For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

Romans 1:20

Here's who REALLY led a coup attempt, and how they did it

Preface:  The January 6 Kangaroo Kommittee may have overstepped its authority in subpoenaing the phone records of Arizona GOP chair Kelli Ward. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, who hears emergency applications from that state, has put a temporary stay on the subpoena. The Kommittee has until Friday to respond.

This subpoena was clearly a fishing expedition. “If Dr. Ward’s telephone and text message records are disclosed, congressional investigators are going to contact every person who communicated with her during and immediately after the tumult of the 2020 election,” Ward’s lawyers wrote. “That is not speculation, it is a certainty.”

Of course, the Kommittee has also subpoenaed President Trump, but after he said he'd LOVE to testify on live TV, co-chair Liz Cheney says they won’t allow that. After all, they wouldn’t want their Kommittee to be turned into a “circus,” she said. Too late for that! What they envision doing, of course, is taking the former President into a secure room, turning on their own cameras, lecturing him about “our democracy,” making accusatory speeches, and asking questions like “How long have you conspired with Vladimir Putin to declare yourself dictator?” Then they would edit the video to their hearts’ content and present it as “evidence.”

In their fevered dreams. That will not be happening.

And now, THE BIG STORY:  It’s not Trump who tried to lead a coup, but the FBI and the intel community as a whole, who worked tirelessly to derail both his candidacy and, when that didn’t work, his presidency. Emails produced for John Durham in the trial of Igor Danchenko, Christopher Steele’s primary source for the fabricated “dossier,” prove without a doubt that this is what they were doing with that piece of trash. Investigative reporters Jeff Carlson and Hans Mahnke have used these communications to ascertain the timeline for every step they took, proving that the FBI knew the Steele dossier was rancid baloney from the start but used it to build the entire Russia Hoax.  THAT was the coup attempt.

The latest revelation is that they initiated their plan early on to hide Danchenko as a “confidential human source” (CHS), out of reach of investigations that would come along later. They did this to cover their bases even before they had interviewed Danchenko. So when Danchenko admitted the material he’d passed to Steele was just “bar talk” and stories told “in jest,” they didn’t have to tell anybody. And they didn’t.

The information is in a “premium” story at THE EPOCH TIMES, so here’s the link if you’re a subscriber. (Warning: it will make you very angry.) We sort it out and summarize below.

The particular email that gives this away was buried in hundreds of unused exhibits and brought to light by an internet sleuth called “Walkafyre.” Only the subject line was made public, but that was enough.

As Carlson and Mahnke report, “The revelation...indicates that that FBI deliberately targeted 2016 presidential candidate and later President Donald Trump with claims it already knew at the time to be false.”

Their timeline of the period between the November 8, 2016, presidential election and the appointment of Mueller on May 17, 2017, “reveals that the FBI --- with the help of the Obama administration and Washington establishment figures --- executed a concerted campaign to oust a sitting President.”

FBI agent Kevin Helson sent this email to unknown (redacted) recipients on January 12, 2017. The subject line reads “Plan to convert Danchenko into CHS.” Having already learned that Steele couldn’t provide evidence for his dossier even with a $1 million incentive, they were protecting Danchenko even in advance of his interview with them, which didn’t take place till late January. As a CHS, Danchenko was shielded from any external investigations, including those of Congress. Until now, the assumption had been that Danchenko wasn’t made a CHS until later, after he was interviewed (which was bad enough).

If they’d thought the dossier was real, they would not have hidden Danchenko from investigators. On the contrary, they would have touted him endlessly as proof of Russian “collusion.”

We've organized the major plot points chronologically and will walk you through...

November 8: Trump is elected, despite the FBI’s efforts to, in Peter Strzok’s words, “stop it.”

November 9: Strzok and Page exchange cryptic texts about a meeting of their “secret society” to discuss something “election related.”

November 10: Strzok texts Page, saying, “Bill [Priestap, head of FBI counterintelligence] just sent a two hour invite to talk strategy.”

