There are many people who suspect, with good reason, that a number of the stories the White House and media are obsessing over, from horseback Border Patrol agents "whipping" migrants to vaccine mandates, are all what Hitchcock called “MacGuffins,” just inventions meant to distract you from the real story, and that’s the horrifying situation Biden created in Afghanistan.

At the link, former US ambassador to El Salvador and Afghanistan war veteran Ron Johnson recaps what’s actually happened in Afghanistan over the past few weeks and debunks some of the many lies we’re being told about it.

And there’s the latest from the new, “moderate,” businesslike Taliban that Biden thinks we can trust and deal with: they’re now displaying dead bodies in public and leaving one swinging from a crane as a lesson to the public.

And yes, it’s being reported (not by liberal outlets, of course) that there are still many Americans and allies of America stuck in Afghanistan, left behind to face the Taliban’s brutality by the Biden Administration

Biden's invisible gremlin

By Mike Huckabee

Like the little boy in “Family Circus” who blames everything he breaks on an invisible gremlin named “Not Me,” nothing is ever President Biden’s fault. Friday, he again tried to blame his myriad self-caused disasters on his predecessor, Donald Trump, whining, “Take a look at what I inherited when I came into office.”

That prompted several conservatives to comply by listing just a few things that Biden inherited from Trump: the most secure Southern border in history, two vaccines (and a distribution system that was already inoculating nearly 100,000 Americans a day), energy independence, an intelligent and safe Afghanistan withdrawal plan, and Bagram Air Base and 2500 soldiers to provide flexibility. I might add that he also inherited an incredibly strong economy that was bouncing back after being artificially shut down over COVID, cases of which were declining (Reminder: Biden blamed Trump – not China – for every COVID death on Trump’s watch, and now he blames Trump supporters for every COVID death on his own watch.)

Oh, and he also blamed the weather. And “racist” Border Patrol agents who whipped Haitians, even though they really didn’t (that was just their reins flying; they don’t carry whips or whip people with their reins.) And the Haitians wouldn’t even have been there if it weren’t for his calamitous border policies that are luring illegal immigrants into the USA by the tens of thousands.

That unfounded attack on the Border Patrol agents proved too much even for former Democratic Presidential candidate and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, who blasted Biden for acting as judge, jury and executioner by smearing the agents as violent racists without waiting for any evidence. She said, “He’s absolutely wrong and he needs to apologize to the American people for saying what he said.”

I won’t hold my breath waiting for Biden to apologize or even to acknowledge his own part in setting the various fires that are nipping at his feet (he learned from Obama to accuse people of racism and wait for the facts to appear later), but I do have some good news for those falsely-accused Border Patrol agents. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said he wants them to know, “If they are at risk of losing their job by a President who is abandoning his duty to secure the border, you have a job in the state of Texas. I will hire you to help Texas secure our border.”

They should be working for Texas instead of the feds, anyway. They know how to ride a horse, which is obviously something nobody in Washington understands at all.

Haitian immigrants update

By Mike Huckabee

Speaking of the 12,000 Haitian illegal immigrants that have disappeared from under the bridge in Del Rio, there seems to be some confusion about where they disappeared to. DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claimed they are in immigration proceedings, with the implication being that they were returned to Mexico or wherever they had been living.

But former Acting ICE Director Tom Homan accused Mayorkas of misleading the public. He says, as we reported here last week, that they were just given “notices to report.” That means they were released into the United States and will only be in “immigration proceedings” if they actually honor the government’s “request” that they show up at an ICE office to turn themselves in.

I’d say that’s about as likely as President Biden honoring my request that he resign.

Good news for a change 

By Mike Huckabee

I hate having to bring you so much bad news all the time (hopefully, that will change after November, 2022), so I’m always on the lookout for some good news to share. And how about this for good news? The Guardian newspaper has a round-up of recent studies that suggest decades of official public health advice may be wrong: steaks, dairy, salt, eggs and other delicious foods may be good for you, while it’s processed foods such as low-fat cheese that may be bad for your health.

To cite just one example: a Swedish study that followed 4,150 people over 16 years found that a diet rich in dairy fat might actually lower your risk of heart disease. This reminds me of Woody Allen's comedy "Sleeper," set 200 years in the future, where doctors couldn't figure out why people in our time ate things like wheat germ ("Didn't they know about hot fudge?")

You’ll want to read the rest. It’s encouraging news, but don’t let it convince you to go hog wild on your diet. But it does make you ponder, if recent events haven’t already, whether our public health experts have any idea what they’re talking about.

Who edited the Maricopa County final audit report?

