“If Mueller convicts Manafort, it is likely to be celebrated as proof of the legitimacy of the special counsel investigation. In truth, it is not. Manafort’s charges have nothing to do with Mueller’s original mandate involving Russian collusion, obstruction or any of the allegations directed against the President. That does not make Manafort innocent, but this was not the game Mueller was supposed to be playing.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself; that’s why I quoted Jonathan Turley from his piece in THE HILL. It’s still necessary to read all the way down the end to get to it, but it’s there! Coverage of the first day of the trial of Paul Manafort, one-time Trump presidential campaign chairman, has been incredibly biased and misleading, much of it omitting this important piece of information.

Blaming Trump

By Mike Huckabee

Just when you think you’ve heard President Trump blamed for absolutely everything, along comes a new one: The Robesonian newspaper in Lumberton, North Carolina, is blaming Trump for its decision to stop including the eight-page Sunday color comics section.  An editorial claims that Trump’s tariffs have made newsprint more expensive so they can no longer afford eight pages of color comics and are replacing them with one page of black and white comics.  The editors say it’s “a decision that we really believe was made at the White House.”

Of course, this has nothing to do with falling newspaper readership and revenues, or the fact that readers can see hundreds of color strips every day online at  No, this decision you made that saves your paper money is really all Trump’s fault.  He’s literally Bluto, Lex Luthor and Dr. Doom rolled into one. 

To quote Charlie Brown: “Good grief!”


Revealing moment

By Mike Huckabee

And the media wonder why they’re not popular in the Heartland? Politico reporter Marc Caputo defended CNN’s Jim Acosta from hecklers at the Tampa Trump rally by tweeting that Trump supporters at the event were “garbage people” and "If you put everyone's mouths together in this video, you'd get a full set of teeth." When the predictable angry reaction at his gross elitism poured in, Caputo doubled down on the insult. But as fury with him grew, he deleted the offensive and bigoted (but incredibly revealing, if he really wonders why Trump calls the liberal media “the enemy of the people”) tweets and posted an apology.

Sounds like he learned that Trump supporters do have teeth after all.

Coming home

By Mike Huckabee

This story from Wednesday didn’t get the attention from the media that it deserved.  There were so many more exciting things to report on, like scandals and trials and partisan fighting.  But to many Americans, there was nothing more important than the return at long last of the remains of the soldiers who went off to fight in the Korean War over 60 years ago and never returned home.

As part of his deal with President Trump, North Korea's Kim Jong-Un released repatriation cases containing the remains of 55 fallen soldiers.  They arrived in Hawaii and were welcomed by Vice President Mike Pence in a solemn ceremony at Hickam Air Force Base at which a military band played hymns and each flag-draped container was accompanied by one Marine, one sailor, one soldier and one airman.  Pence, whose father fought in Korea, said, "Today, they are known but to God. But soon, we will know their names, and we will tell their stories of courage." 

There are still 7,699 U.S. service members listed as unaccounted for from the Korean War.  These first remains will have to undergo forensic tests to identify them so their families can finally have closure – or to determine if they are all Americans.  This is only the beginning of a long process.  But it’s a hopeful beginning that Kim will keep his word, and that the heroes who died in what is sometimes called “The Forgotten War” will not be forgotten.

In Case You Missed It

By Mike Huckabee

From the “No, This Isn’t The Onion” Desk: An Alberta, Canada, man wanted to buy a new car, but being a male in his early 20s with a spotty driving record, the insurance alone would have cost him $4500 a year.  So he lied on the paperwork, claimed he was a woman, and saved nearly $1100 on his car insurance.  But he feared he might be in trouble after he learned that he needed to change his driver’s license and birth certificate, and that required a doctor’s note. 

Luckily, he was “shocked but also relieved” to learn that under the new, "create your own reality," gender-identity laws, all he had to do was claim that he identified as a woman and that would make him a woman. The doctor wrote the letter and the government rubberstamped the change, no questions asked. 

The man/woman said he felt like he’d beaten the system, telling CBN News, "I'm a man, 100 percent. Legally, I'm a woman. I did it for cheaper car insurance."

Pretty clever, but I wonder if he’s considered that no matter how much he saves on car insurance by being a woman, he’ll end up spending more than that on higher dry cleaning bills.

    Thank you for remembering the MIA returning to the USA! As I watched the evening news I was so disappointed, again, that most of the news channels found this story, a wonderful result of the long overdue meeting between the United States and Korea , not noteworthy enough to give any respectful amount of coverage. It is time for the American people to change the media, hit them in their pockets, refuse not only to watch but contact their sponsors and challenge them to help or lose business. News in America is no different than news in Russia or North Korea! Someone is feeding us what they want us to believe. Please keep your newsletters coming!
