Yesterday, we played “remember when” with the FBI’s opening of their investigation into Trump, supposedly on allegations of “obstruction justice” for firing Director James Comey. As newly declassified documents show, the FBI knew when they opened that investigation that top officials at the DOJ had already been talking about firing Comey for months. (Who DIDN’T want to fire Comey?) And this had nothing to do with “Russia Russia Russia.”

Here's another installment from the documents declassified by Trump, this time about Michael Flynn. As you'll see, the Flynn story is quite consistent with what the FBI and other government agencies appear to have in store for anyone who dares to criticize the Biden administration or pose any challenge to its power. Let’s take a look at what Chuck Ross at the DAILY CALLER has found.

Remember when Michael Flynn was plagued with rumors that he'd been having an affair with a Russian woman named Svetlana Lokhova, a researcher at the University of Cambridge? Reports started surfacing in March of 2017, in THE WALL STREET JOURNAL and THE GUARDIAN, and Christopher Steele spread the rumor as well, telling David Kramer, a former State Department official, who, as it happens, was also the person who later passed a copy of Steele’s “dossier” to BUZZFEED, where it was published in full with no verification.

Flynn, it was said, left with Lokhova from a dinner both had been invited to at Cambridge when he was the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, in 2015. That dinner, hosted by Sir Richard Dearlove, former head of British spy organization MI-6 and associate of “confidential human source” Stefan Halper, may very well have been set up to place Flynn and Lokhova together. Recall that Obama opposed Flynn and his ideas on how to run military intel and wanted him gone.

Lokhova has vehemently denied that she left the dinner with Flynn, saying her husband picked her up at the end of the evening and that there was nothing between her and Flynn. (Though Ross’s piece doesn’t mention this, I believe she also sued those who were perpetuating the rumor.)

We talked about this many months ago as part of what Lee Smith reported in his outstanding book THE PLOT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT. One might also say this was the plot against Michael Flynn, too.

The newly declassified summary notes of Flynn’s meeting with the special counsel’s office show for the first time that Flynn was asked about this and cooperated fully, saying the allegations he’d read in the media were “ridiculous.” (There has never been any evidence of a relationship between Flynn and Lokhova.) Two days after this interview, he struck his unfortunate plea deal with the special counsel’s office.

William Barnett, the FBI agent investigating Flynn as part of Crossfire Hurricane, had already said in a January 2017 memo that a tip the Bureau received from an FBI informant about Flynn leaving that event with a Russian national was likely inaccurate. And in September 2020, he told a federal prosecutor that he’d found the allegation of Flynn leaving the event with Lokhova to be “not plausible.”

So, who put the fake story out there? It’s like an Agatha Christie murder mystery --- without the murder, except to the reputations of a couple of people. Was it Sir Richard Dearlove? Cambridge professor Christopher Andrew? One of the few Cambridge students in attendance? Or was it Stefan Halper, a close associate of Dearlove who was not at the dinner but who had been a CHS (“confidential human source”) for the FBI since 2008 and whom we know provided information to the FBI as part of their investigation of the Trump campaign?

Recall that Halper met with George Papadopoulos, Carter Page and Sam Clovis of the Trump campaign and secretly recorded them all.

If I were a betting man, my money would be on Halper. Sure enough, we now know it was Halper who invited Lokhova to that dinner. Also, according to other documents that have just been declassified, Halper told his FBI handler Steven Somma about Flynn and “someone he deemed to be suspicious.” Here’s a little refresher on Somma, also known as “Case Agent 1.”

Flynn was definitely caught in the crossfire of Crossfire Hurricane. According to the DOJ inspector general’s report dated December 19, 2019, FBI agents who met with Christopher Steele on October 3, 2916, offered to pay him “significantly” to dig up dirt on several Trump associates, including Flynn. What a deal for Steele --- he got to go after Trump, whom he couldn’t stand, help Hillary beat him, and get paid “significantly” in the process. Here’s a refresher.

