Good news

By Mike Huckabee

A St. Louis judge removed Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner from the prosecution of Mark and Patricia McCloskey, two citizens charged for brandishing guns to hold off BLM protesters who came onto their property and were threatening them and their dog. The McCloskeys were obviously within their rights of self-defense under both the Second Amendment and state law. Gov. Mike Parsons already condemned the prosecution and said he would pardon them if they were convicted.

The judge found that by sending out a fundraising letter citing her prosecution of the McCloskeys, Gardner gave the appearance of having “initiated a criminal prosecution for political purposes.”

I’d say that you hardly need the fundraising letter to make that argument. It’s not clear what might happen next. A special prosecutor could be appointed to replace Gardner, and that person could decide to dismiss the charges. Let us hope rationality prevails.

New Podcast

By Mike Huckabee

This week on “The People’s Podcast,” Governor Huckabee reminisces on the good ol’ days when the American Left protected free speech rather than oppressing it, all while recounting the radical record of Biden’s new HHS pick Xavier Becerra. Later, he catches up with Tyler Goodspeed of the White House Council of Economic Advisers on the road to economic recovery as America grapples with the pandemic.

Judge slaps down Newsom

By Mike Huckabee

Congratulations to the Thomas More Society, which just won another victory for religious freedom. This time, it was a California Superior Court judge who consulted the smackdown the SCOTUS delivered to Gov. Andrew Cuomo in New York and barred “all Covid-19 restrictions that fail to treat houses of worship equal to the favored class of entities [i.e., ‘essential businesses'”].

That link has more details, including how Newsom’s latest round of coronavirus lockdowns unconstitutionally discriminates against houses of worship while making exemptions for a long list of “essential” secular businesses, from big box stores to movie production houses. You can call allowing those places to open while shutting down churches a lot of things - religious bigotry, authoritarianism, a blatant violation of the First Amendment -- but the one thing you can't call it is "science."

Why are media reporting on the Bidens' China ties NOW?

By Mike Huckabee

Now that media interest is finally building about Hunter Biden’s laptop and the financial ties between China and the Bidens, every conservative with a brain is asking the question, “Why are we suddenly hearing about this??"

Hunter said in a statement Wednesday, “I learned yesterday for the first time that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware advised my legal counsel, also yesterday, that they are investigating my tax affairs.”

"Yesterday”?

There are reports that the Justice Department started looking into Hunter’s “tax affairs” in 2018, a year before his dad even announced his presidential campaign.

Apparently “two sources familiar with the investigation” told CBS that it began in 2018 but “went quiet during election season” because of Justice Department policy concerning “overt investigative action that could impact [an] election.”

Ah, I see. That explanation is pretty inconsistent with leaks about Trump and “Russia Russia Russia!” before the 2016 election, but okay. And it seems to have been kept quiet even before election season. I don’t recall it ever being a real story.

Thursday, FOX NEWS reported that it had reviewed a report by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee detailing Hunter’s business dealings with Ye Jianming, Gongwen Dong, and “other Chinese nationals linked to the Communist government and the People’s Liberation Army” that “resulted in millions of dollars of cash flow.” Stunning details of some of the financial transactions involving the Biden family are at the link.

The report says these associations began in 2015, while Hunter’s dad was Vice President. (Joe Biden was not a target of the investigation, according to a FOX NEWS source.) It says Joe’s brother James was an associate of Ye’s as well. As we mentioned yesterday, James is also involved in a hospital business currently under criminal investigation.

According to the report,”there exists a vast web of corporate connections and financial transactions between and among the Biden family and Chinese nationals.”

You know, it would have been really good if they’d told us about this BEFORE ELECTION DAY.

The curious thing is that this is a Senate committee, as in Republican-led. How long have they been investigating? Maybe I’m missing something, but did it really have to take them this doggone long to get their report to FOX NEWS?

Sparked in part by Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe’s recent observations about China, reports on the mainstream media’s reluctance to cover Hunter Biden specifically and the Chinese influence in general exploded all over conservative media on Thursday. I could link to countless segments on just about every show in TV and radio. Lt. Col. Oliver North, who has a well-timed new book, “AMERICA’S #1 ADVERSARY, And What We Must Do About It –- Now!,” joined Chris Salcedo on NEWSMAX to say the threat posed by China is “nothing new.”

