When I used to do my radio show, the announcer would come back from a commercial break with the slogan: “He’s conservative...but he’s not mad at anybody.” The idea was that I was on the air to provide a forum for amiable, respectful discourse among people who might disagree, which I still feel was providing a valuable service in an age of bitter partisanship. But if I were doing that show today, I couldn’t in good conscience use that slogan. Too much is going on that has me fed up and angry and even worried about the future of the Republic --- and I hear it from my readers, too.

I’ve been doing a lot of writing about the abuses by the FBI and the FISA court in what is certainly an attempt to take the President of the United States down from within, just as permanently as a well-aimed assassin’s bullet. (On Thursday I was on Sean Hannity’s radio show and had nothing but praise for him for the work he’s doing to help uncover those abuses of power.) The sharp knives are out from the mainstream media as well. I get comments from readers when I write about these things, and you know I read them. More and more, I’m seeing a pattern of jadedness and even despair that anything will ever be done. And that, more than anything, makes me mad, because one of the goals of this destructive effort is to make it so complicated that Americans will finally just throw up their hands.

Bipartisan school violence bill passes the House

By Mike Huckabee

Wednesday, just one month after the tragic school shooting in Parkland, Florida, the House passed a bipartisan bill called the STOP (Students, Teachers, Officers Prevention) School Violence Act. It’s not the gun control bill liberals are pushing for, but one that actually addresses the direct causes of the problem. It allocates $50 million to the states for improving school safety protocols, setting up anonymous threat reporting systems (that I hope someone will pay attention to!) and training teachers and police in recognizing and responding to students with mental health issues.

It still has to pass the Senate, but considering it got bipartisan support and passed the House by 407-10, maybe it’s something that even the Senate will be able to agree on.



Police and FBI not up to the task again in Florida

By Mike Huckabee

This is not a rerun: A teenage male whom authorities knew to be a potential threat has attacked a group of people in Florida. But it’s not getting as much media attention as you might expect, maybe because it doesn’t fit the current preferred media narrative. It didn’t involve a gun, but it did involve radical Islamist terrorism and failure by the authorities to do their jobs.

In Palm Gardens, Florida, 17-year-old Corey Johnson was arrested for allegedly stabbing a 13-year-old boy to death and seriously wounding a woman and her 13-year-old son at a birthday party sleepover. Johnson reportedly told police that he was an ISIS sympathizer, his Islamic faith inspired the attack, and he read the Quran beforehand “to give him courage to carry out his intentions.”



Larry Kudlow joins Trump team

By Mike Huckabee

President Trump named former Reagan budget official and CNBC financial expert Larry Kudlow as his new head of the National Economic Council. The choice should please establishment free-trade Republicans who hope that Kudlow will help curb Trump’s populist, pro-tariff policies. Which tells me they still haven’t figured out Trump. Trump admitted he and Kudlow don’t see eye-to-eye on everything, but said he wanted different viewpoints. When it comes down to decision time, though, I can’t imagine Trump going against his instincts. He also noted that Kudlow is anti-tariff, but he’s now come around to believing in them “as a negotiating point.”

That’s what I tried to tell people when Trump first brought up his steel and aluminum tariffs while already exempting Mexico and Canada and maybe Australia. While many so-called economic experts were predicting a worldwide tariff war and economic Armageddon, driving down the stock market and dampening consumer confidence, I was saying to wait until you see what actually happens. For all we know, the whole subject of tariffs was just another ace in the Art of the Deal, something to hold over the other side’s head in trade negotiations to get better terms. Now, even Kudlow is admitting that by the time it’s all over, China might be the only nation that’s actually facing a tariff. And you know what that would mean:

Democrats would accuse Trump of favoring Russia.

"Clock Boy" is back in the news again

By Mike Huckabee

It’s hard to believe that 15 minutes of fame can stretch out to three years, but “Clock Boy” is back in the news again – let’s hope, for the last time.

You might recall Ahmed Mohamed, the then-14-year-old who brought a digital clock in a box to his school in Irving, Texas. He was told to put it away, but got it out during a later class, where the alarm was set to go off. His teacher took him out of class and called police, who questioned him and had the bomb squad examine the device. After finding it was harmless and deciding it wasn’t a deliberate, illegal “hoax bomb,” they released him.