No, we still don’t know what U.S. Attorney John Durham is going to do with any of this. And we’re now stuck with a Biden Justice Department, so justice seems unlikely. But thanks to Trump finally getting this stuff out, we’re filling in the holes and confirming what we knew was done to the President and fine people like Michael Flynn. Sorry to say, the intel community really does have “six ways from Sunday” of getting back at you.

And as part of the new Biden administration, it’ll be on steroids. Look at what the FBI has done already, drumming up phony concern about a small group of extremists called QAnon, which most Republicans (including us) had never even heard of, and also throwing the book at social media influencer and “meme”-creator Doug Mackey (a.k.a. Ricky Vaughn) on charges of INTERFERING WITH THE 2020 ELECTION. (He faces 10 years; check out his story elsewhere in today’s newsletter.) The irony of the FBI going after anyone for “election interference” after what they did both before and after the 2016 election is beyond calculation.

The Department of Homeland Security has focused on Trump supporters, too, offering this warning: "Information suggests that some ideologically-motivated violent extremists with objections to the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize to incite or commit violence."

Not that they have evidence of this actually happening THAT THEY HAVE REVEALED. But, as we've seen with the case of Michael Flynn, they're perfectly capable of creating their own "false narratives."

    This thing makes me sick! Maddow is still spreading the lies about Russia, Russia, Russia. Every single one of the people slandered by the lies now being revealed should sue and sue big. Maybe if the lawsuits get enough attention SOME people will realize how wrong they were about the Democrats and about President Trump. In about three to six months they will definitely be realizing why and how they were so wrong about Pres. Biden.

    Dear Governor Huckabee,
    I have been enjoying your newsletter thus far. I saw you wrote that you read what is sent to you so I thought I would pass along how Washington appears to me in this first week under the new administration. (see below) Enjoy and best of luck to your daughter in her campaign. Sincerely, Liz Kastner

