This week, the world finally got its first look at the grandiose “Green New Deal” plan to transform America by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “Democratic” Socialist cohorts. Not since the Titanic set sail from England to the US on its ill-fated maiden voyage in 1912 has such a massive project arrived with so much fawning media coverage, only to sink so quickly and ignominiously due to its creators’ hubris, arrogance and incompetence.

The titanic egos of all involved crashed into the iceberg of reality the second the world got a gander at what they actually want to do. The widespread reaction – a combination of shock, disbelief and uncontrolled laughter – so spooked the GND’s backers that within hours, it disappeared from AOC’s website (but don’t worry: the Internet is forever, so there will always be copies around for future historians and anyone who needs a good belly laugh.)

The “Green New Deal” is so ridiculously utopian, so utterly devoid of even the slightest consideration of feasibility or affordability, and seems to be such a product of an undergraduate all-night bull session that you’d suspect its creators already started trying to conserve water by drinking their bong water. Here are just a few of the hilarious highlights:

"Huckabee" preview

By Mike Huckabee

I’m writing this week from Israel; but don’t worry, just before I left, I shot a brand new episode of “Huckabee” for you to enjoy tonight on TBN.  We’ll talk border security with international security expert Joseph M. Humire, and terrorism with FrontPage magazine’s Jamie Glazov. The stars of the inspiring new film, “Palau The Movie” will give us a sneak peak.  Johnny and June Carter Cash’s son, John Carter Cash, will share some Cash family memories and a favorite recipe of the Man in Black.  Multi-Grammy-winning bassist Victor Wooten will absolutely amaze you. And I’ll offer my comments on both the serious “Facts of the Matter” in the news, and the goofy news, “In Case You Missed It.” 

All this and more fun and surprises are coming your way tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, repeated at the same times on Sunday, only on TBN.  To find your local TBN channel and stream previous episodes online, visit


The Whitaker Hearing

By Mike Huckabee 

If you want to see why so few Americans have any respect anymore for office holders in Washington, or if you missed last weekend’s professional wrestling matches and need a fix, then read this story about the House hearing Friday to question Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker, who probably won’t even be in office for more than another week.  Democrats postured, posed, preened and pounded their chests like WWE wannabes, embarrassing not only themselves but the American governmental system in front of the world.  It reminded me of those news clips from Asian nations where parliamentary sessions erupt into brawls. 

I would say this to Gerald Nadler, Sheila Jackson Lee and all the rest who seem so intent on demanding that Robert Mueller never be fired, or in any way held to account; that he, in effect, be treated as a one-man fourth branch of government, superior to the other three with no checks or balances whatsoever:

If he hasn’t been fired already, after stacking his investigation with known lying, partisan political hacks; blowing millions of taxpayer dollars investigating a conspiracy for which there is zero evidence; violating virtually every rule of proper prosecutorial conduct; turning a blind eye to the use of tainted and unvetted “evidence” to obtain FISA warrants under false pretenses; and wasting taxpayer money to stage an elaborate, irresponsible and over-the-top mafia-style, guns-drawn, pre-dawn raid for the TV cameras on a 66-year-old man and his hearing-impaired wife; then what makes you think there’s any outrage he could pull that would get him fired?  No matter how corrupt, partisan, dishonest, self-aggrandizing or disdainful of the law he may be, he’s obviously never going to get the heave-ho from his job that he richly deserves.  So relax: his place in Washington is just as safe as yours is.



Farting cows

By Mike Huckabee

Conservative writers are still enjoying slicing and dicing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey’s “Green New Deal” that was posted online and quickly yanked after it was greeted with gales of laughter.  I think some writers might have literally laughed themselves silly.  Here’s an excerpt from Jonah Goldberg’s article, which was inspired by his love of cows in “Far Side” cartoons and his outrage over the GND’s proposal to eliminate “farting cows.”  Brace yourself:

“It would be udder chaos as each cow tried to be neither seen nor herd because the steaks would be so high. I know I’m milking this by butchering a very serious topic. I don’t want to steer you wrong, and I understand why you might have a beef with all of these puns that have moved pasture your lactose tolerance.” But “don’t have a cow.”

Prayers and condolences for the families of all three men

By Mike Huckabee

In the obituaries this week, former Michigan Democratic Rep. John Dingell, the longest-serving Congress member in history (nearly six decades), passed away at home Thursday at 92. Dingell was one of the toughest Democratic partisans ever in Congress, and an early backer of universal health care.  But his method of intimidating visitors by mounting the head of a 500-pound boar in his office and telling them how he killed it with a pistol as it charged him would probably make many modern members of his party hit the fainting couch.

Fellow Fox News commentator Bob Massi, an expert on law and real estate who was known to fans as “The Property Man,” died at home in Nevada Wednesday after a long battle with cancer.  He was 67.

And longtime film actor Albert Finney died Thursday in London at 82.  Finney grew up poor and remained humble.  Although he was compared to Spencer Tracy and Laurence Olivier, and had memorable roles in big hits such as “Skyfall,” he preferred small films, character parts and stage work to pursuing stardom.  He turned down the lead in “Lawrence of Arabia” and didn’t want the knighthood title of “Sir,” saying it “slightly perpetuates one of our diseases in England, which is snobbery.”  Even though he was nominated for Oscars five times, he declined to fly to L.A. and attend.  He said, “It seems silly to go over there and beg for an award.” Both his talent and his attitude will be sorely missed in Hollywood.

Our prayers and condolences go out to the families of all three men.


Is Roberts turning liberal?

By Mike Huckabee

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts appears to be trying to take over the “swinging gate” seat vacated by Anthony Kennedy.  Just three years ago, the SCOTUS struck down a Texas law requiring abortion clinics to have hospital admitting privileges so they can get patients care quickly in case of emergencies.  Roberts joined the conservative dissenters in that case.  But this week, he voted with the liberals in a 5-4 decision to put a temporary hold on a very similar law in Louisiana (Trump appointees Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh both voted with the conservatives to allow the law to remain in effect pending a ruling.)   

The Court didn’t explain the decision, and they’ve yet to issue a final ruling on the law.  At that time, we’ll discover whether Roberts merely had some technical reason to delay okaying the state law and he still holds the same view of abortion laws that he did in 2016, or whether he’s “evolved” on this issue – that’s the approving term that the media use when a conservative Justice turns liberal.


William Barr update

By Mike Huckabee

Update on President Trump’s Attorney General nominee William Barr: The Senate Judiciary Committee approved him along party lines (after a failed attempt by Democrats to handcuff and neuter him, a la Jeff Sessions).  His nomination now moves to the full Senate, where he’s expected to be approved by the Republican majority, amid much expected huffing and puffing from the left side of the aisle and a pious, disapproving lecture by Chuck Schumer with his glasses on the end of his nose.  This is starting to feel like a bad play that we’ve all had to sit through too many times.


Jobless aid applications down

By Mike Huckabee

The Labor Department reports that weekly applications for jobless aid fell sharply last week by 19,000 to a very low 234,000.  It shows that the economy is strong and the job market so tight that employers are trying to hang on to workers so they won’t leave to take a better job elsewhere. 

I’m sure I speak for the mainstream media when I say, “Thanks, Obama!”
