AT LAST, BREAKTHROUGH COMES IN FLYNN CASE

Wouldn’t you know, when the evidence finally came out showing Michael Flynn was set up by the FBI, it would be at a time when the news was “all coronavirus, all the time.” My, how conveeeenient this is for media “news” outlets who want to ignore it until it goes away.

But it won’t go away. And there will be more. What has come out so far is less than half of what we’re going to see later on in the week. I’m guessing we’ll have another Friday document dump, but it might come today.

We’ve been covering the latest news on Flynn for the past several days, so you can refer to those commentaries if you need a refresher on how the records came to be delivered to attorney Sidney Powell, who has been trying to get them for many months. This is exculpatory (“Brady”) material that is automatically supposed to be turned over to the defense. She finally got much of what she’s been asking for –- she’s anticipating 11 more pages that are “damning” –- in the form of texts, emails and handwritten notes. It’s one of the handwritten notes that has shown beyond doubt that Flynn was personally targeted, just to get rid of him.

The barely legible scrawl reads: “What’s our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute or get him fired?”

Let that sink in. “Get him to lie”? “...get him fired”? Since when does the FBI concern itself with getting someone fired?

SOCIALIST PARADISE

I am not a fan of schadenfreude, the idea of taking pleasure in the misfortune of others. So I will not make fun of the people in this next story, and I hope and pray that they are safe and are able to return home very soon. But I hope when they do return, it will be with some hard-won wisdom, and that those of like minds may draw a lesson without having to endure their suffering.

It all started when a group of 40 “hippies” as this story describes them (that is, idealistic leftists/greenies, like a leader of Extinction Rebellion climate change protests) defied coronavirus travel warnings to go to Panama for “The Tribal Gathering Festival.” It was described as a collectivist utopia, a “paradise on Earth” where everything was shared and urban Westerners “could learn from indigenous communities about how to rebalance society and live in symbiosis with the Earth.”

But reality, in the form of the coronavirus, intruded on this red-and-green paradise. It was supposed to end on March 15th, but Panama placed them in quarantine and banned travel. So they’ve been stuck camping on the beach for 80 days. All that “imagine no possessions” stuff quickly went by the wayside as they started fighting over food, enduring serious sewage issues and being threatened by the organizer not to damage his property. They came expecting an eco-socialist paradise, but now they’re complaining that they’re “stuck in Hell.” One said, “At first it was like a paradise, but when you are locked in, it’s not paradise anymore.”

Sorry to break this to them, but that could be said of any so-called socialist “paradise” in history. In fact, they could have learned the same lesson by just flying straight to Venezuela instead of Panama.

As I said, I hope they are able to come home safely and soon, but also sadder but wiser, knowing that all socialist promises of “paradise” end the same way: with people fighting over food and “living in symbiosis with the Earth” by using leaves for toilet paper.

CALIFORNIA'S NANNY GOVERNMENT

Even in California, people can only take so much Big Nanny Government. Over the weekend, an estimated 40,000 shut-ins fled their houses and went to Newport Beach. State officials are threatening to close the beach on weekends because, as Gov. Gavin Newsom put it, California “can only keep flattening the curve if we stay home and practice physical distancing.”

Two points about that: first, “flattening the curve” was something that was supposed to be done to insure the cases didn’t peak early before there were medical resources in place to handle it. It worked. But it was supposed to be a two-to-three-week process. You can’t keep a virus from spreading indefinitely by ordering everybody to hide behind locked doors indefinitely.

Second, take a look at the photo of that “crowded” beach. The people look to me as if they are keeping a safe distance from each other. In fact, getting some fresh air and UV rays in the warm sunshine might be a lot healthier for fighting the virus than staying inside and breathing recirculated air.

I realize it goes against every instinct of “progressive” California politicians to trust the people to have enough sense to act responsibly on their own. But if they don’t lighten up and start letting people get back to doing their jobs and living their lives, those Californians may soon be sunning themselves on a Texas beach, like so many other former Californians already are.

WAFFLE HOUSE UPDATE

Tuesday, President Trump met with major industry executives from companies such as Wynn Resorts, Hilton, Toyota North America and Waffle House to discuss getting the economy back up and running again. You can watch the live stream of it here.

