December 19, 2019

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, when parents across America crowd into churches to watch their kids perform in the Christmas Nativity play. Countless nine- and ten-year-olds are donning bathrobes and head towels, gluing on fake beards and standing in front of cardboard mangers to play Joseph, the Innkeeper and the Three Wise Men. 

And no matter how charmingly amateurish they are, all of them are more convincing in their roles that Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats, who on Wednesday wrapped themselves in black, stood in front of cardboard American flags and tried to convince us that they are sincere defenders of the Constitution. Of course, they’d be equally unconvincing in the roles of Wise Men, but I digress.

(At this link, David Harsanyi of National Review echoes what I recently wrote about the nausea induced by having to listen to people who are waging war on the First Amendment and want to abolish the Second Amendment and the Electoral College drone on about how much they revere the Constitution as they impeach a President for invoking his due process rights:)

The absolute nadir came when Speaker Nancy Pelosi compared the Democrats’ anti-Trump political jihad to the World War II Battle of the Bulge, where 100,000 American soldiers were killed or wounded.  Did any House Democrats suffer by even missing a cocktail party during their assault on Trump and the Constitution?  That comment was as offensive as it was self-aggrandizing.

The Democrats’ endless impeachment theater flop finally limped to its weak finale (let us pray) yesterday, as the House voted to impeach President Trump along the very same partisan lines that Pelosi said would be divisive, destructive and unacceptable (she was right then, but they did it anyway.)  The only “bipartisanship” came when several Democrats defected and Tulsi Gabbard disappointingly wimped out and voted “present” on both counts.

Having unearthed no actual evidence of wrongdoing and cobbled together laughably weak “articles” of impeachment, the Democrats tried to shore up their rickety case with a “throw spaghetti at the wall and see if anything sticks” tactic.  They repeated “nobody is above the law” more times that the word “baby” appears in a Justin Bieber song (if it's true nobody is above the law, why is Hillary still walking around loose?)  And they regurgitated every out-of-context Trump quote, fake news story and anti-Trump Facebook meme of the past three years to try to justify their impeachment vote. All this did was remind us that the claim this is based on a phone call that happened last July is transparently bogus, and that they’ve been calling for Trump’s impeachment since Election night of 2016.  Some have already voted for it multiple times on similarly feeble “grounds.” 

One of my favorite soliloquies came from Texas Rep. Al Green, who would call for impeaching Trump if he found lumps in his oatmeal. He hauled up a debunked Internet meme of a crying three-year-old allegedly separated from her mother at the border, apparently to prove Trump deserves impeachment for being a big meanie who enforces immigration laws (funny, I missed that in the Articles of Impeachment.)

Problem: The kid was never separated from her mother (who, by the way, had been previously deported, and brought her child on the dangerous journey to reenter the US illegally without even telling her father where they were.)   That child was merely crying for the same reason Democrats have been crying ever since Trump won the election: because she has the mentality of a three-year-old. At least she has the excuse of actually being three years old.

And when the bad impeachment theater finally reached its anticlimactic end, like many bad amateur actors, the performers dropped character and started high-fiving and celebrating before the curtain came down all the way.

I know the Democrats think they’ve accomplished something by putting a “stain” next to Trump’s name in the history books, but they’re dead wrong. The closest analogy I can make is to the stories of hate-filled jihadist bombers who set out to blow up an infidel and accidentally detonated themselves – or as I call those, “feel-good stories.” Trump will sail right along, his approval ratings buoyed by their unfair attack on him, and I predict, win reelection comfortably.  (His Gallup approval rating has risen 6 points just since this impeachment pageant went into rehearsals in September: )

Even as the vote was being taken, Trump was leading a rally in the once reliably Democratic blue collar state of Michigan, where thousands of people waited in long lines in freezing weather to see him. That’s got to put a chill into the DNC.

Long after this Congress is a bad memory, the talking heads are forgotten and the newspapers that vilify him daily are discarded bird cage liner, Trump will be judged by his many accomplishments.  The stain in the history books will be on this childish, viciously partisan House, for wasting the taxpayers’ time and money on a political vendetta that has cheapened, demeaned and weaponized one of the most serious responsibilities of Congress.

It’s the same thing that happened under Obama to the FBI, the DOJ, the IRS and other agencies that once had the respect of the public as nonpartisan professionals, and are now so tarnished, nobody trusts or believes a word they say.  All I’ll say to the House is, “Welcome to the Disgraced Club.”