Early December: The CIA tells congressional leaders that “Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency.” So now CIA Director John Brennan is involved, more than just behind the scenes.

December 9: After the congressional briefing, Obama signs an order directing the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency (NSA) to draft an intelligence community assessment (ICA) on Russian interference in the election. Both the CIA and FBI had already had this in the works, with the FBI working to get the “dossier” into the ICA, to make it official, even though they already knew it was fake. (Note: they never inform Congress, the courts or Trump officials of the $1 million offer to Steele and his inability to provide evidence.)

December 16: Andrew McCabe personally pushes his agents to include the dossier in the ICA. When asked if it should include not just information regarding Russian interference but also allegations against candidate Trump, McCabe says to YES, include the Trump allegations, “due to concerns over possible Russian attempts to blackmail Trump.” So now Trump is personally targeted.

December 20: The FBI identifies Danchenko as the primary source for the dossier.

December 28: Director Comey makes a push to the CIA and NSA for the dossier to be included in the ICA. Comey characterizes Steele as a “credible person with a source and sub-source network in position to report on such things.” (Comey knows Steele can't verify any of it.) They agree to include a two-page summary of the dossier, thereby legitimizing it.

January 3: Outgoing AG Loretta Lynch implements new executive order greatly expanding the intel agencies’ ability to share information.

January 5: During a White House intelligence briefing on the intel assessment, Obama expresses his desire that information be withheld from the incoming Trump administration. (That’s the infamous meeting in which Comey stays behind to brief Obama on the dossier.)

January 6: Now the top intel officials brief Trump and his national security team on the salacious stories from the dossier. Reportedly, newly appointed Trump national security adviser Mike Flynn asks about Steele’s sub-sources. (Uh-oh. It’s likely this is the moment they seriously targeted Flynn.) Hours later, the briefing is leaked to the media.

(Trump, frustrated by so many leaks, had conducted a “sting” to find out who was leaking. He didn’t tell his staff about his January 6 briefing at all, so when news of it leaked, he knew it was the intel people.)

January 10: Comey testifies before Senate Intel Committee, stating that he can neither confirm nor deny an active investigation of Trump. The media go wild. The dossier is released by BUZZFEED.

January 11: The Senate Intel Committee opens its own, very politically driven investigation into Russian interference. Trump gives a press conference naming the intel community as the leakers. This says so much about Trump's presence of mind…

January 12: Agent Helson sends his email about signing up Danchenko as a CHS. Also, IG Michael Horowitz announces he’ll review the actions of the FBI in the lead-up to the 2016 election. This ties up any outside probes into the FBI’s actions for two years. Also, Mike Flynn’s call with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak is leaked to the WASHINGTON POST, which reports it as an attempt to undermine Obama’s sanctions against Russia. (The object is to get Flynn out.)

Also on January 12: The first renewal of the Carter Page warrant is approved. The FBI knows the dossier is bunk but has not informed the FISA court.

January 19: Obama’s top intel and law enforcement deputies meet to talk about Flynn’s call.

January 22: Flynn is sworn in as Trump’s national security advisor.

January 24: Comey sends “a couple of guys over” (Strzok and Pientka), as he later brags, to do the ambush interview on the unsuspecting Flynn.

End of January: Over a three-day period, Danchenko is finally interviewed and tells the FBI he never intended his wild rumors and bar talk to be included in Steele’s dossier. Again, because he was being made a CHS, this information would be shielded from investigators.

February 13: Flynn resigns. (In 2020, it’s revealed through detailed transcripts that Flynn never discussed sanctions with Kislyak.)

February 27: President George W. Bush says “we all need answers” on alleged Russia “collusion.”

March 2: New AG Jeff Sessions totally recuses himself from "Russia," without even looking into whether the inquiry is legitimate.

March 4: Trump tweets that he knows the Obama administration has been spying on his campaign.

March 6: The FBI reacts by sending McCabe, Strzok and Priestap to brief the DOJ on their Trump investigation. They mention no issues with the dossier and instead lie that it is their fully checked-out “Crown reporting.”

