There’s an interesting sidelight to the revelation of politically-charged texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Yes, they obviously deplore President Trump and would love nothing more than to get him impeached and ousted from the Oval Office --- even jailed, if they could manage it, on any charge they can come up with --- but it’s not just Trump they view with condescension and contempt.

It’s you.

That is, if you reside in Flyover Country and supported Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton. Their texts reveal that their sensitive, upturned noses can actually “smell” the Trump support in places like Walmart, and that they think of people in parts of Virginia as “uneducated hillbillies” (with the word “hillbillies” misspelled --- love it!). We in Middle America are simpleminded people, certainly not sophisticated and intellectual enough to grasp the intricacies of government policy that they deal with every day. Why, we want to go back to 1950s America, which was racist, which means WE are racist! (Um, who’s simpleminded?) This is also a class thing: “blue” connotes blue blood, blue coastal waters and Ivy League schools; “red” connotes red pickup trucks, red MAGA hats and red necks.

The Adam Schiff story Part II

By Mike Huckabee

Something occurred to me after writing about California Rep. Adam Schiff getting “pranked” by those two Canadian DJs, and it might add to our understanding of whether or not he was really duped. I haven’t heard anyone else make this observation, so here goes…

For what it’s worth (precisely nothing), a spokesman for Schiff, who is the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has said their office thought the call was “probably bogus.” But we can be sure someone as crafty as Adam Schiff –- and he’s on the Tenth Level Of Crafty –- would know a prank call was undoubtedly going to be recorded and shared far and wide to make him seem like an idiot. If he thought it was being recorded as a joke, why on earth would he be totally serious and play along so naturally? Answer: he wouldn’t. He’d offer some kind of “tell,” however slight, to let on that he knew it was a joke.

So, my bet is he thought it was real. It obviously never occurred to him that the call was being recorded –- except perhaps by Putin, whom the “Russians” had assured him was in on the scheme, anyway. And he was ready to collude with Russians (thickly-accented ones at that) to get pictures of “naked Trump.” When you know Schiff really bought in, it’s even funnier, right?

Hey, it’s evidence of his willingness to collude with Russians. So maybe he needs to stop accusing others of collusion when there’s no evidence whatsoever.

The Democrats' dilemma

By Mike Huckabee

There was an excellent article by Michael Barone at the Washington Examiner, ticking off various issues on which Democrats staked out positions that were unpopular (shutting down the government over DACA) or absurdly false (claiming that the GOP tax cut would rob middle class taxpayers and bring on economic Armageddon) and pressed them to the hilt in the media. They are now facing an election with these blatant lies and missteps around their necks, while Republicans can run on a record of worker bonuses, bigger paychecks and the lowest unemployment rate in 45 years.

I wrote recently about the Democrats’ dilemma: most voters want something positive to vote for. Revving up their far-left base by calling President Trump a Nazi and a white supremacist might turn out enough hotheads to swing state special elections in local districts, but it remains to be seen whether that’s a successful strategy for winning a statewide Senate race.

On the other hand, when you look at the Democrats’ record on the economy (stagnant) and foreign policy (ISIS, North Korea, Iran, Syria, Libya) over the past decade and compare it to the past year of rising economic growth, job creation and the obliteration of ISIS, maybe liberals call Trump nasty names for the same reason they’re constantly hectoring us about using the correct one of their 500 latest newly-concocted gender pronouns:

Because words are all they’ve got.


A new study

By Mike Huckabee

A recent study found that not only are airplanes flying tubes of bacteria, but airport terminals might be even more germ-ridden. Despite this, I strongly advise against getting into the airport security line wearing a surgical mask.

Weiner's laptop in the news...again

By Mike Huckabee

Someone released onto the Internet the contacts in Anthony Weiner’s laptop, including private phone numbers and addresses of hundreds of prominent political and media figures. They’re not hard to find online, but I’m not going to tell you where. I think that leaking other people’s private information online is dangerous and reprehensible. I’m only mentioning this at all because the newsworthy question is “Who leaked it?” Considering his laptop was in the possession of the FBI, apparently, either someone at the FBI did it, or the FBI is vulnerable to hackers. Neither alternative is good news.

I also wanted to loudly proclaim one other important fact about the leak of political and media contacts from Anthony Weiner’s laptop: They do NOT include me!


Gender hysteria

By Mike Huckabee

A Staten Island school that postponed its annual Father-Daughter Dance out of concern that it wasn’t “gender-neutral” is getting a big earful from angry parents.

In fact, one mom summed up the general public’s feelings so well about out-of-control PC gender hysteria in schools that T-shirt and bumper sticker makers might want to jump on this headline. It could be next catchphrase to sweep the nation.
