The President of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights was not too impressed with all the preaching about tolerance and inclusion at the Tony Awards from people who have a long history of bullying and threatening Catholics, Christians and Republicans.

------------------------------------

I’ve had commenters who haven’t kept up with what I’ve been writing or saying for the past 10 years or so accuse me of having a “double standard” in commenting on Presidents Trump and Obama.  Unfortunately for them, I have a file of the scripts of my radio shows and podcasts going back to the very beginning of the Obama Administration.  It proves that I gave Obama the same benefit of the doubt as Trump and showed respect for his office from the minute he was elected.  I disagreed with many of his policies, which I predicted would be disastrous (and they were).  I also predicted that by avoiding working with Congress and trying to impose laws and treaties by executive order, he was setting himself up for a future President undoing his entire legacy with the stroke of a pen (Ta-da!) 

 

But from the second Obama was inaugurated, I made sure every first reference to him was written as “President Obama.”  That is the respect due to anyone who holds that office.  I praised him as a good example as a father and husband, welcomed the First Lady onto my Fox News TV show, and when I thought he was doing a good job, I said so. My criticisms were always on policy grounds, not personal; and when he was abroad, I would try to hold any criticism until he was back on US soil. 

 

By the same token, when Trump has done something that made me cringe personally or that I found indefensible, I’ve said so.  Many times, I have defended his policies while questioning his way of presenting them.  But as I’ve noted, the vocabulary of a New York construction boss will never be mistaken for that of a former Southern Baptist minister from Arkansas.  After all, some New Yorkers simply have no concept of what is appropriate to say in a public forum.  Other New Yorkers may even applaud foul-mouthed, Tourette’s-like outbursts, as long as they’re aimed at someone they don’t like.  I guess it’s just a New York thing.

(Incidentally, why is it that every time I’ve seen Robert DeNiro cursing and threatening the President in public lately, I’ve been reminded of this?)

If I’ve sometimes defended Trump by saying the attacks on him were unfair or groundless, it’s because they were.  I’ve seen how the left twists his words in way he plainly never intended, imparting only the worst motives (targeting dangerous, illegal alien MS-13 gang members means he “hates immigrants,” etc.), and then flailed that straw man they created as if they were trying to beat out a mattress fire with a stick.  I’ve also heard him assailed for his blunt attacks on others with no mention that he was viciously attacked first. I saw this from personal experience. 

 

During the 2016 campaign, I observed Reagan’s 11th Commandment and didn’t attack my fellow Republican candidates.  I didn’t call Trump any of those nasty names my competitors did.  And you might have noticed, Trump has always been friendly and respectful to me.  Maybe he just doesn’t like being called “con man” or “Nazi” and fights back when he is.  Wouldn’t you?  People aren’t used to a Republican who punches back.  We’re supposed to be punching bags, and not the kind that pop back up and bust you in the nose when you slug us.

 

One thing that makes me particularly sad (and to be honest, a little furious) is the way the hostility toward Trump among celebrities, politicians and the news media manifests itself in a wish for the country to do badly so it will harm him.  Sometimes this is indirect, such as Nancy Pelosi trying to undermine consumer confidence by dismissing all the great economic news as meaningless.  Other times, it’s overt, such as Bill Maher’s comment that he's wising for an economic collapse.  That’s easy to say when you have Bill’s bank account, but Americans who need a regular paycheck to put food on their family’s table might find that rather selfish.  These people need to remember the words of the Rev. Martin Luther King, who said, “We may have all come on different ships, but we’re all in the same boat now.”

Looking back through my files, I found that upon Obama’s win in 2008, even though I worked hard for McCain and was very concerned about Obama’s lack of experience and far-left ideas, I congratulated him and said we should all pray for his success because he was the President of all of us now and his successes or failures would be those of our entire nation.  On his Inauguration day in 2009, I wrote this:

 

“Our new President faces a staggering array of problems, from the economy to the terrorist threat.  For all the cheering supporters and platoons of advisors, the ultimate decisions and their consequences will fall to him alone.  My hope is that the loyal opposition on the Republican side will work with Obama on areas of agreement and show him the respect a President is due, even when they disagree and vigorously oppose.  After eight years of relentless and often personal attacks on President Bush, Americans could use a good example not only of how to cooperate, but of how to disagree without demonizing.” 

 

We could still use that, now more than ever.  And may I say (with apologies for using such blue language in a public forum):  “Double standard, my foot!”

 

To Maxine Waters, Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bee, April Ryan, Robert DeNiro, Don Lemon, Joy Behar and all the other foaming-at-the-mouth NeverTrumpers: Americans are beyond fed up with the relentless, sneering disrespect of our duly-elected President and his family, and the downgrading and dismissal of his accomplishments.  It’s coming across as childish, selfish and disrespectful to tens of millions of Americans as well.  If you have a disagreement with Trump’s policies, then explain it intelligently and respectfully – you know, like an adult.  Otherwise, we’ll continue to pay you as much attention as we would a toddler who’s been throwing the same tantrum for 18 months.

Tomorrow could go down in the history books, as President Trump meets in Singapore with Kim Jong-Un (yes, it’s still on as of this writing), becoming the first US President ever to meet a North Korean leader.  While the main priority is denuclearizing North Korea, the meeting holds the potential for many historic outcomes, such as finally ending the Korean War, the possible reunification of Korea, or bringing North Korea out of its self-created Dark Age and into the 21st century.  Most astounding of all, the meeting is so important, it might even get CNN and MSNBC to go an entire day without talking to a porn star’s lawyer.  Although that’s probably the least likely scenario.

 

Here are some more last-minute details about how it will go down, including how Trump expects to find out within the first minute whether Kim is serious or not.

 

https://www.westernjournal.com/trump-and-kju-to-have-closed-door-one-on-one-meeting/

 

One odd sidelight of the meeting is the news that Kim is so paranoid of being poisoned that he’s reportedly bringing his own food from North Korea rather than eat the food at a five-star luxury resort.  It seems more likely that if he were going to be poisoned, it would be someone in North Korea who would do it.  Let’s hope that one of the fortuitous outcomes of this meeting is that someday, when we hear someone brought food from North Korea, we won’t have to wonder if that left the rest of the nation without any.

Over the weekend, there was a lot of jawboning and hand-wringing over President Trump’s contentious meeting with other G7 leaders -- frankly, more than it warranted.  Despite all the posturing and bloviating about how outraged they are that Trump is putting America’s interests first for a change, these other nations aren’t going to stop trading with the US.  They're not going to stop buying our innovative products or taking our money.  In the meantime, here are a few basic truths to bear in mind when you're being bombarded with hysterical media coverage:

 

1.  Despite all their utopian talk about globalism and multi-nationalism, all those leaders are there to represent their own interests, too.

 

2.  Becoming huffy and indignant when you’re accused of something (like levying heavy tariffs on American goods) is not a refutation nor even a denial.

 

3.  Nobody in his right mind should take lessons in how to run a nation from Angela Merkel.   

 

4.  Don’t try to put any fake news over on my daughter.

If you have a little time to spend on a very enlightening piece, then check out this article by Columbia University sociology fellow Musa al-Gharbi (stay with me) titled “Race, Gender and Trump: Everything You Think You Know is Wrong” (see?)

 

The author examines all the oft-repeated claims of Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party and the media for why Trump won and Hillary lost (racism, sexism, misogyny, “threatened masculinity,” a “whitelash,” fear of a powerful, outspoken woman, etc.) and debunks them in turn, by comparing them to vote totals and trends in previous elections.  The conclusion: there was really nothing all that extraordinary about the 2016 election beyond the fact that it was a “lesser of two evils” race in which both candidates were more unpopular than usual.  Hillary lost not because of sexism or any of the other myriad failings of the voters that she’s cited, but because of herself: her message, platform and character repelled both women and men. 

 

If you’re tired of how the leftist excuses about the 2016 election are now repeated as if they’re “settled science, then read this article.  And if you’re Hillary Clinton, read it twice.

In case you missed my appearance over the weekend on Judge Jeanine Pirro’s show, here’s a link to a video clip.  The topic was how a once semi-respected news network can rush to the ramparts to defend the honor and integrity (and noble, admirable profession) of a porn star while savaging women who work in the Trump White House, or are the President’s family members, and slandering them as “dead inside.”  My theory of how their “thinking” works can be summed up in two words:  “liberal lobotomy.”

You’ve heard of “too big to fail”?  How about “too big to go on strike”? 

 

UPS employees are threatening to go on strike if a deal isn’t reached on their Teamsters labor contract that expires August 1.  Because of the rise of Internet commerce and so many people being dependent on having everything delivered, UPS drivers now work six days a week and deliver about 19 million packages a day, accounting for 6% of our GDP.   So a UPS strike could seriously harm the economy, in addition to forcing a lot of poor, suffering Americans to actually have to go to the mall. 

 

UPS drivers already make about $75,000 a year, but having moved from working five to six days a week, they realize it won’t be long before deliveries will be seven days a week.  God rested on the Sabbath, but UPS drivers can’t or else people might have to wait more than 24 hours for their Snuggies and Magic Bullets to arrive. Let's all hope this catastrophe can be averted.

The Supreme Court adjourns in late June and won’t be back in session until October.  That means we’re looking at a tsunami of major decisions (25 cases) all within the next couple of weeks.  Here’s a round-up of some of the biggest ones to watch for.  Let’s hope that unlike the case of the Colorado baker, the SCOTUS issues clear, definitive rulings that reinforce the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the separation of powers and doesn’t just muddy the waters even more.

Billionaire George Soros is discovering that despite pouring many millions into American elections, voters are not falling for his attempts to fundamentally transform America into a European socialist state with open borders.  Even the Europeans are rebelling against that.  Soros is so despondent at the Trump-led backlash against his globalist machinations (his ill-gotten cash couldn’t even drag a handful of Soros-approved leftists over the primary finish line in California!) that he lamented to the Washington Post, “Apparently, I was living in my own bubble.”  Oh, if only he were, instead of coming out to meddle all around the world.

 

Soros claims to be horrified that Trump might cause disruptions in the financial system (this from a man who made over $1 billion profit off the 1992 UK financial crisis, becoming known as “the man who broke the Bank of England;” and who has been slammed by no less than Paul Krugman for not only profiting off of currency crises but doing his best to trigger them.)  

 

Soros is so demoralized that in an interview with the Washington Post, he declared, “Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong.”  Personally, I can’t think of better news to start off the week than hearing that everything that could possibly go wrong in George Soros' estimation has.  That’s good news for virtually everyone else.

Just in time for summer, let’s give three cheers to Country Time Lemonade for standing up for the great American past time of kids learning entrepreneurism and good work habits by opening lemonade stands.  In recent years, overbearing bureaucrats and stuffy neighbors have tried to shut the stands down by demanding that police rigidly enforce zoning and licensing laws on children. 

