THE LATEST NEWS

1. Pelosi's Jan. 6 commission is shredding the Constitution

We’re not hearing a lot about Nancy Pelosi’s January “9/11-style” committee to examine events of January 6, but rest assured, it's still going on, and they are playing hardball. After all, they have domestic terrorism to combat! In fact, the chairman, Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson, made a shocking statement about how he intended to deal with a subpoenaed Trump supporter who worked at the Justice Department, Jeffrey Clark –- someone who never entered the Capitol that day and has not been accused of any crime.

“Our charge is to get to the facts,” he said on MSNBBC. “Mr. Clark, through his attorney, has been deliberately avoiding us...Obviously, he is aware that something went on that’s illegal. And rather than be responsible and answer, he’s pleading the Fifth. But if he’s saying, ‘Okay, I’ll come, but I’ll plead the Fifth, then in some instances, that says you’re, part and parcel, guilty to what occurred.”

What??

Sure enough, the committee voted unanimously to recommend that Clark be charged with contempt of Congress.

Jeffrey Clark is asserting his constitutional right not to testify. That doesn’t mean he’s guilty of anything. It might mean, however, that he’s concerned his testimony might be twisted and used by these partisan crazies to make him LOOK guilty. He gets to make that call. Rep. Thompson’s remark, if made in a court of law, might be enough to trigger a mistrial. A similar remark by a prosecutor almost did that during the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse.

Tucker Carlson opened his Monday show with a segment on this, saying of Rep. Thompson’s comment, “What you just saw is far more imminently dangerous to our democracy than anything that happened on January 6.” And he is correct.

Carlson also noted that Democrats on the committee (plus Liz Cheney) have subpoenaed AT&T for the phone records of Caroline Wren, who used to work as a fundraiser for Republican Sen. Lindsay Graham and who helped organize donations for the January 6 rally. This includes all records, including text messages, from November 1, 2020, to January 31, 2021. They also want her bank records and even everything she’s written in her own handwriting, including personal diary entries. Talk about an overreach --- this is monstrous.

https://january6th.house.gov/sites/democrats.january6th.house.gov/files/210929%20Caroline%20Wren%20Letter.pdf

And apparently this is just one example. Others who have yet to be accused of any crime are being treated the same way. Republican attorney Cleta Mitchell is another; she’s been informed by AT&T that the committee wants several months of her phone records. This is because she was on a phone call with President Trump and the Georgia secretary of state about problems with the vote in Georgia. (Oh, goodness, don’t tell me there might have been problems with the vote in Georgia!)

AT&T is complying with the committee’s requests.

Another Trump supporter targeted with a subpoena is attorney John Eastman, who worked with Trump in the election aftermath and spoke at the January 6 rally. On Friday, Verizon notified him that unless he gets a court order to stop it, they’ll turn over his personal text messages to the committee. The Washington Examiner has a report.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/house/ex-trump-lawyer-john-eastman-plans-to-plead-the-fifth-to-the-jan-6-committee

Eastman also plans to invoke his Fifth Amendment rights, as his lawyer, Charles Burnham, has informed Rep. Thompson. His letter states, “Members of this very committee have spoken of making criminal referrals to the Department of Justice and described the Committee’s work in terms of determining ‘guilt or innocence.’ ...Dr. Eastman has a more than reasonable fear that any statements he makes pursuant to this subpoena will be used in an attempt to mount a criminal investigation against him.”

Burnham also objected to the “legal propriety” of the subpoena, saying that the “lack of a ranking minority member makes it impossible for the Committee to comply with clearly applicable House rules.”

So, why would there be no ranking member? Recall that Pelosi rejected some of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s picks for the committee –- which he was supposed to be allowed to make under the resolution that created it –- and herself selected anti-Trump “Republicans” Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger to serve. McCarthy had wanted the too-effective Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan and Indiana Rep. Jim Banks.

Thompson later named Cheney as co-chair of the committee for this show trial! Talk about a kangaroo court.

Eastman reportedly pressured Vice President Mike Pence not to certify the election results. Pence went ahead and did it, saying he lacked constitutional authority to refuse. It was also reported that Eastman spoke with legislators in swing states about sending alternate electors to the Electoral College.

Eastman appeared on Tucker’s Monday show, saying that not only has he not been charged with a crime, but there’s absolutely no evidence that he had “any connections or communications with anybody who is charged with a crime.” “This is the modern high-tech version of a general warrant [from English days of yore],” he said, the kind of thing that allowed fishing expeditions “to look for evidence of crime.” He said that in this case, “there’s no probable cause, there’s no linkage to any criminal activity that has occurred.” It’s the same for “hundreds of people on these subpoena lists that were sent to Verizon and AT&T, and probably every other phone company in the country. There’s no evidence at all, but they want to track Americans’ thinking, they want to know who your contacts are...about election integrity, and going back from before even the election occurred.”

