Thanks for all the comments. I especially like the positive response to my call to action, “Tear down this ‘deep state’ wall!” Very Reaganesque.

Here’s an interesting question from Richrd Payne: “All we ever talk about is Strzok and Page. Isn’t anyone else guilty?”

Oh my goodness, yes. The reason Strzok and Page have been in the headlines (at least my headlines) every day for almost a week is that their texts from the period IG Michael Horowitz called a “gap” are suddenly trickling out. In fact, their texts show that they were not operating in a vacuum. They implicate others with whom they worked, referring specifically to “Andy’s office” and coordination within the Justice Department --- a “media leaking strategy” with the DOJ. (Despite the ridiculous claim that Strzok’s lawyer tried to make, it’s easy to see from the context that they were talking about a strategy not to STOP leaks, but to CREATE them.) As more text messages come out, they will no doubt add to the larger picture of what’s been going on at the Justice Department in recent years.

Florence update

By Mike Huckabee

As much of America is enjoying the weekend, please keep those in the path of Hurricane (now downgraded to Tropical Storm) Florence in your prayers.  While the storm has weakened, it’s already proved deadly, and there is continuing danger from high winds and flooding.

One image has emerged from the storm as a symbol of hope and resolve by Americans to weather any storm together.  It’s an American flag about 30 miles off the Carolina coast, at Frying Pan Tower, a B&B that used to be a lighthouse.  All the people evacuated, but the flag remained, captured on a webcam being whipped by the intense winds and rains.  Check it out at the link.  This time, it wasn’t the rockets' red glare but the lightning that gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.  Nevertheless, it was still there, on its flagpole and flying proudly and defiantly through the hurricane.

Speaking of how Americans put aside their difference and stand together when storms arrive, here’s an example of that in action.  Maybe after this, there will be at least one Democrat who won’t be blaming President Trump for the bad weather.


"Huckabee" preview

By Mike Huckabee

On this weekend when the weather news is dominating TV, I hope you’ll take an hour off of watching the radar to switch to TBN for a brand new episode of “Huckabee.”  Fox News Supreme Court reporter Shannon Bream will drop by to talk about the latest shameful shenanigans in the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. I’ll welcome Oliver North and the Rev. Franklin Graham, and have a sneak peak at the new faith-based movie, “Unbroken: Path to Redemption.”  Plus a lot more fun and surprises, topped off with music from the amazing Annie Moses Band (trust me: you have to see this incredibly unique group!) It’s all coming your way tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, and repeated at the same times on Sunday, only on TBN.  To find out where to watch in your area, and to stream previous episodes, visit


Just for the record

By Mike Huckabee

Just for the record: legally-armed citizens don’t just save innocent people before the police show up.  Sometimes, they help save the police, too.

Manafort plea deal

By Mike Huckabee

After being pursued, raided in his home in the middle of the night, indicted, jailed and slapped into solitary confinement before he was even convicted, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort struck a plea deal to avoid a second trial.  He agreed to plead guilty to avoid a second trial on charges of foreign lobbying violations in his dealings with Ukraine and witness tampering.  He could get up to 10 years in prison and has to forfeit some bank accounts and properties, but he’ll get to keep properties in Florida and Virginia, where his family lives.  His attorney said Manafort “wanted to make sure that his family was able to remain safe and live a good life.”

The deal also includes agreeing to “full cooperation” with the Mueller investigation, but Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani says they’re not concerned because, again, these charges have nothing to do with Trump’s campaign or Russian collusion – which, if you can remember back that far, is what Mueller was supposed to be investigating. 

Is this plea deal really a case of justice being served against a particularly bad actor, or of a rogue prosecutor granted far too much power and leeway being allowed to hound a target for things a lot of people do until he cracks and pleads guilty just to make it stop?  I guess the only way to know would be to appoint a brigade of similar prosecutors, each with bottomless resources, no investigative limits and the power to raid houses, businesses and even attorney’s records and hold people in solitary who’ve not even been convicted of anything, and turn them loose on every well-heeled lobbyist in Washington.  I’ll bet that thought would terrify a lot of never-Trump DC dwellers into changing their tunes on a Ukrainian dime.


Even Ginsburg says enough is enough

By Mike Huckabee

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has recently become a heroine of the left with her unprecedented public statements against President Trump.  A documentary about her life became an unlikely box office hit. But even she thinks that the partisan showboating in the Senate over Brett Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS confirmation is beyond the pale. 

As she notes, she was a well-known liberal who’d worked for the ACLU for a decade when she was nominated in 1993 by Bill Clinton, and the Senate still confirmed her 96-3. Back then, Republicans still held to the quaint notion that winning the Presidency brought with it certain powers, such as nominating judges, and that the Senate’s advice and consent role did not entail ripping his choices to shreds, slandering them in public or voting against them out of sheer spite.  When the Senate Democrats have lost even Ruth Bader Ginsburg, it might be time to shut down the partisan slaughterhouse and go do a little soul-searching.  Let me know if you find one.

    I don't get it, since all these crimes have been committed, why hasn't anyone gone to jail yet?
    Jeff Sessions really needs to go, the sooner the better. Make Sheriff Joe from Milwaukee the A.G.
    I bet things would get done quickly then.