 

Well, Country Time Lemonade is launching an initiative called “Legal-Ade.” They’re offering a crack legal team to help kids fill out paperwork and fight fines.  Under certain conditions, they’ll even reimburse any fines up to $300.  There are more details at the link, along with some great stories and photos about local cops who took the side of the enterprising kids. 

 

Personally, I think anyone who would try to abuse the power of government to shut down a child’s lemonade stand should go suck a lemon.  Then again, these days, forcing a kid to deal with frivolous legal complaints and crushing regulations and permit mandates would probably teach them more about what it’s like to be in business than running the lemonade stand would.  It might also create a whole new generation of Republicans.

Commentary continues below advertisement


 

I’ve been spending some time catching up on reader comments --- you know, I do read them --- and wanted to respond to a few of the overall impressions I’ve been getting.

 

These stood out particularly well on the day my satirical “Black Hole at the DOJ” piece ran, along with the one about Trump’s pardoning of Alice Johnson.  It’s always especially interesting to see responses to pieces like “Black Hole” that use humor to make a point.

 

Thanks to all who express gratitude for my sense of humor.  Many of you wrote to say you appreciate my wit in times such as these; perhaps the note that made my head swell up the most was from Suzanne:  “I am in awe of your intelligence and your amazing sense of humor.”  (Keep those letters coming, folks!)  But the ones that bring me back down to earth are the many that say, essentially, “You know, this would be really hilarious if it weren’t so sad.”

 

Still, if that’s the feeling you came away with, then I count it as successful satire.  Good comedy is based on truth (something the late-night “comics” need to learn), and I don’t have to distort facts to make the point that the DOJ really DOES seem like a Black Hole.  The problem is so serious, my tongue-in-cheek hypothesis of an irresistible gravitational pull might as well be real.  And something has to be done.

 

One letter did warn me to be careful when using satire, referencing the joke Sean Hannity made about destroying emails and phones that the media willfully didn’t “get” and actually took seriously.  Getting the point of that joke would have implied an awareness that Hillary destroyed evidence, so they had to point a finger at Hannity himself.  You know, I’ve wondered if they really are so dumb they didn’t recognize that as a joke, or if they did know it was but thought their AUDIENCE was so dumb, IT wouldn’t know.  Hard to say; there’s so much dumbness on parade.

 

As for the Alice Johnson pardon, there were numerous comments agreeing with me  --- people who understood that this lady has done her time and that the length of her incarceration was wildly inconsistent with that of many hardened criminals.  But then I got to one particular letter, and the tone abruptly changed.

 

The writer prefaced his remarks by expressing doubt that I actually read my letters (again, I do), and then he said, “I would be fascinated to know what you would have written had President Obama commuted Mrs. Johnson’s sentence.  Think you would have been so supportive?  Or would he have been just another liberal (of course) who is ‘soft on crime’?  I think I know the answer, just pointing out that some of us who read your ramblings see the utter hypocrisy of your words.”  He goes on to accuse my audience of the same hypocrisy and adds, “I have been making these points about hypocrisy and the conservatives for years.”

 

Well, I imagine he has.  And here, he accuses me of hypocrisy by assuming I have a viewpoint that I have not expressed.  On the contrary, my view on Alice Johnson’s pardon is absolutely consistent with my overall opinion of the criminal justice system.  If Obama had pardoned this woman, I would have commended him (though likely using one of my favorite sayings:  “Even a broken clock is right twice a day”).

 

But Obama didn’t pardon Alice Johnson.  I’ve linked below to a list of people he DID pardon or grant commutations to on his way out the White House door.  Yikes.

 

We could make a list of President Obama’s actions during eight years in office and President Trump’s after just one year, and I would tell you item-by-item, with very few exceptions, just where Obama damaged this country with his politics and where Trump is trying to fix it.  That’s looking just at the actions themselves, not the individuals or political parties who took them.

 

In an age where partisan double standards have reached an almost incomprehensible level, the person who wrote this comment needs to look closely at those within his own party (is it too presumptive to think he votes Democrat?).  He’ll see the kind of hypocrisy that makes liberals excuse Hillary Clinton for flagrantly destroying evidence –- and much more illegality –- while applauding a special counsel for looking as deep as necessary for as long as it takes to turn up something, anything, on President Trump.

    Governor Huckabee,

    I,too, enjoyed so much your satire on the DOJ and its "Black Hole"! Those papers so oft requested and "lost" have to be somewhere, and the black hole is an hilarious and apt explanation.
    I look forward each day to your updates. Keep up the wonderful work. And, continual kudos to your amazing daughter for the job she does each and every day!

    Mike:

    In the first sentence, of the first paragraph, of tonight's comments you make a common mistake in referring to a Catholic Church with no modifier. There is no mere Catholic (word meaning universal or world-wide i.e. no religious connection mentioned in my dictionary) Church, however, there is a ROMAN Catholic Church headed by the Bishop of Rome or a.k.a. Pope.

    As a Preacher, you should know better, there being several catholic (note no capitalization) churches that share the same apostolic succession as the Romans do. They or may not use the word in their name, however, they are as "catholic" as the Romans. Of course these churches have no allegiance to Rome

    I happen to belong to the Anglican vein of churches (several use the "anglican" word who are not affiliated) which is just as catholic as the Romans. Again a much mis-used term, anglican, as the word merely means "English Church".

    So in the future, please use the proper name ROMAN CATHOLIC.

    Mike I read you often amongst other more serious things I appreciate your sense of right and wrong I would vote for you again to be president, but that said I I thought you were a class act when you withdrew. You have been often a voice of reason in a world filled with the idiocy of the left. It is amazing that we still have an immigration debate. Not one of Trumps immigration orders were unclear or unlawful anyone who had bothered to read the immigration statues would have known this. DACA on the other hand wasn't a legal order because it countermanded immigration law flouting the power of congress even Barack Obama said he didn't have that power before he did it. Now we have Idiots in the Judiciary claiming President Trump doesn't have the authority to end an illegal order. From Hawaii's claim of harm to it's tourism industry Washington's claim of a Muslim ban it would make me think these numnuts couldn't find their way across the street and both were appointed by that great constitutional scholar Obama. Sally Yates wouldn't defend President Trump's order claiming it wasn't lawful U.S. Code › Title 8 › Chapter 12 › Subchapter II › Part II › § 1182 (f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President, says otherwise. Tell Sarah that not all of her audience are morons some of us actually read the back ground before we form an opinion. We almost wish Debbie Wassermann-Schultz was back in charge of the DNC at least back then they were all spouting the same talking point, not making them up as they go.

    Hi Mike,
    I greatly appreciate your many comments bemoaning the many harmful things going on in our society and political circles. I especially appreciate your recent comment about the harm drugs and alcohol do because I believe that alcohol literally occupies a "god" status that is unassailable even though it causes far more deaths and ruins more lives and families than any illegal drug. I would like to ask you to consider re-phrasing one comment. Every mention of the topic I hear puts it as you did, "drugs and alcohol". I think it is more effective to say, "alcohol and other drugs", because some people still deny that alcohol is a drug! Just check Merriam-Webster, it fits! And it is just plain obvious any way!
    Again, I am so glad that you are a respected conservative voice in the U.S., and I love your new show!

    Finally some people started to realize what's going on in the US. I'd like to stress something known only by people like me, who had the misfortune of living their formative part of life in a communist (now former communist) country. According to the Marxist Leninist teachings, there are two ways a transition from capitalism to socialism/communism can take place: 1) revolution and 2)incremental take-over. The drive towards socialism/communism in this country is spearheaded by the rich and famous, who prefer the second option, because a revolution may affect everybody--in one way or another. If this drive succeeds (God forbid!) the American socialism/communism will be the worst ever, because those who wish it already have the wealth and they just want to control everybody else's life. The masses should live in apartments and use the public means of transportation to move around, so that the rest of the country can be used as a back yard by the "elites," who can do no damage to the environment and no wrong in general. The take-over starts with changes to the meaning of words (does anybody remember what the word "gay" used to mean? It was such a sweet and beautiful English word, that many parents used it to name their daughters. Now we are at the point where we have to figure out what the meaning of "is" IS. Then comes the elimination of "offensive" words (offensive for some groups)from the dictionary, and finally comes political correctness, when you have to speak and think in a certain sanctioned way. (Someone defined political correctness as the belief that you can grab a piece of "s..t" by the clean end.) And of course, when all these things don't work as desired then one starts to blame God and Christianity, one tries to change/re-write facts and history and replace the values and beliefs of the Western civilization by restricting or replacing the study and understanding of the contributions left behind by the titans of the western culture and civilization, because they were white men. So why would anybody want to read/study Shakespeare when you have Maya Angelou. The only acceptable white men are Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin.
    . Unfortunately, even the conservative commentators are helping this leftward trend and drive by going along with changing the language and the meaning of words and concepts. For instance:
    • calling the leftists liberals; the leftists are the most illiberal people in the whole world;
    • naming the Democrat party the Democratic party. The Democrat party is the least democratic of all parties registered in the US.
    And the list could go on and on.
    Until we set the foot down and decide that enough is enough we will just help transforming this country into a North Venezuela.

    Dear Mike,
    It has been three years since the SCOTUS decision legalizing same-sex marriage, however there has been virtually no news coverage of the “religion protection clause” contained in Obergefell v. Hodges final ruling. I shared the language of the clause with several local political leaders as well as members of the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights, but none of them want to address the significance of the clause and how it could be used in support of the First Amendment [religion] “free exercise thereof” clause. The language of the “religion protection clause” in Obergefell reads as follows:
    27 Cite as: 576 U. S. ____ (2015) Opinion of the Court
    Finally, it must be emphasized that religions, and those who adhere to religious doctrines, may continue to advo¬cate with utmost, sincere conviction that, by divine pre¬cepts, same-sex marriage should not be condoned. The First Amendment ensures that religious organizations and persons are given proper protection as they seek to teach the principles that are so fulfilling and so central to their lives and faiths, and to their own deep aspirations to continue the family structure they have long revered. The same is true of those who oppose same-sex marriage for other reasons.
    Inserting the clause into the Obergefell decision was intentional and all nine justices concurred with its inclusion. Why is the “religion protection clause” being kept from the public?
    Amazed by His Grace,
    Mrs. Betty Crawford

    Mike,
    I actually wonder if any Liberal Democrat really knows what the word Hypocrisy really means. I have a cousin who calls me a Hyprocrit all the time because I point out the truth about Obama and Hillary. It seems when you really hit any Liberal Democrat with the truth they reside in calling you names. I think they get trapped in the corner with all the lies they get from CNN and Huffington Post so they get confused between truth and lies.
    Let's keep speaking the truth may be one day they will see the light.

    Governor Huckabee:
    Thank you for continuing to keep us updated on the day's events.
    One thing I am most concerned about, and, somehow, it appears that no mention from administration is meeting between Kim Jung Un and President Trump.
    Because Un has planned to exit immediately, I am fearful he will try to murder the President, and the translators.

    Please contact them and ask WHAT precautions have they taken to be sure the President and the translators are safe. Safe always. Especially the translators. Un can just have them wiped out in a second.