March 8: Comey briefs the congressional “Gang Of Eight,” who aren’t told about any issues with the dossier, either.

Month of March: Danchenko is an official CHS now, shielded from inquiry.

March 20: Comey announces that the Trump campaign is being investigated for Russian collusion.

March 21: House Intel Committee chair Devin Nunes meets with a source, then informs President Trump he believes Trump and his staff were illegally surveilled and “unmasked.” Nunes demands the FBI, CIA and NSA reveal details of this.

April 6: Following an ethics investigation being opened against him, Nunes is forced to recuse himself from the Russia collusion investigation.

April 7: The warrant to spy on Carter Page is renewed again.

May 9: Trump fires Comey; McCabe becomes acting director. Steele has a phone call with Bruce Ohr at the DOJ, expressing concern that “they will be exposed” with Comey’s firing.

May 12: Steele and Ohr exchange texts, with Ohr conveying a request from McCabe that Steele be reengaged.

May 16: Comey leaks memos to THE NEW YORK TIMES through a Columbia Law School friend. (Comey later acknowledges he did this to spark the appointment of a special counsel.)

May 17: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appoints Robert Mueller special counsel, with dossier source/fabricator Danchenko still safely hidden by the FBI.

I think we might have just given you a summary of Durham’s final report. And perhaps we can condense it even further, to five words:  THIS WAS A COUP ATTEMPT.



Fetterman follow-up

People are still talking about Tuesday’s extremely discomfiting debate performance by Pennsylvania Democrat John Fetterman, which exposed the fact that he is clearly not recovered enough from his recent stroke to serve in the Senate. While I pray he’ll make a full recovery, it can’t help that he’s being manipulated by those around him to continue a high-pressure campaign for a high-pressure job when he should be resting and getting therapy. 

One concerned neurologist who watched the debate told Fox News that most recovery in cases like his happens in the first three months, and it’s been six months, so she fears this may be about as good as it gets. Another doctor said there’s about a 23% chance of having another stroke in the year after the first one, and this can’t be helping reduce those odds.  

I was glad to see a few others in the media picking up on the argument I made yesterday that this wasn’t a debate, it was an expose of the biggest and cruelest attempt at vote fraud in history. Incredibly, many Democrats aren’t upset over the disregard for Fettermans’ health or the attempt to hide his incapacity from voters. They’re frantically spinning this story like a plate-spinner on the Ed Sullivan Show to keep the campaign going. I’ve heard every excuse from “He exceeded expectations” to “He was so brave to do that knowing his condition” to “Dr. Oz bullied him.”

For the record: I think Dr. Oz deserves praise for his kindness in pulling his punches. I always warn people thinking of getting into politics that it’s a full-contact sport, and you shouldn’t enter it if you can’t stand the sight of your own blood. Many politicians would’ve gone in for the kill, but as a highly-experienced physician, Dr. Oz understood what he was dealing with and treaded very lightly. All things considered, Fetterman’s people should be grateful that there was a doctor standing by just 10 feet away.

But worst of all are the Democrats who have no sympathy for Fetterman or outrage over the attempt to hoodwink the voters. They’re just furious that his handlers agreed to the debate instead of hiding his cognitive problems until after the election, like…well, someone else I could name. They claim it doesn’t matter how impaired he is, all he has to be able to do is cast votes for the Democrats’ agenda. Jeff Goldstein at Substack has a must-read article about this attitude, which has unfortunately become widespread in today’s politics, that having a party rubber stamp who can't think independently is a positive thing.

For these people, all that matters is getting that 51st vote to ram their radical left agenda down America’s throat. They’re so obsessed with nothing but party power that Fetterman reportedly raked in $2 million in donations after the debate from people who want to see him keep campaigning and get into the Senate (although some might have mistaken the debate for a telethon.) They don’t see Senators as representatives of the people of their states, just as representatives of the national Democratic Party, which is a perversion of the Constitution.

