New Attorney General William Barr already has an enormous amount on his plate, with many observers demanding to see accountability and the blindfold tied back over Lady Liberty’s eyes but others highly doubtful of any reform.

In the wake of Michael Cohen’s disastrous (for him) testimony last week, and in anticipation of still more closed-door “classified” testimony –- which is just weird, since Cohen doesn’t even have a security clearance –- ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes appeared on FOX News’ Maria Bartiromo’s Sunday show to talk about what actually NEEDS to happen in order to get the real “Russia” story.

Terrible tragedy

By Mike Huckabee

Sunday, a deadly tornado struck in Lee County, Alabama, leaving a swath of devastation a mile long.  Houses and trailers were ripped apart, some reduced to nothing but the foundations.  There were a number of injuries, some severe.  At this writing, 23 people are confirmed dead, including an 8-year-old girl.  There was also an unconfirmed report of the death of a 6-year-old boy.

Please keep the victims in your prayers, and consider a donation to help at www.redcross.org or www.samaritanspurse.org  And keep close watch on the weather forecasts because conditions are right for more dangerous weather through the next couple of days.

Narrative-shattering moment at CPAC

By Mike Huckabee 

Here’s one of the more narrative-shattering moments of the CPAC conference: the founder of Black Guns Matter, Maj Toure, explained that the urban minority community is actually conservative in most of their beliefs, but they don’t trust conservatives because liberals have done such a good job of demonizing them and conservatives haven’t done enough to reach out to them and disprove that narrative.

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/black-guns-matter-founder-plan-turn-inner-cities-conservative/

I can vouch for that from personal experience.  When I became Governor of Arkansas, I wanted to serve all the state’s people and work with the African-American community to improve conditions in their neighborhoods.  So I reached out to black civic and church leaders to let them know I wanted to hear their concerns and find common ground to help.  There were a lot of long-ingrained suspicions to overcome, but I eventually convinced them that I was sincere, and we worked together to make some positive changes.  I’m proud to say that when I ran for reelection, I got a larger share of the black vote than any Republican since Reconstruction. 

Right now, the left is attempting to gain power by sowing division and suspicion among any and all identity groups.  They seek to elevate themselves by tearing Americans apart.  Republicans need to call out the poison of identity politics for what it is and concentrate on what we all share as Americans.  For instance, under President Trump’s policies, unemployment for all ethnic groups is at or near all-time lows.  That’s something that should be trumpeted by the GOP 24/7. 

JFK said, “A rising tide lifts all boats,” and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. said, “We may have come on different ships, but we’re all in the same boat now.”  Voters should be reminded that both of those things are as true as ever, but only the Republicans still believe in them.

Nadler announces next attack on Trump White House

By Mike Huckabee

Because Congress and the White House have no real issues or problems to deal with, New York Rep. Jerry Nadler, now in charge of the House Judiciary Committee, announced plans to barrage the White House and Justice Department with demands for documents to prove that President Trump obstructed the Mueller investigation.  You know, the one that’s still going on unimpeded after two years and about $20 million of taxpayer money with no end in sight, the one for which rabid partisans were hired and only fired after they were proven to have violated the law and lied to Congress, the one overseen by people with blatant conflicts of interests for which federal regulations required them to recuse themselves and yet they remained in place for years.  

Sounds as if Trump did almost as lousy a job of obstructing that investigation as Jerry Nadler plans to do running the Judiciary Committee.

Of course, Nadler also has many other gripes, like apparently thinking it’s an impeachable offense for Trump to criticize the media that constantly attacks him and runs fake news stories about him. I’ll get back to you on that as soon as I reread the Constitution to see if there’s anything in it about the First Amendment right to freedom of speech not applying to Presidents that Jerry Nadler doesn’t like.

Food stamp news you won't hear

By Mike Huckabee

Minor news you probably won’t hear because there are so many important anti-Trump rumors and another dozen sexy new socialists entering the presidential race to cover: Since Trump took office, the number of Americans on food stamps has dropped by over 3.8 million to its lowest level since before the 2009 recession.

Part of that is due to states being allowed after 2013 to require that applicants for food stamps work, attend school, volunteer, or take job training.  If this story does get any coverage, I suspect that’s the negative angle the media will focus on, but good luck convincing most Americans that it’s a negative thing.

