I returned home from dinner last night to hear the jury verdict in the Kate Steinle murder case and the comments of Garcia Zarate’s defense lawyer Matt Gonzalez, and I can tell you it didn’t make my dinner set well.

I was stunned and furious about this blatant miscarriage of justice and the arrogant, misleading exploitation of the Steinle family’s grief by the grandstanding attorney. Gonzalez had spent weeks insisting that this had nothing to do with politics or immigration, then the second his patently guilty client was freed, he ran to the nearest camera to politicize Kate Steinle’s death, outrageously compare the murder prosecution of his criminal illegal alien client to the kangaroo Russian collusion investigation of President Trump’s campaign, and depict the attempt to bring the Steinle family some long-delayed justice as racism against immigrants and the verdict as a victory for immigrants’ rights.

John McCain's vote

By Mike Huckabee

Is anyone else old enough to remember the old commercial where the two little boys wouldn’t try Life cereal, so they give it to little brother Mikey, whom they assume won’t eat it because “he hates everything”? Then they’re astounded when Mikey actually swallows it! He likes it! Hey, Mikey!

Why did I think of that old commercial when I read that John McCain has actually decided to vote for the GOP tax reform bill?


Alabama Senate race update

By Mike Huckabee

Now that the initial shock waves have passed, and Alabama voters have had a couple of weeks to examine and think about the accusations against Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore and compare them to what we’ve learned that sitting Congress members have been doing (and hushing up with our tax money), Moore now appears to be back in the lead. Byron York has some good analysis of why this is, which takes account of the leftwing views of his opponent and the credibility of his accusers. Interesting read, especially for unexpected tidbits like this: “By the way, in both Morning Consult polls, Alabama women tended to doubt the accusers more than men.” So much for the media’s attempt to make this race solely about men vs. women.



Funding NASA

By Mike Huckabee

President Trump has nominated Arizona State Treasurer Jeff DeWit as Chief Financial Officer of NASA, overseeing the space agency’s $20 billion budget. DeWit has been widely hailed as an excellent, well-qualified choice.

Trump has been talking about cutting federal spending, but he recently signed a bill to fully fund NASA. I’d love to see spending cut, too, but I agree that NASA is one of the few agencies where federal expenditures tend to be returned many times over. There are very few electronic advances of the past half-century, from computers to cell phones to GPS, that didn’t start with research by NASA. Who knows what further breakthroughs might await, once the agency refocuses its mission from “Muslim outreach” back to space exploration.

Giving his paycheck

By Mike Huckabee

On “Giving Tuesday,” President Trump announced that his third quarter Presidential paycheck of $100,000 (he’s not taking a salary) will be donated to the Department of Health and Human Services to help fight the opioid drug crisis. Good choice. This is a terrible national health emergency that hasn’t received the attention it deserves, but it’s reached a crisis stage. Last year alone, more Americans died of opioid drugs than were killed in the entire history of the Vietnam War.

Addiction is an issue that’s close to Trump’s heart. He watched his late brother Fred struggle with alcoholism, and it convinced him never to take a drink or try drugs. In October, he declared opioid drugs to be a national health emergency and said that we need “really tough, really big, really great advertising” to persuade Americans not to start using opioids. Many liberals mocked Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No” campaign, as if saying no to drugs were impossible. But Trump is living proof that it’s not. He said, “If we can teach young people not to take drugs, it’s really, really easy not to take them.” Hats off to him for putting his money where his mouth is to make that happen.


Defining sexual harassment

We’re hearing so many accusations of sexual harassment these days, some going back nearly 40 years, that it’s causing some people to question just how the term should be defined. The accusations run the gamut from groping, indecent exposure and physical assault to unwanted kissing, asking someone out on a date or patting a woman on her bare back. So Barna Research conducted a survey to find out just what behaviors men and women consider actual sexual harassment.

One interesting discovery: younger people (Millennials and Gen X’ers) are twice as likely to say they’ve been sexually harassed as their grandparents’ generation. Are they just more sensitive about it? Or could this be more evidence of what I talked about yesterday, that tearing down those restrictive, old fashioned standards of morality had a dark downside for women that feminists and liberals didn’t anticipate?

    Thank You Mike for your news letter, it is good old fashion news fare and tells the truth! We have no one to blame but our self's. You can not turn to the right or left with out seeing some kind of sex image. This country has be come obsessed with sex. The women movement of the 70"s then the sex revisionist of the 80" and 90's, taken out the morals of this country. We push sexuality so much even in kindergarten that all you see or hear is sex this sex that!! If we are going to put a stop to this then the first thing we need to do is put sex back where is should be in the bed room behind closed doors, and out law the saying "SEX SALES"!

    Governor Huckabee,

    re the Kate Steinle verdict. The West Coast is lowering the average IQ of the whole country, and we need to remove them like a cancerous tumor, before their idiocy can spread.

    California has hinted at leaving the union. My question is, do we have to wait for them to make a move (they won't, any more than the d*ckless weasels who promised to leave if Trump won will do what they promised), or can we vote them off our island? (Washington and Oregon are free to join them).

    I am excited about congress reaching an agreement on tax reform, but when Rubio said he wanted to raise to corporate tax to 22%, I though, yup still gouging the tax payer. The business does not pay taxes the tax payer or the product buyer does. His thought on why is good but do it at 20%.