By Mike Huckabee

There’s something odd about the Maricopa County, Arizona, Final Audit Report. We’re making no accusations at this point but would like some answers.

It has been reported that part of the Executive Summary has undergone some editing. A draft that was released by Patrick Byrne before the final presentation on Friday contained this passage:

“In the 2020 presidential election, the margin of victory was only 10,457 votes, a small fraction of the 57,734 ballots with known issues. Again, this is almost 6 times the margin of victory in the presidential race and is multiples of the margin of victory in other races. Based on these factual findings, the election should not be certified, and the reported results are not reliable.”

That last statement about certification was apparently edited out of the final report. If that’s the case, we would just like to know who was responsible for this change and why they did it, given the accuracy of the statements that preceded it. Do the reported results sound reliable to you? Really?

Again, no accusations, just a call for answers. It would also be nice to know what else might have been altered. THEN we might have some accusations…

Arizona Audit Final Report Was Watered Down: Reports from Cyber Ninjas Were Edited, Most Damning Statements Removed - What Else Was Removed?

THE EPOCH TIMES has an updated report on what was presented Friday during the Arizona Senate hearing. It has details regarding the anomalies that were found. Highly recommended reading...

Senate President Karen Fann sent a letter Friday to Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, calling for further investigation and outlining her concerns about the following:

--- signature verification for mail-in ballots

--- voter roll accuracy

--- security of election systems

--- record-keeping of evidence after elections

Brnovich’s office issued a statement that said they had no comment on specific allegations at this time and that they would “thoroughly review the Senate’s information and evidence.” We’ll see.

The recount that was done as one part of the audit found little difference in the vote tallies, but that was just recounting the same ballots over again. Nevertheless, mainstream media reports picked up on that as if it were the only finding, because that’s the story they wanted to tell. Sen. Fann said evidence was found of numerous problems that affected tens of thousands of ballots, including laws being broken and chain of custody not being maintained.

Arizona Democrats responded by (what else?) attacking Cyber Ninjas, one of the teams working on the audit. Democrats obviously have no interest in identifying problems and reforming the system, no matter how much of a mess it is shown to be, as long as that system benefits them.

An "inside" perspective on the Durham investigation

By Mike Huckabee

Kash Patel, former lead investigator for the Republican-led House Intelligence Committee, appeared on EPOCH TV over the weekend to talk about the Sussmann indictment. This video provides a concise overview of what we’ve been talking about the past week and offers additional details as well.

For example, Patel said that Sussmann and Marc Elias were the two top lawyers at Perkins Coie overseeing all legal issues of the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Sussmann is not some peon.

He also commented, as we have, about the unusual length of the indictment, saying this is not at all a typical indictment for one count of making a false statement, which might run a couple of pages, This runs 27 pages and is what’s known as a “speaking indictment.”

Sussmann and Elias brought in “tens of millions of dollars” to handle “everything from election law to campaign finance to any criminal allegations that might come up, to state law...” Indeed, we saw how Elias jetted around to different states before the election with a brigade of attorneys filing lawsuits to change state election laws.

Patel described Perkins Coie as a “behemoth.” It had to be one, to handle all the legalities –- and illegalities, ha –- of the Democrats’ run for President. These two attorneys also went out and hired “internet research” (campaign dirt) firm Fusion GPS, paying founder Glenn Simpson million of dollars for whatever his team could come up with, including the “Russia” stories. Of course, Simpson hired Christopher Steele. As you and I knew, it all traces back to Hillary Clinton.

Patel laid all this out in a most understandable way, so if you know people who are confused by all the twists and turns, just send them our summary, which includes the link, above.

He noted that opposition research is a normal part of political campaigns, and I can tell you from experience that this is true. Candidates even run oppo research on themselves, just to see what comes up. If they find something that might be an issue, their opponent certainly will.

It was just a few days before the election that the phony Alfa Bank story hit. And Hillary tweeted: “It’s time for Trump to answer some serious questions about his ties to Russia.” There was no basis in fact here at all, but the tweet included these fake bullet points:

1. Donald Trump has a secret server. [Aside: I know. That was HRC!]

2. It was set up privately to communicate with Putin-tied Alfa Bank.

3. When a reporter asked about it, they shut it down.

4. One week later, they created a new server with a different name for the same purpose.

As we now know, the FBI used this information in its FISA request for surveillance. Sussmann was the one who passed it to them. And then he lied about working on anyone else's behalf.