    Broadway may be shuddered and the lights are dim, but political theatre is alive and well in Washington, D.C. with the latest production, Optical Illusions. It can best be described as akin to a Shakespearian tragedy blended with a horror film; however, the plot is not nearly so easy to follow. Main stream media pundits, big tech and Silicon Valley, along with the plethora of behind the scene big donors are lauding the performance with rave reviews. Not surprising, these three draw striking similarities to the witches in Macbeth. They possess a unique ability to tap into the emotions, thoughts, and desires of the players to their own personal amusement. However, to the honest critic, the performance is lackluster, predictable, and borders on depressing.
    As the performance is still in its production stage, viewers have only been able to see glimpses of the first act introducing the characters. As the curtain lifts, a myriad of countless soldiers can be seen mulling about the city with little purpose. A narrator can be heard offstage assuring viewers that the soldiers are necessary to perpetuate the first optical illusion. There is an ongoing threat from anyone, and everyone, who has conservative beliefs. Such villainous characters are lurking behind every tree, hedge, doorway, hallway, and building waiting to strike. They are simply waiting for a cue from their leader who had the audacity to hear their voices and seek to preserve the American dream and its greatness. As the performance continues, neatly dressed men and women are gathered in large numbers. Some stand to the right, others to the left, with a handful of stragglers that appear unsure which side of the room they should be on. The lighting director steps in and casts an eerie red glow over those on right. Those on the left are cast in a far more flattering light. It is instantly apparent that the subtle lighting is subliminally promoting one side as good and the other as evil. Those bearing gavels are meant to appear as the beacons of justice, yet their words belie their true nature of hypocrisy and their motivation of power, self-enrichment, and the silencing of critics. This is the second optical illusion.
    The cast of characters is not done. As the third scene begins, a man played by Joe Biden, has been cast as President of the United States. Many will remember him from his past performances and panned reviews. The producer, thus far, has taken into consideration, Biden’s tendency to misspeak or fumble his lines. Biden is placed at a table. A pile of folders appears at his left, prepared by the unseen aides whose roles are well-defined. Their purpose is to advance the policies and goals of generous donors who have paid to have their agendas promoted into their personal visions for the nation. The aides are also there for damage control. After all, if the plot is revealed too early, the audience might not like it. Like an automatronic monkey, Biden picks up his pen, slides a folder forward and signs then repeats the action until the pile is dwindled and replaced. Once again, the offstage narrator can be heard calling out the identity of each document. The third optical illusion. The global audience is supposed to believe that these documents are in their best interest. The savvy critics are already picking up the loss of jobs, the threat to religious liberty, the attack on the oil and gas industry, the loss of energy independence, the threats to the unborn, the reversal of favorable tax regulations, the loss of border security, and the overt pandering to foreign nations.
    The final scene of Act I is the most dramatic of all. The lights pan over the three witches and their beguiled devotees. The witches are clearly plotting and coordinating while their adoring fans, lap up the nectar bubbling over from the cauldron of deceit. Hypnotically and faithfully, they echo and repeat the mantra of phrases which ensure a constant division, and blind allegiance that leave them helplessly and addictively dependent. One cannot help but see Darwin’s theory of “survival of the fittest” playing out across the stage out of fear for not being a willing participant in the pantomime of “group think”. They readily justify and excuse any contradictory statements or broken promises with shifting blame, erasures, or rapidly rewritten scripts that are crafted and edited. This is the fourth optical illusion. Survival depends upon agreeing, adopting, and worshipping the views of the witches, or risk eternal silence and ostracization. It is haunting and terrifying to see those who are willing to forgo their freedoms out of indoctrinated blind hatred.
    Objectively, Optical Illusions, should not have a long run. Those who are able to see through the illusions should have the courage to pan it even if they are outnumbered and the forums to speak truth are narrowed. After all, history is replete with evidence of how plays like Optical Illusion could end. History also is filled with ordinary and extraordinary heroes and martyrs who ensured that the ending was not as expected. Frankly, a revival of 1776 would have a more positive and uplifting message.

    Anyone that truly disagrees with Obama is an American of value as Obama dislikes the Constitution as he had mentored the President of today. American Greatness is dead last on its list to MAGA as is well documented today. Congress the president has no real need of its citizens as long as the power is in the offices or institution that enhances their asset sheets the loss of jobs due to shutdowns in the oil industry with no other jobs available to get employed shows disregard for the Citizen why because the power of the office allows it too bad citizen. The idea of having a job with alternative energy is to have the industry in working order first as always this prudent is backwards or just wrong on almost everything his life endured he is just getting even now because no one believed in him so he became a thief a liar he even doesn't practice in his religion the 10 commandments may have been violated every day he drew a breath I guess just maybe Joe isn't a good citizen someone else will decide what his beliefs were and are. When his time comes no office here will protect him no Obama will protect him no Comey like person will protect him; Biden's actions are what will protect him or condemn him. Rest well today Joe enjoy all the pain you make for Americans tomorrow as I know you will.

    Dear Governor Huckabee,
    I am fearful going anywhere these days. I was at my eye doctors appointment on January 6th. ( My appointments can be quite long and in depth because of the HCL Medication I’ve been taking for over 20 years. ) Anyway, a woman came in to pick up her glasses very loud and agitated. She was saying that “they” were attacking the Capitol Building.

    I stood up as my back was to her and told her it was just a protest and some people were going to walk down to the Capitol afterwards. She popped off, “I don’t know where you get your news lady!” And, “it’s real bullets, not rubber ones like this summer.”

    Next, she walked to within a foot of my face and said,” I’m just as big as you are lady!” I told her that I don’t even own a tv... I don’t. A male doctor came between us and stopped her from attacking me. She picked up her glasses, and after I stopped crying, I finished my exam.

