I said in my first-take on Robert Mueller’s appalling public statement that I was not a legal expert, so it was just my research on this subject and my experience in dealing with ruthless political hacks that led me to conclude it was a shameless and desperate attempt to throw red meat to the impeachment-crazed Democrats on his way out the door and muddy the waters to take the focus off the corruption in his own agency.

Well, as expected, Jerry Nadler and other Democrats scurried straight to the nearest TV cameras to rail about this new proof of Trump’s many (but still unnamed) “crimes.” They conveniently ignored the comments already appearing from people who do have legal and prosecutorial backgrounds, slamming Mueller’s last minute Hail Mary bomb throw.

There are many such articles appearing, and I’ll point to more later, but for now, let's start with Sean Davis’ piece at the Federalist.

Mueller walks feebly away, as John Solomon discovers something BIG about British spying

By Mike Huckabee

One huge problem with Mueller’s strange statement on Wednesday was brought up in the New York Post’s editorial from that day:

‘Here’s the thing,” the editorial reads. “if Mueller’s team had been able to build a collusion or obstruction case against anyone else from the Trump campaign or the Trump White House, they would have been free to press those charges in court, AND EVEN NAME THE PRESIDENT AS AN UNINDICTED CO-CONSPIRATOR.” (Emphasis mine.)

Correct. And this is one of the reasons why Mueller’s excuse for not specifying charges –- that he wouldn’t have been able to indict a sitting President –- makes no sense. Trump wasn’t operating in a vacuum. If he had actually tried to impede Mueller in any way, somebody at some point would have helped him, acted at his direction or at least have been complicit. If there really had been any evidence of crimes, Mueller could have laid it out, recommended pressing charges where appropriate and named Trump as an unindicted co-conspirator. Why didn’t he?



Predictions making news

By Mike Huckabee

As I always warn people, polls this far out are meaningless (some polls are meaningless even on Election Day), but this is worth noting.  Three analytics experts who predict elections based on a variety of factors such as the economy believe that Trump will be reelected in 2020.  All three accurately predicted his win in 2016 when virtually nobody else (other than me) would go on the public record predicting that.  One of the models predicted Obama’s 2008 popular vote margin of victory within a fraction of a percentage point.

This is all very interesting if you enjoy political inside baseball, and I admit it’s encouraging to hear when the media are so biased that their coverage of Trump is over 90% negative and virtually every story is spun to make him sound bad, no matter what he does.  So enjoy the warm, fuzzy feeling, but remember: the only poll that matters is the one taken on Election Day.  If you don’t show up for that, all bets are off.  And if the Democrat gets elected, making America great again is off.   


A new Gallup poll

By Mike Huckabee

Gallup has a poll that’s interesting, since it doesn’t pretend to predict who will win an election that’s over a year away.  While the poll found that most Americans have reservations about Trump’s personality and leadership qualities, 47% say they agree with Trump on the issues.  That may sound low, but it’s up from 39% in 2017, and it’s higher than the public’s agreement with Obama and George W. Bush’s positions on issues at the same point.

Gallup warned that while the public’s negative view of Trump's personally is dragging him down (which is why every “news” story is slanted to make him sound like a cross between Hitler and Bozo), if Democrats nominate a challenger whose views are out of the mainstream, they will have a hard time beating Trump.  That might prove difficult, since the Democrats’ definition of the “mainstream” has drifted so far left that most of their candidates now make Che Guevara look like Dwight Eisenhower.

Voight vs Milano

By Mike Huckabee

We’ve finally found a way to make Hollywood stars realize how annoying it is for Hollywood stars to lecture us about politics: find a star with the guts and brains to go against liberal showbiz groupthink and defend President Trump.

Jon Voigt did just that, and it caused Alyssa Milano (who apparently just sends out deranged leftist tweets for a living now) to have a fury fit.  With a stunning lack of self-awareness, she rushed to Twitter to slam Voight as a “has been” and an “F-lister trying to stay relevant,” adding, “Nobody cares what an out-of-touch actor thinks.”

Her attack on Jon Voight as an out-of-touch “F-list” actor who should stay out of politics elicited some hilariously brutal responses, many touching on the fact that he’s one of the most award-winning actors of his generation and she’s mostly known for being on “Who’s the Boss” as a ‘tween.  One person said if Jon Voight is an “F-lister,” then Alyssa Milano isn’t even in the alphabet. Click the link to read more.  This one is probably the best:

“One Oscar, 4 nominations, 4 Golden Globes, 11 nominations...Who’s the Boss?”


Correction Corner

By Mike Huckabee

Correction Corner:  This week, we said that the group “We Build the Wall” bought the land upon which they built a private border wall near El Paso.  Actually, it turns out the land is owned by American Eagle Brick Company, which let the group build the wall on it.  Company co-owner Jeff Allen explained:

"Why wouldn't we allow it?  We have dealt with illegals coming across. We have been attacked by illegals coming across. We have been burglarized by illegals. We have drug traffickers coming through here, and anyone who is against this is against America."

Sounds like somebody needs to give him a call from New York or Washington and explain to him that there is no border crisis on his own property.


Creepy Joe returns

By Mike Huckabee

If Joe Biden is trying to make voters forget his “creepy Joe” image, this is definitely the wrong way to go about it.

Maybe this is why people are wondering about his lack of high-profile campaign appearances.  With Joe, the less you see, the better.

Incidentally, Biden is also getting slammed by Bernie Sanders for allegedly “courting the elite” by holding a series of high-dollar fundraisers with wealthy donors and lobbyists. If Joe wants millions of dollars, he should do what Bernie did: become a socialist politician.

A wrap-up of all the news you might have missed yesterday!


Daily Verse (NIV)

"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."

    Why, oh why, if Mueller is a prosecutor, which means he is also a lawyer, and he pulls a stunt by publically accusing President Trump of obstructing his investigation which according to the code of lawyers is a NO NO; especially since he had found no evidence of a crime, then why has he
    not been referred to the bar for disbarment? As a prosecutor it is not your job to publicly denounce someone as guilty if there has been no evidence brought forward to prove guilt. “Innocent unless or until proven guilty “

    I rarely disagree with you but I really don’t find those gestures of Joe with the little girl creepy. I thought that the things the women objected to where really exaggerated. Well. Ay e. It the hair sniffing. I think it might be a generational thing but that was just Joe acting like a grandfather. I think we can go to far when we are.
    not in favor of someone. I don’t welcome affectionate gestures from men I don’t know, or women for that matter, but men .i know well great me with a hug and sometimes a kiss on the cheek quite often it is not creepy by a sign of affection and friendship. This is almost alwAys in front of their wives. I will tell you when I was working I got creeped out from a few men but it was from remarks, or looks not physical touching. I did have men sit beside me at a machine or computer in rolling chairs crowding me. THAT was creepy.

    I like your commentaries but do not have the time to read the full article so I skim but I could listen easier as I am in the kitchen. I wonder if there could be an audio version? Would love to listen while doing dishes etc.

    Note that: “One Oscar, 4 nominations, 4 Golden Globes, 11 nominations...Who’s the Boss?” does not
    contain a link....perhaps in the evening edition? Incidentally, I absolutely love Jon Voight and frankly, until she began making crazy public political comments, I did not even recognize the name "Alyssa Milano." She's a nobody...and now she'll be known as a crazed nobody whose movies or TV shows to which I'll never subject myself in the future. :)
