Thank you, Carolyn
I just want to thank you Mr. HUCKABEE for this newsletter. I learn more about what is going on in our country than in any other way. I sincerely hope that the people of our nation come to their senses and really see what those currently in power have in store for all of us. Stay informed and help return our country to its people.
The RNC has passed a powerful resolution demanding a return to secure elections. The bad news: it’s going to take more than a powerful resolution when the other side is diametrically opposed to that goal.
A former mobster explained to Fox News’ Jesse Watters how his money-laundering operation that involved a series of bogus shell companies that were nothing but bank accounts looked exactly like the Biden family business model. As for the claim that there’s no evidence any funds were given directly to Joe Biden, he explains that that’s the whole point.
He also calls this “a slam-dunk RICO case” (you know: a REAL racketeering case) and says that if he or his mob associates had done the same thing, they’d “have been indicted a long time ago.”
96 in August
Government and Big Tech working together to censor conservative views, is a big reason why we changed things up and moved my newsletter to Substack.
Because you are a free subscriber to my newsletter, I would like you to consider subscribing to the paid version on Substack.
A Substack subscription-based newsletter allows my team and I to focus on what matters: the writing and the research we do to back up the writing, instead of worrying about censorship, or what Google is saying about me, how they are handling advertising on our website or whether or not my work shows up when you search for it.
To keep the newsletter going, we have setup a monthly goal of identifying 600 new paying subscribers for the month of August and we have 96 to go.
If you can afford to do so, please subscribe here:
To become a paid subscriber of my politics newsletter it is $5 monthly or $36 annually. I email daily and my politics newsletters usually take 10-15 minutes to read. I cover the news of the day and the liberal media. I write about the upcoming elections and dive deep on the Biden scandals. I will also share my opinion of the Trump indictment. I don’t think you will regret reading my newsletter regularly, so please consider subscribing today.
As if anyone needed another lesson by this point that you can’t ignore local elections and let local offices be taken over by radical leftists backed by outside dark money groups, check out what’s happening in Hennepin County, Minnesota. “Progressive” County Attorney Mary Moriarty, whose campaign was boosted by $231,000 in support from the leftist group TakeAction Minnesota, is following the lead of all such DAs by prosecuting police and releasing criminals. But the latest outrage may prove the last straw, with some residents demanding a recall election..
A man accused of armed robbery stole a vehicle and led police on a high-speed chase that resulted in a crash that killed 20-year-old Leneal Frazier. Moriarty prosecuted and convicted Brian Cummings, the cop who was driving, for criminal vehicular homicide, while dropping all charges against the alleged robber who started the chase, claiming it was “due to an inability to prove all of the charges beyond a reasonable doubt at this time.” At least he does remain in custody on other charges.
Cummings' attorney blasted Moriarty, saying his client “risked his life many times to protect people. He sits in jail, while “a gun toting thief, who bears responsibility for the death of Leneal Frazier, and stole from the innocent gets a break? Minneapolis is a better place to be a criminal than a law enforcement officer.”
Sadly, that’s true of most Democrat-run cities these days. People don’t bother with local races, and the left has learned that that’s the way to sneak into power and destroy from within, like rats finding a hole in your siding. This is how “prosecutors” who only prosecute cops and citizens who try to stop criminals, get into power. A seemingly “small, local election” can make a huge difference in people’s lives. Voters in these cities had better start paying closer attention because the ballot box is about the only weapon of self-defense they still have.
Vampyre Cosmetics, which describes itself as "proudly women owned, disabled owned and LGBT+ owned," released a statement saying they have canceled a planned line of makeup endorsed by rocker Alice Cooper because of his (eminently reasonable) comments about “transing” kids being “a fad.” They posted on their website, "We believe gender is a construct and has no place in our business” and “believe everyone should have access to healthcare.” (Editor’s note: Disfiguring confused children with unnecessary, permanent, body-altering drugs and surgery is not “healthcare.” It’s barbarism.)
Does anyone else think it’s hilariously ironic that the “edgy” makeup company Vampyr Cosmetics dropped their endorsement deal with the king of shock rock because he said something too shocking: that if you have male genitalia, you’re male; and if you have female genitalia, you’re female. They’re about as edgy as a muffin!
I read something recently that I thought was a great point, and I’m sorry I can’t remember the source, but it was that the left wants to force everyone to say they believe that men can become women and women become men because if they can make you agree to that without protest, they can make you agree to anything without protest.

