In the United States of America, one thing that’s not supposed to happen is the FBI spying on a presidential campaign, which we now know they did. But do you know what’s really, REALLY not supposed to happen?

The CIA doing it.

The FBI deals with malfeasance within our borders, and it’s supposed to respect the rights of American citizens –- at least in theory, which appears to have gone horribly wrong. As for the CIA, it isn’t supposed to do domestic spying; it’s in the national security business and deals with intelligence gathering internationally. It doesn’t have to go before judges and get warrants to spy on people. It’s not intended to be weaponized against Americans here in our country, and to use it that way would be a serious abuse of power. When it comes to the investigation into the Trump campaign, though, there appears to be a disturbing blurring of lines. It’s way past time to take a closer look at former CIA Director John Brennan.

The first thing to say about Brennan is that he is out of his mind, as is obvious to anyone who has read his tweets since Trump settled into the Presidency and, item-by-item, started reversing Obama’s many executive orders, saving us from ridiculous agreements such as the Iran deal and the Paris Climate Accord, appointing judges who actually respect the Constitution, and otherwise dismantling the Barack Obama “legacy.” Brennan and his cohorts just can’t stand it. And Brennan’s unfettered tweeting gives us a scary glimpse into the sensibilities and political motivations that must have driven him when he headed Obama’s CIA. The man is so filled with hate for Trump, he makes Peter Strzok and Lisa Page look like FOX News contributors.


Commentary continues below advertisement


Speaking of FOX News contributors, Monica Crowley has a great column in The Hill in which she examines the role likely played by Brennan in the “Russia” investigation. She calls him “the apparent ringmaster of the ‘deep state’ resistance” and explains how the groundwork was laid for the CIA to be able to go after Americans –- indirectly, so whatever they turned up wouldn’t have their fingerprints on it.

In 2011 (before Obama’s re-election campaign), the U.S. intelligence community gave itself vastly expanded powers, allowing itself to surveil Americans who had even just once mentioned a foreign target. And all those communications by Americans that former CIA Director James Clapper said were “unwittingly” scooped up (lie) were saved in a searchable database, ripe for the unmasking.

Combine this with Brennan’s “modernization” program, which cut back on the CIA’s human intelligence capability and started depending more on relationships with foreign intelligence services such as Britain’s MI-6, and it’s easy to see how such outsourcing offered them more flexibility to obtain intelligence on Americans that our own spies weren’t supposed to be gathering. They could distance themselves from the actual spying and dirt-digging, just as Hillary did with her law firm and Fusion GPS.

Crowley notes the variety of foreign sources and contacts involved in gathering the so-called “intelligence” that was used against Trump: the imaginative Russian “dossier” put together by British former MI-6 agent Christopher Steele; the Kremlin-linked sources used by Steele; former MI-6 chief Richard Dearlove, who has a close association with “informant” (spy) Stefan Halper (who is a U.S. citizen but teaches at Cambridge in Great Britain).

In addition, there’s Alexander Downer, an Australian diplomat who reportedly also has links to British intelligence (and also to Hillary); he’s the source for the tale of George Papadopoulos’ drunking bragging about Russia having Hillary Clinton emails. And where did that allegedly happen? London.

it’s easy to see that with this kind of international spider-web, the CIA can put itself in the domestic intelligence-gathering (spying) business when it comes to American citizens it wants to surveil (spy on). With Trump in the Oval Office, the whole contrivance is threatened with exposure, and we’ve probably just scratched the surface. You can bet that’s why they’re going insane trying to bring him down before we can find out what they’ve been up to.

    Thank you for continuing to support President Trump and for continuing your efforts to bring the truth to the American people. You are a brave and humble American and we love you (and your daughter Sarah, who is definitely her Daddy's daughter!).

