Happy Birthday President Trump
By Mike Huckabee
Monday was former President Donald Trump's 75th birthday. We all hope he had a happy birthday. This means that in 2024, he'll be 78, the same age Joe Biden is now. I can't help wondering if Biden's entire presidency is secretly an attempt to convince voters never to elect another 78-year-old President.
Hard questions remain about January 6 and the FBI
By Mike Huckabee
In the wake of the January 6, 2021, security breach at the Capitol Building during then-President Trump’s rally on Capitol Hill, I made it clear that any Trump supporter who participated was doing an extremely ill-advised thing that would bring on horrendous repercussions for conservatives. Sure enough, in the months that followed, we saw those repercussions, and they could continue for years.
“Domestic terrorism” by “white supremacists,” not China or Russia or the pandemic or even global warming (!), suddenly became the biggest threat to the Republic, at least to hear Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) tell it. Hundreds of Trump supporters were rounded up and held without bail, many to this day, while violent Antifa and BLM rioters around the country have been routinely let out of jail with no bail at all, free to go back and burn more buildings.
As if on cue after January 6, the Capitol Hill area was mobilized –- quickly surrounded with tall fencing and razor wire, as well as with hundreds of troops. Washington became an armed camp, with Speaker Pelosi ready to wage war. We got a taste of how quickly this can happen. Even the military was suddenly ready to identify and purge “extremist” Trump supporters from its ranks.
At the same time, the Huckabee Team always had a nagging suspicion that the breach of the Capitol fit the leftist narrative just a little too well, was just a little too convenient for their purposes, a little “too perfect.” If the breach hadn’t happened, we said soon afterwards, the left would have had to create it. They called January 6 the “deadly insurrection,” even though it wasn’t a real insurrection --- these people weren’t even carrying guns --- and the only person killed at the scene was an unarmed female Trump supporter shot by a still-unidentified Capitol Hill officer.
So, was the Capitol Hill breach really just a rally that got way out of hand? Or was it “helped along” by people who weren’t Trump supporters at all? WE DON’T KNOW, and we are not making accusations, only asking questions. Some news outlets are looking into the circumstantial evidence.
When REVOLVER NEWS did a study of of the unindicted co-conspirators listed in various charging documents relative to January 6, they noticed a surprising pattern: in many cases, these were much more aggressive participants than the people who actually had been indicted. It seems the very people who were most active in creating and escalating the breach were the ones who were protected from indictment afterwards, creating speculation that they were involved either as undercover operatives or confidential informants that day.
REVOLVER NEWS divides the participants in the Capitol siege into two categories, the first being “tourists,” mostly harmless people who just walked right past barricades and through open doors. At most, they’re guilty of trespassing and/or minor property offenses. These are the “MAGA moms” and other totally non-violent protesters who just wanted to show support for an honest election process. It’s absurd to think of them as undercover terrorists.
That leaves the second category for organized groups such as the Oath Keepers, the Proud Boys, and the Three Percenters. If undercover operatives or informants were involved in getting and keeping the “insurgency” going, it’s these groups they would have infiltrated. And these are the groups that our government claims to be investigating and prosecuting aggressively.
What we need to know is whether or not federal informants and/or undercover operatives were embedded in these groups and what their role might have been. If they helped instigate this, it would represent a new low even for the FBI, which after "Crossfire Hurricane" is saying something. It would be what REVOLVER NEWS suggests might be “a monumental entrapment scheme used as a pretext to imprison otherwise harmless protesters at the Capitol --- and in a much larger sense used to frame the entire MAGA movement as domestic terrorists.”
I would add that this event was also used as a pretext to impeach a President.
So, REVOLVER NEWS wants to know: how many of the key unindicted co-conspirators in DOJ prosecutions remain unindicted because they happen to be undercover agents or confidential informants?
To try to figure this out, they take us back to that plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and storm the state capitol, three months before the big Washington, D.C., Capitol siege. The FBI arrested 14 people for the Michigan plot, and of those 14, at least 5 were undercover agents and federal informants. At the very least, 26 percent of the Michigan plotters were FBI infiltrators, and they apparently played the most important leadership roles, such as “head of transportation,” “head of security,” and “explosives expert.” And when the main van drove up to scope out Gov. Whitmer’s vacation home, three of the five people in it were federal agents and informants. I am not kidding.
It was the Detroit Field Office of the FBI that successfully infiltrated the Michigan operation, and the director of that office, Steven M. D’Antuono, was promoted several days later by (yes) Director Christopher Wray, to the D.C. office, where he is now the lead agent investigating all cases stemming from January 6. Again, not kidding.
The REVOLVER NEWS piece is highly detailed about the Michigan plot and its use of government agents, including the clever methods of concealing some identities in official reports.
It goes on to show the parallels between the Michigan plot and the siege on Capitol Hill, including the oddity of certain alleged co-conspirators avoiding indictment while others are prosecuted aggressively.
Director Wray surely could explain that, and the piece ends with a question he needs to be asked directly: “How many of the unindicted co-conspirators in January 6 cases are now, or have been, undercover agents or confidential informants?
Please take some time when you can and read the whole thing. (Oh, and it says there’s more to come!) If the FBI really did infiltrate these groups and serve as a driving force behind the siege of January 6, this could be one of the most significant stories we will ever see. That’s because if they did something this corrupt, it essentially means the FBI and likely the entire Justice Department will have to be scrapped and started over, from scratch. And that’s how you drain a swamp.
