Sometimes our readers have the most wonderful ideas. Last week we received one from Jeanne W:

“I wonder why no one has considered demanding [Nancy] Pelosi’s texts/records of her calls and communications during January leading up to the ‘riot’ on the 6th. I fully believe she is behind it; she made it very obvious that she hated President Trump and would do anything to get rid of him and keep him from running for any office again…I want to see the TRUTH come out on what really happened that day and justice served to the guilty parties. Keep up the good work, Mike, and thanks again for keeping us informed!”

Calling for texts and call records of Pelosi and her cohorts --- I would say for all of January --- is a fabulous idea. If I were one of those being threatened with subpoenas, my response would be, “Why, Madame Speaker, I’ll be happy to submit all this information voluntarily, no subpoena needed, but under one condition. You, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler must do the same. Let’s see what YOU were talking about regarding the January 6 rally. Deal?”

Whether Democrats were working behind the scenes and even infiltrating the rally to maximize the impact of the Capitol Hill security breach is still an open question. We can’t prove it, but there’s evidence to suggest it.

“Now hold on!” Pelosi might say. “No bargaining! The commission has subpoena power, period, and you don’t, so just shut up and hand over your records.” Um, Nancy, YOU hold on. This might not be a legitimate commission at all, and if so it has no subpoena power. As superlawyer Margot Cleveland noted in her December 10 column, Trump’s former chief of staff Mark Meadows has filed a federal complaint against the Select Committee as well as the individual committee members, alleging the subpoenas are invalid, most importantly because they were not issued by a “duly authorized” commission.”

Section 2(a) of House Resolution 503, which created the commission, requires Speaker Pelosi to “appoint 13 members to the Select Committee, 5 of whom shall be appointed after consultation with the minority leader.” But Pelosi appointed only 9 members, and only 2 of these are Republicans (the worst anti-Trumpers she could find; more about them below). “None of these members was appointed from the selection of five GOP congressmen put forth by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy,” Meadows’ lawsuit states. The commission was never properly constituted. (Once again, the Democrats fail to comply with their own rules.) Because of this, it says, the commission lacks authority to act under Resolution 503. Translation: NO SUBPOENAS.

Pelosi’s refusal to seat any of McCarthy’s choices shows what a political ploy this “investigation” is. “Once in focus,” Cleveland writes, “one can see there is a strong interest in preserving executive privilege, and none in pushing a partisan dog-and-pony show trial."

Recall that Meadows has been informed by the chairman of the commission, Mississippi Democrat Bennie Thompson, that they would pursue criminal contempt charges against him. Here’s another write-up on Meadows’ lawsuit, by Joel B. Pollak for Breitbart.

Meadows has already turned over some material to this commission, including a PowerPoint presentation that is the left’s Obsession Of The Day. They say it’s the “smoking gun” showing Trump’s inner circle was planning to take over Washington. Au contraire. Some apparently examined the idea of declaring a national emergency because they suspected the election REALLY HAD been interfered with. But, obviously, this idea went nowhere. There is no evidence Trump’s legal advisors, let alone Trump himself, even saw this, let alone might have acted on it. Where did it even come from? We don’t know.

To give you an idea of how the left is blowing this up, here’s the (blatantly slanted) report from The Guardian.

Moving on...It’s been gratifying to hear from so many readers who want to send mail to the detainees. We included a link in our story of December 11 to a website that gave contact information for them. Here it is again, for the Patriot Freedom Project.

Important: We’ve heard from a few readers that when they tried to post this link on Facebook, they were blocked. Please let us know if this happens!

Finally, this from Gloria Jean B:

“Can we request Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham start talking about the injustice being done to the Jan. 6th prisoners. Maybe their names could be announced every night. We have to do more than send cards. I have been praying for these people for months. This is an example of Nazi Germany! We have to help these people now!!”

Thanks for writing, Gloria. Some at FOX News have been paying attention, especially Carlson, who produced a provocative show for FOX Nation called “Patriot Purge.”

You can stream it with a free trial membership to Fox Nation.

Some at FOX, notably Stephen Hayes and Jonah Goldberg, have even left the channel over this show, saying it’s irresponsible and promotes the conspiracy theory of a “false flag” operation on Capitol Hill. Now, we can’t say definitively that the breach was or wasn’t “helped” by FBI agents infiltrating pro-Trump groups, but viciously anti-Trump Illinois “GOP” congressman Adam Kinzinger has called the show “pure evil,” which makes me think it must be pretty darn good. Wyoming anti-Trump congresswoman Liz Cheney hated it, too. Personally, I’d wear those critiques as badges of honor.

By the way, Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger are the two “Republican” members of Congress appointed by Nancy Pelosi to the January 6 commission. She even made Cheney the co-chair.

One thing I’d love to see FOX News report on: the difference in how the January 6 “domestic terrorists” and the REAL terrorists detained at Gitmo have been treated by the legal profession. As Allison Schuster reported in The Federalist a couple of months ago, at least 50 high-powered law firms went out of their way to defend actual Gitmo terrorists –- pro bono –- but have ignored the plight of the Americans being held without bail on charges related to January 6. We’ve learned that most of these detainees have not been allowed to see their lawyers; maybe they don’t HAVE lawyers. This piece is a must-read.

