Today's Commentary --- Nellie Ohr finally testifies Friday; also, why we love Judge Royce C. Lamberth -- Leftist loopiness -- "Halloween" returns -- Senator McCaskill caught on undercover video -- Former FBI agent sentenced -- The Baltic Experience 2019 -- Recipe fake too -- Evening Edition - Daily Verse
At this writing, Nellie Ohr is scheduled to testify under oath before congressional committees on Friday (probably the day you’re reading this). I’m not sure if her deposition is to be held behind closed doors but am almost certain that it is.
Wish it weren’t, though, because this could be some of the most interesting testimony of all concerning the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s hypothetical “collusion” with the Trump campaign. They’ve been trying to get her under oath for many months as she reportedly dodged subpoenas. (Word is, though, that this appearance is voluntary.) As an expert on Russia working for “oppo research” company Fusion GPS, she might have been invaluable in helping create the anti-Trump Steele “dossier,” which we now know was used like actual, verified intelligence (it wasn’t) to get a warrant to spy on Trump campaign associate Carter Page.
Leftist loopiness in Arizona
By Mike Huckabee
I’m starting to suspect that Arizona Senate candidate Krysten Sinema decided to run solely because she really believes Arizonans are “crazy” and figures crazy people need representation, too. It seems that every day, a new piece of leftist loopiness emerges from the “moderate” Democrat’s past.
Here’s the latest: an email she wrote in 2002 promoting an anti-George W. Bush rally in which she accused Bush of a litany of bizarre crimes, including “putting arsenic in our water” and “crowning himself King of the World for life.” Apparently, she had George W. Bush confused with Leonardo DiCaprio in “Titanic.”
Let’s hope Arizona voters don’t make a “Titanic” mistake on November 6th.

The perfectly-timed new sequel to the classic horror film “Halloween” is on track to set box offices. But audiences might be surprised at what they see. According to this review by Kyle Smith, it’s not a standard “woman in danger from slasher” movie. It’s more of a conservative “that slasher wouldn’t have a chance if the woman had a gun” movie.
In fact, it’s reportedly very clear in its messages that some people, like the remorseless killer Michael Myers, are just evil; that the justice system and media give more sympathy to criminals than victims; and that women who want to protect themselves should learn how to pack heat. So much so that liberal star Jamie Lee Curtis felt the need to justify her participation by declaring, “I fully support the Second Amendment.” That could kill her Hollywood career faster than Michael Myers.
Smith’s review is at the link. Don’t read it if you don’t want any of the movie's shocks revealed. But I think I’ve already revealed the biggest shock of all by telling you that Hollywood has made a movie with a conservative attitude about guns and self-defense. And you thought it was a law that in horror movies, would-be victims always had to act like helpless idiots!
This has gone beyond simply differing with Republicans on one issue or another, or wincing at President Trump’s latest tweet. From the top down, the Democrats have thrown in their lot with the forces of rage, bullying, intimidation, mob rule and the shredding of Constitutional rights, due process and the basic niceties of society that allow people of differing views to live together without devolving into warring tribes. Here’s another example of how not even physical assaults on Republicans have stopped some Democrats from irresponsibly calling for more violence.
If you care about preserving civilized behavior and the fundamental American principle of freedom of thought, you cannot reward this sick behavior with your vote, and you cannot trust these deranged people with power. If you have to crawl over broken glass to vote to keep the Democrats far away from holding any power over you and your family, then I’d suggest you buy some thick kneepads and a box of Band-Aids and start crawling.
McCaskill caught on undercover video
By Mike Huckabee
I told you that Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill and her staffers had been caught on undercover video by James O’Keefe, admitting she was lying to Missouri voters about not wanting to ban guns or impeach Trump because she had to get reelected. I’ll bet you thought I was joking when I predicted Democrats would respond by claiming O’Keefe was a Russian bot. The Russians always seem to get blamed whenever Democrats inadvertently reveal what they really believe to voters.
Well, it’s impossible these days to make a joke that’s crazier than reality. McCaskill has responded to the revelations by demanding a special prosecutor investigate…the people who revealed the truth. She’s accusing O’Keefe of “fraud” for implanting an undercover reporter in her campaign (aka “journalism”) to reveal the fraud she’s perpetuating on Missouri voters. She’s also blaming her Republican opponent, state Attorney General Josh Hawley, who has no known connection to O’Keefe’s organization Project Veritas. She said, “He’s supposed to be going after fraud, not applauding it.”
If I were her, I’d be careful about demanding that the Attorney General go after anyone who’s committing fraud in Missouri. I believe “false advertising” would fall under that category, like pasting a fake “Moderate” label on a bottle of Carter’s Little Liberal Pills.
Former FBI agent sentenced
By Mike Huckabee
A former FBI agent in Minnesota was just sentenced to four years in prison for leaking secret US defense documents to the media. Wait, you mean you can actually go to prison for not keeping secret government documents secret? There must be some mistake, as I was assured no reasonable prosecutor would ever bring such a case!
Oh, wait: turns out his name is Terry James Albury, not Hillary Clinton. Now it makes sense. Carry on.
The Baltic Experience 2019
I am thrilled to announce an unforgettable trip to the Baltics for the summer of 2019! After many years of the Israel Experiences and our most recent trip the Mediterranean Experience cruise, we are bringing you another phenomenal cruise, the Baltic Experience! This all-inclusive cruise will feature some of the most beautiful places in the Baltic Sea and we will get to travel to and absorb these destinations aboard a luxury cruise ship from the Azamara Cruise line. If you have traveled with us before, you already know that all-inclusive means exactly that and there are no surprises along the way. The Baltic Experience will be no different. And when the weather is often unbearably hot throughout most of the US in August, we will be enjoying the cool and delightful weather that makes travel in the Baltic region perfect. Once again we have the entire ship and will fill our time on board with spectacular entertainment and special guests. In addition to the cruise we have multiple pre and post cruise offerings you can choose from to extend your trip. Our last cruise sold out in record time so we encourage you to get your cabin secured soon. We look forward to traveling with you soon and as always we will work tirelessly and do everything in our control to bring you The Greatest Trip.
See you on the boat,
Recipe fake too
By Mike Huckabee
Liberals who’ve been yammering at us recently about “cultural appropriation” (which is actually just sharing knowledge and traditions across different cultures, which used to be known as “advancing civilization”) seem awfully quiet about the most glaring example of real cultural appropriation in the news lately. That’s Sen. Elizabeth Warren's claim to be Cherokee and her appropriating of benefits reserved for “women of color” when a DNA test showed she’s as little as 1/1024th Native American. That’s like putting half a drop of medicine in a big glass of water and calling it a cold remedy. She’s a homeopathic Native American.
Anyway, now it turns out that not even her “Native American” family recipe is Native American. In 1984, a cousin of Warren’s published a Native American cookbook called “Pow Wow Chow” (and nobody’s complained about that name?) Warren contributed her family recipe for Cold Omelets with Crab Meat, which sounds about as Native American as she is. And with good reason, as it turns out. The recipe is virtually identical to one published years earlier by French chef Pierre Franey, which was said to have been the favorite dish of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.
Do you know what this means? The Duke and Duchess of Windsor were Native American! Well, not really. But I bet they were more Native American than Elizabeth Warren.
