The House voted 420-0 for Robert Mueller’s final report to be released publicly (four Republicans voted “present.”)

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler declared, “It is important that Congress stand up for the principle of full transparency.” That, of course, is pure, USDA Grade-A baloney. House Democrats have little use for transparency about their own offices, taxes or finances. They just want anything that might prove damaging or embarrassing to President Trump waved around in public like a giant foam finger. As for their claims that the report must be made public to “clear up any questions,” that’s also a load of cheap luncheon loaf. Before even seeing the report, Adam Schiff has already declared that he won’t accept it and will keep launching more investigations anyway.

With gratitude,

New Zealand terrorist attack

By Mike Huckabee

Our prayers and condolences for the many victims of the terrorist attacks on two mosques in New Zealand Thursday. Four people are in custody, and 49 are dead with over 20 more wounded.

Details are still sketchy, but the shooting suspect reportedly called himself an “eco-fascist.” The media are describing him as a “rightwing extremist,” but he wrote a bizarre, 74-page manifesto combining radical ideas across the political spectrum: 

It’s a completely crazy hodgepodge of radical ideas, encompassing racism, environmentalism (the world is being destroyed by overpopulation by the “wrong” people), anti-immigrant sentiment, admiration for Chinese authoritarian communism, hatred of capitalism and free markets, and more contradictory far-right and far-left lunacy.

Ironically, he also hoped these attacks would spur more gun control laws, but at one of the mosques, a would-be victim surprised the attacker by pulling a gun and he ran away. At the other mosque, nobody was armed, so the shooting went on longer and three times as many people died.


Flipped standards

By Mike Huckabee

Further proof that liberals love reporters when they’re acting as attack dogs on the right, but if they don’t act like lap dogs to the left, they want the press neutered.

It’s always been a source of both frustration and amusement to me to watch the switch get flipped on standards whenever power changes hands in Washington. This used to be limited to a few issues like the homeless being a national crisis under Republicans and disappearing from the news the second a Democrat was elected. Now, it covers a whole range of topics:

Women accusing Clinton of sexually harassing and raping them? It’s his private sex life, and they’re bimbos not worth listening to. (FLIP!) Women accusing Trump of trying to kiss them? Impeach him!

Obama’s DOJ getting secret warrants to spy on reporters’ private communications to discover their sources? National security. (FLIP!) Trump criticizing the media for running negative fake stories against him? An unconstitutional assault on freedom of the press!

This is why it’s said that in Washington, if it weren’t for double standards, there’d be no standards at all.


Facebook’s pesky “algorithm”

By Mike Huckabee

Conservatives have been complaining for a long time about the social media giants censoring their posts and banning them for vague, subjective reasons.  But it’s not just bloggers and pundits: after the latest Facebook “algorithm” change (to an algorithm that must’ve been created by Al Gore himself), President Trump’s official Facebook page saw a 45% decline in engagements, even though there has been no drop-off in the number of posts (even some of his supporters might wish there were fewer posts, but there aren’t: Facebook just isn’t showing them to people.)

Democrats who secretly delight in this unfair advantage of partisan social media censorship should remember that if they can do it to us, they can do it to them.  Sen. Elizabeth Warren just learned that for herself.  She’s been campaigning on the need to break up the social media giants as monopolies.  Guess what?  It appears that Facebook’s pesky “algorithm” has been taking down her ads about breaking up Facebook, too.

It would be an interesting development indeed (and very scary to the Silicon Valley limousine leftists) if liberals rediscovered their long-dormant respect for freedom of speech after having their own speech rights infringed, and this became an issue with bipartisan support.

Convention politics

By Mike Huckabee

Next year’s Republican Convention will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the Democrats just announced that they have chosen Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  DNC Chair Tom Perez said, “The Democratic Party is the party of working people, and Milwaukee is a city of working people. We saw in this last election what we can accomplish when we come together, invest, and fight for working people, and that was proven right here in Wisconsin.”

It should be note that in the last Presidential election, Wisconsin went for Trump by a hair, shocking all the prognosticators who thought it was a lock for the Democrats.  Hillary Clinton, the candidates of the “party of working people,” the one that “fights” so hard for working people, didn’t even bother to visit Wisconsin after winning the primary.  She infamously dismissed the concerns of struggling blue collar workers by calling them a basket of racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic, xenophobic deplorables.  If the working people of Wisconsin are back to work in the now-booming economy, they can thank their decision to vote for Trump instead of her. 

I hope the good people of Wisconsin take the Democrats’ tourist dollars but don’t swallow their promises to return to the good old days of four years ago, when the working people they fight so hard for were working three part-time jobs to make ends meet.

The link also includes what may be the real reason the Democrats chose Milwaukee: a clip of rocker Alice Cooper from the movie “Wayne’s World” noting that Milwaukee is the only major American city to have elected three socialist mayors.

Incidentally, in private life, Alice Cooper is a Christian churchgoer, a savvy business person and reportedly a Republican.  If it becomes a brokered convention, the Democrats could do a lot worse than nominating Alice Cooper.  And since he’s a man named Alice, they just might feel obligated to do it. 


Laura Ainsworth: "The Brains Behind AOC" working to take over Congress?

By Mike Huckabee

On Monday, Gov. Huckabee offered a link to a YouTube video hosted by a conservative who calls himself “Mr. Reagan” and titled “The Brains Behind Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.” The Governor neither endorsed it nor condemned it, just cited it as something interesting. I had long assumed there had to be some sort of brains behind AOC, as she didn’t seem to have any inside her head. After watching his video a few times, I have to say that his theory is entirely plausible and worth exploring.

Just how does a 29-year-old bartender become the Democratic nominee for Congress from such a densely populated district as hers (the 14th) in New York? We know it had to be because of an organized and very aggressive strategy by “progressive” (as in, radical socialist) Democrats. “Mr. Reagan” asserts that AOC was recruited to run by a group called the Justice Democrats, which he says has a plan to find the “faces” of the new Progressive movement and run them for office around the country, with the ultimate goal of taking over Congress. He believes that AOC is, essentially, an actress, reciting their talking points.



A preview of Loretta Lynch's unredacted non-answers

By Mike Huckabee

We’ve been asking this question literally for years: If the DOJ and FBI had reason to suspect that foreign agents were trying to infiltrate the Trump campaign --- seriously enough to justify getting a warrant to spy on U.S. citizens who were Trump associates --- why on earth didn’t they brief Trump and/or top campaign officials about it?

It seems like the sensible thing for them to have done. But thanks to a new report from investigative reporter Sara A. Carter revealing closed-door testimony given by Loretta Lynch, we now find that our intelligence higher-ups handled this situation in a way that defies logic.



Rep. Collins says THERE WILL BE ACCOUNTABILITY for protecting Hillary

By Mike Huckabee

Republican Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia was just getting started last Friday when he released Bruce’s Ohr’s unredacted closed-door testimony before Congressional committees. On Tuesday, he released Lisa Page’s testimony, close to 400 pages’ worth. And he promises much more to come.

I had some questions regarding his release of the Ohr testimony, as it seemed so easy all of a sudden to release information that had been hidden for many months. Members of these committees have known since late last summer just how the FBI protected Hillary Clinton and persecuted Donald Trump. Why wasn’t the Ohr testimony released sooner? But maybe I’ve been looking a gift horse in the mouth and should just be glad that it was finally done.  Afterwards, there was not so much as a whimper from congressional Democrats over it (they've got other problems right now), so Collins is moving forward and releasing more records. This is happening at last, and should proceed at a steady pace.
