What if they gave an impeachment and nobody came?

For those of you who weren’t around during the antiwar protests of the 1960s, this line is a take-off on the catchphrase from that era, “What if they gave a war and nobody came?”

When applied to literal war with military combat, that question is about as unrealistic as it gets. If an army comes at you with all its weaponry and you don’t show up to fight, it runs right over you and conquers you. Think France and World War II –- it took other nations coming to the war to get them out from under the boot of Nazis. The only way this idea works is if absolutely NOBODY with any firepower decides to wage war.

Of course, that didn’t stop hippies, too tripped-out on hallucinogens to think clearly, from hanging the posters and wearing the T-shirts. Often, the question was illustrated with a picture of a gun with a daisy sticking out of it. Flower power. Right on.

But for an impeachment “war” --- especially the unconstitutional semi-impeachment inquiry currently underway in Adam Schiff’s House Intelligence Committee, it makes sense.


With gratitude,

Mike Huckabee

In praise of the REAL "Captain Kangaroo"

By Mike Huckabee

A few readers saw our headline calling Adam Schiff “Captain Kangaroo” and thought we were somehow slamming the real Captain Kangaroo, played by Bob Keeshan, beloved children’s TV host whose show dates from the 1950s. Perish the thought! The point of that play on words was merely that the House Intel Committee’s so-called “impeachment inquiry” is a kangaroo COURT, and the loathsome Schiff is the head kangaroo, in charge of it. We who grew up with the real Captain Kangaroo and his friends Bunny Rabbit, Mr. Moose, Mr. Green Jeans and Grandfather Clock will always remember him and the show with great fondness.

The real Captain got his name not by taking away the President’s most basic due process rights but by wearing a coat with gigantic pockets. Hey, boys and girls, would you like to see a very early episode of CAPTAIN KANGAROO? Here’s a link to one from 1956, complete with that happy theme song we loved. The “Treasure House” is a lovely escape from all the toxic politics, and I encourage you to pay a visit. We love the REAL, the original, Captain Kangaroo.

Hillary thinks she won

By Mike Huckabee

Some stunning words from our queen in exile:

Hillary Clinton not only thinks that if she runs for President a fourth time, “obviously” she’ll beat Trump; she actually believes she beat him the last time. I guess she believes that not liking the Electoral College means it didn’t exist in 2016. She might want to check her junk mail and note that it is not addressed to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I knew that liberals often confuse talking about a problem with actually solving it, but this crosses the line to a whole new level of self-delusion.

All things considered, I think I have the perfect campaign song for Hillary’s fourth losing run (and her SECOND winning run!)




"Smoking Gun"

By Mike Huckabee

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson has unearthed a “smoking gun!”  It’s a transcript of a phone call in which the President openly sought help from a foreign leader to help influence an upcoming election in the US in his favor.

Oh, wait: that was Bill Clinton in 2000, leaning on then-British Prime Minister Tony Blair to help Al Gore. 

Never mind!

I wanted to make sure you also read this comment:

I admit, I don’t bother mentioning every nonsensical tweet from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but just to catch you up on a couple of recent doozies:

AOC claimed President Trump’s attacks on Rep. Adam Schiff are “deliberate, atrocious, targeted antisemitism.”  Two questions:  (1.) Does she really think the only reason Trump wouldn’t like Adam Schiff is because he’s Jewish?  (2.) Adam Schiff is Jewish?  That literally never even occurred to me until she said it.

Well, it’s good to know she finally found a form of anti-Semitism she and her “squad” won’t defend.

And what would an AOC round-up be without a couple of wacky ideas to remake America into a socialist wonderland?  How about full welfare benefits for all illegal immigrants, who deserve it because they do so much for us?

And while we’re at it, let’s do away with prisons entirely, which she compares to Jim Crow, slavery and other Democratic inventions.  She said we need to find a more “just” way of dealing with criminals than putting them behind bars (after all, they do so much for us.)  I’d suggest forcing them to read her Twitter feed, but that would be cruel and unusual punishment.

    Aw come one. My response to Captain Kangaroo being the new nickname of Adam Schiff was obviously "tongue-in-cheek." Tell your staff to not take everything so seriously. I love your down home humor and really thought you;d catch the fun in my comment.
    Keep up the good work

    First off I'm neither a good writer or good at saying what I mean. No offence to any particular person out there. Since before our current president, President Trump, the democrats have done nothing but serve themselves and take from those who care ro work and do good for their families. Since Trump was elected president they have done nothing for the people they are suppose to be serving. The attempts to change the U.S.A. into a socialistic country are very blatent in my eyes. What can we do to get back the country that I was fortunate to grow up in and help those who truly can't care for themselves? I love my country and my family and do not like to see either being hurt in any way.

    Govermor Mike,

    While the song "Wishing will make it so" is very appropriate for Hillary's campaign, you may need to find anothr song, "Wising will make it so" was the theme song for the eight years of Obama.
