What a week this has been!  President Trump had his 2nd summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, Congress has been grilling admitted and convicted liar Michael Cohen, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu was indicted by his political enemies in Israel, and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declared herself the “Boss” and pushed for a guaranteed minimum income for everyone.  And yet there’s another issue from this week that’s bigger than any of those, but I’ll save it for last.

Like the song by the great American diplomat Kenny Rogers, “You gotta know when to hold them; know when to fold them; know when to walk away when the dealing’s done,” President Trump walked away from his meeting with N. Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and headed back to Washington without signing an agreement.  The same critics who predicted he would sign away America’s security then condemned him for NOT signing away America’s security.  The left may be irrational, but at least they are consistently irrational.  I’ve said for some time that getting a true verifiable de-nuclearization deal will not be an event, but a process.  This was another step in the process, but what the leader of the Hermit Kingdom now realizes is that President Trump will not agree to something just to claim a victory if it’s not a good plan for the rest of the world.  The people who couldn’t give him credit for getting up from the table and demonstrating resolve probably would have preferred that he just deliver pallets of green US cash to the tune of billions of dollars in unrestricted money and let N Korea keep its nuclear program.

A surreal Congressional hearing involved Michael Cohen, the admitted and convicted liar and former lawyer for Donald Trump.  He admitted to and was convicted of lying to Congress.  Let that sink in.  So they invite him back so he can lie about his lies.  Trusting him to come tell the truth is like trusting Jussie Smollett to outfit your kids for Halloween costumes.  In Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been charged with corruption crimes by his political enemies in the Israeli justice system just days before the Israeli elections…if you think there are people out to get our President, just know that the far left in Israel hates their Prime Minister as much as our press and far left hate our President. 


NY freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made more news this week by declaring herself to be “the Boss.”  Of what we aren’t sure, but she has advocated guaranteeing everyone a minimum income.  Why a minimum, Congresswoman?  Let’s go for a MAXIMUM!  If we going to give away money, let’s do it big!  Why guarantee $20,000 a year…let’s make it $40K, or $75K or heck, let’s just make everyone a millionaire!

But the issue that has the potential of greatest impact-not just politically, but culturally and morally is the failure of the US Senate to pass a bill by Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska that simply said that if a baby survived an attempted abortion and was born alive, the doctor present would render aid and try to save the baby’s life.  That bill failed.  Let that sink in.  People elected to make our laws refused to pass one that would have required treating a living, breathing baby with at least the same respect we’d demand of treating a cat, dog, or sea turtle.  One of the Senators who voted against it said it wasn’t good for women’s reproductive health.  That is a lie!  When the baby is born, the woman has already reproduced and there is nothing healthy about killing the baby and the woman no longer is even physically connected to the baby.  Why do I say this was the most important issue?  Because if we as a country and culture can’t and won’t try to save a crying baby that has survived one attempt to kill it and allow the attending doctor to kill it instead of save it, then none of these other issues matter.  We won’t have to wait the 12 years the radical greenies say we have before we become human toast because of global warming, I believe God may pull the plug on us Himself and as it was in the time of Noah, simply say, “That’s enough.”  And who could blame Him?  And when God has enough of this, HIS version of global warming ain’t going to be pretty!

    I don't have a clue whether or not Kim Jong Un knew about Otto's treatment. It's funny (not ha-ha funny) that people would be aghast, outraged, angry that Kim Jong Un would say he wasn't aware, but these same people didn't blink an eye when anything negative about obama's administration came out, his standard response was, well, he only became aware of it when, like all Americans, he read about it in the newspaper, or heard it on a "news" program. I think, for those that swallowed obama's excuse hook, line and sinker they would also have to be Kim Jong Un.

    Hello Mr. Huckabee on a previous post with your daughter and a news anchor talking about President trump's budget. The news anchor had said something about the budget would effect the medicare/medicaid program. But Sarah never answered that question directly. That really is concerning to me. Do you know the answer? Thank you very much. Im quickly approaching that age, i need medical insurance!!

    What heartbreaking news. I was not blessed with children and I am angry that anyone can justify killing a baby for such a lame excuse that
    it impacts the woman's reproductive rights. Those in favor of such an abominable practice should be ashamed.

    I praise the Lord for your defense of human life!
    What has happened to the "promise" to ban governmental support for "Planned Parenthood" and I use the term "parenthood" loosely.
    Please keep up the good work.
    I am praying that God will send us a revival and defeat Satan.
    Jesus is coming soon. After that the liberals can have their way.

    Did what was right in their own eyes.

    In Scripture that never turns out good for those accused of it. We need to repent.

    Your last statement on this post is right on, and yes enough is enough when it has reached His enough stage in human history. Grant Carpenter said below take heart there is a great revival coming, he needs to look to other countries it has already started but may never experience that in the good old USA. I take heart that we may soon hear the call to come up here!!! AMEN

    Don't despair, Mike. A great revival is coming. Many will then want to please the Lord instead pleasing a voter block. Even some Democrats!! Seriously, we need to pray that many liberals will get their heads out of the sand & see they need to get right with the Lord. Then they will vote so as to please Him!

    I was shocked by NY Democrats full term abortion bill. It was considered urgent as well, passing in their first two months in control of the legislature. Then Senate Democrats lied about the anti-infanticide bill and voted against it. They hate pro-life citizens so much that they have become insanely spiteful. In interviews they can not answer direct questions about it. We know the Left is unreasonable but really? Not one candidate for POTUS has the guts to say they could vote yes because the bill had nothing to do with restricting abortions and women's health. Not one. One good thing may come out of this. The Democrats really stepped in it. The American public should be much more inclined towards morality but they are not going to stand for this gutless surrender to evil.