    Thank you Mike for all your information. I attend a weekly prayer meeting out here on the Oregon Coast and we pray for Washington DC, Pres. Trump, and as God leads we pray around the world and it's uncanny how often we pray for something and then it's on FOX News in the evening. We pray for God to expose wickedness in high places which He's certainly done. We've prayed consistently for Pres. Obama & his family to be saved and the same for George Soros and Clintons. But what good does it do I wonder? But if God can save me He can save anyone! I have quite a unique God story that one day I'd love to share with you! But...as far as I'm concerned Pres. Obama, both Clinton's, and anyone connected with the FBI or CIA that not only did what they did to Pres. Trump but what really galls me is them selling our uranium to Russia! Isn't this treason? Against the people of America? Not to mention the vows they all took to uphold our beloved Constitution of the United States? God showed me that what's been done is a lot like Haman when he planned the scaffold for Mordecai. So we've been praying that whatever is planned against our country will backfire and trap them! SOON! Where is the Attorney General? Why isn't he doing his job? I believe he should be fired because he's turned such a blind eye to what's going on right under his nose! He should be fired and so should all of Obama's tattle tales! I'm a 79 year old woman and Ive seen many scandals, but this is TREASON from the word GO! I knew when Obama got in that he'd ruin our country but everything that's gone on just keeps going on and no one is stopping him or Soros of Clinton's! Where is Justice? I'm angry about the lack of concern in many who just turn a blind eye and say: "Oh, isn't that too bad?" I was in DC during the Watergate Scandal and it was mild to what's going on now. "Please God, give us justice!!" I can't imagine what our fore fathers would think and George Washington who, right after his inauguration, took his cabinet to the little church that is still standing in New York after 9/11 to pray and dedicate our country to God. I'm anxious that God restores to America what the locusts have been eating away at and so far accomplishing! God bless you, Mike, I've read your book and followed you for a long time and I was so glad that God gave you another program for us to watch. I pray it continues and you continue to tell it like it is! Thank You!

I hope you have the best year ever and as you mentioned, another 44 blessed years. I am so happy Janet survived cancer, I too am a recent cancer survivor. I would like to converse with her in an email or telephone or private message on fb. It is good for us to support one another in this area and in Christ.

    Dear Mike,
    I forward and share your letters to a list of friends with similar beliefs. I have tried to send it to a number of folk whose computer blocks it because of the quality of your ads. Now I am getting complaints almost daily about the ads contained in your news letter. I know it costs money to do these, we all know that, but the offensive ads are beginning to have a negative effect on you acceptance. I would rather have fewer letters, but of a higher quality of ads, or no ads, or I'm afraid they are going to affect even opening them. Sorry to be a complainer, but it's gone too far.

    There's some info on Big League Politics today about Stefan Halper. The Obama admin. awarded him a government contractor account on October 21, 2015, just as the Iowa campaign caucus's began. The synopsis for the contract award was, The Russia-China Relationship: The Impact on US Security Interests. This puts him in position to spy on all the Republican candidates until Trump won the nomination. He was paid more than a million dollars, starting in 2012, by the Obama Admin.. That put you, Governor Huckabee, in the Obama Admin. cross hairs, until you dropped out. This isn't Stefan Halper's first go around into election meddling, he was involved in the CIA's perceived meddling to help Bush Sr. in 1980, and has extensive ties to the Bush family. He's been an informant for the CIA for years. Somehow I knew the CIA had to have a hand in the 2016 election cycle, almost every other three letter government agency was involved. Here's the Big League Politics link, the contract award is there: https://bigleaguepolitics.com/14083-2/ Here's some more on Halper: https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/stefan-halper-cia-espionage-campaign-surveillance/2018/05/21/id/861653/

    Awesome articles this week, Mike. The CIA, etcs., stories are very frightening. When we can't trust our government, we have no government. Hopefully Trump has what it takes to clean house, but the house may be TOO big for one man to clean! LOL

    Please keep up the good work.

Did we actually trust our “leaders” to lead us down this road of destruction??? What now?? Are we so deep in a world of lies, murder and deceit that we are gonna self destruct???
    God said man would destroy himself and we are sureheaded in a spiral decline!!!

