squad-israel-comments

I’m glad they’re doing it because it’s the right thing to do, and attention needs to be drawn to her outrageous comments. But don’t expect it to pass because Speaker Pelosi seems too cowed by the Squad and their far-left constituency to do anything substantive to rein them in. Also, she seems to have difficulty these days telling the difference between actual terrorists and Trump supporters.

POLL:  Do you agree?  Should she be censured by Congress and removed from her committee assignments for these extreme, untrue views?

    Dear Sir, I truly feel the only way for good & lasting change is Term Limits. A nation wide push by We The People could & should make this Happen. If you want to drain a swamp, get rid of the oldest, deepest, roots first. I pray, We The
    People, will make this a National Vote by 2022. I deeply respect your bravery, your desire for honesty & your love of God and Family. God Bless Sir, Mack

    Adams is dancing all over the place, doesn't want his name on the "LIST". Jan 6th was a false flag orchestrated attack to soil America First Patriots that love their Country, They were infiltrated by Oathkeepers, Proud Boys, ANTIFA, Ukrainians. The Oathkeepers and Proud Boys both have a history of working for the FBI on clandestine operations. So stop dancing and stand up for our fellow American Patriots Mike!!!

    Does any one in this country trust our government agencies? The Communists in the MSM and our Oval Office's roster, what it has done is to bring distrust in our agencies the FBI raids the IRS our DOJ's lack of balance in Justice of course the President and its VP I wouldn't be able to employ any of the Cabinet members or heads of the Departments they are un-trust worthy, incompetent, corrupt and would steal anything it could. and it probably gets worse when you look into their private life I would be afraid to open those doors.

    I have watched every clip possible on the Jan 6th 'incident'. The THOUSANDS of patriots that were there were almost all PEACEFULLY supporting our president, with prayer and true patriotism. Some standing nearby actually even tried to stop some of the vandals that were trying to break windows and doors. MOST started leaving when they saw something was happening and Trump asked people to leave peacefully. There was NO DOUBT, in my mind, that those who were 'breaking in' were behaving, mostly, just like Antifa operatives. They did not respect the flag or anyone else, such as law enforcement, and that IS NOT what most patriots act like! Indeed, I was told by a young man that Antifa was openly recruiting members to attend and disrupt the Jan. 6th meeting days before it occurred! There are some great video clips of the thousands of patriots on Jan. 6th. The media and the leftists in government that have managed to secure their positions even though it is debatable that the election was not stolen, and the FBI too, have now cast an overall mistrust in our government's obedience to rule of law. Personally, the FBI, an agency that I once looked to as some of my heroes, is the last place I would call to report any suspected foul play. This is not just my suspicions or any theory. Look at the FBI's recorded acts for the last 10 to 15 yrs or so. Look at what the present DOJ office and other agencies are now saying. Good American citizens are being targeted, not the criminals. I am beginning to feel ashamed for my country.

    Human trafficking is slavery to both the people/organizations that 'hire' them at below average wages and to the cartels that they 'owe' their wages to for their transportation to the border. Also addiction to the drugs being brought through the nonexistent border is slavery to those drugs (this is knowledge from past experience).

    Two points. First there are cases in history where groups of people can be transformed into mobs in mass hysteria. You need look no further than Germans reacting to a Hitler speech. Next with the DOJ investigations and the new see something, say something. Is AG Garland becoming the US’s Himmler?

  • Cheryl Breon

    06/17/2021 02:24 PM

    I am still confused as I've heard that some of the "protestors" who were at the Trump rally have been rounded up and put in solitary confinement??!! That, to me, is torture and should be reserved for the worst of the worst yet I think they put General Flynn in there and it's just horrific to think they are relishing doing this to any Trump supporters. Could you enlighten me? Thanks.

    I think that the more moderate citizens of this country need to start on the local level to combat this Marxist takeover brewing. By that I mean to start replacing school boards with thinking, sensible people as well as city councils, mayors and state legislatures. This subjugation of young children to the way left agenda is resulting in segregation by race, and loss of school time that needs to be used for real education. This will also cause the loss of good teachers whose conscience will not allow them to be part of the brain washing. The Dems are creating hatred and division, far surpassing anything done by the Trump administration. Every school board that promotes, or allows CRT to be taught should be replaced as fast as possible. Furthermore, it is not necessary for very young children to be knowledgeable about sexual orientation or the functioning of sexual organs. Children can be taught to respect others and people who are different quite easily without going into details. The private schools are easier to control, just withdraw the students and thus the money. The one room school house was not doubt far superior to anything we now have in place.

