SHAKE-UP AT THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT

Monday, President Trump fired Defense Secretary Mark Esper, announcing that Esper would be immediately replaced by Christopher C. Miller, Director of the National Counterterrorism Center.

Trump gave no reason for the firing, but during the summer, Esper said he didn’t support invoking the Insurrection Act to use federal troops to quell the riots (which may be true, but you don’t undercut your boss’s ability to use the threat of invoking it.) There’s also reportedly conflict over whether to brief Biden associates on defense issues before the election is even settled. This set off other shakeups including resignations and likely further firings and reassignments.

I’m just linking to these stories because most of the mainstream media coverage is overheated partisan speculation about how Trump is “dangerously” purging the Pentagon to stack it with “loyalists.” Because no President in history until now has ever expected his Cabinet members not to publicly undercut his authority. That must be why the DC deep state is so teeming with Trump loyalists.

OUR NEUTERED MEDIA

Tuesday, Joe Biden (I’ll call him President-Elect Biden if and when he actually becomes that) held a press conference, and we got to see the 180-degree change in how the media will behave toward the President if he replaces Trump. It’s sort of like the difference in your dog before and after he’s neutered.

Biden helped by not calling on any reporters who might even possibly ask a hard question. The rest remained in their old habit of making most questions about how horrible Trump is, don’t you agree?

If they're really having trouble thinking of questions, I have one that has nothing to do with China, voter fraud, fracking, socialism, Hunter's laptop, court stacking or any of the myriad other subjects we’re not allowed to ask about. This is it:

“Sir, you’ve claimed that President Trump has never done anything to help anyone other than himself, yet he’s donated his entire $1.6 million Presidential salary back to the Treasury. Since you are also independently wealthy, having made an estimated $15 million in the two years after leaving office in 2016, will you also donate your paycheck back to the government?”

THE BLUE-WAVE THAT WASN'T

The good news that came out of last week’s election is the “blue wave” that wasn’t. Despite Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi claiming a “mandate” to impose the Democrats’ agenda, the only potential good news for them was at the very top of the ticket, and that’s not settled yet, no matter how many fictitious “Office of the President-Elect” banners they print at Kinko’s.

According to the pollsters, who turned out to be less reliable than a Magic 8-Ball, the Dems were supposed to easily retake the Senate (with far more Republicans defending seats than Democrats) and increase their House majority. Instead, the Senate balance hangs on two runoffs in Georgia, after Democrat Cal Cunningham finally conceded to Republican Sen. Thom Tillis in North Carolina, and it appears that Republican Sen. Dan Sullivan will easily win reelection in Alaska, bringing the GOP total to 50.

Republicans haven’t retaken the House, but they actually increased their numbers, and could gain even more. Tuesday, as the long counts continued, they added one seat and retained another.

In Texas, which is always just on the cusp of “turning blue,” the Dems didn’t pick up a single House seat. Tuesday, Republican Beth Van Duyne was declared the winner in Texas District 24, retaining that seat for the GOP. Meanwhile, in Orange County, California, Republican Michelle Steel took back a seat that the Democrats flipped in 2018, adding another seat to the GOP total. There are still two more California races where Republicans are ahead, one a potential flip and the other a retention.

In another bit of news worth mentioning, so far, the GOP has added 14 new women to its House caucus. That’s the type of news that would be celebrated all over the media if it happened for Democrats, but I’m telling you here because you might not hear about it otherwise.

REGISTERING TO VOTE AFTER YOU DIE

Sen. Lindsay Graham, citing information from the Trump campaign, claimed that among early voters and absentee/mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania, they’d found over100 people who were believed to be dead, 15 who are verified to be dead but voted anyway, and six who somehow managed to register to vote after they died.

I’m sure the media will find a rational explanation for that, like that the dead rose to register to vote on Halloween.


REPLACING PELOSI AS SPEAKER ISN'T IMPOSSIBLE

I told you that I think there’s virtually no chance Nancy Pelosi will lose her iron grip on the Speaker’s gavel. But just FYI: there are some articles popping up to suggest one extreme longshot way that she might be removed. Since Republicans have gained enough seats to get very close to parity, all they would need is a few moderate Democrats who are sick of their Party’s toxic lurch to the far left to join with them, and they could replace her with a moderate compromise candidate.

Sure, it’s not likely, but we can dream, can’t we? And as Ed Driscoll at Instapundit points out, it would give Pelosi more time to get her hair done.

READERS WRITE IN FROM BATTLEGROUND STATES

Of the numerous letters we’ve received in response to Tuesday morning’s commentary, some were from the battleground states currently under scrutiny by the Trump campaign and, apparently, by some in federal law enforcement. Georgia, in particular, is taking center stage with the critical importance of the upcoming Senate races there. I though it would be good to pass along what a couple of these had to say.

