I haven’t read Michael Wolffe’s new book on the 2016 Trump Presidential campaign (it's not officially out yet), but one look at the long excerpt printed in NEW YORK magazine tells me it’s quite an imaginative work of fiction. A number of people closely associated with the campaign and in the best position to know have already said as much, strongly denying statements they’re quoted as saying.

Just by paying attention to the tone of the writing, one can easily see that this is a contrived narrative dripping with negativity and cynicism, especially the theme of Trump assuming all along that he would lose. Notice how much of it is hyperbolic rhetoric, much like an attorney’s colorful summation, which as we know can be any old observation he wants to throw in with no evidence whatsoever required to back it up. Here’s just one example of the writing: “Few people who knew Trump had illusions about him. That was his appeal: he was what he was. Twinkle in his eye, larceny in his soul.”

Unexpected numbers

By Mike Huckabee

Once again, economists were caught short by “unexpected” job numbers. Except, unlike under the previous Administration, the numbers were far larger than their estimates: 250,000 new private sector jobs in December, while they predicted 190,000. Job growth was also broad-based, not just service jobs.


Religious expression in schools spelled out

By Mike Huckabee

Kudos to the Louisiana Attorney General and U.S. Rep. Mike Johnson for teaming up to create a 15-page guideline that clears up confusion about religious expression in schools. For years, liberal school administrators and atheist activists have exploited confusion over court rulings to bully students into thinking it’s somehow against the law to pray, bring a Bible to class and read it, or discuss their religious beliefs in public schools. In fact, while courts have ruled that faculty can’t lead or require those things, students maintain a fundamental First Amendment right to do all of them, and it’s not revoked by simply being on school grounds.

The irony is that opponents of religious freedom have thrown up so much confusion and so many groundless lawsuits that it should take 15 pages to spell out just 22 very clear words: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech…”


The Russia collusion narrative

By Mike Huckabee

The new movie “I Tonya” has brought the sordid tale of fallen figure skater Tonya Harding back into the spotlight. It shows the pretty awful backstory that most people didn’t know, about Harding’s abusive mother and husband, and pins the blame for the attack on rival Nancy Kerrigan largely on her husband’s pal Shawn Eckhardt. He is depicted as a laughably pitiful, self-deluded loser who constantly boasts of his high-level contacts as an international espionage expert and covert fixer while he’s actually living at home with his mother.

Well, if you’ve seen that movie, or even the trailers online, as the original “Russian collusion” narrative continues to crumble and the anti-Trump media desperately turn their hopes for bringing down Trump to the barroom ramblings of low-level campaign volunteer George Papadopolous, I dare you to read this latest examination of the narrative without thinking of the movie depiction of Shawn Eckhart.

Iranian surprise

By Mike Huckabee

You know that the public uprising in Iran against the terrorist-supporting Islamic theocracy went under-reported by the Western media until it grew so large that it couldn’t be ignored. But there is something else happening in Iran that could be helping to fuel the protests. It’s been called one of the best-kept secrets in the world: a growing movement that has gone almost completely unreported by both liberal and conservative media, and you might be shocked – or at least, pleasantly surprised – to learn about it.



Ringo Starr leads the way

By Mike Huckabee

The young British pop singer Lorde is the latest music figure to be bullied by the misguided movement started by Rogers Waters of Pink Floyd into canceling a planned concert in Israel. These rock musicians are okay with performing in nations that are host to all sorts of violence, oppression and injustice, but somehow draw the line at appearing in a tolerant democracy that happens to be run by Jews. Gee, I wish there were a good term to describe that attitude.

Well, thank goodness for Ringo Starr, who just gave us one more reason why he deserves the long-overdue knighthood he was just awarded. Click the link for details and to learn which other rock stars stood up to pressure and threats and performed for their fans in Israel.