The Founders gave us the House to represent the wider population, and the Senate to represent the interests of the states. The Senate was created to act as a block on “the tyranny of the majority.” Each state has two Senators, regardless of size or population, so that the people of, say, Wyoming, can’t be forced to accept the crazy ideas of more populous states, like giving power to Gavin Newsom. Each state has an equal voice to represent its interests, the ultimate in “fairness.” Democrats claim to like fairness until it stands between them and power.

They want Fetterman elected because they know he will not represent the interests of Pennsylvanians. He’ll vote however Chuck Schumer tells him to, and advance the interests of the Democratic Party. It’s ironic that one of Fettermans’ main knocks on Dr. Oz is that he’s not really from Pennsylvania, when Fetterman’s own supporters admit they want him to move to Washington and vote the way the Senator from New York tells him to.

Ironically, the one issue this debate made the case for without it even being mentioned is the repeal of the 17th amendment that allowed for direct election of Senators. Before that, they were appointed by the state legislatures to make sure they represented the interests of their states, not those of their party or their own political careers in Washington. 



A big congratulations to high school football coach Joe Kennedy, who went to court to defend religious freedom when Bremerton High School in Washington State fired him in 2015 for praying after games on the 50-yard line. After finally winning his case in the Supreme Court, it was announced that an agreement has been reached to reinstate him to his job.

This is great news both for him and the student athletes he mentors. If you’d like to know more about this story, Joe was my guest on “Huckabee” in the spring. You can see that interview here:

Georgia Senate race update

Another woman has surfaced, accusing Republican Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker of paying for her to have an abortion many years ago. Like the first accuser, this one is anonymous and has no actual evidence, only this one is represented by Gloria Allred, for what that’s worth. Walker calls it a lie. And considering the latest accuser claims that coming forward (sort of) less than two weeks before the election is NOT politically-motivated, I have serious doubts about her sincerity.

Karen Townsend at has a very good report on this story and why it’s not likely to be the damaging “October Surprise” the left must hope it will be.

Part of that is due to a fundamental lack of understanding of how conservatives and Christians view people. They think we’re narrow-minded and judgmental, so if they can just tar a Republican as a sinner, we’ll abandon him. They don’t get that we believe in a faith that’s based on forgiveness and redemption. So far, they’ve shown no evidence that these accusations are true, but even if they are, we understand that people can repent and change from what they were in the distant past. 

What we do know is that Herschel Walker today is pro-life. Why would we abandon him over an unproven allegation of a past sin, when the alternative is a candidate who has already voted in lockstep with the Democrats for unrestricted abortion through the ninth month of pregnancy at taxpayer expense? They must truly believe that we’re as stupid as they think we are.

Besides, why are they trying to paint Herschel Walker as morally unfit for the Senate by alleging that he once paid for an abortion? I thought we were supposed to celebrate abortion. Have you noticed how often Democrats try to harm a Republican’s political career by accusing him or her of something that they claim to support wholeheartedly, from having an abortion to being gay?  Why, it’s almost as if their ethics were…situational.


Majority believe the transgender movement has gone too far

A new poll of voters by Summit Ministries and McLaughlin & Associates found that 65% believe the transgender movement has gone too far in pushing drugs and surgery on minors. Only 21% do not. And 57% believe the medical industry is motivated by profits in pushing these procedures, with only 24% believing they actually want to help children. Also, only 27% think children are transitioning because they feel free to question their gender, while 59% think they’re being influenced by outside forces.

Even more interesting was the demographic breakdown. Those who think the trans movement has gone too far include 56% of Hispanics, 48% of African-Americans, and even 44% of Biden voters (only 34% of Biden voters think it hasn’t gone far enough.) I’d call that “being on the wrong side of history.” These Democrat politicians had better get over their obsession with state-sanctioned surgical child abuse before the voters transition them to the private sector and they have to get real jobs for the first time in their lives.