    My biggest concern is that he is luring Trump here. He'll kill him. And then we are all at the mercy of China, North Korea, Iran, and Russia.
    Trump is the biggest threat to them that ever walked the earth.

    Please contact him before he goes to this meeting. Get Sara or someone to really check this out before we loose our only God-send.

    Please.

    Do not want to sound ridiculous but this is weighing on my mind. Heavily.

    Sincerely,

    Linda Leidy 610-337-4064

    Dear Mr. Huckabee, I absolutely love your stories and comments AND your daughter! I do not agree with everything that President Trump has said and done but for the most part he has and is doing exactly what we elected him to do! As for Hillary and Obama, I wish every day they would get their just rewards for the horrific damage they have done to this country. And I pray every day for the idiot liberals to wake up and STOP demonizing President Trump. Now if we could just get Robert Mueller to stop with the whole Russia thing we could save a heck of a lot of money and get the national debt down to a less scary level. God Bless you Mr. Huckabee!

    Just read your response to your responses. It is obvious that you do read the comments and aren't afraid to discuss the issues of both sides! The writer's comments about Republican hypocrisy only confirms my opinion that Democrats have always and still " talk out of both sides of their mouth". They bemoan human rights issues, yet support abortion; want equal rights for all, except special interest groups; criticize government spending, while encouraging more government; the list goes on and on.

    I also would like your opinion on former Barack Obama's quote from the new book:"Maybe we pushed too far,” the president continued. “Maybe people just want to fall back into their tribe. Being from Eastern Kentucky, that turn of phrase sounds so odd to me. What does he mean? Fall back into their tribe?

    Keep up the good work! I so enjoy your commentaries. You can turn a phrase like no other!

    Dear Mr. Huckabee,
    First I want you to know how awesome I think you and your beautiful daughter Sarah are. Now let me tell you why the left is doing everything they can to take down our outstanding President....they are so afraid of ALL his accomplishments (not to mention in the short time span President Trump has been in the White House). They know if the independent voting block continues to see what our President is accomplishing, they will overwhelmingly vote President Trump in for his second term. I actually believe many blacks are taking notice too that they are better off with President Trump at the healm than what they ever got under 8 ugly years with Obama.....now that REALLY scares the left! The leaders of the Democratic Party are truly pathetic! I actually think that the establishment on both sides of the isle are stunned that a business man could come to Washington and ‘change the world’. They see that the American people will NO longer except nor tolerate the deceit and illegal activity they have been allowed to do for way too long and that they (the establishment) really are no longer relevant as they once were in our democracy. America, because of President Donald Trump will continue to be a stronger and a more respected county around the world....all because of a billionaire businessman who knew that America’s best days where ahead of her! ??????????
    Just my thoughts,
    Patty from Colorado

That is why I genuinely value your thoughts and especially your incredible humor! Hugh level humor is a classic sign of giftedness and your humor is a definite example! Gifted individuals also self-actualize to a higher level of existential insight and your deep conservative values and religious perspective is again a sign of your inspired perspective. Plus your music passion is delightful! Keep being you and being behind the scenes ready to help the president fulfill his destiny. He also demonstrates so many gifted characteristics!

    Mr. Huckabee, I just want to take a moment to write and let you know how much I admire you. I read today's post (June 11th) and your response to the person who challenged your motives on the pardoning of Alice Johnson. You handle yourself quite well, must be where Sara gets it from, when faced with those whose goal is to cause controversy. Thank you for your part in being a voice of reason. May God continue to lift you up above all of the negativity.

    Yes I do read your comments on the issues , God Bless you Mike you are a refreshing change to some of the things that come out on television these days. I am so happy that Our President pardoned Alice Johnson . She certainly didn't deserve to spend 22 years for her crime .Thank God we have a Man in Office that see's whats wrong with our government and he is taking steps to rectify the situations. It makes me sick to see how the media and so called actors treat him . They should be ashamed of themselves of course that would mean they had feelings and personally I think they don't have the brains the Good Lord gave an ant.... Your daughter is a sweetheart and it's a shame how she is treated also. She tells them what she thinks and well she should...Keep up the good work for all republicans . Love your show !!!!!!

    They will call evil good and good evil. That's the insanity of the Democratic (Communist) party at this point. They are no more aisles to cross because they have dug a moat in between us. They literally cannot understand us because God has confused their thinking. He gave them over to a depraved mind so they cannot understand. Kind of like King Nebuchadnezzar. (had to use spell check on that one). I know you know all this, but anyway....I too really appreciate your sense of humor. It reminds me of my brother's and somewhat my husband's. You do have extreme wit and intelligence which is the same reason people like to listen to Rush. You have similarities to Rush. :)

    I read your Newsletter all the time and forward to all my friends, and even Cut/Paste some of the Commentaries and post them on my Facebook page where they can be seen by the Public (I put in Huck says:), but I remove your name (So Sorry) when I email them, because I hope my more Liberal (Democrat) friends will read it without deleting the moment they see your name (yikes hate to say that). I hate to do this, but I think everyone should read your well written and humorous Comments on Important issues. I hear positive things back from quite a few people and for some it might be the only "News Bits" (as I call them) from a Conservative perspective they read, I sure enjoy reading them tremendously, (adore your wit and satire) and since I don't watch "regular" TV any longer (only streaming TV and FB) many times I am enlightened about something I didn't quite know about. It is people like you, Hannity, Judge Jeanine, Allan West, O'Reilly, Levin, Limbaugh and others that "We the People" (as I call "us" Conservatives) depend on giving us the true facts of what is going on, and we are grateful that despite the constant negative Media attention, you and others continue to put yourself out there and speak the truth, if we didn't have people like you and our President Trump, this Country would be lost. I recently became a US Citizen (the right way) although I have lived in this Country for 33 years (long story) so now I can let my voice be heard (voting) as well. I grew up in Denmark (Socialist/Democratic/Liberal) but never belonged to a Party there, (didn't agree with any of them and wasn't interested in Politics when I was young) so I know a thing or two about what's at stake here! By the way, someone should look into changing the rules on people who can vote, cause I just found out that when you register to vote on line (at least in my Liberal run State of OR) they take you on your "word" but there are no checking if the person is a Citizen or not, and if you are willing to lie you can get away with it easily, no wonder why so many illegals and "dead" people are able to vote for the Democrats! Please tell your Daughter Sarah that she is doing a Great job and in fact are the very best we've ever had (I think) in this position, and keep doing what she is doing and "We the People" are always cheering her on. She must have grown "thick skin" like you, and I admire her courage to stand up there and take "the heat" all the time, I know it can't be easy especially for a Woman and a Mother to deal with the kind of "attacks" she is constantly dealing with! I know you both have "Faith" and that is part of what sustains you, and am sure a close Family unity is another factor, and then off course the righteousness of helping save our Country from total ruin, so PLEASE keep doing what you are doing to enlighten the close/narrow minded so called "Democrats" and the rest of us who are able to see clearly what is happening to this World of ours (and are still flabbergasted at the sheer idiocy and stupidity of the leftist Libtarts)!

The President of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights was not too impressed with all the preaching about tolerance and inclusion at the Tony Awards from people who have a long history of bullying and threatening Catholics, Christians and Republicans.

 

http://www.eurasiareview.com/11062018-hypocrites-shine-at-tony-awards-oped/

------------------------------------

I’ve had commenters who haven’t kept up with what I’ve been writing or saying for the past 10 years or so accuse me of having a “double standard” in commenting on Presidents Trump and Obama.  Unfortunately for them, I have a file of the scripts of my radio shows and podcasts going back to the very beginning of the Obama Administration.  It proves that I gave Obama the same benefit of the doubt as Trump and showed respect for his office from the minute he was elected.  I disagreed with many of his policies, which I predicted would be disastrous (and they were).  I also predicted that by avoiding working with Congress and trying to impose laws and treaties by executive order, he was setting himself up for a future President undoing his entire legacy with the stroke of a pen (Ta-da!) 

 

But from the second Obama was inaugurated, I made sure every first reference to him was written as “President Obama.”  That is the respect due to anyone who holds that office.  I praised him as a good example as a father and husband, welcomed the First Lady onto my Fox News TV show, and when I thought he was doing a good job, I said so. My criticisms were always on policy grounds, not personal; and when he was abroad, I would try to hold any criticism until he was back on US soil. 

 

By the same token, when Trump has done something that made me cringe personally or that I found indefensible, I’ve said so.  Many times, I have defended his policies while questioning his way of presenting them.  But as I’ve noted, the vocabulary of a New York construction boss will never be mistaken for that of a former Southern Baptist minister from Arkansas.  After all, some New Yorkers simply have no concept of what is appropriate to say in a public forum.  Other New Yorkers may even applaud foul-mouthed, Tourette’s-like outbursts, as long as they’re aimed at someone they don’t like.  I guess it’s just a New York thing.

 

http://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/391593-robert-deniro-says-f-trump-gets-standing-ovation-at-tony-awards

 

(Incidentally, why is it that every time I’ve seen Robert DeNiro cursing and threatening the President in public lately, I’ve been reminded of this?)

 

http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/001/044/247/297.png

 

If I’ve sometimes defended Trump by saying the attacks on him were unfair or groundless, it’s because they were.  I’ve seen how the left twists his words in way he plainly never intended, imparting only the worst motives (targeting dangerous, illegal alien MS-13 gang members means he “hates immigrants,” etc.), and then flailed that straw man they created as if they were trying to beat out a mattress fire with a stick.  I’ve also heard him assailed for his blunt attacks on others with no mention that he was viciously attacked first. I saw this from personal experience. 

 

During the 2016 campaign, I observed Reagan’s 11th Commandment and didn’t attack my fellow Republican candidates.  I didn’t call Trump any of those nasty names my competitors did.  And you might have noticed, Trump has always been friendly and respectful to me.  Maybe he just doesn’t like being called “con man” or “Nazi” and fights back when he is.  Wouldn’t you?  People aren’t used to a Republican who punches back.  We’re supposed to be punching bags, and not the kind that pop back up and bust you in the nose when you slug us.

 

One thing that makes me particularly sad (and to be honest, a little furious) is the way the hostility toward Trump among celebrities, politicians and the news media manifests itself in a wish for the country to do badly so it will harm him.  Sometimes this is indirect, such as Nancy Pelosi trying to undermine consumer confidence by dismissing all the great economic news as meaningless.  Other times, it’s overt, such as Bill Maher’s comment that he's wising for an economic collapse.  That’s easy to say when you have Bill’s bank account, but Americans who need a regular paycheck to put food on their family’s table might find that rather selfish.  These people need to remember the words of the Rev. Martin Luther King, who said, “We may have all come on different ships, but we’re all in the same boat now.” 