    I was one of those voters that was reluctant to have Trump as our nominee, but I thank God EVERY DAY that he was chosen and voted for him! I believe he is the only man strong enough and as stubborn enough to stand up to the Democrats and Do Nothing Republicans in Washington that are trying to bring America down, and change her to a Socialist or Communist country all to line Their pockets! Thank God for President Trump! I pray every day that he wiil stay strong and keep America a strong America!
    And thank you Mr. Huckabee for you fight and for the gift of your wonderful, beautiful, smart daughter! Sarah is a fabulous woman! I applaud her every day, tell her to keep up the good work and thank her for me and my family!
    Happy Anniversary to you and your wife.

    you make such confusion so easy to assimilate...I thank you for that. Sarah got her genes from you...:)
    Of recent thought I have not respected some of what the CIA has done. Seems to be two contingencies,
    some of which you've touched on, i.e. some weaponization against events they shouldn't. I've accrued some
    disrespect, even tho realizing there's some good reason...I feel they've fallen. Same for the FBI. The good ones
    take the brunt, always. Disintegration has taken place..It hurts....I keep praying...AlmightyGod catches us.

    First may I wish you and Janet a very Happy Anniversary. May the Lord continue to bless you both and your family.

    Second, I agree with all the information you and others are providing concerning the "Russian" mess we find our country at this time. I continuously watch FOX News Channel and read your emails daily. I know that the left's media people would call me one of the deplorable, uneducated idiots they want to control but I'm not. I have been taking a course from Hillisdale College on the Constitution and am astonished at how very little the socialist/left do not truly understand the tenants of it. When, if ever, will we the people get our country back and live without the government putting excessive control on our daily lives and get their nose out of or business.

    Lastly, thank you for your steadfast truthful reports. God bless you

    Sessions needs to go, the entire deep state of lefties and Trump haters has to go. We need an entirely new DOJ/FBI to do their jobs.
    Trump has done such a great job, with one hand tied behind his back, imagine what he could do with both hands free!
    Congratulations on 44 years of marriage, mine lasted 37 before my knight in shinning armor passed.

    05/25/2018 01:00 PM

    Dear Governor,
    ORDERING the Obama lackeys to spy on the Trump campaign is very consistent with a President (OBAMA) that would give $150 Billion to Iran (in exchange for a promise) AND let illegals pour across our borders AND sell 20% of our critical uranium supply to the Russians.

    I hope the Trump officials and their Congressional allies will uncover the convincing proof that Obama ordered this... and that Obama and Hillary pay "some price" for their crimes against America.

    Governor, thank you for all you do! We appreciate it.

  • Mark DiPasquale

    05/25/2018 12:59 PM

    Hi Mike,

    Like others, I get frustrated when reading commentaries on all of the wrong-doing by Brennan, Clapper - probably up through Obama. The frustration is not with the commentaries, but with the lack of DOJ action, specifically Jeff Sessions, to do his job! Conflicts of interest and inaction on the part of key people are hurting our country.

    So, I have a recommendation. Commentaries like this should always include a "who should be doing what" chart so we can measure (green/yellow/red & trends) how we're doing with Constitutionally provided remedies in response to CoI and law-breaking. We also need to know "how we can help". Reporting like this need this additional "informative" and "actionable" content because...remedies are not happening or not happening fast enough. I do actionable reporting for a living; glad to help; that is, if you like my recommendation. But for sure, please know that I am completely frustrated with this and am a proponent of lawful action. And this is coming from a brother in Christ. I know our home isn't here, but while we are here, I believe God wants us to "do" right.

    Mark

    Hi Mike, the deep state is so entrenched everywhere and across both party lines.
    It’s all about the coming one world government that Jesus warned us about, it is in it’s final days of coming together globally.
    They were sooo close they could taste it.
    That’s why they’re going so insanely berserk over Trump, he is not a globalist.
    Thanks to our dear Lord who has answered our prayers.
    Trump is staying on the right side of Pro-Israel and doing what is right for America.
    It’s really unfortunate that so many Americans don’t understand that this will keep them out of taking the mark of the beast!
    They should be delighted, but instead, they are blind.
