“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”

Matthew 28:18


By Mike Huckabee

Some media outlets are questioning the reported levels of US military equipment now in the hands of the Taliban. But there's a reason it's hard to establish for certain. Forbes reports that the Biden Administration scrubbed detailed reports from federal websites on what military equipment had been left behind.

But this is not a cover-up; heavens to Betsy, no! They were just trying to protect the safety of our Afghan contacts by removing any content that highlights cooperation between the US and Afghan locals.

Two things questionable about that:

1. I imagine the Taliban would figure out that there had been military cooperation between the US and locals when they happened to find that $80+ billion worth of US military equipment, so the only people it would be hidden from would be outside Afghanistan. You know, people like us.

2. If they care so much about the safety of Afghans who cooperated with us in fighting the Taliban, why did they leave them behind to be murdered by the Taliban?

New Podcast Episode

By Mike Huckabee

As the United States completes its catastrophic exit from Afghanistan, leaving hundreds of Americans and countless Afghan allies behind, Governor Huckabee talks about what this all means for the 20 years spent fighting terror and those we lost doing so, and the safety and security of America moving forward. He continues the discussion with retired Navy SEAL and former special operator Rob O'Neill, who weighs in on the frightening state of American military leadership and what that means for American safety from terror today and into the future.


Texas Democrats update

By Mike Huckabee

The media went all a-flutter over those Texas House Democrats who ran away to DC to block a quorum from passing a bill to make it harder to cheat in elections. They were feted as heroes who were saving democracy. They got to meet top Democrats (and spread COVID to them, as it turned out.) They even got a national hearing as they demanded an end to the Senate filibuster, even though they were only there because they were a minority thwarting the will of the majority themselves.

I said back when that all started that it was a futile political stunt because they couldn’t stop the bill from passing. They had to go back sometime, and when they did, they would be outvoted by the Republicans and it would pass. In the meantime, they were just shirking their duty. Well, enough of them finally went back to form a quorum. The bill passed and was sent to Gov. Greg Abbott for signing. Democracy in action!

Now, how about a bill to make them repay the $40,000 a day they cost Texas taxpayers with this childish piece of political theater?

More Afghanistan news

By Mike Huckabee

There are so many stories out of Afghanistan that are heartbreaking and infuriating that I hate to have to relate them, but sadly, this is the news under President Biden. So in the hopes that this message will actually penetrate his thick border wall of arrogant, defensive stubbornness, I will share these stories:

Among the people Biden left behind to fend for themselves are 24 Sacramento school children who were prevented by the Taliban from reaching the airport and who are now in hiding.

There’s also a report of a pregnant American woman who was trying to get past a checkpoint with her husband when she was kicked in the stomach by the Taliban. She’s now in hiding as well.

And then there’s the story of the Afghan interpreter who actually helped save Biden’s life in 2008 when he and two Senators were in a helicopter that was forced to land in a remote valley due to a snowstorm.

After years of service and helping our soldiers in over 100 firefights, he and his wife and four children are in hiding from the Taliban because their efforts to get out were blocked by bureaucracy. He has a message from his hiding place: “Hello, Mr. President. Save me and my family. Don’t forget me here.”

I hope you’ll join me in praying for the safety of everyone who's been left behind, and for our President to stop congratulating himself on his "extraordinary success" and do something to help all these people, if it’s not already too late.

Accountability for Afghanistan

By Mike Huckabee

I would suggest that the motto of the Biden Administration be “Accountability? What’s that?” if it didn’t have so much competition from “Competence? What’s that?”

But to show just how desperate the Democrats are to doge accountability for the four-alarm dumpster fire that Biden created in Afghanistan, House Democrats blocked efforts by Republican members who are Afghan war vets to introduce a bill requiring the White House to present a plan to bring the Americans Biden left trapped in Afghanistan safely home. Michigan Rep. Debbie Dingell, who was presiding over the chamber, gaveled them out of session, not only blocking the legislation but also their efforts to read the names of the 13 service members who were killed in last week’s suicide bombing at Kabul airport into the Congressional Record.

Dingell shut down House debate as some members shouted at her, “How can you not read the names?” and “Turn your back on your country!”