 

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/bill-maher-admits-rooting-economy-crash/

 

Looking back through my files, I found that upon Obama’s win in 2008, even though I worked hard for McCain and was very concerned about Obama’s lack of experience and far-left ideas, I congratulated him and said we should all pray for his success because he was the President of all of us now and his successes or failures would be those of our entire nation.  On his Inauguration day in 2009, I wrote this:

 

“Our new President faces a staggering array of problems, from the economy to the terrorist threat.  For all the cheering supporters and platoons of advisors, the ultimate decisions and their consequences will fall to him alone.  My hope is that the loyal opposition on the Republican side will work with Obama on areas of agreement and show him the respect a President is due, even when they disagree and vigorously oppose.  After eight years of relentless and often personal attacks on President Bush, Americans could use a good example not only of how to cooperate, but of how to disagree without demonizing.” 

 

We could still use that, now more than ever.  And may I say (with apologies for using such blue language in a public forum):  “Double standard, my foot!”

 

To Maxine Waters, Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bee, April Ryan, Robert DeNiro, Don Lemon, Joy Behar and all the other foaming-at-the-mouth NeverTrumpers: Americans are beyond fed up with the relentless, sneering disrespect of our duly-elected President and his family, and the downgrading and dismissal of his accomplishments.  It’s coming across as childish, selfish and disrespectful to tens of millions of Americans as well.  If you have a disagreement with Trump’s policies, then explain it intelligently and respectfully – you know, like an adult.  Otherwise, we’ll continue to pay you as much attention as we would a toddler who’s been throwing the same tantrum for 18 months. 

 

 ----------------------------------------------------------------------

 



 

Tomorrow could go down in the history books, as President Trump meets in Singapore with Kim Jong-Un (yes, it’s still on as of this writing), becoming the first US President ever to meet a North Korean leader.  While the main priority is denuclearizing North Korea, the meeting holds the potential for many historic outcomes, such as finally ending the Korean War, the possible reunification of Korea, or bringing North Korea out of its self-created Dark Age and into the 21st century.  Most astounding of all, the meeting is so important, it might even get CNN and MSNBC to go an entire day without talking to a porn star’s lawyer.  Although that’s probably the least likely scenario.

 

Here are some more last-minute details about how it will go down, including how Trump expects to find out within the first minute whether Kim is serious or not.

 

https://www.westernjournal.com/trump-and-kju-to-have-closed-door-one-on-one-meeting/

 

One odd sidelight of the meeting is the news that Kim is so paranoid of being poisoned that he’s reportedly bringing his own food from North Korea rather than eat the food at a five-star luxury resort.  It seems more likely that if he were going to be poisoned, it would be someone in North Korea who would do it.  Let’s hope that one of the fortuitous outcomes of this meeting is that someday, when we hear someone brought food from North Korea, we won’t have to wonder if that left the rest of the nation without any.

Over the weekend, there was a lot of jawboning and hand-wringing over President Trump’s contentious meeting with other G7 leaders -- frankly, more than it warranted.  Despite all the posturing and bloviating about how outraged they are that Trump is putting America’s interests first for a change, these other nations aren’t going to stop trading with the US.  They're not going to stop buying our innovative products or taking our money.  In the meantime, here are a few basic truths to bear in mind when you're being bombarded with hysterical media coverage:

 

1.  Despite all their utopian talk about globalism and multi-nationalism, all those leaders are there to represent their own interests, too.

 

2.  Becoming huffy and indignant when you’re accused of something (like levying heavy tariffs on American goods) is not a refutation nor even a denial.

 

3.  Nobody in his right mind should take lessons in how to run a nation from Angela Merkel.   

 

4.  Don’t try to put any fake news over on my daughter.

If you have a little time to spend on a very enlightening piece, then check out this article by Columbia University sociology fellow Musa al-Gharbi (stay with me) titled “Race, Gender and Trump: Everything You Think You Know is Wrong” (see?)

 

The author examines all the oft-repeated claims of Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party and the media for why Trump won and Hillary lost (racism, sexism, misogyny, “threatened masculinity,” a “whitelash,” fear of a powerful, outspoken woman, etc.) and debunks them in turn, by comparing them to vote totals and trends in previous elections.  The conclusion: there was really nothing all that extraordinary about the 2016 election beyond the fact that it was a “lesser of two evils” race in which both candidates were more unpopular than usual.  Hillary lost not because of sexism or any of the other myriad failings of the voters that she’s cited, but because of herself: her message, platform and character repelled both women and men. 

 

If you’re tired of how the leftist excuses about the 2016 election are now repeated as if they’re “settled science, then read this article.  And if you’re Hillary Clinton, read it twice.

In case you missed my appearance over the weekend on Judge Jeanine Pirro’s show, here’s a link to a video clip.  The topic was how a once semi-respected news network can rush to the ramparts to defend the honor and integrity (and noble, admirable profession) of a porn star while savaging women who work in the Trump White House, or are the President’s family members, and slandering them as “dead inside.”  My theory of how their “thinking” works can be summed up in two words:  “liberal lobotomy.”

UPS employees are threatening to go on strike if a deal isn’t reached on their Teamsters labor contract that expires August 1.  Because of the rise of Internet commerce and so many people being dependent on having everything delivered, UPS drivers now work six days a week and deliver about 19 million packages a day, accounting for 6% of our GDP.   So a UPS strike could seriously harm the economy, in addition to forcing a lot of poor, suffering Americans to actually have to go to the mall. 

 

UPS drivers already make about $75,000 a year, but having moved from working five to six days a week, they realize it won’t be long before deliveries will be seven days a week.  God rested on the Sabbath, but UPS drivers can’t or else people might have to wait more than 24 hours for their Snuggies and Magic Bullets to arrive. Let's all hope this catastrophe can be averted.

Broadway gets one annual 3-hour commercial to sell tickets to tourists. This morning, nothing about the winning shows, only about DeNiro cursing Trump and insulting all the tourists who voted for him. That’s some costly raging bull.

Wild theory floating around the Internet: Trump is slamming Canada to signal toughness to N. Korea; make Kim think, “If he’d do this to America’s closest neighbor, imagine what he’d do to us!”

The Supreme Court adjourns in late June and won’t be back in session until October.  That means we’re looking at a tsunami of major decisions (25 cases) all within the next couple of weeks.  Here’s a round-up of some of the biggest ones to watch for.  Let’s hope that unlike the case of the Colorado baker, the SCOTUS issues clear, definitive rulings that reinforce the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the separation of powers and doesn’t just muddy the waters even more.

Billionaire George Soros is discovering that despite pouring many millions into American elections, voters are not falling for his attempts to fundamentally transform America into a European socialist state with open borders.  Even the Europeans are rebelling against that.  Soros is so despondent at the Trump-led backlash against his globalist machinations (his ill-gotten cash couldn’t even drag a handful of Soros-approved leftists over the primary finish line in California!) that he lamented to the Washington Post, “Apparently, I was living in my own bubble.”  Oh, if only he were, instead of coming out to meddle all around the world.

 

Soros claims to be horrified that Trump might cause disruptions in the financial system (this from a man who made over $1 billion profit off the 1992 UK financial crisis, becoming known as “the man who broke the Bank of England;” and who has been slammed by no less than Paul Krugman for not only profiting off of currency crises but doing his best to trigger them.)  

 

Soros is so demoralized that in an interview with the Washington Post, he declared, “Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong.”  Personally, I can’t think of better news to start off the week than hearing that everything that could possibly go wrong in George Soros' estimation has.  That’s good news for virtually everyone else.

Just in time for summer, let’s give three cheers to Country Time Lemonade for standing up for the great American past time of kids learning entrepreneurism and good work habits by opening lemonade stands.  In recent years, overbearing bureaucrats and stuffy neighbors have tried to shut the stands down by demanding that police rigidly enforce zoning and licensing laws on children. 

 

Well, Country Time Lemonade is launching an initiative called “Legal-Ade.” They’re offering a crack legal team to help kids fill out paperwork and fight fines.  Under certain conditions, they’ll even reimburse any fines up to $300.  There are more details at the link, along with some great stories and photos about local cops who took the side of the enterprising kids. 

 

Personally, I think anyone who would try to abuse the power of government to shut down a child’s lemonade stand should go suck a lemon.  Then again, these days, forcing a kid to deal with frivolous legal complaints and crushing regulations and permit mandates would probably teach them more about what it’s like to be in business than running the lemonade stand would.  It might also create a whole new generation of Republicans.

Commentary continues below advertisement


 

I’ve been spending some time catching up on reader comments --- you know, I do read them --- and wanted to respond to a few of the overall impressions I’ve been getting.

 

These stood out particularly well on the day my satirical “Black Hole at the DOJ” piece ran, along with the one about Trump’s pardoning of Alice Johnson.  It’s always especially interesting to see responses to pieces like “Black Hole” that use humor to make a point.

 

Thanks to all who express gratitude for my sense of humor.  Many of you wrote to say you appreciate my wit in times such as these; perhaps the note that made my head swell up the most was from Suzanne:  “I am in awe of your intelligence and your amazing sense of humor.”  (Keep those letters coming, folks!)  But the ones that bring me back down to earth are the many that say, essentially, “You know, this would be really hilarious if it weren’t so sad.”

 

Still, if that’s the feeling you came away with, then I count it as successful satire.  Good comedy is based on truth (something the late-night “comics” need to learn), and I don’t have to distort facts to make the point that the DOJ really DOES seem like a Black Hole.  The problem is so serious, my tongue-in-cheek hypothesis of an irresistible gravitational pull might as well be real.  And something has to be done.

 

One letter did warn me to be careful when using satire, referencing the joke Sean Hannity made about destroying emails and phones that the media willfully didn’t “get” and actually took seriously.  Getting the point of that joke would have implied an awareness that Hillary destroyed evidence, so they had to point a finger at Hannity himself.  You know, I’ve wondered if they really are so dumb they didn’t recognize that as a joke, or if they did know it was but thought their AUDIENCE was so dumb, IT wouldn’t know.  Hard to say; there’s so much dumbness on parade.

 

As for the Alice Johnson pardon, there were numerous comments agreeing with me  --- people who understood that this lady has done her time and that the length of her incarceration was wildly inconsistent with that of many hardened criminals.  But then I got to one particular letter, and the tone abruptly changed.

 

The writer prefaced his remarks by expressing doubt that I actually read my letters (again, I do), and then he said, “I would be fascinated to know what you would have written had President Obama commuted Mrs. Johnson’s sentence.  Think you would have been so supportive?  Or would he have been just another liberal (of course) who is ‘soft on crime’?  I think I know the answer, just pointing out that some of us who read your ramblings see the utter hypocrisy of your words.”  He goes on to accuse my audience of the same hypocrisy and adds, “I have been making these points about hypocrisy and the conservatives for years.”

 

Well, I imagine he has.  And here, he accuses me of hypocrisy by assuming I have a viewpoint that I have not expressed.  On the contrary, my view on Alice Johnson’s pardon is absolutely consistent with my overall opinion of the criminal justice system.  If Obama had pardoned this woman, I would have commended him (though likely using one of my favorite sayings:  “Even a broken clock is right twice a day”).

