Some of the comments and questions I received on yesterday’s newsletter story about information gleaned from the Strzok-Page texts were incredibly insightful –- you know I always read them –- and I wish I could offer quick answers to them all. Many of them fall into a few overall themes: the obvious double standard in Washington and the media, with the lack of “justice for all”; the apparent worthlessness of Attorney General Jeff Sessions (among others); the hesitance of President Trump to use his constitutional authority to fire government officials and declassify documents that still haven’t been released or have been mostly blacked out; the frustration that Robert Mueller will never end his investigation; and fear for democracy itself.

There’s no easy end to this, but every day brings more evidence that it’s unraveling. The scandal within the FBI and DOJ seems now to be centered on the cast of characters we’ve come to know all too well: former FBI Director James Comey, acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, demoted FBI official Peter Strzok (who seems to be in the thick of it all and is still, unbelievably, employed at the Bureau), and former McCabe legal assistant Lisa Page. Then-CIA Director John Brennan (now a contributor at MSNBC, where he fits in well) seems to have been in on the get-Trump scheme from the very start; in fact, he launched it. And don’t forget former CIA Director James Clapper. It’s all coming out; the FBI/DOJ can delay delay delay, and officials can go before Congress and lie lie lie, but they’re not going to keep their misdeeds under wraps forever. That would have been possible only if Hillary had been elected.

The John McCain story

By Mike Huckabee

A story appeared a few days ago that I deliberately avoided talking about in hopes that the people trying to turn it into a big deal would start to feel ashamed of themselves and reel it in. Instead, it’s just gone on and on, and gotten louder and louder. I feel I have to talk about it, but I’m going to do so by saying as little about the details as possible.

The story involves a little-known Trump White House staffer who, according to a leak, made a callous remark during a private meeting about Sen. John McCain, who is suffering from last-stage brain cancer. I won’t quote it, but she allegedly implied that his opposition would not be a factor because he will not live much longer. I don’t know if she actually said that, or the tone of her comment (was it mocking or disrespectful or simply coldly pragmatic?) But it sparked the usual howls of outrage and demands from the left that she be fired for slandering an American hero.

Israel and Gaza violence

By Mike Huckabee

The shameful and ridiculous attempts to blame Israel and President Trump for the deadly results of Hamas-inspired Palestinian protests in Gaza over the US Embassy opening in Jerusalem are continuing. But they’re spreading from the anti-Trump news outlets to the UN and the Twitter feeds of leftist celebrities, at least one of whom was unhinged enough to compare our UN Ambassador Nikki Haley to Hitler because she…defended the Jews? Really?

Caleb Howe at PJ Media has a timeline of the escalating insanity, including some terrific quotes from Ambassador Haley, speaking truth to power at the UN and reminding some nations that are blasting Israel that history shows they’ve responded to incursions on their borders with much less restraint than Israel.

Also worth mentioning: they are blaming injuries of Palestinian children on Israel, but who takes their children to a dangerous, violent protest and uses them as human shields?



Keeping Senate in session

By Mike Huckabee

Props to the 16 Republican Senators who are calling on their colleagues to stay in session on Mondays, Fridays, weekends and the month of August, so they can get some long-delayed business done and confirm some of the many Trump appointments that Democrats have been obstructing (Remember when Republicans who opposed Obama’s policies on principle were unpatriotic obstructionists? Now Democrats who block everything Trump does just because he’s Trump are valiant “Resistance” fighters.)

The leader of the push to stay on the job is Georgia Sen. David Perdue, who said the goals were “to speed up the nominations process and keep the government funded by the end of the year. This is nothing more than trying to make our government work again.” Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst added, “This is the only (job) that you can neglect some of your most basic duties and then take a month-long vacation.” Frankly, given the current mood of the Republican base, I think this might be the best way for some incumbents to avoid being sent on a permanent vacation.

Tuesday primary results

By Mike Huckabee

Tuesday, there were primary elections in four states: Idaho, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Nebraska. I won’t bother going into all the details of the various local races, but you can find some of them at the link. You’ll probably wonder why I’m linking to an election recap from a far-left “progressive” site, but there is a reason. It’s because the biggest story of Tuesday night was the victories of far-left candidates in Democratic primaries, and I wanted you to see how that’s being celebrated as a great thing. This should motivate you to get out and vote in November to keep these people at least 1,000 miles away from any levers of power over your lives.
