With boldly anti-Semitic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar making news this week –- along with the conflicted Democrats in Congress who ultimately found it impossible to condemn her anti-Semitism –- I thought it might be good to do a little research and find out more about her.

Going back to October of 2018, shortly before the election that took her to Congress as one of the first two Muslim women ever elected, we find that even then, several questions had followed her about her campaign finances, truthfulness under oath, and even her marriages, with allegations of bigamy and even that she was legally married to her brother for a short time for the purpose of committing immigration fraud. These are issues that first arose in 2016, when she was running for her seat in the Minnesota state legislature.

Manafort sentenced

By Mike Huckabee

Thursday, Judge T.S. Ellis shocked liberal lawyers and pundits by sentencing former Trump campaign aide Paul Manafort to just 47 months in jail on tax and bank fraud charges.  Special counsel Robert Mueller had pressed for a sentence of up to 24 years, which Ellis called “excessive.”  Throughout the trial, Ellis seemed skeptical of Mueller’s team, which has come in for criticism for its heavy-handed approach to leveling multiple felony charges for infractions that have nothing to do with the “Russian collusion” they were appointed to investigate.  He also voiced suspicions that Mueller was using excessive charges to force Manafort to “sing.”

The judge said Manafort had lived an “otherwise blameless life,” which was admittedly rich, considering some of the shady lobbying and consulting dealings he’s had in the past.  On the other hand, if the same legal and moral standards were applied across the Washington lobbyist and political set, we’d have to build a new prison on the Potomac to hold all the lifers.  Not that I would be averse to that.    

For liberals whining that Manafort got off too easy, he’ll face sentencing soon on other charges from a judge who will likely be far tougher on him.  And if they really think that political figures should be held to the harshest standards of the law and not let off too easy, then would you like to talk about Hillary Clinton again?  No?  Didn’t think so.


Carry On

By Mike Huckabee 

I know that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez warned that we have only 12 years before we all die due to the climate change apocalypse, and I wouldn’t want to contradict a renowned scientist like her.  But according to this article, the director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program says we have only a 10-year window to stop global warming before it causes worldwide disaster, melting the polar ice caps, flooding the land, displacing tens of millions of people and destroying the food chain. 

Oh wait, my mistake.  This article was from 1989, and he was saying all that would happen by the year 2000.  Carry on.


Media Bias Headline of the Day!

By Mike Huckabee

Media Bias Headline of the Day!  From the Washington Post’s Eli Rosenberg: “The Senate Just Confirmed a Judge Who Interned at an Anti-LGBTQ Group.  She’ll Serve For Life.”

It’s true that Trump nominee Allison Rushing was confirmed on party lines as a judge on the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, where she can serve as long as she chooses – and considering she’s only 37, that could mean decades of (hopefully, if she doesn’t “evolve”) rulings based on the Constitution rather than someone’s feelings.  But considering that she has a sterling resume that makes her qualified for a top federal court post, any part of which could have been cited more appropriately in the headline, why is she described solely as a former intern for “an anti-LGBTQ group”? 

Because early in her career, she interned for the Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal nonprofit that defends First Amendment religious freedom rights.  Those include such cases as defending the Christian baker in Colorado who was being hounded out of business by the state for declining a job designing a same-sex wedding cake, and defending the right of the Christian owners of Hobby Lobby not to have to provide contraceptives and abortifacient drugs to employees.  By the way, they won both of those cases in the Supreme Court, so one might assume they are skillful attorneys who cite sound Constitutional arguments and not just bigots yelling, “We hate gays!”   

But the Post’s writer prefers to parrot the slanderous “hate group” label put on the ADF by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a once-noble enterprise that in recent years has become America’s best-funded leftist hate group, falsely accusing numerous mainstream religious-based organizations of being hate groups.  It was their designation that inspired an unstable man to shoot up the offices of the Family Research Council.  They also recently had to pay a hefty monetary settlement for falsely branding an organization as an anti-Muslim hate group.  Other lawsuits are reportedly in the works, yet major social media sites are still using the SPLC to identify and ban so-called “hate groups,” some of which have committed no offense other than holding religious or political views the SPLC disagrees with.