 

But Obama didn’t pardon Alice Johnson.  I’ve linked below to a list of people he DID pardon or grant commutations to on his way out the White House door.  Yikes.

 

We could make a list of President Obama’s actions during eight years in office and President Trump’s after just one year, and I would tell you item-by-item, with very few exceptions, just where Obama damaged this country with his politics and where Trump is trying to fix it.  That’s looking just at the actions themselves, not the individuals or political parties who took them.

 

In an age where partisan double standards have reached an almost incomprehensible level, the person who wrote this comment needs to look closely at those within his own party (is it too presumptive to think he votes Democrat?).  He’ll see the kind of hypocrisy that makes liberals excuse Hillary Clinton for flagrantly destroying evidence –- and much more illegality –- while applauding a special counsel for looking as deep as necessary for as long as it takes to turn up something, anything, on President Trump.

    Governor Huckabee,

    I,too, enjoyed so much your satire on the DOJ and its "Black Hole"! Those papers so oft requested and "lost" have to be somewhere, and the black hole is an hilarious and apt explanation.
    I look forward each day to your updates. Keep up the wonderful work. And, continual kudos to your amazing daughter for the job she does each and every day!

    Mike:

    In the first sentence, of the first paragraph, of tonight's comments you make a common mistake in referring to a Catholic Church with no modifier. There is no mere Catholic (word meaning universal or world-wide i.e. no religious connection mentioned in my dictionary) Church, however, there is a ROMAN Catholic Church headed by the Bishop of Rome or a.k.a. Pope.

    As a Preacher, you should know better, there being several catholic (note no capitalization) churches that share the same apostolic succession as the Romans do. They or may not use the word in their name, however, they are as "catholic" as the Romans. Of course these churches have no allegiance to Rome

    I happen to belong to the Anglican vein of churches (several use the "anglican" word who are not affiliated) which is just as catholic as the Romans. Again a much mis-used term, anglican, as the word merely means "English Church".

    So in the future, please use the proper name ROMAN CATHOLIC.

    Read this days musings twice and could find nothing to condemn. For an old contrarian that is a feat. Watching the media hate campaign deeply disturbs this Veteran and I'm reminded of George Orwell's brilliant remark " Some of the Ideas are so Stupid only an intellectual could believe them". It seems the media gives credence to his remarks.

    Mike I read you often amongst other more serious things I appreciate your sense of right and wrong I would vote for you again to be president, but that said I I thought you were a class act when you withdrew. You have been often a voice of reason in a world filled with the idiocy of the left. It is amazing that we still have an immigration debate. Not one of Trumps immigration orders were unclear or unlawful anyone who had bothered to read the immigration statues would have known this. DACA on the other hand wasn't a legal order because it countermanded immigration law flouting the power of congress even Barack Obama said he didn't have that power before he did it. Now we have Idiots in the Judiciary claiming President Trump doesn't have the authority to end an illegal order. From Hawaii's claim of harm to it's tourism industry Washington's claim of a Muslim ban it would make me think these numnuts couldn't find their way across the street and both were appointed by that great constitutional scholar Obama. Sally Yates wouldn't defend President Trump's order claiming it wasn't lawful U.S. Code › Title 8 › Chapter 12 › Subchapter II › Part II › § 1182 (f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President, says otherwise. Tell Sarah that not all of her audience are morons some of us actually read the back ground before we form an opinion. We almost wish Debbie Wassermann-Schultz was back in charge of the DNC at least back then they were all spouting the same talking point, not making them up as they go.

    Hi Mike,
    I greatly appreciate your many comments bemoaning the many harmful things going on in our society and political circles. I especially appreciate your recent comment about the harm drugs and alcohol do because I believe that alcohol literally occupies a "god" status that is unassailable even though it causes far more deaths and ruins more lives and families than any illegal drug. I would like to ask you to consider re-phrasing one comment. Every mention of the topic I hear puts it as you did, "drugs and alcohol". I think it is more effective to say, "alcohol and other drugs", because some people still deny that alcohol is a drug! Just check Merriam-Webster, it fits! And it is just plain obvious any way!
    Again, I am so glad that you are a respected conservative voice in the U.S., and I love your new show!

    Finally some people started to realize what's going on in the US. I'd like to stress something known only by people like me, who had the misfortune of living their formative part of life in a communist (now former communist) country. According to the Marxist Leninist teachings, there are two ways a transition from capitalism to socialism/communism can take place: 1) revolution and 2)incremental take-over. The drive towards socialism/communism in this country is spearheaded by the rich and famous, who prefer the second option, because a revolution may affect everybody--in one way or another. If this drive succeeds (God forbid!) the American socialism/communism will be the worst ever, because those who wish it already have the wealth and they just want to control everybody else's life. The masses should live in apartments and use the public means of transportation to move around, so that the rest of the country can be used as a back yard by the "elites," who can do no damage to the environment and no wrong in general. The take-over starts with changes to the meaning of words (does anybody remember what the word "gay" used to mean? It was such a sweet and beautiful English word, that many parents used it to name their daughters. Now we are at the point where we have to figure out what the meaning of "is" IS. Then comes the elimination of "offensive" words (offensive for some groups)from the dictionary, and finally comes political correctness, when you have to speak and think in a certain sanctioned way. (Someone defined political correctness as the belief that you can grab a piece of "s..t" by the clean end.) And of course, when all these things don't work as desired then one starts to blame God and Christianity, one tries to change/re-write facts and history and replace the values and beliefs of the Western civilization by restricting or replacing the study and understanding of the contributions left behind by the titans of the western culture and civilization, because they were white men. So why would anybody want to read/study Shakespeare when you have Maya Angelou. The only acceptable white men are Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin.
    . Unfortunately, even the conservative commentators are helping this leftward trend and drive by going along with changing the language and the meaning of words and concepts. For instance:
    • calling the leftists liberals; the leftists are the most illiberal people in the whole world;
    • naming the Democrat party the Democratic party. The Democrat party is the least democratic of all parties registered in the US.
    And the list could go on and on.
    Until we set the foot down and decide that enough is enough we will just help transforming this country into a North Venezuela.

    Dear Mike,
    It has been three years since the SCOTUS decision legalizing same-sex marriage, however there has been virtually no news coverage of the “religion protection clause” contained in Obergefell v. Hodges final ruling. I shared the language of the clause with several local political leaders as well as members of the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights, but none of them want to address the significance of the clause and how it could be used in support of the First Amendment [religion] “free exercise thereof” clause. The language of the “religion protection clause” in Obergefell reads as follows:
    27 Cite as: 576 U. S. ____ (2015) Opinion of the Court
    Finally, it must be emphasized that religions, and those who adhere to religious doctrines, may continue to advo¬cate with utmost, sincere conviction that, by divine pre¬cepts, same-sex marriage should not be condoned. The First Amendment ensures that religious organizations and persons are given proper protection as they seek to teach the principles that are so fulfilling and so central to their lives and faiths, and to their own deep aspirations to continue the family structure they have long revered. The same is true of those who oppose same-sex marriage for other reasons.
    Inserting the clause into the Obergefell decision was intentional and all nine justices concurred with its inclusion. Why is the “religion protection clause” being kept from the public?
    Amazed by His Grace,
    Mrs. Betty Crawford

    Mike,
    I actually wonder if any Liberal Democrat really knows what the word Hypocrisy really means. I have a cousin who calls me a Hyprocrit all the time because I point out the truth about Obama and Hillary. It seems when you really hit any Liberal Democrat with the truth they reside in calling you names. I think they get trapped in the corner with all the lies they get from CNN and Huffington Post so they get confused between truth and lies.
    Let's keep speaking the truth may be one day they will see the light.

    Governor Huckabee:
    Thank you for continuing to keep us updated on the day's events.
    One thing I am most concerned about, and, somehow, it appears that no mention from administration is meeting between Kim Jung Un and President Trump.
    Because Un has planned to exit immediately, I am fearful he will try to murder the President, and the translators.

    Please contact them and ask WHAT precautions have they taken to be sure the President and the translators are safe. Safe always. Especially the translators. Un can just have them wiped out in a second.

    My biggest concern is that he is luring Trump here. He'll kill him. And then we are all at the mercy of China, North Korea, Iran, and Russia.
    Trump is the biggest threat to them that ever walked the earth.

    Please contact him before he goes to this meeting. Get Sara or someone to really check this out before we loose our only God-send.

    Please.

    Do not want to sound ridiculous but this is weighing on my mind. Heavily.

    Sincerely,

    Dear Mr. Huckabee, I absolutely love your stories and comments AND your daughter! I do not agree with everything that President Trump has said and done but for the most part he has and is doing exactly what we elected him to do! As for Hillary and Obama, I wish every day they would get their just rewards for the horrific damage they have done to this country. And I pray every day for the idiot liberals to wake up and STOP demonizing President Trump. Now if we could just get Robert Mueller to stop with the whole Russia thing we could save a heck of a lot of money and get the national debt down to a less scary level. God Bless you Mr. Huckabee!

    Just read your response to your responses. It is obvious that you do read the comments and aren't afraid to discuss the issues of both sides! The writer's comments about Republican hypocrisy only confirms my opinion that Democrats have always and still " talk out of both sides of their mouth". They bemoan human rights issues, yet support abortion; want equal rights for all, except special interest groups; criticize government spending, while encouraging more government; the list goes on and on.

    I also would like your opinion on former Barack Obama's quote from the new book:"Maybe we pushed too far,” the president continued. “Maybe people just want to fall back into their tribe. Being from Eastern Kentucky, that turn of phrase sounds so odd to me. What does he mean? Fall back into their tribe?

    Keep up the good work! I so enjoy your commentaries. You can turn a phrase like no other!

    Dear Mr. Huckabee,
    First I want you to know how awesome I think you and your beautiful daughter Sarah are. Now let me tell you why the left is doing everything they can to take down our outstanding President....they are so afraid of ALL his accomplishments (not to mention in the short time span President Trump has been in the White House). They know if the independent voting block continues to see what our President is accomplishing, they will overwhelmingly vote President Trump in for his second term. I actually believe many blacks are taking notice too that they are better off with President Trump at the healm than what they ever got under 8 ugly years with Obama.....now that REALLY scares the left! The leaders of the Democratic Party are truly pathetic! I actually think that the establishment on both sides of the isle are stunned that a business man could come to Washington and ‘change the world’. They see that the American people will NO longer except nor tolerate the deceit and illegal activity they have been allowed to do for way too long and that they (the establishment) really are no longer relevant as they once were in our democracy. America, because of President Donald Trump will continue to be a stronger and a more respected county around the world....all because of a billionaire businessman who knew that America’s best days where ahead of her! ??????????

    Mr. Huckabee, I just want to take a moment to write and let you know how much I admire you. I read today's post (June 11th) and your response to the person who challenged your motives on the pardoning of Alice Johnson. You handle yourself quite well, must be where Sara gets it from, when faced with those whose goal is to cause controversy. Thank you for your part in being a voice of reason. May God continue to lift you up above all of the negativity.