From Ed T. of Pennsylvania:

I live in Pennsylvania, and I feel, like most people here, that we were robbed from the results of the election. With very few exceptions, no matter where you went in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, you saw Trump signs everywhere, and the election results do NOT reflect that! Sure, Philadelphia is always gonna go with the lunatic faction, with some exceptions and parts of Center County and Westmorland County also, but by and large what I saw personally here was Trump supporters everywhere I went!

The rats ?? from the swamp spread out, and the idiots who can’t understand normal thinking followed along and did their bidding for Biden and company. A horribly sad outcome for EVERYONE in America, rats included, because at some point they will realize exactly what adults with real intelligence tried to tell everyone. God have mercy on us all.

From the Gov:

Thank you, Ed, for writing. We have some breaking news from your state: As Tucker Carson reported Tuesday evening, lawmakers in Pennsylvania have called for “a bipartisan investigatory committee” with subpoena power (important) to look into voter fraud. I hope we QUICKLY get to the bottom of what might have happened there to effectively disenfranchise the people you talk about –- the thousands and thousands who went to Trump’s rallies (we saw it!) and many more besides. When leftists say to “count every vote,” they do not mean YOURS. Maybe we’re not too late to stop what they’re trying to do.

From James S. of Georgia:

We should have acknowledged the "handwriting on the wall"! The DNC –- in lockstep with the almost totally liberal, swamp-controlled media –- have (looks like!) stolen the minds of too many Americans and have stolen this election! Talk about brainwashing, over 75,000,000 voters have had a steady diet of Hate Trump 24/7 for at least 4 years. About 71,000,000 were blessed enough to hear the truth from conservative sources (like you, Governor Huckabee!) and many more! Now, we are in a crisis situation with the potential to literally lose our country and become a Third World nation.

I never thought that the fate of America would come down to my beloved state of Georgia, but that seems to be the case. I urge all who might read this comment and agree, to use every means you may have with connections to Georgia voters, to vote for David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler for the Senate. If that "firewall" fails, God help us!!

I am praying and praying and praying, and I know God is in control, but I'm not going to lean on my shovel and pray for a hole!!!

From the Gov:

Thank you for giving your opinion of what’s happening in Georgia. We’ve even had stories about out-of-state Democrats who are planning to “move” to your state and establish residency in time to vote in those races in January and who are calling for others to do so. If Democrats would go that far, they obviously would have no problem doing what it appears they were doing for Biden on Election Day.

You’re right --- “praying for the hole” is not good enough. Every Republican in Georgia better pick up the shovel! The state of Georgia needs to have its act together in plenty of time to deal with whatever Democrats might be planning. We already know they'll be pouring millions of dollars into the campaigns for both of those senatorial races, and who knows where all that money will be coming from? (We do have a good idea.) They’ll be trying everything they think they might conceivably get away with.

These senate seats are supposed to represent the people of GEORGIA. Of course, as far as the leadership of the Democrat Party is concerned, their goal has nothing to do with what the people of Georgia want. But you don't need me to tell you that.

BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY

    Hi Mike,

    I think soon we as Americans need to realize that the Saul Alinsky playbook is being used to literally destroy America. I have a small book explaining this, and there are some shocking statements. 1. Saul Alinsky's hero is Lucifer for being the first rebel who gained his own kingdom. 2. Saul Alinsky thinks the American system is unjust, so he wants to destroy it and set up his own American Eutopia. 3. This is a scary one that I think we are witnessing. Saul Alinksy separated himself from Communists, it seems, only because of the tactics of Communists trying to ruin America. Saul's idea was to use the American system in order to destroy the American system, and that's what we are witnessing. 4. Because Saul and his radicals believe the American system is unjust, they feel justified in doing what ever it takes to destroy the system, including lying, slandering, and rigging elections. And don't we see this when Democrats say they are supporting the Constitution, but then try to take away people's 1st, 2nd, 5th, and 10 Amendment rights? Below is a video from the same author of the booklet I read on the same subject. I haven't watched the full video, but it probably goes into all of this. Maybe you know about this already, but I think America needs to take this seriously. The Radicals (who call themselves Progressives) are already at war with America. The American people must be made aware of this:

    I love your new format. One suggestion: Underline your links so they stick out better. Just being in blue doesn't always distinguish that copy from the black copy.

    Keep up the good work. I read your postings every day.

    My heart is breaking for President Trump at a depth that is rather surprising even to myself...If, because I have written so many comments, I have some kind of "identity" associated with my name, the reader knows that every time I, IN my comment,have stated what is my "love" for President Trump, I have always made sure that I qualify that, because I love him with CHRIST'S brand of love...that can, concomitantly, love the sinner and hate his sin....I am not blind to Trump 's "failings" and I've also written about how Trump keeps shooting HIMSELF in the foot........