For those who’ve read this far and feel I’ve given you “too much information,” I apologize.  I suggest you read the Washington Post, where all you need to read is the headline to know the slant of the story, and information will have nothing to do with it.

Latest Fake News

By Mike Huckabee

It’s too early to say if this is “fake news,” but considering it’s a New Yorker “expose” about President Trump and Fox News (and the New Yorker’s “inside knowledge” of both is about as deep as a flea’s knowledge of calculus), I am highly skeptical.  The accusation is that the late Roger Ailes tipped off Trump about a hostile question that debate moderator Megyn Kelly planned to ask, giving Trump advance warning to have a snappy comeback ready.

Fox denied the allegation, and Kelly has already said Ailes did not oversee her debate prep.  I was also in those debates, and I never noticed that Trump needed any help coming up with snappy comebacks.  Besides, if Fox wanted to help someone by giving them the questions in advance, why not me? I’d actually worked there!  Boy, you think you know who your friends are…

(Disclaimer for the humor-impaired:  That last part is called “sarcasm.” I do not really mean I expected them to give me the questions in advance.  In fact, I’m laughing derisively at the very idea that anyone would do that for anybody.  The people I know at Fox News are professional journalists who would never cheat to promote their preferred candidates. I understand how that concept might be foreign to most of the current liberal media outlets. And sadly, no, that’s not sarcasm.)



Take your medicine

By Mike Huckabee

Like socialism, the anti-vaccination movement is yet another groundless idea that’s taken hold in blue states and is leading to the return of terrible things that we’d nearly eradicated in the last century, such as measles and whooping cough. It’s based on a fear that vaccinations cause autism.  No legitimate study has ever supported that.

Now, Danish researchers writing in the Annals of Internal Medicine report on an exhaustive new study of 657,461 children, 6,517 of whom were diagnosed with autism.  Here’s what they found:

Not only was there no positive correlation between the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine and autism, but children who got the vaccine were actually 7% less likely to develop autism.  Kids who had no vaccinations were 17% more likely to develop autism than kids who did get vaccinated. 

Dr. Saad Omer of Emory University in Atlanta, who co-wrote an editorial accompanying the study, says this adds to a large body of evidence showing that the idea that vaccines cause autism is a myth.  It’s time for the anti-vaxxers to take their medicine and let their kids take theirs.


"Inconvenient truth"

By Mike Huckabee

Here’s an “inconvenient truth” that the left would prefer nobody talk about: Ivanka Trump, who serves as a jobs creation adviser in her father’s Administration, revealed that during the first quarter of fiscal 2019, more Americans re-entered the work force than in any other quarter since the government started keeping track of that number.  For the first time in history, we have more job openings than there are unemployed people, so a stunning 73% of the people who entered the workforce during the last quarter came off the sidelines and weren’t even considered among the unemployed.

If you remember the Obama economy, we often heard claims that the unemployment rate was artificially low because people who had exhausted their unemployment benefits and couldn’t find jobs just gave up looking – which, ironically, meant they were no longer counted among the unemployed.  But there are now so many jobs that even people who couldn’t land a job a few years ago and gave up looking are now coming back into the workforce and getting hired.   

The Wall Street Journal reports that after years of struggle and disappointment, people who previously couldn’t find work are not only finding jobs, but those jobs offer better pay than they used to.  Low-skilled workers, manufacturing workers, women, racial minorities, the disabled, people with less education and even those with criminal records are all among the groups enjoying improved job prospects.  And before anyone plays the “Thanks, Obama” card, it should be noted that manufacturing jobs, for example, are up by 3.5% in Trump’s first two years while they grew by just 0.5% during Obama’s last two years.   

