From Frank:

I've been a fan of yours for years (and would have voted for you for President) but the outrage directed at Congresswoman Ilhan Omar for her remarks about Israel is both uninformed and hypocritical. She is being pilloried for telling the truth.

Since its enactment in 1938, the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) has required that agents representing the interests of foreign powers in a "political or quasi-political capacity" disclose that relationship and publish information about related activities and finances. Israel, alone among all the world’s countries, has been specifically exempted from having to comply with this law. The threat this exemption poses to the integrity of our nation’s electoral processes is clear beyond question and completely unacceptable. Legislation should be immediately enacted to require that:

1. All nations, including Israel, comply fully with the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

2. No one enjoying dual citizenship with ANY other nation can be employed in the Legislative, Executive, or Judicial branches of the U.S. government.

3. All members of the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial branches of the U.S. government disclose all contributions received from ANY foreign government or its agents.

It is not “anti-Semitic” to demand that United States be protected from the obvious conflict of interest threat to national security posed by the current state of affairs. The GOP's official position on this issue will come back to bite them. Americans are finally waking up.


With gratitude,

Mike Huckabee

Prayers today for the victims of the Kenya-bound Ethiopian Airlines flight

By Mike Huckabee

Our prayers today for the victims of the Kenya-bound Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed shortly after takeoff in Addis Ababa Sunday morning.  It was a new Boeing 737-8 MAX plane.  The cause is still under investigation at this writing. All 157 people aboard were killed, and they represented 35 nationalities, including eight Americans.  To show how international airline travel has made the world seem smaller, “Huckabee” writer Laura Ainsworth has a good friend who is a prominent musician in India and was scheduled to be on that flight, but he missed it only due to a last-minute schedule change.  

This is a tragic reminder not only of how fragile life can be, but how a tragedy like this should make us all stop and reflect and say a prayer for the victims, even if it happens on the far side of the world.  There but for the grace of God go any one of us.


2020 budget politics

By Mike Huckabee 

Today, President Trump will release his 2020 federal budget proposal to Congress, and it will reportedly include a request for $8.2 billion for border wall construction.  Democrats are already vowing to block it because, of course, there is no security “crisis” or "emergency" on the border.

On a completely unrelated subject, US Customs and Border Protection report that in just one night last week, in just one sector of the border (El Paso), agents caught more than 700 people trying to enter the US illegally, including two sex offenders who had previously been deported.

Since Congressional Democrats don’t consider that anything to be concerned about, maybe they’d like to draw straws and see which of them will welcome the sex offenders into their guest bedrooms?


Documents coming out, but "in many respects," Hillary still runs the show

By Mike Huckabee

On Friday, the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia, released the full, unredacted 238-page transcript of Bruce Ohr’s closed-door testimony before a task force from the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees that took place during the summer. As you recall, Ohr was fourth in command at the Justice Department, working under Rod Rosenstein, and Ohr’s wife Nellie worked for Fusion GPS on the Hillary/DNC-funded Trump/Russia “dossier.” Collins said his patience with the Justice Department had “grown thin” –- no kidding. He says he’ll be releasing more transcripts; perhaps he means Nellie Ohr’s testimony, as they also interviewed her.

Shocking poll

By Mike Huckabee

A shocking new poll by Axios found that not only do majorities of Americans now believe in socialist-style policies such as the government providing universal health care and free college, but even greater numbers of young people believe that (they’ve yet to learn the hard way that “you get what you pay for.”) Even worse, 49.6% of Millennials and Gen X’ers say they’d prefer to live in a socialist country.

Well, good news: you don’t have to go to all the trouble of destroying America.  There are socialist countries you can move to right now.  And you probably won’t have trouble finding housing, since so many people who live there now are fleeing from them. 

This is what comes of allowing leftists to take over the education system.  But I also blame it on the demise of record clubs.  Thanks to record clubs, we baby boomers learned by the time we were in high school that no matter what we were promised, nobody gives you six record albums for a penny with “no future obligation.” 

Maybe story this will help bring them to their senses.  It’s not fact and figures and (Heaven forbid) actual history.  It’s the very personal stories of two men whose lives were ruined by socialism.  It’s long but you’ll want to read every word:


Brown says no

By Mike Huckabee

These days, it makes more news when a Democrat decides not to run for President than to run, so… 

Hear ye! Hear ye!  Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown announced that he is NOT running for President in 2020!  He didn’t mention whether this has anything to do with the fact that the Party has charged so far to the left that strategists have just about written off even trying to win Ohio.  He claims he needs to stay in the Senate and fight President Trump’s “phony populism” and pursue his “Dignity of Work” campaign, which sounds a lot like a presidential campaign theme that never made it out of the gate. 

It’s nice that anyone in today’s Democratic Party wants to promote the idea of working at all when the “in” thing is to offer a free government paycheck to people who aren’t even willing to work. But I can’t help wondering how reinstating Obama-era policies is going to lead to the “dignity of work.” Those policies mostly led to the indignity of unemployment checks, disability applications and record food stamp enrollment.  I suppose if you had to hold three part-time jobs because nobody was offering full-time jobs to avoid the crushing Obamacare mandates, then you could claim you had three times the dignity of someone who had only one job, but it sounds like small comfort to me.

Personally, I like the dignity that comes with having a good-paying, full-time job; and knowing that thanks to record low unemployment and strong growth, if you don’t like your job, you can find a better one.  Unless you’re a Democrat who wants to move up to being President.  That job is taken until at least 2024.


"Green Alert System"

By Mike Huckabee

Here’s a good idea that proves politicians can still work in a bipartisan way.  Republican Sen. Joni Ernst and Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan introduced a bill to create a “Green Alert System.”  That’s not an environment measure; it’s an “Amber Alert” style system to help find missing veterans.  Vets who suffer severe PTSD and suicidal thoughts are prone to going missing and can come to harm before the regular police system for finding missing persons even gets into gear.

There’s already a Green Alert system in Wisconsin and an informal one on social media.  This is something that needs to be nationwide.  If the federal government can create a more efficient way to help find missing veterans (and I’d like to see them prove they can), then it deserves bipartisan support.


Thought-provoking video

By Mike Huckabee

There might be an explanation for why AOC babbles transparent hooey whenever she goes off Prompter (for instance, claiming that 40% of the US population makes less than $20,000 a year, and that’s “200 million” people).  Disclaimer: I don’t endorse the claims in this video by the conservative commentator nicknamed (coincidentally) “Mr. Reagan” (Chris Kohls), nor do I dispute them.  But they are certainly thought-provoking.  A lot of people must agree, since it went on YouTube Friday and has already racked up nearly 600,000 views.

    Regarding "Thought Provoking Video"
    How do reporters not confront the wild statements of Rep Cortez when she says "40% of the US population make less than $20,000". The US Census and the IRS put the number of individuals earning less than $20,000 at half that or 20.5%. Further, the number of people working in the US is just a bit over 163MM and that's the highest ever. Where did she dream up that 200,000 number? Did she think everyone in the US, all 335MM, were employed?
    Rep Cortez throws spews forth outlandish statements without challenge. Sadly, too many believe her.