    Re: the transgender movement - I type office notes for a plastic surgeon who does "top surgery" (breast removal) on girls who want to be guys and it is a sickening trend. There's no question that alot of this comes from peer pressure. Teenage girls and young women are some of the flakiest creatures on earth who are easily swayed by the loud mouths who lead their clique and if they want to belong, they go along. I read a good article on this phenomenon that explained most of these girls are white and have taken the antiracist garbage to heart so they think the only way to assuage their "white guilt" is to become a victim themselves. If they go transgender, voila - they become one of the few instead of the many. Problem solved, at least they think so. They have no conception of the numerous, awful consequences because all they see is that lovely "victim" label they've been striving for ever since they learned in school that they were white supremacists. I can't imagine how much these girls have screwed up their lives, but one thing's for sure - the medical profession is at least as responsible for this tragedy as the left.

    Can you say, "pubic hair on a can of soda?" Remember that? When Anita Hill tried to tar and feather Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, as a sexual harasser, before his nomination and approval to the US Supreme Court ? This is the same thing but with another Black Conservative Christian, Hershel Walker, and the whole abortion narrative this time, instead of sexual harassment. The Dems. CANNOT stand it that any Black Americans are Conservative Republican Christians and have the same ideologies as the GOP Conservatives. It drives the far-left radical Democrats and Independents just nuts! Worse than TDS I think. And there are more and more Black Americans who are choosing GOP Conservative beliefs over the far-right radicals! God is with us and for us, always. And you are right, you would think the Democrats would be glad he chose to pay for an abortion, for a women's reproductive rights paid for by a man, especially a black man for a white woman, was she white? Don't know and it doesn't matter. The point is, the elitist liberal radical Democrats are such hypocrites, except they can't see it, but we can.

    As more and more information about the FBI and the Intel community's involvement with trying to discredit President Trump and congressional Democrats jumping on the bandwagon, does not speak well of the integrity of these organizations, the leaders, and in some cases the agents. The oath they took to uphold the Constitution when they became agents means nothing to them. I wonder how far back this cancer goes. Back to JFK's Assassination??

    The corrupt Democrats are throwing everything onto the wall and nothing is sticking to effect the results. They only way can win is to cheat and cheat. I predict that when the dust has settled from 8 November 2022, the Democrats look around and see the results of their cheating has resulted in them calling and blaming everything on SENILE JOE and his inept Administration.

    I don't think there is dispute that the POTUS has the authority to declassify documents, but surely there is a process, and if not there needs to be. To declassify in secret is reckless at minimum, exposing our nation, its allies, and its foreign human assets to mortal risk.
    Perhaps you can comment on how such a process should be codified.

    I can only hope the presidents support for the the transitions of children's sex is driving away potential voters that still have a moral conscience to not abuse the children while they develop and mature till they turn 25. I am not in favor of indocritnation to children about Gay although don't bother me I won't bother you I don't favor the Trans movement I don't want the children involved in this unnatural transition let them make a decision when they become more mature and accountable to themselves. People will figure it out. People stay with nature and the way life is arranged life doesn't have to get any stranger than it is keep it simple; her him Mr Mrs Mom Dad and God and the 10 commandments what do you have to lose?

    20 years ago Donald Trump was pro Abortion. He has turned out to be the most pro Life President we ever had bar none. Ronald Reagan (God rest him) talked the talk but Trump (God bless him) has walked the walk and had the guts to nominate and fight for the three SCOTUS Justices that kicked t Roe v Wade to the curb.