    Governor Huckabee, thank you so much for what you do. I live in Arkansas and vote for you twice. Thank you for telling us of George Soros and his troubles. Maybe, just maybe GOD has had enough of that evil-hearted person. Prayers for you, Sarah, your whole family and President Trump, his family and his administration.

    Yes I do read your comments on the issues , God Bless you Mike you are a refreshing change to some of the things that come out on television these days. I am so happy that Our President pardoned Alice Johnson . She certainly didn't deserve to spend 22 years for her crime .Thank God we have a Man in Office that see's whats wrong with our government and he is taking steps to rectify the situations. It makes me sick to see how the media and so called actors treat him . They should be ashamed of themselves of course that would mean they had feelings and personally I think they don't have the brains the Good Lord gave an ant.... Your daughter is a sweetheart and it's a shame how she is treated also. She tells them what she thinks and well she should...Keep up the good work for all republicans . Love your show !!!!!!

    They will call evil good and good evil. That's the insanity of the Democratic (Communist) party at this point. They are no more aisles to cross because they have dug a moat in between us. They literally cannot understand us because God has confused their thinking. He gave them over to a depraved mind so they cannot understand. Kind of like King Nebuchadnezzar. (had to use spell check on that one). I know you know all this, but anyway....I too really appreciate your sense of humor. It reminds me of my brother's and somewhat my husband's. You do have extreme wit and intelligence which is the same reason people like to listen to Rush. You have similarities to Rush. :)

    Gov Huckabee, Enjoy your articles and your show on Saturday Night. Keep up the good work! I would like to refer you to a book about five years old now. "The Boys of Benning" . This was written by 14 OCS Classmates following a 50th reunion, 12 served in Vietnam. This is a life story of guys who are all over 70 years old now. Some of us over 80. I think you would find it very interesting. Regards. Rudy

    I read your Newsletter all the time and forward to all my friends, and even Cut/Paste some of the Commentaries and post them on my Facebook page where they can be seen by the Public (I put in Huck says:), but I remove your name (So Sorry) when I email them, because I hope my more Liberal (Democrat) friends will read it without deleting the moment they see your name (yikes hate to say that). I hate to do this, but I think everyone should read your well written and humorous Comments on Important issues. I hear positive things back from quite a few people and for some it might be the only "News Bits" (as I call them) from a Conservative perspective they read, I sure enjoy reading them tremendously, (adore your wit and satire) and since I don't watch "regular" TV any longer (only streaming TV and FB) many times I am enlightened about something I didn't quite know about. It is people like you, Hannity, Judge Jeanine, Allan West, O'Reilly, Levin, Limbaugh and others that "We the People" (as I call "us" Conservatives) depend on giving us the true facts of what is going on, and we are grateful that despite the constant negative Media attention, you and others continue to put yourself out there and speak the truth, if we didn't have people like you and our President Trump, this Country would be lost. I recently became a US Citizen (the right way) although I have lived in this Country for 33 years (long story) so now I can let my voice be heard (voting) as well. I grew up in Denmark (Socialist/Democratic/Liberal) but never belonged to a Party there, (didn't agree with any of them and wasn't interested in Politics when I was young) so I know a thing or two about what's at stake here! By the way, someone should look into changing the rules on people who can vote, cause I just found out that when you register to vote on line (at least in my Liberal run State of OR) they take you on your "word" but there are no checking if the person is a Citizen or not, and if you are willing to lie you can get away with it easily, no wonder why so many illegals and "dead" people are able to vote for the Democrats! Please tell your Daughter Sarah that she is doing a Great job and in fact are the very best we've ever had (I think) in this position, and keep doing what she is doing and "We the People" are always cheering her on. She must have grown "thick skin" like you, and I admire her courage to stand up there and take "the heat" all the time, I know it can't be easy especially for a Woman and a Mother to deal with the kind of "attacks" she is constantly dealing with! I know you both have "Faith" and that is part of what sustains you, and am sure a close Family unity is another factor, and then off course the righteousness of helping save our Country from total ruin, so PLEASE keep doing what you are doing to enlighten the close/narrow minded so called "Democrats" and the rest of us who are able to see clearly what is happening to this World of ours (and are still flabbergasted at the sheer idiocy and stupidity of the leftist Libtarts)! Sincerely, Linda

The President of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights was not too impressed with all the preaching about tolerance and inclusion at the Tony Awards from people who have a long history of bullying and threatening Catholics, Christians and Republicans.

 

http://www.eurasiareview.com/11062018-hypocrites-shine-at-tony-awards-oped/

------------------------------------

I’ve had commenters who haven’t kept up with what I’ve been writing or saying for the past 10 years or so accuse me of having a “double standard” in commenting on Presidents Trump and Obama.  Unfortunately for them, I have a file of the scripts of my radio shows and podcasts going back to the very beginning of the Obama Administration.  It proves that I gave Obama the same benefit of the doubt as Trump and showed respect for his office from the minute he was elected.  I disagreed with many of his policies, which I predicted would be disastrous (and they were).  I also predicted that by avoiding working with Congress and trying to impose laws and treaties by executive order, he was setting himself up for a future President undoing his entire legacy with the stroke of a pen (Ta-da!) 

 

But from the second Obama was inaugurated, I made sure every first reference to him was written as “President Obama.”  That is the respect due to anyone who holds that office.  I praised him as a good example as a father and husband, welcomed the First Lady onto my Fox News TV show, and when I thought he was doing a good job, I said so. My criticisms were always on policy grounds, not personal; and when he was abroad, I would try to hold any criticism until he was back on US soil. 

 

By the same token, when Trump has done something that made me cringe personally or that I found indefensible, I’ve said so.  Many times, I have defended his policies while questioning his way of presenting them.  But as I’ve noted, the vocabulary of a New York construction boss will never be mistaken for that of a former Southern Baptist minister from Arkansas.  After all, some New Yorkers simply have no concept of what is appropriate to say in a public forum.  Other New Yorkers may even applaud foul-mouthed, Tourette’s-like outbursts, as long as they’re aimed at someone they don’t like.  I guess it’s just a New York thing.

 

http://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/391593-robert-deniro-says-f-trump-gets-standing-ovation-at-tony-awards

 

(Incidentally, why is it that every time I’ve seen Robert DeNiro cursing and threatening the President in public lately, I’ve been reminded of this?)

 

http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/001/044/247/297.png

 

If I’ve sometimes defended Trump by saying the attacks on him were unfair or groundless, it’s because they were.  I’ve seen how the left twists his words in way he plainly never intended, imparting only the worst motives (targeting dangerous, illegal alien MS-13 gang members means he “hates immigrants,” etc.), and then flailed that straw man they created as if they were trying to beat out a mattress fire with a stick.  I’ve also heard him assailed for his blunt attacks on others with no mention that he was viciously attacked first. I saw this from personal experience. 

 

During the 2016 campaign, I observed Reagan’s 11th Commandment and didn’t attack my fellow Republican candidates.  I didn’t call Trump any of those nasty names my competitors did.  And you might have noticed, Trump has always been friendly and respectful to me.  Maybe he just doesn’t like being called “con man” or “Nazi” and fights back when he is.  Wouldn’t you?  People aren’t used to a Republican who punches back.  We’re supposed to be punching bags, and not the kind that pop back up and bust you in the nose when you slug us.

 

One thing that makes me particularly sad (and to be honest, a little furious) is the way the hostility toward Trump among celebrities, politicians and the news media manifests itself in a wish for the country to do badly so it will harm him.  Sometimes this is indirect, such as Nancy Pelosi trying to undermine consumer confidence by dismissing all the great economic news as meaningless.  Other times, it’s overt, such as Bill Maher’s comment that he's wising for an economic collapse.  That’s easy to say when you have Bill’s bank account, but Americans who need a regular paycheck to put food on their family’s table might find that rather selfish.  These people need to remember the words of the Rev. Martin Luther King, who said, “We may have all come on different ships, but we’re all in the same boat now.” 

 

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/bill-maher-admits-rooting-economy-crash/

 

Looking back through my files, I found that upon Obama’s win in 2008, even though I worked hard for McCain and was very concerned about Obama’s lack of experience and far-left ideas, I congratulated him and said we should all pray for his success because he was the President of all of us now and his successes or failures would be those of our entire nation.  On his Inauguration day in 2009, I wrote this:

 

“Our new President faces a staggering array of problems, from the economy to the terrorist threat.  For all the cheering supporters and platoons of advisors, the ultimate decisions and their consequences will fall to him alone.  My hope is that the loyal opposition on the Republican side will work with Obama on areas of agreement and show him the respect a President is due, even when they disagree and vigorously oppose.  After eight years of relentless and often personal attacks on President Bush, Americans could use a good example not only of how to cooperate, but of how to disagree without demonizing.” 

 

We could still use that, now more than ever.  And may I say (with apologies for using such blue language in a public forum):  “Double standard, my foot!”

 

To Maxine Waters, Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bee, April Ryan, Robert DeNiro, Don Lemon, Joy Behar and all the other foaming-at-the-mouth NeverTrumpers: Americans are beyond fed up with the relentless, sneering disrespect of our duly-elected President and his family, and the downgrading and dismissal of his accomplishments.  It’s coming across as childish, selfish and disrespectful to tens of millions of Americans as well.  If you have a disagreement with Trump’s policies, then explain it intelligently and respectfully – you know, like an adult.  Otherwise, we’ll continue to pay you as much attention as we would a toddler who’s been throwing the same tantrum for 18 months.

Tomorrow could go down in the history books, as President Trump meets in Singapore with Kim Jong-Un (yes, it’s still on as of this writing), becoming the first US President ever to meet a North Korean leader.  While the main priority is denuclearizing North Korea, the meeting holds the potential for many historic outcomes, such as finally ending the Korean War, the possible reunification of Korea, or bringing North Korea out of its self-created Dark Age and into the 21st century.  Most astounding of all, the meeting is so important, it might even get CNN and MSNBC to go an entire day without talking to a porn star’s lawyer.  Although that’s probably the least likely scenario.

 

Here are some more last-minute details about how it will go down, including how Trump expects to find out within the first minute whether Kim is serious or not.

 

https://www.westernjournal.com/trump-and-kju-to-have-closed-door-one-on-one-meeting/

 

One odd sidelight of the meeting is the news that Kim is so paranoid of being poisoned that he’s reportedly bringing his own food from North Korea rather than eat the food at a five-star luxury resort.  It seems more likely that if he were going to be poisoned, it would be someone in North Korea who would do it.  Let’s hope that one of the fortuitous outcomes of this meeting is that someday, when we hear someone brought food from North Korea, we won’t have to wonder if that left the rest of the nation without any.

Over the weekend, there was a lot of jawboning and hand-wringing over President Trump’s contentious meeting with other G7 leaders -- frankly, more than it warranted.  Despite all the posturing and bloviating about how outraged they are that Trump is putting America’s interests first for a change, these other nations aren’t going to stop trading with the US.  They're not going to stop buying our innovative products or taking our money.  In the meantime, here are a few basic truths to bear in mind when you're being bombarded with hysterical media coverage:

 

1.  Despite all their utopian talk about globalism and multi-nationalism, all those leaders are there to represent their own interests, too.