I was glad to see that Waffle House was represented at the meeting. The one sure sign that we’ll survive any crisis is that Waffle House is open.

GOOD NEWS

Good news on the COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus front: there are promising results from a new drug to treat it called remdesivir. When asked about it Wednesday, President Trump deferred to Dr. Anthony Fauci, who called the early test results “quite good news.”

Trump must’ve known that if he’d said it was quite good news, the media would be trying to convince us that remdesivir is deadly poison.

Also, Oxford scientists are testing a potential coronavirus vaccine on humans. If it’s effective, it could be widely available by September, to head off the feared “second wave” of the disease that could hit in the fall.

Bible Verse of the Day (KJV)

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (KJV)

    I think more about the CCP virus, as Epoch Times accurately calls. Trump has some shady characters advising him. Dr. Fauci is reported to have directed the funding of the Wuhan lab research on bat viruses. Your people do good research on other things. Right now many people can not trust our government agencies to speak honestly. Too many still in the Deep Swamp. Uncle's some Republicans
    Thank You

    Mr Huckabee, I saw you recently on fox news talking about china ,a young girl knew nothing about tenement[excuse spelling ] square . I think you should address teachers in America not teaching history in our own country . unfortunately I don't know the school . A teacher invited a ww11 vet to speak to her students. why I have no idea because she introduced him as a world war eleven vet. NO ONE IS TEACHING AMERICAN HISTORY … Barbara Hubbard from New Hampshire

    Dear Governor Mike,

    You are correct to call the COVID-19 virus the China virus, but let's give credit to those who helped China spread the virus and cause a pandemic - the World Health Organization. Of course, some credit should go to Nanny Pelosi, who delayed and stalled her clown show almost to the end of January, giving China plenty of time to make sure everyone would share their misery.

    I've been calling the virus the WHO-Han virus, but perhaps we should call it the Pelosi-Schiff-Nadler virus.

    For those not familiar with why Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler are to blame for at least part of the pandemic, I explain below.

    Now that Nanny Pelosi has decided it is "not safe" to return to DC, and has gone into hiding, we have time to take a closer look at her role in spreading the WHO-Han flu, or as the main-stream media likes to call it COVID-19 virus.

    I'm not talking about her going on TV in the Bay area almost a month after trump had sounded the alarm, and telling everyone they should come out and take part in the Chinese new Years celebration.

    No, I'm talking about her role (and the bit parts played by two of her yapping Chihuahuas, Schiff and Nadler) in distracting all of Washington throughout the months of December and January, when the Chinese were actively making sure the pandemic would spread around the world.

    Sometime in December the Chinese government realized the WHO Han virus was being passed from human to human, not just animals to humans. Realizing this epidemic would create a financial burden that could take years to overcome, the Chinese government made a decision to spread the virus, so the entire world would suffer financially, and China would not be alone. They stopped all internal China travel to and from Wuhan, but several thousands of visitors to Wuhan were flown out, the Chinese government knowing many of them were infected and would spread the virus wherever they went.

    To prevent the kind of action President trump took the end of January, stopping all visitors from China coming to the US, they needed something to distract Washington. Voila, there it was! Princess Nancy along with her yappy pet Chihuahuas, was having a Midol moment, staging a clown show she called an impeachment. Now, since impeachment in the House of representatives requires only a simple majority (and simple is the perfect word for the dem caucus), all the neutered pink poodles in her doggy pack wagged their little tails, and voted like Nanny told them to vote. She got her vote in mid-December, but rather than delivering the 'articles of impeachment" to the Senate as the rules required, she stalled and stalled, waiting until the second week of January to give the adult house of congress their say. Then, Adam (the lying sack of) Schiff and Noodle-brainNadler droned on and on, saying the same thing over and over, with slightly different words, for over two weeks.

    And that was just what the Chinese needed, time for the virus to spread and ensure world-wide economic chaos. Of course, lives would be lost, but to the Chinese communists, losing life is something they do regularly. Why change now?