    If the Independents and GOP do not come out to vote in droves in the 2022 elections we will soon be just another mediocre country at best and fully Marxist at worst in a very short time. “If good people do nothing…………………”. What scares me is that middle America probably doesn’t know what is really going on. Controlling information is the best resource the left has to foment their way of life.

    You know there is an old saying Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned . Even though she's half a decade older then him the way Nancy Pelosi keeps carping about Trump I'm beginning to think they must have been an item when they were younger and he dumped her. Just saying...

    The FBI and January 6: a follow-up

    By Mike Huckabee

    A number of news and opinion forums, including our own, picked up on this week's story by REVOLVER NEWS about the FBI’s role in the January 6 “insurrection” on Capitol Hill. We and a few others called for questions to be answered, but most in the mainstream media misreported the story in an effort to dismiss it.

    (In case you didn’t see our first report, it’s in the June 16 Morning Edition, “Hard Questions Remain about January 6 and the FBI.”)

Bestselling author and “Dilbert” creator Scott Adams, in his “Coffee With Scott Adams” podcast, saw Tucker Carlson’s segment with the reporter from REVOLVER NEWS on Tuesday and briefly summarized that.

    That sparked bipartisan outrage at the time over Obama’s “unprecedented war on journalism.” But while Obama later backtracked and promised a change in policy, at the time he said he would make “no apologies” for investigations into national security-related leaks. As Yahoo News reported in 2013, “The Obama administration has prosecuted twice as many leakers as all previous administrations combined.”

    Reporters at least have the First Amendment freedom of the press to protect them. What special provisions in the law prevent the investigation of Congress members who are suspected of leaking classified information? I’ll pass along the answer to that as soon as Chuck or Nancy call me with it.


    House GOP pushes To Censure Ilhan Omar

    By Mike Huckabee

    House Republicans are renewing their push to censure Rep. Ilhan Omar and her fellow “Squad” members for their recent false attacks on Israel, their comparisons of the US and Israel to the Taliban, and more specifically, for publicly supporting the actions of Hamas, a recognized terrorist group.

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/republican-resolution-censure-ilhan-omar-squad-israel-comments

    I’m glad they’re doing it because it’s the right thing to do, and attention needs to be drawn to her outrageous comments. But don’t expect it to pass because Speaker Pelosi seems too cowed by the Squad and their far-left constituency to do anything substantive to rein them in. Also, she seems to have difficulty these days telling the difference between actual terrorists and Trump supporters.

    POLL:  Do you agree?  Should she be censured by Congress and removed from her committee assignments for these extreme, untrue views?

      Adams is dancing all over the place, doesn't want his name on the "LIST". Jan 6th was a false flag orchestrated attack to soil America First Patriots that love their Country, They were infiltrated by Oathkeepers, Proud Boys, ANTIFA, Ukrainians. The Oathkeepers and Proud Boys both have a history of working for the FBI on clandestine operations. So stop dancing and stand up for our fellow American Patriots Mike!!!

      Does any one in this country trust our government agencies? The Communists in the MSM and our Oval Office's roster, what it has done is to bring distrust in our agencies the FBI raids the IRS our DOJ's lack of balance in Justice of course the President and its VP I wouldn't be able to employ any of the Cabinet members or heads of the Departments they are un-trust worthy, incompetent, corrupt and would steal anything it could. and it probably gets worse when you look into their private life I would be afraid to open those doors.

      I have watched every clip possible on the Jan 6th 'incident'. The THOUSANDS of patriots that were there were almost all PEACEFULLY supporting our president, with prayer and true patriotism. Some standing nearby actually even tried to stop some of the vandals that were trying to break windows and doors. MOST started leaving when they saw something was happening and Trump asked people to leave peacefully. There was NO DOUBT, in my mind, that those who were 'breaking in' were behaving, mostly, just like Antifa operatives. They did not respect the flag or anyone else, such as law enforcement, and that IS NOT what most patriots act like! Indeed, I was told by a young man that Antifa was openly recruiting members to attend and disrupt the Jan. 6th meeting days before it occurred! There are some great video clips of the thousands of patriots on Jan. 6th. The media and the leftists in government that have managed to secure their positions even though it is debatable that the election was not stolen, and the FBI too, have now cast an overall mistrust in our government's obedience to rule of law. Personally, the FBI, an agency that I once looked to as some of my heroes, is the last place I would call to report any suspected foul play. This is not just my suspicions or any theory. Look at the FBI's recorded acts for the last 10 to 15 yrs or so. Look at what the present DOJ office and other agencies are now saying. Good American citizens are being targeted, not the criminals. I am beginning to feel ashamed for my country.

