Friday, President Trump issued a presidential pardon to former Navy submarine machinist Kristian Saucier for taking photos of classified areas in his sub.

Over the past couple of years, as Hillary Clinton has attempted (with friendly FBI agents’ help) to brush off the scandal about her exposing classified information on her unsecured email server as something nobody would be prosecuted for, she’s been dogged by Saucier’s parallel story. At his trial, his attorney argued that it would be unjust and unfair to imprison him for inadvertently taking six photos with classified areas in the background to show his kids someday when the Secretary of State was let off for carelessly exposing 110 classified emails. But the judge rejected his “Clinton defense,” saying Saucier had done something “beyond stupid” (déjà vu) and noting that he’d also allegedly tried to destroy the evidence by smashing his cell phone (déjà vu all over again!)

"Huckabee" preview

By Mike Huckabee

I have a show you cannot miss. I’ll introduce you to a Huck’s Hero and take you on a tour of “Our Kind of Town.” I’ll talk with former Senator Joe Lieberman about why it’s so hard to get anything done in Washington. America’s money guru, Dave Ramsey, will have some tips on taxes, retirement and other financial issues that are worth their weight in gold. And brace yourselves: this week’s musical guests are the multi-platinum, countless award-winning Oak Ridge Boys! All that and more, at 8 pm EST, 7 CST on TBN.

Dreamers praise Trump

By Mike Huckabee

When President Trump sent Obama’s DACA program back to Congress so it could be dealt with constitutionally, he gave lawmakers over five months to come up with a replacement. The March 5 deadline has now come and gone, and Congress still hasn’t passed a bill, despite Trump offering a plan that would have given Democrats far more than they asked for, but in exchange tightened immigration enforcement that they refuse to okay. Courts have extended the deadline, and deportations of the Dreamers (children of illegal immigrants brought here by their parents) are on hold, but Congress doesn’t appear likely to pass anything soon.

This has led to a rather remarkable turnaround, in which some of the Dreamers, a group Democratic leaders thought would spearhead their upcoming new majority based on immigration, are praising Trump and attacking Democrats for pretending to care about them while playing politics with their lives so they can point fingers at their opponents.

Details are at the link. According to the polls, a large majority of Americans want a solution to keep the Dreamers from being deported. The President wants that, too, and both parties say they want it. Yet the party that claims to want it the most has blocked it from happening for so long that the deadline has passed with nothing being accomplished. I can’t think of a better example of how Washington works.

A corporate Huck's Hero

By Mike Huckabee

Here’s a different spin on one of my favorite features: a salute to a corporate Huck’s Hero. Big props to Home Depot for committing $50 million over the next decade to training veterans and their families and at-risk youth for jobs in construction-related industries.

Experts misunderstand Trump again

By Mike Huckabee

Speaking of people who continually underestimate and fail to “get” Trump’s negotiating style, the Atlantic has an article in which self-proclaimed experts on foreign policy labor mightily to avoid giving him credit for bringing North Korea to the table, or try to find any other reasons than Trump’s refusal to be cowed for why Kim Jong Un is suddenly talking about denuclearization rather than nuking L.A.

Why, they must know more about diplomacy than that dumb vulgarian Trump (they went to Ivy League schools and own suits with striped pants!) How is it possible that their “smart diplomacy” resulted in two decades of escalating threats, while one year of Trump’s “bellicosity” (a word they learned at Yale) has seemingly brought Rocket Man to heel? It couldn’t possibly be something as simple as “They’re not as smart as they think they are,” could it? Naaaah, that’s unpossible!

For those who still think Trump is a moron who doesn’t know the game he’s playing even as he just keeps on beating them at it, note this gag he told at last weekend’s Gridiron Dinner, which works on three levels: as a hilarious self-deprecating joke, a signal to his deranged critics that he hears their disparagement of him and knows exactly what he’s doing, and a subtle message to North Korea to keep them uncertain of what might happen if they cross him. This isn’t just chess, it’s three-dimensional chess:

“I won’t rule out direct talks with Kim Jong-Un. I just won’t. As far as the risk of dealing with a madman is concerned, that’s his problem, not mine.”
