During the 2020 campaign, we speculated that the main goal of the Democrats was to get the Obama machine back in power, to the extent that one of our researchers even predicted that Michelle Obama would be the last-minute Democrat nominee, as she seemed to have the best chance of fulfilling that goal.

As it turned out, the former First Lady gets to continue relaxing at the shore with her friends, sipping drinks with little umbrellas, since she didn’t have to give up the easy life after all and enter the political fray. This wasn’t because the goal had changed --- not at all --- but because the Obamas and their strategists had put together a plan for reaching it by other means. And in the end, that’s exactly what they did.

If former acting Director of National Intelligence Rick Grenell is correct, the Obama/Biden “shadow President” will be none other than Obama’s former National Security Adviser Susan Rice.


Biden was selected as a relatively moderate-seeming Presidential candidate, and California Sen. Kamala Harris was the Obama designee to be on the ticket with him, even though her own presidential campaign hadn’t gone anywhere and she had dropped out even before her home state’s primary, without receiving even one vote from any state. She was there to provide the requisite racial diversity and leftist credentials, and also to function as Obama’s anointed one and likely Biden’s quick successor.

Now that Biden is about to take office, we can see that the Executive Branch of government is going to look like “old home week,” with Obama’s people back in full force. First, as reported on PJ MEDIA by Robert Spencer of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, Biden’s deputy secretary of state will be Wendy Sherman, whose main “accomplishment” was negotiating Obama’s Iran deal, which Obama still apparently views as the big star in his crown.

Next, Biden’s undersecretary for political affairs will be another Obama official whose name rings a bell: Victoria Nuland. Of these two, Biden said they “have secured some of the most defining national security and diplomatic achievements in recent memory. I am confident they will use their diplomatic experience and skill to restore America’s global and moral leadership. America is back.” being what? I suggest back to being the same chumps we were before President Trump assumed office. Read Spencer’s piece for details of what Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said about the Iran deal two years ago. Iran was blatantly lying, he said, when they claimed to have no plans to construct nuclear weapons. The Iranians continued to work on expanding their nuclear weapons program, Project Amad, and to deny anything about this to US officials. So here we go again.

"We can now prove that Project Amad was a comprehensive program to design, build and test nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said then. “We can also prove that Iran is secretly storing Project Amad material to use at a time of its choice to develop nuclear weapons.”

Spencer writes that “now Joe Biden is rewarding the chief architect of this mess with a promotion for her incompetence.” (Question: is it “incompetence” when an employee does exactly what her boss instructs her to do? Maybe that’s HIS incompetence.) “Nor is it Wendy Sherman alone,” Spencer continues. “The entire foreign policy arm of the Biden administration is set to be staffed by these failures, phonies and frauds. But with the establishment media doing everything it can to put the best possible face on the coming fiasco, most Americans will have no idea what is going on, or why.”

Grenell appeared on SUNDAY MORNING FUTURES with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the incoming administration.

About Susan Rice being appointed to head Biden’s White House Domestic Policy Counsel, he noted that she has no background whatsoever in domestic policy. She’d been on Biden’s short list for running mate, but this way of bringing her in was much less risky and doesn’t even require senate confirmation. “She is...somebody who is going to be incredibly influential,” Grenell said. As a former national security advisor, he said, “she knows that entire apparatus.”


They’d been making moves in the Obama administration towards making her secretary of state, but backed off because “she didn’t have the votes,” for senate confirmation, Grenell said. “I think the reality is, she’s going to be running foreign policy [and] domestic policy. She’s probably extremely happy that Kamala Harris is going to be preoccupied with the Senate, trying to manage 50-50, being the 101st senator there, and won’t have a lot of time to get into policy issues.”

"I think you need to watch Susan Rice very closely,” Grenell said. “She will be the shadow President.”

He noted how far left Biden has drifted in even the past five years. “The progressives have clearly taken over him, and I think that that’s why he won. They wanted someone who had a name, that they could control, and Susan Rice being right there at the White House, to be the shadow President, is probably exactly where she wants to be --- behind the scenes, and unchecked.”

Again, here we have it: in effect, the third term of President Obama. Susan Rice will be in the White House, positioned to run essentially everything.

