Today's Commentary --- Riddle me this: Why is special counsel Robert Mueller like a duck? -- Huck PAC invests in critical races -- Kanye West backs away -- Hillary -- The Event 2018 -- The Baltic Experience 2019 -- Dumb quote of the day -- Evening Edition - Daily Verse


A duck floating quietly on a lake appears motionless, but it’s not. Beneath the smooth water, its legs and feet are constantly swirling and kicking to maintain its direction. We don’t see the effort unless we somehow have a view from beneath the surface.

That’s sort of the way the special counsel is right now, at least until after the midterm elections next week.

According to longstanding Justice Department policy, prosecutors are supposed to take no actions that might affect upcoming elections. So Robert Mueller’s investigation has “gone dark.” Always tight-lipped about what his team is doing, he’s been even more secretive for the past few months. At the same time, we’re not hearing much from the typically very public Trump attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow, either. This relative silence may lull us into thinking that not much is going on, that Mueller is winding down his investigation and putting the finishing touches on his final report. Somehow I doubt that.

Huck PAC invests in critical races

By Mike Huckabee

My political action committee Huck PAC is a grassroots organization that relies solely on the financial support of individuals and our endorsements reflect their views.

Yesterday we invested in Ron DeSantis' campaign for Florida Governor, John James' campaign for US Senate in Michigan and five new US House races.  This year, Huck PAC has donated $231,300 directly to candidates (10 US Senate races, 32 US House races and 33 state races).

For a full list of our endorsements and donations please go here >>>

At the end of this week, we will announce another round of endorsements and donations.


Kanye West backs away

By Mike Huckabee

Hip-hop star Kanye West denied reports that he designed the “Blexit” logo on apparel promoting black people exiting the Democratic Party.  He blamed black conservative pundit Candace Owens for the mistake, saying he had introduced her to the person who designed it.  He also tweeted that he had “been used to spread messages I don’t believe in. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative !!!”


Owens, whom I know and respect, issued an emotional response, apologizing to West and insisting that she never said he designed the Blexit T-shirts, and that was “a lie that seems to have made its way around the world.”  Wow, fake news?  What are the odds?!


While some on the left are trying to make much of this distancing of Kanye West from Trump, I doubt that it will depress Republicans as much as they hope.  Most thought it was cool that someone of West’s stature in the black community would stand up to the liberal thought police, but ultimately, our side makes zero political decisions based on what celebrities say.  Whether West really feels that way or was just pressured into it by the fury he’s received from the music and fashion worlds where he has to make a living, it’s too bad but just par for the course. 


What’s far more important than the peripatetic political positions of one mercurial black celebrity is what black voters in general think of Trump, and that’s a different story entirely.  The latest Rasmussen tracking survey shows that Trump’s approval rating overall is up to 50% among all voters and 40% among black voters.


Considering the relentless, 24/7 negative coverage of everything Trump does (and I do mean everything: Barbra Streisand just blamed her weight gain from eating too many pancakes on him), those numbers are amazing, particularly the rating among black voters.  It shows that in the contest between all the anti-Trump bleating and record low unemployment and rising incomes across all demographic groups, more and more people are opting to believe their lyin’ eyes rather than CNN. 


You don’t need to be famous or wear a designer T-shirt to grasp that the Democratic Party has failed African-Americans and to consider giving the other guys a chance.  All you have to do is compare the results. And you don’t have to make public statements and risk being called racist names by leftist thought police, the way celebrities do.  All it takes is stepping up to the voting booth and privately expressing that you’re done with being taken for granted by a Party that’s done nothing for your community in years other than calling you names if you threaten to leave. 



By Mike Huckabee

Hillary Clinton is taking flak over an allegedly racist joke.  When interviewer Kara Swisher mistakenly attributed a quote from former Attorney General Eric Holder to Sen. Cory Booker, Hillary corrected her, then quipped, “I know they all look alike.” 


Some are slamming Hillary for repeating a racist cliché about black people.  But believe it or not, I’m going to defend her. I don’t think she meant it to be racist.  I think she was just being rude and judgmental, and we should all be used to that by now.


The interviewer made an innocent slip of the tongue, and Hillary automatically assumed she was a deplorable racist, or at least made a joke at her expense with that as the premise. That’s nothing out of the ordinary. She said as much about a quarter of the US population in 2016. Besides, implying that someone is a racist on the flimsiest of evidence is what most top Democrats do these days. So cut Hillary some slack.   


To help Hillary out some more, I will offer her a joke on the same subject that’s not in any way racist, and she’s free to use it all she wants.  You're welcome:


“’Holder and Booker’ are two prominent black Democrats.  That’s also what people chant at Trump rallies when he mentions Hillary’s name.”

The Baltic Experience 2019

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.

See you on the boat,

Dumb quote of the day

By Mike Huckabee

Dumb Quote of the Day: Citing rising deficits, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said, "If I had a magic wand, I would raise taxes and cut retirement spending."

Now, there’s some inside-the-Beltway thinking for you! You imagine having the power to perform magical miracles, and you’d use it to raise taxes.  

Note to Ms. Yellen: If you had a magic wand, make the national debt disappear!

    Another reason to vote Republican in 2018 may lie in what Ted Cruz brings up at around the 9-11 minute mark in this speech before the Senate judiciary Committee last month. Apparently, in 2014, the Democrats voted along party lines to repeal the free speech provisions of the First Amendment. I also recently watched a World News Broadcast video that stated that Nancy Pelosi plans to pursue that again if the Dems take back the House. It would be reasonable to consider that they may be planning to do that in light of the fact that they have already done so and fairly recently at that.