    VP Joseph R. Biden, as President of the Senate, whoever was the President Pro Tem of the Senate, the late Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, as Speaker of the House, and the self-proclaimed Constitutional Scholar, B.H. Obama all should have seen that this was, in fact, a Senate-originated tax bill and stopped it. It COULD have been resubmitted in the House and gained legitimacy, but they were all so over-eager to push it through that they either disregarded their oaths of office, or were so incompetent as to not recognize the reality or what they were doing. In either case, they should be stripped of all offices and emoluments and forbidden from ever holding federal office again.
    A study of the legislative history of PPACA (Obamacare) in the Congressional Record shows that everything in it, except some boiler-plate phrasing which includes the House Bill number, originated in the Senate, using an “amendment in the nature of a substitute,” colloquially known as “gut and replace”. This is the Senate's way of thumbing its nose at Article I, Section 7, First Paragraph. On November 19, 2009, SA 2786 was introduced by Harry Reid, et al, to “Strike all after the enacting clause and insert the following:” in HR 3590, at which point the “Service Members Home Ownership Tax Act of 2009” became the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.”
    Further study of the legislative history of this Act indicates that there were NO amendments subsequently made by the House. This means that, though this DELIBERATE MISUSE of the Senate’s amendment process, it carried a House bill number even though the entire operative text of the bill ORIGINATED in the Senate. This interpretation of the Senate’s ability to propose amendments to House bills leads to the conclusion that the first paragraph of Article I, Section 7 of the United States Constitution poses no limitations whatever on the Senate’s ability to originate “Bills for raising Revenue,” since they can use it to highjack a House bill to create their own bills to impose taxes at the whim of the leaders of the Senate. It also allowed the “substitute” bill to bypass many of the committee hearings, etc., that would have normally been used in both houses to evaluate a NEW bill. The subsequent passage by the House and signature by the President show that no one in Congress wants to give up this chicanery. To claim otherwise strains credulity past the breaking point. If it is allowed to stand, there is no actual limit on the Senate’s originating “Bills for raising Revenue” as forbidden by the Constitution. I cannot believe that the authors of the Constitution contemplated that kind of abuse of the Constitution by those who have sworn an oath to uphold and defend it.
    I urge that the Honorable Supreme Court of the United States consider this argument against PPACA at its earliest opportunity, and to find that it is wholly Unconstitutional, and since it lacks a severability clause, the entire law be declared null and void. In conjunction with this, the “gut and replace” process should also be declared unlawful – for both Houses. The Senate is entitled to create any bill authorized it by the Constitution; they can even try to convince their colleagues in the House to produce a bill to their liking, but this kind of trickery must not be allowed.
    When PPACA is voided, along with it all its enabling rules, regulations, etc., depending on it for their existence should also be declared inoperative as they will lack the foundation on which they are built.
    Certainly this will result in some chaos and uncertainty, but sometimes that is the natural, even desirable result of change. There have been other decisions in the past that have caused a certain amount of upheaval in our society, but we have overcome those problems and become a stronger country for going through those difficulties. I have in mind a number of occasions of the past – Scott v. Sandford, its reversal by the Civil Rights Act of 1866; Prohibition, Brown v. Board of Education, -- I’m sure there are others but I am not a legal scholar.
    PPACA is not just controversial, or (at least in the opinion of some) bad law, it is Unconstitutional and must be declared void, along with any subsequent Acts, etc., that depend on it for their existence. Any resulting inconvenience and/or chaos must fall upon the shoulders of those who chose to use a highly questionable shortcut to push a bill into law without following proper procedures and deliberation.
    When Ms. Pelosi allowed this bill to come to the floor of the House after the Senate’s “amendment”, she allowed – even encouraged – the entire Democrat contingent in the House to violate their oaths of office by passing an Unconstitutional piece of legislation. The Speaker should take care not to allow such to come to a vote – but of course, in addition to being BHO’s signature legislation, it is also the “high point” of her tenure as Speaker. When will she apologize for not only violating her oath of office, but inducing over half of the House to do so?
    If you take a sheep, eviscerate it, remove the fleece, and drape it over a wolf, you no longer have a sheep, you have a wolf in sheep‘s clothing. “Gut and replace” is exactly this.
    I suggest that the collusion of Biden, Reid, Pelosi, and Obama in perpetrating this blatant violation of the Constitution and violation of their oaths of office is ample cause to move for the retroactive impeachment of all of them, retroactively if necessary, to include forfeiture or ALL future entitlements such as paid medical insurance, pensions, etc., and blocking them from holdin any future elected OR appointed position in the federal government.
