t’s possible you’ve had a hard time this week keeping up with the shrill Democratic attacks on Attorney General Bill Barr (is it really an impeachable offense to allegedly not include in your four-page summary every nuance of a 400+ page report that had already had been released long before the hearing?)  If so, then a good way to catch up with the Democratic leadership’s public descent into infantilism would be to read the excellent summary of this week’s Mueller report-related events by Harmeet K. Dhillon at Fox News.  It will fill you in quickly on what happened and what’s likely to happen next. 

If I had to guess the next stage of Democratic reaction after anger and panic, I’d say it will be the “rats leaving a sinking ship” phase.  People who engaged in illegal activities to spy on, undermine and frame Donald Trump and his staffers will start offering to implicate higher-ups in exchange for immunity deals. Fear of that is the real reason for the ever-more-hysterical attacks on Barr, as well as the media’s helpful amplifying of those attacks and their efforts to get the most damaging information out with the most positive spin on it, to try to soften the shock and anger when Barr's finding go public. Remember, these media outlets could have done their job as journalists, dug up the truth and published it two years ago, but they were too busy trying to convince you that the President was a Russian agent who was about to be arrested.


With gratitude,

Mike Huckabee

The Gov. responds to reader comment on "Mr. Chicken"

By Team Huck

From Joseph T:

This has nothing to do directly with your column, but I was so irritated at this I had to write. Yesterday I saw a picture of a fool of a gray-haired, worn-out representative from Tennessee eating chicken in a hearing room that I believe to be in the Capitol building. He was trying, somehow, to disgrace AG Barr, I guess, but as far as I am concerned he only disgraced himself, his office, the Democrat party and the halls of the Capitol building.

Now, I know there are places designated for eating in that building, but where he was eating wasn't one of them. Then he had the audacity to hold up a statue of a chicken and call Barr a chicken. The representative from Tennessee...not only disgraced himself, but also his constituents of that wonderful state. He should be ashamed. I am ashamed of him.

I am not from Tennessee, but if I were, I would do all in my power to make sure this was his last term. I would do all I could to get everyone to vote against him. Cheap, theatrical, pompous foolish behavior from what is supposed to be an adult.


"Huckabee" preview

By Mike Huckabee

Join me tonight on TBN for an all-new episode of “Huckabee!”  I’ll have some (civil) debate and try to find common ground with CNN’s Van Jones.  Donald Trump’s campaign photographer Gene Ho will give us an inside look at the President’s life.  Fox News’ man-on-campus interviewer Ami Horowitz will expose the disturbing rise of anti-Semitism in American universities.  Chonda Pierce will give us a preview of her inspiring new documentary “Unashamed,” coming to theaters this week (fair warning: you’ll see my face in it, on a big screen!)  There will also be plenty of laughs from comic/ventriloquist Taylor Mason and some crazy news “In Case You Missed It.”  All that and more, plus we’ll top it off with country music superstar Darryl Worley.  

It’s all coming your way tonight at 8 and 11 EST, 7 and 10 CST, only on TBN. To find your local TBN channel and stream previous episodes online, visit


Found to be unreliable

By Mike Huckabee

In case you missed the frantic retraction of that politicized blacklist of allegedly “unreliable” news sites that was actually just a list of popular conservative news sites, here’s more from the Poynter Institute for Media Studies, which let itself be suckered by the list’s writer, who has a background with the notoriously biased SPLC.

I take some joy in linking to the real story from one of the media outlets he accused of being biased and unreliable.  By the way, the best line on this fiasco came from Ed Morrissey at, who headlined his write-up of it, “Poynter: Our Blacklist of ‘Unreliable’ News Sites Turned Out to be…Unreliable.”

The White House responds

By Mike Huckabee

The White House has responded to Speaker Pelosi’s ridiculous accusation that Attorney General Barr committed a crime by lying to the House.

At a certain point, the partisan stupidity just gets so tiresomely obvious, you don’t even want to bother with it any more.  It’s a nice day outside, and there are so many more enjoyable things to do than to have to respond to every bit of nonsense that comes out of the mouths of Democratic Party leaders, like an audience repeating, “Hidy-hidy-hidy-ho” back to Cab Calloway over and over. 

But if you’re the type who likes to keep up with all this rapidly-devolving idiocy, Andrew McCarthy at National Review forced himself to pretend to take the “Barr Lied!” garbage charge seriously long enough to explain in detail (using real legal terms, like a professional adult) why it’s a carload of horse poop.


16 year olds voting?

By Mike Huckabee

I don’t agree that we should lower the voting age to 16 (and isn’t it weird that liberals think 16-year-olds are wise enough to vote because they back gun control, but too stupid and irresponsible to own a gun until they’re 21?)  But if anyone wants to start a petition to replace the current Governor of Colorado with 16-year-old Ky Chapman, the high school student who confronted him about his ruinous, arrogant, unconstitutional leftist policies in the video at this link, I’ll consider signing it.


Quotes from our Presidents

“Unswerving loyalty to duty, constant devotion to truth, and a clear conscience will overcome every discouragement and surely lead the way to usefulness and high achievement.”
- Grover Cleveland


Detroit hires a private police force

By Mike Huckabee

“Despite” its strict gun control laws, Detroit is suffering from out of control violent crime, and the understaffed police force can’t keep up with it.  So about 5,000 Detroit citizens have resorted to hiring a private “police force.”  The company was started by an Army veteran to provide protection and security, and it gave its employees the intimidating name, the VIPER Force. 

Or, Detroit citizens could try something even more drastic to deal with all the crime: they could elect a Republican mayor for the first time since 1962.


Church membership in America

By Mike Huckabee

A new Gallup survey shows that church membership in America has plummeted 20 points since 1999 to just 50 percent.  And the percentage of Americans claiming to have no religion has more than doubled since then.

While stories such as this are worrisome, especially considering what pop culture and political opportunists would like to replace God with among young people, these numbers don’t tell the whole story.  In fact, as Glenn Stanton at The Federalist points out, if you examine the numbers more closely, you find that the rise in people claiming to have no religion is coming almost entirely from those who were never committed believers in the first place (the kind who might go to church on Christmas and Easter, and only say they are of a particular denomination because that’s what their parents were.)  These people haven’t abandoned religion so much as just gotten bold enough to admit what they’ve always been.  

There’s some good news to be found in this article.  For instance, those who say they’ve dropped religion were the ones who never got any sort of meaningful faith as children and never really had any faith to drop; while those who did learn in childhood carry their faith into adulthood.  Also, these studies tend to gloss over the fact that there’s a far bigger rise in nondenominational Christianity than there is among those who say they have no religion.  Read the whole thing, and it might make you feel better about the nation’s future.  I won’t say it will restore your faith, but reading the Bible to your kids would certainly help solidify their faith, and that would be good for America’s future, too.

    Hi Mike,
    About the section on church membership, I believe there are probably a lot of people getting polled about things that are just tired of answering polls so the results are going to be skewed. Of course, there are also a lot of folks in the country that haven't been here very long and they're probably happy to answer yet aren't really people that go to church.