      Human trafficking is slavery to both the people/organizations that 'hire' them at below average wages and to the cartels that they 'owe' their wages to for their transportation to the border. Also addiction to the drugs being brought through the nonexistent border is slavery to those drugs (this is knowledge from past experience).

      Two points. First there are cases in history where groups of people can be transformed into mobs in mass hysteria. You need look no further than Germans reacting to a Hitler speech. Next with the DOJ investigations and the new see something, say something. Is AG Garland becoming the US’s Himmler?

That, to me, is torture and should be reserved for the worst of the worst yet I think they put General Flynn in there and it's just horrific to think they are relishing doing this to any Trump supporters. Could you enlighten me? Thanks.

      I think that the more moderate citizens of this country need to start on the local level to combat this Marxist takeover brewing. By that I mean to start replacing school boards with thinking, sensible people as well as city councils, mayors and state legislatures. This subjugation of young children to the way left agenda is resulting in segregation by race, and loss of school time that needs to be used for real education. This will also cause the loss of good teachers whose conscience will not allow them to be part of the brain washing. The Dems are creating hatred and division, far surpassing anything done by the Trump administration. Every school board that promotes, or allows CRT to be taught should be replaced as fast as possible. Furthermore, it is not necessary for very young children to be knowledgeable about sexual orientation or the functioning of sexual organs. Children can be taught to respect others and people who are different quite easily without going into details. The private schools are easier to control, just withdraw the students and thus the money. The one room school house was not doubt far superior to anything we now have in place.

      If the Independents and GOP do not come out to vote in droves in the 2022 elections we will soon be just another mediocre country at best and fully Marxist at worst in a very short time. “If good people do nothing…………………”. What scares me is that middle America probably doesn’t know what is really going on. Controlling information is the best resource the left has to foment their way of life.

    The FBI and January 6: a follow-up

    By Mike Huckabee

    A number of news and opinion forums, including our own, picked up on this week's story by REVOLVER NEWS about the FBI’s role in the January 6 “insurrection” on Capitol Hill. We and a few others called for questions to be answered, but most in the mainstream media misreported the story in an effort to dismiss it.

    (In case you didn’t see our first report, it’s in the June 16 Morning Edition, “Hard Questions Remain about January 6 and the FBI.”)

    Some commentators were intrigued. Bestselling author and “Dilbert” creator Scott Adams, in his “Coffee With Scott Adams” podcast, saw Tucker Carlson’s segment with the reporter from REVOLVER NEWS on Tuesday and briefly summarized that. He called it “a weird coincidence” that a number of domestic terror attacks had involved FBI assets or informants. “The suggestion is,” he said, “maybe they were doing more than just watching ‘em, Maybe they’re participating a little bit too much. Maybe they’re even prodding people to do something that they wouldn’t necessarily have done, or maybe not done as soon.”

    Adams addressed Carlson’s main point of contention; namely, that there were unindicted co-conspirators involved in the January 6 “insurrection” who, curiously, have not been indicted. One likely reason for this, of course, is that they are informants or have some previous relationship with law enforcement. Adams also mentioned what we’d reported about the over 10,000 hours of security video that is still being withheld from public view.

    “Maybe one of the reasons is that we’d see something they don’t want us to see,” Adams said. I don’t know.”

    He said he had a hard time believing that someone from the FBI could talk someone into doing an actual terror attack. At the same time, he’s amused by the characterization of this security breach as an “insurrection,” saying it might also be called “a demonstration of free speech that went a little too far.”

    “Somewhere in between is probably the truth,” he said. And that seems right to me. It definitely was a demonstration of free speech, and it definitely went too far. But then this question arises: at the time the Trump supporters were organizing it –- with or without help from the FBI –- did they anticipate at all that it would go THAT far and be painted as an act of terror? Certainly they had no idea that an unarmed woman might end up dead. (We can’t say the same for the FBI, unfortunately, if indeed they were a driving force.)

    “But I think you’d have to put that in the ‘speculation’ category,” Adams continued. Yes, and that’s exactly what REVOLVER did. Adams hasn’t bought into the FBI’s involvement at this point, but he acknowledged that “there are legitimate questions. And those questions do lean in that direction. There’s no doubt about that.” He allowed for the possibility of another explanation, and he noted that the “pattern” of bad FBI behavior might not be as consistent as it seems in the story. Just because we haven’t seen the answers, he said, doesn’t necessarily mean the hypothesis of FBI involvement is correct.

