Sunday afternoon, hundreds of migrants at the San Ysidro Port of Entry on the California/Mexico border tried to cut through the security fence and storm the border to enter America.  They were also throwing “projectiles” (for the non-jargon-speaking audience, that means they were hurling rocks) at Border Patrol officers, who responded to the escalating violence with tear gas and rubber bullets to force them back.  Note that they did not use lethal force, although President Trump said that he had given the go-ahead to allow it if it were necessary for self-defense:

Mexican police also helped contain the incident and stated that the 500 or so migrants who tried to violently and illegally storm the US border would be deported.  Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen also condemned those whose “dangerous actions” are “not consistent with peacefully seeking asylum, and said the US will not tolerate this “lawlessness” and will deal harshly with “anyone who destroys federal property, endangers our frontline operators, or violates our sovereignty.”

Deleted tweet

By Mike Huckabee

An aside to Hawaii Sen. Brian Schatz, who wrote and deleted a tweet accusing US Border Patrol agents of using “chemical weapons” on “unarmed families.”  Tear gas isn't classified as a "chemical weapon."  And most of the people trying to storm the border while hurling rocks at the officers were young men with strong throwing arms.  If a bunch of strangers tried to break down Sen. Schatz’s door and storm into his home while throwing rocks at his head, I wonder how long he’d just stand there and take it?  In case he doesn’t know this, a rock aimed at your skull at high speed can be lethal or cause brain damage.  Although I guess some people don’t have much to worry about in that regard.


Obama judge

By Mike Huckabee

If you’ve managed to stop laughing yet at Chief Justice John Roberts’ claim that there are no “Obama judges or Trump judges,” and that all judges are dedicated to equal justice regardless of their political beliefs, then here’s some helpful evidence of the existence of that mythical creature, the “Obama judge,” that someone needs to share with Chief Justice Roberts.  

It’s about a judge on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals (the one President Trump complained about and Roberts defended in between having to overturn their many unconstitutional leftist rulings).  This judge was not only appointed by Obama in 2012, but prior to that, he raised over $200,000 for Obama’s 2008 campaign and gave $30,800 of his own money to committees supporting Obama.  He’s also – guess where? – on the 9th Circuit Court, where just last month, he ruled that the Trump Administration can’t cut off federal money to “sanctuary cities” that willfully defy federal law.  Sounds like an “Obama judge” to me!

But to be fair, in 2004, he also raised $100,000 for John Kerry, so I guess we shouldn’t assume he harbors any political bias. He might be just as much a “Kerry judge” as he is an “Obama judge.”  Fair and balanced!


This wild story about federal agent's misconduct makes a point

By Mike Huckabee

As we wait and wonder what eventually will happen with the various investigations into FBI misconduct –- in both their protection of Hillary Clinton and their surveilling of the Trump campaign –- here’s another story of how the secret activities of federal agents can go horribly wrong.

The Houston Chronicle ran a stunning story on Friday about Leatrice Malika De Bruhl-Daniels, a 45-year-old career officer with impeccable credentials, having worked at the FBI as an investigative specialist and then spending eight years as a special agent with NCIS, the U.S. Naval Criminal Investigative Service.  NCIS protects Navy and Marine Corps secrets and handles criminal, intelligence and terrorist investigations in ports around the world.  But De Bruhl-Daniels is charged with doing just the opposite --- she ‘s alleged to have tipped off her new boyfriend, who was under investigation at the time as a suspected terrorist, that he was being surveilled.

The Baltic Experience 2019

By Mike Huckabee

I am thrilled to announce an unforgettable trip to the Baltics for the summer of 2019! After many years of the Israel Experiences and our most recent trip the Mediterranean Experience cruise, we are bringing you another phenomenal cruise, the Baltic Experience! This all-inclusive cruise will feature some of the most beautiful places in the Baltic Sea and we will get to travel to and absorb these destinations aboard a luxury cruise ship from the Azamara Cruise line. If you have traveled with us before, you already know that all-inclusive means exactly that and there are no surprises along the way. The Baltic Experience will be no different. And when the weather is often unbearably hot throughout most of the US in August, we will be enjoying the cool and delightful weather that makes travel in the Baltic region perfect. Once again we have the entire ship and will fill our time on board with spectacular entertainment and special guests. In addition to the cruise we have multiple pre and post cruise offerings you can choose from to extend your trip. Our last cruise sold out in record time so we encourage you to get your cabin secured soon. We look forward to traveling with you soon and as always we will work tirelessly and do everything in our control to bring you The Greatest Trip.

