If fired FBI Director James Comey told you that you must forget policy differences for now and vote for Democrats this fall if you believe in this country’s values, what would you do?  Laugh in his face, right?  That makes me wonder just who was supposed to be on the receiving end of his ridiculous tweet.  Does he think he’s influencing Trump supporters?  If so, he has to be even more out of touch with reality than we thought.

OUR TOP STORY: Yes, Lisa Page had FBI counsel, but actually answered questions!

“History has its eyes on us,” he said.  Our history won’t be written for a long time, but I don’t think James Comey is going to come out looking very good.   At least he didn’t say we as Trump supporters are on “the wrong side of history,” because that expression is getting really tired.

I hardly have to point out why a Democratic victory is so important to Comey and other current and former government officials, but here it is, anyway:  If Democrats win, ALL ITS INVESTIGATIONS OF THE INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES WILL CEASE, AND IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS AGAINST TRUMP (NO EVIDENCE REQUIRED) WILL BEGIN.


If Democrats win Congress, we’ll be headed back to the way it would have been if “the insurance policy” had worked and Hillary Clinton had been elected in 2016.  (No doubt she and Obama will even be calling the shots.)  Everything that has to do with her corrupt State Department tenure and 2016 campaign will be buried, and Democratic power will be solidified and protected by the nation’s bureaucracies for the foreseeable future, at any cost.

Sorry, Mr. Comey, but I don’t share your “values.”  You let Hillary off the hook for obvious and very serious crimes.  You set the wolves on President Trump when there was no evidence of wrongdoing on his part.  You and your colleagues worked to further a false narrative for political purposes, and I think your attempts to do so are absolutely abhorrent, including your deluded and sanctimonious tweets.  With all your condemnation of Russia, your attempt to determine the power structure of this country through the actions of a non-elected bureaucracy smacks of old-time USSR values, not American.

If Democrats take control and stop the truth from coming out, it will be a tragedy for our country.

It’s hard even to imagine how loud Democrats’ screams of “treason!!!” would be if Trump were, say, caught on a hot mic telling Putin’s emissary that he’d have more flexibility after he was safely re-elected.  They’ve been trying hysterically to keep the false “Russia collusion” narrative going through the midterms, but it just doesn’t work any more.  They’re like the bad magician whose movements reveal every trick and whose strings cast noticeable shadows in the spotlight.  We’re wise to them, even if they’ve come to believe the fantasy themselves.


In 2016 and even before, our intelligence agencies knew Russians were OF COURSE trying to infiltrate our voting systems.  They did nothing to stop it.  They suspected that some of Trump’s campaign associates had perhaps had contact with Russian agents.  They did nothing to stop it.  If they were really concerned about Russia influencing the outcome of our election, they would have alerted the candidate himself.  They did not, preferring to set a trap and implicate him.


It’s not generally my style to tell someone to shut up, but if it were, this would be the time.  Rational people are sick of you, Mr. Comey.  You brought disgrace to the FBI.


As for former CIA Director John Brennan, he should be ashamed as well, but he won’t be.  If he hadn’t been so all-out vicious in his anti-Trump tweets, we might be able to believe he wasn’t a big part of the effort to derail Trump’s candidacy and, later, presidency.  But just as Brennan can’t resist expressing his true colors in hateful tweets and downright seditious statements on MSNBC, wildly accusing Trump of treason, he no doubt couldn’t resist using his power and connections in any way possible to stop Trump in 2016.


Commentary continues below advertisement

It’s hard to believe a man like Brennan was actually confirmed by the Senate to head the CIA when Obama appointed him in 2013.  For starters, they had to know he voted for the Communist Party in the 1976 election (America’s, not Russia’s) when we were deep in the Cold War.  (He said it was due to his “unhappiness with the system”; I assume he didn’t mean the Communist system.)  How is that ever justified for the head of our foreign intelligence service?  But --- oh, wait --- it was a Democratic majority led by Sen. Harry Reid.  (Rand Paul tried to filibuster, but on another issue.)  Now it makes sense.



P.S. - 

Daniel Greenfield at Frontpage magazine also has a few well-chosen (and sarcastic) comments on our nation's moral conscience and admitted leaker and liar James Comey urging Republicans to set aside everything they know about what the Democrats stand for and vote for them in the next election -- out of pure patriotism and not for any self-serving reasons, of course.

    So, I have a question. If I understand it right, our tax dollars have paid millions to the lawyers who have tried to get our President Trump inpeached. I call this highway do we get our money back? Actually the lawyers run these fiasco's to pad their pockets. I think it is time to change the system. Someone needs to be held accountable and pay back money to Finch and our government who have lost money to these 'ally-cats'.

    Comey and Brennan are liars. You can’t believe anything they say. They should have not been in charge of the CIA or FBI.

    Dear Mike,
    Comey, Brennan and many others are traitors and the people are not going to stand for much more. We have listened to them tell lies and try to undo the 2016 election and destroy the President with vicious lies and false statements using their power in their official capacities to undermine him and his administration. We are beyond sick of it. We are beyond sick of the liberal media. A Reckoning is coming.