The January 6 commission tries to paint the events of that day as an “insurrection,” but absolutely NO ONE has been charged with insurrection. For when you have time –- and to cleanse your palate after that last story –- I’ll leave you with a transcript of the lecture given by Roger Kimball in September at Hillsdale College. It superbly summarizes not one but two hoaxes: the one about Trump-Russia “collusion” and the one about “insurrection.”

    The thing I find most interesting is that not one member of Congress has asked "What did we do to upset American citizens to react like this.?"

    SAD where we are right now in this country and those who take over an desert their party like Liz and Kinziner why is he there when he is not running again. Who was the one guy all over inciting the march and the rioting he was never arrested WHY NOT? WHO exactly is he and who is backing him. That the few rioters continue in a prison why. No weapons even noted per Wray FBI in Congress. Just the one killing that someone said the security who shot this woman who was military and she had no weapons, this security was Liz Cheneys? Is this a lie or set up what is this whole story? Afraid at times Fox is silent not sure why? If not for Tucker not much to be said? No one talks of the cities that were rioted, looted and still looted, burned , killings etc? WHY? Yet they push this Jan 6th that Trump wanted this and kept it going by not sending in National Guard. What happened that night in front of the White House as many pushed to try to bust into the White House and CIA protected where was DC police? Not a nice night but ignored. So much here that smells and is being set up by those in the JD and why is Congress silent even the GOP group.? No doubt many Republicans did not want what Trump was doing like jobs back again from China and elsewhere . WHY? PROFITS. NO I do not want TRUMP back in for the liberal to have someone to daily try to go after good or bad. TRUMP was doing a lot of good too good for too many super rich ? They paid bucks to keep out the Conservatives and shut down free speech like Facebook just one per Zuck who gave they say $400 million to elect this puppet who is many times lost? SAD and WHY?

    Anyone expecting justice for all and the truth from any main stream media outlet is in for a long wait. The bureaucrats "appointed" to protect our rights and freedoms are the same criminals who work diligently to destroy America and it's legal citizens. And we pay for it. They will stop at nothing, as we have witnessed for years, to enslave us all.

    Former Police Chief Officer Steven Sund, who resigned his post shortly after the deadly assault, told a joint Senate panel investigating the Jan. 6 riots that Pelosi demanded his resignation “without a full understanding of what we prepared for.” Sund tried to warn his superiors of a possible riot and asked them several times, several days before Jan. 6, to have the National Guard there. At 1:10 pm that day (According to USA Today), Rioters begin grappling with police on the Capitol steps. At 3:34 pm Ashley Babbitt was shot. At 3:51 pm The District of Columbia National Guard, about 1,100 troops, is mobilized to support local law enforcement. Meanwhile, In a tweeted video lasting just over a minute, Trump says, in part: “I know your pain. I know you’re hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election and everyone knows it, especially the other side. But you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order. ... So go home. We love you, you’re very special. ... I know how you feel. But go home and go home in peace.” Some of Trump's tweets addressing the riot were deleted. Twitter bans the president from tweeting for 12 hours. Twitter first froze the tweets and wouldn't allow comments or retweets, then the ban was imposed.
    (Regarding those who died): ... The other three who perished that day were Benjamin Phillips, 50, from Ringtown, Pennsylvania; Kevin Greeson, 55, from Athens, Alabama; and Rosanne Boyland, 34, from Kennesaw, Georgia. Contee said Thursday all three died on Capitol grounds, but he didn't specify how. (They fail to mention that one had a stroke and the other a heart attack that caused their deaths.) (Those two literally died for their country.) One widow said her husband had insisted on going even though he knew he had high BP. Fast Forward: When the guards finally had time to rest, they put them in an unheated parking structure where they slept on the cement. According to POLITICO: One unit, which had been resting in the Dirksen Senate Office building, was abruptly told to vacate the facility on Thursday, according to one Guardsman. The group was forced to rest in a nearby parking garage without internet reception, with just one electrical outlet, and one bathroom with two stalls for 5,000 troops, the person said. Temperatures in Washington were in the low 40s by nightfall.

    “Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” the Guardsman said.

    For me, it’s not an assumption that the far left, completely unhinged radicals instigated the January 6 atrocity.
    They stole our Election and have never been arrested for Treason, they were responsible for the Russian collusion hoax, they are now operating at warp speed to finish the destruction of America…. This was an easy win for the DC terrorists (aka Democrats and RINOs.

    Very good job, Governor Huckabee! Thank you for the effort you put into getting it right by posting the web sites to keep us accurately informed. I can't imagine how quickly we have and are losing control, but that we did. All those who are writing our educational material need to be examined far more in depth than ever before; to see how closely they are following Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals; A Pragmatic Primer." (1971). Thanks again, keep up the good work and God bless you.

    For a scary, informative read on how a "democratic" country can turn into a genocidal tyranny, read Bonhoeffer, by Metaxas, published in 2010. When videos exposed the harvesting of aborted babies by Planned Parenthood, our nation barely shrugged. I read the book to see if there were any similarities to Germany and their acceptance of Hitler. It's chilling how easy it is for a government to turn to oppression. In 2015 I heard politicians speak out at rallies condemning the practice, but they failed to follow through in the legislative chambers (for the most part). Things have progressed from there.