He explained that back in the old days, our intel used to find out about relationships like Eric Swalwell's with "Fang" and take a proactive role, confronting the agent and inducing that person to "flip." Col. North said they need that kind of policy now to deal with such an adversary, who is, in this case, “a Communist Chinese special agent of their intelligence service, who is not only romancing a U.S. congressman; she’s been all over the place.” We would learn a lot by “turning” her and finding out who she’s working for and what she knows.

"Their goal is domination of the world,” North said of the Chinese. “Not just us, but the rest of the world.”

And why was she allowed to get the heck outta Dodge when she was discovered? “In large part [it was] because Donald Trump was right.” North said, “There IS a swamp. Washington DC is full of swamp monsters, many of whom stand to gain by improving the relationship with Communist China.”

So there it is. It’s not just in government, either, but in Big Tech, the entertainment world and other industries. They’ve essentially made a deal with the devil, looking at today’s bottom line and not the possibility of tomorrow’s utter domination by China. And that meant doing their bidding: helping Biden win to get Trump out. (As we’ve reported, after-election polls show that keeping Biden voters in the dark about Hunter’s China deals worked.)

Mollie Hemingway dared to say what we all know: that the Biden-China connection was deliberately downplayed to help Biden win. In an appearance on THE INGRAHAM ANGLE Wednesday, she said, ‘Nobody meddled in the 2020 election like Big Media and Big Tech, and both of those things you saw with the Hunter Biden story.”

She recalled that the laptop story broke in October with the NEW YORK POST’s report but that the POST was drastically censored by Facebook and Twitter. An eyewitness who came forward on his own, Hunter’s business associate Tony Bobulinski, was interviewed by Tucker Carlson but ignored by mainstream media. “He [Bobulinski] said himself he was interviewed by the FBI,” Hemingway said. “We knew that was happening. For people to pretend like this is brand-new news –- it’s not. They just went out of their way to suppress it when it broke on October 29th when it broke, and it’s really disgusting what we’ve seen the media do.”

Along with Big Tech and Big Media, China has infiltrated higher education as well, warned Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday in an address to the Georgia Institute of Technology. Americans colleges are becoming “hooked on Chinese Communist Party cash,” he said, while our cutting-edge research goes to China. “Americans must know how the Chinese Communist Party is poisoning the well of our higher education institutions for its own ends, and how those actions degrade our freedoms and American national security,” he said. This report from THE EPOCH TIMES is a must-read.

Finally, Dan Bongino’s podcast is always good, but Thursday’s (Episode 1412) is a must-see, along with the articles in his show notes (“Dan’s News Picks”).

Perhaps the most important item in his recommended reading is the article by Glenn Greenwald, who (for someone whose politics are to the left of mine) shows incredible insight on what the media have been doing with this story and why. We’ve been following his writings at Substack.com and suggest you do, too.

Greenwald analyzes that lecture we commented on by Chinese professor Di Dongsheng, who is candid about how China benefits from associations within the U.S. government and on Wall Street. The Biden relationship figures in, big-time.

One chilling observation in light of the hammer starting to come down on Biden’s finances: according to CNBC, Wall Street cheered the selection of Kamala Harris for Biden’s ticket. During her brief presidential campaign, she was deluged with “contributions from executives in a wide range of industries, including TV, film, TV, real estate and finance” –- industries, I would add, where China has made huge inroads. I’m sure I’m not alone in theorizing she’s their ultimate pick, and that the chess pieces are being moved around the board right now to make that happen if Biden is inaugurated. Why else would the media start exposing the Bidens' China ties now?

Time to reply all on the "Unity" email Joe

By Mike Huckabee

Someone had better pass around the memo from Joe Biden about “unity” because it appears a lot of Democrats haven’t received it yet. Like Michigan State Rep. Cynthia Johnson, last seen trying to intimidate witnesses at a hearing into election night irregularities. Johnson claims that she received racist death threats after that, and she responded with a live Facebook message in which she said:

“So this is just a warning to you Trumpers. Be careful. Walk lightly. We ain’t playing with you. Enough of the shenanigans. Enough is enough…And for those of you who are soldiers, you know how to do it. Do it right. Be in order. Make them pay.”

