There’s something wrong with the hysterical reporting that has resulted from Robert Mueller’s indictment of 13 Russian nationals and entities for “meddling” (there’s that word again) in our 2016 election.

Under ominous headlines, wire reports describe it as “...a sprawling indictment that unveiled a sophisticated network designed to subvert the 2016 election and support the Trump campaign.”

Not so fast. Comments from people in a much better position to know –- Russian journalists who exposed the “trolling” months ago, as well as Rob Goldman, VP of Ads for Facebook, which cooperated in Mueller’s investigation –- reflect a starkly different take. Goldman claims that many in the media are ignoring key facts in order to fit the “main narrative of Trump and the election.”

Media fake news

By Mike Huckabee

There was a lot of fake news circulating about the Florida school shooter last week. One example that originated with the New York Daily News and was widely retweeted by the blame-the-NRA crowd was a claim that he was trained to shoot in an NRA-funded school rifle team.

Well, only if you consider the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps, a program founded in 1916 and that’s in over 1700 institutions nationwide, as an “NRA-funded” gun club. Granted, the NRA’s charitable wing did give $10,827 to the school’s JROTC chapter in 2016. But it’s a good thing they did, since Company commander Capt. Zackary Walls and Capt. Colton Haab, both 17, used bulletproof materials bought with the NRA’s donation to shield students as they heroically led them to safety. If you’re wondering why they didn’t shoot back, being as they were part of an “NRA-funded rifle team,” it’s because they train with air rifles that shoot pellets.


Teacher of the year responds

By Mike Huckabee

Kelly Guthrie Raley, a “Teacher of the Year” from Florida, wrote a Facebook post in the wake of last week’s school shooting. She’s been in the classrooms for 20 years, working on the front lines as society changed, discipline for children eroded, and parents switched from making kids be responsible for their actions to cursing out teachers when they try to correct them. She has some suggestions for preventing school shootings that some people won’t want to hear. But a lot of folks must agree, since her post went viral and at last count, has been shared nearly 690,000 times. After you read it, you might want to make it 690,001.



The Israeli Chuck Norris

By Mike Huckabee

This is one of many reasons why I call Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a Churchill in a world full of Chamberlains. Now, you might even call him the Israeli Chuck Norris.

Sunday, Netanyahu addressed the Munich Security Conference, which was also attended by Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif. Netanyahu not only warned all the nations’ representatives that Israel “will act not just against Iran’s proxies that are attacking us, but against Iran itself,” he also brought along a souvenir and presented it to Zarif personally: a hunk of twisted metal from the Iranian drone that Israel recently blasted out of its skies. Netanyahu said, “Mr. Zarif, do you recognize this? You should. It’s yours. You can take back a message to the tyrants of Tehran. Do not test Israel’s resolve.”

Another story made headlines last week, about some police accusing Netanyahu of corruption by improperly accepting some gifts. He dismissed their document as biased, extreme and “full of holes, like Swiss cheese.” I can’t speak to the details of the accusations (although having been the target of spurious, politically-motivated and later-dismissed corruption claims when I was a Governor, I’m always skeptical of any accusations that are accompanied by political opponents demanding the resignation of someone they couldn’t beat at the ballot box.)

However, I find it absurdly implausible to think that Benjamin Netanyahu, a man who has taken on one of the toughest jobs in the world, who loves Israel so dearly that for years he’s devoted his life to standing up against hatred, anti-Semitism, terrorist attacks and existential threats to his nation and people, would in any way let his state decisions be influenced by some piddling bribes. A man who stares down the Iranian mullahs while handing them the wreckage of their own aircraft is not going to be brought down by Swiss cheese.

White House aide Hogan Gidley riles media

By Mike Huckabee

White House aide Hogan Gidley has really riled White House reporters by saying what’s been obvious to a lot of us for ages: that the Democrats and the media have done more to spread chaos and divisiveness in the US with their year-long phony “Russian collusion” frenzy than the Russians ever dreamed of accomplishing.

Full disclosure: Hogan used to work with me on my 2016 Presidential campaign. Nice to see he still shares my nasty habit of saying unacceptably honest things that make reporters’ heads explode.


Father pretends to be 11 year old daughter

By Mike Huckabee

When a father in Argentina discovered that an adult male was grooming his 11-year-old daughter through the WhatsApp app and trying to get her to send him lewd photos of herself, he took over her phone. Posing as her, he arranged a meeting…and when the pervert showed up, he got the surprise of his life. It wasn’t “Dateline NBC” but a furious father who pummeled him good, then posted photos of his bloody-nosed face on social media with a warning of what he was.

Astoundingly, when the police showed up, they arrested the father for battery and charged the other man; but they released them both, despite an Argentine law that calls for six months to four years in prison for anyone who tries to lure minors into sex acts by contacting them online or through phone messages.

Let’s hope the dad’s lawyer is smart enough to make sure there’s at least one father of a daughter on his jury.