 

2.  Becoming huffy and indignant when you’re accused of something (like levying heavy tariffs on American goods) is not a refutation nor even a denial.

 

3.  Nobody in his right mind should take lessons in how to run a nation from Angela Merkel.   

 

4.  Don’t try to put any fake news over on my daughter.

If you have a little time to spend on a very enlightening piece, then check out this article by Columbia University sociology fellow Musa al-Gharbi (stay with me) titled “Race, Gender and Trump: Everything You Think You Know is Wrong” (see?)

 

The author examines all the oft-repeated claims of Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party and the media for why Trump won and Hillary lost (racism, sexism, misogyny, “threatened masculinity,” a “whitelash,” fear of a powerful, outspoken woman, etc.) and debunks them in turn, by comparing them to vote totals and trends in previous elections.  The conclusion: there was really nothing all that extraordinary about the 2016 election beyond the fact that it was a “lesser of two evils” race in which both candidates were more unpopular than usual.  Hillary lost not because of sexism or any of the other myriad failings of the voters that she’s cited, but because of herself: her message, platform and character repelled both women and men. 

 

If you’re tired of how the leftist excuses about the 2016 election are now repeated as if they’re “settled science, then read this article.  And if you’re Hillary Clinton, read it twice.

In case you missed my appearance over the weekend on Judge Jeanine Pirro’s show, here’s a link to a video clip.  The topic was how a once semi-respected news network can rush to the ramparts to defend the honor and integrity (and noble, admirable profession) of a porn star while savaging women who work in the Trump White House, or are the President’s family members, and slandering them as “dead inside.”  My theory of how their “thinking” works can be summed up in two words:  “liberal lobotomy.”

You’ve heard of “too big to fail”?  How about “too big to go on strike”? 

 

UPS employees are threatening to go on strike if a deal isn’t reached on their Teamsters labor contract that expires August 1.  Because of the rise of Internet commerce and so many people being dependent on having everything delivered, UPS drivers now work six days a week and deliver about 19 million packages a day, accounting for 6% of our GDP.   So a UPS strike could seriously harm the economy, in addition to forcing a lot of poor, suffering Americans to actually have to go to the mall. 

 

UPS drivers already make about $75,000 a year, but having moved from working five to six days a week, they realize it won’t be long before deliveries will be seven days a week.  God rested on the Sabbath, but UPS drivers can’t or else people might have to wait more than 24 hours for their Snuggies and Magic Bullets to arrive. Let's all hope this catastrophe can be averted.

The Supreme Court adjourns in late June and won’t be back in session until October.  That means we’re looking at a tsunami of major decisions (25 cases) all within the next couple of weeks.  Here’s a round-up of some of the biggest ones to watch for.  Let’s hope that unlike the case of the Colorado baker, the SCOTUS issues clear, definitive rulings that reinforce the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the separation of powers and doesn’t just muddy the waters even more.

Billionaire George Soros is discovering that despite pouring many millions into American elections, voters are not falling for his attempts to fundamentally transform America into a European socialist state with open borders.  Even the Europeans are rebelling against that.  Soros is so despondent at the Trump-led backlash against his globalist machinations (his ill-gotten cash couldn’t even drag a handful of Soros-approved leftists over the primary finish line in California!) that he lamented to the Washington Post, “Apparently, I was living in my own bubble.”  Oh, if only he were, instead of coming out to meddle all around the world.

 

Soros claims to be horrified that Trump might cause disruptions in the financial system (this from a man who made over $1 billion profit off the 1992 UK financial crisis, becoming known as “the man who broke the Bank of England;” and who has been slammed by no less than Paul Krugman for not only profiting off of currency crises but doing his best to trigger them.)  

 

Soros is so demoralized that in an interview with the Washington Post, he declared, “Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong.”  Personally, I can’t think of better news to start off the week than hearing that everything that could possibly go wrong in George Soros' estimation has.  That’s good news for virtually everyone else.

Just in time for summer, let’s give three cheers to Country Time Lemonade for standing up for the great American past time of kids learning entrepreneurism and good work habits by opening lemonade stands.  In recent years, overbearing bureaucrats and stuffy neighbors have tried to shut the stands down by demanding that police rigidly enforce zoning and licensing laws on children. 

 

Well, Country Time Lemonade is launching an initiative called “Legal-Ade.” They’re offering a crack legal team to help kids fill out paperwork and fight fines.  Under certain conditions, they’ll even reimburse any fines up to $300.  There are more details at the link, along with some great stories and photos about local cops who took the side of the enterprising kids. 

 

Personally, I think anyone who would try to abuse the power of government to shut down a child’s lemonade stand should go suck a lemon.  Then again, these days, forcing a kid to deal with frivolous legal complaints and crushing regulations and permit mandates would probably teach them more about what it’s like to be in business than running the lemonade stand would.  It might also create a whole new generation of Republicans.

Commentary continues below advertisement


 

I’ve been spending some time catching up on reader comments --- you know, I do read them --- and wanted to respond to a few of the overall impressions I’ve been getting.

 

These stood out particularly well on the day my satirical “Black Hole at the DOJ” piece ran, along with the one about Trump’s pardoning of Alice Johnson.  It’s always especially interesting to see responses to pieces like “Black Hole” that use humor to make a point.

 

Thanks to all who express gratitude for my sense of humor.  Many of you wrote to say you appreciate my wit in times such as these; perhaps the note that made my head swell up the most was from Suzanne:  “I am in awe of your intelligence and your amazing sense of humor.”  (Keep those letters coming, folks!)  But the ones that bring me back down to earth are the many that say, essentially, “You know, this would be really hilarious if it weren’t so sad.”

 

Still, if that’s the feeling you came away with, then I count it as successful satire.  Good comedy is based on truth (something the late-night “comics” need to learn), and I don’t have to distort facts to make the point that the DOJ really DOES seem like a Black Hole.  The problem is so serious, my tongue-in-cheek hypothesis of an irresistible gravitational pull might as well be real.  And something has to be done.

 

One letter did warn me to be careful when using satire, referencing the joke Sean Hannity made about destroying emails and phones that the media willfully didn’t “get” and actually took seriously.  Getting the point of that joke would have implied an awareness that Hillary destroyed evidence, so they had to point a finger at Hannity himself.  You know, I’ve wondered if they really are so dumb they didn’t recognize that as a joke, or if they did know it was but thought their AUDIENCE was so dumb, IT wouldn’t know.  Hard to say; there’s so much dumbness on parade.

 

As for the Alice Johnson pardon, there were numerous comments agreeing with me  --- people who understood that this lady has done her time and that the length of her incarceration was wildly inconsistent with that of many hardened criminals.  But then I got to one particular letter, and the tone abruptly changed.

 

The writer prefaced his remarks by expressing doubt that I actually read my letters (again, I do), and then he said, “I would be fascinated to know what you would have written had President Obama commuted Mrs. Johnson’s sentence.  Think you would have been so supportive?  Or would he have been just another liberal (of course) who is ‘soft on crime’?  I think I know the answer, just pointing out that some of us who read your ramblings see the utter hypocrisy of your words.”  He goes on to accuse my audience of the same hypocrisy and adds, “I have been making these points about hypocrisy and the conservatives for years.”

 

Well, I imagine he has.  And here, he accuses me of hypocrisy by assuming I have a viewpoint that I have not expressed.  On the contrary, my view on Alice Johnson’s pardon is absolutely consistent with my overall opinion of the criminal justice system.  If Obama had pardoned this woman, I would have commended him (though likely using one of my favorite sayings:  “Even a broken clock is right twice a day”).

 

But Obama didn’t pardon Alice Johnson.  I’ve linked below to a list of people he DID pardon or grant commutations to on his way out the White House door.  Yikes.

 

We could make a list of President Obama’s actions during eight years in office and President Trump’s after just one year, and I would tell you item-by-item, with very few exceptions, just where Obama damaged this country with his politics and where Trump is trying to fix it.  That’s looking just at the actions themselves, not the individuals or political parties who took them.

 

In an age where partisan double standards have reached an almost incomprehensible level, the person who wrote this comment needs to look closely at those within his own party (is it too presumptive to think he votes Democrat?).  He’ll see the kind of hypocrisy that makes liberals excuse Hillary Clinton for flagrantly destroying evidence –- and much more illegality –- while applauding a special counsel for looking as deep as necessary for as long as it takes to turn up something, anything, on President Trump.

    Governor Huckabee,

    I,too, enjoyed so much your satire on the DOJ and its "Black Hole"! Those papers so oft requested and "lost" have to be somewhere, and the black hole is an hilarious and apt explanation.
    I look forward each day to your updates. Keep up the wonderful work. And, continual kudos to your amazing daughter for the job she does each and every day!

    Mike:

    In the first sentence, of the first paragraph, of tonight's comments you make a common mistake in referring to a Catholic Church with no modifier. There is no mere Catholic (word meaning universal or world-wide i.e. no religious connection mentioned in my dictionary) Church, however, there is a ROMAN Catholic Church headed by the Bishop of Rome or a.k.a. Pope.

    As a Preacher, you should know better, there being several catholic (note no capitalization) churches that share the same apostolic succession as the Romans do. They or may not use the word in their name, however, they are as "catholic" as the Romans. Of course these churches have no allegiance to Rome

    I happen to belong to the Anglican vein of churches (several use the "anglican" word who are not affiliated) which is just as catholic as the Romans. Again a much mis-used term, anglican, as the word merely means "English Church".

    So in the future, please use the proper name ROMAN CATHOLIC.

    Read this days musings twice and could find nothing to condemn. For an old contrarian that is a feat. Watching the media hate campaign deeply disturbs this Veteran and I'm reminded of George Orwell's brilliant remark " Some of the Ideas are so Stupid only an intellectual could believe them". It seems the media gives credence to his remarks.

    Mike I read you often amongst other more serious things I appreciate your sense of right and wrong I would vote for you again to be president, but that said I I thought you were a class act when you withdrew. You have been often a voice of reason in a world filled with the idiocy of the left. It is amazing that we still have an immigration debate. Not one of Trumps immigration orders were unclear or unlawful anyone who had bothered to read the immigration statues would have known this. DACA on the other hand wasn't a legal order because it countermanded immigration law flouting the power of congress even Barack Obama said he didn't have that power before he did it. Now we have Idiots in the Judiciary claiming President Trump doesn't have the authority to end an illegal order. From Hawaii's claim of harm to it's tourism industry Washington's claim of a Muslim ban it would make me think these numnuts couldn't find their way across the street and both were appointed by that great constitutional scholar Obama. Sally Yates wouldn't defend President Trump's order claiming it wasn't lawful U.S. Code › Title 8 › Chapter 12 › Subchapter II › Part II › § 1182 (f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President, says otherwise. Tell Sarah that not all of her audience are morons some of us actually read the back ground before we form an opinion. We almost wish Debbie Wassermann-Schultz was back in charge of the DNC at least back then they were all spouting the same talking point, not making them up as they go.

