A few years ago, inspired by my book “A Simple Christmas,” I asked listeners of my radio show to share their favorite family Christmas memories. Today’s story shows us that Dr. Seuss was right: Christmas is not something that comes from a store. Christmas means a whole lot more.

Tina from California wrote to me that she was a struggling single mom for many years. She managed to keep a roof over her daughter and son's heads. But there was no money for the Christmas extravagances many families enjoy. They had to be creative and "make do."

Instead of buying cards, they'd call relatives and sing carols to them over the phone.

The Fighting Bennetts

By Mike Huckabee

Today’s Huck’s Hero and Heroine Award is a father-and-daughter matched set, presented to retired firefighter and World War II Pacific theater veteran Frederick Bennett and his daughter Mary, from West Allis, Wisconsin.  When a burglar broke into their house and demanded the 95-year-old veteran’s wallet on a threat to kill him and his dog, he quickly discovered that he’d picked the wrong victim.  He didn’t scare Mr. Bennett, he just made him mad.  Bennett grabbed the thug and wrestled him to the ground.  He managed to break free and flee, but Bennett’s daughter Mary took off after him, yelling to neighbors to call the police as she chased him barefoot through 12 yards and over two fences.  She finally nabbed him when he got his leg caught on a fence and held him until police arrived.  He sniveled, “I’m sorry,” but she said, “Sorry doesn’t cut it.”  So what possessed her to do that?  She said, “It was just reflexes.   I guess it rubbed off from my father.” 

So if your kids ever ask how America won World War II, just show them this story.  In the meantime, click on it yourself for more details, and to see a video with the Fighting Bennetts.



UFO hunters

By Mike Huckabee

The New York Times reported this month that $22 million of our tax money was spent on a secret program to study the potential threat from UFOs.  If you guessed that it was allocated by Harry Reid and mostly went to a billionaire friend of Harry Reid’s, then I assume you didn’t just beam in from Alpha Centuri.


Replacing Al Franken

By Mike Huckabee

If you wonder why so many Democrats had no qualms about throwing Al Franken under the bus, note that Minnesota has a Democratic governor who has already appointed an equally liberal replacement: state Lt. Gov. Tina Smith.  Smith is also the former public policy vice president at Planned Parenthood for Minnesota and the Dakotas, meaning that majority pro-life Minnesotans are now “represented” by a professional defender of America’s largest abortion provider.  

Somehow, I can’t help wondering if their moral stance on this issue would have been quite so strong if the accused’s replacement would’ve been picked by a Republican governor.  But I guess we’ll never know how Democrats would react if someone in their party who was really powerful were accused of multiple sexual abuses.

Dr. David Samadi:  Solving the opioids crisis begins with all of us

By Mike Huckabee

No matter what corner of the United States you may reside in, the opioid epidemic also resides. This epidemic’s vise-like grip shows few signs of letting go as it casts its shadow across communities, large and small. Just recently, a report from the National Vital Statistics System, Mortality in the United States, 2016, sobered us into the reality of what opioids have done to our nation - lowering the life expectancy rate of U.S. citizens for the second year in a row. Every day there are 100 opioid-related deaths in the U.S. – another disturbing statistic from the report.

How do we begin to solve this?

As a nation, how do we break this epidemic? What can be done to help those who are in pain but without leading them down a path of addiction?



ISIS all but stamped out

By Mike Huckabee

I know the media don’t consider this a “real” news story, like how many Diet Cokes Trump drinks or whether Omarosa left the White House quietly or not, but while nobody was looking, ISIS has been virtually stamped out 11 months into Trump’s presidency.  While they still have random bands of idiot followers hiding here and there in the desert and some deluded fanboys on the Internet, their widespread “caliphate” has been wrested away from them.  And here is just one of the happy results you probably won’t hear about on the evening newscasts.

    Wow, if the man was 95 the daughter had to be up in years too. What an incredible feat to do at her age. I guess when you get mad enough age is apparently not a factor.

    Now as concerns all the money spent by Harry Reid on UFO's. He was like an 'alien being' in the Senate. He certainly was not one of us - the American people. Now he is back in his State of Nevada where there is plenty of dark night sky to spot what he spent our money on. Get your telescope out, Harry.
