After all the trouble I went to to put together that list of questions for Rod Rosenstein, his testimony has been postponed indefinitely. Committee chairmen Bob Goodlatte and Trey Gowdy said in a statement late Tuesday that they were postponing because they would be “unable to ask all questions of deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein within the time allotted for tomorrow’s transcribed interview.”
One problem that may have contributed to the delay was the format for the interview, which excluded all but four members of Congress, including Freedom Caucus members Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan, who were really intent on being there, disgusted as they are with Rosenstein’s stonewalling on the release of documents and also with his previous failure to appear. But I’m wondering if the postponement might also have something to do with a new story about the dark background for the FISA application, which raises a lot of new questions and perhaps necessitates more preparation before calling Rosenstein in.
Huck PAC's Political Impact
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.
In 2018, Huck PAC has donated $194,800 directly to candidates (9 US Senate races, 27 US House races, 5 Governors races and 23 Arkansas races).
At the end of this week, we will announce another round of endorsements and donations.
Sandra Day O'Connor
By Mike Huckabee
I hope you’ll join me in sending prayers and good wishes to Sandra Day O’Connor, the first female Supreme Court Justice. She is 88 and just announced that she has early stage dementia and “probably Alzheimer’s disease.” She says she can no longer participate in public life and will spend “the final chapter” of her life with loved ones in Phoenix.
In a moving open letter, retired Justice O’Connor expressed her “gratitude and deep appreciation for the countless blessings” she has received and many people who’ve made her life possible. She also left a message to current and future generations about the importance of understanding the Constitution and our unique system of government, of teaching children civics and of “putting country and the common good above party and self-interest.” It’s both a timeless and very timely message. I urge you to read it, and again, to say a prayer for her and her family.
Theaters dropping "Gosnell"
By Mike Huckabee
I’ve told you that “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” is a must-see film. But you must see it quickly, because, ironically, the movie industry is doing everything in its power to abort it. Despite racking up $2.5 million at the box office in less than two weeks (amazing, considering it was on just over 600 screens, was ignored by reviewers and blocked from advertising on social media and other outlets), theaters are already dropping it from 253 screens.
The producers smell a rat, noting that that in some multiplexes that are dropping it, it’s as high as the sixth most profitable film per screen. They’ve also heard reports of patrons being told screenings are sold out when there are seats available. Director Nick Searcy says some of the few media outlets that actually wrote about the film openly lied about it. One review claimed it became very partisan against abortion once the story moved into the courtroom, even though every word of those scenes came straight from the trial transcript.
The media are so in the pocket of the pro-abortion movement that they are determined to keep you from knowing that this gripping, heartbreaking, dramatic, very well-made and absolutely true-to-life film even exists. It’s the same “protect abortion at all costs” attitude that led to Gosnell’s deadly clinic being protected for years, and his actual murder trial going unreported until the absent press was shamed into covering it by a photo of their empty gallery on social media.
You can still see this film, and you can ask your local theaters to screen it. But you’d better hurry. For information and to find a showing near you, visit www.gosnellmovie.com

According to one of the world’s leading genital reconstructive surgeons, he and his colleagues are seeing increasing numbers of transgender patients who’ve had sex-change surgeries returning to ask for reversal surgeries to transition back. Dr. Miroslav Djordjevic says these patients have told him of crippling levels of depression following their transitions, even to the point of considering suicide. But he said these stories are not being heard.
And why not? Because reporting them might undercut the preferred narrative about transgender people, which would gin up a lot of social media “OUTRAGE.” That’s why Bath Spa University in England infamously yanked a research grant in 2014 for a psychological study of the de-transitioning issue. Not because it wasn’t real or didn’t deserve study, but because studying it would require admitting it exists, and that would be politically incorrect.
I know that I’m not part of the self-proclaimed “party of science,” but I don’t think that’s how science works.
The link has more on this subject, along with the really politically incorrect news that many of those who want to reverse their surgeries now believe they were too young when they decided they were the wrong gender – something nobody’s allowed to say in the era when it’s considered both compassionate and acceptable to pump confused 11-year-olds full of hormone blocking drugs, even when their parents object.
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,
San Francisco allows non-citizens to vote
By Mike Huckabee
In case you think that it’s just partisan paranoia to claim that Democrats want open borders because they covet the illegal immigrant vote: San Francisco is about to hold its first election where non-citizens will be allowed to vote in school board races. Newt Gingrich has a suggestion that Congress reaffirm that only citizens have the right to vote, and see how many Democrats would support it.
Incidentally, that shouldn’t even be necessary. The fact that it is just shows how far off the deep end the left coast Democrats are swimming these days.