By the way, in related news, Ashli Babbitt’s husband is still asking questions about his wife’s killing. The Metropolitan Police Department has refused a Freedom Of Information Act request to hand over records of their investigation. About 10,000 hours of security footage is being withheld, too.
Finally, Tucker Carlson’s opening segment on Tuesday night was about the REVOLVER NEWS story. The DAILY BEAST called it “bizarre,” which should tell you it’s a must-watch. We tracked it down at THE RIGHT SCOOP, because FOX NEWS hadn’t posted it yet and might be hesitating. We thought you should see it.
Jon Stewart Stuns Late Show Host With Brutal, Hilarious Rant
By Mike Huckabee
Ever since Jon Stewart left “The Daily Show,” wannabes who came out of his orbit have infested late night “comedy” shows, turning them into one-sided, DNC talking points lectures. One reason I enjoyed sparring with Jon was that, like Bill Maher, while his politics are very different from mine, he managed to remain funny, fair and reasonably open-minded. When he thought his own side of the political aisle was being ridiculous, he would skewer them, too.
His pale imitators got a shock lesson in how far below Stewart’s standards they rank when Jon made a guest appearance on Stephen Colbert’s otherwise unwatchable CBS show and stunned the host with a brutal but hilarious rant about the implausibility of the “official” bat soup origin story of COVID-19. Colbert seemed shell-shocked, although I couldn’t tell whether that was from interacting with someone who didn’t parrot the Democrat Party line or just from having something on his show that was actually funny.
Almost as much fun as watching Stewart mocking the official Wuhan origin story was reading all the outraged Twitter tweets from leftists whose heads were exploding over hearing something on Colbert’s show that didn’t reinforce their own unfounded sense of always being right.
They completely missed the point of what Stewart was saying and why it was shocking that he was actually allowed to say it. They live in a world where something can be called a crazy “fringe” belief even though a majority of Americans suspect it’s true. Fortunately, Stephen Miller was happy to explain to them the important point that they were missing.
He also notes that if they’re melting down over hearing someone question the CCP’s story on the virus origins, imagine how they’ll freak out if anyone they pay attention to ever tells them that Hunter Biden’s laptop is real, Dr. Fauci hasn't been honest, or any number of other things they’ve taken as unassailable truth instead of fake news.
Luckily, my readers won’t have that problem, since pointing out fake news and laughing at it is one of our favorite pastimes around here.
By Mike Huckabee
There’s been so much debate about whether facemasks prevent COVID-19, with their proponents claiming that even if they don’t help much, what’s the harm?
But what if they are doing harm? Not just the damage to childhood development, the restricted oxygen, or their symbolism of Americans’ willingness to give up freedom out of panic. I mean, isn’t putting an unsterilized piece of cloth over your mouth and nose and breathing through it for hours unsanitary? Particularly if we force them onto children, who are not famous for following strict hygiene rules.
Some concerned parents in Florida decided to do what the CDC or the media should have done a year ago. They took facemasks their kids had been forced to wear in school for 5 to 8 hours and sent them to a lab to find out what was on them that their kids had been inhaling. Brace yourself:
As many as one-third to a half of the masks were contaminated with bacteria related to pneumonia, meningitis, sepsis, tuberculosis, Lyme disease, food poisoning, diphtheria, Legionnaires disease, Staphylococcus infections, encephalitis and more. The lab also identified less dangerous pathogens that could still cause fever, ulcers, acne, yeast infections, strep throat, periodontal disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (pardon my “racism” against Rocky Mountain natives), and more. One-third had antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria. Unworn masks and a T-shirt worn by a child were tested as controls and none contained these pathogens.
This likely happened because the kids touched the masks with their fingers, set them on surfaces, wore them into the bathrooms, etc. These are germs we all come close to, but up until now, we haven’t scooped them up on a cloth and put it over our faces.
This falls under the category of news that’s “shocking, but not surprising.” A long time ago, I passed along the CDC’s strict guidelines for wearing masks hygienically and said that I couldn’t imagine anyone actually following them to the letter. Certainly not children! But if you don’t, you are creating a bacteria-infected rag and holding it over your mouth and nose.
We need to stop dismissing these concerns with “Better safe than sorry” and start ensuring that our kids actually are safe before we’re all sorry.
Meeting With The Pope Is Cancelled
By Mike Huckabee
President Biden’s trip to Europe continues to go swimmingly. Tuesday, plans for him to attend a mass by Pope Francis were canceled after the Vatican considered the impact that Biden, a self-professed Catholic but also the most radically pro-abortion President ever, receiving Holy Communion from the Pope would have on a meeting being held today by the US Council of Catholic Bishops. They’re meeting to discuss forming a committee to establish rules on whether pro-abortion politicians may receive Holy Communion.
Nancy Pelosi is another radically pro-abortion politician who claims that that view doesn’t prevent her from being considered a good Catholic. She might want to explain that to the Pope, since she seems to think she understands Catholic doctrine better than he does.
New Israeli Government Rips The Iran Deal
By Mike Huckabee
Israel may have a new Prime Minister and a new governing coalition, but that nation's very existence depends on being able to perceive and deal with reality. So no, they are not going to abandon Trump’s peace deals with other nations or endorse Biden’s delusional ambition to resurrect the Iran nuclear deal.