On the 10th of this month, David Marcus wrote an opinion piece for the NEW YORK POST that talked about her upcoming role.

For those who have sort memories, Susan Rice participated not only in the repeated, blatant lying about what led to the Benghazi attack, but also in the “unmasking” of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in phone calls that were appropriate for him to make as part of Trump's transition team. Marcus calls her “a veritable poster child of Obama-era corruption.”

She lied about her knowledge of the spying on Trump's team as well. When asked by Judy Woodruff of PBS if she was aware of it, she said, “I know nothing about this. I was surprised to see the reports.” We now know that she knew perfectly well about this and helped lead the effort. (The same could be said of Biden, of course, who even brought up the Logan Act on January 5, 2017, as a way to go after Flynn.) The new White House team is just counting on enough of us to move on from this.

Grenell hopes that in the last few days of the Trump administration, we’ll see a “treasure trove” of declassified documents that offer more details about the knowledge career officials had from the start that the “Russia” story was all phony and politically motivated. “Those voices are in the documents,” he said. Until now, bureaucrats have “classified them away."

Regardless of what is revealed, we can be sure of one thing: what we’re about to get, as of Wednesday, is Obama Administration 2.0. Like Obama 1.0, it will be so concerned with its own agenda that honesty will be its last consideration.

    Today January 20th is the saddest day in the history of this country. This morning I was thinking about my parents and the time in which they grew up. A WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf War and yet there was FREEDOM to voice your opinion, go where you like, and achieve any goals. I look back on my growing up 1946 to the present (Thank you GOD). My husband and I both are thankful for the country we grew up in and raised our family in. This will not be the same for our children and grand children sadly, but then those of us with half a brain know this. To keep my blood pressure from going through the roof I have come to realize now even more than ever is the time to keep our eyes on GOD. HE gave us a book laying out HIS plan and we know the ending.

    I just started getting your newsletter a few weeks ago. I didn't know you had one otherwise I would have done so sooner. My concern is how do we as Christians and conservatives take back our country? The Dems have already stolen one election and with some Republican Senators not speaking up enough about this and now have lost the only hope we had in leading the senate, just what do we do? Free speech is now censored, and 2 Senators are being harassed in Congress for speaking out. Most other senators want them kicked out, Republican and Democrats both! I voted for you instead of Trump in 2016 and was sad when you retired. Trump won and although I am now a follower and supporter, it seems there are very few Republicans that will take on the rats and if they do they are are ridiculed and harassed both in and out of office. So, please tell me how we are supposed to fight? Prayer is all this country has left and I expect that to be banned. All I can pray for is the rapture as I see no other options. They have stolen one election and they will do it again.

    Thank you Gov. Huckabee for your Morning Edition. I look forward to reading it each day, as it helps me get through these very “troublesome” days in our country! I fear for America’s future as we install a new administration who will NOT put America first, but only their own personal gain and power. Please continue to bring us the truth, and God Bless you and America!

    I want to know why those that are known to be corrupt and have done things that a normal American would be prosecuted are not??? There's proof but NO prosecutions! I'm along with many other Americans are sick of all the evilness in our government and nothing is being done about it!

    Mike, all of this upheaval in our society will, I hope and pray, fall as the Roman Empire. But at what price will this be? We are headed in the path of Venezuela and look at their state. I am so depressed that this country has fallen to such despair and corruption with no end in site. When will the American people vote out all of this corruption? But then again with the manipulation of the voting there will be no end and we will be a Socialistic government.
    And where is all the money for stimulus checks coming from and when will there be a reckoning to pay it back?
    All of this is so heartbreaking, for me and at 76 years of age. There will be no justifying this country to what it should be. I am not able to write this correctly, but hope you understand what I am trying to say.

    Thank you for your newsletter! I try to read with an open mind but it is so depressing about our country's state.

    Thank you, Darwin

    Your opinion piece on
    “president joe Biden”
    is the best written I have read yet. My thoughts exactly. Thank you so much for expressing it so well. This is NOT my America anymore. I’m 72. I don’t understand it. My ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War. My family has fought in every war-Civil war, WWI, WWII, Korean War, for this Nation. My husband was the Commander of post where Desert Storm troops landed from the very start. Our son was a pilot in Afghanistan and Iraq.
    What do I tell my Great Grandson?
    That we lost this Great Nation because we were silent sheep being led to slaughter.
    I have never prayed as much as I have since Nov. 4th. But I
    don’t think God is hearing or seeing me anymore.
    This is not my country anymore.

