After I suggested mistaken identity as a likely explanation for Christine Blasey Ford’s certainty that Brett Kavanaugh was her attacker, an article appeared that reinforces that theory.

I had said that both Dr. Ford and Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh seemed utterly sincere in their testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.  Elizabeth Loftus, a cognitive psychologist and professor at the University of California, Irvine, says it’s absolutely possible that both actually ARE sincere.  After spending decades researching human memory –- specifically, how it can change based on suggestion and other factors –- she says it’s very common to misremember details of an experience, particularly a traumatic one.

My Pilot Script for ABC's "The FBI: 2018"

By Pat Reeder 

It’s beginning to look as if there are enough weak-kneed Republican Senators who didn’t eat their Wheaties the way Lindsay Graham did, and who are ready to cave in to the Democrats and delay the Brett Kavanaugh vote yet again until the FBI can perform a (is this a world record yet?) seventh deep background check to make sure he’s not really a drooling, drunken, drug-and-gang-rape ringleader who’s been wearing the world’s best choirboy disguise for nearly four decades. 

It started me thinking how this would sound if it appeared on a reboot of the old TV series, “The FBI.”  I take you now to FBI headquarters, where a staffer for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has just arrived with a request for the agent in charge of federal background investigations.  Imagine Efrem Zimbalist Jr…

"Huckabee" preview

By Mike Huckabee

After a week like this last one, you need to wind down with a new episode of “Huckabee” on TBN, and I have a great one for you!  Sen. Mike Rounds and former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer will be on hand to try to make sense of the sanitarium that DC has turned into.  Investigative journalist Ronald Kessler will tell us about his new book, the first “insider” look at the Trump White House based on real insiders speaking on the record and that isn’t a smear job. Then we’ll take a much-needed break from politics with “Chewbacca Mom” Candace Payne, who’ll teach us how to laugh our troubles away.  I’ll have my own commentaries, some crazy news “in case you missed it,” and a few more surprises. All topped off with terrific music from country star Collin Raye. 

That’s tonight at 8 and 11 EST time (7 and 10 CST), repeated at the same times on Sunday, on TBN.  To find your local TBN outlet, and see full previous episode online, visit

Your Fake News Alert for Saturday:

By Mike Huckabee

One of yesterday’s big stories, waved around like a bloody shirt by Senate Democrats, was that the American Bar Association was calling for a delay in Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS confirmation vote until the FBI investigated the evidence-free allegations against him.  The request was conveyed to Sen. Grassley in a letter from ABA president Robert M. Carlson.  Yeah, about that…

Turns out that Carlson took it upon himself to write the letter and didn’t bother getting the approval of the ABA’s Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary, which rates judges.  The committee issued a swift rebuttal, noting that the committee is independent of the ABA (meaning Carlson had no right to speak for them), and that their previous rating of Kavanaugh was “not affected.”  For the record, that rating was “well-qualified” by unanimous vote. 

Maybe Mr. Carlson should consider running for president of the American Baloney Association.


Israel's big announcement

By Mike Huckabee

I hate to distract the media’s attention from such serious matters as the latest fantasmagorical allegations against Republicans from sleazy porn star lawyers, but this week, they sort of overlooked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealing a bombshell in every sense of the word. 

In an address to the UN in New York, Netanyahu said he was disclosing for the first time that Iran has another secret nuclear storage facility in Tehran containing as much as 300 tons of nuclear-related equipment and material.  Netanyahu alleges that since Israel obtained a cache of Iran’s nuclear secrets and revealed them to the world, Iran has been trying to hide the evidence by clearing out its atomic warehouse and moving its massive stockpile of nuclear materials to other places. He presented visual aids showing the location and capacity of these alleged nuclear facilities.  Netanyahu also praised the US for reimposing sanctions to stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions and blasted European nations for helping Iran bypass sanctions.

In response, Iran denied the allegation, with a spokesman declaring convincingly that the “world will only laugh loudly at this type of false, meaningless and unnecessary speech and false shows.”

I’ve got a pretty good sense of humor, but I’m not laughing.  Are you?

    Terribly disappointing that the Jesuits of America Magazine has withdrawn its endorsement of Judge Kavanaugh, stating in an open letter that even if the allegations are false and uncorroborated, the allegations by themselves are disqualifying. To me, this seems a statement more about the character of JAM than that of Judge Kavanaugh. Apparently JAM wanted to vicariously bask in the glory of his nomination, but is completely unwilling to defend the high virtue they know Judge Kavanaugh has in the face of spurious accusers who exhibit obviously evil intent.