While a number of people are calling for a return to mask mandates, a study shared by the NIH found that N95 surgical masks (the only kind that might do any good against COVID) expose wearers to eight times the recommended safety limit of toxic volatile organic compounds that have been linked to headaches, nausea, and in prolonged expose (like we’re being pressured to experience), organ failure and cancer.
Residents of Oregon are increasingly supporting the repeal of their vote to decriminalize hard drugs. Who could've predicted that would have a down side?
And you know how we all had to switch to paper straws because plastic straws were destroying the environment, according to…a 9-year-old’s science project? Well, now we’re being warned that the paper straws may contain “forever chemicals” that harm human health. They also turn to mush after about three sucks.
Derek Hunter on the history of Democrats lying about Republicans being “the next Hitler” or worse than Hitler. Also, the history of real dictators, who are uniformly on the left, what they do when they get into power, and how it’s exactly what the Biden White House is starting to do.
And Alan Joseph Bauer, a writer from a family so deeply Democratic that his mother used to say “Better a dead Democrat than a live Republican,” lists the reasons why he is now urging everyone he knows, “Don’t vote Democratic.” It’s not your mom’s Democratic Party anymore.
The More You Know…
Since Jack Smith’s most recent round of charges against President Trump are based on the idea that he knew he legitimately lost the election because he was told that by “experts,” it seems reasonable to take a look at who these so-called “experts” were. Revolver News did that and dug up some jaw-dropping info. In addition to the expected round-up of Deep State intelligence spooks who’d spent his entire Administration lying to and about Trump and trying to frame and remove him, there was also an agency you might not have even heard of until recently called CISA, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.
This shadowy cabal came to public notice recently when the House Subcommittee on the Weaponization of Government revealed that CISA illegally set up a social media censorship division during the run-up to the election to pressure social media platforms to silence users, and then tried to cover it up when it was exposed. But (surprise!) it gets worse.
The founding director of CISA is Chris Krebs. The Foundation for Freedom looked into his past statements and discovered that he makes Joseph Stalin look like a Libertarian. To cite just a few examples:
He thought the Hunter Biden laptop looked like Russian disinformation but didn’t care if it was or not; the important thing was that the media not cover it before the election. He believed that every lawyer who represented conservatives challenging election irregularities should be permanently disbarred and banned from ever practicing law again. He hoped conservative news outlets would be bankrupted by Dominion Voting Systems’ lawsuits, and that the same should happen to anyone in the media who questioned voting machines in 2020 (which he helped administer.) He had the same totalitarian views of anyone who questioned the government’s COVID-19 protocols, even wanting to censor humorous T-shirts. He even canceled his own Direct TV subscription just because they carried the conservative network OANN.
And Trump claims he didn’t believe it when people like this guy told him the election was on the up-and-up and his loss was totally legitimate? Well, obviously, he should be imprisoned!
(Please note, Mr. Smith, that I said that last part, so you can’t indict me, too. And if you claim I was just being sarcastic, I’ll say, “NO! Why, that’s RIDICULOUS!!”)
"Kicked in the gut"
Between claiming the border is secure, backing the castration of children, and congratulating itself on the great “Bidenomics” economy, I didn’t think it was possible for this Administration to become any more tone deaf or divorced from reality. But as Obama once said, never underestimate Joe Biden’s ability to (BLEEP) things up.
And so, as we approach the anniversary of possibly the darkest day in American history, September 11th (no, Joe, not January 6th), the Biden Administration is reportedly working on a plea deal to spare the planners of that incomprehensible terrorist mass murder from the death penalty.
Under the deal, the architect of 9/11, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and four alleged co-conspirators would “accept criminal responsibility for their actions and plead guilty…in exchange for not receiving the death penalty,” according to CBS News. One man whose brother was killed in the assault on the World Trade Center said, “Here we are on the eve of the 22nd anniversary of 9/11, and we are getting kicked in the gut by our own government once again.”
Others called it embarrassing, a betrayal and negotiating with terrorists, and suggested that it’s meant to keep the terrorists from revealing information about any Saudi role in 9/11.
Many survivors of 9/11 victims are enraged over this, but they can forget about confronting Biden over it during the upcoming commemoration ceremonies. Instead of attending the traditional ceremonies in New York City, Virginia or Pennsylvania, Biden will be in Alaska on 9/11.
He’ll be returning from a G20 summit in India, where he’s reportedly thinking of privately meeting with Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman to discuss a US-Saudi mega-deal. You know, the Saudi leader whom candidate Biden attacked Trump for dealing with and said he was going to make him “pay the price” and make him a “pariah” over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Does Biden even remember that? Does he remember 9/11? All signs point to “no.”