    He said Tucker’s segment, and the REVOLVER story that inspired it, did a credible job of laying out the circumstantial evidence for this and is “good work.”

    “Don’t get too far ahead of the fact,” Adams cautioned, “but this is a good frame [as in, a well-structured argument]. We should understand this. The fact that it looks so damning --- that’s all you need to look into it a little further. But I’m not quite on the conspiracy side of this yet.”

    Tucker Carlson opened his Wednesday night show with a brief follow-up report on Tuesday’s “insurrection” story. He pointed out that no event in media history has ever been used to greater partisan political effect: “Because of January 6, our attorney general told us this week, we’ve got to change our country forever.” He commented that before REVOLVER NEWS published their report on Monday, “we had no idea that at least 20 organizers and participants in the events at the Capitol have not been indicted, despite the nationwide dragnet for people who were there.”

    The government obviously knows who they are. Why aren’t they being charged with crimes? The suggestion made by REVOLVER, and supported by their detailed analysis of another act of domestic terrorism, the attempted kidnaping three months before of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, is that they had, in Tucker’s words, “some connection to the government.” It appears that they were in contact with the FBI beforehand.

    We don’t have proof that the FBI spurred on the "insurrection," but, again, the circumstantial evidence is compelling, and we know the FBI is fully capable of creating a scandal themselves, with, gosh, nothing more than a flimsy, fictional Russian “dossier.” And as Tucker said on Tuesday, “It’s hard to think of a bigger potential scandal than this one.”

    He noted that clips of his original report have circulated on social media --- “the Tech monopolies that helped get Joe Biden elected” --- which still work closely with the Biden administration to control the flow of information you’re allowed to see. “They tried to make me go away,” he said. In fact, Twitter actually inserted itself by pretending to be the arbiter of truth and “explaining” what was “wrong” with his report: “Federal law does not permit cooperating witnesses or informants to be charged with conspiracy,” Twitter lectured, “despite a baseless suggestion by Tucker Carlson that some co-conspirators of the January 5 attack on the U.S. Capitol were not charged because they were undercover FBI agents.”

    “Baseless”? Well, Tucker pointed out that in trying to dismiss his report, they actually helped confirm it by suggesting that people who weren’t charged were cooperating witnesses or informants.

    We’ll take Tucker’s refutation of Twitter even further: Cooperating witnesses who don’t get indicted are typically lower-level actors who are testifying to help the FBI bring down the “big fish.” In this case, from what we can tell, the unindicted co-conspirators ARE the “big fish,” while the little fish are the ones being aggressively prosecuted. In the Whitmer case, the REVOLVER report shows quite plainly that the people involved in the attempted kidnaping of Gov. Whitmer but who were not indicted were the ones in leadership roles. And that’s just not how “cooperation with the FBI” works within a normal investigation. It’s the little fish that get thrown back, not the big ones.

    I know Twitter is just trying to help –- with the Democrats’ narrative, that is –- but they need to just stay out.

    We scanned other media reports of the REVOLVER story and Tucker’s Tuesday night show and saw a pattern. They chose to inaccurately characterize this as an out-and-out accusation of the FBI and then go after that. Typical “straw man” argument. I’ll venture to speak for everyone who’s curious about the FBI’s role on January 6: All we want at this point is to be able to ask some questions, and, if we ask really, really nicely, maybe to see the security footage that’s still being withheld.


    Laugh Of The Day

    By Mike Huckabee

    It was reported that the Women’s March, which promoted the idea of a huge wealth tax with the slogan “Billionaires shouldn’t exist,” benefitted from $245 million given to its partners by billionaire George Soros.

    https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/456209/


    Headline Of The Day!

    By Mike Huckabee

    From a story about the G7 summit on the satirical site, The Babylon Bee:

    “People Who Ruined World's Economies Gather To Discuss How To Fix World's Economies”

    https://babylonbee.com/news/people-who-ruined-worlds-economies-gather-to-discuss-how-to-fix-worlds-economies

    But I have to admit, the New York Times might be right: this story is called satire, but it really isn’t satire. It’s actually just a news story, only written much more honestly.


