Turns out, when I said that I –- for once –- actually agreed with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on something, I was in some extremely good company. Here is an ABSOLUTE MUST-MUST-READ article by Monica Showalter saying just what we’ve been saying here, only in stronger language and with some new information.

Did you know that Manafort is now in a wheelchair? That Rikers has no air conditioning (or even ice water) and that at least one prisoner has died there during a heat wave? That Alan Dershowitz quotes a judge saying that this move is about pressuring Manafort to cooperate in taking down Trump on unrelated real estate cases? That, ironically, this treatment of Manafort echoes what happened in Russia to a man named Sergei Magnitsky, whose death in prison led to sanctions being placed on Russia through the passage in 2012 of the Magnitsky Act?

If Manafort is transferred to Rikers, it will make him, in effect, a political prisoner. Putin must love this. Gosh, the Chinese, too.

Deep State: First, the attempted coup. Now, the political prisoner ...

    When our country’s legal community commits a criminal act like putting this man in Rikers, we are all about to lose our freedom!????????

    If the claims of no AC and ice water are true then NY needs to be reviewed for prison reform. NY residents where is your humanitarian compassion? AOC is this your jurisdiction? More importantly why is Mr. Manafort being made an example of what happens when you have unscrupulous dealings with Ukrainian oligarchs? How is it John Kerry and Joe Biden’s sons did the same and perhaps more under handed bribe taking and we hear only crickets? Lady justice is peaking out from her blindfold.

    I have never seen anything like the democRATs' crusade against this president in my 72.5 years on this planet. Their unwillingness to even look at doing the jobs they were elected to do in their rabid campaign to unseat the duly elected president should bother every citizen of this country.

    Mass murderers aren’t treated the way Manafort is being treated. This is absolutely abuse of power and should be investigated. It is cruel and unusual punishment.

    Brother Huckabee. The best defense is a good offense. Have Pastor Carl Gallups and the former commander of Sheriff Joe's Cold Case Posse Mike Zullo on your show to air the facts--the truth--the REAL NEWS regarding the investigation into Obama's eligibility or lack thereof to ever have been the legal sitting president of the United States.

    Please review Pastor Carl Gallups' riveting mini-documentary 'Illegal Obama Propped-Up by Congress' in which he highlights no less than 8 attempts that were made to subvert the Article II natural born citizen clause of the Constitution.

    Also, Atty. Herb Titus has a most informative video on the legal meaning of the term 'natural born citizen' that should be examined as the Left will re-define anything to conveniently mean what they want it to mean at any given time and place.

    Please consider that US Army surgeon and then Lt. Col. Terrance Lakin was court-martialed, stripped of his rank, dishonorably discharged, and imprisoned in military prison--though ostensibly for missing a troop movement but undeniably for having requested authentication that his orders to re-deploy to a combat theater of operations did in fact originate from a legal source--from a legal and legitimate commander-in-chief of the armed forces.

    Also, please bring up the fact--I say again: THE FACT--that Obama did publicize himself for some 16 years before ever first running for the office of POTUS as having been born in what today is called Kenya. Obama's private literary agent and publicist, Acton & Dystel, like all publicists simply have their clients fill out biographical data forms from which they glean what it is that they decide they will run with and then they have their clients review what they come up with and sign off on it. I'm the guy who called in some years ago and explained this to you on the radio. SIXTEEN YEARS BROTHER HUCKABEE!

    We need to retroactively abrogate both of Obama's illegal occupations of the presidency as well as everything that the Manchurian Muslim from Mombasa and those complicit with him accomplished in the commission of their crimes.

    Your humble servant in the risen Lord and Christ Jesus of the Bible, chris Farrell
    p.s. Please say 'Hello' to your beautiful daughter Sarah and Dan Scavino if you see him. Sincerely, Chris Farrell (a.k.a. Legionnaire James Foster; 1er R.E.C. 2em Esc., 1er Plt.--deserte…, but that's another story! :) )

    That there are those in our country who would actually support a decision such as this is the absolute tragedy of the depth of hatred that is spreading within our country. Have we not treated our war prisoners from previous times much better than this?!! It is time for all of us to wake up to what is happening within our government...we are very close to the dangerous edge destroying our country from within!

  • Nancy Miller

    It is absolutely outrageous to consider sending Manafort to Rikkers or any other prison than where he is. We cannot allow a judge to punish him further than he has been. This is anti-Trump, period. Has nothing to do with his behavior.

    Using a disabled person in such a fashion is reprehensible. I suppose the Democrats next planned step will be to euthanize the man.

  • Natalie Sharp

    It’s the Judicial System that’s the criminal not Manafort who’s a white collar criminal. Seriously, our political system is nothing more than a “Bully”. It’s time for Barr to find all of the skeletons of the crooked and release their names and the Democrats feel the heat!! Sad country we are living in attempting to bring down the first President who actually does good.

    Those responsible for this should be charged with a Human Rights violation! DOJ needs to handle this miscarriage of justice.