The First, Fourth and Fifth Amendments are all being trashed here. Eastman accused Rep. Thompson of presuming people guilty instead of innocent as the Constitution requires. Even the Sixth Amendment, the right to counsel, is being violated, he said, when attorneys such as Cleta Mitchell have to give up phone records that surely include privileged communications. “They’re just shredding the entire Constitution,” he said, “and then claiming that it’s us that don’t support the Constitution. It really is rather extraordinary.”

Eastman says the committee has the weight of the “Justice” Department behind it now when it issues criminal contempt citations. “Normally those don’t go anywhere,” he said, and we’ve seen that is true when it comes to particular officials who’ve gotten away with lying. He also speculated that even the phone companies would prefer not to comply with what this committee is demanding they do, but that they know “they’re gonna be held in criminal contempt if they don’t.”

He said it will now take a court order to try and block “these unbelievably expansive and unconstitutional subpoenas of our private records and communications.”

“We have got to push back against this stuff,” he concluded, “or we’re gonna lose our country before our eyes.”

In related news, you’ll recall we’ve expressed strong suspicions that the FBI had agents mixed in with the crowd during Trump’s rally, spurring on the “insurrection.” Attorney Joseph McBride appeared briefly on Tucker’s Monday show, calling for the release of videos that he says will unmask these agents to reveal “the truth of that day.” He’s joined by a number of news outlets, including, believe it or not, The New York Times. The Washington Examiner has a report.

2. PEARL HARBOR DAY:

Today is Pearl Harbor Day, the 80th anniversary of the “date which will live in infamy.” On the morning of December 7, 1941, Japan launched a sneak attack on the US Naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, that brought the US into World War II. 2,403 Americans were killed and 1,178 others were wounded, making it the deadliest attack on America until September 11, 2001.

It is very important that we commemorate these days. I know that the horror and tragedy are not easy to think about, but only by remembering these tragic days will we prevent letting ourselves be lulled into complacency about evil in the world and forgetting to prepare for unexpected attacks. Even now, we have an entire generation for whom 9/11 happened before they were even born, and the media’s attempts to suppress the ugly truth of it have convinced many of these young people that America somehow “had it coming.”

Americans are now very divided, and remembering these attacks also reminds us of how we put petty differences aside and came together as Americans, because what America stands for is bigger than any one group’s personal political agenda. That’s inconvenient for those who profit by dividing us, but it’s good for the nation. As one Vietnam veteran told Fox News, “If we don't unite today, we will certainly fall."

Fox News has more on the history of Pearl Harbor and veterans’ thoughts about it:

https://www.foxnews.com/lifestyle/pearl-harbor-80th-anniversary-veterans-america-unite

And here’s a story about a small group of elderly survivors of the attack who gathered today at that site in Hawaii to remember the fallen heroes and the attack that launched America into World War II.

https://www.foxnews.com/us/pearl-harbor-survivors-gather-remember-lost-attack

All of us at the Huckabee Newsletter send our greatest respect and gratitude to them and to all veterans. I will end by saying what our grandparents said all through World War II:

“Remember Pearl Harbor!”


3. FROM OUR "FAR OVERDUE" FILE: 

At least 10 Antifa radicals are facing prosecution for allegedly committing “violent criminal acts” to disrupt a peaceful pro-Trump rally in San Diego.

https://www.foxnews.com/us/anti-fascists-charged-alleged-attacks-california-pro-trump-protesters

Prosecutors say the evidence shows this was not a mutual altercation, and that the Antifa groups used social media to plan “direct action” against the Trump supporters. That includes assaulting people with tear gas, sticks, a flag pole, a folding chair and other items. One even allegedly pepper sprayed a man and his dog. Because of the planning, this is the first time laws against criminal conspiracy have been used against Antifa, but let’s hope it’s not the last time. The Biden DOJ might pretend that Antifa doesn’t exist, but they seem pretty real when they’re attacking you with tear gas and sticks.

While I’m very glad to see this, and think we should have seen such stories many months ago (San Diego may be the only place we’ll ever see it on California), I take exception to one thing in this story: the repeated use of the phrase “anti-fascists” to describe Antifa. These are radical thugs who use violence and intimidation to try to silence anyone who disagrees with their political views. Calling them anti-fascists would be like calling that poor dog they assaulted a cat. They are fascists, pure and simple. And let’s hope that they will soon be accurately called “convicted felons.”

By the way, a commenter on this story asks a good question: do these people have jobs? The suspects are all “adults,” in age anyway, ranging to as old as 39. Yet they seem to devote much of their time to going around causing trouble and attacking people. Do they actually have jobs, or is someone paying them to do this?

