Good for Joy Behar of “The View” for calling Vice President Mike Pence to apologize for her offensive comments about his Christian faith (she said that people who think Jesus is talking to them have a “mental illness.”) Pence accepted her apology, but she is still refusing to make a public apology on the show, despite ABC receiving over 30,000 angry calls from viewers.

I have certainly had my differences with Joy over the years...

"Huckabee" preview

By Mike Huckabee

Tomorrow, daylight saving time returns. Be sure to turn your clock forward one hour (“Spring forward”) before going to bed Saturday night. But if you have to lose an hour on Saturday night, be sure it’s not the hour when “Huckabee” is on TBN because I have a show you cannot miss. I’ll introduce you to a Huck’s Hero and take you on a tour of “Our Kind of Town.” I’ll talk with former Senator Joe Lieberman about why it’s so hard to get anything done in Washington. America’s money guru, Dave Ramsey, will have some tips on taxes, retirement and other financial issues that are worth their weight in gold. And brace yourselves: this week’s musical guests are the multi-platinum, countless award-winning Oak Ridge Boys! All that and more, at 8 pm EST, 7 CST on TBN.

Tragic news

By Mike Huckabee

There’s tragic news from the Veterans Home of California-Yountville in Napa County, California, America’s largest veterans’ facility. Yesterday, a man with a rifle exchanged fire with a deputy before crashing a going-away party for two staffers and taking hostages. All but three of the hostages were released, but after hours with no communication, police stormed the room where the gunman was held up to find him and all three hostages dead. They were all women who worked with the Pathway Home, a non-profit that helps vets, including those with PTSD, transition to civilian life.

At this writing, nothing is known of the man’s motives or background, just that he was a veteran who was dismissed from one of the facilities’ programs this week. Our prayers are with the victims and their families while we wait to learn more, and there is much more still to learn about this story.

Back to work again

By Mike Huckabee

America is finally “back to work” again, with 313,000 private sector jobs created in February alone and a record 155,215,000 Americans employed. There are now upwards of 150,000 jobs open in construction, many paying six figures, and employers are having trouble finding skilled workers to fill them. Home Depot’s program will help fill 20,000 of those slots with people who might have been struggling but can now look forward to bright futures.

Maybe next, they can help another group of poor, struggling Americans who need help to become employable: people with expensive degrees in subjects like Post-Modern Feminist Poetry.

"It's time to give socialism a try."

By Mike Huckabee

The Washington Post scared up a lot of clicks (and plenty of horse laugh comments) this week with an op-ed by Elizabeth Bruenig called “It’s Time To Give Socialism A Try.” Sure, it’s failed miserably everywhere it’s been tried for over a century, most recently turning Venezuela from a resource-rich nation into a land where starving people are eating zoo animals, but that’s just because (as always) the right people haven’t been put in charge of it yet. If you just put the right caring, altruistic progressives in charge of all that power over people’s lives, they will never be corrupted by it. Because they’re special. Inhumanly special.

I like to take any opportunity to get naïve young Americans who are flirting with the idea of socialism to take a long, hard look at what it really is, for the same reason you rub a puppy’s nose in its own mess when you’re trying to teach it never to do that again. But I don’t want to give that fishwrap the clicks, so instead, I’m linking to an excellent article debunking it by Chris Queen at PJ Media. If you must read the original, he has the link.

I’ll just add that the Washington Post, which carries this latest endorsement of socialism and attack on capitalism, is now owned by Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com, the Internet giant that’s driven so many competitors out of business and made Mr. Bezos one of the wealthiest men in the world. If he wants to keep it that way, he should remember that the last major publication to declare that “We’re All Socialists Now” was Newsweek, which has recently become the Venezuela of news magazines.

    A 'solicited' apology is NOT an apology-- it's an order, IMO true apologies come from the heart-- not from someone who controls the purse strings or is worried about ratings. Real adults do not have to be told to say, "Now [ insert name here], tell the man you're sorry; and say it like you mean it! You naughty, naughty girl."
