“Agent Peter Strzok was just fired from the FBI – finally. The list of bad players in the FBI & DOJ gets longer and longer. Based on the fact that Strzok was in charge of the Witch Hunt, will it be dropped? It is a total Hoax, No Collusion, No Obstruction – I just fight back!”

That’s President Trump, breaking the news of deputy FBI Director Peter Strzok’s firing on Twitter (where else?) on Monday. Strzok had been at the FBI for 22 years. Incredibly, this partisan anti-Trump hack managed to get himself put in charge of both Hillary Clinton’s sham email “investigation” and the Russia/Trump “collusion” probe. If he and his paramour Lisa Page hadn’t immortalized their extreme bias through many candid text messages, we probably would never have known about the feelings motivating their actions at the FBI.

Omarosa makes clear she needed to be fired

By Mike Huckabee

I had sincerely hoped never to have to spellcheck the name “Omarosa” again, but former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman was all over the news again Sunday because of her claim to have used her cell phone to secretly record her firing by Chief of Staff John Kelly in the White House Situation Room.  Apparently, she is seeking sympathy for alleged intimidation or unfairness against her.  Instead, the tape makes two points that I don’t think she intended to make:

1.  Kelly makes it clear that she is being fired for cause, for integrity violations so serious that in the military culture he came from, they would be court-martial offenses (there had been a number of allegations about her from staffers, ranging from using official vehicles as her personal Ubers to – surprise! – secretly recording conversations.)  Kelly was trying to cut her a break by letting her leave under friendly terms with her reputation (such as it is) intact.

2.  The Situation Room is supposed to be one of the most secure rooms in the world.  All staffers are required to leave cell phones and other devices outside to prevent any attempts at hacking and eavesdropping by foreign spies.  In making that unauthorized secret recording, she not only verified that she richly deserved to be fired, but (if the laws about protecting national security are still enforced at all, post-Hillary Clinton) she might even have put herself into legal jeopardy.  If her name keeps appearing in the media beyond her book publicity tour, it might be in a completely different context.

Correction

By Mike Huckabee

Excellent blog post by longtime newspaperman Don Surber on the “news”-papers’ claim that President Trump is harming the First Amendment, and how they don’t understand or care about any part of the First Amendment that doesn’t directly affect them.

Gov. Cuomo unknowingly confesses to federal crime

By Mike Huckabee

The next time liberals try to defend the Mueller investigation by pointing to how many indictments it’s gotten against Trump associates, remember this: we have so many obscure laws that even the very liberal Governor of New York just gave a speech in which he unknowingly confessed to committing a federal crime most people never even heard of. If he were a Republican who could be pressured into testifying against Trump, he’d probably be in solitary for it by now.

Another reason why we need the Fair Tax

Those who accuse President Trump of treason for suggesting that a supposedly impartial government agency had been politically weaponized against Republicans under Obama conveniently forget the IRS Tea Party targeting scandal.  The IRS harassed, investigated and delayed conservative Tea Party groups that applied for nonprofit status, insuring that they were unable to perform their educational and voter turnout functions and depriving them of their Constitutional right to participate in the 2012 election.  Liberals have tried for years to dismiss that as a nonpartisan snafu, but it was obvious that the IRS specifically targeted groups with “Tea Party” and similar conservative phrases in their names.  And now, there is official proof of wrongdoing – but still, no admission of it:

Last week, in a historic first, a judge approved a settlement of a class action lawsuit in which the IRS agreed to pay $3.5 million in damages to Tea Party groups.  But here come the infuriating parts: under the settlement, the IRS admits no wrongdoing.  Also, the depositions of Lois Lerner will remain sealed, even though the plaintiffs have no objection to releasing them.  (Ms Lerner was the IRS official overseeing this scandal who was found in contempt of Congress yet never prosecuted, and was allowed to retire with a $129,000 bonus and an annual pension of up to $102,000 a year.)  So in addition to costing taxpayers all that pension money, Lerner and her partisan IRS cronies just cost taxpayers another $3.5 million, all without ever admitting wrongdoing.  Meanwhile, top IRS officials continue on their merry way, thumbing their noses at their Congressional overseers. 

Pardon me while I once again repeat the only two words that will ever end this kind of arrogance, lawlessness and injustice:  “Fair Tax!”

    I read your newsletter each day and I never saw anything about signing or sending Birthday wishes to Sarah. I feel confused as I don't even have any idea when her Birthday is. She does such a great job and I feel so bad for how she is treated. Whenever it is I hope her and her family can eat peacefully in a restaurant to celebrate

    Mike... I have a few more words regarding Fair Tax. How about "Fair and equal treatment under the law"? Can they appeal the multiple "concessions" the IRS and Lerner were given? Especially since they are willing to release the transcripts.