If you missed my interview with Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who might be the last prominent Democrat politician with any sense at all, then you have to watch this. Among other important topics, we discussed border security and the disaster Biden has made of it. RFK did what our “border czar” Kamala Harris has never done: he actually went to the border and watched what’s happening there, as buses filled with 55 illegal entrants apiece, all paying the Mexican cartels to bring them, arrive over and over, all day long, day in and day out.
Top aide to Trump Special Counsel was visiting Biden White House
So, how much contact has the office of so-called “independent” Trump special counsel Jack Smith had with the Biden White House?
(NOTE: Just read through that question again in light of the fact that we’re in the middle of a presidential campaign between Trump and Biden. We should not have to ask such a question.)
As Jesse Watters reported Monday evening, White House visitor logs suggest that a pretext for the Mar-A-Lago raid might have been determined in meetings there, and that the special counsel’s work is likely still being coordinated from there.
While Trump was in the process of negotiating with the National Archives about the materials he had moved to Mar-A-Lago, Jay Bratt of the DOJ, who is now top aide to Special Counsel Smith, visited the White House three times to meet first with deputy White House Counsel Chief of Staff Caroline Saba and, for the third meeting, White House Chief of Staff Adviser Katherine Reily. An FBI agent from the DC field office, Danielle Ray, also attended one of the meetings. It seems Bratt didn’t want to waste time negotiating with the Archives; he was itching to raid the place, and he encouraged the White House to go ahead with that plan. Or maybe they were just as on board from the start; who knows?
Recall that Bratt was the one who visited Mar-A-Lago not long before the raid and advised security personnel to put an additional lock on the door to the basement where allegedly classified documents were held. This was done, but President Biden later signed off on the raid anyway, and after the FBI got a warrant (from a local magistrate and Obama donor), armed agents went in by land, sea and air. That was August 8 of last year, a day that will live in infamy.
After Trump had already been indicted by the Biden ‘Justice’ Department, Bratt was appointed top aide to Special Counsel Smith. Then, in March of this year, Bratt returned to the White House for the third time. Weeks after that, Trump received another indictment, this one over those so-called “classified” Mar-A-Lago documents. Watters asks the big question:
“Why is the Biden White House conspiring with the Justice Department and the special counsel’s office to prosecute Donald Trump?”
Publicly, Biden has had no comment on the case --- not that he comments on much of anything --- and says he’s had nothing to do with it. He said, “I have never, once, not one single time, suggested to the Justice Department what they should do or not do relative to bringing a charge or not bringing a charge.” Well, maybe he actually is telling the truth and didn’t conspire with them one single time. Maybe he conspired with them a number of times. The visitor logs certainly suggest that.
(This might be a good place to mention that Biden also says he’s never, once, not one single time, spoken with any member of his family about their foreign business dealings.)
It’s sad to have to be so cynical these days. But there’s a good reason: the Biden White House’s utter lack of transparency about the “Biden family business” and also the administration’s blatant moves to commit massive “lawfare” against its #1 political opponent. As noted yesterday, the government, as evidenced by what we already know, is “guilty until proven innocent.” Consistent with that view, look at the rushed court dates that are lining up to coincide with critical times for the GOP primary and ‘24 election.
Trump immediately announced that he would appeal the latest court date of the day before Super Tuesday, which couldn’t scream “Election Interference” any louder if it were Stacey Abrams with a megaphone.
Even THE NEW YORK TIMES reported that Biden was a force behind the hurry-up timeline. Thanks to Watters for highlighting this quote: “Mr. Biden confided to his inner circle that he believed former President Donald J. Trump was a threat to democracy and should be prosecuted, according to two people familiar with his comments.” Also, “...while the president has never communicated his frustrations directly to Mr. Garland, he has said privately that he wanted Mr. Garland to act less like a ponderous judge and more like a PROSECUTOR [emphasis ours] who is willing to take decisive action.”
He didn’t have to speak directly to Garland to make his wishes known. With his words, Biden was using the power of his office to go after a political rival. Isn’t some pale version of that what Trump got impeached for? Trump simply mentioned it, almost in passing, to a foreign leader in a phone call, while according to NYT sources, Biden personally pushed in behind-closed-doors White House meetings to mobilize the direct force of the American judicial system to prosecute Trump.
You know, the case could easily be made right here and now that if Biden directed his “inner circle” to do this, it was an impeachable offense.