The Speaker and Speaker-elect of the Michigan House issued a joint statement declaring that threats against any public official of either party “are unacceptable and un-American. They’re even more unbecoming of an elected official. Rep. Johnson has been removed from her committee assignments, and we are looking into further disciplinary action as the proper authorities conduct their own investigations.”

Personal note: I strongly condemn anyone making racist comments or death threats against any political figure, regardless of the provocation. There are acceptable ways to protest and to challenge injustices and file grievances, but that’s both un-American and un-Christian.

The Speaker and Speaker-elect, though, make a good point when they say it’s even more unbecoming from an elected official. These are people entrusted with power over others and who take a sacred oath to defend the Constitution. They should take that responsibility seriously, but if they can’t manage that, the least they can do is try to act like adults and not threaten people who oppose their views like a schoolyard bully. This is the kind of violent, eliminationist rhetoric that inspired a deranged Bernie Bro to shoot and nearly murder Rep. Steve Scalise. That was in all the papers, so there’s no reason Rep. Johnson shouldn’t know about it.

The blog that I linked to above says her removal from committee assignments is fine, but it’s not enough: she should be removed from office. Agreed, and if the state officials won’t do it, let’s hope the voters do.

    Ditto on your comment re: Rep Johnson - I posted exactly the same thing on an article re: her - she should have been dragged out of office immediately - how is she still there, no way she is fit for that office or to represent constituents in any way - and yet, no discernable action except removal from committees. Such is the state of our political ruling system, one which has to stop and change immediately, soon and even sooner than soon because the ungodly, unrighteous, untenable and reprehensible has been allowed and tolerated by the masses for too long. Enough has been more than enough.

    The oath Congress Governors Mayors these people get elected and their donors expect them to discard the oath and install the donors request. Soros donated to many officials and he has gotten a 100% return on his investment ask the people in St Louis on the defense of their life and home if the mayor honored her oath she took. Has any violation fine or dismissal come forward no the oath means nothing the Justice departments will not take the cases the Supreme court practices the same thing. Better hope and pray Donald Trump wins the reelection the people that didn't honor the oath the people that didn't honor the law have been exposed in this election The biggest gift would to put them all in prison for a long time and strip their assets. Giving their assets to Trump voters China I hope you came up short buying this election Donald could be a bit pissed off. China owes the Americans for the death the china virus caused the unemployment befits and cares act loss of jobs you get the picture pay back could get a little rough I would ask Donald if the CCP cooperated in selling out your connections in the fraud game he may take 10% off of your bill!!!!!!

    I hope that you can help me understand what is happening in the courts. They have said that Trump has no standing to file suit before the elections because he has suffered no harm. After the election, they say he should have filed suit earlier. Is there something that I am missing. I realize they they may be different courts, but it does seem rational to me.

    So most of us are familiar with the 25th amendment which states that if the POTUS becomes unable to perform their duties, the V.P. takes over as president. So then, what about the vacant V.P. seat?

    Section 2. Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.

    Won't this be a fun 4 years!

    Remove Michigan State Representative Johnson for inciting violence? Have we forgotten about Maxine Waters instigating violence? She is a chairwoman in Federal Congress. The democrats have been whipped up into a violent rage and this is the kind of leadership they WILL vote for.

    "There are acceptable ways to protest and to challenge injustices and file grievances, but that’s both un-American and un-Christian." Well, I'm not sure this correct any more. All the court challenges have been basically dismissed without reviewing the evidence or going to trial. A great example of this is the Texas challenge before the SCOTUS. Dismissed based on the 3rd Amendment, while ignoring the 14th Amendment and Bush/Gore SCOTUS precedent. Not to mention their refusal to even look at Pennsylvania's SCOTUS unconstitutional actions before the election. The SCOTUS's actions are cowardly at best.

    Why would the Justice's not hear the case and decide before had its' merits? Are they saying that all these states, and TED CRUZ are ignorant of the constitution? Can secession actually happen as we tried in the CIVIL WAR? (wasn't anything civil about that war) It is my understanding that TRUMP has enough information to throw them all under the bus including the Clintons, Barr, etc...

