    THE MORNING EDITION By Mike Huckabee

    Good morning! Here are some stories from me that I think you will want to read. Topics include:

    • Fight To Stop The OSHA Vaccine Mandate 
    • MSM Bias
    • A New Column And Wise Words From A Democrat
    • Tragedy
    • The Russia Hoax
    • What Liberals Think Of Conservatives


    Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

    John 15:13

    If you have a Bible verse you want to see in our newsletter, please email chris(at) 



    OSHA’s vaccine mandate doesn’t even take effect until after the holidays in January (and somehow, it’s justified because this is an “emergency”) but Friday, the Attorneys General of 11 states banded together and filed a federal lawsuit to stop it. They call it “unconstitutional, unlawful and unwise.” So pretty much typical of this entire Administration.

    Incidentally, not all opponents of the vaccine mandate are Republicans. Meet the Democrat Governor who says it’s not the correct or effective solution for her state.


    Liberal media outlets like CNN and MSNBC spent years promoting a narrative about President Trump colluding with Russia. Now that we’re learning via the Durham indictments that it was actually a hoax perpetrated by people who wanted Hillary Clinton to win, those same outlets are being awfully quiet. Not only are they barely covering the recent arrests and revelations, but the host who went the deepest down the rabbit hole in pushing hysterical Russiagate conspiracy theories, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, is openly mocking the Durham arrests and still defending the discredited “Russian dossier.”

    Maddow said the indictments seem "designed to smear Christopher Steele's intelligence reports as things that were deliberately made up and concocted by rascally Democrats” (wow, she finally blunders into the truth and doesn’t even realize it.) She even invited disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok onto the show to push more self-serving horse droppings onto her poor deluded viewers.

    It was all too much for former Rolling Stone reporter Matt Taibbi. Hardly a conservative, Taibbi called the credulous promotion of Russiagate a "sizable boil on the face of American journalism" and Maddow’s refusal to admit that and her continuing promotion of it “loony,” a “shocking new low,” and a “bold leap off the credibility cliff.” He wrote, “Whatever the category below 'disgraced journalist' is, she entered it with gusto with last night’s performance."

    Couldn’t agree more, except that before she could even reach the credibility cliff, she’d first have to climb back up out of Gullibility Gorge, and I see no evidence that she’s done that.


    One of the few remaining Democratic politicians with common sense (which likely cost her the presidential nomination), Tulsi Gabbard, has some tough advice for fellow Party members who are trying to tear down America, divide us by skin color, open our border and call anyone who objects “racist.” Will they listen? It would be good for them and for America, but it requires common sense to see that, so don’t bet on it.


    Here’s what you’ve been waiting for since Tuesday’s election: Kurt Schlichter’s take on the beatdown voters delivered to Democrats and the Party’s “double down on stupid” response.


    Friday was a tragic day in the music world. At least eight people are dead and hundreds injured after the crowd at the Astroworld music festival in Houston surged forward when Travis Scott took the stage. People were pushed through barriers and crushed in the sea of bodies. Many people who did escape injury said they couldn’t breathe and feared for their lives.

    This is eerily reminiscent of the tragedy in 1979 when 11 people were killed at a Who concert in Cincinnati when the crowd surged toward the doors.

    Afterward, the city banned festival seating (with no assigned seats) for 25 years. It sounds as if that tragedy has receded enough in time that concert organizers are now repeating the same mistakes that led to it.

    Also, our prayers today for the five victims of a plane crash near Rio de Janeiro. Those killed included 26-year-old pop star and Latin Grammy winner Marília Mendonça. She was on her way to a concert when the plane crashed shortly before arrival. She leaves behind a son who will turn two next month. This adds another name to the tragic list of performers killed in small plane crashes that ranges from Patsy Cline and Buddy Holly to Stevie Ray Vaughn and Lynyrd Skynyrd.


    That’s what investigative reporter John Solomon told FOX NEWS’ Maria Bartiromo on this week’s “Sunday Morning Futures.”

    In fact, if you saw our reports last week about new developments in the Special Counsel investigation, Bartiromo’s interviews with both Solomon and former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe will serve as a great summary and follow-up. (And if you didn’t see them, these interviews will help catch you up.) Here’s the link to that episode; Bartiromo’s coverage of the Durham probe starts about 17 minutes in.

