POLL:  Did President Trump make a good choice to replace Justice Kennedy?

---------------------------------------------

Now that FBI agent Peter Strzok has testified publicly, it’s easy to see why Republicans on the Judiciary and Oversight Committees were so disappointed after the private hearing at their inability to pry any information out of him. On Thursday, the same tactics were on display –- perhaps even more so, as cameras were rolling –- when Democrats joined forces with FBI attorneys to help Strzok avoid answering questions. Thursday’s public spectacle was stunning and even a little heartbreaking as it pulled back the curtain on our government at work.

Strzok hearing becomes shocking procedural mess; answers still hidden

By Mike Huckabee

FBI agent Peter Strzok actually did show up for his public hearing Thursday before the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. (Lisa Page’s attorney says she will go in for her closed-door hearing tomorrow.) The immediate take-away from Strzok’s interview is that the Democrats are so terrified of questions being answered that expose the FBI’s activities, they’re willing to create just about the craziest scene ever witnessed in such a hearing. And that’s saying a lot.

It was just insane –- not just on the Democratic side, either, but mostly. It’s going to take me hours to pull my slack jaw off the floor and make some sense out of this mess. In the meantime, I’ll just let you know that I was absolutely correct in my prediction of what Strzok would say to weasel out of his most infamous text: “We’ll stop it.” (“We” doesn’t mean Strzok, Page and/or the patriots at the FBI --- it means “the American people.” I am not kidding; he wants us to buy that.)

Cuomo the Absurd

By Mike Huckabee

Just when you think liberal reactions to Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS nomination can’t get any funnier, somehow, they manage.  Today’s belly-laugh to start off your morning: New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo railed that if Roe v. Wade is overturned, he’ll sue! 

Question: when you sue the highest court in the land…where is that case tried?

"Resist" first

By Mike Huckabee

The Labor Department reports that new applications for unemployment insurance benefits dropped by 18,000 to 214,000 in the first week of July.  Experts had predicted 225,000 new jobless claims, but instead, the number dropped to the lowest level since May, when it hit the lowest level since the 1970s.   

And yet, Congressional Democrats are still chomping at the bit to impeach President Trump because…because…well, like their protests of his Supreme Court nominee, they’ll “resist” first and fill in the blank later.

President Trump in Britain

By Mike Huckabee

I just returned from Great Britain, but President Trump is staying there through the weekend, long enough to give an interview about his disappointment in Prime Minister Theresa May’s efforts at accomplishing Brexit. Britain’s exit from the European Union was approved by voters, but it’s taking longer for Britain to leave the EU than it takes for an unemployed brother-in-law to move out of your guest room.

Like many things Trump says, the interview didn’t reveal anything that anyone paying attention didn’t already know, but it’s causing seismic tremors among European and diplomatic elites, who are as unaccustomed to plain-spoken truths as they are to WalMart wine.

Here’s a write-up about the latest skunk Trump released in a garden party just by saying what he really thinks.  That must be why most politicians never do that.

    I didn't watch the entire hearing (assuming it was covered on c span or something) but did hear an excerpt with Trey Gowdy asking the questions. And, as he seems to do, he kept asking a question when the person in the hot seat did not answer it. Strzok gets annoyed that Gowdy "interrupts" him as he gives answers that do not address the question. If you are going to go off in some weird direction, instead of wasting everyone's time, Trey Gowdy is going to interrupt to ask the question again. And, for the person who I guess is Strzok's or the FBI lawyer (or maybe it was a democrat on the committe?) to say, it's already been answered shows they aren't quite as intelligent as they think, or maybe trying to fool all those on the committee. I didn't see the interview, but wonder if he had the same "I'm better than all of you" smirk that his friend rosenstein had on his face. He was more belligerent that rosenstein.