    This is the fault of MSM, Big Tech, and the Democrat Party putting out falsehoods about the average Republican. This is why a twenty-something woman thought it was ok to take out her frustration on a 62 year old disabled woman. These leftist groups have turned me into an enemy. I’m now a “they”.

    My eye doctors office was great though, calling me in the evening and the next day. I am not looking forward to the next 8 years. Though I need to learn how to take persecution in stride, like most Christians around the world.
    Sincerely,
    Mrs. Ida M Dennis
    P.s. Daily Scripture first is great.

    With an Intel group such as we have, that have six ways from Sunday to get back at you, how do we combat that? Doesn't what they have done and are saying and doing incite violence itself? What if our founders didn't fight back against British wrong doing? Sometimes perhaps it is the only choice remaining. I do not promote violence but I do understand it as a human response whe. People are desperate to right an incredible group of wrongs and government ignores and abuses them.

    This commentary regarding the illegal activities of the DOJ and in particular the FBI. In my opinion, all of the "players"...from Comey to so many others like Steele, Strzok and Lisa Page...have committed serious crimes. (Not to mention the crooked Clintons!!!) Now again you remind us that it is highly unlikely that any of these folks will ever be prosecuted. Is there ever going to be justice for Republicans? I am frustrated that the Democrats have in the past and continue to do whatever they please and always get away with it! Is there any chance that will ever be changed???

AND—- west coast time to not be out done with stupid stuff—San Francisco schools are going to erase all traces of the founding fathers names in the school districts!! My God do we need Trump back. The ring leaders who lead idiots into the Capital Building were never supporters of Trump, no, just the opposite! They knew exactly what they were doing, stopping the Republicans from questioning the voting just as they were starting to. They knew exactly what they were doing to stop them from maybe getting Trump into the White House again. No amount of smoke and mirrors will ever change my mind about this. The Democrats are masters of building fires to divert your attention from the real fire they want to burn as fast as possible. Joe is giving money for abortions to other countries?? Think Jesus ain’t happy with that. AOC IS accusing members of Congress of belonging to Q? Again I’m laughing but mad as hell about her and others still able to get paid by my taxes to help destroy America! Come on Man— vote with your brains and get these idiots out of our Government!

    Good Morning, Sir Huckabee,
    I look forward to your daily letters. Your honesty and truthfulness is a true inspiration to many. Thank you! ??
    I just want to say that I am of the opinion that wearing masks is causing brain damage to many American citizens. This is the only conclusion I can come to in light of this new "pandemic" of unreasonable thinking and total brainwashing of otherwise "normal" people.
    For example, "normal people" going totally ballistic on another human who does not conform to the "mask law", calling their own neighbours horrible names, turning these same neighbours in to authorities if these "deplorable people" dare to have company at their homes, or walking out to their own mailbox without "proper face coverings" on at all times!
    I have no idea what chemicals these masks contain, but whatever it is, it seems to be working to further divide a divided society.
    I however refuse to wear these muzzles that seem to cause a mental breakdown of human compassion. If I am shot down like a wild animal so be it. At least I shall go down with my faith in Jesus Christ fully intact.
    Thank you for letting me vent. God Bless you and your lovely family.??

    Sincerely your #1 fan,
    Mrs.D.Slaton

But since the beginning with the FBI the top has been corrupt. Which just proves two sayings One bad apple (j.e.hoover) will spoils the whole barrel and an apple does not fall far from the tree

    Does it appear that the Washington Democrats, FBI, and DOJ are displaying signs of schizophrenia? They commit crimes like the Russia/Trump scandal, supporting riots, and insurrection.

    Dear Governor Huckabee,
    I keep hearing how the Senate was flipped this election! The makeup of the Senate is now 50 Republicans,48 Democrats,and 2 Independents! I realize that the Independents vote with the Democrats but in order for the split to be 50-50 shouldn’t the Independents be forced to convert to the Democratic Party in order for them to hold a 50-50 split?McConnell should still be majority leader with a 50-48-2 split! I don’t understand how you can be majority leader without a majority!
    Is there anything we can do with this? Thank you and God Bless you!
    Keep up the good work!