    Solomon, who told Maria the Danchenko indictment shows the Trump-Russia investigation was built on “lie upon lie upon lie,” has a new report at JUST THE NEWS in which he shifts to Durham’s look at top FBI officials.

    According to Solomon, Durham has two “buckets” of evidence he’s assembling, one implicating the Clinton campaign and the other involving top intel personnel and their willingness to mislead with falsified evidence in their pursuit of Trump. He told Bartiromo that “many other [intel] people are being examined at this moment.”

    “There’s no doubt there’s activity inside the grand jury right now,” he said, “aimed at looking at top level officials at the FBI.” Red flags were raised on the Steele “dossier” as early as August of 2016 but were obviously set aside. A month later, the CIA tied it to the Clinton campaign, but sent their report on this to...Peter Strzok. The FBI even had a spreadsheet indicating all the dossier’s impossible or uncorroborated claims.

    Solomon says the latest criminal indictment, that of Christopher Steele’s primary sub-source Igor Danchenko --- alleged to have made false statements five times to the FBI --- is just as much an indictment of the FBI as it is of him. The FBI should have seen the serious flaws in the “dossier” even though Danchenko didn’t tell them about getting the material from Clinton ally Charles Dolan.

    Incidentally, Dolan wasn’t Danchenko’s only named sub-source. One of the others, “Sub-source #4,” Alexey Sergeyevich Dundich, claims Danchenko “framed” him as a sub-source “to add credibility to his low-quality work.”

    “My impression is that Mr. Danchenko fabricated the information published in the Dossier to make quick money,” he declared. “It is apparent to me that the Dossier is a deliberate fraud and a collection of idle rumors.”

    But if the “dossier” was so obviously bogus, why didn’t then-FBI Director James Comey, deputy Director Andrew McCabe and lead “Crossfire Hurricane” investigator Peter Strzok dismiss it as such? They clearly knew it was a hoax. As retired FBI intelligence chief Kevin Brock says, “The fact pattern that John Durham is methodically establishing shows what James Comey and Andrew McCabe likely knew from Day One, that the Steele ‘dossier’ was politically-driven nonsense at the behest of the Clinton campaign. “And yet they knowingly ran with its false information to obtain legal process against an American citizen. They defrauded not just a federal court, they defrauded the FBI and the American people.”

    He went on to say that this has destroyed trust in the FBI. “As Comey cashes his royalty checks from a book and a movie, where do everyday, working FBI agents go to get the Bureau’s reputation back? The damage done by Comey, McCabe and others to the trust that Americans have traditionally placed in the FBI is incalculable.”

    Indeed, as the depth of this deceit becomes increasingly evident, there will no doubt be calls to dismantle the FBI and completely start over. I would say the person most qualified –- and motivated –- to restructure the intel bureaucracy might be none other than Mike Flynn. Now THAT would be justice.

    I would also add that, in exploiting this fakery after Trump became President, it was THEY at the Justice Department –- as opposed to Trump supporters –- who were involved in a coup, ultimately engineered by Hillary Clinton and her allies. I hope this is where Durham is headed.

    One defense the FBI will likely try, to defend itself against charges of corruption, is that this happened because of incompetent people at the top, but that doesn’t wash. As Solomon points out, one FBI official, Kevin Clinesmith, has already admitted doctoring a piece of evidence that was used to get the Carter Page warrant. And these people are highly skilled at protecting themselves legally. Recall that Comey even gave up his security clearance so he wouldn’t be able to testify about classified matters. Not so incompetent when it comes to covering his backside.

    Former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes has known about the Clinton connection for years now. “We already knew the Steele ‘dossier’ was orchestrated and funded by the Democrats, and now we know that a Democrat operative, who’d been a registered Russian agent and was closely linked to Kremlin officials, served as a direct source for the dossier’s fabrications, he told JUST THE NEWS in a reference to Charles Dolan. “As I’ve said for years, the only people who colluded with Russians were the Democrats.”

