I imagine most Americans have no more interest in the European Union Parliamentary elections than they do the latest cricket scores. But this weekend’s results are sending shockwaves that could realign the entire continent, and it appears to be part of a worldwide movement, at least partly fired and inspired by Donald Trump’s 2016 victory.
Across Europe, in Italy, France, Greece, Poland and other nations, conservative populist and nationalist parties made big gains while leftwing/socialist parties fell like dominoes. This will give you an idea of how widespread the leftist carnage was.
Is this a turning point for the late Rev. Martin Luther King?
By Mike Huckabee
(Warning: This story contains some very shocking content and is for adults' eyes only.)
There is a story going all around the media about the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. It started with an article in the Times of London that referenced biographer David Garrow, who describes newly-released FBI memos discussing alleged secret tapes made by bugging Dr. King’s hotel room. The FBI files allegedly include claims that King had affairs with up to 40 women, engaging in a sex orgy and watched as a pastor friend raped a female parishioner.
A number of publications rejected this story, but it eventually came out, mostly because of Garrow, who won a Pulitizer Prize for his previous biography of King and who, as a “Democratic socialist,” can’t be accused of being hostile to Dr. King. He says this "poses so fundamental a challenge to his historical stature as to require the most complete and extensive historical review possible."
Reader questions our "deep state" coverage. Our reply.

'Huckabee' writer/researcher Laura Ainsworth has spent a lot of time delving into the issues brought up by this reader, so she asked to respond...
From William T:
To say that the Steele dossier should not be believed because it included far-fetched stories is not reasonable because we know from payments to Stormy Daniels by Trump and to, at least, one other woman that Mr. Trump is not beyond doing something ‘far-fetched.
I also think that you should note that the ‘insurance policy’ has another explanation and it could also be true, and that is the investigation into Russia activities around the Trump 2016 campaign was proceeding slowly, as an ‘insurance policy,’ because it was expected that Hillary Clinton would win. The assumption, I think, was IF Mr. Trump won, the investigation could be completed and IF collusion was found then it could be addressed.
I also think you should consider again that if ex-FBI director James Comey had been determined to ensure Hillary Clinton would win, he would not have ‘re-opened’ the ‘Hillary Clinton email investigation’ just weeks before the election and announced it to the public....right?
Thanks for your kind consideration of my thoughts on this.
Correction: Stunning news from Dartmouth College
By Mike Huckabee
Stunning news from Dartmouth College: a conservative spoke on campus…and a riot did NOT break out! He explained his views freely, students listened and asked questions, a dialogue ensued…and hearing differing opinions didn’t make any students die or have to rush to a safe space to cuddle puppies and squeeze Play-Doh.
Why, it was almost like…dare I say it?...a university!
- Original post mistakenly said Dartmouth University.
AOC: wrong on so many levels
By Mike Huckabee
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is miffed at the New York Times for allegedly not doing its job as a loyal lapdog for the left, which includes always painting conservatives in the worst possible light and using photos of them taken only in mid-sneeze. The story is about former Trump aide Hope Hicks allegedly wrestling with the “existential question” of whether to comply with a House subpoena. AOC attacked the paper both for story and its photo of Hicks, which she claimed was a “glamor shot” of someone who’s “considering participating in a cover-up led by the President.”
Wow, so much wrong on so many levels. First, there is no “cover-up.” All of these officials have already given countless hours of testimony to Robert Mueller’s team, who found no crimes. And the very people who were screaming “cover-up” last week are now screaming like stuck pigs because Trump allowed the Attorney General to declassify any and all secret documents to find out what the investigators were up to.
Second, as the linked op-ed points out, the Times article is 22 paragraphs of conjecture and fake news because Hicks never talked to them about whether she was wrestling with an existential question, an alligator or anything else.
Finally, what isn’t mentioned here, but what I’m sure “Huckabee” contributor Laura Ainsworth would notice (she’s written about these hyper-consumer-driven women's magazines inexplicably pushing socialism before): One of the biggest boosters of AOC is Glamour magazine, which writes regular fawning articles about her, all illustrated with beautiful glamor shots of her, and I haven’t heard her complain yet.
Here are a couple of examples of Glamour’s hard-hitting political headlines about AOC:
“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wore a Cape to the 2019 State of the Union - A Congressional Superhero” and “What Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Hoop Earrings Mean to Latina Women Like Me.” Here are a lot more, in case you want to start off your week feeling a little queasy.
The moral is that she who lives in a glass house whose walls are lined with glamor shots shouldn’t throw stones.
By Mike Huckabee
NYU Professor and Time magazine columnist makes up fake quote from President Trump praising Kim Jong-Un and posts it on Twitter. Backtracks after it’s retweeted over a thousand times and he gets blasted for making up fake news. Claims he was demonstrating how fake news gets started and that his fake quote was “plausible.” Trump complains about this fake news and says maybe we need to change the libel laws to discourage it. Media organizations that can’t bother to fact-check their own anti-Trump stories immediately pile on Trump for making inaccurate statement about libel laws.
My question: How can I be sure Trump really said that about libel laws?
More garbage from this guy
Remember Michael Wolfe’s anti-Trump garbage book, “Fire and Fury”? It got a lot of media hoopla for its salacious claims about Trump and his family that Trump and his inner circle called a pack of lies until Wolfe was finally forced to admit that he had no evidence to back it up.
Well, Wolfe has another anti-Trump book coming out which I’m not going to help publicize by naming it. This one’s not even out yet and already its key “bombshell” claim – that Robert Mueller drew up an obstruction of justice indictment against Trump – has already been denied by…Robert Mueller. His spokesman told Fox News, “The documents described do not exist.”
Let’s hope that the fact that the only person who would know the truth has already debunked it as a steaming pile of horse apples will be enough to keep talk shows from booking this known fabulist. But of course, he’ll still get plenty of TV time when he’s called in to repeat his nonsense over and over to various House committees.
