Today's Edition: 6 minute read
Former FBI Director James Comey, a thoroughly disingenuous piece of work, lied to the incoming President, reassuring him he wasn’t a target of the FBI in the very meeting that was set up to target him. He met with Trump not so much to offer the typical defensive briefing that every incoming President receives but to get him alone, lay that outrageous “Russian prostitute” story on him and see how he’d react. This was intended by Comey and his cohorts to be a trap. An ambush.
We know this now from the first installment of Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report, which describes a scenario in which Comey visits President-elect Trump in Trump Tower on January 6, 2017, drops that whopper of a tale from the “dossier” on him, and then --- in a prearranged move --- goes back to his waiting car to his laptop, which has already been set up on a secure hookup for a videoconference, to memorialize that meeting for “Crossfire Hurricane.”
Hurricane Dorian Update
By Mike Huckabee
If it doesn’t take a turn soon, Hurricane Dorian is on track to reach Florida by Monday (Labor Day). By then, it could strengthen to a Category 4 storm, the second-strongest, with wind gusts above 150 mph. It’s not clear yet where it will come ashore, but all of Florida’s east coast should be preparing for evacuation or bracing for impact and having 10 day’s provisions on hand, including water. And don't forget that all pets need to be safe inside, too.
If you are in the storm’s path, please take precautions and watch the weather news closely. And wherever you are, I hope you will join me in praying that the storm weakens and for the safety of all it may touch.
Declassify three documents President Trump
By Mike Huckabee
John Solomon of The Hill has spent the past year or so reminding his colleagues of what a real investigative journalist looks like, as he’s uncovered one scoop after another about the Deep State perfidy surrounding the “Russian collusion” fabrication. Now, with the secret machinations behind that finally being dragged into the sunlight, Solomon has a suggestion for President Trump that could rewrite accepted history and finally clear up a few mysteries that we’ve long been told are above our pay grade as citizens to know.
Solomon is calling on Trump to use his powers to declassify three documents from the Obama era relating to stories whose official versions have never added up. They relate to the Obama Administration’s decision to sell a fifth of our uranium supply to Russia, the decision to enter into the Iran nuclear deal, and what was really found on Hillary Clinton’s email server. At the link are some details about those three mysterious documents and what declassifying them might finally reveal.
Mr. President, inquiring minds want to know. And Americans can handle the truth, even if the media can’t.
Fabricated war story?
By Mike Huckabee
I’ve made it clear that I don’t want to chronicle every Joe Biden “gaffe,” but this one seems bigger than most. While in New Hampshire, Biden told a story about his interaction with a heroic Afghanistan war veteran. The story was very moving and very inspiring...and virtually nothing about it was true. That could be a problem considering he ended it by telling the hushed crowd, “This is the God’s truth. My word as a Biden.”
Even the Washington Post took notice, looking into the story and tracking down the origins of Biden’s various confabulations. You can read the story at the link, along with WaPo’s detective efforts to determine what, if any, of it was accurate. The paper concluded, “In the space of three minutes, Biden got the time period, the location, the heroic act, the type of medal, the military branch and the rank of the recipient wrong, as well as his own role in the ceremony.”
To anyone who tries to downplay concerns over this as partisan nitpicking, allow me to point out that if Trump did anything remotely like it, it would be called either a “LIE” or a delusion proving he’s mentally unfit for office. And Joe Biden would probably agree.
I wanted to make sure you also read these comments:
As a public service of www.MikeHuckabee.com, this song parody provides a quick primer or refresher course in the entire convoluted “Russian Collusion” yarn up to now, in a form anyone can sing along with. Lyrics and vocal are by award-winning retro jazz singer Laura Ainsworth (lauraainsworth.com), whose “day job” is writing topical humor, commentary and parody songs for radio, TV and the web.
CNN’s Don Lemon declared that Trump supporters who “lie” should be banned from CNN. Lemon said, in his unctuous way of speaking that makes it sound as if he thinks the next word out of his mouth is going to be nominated for an Academy Award, “Coming on a major network like CNN - it is a privilege, it is not a right. It has nothing to do with Freedom of Speech or Freedom of Expression. It is a privilege to come on and to be able to talk directly to the American people and if you have that privilege then you should respect the American people and the host of that show and the platform and the company, the brand enough to come on and tell the truth."
For the record: CNN employs as commentators former government officials Andrew McCabe and James Clapper. McCabe lost his job at the FBI for leaking and lying to or misleading FBI investigators on four occasions, three of them while under oath; while Clapper lied to Congress about the government’s bulk collection of telephone metadata. But they’re not “Trump supporters,” so I guess they can lie on CNN all they like.
As for Lemon himself, who was pushing the "Russian collusion" lie right up until the day before Robert Mueller’s Hindenburg-like Congressional testimony…
…I’d say that calling CNN a “major network” that shows respect for the American people by telling them the truth counts as three lies right there.