In examining what happened, Patel did what we like to do, which is to turn it around and ask “what if” the Trump campaign were found to have hired a law firm to research and “find” a connection between Clinton campaign headquarters and the Russian government, created a fake story about the Clinton campaign “pinging” back and forth through a bank to coordinate with the Russians, and released this to the media and the FBI right before the 2016 election?

“That would’ve been international headline news,” he said, and we all know that’s true. But it’s just the opposite when the CLINTON campaign is found to have done this. The media give it the tiniest bit of coverage possible. But Patel doesn’t think they can get away with that much longer.

He noted in this interview that Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation was charged with (among other things) finding out how the Alfa bank story fit in and if there was really anything to it. The House Intelligence Committee was looking into this at the same time and hadn’t come out with their report, as they were “just staffers on the Hill,” operating without subpoena power, etc. Mueller had sweeping subpoena power and cooperation from law enforcement.

Patel puts this Sussmann indictment together with that of Kevin Clinesmith, whom you’ll recall was charged with altering an official record that was used against Carter Page in the FISA warrant to spy on him. When looking at both of these, he sees that together they cover “two big components” of the investigation into the Russia Hoax. The former deals with the phony media campaign, outside the government, and the latter with the phony investigation going inside the government. “So, I think there’s a larger conspiracy at play here,” he said.

He sees this in the long “speaking indictment” that Durham has filed. Though most of the conspirators aren’t named, he's pretty confident of most of those identities, “if not all of them.”

“I think he’s just started,” Patel said of Durham.

IMPORTANT POINT: One thing the media are saying right now is that Durham’s investigation has gone on so long, he’s coming to the end of his official funding in just a few days and needs to wrap it up. (They wish!) According to Patel, the investigation cannot be shut down because Durham has just issued a federal indictment and this case has to be adjudicated in some fashion, by plea or by trial, which typically takes 12-18 months. In the meantime, Durham gets to continue his work. “So, I laugh at anyone in the media who tells me they’re worried about Durham being defunded,” he said. “He literally CAN’T, because he’s in the middle of a federal prosecution.”

It occurs to me that this might be another reason for Durham’s under-the-wire timing of the Sussmann indictment.

One concern Patel does have is a potential conflict of interest for the judge assigned Sussmann’s case: U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper. His wife, prominent DC attorney Amy Jeffress, is a former top aide to then-Attorney General Eric Holder. She has represented...(drum roll, please)...Lisa Page, who reported to Andrew McCabe and, along with him, is one of the most central figures in this scandal. She worked for FBI general counsel James Baker, who is the one who reviewed the FISA applications, and also teamed (very closely) with Peter Strzok, who led “Crossfire Hurricane”!

I’m sorry, but that big a conflict just will not fly. How did this judge GET the case, anyway?

As Patel pointed out, Lisa Page might very well be a witness in Sussmann’s trial. (I would add that apparently there WILL be a trial, as Sussmann has already pleaded “not guilty.”) Conflicts of interest can be cited simply over the possibility of such things happening. As wild as it seems, unless the case is reassigned, we could easily have a situation in which a witness in the case has been represented by the judge’s wife.

The judge should recuse himself, or the attorney general should reassign the case. But with Merrick Garland at the helm, how do we trust this process?

    I would like to see a carnival come to D.C. where the Democrats can ride the ponies in a circle. After all, it’s part of their dog and pony show.

    The Democrats may not know much about horses, but they should be familiar with what comes out of them, as well as bulls, HS and BS.

    I was listening to the AZ RNC woman (sorry I forgot her name) tell how the AZ voting records are all out of whack and they know it and not admitting. She had documentation (actual records) of ballots that were done by 4 different people but under the same ballot number;; another where (and I don't remember exact number) but over a thousand had voted four times in the same election. Fraud is rampant and I feel much is the case here in Washington State but getting anyone of these GOP people to make an effort call the corruption in our records, they all seem to be okay with letting Inslee and his crew of corrupt Democrats continue to let it slide. So very disheartened and no good to write to Murray or her counterpart or Rino Newhouse. All a bunch of boot lickers. I'm not too eager to endorse Morris either. She's cagey! Worked in our District schools for 30 yrs and then went back in 2015 as a substitute and was rescheduled for work until I was told I had to have the vaccine. No, thank you. I will not relinquish my right to say what I have to do to be FREE. I'm advocating against CRT so I wouldn't be their favorite substitute anyway. Governor Huckabee, pray your daughter gets elected and thank you for being a voice for (as Judge Jeanine would say) truth and justice and the American way! God love.

    All we are hearing about is Gabby this and Gabby that. There are 5,000 unaccompanied children missing from the southern border. We can only assume these children are being trafficked. Where is the investigation?