    The Good Old High School Days

    By Mike Huckabee

    I remember when high school proms used to have themes like “We’ve Only Just Begun” or “Kiss Today Goodbye.” But in 2021, the theme for some high school proms seems to be “Hysterical Totalitarian Idiocy” (I hope that looks better in the yearbooks than it sounds.) If you thought the ban on dancing in the movie “Footloose” was silly, wait until you read about the draconian, COVID panic-inspired, CCP-style prom night in Exeter, New Hampshire.

    https://www.westernjournal.com/high-school-marks-unvaccinated-students-prom-forces-identify/

    What could be worse? How about a high school graduation ceremony where attendees were forced to endure a speech by a local radical school official who used the occasion to denounce America, capitalism, individualism and objectivity and promote racist “anti-racism,” social justice, “equity” and jihad. She also gave a shout-out to the class president, who'd led the Pledge of Allegiance by calling the US “one nation under Allah.”

    https://www.dailywire.com/news/dem-tells-high-school-grads-theyre-entering-capitalism-white-supremacy-remember-jihad-reject-objectivity

    Incidentally, this is the same school board member who was going to receive an award from a local Jewish group, but it was rescinded due to her tweets accusing Israel of being colonizers and an apartheid state, of killing Palestinians and of “desecrating the Holy Land.”:

    https://www.dailywire.com/news/jewish-group-rescinds-award-to-politician-who-said-israel-desecrates-the-holy-land

    Still wonder why so many Americans now call putting your kids into public school a form of child abuse?


    Biden DOJ To Investigate Trump DOJ

    By Mike Huckabee

    You can certainly tell the Democrats are back in power with the announcement that the Biden Department of “Justice” will investigate...(no, not the violent communist radicals of Antifa...) the Trump Department of Justice.

    https://www.westernjournal.com/bidens-doj-announces-opening-probe-trumps-doj/

    They want to investigate the way the Trump DOJ investigated Congress members such as Eric Swalwell and Adam Schiff who were suspected of leaking classified information to the media. You’d think that an actual Department of Justice would be more concerned with investigating the leaks of classified information. (Ironically, this relates to a partisan investigation of Trump that was found to be groundless, but that never stopped the Democrats from launching another partisan investigation and another and another…)

    From the story:

    “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the effort to track down leakers was ‘yet another egregious assault on our democracy waged by the former president.’ Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois said they want (former Attorney General Bill) Barr and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appear before Congress to answer questions about the issue. ‘This appalling politicization of the Department of Justice by Donald Trump and his sycophants must be investigated immediately by both the DOJ Inspector General and Congress,’ they said in a statement.”

    And if anyone knows about the appalling politicization of government agencies, it’s those two.

    But as long as we’re digging into how the DOJ’s of past Administrations investigated alleged leakers of classified information, why stop with Trump’s alleged “egregious assault on our democracy”? How about the Obama DOJ that secretly obtained phone and email records from reporter James Rosen to try to identify his source for a story on North Korea, or that spied on the records from more than 20 phone lines of A.P. reporters to try to find out their source for a story from Yemen?

    That sparked bipartisan outrage at the time over Obama’s “unprecedented war on journalism.” But while Obama later backtracked and promised a change in policy, at the time he said he would make “no apologies” for investigations into national security-related leaks. As Yahoo News reported in 2013, “The Obama administration has prosecuted twice as many leakers as all previous administrations combined.”

    Reporters at least have the First Amendment freedom of the press to protect them. What special provisions in the law prevent the investigation of Congress members who are suspected of leaking classified information? I’ll pass along the answer to that as soon as Chuck or Nancy call me with it.

He called it “a weird coincidence” that a number of domestic terror attacks had involved FBI assets or informants. “The suggestion is,” he said, “maybe they were doing more than just watching ‘em, Maybe they’re participating a little bit too much. Maybe they’re even prodding people to do something that they wouldn’t necessarily have done, or maybe not done as soon.”

    Adams addressed Carlson’s main point of contention; namely, that there were unindicted co-conspirators involved in the January 6 “insurrection” who, curiously, have not been indicted. One likely reason for this, of course, is that they are informants or have some previous relationship with law enforcement. Adams also mentioned what we’d reported about the over 10,000 hours of security video that is still being withheld from public view.

    “Maybe one of the reasons is that we’d see something they don’t want us to see,” Adams said. I don’t know.”

    He said he had a hard time believing that someone from the FBI could talk someone into doing an actual terror attack. At the same time, he’s amused by the characterization of this security breach as an “insurrection,” saying it might also be called “a demonstration of free speech that went a little too far.”

    “Somewhere in between is probably the truth,” he said. And that seems right to me. It definitely was a demonstration of free speech, and it definitely went too far. But then this question arises: at the time the Trump supporters were organizing it –- with or without help from the FBI –- did they anticipate at all that it would go THAT far and be painted as an act of terror? Certainly they had no idea that an unarmed woman might end up dead. (We can’t say the same for the FBI, unfortunately, if indeed they were a driving force.)