    Worse than that if they impeach Trump. The Country will go down the rathole. All of those predictions by Rickards, Bonner, and others will come to pass quickly as the whole economy crashes like those have predicted. The Breaking of the "Bubble" that even Trump Predicted while Campaigning will be upon us. Trade will Cease with other countries. North Korea will be back with it's Nukes, with perhaps China, and Russia helping out. Time hasn't been enough to make the military fully strong yet. Perhaps the Railways will even go rusty as some doomsayers have predicted. Military Law will have to ensue to some order.

    I believe President Trump has a mandate from God. EVERYBODY said he would never be president!!!! So if it isn't time for the world to end and we get out and vote, our President Trump is going to continue bringing back, to the United States of America, something that has been missing for a very long time. The idea of a hrc presidency filled me with dread and I figured it probably must be close to the end. There has to be a break in all of this a light at the end of the tunnel that isn't a train. And I believe even if there isn't, President Trump will continue to do great things in this country with all of the American patriots continuing to back him up. The likes of Comey, Brennan, hrc have lost their right to preach to me. They might as well be, they are, the devil talking. The people they want to influence they can't, and the ones they can influence don't need to be. If we made it in 2016, 2020 out to be a slide into home.

    Russian interference in American elections? Even Putin is not dumb enough to believe he could alter the votes but he is smart enough to know that many Americans are vulnerable to sound Bytes and sowing the seeds of dissent has been accomplished beyond his wildest dreams. Are the Progressives dumb? NO! They are INDOCTRINATED by a 100 years of academia and the current crop of "Anti" anything Trump or Constitutional Republic is on public display for all to see if they use Both Ears. IMHO the media would benefit from a little advice from Paul Harvey " Self Importance has ruined more good journalist than bad liquor". My input is, Just Report and quit Spinning.

    Thank you for continuing to remind Americans who care deeply about our country to keep
    the faith, and not be swayed by the vicious words and deeds against President Trump. We
    voted for him and intend to keep voting for him and like-minded Republicans. President
    Trump is doing exactly what he promised to do, even with all the garbage he is having to
    deal with. Young journalists need to go back to school, study our history and the reason
    why U.S. Presidents are obligated to talk to Russia following the demise of the Soviet Union.
    The alternative is nuclear war that will wipe all of us out. Old journalists(?) need to shut up.
    A side note: Is Whoopi now the president of ABC? Who gave her the right to demand a guest
    to "blankety-blank leave the building"? Judge Pirro,a much more intelligent woman, handled
    it well, including Whoopi's foul-mouthed attack on the "View". Too bad Barbara Walters didn't
    shut the show down when she left. During her tenure it had class.

    Both Comey and Brennan, et al. are part of the anti-establishment establishment. They are entitled to their opinions as is everyone. But they are not entitled to call the president a traitor and call for his impeachment. These are very serious charges which should not be brought up lightly. They should also have their security clearances and access revoked the minute they leave government service. When you leave the government, you leave everything behind. That includes access to documents both classified and unclassified and to personnel still in government service.

    Hi Governor Huckabee! Thank you for this newsletter! It's very refreshing to read sane analysis of what's going on in our country right now. I am totally floored at the way that not only Democrats are escalating their attacks at our President (we love what he's doing for us and our Country and glad that he doesn't let the attacks stand without retribution!) but republicans who we thought were on our side and supporting President Trump. I guess it's getting hard for them to hide their true colors!

    Comey and Brennan are the true traitors and think the American people are stupid and do not take time to become informed when it comes to voting in elections. Their lack of character speaks loud and clear; anyone who says he is fed up with the system and votes for the Communist party and acts out the way he does in my book is a traitor. Anyone who likes playing with puzzles can put together at this time the Deep State leaders in Congress, FBI,DOJ and the key Leader and financial supporter, billionaire who says he is God. That will influence their voting. Why?? We are fed up with all this Corruption and want Character and Service to our country returned to normal. Thanks Mike for keeping us informed and your sense of humor is most appreciated,

    Hello Mr. Huckabee,
    Thank you for all you do to support and defend constitutional conservatism. I like others cannot tolerate another minute of nonsense news. I only read your articles and listen to Mark Levin. So excited to watch you this Sunday on "Life, Liberty and Levin.
    I appreciate you and your brilliant diplomat daughter.
    God bless you and yours,

    Hi Governor Huckabee, Thank You for your Newsletter - Love it and I totally agree! Both Comey and Brennan are traitors and have definitely given the CIA and FBI a black eye plus. Both of them should be in jail.
    Just a quick note, we think your Daughter is Fantastic! We do not understand how she puts up with the press every day, but she does an incredible job! Please let her know that she and her family are in our prayers and thoughts - the lack of civility in Washington, D.C. is just reprehensible. Thanks again & keep up the good Work!

    Hey Gov. Huckabee. Hope you and your family are well. I just want to say after this Putin Summit, I'm through. I thought the media and the left couldn't get any worse. Boy was I wrong. And President Trump keeps saying something different everyday. He knows it's not the Russians. Rod Rosenstein did that press conference on purpose. I'm so sick of all of it, I won't turn on the news anymore. Fox News covers just as much bad stuff as they do good stuff now. And I trusted all of them. I'm an all American girl/woman. But I can't stand all the lies and fighting anymore. You are the only one I trust.

