Join me tonight for an explosive new episode of “Huckabee,” when I welcome Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett to talk about the Deep State coup against the President exposed in his blockbuster new book, “Witch Hunt.” Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn will talk about protecting your privacy online. One of America’s top business women, Anne Beiler of Auntie Anne’s Pretzels, will reveal a tragic story behind her success. Illusionist Ken Harley will amaze you, and the goofy news of “In Case You Missed It” will amuse you. We’ll also pay a visit to the Musicians’ Hall of Fame, and wrap up with a fantastic new song for the troops from country music legend Charlie Daniels.
All that and more is coming your way tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, and the same times on Sunday, on TBN.

I'm sure we'll talk about this more next week, but just FYI: on Friday, the State Department released a report into then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server for government business.
It examined the approximately 30,000 emails that Hillary actually didn’t destroy, and just among those, it found 38 individuals were responsible for 91 security violations, with another 497 violations for which it was unable to assign responsibility to any one person.
That’s funny, because I can think of one person to whom you could assign responsibility for all the security violations that sprang from Hillary Clinton’s use of an unsecured private server for government business. But what do you bet that none of these people will face any more consequences for their violations than she did?
Think it was outrageous that Hunter Biden got $50,000 a month from the Ukrainian energy company Burisma just for being on their board while being named “Biden”? Well, here’s a correction: It was actually $83,333 a month.
That from a report by National Review, which claims Burisma paid Biden and his business partner Devon Archer $83,333 each per month for “consulting services,” while Biden served as a non-executive “ceremonial figure” with a “powerful name.” Burisma’s founder reportedly hired Biden to “protect” the company in the face of prosecution.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that! As the story at the link dutifully notes, “No evidence of wrongdoing has been found.” Which seems to me like a big part of the problem
On a side note, I love the subhead Fox News gave to this story: “Hunter Gatherer.” No kidding! In another related story, I’m thinking of changing my name to “Mike Huckabee Biden.”
Ironically, Joe Biden’s Presidential campaign is falling behind his rivals on fundraising, and he’s urging his supporters to give more. Here’s a modest suggestion: put Hunter Biden in charge of fundraising. He seems to have a real knack for it.
This week, Nancy Pelosi declared, “The Russians have been trying to get a foothold in the Middle East unsuccessfully, and now the President has given them an opportunity” (by pulling out about 50 Special Forces troops from Syria.)
For those with bad short-term memory, a reminder from RedState.com:
“Russia has had a naval base in Syria since 1971. They’ve been providing military support in the Syrian civil war on behalf of the Assad government since 2015, when they came in after Barack Obama’s many ‘red line’ threats against the Assad regime using chemical weapons amounted to nothing. The Russians proclaimed subsequently that they were making their presence permanent.”
And that’s just in Syria alone. In February, 2018, Trump reversed the hands-off policy against Russians in Syria with a deadly attack that killed about 300 Russians, after they helped Bashar al-Assad’s government fire on a US position.
Read more at the link, and enjoy as a bonus a photo of a smiling Nancy Pelosi shaking hands with Assad. In her defense, at least he’s not Russian.
It’s been said many times that one of the reasons Republicans support Donald Trump is that he fights back. This is also one reason why liberals hate him: when they call him a crooked, racist, sexist, homophobic, illegitimate, lying, fascist, Nazi con man, he fights back. And that makes him “divisive.”
This week’s Project Veritas undercover video expose of the blatant anti-Trump bias of CNN (ordered from the top by president Jeff Zucker, and so heavy-handed that many CNN employees privately complain about it) gave Trump all the more reason to fight back. But rather than just call the network “fake news” again, he had his personal attorneys send CNN a letter threatening to sue. Bet they didn’t see that one coming!
The letter, readable at the link, goes on for four pages listing CNN’s infractions and applicable laws under which they might be held legally liable. CNN dismissed the threat as a “desperate PR stunt” that “doesn’t merit a response.” But it’s not up to CNN to decide whether it merits a response. If Trump wants to press it, he can take them to court. It’s notoriously difficult for a public figure, much less the President, to sue for defamation, but this suit takes a different approach along the lines of "false advertising," accusing CNN of violating various laws by misrepresenting itself to the public and to advertisers by claiming to be an objective news source while actually pumping out propaganda motivated by Zucker’s “personal vendetta” against Trump.
It will be interesting to see if this is, indeed, just a PR stunt, but I wouldn’t bet on it. Trump has plenty of money for lawyers, and even if he eventually loses the case, he might consider it well worth it just to drag CNN’s rancid journalistic practices through the courts and into the public square. Just sending the letter alone insured that the list of CNN’s infractions against journalism from the Project Veritas videos made the news, when many news outlets had ignored the original story.
And before CNN protests that people shouldn’t be allowed to file lawsuits just to prevent someone from doing their job, they should remember all the frivolous lawsuits over the past couple of years to prevent Trump from exercising his legitimate powers as President. People file those kinds of lawsuits against Trump all the time. Sometimes, they win, and CNN celebrates. It might not be so much fun to be on the other side of one.