Also an independent committee to create our Districts. I wss going to join but my own government scares me about saying or doing anything anymore. It seems they eant to demonize amything they dont agree with. I nrver thought i would feel like this in America afraid of my own government! I hear talk of deprogramming camps and such.

    As the performance is still in its production stage, viewers have only been able to see glimpses of the first act introducing the characters. As the curtain lifts, a myriad of countless soldiers can be seen mulling about the city with little purpose. A narrator can be heard offstage assuring viewers that the soldiers are necessary to perpetuate the first optical illusion. There is an ongoing threat from anyone, and everyone, who has conservative beliefs. Such villainous characters are lurking behind every tree, hedge, doorway, hallway, and building waiting to strike. They are simply waiting for a cue from their leader who had the audacity to hear their voices and seek to preserve the American dream and its greatness. As the performance continues, neatly dressed men and women are gathered in large numbers. Some stand to the right, others to the left, with a handful of stragglers that appear unsure which side of the room they should be on. The lighting director steps in and casts an eerie red glow over those on right. Those on the left are cast in a far more flattering light. It is instantly apparent that the subtle lighting is subliminally promoting one side as good and the other as evil. Those bearing gavels are meant to appear as the beacons of justice, yet their words belie their true nature of hypocrisy and their motivation of power, self-enrichment, and the silencing of critics. This is the second optical illusion.
    The cast of characters is not done. As the third scene begins, a man played by Joe Biden, has been cast as President of the United States. Many will remember him from his past performances and panned reviews. The producer, thus far, has taken into consideration, Biden’s tendency to misspeak or fumble his lines. Biden is placed at a table. A pile of folders appears at his left, prepared by the unseen aides whose roles are well-defined. Their purpose is to advance the policies and goals of generous donors who have paid to have their agendas promoted into their personal visions for the nation. The aides are also there for damage control. After all, if the plot is revealed too early, the audience might not like it. Like an automatronic monkey, Biden picks up his pen, slides a folder forward and signs then repeats the action until the pile is dwindled and replaced. Once again, the offstage narrator can be heard calling out the identity of each document. The third optical illusion. The global audience is supposed to believe that these documents are in their best interest. The savvy critics are already picking up the loss of jobs, the threat to religious liberty, the attack on the oil and gas industry, the loss of energy independence, the threats to the unborn, the reversal of favorable tax regulations, the loss of border security, and the overt pandering to foreign nations.
    The final scene of Act I is the most dramatic of all. The lights pan over the three witches and their beguiled devotees. The witches are clearly plotting and coordinating while their adoring fans, lap up the nectar bubbling over from the cauldron of deceit. Hypnotically and faithfully, they echo and repeat the mantra of phrases which ensure a constant division, and blind allegiance that leave them helplessly and addictively dependent. One cannot help but see Darwin’s theory of “survival of the fittest” playing out across the stage out of fear for not being a willing participant in the pantomime of “group think”. They readily justify and excuse any contradictory statements or broken promises with shifting blame, erasures, or rapidly rewritten scripts that are crafted and edited. This is the fourth optical illusion. Survival depends upon agreeing, adopting, and worshipping the views of the witches, or risk eternal silence and ostracization. It is haunting and terrifying to see those who are willing to forgo their freedoms out of indoctrinated blind hatred.
    Objectively, Optical Illusions, should not have a long run. Those who are able to see through the illusions should have the courage to pan it even if they are outnumbered and the forums to speak truth are narrowed. After all, history is replete with evidence of how plays like Optical Illusion could end. History also is filled with ordinary and extraordinary heroes and martyrs who ensured that the ending was not as expected. Frankly, a revival of 1776 would have a more positive and uplifting message.

