Suppose you were a member of, say, the House Intelligence Committee, trying to exercise your due diligence and conduct oversight as mandated by the Constitution, and you’d been kept waiting an ungodly length of time for thousands documents from the DOJ and FBI. How would you feel when you finally got some –- after many months or even over a year –- and you still couldn’t get the full story or even, in some cases, make heads or tails of them because large portions had been blacked out, ostensibly for reasons of national security. The official term for this: “redacted.” We’ve taken for granted these redactions were necessary.

Sometimes entire pages are blacked out. For all practical purposes, a blacked-out page may as well be non-compliance, especially considering that lately, when communications were finally un-redacted, the parts formerly withheld turned out to have nothing to do with national security –- only with covering the FBI’s collective butt, particularly on its disgraceful treatment of former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

Who actually performs these redactions? Gosh, I don’t know, but it’s easy to imagine some Winston Smith character sitting in a locked-down, dreary, fluorescent-lit basement room within the Ministry Of Truth –- I mean, Department of Justice –- with a green eyeshade and a big black Magic Marker, which he uses so much that he risks being overcome by the fumes in his cubicle. Instead of dropping papers down the memory hole, he runs his eyes over them and blacks out whatever he anticipates might be damaging or even incriminating to the DOJ or to colleagues at the FBI and State. “Winston” has done this for years and assumed until November of 2016 that once Hillary was safely in office, he’d be able to continue unchallenged.

"Blue wave" more of a puddle

By Mike Huckabee

That “blue wave” is getting to puddle size. In the latest Reuters generic ballot poll, the Democratic advantage is down to 1.4%.

And CNN has it down to 3%...

Historically, the Democrats have to be at least 5 points ahead in polls to show an actual advantage when the real vote is taken. Also, with all the votes counted in the Ohio primary election, the vote totals in the statewide Governor’s races were 560,258 Democrats and 700,000 Republicans.

It's still very early, and Republicans should not get complacent, but the Democratic advantage in terms of anti-Trump hysteria motivating the leftist base is being off-set by Trump’s recent wins on jobs, the economy and foreign policy and by the Democrats’ inability to articulate a platform beyond “We hate Trump and we want to go back to doing a lot of crazy things to make your life miserable again.”

For instance, Nancy Pelosi seemingly confirmed that if the Democrats retake the House in November, she intends to be Speaker again, and they’ll raise taxes back up, despite the boost the new lower rates have given to economic growth, job creation and even government revenues.

You have to give her credit: just by saying such a thing, she found a way to frighten employers into possibly cutting back hiring and expansion plans. It would be no mean feat to hurt the economy with your dumb policies when you're not even able to impose them yet. Merely the threat of imposing them could cost Americans job opportunities. That’s because, unlike Congress under Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats, private sector businesses actually have to make budgets and plan for the future.

Treating babies like adults

By Mike Huckabee

You’ve got to hand it to the leftist PC crowd: just when you think they’ve reached absolute peak crazy, they manage to burrow a little deeper into the loony bin. I wonder who has to change this lady’s diaper?

Lest you think she’s an isolated nutcase, there’s now a whole trend for treating babies as if they were adults. Would you be surprised to hear that this started in Los Angeles, spread by Hollywood celebrities (because who has better-adjusted children than Hollywood celebrities?) and is now getting popular in New York City? I assume it also serves the “progressive” goal of turning kids into neurotic wards of the state right from the cradle. Having succeeded in infantilizing adults, it’s only natural that they’re now turning their attention to adulterating infants.


Positive news coverage

By Mike Huckabee

I know it must pain the media to have to report positive news about President Trump. At last check, their coverage of him was running 91% negative (so hey, it is improving!), with former comedian Jimmy Kimmel helpfully explaining the negative slant by comparing him to the Ebola virus. They’re also distracted with whining about Trump's criticism of them (note that they think the real story is his being angry about their blatant bias and unprofessionalism, not their exhibiting blatant bias and unprofessionalism.)

His Press Secretary (you know who) had to reassure them that the White House supports freedom of the press (which she proves every day by facing that den of foaming-mouthed attack dogs), they just don’t appreciate the bias and lack of fact-checking that results in the broadcasting of fake news. This after Trump sent out a tweet about fake news that ended with “Take away credentials?” It seemed to be a pretty obvious joke designed to push their buttons and boy, did it ever.

The Press Secretary’s fairly gentle criticism brought an angry response from Bloomberg reporter and White House Press Correspondents Association President Margaret Talev, who said, “Just because the president does not like news coverage does not make it fake.” No, being fake is what makes it fake. And lately, the members of her organization have been doing about as good a job of fact-checking as she did of booking a “comedian” for her recent WHPC dinner (way to go, proving you weren’t biased with that decision – also that you can dish it out to the Press Secretary when she’s not allowed to answer back, but you sure can’t take even a tiny, watered-down dose of your own medicine.)

So with the mainstream media consumed with wall-to-wall coverage of cash-hungry porn stars and imaginary Russian collusion and their own hurt widdle feewings, I guess it’s up to me to tell you about the minor news from the White House.

First of all, after greeting the three Americans he got freed from North Korea, Trump sent out this tweet this morning:

“The highly anticipated meeting between Kim Jong Un and myself will take place in Singapore on June 12th. We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!”

Yep, world peace sure sounds worse than the Ebola virus to me! Trump also just signed an executive order for federal agencies to boost job opportunities for veterans by prioritizing the hiring of veterans and their spouses.

Will this nightmare never end?!!

Congress and Justice Department fight about access and security

By Mike Huckabee

The Justice Department once again refused to share information with CIA and FBI overseers on the House Intelligence Committee about a source for alleged information on Russia that they did share with Robert Mueller. This could be leading to a legal and Constitutional showdown between the intelligence agencies and Congress.

In denying the demand for information on the secret source for Mueller’s never-ending, ever-expanding investigation and its resultant questionable FISA court warrants and deep-night raids on private citizens, the DOJ issued this explanation:

“Disclosure of responsive information to such requests can risk severe consequences, including potential loss of human lives, damage to relationships with valued international partners, compromise of ongoing criminal investigations, and interference with intelligence activities.”
