As if there weren’t enough issues to mobilize voters on both sides in the upcoming election, Thursday’s news brought two more.

For Republicans, a vast caravan of Central Americans, up to 4,000 strong, is heading northward with the intention of crossing the US border illegally.  President Trump is threatening to send the military and close the border if Mexico doesn’t stop the caravan.  Trump says this is the result of Democrats stonewalling (ironically) all his efforts to impose control on America’s borders, and their intention to impose open borders, abolish ICE and repeal immigration laws if they are elected.

On the other side, Indiana petitioned the Supreme Court to hear an appeal of a ruling that struck down the state’s limits on abortion as unconstitutional.  The law, signed by then-Gov. Mike Pence in 2012, banned selective abortions based on sex, race or ability of the unborn child. Democrats who were willing to do anything – and when they said “anything,” they meant ANYTHING – to stop Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed out of fear that he would support the weakening of Roe v. Wade and abortion supporters will certainly be trumpeting this story to scare their voters to the polls.

So the choice is clear: if you want the borders to be secure and existing immigration laws passed by bipartisan Congressional votes to be enforced, vote Republican. If you want to allow the unfettered killing of children in the womb because of their race, gender or disability, vote Democrat.   

Wow, when you put it that way, the choice really IS clear!

    Thank you for putting the blatant facts in front of the American people and for your streaming show. It's a sad state for our country but I pray that the Lord's will to be done.

    Good Afternoon Governor Huckabee. First President Trump needs to shut down the border now. Mexico needs to feel the pain of the border shut down. No planes, No trains, no buses, no body comes in the country even if they live in Mexico and work here. Shut down the border and all the money going back and forth. The President and Governors of Mexico will send them all back to get the borders re opened and trade back on track. My son is a Democrat who supports abortion. He argues all the time until I bring up the ultimate stance on personal responsibility. If you do not want to be a Dad, or make your girlfriend a Mom then guess what do not have sex until after you get married. If you do not have sex then there is no need for an abortion. There was only immaculate conception and you are not the second coming. When I address his argument that way he walks away because these young people still do not get that your actions and decisions have consequences good and bad. Get good grades you can go to a great college. Choose to quit school because you think you know more than your teachers suffer those consequences. My favorite thing I heard from a teenager who quit high school because he was sick and tired of teachers and other people telling him what to do and when. It was like prison. I laughed out loud when he said it. I looked at him and I told him, welcome to the real world. There are going to be people telling you what to do for the rest of your life. Your boss, your parents, your spouse, your friends, and the government. He got very quiet and said nothing else.......No response. Then I added if this country goes socialist you will have given up your voice and you will have to obey the government no matter what. He did not like that but believes the Democrats are right......jeez luis........

    I am so thankful our country has someone like you watching out for us! You are America's conscience & voice of reason. No matter what may be going on around America, you are the one who puts it all in perspective for me whenever I am in fear of those within these United States of America who seek to destroy our way of life & our values, who wish to cause harm to We the People, and the list of their destructive ways goes on. You are one of the heroes, Mike Huckabee!!!

    Hi Mike, In light of the approaching increase on stamps by the USPS, how is Congress coming along with the passage of the bill privatizing the USPS. Haven’t heard much on the subject in awhile. Thanks! DeAnna

    Thanks so much Mike Huckabee for sharing your gifts of explaining the rights of unborn children and the evil that abortion can and will do if it is not curtailed. God bless you for all the things you write about. I enjoy so much reading your newsletter!

    No border, no country and abortion on demand is a return to paganism. Praying for the survival of America, its Constitution, and Bill of Rights!

    It's amazing that the points are clear! I have quietly observed that so many of us are guilty of being addicted to convenience. You could apply that in many areas of our life. In this case it is to be applied to WE THE PEOPLE being inspired enough to seek the TRUTH for ourselves, rather that the drum beat of the fake news. At this point I would like to share this; Have you noticed that most of the time when we hear bits of news/information, we might have the reaction of; "This doesn't make sense." Or hear a point and respond; WOW that makes sense.?? In the first example I think it applies to things that aren't truth. Lies, or maybe call it twisted truth? Then in the latter example; Something that makes sense helps us see TRUTH. That is what the general population needs to remember. We have to pity anyone who is a puppet to lies; "A deceived man does not know he has been deceived until he discovers the TRUTH. And then my favorite; "There are NONE so blind that WILL NOT SEE. We need to spend time in prayer so that real site might be delivered to our fellow Americans that fall into that category. God Bless America. God give us all the vision to see TRUTH. Then act on it!

    In deciding to vote for a candidate for any office, I get their stand on “Life” or “Choice”.
    If a candidate isn’t for life, that candidate will not receive my vote. If a person does not honor and respect life, he/she probably will not respect or honor other major issues.
    As Christians, God have us a choice: I present before you life or death. I would that you choose life. (Paraphrased)

    I think there is a more significant third: President Trump's efforts against MS-13. > ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations division arrested 796 MS-13 members and associates in FY 2017, an 83 percent increase from the prior year.
    > Justice worked with partners in Central America to secure criminal charges against more than 4,000 MS-13 members.
    > Border Patrol agents arrested 228 illegal aliens affiliated with MS-13 in FY 2017.
    Given that some MS-13 members ARE registered to vote, pick who you think they will vote for (based on the above statistics) and vote for the other person. Should be a simple decision for the undecided.