    As for Peter Strzok, he went on MSNBC Thursday and actually denied to Rachel Maddow that there was ever an FBI investigation of the Trump campaign, which is a blatant lie. (I assume he’d justify this statement by saying Carter Page was no longer with the Trump campaign when they got the warrant against him; this is a dodge that is easily dismantled.) He said that what “certain far-right commentators” are saying about that is “nonsense.”

    Solomon just smiled and shook his head at this, saying that Strzok’s own original statement that started the “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation was that they were “looking at whether individuals associated with the Trump campaign were coordinating or conspiring with Russia.” The Trump campaign was mentioned a dozen times in the first FISA application, submitted in October of 2016 at the height of the campaign.

    “He was lying the other night,” Solomon said. “There’s no other way to say it politely.”

    Sara Carter, in an appearance this weekend on Steve Hilton’s FOX NEWS show THE NEXT REVOLUTION, brought up a couple of interesting facts we didn’t know about Fiona Hill, a star witness in Trump Impeachment #1. Not only did she introduce Igor Danchenko to Christopher Steele, but she also introduced Clinton crony Charles Dolan to Danchenko. All of these connections appear to center around the solidly anti-Trump “think-tank” the Brookings Institution, headed by big-time Clinton ally Strobe Talbott. Also, Hill was working closely at the time with H. R. McMaster, the person who replaced Michael Flynn as Trump’s new national security adviser after the FBI set Flynn up and destroyed his career. It seems that practically every day, there’s another puzzle piece or two to put in place.


    Hey, fellow ignoramuses! What would we do without liberals to explain to us dumb nose-pickers that all the things we’re upset about either don’t really exist or are actually good for us?

    For instance, the crush of illegal immigrants just shows that things are so great under Biden that everyone wants to move here! It’s a compliment!...Skyrocketing inflation? It’s that great Biden economy that has people so raring to spend money that suppliers can’t keep up!...Gas doubling in price? That’s all OPEC’s fault; you just don’t understand how the global oil market works...Critical Race Theory? Why, that doesn’t even exist! But if you criticize it, you’re a racist.

    And now the latest from President Biden: Americans who want to know why the cost of food is rising so fast just don’t understand the supply chain, so the media needs to do a better job of explaining it to them.

    Granted, I’m just a poor hick who don’t have no brain power to cotton to all them hard words and stuff that DC savants like Joe Biden spew. But it seems to me that if you don’t want supply chain disruptions and rising prices, maybe you should stop doing everything possible to disrupt the supply. You know, like maybe NOT shutting down another oil pipeline just as winter is approaching. Like an idiot would do.

      Is Biden preparing for a war. Killing thousands is what Gates and Soros would "soil their diapers for!"
      I can see the governor's calling out their police, troopers, and patriots to guard these remaining essential energy sources.
      Soros already in trouble in Europe. Exposed as the man behind most of the European High Court by the ACLJ. A minority of Americans and the Black Robe Regiment fought and defeated the British Empire with God's help.
      Presently there is a populist uprising growing and taking back their schools and states. DC is a swamp that needs to be reined in!

      I seem to remember that there is a law that prohibits persons from profiting from criminal activity. If that is true the profits from Comey's book should be seized.

      Can you comment on the dems miraculously finding 12,000 ballots to win in New Jersey? From what I heard when this election was going on was that the ballots must be received by Friday noon to be counted. Well, it's past Friday noon now. Smells like voter fraud yet again.

      I guess the biggest disappointment I really have in these indictments coming down to the Clinton campaign is that the FBI is not kicking doors down with guns drawn ,squid cars all over the place at 4 in the morning. Seems to me turn about is fair play

      Governor Huckabee, is there nothing to be done besides "voting the bums out" America can do to defeat this administration? Is COS the only way? So far only 16 states are in for COS, and, we need 34. That is a far cry to helping us NOW. My prayers are for our God-given country. Only He can save us!

    McConnell will step down as Senate Republican Leader in November

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

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

    Get Out

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

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

    Pray for the Panhandle

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

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

    No test?!?

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

    Talk about a delicious irony

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

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

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

    Public Service Announcement

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

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




    Private School For Me, But Not For Thee

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

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


    The Best People

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