Here’s a good write-up on that story, from the NEW YORK POST…
Of course, it’s impossible to tell from the visitor logs what was discussed during these meetings. But given the timing and context, it seems pretty obvious. As reported by the NY POST, “Critics and legal experts questioned why Bratt was taking meetings at all with the White House counsel’s office while part of an active investigation into President Biden’s likely 2024 Republican opponent.”
Former NYC mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, when asked if he believed the White House and special counsel were coordinating their prosecution of Trump, said, “You’re damn right I do. What’s happening is, they have trashed every ethical rule that exists, and they have created a state police. It is a Biden state prosecutor and a Biden state police.” (Of course, you know that Giuliani himself has been indicted in Fulton County, Georgia, because a grand jury disagreed with the private [make that “private”] and personal legal advice he gave Trump.)
Recall that Bratt was in the news in June of this year, when the U.K. GUARDIAN reported that Stanley Woodward, the attorney for indicted Trump valet Walt Nauta, accused Bratt of bringing up his impending judgeship during a conversation about getting his client to “flip” and testify against Trump. This is an extremely serious charge. Woodward has an absolutely stellar reputation, and people who know him say it’s unthinkable that he would make it up. Congress is looking into it.
Anyway, mark my word, with all the left’s lip service to “democracy,” this is about the opposite of democracy. It’s ALL about keeping Trump off the ballot next year. If the tactics they’ve tried don’t work, they’ll try others. They are utterly deluded; they’ve so demonized Trump that they’re heroes in their own minds for doing everything they can to stop him.
And with the Fulton County arrest and Trump mugshot backfiring spectacularly, the next tactic will have to be to misuse the 14th Amendment to disqualify him for office. Here’s how the mainstream news reports that, if you’re so inclined to see it…
A far better investment of your time would be the analysis of law Prof. Michael McConnell (who notes he is not a fan of Trump) about the “profoundly anti-democratic” abuse of the 14th Amendment. If this precedent is set, partisan politicians at the state level will disqualify their opponents for public office. Highly recommended reading...
RELATED READING: I already wrote about this, but “in case you missed it,” it’s a must-read piece in REVOLVER NEWS from earlier this month, explaining how this most recent indictment of President Trump is, in effect, criminalizing what we might call “election denial.” You’d think nobody had ever questioned an election before, when we know Democrats do it ALL the time.
This piece takes a look at the “experts” Trump was expected to believe about the validity of the election results, notably those at the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, or “CISA.” CISA was so concerned about controlling narratives that they even set up, without legal authorization, a social media censorship division that even tried to censor humor. (Them’s fightin’ words!) These were propagandists led by head propagandist Chris Krebs, a cybersecurity expert from Microsoft who wanted to make sure the Hunter laptop story stayed hidden till after the 2020 election and even to see conservative media shut down.
So, Trump was supposed to believe “experts” like HIM about the election? Why should he have? And why should he have believed the intel community, after they tried to frame him for being a Russian agent? No, Trump had plenty of reason to question any narrative they put forth, including about the election. And questioning election results is not a crime.
By the way, here’s something else that was hidden in 2020: Did you know that fired prosecutor Viktor Shokin filed a complaint with Ukraine’s National Bureau of Investigation that year demanding an investigation of Joe Biden for “illegal influence on him as the prosecutor general of Ukraine” while he was investigating Burisma Holdings? No? Neither did anybody else.
Shokin claimed that Biden’s demand that he be fired violated Article 243 of the Ukrainian Criminal Code. He said it was “interference in the internal affairs of Ukraine on the part of a foreign power in violation of one of the principles of international law.”
Finally, guess how many documents the National Archives has bearing Biden synonyms “Robert L. Peters,” “Robin Ware” and “JRB Ware”? If you guessed a whopping 5,400...you win! Many thanks to the Southeastern Legal Foundation, which filed the FOIA request over a year ago. On Monday, they sued for the release of the unredacted records...
At the time of this writing early on Tuesday morning, a state of emergency is in effect for much of Florida as Hurricane Idalia approaches the southwest coast as a category 1 hurricane. By the time it makes landfall, it’s expected to intensify to an even stronger storm with devastating winds and rain and potentially life-threatening storm surges.
If you live in its path, I hope you’ve evacuated, and if not, I hope you are prepared and that you and your animals will be safe. Please keep a close eye on the weather news and follow any emergency orders. Here's a link to a live stream of Fox News hurricane coverage.
The rest of us are praying for your safety and for Florida.
