One thing today’s most prominent liberals have in common is a sense of self-regard far out of proportion to reality. Maybe it comes from having attended at least 16 years of school where the #1 goal wasn’t learning to think but instilling self-esteem. They came out with an unshakable belief that they are right about everything (you’ll often hear them wonder why they keep losing elections when they’re “on the right side of all the issues”), which leads many of them to assume that anyone who disagrees with them must be either evil or stupid. It’s a perilous attitude because it constantly sets them up for a fall due to underestimating their opponents. And there’s no one they’ve underestimated to greater agony than Donald Trump.

Time and again, the anti-Trump legions have allowed something Trump said to bait them into running around screaming like their hair was on fire, and their overreactions ultimately made them look foolish. Now, it’s beginning to appear that Trump’s tweet about how James Comey had better hope there are no tapes of their conversations might have been just another case of him deliberately waving a red flag to head-fake his bull-headed opponents. Check out this story: the Wall Street Journal demanded that the Secret Service provide any information on tapes of White House conversations. Their response: they have no records that any such tapes exist. Trump even teased the media again last Friday when he said he’ll explain that tweet soon and “you’re going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer.”

Could it be that the answer is that he was simply making sure that when Comey went public, he had to worry that if he didn’t tell the truth, he’d be exposed; so that when he testified before the Senate, he was forced to admit that he had told Trump three times that he wasn’t under investigation and that he’d leaked that memo about their conversation to the press himself? And if you go back and look at Trump’s tweet, did he SAY there were tapes? No. He merely said that Comey had better “hope” there are no tapes. The lesson, and it also applies to all the Democrats salivating for any reason to try to impeach Trump on obstruction charges: Saying you “hope” for something isn’t the same thing as confirming something. You’d think that people who twice elected a President just on a vague promise of “hope” would at least know what the word means.

    Dear Mike Huckabee,
    Thank you for keeping us informed. I trust you with information.
    Sure wish the Republicans would get behind Trump all the way.
    John McCain needs to retire..
    Sincerely, Kay Womack

    Dear Governor Huckabee: Does anyone have any idea how much it is costing us tax payers for these rediculious special investigations that seem to have no end, all in an attemp to have President Trump removed from the office for which he was elected? At what point do we say enough is enough, and send the DNC the bill? And how can you begin to talk to any child about "respect" after seeing any of this _____ on TV or their iPhone? I really appreciate receiving your newsletter every day. An excellent source of truth.

    Mike,

    Darrel B. Couch from Little Rock here. Home of Trailer Trash on Stilts.

    HRH HRC keeps providing all of the excuses why she lost the election. My answer is - God opened the eyes of enough people in the right places to see and understand Hilliaries evil, wicked, and illegal / criminal deeds, that they voted "To Make America Great Again". In my book, my story about why we got Obama is titled "Fear Not". The basic theme is, God gave us a wake up call. Several references came from the book of Daniel.

    Thank you for speaking words I would write if I had better writing skills. None of this madness makes any sense. We have a loving, close family but I grieve and am saddened that 2 families are Liberal and one of them is typical progressive with mean thoughts. Of course they cannot articulate what their agenda is or a solution to the problem. So we don't talk politics. Thank you for all you are doing by writing these posts. I have given to the cause but am on a fixed income so giving is sporadic. Wish I could do more.