    Hi Mike,
    I greatly appreciate your many comments bemoaning the many harmful things going on in our society and political circles. I especially appreciate your recent comment about the harm drugs and alcohol do because I believe that alcohol literally occupies a "god" status that is unassailable even though it causes far more deaths and ruins more lives and families than any illegal drug. I would like to ask you to consider re-phrasing one comment. Every mention of the topic I hear puts it as you did, "drugs and alcohol". I think it is more effective to say, "alcohol and other drugs", because some people still deny that alcohol is a drug! Just check Merriam-Webster, it fits! And it is just plain obvious any way!
    Again, I am so glad that you are a respected conservative voice in the U.S., and I love your new show!

    Finally some people started to realize what's going on in the US. I'd like to stress something known only by people like me, who had the misfortune of living their formative part of life in a communist (now former communist) country. According to the Marxist Leninist teachings, there are two ways a transition from capitalism to socialism/communism can take place: 1) revolution and 2)incremental take-over. The drive towards socialism/communism in this country is spearheaded by the rich and famous, who prefer the second option, because a revolution may affect everybody--in one way or another. If this drive succeeds (God forbid!) the American socialism/communism will be the worst ever, because those who wish it already have the wealth and they just want to control everybody else's life. The masses should live in apartments and use the public means of transportation to move around, so that the rest of the country can be used as a back yard by the "elites," who can do no damage to the environment and no wrong in general. The take-over starts with changes to the meaning of words (does anybody remember what the word "gay" used to mean? It was such a sweet and beautiful English word, that many parents used it to name their daughters. Now we are at the point where we have to figure out what the meaning of "is" IS. Then comes the elimination of "offensive" words (offensive for some groups)from the dictionary, and finally comes political correctness, when you have to speak and think in a certain sanctioned way. (Someone defined political correctness as the belief that you can grab a piece of "s..t" by the clean end.) And of course, when all these things don't work as desired then one starts to blame God and Christianity, one tries to change/re-write facts and history and replace the values and beliefs of the Western civilization by restricting or replacing the study and understanding of the contributions left behind by the titans of the western culture and civilization, because they were white men. So why would anybody want to read/study Shakespeare when you have Maya Angelou. The only acceptable white men are Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin.
    . Unfortunately, even the conservative commentators are helping this leftward trend and drive by going along with changing the language and the meaning of words and concepts. For instance:
    • calling the leftists liberals; the leftists are the most illiberal people in the whole world;
    • naming the Democrat party the Democratic party. The Democrat party is the least democratic of all parties registered in the US.
    And the list could go on and on.
    Until we set the foot down and decide that enough is enough we will just help transforming this country into a North Venezuela.

    Dear Mike,
    It has been three years since the SCOTUS decision legalizing same-sex marriage, however there has been virtually no news coverage of the “religion protection clause” contained in Obergefell v. Hodges final ruling. I shared the language of the clause with several local political leaders as well as members of the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights, but none of them want to address the significance of the clause and how it could be used in support of the First Amendment [religion] “free exercise thereof” clause. The language of the “religion protection clause” in Obergefell reads as follows:
    27 Cite as: 576 U. S. ____ (2015) Opinion of the Court
    Finally, it must be emphasized that religions, and those who adhere to religious doctrines, may continue to advo¬cate with utmost, sincere conviction that, by divine pre¬cepts, same-sex marriage should not be condoned. The First Amendment ensures that religious organizations and persons are given proper protection as they seek to teach the principles that are so fulfilling and so central to their lives and faiths, and to their own deep aspirations to continue the family structure they have long revered. The same is true of those who oppose same-sex marriage for other reasons.
    Inserting the clause into the Obergefell decision was intentional and all nine justices concurred with its inclusion. Why is the “religion protection clause” being kept from the public?
    Amazed by His Grace,
    Mrs. Betty Crawford

    Mike,
    I actually wonder if any Liberal Democrat really knows what the word Hypocrisy really means. I have a cousin who calls me a Hyprocrit all the time because I point out the truth about Obama and Hillary. It seems when you really hit any Liberal Democrat with the truth they reside in calling you names. I think they get trapped in the corner with all the lies they get from CNN and Huffington Post so they get confused between truth and lies.
    Let's keep speaking the truth may be one day they will see the light.

    Governor Huckabee:
    Thank you for continuing to keep us updated on the day's events.
    One thing I am most concerned about, and, somehow, it appears that no mention from administration is meeting between Kim Jung Un and President Trump.
    Because Un has planned to exit immediately, I am fearful he will try to murder the President, and the translators.

    Please contact them and ask WHAT precautions have they taken to be sure the President and the translators are safe. Safe always. Especially the translators. Un can just have them wiped out in a second.

    My biggest concern is that he is luring Trump here. He'll kill him. And then we are all at the mercy of China, North Korea, Iran, and Russia.
    Trump is the biggest threat to them that ever walked the earth.

    Please contact him before he goes to this meeting. Get Sara or someone to really check this out before we loose our only God-send.

    Please.

    Do not want to sound ridiculous but this is weighing on my mind. Heavily.

    Sincerely,

    Linda Leidy 610-337-4064

    Dear Mr. Huckabee, I absolutely love your stories and comments AND your daughter! I do not agree with everything that President Trump has said and done but for the most part he has and is doing exactly what we elected him to do! As for Hillary and Obama, I wish every day they would get their just rewards for the horrific damage they have done to this country. And I pray every day for the idiot liberals to wake up and STOP demonizing President Trump. Now if we could just get Robert Mueller to stop with the whole Russia thing we could save a heck of a lot of money and get the national debt down to a less scary level. God Bless you Mr. Huckabee!

    Just read your response to your responses. It is obvious that you do read the comments and aren't afraid to discuss the issues of both sides! The writer's comments about Republican hypocrisy only confirms my opinion that Democrats have always and still " talk out of both sides of their mouth". They bemoan human rights issues, yet support abortion; want equal rights for all, except special interest groups; criticize government spending, while encouraging more government; the list goes on and on.

    I also would like your opinion on former Barack Obama's quote from the new book:"Maybe we pushed too far,” the president continued. “Maybe people just want to fall back into their tribe. Being from Eastern Kentucky, that turn of phrase sounds so odd to me. What does he mean? Fall back into their tribe?

    Keep up the good work! I so enjoy your commentaries. You can turn a phrase like no other!

    Dear Mr. Huckabee,
    First I want you to know how awesome I think you and your beautiful daughter Sarah are. Now let me tell you why the left is doing everything they can to take down our outstanding President....they are so afraid of ALL his accomplishments (not to mention in the short time span President Trump has been in the White House). They know if the independent voting block continues to see what our President is accomplishing, they will overwhelmingly vote President Trump in for his second term. I actually believe many blacks are taking notice too that they are better off with President Trump at the healm than what they ever got under 8 ugly years with Obama.....now that REALLY scares the left! The leaders of the Democratic Party are truly pathetic! I actually think that the establishment on both sides of the isle are stunned that a business man could come to Washington and ‘change the world’. They see that the American people will NO longer except nor tolerate the deceit and illegal activity they have been allowed to do for way too long and that they (the establishment) really are no longer relevant as they once were in our democracy. America, because of President Donald Trump will continue to be a stronger and a more respected county around the world....all because of a billionaire businessman who knew that America’s best days where ahead of her! ??????????
    Just my thoughts,
    Patty from Colorado

That is why I genuinely value your thoughts and especially your incredible humor! Hugh level humor is a classic sign of giftedness and your humor is a definite example! Gifted individuals also self-actualize to a higher level of existential insight and your deep conservative values and religious perspective is again a sign of your inspired perspective. Plus your music passion is delightful! Keep being you and being behind the scenes ready to help the president fulfill his destiny. He also demonstrates so many gifted characteristics!

I am so happy that Our President pardoned Alice Johnson . She certainly didn't deserve to spend 22 years for her crime .Thank God we have a Man in Office that see's whats wrong with our government and he is taking steps to rectify the situations. It makes me sick to see how the media and so called actors treat him . They should be ashamed of themselves of course that would mean they had feelings and personally I think they don't have the brains the Good Lord gave an ant....

They literally cannot understand us because God has confused their thinking. He gave them over to a depraved mind so they cannot understand. Kind of like King Nebuchadnezzar. (had to use spell check on that one). I know you know all this, but anyway....I too really appreciate your sense of humor. It reminds me of my brother's and somewhat my husband's.

    I read your Newsletter all the time and forward to all my friends, and even Cut/Paste some of the Commentaries and post them on my Facebook page where they can be seen by the Public (I put in Huck says:), but I remove your name (So Sorry) when I email them, because I hope my more Liberal (Democrat) friends will read it without deleting the moment they see your name (yikes hate to say that). I hate to do this, but I think everyone should read your well written and humorous Comments on Important issues. I hear positive things back from quite a few people and for some it might be the only "News Bits" (as I call them) from a Conservative perspective they read, I sure enjoy reading them tremendously, (adore your wit and satire) and since I don't watch "regular" TV any longer (only streaming TV and FB) many times I am enlightened about something I didn't quite know about. It is people like you, Hannity, Judge Jeanine, Allan West, O'Reilly, Levin, Limbaugh and others that "We the People" (as I call "us" Conservatives) depend on giving us the true facts of what is going on, and we are grateful that despite the constant negative Media attention, you and others continue to put yourself out there and speak the truth, if we didn't have people like you and our President Trump, this Country would be lost. I recently became a US Citizen (the right way) although I have lived in this Country for 33 years (long story) so now I can let my voice be heard (voting) as well. I grew up in Denmark (Socialist/Democratic/Liberal) but never belonged to a Party there, (didn't agree with any of them and wasn't interested in Politics when I was young) so I know a thing or two about what's at stake here! By the way, someone should look into changing the rules on people who can vote, cause I just found out that when you register to vote on line (at least in my Liberal run State of OR) they take you on your "word" but there are no checking if the person is a Citizen or not, and if you are willing to lie you can get away with it easily, no wonder why so many illegals and "dead" people are able to vote for the Democrats! Please tell your Daughter Sarah that she is doing a Great job and in fact are the very best we've ever had (I think) in this position, and keep doing what she is doing and "We the People" are always cheering her on. She must have grown "thick skin" like you, and I admire her courage to stand up there and take "the heat" all the time, I know it can't be easy especially for a Woman and a Mother to deal with the kind of "attacks" she is constantly dealing with! I know you both have "Faith" and that is part of what sustains you, and am sure a close Family unity is another factor, and then off course the righteousness of helping save our Country from total ruin, so PLEASE keep doing what you are doing to enlighten the close/narrow minded so called "Democrats" and the rest of us who are able to see clearly what is happening to this World of ours (and are still flabbergasted at the sheer idiocy and stupidity of the leftist Libtarts)!