    “But I think you’d have to put that in the ‘speculation’ category,” Adams continued. Yes, and that’s exactly what REVOLVER did. Adams hasn’t bought into the FBI’s involvement at this point, but he acknowledged that “there are legitimate questions. And those questions do lean in that direction. There’s no doubt about that.” He allowed for the possibility of another explanation, and he noted that the “pattern” of bad FBI behavior might not be as consistent as it seems in the story. Just because we haven’t seen the answers, he said, doesn’t necessarily mean the hypothesis of FBI involvement is correct.

    He said Tucker’s segment, and the REVOLVER story that inspired it, did a credible job of laying out the circumstantial evidence for this and is “good work.”

    “Don’t get too far ahead of the fact,” Adams cautioned, “but this is a good frame [as in, a well-structured argument]. We should understand this. The fact that it looks so damning --- that’s all you need to look into it a little further. But I’m not quite on the conspiracy side of this yet.”

    Tucker Carlson opened his Wednesday night show with a brief follow-up report on Tuesday’s “insurrection” story. He pointed out that no event in media history has ever been used to greater partisan political effect: “Because of January 6, our attorney general told us this week, we’ve got to change our country forever.” He commented that before REVOLVER NEWS published their report on Monday, “we had no idea that at least 20 organizers and participants in the events at the Capitol have not been indicted, despite the nationwide dragnet for people who were there.”

    The government obviously knows who they are. Why aren’t they being charged with crimes? The suggestion made by REVOLVER, and supported by their detailed analysis of another act of domestic terrorism, the attempted kidnaping three months before of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, is that they had, in Tucker’s words, “some connection to the government.” It appears that they were in contact with the FBI beforehand.

    We don’t have proof that the FBI spurred on the "insurrection," but, again, the circumstantial evidence is compelling, and we know the FBI is fully capable of creating a scandal themselves, with, gosh, nothing more than a flimsy, fictional Russian “dossier.” And as Tucker said on Tuesday, “It’s hard to think of a bigger potential scandal than this one.”

    He noted that clips of his original report have circulated on social media --- “the Tech monopolies that helped get Joe Biden elected” --- which still work closely with the Biden administration to control the flow of information you’re allowed to see. “They tried to make me go away,” he said. In fact, Twitter actually inserted itself by pretending to be the arbiter of truth and “explaining” what was “wrong” with his report: “Federal law does not permit cooperating witnesses or informants to be charged with conspiracy,” Twitter lectured, “despite a baseless suggestion by Tucker Carlson that some co-conspirators of the January 5 attack on the U.S. Capitol were not charged because they were undercover FBI agents.”

    “Baseless”? Well, Tucker pointed out that in trying to dismiss his report, they actually helped confirm it by suggesting that people who weren’t charged were cooperating witnesses or informants.

    We’ll take Tucker’s refutation of Twitter even further: Cooperating witnesses who don’t get indicted are typically lower-level actors who are testifying to help the FBI bring down the “big fish.” In this case, from what we can tell, the unindicted co-conspirators ARE the “big fish,” while the little fish are the ones being aggressively prosecuted. In the Whitmer case, the REVOLVER report shows quite plainly that the people involved in the attempted kidnaping of Gov. Whitmer but who were not indicted were the ones in leadership roles. And that’s just not how “cooperation with the FBI” works within a normal investigation. It’s the little fish that get thrown back, not the big ones.

    I know Twitter is just trying to help –- with the Democrats’ narrative, that is –- but they need to just stay out.

    We scanned other media reports of the REVOLVER story and Tucker’s Tuesday night show and saw a pattern. They chose to inaccurately characterize this as an out-and-out accusation of the FBI and then go after that. Typical “straw man” argument. I’ll venture to speak for everyone who’s curious about the FBI’s role on January 6: All we want at this point is to be able to ask some questions, and, if we ask really, really nicely, maybe to see the security footage that’s still being withheld.


    Laugh Of The Day

    It was reported that the Women’s March, which promoted the idea of a huge wealth tax with the slogan “Billionaires shouldn’t exist,” benefitted from $245 million given to its partners by billionaire George Soros.

    Headline Of The Day!

    From a story about the G7 summit on the satirical site, The Babylon Bee:

    “People Who Ruined World's Economies Gather To Discuss How To Fix World's Economies”

    https://babylonbee.com/news/people-who-ruined-worlds-economies-gather-to-discuss-how-to-fix-worlds-economies

    But I have to admit, the New York Times might be right: this story is called satire, but it really isn’t satire. It’s actually just a news story, only written much more honestly.