    The reason the Dems are trying to keep the false "Russia collusion" narrative going through the midterms is they believe in the false assumption that if you repeat the lie long enough and often enough it will become the truth. I guess they never heard of the story of The Boy Who Cried Wolf!

  • Judy K. Hudson

    07/19/2018 02:05 PM

    Governor you are correct. Comey and the rest want a Democratic win in November so they won't be held accountable for their devious actions. I am currently not only sick of hearing from Comey I am sick and tired of all the rest of them. Even FOX goes overboard with all of this Russia, Trump talk. So I think I will take a break and just watch reruns of Andy of Mayberry and I Love Lucy. Don't worry Saturday night I will be in front of my TV watching Huckabee on TBN!!

    What is good about the Trump witch hunt is that it gives license for all of the swamp creatures to stick their snouts out of the Washington slime and demonstrate their both their stupidity and the bias that rules their lives. A new reptile pops up every day, yesterday it was Leon Panetta. What a smarmy creature. From the other side of the aisle it was Newt (apt name) Gingrich. who pops up on the side of an issue that gets him the most publicity. Please do not be deluded into thinking that the denizens of the Capitol dung come from one affiliation exclusively. There are the usual Brennan, Comey, Pelosi, Schumer, Durbin, Swalwell, Shaheen, Hoyer, Blumenthal, et al, but add Bush (yeah, that one), Flake, Corker, McCain, Collins, Rove, Kasich, et al.
    Let's just say that you would not want to be in the foxhole with any of these snakes during the Battle of the Bulge.

    Governor....God forbid if the Demoncrats pull off election wins and then file articles of impeachment against Trump, it will be the end to this republic. Judging by the insane anger and hate from the left, against threats from decent citizens on the other end of the spectrum....this civil war, already in progress by the left, will become a reality. The left has the mics, the films, the media stations and such, but the vast majority of patriots ready to battle against them will be overwhelming. If it does happen look for countries that hate us take up with the left...then bye-bye USA.

    Bring back the O.S.S.
    - by that, I mean the FBI and CIA need to be replaced by new/retread organizations that actually work.

    My wife held a tenured position in Fairfax, VA until the place became Democratic. They got rid of old-school conservatives by abolishing the positions. Nice. Neat. Well done (if sneaky) ... and, of course, replacing them with new titles.

    So, we can learn from liberals (pardon the alliteration):
    1. Establish new agencies - OSS and Law Enforcement Advisory agency, respectively, for example, corresponding to the CIA and FBI.
    2. Staff the new organizations with selected personnel from the existing agencies.
    3. Transfer the mandates, and
    4. Declare the CIA and FBI supernumerary.

    Both have been problematic since their inception, from cross-dressing director Hoover to the Bay of Pigs. Give the good people there a "place of honor" to hang their hat, and let history do with the FBI and CIA and it may. In rewriting the role of the FBI, for instance, it should be strictly advisory to state/local police, not the other way 'round as it has become. Both organizations should reflect the 10th amendment to the Constitution.

    - and, Thanks for your service, also.

    How come the facts aren't being reported by FOX News? Strzok worked for Brennan in Iran as a CIA counterespionage section chief. Peter Strzok grew up in Iran, where his father was influential in the CIA effort to overthrow the Shah and install the Ayatollah in 1979. Strzok served as Obama and Brennan’s middle man in dealings with the Iranians. His title at the FBI was ceremonial, he reported to Brennan. Strzok’s wife Melissa Hodgman, Associate Director of the enforcement division of the Securities and Exchange Commission, was involved in some way. Real estate mogul Timothy Blixseth admitted that he saw records from CIA and NSA whistleblower Dennis Montgomery proving that Clapper and Obama CIA director John Brennan oversaw repeated spying on the phone calls of President Donald Trump and millions of other private American citizens, including Supreme Court Justice John Roberts and FISA court judge Reggie Walton. Fired former FBI director James Comey received evidence from the whistle blower’s lawyer but sat on it. Walton accepted Flynn's plea and then recused himself. Brennan and Strzok may have black mailed Supreme Court Justice John Roberts over the adoption of his 2 central American children, giving us his controversial Obamacare decision. Page is taking a page from John McCain, she is the songbird of the FBI.

    Pray for America and our President and his entire team daily. So thankful for voices like yours, Governor, that help shed light on all the buzz of the headlines daily. Knowing that God is on the throne and that America is in the hands of a man and team that aim to set her back on a good path of peace and prosperity is encouraging. Yet, the raging battle is far from over and it is prayer and support at the polls that will take this great land out of the darkness that is trying to cover it....Stay calm, PRAY AND VOTE!!

    Governor Huckabee; John Brennan as I understand converted to Islam. Is it no wonder that he was Obamas nominee of choice for CIA Director? You know the old adage " it takes one to know one ". That alone should send up red flags, has Mr. Brennan been investigated? I wonder what is his real history?