    The only question that remains is, Did Nanny Pelosi do this knowing what the Chinese were doing? Or did she just agree to help them without knowing why they wanted her help. After all, the Chinese communist Party had funded much of Bill Clinton's second election (illegally, of course), so maybe if Nanny helped them they would kick in again. Was she a knowing, willing participants in this attack on the entire world? Or was she just a useful idiot?

    We need to know the answer to this question. I recommend Bill Barr start with the Podesta brothers and John Kerry. That's where the trail of communications will be that will tell us just how complicit Nanny was. We know she was complicit, but did she intentionally try and destroy our economy, hoping to damage President Trump's chances of re-election? Or was she just greedy, hoping to squeeze a few (Million) election dollars from the government of China? America deserves to know!

    Dear President Trump,
    What is going on in America? Why have you fallen prey to the fear-mongers and alarmists - Mr. President, we voted for you because you are brave, courageous, and not status-quo. Yet, this COVID19 has rendered you the opposite.
    The Corona virus has been with us for years - it's called a cold.
    Please Mr. President, let there be an end to this NOW.
    People who are scared? Stay home.
    People who are sick? Stay home.
    America, washing your hands is not something new - do it regularly and well.
    People who don't want to go back to work? Stay home.
    But, Mr. President, there are those Americans who are smart, who do not walk in fear, who do wash their hands, and who DO WANT TO GO BACK TO WORK. Please let us.
    Do you know the story, SING A LITTLE LOUDER? Allow me...
    SING A LITTLE LOUDER
    After a speech, pro-life activist Penny Lea was approached by an old man. Weeping, he told her the following story:
    "I lived in Germany during the Nazi holocaust. I considered myself a Christian. I attended church since I was a small boy. We had heard the stories of what was happening to the Jews, but like most people today in this country, we tried to distance ourselves from the reality of what was really taking place. What could anyone do to stop it?
    A railroad track ran behind our small church, and each Sunday morning we would hear the whistle from a distance and then the clacking of the wheels moving over the track. We became disturbed when one Sunday we noticed cries coming from the train as it passed by. We grimly realized that the train was carrying Jews. They were like cattle in those cars!
    Week after week that train whistle would blow. We would dread to hear the sound of those old wheels because we knew that the Jews would begin to cry out to us as they passed our church. It was so terribly disturbing! We could do nothing to help these poor miserable people, yet their screams tormented us. We knew exactly at what time that whistle would blow, and we decided the only way to keep from being so disturbed by the cries was to start singing our hymns. By the time that train came rumbling past the church yard, we were singing at the top of our voices. If some of the screams reached our ears, we'd just sing a little louder until we could hear them no more. Years have passed and no one talks about it much anymore, but I still hear that train whistle in my sleep. I can still hear them crying out for help. God forgive all of us who called ourselves Christians, yet did nothing to intervene.
    "Their screams tormented us . . . If some of their screams reached our ears we'd just sing a little louder."
    Now, so many years later, I see it happening all over again in America. God forgive you as Americans for you have blocked out the screams of millions of your own children. The holocaust is here. The response is the same as it was in my country - SILENCE!"
    Have you ever wondered HOW people could have stood by and let the holocaust just happen? Do you wonder why the Christians in this story chose to just sing their praise to God a little louder to drown out the victim's cries?
    The old man's story is in the past. The past cannot be changed. It is easy to think we would act differently now. But the old man's last words are haunting "It's happening all over again in America with abortion. The Holocaust is here."
    As American Christians, we have become so comfortable in our lovely buildings and padded pews. We have beautiful fellowship halls for our many banquets. We have the latest sound equipment for our praise and worship. We have computers to keep our records. We gather together each week and shut ourselves inside our buildings. We raise our voices as loud as we can, all in the name of God.
    Is this what we as faith people should do as our country is pulverized? I think not.
    Mr. President, I beseech you to "let your people go" to live their lives again.
    Respectfully,
    Susan Chamberlain Shipe

    I sure hope that most of the ill-informed democratic governors get voted out of office and are replaced by sensible informed citizens. It's clear that many of the liberals are just power hungry and never let a crisis go to waste!!!