New Executive Order protects free speech on college campuses 

By Mike Huckabee

During his CPAC speech, President Trump announced that he will sign a (long-overdue) executive order protecting free speech on America’s college campuses.  He was joined on stage by Hayden Williams, the young man recently punched in the face by a leftist thug on the UC-Berkeley campus for daring to man a table for a conservative student group. 

Trump said, “He took a hard punch in the face for all of us,” and we can never allow that to happen again.  Before the media pull the “Trump is inciting violence on campus” hysterics, allow me to quote former Obama deputy chief of staff Jim Messina to fellow Democrats: “If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard.”

https://www.westernjournal.com/trump-announces-sign-executive-order-regarding-free-speech-college-campuses/

Universities used to be laboratories of free speech where students could be exposed to a wide variety of ideas, debate them and learn how to think critically and separate truth from nonsense.  This is why the left made it a multi-generational mission to take over higher education and insure that only their side was allowed to be heard: because it doesn’t stand up to intellectual scrutiny, so they have to shout or beat down anyone who speaks up against it. 

I’m certain the college administrators will do everything in their power to ignore Trump’s order or run to a liberal federal judge to get it overturned.  But a reminder: colleges are under state control, and they’re also desperate to keep donations and tuition money coming in.  Americans who are fed up with leftwing totalitarianism on campus have the power to contact their state officials to demand reform and accountability, to withhold donations and to send their kids to schools where lives aren’t ruined and faces punched in if a student dares to commit the unpardonable crime of having a non-leftist-approved thought.  

These schools may preach pure socialism, but their Achilles heel is money. Withhold it until they fold. As the humorist A. Whitney Brown said about the collapse of the USSR, “Who ever imagined that the fatal flaw of communism would be that there’s no money in it?”

Pro-infanticide Party

By Mike Huckabee

Amid all the other news (or “news”) that was getting so much attention, the shocking Senate vote by Democrats to block the “Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act of 2019” did not get the attention it deserved.  It deserves to be shouted in outrage from every rooftop. 

In an act that would have been unthinkable just ten years ago, prominent Democrats, many of them with presidential ambitions, lined up to block a bill that would have required doctors to perform the most basic act of their profession: providing medical care to a baby born alive during an abortion.  President Trump quite rightly tore into them for this unconscionable defense of infanticide, which he described as “executing babies after birth.”

https://www.westernjournal.com/trump-blasts-dems-blocking-bill-stop-infanticide-dont-mind-executing-babies-birth/

But I have to hand it to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who actually managed to top the imbecility of agreeing to a DNA test to prove her "Native American heritage" with this stunning tweet defending her pro-infanticide vote with a totally inappropriate pro-abortion cliché: 

“Republican politicians just tried (and failed) again to score political points at the expense of women. Enough. Women and their doctors should decide what’s best for their health – not the @SenateGOP.”

I suppose that using “women’s health” as a euphemism for killing children in the womb has become such a habit by now that Sen. Warren didn’t even stop to think before using it to describe allowing the death of a child that is now completely outside the mother's body – one that has already been born – i.e., that is, say, 15 or 20 feet away from the mother's body – one who no longer has any effect whatsoever on the health of the mother, but is now a separate, autonomous human being in need of medical care that doctors have taken a sacred oath to provide.

I’m sorry if I sound as if I’m over-explaining the patently obvious, but it seems that with some people and some subjects, it’s impossible to over-explain the obvious.

Fun Fact

By Mike Huckabee

While “The Star-Spangled Banner” was written in 1814, it only became the official US anthem on March 3, 1931.  That means Sunday marked the National Anthem’s 88th anniversary.  Just as Super Bowl Sunday marked the second anniversary of some Americans thinking it’s brave not to stand up and show respect when it’s played.

    Where is the pathetic RNC? Why are they not running ads on every MSM channel telling the brainless what their party did to the "Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act of 2019".

    Where is the Catholic Church in this? Catholics for some unknown reason are predominately democratic voters. Why? This is the party of baby killers. Most Catholics are probably clueless on this, but their leaders are not. The silence is deafening.

    Where is all the Black Clergy on this? They also lead their sheep to blindly vote for democrats in every election. Why? Are they all being paid off? Are Jessie and Al all in for killing babies? They all must be because their silence is also deafening.

    Once again, the GOP and the RNC are doing a pathetic job of getting the message out on any MSM outlets. If they won't invite you on to speak about it, then that's what TV commercials are for.

    Maybe they need to hire the PR folks running the DNC since they are so much better at this.
