While President Trump was getting on board the peace train in Hanoi, Vietnam, on Wednesday, there was a slow-motion train wreck happening on Capitol Hill.

Democrats on the House Oversight Committee, the illustrious Rep. Elijah Cummings, chairman, insisted on exhibiting former Trump attorney Michael Cohen on the SAME DAY Trump met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un for peace talks, even though he still has two months to go before starting his three-year-prison sentence for, among other things, lying to Congress.

Talks End

By Mike Huckabee

Breaking news at our press time: President Trump has ended his talks with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un over Kim’s unwillingness to commit to full denuclearization until all sanctions are lifted.  In a page right out of “Art of the Deal,” Trump said, “Sometimes you have to walk.”  He stressed that this is not the end of negotiations, and he looks forward to talking to Kim again in the future, but "I'd much rather do it right than do it fast."

To Trump’s critics who will no doubt paint this as a failure of his negotiating style, I would remind them that under their brilliant, respected, time-proven diplomacy, North Korea expanded its nuclear program for 20 years until it was firing missiles over Japan.

Bipartisan decency

By Mike Huckabee 

Just when I thought the Michael Cohen hearing couldn’t get any more repulsive, toward the end, Michigan freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib appeared to call North Carolina Republican Rep. Mark Meadows a racist who was using a black woman as a “prop.”  The understandably furious Meadows replied that the woman, Lynne Patton, was a Trump aide and official at the Department of Housing and Urban Development who requested to be there to refute Cohen’s scurrilous accusations of Trump being a racist.

Kudos to Chairman Elijah Cummings for his diplomacy in getting Tlaib to back down on her incendiary language and for his welcome comments about how Meadows is one of his best friends, despite their political differences.  We could use a lot more of that bipartisan decency in this Congress, and a lot less name-calling and show hearings.

Israeli politics

By Mike Huckabee

I just returned from Israel, where I have visited many times over the years.  Each time I return, I marvel at the miracle that’s been created there: the prosperous, safe, technologically-advanced democracy that’s like a garden blooming in the middle of a desert.  Much of the success of Israel can be credited to its tremendous leader, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  But with elections only about six weeks away, the Attorney General is expected to announce today whether he will charge Netanyahu with bribery, fraud and breach of trust charges.  These charges are being selectively pursued and promoted by Netanyahu’s leftist opponents and are based on some of the most laughably thin evidence of vague wrongdoing I’ve ever seen.  Anyone who knows the man knows it’s impossible to imagine that he would ever let any amount of money affect his decisions about the governance of Israel, let alone some cigars and champagne.  

If these ludicrous charges are filed, Netanyahu can challenge them, and it will take a year just to sort that out.  But the very process could create a constitutional crisis or undermine his support in an election that’s neck and neck in the polls.  The closest analogy I can think of for the level of suicidal foolishness exhibited here would be if Britain had removed Churchill from office at the height of World War II over a parking ticket.

Social media companies rightfully called out

By Mike Huckabee

The latest expose from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas is important and shocking, but it won’t come as a surprise to most conservatives who post anything on social media sites.

This is a long and detailed article that demands careful reading, but it’s worthwhile to do so.  A former Facebook employee and whistleblower explains how leftist moderators inside Facebook have the power to create false accusations against users they disagree with, and they can and do take down their pages without even notifying the users that it's been done.  One of their actual excuses for doing this is a violation defined as showing nonpartisan people blunt truths to convert them to their viewpoint.  Convincing people to agree with you by telling them the truth?  We can’t have that on the Internet!

This suppressing of conservative voices on giant social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, etc.) that should be open, nonpartisan public forums is a growing problem that must be remedied now.  As Tucker Carlson noted, what we’ve been seeing with the recent silencing of various well-known and highly-followed conservatives is a test-run for the 2020 election.  In 2016, Donald Trump used social media to go around a mainstream media corrupted by partisanship and reach the people directly.  Many Silicon Valley social justice warriors seem determined not to let that happen again.  In close elections, all it might take to swing some races would be a last minute censoring of 10 to 20% of online conservative get-out-the-vote messages. 

The limousine liberal billionaires behind these social media companies need to learn in no uncertain terms that if they don’t start behaving like responsible, nonpartisan public utilities, they might face the very real prospect of their money-printing sites actually becoming public utilities.

16 Year Old schools AOC

By Mike Huckabee

I don’t want to be one of those conservatives who reacts to every ridiculous thing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says.  I just wish she’d help me by not saying so many of them. 

So in the name of kindness, in response to her arrogant reply to critics of her ludicrous “Green New Deal” that she’s in Congress so “I’m the boss” and we’re just baying from the cheap seats (fact check: she’s only one of 435 people in the House, which is – brace yourself, AOC – just one-half of one of the three branches of government), I’ll let a 16-year-old who obviously paid more attention in civics class than she did handle the job of telling her who really works for whom.

Convicted liar returns to Congress to spew more lies

By Mike Huckabee

Yesterday’s House sleazefest featuring Michael Cohen was trumpeted far and wide across the media for all the “revelations” about Trump that Cohen allegedly made.  But were they really “revelations”?  Doesn’t that imply that we learned something both new and verifiably true?  Actually, all we heard were the same anti-Trump attacks that have been retailed on leftwing media outlets and websites for over two years, only this time, spewed into the Congressional Record by a convicted liar.  Is this really what the media accept as “evidence” these days?

I have a couple of writers who have worked with me for years, first on my radio show and then my TBN show, and they also contribute to and do background research work for my newsletter.  I first came to know Pat Reeder and Laura Ainsworth from their daily syndicated radio service, the Comedy Wire, which impressed me not only with the wit of the one-liners but also their depth of understanding of the news and their research and fact-checking, which was often better than serious news prep services.  They seemed to have a sixth sense for spotting “fake news.”  So I asked Pat how they would apply their methods of vetting stories to the Cohen hearing.  While I’m glad they work for me, I think you’ll agree that CNN and many other news outlets could use their services, too.  Here’s Pat’s response:

My "just for fun" list of 20 questions for Michael Cohen

By Mike Huckabee

On Wednesday, former Trump attorney and soon-to-be jailbird Michael Cohen testified behind closed doors before the Senate Intelligence Committee, where it was said that nothing would be off limits and that Cohen should expect to get questions “from anywhere about anything.” Wednesday, he’s testifying in a public hearing before the House Oversight Committee (chairman: Democrat Elijah Cummings), where, according to the Wall Street Journal, he plans to say that the President engaged in criminal conduct while in office, so Democrats have been busy popping the popcorn for that. Thursday, he’ll testify behind closed doors again before the House Intelligence Committee (chairman: Democrat Adam Schiff).
Remember, one of the reasons he’s heading off to prison for a three-year sentence is that he was found guilty of lying to Congress. Cohen’s mouth is known for being “home of the whopper.”
