By Mike Huckabee
Join me tonight for a jam-packed new episode of “Huckabee” on TBN! Rep. Ken Buck will tell us about the fight to end slave labor in China (and the American companies profiting from it.) Former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone is finally free to tell us his side of his legal battle. Comedian and free speech warrior Adam Carolla will tell us about his new book that’s guaranteed to have the Twitter mobs "literally shaking!" I’ll have serious commentary and some crazy news “In Case You Missed It.” And we’ll top it off with Johnny Bravo himself. Okay, maybe you know him better as Greg Brady. Or in reality, actor/singer Barry Williams from the classic sitcom, “The Brady Bunch,” with his cool musical group, the Traveliers.
We get rolling tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, and the same times on Sunday, only on TBN.

A 1912 TEST
As long as we’re debating whether to reopen public schools, now might be a good time to ask whether we’re getting our money’s worth for all those hundreds of billions of dollars we spend on them. Here’s a test given to 8th graders in 1912. Who do you think would be most likely to pass it today: a public school student or a home-schooled student?
PS - If you attended school in the modern age, here are the answers.
COMMENT OF THE DAY
From Dinesh D’Souza, who perfectly captured the spirit of what Obama is doing with his remarks at John Lewis’ funeral and elsewhere: “He stokes the very fires that he pretends to be extinguishing.”
RESHAPING BIOLOGICAL REALITY
I’m not sure who would be more interested in this story, George Orwell or George Carlin. But the latest PC attempt to reshape biological reality through the use of language comes to us courtesy of CNN.
Friday, the American Cancer Society issued new guidelines for cervical cancer screenings. And who should get those? Well, we can’t say “women!” That might offend somebody. So CNN advised that “Individuals with a cervix are now recommended to start cervical cancers screening at 25 and continue through age 65, with HPV testing every five years as the preferred method…” "Individuals with a cervix"?
CNN, don't you know it's outrageously offensive to women who have male genitalia but identify as having a cervix to suggest that they shouldn’t be getting regular cancer screenings for the cervixes they don’t actually have?
Social media sites are shutting down anyone (even doctors with extensive experience treating COVID-19) who suggests that Hydroxychloroquine might be effective and accusing them of spreading dangerous misinformation. But here’s a story about a website that’s tracking all the international studies of HCL currently underway. There are over 70 studies. So far, 51 have shown positive results and 16 negative results, but of the latter, 10 involved late-stage cases.
I know that liberal media outlets reject anything from the Gateway Pundit out of hand, calling it just a rightwing blog. So here’s the website they’re talking about, where you can look at the studies and their charted results yourself.
Also, note the chart comparing nations that started using HCL very early on to those that did not. You’ll find all the HCL-using nations bunched together, down on the low end of the deaths per million scale.
TWO COURT WINS FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP
President Trump scored two wins in court Friday. The major decision came in a 5-4 Supreme Court ruling rejecting a request by a number of groups, including the Sierra Club and the ACLU, to block construction of the border wall on environmental grounds. This is the second such rejection, but his opponents are still fighting what they call the “xenophobic wall” in lower courts. Still, it’s good to hear that the ACLU is now so concerned about defending the right of armadillos to roam freely across the border.
On the personal level, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court ruling that tossed out a libel lawsuit against Trump by adult film star Stormy Daniels, who claimed they had a consensual affair. She sued over a Trump tweet. He retweeted a tweet comparing her sketch of a man whom she claims intimidated her in a casino parking lot to a very similar photo of her ex-husband. Trump commented, “A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!”
Daniels claimed this damaged her reputation by painting her as a liar and criminal, rather than as a reputable porn star. But the Court ruled that Trump was just stating a personal opinion about the similarity of the two photos, and that “con job” was only “a colorful expression of rhetorical hyperbole.”
Trump recently admitted that he regrets some of his tweets. I assume this is one of them, although I could probably think of a few others that I wish he’d rethought before pressing “Send.”
