This week, I’m sharing family stories inspired by my book "A Simple Christmas" and sent to me a few years ago by my radio listeners. Warning: today’s is not for the weak of stomach.

One thing everyone loves about the holidays is all the great foods we indulge in only once a year. Every family has its special dishes that simply must be on the table, from oyster dressing to yams with tiny marshmallows. But sometimes, they don’t make for a great combination, on the plate or in your stomach.

Kevin from Maryland wrote me that he grew up in a Norwegian family that always served the notorious fish dish, lutefisk, which he jokingly called, “the piece of Cod that passes all understanding." (The recipe involves soaking a piece of cod fish in lye for three days. Seriously.)

Bob Corker sympathizes

By Mike Huckabee

Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker made news this past year for feuding with President Trump, but he says he now has a newfound empathy for him after discovering that the “fake news” Trump complains about is a real problem, and it’s very frustrating and distracting when the press aims it at you.



Rosie O'Donnell's Twitter feed

By Mike Huckabee

I try to ignore Rosie O’Donnell’s Twitter feed, what with all the more uplifting and enlightening things to read, like manuals on how to assemble a barbecue grill in Chinese.  But someone in the DOJ might want to take a look at her latest Tweet storm because it seems to include a serious and repeated attempt to kill the tax reform bill by offering a $2 million bribe to Senators, a violation of federal law that carries a punishment of up to $12 million in fines and/or up to 15 years in federal prison.   


Wild stories from North Korea

By Mike Huckabee

A defector from the North Korean Army is telling some frightening stories.  He claims upper leaders of North Korea’s military know they can’t survive a conventional war with an enemy like America.  So Kim Jong Un has been breeding a secret army of brainwashed soldiers completely devoted to him, who are willing to launch suicide missions carrying suitcase nukes.  He also claims he was beaten at least once a day for three years before becoming a captain, at which point he began ordering the beatings.  He says this regimen brainwashes soldiers and makes sure they never even hear the concept of human rights. 

These are the type of stories you might dismiss as wild spy novel stuff, except that it involves Kim Jong Un.  Plus it comes straight from someone who spent eight years in the North Korean Army before defecting.

Deeply Christian actor speaks out

By Mike Huckabee

I don’t link to too many interviews with Hollywood actors, but here’s one that’s genuinely worthwhile.  Atticus Shaffer is the 19-year-old star of “The Middle,” where he plays the quirky youngest kid, Brick.  He also suffers in real life from Osteogenesis imperfecta, a congenital condition that impedes growth and causes fragile bones.  But he hasn’t let his health issues keep him from working hard and succeeding at his career, any more than he lets the industry bias against people of faith keep him from speaking out on his deeply-held Christian beliefs.  In a new interview, Shaffer talks about his own experiences and offers advice for other performers on how to proclaim and defend their faith without playing into the negative stereotypes of believers so prevalent in Hollywood. 



Greatest Christmas carol ever

By Mike Huckabee

Something guaranteed to get  you into a Christmas mood: a BBC poll of choir masters chose “In The Bleak Midwinter” as the greatest Christmas carol of all time.