Flashback: As a reminder of how long this kind of political violence has been going on, here’s a story from August 2020 about Sen. Rand Paul and his wife being attacked by a leftist mob while trying to leave the GOP Convention after President Trump’s nomination acceptance speech.

https://www.the-sun.com/news/1382462/mob-donald-trump-protesters-attack-republican-senator-rand-paul/

My wife Janet and I were there, and it was harrowing for us to try to leave the area, too, although thankfully, the security held the mob back by then. This is another reason why I have to roll my eyes at the Democrats’ melodramatic claims that January 6th was a shocking and unprecedented attack on our democratic system. They’d spent the previous year cheering on attacks on political free speech, public safety and the rule of law, but it somehow only became a real problem when it threatened them.

5. YOU DEFINITELY WANT TO MONITOR THIS:

If you have an Android phone, this is a new feature of the latest Android 12 update that you’ll definitely want to monitor.

https://nypost.com/2021/12/06/urgent-google-warning-for-millions-of-android-users-these-symbols-mean-someone-is-watching/

It’s an icon that appears on the top right of the screen to warn you if any of your apps has turned on your phone’s camera or microphone and is spying on you. You can also go to the Privacy Dashboard inside Settings to see which apps accessed your camera, microphone or locations and when.

There’s more info at the link on how to tell whether this is benign or something you need to block, and how to do it. Big Tech might believe that privacy is an obsolete concept, but the rest of us don’t have to go along with that.

8. I JUST WANTED TO SAY:

Thank you for reading today's newsletter. 


THE FIRST NOEL THE ANGELS DID SAY

Today's Christmas carol is recommended by many readers.

LISTEN: https://youtu.be/1mItWsC8RtM

 

1 The first Noel the angel did say

was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay;

in fields where they lay keeping their sheep,

on a cold winter's night that was so deep.

Refrain:

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,

born is the King of Israel.

2 They looked up and saw a star

shining in the east, beyond them far;

and to the earth it gave great light,

and so it continued both day and night. [Refrain]

3 And by the light of that same star

three Wise Men came from country far;

to seek for a king was their intent,

and to follow the star wherever it went. [Refrain]

4 This star drew nigh to the northwest,

o'er Bethlehem it took its rest;

and there it did both stop and stay,

right over the place where Jesus lay. [Refrain]

5 Then entered in those Wise Men three,

full reverently upon the knee,

and offered there, in his presence,

their gold and myrrh and frankincense. [Refrain]

    Eighty-one years ago, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Today, Joe Biden called Putin and had a conversation about the UKRAINE and what his administration would do if he attacked the UKRAINE. Go back to 2014, when Biden was Vice-President under OBAMA. What did he and Obama after the attack and taking parts of the UKRAINE by Putin. Send non-military supplies like blankets and MRE's (Military Ready Made Meals) and medical supplies and did out allies of the NATO DO. Nothing. So if I remember my history right , there was a Prime Minister of England called Neville Chamberlain in 1938 and he just sold out at Munich to a person called Hitler and we all know what happened on 01September 1939.

    If our Dept. of Justice does not follow the duty of the law violators are to be prosecuted under the laws of not obeying the oath they took. I still believe the no bail mandates are illegal for felonies and other criminal activity. Those mandates do not sound legal, organized crime get low income people to commit crime when caught they have nothing to loose at least that is documented so back on the street to commit more crime. Criminals are going to make citizens take a stand and protect their property and loved ones perhaps the attorney generals that make these decisions should have a mob visit to their homes so they can get a feel for the insane feeling one gets with a home invasion insurance can pay for most of the losses however the thought of pulling the trigger on the next invasion is a lifelong memory I can not kill a bird or a deer or anything unless it is it or me to maintain life it may be easier to take an invader's well being for a criminal in my view is a lower part of the chain. I hope it never happens. we have an excellent police force however criminals can locate almost any target. People have to prepare yes women have to protect themselves also some women have children so precious they must be protected criminals don't have a conscience this country has to start eliminating criminals by imprisonment until their brains can mature or just keep them away from society keep them with their own kind all will be better off without the criminal in civil society.

    "Complying with the January 6 investigation scam?" The only way I would comply much less appear at that circus of deception is if I was ARMED with a machinegun!

    They defy the constitution of the United States with disdain. That however simply provides more proof that America has NOT BEEN anything like a "Constitutional Republic" for many decades! President Trump is not the only one concerned that America has already reached the "Point of No Return." I'm in no way concerned for myself, as I'm an ancient campaigner in this life, but I'm already positive that sadly my grandchildren will never know the America I grew up in! We can only hope they NEVER have to learn how to speak Mandarin or how to purchase their needs with Yuan!!
