If the US House isn’t giving Americans a wake-up call on the dangers of entrusting today’s Democrats with any power over their lives, they should take a look at New Mexico, where I imagine voters are experiencing a serious case of buyer’s remorse. Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, who has seldom met a far-left hot button issue she doesn’t support, has been in office for all of four months. Already, she’s denied there’s a crisis at the border and withdrawn the state National Guard troops, leaving communities overwhelmed with a flood of illegal migrants, she’s under fire from Colorado for busing migrants there, and she’s demanding federal aid to deal with the migrant crisis she previously called a “charade.”
And now, the latest leftist transformation of New Mexico: she’s signed onto a state-level version of the “Green New Deal” which mandates the state get 100% of its energy from renewable sources. This is now the left hopes to get around Congress’ aversion to this insane bill: by forcing it onto the people blue state-by-blue state.
P.S.: Our #1 story for two weeks in a row.
#2 story: The "plague" of leftism is evident in our filthy cities
By Mike Huckabee
If you want to see the results of leftist policies, go to the cities that are run by the most elite, wealthy and “progressive” people, such as Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle, where homelessness, filth and disease are taking over. The scene is shocking and heartbreaking.
In an appearance on Monday’s HANNITY, I pointed out that this is the kind of thing that used to be seen only in Third World countries. For decades, we could be confident that we had eradicated serious diseases such as plague and typhus. But today, the rat infestation is so serious that police officers (five at this writing) in the central LA area are coming down with typhus, and some medical experts suspect that bubonic plague is present. BUBONIC PLAGUE. You know, the “Black Death” from medieval times that wiped out about a third of Europe’s population and lingered for centuries. In the 1600s, during the Great Plague of London, one in five residents died.
#3 story: Mueller/FBI played dirty with Manafort and Flynn; Flynn wants to withdraw guilty plea
By Mike Huckabee
As Paul Manafort anticipates transfer to RIKERS ISLAND to await charges by the state of New York for additional financial crimes, John Solomon reports that Robert Mueller’s special counsel report significantly distorted the background of a Ukrainian businessman with whom Manafort had business ties, saying that he was a Russian intel agent.
Sounds sinister, doesn’t it? But Konstantin Kilimnik was, in reality, a ‘sensitive’ intelligence source for the U.S. State Department, not Russia. He was one of their most reliable and valuable sources on what was going on inside the Ukrainian government. State Department officials had told the FBI that it didn’t seem Kilimnik held any allegiance to Moscow at all, and that he was, in fact, highly critical of Russia’s invasion of Crimea. Mueller had to be well aware of all this. He had had in his possession since 2018 hundreds of pages of government documents such as “302” interview reports, from both the FBI and State Department, that attested to this. By leaving it out and painting Kilimnik as a Russian agent, he managed to make former Trump campaign chairman Manafort look like a possible conspirator.
#4 story: Paul Manafort update: What can we do?
By Mike Huckabee
Since writing about the ruling to transfer Paul Manafort from a minimum-security federal prison for nonviolent offenders in Pennsylvania to the notorious Rikers Island state prison in New York, I’ve received many responses from horrified readers asking, “Isn’t there anything we can do?”
Rikers Island is consistently on the list of the ten worst prisons in the U.S., and for years, many have been calling for it to be shut down. For a 70-year-old, nonviolent, white-collar criminal who is no threat to anyone to be sent there is shocking. I wanted to know more about what this really will be like for Manafort and turned up an article about his transfer by someone who spent a year there himself.
The author is apparently an expert of sorts on prisons, having been incarcerated for a total of ten years, one of which was at Rikers. It’s every bit as dangerous and nightmarish as I imagined it would be. And, apparently, being in “PC” (protective custody) is even WORSE than being in the general population, as it’s extremely restrictive and the word “protective” is a joke to anyone who’s determined.
#5 story: More information on mass shooting in Virginia Beach
By Mike Huckabee
Here’s the latest on what we know about Friday’s mass shooting in a Virginia Beach government office building which left 12 people dead, all but one of them city employees. The shooter was killed by police.

Best-selling author James Robbins will reveal the radical left’s plan to erase America’s future by purging us of our past. On the lighter side, I’ll have some crazy news “In Case You Missed It,” plus hilarious comedy from “America’s Got Talent” finalist, Tom Cotter.

Manafort update: An absolute must read
Turns out, when I said that I –- for once –- actually agreed with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on something, I was in some extremely good company. Here is an ABSOLUTE MUST-MUST-READ article by Monica Showalter saying just what we’ve been saying here, only in stronger language and with some new information.
Did you know that Manafort is now in a wheelchair? That Rikers has no air conditioning (or even ice water) and that at least one prisoner has died there during a heat wave? That Alan Dershowitz quotes a judge saying that this move is about pressuring Manafort to cooperate in taking down Trump on unrelated real estate cases? That, ironically, this treatment of Manafort echoes what happened in Russia to a man named Sergei Magnitsky, whose death in prison led to sanctions being placed on Russia through the passage in 2012 of the Magnitsky Act?
If Manafort is transferred to Rikers, it will make him, in effect, a political prisoner. Putin must love this. Gosh, the Chinese, too.