    Governor, this isn't a comment on your newsletter, but a question: what's going to happen to the 'flawed' elections in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Arizona, and Michigan? Is all that information about election tampering going to be swept under the rug, never to be mentioned again? Is anyone taking the accusations seriously now that Biden has been 'certified'? Thank you.

    Governor Huckabee,
    Your article rings so true and extremely concerning as Obama and his crew failed so miserably in the international arena. Leading from the rear and wanting to be everybody's friend (his friends are our enemies) was a disaster. But just what exactly are Republicans and Conservatives doing about it? And just for once can we get so called Republicans (Rhinos) and Conservatives to support a unified front? Dems can count on their constituents because they stick together like lemmings. I'd just prefer we don't go over the cliff and commit suicide with those lemmings. Keep up the good work and thank you.

    Please consider doing away with systemic racism. The first step would to be to remove all queries about race or ethnic background from all municipal and government forms. Collection of that data only supports systemic racism as per the definition of Systemic racism. I've been told that when the Maryland State police turned down hiring my son he was told straight out it was because they weren't hiring white males. That fits all definitions of systemic racism except a white was discriminated against so the government condoned it. A critical enabler for that discrimination was the requirement to identify race was facilitated by the requirement to list race or ethnic background on the application. Help stamp out racism by pushing for the end of race data collection.

    In his book, "The Allies", Winston Groom tells of Stalin remarking to Winston Churchill, who was worried about the British elections, "it doesn't matter who votes, it only matters who counts the votes." The remark was said at a meeting in Potsdam in July 1945.

    Dear Governor Huckabee, I am not for ANTIFA or the new American Revolution. Violence begets violence and no one wins. In previous comments I hear people here in California Democrat and Republican more than angry at Governor Newsome. The voters are screaming for help and Congress refuses to listen. ANTIFA is bragging on social media how they bought MAGA hats and Trump flags to get into the capitol. Trump got blamed. Congress and Biden have no clue how
    angry Americans are. Angry, about to be homeless, hungry, bills past due, illegal immigrants over 1.1 million + another 70k headed here from Honduras who will get more help than our own people. Congress and Biden cannot see past the power they have. Our country is imploding and Americans have had enough of this. I pray for our Nation but what happened on Jan. 6th was Paul Revere screaming the red coats are coming. Except they were screaming we the people need help!!! Now.

    I pray for my country everyday. I am very concerned about the future of America. Susan Rice, as you say, Will help the continued destruction and certain direction of "Obama 2.0" . I know we are near the return of Christ and I pray that He would take care of His saints.

    Thank you much for this and other newsletters that you send. I use them for info to pray.

    God take care of you

    I am 71-years old and a former life-long Democrat supporter, but since 2012-2013, I have come full circle and have been staunchly behind the Republican Party (other than my personal favorite Democrat Tulsi Gabbard). My Republican favorite is Thomas Massie. I love your newsletter and agree with close to 100% of your positions............except for the villianization of China. As a Christian, I feel there is no country that deserves that portrayal. The 1.3 billion human-beings that live there are living as good or better life than most Americans. Our foreign policy should not name-call and demean others. Our mission should be one of dialogue and understanding, not confrontation. Keep up your fantastic work....and I want to add I appreciated the wonderful work your daughter did for the Trump Administration.

    Gov. Huckabee, you mention that President Trump should have spoken sooner than he did about the rioting that happened on Jan. 6th. Have you stopped to think how often Obama took a very long time to respond to incidents. For example it took him five days before he responded to the incident in Ferguson. I know that on other occasions, for example, the incident in Cambridge when Obama called the police "stupid", he reacted before details were known and then he had the "beer summit". I don't recall what it was that Obama wanted Congress to pass immediately but then he wouldn't cut his Hawaii vacation short to come back to sign the bill (if my memory serves me right).
    So hypocritical is the left that I find it astounding!