No wonder the left is attacking Ivanka and her dad so viciously.  They’re doing too good a job of helping the private sector create jobs that allow people to earn the maximum paychecks that they can.  That kills demand for the #1 product of socialism: a guaranteed minimum government paycheck.


More destructive than The Rock

By Mike Huckabee

A lot of people are trying to come up with ways to estimate and put into comprehensible terms the gargantuan cost of the Democrats’ “Green New Deal.”  I think I’ve found a way that the average American can grasp.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is famous for his action thrillers filled with apocalyptic special effects, from all the “Fast and the Furious” car crashes up through the destruction of London in “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” through burning skyscrapers, alien and monster attacks, toppling buildings, and worst of all, in “San Andreas,” the entire West Coast decimated by a massive earthquake that collapses Hoover Dam. 

So the Rotten Tomatoes movie site decided to figure up how much we could sue The Rock for in damages if we could blame all the property destruction in his movies on him.  They focused only on his 22 most destructive movies and came up with a tab of just over $12.2 trillion in damages. 

The latest cost estimate on the “Green New Deal” put its cost at nearly 8 times that much. So we’ve finally found something even more destructive than a movie starring The Rock.

    RE: Take your medicine
    I was just forwarded a newsletter from INTERCESSORS FOR AMERICA.
    They had a whole other take on the vaccination issue that needs to be examined...
    Sorry I'm leaving you a book's worth, but as a born-again believer, this is of utmost importance. And yes, I went to every link and checked it all out to be legitimate before copying 1 word of it here...
    ((for the whole letter, go here:
    "Intercessors have been praying for decades for the curse of abortion to be broken over our nation. Shocking news reports and testimonies are revealing the dark and evil realities of this sin, as more people are rising up in prayer than ever before. And now, new evidence is emerging regarding aborted fetal tissue used to manufacture vaccinations that billions around the world have been inoculated with for decades. More than likely, intercessors praying for the overturn of Roe v. Wade have, unknowingly, been vaccinated with this very tissue. This revelation could provide some answers to why our break-through has not yet come.
    Our prayers concerning abortion have legal implications, not only in our nation, but in the High Court of heaven. While we have been petitioning our Righteous Judge on behalf of these murdered children, the accuser of the brethren has been acting as prosecutor against the saints (Zech 3:1-4). By keeping us in the dark regarding the true source of these vaccinations, he has been charging us with complicity in abortion, thus disqualifying our spiritual authority in prayer. Until we are properly informed and answer these charges brought against us, our prayers will have limited effect.
    Vaccines began with taking life.
    Most vaccines commonly administered to both adults and children today contain cells derived from the lungs of an aborted girl (named WI-38 at 4 months gestation) and/or an aborted boy (named MRC-5 at 3 months gestation). It is likely that many Americans do not know that vaccines began with taking life."
    "Since 1963, these two fetal cell lines have served as components in vaccines for Measles, Adenovirus, Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertusis, Polio, Haemophilus influenza type b (HIB), Hepatitis A, Measles, Mumps and Rubella, Varicella (Chickenpox), Rabies, and Shingles. Most people who have received these shots have also received the cellular remains of aborted babies WI-38 or MRC-5, or both.
    2) open a ‘find’ (Control F) window,
    3) and type in: human diploid
    4) and hit ‘Highlight All’
    5) repeat type in: WI-38
    6) and hit ‘Highlight All’ )))
    The cell lines of WI-38 & MRC-5 were extracted from their lungs, which would have otherwise held the breath of God."
    "In 2016, a United States Congressional Commission studied the use of aborted fetal tissue in medical products and reported to the American public they were not used in vaccines. This is not true. A quick review of the packet insert for the Measles, Mumps & Rubella (MMR) vaccine on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) website demonstrates that WI-38 is clearly listed in the second paragraph as an “ingredient.”(( "Meredith Wadman wrote this fact check article of the Congressional report for Science Magazine in agreement that current vaccines do still contain human diploid cell lines derived from the lungs of WI-38 and MRC-5. Here is the list of the current CDC vaccine ingredients as of June 2018. ((SEE 1) ABOVE FOR LINK))
    The technique developed in America was taught to the nations. These cell lines have been used in “billions upon billions of doses of vaccines.”
    What are the ramifications of an entire nation (and world) that has profited by health or monetarily on the purposeful demise of an innocent child? Are our hands free of blood because it was for the greater good? Does it sooth our conscience that this began long ago and what’s done is done?
    The doctrine of the shedding of innocent blood tells us that there is always a consequence for this taking of life. In Ezekiel 35:6, God says, “[B]ecause you did not hate bloodshed, therefore blood will pursue you.” Bloodshed is pursuing this generation and will continue to do so until we hate abortion and remove it—wherever it occurs.
    This revelation of the source of our immunizations may not be new information to scientists, but to the majority of us it is, and it is consequential.
    It is time to incorporate this side of the abortion issue into our conversations as believers. If Abel’s innocent blood cried out to the Lord from a field, what sound do these two children make before the Lord after being injected into almost every person on earth? When God’s people even unknowingly sinned, they were still held into account. Now that we are aware, we can go about the business of recognizing and repenting of this national sin, our personal part of it, and restore right standing before the Father as we pray for the end of abortion in America. His Word tells us that if we confess – whether corporately or individually, He is faithful and just to forgive because His steadfast love for all of us endures forever. (1 Jn 1:9)
    How do we reconcile and move forward?
    1. STOP Please pray that the abuse and sale of the remains of aborted children for medical products and research will cease.
    2. REPENT Please pray for God to provide the gift of repentance to all who participated in the development of this practice from the researchers to the policy makers both in our country and globally.
    3. PROTECT Please pray for state and federal lawmakers to restore and protect religious freedom so Americans can make all personal health decisions based upon what they discern as they seek the Lord in Spirit, in Truth and in His Holy Word.
    4. MOVE FORWARD Pray for scientists to develop new, ethical treatments for diseases/disorders and for consumers to demand ethical alternatives.