    I am with you on this. The left is going against all of God's Commandments and I believe He going to do something about this soon.

    I see where several so-called Republicans plan to block President Trump's National Emergency move. Please, if you can, let them know they are the reason we are in so much trouble. If you notice, the Democrats STICK TOGETHER right or wrong disagree o not, they stick together and there is might in numbers. The Republicans all seem to be trying to make a name for themselves, individually and prove how splendid they are INDIVIDUALLY instead of as a group or as a party. Thus, we lost the house because of these "splendid" Republicans and I feel we are heading for disaster if they don't band together and GET BEHIND OUR PRESIDENT, agree with him or not. Get smart people, we are in trouble and trying to prove how smart you are individually is not going to get us out of it. Again, please back our President.
    Thank you for listening

    Thanks Mike for standing for what is right! Keep standing and fighting for what is right!


    Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20

    Sadly there are the old Franklin D. Roosevelt democrats that still see the democrat party as the party for the "poor man" and for some reason they are blind to what the Democrat party is today. Prayers that the blinders come off before the next election!!!

    I cannot adequately state the ludicrous, incongruent, despicable stance regarding the issue of life that has been demonstrated by our American congress. A value of saving lives in the oath taken by our medical doctors to peace negotiations and protection of people across the United States and round the world by our federal and local government agencies is a foundation of who we are as a country; yet totally helpless newborns are essentially trashed. NEVER an excuse. Consider it could have been any one of us or a loved
    relative. Still it is inexpressible the disdain I feel about this whole issue of aborting an unborn baby or a new born baby. Our daughter last month delivered a 28 week old baby which had died in the womb. When she held with great live and compassion, it was her baby, a human being. Do not kill babies unborn, or newborn--that is murder and may the proponents of this reap their due.

    Perhaps it would be too much to expect life log Democrats steeped n the evils of the GOP gomsctuslly change parties, but the could go
    Independent like a man for whom .I great respect, Senator Lieberman. Then they could Caucus with the .GOP and maybe get something done except for endless investigations, soaking up millions. I have a feeling that if a DNC candidate is elected other than a Mother Teresa or the Pope, the GOP will be investigating wether or not their mothers breast fed them, causing some sort of mental disorder. The GOP needs a born poor, child of illegal immigrants, transgender black or Hispanic woman who studied economics and actually listened in class to be the candidate.

    Maranantha! Truly the end is going to be much uglier than any Democrat could imagine but they will surely be the ones telling God He is wrong right to the White Throne Judgment.

    For starters the Democrat Party no longer has a platform or even a political idea of what a Republic is and how it functions. Their one goal is to become wealthy and powerful off the backs of the working class. This is the agenda of all the Socialist Dictators of the world and that of the American Democrat Party. They are killing babies in the womb and just born, they allow criminals to run free in our neighborhoods and let illegals take our money in welfare and Social Security without putting a dime into it. They have controlled the educational system for 40 years giving us several generations of children with educations classified last in the entire world or at the very least in the bottom 10 countries . The Democratic Party has become the new world Nazi Party even worse than Hitlers 1938 Democratic Socialist Party with one difference Hitler's Nazi's were actually smarter than our morons are.

    Mike, You are right in what you say about this. In our Bible study we are covering the end times and I can assure you that God will hold these people responsible for all they do. I pray that Jesus comes soon and ends this shameful sin.

    Your comment on the killing of babies is spot on. What I hoped you were talking about when I read the title "change parties", was the havoc we could raise in the democrat primaries. Since Trump should be a lock, we as a block of Republican voters could pick the democrat opponent. We could help select the most unelectable or perhaps the most moderate ( if there is one ). We just need a leader to follow the primaries and help pick one candidate for each state as the primaries unfold. That leader is you Governor.

    Thank you for being one place that speaks truth! I delete lots of things that hit my inbox but your emails are ones I always read and they give me hope that the whole world has not lost it's mind! I have hoped and prayed for Congress to work together and find common ground. That however seems hopeless now if saving a baby born alive from an abortion could not pass our congress. It is no longer about what the country needs it is only about politics and winning for your side. This strategy however means losing for the American people. I have thought we should vote them all out and to some degree that did happen in the last election but sadly we only got folks that were even crazier. We just hit 22 trillion on the debt clock and the only conversations in the media from Politian's are about giving free stuff. I can't even wrap my brain around this stuff anymore. God help us!

    Amen. No truer words can be spoken about our country and I will just add what God has to say about the babies. Please read Psalms 139: 15-17 and then see if the truth doesn't set you free. Abortion is ungodly no matter how you try to justify it.

    I believe our country is in a downward spiral of complete madness. It is inconceivable that our country would sanction infanticide, and clearly the current congress does not consider this an important issue! If life isn't a compelling issue, then I seriously question what else can be worthwhile. We have been witnessing, since 1973, the greatest genocide in history: At 60million souls that is twice that of Hitler and Stalin combined.

    I don't know exactly how we can bear effective witness, but we are witnessing the completion of the downward spiral described in Romans 1: 18-32. The early Christians rescued babies from the dumps of Imperial Rome and Greece. Those saved from "being exposed", the polite term used in those days for babies left to die, sometimes took names to scorn their origin: For example, "Rescued from the trash bin"; "Unwanted, but saved", etc.

    May God turn us around!
