The House Intelligence Committee has been trying for some time to find out what role the infamous Trump dossier, paid for by the DNC and Hillary’s campaign, played in the decision to investigate possible collusion between Trump and Russia. Given the official oversight power of the House over the intelligence community, you’d think the FBI might be a little more forthcoming about something like that, but they’ve behaved oddly, keeping their information about it very close to the vest.

But while some news outlets have been obsessed with the number of Diet Cokes the President drinks and with finding ways to implicate him under the new sexual misconduct zero-tolerance policy --- which, don’t kid yourself, is the ultimate purpose of Democrats’ sudden concern for respectful treatment of women --- a few real journalists have been uncovering some truly stunning connections.

NY Bus station bomber update

By Mike Huckabee

More info about the would-be New York bus station bomber: the NYPD says he told them what his motivation was.  He was protesting “Israel’s incursion into Gaza.”  It’s not clear what that means, but then, it’s also not clear why anyone would protest an Israeli security policy by blowing up a bunch of innocent people 5700 miles away in a bus terminal in New York. 

You’ll also be interested to learn that his family is “outraged” – over the heavy-handed way that the NYPD responded to their son, the mad bomber.  Yes, I’m sure the cops are the bad guys and they’re the real victims here.

Mexican baloney

By Mike Huckabee

Huck’s Criminal Mastermind of the Day:  A woman was stopped by border agents as she was driving from Mexico into El Paso, Texas.  A search of her car turned up, hidden beneath the rear seat and in the trunk, about 100 kilos of illegal contraband…baloney.  That’s about 200 pounds of baloney, or 23 tubes, or approximately 15 CNN scoops.  The woman was fined $1,000, and the agents seized and destroyed the baloney (Burp!)

Here’s my question: Did she seriously think that the Customs Service dogs were not going to smell 200 pounds of Mexican baloney?

Chain immigration connection

By Mike Huckabee

The White House noted that the New York bomb suspect came into the US in 2011 from Bangladesh using an F43 family immigrant visa.  This is part of the “chain immigration” policy that President Trump has been trying to end in the interests of national security.  Trump’s statement says our current lax immigration system “allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people to access our country.”

It’s not clear yet whether this suspect was directly involved with or inspired by ISIS, but they have been releasing graphics that show threatening figures in Times Square at Christmas.  New York City represents a deep blue enclave filled with liberals who adamantly oppose Trump’s immigration reforms.  But if it turns out that a foreign national did exploit that system to come to America, then try to blow up a bunch of New Yorkers on the public transit system, will that be enough to make them rethink their support of open borders, no matter who they’re letting in?  Worth noting: the place where this attempted bombing occurred is just one block from the New York Times Building, so obviously, terrorist bombers cut no slack for those who are defending the policies they exploit.

California fires

By Mike Huckabee

The California fires are contained or close to it in some places, but still spreading in others, and they’re difficult to stop due to the mountainous terrain, high winds and dry conditions.  In fact, one factor very few people mention is that due to the perfect fire conditions, California’s vegetation has evolved over centuries to burn off.  Gov. Jerry Brown is attempting to politicize the fires by blaming them on global warming and attacking President Trump (he “has no fear of the wrath of God!”) for pulling out of the Paris Climate Accords (obviously the reason for the California fires) -- while at the same time requesting federal assistance from Trump, an odd persuasion strategy, indeed.  At least he didn’t go full Chelsea Handler and suggest that the world was burning because Trump was elected.

Trash talk war

Remember the West Point student who outraged Americans, especially veterans, with his social media posts openly promoting his communist sympathies and disparaging Secretary of Defense James Mattis?  Incredibly, he was allowed to graduate and assigned to the U.S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division, where if I were one of his comrades, I wouldn’t be too sure of his loyalties if bullets started flying. 

I hope we haven’t heard the end of that story yet, but in the meantime, there’s a funny sidebar.  The Army may have won last weekend’s Army-Navy football game, but thanks to the Army Commie, the Navy students won the trash talk war.

    Why is Hillary and Obama still on this planet! I know it's not your fault Mr. Huckabee but I am mad at President Trump. I write articles supporting and defending his wisdom and love of the American Legal Citizens. However, I just got a glimpse of the so called "tax reform" and I (once again) am left to struggle as the working poor. I find his decision to raise my 10% to 12% appalling! I no longer put my integrity on the line for him. We are truly hurting with all the taxes on low income. He's a disgrace. I am saddened to know my hope is gone and continue to struggle with high health care and high taxes. What's the use.

    Regarding the causes of the California wildfire, here is an interesting passage from Richard Henry Dana's "Two Years Before the Mast," published in 1840, having been written after a two-year sea voyage from Boston to California on a merchant ship starting in 1834. "Two points ran out as the horns of the crescent, one of which – the one to the westward – was low and sandy, and is that to which vessels are obliged to give a wide berth when running out for a south-easter; the other is high, bold, and well wooded, and, we were told, has a mission upon it, called St. Buenaventura, from which the point is named. In the middle of this crescent, directly opposite the anchoring ground, lie the mission and town of Santa Barbara, on a low, flat plain, but little above the level of the sea, covered with grass, though entirely without trees, and surrounded on three sides by an amphitheatre of mountains, which slant off to the distance of fifteen or twenty miles. The mission stands a little back of the town, and is a large building, or rather a collection of buildings, in the centre of which is a high tower, with a belfry of five bells; and the whole, being plastered, makes quite a show at a distance, and is the mark by which vessels come to anchor. The town lies a little nearer to the beach – about half a mile from it – and is composed of one-story houses built of brown clay – some of them plastered – with red tiles on the roofs. I should judge that there were about an hundred of them; and in the midst of them stands the Presidio, or fort, built of the same materials, and apparently but little stronger. The town is certainly finely situated, with a bay in front, and an amphitheatre of hills behind. The only thing which diminishes its beauty is, that the hills have no large trees upon them, they having been all burnt by a great fire which swept them off about a dozen years before, and they had not yet grown up again. The fire was described to me by an inhabitant, as having been a very terrible and magnificent sight. The air of the whole valley was so heated that the people were obliged to leave the town and take up their quarters for several days upon the beach."

    I guess there was man made global warming back then too.

    Also The log of Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo, the first European to sail along California’s coast, refers to San Pedro’s harbor as “la Baya de los Fumos,” or the Bay of the Smoke, “because of the many smokes which they saw on it. This bay is in 35 degrees and is a good port, and the country is good, with many valleys, plains, and groves.” Cabrillo's visit took place on October 8, 1542, in the middle of Santa Ana winds and fire season. Keep up the good work!