    Anyone that truly disagrees with Obama is an American of value as Obama dislikes the Constitution as he had mentored the President of today. American Greatness is dead last on its list to MAGA as is well documented today. Congress the president has no real need of its citizens as long as the power is in the offices or institution that enhances their asset sheets the loss of jobs due to shutdowns in the oil industry with no other jobs available to get employed shows disregard for the Citizen why because the power of the office allows it too bad citizen. The idea of having a job with alternative energy is to have the industry in working order first as always this prudent is backwards or just wrong on almost everything his life endured he is just getting even now because no one believed in him so he became a thief a liar he even doesn't practice in his religion the 10 commandments may have been violated every day he drew a breath I guess just maybe Joe isn't a good citizen someone else will decide what his beliefs were and are. When his time comes no office here will protect him no Obama will protect him no Comey like person will protect him; Biden's actions are what will protect him or condemn him. Rest well today Joe enjoy all the pain you make for Americans tomorrow as I know you will.

    Dear Governor Huckabee,
    I am fearful going anywhere these days. I was at my eye doctors appointment on January 6th. ( My appointments can be quite long and in depth because of the HCL Medication I’ve been taking for over 20 years. ) Anyway, a woman came in to pick up her glasses very loud and agitated. She was saying that “they” were attacking the Capitol Building.

    I stood up as my back was to her and told her it was just a protest and some people were going to walk down to the Capitol afterwards. She popped off, “I don’t know where you get your news lady!” And, “it’s real bullets, not rubber ones like this summer.”

    Next, she walked to within a foot of my face and said,” I’m just as big as you are lady!” I told her that I don’t even own a tv... I don’t. A male doctor came between us and stopped her from attacking me. She picked up her glasses, and after I stopped crying, I finished my exam.

    This is the fault of MSM, Big Tech, and the Democrat Party putting out falsehoods about the average Republican. This is why a twenty-something woman thought it was ok to take out her frustration on a 62 year old disabled woman. These leftist groups have turned me into an enemy. I’m now a “they”.

    My eye doctors office was great though, calling me in the evening and the next day. I am not looking forward to the next 8 years. Though I need to learn how to take persecution in stride, like most Christians around the world.
    Sincerely,
    Mrs. Ida M Dennis
    P.s. Daily Scripture first is great.

    With an Intel group such as we have, that have six ways from Sunday to get back at you, how do we combat that? Doesn't what they have done and are saying and doing incite violence itself? What if our founders didn't fight back against British wrong doing? Sometimes perhaps it is the only choice remaining. I do not promote violence but I do understand it as a human response whe. People are desperate to right an incredible group of wrongs and government ignores and abuses them.

    This commentary regarding the illegal activities of the DOJ and in particular the FBI. In my opinion, all of the "players"...from Comey to so many others like Steele, Strzok and Lisa Page...have committed serious crimes. (Not to mention the crooked Clintons!!!) Now again you remind us that it is highly unlikely that any of these folks will ever be prosecuted. Is there ever going to be justice for Republicans? I am frustrated that the Democrats have in the past and continue to do whatever they please and always get away with it! Is there any chance that will ever be changed???

    Well Sir as I sit here writing this it’s being reported that New York under reported by a whopping 50% the people who died in nursing homes in New York AND— again New York— turns out there was an secret operative for Iran working in—at the New York Times newspaper!! AND—- west coast time to not be out done with stupid stuff—San Francisco schools are going to erase all traces of the founding fathers names in the school districts!! My God do we need Trump back. The ring leaders who lead idiots into the Capital Building were never supporters of Trump, no, just the opposite! They knew exactly what they were doing, stopping the Republicans from questioning the voting just as they were starting to. They knew exactly what they were doing to stop them from maybe getting Trump into the White House again. No amount of smoke and mirrors will ever change my mind about this. The Democrats are masters of building fires to divert your attention from the real fire they want to burn as fast as possible. Joe is giving money for abortions to other countries?? Think Jesus ain’t happy with that. AOC IS accusing members of Congress of belonging to Q? Again I’m laughing but mad as hell about her and others still able to get paid by my taxes to help destroy America! Come on Man— vote with your brains and get these idiots out of our Government! Please!!