    ........AND I HAVE TAKEN THE TIME TO STATE THIS LEST ANY READER SHOULD FEEL THAT WHAT I AM ABOUT TO STATE IS THE END-PRODUCT OF MY SEEING TRUMP THROUGH ROSE COLORED GLASSES....BUT, RATHER, IT IS THE END-PRODUCT OF MY SEEING HIM THROUGH THE EYES OF MY HEART...that knows things the mind cannot comprehend....AND it is THAT "indefinable" that is causing my heart to break for Trump and to state that.....

    There has been a crime committed against Trump in that...from the day he took office, the Democrats have done nothing but tear him down with never one kind word for something he has accomplished! In view of some past WOUNDING..that authors Trump's need to be a winner....what is hard for so many people to understand is that Trump receives not being agreed with as being a loser which inflicts him with PAIN that authors his ANGER...It is because OF his unhealed wounds that he is blind to the fact OF his irrational behavior....AND...

    It is BECAUSE this IS the backdrop behind how I see Trump's behavior, do I see the Democrats'...and the media's...CONSTANT expressions of hatred and contempt toward Trump as pouring never-ending vinegar into his wounds..the cruelty OF which I see as not only BEING criminal, but of Satan himself!

    In view OF this reality it is the height of hypocrisy for Biden...and all the other Democrats....to dare claim that Trump is the one who has divided this country! No! It is their evil hatred that has divided this country and for them to claim they are going to bring UNITY to this country is ludicrous because if they can't love Trump, they can't love ANYONE.. and BECAUSE they can't love ANYONE they CANNOT bring UNITY to this country because only CHRIST'S love CAN bring that unity because, unlike the Democrats, Christ's love loves EVERYONE!!!

    Now wouldn’t God be displaying His sense of humor should the bulk of the Georgian Democrats take umbrage at outsiders moving in to dictate how they should be running their state, and vote Republican.

    Can you ask the Trump attorney's to clean up the corruption by the Democrats a little faster! They have been stealing elections all around the country for years. Clean up the corruption in Chicago politics that has gone on since the 1900's. They have a way of getting the dead to vote and mystery ballots showing up in truckloads the following morning of elections. Clean up the lying and cheating in every city of this country!!
    Thanks and God Bless them all in this crucial work!!

    There was a reason that Joe Biden said election night "wait until the last vote is counted". Obviously he knew that there would be a never-ending stream of fraudulent ballots to ensure his supposed election.
    Secondly, this cannot be allowed to happen, but there seems to be absolutely concerted effort to stop this travesty. Martha MacCallum just sits with a smile and discusses the new Biden cabinet. Otherwise Republicans remain passive just waiting to get on the next cattle car.
    Has everyone in the Republican Party been neutered except for President Trump?
    In the end, as always, Republicans don't know how to put up a fight. Useless idiots like sleazy Lindsey Graham. God help us.

    The Media is going to continue to hate America and our President another plot is coming the Lefties will ask for healing and togetherness that is fake wishing the Lefties are setting a trap to pounce on all the rebuilding President Trump did for the USA the Lefties are preparing to rip apart and tear it down. Jim Clayburn he is equal to that of a Carp (A bottom feeder and low life fish) doesn't want its party to speak of Socialism and defund the police again although that is the goal of the party the destruction of the American Constitution like ballots coming in the back door in the middle of the night the Lefties will destroy what is left of the Constitution without seeing the light of Justice If President Trump is not reelected I hope to watch the lefties eat its own as the election isn't over they are already sizing each other just waiting to kill each other. Just like mob and gang members do to each other searching for power.

    Gov Huckabee, in 2008 there was a guy from Arkansas that received over 40,000 votes in the Republican primary defeating Mitt Romney by over 10,000 votes and John McCain by over 25,000 votes.

    Well done btw!

    On the other side of the aisle Barack Obama received 37.6% of the vote whiles John Edwards and Hillary received about 29% of the vote.
    Then there was Joe Biden with less than 1% support, he dropped would then drop out of the race.

    This was not the first time he was a dropout. In 1988, he wouldn’t even make it to the primary when the media actually vetted him for plagiarism and lying about his educational record.

    So, now in 2020 Joe Biden somehow won the Presidential nomination with the help of a few friends near the end of the campaign. After receiving the nomination he campaigns from the basement. When he shows his face he doesn’t know where he is or which family member is which.

    We had tremendous enthusiasm on Trump’s side. Rallies packed, people excited for America. Reflected in that was approximately 9 million more votes for Trump than when he beat Hillary.

    We are led to believe that Biden garnered a record 75 million votes! 6 million more than Obama 2008 and 10 million more than Hillary in 2016.

    Do Americans have stupid written on their foreheads?

    What is the remedy Gov Huckabee? Or are we the American people just supposed to allow the DC global establishment to simply complete this theft with their complicit media’s help?

    Would love your thoughts on Dominion computer system and algorithms set up to steal this election from Americans.

    Thank you for your service over the years and that of your daughter serving as a wonderful Press Secretary for our great President Trump.

    I personally, have waited my whole life for a President Trump. I don’t wanna see him removed from office when the legal voters supported him en mass and are about to be disenfranchised.
