From the minute President Trump announced that he was declassifying all the documents related to the “Russian collusion” investigation, reaction from his critics has veered all over the map – which is understandable, because that’s what panicked people do.  

One of the more laughable responses came from Rep. Adam Schiff, who declared Trump's order move “un-American.”  This from a man who has been trying to unseat a duly-elected President for two years by claiming he has evidence of Russian collusion that he’s never shown anyone and that somehow, the two-year, $35 million Mueller investigation missed.  Now, he seems to think it’s not un-American for the US government to lie to judges to get secret warrants to spy on American citizens who are working for an opposition political campaign, but it is un-American to let the people know what their government was doing.  I think Schiff might be as unclear on the meaning of the word “un-American” as he is about the word “evidence.”

P.S. Programming note: So that my staff can enjoy the Memorial Day holiday, we will not be sending out the regular topical newsletters on Monday. However, I do have special Memorial Day editions prepared, so please be looking for those.

Memorial Day

By Mike Huckabee

I hope you’re enjoying your long Memorial Day weekend so far, and that it’s both a fun and safe time for your family.  Remember, Memorial Day means more than picnics, pool parties and sales.  It’s a time when we honor the many men and women of the United States military who, across more than two centuries, have made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can enjoy our freedoms in peace and safety.  Please remember to fly your flag, decorate a veterans’ grave, purchase a poppy from the American Legion, donate or volunteer for a veterans’ charity, or do whatever you can to show your appreciation for all that they have done for us.


"Huckabee" Preview

By Mike Huckabee

I also hope that you can make time in your weekend for a special Memorial Day edition of “Huckabee” on TBN.  Mat Staver of the Liberty Counsel will tell us about the dangerous consequences for religious freedom and women’s rights from the recently House-passed (and misleadingly named) “Equality Act.” Jay DeMarcus of the country supergroup Rascal Flatts will tell us about his frank and inspiring new memoir.  You’ll meet a Huck’s Hero who’s using the wilderness survival skills he learned in the military to save civilians and help his fellow vets.  There’ll be plenty of laughs from our “In Case You Missed It” stories and hilarious comedian James Gregory.  Wink and Sandy Martindale will drop by for a special musical tribute to veterans.  And we’ll top it off with a 40th anniversary salute to one of America’s favorite TV families of all time, “The Dukes of Hazzard,” with Tom Wopat, Catherine Bach and Ben Jones, plus a special mystery guest star during the musical finale. 

It’s all coming your way tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, only on TBN. To find your local TBN channel and stream previous episodes online, visit


Troops deployed

By Mike Huckabee

With Iran ramping up tensions over sanctions, President Trump has ordered about 1500 troops to the area.  They will reportedly be purely for defensive purposes, such as missile defense, surveillance and keeping shipping lanes open.  And about 600 of the troops are already in the region, so fewer than 1,000 new troops will be deployed.

Of course, all this is contingent on whether the Democrats can find a liberal federal judge to declare that Trump isn’t allowed to send troops to deal with threats. That’s just a joke, but I’ll bet when you read it, you thought it was serious, didn’t you?  I’m not surprised.

Prayers and best wishes for Rep. Nadler

By Mike Huckabee

I want to express my best wishes and prayers for Rep. Jerry Nadler, who came close to collapsing during a press conference in New York Friday.  A code blue was called, and doctors rushed in and treated him for dehydration.  Some things transcend political differences, and our fellow humans’ health is one of them.

I genuinely hope that Rep. Nadler makes a swift and full recovery so that he can get back to taking care of the people’s business and doing the job he was elected to do.  I also genuinely hope that he actually will get back to taking care of the people’s business and doing the job he was elected to do. 


Three cheers for Senate Republicans

By Mike Huckabee

There isn’t much coming out of Congress these days that will cheer up the average American, but maybe this will do it: Three cheers for Senate Republicans for passing an amendment to make the ban on earmarks (pork spending added to bills to attract support) permanent.

Sponsor Sen. Ben Sasse said in a statement, "The last thing taxpayers need is for the same politicians who racked up a $22 trillion national debt to go on an earmark binge. It's pretty simple: Earmarks are a crummy way to govern and they have no business in Congress. Backroom deals, kickbacks, and earmarks feed a culture of constant incumbency and that's poisonous to healthy self-government. This is an important fight and I'm glad that my Republican colleagues agreed with my rules change to make the earmark ban permanent."

And now, we have to wait and see if the Democratic House will also make the pork ban permanent.  I expect to see that when pigs fly.


Quotes from our Presidents

"If you live long enough, you'll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you'll be a better person. It's how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit.”
- Bill Clinton


About that "crazy rumor"

By Mike Huckabee

With ratings cratering in the wake of its promotion of such transparent frauds as “Russian collusion” and Michael Avenatti, CNN has announced mass layoffs.  A source told Fox News that “basically the whole division” covering health care will be laid off.  I am honestly sorry to hear that, both because I hate to hear of people losing their jobs and because health care news (not scare stories about the need for government health care, but actual stories about health care) is an important topic that viewers need to know about. I could have suggested some firings that would’ve been much more deserved and improved CNN’s programming immensely.

Ironically, just a few weeks ago, a CNN vice president dismissed news of layoffs as a “crazy rumor.”  This is just more proof that the people running CNN can’t tell crazy rumors from news.   


Stelter's defense of CNN is wrong

By Mike Huckabee

Speaking of CNN, CNN reporter Brian Stelter is defending all the airtime that the network gave to sleazy/now-indicted porn lawyer Michael Avenatti.  He claims reporters were just “doing their job” by questioning him (that might true, if they’d really questioned him.)  Were they also doing their job by not reporting that they knew he was an abusive, egomaniacal jerk to everyone on their staffs who wasn’t a celebrity?

Stelter also made the circular argument that CNN was right to give so much airtime to Avenatti and treat him as a serious presidential contender because these days, a contender has to be a “TV star,” and Avenatti was one.  So they gave him so much airtime because he was a TV star because they gave him so much airtime?    

Also ponder this: The name of the CNN show that Avenatti defender Stelter hosts is “Reliable Sources.”  Still wondering why their ratings are cratering and they’re laying off staff?

    With the reasoning of Brian Stelter, logic is thrown out the door! It reminds me of the old claim, (that does not seem any more valid here) "I was just following orders!" As seems to be the case, most of the time, bad behavior ends up being discovered.

    Nadler issue: Feel nothing for these Dems, Unless one sees staff leaving, or coming out to media with What Ive seen stories. Nothing changes, Dems need more Shakeups to change,how?? So Far were suffering.
    Maybe Nadler should "faint" some more times in bad situations along with Pelosis speech issue.
    Or everything is the same