    I'm so tired of this corruption being allowed to run rampant with no prosecutions. Now, they don't even have to try to hide it. I'm thankful that I know Christ, and his word says that he Will deal with the wicked evildoers. I pray that some will repent and tell the truth or they will face the Lord eventually; whether they believe it or not.

    Good Morning, Sir Huckabee,
    I look forward to your daily letters. Your honesty and truthfulness is a true inspiration to many. Thank you! ??
    I just want to say that I am of the opinion that wearing masks is causing brain damage to many American citizens. This is the only conclusion I can come to in light of this new "pandemic" of unreasonable thinking and total brainwashing of otherwise "normal" people.
    For example, "normal people" going totally ballistic on another human who does not conform to the "mask law", calling their own neighbours horrible names, turning these same neighbours in to authorities if these "deplorable people" dare to have company at their homes, or walking out to their own mailbox without "proper face coverings" on at all times!
    I have no idea what chemicals these masks contain, but whatever it is, it seems to be working to further divide a divided society.
    I however refuse to wear these muzzles that seem to cause a mental breakdown of human compassion. If I am shot down like a wild animal so be it. At least I shall go down with my faith in Jesus Christ fully intact.
    Thank you for letting me vent. God Bless you and your lovely family.??

    Sincerely your #1 fan,
    Mrs.D.Slaton

    Mike Huckabee, thank you for printing this story! I am learning a LOT from reading your "Morning Editions."

    Just a little sidenote, I noticed a typo: I think you meant 2016:

    "Flynn was definitely caught in the crossfire of Crossfire Hurricane. According to the DOJ inspector general’s report dated December 19, 2019, FBI agents who met with Christopher Steele on October 3, 2916, offered to pay him “significantly” to dig up dirt on several Trump associates, including Flynn. ..."

    I'm just not sure what would be best to do (as if we had a choice) with or about the FBI get rid of the whole outfit and turn it over to the US Marshalls or get rid of all the top people there and turn it over to the US Marshalls. But since the beginning with the FBI the top has been corrupt. Which just proves two sayings One bad apple (j.e.hoover) will spoils the whole barrel and an apple does not fall far from the tree

    Does it appear that the Washington Democrats, FBI, and DOJ are displaying signs of schizophrenia? They commit crimes like the Russia/Trump scandal, supporting riots, and insurrection. Then they blame the Republicans for what they fabricated and supported. Amazing how deep the venom of political power can twist a mind.
    Is there any consequence for not following an Oath of Office?

    Dear Governor Huckabee,
    I keep hearing how the Senate was flipped this election! The makeup of the Senate is now 50 Republicans,48 Democrats,and 2 Independents! I realize that the Independents vote with the Democrats but in order for the split to be 50-50 shouldn’t the Independents be forced to convert to the Democratic Party in order for them to hold a 50-50 split?McConnell should still be majority leader with a 50-48-2 split! I don’t understand how you can be majority leader without a majority!
    Is there anything we can do with this? Thank you and God Bless you!
    Keep up the good work!
    Mr&Mrs Peter Manning

    Mike. Havevyou ecer heard of represent.us? It is supposedly a neutral group that is neither Dem or GOP bit rather a groupr eho opposes lobbyist and instead is backing ideavof giving every voting American a $100 credit to then give to their candidate of choice thus eliminating big money buying votes. Also an independent committee to create our Districts. I wss going to join but my own government scares me about saying or doing anything anymore. It seems they eant to demonize amything they dont agree with. I nrver thought i would feel like this in America afraid of my own government! I hear talk of deprogramming camps and such. I am a senior Christian and dont want to do anything wrong but I find I am fearful now of what is coming next