    5. CLEANSE One day prior to New York enacting the late-term abortion law, a group of individuals stood in the gap for all 50 states by reading the entire Bible cover to cover as a cleansing representation. If you would like to stand in the gap for your state, learn more about this ongoing initiative here. Or learn more about the cleansing power of Christ’s blood with our daily devotional on the blood of Christ by Derek Prince. Sign up to receive the free devotion in your inbox by clicking here.
    A Prayer for Cleansing...
    Lord, I acknowledge that I may have participated in receiving or directing others to receive an immunization that contains fetal tissue from an aborted child. I ask for your forgiveness in my participation in using that innocent blood-shed to inoculate against disease. Cleanse me from any consequence or curse, and restore my standing before you by the cleansing power of the blood of Jesus Christ. Thank you for your forgiveness. AMEN.
    Deuteronomy 28"
    I understand your frustration with sick people infecting others, and I also get that if I was faced with a rabies bite and only had access to the shot with the cells that I would probably take it...
    The Vatican released a letter on this topic as well:

    Why, after the advances we've made in medicine, have we not gotten past this, and how much of it is because the drug companies are satisfied with the status quo?
    Can you please take all of this information and bring it to President Trump?

    Thank you for reading this, and seeking God about this.
    Thank you for all you do.

    Dear Gov. Huckabee: In response to your article about vaccines, I am hoping you will read another source of information. The AAPS posted an excellent article: Thank you for your balanced reporting. I am keeping up with current events for the first time in my life--and I am turning 66 this year!