    The Good Old High School Days

    By Mike Huckabee

    I remember when high school proms used to have themes like “We’ve Only Just Begun” or “Kiss Today Goodbye.” But in 2021, the theme for some high school proms seems to be “Hysterical Totalitarian Idiocy” (I hope that looks better in the yearbooks than it sounds.) If you thought the ban on dancing in the movie “Footloose” was silly, wait until you read about the draconian, COVID panic-inspired, CCP-style prom night in Exeter, New Hampshire.

    https://www.westernjournal.com/high-school-marks-unvaccinated-students-prom-forces-identify/

    What could be worse? How about a high school graduation ceremony where attendees were forced to endure a speech by a local radical school official who used the occasion to denounce America, capitalism, individualism and objectivity and promote racist “anti-racism,” social justice, “equity” and jihad. She also gave a shout-out to the class president, who'd led the Pledge of Allegiance by calling the US “one nation under Allah.”

    https://www.dailywire.com/news/dem-tells-high-school-grads-theyre-entering-capitalism-white-supremacy-remember-jihad-reject-objectivity

    Incidentally, this is the same school board member who was going to receive an award from a local Jewish group, but it was rescinded due to her tweets accusing Israel of being colonizers and an apartheid state, of killing Palestinians and of “desecrating the Holy Land.”:

    Still wonder why so many Americans now call putting your kids into public school a form of child abuse?


    Biden DOJ To Investigate Trump DOJ

    By Mike Huckabee

    You can certainly tell the Democrats are back in power with the announcement that the Biden Department of “Justice” will investigate...(no, not the violent communist radicals of Antifa...) the Trump Department of Justice.

    https://www.westernjournal.com/bidens-doj-announces-opening-probe-trumps-doj/

    They want to investigate the way the Trump DOJ investigated Congress members such as Eric Swalwell and Adam Schiff who were suspected of leaking classified information to the media. You’d think that an actual Department of Justice would be more concerned with investigating the leaks of classified information. (Ironically, this relates to a partisan investigation of Trump that was found to be groundless, but that never stopped the Democrats from launching another partisan investigation and another and another…)

    From the story:

    “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the effort to track down leakers was ‘yet another egregious assault on our democracy waged by the former president.’ Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois said they want (former Attorney General Bill) Barr and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appear before Congress to answer questions about the issue. ‘This appalling politicization of the Department of Justice by Donald Trump and his sycophants must be investigated immediately by both the DOJ Inspector General and Congress,’ they said in a statement.”

    And if anyone knows about the appalling politicization of government agencies, it’s those two.

    But as long as we’re digging into how the DOJ’s of past Administrations investigated alleged leakers of classified information, why stop with Trump’s alleged “egregious assault on our democracy”? How about the Obama DOJ that secretly obtained phone and email records from reporter James Rosen to try to identify his source for a story on North Korea, or that spied on the records from more than 20 phone lines of A.P. reporters to try to find out their source for a story from Yemen?

    That sparked bipartisan outrage at the time over Obama’s “unprecedented war on journalism.” But while Obama later backtracked and promised a change in policy, at the time he said he would make “no apologies” for investigations into national security-related leaks. As Yahoo News reported in 2013, “The Obama administration has prosecuted twice as many leakers as all previous administrations combined.”

    Reporters at least have the First Amendment freedom of the press to protect them. What special provisions in the law prevent the investigation of Congress members who are suspected of leaking classified information? I’ll pass along the answer to that as soon as Chuck or Nancy call me with it.


    House GOP pushes To Censure Ilhan Omar

    By Mike Huckabee

    House Republicans are renewing their push to censure Rep. Ilhan Omar and her fellow “Squad” members for their recent false attacks on Israel, their comparisons of the US and Israel to the Taliban, and more specifically, for publicly supporting the actions of Hamas, a recognized terrorist group.

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/republican-resolution-censure-ilhan-omar-squad-israel-comments

    I’m glad they’re doing it because it’s the right thing to do, and attention needs to be drawn to her outrageous comments. But don’t expect it to pass because Speaker Pelosi seems too cowed by the Squad and their far-left constituency to do anything substantive to rein them in. Also, she seems to have difficulty these days telling the difference between actual terrorists and Trump supporters.

    POLL:  Do you agree?  Should she be censured by Congress and removed from her committee assignments for these extreme, untrue views?

