Today's Commentary --- Bruce Ohr committed felony by failure to disclose -- Comment of the day -- "Huckabee" preview -- No surprise -- Hollywood blows it again -- "Shut up, Wesley!" -- Evening Edition - Daily Verse


When I said the information on Bruce Ohr’s testimony was coming out in dribs and drabs, I was not kidding. I had no sooner finished writing one update when we got another drib. A very major drib.

Recall that Ohr testified that there were people at the FBI who knew about his wife’s work for Glenn Simpson at opposition research company Fusion GPS, which was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, and his back channel communication with British ex-spy, imaginative “dossier” writer and would-be Trump nemesis Christopher Steele –- both before and after Steele was officially considered an acceptable source –- and that behind closed doors he “named names.” Now we’re learning the names.

Comment of the day

By Mike Huckabee

 “Please pardon my French, but I actually misread your ‘oppo research’ as ‘poop research,’ which obviously you didn’t mean.  Or did you?!  Great article, Mike!”

My reply:

Thanks, Mark.  Gosh, I didn’t realize the potential entertainment value of dyslexia!  Any time the term “oppo research” appears in print, we should all just rearrange the letters in our heads and consider it to be what it is; namely, poop.  I’d like to think the FISA court judges would have done the same if they’d known the extent of the Steele dossier’s political origins.


"Huckabee" preview

By Mike Huckabee

I know there are lots of fun things to do this Labor Day weekend, so I’ve packed tonight’s episode of “Huckabee” on TBN with great guests to make sure it’s on top of your to-do list.

One of the most talked-about young conservative pundits, Candace Owens, will give us the harrowing inside story on how she was assaulted by leftwing thugs in a Philadelphia restaurant. 

Paul Teutel Jr. of "American Chopper" will drop by to talk about cool custom motorcycles and his famous family.  Robert G. Lee is Hollywood’s #1 warm-up comic, the man who gets sitcom audiences roaring before they shoot. Tonight, he’ll be on camera, to make you laugh! I’ll have more crazy news “In Case You Missed It,” and a personal remembrance of Sen. John McCain.

To top it all off, musical guest Gary Lewis will rock the house with the classic ‘60s hits of his band, The Playboys, and tell us how he escaped the shadow of his famous father (appropriately enough for Labor Day weekend, Jerry Lewis) to make it on his own. 

All this and more will light up your long weekend, tonight at 8 and 11 p.m. EST (7 and 10 CST), on TBN.  For a handy channel finder for your local area and to stream previous episodes of “Huckabee,” visit


No surprise

By Mike Huckabee

I doubt you’ll be surprised to hear that Omarosa Manigault Newman’s claim that the problems she had in her White House job were due to the people who worked with her being racists is disputed by pretty much all the people who worked with her, including African-American Republican leaders, Congressional aides, White House staffers and black college officials, who say the problem was her “my way or the highway” attitude, her aggressive guarding of her turf, her maneuvering to advance herself and her hostility to black Republicans in general (she was reportedly a self-described Democrat and an early Hillary supporter.)

Hollywood blows it again

By Mike Huckabee

I’ve written before about how, growing up in the ‘60s, my heroes were the original NASA astronauts.  I was glued to the TV for every launch, splashdown and press conference, and I knew their names and stats the way other kids knew baseball players.  For me and millions of other kids, the words from the original “Star Trek” series, “To boldly go where no man has gone before,” weren’t some cheesy TV quote.  They raised goosebumps, because for the first time in the history of mankind, there were men actually living among us who were risking their lives to go into space, “where no man has gone before.”  And when Neil Armstrong made that “giant leap for mankind” by stepping on the moon and planting the American flag, it was a moment when all Americans watched in awe, filled with pride and patriotism to be part of the only nation on Earth that could have accomplished this incredible feat. 

So naturally, I was looking forward to seeing “First Man,” a new movie about Neil Armstrong starring Canadian-born actor Ryan Gosling – until I heard some news this week that’s soured me on the whole idea.  According to the Daily Telegraph, the filmmakers deliberately left out the most iconic moment of that historic event: the planting of the American flag on the surface of the moon.  Why?  I’ll let Gosling explain:

Gosling said they didn’t show the planting of the American flag because this accomplishment “transcended countries and borders…I think this was widely regarded in the end as a human achievement (and) that’s how we chose to view it.  I also think Neil was extremely humble, as were many of these astronauts, and time and time again he deferred the focus from himself to the 400,000 people who made the mission possible. Bottom of Form He was reminding everyone that he was just the tip of the iceberg — and that’s not just to be humble, that’s also true.  So I don’t think that Neil viewed himself as an American hero. From my interviews with his family and people that knew him, it was quite the opposite. And we wanted the film to reflect Neil.”

All things considered, I guess we’re lucky they didn’t show him planting the UN flag.



"Shut-up, Wesley!"

By Mike Huckabee

If you spend any time on the Internet, then there’s a good chance you know about “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”  If so, then you know the phrase, “Shut up, Wesley!,” repeatedly deployed at the annoyingly precocious Wesley Crusher (Wil Wheaton) every time he opens his teenage mouth to impart his wisdom to his elders and superiors.  You might also know that Wheaton has built a second career based on his Internet presence, and he constantly uses it to smite any less-than-PC conservative with his typically leftist, social justice-y celebrity political views. 

But he who lives by Twitter dies by Twitter, and like many a pioneer of leftist thought policing, Wheaton has found that the online self-righteousness mobs have now turned on and devoured him.  I’m not going to give you all the details, because it’s such a long and winding spiral down the rabbit hole of leftwing victim culture absurdity, and also because the Ace of Spades blog already did such an entertaining job of laying it out step-by-wacky step.  Suffice to say that Wheaton now has baying mobs of feminists, transgenders and other social justice warriors howling for his head, and he probably didn’t even know he was doing anything to offend them.  Which is the worst kind of offense because of his lack of wokeness to his privilege!  To paraphrase LGBTO oppression victim Oscar Wilde, it would take a heart of stone to look at his predicament and not laugh.  

All I can is, “Welcome to the club.  Now, shut up, Wesley.”

"Let not mercy and truth forsake thee:

So shalt thou find favour and good understanding