    I noticed your source for the anti-vaccine story was NBC News. That in itself is concerning, especially if it is a controversial subject, backed by government studies or pharmaceutical companies are involved, but now I see google and facebook, (two unassailable bastions of truth) have also jumped on the bandwagon and will start censoring anti-vaccine viewpoints. The alarm bells should be starting to go off for anyone who has observed these organizations past practices concerning freedom of speech and the truth. Pharmaceutical companies are driven by profit. Breast cancer risk is doubled for women on HRT, 41% increased risk for stroke and there is a 29% increased risk for heart attack. Vioxx caused thousands of deaths from heart attack and stroke before it was finally removed from the market. Evidence surfaced that Merck had withheld information and even doctored reports on its dangers years before. As of November 2007, Merck had agreed to pay $4.85 billion to settle approximately 27,000 cases from victims claiming injury or death of a family member using Vioxx. While this is a huge sum of money, in reality it represents less than one year’s profits for Merck. Merck, is the manufacturer of the MMR vaccine and is currently embroiled in two lawsuits for falsifying data on the effectiveness of the mumps vaccine. One of these lawsuits was brought by two of its own scientists. Just another example of lying and fraud perpetuated by drug companies with regard to vaccination.
    All vaccines are loaded with chemicals and heavy metals Here is a list of the damaging ingredients in vaccines on the market today verified either by independent testing and/or listed on vaccine inserts:
    Nagalase, squalene, polysorbate 80, glyphosate (Roundup), e-coli, MSG, antifreeze, phenol (used as a disinfectant), formaldehyde (cancer causing and used to embalm), aluminum (associated with alzheimer’s disease and seizures), glycerin (toxic to the kidney, liver, can cause lung damage, gastrointestinal damage and death), lead, cadmium, sulfates, yeast proteins, antibiotics, acetone (used in nail polish remover), neomycin and streptomycin. And the ingredient making the press is thimerosol (more toxic than mercury, a preservative still used in many vaccines, not easily eliminated, can cause severe neurological damage as well as other life threatening autoimmune disease).
    These vaccines are grown and strained through animal or human tissue, like monkey and dog kidney tissue, chick embryo, calf serum, human diploid cells (the dissected organs of forcibly aborted fetuses), pig blood, horse blood and rabbit brain.
    Recent vaccine testing results published in January 2017 revealed that ALL of them are contaminated with heavy metals not declared on the ingredients list or in the product leaflets. In another round of vaccine testing conducted in Germany, the vaccines were found to be contaminated with the following:
    ALL vaccines tested contained MERCURY in small amounts (even ones claimed “mercury free”).
    Half the vaccines contained toxic, carcinogenic nickel in small amounts.
    Slightly over 1/3 of the tested vaccines contained small amounts of arsenic.
    Over 90% of the tested vaccines contained uranium (yes, that uranium).
    ALL tested vaccines contain minor traces of aluminum, even if not labeled. Gardasil, Gardasil 9 and Synflorix contain TWICE as much aluminum as indicated.
    Aluminum content in so-called attenuated vaccines is around 1000-6000 times above the safe limits for drinking water! How can they be safe? Aluminum adjuvants commonly used in vaccines have been identified by immunologists as a trigger for later development of food allergies in children.
    A comprehensive survey of nearly 12,000 children in the USA and Europe was conducted in 2010. The research revealed the truth about the health of vaccinated vs unvaccinated kids. The conclusion? Vaccinated children are more chronically ill than unvaccinated children with rates for autism, ear infections, ADHD, asthma and allergies as much as 30% higher than unvaxed children.
    Another large comparative study of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children published in May 2017 unearthed similar findings.
    It’s not just physical illness that plagues vaccinated children either. Research out of Yale and Penn State demonstrated a strong association between vaccination and mental illness in children. 95,000 children were analyzed by the Department of Public Health Science at the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine and Yale University. A strong association between children receiving vaccinations and then immediate development of brain-related autoimmune and inflammatory disorders: ADHD, OCD, anxiety, depression, bipolar, anorexia, and chronic tic disorder was found.
    Many foreign countries have confirmed problems with vaccines and changed their laws.
    It’s not just parents that are rebelling against vaccines, medical doctors and nurses are too. There is much evidence that anti-vaxxers are not kooks. Here are a few books by doctors to back that up.