      Dear Sir, I truly feel the only way for good & lasting change is Term Limits. A nation wide push by We The People could & should make this Happen. If you want to drain a swamp, get rid of the oldest, deepest, roots first. I pray, We The
      People, will make this a National Vote by 2022. I deeply respect your bravery, your desire for honesty & your love of God and Family. God Bless Sir, Mack

      Adams is dancing all over the place, doesn't want his name on the "LIST". Jan 6th was a false flag orchestrated attack to soil America First Patriots that love their Country, They were infiltrated by Oathkeepers, Proud Boys, ANTIFA, Ukrainians. The Oathkeepers and Proud Boys both have a history of working for the FBI on clandestine operations. So stop dancing and stand up for our fellow American Patriots Mike!!!

      Does any one in this country trust our government agencies? The Communists in the MSM and our Oval Office's roster, what it has done is to bring distrust in our agencies the FBI raids the IRS our DOJ's lack of balance in Justice of course the President and its VP I wouldn't be able to employ any of the Cabinet members or heads of the Departments they are un-trust worthy, incompetent, corrupt and would steal anything it could. and it probably gets worse when you look into their private life I would be afraid to open those doors.

      I have watched every clip possible on the Jan 6th 'incident'. The THOUSANDS of patriots that were there were almost all PEACEFULLY supporting our president, with prayer and true patriotism. Some standing nearby actually even tried to stop some of the vandals that were trying to break windows and doors. MOST started leaving when they saw something was happening and Trump asked people to leave peacefully. There was NO DOUBT, in my mind, that those who were 'breaking in' were behaving, mostly, just like Antifa operatives. They did not respect the flag or anyone else, such as law enforcement, and that IS NOT what most patriots act like! Indeed, I was told by a young man that Antifa was openly recruiting members to attend and disrupt the Jan. 6th meeting days before it occurred! There are some great video clips of the thousands of patriots on Jan. 6th. The media and the leftists in government that have managed to secure their positions even though it is debatable that the election was not stolen, and the FBI too, have now cast an overall mistrust in our government's obedience to rule of law. Personally, the FBI, an agency that I once looked to as some of my heroes, is the last place I would call to report any suspected foul play. This is not just my suspicions or any theory. Look at the FBI's recorded acts for the last 10 to 15 yrs or so. Look at what the present DOJ office and other agencies are now saying. Good American citizens are being targeted, not the criminals. I am beginning to feel ashamed for my country.

      Human trafficking is slavery to both the people/organizations that 'hire' them at below average wages and to the cartels that they 'owe' their wages to for their transportation to the border. Also addiction to the drugs being brought through the nonexistent border is slavery to those drugs (this is knowledge from past experience).

      Two points. First there are cases in history where groups of people can be transformed into mobs in mass hysteria. You need look no further than Germans reacting to a Hitler speech. Next with the DOJ investigations and the new see something, say something. Is AG Garland becoming the US’s Himmler?

      I am still confused as I've heard that some of the "protestors" who were at the Trump rally have been rounded up and put in solitary confinement??!! That, to me, is torture and should be reserved for the worst of the worst yet I think they put General Flynn in there and it's just horrific to think they are relishing doing this to any Trump supporters. Could you enlighten me? Thanks.

      I think that the more moderate citizens of this country need to start on the local level to combat this Marxist takeover brewing. By that I mean to start replacing school boards with thinking, sensible people as well as city councils, mayors and state legislatures. This subjugation of young children to the way left agenda is resulting in segregation by race, and loss of school time that needs to be used for real education. This will also cause the loss of good teachers whose conscience will not allow them to be part of the brain washing. The Dems are creating hatred and division, far surpassing anything done by the Trump administration. Every school board that promotes, or allows CRT to be taught should be replaced as fast as possible. Furthermore, it is not necessary for very young children to be knowledgeable about sexual orientation or the functioning of sexual organs. Children can be taught to respect others and people who are different quite easily without going into details. The private schools are easier to control, just withdraw the students and thus the money. The one room school house was not doubt far superior to anything we now have in place.

      If the Independents and GOP do not come out to vote in droves in the 2022 elections we will soon be just another mediocre country at best and fully Marxist at worst in a very short time. “If good people do nothing…………………”. What scares me is that middle America probably doesn’t know what is really going on. Controlling information is the best resource the left has to foment their way of life.

      You know there is an old saying Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned . Even though she's half a decade older then him the way Nancy Pelosi keeps carping about Trump I'm beginning to think they must have been an item when they were younger and he dumped her. Just saying...

      The FBI and January 6: the fbi had been no friend to trump it is likely the fbi were participants in this matter is the more likely the reality
