Comedian and Trump nemesis Rosie O’Donnell could find herself in hot water over allegedly making illegal campaign contributions to at least five Democratic national candidates. She gave a combined $5400 beyond the legal limits, but she claims it was “nothing nefarious” and she didn’t know there were limits (individuals may donate to as many campaigns as they like, but only $2700 for each primary, run-off and general election race). O’Donnell says she donated money through the liberal fundraising site ActBlue, assuming they would refund any overages. For the record, it’s never a good idea to rely on any website run by liberal activists to tell you when they’ve taken too much of somebody else’s money. It’s what they live for.

O’Donnell’s protestations of innocence are meeting with some skepticism, with critics noting that if she wasn’t trying to evade the laws, then why did she donate under four slightly different variations of her name and five different addresses? Also, she has a history of disregarding campaign finance laws, such as tweeting an offer of $2 million each to Senators Susan Collins and Jeff Flake to try to bribe them to vote against the GOP tax cut bill.

NY State AG Eric Schneiderman resigns

By Mike Huckabee

Late last night, New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman suddenly resigned in the wake of stunning allegations of physical and sexual abuse. Schneiderman, an outspoken liberal Democrat, had been making a name for himself as a crusading champion of the “Me Too” movement, posturing as a defender of women with his public criticism and legal targeting of President Trump and his move to press charges against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

But four women who’d had past relationships with him got fed up with seeing him be praised as a feminist hero and take bows for fighting violence against women, and they came forward with some truly disturbing allegations against him. As one of the women put it, “His hypocrisy is epic. He’s fooled so many people.” Two of the women went on the record; the others were afraid to give their names for fear of reprisals, but they told similar stories.

Consequences of ignorance

By Mike Huckabee

It’s always a little difficult to be lectured with the nonsensical leftist cliché that you’re on “the wrong side of history” by someone who’s apparently not yet taken History 101. Or who took that class, only to be spoon-fed highly selective anti-American propaganda. George Santayana said that those who can’t remember the past are condemned to repeat it, but what is there about our current youth that makes them think they can predict the future when they don’t even know what happened in the past?

You could make that case about young people’s current flirtation with the hideous, tragic failed system that is socialism, but the article at the link focuses on the current high school anti-gun movement and the sage tweets of Master David Hogg. He seems to think that the movements for India’s independence and civil rights for blacks were examples of peaceful change that disprove the need for guns for self-defense. We won’t go into how many people were killed in India during the “peaceful resistance” era, or how lying down in front of tanks would have worked against a nation like, say, Nazi Germany, China or the USSR, that didn’t care what other nations thought of it.

But I wonder if he even realizes that without private firearms, many blacks in America would have gone unprotected by local racist authorities and been at the mercy of the KKK? And which civil rights organization fought for their right to arm and defend themselves, even allowing blacks to organize chapters of its group when other national organizations excluded them? It was Hogg’s bogey-man, the National Rifle Association, one of the oldest civil rights groups in America.

Read the article, or better yet, make your teenagers read it. It will make you want to take a more active role in overseeing what your kids are being taught in history class. Or maybe even reconsider which school you’re sending them to.



Record month

By Mike Huckabee

With all the endless cable news talk about vital issues like porn star lawsuits and, of course, “Russia, Russia, Russia,” you might not have heard this minor story: April was the best month for the federal budget in history.

The April 15th tax haul came in, and thanks to a surging economy and Americans earning more money, the Congressional Budget Office reports that the government took in $515 billion and spent $297 billion. That left a record $218 billion monthly surplus. It broke the previous record of $190 billion in 2001, and was $40 billion more than “experts” predicted (the same economic experts who are always as surprised as rabbits in car headlights by whatever the economy actually does.)

Hey, wait! I thought that tax cut was going to lead to fiscal Armageddon?! Well, it turns out that people are paying more taxes because they now have higher incomes. Weird how that worked out, huh?

President Trump got tax rates lower, which is boosting economic growth and personal income, which is increasing tax revenues, which is exactly what the “discredited” supply side economists predicted. Now, he has an even bigger challenge: get Congress to stop spending money so fast that they need to bring in over half a trillion dollars every month just to stay in the black.

That may be a difficult mission, but I can make one prediction with absolute certainty: if the voters give the House, with its budget-making and spending power, back to the Democrats and Nancy Pelosi, it will be a Mission Impossible.

Obamacare rate hikes in Maryland

By Mike Huckabee

You’d think that if any state actually reflected the liberal narrative that Obamacare is now working great and too popular to get rid of, it would be Maryland, the Lobbyists’ and Lawyers’ LaLa Land and major suburban residence of so many well-heeled Washington, DC, heels.

But yesterday, insurers on the Maryland Obamacare exchanges sent consumers reeling by requesting 2019 rate hikes that average 30%, with a top hike of a staggering 91% for an “extended network” plan – which we used to call “choosing your own doctor” back when that was standard procedure.

And what is the Democratic excuse for these whiplash-inducing rate hikes on Obamacare policies? It’s Trump’s fault, of course! These are examples of how Trump’s health care policies are causing hikes in premiums!

Note that according to a study by, from the year before Obamacare arrived through 2016, the average individual health insurance premium in the US rose by 99%, and family policy premiums increased by 140%. I have to tip my hat to the insurance companies’ actuaries for having the remarkable foresight to predict Trump winning the election and taking office in 2017 when they asked for those massive rate hikes during the four previous years.