I will remind you that these are the same House Democrats who arranged the equivalent of a State Funeral for a Capitol Police officer who died after the January Capitol riot that they’re trying to gin up into an actual insurrection attempt, even though he really died of a stroke unrelated to the protest. Yet they won’t even allow the names to be read of military veterans who really did give their lives fighting genuine violent terrorists in the service of their country.

I could tell you what I think about this and the remedy for it, but Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media saved me the trouble by writing an article titled, “Banish Democrats From Office Until They Elect Some Non-Commie Adults.”

Kruiser traces the recent history of the Dem leadership and how it’s separated from regular working Democrats to become an insane, juvenile, far-left madhouse motivated almost entirely by spite against Trump and Republicans. He notes that their adult toddler tantrum has gone from tedious to disturbing to now having a body count, and that’s enough. What must be done? He answers:

“Should we make it to November 2022 relatively intact, it is imperative that American voters who don’t live in the coastal commie bubbles (or Chicago) rise up and make sure that this current crop of Democratic party rulers isn’t allowed anywhere near any kind of power again.


The 2021 Democratic elite are a metastasizing cancer that is rapidly killing a lot of the good in America. Cut that you-know-what out.”

By the way, he makes it clear that he’s not calling for one party rule, only that the voters rid the Democrats, and all of us, of their current insane, America-hating cult. Maybe then, moderate adults like Sen. Krysten Sinema can once again fill the leadership of the Party instead of being a rare outlier whom the leaders are trying to destroy for standing in the way of them destroying the country.

This Mother blames Biden

By Mike Huckabee

The mother of one of our service members killed in Kabul last week is blaming President Biden for her son's death, due to Biden's incompetence in trusting the enemy instead of putting our troops, Afghan allies and all Americans first. And no, this is a different Gold Star mom, not the one you’ve already heard express her fury at Biden.

Gaetz story: Here is why the media stopped mentioning it

By Mike Huckabee

Remember how the media had a field day claiming that outspoken Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz was embroiled in a sex trafficking scandal and would soon be indicted, and how they mocked him for claiming he was the victim of an extortion conspiracy? Well, a Pensacola grand jury has just issued an indictment. It’s against a man who allegedly tried to extort $25 million from Gaetz’s father. I kind of wondered why I hadn’t heard as much about this story recently. Details at the link.

    I was wondering what had happened regarding Matt Gaetz and the allegations against him. Thanks for the update. I can see you are being careful in your comments, no snarkiness there. So we will see, but it seemed apparent to me from the first that Gaetz was a victim, they were after him because he has become effective against the left.

    Democrats, It really does't matter what the person looks like, its the ideology of a Democrat that is so disturbing when one interacts with a Dingell or a DeBalasio or a Biden Schumer Pelosi people like them cause American value to be lost, Most people know what a Democrat is; it's the Anti American, the Deep State, Anti Women, Everything is Racism, they sell new Tech. to our enemies, repel Energy Independence, Cancel Freedom of Speech, Freedoms of your medical wellness and your doctor, the Democrat does not want inventions that make America stronger, the Democrat will sell our new Tech. to our enemies, military is being instructed in CRT, all are Democrat ideologies, When America is sent back to the Stone Age that is Democrat ideology and goal; and that to a Democrat is good. Loose the Democrat ideology and MAGA. Democrats are an offspring of the CCP, Mexican Cartels, and the Islamic Terrorists, and Al Sharpton . What else makes a person a Democrat One would ask; Anything Anti American is the Democrat way. That is why I am disturbed with Democrats. A miserable person with its ideology.

    Think about how the withdrawal from Afghanistan was conducted by the Biden administration. The sudden withdrawal from Bagram without warning to the Afghan army. The information passed to the Taliban on troop movements. The abandonment of U.S. weapons. The swift departure of President Ghani. The canceling of Trump contingency plans for resisting a Taliban advance. It looks like the Biden admin wanted the Taliban to take control of Afghanistan.

    Are the anti-American Democratic leadership incompetent ? Maybe they are motivated by ties to the Chinese Communist Party. Would the CCP rather see Afghanistan controlled by the Taliban or an ally of the U.S. ?