    The last few paragraphs of your article about Cynthia Johnson spouting violence and threats against "Trumpers", hit a nerve. NJ gov murphy is using those same tactics (at a nicer voice) to enslave ALL New Jerseyans to "knuckle-under" to his dictatorial demands, for the good of the state? He's committed gestapo tactics against business owners who dare to defy his rules (EO;s) which, in his mind, are strict orders and are NOT law, exec orders. Life in NJ is dismal and it feels like we are living in the age of hitlerism which he is adhering to at our life's freedoms. This is a stringent and serious situation and totally against every thing our forefathers planned for a Christian living populace. This seems, to a ot of residents of New Jersey, this is the coming of a communistic regime, and we are losing faith in our future as free Americans.

    The reason for the sudden interest into the Biden case is due to the Stelwall situtation with the Chinese spy who he had a relationship. They fear that they may have been used in a intimate relationship by either the Chinese or North Korean cyber Hacking units and they have solid evidence that will ruin a lot of their careers and do not want to be caught holding back on evidence and they are coming to realization the Chinese government owns and controls the entire Biden family and their powerful friends.

    I have felt that the Dem party leaders have secretly planned all along how they could get a radical left President. Simply choose a mild mannered old “gentleman” who would appear to be moderate. Choose one who is obviously frail and most probably slowing mentally and who is amenable to following directions. Persuade him to select a radical as VP and go from there. Maybe the American electorate ARE stupid if they could not see that. They knew they had a media that would cover any potential scandal so he was a safe choice. Of course he got Chinese and Ukrainian money. Of course he did quid pro quo. He got away with it, just as Hilary got away with it. We all know the truth but getting Court acceptable evidence with a political FBI is difficult. TheN of course, Susan Rice gets a cabinet post. No one seems to care that she knowingly lied about Benghazi. Sure some of this will come out in Senate hearings. But if GOP does not win at least one of the Senate seats, Schumer will see that difficult questions are marginal. Everything is going back to being very cozy and comfy in DC. Politicians will continue to profit, coverups will be business as usual, control will increase and minorities will be made to feel even more helpless and victimized. Medicare will start to be rationed. Forget we old people. Eventually we will be encourage to end Oir lives early.

    A few comments after reading your articles. All have some useful info which I found earluer other sites..
    Another is our elected representatives have limited authority which we " loan" to them. Only empowered to represent legal citizens. The authors of the Constitution and early citizens knew.
    Last, but not least.
    The battle in Georgia is a battle between the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Social Gospel brought to life by Marxist invaders. It destroyed mainline churches who preached WW1 as the "war to end all wars"
    You would benefit by having real historians on your staff.

    "....keeping Biden voters in the dark about Hunter’s China deals worked...." To my mind, "Biden voters" will always be "in the dark!" To say the election would have 'changed' had those 9.4% Biden voters that indicated they would have voted for Trump known about this 'Biden Corruption' tells you all you need to know about "Biden Voters!" In my military days, there was the saying, "there will always be the 10% that either never gets the word or simply fail to understand the word."

    President Trump shudda/cudda/DID win this election, and it was done without the need for those 9.4% Biden voters. That 9.4% need their 'voting rights' taken (those that actually owned any) and probably institutionalized for being a danger to themselves and others! America is where she is today, in decline, due to the very same type of people representing that 9.4%, apathetic, ill-informed, and too ill-educated to find the appropriate 'outhouse' to use! Unlike the Titanic, America isn't headed for an iceberg, it is called "The Ash Heap of History."

    IMHO, VP Biden's son, and in extensive him, is being investigated now because even the Democrats do not want him to be seated, for long, in the seat of the President of United States. These politicians are not stupid. They see that he is totally incapable of being in charge of much, let alone an entire country. I believe, this is why Nancy Pelosi held a gathering of liberal politicians to discuss Amendment 25, so that they can remove him, quickly. Now that they are getting ready to do that, they have unleashed their 'helpers' in the deep state and the media to start discussing WHY Biden might need to be removed. And, they want to make it something that will 'stick'. The interesting thing here is that a VERY small group of Democrats voted for Kamala Harris during the Democratic primaries. If this is all true, it proves one thing, the elite Democrats in power today do not like Conservatives, but they also could care less what the voting Democrats want. They only care about THEM.

No Secret Service intervention nothing. I have a question as to why Governors are running people of wealth out of their states. A suggestion to states excepting these most likely Leftist have them stay for 5 years first before allowing the tax breaks from where they came from charge them the amount they pay at their former state. They should earn that right other wise people don't change their habits or ideology over nite minimum make them earn the tax reduction you will find they will follow your states ideology.
