Today's Commentary --- Guess who Bruce Ohr was working with? It's bad. -- Disturbing trend -- Banning In-N-Out? -- No surprise -- How do we fight a corrupt system, and our own cynicism? -- UN diplomacy -- Evening Edition - Daily Verse


When I said the information on Bruce Ohr’s testimony was coming out in dribs and drabs, I was not kidding. I had no sooner finished writing one update when we got another drib. A very major drib.

Recall that Ohr testified that there were people at the FBI who knew about his wife’s work for Glenn Simpson at opposition research company Fusion GPS, which was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, and his back channel communication with British ex-spy, imaginative “dossier” writer and would-be Trump nemesis Christopher Steele –- both before and after Steele was officially considered an acceptable source –- and that behind closed doors he “named names.” Now we’re learning the names.

Disturbing trend

By Mike Huckabee

This trend I wrote about this week of trying to harm your political opponents by ascribing the worst possible motives to whatever they say or do has become epidemic.  When someone talks positively about socialism, I assume they’re poorly informed, not evil or clinically insane – at least, until they prove otherwise. 

Kevin D. Williamson’s entertaining new piece for National Review, “The Exquisite Sensibilities of the Outrage Industry,” explores some similar ideas about people who are constantly digging for things to express offense about, sparked by complaints about a character in the hit movie, “Crazy Rich Asians.”  He has a great quote, from the Elmore Leonard character, US Marshal Raylan Givens from “Justified” (I’m substituting the word “jerk” for the saltier term in the original, but the meaning is the same):

“If you get up in the morning and you meet (a jerk), you met (a jerk). If you meet nothing but (jerks) all day, you’re the (jerk.)”

It seems to me this principle also works with “racist,” “sexist,” “fascist” and all the terms from the panoply of popular PC pejoratives.  For instance, if you think you’re fighting “fascists,” but you go around punching little old ladies and terrified teenagers in the face because everyone to the right of you is a “fascist,” then you’re the fascist.


Boycotting In-N-Out?

By Mike Huckabee

Do I sense another Chick-Fil-A Day on the horizon? Some California Democrats, who routinely demonstrate their tolerance for diversity by trying to silence and destroy anyone who holds a different opinion, discovered that the In-N-Out burger chain donated $25,000 to the California Republican Party. Well, they didn’t exactly “discover” it: a journalist found the records and performed the same function as a medieval peasant yelling, “She’s a witch!!” And the chairman of the California Democratic Party, Eric Bauman, performed the role of the judge who declares, “BURN HER!” by calling for a boycott of delicious In-N-Out burgers.

It’s not clear what the political philosophy of In-N-Out corporate is, although the late founder was a Republican and an Evangelical, and his daughter, the current President, is a devout Christian (explaining the Biblical quotes on the burger wrappers.) Maybe they don’t like the open hostility of the far-left California Democrats to people of faith. Or maybe they just don’t like the economic policies of the state’s liberal leadership, who don’t do much to help any businesses except moving van companies. That seems fairly likely, considering they’ve also donated to PACs that support moderate Democrats.

But whatever the chain’s motivation may be, it is enlightening to hear that Eric Bauman, chairman of the self-proclaimed guardians of tolerance and diversity in the most “progressive” of states, is urging Democrats to drive the chain into bankruptcy and cause all their employees to lose their jobs simply because they contributed a piddling amount (considering their cash flow) to insure that other voices are heard besides Eric Bauman’s and those lucky enough to share the only thoughts and opinions he thinks should be allowed.    

I don’t know about you, but I’m suddenly feeling really hungry for a Double-Double Cheeseburger Animal-Style.


No surprise

By Mike Huckabee

I doubt you’ll be surprised to hear that Omarosa Manigault Newman’s claim that the problems she had in her White House job were due to the people who worked with her being racists is disputed by pretty much all the people who worked with her, including African-American Republican leaders, Congressional aides, White House staffers and black college officials, who say the problem was her “my way or the highway” attitude, her aggressive guarding of her turf, her maneuvering to advance herself and her hostility to black Republicans in general (she was reportedly a self-described Democrat and an early Hillary supporter.)

How do we fight a corrupt system, and our own cynicism?

By Mike Huckabee

Friday night, I went on Sean Hannity’s show with guest host Jason Chaffetz to talk about malfeasance at the FBI regarding the Bruce Ohr testimony and the fraudulent FISA warrant applications --- all the things we’ve been talking about here.  I described the situation as “the three C’s”:  corruption, conspiracy and cover-up.”  We might also add the word “clouds,” because just when a big dose of sunshine might be the best disinfectant with which to attack the disease, the media are doing all they can to cloud the facts.  One of the most disgraceful and disheartening things of all is the utter lack of interest that most in the media have in addressing the problem.

Lindsay Graham has now come out and said what we’ve been observing for some time:  that if the situation were reversed –- if Republicans had pulled the same kind of underhanded and unconstitutional tricks to spy on Hillary’s campaign, investigate her when she’d done nothing wrong (hard to imagine her doing nothing wrong, but we’re talking hypothetically here), and keep her out of power –- the media would be screaming bloody murder about it.  Can you even imagine the collective rage that would clog the airwaves and editorial pages?  But since this was done to Donald Trump, we haven’t been able to trust the mainstream media to expose any of it.  They dismiss it as a "distraction."  If it weren’t for a relative handful of undeterred reporters and analysts such as Sara A. Carter, John Solomon, Gregg Jarrett, Catherine Herridge and watchdogs such as Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, we wouldn’t have ever found out what we sadly know to be true.



UN diplomacy

By Mike Huckabee

If we’re going to remain in the UN, then President Trump has definitely found the perfect US Ambassador to that dubious organization in Nikki Haley. She’s shut off the flow of our tax money to countries that chant “Death to America.” And if you’ve noticed less Israel bashing from the UN lately, it’s reportedly because all the UN diplomats (i.e., traffic scofflaws with diplomatic immunity) are too afraid of her to open their big, dumb, anti-Semitic yaps and express it.

Now, that’s how to do UN diplomacy, American-style! Let’s hope the representatives of some nations that don’t protect the rights of women take some of that fear and respect for Ambassador Haley back home and apply it to their own female populations.

    Will someone please tell me why these FBI & DOJ officials, who clearly violated the law, aren't brought up on criminal charges. Who is in charge here anyway?

    The framers would be stunned at what's going on today in politics.