To learn more about this exciting trip, visit my website here.

See you on the boat,

Dangerous toys list

By Mike Huckabee

As you’re frantically shopping for the toys on your kids’ Christmas lists, you might want to check out the Annual Safe Shopping Guide, a report by the Illinois Attorney General’s office listing the most dangerous toys and those that have been recalled.  Granted, some of these don’t sound all that dangerous (I guess you can put your eye out with a balloon, but if that’s what they consider dangerous, I wonder how those of us who grew up with BB guns, Black Cat firecrackers, metal toy trucks and fishing hooks ever survived to our ripe ages.)


But I do concur with them including Internet-connected toys that can spy on your home on the “dangerous” list.  And I agree with their claim that excessively loud toys can be dangerous.  Not for the reason they cite (they might harm children’s hearing), but because they might hurt grandpa’s foot when he stomps them.


Grateful for God's blessings

By Mike Huckabee

During this Thanksgiving Day weekend, I hope you and your family are having some great time together with an abundance of delicious food, maybe some football games, but most of all some time to reflect and be grateful for God’s blessings.  Just living in America, we’re blessed beyond our realizations.  There are those who have little, and those whose lives are crushed beneath the weight of health, financial, or family problems.  But most of us don’t live without the support of our family, friends, and our church or synagogue.  Without the network of those who truly love and care for us, I’m not sure how we’d make it.  If things are tough for you this year, look deep and I bet you’ll still find many things for which to be eternally grateful.  The leftover turkey can be turned into turkey chili, turkey gumbo, turkey sandwiches, turkey salad, turkey pot pie, turkey and dumplings, or turkey spaghetti.  But God can take what we think are the leftovers of our lives, and He can make something wonderful out of them.  Sometimes, the leftovers are even better than what we started with.  And If you can truly thank God for who He is, you might find the same with all you give to him as you trust Him with the recipe for your life.

    Gov. whole mess on the border is because we have now for over 20 years or more allowed in millions for low wages. Seen here in Ga for years thousands here working and we give food stamps and they use our ER . WHY Gov. Who allowed and wanted this here. Now this caravan expecting that they can come on in and use their kids which are a very small part of this group mainly men. When are we to stop when there are millions from other places around the world trying to come in legally? So we are to tolerate this. Hope those in the media on CNN, MSNBC bleeding hearts now Mika and Joe and Barbra Streisand can take in these thousands and help them. We are on the road to many having good jobs again. Amazing that GM now is saying they have to close interesting? Go join the other millions of jobs that left here for profits. I have my first Chevrolet and my last if they decide to go elsewhere? NAFTA about destroyed us . Pres Trump knows business and saw this happening and is trying to change for us to make a decent living again. Many of the big companies made profits and they were not upset over the higher tariffs that ripped us off. So Gov. he is right on and no more to come in here illegally and now to find out who pushed this and gave to get them up this far. Something stinks in the apple barrel. At one time in Canada they had where you sponsored immigrants coming in. Maybe they would like the overflow of our Mexican and Central Americans. Who exactly is coming in with how many killed in Mexico last year per drugs trafficking? This is what we need on top of the how many in our prisons now? Our family and friends dying of drugs? Keep it real Gov . and sorry for many who do need to come but the majority are not educated and what are we to keep doing here and happens to our country over time. I am waiting to hear all of these people who are so upset to say come here with open arms and I will take care of you? Big mansions and millions of dollars no problem? To say now that even Mexico is not safe for us to travel the past few years and yet we let in all of these people who is nuts?

    These people came up here just assuming that they would be let in. One person was quoted as saying, "We want quick and easy access" to the border. Another person was quoted as saying, "I didn't expect this." Well, what DID he expect, to just walk right across the border?" They have shot themselves in the foot by their behavior. After what they are doing why would they think that anyone would WANT to let them cross the border. They don't understand the meaning of "orderly" and "legal." I think our border patrol, backed up by the military, is doing an incredible job in holding back this crowd. But also notice the wall. That is part of the wall that been constructed since Trump has been in office. He has mentioned several times that a wall was under construction on this part of our border. Right now, that is being a BIG barrier in
    containing these people. The picture would be entirely different without it. People can say whatever they want, but look at the facts portrayed in these photos.
