This week, I’m taking a break from the news to recount some personal stories shared with me a few years ago by my radio listeners who enjoyed my book, “A Simple Christmas.”

Recently, police officers have become targets of hatred, assaults and even deadly violence. Right now is a perfect time to stop and reflect on the many ways in which police officers and other first responders such as firefighters and EMTs give up their holidays so that we can enjoy ours in safety. Many also go above and beyond the call of duty by performing incredible volunteer work. One of those was a listener of mine named Randy, a retired police sergeant from Wyoming. He shared a memory of a time when playing Santa Claus should have come with hazardous duty pay.

New Clint Eastwood movie

By Mike Huckabee

Clint Eastwood’s next movie, “The 15:17 to Paris,” doesn’t open until February 9, but I hung my new 2018 calendar early just so I could circle the date.  How often do you not only get to see a movie directed by Clint Eastwood, telling the true story of three American heroes foiling a terrorist attack, but the film doesn’t star actors portraying those heroes?  It stars the real-life heroes themselves.  Talk about cutting out the middle man!


Arts in the Armed Forces

By Mike Huckabee

Clint Eastwood isn’t the only Hollywood name giving a break to real life American heroes.  Adam Driver, star of the new “Star Wars” films and a Marine veteran, wants to give his comrades a chance to break into theater and share the military experience.  We seldom get realistic depictions of that in entertainment, since we seldom get stories of the military written by people who’ve actually been part of it.  So Driver founded a group called Arts in the Armed Forces that’s looking for the best play written by a veteran or active duty military member.  The winner receives $10,000, a staged reading of the script, and a presentation of the award on Broadway.


A bright spot for Trump Admin 

By Mike Huckabee

As I’ve mentioned before, one of President Trump’s few wins in the Senate this past year has been with judicial confirmations.  Two weeks ago, they confirmed his 19th appointee, which puts him five ahead of Obama’s first year.  The latest is former Texas solicitor general James Ho, who will be the first Asian-American judge on the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.  He’s also an advocate for birthright citizenship, which is in opposition to Trump’s position.  So you can’t say Trump is stacking the court only with people who look and think like him. 

Well, that’s not accurate: his opponents will keep saying it.  It just isn’t true.

Warning sign for the 2018 elections

By Mike Huckabee

The election of Democrat Doug Jones in Alabama has shaved the GOP majority in the Senate even closer, and thrown some fear into Republicans that they could lose that majority next year.  It’s also sparked talk that this might goose Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is 81, into retiring soon so his replacement can be picked by a Republican President and confirmed by the GOP Senate.  If he waits and the Democrats take over the Senate in 2018, they’re likely to block any Trump nominee for at least another two years.  And if a Democrat becomes President in 2020 with a Democratic Senate, the Constitution could be heading into a paper shredder.  

This should also throw a scare into Republican voters.  I know it’s hard to work up enthusiasm considering how disappointing this Congress has been.  But they should remember that huge wave of relief they felt at dodging the bullet of Hillary Clinton stacking the Supreme Court.  One of the few things that the Senate has been accomplishing is fast confirmation of Trump judicial appointees to lower courts, which Obama had stacked with liberal activists.  Jones got elected in Alabama mostly because Republicans sat the election out.  Imagine once again having to worry about the Bill of Rights hanging by the votes of a majority of lifetime-appointed, unelected liberal SCOTUS Justices.  That alone should be enough to propel Republicans off their couches and into the voting booths in 2018.


Sarcasm sprinkled donuts

By Mike Huckabee

Congratulations to the LGBT activist Facebook mob that bullied a local donut shop in Maine into not partnering with the Salvation Army to help a local family in need for Christmas.  And then scaring the owners into apologizing for offending the mob.  You are truly the most principled, moral, high-minded mob since the days of the French Revolution.