    The Dems have just made President Trump one of the most famous, if not THE most famous President ever. Impeaching a duly elected President who has done nothing but good for America and it's citizens. He has kept his campaign promises, and that is what scares them the most. Drain that swamp Mr. President! Those who hate you the most are the ones most afraid of being fully exposed for the being the corrupt, criminal monsters that they are. Let there be equal Justice for all!

    Thank you Governor Huckabee. This has all been so confusing but I knew I would understand your truthful explanation of what is really going on. I totally agree with you and appreciate all you have to say. I believe that Nancy Pelosi meant this for his harm and God will turn it for his good. Thank you so much and God Bless you and your family. Kathy from N.C.

    The other day I kept thinking along these same lines. I’ve lived through two impeachment’s in my lifetime. Both were viable. Andrew Johnson’s impeachment interested me, so I looked up some info on it. It, too, was a viable impeachment.

    Then, I thought what will history say 100 years from now? About Pelosi and this whole farce of an impeachment process, by the Democrats?

    Trump throughout all of this, has done a tremendous job for this country. What is it that the Democrats have done? Every move, President Trump has made for us, the Democrats make a countermove. They have been blatantly open on their attacks against President Trump, from his Campaign, to Inauguration Day, right until today.

    I do wish we could fast forward to 100 years from now. Even, 50 years from now! Just to see how history books have written about this time in our American History.

    Dear Mike,
    I REALLY appreciate your insight and humor when it comes to the "clown parade" that is known as the democratic and the liberal socialist left. You TV show is badly needed to counter the left's attempt to deliver entertainment laced with liberal politics. I am truly glad to FINALLY see the Republicans united and outspoken in this sham of an impeachment fiasco.
    That being said, I must caution you about writing letters to Nancy Pelosi. The Bible clearly states that we Christians must "not reason with a fool". All the letters, comments and rules of law we state are, I'm afraid, falling on deaf ears. It should be no surprise to us that with all the points of order the Republicans present, that the Democrats continue with their narrative and their complete disregard of the Constitution. After all it was Barack Obama who stated that the Constitution was a "Green document" and needed to be updated. As I am sure you know , the Constitution, like the Bible, was not written in pencil. The Democratic left has NO regard for right and wrong and will only enforce the right when it agrees with them. And so we need to approach the left with that in mind. They are blind to the truth unless it agrees with them, then it really is no longer the truth. I'm afraid when this is all over they will emerge just a little shaken and no one will go after Hillary, Obama or Biden and the "abuses of power" they exercised. Not to mention Nadler, Schiff and Comey et al.
    Sorry to ramble but, as a Christian, I am tired of Justice turning a "blind eye" to their "bully tactics"
    Keep up the good and righteous work. We need more of those like you and your daughter in this fight!

    Right again! I git a funny chuckle comparing the Democrats to children playing the wise men in the Nativity!

    This mockery of an impeachment now being held hostage by power hungry Pelosi is not only historic but is now evidence of a crooked and evil democratic Congress. I pray that the good men and women in our Republican Congress and Senate will take the appropriate measures needed to save our President Trump from further bullying and political malice. I further hope for those who caused this continued abomination from the start to soon experience the karma that is so deserving by so many.
    I enjoy your posts and remarks. You are a great man of fine character.

    I just saw on Facebook that Christianity Today said that they were supporting the impeachment of our president With Franklin Graham somewhat also. But the article seems kind of like Fake news to me. Do you know if that could be true. Thank you

    I have been reading that the Supreme Court can extend President Trumps term by three years, if he is acquitted by the senate. I think this is why Speaker Pelosi is sitting on this not wanting to send it over. I would love to hear some thoughts on this. Plus I think it would be great if it actually happened, the liberals would lose what little mind they have.

    Thank you for all you are doing! I support President Trump and will vote for.him in 2020. The one comment I would like to make is: President Trump please limit your tweeting and please be kinder with some comments. I don't know how he has kept his sanity during all of this but the press and Dems are waiting to jump on anything. His comments at the rally were a little offensive and we don't want this to turn new walkways away! Bless you Mr. Huckabee! God bless America!

    God put Trump as our President! I wouldn’t want to go against what God does. We Christians need to continue to humble ourselves and seek His face and turn from our wicked ways. Hopefully Republicans will take control of the House! Democrats are CRAZY! Except the couple who voted no.