    Close the boarders, process and deport those in custody, get rid of those with expired visiases and put the Army on the boarder. Dems are creating this situation to make Trump look bad before election if he stops it.

    I like your self, have been around long enough to see the party's change dramatically.
    We have watched as the working man's party of old, the democrats, have morphed into a Godless group of thugs, willing to sacrifice all at the alter of evil,
    The killing of children in the womb, the open borders,
    they stand for things that I believe my Democratic grandparents, or F.D.R. Would not have considered for a second.
    Meanwhile as they have fell off the left most boundrys of American reasonability. They have turned everything in our society into chaos.
    Hoping to gain power.

    I moved to the Republican party, when I realized that they were the party that had been converted into the working class party, or as you called them Wal-Mart republicans

    The entrench old republicans don't like it much, but as soon as I heard Trump talk about the bad deals our politicians had made, I saw the truth in that, the jobss that have left America since the 1970s were devastating, the little things that were given up by our leaders in the one world order strategy, left the proud working class Americans behind, to where many were forgotten and lead a third world life style.

    Today's corporate leaders have loss (if they ever processed it) the pride and patriotism of those who lived in my lifetime, Sam Walton, Ross Perot, just to mention a few,
    These two men were real American tycoons, who built their businesses to better the life's of there customers and employees.
    While the leaders.of their companies today, seem to have forgotten the lessons of the original founders
    I as a Christian do not want to stand before my maker. And answer to why I was a member of a party that pushed for the slaughter of innocents. That so blatantly despises the Christian faith,and it's teaching, while protecting every radical religion that would put us all in bondage, who worship every deviant sexual relationship.reguardless of the depravity., a party that promotes and encourages vandelisim, hate, and mob attacks on people who disagree with them.

    I do not want to be associated in any way with such a group, in the eyes of my God

    Don't walk away, RUN !!!!

    Astonished is not even close to my views.
    Am an old man, been thru 2 wars fighting for our country when it is being taken over by the same people who want to destroy it and all it stands for.
    Why would killing babies even be a political issue?
    Why fighting socialism be an issue.?
    When did we forget the word "treason" when it applies to democrats.?
    I am a total independent and vote straight republican!
    We have sacrificed millions of lives fighting to dispel what the demos are fighting to impose on us.
    Got an idea. Let's do a FBI deep dive into the backgrounds of all politicians in or running for office.
    Have good friends who are Muslim "lite" but hate Trump with a passion due to his immigration stands. I asked if they thought anyone should be able to come into the USA anytime they wanted to? Of course they said yes.
    Then they went back home and got caught by immigration in Spain and could not continue on. Had to spend their vacation time in the airport. Had a good laugh about this.
    Keep; up the good work you do! Stay out of the bubble and get out and see real folks who bear the scars of yesterday and continue what you do.
    You want to see real folks, go to a Trump rally!

    If the Dumbacrats (Speeling error, NO) get their way, after abortion will come the death penalty for being a Babyboomer, terminally ill, retired persons, politically minded opponents, and who knows what other catagory that doesn’t fit their MOLD. Life is a God given gift to each of us, plane and simple. Who has any right to take the gift of life away from anyone (except for maybe violent, convicted criminals). They are playing God when in reality they think they are gods. There is coming a day, soon, when they will have to reap the penalty’s of God’s Judgement. No person will escape that. If they don’t believe God is real now, that is not confermation that HE doesn’t exist, the truth will be revealed upon the return of Jesus Christ.

    I think President Trump could stop the caravan cold by doing an executive order that makes it mandatory that every business use e-verify when hiring employees. If they can't get a job in the USA, they won't be so anxious to come here.

    People who advocate to let everyone into the U.S. needs to look at the overall picture. First, diseases that we had eradicated are being diagnosed once again as those from other countries bring the diseases with them. A disease with polio like symptoms has been confirmed in OK and FL. Are we willing to risk our children’s health and their lives? Second, 100 Islamic terrorists were discovered in this latest 4,000 strong caravan headed to the U.S. while in Guatemala. How many have made it through into the U.S. already and how many are in the caravan yet undiscovered?

    The president's primary responsibility is to keep America safe. He is given authority over the entire military to accomplish that end. If the safety of Americans is threatened by mass illegal immigration, the president has the authority and the responsibility to use what ever means necessary, including the military, to keep America safe. It is his duty!

    Mike I don't understand that our country is so poor that we can't get congress to give money for the wall, I understand that the Democrats don't want to wall so they can continue letting undocumented people to vote as they do now.
    Why can't we have a Go Fund Me for the wall, believe me Mike I am poor but I would be willing to add $10.00 to the fund. I am sure that there enough Republicans that would chip in as well.
    Thanks Mike

    Using the UN Refugee Program in regard to the caravan is a very wise solution. The US could still be a host country for a few of them and we would not have to be overrun.
    Kavanaugh was the right choice as he believes in the US Constitution. I'm not exactly certain what position the Constitution would take on the issue of abortion ( believe it would side with life) but I would support the Founding Fathers decision on it since they founded "one nation under God."
    Keep in touch Mike if you ever decide to run for President again. Maybe you could find a job for me in your administration.
    Take Care,
