We know quite a bit now about the role Fusion GPS played in getting that “dossier” put together by Christopher Steele and Clinton goon Sidney Blumenthal. Paid by the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign through law firm Perkins Coie, Fusion GPS took its usual role of digging up dirt on political opponents (admittedly they had worked for some Republican politicians, too) to a whole new low, resulting in a work of fiction used to justify spying on American citizens who just happened to be associated with the Trump campaign. But how did the henchmen-for-hire at Fusion GPS come to be associated with the Hillary camp in the first place? Surely they didn’t just come out of nowhere. In the political world, alliances tend to go back many years --- especially with the Clintons.

Well, it turns out there’s a backstory --- one that involves largely the same cast of characters, then aligned with the 2012 Obama For America campaign. It appears to have involved the same tactics used by the IRS to target the Tea Party.

Andrew McCabe, beware the Ides of March!

By Mike Huckabee

In recent commentaries, I’ve made flip remarks about Andrew McCabe leaving the FBI to collect his pension, just as Lois Lerner of the IRS is collecting hers. Well, Lerner gets to keep hers, but it turns out that McCabe’s pension is very much in play.

He’s still technically employed at the FBI for a few more days --- four, to be exact, as of this writing –- but after 21 years of service could still be fired during that time and lose his benefits, valued at $1.8 million if he lives to be 83. Either way, if Inspector General Michael Horowitz has anything more to ask him before completing his report, it will have to be sooner rather than later, as he has no power to talk with anyone who is no longer working at the FBI.

Is the "Blue Wave" coming?

By Mike Huckabee

After all the hoopla, the special election for Pennsylvania's 18th District House seat ended with neither side able to declare full victory (Democrat Conor Lamb tried early on, but then, as Hillary Clinton taught us, not actually winning is no impediment to Democrats declaring themselves the winner). As of this writing, it looks as if Lamb has beaten Republican Rick Saccone by a razor-thin margin of about 600 votes, but state law will require a recount. So settle in and wait.

The Democrats and the media (pardon my redundancy) will paint this as a sure sign of the coming “blue wave” in which Americans, fed up with lower taxes, a booming economy, defeating ISIS and the return of the rule of law, will rush to the polls to put Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer back in charge of Congress. It doesn’t mean that at all. However, it is a warning sign for Republicans that if they don’t want to lose everything they’ve gained, the leadership had better turn out the vote and their voters had better turn out.

Facebook changes

By Mike Huckabee

A study of the impact of Facebook’s latest algorithm for what appears in your news feed found that it’s boosted circulation of content from liberal publishers by an average of about 2% while reducing the exposure of content from conservative publishers by about 14%. Some specific instances are even more glaring. For instance, stories from the liberal New York Daily News got over a 24% traffic boost on Facebook while exposure for stories from the conservative New York Post fell by over 11%. How does Facebook explain this? Well, they’re just emphasizing “quality news.” Why do I suspect that their definition of “quality news” is like Hillary Clinton’s definition of “quality people”: those who agree with her?

Could this have something to do with recent studies showing Facebook user growth flattening and people logging on less often and spending less time on the social media site? That’s hard to say, since this is fairly new, but I can’t imagine that shoving more leftwing propaganda down people’s throats is a winning formula. If it were, CNN and MSNBC would have higher ratings, as would the NFL, the Golden Globes and the Oscar telecast. As the saying goes, “Get ‘woke,’ go broke.”

Facebook should have realized this is what happens when you put the “Al Gore” into “algorithm.”

Stephen Hawking dies

By Mike Huckabee

The children of renowned physicist Stephen Hawking confirmed that he has died peacefully at home in Cambridge, England, at 76 this week. Hawking was not only a genius who shook the world of science with his ideas on black holes, quantum mechanics and relativity, he also became one of the most unlikely celebrities ever.

Hawking was diagnosed at 22 with motor neurone disease (ALS), which left his body twisted and wheelchair bound and robbed him of his ability to speak. But he learned to communicate using an electronic voice box, first controlled by hand and later, when that became impossible, connected to a muscle in his cheek. That robotic voice became one of the most imitated celebrity voices in the world, as Hawking balanced ground-breaking scientific work with pop culture successes, such as his bestselling book, “A Brief History of Time;” TV commercials; cameos on such shows as “Star Trek,” “The Simpsons” and “The Big Bang Theory;” and a hit movie about his early life, “The Theory of Everything.”

His politics had long been leftist, and in later years, his public statements became increasingly more alarmist. He also announced that he was an atheist, and that everything could be explained by science, not God. It’s one of the great ironies of our time that he did not believe in miracles, despite accomplishing all he did while severely paralyzed, over a life that stretched for more than five decades past the time when learned men of science (doctors) told him he had just a few years to live.

    It is sad to hear of the death of Stephen Hawking..but more sad to hear he was an atheist..he had eyes to see and couldn't see he had ears to hear but couldn't hear...how does an intelligent person become so blinded?? Like you said how he was able to do so much and so unlikely in his condition and not believe there is a God...
