Just a couple of days ago, I linked to a story about California Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s former chief intelligence staffer Daniel Jones’ hiring of political dirt-digging operation Fusion GPS and highly imaginative fiction writer Christopher Steele. His purpose: to continue providing “information” about Trump/Russia collusion to the press and “policymakers on Capitol Hill” –- AFTER President Trump’s election. But this story smells so bad, it’s time to put on the nose clips and do a more in-depth examination of how rotten it is.

According to a declassified House Intelligence Committee report, “seven to ten” wealthy donors from California and New York were funding this effort, with the purpose of furthering the made-up narrative that the Trump campaign had been working with Russia. The report confirms a story from February by Sean Davis at The Federalist that revealed Jones was directing a scheme to continue trying to discredit Trump after the election. We can glean a lot from this story, including the reassuring fact that there are still a few actual journalists around.

This looks baaaaaaad. But guess what? It’s much worse.

Netanyahu's speech

By Mike Huckabee

If you thought Obama's former deputy national security adviser and Iranian nuke deal salesman Ben Rhodes would have to eat his words about Trump antagonizing North Korea, he'll be chowing down on a verbal buffet after watching Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's stunning live presentation. Netanyahu just shattered any pretense that Iran is willing to give up on becoming a hostile nuclear power by exposing a massive trove of Iranian documents, photos and videos obtained by Israeli Intelligence, detailing their efforts to develop nuclear warheads to mount on missiles, right down to a photo of the safes inside the secret hidden compound where it was all stored. Iran hasn't even built a nuke yet (we hope), but their plans for it just blew up in the mullahs' faces.

My reaction to the WHCD

By Mike Huckabee

As you might expect, a lot of people are asking for my reaction to the foul-mouthed, unfunny and vitriolic “comedy” performance at Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. I already said a little about it on Twitter, and you can read about that here:

I would like to add that I am extremely proud of my daughter Sarah for giving the people in that room a desperately-needed illustration of what true class and dignity look like by sitting stoically through a vicious personal attack. I also commend those from both conservative and liberal media outlets who condemned that embarrassing, tasteless assault masquerading as humor (it’s no surprise that the speaker came out of “Comedy” Central’s “Daily Show,” which has lost its senses of humor and fairness ever since Jon Stewart left and Trump was elected, and has infected all of late night TV with the idea that partisan hate speech = “comedy.”)

One of the more ridiculous epithets being hurled on social media is the left calling Republicans who are upset about this “snowflakes” who can’t take a joke. First of all, I didn’t hear much that I’d consider “jokes.” Secondly, snowflakes get that name because they’re so delicate, they melt when you barely touch them (like college students who need to flee to safe spaces when they hear an idea that challenges them.) Sarah learned early on that if she got into politics, she’d have to develop a thick skin and a spine of steel to deal with the unfair attacks, and she exhibited admirable strength and restraint.

O. Henry bill

By Mike Huckabee

A bill has been introduced in Congress that would finally fund the building of a wall on the US-Mexican border. And where would be the funding come from? That’s the part that will result in squeals, either of glee or outrage, depending on your viewpoint. The wall would be built with federal funds cut off from sanctuary cities.

That’s such a great plot twist, they should call this the “O. Henry Bill.”

Prayers for China school victims

By Mike Huckabee

Our prayers today for the victims and their families in a horrific attack Friday on a middle school that left nine students dead and 10 more injured. The killer was apprehended by police and is described as a 28-year-old former student who apparently never got past being bullied in that school over 12 years ago. If you haven’t heard much about this in the news, that could be because it happened in the Shaanxi Province of China. And it didn’t help promote the favored US political agenda because China already has strict anti-gun laws so the killer used a knife instead.

If this story gets too much media attention, it might lead people to start questioning whether the real problem isn’t the specific tool a killer uses, but his mental condition which can be exacerbated by bullying in school. But why talk about tough issues like mental health, bullying, evil in the soul or lack of moral grounding that are really at the root of the problem when it’s easier and advances the political agenda more to just keep banning every single object that could be used to hurt somebody? I wonder, do they realize that even if we got to the point where the only object it was legal to own was a soft, comfy pillow, someone with mental problems or evil intent would use it to smother people?
